This planet has been the laboratory for God's great experiment with human beings. God wished to see what would happen to humans, who were part of His own Perfection, when they were given spiritual amnesia at birth, so that they could not remember that they were pieces of God.

This is the only planet of "Free Choice", which means that God has allowed our own minds to make the choices to decide how to carry on living our lives. Would we really, intuitively do, whatever we had to do in alignment with Divine Will, or would we seek to adventure into realms of experience that would take us further away, into the darkness of not knowing that we were God?

In the Kalyug era, we seemed to have moved into the pits of darkness, and now the only way out is to back up into the Light!

This hilarious story tells us of the beginning of our so-called sins, and completes this message.

"To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students...here is something to make you chuckle. Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children.

After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was "DON'T!"
"Don't what?" Adam replied.
"Don't eat the forbidden fruit." God said.
"Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve...we have forbidden fruit!!!!!"
"No Way!"
"Yes way!"
"Do NOT eat the fruit!" said God.
"Why"
"Because I am your Father and I said so!" God replied, wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants. A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked!
"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God asked.
"Uh huh," Adam replied.
"Then why did you?" said the Father.
"I don't know," said Eve.
"She started it!" Adam said.
"Did not!"
"Did too!"
"DID NOT!"

Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.

But there is reassurance in the story! If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself. If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?"
