The material world is a place where each thing seems to say, “Here I am and here I have always been”—as though it has no origin.
Only the Creator Himself has no origin. He always was and is and will be.
This is the truth of what our world is trying to tell us: It is expressing—in a distorted way—its own true essence, the essence of all that is.
A time is yet to come when the distortion shall vanish, when each thing shall declare, “My true essence and being is not me. It is my Creator, who is, was, and always will be.”
