This is a transcription of an audio lecture:
We are going to expand on the lecture Paradise Lost in order to comprehend “Paradise” in greater depth, since it can be interpreted in a number of ways.
To begin this Kabbalistic, Alchemical explanation, we are going to read some excerpts from the Master Samael Aun Weor in order to comprehend Diaspora which is the Exile that begins in the Absolute. Master Samael Aun Weor stated:
“When the heart of this solar system began to palpitate after the profound night of the great Pralaya, thereupon the gods from the dawn began to weep.
Remember, son of mine, that the gods also err. Those divine Elohim wrote their erratum on the cosmic page of the past day.
Wouldst thou comprehend now the motive, the real cause of the universe, the vital secret of the conscious life, the desire for life?
When the dawn was dawning, I saw the Causal Logos moving upon the face of the waters.
“Do not begin the dawn of the Mahamanvantara yet!” cried the holy gods amidst their sobs.
Useless was their begging, vain their lament. Occasionally, the great Being stopped for a while in order to read the karma from those resplendent children of the dawn.
These poor children prayed, they cried a lot, as did their mother with fervour. Hence, everything remained in silence. Then, amidst the quenched sobs of the waves, only the rumor of existence was heard.” - Cosmic Teachings of a Lama by Samael Aun Weor
“The present cosmic day is symbolized by a blue pelican which is opening its chest with its beak in order to drink from its own bosom from which all creation sprouted.” - Tarot and Kabbalah by Samael Aun Weor
Very profound, right? Here Master Samael Aun Weor is entering into what the Bible in the book of Genesis states at the very beginning:
בראשית ברא אלהים Barashyth Bara Elohim
“In the beginning, Elohim created.”
Let us understand that creation sprouted from the Ain Soph, the womb of the heavens and from Yesod the womb of the earth.”
We have talked many times about these paragraphs of Genesis because they have a very Kabbalistic, alchemical, symbolic meaning.
THE MYSTERIOUS SAT
Genesis begins in Hebrew with:
בראשית ברא אלהים Barashyth Bara Elohim
Barashyth בראשית specifies the very pure mysterious divine “שאת Sat” which in Hebrew means “dignity” or “Seity,” and “ברי Bri,” means “clear or pure” in Aramaic. As well, Bara is ברא Briah, the mystery of creation. Elohim אלהים is the mystery of preservation.
Thereafter it is written “Ath HaSchamayim את השמים” which is translated as “in the Heavens.”
The mysterious word “את Ath” is also here:
This is what we explained in the previous lecture, Paradise Lost - Part 1. Yet, here we will explain this mysterious word “את Ath” further.
To synthesize and comprehend what we are indicating here, we are going to look at a verse of the book of Revelation where we read that when the Lord Christ appears to John the Divine, he says,
“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says (ὁ κύριος kyrios) the Lord, which is, which was and which will be, (ὁ παντοκράτωρ pantokratōr) the Almighty.”
The Book of Revelation is written in Greek and that is why it is written “I am Alpha and Omega.” However, when the Book of Revelation is translated into Hebrew we do not read “I am Alpha and Omega,” but “אני האלף והתו Ani (I am) Aleph and Tav” because Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and Tav is the last. Whether we read it as Alpha or Aleph for the first letter, and Omega or Tav for the last - of the Greek and Hebrew alphabets respectively - obviously, in between them, we find all the rest of the letters of both alphabets. So just by saying, “Alpha and Omega” or “Aleph and Tav” Jesus is saying, “I am the λόγος Logos” which in Greek means “Word.” In Hebrew , “Word” is written דבר Dabar and from the word דבר Dabar is derived the Book, “דברים Dabarim” called in English, Deuteronomy. Dabarim דברים is plural, and means “Words.” The word דבר Dabar is also associated with שם Shem, which in Hebrew means “Name.” From the word שם Shem derives the word שמי Shemi or שמית Shemite, which is translated into English as “Semite.”
