THE WOMAN WILL PREPARE THE ADVENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We have observed through the study of the ‘Holy Scriptures‘ how responsible and important every woman is for the salvatory plan of God. Be she, single or married, in religious clothing or not, she has always a mission of educator to fulfill, but we say even more: all women are important, because the Church of the new times awaits the Comforter even before the eschatological return of the Son of God. They must prepare a point on the earth, where there will take place the decisive manifestation of the Holy Spirit. In the Cenacle of the Pentecost, the Spirit radiated over the Apostles because there was Mary, mother of Jesus. With the exceptional descent of the heavenly fire, there was created the hierarchic Church, but the Church was already there, because there was the Virgin Mary. The descent for the Advent of the Holy Spirit will have its female forerunners, as Jesus the Christ had his prophets, his precursors and his sibyls. These forerunners and prophetesses will be chosen among the most suitable women, formed by the doctrine and the ascesis of Archeosophy, but always in strict collaboration with the masculine element. We believe that every woman must be vigilant and keep herself ready for the call from on high, for the voice of the vocation, and keep her attention on the mission of the Virgin Mary in the economy of the universal salvation. The woman must ask herself the question if She too has been chosen to cooperate towards this same salvation, which is the good of all. The great works of God to be developed need evolved, and therefore suitable, people: women and men in perennial apostolic activity. A Woman, Mary, prepared the coming of the Word in the souls and in the Church. Well, a Woman will be the Messiah that will incarnate the Divine Mother, whose Advent must be prepared by you, by the women of the one and indivisible Ecclesia, the Church of Peter, John and Paul, the Archeosophical Ecclesia. A Woman, the Most Holy Mary, prepared the coming of the Word in the souls and in the Church. The earthly mother of Jesus, let this be clear, belongs to the class of the precursors and cooperators, not of the mediators, because as St. Paul wrote in the First Letter to Timothy (2:5-6) “…. there is only one God and one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus, He himself a man, who gave himself in ransom for all….”.

The serpent of the Genesis, ahrimanic symbol

The serpent, ahrimanic symbol, was ready to suggest to and convince Aîshah of the omnipotence of her companion Aîsh, and of her own omnipotence: to create, to become similar to God. The Tree of the Knowledge, its fruits, the serpent or nahash, in the Mosaic symbolism, equals Ahrimanic and Luciferic powers. At this point, it would be useful to explain some things: in the man, act ahrimanic influxes, that is inclinations to the materiality, to the sensuality; and also other particular, contrary inclinations: to the independence, to the boundless freedom, to the ascesis, called luciferic. The Ahrimanic powers manifest themselves in the mineral, vegetal kingdoms, only as a cause of barrenness, desiccation and death; in the human kingdom, they work to detach the soul as much as possible from the world of the spirit, in order to incorporate it wholly into their materially free world (the serpent). The seduction is exerted with the sensitivity, the sensuality, the corporeality, the tangibility, the formalism, the idolatry, etc. The Luciferic spiritual powers want to completely detach the human soul from the senses, from the world of the senses, leading it to the pride, to the titanism, the anarchic, autarchic spiritual attitude, hostile to the order of the world. The complicity of Eve in the sin against the Orderer, the Creator, was of an extreme gravity, being a sin of egoism, of haughtiness, of titanism and, at the same time, of materialism. The evil intelligence had suggested to Eve that the world had been created by God, but that she with Adam could replace God. Become equal to the Creator! Deeming themselves independent creators, they used a power, called by the Kabbalists: the Sefira Malkhuth(1). There started a creation which did not conform to the will and the intelligence of God, but to that of the cosmic human couple. Therefore, the custodians of the Old and New Testament have fought with reason and with full educational right the three deadly tendencies and actions: the egoism, the self-conceit and the black magic. And Christ, the second Adam, came to preach: the love, the humility and the faithful abandon in the Will of God Father. (1) T. PALAMIDESSI- ELEMENTS OF THE KABBALISTIC TRADITION- Booklet 23.

