The Blood of Eden ~ There is No Separation

Perhaps you have read and watched the movie, The Da Vinci Code, and found out that what is missing is the female essence. Perhaps you know this deep within you, you may have read it somewhere else, experienced it another way…let’s take a look deeper. We grew up with the story of Adam and Eve, with the message that it was the woman that turned Adam to “disobeying” the rule of not searching for knowledge…many of us now know that the real error or “sin” here was looking outside of ourselves for answers when the truth is that all we need to know is within, all knowing comes from within. So, there was a story created, to invoke the idea of separation, the separation of the woman and the man, the divine male energy and female energy. This lie is what created within us, as humans, to believe that not only are we separated from our divine counterpart, the other energy that is so naturally a part of us, but that we are separated from God and from absolutely everything we perceive in our human life experience.

Within this song, the Blood of Eden, by Peter Gabriel, he talks about how this blood, this feeling of separation has caused so much sadness, so much destruction that did not need to be…that the ones who created this story did so out of an attempt at controlling us, those within religion, those within higher power, hand in hand, wanting to control. They were afraid that if we knew the truth and connected to our internal, inherent divine power of creating anything in our lives we desire, by merging our energy with the opposite energy within us as well as in direct physical relationship, we would not be able to be controlled. It is now time…as all along, what we have always wanted, was the union, the union of the woman and the man, but also the union of all…as we are not separated from each other, from God or from anything else. Everything is one with the essence of love, of being.

Peter Gabriel – Blood of Eden lyrics

I caught sight of my reflection
I caught it in the window
I saw the darkness in my heart
I saw the signs of my undoing
They had been there from the start
And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord’s untying
They’re heated and they’re holy
Oh they’re sitting there on high
So secure with everything they’re buying

[Chorus:]
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
We wanted the union
Oh the union of the woman
The woman and the man

My grip is surely slipping
I think I’ve lost my hold
Yes, I think I’ve lost my hold
I cannot get insurance anymore
They don’t take credit, only gold
Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see
You hold so tightly in your hand
And all the while the distance grows between you and me
I do not understand

[Chorus]

At my request, you take me in
In that tenderness, I am floating away
No certainty, nothing to rely on
Holding still for a moment
What a moment this is
Oh for a moment of forgetting, a moment of bliss
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden
We wanted the union
Of the woman and the man

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
And the woman in the man

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
And the woman in the man

In the blood of Eden
We’ve done everything we can
In the blood of Eden
Saw the end as we began
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
It was all for the union
Oh, the union of the woman, the woman and the man.
