“O people of the earth, man born and made of the elements, but with the spirit of the Divine Man within you, rise from your sleep and ignorance! Be sober and thoughtful. Realize that your home is not in the earth but in the Light. Why have you delivered yourselves over unto death, having power to partake of immortality? Repent, and change your minds. Depart from the dark light and forsake corruption forever. Prepare yourselves to climb through the Seven Rings and to blend your souls with the eternal Light. …
“The sleep of the body is the sober watchfulness of the mind and the shutting of my eyes reveals the true Light. My silence is filled with budding life and hope, and is full of good. My words are the blossoms of fruit of the tree of my soul. For this is the faithful account of what I received from my true Mind, that is Poimanders, the Great Dragon, the Lord of the Word, through whom I became inspired by God with the Truth. … I give blessings unto God the Father, the Life and the Light, and the Eternal Good.” ~Hermes
Divine Man in a Hypnotic Trance
Some people think that man is always a Divine Being, but he isn’t. Material Man, Physical Man, is a product of the Great Fall, a creation of the Demiurge, and therefore not Divine. Only Man’s spirit and soul are divine, not his body and mind. But this Divine Spirit is asleep, in a hypnotic trance of a sort when we come into the world of matter. It isn’t truly functional here until it is awakened and made conscious. This is the true meaning of a spiritual awakening. Simply recognizing that materialism is a failed paradigm and there is more to life than having a job and making money is a good first step, but that alone isn’t what the ancient masters meant by being awakened. Only bringing the Divine Spirit and Soul into consciousness is a real spiritual awakening. We awaken those spiritual faculties with the use of Spiritual Light, Divine Light that comes from God. That Divine Light reaches Divine Man through the Spiritual Sun which acts as a portal between heaven and earth.
Be Sober and Thoughtful
Hermes is not advising the student to stop drinking. He means “sober” in the sense of taking life and his duties as a spiritual student seriously. Those who enter into spiritual studies with a lackadaisical attitude will rarely achieve much and many teachers will turn such students away as they don’t wish to waste their valuable time with them. So if you make a decision to study spiritual growth and development, take is serious, or you will likely be wasting your own time as well as that of any teacher you are working with. Divine Man is not a joke, you shouldn’t be either. To awaken your inner Divine Man (or Woman), you have to take the concept seriously. Continue reading “Divine Man and Woman Must be Awakened”
