“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:1-4)
“Word” means intelligent vibration, intelligent energy, going forth from God…“The Word was with God, and the Word was God”: Before creation, there is only undifferentiated Spirit. In manifesting creation, Spirit becomes God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost…
The vibratory force emanating from Spirit, endowed with the illusory creative power of maya, is the Holy Ghost: Cosmic Vibration, the Word, Aum (Om) or Amen. All things, all created planets and living beings in the Holy Ghost, or Holy Vibration, are nothing but the frozen imagination of God. This Holy Ghost in the Hindu scriptures is called the Aum or Maha-Prakriti (Great Nature, the COSMIC MOTHER that gives birth to all creation… The holy Cosmic Sound of Aum or Amen is the witness of the manifested Divine Presence in all creation.
Just as the husband is born again in the wife as the son, so the transcendental God the Father manifested in the Holy Ghost, THE COSMIC VIRGIN MARY (the Virgin Creation), became the sole reflected intelligence of God, the only begotten Son, or Christ Consciousness.
Thus, metaphorically, as soon as the cosmic bachelor Spirit stirs Itself to create the universe, He becomes the husband, God the Father, wedded to Cosmic Virgin Mary or Cosmic Vibration, giving birth to His reflection, the only begotten Son.

More than in any other relationship, we may rightfully and naturally demand a reply from Spirit in Its aspect as the DIVINE MOTHER. God is constrained to answer such an appeal; for the essence of a mother is love and forgiveness, no matter how great a sinner her child may be. It is the closest and most beautiful of all the relationships that the Lord has given us.
