The gift of bones
Wednesday, April 21, 2010, 05:28 AM
Basically, the first earthly beings had all the attributes and capabilities to reach the goal of their human existence which was – and still is – union with Soul.
Separation and the gift of bones were necessary to the early beings’ evolution for, in their androgynous state, self-absorption deprived them, as it does everyone, from the motivation to forge ahead and expand one’s horizon.
Separation was the necessary impetus to get the contented dream-walkers that were the early beings of light to become Soul-aware.
Ripping them apart from themselves, from their other half, was the sacrifice forced on to them in order to get them to *work* towards accessing the good will and love of their other half.
Knowing that Soul, pure divine energy, is Love, it is through striving to access that love, by giving love and compassion, that they were to re-unite with Soul.
The best laid plans are not always realized quickly, but in the fullness of time.
Cosmic intentions not yet been fulfilled

Clearly, Cosmic intentions have not yet been fulfilled as, throughout the parade of millennia, though mostly not androgynous, we, as a species, have remained tremendously self-interested and self-serving individuals in spite of a succession of civilisations. Giving and sharing love and compassion is still not our forte.
After the Separation, instead of accepting What Was, these beings were driven by the need to reunite with their other self – their true other half – but they went about it in the neurotic way of the one who contemplates their image in the dark surface of a pond and – imagining it to be that of their missing half – struggles to touch her, to hold her.
I suspect that each time we fall in love badly enough to lose our rational mind, it is out of an inexplicable, unshakeable conviction that we have found our soul mate in the eyes of the one who reflects us – the one who, we are convinced, will make us whole. I no longer doubt that this state of being is a throwback to the early days of post separation.
Though it could be said that pre-separation, the beings of energy were like zombies or dream-walkers, they were much more than that because they had been endowed with the *Image of God*, which simply means a built-in channel, an incredibly strong mirror, through which to regain inward vision and reach Soul. This channel, the strong mirror, is the ego-persona.
While the androgynous beings were as innocent as babies, their ego-persona was inactive. Let’s just say that being as complete as yin and yang are complete, they had nothing to imagine. Thus, free of desire, their thinking didn’t go beyond a state of just being. Their ego, like the surface of a pond, was clear and still.
After Separation, however, as in the case of children in the candy shop or in the case of us on a shopping spree, the natural byproduct of outward sight was a desire, a craving to possess whatever the eyes saw, which then became whatever the mind/thoughts desired. Their ego, like the surface of a pond on a blustery day, was murky and ruffled.
It is in response to this new state of being that our karmic ancestors’ ego-persona got tripped. It was not the discovery of a material world that activated the ego-persona as easily as a “sleeper spy” gets awoken into action, but their indulgent response to it.
It might have been because the soft skin of their human body was not protected by fur, feathers or scales that our karmic ancestors felt vulnerable and so, beyond creating weapons to suit their various needs, they began to hoard and they began to cling to what they had hoarded.
Animal pelts worn for protection were all these beings could access and the trend to wearing leather as protective clothing prevailed well into the turn of this century, but I find it an interesting aside to note that throughout the ages, all of them, we, humans, have always enjoyed the feel and the look of animal skin over our body in the form of furs and leather. Go figure.
