Norea Divine Feminine

Norea: Divine Feminine and Awakened Soul

“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 The rulers of unrighteousness had withdrawn from her.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

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.

The Rulers

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.

relaxing by the sea

Relaxing for Peace and Clarity

“They seek for themselves private retiring places, as country villages, the sea-shore, mountains: yea thou thyself art wont to long much after such places. It is in thy power to retire into thyself, and to be at rest, and free from all businesses. A man cannot retire better than to his own soul; he especially who is beforehand provided of such things within, which whensoever he doth withdraw himself to look in, may presently afford unto him perfect ease and tranquility. … Afford then thyself this retiring continuity,and thereby refresh and renew. … What remains then, but that thou often put in practice this kind of retiring of thyself, to this little part of thyself; and above all things, keep thyself from distraction, … but be free and consider all things.” ~Marcus Aurelius

Retiring Places

What Aurelius is calling “retiring places” doesn’t mean a place to go when we retire. Or at least it is not limited to that. He means a place where we go to relax, unwind, escape our busy, everyday lives. It is what a real vacation is all about.

When Aurelius was alive, the sea-shore, the mountains, or a quiet villages were possibly the only choices one had for doing this. Now we are fortunate enough to have many more places to go to unwind and relax. We can hike in a forest, visit an amusement park, or take an ocean cruise (my personal favorite), just to mention a few possibilities. But not all leisure activities are relaxing. One must choose carefully if that is the goal.

Into Thyself

Marcus wisely points out that there are internal as well as external options for relaxing. In fact, all relaxing is internal, though it may be stimulated by external things.

Some of us can afford to take vacations to the sea or the mountains only occasionally. Others can’t afford it at all. That doesn’t mean they cannot relax and escape the hustle and bustle. They have to go inside themselves to do it. They can practice forms of meditation and visualization specifically designed to let them escape. Continue reading “Relaxing for Peace and Clarity”

sleeping soul, Afterlife

Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon

“Beloved reader, this is no jesting matter; he that accounteth it so, hath not tried it, neither hath he yet passed the Judgment; but his conscience is still asleep; and though it should be deferred to his latter days, which is very dangerous, yet he must pass through the Judgment or fiery trial. Happy is he that passeth through it in the time of his youth, before the Devil buildeth his fort of prey strong; he may afterwards prove a laborer in the heavenly vineyard. … This judgment continues a long while upon many a poor soul; several years, if he doth not earnestly and early put on the Armor of Christ, but stayeth til the judgment of tribulation.” ~Jacob Boehme

Sleeping Soul

Boehme says that in many of us the “conscience” is still sleeping. It is more accurate to say the spirit and soul are still sleeping. Many don’t realize that when we are born on the material plane, our body and mind awakens, but the spirit and soul do not. Our spiritual faculties do not like it here. It isn’t their realm, their land. So an effort must be made to awaken them.

Awaken That Sleeping Soul Now

Boehme further says that deferring your spiritual awakening until you are old and dying is “very dangerous”. It is dangerous because you can die at any age. Deciding to wait until you are old to awaken hose spiritual faculties often means you will never get it done. A second reason to not put it off is that awakening is just the first step on a long path. Your body and mind have to continue to grow and develop after you are born. Your awakened spirit has to continue to grow and develop also.

Mr. Boehme gives the third reason for getting it done. The more time you spend with your spiritual facilities dormant, the more the devil and the dark forces can control you. Boehme uses an excellent allegory when he calls it the Devil’s Fort. This “fort” is the false beliefs and false “knowledge” that you have been filled with by the dark ones and their materialistic agents. These mental filters are well-known to modern psychology. Everything, we see, hear, read, etc. is passed through these filters. Only that which is acceptable to them gets past those fort gates. Clearly, if you can break down the fort before it is tall and strong, the more likely you are to succeed. Continue reading “Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon”

Transmute into Good: Man, Earth, Moon and Sun

“It was taught in Manichism that from our age onward the souls of men would begin to transmute into good the evil which will manifest in full force in the sixth epoch. In other words: human souls must be strong enough to bring good out of evil by a process of spiritual alchemy.
“When the Earth begins to recapitulate the previous phases of its evolution, there will first be a reunion with the Moon, and then of this Earth with the Sun. The reunion with the Moon will mark the culminating point of evil on the Earth; the reunion with the sun will signify, on the other hand, the advent of happiness the reign of the ‘elect.’” ~Rudolf Steiner

“A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child . . . .” — Revelation 12:1-2

Transmute Evil

Manichism is one of many mystery schools and spiritual schools that teach that we must “transmute” into good the evil within us and around us. It is not an easy task, but it is doable and worth doing. But transmuting is changing the thing, not destroying it.

We often see pictures of the war between dark and light with angels killing demons of darkness. This might be an acceptable allegory, but is far from the truth. Angels and beings of light will not kill devils and demons. They will transmute them as Steiner says. Or more accurately, they will help them to transmute themselves. We all must do the same within ourselves.

Being part spirit, we are creations of God and have a divine Soul. But being material as well, we are also children of the fallen angels and have that evil within us. This evil may manifest in murder, rape, plunder, and so on. In most cases, however, it will be milder. It will be in the sin of greed, which is taking more than we actually need, thereby depriving others of their fair share of the bounty of nature. It may manifest as lying, especially when such lying benefits us to the detriment of others. It may simply manifest as indifference to the suffering of others. All of those are part of the evil that is within us because we are beings of matter. But we are also spiritual.

The Power to Transmute

We can transmute ourselves with the use of our spirits and soul. First, however, they must be awakened. That doesn’t mean simply declaring that we have awakened them, it must actually be done. That awakening happens when we expose them to the Light of the Spiritual Sun. Scientists today understand that the physical universe is a hologram made entirely of light. It is logical then that great sources of light like the sun have the power to greatly affect that universe. And spiritual sources of light have the power to awaken and nourish our spiritual faculties. Continue reading “Transmute into Good: Man, Earth, Moon and Sun”
