The Bodhisattva (Tiphereth) vs. the Scribes and Pharisees of the Animal Mind
In the teachings of Gnosis we know that there are three types of mind.
The first is the sensual mind.
The second is the intermediate mind.
The third is the interior mind.
The first mind elaborates its concepts with its contents, by way of the data obtained with external sensorial perceptive senses. Therefore, it cannot know anything about That which is the Reality.
The second mind is the deposit of religious beliefs.
The third mind functions only with the data of the awakened Consciousness.
The leaven of the materialistic and incredulous Sadducees is in the first mind.
The leaven of the hypocritical Pharisees, who do not work on themselves, is in the second mind.
In the third mind is Sophia, Divine Wisdom, who is based on the direct and lively experience of That which is not of time.
Jesus, the great Kabir, warned us by saying, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
The materialistic doctrines of the Sadducees always rotate inside their vicious circle, which is their external sensorial perceptions. Therefore, they cannot know anything about That which is the Reality, about That which is beyond time.
Obviously, the Truth is beyond the body, affections and mind.
The fanatical Sadducees, materialists, and incredulous ones are born in time and they are lost in time. They do not know the Reality.
The hypocritical Pharisees believe, yet they do not know anything about That which is beyond time.
Only Pistis Sophia knows by direct mystical experience. However, she is related only with the interior mind.
Real experience of That which is the Truth is only possible with Pistis Sophia.
Nevertheless, the opening of the interior mind and the advent of Sophia is possible only by awakening the Consciousness.
Pistis Sophia is a living experience, manifested as the objective reasoning of the Being.
- Samael Aun Weor, The Pistis Sophia Unveiled
John, chapter 8:
1: Jesus (the Son of Man, Tiphereth & Chokmah united, our Internal Savior) went unto the mount of Olives (Sixth Dimension).
2: And early in the morning he came again into the temple (he returned into his own physical body), and all the (Initiates) people (who walk on the path) came unto him; and he sat down (on the Pineal Gland), and taught them (through the Cerebrospinal Nervous System).
3: And the Scribes (Intellectual Spiritualists of the Sensual Mind) and (Hypocritical, Sanctimonious) Pharisees (with their Fanatical Minds) brought unto him a woman (a Soul) taken in adultery (the Psyche of any Humanoid is adulterated by their Sensual and Sanctimonious Minds because of their fornication); and when they (in Meditation) had set her in the midst ,
4: They say unto him, Master, this woman (our Psyche) was taken (many times) in adultery, in the very act (because the consciousness always adulterates the Truth, since it is bottled up within these two perverted animal minds).
5: Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned (that we must utilize the Cubic Stone of Yesod so that we can eliminate such adultery from our animal psyche): but what sayest thou?
6: This they said, tempting him (so that they may justify themselves when providing evidence that his psyche was not free from adultery), that they might have to accuse him (since these animal minds satisfy themselves when seeing the splinter within the eye of the neighbor). But Jesus stooped down (and delve into his own Psyche), and with his finger (with precision and exactitude) wrote (examined his own Psyche) on the ground (physical body), as though he heard them not.
7: So when they (stubbornly with their animal minds) continued asking him, he lifted up himself (by reflecting within himself), and said unto them, He that is without sin (He that has not his psyche adulterated) among you, let him first cast a stone (in the water) at her (against the soul on Saturday).
8: And again he stooped down (delving within his own Psyche), and wrote (examined his own soul) on the ground (physical body).
9: And they which heard (comprehended) it, being convicted by their own (adulterous) conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last (on the Initiatic Path): and Jesus (the Internal Profound Savior) was left alone (in ecstasy), and the woman (the Soul) standing in the midst (with him in Meditation).
10: When Jesus had (Psychologically) lifted up himself (within the Initiate), and saw none but the woman (the soul free from ego), he said unto her, Woman, where are those (two animal minds) thine (internal) accusers? hath no man (manas) condemned thee?
11: She (the Psyche) said, No man (no mind accuses me now, because all the psychological aggregates of these two minds have been eliminated by thee) Lord (as you did with Mary Magdalene). And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I (the Cosmic Christ) condemn thee: (and since you were purified by the fire in the Cubic Stone of Yesod) go and sin no more.
