Infinite Being and the Ancient Hindu Trinity of Original Creation

By Owen Waters

The principle of Original Creation employs three aspects of Original Consciousness. It is stated as:

Creation = Thought + Feeling + Motion

Original Creation is Original Thought set into motion along with Original Feeling in order to propagate the universe as we know it.

Motion is the key aspect of Original Consciousness which brought the dance of Thought and Feeling into play, making all else in the universe possible. Infinite Being is the underlying state of all consciousness which projected itself into this Trinity of Original Creation.

In my recent study of ancient Hindu philosophy, I found that what Hindus call Brahman is exactly the original consciousness that I refer to as Infinite Being. I then went on to study the Hindu definitions of the Trinity which created the universe.

The Hindu Trinity consists of the principles called Brahma (that's Brahma without an 'n' on the end), Vishnu and Shiva. While these three principles have deity-like names, Hindus are well aware that they represent principles of original consciousness and not person-like deities. However, in order to describe the many characteristics of these facets of original consciousness, they are given names and then extensive and poetic descriptions of their many attributes.

Basically, the traditional attributes of the Hindu Trinity are summarized as being represented by the principles of Creation, Preservation and Destruction. So, Brahma is the aspect of the underlying Brahman which brings forth creation. Vishnu is the aspect that preserves and sustains the universe. Shiva dances unceasingly, bringing motion to the universe.

Defining Shiva as that which brings destruction probably originated as a yin-yang type of viewpoint, as a counterbalance to Brahma's function of creation. So, if you imagine creation and destruction as positive and negative counterbalances, then the neutral preservative quality of Vishnu is situated in between the two extremes.

I see the Trinity from a slightly different viewpoint, with Brahma as a Father-God archetype, Vishnu as a preservative Mother-God archetype, and Shiva as the motion which makes the expression of the universe possible. In this viewpoint, Shiva brings, not destruction, but life through his eternal dance of motion.

Yet another way to view the Original Trinity is to see it as being represented by the ancient sound of Creation, the "A-U-M." Mystics in deep meditation have often "heard" this as the subtle sound which continually radiates from the Sun. This etheric, non-physical sound has the attributes of the sounds "A" (creative), "U" (preservative), and "M" (motion.)

Successful acts of conscious creation by humans follow exactly the same formula as Original Creation, with two essential modifications in order to suit the human sphere of manifestation. More on that at a later date!

Peter Shepherd notes: As I expect you have noticed, the articles by Owen Waters are uniformly full of wisdom and insight... his books, therefore, are not to be missed. Owen's new e-book, Discover Your Purpose in Life, will not only show you how to discover the purpose of your inner being and your own destiny, it will take you on a voyage of inner discovery. On this journey, you will pass through the layers of what used to be unsolved mysteries. "At each step, we will go deeper still, always using the question 'why' to go deeper, until we reach the final layer and discover the answer to the ultimate mystery in life."

I believe the book offers precisely what many need to know, in order to launch their life into the spiritual dimension, and to be part of the new age of higher vibration consciousness. This amounts to knowing one's inner nature, and as a result, one's life purpose. The trinity of life, love and truth need to be experienced, not just 'known about,' and Owen's e-book gives enough guidance for that process of true illumination to take place. It's available at a special intro price at the moment and I highly recommend you to purchase.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
