The Greatest Work of Art Ever Created is...

This post was inspired by a New York Times article I read earlier today http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/16/science/16animate.html?src=ISMR_AP_LO_MST_FB However, for me the article was the adhesive that took several concepts I've been exposed to and bond them together into cohesive new experience of the world I live in and the faith that lives in me. What follows are words that attempt to convey what I've come to experience. Hope it resonates for some of you. For others, simply enjoy the visuals. Either way I'm happy to share.
The Greatest work of art ever simply IS. In this current and eternal moment of now presence is using intent to create, transform and recreate life. Often we look up at the sky and thanks to science and science fiction films like Star Wars, Star Trek and the like we are well aware of the infinite dimension of space. Though we cannot fully conceive of it we can now at least sense that it exists and we are part of it.
In recent days after re-reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle I've resumed a journey inward to experience the full awareness of simply BEING. I know, I know it all sounds like a lot of new world mumbo jumbo, but rock with me for a minute.
What we think of as solid (our bodies, rocks, trees, minerals, etc.) really are not. There's as much space within us as there is outside of us. All bodies are made of organs, which are made of tissue, which is made of cells, which is made of smaller cellular parts like nuclei, membranes, etc., which are made of smaller parts like mitochondria, RNA, DNA, etc., which are made of molecules, which are made of atoms, which are made of sub-atomic particles, which are made of even smaller fragments and it goes on and on and on. Each infinitely smaller object existing in the infinite space within. Each playing an important role in the forever ongoing process that is creation.
Of course all of this is impossible for us to imagine or comprehend with our minds (aka egos), yet due to scientific research and powerful tools we've been able to catch a small glimpse into a world we cannot see with the naked eye. We will never be able to see the entire Universe because it is infinite in both directions (outside of us and inside of us). But when one awakens and realizes that we are NOT our bodies and minds, BUT THEY ARE WONDERFUL TOOLS then you are free to feel the presence of the wonderful and infinitely amazing world with which we are one.
There are fish, water, plankton and billions of other life forms in the sea. The same is true of the land with billions of forms of life, minerals, rocks, etc. and the air with various birds, insects, gases, etc. most of which we cannot see, but KNOW exist. Ponder this: without life the earth could not exist as we know it and surely without the earth we could not exist in our known forms. Imagine the possibilities outward into the solar system, our galaxy, millions of other galaxies, nebulas, gas clouds, and the Universe itself. When you stop THINKING with you ego based mind and simply become aware of and experience what IS the truth becomes undeniably clear...
NOTHING OR NO ONE IS GREATER THAN THE OTHER
ESSENTIALLY THERE IS NO OTHER
ALL IS ONE...
connected FOREVER IN THIS ONE MOMENT THAT GOES ON WITHOUT BEGINNING OR END.
ALPHA AND OMEGA
BEGINNING AND THE END
I AM THAT I AM
There is nothing you need to do. Nothing you need to achieve. No one you need to acquire.
