For most, we want a quick sentence to wrap complexity up; unfortunately, its not that easy. The theory is explained in Plato’s 1800 pages of complex writings. I was taught by Jesus Christ, I found myself at the beginning of eternity. It was God who let me take a peak inside my mind, so that I could understand my own intelligence, but before that, God gave me some essential ancient writings. Why don’t I start where God started with me? That seems logical, wouldn’t you think?
The Garden of Eden
…10 He said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” 11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”
The term “who told you” is in question. Why would Adam have to be “told” he was naked? And, if he had to be told he was naked, then who told him he was naked? Was it Eve? Or was the Who part of his very own system of thoughts?
The term “tree” is also in question. Is a tree linked to a branch of neurons that supply a person with thoughts?
The term “eaten” is also in question. Was it an actual fruit from a tree, or was it a thought that Adam had accepted as truth into his soul? Is it possible that the acceptance of an immoral thought could kill us? If so, is it possible that the acceptance of a moral thought can keep us alive? Like the tree of life? Food for thought? Let me rephrase, put this into something relevant and contemporary, “is it possible for a thought to cause a human to kill oneself?”
When we work through the theory, you will not be running from death, but rather, you will be learning to turn and face it, and then say “No” to it. No drugs, and no pain killers; this is all you. My goal is to help you experience your pain and not be afraid of it anymore. I want to teach you to understand your pain, and realize that the pain that you feel is not bad, but rather it is an extension of your love. Your love reaches far into two beautiful worlds, it has the power to break you and drop you to your knees. Can hate do that? And…every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess … Does any of this sound like it may be true? If God is love then is it possible that we have found one of God’s secret hiding places?
Think…remember what your emotional pain feels like, what exactly is that pain? Could it be love?
Now that I have you thinking, move into the Socratic doctrine and start putting the puzzle together.
