stanza 6, slokas 5-6

Stanza VI, Slokas 5-6
5. At the fourth, the sons are told to create their images. One third refuses – to obey.
The curse is pronounced; they will be born on the fourth suffer and cause suffering; this is the first war.
6. The older wheels rotated downwards and upwards….The mother’s spawn filled the whole. There were battles fought between the Creators and the Destroyers, and battles fought for space; the seed appearing and re-appearing continuously.

 

“Mr. Mead:  Eros was always first-born of the Gods.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Eros is the first-born – he is not the first-born, he is coeval. Chaos, Eros and [    ] {Gaia} are coeval, therefore none of these three elements are conceived, they are simply co-existent in eternity; only at the moment of differentiation they manifest themselves, that is to say, out of the subjective and the non-being comes being, and then after that they begin to come on each other and react. This is the polarity, the electrical force, to which belongs our blood and life and anything. It is life, in short. This is cosmic desire.

 
Mr. Mead:  Cupid is simply the lower aspect.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Take Hesiod’s cosmogony, and see the enormous difference there is between what Hesiod says and what later on the mythologies have invented. Even a few hundred years before our era, then it was a most sublime thing, and pretended to the mysteries, and now they made of it – I don’t know what.

 
Mr. _____:  How can Gaia be said to be coeval?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Ask Hesiod; take him by the beard.

 
Mr. B. Keightley: It means the abstract.

 
Mme. Blavatsky: The female portion in Chaos.

 
Mr. Mead: The Earth that no one has seen.

 
Mr. Old: There was just the word “absolute” that I have not, and if they made it in connection with that, this absolute appears to be the effect of cosmic desire. Well now, the idea of the absolute as we postulate it –

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Why do you use the word absolute.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  It evolves into absolute light.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:   On the manifested plane; if we take it metaphysically again, I say the Christians can make it into perfect light. When I say “Absolute” I quote it or underline it. But when I put absolute, I just use the expression as perfect.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Absolute light of the manifested plane.

 
Mr. Old:  But Eros, or Lucifer, any one aspect, is that light?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:   Certainly it is.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
