The Change from Mental to Mortal Form

The Bible states, "I formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." Our soul is the Creator's desire. The soul attracted to it the various elements of life substance (dust) and atom by atom, and cell by cell, in time created a mold and brought it into material form. In other words, a psychic outer covering eventually manifested. Once the psychic form was created, the soul, an attribute of God, breathed life into the nostrils (from within) and we made our first appearance as a human being...a living soul.

The idea was for the mental/psychic form to materialize in matter containing all of the attributes, powers and possibilities of the Divine. We have the innate power to use any or all of the attributes. This was the only reason that the Creator brought us into human expression. We are self-conscious beings who looked to a higher Power for inspiration and guidance. This is how it was in the beginning before we forgot our true identity. When researchers write and speak about the Garden of Eden and the Edenic state of mind, they are referring to the original expression here on Earth.

The Edenic state was actually a Celestial or Impersonal Consciousness, a state of mind where we were still consciously One with our Creator. This actually occurred when we were in our first mortal form. What happened after our initial Earth expression was to fall into a deep sleep. A close of a cycle occurred and we are still asleep until that moment arrives when we become wholly conscious of the Divine within. From the highest spiritual perspective, humanity had to experience the Dream condition in order to develop a mortal mind and the ability to desire. Desire and Will supply the motives and power for us to evolve and complete the Creator's expression in matter.
