"God's creative energy is our parent"


What is the real meaning of "the inner nature of his parent"*?
God's creative energy is our parent:
the divine impulse is the kernel; the physical parenting is just the
O nut-like body, know that Love is your friend:
inspired by Love the soul will break away the shell
in search of the kernel.
