Chapter One

In the Beginning

In the beginning, there was light. The immeasurable, unsurpassed cosmos was a blank fabric of space-time ready to be woven full of meaning. Waiting for you. The history of this universe is woven as easily as silk from moment to moment as you live it. And when we trace the thread, back to the beginning we find out what we really are is immeasurable is unsurpassed.

In the beginning, there was light. It is the beginning to the story of our universe that nearly everyone has heard. Yet mankind moves through life on Planet Earth year by year, and still the same inevitable questions arise.

Who made the light?

Was it God?

Was it the byproduct of an ancient cosmic event within the universe science has been seeking for years?

Why was there light?

For some, the pursuit for answers to these questions is a lifelong devotion. Perhaps this is the reason you are reading this book today. Whatever the reason behind you ultimately finding yourself opening your experience to the pages you are about to read, it is a promise that the answers you are looking for are already yours. The path you are looking for is a path you are already on—and it will only get better from here. The answers were already yours to begin with. It is not that I seek to answer these questions from some point of higher perspective that is any more expansive than your own; it is that I seek to refresh and reconnect you with your own knowing. And so I ask you to be willing to follow me on a journey of rediscovery of the universe, of God, and of yourself.

Much farther down the road, after this first step within the universe we call "light," you were born.

For quite some time after the moment of your birth, you had full memory of everything that is to follow in this book. That is why upon your birth, you knew and felt your worth as separate from externals. You had no talent, no ability to operate physically within the world, no wealth, and no language. You had no great achievements by society's standards—yet you had infinite worth that you felt very deeply because you simply ... were. Everyone around you saw this worth. But they called this your potential—in other words, all the unrealized things you would do, become, and have at a later date. They called this potential—what you would do, become, and have—because they, as adults, had long since forgotten what you still remembered then. What you remembered is this— you cannot ever lose worth or gain worth, because your worth is separate from externals. It is even separate from this life. You were born complete, but not yet completed. You knew then that worth is in the potential energy that you are and that this universe is. Within potential energy already exists every yet-unrealized attribute that the adults in your life confused with worth. Worth in fact exists if you do nothing other than breathe and think for the whole of your life. And this potential energy exists before you made the decision to participate in this physical reality you now lead. It exists as you draw your first breath and as you draw your last breath. It exists after you make the decision to no longer participate in this physical life you now lead.

You knew then what your purpose was. It is the same for all of us—living and non-living—and that is to be exactly where you are. To do exactly what you are doing in this moment. You knew that growth was inevitable because of this. You knew that you did not become physical so you could find something to put forth effort toward. You came into this physical place to conceive ideas and for those ideas to manifest around you as you let go and allowed them to. You knew then that you did not intend to come here in order to spin in the direction of everything you didn't like about this world and push against it in attempt to change the world or rid reality of it. You knew your intention to live in the physical was an intention to aid in the full-circle evolution of this universe into a broader and more unified oneness than the oneness that is the underlying eternal truth of this universe. You knew then that this process we are in is the process of one becoming more one, consciousness becoming conscious of itself, God knowing itself, and the separated concept of the self becoming no separate self again through the eventual wanting of it. You knew that this life would be the very platform of not only your evolution, but also the evolution of all that is. You knew you did not have to try to do this; it was no sort of quest. You knew then that the way you would do this is to find one single thing in your life, and that is bliss.

The beginning of this journey of rediscovery must start with a limited snapshot of our world today—a snapshot of the current collective, human, physical reality we have created.

Today, while it is true that the occasional individual finds his or her way to his or her inner truth (the truth of the higher self) and then has full access to bliss, freedom, and awareness, the majority of human society has forgotten that these things are the point of life. Indeed, human society at large has even convinced itself that these things are not based in reality and are therefore instead simply wishful, "Pollyanna" thinking. More importantly, the majority of human society has forgotten that the source of all things is not ever found in events or people outside one's self. It is found within. You may ask, then, what is becoming of this loss of memory of how the universe we live in really operates? The answer is powerlessness, which you can see every day in the form of war, illness, and fear. Fear sells, illness abounds, and powerlessness finds us as humans in a struggle against everything and everyone—which only brings that everything and everyone we do not want even closer.

