My friend, creation,operation & destruction of the universe is attributed to an ultimate source which is the seed of all consciousness. Its like a prism in a room which on rotating projects the light on every wall. We & all conscious elements r those projections of that source prism. The universe becomes aware through us & this explains our infinite possibilities. The only condition to achieve that state of awareness is to go beyond ur senses which gives illusions primarily.The reality is beyond time,space & causation but once u transcend them u become one with the cause of consciousness .....friend!
There are a number of theories, 1. The Creationist Account, 2. The Big Bang Theory, 3. The Bouncing Universe Claim, 4. The Intelligent Design Claim, 5. The Bubble Theory. Of course there is another one which says that the universe was created through an existing consciousness expanding itself which I have taken on as being more correct but of course it might not be right either.
I feel a 'Conscious Need' created this Universe. As the Creator realized the need, He learned about the creation and created this Universe. We are so dependent upon each other; if you think, you will find out.
We are all very much connected indeed, this new age spiritualism is teaching people personal will but there is nothing personal about our existence as we all have the same will plus it sounds awfully self-centred.
