The Absolute is the Being of all Beings. The Absolute is that which Is, which always has Been, and which always will Be.
The Absolute is expressed as Absolute Abstract Movement and Repose. The Absolute is the cause of Spirit and of Matter, but It is neither Spirit nor Matter. The absolute is beyond the mind; the mind cannot understand It. Therefore, we have to intuitively understand Its nature.
The Absolute is beyond conditioned life. It is beyond that which is relative. It is the Real Being; It is the Non- Being because It does not keep any concordance with our concepts, but the Absolute is the ” Real Being.” This is why we do not intellectually comprehend It, because for us the Absolute is like Non- Being; nonetheless, It is the Real Being of the Being.
To Be is better than To Exist, and the reason for The Being to Be is to Be The Being Itself. Our legitimate existence is within the Absolute, which is a Non-Being, a Non-Existence for the human reasoning.
The absolute is not a God, neither a Divine nor human individual. It would be absurd to give form to That which has no form; it would be nonsense to try to anthropomorphize Space.
Indeed, the Absolute is the Unconditional and Eternal Abstract Space, far beyond Gods and human beings. The Absolute is the Uncreated Light which does not project a shadow in any place during the profound night of the Great Pralaya, (I will explain later what Pralaya means).
The Absolute is beyond Time, Number, Measurement, and Weight; beyond Casualty, Form, Fire, Light and Darkness. Nonetheless, the Absolute is the Uncreated Light.
The Absolute has Three Aspects
AIN is the same as SAT in Sanskrit, in other words, the Unmanifested Absolute.
AIN SOPH is the second aspect; it is where a certain manifestation already exists. It is the place where all creatures abide when the Great Pralaya (Cosmic Night) arrives, because they do not have the right to enter into the AIN, into the Unmanifested Absolute, which is beyond Thought, Word, Atom, Sound, beyond all of that which has Form, Number, Weight, etc.
AIN SOPH AUR is the third aspect, in accordance with the Kabbalah. Here we find the first Cosmos, the purely Spiritual Protocosmos. It is the Solar Absolute, which is formed by multiple Spiritual Suns.
Later in a lecture I will explain more in details what Prayala (or Cosmic Night) means, but for now I am going to give you a “head start” so you start thinking about this, also I will explain more in details as well, about the three aspects of the Absolute.
Prayala or Cosmic Night is The Day in which everything that is being created will Ceased to Exist. That Day, Cosmos, Galaxies, Universes, Suns, Moons, Planets, Human… will be destroyed and everything will be Dark . Everything will go to the Universal Soup, or as we hear scientists call it, “Quantum Soup” which is in the Second Aspect of the Absolute, and that is The AIN SOPH. Although every thing will be destroyed, the Seeds of everything that existed will be stored in the AIN SOPH, even the gods. So the AIN SOPH is The Store House of the Absolute. Now you can start thinking that, after a long while, the Wisest Gods will start The Other Round of Creation by starting to Create Light! Or as the Bible said, ” fiat, Fiat, or let it be Light!” And then after, cosmos, suns, universes, planets, human…. will be again. This Cosmic Drama repeat itself after trillions of years over and over again. I want to say also that Darkness is a Form of Light: in order to Be Light, Darkness has To Be, and in order To Be Darkness, Light has To Be.
Meditate on the Absolute and on the Prayala by placing the mind in quietude and in silence.
