Holy and Blessed be the unutterable name of the Lord. Baruch Ha-Shem Adonai.
The breath relates to the word and this is symbolized in the Rune Hagal of the Futharkh or Nordic Alphabet. We find the glyph of the Rune Hagal in many religions and philosophies, even in the center of the Aztec Calendar.
As you can see in the graphic, the Rune Hagal is represented by the letter H, and by and the letter X cut by a vertical or horizontal line in its middle. The X crossed either by a vertical or horizontal line forms the six-pointed star, which is a symbol that we find in many religions. We find the six-pointed star among the Hebrews, where is called the star of David, as well as in the Tibetan pantheon and Hindu pantheon, and in the Nordic pantheon as the Rune Hagal.
The H, or Rune Hagal, is a silent, sighing, syllabling vowel. In esotericism, we study the letter H, as well as the letters M and S, as vowels. What are vowels for us? They are perfect sounds of the mouth: E I O U A M S, pronounced by the breath, which is the H, a deep sigh. As you can see, this is precisely what we find symbolized in the center of the Aztec calendar, where the Rune Hagal is represented by an X formed by the 4 squares around the face of Tonatiuh. Among the Aztecs, Tonatiuh is the name of the sun, which represents our Root Race. Tonatiuh is in the very center of the Aztec calendar. It shows two paws that are squeezing two human hearts. The two paws are at both ends of the horizontal line that cuts the X, forming the Rune Hagal.
The Rune Thorn—which in German is called Dorn, a symbol of willpower—is above the face of Tonatiuh. In the center of the Aztec Calendar is that glyph in the shape of the Rune Hagal, which in the Nahuatl language is called Nahui-Ollin (Four-Movement), meaning, the four (X cross) expresses the movement, the will, the power of the two claws - masculine, feminine. This androgynous solar willpower emanates from a trinity, represented by the apex of the triangle above the head of Tonatiuh; this triangle represents the Rune Thorn. Movement is related with the Rune Hagal, which is formed by the X cut by a horizontal line, which together forms the six-pointed star. The six-pointed star, the Star of David, is represented in many ways, yet here its shape is hidden in the glyph in the center of the Aztec Calendar. The two claws or paws and the four squares are forming the Rune Hagal, the six-pointed star. And above Tonatiuh's head is the thorn, which symbolizes divine willpower.
Why is the Rune Thorn above the head? It is because in the pineal gland we have the atom of the Holy Spirit, which in Hinduism is called Shiva. In Greek mythology, this Shiva or Holy Spirit is represented by Neptune. This is why in Astrology it is stated that Neptune governs the pineal gland.
The hormones of the pineal gland are directly related with the hormones of the sexual glands, the creative waters, the human waters. That is why Neptune is the God of the Ocean—not only the oceanic forces of the planet, but also those of our own particular planet, called the human body. The forces of the pineal gland move the sexual energy, the waters of genesis, the genes in our sexual organs. This is very important to understand because we have to study the relationship between the sexual force and the pineal gland with the word. All of this is enclosed or hidden with this marvelous Rune Hagal.
We took the symbol of the Rune Hagal from the center of the Aztec Calendar in order to explain its mysteries, so that you can see how these are marvelously represented in that Aztec glyph.
If you observe, the face in the middle—the Fifth Sun, Tonatiuh—has an open mouth from which is protruding a triangular tongue, or a tongue in a triangular shape. This tongue represents the three primary forces in Daath that we always talk about in relation with the Tree of Life. If you are familiar with the Tree of Life, you know that it is represented by ten Sephiroth. Tonatiuh's tongue relates to Daath, underneath the first triangle of the Tree of Life, which in Kabbalah is called the Logoic Triangle (triangle of the word), formed by Kether, Chokmah, and Binah. These names translated into English mean "Crown," "Wisdom," and "Intelligence" (though sometimes Binah is "Understanding" or "Comprehension").
So this Logoic Triangle—which represents the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in Christianity—is also above Tonatiuh's head. Its apex represents the Rune THORN, Divine Will, also represented in that triangle. Yet, the tongue of Tonatiuh is showing how these three primary forces from above create through the power of the word in Daath. Remember that it is written in the gospel of John:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1:1
As you can see JOHN is written with an H in the middle. The H in John is the Rune Hagal, which symbolizes the breath of God. When you want to make the sound of the H, you just emit a sigh. HhhhAaaaaaaa. That sigh, the H, is the symbol of the breath of God.
In Kabbalah the H, the sigh, is represented by the letter (ה) Hei. The letter Hei is the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Remarkably, the letter Hei of the Hebrew alphabet—the sigh, the H—is spelled with two Hebrew letters. Indeed, in order to spell Hei, we have to write the letter Aleph next to the letter Hei. The spelling of Hei (הא) hides a very profound and significant element that we must understand.
Aleph, which is the letter A, is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and many alphabets. We already gave a lecture related to the letter Aleph, but here we will synthesize that the shape of the letter Aleph symbolizes the three primary forces—represented in the tongue of Tonatiuh and in the Rune Thorn above its head—which means that the Divine Will—above the head—expresses itself through Daath, the word (its tongue).
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1: 1
The Word, the Logos, is a trinity. First Logos, Second Logos, Third Logos; the three together are called LOGOI (plural for Logos). They are the three primary forces that create. Together they form the Holy Triamatzikamno; this word means the law of three, the law that creates. So as you can see, the law of three in Daath expresses itself through the tongue that represents the word.
The letter Hei, which represents the breath, is the first sound that any baby emits when is born; namely, AAAAAHHHHH (הא); observe that behind Aleph, the AAAAA sound, is the Hei, the HHHHHH, the breath. This is because the baby first has to breathe the air in order to emit the sound of the "A." The breath, the "H," enters the lungs and thereafter the sound of the A emerges from his lungs. Thus (אה) AAAHHH is the first sound and the breath of life. "AH" together form the sound of the wind. This is very important to understand because many books state that in the beginning was the word.
The Popol-Vuh states:
This is the account of how all was in suspense, all calm, in silence; all motionless, still, and the expanse of the sky was empty.
This is the first account, the first narrative. There was neither man, nor animal, birds, fishes, crabs, trees, stones, caves, ravines, grasses, nor forests; there was only the sky.
The surface of the earth had not appeared. There was only the calm sea and the great expanse of the sky.
There was nothing brought together, nothing which could make a noise, nor anything which might move, or tremble, or could make noise in the sky.
There was nothing standing; only the calm water, the placid sea, alone and tranquil. Nothing existed. There was only immobility and silence in the darkness, in the night. Only the creator, the Maker, Tepeu, Gucumatz, the Forefathers, were in the water surrounded with light. They were hidden under green and blue feathers, and were therefore called Gucumatz. By nature they were great sages and great thinkers. In this manner the sky existed and also the Heart of Heaven, which is the name of God and thus He is called.
Then came the Word. Tepeu and Gucumatz came together in the darkness, in the night, and Tepeu and Gucumatz talked together. They talked then, discussing and deliberating; they agreed; they united their Words and their thoughts.
Then while they meditated, it became clear to them that when dawn would break, man must appear. Then they planned the creation, and the growth of the trees and the thickets and the birth of life and the creation of man. Thus it was arranged in the darkness and in the night by the Heart of Heaven who is called Huracán.
The first is called Caculhá Huracán. The second is Chipi-Caculhá. The third is Raxa-Caculhá. And these three (this Trinity) are the Heart of Heaven.
Then Tepeu and Gucumatz came together; then they conferred about life and light, what they would do so that there would be light and dawn, who it would be who would provide food and sustenance.
