The story of creation : The Beginning of life. I

sky earth galaxy universe

A being looked at the lifeless world in front of him, he was afloat in the air, not touching the dark, lifeless abode of water beneath him. Holding his hands was a little boy whose radiant face looked up at him also hovering , he was his son, whom he loved very much. The being just looked at the boy and smiled. He hovered over the formless ,rocky, watery body, examining it. He could see the future, through his eyes which glowed like fiery orbs ,he saw millions of years ahead of the present and saw that the formless body was no longer dead and lifeless, it was teeming with a billion other life forms. “Father?” said the little boy, interrupting his father’s vision. The gentle being turned to him.”Why have we come here father?”he was asked .

“To create” boomed the ‘Father’, the air around them vibrated, forming huge waves in the water below them.

“But what will we make of this lifeless world?” asked the son.
“Son, how long have you been with me?” thundered the being. “For aeons” replied the son, his hands trembled as he could now sense the anger of his Father.
” In all these years have you encountered anything in the vastness of space that I ,the Lord of the cosmos found Impossible to accomplish ? Why do you doubt me? ” The Earth below them shook and shuddered as though it was living.

“Sorry Father” after a brief moment of silence he asked again, “What do you intend to do here?”
“I see my creations rejoicing my name, beings made of dust praising my name with their heart and soul” he said.
“Your creations? Where are they?”

I will bring them here, the land I create will be theirs to keep
The son wanted to reply ,but fearing the worst, chose to stay quiet .His Father was the most powerful being in the Multiverse. He had faith in him.

“Let there be light!” boomed his voice, and at his command , the world was illuminated by heavenly light, “Too much light in one place” he thought, so he separated the light from the dark so that half of the planet would receive light and dark equally. He named the light “day” and the dark as “night”.
He looked down at the innocent expression on the radiant face of his son, and smiled.
“Wonderful!” said the son gleefully , who had witnessed the power of his father yet another time. He wanted to ask where the light was coming from, but soon got distracted with how beautiful the watery body looked now, it sparkled and twinkled as though there were stars and diamonds sprinkled on it. The lights shifted twice until morning came-that was the first day.

“What will you do today father?” asked the son, excited.” Today we shall play with water” He looked chuckled at the confused look on his son’s face.
He then roared, “Let there be a dome between the waters to separate water from water” and so the waters= obeyed him. He named the dome “sky”. The son marvelled at the beauty in front of him. He could not wait to see more. The lights shifted, evening passed and Morning came-that was the second day.
He then commanded, ”Let the water below the sky come together in one place to reveal the dry land underneath it. ”-and so it was done. He named the Land “Earth” and he looked at the water that had come together in one place, and named it “Sea” . He looked at what he had made and was very pleased.
Then he commanded, “Let the earth produce all kinds of plants, those that bear grain and those that bear fruit”-and it was done. As moments passed little green shoots sprouted from the ground, each one was one of its kind. They rapidly grew, absorbing the light around them, spreading out their leaves as though they had been constricted all along, as the Father willed , plants grew to bear grains and some grew so big as to produce fruits of all colours and sizes. The son’s eyes were filled with wonder. There was something different about this world. Sure, he had seen his Father give birth to many, but something was added into this world, far more overwhelming and inexplicable than any power in the universe, –Love.
“How did all these come out of nowhere Father?” He asked. “You see son, the land that surfaced, and the water that had covered it was not some monotonous plain. It was made out of four basic elements that make up most of the things in the Universe I gave birth to.” he says casually.
“What are those Elements you speak of?”
“Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen and Nitrogen”
“What Gibberish are you uttering Father?” He laughs ,before the fire in his Father’s glare shut him up.
The Lights shifted yet again, Evening passed and Morning came-that was the third day.
Then the Lord God commanded,” Let bright lights appear in the sky to separate day from night and to show the time when days, seasons ,years and religious festivals begin; they will shine in the sky to give light to the Earth” –and it was done. God made a bigger, brighter light to rule over the day, and the moon to rule over the night. He also made stars! Yes. A whole bunch of them. He was sure those would make his life forms gaze at them in awe for hours in wonder. God was pleased with what he saw.
“Where does the dimmer light of the moon come from Father?”
“From the Brighter light” he replied.

“Makes sense”ageeed the son.
Evening passed and morning came-that was the fourth day.
Then God’s eyes fell on the vast water body and the sky around him ,”Looks a bit dull doesn’t it?”
“Let the water be filled with many kinds of living beings, and let the air be filled with birds.”
And so it was done. Numerous creatures , the first of their kind were born , differing in all sizes, shapes and colours. From the tiniest of the tiniest fishes to the greatest sea dragons, God was pleased with what he saw. He glanced from the corner of his eyes as the gigantic water beasts swam into the deep waters , so deep that not even the light of the sun could reach.
He blessed them all and told the creatures that live in the water to reproduce and to fill the sea. He then looked at the birds that weaved through the sky and told them to increase in number. Evening passed and morning came-that was the fifth day.
God looked at the colourful world before him and commanded, “Let the earth produce all kinds of animal life: domestic and wild, large and small” –and it was done. From the tiniest rat to the Largest of Elephants, the earth produced all sorts of animal kind according to God’s will. So God made them all,, and was pleased with what he saw.
The earth was finally ready for his Children who would fill the earth. He smiled, for yet again he was about to create history. He looked at his son and said “And now we will make human beings; they will be like us and resemble us. They will think like us and will have a us ” As he said this, his very heart throbbed with excitement.”They will have power over the fish, the birds , the majestic beasts, and all animals, domestic and wild, large and small” . So God created human beings, making them to be like himself. He created them male and female, blessed them , and said, “Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. I am putting you in charge of the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals. I have provided all kinds of grain and all kinds of fruits for you to eat; but for all the wild animals and for all the birds I have provided grass and leafy plants for food”-and it was done. God looked at everything he had made and was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came-that was the sixth day.
And so the whole universe was completed. He made sure, no where else would life as special as this would be allowed to exist in the universe, at least for now. The humans would try but would not fail miserably, again and again, almost forgetting how special they really are in the first place, for they were shaped by the very hands of God himself, , each with a part to play, however small, yet essential, until their time is done, and return to dust. The son stared at the tears glistening on the eyes of the All powerful and All powerful Lord of the cosmos, his father was weeping, which did not come as a surprise to him, for he knew that even for someone so powerful, every man with a heart must weep.

He tugged at the Father’s hand and asked , “Father? Do I have any role to play here ?” the pause that followed brought the worst of his doubts to the surface of his mind ”You do Son , in fact, you will play the most important of all ” he replied as he held in his tears and ruffled the boy’s hair.
By the seventh day God finished what he had been doing and stopped working. He blessed the seventh day and set it apart as a special day, because by that day, he had completed his creation and stopped working.
And that is how the universe was created.
