In our previous lectures, we explained in detail about the symbols related with the Garden of Eden, however, we did not talk about the tempting serpent of Eden and what relates to temptation as it is written in chapter three of the book of Genesis. It is very important for us to comprehend the symbolism of the tempting serpent of Eden, in order for us to deeply comprehend the marvelous mysteries enclosed within the Garden of Eden.
Microcosmically speaking, the Garden of Eden is formed by the physical body together with the vital body; here we are not referring to the Garden of Eden located in the fourth dimension, but to our own particular individual garden, which we always carry with us, since this is related to our vital body, the superior aspect of our physical body.
If we understand that the Garden of Eden is formed by our physical and vital bodies–which in Kabbalah are called Malkuth and Yesod, respectively–we can then easily talk about the two trees that are in the midst of the Garden. Thus, let us visualize the physical body and enquire where these two trees–the Tree of Life and the tree of good and evil–are located.
Within, we have a spinal medulla plus its two nervous systems – taking into account that the brain and spinal medulla are the central nervous system – thus, when I am stating “plus the two nervous systems,” I am referring to the two other nervous systems: the grand sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous systems. The three main nervous systems are connected to the different glands, different organs, muscles, etc., of our physical body. These three nervous systems are related to the three primary forces of the Tree of Life, the Logoic Triangle: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit–or Kether, Chokmah, and Binah. These three primary forces or energies descend from above.
“Delight” - which is the Eden Above, the Upper Eden - is the Sephirah Daath. So, “Delight” is where “Jah and Chavah” are united, where Father and Mother, Abba and Aima are united, and through them the three primary forces descend into our physical body. Or, as we explained in other lectures, the Akashic forces from heaven penetrate the physical body through the three nervous systems. This is how that which is God nourishes the physical body; in other words, this is how Christ enters into the physical body in order to nourish the vital and physical bodies through the Tree of Life, which microcosmically is the spinal medulla with its nervous systems.
Thus, we need to comprehend and understand that the soul is what is placed in the middle of the Garden of Eden. The soul is Tiphereth, the human soul. Thus, we as souls are part of that sephirah Tiphereth (which in Kabbalah means “beauty”). Therefore, the essence (our Consciousness) is part of Tiphereth, the human soul, and this Essence is what is in the middle of the Garden (in the pineal gland). This is how God places the soul in the middle of the Garden. Such a God that we are taking about here, is the Ruach Elohim, which is translated as “the Spirit of God,” in other words, the Spirit of the Elohim. We explained in other lectures that this Spirit of the Elohim–this individual particular spirit that each one of us has inside–is our Father, which is what in Kabbalah is called Chesed, which means “mercy.” Thus, Chesed or Mercy is the Ruach Elohim that–as you read in the book of Genesis–in the beginning of creation was hovering upon the face of the waters.
So, our own particular spirit “Chesed” is a child, the son of the three primary forces, which through Jah-Chavah Elohim begot him in “Delight,” the Upper Eden. This is why when we talk about the son of God within our own particular individuality, we talk about the son of our own Jah-Chavah Elohim. So, Chesed is the son of Jah-Chavah Elohim that descends into the physical body in order to create. Thus, this Ruach Elohim is hovering over the sexual waters of Yesod in order to create our physical body; thereafter, he sends his child, his human soul, which in this case is our psyche. We as part of that human soul are embryos, which are called essence, Consciousness.
As we already explained, in the beginning Jah-Chavah Elohim plants the Lower Garden of Eden; Jah-Chavah Elohim does this within the womb of our mother, which in her particular case, her womb is another Eden where the Holy Spirit (Jah-Chavah Elohim) creates our own Garden of Eden, which will be our physical and vital bodies together, in order for us “to keep it and maintain” that garden and take advantage of it. This is why after nine months when the physical body is done, created, this means that the Garden of Eden is already planted by Jah-Chavah Elohim. This is - as you remember – what the Bible explains as follows:
These are the generations (creations) of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Jah-Chavah Elohim made the earth (physical and vital bodies) and the heavens (the Consciousness)… And (this is how) Jah-Chavah Elohim planted a garden (our physicality) eastward in Eden (the womb of our mother); and there he put (the soul of) the man (Chesed, the Spirit) whom he had formed. - Genesis 2:4, 8
These are the verses which we are explaining here: the generation, the creation of the heavens and the earth. The heavens in this case is the Upper Eden, “delight,” and the earth is the Lower Eden, which is translated as “pleasure,” and which is our physical body that is created within the womb of our physical mother; it is created thanks to the river that descends from above, from “Delight,” the Upper Eden, which transfers the action of the three primary forces into the womb of our physical mother.
This is how the three primary forces - placed within the womb of our physical mother - create another Garden of Eden, which is our physicality. Little by little it is developed; thus after nine months when the Garden of Eden is done, it comes out from within the womb of our physical mother, in order to fulfill what is written:
These are the generations (creations) of the heavens and of the earth; when they were created, in the day that Jah-Chavah Elohim (which is Father and Mother in Heaven) made the earth and the heavens, and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for Jah-Chavah Elohim had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. - Genesis 2: 4, 5
In other words, when the newly born physical body comes out from within the womb of our physical mother, those elements (archetypes) that God planted in order for us to become a Kosmos Human are still in potentiality within our physical body. So, the physical and vital bodies contain the archetypes that we need in order to develop the “man in the image of God” within. This is why it is written “and there was not a man to till the ground,” because we are only an embryo of soul within the physical body. Yes, a soul-embryo is what we are right now.
When you see a newborn baby, that is, a newborn physical body, in symbology that is a beautiful Garden of Eden; thus, part of the Human Soul, part of Tiphereth, is within that newborn body, and there is not a man there yet, just an embryo of soul that could become a man if when that physical body reaches maturity, which is about 21 years of age, and such a soul receives the clues of the mysteries of Eden and starts working with their physicality and vitality and begins developing all of those elements described in the verse five of the chapter two of the book of Genesis:
Every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for Jah-Chavah Elohim had not caused it to rain upon the earth. - Genesis 2: 4, 5
This means that such an individual still does not know the mysteries of Daath, which are the mysteries of sexual transmutation; therefore Jah-Chavah Elohim had not caused it to rain upon such earth or physicality (Eden); in other words, such an individual still does not receive water from heaven in order to feed those archetypes, those elements that everybody has in their physicality. So we need to know about the mysteries of Daath in order to take advantage of the Garden of Eden. It is also stated:
But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. - Genesis 2:6
That mist from the earth that watered the whole face of the ground is the sexual force of Chavah (Eve) or sexual hormones - that relate to our metabolism - as it rises within the physical body until 21 years of age. If we study the sexual glands in relation with our physical development, we will see how the testicles or the ovaries are related with the different glands of our physical body, and how we as individuals develop our physicality through the hormonal influence of our endocrine glands; in other words, how little by little such a Garden of Eden is growing, blooming, thanks to that mist from the earth, which is that sexual liquid fire that the body takes through our hormones in order to normally develop - “normally” of course, if the individual does not hinder its development by performing at young age depraved sexual activities such as masturbation, and any sexual degeneration, which interrupt the activities of this mist from the earth. Unfortunately, in this day and age all youth when they are sexually aroused, that is, when they are feeling their sexual hormones, their sexual energy, they start at a young age to perform masturbation or the sexual act, or enter into homosexuality and all of that depravity that interrupts the normal development of the Garden of Eden, which is our physicality. This is why it is written in Genesis what Jah-Chavah Elohim said to Adam, which in this case is represented by the embryo of human soul:
And Jah-Chavah Elohim commanded Adam, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. - Genesis 2: 16, 17
The essence is that part of Tiphereth, the human soul that we have within, that has to learn how to take care of this garden, its physicality, in order to fulfill what is written:
And out of the ground made Jah-Chavah Elohim to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden, and the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. - Genesis 2: 9
What is this tree that is pleasant to the sight? This is our physicality; if we do not interrupt our physical development, when we reach maturity at the 21 years of age, we become indeed trees that that are pleasant to the sight. As you see, when everybody is young, the dayspring of youth, the beauty of the sexual force emerges and blooms in their bodies. So, in itself, physically speaking, during our youth we are “trees pleasant to the sight and good for (alchemical) food” through the Tree of Life (spinal medulla and its three nervous systems in activity) which is also in the midst of the garden (physical body) and all the hormones and energies of the three primary forces that are expressing themselves through the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil (sex) in our physical body. This is why when we see young people we realize that they indeed are trees pleasant to the sight, because physically they are expressing that sexual beauty.
