Omniscience etc.

 

In some traditions, they use big words such as omniscience, omnipresence and even omnipotence.

When I use those words as pointers, I find that each of those are already happening here, and it’s very simple and ordinary.

Omnipresence is the property of being present everywhere.

Whatever happens – sounds, sights, sensations, smell, taste, thought – already happens within and as awareness. Awareness is already present everywhere in this field of experience. Attention may go different places, including lost in thought, and that too happens within and as awareness.

Omniscience is the capacity to know everything infinitely.

Whatever happens – sounds, sights, sensations, smell, taste, thought – happens within and as awareness, and is known by awareness. It is known as awareness and as the appearance it takes. Again, attention may go different places, including lost in thought, and yet this knowing still happens.

Omnipotence (from Latin: Omni Potens: “all power”) is unlimited power.

Whatever happens happens. That’s it. With some layers of thought, I can see that this can be interpreted as life being all powerful in making what happens happen. Although it seems much simpler – what happens just happen.

As so often, when we make this into elaborate ideologies, it’s just an elaboration of a simple projection of what’s already here. It’s very simple and ordinary.

Note: One of the way this is elaborated is to assume that there is – for instance – a knowing of what’s outside of the ordinary sense field of this human being. That may happen at times, but again, it can be much simpler. No need to make it anything else than what’s here in ordinary experience. Also, when/if there is such as knowing, that too happens within this sense field.

This field of awareness is already awareness. Awareness is already present everywhere in this field of experience. Attention may go different places, including lost in thought, and that too happens within and as awareness.
