This is a transcription of the audio lecture Defense for Spiritual Warfare 07 The Invocation of Solomon, Part 2 originally given live on Gnostic Radio, which you can download for free.
We are going to dive even deeper into this marvelous Invocation of Solomon, in order to understand better why we must recite it.
Remember that in different lectures, we stated that the Cosmic Christ is a multiple, perfect unity. It is not an individual, but an energy, a force, that expresses itself through many christified individuals, and these are precisely what the Invocation of Solomon summons when we recite it.
However, we have to explain it in different topics, especially for those of us who want to perform it, because in order for it to take effect — that is, in order for the Lord to assist us and help us through it — we have to follow the doctrine of chastity.
"For, "The glory of Satan is the shadow of Adonai": God in [Malkuth] the manifested world; "the throne of Satan is the footstool of Adonai" — that footstool being the whole Kosmos." - The Secret Doctrine
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwells all the fullness [Pleroma] of the Godhead bodily." – Colossians 2: 8, 9
"And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of [Gedulah] the Spirit and of power [Geburah]: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in [Geburah-El] the power of God.
"Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nothing:
"But we speak the wisdom [Chokmah] of God [Elohim] in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God [Elohim] ordained before the world unto our glory: which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of [a fornicator] man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
"But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man, save [Gedulah] the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God know no man, but the [Ruach Elohim] Spirit of God [that hovers upon the face of the waters].
"Now we [on the straight path] have received, not the spirit of the world [Malkuth], but [Ruach Chokmah-El] the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
"But the natural [that is to say, the fornicator] man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
"But he that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind [the Nous] of Christ." – 1 Corinthians 2: 1-16
So, it is written:
"יהוה Iod-Havah said unto Adonai, Sit thou at my right hand, Until I put thine enemies’ blood under your feet." - Psalm 110: 1
Thus, the angels of Iod-Havah are the ministers of Adonai. Every single angel is a bulb that shines with that electricity that in Greek is called Christ and that in Kabbalah is called יהוה Iod-Havah, which is precisely the divine name of the sephirah Chokmah in the world of Atziluth.
So let us continue the explanation, for you to understand the divine names of Atziluth, which are all the names of the divinity in Kabbalah.
The name יהוה Iod-Havah relates to Chokmah, which is the second sephirah in the first triangle of the Tree of Life, and which Christianity attributes to the Son, given that triangle in Christianity refers to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In Hinduism, they call it Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva. So, Vishnu (Chokmah, the Son) is related with what in Kabbalah we name Iod-Havah and what the bible translates as Jehovah. So, the bible states that the angels of Jehovah [Chokmah, which means “wisdom”] are the ministers of Adonai in the sephirah Malkuth.
“Bless יהוה Iod-Havah, ye his angels that excel in strength [Geburah], that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.” – Psalm 103: 20
“And the spirit of יהוה Iod-Havah shall rest upon him [Adonai], the spirit of wisdom [Chokmah] and understanding [Binah], the spirit of counsel and might [Geburah], the spirit of knowledge [Daath, Gnosis] and of the fear of יהוה Iod-Havah.” - Isaiah 11:2
We see here a priest who is in front of the Ark of the Covenant with the two cherubim, performing the Invocation of Solomon, thus, naming all of the angels or divine hierarchies related with the Tree of Life. So, this is telling us to comprehend that one needs to be a priest in order to perform it.
When we state that we need to be a priest, it means somebody who practices in the triangle of magic, priesthood, which is at the very bottom of the Tree of Life. It means somebody who is working with sexual alchemy in order for that invocation to take effect. If we are fornicating, if we are wasting the sexual energy, this invocation will not take effect, since it is an invocation that penetrates into the different parts of our inner Being. Therefore, it is obvious that if we recite it, it is because we are already performing the alchemical work with our Being. So, therefore, when we finish reciting that invocation, our Being will descend in order for us to receive his assistance, and he will assist us with whatever we are justly asking. This is something that is very important to comprehend, because there are many people who know this invocation by memory, but it doesn’t do anything for them.
When we look for esoteric books in bookstores or libraries, we find books by the magician/priest Eliphas Levi whostudied the Gnostic priesthood, and he explained the Invocation of Solomon in one of his books. He gave it there for everybody to perform. So everybody in esotericism knows about this invocation. We are not the first ones who are making a public explanation of this invocation. The main thing that Eliphas Levi explained is that one needs to be a magician, which means a priest, that is, a practitioner of esotericism, in order to comprehend, and in order for that invocation to take effect.
The graphic above shows us in Hebrew the Tree of Life with all the names of the Sephiroth, and with the names of the three souls described in Kabbalah, which we often address in our lectures: Nephesh, Ruach, and Neshamah.
Nephesh is related with the sephirah Yesod, which is the sexual energy. Nephesh is called the animal soul.
Ruach is related with the sephirah Gedulah, given the fact that Gedulah / Chesed is the Ruach Elohim or the Spirit of Elohim that assists us when we start doing this alchemical work. The Ruach Elohim (Gedulah, which is also called Chesed) is our Innermost, our Inner spirit, our own angel, that we have to be in communication with, in order for this invocation to take effect.
This is important to understand in order for us to comprehend the development of these souls in each one of us. Let us now quote the book of Proverbs:
“The fruit of the righteous is from the Tree of Life; and the one who takes from Nepheshoth is חכם chakam [wise].” – Proverbs 11: 30
Chakam derives from Chokmah, “wisdom.” Chakam חכם means “wise.” This proverb was written by Solomon. You know, “Solomon the Wise [chakam]”...
Three Wise Men
It is very important for us to comprehend who are the three wise men, or three kings. We talk about the three wise men in different lectures. The Master Samael Aun Weor explained that the three wise men represent the three steps of our work of alchemy. The sephirah Chokmah, as you see, is the second sephirah of the Tree of Life. In Hebrew, Chokmah means “wisdom,” while chakam means “wise.” Therefore, chakam addresses those magicians, priests, initiates, that are disciples of Chokmah, Iod-Havah, Vishnu, the cosmic Christ. The disciples of Chokmah are situated in the sephirah Tiphereth. Tiphereth is the righteous human soul, the chakam [wise] who takes from Nepheshoth - the sperm, the substance of Nephesh, the animal soul in Yesod. Tiphereth as an alchemist is always associated with Yesod.
When you do the invocation or any type of prayer, you have to understand that you, as a human soul (Tiphereth), are the one that is performing it. But in order for you to do it, you have to take the strength, the power, from Yesod. This is why Proverbs 11:30 reads: “and the one who takes from Nepheshoth is chakam.” So, in other words, the three wise men symbolize three alchemical steps in the life of any initiate, who is worshiping the Lord and taking from Nepheshoth, which is plural of Nephesh.
- Black: like lead or charcoal, still filled with impurity, but the soul is working on it, because this soul is a King (Hebrew: meleck).
- White: when the whiteness appears on the lead or charcoal: the fire is purging the impurities.
- Yellow: the most pure of the three kings. This is the yellow of spiritual gold, extracted from the lead.
Nephesh is a singular word. Nepheshoth is feminine plural. This is very important to comprehend. In Hebrew, the singular word Nephesh נפש is spelled Nun Pei Shin. The plural word Nepheshoth נפשות is spelled Nun Pei Shin Vav Tav.
The word Nepheshoth implies “many souls.” You might wonder: where are all of those souls? They are inside of us, and are the source from where the initiate — whether the black wise man, the white wise man, or the yellow wise man — take their strength in order to walk on the path. The three wise men take their strength from Yesod.
Moreover, in order to understand this better, we quote this other verse:
“Be fruitful and a Rabbi [Master].” – Genesis 1:28
In the bible this verse is commonly translated as “Be fruitful and multiply.” But the word רבו Rabbi (Resh Beth Vav) literally means “master.” So the translation, in alchemy, for those that know the mystery of Daath (the Tree of Knowledge) is “Be fruitful and be a rabbi [a master].” This is an alchemical statement. Why are we explaining this? Because when we teach sexual magic (transmutation of the sexual force), there are many people who always defend themselves with the statement, “God said, be fruitful and multiply,” which they interpret to mean they should have children. They, indeed, take the statement of Genesis very superficially, literally. We answer them saying that God does not need to give the commandment “be fruitful and have babies” because whether it is written or not, they do it anyhow, since animals like to multiply physically. The commandment is for those who want to return to Eden, to become real human beings. As Proverbs explains, “The fruit of the Tzadik [the one who follows the path of Kabbalah by walking the path of righteousness] is from the Tree of Life.” The Tree of Life is our spinal column. How are we going to harvest the fruits of the Tree of Life if we do not put in activity the האישים haishim, the energy related with our spinal column, which is the Tree of Life, in our physicality? How are we going to take the נפשות Nepheshoth from our sexual force in order to become wise: whether the black wise man, the white wise man, or the yellow wise man, alchemically speaking? This is only possible by knowing alchemy, the mystery of Daath.
