11. Swami Vivekananda has said that tempting gods appear when the initiate tries to enter into the Absolute, they offer to make him a king of certain zones of the universe, so that he does not become liberated.

43. The void, the darkness, and the Not-Me are the unity of the Absolute.
44. That void is plentitude, those darknesses are uncreated light, and that Not-Me of philosophy is the BEING, the real me; it is the Innermost already liberated.
45. When the utmost hour of the first instant sounded, the resplendent children of the dawn of the Mahamanvantara emerged from the bosom of the Absolute, since they had not yet awakened absolute consciousness, and the Absolute without absolute consciousness is not absolute happiness.
46. Paranishpanna (absolute bliss) without Paramartha (awakened consciousness) is not bliss.
47. If, after disincarnating, a common and ordinary soul were deposited in the Absolute, that soul, facing the profound darkness of the Not-Being, would be filled with terror. Thus, facing that horrible void of the Not-Me, he would beg us to be removed from the Absolute and brought back into the world.

"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
"For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
"And again, when he bringeth in the first begotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
"But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
"But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" – Hebrews 1
