2:7 says, "Then the Lord God formed man out of dust from the ground and

Creator gives unto every creature this divine emanation to prove His existence
and manifestation. It is through Life that the Word becomes manifest into flesh,
and dwells amongst us.
also has three stages of manifestation as does every other facet of spiritual
existence. These stages are: formation, growth and perfection.
Lord formed man from the dust of the Earth. The dust of the earth symbolizes the
unmanifested Word of God--the idea. The Creator forms the idea in Universal
Mind. The unmanifested and the dust of the earth are all one and the same thing.
They are all form--the first stage of formation.
breath of God is Spirit. It is the office of the breath of God--as Spirit--to
create a pattern which can be filled in. Once the pattern is created, man enters
into Life--becomes a living Soul--the stage of growth has been achieved.
2 goes on to tell us that our Creator, the Lord God, planted a garden in Eden.
There, He put the man He had formed. Eden represents "Nirvana," the
highest state of Universal Mind. The garden planted there represents our
heavenly existence--our own heavenly life in that state of mind.
also tells us that the Lord God, our Creator, made to grow every tree that is
pleasant to sight and good for food. Trees represent and symbolize the many ways
of Life in which the individual manifestation of man can express itself.
tells us that these trees, or ways of Life, were pleasant and good to sight and
for food. This is provided to us who understand that all the ways of Life are to
be visualized and partaken of--each in accordance to the individualís desire.
also tells us that the Tree of Life is there. The Tree of Life symbolizes the
mainstream of existence, or the unlimited source of pure Spirit--the Truth--the
Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil also grew there. this tree represents
duality. The Tree of Knowledge Good and Evil was purely symbolic; it was male
had only arrived at the stage of growth. He was unable to eat of this fruit [of
the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil] in this state of mind--the state of mind
he was in at the time of the Garden incident. Therefore, the Lord Creator
forbade him to be so tempted by the serpentine force of uncontrollable desire to
attain. Man violated the Law of nature and unnaturally created a false image of
himself because man had not grown to perfection and attained Lordship. He was
unable to control his creation. This was the original sin.
this Age of the Lord of Life, and the Great Christ Power, man has grown to
perfection and is now ready to dominate Life. We stand at the threshold of pure
life not bound by handicap nor by inhibitions and fears.
walk in the liberty of the Christ, and demonstrate through the Truth which sets
us free. We are told that there is a river in Eden which waters that Garden.
This river is the spiritual Life which is the highest state of mind in which God
are told that the river was divided into four rivers. The four rivers plus the
original river equals five.
Genesis 2:11, we are told about the gold being forced into the Garden. Gold is
the materialization of Godís pure idea. Gold symbolically represents man when
the alchemist says he turns base metal into gold. He is in reality saying that
he is forming man out of the dust of the earth, and making him a living soul. He
is also transferring him out of the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of
Godís dear Sons.
are told in the Gospel of St. John 1:4-5, "In him was life; and the life
was the light of men. The light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness has
not overcome it." This means that in man, there is Life, and Life is also

is only one Life and one Self--the primordial force for good. This primary force
for good--infinitely indwelling and full of divine Wisdom and Knowledge--is
incapable of transgressing the Law, for the Law is part of its nature.
Christ was the first begotten of many brethren--the Divine Son of God. The
scriptures say that in Him was Life. He is a personification of Divine Life. He
transmitted that Life to us through the Divine bloodstream of Spirit.
is why the Scripture St. John 1:7 declares, "The same came for a witness,
to bear witness of the Light, that all men through Him might believe." The
blood of Jesus Christ is the Divine Life of the spirit--not any of the denser
it has been related before, this Life is incapable of sin. Therefore, we, to
whom this Life has been imparted, are also incapable of sinning because we are
partakers of His blood, or His Life.
we can rightfully understand St. John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for
to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have Life, and
that they might have it more abundantly." Let us not forget that we are
partakers of the Father/Mother God--Divine Love--and be anointed of the water
and spirit partaking of a new divine Life.
using the Law, form and pattern, let us move forward, grow into perfection, and
stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has set us free. That liberty is
