“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.” - Revelation 11:1

That “reed like unto a rod” is our spinal column. A canal exists along that reed; through this canal ascends the fire of the Holy Spirit that emerges from our sexual organs. This Pentecostal fire resembles an ardent and terrific divine serpent. For a husband, what is important is to know how to love his wife. For this it is important that during the sexual act they learn how to withdraw without spilling the semen. This is how the fire of the Holy Spirit is awakened. This is how the ardent serpent from our reproductive organs is lifted up. There is nothing more sublime than love, the kiss, and the sexual act. So, when we do not spill the semen, the latter is then transmuted into seminal vapors and these seminal vapors are transmuted into energies.

The sexual energies are then bipolarized into positive and negative; the positive are solar and the negative are lunar.

These solar and lunar currents rise up to the brain; the solar currents are related to the right nostril and the lunar currents to the left nostril.

The solar and lunar currents from our sexual gonads rise up to the sacred chalice, which is the brain, through a pair of canals. These canals that rise to the brain are two nervous, sympathetic cords that entwine along the spinal medulla. Fill up your chalice, brethren, with the sacred wine of light. “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.” [Revelation 11:3] These two sympathetic nervous cords are the two witnesses.

These sacred cords are symbolized in the two braids of hair that hang from the back of Xilonen, the symbolic Aztec sculpture.

“These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.” - Revelation 11:3-5

Our two sympathetic cords are terribly divine, because when their solar and lunar atoms unite in the coccygeal bone, the serpent of ardent fire awakens. This is why the two witnesses have such a remarkable power.

“These have power to shut heaven, and that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” - Revelation 11:6

Behold how beautiful these two witnesses appear on the back of the Aztec Goddess Xilonen!

So, the two witnesses awaken the serpent of fire, which is called Kundalini by the Hindus. Amongst the Aztecs the serpent of fire is called Quetzalcoatl, and they represent it with the rattlesnake. This is the fire of the Holy Spirit that is comparable to a fiery serpent, which when awakened hisses very similarly to the hiss emitted by any serpent of flesh and bone. Its hiss is like a still, small, divine sound, similar to the one produced by the rattles of the rattlesnake, or like the subtle chirp of the cricket.

This sexual serpent awakens with the ardent kiss and with Sexual Magic. This serpent is septuple in its internal constitution. This serpent has the power to open all the seven churches of our spinal column, and can transform us so that we can become as Gods. Only the two witnesses have the power to awaken it, and to open heaven. The formula to awaken the serpent is the following, “Introduce the virile member into the feminine vagina, and withdraw without spilling the semen.”

According to the practice of Sexual Magic and according to the purification performed by the student, he inevitably and systematically receives the Nine Initiations of Minor Mysteries in his Consciousness; these nine initiations are nothing but the probationary esoteric path. Nonetheless, it is possible that the student may not apprehend the secret mysteries related with the Nine Initiations of Minor Mysteries in the physical world, since these initiatic events occur in the Consciousness, and if the student does not know how to bring his memories into his physical brain, logically, in the physical world he will be oblivious of those events, since these are very intimate matters that concern only his Consciousness.

The two witnesses have the power to awaken for us the fire of the Holy Spirit. The serpent is lifted up little by little in accordance with our purification. This is how we prepare ourselves for the Nine Initiations of Major Mysteries. The Minor Mysteries are nothing else than the preparatory path for the Major Mysteries.

The Minor Mysteries are also a chain that we have to break; this chain is broken only when we arrive at the Major Mysteries, because in the Major Mysteries the two witnesses have the power to lift the fiery serpent up to the atom of the Father, which resides at the root of the nose, and when this happens our Innermost then receives the First Initiation of Major Mysteries.

For this, transmute your sexual energies and withdraw from all those spiritualist schools which are dens of Fornication, sodomy, homosexuality, and mystical autoeroticism.

In the city of Barranquilla, Colombia, we knew a man who boasted that he was a Master. This man always lived surrounded by children, until the police discovered that he was an inverted corruptor of minors, a pedophile. This black magician boasted about being a Free Buddhist, and since he lived always surrounded by children, imbecilic people believed him and said to themselves, “This is indeed a great master,” thus all of them inclined themselves in reverence before this venerable phony master, who was a “sublime pedophile.”

At that time, in that city of Barranquilla lived a wretched, old spiritualist woman who venerated this sublime pedophile master; this wretched granny claimed that she played chess with our very own Jesus Christ; yes, she hobnobbed with God, and directed an association of fornicators entitled “The Universal Fraternal Society.”

