"It has been taught us from the primal state, that that which is, was wished until it were." (William Shakespeare)
God started with a wish, saying; "Let us make man in our image." And we are told that we will be perfect as our father is perfect, and holy as our father is holy. Therefore, whatever God was, when his work is completed, man must be. We are told to be imitators of God as dear children, so we must discover how he became us in order to imitate him. It seems God lives as one possessed by a dream. Jeremiah tells us: "The will of the lord will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished the intents of his mind. In the latter days you will understand it perfectly." God, refusing to turn back, remains lost in his dream until he has executed and accomplished the intents of his mind.
