The reason for chaos in the world is that from the beginning we haven’t understood the workings of our own individuated consciousness. We “misused” it when we lost sight of the Greater Whole/Omnipresence; our unity at the core. Early pristine consciousness (The Garden) jumped the track when it believed its projections onto the screen of life were external. But in truth what we see is a result of what manner of thought is within us. We’ve come to define ourselves by our externalized thoughts when in reality we are the Power behind them. In blindness to the Greater Whole we’ve (generally speaking) formulated an autonomous misplaced sense of identity (Prodigal), which creates in its own “selfish” trajectory (sin of pride). This is the original sin. The most beneficial way to understand the bible is to look beyond the words. To know it describes states of consciousness through metaphor.
