Father's Light

Father’s Light That Awakens and Illuminates

Song 1: My Father Evoked Holy Fire

“My father the pleasured light,
the pleasured light, the glory,
my father the pleasured light,
the pleasure, the holy light,
my father the pleasured light,
the pleasure,
the esteemed light.

He summoned the aeons of light,
he chose them to enjoy his greatness.
He summoned the aeons of peace in whom no flaw or loss lives.
He summoned the aeons of light
and his sons in whom he put the aeons.
He summoned the aeons of peace.
He called his wealth,
set it in them.

He summoned the aeons to repose.
He called his angels,
set it in them.
He founded places for life.
He set living icons in them.
He set living icons in them,
which never disappear. …

“I couldn’t see where the son of evil saw them.
I stood up, saying,
I want to be like them.
Where did the son of evil see them?
Did the poor one own nothing?
No diamonds are in his possession,
no eternity in his estate. …

“A son of light looked down from high and saw him.
He said to rich brethren,
O my brethren,
sons of light in whom no flaw or loss lives,
I looked down into the abyss.
I saw the evil one,
the son of evil.
I saw the evil one, the son of evil,
who wanted to get into war.
I saw his seven companions too
and his twelve helpers.
I saw their tent pitched and a roaring fire in it.” ~The Coptic Manichaean Songbook

Father’s Light and Fire

In the ancient world, fire was used to provide light. As a result, when they said fire, they may have meant light. For example, the famous pillar of fire that led Moses was probably a pillar of light.

So the Father’s light is the spiritual light that comes from God. It may come to us through the stars and, primarily, the spiritual sun, but it originates with God. This is not the ordinary light of the physical world, although that light also has benefits on the physical level. It is a higher light, of a higher frequency and a higher level of consciousness.

Aeons of Light

Aeons (or eons) generally refer to a measurement of time. Specifically, a very long period of time, also known as an age. I believe this Manichaean song is using the word to mean something different. I think in this case, it means an arc angel or some similar high-level spiritual being. The song alternates between referencing Aeons of Light and Aeons of Peace. I believe they are the same beings. A being of light is automatically a being of peace. An angry, violent being is never a being of light.

Son of Evil

The singer of the song, whoever that might be, says he couldn’t see where the son of evil say them. It is not clear who he means by “them,” but I think it is the angels or Aeons mentioned previously. The singer says he wants to be like them. This would certainly make sense if he was talking about the angels, or Beings of Light.

But then the singer remarks on the poverty of someone. Poverty in a material sense, anyway. I think the singer is now referring to the Son of Evil. Yet the children of evil do have material possessions and plenty of them. So I think he is speaking in allegorical terms. Saying that he has no diamonds means that he has nothing of any great value. That is because material possessions have little value. Only spirit is permanent, so only spiritual things have true and lasting value. He Son of Evil once shared in the Father’s Light, but having fallen from truth, he could access that light no longer.

Son of Light

The sons of light did, of course, still bath in the Father’s Light. That id the only way to be a son or daughter of light.

The son of light in the song confesses that he has looked down into the abyss where he saw the son of evil. This tells us that the evil ones live in a place that the sons of light consider an abyss. An abyss is usually a deep hole or space. In this case, I think it means a lower dimension. A dimension which may only be one lower than the one the sons of light are in, but as far as they are concerned, it is far below them. Far below because it is mostly made of matter rather than spirit. It is also far below them because the Father’s light barely exists there.

Wanting War

When the son of light looked into the abyss at the son of evil, he saw that the son of evil and his helpers wanted war. Not war with each other, or with the sons of light. They are not foolish enough to fight each other. Nor would they attack the sons of light, knowing that would be a battle they could not possibly win. No, the evil ones plotted to cause wars among men, not each other.

One might assume that the sons of evil loved war and violence among humans simply because they were evil. Or perhaps because they found it great entertainment. While they may certainly have been part of it, there is something even more important.

Since the sons and daughters of darkness do not have access to the Father’s Light, they need another source of energy, another source of life. The source they use is blood, primarily human blood. The fairy tales of vampires and other dark beings that live off human blood are not entirely fantasies. They are based on the true tales of the children of evil who do live on blood.

A New Age

But the times are definitely changing. The Sun of Righteousness shines down upon us now. This spiritual sun brings more of the Father’s Light to us than ever before. It is easier now than ever for us to awaken. The bad news is that if we don’t all awaken soon, we will lose the opportunity. In this case, “soon” might mean ten years, or a hundred. No one on this level knows exactly. But it isn’t forever. So turn to the Father’s Light now.

Light Mind that Awakens the Soul

“ Now you understand that the powers of light are good and the beginning and the end are unveiled to them. Whatever they do is with good judgment. For this reason they allow the enmity.”

