Knowledge of Our True Essence

“In Hebrew da'at means 'knowledge,' but it also means 'union,' as in "Adam knew Eve." On the Tree of Life in the Kabbalah, Da'at indicates knowledge of God, but understanding that Da'at means union, Da'at implies union with God, knowledge of God through intimate and direct experience of God. It is this that knowers of God (gnostics) seek - conscious union with God, the experience Christ or God Consciousness.
In that our divine spark is inseparable from God, the True Light, this is not as removed from us as we might think; in our inmost being we abide in an innate unity with God, the Holy One, we just need to recognize and realize our true essence and nature, and learn to abide in the awareness of oneness with the Universe and God, the Infinite and Eternal.” ………..Tau Malachi
“From this Atman is Akasa (ether) born; from Akasa, air; from air, fire; from fire, water; from water, earth; from earth, the herbs, plants and vegetables; from herbs, etc., food; from food, man. Thus man is made of the essence of food. The physical embodiment has its parts, such as the head, the right and left parts, the trunk, the support, etc.
Brahman is your own very Self or Soul. It cannot be an object of knowledge. It is always the witnessing Subject.” ……………Taittiriya Upanishad Verses 22-23
Tau Malachi is a contemporary Gnostic teacher and his interpretation of the ultimate union of the self and the Divine as one consciousness is the reflection of the ancient wisdom of the Upanishad. In this Vedic text we have the detail on the progressive emanation of the physical reality of the self from the unmanifest Atman.
When I talk about the deep wisdom of the East, many friends ask me how without a scientific methodology of sensory observation and repeated confirmation a few individuals were given the power to have this advance knowledge.
We thoroughly underestimate the power of intuition, This intuition is in the domain of the heart and not in the power of our brain. When we study the energy flow in the human being the heart chakra or Anahata chakra is the merging point of the planetary or material consciousness, in which we are rooted, and the cosmic consciousness which is all pervading substratum from which all manifestations in objective reality happen. This is referred to as the third eye or an eye in the rear of our head as explained by J. Krishnamurthy in one of his talks. He says:
“Early in the morning when the sun was not yet up and the dew on the grass, still in bed, lying quietly, without any thought or movement, there was a seeing, not the superficial seeing with the eyes but seeing through the eyes from behind the head.
The eyes and from behind the head were only the instrument through which the immeasurable past was seeing into the immeasurable space that had no time.” ............J. Krishnamurti.
In the cosmic union there is no space and time and the subject / object duality vanishes.
This is brought out in the Genesis mythology creation story, Adam is the earthly manifestation or creation of the pure essence of Adam Kadmon. In Lurianic Kabbalah, the description of Adam Kadmon is anthropomorphic. Nonetheless, Adam Kadmon is divine light without vessels, i.e., pure potential. Eve is the vessel or the feminine aspect and which becomes the instrument of further manifestation which descends into corruption through consuming the fruit which is a knowledge of duality of good and evil.
But every human being is invested with this pure potentiality and as the Bible in the Book of Revelation reveals the mythological reference to restoration to the state of pure potentiality in the following verses:
“A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth…..” …………Revelation chapter 12: 1-2
“………..There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.” …………Revelation chapter 22: 5
These two verses refer to the appearance of the second Eve who will deliver the second Adam who is Christ, the pure potentiality in the manifest form. This process of individual personal redemption into our original state of pure potentiality is the entire message of the coming of Christ and his second coming as revealed in the Gospels.
Let this knowledge empower us to seek deeper wisdom that is ever resident in our inner being.
Love to you all.

  1. I liked the quotation from Upanishad where Man is depicted as the essence of all the elements. The ideal situation is one when he goes back to the original element that is Bramam or true consciousness. a good blog
