Oil and Water: The Man and The Woman

The more open we are with one another, the more we will learn from one another. We are learning the balance between the opposites that God has put in the world; having a respect for what God has designed, reveals His hidden truths.

God’s Opposites Are Like Oil and Water

If we learn to respect the way God has designed the world and us, that is when His truths will be revealed as we then see how everything has its proper place.

Everything is balanced.

God reveals Himself in opposites: spiritual versus physical, darkness versus light, good versus bad, man versus woman. The man versus woman opposite is much like the relationship of Jews versus Gentiles. They are all deep love relationships, like marriages. It is all about finding God’s compliment by respecting each other. There is a balance in everything as these relationships should be appreciated, but do not mix.

They are like oil and water.

In The Garden

The theme is Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. There are two trees: One tree is called the tree of life, this is Adam. The other tree is called the tree of good and evil, who is Eve.

I wrote the poem In The Garden last year. I wrote it very quickly not really even understanding it myself, at the time. I was writing my book We Are One. I believe this poem was inspired by God and the idea of it makes more sense to me now.

Below you will see this poem made into a reading by Matthew Toffolo. If you are interested in having one of your poems made into a Youtube video, his work is professional and is reasonably priced. You can contact Matthew here. He will also interview you about your poem and post it on his blog. You can see my interview here.

I really like this poem and hope others will be encouraged by it as it encourages me. I speak further about this poem in everything that I write. I believe that Adam and Eve are now the Jews and the Gentiles. Their relationship is much like the man and the woman. We learn together like all the other opposites: darkness versus light, physical versus spiritual, good versus bad. Then there is the man and the woman. When we learn the Divine love; relationship and its balance, that is when we see God and know His truths.

I want to give the world hope that there is more to life than just the mundane. We are all interconnected and if we understand our deeper, truer selves; we would identify with a passionate love for one another to finally be content about who we really are.
