Here is the world, empty and round,
it goes up and down, glitters and bounces,
it dances around the sun,trembles and roars, gives and destroys;
now barren, now fertile,
this is the world.
On its huge old back there is a race
both profligate and mad, haughty, cowardly,subtle and wicked,
whose members devour one another ceaselessly
from the topmost peak to the bottom-most depths
of the wicked world.
An empty fable is Satan to them,
Hell is a matter for mockery and derision,
Paradise for derision and mockery.
Oh by God!
Let me have a good laugh now
thinking of what I'm hiding from them!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
There goes the world!
- Mefistofele from the opera Mefistofele based on Goethe's Faust.
The study of the Kabbalah is the study of the ubiquitous Tree of Life. Present in the mythologies and religious symbolism of many cultures, the Tree of Life is a map of the consciousness. But this map also has a shadow.
The Tree of Life is symbolized by a structure of ten spheres. These spheres are called “sephiroth.” This is a Hebrew word whose singluar form, "sephirah," means “jewel.” Each sephirah on the Tree of Life is symbolized by a jewel because it relates to virtues, which are the precious stones of the soul.
The Ten Sephiroth are Ten Spheres related with the multidimensionality of the Universe. This is the Tree of Life with its divine attributes, which are explained methodically in Four Manifested Cosmic Systems of Worlds that are called in Kabbalah: Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah and Assiah.
However, there exists according to Kabbalah the shadow of that Tree of Life which does not manifest any divine attribute, but instead is the opposite of all of the Four Manifested Cosmic Systems of Worlds. This is the world of Klipoth.
Klipoth are the fallen sephiroth: the Abyss.
These sephiroth are shells, empty vessels, because they do not contain any divine attributes.
All the forces are inverted: "The demon is God inverted."
The forces related to the Tree of Life invert when in the abyss.
Evil below, Good above, in relation to duality.
We have to use our imagination; imagine a landscape, a quiet lake, and a tree on the shore. The tree is reflected in the lake. Which is the tree and which is the reflection? They both look the same.
The Tree of Life in relation to the Heavens:
- Malkuth = physical world.
- 9 Spheres = 9 Heavens.
- There are also 9 Infradimensions below the physical world.
Every cosmos is related to:
- the Law of 3 (related to Kether, Chokmah, Binah).
- the Law of 7 (related to Chesed through Malkuth).
We find the opposites of these laws in the Klipoth.
When above, the Law of 3 creates; but in Klipoth it destroys.
The Holy Spirit, Binah, Siva, is the creator.
Through the Holy Spirit the Father and Son always create.
But in Klipoth the Ray of Creation starts disintegrating, acting negatively.
In the human being, the energy of the Ray of Creation is distorted by the "Three Filthy Spirits that have the form of a frog that come out of the mouth of the false prophet" (from the Book of Revelation).
The energy of the Ray of Creation works through the Law of Three. In the Microcosmos, the human being, the Ray of Creation is related to the Three Nervous Systems:
- The Cerebrospinal Nervous System is related with the energy of the Father
- The Grand Sympathetic Nervous System is related with the energy of the Son
- The Parasympathetic Nervous System is related with the energy of the Holy Spirit
When the three primary forces become inverted by the ego, the latter then channels the forces of Klipoth, thus creating in our psychological nature the Three Traitors of the Cosmic Christ.
The Three Demons/Traitors
In the Head we have the Demon of the Mind, distorting the Father's energy in order to satisfy the appetites we have in our ego. This demon is the opposite of the Father who is Truth.
The Christ is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The most beautiful atoms always manifest in the Son.
Christ said, "I am the Truth, the Light and the Way."
To incarnate the Truth we have to have a balanced mind, but when we want the Truth through the intellect, without experiencing the Light, we develop the Anti-Christ, the intellect under the service of the ego, materialism.
The Creative Ray of Light from above, in all the worlds, that shines in every Angel, every part of the universe, is the Truth, but we disconnect from the Truth, Light, and only see through our personal ego: Anti-Christ.
The "den" of the Anti-Christ is in the intellect.
Intelligence under the service of the Father is embodied in the Angel, the prophet, eg. Master Jesus, with an Illuminated intellect.
But when the intellect is not under the service of the Father, the intellect becomes the Anti-Christ.
There are many Anti-Christs: in the mind of every person.
