Adam And Eve

Rays Of Wisdom - The Universal Christ Now Speaks To Us And Our World - Adam And Eve

From the earliest days of its descent into matter, humankind has asked questions like: ‘Who am I? Where do I come from and where am I going to? And how did we all come into being?’ You have a right to search into these things, in fact you are meant to do this and you are entitled to find out the truth, as much of it as any given time your race can digest and cope with. For a very long time you had to make do with allegories about a great many things, including the one about the first human beings. But, as by now sufficient numbers of you have grown into spiritual maturity to be able to grasp more of the full truth, the time has come for revealing to you that the tale of Adam  and Eve is but a metaphor. It stands for the fact that the inner invisible part of every man is woman and that of every woman is man.

About the first human beings in the book of Genesis of the Abrahamic religions I told you in 2:26: ‘Then God said: ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over the cattle and over all the wild beasts of the Earth and over every creeping one that creeps on the Earth.’ So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created them. Male and female He created them.’ In Genesis 3:18 and 21-23 My teaching continued with: ‘Then the Lord God said: ‘It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helper who is like him.’ … So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept. And he took one of his ribs and closed up the place with flesh in its stead. And from the rib the Lord God had taken from Adam He made a woman and brought her to Adam. And Adam said: ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.’ This involves a play on words – wo-man is contained in man – works in the English language, but none of the others.

I am the Father of the whole of Creation. My spirit is the masculine aspect of the Divine, known in your world as God, Fire and Air, creative ideas and the thought processes and intellect to communicate them to My feminine counterpart, the Goddess. She is the Mother and the soul of the whole of Creation. The elements Earth and Water represent My soft sensitive feeling side through whom I express My idea and bring them into manifestation in your world and all others. Created in My image, all these things are also in you.

The story of Adam and Eve has provided a large part of your world with an allegory of the creation of the first human beings and the highly complex psychological processes of initiation that every human spirit that goes forth from Me has to undergo. The tale was invented to explain them in the most simple terms possible, which could be easily be grasped by ordinary men and women at that particular phase in humankind’s evolution. The esoteric truth behind it is that Adam, the man, represents Consciousness and Eve, the woman, psyche, the man’s soul. Each one of you contains both.

In My mind I first the perfect prototype, which means that like Me he is whole because he contains all My aspects and characteristics. From this emerged the primordial being Adam of the sacred texts, where his pre-conscious state is described as a deep sleep. In this state I took one side from him – not a rib, as it was misinterpreted in later versions of My teachings about this process of Creation. This part of My wisdom is very old indeed because I gave it to your world in ancient times. It found its way into the Judaic tradition from the much older traditions of the ancient Greeks. They in turn had extracted their spiritual knowledge from the ancient Egypt culture that predated them, and so forth. The part truth that Eve was created from Adam’s side was lost in translation, because people in those days could simply not yet grasp that this did not mean one side of his physical body, but his inner self and subconscious.  The whole truth, which you are now ready to receive, is that Eve, the woman, was and always will be an individual spirit, who is whole in her own right, the same as Adam, the man.

But, now you are ready to grasp that Adam is a symbolism for My consciousness and also yours. In both genders he represents the masculine aspect. Eve is his feminine counterpart, psyche or soul. You can surely see for yourself that the Fall from Eden is a metaphor for humankind’s psyche taking its consciousness into the identification with its physical body. It was no fall or accident, but a necessary evolutionary step for helping each one of you to become aware that in truth you are an individual spark of Me, My child, each one whole and complete with its own masculine consciousness and feminine soul aspect, just like Me.

The purpose behind creating you as men and women has been and still is the development of these parts in equal proportions. The two eventually have to be perfectly balanced in you, the way they are in Me. To achieve this, all human spirits have to reincarnate sometimes into male physical bodies and on other occasions into female ones. It was for evolutionary purposes that your other half had to remain hidden from your own view for a very long time. That’s why you were provided with two levels of awareness, a conscious and a subconscious one.
