From the Secret Doctrine: Cosmogenesis - The Seven Creations, Part 2 of 2

The Fourth Creation “The Mukhya or Primary, as it begins the series of four. “The Mukhya is the ‘creation,’ or rather organic evolution, of the vegetable kingdom. In this Secondary Period, the three degrees of the elemental or rudimental kingdoms are evolved in this World, corresponding, inversely in order, to the three Prâkritic Creations, during the Primary Period of Brahma’s activity.

From the Secret Doctrine: Cosmogenesis - The Seven Creations, Part 1 of 2

The 19th-century Russian esotericist Helena Petrovna von Hahn, more popularly known as Madame Blavatsky or H.P.B., came from a noble family in Ukraine. As a child, Madame Blavatsky would often have visions and displayed clairvoyance as well as other metaphysical phenomena. Years later, she traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East studying under various teachers and Sufi saints. While in London, United Kingdom, she met one special teacher, an Indian yogi named Master Morya, who later directed her to go to New York in the United States. Once there, she founded the Theosophical Society in 1875 with other like-minded individuals. Madame Blavatsky wrote several important books on Theosophy, including “Isis Unveiled,” “The Secret Doctrine,” “The Key to Theosophy,” and “The Voice of the Silence.” “The Secret Doctrine” explains the origin and evolution of the universe and of humanity through an account of "Root Races" dating back millions of years. Although the writer of “The Secret Doctrine,” Madame Blavatsky often expressed that she was only the compiler of ancient wisdom that was passed on to her. The true authors of the work were her teachers, the Mahatmas, or Great Souls, who were the guardians of the Secret Wisdom of the ages. We will now share with you “From the Secret Doctrine: Cosmogenesis – The Seven Creations.”“The Seven Creations are found in almost every Purana. They are all preceded by what Wilson translates as the ‘Indiscrete Principle,’ Absolute Spirit, independent of any relation with objects of sense. They are: (1) Mahattattva, the Universal Soul, Infinite Intellect, or Divine Mind; (2) Tanmâtras, Bhûta or Bhûtasarga, Elemental Creation the first differentiation of Universal Indiscrete Substance; (3) Indriya or Aindriyaka, Organic Evolution. ‘These three were the Prâkrita Creations, the developments of indiscrete nature, preceded by the Indiscrete Principle’; (4) Mukhya, ‘the Fundamental Creation (of perceptible things) was that of inanimate bodies’; (5) Tairyagyonya or Tiryaksrotas, was that of animals; (6) Ûrdhvasrotas, or that of divinities; (7) Arvâksrotas, was that of man. This is the order given in the exoteric texts. According to esoteric teaching, there are seven Primary, and seven Secondary ‘Creations’; the former being the Forces self-evolving from the one causeless Force; the latter showing the manifested Universe emanating from the already differentiated divine Elements.”

God is Love: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

00:15:40

God is Love: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the enlightening wisdom of the Reverend Thomas Merton as expressed in his book, “Thoughts in Solitude.” “There is no true spiritual life outside the Love of Christ. We have a spiritual life only because we are loved by Him. The spiritual life consists in receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit and His Charity, because the Sacred Heart of Jesus has willed, in His Love, that we should live by His Spirit — the same Spirit Which proceeds from the Word and from the Father, and Who is Jesus’ Love for the Father. If we know how great is the Love of Jesus for us, we will never be afraid to go to Him in all our poverty, all our weakness, all our spiritual wretchedness and infirmity.” “All sin is a punishment for the primal sin of not knowing God. That is to say all sin is a punishment for ingratitude.”“He is Love. Deus Caritas est (God is Love). Our knowledge of God is perfected by gratitude: we are thankful and rejoice in the experience of the truth that He is Love. The Eucharist — the Sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving — is a burning hearth of the knowledge of God, for in the Sacrifice, Jesus, giving thanks to the Father, offers and immolates Himself entirely for His Father’s Glory and to save us from our sins. If we do not ‘know’ Him in His sacrifice, how can it avail for us? ‘The knowledge of God is more than holocausts’ (Hosea 6:6). We do not know Him unless we are grateful, and praise the Father with Him.”“There is no neutrality between gratitude and ingratitude. Those who are not grateful, soon begin to complain of everything. Those who do not love, hate. In the spiritual life, there is no such thing as an indifference to love or hate.” “To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us — and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His Love, every moment of existence is a Grace, for it brings with it immense Graces from Him. Gratitude therefore, takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the Goodness of God. For the grateful man knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.”