The word את Ath, upon which we are making an emphasis here, as we see, is hidden in the word בראשית Barashyth, that as we know is a kabbalistic anagram. Bri ברי is an Aramaic word that means “pure" or "clear” and relates to את Ath or שאת Sat meaning, "a Seity” or “dignity," the Logos from the clear and pure Abstract Absolute Space within which we find ש Shin, the fiery trinity of creation. If we delve into Sanskrit, सत् Sat represents that true unchangeable essence that is attributed to that Divine Seity of the Abstract Absolute Space which is formless, as the outer space. So we see how the word “Sat” both in Hebrew and Sanskrit relate to the same abstractness.
Master Samael says that in the beginning (בראשית Barashyth) the Elohim or Gods were crying and begging שאת Sat, the Logos, not to begin the dawn of the Cosmic Day because that implies the Exile or the Diaspora, the departure of ש Shin, the fiery trinity of creation, from the Absolute Abstract Space, into the universe.
You may ask,“But why do we have to know or why do we need to know about this?” We need to understand this because in the depth of our inner-self, of our Consciousness, we have an atom, a divine atom. We call it atom not because it is an atom of chemistry, but in the sense of the Greek word which means “small” or a “particle.” This atom of that vast Abstract Absolute Space is something that all of us have within; all of us have שאת Sat within. Sat שאת is in Kabbalah called the Ain Soph, that from which we emanated.
DIASPORA OR EXILE OF THE MONADS FROM THE ABSOLUTE
“Space is filled with universes, and while some systems of worlds are emerging from the profound Night, others are arriving at their sunset. Here are cradles, and far away there are sepulchers.
"When the aurora of the mahamanvantara is initiated, the heterogony unfolds into the homogeneity, and the Army of the Voice (the Elohim) is born again in order to create anew.
"The universe shook with terror when the aurora of the new cosmic day was announced. Then, a strange and frightful twilight emerged in the Consciousness of the Elohim and the human beings, and the Uncreated Light began to withdraw from the Consciousness of them. Afterwards, the Elohim and the human beings wept like children before the aurora of the great cosmic day... Then, the Causal Logos reminded the gods and human beings of their karmic debts, and the pilgrimage of the human being from one world into the other began. Finally, they arrived on Earth, where they are presently living, submitted to the wheel of birth and death until they learn to live governed by the law of love.
"The universe emerged from within the bosom of the Absolute, and the Uncreated Light sank into a nostalgic sunset. Thus, this is how the Gods and human beings descended within the shadows of the universe.
"The sacrifice was consummated, and the Kabbalah registered in its Major Arcanum Twelve. If we add the number twelve in itself, it gives us three. One is the masculine principle, the fire. Two is the feminine principle, the water, the semen. Three is the universe, the Son.” - Tarot and Kabbalah by Samael Aun Weor
The Ain Soph is that divine atom, the womb from which all of our Monads emerged. Indeed, each one of us has their own particular individual שאת Sat or Ain Soph. Ain Soph means, “limitless.” So, within the bosom of space of what we call the Cosmic Common Universal Father, those atoms enjoy what we call happiness, but without knowing what that happiness is. The duty of each one of those atoms is to leave the Abstract Space and to appear in the universe in order to create, develop and to acquire cognizance: cognizance of their divine nature. This is the only reason for the universe to exist, and this is what we call or what the Bible calls, “the beginning.” This is Barashyth בראשית, a sacred anagram which has many meanings that we have studied in many other lectures. It is also related with what John the Divine of the Gospel of John stated:
“In the beginning was “שאת Sat” the Word, and “שאת Sat” the Word was with God and the Word “שאת Sat” was God.” The same “Sat שאת” was in (בראשית Barashyth) the beginning with God. All things were made by “שאת Sat”; and without “שאת Sat” was not any thing made that was made. In “שאת Sat” is life; and the life is the light of men. And the light of “שאת Sat” shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended “שאת Sat” not.” - John 1: 1-5
So שאת Sat is a word that unites the Trinity to the unmanifested Logos from the Abstract Absolute Space. Let us explain it further because many religions talk about the Trinity or the Holy Trinity which is the first element that appears from that Absolute Abstract Space. In Christianity that Holy Trinity is called Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In India that Trinity is called Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. In Kabbalah we call it Kether, Chokmah and Binah which mean Crown, Wisdom, and Understanding. These three fiery elements with the Ain Soph form one force, which is called the Tetragrammaton, which is “Sat שאת” or the λόγος Logos. This is what the Bible calls Barashyth, that is translated as “In the beginning …”
Genesis states, “בראשית ברא אלהים Barashyth created Elohim.” This means that Barashyth בראשית or “ ברי-שאת Bri-Sat” the Pure Unchangeable Seity created a Deity or what we call Elohim. Very intriguing, right? This is intriguing because most of the time we think when we talk about Elohim, that this word is addressing God, the Creator… Yet, indeed God is the Creator, the Deity that emerges from “Sat שאת,” the Unknowable Divine Space. “Sat שאת” is a Seity beyond the gods and goddesses. This is why, we say that we have to comprehend what “Sat שאת” is, because each one of us has their own Seity within, as well as their own deity or particular Elohim or God within.
