This is a transcription of the audio lecture Gnostic Mysteries 02 The Son of Man AUDIO originally given live on Gnostic Radio, which you can download for free. There is also an accompanying PDF: Gnostic Mysteries 02 The Son of Man PDF
Let us penetrate into the Gnostic mysteries of the Son of Man, which is related to the Sephirah Tiphereth. Let us study the first graphic where we find the ten sephiroth of the Tree of Life plus the Ain Soph Aur, which is the limitless light, which in the previous lecture we explained is related with the cosmic Christ.
“I will begin this discourse by invoking God, the Master of the Universe, the Creator and the Father, Who contains all, Who is All in One, and One in All. For the plenitude of all things is Unity, and in Unity; nor is the one term inferior to the other, since the two are one. Bear in mind this thought, O King, during the whole of my exposition. Vain is it to seek to distinguish the All and the One by designating the multitude of things the All, and not their Plenitude. Such a distinction is impossible, for the All exists no longer if separated from Unity; and if Unity exists, it is in the Totality; now it indeed exists and never ceases to be One, otherwise the Plenitude would be dissolved.
“In the bosom of the earth there are impetuous springs of water and of fire; such are the three natures of fire, water, and earth, proceeding from a common origin. Whereby it may be thought that there is one general fountain of matter, bringing forth all abundantly and receiving existence from on high. It is thus that heaven and earth are governed by their creator, that is, by the sun, who causes essence to stream downwards, and matter to rise upwards, and who draws to himself the universe, giving all to everything, lavish of the benefits of his radiance. It is he who distributes beneficent energies not only in heaven and throughout the air, but upon earth also, and even in the depths of the abyss. If there be an intelligible substance, it must be the very substance of the sun, whose light is the vehicle thereof. But what may be its constitution and primal fount, he only knows. That by induction we may understand that which is hidden from our sight, it would be necessary to be near him and analogous to his nature. But that which he permits us to behold is no conjecture; it is the splendid vision which illuminates the universal and supernal world.
“In the midst of the universe is the sun established, like the bearer of the crowns; and even as a skilful driver, he directs and maintains the chariot of the world, holding it to its course. He keeps fast the reins of it, even life, soul, spirit, immortality, and birth. He drives it before him, or, rather, with him. And after this manner he forms all things, dispensing to immortals eternal permanence. The light, which from his outer part streams towards heaven, nourishes the immortal spaces of the universe. The rest, encircling and illuminating the entirety of the waters, the earth, and the air, becomes the matrix wherein life germinates, wherein are initiated all births and metamorphoses, transforming creatures, as by a spiral motion, and causing them to pass from one portion of the world to another, from one species to another, and from one appearance to another; maintaining the equilibrium of their mutual metamorphoses, as in the creation of greater entities. For the permanence of bodies consists in transmutation. But immortal forms are indissoluble, and mortal bodies decompose; such is the difference between the immortal and the mortal.” - Asclepius
In Kabbalah, when we address the cosmic Christ, we are addressing the Ain Soph Aur, which is the first emanation of the Ain Soph, the abstract absolute space. The Ain Soph Aur is “limitless light,” it is what we call the ray of creation that emerges from the Ain Soph and that goes down through all the ten sephiroth of the Tree of Life until reaching Malkuth, the bottom of the Tree of Life; the ray penetrates the inferior layers of the Earth, Malkuth, in order to reach the ninth sphere, where the core or the heart of the Earth is found. So the ray of creation begins in the Absolute and ends in the Infernos. This is how we have to see the journey of the creative light that we call the Ain Soph Aur.
By studying the Tree of Life, we understand that the ray of creation is the Christ, in Greek terms, and that the Christ is a unity that we call a “perfect multiple unity.” That multiple unity is the Ain Soph Aur, the Solar Absolute, which we also call the Glorian or using other terminology, the ray of Okidanokh that emerges from the Absolute. This Ain Soph Aur, this light of the Solar Absolute, is universal and cosmic, and what we call the Cosmic Krestos, and it is related with all other forces or lights that are synthesized in one light in the seventh and zero dimension, which is the abode of אאלהים Aelohim. The letter א a of Aelohim means “without,” and אלהים Elohim means “gods and goddesses.” This means that אאלהים Aelohim is a Seity beyond any god or any deity. Thus, Aelohim is what we call the Seity, the universal cosmic Christ, within the Abstract Absolute space.
The first emanation of this light that penetrates into the universe is represented in the first triangle of the Tree of Life, ruled by the sephirah Kether, “the crown,” which in Christianity is called “the Father.” The first triangle represents the holy three-unity; this means that this light, the Ain Soph Aur, divides itself into three unities, thus forming with it four unities. These four unities form what we call the Tetragrammaton, or יהוה the four-lettered name of God; in Hebrew these four-letters יהוה are pronounced Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei which spells the holy name יהוה Jehovah or Iod-Havah, which represents the first emanation or holy name formed by the light in its unmanifested and in its manifested aspects.
Now, when the trinity or thee-manifested unity becomes a duality, it is represented by the Sephirah Daath, located under the first triangle. This duality is what we call Abba and Aima Elohim (“Father and Mother Gods and Goddesses”). So Abba and Aima Elohim are the duality of the Tetragrammaton, or what we call יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei.
From heaven and earth - Ram and Ewe, that duality Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei in Daath emerges the seven breaths or the seven rays or seven horns of the lamb that are related with the seven lower sephiroth of the Tree of Life. In this way in Gnosticism we understand that Christ is a unity, multiple and perfect, in the abstract absolute space, which we call the Ain Soph Aur. This light manifested in the universe is the trinity or three-unity (3) that with the Ain Soph (1) form (3+1=) the Tetragrammaton or the four lettered name of God. Here we see Christ as one, as three, as four, and then from the four it forms the duality, which is father-mother, and from this father-mother which the book of Genesis calls “heaven and earth,” from these two divine forces or father-mother [ram and ewe] emerge the seven rays or breaths of the Absolute that the book of Revelation calls “the seven horns of the lamb.”
So behold the cosmic Christ as one, as three, as four, as duality, and as seven.
The seven rays penetrate from above into the Earth, thus reaching the center of this three-dimensional Earth, which is the physical world in which we live and give life to all of its kingdoms.
Above the physical Earth (Malkuth) we find the world of Yesod, which is the fourth dimension, that the bible calls Eden. Eden is situated in the fourth dimension.
Above Yesod, we find the sephiroth Hod and Netzach, related with the fifth dimension. And above them we find the other sephiroth, related with the sixth dimension, which are the sephiroth Tiphereth, Geburah and Chesed. And beyond the sixth dimension, we find Kether, Chokmah and Binah in the seventh dimension, which relates to the Glorian, which with the Ain Soph Aur in the zero dimension or Absolute as we explained forms the Tetragrammaton.
Thus, above the sephiroth Hod and Netzach, above the fifth dimension, we find the sixth dimension, causality; here is where we find the sephiroth Chesed, Geburah, and Tiphereth, in other words, the mountain of God, El: the Spirit, the Divine soul, and the Human soul.
