For many years I heard the story of the Garden of Eden. Usually when I heard this story I mostly paid attention to the part about Eve eating the forbidden fruit, and everything just getting really jacked up after that. Lately I've been putting a few pieces of what I've become aware of to really figure out why we sabotage our good fortunes.
The forbidden fruit she ate without permission according to the story was from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. In the story there is another tree there as well, and this tree is the Tree or Life. For many years I've always just really paid attention to the fact that Eve ate the forbidden fruit, but it never dawned on me the significance of these two trees in the Garden of Eden.
When Eve ate the forbidden fruit she became instantly aware of the distinction between good and bad. When she bit that fruit according to my theory she felt for the first time that sinking, scary feeling in the pit of her stomach. She was able to worry about the unknown, the what if's she instantly forgot that she was working in tandem with her Creator, and began to see where she could fail.
She was suppose to just pull from the Tree of Life. This tree had everything she needed and it knew not death, or fear, or what if, or depression. This tree only knew life. God is life, so everything alive has a part of God in it. It didn't matter after she ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, because once she ate from that forbidden tree she would always need to be very cautious as to how she would feel moving forward. By default had she only eaten from the Tree of Life, she would have felt good all the time,but when when she ate from the forbidden fruit she learned the distinction between good and bad and could emotionally transition back and forth, causing unwanted outcomes like death, pain, suffering or anything unpleasant.
In my theory there is no devil, but there is an opposite of good. There must be a good and a bad, a dark and a light, there must be opposites in order to expand. Before Eve ate the forbidden fruit she was able to prosper with the help of negative and positive working together at just the right speed in order to be, do and have anything she wanted.
Here's the deal, have you ever noticed that when we use batteries we need a negative and positive, and when we use electricity it's the same thing. In my theory this goes back to where we came from in the very beginning. According to Scientist, the earth was created when a Star exploded. Stars have something going on inside of them that is a lot like what we have going on inside of us. The struggle of wanting something, but not wanting to do the work. The two just don't go together, and that's what is happening inside stars. Scientist say it's gravity and something called fusion that basically repells each other.
When we join opportunities we want what that opportunity offers, but we don't want to do the work. Just like a positive and a negative. It's when these repelling forces finally engage do we experience outcomes.
For example, let's pretend that you want to paint a picture. You love paining and you have an idea in your head for a painting. You are thinking about painting a beautiful ocean sunset, but as much as you want to, just don't really feel like getting around do it just yet. You want to, and you don't want to at the exact same time. Then finally these two repelling feelings finally engage and then voila you are painting the picture you've been meaning to get around to for weeks, months or even years.
The reason why so much time takes place between our dreams and our desires is because of our knowledge of all the stuff that could get in our way. For example with network marketing we have to prospect, we need to get out there and ask people if they want to either be a customer, or participate in our opportunity. People are either going to say yes or no. This is life, even in the most perfect world man kind has the will to say yes or no. Because we understand the distinction between yes and no we cringe at the idea of hearing no. If we never turned the idea of hearing no into an uncomfortable emotion, hearing it wouldn't make a difference. And if hearing "no" did not make a difference we would not let the word no discourage us. Because we are scared of hearing the word no we avoid it, and when we avoid it we are never going to live the dream.
Good feelings and bad feelings omit a signal. Good feelings get good, and bad feeling get bad. Our frequencies bounce back and forth thousands of times a day throughout the day. Had we not had the forbidden fruit we would have never noticed when we are feeling bad, but because we did we will always notice the difference. Not only will we notice the difference, but we are causing see saw of emotions.
An example of this would be the good feeling you get when you purchase a dream. You feel really good, and unstoppable, you can see the money you will make and you are excited. Then you think about the bad things that could happen, poor sales, rejection, week recruits. These bad thoughts, cause bad feelings and bad feelings put out bad frequencies. If you get stuck in this space you will get so much of the unwanted outcomes. When you focus on the good that your business can do you will give off good feelings and you will want to move forward because you are fearless, but the minute you get the slightest since of insecurity you are slowing down your chances to reap your desired benefits.
Does this make since? I know it may not sound like anything you have ever heard before, but that's the problem, had you heard this before your desired outcomes would be more often. The bottom line is, we can't help the fact that we are going to worry about stuff, it's what we do because we are mixed with human. As Spiritual Beings if we consciously transition those uncomfortable feelings into soothing ones, our attractions will be most pleasing.
