There is not just creation in this mortal world; but there is also chaos interwoven; around us, within us, everywhere.
Chaos is what undoes all creation on this earth - it is 'entropy' - the tendency to decay, disease, corruption, death... Every Being, entity, "thing" is always unravelling, dying.
So, in this world, we are continually choosing either to affiliate with the divine creation, or with chaos.
There is a divine energy behind creation. In affiliating we creation we (as children of God) give some of our own divine energies to the divine creation. But in affiliating with chaos we are reducing creation to chaos - and some of these creation-energies are released, and taken...
Thus creation is an active participation that enhances the whole; while to affiliate to chaos is to be a parasite (at best!) - destroying the wholeness of creation, and taking the energies of creation for oneself.
We are here to choose.
Which do we love? Creation? Do we want to join-with creation and draw-upon the the creative essence in our-selves to add to creation, harmoniously?
Or, do we intend to use creation for our own goals; do we want to take and redirect the energies released as creation is destroyed?
Or, do we want divine creation to be controlled, directed and shaped in accordance with our own (totalitarian, this-world, socio-political) ideology?
Or, perhaps we simply hate creation, resent its very existence; and want to see it destroyed; will even use our own energies to see it destroyed (even whether or not we personally benefit from that destruction).
But the core choice is binary: Are we for divine creation; or (in some way) against it.
Because being against creation, one may change one's motivations, as corruption affects a person, as evil gets a grip and attains mastery over a soul..
The lust-full hedonist becomes a soul-less bureaucrat becomes one who loathes all that is Good simply because it is Good...
Such is this mortal life of mine, of yours - woven from strands of creation and chaos.
Life comes to us; in thought as well as action - like it or not. And we choose between the strands - again and again until the final choice.
We experience both sides of life; we are intended to learn what these two possibilities entail and imply; we should learn to discern between them - to know them the one from the other.
So, we live this life; we our-selves are both divine, and also we are always returning to chaos. We are compelled to choose where our affiliation lies...
We may change sides for a while, but eventually we must pick sides: forever.
Are we to become a co-creator in the divine work of creating (resurrected life in Heaven)?
Such is our mortal life, such is this dual world of creation and entropy and our life of choosing, our life - ultimately - of making a commitment one way, or the other. To join-with and participate in creation... Or, else to reduce creation towards chaos for our own purposes - whether to vampirically feed-upon creation's energies, to control and direct creation, or reduce creation to chaos from sheer destructive spitefulness.
