        Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

        THE TEXT

        "The first Path is called the Admirable or Hidden Intelligence because it is the Light giving the power of comprehension of the First Principle, which hath no beginning.  And it is the Primal Glory, because no created being can attain to its essence."


        "Hidden" equals "Admirable."  The idea here being that whatever description follows about the hidden nature of the intelligence of the first Path, that nature is an admirable one, admirable meaning "right, correct, the natural way," the Way of the Tao and Universe, the organic and the admirable way for man to respond to himself when seeking his deepest self.  The hidden nature is the admirable one!

        Now what is the "Admirable" function of the First Principal?  "... the power of comprehension of the First Principle...", implying that since Kether is the First Principle, this is the power to comprehend itself -- consciousness is folded in on itself.  This is the mode of consciousness which looks not outward but only inward onto its own being, the goal being the absolute and complete experience of itself.

        This is deemed "Admirable" and implies that introspection is the admirable way for man to behave in order to come to a complete comprehension of himself.  The nature of that comprehension, however, is not intellectual but of a particular experiential type which is hinted at in the text, "...comprehension of the First Principle, which hath no beginning...", implying that the comprehension is not by the mind alone; one cannot comprehend a thing "which hath no beginning" with the intellect.

        What then is the nature of this type of comprehension?  Its nature is experiential, a thing contemplating itself and attaining absolute comprehension of itself when it has an absolute experience of itself, an event which transcends the intellect.

        This experience is comprised of a connected awareness of the essence of self, the connection being between the intellect and the body, the body being the somatic component of feeling.  It is this connection which is responsible for our ability to feel the meaning of a thought (like "my Mother died"), to have an intuition or to have a blinding flash of insight.

        Another way of expressing this connection is that it is between the intellect and the feeling-self, that part of ourselves which can be one with the great Spirit.  Our feeling-self is a whole, a gestalt, which reflects the Macrocosm.  It is made up of the body and that part of consciousness which is not the intellect, but something more akin to the Qabalistic Chiah, the Creative Mind.  The relationship might be illustrated thus:

        The Connection = Intellect + Feeling-self.

        The Feeling-self = Body + Chiah.

        Comprehension, then, involves connected awareness, involving not only our intellect, but our body as well -- as it functions when connected with Chiah, our Creative and Higher Self.  Only by accessing our Feeling-self and combining it with our intellect can we comprehend what cannot be comprehended.

        These connections, involving the body with the intellect and higher centers, suggest the opposite -- separation -- and indeed man is a self-separated being; we need but look around to confirm this fact.  For us to attain the comprehension of our deepest selves we must somehow return to our connected unity.  Then we too will be able to manifest "Admirable Intelligence."

        Love is the law, love under will.
