Quotes and Dedications for Inspiritation

~*~  “The hypercosmic gods are utterly transcendent and closest in activity to the noetic realm. Sallustius divides them into three orders. Unfortunately he does not list the members of the orders, saying they are found in other treatises. He does say some create essence, some intelligence, and some souls. This is somewhat similar to Proclus’ four orders: creative, life-making, elevating, and immaculate. Proclus does name these gods in relation to the above categorization: Zeus, within whom are assumed Poseidon and Pluto; Kore, within whom are Artemis, who is equated with Hekate, Persephone, and Athena; Apollo, who is equated with Helios; and the Corybantes. These invisible gods are the ultimate source of liberation from the phenomenal realm for the descended soul. However, because of their position, they are all but unknowable by the soul. Discursive reasoning, the rational soul’s main mode of thinking, cannot grasp these transcendent beings. They are accessible only through gnosis via the liberated gods. This gnosis is like the knowing of the gods: complete and immediate.” From the book Living Theurgy, byJeffrey S. Kupperman

~*~

“The virtue of Faith, pistis, which has nothing to do with blind belief, is associated with the sub-lunar Demiurge. In the Oracles, this is represented by Hekate, Hades, and possibly Dionysos. Faith is represented by the rays of the visible sun in Iamblichean theology, and the crucified Christ in Christianity. Proclus sees it as the sole theurgic power through which union with the One occurs. Together, the Demiurges are the “Teletarchs of the mysteries,” and are engaged in the most important parts of theurgic rites.” From Living Theurgy by Jeffrey S. Kupperman
