כ Kaf is the eleventh letter of the Kabbalistic alphabet.
Blessings are upon the head of the just but violence shall cover the mouth of the wicked - Proverbs 10:6
כ Kaf, the crown, symbolizes self-realization by means of willpower and faith.
כ Kaf symbolizes the latent power of the Holy Spirit (Binah) in the pineal gland that is fully manifested in the sexual organs of the initiate. The fire of Binah must create the Elohim, heaven and earth within the human being.
Book of Revelation 20:1-2 states:
And I saw an Angel come down from heaven having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand (Iod or Kaf). And he laid hold on the dragon that old serpent which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.
כ Kaf literally means “palm of the hand.” Do not mistake it with the palm tree. The letter כ Kaf is after the letter י Iod, which literally also means hand. י Iod means hand, while כ Kaf is the palm of that hand.
The shape of the letter כ Kaf resembles the letter ב Beth, the second letter of the Kabbalistic alphabet. The difference between the two is that the letter כ Kaf is made with one stroke that is a curve, while the letter ב Beth is made with two: the first is a horizontal line that curves down at its right and the second is a straight horizontal line at the bottom; thus, when you see the letter ב Beth you see one stroke that is descending on a base which is the horizontal line which extends a little bit to the right of the descending curved line. Despite Kaf being just one stroke, ב Beth and כ Kaf are related.
Let us remember that the first word of the Bible in the book of Genesis - as we have mentioned it in many lectures – is בראשית Beresheet, which as we have explained, is an anagram that relates to many things (דברים - words). So, today we are again going to explain Beresheet in relation with the letter כ Kaf.
To begin, the letter Kaf resembles the letter Beth, which is the first letter of the word בראשית Beresheet. The two last letters of the word are י Iod and ת Tav, together; those letters spell the word בית Beth, which in Hebrew means house. So בראשית is a word inside a word: within בית house (Beth, Iod, Tav) there are three other letters, namely Reish, Aleph, and Shin, which reads ראש Rosh and that in Hebrew means “head.”
Let us bear that in mind, because the head is related with כ Kaf, since the letter Kaf symbolizes the palm of God on top of the head, which symbolizes Adam. Yes, we always explain that the Biblical symbol Adam represents our brain, our head, while Chavah-Eve represents our sexual organs. Bear that in mind so that you can comprehend why Kaf is the first letter with which we write the word Kether, which means crown.
Kether is the first Sephirah of the Tree of Life. Kether is the Father. Kether is symbolized by the head. Kether is always the head of the first triangle that in Christianity is called Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; which in Kabbalah are Kether, Chokmah, Binah, the first triangle, which is related with the head.
The Sephirah Kether relates to a magnetic center (a spiritual “atom”) that we have in the head at the root of our nose.
The Sephirah Chokmah (the Son, the Christ) relates to the pituitary gland, located along the line that the nose points inwards towards the brain.
In the center of the brain is the pineal gland, where we find the spiritual atom of the Holy Spirit, Binah.
This is why the holy Tri-Unity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) is always represented in the head, which is “heaven” in our body. So, when you read “heaven” in the Bible, it is related with your head, microcosmically speaking.
The head is the word Rosh hidden in the middle of Beresheet “in the beginning.” Rosh is inside of Beth, “the house.” Thus, “Beresheet” means that the head is the house of the holy Tri-unity, the house of God.
The first phrase is אדם קדמון שני Adam Kadmon Shani (written at the top of the graphic). אדם קדמון Adam Kadmon means the primordial man. The word שני Shani relates to Saturn the Holy Spirit. Saturn is always related with Saturday, the seventh day. Saturday relates to Binah, the Holy Spirit, which is in the pineal gland, by means of which the Holy Spirit expresses itself, through the mysterious duality of Father-Mother. Father-Mother is the mystery of the Sephirah Daath, which is always beneath the first triangle of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Father-Mother in Hebrew is Abba-Aima. They relate to the fourth commandment:
Honor your father and your mother.
In Kabbalah we call them Abba Elohim and Aima Elohim. אלהים Elohim means “Gods and Goddesses.” It is a plural word, which means the two divine polarities. The masculine polarity is Abba, the Father, and the feminine is Aima, the Mother. That duality belongs to Saturn. This is why the word שני Shani (Shin Nun Iod in Hebrew) is written after Adam Kadmon, indicating that the expression of creation or that face is the Holy Spirit, the creator of life.
When we mention the head, visually, concretely we imagine the head of Binah, yet behind that head (inside) is Chokmah (the brain) and above that head is the crown, Kether, the Father. The crown Kether, the Father, is symbolized in all religions with a hat or a cap. That in Kabbalah in Hebrew is called kippah. This is another reason why the Jewish religious people cover their heads; however, you also find that kippah or hat among the Muslims.
The sacred cap or the hat is used in every religion. Related with Buddhism, depicted here is the 16th Karmapa (rest in peace, who I believe died in 1981). His hands form a mudra or sacred gesture in exactly the same shape as the Kaf. And of course he is wearing his sacred hat.
כיפה Kippah (hebrew for hat) begins with the letter Kaf, which means hand. The Kippah, hat, or turban, is utilized among the Sikhs, it is the hat of the pope and his cardinals. In Judaism you see that must of the orthodox Jews use the common ordinary black hat. But when they do not wear that hat, they wear a kippah. Likewise the Muslims, use a sacred head covering everyday, others only once in a while, when they go to the temple.
In synthesis, you find the sacred hat, cap or turban over the head of every religious people. Now, you might wonder “what is that symbol?” Kabbalistically, the letter Kaf symbolizes the cap or hat and the palm of the hand (Iod) of God; in other words, the cap is a remembrance or a means for you to remember God, because God in atomic form is in your head, willing to do His work, if you will allow it. Remember the prayer of the lord:
[May] Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” – Matthew 6:10
Here on earth we have to do the will of God as it is in heaven. Yet, in order to do his will we have to know how. ‘Thy will be done in earth’ is not a matter of believing in his will, but doing it. Kaf is related with willpower and faith, and also bliss, rapture, Samadhi, and all those experiences that the soul experiences when it leaves the physical body, through the head, while in Meditation. The three lines that through one stroke form the three aspects of the Kaf are:
- Samadhi, ecstasy, spiritual, religious bliss
The word faith in Greek is Pistis, which also relates with intellect, or the way in which we develop objective reasoning: illuminated, superior, spiritual intellect. The cap is a symbol of objective reasoning, because the skullcap or our skull is covering the mystery of the three primary forces.
