Today’s Prayer to Passage continues within the ancient scriptures of the “Nag Hamadi”. This month’s spiritual devotion to these texts will be taking place between June 1 – June 30, 2017.
Today I pray, “Dear God, This week is a bit of a rebirth and a re-filtering. I am identifying with the aspect of myself that has confidence. I am catalyzed within this energy. And I feel fulfillment waning. Thank you for this pull of watery energy. The emotional states are human. And as I am so very, very human, I embrace all of this as it flows. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“Secondary Structures of the Divine Mind
The Father looked into Barbelo
[into the pure light surrounding the Invisible Spirit]
Barbelo conceived and bore a spark of light
Who had blessedness similar to, but not equal to, her blessedness,
Who was the only child of that mother–father
The only offspring,
The only begotten child of the pure light, the Father.
The Invisible Virgin Spirit celebrated the light that had been produced
Coming forth from the first power who is
The Spirit anointed him with Goodness, making him perfect
[he lacked no goodness whatsoever,
for he was anointed with the Invisible Spirit’s Goodness]
He stood in the Spirit’s presence and it was poured upon him.
Having received this anointing from the Spirit he immediately glorified Him
And he glorified the perfect Providence.
Because of Her he had come into being.
He asked for Mind (nous) to be a companion to him.
The Spirit consented
When the Invisible Spirit consented
Mind came into being.
It stood by the Anointed
and glorified the Spirit and Barbelo
[These beings came into existence through silence and thought.]
He wished to act through the Word of the Invisible Spirit.
Whose Will became an action and appeared with Mind
Glorifying the Light.
And then Word followed Will into being.
[The Christ, the divine autogenes,
created everything through the Word.]
Everlasting Life and Will,
Mind, and Foreknowledge
They glorified the Invisible Spirit and Barbelo.
Because of Her they had come into being.”
