So be you wise, do not forget, neither think you to dissemble, to think yourself
as someone wiser than the Mystery which came from God; for in this book where Heaven
waits is a wisdom far greater than yourself; a wisdom born and shaped in fire, a
wisdom worth the having, to create in you a living flame.
Summary: The proper term “Mystery” is used to describe several different figures
or features in scripture, including the book of scripture itself (W:29:33). The Supreme
Father of Heaven, known as The One, refers to himself, saying: “I am Mystery, deep
and hidden” (E:14:12-14; 6:1:2; 6:13:57). The Book of Pearls mentions “Eternal Mystery”
and the “mystery born of Mystery” (P:8:1,7). The feminine, primordial power and cosmic
consciousness referred to as Areta is described as being “the Mystery” that lay hidden
amidst the Eidos (3:1:24,28). Finally, this sixth and present dispensation is said
to be called by the Gods as the “Dispensation of Fullness, of Mystery, and of Exaltation”
Eternal Mind have I become, unmoved yet ever moving, constant and unchanging, even
the greatest of them all; and in all creation am I ever found, being in all, through
all, and before all.
Holding in my hand the power beyond all power, and the glory beyond all glory; for
I am Mystery, deep and hidden, revealing always the greater portion.
Endless Soul have I become, for the realm of Eidos have I placed as a footstool beneath
my feet, while the Areta I have set as a crown upon my head.
For I am the Mystery deeply hidden, revealing always the songs of the ineffable;
proving myself through kind devotion a good and holy consort; embracing to my soul
the hopes and dreams of my Beloved, to be for her the fulfillment and the joy; for
the Areta have I set as a crown upon my head, and a light within my heart.
6th Endowment 1:2 (also 6:13:57)
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.
[...] This is the mystery born of Mystery
Endless and filled with joy,
Thus did the Mystery move most subtly within the midst of the Eidos, being called
of herself Areta; and peering out into the Deep, she spoke to herself, saying: “Here
is matter unorganized, being empty of life, having neither light nor purpose.”
[...] Thus did Areta reason, and taking thought she cast herself into the cosmic
egg wherein she might dwell; yet was the Eidos unaware of either her presence or
her absence, being unable by any means to perceive the Mystery within the midst of
3rd Endowment 1:24, 28
For this dispensation do the very Gods call: the Dispensation of Fullness, of Mystery
and of Exaltation. For unto the children of God who are made to become as sojourners
upon this world of the First Power, unto these the faithful and believing would I
reveal a fullness of God and Heaven; that all those who should comport themselves
in godly fashion, even upon them shall descend a fullness of revelation and mystery
filled with wonder and exaltation.
