Hello gnostic brothers! Shalom Aleichem!
I have a question concerning something said in the lecture Four Ways of Spiritual Life.
I have always thought that the sole mission of the Being is to self-realise. But in the lecture it is said:
Not all Monads in heaven want Self-realization or liberation for their Essences. When in this physical plane an Essence, soul, consciousness, is searching for spiritual knowledge, searching for the way in order to attain Self-realization, it is because its inner Monad wants to Self-realize. The Monad exerts pressure upon its Essence. The Essence is the consciousness. The Monad is the Spirit.
I have contemplated on this for a while, and my answer to this would be the fact that not every person is ready for self-realisation - maybe due to karmic reasons, or personal preference etc. But I am still a tad bit confused. How come not all Monads want to self-realise?
Am I missing something?
Also, whilst I have a question open, is there any way I can get information on what colours symbolise? and what colours relate to? In my research on gnosis I have not come across too much on colours, so it is an area I am quite vague on. I would appreciate it greatly if I could get some help on this matter.
Thank-you for you time
and kudos for the marvelous work you beautiful people put into this site! Much praise. God-bless you all!
