The First Day of Genesis: Malkuth Genesis 1:1-5:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

The Monad is a trio of Spirit / Divine Soul / Human Soul.


Inside of any Monad one will always find the three atoms of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These are the three atoms of the Cosmic Christ, the Glorian within each Monad; these three atoms (forces) are as an electric wire: positive, negative and neutral. They connect the Monad with the Elohim (Gods and Goddesses). Image

In the World of Briah, the world of Cosmocreators, we find the seven mighty rays that organize these Monads. Our Monad is connected to one of those seven mighty rays.

The three spiritual atoms (Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) of our Monad are connected to the Glorian (Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) of the Elohim (Cosmocreator) who commands the ray to which our Monad is connected. The first words of the Bible:

בראשיתברא אלהים

Bereishit bara Elohim.

In common English: “In the beginning, God create..” This phrase actually has many meanings. One, according to Zohar, the more important book of Kabbalah, is:

This is why it says Bereishit, about Chokmah, which is composed of beth-reishit. the numerical value of the letter Beth is two, because Chokmah is the second of the ten Sephiroth. it is called resheet (beginning) because (relates to the World of Briah-Creation), although the supernal and concealed Kether is the first of the Sephiroth, Kether is not included in the number of the Sephiroth (because relates to the World of Atziluth-Archetypes). Thus, the second--namely Chokmah--is considered as the resheet (beginning). therefore, it is considered Beth-reishit, Beth, since it is the second Sephirah in the order of the emanation of the Sephiroth, and 'beginning,' since it is the first in (Briah) the counting, as Kether is not counted.

  • Beth = Chokmah
  • reishit = The "Higher, or Upper Wisdom,” which is related to the Sephirah Chokmah: the cognizance that is always creating

Furthermore, just as the upper Chokmah is a beginning, so is the lower Chokmah a beginning. From the upper Chokmah down to Malkuth, which is the lower Chokmah, there is no Sephirah that may receive for itself the illumination of Chokmah. Hence, Beth should not be separated from reishit. in other words, this bet alludes to Malkuth, which is the lower Chokmah. since there is no other Sephirah between them that may receive the illumination of Chokmah, Malkuth and reishit should be joined to form Bereishit. - Zohar

So, a proper translation of Bereishit bara Elohim, according to Kabbalah, could be:

The "Higher, or Upper Wisdom" of the six, over which stands the seventh Sephirah (Jehovah Elohim in Daath), created the Heaven and the Earth.

Chokmah, the "Higher, or Upper Wisdom" of the Gods and Goddesses, is related to creation (World of Briah).

“Throughout, the 10 Sephiroth are represented as divided into the three higher, or the spiritual Triad, and the lower Septenary. The true Esoteric meaning of the sacred number seven is cleverly veiled in the Zohar; yet was betrayed by the double way of writing "in the beginning" or Be-resheeth, and Be-raishath, the latter the "Higher, or Upper Wisdom." As shown by Mr. Macgregor Mathers in his Kabbalah (p. 47), and in the Qabbalah of Mr. T. Myer (p. 233), both of these Kabalists being supported by the best ancient authorities, these words have a dual and secret meaning. Bereishit bara Elohim means that the six, over which stands the seventh Sephirah, belong to the lower material class, or, as the author says: "Seven . . . . are applied to the Lower Creation, and three to the spiritual man, the Heavenly Prototypic or first Adam." - H.P.Blavatsky, from The Secret Doctrine.

Bereishit bara Elohim created the Monads and material world. Heaven is always related to God, our own particular Spirit. Our Monad, Spirit, is always in Heaven.

The Monads (Spirits) are related to a particular Cosmic Ray. When the Monads are sent out (into the universe) from within the bosom of the Absolute (the Eternal Cosmic Common Father) they immediately become connected when being fecundated by that particular Cosmic Ray or Cosmo-creator that is in charge of that part of the Cosmos. This is how our Monads are connected with the Elohim / Gods and Goddesses / Cosmo-creators. All the Monads of this Planet Earth are connected to the Elohim in that way, this is, through one Ray among the seven cosmic rays. Any one of these seven rays is what is called Glorian (Father / Son / Holy Spirit).

The difference between the three spiritual atoms (Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) of our Monad and of the three spiritual atoms (Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) of the Elohim (because the Elohim or Cosmocreators are also Monads) is that they were also simple Monads in former Cosmic Days (as our Monads presently are), but they became Self-realized and developed the power of creating a world, the power of organizing a kosmos. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit of the Elohim or Cosmocreator Monads have more wisdom, more capacity. The Monad of an ant (Father /Son / Holy Spirit) has only the power to create that matter, that tiny body of the ant. The heaven of that ant is its Monad that only has the power of creating that earth/ matter, which is that ant. But through evolution, the three spiritual atoms will learn to create more complicated organisms, until the moment in which the Monad is capable of creating a human body, and if this Monad enters into the initiatic path, it will learn how to create a world, a sun, just as Michael, Raphael, etc. who are Monads that are capable of giving life and sustaining it on the planets. Suns, stars, are Elohim.

