I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.
His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.
I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.
The voice of my beloved! Behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.
My beloved spoke, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.
Take us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.
Until the day break and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether. - Song of Solomon 2
The first miracle performed by Jesus was the transmutation of water into wine; Jesus performed this miracle at a wedding. Thus, this is the first miracle that our disciples must perform; because this is how one enters initiation.
Yes, it is certain that by means of sexual contact within marriage we transmute the water into wine. We have to transmute the water (semen) into the wine of the light of the Alchemist; and indeed, sexual magic is the way.
Jesus Christ represented the entire drama of initiation in the flesh; this drama begins with sexual transmutation, because it is by means of sexual magic that we become as Gods.
When the spouses upraise themselves to the state of Gods, then they can only enjoy the delights of love without sexual contact; this is something that pertains to the Gods.
When we study the wedding of Cana within the Akashic archives of nature, we then see a great, wonderful party within a great wooden palace. The bride was a young aristocratic female of that old palace; she had a body of medium height, dark features, blunt nose and a protruding upper lip. She dressed in a white wedding garment and a crown of flowers over her head. The feast was solemn and Jesus attended it; yet suddenly, when the wine was consumed, all the guests look to each other as if saying, “This party is over”; however, Jesus crossed the room towards a corner of the luxurious palace, where a barrel (a square-shaped container) of pure water was set up; a few olive leaves were floating on the water. So, Jesus Christ extended his right hand over that pure water of life and the water was transmuted into wine. Thereafter, everyone rejoiced and continue their feasting celebration. So through this miracle, he publicly taught sexual magic.
We have to transmute the water of life (semen) into the wine of Light of the Alchemist; this is how the sacred fire awakens; this is how our spinal fires develop.
Let us not forget that the Cosmic Christ dwells within the seed of every plant, animal and human being.
Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto. Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, and to seeds, as of many; but as of one, and to thy seed, which is (the Cosmic) Christ. - Galatians 3: 15, 16
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of Jehovah come.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever (through sexual transmutation) shall call on the name of IAOH shall be delivered: for in mount Zion (Yesod) and in (Heavenly) Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as Iod-Havah hath said, and in the remnant whom Iod-Havah shall call. - Joel 2: 28-32 (Romans 10: 13)
