Hi Menas, Deepak,
I understand that the universe is nothing but our thoughts (our awareness). But, what are thoughts?
I believe thoughts are basically potential (potential of thought), that keep bubbling in and out of existence.
And how did the universe begin?
I believe the universe began when a potential thought bubbled into existence.
But who caused the potential thought bubble into existence. Consciousness is required for a potential thought to bubble into existence.
So, consciousness was there, even when thoughts were in potential.
And that consciousness caused the potential thought bubble into existence. We may term that consciousness as God.
Am I correct?
