When speaking in the golden language, in the very pure gold of divine language, with mystical astonishment we discover that in Syrian bar signifies “son.”
Baron: This word in itself is broken down into two sacred syllables, bar and on. This must be intelligently translated as “the son of the earth.”
Christ, the Solar Logos, is something more profound. In the Aramaic language, Christ is Bar‑Ham, the Son of Man.
Certainly, the Christos or the cosmic and triumphant Chrestos, is not Jesus, though He was incarnated within him. He was neither the Buddha, but He flourished in his fertile lips made Word. He was not Moses, but He shone in his face, there on mount Nebo. He was not Hermes, but He lived reincorporated within him. The Lord Chrestos is without individuality.
Whosoever knows, the Word gives power to. No one has uttered It, no one will utter It, except the one who has incarnated It (the Word, Christ).
“The son of Man [whether he is named Jesus, Buddha, Krishna or any other name] must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders [those who are passing in this world as being prudent, judicious and discreet] and chief priests [constituted by men with mundane authority] and scribes [those who pass as being wise in this world], and be slain, and be raised the third day... But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
“...If any man will come after me, let him deny himself [let him dissolve the “I”], and take up his cross daily, and follow me... For whosoever will save his soul [the egocentric person] shall lose it; but whosoever will lose his soul for my sake [the one who wants to die within himself], the same shall save it.
“For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
“For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and my words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.” - Luke 9:22-27
When we study cosmic grammar, then we can verify for ourselves that an intimate relationship exists between the Runes Tyr or Tir and Bar.
Tir esoterically corresponds to the zodiacal sign of Pisces, and Bar burningly shines in the brilliant constellation of Aries. This reminds us of the existing occult relationship between water and fire, death and life.
If we place before the sacred syllable Ar the letter B, then we indicate with this the necessity of attracting the Sun to the Earth. Ar‑Bar‑Man is the primeval name of Abraham.
To incarnate Christ in and within oneself is what is vital, cardinal, and fundamental in order to convert oneself into the Son of Man. This is the only way to earn the right to enter into the Order of Melchizedek.
It becomes opportune to remind the children of the Earth, the dwellers of this world, this Lunar race, that just as the water put an end to ancient history, as well, very soon now, the fire will destroy everything with life that is thereon.
Woe! Woe! Woe to the dwellers of the earth; woe to this perverse race of Adam.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. - II Peter 3:10
It is good for the children of the Earth to know that the Solar Race dwells within “the One Thousand and One Nights,” the Jinn lands.
Truly, it is urgent, indispensable, and necessary to convert ourselves into kings or queens and priests or priestesses of Nature in accordance with the Order of Melchizedek. This is the only way to be saved.
Among the multiple, disquieting faces of life, we have and must clearly affirm that next to our very side, another humanity exists that is invisible to us because of our sins and sexual abuses.
With the consent of the very venerable and respectable Masters, I have been granted the right to inform the lunar people that the Order of Melchizedek has many confraternities. Let us remember just for a moment the transcendental Monsalvat, the exotic Shamballa, the sacred island of the north that is situated in that polar spherical segment, the Sacred Order of Tibet to which I have the honor of being affiliated, etc.
It is obvious that such ineffable corporations are unapproachable, thanks to the Veil of Isis. It is beneficial to explain to people that the sexual Adamic veil can only be lifted up by the intimate Christ.
The Son of Man is born from the fire and the water. This is the synthesis religion, the doctrine of Jano with its three radicals: I.A.O. But the children of the Earth abhor this doctrine, since their motto is, “Let us eat and drink, since tomorrow we will die.”
It is written that the Atlantean Root Race was devoured by the Averno, and that only the children of the Sun were saved.
This event will be repeated in accordance with the law of recurrence. The entrance of this present humanity into the submerged devolution of this planetary organism on which we live becomes evident.
Three type of churches exist:
- First, the Triumphant Church, represented by the few Knights of the Grail who persisted to remain pure;
- Second, the Failing Church, represented by those who abhor the Initiatic Stone;
- Third, the Militant Church, represented by the others, who as Mary Magdalene, Paul of Tarsus, Kundry, and Amfortas, are still in rebellion against the seductive Luciferic fire.
The Triumphant Church is certainly the church of the brethren who have already remounted upon the harsh path of salvation—Per Aspera Ad Astra, as the Latin motto says—true children of God in the most beautiful, mystical sense.
“Children of God” and “Sons of Men” are synonyms in Christic esotericism. They are the Knights of the Holy Grail.
You must intelligently combine the exercises of the Rune Bar with the exercises of the Rune Tyr or Tir.
Place the arms high above the head, descending them while the hands are cupped as shells, and while singing the mantras Tir, Bar, as follows: Tiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrr, Baaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrr.
Objectives of this practice:
- To wisely mix within our own interior universe the magical forces of the two Runes.
- To awaken Consciousness.
- To intimately accumulate Christic Atoms of high voltage.
