It was in winter when Master Jesus went into the wilderness. The weather was cold in Egypt, and there it was: an ancient, solitary, worn and eroded Egyptian temple of mysteries. Master Jesus entered the atrium, and while kneeling with all humility before the great hierophants, he requested to be admitted into the remarkable mysteries of the fifth serpent of burning fire.
The great Egyptian sages granted him admission. Then Master Jesus left the room and entered a small sanctuary of the solitary temple. In winter, the masters customarily wrapped themselves with blue and white religious shawls in order to be protected from the cold weather.
Thus, this is how Master Jesus entered into the mysteries of the fifth serpent, which ascends through the central canal of the spinal medulla of the Will-soul (the Human Soul, Tiphereth).
We have already stated that the Innermost has two souls, namely, the Will-soul and the Cognizance-soul (Divine Soul, Geburah). The sixth serpent relates to the Cognizance-soul; the seventh pertains to the Innermost itself.
There are seven serpents; two groups of three with the sublime coronation of the seventh tongue of fire which unites us with the One, with the Law, with the Father.
Therefore, the Innermost with his two twin souls is a pure and ineffable spirit (Monad). Thus, the four material bodies are the temple of the eternal triune Spirit. This is why Paul of Tarsus wrote in 1 Corinthians 3:16: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” The Spirit of God is the Innermost in us. The Testament of Learning states: “Before the false dawn came over this earth, those who survived the hurricane and the storm gave praise to the Innermost, and to them appeared the heralds of the dawn.”
The human personality is the chariot, the mind is the animal that hauls the chariot, the Innermost is the coachman, the reins are the consciousness, and the whip is willpower. Woe unto the coachman who does not know how to hand over the reins! Woe unto the coachman who does not know how to handle the whip, because he will keep his whip and reins in hand and will not be able to use them! The beast without control will drag the chariot into the abyss, and the Innermost will lose his chariot.
In this day and age, there are many perverse people who are severed from their Innermost. These are crowds who follow a terribly tenebrous devolution in the abyss. All these devolving people have horns on their foreheads. Some of them are demons endowed with sparkling intellects, who boast of being prophets and avatars. Thus, shrouded within fine manners and exquisite culture, they often establish spiritual schools. Yes, within the privileged ranks of aristocracy are thousands of learned, educated, and intellectual people, who even follow mystical traditions, yet they are already totally severed from their Innermost. These are souls who have horns on their foreheads; they are tenebrous demons. These types of souls possess only the four bodies of sin (physical, ethereal, astral, and mental bodies). Unfortunately, their triune immortal Spirit is no longer linked within them. They live in the physical world, yet internally they dwell within the abyss.
The mind has to be lashed with the whip of willpower. It is necessary to learn how to use the whip. The Will-soul has to be Christified by means of the transmutation of human will into Christ-will; these are the mysteries of the fifth serpent.
Only Christ-will knows how to do the will of the Father on earth as it is in heaven. The majesty of Christ-will is portrayed in the nine symphonies of Beethoven. Yes, Christ-will is ineffable music that echoes the majesty of the Word.
Nevertheless, humans place their will at the service of the beast, and therefore they fail. This is why the divine Master Jesus said in Luke 22:42: “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” Subsequently, thanks to his priestess-wife, the divine Master Jesus managed to lift his fifth serpent upon a pole.
When the initiate awakens his fifth serpent, he then enters into the temple, whose altar is adorned with the sacred shawl of Veronica. The divine face with the crown of thorns stained on the shawl is the living symbol of Christ-will. This symbolizes total sacrifice on behalf of the wretched, suffering humanity. All initiates carry their cross here, within the world of the will (sixth dimension).
Christ-will only knows how to comply with superior orders. It respects the free will of others. It does not exercise coercion over others, not even in teasing, because that is black magic.
In the world of the will, the soul is crucified in order to save humanity.
The ascension of the fifth serpent through the spinal medulla of the Will-soul is very slow and difficult. Thus, when the fifth serpent reached the fifth holy center of the heart of the Buddha Jesus of Nazareth, he then entered a sacred precinct where a great Egyptian initiate priestess told him, “Among many, the master is disputed.” Indeed, my brothers and sisters, all sects and religious ministries debate over Master Jesus a great deal.
Subsequently, Master Jesus entered into a great hall of the temple. Here, many aged masters were practicing sexual magic with their wives. They were heroically struggling in order to lift their fifth serpent under the guidance of a great hierophant who, smiling, contemplated the venerable elders performing sexual magic, which is the unutterable secret of the Great Arcanum.
In ancient Egypt, those who dared to divulge the Great Arcanum were condemned to the death penalty. Their heads were severed, their hearts were snatched from their bodies, and thereafter their ashes were tossed into the four winds.
In the Middle Ages, those who divulged the Great Arcanum were killed, sometimes by the poison-stained tunic of Nessus, or the dagger, or the scaffold.
Nevertheless, now we publicly deliver the Great Arcanum in order to initiate the new Aquarian Age. The Great Arcanum is sexual magic.
When Jesus lifted up his fifth serpent, he totally upraised himself again, since he was fallen. The initiatic feast of the Buddha Jesus was majestic. Then the sacred female dancers happily danced in the temple. The sacred dances and its music enclose clues of immense occult power.
He did not need to lift up his sixth and seventh serpents because those fires belong to the internal master, and he never falls. The one who falls is the Human Soul, which is the bodhisattva of the master.
In this Dark Age, there are a great number of fallen bodhisattvas. One of them is Andrameleck who became a horrible demon, presently incarnated in China. These bodhisattvas are common and ordinary people. Many of them are puffed up with vices and wickedness like Javhe, who is the genie of evil, a fallen angel. These types of bodhisattvas reincarnate incessantly in order to pay karma, They suffer and enjoy life, since they are like other people. Obviously, the internal master cannot enter into them until they upraise themselves from the clay of the earth. Daniel, Solomon, and many others are fallen.
This age of Kali Yuga was fatal for many bodhisattvas who, when fallen, are worse than demons. For example, feeling compassion for a prostitute, an archangel sent his bodhisattva to assist her, yet his weak bodhisattva fell sexually with her, thus the bodhisattva lost his sword and sank into the clay of the earth. Logically, this bodhisattva remained disunited from his Innermost, and only after many painful reincarnations the bodhisattva upraised himself once again. Finally he became fused with his God anew.
