I was still very young, and she (the starry night) was named Urania. So, on one of those nights (it does not matter which one), I abandoned this physical body for a while.
How happy I felt while out of the dense body. There is no better pleasure than feeling oneself as a detached soul. Past, present, and future become an eternal now.
To penetrate within the parallel universes becomes relatively easy when one has the Consciousness awakened.
While in the parallel universe of the fifth dimension, I felt the necessity of invoking a Master, thus I cried with a great voice, calling, beseeching, asking.
In an instant, it looked as if the whole universe was transformed; such is the power of the Word.
The silver cord has the power of infinitely elongating itself. This is how souls can freely travel throughout the starry space.
So, I travelled a lot and arrived at the temple. Filled with ecstasy, I advanced upon the mysterious path that conducts the initiates to the doors of this very saintly place. I was then unexpectedly attacked by a great beast, by a Mithraic bull, which was dreadful in a great manner.
Without boasting of valor, I tell you, beloved reader, that I did not feel fear. I confronted the animal in a resolute and blunt way, holding it by its horns. Thus, I managed to sink it down to the ground.
However, in those precise moments, something unusual happened. Before my astonished Consciousness, a chain of iron dropped, and as if by magic, the terrible animal disappeared.
I intuitively comprehended everything in those moments. Clearly, I needed to make myself free, to break the enslaving chains, to eliminate the animal ego.
Afterwards, I continued on my way and entered through the doors of the temple. I became inebriated by an exquisite spiritual voluptuousness. Certainly, I would not change those instants, not even for all the gold of the world.
What happened afterwards is well known by the Gods, and now I write it for the humans.
I saw the chariot of the centuries, which was driven by three Masters of the White Lodge, and a venerable elder was in this chariot of mystery.
How can I forget such a face? Such a countenance? Such an appearance? Such sublime perfection?
The forehead of that elder was certainly high and majestic, his nose straight and perfect, his lips fine and delicate, his ears small and recoiled, his beard white and with an aureole of light, and his hair of an immaculate whiteness was falling over his shoulders.
It is obvious that I could not stop inquiring about him, since he was terribly divine and formidable.
“His name is Peter,” answered one of the Hierophants who was driving the chariot of the centuries.
Then after... oh God of mine!... I abased myself on the ground before this elder of the centuries, and filled with infinite love and compassion, while speaking in the golden language, he blessed me.
Patar, Peter, said:
“Behold I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious...
“Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.
“And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.” - 1 Peter 2:6, 7, 8
But then, what about the Holy Grail? Is it not perhaps the same initiatic stone?
The grail is a precious stone that was brought to the Earth by the Angels and entrusted to an initiatic fraternity for its custody. This fraternity was named the Grail Custodians.
Here we are then with the stone of Jacob, the sacred stone of the Scottish Liafail, the Cubic Stone of Yesod, which the Hebraic Kabbalists locate in the sex.
The legitimate text from Wolfram von Eschenbach, related to this Holy Stone and to the White Brotherhood who wisely have custody of it, is as follows:
“... The Grail castle recalls the pagan otherworld, where there is no aging and no disease, and where the immortals feast on whatever they like best. But the Grail is now a stone which resembles the Philosopher's Stone of the alchemists. It too surpassed all earthly perfection, cured disease, and kept its possessor forever young.
“I will tell you how they are fed: they live from a stone whose Essence is pure...It is called lapis exilis [Magnes]. By virtue of [Magic] this stone the Phoenix is burned to ashes, in which she is reborn. Thus does the Phoenix molt her feathers, after which she shines dazzling and bright, and as lovely as before. However ill a mortal man may be, from the day on which he sees the Stone, he cannot die for that week, nor does he lose his color. For if anyone, maid or man, were to look at the Grail for two hundred years, you would have to admit that his color was as fresh as in his early prime...Such powers does the Stone confer on mortal men that their flesh and bones are soon made young again. This stone is also called the Grail...” – Parsifal by Wolfram von Eschenbach
This initiatic stone is esoterically converted into the Hermes cup, into the sacred chalice.
Pedro, Patar, Peter, the initiatic Revelation, is within the sex, and anything that is not through this way signifies a useless loss of time.
It becomes tremendously significant that as much in the north of America as well as in the same whole continent, we can find engraved on the stones the Laftar, or Rune Laf, whose meaning is Savior.
It is obvious that we must build the church for the intimate Christ upon the living stone. Woe to those who build their interior temple upon the quicksand of theories. Rain will fall, rivers will run, and their house will crumble into the abyss, where only weeping and the gnashing of teeth are heard.
If we join two Lafs by their arms, then we have the letter M of matrimony.
It is clear and certain by all means that only by treading upon the path of the perfect matrimony can the Wedding Garment of the soul be attained. This Garment is the perfect synthesis of the Solar Bodies.
Woe to those unhappy ones who present themselves at the banquet of the Lord without the Wedding Garment.
The command of the King is written:
“Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” - Matthew 22:13, 14
The practice that corresponds to this Rune consists of going towards the Sun in the morning. In the moments of sunrise, adopt a mystical attitude, that is, lift the hands as shown by the Rune. In this way, one implores unto It (the Sun, Christ) for esoteric help.
This practice must be performed on the 27th of each month.
