Why was it important to change the story of Cain & Abel?
It has become more evident that the stories depicted in the bible are very important. And it’s not so much because what these stories are, but more because of what they are not.
The stories depicted in the holy bible are not just stories to be taken lightly and tossed aside as a mere fairytale. And they are not stories to be taken as gospel and followed blindly. Somewhere in between we shall find the imbalance in the universe that has haunted us for far too long.
The fact is that human beings have been using these stories to manipulate one another for thousands of years. Why? Because we keep falling for it. The trap simply works. We just want to believe in something. So we believe in the stories told to us when we were kids. Generation after generation. Like an everlasting, cosmic game of telephone.
Now it’s gotten to the point where humanity has been buying and selling the same old stories for such a long time that we’ve taken them personally. So personal that we’re willing to kill each other over them.
That’s right, because of these stories, we have rationalized murder. We almost got away with it too. Well, not really. We just thought we could get away with it. The truth is, no one ever gets away with anything.
Believing we can get away with things is the only reason we do the things we wouldn’t do if we knew it would be exposed.
This is the main takeaway from the Original Cain & Abel story. As the story goes, Cain becomes so jealous and angry that he murders his brother in cold blood. When confronted by God, Cain denies the truth and claims to not know where his brother is.
He lied to God because He didn’t know who God was. He just heard a voice in his head and assumed it was God. Little did he know, he was lying to himself the entire time.
This is something left unsaid that leads the reader to assume that the voice of God comes from the heavens. But if that were the case, everyone else would be able to here the voice of God too.
The voice of God comes from within Cain’s being. Which represents Cain’s awareness of Himself. And so when he lied to God He was actually lying to Himself.
Cain didn’t know who God was. Which is why he sacrificed the older, uglier vegetation from his garden, and saved the best for himself and his family.
It is not until after Abel clears up the misunderstanding for him, that he realizes that God is within him and he had been giving his best to God all along.
This is when Cain drops to his knees and begs for his brother’s fogginess. For he hadn’t realized what he was doing.
Abel was easy and fast to forgive him because he knew something was wrong and he was willing to fight to expose the truth.
With the old story, we have been lead to believe that nobility is a weakness. After all, Abel was portrayed to be so weak that he just died without putting up a fight when attacked by Cain.
In the new version, Abel knew who He was and what He was made of. He was confident, disciplined and composed within himself.
And so when Abel saw his brother acting erratically, he nipped it in the bud and subdued him until Cain calmed down enough to talk things out.
He controlled the situation with minimal violence and without hurting anyone physically.
And so, Abel goes down in ourstory as mankind’s greatest role model because he didn’t reflect back the violence and anger Cain was portraying.
Instead, he breaks the program and writes in his own code. The highest and most noble code of conduct possible. Where he creates a new pattern of behavior for humanity. The pattern of standing up and fighting for what one believes in. This is true nobility.
He acts in kindness and generosity. And still manages to be strong and exhibit force where needed.
Cain also goes down in ourstory as one of our greatest heroes. For he was humble enough to recognize when he was wrong and completely owned his mistakes. He changed his mind and was proud of it. He wasn’t embarrassed or shamed because of it.
So Cain and Abel go on to build great cities together. And everywhere they went they have big events where they share their story of triumph over the simple misunderstanding that almost caused a lifetime of confusion and suffering.
Mankind then becomes the ascendants of men who stood boldly and fought swiftly for what they believed in.
No longer are we the descendants of a man who killed his brother in cold blood and then was haunted by his own demons for all of time.
This creates a new direction and a new destination for humanity. That’s why it’s called, destiny. We are destined for a great ascension into the greatest existence we can imagine for ourselves. Under no jurisdiction outside our own.
This wipes away history and allows us focus on ourstory. A story of conscious cause-and-effect. A story of great triumph. After all, we don’t even know who he is or why we keep repeating his story. That means we can let it go. It has served it’s purpose and now we can move forward past it with a clear vision as to who we are, what we’re made of, where we come from and where we’re going.
It is not my vision to brainwash and program our kids with a new story. It is my vision to see that our kids know all the stories. And that they see them for what they are. Just stories. So that they can think deliberately for themselves, make up their own minds about how history effects them and they can create their own story to the best of their ability.
Showing children as many perspectives as possible and without bias is the most efficient way to creating an everlasting, abundant future for all life on planet Earth. The new Earth we all deserve.
