Mysteries of Creation
The Creator is eternal, His creation, the soul, also eternal — yet is there some significance to this word "creation"?
The story of creation is very different from the one we have imagined, for when God has been called the Creator, some have thought this to mean that He created nature, others thought that He created souls, or, at least the situations we now find ourselves in. But then we wonder how God could create a world such as this, with tragedy and sorrow, and we even question the existence of God at all. If God is loving, merciful and just, can He be the creator of the world we see around us?
Through this understanding of eternity (the cycle of time), we no longer attach blame to the Supreme Being for our present-day situation. Through the understanding of karma, the laws of action and reaction, we realize that we have created this situation for ourselves.
The actions of the Golden and Silver Ages, are neutral, with neither positive nor negative reactions. The soul simply enjoys the fruit of the positive actions it has performed in the Confluence Age - period leading up to the Golden Age.
As the soul uses up its stock of pure karma, it comes to a point in the Copper Age where that stock is totally depleted. At that point it has come into body consciousness, so that there is no awareness of pure action, and from that moment on, impure actions begin bringing with it the result of sorrow and suffering. Negative karma, sinful actions, continue through the Copper Age and the Iron Age and reach their climax. It is at this point that the story of creation begins. It is now that the Supreme Father intervenes, picking up the pieces and re-shaping human beings into their original Divine form once again.
The Supreme Father intervenes directly at the end of the cycle and brings about the creation of the Golden Age (metaphorically speaking, and also, in a sense, in reality). From the soul in a state of degradation and impurity, the Supreme Father recreates (transforms) the soul to the most elevated stage of purity. This is the divine act of God. This is the story of creation.
WHAT EXACTLY IS MEANT BY GOD THE CREATOR, GOD THE SUSTAINER AND GOD THE DESTROYER?
The Creator Himself reveals this mystery, so that creation can be understood as clearly as re-creation. Destruction is also easy to understand because there has to be destruction of all that is old and evil before something new and pure can take its place.
Let us once again turn to the cyclic pattern of events. This particular period of time is the Confluence; the end of the Iron Age and the beginning of the Golden Age. This is the period of the double act of God. The acts of creations and destruction take place simultaneously.
The role of Creator is, of course, the most interesting one, because something new is being born. There is the birth of the New Age. How is it that God will create the new age?
Re-creation takes place, first and foremost, on the spiritual level, so that the soul is given a new understanding, a new realization and awareness. The only method for creating a new soul from the one already in existence is by changing its intellect, by educating it. But the information needed to transform the soul is only within the Supreme. When knowledge is revealed by the Supreme, the human intellect is divinised. The intellect which was once not able to see beyond physical limits is even able to settle all the karmic bondages it has accumulated. It can prepare itself with the new qualities necessary for the Golden Age.
It is not however just a question of preparing the soul. While the soul is still surrounded by a world of impurity, a cleansing process or purging has to take place, and this is the role of God as Destroyer. Not the destroyer of human beings or the material world, but the destroyer of all evil. The force of purity and righteousness is so strong - there is the automatic destruction of evil.
However, the destruction of evil cannot simply take place on a spiritual level, it has physical manifestation as well. For a long time the forces of nature have been growing more and more violent, and now they react with great strength and there is physical destruction through natural calamities. This is the second force which brings about destruction on a physical level.
The third and final aspect of the powers of destruction is the stock of nuclear weapons man has created. Instead of using his energy for constructive purposes, it has been channeled into this destructive one. But destruction is a means of complete purification, a cleansing, and with that final act of nuclear war there will be liberation for all souls — all of them can return to their original home, the Land of Peace.
This is not the direct act of God. The direct act of God is the creation, the process of destruction happens automatically with the force of violence by humans.
