The Power of Concealment

There is often a beautiful Light within people and things that appear to be negative.

Take Abraham the Patriarch, for example. One of the highest souls of humanity, he came from a father who was an idol-maker. Even Moses was born from the sexual union of two relatives.

But why is this great Light concealed? It is so the negativity of the Left Column, the Desire to Receive for the Self Alone, doesn’t consume the Light before it has a chance to grow and become its true essence. We never know from what vessel true spirituality will come, so this means that more often than not, we must look beyond the apparent darkness to see the most powerful Light shining.
