The following text was utilized as the basis for discussion in a lecture of the free online course about the real meaning of the Book of Revelation.
"After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."
"After this (development of churches, chakras and plexuses by means of the ascension of the creative energy in each of the seven bodies) I (Tiphereth, took the Path of Renunciation and) looked (towards my Crown Chakra), and, behold, a door (in my Pineal Gland) was opened (and as a Human Soul I entered) in (the) heaven (of Atziluth): and the first voice (or the First Logos, the Father Kether) which I heard (with my Chakra Vishuddha) was as it were of (Aleph, or as the strength sound of the Akasic Wind blown through) a trumpet talking with me; which said, come up hither (since you, as a Human Soul, are already skilful in leaving and entering into your solar bodies through the Coronary Chakra), and I will show you (the necessary) things (of perfection) which must (need to) be (acquired) hereafter (your Second Birth)."
"And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne."
"And immediately I (entered into Samadhi and) was (as one) in the spirit (with Chesed, my Innermost): and, behold, (Chokmah came down from heaven on the wings of Binah, the white dove of the Holy Spirit and) a throne was set (within the womb of my Virgin Laodicea in the Church of Bethlehem) in heaven (or the coronary plexus on my head), and (a Child-God from) one (of the Seven Logoi) sat on the throne (of my Cerebrospinal Nervous System)."
"And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God."
"And (by conception of grace) he (Chokmah developed within Tiphereth and became the Son of Man) that sat (in my central nervous system) was to look upon (his solar fiery splendors) like jasper and a carnelian (or masculine and feminine red fiery spiritual auric lights that emerge from the cubic) stone (of Yesod): and there was a rainbow (or the aureole of Chokmah-Wisdom made of seven Logoic lights) round about the throne (of my central nervous system but) in sight like unto (the auric light of the stone of love) an emerald (from Venus).
"And round about the throne (or the central nervous system) were four and twenty seats (from the Four and Twentieth Mystery, the Zodiac of Chokmah, above and below, those four and twenty fires which work in Briah, they all are One with Kether which is the First Mystery, yet, in Daath within the Human Being, is Abba, the Father in the form of a dove): and upon the seats (of the Zodiac in Briah) I saw four and twenty elders (or four and twenty Dhyani-Buddhas or Logoi of Christ) sitting (with dominion as Malachim over the Zodiacal Universe), clothed in white raiment (or Dharmakaya Garments made with the immaculate strings of solar light from the Ain Soph Aur); and they had on their (Sahasrara Chakra of their) heads crowns (or incarnated Kether made) of gold (absolutely self-realized).
"And out of the throne (or central nervous system) proceeded (seven) lightnings (or Seven Horns) and (Seven Logoi or) thunderings and voices (of Wisdom-Chokmah): and there were seven lamps (or Seven Churches full) of fire burning before the throne (the central nervous system), which are the seven Spirits (or Seven Mighty Rays, Seven Akasic Breaths, Seven Truths and Seven Chakras) of God (within the same central nervous system)."
"And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes before and behind."
"And before the throne (the central nervous system) there was (from the Muladhara Chakra to the Sahasrara Chakra) a sea of glass (of transmuted Akashic Waters) like unto crystal: and (Krishna through the Brahmanadi which is) in the midst of the throne (or spinal medulla), and (who as fire is also) round about the throne (within different plexuses, was controlling the Akasa tattva from the Pineal Gland where Arjuna dressed with the Causal body as the Son of Man performs the will of God on the Earth), were (the other lower tattvas or four forces of the elements or) four living creatures (Chaioth ha Kadosh) full of eyes (or vortexes, operate) before and behind (in all dimensional directions)."
"And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second living creature like a calf, and the third living creature had a face as a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come."
"And the first living creature (the Spirit of the tattva Tejas within before and behind the Astral body) was like a lion (the Sulfur), and the second living creature (the Spirit of the tattva prithvi within before and behind the Physical Body) like a calf (the Salt), and the third living creature (the Spirit of the tattva Apas within before and behind the Vital Body) had a face as a man (the semiliquid semisolid Brute Mercury), and the fourth living creature (the Spirit of the tattva Vayu within before and behind the Mental body) was like a flying eagle (the Azoth).
"And the four living creatures (Chaioth ha Kadosh that work in the cross of the elements) had each of them six wings about him (because Tiphereth, the Son of Man, guided by the wings of “Aleph” the Three Logoic Spirits, works “in two male and female wings” through the Akasa tattva within the four Alchemical Elements in order to perform the Four and Twentieth Mystery, the Great Work of God: 4 x 6 = 24); and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night (because “Aleph” - the three Akasic Winds of God that circles around the four corners of the world - blows through the eyes of the Son of Man so that he may see with the eye of Dangma within all of the elements of all dimensions), saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty (Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh Adonai El Shaddai), which was (in Yesod), and is (in Daath), and is to come (alive within any bodhisattva)."
"And when those living creatures give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, the four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."
"And when those living creatures (or Alchemical Elements) give (the) glory (of Hod) and (the) honor (of Chesed) and thanksgiving (in Daath) to him (the Christ) that sat on the throne (the central nervous system), who (is the Ain Soph Aur that) lives for ever and ever, the four and twenty elders (or Dhyani-Buddhas of Chokmah that command the Cosmic Forces of the Zodiac) fall down (or soar down on the wings of “Aleph” to blow their emanations into the Sahasrara Chakra) before him (the immolated fire of God, the Lamb) that sat on the throne (the central nervous system), and worship (transmit onto) him (Kether) that lives for ever and ever, and cast (by blowing the power of) their crowns (or attributes of their particular Kether) before the throne (the Atom of Kether, the Father in the root of the nose), saying, You are worthy, O Lord (Kether), to receive (our) glory (of Hod) and (our) honor (in Gedulah) and (our) power (on Daath): for you have created (the Mercabah and) all (Solar) things (within every bodhisattva), and because of your will (Thelema) they are and were created (in the Forge of the Cyclops)."
