Creation

On reflection of my life

I start here

Where I am now

 

According to the Bible,

If the creation story holds true

Which it will,

We can all trace our line

Back to the garden

To Adam and Eve

The first man and first woman

The only two never born

And these two are one

 

But further back

Before Eve

There was only Adam

Yet she was with him

A part of him

A rib, some say

 

So she was present

With him

Before she was

Taken from him

And made to appear

Separate from him

 

Before that

There was no Adam

Only the dust of the ground

Out of which the man was formed

And became a living soul

After receiving the breath of life

 

Before that there was light

 

Before that there was

Heaven and earth

And God who created them

What is seen and what is not

The form and the formless

The particle and the wave

And these two are one

 

And between the creation

Of heaven and earth

And the light

Was the spirit of God

She who was with him

In the beginning

Before the dividing time

 

Genesis 1:2

“The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Savior

If the sinner

Gives rise to a savior

Who is the sinner

 

If one breaks the law

To fulfill the law

Who is the transgressor

 

These are the two

Who overcame death

And these two are one

The sinner and her savior

 

I Timothy 2:14-15

“And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.  Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”

 

The Mind

The mind has the ability

To remember or forget

 

Our collective purpose

On this planet

Is to love each other

And see Christ in each other

 

Some have remembered that

And some have forgotten

 

Use your mind to remember

That which was in the beginning
 

St. Matthew 27:46

“…My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

 

St. John 17:24

“…for thou loved me before the foundation of the world.”
