In the garden of eden


Eagle with fish


“Father, what is sin?”

“Run, my son, run from anything

That may not strengthen your blossoming heart.

Let go of the vale of fear,

Darkening thy tomorrows.

Like the leaking vessel,

Throw overboard the dark load of gloom,

So that thy ship can float well.

When the eagle drops the fish from its claws,

It suddenly flies faster.

So too, you must strengthen your wings,

By letting go the dark seeds of insecurities; of doubts…

Stab! Stab at the jealousies; the malice of the heart,

For verily they are lethal poisons,

Weakening thy core, in order to delay happiness.

The mind-box relieved of its load,

Is better than the one,

Filled with snakes and monkeys”

“Do they come from Satan, Father?”

“Satan, my child? It is a symbol of desires—temptations …

Of all which would enslave you;

Pull you away from Love, to make you poor indeed.”

Power = Greed

Power = Greed
