The First Message

The first message conveyed by the spiritual reality was the command “BE”1 2

This command initiated time and gave rise to the physical reality3

This “first message” is an initial singularity — a perfect unity — from which all matter and energy in the known universe emerges and expands into an endless expression of forms and relationships that honor their common heritage.

No matter how far-flung, differentiated, diverse, or distant waves and particles may be from one another throughout the universe, their singular origin generates an inexhaustible attractive force — a divine love — that keeps everything in the physical world interconnected.
