Christian Mysticism ???. Denies the Cross at times. Requires a strong Christian Discernment to follow, and to sort out the weeds in the wisdom.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 187915935X, Paperback)

"In the Garden, all our needs were provided for. We knew no struggle of hardship. We were God's beloved. But happiness was not enough for us. We wanted the freedom to live our own lives. To evolve, we had to learn to become love-givers, not just love-receivers. We all know what happened then. We were cast out of the Garden and for the first time in our lives we felt shame, jealousy, anger, lack. We experienced highs and lows, joy and sorrow. Our lives became difficulty. We had to work hard to survive. We had to make mistakes and learn from them. Initially we tried to blame others for our mistakes. But that did not make our lives any easier. It just deepened our pain and misery. We had to learn to face our fears, instead of projecting them onto each other. Returning to the Garden, we are different than we were when we left hellbent on expressing our creativity at any cost. We return humble and sensitive to the needs of all. We return not just as created, but as co-creator, not just as son of man, but also as son of God."