Regrettably, as we said, it is very rare to find “trees” that are good for spiritual food, since we see in this day and age many young people who are pleasant to the sight, yet unfortunately have learned from a young age how to expel such beauty from their physical body, which is, they extract their sexual hormones through masturbation and through other sexual vices which are very popular in this day and age. As well, they hinder their development by inhaling injurious elements as marihuana, tobacco, alcohol (which among the youth are very common) that are poison for their physical bodies, which ruin the plants (senses), the herbs (capabilities) of their Garden of Eden. Yes, the youth - in order to show that they have “the power” to control chemical substances in their physical bodies - get drunk, intoxicated; yet through the drugs they take in many ways, they only show off their idiocy. So, most of us interrupt the normal development of this terrestrial paradise or Garden of Eden which we can take advantage of.
In our childhood, the ego that we bring from our past lives is not yet within the body; in order for the ego to penetrate within the body, we need to develop the personality. In our childhood, only the soul is within the body, so only the small percentage of soul that we have is inside the Garden enjoying the fruits of the Tree of Life. In other words, Christ – the three primary forces, the Akashic energy that descends from above and penetrates into the physical body – is given a lot of fruits, senses (the five senses plus the seven chakras are the twelve fruits of the Tree of Life) that the essence eats and enjoys as energies, forces that not only descend in this physical world but also in the internal worlds. So this is how the soul enjoys of the fruits of the Tree of Life.
Unfortunately, little by little - as it is written - the devil penetrates into the Garden of Eden; and this is precisely the main point of this lecture that we must understand.
Fundamentalists always place the Garden of Eden in the past. They do not realize that they themselves carry the Garden of Eden, since they ignore that it is their very physical body; they also blame Satan and Lucifer and many other beings as evil doers who are outside of themselves, without understanding that this Satan, this Devil is also within them; all of us carry Satan, the Devil, within. Yes, the Devil that is called the Tempting Serpent of Eden is the representation of the ego that little by little enters as the personality develops inside of us, thanks to the wrong teachings of our parents, acquaintances, teachers, etc., from this society.
Thus, we have to understand how the ego acts through the Garden of Eden (our physicality). We explained in many lectures that the ego acts through the three brains - which are related to the three nervous systems. Satan (the ego) takes advantage of the three primary forces to satisfy desires. The ego squanders the Christic energy. The ego doest it through the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The ego is created by the wrong use of the energy of the tree of good and evil. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is sex.
Good and evil, this duality, is called Adam and Eve in the bible. They are Ying and Yang, Pingala and Ida, Od and Ob, the two polarities of the sexual energy that are rooted in the testicles of man and in the ovaries of woman.
So the tree of good and evil, the two creative polarities, the two forces that deal with good and bad, are rooted exactly in our sexual organs, because through the sexual energy is how the Tree of Life also nourishes itself. This is why it is stated that the Tree of Life and the tree of good and evil are also in the midst of the garden, because they share their roots. These are rooted in the testicles or in the ovaries, which are related with the three nervous systems. When the tree of good and evil, the sexual organs which are also in the midst of the garden, act independently, they extract the creative water that also nourishes the root of the Tree of Life. So as you see, both trees (the medulla and the sexual organs) are in the midst of the body.
When you observe the sexual organs - the two testicles or the two ovaries - understand that in the vital body they are related to two nervous canals that resemble two serpents entwined along the tree of life (the medulla). We stated in other lectures that in the middle of the spinal medulla there is another serpent that relates to the tree of life, and the two serpents that are entwined around the spinal medulla are precisely Pingala and Ida, Adam and Eve, Ying and Yang, Od and Ob, which in any child of God are standing upright, properly nourishing the tree of life and the tree of good and evil. In such a person the two trees act in harmony together, unless such a child begins to abuse the energy of sex – as is so common in this day and age, where many young, even very young people are already fornicating, meaning, ejaculating the sexual matter (their semen) out of their bodies.
In Gnosis, the sexual matter is called semen whether in the male or in the female, thus, there is masculine semen and feminine semen, which is the water, the essence that nourishes the two trees. As you know when you have trees, when you have plants, you have to take care of those plants everyday by watering them, it is not? Of course, the plants grow and are healthy when you water them carefully since they absorb not only the water, the humidity from the earth, but also the necessary mineral elements that are in the earth, or in other words, the elements that are in the garden. As we stated, this earth, this ground, this garden, is our physical body, our physical matter that is charged with solar force. The water of this physical body is the semen, the sexual matter, which nourishes the Tree of Life as well as the tree of good and evil. This is why it is written:
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it (as a beast): for in the day that thou eatest thereof (as a beast) thou shalt surely die (in other words, the Tree of Life shalt surely die within you). - Genesis 2: 16, 17
Thus, it is obvious that if we take the sexual force out of our body, our body will decay, which is what normally happens to everybody; when they are young (a tree that is pleasant to the sight) when they are sexually potent, immediately they begin squandering the sexual energy, thus the tree of life (the medulla and other nervous systems) no longer receive the sexual strength, thus eventually old age appears, the physicality decays, and we are no longer trees that are pleasant to the sight, since we are decaying; we are decaying because we are abusing of the tree of good and evil, our sexuality. Thus, this how we allow our ego to extract the Christic energy which we have within our three brains; the ego which in this case is the devil, the Satan that we all carry within.
Now, this fornication, this spasm or bestial orgasm, which is precisely the original sin of the human being, is an activity of irrational animals; if you observe dogs, pigs, horses, etc., you observe that when they perform the sexual act they reach the orgasm, the spasm, since, fornication is normal among animals. fornication is common even among intellectual animals, since as you know, we evolved from the mineral kingdom into the plant kingdom, and from the plant kingdom into the animal kingdom, to finally reach the intellectual animal kingdom, in which we learn that we should not fornicate; in other words, in the intellectual animal kingdom we learn that we should not eat from the tree of good and evil like animals. In other words, we have to learn how to enjoy the fruit of the tree of good and evil without reaching the spasm or orgasm of the beasts; that is the clue.
Unfortunately, since we are still animals, we bring the inheritance from our animal past through our blood. The blood is the vehicle of the creative fire, whether fire from above (Daath) or from below (Yesod). We taught about this in different lectures, explaining that in the physical organism the blood is elaborated thanks to the activity of the liver, spleen, and other organs of the digestive system. The blood is elaborated in the evolving instinctual manner.
Thus the bloodstream – that river that encompasses the physical body – carries in its fiery flow our inheritance from the past, the DNA from the animal kingdom, when we were irrational animals. Such inheritance flows in the physical body because in nature everything recapitulates. So, even though we have human physical bodies, the blood that is elaborated through the liver, spleen, and all the organs in the area of the abdomen, the venom blood that flows in our veins, carries our animal inheritance, which relates with what we call the infraconsciousness of nature.
The infraconsciousness of nature is related with all of those animal aspects of the lower kingdoms of nature that everybody carries within. It is through that DNA, through that inheritance, that the tempting serpent of Eden enters into the body in order to tempt Chavah (Eve).
