THE HOUSE OF ETERNITY
Book I: Ruminations Upon Divinity
By Gabriel Baal ’Eyt
Légat Royale du Temple du Mont Carmel
The Teachings contained within this short Epistle are extremely ancient, predating the very beginnings of the four, verified, historical civilizations, i.e., Dynastic Egypt, Dynastic Sumer, Indus River, and the Pontine Steppes (Vedas). As you read and contemplate each Lesson, you will discover their prescient nature, as similar propositions are commonly found within the various esoteric schools which have come and gone over the past 5000 years.
In presenting such Teachings, I have taken the liberty of removing the original names, as none will recognized or understood, and substituting the names of divine beings, seers, teachers, and yogis found in scriptures still in existence.
You will discover that the First Teachings were pragmatic and designed so to provide the quickest paths to essence, immortality, enlightenment, and liberation from the confines of time, space, and energy.
The First Ones taught,
The Liberation of self,
Requires the killing of self,
A murder accomplished in Lovingkindness done.
For with the killing of self,
One Awakens into the Timeless-Spaceless Infinitude.
The Unborn and Unfathomable which:
Is both Existence and Nonexistence,
Is neither Existence nor Nonexistence,
Is manifest and unmanifest,
Is neither manifest nor unmanifest,
Is both Possibility and Impossibility,
Is neither Possibility nor Impossibility,
Is both Point and Infinitude,
Is neither Point nor Infinitude.
Is both Individual and Collective,
Is neither Individual nor Collective.
Is both Known and Unknown,
Is neither Known nor Unknown.
The First Ones said, “When a student is no longer confused by the Lesson above, he or she has attained Enlightenment and is consciously present in the Three Worlds, the lower corporeal, the middle Oneiroin, and upper the Empyreal-Noumenal. The Work is Completed and the Enlightened One may exit from Manifest Universality into the Unborn or chose to remain, as God’s Friend, φίλος του Θεού. Terms used in the later esoteric schools are many, e.g., Paraclete, Παρακλέτα, Bodhisattva, Avatar, Fisherman, Ψαράς, and Son of God.
The evolutionary flaws of civilized mankind has brought the corporeal and Oneiroin Worlds into a very dark and evil time of crisis. Man is well one his way toward transformation into a new, mechanical form of socialized insect–Homo insectus. A form of life centered around mechanicalness, materialism, selfishness, and group-think. A life without freedom of choice and endless servitude to Ahriman and Mammon.
The First Ones continue to do what they can to bring mankind back to a place of stability where spiritual progress remains possible for those who desire such. Contrary to popularized, metaphysical schools, schools which attempt to distribute Divine Knowledge and Beingness amongst all human-level creatures, attaining to the Unborn is not a gift given to all. Only those with proper genetic propensities, suitable developmental upbringing, a compelling environment, and plain luck will even try.
These are the ones that the First Ones are able to help.
At first this may seem unfair and unjust, but it is not. Hardly anyone wants to sacrifice his or her selfish desires, kama so to have time to apply the super-effort required to earn reincarnation. A wise Teacher of your time said, “Happy is the Man who has completed his Soul, unconcerned is the insect man, but in true misery is the man working on making his Soul.”
Another modern wit noted, “Mankind is like a large box of laundry detergent. For within the box are a few grains of soap and the remainder is inert filler to trick the masses.”
Regardless, the First Ones asked me to tell you of the Original Metaphysics in the hope that enough will listen so to strengthen the Holy Egregore so to correct your social predicament, most dire. Personally, I have my doubts, but conscious action is what must be done without demanding the fruits which may be.
Herein, I give the instructions I gave to the son and daughter of my heart and loins when they were young–in a time before this Universe was.
