Eve, the Serpent and Consciousness

The story of Eve and the serpent represents humanity’s awakening to self-consciousness, but also the individual’s journey. As we become aware of ourselves we fall out of the bliss of ignorance, but the process is necessary to grow, ultimately to expanded super-consciousness. The story of the Garden of Eden has been taken as a reason to blame women for humanity’s suffering. We need to move on from complaining that we are no longer in the bliss of babyhood and accept our quest to grow.