Now listen carefully: according to the book of Genesis, Adam and Eve were created and placed in the Garden of Eden. Thus, talking individually in relation with our physicality, we discover that the Tree of Life is the spinal medulla and the Tree of Knowledge is the genitalia with its two polarities – Good and Evil, Adam and Eve, Yang and Ying, Od and Ob, Pingala and Ida. Thus, Adam and Eve are what the bible calls “Tob Meod” (Very Good), “Meod” is that part of our physicality that relates to the brain and that is connected to the left testicle through Pingala. Thus “Tob Meod” is Adam-Chavah (very good).
“Od” relates to Pingala, which is that part of our physicality that relates with the development of the brain, the development of understanding in all of those parts of the head. This is the serpent that is related with the solar forces. When we refer to the solar forces, we refer to the solar forces of Christ. Likewise, the lunar forces are active in our physical body; the lunar forces are “Ob” which is “Tob” (Good) related with procreation, with spiritual creation – alongside with the solar forces.
Creation relates to “Od and Ob” the two polarities, Sun and Moon. The lunar polarity is Ida, which the Bible in Genesis 3: 20 is called Chavah (Eve). “And Adam “Od” called “Ob” his wife's name Eve (Chavah); because she was the mother of all living;” the mother of the living, because Chavah derives from Chaiah, which in Hebrew means life. Chavah (Eve) is an allusion to the sexual organ, which is the organ related with breeding, with “Be fruitful, and multiply.” So the serpent Chavah, Ida, Eve, Yin or Ob (Kabbalistically speaking) is at the left nostril and rooted in the right testicle; this serpent or polarity relates with the development of the genitalia in any gender, whether masculine or feminine.
Thus you find that Chavah (Eve) relates to Ida, the lunar serpent “Ob” of the caduceus of mercury, and is related with the development of the genitalia, whereas Adam relates to Pingala, the solar serpent “Od” of the caduceus of mercury and is related with the development of the brain. This is how the Tree of Life and the tree of good and evil are related. Therefore, when we talk about Eve within any individual, you must immediately know that we are referring to the lunar serpent, Ida, the lunar forces of “Ob” and the genitalia, the sexual energy, whether in the masculine or feminine genitalia.
We can also talk about the division of sexes in which the male became Adam and the female became Eve, yet, this is not the topic of this lecture. Likewise, we must understand that these two symbolic polarities “Adam and Eve” can be addressed in many different ways.
Here, we are addressing Adam and Eve only in relation with our individual physicality. Therefore, when you read the bible and read about Eve, immediately you have to focus your mind, your imagination, on your sexual organ: this is Eve; yet if you read about Adam, then you have to put your imagination in the brain. These are Adam and Eve in our body, which are also related with the two serpents “Od and Ob” of the caduceus of mercury: the solar serpent Pingala with Adam, and the lunar serpent Ida with Eve; this is the way to comprehend how the Tree of Life relates to the two polarities of the Tree of Knowledge and to the brain and medulla and to all the organs. From that point of view, we understand that the physical body has two wombs.
As we taught in the previous lecture, there are two types of letters Mem in the Hebrew alphabet: the closed Mem and the open Mem. These are symbols of the two wombs that relate to the creative waters, since Mem symbolizes water in Kabbalah, whether the waters (Schamayim) from above (Daath) or the waters (Mayim) from below (Yesod). The waters from above are called Schamayim, which in the bible is translated as heaven, which are related to Daath; whereas the waters from below are called Mayim, which are the waters from Malkuth-Yesod, which we are addressing in this lecture, because we are talking about the creative waters of Yesod, sex, in our Malkuth, physical body.
In our physical body we have the replication, the double of what is above, therefore, what is above is here below; this is what we have to understand. This is why when we see the symbolic graphic of the tree of life, you see how the physical body is represented in all of the Sephiroth. Thus you see that Daath is within it, because these two trees are together.
As I said, we have two wombs; however, it is better to state: there are two wombs, because the only one who has two wombs is the woman and not the man. Thus, the woman has a second womb and we as men have also that second womb, which is the spinal medulla. Yes, the spinal medulla is a second womb; we have to understand that in this second womb or spinal medulla is where God creates or elaborates the man in his own image; while the other womb that is in the female body is where our physicality is created, where our Garden of Eden is developed during nine months, as we were previously explaining.
Adam and Eve can create in the physical world by acting through the tree of good and evil, which is sexuality. It is not necessary to explain in detail how to create in this physical world, since everybody – even the irrational animals – know how, and they do not have intellect. As you know, the irrational or rational female animal with a womb is sexually possessed by a male and she becomes pregnant, and in her womb (which of course relates to the Tree of Knowledge) she develops a physical body related to her own species. This is how Adam and Eve created us in this intellectual animal kingdom.
Nevertheless, only the intellectual animal that has three brains can use the second womb; a cow, a bull, a horse, a pig, a cat, a dog cannot utilize the second womb; they cannot create anything within it, because the soul, the anima, needs to know how, and in order to know how, the anima needs to develop intellect, reasoning, and willpower; it needs to learn how to fecundate the second womb, which is the spinal medulla, which of course relates to the Tree of Life.
Thus, in order for us to fecundate the second womb, the spinal medulla, we must know how to utilize the two polarities, our own Adam and Eve. Remember that - physically speaking - we men and women have these two polarities. Yet if a man wants to create a physical body, this man needs to sexually possess a woman, thus, the woman has to receive the sexual matter of the man in order to be pregnant. However, how do we fecundate the second womb? This is symbolically explained in the bible, Genesis states this as follows:
And Elohim said, Let the earth (the female principle, the genitalia) bring forth grass (life force), the herb (the liquefied Astral Light of the Cosmic Christ) yielding (the astral) seed (or solar creative power), and the fruit tree (the female creative power “Ob”) yielding fruit (the masculine creative power “Od”) after his kind (after their Aima Elohim from Daath), whose seed is in itself (in Ida or “Ob” their Eve and not out of Ida or “Ob” their Eve), upon the earth (their spinal medulla): and it was so. And the earth (their spinal medulla) brought forth grass (the life force of their Chavah, or their Eve or “Ob”), and herb yielding seed (the life force of their Adam or “Od”) after his kind (after their Aima Elohim), and the tree yielding fruit (the masculine active creative force of “Jah”), whose seed was in itself (in Pingala or their Adam, and not out of Pingala or their Adam), after his kind (after their Abba Elohim): and Elohim saw that it (the creation of the Man in his own image) was (the outcome of the transmutation of the waters of) good (“Tob” or “Ob”, Chavah, the sexual organ). - Genesis 1:11, 12
So the woman is a fruit tree and the man is a yielding fruit tree; understand here the difference, when you read “yielding fruit tree” it refers to the man, whereas when you only read “fruit tree” it relates to the woman. Only the male principle has the capacity of yielding, that is, to give the seed. Thus when a man gives or yields the seed, that is, the fruits of his own Tree of Knowledge (in his physical body), then that seed, which is the sperm, penetrates into that other Tree of Knowledge (sex) of that woman’s physical body, then the woman blooms and becomes a fruit tree, thus, only a female is a fruit tree, since when she blooms, she gives birth the fruits of her womb. Yet, for this, as you know, it is necessary the activity of the two trees.
Thus if in your spiritual womb (your spinal medulla) you want to develop “every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew” (meaning that still are not yet developed because these are within us in potentiality), if you want to develop within your spinal medulla those spiritual archetypes, then indisputably you need the activity of your Adam and your Eve, because the two creative waters need to be in activity in order to create within the spinal medulla the man in the image of God, mentioned in Genesis 2:5: “and there was not a man to till the ground.” So the man to till the ground of Eden has to be created.