עתיק יומין Atik Yomin or Atik Yamin is the second phrase, after Adam Kadmon Shani. In Aramaic, the root of Hebrew, Atik Yomin means “the ancient of days.”
On one side of the head of Atik Yomin, the ancient of days, we see the phrase Arik Anpin, which means the huge head or the huge countenance of God, symbolically. This is why the graphic displays a huge ancient of days above Daath, symbolizing what we are explaining in relation with the letter Kaf.
The letter כ Kaf is written in two ways. The other way ך is called final Kaf or Haf also because it is pronounced Kaf or Haf. Final Haf or Kaf means the way that you write the letter at the end of the word. If you write the letter Kaf in the beginning of the word or the middle of the word you write it as כ a half circle, the shape that we already explained. But at the very end of a word Kaf resembles the letter ד Daleth. This means that the head, which is the Kaf, is coming down in a straight line through the middle of the spinal column to Yesod. Such is the final shape of the letter. Kaf Final is pointing something very important to us. The letter Daleth with the man in the earth, the terrestrial man we would say, which is the poor man that needs wisdom. So the final Kaf (which resembles the letter Daleth) isindicating that the poor man (Daleth) is already doing the alchemical work with the Kaf; that is, his head is already wearing the Kippah, because he is doing the alchemical work down there in Yesod; this is why final Kaf resembles the letter Daleth, which indicates that such is not an ordinary person. When we see a person with the cap or the Kippah in any religion that is telling us that this man is putting God on his head, that is, he is always remembering God, and is always controlling his sexual energy because he resembles the Daleth, which as Final Kaf goes down to Yesod. He is not an ordinary person. He is somebody that transmutes the sexual energy to the head. He is somebody that knows about Alchemy, about the mysteries of Daath, such is the Kaf final symbol. Nevertheless, if you know what I mean, I am not stating that all of those people who use the Kippah and those hats and turbans do Alchemy, because most of them only follow traditions. But do they know the meaning of Daath? Maybe they do know Daath, which is what we are explaining here? Who knows? Maybe they do, but one thing is to know about it and another is to practice it.
Anyhow this is why the letter י Iod - which was very broadly explained in the previous lecture - is spelled with the letter Iod and Daleth. Why do we mention the letter Iod? It is because Iod in Hebrew means hand. Iod is the 10th letter, yet, now we are explaining Kaf the 11th which means palm which relates to the hand. Palm of the hand; so both letters relate to each other, as we are seeing here how, since Daleth relates to the word “Iod” and resembles Kaf final as well. So Kaf relates to the hands of (Daleth) the poor man and to the hands of God.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.- Matthew 5: 3
Now, how do you write Kaf in Hebrew? We write כף with the letter Kaf and the letter Peh or Pei final, at the end. The letter פ Pei also has a final form ף, since, in the Hebrew alphabet there are five letters that are final, namely: Kaf, Mem, Nun, Tzade and Peh, which are written differently at the end of the word. So, regarding the letter Pei we are going to talk about it in later lectures, yet, now we are just going to state that it also has a final form at the end of the word. Normally, Peh is like a curve with a tooth, which is a Iod. Yet Final Pei goes down to Yesod like the final Kaf.
Kaf relates to the hands and also to the soles of the feet. Do you realize its deepness now? Yes, Kaf relates to sole of the feet as it relates to the palm of the hand. Now you might realize why the lord Christ was crucified with nails in his hands and feet and why the Kaf or Kippah related to the crown of thorns was placed on his head. All of this relates with the letter Kaf, namely: Crown of thorns, Kaf; Nails in the Palm of his hands, Kaf; and Nails in the sole of his feet, Kaf; these are the stigmata stamped on the soul, the Kaf. So all of these stigmata, which we are pointing at form the famous pentagram; this is what you see on the pentagram, especially in this painting by Jophra. The stigmata on each hand and each foot and the crown, the Kippah or crown of thorns, symbolize the holy work. That's why the pentagram, which is the man with open arms and open legs is the symbol of the lord. That's the pentagram, the five pointed star. Related with Kaf. Bear in mind that this is a powerful symbol.
So, in Hebrew there is also another very interesting word; the letter Nun which symbolizes fish (the symbol of Christianity) and also the seed because the fish, the seed is the sperm and the ovum of the sexual energy. So if you place that Nun in between the letters of the word Kaf which means sole of the feet and palm of the hand, then we find the letters Kaf Nun and Peh, which reads Kanaph (כנף), which means wings; those wings of the angels or the wings of the birds that fly in heaven. Do you see now how these letters are pointing us to these words and to everything related whether to the angel's wings or related to the Nun, to the fish?
And Elohim created great crocodiles, and every living creature (Nun - Fish) that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged (כנף) fowl after his kind: and Elohim saw that it was good. – Genesis 1: 21
So, as Mercury, you have to place the Nun in the palm of your hands and in the soles of your feet and also in your head; remember also that at the very level of the lungs on the spinal column or caduceus of Mercury you have to develop the wings of the spirit, the wings of the angels,. All of these wings are related with the alchemical work that we must perform with our hands, with our feet and with our head.
The Vision of Ezekiel
The word of Iod-Havah came expressly unto Ezekiel (Strong God) the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans (chashadaim) by the river Chebar (already-Yesod); and the hand (יד) of Iod-Havah was there upon him.
And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire enfolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of Adam.
And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings (כנף).
And their feet were straight feet; and the sole (כף) of their feet was like the sole (כף) of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass.
And they had the hands (יד) of Adam under their wings (כנף) on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
Their wings (כנף) were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of Adam, and the face of a lion (Abraham), on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox (Isaac) on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle (Jacob).
Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings (כנף) of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. – Ezekiel 1: 3: 11
Here, Ezekiel is describing what we are explaining about the Kaf but who only those that are initiates understand. It begins as follows:
When I say this it came into my mind the 11th Arcanum of the Tarot which relates to the letter Kaf. Which is a Lion with the open mouth and the divine mother Kundalini, the woman, closing the jaws or the mouth of that lion with her hands, with the palm of her hands, this is very significant. The Arcanum 11th is called strength; this is what is called strength of God. In other words the strength in order to close jaws of the lion, which symbolizes the fire in each one of us, is in the hands of God. Only God can do that, the strength is symbolized by the divine mother because she symbolizes the divine feminine aspect that works in us in Malkuth. So the strong God is “Ezekiel” he is the strength of God - which in Hebrew is Ezekiel - that manifests through the hands of the Goddess that we are learning here, from her Kaf in other words.
