“All things such as we see are in their interior fire and light, wherin is hidden the essence of the spirit. All things are a trinity of fire, light, and air. In other words, ‘Spirit,‘ the ‘Father,‘ is a divine superessential light; the ‘son,’ the light having become manifest; the ‘holy spirit,’ a divine superessential air and motion. The fire resides within the heart and sends its rays through the whole body of man, causing it to live; but no light is born from the fire without the presence of the spirit of holiness.
“To express this in other words we may say—All things are made of thought, and exist in the universal mind (the astral light), and within each is latent the will, by whose action they may become developed and their powers unfolded. This takes place under favorable circumstances by the slow and unconscious action of the universal will acting in nature, and may be accomplished in a very short time by the aid of the conscious will of the alchemist; but before the will of a person can accomplish such wonders in external substances, his will must first become self-conscious within itself; the light that shines from the center of his own heart, must become living and bright before it can act upon those substances with which the alchemist deals.He in whom this divine light of the Christ (the atma) has not awakened to life, is virtually asleep in the spirit, and can act upon spiritual things no more than a man can deal with material substances while he sleeps.” ~Franz Hartmann
All Things Fire and Light
While it is true that the ancient holy ones often said that we all are “fire and light” within, it must be understood that this should not be taken too literally. To them, “fire” often meant energy of any kind, so they were really saying that we are actually energy and light.
Essence of Spirit
The essence of spirit is found in energy and, more specifically, Light. But not just any light, spiritual light. You won’t find it in a fluorescent light bulb, a sodium street lamp, or even a neon sign. Spirit light must have a spiritual source, and the primary source of spiritual light on Earth is the Spiritual Sun.
In fact, since the human spirit and soul are pure spirit, and not matter at all, they are made of spiritual light and they live on spiritual light. And if humanity transforms as God wants us too, we will one day exist entirely on Light and not have to kill and eat other beings to survive. Continue reading “Fire and Light and the Creative Trinity”
