The Being

13.- Could you tell me what is the Being?

A.- The Being is the Being, and the raison d’être of the Being is the very same Being; The Being is what is Divine, the immortal spark of every human being, without principle and without end, terribly divine.

The human beings don’t posses this divine spark within their bodies yet, but if we sanctify ourselves and eliminate the sinner “I”, the Mephistopheles, it’s clear that one day the Spark will be able to enter in our bodies. Now I invite you to comprehend what is the Being.

The innermost feeling of the person or the Being correlates this knowledge.

The raison d’être of the Being is the very same Being. Only the Being can know himself.

The Being, therefore, knows himself in Gnosis.

The Being — when he redeems and knows himself — is Auto-Gnosis. The latter, in and of itself, is Gnosis.

The Being’s self-knowledge is supra-rational dynamics; it relies on him and has nothing to do with the intellect.

The abyss that exists between the Being and the “I” is impassable. This is why the pneuma, the Spirit, recognises itself, and this recognition is an autonomous act for which the intellectual mammal’s subjective reasoning becomes inefficient, insufficient and terribly poor.

The urgent and undelayable work of the annihilation of the “I” precedes the acquisition of self-knowledge or Auto-Gnosis.

The ego or “I” is composed of additions and subtractions of subjective, inhuman and bestial elements that have a beginning and an end.

The Essence, the Consciousness, which is enclosed, bottled up, imprisoned painfully within the diverse elements that make up the myself, the ego, unfortunately acts by way of its own conditioning.

When the ‘I’ is dissolved, the Essence, the Consciousness, awakens, acquires illumination and frees itself. Then, as a consequence, self-knowledge or Self-Gnosis is acquired. Authentic revelation has irrefutable foundations in Self-Gnosis.
