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”

Angel of Light

Angels, Light Beings, and the Sun

Real Angels

“The Rosicrucians and the Illuminati, describing the angels, archangels, and others celestial creatures, declared that they resemble small suns, beings centers of radiant energy surrounded by streamers of Vrilic [sic] force. From these outpouring streamers of force is derived the popular belief that angels have wings. These wings are corona-like fans of light. … True mystics are unanimous in their denial of the theory that the angels and archangels are human in form, as so often pictured. A human figure would be utterly useless in the ethereal substances through which they manifest. …
“The ancients asserted that life originated from the sun, and that everything when bathed in the light of the solar orb was capable of absorbing the solar life elements.” ~Manly P. Hall

Mr. Hall did a great job of documenting ancient spiritual teachings from ll over the world, but his own spiritual development seems to have been somewhat limited. Nonetheless, most of what he says in the quote is reasonably accurate.

Angels are indeed Being of Light, and can therefore be considered small suns Mr. Hall says they were surrounded by streamers of light, or “Vrilic” force. I cannot find a definition for “Vrilic” so I am assuming it is a typo, but I don’t know what word he intended to use. In any case, it is accurate to say that angels are surrounded by streamers of Light and force. I didn’t include in the quote that Mr. Hall thinks the angels propel themselves around the spiritual realms using these streamers of light. That is not truly accurate. Like all spirits, angels are everywhere and every when simultaneously. Time and space have no meaning in the spiritual worlds. An angel doesn’t literally move from one place to another, he simply shifts his attention to himself in another location where he always was and always will be. So angels have no wings, at least not the type that they are commonly depicted with. Mr. Hall further states that angels do not have a human or humanoid form I think that is largely true, but they may take on a somewhat human appearance at times when appearing to people so they seem familiar.
