In part 2, we go to ground zero—the beginning of creation, before the formation of the body.
In the beginning, there was nothing. On the other hand, we can also safely say that everything was already there. Well, there was nothing material but only the thought of creation, the endless energy of creation. You need not be religious or spiritual to accept that premise; just stay on this path to explore the how and why of it (the answer to why is simple but will be answered in a later chapter).
When you think about the initial stage of the body, you probably think about a fetus in a womb. Yet, the body is actually the sum of all the processes involved in bringing the body to its current state.
It all starts with a thought.
Before a building is built, there is a desire by someone to have a building. Then the architect envisions and designs the entire building in his mind before he draws the first line. To put pencil down on paper requires thought; where to put the first dot and draw a line to another point requires thought. The architect won’t be able to draw the first line if he does not have the beginning and the end of it already in his mind. All this happens before any materials are brought in to build the building.
The thought of the original desire and the architect are joined together to set the course of the building. You can see and experience the thought as you enter the building—if it was made for leisure or work, perhaps comfortable or not. So, the thought is a significant part of the whole process, and it will remain with the matter created during its entire existence.
There would be no fetus if there was no connection between male and female. Their act begins with the thought to unite their abilities to procreate. While one brings a seed, the other supplies the vessel to hold and nourish the seed.
Their thoughts start the connection on the spiritual level and gradually—through a process, the connection generates matter (the seeds) that is implanted in the vessel (womb רחם). Then, the vessel takes care of the growth process which is a transformation of energy to what we refer to as matter. This creates a fully functioning body: one that thinks, talks, and creates more of its own kind. The key word is continuity. Please remember this term as it’s a key to the whole of existence; this will be discussed a little later in this series.
The way the body forms in the womb teaches us that this amazing process is actually a spiritual transformation. The famous “Material Girl” turned spiritual after giving birth to her first child. A mother that is fully aware of this amazing process cannot be non-spiritual. The mother does not simply assemble body parts to form a little person. She transforms the elements of Air, Water, Earth and Fire into energy in mysterious ways which ultimately result in the creation of another living being. And, all it took to start this process were a desire and a thought.
For those of you wondering about unwanted pregnancies (“accidents,” rape, etc.), please note that those are outside the natural and pure process. Those types of pregnancies relate to the evolution of corrupted thoughts.
