HERMETIC  - ESOTERIC - MYSTICAL PHILOSOPHIES


THE PERFECT MODEL AND CONSCIOUSNESS

PART : 3

A DIVINE PERFECT MODEL

"Or The Consciousness of Pure Being-ness"
   

( Remember that for your Perfect Model to "appear" and become part of your ordinary level of consciousness, your ego must first let go of distorted  "models" and let itself "merge" with the center of pure Being.) .  

An other advice, is that you cannot turn to God or your pure center of Being [or, the Self] without turning away your attention  from the little ego self, - from the "me" and "mine"...

A REMINDER AND AN IMPORTANT ADVICE ON THE PRACTICE

To unfold the "Perfect Model" is a step in the right direction... it helps you to RESONATE with the concealed Energy of your sacred Image.. your concentration may help you to merge into a state of openness and alert passivity, in which true contemplation becomes possible, but on the other hand, it could result in some kind of false, incomplete or confused contemplation... Just be aware that the divine Ground of all being reveals itself only to those in whom there is no ego-concentration of any kind of volition, thought or feeling...

This truth is summed up when Meister Eckhart says: " He who seeks God under settled form lays hold of the form, while missing the God concealed in it. " The point clearly is to seek God or the Source of Being provisionally  under a form which from the beginning is clearly recognized as merely a SYMBOL OF REALITY,  a mere signboard or a pointer that must some time or other be discarded in favor of what it stands for : " To seek Him under a settled form - settled because regarded as the very shape of Reality - is to commit oneself to illusion and a kind of idolatry."

Love came and like blood filled my veins and tissues, Emptied me of myself and filled me with the Friend, The friend has taken possession of every atom of my being. The name is all that I have left now all the rest is He.

Truth did not come into the world naked, but it came in the types and images. It will not receive it in any other fashion. There is a rebirth and an image of rebirth. It is fitting for those who do not only receive the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, but have obtained them for themselves. If anyone does not obtain them for himself, the name also will be taken from him. But one receives them in the chrism of the fullness of the power of the Cross, which the apostles call the right and the left. For this one is no longer a Christian but a Christ.
