Stages Of the Journey / The Supreme Goal

''Open the Floodgates''

When one is at the Gateway, the beginning of the journey to the Absolute, there are various states which descend upon the spiritual traveller. Each one is itself a gateway orienting the seeker to the journey ahead. Ansari (Islamic mystic) has described the stages or houses as being ten tens.

The stages are descibed in other terms by Simnani, who relates the macrocosmic Descent of creation to the microcosmic Ascent of the return.

From the Divine Essence to the world of Nature-Man, there are seven levels, from light to shadow. On the return, one passes these seven stages in reverse order, ascending through seven subtle, non-physical aspects of the self.

These 7 subtle stages relate to the 7 major Prophets of semitic monotheism,
Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, and Muhammad (blessings and peace by on them).

These stages also correspond with our own Subtle bodies. When one reaches the Truth of one's Being, one has become the universal prototype, having being transformed to the Muhammad of one's being.

These 7 Prophets and 7 stages correspond to seven colours, described by the various orders. The Adam of one's being is the aquiring of an embryonic mould of a new body, a subtle, non physical form.
The psychological colour of this stage is black moving toward grey.

The second organ newly activated corresponds to the animal soul, the battlefield of vital and organic operations, which is the center of desires and evil passions. This corresponds to the Noah of ones being, because Noah faced the same situation in dealing with hostility of his people. The colour of this stage is blue.

The third subtle organ is the spiritual Heart, which exists in an embyonic form in the potential mysticas the pearl within the shell. It is none other than the true I, the personal individuality. The spiritual I relates to the Abraham of one's being, as Abraham was the intimate friend of God. This stage is red. The Abraham of one's being travels the subtle centers of the supraconsciousness.

The fourth subtle organ is the inner microcosmic secret, the point of Supraconsciousness, and is the stage of spiritual monologues which correspond to those in which Moses participated. The colour of this stage is white.

The fifth subtle organ is the spirit, which because of the nobility of it's rank is invested as the vice-regent of God, the David of one's being, it's colour is yellow.

The sixth subtle organ is that which recieves inspiration. It is the Jesus of one's being, because it is this organ which announces the name. The colour of this stage is luminous black.

The seventh subtle organ which is activated is the Muhammad of one's being, which corresponds to one's divine center or Eternal Seal, as Muhammad was the Seal of Prophecy. The colour of this stage is green.

In the stages of ascent and descent Macrocosm Microcosm

The world of Nature-Man The mould of the body The Adam of one's Being The world of forms The Vital senses The Noah of one's Being
The world of spiritual perception The Heart (spiritual) The Abraham of one's Being
The world of imagination The edge of supraconsciousness
The Moses of one's being
The world beyond form The Spirit The David of one's being
Divine Nature Inspiration The Jesus of one's Being
Divine Essence Truth The Muhammad of one's Being The need for Divine Law is often compared to Noah's Arc, which one must, like Noah, build out of planks and dowels.

The planks are 'Knowledges' and the dowels are 'Actions'. Without the Arc, one is drowned in the flood of materiality, as was Noahs son who refused the Law delivered by his father, from God. Standing on the circumference, one relates in an outward direction through the manifest world.

The motion inwards is through the spiritual methods which lead to the center, Secret or Spirit which resides in a state of potentiality in all things. If we remain unaware, the spirit remains passive and unactivated, only an allusion to the potentality we contain.
