Knowledge is belief only; and having for its foundation the five physical senses; its judgement and findings are always false. As we gain wisdom we let go our false beliefs, and thus die daily, as St. Paul truthfully declares.
There is in nature one most potent force, by
means whereof a single man, who could possess
himself of it, and should know how to direct it,
could revolutionize and change the face of the
This force was known to the ancients. It is a
universal agent, whose supreme law is equilibrium;
and whereby, if science can but learn how to control
it, it will be possible to change the order of the
Seasons ; to produce in night the phenomena of day;
to send a thought in an instant round the world; to
heal or slay at a distance ; to give our words universal
success, and make them reverberate everywhere.
“Ptah is Maat, the divine wisdom, though from another aspect he is Svabhavat, the self created substance. As a prayer addressed to him in the ritual of the dead says: After calling Ptah “father of all fatherhood and of all gods, generator of all the human beings produced by his substance. “Thou art without father, being, engendered by thy own will; thou art without mother, being born by the renewal of thine own substance from whom proceeds substance.”
- H. P. Blavatsky

"In the Judeo-Christian scriptures there are many "arks," but to find them one must know the Hebrew letters. Yet, it is not exclusively a Western symbol, as variations of the sacred vessel occur in every religion."
"The Ark is the sacred Argha of the Hindus, and thus the relation in which it stands to Noah’s ark may be easily inferred when we learn that the Argha was an oblong vessel, used by the high priests as a sacrificial chalice in the worship of Isis, Astarte, and Venus-Aphrodite, all of whom were goddesses of the generative powers of nature, or of matter — hence representing symbolically the Ark containing the germs of all living things."
- H.P. Blavatsky (“Isis Unveiled,” Vol. II., p. 444.)”
"People are scared to empty their minds fearing that they will be engulfed by the void. What they don’t realize is that their own mind is the void."