Now “in the land of the Chaldeans,” when you read this, you remember that Chaldaea is that city that was between the Euphrates and the Tigris, the two rivers, which according to many Kabbalists is where Eden was situated; Kabbalistically of course that Eden is Yesod. Chaldeans in Hebrew is written in the following way: דימהשכ Kah-Shaddim. The word Kah Shaddim reminds us of Shaddai; Shaddim is plural of Shaddai. Shaddim in Hebrew means demons, spirits, ghosts, devils and also the force of God, Shaddai-El-Chai in Yesod. So what in the Bible is written or translated as Chaldeans in Hebrew is Kah Shaddaim, meaning, the strength of Spirits, forces because everything comes from the sexual energy of Shadah (the field of Yesod).
So, it is written that Ezekiel was there in that field. By the river Chebar, that river is the sexual force that flows from Tiphereth to Malkuth. That river is the sexual energy in Shadah, the field of Yesod. This is how you should read it. He was there by the river Chebar.
That reminds us that Abraham came from the city of the כשדימה Chaldeans. In other words he came from Yesod, from the city of Aur “Ur”, the light; because in Yesod we find the Ain Soph Aur, the power of God, the light of the absolute. We explained in a lecture that Abraham came from Chaldaea. When you read that Abraham came from the city of Ur of the Chaldeans, bear in mind that Chaldaea refers to Yesod, the ninth Sephirah. Thus, this is a teaching that Ezekiel is giving us here in order to learn how to handle the sexual force of Shaddai. This is why the God of Abraham was Shaddai-El-Chai, the sexual force.
And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north,
North in Kabbalah is related with Geburah and Binah above the left of the Tree of Life. Chesed is at the South, Geburah is at the North. The east is Tiphereth, the Sun, The west is in Malkuth. This is how you see the four cardinal points in the Tree of Life.
So when Ezekiel says that a whirlwind came from the north, he is pointing us that the Ruach (spirit in Hebrew) of life came from Geburah, and from Binah. In other words Binah, the atom of the Holy Spirit is in the pineal gland, thus, in the physical body the north is the head; so Ezekiel is telling us: from my head came that Ruach, that wind, from the river Chebar because Chebar (כבר) is the river going down from the Kaf, the Kippah of the Beth (house) of the Reish (Head) to Yesod. Thus, the whirlwind came from the Kaf.
A great cloud and a fire enfolding itself, and brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
The amber is always the union of the three primary colors, namely, Blue, Yellow and Red. Blue for the father, Yellow for the sun and Red for the Holy Spirit, that is the amber.
Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of Adam.
In this painting of William Blake you see the four living creatures, which are standing, in it you see a man that is standing with four faces and above it is the ancient of days. These are the creatures of Ezekiel. They had the likeness of Adam, of Adam Kadmon, which in Kabbalah expresses itself as the living likeness of the man above. Abraham Chesed symbolizes the lion of Ezekiel, which in man is that part that symbolizes the spirit, the higher part of Adam. Isaac Geburah symbolizes the ox or the bull, which is the divine soul of Adam. And the eagle symbolizes Tiphereth, which according to Ezekiel is in the center, which is the human soul of Adam; thus, the real Adam, created by God is Chesed, Geburah and Tiphereth. And down below in Yesod-Malkuth is the terrestrial Adam, which is the fourth creature. The four creatures are the lion, the ox, the eagle and the man. But all of them have the face of Adam because all of them are the symbol of Adam.
And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings (כנף).
Every one of them has four faces and everyone has four wings because everyone relates to the other. Abraham relates to Isaac, and they as Chesed and Geburah relate to Tiphereth, Jacob; and down in Yesod-Malkuth is the man which we can symbolize by Moses. Everyone relates to each other. When we said lion, ox and eagle they are just the symbol of the three patriarchs, Abraham Isaac and Jacob. They are the livings, who have to be inside of us in order for us to become the true Adam. And of course everyone has four wings. Behold the word “wing” which we pointed here (כנף) Kaf, Nun, Pei, means wing in Kabbalah.
And their feet were straight feet; and the sole (כף) of their feet was like the sole (כף) of a calf's foot:
Calf resembles the word Kaf.
So again, “their feet have their sole (Kaf in Hebrew) like the sole of a calf’s foot. In other words, this “Kaf” is the sole on the feet of the ox. Because the feet symbolizes Malkuth, the terrestrial man, which according to Kabbalah, descends from the left side of the Tree of Life, this is, from Binah to Geburah then to Tiphereth to Netzach, Yesod and finally Malkuth; thus, it descends from the left. And in the left of the Tree of Life we have the ox. This is why it is stated in Ezekiel that his feet were the feet of a Calf. The feet of a calf symbolize Nefesh, the animal soul in us that we have to use in order to create the man inside. The calf's foot, Nefesh, the animal soul, is symbolized by the letter Nun, which is the sperm and the ovum. The animal soul contains the brute mercury, which all of us have, and that we need to transmute. This is the mystery of the letter 11, Kaf, Transmutation, the 11th commandment which is for the initiates that know the mystery of it, which is: “Thou shalt perform thy duty.” As also we state: “Do what thou wilt, this shall be the whole of the law.” To enter into initiation is “to do what thou wilt.” That's the beginning. This is why when you enter into initiation you read: “do what thou wilt. This is the only law or the whole of the law but remember that you have to answer for all of your deeds.”
Thou shalt perform thy duty
Who is the one who is “thou” of “Do what thou wilt?” Listen, that “thou” is not us. That “thou” is the Ruach Elohim; it is our own Spirit, our own Chesed. Yes. Chesed is that “thou” of “Do what thou wilt.”
“Do what thou wilt” means that we as Nefesh, the animal soul must do what “Thou” wilt; in other words, You Nefesh, animal soul, do what thou (Chesed) wilt; Do what your Chesed wants to do, what your spirit wants to do; which points to the letter Kaf.
We have to do the will of God because we have two wills, namely, the will of the terrestrial man which is self-will; and the will of God that we have to unite with our will. Thus, that is the symbol of Ezekiel related with the “Kaf” of the foot, or the sole of a calf's foot.
And they sparkled like the color of burnished brass [remember that the sparkly brass, is the union of two metals, man and woman (copper and zinc). This is the only way that those feet can be burnished like brass]. And they had the hands [the Iod] of Adam under their wings (כנף) [it refers to the four winds under their wings] on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings (כנף).
Indeed we have to develop those bodies inside of us which are one in us. Ezekiel is talking about the man. People think that Ezekiel is talking about certain cosmic ships. Some ignoramuses translate Ezekiel’s vision like that. But no, Ezekiel is talking about the man; because the man has seven bodies. Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, Malkuth. Yet the main creatures are related with the second triangle, Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth and with Malkuth which is the terrestrial man. This is why Ezekiel states that each one has their own wings and their own faces. All of that develops inside of us.
Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces (we already talked about that), they four had the face of Adam, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle (in the middle). Thus were their faces: and their wings (כנף) were stretched upward; two wings (כנף) of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. Ezekiel 1: 3-11
This movement of wings, in Gnosticism, in simple terms is a seal which we teach people to do in order to move Christic energies; the seal that we do is a protection against Klipothic forces; the mystery of the seal of the Pentagrammaton or the microcosmic star.
First you open your arms and your legs. This, in order to point the five stigmata, namely, the feet, the hands and the head; thereafter, you extend your wings, Christic energies which are beneath your hands - that you collect when you are doing the alchemical work - up to the top of your head, joining them, by touching the tip of your fingers, that is what Ezekiel says: “Their wings were joined one to another.” on the top of your head, thus forming your Kippah. This means that Chesed and Geburah, in your hands are joined to the first triangle in order to do the will of God - Kether, Chokmah and Binah - from your Kippah, above your head, your hat; the first Kaf.
Thereafter, again you move Geburah and Chesed by placing you hands on your shoulders, which are aligned with your throat, where you find Father and Mother in Daath. The will from above - Kether, Chokmah and Binah – “they turned not when they went” descending on our shoulders, Abba and Aima, Father and Mother. Then, “they went every one straight forward,” you extend your wings again at the level of Chesed and Geburah “and their wings were stretched upward.” This movement is telling us that what we are asking, which is, to send the protection from heaven unto us, is done through Chesed and Geburah, since your hands are related with Ida and Pingala, the two polarities that cross in Yesod, your sex. For “two wings of every one were joined one to another” in Yesod, thus, you descend your hands and cross them on top your sexual organs, Yesod, do you get that? You have to cross your hands (Iods) because the forces of God that are coming from above will be crossed in the sexual act with Chastity. Ordinary people cross them through Fornication.
Listen, this is why we must not leave the crossed hands in the sex because that means that you are pointing or sending the creative energies of God down to Klipoth. Do you realize that? When you leave your hands crossed over your Yesod, over your sex that means that you are fornicating. That means that you are expelling God’s energy from your body, not only through the orgasm, but also through the action of your evil-will, which could be activated in many ways. Remember that the 11th commandment: “Thou shalt perform thy duty.” teaches us that our duty is to do the will of God: “Do what thou wilt.”
At this time, it is appropriate to remember that the tablets of Law, wherein Moses inscribed by order of Iod-Havah the brilliant precepts of the Decalogue, are nothing but a double spear of Runes, the phallic significance of which we must meditate upon profoundly. Love is the fiat lux of the Book of Moses, the great cosmic sexual desideratum, the Divine Law for all continents, seas, worlds and spaces…
The eleventh has its classical expression in the Sanskrit Dharman Chara, “Thou shalt perform thy duty.”
Remember, beloved reader, that it is your duty to quest for the strait, narrow, and difficult path, which leads unto light.So, the Arcanum 11 of the Tarot reveals this duty: the marvelous strength that can dominate and hold back lions of adversity is essentially spiritual. For this reason, this Arcanum is represented by a beautiful woman who, without any visible effort, opens the terrible gullet of Leo, the terrifying puma, the furious lion with her lovely hands. – Samael Aun Weor
So, in order to do the will of God we place the two forces from our sex in our heart (Tiphereth – the Son of Man), that is, “and two covered their bodies.” Like the mummies of Egypt or as the Karmapa of Tibet is showing us in the picture. That is, we elevate the crossing hands, Ida and Pingala, from our sex to our heart. Thus, this is how the mysterious Pentagram is performed. That symbolizes the true man.
So, you have to raise your Ida and Pingala energies. If you do not raise your hands from Yesod to Tiphereth that means that you are not doing the will of God but your own selfish will. There are many Gnostics that do this sign and they end it with the hands on Yesod. By doing that they are saying: 'I am doing my selfish will, I am fornicating.' or 'I am doing treason against my heart.' 'I am not doing the will of God.' Because, as you alchemically know, in order to do the will of God you have to raise the two polarities Ida and Pingala united in the sex, up to your chest, Tiphereth, the body of willpower in the fifth initiation of Major Mysteries. “And two (the two witnesses) covered their –solar – bodies.” Thus, that is the end of the sign of the microcosmic star that Ezekiel teaches.
Ezekiel says: “Their wings were joined one to another (on top of the head);” “they turned not when they went (on top of the shoulders);” “they went every one straight forward” (when we stretch our arms again.)” “And (when) their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another (on your sexual organs, when you descend your hands to Yesod).” “And two covered their bodies” two wings were covering the solar bodies. That is, you rise up Ida and Pingala in order to do the will of God with your two hands, thus, from your sex you are protecting your solar bodies.
Of course that chapter of Ezekiel is teaching us other things, i.e. wheels, four wheels that were around the creatures. The four wheels are related to the Four Worlds of Kabbalah. But we are not going to talk about that now, let us just mention them: Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah and Assiah. And rings full of eyes round about them four, etc., which relate to the work that we do in transmutation in order to strengthen the chakras.
Thus, by doing the seal of the pentagram is how we protect ourselves. The mystery of the Pentagram is one of the great mysteries that now we are unveiling, now everybody has it. So, you have to know that when you are doing this microcosmic star what you are doing is sealing yourself with energy. But you have to know why.
In this painting by William Blake we see the Ruach Elohim which has his right hand over the head of Adam, the terrestrial man, who has a serpent entwined in his left leg.
And the Spirit of God hovered (in the beginning) upon the face of the waters. - Genesis 1: 2
The spirit of God is controlling the creative waters of the sexual organs. That spirit is in the Kaf, up there in the Pineal gland where we have the atom of Holy Spirit that controls the waters of sexuality down there in the sexual organs.
On the side of Greek Mythology, the one who made the man was Prometheus; he made him with clay, with his hands. This Prometheus is the sexual fire. Prometheus is Lucifer. Bear in mind that above in the head, in the Pineal gland is the Holy Spirit yet down here in Yesod we find the opposite aspect of the Holy Spirit, which is Lucifer descending from the head to the sex. Thus, Lucifer is the sexual strength that - according to Greek mythology - made the man. Yes because the man comes from Yesod, from the sexual strength. This is why Prometheus has the fire of the sun, the fire of God in his hand. Behind Prometheus is Athena, the Divine Mother, because she also intervenes in the creation of man, according to Greek mythology. Both relate to the divine creative force.
