Verses 73 to 80 from Psalm 119 begin with Iod:
ידיך עשוני ויכוננוני הבינני ואלמדה מצותיך׃
יראיך יראוני וישמחו כי לדברך יחלתי׃
ידעתי יהוה כי־צדק משפטיך ואמונה עניתני׃
יהי־נא חסדך לנחמני כאמרתך לעבדך׃
יבאוני רחמיך ואחיה כי־תורתך שעשעי׃
יבשו זדים כי־שקר עותוני אני אשיח בפקודיך׃
ישובו לי יראיך [כ= וידעו] [ק= וידעי] עדתיך׃
יהי־לבי תמים בחקיך למען לא אבוש׃
73 Your hands made me and fixed me; give me understanding that I may learn your commands.
74 Those who are in awe of you will see me and rejoice, for I have hoped in your Word.
75 I know, Oh Iod-Havah that your judgments are righteous and in fidelity you afflicted me.
76 Let your mercy, I beg you, be for my comfort, according to your Word in your servant.
77 Let your mercies come to me that I may live, for your law is my delight.
78 Let the proud be ashamed, for with lies they perverted me. I will meditate on your precepts.
79 Let those who are in awe of you and knowers of your testimonies turn to me.
80 Let my heart be blameless in your statutes that I may not be ashamed.
In this lecture we are going to study the Arcanum 10 of the Tarot. It is necessary to analyze the cosmogonic wheel of Ezekiel. In this wheel, we find the battle of antitheses. Hermanubis rises through the right and Typhon descends through the left of the fatal wheel. This is the wheel of the centuries, the wheel of reincarnations and of Karma. Upon the wheel appears the mystery of the Sphinx grasps the flaming sword between its lion’s paws. This is the wheel of antithesis. The Serpent of Brass that healed the Israelites in the wilderness and the Terrible Tempting Serpent of Eden are mutually combating each other.
The entire secret of the Tree of Knowledge is enclosed within this wheel; the four rivers of paradise flow from this unique fountain, one of them runs through the thick jungle of the sun watering the philosophical earth of gold and light and the other tenebrously and turbulently runs into the Kingdom of the Abyss. Light and darkness, White Magic and Black Magic are mutually combating each other. Eros and Anteros, Cain and Abel live within us in an intense battle, until by discovering the mystery of the sphinx, we grasp the flaming sword, and thus, this is how we become liberated from the wheel of the centuries.
The lunar Conscience is the outcome of our unfaithful memory; this type of Consciousness sleeps profoundly. The humanoid has conscience of that which he remembers; no humanoid has conscience of that which he does not remember. The Sinning Adam is memory, he is the same reincarnating ego, he is the lunar conscience. Clairvoyants affirm that the atoms of the secret enemy constitute this conscience and that it is a tenebrous remnant of our lunar past (a threshold’s larva).
Our Gnostic disciples must comprehend the significance of this type of conscience: The lunar conscience is something that must be conscious; and it needs someone who is conscious of it. The lunar conscience is submitted to every type of limitation, qualification, restriction, reaction; it is the outcome of matter, the outcome of our race’s inheritance, family, habits, customs, prejudices, desires, fears, appetencies, etc. The sinning Adam with his lunar conscience reincarnates with the goal of gaining more experiences within the school of life. However, life’s experiences complicate and strengthen the sinning Adam. The once innocent humanity from Eden is now this terrible and perverse humanity of the Atomic and Hydrogen bomb.
The innocent child (with the experiences of life) is converted into a sly, distrustful, malicious, avaricious, fearful elder; such is the lunar conscience. The devil is a devil and can never acquire perfection. The great Master H.P. Blavatsky stated: “Strengthen your soul against the stalking of your ‘I;’ make her worthy to bear the name of “Diamond Soul.”
There exist changes in the lunar conscience and there exist changes of Consciousness. Every improvement in the lunar conscience originates changes within it. These types of changes in the lunar conscience are superficial and useless. What we need is a change of Consciousness. When we dissolve the lunar Consciousness then the solar Consciousness is born within us.
It is necessary for the sinning Adam to die within us so that Adam Christ can be born within us. We grasp the flaming sword when we liberate the solar electronic energy that is enclosed within the seminal atoms. .
Perseus descends into the Flaming Forge of Vulcan in order to decapitate the sinning Adam (Medusa) with his flaming sword. John the Baptist is decapitated and Christ is crucified in order to save the world. The slaughter of the innocent children (the Initiates) is a repetitive action throughout the initiation. This is how the solar Consciousness is born within us; this type of Consciousness contains in itself the knower, the knowledge and the known thing, three in one and one in three. The solar Consciousness is omnipresent and omni-penetrating. The solar Consciousness liberates the human being from the fatal wheel of the centuries.
