Notes on 666

Notes on 666:

6 is half of 12, which is the number for wholeness or the state of being complete.

When a number is tripled, as in 666, it indicates a kind of exponential power. In this case, it denotes a universal or general “principle.”

In 666, only the physical (instinctual/intellectual) mind is acknowledged. It means “worldly minded,” the mentality that denies the existence of the “unseen” and that rejects metaphysics and theism.

The Book of Revelation has been described as a roadmap for those who have accepted the teachings of Jesus Christ and are now endeavoring to incorporate them into their lives. It is a text for those who have stepped foot on the spiritual path, not those who are still in the process of deciding whether they should.

Consequently, those who have accepted the teachings are now in the throes of transformation, and this is where all hell breaks loose—Armageddon.

The “beast” is all of the worldly-mindedness in ourselves that must give way to spiritual-mindedness. And this can be a real struggle.

This is an inner “war,” not an outer one, although there’s nothing that says that civilizations can’t go through (or mirror) the process of transformation of an individual. This has happened many times throughout history every time a major shift in consciousness takes place.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse:

White horse: our spiritual nature
Red Horse: our emotional nature
Black Horse: our intellectual nature
Pale Horse: our physical nature

It doesn’t take much to see that these four elements of ourselves—in their un-transformed state—are our chief “adversaries.”

  1. See the Apocalypse of St. John by Dr. R. Steiner. 666 is also an evolutionary time of the Earth into the future.

    Church steeped in so much fear and superstition for so long, I laugh at myself when I sink into it, become conscious of where it is coming from and move on.
