We have come to a very thorny point: I would like to refer to the question of the Kundalini, the igneous serpent of our magical powers mentioned in so many texts of oriental wisdom.
Without a doubt, the Kundalini has been well documented and it is something well worth investigating.
In texts of Medieval Alchemy, the Kundalini is the astral signature of the sacred sperm, Stella Maris, Virgin of the Sea, who wisely guides those who labor in the Great Work.
Among the Aztecs, she was known as Tonantzin, among the Greeks as chaste Diana. In Egypt she was Isis, the Divine Mother, whose veil no mortal has lifted.
There is no doubt at all that esoteric Christianity has never forsaken the worship of the Divine Mother Kundalini. Obviously she is Marah, or better said, RAM-IO, MARY.
What orthodox religions did not specify, at least with regard to the exoteric or public circle, is the aspect of Isis in her individual human form.
Clearly, it was taught only in secret to the Initiates that this Divine Mother exists individually within each human being.
It cannot be emphasized enough that Mother-God, Rhea, Cybele, Adonia, or whatever we wish to call her, is a variant of our own individual Being in the here and now.
Stated explicitly, each of us has our own particular, individual Divine Mother.
There are as many Mothers in heaven as there are beings who live on the face of the earth.
The Kundalini, an aspect of Brahma, is the mysterious energy that makes the world exist.
In her psychological aspect manifested in the hidden anatomy of human beings, the Kundalini is found coiled up three and a half times within a certain magnetic center situated in the coccygeal bone.
There, resting numbly like any other snake, lies the Divine Princess.
In the center of that chakra, or abode, there is a female triangle, or yoni, wherein a male lingam is established.
In this atomic or magical lingam (which represents the creative sexual power of Brahma) the sublime serpent Kundalini is coiled up.
The igneous Queen, in her serpent form, awakens with the secretum secretorum of a certain alchemical craft that I have clearly taught in my book entitled The Mystery of the Golden Blossom.
Unquestionably, when this divine force awakens, it ascends victoriously up through the spinal medullar canal to develop powers of deification.
The sacred serpent, in its transcendental, divine, subliminal aspect, transcends the merely physiological and anatomical. In its ethnic state, it is as I have already said, our own Being, though derived.
It is not my purpose in this treatise to teach the techniques with which to awaken the sacred serpent.
I only wish to place certain emphasis on the harsh reality of the ego and the pressing inner need relating to the dissolution of its diverse inhuman elements.
The mind by itself cannot radically alter any psychological defect.
The mind can put a label on any defect, transfer it from one level to another, conceal it from ourselves or others, excuse it, etc., but never absolutely eliminate it.
Comprehension is a fundamental part, but it is not everything. Elimination is necessary.
An observed defect must be analyzed and understood completely before proceeding to eliminate it.
We need a power superior to the mind, a power capable of atomically disintegrating any I-defect which we have previously discovered and judged in depth.
Fortunately, such a power lies profoundly latent, beyond the body, the affections and the mind; although (as explained in previous paragraphs of this chapter), it has its actual exponents in the central bone of the coccyx.
After having fully understood any I-defect, we must submerge ourselves in profound meditation, imploring, praying, and asking our particular, individual Divine Mother to disintegrate the previously understood defect.
This is the precise technique required for the elimination of those undesirable elements that we carry within.
The Divine Mother Kundalini has the power to reduce any subjective and inhuman psychic aggregate to ashes.
Without this technique, without this procedure, all efforts to dissolve the ego are fruitless, pointless, and absurd.