THE PRIMORDIAL WOMAN IN THE MYTH OF THE FALL OF ADAM AND EVE

The Genesis of Moses transports us beyond the time and the space into an ultraphysic world, when the earth on which we live was not even an incandescent mass, and the solar system had no physical consistency, but was modeled in the nothingness. In this metaphysical world, let us imagine with Moses an Adam created and put in a wonderful garden in the company of animals, birds, trees, but alone, without a companion of his kind. A unique Adam, but enclosing in himself she who had to be his woman: Eve. An Androgynous Adam, that is, male and female, active and attractive.
Around him everything was already split according to the pre-established models of the archetypal creation, that is, not yet materialized. Also the animal kingdom had been carried into effect in its variety, therefore it was necessary that the androgynous Adam, one and alone, enter into the duality to be individualized in accordance with the universal law of the ideal creation. Besides, he himself wanted a companion of his own kind, and God Father-Mother granted her to him. He put him in a state of lethargic sleep, and from the luminous, ethereal body of Adam he undoubled the feminine part. There were now two Adams, one of which took the name of Eve. It was a mysterious delivery of the female. But attention, do not fall into the temptation of imagining the first man and the first woman the same as we are. That creation was in the world of the ideas. The primordial creation, the undoubling of the Adamic unity, presupposes that we project ourselves into another dimension. We have said ‘dimension’. What is it? The dimensions are expressions of power. The man imprisoned in a three-dimensional form (height, width, depth) and a specific weight due to the density, sees and considers all things in the light of the three dimensions, because for him is valid only the physical-vital quantity. The defunct, that is the disincarnated ones, free from their material physical body and from those energetic (etheric, astral, mental), live only in the fourth dimension, or in a purely spiritual, ethereal (not etheric) state, and therefore potential, which makes possible that penetration of the bodies not permitted by the physical laws. The dimensions are several: ten, as many as the Sefirot of the Kabbalà. The Eden, or earthly Paradise, and the Heavenly Eden, or New Jerusalem, are in one of these dimensions.
In the undoubling(1), Adam underwent an alienation of that part of himself that we have defined feminine, attractive, the passive element by which Adam was individualized. Attention! We are abiding by a vision ideal, not material, in what we are expounding. The will of Adam had two qualities: one masculine or expansive, and the other feminine or attractive. From one, they became two volitive, intellective principles. Adam, seeing himself reflected in Eve, took consciousness of himself. If he had remained androgynous (male and female in unity), it would have been impossible for him to acquire the free will, and to accomplish a further development through his auxiliary force emanated by himself.
In the Hebrew language, that used to write the Bible, the masculine part of the individualized Adam takes the name of Aîsh, and that feminine  Aîshah. Therefore, even if until now we have been naming Eve, this name must be taken with another meaning (Hewah = elementary existence), that is, what constitutes the origin of everything which constitutes this existence.
Following the universal law, the relations between male and female manifest themselves with a union or with an opposition: the two-fold human aspect. In the intellectual generation, the woman is the fecundator of the man. He takes the impulse to think and to act from the communion, or from the contrast with her. The more or less secret mainspring of the masculine will is always the woman, who mostly lets the man decide consciously or unconsciously, directly or indirectly. In the generation of the flesh, the male is the positive pole, and in this sense he is active, while the woman is passive and constitutes the negative pole. The male fecundates the female when their bodies find themselves in a state of union and of opposition at the same time, and the child of the flesh is born, by the work of the female, from this union-opposition. The male and the female, when they are in union, truly constitute the unity in the body, in the soul and in the spirit. This is the only temporary androgynous moment mentioned also by Jesus: “The Creator in the beginning created them male and female, and said: – Therefore the man shall leave father and mother and shall unite with his wife and the two shall be one flesh –” (Matthew, 19: 4-5).
In the Eden, there were the Trees, one of the Life, symbol of the Intelligence of God and of the life of Grace, and Adam and Eve had to nourish themselves with its fruits. The two volitive faculties had to adhere perfectly to God. There was also a Tree of the Knowledge of the Good and of the Evil, forbidden, under pain of materialization, death, what in India is called Samsâra or the becoming of the cosmos: the fall into a phenomenic world, ruled by the law of the Karma or destiny, that is, the correlation between action and reaction; the crushing in the ‘Wheel of Existence’ intuited by the Buddha.
The poisonous, forbidden fruit, is the blind egoism, the burning cupidity, which brings forth the self-conceit, the anarchic sense, the black magic.
In the Androgynous state, Adam was creator. What he ideated was realized in that metaphysical world, and because his masculine and feminine will adhered to the Intelligence of God that which he ideated was good. Adam, creature of light, had to achieve a work, but once he was undoubled he yielded to the deceptive inducements of the forms and of the senses, making himself a slave of the phantoms of the matter, falling into the abysses of the illusion, of the Maya and of the Samsâra. The III Chapter of the Genesis, v. 1-7, unveils the nature of the original sin: the black magic and the self-conceit of believing oneself omnipotent. Adam, through his volitive faculty Aîsh, was able to realize his thoughts, transferring them from potentiality to action. All that Adam wanted, existed. Adam, split into Aîsh and Aîshah, acquired an independent individuality: he could freely manifest himself. But the will of Adam could not be homogeneous with the creative faculty of God, otherwise he would have been God. Therefore, he could do everything with his will, except to create himself. He was not the source of the life, but a reflection. God had warned him that he, Adam, was the master of the whole universe and that his very body was the Âdamah universe. The unique and homogeneous vital substance in all the creation, this substance Moses calls âdamah. We said that Adam must not touch the center of the creation because, not being able to understand and dominate the two-fold principle of the good and the evil, he must keep himself steadfast with the intelligence orientated towards the coincidence of the opposites, that ends in the unity and identity by grace, correct the biblical interpretation of St. Gregory of Nyssa.

