Allegory of the Puzzle
Chapter 1 Purpose to Life:
Before the material universe was created, all that existed was in the incomprehensible mind of All That Is – God. In this state, God knew all there was to know but could not experience or feel it. The reason was simple. In the Absolute, there are no opposites to compare things to; just the purest love, joy and bliss imaginable.
There is a big difference between having knowledge about something and experiencing and feeling that same thing. For example, one can know about joy, but only if there is sadness to compare it to. One can also know about love, but experiencing and feeling it is something quite different.
Without opposites in the Absolute, we could not compare or relate to anything, nor could we have emotions. One cannot experience and feel hot unless there is cold, health unless there is sickness, joy unless there is sorrow, love unless there is hatred, forgiveness unless there is anger, compassion unless there is bitterness, masculinity unless there is femininity, and so on. God desired to experience polarity.
Your soul, your higher self, is immensely powerful beyond your current ability to understand it. Why? Because it is a fragment or miniaturized version of its Source. Said another way, it is God expressing itself as God. Your soul is a sacred piece of All That Is.
The soul is the sum total of every feeling you have ever created and experienced. Your awareness of some of these is called your memory. When you have a memory, you are said to re-member. That is, to put back together; to reassemble to the parts. When you reassemble all the parts of you, you will have remembered who you really are.
