The Purpose of Mysteries was created by SubsidingInsanity
The physical universe is a never ending quagmire of mysteries. We solve one mystery and another takes its place. We solve one problem and another arises. We are constantly striving to solve these problems and mysteries that we perceive in our external world, and most ignore the mystery within. Does this strike you as strange? It almost seems as though this place we call the physical universe is specifically designed to keep us so distracted by all the problems and mysteries that we never wake up. Agree? disagree?

Well, I don't think it is designed for one thing or the other - it is just complicated, so that we must truly understand it, in order to truly understand it :)

One of the most important things that I think, is that belief creates reality, and molds our minds into a sandbox/testbed for ideas. If you hold onto the idea, that you will never be enlightened, than it will be true, but if you hold onto the idea that you are becoming enlightened, than it will be true.

We must always be mindful of our thoughts.

I would take your "belief creates reality" idea to the next level. How about our thoughts make what we perceive? If this holds true than the question is why did we specifically design this place to deny God? Think about it. Does not everything that is physical deny God? Everything is separate and where ever we look God is nowhere to be found. How can we be one with God if we are these very vulnerable fleshy bodies?

This is a perfect example of thoughts create what we perceive.

Your thought is "Physical things are separate from god." So you see the physical objects existing in this one dimention, and god existings in and external dimention, which causes the perception of seperation.

But I think of God as everything , if your thought is " Everything is God" , then you see divinity and love in everything. In the plants, in the trees, in the water bottle, in the blanket, in your shoes, in you car, in your office, in your self, and in your body. So in that way, your thought creates what you perceive.

So also in that sense (thought creating what you perceive), the mysteries are also of your own creation, if you set your thoughts to " I am in the process of understanding" , then that will also be true :)

Do you see God as the stuff you flush down the toilet? Do you scrape God off your shoe?

What you speak of is the nature of causality. You may learn much from studying it as it unfolds before you in your daily experiences. Your words have been filtered however, by the nature of your being. Sort of like xcera has said. Allow me to demonstrate.

I understand the concept of one mystery solved and another taking it's place. However the way you have expressed this concept will not speak to those who would hear it. I recommend seeing this statement instead as: The nature of formed information is in pattern recognition, thus the more information we gather, the more pattern appears and thus the more information we need. Example: To find out why (oh lets say) Whales are dying, we need first look at the information we have on Whales, from that we look for changes in Whale pattern (if the whales were fine ten years ago, what's changed?). When and if we finally arrive at the answer to why Whales are dying, we now have a small world of implication, solution, and advancement to explore. Information does not dead end, and you my friend, are information.

So in short. I disagree with the notion that this Universe we perceive has innate intention. It is a structured means to a beginning at all space/time. What the meaning of such reality is can only be determined by what you both seem to understand as "God." This is true no matter who you are. If you believe you are God, you determine meaning, for that which is determined is you can only be you. If you believe in a God that is separate from you, it determines (ultimate) meaning. If you do not believe in God, then you are the only entity that exists to determine meaning. This all isn't to say you can't have your meaning defined for you but we do really need to step out of the practice of that here on this planet for we can not handle the social responsibility to it's connotations. I.E. We can not choose for others when we never chose for ourselves.

Now i'm sorry if i've lost you. Thank you for your question.
