The Word of God, spoken within Himself, sets the Law (which is also in Himself) in motion. The result is Creation. The Word is the mold, which acting through Law produces form. As there are many words so there are many forms, each distinct and each an individualized idea of God.

Since the Word of God is permanent, when He speaks that Word is equipped to perpetuate Itself, even as the seed contains within itself all that is necessary for the reproduction of its kind. It does not become another kind for this would produce confusion and the Divine Mind is never confused.

God made the mechanical universe, the plant and animal life, but this did not satisfy Him, for He wished to create a being who could respond to and understand Him. So He created a being who had real life within himself.

He could do this only by imparting His own nature to this being whom He called man. He must make him in His own image and likeness. Man must be created out of the stuff of Eternity, if he is to have real being. Humanity must partake of the nature of Divinity if it is to have real life. So God made man from the essence of Himself and clothed this subtle essence with definite form.

And God said within Himself something after this fashion: "If I wish to have a man who is a real being, I must give him self-choice. He must be spontaneous, not automatic. He must have dominion over everything that is of less intelligence than himself. I will let him name everything I have created and he shall have all things to enjoy, for his life must be full and complete if he is to express My nature."

So God gave man dominion over all earthly things. Man was not given the power to govern the universe, but he was given the power to have dominion.

And God viewing all that He had created saw that it was good, "very good." How could it be otherwise since He had created it? How could God, being Goodness, see other than good?

This, briefly, is the story of Creation. The reader need not be startled by this rather human narrative. Remember we are
