68. WORLDLY CONCERNS AND THEIR DELETERIOUS EFFECTS UPON THE SOUL
 (The Lord:) “Therefore I now say unto you all, that you cast off all unnecessary troubles from yourselves; for every worldly concern is a material tie with which the soul ties herself to matter through the original Adamitic scar! The more the soul binds herself to the matter of her flesh, the more the development of God’s spirit within her must suffer. And the more the soul then fuses herself to the body through worldly care, which body is a mere judgment, a regrettable necessity and therefore death, the more she also loses consciousness and recognition of eternal, indestructible life within her.
 He who therefore still harbors much fear of physical death, is still strongly bound with the flesh, and feebly with the spirit; because much love towards the life of this world is strong evidence of the soul’s lack of concern for the everlasting life of the spirit within her, and the blame lies with the old scar that Adam has struck into his own flesh, and that of his descendants,
 And yet every determined soul can heal itself of such harmful scar, because God had already in Adam’s presence taken the precautionary measures, and Adam was nearly completely healed towards the end of his days. Henoch was however completely healed, wherefore, like several other forefather, he was already transformed in his flesh. But because their descendants had nevertheless mixed with the children of unhealed fathers, the old Adamitic curse remained, with varying degrees of incidence for mens’ torment.
 Wherefore also the women’s painful childbearing, as well as the very painful types of death of man. Because a nature-soul already wounded by man’s seminal stream, immediately binds more stubbornly with the mother’s flesh, and must therefore be born into the world under all kinds of forceful band-rupturing. Children such as an Isaac however and many others in the world, have been born into the world without pain on the mother’s part.
40. THE HEREDITARY EVIL OF SELF LOVE
 (The Lord:) “You have heard of the hereditary evil – at least the Jews! What is it and how is it made up? See and hear!
 It is the old self-love as the father of the lie and all evil out of it; but the lie is the old, sinful matter, which is in fact nothing else than a loose and sinful appearance of self-love, selfishness,
haughtiness and imperiousness.
 All this originated out of the necessary stimulus, which I had to place into the spirits for the sake of recognition of the own free will; although the stimulus was necessary, the sinful coming into existence of the material world was absolutely no necessity. It was only allowed out of My order, as an unfortunate necessary consequence of the so many spirits which did not wanted to resist the stimulus, although they were able to – just like six times as many primordial created spirits were able to, of whom only one is standing here to serve us and carries the name Raphael.
 The enemy who always strewed the weed under the pure wheat, and still strews, and will be strewing for a long time to come, is therefore the old self-love, and the consequence as known to you is the weed, and in the furthermost sense the perfect example of all kind of matter, lies, Satan and devil.
66. FALL OF THE SPIRITS; ADAM AND ORIGINAL SIN
 (The Lord:) “It is the fall of the first-created spirits or the free and animated ideas of God within infinite space that is the great separation of which Moses says: ‘And God divided the light from the darkness’. How this is to be understood in its true and fully right correspondence, I have already made abundantly clear to you; the consequence of which is the necessary material world which, in large and small units such as suns, earth and moons, together with everything upon them, is spread out within infinite space.
 Concerning Adams’s fall however, this has already more objectivity of course than the so-called fall of the angels, yet is still correspondingly analogous to the fall of the angels. Only with Adam an actual law comes already to the fore, whereas with the fall of the angels, no such commandment could yet be involved, because at that stage only a start had been made with the development of the beings to be liberated, and therefore no intelligence outside of God existed to whom such law could be given.
 Wherefore, with the so-called fall of the spirits a necessary imposed division took place, whereas the Adamic one, proceeding out of himself, was already a voluntary one and therefore not an enforced one, but an act of free will of the first carnal man, free in all psychical spheres. On the whole however it nevertheless is a foreseen act out of God’s secret order which, whilst not an absolute compulsion, nevertheless is a permitted one, under “thou shall: or thou shall not”, allotted to man’s free will on account of his stabilization, won through his own action.
 The difference is that between an infant that has to be carried from one place to another, and a robust man who has been walking quite solidly for a lengthy period.
The Lord explains:  “Moses is by no means concerned only with the history of creation as regards earth and heaven and the created beings, but almost exclusively with the initial shaping of man’s heart and reasoning power, wherefore he connects it with the history of mankind. […]
 Whoever knows about the correspondence between the material world and that of the spirits can learn from this how the material world originated from the spirit world or how and from where the suns and finally, the planets and all life on them came into existence.
 But this is not quite so easy, for one must be spiritually fully awakened to comprehend all this.” (GGJ II, chap. 215)
Meaning of the metaphor of the creation of heaven and earth
The Lord resuming His explanations of the Genesys of Moses, emphasizes that in order to fully comprehend Moses, “one must have a good knowledge of the whole nature of man and full cognition of God”
 By “Heaven”, which Moses cites as first created, is to be understood the intelectual power, set by God outside of His eternal spiritual center. This is like a mirror which has the capacity to receive and reflect external objects. […]
"03] See, everything that Moses is saying with his genesis and actually wants to say, refers foremost only to the upbringing and spiritual development of the first humans in general, and only by correspondence also to the very first human couple.
04] By the way, Adam’s body has been formed and created according to My will and determined order, as I have showed you right now, from the ether particles of the finest clay of the earth; after becoming full of experience by My will and once has reached that particular strength, by which with him a most intensive outer life sphere must have formed, and when he at one stage, tired by work and traveling, fell into a deep sleep, the time has come, to place a nature soul composed of all the levels in nature familiar to you, into the outer life sphere of Adam.
05] This soul, being present in the outer life sphere, immediately began to form from these for her very lovely outer life particles of Adam, or from the richest life mist, like still today some souls of dead people are doing, if they want to appear to people for a few moments, a corresponding body according to My will and My order, and completed it within three days.
Chapter 8 THE FALL
"1. Thereupon eternal Love covered Its face and withdrew for a certain time in accordance with the number of order, was blind out of the depth of Its mercy and would not, and could not, know what the newly created would do in the judgment of the Deity for their freedom-test during the short time on earth through the love of mercy. And the place that was given them as a dwelling-place was a valley and a garden on the firm part of the earth and was called Paradise. That was the land which later abounded with milk and honey and was the place which in the great Time of times, when eternal Love performed the greatest of Its acts, was called -and will forever be called -'Bethlehem'. This was the spot where the eternal Word bodily in the flesh saw for the first time the light of Its grace shine upon the drop of mercy from the distant sun, the moon and all the stars.
2. And behold, their desire kept growing in the judgment of the Deity testing them in Its wrath. There was a tree standing in the garden bearing the most beautiful apples, and Eve felt a great desire for them and said to Adam: "Look, Adam, I feel a great desire for this fruit. If you want it, I shall pick one and taste it and then hand it to you as a first gift from my hand."
3. And Adam was silent, pondering the words of Eve. And an inner voice, which was holy as it came from the Deity within him, spoke to him: "If you eat from the fruit of this tree, you shall die!" This gave Adam such a fright that he was unable to answer his beloved Eve.