Likewise, we knew a man who endured twenty-five years practicing mystical autoeroticism; he was a disciple of another impostor named Omar Cherenzi-Lind; yes, he was a mystic that venerated the impostor Omar Cherenzi-Lind, the “troubadour of pleasant vices.”

Pathetically, this is what the spiritualism of the twenty century is: a horrible and filthy mixture of mysticisms with Fornication, lasciviousness, homosexuality, Adultery, swindles, mystic robbery, exploitation, sexual corruption, etc.

All of these perverse, filthy, mobster fornicators boast about being “sublime masters,” gurus, avatars, great reformers, etc. None of them wants to be insignificant; all of them believe they are great and powerful.

This is why we advise you to practice Sexual Magic and withdraw forever from those dens of iniquity. Seek your inner “I Am,” because He is the only one who can save you.

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city; For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” - Revelation 22:13-15

The two witnesses shut the doors of Eden to all those perverse spiritualists. The two witnesses are terribly divine: “These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.” - Revelation 11:6, 4 In India, the two witnesses are known as Ida and Pingala; these are their Sanskrit names.

Therefore, we must practice Sexual Magic with our spouse and withdraw from those spiritualist schools that tolerate mystical whoredom.

We knew of a good marriage within which, unfortunately, the wife had the absurd complex of combining schools; her husband, exhausted from his work, arrived to his house and instead of finding peace, caresses and repose, what he found was Theosophists, Rosicrucians, Aquarianists, Spiritualists, Masons, etc. All of those people were an unbearable group of chattering parrots who disturbed that wretched man’s tranquility to the breaking point of finally terminating such a marriage. Thus, the man married another woman and his ex-wife kept her cage of chattering parrots.

Indeed, the spiritualism of this century only provokes nausea, since all those cage-like schools are filled with chattering parrots, sublime whoredom, ineffable gossip, mystical thievery, divine imposters, assassins of souls, etc. Those who engage this type of spiritualists are exposed to thievery. Those who host this type of spiritualists in their home can be sure that they could lose their spouse or daughter or their goods.

There are very dangerous types of spiritualist devotees who always find the word “hate” as an excusable door in order to escape, and thus avoid the very grave problems that we are exposing here. Yes, they always allege that we “hate,” and thereafter they present to us a Christ invented by them, namely a weak, effeminate Christ who is complacent with crime, who is an accomplice of whoredom and Pharisees, a cowardly Christ who did not eject the merchants from the temple, a Christ that did not accuse the most “sanctimonious Pharisees” of hypocrisy, a Christ that did not condemn the doctors of the law, a Christ that did not qualify the tenebrous entities as a perverse generation of vipers, etc. This is the horrible sacrilege that these types of spiritualist devotees do; they are the ones who daily thrash the Lord.

We Gnostics are not accomplices of delinquency; this is why we denounce crime, because we do not like to hide crimes.

We work for a decent, neat, clean, gentlemanly and honorable Gnosticism. We want less wordiness and more actions.

We want a practical Gnosticism without mystical auto-eroticisms, without “parrots,” without filthiness. We must morally bathe and clean ourselves.

We must learn how to consciously travel in the Astral body. We must resurrect our two witnesses by means of Sexual Magic, thus the fire of Pentecost will awaken. And when this fire burns the scum, the larvae, the filthiness, we then enter into the mysteries of fire; this is how we Christify ourselves. Therefore, to want to unite and associate with schools of fornicators who are complacent with whoredom is the breaking point of absurdity, because the new era signifies death to the spiritualist schools of this century. The new era will be initiated by blood and fire.

We will end this chapter by clarifying that within the term “Spiritualism” we are including all those cage-like schools where futile, chattering parrots gather, namely: Theosophism, Rosicrucianism, Spiritualism, Aquarianism, Martinism, Masonry, Mazdaznan, Circles of Communion of Thought, Anthroposophism, diverse independent groups, Brethren of Dharma, Krishnamurtianism, and thousands of religious sects or spiritual groups whose doctrines are filled with mystical Fornication, useless intellectualism, and absurd fanaticism.

Understand that when we use the term “Spiritualism,” we are addressing their fornicating spiritualist devotees, because through that term we are embracing all those types of fornicating people who belong to the distinct schools, lodges, orders, halls, centers, etc.
