Outpourings, three

This refers to the three stages of the Creative process by a Logos. The substance of the planes of perception is first poured forth. (The first Outpouring, related to the Mother aspect.) Then the many streams of Life, the twelve Creative Hi­erarchies, that embody the con­sciousness-aspect is poured forth to animate these planes of perception and find their fields for evolutionary activity. (The Second Outpouring, related to the Son aspect.) Finally at a certain stage of evolution the Third Outpouring of the Father or Spirit aspect happens to cause the In­dividualisation of a human kingdom on Earth. This results in the path of active return we call Initiation into the Mysteries of the King­dom of God.
