Mary’s saintly obedience highlights Eve’s sinful disobedience when she ate from the Tree of Knowledge. Some believe that Adam and Eve existed only in Yezirah, a realm of images and dreams, in this world no experience or growth could take place. It was The Fall that gave humankind free-will and the ability to make choices but it also lead to our fixation with women’s sin. The book of Genesis says that there was another important tree in the garden of Eden, the Tree of Life. The Kabbalah sees the Tree of Life as the map back home to the psychological paradise of Eden.
