Then Arjun saw in God the whole universe.
Then Arjun, full of wonder,
with his hairs standing on end’
bowed down to the Lord and pressing his hands in prayer said:
I see all the gods and thousands of beings in
—The Gita, Chapter 11, verses 14, 15
Consider the idea of the whole universe, of everything imaginable, contained within the being of its Creator. This vision represents the vastness of all existence that lives in the confines of our imagination, reason, and belief. This is a remarkable perspective.
See Chapter 11 of The Gita, A New Translation of Hindu Sacred Scripture, by Irina Gajjar.
We human beings have always wondered about whether the chicken preceded the egg or vice versa. More seriously we wonder about what came before the big bang. But some scientists think the universe did not come from anything but merely appeared where it had not been apparent before.
If this is the case, than the whole universe is an illusion [Maya] rather than a reality as stated in Chapter 7, (verses 12 and 13) of the Bhagavad Gita. This fits with God’s description of Himself as the only reality.
But we cannot confuse the universe or even God, who would be the Truth that exists transcending the appearance and disappearance of the universe with occurrences within the universe of dimensions. Those occurrences are manifestations of karma.
Organized chaos might be order or a party. It might be the universe or multiverse. It might be evolution or devolution. It probably exists though this expression or notion, like that of a giant shrimp is oxymoronic.
Managing organized chaos requires multi-tasking. It requires the ability of an artist who views everything as a canvas. It starts out as a mess and a blur and ends up as a beautiful painting.
For those of us who think in more linear manner, functioning in the throes of organized chaos is difficult if not impossible.
