Why Bite the Fruit?

What if we choose to explore our sensuality and sexuality with heightened awareness? When Adam and Eve bite the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, they become self-aware, no longer oblivious to their nakedness. They begin to see the world as it truly is. Should this allegory be about sexual instruction, then the term bite the fruit is a euphemism for a sexual epiphany. We bite the fruit to become enlightened. We make ourselves available to a new way of thinking, a new perspective or attitude about our passions, about pleasure and intimacy. We consciously move towards love, eroticism and spirituality. We experience freedom and courage to venture beyond what we know.
