Hide and Seek

When we were children, we covered our eyes and counted to 10 while our playmate hid. Then, we looked for her and squealed with delight when we found her.

In the same way, the infinite Intelligence of Life covers its’ eyes and waits for itself to hide. Then, it goes looking for itself.

Where does the infinite Intelligence hide? In every apparently separate and distinct organism, in every kind of appearance and experience.

When it covers its’ eyes and counts to 10, it takes billions of years for it to hide in biological evolution. When humans appeared, its hands came off its’ eyes and the search for the playmate was on.

The universe is like a child in a sandbox, building castles, knocking them down


In this Game model of Existence, the Universe and Cosmic Nature are seen as playful expressions of Living Awareness. If Consciousness is infinite then it can assume any shape and form without ceasing to be itself in the same way a movie screen never ceases to be itself no matter how many images are projected onto it.  Consciousness circulates between the cycles of birth and death without ever ceasing to be Consciousness in the same way that water can exist in 3 states, solid, liquid and gas and always remain H2O.

The 3 states of Consciousness are waking, sleeping and dreaming. Each state is wildly different from the other 2, yet its always  Consciousness. And, like ice is a state of water, matter is a state of consciousness and does not exist outside of Consciousness.

As an apparent individual, I am the part of God that is Hiding. As infinite Consciousness, I am the part of God that is Seeking.

The reason the Game model is so valuable is because it points to what we actually observe. It obsoletes both the Scientific Materialist model and the Religious model  by recognizing that Love, Beauty and Happiness are at the very Core of Life.

The Materialist and Religious models have failed humanity and imprisoned us on an island of flesh and bone, soon to be annihilated by death.

But, do we cease to exist when the body dies? The Materialist says Yes, because consciousness comes from the brain. The Religionist says No, we go to heaven or hell or we re-incarnate.

it’s you

The Game model says No, we don’t cease to exist when the body dies because we are not the body, we are the Awareness OF the body. The Game model is built on the recognition that awareness, consciousness is our first experience. We are aware and we are aware that we are aware. The Game model says we are not an awareness inside a mind inside a body. Instead, the body and mind are inside awareness and are expressions of its’ states. Eternal Consciousness modulates itself into time and space which are refractions of itself when viewed through the mind and body. I see the mind and body as prisms that refract the Light into time and space. This enables play and exploration and creation. It enables passion, adventure and manifestation.

Therefore, play well. See that you are God hiding as the ego. Consider that Consciousness is the Screen upon which the image of time and space are projected. The Screen and the Image  are seamless. When the movie is playing, we don’t notice the screen but without it, no movie would be possible.

The Screen takes the shape of the Image without ceasing to be itself. The water takes the shape of the vase without ceasing to be water. God takes the form of the ego without ceasing to be God.

When humanity sees that we are not separate beings but that we all share One Being, everything will change. And Hide and Seek will be played as a joyful and happy Game.

Robert Cinque

In addition to writing essays like these, Robert Cinque also builds beautiful, affordable and comfortable yurts for homeowners and businesses in the fabulous Skagit County. Throughout the past three decades, his work has included building and installing wood art at local landmarks like the Cascadian Farm Organic Fruitstand in Rockport (WA), the Birdsview Brewery at the foot at “the American Alps” in the Pacific Northwest’s Skagit Valley, and many others. He has worked with visionary architect and organic designer Sunray Kelley for over 20 years on many beautiful projects. Together, they formed Radiant Homes and are actively engaged in the development of the Living Home, the Bioshelter, the no-mortgage, no-permit, food and energy producing home. Their work has been featured on National Geographic, MTV, Better Homes and Gardens, and represents the Greening of Architecture, a movement they consider to be the most important development since the Industrial Revolution. He says: These essays are about “dungeons of mind, the root of suffering, true sanctuary, and the glorious imperative to live intimately with That Which Is Alive As All Things. They are painful, bloody and hard-hitting (the “truth will set you free, but it will piss you off first”). They are designed to destroy what’s false and cultivate what’s real. They are not merely my opinions or philosophy; they are field reports from the underground where the Lie was deconstructed. They are wrecking balls, cosmic insults to vanity and arrogance, bulldozers and firebombs that burn out the tangled underbrush. They are intended to water the Seeds of Life buried under mountains and centuries of false beliefs, inherited “culture” and ego cults, so-called “religions”, including scientism, masquerading as truth. Idols are routinely lampooned and sacred cows are turned into hamburger as quickly as possible. I really don’t mean to offend any one personally. I’m not after them. I’m after the beliefs that are harming them: the Big Lie, the belief in separation from Love and Truth that strangles the heart and creates terrible, unbearable suffering. I love to help create Sanctuary and Shelter. I am a green builder and enjoy showing others how to build a no-mortgage, no-permit bio-shelters that also provide food and energy. cell 360-393-5663
