The Forbidden Fruit and the Origins of the Law of Attraction
In this episode, I explore the concept of creative thought, also known as the law of attraction, and its connection to the forbidden fruit which caused humanity’s downfall. I discuss whether utilizing this power should or shouldn’t be done and the potential consequences of doing so. I also delve into the origins of the law of attraction and how it has grown with an increasingly modern and liberal mindset. We take a closer look at the ancient text of the book of Job, where God’s appearance and questioning of Job serves as a powerful example of breaking through the ego to experience divine judgment. This passage illustrates the overwhelming difference between our limited human understanding and the vastness of the godhead, highlighting the humbling nature of such a profound encounter. I also examine the teachings of Gnostic and Hermetic traditions, as well as Kabbalistic and Masonic ideas, and how they relate to the concept of creative thought and the law of attraction. I emphasize the importance of understanding the true meaning behind these teachings and the potential dangers of misinterpreting them.
Join me as we dive deep into the complexities of creative thought, the law of attraction, and the forbidden fruit, and uncover the truth behind these mysterious concepts.
