Form and Formlessness Interpenetrate
Consciousness is the intelligence, the organizing principle behind the arising of form. Consciousness has been preparing forms for millions of years so that it can express itself through them in the manifested.
Although the unmanifested realm of pure consciousness could be considered another dimension, it is not separate from this dimension of form.
Form and formlessness interpenetrate. The unmanifested flows into this dimension as awareness, inner space, Presence.
How does it do that? Through the human form that becomes conscious and thus fulfills its destiny. The human form was created for this higher purpose, and millions of other forms prepared the ground for it.
