Love

Christ teaches

From experience

 

To teach love

One must be love

And God is love

 

Christ teaches love

 

That which was here

In the beginning

Before the foundation

Of the world

When he loved us first

 

To teach love

One must first

Have loved

 

St. John 17:24

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

 

I John 4:19

“We love him, because he first loved us.”

 

 

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.”

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.”