Thus let it be done! Let the emptiness (the Ain Soph) be filled! Let the water recede and make a void, let the earth appear and become solid; let it be done. Thus they spoke. Let there be light, let there be dawn in the sky and on the earth! There shall be neither glory nor grandeur in our creation and formation until the human being is made, man is formed. So they spoke.
Then the earth was created by them. So it was, in truth, that they created the earth. Earth! they said, and instantly it was made.
Understand that what the Popol-Vuh states is a cosmic process, which is not done mechanically (without intelligence) in an instant, in a second.
We have to understand that we are studying the larynx, the throat, which is related with the rune Hagal, because from it, from the breath of God, from the lungs, the word is uttered. From the Word emerges everything; in other words, from the Word emerges all the geometrical letters. That is why the book of Genesis states:
In the beginning God created (השמים) "the heavens" and (הארץ) "the earth."
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. – Genesis 1: 1-3
As you can see, the Hebrew word (הארץ) "the Earth" has the "H" and the "A" (הא) in the beginning, and thereafter (רץ) "Rets," which means "Herald, Watcher, Overseer".
Yet, if we disclose the letters of the Hebrew word (השמים) "The Heavens" in two words, we then read (השמ) Hashem, meaning "The Name" and (ים) Im, meaning "Ocean, Sea, Water." Thus, (השמים) can also be translated as "The Name in the Ocean, Sea, or Water."
(ים) "Im" is what the Hindus call the Akasha, which is the prime substance that fills the endless space (the Ain Soph). Thus,
"In the beginning the Elohim created by means of (השמ) the Name in (ים) the Water and by means of (הא) "the breath and the Logos" of the (רץ) Herald of the dawn. Yet, the breath and Logos of the Herald of the dawn was without form, and void, since darkness was upon the face of the deep. ..."
So (ים) the substance, which fills the empty endless space, the universe, hears the name, which is (השמ) "Hashem." Listen: Hhhaaa Shem. In Hebrew, you pronounce the letter Hei or H as Hhhaa (a sigh), meaning "The," because from the breath emerges everything. (השמים) Ha Shamim means "The Heavens," but also means "The name in the ocean" of life or when read backwards: "Who Moshe?" And when "The name in the ocean" of life is uttered, then (הארץ) "The Earth" or "The breath and Logos of the Herald ("Who Moshe?")—the Holy Spirit" appears.
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Those heavens are the powers (runes) hidden within the Rune Hagal, the "H", the Hei (הא), Breath and Logos of the (רץ) Herald of the dawn, which we are explaining here.
The sound of the Hei (הא), or the letter H, or Rune Hagal, comes from the glottis. The glottis is the membrane we have at the back of the tongue which is like a little mouth. If you observe a graphic of the glottis, it is behind the tongue and at the very top of the larynx; it is where we find the vocal cords. The glottis resembles the feminine sexual organ. If we make a similitude of the throat with the feminine sexual organ, you will discover something amazing. For instance, the sounds of the words that I am emitting right now are going into your ears.
Between the airspace—out of our head—and the throat exist certain canals of communication which are very fine tubes known as Eustachian Tubes, which are at the left and right side of the nasal cavities; these put the airspace—out of our head—in open communication with our interior after passing through the ears, nostrils, and the pharynx—we can see this in any anatomy picture. In an identical manner, the Eustachian tubes are similar to the Fallopian tubes; that is, the feminine ovaries with the uterus resemble the Eustachian tubes and the larynx. Thus, the Vulva has the shape of our mouth (organ of language) and the opening of the glottis (its vibratory source) resembles the very entrance of the sexual organ in the feminine sex.
Obviously the vulva resembles the mouth. This is why we state in Gnosticism that the mouth is a feminine organ that creates the word.
Let us study the similitude. If we analyze it, we arrive at the conclusion that the uterus receives the sperm through the opening of the vagina. The ovum that descends from the Fallopian tubes receives the sperm in order for them, together, to form the first germinal cell that will eventually be the fetus that will develop for nine months within the womb. Thereafter the physical body, the human body, will eventually appear from that feminine organ. In the same manner we have to understand that when the bible states that in the beginning God created with the Word, this does not mean in one second. Understand that the Word is a process of the sound that goes in and out of the throat. This is why in Kabbalah we place the mysterious Sephirah Daath, which means knowledge, in the throat. Because in the throat is the power of God. The power of the Word is with God. And the Word, the Logos, is God.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1: 1
So the triangular tongue in the very center of the Aztec calendar represents the trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the Three Logoi; the Three Akashic Breaths—creating by means of the throat in Daath. The rings around its ears are adornments, earrings, which symbolize that power, the waves that enter, which is the sound that enters into the head, in order for the Word to become flesh. Behold, beneath the nostrils you find that other adornment, or device that symbolizes the Three Akashic Breaths, the power of the breath. You all know that the nostrils and the ears are connected. If you want to blow through your ears, you just close your nostrils and your mouth and blow. You can do this because there is a cavity that unites the nostrils and the Eustachian tubes with the larynx and the lungs. We talk extensively about that power of the letter H, the sigh, the breath of God, in the lecture on the letter Aleph. In that lecture, we explain how it is related with the zodiacal sign of Taurus, yet the triangle above its head represents the will of Aries, the fire; it also represents the Rune Thorn. Aries is willpower, the warrior of mars, and in the throat is Taurus, which is represented by a feminine force, Venus, because the larynx, the throat, is a feminine organ, through which the Word, the Son, becomes flesh, or the universe.
If we analyze the zodiacal signs, we find that after Taurus comes the sign of Gemini, which is symbolized by the couple, the twins, represented by Adam and Eve, or by Father and Mother. Adam-Eve; Father-Mother. And where are the father and mother, or Adam and Eve, represented? They are represented in the unuttered name Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei. The Iod is the masculine willpower. The Hei is the feminine throat. The Vav is Adam, the man. And the second Hei is Eve, the woman.
The throat and the genitalia in the human body are the basis for the presence of two letter Hei's, or two Latin H's, in the Holy Name of God: יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, the famous Tetragrammaton. As you can see, יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei has two ה Hei's because even in the human organism we have two Hei's; namely, one ה Hei in the throat and the other ה Hei in the sexual organs, even though the Hei in the sexual organs is divided into two sexes. Up above, in the head, the two masculine and feminine forces act through the word. When we are talking, we are acting with the two polarities above (in the head). Thus, we talk with the two Hei's of our own Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, which is translated in the bible as Jehovah, Yod-Havah, or Yod-Heveh—the duality, which manifests through the Word. So Iod-Hei is father-mother and Vav-Hei is Adam-Eve or man-woman.
This is how we understand why the mystery of creation is related with the Rune Hagal, the six-pointed star, because the one that performs this transformation in the human body is the other will. We have two wills here, in ourselves; namely, the will of God, which is above, and the human will below, which is in the heart. The will below is called Tiphereth, beauty, which is in the very center of the Tree of Life. Tiphereth/Beauty is represented by the human soul, the psyche—part of the human soul, which is inside of us—it is also call the essence and relates to the sixth Sephirah of the Tree of Life, which in the Rune Hagal is represented by the two hearts which the two paws are squeezing in the center of the Aztec calendar. Those two hearts are the duality Adam-Eve, represented in the sign of Gemini by the twins. Gemini is always represented by the duality, man-woman, the twins. The sign of Gemini is related with the shoulders, with the arms, with the hands, and with the lungs. We see now how this is intimately related: the lungs are obviously related with the breath that we take from the nostrils, and with the breath, the air, the wind that we breathe, we express the knowledge, Daath, through the throat. The two hands squeezing human hearts are showing us that we have to exercise willpower. To do that we have to do, that is, to kill the self-willed represented by the heart, by the trapped soul, which is only willing to do evil things, or in other words, things which are not related to the spirit. We are always willing to do things, in this physical world, related with materialism. But few of us are ready to do things of the Spirit. Thus, for that we have to sacrifice our hearts, meaning our own will. We do it when we sacrifice our heart, our own will, for the will of God.
