First there were Beings, Thinking. That is how things were, from always.
Then there was Love.
Love's origin is the primal love of our
Heavenly Parents (Father and Mother, Male and Female), which initiates Creation.
Then there was Creation.
Creation is the Thinking of Beings.
Love is the metaphysical principle of cohesion that is fundamental to creation: it is the background, the basis of Creation; because with Love, Creation is harmonised, coordinated, mutually-reinforcing.
