In this lecture, we will continue with what we discussed in the previous lecture, Region of Barbelo. Today, we will once again quote the Gnostic Bible, the Pistis Sophia, in which we find the description of the light that surrounded the Master Jesus, Master Aberamentho, who similar to Lord Krishna is transfigured in front of Arjuna and reveals his glorious divine form. It is quoted:
"You cannot see Me with your present eyes. Therefore I give to you divine eyes by which you can behold My mystic spledors." - Bhagavad-Gita
It is quoted:
“And (Bel Elija בל עליא (that (בל עליך Bel supreme) light-power came down (from Barbelo) over Jesus and surrounded him entirely, while he was seated removed from his disciples, and he had shone most exceedingly, and there was no measure for the light which was on him.” - Pistis Sophia
As it is written in the book of Job:
“And brightness like that of the noonday, shall arise to thee at evening: and when thou shalt think thyself consumed, thou shalt rise as (Lucifer) the day star.” - Job 11: 17 That verse, in latin, is written:
"Et quasi meridianus fulgor consurget tibi ad vesperam et cum te consumptum putaveris orieris ut Lucifer." - Bible, Latin Bulgate
Those quotes are addressing the Solar Logos, that is - as we explained in the previous lecture - Bel, the Sun. Here you see that we have also quoted in Latin the very beginning of the book of Genesis, that as you remember states, "In the Beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth." And then in the 3rd verse, "God said let there be light, and there was light." That phrase, in latin, is written:
"Dixitque Deus fiat lux et facta est lux." - - Bible, Latin Bulgate
Obviously we are addressing the light, and light in Latin is "Lux." From that word lux, comes the word Luci or Lucifer.
Lucifer, which is a Latin word that is much quoted in this day and age, by a variety of religious Christian organizations, is a word that is always associated with evil. But, the Pistis Sophia explains, just as the Bible explains, that Jesus was always shining when he was transfigured and that the light was the main phenomena of his transfiguration.
“Can you produce forth (Luciferum) the constellations (better said: solar bodies) each in its season? Or can you guide Arcturus with its sons?” - Job 38: 32 That verse, in latin, is written:
“Numquid producis Luciferum in tempore suo et vesperum super filios terrae consurgere facis” - Bible, Latin Bulgate
When the initiate (as Jesus) is transfigured in that way, the initiate (as Jesus) is bearing the light. The word ferry, ferrous in Latin, means to carry. So, when you say Luci-fer, or Luxi-ferum, you are saying "Carrier of the Light." That is why the book of Revelation states Master Jesus as saying, "I am the morning star" or the star of the dawning. That star of the dawning, or morning star, is Venus. We know that before the sun rises, Venus appears and likewise before the sun sets, Venus appears again. Moreover, according to Astrology, Venus is always associated with Lucifer. Unfortunately, ignorant people have confused, mixed, the word Lucifer with Satan. Satan, in Hebrew, means "the adversary." Satan is completely the opposite of Lucifer; they are associated with each other, but they are not the same. Where we quote the Pistis Sophia, it says very clearly that Jesus was entirely surrounded by the light; we will say, the light of Barbelo, or the light of the sun; the son of the sun. Jesus is producing that light, thus, Jesus “producis Luciferum,” because Jesus, himself, is producing, bearing “Luci” the light.
When we read in religious texts about the falling of Lucifer, or the falling of that light into matter - which is something that is written in numerous, varied allegorical ways - we see that those who ignore mythology and alchemy, ignore what the Pistis Sophia is asserting in regard to the descent of the light into matter, in other words, how עליא Elija (Helios, the Sun) “that light-power came down over Jesus and surrounded him entirely.”
“And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as (עליא Elija, the highest) the sun, and his raiment (the Egyptian Sahu) was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias (the solar superior manas and the solar inferior manas) talking with him (the astral solar body).” - Matthew 17: 2, 3
We are familiar with the story that tells how Lucifer was the most beautiful Archangel that was created, and that (because the initiate took the straight path) he was ejected from Heaven and came down to the Earth (the stable of Bethlehem). Well, we explained a little bit of that light in the previous lecture and today we are addressing why Master Jesus said, in the book of Revelation, "I am the morning star;" Venus, which is associated with Lucifer. People do not like this association, but it is what Jesus said. He said: "I am the light of the world." The light of the world is the Solar light. There is no escape from pointing towards the light, and it's association with Lucifer.
“How art thou fallen from (Ouranos) heaven, (הילל בן־שחר Hillel ben Shachar) O praised one, son of the morning (star)! how art thou cut down to the earth, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into (Ouranos) heaven, I will exalt my throne (Yesod) above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like (עליא Elija) the most High. Yet (at the beginning) thou shalt be brought down to (king) שאול Saul (in Tiphereth, and thereafter) to (Klipoth) the uttermost parts of that בור brutish (the uttermost parts are the animals of the stable of Bethlehem).” - Isaiah 14: 12-15
Going back to the quote we had already spoken about, "Dixitque Deus fiat lux et facta est lux" which is Latin for, "God said let there be light, and there was light." In order to better comprehend this light, we have to go into the gospel of Matthew: If you remember how the light came from Heaven into Jesus, when he was baptized in the river of Jordan. It is written:
“And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, Ouranos were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God (Khristus-Lucifer) descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from Ouranos, saying, This is my beloved Son (Khristus-Lucifer), in whom I am well pleased." - Matthew 3: 16, 17
“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of Ouranos is at hand.” - Matthew 4: 17
Why is it that we are writing Ouranos instead of Heaven? Because, this is how it is written in Greek; remember, the gospels were written in Greek. Ouranos is the word for Heaven in Greek. So, Ouranos is the name given to the first planet discovered by telescope, which is the planet after Saturn. In the Greek language, you pronounce the name of that planet, "Ou-Ra-Nos," and this is how we will pronounce it, in order to avoid the vulgar jokes about the name of this planet that you find everywhere in this day and age.
We quoted from some verses of the Bible (and of course there are many more) which speak about this word Ouranos, which in Latin is called “Caelum” (sky or Heaven in English).
Another quotation states:
“And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, Blessed are the beggars in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of Ouranos (ֿοὐρανὸς)."
“Blessed are the beggars in spirit” is commonly translated as, blessed are the poor in Spirit, but the Greek word (πτωχός ptōchos) could be beggar, poor, needy, and many other words. Thus, the real translation should be beggars, because this is what we are; we are begging for light, for Christ-light. It comes into my mind, Homer, the poet of Greece that says in his Odyssey book 11, "Better a beggar on earth than a prince in Hades,” in other words: It is better to be a beggar in the Kingdom of the Light, than a king in the kingdom of darkness. So, therefore, Jesus is always speaking about Ouranos. He says:
“For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of Ouranos.”
“But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by Ouranos; for it is God's (θρόνος) thronos.”
“Throne” is the angelical hierarchy of Binah, whose kingdom is in Yesod, the sexual organs. Ouranos controls the sexual endocrine glands.
“And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham (‘s genitalia) his master, and sware to him concerning that matter.” - Genesis 24: 9
“You have heard that it has been said, you shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that you may be the children of your Father which is in Ouranos: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain (aqua-aerius) on the just and on the unjust. For if you love them which love you, what reward have you? Do not even the publicans the same? And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more than others? Do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Ouranos is perfect.” - Mathew 5: 2, 3, 20, 34, 43-48
Obviously, if you do not know Greek mythology, you do not know why Jesus, or the writers of the Gospels, are always quoting Ouranos; Ouranos is Heaven. People always say that Heaven is up there, in the sky... but, according to mythology, Ouranos was the first begotten of Chaos. What is Chaos? Chaos is that word that describes all of the elements that are needed for creation, but which are found in disorder. Those elements become ordered when the first being is created, which, according to Greek mythology, is Ouranos.
