cosmogenesis: the awakening of kosmos (stanza III)

“8.   WHERE WAS THE GERM, AND WHERE WAS NOW DARKNESS? WHERE IS THE SPIRIT OF THE FLAME THAT BURNS IN THY LAMP, O LANOO? THE GERM IS THAT, AND THAT IS LIGHT; THE WHITE BRILLIANT SON OF THE DARK HIDDEN FATHER.

 
The answer to the first question, suggested by the second, which is the reply of the teacher to the pupil, contains in a single phrase one of the most essential truths of occult philosophy.

 
In order to obtain clear perception of it, one has first of all to admit the postulate of a universally diffused, omnipresent, eternal Deity in Nature;

 
secondly, to have fathomed the mystery of electricity in its true essence;

 
and thirdly, to credit man with being the septenary symbol, on the terrestrial plane, of the One Great UNIT (the Logos), which is Itself the Seven-voweled sign, the Breath crystallized into the WORD.”

 
9.   LIGHT IS COLD FLAME. AND FLAME IS FIRE, AND THE FIRE PRODUCES HEAT, WHICH YIELDS WATER, THE WATER OF LIFE IN THE GREAT MOTHER (CHAOS).

 
Primordial matter, before it emerges from the plane of the never-manifesting, and awakens to the thrill of action under the impulse of Fohat, is but “a cool Radiance, colorless, formless, tasteless, and devoid of every quality and aspect.”

 
10.   FATHER-MOTHER SPIN A WEB WHOSE UPPER END IS FASTENED TO SPIRIT (PURUSHA), THE LIGHT OF THE ONE DARKNESS, AND THE LOWER ONE TO MATTER (PRAKRITI), ITS (THE SPIRIT’S) SHADOWY END;

 
AND THIS WEB IS THE UNIVERSE SPUN OUT OF THE TWO SUBSTANCES MADE IN ONE, WHICH IS SVABHAVAT.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
