freedom from despair

In the Garden of Eden, The Tree of Knowledge forces God to make the distinction between Good and Evil when enforcing the judgment to expel Adam and Eve. Judgment is the seed of despair. The curse of awareness is shame and blame, those who have the most are trying hardest to sell it because they need it to be valued.
Observation is the art of poetic detachment. Learning how to neutralize defensive reflexes keeps me from feeling offensive. I understand being a victim of judgment by giving everyone credit for the exercises imposed on them. When care becomes less conditional you can free others from some of their conditions (of judgment and despair.) If judgment was less good could despair be less (evil)?

I just saw "The Fountain" for the 1st time.

Your "tree" was prominently featured.

Odd coincidence.

I see it this way, judgement is wrongly taken mostly, should be understood to be simply 'finding what is yours', and so, having nothing else to do with anything or anyone, but using it as we people have learned to do, we have opened the doors of despair, of which there should be none.

So what is that, a reduction of meaning of a word in order to arrive at more goodness and less division as in despair?

I think of Eve as 'internal hope of understanding', from her name, and from her action and its meaning. Eve can be seen separate from Adam, but Adam can never be separated from Eve. Adam comes across as 'the whole visualized understanding as meaning'. And in this, 'visualized' means 'making sense together'.

So if she is separated, she is despair. Together they are complete and more (meaning).

She is the mother of all life, so 'meaning' is life itself over and above the parts in despair.

Something like that.

It's not about the story, there is a gift under the wrapping! The lesson can be exposed in pretend realities, but the spectrum of spirit is beyond being contained, (in a tree) roots feed the blossoms but the awareness of the aroma permeates thought (some people can't get past the fertilizer)
Charles we talked great shit last nite, can't wait to branch out ~

I wish I could understand this better.

I don't mess with faith Bradford, faith has meaning over and above what it is used for, I go for that and the usual conceptual interpretation of faith, gets lost. This way of mine perhaps comes from seeing faith made the servant of evil from one person to another. I have many people who pray against me intentionally and pointedly, I know that sometime there is power in it, but that the power is wielded by other than a real God.

The aroma is right, I was thinking/seeing the other day about leaves, the currents passing thru and around the trees, the atmosphere and clouds, all relative to the ground forms and roots, coupling that with the deeper parts of the earth, and the higher layers of sky, realizing a world of limited expanse but great variations within, all inter-communicative and involved as a unit, the me, and us, and so on. Then I also sense past that, where the senses can't go.

Glad I returned, I am sure you are saying more than I realize, you are quite good at it Bradford.
