Notes

Sanatana Dharma

In the Taittirya Upanishad, the distinction between non-being and being.[2]

In the beginning was the golden womb (Hiranyagarbha),

The seed of elemental existence,

The only Lord of all that was born,

He upheld the heaven and earth together,

To what God other than him should we dedicate our life?

ATHARVA VEDA 4.2.7

Sufism

In Sufism, the various states of consciousness are all collapsed into a single attribute of "meaning" <Ref>Chittick, William C., and Rumi. The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi. Rumi SUNY Series in Islam. New York: SUNY Press, 1983.</ref> which is distinguished from "form," which is the physical manifestation that eventually results from the [[Emanation of Consciousness]]

"People look at secondary causes and think that they are the origin of everything that happens. But it has been revealed to the saints that secondary causes are no more than a veil. (F 68/80)"[3]

"Light is the First Cause, and every secondary cause is its shadow. (D 525) "[4]

"Thou art the Sun, and all things follow Thee like shadows, sometimes to the left, sometimes to the right. (D 21966)" [5]
