It’s A Mythic Universe We Live In

This is from today’s First Reading:

God created man in his image;
in the divine image he created him;
male and female he created them.

God blessed them, saying:
“Be fertile and multiply;
fill the earth and subdue it.
Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air,
and all the living things that move on the earth.”
God also said:
“See, I give you every seed-bearing plant all over the earth
and every tree that has seed-bearing fruit on it to be your food;
and to all the animals of the land, all the birds of the air,
and all the living creatures that crawl on the ground,
I give all the green plants for food.”
And so it happened.
God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good.
Evening came, and morning followed–the sixth day.

Thus the heavens and the earth and all their array were completed.
Since on the seventh day God was finished with the work he had been doing,
he rested on the seventh day from all the work he had undertaken.
So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy,
because on it he rested from all the work he had done in creation.

The beautiful story of creation.
This is pure myth but it is nothing but the truth.

Science today would have me believe that I am the product of random chance;
that I happened purely by accident, the end result of a long series of evolution.
Myth has it that I was created purposefully and mindfully by a loving Creator;
and that He fashioned me in His image and likeness.
Imperfect though I may be, I reflect all the goodness and beauty whence I come from.

It is a beautiful world I live in, again a glimpse of the beauty from the Creator.
I was given stewardship of this Paradise to care for and fructify.
But I have been wantonly abusing and destroying it.
The Creator spent six days preparing for it
And at the end of it all, He placed me in charge of this beautiful Paradise.

Oh, sometimes, I despair that I have been and still as so vile and wicked
I lose sight of the goodness and the beauty from whence I came from.
I need to be constantly reminded that:
God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good.

And after this tiresome work of Creation, God ‘rested’.
Thus the heavens and the earth and all their array were completed.
Since on the seventh day God was finished with the work he had been doing,
he rested on the seventh day from all the work he had undertaken.
So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy,
because on it he rested from all the work he had done in creation.

If this be nothing but myth, then I am dying to finally be born into this mythic reality
the seeds of which were carefully and lovingly implanted in me by the Creator.
