You see, Waking up isn’t about getting back into the Garden of Eden. It’s about getting back before the Garden of Eden, before the mist arose from the ground, before the whole story of an existence separate from God began, or seemed to begin.
No matter what great religious books you read, you will find attempts to account for existence. And so you will find a Creation story. The clearest account of Creation is in these words: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” So, that means the Word wasn’t you. And that means that you are the Word That Is God. It means that you are God in action, in Presence, in Being, right now. And that’s what Waking up is the discovery of.
