Experiencing Eternal Archetypes
|Written by Editor VOPUS|
"Concept" and "word" are the same substance. The "Concept" is internal and "word" is external. This process is alike at all levels of Consciousness and in all dimensions of space. Ideas are only abstract concepts. Ideas are spiritual concepts. All the existing things in the physical world are copies of these archetypes.
To ecstasy is certainly an indefinable joy that does not include only the sensory and psychological nature but also produces in the human anatomy a hypersensitivity to the beautiful and the sublime, that tat is, to what follows, terribly transcendent or transcendental. Experiencing this mental states that signals us V.M. Samael Aun Weor in the previous lines as being Shamadi, has inside human an instrument of participation and this one is to be called again COUNSCIOUSNESS, without ever to understand, by this term, “intellectual cultivation” but rather “a faculty of the visible and invisible capture” as it was referred to by Kepler and Pauli himself.
Therefore, in the name of truth, we must emphasize, despite many psychologists, psychiatrists or contemporary mentalists opinion, the obvious fact that the human psyche suffers from a deep hypnotic state that limits its field of perception not just at physical level but also psychic and spiritual.
Because gnostic studies have advanced significantly in recent years no cultured person would fall anymore, as before, in the simplistic error to make Gnostic trends appear from a spiritual exclusive latitude. If it is true that we must take into consideration, in any Gnostic system, its Hellenistic and Oriental elements, including Persia, Mesopotamia, India, Tibetul, Palestine, Egypt, etc, we should never ignore the Gnostic principles included and perceptible cults of Nahuas, Toltecs, Aztecs, Zapotecs, Mayans, Incas, Chibchas, Quechuas, etc. from Indoamerica. So, therefore, is an error to think that Gnosis is a simple metaphysical current introduced inside Cristianity’s breast. On the contrary, Gnosis is an EXISTENTIAL ATTITUDE with its own characteristics, rooted in the most ancient, elevated and refined esoteric aspiration of all peoples whose history, lamentably, is not well known by many modern anthropologists.
The purpose of this “special” knowledge was, as we already asserted in the previous pages, to reveal to the human many truths which are beyond his ordinary senses, since people, as general rule, think they are in relationship only with outside, but Gnosticism teaches us that we are also in relationship with an inner world or a psychological space.
This inner world is much more extended and contains many interesting things and of greater importance than the ones contained in the physical environment that we are always attentive, using only the “windows” of the five senses.
Phenomenon is that thing that, in a certain way, we can perceive with our physical senses or with mechanical apparatusses. Noumen is what neither senses, nor apparatusses reach to perceive in a phenomenon. Essence is this part of a phenomenon which we cannot perceive. To reach to the Essence of a phenomenon must be the purspose of Knowledge. There are various theories that claim to explain the problem of knowledge but what is fundamental is that each human being, as a cognoscent subject, to reach the Truth, meaning to reach to know what is the phenomenon itself, not only as an appearance, but as an essence as well.
