Dear Teacher,

"All manifest creatures suffer, life itself is suffering, life as we know it."
"God is love. God creates; love creates. So anything related with creation relates to the force of love."

I do understand, that life is suffering; the constant desire, craving, aversion, conflict, dualism of mind -- this, I understand.

What I don't understand is, how come the act of creation, which will lead to each creation going through suffering for millions lifetime, is said to be an act of love? Many times, after reading some of other lectures, I got the impression that, creating was more like an act of curiosity with suffering as incidental side effect, rather than an act of love.

Kindly enlighten. Thanks.

Life was not suffering before the fall of humanity. This is explained well in the Biblical Genesis. But since we abandoned what was best, we entered the path of suffering. Now we must transform our sufferings through the path of the creator, the way of the Bodhisattva of universal compassion, which was well explained by Friedrich Nietzsche in his golden esoteric book, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The following excerpt is from "The Way of the Creator."
Lonely one (hermit and meditator of the Ninth Arcanum of the Gnostic, Initiatic Tarot), you are going the way to yourself (your Intimate Christ, the Superman). And your way leads past yourself and your seven devils (for you are legion). You will be a heretic to yourself and a witch and soothsayer and fool and doubter and unholy one and a villain. You must wish to consume yourself in your own (transmuted, sexual) flame (through the mysteries of the Ninth Sphere: Sexual Magic): how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes (through the Buddhist Annihilation)!

Lonely one, you are going the way of the creator (the path of the Superman): you would create a god for yourself out of your seven devils (through Arcanum 15: Passion, the mystery of the alchemical purification of the ego into the golden vehicles of the spirit).

Lonely one, you are going the way of the lover (Arcanum 6: Indecision): yourself you love (your Innermost Buddha), and therefore you despise yourself (as animal desire) as only lovers (in White Tantra) despise. The lover would create (the solar bodies and incarnate Christ) because he despises (his animal defects). What does he know of (chaste) love who did not have to despise precisely what he loved (before through fornication)!

Go into your loneliness (meditation) with your love (Gedulah) and with your creation (solar bodies), my brother; and only much later will justice limp after you.

With my tears go into your loneliness, my brother. I love him who wants to create over and beyond himself (through alchemy) and thus perishes (decapitated through mystical death).

Thus spoke Zarathustra.
In synthesis, life is suffering. The path of the Superman takes one out of suffering. The universe was formed out of love, but we have defiled it. Therefore, to become as Siegfried (the Christ, "He who is joyful in victory") we must walk the Way of the Creator, to create out of pure, chaste love, so as to have the joy of dying in our abominations, and the happiness of incarnating the Christ!

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