When we talk about Alchemy, we explain that there are three types of mercury of the wise. The first mercury, or energy related with the sephirah Yesod, is called Brute Azoth, which relates specifically to the semen, whether in the feminine or masculine organism. In the masculine organism are sperms. If we clairvoyantly investigate any spermatozoid from the masculine sexual organs, we will find that such a minute organism is a Nephesh Chaiah, a living soul; likewise the ovum of the female is a Nephesh Chaiah, a living soul within the feminine organism. Thus, when a spermatozoid unites with an ovum, then we have chaiah, life, in the physical plane.
Through sexual alchemy, the couple does not fornicate (orgasm) but transmutes those energies, thus the male and female Nephesh Chaiah or living soul becomes Nepheshoth in abundance in our sexual energy. This is how we explain the verse that says “the one who [through sexual alchemy] takes from Nepheshoth is wise.” Yet the one who fornicates is a fool, even if he knows by memory the entire Kabbalah, the entire Zohar. Sadly, this is what is happening in this day and age. There are a lot of Kabbalists who know about Kabbalah, but are fornicators. They do not follow the doctrine of Daath, which is chastity, sexual alchemy, in order to become a Tzadik and to harvest the fruits of the Tree of Life, and thus become wise.
In order to understand this better, we have quoted the fifth day of Genesis. Why the fifth day? Because, if we count the Sephiroth from the bottom to the top, when we enter into the initiation the first day is related to the sephirah Malkuth, the second day is related to Yesod, the third is Hod, the fourth is Netzach, and the fifth is Tiphereth.
So, the souls who have reached the initiation of Tiphereth are called, in the world of Yetzirah, the Malachim. Malachim in Hebrew means “kings and queens.” In Hebrew, the Malachim are associated with angels. This is why in Hebrew language the three wise men are called the three Malachim, and in other languages the three kings or magi (priests, magicians). So when we kabbalistically address the three wise men, we are addressing the sephirah Tiphereth. In other words, we are addressing those initiates that have reached the level of mastery, the level of Malachim.
Above the Malachim or angels, there are many levels. These levels are explained in the world of Yetzirah. So, in the following graphics we show the fifth day of Genesis, The fifth day of Genesis states:
“And Elohim said, Let the [Brute Mercury] waters swarm with swarms of [soul of Mercury] Nephesh Chaiah, and let birds [angels or Fertilized Mercury] fly above the earth in the open firmament of the heavens.
“And Elohim created the great tanniyn [leviathans], and every [soul of Mercury] Nephesh Chaiah, that moves, wherewith the [Brute Mercury] waters swarmed, after their kind [sex], and every winged [fecundated Mercury or angel] bird after its kind [sex]: and Elohim saw that it was good.
“And Elohim blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and a Rabbi [Master], and fill the waters in the seas [of Yesod / Eden], and let birds [Bodhichitta] multiply on the earth. And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.” - Genesis 1:20-23
The word Nephesh Chaiah or living soul is associated here with the waters. As you see, we put a beautiful graphic depicting a swarm of fish. Using your imagination, just change the fish to sperms.
In the animal kingdom, it is known that when any male reaches the orgasm, he ejaculates approximately seven million sperms, or in other words, a swarm of Nephesh Chaiah. This Nephesh Chaiah is translated in the bible as “living souls.” But, what is a living soul in alchemy? A living soul in alchemy is what we call the soul of the mercury. In other words, the common and ordinary intellectual animal, when he performs the sexual act, ejaculates swarms of Nephesh Chaiah or living souls. And, if there is a chance, one of them will become a physical body, which will be a child, in the physical world. Nevertheless, the Gnostics, the alchemists, know how to take the soul of the mercury from the brutemercury. In other words, they know how to liberate the Chaiah, life, or fire, the האישים Haishim from the Nepheshoth, which are the sperm and the ovum; thus by liberating it, they enjoy the fruits of the Tree of Life that develop, that ripen in their spinal column. So this is what the book of Genesis states as “Be fruitful, and a Rabbi [Master],” alchemically speaking, to those that know the path of Self-realization.
So, Elohim said let the waters of Yesod swarm with swarms of Nephesh Chaiah, soul of the mercury, and let the birds - which in this case represent the fecundated mercury - fly above the earth, that is, above the swarm of Nephesh Chaiah in Yesod. This is how we place this other soul or fecundated mercury in paradise; this is, in the open firmament of the heavens, symbolized by that graphic of Dante Alighieri in paradise, where we see a swarm of angels that fly above the earth in the open firmament of the heavens, which is Ha-Schamayim, the “fiery heavenly water.” Remember that in Hebrew, “heavens” is Schamayim, and “the heavens” is written Ha-Schamayim or Raqiya Ha-Schamayim, ”firmament of the heavens”, as it is translated.
Ha-Schamayim השמים is the fiery heavenly water, and Ha-Maim המים is the waters. Ha-Schamayim השמים begins in the sephirah Tiphereth. Ha-Maim המים is in the sephirah Yesod.
In Kabbalah, in alchemy, we always point out that יהוה אלהים “Iod-Havah Elohim” become father and mother - מי me and מה ma - through המים “Ha-Maim” the creative waters of Yesod, which are control by the forces of Binah, the Holy Spirit.
מי עלה־שמים וירד מי אסף־רוח בחפניו מי צרר־מים בשמלה מי הקים כל־אפסי־ארץ מה־שמו ומה־שם־בנו כי תדע
“Who ascends up into heaven and descends. Who gathers the Spirit in his hands. Who gathers the waters as a gown. Who establishes all. At the end of the earth What is her name, and What’s son is the Name; you know that.” – Proverbs 30:4
In the bible, the word Ha-Maim המים “the waters” hides the two words, מי me and מה ma, which in Hebrew mean “who” and “what.” These are names of God, which we already addressed in other lectures.
So, “Who” in Hebrew is מי me, which is masculine. “What” is מה ma, which is feminine. So when Genesis says “let the waters” it is alchemically stating “let מי me and מה ma”, masculine and feminine, swarm with Nephesh Chaiah, living souls. Where? In the sephirah Yesod, the sexual organs. When through sexual alchemy the האישים Haishim or igneous particles represented in the letter shin are liberated from the נפשות Nepheshoth, then it is written “and let the angels fly above the earth in the open firmament of Ha-Schamayim השמים (the heavens),” the Akasha. The Sanskrit Akasha, the superior waters, are called Ha-Schamayim השמים, the heavens, in Hebrew.
As you can see, the word Ha-Maim המים the waters is also in Ha-Schamayim השמים with the only difference that השמים contains the letter ש shin. ש Shin or fire is inserted in the heavenly water in order to point out that the fire that we call האישים Haishim or igneous particles represented in the letter shin are liberated from the נפשות Nepheshoth that swarm in the waters of Yesod. Do you understand this? Because when we talk about Nephesh we are talking about the animal soul. And of course that animal soul is the substance of the נפשות Nepheshoth that Chokmah takes in order to make of us a wise man. So the Nephesh Chaiah, living soul, is a substance. It is an entity that all of us have inside.
Paracelsus, the great master of the Middle Ages, addresses the semen or Brute Mercury in Latin as Ens Seminis “the entity of semen,” and he addresses the soul of the mercury as Ens Virtutis “the virtuous entity,” which is in the substance, the semen, which all of us have, since we all physically multiply when we unite our feminine and masculine semen. Life exists on the earth when the two waters, feminine and masculine are joined.
So, through what we called Sexual Alchemy is how we raise the soul of the mercury, the Ens Virtutis, the fire; this is how the creative fire of “Who” ascends up into our “heaven,” the brain. This is why the word Ha-Schamayim השמים has the letter shin, which is the only spelling difference from Ha-Maim המים the waters below. This means that in order for the angel to exist within our “heavens,” that is, in order for the birds to fly above the earth in the open firmament of the heavens, the sexual fire - the letter ש shin - from the waters below, has to rise through our spinal column.
When we read in Genesis “And let birds [angels] fly above the earth in the open firmament of the heavens,” we should think that the angels will appear because Jehovah will create them by means of sexual magic. Yes, we have to alchemically understand that Jehovah Elohim is the sexual force. Thus, when we are liberating the soul of the mercury, then the angel appears step by step within our own particular heavens. This is a result of chastity.
So, we need to liberate the Soul of the Mercury, the Nephesh Chaiah, from our sexual waters, in order for it to rise and form Ha-Schamayim םהשמי which the Zohar addresses as the fifth precept.
