In the book of Revelation we read:
“He that overcomes, and keeps my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations [Goyim גוים]... And I will give him [the glorified son of the dawn - Hillel Ben Shachar - הילל בן־שחר] the morning star.” - Revelation 2: 26, 28
If you look at the image above, you will find the Greek Cross super-imposed over the Tree of Life.
On this next image we see a beautiful painting of Eros-Lucifer, the morning star, throwing his arrows of light at the world. In this lecture we will explain what Christ and Eros-Lucifer mean in Gnosticism, in accordance with scriptures of the Bible.
We have wrote the word goyim גוים in Hebrew, a word that in the Bible is always translated as “nations.” The singular form of goyim is goy [גוי], which is a word usually given to those who are not Jewish, Hebrew. We agree with this definition, but only from the esoteric, alchemical, kabbalistic point of view, because if you rearrange the letters of the word goy, you find the word ego (יגו). This is precisely what needs to be understood by the word goy (יגו), goyim (גוים), which is that it means ego or egos. In reality, all the people of the earth, including those of the state of Israel, have ego within and that ego is precisely what the Bible refers to as goyim [גוים] or “nations.” Our towns, nations, countries, etc are formed by a collection of egos. It is written:
“We must destroy Babylon the Great, the mother of all fornication and abominations of the Earth. Obviously, Babylon is our psychological city, populated by the psychic aggregates (the goyim גוים) that we carry within our interior.” - The Gnostic Bible, The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor
So, the former biblical statements relate with ego; those egos that we need to control with the power of Lucifer. It is also written:
“And יהוה said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.
And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.
And יהוה said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it (the serpent) by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand: That they may believe that יהוה אלהים Jehovah Elohim of their fathers, the Elohim אלהים of Abraham, the Elohim אלהים of Isaac, and the Elohim אלהים of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.” - Exodus 4: 2-5
The Zohar states:
“This (serpent) refers to the rod of Elohim that was delivered into his hand. As it is written:
“And Moses said unto Yoshuah, `Choose for us Anashim אנשים, and go out, fight against Amalek עמלק: to-morrow I am standing on the top of the hill, and the rod (serpent) of Elohim אלהים in my hand.” - Exodus 17: 9
“And this (serpent) is the same rod that was created (when the sun rose for the first time in his spine) at the twilight of the Shabbat eve and was engraved with the Holy Name by a Divine Shaping.”
So, “The rod of Moses symbolizes also the serpent or tempter, who (as Satan) was the cause of the captivity of (the archetypes of) Israel (because of the bestial orgasm).” - Zohar
This is why Isaiah wrote:
“How art thou fallen from heaven, (Hillel Ben Shachar - הילל בן־שחר) O glorified, son of the dawn! how art thou cut down to the earth (Malkuth), which didst weaken the nations (Goyim גוים)!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God (El אל, Chesed): I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High (Elion עליון).
Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the abyss.” - Isaiah 14: 12-15
Hillel הילל, “glorified,” is translated into Lucifer which is a Latin word that relates to the light. “Luce” is light and “fer” means carrier. From that word “fer” comes the English word “ferry.” So, when you say “Lucifer,” you are addressing the carrier of the light, which is something very profound. This word is not addressing, as people think, a certain personage or angel that fell from heaven and that is controlling all the nations of the Earth; because as was stated, the staff of Moses represents that serpent or tempter who unleashed all of the plagues upon the people of the Earth—which is symbolized in the bible by Egypt, or Mizrahim [מצרים] in Hebrew—that we need to comprehend.
In the graphic above, you again find Christ, crucified upon the Tree of Life. In the first triangle of the Tree of Life, you find the three letters of the tetragrammaton, the sacred name of Elohim: Iod-Hei-Vav [יהו]. The last Hei ה of the tetragrammaton is placed in the Ain Soph. This is to show you how these letters,Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei [יהוה] are related with the light, because Ain Soph Aur means “the limitless light” and Eros-Lucifer is the carrier of such light. Sometimes, we state that this carrier is fire; it is logical that the carrier of the light is the fire. Fire and light are two phenomena from the same thing (דבר Dabar, the Logos), that is why we can also translate Lucifer as Luci, light and Fer, fire.
As you can see, we are addressing the first triangle of the Tree of Life together with the Ain Soph. It is very remarkable to see that the tetragrammaton, the holy name of Elohim, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei [יהוה], is also hidden in the word Jehudah [יהודה], which is related to the solar light. If, before the last Hei [ה] of the tetragrammaton, you add the letter Daleth [ד], then you find that it is no longer Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei [יהוה] but is now Iod-Hei-Vav-Daleth-Hei [יהודה], the word Jehudah or Judah. This Jehudah is precisely that tribe of Israel related to the constellation of Leo, the solar logos, the king star, which Samael Aun Weor addresses as follows:
“Authentic Jews are only the children of the lion from the tribe of Judah [יהודה], meaning, the Christified Ones.” - Samael Aun Weor
This is why, on top of the cross of the crucifixion, above the star of David in Daath, is written INRI, which is Latin for: Ignis Natura Renovatur Integra, the fire renews nature integrally. The Bible translates this as “Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum” which in English means, “Jesus of Nazareth, King of Judah.” We did not say “King of the Jews (Christified Ones)” but “King of Judah” because that tribe of Judah is related precisely to the crown or first triangle of the Tree of Life, to the Ain Soph Aur, which is above the first triangle, related with the Absolute. The letters Hei and Daleth at the end of the word Jehudah [יהודה] hide a certain meaning related with the light of the Ain Soph Aur and Daath, that we have to comprehend and understand.
When we talk about the light, it is good, as the Zohar explains, for us to imagine the light of a candle. When you observe the light of a candle, you’ll see that at the very bottom of the flame there is a dark-bluish color. This is that dark fire, which is consuming the candle. The dark fire is melting the wax, while the white flame above does not consume anything, but only gives light.
In that blue, yellow, white flame we see the symbol of the trinity that we call Father-Son-Holy Spirit, Kether-Chokmah-Binah, which are represented by the first three letters of the holy name Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei [יהוה]; the dark flame is represented by the final Hei. This four-lettered name, translated as Jehovah but which we call Iod-Havah, is the Glorian. The Glorian is formed precisely by the dark-blue, yellow and bright-white of the flame. Moses addressed the Israelites in the Bible and said:
“For Jehovah Elohim (כי יהוה אלהים) is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.” - Deuteronomy 4: 24
Alchemically, that consuming fire or unquenchable fire, which is precisely the dark part of the flame, is produced by (ki כי), two hands, husband and wife. As you can see in the candle, the dark of the flame is melting, consuming the wax, while the white is not consuming anything, it is just giving light; that light is the trinity that is formed by the first three letters of the holy name of God. Indeed the name of God has only three different letters because the second (Hei) is repeated as the fourth. In it you see that hidden meaning of Lucifer. Sometimes, this letter Hei is replaced by the letter Daleth. Daleth is the fourth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which is the letter that we use in order to write Daath [דעת] knowledge, the mystery of the Tree of Good and Evil.
In the Gnostic Bible, Master Aberamentho addresses the three primary forces as the word Yew. You can say Yew or Jew [יהו], it is same thing. This word refers to the tribe of Judah. What we need to grasp from this is that those monads that reach the realization of the light within themselves are monads that belong to the tribe of Judah. In Kabbalah, we study many tribes or hierarchies related with the flame of the Lord. but we have to understand that the highest tribe of all the hierarchies, which is represented by the 12 zodiacal signs or 12 tribes of Israel, is the tribe of Judah (Leo) which is placed on top. This is because those beings are, as explained in the previous lecture, related with the Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya, and Nirmanakyaya bodies, even with the Adikaya bodies. Bodies that are built related with light that allows them to dwell within the absolute abstract space. In other words, to allow them to dwell within the dark light. That light that consumes sinners in hell.
