We are following the sequence of lectures about the book of Genesis. Now we are entering into the third chapter that relates with the mystery of the serpent, that you can see in first graphic of the PDF Moses the Mystery of Baphomet is in the staff of Moses. On the right appears Baphomet, which is a word that has to be read backwards “Tem-o-h-p-ab”. It means in Latin templi omnium hominum pacis abbas, "Peace of the Father to all men in the temple."
We have to understand that when we address Baphomet, we are addressing the Cherubim that is mentioned in the book of Genesis as the guardian of the gate of Eden.
“So he drove out Adam; and he placed at the east of the Garden of Eden the Cherubim and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the Tree of Life.” - Genesis 3: 24
The Cherubim in accordance with the Tree of Life are those creatures of the Sephirah Yesod in the World of Formation, Yetzirah, which is the world related with the Sephirah Binah, Iod-Havah Elohim, the Holy Spirit in the Tree of Life.
Cherubim means “strong ones.” The strength of these angels is represented in many ways. That strength is related with the Sephirah Yesod, the sexual force. The world of Yetzirah, formation, relates to the world of Yesod, which is the Sephirah related with the sexual energy, and is ruled by Iod-Havah Elohim, Binah, the third Sephirah of the first triangle of the Tree of Life.
In the world of Yetzirah, there are different names related with each Sephirah of the ten Sephiroth that we call the Tree of Life. At the very top of the Tree of Life, the Sephirah Kether corresponds to the Hebrew name Chaioth ha Kadosh, which means "The Holy Creatures." When we address Baphomet we are also addressing the Holy Creatures. The Holy Creatures are mentioned in the Book of Ezekiel, in the very first chapter; he describes the four creatures that we call Chaioth ha Kadosh, “sacred animals.” The legs or feet of this Cherub are the feet of a calf, which, as you see, is a Kabbalistic symbol that we find that also related with Baphomet.
“The word of Iod-Havah came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Shedim by [Yesod] the river Chebar; and the hand [iad] of Iod-Havah was there upon him…. And [the Shedim] their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot…. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Iod-Havah. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one speaking.” - Ezekiel 1: 3, 7, 28
When in Kabbalah we enter in the World of Formation, which is the world of Yetzirah, we find many symbols related to these sacred animals, which in Hebrew are called Chaioth (plural) or Chaiah (singular). The Hebrew word Chaiah also means “life.” So, when we address the animals, Chaioth ha Kadosh, we are addressing the life that is within them, which in Sanskrit are called Tattvas, and that physically we call the elements (fire, air, water, earth). That is why in Kabbalah, in Alchemy, when we address Baphomet, the Cherub, we are addressing the forces of the elements that are synthesized in the sephirah Yesod, which is the sexual energy.
This is the only way to understand this mysterious Baphomet, a symbol that scares the ignoramuses. Indeed, Baphomet is just a symbol, that as you can see, is related with the forces of the sexual energy.
To begin, look at the Caduceus of Mercury, this is making his phallus. This indicates that the energy that the initiate works with is the sexual energy in activity. This is why in the previous lectures I mentioned the word “temper.” [In Spanish, the word for temper is 'temple' related to the word for temple; and the Spanish word 'templar' means 'to temper'.]
Templi omnium hominum pacis abbas
Pacis abbas: “peace of the Father.” What Father are we addressing here? The Father is represented by the sephirah Kether, the first Sephirah of the Tree of Life. The Father unfolds into the mysterious Tree of Knowledge, Daath, which is the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and becomes the Father as the sephirah Binah, which in different lectures we address. In Christianity, the sephirah Binah is called the Holy Spirit, which is Shiva, that receives the strength of the first triangle of the Tree of Life. Shiva, in Daath, has his kingdom in Yesod, which is the sexual energy.
In Kabbalah, the sephirah Binah is called Abba and Aima, Father and Mother, the duality of God that is hidden in the Hebrew word Elohim. But this power also is in the holy name of God Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, which is translated as Jehovah.
The feet of this symbol symbolize the forces of the earth, since the calf is the symbol of earth, and it is the sephirah Malkuth, the earth, that which receives the Peace of the Father. In Gnostic axioms we say, "May peace be with you so that you can be heirs of the light!"
What peace are we addressing here? When we say "May peace be with you so that you can be heirs of the light," we are addressing the light of the sephirah Kether, which is peace.
“May peace reign in all hearts; let us not forget that peace is light. Let us not forget that peace is an Essence emanated from the Absolute. It is light emanated from the Absolute [Ain Soph Aur]. This light is the light of the Ancient of Days [Kether]. Christ said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.” John 14:27. – Samael Aun Weor
That crown that is always protected in different religions. To begin with, in Judaism you observe the use of the Kippah, while the Sikhs use the turban, and in many other religions you see that they always keep a covering on top of their head, which symbolizes the covering of the light of the crown of the Father that everybody has in different tonalities, according to the power of the pineal gland.
That light is what we call peace, which descends from the Superior Worlds, and settles in the pineal gland in the center of the brain. The Chakra Sahasrara, the crown chakra, relates to the pineal gland. In the pineal gland we have the atom of the Holy Spirit, Binah, Shiva. So therefore, the light of the Father descends into the pineal gland, in the very center of the brain. That light is what we call “the Peace of the Father to All Men.”
Now, when we are addressing “men,” we are addressing manas, mind, that mind that utilizes the brain as a vehicle in the physical world in order to act. The brain is the physical vehicle of the mind, of the manas, of the “man” (Adam).
In the central nervous system is what we call the Throne of God, the Throne of the Father. This is something very important that we have to address in relation with Binah, because we are addressing here the World of Yetzirah, the World of Formation, where we find these creatures, symbols that only the initiates know about.
The light of Kether descends through what we call the cerebrospinal fluid. You know that we have a fluid in the cerebral spinal nervous system; the brain and spinal medulla float in a liquid, in a fluid. That is what is called the Positive Force of Binah, the Positive Force of the Father. That, in Alchemy, is called Adam, for that force descends through the brain to the end of the spinal column, Yesod, and this is precisely what we call the Light of the Father. So when we say "May peace be with you" we are saying: “May the Light of the Crown Chakra, which captures the light of Kether, descends through your brain and through your all spinal column to all men / manas in the temple.”
Baphomet was a mysterious Kabbalistic symbol that was used by the Templars, and the ignorant people thought they were worshiping Satan, Lucifer.
Indeed, Baphomet is related with Lucifer, because here we are addressing the Cherubim, the Shedd, the sexual power of God. Solomon was carried aloft by the power of the Shedd. In Latin, Lucifer means "Light Bearer" (luce-fer), the bearer of the light, and that is precisely the cerebrospinal fluid that carries the light of the Father that we are talking about here. That carrier of light is Lucifer, that eventually, through the metabolism, will settle in the sexual organs, which is the other polarity of the sexual energy. The first polarity, the cerebrospinal fluid, is Adam, and the genitalia fluid is called Eve. Adam and Eve have many symbols, but in this lecture we are addressing the fluids; Eve is the sexual fluid that is called semen. In Alchemy semen refers to both the female and male fluid. So, Eve is the feminine sexual force that descends and becomes female or male sexual energy in Yesod.
In the Zohar , which is the book that contains the clue in order to understand the Book of Genesis and all the books of the Old Testament, including the Four Gospels of the New Testament, it states that the forces of the sephirah Geburah were the ones that descended into the physical world in order to tempt Eve. So when we are addressing Kether, as you see, we are addressing the light, the “Peace of the Father to all men in the temple.” Remember that we always state that the physical body is the Temple of God, the temple that is also called the Laboratory of the Alchemists. Our temple is the physical body where the energy of the Father descends and gives us strength through Lucifer, which is the giver of Light, which is synthesized in the Four Elements. So, each one of us has his own Lucifer. When we use the energy of Lucifer, the sexual energy, in the wrong way, that is, in order to feed our own animal appetites, then that Lucifer is transformed into Satan, the adversary. So the light of the Father could be transformed into Satan, all depends how we use the sexual energy. So when we address the sexual energy, understand, we are addressing the fire of Geburah, which descends from the left side of the Tree of Life. Binah, Iod-Havah Elohim, is on the very top of the left side of the Tree of Life; El Shaddai is in Yesod, the Kingdom of Iod-Havah Elohim.
