Minimalism (Doctrine of)

 

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  5th Endowment 14:49-51

 

 

See:  unrighteous dominion

 

Summary:  The Doctrine of Minimalism refers to the principle or philosophy held by the Celestial citizens which asserts that the smallest of means, or the smallest of measures, should be taken in the exertion of the collective or individual will. The principle is held in order to avoid the sin of forcing one’s will upon another, which wrongful behavior is referred to as unrighteous dominion.

 

In speaking to The One and Areta, Azraella mentions how he plans to abide by the ‘Doctrine of Minimalism’ in order to avoid “the hurt of unrighteous dominion” even while opposing Yaldabaoth, the Lord of Chaos (5:14:38-52).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

This then have I weighed in the hand and in my soul have well determined, for in watching well the Gods of Heaven have I observed their own behavior; how that in the working of their will they use most subtly the smallest of means, avoiding through the smallest of measures the hurt of unrighteous dominion.

Thus in the Doctrine of Minimalism shall I use the smallest of measure to shape and turn the greatest events, avoiding through the slightest and most subtle of means the heavy weight of unrighteous dominion; for there is nothing made impossible to those who are wise and patient, being in themselves most relentless and indomitable also.

For those who are wise do know most certain, that in using that which appears as something small and insignificant today, if given time, will on the morrow prove the hinge upon which greater events are turned; to cast the shadows into light, changing defeat into victory.

5th Endowment 14:49-51