That is why it is said that from Chaos came the stars, the Heavens. And, it's true; every single star, every sun, every planet comes from Chaos. We will state that Chaos becomes Ouranos. Ouranos has its origin in Chaos. That is why we always associate Chaos with Ouranos: The manifested Chaos? Ouranos. The unimanifested Ouranos? Chaos. They are the same essence, the same force.
In Ouranos we have our own particular, individual star. In Kabbalah we state that, that particular, individual star is called the Ain Soph, and this is what we have to comprehend and understand as to why the Bible talks about that, because, literally, Christianity began spreading in Greece. From there, it went to Italy, then the rest of Europe and finally, the whole world. Remember, the Jews rejected the Lord, the incarnation of Barbelo, the Son of Bel, the incarnation of Bel; the Solar light. The intention of Master Aberamentho was to make this wisdom, that we are giving here, universal - not merely for one race. When knowledge remains only in one race, that is called a Lunar race, a Lunar religion. But, the doctrine of Master Jesus was not Lunar, but Solar; he wanted to give everything to the whole world. This is precisely what we have today; but, unfortunately this knowledge, these teachings are without explanation because everything is hidden behind symbols. This is what we want to explain here, when we talk about Ouranos, the first begotten of Chaos.
Remember that the book of Revelation states that Jesus Christ said:
“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Yes, “Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” - Revelation 1: 8, 5
Death, cosmologically speaking, is the Ain Soph. It is in the Ain Soph where we find the cosmic night, where everything is in repose, everything is dead. But, when “Ath” the Logos, the first light emanates from the Chaos, Ouranos (Ha-Shamayim, the heavens) appears. That is why Ouranos is symbolized in Greek mythology as the Zodiacal belt. Remember that we are explaining here the meaning of the symbol of Ouranos; where our Heavenly Father is. This is why it is written:
“I have said, You are Elohim; and all of you are children of (Elija עליא) the Most High.” - Psalm 82: 6. In order to understand this Psalm, you must go deep within yourself.
Talking about this, it comes to my mind an experience that I had, when meditating on Ouranos: I understood that Ouranos, the first begotten of the Ain Soph, was in the Ain Soph. So, I went there, the Ain Soph, in a Samadhi during meditation and I experienced that with my consciousness, my soul. I entered into the dark space, I saw no light there; it was completely dark. I have had many other experiences related with the Ain Soph, but this one was very singular, very particular and very important for you to know, because when I was there, a Master that abides within the Ain Soph came out of the Ain Soph. What is the Ain Soph? It is the Limitless Space; it is nothingness. From that nothingness came the Master. How was it that that Master could penetrate outwardly from that nothingness? He was able to do so because he possesses the four main alchemical atoms that give him the power to do that. Those four atoms are that which we have to build, through Alchemy. Obviously, that Master had already accomplished that, and he came out and instantaneously materialized in front of me, with the figure of a Genie; that Master can take any form that he wishes, but here, he took the form of a Genie. I looked at him, and he said nothing. But, then he went to his right, and materialized from the nothingness, a table. And then from the nothingness he materialized a piece of paper. And finally, from the nothingness he materialized a pencil; obviously, I thought that he was going to write something, he didn't say a word. He took the pencil and wrote; “Be careful with mythomania.” The pencil disappeared, the paper disappeared, the table disappeared and he disappeared, and I was again in the darkness. Then I returned to my body. I realized that, that was a very important lesson; be careful with mythomania.
What is mythomania? It is a tendency of the "Manas," a mental disorder; from Greek mythos "speech, thought, story, myth, anything delivered by word of mouth," of unknown origin. Manas is the mind, that is used to interpreting things in accordance with its own level. However, sometimes you have to be open, mentally speaking, in order to understand that many symbols have their own interpretations. There are seven types, seven levels of interpretation. Yet, the mind, the manas, has the tendency to always boast of being "the last word." I understood that this experience was warning me about my own mind and about the mind of others, because I as others have a mystic mind, of course, and that I have to be careful with my mystic mind and thereafter the mystic mind of others.
Our lectures are not the last word; they are the outcome of the comprehension of our experiences, at our own level. There are other people that explain the doctrine of Gnosis, according to their own level; but theirs is not the last word either. The Word את “Ath” is the Logos “את השמים ואת הארץ” in the heavens and in the earth.
Understanding that, we have to always keep the doors open for the higher beings, the higher individuals, the Elohim. In the cosmos, there are different levels. As the “את-Ath” of Jesus said in the Gospel of John:
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God (Elohim), believe also in me (את-Ath). In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? (The “את-Ath” of ) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” - John 14: 1-6
In the kingdom of my God, the Solar Absolute, there are many mansions (or temples in the core of every star), within which you can abide. In every temple, every mansion, there is always a being, the Logos that is the boss, in the same way that any house you go into has a boss, whose rules, laws you have to obey, to be respectful of. In the kingdom of the light there are many mansions, many qualities of lights; and every light has its own wisdom. But, as we have explained about Jesus (Aberamentho), his light embraces many infinites. We detailed this in the lecture “The Region of Barbelo.”
Let us continue in our explanation of this mysterious Ouranos. This is how you write it in Greek; Οὐρανός. Here in this graphic we see the sign of Aquarius, which is ruled by the two planets Saturn (Binah) and Ouranos (Chokmah). Master Samael always states that Aquarius is ruled by Ouranos and that Ouranos controls the endocrine sexual glands.
It takes 84 years for Ouranos to rotate around the Sun; 42 of those years with the feminine pole toward the sun, and the other 42 with the masculine. That is why on the Earth, as we receive the influence of Ouranos, there are cycles where for 42 years the woman dominates, and then for 42 years, the man. That is the cycle of Ouranos that relates with the sexual glands.
Here we see the Astrological symbol of Ouranos. In the middle is the cross. The symbol of the cross is there because Ouranos controls the sexual glands. On each side of the horizontal line, we see two half-circles, which represent the ovaries; the horizontal line itself is the uterus. The horizontal line is crossed by the phallus, the vertical line, which is the masculine organ. At the bottom of that vertical line is a circle, which represents the testicles. That is the sign of Ouranos, alchemically speaking; the crossing of the two forces, feminine and masculine, in alchemy. That is why, when we go to the origin of Ouranos, we understand sexual alchemy. This is why, in this day and age, we are openly talking about sexual alchemy, sexual chastity. The water that comes from Heaven is the superior waters of Aqua-Arius; the rain. As I said, pay attention, because as we quoted before, "Ouranos, that is in Heaven, sends the rain." The rain is that creative sexual energy.
It is necessary to reiterate that, when talking about sexual alchemy, we are referring to the sexual connection between a man and a woman; in order for Ouranos to develop, to emerge from the Chaos, we need both poles of the sexual energy. The Chaos, at the microcosmic level, is our sexual organs because in our sexual organs, everything is in chaos; from that Chaos, life can emerge, depending upon how we perform the sexual act. If you are the average person, and perform the sexual act between a male and female, life will be the outcome; any other way, and life cannot come. You need two powers; the sperm and the ovum. There is no escape from that.
Let us now dive into בראשית Barashyth, as it is written in Hebrew; the first word of the Bible. When we talk about that word, which is an anagram, we understand that it has many explanations because it relates with the Chaos. From בראשית Barashyth emerges את-Ath, the Logos and Ouranos. It is written, בראשית ברא אלהים " Barashyth Bara Elohim:" the Chaos created the Elohim. It should be translated as the Elohim because Elohim is plural, it is not God, but Gods and Goddesses. After that, it is written: “Barashyth Bara Elohim Ath - בראשית ברא אלהים את ". “Ath-את” is a word that we always mention; “את-Ath”, spelled Aleph-Tav, which are the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Together, Aleph-Tav, Ath form a word that means the Logos, the Word. In Greek mythology, the Logos is represented by Eros, because Eros enters into action when the man penetrates the woman; Eros is “Esh-אש,” the fire, there in בראשית Barashyth, the Chaos, followed by order, if you know sexual alchemy. Eros, “Esh-אש,” the fire, unites the things, the ית Ith of בראשית Barashyth; how do we call Eros in Latin? We call it Lucifer, because the fire carries the light. This is why the word "erotic" comes from Eros.
