Paradise

Adam and Eve chose knowledge and thus decided to reach God by becoming God. Therewith, with this very first step to knowledge, they forsook paradise, the oneness with God and with nature.

Knowledge separates those who acknowledge from the acknowledged. Knowledge is separation, separation is knowledge. The way to comprehensive knowledge leads through ever new, endlessly many separations.

Separation is pain. The painful road to knowledge has thus always been accompanied by the longing for unity, fusion. Sometimes the desire could be so strong that one would try to take it by force – always unsuccessfully. How can one force growth?

We can dream of unity, desire fusion – that is a beginning. Action starts with a thought, a plan. The real act, however, it begins in a dream, in the merging of intellect and feeling, in the anticipation of life in the momentum of living for life.

The dream
of undestructed nature
of painless unity
of paradise
creates happiness
and therewith
brings closer to paradise

Today, as our knowledge has permeated nearly everything around us, the single parts find to one another. We have transposed our knowledge into our everyday life, created more than just black and white, plus and minus, even more than color. We have opened the doors to the realm of multidimensionality – but have not yet entered the new century.

If we could understand how to take the power to judge over life and death out of the hands of the monotheists, of those, who are willed to put others to death as they see their end coming, of those who in their desparate fear of losing the power are prepared to see others die rather than even only their perception of world, if we are able to succeed those, only then may the world possibly experience the divine melting, permeation, unity of paradise.

The web of life. Nothing exists without the other. The knowledge of the indigenous is disclosed to us on a very high level of knowledge. What else does it tell us but to work together, not against one another? To cooperate in the search of solutions, more, to solve the problems together, more, to live, to love, to work together?

Then love is the highest possible value, automatically, because love is bonding.
On a new level.
Everybody is alone, separated, full of suffering, looking at death.
Everybody is grown up.
That is the basis of divine fusion – to face death, finiteness, separation.
And this separates us from God, the infinite, all that receives and surrounds us.

The end of day and night, above and below, light and heavy, that is paradise.
