Love & Work “Wisdom From the Ancients”

Genesis 2:5

“Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no MAN to work the GROUND,”

The Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for the word “Love” is a man with a hoe bent over and imagestilling the land. He is cultivating the ground in order to cause the crop to grow and manifest. A very different perception from our westernized notion of love, which is sort of a warm fuzzy feeling of attraction for someone which we fall in and out of frequently. This ancient Egyptian notion of love demonstrates that work or effort is implicit in the true concept of love. Not meaning that emotion and feeling isn’t involved, rather there is much more to it after those initial feelings have left. Authentic love is the work that is put into something or the effort you place into maintaining a connection with someone else. Love is not blind. It is directed with the purpose of creating the result of a flourishing crop that will then feed and sustain you.

In the Above Scripture the word in bold for man is “ADAM“, and the word in bold for ground is “ADAMAH” which is the root word for man. So when it says that there was no man “ADAM” to work the ground “ADAMAH”, its talking about the need or desire for a man to exist who could evolve himself by working on the grounds of his own consciousness, to bring forth a flourishing crop…