So, when everything is in Chaos and you are kissing, embracing with your partner, you are in בראשית Barashyth, then, all of a sudden Eros, “Esh-אש,” the fire, will say, "Ok, I am ready." Then comes ית IT, when the man penetrates the woman. Thus, after Eros, the “Esh-אש,”of בראשית Barashyth, the Elohim is created. Elohim (God) is the first emanation of the Chaos. But, remember, it is written that בראשית ברא אלהים " Barashyth Bara Elohim." Chaos created אלהים Elohim, plural.
So, the first Elohim is Ath, the Logos, Eros, which is the manifested Lucifer, in Latin. After that, it is written: Berashith Bera Elohim Ath Ha-Schamayim. Ha-Schamayim; the Heavens. If you read a Greek Bible, that word, Ha-Schamayim, Heaven is written as Ouranos. The second Elohim created is Ouranos because after “Ath-,את” Eros was Ouranos which is “השמים-HaShamayim” in Hebrew. The next part, "And the Earth..." Who is the Earth, in Greek? Gaia, Gaea.
In Greek mythology, the trinity that emerged from the Chaos is Ouranos Eros and Gaia. The beauty of that is to see that replicated in your body. The organ penetrated into the woman, which is the Chaos, thanks to Eros. Without Eros, there cannot be a connection; the fire, the light of Eros has to be there. From there, as a result of the transmutation of the sexual energy, the energy rises up the spinal medulla; the sexual energy is governed by Ouranos, which is Chaos, which is בראשית Barashyth.
Ouranos is represented by the sign of the infinite. What is the sign of the infinite? It is hidden within the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, Aleph. The shape of the letter Aleph contains two Iods, and a Vav; the first Iod is in the upper waters and the second Iod is in the lower waters. Those two waters are the brain and the sex, united by the spinal medulla (the Vav). The Kabbalastic addition of those elements of the letter Aleph is 26; Iod (10) + Iod (10) + Vav (6) = 26. Then, 2 + 6 = 8, which is the sign of the infinite.
Where do you have that sign of the infinite within you? In your spinal column. You want Ouranos to be born in you? Well, transmute Eros; transmute your erotic energy, and the light will come and Ouranos will appear. That is the sign of the infinite.
What is an infinite? All of the stars of the sky. And what is the name of all of those stars in Greek? Ouranos, Heaven. Here, we understand the alchemical meaning of this. And, you might ask, what is Gaia? It is your physical body. That is why it is stated of these three aspects of Greek mythology that Ouranos was married with Gaia, your physicality. That light of Ouranos as Chaos emerges within you, and from Gaia, Gaea, your physicality you start creating what it is that we need to create. That is why we put the symbol of Ouranos at the very bottom of this graphic of the Tree of Life.
The planet Ouranos, according to the ten Sephiroth, rules the sephirah Chokmah, which is related with Christ. In other words, the sephirah Chokmah, which is the second sephirah of the ten Sephiroth, is an unfoldment of Ouranos, of Heaven. That is why Jesus says: pray to your Father, who is in Ouranos - which is in the Ain Soph; there is where your Father is.
It is from the Ain Soph that came that Genie from my experience, a very high being. But, in the Ain Soph, there are two types of atoms; those atoms that contain within them the four atoms plus the Trinity, and those atoms that do not possess the four atoms. Those four atoms are; the atom that represents the Solar physical body (body of liberation); the atom that represents the Solar Astral body; the atom that represents the Solar Mental body; the atom that represents the Solar Causal body, the body of willpower. If we were to speak about these atoms in the alchemical, chemical sense, we would label them; hydrogen, carbon, oxygen and nitrogen.
If an atomic star possesses those atoms, it materializes instantaneously. Those atoms are Gods, Genii, from the Ain Soph. It is from those self-realized atoms that the universe emerges, because they have the power of creation. But, within the Ain Soph, there are also those simple atoms that are yet to possess the superior bodies of the Being; they have to build them. The universe emerges, in order for us, those simple atoms, to build that. The simple, un-realized atoms have only three basic atoms or particles within namely, Proton, Neutron and Electron; Christianity calls them the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; or in Kabbalah, Kether, Chokmah and Binah; in Hinduism, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva... name them in the way that you like. There are three main atoms, within the atom. That is what is represented by the letter Hei.
Hei ה is the symbol of the Ain Soph. The letter ה Hei is spelled הא Hei-Aleph. Why? Because the shape of א Aleph, as I told you, is Iod-Iod-Vav; 26, 8, the symbol of the infinite. This means that within us, within the atomic star that we have in the Ain Soph, is hidden the infinite; or better said, the possibilities of developing cognizance of what the infinite is. For that, we have the build the four atoms. Who is the one that builds those atoms? The Divine Mother, because the Ain Soph is feminine.
The Ain Soph has five aspects. Those five aspects are represented by the letter ה Hei. The shape of the letter Hei is formed by a Daleth together with an Iod. The dash at the bottom of left of the letter Hei is an Iod, which is the 10th letter; within that Iod is hidden the possibility, the potentiality of developing all of the ten Sephiroth. The letter Daleth is the number four. When you have 4 + 10 (Iod) we have 14, which is synthesized kabbalistically as 5.
The first aspect of the ה Hei is the Cosmic Mother Space.
The second aspect is Mother Nature, that expresses as life.
The third aspect is your individual Mother; you have that aspect within your physicality, the one who has the power of creation. When we talk about creation, remember that the feminine aspect has the power of creation. You were in the womb of a woman for nine months. The man gives the seed, but, without the woman... life is not possible. That is why, when we talk about the creator, we talk about the woman; of course, the other polarity is also necessary, but it is the feminine aspect that does the work. In the case of Alchemy, it is the Divine Mother that takes charge of building that within you. This is the third aspect of Hei.
The fourth aspect is the Divine Mother Death. Death loves us so much, that when our body is sick, completely sick, she comes and takes our soul out of that body, because we are suffering. That is compassion. That is Death.
In the Gnostic doctrine, we teach how to die, psychologically speaking. We open the door for Mother Death; we are not afraid of death... death is the best; the death of all the impurities that we have, physically and psychologically. That is the fourth aspect.
When people ridicule the Gnostics in their work to eliminate the ego, their lust, their anger... and are themselves happy with their anger, their lust, their envy, etc... well, Mother Death will take care of those ones down there in the Infra-dimensions. We give to those inferior dimensions the name Averno, Hell, Inferno. Mother Death does that because the soul is suffering, full with anger, lust, pride, envy, laziness, gluttony, etc. So, the lost souls, those failures that do not want to change by their own will, they are annihilated by their Divine Mother down there: that is compassion, that is love.
What is the fifth aspect? The fifth is in your sexual organs; it is called the instinctual force, that forces that takes care of your digestive system. Have you ever wondered how it is that you can eat a large meal, and that after that, you do nothing? The stomach takes care of everything. Who is it that does that work? It is that aspect of the Divine Mother that in folk tales we call the Fairy Mother; it is related with the instinctual force.
That instinctual force also acts in the sexual organs. When, as a male, you have an erection, or as a female you have humidity, it is because the Divine Mother, the instinctual force of the physical body, gives you that. It is not only Lucifer that gives you the strength, it is also necessary that you prepare your organs; the Divine Mother instinctually does that. That is the instinct that in the previous lecture we called the common-sense. What is the common-sense? It is the instinctual force of Binah, the Holy Spirit, the Divine Mother that warns you to not do this or that; whenever you have a hunch, a gut feeling, that is the instinctual force, the Divine Mother acting within you, in your heart.
Unfortunately, we ignore that intelligence. People say that there is no intelligence in the universe; that the universe merely came into existence randomly, through an explosion. The irony of this kind of thinking is that they explain this theory with their intelligence; if there is no intelligence in the universe, then they must be stupid, they must be without intelligence.