In order to reach the mountain of God, which Moses reached when entering Tiphereth, there is a lot of work to do, this, alchemically speaking. When Moses reached the level of Tiphereth, he then received a lightning, a ray from the Ain Soph Aur, which descended into the Trinity as explained in previous lectures, because underneath the Ain Soph Aur we find the three sephiroth, Kether, Chokmah and Binah, which relates to the Trinity in many religions. Thus, through Chokmah, which is called “the child” or “the Son,” is how that ray descends into and through Daath, where we find the union of Binah as father and mother. So, this is how Christ as a ray of the unknowable Divine, descends from Kether into Chokmah and becomes the child of the Divine Mother Kundalini (Binah), which in Christianity is called Mary, in ancient Egypt called Isis, in Greek mythology Hera, Rea, Cybele; she receives many names. In Daath she is united with the Holy Spirit (Binah), and from her virginal womb the ray descends into the Human Soul: Tiphereth, who in esotericism, in Alchemy, in Kabbalah, we call “the Son of Man.”
The Son of Man is a breath, a force, an energy that we have to comprehend: the light, the force that we are talking about, the Universal Christ, in Sanskrit is called Prana. It is magnetism, electricity, sound... This is why the Gospel of John calls it “the Word,” saying:
“In the beginning was the Word (Logos), and the Word (Logos) was with God, and the Word (Logos) was God (Theos).” – John 1: 1
In Gnosticism we study the Logos, which is Greek for “word.” So the first Logos is the Father, the second Logos is the Son, and the third Logos is the Holy Spirit. These are Kether, Chokmah, Binah. In India they are called Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva. Different religious have different representations of these same archetypes, universal forces or breaths from the Absolute.
In Hebrew, when we speak about breath, we can say it in many ways: Neshamah is breath, but also Ruach, which is related with wind and spirit. There is another important word for breath that we will study in this lecture, which is Abel. In Hebrew הֶבֶל, Habel is the child of Adam and Eve. Habel also means “breath.” Indeed, the Hebrew language is very rich in denominating different types of breaths. In Kabbalah, we say Neshamah is the Divine soul, while Ruach is the thinking soul. Abel or Habel is that breath that represents the Human soul. This is very important to understand in order to comprehend the Bible, and the way in which the Christ, who is called Vishnu in India, Quetzalcoatl in the Nahuatl Mexican doctrine, and Krestos in Greek, is a universal force, a breath with many names.
In this day and age, people think that Christ is an exclusive title for the master Jesus of Nazareth that came 2000 years ago in the Holy Land, and that he is also the Son of Man. But for us, the Gnostics, Moses is the Son of Man, Muhammad is the Son of Man, Quetzalcoatl is the Son of Man: anyone that incarnates the Cosmic Christ becomes a Son of Man. So, the Son of Man is the human aspect of that universal force.
The Sign of Christ and the Sign of the Devil
As you see in the graphic, we have a variation of a painting by Leonardo Da Vinci, Salvator Mundi, “the Savior of the World.” There are many variations that painters did that we will also look at; we feature this one that is very interesting. It is the Lord, the Son of Man, forming with his hand a sign that in Gnosticism we call “Inverential peace,” which means “peace to you.”
“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. This light is the light of the Ancient of Days. Christ said: ‘Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.’ [John 14:27]” – Samael Aun Weor
So, peace is energy, it is light that emanates from Kether. Kether takes that light from the Ain Soph Aur and projects it into the Tree of Life. When the Lord says, “My peace I give unto you,” he means his light. So, the light of the Lord and of the Father is peace. This is the symbol of the hand sign, “peace to you.” Notice the three fingers pointing upwards; they represent Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is also a sign of the upright pentagram.
The two fingers pointing down represent the two feet of the star of five points. If you do the opposite hand sign, two fingers up and three down, it represents the upside down pentagram, a symbol of the fallen light, Satan, the devil. Two fingers up and three fingers down means the opposite of Christ. In this day and age they use it for “peace.” But it is not a sign of peace; the sign of peace is the one shown in the image of the Lord with three fingers up. The other is the fallen star, in other words, the demon.
We have to understand this, as when we do sanctification or blessing of something, we must always use three fingers, because it is the Trinity that is channeled through our spirit, soul, mind, and physicality.
So, this is the famous painting of Leonardo Da Vinci that shows the three primary forces, Kether, Chokmah and Binah. It shows that Jesus is a vehicle of the Cosmic Christ, one of the rays of the Cosmic Christ.
When we enter into meditation and Samadhi to experience the redeemer of the world, which is cosmic, we do not see any personage there, only light; it is a force. This is why the Cosmic Christ said through Jesus’ body, “I am the light of the world,” saying that he is a vehicle of that light.
The Four Directions and the Four Rivers of Eden
The Son of Man, according to the Tree of Life, relates to the sephirah Tiphereth, which esoterically is called “the East.” In Kabbalah, we study the four cardinal points as follows: North relates to the sephirah Chesed, South relates to the sephirah Geburah. Chesed is our spirit. Geburah is our spiritual or divine soul. The sephirah Tiphereth is “the East,” the human soul. And down here in the sephirah Malkuth, the very bottom of the Tree of Life, is where we find “the West.” This is how the four cardinal points have to be seen in order to comprehend the forces of the Lord.
These four cardinal points are related to the four rivers of Eden in Genesis: Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel, and Euphrates. It is important to understand the relationship between the four cardinal points and the four rivers of Eden in order to understand why the Bible states that the Son of Man comes from the East.
When we imagine the planet Earth, we place the north at the top, the North Pole, and south is at the very bottom, the South Pole; the East is to the right and the west to the left. So when people read: “For as the lightning comes out of the East, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be” [Matthew 24: 27] immediately they assume that “East” is the Middle East or the region that roughly encompasses Western Asia, thus they have built many theories around it.
So anyone that wants to pose as the Son of Man has to say that he was born in the Middle East. This is how a phony Son of Man easily fools people that do not know Kabbalah.
We understand also that the physical body is a small Earth; we call it “the philosophical earth.” The north is on our head, the south on our feet. When we see the back not the front of our physicality, the East is always towards the right and west towards the left; so, north up upon our head and south down towards our feet, thus, with open arms, East to the right and west to the left. This is how we have to understand it kabbalistically and alchemically.
Yet according to the ten sephiroth on the Tree of Life, the East is the sephirah Tiphereth and the West is the sephirah Malkuth, both of which are in the central column. Tiphereth, the East, aligns to the right column of the Tree of Life, and Malkuth, the Earth which is the West, aligns to the left column of the Tree of Life. So, we have to know how those forces or elements are also related with the physical body.