Why? Because above in the pineal gland is the father, Binah, the Holy Sprit, yet, below here, in Yesod-Malkuth, is the Divine Mother Kundalini. Aima Elohim, that assists Lucifer in the making of the man -if that man does not fall into temptation - because Prometheus-Lucifer works through the sexual act. If you cross your hands over your sex that means that you are now working with Lucifer. But you have to overcome temptation by elevating your crossing hands towards your heart, that is, by doing the will of God. Because if you live them there that means that you are a slave of Lucifer in many ways. In other words, you are betraying the light of God by sending the light of God down to Klipoth, which is hell.
This is why you find that 'Do what thou wilt.' is precisely the prayer that you have to do in the beginning when, understanding that Kaf represents Kether the crown, that contains that mantra that you have to pronounce in order to do the will of God and that was taught to Moses. Remember that Moses symbolizes the man in Yesod-Malkuth, who rises to Daath, where Abba and Aima abide. And there in Daath is where Moses heard, for the first time, that mysterious Kabbalistic mantra Eheieh Asher Eheieh, which the Bible translates as 'I am what I am.'
When you understand that God is “Eheieh” he who is above the Kippah, then, when you want to do the will of God inside yourself, you said “Asher Eheieh” within you. Yet, comprehend that “Asher Eheieh” within you is your Ruach Elohim, not your ego because your ego is self-willed. The ego does not do the will of God. Only the Ruach Elohim is the one who does it, and he is inside of you precisely hovering on the waters of the beginning of creation.
This is why when you say: “Eheieh Asher Eheieh,” comprehend that it is a mantra in order to remember God; like if we were wearing the Kippah. Eheieh is “he who is.” And this is why God, Kether, told Moses: “Eheieh Asher Eheieh: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, “Eheieh” hath sent me unto you.” – Exodus 3: 14; God also said: “Certainly (אהיה) “I will be” with thee.” “Eheieh Asher Eheieh,” (אהיה אשר אהיה) means he who is will be what he will be.
So when you are doing “Eheieh Asher Eheieh or pronouncing“Eheieh Asher Eheieh in your daily life, you must say: Eheieh; when you remember Kether the father of all the lights, there, in heaven. “Asher” is the Holy Spirit. Asher is your head. Why? Because Asher is written with the letter Reish of Beresheet, remember that we said that “Bet Iod and Tav,” are the three letters that spells “Bet” which means house and Rosh means head (Reish Aleph and Shin). Now, the word Asher is written with Aleph, Shin and Reish, which is Head “Rash” backwards, because the word Rosh is Head, so backwards is Asher. Thus “Asher” is pointing to your head; it is pointing to the Holy Spirit, which in the pineal gland is the manifestation of the Holy Trinity in you, in your head. “Asher” means that you “will be” according to your head - if your Head control your sex; because if your sex controls your head, then Asher is not doing the alchemical work.
Eheieh Asher Eheieh. “Be what thou will be of Ketheriel”, 'you are my God’s crown, your will above. So, let your will be one with mine,' that is “Asher Eheieh,” in order for you to be “Eheieh,” what you are, in me.
And after that you say: Hallelu-Jah, because “Jah” is precisely the force of Eheieh above. Eheieh Asher Eheieh (אהיה אשר אהיה)is a beautiful mantra but you have to know how to pronounce it when you want to receive the power of your God; in order to remember yourself pronounce it mentally in your daily work. But know what you are pronouncing. Don't do it mechanically. If you say Eheieh you have to remember he who is; and he is God.
This is a Holy Tetragrammaton, because Eheieh is written with Aleph, Hei, Iod, Hei (אהיה), this is how you write Eheieh. As we know, Asher Eheieh is you, the Vav. Because that will is done in your spinal column, through your spinal column which is symbolized by the letter Vav.
This is why the 11th commandment is related with man and woman. The number is the 1 the other number 1 is the woman, 11. This is why the master Samael states that the 11th commandment of Moses is a double spear of runes. That double spear of runes is Isis; two I's. That Kabbalistically we simplify with the Vav, which is the man and with the Zayin, which is the woman; which form the letter “Chet” meaning Chai, life. This is why there are 10 commandments. 5 related to the man and 5 related to the woman and this is why we have two hands, with 10 fingers; 5 on each one, because we have the two polarities. But when the woman and the man are in the sexual act then we have twenty fingers. 20 is the numeral value of the letter Kaf. Two Iods together. Becuase the letter Iod is 10. But 10+10 is 20, the letter Kaf.
Thus, the two 10s have to be joined in sex. That is the mystery of the creation of man; because the man has to be created by the hands (Iods) of God. Thus, God has two hands. But when the man and the woman are united in the sex, they are one hand; because they become one androgynous being. This is why the 11th commandment is: “Do what thou wilt.” This is the only law. And remember that you have to answer for all your deeds. This, precisely, is the mystery of the letter Kaf.
When you take the letter Vav from the sacred word (יהוה) Iod, Hei, Vav Hei, which is the sacred name of God, then you remain only with the letters (היה) Hei Iod and Hei, “Heieh,” which means “to be.” This is why you write “Eheieh” “I am” with (אהיה) “Aleph, Hei, Iod, Hei.” But only “Heieh” without Aleph, means “to be, or to become.” So this “Heieh,” is Kether, the Father, “who is.” And when “Heieh,” is united to the letter Vav, which in you is your spinal column, then we have “Iod Hei Vav Hei,” the name of God within you; which is also the Mystery of the Letter Kaf. Why? Because (היה) Iod Hei and Hei is “Heieh,” Iod has the value of 10 and Hei has the value of 5 plus Hei another 5, thus adding 20. And 20 is the value of the letter Kaf, which represents “Heieh,” Kether above your head. And the letter Vav below is your spinal column, which is 6, which adds 26, which is the number of the sacred name of God (יהוה) “Iod Hei Vav Hei”.
Thus, by uniting the Kaf of your head, Kether, with the spinal column, through your Chastity you have then 26, because the value of Kaf is 20 and the Vav is 6, 26. Behold the mystery of the letter Kaf; that is when you work with Eheieh Asher Eheieh within you, in your head. That is the other anagram that you see in “Beresheet” Beth the house and Rosh the head. Remember that Rosh backwards is Asher and that Asher relates to your head when doing the will of God.
Eheieh Asher Eheieh relates to the prayer of Zarathustra, a beautiful prayer that we should also read. It is a beautiful prayer of the Zoroastrian creed that also know about the mysteries of the letter Kaf.