What we are explaining here is not just related to some particular part of outer space. No, this is also related to that deity that we have, that is, our own particular individual God, which exists within our own psychological space. This is how we understand that God is “gods”. The Hebrew word Elohim means “gods and goddesses.” But, indeed, not all of those Elohim are developed as cosmo-creators, as the Master Samael explains in the beginning of that quotation. Those Elohim committed mistakes in previous cosmic days, and this is why they again come into manifestation, in order to correct those past cosmic mistakes. Those cosmic mistakes are beyond our comprehension because they are not the same mistakes which we commit here in this physical world; no, our mistakes are something very simple, very superficial. What we are talking about here are cosmic mistakes.
So, שאת Sat, the Logos, is the one that brings all of those Elohim into manifestation. We call them Unities or Monads, from Greek μονάς Monas, unity. The Monad is the individual Deity that we each have within. The millions of Monads that emerged from the Abstract Absolute Space did so because of שאת Sat, the Logos. Without שאת Sat, the Logos, it is impossible for the Elohim to appear. That is why Moses wrote:
בראשית ברא אלהים Barashyth created Elohim
Otherwise written as:
"The beginning created the gods."
However, since translators do not know anything about Kabbalah and Alchemy, they translated that verse as “In the beginning God created.” We don’t deny that the Elohim have the power of Creation, but they emerge from Barashyth, which is “the Beginning.” This is why the Gospel of John says:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the Elohim and the Elohim were שאת Sat, the λόγος Logos.”
So, in שאת Sat there is no disunion or what we call separation or division. In שאת Sat everything moves with the same verve because its elements belong to the same Tetragrammaton or essential seity. This is why to simplify שאת Sat’s elements in one, we call it Theomertmalogos.
The Theomertmalogos is what Gurdjieff called the first emanation of the Solar Absolute. In Greek, Theos means God. In Urdu and some Greek, Roman, Turkish words mertma means “beauty.” Mertma is related to Splendor. This beauty or mertma is not the kind of beauty that we understand here when we say, “Oh! that woman is beautiful.” No, this beauty is what The Pistis Sophia calls Martha, and what in Kabbalah is called Tiphereth. Tiphereth in Hebrew means “splendor” but usually it is translated as beauty because everything that has such splendor or “glow” is beautiful. So that is what that word mertma” means. λόγος Logos is “the Word.” So the word Theomertmalogos is addressing the Elohim immersed within Martha, that glorious splendor of the Logos or “Mertma Logos” that we call שאת Sat.
When the Monads emerge from the Abstract Absolute Space they emerge like a ray of light. That ray of light emerges from within שאת Sat, the Theomertmalogos. Each one of us has his own particular ray of light. That ray of light enters the universe in order to develop as Elohim.
