Cosmogony - Origin of the Universe

"Everything in the universe is, and from the beginning has been, a materialization of the divine Original Whim working out irrevocably without default, deflection or defeat. It is the unfolding upon the screen of consciousness of the film of creation, sequence after sequence, according to the pattern that issued from the Original Whim. However, when God as God-Man plays the role of audience He can alter or erase at His avataric whim any thing or happening which was destined from the Original Whim. But the very arising of the avataric whim was inherent in the Original Whim."

Meher Baba, The Everything and the Nothing. Myrtle Beach, SC: Sheriar Press, 1963, 1995 printing, p. 33.