The Zoroastrian creed states:
Do what thy God wilt Fully will; I adjust my will to thy will, Ahura Mazda
Let me will what thou willest me to will. Work thy will in me. I will accept thy will as law and submit to it. My lip-loyalty to thee does not mean anything. It counts for nothing. Doing thy will, living according to thy will, is everything. I will do all that thou wiliest me to do. I will keep thy commandments with all my will. I will conform my life to thy will. Every day in my life, I will do what is pleasing to thee and refrain from doing what is displeasing to thee. Help me to restrain my self-will.
Infallible is thy divine will. What thou dost win is always good, for thou, the Sovereign Lord of mankind without a second, art All-good thyself. Thou wert the same yesterday. Thou art the same to-day and thou will be the same for ever. The creation came into being with thy will. I see thy designing will and ordaining hand in everything.
Things always come about as thou dost will. What thou doest is always the best in the end. Thou dost work thy will upon me. Do unto me as thou willest. Inflame my will with love for thee. I will do all that thou willest me to do. Let me see the right, let me understand the right and let me have the will to do the right.
With my hands uplifted, my head bent low, I will sink on my knees and bow to thy will. I will think and speak and do as thou wouldst have me to do. Enlighten me with thy will, that I may make it known all around me.
My life is built around thee. Let thy will dominate my will. I will not live my life as I will, but as thou dost will. Faithfully will I comply with thy will. Let thy will govern my will. Let my will be merged in thy will and become one with it. With the fullness of my heart I will always do thy will, Ahura Mazda.
So as you read that is a beautiful prayer from Zarathustra, who is that great master, founder of Zoroastrianism, which lived at the time of Buddha, many years before Jesus. Now, that I am naming Jesus, it comes into my mind that wonderful prayer which relates to the seven words, which he pronounced on the cross. Let us see, he is on the cross already with the stigmata, the crown of thorns and the nails - which are represented in the Iods or the Vavs - in each hand and in his feet. “And he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.” Do you remember that phrase, when he is on the cross?
When Jesus is talking to the Father he looks at the top of his head, which is Kether, He is talking to the father. “Father into thy hands', which are the Kaf because the Father is the one who is doing the alchemical work from above; “I commend my spirit”, what spirit is he talking about? It is the Ruach because the work on the cross is the transmutation done by the Ruach Elohim, who from the Pineal gland is doing it in Yesod, in the sex. So, when we are doing the alchemical work, we have to remember that Jesus said 'Father', so, remember God, 'into thy hands', which are above in the Kippah, 'I command my spirit', the Ruach Elohim. “And having said thus,” says the Gospel, “he gave up the Ghost.” What ghost? Seeing with Alchemical eyes, that ghost is the Holy Ghost rising from Yesod to the skull, to the mount of the skull, to the pineal gland. By saying this is how we have to give up the Ghost, TO GIVE UP means to transmute it. But you are the one that have to say: “Father into thy hands I commend my spirit,” which means that you have to do his will by transmuting the libido.
When people hear this saying they think that “the Father” relates to some God there in heaven, in the clouds, and that when Jesus is dying his spirit is going there, with his Father. Yes, it also relates to that, but here, in our bodies, since we are talking about the letter Kaf, understand that the hands of God are in your head, in your pineal gland, there is the father, Abba Elohim, which is the father of Jesus or Tiphereth united with the Lord Chokmah. This Abba Elohim is the one who does the alchemical work with his hands in every initiate. So every initiate, when he is in the sexual act, he says: ' Father into thy hands I commend my spirit.'
The letter Kaf is related with the 18 prayers of the Amidah. Amidah in Hebrew means standing.
You might remember seeing the Orthodox Jews swaying their body back and forth during prayer. Some of them are praying the prayer of Amidah which means standing, praying while standing. That is pointing us at the letter Vav, the spinal column. 18 reminds us of the letters “Chet and Iod”. Because life is written with Chet which is number 8 and Iod which is number 10. Chai (Chet, Iod) means Life. The letter Chet is made by two letters Vav and Zain, man and woman in the sexual act. This means that when the man and the woman are in the sexual act you see the man moving back and forth, back and forth because it is the man that does that movement in the sexual act.
The 18 prayers are related with the number 9 two times, because Yesod is the number nine. The woman is one nine and the other nine is the man. Both make 18 which is life Chai (Chet, Iod). And 1+8 = 9, which is the number of the mystery of the making of Adam. This is how God created Adam.
Now, through sexual Alchemy, we are putting the fundamental principles of (ראשיתב) “Beresheet” - which means in the beginning - in the head “Rosh” (ראש) as the house “Bet” (תיב) of the Holy Spirit above in the pineal gland, in order to make Elohim, the heavens and the earth, inside of us. That is the other meaning of “Beresheet Bera Elohim At Ha-Schamayim At Ve-Ha-Aretz” which are the first words in Hebrew in the Bible, which are translated as, In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth. But in this case the translation should be: “The house of the Holy Spirit, the head, created Elohim the Heavens and the Earth.” This means that if we put on our head the will of God Eheieh (אֶֽהְיֶה) Kether, and if we trust in Eheieh (אֶֽהְיֶה) Kether, the will of God, and if that will - through Binah, יהוה Elohim, which is “Asher” (אֲשֶׁר) the Holy Spirit within our head - uses the Nefesh (the animal force) which is in our sex, then, (ראשיתב) “Beresheet” will create an Elohim inside of us. The Ruach Elohim is the force of the Holy Spirit, who - through our sexual waters - has to create an Elohim the Heavens and the Earth in us; which is what the serpent said to Eve:
For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof (as an Elohim), then your eyes (in your head) shall be opened, and ye shall be like Elohim, knowing good and evil. - Genesis 3: 5
When you read in the Hebrew Bible “Like Elohim” you read (כאלהים) the word “Like” is just the letter Kaf, which could be “similar, as, like” and thereafter the word Elohim. Do you want to see? Well, “in the day you eat of that fruit (as an Elohim), then your eyes (in your head) shall be opened, and you will be “Kaf,” like Elohim. That Kaf is the first letter before Elohim; this means that you have to obey the will of God in order for that God to make an Elohim within you. When the serpent says “like,” this does not mean another God, since “Like” means similar to. Because God is always God and God knows Good and Evil, but we do not know Good and Evil. But when we know good and evil, the good from the evil and the evil from the good then we will be “like Elohim” and not another Elohim because God is always above Adam. But Adam in itself must be “like Elohim,” knowing good and evil.