Master Samael states that the Ain Soph has within its bosom three atoms that are related with creation: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Brahman, Vishnu and Shiva, etc. Those three atoms are a particular inheritance within every Ain Soph. There is not a single Ain Soph without these three atoms. So the Ain Soph plus those three atoms equals four atoms, and this is what is called Tetragrammaton, the four elements at the beginning of the dawn. They emerge with the duty of creation. With what they create, they develop. Without creating they cannot develop.
Every Ain Soph is limitless, with infinite possibilities. The Ain Soph needs to develop its cosmic creativity or individuality, and that is why it unfolds and projects into the universe. This happens in any beginning, and this is the Diaspora or Exile of our Father, our Monad, from the Absolute. This is what Jesus said:
“Your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him. After this manner therefore you must pray:
“Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever; Amen.” - Matthew 6: 8-13
Indeed, that prayer is an invitation to our Logoic Spirit (Israel) to descend in Tiphereth and to co-operate within us as souls (sons of Jacob), thus, by means of the Tiphereth Initiation, a psychological co-operation is established; this is how we receive and develop with שאת Sat internally.
“Assemble yourselves, and hear, you (souls) sons of Jacob; Listen to Israel, your (Logoic) father. See, all: a son! (Reuben ראובן), you my (בכרי Bkri "ברי") firstborn, my might, and (וראשית Varashyth) the beginning of my (און Aun) virility, the excellency of (שאת Sat) dignity, and the excellency of (עז Oz) power.” - Genesis 49: 2, 3
Master Samael Aun Weor explains to us that within the bosom of that Absolute Abstract Space there are two types of atoms: the atoms that have already completed the work and, therefore enjoy the happiness of the Absolute Abstract Space, and those that have not. They who have completed the work know; they are enlightened atoms, and Master Samael call them Ain Soph Paranishpana. Para is “absolute” and nishpana is “happiness.” Ain Soph Paranishpana are atoms with absolute happiness, atoms that know; yet most of our particular individual atoms do not know. To realize שאת Sat is why we are in this universe. This is why the book of Genesis was written, in order to explain what do we have to do in order to develop that particular star that is within us and to return into the bosom of the Cosmic Common Universal Father as what in Buddhism is called a Dharmakaya or a Paramarthasatya, meaning an atom with Absolute Consciousness.
An example of those Beings who have that vast light is the Master Aberamentho. He is the only one that we, the Gnostics , know who returned into the Ain, the Nothingness, the Uncreated Light. Master Aberamentho is known on the earth as Jesus of Nazareth. Of course, there are other Beings that have also returned, not into the bosom of the Father but close to it. They also enjoy a great light. This is why we, the Gnostics , revere Master Jesus because he is the only one that we know who became one with שאת Sat. We are not asserting that there are no other masters in the universe that did it, but on this planet Earth, the only one that we know that did it, that entered into the last limit of space and left in order to help this humanity, is Master Jesus. There are others, indeed, like Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster and many other great masters who still have not entered into the Ain but only into the Ain Soph, that other level of the space and still are developing perfection.
“When a universe is dissolved, only the memory of it remains in the Consciousness of the Gods. With those memories, the universe of Pleroma is formed. If something wants to be taken out of this place, it does not exist because it is only a memory.” - Tarot and Kabbalah by Samael Aun Weor
“The Unknowable Seity is the Absolute Abstract Space, the Rootless Root of all that has been, is, or shall be.
“Evidently, the Infinite and Eternal Cause is devoid of any kind of attributes; it is a negative light, a negative existence; it is beyond the reach of any thought or speculation.....
“The Divine World, the glorious domain of the Pleroma, came out directly from that Negative Light, that Negative Existence.
“Finally the Nous, (Monad) Spirit or Pneuma, contains in itself infinite possibilities that can develop during manifestation.” - Secret Doctrine of Anahuac by Samael Aun Weor
Indeed, Pleroma is the main point of this lecture, Pleroma explains that kind of cosmic paradise that our Monads lost.
