Ancient Man lived in a natural state of consciousness. In this state concept like the good and bad, perfect and the imperfect did not exist. Every action was an end in itself. He never sought a purpose to his life or the Universe. Every experience was complete and total. These wise men and women were in communication with the divine. They were guided about an ensuing famine or flood, medicine for an epidemic or the right time for swing seeds by cosmic consciousness.
However, due to multiplicity of factors, man moved away from his natural state and from the transcendental. Thus set in the alienation from God !