In forgetting what it is we came here to do and how one creates reality with focus, human society at large has accepted, individual by individual, a nightmare virus, which is the idea that the individual has no control, freedom, or power. This trend began centuries ago—as soon as men saw spirituality as a means to control others. The birth of organized religion brought the attention away from one's own personal spiritual essence and focused it on practices of worship, obedience, and doctrine. The history of religion tells you a lot about the history of men and precious little about God. In fact, much of the historical side of religion is a horrific one, full of corruption, misinterpretation, conspiracy, murder, and tyranny. Almost all of the world's conflicts have been caused by those who were supposed to be in the service of God. Writings pertaining to ancient human culture, which have no relevance today (some of which were not even meant to be taken literally), were construed to be the eternal word of God. The history of religion exposes people in the human quest for power realizing for themselves that if another man was allowed to realize his own inherent divinity and power, no one could control him. And so they sought to suppress it, warn against it as abomination, and kill those who disagreed all in the name of God. To many, the idea of spirituality has been lost amidst the rubble of organized religion. This is to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

It is true that the inherent flaws of religion have caused many to turn their backs on spirituality entirely. It is conversely true that for many, religion has been their anchor and even their hope. For some, religion has been a much-enjoyed system of safety that caused them not only to look for the divine in the first place, but also that caused them to not ever wish to look beyond their specific religion. Whichever side of the coin you stand on, the truth is that God is present within every religion in many different forms. God is also present in the absence of religion. God is not about whom or what is right or wrong. God is not about our human-imposed details. God is the essence of the eternal, loving omnipresence in all life. God is an essence that is obscured by human rules, doctrine, penance, and righteousness. It is the essence that is always present within every single person, regardless of his or her secular beliefs, or what he or she has done or become in this life.

Religion at its best may be able to make a practice of God. But spirituality is God. It is the thread of love and human divinity that threads similarity through every religion and unites them. And from the vantage point of God, the nightmare that makes up much of our religious past is not the big picture. For example, from the perspective of God, even this nightmare many are living currently is pulling them closer and closer to its very opposite. We are slowly pulling ourselves toward love, joy, awareness, and the truth that all living and non-living parts of this universe, are intertwined. It is how it was always intended to be.

The reality we all live in comes from within. There is no external reality that we participate in to force it into being what we want and force it to be rid of what we don't want. This world is not a space in which we come in order to prove ourselves worthy of something higher. To God, the world we have created is full of beauty. There is not only more beauty than there is ugliness (and all that is restricting you from that view is focus), but also it is the ugliness that is giving rise to this beauty in the first place. To God worth and bliss are collectively like an inner light that you cannot lose and cannot gain, and all the things you think, do, have, and become are built in this life—like a stained glass window in front of that light that amplifies the beauty of that light, or like cobwebs in front of a window that obscure that light. It is a promise that by the end of this book, you will feel the stirrings of this memory deep within you—and as a result, you will know forever after that it is you who holds the power to decide to get back onto the path you intended. This path is the path of welcoming and becoming your own bliss.

We speak of beginning because it is a concept that one cannot escape when operating in a three-dimensional reality. We are linear thinkers, because this is the dimension in which our physical lives are lived. This means that we are perpetually in search of the beginning of our universe as we know it. This presents a problem when trying to know the truth of the universe at large, because there is no such thing as a true beginning within something that is eternal. Eternal means extending in both the direction of the future and the past, so it is more of a circular concept than it is a linear one. The closer you get to understanding the properties of the most minuscule components of the physical universe that make up all that is physical—such as atoms, neutrons, electrons, quarks, and leptons—the more apparent the eternality (non-beginning) of the universe becomes. This does not deter us from still searching for a beginning, such as the Big Bang. In doing so, we are missing the big picture as well as the fact that the big picture cannot be complete without the component of God. It is impossible for something to be created (and therefore appear at random, incidentally) from nothing.

All things—including our universe—are the result of what has been previous to those very things. This universe always has been and always will be, regardless of whether it is manifested in a three-dimensional capacity or not. It is eternal and therefore undergoes no beginning or end, but rather profound cycles. The state of the universe we are living in is a continuation of the state of the universe that was before it. To science, the universe appears to be expanding. This is purely because as multi-dimensional energy increases and changes, it appears in the three-dimensional reality to disestablish the position of physical things; therefore, as the space between those newly moved things is measured and called distance, the conclusion is drawn that the universe is expanding in size, when this is not the case at all. The universe is not expanding in size; it is expanding in energy, and as such, new dimensions are coming to be. As these new dimensions are coming to be within this universe (which are, at this point, completely invisible to three-dimensional perception as well as measuring devices), it appears to us as if there is a new kind of energy that is increasing called dark matter.

When a new collective evolution within the universe happens, the universe must become greater to compensate for that new idea. To do so, instead of increasing in size, it undergoes a sort of division—like the way the cells of your body divide. However, when the universe divides, it divides in terms of dimensions. When a dimensional division occurs, quite often in the third dimensional reality, it causes the appearance of what we may call an implosion or explosion. And everything about the reality of that dimension changes in its nature, properties, and laws. This physical effect caused by expanding dimensions that we experience in the third dimension as an explosion is the reason for the birth of the Big Bang theory. It is, however, just a snapshot in a perpetual universal evolution. Each new dimension has a higher energetic vibration than the last. Within each separate galaxy of this universe, you will find much evidence of the multiple dimensions inherent in our universe, such as black holes. These black holes not only pull energy, as is popularly thought, but they also emit it. They are interdimensional portals. They do not abide by the same properties as objects in the third dimension because of their interdimensional nature. This is why they distort space-time, among other things. They cannot be scientifically understood by us in the current format that we use, because they are of an entirely different energetic vibration than what we can access from the energetic vibration of this third dimensional reality. The unitarity of black holes, for example, is also the result of the fact that they are interdimensional in nature. Dark matter and black holes are not negative space; they are simply the experience of interdimensionality within the universe.

