And eerily quiet...
I was going crazy in my isolation and living in nothingness.
I was so lonely and so utterly bored that I thought I would just burst.
I needed a purpose, a reason to get outta bed!
Then I had this mad dream and I knew what I had to do!
I got busy…real busy.
I started out with a simple step, akin to playing with marbles. Using a combination of physics, trigonometry and a touch of magic I was able to create the universe including the earth all whilst in the dark.
But how could I appreciate such clever craftsmanship without seeing it?
So logically the next step was to turn on the light!
Oh! how beautifully that sun burned, the dawns, the sunsets, the midday heat they were all superb. I felt a tingling of happiness that turned into exhilaration and I just couldn't wait for tomorrow. I stayed up all night, planning, scheming and calculating my next move.
I separated the skies from the seas but it was still very blue in the day and still so black in the night.
“But what was amiss?” I thought.
Grounded, yes I needed to feel grounded! Somehow I knew that if I commanded the earth to rise from beneath the seas I would be able to feel the cool green grass between my toes and the yearning from my deepest part would be satiated for the time being.
Yes for the time being... it was a glorious feeling.
The land rose and I began to colour in its landscape. Sure I got involved and unashamedly I got carried away with my green and brown paintbrush.
I admit it.
I created a wondrous array of trees, shrubs, cacti, seaweed, buckwheat, you name it and without ever steering outside what had become the pooey-slime palette before me. Upon realising this I quickly got out the rest of my paints and in the late afternoon of day 3 I added a rainbow of flowers that you will see in your garden today. I was happy with the days work and slept like a baby that night.
But upon awakening the next morning my heart was aching and I felt desolate.
To be honest, I initially thought I had created the world flat! But as it turned out, I had created a myriad of rolling balls, orbiting one another in an elliptical fashion that gravity dictated. Needless to say with the sun being bigger than the stars they were locked into an unseeingly infinite dance towards her grandeur.
The sheer broad daylight forbid me to witness these spiralling patterns. As did the black night skies.
I knew by the laws of physics that it was preposterous to even consider creating another sun so close to the earth.
So I had to make do with what I had done already! I sent these stars into distant lands whereby the light of our sun lit up their bodies in the night sky like a disco globe. I cried with glee that night.. Soo perfect...soo happy!
The next day I looked at the blue ocean and then I looked at the green brown earth which had been be-speckled with the vibrancy of my yesterdays colour madness.
Yes I distinctly remember thinking how plain and empty it looked! Perhaps due to my preoccupation of all things bright I hadn't noticed this before. I realised that what I had created on a whim looked more barren and windswept than my deserts!
I had to do something about it, but what?
I thought really hard.
After deep thought I managed to conjure up some impossibly resilient creatures that could survive in such a hostile, wily, wet and salty environment?
Hello shark, whale, seahorse, grouper, turtle, seals, starfish, limpet and in fact everything you see before you today (minus the gargantuans and minuscules knocked out by the natural selection bowling ball).
The sunset came and the night fell.
The day was done and I could do no more for the sea.
I drifted off to a restless sleep.
Upon awakening I realised that the blessed land was owed the same wondrous manifestations of fauna that I had bestowed upon the seas.
I went to town!
I was intoxicated by my never ceasing drive to populate the earth with the most ridiculous, incredulous and marvellous creatures ever to breathe.
Coming up with their names was just as titillating as procuring their form. Elephants with enormous ears, legs and trunks. Stripy animals, spotted animals, furry and scaly! Nocturnal, diurnal, carnivorous, omnivore, herbivore it would work itself out! Amphibians what a hoot! Flying, climbing, prehensile tails, talons, beaks, jaws, lips its was a whirlwind of madness!
How I laughed and rejoiced in every creatures magnificence! From the tiniest amoeba to the grandest of brontosaurus! I cried out loud many a time at the formations before me.
Whether it was driven from egotism or vanity I will never know to this day as my mind was clouded by the flurry of my creations? But I needed to beget a being in my own image!
So from a lump of silken clay I began sculpturing and I soon fashioned a being in my own likeness. Just cut down to size, which is the way I like it! I was in awe at the uncanny likeness, so strong, so powerful and I called him man, Adam in fact. He was a handsome brute perhaps lacking a little in the intellectual stakes but it had been a long day already.
Feeling the satisfying glow of my victory of labour I decided to call it a day. Off to sleep I went as soon as my head hit the pillow I was in lala land…hmm…peace.
I awoke the next day eagerly anticipating my next creation. Initially I had set myself 7 nights to complete my “overcoming despair, loneliness and boredom” task. Here I was day 7 and all was done. So I decided to sleep a little more and dozed off until lunch.
After relishing a newly invented BLT sandwich I took time out to peruse my handiwork that I had created single-handedly. Wow what a universe! I
Impressive if I do say so myself! hee hee…
The sky was blue and the sun shone brightly that day. The seas churned with dancing tides and the fishes swam so swimmingly!
The gardens were flourishing upon the earth and the creatures hopped, skipped and jumped all around the place. The pecking order of the food chain established itself fast but I chose to turn a blind eye to that blood bath!
What will be will be I say!
However it wasn't until I narrowed in on Adam prancing around the garden of Eden that I realised the follies of my ways.
He had seemed happy enough discovering his habitat with child-like abandon. But curiously, I looked closer still and I saw in his eyes loneliness.
He was lonely. Just like Me. Wandering aimlessly looking for something but that he knew not what?
I had placed upon the earth a being who was looking for something that he would never find.
Something called love. He had nada to love, nada to talk to and nada to hold!
He needed a companion that he could communicate with, someone to share his inner most desires and secrets with.
Here I was the Lord, the Creator of everything who had denied him this pleasure.
So on the 8th day I got up early before the dawn cracked and I decided to make things right.
Well I knew I couldn't fashion another man! God no!
There had been no rain that week so there was no clay to be found for another man in my likeness.
“What could I do?” I said.
Without another thought and whilst Adam was blissfully sleeping I plucked a rib from his frame!
That is what I did and I’m sorry for the pain it may have caused but it was necessary.
Yes it was necessary to create another being that I called woman, Eve in fact.
Adam awoke and upon seeing Eve (and her him) fell in love just as I had hoped!
Then I did something that I seldom do… I appeared before them and I don’t know why but I instructed them to go forth and procreate. To populate these lands before them!
Just for fun I added the extra instruction that they should never eat the delicious apples from the apple tree or else!
Else being that if they did eat the apple, sin will be innate in all of any forthcoming children. I’m sorry. I regret this in hindsight but I felt I needed to show Who was boss.
I’m true to My word no doubt in that!
Anyhoo, after planting Eve on this blessed earth, I vowed that I would sit back and watch my creations do what they do.
I wanted to see what would happen organically to a human race without me involved. A bit like staring at an aquarium but a lot less boring and way more violent and funny.
Yes I vowed to myself that I wouldn't intervene ever again and would just watch what they did! Apart from a few instances I’ve stayed true to My word to this day!
They tried calling out to me but I chose to ignore their pleas.
Eventually they stopped.
Now fast forward to today… Its been awhile I know. But with the advent of social media today and the outreach it gives to the greater world (albeit those in poverty with no internet connection), I have decided to break My vow of silence. Im doing away with My screens of shroud. Forget the tablets, forget the burning bush! I will speak loud and clear through the ingenuity of the net!
Hello world, this is Me. I’m back!
Your Creator, Saviour and BFF.
Feel free to start a thread, ask Me a question. I will answer with my Gods honest truth. Ive come a long way since the Old Testament. Don’t fear me! Love me like I love you! Go on ask Me something….
Yours Truly and with Holiness,
