The Breaking of Light

A Lesson upon the first chapter of Genesis:

The Absolute has no unexpressed possibilities. Truth of Being is Completeness and Limitlessness.

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." The Limitless admits neither beginning nor ending. "In the beginning" has been an ambiguous expression implying something beyond man's conception --- and truly it is so. Man can not conceive of the Eternal; it is out of the realm of conception.

Eternally God creates the heaven and the earth --- unceasingly are the realities of Truth being expressed. The first individual thought reaching to its utmost capacity, calls the limit of its vision "the beginning," associating with this "the end." Eternity that the infant thought can not grasp is the Truth of beginning and ending.

Why in God's kingdom are there "infants"? What would our little world be without its children? What if all were born men and women? Much of the joy of living would be eliminated. We love the children. Their little mistakes are sweet to our ears. We do not have to take them seriously; their very innocence is our delight.