The traditional Myth and esotericism

The traditional Myth is always a key that few can undertake to make use of, because it belongs to the world of esotericism. The word ‘myth’ derives from the Greek μύϑος, mitos, that is tale, fable. The mythology was born with the man, and may be considered a secret language and a necessary element of the religion, with the purpose of handing down, from generation to generation, the profound teachings on the origin of the things, of the creation of the world, of the man, of the woman, the intimate life of God, and the methods for protecting the operating spirituality of the humankind.
Myth and cult are two elements soldered to the religious fact. The cult presents itself as the expression of that mystical emotion which is specific to the religion. The myth is the rational comment of the acts of the cult, transmitted through the centuries by means of a fabric of symbols. Of these, the wise know the meaning, but the popular mass of believers hold fideistically to the plot of the mythic tale, because they are not able with the sole force of the reason to penetrate the occult significance of the myth. Besides, the myth is part of an oral or rarely written tradition, for the few who read in it as in an open book. If the chain of sapiential transmission should be interrupted, then the understanding of the myth could be favored by meditating on it: a meditation which calls, in the Initiate, for an inspired intuition.   The myths were conceived by the great priests of the past, when the necessity prevailed of veiling the divine Revelation. However, also today in fully modern times, there is no lack of instances of new additions of a mythical character in the Catholic religion itself, we do not know whether deliberately or unconsciously. Later, when the times are ripe and the minds open, the myth is substituted by a mental creation more ample, more accessible, more moral, to arrive at the value of a metaphysical system. The old myth remains like an obsolete thing, understandable only on condition that it be allegorized as the receptacle of a high religious and moral teaching, or else degraded to the rank of  fable.
In all the religions, some myths persist, that even today have their strength and represent closed or mute books for those who are inexpert in this field. Of the myth, the Alchemists made use to conceal, from those who were not ready, the phases, the operations of transmutation of the ordinary consciousness into an initiatic super-consciousness. But the woman Archeosopher, to fulfill her work, must needs become a knower of myths and, obviously, a decipherer of the myth. Continue Reading

Feminine adepthood in Judaism and Christianity

In the primitive Mosaism, it is well known that the female Initiations existed. Mary,  sister of Moses and Aaron, was an Initiate and a member of the Council of God (Numbers, 12: 2; Exodus, 15: 20). The symbols of that time were the doves, the turtledoves, the lambs, which the women sacrificed to Jehovah.
The priestly role of Mary, the first among the Dancers of Israel, indicates the work of Moses in the defense of the old dogma of Ram on the equality and the indissoluble union of the Masculine with the Feminine, in the social State as in Iêvê.
Following the example of Samuel, founder of the Jewish school of the Prophetism, the Roman matrons gave life in ancient Rome to the first school of the Christian Apostolate. Of this meritorious institution speaks Saint Jerome, Doctor of the Church, who died in Bethlehem on the 30th September 420. In this seminary directed by women descendants of the patrician families, were initiated the free priests of Christ in the esotericism of the sacred sciences.
The fundamental parity of the sexes before God, has no more need to be discussed: “For as many of you as have been baptized in Christ – says St. Paul –you have clothed yourselves with Christ… So there is no more … neither man nor woman” (Gal. 3: 27-28). One of the aims of the religion and of the Archeosophical Initiation is for the woman, in relation to God, to acquire a ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ spirituality; for the man, a ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ spirituality. If they do not arrive to such a point, they should consider themselves spiritually and initiatically mutilated, and in discord with God. Continue Reading