To understand the nature of this universe, however, we must go back even further—past what science has called the Big Bang of our current physical reality and past the beginning of all dimensions. Though eternality is not linear, for the sake of communication, we can call this the beginning of the beginning. At this point, all was one. This concept of oneness is a concept that from our physical brain's point of view, we cannot conceive of as more than a deep knowing, perhaps in the form of a deep feeling. This oneness existed in a state of potential energy. It was everything and it's opposite. This oneness had a unifying consciousness. To even put a name on that which is unquantifiable, eternal, and limitless is to immediately make this unified consciousness an it and therefore lose the true nature of it. However, for the sake of communicating these things to you hereafter and as a stepping stone to your own personal knowledge of this consciousness, you should know that that this consciousness has gone by many names in human society—some of which you may be familiar with: the Great Spirit, Adi Purush, energy, Numen, Almighty, the immense ultimate, the omniscient, the unified field, Allah, the higher self, or God. I will refer to this oneness, however, as Source, as it is a neutral word that captures at least a bit of the essence of this unified consciousness throughout this book. Before you are born into this physical experience, you exist in and as the space of being of Source. Though it can be said that you have a certain sense of self, it is not the kind of sense of self that imbues a differentiation or separation from anything else in your objective awareness. You exist in essence as what can be called your higher self. Your higher self is the eternal, incorporeal, omnipotent, consciousness which is your real self. It is the being that you go forth from and withdraw back to from life to life. It is the summation of all that you have ever been and all that you are. It is often called a higher self because the frequency of the energetic vibration of Source and therefore your higher self could be interpreted as a much higher frequency than that of physical structure. Your connection to your higher self is unbreakable. It is in fact the focus of your higher self into the idea of you that created you in the first place. Your higher self is not a unit of energy so much as it is a smaller current within the larger current of source.

    BUY THIS BOOK!

    There is one thing to say about this book and that is... BUY THIS BOOK!
    It's incredible. The subject matter may be difficult to comprehend for some readers. This is no grade level book. But The Sculptor in the Sky is a book to define the new age. The author is one of those rare individuals meant to lead us into the realm of new thought and a new world.
    I truly believe that a Christian, a Buddhist and a Hindu and a Muslim could ALL read this book and ALL love it. This is her point in the book, that it is time that we all unite as one. This book has new angles on how a person can achieve happiness that I've never thought of before. I started applying some of the things she suggests doing in chapter 14 and I can actually say that they have started to change the way I live my life and the way my life is unfolding around me.
    All of these changes I have experienced as a result of reading this book are positive. I have given in to three of my relatives and they are all in love with it too.
    so...
    BUY THE BOOK ALREADY!

    This is an Amazing Book!

    I got this book on a whim when I tripped across the author's web site. I was in a bad space in life and it kind of just called to me.
    After the first page, I was riveted. After the first chapter I was put in a mental space so far above where I usually live my life, I felt disoriented. I wound up grabbing to the rest of the chapters like a lifeline as this book dismantled my reality and then put it back together again... Only better.
    By the end of the book, I felt invincible. I think it is one of the most inspirational books I've ever read.
    When I looked into the author's biography after reading the book, I was dumbfounded. The fact that someone could come through an experience like she went through, only to forgive her past and express so much love to humanity makes me think there is hope for myself and hope for the world.
    I recommend this book for absolutely anyone!
    It does not matter who you are there is something in this book for you!
    I see reality differently after reading this book.
    I love it!

    A must read for people with alternative lifestyles.

    I AM A GAY MAN FROM A VERY CONSERVATIVE TOWN. I BOUGHT THIS BOOK BECAUSE I SAW A FLIER FOR IT HANGING IN A LOCAL GAY ALLIANCE BUILDING. AT FIRST I DIDN'T KNOW IF A "NEW AGE" BOOK WAS FOR ME. I AM NOT A SPIRITUAL PERSON. I HAVE HATED RELIGION ALL OF MY LIFE. I THOUGHT THE INFORMATION IN THE BOOK WAS INTERESTING. BUT THEN I GOT TO THE CHAPTER ABOUT WORTH. TO KEEP A LONG STORY SHORT, I WAS IN TEARS THE ENTIRE TIME I WAS READING THAT CHAPTER. IT WAS MY LIFE! BY THE END OF READING THE BOOK I MANAGED (FOR THE FIRST TIME IN PROBABLY 14 YEARS) TO NOT FEEL WORTHLESS AND LIKE I AM DISGUSTING FOR THE FACT THAT I AM GAY. I WAS ABLE TO FEEL THAT I HAD VALUE AND THERE WAS HOPE FOR ME TO BE HAPPY IN LIFE AND EVEN FIND THE PERFECT PARTNER. THIS BOOK IS ONE I THINK EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER BEEN AN OUTCAST OR A MINORITY SHOULD READ. I HAVE SO MUCH GRATITUDE TO THE AUTHOR TEAL SCOTT FOR WRITING THIS BOOK.

