when we were infants in the garden, with no
thought to be anything other than ourselves,

we lived in the sanctuary of One, without even
knowing it. There was neither good or bad nor
right or wrong. The world was whole.

And whatever we made was a masterpiece.

empty wall. A picture would be splendid here.

discovery - the discovery - that he could do
something wrong.

himself acceptable, so that he could return home.
