As freewill beings and cocreators with God, we had minds with which to build, but we built thought forms and desire patterns which deviated from the Law of One.

This state is analogous to that of a person who, though he may have many concerns and responsibilities, walks into a movie for a moment of diversion and gets caught up in and identifies with the action on the screen. He may get so involved in the movie that it claims his entire awareness and he forgets who he is and what he was doing before he went in…..
