Awake in the Garden

Awake in the Garden
Jeffrey Backstrom

“Wake up My Little One; you are having a bad dream.”

“Oh, we were kicked out! They said we have to leave the garden.”

“Ahh, Sweetheart, we still have the garden; it is always our home.”

“But our Father was angry with our Mother. He said we must leave; he said she must not climb the tree; he said she may not taste the fruit.”

“Who told you such a story, my Dear? Your Father and Mother love each other and they love us as well. They have created the garden for us, out of that love.”

“The serpent was bad, in my dream. He showed our Mother the fruit, and she ate it, and our Father was angry, and made us leave.”

“It’s alright my Little One; everything is alright. The serpent is meant to climb the tree, and the fruit is for all of us to share. This dream is only a story meant to fool us. You can dream a different dream. Whoever tells you such stories, ignore them. You know our Father and Mother in your heart; you know they love us. Why would He give us these gifts, and then deny them to us? Someone has told you this story, but that person had selfish motives.”

It was only a dream, My Love. Dream a different dream.
