OR HOW IS
OUR CONSUMMER SOCIETY LEADING US STRAIGHTFORWARD TO THE ARMS OF NOTHINGNESS -
BUSHKA’S REFLECTIONS ON LIFE, CREATION AND THE SENSE OF OUR EXISTENCE
What’s that thing called God?
What is God, His/ Her relationship to us, why do we exist and
what's our expected role in the World - all these questions are probably as old
as the human kind itself. I was asking these questions since my childhood and
was trying to find answers during all my life. I searched in different
philosophical, scientific and religious systems, but none of them was able to
provide me with satisfactory explanations. I must say that the moment when I
started to see clearer arrived maybe surprisingly after intensive study of
modern physics. Until then I was a stubborn atheist, educated in the
materialistic thought system of "Scientific Communism" of the former
Eastern block. I suddenly realized that principles of particle physics did not
at all exclude the existence of God, but in the contrary could lead exactly to
an opposite result. On this page I would like to share with you my conclusions
related to those abovementioned ancestral questions. I do not pretend to hold
any unique and absolute truth - what I am saying here below is just the result
of my life-long search and cogitation.
God, whom I am calling here an Entity or a Being, is surely not any such a kind
of Being inclined to interfere with the course of human affairs, and definitely
is not driven with the interest in individual human destinies. There had to be a
specific reason why God at once created the Universe and us, which would explain
why our Universe seems so much to be as "tailor made" to human kind. I
think that God needed to create the Universe in order to provide for His/ Her
reproduction and we are indispensable tools or intermediaries in this
procreation process. I believe that God intervenes in human lives only when
it is essential for the preservation of the right direction of humanity
evolution - indispensable for attaining of His/ Her objectives. Nevertheless, I
would even dare to doubt about this very hypothesis as I am more tempted to
believe that God is rather prone to letting the things take their own course
because when a specific breeding experiment does not succeed at the first
attempt, it can be easily repeated as God dwells outside of Space and Time - God
is eternal and has no reason to hurry and certainly isn’t subject to
What does the Universe produce?
In the light of recent discoveries on the “missing matter”
in the Universe we might assume that it might be expanding and collapsing
periodically; and if it’s so - then we should enquire after the reason why.
What the aim and the purpose are? Universe is created, Life is conceived, and
all this get mercilessly destructed. All begins from an infinitely small
particle, an infinitely massive and in the same time infinitely tiny germ, which
suddenly expands by means of the Big Bang into the new Universe. And after some
17 or more billions of years it collapses during a reverse process to
recover its original volume and form.
Thereby from a material point of view, nothing is being created nor lost.
That’s why we have to turn our attention toward the realm of spiritual world.
When a person dies, the soul leaves the body (or at least some people including
me believe this). Generally it is conceded that a soul has no material
substance, and that might be the reason why it would be probably impossible to
ever furnish scientific evidence of its existence. Our psyche serves as a kind
of a bridge between the soul and the material world and during certain states of
consciousness it is downright becoming a bridge to God. If I am right, then the
soul should not be bound by physical limitations of our Universe, and this could
mean that here we've got that significant product which might represent a valid
reason for the merry-go-round of Universe creations and destructions. But why is
this soul so much important and necessary, for whom and what for?
Are we any kind of a hatchery?
Oriental beliefs in reincarnation say that we would be
reincarnating from the lower forms of life to the higher, culminating in the
human form under which we should achieve the state of enlightenment – the
nirvana – when our souls get merged with God (although on the other hand we
might undergo a degenerative process and return to some of the lower forms when
the development of our soul was neglected and we burdened our karma).
In my view, all souls are a projection of God in our Universe. We all are part
of One - individual beings, but like the leafs of one tree. Our life experience
offers us a chance to improve ourselves and to grow spiritually - to become a
better person, a spiritually developed being. I believe that the reason for the
existence of our Universe subsides at the very moment when the great majority of
souls complete this process. At that time the enlightened souls constituting the
potential of Earth will fuse into a brand new Entity – a new God (maybe
together with other non-human(?) souls which had undergone a similar
transformation in different corners of the Universe). Therefore I believe that
the original Entity existing beyond our Time and Space is using us this way to
reproduce It-self. It creates a Universe, let life develop within it up to the
form of intelligent beings gifted with an ability to improve and to develop
their own souls. And when the number of enlightened (improved) souls reaches the
critical point necessary for the creation of a new Entity, this new God is born,
the Universe dies and the non-enlightened, unutilized souls return into the
Entity. This might be in my opinion the reason behind the cyclic character of
Is it of any concern to us?
The question we should ask is, how many Universes have to be
created by this Entity before one finally succeeds? And from this one unwinds
another question – is our Universe destined to give birth to a new God, or is
it condemned to become just one of many other prematurely terminated, failed
experiments? The Entity wouldn’t care – it is patient and eternal, living in
its undefined Time - so it’s only up to ourselves, it depends on us if we take
a good care of our souls and thus fulfill the sense of our existence, or if we
go mindlessly on in accumulation of material possessions, destruction of Mother
Nature and of spiritual patrimony of the human kind, until we reach the moment
of final destruction caused by our own society and by our own means.
Maybe it is a good thing that the mankind inadvertently slipped on the present
wrong, materialistic path because the day when it matures we will hopefully
understand that we need to look in another direction, and then – although
after having paid the price of great sacrifices – we will set out for the
right road and this time we would be perhaps wiser and take a good care of not
slipping away again. Unless the mankind doesn’t achieve its self-destruction
on its own beforehand, of course …
Something has just crossed my mind
When night is young and still the last echo of sunshine is
dying away in the dark - a flock of runaway asters scattered over the velvet
navy vault is herded under their pale shepherd's sharp eye,
Walking along the streets of Prague I hold my breath over all that beauty above
my head, unseen to passers-by whose eyes would never meet the sky,
And I am musing over the real and true richness and see that it’s not hidden
out in big wheels, brownstone and bank accounts.
It’s simply the power to feel World’s beauty that makes me the richest
person beneath the sky as well as the happiest one under the Sun.
People marveled by simple beauty get happiness for reward - not those who chase
for cash, taking happiness for thing you can bargain for, to buy.
Just look at the real splendor and the true glory – they'll never be for sale,
you'll never find them at retail.
