If You Want to Bake a Cake From Scratch, You Must First Create the Universe

by robert cinque

The cake needs flour which comes from wheat which grows on the Earth and is watered by the rain and illuminated by the Sun which needs space and the universe to exist.

It takes the entire universe to bake a cake.

It takes the entire universe to bake a cake for the same reason it takes everything a woman is to give birth to a child. Every atom in her body, her entire mind and emotions, every cell is working together to bring new life into the world.

It’s a painful and bloody affair for her, a blood and guts ordeal. She screams and struggles and after the infant Big Bang has arrived and the dust has settled, a new and magnificent- beyond- belief- creation has entered the world.

The reason this is so profoundly significant is because its proof positive that Love/Happiness/Intelligence is the Nature of Reality. I am certain this is true. There is no other explanation for the Birth of a Child, or for anything at all.

Existence itself is the bone crushing, ego shattering Earthquake/Volcano:  the Radiant Presence of Living Love/Truth.  I don’t say Love AND Truth because they are not two things.

Love is not merely sentiment or emotion, although Love includes that. Love and Intelligence is the Structure and Nature of Reality. This may sound like a mystical or religious presumption but it is not.

It is actually a scientific discovery that can be tested and verified, just like gravity.

The Nature of Reality is Present in a Singular Field of Intelligent Light and Love.

The Scientific Materialists scoff at this and mock it as superstitious nonsense, even while eating a piece of cake their Universal Mother made for them, out of Love.

At best, they might concede that Love is a tiny fraction of the human condition, but its all random and by chance, just a bunch of neurons firing and atoms bouncing around in a box.

However, the simple example of baking a cake completely destroys the Materialist presumption because it demonstrates how Life is Singular and not divided. To the Materialist, there is ONLY division, chaos and existential angst, all necessary and inevitable consequences of a failed cosmology.

Scientific Materialists are like Religious Fundamentalists, only worse.

My intention is to demonstrate in real time and in our real world experience, that the Certainty of and Intimacy with Awareness is the Source and Fountain of Existence Itself:  Conscious Living Light, the Radiant Field of Brilliance Alive as all things, the Kingdom of Heaven.   

This is not a poetic or mystical or even religious statement. It is the Confession of Awareness itself.

This is not personal. It doesn’t come from me. I didn’t invent it as a theory or adopt it as a belief.

The Nuclear Blast of the Presence of Infinite Awareness strips all the flesh from the bones and all concrete from the rebar in the walls of the prisons we built for ourselves.  Then, it melts the rebar and what you thought was you lays smoldering in a heap on the Ground.

In other words, only Awareness exists and only Awareness wakes up to and as Itself. Individuals do not “wake up”. No individual is “enlightened”. Only Light is Enlightened. What is left of the individual is anybody’s guess.

Said another way: You can’t wake up because you’re not asleep. God  realization is Noticing that the chains I thought were binding me are an illusion, a projection of egoic presumption and suffering.

2 Jokes:

Fred is pounding himself over the head with a hammer. His wife asks Why are you doing this?

“Because it feels so good when I stop!”.

A man stumbles out of the bar and is walking down the street crying, one foot on the sidewalk, one in the gutter. A woman comes up to him and asks, Why are you crying? And Why are you walking with one foot in the gutter? The man looks down and says, “Is that what I was doing? I thought I was crippled! Thank you!!”

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

    its understandable that people use the analogy of awakening , as so many are living either
    a dreamlike life of ignorance, or a nightmarish life in denial . a large number are experiencing
    a very seismic paradigm shift since 2020 began . I feel like I’ve had a comparatively gentle , slow motion
    crumbling of layers , shedding skins , dropping masks and lifting of veils , over the course of 30 years .
    a stripping away of all the previous 34 years of programming , conditioning , ego embellishment
    and armour , to reveal what ?…an old fart with a god complex ? maybe… a wise bodhisattva ? hmm…
    tin foil hatter ? cosmic comedian ? devils advocate ? hippy stoner ? half baked cake ? probably…
    but whats left is full of Love , humour and yearning for nothing but absolute truth…..

    • No labels are adequate because we exist prior to labels, but keep trying, very amusing.

    flawed diamond will suffice …..