Here we see the Tree of Life with symbols of the Cherubim of Ezekiel and also the serpent in the left to indicate that the serpent, according to the book of Zohar , relates to the left side of the Tree of Life. On top of the left column of the Tree of Life we find the Sephirah Binah, which is the Holy Spirit. The Sephirah Binah, the Holy Spirit, rules from Yesod, the third world which is called Yetzirah. So underneath Binah we find Geburah, justice, which is ruled by סמאל Samael. The book of Zohar addresses Samael many times. Our Patriarch, the founder of this Gnostic Movement in this day and age is named Samael Aun Weor; he is the Dhyani bodhisattva of that genie of Geburah. און ואור ‘Aun Weor,’ is the strength and light of Samael, is also the light of the sexual force of everybody, because ‘Aun Weor,’ is the sexual force and light of the Logos of Mars, is a cosmic force that relates to all human beings, even beasts, plants, minerals, life. Thus, when the book of Zohar addresses Adam, it does it in relation with Geburah, and this is because in the world of Atziluth, Geburah receives the name of Elohim Gibor. Gibor, in Hebrew means man, male force, virility. So, when we are addressing Geburah, Samael, Gibor alchemically, we are addressing the cerebral, spinal nervous system, the head, Aries.
In astrology we find two zodiacal signs that are ruled by Samael, Mars. First is Aries, and Aries relates to the head. The second is Scorpio which is related with Yesod. So it is understandable through Kabbalah why Samael rules Yesod and Geburah, because it relates with the head and genitalia. It means that the force of Binah in Daath descends into Geburah down to Yesod, and descends in the way we are explaining here, which is the cerebrum spinal fluid, which is the positive aspect, the male aspect, which is Adam. That is why the head is called Heaven. And that is why Samael in Aries, in Geburah, is called Elohim Gibor, which means "the male power of God", which is a serpent. As you see, the form of the spinal column is a serpent going down. The male power of Geburah-Aries transforms itself into a female power in Yesod, which is Scorpio, the female power is called Eve. And that is why it is stated in the Zohar that when the when the division of sexes was performed by Jehovah Elohim, which is Binah in Yesod, then the male force of Samael descended riding a serpent, a winged serpent of light. And this serpentine fire of Samael seduced Eve in Yesod. If we do not understand all of this symbols and archetypes we will fall in the mistake as many Catholics Christians and many other denominations of Christianity that curse Lucifer, ignoring that Lucifer is the fire that carries the light of Christ. That is why we call it Christus-Lucifer, the fire that descends from Geburah down into Yesod in order to perform the creation of Worlds, Elohim, Beasts and Humans, the creation of Adam.
Those that dare to curse Lucifer pronounce themselves against the cosmic reflection of the Logos. They anathematize the living manifested God in matter and abhor the ever-incomprehensible Wisdom when rebelling against the contraries of light and darkness, against countenance, resemblance, similitude, sun and shadow, day and night, the law of the contraries... The devil, the reflection of our interior Logoi, was the most sublime creature before we fell into animal generation. All of the Masters of the Hermetic Art repeat unto us: “Whitewash the brass and burn your books.”- Samael Aun Weor
Behold here a big difference between Gibor and Adam. Gibor is the male force that accordance with the Book of Genesis and the Zohar is that male force that was fighting with Jacob, or Jacob was fighting with Elohim and he won that fight. But that fight is internal. Jacob is the human soul trying to conquer the force of Samael within. So, as you see here, in all this symbols, we are addressing these mysterious forces of Baphomet, which relate to the left side of the Tree of Life. And the symbol of the left side of the Tree of Life on top, Binah, is Saturn. Saturn is controlling two zodiacal signs: Capricorn and Aquarius. Capricorn, of course, is a symbol of the goat, and that is why Baphomet has the face of a goat, or the head of a goat, which is the symbol of the power of God descending from Binah down, in the sexual energy. Behold there the two polarities that in Sanskrit are called Ida and Pingala in our own physicality. So therefore, Geburah is underneath Binah, which in Zohar is called the Power of the Serpent ruled by Samael, and beneath Samael-Geburah we find Hod, which is related with the forces of the moon, and Yesod in which we find that head in the Tree of Life, which is the head of the Cherubim, with horns, because that is the power that you have to conquer, the animal power. That is why Moses is represented in Yesod, being born from the waters.
By studying the four creatures and the four elements, then we understand the fifth one, which is the serpent. Is a beautiful symbol, very well hidden, and people are always afraid of the serpent. But I am going to explain to you, in relation with your physicality, what is that famous serpent.
To begin, let us continue with this symbol [like I am following my brain, my mind]. Is telling me now that I have to explain to you that in your head, in the world of Yetzirah, World of Formation, the very top, Kether is called Chaiot ha Kadosh, related to the four animals. In the Invocation of Solomon we say: "Chaiot ha Kadosh, cry" - the eagle - ", speak" - the man -", roar" - the lion-", bellow" -the ox or the bull. And then, after that, the Invocation say: "Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh", which means holy.
Chaioth Ha Kadosh relates to the four animals in Kether, the crown of Yetzirah, and Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh is also addressing the crown, top of the head and the left brain and the right brain, or the two hemispheres of the brain, in other words the upper triangle of the Tree of Life. In the Zohar it states, or better said, the Book of Ezekiel states that when that Cherubim appears in front of him he saw four faces:
"As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies." – Ezekiel 1: 10, 11
When we know Alchemy then it is easy to understand. The lion relates to the sense of sight, the bull to the sense of hearing, the eagle to the sense of smell and the mouth, Adam, to the sense of speech or taste. That is why it is written: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shall not eat of it” – Genesis 2: 17 because Adam is related with taste, the mouth, and also the speech, the word.
So when we are addressing the four creatures of Ezekiel we are addressing the four senses in our head, Adam. Then you might ask: and where is the fifth sense, the sense of touch? When you read Genesis, it is stated that Eve said to the serpent:
"But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said, Ye [Adam and Eve] shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." - Genesis 3: 3
Just by saying “neither shall ye touch it” we see that the serpent is related with the sense of touch, which is the fifth sense. Skin for skin, the sense of touch is the one that put us in trouble and we are going to explain here how. Remember that we are addressing that the Cherubim is related with the four senses in the head, that is why the Book of Ezekiel says that each face has the other faces, because each sense is always related with the other senses. If you address the sight, when you are addressing the eyes of any person you can not avoid seeing his nose, mouth and ears. And if you see the ears, which is the bull of that person you cannot avoid seeing the eyes, the nose and the mouth, likewise with the other senses. This is how you easily understand the Cherubim. And it is because the physical body receives the light, or the forces of the superior worlds through the senses. Light, sound, smell, taste, from all the senses is how the physical body feeds itself with. Thus, this is how we have to understand that in the lower level we are that Cherub but we have to know how to take advantage of that in order to transform the energy, the light of Peace, of Kether, the Crown, when we are in the temple. That is why we wrote: "Peace of the Father to all men in the temple". If you are in the temple with the Consciousness, with your mind awakened, then that peace, that light is transformed inside of you, positively. But if you are not in the temple, if you are reading this lecture and you are asleep, if your mind is in another place, thinking that tomorrow you had to go and do something else because is it will be a nice sunny day, then you are not listening to the lecture. Maybe you are physically here but your Consciousness is not in your temple.
"And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves." – Matthew 21: 13
Sequentially, to be in the temple alchemically speaking means to be in control of your physical energy in control of your Eve, given that Malkuth, the physical body, is feminine. Before Eve was taken from Adam, Adam was androgynous, hermaphrodite, within the forth dimension, within Yesod. This is why we see in the lower triangle of the Tree of Life the face of Adam as an androgynous being, having the power of his sex in his horns; yet the graphic of the serpent, which is in the left is touching Malkuth and even Klipoth, hell, in order to point that the physicality that we have is a fallen Sephirah and we are, indeed, through sex in touch with hell, with Sheol, with Klipoth, through the serpent Ida, because the other Ezekiel creatures are related with the head, with Adam. All depends how you handle the serpent, because remember that Eve, the genitalia, is related with the serpent, thus, when Eve utilizes the sexual energy in the wrong way, she infects Adam, the brain, through the cerebral spinal nervous system, thus, Adam becomes polluted because of the action of Eve, the sexual energy.
