What type of question is What is 'Eve'?
There are several ways to interpret the Bible but the one I have focused on is based on the truth of consciousness. I do this because the truth is in consciousness. What I have learned from Thomas Troward and several other metaphysical teachers is that everything expressed is first created in consciousness as thoughts or ideas.
What is ‘Eve’? is a question about consciousness and its relationship to Man.
In Part 1 of ‘The Truth about Adam and Eve” we talked about how the universal supreme creative force created everything out of him/her/itself. This understanding was further explained in Part two where we discussed how Atom/Adam is the physical/material representation of the consciousness of God as man. Basically what we stated was that God expresses the universe as the ‘matter’ and consciousness/idea of everything. The universe is the body of the universal supreme creative force/God. God is the universe. The universe is made of the conscious spirit/energy that is God. These facts have been established by Troward in his masterworks. Please see them before confronting me on the aforementioned premises. I restate them primarily as a base of knowledge. This base of knowledge is important in order to advance my mission to break down the allegory of Adam and Eve for this generation.
In order to understand ‘Eve’ from a metaphysical point of view, we have to acknowledge the master truth and recognize the inherent or implicit truth of ‘Eve’ in the master truth.
According to Troward in Bible Mystery Bible Meaning, the Bible must be interpreted from the perspective of man understanding how consciousness is reflected in the life expression. This means in order to get the deeper truth each character and story in the Bible is to be interpreted as a thought process and psychological expression. In accordance, we are to understand them from their actions and results. What they do and their results/expression give us an understanding of the cause/effect of their thought nature.
With thought being first cause we learn the nature and relationship of thought to affect or expression. This gives the stories of the Bible a whole different interpretation and meaning. We now can say definitely what “Eve” is and what her actions mean from thought and psychological point of view.
Many will say why is this important? It is important for if the Bible is a book to learn from, then the lessons should be eternally true. If the lessons can only be true for the characters and their situations then what are the long-lasting lessons for current and future human beings. The Bible could only be worth what is valid from a NOW perspective. Man can only make use of information that is absolutely true and eternally true. If the Bible is to give us an understanding of God then it has to inform us about the eternal truth about God. We can’t get a truthful understanding of the universal supreme creative force if the tales about it are not infinitely true since it is an infinite being.
Since God is consciousness and consciousness is infinite then the lessons about God in the Bible are and must be about consciousness.
