Most are familiar with the Bible's account of how Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden Tree of Knowledge and caused death to enter the world. Few are familiar with how the Jewish mystical tradition explains this holy tale, deriving from it a wealth of enlightened teachings.
Kabbala teaches that the events related in the first two chapters of Genesis did literally happen, but that they transpired on an entirely different plane of reality than what we experience as the physical world today. Until Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, the lowest level of reality in the universe was the mental plane, which means that the bodies and objects of that era were actually more like thought forms. Adam and Eve were archetypal beings. They were not just humanity's founding couple; they actually contained within them the souls of all the people that would ever live.
When Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge reality transformed completely. It shattered and collapsed, eventually becoming our physical plane. Since we were all present as part of their souls, so too did we suffer the damaging effects of their actions. According to Kabbala, all illness, neuroses, personality imbalances, and existential failings trace back to that misdeed, which separated human beings from their holy root on high. The fallout from that fateful event continues to exert enormous impact on the entire human condition.
Each generation must contribute its fair share to this enormous project of cosmic repair. There are many tools at our disposal, a growing assortment of them. Yet there is one resource that has remained untapped until this very day.
It is a little known fact that homeopathy is a modern term for an ancient Biblical practice. Homeopathy describes a medical model based on the Law of Similars, most simply defined as “like cures like.” A homeopathic practitioner prescribes a particular remedy because its ingredients trigger the exact symptoms of the illness it aims to treat. And yet, its extreme dilution stimulates the life force to reassert itself with a certainty that it can now prevail in restoring balance. Perhaps the earliest recorded application of the Law of Similars to spiritual healing appears in the Bible's dramatic account of the golden calf:
Moses responded to the crisis presented by the golden calf as a medical emergency on the spiritual plane and applied homeopathic principles to remedy the situation. He took the idol itself, ground it to powder, diluted it in water, and administered this homeopathic solution to the people.
This same procedure could also be applied to cure the physical and spiritual maladies stemming from the Tree of Knowledge. If, as Kabbala asserts, the root of every complaint is that fateful moment when Adam ate the forbidden fruit, then that is the place to look for a homeopathic cure. If we could identify that Tree, we could produce a remedy that treats the deepest root of illness in the universe.
In fact, the Biblical Tradition supplies that information. It proposes nine competing theories as to the identity of the Tree of Knowledge and enigmatically concludes that all of them are true.
Based on these time-honored teachings, we present The Golden Thread , a homeopathically produced remedy designed to heal the deepest level of soul that was damaged by our collective partaking of the Tree of Knowledge. The Golden Thread assembles nine ingredients into a set of healing tinctures that work from the inside out. Taken alone or in tailored combinations, these medicinal drops provide a lifeline of healing influences that gently tug the soul back into line with its holy root on high.
