THE FIRST ADVENT OF GOD AS LOVE PERSONIFIED
Owing to the creative power of Love that resides in every form, each drop consciously and unconsciously longed to experience its true being as the formless Ocean of Love. In its sojourn of seeming separateness, the drop, in spite of assuming innumerable forms and continually renewing its efforts, was unable to feel Love in its boundless glory. This created a feeling of deep helplessness in all the forms of Creation. So the Creation earnestly invoked Love for greater help, greater release, and deeper awakening.
Lo and behold in response to this collective yearning of Creation to experience profound levels of Love, infinite formless Love appeared in human form, moving in Creation and living amongst humanity as Man amongst men. This descent of infinite Love into finite human form is the first Advent of God as Love Personified, known as the Ancient One the Avatar.
