Mystical Wisdom Revealed to Spirits and Souls

“We speak the hidden mystical Wisdom of God, which God ordained before the world unto our glory; Which none of the princes of this world knew; for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory. But, as it is written; eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man to conceive of things which God has prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of man, save the spirit of a man which is in him? Even so, the things of God know no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of this world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

“The natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” ~Jacob Boehme1

Mystical Wisdom of God

The wisdom of the ancients mystics is the wisdom of God, and that is the only true wisdom. True wisdom comes from truth, and only that truth which comes from God is absolute truth. Yet this wisdom, as Boehme notes, is hidden to most. There are many reasons for this, but the two primary ones are simply this; some people would use such knowledge in a way that is harmful to themselves and others ( Think Hitler and Roman Emperor Nero), and the forces of darkness hide it as much as they can from all of us.

Princes of the World

Sadly, we are seeing much of such princes these days, even in countries that are supposed to be democracies. In a representative democracy, the elected officials have taken an oath to uphold the will of the people. That is what makes them representatives. But we are seeing in several countries that they very quickly forget that oath and act like the princes and despots of days gone by. They do what they want to do and what their wealthy supporters want while ignoring the desires and needs of the majority. So it should not be a surprise that such princes know nothing of the mystical wisdom and truth. They wouldn’t know how to use it if they did.

living book

Living Book of Spiritual Wisdom

“In their heart, the living book of the living was manifest, the book that was written in the thought and in the mind of the father and, from before the foundation of all, is in that incomprehensible part of him. This is the book that no one found possible to take, since it was reserved for him who will take it and be slain. No one could appear among those who believed in salvation as long as that book had not appeared. … For this reason Jesus appeared. He put on that book. He was nailed to a cross. He affixed the edict of the father to the cross. Oh, such great teaching! He abases himself even unto death, though he is clothed in eternal life. Having divested himself of these perishable rags, he clothed himself in incorruptibility, which no one could possibly take from him. Having entered into the empty territory of fears, he passed before those who were stripped by forgetfulness, being both knowledge and perfection, proclaiming the things that are in the heart of the father, so that he became the wisdom of those who have received instruction. … Since the perfection of all is in the father, it is necessary for all to ascend to him. Therefore, if one has knowledge, he gets what belongs to him and draws it to himself. ” ~Gospel of Truth

The Living Book

The Living Book is not the Bible. It isn’t the Bhagavad Gita or one of the Upanishads. It isn’t the Egyptian Book of the Dead. All of those, and all other written books, scripture or otherwise, are not living books. Once the book is written on paper or scrolls, it becomes set. The living book is not set. It changes with the times. It changes with the people. That is what makes it a living book.
As the quote says, the Living Book is written in the thoughts of God. And just as with us, God’s thoughts are not static. They change, they adjust to new times. This makes the Mind of God the real Living Book, the real source of truth and wisdom. The way for us to gain such wisdom and truth is to link our spiritual minds, or souls, with the Mind of God. First, of course, we have to awaken and develop our spirit and soul. It doesn’t just happen on its own. We have to make an effort to do it. We have to want to read from the Living Book.

He Abases Himself

Jesus was the Messiah. But he didn’t walk around puffing up his chest like a rooster and crowing about it. He had humility. This is an important lesson to all who wish to develop their spiritual selves. Those who puff themselves up in the material world, and seek their treasures and honors their, are highly unlikely to have a spiritual awakening. Yet we see many claiming to be spiritual posting things on social media like, “I don’t need to awaken, I was born awake,” or “I don’t need to study spiritual techniques, I am God.” Such statements reek of hubris and show that these people are not in the least bit spiritual.
Just to be clear, I am not saying that you need to destroy your ego. That is not a wise or spiritual thing to do. The ego allows you to function in the physical realm, so unless you want to become a “sheeple” easily controlled by the government and big business (why do you think they promote such ideas?), keep your ego, but control it.

proud man

The Proud Man Lacks Truth and Wisdom

“I ask, ‘How can you rectify a proud man?’ Act with love with him, nothing more. There is no other power that can soften a man’s pride. That’s how you will soften it and put it in its normal condition. In man’s life where love does not reign there, greed will be born.

