Manifesting

Cosmically, one of the great Divine Purposes is to manifest. One of the esoteric revelations given to Mohammad was, “I am a hidden treasure and I long to be known.” Manifestation for the One Essential Being to be known. God longs to be known, which is why there is manifestation, the creative unfoldment and revealing of God. Thus, manifestation has a Divine Purpose, and important in the purpose of manifestation to is progress, improve, evolve.

God the Divine Being manifests through life, through nature, through me and through others. We are the Divine manifesting. It's important to know the principles of manifestation, the principles of actualization, the principles of Divine Unfoldment. It's also important to know the Spiritual Qualities inherent in each of us, which are seeking to manifest.

Besides the cosmic meaning and purpose of manifestation, there is also a personal meaning and purpose of manifesting. Since each of us are manifesting purposes of God, we need to realize the spiritual goals seeking manifestation and work towards manifesting them. We each manifest through our own being and through our actions in the world.