12: Then spake Jesus again unto (the fanatic minds of) them (the hypocritical sanctimonious Pharisees), saying, I am the (solar) light (the Prana) of the world: he that followeth me (through the sexual transmutation) shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the (solar) light (the Prana) of life.
13: The (hypocritical) Pharisees (who talk of what they do not know) therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself (of your Internal God); thy record is not true (because we are blind, unconscious and we cannot prove that you say the truth).
14: Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself (of my Internal God), yet my record is true: for I (consciously) know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go (because you have your consciousness asleep).
15: Ye judge after the flesh (after your sensual subjective reasoning); I judge no man (instead I help to eliminate the ego of the one within whom I am incarnated).
16: And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father (my interior profound God, my Monad) that sent me (to incarnate).
17: It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men (or two minds, the Superior Manas or Heavenly Man and the Inferior Manas or terrestrial Man) is true.
18: I am (Tiphereth, the Son of Man, the Heavenly Man, the) one that bear witness of myself (of my Interior God), and the Father (my Interior God) that sent me beareth witness of me (because I am his Human Will Soul or Superior Manas, part of him).
19: Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father (who is your Internal God)? Jesus answered, Ye neither (consciously) know me (Tiphereth in the Sixth Dimension), nor my Father (Kether, my Internal God): if ye had known me (if you had incarnated me in the Venustic Initiation), ye should have known (incarnated) my Father (Internal God) also.
20: These words spake Jesus (the Internal Profound Savior) in the giving place (of the mind that gives and takes through the Cerebrospinal Nervous System), as he taught in the temple (Physical Body): and no man laid hands on him (no animal mind comprehend him); for his hour (of completely manifesting himself) was not yet come.
21: Then said Jesus (the human soul united to the Cosmic Christ) again unto them, I go my way (into the Sixth Dimension), and ye shall (physically) seek me, and shall die in your sins (you must psychologically die, because): whither I go, ye cannot come (with your consciousness asleep).
22: Then said the Jews (those who transmute the force of Judah, the Solar Energy), Will he kill himself (physically and not psychologically)? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
23: And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath (from the abyss, because still you have the ego alive); I am from above (from the heaven of Chokmah): ye are of this world (because you have the two animal minds very fat); I am not of this world (I am not slave of either mind).
24: I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins (in order to comprehend who is the Cosmic Christ): for if ye believe not that I (Cosmic Fire) am he (Tiphereth and Chokmah together), ye shall die in your sins (to prove it).
25: Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same (Cosmic Light) that I said unto you (through all of those Bodhisattvas within whom I had incarnated) from the beginning (of creation).
26: I have many things to say (teach) and to judge of you: but he (the Interior Monad) that sent me is true; and I speak to the world (to the minds) those things which I have heard of him (my Interior God)
27: They understood not that he spake to them of the (Interior) Father (the Ain Soph Aur).
28: Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man (through the Eight Venustic Initiations), then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father (my Interior God) hath taught me (in Samadhi while in Meditation), I speak these things.
29: And he that sent me (that is, my Internal God) is with me (through the Serpents of Fire and Serpents of Light): the Father hath not left me (within the Physical Body) alone; for I (his Christ Will) do always those things that please him.
30: As he spake these words, many believed (comprehended) him.
31: Then said Jesus to those Jews (those who transmute the force of Judah, the Solar Energy) which believed (comprehended) him, If ye continue in my word (and follow the Direct Path and incarnate the same Verb or Cosmic Christ, that is within me), then are ye my disciples (Bodhisattvas) indeed;
32: And ye shall know the truth (the Ain Soph Aur, the Father of all Lights), and the truth (your own Internal God) shall make you free (from the sins of your animal minds).
33: They answered him, We be Abraham's seed (we are souls of Brahma, the Universal Soul), and were never in bondage to any man (Mind or Manas): how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34: Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin (even unconsciously) is the servant of sin (is servant of his unconsciousness, infra-consciousness and subconsciousness).
35: And the servant (the consciousness bottled up within the ego) abideth not in the house (solar bodies) for ever: but the Son (through the Venustic Initiation) abideth ever.
