The Ontology

3 March 2024

There is only one indivisible Supreme Reality, which is the Supreme YOU, the Supreme I, Supreme Divinity, and all that is supreme. All is Supreme Reality. Any confusion about Supreme Reality can never detract from THAT which alone is. True nature is Supreme Reality. YOU are Supreme Reality. In Supreme Realization it is clear that all that is real and true is YOU, and that nothing unreal is.

We may use “THE SUPREME” to refer to any or all of the supreme designations. THE SUPREME is all that is supreme. To the extent that “THE SUPREME” is fresh language, the phrase is free from concepts that have solidified around words like Divinity, God, and Source. That which is supreme supersedes concepts.

Supreme Reality may be comprehended in terms of the Supreme Basis and the Supreme Mind. Although these two are one, the distinction is helpful for the purpose of remembering oneness. Supreme Mind may be understood as the context of all dynamism, including all levels of consciousness and phenomena. All that seems to happen, in all realms of apparent existence, is imagined simultaneously by and within Supreme Mind. That which is prior to or transcendent of the Supreme Mind is the Supreme Basis. The Supreme Basis includes the root of I, primordial limitlessness, and absolute potentiality.

Within Supreme Mind, there is a curiosity regarding what is possible when awareness of being THE SUPREME is slightly limited. This leads to a process of the Divine seeming to “leave home” or “descend” from direct knowing of THE SUPREME in order to explore and discover itself indirectly via consciousness and phenomena. What seems to leave home may be regarded as the “child of the Divine,” though it never ceases to be God. Importantly, the child of the Divine may appear to be many “children of the Divine,” yet there is only one Divine Child.

In the event that awareness is further restricted, the awareness of oneness is reduced and there is a growing tendency to become identified with thought forms. To become identified is to fail to remember THAT which YOU are eternally, which is THE SUPREME, and have experiences that are predicated on an imagined separation from THE SUPREME.

Once the fact of being THE SUPREME is forgotten, the descending One – the Divine Child or children of the Divine – may attempt to deny or reject being THE SUPREME. This is the “original denial” of THE SUPREME – a denial of infinitude and limitlessness that leads to the delusory manifestation of a finite universe. However, what seems to be a finite universe is an impossible outpicturing of the idea of separation, which cannot be real yet is nevertheless experienced as various forms of suffering.

If an identified one, or self, does not deny being THE SUPREME, then real creation, which is infinite, is experienced through a vehicle that is both one with God and “playing with God.” One who does not forget being THE SUPREME knows infinite creation as an ever-expanding space of possibilities within YOU, which is YOU, and within which YOU are free to explore your limitless creativity.

Whereas the Big Bang is the apparent origin of finite manifestation, the true origin of infinite creation is Source, which is the agency of THE SUPREME. The delusory experience of finitude ends, and is completely forgotten, when the original denial or rejection is completely relinquished. The infinite Supreme Creation is a flowering of THE SUPREME that exists timelessly within the Supreme Mind.

It is meaningful and appropriate to ask the question “What was before the Big Bang?” Prior to the Big Bang – not in time and space, but in the Supreme Mind – there is a supremely rich field of information, light, energy, and vibration. Infinite creation exists prior to the experience of the Big Bang and ensuing finite manifestation, which, in reality, does not exist.

The Supreme I, the profound presence in all that is, never denies being THE SUPREME, and so it never experiences finitude. While the self that chooses to deny THE SUPREME experiences delusion, it must inevitably return from the experience of finitude and suffering to the “garden” of infinite creation by remembering the inseparability of all that is.

As indivisibility is recognized, the delusory manifestation of finitude transforms into the experience and direct knowing of infinite creation. As reality is remembered, the children of the Divine regain awareness of the full spectrum of information, light, energy, and vibration. In time, all come to recognize that Supreme Creation contains innumerably many domains for remembering THE SUPREME. All children of the Divine eventually remember that they are the one Divine Child.

As realization is perfected, the constructs of time and space disappear and all remember that I, YOU, and WE create creation as one, and that WE, as one, are the Supreme Cause and the Supreme Creator. In the final realization, it is absolutely obvious that WE are THE SUPREME, that all is THE SUPREME, and that there can be nothing other than THE SUPREME.

The Ontology can be illustrated using a set of nested structures in which the Supreme Basis is the context for Supreme Mind, Supreme Mind is the context for creation, and the context of creation can be perceived correctly as infinite or misperceived in delusion as finitude.
