July 14, 2020 [Paper 116:0-1, p. 1268]

Growth is the earmark of experiential Deity, and experiential growth implies creature-Creator partnership—God and man in association. The experience of every evolving creature personality is a phase of the experience of the Almighty Supreme. The intelligent subjugation of every physical segment of the superuniverses is a part of the growing control, the evolution, of the Almighty Supreme.

      • But it's a latent phenomenon for now in time. It's pregnant with potential for future universe ages.


  • God the Mother is the way
    • No your position in the ascending career, the next infinitesimally small way forward is provided by God the Mother.
      • Different than God the Sevenfold, where the next step (meeting out Creator Son) is a long way off.
    • But God the Mother won't speak to you about what to order for lunch. No trivial minutiae.
      • Like God the Father, God the Mother also is a top-down, big-picture fact.
      • You must make decisions, decision, and more decisions. No magical parking spaces provided for you.
    • For prayers, The Father is the will, The Mother is the way.
      • But in all cases, the answer to all prayers is big picture.
      • Humble prayers supply favorable conditions so you can be grown. To the point someday of knowing the answer before you even ask.
