Tepeu K’Ocumatz is the Ancient of Days among the Aztecs. The Ancient of Days is androgynous, meaning masculine and feminine at the same time. The Ancient of Days is the Father inside of us. Therefore, Tepeu K’Ocumatz is the Being of our Being. He is the first and last synthesis of our Being. The Elder of Days is the first emanation of the Absolute. An Ancient of Days exists within the depth of the consciousness of each human being.

The hair of the Ancient of Days has thirteen ringlets. If we add thirteen together, we will have 1 + 3 = 4. One is the masculine principle, fire; two is the feminine principle, water; three is the Son of creation; plus, the unity of life equals four. This is the holy Tetragrammaton. This is the name of the Eternal One: יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei:

The beard of the Ancient of Days has thirteen locks. This beard represents the hurricane, the four winds, the breath, the Word. The four winds are יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei. The Ancient of Days is the goodness of goodness, the occult of the occult, the absolute mercy. The mantra PANDER permits us to reach the Ancient of Days. This is possible through profound meditation.

In the world of Atziluth, there exists a marvelous temple where the majestic presence of the Ancient of Days is shown to us. In order to Self-realize the Ancient of Days within, we must totally perform the Thirteenth Arcanum within ourselves. We need a supreme death and a supreme resurrection.

The Ancient of Days dwells in the world of Kether. The chief of that world is the angel Metatron. This angel was the prophet Enoch. With the help of this angel, while in a very profound meditation, we can enter into the world of Kether. The disciple who wants to penetrate into Kether will beg the angel Metatron during his states of profound meditation and he will be assisted.

The Aztec goddess of death has a crown with nine human skulls. The crown is the symbol of the Ancient of Days. The skull is the microcosmic correspondence of the Ancient of Days in the human being. Indeed, we need a supreme death of the human personality; the human personality must die. We need a supreme resurrection in order to Self-realize the Ancient of Days within ourselves.

In the world of Kether, we comprehend that the Great Law rules all that is created. From the world of the Ancient of Days, we see the human multitudes as leaves hurled by the wind. The great wind is the terrible law of the Ancient of Days. Vox Populi Vox Dei. A social revolt contemplated from the world of the Ancient of Days is a law in action. Each person, the entire multitude, looks like leaves detached from the trees hurled by the terrible wind of the Ancient of Days.

People do not know these things. People are only preoccupied with acquiring money and more money. This is the poor, suffering humanity, who are only miserable leaves hurled by the great wind, miserable leaves hurled by the Great Law.

Our authentic Being in his essential root is the Ancient of Days. He is the Father within us. He is our true Being.

Our disciples must now concentrate and meditate very deeply upon the Ancient of Days. They must provoke voluntary slumber during meditation. Thus, this is how they will attain very profound illumination.

May peace reign in all hearts. Let us not forget that peace is light. Let us not forget that peace is an essence emanated from the Absolute. It is light emanated from the Absolute. This light is the light of the Ancient of Days. Christ said, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. - John 14:27

"We should not mistake the Truth with opinions. Many think that the Truth is this or that, or that the Truth is within this or that book, or within this or that belief or idea, etc. Whosoever wants to experience the Truth should not mistake beliefs, ideas, opinions and theories with that which is the Truth. We must experience the Truth in a direct, practical and real manner; this is only possible in the stillness and silence of the mind, and this is achieved by means of meditation."
