I had a vision, and the garden of Eden was not some different place or a different world.
Adam/Eve (metaphors for the early people on earth) were not really ‘banned’ from it nor had to physically move some place else. There was no external ‘God’ entity actively punishing them and banning them from the heavenly paradise.
It was just that the first inhabitants on earth, over time, let their ego and fear drive their actions. Mankind got trapped in the illusion, it didn’t respect Nature and started breaking it apart, instead, in order to study it, dissect it and having a sense of control over it.
By doing that, as they were detaching from Nature, they gradually detached from Love, from taking heart-based decisions. By starting to be fearful and trying to control too much, those negative emotions they were experiencing got out of hand, blame appeared, and human beings cast themselves ‘out’ of that place of bliss they had come to live in – not in the physical sense, but in the sense that they were not experiencing that bliss any longer, by their own behaviors.
It’s the monkey mind which killed (and keeps killing) paradise.
It’s Love alone that can restore it.
