Why Did Adam Sin in the Garden of Eden? What Is Today’s Outcome of Adam’s Sin?

Why Did Adam Sin in the Garden of Eden? What Is Today’s Outcome of Adam’s Sin?

After Adam’s sin comes the exile, all the way down to our world. “By the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”


Breaking as a Preparation for the Future Return

Why did the Creator conceive and execute this “operation” of breaking an exalted spiritual desire into many pieces, which fell into our world and clothed themselves in bodies? They forgot all about the fairytale garden and don’t perceive the spiritual world whatsoever. They feel no influence of the spiritual Light, but are occupied with themselves, catering to their petty corporeal desires, clashing their egos in wars, discord, and hatred. Indeed, what was the reason for breaking this great, unified soul of Adam?

The breaking allowed the most important thing to happen: the sparks of bestowal, the altruistic desires of Man (Adam) fell into the kingdom of egoism and saturated it with the “spirit of bestowal.” A “recording” was made in our egoism that there is such a great thing as a spiritual connection with the Creator, which is unbelievable joy that’s difficult to express in words.

It is precisely this feeling that will come into play later. It will remain dormant in our egos, waiting for an opportunity that will certainly come, for everything develops exclusively by the Creator’s design. Then, these sparks of spiritual experience, latent and biding their time, will illuminate the kingdom of egoism, and a path will appear in the total darkness. Like a seeing man leading the blind on a path, so will these sparks lead the egoistic desires toward the Light, toward correction.


The Time of Return Has Arrived

That time has come. Humanity realizes it has reached a dead end, that it cannot progress to a good life. We already feel the harm inherent in egoism, and we blame it for all the deadly sins: “…for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” We perceive it as dust from which nothing grows but war, depression, terrorism, and an endless string of suffering. This sensation signifies that the Creator is calling us to Him. He has “shone” His Light on us, and in it we saw ourselves as we really are – a sight so terrifying that we began to seek a way out of our selves. This is called “a prayer.”

It is precisely in this situation that the sparks of the soul of the first man awaken in us. They exist in everyone. Soon we will all feel them and realize we are parts of the one soul, one organism, and we’ll wish to return “Home,” living in unity with all the other souls, for without it we won’t survive.


Predetermined Path towards Perfection

Obviously, the act of the breaking was preordained. Otherwise, the “kingdom of darkness” would reign within us forever, and we would never awaken to feel the spiritual world as we crawl on the ground and consume dust like serpents.

Indeed, it is the Creator who has brought us to this state of futility, for there is no other force in the world – no demons, no devils, no witches – there is only the Creator. To compel us to independently ascend to His level, He has placed us in this situation.

Moreover, on our way back to Him we will need to undergo trials.

These trials are prepared for our benefit, for by overcoming them we form a single desire – to return to our previous state of our own volition, and live in accordance with the law of unity and love.

The Secrets of the Eternal Book“Why Did Adam Sin in the Garden of Eden? What Is Today’s Outcome of Adam’s Sin?” is based on the book, The Secrets of the Eternal Book: The Meaning of the Stories of the Pentateuch by Semion Vinokur.
