Matthew 5:38 “Ye have heard that it hath been said, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth 39) but I say onto you, that ye resist not evil, but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn him the other also..”
Now I say onto ye: this time has come to pass also, and whosoever shall smite thee, embrace him, for he has shown thee what thee has attracted to thyself.
It is not so difficult to understand that karma, the law of attraction is also set in motion by thoughts, just as thoughts guide your actions. Fragmented feelings (being disconnected from wisdom) made connections through your senses, and these senses are outwardly directed. And therefore only knows its outer perimeters(the senses and what is sensed). It is like judging a book by its cover.
Yes we moved on from the cover to the written word, but in the text also man only sees its outer shapes.
These fragmented feelings are of course coming together in the love that is g-d and finds in Him the wisdom that makes perfect .
To “identify with” is related to the story of Adam and Eve. It is the becoming of self-awareness through the development of senses. And so by the very splitting of a rib of Adam to create Eve, there was something of him outside of himself to become aware of.
The actual eating of the fruit, is the becoming aware of you in the other. A oneness where love and wisdom are. Yes the very attraction that guided you home through me.
When they ate of the fruit and ignored what g-d said, not to eat of that tree in the middle of the garden, they were sent out of the garden. This also means they turned away from the wholeness of g-d. They carried the love of g-d with them, but lost the connection with the wisdom aspect of g-d. A blind attraction which through experience will lead man to see that heavenly man was built in the image of g-d, and the world was built in the image of man that was born of this world.
It is this spark (the heavenly man) that fell to earth, as in being sent out of the garden. Yes, whose crown fell to earth? He who turned away from g-d, and was sent out.
Now it may become more clear why he said “I am the morning star and evening star”. It is not the soul that is the source of wisdom that guides you, but the creation of desire that is raised by being disconnected. G-d has built in the very law that eventually brings you back, Karma. In his wisdom he rounded it (remember article about the 6).
The soul itself is guided. Yes, he too is a son of g-d and you wished him away! He is your brother who was blinded. Embrace him, so he too may see the light. Forgive him, because you know not him, but you were a hard learner. His fall was the price for your place in heaven.
