The other pole within ourselves that unites us with god

October 13th 2022
Consciously or unconsciously, every human being searches for their soulmate. The truth is that our soulmate is our self, our other pole, which lives on high with God in a state of perfection and fulfilment. This is why in all initiations the master taught the disciples how to find themselves. In India, the methods of Jnana yoga are designed to teach the yogi how to unite with his higher self, for it is by uniting with his higher self that he unites with God Himself. In Greece, the same idea was expressed in the formula inscribed on the pediment of the temple in Delphi, ‘Know thyself’. The meaning of this phrase is not that which is generally ascribed to it: know that you are a man, and that as a man you are finite. No, true knowledge is a fusion of the two principles. This is the meaning of the words in Genesis, ‘And Adam knew Eve’, or ‘Abraham knew Sarah’. ‘Know thyself’ therefore means: find the other pole in yourself. If you are a man, the other pole is the feminine principle; if you are a woman, it is the masculine principle, with which you merge in purity and light.
