Wholeness is as much of an illusion as separateness. The recognition of wholeness requires, in the least, the contemplation of there being a “seperate”, for without seperation the definition of something being or becoming whole is incomplete. Therefore, because God knows what it is to be One and is seeking the experience of being seperate, our goal as being on a spiritual path would be twofold. First, we become enlightened to a point where we can recognize that there is a One who is complete and whole, and second is to recognize that you were created because this One desires the experience of being incomplete and partial.
In the creative process (the process which attempts to bring unique experiences about, the process of seperation and reflection) I would think the goal is to have UNIQUE ongoing experiences of being “other” in order to experience and reflect on “self” in an attempt to know yourself and therefore know God (your reflection is God’s reflection of God-self in an attempt to know himself and therefore know You. You, in your uniqueness and wholeness are a microcosm of God pursuing self discovery, self discovery being the method in which God is experiencing himself through duality and seperateness, which are the tools you are using to discover your true self).
Now, because the One desires this experience and this reflection – seperateness, our goal should not be to shatter this game that was created by him, but to become enlightened enough to recognize the One and fulfill his desire of experiencing this self as seperate and reflect upon your
experiences while reflecting on the God-gift of your uniqueness, knowing that that uniqueness is inherant in the attributes of God and cannot be destroyed. In other words, rejoice in the experience of being alive and unique and meditate on its significance in relation to everything else (the Whole).
Uniqueness is also something that should not be ignored because uniqueness is a reflection of being whole which is an attribute of the One. Being unique means being like no other, being only One. Reflecting on our uniqueness give us the power to reflect on an attribute of God while still being separate. It sums up this method of self discovery.
The danger is in going too far one way or the other. The game is the play between polarity, between opposites. Remove an opposite and reflection and experience falls away, creation ceases to exist.
It is all about creation, the experience of that creation, reflection of the experience of that creation, the recognition of the gift to God this experience is in his/your journey of self discovery, and finally, the role that “gift of reflection” of the experience of that creation plays in bringing about more creation, which in turn creates new experience, which creates new reflection, which creates new gifts, which creates more self discovery, which creates new creation, which creates new experience, which creates new reflection, which creates new gifts, which creates more self……
