Examples of creation in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    In Hinduism, there is a concept of "Trimurti", or the Great Trinity or the Supreme Power, which embodies the cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction. These three cosmic functions are personified, in the Hinduism, by the forms of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer of evil. In my view, the word God also signifies, in it's three letters, these three cosmic functions of the Great Trinity from Hinduism, i.e. Generation, Organization and Destruction. I find it interesting that the concept of Great Trinity from ancient Eastern culture has been the basis for many faiths in the Western culture. It's amazing!

  3. H.W. Mann:

    Love is all around us. The road of love leads to heaven. Many spiritual leaders speak of this state of consciousness. This is how heaven on earth will be created. Through a conscious state called love. By protection and nurturing of all creation. It is unconditional. It does not depend on how someone or something makes us feel. It is far beyond emotion. It is of the spirit. It comes from spiritual awareness. It comes from the understanding that all creation is an expression of God. That we are a part of it. And that we are the ones who will create heaven on earth. Love is the most powerful force in the universe.

    I’ve gotten lots of feedback from a lot of people. I do n’t know specific organizations or anything like that – just a constant flow of people saying ‘ I appreciate it, ’ i ’m making a public record in a way.