“Christ says, ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.’ … When you enter this way, you will act well, you will work well, and when you enter the Truth, you cannot stay indifferent, you will love all people! This is the Truth! And when you enter this life, you will think together with all people and you will take the nice from them from everywhere. …

“I am teaching you the the nicest thing: ‘Learn to Love God!’ This is Love!

“So I am telling you now if you are listening to me, according to the law of love, you will understand these things. With love, all things have meaning. And in Truth, all things have meaning. …

“Love is manifested through the law of Wisdom. Wisdom is manifested through the law of Truth. Truth is realized in life. It is a circle. You have to be reasonable in order to enter love and to benefit from all it carries.” ~Biensa Douno

A Proud Man

Today many will wonder what is wrong with being a proud man. There is nothing wrong with some reasonable pride based on accomplishment. But that is not the kind of pride Douno is referring to. He is talking about having way to much pride for minor accomplishments, or simply being full of pride with no accomplishments at all. In short, he is talking about hubris, the opposite of humility. It is the kind of pride that makes a person believe they could make a good president with no political experience whatsoever. This is the kind of pride that convinces you that when anything goes wrong, it is always someone else’s fault. This pride may give you some success in the overly materialistic physical world of today, but it gets you nowhere in the realm of spirit.

Act With Love

It is not just the proud man who needs the power of love. All of us do. And the ones who need it the most are very often the ones who get it the least. Orphans, immigrants, homeless people, poor people, and such are often ignored or forgotten by the majority of humanity. So we should all practice giving love and acting with love, not just to relatives and friends, not just to those we like or agree with, but to all of humanity. Then we should go beyond loving humanity to love animals, plants, and all of creation. Even the mountains and rivers are living things and need love.

Acting with love means more than simply saying you love everyone and everything, although that is a good start. It means that when you do things you ask who will benefit by it and who will be harmed by it. If you benefit from it, but others are harmed, doing it is probably is not an act of love. And if your act of love does benefit others, but you do it only to boost your ego and pride, you are not doing an act of love. The proud man may do good deeds, but he (or she) only does it for recognition. Continue reading “The Proud Man Lacks Truth and Wisdom”

cosmos of wisdom

Cosmos of Wisdom, Universe of Light

“When after an interval of rest, our Earth system appears as the successor of this Cosmos of Wisdom, all the beings newly emerging on the earth, developed out of their moon-germs, prove to be filed with wisdom. And this is the reason why earthly man when contemplating the things around him , is able to discover the wisdom concealed in their inner nature. The wisdom in each leaf of a plant, in every bone in animal and man, in the marvelous structure of the brain and heart, fills us with admiration. If man requires wisdom to understand things, and therefore gathers wisdom from them, this shows that there is wisdom in the things themselves. For however much man might have striven to understand things by by means of wise perceptions, he could not draw wisdom from them if it had not been put into them. He who tries by means of wisdom to understand things, assuming at the same time that wisdom had not been concealed within them, may just as reasonable believe that he can empty water out of a glass into which it had not first been poured.” ~Rudolf Steiner

Cosmos of Wisdom

To say that the cosmos is one of wisdom is to say that it has hidden meaning and knowledge within it. That is true, and fairly obvious, at many levels. Even the most materialistic scientists who believe nothing exists beyond matter do not claim that we already know everything. Even on that level, there remains much to be learned. There is also much which can’t be learned if trapped in that philosophy since there will always be things that can never be understood as part of a universe of only matter and no spirit.

Those who have awakened to some degree are aware that wisdom is not found in books or anything else of matter. It is found in spirit. It is broadcast throughout the realms of spirit and received by the soul. Only the soul can understand. But as Steiner says, there is wisdom in everything and every being. And if we start looking for that wisdom within them, we will start seeing the world in a whole new way. Continue reading “Cosmos of Wisdom, Universe of Light”