The fact that we have a physical body with a human shape does not give us the right to be called human beings or Man (Adam). The soul that we have within has the duty of developing all those archetypes, all of those elements, in the physical body, in order to create within that Adam which the bible talks about, that man that needs to be created, that has to till the ground, the man that has to name the animals and that is the king of nature.
As you see, the physical body is a replica of the whole cosmos, of the whole nature. If we are not a King or Queen of our own particular nature, or our own particular earth, our own particular garden, how are we going to be kings and queens of the universe? We have to perform this alchemical sexual work within, because what is inside reflects in the outside; the interior is the reflection of the exterior, and the exterior the reflection of the interior. Therefore, to call the people from this day and age “human beings” is a joke of a very bad taste, since they do not control their own Garden of Eden. In order to control the Garden of Eden, we have to develop those elements, those archetypes within ourselves in order for the man to exist, in order for the man to till the ground.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up. - John 3: 14
Nevertheless, in order to perform this alchemical sexual work, we have to defeat the tempting serpent of Eden, which enters into the physical body through the blood. The tempting serpent comes to us from the past, from the infraconsciousness of nature into our physicality and tempts us to perform the sexual act as animals, because we still are animals. For this battle we receive the commandment that we read with our intellect. A horse or a cat cannot read the bible or any other sacred book, but we, intellectual animals can. This is why we receive the commandments, the rules, in order to become human beings. This is why it is stated there in Genesis, in the beginning:
And Jah-Chavah Elohim commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. - Genesis 2: 16, 17
This is written in code, so that only those who develop understanding can understand the alchemical sexual work which they have to do, because we need to develop certain level in our understanding of good and evil in order to develop that man within. This is how you understand what is written in the bible as follows:
Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which Jah-Chavah Elohim had made. - Genesis 3:1
How did Jah-Chavah Elohim make that serpent? In the animal kingdom that serpent is active; it works through the instinctual animal generation. It is the sexual animal instinct that acts in any animal. Of course, the brute animal does not have reasoning and fornicates, it reaches the orgasm, the spasm; yet when we receive this human physicality, that serpent still enters thorough the blood. This is why it is stated that the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field (this field obviously refers to the physical body).
And he said unto the woman... - Genesis 3: 1
As you see, it does not say, “and he said unto the man” (the brain). Remember that we stated that the woman (Eve, the genitalia) is below and man (Adam, the brain) is above, in both sexes. Thus, the woman, even if you see her in her genre, physical speaking, the woman is the one who creates the physical body; yes, after the woman receives the seed of the man she creates a physical body during nine months, thus in matters of creation the woman has more responsibility than the man. The proof of this is nine months. Therefore, this is why the serpent is tempting “the woman” and not “the man.” Nevertheless, in this case it is not the physical body of a woman that the serpent is tempting, but the sexual organs of both male and female. This is precisely “Chavah” Eve; the sexual organ is the giver of life (Chavah, the mother of the living) whether in the male or in the female, this is what we need to understand.
Therefore, the serpent tempts the sexual organs, because in them is where you find the sexual hormones which carry your DNA or animal inheritance. When you develop physically (in puberty), you start sensing your sexual hormones in your sexual organs and blood, then you ask for answers; a young man goes to his parents, brothers, sisters, friends, teachers, asking for answers, he wants to know what is going on with his body, he might think, “I was a boy, now, all of a sudden am having a low voice, my throat is changing, and, as I learned in Kabbalah, my throat is related with Daath.”
As we see in the tree of life, the three primary forces of the first triangle of the tree of life are related to the head, and Daath which is the Sephirah below, relates to the throat, the Logos, the Word:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1: 1
The word is the power of the sexual energy pronounced through the throat; this is why when the man is reaching maturity his voice changes because he is manifesting the activity of the sexual glands in relation with his throat. Of course, he is not only feeling the activity of his sexual hormones in the throat but also in his entire organism; thus he wants answers: what should he do with his sexual force? Unfortunately he always finds wrong answers, since the tempting serpent of Eden that is tempting him through his sexual organs is also finding the answers from other men and women who were already tempted and defeated by their particular serpent of Eden, since they are fornicators. He might go to the doctor – a “fornicator doctor” – and ask: “Doctor, what I should do with my sexual energy?” Then, the fornicator doctor (with a big title hanging there on the wall of his clinic and a professor in any university) will answer him: “Well, masturbate yourself,” since such a doctor is already a slave, a victim of his own tempting serpent of Eden since his young age.
A teenaged boy might go to a priest, who knows about the bible, yet the priest is ignorant about the clues that we are teaching here. Thus the priest may not advise masturbation, but might start doing something queer with the boy or girl. This is because the ego, the devil, Satan is inside of all of us.
The ego that we have within works in our sex through the bloodstream; it comes from the past into our organism. Thus, if we want to defeat the devil, Satan, then we have to start by not nourishing it through the activities of our physical body, which are animal, the bestial activities of our sexual organs. This is the beginning, since in the sexual organs is the beginning of our animal force; the sexual organs are the source of the force of our beast, which the book of revelation calls the Beast 666. Everything in the beast is a mystery.
And (through the bloodstream) he (the serpent) said unto the woman (sexual organs). Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? - Genesis 3: 1
We can enjoy of the Tree of Life, one of the trees of the garden, because we can enjoy or share it fruits, which are the senses, but not of the tree which is related to sex.
And the woman (sexual organ) said unto the serpent (the blood-instinct that flows into sex from the animal kingdom), We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden (physical body): But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden (sexual organs), God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. - Genesis 3: 1-3
“Neither shall ye touch it.” Unfortunately, this tree which is the sexual organ is touched by every youngster through masturbation; thus young people are already defeated by the serpent, because regrettably, in this day and age, in this Kali Yuga, they find plenty of information through many ways about the vice of masturbation.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. - Genesis 3:4, 5
Thus, through the wrong use of the sexual energy, through Ida, which relates to procreation – since Eve, Chavah, the mother of the living, the sexual organs are related with procreation – we learn how to procreate as animals through the orgasm, and with time we learn how to manage the physical body. Yet, now we reach the orgasm, the sexual spasm not even for procreation, but just for fun or sexual gratification. Thus, as a consequence we lost contact with the fruits or psychic senses of the Tree of Life, since our physical senses are opened. This is what happened in the past. The eyes the senses which perceive this physical plane are opened, thus we identify with this physical world to the point that we forget about our inner Self.
So this society, the more they fornicate, the more they attach themselves to this physical world. This is what we call the evil consequences of the Kundabuffer organ (the tail of Satan) that develops through fornication. This is why Chavah, the sexual organ, is called evil, as in the tree of Tob-good and Eve-evil; it has the duality, because through Chavah, the sexual organ, is how we descend or fall into Klipoth.
In Alchemy, we know that Chavah, the woman, the sexual organ, can act in different ways, but when Eve is tempted by the serpent, that is, by the sexual animal force, then Eve fornicates, that is, Eve ejaculates the creative water within which is the sexual force, thus immediately the psyche no longer connects the physical body with the superior waters from the upper Eden, from “Delight,” from Jah-Chavah, because Jah-Chavah is Delight in Daath. Jah-Chavah Elohim, the Holy Spirit, works from Daath through Ida, which is the lunar serpent that in the book of Genesis is called Eve.
So when that Eve or sexual organ fornicates, then the lunar serpent (that is also called Eve, which connects Yesod or the lower Eden to Jah-Chavah Elohim in Daath, the Upper Eden, in other words, the nervous canal of Ida that receives such a Delight from above) no longer receives such a heavenly delight, because through the orgasm it falls down into Klipoth and thus absorbs the devolving elements from Klipoth, from hell, from the infernos or inferior dimensions into the physical body. This is how through the orgasm we destroy, we poison the Consciousness, the soul within; this is how we create a second psychology, the ego. The Klipothic forces are called evil, death, or devolving forces. Therefore, the devolving forces of Klipoth, death, are connected to us through Ida, through the sexual organs.
