D&C 88 pt. 2 -- measure of my creation

I read a lot about light, that I'm not ready to discuss yet. Still trying to figure out what I think about it, and how I'm going to say it.

A bit later in the section, it talks about the celestial law. The law you are able to abide (telestial, terrestrial, or celestial) determines which kingdom you will reside in. It also talks about the earth, and how it needs to be sanctified from all unrighteousness (US) so it can be prepared for the celestial glory.

I also like v. 25. "And again, verily I say unto you, the earth abideth the law of a celestial kingdom, for it filleth the measure of its vreation, and transgresseth not he law --"

It sounds as though part of abiding the celestial law is filling the measure of your creation.

What is the measure of my creation?

While procreation is definatately part (and one I'm thinking about a lot these days) I don't think that's all there is to it. I know that we all made promises (?covenants?) in the pre-mortal life, most likely things like marrying in the temple and raising a righteous posterity. Have you heard this? Anyone know a source? I don't have time to look right now.

But reading this made me want to go to the temple and ponder this question. What is the measure of my creation, and what specifically do I need to be doing to fill it?
