When we look at a pornographic image, it strikes the senses and then passes to the mind. The psychological "I" intervenes in these affairs by stealing the erotic image in order to reproduce it in the Mental Plane. Thus, in the world of the mind, that image is transformed into a living effigy. During sleep, the dreamer fornicates with that living effigy, which like an erotic demon tempts the dreamer for the satisfaction of the lust. The outcome is wet dreams with all their horrible consequences. Therefore, the true devotees of the path must not visit cinemas because they are dens of black magic. The erotic figures of the screen give rise to mental effigies and erotic dreams. In addition, the cinemas are full of diabolic elementals created by the human mind. Those malignant elementals damage the mind of the spectators.

Subliminal images and exploits of black magic are abundant within the atmosphere of theaters [editor: and on television and the internet], since the Black Lodge has them under its control. For instance, spectators contemplate actors performing pornographic scenes or listen to words with double or malevolent meaning. These tenebrous elements of depraved enjoyment hurt the retina and the ear and even penetrate the mind. Then, in the Mental Plane, the psychological "I" of every person intervenes by creating mental living effigies that become absolute replicas of the stage images, which captivated the retina and the ear of the spectator. These effigies are endowed with Consciousness and become true "mental demons" which (during the hours of normal sleep) fornicate several times with the spectator's mind. Obviously, this causes nocturnal pollutions (wet dreams).

When the mind creates a mental effigy, this effigy acquires Consciousness and converts itself into a tempting demon of the Mental World. During sleep, this effigy discharges us sexually through nocturnal pollutions (wet dreams).

It is very difficult for a student to disintegrate those mental effigies. Commonly, the students become victims of those mental effigies that their own mind invented. The best is to find a spouse that will really cooperate in the Grand Opus.

Cinemas are worse because within them these depraved elements are more abundant due to the extremely noxious popularity that film makers have impressed on their movies. Disciples should abstain from going to movie theaters.

Unfortunately, in this day and age, theaters and cinemas with their undercover corruption or evident practices of black magic are centers (because of their audacity towards perversion) that have been transformed into explicit and unmistakable temples of black magic, which are unhealthy to the mental state of people.

Even worse conclusions or allegations (yet precise and woeful) can be aimed at night clubs which have inflicted so much evil onto the morality of today's youth.

Therefore, disciples should know how to defend themselves from the above mentioned filthy temptations.

Moreover, there are women who unknowingly accumulate great amounts of Luciferic force. Often these women are not necessarily that beautiful; yet they fall under the service of the Luciferic force. This is why naive male disciples become irresistibly tempted by them; the disciples fight against the temptation, yet the weak end up falling into these women's atmospheres and fail on their path by fatally submitting themselves to these temptations. Indeed, these women with their Luciferic force hypnotize and attract the weak.

The creative forces are threefold: masculine, feminine, and neutral. These great forces flow from above to below. Whosoever wants to regenerate himself has to change this movement and make these creative energies return inward and upward. This is even contrary to Nature's interests. The tenebrous ones then feel offended and attack the initiate terribly. Lady adepts of the Black Hand assault the initiate in order to sexually discharge him. This happens especially during sleep. This is how wet dreams occur. The student dreams of beautiful women who sexually discharge him in order to impede the ascent of the fire through the medullar canal within him.

Nevertheless, a sacred clue to defend ourselves from these terrible temptations exists: this is the "Pater Noster". Hence, the Prayer of the Lord fervently prayed and meditated on without haste and with a great amount of willpower is the clue.

Innumerable letters from many single students suffering from nocturnal pollutions constantly arrive to this patriarchal headquarters of the Gnostic movement.

Certainly, nocturnal pollutions are something filthy, dirty, and abominable. We always answer that the medicine against such subjective states is Sexual Magic, the Maithuna.

However, we must clarify this matter. While we remain very alive, in other words, while we remain with the ego existing in the forty-nine regions of the subconsciousness, erotic dreams inevitably will continue.

Nonetheless, to make light within the darkness, we must emphatically affirm that the Maithuna establishes an adequate foundation in order to avoid nocturnal pollutions, even when pornographic dreams continue.

What occurs is that with the Sahaja Maithuna (sex Yoga ), the chela (disciple) becomes accustomed to frequently refraining from the sexual impulse. Therefore, when an erotic dream is produced, the mind refrains the sexual impulse by instinct. This is how we avoid what is called a nocturnal pollution or the lamentable loss of the vital liquor.

It is clear, certain, and evident that such a formula helps when one has continuity of purpose. Thus, daily practice is needed, year after year, with intensity.

Unfortunately, this formula only works when one has a spouse, but what about those who are single, who do not have a spouse? Then what? Here is precisely where the problem resides, and it is certainly very grave. If what we truly want is to utilize this formula, then what we need is to get a spouse.

Now, let us pass into another very similar matter. I want to refer to sexual transmutation for single men and women.

It would be lamentable if single men and women could not utilize the sexual energy in some way. They also need to progress. So how? Well, let us get to the roots, to the facts.

I do not want to say that those who are single can Self-realize themselves in depth. They cannot, because it is clear that without the Maithuna, it is more than impossible to reach Adepthood, which is so longed for.

Nevertheless, those who are single can and must utilize the creative energy for the awakening of the Consciousness [through exercises such as the Rune OS].