This is why Samael Aun Weor taught white sexual magic in order to cut such a connection with Klipoth, since as long as we are fornicating, as long as we are reaching the orgasm or sexual spasm of the beasts, we are connected through the sexual organs, through Ida, through Chavah, Ob, down to Klipoth and receiving all of the negative devolving forces, which through the many centuries in time we have been receiving and thus knowing good and evil. Evil relates to Klipoth, yet good “Tob” (written with the three Hebrew letters: Teth, Vav, Beth) relates to the Tree of Life.
As it is stated in the bible, in the book of Genesis that in the beginning when the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters of Yesod, he said:
Let there be (the splendorous) light (of Shechinah): and there was (the splendorous) light (of Shechinah). And God saw the light (of Shechinah), that it was Good (Tob): and God divided the light (of Shechinah) from the darkness (of Klipoth). And God called the light Day (Iom or Eon), and the darkness he called Night (Lilith). And the evening and the morning were the first day (Aeon). - Genesis 1: 3-5
Genesis continues, narrating the seven days of creation: the first was good, all the days were good with the exception of the second day, since this is related with the waters of Yesod, the vial body, thus, in the second day God did not say that it was good; good was omitted on the second day, because through the orgasm of the beasts in Yesod-Sex - the roots of the tree of good and evil - death was created.
And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith Jah-Chavah; Behold, I set (in Yesod-Sex) before you the way of (the tree of) life (Otz Chaim), and the way of death (Klipoth). - Jeremiah 21: 8
The sixth day of Genesis was very good (in Hebrew “Tob Me’od”). It was “very good" because “Tob” or “Ob” the lunar creative waters of Yesod were purified by “Meod” or the solar forces of “Od,” in other words, death was vanquish through the solar waters of “Od.”
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, (the second) Death (in Klipoth) is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law (of karma). - 1 Corinthians 15: 53-56
“Tob Me’Od” is the sixth day of Genesis, because in it God created Adam in his own image, “in the image of God created he Adam; male “Od,” Pingala, the solar force, and female “Ob,” Ida, the lunar force created he them,” in other words, “Tob Me’Od,” very good created he them. This is a solar creation; this is why we always state that we have to create the solar bodies, which are related with the solar forces of “Od” or Pingala through which the three primary forces of Adam (the brain) act in us within the second womb, which is the spinal medulla.
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was (Tob Me'od) very good (Me'od is written with the three Hebrew letters: Mem, Aleph, Daleth, which are the same three letter of Adam: Aleph, Daleth, Mem. Thus, Me'od is Adam). And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. - Genesis 1: 31
Nevertheless, Eve, Ida likes to create in the first womb (the female uterus), since everybody in this world likes to have children. When you enquire about the maternal instinct of procreation in this physical world, you discover that it is naturally feminine: a female cat loves to have kittens; a female dog loves to have puppies, all species like that, since this maternal instinct is natural in the animal, yet if we want to have children not as animals but as human beings, then we have to learn how to procreate in the human way, which is also enjoyable, but not animal. Unfortunately, intellectual animals do not want to learn the power of Kriya-Shakti, since we already know how to procreate through the animal way, since it is easy. People think, if the horses and cats, etc., multiply in that way, why not us, we are still animals, right? Yes, through animal generation is how this “humanity” multiplies, since the maternal instinct in the female intellectual animal is very strong. The woman wants to have a child, yet she does not care if this is through the animal way or through the human way, she just loves to be pregnant, because this is her nature, we understand this.
However, if the couple wants, they can learn how to procreate in the human manner; and this is precisely what we Gnostics teach. For this, we must want to disconnect the psyche from the animal level and from Klipoth, because the tempting serpent that acts through our blood connects us - all of the time - to Klipoth. Thus we are always tempted during the sexual act, since through the bloodstream the tempting serpent gives us this pleasure (Eden) but we have to learn how to transmute the sexual matter (semen) into energy in order to fecundate the second womb, the spinal medulla.
Through the bloodstream we are tempted in the sexual act, as it is written:
And when the woman (Ida) saw (through the bloodstream in the sexual act) that the tree (of knowledge) was good for (spiritual) food, and that it was pleasurable (an Eden) to the (spiritual) eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she (unfortunately, through the orgasm) took of the fruit thereof (yanked or ejaculated the semen or creative waters of Yesod), and did eat (like the beasts), and gave also (this orgasmic pleasure) unto her husband (the brain) with her (fornication); and he did eat (absorbed the Klipothic consequences). – Genesis 3: 6
Obviously, when Eve (the sexual organ) fornicates, the Klipothic elements that through the orgasm are attracted by “Ida” into the physical body go up into the brain and infect Adam; that is, the sensation of the orgasm that we feel as animals in the sexual act is transmitted to the brain. When the brain receives the information of such a bestial sensation, such a pleasurable Edenic sensation, Adam, the brain likes it. Eve is the first that receives this bestial sensation, so, first the sexual organs transmit such an orgasmic sensation to the brain. There, Adam says I like this evil since it is pleasurable, it is from sex, Eden (pleasure), it is from good, from “Tob”, from “Ob.”
This is how the eyes (letter Ayin, perception-sensation) of them (Od and Ob, Adam and Eve) both were opened for (Klipothic) evil (fire or Kundabuffer). This is how the positive fire of “Ra” (the letter “reish” by itself) is transformed into the negative fire of “Ra,” the Kundabuffer organ, since the letters Reish and Ayin together make the Hebrew word “Ra,” which means evil. Because the good fire of “RA” is already disconnected in them; thus they start creating through the negative “Ra,” evil.
The creation of the negative fire from Klipoth is called “ego.” It is called: lust, anger, envy, pride, greed, gluttony, laziness. etc. Those are the rotten fruits from Klipoth, because of the orgasm. In Yesod, the intellectual animal no longer can create the man (superior manas) to till the ground of the Garden of Eden; instead, the intellectual animal creates Cain within. Cain also tills the ground (physical body), yet, he is a fornicator. Thus, the elements that Cain (the bestial mind) collects are from beneath the ground (Klipoth) which God does not like at all. This is why it is written about Cain:
And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto Jah-Chavah... But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell (into Hell). – Genesis 4: 3, 5
God is goodness (Gedulah, the Ruach Elohim) the Spirit of God that wants to create the man in his own image to till the ground. But when Eve falls into the temptation of the serpent or animal instinct, we develop egos or devolving entities. This is also explained in Greek mythology. Remember that when the man was created by Prometheus, Pandora was sent by the Gods or Elohim; this Pandora of the Greeks is the same Eve, the same symbol: the sexual organs. Thus when Pandora, Ida, opens the sexual box, all of the evil of the world of Klipoth is released into the physical word, meaning, into our own physicality and our own Psyche. Thus through the orgasm of the beasts, the evil enters into the world. Meanwhile, we blame the governments of the Earth for the evil things are happening in this society; yes, we blame everybody else. Yet, through our bestial actions is how we always open the doors for those evil things, the ego, to come into the world, especially through our sexual actions.
The egos, which are the animal elements that we carry within, are created and strengthened through the sexual spasm or orgasm. At the evolving level in which we are, we should not fornicate because through the orgasm we enter into devolution (the second death); as intellectual animals, we are at the top of mechanical evolution. Thus, when we continue generating ourselves like animals, then we start devolving, we enter into devolution, we no longer go up or evolve, but devolve. This is how we absorb the elements of devolution that are from Klipoth into our physicality and we make a corrupted society, a devolving, degenerated society such as the one that we have right now.
