before creation

Before Creation There Was Light

“Within the Apocryphon of John, A Gnostic text, there is a myth that can be easily deconstructed so that the structure can be found and the logical model discovered. The main focus of the story is pre-creation, for great care is taken to name many of the beings created by Yaldebaoth and to explain the nature of the universe before the creation of the physical world. Adam and Eve’s difficulties are also discussed and ‘for those who have ears to hear’ it provides a matrix for life within the world.

“Before the material world came in existence, according to this text, there was Light:

“he is immeasurable light, which is pure, holy (and) immaculate. He is ineffable, being perfect in incorruptibility. He is not in perfection, nor in blessedness, nor in divinity, but he is far superior. He is not corporeal nor is he incorporeal. He is neither large, nor is he small. …

“From Light there came a series of Emanations, non-corporeal cosmic beings in male-female pairs. Within the Light itself there were three especially important beings: the Father, the Mother and the Son. Beneath the trinity, there is a kind of creative ‘soup’ consisting of Water, Darkness, the Abyss, and Chaos (four common elements of many pre-creation stories) within which the Trinity exists.” ~Bernard Simon

Truth of Myth

I’ve said this before, but it needs to be repeated since the tale in the quote is called a myth. A myth is not a fairy tale. It is not fantasy or the hallucinations of a deranged mind. It is truth given in the form of an allegorical tale. This is done partly to make it easy to remember and partly to hide the true meaning from those who would misuse the truth for materialistic ends.

Before Creation

To many, it seems a contradiction to speak of a time before creation, even if you limit it to before creation of the physical universe. But it isn’t a contradiction. There was existence before matter and there will be one long after matter is gone. For simplicity, we can simply call this the spiritual universe. In reality, it is more complicated. There are, in fact, nine primary dimensions of reality. Three of them are primarily matter, six are mostly spirit, with the top two or three being all spirit. Those spiritual dimensions exist without the limitations of space and time, therefore, they existed long before the universe of matter limited by time and space. But even these dimensions, except for the highest, were created also. Therefore, to say they existed “before creation,” means before the creation of the physical universe. In truth, these spiritual dimensions are the only real creation. The physical universe is a distortion of spirit. It is a kind of cancer or tumor growing out of the realm of spirit. And as with any other disease, it needs to be cured, and it will be cured.

There Was Light

Mr. Simon says that before the creation of the material universe, there was Light. This Light cannot be something physical if it existed before the creation of the physical. Therefore, it had to be spiritual light. Simon then starts talking about this Light as if it were an entity, an intelligent being. While he doesn’t say it, this being could only be God. So he is equating God with Light.

God is associated with Light in virtually all religions. God is the source of Light. God is the creator of Light. The first creation was light, but the spiritual Light existed before creation. But it is unusual to say outright that God is Light, yet it is true. It is also true to say that God is the highest level of consciousness. But Light is the carrier of knowledge and consciousness. So consciousness is God, Light is God. It is all the same thing.

On the other side, the Devil, Satin, or the Demiurge, the creator of matter is also the head of the realm of Darkness. But nowhere does it say that darkness existed before creation, only Light. It was the creation of matter, illusion, and lies that created darkness. Remember, darkness isn’t really a thing of itself. Darkness is simply the absence of Light. So the world created by the Demiurge is missing some—perhaps most—of its natural, Divine Light. That is what makes it dark.

There are many who say that light cannot exist without darkness. That is simply untrue. Fire can exist without water. White can exist without black. Light can exist without darkness. In fact, until the Great Fall symbolized in the Bible by the story of Adam and Eve, what existed was a world of Light without darkness. And the universe that existed before creation will return as this fallen realm is transformed back into its original form. We can aid in that transformation, if we choose. To choose to help makes one part of the Chosen of God, the Bringers of Light. Make the smart choice.

first child

First Child of Divine Consciousness

“It was called into being, a ready and perfect vehicle for the incarnating denizens of higher spheres, who took forthwith their abodes in these forms born of Spiritual WILL and the natural divine power in man. It was a child of pure spirit, mentally unalloyed with any tincture of earthly element. Its physical frame alone was of time and of life, as it drew its intelligence directly from above. It was the living tree of divine wisdom; and may therefore be likened to the Mundane Tree of the Norse Legend, which cannot wither and die until the last battle of life shall be fought, while its roots are gnawed all the time by the dragon Nidhogg; for even so, the first and holy son of Kriyasakti had his body gnawed by the teeth of time, but the roots of his inner being remain forever undecaying and strong, because they grew and expanded in heaven not on earth.