Uranus is the octave of Venus. It governs the masculine and feminine facets of sex. It has a sexual cycle of eighty-four years. Uranus’s cycle is divided into two periods of 42 years, positive-masculine and negative-feminine. Uranus’ two poles are always facing toward the sun. For 42 years the positive pole is directed towards the sun and another 42 years the negative pole. Now we can understand where that alternated stimuli for both sexes comes from; the marvelous biorhythm of 84 years. The wheel of the centuries rotates in periods of forty-two years each. The masculine sex predominates for one half and the feminine sex for the other half. The sexual cycle of Uranus corresponds with the average length of a human life; this signifies that the antithesis of the sexual cycle in which we were born, vibrates within us during our adulthood. Then we feel sexually stimulated. We comprehend why mature men and women are indeed mature enough to work in the Great Work, because sexual sentiments are more vigorous at forty years of age.
Light and Consciousness are two phenomena of the same thing. The more levels of Christic Consciousness we develop the more levels of light we attain. The planets are gradually absorbing the Christic Consciousness of the Sun. Thus when the planets of our solar system have integrally absorbed the Divine Solar Consciousness, then life, light and heat will no longer occupy only the astronomical place of the sun, but the entire solar system will then shine like the sun. This is the case of the gigantic sun Antares, which is a million times more rarified than our sun. The light of the solar system of Antares is not only localized in its sun, because each one of its planets has become a sun. The planetary humanities enjoy the solar Consciousness; the outcome of this joy is the splendors of the solar system of Antares.
Ten Sephiroth are spoken of, but in reality, there are twelve. The Ain Soph is the eleventh, and the twelfth Sephirah is its tenebrous antithesis within the Abyss.
These are twelve spheres, or universal regions, which mutually penetrate and co-penetrate without confusion. These twelve spheres gravitate within the central atom of the sign of the Infinite. A solar humanity unfolds within these twelve spheres. We have said that the sign of the Infinite is in the center of the earth, in the heart of the earth. The Ten Sephiroth of universal vibration emanate from the Ain Soph (the Micro-cosmic star) that guides our interior. The Ain Soph is the Being of our Being.
The Ten Sephiroth emanate from the Ain Soph as follows:
The Sephiroth are atomic; these ten Sephiroth can be reduced to three tables:
This is Jacob's ladder, which goes from earth to heaven. All of the worlds of cosmic Consciousness are reduced to these three tables.
All of the ten know Sephiroth come from Sephirah, the Divine Mother; She dwells in the Heart Temple.
It is necessary that our Gnostic disciples learn how to leave their physical body in order to travel with their internal vehicles with complete cognizance in order to penetrate within the distinct Sephirothic regions.
It is necessary to directly know the twelve spheres of universal vibration, where all of the being of the universe develops and lives. The disciple must concentrate on the chakra of the heart, which is where the Divine Cosmic Mother abides. The disciple must beseech Sephirah, the Mother of the Sephiroth; the disciple muse beg her to take him out of his physical body in order to take him to the distinct departments of the kingdom in order to directly study the Sephiroth of Kabbalah. The disciple must pray and meditate abundantly on the Divine Mother while mentally vocalizing the following Kabbalistic mantras:
Lifaros – Lifaros – Licanto – Ligoria
Vocalize these mantras by syllabifying them. If you carefully observe the intelligent phonetic structure of these mantras, you will see the three vowels I.A.O. of the great mysteries.
I.A.O. is hidden and combined in these sacred mantras of Kabbalah. The disciple must become sleepy while mentally vocalizing these four Kabbalistic mantras. It is necessary to practice a retrospective exercise when awakening from our normal sleep; this in order to remember what we have seen and heard during the dream.
Flee from those who sell initiations. Remember that the initiation is your own life. If you want initiation, write it upon a reed (whosoever understands this let him understand it for there is wisdom within). The path of liberation is represented by the life, passion, death, resurrection and ascension of our Adorable Savior. Remember that your ego does not receive initiations. Thus, you must not boast of being an initiate; do not say, “I have these initiations” or “I have these powers” because this is arrogance and vanity. Only the Innermost receives initiations. You, wretched creature are nothing but the sinning shadow of the one who has never sinned. Exert yourself so that you can die more each time within yourself so that the “Son of Man” can be born within you.
Iod is the foundation of the property of touch, the principle of action and reaction. Thus, the hand in the attitude of touching also represents it. This is why we have ten fingers.
