From experience we walk hand in hand ~ the lover and beloved.
Glory be to GOD
Is the created the same as the Creator? Are we One with God? No and Yes, I think. Do we worship ourselves or God? Glory be to God.
If God is not the Almighty, the Father, the Prince of Peace, our Lord, in Whom can we hope? Yes, we are beautiful creatures made in His image, but as Q says we are for the most part broken. If no One is above us how can we rise up?
There is healing in this world and is is abundant but it all flows from The One Who is above us, from Whom all we have is borrowed.
You are flying on wings and saying to the rest "See you have wings! You should fly too!" But the danger of course is flying too close to the sun and being burned up or falling because we are not ready to fledge. These are real spiritual dangers, I think. And I think it is easy to fly and think you are doing just fine and not even realize your wings are melting.
Is it better to go slow, take the ladder God provided? I can only say so for myself. At least at this pace I can take in the scenery as I go .