May the Angel (HAGAL הגאל) “the redeemer” of all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be uttered on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac (Chesed and Geburah); and let them grow into a multitude in the midst (spinal medulla) of the earth (physical body). – Genesis 48: 16
Through the Aztec Nahui-Ollin we understand that prayer of (HAGAL הגאל) the Redeemer when he is kneeled on the Mount of Olives, making the Rune Thorn (willpower) with his joined hands on a rock, pointing them up to heaven and saying:
Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. – Luke 22: 42
As you can see, two wills are mentioned here in that prayer he is uttering with his throat. The throat is the organ (cup) that we use in order to pray to God, and the throat (cup) is the organ that God uses in order to express himself through us, through the word. Remember that the Word (the Logos) became flesh in the body of Jesus, in the body of Krishna, in the body of Quetzalcoatl, in the body of Muhammad, in the body of all of those masters that incarnated the Word. Samael Aun Weor incarnated the Word; which is the mystery of Aun Weor.
Whosoever knows, the word gives power to. No one has uttered it, no one will utter it, except the one in whom the Word is incarnated. The essence of the Word is power, is omnipotence. - Rosicrucian Novel by Arnold Krumm-Heller
In the Rune Hagal you see how the four elements (fire, air, water, and earth) represented in the X are controlled by the horizontal line with two hearts that represent the will of God, when, through the duality (Adam and Eve), we fortify the will of God in ourselves. How do we fortify the will of God within us? We do it through the will of Adam and Eve, who are Iod-Havah, represented in the two hearts. This is done when we sublimate the sexual force (Ida) the "Cup" of "Mary Magdalene", which is related to Jesus in the pituitary and pineal gland (Pingala). When in the sexual act the couple, the twins of Gemini, transmute their sexual force by means of their will, symbolized in the claws or paws of Tonatiuh, which represent the will of God. Eagle claws or Tiger paws are the representation of the will of God.
Ostensibly, Xolotl-Lucifer-Prometheus is the double of Quetzalcoatl. Xolotl-Lucifer-Prometheus is the prince of light and darkness, having absolute power over the heavens, the earth and the infernos. Xolotl-Lucifer-Prometheus, the divine Daemon is the reflection of God within us, here and now. Xolotl-Lucifer-Prometheus can confer upon us power, wisdom and divine likeness. Eritis sicut dei, “You shall be like Gods.” - Genesis 3: 5
The Philosophical Stone (Lucifer-Xolotl) lies in the depths of our own sexual organs, through it we reconcile the opposites — coincidentia oppositorum — or the enemy brothers. “You shall be like Gods.” - Samael Aun Weor
In Latin, the will of God expressed in the sexual organs is called Lucifer. In Hebrew it is called Shatan. And in the Aztec and Mayan symbolism, it is represented by the dog and the tiger. In the Hindu pantheon you also see how Shiva, which is related with the pineal gland, is always seated on the skin of a tiger, meaning that all the strength he is receiving, that he shows in his trident (symbol of the trinity), is taken from the paws, or hands, of the tiger. These paws represent Ida and Pingala united in the Muladhara Chakra; they represent Adam and Eve in the sexual act. Thus, in order to acquire the trident the couple needs to learn how to sublimate the fire of Lucifer, the devil within us. This is why there are few initiates—because most people throw the fire out of their bodies through the orgasm when they go into the sexual act. This is why the paws of the tiger represent the animal sexual force, the animal will that we use in the sexual act in the wrong way, in the animal way. But if that will is squeezed in the heart, this means that we are sacrificing our own animal self-will by use of our human will, which is represented by Tiphereth, in order for the will of God to manifest through us. Thus, this is the great symbol of the paws depicted at both ends of the horizontal line of the X that in the Aztec Calendar represents the Rune Hagal.
Now, in order to perform this marvelous transformation, you need to use the throat. This is why it is stated that the sexual act is the most powerful way to pray to God. Since, in the sexual act the power of God expresses itself through the throat and through the genitalia. Unfortunately, the only thing that intellectual animals know is how to fornicate through the genitalia and through the throat, expressing filthiness. So in the sexual act we have to learn how to use the word in the right way, and thus transmute, sublimate the libido. This is the Cross of Initiation that is represented in the center of the Aztec Calendar, which is the same X cross that Xolotl-Lucifer-Prometheus is carrying above. And this is why the Star of David, as we explain in other lectures, is represented by two triangles. The upper triangle is the man. The apex of that triangle is the phallus and the lower vertices represent the testicles. So that is the man. The woman is represented by the opposite triangle; namely, the ovaries above and the uterus below. So the six-pointed star, the two triangles united, represents the sexual act. It is also the symbol of other things, but the former description is the basic meaning in relation with the Rune Hagal.
That is why when man and woman are in the sexual act, the two triangles are united below. And in order to sublimate the force they have to pronounce the word above—this is the triangular tongue which Tonatiuh is showing us—in order to control the four elements of nature.
Now listen, the Rune Hagal is related with the forces of nature. The physical body is only the inferior part of the vital body. In Kabbalah, the physical body is Malkuth (the kingdom), the lowest Sephirah of the Tree of Life. Above it is the Sephirah Yesod, which is the superior aspect of the physical body, called the vital body. If you develop a little bit of clairvoyance, you can see that around our physicality the vital body looks like an aura of blue light; this is because the vital body is made of energy. It is also called the ethereal body.
The ethereal body is made of five ethers. From the root of our nose to the top of our head, we find the Akashic Ether, which is that primordial water that we stated appears in the beginning: the word "IM" (ים) appears in the book of Genesis. This word is hidden within the word (השמים) "the heavens". The heavens (השמים), "Ha-shamayim" means: The word (השם - the name) in the (ים) ocean. That ocean is (ים) the Akasha. There in "Ha-shamayim" we also see the word HAAA in the "Hei" (אה) or the H, which is the breath that hides the name (שם) or the fiery breath floating on the waters. In the beginning the Spirit (the fiery breath) of God was hovering upon the waters.
In relation with our physical body, those Akashic waters relate to the Cerebrospinal fluid. Yet in the vital body we have those waters called Akasha. And the mantra that resounds in the top of our head, the Akasha, is H-A: HA. The spelling is similar to the spelling of the Hebrew letter "Hei" spelled Hei and Aleph. Yet, the mantra "HA" is Sanskrit, from Hinduism.
When you say "Ha, Ha, Ha" it vibrates in the brain. And the elementals, the souls, which are related with those primordial waters of the endless space, are called Punctas. The Punctas of the ether are like sparks of light within the ocean of life. You can see those sparks of light in the ocean of life when you concentrate your sight and see the atmosphere. These sparks always shine when descending in the atmosphere. They shine not only in the atmosphere, but also in space, because the holy endless space is filled with Akasha.
Thus, according to Hinduism, the Gods are ethereal vibrations hovering above our physical body, or better said, the Gods as Tattwics vibrations in our vital body hover above our physical body, since in us the vital body is the symbol of the Akashic waters where the physical body floats. Everywhere we move the physical body, the water called the vital body, or ethereal force, moves with it. If we take that ethereal force from our physicality, our physical body will die. It will collapse instantaneously, because Akasha is the life that sustains all the elements in our physical body.
