Adam and Eve: the human condition

GENESIS REVISITED - a new beginning The story of Adam and Eve may depict man's fall from the comfort of living in blameless ignorance, but it also describes his first - thanks to woman - courageous step on the long and difficult journey towards greater awareness (of himself, of others, and of the world at large) and responsibility, away from ignorance and the instinctive, blameless behaviour of his animal nature. It is high-time that we exchanged Yahweh for a more enlightened (concept of) God. Instead of cursing them, this is what my God (with more than 2000 years of hindsight  (When God Was a Woman (Harvest/HBJ Book) ) , after sending her unworthy husband away, might have said to Eve: Red Moon Curiosity and the desire for knowledge and awareness have led you to disobey me, but I like your courageous and independent spirit, which is in contrast to your obedient and wimp of a  husband.

It explores our highest purpose in life

It could have been Mabel, faith... So what now. Ok this is my body, my hand, my spine So what is it that claims this body, this face as "mine" My thought spiralled through aeons path threaded Choas and darkness, yet the answer returned to me void. Through passages, shapes, wave of colour,  meandering all around me, pathing ways, Consciousness taking flight to planes unknown, To regions without name or form. Just the sound of Omm, the vibrations of all forms  and worlds trying to take shape, to come to be Knowing that as soon as I thrust my consciousness  downward it will eventually solidify The I that claims this body of mine, my face, my soul . . .
