<p>Genesis 1:18-2:2<br /> Can you explain how we should comprehend the ages of the prophet Abraham, Adam and his sons as well as others?   I mean shall we take it literally?  For example:   Adam lived nine hundred and thirty years, "And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died. <br />  </p>

Going back to one of your other questions, people die early because they waste their energies. In the past, there were people who lived for centuries, since in esoteric science we know that through the conservation of one's forces, one can create the elixir of long life, or the fountain of youth referred to in Yoga and alchemy. On the other hand, those ages in the Bible are also Kabbalistic: they refer to initiatic stages on the path to liberation. 900 is a very elevated number, related with the Ninth Arcanum of the Tarot. Hundreds of years refers to, in this tradition, the initiations of Major Mysteries, which are very serious developments. You can read more about this in the works of Samael Aun Weor.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"

Gnosis is very new to me. There is so much I have to learn, grasp and understand, I'm just a baby,.... and I fill blessed to receive this knowledge, even though I feel as if I know nothing, most of the time.
