Symbol 23
The Finished Human Being in God’s Image after His Likeness

A Summary Explanation of Symbol No. 23 - The Finished Human Being in God’s Image after His Likeness


The finished human being in God’s image is a being that has passed through the entire dark zone of the spiral cycle, has mastered this zone entirely and is now a perfect being of light. Its greatest emanation is pure neighbourly love, quite regardless of whether this neighbour is a plant, an animal or a human being, and quite regardless of whether this neighbour is a friend or an enemy. It is thus in contact with the keynote of the universe, which is love. It can take on suffering and give its life for others.

The main details of the symbol:

  • The small triangle with the heart figure symbolises a living being.
  • The heart figure symbolises that the being has a perfect ability to love; the two joined hands in the heart figure symbolise its perfect ability to forgive.
  • The large orange arc is a returning arc of fate that the being itself originally sent out.
  • The large yellow arc shows that the human being receives the dark arc of fate with great friendliness and thereby sends out a light arc of fate. This perfect way of receiving one’s dark fate leads the being out of the animal kingdom and into the real human kingdom.
  • The large triangle symbolises the Godhead, and the white halo of rays around the triangle symbolises the Godhead’s primary consciousness. The coloured sections at the outer edge of the aura of rays symbolise the various planes of existence.
  • The five-pointed star in the aura of rays symbolises world redemption.
  • The Christ-like being in the triangle symbolises the finished human being.
  • At the bottom we see a series of the being’s incarnations connected by arcs of fate that gradually change from being murderous to being humane.
  • The emergence of the Earth from cloud cover that is dispersing symbolises that the mankind of the Earth will grow so as to be able to live in a kingdom of love, where everyone loves everyone else.
