When we profoundly analyze the Rune IS, with mystical astonishment we discover our own Being, the Innermost.
The Testament of Learning says:
Before the false dawn came over this earth, those who survived the hurricane and the storm gave praise to the Innermost, and to them appeared the heralds of the dawn.
In the profound night of all ages, there, in the sunny country of Khem, the Rune IS was studied within the concealed Egyptian Temples. Their paradigm always included the bipolarity of man-woman, masculine-feminine. It is clear that ISIS is the outcome of this paradigm, which is the sacred name of the Eternal Mother Space.
Much has been said in occultism about Prakriti: space as a maternal, feminine entity. Nonetheless, pseudo-esotericists know nothing about that mathematical point within which the Sun-King, the Golden Child of sexual alchemy, is always gestated.
There is no doubt whatsoever that the very root of our own sacred Monad resides within that mysterious point.
Indeed, our particular, adorable, and eternal Divine Mother, who has no beginning nor end, is this very point.
All the sacred powers of the Monad (Atman-Buddhi-Manas) are found contained within our Divine Mother Kundalini. For those who are not well-versed in Theosophy, we will say that all the sacred powers of our own Spirit are found within our own particular Divine Mother, for everyone has their own Mother within.
Pseudo-esotericists and pseudo-occultists have spoken at length about the immortal Triad or Triune Spirit of each living creature. However, they do not comment at all about the unfoldment of Prakriti (the Divine Mother).
She... the Unmanifested, has no symbolism among the Greeks, but in her second manifested aspect within Nature, She is the greatly adored and worshipped chaste Diana.
The third aspect of Prakriti is the blessed Goddess Mother-Death, terror of Love and Law. She is the terrible Hekate, Proserpine, Queen of the Infernos.
Two more unfolding aspects of Prakriti take us into the negative aspect of Nature: That which is undesirable, that which in no way would be beneficial for us: the kingdom of terror and black magic.
It is written that each one of these unfolding aspects of Prakriti are repeated within the Microcosmic Man.
The three superior aspects of Prakriti are fundamental, and we must learn to work with them.
The revolution of the consciousness would be radically impossible without the special help of our own particular, adorable Divine Mother.
She is in Herself our own Being, the root, cause, and origin of our divine Spirit.
She is Isis, whose veil no mortal has lifted. In the flame of the serpent we call upon Her.
Many pseudo-esotericists and pseudo-occultists read the literature of Sivananda. There is no doubt that this man was truly a Guru-Deva who worked intensely for this suffering humanity. I truly confess that I never liked his Hatha Yoga. This type of acrobatics always appeared to me to be quite circus-like. I never found that someone could Self-realize by converting himself into an acrobat. Nonetheless, it is well known that this said yogi profoundly worked in strict secrecy with Sex Yoga. It seems that Hatha Yoga was only a bait in order to fish within the rivers of life.
I am glad to communicate to our beloved readers that this Guru-Deva Sivananda, while being in a Maha-Samadhi (Ecstasy), joyfully disincarnated.
I met him in the parallel universe of the fifth dimension. My happiness was tremendous when I witnessed that this man had built his Solar Bodies in the flaming forge of Vulcan.
My surprise was extraordinary when I verified that this Master had already died within himself before physically dying.
Sivananda intensely worked in the Great Work of the Father. Thus, he is a Guru-Deva in the most complete sense of the word.
Our meeting was very special; it took place inside a precious precinct where I was accomplishing the obligation of teaching. Suddenly, the great yogi entered and, as if wanting to recriminate me, he said, “You are vulgarizing the doctrine.”
It is obvious that he referred to the spread of the knowledge of the Maithuna (Sex Yoga) among profane people.
I was in no way speechless, my answer was strong and sincere; since I belong to the virile fraternity, it could be no other way. I expressed myself energetically when saying, “I am willing to answer all the questions asked of me, before anyone within this precinct.”
However, the Guru-Deva Sivananda, being an enemy of any discussion, preferred to sit in the sacred buddhic posture, and thus submerged himself into profound meditation.
I felt the mind of this yogi inside of my own innermost Self. This man was diving, inquiring, exploring within my most intimate profundities. There is no doubt that Sivananda wanted to converse with my real Being, whose secret name is Samael, and this he achieved.
Astonished, I could do nothing but exclaim, “Sivananda, you are a true Sannyasi of thought!” Filled with ecstasy, this Guru-Deva stood up and hugged me. He now comprehended the revolutionary statement of our doctrine, and exclaimed, “Now I agree with you, and I will tell the whole world to read your books.”
Afterwards, he added, “I know your Mother (referring to my particular Divine Mother). I saw Her very well dressed; She wears a white mantle that reaches to Her feet.”
This meeting was formidable. Many other things happened that I now omit because they are not suitable for this chapter.
Let us now practice with the Rune IS, and let us meditate on the Divine Mother Kundalini.
Standing in an upright position, let us raise our arms in order to form a straight line with the whole body. After praying to and asking for help from our Divine Mother, we must sing the mantra ISIS, as follows: Iiiiiiiiiiisssssss Iiiiiiiiiiisssssss
Prolong the sound of the two letters and divide the word in two syllables IS-IS [The pronunciation of the letter I is similar to that found in the word “tea”].
Afterward, the student must lay down with his relaxed body and, filled with ecstasy, concentrate and meditate on the Divine Mother.
