Creation Myth

godEvery culture has a creation myth. Ours is that the world was created in six days and the first humans were Adam and Eve. The Apache Indians have Changing Woman who was impregnated by the sun and gave birth to Nayé Nazghane, Slayer Of Monsters. The Norse people have Odin and Ymir … the Ancient Greeks, Gaia. But I would like to tell you guys how we really got here, and why. If you like, you may call this Andrew’s creation myth.

Long, long ago, in a place of no time and no space, existed an entity. As far as The Entity knew, It just was, and always had been. Before the universe we inhabit existed, before time existed, before space existed, It was. Within The Entity were the powers of creativity and It knew of their existence, but the ways to produce them were unknown to It. The entity existed in a State of Being, but without a means to find an expression for that Being.

We were within Its dreams, and while still within Its dreams, It gave us consciousness. The Entity felt pressure from us, the conscious but still only probable selves who found ourselves in a God’s dream. To release us would give us actuality, but it would also mean losing a portion of Its consciousness—a portion of Itself. With love and longing, It let us go. We exploded in a flash of creation. We were free!

god-lvWe were still in a place of no time and no space. Therefore, we created time and space. We created our universe and many other universes and dimensions. But I will speak only of the universe that we inhabit.

We populated what we had created with a portion of ourselves. We created the stars and the planets. Because we existed in a place of no time, the eons upon eons that it took for the cosmic dust to congeal into stars and the planets to cool, was less than a day to us.

To paraphrase the Bible, we looked upon what we had created and saw that it was good. However, we were not done with our creating; after all, that is why we separated from our brother—we are the expression of Its Being.

Once the planets had cooled enough to support life, we created their ecosystems and injected portion of ourselves into it. We started the process of life.god-ll

After countless millenniums, the life forms on the various planets were at a stage of development that we could dwell in them and experience the physical realm. Because we are of this star system, of the planet known as Earth, I will speak of the events that took place here, although similar things took place on other planets, in other star systems.

Once we had life up and running, we would inject ourselves into the various animal life forms to feel the sensations known only on the physical plane. The warmth of the star upon the bodies of those we inhabited, to run through the tall grass, to feel the caress of wind would thrill us to no end. Sometimes we would reside in a giant tree and experience its being for hundreds of years. Time meant nothing to us. We were gods. But, over time, we stayed on the physical plane for longer and longer periods; we did not leave to go back to our place of no time. We did not go home. We had eaten of the forbidden fruit.

Because time meant nothing to us … because we tarried too long in the bodies that we had brought into existence, some of us soon found that we could not extricate ourselves when so desired. We were stuck in the physical. This was the fall of mankind as metaphorically described in the first chapter of Genesis. In a time long forgotten, we became mired on this planet as though we had stepped into quicksand.

The portion of us who stayed in our place of no time came to the rescue of those who could not return. They tweaked the DNA of an animal that today is known as Neanderthal Man. After many, many generations, what was once an animal was ready to house those stuck in the physical. From then on, we would inhabit only that creature. We had created human beings.

Thus started the process of returning home. The entity that gave us existence loves all that we have created down to the least. It celebrates the dearness and uniqueness of each consciousness. It is triumphant and joyful at each development, of each individual. It revels and takes joy in the slightest creative act of each of us.

Each life we live is a step closer to home. Each life—when completed—is a gift to our brother, our creator. Our experiences allow It to BE. Our creative acts, as I’ve said, are the expression of Its Being. Genesis states we were made in our creator’s image. Yes, we were. We are creators also. It’s what we do.

We cannot help but create. We create every moment of our existence. We create music, we create stories and call them books, or movies, or perhaps songs. We create art … we create while at our daily jobs. We create fine meals and not-so-fine meals. We create love and we create hate. Every choice we make during every day of our lives is an act of creation. Choosing to turn on your computer was an act of creation, as was your choice to read this blog post.

god-vWe are all a part of the entity we call God, not apart from It. We have no choice but to create. It is in our being. So, as long as we are creating, why not create a better world starting with that little corner of the world that we each inhabit? You’d be surprised. All those little acts of creation add up, and the next thing you know, you’ve created a universe—a universe of love.

  1. This is such a wonderful creation story! I admire your thoughtfulness and introspection. It is very calming for me to think of it this way, and it adds a new extension to my perspective on creation. I read it to my daughter as well. I love the idea of multiple worlds/dimensions to our existence. It really follows with my spiritual beliefs. Thanks for sharing! ~Anne

  2. Such a wonderful story.. And yes.. We are indeed all of us creating..With each thought we think.. And we are as you say. Each part of the whole and so we are Co-creators with the Divine..
    And as creators, if enough of us chose.. We could change this world to one that resides in love..
    I came via Tina’s reblogging of your post..

  3. Reblogged this on TINA FRISCO and commented:
    Andrew Joyce shares his Creation Myth. I like Andrew’s take on the genesis of creation, because it posits that each piece of creation is “a part of the entity we call God, not apart from It.” In other words: Together, we constitute The Divine; and if any one part is diminished, so is the whole of us …

  4. Beautifully conceived and beautifully expressed. Thank you. Here’s to the ride back home – I believe we must love our way back. TOUGH to do with current events, but I’m workin’ on it. See you on the other side.

  5. I can’t help thinking that at each era of our understanding, we fit our beliefs into the finite mental containers that are available to us. I continue to wonder what it is that we don’t yet understand, and how that will change our description of creation.

    1. A very good observation. But if one really wants to know the truth, it’s out there. All one has to do is look for it. It took me 22 years. It was not easy and it took a lot of work. I started with Edgar Cayce as my foundation and built from there. Start with “There is a River” by Thomas Sugrue.