When the body is young, everybody is tempted by the serpent. Usually we fall into temptation, even if we sing to Jesus. Yes, we fall into temptation even if we know by heart the prayer of the Lord given by Jesus, the prayer which reads:
And (in Yesod) lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from (Klipothic) evil: For thine is the kingdom (Malkuth), and the (sexual) power, and the glory (of Hod), for ever. Amen. - Matthew 6: 13
Jesus indeed represents that Nous atom within our heart that connects us to “Delight,” to Jah-Chavah in Daath, the Upper Garden of Eden. Regrettably, our psyche is not connected to Eden, and not even to the 48 laws of Malkuth the earth, but instead is connected to Klipoth, the infernos, since right now we have the creation of Satan, which is the ego, the devil within, that is very big and grotesque; this is our unfortunate situation.
This is why it written:
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. - Genesis 3: 7
“And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked,” means that the good of Gedulah - God, the fiery garment of the soul – was no longer within them. Before, they were nourished by the Tree of Life, yet when their eyes were opened to see evil they became naked of good, that is, without the knowledge of their superior Self. “And they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” The leaves of the fig tree are related with the sexual feminine forces. This is why in the bible, in the gospels you find that Jesus of Nazareth condemned or damned a fig tree:
And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. – Matthew 21: 19
Jesus, the Nous atom, wanted to harvest figs but the tree was no longer ripe, there was nothing thereon, but leaves only; understand that the fig tree symbolizes the feminine sexual forces, the sexual organs, the feminine creative forces. This is why when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons in order to protect their shame.
This means they cleaved to the shadows of that tree from which they ate to cover themselves, as the so-called "leaves of the tree" give shade to those underneath them. The verse continues: "And made themselves loincloths.” Because they acquired knowledge of this world and became attached to it, they saw that this world was governed by these leaves of the tree. Thus, they made themselves a stronghold to strengthen themselves with these leaves in this (Klipothic) world. They became acquainted with all sorts of sorcery and wanted to protect themselves with weapons made from the (Klipothic shadows of the) leaves of the tree. – Zohar
Thus, they were covering themselves with the Klipothic forces of fornication, because the fig tree (sexual creative force) was used in the wrong way. This is how we all cover our shame before God. In this physical world we only look for titles, we look for this leaf or this other leaf, subjective success in this physical world in order to hide our shame, our nakedness. In the past, in Lemuria, the sexual organs were acting in the right way; Lemurians were transmuting their sexual force. Yet now, because we sin, we cover our sexual organs with leaves of fig trees, in other words, we cover them with the shades of Klipoth or the immoral forces of Hell or Infernos.
And now also the axe (which in Alchemy represents the feminine and masculine sexual forces) is laid unto the root (Yesod) of the trees (of life and good and evil): every tree (every person) therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit (from “Chavah” (Eve) their sexual organs - symbolized in the fig tree) is hewn down, and cast into the (devolving Klipothic) fire. - Luke 3: 9
And they heard the voice of Jah-Chavah Elohim walking in the garden in the cool of the day. - Genesis 3: 8
Regardless, you feel that the solar force of God from your breath still walks in the bloodstream of your physical body; in other words, you, as a human soul, you feel within your physical body the solar life, because still the body receives the solar life, the breath of God, which is within the blood of your physical body.
And Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Jah-Chavah Elohim amongst the trees of the garden. - Genesis 3: 8
The trees of the garden are all of the light forces of God that we have in the physical body.
And Jah-Chavah Elohim called unto Adam, and said unto him, where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? – Genesis 3: 9-11
It is obvious that the God within knows that if the soul is afraid, it is because the sexual energy is no longer nourishing the soul. The soul is afraid because God is no longer with her; thus when God asks: “Who told thee that thou wast naked?”
And the man (the brain) said, The woman (sexual hormones) whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me (the pleasure of the orgasm) of the tree, and I did eat. – Genesis 3:12
In other words, the sexual organs that God divided in two bodies gave to the brain through the sexual act the sensation of the orgasm and the brain did eat. As you see, the brain and the sexual forces nourish each other, but because the sexes were divided they needed the sexual act.
And Jah-Chavah Elohim said unto the woman (or sexual organ), what is this that thou hast done? (did you fornicate, did you ejaculate the creative waters of Yesod) And the woman said, the serpent (that comes through the bloodstream from the liver) beguiled me, and I did eat. – Genesis 3:13
This is precisely the excuse that all of us have; we say: “Well, I feel the sexual arousal inside my body and I do not know what to do with it, thus, I masturbate, I fornicate, I just felt the urge of spilling the sexual force.” Thus, the brain “Adam” is the one that receives the consequences, the effects of the orgasm. And since the three atoms of God are in the brain, through them, God realizes our mistake: “Where art thou? What is going on in this garden?” Yes, the atom of the Father, the atom of the Son, and the atom of the Holy Spirit, which are in the magnetic root of the nose, in the pituitary gland, and pineal gland respectively, realize the hindrance of the brain. They wonder why Adam, the brain, is no longer wise, why it is that only 10% of the brain is in use. When the Klipothic forces from below infect the brain through Ida, we become dumb.
And Jah-Chavah Elohim said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life... - Genesis 3:14
This is what we do, since the sexual forces are acting in the wrong way, they go down into Klipoth, thus, we are just shamefully writhing within the mud of the earth. We are receiving through our sexual action of fornication all of this Klipothic dust from the earth. So, the serpent “Ida” is cursed because of the orgasm, in other words, through fornication we fall into damnation. Thus we are damned because of such a sexual transgression, until we stop doing it.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. - Genesis 3:15
As you see, it does not say enmity between Adam (the brain) and Eve (the genitalia); but between thee (the sexual animal instinct) and the woman (the sexual organs); in other words, and I will put enmity between this bloodstream that comes from the liver, spleen, etc., and the sexual organs. Such a problem exists now because we are opened to Klipoth; thus even if we perform the alchemical solar work, there is an enmity here within us. Listen carefully: that enmity is between the seed of the serpent and the woman’s seed. What is the seed of the serpent in this case? The seed of the serpent is: lust, anger, envy, pride, greed, gluttony, laziness. etc., all of that egotism that we have within, that is the seed of the serpent of fornication; and the seed of the woman, which is Chavah, is that seed which we learn how to transmute into energy; it refers to the sexual organ that knows how to transmute, that knows how to be in Chastity. Such an enmity is within each one of us. When we receive the knowledge of good and evil and we start transmuting the sexual libido, when we know how to be connected with “Tob” with Good, yet unfortunately we created a lot of evil inside, thus now we have enmity within as Paul of Tarsus said in his Epistle to the Romans:
For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin (the ego) that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man (of Genesis): But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? - Romans 7: 15-24
Now, whom is at fault? Upon whom does the fault descend? It falls on us, of course. There is an enmity between this tempting serpent of Eden - which is the orgasm, which is lust, which the Kundabuffer organ - and the serpent of Bronze, the Kundalini. Now we have to work, we have to kill, to disintegrate the seed of the serpent which we created not only in this life but also in other lives; since we bring that seed, that ego, from our past lives.
The seed of the woman in this case is that woman, is that sexual force of Shechinah that we know how to transmute, that is our Divine Mother Kundalini. Remember that the Divine Mother Kundalini also polarizes negatively: as negative, she is Kali, thus if we fornicate, that force goes down and creates an enmity inside us. The tempting serpent of Eden is the seed of evil, but the serpent that healed the Israelites in the wilderness is that woman, the Shechinah that goes up and that creates within the spinal medulla, which is the second womb.
Unto the woman (this damnation falls into the feminine physical body) he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. – Genesis 3:16
If you follow that statement you must understand that Adam (the brain) should rule Eve (the sexual organs). When you receive the knowledge, then the brain starts controlling the sexual organs, because when the sex (Eve) controls Adam (the brain), that is lust.
