The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37) The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit,the true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirits work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26); remind you, hypomimnesko (15:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elancho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13) speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirits initiatives imply Gods personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit informed community. The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13- 15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christs (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded. (Stevick 2011, 292-4)

The AA logo, inspired by the Sanskrit term Aadah Akash or Half the Sky, i.e., half of humanity, serves as a potent emblem of women empowerment and enlightenment. It encapsulates the spirit of the Divine Mother, the wellspring of love, wisdom, and power. This symbol champions gender equality and underscores womens entitlement to respect, dignity, and freedom.

Incorporating four hues of green, the logo signifies the four elements of Mother Nature: earth, water, air, and fire. Women, as custodians of these elements, bear the sacred responsibility to protect and nurture them.

The saffron triangle with a red apex within the logo embodies the Divine Mother and Sahasrara the pinnacle chakra of pure Consciousness. The Divine Mother, revered as the ultimate deity, showers Her blessings on those who seek Her within.

The AA initials nestled within this triangle suggest that women are under the comprehensive protection and guidance of the Divine Mother. She aids them in navigating lifes hurdles and challenges.

The blue backdrop of the logo symbolizes the sky an emblem of freedom and boundlessness. Followers of the AA path are individuals who have achieved spiritual liberation and life eternal (jivanmukti) through the awakening of the Mother Kundalini or the rebirth/resurrection of the Holy Spirit within them while they are still living. This is their last earthly journey before they embark on an endless journey of happiness and discovery in Her spiritual kingdom, also referred to as the Kingdom of God.

The Paraclete

Divine Instruction, Stephen Witmer

and eschatological divine instruction

“Here, the Paraclete and Holy Spirit are clearly identified. The future tense of the verbs in 14.26 is notable; the Spirit's activity is said to be (from Jesus' perspective) in the future... the teaching of the Holy Spirit/Paraclete, because it is understood as the continuation of Jesus' teaching, is also regarded as the fulfillment of the promise of eschatological divine instruction... The didactic storyline of the Fourth Gospel suggests that in order ... ”

The Spirit 'comes from' God (15:26; 16:7, 13). The Spirit can be 'received' or 'welcomed,' as Jesus was received; believers are said to 'know' and, most peculiarly, to 'see' the Spirit (14:16-17).
