The Eternal Feminine Principle



Samael Aun Weor

"Each of us has his Individual, Particular Divine Mother. She, in herself, is a part of our Being, but a derived part. All ancient people adored God-Mother. That Eternal Feminine Principle is Isis, Mary, Tonantzin, Cybele, Rhea, Adonia, Insoberta, etc. If in the mere physical world we have a father and a mother, in the most profound part of our Being we also have our Father who is in Secret and our Divine Mother Kundalini. There are as many Fathers in Heaven as there are men on Earth. God-Mother, in our own interior, is the feminine aspect of the Father who is in secret."...

All those mothers that we have had throughout innumerable births... it seems as if they would have definitely been lost in time; however, truthfully, all of them are the living expression of the Great Cosmic Mother. In the eyes of our Devi Kundalini Shakti, our individual, particular Cosmic Mother, we see the glow of all the eyes of the innumerable mothers that we have had in the past. In her (our Divine Mother Kundalini), in her (our particular Isis), are represented all those dear mothers that have loved us throughout countless centuries. This is the reason why we should really love our Cosmic Mother, the living representation of the Eternal Feminine Principle. All the dear mothers that have seen to us throughout the course of history, all of them that sang lullabies to us, all those that fed us, are, deep down, one and the same: Isis (whom no mortal has ever yet unveiled), Neith, the Blessed God-Mother of the World. If we think about that Eternal Feminine Principle, about God-Mother, we see that our particular God-Mother is a Ray of that Blessed God-Mother of the World.

In this manner, then, the Eternal Feminine Principle that has seen to our needs throughout so many centuries, that has rocked us in so many cradles, is she: our Divine Mother. All the dear mothers we have had, all the mothers we have had throughout diverse eras are personified in her. Fortunately, we have not lost them, they have remained in our Divine Mother.

And in what manner can we come closer to our Divine Mother? Before anything else, dear brothers, learning to love our earthly mother (as the starting point) since she is the living representation of the Eternal Feminine Principle; learning to love all the dear mothers of the world. And when it comes to us males, learning to see in each woman a mother, to see in them the living representation of the Eternal Feminine Principle, because if we see a woman and the first thing that comes to mind is lust,...then we are insulting the Eternal Feminine Principle, ...we are ill-treating the being who is wholly love. Let us reflect my dear brothers, let us reflect... Let us make ourselves worthy, if we really and truly want to walk with Devi Kundalini Shakti. Then our hearts, aglow with love, will come close to her and she to us.

If people had their consciousness awakened, they would know how to appreciate that being who is the mother; however, people have their consciousness asleep and because of this are incapable of really appreciating the being who is the mother. It is necessary then to become more conscious each time of what the Eternal Feminine Principle is."

Samael Aun Weor, The Eternal Feminine Principle


ALL RELIGIONS ARE PRECIOUS PEARLS STRUNG ON THE GOLDEN THREAD OF DIVINITY.

Mother Mary
"The mission of Gnosticism in this age is to deliver the method and means for the work of the realization of the inner Man in each one of us; the attainment of this transcendental objective depends on our cooperation with the Being.

The divorce between science and art, philosophy and mysticism has provoked the deterioration of this generation. We don't appreciate the poetry of nature, the harmony that emanates from the universe, and so human relations have become cold: our heart is unmoved by human suffering.

The Gnostic teachings are based on the communion between science, art, philosophy and mysticism; they seek to rescue the highest values of the human being in order to be able to comprehend that life is empty without the pursuit of transcendence and the self-realization of the Being.

This would not be possible without the development of superior emotion, which humanizes science, sublimates art, elevates philosophy and crystallizes mysticism.

Gnosis is the poetry of inner beauty, the rose of philosophy, the light of science and the mystical eternal spring.

Gnosis as Science

The method of Gnostic science is experimentation or the objective knowledge of things. Its object of study is the universe and all that exists. It utilizes scientific meditation and other vehicles for the experimentation and direct observation of the object of study. Gnosis studies things in themselves, beyond their three-dimensional aspect.

It studies hermetic (Gnostic) anthropology, which is completely different from official (materialist and evolutionist) anthropology.

Gnostic science studies Cosmogenesis and objectively knows the origin of worlds, suns, and universes; and, in particular, the Ors solar system, in which we live and have our Being.

It studies the human machine and the conditions of its five centers: intellect, emotion, movement, instinct and sex. It studies endocrinology and medicine (the causes of disease and their cure). Everything passes through the crucible of Gnosis.

Gnosis as Art

The objective of art is the pursuit of beauty in its different manifestations. Art is the faithful testimony of that great human work which we call culture. Gnosis is present in all the great works of universal literature and in the works of the geniuses of music, painting, sculpture and architecture.

