|Light and Dark - Digital art by Ashok Malhotra|
Consciousness observing the mind generates love and hatred, joy and sorrow. The human mind plays with opposites of heat and cold, dark and light, lies and truth. The underlying consciousness is a manifestation of what is called dark matter by scientists in living beings, just as gravity is one of its manifestations in inanimate matter. It is the source of feelings and emotions that arise from the consciousness. Fire cannot burn it nor can water make it wet. It is beyond the physical laws because it is a source of them. Focused on an individual life form, it is what sages call a soul. It is but a part of the sea of dark matter that pervades the created universe and is a source of it all. It has been termed as dark matter by scientists but a more correct terminology is eternal matter because it existed before the created universe came into being and will continue to exist even after the created universe dissolves in it for yet another birth. It is neither dark nor bright but the source of both. It begins the creation of the universe by creating light and separating it from the dark i.e. by creation of photons and anti photons that gradually coalesce into matter to bring forth the stars, planet and life. And while the universe exists, eternal matter is what holds it together in place.
With life is created the mind, a repository of the physical senses attached to the mind. The mind experiences lies and truth, the soul experiences joy and sorrow for attraction and repulsion are rooted in its forces such as gravity. A consciousness withdrawn from the mind, as some rare yogis do, experiences its own eternal self, eternal bliss.
A life form in its journey through life encounters other life forms, the good and the compassionate full of love and the wicked and selfish full of jealousy and hatred. The soul encountering the wicked suffers in anguish but under the watchful eye of the universal field of eternity so that it suffers no more than is necessary for its experience and growth. The loving are remembered in joy consciousness for a time and when they recede to the depths of time they recede as light and become a permanent part of light and bliss. The wickedness of the wicked is forgotten with time and once forgotten it has no existence just as a lie has no existence after it is forgotten while a truth is forever. The wickedness is moved into the bottomless pit of darkness. Truth arises from love, and love from truth, and both emerge from light and eternal matter being two facets of the same thing.
Even eternal matter is an incorrect terminology because matter is only born of this eternal truth just as antimatter is born from it, when darkness is separated from the light after It has been willed let there be light.
