I was reading Proverbs 3 yesterday and it occurred to me that there could be an esoteric meaning to this verse “By wisdom He founded the earth, by understanding He established the heavens”.
Psalm 104 says that Wisdom/Love has marked boundaries so that the sea would no longer encroach on the living space of humankind on earth. What if the flood in Genesis was an allegory, rather than a literal event?
Suppose the earth refers to our lower consciousness or our physical body or realm, and the heavens refers to our higher consciousness, and we learnt that during the time of Noah (rest), the angels intermarried with earth women and produced giants – this could be a picture of thoughts developing in the lower consciousness that rebelled against the highest nature of humanity.
So God (our highest self who is also Love) decided to send a flood to destroy these rebellious thoughts and preserved only Noah and his family – Noah could represent the perfect man – fully grown man to the stature of Christ our true identity, blameless and righteous and innocent.
So perhaps back then, the flood could represent the renewal of mind for humankind through a paradigm shift of the lower consciousness – perhaps it was so drastic that the earthly mind became unconscious or fainted for a period of time before the flood subsided, and humankind regained consciousness after those rebellious thought-angels were destroyed.
And then God or Love swore that He would never flood the earth again and marked the boundary of the sea, to not cause our lower consciousness to faint again, so to speak. It foreshadows the coming of Christ, the revelation or parousia, when as in the days of Noah, the old identity would be utterly destroyed and the new identity remains in the collective consciousness of humankind in the new kingdom where there is no end.
Such is the power of love to reconcile us to our highest self.
