The life of Adam and Eve before the Fall was life in a celestial state of consciousness which enabled them to see the spiritual essence of the Universe and to have a perception of the whole of Creation as a Garden of Paradise. They were allowed to eat the fruits from all trees in the Garden of Paradise except the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. By eating the fruits of the trees in the Garden of Paradise, Adam and Eve enjoyed the wonderful spiritual taste of all three worlds in Creation. After eating the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, Adam and Eve fell from the celestial state of consciousness to the restricted material consciousness limited by earthly conditions. The Fall actually was a descent from life in the second, celestial, world of the three-fold structure of the Universe to the first, material, world. This world is based on the fundamental principle of struggling polarities – spirit and matter, good and evil, joy and suffering, etc. Entry into this world is symbolised by eating the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
