Kabbalah 4: Seven Days of Genesis, a Free Online Course
The Fifth Day of Genesis
- Written by Gnostic Instructor
I know (the Son of Man or) a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, whether in the (physical) body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the (physical) body, I cannot tell: (my Inner) God knows; such an one caught up to the third heaven (or Heaven of Venus-Tiphereth).Genesis1:20-23:
And I know such a (Son of) man, whether in the (physical) body, or out of the (physical) body, I cannot tell: God knows;
How that he was caught up into (the) paradise (of the Sixth Dimension), and heard unspeakable words (about the Venustic Initiation), which it is not lawful for a (Earthly) man to utter.
Of such a (Son of) man will I glory: yet of myself (as Earthly Man) I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.
For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he sees me to be, or that he hears of me.
And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations (given by the Son of Man), there was given to me a thorn in the flesh (according with my own Karma), the messenger of Satan to buffet me (the Earthly Man), lest I should be exalted above measure.
For this (painful) thing (or Karma) I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me: ‘My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in thy weakness.’
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities (as Earthly Man), that the power of (the Solar) Christ may rest upon me.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for (the Solar) Christ's sake: for when I am weak (as Earthly Man), then am I strong (as the Son of Man).
I am become a contumacious! You have compelled me! For I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefs apostles (or Bodhisattvas), though I be nothing.
Truly the signs of an apostle (or Bodhisattva) were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.
For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you? Forgive me this wrong.
- 2 Cor.12: 2-13
And God said: Let the waters bring forth abundantly creatures that may move as living souls, and birds that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.The Fifth Day of Genesis is related with the Son of Man, Tiphereth, which means Beauty.
And God created great living souls, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged bird after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
And God blessed them, saying: Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds multiply in the earth.
And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
True Beauty is in relation with the Monad (our Inner God).
The Fifth Day is when the initiate is united with his own Monad, from the physical plane to the causal plane (sixth dimension) where we find the Human Soul.
The Monad is a trio of Spirit, Divine Soul and Human Soul, which is Will Power.
The Human Soul is represented in Theosophy as Superior Manas.
There are two men inside any Master: one above (the Superior man), one below (the Inferior man).
- Physical body = Stula Sarira
- Vital body = Lingam Sarira
- Astral body = Kama Rupa
- Mental body = Inferior Manas (Inferior man)
- Causal body = Superior Manas (Superior man)
Paul in 1 Cor.15: 45-49:
And so it is written: The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a vivifying spirit.The Heavenly Man expresses the wisdom of God through the Superior Manas (Tiphereth, the Son of Man).
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is earthly; and afterward that which is spiritual.
The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord (our Monad) from heaven.
As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
God created Heaven and Earth. In the Heavens of the Sixth Dimension we find the Heavenly Man, the True Man that expresses in the Physical Body through Tiphereth, the Human Soul.
The Inferior man is Netzach, the mind or Inferior Manas below, where we find the karma.
The Name of God in Tiphereth is Eloah Va Daath in the world of the Archetypes - Atziluth.
From the top of the Hieroglyphic Tree of Life Tiphereth is the Sixth Sephirah.
- Eloah = Goddess
- Va = and
- Daath = Knowledge
6 = related to the Lovers, the soul, temptation, downfall.
The sixth commandment is, “You shall not commit fornication,” because the Human Soul is willpower, and the seat of the human soul is the pineal gland, in the middle of the brain.
When someone transmutes the waters of life (Ether of Life, Tattva Akasa), they are doing it by means of willpower through the pineal gland. This is how we command the sexual waters, the waters of life, the “oceans,” the “seas.”
There are two types of waters in the Physical Body – Chemical Ether (metabolism of body), Ether of Life (sexual waters).
If we want to command the waters that are under the heaven of Yesod (the waters in Malkuth “the Physical Body” the inferior part of Yesod), we will have to do it through the Human Soul, willpower, and the seat of the Human Soul is in the pineal gland.
The God of the Ocean is Neptune, who is related with the pineal gland. Neptune is related with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the God of the Waters. So Neptune or Poseidon represents the Holy Spirit among the Gods of the Greco-Roman Pantheon.
The waters of the seas (sexual waters) are symbolized in Mary. The waters of Mary, the Divine Mother or the Feminine aspect of the Holy Spirit are commanded through the Human Soul, Willpower; this Willpower acts through the Pineal Gland assisted by the masculine aspect of the Holy Spirit (the white dove, the Swan, the Eagle and other symbols).
The Initiate has to work with the waters of life (Akasa Tattva) because this Tattva is related with the brain and in the middle of the brain is the Pineal Gland, the seat of the Atom of the Holy Spirit and Human-Will.
The sexual forces from the waters of the Akasa Tattva in our genitals are the waters of Mary. The “Shakti Potential” of these waters ascend when they are fecundated by the fire of the Holy Spirit who descend from above, from the Pineal Gland by means of Willpower (Thelema).
The Divine Mother is Shekinah, the feminine aspect of the light.
Shekinah Eloah is the Holy Spirit that acts through the Soul-Will. The Soul-Will is the Child of the Holy Spirit.