In India, the God, or better said, the angel, that controls those forces in our body is named Sadashiva, who is Shiva. Sadashiva relates to the forces of the ether. Below Sadashiva we find Ishvara. Ishvara controls the forces of the air, called the tattva Vayu in Sanskrit. Vayu, the air, the breath, is controlled by Ishvara from the root of our nose to our heart. Is it not significant that the tattva of the air, the breath, is found between the Chakra of the Heart and the root of the nose? And that is precisely what we are addressing here—the hearts squeezed by the tiger paws. That air we breathe is represented in the mouth and the nostrils, and is related to the Rune Hagal. This means that every prayer that we perform, whether from Hinduism, Judaism, Confucianism, or any other religion, is always pronounced through the mouth, through the word, because it is through the word that we communicate with God. Remember that Jesus of Nazareth, the incarnation of the Word, the Cosmic Christ, said:
No one comes unto the Father, but by me. – John 14: 6
The former quotation is an esoteric statement, yet people think Jesus is addressing his own personality, his own physicality, and that is wrong. Jesus is saying it with his throat. The Word of God is expressing itself through Jesus' self, through his mouth, and that uttered Word is precisely what states: "No one comes unto the Father, but by me." Some people say, "Jesus is the only one who said it." No, this is wrong, because Jesus is not the only one who said it. Sadly, they do not understand that Jesus represents the Logos incarnated, the Word made flesh.
But as many as received him (the Word), to them gave he (the Word) power to become the children of God, even to them that have faith on (שם ה - Ha Shem) his name (the Word): Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word was made flesh (in Jesus of Nazareth), and dwelt among us. – John 1: 12-14
Whosoever knows, the word gives power to. No one has uttered it, no one will utter it, except the one in whom the Word is incarnated. The essence of the Word is power, is omnipotence. - Rosicrucian Novel by Arnold Krumm Heller
So when you kneel, whether you are a Muslim, a Taoist, a Buddhist, etc. and pray, or utter with your mouth, mantras, words, etc., remember, these represent the Logos, which is Christ, who is the Son that is emerging from your feminine throat. Because the word uttered through the throat is the Son of God. If we have filthy words, we are polluting the Son of God. This is why it is written "In the beginning was the Word." Thus, through the Word, through praying, we are in communication with our God. So, whoever your God is, whatever you believe in, it is through the Son, the Word—expressed through the larynx, which is the Hei, the "H", the breath, the Rune Hagal, its divine mother—that we manifest his mystery. Let us pray...
This is why we Gnostics state: It does not matter what your religion is; if you want to communicate with your Inner God, then the Son, which is the Logos, is the only way. Yet people do not understand. They think that we are talking about the man Jesus that came 2011 years ago. They think that we have to do it only through him. They think that we have to believe in him, as the fundamentalists state. They do not understand the hidden mystery of the Word that was hidden within the body of Jesus, which was hidden also within the body of Krishna, and within the body of any other Christified Master. This is how we understand what the Word, Christ, the Son, is. The Word is related with the heart, with the breath, with the tattva Vayu, Ishvara.
We have now to exhaust the question of the mystical meaning of "Primordial Chaos" and of the Root-Principle, and show how they were connected in the ancient philosophies with Akasha.... of which Ishvara is the male aspect...
Upper AEther or Akasha, is the celestial virgin and mother of every existing form and being, from whose bosom, as soon as "incubated" by the Divine Spirit, are called into existence Matter and Life, Force and Action. AEther is the Aditi of the Hindus, and it is Akasha. – Secret Doctrine
This is why it is stated that Ishvara is the origin of the universe. In Hinduism Ishvara is associated with Vishnu, who is the Son, the Word, of the Hindu Trinity: Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva or Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Can you see the beauty of this? The mantra that we pronounce in order to express or to manipulate the forces of the air is Yah: praise always (יה)Y-A.
Praise (יה) Y-A, הללויה Hallelu-Yah, because the three lines of the A ( א - Aleph) in the spelling of the letter “Hei” (הא) in Hallelu-Yah symbolizes the Logoic Trinity (יהו of יהוה) hidden within הללויה Hallelu-Yah. The mantras (הא) Hah and (יה) Yah are In Hah-llelu-Yah. So Hah and Yah are the Sanskrit mantras related with the ether and with the air respectively. The Hebrew letters: אחה Aleph, Chet, Hei, are guttural letters which "together" are created in the throat.
In Kabbalah Yah (the secret of Aba and Ima, which are יה Yod-Hei) relates to (הללו - Hallelu) “those” male (ו) female (ה) aspects of (הא - Hah), the trinity in “Aleph” that are blown by (ה-Hei), the throat. The two letters lamed of הללויה Hallelu-Yah relate to the heavenly union of Adam (ו) and (ה) Eve (Vav and Hei) male female that relates to Tiphereth and Daath respectively; the secret of a heart (Tiphereth) that understands the throat (Daath) knowledge, (לב מבין דעת lev meivin daath) as it is written:
And (אדם - Adam) (the breath of א Aleph in דם “Dam”, the blood) knew (חוה - Eve) his wife (the throat) again; and she bare a Son (the Word), and called his name שת Seth (שת the mystery of Shin “INRI”, the fire on the Tav, the cross). - Genesis 4: 25. [Observe the Hebrew spelling of חוה "Eve", it has the labiodental letter vav (Tiphereth-the heart) in the middle of the gutturals Chet and Hei].
And Moses made a (נחש serpent) of (נחשת brass), and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a (נחש serpent) had bitten any (איש man), when he beheld (נחשת ה נחש the serpent of brass), he (חי lived). – Numbers 21: 9. [Observe that the Hebrew words נחש "Serpent" and שת "Seth" together form the word נחשת "Brass"]
The mantra Hah, which vibrates in the brain of the vital body, relates to the Akashic waters (semen) in the physical body, in the sexual organs, as already explained. That is the relationship of Shiva with the sexual power. Yet, the mantra Yah, Ishvara, is related with the heart and with the breath. We explained in other lectures that when we breathe, we put the air in our lungs and the lungs purify the blood of our heart and make it purified blood. We always perform this breathing system physically, even if we do not consciously intervene. Here we find the relationship of the heart with the air, with the lungs, with Gemini, the duality, since we have two lungs.
So then, this marvelous Rune Hagal, the "H", the breath with the sound AAAAA, which is the Hebrew Hei and Aleph, pronounced by Tonatiuh' s mouth, relates with the power of the elements in the vital body.
From the heart to the sexual organs, we find the element fire. The fire (tattva Tejas) is related with the digestive system. In Kabbalah the letter “ש” Shin symbolizes the Fire that digests the forces that we have in the solar plexus. Ra is the mantra, the letters R and A: RRRRRAAAAA. This reminds us of the sun Ra in Egypt.
The mystery of “ש” The Fire האש "Ha-esh":
He took not away the pillar of (the head) the cloud by day, nor the pillar of (the spine) האש the fire by night, within the people. – Exodus 13: 22
The solar masculine fire איש of אל God in the head ראש “Rash” is ישראל Israel.
Thus, Israel is the male fire that joins - in the heart – האשה the feminine fire that rises from sex.
האשה is also “the feminine fire” located in the solar plexus. האשה is אש "fire" between the two ה “Hei” (throat and sex).
משה Moses is “ש” the feminine אשה "fire", the breath ה “Hei” of "Shin" that rises from “מ” Mim the sexual waters to meet the “ראש” the fire of the head in the upper ה “Hei”, the throat.
