Two BECOMING ONE
This is a crucial concept that is repeated in various forms throughout the Gnostic Mass. The state of “samadhi” is achieved in meditation, and it is said to be characterized by the union and dissolution of the subject and object in formless, non-dual ecstasy. Crowley likens the word “samadhi” to the phrase “union/together [sam] with God [adhi, like ‘Adonail.” This is duality (subject and object) becoming unity (samadhi), and it is often mentioned with the phrase “union of opposites.” The term “samadhi” is used but there are many names. As a process of the Two or Many becoming One, this has been called samadhi,’ satori or kensho,’ union of opposites, unity with God,” Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Ange’ becoming the Way,” liberation or moksha, ” enlightenment,” the Great Work,’ the Quest for the Holy Grail,’ henosis,’ nirvana,’ and many other terms. As an object or image of the Goal, it is the Stone of the Wise,’ the Philosopher’s Stone or the Gold at the center of the Dross,’ the Divine Nectar/Amrita or the Elixir of Immortality/Life,’ the “hidden wealth of secret places,’ Godhead,’ the Heavenly Dew.
That gnosis of samadhi, being a gnosis which is self – aware of each [ thing ]
Awake on these levels , the soul becomes master of the ranges of gnostic thought , gnostic will , gnostic delight , and if it can do this in Samadhi , it may carry its memory of experience and its power of experience even into the waking state. This is world union.
GNOSIS , the fire which burns up the straw of desire and hope , is all that is meant by the word Samadhi
The Gnostics called it acquiring the wisdom of Sophia, Sophia being a name for the celestial being who is and oversees cosmic intelligence, the goddess of wisdom who has the knowledge of everything in the cosmos—when it started, why, what’s going on, who’s doing what and why, and how long it all is going to last. Others called it Christ Consciousness, and the process of retrieving it was once called gnosis (hence, Gnostic), which is direct revelation, unmediated by dogma or human intermediaries.
Not knowing this, lacking the cosmic intelligence, having no gnosis, living with spiritual amnesia, is squatting in a blown-out building with the Wounded Fisher King. Here’s another way to look at the reason for Light temples on Earth. From his studies of myths around the world, Mircea Eliade reflected that while the gods may live a very long time, up into the hundreds of millions of years, they are not free.
They cannot achieve the exquisite, total freedom that only humans can and that is called samadhi or nirvana. “When a god wishes to ‘free himself,’ he must first become incarnate, that is, take on the ‘human condition.”
The Earth has been equipped with a marvelous responsive, mirroring device called the visionary geography that provides a perfect environment in which to achieve this “absolute freedom,” Eliade indicates. The planet’s Light grid comprises the distributed “body” of that awakening into freedom; samadhi is the potential total impact of all the different Light temples. The Earth was designed with the structures of this sympathetic magic to induce freedom.
Another key reason for all the sacred sites and Light temples is that they are functional parts of the planet’s spiritual physiology. They create and maintain the biosphere. They create and nurture the human as a sentient life form.
Breaking through the ontological amnesia is gnosis, getting the picture direct.
Discovering the nature of our designer planet and how to interact with it is taking the lid off things. The “works” is the Earth’s visionary geography and Light grid. It was designed to facilitate the serial retrieval of deep cosmic memory so we may answer the question. The variety of Light temples are the means to recollect ourselves across time and space because these Light temples are carefully designed to be Mystery revelation centers, places where we may reclaim a portion of ourselves at the cosmic level.
We need to construe human identity in larger than normal terms; not only have we had many past lives and not only have they been initiated and coor-dinated by our Higher Self or eternal soul, but even this fullness of being is a frag-ment of a larger fullness. Reconnecting with this fullness is the purpose of using the Earth’s Light temples.
Man is a mind in the living body . Man is an ideal blend of Matter , Life and Mind. Since, Mind is finite, he is bestowed with limited powers of Consciousness. Beyond Mind is the Supermind , the gnostic power of consciousness , which is in eternal possession of the Truth.
He is capable of projecting the Earth – element alone ; namely , fiery his immortality , or super – human power , earth , airy earth , watery earth , earthy or åtmic radiance . earth . This Great Four is the Tetraktys Thus an Eagle is one capable of rising of the Pythagoreans — the “ Fourfold Root into the true Air and looking straight of Everflowing Nature ” -in one of its at his own Sun.
The Gnostic is a not a physical one, a ‘ great soul ‘ whose body Gnostic because he knows , by revelation , was made not of matter but of light . He was who his true self is. ‘ Similarly, the Manicreated to restore the fallen sparks of light cheans. This super Mana was the power which guarded the stition was found in many parts of the world.
It commands a new birth , promises a new heart . It is new wine , new cloth , a new commandment; to its followers is promised a new name; they shall sing a new song. They long for the New Jerusalem, a new heavens and a new earth, yes!
Their higher frequency simply shifts the centre of force a degree upward within the body, perhaps making the new body just that much larger than the one we now know.
The higher and lower self: individuality and personality Following the classic Indian views, theosophists believe in rhyth-mic world manifestations, manrantaras, alternated with periods of cosmic sleep, prakyas. When a manrantara begins, the elementary individual spirits, called monads after Leibniz, awaken. They are will-ing to endure the trying exertions of the physical universe. They learn to become creators themselves in matter, ultimately to be-come co-creators of the next universe.
Monads develop gradually. ‘They start with many mineral lifetimes, and they gradually ascend, via plant and animal lives, to human lives. This development is an involution as well as an evolution. The monad begins as a spiritual being, far removed from its physical counterpart. As this physical counterpart gradually evolves into a vehicle of consciousness, and into a human being, the monad gradually involves, to inhabit and to meld into the person with his physical body, and so, finally gains self-consciousness.
Each great manvantara consists of smaller cycles in which manifestation and rest periods alternate. At the beginning of smaller manvantaras planets come about where the monads can take the next step in their evolution. Our present humankind went through less dense material conditions in its previous mineral, plant, and animal stages of monadic evolution. The human body is prepared from the higher mammals. Before the monad descends for the first
Once we have become human, we continue our development under our own responsibility. Ultimately, we will return to our spiritual origin, but now self-aware and with a fully evolved body. From where we are now, our further evolution is toilsome, with the ever-present risk of entanglement in matter or in our ego. Our personal will as incarnated human beings is both a seduction and a cardinal result of evolution.
The abyss of being and nothingness are one and the same. In other words, the unity of presence and identity in the gnostic myth lies in the acceptance of the common loss of both. This insight into ourselves—into the common nonentity of our presence and identity—is what the “rising” of the savior comes to mean in the gnostic savior accounts.
