Ancient wisdom states that darkness is in itself Father-Mother, and light is its child.

It is evident that the uncreated light has an unknowable origin, which is absolutely unknowable to us…

In no way do we exaggerate if we emphasise the idea that the origin of the uncreated light is darkness.

The cosmos emerges from the chaos, and light sprouts from darkness. Let us profoundly pray..!

Let us now talk about the borrowed, secondary, cosmic light.It is obvious that whatever its origin might be, and whatever its beauty might be, it has in its depth a temporary “mayic” character…

Then, the profound, ineffable darkness constitutes the eternal womb, in which the origins of light appear and disappear...

It is unquestionable that in this, our afflicted world of samsara, nothing is added to the darkness in order to convert it into light.

It is clear that in this valley of bitterness, nothing is added to light in order to transform it into darkness.

The logic of thought, or better if we say the Tertium Organum, invites us to think that light and darkness are interchangeable.

Analyzing this from a rigorously scientific point of view, we arrive at the conclusion that light is only a mode of darkness, and vice versa.

Light and darkness are two phenomena of the same noumenon, which is unknowable, profound, and inconceivable to the reasoning…

The fact of perceiving more or less light that shines within the darkness is a matter that depends on our power of spiritual vision…

A great being stated, “What is light for us is darkness for certain insects, and the spiritual eye sees illumination where the normal eye can only see obscurity...”

After the Mahamanvantara, the universe immersed into a Pralaya, dissolved within its primordial element, necessarily reposed within the profound darkness of the infinite space…

It is urgent to deeply comprehend the profound mystery of the chaotic darkness.

It is written with characters of unmistakable fire in the book of the great life that at the end of the Mahamanvantara (Cosmic Day), Osiris (the Father), Isis (the Divine Mother Kundalini), and Horus (the Divine Spirit), are integrated, mixed, and fused like three fires, in order to make one single flame…

It is obvious and any Mahatma knows that during the Mahapralaya (Cosmic Night) the whole dissolved universe lies within the unique, eternal, and primary cause, in order to be reborn again in the following dawning of the new great Cosmic Day, as is periodically done by Karana, the eternal cause.

Let us search for Osiris, Isis, and Horus within ourselves, within the unknowable profundities of our own Being.

It is obvious that Osiris, Isis, and Horus constitute in themselves the Monad, the Duad, and the Triad of our Innermost Being…

Did you ever hear about Brahma? He is in Himself Father-Mother-Son (Osiris, Isis, Horus)...

In each new cosmic dawning, the universe resurrects, like the Phoenix bird from within its own ashes…

In the dawning of each Mahamanvantara, the Monad unfolds again into the Duad and into the Triad…

At the daybreak of the new Cosmic Day, after the profound Night, the Son, the Triad, Horus (the divine Spirit within each one of us), emanates the Essence, His mystic principles, from Himself into the Wheel of Samsara, with the purpose of acquiring a Diamond Soul…

Ah! How great the joy of Horus is when acquiring a Diamond Soul! Then, He is absorbed within His Divine Mother, and She is also fused with the Father, who together form a unique Diamond Flame, a God of resplendent, interior beauty…
