“The rulers went to meet her, intending to lead her astray. Their supreme chief said to her, “Your mother Eve came to us.” But Norea turned to them and said to them, “It is you who are the rulers of the darkness; you are accursed. You did not know my mother. Instead it was your own female that you knew. For I am not your descendant. Rather, it is from the world above that I am come.”
“The arrogant ruler turned with all his might, and his countenance was like a blazing fire. He said to her presumptuously, “You must service us, as did also your mother Eve. . . .”But Norea turned with power and, in a loud voice, she cried out up to the holy one, the God of all, “Rescue me from the rulers of unrighteousness and save me from their clutches—at once!” The great angel came down from the heavens and said to her, “Why are you crying up to god? Why do you act so boldly toward the holy spirit?” Norea said, “Who are you?” The rulers of unrighteousness had withdrawn from her. He said, “I am Eleleth, sagacity, the great angel who stands in the presence of the holy spirit. I have been sent to speak with you and save you from the grasp of the lawless. And I shall teach you about your root.” ~from The Reality Of The Rulers
Norea is the daughter of Adam and Eve in some Gnostic scripture. But she represents more than that. She is a symbol of all who resist the fallen angels—the Demiurge. She symbolizes all of us who awaken to some degree and recognize the dark beings for what they are and the world of illusion for what it is.
It is interesting that some Gnostic books chose to use a women to symbolize this. It is certainly shocking to those who believe the main-stream churches claim that Christianity has always been led by men. They need to read “When Women Were Priests” by Karen Torjesen and learn the truth. Women often had important roles in early Christianity. Especially among the Gnostic groups.
Contrary to what confused materialists believe, the “Rulers” are not God. They are rulers only in the dimensions of matter. They are the fallen angels, the dark beings. Their greatest power is in convincing people that they are the only God and there is nothing above the realm of matter. Norea called them on that claim.
The dark Rulers demanded that Norea serve them. She refused, Instead, she called upon the true God for assistance and protection. An angel came to assist her and protect her. She is setting an example for all of us to follow. Simply because we have fallen into the realm of matter, the kingdom of the dark ones, doesn’t mean we have to serve them. If we do, we will sink even lower. If we defy them, we can climb back up to spiritual dimensions where we belong. We all have the same choice Norea had. Choose wisely.
Teach About Your Root
The angel that appeared to Norea promised to teach her about her root. But didn’t she already know where she was born? Didn’t she know who her parents were? Yes, but those are only the top level of her roots. Her real roots go much deeper. They lie in the real of spirit. Spirit is where we all came from. Spirit is where we will all return to. But no one can tell you all of that in detail. You must see it for yourself. All a spiritual teacher can do is show you how to awaken and develop your spiritual Self. Beyond that, you must learn the truth of yourself, and many other things, yourself. If you look for truth only in books, you will get only the most superficial teachings. The deeper ones are never written down.
