The Gnostic Church is the authentic church of our Lord the Christ. It is the temple of initiations and it is situated within the Astral Plane. Our Lord the Christ and the Holy Masters officiate there.

Whosoever reads our books and practices Sexual Magic will be internally connected with this temple. The disciple can also go there with his body of flesh and bones any time he wishes to do so. This can be done by practicing the procedure that I teach in chapter five, “Humans and Lands in Jinn State.”

On Fridays and Sundays, the disciple can assist the “Pretor” in order to receive the Holy Unction of bread and wine and in order to be cured of any sicknesses. This church has 11,000 vestals. The twenty and four elders of the Apocalypse (Revelation) dwell there.

This church has esoteric instruction rooms for the disciples, in which the Masters teach and instruct.

Whosoever wants to be united with his own Innermost necessarily has to pass through the nine arcades of the nine Initiations of Minor Mysteries. The aspirants of each initiation have rooms for their esoteric instruction.

Each initiation has its degrees, and each degree its ordeals. The human being is united with his Innermost in the High Initiation. This is how he is converted into a Master of Major Mysteries (read my book The Perfect Matrimony).

The Masters of the Holy Gnostic Church come to the bedside of the sick in order to heal them. There is a Gnostic prayer that every sick person must pronounce in order to ask the Masters for help. Behold, the prayer:

Gnostic Prayer

Oh Thou, Solar Logos, igneous emanation, substance and Consciousness of Christ, powerful life whereby everything advances, come unto me and penetrate me, enlighten me, bathe me, go through me and awaken within my Being all of those ineffable substances that are as much a part of Thee as a part of me.

Universal and cosmic force, mysterious energy, I conjure Thee, come unto me, remedy my affliction, cure me from this illness and put apart from me this suffering so I can have harmony, peace, and health.

I ask Thee in thy sacred name, which the mysteries and the Gnostic Church have taught me, so Thou can make vibrate with me all of the mysteries of this plane and superior planes, and that all of those forces together may achieve the miracle of my healing. So be it.

The Gnostic Church is especially concerned with sex.

Mistaken are all those who think that the nonsensical practices of Theosophy, the Rosicrucian Order, or Spiritism are necessary in order to be a Gnostic. Let all “Tyrians and Trojans” know that there are no abnormal people in our church. Thus, whosoever wants to be a Gnostic has to live a sane and equilibrated life.

There are decrepit old women and sexually exhausted old men who criticize us because we love sacred sex. Those fornicating elders and sanctimonious old women do not belong to the Gnostic Church, because the Gnostic Movement especially studies love and is founded upon the sexual force, the force with which God made the universe.

Abnormal individuals exist everywhere, those who boast of themselves because they have mediumistic faculties (through which are expressed certain larvae that pollute the Astral Plane). Those individuals say that they receive messages from our Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, they found lodges and societies with decrepit and ignorant old men. With their lack of respect for the most great and sublime Being who came into the world, they have reached the breaking point as impostors.

When we, the Gnostics , enter into the church of Christ, which is the Holy Gnostic Church, how difficult it is to attain the privilege of only touching the tassel of the sandals of the Master. What a difficult and laborious task it is to have the right of kissing the feet of his divine majesty, our Lord the Christ! Nevertheless, the mediums (channelers) are those who, cheated by astral larvae, say that they have communication with the Solar Logos, the Christ. What dim-witted individuals!

Let us put ourselves aside from the Spiritists and let us advance upon the theme. What is important is for a man to learn how to love, how to adore the woman, how to delight in the joy of sex without spilling the semen (without reaching the orgasm).

Man was made for the woman, and vice versa, the woman for the man. Male and female sexually unite, with the divine difference of not ejaculating the semen (without reaching the orgasm), by learning how to withdraw in time; this separates them from the brutish ones.

So, just as there are canals for spilling the semen, so are there canals for its transmutation, in order to upsurge it to the head in the human organism. It is necessary to learn how to use these ascending canals, to learn how to handle the snake, and to snatch the passionate beast. There is the need to exchange passion for force, for power.
