Is condensed light

January 11th 2017
What is blood? For Initiatic Science every drop of blood is a quintessence of matter, for it contains the principles of the four elements: earth, water, air and fire. Blood corresponds to the life circulating in the universe, and within us it is the substance that most closely resembles the light. Blood is this life which St. John, at the beginning of his Gospel, wrote is ‘the light of men.’ Now light is the very matter of creation. The Genesis account reveals that to create the world God first called light. God said, ‘Let there be light!’ It is this light that is condensed in our blood. So we must be very careful and consider it with great respect, realizing that it is the condensed light, condensed divine life. And as the blood always returns to the heart, our life must return to the heart of the universe, the Creator.
