(Sanskrit) "Creation by will." Comprised of kriya, "activity," and shakti, "intelligent energy," specifically related to the Divine Mother (Binah: intelligence). The resulting term Kriyashakti implies how will / consciousness creates by directing energy.

"Manifesting Himself by way of reflection in the Kriyâ-sakti and Jnâna-sakti, in the two sides of Antah-karana which are like unto the dull and the clear,—the back and the front—sides of a mirror, the Lord is spoken of as the doer and the knower." —Dakshinamurti Stotra

"The mysterious power of thought which enables it to produce external, perceptible, phenomenal results by its own inherent energy. The ancients held that any idea will manifest itself externally if one's attention is deeply concentrated upon it. Similarly an intense volition will be followed by the desired result." —HP Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine

"Gnostics create with the power of Kriyashakti: willpower and Yoga." - Samael Aun Weor, The Mystery of the Golden Blossom


"...the Kingdom of Heaven can only be taken by energy."