“It is written: "Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creatures that have life" (Genesis 1:20). In these words are included three commands, having reference to the study of the secret doctrine, the multiplication of the human species and [sexual transmutation, symbolized as] circumcision on the eighth day after the birth of a male child. He who addicts and gives himself up to the study and acquisition of esoteric science becomes eventually united to his higher self and equal to angels. Thus it is said: “Bless Iod-Havah Oh ye his angels” (Psalm 103: 20), signifying students of the secret doctrine who are called his angels upon earth as intimated in: the words, "and fowl that may fly above the earth" (Genesis 1:20), also in (Isaiah 40: 31): "But they that wait upon Iod-Havah shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles" and so he able to go throughout the world as Masters and exponents of the truth that saves and purifies the souls and enlightens the minds of men. Thus the words, "fowl that may fly above the earth" refer to students of esoteric teaching called in scripture "waters." They are able to mount up to the great fountain of divine truth and partake of its living waters. That it might be so with him, David prayed: “Create in me a clean heart oh God and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51: 10), that is, incline and open my heart for the study of the mysteries and occult meanings of thy word, and renew me with a right spirit, or, in other words, let my higher and lower [waters] nature become purified and unified.” – Zohar, Bible Mysteries
So, in order to understand the fifth precept, we have to study what Moses taught us in the fifth day of Genesis, because the real angel, the real Malachim, the true king, appears inside of the alchemist when he reaches the sephirah Tiphereth. Thus, at that level, the alchemist is a “black king” or Malachim, a Sheol or Saul as it is translated in the first book of Samuel in the bible.
When we read the bible, we find three main kings of Israel: Saul, David, and Solomon. The yellow king is Solomon “the Wise.” David, the white king, is also called “the Wise,” as is Saul. So, Sheol / Saul is the first wise man. They are called wise because they are working with the sephirah Chokmah (“wisdom”) which is Iod-Havah, in other words Jehovah. Therefore, in order to alchemically work with those three kings, the three Malachim, or the three wise men, one needs to reach the sephirah Tiphereth. Nevertheless, this does not signify that in order to perform the Invocation of Solomon, we have to be at that level. No! Rather, what I am explaining to you is that those that will assist us when we recite the invocation are those that have reached that level, since those that have reached that level are masters, Malachim, angels; this is what we want you to understand.
In the engraving by Doré, Dante Alighieri is watching a swarm of angels in paradise. Those birds or angels fly in Akasha, the superior waters or the open firmament of heaven. But Nephesh Chaiah is here in the lower waters. This is why when we talk about Ha-Schamayim השמים, the heavens, we are pointing from Tiphereth, upwards, which is where the sixth dimension is.
Thus at the Nirvanic level of Tiphereth we find a lot of levels, or stages among those different beings that reach mastery and who are developing perfection in mastery through alchemy. This is why Genesis 1:21 states:
“And Elohim created the great tanniyn and every living creature that moves with which the waters swarmed after their kind and every winged bird [angel] after its kind and Elohim saw that it was good."
We have talked about the tanniyn (or Tannim) in other lectures, and we explained that Tannim means “crocodile.” From the word Tannim we have Levitanim or Leviathan. Remember that in Kabbalah Levi relates to the priesthood. So only a Levite (priest) could be a Tannim: a Levi-Tanim, a Leviathan. This is why the Zohar explains that when somebody reaches that level, he becomes “a crocodile” that swims in the lower waters and higher waters. This is what we have to understand: why Elohim created the great Tannim on the fifth day of Genesis. In other words, Elohim created the great alchemists, like Moses, Jesus, Mohammad, Krishna, etc., and every living creature that moves in the waters of Yesod in Eden, and every angel, “after his kind.” We already explained that “kind” in Hebrew is מינה minah, and the word minah also means sexuality or sex; so “after their kind” means after their sexuality. So, do you see how alchemy is hidden in Genesis? The bible says “after their kind” because the word minah also means “kind, genre.” Your genre or kind is a result of your sexual force, obviously. So, according to our sexual energy is how the angel emerges within, and how the Master emerges in heaven.
“And Elohim blessed them saying, Be fruitful and a Rabbi.”
You see? People that read this literally might think “all the fish in the ocean and the birds in heaven have to multiply. That is a commandment.” We ask ourselves, why is God going to give to fish and birds the commandment to be fruitful and multiply? The fish will do it instinctually without intellectually knowing his commandment. The birds will do this also. God is not addressing these types of animals, but what these animals symbolize spiritually. The birds symbolize the angels in heaven, and the fish symbolize the Tannim, those alchemists who are the crocodiles that are working with the living waters — strong beings, Samsons, that are in chastity. Moses wrote Genesis for those who know the mystery of Daath, Gnosis, Alchemy. Otherwise, it doesn't make any sense.
Genesis then states, “...and fill the waters in the seas and let the birds, archetypes or angels be multiplied on the earth.” Alchemically speaking, this is a process that we have to perform inside of ourselves.
“And there was an evening and there was a morning, a fifth day,” the initiation of Tiphereth, the fifth initiation of the Major Mysteries. If someone wants to experience the initiation of Tiphereth and see how the angels are developing above, and how those masters in this physical world develop wisdom, knowledge, like “crocodiles,” they have to understand that it is done through sexual alchemy, through different levels of transmutation. This is why angels are called Malachim in Kabbalah, given that they relate to the different levels of Tiphereth. So, in order for anyone to develop their own Ruach, Spirit, they have to do it through Tiphereth, the human soul; and they have to work with Nepheshoth in the waters of Yesod. Otherwise, they will not advance. Behold here the importance of chastity. Thus, remember, “be fruitful and a master.” The fruits of mastery are harvested in the sephirah Tiphereth; there you will collect and enjoy the fruits of the Tree of Life, which are spiritual gifts. Otherwise, you will become just like a parrot talking about Kabbalah, “blah blah blah, blah blah blah,” but you won’t experience what you learn and teach. Only those that are prophets, masters, alchemists, see and experience what they talk and preach. Through alchemy is how you enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Hierarchies in the World of Yetzirah
Now, let us talk about the world of formation, Yetzirah, and the different hierarchies of angels that develop in it and that are designated with Kabbalistic names. Remember, through alchemy is how we enter into the world of Yetzirah, world of formation, and through alchemy is how we raise through all of its levels, to finally reach its very top.
Listen, in order to start at the bottom of the world of Yetzirah, one needs to reach the level of the sephirah Tiphereth. So, when an alchemist reaches the level of Tiphereth, he then starts at the very bottom of Yetzirah. In esoteric Christianity, those at that level are called “children of fire,” and in Kabbalah are called Ishim. In other words, it is necessary to be baptized by fire in order to enter into the kingdom of heaven, to be born again in Yetzirah, as Ioannes stated when addressing Yeshua, the Master Jesus:
“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire.” - Matthew 3:11
Yeshua is the sephirah Chokmah. Yeshua guides you when you reach the level of Tiphereth; thus, through alchemy Yeshua makes of you in Yetzirah a child of fire. This is Yeshua's first step within you. The next rungs on Jacob’s ladder are called in esoteric Christianity:
These are the rungs that Esoteric Christianity utilizes to explain the hierarchy of angels or divine beings in the world of formation (Yetzirah).
Behold, in Geburah are the Powers; remember this, because in the beginning of the Invocation of Solomon, we say: “Powers of the kingdom. Be ye under my left foot and in my right hand.”
“For, "The glory of Satan is the shadow of Adonai": God in [Malkuth] the manifested world; "the throne of Satan is the footstool of Adonai" — that footstool being the whole [Micro] Kosmos.” - The Secret Doctrine
“Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord [Adonai] rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.” – Jude 1: 8-11
“Moreover to which of the angels [to Adonai indeed] said he [Iod-Havah] at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I put thine enemies’ blood under your feet? Are not all angels [archetypes] ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them [in Malkuth] who shall be heirs of [Yeshua] salvation?” - Hebrews 1: 13, 14
So, the Powers of the kingdom, as we see here, are at the bottom of the left column of the Tree of Life. These are the sexual powers of Geburah that descend into the sephirah Malkuth (physicality) as fire through the blood stream, because in Geburah we have fire.
In Kabbalah, the Dominions or the archetypes of the sephirah Chesed are the spirits of water. Remember that the sephirah Chesed / Gedulah is the Ruach Elohim that was hovering upon the face of the waters, in the beginning. Thus, Chesed is related to the waters. Fire is related to the sephirah Geburah. So if you wonder where the fire that gives the man an erection and humidity to the woman in the sexual act comes from, know that it comes from the sephirah Geburah. This is why in Kabbalah, sometimes when Kabbalists point at the sephirah Geburah, they say it is Lucifer, “the carrier of the light,” in Latin. Well, the carrier of the light is the fire. When you want light, you light the candle with fire and then you have light. That is Lucifer. Thus, the strength of the sephirah Geburah that descends through the blood stream is the power of the kingdom, Malkuth. This is why, in Kabbalah, we say that Samael, who is the Logos of the powers of Geburah, is the king of the ray of power.
Nevertheless, down here in Malkuth, those who utilize the power of Geburah in the wrong way are followers of Andrameleck. This is why Eliphas Levi when teaching about Klipoth places Andrameleck in Malkuth. Many ignoramuses who do not know about alchemy say that Andrameleck has to be in Geburah. No, because Andrameleck is a symbol of a Hasnamuss that has double polarity, and the Hasnamussen with double polarities are in Malkuth. They are not in Geburah.
