The Hidden Meaning of the Fall of Adam and Eve

As I was thinking about The Fall of Adam and Eve while in an altered state of consciousness, I realized that it symbolized the rise of the ego and the loss of a higher state of consciousness. I then researched if my interpretation was right, and I was surprised that many bloggers support it.

For instance, Bryce Haymond writes, ‘I think the nature of the development of the ego-self in our consciousness is what is being symbolized in the story of Adam and Eve.’ Besides Haymond, Joshua Tilghman writes ‘as the story goes, Eve is tempted by the serpent (EGO), and because the ego took over the driver’s seat of man’s soul, Paradise lost became man’s reality.’

I firmly believe ancient people dwelled in a higher state of consciousness because their minds were uncorrupted: this state of consciousness freed them from suffering and enabled them to directly commune with the God (This is why the Quran, Bible, and the Ancient African Religions claimed some people communicated directly with God). Human beings then descended into the egoic-consciousness, which led to suffering.

The Fall of Adam and Eve symbolized this descent. Before eating the fruit, Adam and Eve lived in God’s heavenly garden and directly communicated with ‘Him.’ However, after eating the fruit, the egoic-consciousness developed within them, and God chased them from his garden and told them that they will suffer.

The ancients used this story to inform us how identifying with the ego will separate us from Infinite Intelligence/God hence leading to suffering.

Therefore, the modern society is suffering because of the over-identification with the ego, which has separated us from Infinite Intelligence by preventing us from living a spiritual life. This over-identification has resulted in self-centeredness and an exaggerated sense of arrogance. It has also led to high levels of envy, hatred, competition, greed, anxiety, and fear. Also, it has made people kill without caring, destroy nature, and avoid helping the poor.

The ego has thus led to our descent into a lower state of consciousness that prevents us from directly communicating with, and experiencing Infinite Intelligence. This state of consciousness has killed our creativity, intuition, and our ability to experience happiness. Moreover, it has led to the obsession with material stuff, which causes high levels of depression and anxiety.

All the effects of the ego have led to suffering.

The society will stop suffering if we go back to the heavenly Garden of Eden by transcending the egotistic consciousness. This transcendence will eliminate suffering because it will allow Infinite Intelligence to express its Infinite Power, Intelligence, and Greatness through us.

    Couldn’t have been put to better words than this …ego is one ofothe major root cause of all our problems and not unless we shun it and surrender to the power above,we will never enjoy the abundance and the fullness of life that God offers to us.

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Biblical God, ‘was a God of wrath and vengeance sitting over the world. This God demanded an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and only the blind unquestioning, and complete obedience of his creation satisfied this universal autocrat.’ – Manly P. Hall: The Wisdom of the Knowing Ones.

Born in a Christian family, I loved reading the Bible and watching Biblical films – that my mum bought– because I wanted to understand how God works. My interest in the Christian God resulted in me earning an A in Christian Religious Education (CRE), a subject that claimed to expose God’s revelations.

However, I started doubting the Christian God after studying ancient spiritual philosophy and embracing deep thinking. I realized that whatever created the world is a mysterious, impersonal, unknowable force, and therefore, the knowable Christian God was created by the religious leaders of the Christian age.

These leaders believed God behaved like man, and thus created an egotistical God (If you’ve read the Bible, I believe you’ve noticed how the Christian God possesses egoic behavior).

This God forces people to worship him and becomes angry when people worship other gods.

For instance, in Exodus 20, he becomes mad when the Israelites bow down to an idol, for he tells Moses, ‘I have seen these people, and they are stiff-necked people. Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them.’ Besides this, he promises to throw those who don’t obey him in eternal fire.

He also refers to those who worship him as ‘his chosen ones’, and orders the killing of anyone who attacks these folks. For instance, he orders Saul to eradicate Amalek, an enemy of Israel. According to Samuel 15, he says, ‘Go now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and assess.’

Besides being egotistical, another problem I noticed, is that the Christian God lives far away from the earth. He dwells in heaven while we dwell on the earth. This concept of God is responsible for the belief that God is separate from man. It has made people believe they are servants of God, rather than part of him.

Many Christians will be offended by this post, but I don’t care because I’m writing the TRUTH, which will eventually set us free. My Christian readers must know that their concept of God is man-made, and it was created by egoic men who claimed to be spiritual.

The true God, our Creator, is unknowable as Hermes Trismegistus, the wisest man ever, claimed, ‘God is Spirit, which in itself is unknowable and undefinable, but which may be considered and thought of us an Infinite Mind.

No one, including ancient spiritual masters, could define God, and no one will ever know where he came from, what he is, and how he created us. We might only know his principles by studying nature, but we’ll never know he’s personality because we have limited minds. However, we might fully know him when we die because after death, our souls might dissolve into his consciousness.

Is There an Afterlife?

Is There an Afterlife?

I’ve always doubted the idea of an afterlife because I compared death to sleep. However, my beliefs about the afterlife changed after studying ancient cultures and modern religion.

I realized that most ancient cultures, for instance, the Africans, Arabians, and Greeks, believed in an afterlife despite living far apart.

The Greeks believed the soul survived death and went to Hades. Moreover, they believed good Greeks enjoyed life after death while evil Greeks were tormented.’ Also, all African cultures believed their ancestors’ spirits survived death, and they regularly poured libation to them. Some African cultures even performed burial ceremonies and rituals that ensured their beloved ones traveled safely to the spirit world.

Besides ancient cultures, modern religions believe in life after death. For instance, both Muslims and Christians believe we survive death, and our current actions determine our experience after death.  As well, Buddhists believe in the afterlife because death only leads to the end of the body, but not the spirit. They believe that an individual can be reborn after death.

With that in mind, can it be possible that an afterlife doesn’t exist considering that ancient cultures living far away from each other believed in life after death? Did religions and ancient cultures make up the idea of life after death?

I believe the intuitive abilities of ancient/deeply religious folks allowed them to realize the existence of an afterlife, and I support them because I recently discovered that we have a spirit-self besides our egoic and physical self. I think death only eradicates the physical and egoic-self but fails to eliminate the spirit-self.

Also, the fact that we are energy beings forces me to support the idea of an afterlife because as Einstein said, ‘Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.’ Maybe we survive death because it only alters our form by turning us into pure spiritual entities without a body.

Furthermore, my belief in the spirit world forces me to support life after death because this world allows souls to experience life without a human body.

Anyway, we’ll never know if an afterlife truly exists. But we must strive to live life to the fullest because, if life after death exists, we might regret failing to live up to our full potential. Maybe our eyes will open when we die, and we’ll realize that we stressed over trivial things instead of enjoying life in a magical and blessed world.

Peace Be With You