Bereishit bara Elohim; these are the Gods related with the universe, eg. In this solar system, the seven Cosmocreator Monads that command the seven mighty rays are: Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Michael, Samael, Zachariel and Orifiel. There are others, because other Elohim exist in this solar system, but these seven are the main ones.

All Monads are connected to the three spiritual atoms (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) of these seven Cosmocreator Monads. In order to achieve the work in the Self-realisation of the Being, or in other words, in order for the Monad to create the human being into its own image, we need the help of Christ. No one gets to the Father (our Monad) except through the Son. Christ is not a person, is not an individual, but the Multiple Perfect Unity. Christ is that cosmic energy that manifests itself through the Seven Cosmic Rays of this or any solar system. Christ is the Lamb with seven horns (rays) and seven eyes (chakras) of the book of Revelation. Each Monad is connected to any of these seven horns. Thus, that Cosmocreator Monad that commands such Cosmic Ray or horn of the Lamb (cosmic fire) is connected to the Cosmic Christ. This is how the Cosmic Christ gives us its energy through that Cosmic Ray in order for us to become united with our Father (Monad) who is in Heaven. Whether we are connected to Gabriel, or Samael… the Christ is always the same. Christ is always Christ—Cosmic, Universal—but acting in a different way according with each particular Cosmic Ray. This is why we find different kinds of Masters, because these Masters are connected to different Cosmic Rays.

  • Mars / Samael: Warriors
  • Venus / Uriel: Art
  • Sun / Michael: related to the Law of the Scale…

Light is always Light. Christ grants its Light to its Monads, but its light illuminates different in each Cosmocreator. Samael is Red Light, the Red Christ.

All Monads evolve in the mineral, plant, animal and human kingdoms. The Earth / Malkuth is the physical body created by the Monad through the direction of the Elohim. The Monad created the body, but above the Monad is always a Cosmocreator that is guiding the Monad. So in this Earth, without Cosmocreators, nobody can have a physical body. Our Monad is always the intermediator of the creative force from the Cosmocreators. That’s why in initiation one has to follow one’s own Monad, Being, Inner God, but our Monad is always following its particular Elohim, following its own Cosmic Ray. In order to reach the Absolute (the bosom of our Cosmic Common Eternal Father) the Monad needs the help of its own particular Cosmic Ray or Elohim this way the Monad develops faster, because the Cosmic Christ is connected to our Monad through that Cosmic Ray. That Elohim is Christ or the Light, the electricity, that acts through that Elohim.

In the beginning Elohim created Heaven and Earth.

We have to realise that many different types of people exist who are related to different types of Cosmic Rays. Therefore, when a Monad reaches the level in which we are in now (the humanoid kingdom), and if we enter into initiation, we read:

...And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

Earth = matter, physical body. Because “In the beginning Elohim created Heaven” is the evolution of our Spirit in Heaven, and is related with the Elohim “..and the earth...” is the physical body in different steps in evolution from the mineral until the human kingdom.

..And the earth was without form, and void...

The matter, the earth (physical body), that we have here and now, is without form, is disorganised, there is no psychological organization within us. When we examine our psyche through meditation, we discover that within our psyche is not God, but the Ego (the devil). We do not have even Tiphereth, the Human Soul, incarnated. We are beings without Human Soul, even though we have one small part of Tiphereth, Beauty, Soul, inside, which is the Consciousness, the essence, the Buddhata. The Buddhata is an embryo of soul; this embryo is trapped within Lust, Anger, Greed, Envy.. etc., it is without form and void, in disorder (and the earth was without form, and void…). There is no organisation in our psyche, it has no form.

...and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

The deep is the abyss in each of us: the subconsciousness/ unconsciousness/ infra-Consciousness; it is the darkness within us. If we start awakening the Consciousness, then we will see light. But at the moment we only see darkness inside. There is no Light, only disorder, and emptiness, a Void. There is nothing there related to our Monad; the Buddhata disgracefully is bottled up within the animal ego, defects, vices, perversity, etc... Fortunately, Genesis tells us how to initiate our interior organization and to make light within that darkness.

And the (Ruach Elohim) Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters...

“And the Ruach Elohim…” Ruach means Spirit, and also Breath or Wind. In this case we read as Spirit. The Solar Spirit (Ruach Elohim) finalizes its transformation (through the metabolism of the physical body) in the sexual waters. The Solar Spirit (Ruach Elohim) is the Christic Solar Substance within the sperm and the ovum that are floating upon face of the sexual waters of man and woman. Here in these Genesic Waters is the beginning of all life. “And God said..” We are only interested in Self-realization if our Monad wants to Self-realize. Our God has to decide, has to say. Our Monad can guide us, but first the Elohim have to indicate how. The Elohim assist and help the Buddhatas and Monads through their Cosmic Ray. The Masters of the White Lodge are always taking care of all the souls and Monads of the earth. The Monads need to be guided by the Cosmic Christ. So, the Cosmic Christ through the Elohim guides those Monads that are entering into the Initiatic Path. This is why we always find Avatars, Prophets, Messengers who descend here to teach. The Monad reaches the level of Mastery through the guidance of the Elohim. Afterwards, the Monad can proceed illuminating itself with its own experience, with its own light.