The Reverend Thomas Merton, an important Catholic mystic and spiritual thinker, was born in 1915, to a New Zealand father and an American mother. The many life situations he encountered in his youth led him to explore religion and spirituality and eventually to devote his life to God by becoming a monk, and later a deacon, at the Abbey of Gethsemani, a part of the Order of Trappists, in Kentucky,

00:10:02

Lord Jesus Christ (vegetarian) Our Savior – From the Gospel of Luke (vegetarian) in the Holy Bible: Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with the reading from Chapter 7 in the Gospel of Luke of the Holy Bible. In these verses, we will learn about some of the miracles Lord Jesus performed while on His mission to spread the word of God.Jesus and John the Baptist “When the men came to Jesus, they said, ‘John the Baptist sent us to You to ask, “Are You the One Who is to come, or should we expect someone else?”’ At that very time, Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. So, He replied to the messengers, ‘Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.’” “After John’s messengers left, Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John: ‘What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed swayed by the wind? If not, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fine clothes? No, those who wear expensive clothes and indulge in luxury are in palaces. But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. This is the One about Whom it is written: “I will send My Messenger ahead of You, who will prepare Your way before You.” I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet the One Who is least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he.’”Jesus Anointed by a Sinful Woman “Then He turned toward the woman and said to Simon, ‘Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven - as her great love has shown. But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little.’ Then Jesus said to her, ‘Your sins are forgiven.’ The other guests began to say among themselves, ‘Who is this Who even forgives sins?’ Jesus said to the woman, ‘Your faith has saved you; go in peace.’”

Lord Jesus Christ (vegetarian) Our Savior – From the Gospel of Luke (vegetarian) in the Holy Bible: Part 1 of 2

Jesus Christ: Prophet, Son of God, the Prince of Peace, Savior and friend; He is known by many names. The birth in Bethlehem of this beloved spiritual Master marks the beginning of the Western calendar; so important was His influence on humanity. Lord Jesus taught God’s love and forgiveness to all people with open hearts. He is especially loved and remembered because of His sacrifice to cleanse the sins of His disciples and of the world. Three days after His crucifixion, He arose, as witnessed by some of His disciples. Today, we will open the Gospel of Luke.Love for Enemies “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Judging Others “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” A Tree and Its Fruit “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” The Wise and Foolish Builders “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice, is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

“Calmness and Silence” and Other Selections from “Así Hablaba Quetzalcóatl (Thus Spoke Quetzalcóatl),” Part 2 of 2

“Calmness and Silence” and Other Selections from “Así Hablaba Quetzalcóatl (Thus Spoke Quetzalcóatl),” Part 2 of 2

“Calmness and Silence ‘Those who search for Silence in calmness will never find it naked. To lay it uncovered you have to search for it among turbulence. Tell me: Of what good is it for a heart to have calmness in solitude? Is it not like the calmness a stagnant lake has in a valley? Yet, how great is a heart when among difficulties and problems it keeps calm and dresses with Silence! It is like the torrent that slides down, serene by the side of the mountain. Some go to places where the most that could bother them would be the chirping of a little bird, or the sound that the wind draws out from the leaves of the trees. And they think: I am tranquil and calm in these places, I have achieved calmness, and Silence is the friend of my heart. But when you get in touch with uproar, your pulses flutter and your hearts get stirred up, and your thoughts collide with violence on your foreheads. And I would ask you: Where have you kept calmness? What dwelling did you prepare for it in your chests that it went away so soon? Know that he who seeks for inner Silence should find it among noises and voices and screams, and taking it should settle with it in your heart, and when you listen to it, you will not hear towards the outside, but towards the inside. And indeed I tell you that not even a hundred storms, nor the explosion of a thousand volcanoes, could ever take you apart from it. To seek them, for inner calmness, do not go to where everything is calm, but to where there is no peace, and be you the peace. That way, in giving it you will find it, and you will have it in the same way that you see how others need you to calm down.’” “An Example in Order to Flourish ‘Men and Women: You will never learn. Do you happen to think you will praise Heaven taking something that He put on Earth for a purpose? Do you really think that by destroying the lives of these beings you flatter Our Creator? These creatures were not put on Earth to be taken and abused for being inferior, just as neither were the animals, nor the birds, nor the least of your brothers among men. If you really need plants to feed yourselves, take only that which you can eat, but do not get carried away by greed, for that unbalances the Earth. If you want to raise an altar to the Eternal, take Nature itself for an altar, and take care of it; because you will make your God rejoice more by leaving each flower and each animal and each brother of yours where they are, rather than by cutting their lives off. Can’t you understand you are taking death and leaving life behind? And may you be the flowers that embellish the temples, for it is true that a humble but filled with love surpasses the greatest palace filled with flowers. Leave then the appearances now, and do not deceive others by putting beautiful fronts outside your hearts.’” “Journey Companions ‘My journey companions here on Earth, Heaven fixed a long time ago. The only thing I am doing now is to reap what He sowed. How many lifetimes have you come to my side? And how many more will you stay with me? Know that Heaven never forsook you. Loneliness sprang from your isolation, but He never stayed apart from you. Do not be deluded by the appearances with which are dressed the things of this world, and know how to distinguish underneath them. Because He can be concealed to the eyes of the flesh, but not to the eyes of the Spirit. And your Master can be very close, without you recognizing him, the same way your path brothers are, and you do not recognize them. There is a saying in wise and faraway lands that goes: When the disciple is prepared, the Master appears. But I ask you: Could it be that the Master never abandoned us, and it was only our ignorance that kept Him concealed?’”

