Health, Aging and Death
After leaving the Garden of Eden, we became vulnerable to our imaginations, idols and deception. It will continue to be this way until we find our way back.
22 And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 23 So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.Genesis 3:22-23
Where is the Garden of Eden? Like all things of God, as it refers to humanity, it is within us. Leaving the garden was our doing. In order to live in harmony with the purpose of God, to live in the garden, we must be in perfection.
Until now it would seem that this was an impossible task for we have become intimate with evil. Let me assure you it is very possible. We are already perfect. We have a perfect Creator who has created a perfect person. That person is you, me and everyone else. How do we then live in perfect harmony with our Creator?
If we humans can act in a way to have ourselves thrown out of the Garden of Paradise (focus on and practice evil), we can act in a way that will give us access back to it (focus on and practice righteousness).
Love is the key. Love is not some rote you have memorized. Love is a heart connected to the Creator (the Father), following the direction being given.
I and my Father are one.John 10:30
Christ consciousness is the path. We will never be able to have the whole key if we are not on the path that Christ left us to follow. He said he had fulfilled the Old Testament. Which means that he closed it as a way of life. It is now only a testament to how life will turn out if we do the things that those ones did. Following the Old Testament of the Bible will give us the same results they had then and the end result we are seeing in the world today. It leads to destruction.
The New Testament gives us a way out. The only way is the way of the Christ. Christ’s path is not a way back to the harsh god of the Old Testament. That harsh god was conjured by the consciousness we had then. Remember, we had left the true God behind in the garden. Now we were turning to whatever god showed up that seemed to give us an advantage over others.
This is not to say that the “I Am”, didn’t have any effect upon those men and women of the past. There certainly was some, yet most did not hold fast and were not able to lead us in the way Christ did.
We have been lead by our delusions. There is no one who is better than another. For we are all of the True God. There is no escape from that fact. There is no where to hide from that fact. There is only dis-ease, delusion and death. Up till now, we have all been getting D’s but as long as we are alive we have not flunked. There is still a chance to pass the test.
The Garden of Eden is within you – all of us. That is where you will find it.
Meditation is the first step.
We are all searching for the path but we come to it from different roads. That is the main reason that you must do this on your own. The God, the Creator, created you perfectly and set you in the spot you are now. You are in the perfect spot to see him. You are in the perfect spot to hear him.
Science now knows that the heart is a brain, more brainier (is that a word?) than the brain in our head. The heart gives direction to the brain. The brain does not direct the heart. The brain, if we allow it will ignore the heart. But, that can only happen with our permission.
For example: Say that we got into our car. Started the engine, then put it into drive and left it to go where ever it desired without us trying to steer it. Or maybe giving it a little correction here or there. Sooner or later we would have a fatal accident. If we have lived this way for many decades, we look haggard and are sickly from the stress of the dangerous way we have been driving. What is worse, most everyone else is driving (living their lives) in the same way.
This is how we have been taught to live our lives. The car is our body. The steering wheel is the heart. The driver is our divine self who is one with the Creator. When we allow the divine self who is one with the Creator, to take control of our hearts, in this scenario the steering wheel, we safely and serenely get to our destinations, refreshed and with a happy smile on our still youthful face.
Remember the Garden of Eden promised eternal youthful life free from the stresses of not having what is needed to sustain ourselves. First let’s focus on health, and aging.
What do we meditate on?
“Remember that youth is God’s seed of love planted in the human form divine. Indeed, youth is the divinity within man; youth is the life spiritual – the life beautiful. It is only life that lives and loves – the one life eternal.
Age is unspiritual, mortal, ugly, unreal. Fear thoughts, pain thoughts, and grief thoughts create the ugliness called old age.
Joyous thoughts, love thoughts, and ideal thoughts create the beauty called youth. Age is but a shell within which lies the gem of reality – the jewel of youth.
Practice acquiring the consciousness of childhood. Visualize the Divine Child within.”
“Before falling asleep suggest to your consciousness, “I now realize that there is within me a spiritual joy-body ever young, ever beautiful:
- I have a beautiful spiritual mind
- I have beautiful spiritual eyes
- I have a beautiful spiritual nose
- I have a beautiful spiritual mouth
- I have beautiful spiritual skin
- I have the body of the Divine Infant, which now, tonight, is perfect.
Repeat this affirmation and meditate upon it quietly while falling asleep at night.
In the morning, suggest to yourself aloud, “Well dear, (your name), there is a divine alchemist within. By the power of these affirmations during the night a transmutation has taken place and the unfolding from within, the Spirit, has saturated this spiritual body and spiritual temple. The inner alchemist has caused dead and worn-out cells to fall and the gold of new skin to appear with perpetual health and loveliness. Truly divine Love in demonstration is eternal youth.
The divine alchemist is within my temple (body) constantly coining new and beautiful baby cells. The spirit of youth is within my temple – this human form divine, and all is well.” Amen.
You and you alone are your only hope
There are teachers out there who can help (like I said, meditation). The walk itself will all be on you. You can start or stop at any time. No one will force you. No one can do it for you. You will win the entrance into the Garden of Eden, all on your own, having done the work that no one can take away from you once done. Have a great journey!
