The mysticism of The Twelve Blessings defies the comprehension of fools like me and most people who examine it.
And yet, somewhere we can see the profundity of it.
And certainly, when we’re able to perform very advanced meditation, those inner meanings will be revealed more to us.
Take this statement from the Eleventh Blessing:
They are the Divisions in… Which is the Beginning.
They are the Potential within… Which is the End.
They are the Realisers of the Potential and the Potential–Itself.
That refers to the Supreme Lords of Creation.
“…the Divisions in… Which is the Beginning.” What a wonderful poetic way of talking about the beginning of manifestation. The divisions which brought about creation.
“…the Potential within… Which is the End.” And of course, that is where we are going to go. And they were there before. And they will be there after creation itself.
And then this wonderful statement: “They are the Realisers of the Potential and the Potential–Itself.” They don’t just realize it, they are it.
I think an intellectual examination of that would almost… reduce it. It’s something we can only understand when we start to contemplate and allow its inner meaning to come to us.
