In accordance with the great Kabbalist Leo Schaya, “The ten fundamental aspects of God, or Sefiroth, are manifested at first on the macrocosmical level in the form of ten heavens. The three supreme Sefiroth, kether-hokhmah-binah, are revealed in the three ‘heavens of heavens’, the triple immanent principle: that is, shekhinah-metatron-avir. Shekhinah is the immanence of kether, the presence of divine reality in the midst of the cosmos. Metatron, the manifestation of hokhmah and the active aspect of the shekhinah, is the principal form from which all created forms emanate; avir, the ether, is a manifestation of binah: it is the passive aspect of shekhinah, its cosmic receptivity, which gives birth to every created substance, whether subtle or corporeal. (Leo Schaya, The Universal Meaning of the Kabbalah, Unwin paperbacks London, 1989, p., p.68)
In essence the Ninth Heaven is connected with the manifestation of Hokhmah, the principal form from which all created forms emanate. In The Book of Revelation St. John witnessed the mystery of God creating the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth: Then the one who sits on the throne said, ‘And now I make all things new!’… ‘It is done! I am the first and the last, the beginning and the end’. (Revelation 21:5-6)
We can compare this process to a great spiritual ‘big bang’ which changes the metaphysics of the world. The physical ‘big bang’ gave birth to the material universe; the new spiritual ‘big bang’ ignited by G-d gives birth to the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth. It is a New Genesis in which life in the whole of Creation takes a new direction. It is the greatest blessing for human beings to be able to contemplate and even participate in the new creation! To the New Genesis are dedicated a number of chapters in my books, as well as many collective contemplation and meditation of our international group over the years.
The great Bulgarian Spiritual Master Beinsa Douno gives an amazing apocalyptic picture of the Divine Action for the recreation of the world and the New Genesis:
The great Divine Masters of the Universal Brotherhood, who guide the entire cosmos, after the completion of each evolution, create new waves of evolution following another plan and another rhythm. Under the guidance of their mighty spirits, the advanced spirits who created the solar systems, including our own, at one time descended from the highest peaks of creation. They also created and organised the primal “cosmic” earth – what was once “paradise”. On that “cosmic earth” still live those perfected forefathers of men who completed their evolution. They are the great ancestors of humanity.
Those creators of the past, those great ancestors, again today, descend to our earth. And they will transform it into a paradise. Together with them will come those 144,000 souls spoken of in Revelation and among whom there will be representatives of all past and present nations. All saints, adepts and Masters from time immemorial will come. They will activate, with their mighty spirits, all awakened souls from the four corners of the earth and all together they will establish the perfect order and harmony in the world. After finishing their task, they will withdraw and leave humanity to live and work under the new conditions. Thus, the communication between the visible and invisible worlds will be restored.
This is the way in which the Great Universal Brotherhood has worked, works now, and will work in the world. And it will work until the one Love, the one Wisdom and the one Truth envelop all of creation. Then every living being will praise God in sacred peace and harmony. (Beinsa Douno, The Master Speaks, Alpha-Dar 1998, page 137).
As could be seen from the apocalyptic vision which the Master Beinsa Douno depicts, the Divine Action activates all three worlds in Creation (the Earthly, the Celestial and the Divine) and integrates the past, the present and the future in the history of humankind. “The great Masters of the Universal Brotherhood who guide the entire cosmos” are in the Highest Divine World. Being one with the Living G-d, they participated in the creation of Heaven and Earth, described in the first chapter of the Bible – Genesis. Now they participate in the creation of the New Heaven and the New Earth where the new humankind will live.
The advanced spirits who created and organised the primal cosmic earth – what was once Paradise now again descend on earth. They, with the great Ancestors of humanity, are representatives of the Celestial World and participate actively in the new Divine Action for transforming the Earth into a Garden of Paradise.
“Together with them will come those 144 thousand souls spoken of in the Book of Revelation and among whom there are representatives of all past and present nations.” All these 144 thousand souls are a symbol of the enlightened humankind who, in accordance with the Revelation of St. John remain in the Higher Divine Worlds “singing the song” of the New Creation which is coming (Revelation 14:1-3). “All saints, adepts and Masters from time immemorial will come”, i.e. the Initiates from the whole history of humankind will come in order to participate in the great apocalyptic event.
“Their mighty spirits will direct all awakened souls from the four corners of the Earth and all of them together will establish perfect order and harmony in the world.” The awakened souls are the representatives of the Earthly World, followers of all spiritual traditions who are on the path of Love, Wisdom and Truth and are called to participate in the Divine Action.
The Divine Action, which the Master Beinsa Douno depicts, is the ascent of humankind into the Kingdom of God where there are many mansions and the establishment of this Divine Reality down on Earth. This is the end of the dramatic history of human race after the Fall of Adam and Eve and the beginning of a new cosmic cycle in the evolution of human beings as God’s people in the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth. This is why the Master Beinsa Douno concludes that the work will continue “until the one Love, the one Wisdom and the one Truth envelop all of Creation. Then every living being will praise God in sacred peace and harmony.” Thus the Testament of Truth will be fulfilled and humankind will live in all three worlds simultaneously, i.e. “the communication between the visible and the invisible worlds will be restored.”
The great Divine Action for the re-creation of the world and the transformation of human culture has begun and unfolds with greater and greater power and dynamism. Soon it will affect the whole of humankind and will present the great choice – the establishment of peace, harmony and order in the world, or entry into the tragic cycle of wars, ecological disasters and self-destruction. Every person on Earth will be faced with this choice. With the choice however come the consequences.
Participation in the Divine Wedding, resulting in co-creation with God, is the highest stage of human evolution on Earth. At this stage the human beings develop the highest Divine qualities, abilities and virtues, that of Sons and Daughters of G-d, who participate consciously in the evolution of the Universe. Finally, through co-creation with G-d they develop themselves as Divine Temples where the Holy Spirit comes to remain forever.
In the Ninth Heaven, Co-creation in the New Genesis, we will become co-creators with the Divine Masters and the Manifestations of the Divine Mother – the greatest blessing that human being can receive in Creation! It is only through the miracle of Co-creation with God that human beings can completely unfold the Divine potential of their higher Selves. Moreover, Co-creation is the way in which they can express the uniqueness of their spirits ‘printed’ in them from the beginning of their existence. By following the Path of the Initiate, every human being will receive a unique mission in the great apocalyptic process of re-creation of the world. And because they will be in G-d’s consciousness and the Living G-d will act through them, their unique missions will be inscribed in the Great Divine Plan for the New World. Through Co-creation with God the human beings will penetrate to the very depths of the New Appearances of the Divine Masters because the Masters themselves co-create with G-d in the Divine Action.
Co-creation with God is the highest stage of human evolution on Earth. It comes after the First Resurrection (when we awaken our Souls and enter into the Garden of Paradise), after the Second Resurrection (the process of awakening our higher Divine Self and becoming immortal citizens of the Heavenly Jerusalem), and after receiving the Crown of Initiations through meeting the Divine Masters and receiving their Initiations for the new cosmic cycle. The new stage of Co-creation with God will help us to develop the highest Divine qualities, abilities and virtues of Sons and Daughters of God who participate actively in the evolution of Creation. Co-creation with God will help us to build ourselves as Divine Temples where the Divine Spirit will remain forever. Co-creation with God is our way for final union with the CREATOR!
