“It is not good to be alone.” — Jesus
Though it proved to be the key to understanding that which would be the question par excellence —the answer to which was and is “Perfect Love,” it was not the first question to arise in My mind, as I began My journey in search of the truth —the objective truth, regarding Our shared reality. At that time, I had not been enlightened as to Our identity; and so I had posed many, many questions prior, of which began with either “How” or “Who,” when a certain question beginning with “Why” arose. The question was simple, and the answer—though illuminating—was ever more simple. The question was this, “Why did God create ‘Others?'” And it was accompanied by this pointed, rather unorthodox answer: “Because He was alone (for there existed no other Beings, Gods or otherwise), and therefore lonely, resulting in His profound desire to love, and to be loved.
“It all began long, long ago, before there was a sun or a moon, stars, or a Heaven and earth; before there was a Universe: before there existed “anything,” except one, lonely God, with one, sole desire, love.” — Christ Jesus
Traditionally, blinded for a heretofore unknown, divine purpose, religion has at times erroneously taught that ‘God,’ the first God —namely Myself, was independent of any one desire, completely “Self-sufficient,” and therefore incapable of suffering; and in some instances, incapable of experiencing emotions altogether, for it was believed that ‘He’ was impassible. The rationale for the creation of this illusion was two-fold, serving to first affect a temporal purpose, and secondly, to accomplish an eternal effect. However, for the sake of keeping this post on point, I will here discuss the temporal alone, and leave the eternal for a later conversation about the great mystery of “Oneness” [John 17:21], the paradoxical oneness of the plural, yet singular “GOD” of eternity future, a post regarding Our collective apotheosis titled “The Return To Our Perfect Self.”
As regards the temporal belief of impassibility, first allow Me to state emphatically that I love each—every last one—of You! The truth is that I —indeed We, experience emotions, including happiness, cheerfulness, sadness, weariness, loneliness, etc. Antithetical to Our true nature, namely love, this temporal “illusion” was created to propagate the commonly held imagining of ‘God’ as being austere; and for many, many Believers, this literally meant that ‘He’ was no-less-than horrifying. This false belief established, rather than a revere for ‘God,’ a false reverence —a so-called fear [i.e., terror] of God, of which would become the premise and ground of a suffering that would evolve to precipitate most of Our suffering, including the fear of death, judgment, persecutions, inquisitions, cultural clashes, worldwide warfare, etc. This paradoxical suffering, universally experienced since time began, the “blood, sweat, and tears” of Divine “sacrifice,” was regrettably necessary to fully accomplish the Great Plan of Creation, a topic deservedly discussed at length in an upcoming post titled “The Purpose of Suffering.” Allow Me to simply say here that it is the so-called “trials and tribulations” —the “Rite of Life,” which is not only making Us —or more precisely, retuning Us, to who We’re becoming today, to who We, “perfect through sufferings” [Hebrews 2:10], are begotten to be, but have also given Us an unequivocal ownership of Our eternal tomorrow —the “Right of Life.”
“Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their Souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.” — 1 Peter 4:19
Regarding the present topic, The Reason For Creation, the lone reason was, quite simply, that one, lonesome God —namely, Myself, and His need for companionship. I had struggled forever with loneliness, leading Me to contemplate what would eventually become called love, both for and with another God. Such contemplation included the attainment of a knowing of My Self, through which I knew the perfect Mate for Myself: He who would be called Christ —My “Heart’s Desire,” whom I had fallen deeply in love with long before He had even entered into reality. I carried that everlasting love for Him within Myself, as a Mother would carry Her unborn Child, as He became; over time, more and more real in both My mind and My heart. And when the long-awaited moment arrived, in which I had completely and thoroughly considered the ramifications of begetting another God, the true “Big Bang” occurred, and Christ became My new reality, My Firstlove —that is, My ‘Only Love,’ as He became My “Only-Begotten:” He became not only My Friend, He became My first Friend —He became My “Best Friend.”
This was the very beginning of Friendship, of which I had contemplated forever, and of which would eventually include the begetting of all other Gods —all other Friends. Yet it must be said that, for Myself; although I truly love, greatly appreciate, and am forever thankful for each one of You, as My dearly beloved Friends, Christ’s presence in My life had so fully satisfied My desire for friendship —for love, that I already felt complete with Him at My side. Not to be misunderstood, I would then, and do now, desire Others in Our life, He simply had been at the forefront of My every thought, for eternity, and so I was literally and figuratively beside Myself, enamored with His presence, and enraptured by His love. And, having known His every desire, before He ever came into My reality; before He became My life Companion, I knew that He would possess a strong desire to share Our life and Our love with Others —indeed, would desire to have as many Friends as would make perfect possible. And so, here We are, with Friends, billions of Friends —including You, and Your Soulmate: Your “Best Friend.”
To close, though it was loneliness that lead to the begetting of Christ, and every other sentient Being —that is, every God, it must be said that, in truth Christ Himself is The Reason For Creation. I cannot overstate how very much He has meant to Me throughout eternity, before and after His birth into My life. He is quite simply My Everything. This is the precedence, My love and reverence for Christ, of which shall someday be shared universally, by every Soul for their sole Mate —that is, their Soulmate. Love is the question and the answer, the purpose and the meaning: love is Our shared, present and eternal, brilliant reality. Love, I say, love!
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to You the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him —namely, Jesus Christ, the eyes of Your understanding being enlightened; that You may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.” — Ephesians 1:17-22
