The Tree Of Life

 

Written By : Gary Wonning

I knew in the Garden of Eden story, there was a serpent involved, and a tree, and an apple, which in reality no one knows if it was an apple or not. Shortly after that event, Adam and Eve got kicked out of the garden, but beyond that, I was completely bamboozled. Hope I don’t get kicked out of earth, at this point in time, I don’t know of anywhere else to go.

As time went on ,I began to realize the serpent actually symbolized knowledge, and what Adam and Eve did was actually a part of the divine plan, we humans didn’t really fall from grace, but were actually exposed to life whereby we were able to learn the necessary lessons so we would someday be able to return to our creator.

The pieces finally began to fall in place, it was all symbolic. Obviously, the funeral symbolized death, and by passing through the veil of death, we entered into a new life and thus life continues, our soul never dies. The Tree of Life does symbolize knowledge, however, the missing link is understanding, we can have all the knowledge in the universe, but it does us no good until we reach an understanding as to what it means to us.

It may be the tree of knowledge, however, the understanding has to come from us, the individual, no one can teach that to us. The secret to life is to find the tree of knowledge, which is always near us, and by it understand what life really means to each and every one of us.
