“Adam, Eve and the Apple, a different understanding?” you may ask. How can that be? It is a very straight foreword account of what happened. There was a woman who bit an apple from a forbidden tree and then gave her spouse some of the same apple.
Some say that the shared apple alludes to a sexual encounter. I don’t agree with that.
The Bible, in my opinion, is a spiritual book. Dictated from the spirit realm to spiritual people on the earth. It was a guide book for people who are on a spiritual journey. Like a map of pitfalls and dangers they may encounter along the way.
Eve represents the spiritual aspect, the thought. All thoughts begin in the spirit realm. Adam represents the physical aspect, the action. That is why Adam is given the apple by Eve. In other words, a thought always comes before the action.
The apple is the subject in this story. It is the thing that Eve is focused on. In this case it is fruit from the Tree of Good and Evil. It really does not matter what the actual thought was. The fact that Eve knew that the action she was about to take was wrong is all we have to know.
Adam, Eve and the Apple: Doing Wrong
Anytime we contemplate doing something wrong for our own benefit we relive the story. Like the song says, “If loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right”. There are times when all of us are guilty of doing something wrong because it feels oh so right. Consequences be damned.
We all hope that whatever the consequence may be, it doesn’t find us today. Like the story says, “You will certainly not die – today.” It is a chance Eve is willing to take. There is an old saying that it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. That is only because we know in asking the answer will likely be no.
In all likely-hood we will get away with our action in the beginning only to have the consequence present itself later. Much later we hope. Anyway, the video is below: Mysticology 101 – Adam, Eve and the Apple