Now, "Peace of the Father to all men in the temple.” was a phrase addressed to the initiates, the Templars in order for them to understand that when they are in the temple with the energy of the Father they have to hold their Peace because if they do not know how to hold their peace they are kicked out of the Temple. So, how do you keep the peace in the temple? Well, most of the Templars were men. That is why it says "to all men", but the temple is the woman because the Temple of God is the physical body, Malkuth, within its womb as in the womb of the woman, the power of the Holy Spirit forms the creatures; many state that all religions are phallic, and is true, because all religions are formed from the light of Kether that descends through the cerebral spinal fluid. But that fluid can do nothing without the sexual fluid, which is feminine, the genitalia fluid. In other words a male cannot engender a son if he does not find a womb-man, a woman, who will receive his seed. The same way is in religion. Religion exists because the strength of the Father, which is masculine, finds the Temple, which is feminine. That is why in all religions there are temples, churches, synagogues, mosques, any building, any religious group, is a symbol of the female aspect of God, because God has to descend in the female forces in order to spread his seed and that is why when a male Templar wants to go inside of the temple he understands that the temple is his wife, because the womb of his wife is a church, is a mosque, is a synagogue, is a Lumisial. God’s sexual feminine force is called Zain, the seventh letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the seventh day, Malkuth. That is why the woman rules home. It is said that the man is the master of the house, but because the woman allows him to be, because the real master of the house is the woman, and here is not necessary to give a big explanation about it, because any true religion agrees with it. Listen, when the man, a true initiate, wants to be in the temple, when a man wants to be a true man, he has to have a wife, because here we are talking about the energy of the Holy Spirit, the energy of Binah, Iod-Havah Elohim, which is life, Chaiah, Chaioth Ha Kadosh in the body. Thus, if we want to work with that fire we have to work with the two polarities: the cerebrum spinal fluid and the sexual fluid, the two polarities of the sexual energy in the sexual act.
The man is the one who has to enter in the temple-the woman; this is why Baphomet has the symbol of the caduceus of Mercury, as an erected male phallus. The Caduceus represents the male potency, because if the man is not erected, if his phallus is not tempered, he can not enter into the woman, he can not enter into the temple. Thus, the only way to enter into the temple of God, which edifies the mind and light the splendour of an eternal youth, is when the man’s phallus is erected and the woman, which is the symbol of the Divine Mother, the female aspect of God, receives him. Thus, the meaning of: "Peace of the Father to all men in the temple" relates to the symbol of the Lingam-Yoni, Chastity.
Many ignoramuses take the symbol of Baphomet and play with it, though they ignore its profound significance, thus they make a mess of it. In this day and age you see in many websites in the Internet many individuals that utilize the symbol of Baphomet in order to scare the ignoramuses who ignore that the goat, besides having the right side up pentagram on its forehead, is making the symbol of the positive pentagram in each hand, which means, how to work with the moons, namely, one moon below and one moon above. The forces of the moon are the forces of the woman, which in the Zohar is explained in different ways, as we are explaining here. Your own woman is your physicality but if you are male you will need a woman, a female force, in order to enter into the temple and to receive the peace of the Father, and this is why Baphomet is the mystery that the Templars hide to all of those who enter into their temple; the ones who entered were receiving the doctrine of Chastity. There was a great initiate that the Master Samael Aun Weor knew in South America whose name was Dr. Arnold Krumm-Heller, a great physician, doctor from the University of Berlin. His inner name was Huiracocha, he knew the mystery of Baphomet. Master Samael Aun Weor mentioned Huiracocha in his book The Perfect Matrimony and he said:
“Instead of the coitus which reaches the orgasm, sweet caresses, amorous phrases and delicate touching should be lavished reflectively, keeping the mind constantly separated from animal sexuality, sustaining the purest spirituality as if the act were a true religious ceremony. Nevertheless, the man can and should introduce the penis and keep it inside the feminine sex to bring about a divine sensation upon both, full of joy, that can last for hours, withdrawing it at the moment the orgasm is near to avoid the ejaculation of semen ... The transmission of magnetic fluids is ordinarily done through the hands or through the eyes, but it is necessary to say that there is no greater and more powerful conductor, a thousand times more powerful, a thousand times superior to others, than the virile member and the vulva as receptive organs."
This is what Master Huiracocha said about Sexual Magic. He, in other words was disclosing the power of Baphomet but many people did not understand, even though he was all so clear. In order to enter in to the mysteries only Baphomet can give you that peace because you had to work with the sexual forces of God in the very sexual act, not as the ordinary people do but as a Templar.
Let us now study the symbol of the Tetragrammaton which is a word written precisely around the Pentagram, which is the symbol that also explains what we are addressing here, given that the Tetragrammaton also relates to the four element; we also find in the very center of this symbol, the Caduceus of Mercury, which in the Baphomet is the phallus, in other words, the Caduceus of Mercury, is exactly pointing the sexual force, it is above the upside down letter Ω Omega of the Greek alphabet.
Alpha is above and Ω Omega is below. You know that Alpha is the same letter א Aleph, the very first letter in Kabbalah that symbolizes the Holy Trinity that we already explained. Underneath that “A” we find the Hebrew word אדם הוה Adam-Havah. We are showing this Eliphas Levi’s pentagram because it is the first printed pentagram that publicly appeared, maybe there is another one that I do not know, but this is the first one that Eliphas Levi showed in his book in the eighteen century. The printed one was taken and photocopied many times; thus, you find that sometimes the letter ם Mem at the end of the word Adam looks blurred, different. This which we show has the letter Mem in the way that Eliphas Levy showed it. This is why some other people, instead of אדם Adam they write the word אדני Adonai, which is wrong. The word אדני Adonai means Lord and is the name of God in Malkuth, a symbol of Adonia, the feminine physical divinity. But the Tetragrammaton, or the Star of Five Points, the Pentagram, it is stated very clear, is the symbol of the Perfect Man, the self-realized Adam. And that self-realized man in Kabbalah is not Adonai, is אדם Adam. Because in Kabbalah we see many names, as I said, Gibor means male and man as well, Ish also means male, human been is Enoch. But Adam represents the Perfect Man because it is written:
“And Elohim said, Let us make Adam in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So Elohim created Adam in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male [Adam] and female [Eve] created he them.” – Genesis 1: 26, 27.
Thus, it does not say that Elohim created Adonai.
This is why Eliphas Levi represents the word Adam as the word Iod, the male aspect, because the head is that spot which is the Iod and in which we find the Holy Trinity which is above represented in the letter Aleph in the head of the pentagram. So in the right, which symbolizes the “Iod” or cerebral spinal fluid, is Adam, the sun. And in the left, as we are explaining here, is Havah - Eve, the Moon. That is why Eliphas Levi wrote Adam-Havah, which means Adam and Eve who are Iod-Havah, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, the Tetragrammaton, and this is precisely what we Kabbalistically read on the arms of this pentagram. We also find the symbol of Mars in each hand. And why is the symbol of Mars related with Adam-Havah? Because the right hand [Iod] represents Adam, the cerebral spinal fluid, the male, Geburah, the Sun; and the left hand [Iod] represents Eve, the genitalia fluid, the feminine force of Geburah that descends to the sexual organs which is Havah, Yesod, the Moon. This is why many ask: did Eliphas Levy forget to write the letter Iod on his pentagram? Maybe he missed it because “Iod” is just a little spot? No, he did not! The Iod is represented in Adam because this pentagram represents the androgynous, the perfect androgynous being, Adam into the image of God, male-female, Sun and Moon, Sol-Moon, SoloMoon, Solomon, the Soliman, solar man; thus, the right is Adam and the left is Eve, Adam-Havah, simple as that.
"One night, while in the Astral body, we invoked Bael. Bael was a tenebrous king who lived in a cavern in the Gobi dessert. There he instructed his disciples. He taught the black magic of the sublunar spheres [Klipoth]. Adonai, the Son of Light and Happiness, is his opposite [Malkuth]. These two antitheses of philosophy are intimately related with the two rays of the Moon." – Samael Aun Weor
So, teaching that the word written on the right arm of the pentagram means Adonai is a big mistake. Adonai is the name of God in Malkuth, indeed, it means Lord and is feminine, but it does not correlate to the symbol of Adam but of Eve, which is Havah, the Moon, which in Malkuth represents the famous Tetragrammaton.
The Tetragrammaton also shows us the four elements: the cup is the water, the staff is the air, the sword is the fire and the earth is the square, symbol within the “O” of the word TON, and of course, the symbol of the two serpents is the fifth.
Understand that the Pentagram is the symbol of Samael, the logos of Mars, and that is why when we address Samael we are addressing the Pentagram but in a positive manner because any Logos is a Demiurge that can be used for animal purposes or for human purposes because the forces of creation, of Geburah, work in the animal kingdom, in the plant kingdom, in the mineral kingdom and in the human kingdom.
When we enter in the initiation then we learn how to utilize the animal forces of Baphomet or the holy animal forces of the Tree of Life, Chaioth Ha Kadosh.
"And יהוה אלהים - which is Binah, the Holy Spirit- caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and -while he slept- he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof." – Genesis 2: 21
The Book of Zohar states:
"It is written, 'And He formed Adam.' In these words is expressed the mystery of the formation of Adam from the right and left sides of the Sephirothic Tree of Life. Adam was composed of two natures, the animal or lower self [Malkuth] and the spiritual or higher self [Geburah], and this because the former is necessary to the development of the latter. It is [Malkuth] the lower nature of Adam that excites the female principle.”
