Jesus said, "Seek and you will find. Yet, what you asked me about in former times and which I did not tell you then, now I do desire to tell, but you do not inquire after it."
In our studies of verse 92 last week, I was struck by this statement Tau made in his commentary:
"The mystic understands that, just as the master and disciple need one another for fulfillment and completion, so God needs a divine humanity for fulfillment and completion."
Who has taught such an idea, that God needs us for fulfillment? In orthodoxy humans seem a flawed and capriciously conceived creation whose purpose is simply to worship God and get on the rolls of vicarious salvation by saying the "magic words" and agreeing to concepts of God put forth by a church claiming to preach "the truth."
God needs us? This certainly speaks powerfully of our interbeing, our interconnection with God and all beings. We certainly need God, for without God there is nothing, no life, no creation, no us, nothing!
The idea that God created us for God's fulfillment sends me into wonder, awe, that we are an integral part of our God, our Creator. This brings up deeper levels of spiritual pride and spiritual humility at the same time. When I wake up in the morning I have a purpose that is nothing short of amazing! Each of us has this purpose! We are each given a new day in which to work toward the fulfillment of God, ourselves, and all beings- one purpose with a unique portion for each of us.
I wonder if anyone else has found this statement to be as mind-blowing as I have found it. It seems to express the heart of our Gnostic Gospel of Transformation in a way that is both incredibly empowering and humbling at the same time.
Perhaps insights will be stirred by this contemplation, all as Ma wills.
May we pursue God's fulfillment with all our heart, soul, mind and life!
