Analogy with the symbol of isis unveiled

June 30th 2011
Are there believers who do not dream of paradise? But, at the same time, they deny themselves entry by continuing to accumulate impurities within. Only those who work to regain their original purity will one day hear God himself say to them, ‘Come, come in and look.’ And what will they see? Bodies of light. In paradise, everyone is naked, clothed in light. The angels’ only clothing is light, for light is the very substance of their bodies. The ancient mysteries depicted the goddess Isis clothed in a veil, which only the great priests, the hierophants, were allowed to remove. This means that those who want to contemplate the Divinity must themselves be naked, that is, pure; otherwise, it will always remain veiled to them, and they will not succeed in discovering its secrets. As people gradually purify themselves, Isis unveils before them. Then they see, they understand, and all they experience is light and joy. That is true paradise.