In the beginning, when our Monads lost enjoyment of that happiness of the Universal Father, our Monads lost it not because they did something wrong; they lost it because the duty of every atom of the Absolute is to know, to acquire cognizance of itself. That is the only cause of existence: to know, to acquire cognizance of oneself. That cosmic departure is called the Diaspora or Exile. All of those igneous elements that are within שאת Sat, our Inner Star is what the Bible calls “Israel,” they who are exiled from that Seity named שאת Sat.
DIASPORA OR EXILE OF ADAM AND EVE FROM EDEN
Another is the exile from what we call “Eden.” The universe of Pleroma is not Eden; it is beyond Eden. The Eden that the Book of Genesis talks about is another story.
When the Monads or Spirits were projecting their own elements in creation, they began to create their own soul, developing Consciousness or cognizance of themselves. Master Samael explains this. This ray that we call the Theomertmalogos sent unconscious rays that, for the first time, entered into matter in the universe and thus descended into the mineral kingdom. They first developed in the mineral kingdom, and then entered the plant kingdom, later into the animal kingdom, and when for the first time they enter the humanoid level, they have the opportunity to work upon themselves in order to create what in Hebrew is called the Merkabah, or the Chariot, which is formed by four bodies (physical, astral, mental and causal solar bodies) with which the deity dresses in order to return triumphant into the Abstract Absolute Space. But when that ray entered the humanoid level, then we read the story of Adam and Eve and how they lost that state. Instead of returning to the Absolute Abstract Space they just became entangled in the earth in what we call evolution and devolution, due to becoming identified with the sexual energy, because in order to create as the Elohim we needed to be divided into two sexes.
In the beginning the Bible explains that when Elohim created Ath Ha-Adam,
“...he created את־האדם Ath Ha-Adam in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he Ath Ha-Adam; male and female created he them.”
Indeed, when we read this, Genesis is not addressing one individual, but one name which is Ha-Adam האדם the image of את Ath, in many individuals. Ha-Adam האדם represents the הא Hei or incarnated Word circulating in the דם Dam, blood. As we read it in Hebrew , the word Ha הא or Hei is the letters Aleph and Hei which is implying the Theomertmalogos. The letter Hei by itself represents the Ain Soph, because the letter Hei is like a womb that contains in itself the three atoms of the Absolute, which are represented in the shape of the letter Aleph, formed by three letters, namely, two letters Iod separated by one transversal Vav.
The spelling of the letter ה Hei is הא Hei-Aleph which in Hebrew means “behold” and that points to our own particular Spirit, the Ain Soph, Father, Son and Holy Spirit or Kether, Chokmah, Binah, because everybody has the tetragrammaton within. When that Trinity with the Ain Soph creates the man, he is called Ha-Adam. Ha-Adam translated into English means “the man” but the other two letters after הא Ha are Daleth and Mem. Daleth and Mem together form דם Dam, which translates as “blood.” So that means this הא Ha or Tetragrammaton circulates in the physical body as דם Dam, blood. So when you see that, you see the beautiful structure of the word Ha-Adam, the man. This is alchemically and kabbalistically telling us that the Ain Soph and the Trinity manifest and act through the blood.
This is why, in the beginning, the first root race on this planet, that Ha-Adam, was male/female. In their physicality they had the two polarities, being what is called “androgynous” (Andros = man, gynika = woman). The two polarities of creation were within the same body. It relates to the first root race who existed on our planet earth who were a crystallization of those Elohim that the Master talks about who committed the mistakes in the past cosmic day. They were already developed but not perfect.
So they created that androgynous Adam or that root race that existed in the beginning. Ha-Adam was not one man. Ha-Adam represents many human beings, but they were not separated into sexes yet. Havah, or Eve as we say in English, was still inside the body of את־האדם Ath Ha-Adam so those beings did not need the sexual act in order to multiply. They had the power of creation and multiplication within the body.