Genesis does not only says ribs, it also says sides, one of his sides. Thus, when we go deeply into Kabbalah we know that the letter Vav is a symbol of Adam, the central column, and the letter Zain is the seventh letter. The difference between Vav and Zain is simple. When you make the letter Iod and stretch it down to the right then you make letter Vav. But the letter Zain is another Iod as well but is in not stretched down to the right but from the very center of the letter Iod; thus, that is the only difference between Vav and Zain. Both letters, when we joined them together, we form the shape of the letter Chet which means life, Chai; thus, Chet contains the two forces, it means that Chet, life, Chai is an androgynous force; the letter Chet is an androgynous letter. This is why the name of God in Yesod is Shaddai El Chai. Shaddah or Shaddai is translated in many parts of the Bible as the All Mighty God, El Shaddai or the Life of the All Mighty God, Shaddai El Chai.
But if you go into the dictionary and look for [שדי], you will find that it is related with phantoms, feminine breasts like the ones of Baphomet, the Shedd who was precisely the genie that Solomon submitted under his power; the Shed, Shin-Daleth [שד].
"According to legend, Solomon asked the Rabbis how he could build the Temple without using tools of iron, they called his attention to the Shem-ir with which Moses had engraved the names of the tribes on the breastplate of the high priest, and advised him to command the demons under his sway to obtain it for him. Solomon accordingly summoned Ashmedai, the prince of the Shedds." - Jewish Encyclopedia
Solomon put under his service [מדי-אש = enough fire] Ashmedai the fire of אל שדי El Sheddai by uttering the Holy Name. The Shedd is the power of Yesod, it is sex. That is why Shaddai is represented with horns, because he is a Cherub. Shaddai El Chai means the Holy Spirit of the living God or the ghost, phantom of the living God.
Chai means living, and this is something very important to understand because Chet precisely is the letter of life, Chaim. Thus, when the Book of Genesis is addressing the ribs it is addressing the two polarities of life, Adam-Vav Eve-Zain; because we know that the physical body’s skeleton has many ribs not two. We have many ribs. But Kabbalistically when we are addressing the two ribs we are addressing the two sides of the letter Chet, the two polarities, male and female, that in the World of Formation, in Yetzirah, form the androgynous Adam.
"And Iod-Havah Elohim formed Adam from the dust of the Adamah…" - Genesis 2: 7
Iod-Havah Elohim formed Adam male-female, as it is written, ‘formed’ from the World of Formation, Yetzirah. Thus, this is precisely the main point when we delve into the origin of this physical world, we go into Yetzirah, into the past, into the superior dimensions.
When we talk about Adam and Eve or the androgynous Adam, the one who still has Eve inside of him, we are talking about two Root Races, namely, the Protoplasmic and the Hyperborean Root Races that finally crystallized into the forth dimension as the Lemurian Root Race which was hermaphrodite. So when we address the three previous Root Races, we said Hyperborean, Protoplasmic and Lemurian, those were Root Races of human beings that existed before the division of sexes. The first Root Race was black, that is why here in this graphic we show the black Adam and Eve, because really the very Root of the Races of the planet is black, after them came all the different skin tonalities, because at the time of the Protoplasmic Root Race the temperature of the planet was very hot and the people that existed, the protoplasmic people were dark blue color, this was the Adam Kadmon, the primeval androgynous man that existed in the past, in the superior dimensions. Listen, these human beings were the outcome of the work on Alchemy from previous Cosmic Days, they were fully developed and acting, assisting the creator, in order to help creation through their division of sexes.
"And Iod-Havah Elohim caused a deep sleep to fall upon [the hermaphrodite] Adam, and he slept: and he took [from the letter Chet, which is Chaim, life] one of his ribs [letters Zain and Vav], and closed up the flesh instead thereof." - Genesis 2: 21
What we read in the former quotation relates to the Lemurian continent, where the giant hermaphrodites were giving birth, the letter Zain, because the letter Zain is the seventh letter that represents Malkuth, the physicality. This means that those gigantic hermaphrodites were giving birth unisexual people; thus, instead of their letter Zain, that is, instead of one of their sexual polarities, or instead of one of their ribs as it is written Kabbalistically, symbolically. In other words, Iod-Havah Elohim, the Holy Spirit, through evolution was closing up the hermaphrodite flesh instead thereof, and developing whether a male or a female flesh instead the hermaphrodite flesh thereof. Thus, instead of two ribs, one rib and closing up the hermaphrodite flesh instead thereof. When you read Genesis 2: 21 literally you think, oh, he took one rib-bone out from Adam and put flesh instead the rib-bone and thereafter he closed the opening.
Listen, Kabbalistically, alchemically, as we understand this, the bone relates to Gedulah and the flesh to Geburah, they form the physicality that we have, that is bone and flesh. Our organs are flesh, the skin, Tiphereth, covers the flesh; the flesh, Geburah, in the male develops the phallus and in the female the vagina and their skin, Tiphereth, covers them or, better said, flesh and skin relates to the sense of touch.
By means of the division of sexes the sense of touch developed through the sexual organs in order to work with the forces of the elements. This is what we have to understand.
When the rib, which is represented in the letter Zain, is taken out from the hermaphrodite Adam, it is place in Malkuth, Eve, our physicality, such rib develops as the sexual organ, develops as a flesh instead thereof; thus our sexual organ is the flesh instead thereof.
In this day and age, in the Hebrew language they use the word Zain for the sexual organ. If you write Zain in Hebrew and search in Google, you will see that immediately images of the sexual organ appear. Thus, it is very clear, that Zain relates to the sexual organ. Zain, the flesh relates to the division of sexes and represents the serpent in each body. That is why when God is taking Zain, which is the female generative force of the hermaphrodite; he is taking from him that female generative force that is inside him, because the rib is inside the body. Thus, when that energy, when that polarity is taken out, then you find that that polarity expresses itself through the sexual organ because the division of sexes is the division of the hermaphrodite into male-female.
"Come, excelsior value! And give me the temperance and strength that is needed to penetrate her."
Thus, the serpent is the blood that circulates in the flesh and skin of both during the sexual act. This is the mystery of Baphomet.
"The rose elaborates its perfume with the clay of the earth -which is the physicality-. The slithering worm does not like the gardener who removes its clay. Our disciples will now comprehend on what basis do the tenebrous ones qualify the Sexual Alchemists as thieves…" - Igneous Rose by Samael Aun Weor
And the proof is this:
And they were both (ערומים) thievish Adam and his wife, and were not ashamed. – Genesis 2: 25
And they were both naked; we wrote thievish in Hebrew in parenthesis, which is the word that they use for naked. The Hebrew dictionary shows many meanings for that word, thus, one of the meanings is thievish. Thievery is precisely what an Alchemist, a Templar, the one that know the mystery of Baphomet does: he steals the sexual force from nature. And this is why we see in this Buddhist graphic how both, male and female have the face of a serpent, a thievish face. You have to know how to steal the energy from your own physicality because that physicality, that flesh is your own body. Genesis 2: 25 says that they were both thievish and were not ashamed; this is because they were stealing for their own spiritual development. Now the devotees of the path will understand why Christ said:
“The kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” - Matthew 11: 12
The Alchemist must steal the fire from the devil. When we work with the Arcanum A.Z.F. we steal fire from the devil and we convert ourselves into [Elohim] Gods. Thus, the five pointed star shines. – Samael Aun Weor
By stealing the fire from the devil is how we develop the forces of heaven within us; the forces of heaven descend into Malkuth, our physicality and we have to take them by the force of willpower, Thelema. This is not easy. The weak succumb in the sexual act. And that is the mystery of Baphomet.
The Alchemist as a thief must steal the fire from the devil, this is why the tenebrous, the fornicators from Klipoth accuse the alchemists of being thieves because we, when we transmute we are really thieves. We like to steal for God. Remember the Lord Christ crucified between two thieves. The right one is the one that is with the Lord, stealing for him, but he is not stealing money or dollars, like those vulgar thieves in this physical world, because that is stupid. Dismas, the good thief is stealing his own energy, his own force from his own physicality. The thief of the left is the "bad thief" his named is Gestas, he steals his own energy, his own force from his own physicality in order to satisfy his own bestiality. So, bad thieves are abundant, they always nourish their body; this is nourished with all types of energy, and thereafter what is what we do with it? We steal it for the ego, for our lust.
The division of sexes happened for a reason - the purpose is that we have to build the human being, the androgynous Adam within, inside the intellectual animal.
Now a question emerges. If the previous Root Races, namely, Protoplasmic, Hyperborean, Lemurian, were already formed by human beings. Why was then this complication necessary, that is, to create a planet, in order to create human beings when these were already created?