In the time of Napoleon, a materialistic personage was showing him the way in which the universe was created: using oil and water, and creating circles that rotated around each other, forming a miniature universe where the center moved to the periphery and the periphery to the center. He did this by swirling the water in a cyclical fashion. This personage used this as an example to show how there was no need for intelligence to be involved in the creation of the universe. Master Samael, who related this story, said that the person doing this did not realize that in the example that he gave, he was the intelligence that was causing that miniature universe to form. Napoleon pointed out that, without the hand causing the water to circulate, nothing would have happened. Do you see the incongruency of our intellect? We use our intelligence to explain that there is no intelligence.
There is always intelligence; that intelligence has no form, but takes whatever form it pleases - it is the Divine Mother, the Hei, the Ain Soph, manifested in order to create within us the bodies that we need, the four atoms, the four Solar bodies. She is the one that creates that, inside of us. She does that through all of these elements. That is why the Gnostic works with the five aspects of the Hei, because we know that within that Hei, is the infinite; the infinite possibilities, if we open our arms. The fourth and fifth aspects of the Hei are hidden in the words “תהו ובהו Tohu Vabohu” meaning, “formless and void;” which is the chaotic state of the earth or physicality of the fornicators, whose consciousness is in a total darkness upon the face of the abyss. That is why Master Samael says:
“Any form of matter can be destroyed, yet the substance (or essence) of the matter continues in other dimensions. Thus, the Earth-substance or the Earth seed is deposited in the profound space of the universe, within the unknowable zero dimension. Such an Earth substance is the Iliaster. Eventually the Earth would remain deposited as a seed within the profundity of the infinite space, awaiting a new cosmic manifestation.
Let us remember that when a tree dies, its seeds remain. Within each seed there is the possibility of the development of a new tree. Likewise, when a planet dies, then its seed or its homogenous, insipid, insubstantial, colorless, odorless matter remains deposited within the bosom of the eternal Mother Space (the Ain Soph).
Such a seed in relation with the one is two. We must not forget that in order to be one, there is the necessity of being two. The one feels itself to be two (this, in other words, it talking about the sexual act). Thus, the primeval chaotic Earth, that seed world deposited in Mother Space, is the Omeyocan. It is a true paradise that during the time of inactivity vibrates with happiness."
We explained in other lectures that the Omeyocan is a Nahua word that describes the Ain Soph. Within the Ain Soph, all the atoms are happy; but, when manifestation occurs, so too comes the complication of the matter. That is why it is stated in Greek mythology that Ouranos married his own mother. Of course, if we understand the Space and all of the unfoldments of the Divine Mother, we understand what this is talking about. But, if we know that, then we also see how people mistakenly believe that the Greeks thought that Ouranos was an anthropomorphic God. No; the Greeks represented their thoughts, their myth, with human shapes because that form is the final outcome of that intelligence; the creation of the human being. This doesn't mean that the Ain Soph has a shape; it is merely represented that way. That is why we made this symbol here with the ten Chakras, the ten Sephiroth, the symbol of Ouranos; in order to represent that with a human shape, with intelligence. This is how we have to see it, in order to comprehend it.
Often, in experiences like the one I was relating to you, the intelligence that comes from the nothingness, in order to be comprehensible, takes a human form, just as that Master took the shape of a Genie in front of me. He doesn't need to take that form, but, in order to communicate with a dummy like me, he knew that I needed to see that form of the Genie.
Let us continue with the Pistis Sophia, that states:
“And the disciples had not seen Jesus because of the great light in which he was, or which was about him; for their eyes were darkened because of the great light in which he was. But they saw only the light, which shot forth many light rays. And the light-rays were not like one another, but the light was of diverse kind, and it was of diverse type, from below upwards, one ray more excellent than the other,......., in one great immeasurable glory of light; it stretched from under the earth right up to heaven. And when the disciples saw that light, they fell into great fear and great agitation.”
As it is quoted in the book of Revelation:
"I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and (Lucifer) the bright and morning star." - Revelation 22: 16
This is what happens when we see the splendid light of Venus ( the bright and morning star); we see a lot of light and we do not comprehend that "the bright and morning star" is the light of Christ, the Sun, the light of the world, and we are afraid of the light, afraid of Lucifer, because we are creatures of darkness. That is why, in Hebrew, we write הא-יהשוה Ha-Yeshua; that is the way in which you write the name of ones own individual, particular Yeshua, Jesus. We write it with the letters יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, and directly in the middle we place the letter ש Shin, which represents fire: Iod-Hei-Shin-Vav-Hei, יהשוה Yeshua. However, if you want to say, "The Yeshua" then you write, הא-יהשוה Ha-Yeshua, because within Yeshua is the mystery of הא Hei, which is the mystery of the light.
In the beginning, when the teachings of Christ, the Bible, was spreading, and many people were reading it, it was unfortunately being read literally. However, now we are explaining these teachings, and agitating the minds of people, because the light of Jesus is not seen by the inhabitants of the Earth. That is why we have to expound upon the qualities of Beings that exist in the universe; beginning with the bottom.
Master Samael says that there are four levels of inferior humans;
“1 instinctual human being.
2 emotional human being.
3 intellectual human being.
4 equilibrated human being.
“The human beings of the first, second, and third level constitute the circle of the confusion of tongues, the Tower of Babel."
Remember that in the Tower of Babel, all of the tongues, the languages of the people, are confused. That is because, in Hebrew, the word Balal בלל is similar to Babel בבל. Even the meaning of the word Babel is confused in this day and age; people still think that the Tower is a physical tower... it is a symbol. That tower is the symbol of humanity.
Babel means, "Ba" the gate, of "Bel" the Sun-Christ, whose particle in us is הבל Habel the Soul, in the pineal gland. Babel is the gate of the Sun-Christ, which is the pineal gland, the seat of Abel, the soul. Now, the word Balal, which is Hebrew for "confusion," is related with the Moon; the Moon which represents, in our head, the animal mind.
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.” - Matthew 7: 7, 8
There are a many people that love the Lord, which is Chokmah, the Son, the Light, or Barbelo as we explained in the previous lecture; the son of the Sun. Those people are divided into three types, as the Master explains. He continues:
“These three levels of humans do not understand each other. The instinctual level does not understand the intellectual. The emotional level does not understand the intellectual. The intellectual level does not understand the emotional.” - Samael Aun Weor
“Therefore is the name of it called בבל Babel; because יהוה did there (בלל balal) confound (mix, blend, intermingle; mash) the language of all the earth: and from thence did יהוה scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” - Genesis 11: 9
Let us expand upon these quotes of the Master, as they relate to Christianity. There are people that are instinctual Christians. You could ask such a person why they are Christian and they would reply that it is because their father, their mother, or some other family member is Christian. They do not know, nor necessarily care, what Christianity means; they inherited their religion. That is instinctual, mechanical religion.
There are other people that are emotionally centered; they are emotional Christians. If they are Catholic, they go to the church... that is good. They receive the Eucharist, the force of the Lord is there, in their beautiful churches, their beautiful temples.
The next, higher level, is the intellectual Christians. You hear them on the TV; they are very intellectual, they explain the Bible, memorize it... once I heard a preacher that was reciting all the names of God in each book of the Bible. That is good. But, does he understand any of that? No; he just memorized it. They explain the Bible according to their own level, and in doing so, contradict other religions, which are also divided into these three types. It is not only the Christians that are divided into the three types. You find these three levels of humans among the Muslims, among the Jews, etc. But, they do not know what the meanings of the teachings are. This is why the Lord says:
“Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” - Luke 23: 34
For example, do you know how you write the word Judah in Hebrew? Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, with Daleth placed directly after the letter Vav, as follows: יהודה. What does ד Daleth mean? Daleth is the fourth letter, it is the number four; Daleth is hydrogen, carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. That means that, those that belong to the Tribe of יהודה Judah, those that are true Jews, are the ones with those four superior bodies of the Being, the four atoms of the soul, created within. That is why Christ is the King of Kings; in order to reach the Malachim, to reach Tiphereth (the Causal body), you need to be a true Jew.
