A Summary Explanation of Symbol No. 4 – The Road towards Light
Quotation from the Web-Site of Martinus Institute, www.martinus.dk
Living beings evolve from primitive forms of life to higher ones.
At a certain stage the religious principle emerges in the mental structure of the living being. This principle underlies not only a religious way of being, but also materialism, all politics and all other kinds of prominent forms of consciousness. This principle is nourished by the principle of world redemption, and guides people to an understanding of the solution to the mystery of life.
The main details of the symbol no. 4, The Road towards the Light
- The horizontal cone-shaped figure represents a section of the universe itself.
- The vertical figures that are divided into three each symbolise a living being. The white area symbolises the being’s eternal, highest I; the violet area symbolises its eternal cosmic structure with its faculty and experience, and the coloured area symbolises its physical organism and its consciousness.
- The fact that the figures increase in size from left to right indicates the beings’ evolution. The coloured areas symbolise the following planes of existence:
indigo – the mineral kingdom
red – the plant kingdom
orange – the animal kingdom
yellow – the real human kingdom
- The area between the vertical white line in the animal kingdom and the yellow area symbolises the unfinished human being’s zone of evolution.
- The yellow ray that extends from a small star to a larger one symbolises the religious principle. This stimulates the development of consciousness from a stage of belief, through materialism and godlessness to cosmic consciousness.
- Figure II in the small picture on the left shows that the unfinished human being experiences only his physical organism and other created phenomena. The cosmically conscious human being – figure III – experiences both the physical structure and the spiritual one.

THE EVOLUTION FROM ANIMAL TO HUMAN on the road towards the Light
Seen in the great perspective of evolution the terrestrial human being is a transitional stage between animal and human. In its consciousness there is an animal side, which is being phased out and a human side, which is in the process of growing. But how can one oneself stimulate this development?
Martinus answers, “Every time one feels antipathy, indignation, intolerance, bitterness and anger one is fattening up one’s animal temperament. The same thing applies if one spreads slander or derogatory rumours about one’s neighbour, or if one lies to or deceives this neighbour. If one goes hunting of fishing one also promotes to an extreme degree one’s animal talent or temperament. If one eats meat or lives on an animal diet or if one breeds animals in order to slaughter them for their skins, one is also to the very highest degree keeping the animal temperament alive. If one is enthusiastic about war and the military, one is making it hard for oneself, purely from the point of view of one’s fate, because the law is quite firm that ‘he who takes the sword shall perish with the sword’.” (English Kosmos, no. 4/2006).