This is what is understood when Jesus stated that we must be born again by means of the power of the Water and of the Spirit.
We are a “New Born” when we attain the level of Tiphereth.
All the forces of the Elohim, or all the forces of the Holy Spirit that are coming from above, from the Gods, are creating on the earth different types of souls that evolve in the kingdom of the Earth, “Malkuth”.
The Living Soul produced by the waters of Mary is what we call in Gnostic Kabbalah Nephesh.
Nephesh is the soul or vitality of the body that evolves in all of the kingdoms of nature. This Nephesh expresses through our seed (semen) and through the blood.
On falling upon our earth, the stellar rays produce colors, sounds, metallic elementals which condense into metals; metallic elementals that evolving become plant elementals; plant elementals which transform into animal elementals; and animal elementals which, at last, awaken their divine sparks (Monads) to incarnate in them, for the first time, into men who become angels to return once again to their stellar father who engendered them.All of those forces of the Holy Spirit, or the strength of the Gods, related as living energy descends from above, enters into the atmosphere and is transformed in the different kingdoms of the Earth into the different types of Nephesh, or living souls.
All this descent and ascent of the virginal sparks through this journey of matter is symbolized by the ladder in Jacob’s dream.
What is iron? It is the soul (Nephesh) of “Samael-Mars” evolving there.
What is copper? It is the soul (Nephesh) of “Uriel-Venus” evolving there.
What is lead? It is the soul (Nephesh) of “Orifiel-Saturn” evolving there.
What is gold? It is the soul (Nephesh) of “Michael-The Sun” evolving there.
What is silver? It is soul (Nephesh) of “Gabriel-The Moon” evolving there.
What is tin? It is the soul (Nephesh) of “Zachariel-Jupiter” evolving there.
All this flux and reflux of life resounds in entire nature with the Chinese gong.
- The Zodiacal Course by Samael Aun Weor
This is how the Cosmocreators (Elohim) are fecundating the matter; this is how they place into the waters (Akasa Tattva) of the different kingdoms of nature, their own Nephesh, or living soul.
The Bible in Hebrew says, "Nephesh Chaia," this means “living soul” or living creature. The word Chaia (Chet, Iod, He) in Hebrew means: beast, animal, anima, soul, life, vigor, creature. The plural of Chaia is Chaioth.
Chaioth ha Kadosh: Cry, Speak, Roar, Bellow: this is in reference to the divine forces of the souls of the elements: Air, Water, Fire and Earth respectively. These are the four sacred animals “Animas” of Holy Alchemy.
This is the creative power of the cosmocreators that descend from the outer space and enter into the atmosphere, through the solar light, Prana.
Prana is transformed into Akasa and into the many tattwas of the ether, and enters into different kingdoms of nature, and is evolving in the different matters.
These evolve or develop through the Holy Spirit or creative energy. This is why they are called waters of life or the waters under the Heaven; the sexual matter.
In the mineral kingdom, those waters are related with magnetism, electricity,
So, do not think that the waters of Genesis are just H2O. The waters of Genesis are different; these are the waters of life.
The waters of life are contained the pollen of the plants. The living soul, Nephesh, that comes from above through the cosmocreators (Elohim) evolves as well in the plant kingdom.
The living soul, Nephesh is found in the sperm and ovum of the animal kingdom.
When we talk of intellectual animal, or Anima, Soul with Intellect, we have to understand how this Nephesh or living soul manifests itself according with its evolution, because this Anima or Soul evolved from the mineral, plant and animal until the kingdom wrongly called “human kingdom.”
The Bible talks about monsters in the waters that some translations call "whales."
The Leviathan in Hebrew symbolizes Lucifer.
Lucifer is related with Nephesh, the living soul or sexual potency.
The creatures of the waters of Genesis are not fish, but the different types of Nephesh-Chaia or sexual potency from the Akasa Tattva of the different kingdoms of nature.
These are the different types of monsters, or different types of sexual potency in relation with Nephesh, in the different types of waters (Akasa Tattva).
One is the Akasa Tattva that is related to Mars, another is the water of life related with Venus, etc. Each planet has a different waters of life (Akasa Tattva), Philosophical waters.
Nephesh is related with the blood and the sex. Hebrews have a special attention to the blood and sex. Blood becomes sexual energy in your body through the activity of the solar light.
The Prana comes from above from the stars; all that cosmic force enters the atmosphere of the planet as Prana, transforms into Akasa, into Ether, into Tattwas, and Tattwas enter into the chakras of the Vital Body. The Vital Body sends all that water of life, which is the ether vibrating, into the different glands of the physical body as Chemical Ether for the metabolism of physical body. The Chemical Ether is transformed into the Ether of Life (Akasa Tattva) in the blood stream that is mixed with the Prana related with what we eat:
The outcome of this is mixed with our Nephesh, which is related with our stellar inheritance of our individual particular Monad. Our spiritual temperament is related with the type of blood and semen (Nephesh) and also with the wisdom, knowledge that we carry within our consciousness.
- Prittwi = earth = cereals, fruits, vegetables.
- Apas = water = fish, sea food.
- Tejas = fire = red meat.
