Onto us, Saint John delivered the mysteries of Christian Gnosis, whose secrets (even when they were not permitted to be unveiled) were unveiled for us in the book of Revelation, utilizing allegories in the same way the Aztecs did in their bas-reliefs and monoliths in order to transmit to us their occult wisdom.
I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
The seven churches are the seven main nervous centers of the spinal medulla in the human being.
Ephesus is the coccygeal ganglion, the Muladhara chakra where the serpent (symbolized by the feathered serpent of the Aztecs) of our sexual power is dormant.
Sexual caresses must be made between the couple, yet both must withdraw before ejaculation in the man and orgasm in the woman occurs, so as to avoid the spilling of the semen.
The book of Revelation states:
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. And grief will afflict thine heart.
When the human being fornicates, the feathered serpent descends one or more vertebrae in accordance with the amount lost in the act. This is how I will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Smyrna is the prostatic ganglion, the chakra Swadhisthana.
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Fornication is an act contrary to human nature. Presently, any man who is more than forty-five years old suffers prostatic hypertrophy.
Pergamos is the epigastric ganglion, the chakra Manipura.
I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: (the astral counterpart of the physical body has its seat in this ganglion), and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr... But I have a few things against thee: because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
Sexual ejaculation is the doctrine of the Nicolaitans. This doctrine was born of the practices of black magic from the Lemuro-Atlanteans, who transmitted them to the Moabites, Amorreans, Philistines, Cananeans, etc. The magicians who practice black sexual magic convert themselves into demons. In this case, the igneous serpent—instead of rising throughout the spinal medulla—descends towards the atomic infernos of the human being and forms within his Astral Body the tail with which Satan is represented.
Thyatira is the cardiac ganglion, the chakra Anahata.
These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass.
I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding, I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication... And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
The feathered serpent rises in accordance with the merits of our heart. The most perfect sanctity and chastity are necessary to achieve its ascension and union with the Innermost, so that the initiate can be born within the internal worlds as a Master of Major Mysteries. The union with the Innermost is very difficult, because crime is hidden within the incense of prayer. On the altars, crime is crowned with a crown of thorns. Crime is crouched within the greatest aspirations of the light. We find crime wearing a tunic of sanctity within the noblest purposes.
The Innermost abides within the heart.
We recommend that you take an inventory of all your defects and dedicate two months to each one of them until you completely extirpate them from your heart.
The igneous wings that allow us to instantaneously pass from one cosmic plane into another are received in the church of Thyatira from the hands of the spirits of movement.
Sardis is our creative laryngeal ganglion, the chakra Vishuddha.
He that hath the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars saith unto this church:
I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Philadelphia is the pituitary ganglion, the chakra Ajna.
These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth:
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Laodicea is the pineal ganglion, the chakra Sahasrara.
These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God unto this church:
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth. And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
These seven thunders are the seven notes that resound in the seven churches of the vertebral column of the initiate. These seven churches look like opened lotus flowers within the marvelous reed of our vertebral column.
Ephesus grants us power over the earth; Smyrna grants us power over the tempests; Pergamos grants us power over the fire and also grants us telepathy; Thyatira grants us power over the winds; Sardis grants us the power of creation and the occult ear; Philadelphia allows us to see the Angels, Thrones, Potentates, Virtues, etc.; Laodicea is our resplendent lotus of one thousand petals, the Diamond Eye, the Crown of Saints that, with its terrific resplendence, makes the demons scatter; it is the omniscient eye wherein the atom of the Holy Spirit abides.
The Astral Light is the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit, the light of the Logos, whose nature and divine powers are like living and conscious electricity; it is not comparable to the physical electricity that we know.
When a human being is impelled by his conscious, spiritual willpower, he awakens the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit (which as a coiled serpent abides in every human body within the coccygeal ganglion) and excites this fire and impels it into activity; then this fire will convert itself into the agent of work of Telesis or the intelligent work of perfection within the initiate.
The initiate’s reward is the union with God and his liberation from the wheel of reincarnations, and yet, he has to have previously substituted his mortal physical body with the immortal solar body, “To Soma Heliakon” (named in this way because it is as resplendent as the sun). See the end of Quo Vadis. Thus, his soul is betrothed with his Innermost.
Whosoever raises the first serpent christifies his physical body and enters into the first degree of the temple of Major Mysteries; the rain falls and the sun of the Father shines at midnight. The initiate passes into the second degree of Major Mysteries and his Ethereal Body shines like the gold stricken by the light of the sun.
Thus, successively, by himself, he raises his seven fallen, fiery serpents, and christifies his seven bodies in all of the superior planes. The fire of the serpent is as sparkling and magnificent in its visible manifestations as the heavenly fire is in a tempestuous somber night.
In the last chapter, we left the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit spinning the fiery lotus of your cardiac gland from left to right. Now, see and feel the fire descend into your solar plexus (which is situated a little bit above of your navel) and make your fiery lotus, of that gland, spin from left to right (clockwise). That lotus has ten petals: five of a red dirty color which alternate with five of a dark green color. See it, luminous and resplendent, while chanting the following syllables:
While praying, ask your internal God for the realization of your most noble longings; thus, fall asleep.
After taking a shower in the morning (before and during sunrise), stand facing the east, or imagine that in the heavens the sun is a fiery rose in the middle of an enormous golden cross and that thousands of rays of light come from it and penetrate into your body through your solar plexus; at the same time, chant the syllable UN as follows:
Soon, with these practices, the sense of telepathy will be awakened within you.