So the mantra Ra is related with "ראש" the male fire of the head, the archetype that controls האשה "the feminine fire" in our body, which in Hinduism is called Rudra (the Roarer). Rudra is the fire in our organism. Rudra abides in the area called the solar plexus. Solar means solar fire, solar force, the fire of the sun.
We find that from the coccyx, or from the sexual organs, to the knees, we have the tattva Apas, the element water. The element water has its archetype in the vital body, which is an intelligence that we have to learn how to use. In Hinduism it is called Narayana.
In Sanskrit, another name for water is 'Naara'. The Supreme Lord Vishnu whose resting place ('Ayana') is 'Naara' is therefore called Naarayana. "Naara" also means the living entities (Jivas). Therefore, another meaning of Naarayana is 'resting place for all living entities'. The close association of Narayana with water explains the frequent depiction of Narayana in Hindu art as standing or sitting on an ocean. Another important translation of Narayana is "The Supreme Being who is the foundation of all men."
So Narayana relates to the forces of the water in relation with our sexual force, which encompasses the area of the legs, thighs, or femurs to the knees. The mantra or syllable that vibrates in that area is VAH. Observe that the Kabbalistic way to write Vah—which means 'and' in Hebrew—is with the letter Vav, which is always related with the sexual hormones and the fire in the spinal column: Vav.
(ואד = vah-ad) “And a mist” goes up from the earth (from knees to sex), and watered the whole face of האדמה “the ground” (the physicality). – Genesis 2: 6
Finally, from the knees to the feet vibrates the element earth, whose archetypical God is Brahma and which represents the entire physical body. However, in the vital body, from the knees to the feet, it relates to the tattva Prithvi, the earth. Remember that the earth is represented in the bones and muscles, and in all the tissues of the physical body, the earth, which is Brahma (from "Brih," which means "to grow" or "to expand").
השמ-ים = And (Abrahm - Brahma) the Ruach Elohim (השמ) hovered upon the face of the (ים) waters. – Genesis 1: 2
According to Hindu mythology, Brahma emerges from the silver navel of Narayana. This simply means that “LA” the creative forces of the earth in the physical body develop from the water, the sexual force of Yesod, the vital body when we learn NOT to fornicate. "Daath" is in the meaning of this symbol. “LA” means NO in Hebrew.
And of the tree of (Daath) "knowledge" of good and evil, you לא לאכול ממנו La, Lacul mmnu “shall not eat of it.” – Genesis 2: 17
So that is how the vital body is divided into the five ethers; namely Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. We have already discussed the mantras of four of the elements. The mantra associated with earth is LLLLA. The L, "Lamed," touches heaven and earth, and the A always represents the trinity. Note how each of the mantras has the vibration of the A, the Trinity: LA, VA, RA, YA, HA. This is how we have to understand the symbols represented in our physicality.
For instance, here we see the symbol of the physical body performing the Rune Hagal, or showing through our physicality how the Rune Hagal is performed by forming the six-pointed star. The geometrical sign in the left of that bodily-symbol represents the geometrical forms that emerge from the word. Thus, through the word and through the Rune Hagal is how we control the forces of nature and the universe in our bodies. Remember that our vital body, which is the superior aspect of our physical body, has the five forces, the five ethers, from the feet to the top of the head; namely Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. So this is how we, through the Rune Hagal and through the vital body, take advantage of the forces of nature in our physicality.
The ether is controlled by Indra; the air is controlled by Paralda; the fire is controlled by Agni; the water by Varuna; and the earth by Cham-Gam, or Gob. So these are angels, Gods, or Devas; there are many of them in the ethereal atmosphere. Every religion talks about Angels or Devas or Gods, Elohim, whatever we want to name them. They are controlling the forces of nature. So when we perform the Rune Hagal we put our archetypes—which we already named: Sadashiva, Ishvara, Rudra, Narayana, Brahma—in contact with the forces of the angels of whatever deity we are going to evoke, whatever our religion might be; since every single religion worshiped the Gods; whether they call them angels or saints or masters. Every religion has there own masters.
For instance, in the Aztec pantheon you find that the God of the water is named Tlaloc. The God of the fire is named Huehueteotl and Huitzilopochtli, God of the Sun. Xochipilli, the God of beauty and the earth and spring, and Ehecatl, God of the Air, is worshiped among the Aztecs in Mexico. Huitzilopochtli, Tlaloc, Huehueteotl, Ehecatl, Quetzalcoatl. So, many other angels related with the elements of nature are found in every pantheon. If you study Christianity, you find the angels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Anael related with the four elements. We need to worship them in order to put our word into activity, because every single thing in nature is geometry.
For instance, I remember an experience I had out of my body; where within my internal bodies I saw the current of sound within the Akasha. The Akasha fills the outer, endless space, thus the current of sound was emerging from it. If we see it physically is like emptiness, a current of sound emerging from emptiness. Yet that flow of sound is the breath of God, which is the Rune Hagal, the H, the Hebrew Hei. That is called the current of sound. Thus, when I observed that current, or flow of energy, Akashic force, I saw geometrical figures in different shapes: triangles, squares, hexagons, pentagons, etc. It was like the grains of salt that you see in a salty river flowing into the ocean. That salt is geometrical. And it floats in the water. This is how we have to understand it, physically speaking. Yet in the superior dimensions that flow of sound, the blowing salts—which were geometrical figures—were playing a symphony. The symphony was the seventh symphony of Beethoven. Indeed, this is what I heard. I am not stating here that only that symphony is played in that flow of sound. Every single symphony is a different river. So Beethoven brought that sound here from the Akasha and wrote the notes on the paper. The nine symphonies are sounds flowing from the endless space, from the nine spheres of the cosmos. It was so amazing to hear the sound of the seventh symphony of Beethoven played by the Akashic flow of sound. Now, this can be explained scientifically, because if somebody is recording this lecture on a tape recorder, and if the tape is observed under a microscope, they will see that the words I am pronouncing are recorded on that tape with geometrical figures. This is how, when the geometrical figures are played in the tape recorder, they repeat the same sounds or words that I am uttering. So it is scientifically demonstrated that word and geometry are the same. Every single geometrical figure is a letter, is a symbol, is a sound. When those letters or archetypes are combined we form syllables. And when we combine the syllables, we form words, phrases.
Therefore, when God said, "Earth," the geometrical figures of sound emerged from the Akashic Ocean (ים) "Im"—this took time—within the endless space, in order to fill it, in order to make the prime substance concrete.
So, in the beginning God created with the power of the Word, (שם ה- Ha Shem) the name in the waters.
(בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים) "Berashith Bera Elohim at Ha-Shem-Im"
That is how we have to understand this verse.
So, when we are pronouncing the syllables HA, YA, RA, VA, LA we must put our attention and concentration and imagination on what we are doing. When we are asking, when we are praying, the Word brings the forces related with those vibrations to our body.
Likewise, when we are transmuting our sexual energy, we bring the forces of God within us. God is force and forces. God is not a person, but the intelligence that moves the Word. Thus, in that way we are similar to God. Unfortunately, we do not create like Gods because we only create negative things through our psyche because we fornicate. We do not know how to utilize the sexual creative force in the way that God does, when creating beautiful things like nature. Observe every tree, every flower; everything in nature is a crystallization of the Word. You can see in a microscope, in the very depth of anything is geometry, is the Word, the sound. Every single thing emits a sound, sounds which we call the vowels. This is why in the Futharkh, or Nordic alphabet, the Rune Hagal encloses all the mysteries of the Word, all the ways through which we communicate, not only in this physical world, but in the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh dimensions, because the Word encloses all of that. And this is precisely what we have to visualize when we pronounce the Word. This is why the Rune Hagal is marvelous.
