Tree of Knowledge

The world he saved

Was this world

The one we have created

The one we live in now

 

He put the knowledge

Of this world in a tree

The tree of knowledge

Of good and evil

 

The name of the tree tells us

That to have knowledge

We must know both

Good and evil

 

And for these two

To grow from

The same seed

Tells us

You cannot

Have one

Without the other

 

How is it

Good and evil

Grow together

In one tree

 

Everything we know now

Was in that tree

 

We are the gods

They wanted to be

 

Genesis 3:5

“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

 

Psalms 82:6

“I have said, Ye are gods…”

Captivated

Art: Princess in a Tree, artist unknown

Captive

But not a prisoner

 

Captivated

By his charms

And his wisdom

And his love

 

By that he held me captive

But I am no longer captive

 

He has freed me

From the illusion

He created

Just for me

 

He hid me

Within his creation

 

What was once hidden

Is no longer hidden

 

It is made manifest

By the illusion he created

 

The Mind

Art: Immaculate Conception by Giovanni Bapttista Tiepolo

When the spirit

Puts her foot

On the head

Of the serpent

Game over

 

The mind is

A worthy adversary

A worthy opponent

But no match

For the spirit

 

Spirit trumps mind

She created the mind

 

Overcome the mind

Do not see it

As an obstacle

But as a stepping stone