The answer is that not all the Monads created Adam. And remember that through the Law of Evolution, through the mineral kingdom, plant kingdom, animal kingdom, Chaioth ha Kadosh, the creatures are coming in evolution and they need to receive the opportunity to become human beings into the image of God. So therefore, in the scenario of Lemuria there were human beings from past cosmic days. Thus, when these hermaphrodite creatures, when these human beings were divided into two sexes, they were having unisexual children, in other words, they were giving human physicality to those Monads, to those souls that were coming from the animal kingdom. That physical inheritance, that gift was precious because the animals or souls from the animal kingdom were receiving human bodies that were already the outcome of Chastity, because the Lemurians were multiplying through Chastity, as humans and not like animals. So, the animals that were entering into those bodies were learning already by instinct how to transmute their sexual libido, they were also receiving the teachings from the Elohim.
But naturally, these animal souls also inherited their past animal instincts, because all animals are fornicators, yet now that they were entering into the human kingdom they had to learn through the alchemical way how not to fornicate. Thus, the Angels incarnated in Lemuria were guiding in them the light of Kether when they were in the temple. This is why it is written that the sexual act was performed in the temples, because to be in the temple means, to collect the light of the almighty God when the lingam is united with the yoni, since, through the sexual union is how Iod-Chavah Elohim creates Adam. The alchemical sexual union is peace of the father to all men inside the temple.
So whatever is the religion your are following, when you are in the temple you pray to God, but if you are not invoking God in the very sexual act, you are committing blasphemy, because when you are in the sexual act, according to the Zohar , you had to pronounce I. A. O., which is Iod-Hei-Vav, the Name of God. But how many people pronounce the Holy Name or do not even pronounce it, in the sexual act they forget God, they do not remember God. In the sexual act you have to remember God and if you want to synthesize the I A O then you pronounce SSSSSSSS because the “S” is a powerful mantra that synthesizes I A O, the sound of the “S” is the forces of the serpent, when you pronounce it you transmute the sexual force. This is the mystery of Baphomet that was thought by Moses through his Kabbalah in the entire Book of Genesis.
"And the serpent [the skin] became wiser than any receptacle beast genie (חית השדה) which Jehovah Elohim had made (in Eden), and said unto the woman: Is it true that Elohim hath said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" – Genesis 3: 1
"And out of Adamah made Iod-Havah Elohim to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden; and the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil." - Genesis 2: 9
The first tree that Iod-Havah Elohim created is “every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food”, the second is “the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden” and the third is “and the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil.”
What is the tree pleasant to the sight? The physical body is that tree which is pleasant to the sight. Yes, our physicality is a tree, it captures energy. Pleasant, in Hebrew is Nehamad; Nahemah is pleasant to the sight, and it is because when the division of sexes happened in Lemuria women were very attractive, as it is written in the Book of Genesis.
"And it came to pass, when [the Lemurian] Adam began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of Adam that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And Iod-Havah said, My [Ruach] spirit shall not always strive with Adam, for that he also is flesh [Nephesh – animal soul]..." - Genesis 6: 1-3
Fleshy, chemistry speaking, the beauty of the physical body is related to the sexual glands when the woman enter into puberty the skin, the forms of her physicality absorbs the hormones of her ovaries; likewise happens to the man, the hormones of his testicles are observed by his physicality, this is why a man is full of strong muscles, that strength comes from his testosterone, yet the woman is different, she has another type of flesh. The woman - if her hormones develop normally - likes the flesh which is pleasant to her sight, which will be a male body. Likewise for the male - if his hormones develop normally – he will like a female which is pleasant to his sight, and that is precisely the meaning of “tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food.”
Now, “the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden; and the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil,” are respectively, the spinal medulla, and the sexual organs divided already into two sexes, both trees are in the midst of their physicality or garden. But why is the serpent related with the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil?
In the latter graphic we see a woman, we could call her Lilith or we could call her Nahemah or Havah-Eve, because the woman represents precisely Malkuth, which is the Sephirah pointed as the perpetrator of the fall of humanity.
Listen here, when we are talking about the woman you have to understand and visualize that we are talking about the sexual energy or sexual fluid of Yesod in our physicality, and likewise Zain, the left side or the feminine sexual polarity. This is why the serpent is squeezing the woman’s physicality, the physical body. The serpent touches her skin.
When you touch a serpent, you find that it is a cold animal and in the former graphic we find how the serpent surrounded the physical body of that woman and it is because our woman is Malkuth, our own physicality and the serpent which is going around is the skin, the flesh that covers our body, because Buddhi, Geburah, Samael, rules Aries above and Scorpio below, our sexuality. Thus, our sexuality relates to the fifth sense, the sense of touch.
As Master Huiracocha stated: “The transmission of magnetic fluids is ordinarily done through the hands or through the eyes, but it is necessary to say that there is no greater and more powerful conductor, a thousand times more powerful, a thousand times superior to others, than the virile member and the vulva as receptive organs.”
This is why we Kabbalistically relate the letter Iod to the phallus and clitoris, moreover, ‘Iod’ means hand in Hebrew , and therefore related to the sense of touch. When a man embraces a woman, then male and female arouse their sexual force because both hands, skins are touching, their flesh is touching; in other words, the two serpents of the Caduceus of Mercury are touching each other. Sex, skin and hands related to the sense of touch. Thus, everything, bones and flesh, all of that enter in mutual relation. This is precisely how the serpent tempted Eve, the sexual organ, because when the energy of the blood in the flesh is aroused then the man receives erection, the woman humidity and they end performing the sexual act, because Zain the most sensitive organ of the flesh is aroused. As the Book of Genesis states, “he took [Zain] one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof.” That flesh is the physicality, the physical body, and that flesh is also the sexual organ. When man and woman make contact in the sexual act, that is the flesh of the serpent or as Giovanni Boccaccio, this great Italian alchemist poet from the Renaissance said in Decameron, the phallus is the devil and the vagina is hell. Thus, when the devil is in hell you then experience temptation. Do you want to defeat temptation? Listen, temptation is fire and triumph over temptation is light. But which man defeats temptation when his devil is in hell? Everyman wants to go down into hell with his devil, thus this how humanity is. This, humanity likes to be in hell with the devil.
When the neophytes entered in the temple of the Templars and acknowledge therefore that the force of the devil is Lucifer Baphomet, they were then taught by the Masters how to wisely utilize their sexual energy.
Thus, the serpent was wiser than any receptacle or sense which Jehovah Elohim had made in the body. This means that Chaioth ha Kadosh, the other sacred beasts or senses of your face that we are talking about, namely, the sight perceives energy, impressions of the light, likewise the ears perceives impressions, the nose perceives impression, the taste when we eat any type of food and our body is nourished with it; but the most sensitive organ that receives light, especially in the sexual act is the flesh, the skin.
"And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin [עור aur] of his face shone [like the brazen serpent]; and they were afraid to come nigh him...." "therefore Moses put the veil upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him [Iod-Havah]." – Exodus 34: 30, 35
So, the skin is the serpent, physically speaking, because inside of us - alchemically speaking - the serpent relates to different symbols.
Now you understand when in the ancient times the Lemurians were performing the sexual act in the temples they were warned against the serpent. But one day they performed the sexual act out of the temples and they were victims of the serpent, of their own skin. They were aroused without the help of God, given that they did not invoke God, their Gods were out of their temples, there was only Lucifer with them, and this is how they fell into animal generation. This is how they left Eden. So do not be afraid of the serpent because this symbolizes all of the skin of your body, since if you take all your skin, then you will say "Ok, now I do not have any serpent", you will be then only muscles, so comprehend what the serpent is.
"Is it true that Elohim hath said, you shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the Woman said unto the Serpent. We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the (Azoth) fruit of the tree (the genitalia) which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said: Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." - Genesis 3: 2, 3
The fruit of our genitalia is precisely the feminine aspect of God, it is the feminine force of Elohim, such is the forbidden fruit, which is in our sexual organs, because the masculine force is in the cerebral spinal fluid and the other is the genitalia fluid, our sex. Thus, Elohim said:
“But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” – Genesis 2: 17
Yet, “The serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die.” Genesis 3: 4
According to Zohar the serpent said to the woman - the genitalia fluid:
“Behold I have touched this tree [sex], yet I have not died. You too can come closer and touch it with your hand [Iod - genitalia] - and you shall not die. The serpent added this on his own [given that the prohibition is not to touch it but to eat it].
And this is precisely the mystery. When we are in the sexual act we are touching the Tree of Good and Evil. Thus, remember the Commandment: “the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die”. Thus, the clue is to invoke God in those voluptuous moments. When the man is penetrating the woman or when the woman is receiving the man, both in their heads must remember God the Holy Ghost because the sexual act is God’s feminine power. But if you forget God, the Holy Ghost, you touch the tree and eat the fruit and that is precisely the problem. You can touch it, but do not eat it, because by touching it is how you transform the energy and feed your spirit, your soul; but if you eat it then you create images, idols, inside of you, false Elohim and then you become an idolatrous, a blasphemous.