If you imagine that light, you will see that it is consuming matter of any type in Klipoth, which is called Saul or Sheol [שאול] in Hebrew. That is why when religions speak about hell, inferno, describing a place with fire, we have to understand that it is addressing the black fire that consumes, that melts any type of matter. The white flame, that white light of the Lord is the one that gives life and rises and transforms the entirety of the Tree of Life in each one of us.
The golden cross behind the Tree of Life is the Greek Orthodox Cross; it relates to the 10 Sephiroth. At the very bottom is Malkuth, which is at the base of the cross. You see that Christ is crucified and has his feet on Yesod, which is the Sephirah of sex, the sexual force. When someone is working in the christification of himself with the fire of Lucifer—with the staff of Moses, which is fire and light—they find that the most difficult step in this process is the stigmata of the feet on the cross. You see that the right foot is over the left on the cross. That signifies that you have to control the left side of the Tree of Life, related with evil, with the right. That is only possible with the sexual fire.
In many lectures we have stated that Lucifer is related with Eros, the sexual potency. Now, the stigmata related with the hands are not easy, but they are easier than the ones of the feet, because the one in the hands are related with Gedulah and Geburah. These are the two superior aspects of the monad. While, those of the feet are related with the inferior aspects of that monad, which is ourselves; our three brains, namely, intellect, emotion, sex, and our physicality. That is why it is only on the cross that you can ask for annihilation, because God is the consuming fire at the bottom of the flame. This relates to the four bodies of sin.
When you observe the orthodox cross, you see that the last, lowest horizontal beam is always unbalanced, crooked. People wonder, “why did the Greeks or Orthodoxs make the first horizontal beam of the cross on top very well balanced, then the bigger one in the middle related with the monad also horizontal and very well balanced, but the one on the bottom crooked?” When you know Alchemy and Kabbalah, you understand that the most difficult work that we need to perform is related with the kidneys. Of course Hod and Netzach are related with Jezebel, the inferior emotional center and the mind, respectively, but these two Sephiroth also relate to the kidneys, which are those organs that give sexual strength to Yesod.
"Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols [the goyim or egos of the mind]. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he [the glorified son of the dawn - Hillel Ben Shachar - הילל בן־שחר] which searcheth the kidneys and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your (sexual) works." - Revelation 2: 20-23"
The kidneys, in relation to Yesod, are related with the cross of Saint Andrew, which is an “X”; it is upon this cross that you have to suffer all the karma related with lust in order to annihilate it: Kamaduro and Karmasaya. That is why balancing the crooked horizontal line of the Orthodox cross is the most difficult part of the work for any alchemist, because here in the bottom is Hod, Netzach, Yesod, Malkuth, which together are called the four bodies of sin, where we have the ego very strong. This is precisely what all of us are working with, trying to make that beam even, but it takes a lot work.
The last work that the initiate does on the cross is precisely the stigmata of the feet. When those stigmata are received in the astral plane in the internal planes, the initiates are already balanced in Hod and Netzach, which is the most difficult part. This is what the Greek cross symbolizes. Beneath Malkuth is Klipoth, or Sheol.
In the graphic above, we again go into our own particular psychosomatic nature. On top of the Tree of Life you find the words Ain Soph Aur and Glorian which are related with that light, that are described by the following different Hebrew words.
- Pe’er [פאר], in relation with glory or splendor.
- Tiphereth [תפארת], in the middle of the tree of life is also related with splendor, with glory, with light.
- Hod [הוד] The Sephirah Hod is also related with the light, the glorious light.
- Hadar [הדר] Another Hebrew word with the same meaning
- Zohar [זוהר] Splendor
All of these words are synonymous, and are used in the Bible in different ways to specify the different aspects of the light. That is why each part of us as we are, physically speaking, have within the different forces that come from the top of the Tree of Life and mix in Malkuth. Here we wrote along side the seven lower Sephiroth the seven fluids related with such light in our organism:
- Water of Gedulah
- Wine of Geburah
- Milk of Netzach
- Blood of Tiphereth
- Dew of Hod
- Olive Oil of Yesod
- Honey of Malkuth
Water is related with the spirit, or Gedulah in Kabbalah; it is that water in which the brain and spinal medulla are floating, the cerebro-spinal fluid where the forces of spirit are floating, or hovering within us. The wine of Geburah is related with fire. The blood of Tiphereth. Both wine and blood or fire and blood are interrelated. In other lectures we have said that Geburah relates with the force of the systole and diastole of the circulatory system, and that Tiphereth relates with the heart that circulates the blood. Both are related with what we call the monad. In Netzach we find what the Bible calls the milk, which is the secretion of all the glands that we have in our organism, the totality of the endocrine glands. The immune system, the lymphatic fluid are related with the dew of Hod. Then we have the olive oil which is that fluid related with our semen or shemen that the Bible refers to; it is the oil with which we have to be anointed. And the last fluid is honey, related with Malkuth.
All of those fluids are rivers or forces that are mixing in the physical body and giving us different types of energies from the Tree of Life. That is why the book of Ecclesiastes 1: 7 says:
“All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; To the source where the rivers flow, there they flow again. - Ecclesiastes 1: 7
You need to understand that all those rivers that we are talking about also relate to all the fluids that we have in our organism, which come from the Glorian, that light that we are pointing as the Ain Soph Aur. All of us are connected to that. Here, we have to understand that all of those fluids or forces that enter our organisms are related with what we call Lucifer, because all of them carry the light in different modalities. That is why the Zohar states:
“As the light passes from one to the other throne through the various channels between them, it becomes more powerful and stronger in its circulatory course, similar to the blood in the veins of the body. Such is the region on high that gives rise to the seven different colors which, in their totality and blending, constitute the great mystery of that unknown something termed light. There are also seven other different colored lights, which, on flowing together and thus becoming blended, form one great ocean of light which then streams forth from its seven different outlets.” – Zohar
The following is quoted from Isaiah:
“And Iod-Havah shall lay waste the tongue of the sea of Egypt (mitzrahim - מצרים), and shall lift up his hand over the river in the strength of his spirit: and he shall strike it in the seven rivers, so that men may pass through it in their shoes.” - Isaiah 11: 15
Isaiah is talking about those alchemists that are working always with all of these fluids or rivers which the master Solomon addresses in Ecclesiastes. The Zohar continues:
“Each of the seven outlets or streams becomes divided and forms into seven reservoirs, and each of these into the source or fount of seven rivers and which subdivide again and form seven brooklets; thus forming a vast circulatory system by which the waters of each separate and then meet again and become blended together." – Zohar
When you read this passage of the Zohar, if you do not know Alchemy, you might wonder “what is all of this?” When it is said “from one to the other throne through the various channels between them it becomes more powerful and stronger in its circulatory course”; What is that? What throne is the Zohar speaking about? When you study Alchemy and Kabbalah, you understand that the throne of Chesed, the spirit, which is also called Gedulah, is the cerebrospinal or central nervous system, the brain and the medulla. That is why also the Zohar states that when genesis says “and a river came out of Eden and parted into four heads” all of those four heads and the river are related with the Sephirah Chesed or Gedulah. If you analyze this alchemically, you understand that the throne of God is the cerebrospinal nervous system, and our physical body. And when you are united, sexually speaking, with another throne—that is, when husband and wife are united, because it is only through the sexual organs that the two thrones can unite—then you understand what the Zohar says. As the light passes from one to the other throne, it is an interchanging in the sexual act of the forces of the rivers that the physical body has, in both men and women.
