Jesus, the Ego-less Archetype

“It’s not my fault”

Returning to the story about the Garden of Eden: we find Adam and Eve were confronted with their failures. It didn’t take but a moment for Adam to throw Eve under the bus. (Some things never change, right?) “The woman you gave me is to blame,” he told God. Adam’s line of defense was clear: I’m a victim. It’s not my fault. It’s Eve’s fault, and it’s your fault because you gave her to me.
