Descent into matter
Was foreseen by cosmic intelligence
May 17th 2017
In the book of Genesis, it is said that Adam and Eve, having disobeyed God were driven out of Paradise. But this is only a symbolic story of the descent of human beings into matter. This descent, in fact, was neither a mistake nor an accident; it was foreseen by Cosmic Intelligence. Why? Because in order to attain a more complete knowledge, human beings were required to develop their intellectual faculties. To develop these faculties, they had to devote themselves to the exploration of matter, which meant placing themselves in conditions which temporarily diminished their perception of the spiritual world. Human beings today find themselves at a stage of their development where they are immersed in materialism. But it is not the final stage: when this experience is complete, they will return to the regions of the soul and spirit which they have left, and thanks to all they have experienced in the material realm by way of the intellect, they will return enriched.