In order for a Monad to acquire perfection and for the new Monads to exercise creation, it is necessary and indispensable to split את־האדם Ath Ha-Adam (the androgynous Adam) into two halves and to make Adam and Eve. If Eve does not come out from את־האדם Ath Ha-Adam or the androgynous Adam, then the Monads cannot acquire perfection. They cannot do anything, so this splitting is necessary. This is why we find that Eve was created on the seventh day. Ath Ha-Adam את־האדם, the androgynous Adam, was created on the sixth day, but when Eve was created it was the dawn of the seventh day. This is why the seventh day is very special.
It is very important to understand that the separated Adam and Eve appear on the seventh day. At that time, after the splitting, the angels instructed the couples in how to perform the sexual act in order to create within themselves what they needed to enter or return into the Absolute Abstract Space. But as you know from the story of Genesis, those human beings committed the mistake of eating the forbidden fruit. What is this fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil? Well, it is the soul of the semen (seed), the sexual energy.
It so happened that when those Monads were in the animal level (the animal kingdom) they were fornicating because the animals follow their instincts. It is natural for an animal to reach the orgasm because they do not rationalize. They just multiply seasonally in order to multiply their species. But when those souls entered into human bodies for the first time, then the angels that the Bible calls Cherubim were instructing them. They said, “Now that you are going to inherit a human body, you shall not fornicate, that is, you shall not perform the sexual act with orgasm because the purpose of creation is for you to create inside of yourself with the soul of the sperm, those elements that are necessary in order to return to the Father and only with the sexual energy can you do this. So, therefore, do not eat from the fruit of that Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil which is in the center of your own body because the day that you do that you will die at the human level and return to the bestial level from where you came from. You have to go up, otherwise you will go down and devolve.”
So in the beginning, it is stated in all the traditions that the Lemurians were divided into two sexes. They were guided by the Cherubim (also called the Elohim) who were instructing them how to perform the sexual act in the temples. They were given all the necessary guidance and instruction in order to perform and to learn the sexual act as humans. They had to patiently learn because when they were animals it was natural for the animal to reach the orgasm and lose the sexual matter, within which is the substance that we need in order to create the solar bodies. Obviously the animals lose that substance easily and they create only in the physical world. That is why King Solomon, when talking about this present root race, said:
“For that which befalls the children of האדם H’Adam befalls beasts; even one thing befalls them: as the one dies, so dies the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that האדם H’Adam has no preeminence above a beast: for all is breath. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.” - Ecclesiastes 3: 19
People do not understand this mystery and they think that just by believing in something they are going to be born again in the Kingdom of Heaven or that they will just return into the Father, through beliefs. In this physical world we need the sexual energy in order to be born. In the internal planes we also need the sexual energy, but the process is different. So humanoids were doing this, but one day, as it is written, they committed the mistake of falling into animal generation. They ate “the fruit” and they lost the human state they were in, and left Paradise, which is called Eden. They also lost the opportunity to work upon themselves in order to return to the bosom of the Father and since that time humanity has been lost. This is why the Bible says,
‘And י Iod drove out את Ath, H’Adam’ - Genesis 3:24
THE LETTER Iod
The letter י Iod, which is at the beginning of יהוה, is a very profound archetype. The letter י Iod is just a spot, the first spot (or dot) that appears from the Absolute Abstract Space. Within that spot is precisely את Ath, the word, which contains the twenty-two archetypes that we need in order to create. That spot or י Iod is what we find in Yesod, sex.
In the coccyx of this graphic we find the word יסוד Yesod written in Hebrew . The first letter of יסוד Yesod is the letter י Iod. That leaves the word סוד sod in Hebrew , which means “secret.” So when we say “יסוד Yesod” we are stating Iod-Sod “the secret of the letter Iod,” a secret which here below, in Malkuth, we find precisely in the sexual organs and at the root also of the spinal column, the level of the genitalia.
