I was reading a book on Ayurveda recently and came across these words:
"According to Sankhya, behind creation there is a state of pure existence or awareness, which is beyond time and space, has no beginning or end, and no qualities. Within pure existence there arises a desire to experience itself, which results in disequilibrium and causes the manifestation of primordial physical energy.
This energy is the creative force of action, a source of form that has qualities. Matter and energy are closely related: when energy takes form, we tend to think of it in terms of matter rather than energy. The primordial physical energy is imponderable and cannot be described in words. The most subtle of all energies, it is modified until ultimately our familiar mental and physical world manifests itself.
Pure existence and primordial energy unite for the dance of creation to happen. Pure existence is simply "observing" the dance. Primordial energy and all that flows from it cannot exist except in pure existence or awareness.
The energy of the dance of creation arises out of pure awareness or existence, the unlimited energy of the universe; this energy is love."
Since I tend to be 'science minded' and seem to understand things better when they are explained as such, I liked this. But I will also say that in my own mind, I have no trouble correlating science and religion. To me this is just another explanation of God/Nature/ The Force, etc.

And before I take off to run errands today, let me say that I'm sorry that I haven't posted much lately and haven't read or commented too much either. It's the end of the semester and we have to have our projects finished... so time has been short. Plus we had a clay club sale at the school yesterday and it took up most of the day. We usually have a sale around November (before Christmas) that lasts a few days, but this was our first spring (or Mother's Day) sale and it was only for the one day. But classes will be over soon and I hope to catch up on my blog reading and posting then.
