The Word and the Light

But back to Genesis, what it’s telling us is that God and the Word are one. They are inseparable. Through this power that is vested in him, that is him, Heaven and Earth were created. Our universe was born through sound. Through vibration.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made, and without him not one thing was made that has been made.[1]

This point cannot be overstated. Our world is vibration. Before there is Light, there is sound. A vibrating energy field that permeates all of existence. This is what we call the Cosmic Quantum Energy Field in the rest of this work.

I’ve seen this. I’ve felt this. It’s vast and unending, expanding in all (6) directions (Sefir Yetzirah reference), although attention for me as an embodied being in this sea of energy was looking toward one particular direction. No doubt this is East, for this is where the sun rises.

This is also incidentally why the sound of the teachings is so important. The actual words spoken by a true teacher. It’s an actual vibrating field of energy which is absolutely transmitted from teacher to student. This isn’t hocus pocus stuff, this is the Science of all Sciences. This is why the powers of darkness have tried so hard over the millennia to hide, to extinguish these schools of mystical, fundamentally esoteric (hidden) knowledge. It is a threat to their existence.

It is through this prism of words then, through sound and vibration, that truth (knowledge) can not just be appreciated but experienced – that it must be fully comprehended, intuited, known in the Biblical sense as they say. This is the higher knowledge, i.e. Knowledge or Brahmavidya (knowledge of Brahman) that is spoken of in the Upanishads.

This is how one knows, the means by which realization can unfold so to speak. And this cosmic, universal knowing, the experience of Knowledge, is one of the aspects of the divine which is co-eternal, co-existent, with God’s creation.

The Neo-Platonic One is knowledge itself, , i.e. again Knowledge, just as much as it is the source and energy that pervades the cosmos itself. This is the gnostic tradition that has surrounded Christianity since inception couched in Vedic language, the underlying truth is the same.

Gnosis is the bathing in this Knowledge, the becoming of, or better put the realization of the fact that, you are non separate from this force that underpins the universe, you yourself were born out of it, rest in it during life, are sustained by it, and will dissipate and merge back into it upon death.

And what Moses is saying, is that our God created all of this. Not just any God, but ours, of his at least.

Line 2, we’re just getting started here:

Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.[1]

Here we have the second motion of the universe described, now that the universe was brought into existence, immediately there was a sort of battle with darkness. Darkness had enveloped the deep, the watery abyss. It was a great, lifeless void.

And the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters. This is no doubt a sort of erotically charged event from which life is born, from which the universe, once created, comes into being you might say.

God engages in some self-erotic act of masturbation, as many of the prophets of the archaic tribes of Africa and across the world tell us, through which both the male and the female are born – as primordial principles.

These are the (beginnings of) Hellenic arche that the philosophers obsessed over for centuries.

This Father and Mother were created at the very beginning. It is through them that the universe exists. And it is hidden in this text, it is veiled I tell you.

It is this spirit of God that is the Great Mother of the universe. This emanates from God himself, coeternal with Him but at the same time a separate power from himself, something that radiates from his existence but nonetheless is Him at the same time. Its female because it is the fertile ground through which the universe comes forth.

She rests on the deep, which is asleep. This is the great image of Kali on Siva. This is it here. It is from this fundamental state of existence through which the universe is born.

Long live Kali, the Mother of Time herself.

Kali SivaKali standing triumphantly over Shiva’s corpse.[2]

This stalemate of existence needs to be broken though. For life to be brought forth, something must be brought into existence that will literally shine life into existence. This is light. Not just any light of course, but The Light.

And God said: ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.[3]

God said, the Word again “Let there be light”, in some ancient tongue no doubt. With a sound that reverberates still in the universe. This is Om. It is the sound of the light permeating the universe. As we find in John:

In him was life, and that life was the light for humankind.

And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not mastered it.[4]

This great battle between Light and Darkness (the Sun and Saturn in the esoteric tradition) has in fact been with us since the beginning. This is Purusha and Prakṛti, the elemental Male and Female that come together to make creation, out of which creation is fashioned.

And they are not just outside of us, but within us as well. These Male and Female spirits, reflected in the world as Light and Dark forces, one of the very basic and fundamental characteristics of universal existence is this erotic interplay between Shiva and Shakti.

What does it mean to go into the light? To be light on your feet? To feel lightheaded? What does it mean? It means that for a moment, this physical form falls away, the bonds are loosened, and we feel as if we can fly almost. This sun, who the Egyptians worshipped as Ra (or Aton as the solar disk which at one point was the central religion of Egypt) and in the Vedas he is called Surya, the creator of the universe and the source of life, is the key to all knowledge. To divinity itself you might say.

And the sun of course exists in many dimensions – the great chariot that Ra must drive through the underworld every night to battle the demons so that he can rise another day. The battle of Good and Evil, played out in the macrocosm every day of our lives. It is the Sun and the Moon, and the rest of the planets – seven in total – that provide the order and universe within which we all live and breathe. From the 1, the 2, the 3, the 4, the 7 and the 10 the entire human universal world order can be found. In these numerical ideas of course, it is condensed in its simplest form here, and from here all the secrets of the universe can be found.

All

Of

Them

Seek and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you – unto you, not for you or to you. There is nothing to see except knowledge itself, awareness pulsating in life forms all around us. In this great dance, the Lila of the Lord. 

There are limits as to what can be known. As Ramakrishna tells us, you need not worry about such things. Just eat the mangoes from the tree my friend. They are sweet. Eat the mangoes. Tell your friends. Share the mangoes.

It is within us, and it is reflected in the world around us. And it is also above us (planetary sphere). Again we find: as above, so below.

Get with it people. It’s all been laid out for us so clearly… hidden in plain sight all this time. Hidden by the serpent as we shall see…

  1. There’s always been a relationship of equanimity, a loving-kindness, between the forces Sky and the forces of Water- both gave birth to the combined reproductive forces of the Land; within it and upon it unbounded abundance is to be found.

    To know of the equanimity of the love between Water and Sky is, also to know how Land can be shaped as a reflection of our experience in Love and Kindness, after all we too are physical incarnations of all three forces.

  2. I too, feel, that a fourth dimension is too available and this is the womb, symbolically and otherwise… a fifth and six too…
