This is a creation of love, and you are within this creation in such a way that love is called forth from you. It’s quite simple to pose the question of the purpose of the creation by suggesting that it is from love and to love that all originates and is directed. But, there is inevitably a question that will arise upon the minds of those who seek, and it is “Why should there need to be, in a creation of love, an effort made to love? Why should there need to be, in a creation of love, an experience of impediments to love? Why should there need to be—in a creation in which love is Alpha and Omega, source and destiny—an experience so bereft of love that love itself can at times seem to be the most impossible result, the most difficult task that one can be required to do?” And to ask this question is to focus on love as a particular kind of activity in which you can engage. You may engage indeed in many kinds of activities, and it is easy to list love upon a long list of things you might accomplish in the course of the day.
Free will to form love
There is another sense of love, however, which we would invite you to consider. We have suggested that, in the nature of the creation itself, love may be counted as one of the early distortions that permit differentiated experience, that permit individuated souls to find their way, to have experiences in a diverse creation and to bring back to the Creator the fruits of these experiences. This portion of the nature of the creation we have sometimes called the second distortion. Now, the first distortion in this creation we have called free will, so it may well seem that love is a dimension of the nature of the way things are that comes about as a result of a first innovation, shall we say, in the creation, involving the development of free will.
