The creative force

We have been taught that Jehovah is the driving force behind all that exists.  End of discussion!   Till now!  It is time to "think again" about this "written in stone" doctrine.  I am willing to argue that doctrine, based on two points:

1. on something, that, in my opinion, is quite new to science. It is known as the Akashic field.

2. and on what the Bible does say about Jehovah.

The following is from Erwin Laszlo in Science and the Akashic Field.

An Integral Theory of Everything writes: The akashic records (akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning "sky", "space" or "aether") is a term used in theosophy ... to describe a compendium of (mystical) knowledge encoded in a non-physical plane of existence.  These records contain all knowledge of human experience and the history of the cosmos.  They are metaphorically described as a library; other analogies commonly found in discourse on the subject include a "universal supercomputer" and the "Mind of God”.

Mystics and sages have long maintained that there exists an interconnecting cosmic field at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic record.  Recent discoveries in the new field of vacuum physics now show that this Akashic field is real and has its equivalent in the zero-point field that underlies space itself.  This field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness. This zero-point Akashic-field-or "A-field"- is not only the original source of all things that arise in time and space; it is also the constant and enduring memory of the universe.  It holds the record of all that ever happened in life, on Earth, and in the cosmos and relates it to all that is yet to happen.

As I understand Mr Laszlo, he says that this "A-field" is the foundation of space itself, or, in other words, everything that exists.  It is possible to strongly argue that Jehovah is the foundation of space, of atoms and galaxies, even of all consciousness in the universe, except His own, of course.  The problem with accepting that as fact is that the Bible has lesser things to say about Jehovah.

When we finally accept that the “Akashic field”, or something of that nature exists and that it is the origin of all things, physical and spiritual, we can set our minds free from the need to make the Jehovah of the Bible the great creator of all that exists. 

Once our minds grasp this idea as a reality we are left with a God, Jehovah, who is actually in a realm where we can believe that He cares for humans.  We can then believe in Him as a God who is great enough to be worshipped as our God. Then it is possible to believe that He has a son; that He is "finite enough" to care about life on earth but not “infinite enough” to control everything that happens in the universe.  

More about this in my next post.
