Genesis – part 1
The Verse Uniting All of Us.
Creating a Circle of Light
Faith, Love and Hope
Will lead me in my willing
When I light a candle and unite
With the ever-present Love of the Almighty
And His Creative Force.
It works in me when I in love embrace all people
Who come to me with
Faith, love and hope.
This verse may lead us on our path
To create a circle of light around the world.
It will unite us and disperse loneliness.
It will open our minds to imagination,
Strengthen our inspiration,
And bless us with intuition.
[In this verse, the word children has been changed to people because there is a child in every person. The word people can be changed back to children when the verse is used regarding the children of a school.]
This verse came as an inspiration to me when I contemplated an ever more intense world of suffering, and it came as an answer from the spiritual world to help and to protect all people. However, in a world where every day the computer speaks louder and more distinct than the heart of a human being many people have lost hope that there is, in fact, a spiritual world. That there is guidance and protection is no longer a reality among humanity today. This article on Genesis attempts to provide some explanation of how we as modern human beings can begin to find in ourselves the source from which all blessings flow.
Why is it that nowadays there live among us many people who stand before a closed door in relation to the reality of a spiritual world? Because all that is spirit cannot be seen with physical eyes. It cannot be weighed, numbered or measured. This is a fact; yet one could argue when you feel sympathy or antipathy, when you have a positive or negative thought or a will impulse; those very human experiences can also not be seen with physical eyes and one may say that with those experiences we definitely enter into a realm away from the sense perceptible world. However, we remain in the human realm and connected to the sense world, because all our interactions are bound up with it.
Where then and how do we find the world of spirit which is so much more profound than some feelings, thoughts or the will of a human being? The spiritual world, indeed, underlies all existence in heaven and on Earth and maintains our life on Earth as well as our possibility to evolve.
What does John say in his opening words of the Gospel? In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God … Nothing that was made was made without the Word … and the word was life and life was the Light of Humanity. John talks about the beginning of the world! Is that Genesis? No not yet.
Where lies the pathway to the spiritual world? There must be many because every human being is different. Christ Jesus gives us at least one answer when He says: Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of God. [Matthew 18, 2-4; Mark 10;15]