Thus, in Malkuth, there are different types of people that utilize the power of Geburah in the wrong way. Fornicators are victims of the forces of Lucifer – the sexual force, in Malkuth. Therefore, if any fornicator says, “Powers of the Kingdom be ye under my left foot and in my right hand,” nothing will happen. How is it going to work, if they are not controlling the sexual fire, that is, they are not handling the powers of Lucifer?
“The awakening of the Kundalini and the dissolution of the “I,” precisely form the fundamental basis of all profound Realization of the Self…. The “I” is the demon that we carry within. Concerning this affirmation, we can say that the work of the dissolution of the “I” is really the work with the demon. This work is very difficult. When we [alchemists] work with the demon, tenebrous entities usually launch terrible attacks against us. This is really the Path of the Astute Man, the famous Fourth Path, the Tao Path.” - Samael Aun Weor
Yet, the fornicator ignoramuses say, “Oh! They are working with Satan, they are black magicians.”
“But these [ignoramuses] speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.” – Jude 1: 10-11
Ignoramuses do not know that the power of the devil is the sexual force. Listen, the alchemists that are controlling their own devils are those who are transmuting their sexual energy – the powers of Geburah. So, it is written:
“Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creatures that have life" (Genesis 1:20). In these words are included three commands, having reference to the study of the secret doctrine [bible], the multiplication of the human species, and [sexual transmutation, symbolized as] circumcision on the eighth day after the birth of a male child.” - Zohar
“And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Yeshua, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb. And when the days of her purification according to the Law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord: As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that opens the womb [in Tiphereth] shall be called holy to the Lord.” - Luke 2: 21-23
“Circumcision” refers to the methodical removal of Satan, which is rooted in animal lust; the priest / magician steals that power from the devil, and transmutes that sexual fire - the power of Geburah in Malkuth.
The invocation starts: “Powers of the Kingdom, be ye under my left foot and in my right hand,” that is to say, “Sit in my right hand, until I put thine enemies’ blood under your [left] foot.” “Under my left foot” because the alchemist is controlling the left column of the Tree of Life, where we find Geburah that drives its fire to Malkuth; “And in my right hand” because the right hand in the right column of the Tree of Life is controlled by Chesed, that is below יהוה in Chokmah, who becomes יהשוה Yeshua in Tiphereth. So, Chesed transmutes the fire of Yeshua / Chokmah. Chesed sublimates the Nephesh Chaiah, the living soul, the soul of the mercury, the shin, sexual fire of Geburah from Ha-Maim המים the waters of Yesod. This is the meaning of the very beginning of the Invocation of Solomon. Thus, the alchemists must be in contact with Chesed.
So, when priest and priestess perform sexual alchemy, they must be assisted by their own particular Innermost, Chesed, their Spirit, who is the true priest, who is the real magician within us.
Thus, by practicing sexual transmutation Chesed departs from Yesod, and from there as an alchemist Chesed continues ascending through the ladder of Jacob. In other words, the one that is reciting the Invocation of Solomon, the one who says: “Powers of the Kingdom be ye under my left foot and in my right hand” is Chesed, the priest, through the larynx of Tiphereth, his human soul within his physical body at any initiatic level.
So, only by seriously studying the four worlds of Kabbalah in the Tree of Life is it possible to understand the Invocation of Solomon.
Thus, when we say “Powers of the Kingdom,” do we understand what powers are we addressing? Listen, these are the powers that are in the physical world or physical body, whether in the woman or in the man. The powers of the kingdom are the sexual powers that come from Geburah. Thus, from Malkuth, you continue reciting and naming in English the rest of the Sephiroth of the Tree of Life that relate to the rest of the invocation:
“Glory and Eternity, take me by the two shoulders and direct me in the paths of victory! Mercy and Justice, be ye the equilibrium and splendor of my life! Intelligence and Wisdom, crown me! Spirits of Malkuth, lead me betwixt the two pillars upon which rests the whole edifice of the temple! Angels of Netzach and Hod, establish me upon the cubic stone of Yesod! Oh Gedulael! O Geburael! O Tiphereth! Binael, be thou my love! Ruach Chokmael, be thou my light! Be that which thou art and thou shalt be, O Ketheriel!”
Thus, as we already explained, by reciting in English and in Hebrew the names of the Sephiroth we approach all those levels of the invocation that allow your Innermost to enter into the different heavens of the Tree of Life. There, your Innermost invoke all of those beings, that we call angels (there are millions of them), who are ministers of the Lord and who work in Assiah, Yetzirah, Briah, and Atziluth in order to assist us in what we are doing.
The reciting of the priest and priestess continues:
“Ishim, assist me in the name of Shaddai.” Look at the graphic above. That is the solar force emerging from the waters. The Aishim or האישים Haishim, the solar igneous particles emerge from the waters of Yesod. So, those who live or reach that level, that is, those who control their sexual force in Malkuth, become Ishim, children of fire.
Now, who is Shaddai? The Hebrew Kabbalists have the tradition of placing the name Shaddai (sometimes only the letter Shin of the word Shaddai) on one of the posts of the entrance of the door of their home. They always reverently touch it. Shaddai is precisely the guardian of Daleth, the door. It is written in the bible:
“And Elohim spoke unto Moses, and said unto him, I am Iod-Havah: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name אל שדי, El-Shaddai, but by my name יהוה Iod-Havah was I not known to them.” – Exodus 6: 2, 3
Why was God known to the Patriarchs with the name אל שדי El-Shaddai, which literally means “Demon God”? It is because Shaddai שדי, which means “demon,” relates to the sexual force that every alchemist controls by means of willpower (Thelema). Moses represents the willpower that reaches Tiphereth from the waters of the Nile in Malkuth (Mizrahim). The Initiation of Tiphereth is the symbol of Moses’ life. He reaches Tiphereth, and therefore he has access to יהוה Iod-Havah, Chokmah – which is Christ, whose kingdom is in the heart, Tiphereth – in order to liberate the people of Israel – which are all of those souls or archetypes that need to be liberated with the power of the Cosmic Christ. The other prophets symbolize those steps in initiation that relate to the lower Sephiroth below Tiphereth; albeit Tiphereth as the human soul is the one who works with אל שדי El-Shaddai in Yesod in those lower initiations; but only Moses’ life symbolizes the Initiation of Tiphereth.
Behold, the name אל שדי El-Shaddai has exactly the same amount of letters of the name ישראל Israel, the difference is that the word El-Shaddai has the letter Daleth, while Israel has the letter Reish. These names indicate that “Tiphereth” and “Malkuth” have become one flesh through Yesod; this means absolute unity. But because of fornication, the powers of the Kingdom, the archetypes of Israel, fall under the devolving powers of Klipoth. In other words, fornicators change the letter Daleth of the word אחד echad, “unity,” into the letter Reish of the word אחר acher, “other.” It is written:
“Hear, O Israel, Iod-Havah our Elohim is - אחד Echad – “one” Iod-Havah” through the sexual act.” - Deuteronomy 6: 4
“Thou shall have no - אחר Acher – “other” Elohim before me.” – Deuteronomy 5: 7
This also means that the fornicators change the ד Daleth of חסד Chesed [favor, grace, charity, kindness, benevolence, graciousness, mercy, prayerful, benignity] for the ר Reish of חסר chacer [incomplete, lack, deficiency, failure, scantiness]. So, this is why we say, “Ishim, assist me in the name of שדי Shaddai.”
The reciting of the invocation continues:
“Cherubim, be my strength (און Aun) in the name of Adonai.”
In esoteric Christianity, the Cherubim are related to the sephirah Chokmah, but in Kabbalah the Cherubim are related with those angels that are guardians of Eden in the sephirah Yesod.
“So he drove out Adam; and placed Cherubim at the east of the Garden of עדן Eden [Yesod]; and a flaming sword turning every way to keep the way to the Tree of Life.” - Genesis 3: 24
The Cherubim are always associated with the creative fire of Shaddai (Lucifer) in Yesod (sex). This is why the priest and priestess say,
“Cherubim, be my strength (און Aun) in the name of Adonai.”
Adonai is the Lord of Eden, in the physical world.
“Be my און Aun (strength),” or “give me און Aun (virility),” in order to enter into Eden. How do we enter into Eden? With sexual strength we enter into Eden [עדן delight, pleasure, voluptuousness] by means of the sexual act. That is why the Master Samael Aun Weor said that the woman has the entrance into Eden, which is, indeed, her sexual organ, given that the man is the one who enters her. So, when he enters her, he and she enter into Eden, voluptuousness, bliss. Nevertheless, unfortunately, if they do not control their cherubim, their sexual force, they are ejected from Yesod; therefore, only those alchemists that know how to transmute the sexual energy remain in Eden; they return definitively into Eden in steps. Those alchemists are called “the strong ones,” the Cherubim. This is how Cherubim is sometimes translated, “the strong ones of Yesod.” That is why we see in the graphic below somebody that is transmuting the sexual energy through Pranayama, and is developing that Eden around and inside.
