There is from the Greek to the English an incredibly wide range of
translation possibilities, which
is actually the case in many instances
like for the case of belief and faith. It is for this reason that we MUST
the paradigm right, and let the paradigm guide us in our translation.
The Creator Story--One Version
In the beginning, She decided
to do something risky. She designed a plan to enhance her own life to
the fullest degree. The plan involved having families, a first family
and then other families. An open ended plan to maximize and to continue
to expand the growing fulfillment that comes from community,
fellowship, communion, loving and sharing.
So She created a mate, a Man.
She made him into an exquisitely wonderful creature with the potential to be
equal with herself. She poured out herself into him and filled him with
the desire for a woman, and filled herself with the desire for a man.
She made him to be a vessel of intelligence, wisdom, nobility, strength, compassion,
sensitivity, kindness and good will, all of the virtues that She herself included.
She shared all of her own power, creativity, potential and rights with him.
Can we imagine that he was
indifferent to her? Oh no! Although overwhelmed with her beauty and
allure, he saw her desire for him and her desire to please him. He
understood her need for him, and her and his own need for intimacy. He
chose to be her lover and equal. They had the first romance, they loved
each other, they mated and started a family. As each new member of the
family was added, they were raised and nurtured to be fully endowed
god/human citizens of the growing universe. As each individual matured
they also embraced a mate and started a family. As each new family was
added, the power, creativity and potential of these combined and unified creation
agencies grew exponentially.
Since the purpose of life is
enjoyment, fulfillment and ever increasing the level of morale, each
creator pleases to delight others with his creativity. The entire group takes responsibility to vet
any new idea of a new feature of the universe before
it is inaugurated by the group. And when it is made real, it is then savored and
enjoyed by the delighted balance of the citizens. It is in this way that
the universe enjoys an ongoing program of creativity in new features as
well as new celestial real estate and new families and family members.
Given the power of the creator
to have begun the creation of the universe, the author of this site thinks
that this gender version is as likely as any other!
