THE GARDEN OF EDEN, THE FLAMING SWORD, THE GARDEN OF EDEN

THE GARDEN OF EDEN, THE FLAMING SWORD, THE GARDEN

OF EDEN

 


Does each human being have to eventually deal with a realization that

 

the very fact of being born begins with one’s self-becoming, one’s own

 

birth, traumatizing, injuring, the beloved mother? Does the physical

 

harm the baby causes the mother in labor, the mother giving birth,

 

become something that causes the baby to believe that the mother

 

indeed will retaliate, that maternal love cannot be trusted, ever? How

 

does the birthing mother forgive the baby? Is the mother so grateful

 

that the birth process has ended that she loves the baby because the

 

baby is born, is no longer being born, but is born? Does the birth

 

catastrophe for both mother and baby become a mutual forgiving?

 

 Does life begin as “etzev”, labor? Eve experiences etzev in childbirth,

 

Adam experiences etzev in tilling the earth. Both labor — and labor

 

is difficult. Does labor define life? Is the caesura the recognition that

 

joy, hope, delight, life itself, is defined by the discovery of what actual

 

life demands of us?

 

Is life the catastrophe?

 

Is the flaming sword barring access to the Tree of Life in the Garden

 

of Eden the first breath we take?

 

If life is the first catastrophe, and if breathing to sustain life is loss of

 

Paradise, we also discover that within the complexities of life, and, of

 

course, breathing, is the essence of Paradise. Every now and then, we

 

are welcomed back to the Garden of Eden, and, as we are distracted

 

by the catastrophes of life, we hear a murmur in the breeze, “Come

 

back soon. Your Garden is eternal.”

My wife and i felt very cheerful when Peter could round up his investigation using the ideas he received when using the weblog. It's not at all simplistic just to be handing out concepts that some people could have been making money from. And we remember we now have the website owner to thank because of that.
