The universe is self-created, self-maintained and self-dissolved. From pure ether the universe manifests. On pure ether the universe sustains like bubbles on water, and into pure ether they dissolve. This pure ether is the pure Consciousness, the intelligent, unmanifested energy that has no beginning or end. Water remains eternally. The bubbles formed out of water do not. Spiritual journey simply means being in pursuit of this understanding, this realization, this experience that we are essentially not the bubble, but the ocean that sustains it while it is.
