(Greek πλήρωμα) “Fullness,” an ancient Gnostic term adopted to signify the divine world or Universal Soul. Space, developed and divided into a series of aeons. The abode of the invisible Gods. In correspondence to the Kabbalah, Pleroma refers to the World of Atziluth.

"For in him [Christ] dwelleth all the pleroma of the deity bodily." —Col 2:9

"...the Pleroma, the one embracing all within itself, an idea fittingly embodied in a name containing the sum of all its component powers." —The Gnostics and Their Remains, by Charles William King [1887]

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Tremendous is the effort and the vigilance that is needed from second to second, from moment to moment, in order to not fall into illusions. One minute of unawareness is enough for the mind to be already dreaming about something else, distracting it from the job or deed that we are living at the moment."