The only channel that can interchange that is Yesod, the sexual organ, and all the plexuses that we have in the body. As the sexual act increases, then you find that it becomes stronger in its circulatory course, similar to the blood in the veins of the body. When you know Alchemy and the mystery of Daath, it is easy to understand that the scripture is speaking about the sexual act; that is the only way to interchange the forces between man and woman.
In the former graphic we also wrote, “vanities of vanities, vanity of vanities, the temple is vanity.” The physical body is the vanity that holds all the vanities. That vanity is the breath, because Habel which is translated as Abel, is also that breath. The one that is performing all of this work, interchanging all of this light, is Lucifer, because in the sexual act, he is one that is carrying all of this in our circulatory system, in all the fluids that we have. Lucifer is not what people think, a particular individual; if we say “spirit” from the point of view of the English language, that “spirit” is a fluid that circulates throughout our physicality. That is why that we always state that Lucifer is always tempting people, but people do not know how they are being tempted by Lucifer. So, how does Lucifer tempt people? Behold, Isaiah explains us how; let us read:
“How did you come down from (Iod-Hei הי) heaven, O glorified son of the dawn [הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar]…” Isaiah 14: 12
And Jesus said:
"And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he [הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar] that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man [הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar] be lifted up" - John 3: 13, 14
Hillel הילל contains half of the four-lettered holy name of God (Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה); namely, Iod-Hei (הי), which is father-mother, the two thrones (Lameds לל) in heaven. Hallelujah (הללויה) contains all four letters, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, which together are father-mother and man-woman, which are the two thrones (Lameds לל) on heaven and earth. This is showing us, alchemically speaking, that Hillel הילל becomes the Son of man, the Son of Vav-Hei (וה), man-woman on earth.
Hillel הילל is translated as Lucifer by Jerome of Stridon who was a Latin priest, because in Latin, Lucifer means carrier of the light. It is the same glorified son of the dawn [Hillel Ben Shahar הילל בן־שחר ] or Son of man. How did the glorified son of the dawn (Hillel Ben Shahar הילל בן־שחר) come down from heaven?
Let us explained how. The Tree of Life, from the Ain Soph Aur does glorify one because, as we explained in other lectures, the first emanation of the absolute, of the Ain Soph, is the Ain Soph Aur, the limitless light, which in Greek is called Christ and in Latin, Lucifer. That is why the title of this lecture is “Kristus Lucifer.” But in Hebrew, they call it neither Christ nor Lucifer, but Hillel [הילל], which means “glorified one”; it is the light.
This myth about the descent of Lucifer or Christ into matter has many meanings, one of which, and most commonly understood, relates with the falling of the angels, but this is a separate meaning from that which we are discussing here. The meaning of this symbolism, for the purposes of this lecture, relates with the descent of the light in the initiate, in us.
“How did you come down from heaven, O glorified son of the dawn [הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar]. How art thou hacked down (Nag’daath נגדעת) to the earth,”
The earth, as a symbol, represents out physicality, as well as the planet itself; that light we are talking about emerges from the Absolute, and that is “hacked down” into the ninth sphere, the center of any planet, and any individual physicality, our sex.
“to dominate the Goyim [גוים]!”
The goyim, as we stated, are related with our egos, because if we rearrange the letters of the word goy, we find the word ego (יגו). In this day and age, the word Goyim [גוים] is interpreted as being related with gentiles, in other words, people that do not belong to the Hebrew race. People have this interpretation because they do not know anything about Kabbalah or Alchemy. People think this word is related to race, just as in India where they think that the Brahmans relate to certain sects that follow Brahmanism. This is something different, related to the archetypes. Do not fall into the mistake of thinking that when the Bible speaks about the goyim, it is addressing the “gentiles” as we understand it in today’s terminology. People that do not know anything about esotericism think of the goyim as those who do not belong to the Hebrew race; however, we explain that the goyim that the Bible speaks about are nothing other than our egos.
Only Lucifer can control the ego. When Lucifer enters into our own psyche, a psyche that is filled with lust, pride, anger, vanity, laziness, gluttony, avarice, etc., he becomes Satan. He becomes black like the consuming fire. He is glorified on heaven, but when he enters inside of us, he becomes black. This is what people do not understand.
Some people confuse Lucifer with Satan: they are two different things. Lucifer is pure light when not mingled with our goyim (egos); but, when he enters within, in order to dominate the goyim in any initiate, he becomes black, dark light, like charcoal. That is why Isaiah continues:
“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God [אל].”
El [אל] is the name of God in Chesed. Above our spirit, the monad, is Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei [יהוה]; Lucifer or Hillel [הילל] comes from that height. He exalted himself there, but when he enters into us, he goes down. Isaiah continues:
“I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north”
We always talk about the north, which is above the head in the superior dimensions, the Absolute.
“I will ascend above the Heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Now, thou shall be brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the abyss.” – Isaiah 14: 12-15
Here we find a passage in which Isaiah is addressing the King of Babylon. You might say “Was Sadam Hussain the king of Babylon in past lives?” No. The King of Babylon is somebody that has reached the 5th initiation of major mysteries and become one of the malachim, but yet who still remains with the ego very fat, very alive. When we enter into this path, we become a melek (king), the plural of which is malachim; in other words, a king of Babylon. What Babylon? Our own particular, individual Babylon, Babel. In the book of Isaiah it does not say Babylon but rather Babel בבל. Babel is a tower, the spinal nervous system, where the king is seated, but unfortunately, we have too many goyim within; too many egos.
So, this scripture is addressing an initiate of the 5th initiation of the major mysteries, one who took the direct path and wants to annihilate all the goyim within. Such an individual wants to become an inhabitant of the tribe of Judah, because it is from that height that Lucifer descends. Lucifer or Hillel or Christ belongs to that area of the Tree of Life, the first triangle and the Absolute. It is that very purified light, which for us is dark for us because we cannot see it, but for the Paramarthasatya is radiant. This is precisely what we have to understand.
When that light wants to help any initiate, where does that light enter? Sheol. In many lectures we have explained that the word Sheol [שאול] contains the same letters needed to write the name Saul, the first king of Israel. The symbol of the first king of Israel is the first king that all the archetypes of Israel had when they reached the 5th initiation of major mysteries, which is Saul, Sheol, שאול, Hell.
So, when we understand Kabbalah and Alchemy, we understand that Hillel, Christ, or Lucifer, descends into Sheol, into Saul, because he wants to transform him into David. Sheol or Saul, David, and Solomon represent three processes or transformations that the alchemists passes through when entering into the mysteries of the cross.
If you read the Bible you will see how Saul had many problems with Samuel. Samuel anointed him. Samuel, Shemuel, is related with the name. The word Shem [שם] means, “the name.” Shemuel anointed him and he received the help of Jehovah. Who is Jehovah? That is Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei above. That light that enters from above in order to help, but because he has the ego very alive, he is in trouble and becomes an enemy of David, who is the one that kills Goliath, and destroyed many enemies, alchemically speaking. It is Lucifer who is helping David, helping Samuel and also Solomon. The one that shows us how to do it is Moses, with his staff: when Moses is working with the staff, bringing the plagues of Egypt (or Babylon, same symbol), he is doing it with Lucifer, the serpent, which is that very staff.
“Now, thou shall be brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the abyss.”
This abyss is us, in other words. That is why, when this Lucifer appears to the initiate, to Saul, he appears with a terrible aspect. Why? Because Saul has the ego very alive, and thus that beautiful Lucifer is now Satan. That Satan wants to transform Saul into pure gold and for that he has to tempt him; thus, though in himself he is pure, hebecomes impure, in order to help the initiate. This is why the book of Job explains how Satan is always doing the impossible in order to tempt you because he knows that if you triumph over temptation, he becomes glorious again within you. That process is called the resurrection.
