“The universe formed out of what God is.
“The universe is the natural extension of divine creativity and intent, lovingly formed from the inside out so there was consciousness before there was matter, and not the other way around.
“In certain basic and vital ways, your own consciousness is a portion of that divine gestalt. In the terms of your earthly experience, it is a metaphysical, a scientific, and a creative error to separate matter from consciousness, for consciousness materializes itself as matter in physical life.”
(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment, Session 886)
