Eternal

 

Occurrences:  11

First Reference:  Pearl 8:4

 

Thus, free from desire, you see the Eternal, transcending space and time;

To stand yourself revealed in God, consumed in silent knowing.

 

 

See:  Areta, Fullness (the), Mystery, The One, Way (the)

 

Summary:  A term used prominently in the Book of Pearls, the “Eternal” (also “eternal”) may represent the greater Light, or the Fullness, or perhaps a transcendent totality or completeness that encompasses all lesser realities. It represents the natural order or ineffable essence underlying all of creation. The Book of Pearls contrasts the Eternal with the Shadow, stating: “...the Eternal and the Shadow are likewise born together, reflecting in each the likeness of the other, revealing the heart of God” (Pearl 8:6).

 

The Eternal is also likened to the feminine Universal Consciousness, also known as Areta (Pearl 10, 15).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

The truth which can be spoken Is not Eternal Truth.

The name revealed and made most common is not the Eternal Name.

And mysteries spoken and passed about, are not Eternal Mystery....

 

Thus, free from desire, you see the Eternal, transcending space and time;

To stand yourself revealed in God, consumed in silent knowing.

 

But caught in the grip of base desires you see but shadows only,

Ever seeking with grasping hands to fill the void within.

 

Yet the Eternal and the Shadow are likewise born together,

Reflecting in each the likeness of the other,

Revealing the heart of God.

 ~ Pearl 8:1, 4-6
