Faith and Knowledge
Is there anything in this world perceived as pure or impure by the individual that cannot allow man to cleave to the Creator? Is there any event revealed or concealed to the individual which is not an opportunity the draw near to the creator?
If man walks only with the knowledge of the Creator, and the knowledge of the Creators intent is completely revealed to the person in all circumstances then how can he cleave to the Creator through Faith above reason?
If man walks only in blind faith and has no knowledge of the workings of the Upper One and his relationship with the Upper Governance, then how can he achieve any adhesion to the Creator? It is like an orphaned child who has never meet his parents, what can he know of his parents thoughts, desires and intentions?
It is for this reason that the Creator must reveal a portion of his knowledge and conceal the other. So that from the portion that is concealed from the person he can draw closer to the Creator through Faith above reason. By faith above reason it is meant that within the persons reason he cannot always understand where the Creator is leading him, yet follows with the knowledge that the Creator wants only the best for his soul.
The portion that is revealed to the person is achieved through the actual entry of the Light into the vessel which is an actual sensation of the Creator. The proportion of Light entering the soul is proportional to the amount of knowledge gained about the Creator (revelation), which is called the Light of Wisdom. It is called the Light of Wisdom because this is the quality of the illumination within the person.
So the person should strive to remain within the middle line, between knowledge of the Creator (Wisdom) and Faith ( Creators benevolence). This balance allows a person to maintain the bond within any situation. When the person can justify the Creators actions in this world, then the individual is in a state of Righteousness and the Light of Wisdom shines upon them. When the Light of Wisdom is concealed from the person and they lack the understanding of how the Creators action in this world is benevolent, then the person can maintain his Righteousness by seeing that it only appears malevolent because it is Above his reason. The person maintains his bond with the Creator because he realizes that the Creator has concealed a portion of the Light of Wisdom from him, so that he can draw near the Creator through Faith alone. Then the individual shines with Grace and Mercy as the sesation of Light from Above descends upon him.
I feel it important to mention that the Light does not change in quality. However as different amounts of Light fill certain areas of the vessel (soul) it gives us, within our sensations different flavors.
So depending on the ratio of light, we call the Light by different names, by how it feels within us.
So we call the Light, Truth, Wisdom, Grace, Mercy, Judgement, and much more however the light does not really change, it is us that are sensing it differently depending on the state of our vessel.
THE LIGHT (CREATOR) IS ONE