In the graphic below, you find Shiva, Binah in Kabbalah, and above him is his wife, which is the river. In Hebrew, river is Naher [נהר]; sometimes in other verses of the Bible it is called Nahera [נהרה]. When we read the book of the Master Samael Aun Weor, Igneous Rose, we find in it that he explains that Najera-Nahera is the name of the angel that controls the fig tree, which relates to the feminine sexual forces. This is the only way to understand what Naher, the river that comes from Eden, means. In Genesis 2: 10-15 we read:
“And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.' These four heads or channels are symbolized by Chesed (mercy) on the right shoulder of the sephirotic tree of life.” - Zohar
That river is the feminine aspect of the Divine Mother, Binah, that descends from Daath, from heaven, and goes down into Chesed. As the Zohar states “Chesed represents the four rivers of Eden.” In synthesis, in the previous graphic we explained the 7 fluids in the physical body, but now we are going to synthesize them in the four rivers of Eden. The Zohar says “Chesed, the spirit, relates to these four rivers.”
“The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
The Zohar states:
“These are the four heads of the living creatures that carry (in Malkuth) the holy throne - Central Nervous System - and perspire because of the physical exertion (sexual alchemy). The sweat because of the (light and fire) load they carry becomes Naher Di Nur נהר די־נור (lit. river of fire), as it is written: "A fiery stream (Naher Di Nur נהר די־נור) issued and came forth from before him; (Aleph Alephim אלף אלפים) a thousand thousands served him" (Daniel 7:10)” - Zohar
Again, when the man and the woman are united sexually, the first river, Pison, relates to the cerebrospinal fluid in the man and the second river, Gihon, to the fluid of his genitalia. Two rivers, two fluids: the cerebrospinal fluid and the genitalia. These are Pison and Gihon in the man. The other two rivers, Hiddekel and Euphrates, are related with these same two polarities, but in the feminine body. All of these rivers are related to the cerebrospinal nervous system and the genitalia; the fluid that comes from heaven, that river, controls the sexual organs and the spinal column and the brain in both sexes. So, when united in the sexual act, those forces, those energies of the man and woman that descend from heaven intermingle. The one that is giving and taking the fire from heaven, that is stealing the fire from heaven in that sexual act is called Lucifer.
Unfortunately, people ignore who Lucifer is and in the very sexual act, all that fire that Prometheus-Lucifer steals from heaven is spilled in the orgasm, and the couple remains in darkness. But, if you know how to take advantage of the forces of that river, you know that Binah, the Holy Spirit, is the one that controls the waters along with Chesed, the spirit that floats upon the waters of Genesis. This is how you have to see that river, divided in 4 ways in the sexual act, alchemically and kabbalistically.
When you take these symbols superficially, as people do, you will start thinking these rivers are the literal ones found in Asia, and that the garden of Eden was also in Asia. The word Eden means voluptuousness, bliss. That bliss is felt in the very sexual act. That is Eden. But remember that in the moment that you are performing that act, Lucifer, the giver of light, is present. He wants to make of you a radiant being, but in order to become that, you have to overcome temptation. That is why it is written:
“And Iod-Havah Elohim took Adam, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” - Genesis 2: 10-15
From where did Iod-Havah Elohim take Adam—Adam represents the true man, the true human being ? He took him from the rivers, from the four rivers. This is how you have to create the solar bodies, the Christic bodies, the electronic bodies, which are pure energy. It is through these bodies that you can rise and approach God, because God is a consuming fire down but not up.
That light envelops you when you have solar bodies. That is why, when Moses came down from Sinai, he was radiant because he built for himself a solar Astral, Mental, and Causal body. So Moses is that Adam that Iod-Havah Elohim took from the four rivers. Those four rivers are synthesized in Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, the tetragrammaton. These four rivers are also fire-air-water-earth, the four elements that we have to control in order to become a true human being, like the human being you see in the graphic worshiping Iod-Havah Elohim, Binah, Shiva. The man here represents that same symbol of Moses, but in a Hindu manner.
Now, when Lucifer was in Eden before falling, Ezekiel in 28: 12,13,16, represented in the graphic above by William Blake, says:
“Thou art [O Lucifer] sealing up a measurement, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. In Eden, the garden of God, thou hast been, every precious stone thy covering, ruby, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle, and gold, the workmanship of thy tabrets, and of thy pipes, in thee in the day of thy being produced, have been prepared. By the abundance of thy merchandise they have filled thy midst with violence, and thou dost sin, and I thrust thee from the mount of God, and I destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.” – Ezekiel 28: 12, 13, 16
Ezekiel is addressing Christ, Kristus-Lucifer. A being of great beauty,that becomes black in us. That is why when we talk about Lucifer or Kristus-Lucifer, we feel sad and pain in our hearts when we hear fanatics from different religions, different sects of Christianity, sometimes Judaism and Islam, that curse Lucifer, ignoring that he is precisely the great sacrifice of the light coming down into you, in order to transform you.
Let us now talk about how Lucifer enters into the initiate when he takes the direct path. We have taken a passage from the Bible, and above placed a graphic of Joseph and the angel Gabriel. In Matthew it states:
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.” – Matthew 1: 18 - 2: 23
The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is hidden in these verses. When, as alchemists, we enter into our wife, we meet her not, and our wife meets us not; only the fornicators meet or know their wives, and the wives their husbands in the sexual act; just as in Genesis, when Adam knew Eve, she begot Cain, and he was a killer. The clue would have been for Adam knowing her not in the sexual act; meaning, to penetrate her and not to spill the river of Eden. This is what it is to be in Eden, but without polluting the waters of Eden.
When the initiate reaches the 5th initiation of the Major Mysteries, and has created the Solar Astral, Mental, Causal bodies, he is a new-born, a new human being in the true sense of the word. Then, if his monad, his inner spirit elects to take the direct path, by means of sexual alchemy the angel Gabriel comes and fecundates the initiate with solar light. However, if the initiate does not take the direct path, then, the sexual act is prohibited for that one. Some other initiates who renounced Nirvana, like the Dali Lama and Krishnamurti, decided not to take a wife and that is their will. In this case, Joseph, upon reaching the 5th initiation, wants to serve the Lord as a single priest, no longer having a wife. But in the end he discovers that his Divine Mother, Mary, in the internal planes is already with child. It is not Mary in the physical plane that is with child; alchemically, the one that is with child is Mary, the Divine Mother of Joseph. In other words, she is pregnant with Kristus Lucifer. And Joseph took unto him his wife (named Mary): “And knew her not” till she had (through sexual alchemy) brought forth [Hillel Ben Shahar הילל בן־שחר] her firstborn son (of the dawn): and he called his name Jesus.”
In order to understand this, let us once again explain the symbol of Lucifer, carrier of the light. Mary, the Divine Mother, is carrying the light. She is carrying Christ. In other words, she is becoming Lucifer, a carrier of the light, of Jesus. And he says, do not be afraid to receive your wife Mary. Why? In Kabbalah, when you say the holy name of God, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, you speak the letter Hei twice. Why is this? Well, in my case for instance, I am a male, my first Hei, Iod-Hei, is in heaven: my Divine Mother. The second Hei is my wife. And everything I see my wife doing in relation with the work, relates also to my Divine Mother. That is something that alchemists should learn. So Mary is the name of Joseph’s wife (the second Hei) physically speaking, but Mary is also the name of the wife of the Holy Spirit (the first Hei) above: Abba-Elohim is Iod and Aima-Elohim is Hei, in Kabbalah.
