~Dvaita~

Dvaita is a word in Sanskrit that means “duality” or “dualism.” In its broadest sense, dvaita can refer to any concept that there are two principles or truths that exist completely separately and independently.

Dvaita is best known as the name of an important school of Vedanta, a philosophical system closely related to yoga. The Dvaita Vedanta school, unlike the other two main Vedanta schools, teaches that God is separate to and distinct from individual souls. In Dvaita philosophy, God takes on a personal role. He is perceived to be an eternal being that governs, controls and maintains the whole universe.

Poetry {20} ~ MICROCOSM OF THE MACROCOSM

We are the microcosm to the macrocosm
We are microscopic
A blip in cosmic time
Do you hear the sound of the chimes?
We are the universe expressing itself through our eyes
What you give out you get
Don’t forget
The Universal laws
Guiding your very exsistence
The Law of Divine Oneness
We are all made of the same energetic quantum fabric, we are one
The Law of Vibration
Everything is made up of energies that vibrates at frequencies
The Law of Action
Faith and action will get you where you need to go on your path
The Law of Correspondence
As above, so below, everything that is above is also reflected below
The Law of Cause & Effect
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction
The Law of Compensation
Also known as karma, what you put out into the universe you will receive
The Law of Attraction
We must align our thoughts with what we wish in order to attract what we desire
The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
Changing our energy to benefit those around us
The Law of Relativity
Putting things you are going through into perspective
The Law of Polarity
There is a polar opposite of everything
The Law of Rhythm
There is a perfect and natural rhythm in everything
The Law of Gender
Both masculine and feminine energies are in everything and everyone
Remember these
And you will flow in the breeze
Of this cosmos, this soul experience, these transient moments we have on mother Gaia
We are blessed
Now we can rest.

Mythology {2} ~ Creation Stories {1} ~ The Hindu

In Hinduism the universe is millions of years old. In line with the Hindu belief in reincarnation, the universe we live in is not the first or indeed the last universe.

For Hindus the universe was created by Brahma, the creator who made the universe out of himself.

After Brahma created the world, it is the power of Vishnu which preserves the world and human beings.

As part of the cycle of birth, life and death it is Shiva who will ultimately destroy the universe. This is not necessarily as bad as it might sound because it allows Brahma to start the process of creation all over again.

Examples of how the origins of the universe are explained in Hinduism include:

~A lotus flower grew from Lord Vishnu’s navel with Brahma sitting on it. Brahma separated the flower into three parts – the heavens, the Earth and the sky.
~Out of loneliness, Brahma split himself into two to create a male and a female. From this male and female all beings were created.
~Another story makes reference to life coming from the cracking of an enormous egg, which is the life from which the universe is born.
~The Hymn of Creation from the Rig Veda concludes that nobody knows how the universe came into being and even questions whether Brahman knows.
~Some Hindu texts offer a more scientific explanation based on the evolution of primary elements from a single source.

These accounts, and others, were written many centuries ago in or around what we now know as India. They were not necessarily intended to be taken as literal scientific truth, but are indicators of the complexity and infinite nature of the universe.
