Adam & the Tree: Dante’s Paradiso Canto XXVI

The first human, Adam, tells Dante that the tree in the Garden of Eden from which he and Eve ate was not a bad tree. It was good, as all creation is. The Fall resulted from violating God’s decree to not eat. A limit, only one, was placed for Adam and Eve to obey. And they, like we, could not abide it.

Happiness requires not getting everything you want.

Wholeness requires sacrifice.
