The church of Thyatira is opened when the serpentine fire reaches the height of the heart.
There are seven sacred centers in the heart and they correspond to the seven degrees of the power of the fire.
The heart is the sanctuary of love. Take heed of sensual love. Do not mix sacred ecstasy with selfish love.
Love is as pure as the morning star. Love is universal. Love is impersonal, ineffable, and impartial.
You must be charitable. We sin against Christian charity when we criticize the religions of others. Cultivate respect and veneration.
Respect your neighbor's beliefs. Respect the religion of your neighbor. Do not force anyone to think your way. Do not criticize. Remember that each head is a world. Do not sin anymore against the charity of Christ.
Humanity is divided and subdivided into groups. Each group requires a special system of teaching. Each group needs its school, its religion, its sect. These are the commandments of the blessed one.
When we criticize others we violate the law of the tranquil heart.
If you are willing to give the last drop of blood for the love of this suffering humanity, then you are one of us.
Whosoever wants to reach the altar of initiation must transform the self into the immolated lamb upon the altar of supreme sacrifice.
It is necessary to love those who hate us, to kiss the beloved hand of the one who whips us, to clean the sandals of the one who humiliates us.
If a poor beggar invites you to eat at his table, eat with him, because that poor beggar is our brother.
If a leper cuts a piece of bread and offers it to you, take it and eat it because that poor leper is your brother; do not despise him.
Always be the last; do not aspire to be the first. Seat yourself on the last seats; never occupy the first place. Remember that you are nothing but a poor sinner. Do not be proud of perfection because only your Father who is in secret is perfect.
Your internal God is filled with glory, but you are only a poor slug that slithers in the mud. You are not perfect.
Do not hold resentments against your neighbor. Remember that your neighbor is not perfect either. Act not with resentment or revenge. Love, forgive, and kiss the hand of the executioner who whips you.
It is necessary for your “I” to be annihilated in order for the great Lord of the light to enter into your soul.
Dress with light, my brother, my sister. Hear the ten mystical sounds of the tranquil heart.
The first sound is like the voice of the Son of Man that fecundates the waters of genesis in order for life to sprout.
The second is the sound chini-chini.
The third is the supreme sound of the great cosmic bell that emanates from the internal ray of each human being.
The fourth is the internal thunder of the heart whose solemn vibration is repeated within the body of each human being.
The fifth is like the delectable sound of the lute.
The sixth is the cymbals of the ineffable gods that resound within the chalice of each blessed flower.
The seventh sound is that of the magic flute whose virginal melodies carry us to the supreme joy of the gardens of Nirvana.
The eighth sound is that of the Bheri (drum).
The ninth sound is that of the exotic variation of a double drum (Mridanga).
The tenth is the sound of seven resounding thunders.
When we reach the ninth hour and are crucified upon the cross of Golgotha, we exclaim with a great voice, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit” (Luke 23:46).
This supreme instant of the ninth hour occurs with terrible lightning, words, voices, and thunder. The seven thunders utter the voices of the eternal one.
Only those who have experienced the supreme death of the “I,” the ego, the myself, know how to pronounce the seventh word. The fight against Satan is terrible for them. The women seal the sepulchers of the initiates with a great stone, the blessed philosophical stone.
The supreme spear of pain passes through the hearts of the great initiates, and from their wound flows blood and water.
The raw matter of the Great Work is the sacred wine.
You will hear the ten mystical sounds when you meditate internally in the lotus of the heart.
When we meditate on the lotus of the heart we control the tattva Vayu, and the power of winds and hurricanes is given to us.
The lotus of the heart has fifteen petals that shine with the fire of the Holy Spirit.
Within the chakra of the heart there is an octagonal space with an ineffable jet black color. In this space, the ten mystical sounds of the church of Thyatira resound like a symphony of Beethoven.
The great rhythms of Mahavan and Chotavan firmly sustain the universe in its march.
The rhythms of fire are the foundation of the exquisite harmonies of the cosmic diapason. If you visit Nirvana during an ecstasy, then you must accomplish the sacred duty of singing in accordance with the rhythms of fire. Thus, this is how you will help us (the Nirvanis) with your Word. The universe is sustained by the Word.
If you want to travel consciously in the internal worlds, you must develop the chakra of the heart.
If you want to reach the Christ, then you must kill desire. You must obtain the characteristics of a lemon.
If you want to learn how to place your body in the state of “Jinn,” then you must develop the chakra of the heart.
With the system of internal meditation, we can develop the chakra of the tranquil heart.