In the graphic we also find written perpendicularly the word האדם H’Adam. Below the letter ה Hei we find all the sephiroth. In the shape of the letter א Aleph we find the letter Iod above and below a transversal letter Vav, which represents the spine; the Iod above represents Kether, and the letter י Iod below is in Malkuth, the tenth sephirah. Thus, Aleph contains the ten sephiroth above and below. The letter י Iod is the tenth letter in the Hebrew alphabet. Thus the letter י Iod contains ten sephiroth. It means that by knowing how to manipulate the letter י Iod below we create within ourselves the Internal Man made into the image of God or י Iod above; this is because the image of the Iod above, which is האדם H’Adam is hidden within the י Iod of יסוד Yesod, sex in Malkuth.
This is why it is written: “And he drove out the man” - Genesis 3: 24, which is kabbalistically translated as: "ויגרש את־האדם And י Iod drove out את Ath, from the Hei of Adam,” meaning, through the bestial orgasm, the י Iod below was expelled, drove out, from the Hei of האדם Ha-Adam, and along with it את Ath, the Logos. The image of Adam is in the י Iod within the second Hei of יהוה, which represents Yesod, sex. When fornicators ejaculate their sperm, they ejaculate the י Iod out of their genitalia, along with their את Ath, their Logos, their Alpha and Omega, because את Ath is within the י Iod.
This is why Christ says “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending” or the Aleph and Tav with which everything is created, because in the beginning was the Word. So every single letter of the Hebrew alphabet or את Ath, the Word of God is involved in creation.
Let us study the articulated Word; for instance, when males enter puberty and the testicles start creating sperms, the voice changes into a voice of an adult man. Likewise in a woman the tonality of her voice changes. So the voice, the throat, is related to sex. Throat and genitalia are intimately related.
So, obviously, in the beginning the Word, the Logos “את Ath” was utilizing the sexual energy in order to create. We, at the level at which we are right now, only know how to create physically and we don’t need to give you a lecture in order to tell you how. All animals know how without reading any lecture, right? So as Solomon said:
“For that which befalls the children of האדם H’Adam befalls beasts; even one thing befalls them: as the one dies, so dies the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that האדם H’Adam has no preeminence above a beast: for all is breath. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.” - Ecclesiastes 3: 19
What is the difference between the irrational beasts and us, the children of האדם H’Adam, we, the rational beasts? It is reasoning, right? Only we, rational beasts, can learn how to utilize the Word in order to create; but, for that we have to know how the Word is related to the sexual energy as we explained in the first lecture.
So when the Bible says that י Iod drove out את Ath, H’Adam this means that “the seed” (the Logos, the substance, the essence) of the man and woman, Adam and Eve when reaching the orgasm in Eden was ejected out from their organism; so, therefore, they lost their virginal human state and entered into the animal state. This is why they were kicked out of Eden, because in Eden we only find האדם H’Adam who is the human who never reaches orgasm, or that never ejaculates the seed or fornicates. The Edenic humanity knows how to transmute the sexual libido. Again, animals fornicate since this is an animal instinctual function. We cannot blame animals because they don’t know, but we know.
In this day and age fornicator people justify themselves saying “we are humans,” so they call themselves humans, but they ignore they are not humans because we were driven out from that state long ago; we were driven out from Eden. We have fallen into this three dimensional world which is the three dimensional world for humanoids or intellectual beasts with human shape. The real humans are in the fourth dimension, which is called Eden. Humanoids say, “but the animals behave like us, look at them?” Yes, they do, that is true; thus, they justify their degeneration by pointing at the irrational animals. If animals do it, it is because it is logical for them to do it, but it is not logical for us. They ignore that we are not at the human level. We fell from that level because we drove out the Logos from our system - the Logos that Christians call Christ. So in order to be a real Christian we have to keep the Logos within, which is in the sexual energy. But we are losing that sexual energy in many ways because in this day and age Fornication is very popular. You can learn it on the internet. You don’t even have to go to a school because you can learn on the internet about how to expel your sexual force from your own body in different ways that people applaud and they think this is normal. We, in this school, teach what is normal and not what is abnormal.