There are many people that call themselves Jews, by tradition; instinctual. There are those that call themselves Jews because they celebrate the Sabbath every Saturday; emotional. And, there are those that are very Kabbalistic, where they study according to their beliefs; intellectual.
Among the Buddhists as well, you find the three types; the instinctual, the emotional, the intellectual. That is why to teach this is to move away from these three levels. The type of knowledge that we find here relates to the fourth type; the equilibrated human being.
Whatever your religion is, if you want to be the fourth type, you have to equilibrate your three brains; you have to learn to use your intellect, your emotion and your instinct. The instinctual force that can liberate you is in the sexual organs: You have to be very spiritual, you have to develop your heart: And you have to understand these things with your intellect, an illuminated intellect. This is how you become equilibrated. But, for that, you have to study psychology.
The equilibrated man follows the right path. He is not identified with the intellectuals, neither with the emotional ones, nor the instinctual ones. He goes within himself (or herself) in order to equilibrate himself. You do not need to make idols, as the Bible says; the instinctual, emotional and intellectual types walk with a great deal of idols, of images, within. They have many wrong interpretations of what is written in their religious scriptures.
The equilibrated man understands everything and respects all beliefs. Such a one respects all people, even if they do not know anything about their religion, but merely practice their traditions. That is ok; everyone is at their own level. But, if you identify with any of those levels - intellectual, emotional, instinctual - you enter into the confusion of tongues, because they are contradictory.
You find in the street those people that knock at your door, called Jehovah's Witnesses. They persuade people to enter into their religion through the use of intellect. People that do not know anything of the Bible become convinced because those Jehovah's Witnesses intellectually explain the teachings, according to their level. However, if you are equilibrated, you are not identified, you enter into any religion, because you understand that all religions are pearls from Ouranos, Heaven. And, that your Father, who is in Ouranos, has to guide you.
A poet says: "I raise my eyes in order to see the stars of the firmament, so that they may guide my life (astrologically speaking). But, I always follow the Inner Star that shines within my consciousness." There is only one God that you have to love. That God is not outside; it is within you. You are the physical outcome of that star. When you penetrate within yourself and start worshipping your own Inner Star, he feels happiness. That Star wants to self-realize, to create the four atoms. But, if you are identified with the Tower of Babel, with beliefs, with traditions, you will never create that. You will merely be forever going in circles. All of those people worship Christ, which is Bel. They are worshippers of the Lord; whether they call it Christ, Bel, Ahura-Mazda, Osiris, Allah, Elijah... it doesn't matter. That Solar force is one; this is what we have to understand.
Now, there exists an opposite of the kingdom of the confusion of tongues, and only the fourth type of humans are capable of entering into that kingdom; the Kingdom of Heaven. The Kingdom of Heaven has nothing to do with beliefs; it has to do with creation.
The first thing that we have to create within is called the Inner Jesus Christ. That is the first level. That inner Jesus Christ is called the Astral body, in esotericism. The Astral body, when you create it, you experience the birth of the Lord Christ in the stable of Bethlehem. Where is the stable of Bethlehem? It is in your physicality; where all your animality is. From there, that Jesus, that solar body, is developed, until it is a complete Astral body. That is why Master Samael says:
“The third serpent rises through the medullar canal of the Astral specter (our inner Lunar emotional force). The third serpent must reach the magnetic field at the root of the nose, and then from there descend to the heart through a secret passageway within where seven holy chambers exist.
When the third serpent reaches the heart, a most beautiful child, the Christ-astral is born. The outcome of all this is the Initiation. The neophyte has to experience within his Astral Body the entire drama of the Passion of Christ. He has to be crucified, die and be buried. He has then to resurrect and must also descend to the Abyss and remain there for forty days before the Ascension.
Everyone who attains the Third Initiation of Major Mysteries receives the Holy Spirit (which is a spiritual force).”
“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves....... take no thought how or what you shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what you shall speak. For it is not you that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaks in you.” - Matthew 10: 16, 19, 20
This is what Master Jesus said in the Bible.
“Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” - Luke 13: 23-25
That straight gate is sexual alchemy. You want to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven? Well, the first element you need in order to be in the Kingdom of Heaven is the Astral body, which is called Christ.
If you clairvoyantly investigate in the Tower of Babel the three levels of Christians - the intellectual Christians, the emotional Christians, the instinctual Christians - who among them have at least the Astral Christ within? Nobody. They believe in the Lord, they love the Lord, but they do not possess the Astral body. Why? Because they think that by merely believing in Jesus they can enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; no, you have to be born again. To be born again is not a matter of belief. If you think that to be born again is a matter of belief, I would like for you to show me the woman that could believe herself to be pregnant, and to see if a baby could be born from her uterus merely by believing; that is not possible. She needs the sperm, and only then can the physical body be born. It is the same thing if you want the Astral body, the Inner Christ, to be born within. When the Inner Christ is born within you, then you understand why the Lord says you have to be born again.
One of those intellectual Jews at the time of Jesus, called Nicodemus, came to him and said:
"Rabbi, we know that thou art a Master come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a Rabbi of Israel (a Kabbalist), and knowest not these things?" - John 3: 2-10
Thus this is how, Master Jesus explained, alchemically, symbolically the manner in which one has to be born again. Yet, the people of the Tower of Babel think that merely by going into a river, or by being baptized as a child, or any other symbolic baptism, that they are being born again. "But, the reality is, in order to truly be born again, you need to be baptized by your own and your spouse's creative, sexual waters; you need to know how to transmute the sexual energy, with Alchemy." Only then can you build your inner Christ, only then can you understand what it is to be a Christian.
Because “Christ in itself is a cosmic force, and this force can save a human being only if in some way this force is humanized. Sacrifice for humanity is the law of the Solar Logos, the Cosmic Christ. It has been sacrificing itself since the dawn of life by crucifying itself within all the worlds, within every planet that emerges into existence, in order for all the beings to have life and to have this life in abundance.” - Samael Aun Weor
That is why, when talking about the Inner Christ, Master Samael says:
“Within the inner Jesus Christ of each one of us, the creative energy shines marvelously.
“The Logos is the Perfect Multiple Unity.
“In the world of the Logos, diversity is unity.
“The inner Christ within each one of us is beyond individuality, personality, and the “I.”
“All beings are indeed one in the Lord.
“Many rays bud in the “Christ-Light,” and from the “Christ-Light.”
“Each Logoic ray is of a diverse type and distinct class. However, all the rays in themselves constitute the Logos.
“Each ray is the living expression of this or that adept, or of this or that Christified One.”
“Every Logoic ray serves as a foundation for this or that Hierophant.
“The existence of any adept would be inconceivable, if we exclude from the depth of his Being his corresponding ray of Light.
“In the final synthesis, all the rays of Light are reduced to one, which stretches itself into one immeasurable Glory of Light, from the Abyss right up to heaven.” - The Gnostic Bible: The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor
We placed this graphic of the ten Sephiroth next to this quote taken from the Gnostic Bible. You see in the center of our Tiphereth, which is our heart, is where that Lord shines. The Astral body is the body of emotions, that a human being builds. That Astral body is not related with the Tower of Babel, with its fanatic people identified with their beliefs, who express their beliefs through their heart with great jealousy. The one that has the Inner Christ developed, develops superior emotions; such a one has compassion for those that love the Lord and believe they are on the path, though they are not.
The Lord loves everybody, because, as it is written in that quote; "... for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." Without the Lord, the Solar light, there would be no life on this planet. Without the Lord, we cannot build the Solar bodies.
However, it is not only the Astral body that we need to have developed. In order to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven we need to build our Solar Mental body. The type of mind that we have now is animal. We have the intellectual animal mind, that is nourished with the five senses. The Solar Mental body, represented by Buddha, is our own particular, individual Buddha; it is another atom that we need to build. When you build the Solar Mental body, then you enter into the Kingdom of the Buddha. Buddha Gautama Shakyamuni taught the wisdom of the Mental body. You can imbibe yourself with that wisdom in Buddhism. But, how many Buddhists have the Solar Mental body? Not too many.
