The Universe in an Hourglass: A Time for Everything
the end there would be no separation. All ene mies would turn into ne ighbors, and all ne ighbors would
be welcomed as family. Till then the seeds needed time to grow.
After everyone had eaten every emotiona l fruit from the tree of complete separation, there was every
degree of partial separation (conditiona l love) to explore as a possibility. The body still craved
substance, the mind still craved knowledge, and the individua l still craved emotions. So eve ryone and
everything unfolded in every possible direction and dimension, and explored the possibility of
conditional love by eating the fruit from the tree of partia l separation.
The feeling of be ing partia lly separated from everything is not true outside of an individual’s early
perception. At one point the be lief in partia l separation was perceived to be the truth, and so that
perception became reality for everyone within everything. Every emotiona l fruit that hung from the tree
of partia l separation (conditional love) was unhea lthy. The feeling of partia l separation, over time ,
created every individua l emotion that was bad (a combination of good and evil emotions).
When partia l separation was perceived to be the truth, the children were fed from the same tree that
the ir parents were eating from, and so there was conditiona l love given physica lly, menta lly, and
emotiona lly. Love was shown to what was acceptable and no love was shown to what was
unacceptable. But when no love was prescribed to part of an ind ividua l, as the cure, it actua lly damaged
the whole individua l. The mome nt conditiona l love was given was the moment all children became
partially separated from the ir parents, but they no longer fe lt complete ly separated. The children were
then given c lothes (the conditiona l teachings-menta l conditiona l love). The tree was no longer poison,
but it was unhealthy. Only a few leaves fell onto the ground, which only provided partia l protection for
the seeds. After physica l and menta l conditiona l love were absorbed, the seeds were given unhea lthy
water (emotiona l conditiona l love). The seeds and the parents had been wounde d; they were only
partially hea led, and so there was scarring menta lly, emotiona lly, and physica lly. The very moment
conditional love was first given was the very moment the first ne ighbor was created mentally and
emotiona lly. When the children were partia lly kicked out of the ir home , they went and searched for
the ir own garde n, and both the parents and the children physica lly became the first ne ighbors.
Because no love had evolved into conditiona l love , what had previously been perceived as the truth
(kill or be killed) evolve d into give me what is good and I will give you what is good or else an eye -for-
an-eye-and-tooth-for-a-tooth menta lity. No love was certain death; conditiona l love increased the
length of surviva l.
When conditiona l love was give n, that meant there was the possibility that partia l separation
(conditiona l love-neighbor) could turn into complete separation (no love-enemy) for every parent and
child, then, now, and in the future. The door to no love was still open, and it would lead to the fall of
the whole body when it was walked through.
There is, was, and will be a time for evolving, and there is, was, and will be a time for devolving. If
no love is called zero (not absolute zero), conditiona l love starts at one, then falls back down to zero,
then counts up to two, the n falls back down to zero, and counts up to three. So on and off, then down
and up, everyone within everything rose, fe ll, and then rose aga in.
At that point in the evolution of emotions, there was only conditiona l love for ne ighbors and no love
for enemies. Unconditiona l love had yet to be explored by individua ls. Everyone tried to defeat what
they hated in themse lves and the ir childre n with the ir weapons of conditiona l love and no love. First
there were small wars of separation from the enemy, and afterwards neighbors would return home, and
there was partial peace. But out of the category ne ighbor came more enemies, and as the population
