genesis

Adam and Eve, in the tradition of Abraham father of Christians, Muslims and Jews, were the first humans. Eve gave birth to Cain. Then she gave birth to his brother Abel. Abel became a shepherd of a flock. Cain cultivated the land. In the course of time, Abel lived in Unity with the Spirit that flows through ALL of Creation and appropriately sacrificed physical comfort to live in Unity. Cain, however, lived in separateness connecting with the physical rather than the Spirit that connects the ALL and did not appropriately sacrifice the physical to live in Unity. Abel, through living harmoniously with the Spirit that connects the ALL lived with Inner Peace. Cain, in his disconnection, was left tormented and angry. Cain was furious and he was downcast because the physical things left him disconnected from the Spirit that connects the ALL. And why are you furious? And why are you downcast? If you do right and live in Unity with the Spirit that connects ALL of Creation, won’t you be accepted? But if you do not do right and connect with physical things, rather than the Spirit that connects ALL, loneliness, torment and anger will destroy you. The desire is for you to be One with Creation, but you must master it over your desire for the physical. But Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him. Genesis 4:1-8 And so you see my friends, the story of Cain and Abel is at the root of all human conflict, loneliness, torment and misery. Amen