Marriage and Initiation

Between the marriage of two creatures and the Initiation there is a certain analogy. There is always the action of the masculine and feminine polarity. In the baptism, meant as Christian initiation, there is always in act the bipolar action. So it is in the horizontal Initiation, or human. This is more effective if given by two Initiators of different sexes. The reason for this lies in the fact that the woman during the rite awakens in the man, by the law of the polarity, his latent, sleeping feminine aspect. What we have said is a secret un-occulted, revealed for the first time, and to you women.
After the fall from the Edenic state, the souls derived from the couple Adam-Eve entered into the involutive-evolutive (descent and ascent) double current, though still bearing the imprint, the divine masculine and feminine image.
The souls are specialized in the two sexes, but carry, in the latent state, the nature of the opposite sex. In substance: the man is man, but with a feminine tone; the woman is woman, but with a masculine tone. The Initiation must reconstruct the state of androgen. We must not forget: in the metaphysical Universe exist the Eternal Masculine and the Eternal Feminine. The Marian cult is a vague popular intuition of the Eternal Feminine, the re-surfacing of a very ancient cult of the feminine aspect of the Divinity, and the demonstration that the Woman has her decisive and noblest part in the evolution and ascesis of all the humankind.

Pythagoras and the importance of the Woman as an Initiate and Adept

Archeosofica‘ takes care to underline the importance of the Woman as an Initiate and Adept. In India, as in Tibet, the woman is admitted among the Initiates, and has the function of an Initiator. In distant times, when the schools of perfection and of sanctification refused women the right to the Initiation, and relegated them among the mediums and the sibyls, one of the greatest geniuses and Initiates in history, Pythagoras, declared the woman suitable for the celebration of the Mysteries and for the initiatic life. This happened 500 years before Christ.
Pythagoras was born in Samos in 571 and died in Metapontum in 497. A mathematical genius, he prepared the way for the Essenes of the Dead Sea, and for the Therapeutics of Egypt.
Pythagoras did not see only the maternity in the woman, but the precious collaborator, the wonderful companion with whom to climb side by side the steps of the Temple of the human perfection, up to the apotheosis of the Adepthood and of the Theosis. Therefore, he had the courage to tell the women of Crotone that the Initiation was open to the mothers, to the single and to all women who felt the urgent need and the necessity to face the catharsis (purification), demanded by the ascesis, and make themselves Goddesses, that is, Daughters of God. The expression of Pythagoras recalls the Psalm, 82: 6, which says: “I have said: You are gods, all children of the Most High.” And Jesus used the same language when they were about to stone him: “Is it not written in your law: – I said: you are gods -? If He called gods those to whom the word of God was directed, and the Scripture cannot be annulled, to whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, you say: You blaspheme, because I said: I am the Son of God?” (John, 10: 34-36). If Christ places the man on the same level as the woman, both as image and likeness of God, both are considered gods and Children of God if they adhere to His Holy Will.
  Pythagoras knew what he was saying, and speaking more of him, it is not too much to affirm that some ancient authors: Porphyry, Iamblichus and even Clement of Alexandria in his Stromata testify to the excellence of the Pythagorean women, especially Théano of Crete, wife of Pythagoras; his two daughters, Damos and Arignotés; Timychias of Sparta, an Initiate and a martyr under the tyranny of Dionysius.
Pythagoras considered the women to be gifted with excellent intuition and with a contemplative spirit, and he himself, as Aristossenes narrates, learned most of the moral doctrines and of the secrets of the ascesis and theurgy from Temistocleas, priestess of Delphi. It was she who made him understand the Woman in the Initiation. Perhaps because of that happy capability of his, to appraise the initiatic value of the feminine element, he became a strenuous defender of the woman. But he was afraid of provoking equivocal situations, and therefore he made the communities of the female Initiates separate from those of the male Initiates. Continue Reading

