Then the Genesis parable/event/whatever would describe metaphorically
a "time" when we were all pure light, part of the whole, but through
free will choose to separate into separate blobs of light to find our
way i.e. leave paradise, leave the one-ness and harmony with our
Creator-Love. "Garden" is/was/will be(time is hard here) a "lush"
perfection, and we find ourselves "slouching towards Bethlehem(T.S.Eliot)
groping our way to the paradise we lost. Will any not find their way...???????
And Christ, the "I am", the Is/Was/Will Be, makes this possible????