So, Aima-Elohim is pregnant because she is virgin, pure. And this is why, the angel Gabriel says: “Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take (through sexual alchemy) unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is (and will be) conceived in her is (and will be) of the Holy Ghost.” The Holy Ghost. Binah, works through Gabriel, Geburah, in Malkuth; yet above, in Daath, the Holy Ghost, Binah, works with Mary, the Divine Mother.
In other words, keep practicing sexual magic and purify yourself more and more, with your wife. And do not worry that Mary, the Divine Mother, is pregnant in the light, because through her the light will rise within you, and you will create those bodies of light. The light of Lucifer, the light of Christ will ascend through your seven medullas, which esoterically speaking, we have 7 of. Those 7 medullas are the seven horns of the lamb that the Book of Revelation talks about; those 7 medullas or horns relate to the sexual strength, virility, sexual power, which is Lucifer. That is why horns are always the symbol of sexual purity in the angels, in the gods, but in the demons those horns symbolize sexual impurities. The horns of the demons grow in accordance with the evil they perform, but the horns of Moses, the horns of the lamb which are 7, are horns of chastity. We know that in this day and age certain doctors of Taoism utilize the horns of deer and other animals in order to make medicines to give sexual strength. This is because horns capture the sexual force in goats, rams, etc and this is known by anyone who works in Alchemy. This is why Lucifer is symbolized by a goat, because that animal has a lot of power in the horns and sexual organs. Behold here, Gabriel is that angel who announces that pregnancy.
In the graphic above, we find Venus and Mars of the Grecco-Roman mythology. Venus represents the Divine Mother. Remember that Venus is the planet that appears before the sun rises, the morning star. That is why Venus is called carrier of the light. It carries, it precedes the light, the solar light; that is why Freya, Friday, is holy. Behold that in Judaism, they celebrate Friday at the end of the week; Freya, is precisely the end of the week and the beginning of the Sabbath. This is the force of Venus rising in Saturn, the Sabbath. Saturn is Binah.
Of course, the witches’ Sabbath also celebrates that. They take advantage of the sexual strength, but in the opposite, negative way. There is the Holy Sabbath and the witches’ Sabbath and they are celebrated at the same time, Friday night. Friday is also a holy day for the Muslims. Everything relates to the same alchemical meaning that we are giving here, in relation with Lucifer.
Another way we can look at this is that, esoterically speaking, we know that the days of the week as we understand them are incorrect. The correct order of days follows the esoteric, astrological order of the planets:
As you can see from this, just as in the dawn, the morning star, Venus, directly proceeds the rising of the Sun; Christ (the Solar Logos) raises in the initiate as a consequence of, and thanks to Lucifer (the morning star; the bearer of the light).
Venus is the carrier of the light. Gabriel in Hebrew is Geburah-el גבריאל. He is the angel of Geburah, and the angel of Geburah is Mars, fire. The angel of the fire, of Geburah, descends through the left side of the Tree of Life, into Yesod. Yesod is controlled by the moon. That is why it is called Gabriel, or the male force of Geburah in other words. Our moon (that is controlling Sabbath, whether positively or negatively) receives the forces of Geburah, Mars, the fire. That fire goes into Yesod is what we call Gabriel. That is why we put Mars there, because he is the warrior. The forces of Samael, Mars, are the ones that come to the moon; remember that Yesod is controlled by Scorpio, and Scorpio is controlled by Mars, by Samael, but Scorpio, related with Yesod, is related with the moon with Gabriel. In the gospel of Luke 1: 26-35 it is stated:
“And in the sixth (the lovers) month the angel Gabriel [גבריאל] was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth-“
That is an allusion to the physical body.
“to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary (RAM-IO).”
That virgin is inside of each one of us. If she reaches that level of the 5th initiation and then is visited by the angel Gabriel.
“And the angel came in unto her and said...”
When you read this in other parts of the Bible it is written that Judah entered into a prostitute. You may ask, “how is this angel entering into her?” Alchemically, we understand this to mean that force enters into her own womb and places the fire of the glorified son of the dawn [הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar] there. But, that angel Geburah-el, Gabriel, is beneath Binah on the left side of the Tree of Life, and that Binah is the Holy Spirit, Jehovah Elohim and that is why he says:
“Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary (Divine Mother Kundalini): for thou hast found favor with God (Jehova Elohim Binah). And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Yeshua, savior. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” – Luke 1:26-33
What is the house of Jacob? The house of Jacob is the Sephirah Tiphereth, where Yeshua unites with the human soul. Joseph, the initiate in the physical plane, is the human soul in Malkuth, which is Mary, his wife. Mary, the Divine Mother, also symbolizes a woman-spouse in the physical plane that internally receives the son of God; that son of God is Lucifer, the glorified son of the dawn [Hillel Ben Shahar הילל בן־שחר],that son of god is Kristus-Lucifer, Christ, the Messiah in other words. Mary as a woman is a vestal, anointed sexually, but this anointment is given by the angel from Geburah, the angel Gabriel in Yesod.
This means that when there is a sexual chaste union of spouses, the Divine Mother inside of each of them becomes pregnant with the Lord, the glorified son of the dawn [Hillel Ben Shahar הילל בן־שחר]. This is why that child inside will unfortunately be born in a stable or into an ocean of animal egos, which in Kabbalah are called, goyim. The first danger that appears for that infant, the son of the dawn, is Herod who wants to kill him. That Herod is your mind. So, you have to be careful to keep your Lord safe inside of you, in order for him to spiritually grow. He grows by rising the serpents of light and by annihilating the egos or goyim in each of the seven levels of your seven bodies. Christ, the glorified son of the dawn [Hillel Ben Shahar הילל בן־שחר] is the lamb of God that erases the sins of the world. This is why you see Venus and Mars here; it is the union of Venus-Tiphereth with Mars-Geburah, Gabriel in other words. That union or mixture of forces helps Jacob-Israel, which is the symbol of all of the archetypes that are slaves of sin and that inhabit Malkuth-Egypt. Thus, at that moment the king is not called Herod but Saul. Whether you call it Saul or Herod the king, it is the same thing; it is the King of Babylon or Babel, your sinful soul.
“Then said Mary unto the angel: How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”
In this example, a woman asks how can she be with a child when she practices sexual magic? Sheis not practicing the sexual act as all common, ordinary women do, that fornicate and reach the orgasm. She is a vestal of the temple, is what she is saying.
“And the angel answered and said unto her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee”;
In Hebrew, that ghost is Shaddai (שדי) the Holy Spirit, Binah, in Yesod, sex. The third aspect of the first triangle of the Tree of Life comes to her through the angel Gabriel.
“and the power of the Highest (Elion עליון) shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called [הילל בן־ עליון Hillel Ben Elion] the Son of (the Highest) God.” Luke 1:34-35
This is how the messiah enters into the initiate. This is how Moses receives the staff of power, the staff which in his medulla is the same tempter. As you see, the same angel Gabriel that appears to Mary appears to Joseph, to Mohammed, etc. Geburah-El is the sexual strength, the fire of Mars in your soul. The whole work that the incarnated Lucifer or Kristus Lucifer is going to perform, within the alchemists, is marvelous, grandiose.
However, to those who fornicate, it is written:
"And (because of the orgasm) they [the goyim גוים, egos of lilith] were both thievish (ערומים Arumim), the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.... Because, the (kundabuffer-tempting) serpent was more thievish (ערום Arum) in every (intellectual) demonic-beast (חית השדה) of [Yesod, sex] which Iod-Havah Elohim had made. – Genesis 2: 25 & 3: 1"
All the Goyim, all those people, those nations, those egos inside, who fornicate, want always to kill the Lord, and this is what they do in this day and age, all the fornicators, that hypocritically follow the dead letter of the Bible. They are demons who curse Lucifer, ignoring that without the descent of Lucifer or Kristus Lucifer, the sexual creative force, into our sexual waters, we cannot perform anything spiritually. This is why is is written:
“And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as Iod-Havah had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.” - Exodus 7: 10-12
The Zohar states:
“The demon is like Moses' staff that turns from a staff into a snake and from a snake into a staff. So does the demon turn from a demon into an angel and from an angel into a demon, according to man's (sexual) deeds.”
