“Illuminator of Knowledge and the Fruit-Bearing Trees”

“Illuminator of Knowledge and the Fruit-Bearing Trees”

    “Once again, for the third time, the illuminator of knowledge passes by in great glory to leave some of the seed of Noah and the sons of Ham and Japheth—to leave fruit-bearing trees for himself. And he redeems their souls from the day of death. The whole creation that came from the dead earth will be under the authority [...]

“Dimensions of Matter and Spirit in a Multi-Dimensional Universe”

“Dimensions of Matter and Spirit in a Multi-Dimensional Universe”

      “The universe is made up of successive gradations of good, these gradations ascending from matter, (which is the least degree of good) to spirit (which is the greatest) degree of good). In man, his superior nature is the summum bonum. It therefore follows that his highest nature most readily recognizes good [...]

“Training and Understanding for Successful Spiritual Growth”

“Training and Understanding for Successful Spiritual Growth”

    “It is of course the training and the understanding that are an important factor in the use of the arcane arts such as astrology, sacred geometry, and, indeed, theurgy. And it is perhaps worth remembering that there was a time when mathematics was seen to be fairly miraculous. Interestingly, with the development of [...]

“Seven Aspects of God, a Complex Being”

“Seven Aspects of God, a Complex Being”

        “Seven kinds of action of Deity were perceived by Boehme, none of which were more important than the others. These were: Ungrund, the ungrounded, the hidden Mystery in all things, the transcendent aspect of Being. Primordial Divine Will, ‘Father,’ both no-thing and everything. Will made [...]

“Bonds of Matter Broken by Spirit and Truth”

“Bonds of Matter Broken by Spirit and Truth”

  Chained hands with clenched fists on a white background.   “Just as if a man were bound hand and foot with chains, and someone came and loosened his bonds, and let him walk free without interference, so the Lord looses from its bonds the soul that is bound with the chains of death, and lets it go, and sets the mind free to [...]

“Souls and the Divine Light of Heaven”

“Souls and the Divine Light of Heaven”

    “I said to the savior, Master, will all the souls then be led safely into pure light? He answered and said to me, These are great matters that have arisen in your mind, and it is difficult to explain them to anyone except those of the unshakable race. Those upon whom the spirit of life will descend and whom the spirit will [...]

“First Ray of the Spiritual Sun”

“First Ray of the Spiritual Sun”

      “When we say that people should lead pure, sacred and wise lives, we have in mind that they should tap the appropriate energies of the Sun. The more inspired the person, the greater the capacity to make contact with the Spiritual energies of the Sun. “The most luminous thought, the most sublime feeling and [...]

“Sleeping Soul Must Awaken Now”

“Sleeping Soul Must Awaken Now”

    “Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream! For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul. Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, Is our destined end or [...]

“Greater Light of Spirit, Lesser Light of Matter”

“Greater Light of Spirit, Lesser Light of Matter”

      “Reason will object and say, is it not right for a man to attain the Light of God, and also the light of the outward Nature and Reason, that he may be able to order his life wisely, as the scripture directs? “Yes, it is very right; nothing can be more profitable to a man, neither is he capable of nay thing [...]

“God’s Will and the Pure Soul”

“God’s Will and the Pure Soul”

    “You ask how one who desires to follow the movements of God’s Spirit may distinguish these movements, from the natural operations of the mind. There is not, at all times, a positive certainty regarding divine movements. It it were so, we should become infallible as the angels, that is, if we were pure in intentions. We [...]
