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.

A theme is the central idea of a narrative or a story. It is usually stated in no more than a few words (e.g., good versus evil or true love). When you begin to view your life as if it were a story, a theme will surface. A theme is usually the essence of an individual’s persona. “You will know them by their fruit” (Matthew 7:16, nasb). The fruit of the tree identifies the tree. An apple identifies the tree by its apples; its theme is to bear apples. One’s theme is the perfect pattern spoken by Plato; it is the Word spoken by super-conscious mind, the God mind within us, the Christ. It is divine design as referred to by Shin. It becomes the force behind thoughts, behaviors, and actions. It becomes the root of a personal mission and purpose for living. It becomes the ideal that an individual lives by. Without knowledge of one’s theme, we plant seeds of an uncertain harvest or we plant seeds that bear no fruit.

Now, it is important to understand that, regardless of all possible themes that might exist, they are all fruits of one of two trees. The Tree of Life or Oneness and Perfection, a United Consciousness with God, and The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil or Duality, Separation and Death, with a consciousness and subconsciousness functioning independently. Both trees provide the same laws of attraction and manifestation. When our theme is the fruit of the Tree of Life, “the burden is light” and success is certain, for infinite intelligence shows the way and rapture is possible. However, themes that are the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge have man’s conscious desires as a guide. Man, in most cases, is unaware of a theme. He, in most cases, unknowingly creates poor negative themes leading to self-destruction.

Those who unknowingly or knowingly used the law of manifestation can become very successful and have an abundance of health, wealth, and loving relationships based on worldly standards, however, remain as the fruit of the Tree of Death, and they will “surely die” (Genesis 2:7, nasb).

The Law of Manifestation, as applied to the Tree of Knowledge, can take one of several forms or levels. At the base, there is no understanding of the principle, as a man thinks he is. This type of conscious thinking will generally lead an individual to a level of consciousness that has a poor, bad, or evil thought process; some form of self-destruction, due to evil, bad, or poor knowledge, belief, and/or ideas that are manifested into some form of anti-social, failing, or ill behavior. These individuals are very successful in their negative conscious state of mind manifesting their negative anti-social desires of the heart. For example, this belief: “If you want to get ahead, you have to take it.” So the individual takes what belongs to those who worked to get it. Let us examine further the key principle within the Law of Manifestation characteristic of persistence. The thought of failure enters into one’s mind, and the thought is entertained. This thought of failure, should it continue to repeat, will, at some point, develop into a state of mind, a state of mind that repeats and persists to nurture the thought of failure and forms consciousness, a conscious condition of failure. The thought of failure persisting in consciousness forms manifestation. Manifestation produces realization in the physical world. The individual has successfully manifested the condition of the conscious mind.
