“All the sun-gods, with their symbol, the visible sun, are the creators of physical nature only. The spiritual is the work of the Highest God – the Concealed, the Central, Spiritual SUN, and of his Demiurge – the Divine Mind of Plato, and the Divine Wisdom of Hermes Tristmegistus – the wisdom effused from Oulom or Kronos.
“After the distribution of pure Fire, in the Samothracian Mysteries, a new life began.” This was the “new birth”, that is alluded to by Jesus, in his nocturnal conversation with Nicodemus.
“Initiated into the most blessed of all Mysteries, being ourselves pure…we become just and holy with wisdom.” “He breathed on them and saith unto them, ‘Take the Holy Pneuma.'” And this simple act of will-power was sufficient to impart vaticination in its nobler and most perfect form if both the initiator and the initiated were worthy of it.
To deride this gift, even in its present aspect, “as the corrupt offspring and lingering remains of an ignorant age of superstition, and hastily to condemn it as unworthy of sober investigation, would be as unphilosophical as it is wrong”, remarks the Rev. J. B. Gross.
“To remove the veil which hides our vision from the future, has been attempted – in all ages of the world; and therefore the propensity to pry into the lap of time, contemplated as one of the faculties of human mind, comes recommended to us under the sanction of God. …Zuinglius, the Swiss reformer, attested the comprehensiveness of his faith in the providence of the Supreme Being, in the cosmopolitan doctrine that the Holy Ghost was not excluded from the more worthy portion of the heathen world.
Admitting its truth, we cannot easily conceive a valid reason why a heathen, thus favored, should not be capable of true prophecy.””
H. P. Blavatsky
