Creation in Taoist tradition and European tradition

First the TAOist creation of the Three Logoi:

▪️ Tao gives birth to One,
▪️ One gives birth to Two,
▪️ The Two gives birth to Three,
▪️ The Three gives birth to all universal things.

All universal things shoulder the Yin and embrace the Yang.
The Yin and Yang mingle and mix with each other to beget the harmony.

The picture shows the universe in a symbolic way through the Yin-Yang symbol. The dark Yin is the not yet transformed and the Yang is the transformed Yin so we transform from left to right. The imaginary line between yin and yang is TAO, the soul, the true power of the universe.

▪️ The physical world and body (Xun) is the most difficult to transform and first in a far future can we transform it fully.
▪️ The etheric world and body (Kan) is not as hard and therefore easier to transform, but still, we will first be ready to make the transformation in the future.
▪️ The astral world and body is what we work with now, it’s here the ego with it’s karma is purified, transformed from the youngest daughter (Dui) to the youngest son (Gen), from left to right, to Manas.

The white in the soul also tells how developed each part are in the current part of the development. The soul is our central part, our sun, our heart, and it’s where we find God.

Here the creation in detail (Book of Change), how the eight Trigrams are created in the above figure representing the planetary powers working on earth and humanity:

▪️ The Creative (☰ Qian) is heaven, therefore, it is called the father.
▪️ The Receptive (☷ Kun) is the earth, therefore, it is called the mother.
▪️ In the Trigram of the Arousing (☳ Zhen,) she seeks for the first time the power of the male and receives a son. Therefore, the Arousing is called the Eldest Son. [The highest spiritual principle in man, Atma.]
▪️ In the Trigram of the Gentle (☴ Xun) the male seeks for the first time the power of the female and receives a daughter. Therefore, the Gentle is called the Eldest Daughter. [The lowest principle in man, the physical.]
▪️ In the Trigram of the Abysmal (☵ Kan) she seeks for a second time and receives a son. Therefore, it is called the Middle Son. [The second lowest principle, the etheric.]
▪️ In the Trigram of the Clinging (☲ Li) he seeks for a second time and receives a daughter. Therefore, it is called the Middle Daughter. [The second highest principle, Buddhi.]
▪️ In the Trigram of Keeping (☶ Gen) Still she seeks for a third time and receives a son. Therefore, it is called the Youngest Son. [The third highest principle, Manas.]
▪️ In the Trigram of the Joyous (☱ Dui) he seeks for a third time and receives a daughter. Therefore, it is called the Youngest Daughter. [The third lowest principle, the Astral.]

Here the same described in western terminology:

▪️ First came the Father, he created the physical world out of himself, he is Atma.
▪️ Then came the Son, (s)he created the etheric world out of herself, she is Buddhi.
▪️ Last came the Holy Spirit, he created the astral world out of himself, he is Manas.

So the rows defines each Logos, where creation starts from below.

▪️ The Holy Spirit is the master over the physical world. The Son and Father works through the Holy Spirit within the physical world.
▪️ The Son is master of the Soul, central creative power of creation, as shown through the whiteness in the YinYang symbol, and therefore the leading spiritual being, who is called the Logos in Saint John’s gospel.
▪️ The Father is master of the spiritual world, but not as developed as the soul, we haven’t transformed much of the physical yet.