"Wherefore I say unto you, all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in [Atziluth] the world to come. Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit." – Matthew 12: 31-33
"Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of Iod-Havah Elohim, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any [lustful] thing, which Iod-Havah Elohim hath forbidden thee. For Iod-Havah Elohim is a [sexual] consuming fire, even a jealous Elohim." – Deuteronomy 4: 23, 24
Thus, when you fornicate you make a graven lustful image and many other bestial egos inside of you; this is how you become idolatrous, even if you do not have statues in your home, even if you think that you worship only one God; moreover, if you are a fornicator, you are also a killer because you are killing Shaddai El Chaiah, the life of the almighty God, or as we say in esotericism: any bodhisattva that falls into animal generation is accuse of having killed the God Mercury, or Azoth, Mercurius Deus which is the sexual energy. So any fallen bodhisattva is a killer. "You shall not kill" Read the last article [in the website] that refers to what you do or what are you performing when you are in Fornication. The Zohar explains the difference. Likewise, you are thief, a bad thief. The good thief, as you see relates to intelligent alchemical procedures because Adam end Eve were thievish, they were not ashamed. But when you are stealing for the devil, after the orgasm of the animals, after Fornication you feel ashamed,.
"And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil." - Genesis 3: 4
But when you eat it as Elohim does, or when you eat with God, together with God, then you eat it and then your eyes are open and knowing good and evil as Elohim. Yet, is written that Adam and Eve, or better said, Eve, the genitalia tasted the fruit, which was the orgasm, and give it to the brain, Adam, and thereafter both of them knew that they were completely naked, without energy, without the force of the Holy Ghost.
Let us read Numbers 21: 8, 9, to study what Iod-Havah said to Moses:
"And יהוה said unto Moses (Adam) [remember that in the previous lecture we associated Adam with Israel and with Moses, so when we are addressing Moses we are addressing Adam or the initiate who is following the path] Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole (spinal medulla): and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten [-by a serpent-], when he looketh upon it, shall live."
Obviously, the one that is bitten by the tempting serpent is the one that succumbed to Fornication, the one that reached the orgasm is bitten by a serpent; but if you worship the serpent of brass, which is the symbol of the duality of the Divine Mother within, then you shall live.
"And (Adam) Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man [remember that the male is the mind, the cerebral spinal fluid; if you receive that poison in your mind, what you have to do is the opposite in order to be cured], when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived." - Numbers 21: 8, 9
Remember that the eyes are the lion, to see the light, to see the serpent, is to close your eyes and to invoke the feminine aspect of God, which is the serpent of brass, the divine serpent Kundalini, in Sanskrit. And this is precisely what Moses was doing by the command of God.
So we have two serpents here. The first is the tempting serpent and the other is the serpent that gives life, which is the Kundalini. Humanity is following, the tempting serpent because in the sexual embrace, when the flesh is receiving that magnetism [in] male-female they enter into the temple, but to fornicate, that is precisely to filth the tabernacle of God. When you enter into any temple physically, here, to pray, you put your simple thoughts out and you kneel and pray to God. Same thing you must do when you enter in the temple of God which is the living temple, the woman. And when the woman receives the man, is receiving the positive force of God so, then, she must be like in a temple a religious ceremony - religious, religare, to unite. That means to be religious, to unite the positive forces and the negative forces inside your body when you are in the sexual act. That is to be religious.
But if do not do that and call yourself a religious person you are just lying to yourself, and thou shall not lie.
Let us go deeper into this mystery of Baphomet, and into what was explained in lecture Azoth. You find this word, הזאת Azoth, written with Hei-Zain-Aleph-Tav in the Chapter 21 of Genesis verse 10 and 11, which is directly related with Abraham, remember Abraham is Chesed, our own particular Innermost that has to do the work inside, that force that descends from the cerebral spinal fluid, that is Abraham, the Father. That is why it is written that through Abraham’s seed religion [sexual union] will be received and also that through religion the seed of Abraham will be multiplied.
Now, Abraham had two children, mentioned in the Bible. Ishmael and Isaac, Ishmael means God listen. When we are receiving this doctrine our inner God is listening, this is how we enter into the kingdom of Ishmael, because through sex the forces of Abraham descend into Malkuth and also create in the physical world. But it is written:
"And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this (הזאת = Azoth) bondwoman and her son: for the son of this ( הזאת = Azoth) bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac." - Genesis 21: 10, 11
Let us examine, Sarah was sterile yet she already had Isaac, but Ishmael was mocking. Now, what is what Ishmael symbolizes? Ishmael symbolizes our physicality; when we enter into this path, Ishmael also represents our personality. We are receiving knowledge, we are receiving the doctrine, we go into religion, in temples, churches synagogues, mosques, whatever, and we are very religious people. That is Ishmael, because Ishmael is son of the Egyptian, Egypt is Kem, dark earth, as we were showing this is the physicality or Mizrahim as it is stated in the Bible. In other words, Hagar, the Egyptian symbolizes our own physicality or the physical world, because when we address Egypt we are addressing Malkuth; and behold it is precisely in Malkuth where there are many organizations, many groups, which represent Ishmael.
Thus, when we enter into initiation, that is, when we follow the path of Baphomet that we are explaining here, which is the path of transmutation, then our inner Divine Mother inside of us give birth Isaac which is the child of the promise, in other words, child of Chastity. Remember that in the physical world Abraham also had Ishmael. In other words, to synthesize for you to understand, the physical body and personality that we initiates use is Ishmael. Yet, Isaac is inside of us, Isaac is Geburah, the child of Chastity, who is born of our Divine Mother. Yet, Abraham, which is Chesed, is the father of both. Do you understand this? Isaac is inside and Ishmael is physically out here, in this physical world, which is Egypt. Listen, Ishmael is mingled with Klipoth because below Malkuth is hell, Sheol and, this is why Ishmael is mocking because all of us have ego. Thus, this is what is commonly happening in this physical world, the physical person, whatever his personality’s name is, whatever his nationality, is starting mocking holy things, spiritual things, or boasting about them: i.e. "Oh, I am the Master such and such...", "My inner God is that, the Prophet this...", "In past lives I was this and that...", you know, mocking.
“Wherefore, Sarah - the Divine Mother - says onto Abraham - who is the Innermost, who is the one that can give you light or take the light from you, physically speaking: “Cast out this (הזאת = Azoth) bondwoman and her son: for the son of this ( הזאת = Azoth) bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.” - Genesis 21: 10, 11. The bondwoman and her son, represents our physicality and personality respectively, both are the outcome of Azoth, the sexual energy - as we learned from the lecture Azoth.
Master Samael always warned in his books: Do not talk about your initiations! Do not talk about your spirituality or your spiritual development! because when you start talking about holy things, you as Ishmael end mocking or being mocked. Thus, your inner God, Abraham, Chesed, cut the light from you and then you enter into darkness and you say "Why, I was receiving a lot of light, and all of a sudden I am not receive light?". It is because Sarah says to Abraham: "I prefer you give all that light to my son Isaac inside - which is Geburah - than to this mocking individual in the physical world. Understand they are the same individual; the two of them are one. Thus, when you know the difference between Ishmael and Isaac, you start shutting your mouth up and say "I, Ishmael, want to receive the light, want to receive knowledge in order to help humanity but I have to understand that the one that receives the doctrine and powers, the initiations is Isaac, Geburah up there in heaven, not me, not this personality. Otherwise, you start accusing others in the wrong way and you fall into disparage, mocking as Ishmael, which is precisely the problem for many Gnostics in this day and age. They start mocking other Gnostics , thus, presently there is a lot of mockery everywhere. So, when that happens, your inner God, Abraham, Chesed, cuts the light to you, he says “Now the light only for Isaac in the Internal Worlds and if you, Ishmael, want light you have to fight for it.”
Nevertheless, there are other Ishmaels that teach the Gnostic or Daath doctrine of the Kabbalah, and they are many because is written that the children of the bondwoman are millions, thousands. But Isaacs, the children of the free woman, meaning, those that develop inside, are very few. And we know that. We find many Gnostic groups in this day and age that teach the doctrine of the Master Samael, which is the doctrine of the serpent; as you can see his books can give you a lot of wisdom. But if you do not practice it, you remain as Ishmael knowing that you can develop powers.
