Note: The Lama Sing group often comments to discussions Al and Susan have with one another or with others. This message was volunteered Jan 28, ’14 and follows a recent discussion at a meeting in which the question was raised as to why Al and Susan use the term “Father” so often when referring to God, Creator, Source.
Lama Sing: What shall you be called? Shall you be called Human? Woman? Man? Child of God? Child of the Creator? Creation of the Consciousness of Life, itself? An evolutionary position? What? Perhaps, by your given name in the present? Any of these and many more might be the truth for you.
Would you not think it to be so, as well, for the Father? That each of His Children might, from their uniqueness, see their Creator, their God, their Father, their Source, their Oneness, the Well-Spring of Life?
What you choose to speak when you reach out with hope, when you call out in despair, when you strive to give love, when you wish to express gratitude… Would it not be known that thy Creator knoweth this before it can be spoken? Thus, has it magnitude what name might be applied?
It does have magnitude. It is very important for that one who knoweth their Creator in a state of intimacy and love that has always been theirs. Then, that name which they use is sacred.
And, if you hear it spoken by a brother or a sister, honor it in the same manner as do they.
