The Material Plane
10. “And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.”
We see that the dry land is called earth, and the gathering together of the waters is called the seas. The seas abound with life on many different levels, which ranging from crustaceans to mammals. Properly enough, every species within the seas and the oceans has a symbolic significance, just as every creature and every aspect of the earth, the dry land, has a symbolic significance to man.
The birds of the air are symbolic of our thoughts in the spiritual plane, and fish are symbolic of our spiritual thoughts immersed within the material.
Now, remember, the earth is symbolic of your thoughts, the fertility of your consciousness. The true fertility of your consciousness lies within the aspect of you that is connected to the God Force that dwells within, as well as without.
It is from that source that all of your creativity and true expression evolves. Yet like a seed planted in soil, it must be watered and cultivated and fed nutrients so it can grow and manifest above ground.
11. “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
One aspect of this verse is that the ego overshadows this process. So, as thoughts progress up through the ground, the ego contaminates the germination process of the thought, the true thought, the God thought. Therefore, that which ultimately manifests on the material plane is slightly corrupted. The goal is to ultimately do away with the ego so that thoughts germinated in the fertility of the God Self will ultimately bring forth a fruit that will bring balance and harmony on the material plane.