When we start creating children or creating inside of us spiritually, we create with pain, because there is a lot of lust, a lot of sins within us; thus, we have to defeat that which comes from our own Chavah, our own sexual organs. So, Adam (the brain) must control Eve (sex), as it is written “thy husband shall rule over thee”; this is precisely what we want, this is, to rule over Chavah, which is possible when we comprehend the knowledge, Daath.
However, if you translate this literally you might say “well, the man must rule the woman in home, between the married couples.” Yet, if you see the reality in the life of any couple, in any part of the world, the truth is that the man does not control the woman, instead it is always the woman who controls the man, it is always like that. If the man says “I want to put my foot down and control my wife,” let us be frank, the man can never do it. So control yourself first, because if you control your own Chavah (sexual organ), then maybe you might control your own wife. If you do not control your own Chavah (sexual organ), how are you going to control the feminine force that has more strength? The feminine body has more strength because it attracts more the forces of nature and the cosmos, so the feminine body is more receptive, even though men might be more physically strong; yet, indeed the internal psyche of the woman is stronger than the man.
Now, the commandment or statement that says: “thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee” means that what the brains say is what we have to do. When you feel desire in your sexual organs, this means that the bloodstream from the liver, from the past, from the animal level is nourishing sex and thus tempting you through your (Eve) sexual organs. Thus if you follow Chavah (Eve) your sexual organs, and eat of the fruit, then when are you going to start commanding your own body? The brain is the one that has to do it and not the sex. Understand that through the brain, through knowledge (Gnosis), is how we learn to control and transmute the sexual energy.
And unto Adam (the brain) he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife (your sexual organ), and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground (physical body) for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life… - Genesis 3: 17
Thus after the brain follows the sin of Chavah in both Adam and Eve, that is, when the brain followed the voice of his wife (sexual organs), they were kicked out of the Upper Garden of Eden. This means that before, when we were not eating from the tree of good and evil, we were enjoying when receiving the forces of the Upper Eden, in the vital body, the ethereal body, the lower Eden; thus, the senses of the tree of life were connecting us to the internal worlds. But when we started eating the forbidden fruit (orgasm) from the tree of good and evil (the sexual organs), we were kicked out from within the internal worlds. We still have the Vital Body, yet there are people in this physical world that no longer listen the voice of their Inner God, because they lost connection with the internal worlds, with that “Delight” or Daath, the upper Eden, the superior worlds. There are people who do not even believe in God, even though, thanks to the three primary forces of God, they are physically alive; they do not believe in any creation or God because they are disconnected. They are no longer connected because their vital body (lower Eden) is completely dislocated; they scarcely can sense the vital body, not to mention the Astral, Mental, Causal, and the rest of the Sephiroth above.
So must of humanity is psychologically and physically speaking out of the Lower Garden out of Yesod (Pleasure) and out of the superior Sephiroth, and the Upper Eden, or Daath (Delight). So, we are out of these two Gardens.
People exist who think that this physical world is the only reality and all of those internal and superior worlds are just illusion. So, obviously this society is kicked out from the Garden of Eden. We are identified with this physical world which is completely connected to Klipoth, to Hell, to the inferno or inferior dimensions.
In ancient times, when this entire humanity was in the Garden of Eden of Nature which is located in Yesod (the fourth dimension), Malkuth (the physical body) was within Yesod (the vital body); both were one. Malkuth and Yesod were one garden. Yet, when that humanity fornicated and fell into what we already know, meaning, into animal generation, then Malkuth fell from Yesod. Now Yesod is where it should be, but Malkuth is no longer with it, but below. Malkuth is a fallen Sephirah. The entire planet is fallen. Our physical body is fallen. Now what we have to do is to connect our physicality to Yesod, the Lower Garden of Eden (Pleasure) by learning how to transmute the sexual energy; thus little by little our physical body will reconnect. But in order to perform this reconnection, we have to disconnect the Chavah, the serpent “Ida” from Klipoth, because through the orgasm, “Ida” goes into Klipoth.
Which is the way to disconnect from Klipoth? We disconnect ourselves from Klipoth by no longer fornicating, by means of stopping fornication, the orgasm, the bestial sexual spasm; this is how we cut the connection with Klipoth and start performing “Tob” – that is to accomplish what Genesis says, “and God saw that it was good.”
We have been eating evil from the tree of good and evil throughout a long period of time, through centuries, through eons; now we have to stop, and forget about the evil way and to learn to transmute the sexual force, which is the good way, this, in order to reconnect our psyche to “Tob” to Good, to Gedulah to Goodness; this is how we will return to the lost paradise of Milton, the Lower Eden in Yesod, and to reconnect to Jah-Chavah which is in the Upper Eden, in Daath. This is a long journey, thus we have to learn how to do this reconnection to Yesod and Daath. For this we have given many lectures where we explain how to reconnect ourselves again, because our soul comes from Daath, since the soul is part of that Ruach Elohim. Yet our soul is, as the bible says, in exile, in Egypt, which is Malkuth. It is not the Egypt of the Middle East, but Matzarim, our physical body, which is precisely the correct symbol of Egypt. Thus, we are in exile, and in order to return we need willpower (Moshe). Yes, Moses symbolizes willpower. Thelema, willpower, is the only one that can takes us from within this misery in which we are. Thus, we have to develop our own particular individual (Moshe) Moses.
Do you have questions?
Q. That “Tob” that you are talking about is the same word T-O-B as in mazel tob?
A. Yes, “Mazel tob” means good luck. Tob means good and Mazel means luck.
Evil in Hebrew is “RA,” but nor the “RA” as in Is-ra-el. The “RA” as in Israel is written only with the letter “Reish,” which refers to the positive forces of Christ in the head. “RA” as evil is written with the letters “Reish and Ayin”; this is how you write evil with two letters. That is the evil that we are talking about here. In Hebrew the pronunciation of the words are very different than in English. So when you say “RA” (Reish-Ayin) it might be considered evil or Klipoth, but “RA” as in the middle of the word “Israel” is written only with the letter “Reish” and is positive, which is precisely the “RA”, the light from the Ain Soph Aur, the Solar Force that shines on the crown or Kether; that is the symbol of the letter “Reish.” When you add the letter “Ayin” to the letter “Reish” then it becomes the “Evil-RA” or fire of the Ain Soph Aur that falls into Klipoth which acts as evil or the fire that destroys through devolution. Therefore, “RA” written solely with the letter “Reish” as in Israel is the God “RA,” the solar force of the ancient Egypt of the Pharaohs.
Israel is written with the letters Iod, Shin, Reish, Aleph, and Lamed: the letters Iod and Shin together make the word fire in Hebrew; the letter “Shin” means that such “fire” is the solar force, and Aleph and Lamed means God. Yet if you take that “RA” or “Reish” in the wrong way, then Israel falls into Egypt, Matzarim, the third dimension, because then their eyes (Ayin) are open knowing good and evil. Thus when Israel is in exile, such a letter “Reish” is joined to the letter “Ayin.” This means that their eyes (Ayin) are opened only for the evil fire of Klipoth. This must be Kabbalistically understood in order to comprehend the bible, because in Gnosticism we utilize the word “RA” very much yet, this could be positive or negative.
The mantra RA helps in the awakening of the Kundalini, but it is necessary to know how. This is ignored by the black magicians of the school of Sodom. These black magicians believe that by pronouncing “RA-MA” while standing on their feet every morning and while taking various inhalations of air, they will purify themselves. What they only demonstrate with this is their complete ignorance regarding the wisdom of the Egyptians.