And Elohim said, let there be light: and there was light…

This knowledge is light for our darkness. But the real light shines when we awaken the Kundalini, the Fire of the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit is the maker of Light. Our Inner God has to invert the animal sexual current in order to transform it into Human. Because the animal nature is always related to multiplication, automatism, mechanicity etc.; the animal only utilizes the sexual energy to physically multiply, to create. If we want to enter into the Human kingdom, we have to take advantage of that Solar Light (Christ) in order to make Light within our psyche, with the help of our God, by awakening the Fire of Kundalini; this is how we acquire the power to destroy the darkness within, step by step.

And God saw (when someone awakens the Kundalini, the Fire within) that the Light was good (for illumination).

The Kundalini, the Fire of the Holy Spirit, awakens, and goes up from earth to Heaven, from the coccyx to the brain. It starts in Yesod (in the microcosmic humanoid body), which is the sexual force, with which the Spirit of God is moving upon the face of the waters. This is the 9th sphere, Yesod that is in the centre of the earth, in Hell, where Dante finds Lucifer, the sexual potency. We have to steal the fire from Lucifer in order to make light within out interior darkness. “Temptation is Fire; the triumph over temptation is Light.” We must command the sexual force because the Spirit of God moves upon the face of the sexual waters.

And God divided the Light from the Darkness.

When we awaken the Fire of the Holy Spirit, the Kundalini, then a division between light and darkness occurs. The Light gives us Consciousness of our Heavens, the Gods, Masters, the astral, mental planes, etc. The Darkness is our ego. God makes that division or separation.

...And the evening and the morning were the first day...

We always start in the evening, in the darkness, and step by step we move towards the light. We start from the base or foundation (Yesod) and work upwards. The First Initiation of Major Mysteries is when the fire of Kundalini (the Holy Spirit) rises from the coccyx to the root of the nose in the physical body. In each initiation, in each day of Genesis, we are losing part of our animal nature and gaining human nature. What happens to the Monad? The Monad becomes transformed with all of that energy (Kundalini) that rises in the earth, in the physical body; it grants onto the Monad divine mighty powers. Upon receiving this First Initiation, our Innermost, Gedulah or Chesed, Mercy, our particular Spirit, becomes united with Geburah, our Divine Soul, and then in the Heavens of the Sixth Dimension is celebrated the birth of a new Master. Simply, it is another Monad that is entering the current that leads to Nirvana. That Monad is a new born Master in Heaven; such Monad still is not born as a Master on earth. The Buddhata of that initiated Monad has changed; the Buddhata has more capacity for helping others, because its Monad has already performed the First Day of Genesis within.

We have studied the First Day of Genesis in the light of Gnostic Kabbalah; this is in an intellectual spiritual way, but we have to perform it practically, through the internal initiation of Daath.

“The "Higher, or Upper Wisdom" of the six Cosmo-creators (Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter in Briah), over which stands the Seventh Cosmocreator (Saturn, which is related with the Sephirah Binah, Jehovah Elohim in Daath), created the Heavens (the Monads) and (the Physical Body) the Earth. And (because of the animal ego, the Consciousness of the Physical Body or) the earth was without (human) form and void (of the Spirit), and darkness (absence of spiritual light) was upon the face of the (psychological) deep; and (nonetheless) the Spirit of God (or the Ruach Elohim of the Stellar Gods) was moving upon the face of the waters (of Sexuality). And (during sexual transmutation, this Ruach Elohim of) God said: “Let there be light (within this psychological chaos of Malkuth); and there was (the) light (of Kundalini rising through the 33 vertebrae of the spinal column of the Physical Body). And (this Ruach Elohim of) God (internally) saw that the light (of Shekinah, the Divine Mother Kundalini) was good (for his Self-realization); and (this Ruach Elohim of) God separated the light (of our Divine Mother Kundalini) from the darkness (of the ego in Malkuth and placed it in Geburah, his Divine Consciousness). (So this Ruach Elohim of) God called the light (of his physical body, “Malkuth,” the first Initiatic) Day, and the darkness he, (the Ruach Elohim) called (the Spiritual) Night (of the Soul in Malkuth). And there was the evening (when one takes the solar light from the sun that sets in Yesod) and the morning (when the solar atoms of the sun rise towards the brain), the first (Initiatic) day. And because God, the Monad separated the light or Wisdom of Christ from the darkness or ignorance of the ego, the light shone exceedingly more in the darkness of the earth; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Thus the light within the Monad said to its own Cosmic Ray:

Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.