The Seven Metals
“The subterranean layers of the Earth (or any planet or star) represent the kingdom of minerals (lithosphere). The kingdom of metals is the barysphere that envelops a heart of incredible density and frightful inertia. We must make a clear distinction between the mineral kingdom and the kingdom of metals. Among minerals, the group of metals is a cosmically separated group. A little beyond the kingdom of metals, there exists a certain very rare type of matter that has closer contact with the Absolute (with the Ain Soph Aur). We must comprehend profoundly that the Almighty Holy One abides behind the kingdom of metals. The Ray of Creation begins in the Absolute and ends in the Inferno; but what is beyond the Inferno? It is clear that beyond the Inferno, behind the kingdom of metals, the Absolute is found.” – Samael Aun Weor
Physically, we have three nervous systems, namely, central nervous system, grand sympathetic nervous system, and parasympathetic nervous system. Physically speaking, our three nervous systems are receiving and transmitting the three primary forces of the universe, which are energy, electricity.
The main seven metal mines of any planet form the nervous system of that planet. So beyond the nervous system, beyond the metals, we find the Ain Soph Aur, the Absolute. Thus, the light that comes from Ain Soph Aur ends exactly in the ninth sphere of any planet, which we call Inferno from the Latin word infernus (inferior). So, this is how the nature of the light of the Sun can be understood from this point of view. The light from the Absolute, from the Unknowable Divine to the Holy Trinity, and to the seven rays descends and develops in different grades, which we explained are related to the seven main metals of any planet, especially the Sun.
“When the stellar rays reach our earth, they produce colors, sounds, and metallic elementals which then condense into metals. Metallic elementals that evolve become plant elementals; plant elementals transform into animal elementals; and then animal elementals finally become humans (their divine sparks-Monads awaken in order to incarnate for the first time within them) who eventually will become angels in order to return once again to their Father who engendered them.
“All this descent and ascent of the virginal sparks [of light] through this journey of matter is symbolized by the ladder in Jacob’s dream.
“What is iron? It is the soul of “Samael-Mars” evolving there.
“What is copper? It is the soul of “Uriel-Venus” evolving there.
“What is lead? It is the soul of “Orifiel-Saturn” evolving there.
“What is gold? It is the soul of “Michael-the Sun” evolving there.
“What is silver? It is the soul of “Gabriel-the Moon” evolving there.
“What is tin? It is the soul of “Zachariel-Jupiter” evolving there.
“All this flux and reflux of life resounds in all of nature with the Chinese gong.
“Upon the arrival of the cosmic night, all the sparks (of light or Monads), converted into flames, return into their stellar Fathers, and their stellar Fathers return into the Unmanifested Logos to submerge themselves into the limitless bliss of the Absolute, where neither tears nor pain exist, where we are all “one,” where we are all “that Seity,” the “unnamed,” “that,” “that,” “that.”
Kabbalistically we say, the first, in other words, the number zero, is the Absolute. This is the Cosmic Christ, the Ain Soph Aur. Then, the three primary forces that form the Holy Trinity crystallize within these seven main metals. So if we take the three primary forces plus the Ain Soph Aur, we get the famous Tetragrammaton, the holy name of God, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei or Jehovah within every cosmic ray. In this manner we can recognize that Jehovah is - symbolically speaking, in an archetypical manner - light and fire.
The Light of Christ
So that light force called Holy Trinity descends into the center of any planet and manifests its creative potential through the seven main metals. We also have these metals in our physicality; although, the light of the Lord shines in us according to our level.
This is why in many pictures of the transfiguration of Jesus a light is shining through him in order to show us the strength of the Sun; such is a human manifestation of this divine light that also happened to Moses when descended from Mount Sinai:
“And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.” – Exodus 34: 30
Likewise, if we read the scriptures from other religions, i.e. in the Mahabharata we see how Krishna transfigured in front of Arjuna and shows his own light as a splendor ('splendor' in Kabbalah is Tiphereth, which also is translated as 'beauty', but the real translation is 'splendor').
“Since you cannot see Me with your present eyes; therefore I give you divine eyes. Behold My mystic opulence! Sanjaya said: O King, having spoken thus, the Supreme Lord of all mystic power, the Personality of Godhead, displayed His universal form to Arjuna.
“Arjuna saw in that universal form unlimited mouths, unlimited eyes, unlimited wonderful visions. The form was decorated with many celestial ornaments and bore many divine upraised weapons. He wore celestial garlands and garments, and many divine scents were smeared over His body. All was wondrous, brilliant, unlimited, all-expanding.” - Bhagavad-Gita 11: 9-11
The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Those who fix their minds on my personal form and are always engaged in worshiping Me with great and transcendental faith are considered by Me to be most perfect. But those who fully worship the unmanifested, that which lies beyond the perception of the senses, the all-pervading, inconceivable, unchanging, fixed and immovable—the impersonal conception of the Absolute Truth—by controlling the various senses and being equally disposed to everyone, such persons, engaged in the welfare of all, at last achieve Me.” - Bhagavad-Gita 12: 3-5
So you find in many religions how different human beings, who reached the level of the Son of Man, transfigured and showed their light. This is not an exclusivity of Master Jesus, he showed that because it was his mission, but other great prophets showed this transfiguration before him. This is why when we talk about alchemy; we talk about the transmutation of metals.
In the Middle Ages, there were many alchemists who claimed they could transmute lead into gold. Gold is the most elevated metal of all. When we talk about the gold, we always address the Sun. If you study astrology, you will find that the people born in the sign of Leo have gold as their metal. That is why we state that the main metal that is in the veins or the mines of the Sun is gold. That is why we see that vibration, that magnetism, that light, as almighty powerful. But the Earth also shines into space, yet in a lower level. So the magnetism, the electricity, the light of different stars is just the magnetism of the nervous system of those planets that are called mines or kingdom of metals, which are in between this physical world and the Unknowable Divine, the Ain Soph Aur. If you develop clairvoyance, you will see that this light shines everywhere in the planets, in all the kingdoms. This is why Master Samael Aun Weor taught that in order for us to become a vehicle of that light, which is Christ, we have to build solar bodies. Solar bodies are in Greek called To Soma Heliakon (σῶμα ἡλιακόν). They shine like gold. The great goal of alchemists is to transform all the solar bodies, to make them of pure gold, metallic. Study “The Metallic Planets of Alchemy” written by Master Samael, so that you will understand this better.
So, according to the alchemical purified degree that we manage to transform the inner bodies; physical body, vital body, astral body, mental body, causal body, divine soul and spirit into pure gold, at that rank, as gold, we become a living expression of the seven metals of the Earth, a solar vehicle of the Lord, the Christ. This is what is called “the Son of Man.”
Primeval Christians always said with great devotion, "Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Sun."
“Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying: I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” – John 8: 12
By reflecting on this, you will see that the light of life of this planet comes from the Sun. Without the Sun, without the sun light, this planet would be a moon, a dead planet. Jesus himself says, “I am the light of the world”, and the light of the world is the sun light. The sun descends and shines in Tiphereth. Behold what Revelation says in the first chapter when the Son of Man appears to Iōannēs (Greek), or John (English). The name Iōannēs contains the seven esoteric vowels IOUAMES which relate to the seven metals.
