A little bit about this little self called Patrick

Dear fellow seekers, sisters and brothers.

Here I would like to share a little bit about my little self. This version of you that is currently called Patrick. :slight_smile:

What started my spiritual journey, back in early 2011, was this book:

The Grand Design (2010) by Stephen Hawking Ph.D, CH, CBE, FRS, FRSA.

It’s quite readable even for a layman.

In his book our eminent other self is trying to show us that God is not needed to explain the multiverse or our existence. What is demonstrated is that Infinity alone is needed for this, which of course seems evident for readers of the Law of One. It should be understood then that the image of God that the author has is the thunderous immortal old man sitting atop his mountain. :slight_smile: For most of us here God is indeed Infinity itself.

Having been raised in the Catholic faith, I had the old man God image too at first. But growing up, I only kept the God is Love portion of this teaching. Weighting everything I read in the Bible by this idea that God is Love and keeping only the parts of the teachings that fit this idea.

I am a very scientific person and this book was the perfect diving platform for me. Instead of convincing me that a Creator was not needed to explain everything, it opened my eyes to the fact that the Infinity itself had to be the Creator whether this Infinite Creator was conscious of the creation or not.

Then I started reading about an experiment being conducted within hospitals in England where they put messages on top of high shelves and other places in operating rooms, where one cannot normally reach to read. They want to know if those coming back from Near-Death Experiences, during surgery, will be able to give information about those messages. This would provide evidence that consciousness can exist outside of the body. As far as I know, no results have been published yet.

This experiment gave me the desire to know more about NDEs and so I started reading lots of them and was fascinated. While reading those accounts, I started seeing a pattern that was not really part of the stories related. It was a pattern of my own beliefs, scientific and spiritual, up to that point, starting to suddenly coagulate together and make sense.

This marks the turning point in space/time where I quickly started awakening to spirituality. I was not reading on these subjects out of simple interest anymore. I was reading to gather information. My Faith that physicality is not the only reality was now solidifying itself and there was no doubt left in myself about it.

I found myself looking into conspiracies and I am still a member on multiple conspiracy related forums. Then on ATS, I started reading the Hidden_Hand material. This material helped me bridge the gap in between conspiracies and the spiritual nature of our reality. Since, the material refers to the Ra material, I then started reading the Law of One.

For me, as is the case for many, reading the Law of One was like remembering instead of learning. It tied everything together and forever changed this little Self living out this current incarnation as Patrick.

This tidbit from Q’uo was another defining moment for me. Applying this to my life has made everything much simpler and is helping me to remain in joy as much as possible. I sincerely believe this is the best way I can be of service to others and is the best way I can help change the world, by remaining joyful while I interact with others. It brings me a non-judgmental attitude and it colors all my actions/interactions.

Thank you for sharing Patrick. I like that Stephen Hawking played an integral role in your own spiritual awakening. I would be interested in hearing his thoughts about a less religious, less personal God integrated to the concept of infinity.

I can certainly see your spirit alive in these words! And it speaks to what is perhaps my favorite quote from the Law of One.

The best way of service to others is the constant attempt to seek to share the love of the Creator as it is known to the inner self.

Hawking’s Infinity as the “creator” of the multiverse is not intelligent or aware. He’s just saying that our existence is guaranteed since all possibilities have an existence. So there is no Creator per se in Hawking’s views. All that is required is Infinity itself, he says. In a sense, I think Ra could actually agree on that since the first step of the Creation is “Infinity became aware”. So Infinity is still the only requirement in the Law of One. It was there “before” it became aware. Of course, there is no “before” and that is the mystery. How it became aware and Ra is basically trying to tell us that Infinity becoming aware and all the following “steps” are all truly simultaneous. So it is not wrong to say that Infinity was always aware since being aware was always a possibility and so always had an existence.

Just curious. How would you describe the love of the Creator as it is experienced by or known to your inner self?

The “tidbit from Q’uo” made me smile, really made my day, thank you ! :smiley:

Thank you for sharing you story.

I think its funny that people consider Infinity as unending numbers, or mostly tangible
considerations. Or even rather potential endlessly playing out. The only thing that exists is God(you). The only reason these circumstances are being explored is we(you) decided to. There is no other to do these things. Even technology is some play on time-conscience where you are standing in the gap and filling in the spaces, there is no other. Infinity- the doer as a description that cant be understood because from our viewpoint we cant see the real ins and outs.