“They (the demons) are the students of the Law (Dharma) that know what was and what will be. They (their physicality) have their form on earth, being philosophers, astrologers of Israel, who know what was and what will be the signs on the sun and moon and their eclipses and each star and constellation; in this way they know what is seen in the world.
Some of them, are like (fornicator) beasts that increase and multiply like animals, and their form below is ignorant people, who, as the sages of the Doctrine (משנה Mishnah) explained, are vermin and whose daughters (breaths נשמה Neshamah) are abominable. Of their daughters (נשמה Neshamah, souls) it says, "Cursed be he (the alchemist) that lies (fornicates) with any manner of (intellectual) beast" (Deuteronomy 27:21). They hate the Law, (Dharma)’s students, sages of the Doctrine (משנה Mishnah), who are veritable ministering angels. For that reason the sages of the Doctrine (משנה Mishnah) explained about man that if he is as "a messenger of Jehovah Tzabaoth (יהוה־צבאות)" ("For the priest's lips should keep - Daath דעת - knowledge" - Malachi 2:7), one should seek the Law out of his mouth. Otherwise, one must not seek the Law (Dharma) out of his mouth.” - Zohar
Neshamah נשמה is that fraction of soul that is trapped within the goyim גוים or bestial egos.
איך נפלת משמים הילל בן־שחר
“Quomodo cecidisti de caelo glorifico fili aurorae.
How did you descend from heaven, glorious son of the dawn”
The following verses of the Bible answers why the glorious son of the dawn descends into the waters of the River Jordan:
“And the Spirit of Elohim (Chesed) moved upon the face of the waters. And Elohim said: Let there be light: and there was light” - Genesis 1: 2, 3, in others words, “And Elohim said in Latin: “Fiat luxifer et facta est luxifer.”
“The spirit Sapphire (ספיר) includes the spirit Levana (לבנה) within him and has light that goes up and comes down. His light never stops shining, as the light of the sun within the water.” - Zohar
Now, how does the Spirit of Elohim (Chesed), transforms the initiate, who is practicing sexual Alchemy? The former verse of Genesis explains how:
Understand that the waters that we are talking about here are the waters of Chesed because Chesed is water, the cerebro-spinal fluid and also the sexual fluid. Another example:
“And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God (Binah) descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is [Kristus-Lucifer] my beloved Son (of the dawn), in whom I am well pleased.” - Matthew 3: 16, 17
Chesed, the Spirit of God, is addressing Lucifer, the first born of the dawn, from heaven; “This is my beloved son Lucifer, and I am pleased with him, he sacrificing himself, and entering into this prophet.” This prophet is called Aberametho, Master Jesus, Yeshuah. That event happened to the Master Jesus, the master John the Baptist, master Moses, Abraham, Buddha, and all those masters that reached that level. This is why John the Baptist forbad Kristus-Lucifer, saying:
“I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?” - Matthew 3: 14
“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The Spirit blows where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” - John 3: 5-8
This is something internal. In the physical plane, the only thing you see is the physical body of the prophet who is achieving the transformation in himself. That is why as you see Jesus is being baptized by John the Baptist; this relates to the Sephirah Yesod. John the Baptist, in this case, symbolizes the true man or the true human being who is an alchemist, and Jesus represents Yeshuah, the fire of Lucifer, the Solar Logos descending into him as a savior. And that is why we find in the book of Job 1:6-12:
“Now there happened in [מקוה mikveh] that day (in the baptism) that the Beni Elohim (children of God) came to present themselves before Iod-Havah, and Satan came also among them.”
You see? Lucifer was already in Jesus, in the initiate, and was therefore no longer Lucifer because he was mingled with the ego, so he was black, he was Satan. And he says, my goodness…This is an initiate of the 5th initiation of the Major Mysteries in chastity, but with a lot of ego still. And that is precisely the spirit of the Height that descends.
“And Iod-Havah said unto Satan”
Not unto Lucifer, but Satan, because that force has already become mingled with the egos, with the goyim.
“Where do you come from? Then Satan answered Iod-Havah, and said, ‘From going to and fro in the earth (in the horizontal beam of the cross), and from walking up and down (from the North to the South, the vertical line of the cross) in it’. And Iod-Havah said unto Satan, ‘Hast thou considered my servant Job [Jesus, Mohammed, etc.], for there is no one like him on the earth, a man without sin and upright, fearing Elohim and keeping himself far from evil?’ Then Satan answered Iod-Havah (Binah), and said, ‘Does Job [Jesus, Mohammed, etc.] fear Elohim for nothing? Have not you made a fence around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will curse thee to thy face.’ And Iod-Havah said unto Satan, ‘Behold, all that he [Job, Jesus, Mohammed, etc.] has is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand.’ So Satan went forth from the presence of Iod-Havah .” - Job 1: 6-12
He went forth to Jesus, to Moses, to Buddha, to any initiate that reaches that level.
“And immediately the Spirit drives him into the wilderness. And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.” - Mark 1: 12, 13
This is what the Bible says. After the baptism, after that transformation, the spirit takes him and says “Ok, do your work: this individual, my son wants to become a Jew, an initiate from the tribe of Judah, the highest level on the Tree of Life, so tempt him. Show him his defects and vices until he destroys all of them within 40 days.” These 40 days are the very same 40 years of the Hebrews in the wilderness; it is the same symbol.The 40 days of the ark of Noah is the same meaning. It is the letter Mem [מ], the waters. So, Lucifer tempts him. Lucifer appears as the angel of Geburah in the painting above.
Lucifer is the light, the light that becomes the tempter, Satan, and that works within the initiate. That is why you see a mixture of light and darkness within any initiate that is still in the process of being purified; this is written about in the Bible and other sacred books. Even in the Popul Vuh, but with different symbols, yet always the same archetypes and the same meaning. Behold here written in the Gospel of Luke:
“And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ [Kristus Lucifer], or not;”
Who is John? John is the true man, with the seven solar bodies. He is I-E-O-U-A-M-S, Ioames, Johannes; the seven vowels. Is he the Christ? No. He is the one that made Christ become Satan. In other words, Christ descends into the initiate (John), one who has the Solar Bodies, in order to liberate him, because he still has the ego. Thus, Christ, that light is pure, but because of the ego of the initiate, now it is Satan, it is black.
“John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water letting by [המים מתח השמים אל־מום אחד] the waters under the heavens be collected – better said: transmuted - unto one place]; but one mightier than I comes, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.” - Luke 3: 15-17
He addresses the initiate. You ask the initiate, are you Christ? Then the initiate says, as the Master Samael said at one time, “I am not going to say that I am Christ, that would be a blasphemy against my savior, but I am telling you, he is within me, and he is saving me, and he is showing me my defects. He is Prometheus, Lucifer, Christ, or whatever you want to call it. He sacrifices himself and is crucified in me, for my own good. He is fire.” This is how we understand the RA and the “X” in the tree of life. The whole work that is performed is performed by Kristus Lucifer.
In the Gnostic Bible, we find this beautiful section that the Master also wrote in Parsifal Unveiled, where he says:
“Then Jesus, the Divine Great Gnostic Priest, chanted a delightful song of praise in the Great Name and Jesus said unto his disciples: Draw near unto me! And they drew near unto him.”