“The light mind comes and finds the soul and assumes it into wisdom. He will become for it . . . the bonds and members of the body. He will loosen the mind of the soul and release it from the bone. He will release the thought of the soul from sinew and bind the thought of sinew in sinew. He will release insight of the soul from the vein and bind insight of sin in the vein. He will loosen the counsel of the soul and release it from the flesh and so bind the counsel of sin in the flesh.”

“And the new man reigns by love, by faith, by perfection, by patience, and by wisdom. Yet his king is the light mind, who is king of all. He reigns over it as he wishes. The members’ sin is imprisoned, yet the light mind is king, and an affection often rises in the body.” ~The Kephalaia

Powers of Light

The phrase “powers of light” can be interpreted in two ways. It can refer to powerful beings of light who exist in higher realms of spirit and consciousness. It can also refer to the powers of light itself, both physical and spiritual.

In both cases, the powers of light are good. The beginning, the end, and everything in between is revealed to them. It is not a matter of time, although they do exist outside the limitations of time. It is that they know truth and wisdom. They know that spirit came before matter. They know that matter is a mistake. God didn’t create the realm of matter. It was created by the Demiurge, or the fallen angels. Continue reading “Light Mind that Awakens the Soul”

solar relationship, better life, awakened crowd

Solar Relationship of Man with the Spiritual Sun

“We will make an experiment with the sunlight. Let it speak to you: music is hidden within. No harmony of tones more sublime exists than that which emanates from the vibrations f the rays of the Sun.

“When you want to benefit from the energies of nature, receive them directly from the source and not indirectly. For instance, when you want to use the solar energy, go out and receive it directly from its source and not through glasses and lenses.

“Love as the Sun loves. When it rises, it sends forth light for all living things—ugly and beautiful, small and great.

“The heart of the solar system is the Sun. The rhythmical movements of blood in the human heart is determined by the rhythmical waves of the Sun. Therefore, when the heart of man functions improperly, this is a symptom that he has violated is relationship to the Sun.” ~Biensa Douno

Listen to the Sun

Yes, the sun will speak to you. Or more accurately, something within the sun will speak to you. That something is the spiritual light that comes from God, down to the spiritual sun, and then to us. We have a strong solar relationship. But few of us turn to the sun. As to whether or not it sounds like music, I think that is open to interpretation. Douno probably meant that statement allegorically. That is to say, he meant it is like music in that it is pleasant and makes one feel joyful. Our solar relationship is one of joy and pleasant sounds and scents. Continue reading “Solar Relationship of Man with the Spiritual Sun”

regenerated

Regenerated Man of Spirit and Light

“The regimen of the stars makes not a holy man; and although men may converse under a holy show, yet they are but hypocrites, and desire to get honor and esteem, their mind sticks nevertheless in covetousness and pride, and in fleshly pleasure, in mere base lechery and lust, and they are in the sight of God (according to the Desire of this world)no other than mere knaves proud, willful, self-conceited thieves, robbers, and murderers. … We are altogether children of deceit and falsehood; and according to this image (which we have received from the spirit of this world) we belong to eternal Death, but not to Paradise; except it be, that we become regenerated anew out of the center of the precious virgin, who with her Rays averts the mind from the ungodly ways of sin and wickedness.” ~Jacob Boehme

Regimen of Stars

It is true that the stars do not make one holy. The night doesn’t make one holy. Nothing material can make one holy. This is especially true of dark places where God’s light is kept out as much as possible.

Boehme had to be careful what he said in public writings. He could have been charged with heresy and imprisoned if he wasn’t. So he, like many before him, had to express many things allegorically to stay out of trouble. I think this is one of those cases. While praying under the stars in a literal sense won’t make one holy, I think he meant is also in a figurative sense. Specifically, praying in a dark church with its windows stained to block out God’s light is not a path to enlightenment. The ancient mystics knew this. The Pythagoreans, the Essenes, and others did their praying, or spiritual techniques, outdoors facing the rising sun. While there are cases where mystery schools held ceremonies in caves, they inevitably had an opening through which they could watch the sun.

Honor and Esteem

It is unfortunate that there are those who see religion or spiritual development as a path for turning themselves into celebrities. As a result, we have many false teachers, preachers, and gurus today. Many teach things they know to be false, but it is what people want to hear. Others have picked up a few teachings from ancient books and real mystics and turned it into a simplified system that accomplishes almost nothing. It is unfortunate because some of those who join these false schools have great potential that doesn’t get developed. And when they realize the school they are in, or the spiritual writer they follow is a fraud, they often give up instead of seeking a real teacher.

As Boehme correctly notes, those who seek honors and fame through their spiritual books or classes are not being spiritual at all and should be checked carefully. Most such individuals are fakes. Continue reading “Regenerated Man of Spirit and Light”