Master Samael Aun Weor teaches six mantras related to the Rune Hagal, the six-pointed star. This is written in his book Gnostic Magic of the Runes. The mantras are Achaxucanac, Achxuraxan, Achgnoya, Xiraxi, Iguaya, Hiraji. Pronounce them with faith. These are Mayan mantras that bring through the Rune Hagal whatever force you are invoking from the elements. Master Samael Aun Weor writes the following in his book "Gnostic Magic of the Runes":
All ye worthy ones! Those who have reached the Second Birth (meaning, those who have created the astral, mental, and causal bodies within, the twice born), have dissolved the ego (have dissolved lust, anger, pride, vanity, greed, laziness, gluttony, etc...) and have sacrificed themselves for humanity's sake, listen to me, please (you are a selected one)!
Upon the Living Rock, right there, on the beach, you must trace with a reed the Rune Hagal (an X crossed in the middle by a horizontal line, which is the six-pointed star). Then, you must call the little boat of the sacred Swan. This is how you can embark to the mysterious islands of the fourth dimension.
Afterwards, when this sacred sign, this marvelous Rune has been traced, you must chant the following mantras:
Achaxucanac, Achxuraxan, Achgnoya, Xiraxi, Iguaya, Hiraji.
Look fixedly at the holy Rune Hagal, and with your heart filled with faith, beseech, ask unto the Roman Harpy (the Hag-all), the Nordic Urwala, the Scandinavian Erda, the primeval Sibyl of the earth, your own Divine Mother Kundalini (Athena, Mary, Adonia, the mother of the earth), to send for you the extraordinary little boat moved by the Sylphs.
Thus, ask her to take you from the third dimension and to penetrate you into the forth dimension to every land you want to go, to the temples of the white lodge. There you will learn what the resurrected masters know about the Word, about Christ. There amongst the Templars you will find the temple of the Grail, the temples of the masters of the fourth dimension. Go to Shangri-la, or Shambhala, or any ancient land of the fourth dimension.
Ah! How joyful you will be when you embark upon the mysterious boat of the sacred swan towards the mysterious islands of Eden.
Anyhow, if you are not a selected one, if you are a beginner, then, the master said:
But to you, the beginners, I advise you to render cult unto the Holy Gods, to work with the creatures of fire, air, water, and earth.
You must not forget your Divine Mother Kundalini, since without her you cannot progress in this sacred science.
You must remember that God has no name and that he is only an inhalation, a sigh, the Incessant Eternal Breath, profoundly unknown to Itself.
This Breath, by all means, is the principle of the Logos, of all the Runes, and of all words.
Beloved disciples, you must profoundly meditate on the Unity of Life, on the Great Alaya of the universe, on the invisible world, on the parallel universes of the superior dimensions of space.
Concentrate your thought on the Valkyries, Gods of fire, air, water, and earth. Agni is the God of fire. Paralda is the God of air. Varuna is the God of water. Gob is the God of the element earth.
Through meditation you can enter into communication with the Gods of the elements.
You must trace the Rune Hagal on a blank paper, then after, concentrate your mind on any of the four principal Gods of the elements. Call upon them so they can help you when it is necessary.
So invoke the Gods of the Aztec pantheon, or the Gods of the Hindu pantheon, or Christian pantheon, or Hebrew pantheon, or Muslim pantheon. No matter which ones, just invoke them. Call them Gods, Elohim; yet, if you do not like to name those supreme beings that control the forces of nature "Gods," then call them Angels, Masters, Devas, Buddhas, etc. Invoke them through the Rune Hagal and help yourself. Vitalize your body, your physicality, your mind. Ask whatever you want to ask from those Gods. To do whatever you need in your physicality, mind, or spirit. And pronounce the mantras every time you invoke even a single one of them. Pronounce the mantras that you know already related with every archetype in your vital body.
In other lectures, we said you can perform the rune Hagal with your physical body when you lower and raise your arms as the wings of a bird, turning clockwise at the same time. Turn clockwise like a wheel. You might remember that the whirling dervishes turn in that manner while forming a cross with their arms and body. Dervishes do it that way. For the Rune Hagal, you turn around in the same way, but the difference is that you are extending your arms up and down; up and down, as you can see in the graphic that is shown on the website.
When turning we are exercising and putting into activity our chakras, the vertices that we have in the body. Turn clockwise, and do not make the intellectual mistake of trying to comprehend this with the intellect, thinking about the turning around. Observe how the propellers on airplanes work. We do not see them as much any more, but there are still some planes that use propellers, either on the front or on the wings. The propellers on the plane turn in one direction, and the plane moves horizontally, to wherever it wants to go. Just because the propellers turn in circles, that does not mean the plane must turn in circles, or spin like a drill through space. That would be absurd. In the same way, understand that the chakras are rotating in one way, even if your body is rotating in another way. Your chakras are one thing and the body is another thing. Otherwise, we fall into confusion. The chakras rotate positively when you turn clockwise physically, not counter-clockwise. So clockwise is the way.
As we realize, as we comprehend, we find the five ethers in the superior part of the physical body, that is, the vital body. This is how we understand that through the Rune Hagal, the six-pointed star, the Star of David, is how the forces of nature are controlled in order to form, in order to make of us, a microcosmic star. The five ethers are the same five tattvas that we call Akasha, Vayu, Tejas, Apas, and Prithvi. This is what they are called in Sanskrit. The five tattvas are related with the five-pointed star, the pentagram, but they are controlled in form by the six-pointed star. That is why many Gnostics, many initiates, do not understand that from the six-pointed star emerges the five-pointed star, the pentagram. Both stars are interrelated, given that the pentagram, which is the perfect man, the perfect Adam, can control the forces of nature, through the Rune Hagal.
Based on these former explanations, we understand why the word Hurricane is related with the wind, and with the twisters or the whirlwinds of the earth. The word Hurricane comes from the Mayan language Huracán (also Hurakan, Harakan and Jurakan), which can be understood as Jun Raqan, "one legged." As you see, the H is at the beginning of the word. The H is the breath in Hurricane, the twister, or the one-legged wind force of God that turns and goes. We know that the Father, the one-leg-shaped winged serpent, is the one that turns around like a whirlwind or a Hurricane. If you observe, the first syllable of Hurricane and Human is H U, HU, which is not only the way we pronounce the sound of the wind, the Spirit, in Aztec, but also in Sanskrit. Many times we said that HU relates to the Spirit. Now, if we take the next letter of Hurricane, we have then "HUR", which is (روح) an Arabic word, meaning Breath and Spirit, "HUR" relate to the superior forces of the wind, the רוח אלהים Ruach Elohim that the Hebrew bible talks about. Notice that the Hebrew word רוח "Ruach" (wind) spelled with: Reish, Vav, Chet, can also be read "RUH", which is חור "HUR" backwards. So the word "Human" is something very profound in relation with this lecture. Hu is related with the Rune Hagal, with the H, with the breath of God, with the Spirit. HU-MAN is the man is rooted in manas (mind), which is represented by the Rune Man in the Futharkh, or Nordic alphabet. Thus, manas, man, mind is in the word Human.