Hod: Beni Elohim
The reciting of the invocation continues:
“Beni Elohim, be my brethren in the name of the Son, and by the powers of Sabbaoth.”
The Beni Elohim relate to the sephirah Hod. Beni Elohim means “children of the Elohim.”
“Be my brethren in the name of the Son.” Who is the Son? The Son is the sephirah Chokmah, which reflects its light in the sephirah Hod. The world of Hod is the emotional world. In order to enter that world, we need to develop the solar astral body, the emotional body. In the sephirah Hod abide the children of God, the Beni Elohim, who control the astral light. So when we say, “Be my brethren,” we are stating “Assist me, help me with your superior emotional force,” in the name of Chokmah, the Son, the Christ that is יהוה Iod-Havah in my heart, his kingdom, and by the powers of Sabbaoth, the “warriors of Christ” that express themselves through Hod.
We see in the graphic a Beni Elohim. Why these angels are called Beni Elohim in Hod? Because, when Chesed, our inner Alchemist, by means of sexual transmutation let the sexual waters bring forth abundantly the astral essence, the Christ in substance, from our Nephesh Chaiah, our Nepheshoth or animal soul, contained within our sexual glands, then the astral body that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven appears, is created within us. This is how we become a child of our own particular individual God.
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God [Beni Elohim], even to them that have faith on - יהוה Iod-Havah - his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God [Chesed].” – John 1: 12, 13
The astral body is our Hod, “the astral mediator” that links our physical personality with the supreme emanation of our own particular solar Father. We join the army of the Beni Elohim, the children of the God, when we develop the astral body. This is how we can be in contact with all of those children, or Beni Elohim, that are in the astral world.
All of you have heard about “astral projection.” Listen, for the one who forms the astral body, conscious astral projection is something normal like breathing, eating, or walking, because he has an astral body. For this person, angels are not a myth or the outcome of the imagination of religious people in the world. We, Gnostics, know that angels exist because we can invoke them in the astral plane and talk with them, likewise those who have astral bodies do the same. But fornicators who are wasting their Nephesh Chaiah, their living soul, the Nepheshoth from their sexuality, they believe that angels are just a myth, a theory, or a belief. They say, “Angels are just a belief of stupid people who think they exist, but I have never seen them.” Listen, for the people who created the astral body, angels are not a myth, neither the fancy outcome of imagination, but a reality.
The reciting of the invocation of Solomon continues in the world of Netzach where we find the Elohim. Elohim is a Hebrew name for those initiates that control their minds. In order to reach such perfection so that they can help humanity, through their minds, they had to create the mental solar body.
When Chesed creates the mental solar body, internally Chesed is called a Buddha (“awakened”). Chesed is not the physical person, but the Innermost of that person who has reached the level of Buddha. If that initiate keeps meditating and controlling the mind to its perfection, she becomes an Elohim, a term used Kabbalistically, for someone who controls the mind to its perfection (Elohim has many other meanings, as well).
When the Wannabe Buddhas sit down to meditate, their mind controls them. For the Wannabe Buddhas who enter into the studies of Buddhist esotericism to reach an “empty mind,” a blank mind, in order to have a rapture and ecstasy, it is very difficult. However, the alchemist that has created the solar mind, the alchemist that controls the mind perfectly, for this person to enter into Samadhi, ecstasy, it is very easy. This is because the solar mind reflects the light of Christ, Chokmah.
So, internally speaking, an authentic Buddhist has the mental solar body created. This is why we find, behind the graphic of that monk, the Buddha image; that Buddha is his own particular individual Buddha that is controlling his mind.
This is why when the priest and priestess say:
“Elohim, do battle for me in the name of the Tetragrammaton.”
They are uttering the kabbalistic holy name of God, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, which in Greek is the Tetragrammaton.
Through the assistance of our Innermost is how we control the mind. This invocation is something that we have to memorize. When you are, for instance, meditating and your mind is bothering you very much with images or thoughts, you want to just concentrate on something and the mind keeps bugging you, what you have to do is concentrate on your own Being, on your own Buddha, your own Innermost, Chesed, and say, “Elohim, do battle for me in the name of the Tetragrammaton.” This is a very powerful mantra. Thus, if you repeat that consistently, then your mind will be controlled by your own Spirit. Usually, the mind controls us. We are always slaves of the mind.
This graphic relates to Tiphereth, which relates to the invocation that states:
“Malachim, protect me in the name of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei.”
These are the four letters of the holy name of God that kabbalistically is translated as Iod-Havah, and biblically as Jehovah.
The Malachim relate to the different levels of Tiphereth. They are individuals related to the superior mind, to what we call the Superior Manas or human soul. The beings at that level utilize the causal solar body. They control the causal forces of heaven, thanks to their inner Moses, their causal body. They protect anyone who invokes them in the name of Iod-Havah, Jehovah, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei.
The next level is the sephirah Geburah, which as we symbolically see in the graphic, is formed by two dragons that make a heart, because the sephiroth Geburah and Tiphereth are related to each other.
In the invocation we say,
“Seraphim [שרפים], cleanse my love in the name of אלה Eloah”
- or Elah, the goddess, the forces of the Divine Mother.
“And the people spoke against Elohim [Gibor], and against Moses, wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loathed this light bread. And [from Geburah] יהוה Iod-Havah sent [שרפים Seraphim] fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, we have sinned, for we have spoken against יהוה Iod-Havah, and against thee; pray unto יהוה Iod-Havah, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And יהוה Iod-Havah said unto Moses, Make thee a [שרף Seraph] fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looks upon it, shall live. And Moses made a [נחש נחשת] serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.” – Numbers 6: 5-9
Elah אלה or Eloah is the serpent of bronze that heal the Israelites in the wilderness.
Why “Seraphim, cleanse my love in the name of אלה Eloah”? Because “my love” is precisely in the heart, Tiphereth, and the fires of love emanate from Geburah, the spiritual soul. Remember that the power of Geburah is that impelling force that circulates the blood through the heart. There is a practice in meditation where the initiate concentrates on the palpitation of his or her heart and tries to feel those palpitations in different parts of their body. Those palpitations, coming from the heart, are the power of Geburah, through the blood. This is why when we talk about the “soulmates” we always point at the sephiroth Tiphereth, which is the masculine soul, and Geburah, the feminine soul. In the physical body, they are united in the blood. This is why when the male receives his erection in Yesod, the sexual organ, it is thanks to the flowing of his blood, and the woman's humidity is also thanks to the flowing of her blood, so, in the blood Geburah and Tiphereth are united.
Kabbalistically, there are two suns, one that shines in Tiphereth and another that shines in Geburah.
When we want to clean the heart of the impurities that we have in abundance, we do it in the name of the Seraph Elah אלה or Eloah – the divine fire of the seraphim that is the Divine Mother Kundalini. Elah אלה or Eloah ascends towards the heart, and from the heart she cleans all of our impurities. This is why in Taoism, we see Kwan Shi Yin, the Divine Mother, always standing on a dragon, meaning that she is controlling the fire of sexuality. This is why we see two dragons in the graphic, because in the sexual act, the woman is a dragon and the man is a dragon. Between them, they make fire. In Aztec mythology, they state that the ones who invented fire were a woman and a man. Those who have read this literally think that they were rubbing two sticks together, and thus made fire. But the meaning of that is the sexual act. When you transmute your sexual energy, that fire rises in the spinal column. This is how the man and the woman liberate their fire in the sexual act. This is why we stated that the powers of Geburah, the fire of the [שרפים Seraphim] the fiery serpents, descend through the sanguineous torrents of the heart, Tiphereth, into Yesod, the powers of the kingdom, Malkuth.
The priest, who is Chesed / Gedulah, continues the reciting of the invocation and says:
“Chasmalim, enlighten me with the powers of Elohim and Shechinah.”
Here again we name the Divine Mother Shechinah or Kwan Shi Yin, but related with the water.
Chesed or Gedulah is the true Adam, the Adam Ha Rishon that the bible in Genesis addresses as the Spirit of God that moved upon the face of the waters. The sephirah Chesed is the Ruach Elohim inside of us that is associated with the element water.
Many kabbalistic writings of esotericism point at the man and the woman as king and queen of the universe. A Gnostic ritual states:
“Behold, every man and every woman is a star, like mysterious lamps hanging from the Firmament. God is the flame that stirs in everything, the vivifying geometry of everything. This is why the number is holy, is infinite, is eternal. There, where He resides, there is no difference; diversity is unity.”
