What does it mean “To Create”

Sawadee Khrap

Consider Genesis 1:26

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

Here is a greet section in ACIM Chapter 8-VI  “The Treasure of God”

“We are the joint will of the Sonship, whose Wholeness is for all.  We begin the journey back by setting out together, and gather in our brothers as we continue together.  Every gain in our strength is offered for all, so they too can lay aside their weakness and add their strength to us.  God’s welcome waits for us all, and He will welcome us as I am welcoming you.  Forget not the Kingdom of God for anything the world has to offer.”

And continues:

“Listen to the story of the prodigal son, and learn what God’s treasure is and yours: This son of a loving father left his home and thought he had squandered everything for nothing of any value, although he had not understood its worthlessness at the time.  He was ashamed to return to his father, because he thought he had hurt him.  Yet when he came home the father welcomed him with joy, because the son himself was his father’s treasure.  He wanted nothing else.

God wants only His Son because His Son is His only treasure.  You want your creations as He wants His.  Your creations are your gift to the Holy Trinity, created in gratitude for your creation.  They do not leave you any more than you left your Creator, but they extend your creation as God extended Himself to you.  Can the creations of God Himself take joy in what is not real?  And what is real except the creations of God and those that are created like His?  Your creations love you as you love your Father for the gift of creation.  There is no other gift that is eternal, and therefore there is no other gift that is true.  How, then, can you accept anything else or give anything else, and expect joy in return?  And what else but joy would you want?  You made neither yourself nor your function. You made only the decision to be unworthy of both.  Yet you cannot make yourself unworthy because you are the treasure of God, and what He values is valuable.  There can be no question of its worth, because its value lies in God’s sharing Himself with it and establishing its value forever”.
