When we take that that is the physical, the Adam, and intercourse with that that is the mental inside of you they give birth to that that is Cain & Abel. This is the struggle, the conflict. This happens all the time, inside of you is a conflict, inside of you is a struggle.
This is the symbolic and allegorical story of the Left and the Right side, if you were in China, they would call this the Ying and Yang.
That is what this story is about, it has nothing to do with two people. It is not important if these people even existed.
The word Cain means – ‘tiller of the soil’, your mind is the soil, your mind is the Earth what you dig out, your own ideas is Cain, religion is Cain, this is our constructed ideas, this is our physical way to get to God, the system, the rituals, the dogmas, whatever techniques you are digging out of your own mind is Cain.
Abel means – ‘keeper of the sheep’, sheep are divine thoughts, keep your eyes on the sheep.
The first ones to see the Christ Child are the sheppards, because they are the ones watching the sheep, they are tending the divine, the divine thoughts of the mind.
Genesis Chapter 4:3
And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
Here Cain brought to the LORD that which he grew out of himself, you bring to God that which is your ideas, what you have dug up, so the saying when someone comes to you with their ideas, “where did you dig that up from”, you dig it up from the ground of your own mind, and it won’t work.
Look in comparison what Abel does:
Genesis Chapter 4:4
And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
What you think is meaningless, what your teacher thinks is meaningless, what you have read means nothing, your Cain ideas mean nothing, what God thinks and what God brings to you is everything. The interesting part is what Abel brought, the first of his flock, what is important about being in the first born:
1st Corinthians Chapter 15:45
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul: the last Adam was made a quickening Spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural: and afterward that which is spiritual.
When you come to that thing you call God what you must sacrifice that which is the natural part, yourself, your mind, your thoughts, give it up, and that is why he gave the first things, things that were coming from his mind, Abel sacrificed the first part which was himself, how does Jesus Christ say you sacrifice the first part of yourself, “take no thought”, you have made your sacrifice, you have sacrificed your first born, those things that are part of your lower flesh must be sacrificed, then that which is the second part the spiritual can live, this is a consistent message throughout the Bible, each story and allegory weaving the tapestry and the beauty in the variety of ways to bringing forth this message, which is the wonderment of it all.
But they cannot live together, Cain and Abel could never live together, they had nothing in common, the left has nothing in common with the right, the lower has nothing in common with the higher, light has nothing in common with the darkness, Cain has nothing in common with Abel. Thoughts which are the divine thoughts of the right side in you have nothing in common with the carnal thoughts of the left side.
So then here we show the importance of giving the first part of giving yourself to the divine, of giving yourself to God. What difference is it if you study, what differences is it if you go to a seminar, what difference is it if you go to all of these places and you are still under the rule of the left, all you are is a smart Cain. But when you have given it up, and there is no more living on intellect, then you are starting to touch that which is holy, which comes pouring back, which is the wind from the East, the right side, the knowledge, the wisdom, the understanding, the divine.
So Abel sacrifices the natural part, and it says the LORD had respect unto Abel and not unto Cain.
Here you have come, you have come into meditation, you sat down one night, you sacrificed your first born, you sacrificed yourself, you sacrificed your thoughts, and you sacrificed your ideas, and you see the power and the divine. What happens next is that you stop, you lose the dedication to come back to meditation, you never return, because Cain met you in the field and he killed you.
That which is the lower mind is always there, it will never die, when creation, when Heaven and Earth is consummated, Cain the left carnal mind will be there, because if it was not there, you would never have reason to know that you should grow, Cain is that reminder that you should grow.
No matter how masterful you become, no matter who you are, Cain will always be lurking in that field and if he catches you unprepared and alone he will kill you.
You will always find a reason not to meditate and you will find a reason why you should stay away and Cain will make that clear.
Genesis Chapter 4:8
And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Cain talks to you, the carnal mind always talks to you, you don’t just decide you should not do something anymore, you are given reason not to by Cain, and you have been killed by your brother.
It is your carnal mind that kills the divine in you. But the carnal mind is important you cannot live without it.
Look what it says:
Genesis Chapter 4:14
Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth: and from thy face shall I be hid: and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth: and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
Here again you can recognise that this is an allegory, it is symbolic, when Cain says to God, that ‘every one that findeth me shall slay me’, ask yourself how many times can one die. If everyone will kill Cain, you are not a person who can only die once, you are representing something.
There will always be that part of you, that Cain, because without that you cease to exist as a functional human being. You are always going to have a Cain, that left side, you don’t want to lose the left side thoughts, this is what gives you life’s challenges and pleasures, you want to have all that but you need to learn how to give control to the right side, the divine, the God side.
Representatively in the Bible the left is the wife, and the right is the husband that is what it means to have the wife be a subject to the husband, that which is the mind or the emotional nature must be subjected to that that is the Spirit.
Here is another passage that indicates this is not a real story?
Genesis Chapter 6:1-4
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair: and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the LORD said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days: and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
The sons of God are that which are the positive thoughts, that is the thoughts emanating from the spiritual side, the daughters of men are the desires of the emotions, when you mix or intercourse that which is the spiritual aspect of the higher mind with that which are the desires from the lower mind what you get is a thing called – religion. However what you have are the giants. You have constructed that, nothing but the flesh, magnified, larger and larger of the concentration of that that is the physical. You can never have the mix, when you intercourse the right side and the left side you will have the emotional nature that moves into the spiritual nature and this is the basis of religion. You have women with scarfs on their heads, you have women with veils on their face, you have to kneel here and bow there, you are given to do all of this physical conditioning because your emotional nature is attuned into your spiritual nature. So when the sons of God your divine thoughts, your aspects from the right side are intercoursing with the left side then you have all the confusion and certainly the World is a very confusing place, and you cannot have it that way.
The children the lower emotional thoughts move into to a place of confusion with the emphasis on the physical. And allegorically it says this:
Genesis Chapter 6:6
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Which means, inside of you this has not worked, why because you did not listen, it says “take no thought”, but you had to use what you had and it was not going to work unless your own conditions were met, and you get into all of this confusion and you are on an endless quest to find out. You never realise it is because you have had an intercourse with your own mind, your own ideas, your own direction. Instead of being a pure virgin, and comprehending that only when you are a pure virgin inside of yourself, the child, the Christ Child can be born.
So what has happened to you, you are now the Earth, which is your lower mind, what will be necessary to get all of that debauchery out of you?
All of that that has come from you intercoursing your lower mind with your Spirit, you have to be cleansed, you have to move from the Earth the first stage of consciousness into the second stage of consciousness which is water.
There has to be a baptism and so it says in the Bible, representatively God will bring a flood you will be cleansed you will rise yourself in consciousness, from that point you will rise up to the mountain top which will be represent the air the third stage of consciousness, where you will be touched by that which is the fire the Spirit the fourth stage of consciousness.
Then there will be new life the fifth stage of consciousness, then you will be reborn, then you will bear the Christ Child within you.
