A child: "Father, what was the beginning?"

The Father: "Son, it was love for Christ!"

This is the end.

How is it that a mystery is revealed in this? How is it that God knows? How is that it is enough, as time onward slowly goes?

A child: "Father, how did love for Christ start?"

The Father: "Son, I looked at Him with love and He was light. That is enough."

That is enough.

How is it that this reveals more? How is that it says "God loves"? How is it that the Father keeps His time with which to enjoy the above?

A child: "Father, where was the light in the beginning?"

The Father: "Son, the light was in me, I was the Son. Now run along, you want to play!"

That is play.

How is it that there's fun in this? How is it that God says "light's His"?
How shall a child keep His way?

A child: "How shall a child keep His way?"

A child in the Father: "How shall a child keep His way?"

These are the same!

How is it that you do not know? How is it that you cannot tell TIME HAS PASSED? How indeed does the child with Father as One... answer... that question... at last!

I was a little confused (of course I'm normally in that state), but you posed some very interesting questions!

Had trouble deciding what was going on it but I think it has potential

Some very deep, philosophical probes going on in this little essay. Some answeres are revealed others wait revelation; and indeed aren't we all as children at times in asking.