“I saw…… the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; and his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shines in his strength. – Revelation 1: 12-16
The book of Revelation talks extensively about the number seven and the Sun light. Remember that the Sun is the ruler of the constellation Leo. Leo in Hebrew is called אַרְיֵה or “Arieh.” It reminds us of Arya, our present root race (Aryan), a race of the Lion, of the fire. In the chapter 49 of the book of Genesis, Jacob blesses all of his children, and when he reaches Judah, he says:
“Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: his eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.” – Genesis 49: 8-12
“Yehuda” is the constellation of Leo, which is in relation with the Sun, it is the lion. Anyone that performs the transmutation of forces is a lion of Judah. Among the hierarchy of Christified adepts, the most elevated hierarchy is the one of Leo, or the lions of Judah, which are the Jews. We are not addressing the Jews of the Middle East, or those who live in other parts of the world and call themselves Jews. The book of Revelation states in chapter 2 and 3 verses 9:
“I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie.”
Kabbalistically and alchemically speaking, a Jew is a Hillel Ben Shahar “a glorified child of the dawn, a child of Leo” somebody that sublimates the solar light, that is, somebody that works with the forces of Judah. Yet, those who do not sublimate the solar splendors of Tiphereth deposited in Yesod, the sexual organs, disobey the rules of Moses, who as the Son of Man said:
“And if any man has an emission of semen, he shall bathe his whole body in water and be unclean until the evening [Klipoth].… The woman also with whom he had an emission of semen, shall be washed with water, and shall be unclean until the evening [Klipoth]…. Thus shall you separate the children of Israel [Tiphereth] from their uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile [Yesod] my tabernacle that is among them.” - Leviticus 15: 16, 18, 31
So, those who disobey become individually and collectively a synagogue of Satan.
The book of Revelation says that when Iōannēs saw all of these marvelous things and how the solar light was awakening the seven churches or the seven Ecclesias, all of a sudden he became an Ecclesiastes, in other words a preacher. So, Qoheleth in Hebrew, is the preacher that put into activity the seven churches, the seven chakras, the seven breaths or Iōannēs; and after that Revelation states:
And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders said unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. – Revelation 5: 1-5
You might think that the Lion of the tribe of Judah is a Jew from the Middle East. No, and yet, yes. This is what we find when we behold things with the spiritual eyes. Behold the Tree of Life; in the middle of the Tree of Life we find Tiphereth, and Tiphereth is the East. So, is the Son of Man coming from the Middle East? Yes, Kabbalistically speaking. It is amazing to see things from this point of view. Tiphereth is in the very center of the Tree of Life. And in any book of Kabbalah it is known that Tiphereth, “splendor,” relates to the Sun, which is in the center of our solar system. This means that the entire splendor, all the light of the Ain Soph Aur and the Trinity shines in the very center, in the heart of ourselves. This is why Leo also is related with the heart. So when it is said that the Lion of Judah has prevailed in order to open the seven seals, Iōannēs is Kabbalistically stating that the Lion of Judah is coming from Tiphereth, the middle of the Tree of Life, which is the East. But if you do now know Kabbalah, you might think that the Son of Man is someone that comes from Western Asia, the region East of the Mediterranean, the Middle East.
This is why on the Internet, and in many different parts of the world, have appeared smart-alecks that state that they came from the Middle East, literally speaking, and say that they are the Son of Man. Yet when you know Kabbalah, you say, this person is pulling my leg, because I know that the Middle East is Tiphereth. And the solar light comes from the Ain Soph Aur, from above into Tiphereth, and like a lightning it goes down into the Earth, into Malkuth, the West, the very bottom of the Tree of Life. So, Christ is “the lightning that comes from the East, even into the West.”
Master Samael Aun Weor, who gave us this doctrine, when he was agonizing just before his death, everybody asked him, What is going to happen with Gnosis? How do we will continue? Then he said during his process or agony that,
“I would like to rest for a time, perhaps I will do so because I have my soul mate and at any time I can switch with my “little brother...”
...since he is he. He commented that he was an 18 years old boy, very spiritual, and that he had his own parents and two sisters. He lived very happy with his good family, and that all of them loved him very much. Obviously, if we address the twin soul, we have to address the sephirah Tiphereth. The twin soul of a Master like Samael Aun Weor, fully christified, cannot be Nefesh, because Nefesh is the animal soul. Obviously the human soul is Tiphereth, the twin soul. Nevertheless, here on the Earth appeared another smart-aleck claiming to be the twin soul of Master Samael, physically speaking. But the one who understands Kabbalah sees that the twin soul is in Tiphereth. Only by entering into that level, whether it is through Samadhi or through initiation, can we see who that twin soul, who works through Tiphereth, is; thus, “He” comes through Tiphereth!
In this day and age, there are many prophecies that state that Christ will come as a destroyer, to judge humanity, thus everybody is waiting, right?
“And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that you which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit on the throne of his glory [Tiphereth], you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel [Tiphereth].” - Matthew 19: 28
“Then will appear in heaven [of Tiphereth] the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the [west, the] earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven [of Tiphereth] with power and great glory.” – Matthew 24: 30
The Son of Man will come to judge all the tribes of the Earth; from the clouds of heaven will he emerge. Heaven starts in Tiphereth above, the clouds of heaven hide the mystery of the lightning that comes from the East. Because, what do you see behind the clouds of heaven? You see the Sun, right? Right now the Sun is shining here. But when your sky is overcast, they hide the Sun; so, likewise with the Son of Man, Tiphereth, the Sun, the Christ, the solar force, in the clouds of heaven. So that is the lightning or solar force that comes from the East and that descends in the West, into those who know the mystery of Daath. This does not mean to know intellectually what we explain here, but to practically know the mystery of Daath. To work with Daath means: to reach the level of Tiphereth [Aloah Va Daath], to take the direct path, and then receive the force of Christ. Thus, the doctrine of the Master continues, not outside, but inside of the person.
“Hebrew Kabbalists and Rabbis know very well that the mantra of the Causal World [Tiphereth] was, is, and shall always be, Aloah Va Daath. Meditating on such words is the same as knocking at the marvelous doors of the great temple.” – Samael Aun Weor
Chapter nine of the book of Revelation states:
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power… And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” - Revelation 9: 1-3, 11
As we read, a star, Stella falls from heaven, that is, the solar forces of Heaven fall down unto the Earth. Such star of Heaven is the sephirah Geburah that descends into the bottomless pit, the very center of the Earth, or any other planet. And from the bottomless pit, the abyss of the earth, which is the well of the universe, we see the angel of the Abyss arises.
In this day and age, when they address that angel of the Abyss, they say it is a demon. Revelation does not say a demon, but an ANGEL of the Abyss whose name is Abaddon (Hebrew) and Apollyon (Greek). Who is Apollyon? Apollyon is Apollo-lion, the lion of the Sun (Apollo is a Sun god) that goes to the center of the Earth in order to give life to the planet. This happens during the Holy Week.
