There are a lot of quotes from the different “Scriptures” that would be appropriate here, Y’shua’s comment about G-d’s love of the sparrow, so we know G-d cares for humans that are more important. Most people who doubt G-d’s caring would go, well, maybe. I want to look at this question from an “almost” logical stance.
Well, it’s only logical if you can believe we are all connected, truly connected, and that each of us carries the spark of life that comes from G-d. The scientists are in the midst of proving that statement, but, for many, it is still a major statement of faith. However, once the individual accepts the idea that each of us is a part of the “Whole”, the rest is fairly simple.
The sparrow above is one of my own drawings. I am an artist, so to speak, and I see this from that point of view. When I draw, the creative process is always using bits of who I am. This is only a 2 dimensional piece, just a little bird, but the shading and the lighter areas, the placement of the wing and eyes and bill and tail were all part of that process. And I am simply drawing from the Creator’s model! Now, to be fair, it seems that the Creator has been simply “improving” the models from the beginning, many millions of years ago, as there are signs that some of the dinosaurs are still with us in the forms of those birds we so love. Do you ever wonder if they have dreams about the days when they ruled the earth?
And, of course the creative process is somewhat different when one is modeling living creatures from the DNA of creatures that are their antecedents, but there are ways in which creativity is always creativity. You lay down a pattern and go to work. You put colors in, then perhaps not liking what you see, you take them out. You layer the colors, and plan the highlights where you place no color. You step back to look at your work just to make sure that the “whole” is pleasing to the eye. By the time you have finished with the “process” you are fond of this piece you have created, and think of it as more or less “one of your children”, but, like a good parent, you must let go and see if the “child” can live on it’s own, making it’s way in the world.
It is this process of letting go that is so difficult to understand from the point of view of the created. We stand there feeling alone and abandoned in a sea of other “works”, wondering what we are supposed to do, or if we are supposed to do anything. There is worry, and sadness and pain and gain, and hard work and worry; until, one day, we fly, we make it on our own in our chosen field. It is then we know we are where we belong, doing what we were supposed to do. Sadly, for humans, there is an ego involved, and it is only when we don’t manage those final stages that we find room in our hearts for the Creator that started this process to begin with.
Just because we do not remember the process by which we came into being and therefore do not bother with the Creator, does not mean the Creator does not remember us.
