Throughout the history of civilization, Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament, has provided humankind with an account that explains the beginning of the world. This is a story which proclaims that a divine energy created the universe in perfect order, culminating in the creation of human life. It is said that human beings have been created in the likeness of this divine energy as a means for the divine to express itself, love and the purpose behind life.
While many of us have incorporated this historical account as our personal belief, it is rare that we embrace the implications of a divine force behind all of creation. We may accept being labeled as a child of the divine, yet we often fail to appreciate what that means on a practical level. How often do you probe what is meant by the statement that you were created in the likeness of the divine? I know that for the longest time, I considered this relationship from purely a physical perspective. I naively focused that likeness as being attached to a physical body, without giving a thought to what this could imply on a deeper level. It was through my study of A Course in Miracles that I began to entertain the idea that my mind is an extension of divine energy. I am not alone in this relationship. Your mind is an extension of the divine, too.
The implications of this understanding are huge. It means that your mind is not simply your own, rather it is a channel that you share with divine energy. Consider the significance of your thoughts if you accept that they hold divine power. Divine energy is the creative source behind the Law of Attraction, yet many people lack the awareness to see it this way. Think about the shift you make energetically through the belief that you hold divine power. The Law of Attraction can then work not like a black box that you are personally disassociated with, but as an energy that you are a part of. Embracing this concept provides you with the opportunity to take ownership of the power that you have.
