MYND - Spiritual Alchemy: Open_Notes 16

Concept of Separation: When Adam bit of the apple in the Garden of Eden, he was symbolically choosing something other than his relationship with God - not satisfied (with his being, his potential within the God Family) he wanted to be his own creator - we, like Adam, have all held that apple - representing the antithesis of God - and made choices for which, deep down, we feel tremendous guilt and shame.

in making those choices which led us away from God, we believed that we would be punished, and so we created the "ego mind" (the most important me; the all important self; infallible; self-righteous) to protect ourselves - projecting our shame and guilt onto the world, we get rid of it by blaming others and finding them guilty - in doing so, we find ourselves innocent -this is our way of reclaiming the innocence that we believe we lost.
