The Apple is Delicious!

I was raised in a Catholic house.  Not a go to church every Sunday, but a hear the stories, let’s talk about them Catholic upbringing.  You where taught to follow the ten commandments, and provided you were a “good” person you would go to heaven.  Kill, or steal and you’d be hanging downstairs being tortured by a man in the red suit. 

I love the story of Adam and Eve.  I’ve read so many variations of what the metaphoric “garden, snake & apple where. Sorry if I offend anyone just change the screen or call me a witch and picture me and Lucifer having a bottle of Merlot.  After all he was once an angle too that disobeyed the big guy.   

This is just a paraphrased version of the story.  God created a beautiful garden, full of exotic animals, and trees.  In it he created and placed man and from him Eve.  Here they could frolic, breath fresh air, eat organic sweet food from the earth that would nourish their bodes!  However right in the middle of Eden, this amazing garden, he placed an apple tree with a snake.  God told the two they could eat from any tree, except that particular one.  He gave Adam and Eve free will, and at the same time took it away.   One day Eve could no longer resist the temptation of the tree and she got close enough to have a conversation with the snake.  Yes she listened to it, she took a big bite and decided the apple was too good not to share with Adam.  Adam, who after what appeared to be a relatively short conversation, he too ate the forbidden fruit.  God returned and expressed his disappointment.  Eve owned up to her “mistake”.  When God asked Adam he turned and pointed and said “she told me too.”  They were tossed from Eden and guards where placed at the gates preventing them from returning.  Humility caused them to cover their sexual organs.   Leading many to believe that the forbidden fruit was sex.

 Here is my combined interpretation of many, many readings.  God created a beautiful garden, full of exotic animals, and trees.  In it he created and placed man (masculine energy) and from him Eve (feminine energy).  Two opposites, yet one is not whole without the other.  After all one was created from the other.  Together they bring balance to each other (Yang & Yin).  In the garden they could frolic, breath fresh air, eat organic sweet food from the earth that would nourish their body.  Their physical body!  However right in the middle of Eden, this amazing garden, he placed an apple tree with a snake.  God told the two they could eat from any tree, except that particular one.  He gave Adam and Eve free will, and at the same time took it away feeding their spiritual body (six sense/third eye/intuition).   One day Eve could no longer resist the temptation of the tree and she got close enough to have a conversation with the snake.  In many Eastern traditions and medicine the snake represents the kundalini.  Our consciousness that resides at the base of the spine.  Coiled sleeping within our root (chakra) the energetic centre directly connecting us to the physical world. There is also belief that this is where our soul resided, the “son” in the religious content.  Yes she listened to the snake,  she practised free will, and the kundalini rose up.  She took a big bite and decided the apple was too good not to share with Adam.  Adam, who after what appeared to be a relatively short conversation, he too ate the forbidden fruit.  God returned and expressed his disappointment.  Eve owned up to her “mistake”.  When God asked Adam he turned and pointed and said “she told me too.”  This story isn’t about male verses female.  It’s not about God giving orders and humans disobeying.  It’s not about the evils of sex.   They were tossed from Eden and guards where placed at the gates preventing them from returning.  

Adam and Eve where kicked out of paradise because they where no longer whole.  Eve owed her choice.  Adam denied responsibility because he on his own felt he was perfect.  The guards at the gate where placed there to remind humans of where they came from, but that we can’t go back (in time).  The leaves cover their differences, a symbol of humility.   When there is a disconnect between or physical and spiritual body, humility creates a play field for our mental body.  We can not see the effects of our mental body.  But pain is real.  I once heard that the only thing that can break without making a sound is  the heart.  That is because there is not sound that can be created to reflect the amount of pain the heart makes when it breaks.  The heart is the bridge linking the physical world and the spiritual (energetic) world.  We may not be able to go back to Eden, but we can come go back to being one, whole.  Creating our new garden.  

There are three kinds of people.  

1. people who are scared.  I respect your fear, stay safe.  I love you and don’t want you to leave this planet. 

2. people who are more scared of what will happen if they speak up then the virus itself.  I actually had a friend who thinks that those who speak up will be the first rounded up and placed in these mystery camps.  I respect your fear, stay safe.  I love you and don’t want you to leave this planet. 

3. people we believe and practice free will.  We are ready to act in our best interest, and in the interest of who we love.  We are also ready to take on the burden of not listening to the voice that says don’t eat that apple. 

I’ve tasted the apple and it was delicious!  I own my choice and do encourage my brothers and sisters to take a big bite too. Because … well … I respect your choice as well, stay safe.  I love you and I look forward to having company when Im exiled from this current garden.
