900.11c Multiple Levels of the Divine
Thus man must seek his potential; potential demands freedom; intellectual attainment demands greater freedom; freedom demands greater privacy and independence; greater privacy and independence demand Divine contraction. Potentially God’s consciousness is present throughout real-time and outof-time. However, in the greater cosmic interest, the potentially infinite real-time consciousness of the Deity is contracted.
Over time, God manifests and contracts His various potentialities to different degrees, to different ends, in different dimensions-all beyond mortal comprehension or perception, in spite of the fact that the general principle is within our comprehension.
“And [if] they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” and the reply came to him, EHEYEH-ASHER-EHEYEH [I-WILL-BE-THAT-WHICH-I-WILL-BE].