Speaking of this, I remember a story of the Master Samael Aun Weor: In the internal planes he went to Tibet, to investigate all of those monks, amongst whom there are a lot of Masters. Among those Masters was the previous Dalai Lama. Master Samael approached the Dalai Lama - who is a Master with all of the Solar bodies within - Master Samael whispered to the Dalai Lama, "Do you know that all of your disciples here are intellectual animals?" The Dalai Lama replied, "Please, do not say that to them. I know that they are intellectual animals, but, they are working on themselves, and eventually they will receive the real doctrine in order to create their Inner Buddha within. They are working with their Buddhadatu (the Buddha seed). I know that they need to create their Solar bodies, but if you scare them now..." And Master Samael said, "Don't worry, I won't say anything, but I was wondering if you knew that." "Yes, I know" said the Dalai Lama.
So, there are a lot of Buddhists that are truly, very dedicated to Buddhism, but they do not have their Solar Mental body, though they are working to control their mind. In order to be a real Buddhist, you need to have the Solar Mental body; and for that, you need to know Tantra. Tantrism is not unknown in Buddhism, but most of the monks are sexually abstinent. Only those that know Alchemy build the Solar bodies.
“When the fourth serpent (related with the 4th body, Netzach, the mind) has succeeded in the ascent through the medullar canal of the mental specter (which is what we have; the Lunar mental body), then the Fourth Initiation of Major Mysteries is attained. The fourth serpent also reaches the space between the eyebrows and descends to the heart. In the world of the mind, Sanat Kumara always welcomes the candidate saying, “You have liberated yourself from the four bodies of sin. You are a Buddha. You have entered the world of the Gods. You are a Buddha. Everyone who liberates himself of the four bodies of sin is a Buddha. You are a Buddha. You are a Buddha."
The cosmic festivity of this Initiation is grandiose. The entire world, the entire universe trembles with happiness, saying, “A new Buddha has been born.” The Divine Mother Kundalini presents her child in the temple saying, “This is my beloved child. He is a new Buddha. He is a new Buddha. He is a new Buddha. The great masters of the Mind extract from within the mental specter the beautiful child of the Christ-mind."
Paul of Tarsus talks about the Christ-Mind, he says:
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God 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 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 searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but 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 teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth 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 judgeth 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 of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2: 7-16
"We have the Mind of Christ." When we read that, we realize that he is talking about the Solar Mental body.
“When the authentic Mental Body is born, we immortalize ourselves in the world of 12 laws (the world of Mercury or of the Mind).
Whosoever reaches the Fourth Initiation receives the Globe of the Imperator of the Mind. The sign of the cross shines upon this globe. The mind must be crucified and stigmatized in the Initiation. The universal fire sparkles within the World of the Mind. Each one of the thirty-three chambers of the mind teaches us terrible truths.” - Samael Aun Weor
One of those terrible truths we will name now: One of those types of people who belong to the Tower of Babel, the confusion of tongues, are called atheists. We cannot name them the fourth type, because they deny Divinity. In other words, an atheist is a person that believes not, that denies his true Self. That type of person thinks that God is some being that resides in the clouds, as many ignorant people think. They think that God is some anthropomorphic tyrant throwing lightning against this ant-hill of humanity. That God does not exist, never existed and will not exist. God is coessential with the Abstract Absolute Space; he does not need form, but takes any shape before the mystic that is meditating in order to communicate with him. God can also communicate without shape, through the mind of the one that has the Solar Mind. But, the Atheists are close-minded; they close the doors to the Spirit. Which Spirit? Their own particular, individual Spirit. So, a true atheist is the one that is divorced from his Inner Being. He doesn't open the doors from Him. He says, "God doesn't exist." God doesn't exist for him, or her, because they cannot see God with their five senses. But, as we explained in the previous lecture, if you develop all of the senses of the spinal column, then you can experience and see.
Why do you think I have gone into the Ain Soph, and have spoken to Gods and my own Innermost... because I am selected? No. The reason is simple; I am a practical Alchemist. What I do, you can do also. Then you will see what I am telling you. I have taken the time to develop the inner senses of my spine, that in Hinduism are called the seven chakras. We do not develop the seven chakras in order to show ourselves off, or to pry into the private lives of other people, as the black magicians do; they investigate the mind, the lives of other people, and then gossip, criticize them publicly. Those tenebrous powers are the powers of the ego, not of the Spirit. No, the reason to develop the chakras is to learn to talk with God, to experience superior forces, not to show off yourself.
Often, when people talk to me, I say things that they think are very weird; and I realize that I have to bite my tongue, because these people are bound in the five senses. How could I explain something that I know is true for me, to such a person? So, if people ask, "Do you believe in God?" I say, "No, I don't believe in God," because that belief is related with the mind. I say, "I know that God exists." The one that experiences God does not need to believe; only the ignorant people that do not know what God is need to believe or not to believe. However, in the beginning, it is necessary to have that belief, because you do not have the faculties to know, to experience; but later on, all beliefs are pushed aside, replaced by experiential knowledge, which is superior to belief. We have this saying on the front of our website: Experience is better than belief.
I'm going to tell you a secret. Experience is better than belief, right? How do you think you say the word "experience" in Hebrew, in Kabbalah? Chavah חוה. Chavah חוה means to experience; Chavah חוה, translated into English, is Eve. So, Eve is better than believe. And, who is Eve? Eve represents the sexual organ; Adam represents the brain, physical vehicle of the mind. To experience with your mind is better than to believe. This is what is written in the Bible:
And Adam (the brain) called his wife's name (Chavah חוה) Eve; because (in any sephirah of the tree of life) she (the genitalia, Yesod) is the mother of all life.
Yet, people read that, and they think that there was a man and woman in a beautiful garden, who made a mistake, etc., etc. There is a lot of symbolism in the Bible that we have to understand and comprehend, especially when you develop your inner senses and spinal medulla. If you open the doors of those people that do not possess the senses to understand the Alchemical book of Genesis, they interpret things intellectually and start believing non-sensical things.
Let us read what the Master Samael says, regarding the Ain Soph:
“The Omeyocan is also named Yoalli Ehecatl due to the wind and darkness. Ehecatl is the God of cosmic movement, the God of the Wind (the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים.) Yoalli Ehecatl, the great cosmic movement of the Omeyocan, is the place where the authentic happiness of the world reigns, it is profound inexhaustible joy."
Here we see a Nahua scultpure of Ehecatl.
"Ehecatl intervened in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Ehecatl is known as the God of the wind among the Aztecs. Ehecatl entered the tomb of Jesus on the third day and uttered with a loud voice, “Jesus, rise from within your tomb, with your body.” Then, Ehecatl induced activity and movement within the body of Jesus. Ehecatl is a lovely angel and Spirit of Movement. The Lords of Movement regulate all the activities of cosmic movement. The Aztecs worshiped Ehecatl."
Ehecatl is an Angel. If you manage to go out of your body and invoke him, he will come and talk to you; he is a great Angel. Not only him, but many other Angels will talk with you, if you invoke them. What are Angels? They are perfect human beings; with Astral, Mental and Causal bodies.
"There are cosmic days and cosmic nights. When the Earth is in a germinal state, when any given planet is found deposited in a germinal state within the bosom of profound space, it slumbers; yet while being two, they are found to be one. After a certain period of activity, the electrical impulse, the electrical hurricane, makes all of the positive and negative aspects enter into activity. This is why it is stated that within the Omeyocan there is wind and darkness. We do not want to state darkness in the complete sense of the word; this is only an allegorical way of speaking.
Let us remember in the Egyptian mysteries when the priests would approach the neophytes. They would whisper in their ears, “Osiris is a dark God.” Yet, Osiris is not darkness.
The fact of the matter is that the light of the pure Spirit, the light of the great Reality, is darkness to the intellect.
