我分割我的神聖目的，就是要創造足夠的我的部分，以使我能在經驗上認識我自己(know Myself experientially)。只有一個方法能夠「讓造物者在經驗上認識他自己為造物者」，那就是去創造(create)。而我給與每一個我無以計數的部分(我所有的靈的兒女)跟我做為「整體」所擁有的是一樣的創造力。
這正是你們的宗教說你們是「按照神的形象和模樣」被造出來的意思。這並不是指——如某些人解釋的——我們的身體看起來肖似(雖然神可以為一個特殊的目的採取任何祂想要的具體模樣)，但它的確是指我們的本質是相同的(our essence is the same)。我們是由同樣的東西組成的。我們是「相同的東西」(“same stuff”)！我們具有所有同樣的屬性和能力——包括無中生有地創造出物質實相的能力。
我創造你們——我的靈的兒女——的目的，是為了要體認我自己為神。除了經由你們，我沒有其他辦法做到這一點。因此可以說(並且已說過許多次了)我對你們的目的是：你們應該去體認你自己為我(you should know yourself as Me 去認識自己的「神性」)。
My divine purpose in dividing Me was to create sufficient parts of Me so that I could know Myself experientially. There is only one way for the Creator to know Itself experientially as the Creator, and that is to create. And so I gave to each of the countless parts of Me (to all of My spirit children) the same power to create which I have as the whole.
This is what your religions mean when they say that you were created in the "image and likeness of God." This doesn't mean, as some have suggested, that our physical bodies look alike (although God can adopt whatever physical form God chooses for a particular purpose). It does mean that our essence is the same. We are composed of the same stuff. We ARE the "same stuff"! With all the same properties and abilities—including the ability to create physical reality out of thin air.
My purpose in creating you, My spiritual offspring, was for Me to know Myself as God. I have no way to do that save through you. Thus it can be said (and has been, many times) that My purpose for you is that you should know yourself as Me.
