The human beings of Atlantis reached a very high degree in their civilization, similar to that of the Lemurians. During that time, the Earth was enveloped by a thick mist, and the human beings breathed through gills. The Lemurian flying ships and boats propelled with atomic energy were also known in Atlantis.
In the beginning of that civilization, sexual relations were only performed with the objective of engendering bodies for reincarnating souls. The proper day and hour was chosen by the angels, and for this reason childbearing was painless. Human beings were living in a paradisiacal state; yet, Lucifer and the lucifers, the black magicians from the Lunar period, tempted the human being, and they misled him towards the black path.
The serpent is the sexual force, not simply material attraction, as supposed by the Rosicrucians in their monographs of the ninth degree.
The sexual force has two poles: positive and negative. The positive is the serpent of bronze that healed the Israelites in the wilderness. The negative is the tempting serpent of Eden.
The work of the lucifers was a work of black magic. They awoke the passionate fire of humanity with the single purpose of creating proselytes for the Black Lodge, since every demon is a fornicator.
The cephalic-rachis liquid and the semen are the poles of the sexual energy. The angel has the two poles upwards, towards his head. The common and current human beings and the demons have one pole upward and the other downward. They form the brain with one pole, and they fornicate with the other pole.
The Kundalini of the angel goes upwards; yet, the demon’s Kundabuffer goes downwards.
Jehovah prohibited Fornication to man, yet Lucifer seduced him towards it.
“And Jehovah Elohim commanded the man saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shall not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” - Genesis 2:16-17
“And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.
“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” - Genesis 3:4-5
The commandment given by Jehovah is White Magic. The commandment given by Lucifer is black magic.
When the human being delivered himself to the pleasures of coitus, he lost his occult powers. Thus, the words of Jehovah were accomplished, when he said:
“In the sweat of thy face shall thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” - Genesis 3:19
“Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shall bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” - Genesis 3:16
The violation of any law always brings pain. Childbearing was painless for the women in Lemuria, because the child was engendered in the very hour, minute, and second that the cosmic laws favored for reproduction. Thus, violation of this law brought pain in childbirth.
Nonetheless, in this day and age there is still a remedy for those who resolve to follow the Gnostic matrimony.
The Gnostic matrimony returns the human being to paradise. In the Gnostic Church, the Gnostic matrimonies receive the exact day, hour, and minute in which they have to engender their children. Thus, there is no pain in childbirth. What is important is to know how to travel in the Astral body in order to visit the Gnostic Temple. I will give these clues later on.
The Lemurians did not know death. They knew the exact date and hour of their disincarnation, and so they dug their own tombs. They abandoned their own body by will and with a smile on their lips.
They also never disappeared from the sight of their relatives, because they were clairvoyant. They kept coexisting with the dead because death was simply a passage into a different state. But when the human being lost his powers because of coitus, then he knew death.
