The revolution of the consciousness is the Fifth Gospel.
We urgently need a radical, total, and definitive change. This is only possible by means of the revolution of the consciousness.
The realization of the Inner Self is only possible in isolated individuals, with the help of knowledge and suitable methods. Such an inner revolution can only happen within the individual, and is in fact contrary to the interests of Nature.
The development of all the possibilities hidden in the intellectual animal is not necessary. It is only and exclusively for his own welfare. Neither Nature nor anybody is interested in the development of such individual possibilities.
What is the most grave of all of this is to know that nobody is obligated to assist the revolutionary individual. Nobody has the slightest intention to help this class of revolutionary. One is completely alone, and if a revolutionary Master resolves to guide us, this is really to have had much luck.
The tenebrous forces that are resolutely against the realization of the Inner Self among the great human masses are also resolutely and even violently opposed to the revolutionary individual's realization of the Inner Self. Therefore, every revolutionary individual must be sufficiently astute in order to deceive the tenebrous forces, since the human masses unfortunately cannot do it. Only the revolutionary individual can manage, by his wits, to be readier than these tenebrous forces.
Obligatory or mechanical Self-realization does not exist. The realization of the Inner Self of the human being is the outcome of a conscious fight. Nature does not need the realization of the Inner Self of the human being, it does not want it, it detests it. Thus, nature fights against it with its best weapons.
The realization of the Inner Self can only be an urgent necessity for the revolutionary individual, when he realizes his horrible situation and the abominable fate that awaits him, which is the fate of being voraciously swallowed by the mineral kingdom.
The revolution of the consciousness is only possible in the sense of winning, conquering, our own latent possibilities, our own hidden treasures. If all of the human species wanted to obtain what is theirs by right, then the realization of the Inner Self would be impossible, because what is possible for the revolutionary individual is impossible for the masses.
The advantage that the separated revolutionary has is that, indeed, he is too small. The existence of one more-or-one-less-machine does not have the smallest importance to the aims of great Nature. If one microscopic cell of our body revolts against us, that does not have the smallest importance, but if all the cells of our body revolt against us, then yes, the matter becomes serious and we go to the doctor in order to fight against this revolution with all the weaponry of science. Exactly the same thing happens in an isolated individual: he is too small to influence all the life of the planetary organism upon which we live, move, and have our Being. Therefore, those who affirm that by means of the evolution of Nature all human beings will sooner or later arrive at the realization of the Inner Self are tremendous liars, fraudulent deceivers, because mechanical Self-realization has never existed, and will never exist.
The realization of the Inner Self is the revolution of the consciousness, and the consciousness can never unconsciously revolt. The revolution of the human being is the revolution of one's own will, and this could never be a mechanical type of involuntary revolution. The realization of the Inner Self is the outcome of supreme, voluntary, and perfectly self-cognizant efforts. The realization of the Inner Self demands tremendous individual super-efforts, and these are only possible by means of the revolution of the consciousness.
Jesus Christ, whose nativity we celebrate this night, December 24th, 1965, never promised the kingdom to all human beings. Jesus emphasized the difficulty of entering the kingdom.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. - Matthew 7:19
For many are called, but few are chosen. - Matthew 22:14
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire (the mineral kingdom): there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. - Matthew 13:47-50
Thus, only the truly revolutionary human being can enter the kingdom of white magic, the kingdom of esotericism, the magis regnum, regnum Dei. Jesus said it:
The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. – Matthew 11:12
What is normal, what is natural, is that the race of intellectual animals falsely call human falls into the abyss in order to be devoured by Ammut, the devourer of the dead, whose crocodile jaws prefigured all the mouths of Hell of the Middle Ages. This abominable monster, a symbol of the mineral kingdom with its seven atomic, submerged regions, who is partly reptile, partly lion, and partly hippopotamus, and emerges—according to the sayings of the Egyptians—from an ardent, fiery lake, is the devourer of hearts, the devourer of the unvindicated ones, and who—for the Egyptians—symbolized a kind of terrible cosmic vulture, whose function was to consume the remainders or despoliation of humanity.
Therefore, it is not rare for somebody to enter the mineral kingdom; that is normal, given that the mineral kingdom needs that one for its psychic nourishment. What is rare indeed is for somebody to enter the kingdom of high magic, because into this kingdom only the revolutionaries of the consciousness enter, ardent, like the fire.