How do you draw near unto the Lord? By practicing sexual magic, because he is the power in the sexual force, he is the savior.
“Then he turned himself towards the four corners of the world-”
North, South, East, West; Yod-Hei-Vav-Hei; The four elements.
“and he extended his quiet look and uttered the profoundly sacred name ‘YEW’ [יהו]”
The holy trinity and the first triangle of the Tree of Life.
“He blessed them and breathed into their eyes. And Jesus exclaimed unto them: Look above [toward the middle of your eyebrows]! Now ye are clairvoyant! Then, they raised their eyes to [the midbrow] where Jesus was pointing and [with their Ajna Chakra] saw a great, exceedingly mighty Light which no human being in the world can describe.”
He breathed into their eyes. What eyes? The pineal gland, the pituitary gland. The two eyes inside, which are connected to the physical sight, the two eyes that we have in our head. He says “look above.” How can we look above? When you look above, you cross your eyes and focus in the center of your brow. When you look above, then your third eye is awakened. This is not what people think when they read this; they think it means to look to the clouds. In the clouds there is nothing, just clouds, but above your head is the triangle, Kether-Chokmah-Binah, related with your brain. When you look up there, then you are clairvoyant because he blew the fire there. It is easy to comprehend these symbols when you know Alchemy.
“The Great Priest Jesus said unto them anew: Look away out of that mighty Light [of Kether in your brain] and look towards the other side [the heart, kingdom of Chokmah]. Then, they saw a mighty Fire [Chokmah], Water [Chesed], Wine [Geburah] and Blood [Tiphereth].”
What is the other side? If I am looking up to my brain, the other side of my brain is the opposite, it is my physicality in other words, my inner bodies. There I see Fire, Water, Wine and Blood related to the monad. Below that is Yesod.
“And Jesus proceeded and said unto his disciples: Amen, I say unto you: I [Kristus-Lucifer] have brought nothing into the world when I came, save the Fire [from Chokmah], the Water [from Chesed], the Wine [from Geburah] and the Blood of Redemption [from Tiphereth].”
From the Monad, because the Lucifer enters into the monad. When he enters, he enters and mingles with the monad which is related with those elements Fire, Water, Wine and Blood. And from there he enters into our physicality.
“I [Kristus-Lucifer] have brought the Fire [of Chokmah] and the Water [of Chesed] out of the region of the Light of lights, from [Kether] there where the Treasury of the Light is found.”
The Ain Soph Aur, because Christ, Lucifer descends from that Height, into us.
“And I [Kristus-Lucifer] have brought the Wine [of Geburah] and the Blood [of Tiphereth] out of the region of Barbelo [Ain Soph Aur]. And after a little while, [Kether] the Father sent me [Binah] the Holy Spirit in the form of a White Dove. But hear me: The Fire, the Water and the Wine are for the purification and forgiveness of sins.” - Parsifal Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor
When you mix them in your sexual act, in your alchemical work, then you ask for the annihilation of that wax that you have within, because the black aspect of the flame will melt your ego and make of yourself pure light. That is precisely the work that Lucifer or Kristus Lucifer does. It was a great tragedy that the Catholic Church pronounced themselves against Lucifer in the middle ages. They did so because they were celibate, they did not understand the alchemical work, so they read everything literally. That is how they came to the conclusion that Lucifer was a bad thing. Now, everybody believes Lucifer to be evil. Not even as Satan is bad when he is working in the initiate, because he wants to become brightened again, very bright, he wants to glow inside of us. But if we continue with the ego alive, he will be black and that is precisely that great sacrifice of Prometheus, who sacrificed himself and became black, chained to the rock of sex.
"Otherwise, how could virtues spring forth from within us, if temptation did not exist?" - Samael Aun Weor
Observe the Grecco-Roman mythology: Prometheus is the same Lucifer who becomes black, Satan inside of us. Master Samael said:
“Those who 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.” One who whitewashes the devil, turning it into its resplendent and primogenitary state, one who dies in oneself, here and now, liberates the chained Prometheus. Thus, Lucifer-Prometheus pays the individual with abundance because he is a colossus with power over the heavens, the earth, and the Infernos. Lucifer-Prometheus, radically integrated with all of the parts of our Being, makes of us something distinct, a different and exotic creature, an Archangel, a terrific and divine power.” - Samael Aun Weor
Many times while I was in Mexico, Master Samael said: “I need to white wash the brass and burn my books.” Everyone who understood the alchemical aspect of this knew what he was referring to with this statement. Other ignoramuses who did not understand Kabbalah and Alchemy were literally trying to burn the books of the Master. “Oh the master does not like the books that he wrote, we need to burn them.” They were preaching this. These people are ignorant; they are taking literally what the Master said alchemically, symbolically, esoterically. To burn your books means to burn all the garbage you have in your mind, all the garbage you gathered in all the centuries of this life and past lives. If you go to meditate and you want to quiet your mind, how will you achieve that, if you have read so many books? How many books do we have in our mind? We have a library of garbage. That is why Buddha says “If you meditate and you see Buddha disintegrate Buddha, burn Buddha.” We need to learn to not have idols within, with spiritual figures or other people. When people hear that, they say, “Oh I do not worship any gods from other religions, I only worship Jehovah” etc, ignoring that the alchemical statement of “you should not worship any idol” is something internal. There are many people who do not have any pictures of deities in their home from other religions, but inside them, within their mind they have hundreds of idols that they worship, and if you do not believe me watch American Idol, and you will understand.
I Yeshua יהשוה [the Savior] have sent mine angel [avatar or messenger Samael] to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and [ הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar, the glorified son of the dawn!] the bright and morning star. - Revelation 22: 16
Audience: In that quote you had, after that, in the Pistis Sophia, it talks about how Jesus asks for vine branches, which I always took as the nervous systems – the two nervous systems, either side of the offering – in accordance to the number of disciples that were present, which I always took to that to mean being present, self aware...
Instructor: It is to receive the bread of life, of course. That is a good comprehension of the statement of Jesus. Physically speaking, gnostically speaking, we perform that sacrifice of the Eucharist, which in many lectures we explained is necessary. But, when we read that scripture with the eyes of the spirit, we understand that it means the two forces of man and woman, together. And, he placed the sacrifice on the altar. What altar? The altar of Yesod; a cup of water, in front of the cup of wine. It is so obvious that he is talking about the transmutation of the water into wine, in the sexual act. That is why the way the transmutation of water into wine was performed in the weddings of Canaan. This is an alchemical statement that we have to understand. We have to learn to see the two aspects of all things, in order to comprehend them.
When you read the Pistis Sophia… it is very beautiful. It is an alchemical, kabbalistic book. You need to meditate a lot in order to understand it; not to read it literally. When the Master pronounced the profound name Yew, we know that it is Iod-Hei-Vav; you can also pronounce it Jew. But, we are not talking about the Jews of this day and age, he is talking about that mantra that connects us to the trinity and the Ain Soph Aur. That is Yew, Jew, or Judah in other words. That is why it is stated in the Zohar that, when a person, an alchemist, is not working with the sexual fire, it is impure. Therefore, it is always addressed as the letter D, Daleth. This Daleth encompasses the number 4, which is the Tetragrammaton. Thus, such a person is not working with the Tetragrammaton. But, when that individual learns the mystery of Daleth, which is Daath, then that Daleth transforms into Hei. That Hei is the Ain Soph. This is how we work with Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, when we are in chastity. But, if we fornicate, as many students of kabbalah do – even if only once a week – they will not ascend. Those kabbalists gather on Friday, Saturday, and they fornicate with their wife just as anyone else does in any other race. However, a true Jew transmutes, and enters into the flame of the lord, that white flame that we spoke about. Such a person takes the black, dark part of the flame of the candle (the sexual organs) and raises that white flame up the spinal column. That is a true Jew.
