16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
The serpent smiled and said, “Do let me in:
Once in your thought I’ll get under your skin!
We can be good friends, just trust what I say -
You’re free to choose: Let me show you the way.
Simply just listen: temptation’s no trick:
In less than a second my nice thought will stick!
All you need do is just talk here with me,
I’ll tell you the truth about every tree.
I know what you want, - to be like a god,
To be much more than just raised from the sod.
The God that you love has sold you quite short;
You need to know evil to win my support.
Just disobey Him, - the apple do eat:
You will find it delicious, - an absolute treat!
The both of you will become very wise,
Strange just one mouthful will open your eyes!”
I spared him a thought, what he said seemed true:
It took just the one for his lies to pour through.
That little word “Just”, - temptation’s best friend.
Don’t be fooled! Don’t listen. Don’t dare descend!
Suggesting that sin is easy to do
Just makes an assumption error is true!
The Eve dream is false, for how can we fall
When our God is infinite, All-in-all.
We can’t be tempted, - don’t let error win:
The answer so simple. Don’t be took in!
God made us perfect, wake up from Eve’s dream!
In infinite Love there is no weak seam.
At one with the Father no one can fall.
There is nothing can tempt; God’s Love is ALL.
The favourite words of error may be “if”, “when”, “just”, “compare”. They don’t exist in Principle, where “Only”, “Now” and “All” reign supreme. There is nothing to tempt man, forever at one with God, nor could man, in His image and likeness, ever be tempted.
As stated in this week’s lesson there is “no other consciousness.” S&H 264:18 no
