If there is human cruelty, then it is true that there is also spiritual cruelty.
All of us who love the light have already passed through many types of “isms”; that is to say, we have known the schools of Theosophism, Rosicrucianism, Spiritualism, etc., etc. Thus, where only love, brotherhood, fraternity and peace were proclaimed, we really only found hypocritical Pharisees, whitened sepulchers, resentment disguised within garbs of philosophy, terrible fanaticism and secret gossiping. Where we searched for wisdom we only found charlatanry, vanity and stubborn pride.
There is no stab that hurts more than spiritual cruelty. Thus, the poor souls who long for their superlative perfection and for their spiritual self-ennoblement suffer the unutterable on their journey, when they search for the Truth inside all of those famous spiritualistic schools.
From those spiritualistic brothers all the infamies and scoundrely tricks are received. Yet, their worst cruelties are always disguised with philosophical phrases and sweet smiles.
Hence, there is no stab that hurts more than the spiritual stab.
Moral sicknesses can only be cured with the magic of the roses. Therefore, all those people who are sick because of a spiritual stab can be cured with the magic of the roses.
Those poor souls who have a very deep emotional pain let them be cured with the magic of the roses.
The rose is the queen of the flowers. The rose is influenced by Venus, the star of love, the morning star. A great ineffable Master lives in that star. The name of this Master is “Llanos” (pronounced Janos).
The chela (disciple) who wants to visit the morning star with his Astral body will operate in the following way:
With his body well relaxed, he will lay down. He will get a little bit drowsy and then vocalize with his mind the following prayer:
"Llanos... Llanos... Llanos... Help me, Lla... ma... dor... Lla... ma... dor... Lla... nos... Lla... nos... Lla... nos..." [the "ll" is pronounced as the "j" is "jack" - "Janos"]
Then, when the disciple finds himself drowsy (half asleep), he must sit up softly in his bed, throw the blankets off of him and get out of bed. Thus, once he is standing on the floor, he must jump with the intention of floating within the air. If he floats, then he must leave his house while floating in the atmosphere, pronouncing the invocation of the Master Llanos in the same way as when he was in bed.
The Master Llanos is an inhabitant of the planet Venus. He will hear the call from the invoker (the llamador). He will help him in order to arrive to Venus, the star of the Roses, the morning star.
The disciple will be welcomed by the Master Llanos when arriving to Venus, and if he wants wisdom, then the Master will illuminate him.
The disciple will be overwhelmed because of the ineffable resplendence which springs out from the aura and from the diamond tunic of the Master Llanos.
This Master has already united himself with his Glorian. Therefore, he wears a diamond tunic.
During the hour of Venus, the astral atmosphere is filled with a pink light of ineffable beauty.
A Guru once told me the following, “My son, this is a very dangerous hour for astral projection, because all the world is filled with a pink light...”
This Master was right. If it is true that in the hour of Venus the positive ray from this star is filling everything with light, music and love, it is also true and very real that the negative ray from Lucifer-Venus, that is the ray of the Black Magician Lucifer and of all of the Lucifers and tenebrous Initiates from the copper cauldron, is also active.
Yet, if the disciple lives a pure and chaste life, then he will have nothing to fear of the magicians from darkness.
Fortunately, Lucifer and the Lucifers have already fallen into the abyss...
This clue which we give here in order to travel in the Astral body to the star Venus, I, Samael Aun Weor, received from the great Egyptian Initiate Mary, mother of Jesus of Nazareth.
Tradition tells us that when Mary was making carpets for the temple of Jerusalem, those carpets were transforming themselves into roses.
The lines from the hands of Mary, mother of Jesus, clearly tell us that she had a rich suitor in her first youth, whom she did not want to accept because her only yearning was to become a priestess of the light.
Mary suffered very much with the event of the Divine Rabbi from Galilee. She had only one spouse, who was Joseph the initiate, and only one son, who was the Divine Master.
Therefore, Mary was an authentic pure and holy Gnostic Priestess. Her face was bronzed by the desert sun, her body was fine and agile. She was short in stature, slightly flat-nosed and her upper lip protruded just a little. This Master was humbly dressed. She had comfort in the first years of her life. Yet, later in her life she was very poor. She used to wear a brown colored tunic that was faded and patched, since she was living in poverty.
Her holy life accomplished the most grandiose mission that can be granted unto a human being. Now, she, this prominent Master, is reincarnated again in the valley of the Nile.
On this occasion, she was born with a masculine body. This great soul came in order to accomplish a great worldly mission.
Magic Formula of the Rose in Order to Be Healed from an Emotional Pain
Place three crystal glasses filled with pure water upon a table, with one rose in each glass. These glasses must be arranged so that they will form a triangle, one glass towards the north, another towards the east and another towards the west.
Each glass must be blessed by the person performing this rite, who will drink the three glasses of rose water daily in the following sequence: Before breakfast, drink the glass of water which faces the east. Before lunch drink the glass of water which faces the north. Before dinner, drink the glass of water which faces the west.
This treatment must be accompanied by a sincere supplication to the Intimate (Spirit) and to the White Fraternity, so they may help the person become free from the emotional pain in which he is situated.
Any emotional pain, as grave as it might be, will be cured with this formula, which is repeated for several days.
When and during what epoch has any physician cured sufferings of an emotional nature?
How many people die daily or get sick because of emotional sufferings? Nonetheless, it is sad to say that there has never been a compassionate person who has delivered to humanity the exact formula in order to cure emotional pains.
Cases of suicide are innumerable and nobody has ever spoken about the magic of the Roses.
Many certified physicians can be blamed for deaths that occur daily. Yet, human justice cannot reach them, even when, so to speak, they can fill up a cemetery on their own.
I knew young people who were humble and modest while they were simple students from the faculty of medicine. Yet, as soon as they received their physician’s title, they became proud, vain and despotic. Medicine is a very sacred priesthood. Therefore, by no means can a despotic or proud individual ever be an authentic physician.
Editor's Note: The best way to do this practice is to pick roses from nature or grow your own. Obviously, if you purchase roses in a modern market, you have to contend with the poisons that are on them. We always emphasize the importance of avoiding the ingestion of chemicals. If you have no alternative but purchasing roses, you can buy organic roses in some natural food stores or at various shops online.
The Queen of the Flowers
The rose is the Queen of the flowers. When we investigate in the internal worlds the vegetal magic of the Roses, we can evidence that the rituals of the Queen of the flowers are our own Gnostic rituals.
Some authentic Rosicrucian Temples exist in the internal worlds. One of them is the Temple of Monserrat, Cataluña (Spain) and another is the Temple of Chapultepec in Mexico.
The true sanctuaries from the true Rose-Cross order are totally Gnostic.
The Gnostic-Rosicrucian ray has its temples of mysteries only in the internal worlds.
The Rose, with its immaculate beauty, encloses the most ineffable spiritual wisdom from the Universe. The rituals of First, Second and Third Degree are the Gnostic magic of the Queen of the flowers. All the plants have their sacred rites. Yet, the sacred rites of the Queen of the flowers are our holy rituals.