Selections from “The Life Divine” by Sri Aurobindo (vegetarian): The Human Aspiration, Part 2 of 2

00:10:37

Selections from “The Life Divine” by Sri Aurobindo (vegetarian): The Human Aspiration, Part 2 of 2

“We speak of the evolution of Life in Matter, the evolution of Mind in Matter; but evolution is a word which merely states the phenomenon without explaining it. For there seems to be no reason why Life should evolve out of material elements or Mind out of living form, unless we accept the Vedantic solution that Life is already involved in Matter and Mind in Life because in essence Matter is a form of veiled Life, Life a form of veiled Consciousness. And then there seems to be little objection to a farther step in the series and the admission that mental consciousness may itself be only a form and a veil of higher states which are beyond Mind. In that case, the unconquerable impulse of man towards God, Light, Bliss, Freedom, Immortality presents itself in its right place in the chain as simply the imperative impulse by which Nature is seeking to evolve beyond Mind, and appears to be as natural, true and just as the impulse towards Life which she has planted in certain forms of Matter or the impulse towards Mind which she has planted in certain forms of Life.” “The animal is a living laboratory in which Nature has, it is said, worked out man. Man himself may well be a thinking and living laboratory in whom and with whose conscious co-operation she wills to work out the superman, the god. Or shall we not say, rather, to manifest God? For if evolution is the progressive manifestation by Nature of that which slept or worked in her, involved, it is also the overt realization of that which she secretly is. We cannot, then, bid her pause at a given stage of her evolution, nor have we the right to condemn with the religionist as perverse and presumptuous or with the rationalist as a disease or hallucination any intention she may evince or effort she may make to go beyond. If it be true that Spirit is involved in Matter and apparent Nature is secret God, then the manifestation of the divine in himself and the realization of God within and without are the highest and most legitimate aim possible to man upon earth.”

Selections from “The Life Divine” by Sri Aurobindo (vegetarian): The Human Aspiration, Part 1 of 2

India - the home of many great spiritual Masters who have brought wisdom and truth to Earth, inspiring us to seek a higher purpose in life, thus uplifting humanity to a divine state of being. One such great figure is the spiritual Master, yogi, philosopher, poet and politician Sri Aurobindo, who graced our planet from 1872 to 1950. Through the inner knowledge revealed to Him during His spiritual practice, Sri Aurobindo began publishing writings full of wisdom.Today, we present to you Chapter 1 of “Book One – Omnipresent Reality and the Universe” in “The Life Divine.” “She follows to the goal of those that are passing on beyond, she is the first in the eternal succession of the dawns that are coming, — Usha widens, bringing out that which lives, awakening someone who was dead… What is her scope when she harmonizes with the dawns that shone out before and those that now must shine? She desires the ancient mornings and fulfils their light; projecting forwards her illumination she enters into communion with the rest that are to come.” “Threefold are those supreme births of this divine force that is in the world, they are true, they are desirable; he moves there wide-overt within the Infinite and shines pure, luminous and fulfilling… That which is immortal in mortals and possessed of the truth, is a god and established inwardly as an energy working out in our divine powers… Become high-uplifted, O Strength, pierce all veils, manifest in us the things of the Godhead.” “The earliest preoccupation of man in his awakened thoughts and, as it seems, his inevitable and ultimate preoccupation, — for it survives the longest periods of skepticism and returns after every banishment, — is also the highest which his thought can envisage. It manifests itself in the divination of Godhead, the impulse towards perfection, the search after pure Truth and unmixed Bliss, the sense of a secret immortality. The ancient dawns of human knowledge have left us their witness to this constant aspiration; today we see a humanity satiated but not satisfied by victorious analysis of the externalities of Nature preparing to return to its primeval longings. The earliest formula of Wisdom promises to be its last, — God, Light, Freedom, Immortality.”

Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): “The Promised Day Is Come,” Part 2 of 2

Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): “The Promised Day Is Come,” Part 2 of 2

“‘Bestir yourselves, O people,’ is, on the one hand, the ominous warning sounded by Bahá’u’lláh Himself, ‘in anticipation of the days of Divine Justice, for the promised hour is now come.’ ‘Abandon that which ye possess, and seize that which God, Who layeth low the necks of men, hath brought. Know ye of a certainty that if ye turn not back from that which ye have committed, chastisement will overtake you on every side, and ye shall behold things more grievous than that which ye beheld aforetime.’ And again: ‘We have fixed a time for you, O people! If ye fail, at the appointed hour, to turn towards God, He, verily, will lay hold on you.’ And again: ‘God assuredly dominates the lives of them that wronged Us, and is well aware of their doings. He will most certainly lay hold on them for their sins.’ And finally: ‘O ye peoples of the world! Know verily that an unforeseen calamity is following you and that grievous retribution awaiteth you. Think not the deeds ye have committed have been blotted from My sight. By My Beauty! All your doings hath My pen graven with open characters upon tablets of golden stone.’ ‘The whole Earth,’ Bahá’u’lláh, on the other hand, forecasting the bright future in store for a world now wrapt in darkness, emphatically asserts, ‘is now in a state of pregnancy. The day is approaching when it will have yielded its noblest fruits, when from it will have sprung forth the loftiest trees, the most enchanting blossoms, the most heavenly blessings.’ ‘The time is approaching when every created thing will have cast its burden. Glorified be God Who hath vouchsafed this grace that encompasses all things, whether seen or unseen!’ ‘These great oppressions,’ He, moreover, foreshadowing humanity’s Golden Age, has written, ‘are preparing it for the advent of the Most Great Justice.’ This Most Great Justice is indeed the Justice upon which the structure of the Most Great Peace can alone, and must eventually, rest, while the Most Great Peace will, in turn, usher in that Most Great, that World Civilization which shall remain forever associated with Him Who beareth the Most Great Name.” “‘We verily,’ He Himself has testified, ‘have not fallen short of Our duty to exhort men, and to deliver that whereunto I was bidden by God, the Almighty, the All-Praised. Had they hearkened unto Me, they would have beheld the earth another earth.’ And again: ‘Is there any excuse left for anyone in this Revelation? No, by God, the Lord of the Mighty Throne! My signs have encompassed the earth, and My power enveloped all mankind, and yet the people are wrapped in a strange sleep!’”

By the power of his loving-kindness and compassion (Metta-Karuna), Milarepa made them lie down, one on either side of Him, and then preached to them. Then came the fierce and proud huntsman, Chirawa Gwunbo Dorje, who was enraged by the sight of the Jetsun and shot an arrow at him, but missed. Milar

Selections from the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa (vegetarian) – Songs 2-4, 6, 14-15, 51-52, Part 1 of 2

One of the renowned Masters of this religion is Jetsun Milarepa, meaning Milarepa the Revered One. A former magician who became a yogi, poet, and hermit, this spiritual hero of Tibet lived from 1052 to 1135, and His story of personal redemption has inspired lives across many generations. Through songs called dohas, Jetsun Milarepa imparted Divine teachings on spiritual devotion and wisdom. Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken about the venerated Milarepa on several occasions, as during this lecture given in 1992 at the Hsihu Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. “Milarepa, His faith in seeking the Truth was very firm. He was terrified of hell and knew that His karma was unimaginable. So no matter how much His Master scolded Him, He endured it. His faith was from inside. He wasn't taught to do so. No one taught Him to do so and no one forced Him. From the hardships that He underwent, we can see why He was able to attain the Truth.” Today, we present to you an excerpt from the holy text of Tibetan Buddhism titled, “Sixty Songs of Milarepa (vegetarian).” “On His way to Shri Ri to meditate, Milarepa lodged at an inn where a merchant, Dhawa Norbu (the Moon jewel), was also staying with a great retinue. Milarepa begged alms from him, upon which the merchant remarked that it would be better for him to work to support himself. Milarepa pointed out that enjoying pleasures now is the source for more suffering in the future. Then He said: ‘Now listen to my song.’ ‘Castles and crowded cities are the places Where now you love to stay; But remember that they will fall to ruins After you have departed from this Earth! Pride and vain glory are the lure Which now you love to follow; But remember, when you are about to die, They offer you no shelter and no refuge! Kinsmen and relatives are the people now With whom you love to live; But remember that you must leave them all behind, When from this world you pass away! Servants, wealth and children Are things you love to hold; But remember, at the time of your death, Your empty hands can take nothing with you! Vigor and health Are dearest to you now; But remember, at the moment of your death, Your corpse will be bundled up and borne away! Now your organs are clear, Your flesh and blood are strong and vigorous; But remember, at the moment of your death, They will no longer be at your disposal! Sweet and delicious foods are things That now you love to eat; But remember, at the moment of your death, Your mouth will let the spittle flow! When of all this I think, I cannot help but seek the Buddha’s Teachings! The enjoyments and the pleasures of this world, For me, have no attraction. I, Milarepa, sing of the Eight Reminders, At the Guest House in Garakhache of Tsang. With these clear words I give this helpful warning; I urge you to observe and practise them!’”