And God said, Let us make Adam in our image, after our likeness”. Genesis 1: 26
When pointing at the letter Kaf, the serpent meant the will of his God. The serpent meant to say, follow the will of God by touching the fruit, because the prohibition of God is to eat it, not to touch it. You can touch the Tree of Life. Remember that we said that touch is related with the sexual organ. The eyes with the lion, the ears with the ox, the smell with the eagle, the speech with the man are the four senses, and touch is the fifth. So if you eat it, you commit a sin, but if you touch it, you do not commit a sin because the prohibition is: “thou shalt not eat of it,” and not “thou shalt not touch it.”
Now, how do you touch that tree of good and evil? The tree is touched when the man penetrate the woman in the sexual act, they then are touching it, because the sexual organ relates to the sense of touch. The sexual organ is the most sensitive organ of the sense of touch. Thus, in the very sexual act, which is on the cross, is when you are to say: 'Father, into your hands I commend my Ruach Elohim, the spirit, which is hovering above my creative waters in my sexual organs.' For this, we have to die in our lust; for this we have to die on the cross. All of the defects that we have must die on the cross, in order to give up the Ruach Elohim, in order to give up the Ghost, in order for the Holy Ghost to go up to the skull. “And he gave up the ghost.” This is how we are to resurrect, there is no other way, remember that.
The problem is that when the man and the woman, the one and the one (11) are united in sex, they do not do the will of God.
The first commandment for the initiate is the first commandment when you enter into initiation, which is when God, which is the Holy Spirit, symbolized by the priest says to the couple (11): 'Do what thou wilt.' That is the first sentence; the 11th commandment is for the “couple,” for the copulation, the 1 and 1 joined together. Do what is thy duty. And how do you do the 11th commandment? You do it in the sexual act. When the ordinary man and the woman do sex they spill the will of God, they eat of the tree of Good and Evil, which is the sexual force, as beasts. To eat of the tree of Good and Evil, means to spill the will of God, to reach the orgasm, the spasm. But the initiates only touch that tree, in other words, they do not spill the seed, they do not reach the orgasm of the beasts, they only touch it. Thus, the initiates are accomplishing with the law of God, when transmuting their seed; they do “Beresheet” through the head of Asher, the Holy Spirit, who creates a likeness of Elohim, Heaven and Earth within them.
Because the micro-cosmos, man, is a small cosmos. Adam is the micro-cosmos of the Macro-cosmos; the Macro is God and we are the Micro, we have to reflect God. So we have to have Heaven and Earth inside of us and the likeness of Elohim as well. This is why the serpent said: “In the day that you eat of it in the way that God eats it - with Chastity - then you will be like Elohim, knowing good and evil.” So the woman saw that the tree was good for food, But she did not eat it “like Elohim,” she just fornicated with her husband, thus instead of creating an Elohim they created Kain. They created devils, demons, the seven capital sins when sending the force of God into Klipoth. Thus, this is precisely our damnation, because we are now in hell.
Do not think, “Oh if I die, if I am bad, I am going to hell; listen, we are in hell.” This is why we have to create a heaven inside of us. The essence (embryo of soul) is already created but unfortunately is trapped within the ego that we created in Fornication.
Thus, we have to create a new life, a new creature inside. And that is only possible with Kaf, when Eheieh Asher Eheieh is protecting us.
So, you see how all Hebrew letters relate to each other, one letter to each other. We explained them, thus, if you don't know the Hebrew alphabet how are you going to understand what is written in the bible? Remember that the serpent said: (כאלהים) 'You will be like Elohim'; the serpent did not say that you will be another Elohim, No! The God within you is the Elohim, Abba Elohim and Aima Elohim, both of them. When Abba Elohim and Aima Elohim are united above, it is because we as Adam and Eve are united here below. When the man and the woman are united in the sexual act they form the likeness of Elohim below as the Elohim who is above.
The problem of Eve and Adam below is that they took the wife of God without his permission. The wife of God is Yesod-Malkuth, the sexual organ. The sexual organ is Chavah, the mother, and in the pineal gland we have Jah, the father. Eheieh is Hallelu-Jah the father in the pineal gland, yet, Chavah is the Mother of the living in the sexual organs.
When Adam and Eve used their Chavah their sexual organs, by themselves, without taking care of the will of God “Jah” in their heads, they then prostituted their sexual organs, the wife of Jah, because “Eheieh” the will of God was not with them. This is why when “Jah” God as the father came, he said unto Adam, “Where art thou?” - Genesis 3: 9
Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? – Genesis 3: 11
Meaning: “Oh! You took from my tree because this is my tree with whom I have made the universe, yes, I did the universe with it; yet, you wanted to create within you somebody like me but without my will; so therefore, now you are kicked out of here, because you could not control my wife, the sexual force. You committed incest, because if you want to use my sexual force I have to be present.” This is why the male initiate says: “If God wants me, I will take this woman” or if it is a woman initiate, she says: “If God wants me, I will take this man', in holy matrimony because God has to be present in the sexual act with them.
But are the couples united in holy matrimony with God in their sexual act? Do they remember the last words of Jesus: 'Father into thy hands I commend my spirit'? No! They do not remember that. They do not even remember the “G” of God. They are doing their own lustful will. So, they are prostituting the tree of good and evil, the Tree of Knowledge. They are creating demons with it when satisfying their lust.
The clue in order not to fornicate is: when you are in the sexual act, which symbolizes the 18 prayers of Amidah, “standing,” meaning 1 and 1 praying to God when you are in the sexual act in the ninth sphere, Yesod, you must remember “Jah”. And then you say Eheieh Asher Eheieh because you want your God to transmute your sexual energy in order to create the likeness of Elohim within you, who will be “Like Elohim” knowing good and evil.
But just by yourself without the presence of God, you cannot do it; this is why we say: “Whosoever respects the Elohim is the one who wants to create the likeness of Elohim within.” But the demons that we created already, because we fornicated, must be eliminated, thus, we have to die, this is why it is written that now, in the level in which we are, we have to die on the cross. Thus, that cross is made with two ones, the first one is the vertical line, the man; the second one is the horizontal line, the woman; they make the 11. Yes, this is how you make the cross, the man and woman, the 11th commandment.
If you are not, in the sexual act transmuting the sexual energy you are not performing the will of God. 'Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.' That is the mystery of the 11th commandment.
Faith is in the pineal gland. Faith is pistis. Faith emerges from beneath, from the transmutation in Yesod. Faith is direct experience of the will of God. Through Chastity is how you develop your willpower, Thelema.
Questions and Answers
Audience: Can you explain the stigmata?
