EDENIC NATURE #3
Perhaps if business, medical, technical and service industries could see the connection between our desire for the comfort and belonging to Eden, then they would design environments of comfort (small garden areas of privacy with seating) to buy cars, buy homes, receive healing, get technical help, have business transactions, buy groceries, and receive various kinds of service. The fastest way to move people through these every day activities is to equally decrease any form of Eden (i.e., Southwest Airlines and peanuts, any McDonalds, Wendy’s, any CPA’s office, doctor’s office, or quick print place).
Every decrease of Eden is a decrease in the desire to live and spend time in such a place and every increase of Eden is an invitation to stay and dwell.
The original Garden of Eden was a place of complete balance of nature and all its elements. Everything was perfect including the idea of choice by having a forbidden tree. Without choice we can never love because love is always a choice. Obedience can be demanded but love remains a choice.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” Jesus