I remember in this very moment when I was invited to a reunion of certain group of Gnostics , in that reunion they told me, "Come join to us, look we are many, we are many." Not only this group has a lot, there are other groups that have a lot and more members, but that is not the main point here. Why should we want to be with you, just because you are many? Ishmael. Where - in your group - are the children of the free? Isaac. The children of the free are quiet, they do not boast about anything. So, just because you are many we should belong to your organization?" I said No, thank you. Maybe in our group there will be also many Ishmaels, but who are the ones that will be serious in this? Because we always find that Ishmael persecute Isaac and those envious people that do not do anything are abundant yet they are slaves of Baphomet, so, given that they do not control the forces of Baphomet, they start expend their time accusing others.
In this day and age the weak accuse Gnostic Alchemists of being thieves. So, when we read, such a fellow is a thief, a plagiarist. We say, yes, it is true. We do not deny that. Since I too am a plagiarist, a thief, but a good one because I am working for my God, and that way we understand. But there are others that are not working and they are getting mad and say "The Alchemists are not thieves" but Genesis 2: 25 says: “And they were both thievish, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
This is why Master Samael said very clear, “the tenebrous ones qualify the Sexual Alchemists as thieves…” because as Adam and Eve they are thieves, yet they are not ashamed. So when you understand the doctrine you do not feel ashamed; but shame on you, fornicators.
Understand very well the Azoth, since it is precisely the female aspect of the sexual force of the serpent in you; that is the Azoth. The Azoth is the force of the woman, the female energy of God; that is the Azoth. So, as Ishmael, you can multiply here and make a lot of disciples:
"And Elohim heard the voice of the lad [Ishmael]; and Meleck Elohim called Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, what art thou doing, Hagar? Fear not; for Elohim hath heard the voice of the lad [Ishmael] where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation." – Genesis 21: 17, 18
Many religions form that great nation. We find many millions of Catholics, millions of Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, etc., all of them are Ishmael; they are a lot. But to find one Isaac among them is very rare.
Paul of Tarsus, the Master Hilarion says very clear that Hagar symbolizes Egypt, Arabia, Malkuth, as we are explaining here, he says Sarah and Hagar represent two women, two covenants or two ways in which we receive the doctrine. Here, the way that you are learning now you are being Ishmael, you are receiving the doctrine of Hagar. As Ishmael, you are multiplying and being many. But if you want to receive directly into your Consciousness the Kabbalah, to receive the light directly from your God, then you have to create Isaac within.
"My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you. Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bond maid, the other by a free woman But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the free woman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which genders to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answers to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bears not; break forth and cry, thou that travails not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband. Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free." - Galatians 4: 19-31
So, Paul of Tarsus, the Master Hilarion explains very clear that there are two covenants. The one that develops in this physical world and that is preoccupy on making a lot of disciples, devotees, in order to preach the light to them. That is good. But if their disciples do not practice what is preached to them, if they do not defeat the temptation of the serpent of their own flesh they just remain the same; as in this day and age, a lot of people claim to be Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, but they have nothing inside. In English they are call: “wannabes;” given that they just say “Oh I just wanna be! and do nothing for it: Well, indeed, in order to be really we have to grow inside, to practice, in order to become like Isaac, the son of the promise, and this promise is Chastity. This promise is to defeat temptation as Master Samael and Huiracocha said. Remember, the temptation is stronger when the man and the woman are in the sexual act, there is where we feel the fire of the devil, the fire of Lucifer and there is where the temptation is, that is, the serpent tempting you through your own flesh and skin of your sexual organ, the most sensitive organ of the sense of touch. So, in that moment you have to defeat the devil. If you do not defeat the devil you are then a victim and you are kicked out of Eden. Do you want to return to Eden? Well, then defeat temptation and make light within your darkness and enter in. Thus, this is precisely the instructions that the Lemurians or Adam and Eve were receiving at that time in the temples. But they were victims of Lucifer, their own flesh, and they fell into animal generation.
As you know, some of those gigantic degenerated Lemurians were having sex with animals because through Fornication they fortified their animality within, and this is something that we must understand. The Lemurians that had sexual relations with animals were not the authentic human beings, but the degenerated animal souls that were receiving human bodies in order for them to have the opportunity to become humans inside. But they failed and they multiplied like animals because they were animals within; thus, they created all those apes; this is very well explained in the book Gnostic Anthropology by the Master Samael.
True Human Beings lived during the epoch of the reptiles. Unfortunately, some of these authentic Human Beings degenerated terribly at the end of the Tertiary Epoch, during the Miocene. They absurdly mixed themselves with some beasts of Nature as we have already stated in previous chapters. Several gigantic simians were the outcome of such a mixture; such species in turn, mixed themselves with other subhuman beasts. Thus, the outcomes of all of this were the simians that we know of and the evolution of certain humanoids. These humanoids continued reproducing themselves incessantly during the Quaternary Epoch. Subsequently, they continued reproducing themselves incessantly and they are the humanoids of this epoch in which we live. This present humanity is a [psychosomatic] mixture of authentic Human Beings with animals of Nature...
Questions and Answers
Audience: ...So, to work with the devil, Lucifer, is the same as working with Azoth, the same of working with the two moons. But when is coming at working with the serpent which is touch, most transmutation will be [mostly] through touch so, if you are in the sexual act but you do not approach the orgasm, meaning you are just transmuting the energy that is not [...] through orgasm, you avoid it, [is] the same amount of energy as you did not [...]?
Instructor: This is a very long question. Let me tell you one thing. The question is related with the transmutation of the sexual energy when you are being tempted by Lucifer, and Lucifer is Light and Fire who does temptation through the serpent. Who is the tempting serpent? The tempting serpent is your flesh, is your skin; that is your serpent. When you are in the sexual act you are a victim when you do not defeat temptation. If you want to defeat temptation read the article "Good and Evil" in the website, there, the rabbis of the Zohar explain very well what you have to follow. For instance:
From tradition we learn:
- The word צו tzav ["commanded"] denotes idolatry in general [since from Fornication, egotistical images of Elohim originate]
- The name יהוה Jehovah refers to blaspheming the holy name [through denial of יהוה when in the sexual act].
- The name אלהים Elohim indicates forgetting God [in the struggle of maintaining righteousness].
- 'The man' אדם refers to the crime of murder [for the one who fornicates cuts physical life that descends from גבר Gibor "male," the Sephirah Geburah on the left side of the tree; murder through Fornication is the most cursed of all sins; murder falls into many different aspects, these are not the same and are under the domination of Samael / Geburah, who is from the side of the serpent]
- 'saying' אמר to Adultery [as the Tree of Knowledge is זו zuw, who, the female principle of Elohim]
- 'of every tree of the garden' to thievery
- ‘mayest freely eat' to the prohibition from ejaculating the living manna [semen].
Not to fall into idolatry means that in the very sexual act your mind has to be clean, only concentrated in God. But if you are in the sexual act and you are thinking lustful things, obviously, you are worshiping an idol, you are an idolatrous and you will fall a victim of it. This is why you have to follow your inner God.
"The key of sexual dominion resides in the mind. The mind is dominated by means of willpower [Moses]. We must flagellate the mind with the terrific whip of willpower when restraining passionate excitement, because the den of desire resides in the mind. We must speak to the mind as this, “Mind, take this sexual excitement away from me immediately.” This formula permits us to take away the intense passion in the precise moment of the restraint of the act." - Samael Aun Weor
I repeat, study that article of Zohar in it you will find different steps, because you have to invoke Jehovah, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, in the sexual act. Because you should pronounce the name Jehovah in it, because Jehovah is the one that perform such transformation. And Jehovah is synthesized in I A O or the letter Ssssssss pronounced in the sexual act; this means that you have to pronounce the name of God in the sexual act. You do not have to pronounce the name of God in vain, but in the sexual act that is not in vain because "Help me God", if you forget God, you fall; likewise, when you are working with the annihilation of your ego, in order to become righteous. In order to be a righteous person you have to work with Elohim, And I repeat, study that article from the Zohar in order to understand how to perform the sexual act. The article is called "Good end Evil" by Simeon ben Jochai.
Audience: So the serpent relates to the sense of touch. So the better that it feels, even when you are following the rules and you are praying to God, there is more transmutation ... ?
