“Behold, I am Sodis Sophia, being myself the first of seven emanations which did
rise up from living streams of light and glory, reflecting out of eternal depths
the mystery and the wonder; revealing in fullness the richest of many pearls, even
Eroel, the pearl beyond price or measure. [vs. 2]
Look you then and clearly see, for even now is there come again the Teacher of Righteousness,
and whosoever will believe in him to follow after, even they shall become as a mystery
and a wonder; being themselves lifted up unto God, to possess for themselves even
their own Eroel, the pearl beyond price or measure.” [vs. 35]
Summary: The term “Eroel” refers to gnosis. More specifically, Eroel is the wisdom
of God and the eternal that is found both beyond and within. Thus, Eroel represents
both the sacred knowledge (Wisdom) of God as contained in the Song of God, as well
as the living pearl of gnosis and mystery that resides in the children of God.
There is inside of you, something wondrous, eternal and divine. No church can give
it to you, no man can take it away. This sacred pearl is yours by right of birth,
and in finding it, you will find your Self — you will find God.
Hear now and ponder deeply, for the kingdom of Heaven is like unto a treasure hidden
in a field, for which a man, when he finds it, leaps for joy; and selling all which
he has to purchase the field, takes the treasure unto himself.
Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant seeking goodly pearls, and finding
one of great price, he went and sold all which he had, and bought it.
You are the treasure hid in the earth, you are the pearl beyond price or measure,
for I tell you truly, that the kingdom of Heaven is within you and you are unable
to perceive it.
