Formless Creation – Sharon Lyn Shepard

Formless Creation

While sitting quietly in the pre-dawn morning, I was observing the subtle rippling energies within and around me. At some point, I noticed the soft iridescent petals of a flower drawing together to form a rose. This rose was not opening from a bud as we are accustomed. The petals were drawing themselves together to form itself from the essence of the unseen. I watched with fascination as the rose came into form, undulated for awhile, and then dissolved back into the primordial source of creation.

The beauty of this moment held my attention with a new appreciation of creation. A huge smile of awareness spread across my face. Every cell within me lit up with this new realization. Creation does not need to follow a linear pattern, from seed to manifestation to death. Free of the time/space continuum, it has the ability to draw to itself that which it desires to experience without the need to maintain form. Creation is alive and constantly thriving whether we see it or not. Life exists whether it is in form, or formless.

I realized how intent humans are on the result rather than the miraculous process of creation. How we only value form despite the fact that most of creation does not have, nor maintain form. It is only the human perspective that holds form in place. The purity of our consciousness does not require form. Indeed we enjoy playing with form, but it is not a requirement of life.

I could share more words with my creative musings, but that will only take us more deeply into the human’s need to mentally understand that which exists beyond understanding. Instead, I leave you with this question:

How much life experience are we missing by only focusing on form and how much more can we allow?