Distributing God’s Wisdom: From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

00:13:53

Distributing God’s Wisdom: From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We now continue with chapters 40 to 48 in “The Book of the Secrets of Enoch,” depicting Enoch being sent by God back to Earth, in order to distribute his knowledge-rich handwritings through his children, teaching them of the immeasurable greatness of the one and only Father. “The Lord with His hands having created man, in the likeness of His own face, the Lord made Him small and great. Whoever reviles the Ruler’s face, and abhors the Lord’s face, has despised the Lord’s face, and he who vents anger on any man without injury, the Lord’s great anger will cut him down, he who spits on the face of man reproachfully, will be cut down at the Lord’s great judgment. Blessed is the man who does not direct his heart with malice against any man, and helps the injured and condemned, and raises the broken down, and shall do charity to the needy, because on the day of the great judgment, every weight, every measure and every makeweight (will be) as in the market, that is to say (they are) hung on scales and stand in the market, (and every one) shall learn his own measure, and according to his measure shall take his reward.”“The Lord has placed the foundations in the unknown, and has spread forth Heavens visible (physical) and invisible (spiritual); He fixed the Earth on the waters, and created countless creatures, and who has counted the water and the foundation of the unfixed, or the dust of the earth, or the sand of the sea, or the drops of the rain, or the morning dew, or the wind’s breathings? Who has filled earth and sea, and the indissoluble winter? I cut the stars out of fire, and decorated Heaven, and put it in their midst.”“From the invisible (spiritual) He made all things visible (physical), Himself being invisible (spiritual). Thus I make known to you, my children, and distribute the books to your children, into all your generations, and amongst the nations who shall have the sense to fear God, let them receive them, and may they come to love them more than any food or Earthly sweets, and read them and apply themselves to them. And those who understand not the Lord, who fear not God, who accept not, but reject, who do not receive the (books), a terrible judgment awaits these. Blessed is the man who shall bear their yoke and shall drag them along, for he shall be released on the day of the Great Judgment.”

Distributing God’s Wisdom: From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Distributing God’s Wisdom: From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, also known as the Second Book of Enoch, or Old Bulgarian Enoch, is an ancient religious text, which describes the intensity of the Antediluvian (pre-Flood) time period. Enoch was a venerated patriarch and great-grandfather of Noah. After his son, Methuselah, was born, Enoch began to “walk with God” – that is, he began to seek, to know, to serve, and to pray to God, and he continued this for the next 300 years! Throughout his life, he visited Heaven in his visions and dreams. At the age of 365, Enoch disappeared, “because God took him away” straight to Heaven, for he was pleasing to God. The Book of Enoch contains unique material on why the Great Flood was morally necessary, why some angels fell from Heaven, and prophetic revelations of the thousand-year reign of the Messiah. But the main message is one of hope, that God will be the guiding Light for those who are righteous. Today, as we go through chapters 31 to 39 from “The Book of the Secrets of Enoch,” we will read about God appointing Enoch to go down to Earth and share his handwritten books on everything he has witnessed and learned while on his journey in Heaven. “And now, Enoch, all that I have told you, all that you have understood, all that you have seen of Heavenly things, all that you have seen on Earth, and all that I have written in books by my great wisdom, all these things I have devised and created from the uppermost foundation to the lower and to the end, and there is no counsellor nor inheritor to my creations. I am self-eternal, not made with hands, and without change.” “They have rejected my commandments and my yoke, worthless seed has come up, not fearing God, and they would not bow down to me, but have begun to bow down to vain gods, and denied my unity, and have laden the whole Earth with untruths, offences, abominable lustfulness, namely one with another, and all manner of other unclean wickedness, which are disgusting to relate. And therefore, I will bring down a deluge upon the Earth and will destroy all men, and the whole Earth will crumble together into great darkness.”