God is the Innermost, Chesed, the spirit inside of us. These is why when we are in meditation, and experience our own Chesed, our own spirit, we then discover that we, as Chesed, stand as a gigantic being on the planet earth. As Master Samael explains in one of his books:
“I cast myself into the infinite sidereal space while in complete Dionysian inebriation [Samadhi]. I joyfully moved away from the planet Earth... While submerged within the ocean of the Universal Spirit of Life, I did not want to return into this valley of bitterness. So I then visited many other planetary abodes... While smoothly placing myself upon a giant planet from the unalterable infinite, I exclaimed, “I dominate the whole of this,” as I unsheathed the flaming sword... “The Human Being is called to be the governor of the whole of creation,” answered a Hierophant who was at my side.” - The Three Mountains by Samael Aun Weor
If you read that literally, you might think that the intellectual animals in this physical world are the kings of the universe. No! We are talking about Chesed, the spirit, the true human being inside of us. When one reaches the first initiation of Major Mysteries, one then can experience how the Innermost is indeed a king of the universe. Chesed is the Being. He is not the ego; because as egos we are not kings but slaves of nature and the universe.
So, the Chasmalim are “the enlightened ones,” the Buddhas, those who are really fully awakened in the spirit; Beings that are very highly transcended. Yet, each of these Chasmalim is a vehicle of the light in different levels. It is not that there is only one being, as they think in Christianity, that Jesus of Nazareth is the only being that is connected with Christ. No! In the universe in the world of Yetzirah, there are millions and millions of them. Chasmalim are christified beings, and we address them through the invocation of Solomon. We must scale the ladder of Jacob which the bible talks about in order to reach the highest rung.
The next invocation addresses the אריאלים Arialim, the “the mighty lions and lionesses” of Binah. As you can see in the graphic, a monk is submerged into the waters and with his hands he is doing the snatching movements of the claws of a lion. An Arialim is a mighty lion related to Binah. We see in the graphic corpses that have been annihilated, disintegrated, by the power of Binah, the power of the waters. When we say “Aralim, act!” we have to concentrate on those lion-like beings, and our own Holy Spirit, which as Durga, act under the creative powers of the waters of Binah, which we have explained in many lectures.
Then the invocation continues into Chokmah, and says:
“Ophanim, revolve and shine.”
The word “אופנים Ophanim means “wheels.” This word refers to beings with auras that resemble wheels of light that revolve and shine within the aura of the Cosmic Solar Christ. Read the book of Ezekiel, the first chapter, where he describes the Ophanim that appear in his vision. Ignoramuses that know nothing of Alchemy and Kabbalah say, “The Ophanim that Ezekiel describes in his book are a system of wheels of a cosmic ship that came from another galaxy, from another solar system; and the Holy Creatures that appear are extraterrestrials that come to the Earth and who navigate these cosmic ships.” No! Sorry, Ezekiel is not describing a cosmic ship, but the Merkabah, the chariot throne with its attendant Cherubim; this is what is described in the opening chapters of the Book of Ezekiel the prophet.
The Ophanim are very close to יהוה Iod-Havah because they are related with Chokmah, the second sephirah, the Son, whose kingdom is in the heart, Tiphereth. Thus, the Ophanim and Chaioth-Ha-Kadosh are what Ezekiel as a Bodhisattva sees when he reaches the level of Tiphereth. The book of Ezekiel states:
“This [Ophanim] was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of יהוה Iod-Havah [Chokmah]. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spoke. And he said unto me, son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. And the spirit [of Chokmah] entered into me when he spoke unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spoke unto me. And he said unto me, son of man, [as I sent Moses] I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.” – Ezekiel 2: 1-3
Ezekiel is called “son of man.” Where else do we find the son of man?
“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the son of man am?” - Matthew 16
The bible talks in the gospels about the son of man, and people everywhere are waiting for “the coming of the son of man.”
“And then shall appear the sign of the son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” - Matthew 24
People read everything literally and say that someday the son of man will appear in the clouds. Well, esoterically, alchemically speaking, the son of man is Tiphereth, and relates to the human soul that has reached that level. The son of man and son of God become the same Being in Tiphereth. Everyone has the son of man within, but undeveloped.
The Ophanim are “the wheels” or Christified Beings whose auras resembles circles of light that descend from Chokmah to encircle the heads of the four Cherubim, the four solar bodies of Tiphereth (the Bodhisattva), namely, physical, astral, mental and causal bodies. This is why we see in the graphic, many wheels rotating around the Bodhisattva to indicate what Ezekiel saw in his experience. So when you say: “Ophanim, revolve and shine”, you have to imagine in your brain and spine those wheels or chakras of energy revolving and shining; concentrate on them in order for the Christic light to descend according to your level.
Finally, we reach the top of the Tree of Life in the world of Yetzirah, and pronounce:
“Chaioth Ha Kadosh Cry, Speak, Roar, Bellow! Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh! Shaddai, Adonai, Iod-Havah, Eheieh Asher Eheieh! Hallelu-Jah, Hallelu-Jah, Hallelu-Jah, Amen. Amen. Amen.”
“I saw אדני Adonai sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Joined, the שרפים Seraphim were standing above him, he had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
“And one cried unto another, and said: קדוש קדוש קדוש יהוה צבאות Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh Iod-Havah Sabbaoth: the whole earth is full of his glory.” – Isaiah 6: 1-3
In Hebrew, chaioth חיות means “animals,” plural. Chaiah חיה is singular for “animal” and also “life.” That is why in the book of Genesis says Nephesh Chaiah נפש חיה – which means “animal soul” or “living soul.” So when we say chaioth חיות we join “lives” and “creatures,” thus Nephesh Chaiah means “living creatures.” Ha ה means “the,” kadosh קדוש means “holy, sacred.” Thus, Chaioth Ha Kadosh means the holy or sacred animals.
How many are these holy animals? There are four:
First is the eagle that cries, which symbolizes the element air, Tiphereth. That is why you see in the graphic, the eagle on top of the three faces of Brahma, Kether. Why three faces? It is because Kether is the head of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit / Kether, Chokmah, Binah / Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva.
The second holy creature is the human being that speaks, which symbolizes the element water, Chesed.
The third holy creature is the lion that roars on the right top of the head of that symbol, which symbolizes the element fire, Geburah.
On the left top of the head of that symbol is the fourth holy creature, the bull that bellows, which symbolizes the element earth, Malkuth.
So, when we say, “Chaioth Ha Kadosh, cry, speak, roar, bellow,” we are addressing the forces of the four elements of nature that relate to the Holy Name of God, the Tetragrammaton, because Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei relate to the four elements, or the four creatures in the body of the sphinx of Egypt.
When we say, “Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh!” we are then addressing the three Sephiroth on top of the Tree of Life, because those three are the Holy Three-Unity that in that graphic are perfectly symbolized. If we use our concentration and our imagination, we will see all of these forces descending when we are reciting the invocation.
At the end, we say,
“Shaddai, Adonai, Iod-Havah, Eheieh Asher Eheieh! Hallelu-Jah, Hallelu-Jah, Hallelu-Jah, Amen. Amen. Amen.”
Eheieh Asher Eheieh means, “He is what He is.” These words are written in the book of Exodus.
“And God said unto Moses, Eheieh Asher Eheieh (I am what I am).” - Exodus 3:14
But when we utter Eheieh Asher Eheieh, we have to understand that we are saying, “He is what He is,” because Eheieh is Kether on the very top, yet we are on the very bottom. Thus, Kether has the right to say, “Eheieh Asher Eheieh.” But when we address him, we say, “He is what he is.” Yet, God says at the top of the Tree of Life, “I Am what I Am.”
Then we say “Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,” meaning “praise Jah.” Remember that Jah is an androgynous word. Therefore, people who believe that God is masculine are half-atheists, because God is masculine-feminine. God is Jah: Iod is masculine, Hei is feminine. When you pronounce the word Jah in Hallelujah, you are praising the Lord Jah, which is androgynous. And we say it three times, because Kether is Jah, Chokmah is Jah, and Binah is Jah, meaning male-female.
“This is the account of Adam’s generations. In the day that אלהים Elohim created Adam, in the likeness of אלהים [אל El-masculine and אלה Elah-feminine, plus ים im plural ending] Elohim made he them [those generations]; male and female created he them [those generations]; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they [those generations] were created.” – Genesis 5: 1-2
So, praise the Lord, “Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen, Amen, Amen.”
When you finish reciting the invocation, then you can take the Eucharist in your home, as follows: while concentrated in your inner Being, you say “My Father, my God, I beseech you, I ask you now, please, charge for me with solar Christic force this wine (non-alcoholic grape juice) that I am going to drink, and this piece of bread that I am going to eat, so that I can feed my soul with the atoms of all the beings who are the ministers of the Lord.” Thereafter, you bless the wine (non-alcoholic grape juice) and the bread in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and while eating and drinking the Eucharist pronounce mentally the mantra Krim (pronounced kreem, with the ee as in “tree”). That is the way for the Solar Christ to feed your soul with the Eucharist after the reciting of the invocation. This is precisely the way the Master Samael explains in his books for those people that have no opportunity to come into a Gnostic temple. The Eucharist has to be taken every time after we perform sexual alchemy, after the transmutation of the sexual energy, that is, when there is no fornication. Husband and wife recite the invocation together and thereafter the man blesses the bread and the wine and both kneel down and eat and drink the Eucharist together.