- Vayu = air = grape juice.
In synthesis: The blood is the vehicle of the fire, vehicle of Hod, Glory. In our blood we have the inheritance of the Astral Body in which we have the connection with our Monad. So all the fire that we have in the blood is going directly into the sex and that fire is related with Nephesh, with the animal part that we have. So our temperament is related with that type of fire, that type of blood, and also related with the wisdom, knowledge, that we have within.
So in the last synthesis, the living creatures that move within the waters of Genesis are the willpower or the sexual potency of the waters of life. This is the same as Lucifer, Leviathan, sexual potency. Each person has his own Lucifer, sexual potency that is related with their own sexual fire, with their own sexual potency.
Jonah the Prophet swallowed by a whale symbolizes: The Initiate devoured by the whale or force of the earth, the physical matter. When the initiate enters into the womb of the whale, he is entering in order to work with Lucifer, the sexual potency of his own waters. The womb of the whale is the womb of the earth because in the core of the earth, the whale, we find the ninth sphere, and this is Yesod where we find the waters of life, the philosophical waters, and every initiate works there with the waters of Lucifer.
Then certain of the (intellectuals) scribes and of the (sanctimonious) Pharisees (that cannot see beyond their mystic pride) answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.The Son of Man, Tiphereth, the Human Soul, Willpower, is the one that is swallowed by a great marine living creature. Willpower is tested on the sexual cross inside the whale, the tremendous power of Lucifer.
But he answered and said unto them: This fornicator and adulterous generation (of Kali Yuga) seek after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah:
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
The men of Nineveh (a marine city of Yesod) shall rise in judgment with this generation (of Kali Yuga), and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, (the Solar Logos, the Prana of Life) a greater than Jonah is here (in Yesod, sex).
Moses is the willpower that commands the waters. Moses is the one who is born from the waters of Yesod by means of Willpower, descended from the Mount Sinai, the Sixth Dimension with the luminous horns of Lucifer. This is the Soul-Will, Tiphereth triumphant: “Eloah Va Daath Iod He Vau He.”
The Holy Spirit is Iod He Vau He, Jehovah in Tiphereth. Tiphereth is the Son of Man. The one who sees the Son of Man, sees the Monad.
Moses represents willpower, and willpower is related with the pineal gland, and also the sexual potency.
This is why the two luminous horns of Moses above his head symbolize the complete control of the sexual potency “Lucifer” through the pineal gland.
The sexual potency is the monster that everyone has in his waters.
The power of a true independent, free and sovereign willpower is represented by the birds of the Holy Spirit floating upon the Pineal Gland of the heaven of our physical body and also in the Sixth Dimension.
The Solar Will, Tiphereth, the Son of Man, the Human Soul is represent by the birds that fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
And God said: Let the waters (of life “Akasa Tattva” through transmutation) bring forth abundantly creatures (Nephesh Chaia) that may move as living souls (in the physical body), and birds that may fly (like eagles with a true independent, free and sovereign willpower) above the earth in the open firmament (of the Sixth Dimension) of (the) heaven (of Tiphereth).And when the Initiate who conquered Tiphereth after the Fifth Initiation of Major Mysteries chose the Path of Renunciation, the Cosmic Christ said onto Mary, the divine Mother Kundalini: "ELOAH VA DAATH, IOD HE VAV HE."
And God created (from the waters of the Akasa Tattva, the Sexual Potency) great living (human) souls (of Masters inside their Physical Bodies), and every living soul (of Masters with an independent, free and sovereign willpower) that moves (reincarnated in the physical world), which the (sexual) waters (transmuted by means of scientific chastity) brought forth abundantly, after their kind (or Cosmic Inheritance), and every winged bird (or Human Soul with the Causal Body of Body of Solar-Will) after his kind (or Inheritance of their own Inner Christ): and God (internally) saw that it was good (for his Human Soul and to himself in their cosmic individual development).
And God blessed them (the Earthly Man where Nephesh Chaia abides, that is, the sexual Potency of the waters under the firmament; and the Heavenly Man that is the bird that flies in the open firmament of heaven of the Sixth Dimension) saying: Be (spiritually) fruitful, and (let thy good will be) multiply, and fill the waters (of life, the Akasa Tattva with solar light through chastity, through transmutation) in the seas (of Mary), and let (the soul-will of) the birds (of the Spirit, Tiphereth) multiply in the earth (by means of the Buddhist Annihilation).
And the evening (from the willpower or virility of Nephesh our Sexual Potency of the waters of Yesod) and the morning (until the heart where the Beauty, Tiphereth abides) were the fifth day (the Fifth Initiation of Major Mysteries).
Hail, thou (ELOAH) that art highly favored, IOD HE VAV HE is with thee (in DAATH): blessed art thou among women.And the Cosmic Christ said onto Tiphereth, the Initiate:
The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Woman, behold thy son (Tiphereth, that is one with Me)!
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest”
Behold thy (divine) mother (she is the Immaculate Conception)!
And from that hour that disciple took (the fruit of) her (Divine Mother’s womb, her Child, the Son of Man) unto his own home (his Physical Body). - John 19:26,27