"Instead of the coitus which reaches the orgasm, sweet caresses, amorous phrases and delicate touching should be lavished reflectively, keeping the mind constantly separated from animal sexuality, sustaining the purest spirituality as if the act were a true religious ceremony.
“Nevertheless, the man can and should introduce (the “Iod”) the penis and keep it inside (the ה “Hei”) the feminine sex to bring about a divine sensation upon both, full of joy, that can last for hours, withdrawing it at the moment the orgasm is near to avoid the ejaculation of semen. In this way, they will have a greater desire to caress each other each time.
“This may be repeated as many times as desired without ever becoming tiresome. On the contrary, it is the Magic Key to daily rejuvenation, keeping the body healthy and prolonging life, because this constant magnetization is a fountain of health.
“We know that in ordinary magnetism, the magnetizer communicates fluids to the subject and if the first has those forces developed, he can heal the second. The transmission of magnetic fluids is ordinarily done through the hands or through the eyes, but it is necessary to say that there is no greater and more powerful conductor, a thousand times more powerful, a thousand times superior to others, than the virile member (the “Iod”) and the vulva (the “Hei”) as receptive (Ratzon-l-Kabel) organs.
"If many people practice this, they will spread force and success in their surroundings for all those who come into commercial or social contact with them. But in the act of sublime, divine magnetization to which we are referring, both man and woman reciprocally magnetize each other, the one being for the other as a musical instrument which, when plucked, gives off or emits prodigious sounds of mysterious and sweet harmonies. The strings of that instrument are spread all over the body, and it is the lips and fingers that make them vibrate, if the utmost purity presides over the act. This is what makes us Magicians in that supreme moment." - Dr. Arnold Krumm-Heller
This is how the Angels are made; only like this can we interact with the Elohim of Yetzirah, Briah, and Atziluth, meaning, only like this can we enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. The Second Birth explained by Jesus to Nicodemus cannot occur without the permutation of the ‘Ens Seminis,’ within which the primordial substance ‘Adamah’ awaits for its rectification in order to create the man into the image of the Elohim.
Therefore, the essential power of the letter Iod is found in Yesod, the ninth sphere, the center of Malkuth, the Earth.
The Ain Soph Aur, the Solar Absolute, is hidden within “Iod,” which reflects its infinite potential through Yesod in order to develop and express itself in time and space as multiple phenomena in the seven cosmoses, meaning, in all the Sephiroth of all of the worlds of the Tree of Life.
The infinite power of the Solar Absolute (Ain Soph Aur) is hidden, latent within the Ruach or life-essence of the Elohim. This infinite, latent power becomes active through its development from Yesod throughout the Sephiroth.
Thus, the power of the infinite essence of Aelohim is hidden within Elohim in the beginning. Its unlimited power (by its own will) becomes limited and hidden in Yesod (sex), a power that becomes untouchable for the fornicators who reject its uncreated light.
Thus, from the effulgence of the Ain Soph Aur (the Ray of Okidanokh) sprang forth (in space) the Pleromatic energies of Kether (as a single spot of light, the Iod) at the Dawn of Creation. Kether, the number One, emerges as a spark from within the Darkness, and subsequently, (as an enfoldment of his light) his body is formed with the 10 Sephiroth.
This is how the letter Iod, as a small, suspended dot hidden within the middle of a serpentine circle (the letter ט Teth in movement, symbol of ס Samech, the infinite), becomes the middle point between the unknowable and the knowable, between the infinite and the finite.
Iod is the contraction of the Ain Soph Aur, the subsequent light from the initial Tzimtzum of the Absolute that is revealed as the light of pleroma or superior-life-essence. Therefore, from the Absolute Abstract Space this Pleromatic light emerges mysteriously in successive and ordered emanations -“Sephiroth” - in each kabbalistic world and in perfect pairs.
This is the contraction of the abstract light from the Ain Soph, in order to create within any given spot in space. Iod is a single potential point or impression of the eternal breath, profoundly unknowable to itself; it is an eternal becoming from within the illuminated void.
Iod manifests the hidden, infinite light power of the Ain Soph, the Absolute. Any finite phenomenon contains within itself the will of Iod, Kether, expressed through them a Mayavic or external reality.
The Manifested Universe - “Maya” - sprouts from the Ain Soph, the Infinite Zero dimension (the Serpent biting its own tail). Thereafter, Iod appears as a simple dot that develops into the Hebrew letter ו Vav, or a horizontal, one-dimensional line, and by descending vertically from above, it forms the letter ד Daleth, a two-dimensional surface. This is how from within the middle of the circle, the infinite (ס Samech), the dot or י Iod (יוד yud-Vav-dalet) develops the will of Kether in Yesod, the center of the universe.
