From the joining of male and female forces (which are positive and negative) the neutral force of creation is born as the light of the first day, and the spiritual aspect of the sun known as the Son of God or Christ.
The Father is the unseen spirit in the heavens, the mother is the earth and the body, while the son is the light that makes all things visible and alive.
Just as a child is born from the union of its mother and father, sharing half the chromosomes of each, so too is the spiritual son the child the spiritual mother and father.
In creation, that which is born of the union of male and female forces at the dawn of creation, is the first light, which is fire.
Fire is the release of an objects innate fiery energy, it is fire that gives life and light.
Life is multidimensional and just as there is fire in the world, so too there is fire in the dimensions beyond this. The more spiritual the dimension is, the more it becomes divine fire.
“It is I who am the light which is above them all. It is I who am the all. From me did the all come forth, and unto me did the all extend. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.”
~ Jesus in The Gospel of Thomas from the Nag Hammadi Library, translated by Thomas O. Lambdin
The laws that govern the cosmos also govern that which is within us and that which we are. Within our inner structure, the fire within us creates from male and female, to give birth to the spiritual son, the son of the inner being.
The spiritual son enters into the darkness within us, bringing light and destroying our inner darkness.
When light enters darkness, the darkness is no more.
The Cosmic Son, the Christ, is love; the opposite of love is hatred. Christ is light; the opposite of light is darkness.
Love is opposed by hatred, as light is opposed by darkness.
The Christ brings love to the world, and hatred rises to meet him. The Christ brings light to the world, and the darkness rises to meet him.
The love of the Christ exposes the hatred in the world, as the love of the Christ exposes hatred in a person.
The light of the Christ illuminates the darkness and exposes it, down to its very root. When light fills darkness, the darkness is no more.
Darkness fights the light for its very existence, as light shines to the detriment of darkness.
When the Christ mercifully comes to an individual, he brings his message to the world.
By his message, the forces that hate the light come to oppose him. By opposing him they are revealed, their nature is seen and what was hidden is exposed.
In this way the Christ roots out the darkness of the world, the darkness that is in humanity, and exposes it for the benefit of humanity.
Those opposing the spiritual are revealed for what they are. And in the Christ all that is lukewarm is discarded.
In the struggle for light, the opposition of the darkness becomes opportunity for the wise.
The light creates form from the struggle with darkness, and the form that exists in the world becomes a beacon of light for the world.
The Christ gives light to the individual who is prepared to receive him.
The darkness of the human egos within is the obstacle to the Christ within, and they must be overcome.
With his help the repentant can be saved.
The Son Christ is the light of the world, and when he shines, he is the hope of the world.