In the past, in Israel or in any place, when the Hebrews celebrated the Holy Shabbath, the Holy Saturday, every week, they always drank consecrated wine, blessed the meat, fish, and other elements with consecrated salt, and thereafter they reverently ate them during the celebration of the Shabbath. Thus, that was their way for them to receive the light of the Eucharist. This is why the Shabbath is Holy. This is one of the secrets of Shabbath.
Nevertheless, for us, the Gnostics, we also follow similar procedures through the Pancatattva Ritual, which we find in the book, The Mystery of The Golden Blossom by Samael Aun Weor. The Gnostics have upon their small altar a piece of fish, a piece of meat, a little cup filled with grape juice, and bread, and eat and drink after the transmutation of their sexual energy, which is the fifth element. Pancatattvameans “five tattvas.” The fifth is the sexual energy which we transmute first. Thereafter, the reciting of the Invocation of Solomon must be performed in order to charge the bread, the wine, the fish, and the meat, in order to finish with the Pancatattva Ritual. After the invocation, one eats the bread, the fish, and the meat, and drinks the wine (grape juice).
Thus, this is how the alchemist charges himself with the forces of the Tree of Life, and how he is assisted by the Lord in different steps. Listen to what I have said: “assisted by the Lord in different steps.” Who is the Lord? The Lord is Iod-Havah, Chokmah, the Cosmic Christ that descends according to our level. Do not think like some ignoramuses who call themselves Gnostics, who ignore that the Lord descends in different levels within anyone that is working faithfully with Alchemy. The Lord, the Christ, is energy, and is acting through anyone of us in different levels. If we are beginners, we are going to receive the force as a beginner. But as long as we march and walk on this path, and we become vehicles of the Lord, because we are transmuting the sexual energy. Remember the statement that we read in the beginning, when talking about the wise men.
“The fruit of the righteous is from the Tree of Life.”
Thus, through the Pancatattva Ritual is precisely how we eat the fruits of the Tree of Life; because in the fruits are the Christic energies of all the hierarchies named in the Invocation of Solomon. When we perform the invocation of Solomon, the Christic energy descends according to our level; again, such energies are the fruits of the Tree of Life: Christ.
“And the one who takes from Nepheshoth is wise.”
So if you are feeding yourself with Nepheshoth, that is, transmuting your Christic sexual energy, then you are a disciple of the Lord, you are following Chokmah. Yet, if you are a fornicator, if you are spilling the Nepheshoth, the living life of your sexual energy, it does not matter what type of invocation you perform, or what type of ritual you do. It will not call the superior beings, the forces of Christ, because Christ descends only in those that follow the path of chastity. That is why there are many that work and perform different rituals, mantras, rites, in many religions, but they do not follow chastity. They are just fornicators. In order to follow the Lord, you have to be in chastity. You have to transmute your sexual energy, the Nepheshoth, the Nephesh Chaiah in different levels.
Questions and Answers
Audience: Do we have to decorate our room with the three primary colors that are written in the book Dream Yoga? Does it relate to this?
Instructor: Yes, it does. You are asking about the three primary colors, which are blue, red, and yellow, which relate to the first triangle of the Tree of Life, the Triamatzikamno.The blue relates the Father (Kether), the yellow relates the Son (Chokmah), and the red relates the Holy Spirit (Binah). If we decorate our room with these three primary colors (it doesn't matter how, but the three primary colors must be in the room), the Christic forces will descend with more strength. Remember that colors are just different modifications of the light. The Lord is light. He said:
“I am the light of the world.”
When we are in chastity, as much as we practice and do the different rites, we are charging a room or altar with our magnetism. So it is good to have the three primary colors in our bedroom.
Audience: Are the four holy animals Chaioth Ha Kadosh related to the sphinx and the four elements, as in relation to the Pancatattva Ritual, to the elements that we can charge or bless in order to take advantage of the forces of the elements?
Instructor: Unquestionably, they are related. The eagle relates to the element air, the lion to the element fire, the bull to the element earth, and the human being to the element water. When a man and a woman perform the sexual act, when the man is connected to the woman, the fifth element which is called Akash relate to them. So through the sexual transmutation, we are transmuting the Akash – the fifth element. Thus, after sexual alchemy, when we eat from the other elements, we connect to Chaioth Ha Kadosh. Remember that it is written:
“And above the firmament that was over [the Chaioth] their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of Adam [Kadmon] above upon it. And I saw as the color of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of יהוה Iod-Havah. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spoke.” – Ezekiel 1: 26-28
This is why those painters who painted the four sacred animals of Ezekiel, always painted Adam Kadmon above the four holy creatures, because the Ancient of Days relates to the Akasha element. Thus, when we perform the Pancatattva Ritual, we have to understand that the four elements are related with the items that we put on the altar of our bedroom, in order to charge ourselves with the energies of the Lord – which is synthesized in the four elements that represent the four-lettered name of God, the Tetragrammaton. Remember that when we work with those elements, we work with the star of five points, which is the human being, because we are the outcome of Akash, the fifth element.
Audience: Since the world of Chokmah, which is the world of the Son, the Cosmic Christ, to whom all of our Beings are connected to in different levels; how do we discover in which level we or another person is?
Instructor: The only way to discover this is by entering into the world of Chokmah – the world of Christ, through meditation, and experience what the Master Samael explained as a Maha Samadhi – where you live the life of any of those beings that are connected to Chokmah. So, in the world of Chokmah, you find the Ishim, the cherubim, the seraphim, all of those beings that we name in the world of Yetzirah. All of them are connected with the Lord. Everyone administers the force of Chokmah according to his own level. Albeit, when we address Jesus of Nazareth, understand that he is a very high being that is beyond Yetzirah. He belongs to the Absolute. He is a very high being. John the Baptist is another Christ or another vehicle of the Lord, so understand that. This is why in Gnosticism, when we address Mohammed, Buddha, Jesus, John the Baptist, Abraham, Moses, and all those great masters that came onto the Earth in order to assist us, all of them are vehicles of Chokmah – of יהוה Iod-Havah in different levels, yet each one has a different hierarchy.How do we find out the level of the person we are invoking? Well, it is only by entering into that world. If this person says, “I am a vehicle of the Lord. I am an avatar,” then meditate, enter in the world of Chokmah, and discover if he indeed is. When we experience the life of a person in the world of Chokmah through a Maha Samadhi, then we really see if this person is a vehicle of the Lord; because everybody, as I said, is connected to that world. Thus, this is the only way to discover this. If he is a demon, he is also connected to that world, because Christ is the very source of any life. Thus, if somebody says “I am a great avatar, a great master,” and when through a Samadhi we enter into the world of Chokmah and investigate him, and if the energy of the Lord sends us to Klipoth (hell), then we will know that he is not what he preaches. In Klipoth, he will be just someone who is spilling the fire of the Lord. This is why John when speaking about the light of Chokmah, Christ, in the body of Jesus said,
“Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, and needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.” – John 2: 24, 25
The light of Chokmah knows in which level we are. Nevertheless, why do we need to investigate anybody? It is better for you to investigate yourself, in which level you are, and then you will, unfortunately, discover that you are in Klipoth.
Audience: Can the speaker reveal the mystery of Solomon the King dividing a child into two halves?
“Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. And this woman's child died in the night; because she overlaid it. And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.
“And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king.
“Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living.
“And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.
“Then spoke the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it.
“Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof.” – 1 Malachim 3: 16-27
Instructor: The mystery there is that the woman [Malkuth], who is really repentant and working on the path of Self-Realization of the being, protects her soul. When awakened, the Divine Mother Shechinah always protects her child, while the woman that is fornicating, that harlot, is not protecting anyone because Lilith, the Kundabuffer overlays the soul with death. The child Christ does not work with her. So the woman [Malkuth] that is a fornicator, a prostitute, does not care for the Christic mysteries. She is just going down. We can say that this is a symbol of the two ways of alchemy in Malkuth, in which the Divine Mother protects her soul, at any cost.
Audience: Is this invocation for the exclusive use of the Second Chamber?
Instructor: No. If that was the case, Samael Aun Weor would not have given public lectures on the invocation, nor would he have written about it in many of his books, such as, Manual of Practical Magic, Logos Mantra Theurgy, etc. Indeed, this is one of the main invocations that we perform in Second Chamber, but this does not mean that you cannot use it if you are not in Second Chamber. Through this invocation we connect to the different levels of our Being, to all the different parts of the Being that we have within. Read the book Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor in which we have included many books, where the master advised us all to recite and memorize not only this invocation, but many others. A true Gnostic knows this and other invocations by memory. There will come future days in which Gnostics will not be able to reunite in groups, not because they will not be allowed or because they do not want to, but because of the catastrophes, wars, that will eventually come; thus, how are we going to receive the strength of the Lord if we do not know how? If you think that it is only for the Second Chamber, then you really sentence the Lord to exclusivism (being available only to a few). That is not the case. The Master Samael wrote all these invocations and prayers so that all of us can use them in our private homes. Of course, in Second Chamber, it is different, but that is another level that we do not explain here. But that invocation and all the other conjurations can be used anywhere, anytime, for any serious practitioner of the doctrine of Samael Aun Weor. As I said, read his books, and you will learn from them, because he taught us this in them.