Instructor: Obviously, we find - in the sexual act - many temperaments and many levels and is obvious that the sexual act is always pleasurable, it is always pleasant. The serpent gives glory and light, that is precisely the point here. People are damning, cursing the serpent, yet, without the serpent you cannot have light because the serpent, the skin, the flesh, or that receptacle which is the skin, carries the energy, a lot of energy that grants the sexual strength to the man and to the woman. Obviously there is always pleasure in the sexual act, this is why the Genetic commandment states:
"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." - Genesis 2: 17
This is the most difficult commandment because not to eat means to perform the sexual act and to transmute the sexual energy, whereas to eat means to reach the orgasm, the spasm of the animals; so, in this planet Earth everybody is eating, having a feast of the apple tree. Present humanity follow Lilith and Nahemah. Thus, you have to be careful because in the sexual act you have to be careful ..., if you want to learn you have to start little by little. Do not start like a great Master of Tantra that practice hours, as Master Huiracocha says, that we can endure many hours, but you are not a Master. He was a Master, Huiracocha. Master Samael says star for five minutes, fifteen minutes, as much as you can tolerate, in order to teach your body, because the serpent is wiser, is the wisest animal of all the Chaioth that were created by Jehovah Elohim, because Jehovah Elohim created the serpent, the skin, it is written:
"He took [the Zain זין] one of his sides, and deliver the flesh instead thereof." – Genesis 2: 21. "Unto Adam also and to his wife did Iod-Havah Elohim make fleshy coats, skins, and clothed them." – Genesis 3: 21.
Now that Zain [זין] is the flesh that we have here in Malkuth; now through Eve, our skin, we know good and evil.
Audience: In the graphic of the Pentagram ...
Instructor: The Pentagram, or the Tetragrammaton, of Eliphas Levi. Adam and Chavah or you can read Eve also because the letter Hei is a vowel as well sometimes and the letter Vav is V, so you can read Eve.
Instructor: The main thing here is that through the Pentagram we are addressing the image of God, which is Iod-Havah or Adam-Havah is with Hei, but when we address the female she is Chavah, with Chet. This is because Chavah or Eve, which we are explaining here is the sexual organ. Chavah with Chet means Zain and Vav together. But when we take Zain out of Chet then it is Hei, Havah; but is the same meaning, with Chet or with Hei is always addressing the female aspect of God, but with Chet is when you are sexually working with it because remember that Chavah, is the mother of all the living, meaning that the living are those who are transmuting the energy, those are the living, Chavah. But above, when you already self-perfected, you are no longer Chavah but Havah, Adam-Havah, an androgynous who does not need sex.
Audience: Is it Isaac or Ishmael who is going to be sacrificed by Abraham ?
Instructor: Both. Isaac is forgiven, and the one that is going to be sacrificed is Ishmael, of course. Isaac is the one that is going to be killed but the angel says "No, do not kill him, kill the other", which is the symbol of the animal, the lamb or the goat. But that killing means psychological, not physical, meaning that Ishmael has all the defects, vices and errors within, Malkuth, this is why is mocking. So, the one that is sacrificed at the end is Ishmael. But I repeat, understand that alchemically, such a sacrifice is not a physical killing, is alchemical. To make a righteous Ishmael you have to build the Bodhichitta, to annihilate that which is unrighteous in Ishmael, is to annihilate the ego, to clean the two moons Lilith and Nahemah, this is what you have to understand, that in the end, because Isaac remains in heaven but Ishmael remains in the physical world. But always listening to God; thus, listen, you, Ishmaels: You have to die.
Audience: You said that it says in Genesis "you shall not touch it" and then you said we can touch the tree so which one is it. We can touch it or we can not touch it?
Instructor: The woman is the one that is saying to the serpent but when you read Jehovah Elohim said: "You shall not eat of it" and the woman says "not even touch it", right? But then the serpent, accordance to the Zohar said "No, the thing is you shall not eat, you can touch it. Look, I touch it and I do not die". And it is true because the Elohim touch it and they do not die, but if you eat it you will die. But then, when Eve said "I will touch it and will try not to eat it" but she did eat it and gave it to Adam and they both liked the orgasm and say: "Oh, this is a good fruit.” they forgot that Fornication is for animals, not for humans" thus, this is how they are kicked out of Eden, etcetera.
Audience: As a single person, is it correct to work on making sight wiser than touch?
Instructor: Well, you have to educate your senses. Remember that in the path of self-realization you have to educate your sight, your hearing, your smell, your taste. We teach about that in many lectures, you have to educate your senses because, remember, those senses act through the flesh. In other words, the serpent encircles all of them, that is why is wiser than any of those beasts, or all those senses,. So, for those single people, there is an exercise called Vajroli Mudra in which the single person touches, with their hands, the sense of touch, the sexual organs in different ways in order to transmute. You can learn that in the website, it cannot taught such practice here because is very graphic, but is called Vajroli Mudra, in which the single person touches himself, not in the masturbation way because that is negative, that is precisely touching the serpent in the filthy way. Vajroli Mudra teaches you how to transmute the sexual energy through the touching of, your flesh, in order to be in Chastity when you are single. If you are married, you do not need that because in the sexual act you face your own Eve or your Adam, and that temptation is stronger; Study the advice of the Master Huiracocha, withdraw before the orgasm.
Audience: If single man is transmuting as pure-minded as one can, will he transmute better if he has an erected phallus, like Baphomet?
Instructor: Good question. This is precisely what we are explaining. If the male, has an erection of the phallus, will he transmute better? The Vajroli Mudra teaches that. You have to give a massage to the sexual organs in order to transmute, in order not to lose the erection of the phallus, and also for the woman, she needs the activity of her sexual organs. But it has to be done, of course, with the invocation of Allah, with the invocation of Jehovah, IAO, your Divine Mother, your Divine Father otherwise you fall under temptation. This is the way in order to be born again.
Audience: Does "eating" relate to oral sex?
Instructor: Oral sex is animal, one hundred percent.
"Oh generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, we have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” – Luke 3: 7-9
Listen, eating means to eat the energy of sex as animal, remember we explained in the beginning. The lion relates to the sight, the bull relates to the hearing, the eagle relates to the nose, the smell; and taste, to eat with the mouth relates to Adam. Thus, to eat of the fruit means that Adam, your brain, your head, absorbs the passional animal energy of Fornication, this is the wrong way; thus, not eating the fruit means to avoid bestiality and that is precisely the point here. In this day and age they use the word ‘eating’ as a vulgarity related to the oral sex. Observe any mammal, cat, dog, etc., they always do oral sex, because they are animals. If you want to be a human being, you had to stop being an animal. But if you do not want to be a human being then keep behaving as animal.
Audience: What is the Karma of a man or a woman who cannot reach orgasm?
Instructor: The Karma? There is no Karma there in the case if there is a woman who cannot reach the orgasm. Why, if you cannot reach the orgasm, you have to fight for it? demons advise: "if you cannot reach the orgasm then fight for it, in order to be an animal." This is incongruent with human sexuality. In this day and age, this is precisely the teachings that people receive; demons teach that some women have difficulties to reach the orgasm so, therefore their men have to teach them how. Women were, in past times, chaste by nature, but in this day and age there is a lot of pornography and filthy teachings where women learn how to fornicate, how to reach the orgasm, and that is bad. In other words, demons teach the woman how to be more bestial than she already is, and how the man can be more bestial than he already is. Thus, remember, the choice is yours. Take the path of the good or the evil, is up to you.
Audience: When Adam was androgynous and then was split, is the split related to a spiritual concept of the division of a soul mate. I am not referring our current egotistical state.
Instructor: The split of a soul mate, the split of Adam and Eve, well, it is true. That explains the split that we explained in previous lectures, how Adam meets his soul mate, but through initiation. But here we are talking about the descent of the power of creation into the physicality, and that, of course, that splitting of the forces is in order for us to learn how to find our own soul mate, spiritually speaking. In this physical world you can find somebody that match you mentally, emotionally, spiritually, that is good. But the real mate is inside because, as we explained in other lectures, if you have ego your soul mate has to have ego, otherwise it does not match you. You have anger, your soul mate has to have anger too, that is your soul mate. But if you want your soul mate without ego, you have to enter into initiation and resurrect and to enter into the Garden of Eden, which is Yetzirah, Yesod, and when you reach that level then, in another creation, in another planet, you can become, as an androgynous person and through evolution, eventually, your Being will divide you in two sexes, and with your other mate, you will have children, according to the law of God, in order to give opportunity to new monads, new souls, to enter into the path of Baphomet.
Audience: Can you pronounce the mantra Kawlakaw ...
Instructor: Can I pronounce the mantra that the Master advises in The Perfect Matrimony? After vocalizing seven times I A O you have to pronounce the mantra Kawlakaw Sawlasaw Zeesar. That is the mantra in order to unite the superior and the inferior, the physical personality and the immanence of the superior power of Father in heaven, in your soul. And that is precisely how you practice Sexual Magic with IAO, because in the sexual act you have to be religious, united with God. That is called religion. That is the true religion when you become one, because if you are not in the sexual act, you are divided, but in the sexual act you are one, and remember, God is one. But is not outside, there, in heaven, is inside of you. When you are in the sexual act, God is one. And if you pollute the sexual act, you are insulting that only God within you.
