By virtue of having been born into your body, you have become a recognizable being. You have separated yourself from the great all… You have fallen out of the divine, paradisaical state…into the world of many forms and differentiations.

You have become a manifestation, a created form. Consequently everything you are…is…made up of good and evil. And since your consciousness has been placed in your body, you have awakened in this body, that is, your consciousness has become identical with the body. …[For] to eat something is to become identical with it; for what you eat is what you will consist of, what you will be.

Through identifying itself with your body, your consciousness has- symbolically- eaten of the fruits of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and by the same token become subject to the kingdom of death. …But now listen to the good news: Your body is the result of separation; it is only the visible half of your own true self. By uniting these two complementary halves with each other, you can return to divine unity! …As long as a creature seeks its complementary half outside itself, in the created, recognizable world, it will never find unity, simply because its complementary half isn’t outside itself, manifested, separate from itself, but on the contrary, unseparated from itself, in its own unmanifested part, in its unconscious! …

Through this union which takes place in your consciousness, the eternal longing of your manifested being ceases because it has found its complementary half and merged into unity with it. …You become complete within yourself. …you experience the divine state: Immortality, bliss…!

And in as much as the same one, individual being, lives in all creatures, you simultaneously become identical with the true self of every creature when you awaken to your own true self. …You will feel yourself as the ‘I’- the self- in every creature, in the entire universe, in God. This means you will again be eating of the fruit of the tree of life!… in short, you will have achieved your resurrection in eternal being. And that is initiation!

great book, read it a few times!

i agree with everything stated above and would say it this way:

imo, the purpose of taking on a body is for the individualized portion of the Whole, to take on a seeming separateness from the One (which is an illusion) so that the individualized portion of the whole One can realize itself as One self fully sustained self.  so that every cell or atom can itself realise complete Oneness with the All and within itself complete. or as Moses and Jesus stated:

Deuteronomy 6:4

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.  (one with the whole and One as the self) or The LORD our God is One, God is one LORD
