I took them from the Twelve Saviours of the Treasure of Light according to the command of the First Mystery. (2) The four lower human Principles, we are taught in the Esoteric Philosophy, i.e., Body, Double, Life and Instinct (animal soul, or Kâma, the passionate Principle), are derived by men from the Planetary Hierarchies and the Rulers of the lower terrestrial spheres—the rupa planes. These three produced in their joint effects a good Rupa. Yet it was still but a Chhâyâ, a shadow with no sense.” . But Breath needs a mind to embrace the Universe; ‘We cannot give that,’ said the Fathers. ‘The form would be consumed were I to give it mine,’ said the Great Fire . The two small circles within the Plerôma are the syzygy Christos-Pneuma (Christ and the Holy Spirit); these are after-emanations, and as such, from one aspect, typify the descent of Spirit to inform and evolve Matter, which essentially proceeds from the same source; and from another, the descent or incarnation of the Kumâras or the Higher Egos of Humanity.
after I came forth into the World I brought with me twelve Powers, as I told you from the beginning. For all men who are in the World, have taken their Soul from the Rulers of the Aeôns (2). Of a truth your soul pertains to the Height (3).” –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– (1) Note that “womb” and “body” are in the singular. The Spirit of the Earth called to his help the Solar Fire. The Breath needed a Vehicle of Desires; ‘It has it,’ said the Drainer of Waters. Such are the contents of the Plerôma or Completion, the Ideas in the Divine Mind, 28 in all for Bythus or the Father is not reckoned, as it is the Root of all.
He is, however, right in saying that “these twelve symbolical hours, which may be compared with the signs of the Zodiac and the labours of Hercules, represent the cycle of degrees of Initiation.” (See The Secret Doctrine, I, 450.) (2) The Greek word translated by “Region” is topos; it corresponds to the Sanskrit loka. As Ragon, following the occult tradition, has well proved, Masonry was a forced product of the Gnostic mysteries, born of a compromise between Political Christianity and Gnosticism. The third, the feminine principle, is also without foreknowledge, two-minded or undecided, bi-corporate or of two bodies, being figured as a virgin above and a viper below (astronomically the Virgo-Scorpio of the ancient Zodiacs), and her name is Eden or Isrâ‘l. Bell & Sons, 1898.] –––––––––– Page 24 understand why the Angel Gabriel the Daimôn of the Moon, and the ruler of the sign Taurus, appeared to Mary at her conception; the Annunciation will resolve itself into far simpler terms than the accepted solution, and we shall have learnt something of the mysteries of the astral body.This is thought to be the result of the translator being unable to find suitable terms in the Coptic (Thebaidic or Sahidic) to express the ideas found in a Greek manuscript. The seventh figure generated from the point is the right-angled triangle, the most perfect.Such terms and names are simply transliterated from the Greek. The more acute the angle, the subtler the Fire, until it finally reaches the right angle, the balance or turning point of all angles. 14 an infinity of intermediate figures, etc., seven infinities and seven eternities in all.(4) [Dove.] Compare: “Thou art the First Mystery looking within, thou hast come from the spaces of the Height and the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Light and thou hast descended on the Vesture of Light, which thou didst receive from Barbelô, which vesture is Jesus, our Saviour, on which thou didst descend as a Dove.” (Page 128 of Schwartze’s Coptic.) Now, the Second Space of the First Mystery corresponds in Esoteric parlance to the second plane of consciousness from within or above, on which plane is Buddhi (the Spiritual Soul), the vehicle of Atman (Universal Spirit), the “First Mystery,” which is also “the last Mystery” in the endless cycle of emanation and reabsorption. we have received all fullness [pleroma] and perfection. And mutual desire arose in the Elôhîm and Eden, and from this union were born twenty-four Angels, twelve called Paternal and twelve Maternal. The twelve are, of course the twelve signs of the Zodiac, etc., according to the key used. (2) [Barbelô.] In explaining this term, it will be interesting to see first of all what the other Gnostic systems say of Barbelô and then to examine the statements in Pistis-Sophia.In Egyptian Esotericism the “dove symbol” of the Gnostics was represented by the glyph of the winged globe. In the Talmud and the Kabala, Eden is called “The Garden of Delight,” and held by the Church Fathers to figure Yoni after the commission of the first sin. We learn from Irenaeus,* that the Innominable Father was manifested to this “never-aging Aeôn in a virginal form” by the emanation of four beings, whose name expressed thought and life; and that she, at the sight thereof, conceived and gave birth to three like beings.