The Lord is born in the East, and is crucified in the Earth, in the West, he descends into its very center. The Christian creed states:
“I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into the infernos. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sited at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Gnostic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.”
He died and went to hell. This is clear; hell is the center of the Earth. And thereafter he rose again; he resurrected and ascended back to heaven! This is the transition of Apollo, the Christic solar light in the planet, but also in the individual that is walking on the alchemical cross; the path. “From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.”
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads [on the alchemical cross] the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.” – Revelation 19: 11-16
This is why it is stated in the Book of Revelation that Apollo as Apollyon is the angel of the Abyss that comes to destroy- that is, judge and make war. But ignorant people are waiting for a person that shall come to destroy, judge and make war like Napoleon that appeared and who carried his name.
Listen carefully. The solar light gives life, but also destroys life. This is precisely what happens on the planet Earth, when the light shines from above, and goes into the center of the Earth, every year is passing that transformation, the Passion of the Lord, going into hell and resurrecting. That is why resurrection, or Easter as we call it in the United States, sometimes falls in March, sometimes in April. Why? because it relates to the movement of the Sun, which is elliptical. The Sun moves elliptically from the north to the south and from the south to the north in relation with the movement of the Earth. Right now it is in the North; we are receiving a lot of light. But in (our) winter, the Sun is in the south. It is very cold here, and the Lord has to come, has to be born in the North in order for us to receive the light. That is precisely the movement of the Sun in relation to the Earth. North to south, south to north. Physically speaking, the North is the head. When we say this, we are putting the sephirah Chesed on top of our head. And the south, which is Geburah, is going down to the west, to hell. That is why it is said that the South is hell, very hot. But when that happens, the East becomes the right side of the Tree of Life, and the West becomes the left side: There is a movement of the four cardinal points in relation with Kabbalah. Knowing this is how we understand what is written in different parts of the Bible.
John, the Son of Man
Let us continue on with the Son of Man. The Son of Man is the union of the Divine with the Human, with the human soul that we have. Understand that when we say human we are not addressing the physical body; here a lot of people call each other “human beings.” But if we physically put any person called a human being next to another person that has built astral, mental and causal bodies within, we will see a great difference. The one with inner bodies (which Paul of Tarsus in the Gospels calls the Soma Psychikon, or Soma Pneumatikon in Greek; these bodies relate to the seven bodies of man) is a real human, he is what we call a Iōannēs or John. This is why the gospel of John or the gospel of Iōannēs, is the gospel of the real human. And this is why the Book of Revelation states, that the one who wrote it and saw the Lord was Iōannēs, because Iōannēs is IOUAMES, the seven vowels, the seven metals, the seven breaths. Otherwise, you can believe in the Lord, you can love the Lord with all your heart, but only by building Iōannēs within you can know the mystery of the Word. That is why it is written in the first chapter of John, 14-17:
“And the Word was made flesh (in Iōannēs), and dwelt among us (us meaning those initiates that have reached that level) and we beheld his glory [Tiphereth], the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John, Iōannēs bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spoke, He that comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace; for the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”
This is called the Venustic Initiation, when the initiate takes the direct path. When this happens, John, Iōannēs is present, and Jesus representing the Son of God is also present in the baptism in the Jordan of life. Heaven is opened, the Holy Spirit appears, Binah appears in Daath, and his glory indwells in Jesus. Thus, Jesus together with Iōannēs becomes the Son of Man. This is why John, Iōannēs, bares witness of Christ. This means that anyone that reaches the level of Tiphereth can see the naked truth of what we are talking about here. The inner Iōannēs sees and touches that with his own soul. It is not that he is going to read the Bible, or hear a ceremony about it, no: the inner Iōannēs experiences that with his inner senses, with his inner eyes and says: “This was he of whom I spoke, He that comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.” In other words, the one who reaches the level of authentic human being recognizes that what impelled him or her to reach that level is the Christic light in the sexual alchemical work that we perform.
So, alchemically speaking, “He was before me. And of his fullness have all we [alchemists] received, and grace for grace; for the law was given by Moses (who is also Tiphereth, the causal body, the body of willpower), but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”
Jesus and the Son of Man
Now, Jesus Christ has to be explained. Yeshua means “savior” and Christ is a fire. When you reach that level or fifth initiation of major mysteries, you become Iōannēs (John) and then you receive that grace, that light, that Christ within you; thus, you have started to develop within you your inner Jesus Christ. This is something Master Samael and Master Jesus explained in the book Pistis Sophia, the Gnostic Bible. He calls Tiphereth “the child of the child.”
Who is the child or the Son? It is the sephirah Chokmah. Remember that Kether, Chokmah, and Binah are Father, Son and Holy Spirit. So Chokmah is the Child, the Son; but when Chokmah descends into Tiphereth, our human soul, then Tiphereth becomes the child of the child, in other words, the Son of Man.
If you read the biblical book of Ezekiel, you will see that he is also called the Son of Man. Ezekiel explains kabbalistically in the first chapter how he becomes the Son of Man; because Son of Man is anyone who incarnates the Christ. Nevertheless, many clowns claim to be the Son of Man according to prophecies. The Son of Man can be only the one who through internal initiaiton reaches the sephirah Tiphereth, and who takes the direct path to the Absolute.
So among those Sons of men there are many levels. Jesus of Nazareth is highest in the hierarchy of the Sons of Men. Yet, Muhammad is a Son of Man, Buddha is a Son of Man, Krishna is a Son of Man, Moses is a Son of Man, Quetzalcoatl is a Son of Man, Samael Aun Weor is a Son of Man; anyone who receives the Venustic Initiation is a Son of Man, a vehicle of the Lord. Only through Sexual Alchemy can we reach that initiation.
That is why primeval Christians always said with great devotion, "Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Sun,” pointing to the center of the Tree of Life.
So now we understand what the Gospel of Iōannēs states, because Iōannēs is Tiphereth, the one who is close to the Lord. As we see in the paintings that this disciple, Iōannēs, is always resting his head on the heart of Jesus. Both Yeshua, the Son of God, and Tiphereth, the human soul, Iōannēs, rest in the heart, because there is where the human soul unites with the Christ. This happens through initiation. This is why Iōannēs is in the heart, but in order to work with the waters of Alchemy, Iōannēs has to go down to Yesod. This is why Yesod, which gathers the waters in Kabbalah, symbolize the sexual organs of Tiphereth and that is why John, Iōannēs the Baptist is in Yesod, but Iōannēs is also in Tiphereth. Behold, Iōannēs is spelled with two nuns or psychic forces; the sexual solar force in Yesod and the Christic solar force of Tiphereth in the heart that must work or blend together in a true harmoniously union with Malkuth, which is the West; because without the West (the woman), the East (the man) cannot perform the solar alchemical work.