36: If the Son (Chokmah Incarnated) therefore shall make you free (of your animal minds), ye shall be free indeed.
37: I know that ye are Abraham's seed (souls of Brahma, the Universal Spirit of Life); but ye seek to kill me (with your Lust), because my word (my Verb or Internal Christ) hath no place (hath not incarnated) in you.
38: I speak that which I have seen (united) with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39: They answered and said unto him, Abraham (Brahma, the Universal Spirit of Life) is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children (children of Brahma, the Universal Spirit of Life), ye would do the works of (Brahma, the Universal Spirit of Life, or) Abraham.
40: But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham (Brahma, the Universal Spirit of Life who emerged from the Ain Soph Aur).
41: Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication (we transmute the sexual libido); we have one Father, even (our Internal) God (the Holy Spirit).
42: Jesus said unto them, If (your Internal) God were your Father (of your consciousness, one hundred percent), ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from (the Living) God; neither came I of myself, but he (the Holy Spirit as a white dove) sent me (to incarnate in the Venustic Initiation).
43: Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear (comprehend) my word (my incarnated Verb).
44: Ye are of your father the devil (your lust, your animal desire), and the lusts (sexual passion or sexual desire of your animal minds, the den) of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning (when killing “Abel” the soul through fornication), and abode not in the (the Father, the Ain Soph Aur, the) truth, because there is no truth (Light) in him (but only within the Being). (Any fornicator cannot speak the truth) When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar (because the ego is the lie in itself, it is the contrary of the Truth-God), and the father of it (father of any psychological aggregate that originates a false, untruthful and hypocritical psyche). Any one who has the ego alive is a living expression of the lie.
45: And because I (the Cosmic Christ) tell (express) you the truth (the Being that is the Truth), ye believe (comprehend) me not.
46: Which of you (who is awakened) convinceth me of sin (of lying, fornication and adultery)? And if I say (teach and practice) the truth (by loving God through my Three Brains), why do ye not believe (comprehend) me?
47: He that is (practicing the Three Factors, the Three Priesthoods) of God (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) heareth God's words (of wisdom): ye therefore hear them not, because (you do not practice the Three Factors, the Three Priesthoods of God) ye are not of God.
48: Then answered the Jews (those who transmute the force of Judah, the Solar Energy), and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan (Black Magician), and hast a devil (Animal Mind)?
49: Jesus answered, I have not a devil (Animal Mind); but I honor my (Interior Profound) Father, and (not my Mind, yet) ye do (internally) dishonor me (through your egotistical animal mind).
50: And I seek not mine own glory (because the Cosmic Christ is the same incarnated glory): there is one that seeketh (the incarnation of it) and (will) judgeth (according to his own condition).
51: Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my word (if he incarnates the Verb), he shall never see death.
52: Then said the Jews (those who transmute the force of Judah, the Solar Energy) unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil (animal mind). Abraham is dead (Brahma dies in every Pralaya), and the prophets (the initiates die, they submerge themselves within the unknowable and die for the universe); and thou sayest, If a man keep my word (incarnate my word), he shall never taste of death.
53: Art thou greater than our father (Brahma) Abraham, which is dead (in each Pralaya and Mahapralaya)? and the prophets are dead (at the end of each Cosmic Day): whom makest thou thyself?
54: Jesus (Chokmah, the Incarnated Wisdom) answered, If I glorify myself (if my glory “HOD” shines by itself), my glory (Hod, the Solar Energy) is nothing: it is my Father that glorify me (within the light of Hod); of whom ye say, that he is your God (the Solar Absolute):
55: Yet ye have not known him (the Solar Absolute or Ain Soph Aur); but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you (who never experience the Truth): but I know him (through the Venustic Initiations), and keep his word (I have his Verb, his Son Chokmah who shines with all of his strength in Hod, his Glory, Incarnated).
56: Your father Abraham (Brahma) rejoiced to see my (Cosmic) day: and he saw it, and was glad.
57: Then said the Jews (those who transmute the force of Judah, the Solar Energy) unto him, Thou art not yet fifty (esoteric) years old, and hast thou seen Abraham (Brahma)?
58: Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham (Brahma) was, I am (the Ray of Okidanokh).
