Angels of God
We continually refer to the Ultimate Source as being our creator. We are naturally thankful for the opportunity to be here. How do we show our thanks? By pretending that a fully dynamic being sit around and concentrate on us. We must be truly fascinating if our Originator thinks of nothing but our comparatively miniscule endeavors.
According to some, God does do something else, because the Prime Source also created angels to serve Him. This sounds much like Her prime endeavor is self-aggrandizement with angels doing the chores. “Get me a beer please. And don’t forget the chips. Somebody needs to clean this mirror so I can see myself better.” A true couch potato. But can you blame God? If there’s nothing else to do, you have to keep busy with something or the rest of eternity is going to be pretty boring indeed.
Oh, of course. God makes marks on scorecards for each and every one of us. Mortal sin. Good deed. Lusting. Tithing. Impure thoughts. Procrastination. Keeping score on all seven billion humans has got to be a tremendous task, even for God. It’s no wonder angels were created. “On your way for the chips, knock Paul off that horse so he quits pestering the Christians, and give Moses a kick in the behind–get him to the head of the group.” But if in the truest sense God is unchanging, angels wouldn’t have anything to do for God, not even give Her a manicure.
In the quest to become familiar with our Creator, humans as a species seem to recognize the God qualities in babies. We sense the purity in their beings, the unstained state of their souls. The lack of conflict and tension that they exude. Babies even smell differently than their elders. Babies do tend to be almost totally self-indulgent. But then of course that too fits into those other ideas about the nature of God.