We deny Divinity, mock Divinity.
Now we will quickly summarize each of the inverted spheres.
Klipoth, Demons, Vices:
- Demon: Javhe.
- Vice: Despotism.
Samael Aun Weor stated:
"Javhe was a venerable Master from the White Brotherhood, a glorious Angel from previous Maha-Manvantaras. I knew him, I saw him when he was a Priest and a warrior among the people of Lemuria. Everybody loved, adored and venerated him. The Hierophants of the Purple Race granted to him the high honor of using armor, crest, helmet, shield and sword of pure gold. This warrior-Priest was shining as a flame of gold under the thick jungle of the sun. Upon his symbolic shield, Vulcan had engraved many prophesies and terrible warnings. Woe! Woe! Woe! This man committed the error of betraying the Mysteries of Vulcan.
"The Lucifers of that epoch who were floating in the atmosphere of the ancient continent "Mu" taught him Black Tantrism, the Maithuna with the ejaculation of the Ens Seminis. What is most grave in this matter is that this man who was so loved and venerated by the entire world allowed himself to be convinced and began to practice this type of pernicious Sexual Magic with certain women. Therefore, it is clear that the igneous serpent of our magical powers descended through his medullar canal and was projected from his coccyx downwards, thus, forming and developing in Javhe's Astral Body the abominable Kundabuffer Organ. This is how this Angel fell and through all of the ages became converted into a terribly perverse demon.
"Many times we have found the Priestess-spouse of Javhe in the Superior Worlds; she is an ineffable Angel. Useless were the efforts of this man to convince his spouse because she never accepted the Black Tantrism of the tenebrous. Therefore, she preferred divorce rather than entering onto the black path.
"Javhe is that Demon who tempted Jesus the Christ, and when Jesus had fasted in the wilderness, this Demon tempted him and said: "If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread."
"It is written, that Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." answered Jesus.
"The sacred Scriptures say that Javhe then took Jesus the Great Kabir up into a high mountain and tempted him by saying: "ITABABO all these kingdoms of the world will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me."
"Then, the great Master Jesus answered: "Get thee hence Satan: for it is written, Thou shall worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve."
"Finally, it is written that Javhe brought Jesus to Jerusalem and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him: "If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence; for it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone."
"And Jesus answering said unto him, it is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God" and when Javhe had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season."
- Quoted from The Gnostic Magic of the Runes by Samael Aun Weor
Javhe is the opposite of Christ, and represents Despotism.
In the Infradimensions we find the negative doubles of the Divinities from the superior worlds. When we invoke Jesus Christ in the internal worlds, we can be deceived by Javhe, his opposite, who will disguise himself as Jesus.
In Klipoth we find the opposite of every Master. The Enemy of the Christ is Javhe who is the Chief of the Black Lodge, the Head. That is why we find the conjurations. We must conjure the invoked Master, eg. in the astral world.
These beings are related to certain Sephiroth and develop themselves in the actions or forces related to certain Sephiroth.
- Jesus: Jupiter, Ray of Liberation
- Javhe: opposite. Very sly intellect.
All his lectures start talking against the Christ. He will disguise himself and his evil intentions and try to lead the student from the path, talking of "Wisdom," "Love," etc.
In the astral world a Gnostic instructor invoked Samael. Samael is the Chief of Geburah. He appeared riding a majestic white horse, wearing a white robe with a white mantle from head to foot. But it was Moloch, disguised.
The instructor didn't conjure him, because he thought he was the Master of the White Lodge. Moloch asked: "Why have you invoked me?"
"Because I need this and that..
Moloch said: "But you have these things.."
The instructor started to doubt the Master, and so asked him about the Key of Sahaja Maithuna.
"Do you know the clue of the Great Arcanum? No fornication."
Moloch laughed. "Are you awake?"
"Yes I am."
Moloch said, "But I am always awake here."
The instructor tried to conjure Moloch, and he just stood there and watched; the instructor didn't have enough energy. Moloch was being polite, just showing that it is possible to be awaken without walking on the Path of Chastity.
Later the instructor talked with the Master Samael in the physical world, and Master Samael said that Moloch was trying to mislead him, to take him from the Path, and to show that it is possible to awaken, but for evil.
Moloch is a head of a legion of demons. He acts under Javhe.