The Hebrew word “Yesod” has ד Daleth - the door through which “Iod” or Arik Anpin (who by means of El-Shaddai hides his image in ס ‘Samech’ that has the same shape of מ ‘Mem’ the waters) shapes, transforms its essence “Adamah”, its own image, through ו “Vav” in order to create Zauir Anpin, the human being, the true man, the solar man, the Soli-Man or Solomon. Therefore, in all Solar Men, Iod (Kether) is the crown that inspires and directs in them their Wisdom or Objective Reasoning.
Any tridimensional body-shape of Malkuth contains in potentiality the final stage of this descending development of Iod through all of the Ten Sephiroth. Through evolution these tenfold, potential Sephiroth, or igneous particles (“Hashim”), when reaching the human kingdom, can through Iod in Yesod (sex) permute its essence ‘Ruach’ into a Human Being or Zauir Anpin, who is made based on the image of Arik Anpin.
The power of the Ain Soph is revealed in Daath, the Sephirah of mystery, whose emanations manifest in Yesod, the ninth sphere, the center of Malkuth.
Thus, Iod is hidden within the limitation of Yesod, sex, in Malkuth, the physical body. Through sexual transmutation Iod reveals the secret of the ten Sephiroth, which are the Divine channels of light through which the Ain Soph Aur continually brings the word of Aelohim into being.
The tenth Sephirah, Malkuth, has "IO", the 10 or the numerical value of the letter Iod, which is related to masculinity and femininity. Kether (the Crown, the Iod of the King) manifests his power in Yesod; and in order for his power to be developed in any human vessel, it needs the assistance of Malkuth, Malka ( Hebrew for "the Queen") in the nuptial chamber, and by accomplishing the ten commandments, revealed at Sinai by Elohim to the souls of Israel (the twelve zodiacal signs) who are enslaved by Assiah, Malkuth, Matzarim, Egypt.
Now Moses (as a Bodhisattva of compassion) kept the flock (or congregation) of Jethro his father-in-law (or Guru), the priest (Hierophant) of (the temple of) Midian: and (after his resurrection in the fire and in the light) he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to (Daath) the mountain of God, even to Horeb (the Mount of Atziluth before the Three Supernals).
And a Meleck (King) of the most high Iod-Havah appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the (pillar of the) midst of a bush (the Tree of Knowledge, Daath): and he looked, and, behold (IAO, “Iod, Hei, Vav”), the bush burned with (the) fire (of Nachash, the Serpent of Brass, Kundalini), and (the energy of) the bush was not consumed.
And Moses said, I will now turn aside (towards the other ה “Hei”, the Ain Soph), and see this great sight (the light, Aur), (which is) why the bush is not burnt.
And when Iod-Havah saw that he turned aside to see (Aelohim), Elohim called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said: here am I.
And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off your shoes from off your feet, for the place whereon you stand is (Adamah) holy ground.
Moreover he said, I am the Eloah of thy father, the Eloah of Abraham, the Eloah of Isaac, and the Eloah of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon Elohim.
And Iod-Havah said, I have surely seen the affliction of (my igneous particles) my people which are in Matzarim, (Assiah or Malkuth) and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; and I (through your Vav, spinal column) am come down to deliver them out of the hand of Matzarim (Assiah or Malkuth,), and to bring them up out of that land unto (Yesod, Eden, which is) a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
Now therefore, behold (that out of Malkuth, Assiah), the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me (the Iod, Kether in Atziluth): and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Matzarim (of mechanical forces of Nature, Assiah or Malkuth) oppress them.
Come now therefore (on the Path of the Midst), and I (Iod, Kether from Atziluth) will send you unto Pharaoh (the law in Malkuth), that you may bring forth (my igneous particles) my people the children of Israel (children of Isis and the God Ra) out of Matzarim (Assiah or Malkuth).
And Moses said unto Elohim, Who am I (a Bodhisattva), that I should go unto Pharaoh (the Law in Malkuth), and that I should bring forth the children (the igneous particles) of Israel (Isis and the God Ra) out of Matzarim (Assiah or Malkuth)?
And he said, certainly (you are a Bodhisattva, therefore) I will be within you (in your Spinal Medulla); and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent you: When you have brought forth the people (when you have liberated the whole of your Consciousness) out of Matzarim (Assiah or Malkuth), you shall serve Elohim upon this mountain (in Atziluth).
And Moses said unto Elohim, Behold, when I come unto the children (the igneous particles) of Israel (Isis and the God Ra), and shall say unto them, The Eloah of your fathers hath sent me unto you (as an Avatar or Messenger); and they shall say to me, what is his name? What shall I say unto them?