We find Gnostic art in archaic settlements, in the pyramids and ancient obelisks of the Egypt of the pharaohs; in ancient Mexico, among the Mayans and the archaeological remains of the Aztecs, Zapotecs, Toltecs, etc.; amidst the ancient medieval parchments of the Chinese, Phoenicians, Assyrians, etc.; in the hieroglyphs and bas-reliefs of ancient cultures; in the painting and sculpture of the Renaissance; in the music of Beethoven, Mozart, Liszt, Wagner; in the great works of universal literature, in the Iliad and the Odyssey of Homer, in Dante's Divine Comedy and in many others, which contain the same principles of universal wisdom, presented in diverse forms and sometimes hidden behind the veil of philosophical symbolism.

There are two types of art: the first is subjective art, the expression of a conditioned consciousness; the second is the (royal) regal art of nature, a transcendental art that reflects the wisdom of the universe.

Without art as a testimony, the philosophy, science and mysticism of our ancestors would not have been able to reach us. Gnosis removes the symbolic veil with which they are covered, revealing to us the cosmic truth that brings us face to face with our destiny.

Transcendental Mysticism

We must make a clear distinction between religious forms and religious principles. Religious principles are living cosmic formulas and religious forms are the diverse systems or ways of teaching these principles.

Gnosis studies the science of religions and attempts to reach the religious depths of ancient cultures. It seeks the connection of the Soul with the inner Real Being, the divinity that exists in each human. This involves great efforts in trying to eliminate the"I"of experimental psychology. Only then is this inner connection, spoken of by the ancient sages, possible.

Gnostic religiousness is totally scientific, highly philosophical and profoundly artistic; it pursues wisdom, the divine within us. If we do not discover God in us, we will not find Him anywhere else. This is self-gnosis, the knowledge of oneself, which ultimately is the knowledge of God.

Gnosis as Philosophy

Philosophy, in spite of its divisions (logic, ethics, aesthetics, etc.), is, in and of itself, evident reflection, mystical knowledge of the Being, and a conscious functionalism of the awakened consciousness.

Philosophy is love for wisdom. Its method is introspection, which leads to the direct experience of Truth.

Philosophy must answer the great questions of existence: Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going?

As philosophy, Gnosis is, in reality, a function of the consciousness and as such it arises in every place on the earth. Gnostic philosophy is expressed in the Vedas of India, in the prophesies of the Hebrew people, in the Tao Te Ching and in the Platonic Dialogues, in the theology of the Gospel of St. John and in the Mahayana, in Plotinus and in the Areopagite, among the Persian Sufis and the Christian mystics of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The perennial philosophy has spoken almost all the languages of Asia and Europe and has used the most important terminologies and traditions in order to always be present in all the religions and philosophies of the earth.

Gnostic Anthropology

Anthropology is, in the modern age, the best means to study man and his origins, what man himself is, and the imprint he has left through culture.

Anthropology has two fields of investigation: one inquires about the origin of life through its theories of evolution, the laws of heredity, the scale of geological time and through the human races, and is called physical anthropology; the second field deals with man, the prehistoric culture of the old and new world, family, society, religion, magic, art and language, and is known by the name of cultural anthropology.

We also find a great variety of auxiliary branches that complement the previous ones.

Anthropology, being subject to the observations and alterations of the experimental sciences, has given rise over time to diverse types of anthropology, which often times contradict, each other.

This whole long process of the study of man and his origins is ultimately the study of man according to man. Its results will always be contradictory and diverse and will never be able to arrive at a definitive conclusion.

In order to arrive at a complete knowledge of the object of study (man) we depend on an instrument which itself is unknown: the very same man.

If we want concrete and definitive answers about the origin of life, man, the races, and the meaning of existence, we need a distinct study: to study man from the perspective of the consciousness, the study of oneself, and this will permit us to know at the same time the origin of life and the universe. Man is con-substantial with the universe; one is contained in the other.

This axiom is and always will be the basis of philosophy. Why should it be different for science? All the more reason why science should change its methods now that it faces a new challenge: to know the universe of the infinitely small, which is to say, the return to the inner universe.

The new anthropology is the study of man through himself, utilizing the faculties of the consciousness that lie dormant, awaiting the moment to be awakened.

Thanks to Gnostic Anthropology we can know the archetypes of different civilizations in order to arrive at the original source of knowledge common to all ethnic groups, and at the relationship of this wisdom with man and the cosmos.

This is the specific objective that the GNOSTIC ASSOCIATION Samael Aun Weor proposes: to teach the appropriate didactics and dialectics for the study of man and his environment."

Who is Samael Aun Weor?

Contemporary Latin-American philosopher born in 1917, Samael Aun Weor had a cultural formation focused in the rigorous, practical application of the inner search, which in this sense, could not be any other way but a self-didactic.

Samael Aun Weor is the author of a great number of literary works of a psychological, philosophical, anthropological and scientific framework. His style as a writer has a great synthetic power and for this reason, in some social sectors, he is known as the"Master of the Synthesis".