    This book is incredible!

    I just finished reading "The sculptor in the Sky" yesterday.
    I'm speechless. For most of my life, I had thought that spirituality was "hooey" and "quackery". After reading this, my mind is completely changed. Teal is an enlightened being. While I was reading it, I kept getting chills interchangeably with this feeling intense peaceful feeling of "I am not alone". I am hoping to meet this author in person one day. I can't really explain what this book was about, it can't be summed up. It's like so much truth crammed into a book, that you can hardly come up for air. I'm going to have to read it at least 5 more times to understand it all. I'm so excited. I can't wait for this author's next book. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

    This book has all the makings of a best seller!

    The Sculptor In The Sky is full of so much information crammed into one smaller sized book, that you will get new meaning out of each time you read it.
    I thought it was thought provoking, original, daring, controversial and inspiring. All the makings of a best seller.
    The poetry at the beginning of each chapter was incredible. Also, the forward for the book which is written by the author made me cry!
    Simply put this is an epic book that you should definitely find time to read.

    I highly recommend this book.

    I thought I was going to log on and be able to write a very original sounding review, it seems I've been beat to it and it also seems that everyone else feels the same way about this book that I do.
    Alas, I still must say that The Sculptor In The Sky is a life changer.
    This author is a force to be reckoned with. This book packs a hard punch. It is a very odd book because it sort of hit me where it hurt, only to leave me on the floor feeling...wonderful about myself. This is a dichotomy I'm still a bit confused about. In my opinion, besides knowing way too much than a person ought to know about the world, Teal Scott is an incredible writer. I think it would be hard to explain to someone else what exactly this book is about. But somehow it works. Part self help, part spiritually educational, part workbook, part prophecy, part epic overview. Teal Scott teaches that everything essentially IS god and so I guess it fits that everything this book is about relates to god, which is what the title suggests the book is all about. Long story short, I highly recommend this book. You'll never be able to think the same way again after you read it. I can't!

    sadly this is a book made for weak minds. It is yet another New age book of lies to further mislead people from any semblance of truth

    Great

    I only read the sample but even the foreword...oh this author is amazing. To have gone through hell and then come out with a forgiving, compassionate heart that loves everyone...an amazing person whom I will not soon forget.

    Even A Scientist Approves!

    The Sculptor In The Sky looks like a book which would wet the appetite. It is a small book, so it appears as if it were a light read. But the information contained within is not only meaty, but also so complex that it is not an appetizer of a book but almost like a 16 course meal. Each chapter is it's own course. This book is a transformational book. It will change the way you think about reality and since I have read it, I have been unable to second guess the tiny, seemingly "insignificant" thoughts which I think every day.
    Being a scientist at heart and of profession, I thought I would be turned off by an overtly spiritual book. Instead I am impressed. The author writes like someone with a college doctorate degree. I highly suggest this book, even for the least spiritual at heart.

    Best Book I've Ever Read!

    This book should be a bible! It's incredible. I've got to collect myself right now to even write about it. I was swinging between crying and being overwhelmed with peaceful joy while I was reading it. This book is sent from the universe it's self through the author. But then again, I'm sure the author herself was sent from the universe too.
    I was so depressed when My friend gave me this book and now, I feel like I could walk on water. Do I need to say anything more?
    It's a masterpiece! I think that anyone would have to be crazy to read this book and not love this book. And as a side note, the Author is a real poetess. The poems at the beginning of every chapter are simply divine. I liked it so much, I bought a copy for every one of my family members.

    My suggestion is to try it out! You wont be disappointed!

    I highly recommend this book to all readers, especially readers interested in spirituality and metaphysics.

    This book is original, risky, profound, inspirational and...wonderful.
    When I started to read this book, I felt my breathing slow and the pain in my body diminishing. Slowly, as I read this book I found that I was becoming more centered. As weird as it sounds, whenever I encounter something that will have profound impact on my life, I experience chills all up and down my spine. I got these familiar chills continually while reading this book. I do not yet know how my life has changed by reading this book. But I trust that it has. To all those within the spiritual community, this will be a timeless classic I think.
    This book is one which I highly recommend to all readers, especially those who are interested in things of a spiritual and metaphysical nature.
