"And the Lord FORMED MAN of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (Genesis 2:7)
We are an extension of the creator's mind and are like him in all things. It is the creator's nature to extend and create as love, therefore, it is our nature to extend and create as love. We are created by the creator. This means we are a part of the creator.
So lets think about that for a minute. When we understand this, it means that we were not just born perfect, but still are perfect in creation. It also means that we are responsible for everything in our lives - both the things that we enjoy and the things that we do not enjoy. Do you act God-like? Do you have profound respect for your body and its purpose? Do you treat others as the living expressions of the creator that they are? Do you surround yourself with Godly environments? This means we are responsible for our health, relationships, and happiness whatever condition they are in - we create our experience here.
" Our life is the creation of our mind." (Buddha)
It also means that we have the natural abilities to transform our existence into a whole life. A life that is free of man-made illness, man-made pollution, man-made conflicts, and man-made problems. When we embrace the natural order: natural foods, meditation and mind growth, being in-tune with nature, active lives, and compassion and charity, we cross over into what we were designed to do - be whole.
We are all one
The universe is controlled by the laws of gravity, motion, and energy. Our brains fire away all day long using energy. Plants, animals, and water are all composed of it. We can go smaller and smaller, deep inside everything, from stone to mountain top, and find the same basic building block of every single thing in the universe, the atom. What is an atom? It is a swirling ball of energy and it is the basic component of everything. What is the creator? Energy, and the basic component of everything. You see we are all one, we are all the same, everything is - we are all related.
This has even been proven scientifically.
"E=mc2" (Albert Einstein)
What is the meaning of life? We have asked this of theologians and philosophers for centuries. Part of the problem is we have been looking to these people for the answer. They are the guides to the answer, not the answer. We are the answer- it lies within all of us. Why are we here? Why were we created? Why do you cook wonderful food for family and friends? Why do you appreciate music and art? For the joy of it. The creator created us for the joy of it and passed the gift of joy through creation to all of us. That's it, we exist to experience goodness, joy, love, and compassion.
"Life without goodness, good thoughts, good actions, and good words is like the sky in the night without the moon or stars. It is like a wheel without a hub or spokes! No one can push a boulder away while standing on it; you cannot be free from anxiety while all the entrances through which it sneaks in are open." (Atharva Veda quote)
Be of light, be of energy. Be all that you can dream you can be. We have everything we need inside of us to do this. It has always been there and it always will be. Be healthy, loving, joyous, compassionate, and free.