This is why it is stated that within the Omeyocan there is only darkness and wind, that is to say, cosmic movement.
This is where the uncreated light emerges from and where the universal movement represented by Ehecatl is developed.” - Samael Aun Weor
Do you see how the symbol of Osiris is always represented a Dark God? In all the murals or hieroglyphics of Egypt, he is always dark. But, he is not dark; indeed, he is only dark for us because we cannot see the ultra-violet light.
We have spoken thus far about the Astral body and the Mental body, but there is another body that we have to create, if what we want is to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; the body of Willpower, the Causal body. The Causal body is that body which is the vesture of the Soul, called Tiphereth. Tiphereth exists in each one of us. If you investigate the Tiphereth among the individuals of this humanity, you always discover a baby. Most of the souls in Tiphereth of this humanity are babies. When you find an adult at the level of Tiphereth, in relation with someone that you are investigating, you will know that that person has a Causal body. Only the one that has developed a Causal body is a complete human in Tiphereth; before that, they are only a baby. But, we all have a reality at the level of Tiphereth; but, that reality is that of a baby.
“When our willpower is liberated, then it blends or fuses itself with the universal willpower. Thus, as an outcome of this, when integrated like this, our willpower becomes sovereign.
The individual willpower fused with the universal willpower can accomplish all the miracles of Moses."
Moses represents the Causal body, the body of Tiphereth:
"There are three types of action:
- Those which correspond to the law of accidents.
- Those which belong to the law of recurrence, actions always repeated in each (physical) existence.
- Actions which are intentionally determined by the conscious willpower.”
“The Vesture of the Son and the one of the Child of the Child, which is the Christified Causal Body, marvelously glisten in the Lord.”
“The seventh level of human being belongs to those who have built the Causal Body.” - Samael Aun Weor
In other words, after the fourth type of individual that we were talking about - the equilibrated man - comes the fifth type; the one with the Astral body. The sixth is the one with the Mental Solar body, the Buddha. The seventh, represented by Moses; the Causal body. Those are the three types of human beings that you find that are real Christians, real Jews, real Muslims, because they have the vehicles needed to understand what God is.
Now, among this seventh type, there are those that become more developed and enter into higher levels of Ouranos. For instance, Buddhism names those higher levels as the Dharmakayas, Nirmanakayas, Sambhogakayas; those are beings that are fully developed in the Lord. Beyond that, there are the beings that enter into the bosom of the Father, and become one with him; they become one with the Ain. The bosom of the Father is the Ain; the bosom of the Mother is the Ain Soph. We came from the bosom of the Mother, the Ain Soph, because she has the duty of creating all of this that we are speaking about here. When she creates that, she creates that which we call the Auros (Horus), the Christ within us; then, we return into the bosom of the Father, which is the Ain.
Ain, in Hebrew, means nothingness. It is nothingness because it is nothing related with anything in this universe; it is something unknown. There is something there, but it is nothing related with matter, nothing related with energy. The beings that abide in that nothingness are called Paramarthasatyas. The Paramarthasatyas are the real Christians, the real Jews, the real Adi-Buddhas; you could also call them the real Ahura-Mazdas, or Zoroasters. When they enter into the bosom of the Father, they remain there. Within that bosom, they exalt themselves, little by little, with such a development that is incomprehensible for us. They are beyond our comprehension. That is the higher level of Christians.
This is what Jesus came to teach, because he is one Paramarthasatya; he is an inhabitant of the Ain. He dictated the Pistis Sophia to his disciples in order for us to understand the path. But, the so-called Christians of the Tower of Babel do not know anything about this. They think that they are going to enter directly into the bosom of the Father, just because they believe in Jesus... Meanwhile they don't have the Inner Jesus Christ developed; they could not enter into the lower Kingdoms of Heaven, let alone the bosom of the Father. For that, you need Alchemy; it is not a matter of believing. You can believe what ever you want, that does not mean that it will come true. That is why Jesus says:
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must (the causal body) the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” - John 3: 14, 15
When you create the Causal body, then a great being appears before you and asks you, "Are you happy with your development? Or do you want to enter into the higher development?" If, when asked that question, you are happy with your level of development, then you enter into Nirvana. However, if you are not, you have to follow the Straight Path. On that path, you have to pay your karma, and you have to suffer a lot. You have to return to the physical world. This path is the path of the Nirmanakayas, Sambhogakayas and Dharmakayas; the path to become a Paramarthasatya. If you decide to follow that path, the Straight Path, they respect that decision - you see? That is the body of Willpower - then, the guardian shows you your future, according to your level. He shows you what you will receive during your life; your karma. Then, the initiate returns. That is the path of the Lord, at the higher levels.
To walk that path, you need to have Moses within, the Logos within. That is why, when Jesus transfigured himself in front of his disciples, Moses was to one side of him, and Elijah to the other. In order to receive that transfiguration, you have to create your own individual, particular Moses; you have to have your own Elijah within. Then, you can enter. That is the meaning of the transfiguration of the Lord.
Master Samael Aun Weor stated:
"Before the manifestation of the Solar Logos, that is (Christ-Light), the Multiple Perfect Unity, the infinite quietude whirls about within the Omeyocan. In the sacred land of Anahuac, the Solar Logos was always named Quetzalcoatl. Indubitably, Quetzalcoatl as Logos exists long before any cosmic manifestation.
The Omeyocan is the navel of the universe that intensely vibrates and palpitates within reciprocal whirlwinds, where the infinitely large bursts into the infinitely small, where the large encounters the small, where the macrocosm encounters the microcosm.
With the dawn of any universe, the electrical hurricane makes all of the atoms palpitate in the form of whirls within the Omeyocan, within the navel of the universe, within the cosmic womb, while being two.
In the Omeyocan, the Tloque Nahuaque is the nocturnal tempest of all possibilities. Because when the electric movement, the electric hurricane, the electric whirl, makes all of those atoms spin within the chaotic matter, all the possibilities of universal life persist."
Obviously, there are atoms that do not possess the four seed atoms. But, those that have already built those atoms, like the Master I spoke to in that experience I related to you... they are Gods and sub-Gods; they are the Elohim. They appear and help the students, like a teacher. When you become a teacher, you are told to go to the school in order to teach the children; likewise with those atoms that have attained to self-realization. They are told to go back and teach the babies, and that is what they do.
"The Omeyocan is the lord of the night, the black Tezcatlipoca (another Nahua word) who, when denying her Self, bursts into light and the universe is born that fecundates, that drives Quetzalcoatl, the Solar Logos.
Tezcatlipoca in its feminine aspect represents the moon and God Mother who is precisely (the Ain Soph) the womb of the world.
This is why it is stated that Tezcatlipoca bursts into light; the Mother, which as a matter of fact, was fecundated by the Logos, swells like a lotus flower (in pregnancy) and thus finally this universe is born. It is stated in Nahuatl that Quetzalcoatl then directs and drives the universe that emerged into existence."
That Quetzalcoatl is not a person; it is the union of all that light, at the different levels. We are guided by Quetzalcoatl. If you don't like that name, we can call it Christ; if you don't like that, you could call it Ahura-Mazda; if you are scientifically minded, as the people are of this present time, we can call it the Solar Light. Without the Solar Light, we cannot live.
"The Logos, the Multiple Perfect Unity, is radical. Yet, he turns himself asunder into the forty-nine fires in order to work with this rising universe. Unquestionably, the one who directs the universe is precisely the Logos, Quetzalcoatl (the Christ).
It (the Christ-Light) is the cosmic consciousness governing, directing that which is, has been, and shall be…” - Samael Aun Weor
This is true of any planet, and any Sun of the universe; not only in the planet Earth.
Let us finish by repeating the word of this great Paramarthasatya, whose name is Aberamentho. He says, I am the Alpha and the Omega. His name, A-beramenth-o, begins with A, alpha, and ends with O, omega.
“Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am (Bel) the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of (Chaia Binah, the Holy Spirit) life.” - John 8: 12
“The Sethians (those that followed Seth, the third son of Adam and Eve, in the time of Lemuria) worshiped the Great Light, they said that the light emanations of the divine substance of (Bel) the Sun form a nest in us and that this constitutes the Serpent.” - Krumm Heller (Huiracocha)
You see? The Solar force forms a nest. Do you know how you call that nest in Hebrew? Cain. So, Cain forms a nest in us, that is the serpent, the same creative force. If you fornicate like that animals, if you behave like an animal, sexually speaking, you are a slave of Cain. If you control your sexual energy, your sexual power, you start controlling Cain, the serpent. Then you develop.
We will repeat this quote:
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” - John 3: 14, 15
“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. - Matthew 10: 16
In conclusion; we leave the kingdom of confusion, Babel, by following Alchemy. That is how we enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Only when you begin to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, awakening there, will you realize where you actually were before; you will realize that you were in Hell. We are inhabitants of Hell; in this day and age, you cannot deny that.
Audience: Do you need to have the Solar bodies in order to have experiences related with God?
Instructor: No. What you need in order to experience what God is, is discipline, meditation. You have a baby inside; that baby is the Buddhadatu. You can develop that Buddhadatu with the annihilation of lust, anger, pride, vanity, laziness, gluttony, etc... all of those defects that we have within; by annihilating them, psychologically speaking, through the techniques that we teach, then you develop that Buddhadatu. As a result, in meditation, you can experience these things that we talk about here, with your consciousness.
This is what the great meditators, like Yogananda, did. Yogananda experienced a lot of those Heavens, because he was a very dedicated Yogi. The Yogis are the ones that learn to control the mind. When he died, he did not go to Heaven; he went to Limbo, but with a very awakened consciousness. In Limbo, Master Samael Aun Weor found him, and said to him, "You are here because you are not self-realized. Regardless of all of your development, all of your experiences that you have had, you need to create the Astral body, the Mental body and the Causal body, in order to enter into that Kingdom that you experienced. You were there, in the Kingdom of Heaven, as a tourist."
You can experience the Kingdom of Heaven as a tourist, in a Samadhi. But, if you want to be an inhabitant of those Kingdoms, you need to build the Astral, Mental and Causal bodies. You need to pass through the experience of Resurrection, and to acquire an Immortal Body of Liberation; the Solar physical body. Then, if you die physically, you enter into the Kingdom. However, if you do not possess those bodies, you cannot.
Audience: Does the amount of ego we annihilate correspond to how fast we build our Solar bodies? How many years does it take to build the Solar bodies?
Instructor: Well, if you annihilate your ego during the process of building the Solar bodies, the Solar bodies build faster. But, it is not necessary to annihilate the ego, in order to build the Solar bodies. That is why, when you build the Solar bodies and are still with ego, you become what we call a centaur; half man, half beast. A hasnamuss. All of us are hasnamussen, at different levels. But, the higher level of hasnamuss is the one that has the Astral, Mental and Causal bodies, but still with the ego within.
That is why, if you enter into the path and begin annihilating the ego, that is the best course of action. When you reach the level of human being, which is Tiphereth, the Causal body, and you have been diligently annihilating the ego, the path becomes much easier. The problem comes when you have the ego very alive, and you enter into the Straight Path; the Masters of karma come and collect the karma that you owe. It becomes very painful when you have the ego alive.
All of us have the duty of annihilating the ego, whether we have the Solar bodies or not. The thing is, when you do not have the Solar bodies, then nature will take care of you in Hell. There the ego will be annihilated and you will again become a beautiful baby, or in other words, an elemental, a fairy; an innocent soul. You will again pass through the mineral kingdom as a gnome, into the plant kingdom, into the animal kingdom and finally into the intellectual animal kingdom. When you reach the level of intellectual animal again, you will again be given the opportunity to build the Solar bodies. Only the intellectual animals have the possibility of building those bodies; you need the intellect in order to do that. The reason for that is, without the intellect, you are merely an animal that obeys the instinct. Our instinct has to be transformed into intuition, which is the instinct developed, perfected.
Audience: So, if you don't have to kill the ego to build the Solar bodies, then what are the ordeals that you face when you are raising the sexual energy through the vertebra, up the spinal medulla?
Instructor: I did not say that you do not eliminate any ego when you are practicing Alchemy, building the Solar bodies. Inevitably, you annihilate part of your ego when you build the Solar bodies. In each initiation a certain animal part of you dies, and the human part is born. But, the totality of the ego at those different levels is not necessary to be annihilated, in order to be born again.
As Master Samael Aun Weor stated in Aztec Christic Magic:
"Nine Initiations of Minor Mysteries and nine of Major Mysteries exist. There is no initiation without purification. In each initiation something dies within the human being (see The Book of the Dead). We must lose everything in order to gain everything."
Thus, if you annihilate your ego before being born again - as in the case of Yogananda; he is dead, at different levels - it will be easy to create the Astral, Mental and Causal bodies, because he did a lot of work in the annihilation of the ego. But, that is not necessary.
This is the problem of this day and age with regards to giving the doctrine: Master Samael said that we have to give the doctrine so that people can be born again, at the very least to the level of the Astral body. When you create the Astral body, then you avoid falling into the Abyss, you remove yourself from the cycle of 108 lives. That does not mean that you are done; you have to continue doing the work of annihilating the ego, and building the other atoms. But, at least you are now immortal with the Astral body, so you have the opportunity to continue. If you do not yet possess the Astral body, you still belong to that cycle of the 108 lives; then, at the end of that cycle, the mechanical laws of nature will take you down... whether you want it or not, whether you like it or not, whether you believe in it or not. That is the second death.
So, with the building of the Astral body, it is a good beginning, because the Lord Christ, your individual Christ, takes you to the Father. But, the path is very long. There are always opportunities for those that repent. Remember; there is more happiness for a repenteed sinner in Heaven, than for the just one that does not need to repent.
Audience: Where does the name Aberamentho come from?
Instructor: Aberamentho is the name that is the property of the Master Jesus of Nazareth. That is his name, as a Paramarthasatya. He has had that name since the very beginning of time, when he was formed in the Ain Soph, and many Cosmic days before. He began his work, just like any one of us, and in previous Cosmic days he became the highest initiate of the Solar Epoch. That is why he is called the Christ. But, he is not the only Paramarthasatya. He is, however, the only Paramarthasatya that we know of that abandoned the bosom of the Father in order to come here to help. But, there are more Paramarthasatyas.
Aberamentho is the boss of the White Lodge that is active in this planet Earth. Below him are many Masters, many illuminated Masters. Samael Aun Weor, our Master, the creator of this school, is one of them; he obeys the commands of Master Jesus. Master Samael is an inhabitant of the Ain Soph, but Jesus is an inhabitant of the Ain. All of them, all of those Masters, sacrifice for us.
His name is Aberamentho, in the same way that Master Samael Aun Weor's name is Samael Aun Weor. You have your own Inner Name within. It is written in the book of Revelation, related with the Church of Pergamos and the creation of the Astral body:
"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it." - Revelation 2: 17
That is the name of your Monad; your Inner Name.
"Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name."
In Heaven, Ouranos, you have a name. You have to discover that by yourself.
I know the name that is in my Inner Star. All of you have a name; this is how we are recognized internally. When they approach me in the internal planes, they do not call me by the name of my personality here. My real, true name... I know it, and it is with that name that they approach me. In the same way, you have to receive your name.
The first time that I saw my Inner Name, I saw it in the mirror of Alchemy, in the internal planes. I had forgotten it. That is not the name that you are baptized with, that is given to your personality here: No, that name is in the Ain Soph. That is your true name. Obviously, when you manifest, it unfolds into different Kingdoms and finally you enter into the physical domain; you are born as a baby, and your parents give you whatever name they feel like giving you. But, that is merely the name of your personality. That is not your name. Your name is inside, in your Spirit. Discover it and enjoy it.
So, Fiat Lux, may the light be with you!
Thank you very much.
