The misbelief humanity (or self) separated from God.
(A) . . . He has not willed that any soul should perish, but from the beginning has prepared a way of escape! What, then, is the meaning of the separation? Bringing into being the various phases that the soul may find in its manifested forms the consciousness and awareness of its separation, and itself, by that through which it passes in all the various spheres of its awareness. Hence the separation, and light and darkness. Darkness, that it had separated that a soul had separated itself from the light. Hence He called into being Light, that the awareness began. Hence we look out and see the heavens, the stars; and, as the psalmist has said: "The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament sheweth his handiwork, as day unto day uttereth speech and night unto night sheweth knowledge" . . .
(Q) (288): Is it true that day and night are condensed or miniature copies of incarnations into the earth and into planetary or spiritual sojourns; they in turn being miniature copies of what took place in the beginning?
(A) Very good, if you understood just what all this means! It's a very good illustration of that which has just been given; as to how there is the evolution of the soul, evolution of the mind, but not evolution of matter save through mind, and that which builds same . . .
(Q) (295): May I have a message on Day and Night that will help me in my contribution to the lesson?
(A) Think on the experiences of self, as self has passed from darkness unto light, from day unto night, in the mental associations of that which makes the awareness of that which would make of thee a channel of blessings to many. And then there may be seen in self's experience the meaning of what is Day , and what is Night. The ability to become aware; or, to put into other words, to become conscious is Day and Night . . .
(Q) (379): May I have a message that will help me in contributing to the lesson?
(A) In self's own physical self there may be the illustration of Day and Night. Each element, each corpuscle of the body is a universe in itself, or a universe on the beginning of power and force. When there is that called dis-ease, there becomes the unawareness or the darkness of the light that may become Life in its manifested form. So, from Day and Night gain this lesson: Only in the experiencing of that which is the awareness of same may we know what is Day and Night. [Cayce (262-56)]
"We were speaking of love and why there could be those that wish to be outside of Creator. Control is the opposite of love and is what the outsiders want. Control is the mechanism that sets man apart from Creator. It is human separation that has made, yes, made evil. And all evil is made in separation. We cannot make truth any more simple. Now abideth love and you can only image the height and depth you are." [Atlin]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"Creation is the product of PRIMARY IMPULSES working individually and together - making impressions upon the other, fulfilling inbuilt needs imprinted within consciousness - these needs being, at the outset to increase and experience self-expression leading to further separation then - to restore a sense of inner security and comfort - to be re-united within the harmony of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS. Out of this driving force for a re-united harmony of being, came the male-female drive for re-union to recapture the bliss which is buried in the soul consciousness." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 23]