“And unto the (atomic) angel of the church in Thyatira write: These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
“I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.” —Revelation 2:18-19
Charity, service, faith, and patience are the virtues required in order to open the church of Thyatira.
“Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.” —Revelation 2:20
Jezebel is that harlot woman dressed in purple and scarlet. She is the intellectual mind that teaches us to fornicate and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. Jezebel is politics, journalism, diplomacy, materialistic science, intellectualism of any type, etc.
In ancient times, Jezebel taught human beings to eat things offered unto idols in the temples of black magic. Jezebel signifies intellectualism, feasts, drunkenness, orgies, gluttony, fornication, adultery, materialistic science, etc. Jezebel is symbolized by the turkey and the pig.
“And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
“Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.” —Revelation 2:21-22
Jezebel is the satanic mind that does not want to repent of its evil deeds.
The times of the end have arrived, and Jezebel, along with all who commit adultery with her, will be cast into a bed of pain.
The dwellers of the Earth have committed adultery with Jezebel as well as the potentates of gold and silver, the vultures of war, and the intellectuals who abhor the eternal one.
“And I will kill her children with death (the children of Jezebel are the dwellers of the earth: the intellectuals, the merchants of fine linen, gold and silver, silk and scarlet, precious wood, brass, iron, and marble); and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the kidneys and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” —Revelation 2:23
When the renal (kidney) chakras shine with immaculate whiteness like the lotus flower, it is because we have reached supreme chastity.
When the renal chakras are dyed with a bloody passionate color, woe to us! for we are fornicators and the Word casts us into the abyss with his sword. Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth!
The Word searcheth the kidneys (reins) and the hearts; and gives unto each one of us in accordance with our works.
Whosoever wants to open the church of Thyatira must have the mind of a child.
Those who commit adultery with Jezebel who called herself a prophetess cannot know the wisdom of the tranquil heart.
Love and wisdom are the secret path of the heart. The wisdom of the seal of the heart is for children, in other words, for those who do not commit adultery with Jezebel who called herself a prophetess.
If you want to open the church of Thyatira, you must attain the lost infancy.
Jezebel is Satan. Jezebel is the “I,” the myself, the ego that we carry within.
“But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
“But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
“And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
“And he shall rule them with a rod of iron: as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I receiveth of my Father.
“And I will give him the morning star.
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the spirit saith unto the churches.” —Revelation 2:24-29
When we decapitate and dissolve the “I,” the myself, then we receive the Venustic Initiation.
Whosoever receives the Venustic Initiation incarnates his star.
It is urgent to know that the star crucified upon the cross is the Christ of the Abraxas.
The star is the Son of Man, the truth. No one can search for the truth. The truth cannot be known by the “I.” No one can search for the truth because no one can search for that which they do not know.
Jezebel, who called herself a prophetess, cannot know the truth.
The truth cannot be studied, read, or known by the mind. The truth is completely different, distinct from all of that which is read, studied, or known by the mind.
The truth comes to us when we have decapitated and dissolved the “I.”
The distinct truths of people are nothing but projections of the mind.
The times of the end have arrived, and all of those who commit adultery with Jezebel who called herself a prophetess “as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers.”
When the devotee enters into the chamber of the pure spirit, he feels a delectable terror. This sacred chamber is illuminated by an immaculate and divine light that gives life, yet does not cast a shadow upon the way of anyone.
Whosoever reaches the heights of contemplation and illumination will see in this chamber of the pure spirit the living picture of the event of Golgotha. No wise man on Earth could have painted so much beauty. This picture has its own life. The stigmata of the beloved bleed, and with his blood he dyes the land of Golgotha red. His beloved temples, pierced with the cruel thorns of the crown of martyrdom, bleed painfully, and from his wounded side, pierced by the lance of Longinus, flows blood and water. This picture has abundant life. The sun sets within its bed of purple. The craniums of the executed ones and the shadow of death are at the foot of Calvary.
Do not be afraid, faithful devotee; behold, the shadow of death is rising. Do not be afraid; rather, defeat it. Remember that the Lord defeated death.
Flee, oh death, before my steps even to the end of the world and evermore! You shall be my slave and I shall be your lord!
Death has fled, but behold what is in the middle of the sanctuary. It is a gigantic specter dressed in the style of the princes of the Middle Ages. He is the prince of this world, proud and perverse. He is your own “I.” You must decapitate him with your flaming sword and then you must dissolve him with rigorous purifications. Thus, this is how you will reach the Venustic Initiation. Then you will incarnate the truth. The Word will be made flesh in you. You will incarnate the Son of Man and you will receive the morning star.
