Cosmic Balance, Masculine and Feminine Principles, Part 3/7

– on the higher plane masculine and feminine are one.
Those who work successfully with the Ten feel rich and fulfilled, for Ten is the number of marriage. But the marriage that is the goal of human aspirations, this union with a being who is the perfect complement to oneself, must first be achieved within oneself. How can one be inwardly married in order to form a Ten? To whom or what must one be wedded?
This is the essential question. Every human being must be married. There must be not a single bachelor, not a single spinster left on earth. And the marriage to which we must all aspire is that of matter and of God within us, the marriage of our body and our spirit.

Spirit and Matter… The two principles, masculine and feminine, are at the origin of creation. No creation of any kind is possible with only one principle. The two have to be united in a common endeavour. The two principles exist first of all on the higher plane. They are what we call the heavenly Father and the divine Mother, and they are constantly engendering worlds inhabited by countless creatures. On the physical plane the masculine is distinct and apart from the feminine, but on the higher plane masculine and feminine are one.




The masculine principle is and must always remain first, therefore. It means that the primordial principle (spirit) emerged from its state of extreme subtlety in order to be condensed, and in condensing created another principle (matter).
But this does not give men a reason to flatter themselves or women a reason to feel belittled. I am talking about the masculine principle, not about men. And the myth of original sin is also about principles, not about man and woman as such. All the misfortunes of human beings come from their refusal to accept the hierarchy of the universe. It is about reversing the proper order of the two principles.

Perhaps some of you will think that all this is very complicated. On the contrary, it is all very simple, very clear. If it seems complicated to you, it is because you are not accustomed to thinking and reasoning in the light of the great universal symbols.
To be continued…

    I understand that it is all about the principles, not about people but still, in the Bible the light manifests out of the darkness, which makes me think that if we need to put things in order, the darkness has been first. There is also the day in the Biblical sense starting with the evening… it came to be an evening, it came to be a morning: day one. In the Jewish tradition a day also starts from sunset to sunset. Our physical Sun is manifestation of the dark, invisible Sun, the Source of all. I, personally, think that the absolute is neither light, nor darkness but both the opposite poles have sprouted from manifestation.
    Actually there are 3 suns, not two: cosmic, central and physical, it is such a mystery, complicated to the mind but probably very simple to be grasped on another level. It is wonderful article. Thank you for sharing!

    In some lectures, the Master mentioned that the sun (the visible one we see every day) is in fact not hot at all, and he also talks about the invisible sun and the invisible light which allows us to see this physical sun, the physical world, etc…
    In his book 36, ‘Angels and other Mysteries of The Tree of Life’, he covered many mysteries of the Kabbalah that explains the creation of our universe, planets, etc… Thanks for sharing your comments dear Luba
