Fragments of Spiritual Knowledge 56

In the beginning, there were no angels in the higher heavens. Indeed, no higher heavens existed. All had to be created, evolved and perfected.

The angels are merely spirit-lives that have completed their evolution and attained to perfection in the usual way, having traversed all the physical material kingdoms and species of life up to and including man, and having passed through all the spiritual zones this side of the higher heavens.

In the beginning, God alone existed. Of the source of his existence, he knew nothing, save that he came to consciousness out in the great silence of space. He at once conceived the idea of creating a universe out of the materials that were all about him—materials to us invisible.

God's original conception of a universe was very different from the universe that now exists because his idea grew as he continued to think upon it and to build it. Even yet the idea is not complete but is continuing to grow, evolve, and change.
