Being Ability to do – Power to do – Will to do
Question: ..... does it talk about knowing, being able to
be and being able to do?
Answer: The hermetic Philosophy says not to mix up the devotional
attitude with the spiritual aspect. The action of the Mystic is expressed through
three aspects which transcend the common speculative ability: « ability
to do »; « power to do »
ed « will to do». And these are eventually
synthesized in the «Act of will» expressed in Being as opposed to
the “appearing” of the material appearance.
Ability to do is the aspect of activity: the evolution
on the physical-emotional level.
Power to do is the aspect of knowledge: the interaction
with the level of soul – the so-called pure thought free from instinctive
features of the animal soul.
Will to do is the aspect of will: the interaction
with the monad or spiritual level.
These three aspects are the triad of the inner abilities that allow the reflection
of the supreme Being to be inside us. The Cosmic Triad, called the major Triad.
