Origin of suffering

By eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, Adam and Eve created the original sin, which was:

‘’I know better than God’’.

 This act sprung to create suffering. They no longer accepted that which is, and for the first time a thought sprung into their heads ‘’things could be otherwise’’.

By creating this though, they created an endless pursuit for greatness, for perfection, for expansion, which really is the original sin repeating itself.

‘’I will make things right!’’

‘’I will become great!’’

I this and I that. Also know as ‘’I know better than God’’.

Every step towards an objective goal is a step away from God.

Every step toward learning from mistakes and trusting what is, is a step toward God.

This doesn’t mean you can’t have goals, if reality is guiding you towards a goal, take it. Not because you want to become great, but because God is guiding you towards that direction.