It is a process: the goal is to enter into the Tribe of Judah, which is the Absolute, and to become a Paramarthasatya. That is a very high level of development; that is to be a true Jew, alchemically speaking.
Audience: Does Kristus-Lucifer unite with the Divine Mother? Or are they one and the same.
Instructor: The Divine Mother carries Jesus in her womb, in other words, she carries the light. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” Thus, he is light. And, the Divine Mother carries that light in her womb, so the Divine Mother is Luci-fer, carrier of the light. They are part of the same light. When we talk about Lucifer, we talk about the Divine Mother, the Father, and the Son. That is the Holy Trinity, incarnated in the initiate. That is Lucifer. But, Satan is also there, in the one with ego.
Audience: Is there a way if an initiate dies young or accidentally, they get to retain the work that they have performed in this life?
Instructor: Of course. For example, there was the great initiate Tutankhamen, who’s body was desecrated by scientists. He self-realized himself at a very young age. Why? Because in previous lives, he had performed the work up to a certain point, but did not complete it. He finished the work when he was incarnated as a pharaoh.
Sometimes, in the path, you suffer certain sicknesses, certain ordeals in relation with your karma, and Lucifer, Christ, is always dealing with your karma; as it is written in Job, when God asked Lucifer how his son was doing, and Lucifer replied, “Well, I can go down there and clean him some more, but the egos that he has are related with Karmasaya and Kamaduro… he might die.” That is why the Lord says, in the first chapter of Job, to “just keep him alive. He is in your power, don’t inflict those sicknesses upon him.” But then, in the second chapter, Lucifer had to place those sicknesses within that initiate, and that is a process that some initiates cannot endure and they die. But, of course, then they return to keep performing their work, very awakened. For those initiates, it is not big deal; like, for instance, Krishnamurti. He returned to keep working, but did not take a wife. Why? Well, that is his business. He needs a woman, but did not take one in his last life, because he thought that he could teach what he had to teach without practicing Alchemy, because he was already awakened. The Dalai Lama is doing the same thing. However, we need to perform Alchemy; we need to awaken.
Audience: What is the difference between Christ as Lucifer and Christ as Chokmah, and the Ain Soph Aur?
Instructor: That is a good question. They are the same thing. Lucifer, in the Ain Soph Aur, is clean, pure, radiant. Every Paramarthasatya (an inhabitant of the Absolute), every Jew from the Tribe of Judah, at that level, has their own Lucifer shining, radiant within them. There we find Moses and the Glorian. Remember that the Glorian, in Isaiah says, “Glorified son of the dawn.” That Glorian, the one that glorifies any individual, is the same Lucifer. Thus, Jesus, Moses, Muhammad, belong to the tribe of Judah, as well as any initiate that reaches that level. Their Lucifer is pure.
Chokmah is the Christ, that type of Lucifer that descends in order to help the initiate. In Chokmah, all the light of Lucifer of every initiate forms a unified light. It depends on which initiate is working with that light, in that particular time, that Cosmic Christ descends through Chokmah, into Binah and is Gabriel. Gabriel is the one that deposits that child, that Christ, into the womb of the Divine Mother. That Christ within the womb of the Divine Mother is pure, beautiful, in heaven. But, that Christ has to descend, within the initiate. When the Lord descends into the initiate, and reaches the physical body, which in this case we can call Bethlehem, due to the presence of ego within the initiate, it becomes “Satan.” Then, that force, that Lucifer observes within the initiate lust, anger, pride, vanity, and above the head of that initiate, he sees Herod, who wants to kill him. That is the difference.
As long as the initiate has the ego alive, that Lucifer is Satan within that one. That is why, sometimes, when that Lucifer is completely pure, he expresses himself through the initiate. That is what happened with the Master Samael in the last years of his life. His Lucifer was pronouncing himself through the Master, as a tempter too. Other times, the Angel, the Logos was pronouncing himself through the physicality; and other times, it was John (the Bodhisattva) acting there.
A Master’s Lucifer, in order to purify his students, will tempt them; anyone that approaches the initiate at that level has to be aware that maybe that Master’s Lucifer is going to talk through him, in order to tempt, to test. There were many of Master Samael’s students that were tested by his Lucifer, and they did not notice it, because they were asleep. They would proclaim that the Master Samael told them this or that, and I would ask, “Yes, but, was it the Master, or his Lucifer that was talking through him?”
I remember once, I heard from a particular initiate who said, “Master Samael Aun Weor told me, in front of my wife, that I could practice sexual magic, 1,2,3,4,5, as many times as I want, if I annihilate the ego.” Then, I said, “What you are telling me is black magic. Master Samael explained very well that you can only practice sexual magic once per day.” “But, the Master Samael told me that in front of my wife.” I thought, if that is the case, I will address the Master. So, when we were together, I asked the Master, “This certain individual told me that I can practice sexual magic as often during the day as I like, if it is for the annihilation of the ego.” I asked this in front of many people, he said, “That, brother, is practicing black magic.” “Thank you very much Master; I just wanted to know.” “What you are telling me is that he said that, in front of many people?” “Yes.” “Well, you have to tell me the name of that instructor, because he is going to spread black magic.” It just happened that such an instructor was seated at his left side, in that very moment. I said, “Well, he is the man that is seated at your left side, in this very moment.” Then the initiate said to the Master, “You said that to me Master, remember?” Then the Master closed his eyes, and said, “In the name of the Father of the Lights, I will tell you this: only once per day can you perform sexual magic.” Who was the one that said that to the initiate? It was Lucifer. I say that, because he said many things, tempting me often, and I thought, “Ok, I have to meditate on what he is telling me, and to inquire.”
To be close to a master of that level… read the book of Goethe, called Faust. Faust would say, “I have to go, I have many things to do in this moment.” Then, Mephistopheles would say, “Don’t worry. I will take care of your students.” Then, when the students would enter, they would think that it was Faust, but it wasn’t, it was his Lucifer, inside his body. The initiate would leave the body in order to take care of many things outside of the body, but that body can be used by his own Lucifer, in order to tempt, to test the students of that master.
That is why I say that not all the things that the Master Samael said through his mouth was pronounced by his Logos… sometimes it was his Lucifer. And I say that because he tested me many times. One needs to analyse everything that you hear, otherwise, we might repeat things that cause harm, committing mistakes, accruing karma. In this path, we have to be careful.
Audience: There was a passage that you showed, relating to Mary, where it said that “She knew him not.” And you explained it, but there was a second part that said, “Until Jesus was born.” I’m assuming that, that doesn’t mean that she started fornicating once Jesus was born… does that mean that she stopped sexual Alchemy?
Instructor: No. It means that the Divine Mother, in the planes, takes the seed of the Holy Spirit, through Geburah, Geburah-el, Gabriel, which is the male. That baby boy, that child of God, ascends, and Gabriel delivers that baby Jesus, that savior. That baby Jesus descends from that level of Daath, to the physical body. Then, when he enters into the physical body, Joseph is told, “Now, take your wife, until this baby is born.” He has to practice.
We are talking about the birth of Christ, the Savior: it is something internal. It is not a physical birth. This is called the initiation of Tiphereth. Then, that boy, that God-child enters into Tiphereth and Tiphereth becomes the child of the child. Then, that force descends into Malkuth. When Malkuth receives that child, which is Mary, the wife of Joseph, that initiate is told, “Now you have that child, the savior within you; keep that child in secrecy. Go to Egypt. Do not be big mouthed, because Herod can kill that child.” That is an alchemical process, from the internal planes to the physical plane. This is how we have to understand it.
