I am very fond of the story of Adam and Eve. It is the foundation for the entire story humanity has co-created together for the last several thousand years. The choice to forget entirely who we are, what our essential truth is, and to experience separation from our true nature. I do suspect, however, that either the story itself or how it is traditionally interpreted, have likely been changed since its inception. The imagery and symbolism of the snake as the temptress and the woman (Eve) as the instigator of temptation to her male companion don’t ring true to me.
There is much evidence that the snake is a representation of the Divine Feminine, which has been excised from our cultural and religious history for the last 2000 plus years.
Why would the Divine Feminine or its representative want the humans dwelling in perfect intuitive harmony with Gaia or Mother Nature to separate from this permanent state of bliss?
And why would the Divine Feminine choose a female human as a subject to confuse or lead astray from divine harmony?
It is clear that the Tree of Life represents 5th dimensional existence, the Peaceable Kingdom, or Paradise on Earth, where humans, plants, animals, and the consciousness of the planet and the one Source Creator of all that is are all in full alignment and harmony.
Why would the Tree of Knowledge, which represents separation from a harmonious, ascended 5th dimensional state even exist within the Garden of Eden, or paradise on Earth?
I believe that the presence of the Tree of Knowledge in Eden clearly signifies that Earth is a Free Will planet. We always have the choice to remain connected to our inner, intuitive knowing, which is true empowerment and mastery…or to separate from that inner connection and lifeline to our multidimensional parallel existences on other planes. When we accept separation or victim consciousness, we forget our divine identity. Our mind, brain, and knowledge gleaned from outside sources become our accepted center of consciousness rather than our heart and intuition as our unique source of information and guidance.
Humanity’s choice: Ease and flow or hardship and ego-driven struggle?
Perhaps, since the choice between a life of ease and flow (eating the fruit of the Tree of Life) and a life of hardship and ego-driven struggle (eating from the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge) was designed as an integral part of the life on Earth, humanity had to experience separation from our true divine nature, mastery, conscious creation, and flow in order to truly understand and appreciate a return to unity and our true divine nature.
There are those that say that the snake is a representation of Satan or perhaps a reptilian extra-terrestrial being. That humanity was driven out of Eden or our natural state of flow and mastery by a series of DNA modifications and reduced to slavery by a group of powerful beings not aligned with the one divine consciousness and Source Creator. All of these conjectures are possibilities and could be true. There are many ancient works of art, in particular from the Sumerian/Akadian culture that seem to represent such beings and such technology. And the many paintings and visual interpretations of the story of Adam and Eve portray the serpent wound around the tree, evocative of the DNA double helix.
But if we are indeed a free will planet, then if humanity was tempted or even subjugated by force and did fall into a lower state of consciousness, no one could force this to happen. Even if a person enters an abusive relationship with another person, that person is still responsible for that state of affairs. Temptation is a choice, and the consequences were what we all know and experience today.
We also know today that there are cosmic cycles that govern our planetary and human experiences. Cycles that lead to different ages with different levels of consciousness. Ancient peoples from various cultures around the world were aware of these cycles. In fact, the Mayan people, who in the Alcyone spiral, originated from a star (Maya) that is mostly within the photon band, were fully aware that Earth spends most of its cosmic cycles within the galactic night, outside of the photon band. Currently, we are within the center of the Alcyone spiral, which puts us in the center of the photon band. These energetic frequencies propel the awakening and upliftment of consciousness. When we are within the galactic night, it is very difficult to awaken and to remember our original, divine nature. For more information about this, please read “The Pleiadian Agenda: A New Cosmology for the Age of Light”, written by Barbara Hand Clow, published by Bear & Co., 1995.
We have all chosen to incarnate here on Earth at the end of one grand 26,000 plus year cycle and at the beginning of a new one. This does not come without turmoil, trial, and tribulation. The end of something old and the beginning of something new requires letting go, deconstruction, breakdown, rebuilding. We are now at the end of a very dark age, as as humanity awakens with the help of the presence of many thousands of starseeds now incarnated here on Earth, we are experiencing the grand deconstruction of the thousands of years long Age of Separation.
It is an exciting time to be alive and to be in a “physical” body! We each now have the opportunity to choose where we stand on the spectrum of awakening and ascension. As we awaken, we remember our true divine nature as fractals of the one divine unified consciousness, as expanding light, in form, and as co-creators of experiences. As we return to unity consciousness, we metaphorically “spit out” the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. The density and frequency of that “food” no longer nourishes us. We crave once again the fruit of the Tree of Life, which allows us to be in constant flow, in the zero point of a divine unified field of creation.
From hardship, survival, victim consciousness we are finally returning to mastery, unity, and peace on Earth. We each have to make the choice to live in the higher dimensions, and it is our level of consciousness that will continue to determine how we experience the next years as at least part of humanity transitions out of density and into unity.