We, the ancient Egyptians, pronounce the mantra RA while in the Egyptian position which is as follows: Our knees are on the ground, the palms of our hands are on the ground and touching each other by the thumbs. Then, our head rests upon the back of our hands. In this position, one pronounces many times the mantra like this: RrrrrrrrrAaaaaaaaaaa. – The Revolution of Beelzebub by Samael Aun Weor
Q. It seems that nowadays many so-called experts in television and radio come up broadcasting some techniques that advice the people so that they can enhance their sex life; they advise that maybe because subconsciously they know that this fornication period leads to nothing good, it is just a repetitive vice.
A. When you said “to enhance the sexual act,” you meant to prolong it?
Q. Yes! as to prolong the sexual act in order to have multiple orgasms.
A. Well, all of those teachings that you find everywhere in order to prolong the sexual act are a doctrine from the Satan or ego of many black magicians from Klipoth, which are individuals that are awakening in evil and for evil, thus they teach that. If you enhance the sexual animal activity then you awaken completely in Klipoth: you become an inhabitant of the abyss. Right now, we are here in Malkuth (the tridimensional world) yet if you awaken through that way which you are explaining, that is, through the enhancement of the sexual animal act, which in this day and age is very common, since now they are teaching prostitution, homosexuality, lesbianism, etc., all of that is for all of you to completely awaken the Consciousness that is trapped within desire. Such persons become inhabitants of Klipoth, Hell, this is, to fall in the abyss completely.
Only by knowing how to act positively in the sexual act and doing it is how we can disconnect our souls from Klipoth; unfortunately, there is a lot of negative information on the internet, TV, schools, colleges, everywhere, that teach you how to enhance your sexual energy in the negative manner.
Q. If is possible for the right way, the positive information to get to people more, since it seems so hopeless. It seems that such a beautiful doctrine is going to ever become aware that every that has been taught is wrong, because if those systems continue to degenerate and degenerate and fight even better in order to hold to the few that they have, or actually to the many the have, I mean, I think about it all of the time, I just to belong to other groups and we just to hold on pamphlets and talk to people and try to move those folks and it is very difficult, you know, I wondering beyond of what we as people can do, you know, is there, is going to be something divine, some divine intervention, is that possible to perhaps reach more people than we have.
A, Yes, this is precisely what we are trying to do, we are doing the impossible in order to reach as many people as we can in order for them to receive this information, but unfortunately the hypnotic power of the tempting serpent of Eden is very powerful. The tempting serpent of Eden has them hypnotized by teaching them that fornication is okay, as you read in the bible the tempting serpent of Eden said: “Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Yes, we now know good and evil, yet the only way in order for us to stop dying, of being under the curse of dying, is by transmuting the sexual energy, which means, only by defeating temptation.
There are many groups from different religions who really sing to the Lord, who love the Lord, but they do not do anything for their Lord because they are taught in the wrong way; therefore to express and to explain this doctrine is necessary. Regrettably, some of them are even afraid when they hear the word Gnosis or the word Kabbalah, since the secret enemy has spread a lot of nonsense, thus they comprehend a little bit about what is written in the bible. So, they are afraid, they think that this knowledge that we are teaching here is from the devil, this is precisely the problem; thus, only the ones who are wise will escape from this havoc. As the axiom states: Many are call but few are chosen.
Q. About the secret enemy that you mention, is it also the secret enemy - who knows about the teaching - going to do what ever it takes in order to deceive people.
A. Yes, of course, the secret enemy is formed by those who precisely are awakening in evil, in Klipoth; they are deceiving humanity and they are now working on it. So, first we have to work against our inner psychological enemies and thereafter against them, yet indeed just by working against ourselves is enough. Because the secret enemy is connected to the ego of every person in Klipoth through their negative actions, thus if we act against our ego, then we disconnect from them. Of course this is done little by little, because we have a lot of ego.
Q. For all of the years that we have living in fornication and now that we arise to transmutation, have we created negative forces that are stopping us, forces that hindered our transmutation? I mean, if I continue on my alchemical work and not falling or not fornicating there will be forces that I already created, which I need more force in order to stop them?
A. Of course, we need a lot of help; this is why we need to work with the three factors of the revolution of the consciousness: the first factor is to perform sexual transmutation, Chastity, sexual Alchemy as we are explaining here; the second factor is to disintegrate those elements which always hinder our spiritual work: lust, anger, envy, pride, greed, gluttony, laziness, etc., which form the devil inside us. Our lust does not care about this doctrine, since it wants to fornicate, because it is an animal element that everybody has and that will fight against us, this is why it is written:
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. - Genesis 3:15
As we explained, the seed of the woman is that seed which is the outcome of transmutation, when we learn how to transmute the sexual energy; that is the good seed.
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. - Galatians 3:16
Nevertheless, the seed of the tempting serpent is there in us also and are all of those psychological lustful elements that we created through the orgasm; now we have to defeat them. For that we need to comprehend them, to analyze them in meditation in order to disintegrate them, and the one who has the power to do that is the woman, the sexual force. She shall stand and bruise the head of the tempting serpent of Eden, because “the woman,” the sexual organ, is the one that created lust. Thus by learning how to transmute the sexual force little by little that woman or sexual force will bruise the head of that tempting serpent of Eden which is in our sexual seed; such a woman is of course the sacred energy of Shechinah, the Kundalini, the positive seed of God that must rise in our spinal medulla, since the negative seed is the tempting serpent of Eden related to the orgasm, to fornication. In other words, always when we start this work we are before two serpents: the tempting serpent of Eden that is all of the time, during night and day before us, and the Serpent of Bronze that was healing the Israelites in the wilderness, which is the Divine Mother Kundalini standing in the spinal medulla; this is precisely the great work, the great fight that any initiate has to perform, until he or she dies completely on the cross, thus by completely defeating that negative force, he or she then resurrects.
Before that, during the path of the cross, you find Judas, Pilate, Caiaphas and all of those mocking people that represent the ego who are against the work that we are doing; we are patiently carrying the cross and receiving spits not only from the outside world but also from our inner psychological world. We want to spiritually advance, but unfortunately we created a lot of negative things, evil things inside, because we ate the forbidden fruit. Now patiently with the help of Christ we have to go up to Golgotha (the hill of the skull, “Golgotha”) which is precisely our head (mind); there we have to work. Remember that on the hill of the skull is where the Lord is crucified, because on here, on the head is where we have the mind, thus we have to mediate in order to comprehend all of that evil that we have. Yet be aware that to the right of the crucified Christ is the good thief that in the cross, the sexual act, steals the sexual energy for the Lord, the one to whom the Lord says: “Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” Yet on the left is the evil thief, which is that ego, that all of us have; this thief utilizes the cross, the sexual act, only for his animal satisfaction, so he does not care, he is the one who say to the Lord: “If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.” But the Lord does not save lustful fornicating elements; instead, he annihilates them inside of us. Understand, the evil thief, lust, has to be annihilated because it belongs to the animal level.
Thus this is what Iod-Chavah said: against all mine (debauched) evil neighbors, that touch the (Genetic) inheritance which I (as Shaddai-El-Chai) have caused my people Ish-Ra-El (the igneous particles of the God “RA”) to inherit (in Yesod-Sex - the Garden of Eden); Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out (from their Lower Eden, their Genitalia) the house of Judah (Leo - the solar bloodstream of Christic light of their hearts) from among them. And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out (from “Delight”, the Upper Eden) I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again (from the Klipothic darkness of lewdness to the light of Christ in Daath), every man to his heritage, and every man to his land. And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of (sexual transmutation of) my people (in Daath-Gnosis), to swear by my name, Jah-Chavah liveth (in Daath and Yesod); as they taught my people (who search for light) to swear by Baal (the lord of lewdness in Klipoth-Hell); then (through scientific Chastity) shall they be built in the midst (of their spinal medulla) of my people (the igneous particles of the God “RA”). But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation (in Hell), said Jah-Chavah. – Jeremiah 12:14-17
