The first thought after the first bite from the Tree of Knowledge brought seduction, and the second bite brought shame. Each so-called bad thought widens the separation while each good thought brings us closer to closing the gap. “Draw nigh to God and God will draw nigh to you” ( James 4:8, Kjb). The Bible tells us that Adam and Eve hid because they were naked. The physical symbol of human nakedness represents guilt in human consciousness. Man, having prior experience of Oneness, would immediately sense that God knew their guilt therefore they felt exposure. They hid because they sensed that God could see what they had done. This act of concealment was man’s conscious effort to hide his guilt from God; in doing so, man’s consciousness separates from God (subconsciousness). God, in turn, or subconsciousness, increased the separation. As a result, man’s consciousness has lost its awareness of the subconscious; in addition, God divided the subconsciousness into two parts. The first is lower or finite subconsciousness. The second is the higher infinite subconsciousness or super consciousness, which places a firewall between the two. Hence, early man had little or no sense of morality until he began to develop laws for governing behavior.

Since the subconscious was now divided in two, it still possessed some of its earlier attributes. These attributes still provided man with a certain level of dominion that he had prior to the separation. The Law of Manifestation is still within his grasp; however, he would now have to learn through hard work how to use them. Man now would have to use his own will power and trial and error to discover mastery of these laws. Hence, man was and is capable of achieving great success in all areas of his life. Abundant or eternal life was out of reach, so no matter how great was man’s success, he would surely die.

The next level mixes beliefs or thoughts of both good and evil. This type of person, has conflicting thoughts, for example, he holds to the belief that if you work hard you will become successful, while also claiming that he never gets any breaks two different approaches to success. At this level, two conflicting thought processes exist; therefore, the individual experiences some success, but never to the degree desired. This is because the conscious level is saying, “If I work hard, I will become very successful,” while emotionally, he is also saying, “I never get any breaks.” This is due primarily to the unawareness of envy, resentment, or some other negative belief. Since, in this case, the emotional thoughts upload more easily into the subconscious, the results are counterproductive. The majority of people are at that level due to conflicting thoughts between emotional consciousness and mental consciousness; therefore, they end up blocking their own success. The results are that the individual never achieves the desire of the heart. This is also why prayers are often not answered.
