Path of Initiation 06 Nychtemeron_ The Hours of Apollonius Part 2.mp3

Continues the deep examination of the Nychtemeron, including the bodies of the soul as presented in the writings of the New Testament, the forces of the sun and moon (solar and lunar), and much more.

"All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men (earth), another flesh of beasts (fire), another of fishes (water), and another of birds (air).

There are also celestial bodies (Divine or Causal bodies), and bodies terrestrial (either from the earth, water, fire and air): but the glory of the celestial (ἐπουράνιος espuranios – Divine or Causal bodies) is one, and the glory of the terrestrial (either from the earth, water, fire and air) is another. 

There is one glory of the sun (in Tiphereth) and another glory of the moon (in Malkuth), and another glory of the stars (in Hod): for one star (Aster, Astral) differeth from another star in glory (δόξα doxa – insight, Objective Reasoning). So also is the (levels of) resurrection of the dead (in any level). 

It is sown in corruption (one was engendered through fornication); it is raised in incorruption (one is self-generated through chastity): It is sown in dishonour (one is engendered through desire); it is raised in glory (one is self-generated in virtues): it is sown in weakness (one is engendered by the devil); it is raised in power (one is self-generated by the Holy Spirit):

It is sown a natural body (sōma psychikon – Emotional or Astral Solar Body); it is raised a spiritual body (sōma pneumatikon – Mental Solar Body). There is a natural body (σῶμα ψυχικόν), and there is a spiritual body (σῶμα πνευματικόν).

And so it is also written, The first man Adam was made a living soul (psychē, meaning, it was made in the ethereal, astral and mental worlds: Vital, Astral and Mental); the last Adam was made a quickening spirit (Pneuma – Causal or Superior Manas).

Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural (psychikon); and afterward that which is spiritual (pneumatikon).

The first man (vital, astral and mental) is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven (κύριος ἐξ οὐρανοῦ - Kirie Uranon).

As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy (either: physical, vital, astral or mental): and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly (Uranon or Divine, Causal).

And as we have borne the image of the (vital, astral and mental) earthy (men), we shall also bear the image of the (Causal or Divine) heavenly (Men - Tiphereth).

Now this I say, brethren, that (physical) flesh and (physical) blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption (bodies made through fornication) inherit incorruption (heaven).

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump (the seventh): for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead (psychological particles of God) shall be raised incorruptible....

"Let us think for a moment of the humanoid multitudes that populate the face of the earth. They suffer the unspeakable. They are victims of their own errors. If they did not have ego they would not have those errors, nor would they suffer the consequences of such errors. The unique thing required in order to have the right to true happiness is, before all, to not have this ego. Certainly, when psychic aggregates, the inhuman elements that make us so horrible and evil, do not exist within us, then the payment of Karma is non-existent. Thus, the result is happiness."
