THE FALL AND RISE OF MAN

GENESIS 3:1-8

 

NOW THE SERPENT (MIND) WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY BEAST OF THE FIELD, WHICH THE LORD GOD HAD MADE. AND HE SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, YEA HATH GOD SAID, "YE SHALL NOT EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN." AND THE WOMAN SAID UNTO THE SERPENT, "WE MAY EAT OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREES OF THE GARDE." BUT OF THE FRUIT OF THE TREE WHICH IS IN THE MIDST OF THE GARDEN, GOD HATH SAID, "YE SHALL NOT EAT OF IT, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT; LEST YE DIE." AND THE SERPENT (MIND) SAID UNTO THE WOMAN, "YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE. FOR GOD DOTH KNOW THAT IN THE DAY YE EAT THEREOF, THEN YOUR EYES SHALL BE OPENED AND YE SHALL BE AS gods, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL." AND WHEN THE WOMAN SAW THAT THE TREE WAS GOOD FOR FOOD, AND THAT IT WAS PLEASANT TO THE EYES, AND A TREE TO BE DESIRED TO MAKE ONE WISE, SHE TOOK THE FRUIT THEREOF, AND DID EAT. AND GAVE ALSO UNTO HER HUSBAND WITH HER. AND HE DID EAT.  AND THE EYES OF THEM BOTH WERE OPENED AND THEY KNEW THAT THEY WERE NAKED. AND THEY SEWED FIG LEAVES TOGETHER AND MADE THEMSELVES APRONS. AND THEY HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD GOD WALKING IN THE GARDEN IN THE COOL OF THE DAY. AND ADAM AND HIS WIFE HID THEMSELVES FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD GOD AMONG THE TREES OF THE GARDEN.

 

WHEN ADAM AND EVE DISOBEYED GOD THE EGO WAS CREATED (I, Me and My.) AND WITH THE CREATION OF THE EGO CAME ALL HUMAN SUFFERING AND SORROW. ALSO WITH THE CREATION OF THE EGO CAME THINKING, WHICH OFTEN TAKES US AWAY FROM GOD. IF WE ARE NOT CAREFUL. 

 

BEFORE, THE FALL OF MAN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, THERE WAS NO SUFFERING OR SORROW BECAUSE HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS HAD NO CONCEPT OF I, ME OR MY. LIKEWISE, IF WE WOULD BRING OUR CONSCIOUSNESS TO THIS VERY MOMENT, THE HERE AND NOW, WE TOO CAN EXPERIENCE THE SAME HIGH STATE OF DIVINE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT ADAM AND EVE ENJOYED BEFORE THEIR FALL FROM GOD. THEREFORE THE RISE OF HUMANITY CAN ONLY COME ABOUT WITH THE REALIZATION THAT THIS I, ME AND MY CONCEPT IS NOT WHO OR WHAT WE ARE. IN FACT, THE MOMENT WE EMBRACED OUR EGO AS OURSELVES, WE FELL FROM OUR GODLY STATION.  BEFORE WE BECAME EGO DOMINATED BEINGS IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, OUR ANCIENT ANCESTORS LIVED TOTALLY IN THE HERE AND NOW WHERE THERE IS ONLY PEACE AND CONTENTMENT.

 

ADAM AND EVE DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SUFFERING OR SORROW. THEREFORE, THE FALL OF MAN BEGAN WITH THE CREATION OF HIS EGO AND THE RISE OF MAN CAN ONLY BEGIN WHEN HE REALIZES HE MUST GET RID OF THIS EGO DOMINATED CONSCIOUSNESS. THIS EGO IS CONSTANTLY AT WAR WITH GOD AND IS THE MOST NEGATIVE FORCE IN EXISTENCE. AND YET, WE EMBRACE THIS NEGATIVE FORCE AS THE BIGGER PART OF OURSELVES. FINALLY, THE FALL OF MAN BEGAN WITH THE CREATION OF THE EGO AND THE RISE OF MAN CAN ONLY BEGIN WHEN HE FREES HIMSELF FROM THIS EGO.

 

REVELATION 21:4

 

AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY ALL TEARS FROM THEIR EYES; AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH, NEITHER SORROW, NOR CRYING. NEITHER SHALL THERE BE ANYMORE PAIN, FOR THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.
