From tiny spec of planet, at the edge of the Milky Way, we contemplate the Creator. Sooner or later, those who believe in God are compelled to attempt to comprehend the incomprehensible. To contemplate the existence and characteristics of a Creator, leaves one with no superlatives left to describe what, who, when and why it is.
What could the nature of the infinite identity that created everything and lives in all creation possibly be? What could God look like or where could an infinitely self-conscious being inhabit and who can fathom the Creator’s unsearchable thoughts.
Although it might be incomprehensible to think of the never ending, infinite, universal, supreme soul as “He”, this primal mind, and this self-existent paradox has the characteristics of a spiritual father that oversees His creation with paternal divinity.
And all the universes can’t contain Him and He is without error. He is the first cause, the cause of all causes, and the bountiful cornucopia from which all things emanate.
When we pass on from this life we will not meet the “Maker.” Or see His face. Or sit before him in judgment and he won’t be meeting you at the pearly gates. He is too big to meet, has too many faces to see one, but we will be closer to the source without a body, but unable to comprehend a being that is infinite in all its attributes. How close is up to us. It depends on how close we want to get to the fire; the fire that has no beginning or end; the paradox of all paradoxes.
He is not a universal accident. He is an entity who knows and understands Himself completely. From this understanding, He generates a divine plan with an eternal purpose. He is timeless and inhabits eternity. Without a past present or future, He is present every moment. And so, through a series of personality distributions which are diminishingly absolute, the infinite Father is enabled to enjoy close contact with the diverse intelligences of the many realms of his far-flung universe. He inhabits the present moment with all his absolute majesty and eternal greatness yet, His ways are unsearchable.
And these things are absolutely true, notwithstanding the difficulty of their comprehension, the mystery in which they are enshrouded, or the impossibility of their being fully understood by creatures such as dwell on the Earth or any other planet including the sun.
He inhabits the circle of eternity. He must live in the paradise of paradises; a celestial environment that extends outward from everywhere; a place of undiluted perfection.
Human limitations and potential evil are not a part of the divine nature, but man’s experience with evil and all man’s relations are most certainly a part of God’s ever-expanding self-realization in us, the children of time.
