Metaphysical meaning of idea (mbd)
Meta. An idea is the mode of expression of the mind. Ideas may be thought of as offspring or children of the mind. Since all minds are part of the one Divine Mind, ideas are children of God.
God expresses Himself through ideas. Ideas, timeless and spaceless agents of the divine will, mold and form all outer manifestation.
It is through ideas that we know God. They might be thought of as a kind of bridge by which we can unite ourselves with Him, or as divine messengers sent from Him to us to inform us of His nature and of the nature of the world.
The world is God's idea. The creation of God was in the form of ideas. It was ideal. Man works with divine ideas to mold and shape the substance of God.