Instructor: The stigmata are the signs in your hands and in your feet and in your head, signs that show that you are reaching Chastity. The stigmata relate to Chastity. We have to reach Chastity in all our seven bodies; meaning in the 49 levels of the mind. Remember, Kaf is to remember God with the head, in order to do his will with the palm of the hands and in order to walk on the soles of our feet. The Holy Spirit is the one who will do the work. So for the stigmata to appear on the hands and on the feet and the head, you have to completely perform the will of God, through the cross; because nobody can do the stigmata without the cross, which means man and woman united in the sexual act.
Audience: What about those people who appear physically in TV showing the stigmata?
Instructor: Yes, there are many, or as you said, some people that appear in TV showing the stigmata. Yet, this might be related with some other phenomena. Because when I saw the stigmata on the Master Samael Aun Weor, I saw that he was not bleeding at all. Because the stigmata are in the Vital Body, Astral body, Mental body, as signs of Chastity. It might appear like bleeding, right, but really the stigmata are a sign of sexual transmutation, Chastity. And in order to receive them you have to eliminate your lust completely. There are other people that appear with the stigmata in their hands and feet, these might be related with something else, but not with what we are explaining here. Our goal is to have those stigmata in our solar bodies, in our internal bodies. We do not care if other people physically show them; because sometimes those stigmata are signs related with other phenomena.
Audience: What is the name of the scripture or scriptures that Zoroaster wrote?
Instructor: Well it's called 'The will', 'The will of God'. I don't remember which scripture but it's there in the scriptures of Zarathustra.
Audience: What is the difference between the mantras Eheieh Asher Eheieh and Hallelujah?
Instructor: When you say Eheieh, it refers to Kether which is 'he who is' or in other words, “he is.” Now, Kether is 'Jah'. Jah is the father. And this is why I said you have to also remember God with Hallelujah which means praise Jah. And that Jah is Eheieh, Kether. Eheieh, Hallelujah. So when you say Hallelujah you are pointing directly to your head, to Kether, to the crown because he is the one that deserves the praises. That's why the praise in Kabbalah Hallelujah means 'praise Jah'. But you have to remember that “Jah” is here in the head. Jah also represents the father and mother, Iod and Hei, father and mother inside. Honor your father and mother, Hallelujah, your father and mother who are Jah. That's why it is written 'you shall not have any other Elohim before me' that is a commandment for you, because you have your own Elohim, your own inner being inside, Hallelujah. You have to praise him. And this is why you say Eheieh. But in order for that will of God to come into you, you use “Asher,” which is the Holy Spirit in your “Rash” head, which is the other Eheieh in you, in your head.
Eheieh Asher Eheieh is a sentence, an Alchemical sentence when you have to do the will of God within you through the 11th commandment, which is the only way for God to do the will in you, in order to make Adam into his own image and likeness. When God was making Adam into his own image and likeness God was using his hands, his Kafs, his Iods, right? Through the Kaf is how God as Prometheus molded the clay of the Earth, which means the Alchemical work.
Now, during the whole day when we are walking the streets we want to bring the will of God within us. Then we say Eheieh Asher Eheieh immediately we unite the Father above within the work that we are doing below. Through the head Asher or the Rash, the head, because in the head we have the three potencies, three powers, Father Son and Holy Spirit, that's why in the Pineal gland is where you have to remember God. Asher, Rash, there in Beresheet. I want to make the creation of Adam within me but I remember that God is the one who makes Adam. Not us.
This is why those people who say, 'I am this of that master or this God, etc.', they are committing a blasphemy because God is God. We are just the servants of the Lord, vehicles of the Lord. We are somebody that is a mailman, delivering a message but God is God and if we follow his will he will make somebody like Elohim; according to his will, which is beyond good and evil. So that is the difference between those mantras. In the prayer of Solomon after you say Eheieh Asher Eheieh, you say Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah this in order to remember that the one who deserves the praises is God. Not anybody here. Yes, we have to respect the Masters. But the one that deserves to be worshiped is your God. Don't forget that. Otherwise you are sending your will out of you. Your will has to be sent within you. This is what Jesus says, 'Father if it's possible take this chalice of bitterness out of me but not my will but thine be done.'. That is the prayer that we have to do inside.
Audience: How do you relate this lecture with Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey?
Instructor: Well, it is obvious that the heavenly Jerusalem is in the head, as we are explaining, the Kaf, the will of God, is here on the head; but unfortunately in the brain we also have the animal mind and that is the problem. The brain the physical brain is the vehicle of the mind and the mind is the Donkey. The mind is that mule that we have to tame. And we tame it with the cross. Jesus entered into Jerusalem on a Palm Sunday, you see even the word Palm, relates with the palm of the hand. Palm Sunday, meaning that he is controlling his own mind with his own hands, because in order to dominate the mind you have to have willpower; as you remember Jesus was holding a whip in his hand. And that whip is the symbol of willpower that we need in order to control our mind because our mind is precisely Cain, the one that we created when we fornicated. So we have to kill Cain 7 times 7, 49 times, in order to enter into the heavenly Jerusalem. This is why we have to die on the cross.
Likewise, behold the temple of Jerusalem is also the symbol of the physical body because the physical body is the temple of God, the temple of the Holy Spirit. “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” – 1 Corinthians 6: 19
And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; and said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
Jesus answered and said unto them, destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spoke of the temple of his body. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. – John 2: 13-22
People who read literally still think that Jesus entered into the temple of Jerusalem and whipped all people that were selling candles and maybe incenses, collecting money for his children or her children and Jesus said 'get out of here you merchants', so, to interpret that in that way is really to be very silly. People who do that do not know initiation. The true interpretation is: the whip symbolizes the willpower that you have to have in order to dominate the mind and willpower always comes from the Pineal gland. The temple is your body; it's also your mind. In your mind you have lust, pride, envy, greed, gluttony, laziness, anger, the seven capital sins.
So take the whip, your willpower, and throw all those merchants out of your temple; because the temple, which is your body, is called the house of prayer. But we have transformed that temple into a market; now in this day and age we might say super market. So, we have to take them all out. This is the meaning. Do what thou wilt, that is the teaching. But for that you have to first ride on the donkey.
Now you came here in this lecture and the donkey is riding you, it is above you. So take the whip of willpower and put the donkey down and say 'no you donkey, mind of mine, you are my animal, I have to ride on you, not you on me'. And then you go inside of your temple and take out all the merchants; in order to do the will of God. Thus, for that put on your Kippah, put on your hat. And study all religions because that hat is in all religions, there is not a single religion that has not a sacred hat. Not only the pope has a hat, all of religions have the Kippah, the hat, the skullcap.