So this is why when they ask us, "Does the human being exist on the planet earth?" the answer is no. The human being does not exist on the planet earth. People on this planet earth are called human beings out of respect, but they are not human beings yet. If they work with their HU, the Spirit, the wind, with the will of the Father, then they will eventually become a HU-MAN, a Spirit that thinks. "Man" is manas, mind. A Human is a Spirit that thinks. The mind is not the brain, and the Human is not the physicality, although many people think that way, such as the atheists, whose mind does not believe in the "HU," the Spirit. They are not "humans," since with their mind (manas) they are denying their HU, their Theus. Thus, they are not hu-mans (spirits with mind), because a human being is a being where the wind, the spirit, is acting through his thought, which becomes the word. Remember that the thoughts we have express themselves as words.
In Kabbalah there is another letter related with the H, which is the letter Chet (ח). The letter Chet in Kabbalah is similar to the letter Hei (ה). The only difference is that Chet has one opening at the bottom of it and Hei has two openings; namely, one opening at the bottom and another upward, near its top left. People that do not understand Hebrew sometimes mistake the Chet for the Hei or vice versa. Both letters are pronounced with the throat: Hei, Chet. This means that the Hei becomes the Chet when the air, which is the positive force, the wind, fecundates the throat. Again, when the air fecundates the Hei, the throat, it becomes the Chet. This is a Kabbalistic symbol.
In English, the H is pronounced like a deep breath: hhhhh, like Hhhat. In Spanish, the letter H is not pronounced—it is silent—but we do pronounce the Chet in Spanish; it is the "J" sound, which is strong. This is the difference between the Chet and the Hei. When you pronounce the Hei, you just breathe, without making any force in you throat. But when you tighten it—like cchhh—then it is the Chet. This is the difference in sound between the two letters.
Now behold, in Hebrew, in order to say life, we say (חיים) Chaim. This word is written with Chet, not with Hei, and it is in plural. And with Chet, Vav, and Hei, is how you write Eve (חוה, Chavah) in Hebrew. See how beautiful it is. Thus (חוה) Chavah, Eve, is called the mother of the living (חי, Chai). And it is previously written in the book of Genesis, that when God breathed into the nostrils of Adam the breath of (חי, Chai) life, then Adam became a (נפש חי, Nephesh Chai) living soul.
We must state that the (חי Chai) life that was breathed into the nostrils of Adam, was hidden within the letter Aleph (Kabbalistic symbol of air, the breath) which is at the beginning of the word Adam. Thus, that א Aleph within דם, "Dam," the blood, became (אדם) Adam, a living soul. Through the nostrils enters the breath, the air, א "Aleph," within which is life, the Chet in our body.
We find a marvelous symbol in the Book of Ezekiel. In Hebrew, in order to write "the Lord", you write: Aleph, Daleth, Nun, Iod, which reads, Adonai or Adoni, "the Lord," or "my Lord," Adonai. Kabbalistically, the name Adonai is the name given to God in the physical plane. That is why in Judaism they say Baruch Ha-Shem Adonai, meaning, Holy or Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Indeed, what we have to do in our physicality is to make blessed, holy, the name of the Lord. Yes, really, many times we have explained that the physical body is a feminine archetype; even if we are males, the physical body is feminine, because Malkuth, the very bottom of the Tree of Life, is feminine. This is why when we call the physical body Mary, or Mary Magdalene, it is addressing us, physically speaking. Every one of us, when we enter this path, we enter as Mary Magdalene (who was, symbolically speaking, a prostitute). This means that every one of us has prostituted our physicality. Thus, we have to learn how to make it holy. Baruch Ha-Shem Adonai. Blessed, Holy, be the Name of the Lord, in us. So, the Name, the Word, becomes Holy in us when we work with it in the initiation; and then we, our matter, become the Virgin Mary, physically speaking.
Regarding the Rune Hagal, when we work with it in our physicality, when we work with it in our own matter, then our substance-matter (the Roman Harpy - the Hag-all) becomes Virgin Mary, and from that Virgin Mary emerges the Logos (from the Hagal emerges the entire Futharkh), and the word is made flesh. Remember that the Logos was made flesh through the womb of Mary. This is an alchemical work that we need to perform in our physicality. The Word made flesh is what Jesus represents in our physicality. Remember that Jesus was born from the Substance-Matter (Water) Mary (Stella Maris) and the Holy Spirit.
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus said unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water [remember the prima matter, (םי) "Im" the water] and of the Spirit (the breath, the wind), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, You must be born again. The wind blows where it listeth, and you hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell whence it comes, and whither it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Nicodemus answered and said unto him, how can these things be?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and do not know these things?
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye have not faith, how shall ye have faith, if I tell you of heavenly things? – John 3:3-12
Understand that Jesus was not born "literally" from the air, the Spirit, and the water, like a soap bubble, and said, "I am Jesus." He was born from the sexual fiery wind of the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary. Jesus grew inside of her womb and after nine months he appeared. And when he was twelve years old, who do you think was the one that taught Jesus about Kabbalah at that age? It is written in many apocrypha (books, gospels) that the master that taught Jesus in his childhood was the angel Baruch. The angel Baruch is related with the mysteries of the Tree of Life. Jesus was a great Initiate, a great master, yes, but he started to learn Kabbalah from the angel Baruch. Baruch Hashem Adonai. That angel started teaching Jesus Kabbalah and all the mysteries of the Torah, which are written in the new gospels, but in a hidden manner. Yet Jesus also learned Buddhism, Hinduism, and many other religions. Not only Kabbalah. But the first science that he learned was Kabbalah, from the angel Baruch. Why? Because his matter, his own physical body, was virgin, that means chaste. And that is why, through him, other matters—in other words, other Mary Magdalenes, other sinners—became chaste, holy; they learned how to become chaste, how to become masters of the day.
This is why, when you read, "Adonai," you can also read, "Adonia," which is the feminine aspect of Adonai. Indeed, Adonai is an angel, but his archetype works in us too. The archetype is that Christic element that can be developed inside of us. Every master outside symbolizes an archetype that we need to develop within. Thus, Adonia symbolizes the Divine Mother who controls the forces of the elements.
Please read the first chapter of the book of Ezekiel, since we are going to mention it only in the surface, because if we start explaining a little about its symbolism, it will take a couple of hours. And you will get tired, as I am already tired; my throat is telling me, "I have already uttered too many children, too many words."
So listen about the symbol of the Star of David, Adonia: The lion symbolizes the fire; the ox or bull represents the earth; above is the air, symbolized by the eagle; and in the middle is the face of Adam, or the angel, which represents the man, the water.
Ezekiel explains there how the word became flesh in him. He says, "I was in the river Chebar." The river Chebar, like the river Jordan, represents the sexual energy. The river is in the land of the Chaldeans. What does the land of Chaldeans symbolize? If you take the Hebrew word כשדים "Chaldean" and look it up in the dictionary, you will find that it means devils, phantoms, creatures (in the evil way). This means that when you start the alchemy in your sexual forge, you find all those evil creatures within, which are called Chaioth. Every single creature is called Chai (creature). The plural is Chaioth, which means the four of them. These Chaioth are inside of us, but are impure. Yes, inside of us, the fire is impure, the water is impure, the air is impure, the earth is impure. Thus, we have to make them pure, through the knowledge of the breath and chastity. This is how they become Chaioth-Ha-Kadosh, which is how you say "The Holy Creatures" in Hebrew: Chaioth-Ha-Kadosh. In Hebrew, Chaioth is the plural feminine of "Life," Chai. Behold the letter H, the breath, and the sound of Aleph, the trinity. In Hebrew Kadosh means holy. Chaioth-Ha-Kadosh, The Holy Creatures.
We have to make these creatures holy through alchemy. Chaioth-Ha-Kadosh. And this is why is it written in the beginning of the book of Ezekiel that he was in the land of the Chaldeans, close to the river Chebar. And he heard the word, the word of Jehovah, יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, which is profoundly significant. Just reading that implies a lot.
