The radiant, inward, and upward ascension of the Seventh Venustic Serpent along the spinal medullar spiritual canal of the divine vehicle (Atman) granted me a vivid experience of the event at Golgotha.
Unquestionably, I need to frankly and plainly utter, to confess, that as a concrete, clear, and definitive fact, I saw myself transformed into the central personage of this “cosmic drama.”
To experience this cosmic event of Calvary within oneself, with all of its crude, transcendental reality, within the “world of the Divine Spirit” (Atman), is certainly extraordinary.
I am not the first one who has vividly experienced this event from the Mount of Skulls, nor will I be the last...
So, after the crucifixion, I saw myself lay down as a cadaver upon the “slime of the earth...”
Then, the Shakti potential, the divine spouse of Shiva, my perfect Mother Kundalini, prostrated before me with infinite humility; she was worshipping me...
“Oh, Mother of mine!” I exclaimed, “You are my Mother! I am the one who should kneel before you! It is unthinkable that you are kneeling before me! I do not deserve this! I am a vile slug from the mud of the earth, an unworthy sinner!”
However, it is evident that in such instants of this “cosmic drama,” I was representing the Christus, Vishnu, the Second Logos, the Son...
In the moments in which I write these paragraphs, the ineffable supplication of Dante Alighieri comes into my memory, which textually says:
Virgin Mother, Daughter of your Son, more humble and sublime than any creature, fixed goal decreed from all eternity, You are the one whom gave to human nature so much nobility that its Creator did not disdain His being made its creature.
That love whose warmth allowed this flower to bloom within the everlasting peace was love rekindled in your womb; for as above, you are the noonday torch of charity, and there below, on earth, among the mortals, you are a living spring of hope.
Lady, you are so high, you can intercede, that he who would have grace but does not seek your aid, may long to fly but has no wings.
Your loving-kindness does not only answer the one who asks, but it is often ready to answer freely long before the asking.
In you is compassion, in you is pity, in you is generosity, in you is every goodness found in any creature.
This man, who from the deepest hollow in the universe, up to this height, has seen the lives of spirits, one by one, now pleads with you, through grace, to grant him so much virtue that he may lift his vision higher still, may lift it toward the ultimate salvation.
And I, who never burned for my own vision more than I burn for his, do offer you all my prayers — and pray that they may not fall short, that, with your prayers, you may disperse all of the clouds of his morality so that the Highest Joy be his to see.
This, too, O Queen, who can do what you would, I ask of you: that after such a vision, his sentiments preserve their perseverance.
May your protection curb his mortal passions.
- The Divine Comedy, Paradise, Canto XXXIII, verse 1-37
Until now, we have Dante’s sublime supplication. Let us continue with the theme of this chapter by studying certain Christic verses...
Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, called Praetorium; and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe [first the Philosophical Stone is black, then it becomes white, and finally red].
And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it about his head [a traditional painful diadem on every Christified Astral body], and a reed in his right hand [like the rod of Aaron or the staff of the Patriarchs — a living symbol of the dorsal spine]: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
And after that they had mocked him [consequently, this is the path of sex], they took the robe off from him [because they, the tenebrous ones do not want the initiate to wear the scarlet robe of his own Innermost Logoi], and led him away to crucify him.
And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross [our guru always appears on the path in order to help us].
And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull [synonym of death],
They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink [it is evident that the path of the razor’s edge is very bitter].
And they crucified him [with the sexual cross, because the phallus inserted within the uterus forms such a very sacred sign], and parted his garments, casting lots [it is a clear allusion to the elimination of human possessions]: which was spoken by the prophet, they parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
And sitting down they watched him there;
And set up over his head his accusation written: INRI, Ignis Natura Renovatur Integra [fire renews nature incessantly].
Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left [The good thief is the secret, divine power that steals the sexual energy for the Christification. The adverse thief is the secret enemy who pillages the deposit of the Sexual Hydrogen Si-12 for evilness].
And they that passed by [the profane and profaners of evermore] reviled him, wagging their heads,
And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days [you that annihilate the Sinner Adam in order for the Celestial Adam to be born], save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross [because we, the tenebrous, do not like the intersection of the crossed wood that forms your two arms, like two prodigious hands that extend themselves to frighten away the sinister forces and the inferior powers].
Likewise also the chief priests [the authorities] mocking him, with the scribes [or intellectuals and Pharisees that always boast of being virtuous and saintly] and elders [the very respectable people in the world], said,
He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross [let him abandon the path of the razor’s edge and the Sahaja Maithuna], and we will believe him.
He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God [he christified himself; therefore, he made himself the Son of the Eternal One. We are children of the devil because we are the fruit of Fornication].
Now from the sixth hour [temptation] there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour [Ninth Sphere; when Kabbalistically adding 9 + 6, we have 15. This is the arcanum of Typhon Baphomet: The Devil. Such an esoteric value corresponds with the constellation of the whale, under whose cosmic influence the initiate unfolds until reaching resurrection. Let us remember the sign of Jonah].
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [Clearly, every initiate feels really abandoned before reaching resurrection].
Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias [Helias, Eliu, Elias, Helios — the Sun Christ, the Innermost Logos. He is our supreme aspiration].
And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed [symbol of the dorsal spine], and gave him to drink [as if saying, the work with the sexual spinal fires is more bitter than gall].
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost [thus, this is how we the initiates die within ourselves, with death on the cross. See my book entitled The Mystery of the Golden Blossom].
And, behold, the veil of the temple [the famous Veil of Isis, or sexual, Adamic veil, the product of original sin] was rent in twain from the top to the bottom [due to the supreme death of the ego]; and the earth did quake, and the rocks [of the path of the razor’s edge] rent. - St. Matthew 27:27-51