“He was the first of the FIRST, and he was the seed of all the others. …There were other ‘Sons of Kriyasakti’ produced by a second Spiritual effort, but the first one has remained to this day the Seed of divine Knowledge.” ~H. P. Blavatsky

First Child

The first child of God, or Divine Consciousness ( Kriyasakti is creative consciousness), is greater than the others that follow. In Christianity, most think of that first son as Jesus, but it would be more accurate to think of him as Christ. Jesus was a man in whom the Christ spirit resided for a time. But the Christ spirit existed long before the birth of Jesus.

Spiritual Will

The first child was born of spiritual will, as was everything else in the realms of spirit. Spiritual will and spiritual thought creates all that exists in the realms of spirit. Likewise, physical will and thought creates the physical world around us. But since the physical world is an illusion, what is being manifest on this level is little more than kids making little animals from clay.

Spiritual will exists in all spiritual beings such as the angels and the Beings of Light. It also exists in the divine soul of man as the soul is also a spiritual being. Most of us never use it while in the material world because the spirit and soul are dormant when we come into this realm. We have to make the effort to awaken those spiritual faculties using spiritual light. Once they are awakened, that Divine first child can be born within us and be a part of us.

Great Consciousness that Creates Everything

“The thought of a man has a transforming power. The good, right, nice thought can transform your desperation into a quiet and pleasant condition.

“The thought of a man is a magic wand with which you can create miracles When you lose it, you lose everything.

“God will help you after you have tried everything. What is impossible for a man is possible for God. …

“People become stupid when they ask idols and made-up gods for help. And what do they get from them? They get nothing, and in addition, they lose whatever they have. Pray to the live God, to the Great Consciousness, which is perfection.” ~Biensa Douno

“All phenomena are the products of Consciousness. … Since Consciousness is the source of all life, being and form, energy and matter, any application of this Force has unlimited power in the universe. … We cannot understand the world through our sense perceptions only through Consciousness is this possible.” ~Gene Savoy

Great Consciousness

First, we have to clear up what we mean by consciousness. Some people think in terms of the human brain-mind with its conscious and subconscious parts. They then assume that consciousness is a reference to the conscious mind of man. It isn’t.

Consciousness is something that exists outside of us. It exists without us. It existed before man. It will exist after physical man is long gone. Consciousness is singular. There is only one. But since consciousness created all that exists, there is some consciousness in everything. There is consciousness in the conscious mind, but the two are not the same.

The Great Consciousness is the one consciousness that created everything. It is also called Divine Consciousness, Universal Consciousness, or Christ Consciousness. Some call it the consciousness of God. Other say that it is God, that God is the Great Consciousness and nothing else. However you think of it, the point remains the same. The Great Consciousness crated all and we are part of it. That is not to say that each of us individually is the Great Consciousness. We are a small part of it. All of the little bits of consciousness found in all that exists put together make up the Great consciousness. Continue reading “Great Consciousness that Creates Everything”

Elohim

Elohim in the Book of Genesis

“In the very first chapter of the book of Genesis the plurality of God is very prominent. It cannot fail to draw the attention of a critical and secular reader. If you read just a few verses on the first page, down to verse 26, you will see: …And God said, Let us make man in our image, The word used in the Hebrew for God is ‘Elohim’ which is a plural word, and literally means ‘Mighty Ones’.

“So, if these religious people insist that every word is literally true, then they must accept that their God is really a group of Mighty Ones. If we are to take it literally it means: .. And the Mighty Ones said, let us make man in our image, From which we should deduce that these putative ‘Mighty Ones’ look like us. That is the outcome of a literal understanding. In fact, in Genesis 1 v 1, the very first words of the Bible, the word translated as ‘God’ is actually the plural word ‘Elohim’ or Mighty Ones. ….In the beginning Mighty Ones created the heaven and the earth. ” ~George Curtis and Jack Lewis

Ancient Truth

The authors of the book “Ancient Knowledge” are using the information quoted above to tell us that we shouldn’t interpret everything in the Bible literally. To do so, they say, leads to contradictions. The primary message they are trying to point out with the words from Genesis is that God is called “Elohim”, a plural word. There are also phrases like “Let us make man in our image”. These are example, the authors say, of why the Bible should not be interpreted too literally.

While they certainly have a point about the Bible, and most other ancient scripture, being allegory, the references to God in a plural form may not be one of those cases. Christians, after all, say that God is three persons in one. So the fact that there is but one real God doesn’t necessarily mean He is singular. Continue reading “Elohim in the Book of Genesis”
