#6 : Gospel of John : John 1:1-3a
Hello Lightworkers, creative ones:
Since the divine spirit is within all of us — at least according to spiritual literature and the New Testament – how can you notice and cultivate this divine creativity in your life? What does the opposite feel like, i.e. stagnation?
The opening of John’s Gospel gets at the divine creativity, which it calls the “Word.” This Word (Greek: logos) is not the same as human language. The logos (in ancient Greek), is a principle of order and wise design. This wise design may manifest as beauty, goodness, harmony, or a state of well-being and flow.
John 1: 1-3a : “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the begining with God. 3 All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being.”
This verse alludes to Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning.” Just as God created all of life by the Word (or creative principle) in Genesis, so this same divine creativity, as the Word, is making itself felt again. The “Word” will be identified as Jesus Christ, in the ensuing verses (NB: the word is called “he” in v.2).
It is this Christ – the logos, creative principle – which gives people the power to become “children of God” (1:13), so we are re-created in a manner that fulfills our potential beyond our self-imposed limitations.
This creative principle energizes us to step into the natural flow of who we are.
Question: Where is the creative principle at work in your life? Notice, and track it, today. What are its effects? How can you make space for this creative principle, and encourage it? Even if it’s invisible?
