Having "fallen" from grace, we walk under shadow in the valleys of materialism, the domain of ego and the body with which it identifies.
The Fall is precipitated by the weight of innocence and the absence of viscosity in a non-personalized supra-amorphic state.
The quest is not to regain previous exaltation, but to bring something to it found only in knowing ourselves through the attracting force of ego, making concrete the mystery and abstractions of the unconscious. The gods gave us fire, we return with the elements transfixed in our hearts.
In this sense, what pushed us from grace into ego also pulls us back into grace from ego. If grace is the throne of God before the fall, and shadow is our seat of creativity after the fall, then the individuated being knows both grace and shadow, reconciled as one.
