Indeed, the Elixir of Long Life is a powerful, electropositive and electronegative, immaculate, white gas. When the initiate asks for the Elixir of Long Life, he enters into the temple of Sanat Kumara who reads to the initiate all the conditions and sacred requirements.

Sanat Kumara is the founder of the College of Initiates of the White Lodge. He lives in an oasis in the Gobi desert with other Lemurian initiates. They all continue to use the same physical bodies of more than 18,000,000 years ago. Thus, Sanat Kumara greets the initiate and tells him, “You are another immolated being on the altar of great sacrifice.” Thereafter he blesses the initiate.

Subsequently, within the internal worlds, the initiate enters into another temple, on the porch of which there is an inscription that reads, “Gnostic Temple of Those Who Prolong Their Lives.” The initiate attends these temples in the Astral body. During a ceremony here, he receives the Elixir of Long Life.

That gas remains preserved within the Vital Body. Thereafter, death has to be overcome in the ordeals of the Arcanum Thirteen, which are indeed terrifying. Very few human beings have enough courage to overcome them with success. The one who becomes victorious is warned that despite his victory, he still has to die. Indeed, he dies, but does not die, because on the third day after his death, the initiate approaches his tomb in the Astral body in order to summon his physical body.

The Spirit of Movement, the angels of death, and other hierarchies help him in his resurrection. Thus, the initiate’s physical body obeys, and when it rises from the sepulcher, it totally enters the supersensible worlds. Here, holy women massage the physical body with certain secret drugs, and the divine hierarchies infuse life and motion into it.

Subsequently, impelled by supreme powers, the physical body enters into the initiate through the pineal gland. In the Astral body, this gland is the one thousand-petalled lotus flower, the crown of the saints, the diamond eye. Thus, this is how the resurrection from the dead is performed.

All the masters who have resurrected live with their physical bodies for millions of years. After having resurrected from among the dead, Zanoni committed the error of taking a wife. This is why he lost his head at the guillotine during the French Revolution.

Only the initiates who have reached these summits can live and direct the current of life of the centuries. Only here the initiate no longer needs a spouse. The initiate’s physical body remains in Jinn state; this is the gift of Cupid.

Nevertheless, the initiate can become visible and tangible in this tridimensional world wherever is necessary, and works in the physical world under the commands of the White Lodge. As a Resurrected Master, the initiate commands the great life; he has power over the fire, air, water, and earth. Yes, all of Nature kneels before him and obeys him. He can live among men, and becomes a Man-God.

Naturally, it is indispensable to undergo the ordeals of the Arcanum Thirteen in order to reach these summits. The physical body must be embalmed for death. The supper at Bethany corresponds to this event of the Arcanum Thirteen. Thus, after the body has been embalmed for death, it is submitted to a special evolution for the tomb that develops within the numbers thirty and thirty-five, which when added together give the Arcanum Eleven (the tamed lion); yes, we have to tame nature and overcome it.

Thus, when the body is ready for the sepulcher, the processes of death and resurrection occur. In this case, the Angels of Death do not cut the silver cord; this is how the initiate dies but does not die. The physical brain of the initiate is submitted to a special transformation: it becomes more subtle, delicate, and radiant.

The supper at Bethany relates with these processes of Jesus Christ.

"Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always; for in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. Verily I say unto you, wherever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her." - Matthew, 26: 6-13

The mysteries of death are astounding. Jesus met the beloved goddess of death after having returned from Jordan into the solitude of the wilderness.

The goddess mother death is known among the Aztecs with the name of Mietlancihuati. She is the supreme commander of the angels of death. She is the only one who can liberate us from pain and bitterness.

Through death, she takes us out of this valley of tears millions of times, always filled with immense maternal love, full of charity, adorable, and good.

The three keys of suffering are: the Moon, the fornicating Eve, and the turbid waters. All of these belong to the horrible kingdom of “Santa Maria,” the abyss… [The author explains elsewhere that this person is not Mary the mother of Jesus].

The blessed Goddess Death is love and charity. The Aztecs represented her with a diadem of nine skulls. Nine is initiation.

Whosoever fulfills the Arcanum Thirteen becomes completely liberated. The blessed Goddess Death receives and gives; this is why she is represented with four hands.
