October 3, 2005
The Fall Equinox reminds me life is transitory.
Everything changes. Some things are born and
others die. We're born and we pass away. In
between we either make spiritual progress or we
If you're thinking about making spiritual progress
in this lifetime, take a look at the Gnostic
Lessons being offered by the Universal Gnostic
Church (http://universalGnostic.com). These
lessons will open a lot of opportunities for you
to find and follow your own spiritual path as a
teacher, server, healer or agent for change.
While you're surfing around their site, you may
want to take a look at the Gnostic Fellowships,
Spiritual Orders and Organizations available to
you as well.
*** THE KABALLAH DEMYSTIFIED - Part Six ***
If you'd like a graphic picture of what we've been
discussing, take out a piece of paper and draw
three spheres on it. Place one sphere in the
middle at the top and the other two in the bottom
corners. Draw lines connecting these three
spheres. Number the top sphere "1" and the bottom
right sphere "3" and the bottom left sphere "6."
The line between 1 and 3 is labeled 2. The line
between 1 and 6 is labeled 4 and the bottom line
is labeled 5.
The Sixth Path is the bottom left sphere. It's
connected to the Sphere of Awareness at the top
through the Path of Memory or the Path of
Remembering. It's connected to the Sphere of
Intention on the right by the Path of Imagination.
The name of this Sixth Path is the Sphere of
Belief. When we Remember our Awareness and
Imagine the possibilities of our Intentions, we
come to Believe in ourselves. When we Remember
our Awareness and Imagine our Intentions, we
Believe anything is possible.
This is the creative process. It works like this:
By paying Attention (path 2) to our Awareness
(path 1) we start to form Intentions (path 3) for
ourselves and our lives. By Remembering (path 4)
our Awareness (path 1) and Imagining (path 5) our
Intentions (path 3) we Believe (path 6) in
everything. We believe in the Divine, in
ourselves and in the things we do.
These three spheres of Awareness (1), Intention
(3) and Belief (6) define the three absolute
requirements to do anything, to create anything,
to change anything, to improve ourselves. If we
are not aware (1) of the possibility, we can never
accomplish it. If we have no intention (3) to do
something, we cannot do it. If we do not believe
(6) we can, we can't. Awareness (1) is
everything. Intentions (3) are everything.
Belief (6) is everything.
These three paths of Paying Attention (2),
Remembering (4) and Imagining (5) are the ways in
which we are able to form Intentions (3) and
Beliefs (6) based on our Awareness (1). If we
don't pay attention (2) to the things of which we
become aware (1), we have nothing to intend (3).
If we don't remember (4) and imagine (5), we don't
have the tools to believe (6) in anything. Paying
Attention (2) is necessary. Remembering (4) is
everything. Imagining (5) is everything.
These six paths of three spheres and three paths
form an upward-pointing triangle. This triangle
is the World of Air. Each of these paths is
composed of Air and only Air. Air is Mind. It's
thoughts, ideas, concepts, attitudes, awareness,
intentions and beliefs. That's what Air is.
That's what the World of Air is all about.
The World of Air is the World of Archetypes. The
archetype for everything exists in this world,
because the archetype for anything is a thought,
an idea. Archetypes exist only in our thoughts
and ideas. We see them in our awareness. We
remember them. We imagine them. We pay attention
to them. We make intentions based on them and we
believe in them.
Our own Archetype exists in the World of Air.
That archetype we call our Spirit. Our Spirit is
our true and perfect ideal of what we can become.
It is our true and perfect Self. Our Spirit is
our True Self. Our Spirit is a thought in the
Mind of the Divine. We truly are Children of the
