Genesis: As Above So Below: The Roots And Branches
Everything in this world has its roots in the Upper World. When the Creator desired to make a Creature and fill it with Infinite pleasure it was immediately accomplished. So it is in the beginning that His will was done in complete perfection. However His creation which was a vessel for His Infinite Pleasure ( Light) was still in a fetal state with no perception of its Maker. Similar to a child in the womb of the mother does not yet have a conscious awareness of the parent who is creating, loving, nurturing, and sustaining him or her. Therefore the mother must eventually reject the child and force a separation from her child, so that the child can know his parent and understand his or her relationship towards the parent. It is from this forced separation that the child may come to know its parent and gradually ascend towards them. Gradually as a child develops they come to know and yes understand their parent.
Initially the Will to Bestow (Creator) and the will to receive (Creature) formed a perfect union, each accomplishing the others desire, and therefore bringing to perfection the thought of creation. However at this fetal level of development the creature was in such adhesion with the Creator that it is not considered yet a new or independent creature. Similar to the stage of development of a fetus within the womb of the mother is still attached by an umbilical cord and is like an organ of the mother.
Therefore in a benevolent act of creation the Creator created disparity within the creature so as to separate HIMSELF from his creature. Similar to the separation created through child-birth, the Creator casted out the creature (soul/vessel) from Himself. The only way to do this was to create within the creature disparity with HIMSELF. So within the will to receive he gave an intention to receive selfishly. Because Selfish Reception (Egoism) is a complete opposite in the spiritual world to Selfless Bestowal (Altruism), it was as if the creator and creature were as far from each other as EAST and WEST.
The only way back to the Father is if the soul performs a circumcision (removes) on its Egoistic intention and develops an intention to Bestow to the Creator. This intention must be asked for through prayer for the Creator to give one this nature. Obviously the efforts through study, prayer, restriction of selfishness are among some of the works done. This work attracts the Light of correction and salvation upon the person. We may also call this the Creators Light of Redemption and Salvation. Call it the Creator sending His Only Begotten(LIGHT) to the ones that pray for correction. This is your own very special relationship and call the Upper One what you feel you need to call the ONE. This is your beloved and you need not share your dialogue with anybody, it’s all yours. However you cannot help but share your beloved with others when you become married to HIM, as the LOVE that appears within your heart is like an eternal fountain within you. As a restriction on the persons egoistic desires occurs and prayer for the Creator to give develop altruistic intentions is performed with pure intentions for change, gradual recognition of the Creator within the person develops. The ever-increasing sensation of the Upper force is the gradual ascent toward the Creator in our inner perceptions. Like a ladder which reveals more and more the revelation of the Creators LOVE to his creation. This kind of love is not an emotion, but an awareness and forms a new consciousness within you.
Obviously this is not a complete explanation of what I wish to share, as matters as profound as Genesis would warrant chapters in length, and still remain severely incomplete. I point more to a certain kinda relationship that has appeared to me from within as a perceived Light emanating from a still hidden area. Obviously the infinite layers of creation make any attempt at discussion lacking. I wished to share this with a friendly spirit of childlike banter to another in the school yard of LIfe, and it is a personal view that I have within myself. I again am no authority on this and only speak what my personal views are.
