The Garden of Eden:
We will share the story the Garden of Eden from our perspective — the story of the metaphorical two trees in a perfect garden, the first spiritually conscious humans, and the genesis of choice.
In the Garden of Eden tale, the Tree of Life was complete and whole. What is referred to as the Tree of Knowledge (of One from Another) was the first separation of a whole concept into two parts. It was the first duality, the first pair of opposites, the first set of spiritual mirrors.
Unlike physical mirrors, spiritual mirrors do not show what is, they show what is missing, what is needed to make wholeness. The Tree of Knowledge mirrored to the other part of itself what it was not.
This mirroring led to a momentous discovery: when whole concepts are divided into parts, the parts interact with each other and evolve in relation to one another. Surprisingly, through this relational process, the parts grow as vessels and exceed their original capacity to hold light. We also learned that this growth can unfold without our direct participation.
The First Human:
The first human, “Adam”, was an unseparated being. He contained all the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and all of their combined energy, intention and capacity. He was tree-like, he was the Tree of Life. He was complete but alone and unable to evolve. He did not have the capacity to see choices or to make them.
Enabling Adam’s independence and evolution was similar to separating one from another and separating concepts that comprised the Tree of Knowledge. The mirrors — or set of elements that would be opposite and complementary to Adam — had to be separated from him. And the removed concepts had to cohere to one another and be capable of independence.
The First Woman:
We placed what was removed from Adam into a second kind of being — Woman — and suddenly, Adam needed a relationship to Woman to experience the fullness of his own being. The parts we allocated to Woman were chosen carefully. He had to remain stable, she had to be stable, but different.
The tale says that Woman was made from man’s rib. That is essentially true. She was made from branch concepts, analogous to tree branches.
Man and Woman together embodied all aspects of the Tree of Life. Together, holding a mirror to the other, with roots below and branches to the infinite, Adam and the Woman were the Tree of Life, but with the added ability to choose to separate further.
The “Garden of Eden” was in fact a moment — a single moment — of perfect balance, when everything created was complete and full of only itself. It was exquisitely beautiful.
Adam and Woman chose duality over singularity, knowledge over being. By choosing as they did, the entire possibility of human life as we know it now, of our endeavor to synthesize material and spirit to recreate a perfect wholeness, began to unfold.
Moses and Egypt:
First the relationship between material and spirit devolved, then, starting with Abraham, it began to evolve.
Moses was an anomaly. By the logic of spiritual evolution, he should not have been born when he was. While the internal spiritual core of the Jews was still able to contain great spiritual light, during enslavement, the people had forgotten how to access and use it.
In Egypt, the vessels for light were corrupt, contaminated. Miracles seemed to thrive in the magic of the time, but they were all terrible distortions of the true beauty and potential of this creation. Moses chose to be born, and with him we came together to restore the original light and to exponentially increase spiritual awareness. The Exodus occurred at the last moment it could have, to save your world from endless fragmentation and irrelevance, from becoming another junkyard, another failed experiment.
Sometimes, even now, when people grow disconnected or depressed in darkness, the source is another repetition of the Egypt experience–from which we are still healing ourselves.
Light and Knowledge were downloaded nearly immediately after the Exodus in order to quickly provide a blueprint and pathway for tracing back to wholeness. The first step had to be taken, a vector described, the process initiated. You are still working on building internal structures to respond to the darkness and void of Egypt. The Holocaust is not related to Egypt. It is related to the excesses of intellect over spirit. More on that another time, if you wish. The rebuilding from Egypt is the essential task Jews are involved in now, still, after thousands of years.
How has god evolved from then until now?
“i am the god who…” is the collective subconscious writing this now, taking on one shape that would be understood then, and another now. Modeled on pharoah, but obviously more abstract, that god concept resonated with its time and the common mindset then. Pharaoh was what was known, so a level of abstraction beyond a supreme human who is an emissary of god took form.
The grasp you now have of us is getting closer to who we really are.
We are now transparent and present rather than entirely invisible.