Audience: What happens when a sexual accident happens in the couple, meaning, they are trying to transmute and all of a sudden, the man, more commonly, ejaculates, that is, he loses through the orgasm the Christic force?
Instructor: He loses the Christic fire, in accordance with the magnitude of the fault. This is what master Samael says:
“When the alchemist commits the crime of spilling the “cup of Hermes” (I refer to the seminal spilling), he obviously loses Masonic degrees, because the fire of amorous enchantments descends one or more vertebrae in accordance with the magnitude of the fault. To recuperate the lost degrees is frightfully difficult. However, it is written that there is more happiness in the Cathedral of the Soul for a repented sinner than for a thousand righteous ones who have no need for repentance.” - The Three Mountains
Remember that the Lord is compassionate, because the Lord wants to assist us. If we had an accident, well what can we do? If we have an accident, we obviously need the help of the Lord, because we are down. “Help me, Lord, I couldn't control myself. Please feed my heart in order to fight again against this demon of lust that makes me fall during the practice of sexual alchemy, so that I can recuperate my strength.” Thus, the Lord will descend and give you strength according to your level. That is the answer: according to your level, in accordance with the magnitude of the fault. The Lord is compassionate and he knows our heart. Another answer will be in relation to the practices of the Second Chamber. But this is a public lecture.
Audience: Is the invocation only related to the world of Yetzirah?
Instructor: Well, really the invocation is not only related to the world of Yetzirah but to all the worlds of the Tree of Life. If you study the invocation, you will see how the invoker recites the different names of the world of Atziluth, namely, Iod-Havah, Eheieh Asher Eheieh, Sabbaoth, Adonai, Shaddai, etc. All of those names are related to the world of Atziluth. Yet, we will ask “But, what about the world of Briah?” The world of Briah is the world of creation, and of the archangels according to Christianity, the world of the Logos, or Logoi, the seven main forces, the powers that assist us - as we explained in the beginning of this lecture. So, when we are working on ourselves with sexual alchemy, we are working with the three primary forces through any of the seven rays, in the world of creation. But thereafter, we address the world of Yetzirah, the hierarchy, the world of formation, because in Yetzirah are the initiates that are working with and that are controlling that Logoic force, they assist anybody because they have the duty of assisting us, since they took the direct path. In other words, those hierarchies that we name in the world of Yetzirah, the world of formation, are those beings of the world of the direct path that are developing Christ inside, not only on this planet, but any planet of the solar system or galaxy. We should not fall into the mistake of thinking that only the people of the Earth are special. All this work that we are explaining here is for all planets, all worlds of every humanity, for every planet of the universe. That is the world of Yetzirah.
The other world is Assiah, the physical world or physical body, which with its fiery chakras also assists us in Malkuth, the world of the Ishim, the children of fire. For instance, as an alchemist, I am a child of fire because I am working on my chakras with my sexual fire, likewise, all of you that are working with the sexual energy, who are in chastity, you are also children of the fire, all of us, in different levels. So the Ishim, the children of fire, in the physical world, are at different levels according to the hierarchy of Yetzirah, or in accordance with the world of Briah, where we are just beginning to create the astral body, the mental body, or causal body, since, these are created by the hierarchies of the world of Briah: creation.
Audience: When is the best time for pronouncing this invocation; before the chemical copulation or after?
Instructor: The Master Samael Aun Weor explained in the book The Mystery of the Golden Blossom that Maithuna is first. It is written:
“Finally [after Maithuna], they bless the water contained in a clean crystal glass and drink it, giving thanks to the Divine Mother.
“Thus, by the intelligent enjoyment of the five “M’s” (Maithuna, Madya, Mamsa, Matsya, Mudra), that is: woman, wine, meat, fish and grains, we invoke the power (Shakti) of the elements, bringing it to the present within ourselves here and now.”
So we do it after, thus we are already charged after the sexual magic, so we can have the power to charge the other elements. The Akasha tattva that works in the copulation is the synthesis of all the elements. Thus, after Maithuna we have Christic force accumulated within us, so that empowers us to bless the other elements and to receive more strength by reciting the Invocation of Solomon. And, I repeat, we receive the strength according to our work. Another thing is in the Second Chamber. They get more help, but that is different.
Audience: I have the impression that Elohim are spirits, forces.
Instructor: Yes, Elohim means “gods and goddesses.” Yet, the Ruach Elohim is something different.
When you say Elohim, you are addressing the first triangle of the Tree of Life, as we explained in other lectures. El is Kether. Elah in Hebrew means also “these” which is Chokmah, the multiple perfect unity. You can also translate Elah as “goddess” but in this case it is “these,” plurality or multiple perfect unity. Binah is Elohim. So the word Elohim addresses Kether, Chokmah, and Binah; Father, Son and Holy Spirit; three forces in Elohim.
Now when we are addressing Ruach Elohim, we are addressing our own particular individual Innermost, which is an enfoldment of Binah. Chesed is the son of Binah, who is Father and Mother inside of us. So father and mother are Binah, the Holy Spirit. The Logoic force, but here within us, Ruach Elohim is our own Spirit. Thus, the Ruach Elohim, under the command of Jehovah Elohim (Binah) is the one that does all the work that we are explaining here, within any being. Each one of us has his own particular Ruach Elohim (Spirit). It is called Ruach Elohim because Chesed is the Ruach or Spirit emanated from the Elohim, the first triangle of the Tree of Life. So this is the difference.
When we say Ruach Elohim, we have to connect ourselves to our own particular Innermost. Yet, when we say Elohim we are addressing the Holy Trinity, which is above the Ruach Elohim (Chesed). And we also say Jehovah Elohim, because Binah is Jehovah Elohim. Yet, Chesed is Ruach Elohim. The same force in different levels.
Audience: Do we concentrate in our Innermost only in the Pancatattva Ritual and in the Invocation of Solomon or any time when we reunite and eat?
Instructor: That is a good question because indeed, we have to do it every day; every time we sit at the table to eat, we have to concentrate on our own particular Being. We have to learn how to feed our physical body, mind, soul, and spirit when we eat. This is explained in The Mystery of the Golden Blossom by Samael Aun Weor. Every time that you eat, when you are chewing and swallowing your food, you have to concentrate on your God and pronounce the mantra KRIM. Pronounced it like the “cream” you put in your food, or the “cream” you use to shave with. That is how you pronounce it. But it is written K R I M. So pronounce it mentally, because if you do it verbally, you will choke. So, do it mentally, and imagine that you are taking the Nephesh Chaiah, the living soul, from the food that you are eating, because the Nephesh Chaiah, the life, the soul life is everywhere, it is present in any organic food. So when you are eating, you are also performing alchemy. You see, alchemy is not just sexual alchemy. Alchemy is the chemical transformation of the food we eat and that our digestive system transform into energy within our body. When you are also in nature doing Pranayama, you are also doing alchemy, feeding yourself with the Prana of the elements. Especially when you eat.
This is why master Jesus of Nazareth instituted the Last Supper in the gospels, in order to teach us about the bread and wine, and about all the elements that we need for our nourishment. The Lord as light, as energy, as life, guides us. Remember that. Those that state that the Eucharist is not necessary are demons from Klipoth, because if you want to walk on the path of the Lord, which is the Solar Light, you need the assistance of the Lord. The Lord is the light of the world that multiplies the bread of life that feeds all animals, plants, and humans. That is why when we eat it the Christic force, we feed our Selves, our Beings. This is something very important to comprehend, because those that reject the Eucharist and say it this is not necessary, they are rejecting the Lord, the Christ, which is in the food, which is everywhere, and that we need in order to awaken. Remember, he said “I am the Light of the world.” That is the solar light which is in all the kingdoms of nature, even in hell. So, we need to feed ourselves with Christ in order to advance.
Audience: What about fast food, for instance McDonald’s.
Instructor: The spiritual sense of one's own dignity and integrity towards our physicality is lost when we eat impure, low quality, or fast food. That is why, in this day and age, people who have not yet lost their modesty want organic food. Organic food is rich with Christic substance that we call Shakti potential, Nephesh Chaiah in the food. In the McDonald’s type of food, there is no Shakti potential. You are just eating a piece of paper. It may be very tasty, but if you want to feed your soul and spirit, and pronounce KRIM, eat pure food, organic food, wihtout chemicals, modifications, or so-called “modern” treatments. We need food from nature, not laboratories and factories. If you pronounce the mantra when you eat McDonald’s fast food or any fast food, it does not work, you will not get any Christic force from it. That is truly “junk” food.
