God does not need money, knowledge or power. Since He is the absolute, almighty Being, He does not need such things. Though modern science may be accomplishing spectacular advances, these are all part of the process of discovering new facts and truths within the realm of God’s creation. The vast expanse of this universe operates in an orderly fashion according to laws that cannot be fathomed by human thought or science. In this sense, God is also the absolute scientist.
Then what would have been the ideal that God hoped to achieve through the creation of humankind? It was to fulfill the four-position foundation. The four-position foundation signifies Adam and Eve in a state of complete union with God. This makes it impossible for them to separate from God’s realm of love, no matter how hard they may try. The four-position foundation refers to the foundation of a family with God as its center, established when the husband and wife have achieved complete oneness not only with each other but also with God, and when they have become an ideal couple and give birth to sinless children. When the family four-position foundation is thus completed, that family becomes a family of the ideal of creation desired by God.
Generally speaking, a family is formed through the coming together of husband and wife and of parents and children. God’s love must be the center of that family group. At this point, the husband represents heaven and the wife earth. Although they are two separate beings, when husband and wife have become one, horizontally speaking, their union symbolizes the unity of heaven and earth. Simply put, when husband and wife are in unity based on God’s love, the way to bring unity in the cosmos opens up.
Ladies and gentlemen, God created the world to receive joy from it. Since even the Absolute Being, God, could not feel joy while alone, He needed a partner with whom to share the giving and receiving of love. This is because joy cannot be felt all by oneself, but can only be experienced through a partner.
To put it in another way, God created this world to experience the joy of seeing humankind and all things of creation becoming one through His love, as we formed a harmonious and peaceful world of love. On such a basis, human beings were meant to form true conjugal relationships centered on God’s love, and to establish families, tribes, peoples, nations and a world of true love. God created this world to participate directly in this process and to feel joy from it.
We can see that human beings are absolutely essential to fulfill God’s ideal of love, and thus we can understand the concept that absolute value is derived from an absolute partner.
Our Parent, God, and all His children, humankind, were to form a vertical axis. This was the purpose for the creation of human beings. If this axis had been connected perfectly, that is, if God and humankind had united as one through true love, they would have been absolutely inseparable; no force in the universe could have broken them apart. How could anyone who has been bound to the original love of God, and who has tasted that love, ever be separated from it?
With the coming of spring, honeybees wake up from their long slumber and get a taste for the fresh nectar of the blooming flowers. Try pulling the abdomen of one such honeybee while it is lost to all else but sucking on that nectar. You will see that it cannot tear itself away from the nectar, even if its abdomen is pulled oﬀ. How about you? Once you really get to know the taste of God’s true love, you won’t get far from it before you come back and cling to it once again. This shows that the power of the vertical true love that connects us to God is greater than the power of life.