We have to conjure, to know the clues to see if the one who appears is reflection or not.Mediums say that they are channelers of such-and-such Master, but they channel forces from Klipoth.
The Double of any Master is in Klipoth.
If in the Astral World it is difficult to tell whether a being is a demon or an Angel, then in the case of the medium it is impossible. We need objective clairvoyance for that.
"In the name of Christ, by the power of Christ, for the majesty of Christ, is this the Truth you are telling me?"
Then, Bless in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Then say apologies. "I am doubting of myself, not you. The demons of Klipoth try to mislead me."
Most of the legions of demons are locked in the abyss, for our own sake. But there are still demons with physical bodies, and so they are in the Astral World misleading people.When we have nightmares we enter into Klipoth.
Javhe symbolizes our own Anti-Christ in the mind.
- Demon: Belial.
- Vice: Blind Faith and Fanaticism.
Samael Aun Weor stated:
"Belial from the Empyrean, indeed, there is not a Spirit who fell more impurely lewd, or more grossly inclined to love vice than this creature, who in ancient Lemurian times was certainly a Master or Angelic Guru of ineffable splendors...
"This Demon, a Deity in other times, had no temples standing, nor were any consecrations offered to him at any altar; nonetheless, no one is more often than he in temples and at altars.
"When the priests turn atheist, as did Ely's sons, who disgracefully filled with prostitution and violence the house of the Lord, they are then, as a fact, converted into slaves of Belial...
"Sublime Hierophant from archaic epochs of our world, delectable Angel, now an evil Luciferin-Demon, he also reigns in luxurious courts and palaces and in dissolute cities, where the noise of riot, lust and outrage ascends above their loftiest towers...
"Thus, when night darkens the streets, then wander forth the children of Belial, flown with insolence and wine.
"Witnesses of all these are the streets of Sodom and that horrible night in Gibeah, when its doors yielded a Matron to prevent a worse loathed rape."
- Quoted from Parsifal Unveiled
God the Son, Christ, Chokmah is the root of Faith: Direct Experience, lived experiences in the internal worlds.
When we do not experience what we know we become children of Belial: fanatics.We have within the left ventricle of our Heart the Nous atom; this atom is related to superlative intuition.
When we develop superlative intuition we open the doors to the internal worlds.
But when we do not develop superlative intuition we develop the Interior Pharisee instead.
Pharisee comes from Parsi, Persian, related to the Zoroastrians, worshippers of the Fire, but the Pharisee worships God without any experience of God. The Pharisee believes in Angels, but has no experience with Angels.
We must work with the Three Factors (Birth, Death, Sacrifice).
Pharisees feel happy with themselves, but have lots of defects.
"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
Pharisees have this psychological attitude in the heart; "Thank God I am always good. Everyone else is a wolf, I am meek."
Being rich means to feel being "better," proud, vain. We have to be humble.
It is urgent that we understand religious pride.
When we do not experience, when we are not humble, we have only blind faith.
Belial is also related to those who awaken negatively through drugs/ alcohol.
The "DT's" (Delirium Tremens) are experiences in Hell.
Drugs awaken us in the abyss - these people believe they are on the right path.
When the Priest makes business with any sacraments, he is a child of Belial.
- Demon: Lilith Ashtaroth.
- Vice: Subtle Stupidity.
Samael Aun Weor stated:
"With these terribly malignant Divinities who in the ancient continent Mu were indeed exemplar men, humanized Angels, came those who, from the bordering flood of old Euphrates to the brook that parts Egypt from Syrian ground, had the undesirable names of Baal and Ashtaroth..."
The Holy Spirit, Binah (Hebrew), means Understanding.
Its opposite is Subtle Stupidity; Lilith (also Nahemah, related to fornication and adultery).
Lilith is violence against nature:
- Using the energy of the Holy Spirit through wrong channels, such as in homosexuality.
- The abuse of sex through crimes like abortion.
- The hatred of sex, as in so-called "celibacy."
When we transmute our sexual energy into Light, then we receive Understanding and Intelligence.
In Fornicators the energy is transformed into Subtle Stupidity.
Lilith is the opposite of Anael (the Angel of Love):
Lilith is hatred/violence in sexuality.
There are many souls identified with Lilith.
The Holy Spirit acts through sex, and so we must know how to respect sex.
We work against these elements related to the 3 brains.
We have many egos within related to these 3 demons.
