(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

"We must accept our burdens gracefully, for when the student takes the Path, he is often plunged into ranges of experience which other men escape, in order to teach him to have command of himself in his environment, and thus learn the reason why he has been placed there."
