I would like to share a little writing which demonstrates correspondences for Eastern terms and concepts with more elaborately explained concepts/design. This was inspired by a description of how the Universe came/comes into existence by John Lily, and I thought of the correspondences. There is more you could do, with various spiritual systems, but here is what I have for now.

Before Beginning(of Time/Space): Sunyata(emptiness/void)
From void Came Brahma(Growing/Choosing-God)
Then Self(Atman) was realized; Consciousness-Without-Object
Then the first notion of an Object arose; Unity(of time/space), 1
Then polarity arose, which would always equal out to 0, all the way up to infinity.

That which becomes all experiences: Brahma
That which is the experience itself: Vishnu
Spontaneous creation & destruction of every reality/moment from Void: Shiva
Sensual-Body: Soma

Welcome to Lila, the play of reality that Hindus speaks of. One should not confuse ‘external’ perceptions as being necessarily calls to action for your body or mind. These are simply ‘meaningless’ projections of the energies existing within your consciousness, being projected as external perceptions so as to evoke a response from you. This is Lila, the play. Learn to see this play as being literally playful. It is playful because your highest consciousness knows the totality of signals/symbols you have accumulated over your existence, and is able to see trends in the way that you react to certain things. The Universe exists so that meaning may be given to it, and your highest consciousness facilitates the Universe’s desire for meaning by giving you objects of perception it believes will draw a reaction out of you, through which meaning will be created. This is a playful game, because it projects these symbols and perceptions into your reality simply because it knows you are likely to react, and give meaning to it, despite the fact that it knows that these meanings do not truly exist.

Now the Universe is not particularly concerned with what meaning it is given. This is a very significant point. It simply wants meaning, and whatever meaning you tend towards will be facilitated through perceptual events. Your ability to give meaning to reality is the same as your ability to create reality. As I say, your reality is designed to provoke you into reacting and giving it meaning. If you are given to reacting to mundane and common things, reality will give you more mundane and common things of like nature. If the mundane and common nearly escapes your attention, reality will become more creative in its attempting to provoke a meaningful response out of you. It will appeal to higher, more creative, aspects of your consciousness. As you go higher, and maintain the focus of your consciousness on higher and more creative meanings, reality will reflect more of it. Keep your ‘head in the clouds,’ for the higher your interests, and the less concerned you are with the lower and mundane, the more reality will conform to those higher interests, in terms of the external perceptions it provides. Reality is designed to give you objects to project meaning onto. The better you become at creative projections, the more creative your reality will get, and the more control you can have in its design.