THE INITIATION FOR THE WOMAN AND THE FEMININE ADEPTHOOD

Initiation’ means to start a new life, to enter into contact with the world of the spirit, to see the Kingdom of God. It is the beginning of a work in which there are engaged all the forces of the physical body, of the soul and of the spirit, with the personal help of an instructor or Master, whose function is to bring a consciousness to the appointment of love with the Divinity.
We have amply explained what the Initiation consists of, so we will not repeat it, but we remember that in every human being, no matter whether woman or man, there are psycho-spiritual organs in correspondence with the hormone glands, which, once made to function, guarantee the vision of the hereafter, the memory of the past existences, and the condition of the saint who can converse with the Spirits of Light and secure the beatitude of Paradise, although continuing to live on the earth. In this state, in the old age the passage beyond the earthly frontier, will be like the flight of an angel. Such a condition is reached passing through the preparations and the gradual exercises, adapt to the grade of pupil or Disciple, of Initiate, that is of a person who has entered into the heart of the secret practices, and finally to the grade of Master and Perfect Master or Adept. Well, if all of this was reserved for the man, with Archeosophy it is the privilege also of the Woman. Therefore you, women who read these pages, know that your constancy in following the doctrine and the instructions shown in our booklets, will conduct you during this very life to the most regal and wonderful realizations.
We are used to value the greatness of a person by what he was and became through his personal effort and the help of someone. A youth who douses himself with gasoline, and transforms himself into a living torch to awaken his compatriots in order that they defend their liberty; a Saint Francis of Assisi and a Saint Clara, who choose the poverty, and offer themselves to mystical ascesis by helping their neighbor; a Saint Paul and a Joan of Arc, who face martyrdom for a supreme ideal; an Ipathia, a Pythagoras, a Saint Theresa of Avila, a Dante, a Virgil, a Buddha, and many others, they have all the qualities. Well, the Initiate and the female Initiate, enclose in a single person the best of them. The Initiation is the overcoming of a condition of human limitation, the arrival at a different state, in which, besides the wisdom, the charity, the fortitude, one has the gifts or charismata of the prophecy, of the thaumaturgy, of the bilocation, the vision of God.
The Lord awaits our visit because we are His Children. Jesus is the guide, the supreme Master, but the handling of the ship, excellent or poor according to our voluntary preparation, is ours. The landing at the end of our earthly life lived as Initiates, is done in pairs, because in the heart of God Father-Mother one enters in two. Continue Reading

WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS BETWEEN THE ORDINARY WOMAN AND THE INITIATED ONE

The ordinary woman has the same spiritual insufficiencies of the ordinary man. She is born and dies in the suffering, in thr drudgery, worried about the home, the family, far away from the religious studies and the extraordinary religious life. She ignores the science of the spirit, that is Archeosophy, and those methods that would save her from a gray, uncertain destiny, with wasted existences. The ordinary woman is a creature tossed about like the remains of a shipwreck lashed by the breakers of the cosmic life. She too is forced, like the ordinary man, to pass from existential cycle to existential cycle, ground by the destiny, immersed in the semi-consciousness and the frightening dreams of the crepuscular life of the death, until, terrified by the play of these demonic images, she flees again towards the earth, to be incarnated in a new body. Nor can she be saved by an elementary religiousness, based on the fear of a hell, that renders the individual a coward in front of God and their own conscience. It is not so for the Initiated woman, animated by the aspiration to cooperate with the divine intelligence, true superwoman, missionary of the Christ, in the full possession of the Wisdom, of the Charity and of the spiritual powers of the ultraphanic clairvoyance.

THE MYSTERY OF THE RESURRECTION AND THE WOMAN

Another episode which bears witness to the importance of the woman is the resurrection of Christ. The fact is known by all. Here we want to emphasize the first meeting between the Avatar and a human being: the meeting of the resurrected Messiah did not take place with the men, with the apostles. It was the pious women who looked for him in the sepulcher, to anoint him, and not finding him, informed the most significant apostles, the truly intimate: Peter and John. But, Jesus was not there even for them. The privilege of seeing him was given to Mary of Magdala, as she was alone again in the sepulcher (John, 20: 1-18), and to her alone Jesus revealed that he was resurrected, only to her did he confer the missionary task to let all know: “I ascend to my Father and your Father, my God and your God.” And, a little before, it was Mary of Magdala to hear first the call of the resurrected Lord: – Mary!! – And she, turning around, answered in Hebrew: – Rabbuni! – that is: – Master!”. After the episode of the Samaritan, it is the moment of another woman: Mary of Magdala.
The Resurrection is one of the greatest among the Mysteries of the initiatic way, and this Mystery was unveiled to the Woman Mary of Magdala.
We find important information on the feminine Initiation and on her mission of Adept also in other traditions. In India, for example, not only can the woman be an Initiate, but she can also confer the initiatic grades to other people, men and women. So, the initiator of the great Shri Ramakrishna, Master of Swami Vivekananda, was the Bhairavi Brahmani. Continue Reading