“Utterances of the preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. What profit hath a man of all his labor which he takes under the sun? One age passes away, and another age comes: but the earth abides for ever. The sun also arises, and the sun goes down, and hasten to his place where he arose. The spirit goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the spirit returns again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. All the utterances are full of weariness; man cannot utter them: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. What is that which has been, and what is that which shall be; and that which is done is what shall be done: and there is nothing new under the sun.” - Ecclesiastes 1: 1-9
The whole solar work is in Ecclesiastes wonderfully written by Solomon, son of David. (Soliman, solar man). “Utterances of the preacher” we wrote; in some translations it says “Words of the preacher”, because the Hebrew word “Debarim” means “words” (plural). Nevertheless, before entering into the unveiling of the previous paragraph of Ecclesiastes, and in order for you to understand better, let me explain why Moses wrote five books.
The Five Books of Moses
The West, which is the feminine sephirah Malkuth, is where Genesis begins. Any soul who wants to create Iōannēs within, has to start with Genesis, needs to create Heaven and Earth, needs to have a physical body, because the West, Malkuth, receives all the solar light from above. And only in Malkuth can Christ generate Iōannēs within. So you see, the West, Malkuth, is called the mixture of forces. Gnostics say, “do not expect anything from the East, but from the West,” because the West gathers all the forces. The West is your physical body. And, between man and woman, the woman is the West. Malkuth is also feminine. So, Genesis begins in Malkuth.
When we go out from Mizrahim (translated as Egypt, which is Malkuth), we go then into Exodus. The Exodus relates precisely to the waters of Yesod; going out from Egypt into Exodus towards the Promised Land, which is Yesod, the fourth dimension. The Book of Exodus is called in Hebrew Shemoth meaning “names.”
From Yesod we enter the bottom of the left column, which is Hod. Hod, “glory”, is related with the priesthood of Leviticus. So when you talk about Leviticus, you go to the left, because the one who enters into the priesthood of Leviticus is under the rule of Binah, which is located straight up there on the top of the left column. As a child of Levi we enter into the wilderness, which is in Netzach, where Moses makes all of those marvels. This is why Moses is called the ruler of Netzach, the King of Netzach, because the consciousness, the human soul, controls the mind. Numbers is the name of that book written by Moses.
Finally, after Numbers comes Debarim, Tiphereth, Deuteronomy as it is called among the five books of Moses. But in Hebrew it is called Debarim, “words” or “utterances”; because here, in the East, in Tiphereth is where the Word is made flesh.
So after this short elucidation, we will understand why Solomon says, “Utterances of the preacher”: the soul who teaches because the light of the Lord shines through him. Like Jesus, Solomon is a son of David. David represents Malkuth. When our Nefesh, animal soul, has been purified, the outcome of it is Soliman, Solomon, Sun and Moon purified. The Sun above in Tiphereth is a King in Jerusalem, meaning a Malachim, Tiphereth, in his own solar bodies, in Jerusalem. Also, the Malachim, the soul who reaches that level can teach and help the moon, the people in Malkuth. King in Jerusalem, heaven in Jerusalem.
The Seven Vanities
“Vanity of vanities” says the preacher, “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”
Do you know how you say vanity in Hebrew? It is הֶבֶל, Habel, translated to English as Abel, the son of Adam and Eve. Many times we have said that Abel or Habel is the human soul in Kabbalah. But Habel also means “breath.” So the real translation here could be “breath of breaths, all is breath,” because as I said in the beginning, breath is Neshamah, as well as Ruach. But the fact is that nobody in this world can remain alive without Habel, breath. You can stop eating for three months, as Mahatma Gandhi did. But you cannot stop breathing for one minute; people that hold their breath for a couple of minutes become black and blue. We need Habel, the breath! So understand that when it says breaths, this is Habel.
“What profit hath a man of all his labor which he takes under the sun? ”
Now let us see the Tree of Life. We will go back and forth from it in order to understand this “vanity.” Master Samael cited Pistis Sophia, the Eager Soul, Habel, as the breath from the Absolute:
“The Glorian is a breath from the Absolute, which is profoundly unknowable to itself. ”
That breath is called Ain Soph Aur, Christ. That is the breath of the Absolute. And here we find written in Hebrew “vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” The Hebrew word for all means also “temple.” The physical body is a temple. Malkuth is Kabbalistically called Jerusalem. When you read about Jerusalem in the Bible, do not think it talks about Jerusalem in the Middle East. It is talking about the whole planet. That is Jerusalem. The heavenly Jerusalem is different; it is a type of matter that comes after the Alchemical transformation when you follow the path of Christification. This is why we wrote “the temple is vanity.” Or we could say, “the temple is breath, soul,” since without the breath of God we cannot be alive. Remember that the first thing we do when we come into this world is to breathe; then we are alive. That breath is Habel. And remember when God made Adam, he “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and Adam became a living soul,” because Habel is soul-breath.
The word Habel means “breath, vanity,” but also means “vapor, steam, to waste life on vain things; go astray...” thus, when you read in the bible about Abel, the son of Adam and Eve, study Kabbalah and Alchemy in order to understand it. Please, do not fall into the absurdity of those people who think that Cain and Abel were two boys. It is stupid to think that way! “Of course,” people say, “they committed incest with their sister in order to multiply, right?” It is ludicrous to think like that; sadly, there are many people that do it. “Eden,” - they say – “was a beautiful garden there in the Middle East, right? the haven of only Adam and Eve, one man and one woman.” No! It is not like that. To think this way is like returning to the level of the Middle Ages. We are now at the level of the sciences of Kabbalah and Alchemy. We have to study the bible seriously, since most people do not take the Bible seriously, they read it as when they read comics. If you read it literally, it does not make any sense, “And Cain knew his wife” says Genesis 4: 17, meanwhile there was only Adam and Eve since Cain killed Abel; so, where did Cain find his wife? From extraterrestrials maybe? And they go on and on. Fanatic ignoramuses do not know that Genesis is an amalgamation of alchemical statements that we have to understand, in order not to fall into mistaken interpretations.
Behold Vishnu as the Glorian: Kether, Chokmah, Binah; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, representing the breath of the Absolute.
“Vanity (1) of vanities (2)” says the preacher, “Vanity (1) of vanities (2), all is vanity (1).”
1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 = 7
Here you find “vanity of vanities.” “Vanity” is one, but when you say “vanities”, it means two kabbalistically speaking, because “vanities” are plural. Therefore “vanity of vanities (2)” are three. The preacher repeats, “vanity of vanities,” making it six. Then he states, “All is vanity!” Down here, all the forces, all are vanity. All the forces are Habel.
Habel, the breath of the Absolute, is in the mineral kingdom, in the plant kingdom, in the animal kingdom, and in the human kingdom. That is Habel. But it is asleep, because Cain, the intellectual mind, always kills Habel, the breath of life; we utilize our breath of life for foolishness. We kill the life of our body in foolishness. Gnostics follow the path of Abel, as it is written in Genesis, the breath. The first step of the learning to work with breath is Pranayama, to transmute your sexual energy with Habel, your breath; the science of breathing; but when you do not know the meaning of Habel, you ignore that the science of breathing is related with Abel. Abel was working with that science, with the solar forces of the breath of life, because everything is breath. The Spirit, Ruach, is breath. The divine soul, Neshamah is breath, thus, the human soul is also breath. Everything is Abel.
