Chapter Two-------The Beginning
In the beginning God created the invisible Heaven and the visible Earth. The Heavens represent
the invisible (mind) and the Earth represents the visible (body).
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty,
darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
The above quote from Genesis explains that the visible body was void until God gave it form and
animated it with His Spirit. Darkness was over the surface of the deep refers to the lack of
consciousness. There was lack of consciousness (darkness) within that which was formed.
The waters is a term for existence (The river of life means the life within existence). Here it is
saying the life within existence had no consciousness and so the Spirit of God was at work
(hovering over the waters) to put consciousness into existence. (Life does exist without
The seven processes of creation:
Day One: Let there be light. It is the day consciousness (light) was separated from
Day two: Separation of the waters above from the waters below. This is the separation of eternal
life or existence (waters above) from physical life/existence (waters below)
Day three: Let the water under heaven gather to one place and let dry ground appear. Here, God
took all the life within the physical realm and placed them in a specified location. Then God said,
“Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with
seed in it, according to their various kinds. This part is about God creating a body of
incorruptibility. (fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds means they cannot be
corrupted to produce a different kind of fruit). This is the formation of the incorruptible physical
body in which the life (water) was to dwell. As long as his creation consumed the incorruptible
trees (trees which only reproduce their own kind) the creation would be incorruptible, for you
become like that which you consume. However, any creature which consumes a corrupted tree
(tree which produces two different kinds of fruit instead of producing only after its own kind---
AKA tree of the knowledge of good and evil---) then that creature will shed its incorruptibility and
become corrupted just like the corrupted tree that creature consumed.
Day four: Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky (innate wisdom within the mind) to
separate the day (Truth) from the night (ignorance), and let them serve as signs to mark seasons
and days and years, and let them be lights in the earth. God made two great lights – the greater
light (Wisdom) to govern the day (Truth) and the lesser light (Knowledge) to govern the night
(ignorance). He also made the stars. (senses which carry information into the person).
