We cannot come to ourselves without leaving the culture behind. The return to Eden meant death to those entering the Land of Promise. That would be the death Jesus died before his death on the cross-- the metaphorical/symbolic death in Gethsemane, with "Thy will, not mine, be done." We, like Jesus, have to die to all that stands between us and Eden, home, the Promised Land, oneness with That Which Has Always Been Called God. The exit from Eden leads to Gethsemane, which is the doorway back to Eden. Living to ourselves means dying to the culture-- to all the culture proclaims to be important, to all the things Adam and Eve thought they were getting when they left Eden. We have to die to all of that in going back to Eden. Start by cutting off your TV. Engaging emptiness, stillness and silence. Finding the balance point among all aspects of life, and living there, bearing the pain of the contradictions and the bliss of the harmonies and the rhapsodies. Making the trade-offs, saying "No!" to what needs to be "No!" and saying "Yes!" to what needs to be "Yes!" no matter what all our life long.