And Elohim said unto Moses, (Eheie Asher Eheie) I AM THE ONE THAT AM: and he said, Thus shall you say unto the children (the igneous particles) of Israel (Isis and the God Ra that are trapped in Matzarim, Malkuth), I AM (Eheie, Iod, Kether) has sent me unto you.” - Exodus 3: 1-14
The Ten commandments, and in fact the Twenty-two commandments that are related to every letter of the word of God, possess the power of Iod, since every letter begins with that little spot that holds the manifested light of the Ain Soph. So each letter is a channel of the light of Christ (“AUR”) that reveals the Wisdom, Chokmah, of the Word of God, the Cosmic Christ, the infinite Light of the Ain Soph. Therefore:
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.” - Colossians 2: 8, 9
There was a division therefore (in Malkuth) again among the Jews (those who worship the Fire of Leo, “Aryeh”) for these sayings.
And many of them said (fanatically as ignoramuses) He has a devil, and is mad; why do you hear him?
Others said, these are not the words (the teachings) of him that has a devil. Can a devil (of Klipoth) open the eyes of the blind (those who do not see or comprehend the hidden wisdom of God)?
And it was at Jerusalem (the Solar Mind) the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus (the letter Shin, the triple-Iod-force of Elohim hidden within Adam and Havah) walked in the temple (Malkuth) in Solomon's porch.
Then came the Jews (those who worship the Fire of Leo, “Aryeh”) round about him, and said unto him, how long do you make us to doubt? If you be (the ש Shin, the triple-Iod-force of Elohim hidden within Adam and Havah) the Christ, tell us plainly.
Jesus answered them, I told you, and you believed not: the works that I do in (Iod) my Father's name (Eheie), they bear witness of me. But you believe not, because you are not of my sheep (you are fornicators), as I said unto you.
My sheep (those who practice scientific Chastity) hear my voice, and I know them, and (by means of sexual transmutation) they follow me: And (through Yesod) I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand (Iod).
I (the fire of Chokmah) and my Father (the fire of Kether) are one (in Yesod).
Then the Jews (those who worship the fire of Leo, “Aryeh”) took up stones again to stone him.
The Jews (those who worship the fire of Leo “Aryeh”) answered him, saying, for a good work (through Teth, the Serpent of Brass) we do not stone you; but for blasphemy; and because you, being a man (through the Great Work) make of yourself a God.
Jesus answered them, is it not written in your law, I said: ‘You are Gods (Elohim)?’
“God (El, as Fire) stands in the congregation of the Gods (Elohim); within the midst of (ו Vav, the spinal medulla of) the Gods he judges, until when you will judge unjustly and lift up the faces of the wicked (lustful egos of yours)? Selah.
”Defend the poor and orphans (particles of your Being): do justice to the (particles of Kether bottled up within your wicked ego, do not you know that they are) afflicted and needy (because of your filthy lust). Deliver the poor and needy (particles of your Innermost) from the hand of the wicked (lustful egos of yours).
“I have said, you are Gods; and all of you (who are trapped in Matzarim, Malkuth, Assiah) are children of the Most High (Elion).
“But as (fornicating) men you shall die, and like one of the princes (Baalim) you shall fall (into Klipoth, the Abyss).
”Arise (your Kundalini, Nachash), Oh Gods, judge the earth (Malkuth): for you shall inherit all in the nations.” - Psalm 82: 1-8
Therefore: If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (or incarnated), and the scripture cannot be broken; why do you say of him (the Ain Soph Aur), whom the Father (Iod) has sanctified (in Daath), and sent into the world (of Malkuth, Matzarim, Egypt, Assiah), you blasphemes; because I said, I am (the Cosmic Christ) the Son of God (or the Ruach of the Elohim hidden within the waters of Yesod)?
If I do not do the works of (Iod) my Father (in Yesod), believe me not. But if I do, then believe me not, but believe the works (go and transmute your sexual energies): that you may know, and believe, that the Father (Kether) is in me (as Iod in Yesod), and I (the Ain Soph Aur, the Cosmic Christ) in him.
Therefore they sought again to take him (through Black Tantra): but he escaped out of their (sinful, fornicating) hand (Iod) , and went away again beyond Jordan (in Yesod) into the place where John at first baptized (with Schamayim); and there (in Daath) he abode.
And many (by practicing sexual Alchemy) resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spoke of this man (or fiery Atom Nous) were true. And many (who practice sexual Alchemy) believed (held dear, hooked, loved, connected) on him there. - John 10: 19- 42
