Children of The Creative Principle

The concept of a god that created all of the universe has had it's day.
Perhaps a clearer answer and perspective can be obtained with a little more objectivity.
The concept of a god that created the universe and everything in it is really just a vision of the ancients that has been passed down from generation to generation, from a time when there was no perception of the greater cosmos as it is, vast and unknowable, as far as the human intellect goes.
It is an incomplete and unsatisfying concept that is in desperate need of revision. Perhaps a melding of concepts, like the native elders offer, along with the string theory and whatever else is bound to come along, as minds open to the possibility of a Creative Principle, as oppossed to a conscious entity with a 'plan' or intention.
We are loved as much as we can love ourselves, and we may not be comfortable with the idea of being responsible for what is, but sooner or later, the child must grow into adulthood and take on the mantle of responsibility.
The ancient ways served the ancients. They do not serve us now, as our reach begins to exceed our grasp.
Leap into the void and build your wings on the way down. Or, live in the past and be crushed by the weight of the crumbling walls of the old temples.
The Creative Principle may seem to be cold and impersonal to some, but it is so beyond the scope of human awareness that it is difficult to imagine that we humans are an effect of that Principle. We see this in our constant and consistent drive to create.
We create life, we create art and honour life. We are children of the Creative Principle, and try as we will to give it our face, our sense of justice and freedom, we will never succeed in such a futile endeavor.
The Creative Principle is not human, but humanity has come from it, as has all life, now, and forever.
We are all of the same energy, there is no valid denial of this, and until we see, accept and celebrate this reality, we will live within an illusion of separation.
The greatest power we have is the power to Love. That is the essence of the Creative Principle Itself.
Walk In Beauty, Love and Be Loved.
