Question: What can we learn from Pharaoh?
Answer: We can learn from Pharaoh loyalty to the Creator. He carries out his task to the letter, faithfully and diligently. He is a true Creator’s serf like no other.
In fact, we are dealing with a mechanical force hidden in nature. On each path and at each degree, in every molecule and atom, in every combination and relation, it calculates how to take possession of everything it can possibly have. It is a unique internal program that works in every particle of creation, every system, and every combination.
That’s what “Pharaoh” is: something common, omnipotent, and present in every desire, in all of created reality. It doesn’t leave any particle of creation alone for a second. Amid the stars and galaxies, in our world and all others, there is this universal, integral program. And this is what we have to learn from Pharaoh: a persistent, compromise-free approach to our responsibilities.
Moreover, instead of the old program, we must make sure to install the new one. Besides, this upgrade pertains to Pharaoh: We employ him and by no means delete him for uselessness. Spiritual upgrades are always installed over the already existent program support. We work on Pharaoh, on our receiving desire, replacing the egoistic intention with the altruistic one, while Pharaoh’s desire as such remains.
We have the intention and desire to receive, which is a pre-set, active system; that is what exists. And then, we switch this intention to bestowal, while keeping the desire to receive. Thus, we come out into the spiritual reality, the one that will be.
Below there is Pharaoh, above there is the Creator, and they oppose each other. And the transition is made by way of the Light.
