As I sit in the sun to write this blog, the church bells are ringing in the neighbourhood, and I have just pulled a card from a brand new Angel and Tarot deck. Its title simply says “unity”, its message was loud and clear.
Unity. A merging of the past and the present in order to shape the future. Honoring history, the traditional teachings but also understanding that times have changed. We have evolved, and that knowledge gained is now applied to help shape a beautiful new future.
As I reflect upon the stories of the Garden of Eden, and the concept of having been kicked out of this beautiful paradise of creation due to the temptation of biting from the forbidden fruit, I allow my intuition to look closer at the apple tree, and even deeper still until my eyes fall upon the worm.
Why would there be a worm eating its way through an apple, causing destruction in this perfect utopia? Well, perhaps a perfect “exterior” utopia does not exist. You see, we arrived in the world perfectly whole, completely intact, and carrying the Garden of Eden inside our soul. We were given the gift of life, and as we were “kicked” out of the womb to take that first breath of this new world, we let out a cry, feeling as if we were “kicked” out of Eden.
We spend a lifetime searching, seeking, trying to be good enough, worthy enough, to go back.
Your not lost! Nor am I! We are both just looking to find perfection within a world that is not meant to be perfect, and in human form neither are we. Eden is already inside of us .. it’s the soul.
That worm in the garden is not causing destruction, it is transforming the false illusion and allowing seeds of possibility to fall to the ground and take root. It is planting for the next generations to understand they are not meant to be perfect as a human, as their soul already is. We were designed to leave the Garden of Eden and experience life. To truly live, try new things, learn and grow, but never to strive to be “perfect.”
We get to be the worm, beautifully created to inspire change and break away from a false perception. We get to be perfectly imperfect.
Lots of Love,
Inspired by my soul sisters who walk beside me in this journey of More Than Existing™