When we work in Alchemy, we create soul-bodies; in other words, breath-bodies, subtle, pure, as Paul of Tarsus called “To Soma Psychikon,” the essence soul. The solar bodies are made of the solar breath. That is why those bodies are subtle, solar, metallic.
Om Mani Padme Hum. When OM, the Glorian, wants to create the solar man, AUM creates a MANI, a true human, through PADME in Yesod, meaning through the lotus flower, which symbolizes wisdom, Chokmah. The syllable, HUM of Human indicates indivisibility; this indivisibility is achieved by Habel, our human consciousness, in which all breaths or souls, Ruach, Neshamah and Nephesh, are one breath that expresses through the “Man” of Human, the MANI, the altruistic manas, mind of enlightenment.
Thus, in order to create the human, you take the breath of Malkuth, your physicality. All is breath; the temple of God, which is your body.
“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that commits fornication sinns against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you [which is breath], which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? - Corintheans 6: 18, 19 ”
This is what Paul of Tarsus says. So, do not fornicate; instead, transmute the sexual force with your breath. Then you will become a human soul. And the Holy Spirit will come and breathe through your nostrils, the “Neshamah”, the superior type of breath. And you will become a living soul, a living breath. This is Kabbalah and Alchemy that we are unveiling to you, because it is necessary to understand this in order to comprehend.
“What profit hath a man of all his labor which he takes under the sun?”
What is under the Sun? You might say Yesod and Malkuth, because Tiphereth is above them; but no! Listen, under the Sun is Klipoth (hell, the evening). Why? Well, tell me, where does the sun rise and where does the sun set? Use your logic. The Sun sets in the West, yes, because the Sun descends in Malkuth. When you work alchemically, the sun rises from the West. This is what the Book of Ecclesiastes says. So what is under the Sun, meaning, under the solar movement, that we said went from the North to the South, and from the South to the North? In relation with everyday life here in Malkuth, the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West. Everything in the earth is in relation with the solar movement, this is why it says “all is breath, all is vanity, the temple is breath, vanity.” Because the vanities of life, everything that is pleasant to the sight, the solar light, makes illusions within yourself. But what is under the Sun then, or the movement from the South to the North, or East to the West, which takes all ten sephiroth? It is simply Klipoth. And what do people do in the Evening, Klipoth? They fornicate. Therefore Solomon the King says, “What profit hath a man that fornicates and labor to make money, becoming a millionaire, doing this and that in the physical world, all the labor that he takes under the Sun?” If he is not transmuting the energy, if he is just in the Earth. Remember that Klipoth is the center of the Earth, and from there the solar light rises, every year in Easter, and goes down again in the Wheel of Samsara. Up and down, up and down, up and down: Evolution, devolution. What profit do we get from this? Entangled in those mechanics? It is why Solomon the King ask, what profit do we get from this recurrence? Coming each life and identifying with dramas, beliefs, theories. We die and we are born again.
“One age passes away, and another age comes: but the earth abides for ever. ”
Here we are in this recurrent drama of this Aryan race. People are worried, the end of the world is coming, they say. It is not the end of the planet, but only the end of this root race. Because the Earth will remain forever, the Divine Mother remains there, while everything comes and goes. Maybe tomorrow we will die; maybe in one week, one month or one year? Who knows when we are going to die? So what profit do we get from all of this recurrent drama? Being preoccupied with the dollar? Yes, to have money is necessary to survive in this jungle that we have created. But how do our souls profit from that if we do not do the work that we need to do?
“The sun [from Tiphereth, the East] also arises [in Malkuth], and the sun [Tiphereth also] goes down [in the west, Malkuth] and [the Solar Spirit] hasten to [Yesod, sex] his place where he arose.”
This is very well explained here, if you know Kabbalah. If you do not, you might say, yes, the sun arises in the East and goes down in the West, but why is Solomon writing about that? No, he is writing about Christ, because he is a golden king; remember at the time of Solomon gold was common, because he was made of gold. This is why one of the three wise men brought gold. But that gold is the transmutation of the metallic forces in you. Preachers we see on TV say, “In the beginning the Lord needed money in order to do his job here, therefore the Kings of the East brought gold, as if saying ‘this is for the organization that you are going to open.’” They explain it this way. But gold is a symbol of the gold of the Spirit; in Alchemy, we transmute lead into gold. This is the meaning of it. This is why Solomon says:
“The [solar] spirit [Ain Soph Aur] goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north.”
The forces that goes from the Ain Soph Aur to the North pole of the Earth and goes to the South. Scientifically we know about this.
“It whirls about continually, and the [solar] spirit [Ain Soph Aur] returns again according to his circuits.”
Spirit in Hebrew is ruach, which also means “wind.” But here we are talking about the solar Spirits. These enter like Santa Claus in the North Pole and beautify it with the Aurora Borealis, the Northern lights, the aura of the North. Santa Claus is there, but he is not a fat guy selling Coca-Cola. The meaning of him is the light of the North. The solar light that enters in the North, or the solar wind as scientists say in this day and age, the solar wind, the migration of the Sun, the magnetism of the Sun, the flare that comes into the North: the Santa Claus. We who knows this, we believe in Santa Claus, not the Coca -Cola-Santa Claus, but the alchemical, kabbalistic Santa Claus, which is something archetypal. People have transformed it into a vulgarity, unfortunately, a business. It is sad, but it is the truth. So that is what the wind or the Spirit does.
“All the rivers run into the sea (yam),” which is the sea of Malkuth: Yesod. All the rivers run there, but what rivers? Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and Eufrates; the four rivers of Eden! They come from above, the waters of space, coming into the sea of the Earth (the body). These are the rivers he is talking about. Yam in Hebrew means “sea” or “ocean.”
So all the rivers of Eden go into the sea, “yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again” in the initiate. Because all those forces that come from above, from Heaven, go into your system and become sexual energy. And if you transmute, they go back into Heaven. If you do not do it, you become a rudimentary man working in Klipoth without any profit.
The smart one says, “I want to profit of what God sends me every day. He sends me the four rivers from Heaven, from the upper Eden, into my body as the solar force. So I am going to transmute the sexual force and I am going to create something better with Alchemy.”
The rest, the billions of inhabitants of the Earth, only believe in this or that. When they go to bed, they fornicate, they reach the orgasm, and they throw the Lord out of themselves. What profit do they get without gold, the solar spirit?
But we teach you how to take advantage of this energy, in order to be rich in Heaven. Remember that the Christ in the body of Jesus said, “Make your treasure in Heaven.” That means transmutation. That gold goes up to your own heaven, your head. If you make your treasure here in the external world, then when you die, you will not take one cent of all the dollars that you have saved. Many millionaires today fight wars to make more money, but in the end they die and they do not take a single cent. But what we do internally, spiritually, psychologically, we take that, and this is the treasure in Heaven.