Thereafter he describes how the Lord appears within the four living creatures, which are the four elements. Ezekiel states that from the north was coming a whirlwind. If you understand that based on this lecture, the whirlwind is a hurricane coming from the north. Kabbalistically speaking, the north is the pineal gland, because in the north is Jehovah Elohim. Yes, Jehovah Elohim governs the physical body in the north because Jehovah Elohim, the Holy Spirit, governs the sexual organs and the physical body from the pineal gland. That is why it is stated that the God of the physical body is the Holy Spirit, but the Holy Spirit in the way that we explained here. And in the physical body the Holy Spirit receives the name of Adonai or Adonia. אֲדֹנִיָּ Adonia is the wife of the Holy Spirit, Binah. In other words, your chaste physicality is the wife of the Holy Spirit, Binah, because the physicality of all the people on the earth is Mary Magdalene, a prostitute, who needs to learn the doctrine, the word of God, in order to become holy, and thus marry Jesus, which is the Word of God made flesh in her, symbolically speaking. Thus, this is how the Word came to Ezekiel.
The wind blows where it listeth, and you hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell whence it comes, and whither it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. – John 3: 8
All of us would like to hear the Word of God, to hear the sound thereof coming into us. But Ezekiel was already an initiate, a prophet. He was not born a prophet. He became a prophet through initiation. And when he was ready in the river Chebar, as Jesus was ready in the Jordan, the Word of God came and entered into him. The Word came in the same way to Ezekiel, who, by the way, is also called "The son of man". Ezekiel received the Word of God in himself. Again the whirlwind was coming from the north; in other words, from above the head. That whirlwind was the Ruach Elohim coming inside his body. Ezekiel describes how these four living creatures were entering into him and transforming him. This is how he sows the wheels and the wings of the creatures inside of him. To that end, if you look in the website for the lecture called "The world of Yetzirah," there you will find the explanation of the whole chapter of the book of Ezekiel and understand how the elemental forces of nature enter into your body from the north, from above, when you perform the Rune Hagal. That is why this rune is marvelous.
In our retreats we performed this rune in front of a lake, river or sea, as we explained here. We invoke the Gods of the elements of water, air, ether, earth, and fire, all in unison, with the Rune Hagal. Everybody concentrates on the Rune Hagal, and makes the Rune Hagal to turn, because when you imagine this rune, you have to make it turn. That is how it works, with our imagination. Thus, while with our imagination we are turning the rune, we are invoking the Angels and pronouncing the mantras and taking advantage of the forces of nature. We can do that, whether on the beach or at the shore of a river or lake, or in the forest. It is good if we do it close to the water, because the water is the element that caries all these forces: the waters from above, Akasha, and waters from below, our sexual force.
Questions and Answers
Question: How does the mantra LA RA SS relates to this?
Answer: "La Ra SS" is a mantra to pronounce in order to project your self astrally, into the fifth dimension. You pronounce it as follows: LLLAAAA RRRAAAA SSSSSS. It is obviously related with two mantras given here: LA for the earth and RA for the fire. לא LA for your physical body and RAS "ראש" for the fire that you are moving from the head of your physical body, since after that you pronounce the SSSS. LA RA SS. This mantra manipulates the forces of your body—which is the Fire (RA) of your physicality (LA)—in order to attract the solar forces of the astral that will help you to project yourself consciously out of your body. That is a mantra for astral projection.
Question: If the throat, the larynx, is the uterus, the mother, and the Word is the son, then who is the father?
Answer: Obviously, Aleph is the father, the air that enters through your lungs, that is, the hurricane that enters through your nose, represented by Kether. In other words, the air fecundates the throat when you breathe. This is how you understand that God, the Father, breathed into your nostrils and put the breath that becomes a living soul into your throat, through your nostrils. And Adam became a living soul (יח נפש, Nephesh Chai) Nephesh is the Hebrew word for soul. Remember always: the father is represented by the wind. That is why when we talk about Kether, the first Sephirah of the Tree of Life, we state that he has no form, is abstract, as the air. He is Aleph, the head of the trinity. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are represented in א Aleph. If you observe the letters of ancient Hebrew, you find that the letter Aleph looks like the Latin A, but tipped over. This is how you drew Aleph in ancient times. It is indeed a tipped over Latin A.
So Aleph is the breath of God, which is precisely represented by the tongue of Tonatiuh. That breath is the father that enters into your lungs and fecundates your throat in order for the word, the son, to be born.
Yet, subjectively speaking, what is our mind creating? Obscene words? Lies? Deformed words? Monsters? Are we lying? Do we realize now why it is stated, "Thou shalt not lie"? Because when we are talking, we are utilizing, the truth, the breath, God, and if we are pronouncing lies, we are making monsters with our mind and throat. And that is precisely what this humanity is doing—utilizing the word in the wrong way. Through the media, they are uttering lies. Gossiping, utilizing the word in the wrong way. So what type of children (words) do we have? What type of words do we pronounce? In other words, if you want the Son of God within you, well then, you have to make of your matter, Mary, a Virgin Mary—do not lie.
Question: Is the throat therefore also fecundated by the mind?
Answer: Indeed, because נצח Netzach, the mind, relates to the Air. Netzach is a word that derives from the Hebrew מצח Metzach, which means "forehead," the mind. Obviously in the brain, as we explained, is the H, and the A: HA; the mantra of the ether. How are we utilizing our brain, our thoughts? What type of thoughts do we have? Do we have idols in our head? "Thou shalt have no other Elohim before me," says the Bible. The only Elohim that we have to worship is the one from whom we come, who is above: the will of God.
Theory is very good word to describe. Theories. Theos means God. Theories, means the way in which you make gods with your thoughts; in other words, idols. Thus, if you pronounce your theories and pronounce incoherent words, you are worshiping idols, even if you have no religious symbols in your home.
Question: Can you explain how the manifestation of imbalance in the lungs, arms, and brain is related with the sign of Gemini?
Answer: Well, the sign of Gemini relates to the duality. It relates to the shoulders, arms, hands, and lungs. It is in relation with the wrong use of the duality, the two opposite forces. Remember that Gemini is ruled by Mercury. In many other lectures, we said that Mercury relates to the air, the lungs. That is why the Ruach Elohim that was hovering in the beginning upon the waters is Mercury—Raphael, the God Mercury; or the archangel Raphael, the God of medicine. So how is your Ruach Elohim, that spirit, that mercury, working in you? Mercury is also related with the sexual force in your sexual glands, which is the brute mercury. The deformity or problem that you have in your shoulders, hands, lungs, relates to the wrong use of the words, the wrong use of the breath, the Ruach Elohim, not only through your throat, but in the sexual act too. Thus, we utilize our mind in the wrong way. All of us suffer from that, even if we are not from the sign of Gemini. But always remember the duality of your lungs, hands, etc. Remember that the hands represent your will. Remember that the Book of Revelation states that the sign of the beast, 666, was written on the forehead and on the hands—the way we think, the head; the way we act, the hands—in other words, our mind and will, used in the wrong way. In synthesis, the beast, 666, is inside of us. It is not outside. Every single person on this planet earth carries the beast 666 inside.
Before the false dawn came over this earth, those who survived the hurricane and the storm, gave praise to the Innermost, and to them appeared the heralds of the dawn. - The Testament of Learning
Baruch Hashem Adonai. Holy and blessed be the name of the Lord. Remember that the Lord, the Innermost, is also inside, in the depth of your consciousness. Thank you very much.