“All the utterances are full of weariness”
The Seven Utterances of the Lord
In a previous lecture we talked about the seven utterances, the seven words of the Lord on the cross about the alchemical work we need to do.
All the “Debarim” are full of weariness, “man cannot utter them,” but the Lord can utter them. When you incarnate the Lord, he can say, “I am thirsty”. He says, “Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they do,” in the one that has incarnated the Lord, who is performing the path of the cross. And all the seven utterances are repeated in the soul by the Lord who is inside Tiphereth.
So listen, the great master Aberamentho, Jesus Christ, who came 2000 years ago to the Holy Land, pronounced seven utterances. For the first time they were given to humanity to know them, although Jesus was not the first one that pronounced them. In the past, many uttered them. In the present, many are uttering them. And in the future, those who enter into the path will utter them.
“The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. What is that which has been, and what is that which shall be; and that which is done is what shall be done: and there is nothing new under the sun.”
Did you understand this paragraph? Remember, the word “what” hides the meaning of what we read here!
Who understands this? “Me” understands it because “Me” is the Holy Spirit. “What” is the Divine Mother, it is Mother Nature. In Kabbalah, “what” which is ma in Hebrew relates to the physical world, and “Me” which is “who” in Hebrew relates to the spiritual world. Thus, Solomon writes here very clearly: he is not questioning, he is affirming.
He says, “What is that which has been” in this physical world “and What is that which shall be” in the matter. We have reincarnated many times, in “What.”
“And that which is done is what shall be done” in the Wheel of Recurrence, or the Wheel of Samsara.
“What” is always active, it is Mother Nature, that is Ma, “what.”
“Who” is the Holy Spirit, and “What” is Mary, the Divine Mother, in Hebrew “ma” and “me”. This is how it is Kabbalistically hidden. So, when in Kabbalah we address physical matter, we say “What.”
Those who translated the Bible so that the people can enjoy the word of God did not know this kabbalistic meaning, so when they read “What is that which has been, and what is that which shall be; and that which is done is what shall be done” they assumed other things, since they ignored that Solomon was talking in an alchemical manner.
So, “there is nothing new under the sun.” People who follow different religions always fall into “what” because “What is that which has been, and what is that which shall be; and that which is done is what shall be done” etcetera. So, What is the Wheel of Samsara, return and recurrence under the Sun.
“So, what profit has [the fornicator] man of all his evil which he takes [from Lilith and Naamah] under the sun? Since [in Klipoth] there is nothing new [for it is in the Evening] under the [heavenly cycle of the] sun.”
But you may say, I am tired of being a recurrence under the Sun, now I shall be with the Sun. So, you have to arise up the mountain of God. This is what Moses did. And it is what all of us should do! It is not a matter of believing, it is a matter of working with the solar light, which is Christ.
The Lamb of God
This Da Vinci modified painting says on it, Salvator mundi, “savior of the world.” Why Jesus with horns? Well, it shows only two, but the Book of Revelation says he has seven!
“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” - Revelation 5: 6
Jesus has only two here in order to point out that the actual incarnation of the Son of Man is from the sign of Aries, the Ram. The lamb astrologically belongs to the sign of Aries. Iōannēs saw in the very beginning of the Book of Revelation a lamb with seven horns. Subsequently, the Book of Revelation mentions the lamb many times, referring to the incarnated Christ. It is because in the end times of this Aryan race, the lamb is working with Aries, the ram, which is Geburah-El or Gabriel in Yesod incarnating into Mary, Malkuth, the ewe. This is the lamb, the Salvator working as a warrior, because Geburah-El is the warrior, the fifth Sun or Spirit according to the prophecies, because the seven horns of the lamb are the seven cosmic rays or the seven metallic forces: Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Michael, Samael, Zachariel, and Oriphiel.
“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.” - Revelation 5: 12
We have to raise the power of the lamb. Remember, these are horns of a ram and not of a goat, which are different.
“When the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:” - Matthew 25: 31-34, 41
Remember the shepherds that were in the fields on the time of Jesus' birth, dealing with sheep. That is why Jesus is called the shepherd, because he is a ram. It is the Lord of the End that comes like a ram, a fighter, of the forces of Mars. Listen:
“Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the East (Tiphereth), and shineth even unto the West (Malkuth); so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.” - Matthew 24: 23-28
This is very clear: that you have to die psychologically. Remember the seven utterances on cross related to the annihilation of the ego, your defects, and vices. The work of Alchemy, to destroy a psychological ego, a sin, defect, vice, is very difficult. It is accompanied with prayer, with repentance; if you are not truly repentant, the forgiveness does not come. Forgiveness is related to Karma. But when we comprehend an ego, the only one who can destroy an ego is Apollo, the angel of the Abyss, Apollyon, the solar light in the center of the Earth and in the center of our sexual energy.
Let us transmute the sexual force so that Apollo, the king of Tiphereth, the Christic solar force, as Apollyon will destroy your ego and thus purify your psyche. Apollo, the Sun, is the angel of the Abyss and not a demon of the Abyss. We like locusts are the demons of the Abyss. But if we apply the forces of Apollo, Apollyon, the destroyer, then we will purify ourselves until only the light of Apollo the Sun shines in us.
Understand what is written, because the Book of Revelation is very cryptic. There are many explanations about it, because every statement in Kabbalah is explained on different levels.
The Master Huiracocha said:
“Whosoever knows, the Word gives power to. No one has uttered it, no one will utter it, except the one (Solomon, Soliman, the solar man) in whom the Word is incarnated. The substance of the Word is power, is omnipotence.”
So the light of the Lord is related to the magnetism of the Earth. The Earth has also that force. The elemental Earth has its king, who is Melchizedek. Let us finish with the following prayer in order to understand what Christ is in the very center of the Earth. Prayer to Changam, Melchizedek:
“Oh invisible King, Who, taking the earth as a support, didst furrow the abysses to fill them with Thine omnipotence; Thou Whose name doth shake the vaults of the world, Thou Who causest the seven metals to flow through the veins of the rock, monarch of the seven lights, rewarder of the subterranean toilers, lead us unto the desirable air and to the realm of splendour (Tiphereth). We watch and we work unremittingly, we seek and we hope, by the twelve stones of the Holy City (the twelve zodiacal signs, the twelve tribes of Israel), by the hidden talismans, by the pole of the lodestone which passes through the center of the world! Saviour, Saviour, Saviour, have pity on those who suffer, expand our hearts, detach and elevate our minds, enlarge our entire being! O stability and motion! O day clothed with night! O darkness veiled by splendour! O master Who never keepest back the wages of Thy labourers! O silver whiteness! O golden splendour! O crown of living and melodious diamonds! Thou Who wearest the heaven on Thy finger like a sapphire ring, Thou Who conceallest under the earth, in the stone kingdom, the marvellous seed of stars, live, reign, be the eternal dispenser of the wealth whereof thou hast made us the wardens!”