William Blake painted the Archangel Raphael teaching Adam and Eve in Paradise. Raphael, in accordance with Astrology, is the Logos which in Greek is Hermes, the God Mercury, the messenger of the gods. In Hebrew he is called Raphael. It is amazing to see that the Logos, Mercury or Hermes relates to Hermeticism, related with the mind, with the Word (Mercury = the Word) and with the sexual energy. As we see in the painting, Raphael was teaching Adam and Eve how to take advantage of the Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil, Ob and Od, which in the Caduceus of Mercury is represented by the two serpents or two polarities of the sexual energy. Adam and Eve ignored many of these things thus they could not overcome the tempting serpent and they ate of the fruit. This tempting serpent is nothing else than the sexual energy circulating through their nervous system. When you see pictures of the nervous system you find it has a serpentine form. It is because that energy, the sexual energy, manifests in the body in a serpentine manner as it circulates in the body.
So it does not literally mean that a serpent came and talked to Eve, because Adam represents the serpentine energy of the central nervous system, and Eve the serpentine energy of the genitalia in both sexes. Eve, the genitalia, is the mother of all life, this is what the Book of Genesis states. Adam (the brain) said,
“This shall be called 'אשה Ishah’, because she was taken out of איש' Ish.’”
Esh אש is fire in Hebrew .
“And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living;”
Eve is the creator of all forms, of all life. In Hebrew it is not pronounce Eve but חוה Chavah a name derived from חי Chai which means “life”. This is understandable when you read Chavah in Hebrew , it is translated as; “Oh yes, life”. But in English when we say Eve, this doest not make any kabbalistic sense. This is why we have to study the original language of the Bible in order to understand חוה Chavah which is חי Chai, life.
So alchemically we say Adam is the brain and Havah is the sexual organ. Easy! Adam and Eve are inside of us, right? Eve is the mother of all forms, yes of course. Where do we come from? From the brain? No. From the heart? No. We come from the sexual organ of our mother and we were nine months within her womb. But before being in the womb of our mother, as sperms we were in the testicles of our father. So do you see this? This is what the Bible calls חוה Chavah, the creative energy of the two sexes. חוה Chavah appears as the sexual organ, male and female, and that is precisely the division of sexes. In order to create physically we need the opposite sex. That is easy to understand. However, in order to create internally we also need the two polarities and this is why marriage is holy on the path of self-realization. This is why marriage is so holy. But men and women need to know how to utilize their own חוה Chavah.
So these words “Adam” and “Eve” really relate to different levels, namely, Adam, the man, Eve, the woman; Adam, the brain; Eve, the sexual organs. And there are other levels, but today we are not going too deep, in order for you not to get confused. The main thing is this, Adam and Eve are in our physicality. With Adam we think, it is our brain and we utilize Adam, our brain in order to think. With חוה Chavah/Eve, the sexual organs, we multiply. Simple! Yet, you might ask, “Well, if Adam and Eve are the brain and the sexual organ, who are Cain and Abel?”
KAIN AND ABEL
To explain these mysteries is precisely the point of this lecture; since, alchemically we know who Cain and Abel are.
When you read Genesis you find that the word את Ath is always very hidden, between many words. When you add the letter ה Hei at the end of את Ath , then we find the word אתה Athah. את Ath is the Logos; אתה Athah means, “you”. ואתה V’Athah, “and you.” These are alchemical words that hide many things. For instance, the word שאת Sat means dignity, and we clearly see the word את Ath hidden there; so when we switch the letter Shin of שאת Sat and put it in the middle of it, we read אשת Ashath, which means wife. If we take the letter Aleph out of שאת Sat we then find the name שת Seth, which is the 3rd son of Adam and Eve. It is written:
“And Adam knew - את־חוה Ath-Chavah - (Eve, his wife); and she conceived, and bare את־קין Ath Kain, and said, I have gotten a man - Ish איש - from את־יהוה Ath-Jehovah. And she brought forth again את־אחיו Ath Ahav, her brother, את־הבל Ath Habel and הבל Habel, רעה צאן evil sheep, and Kain was a tiller of האדמה Ha-Adamah, the ground.” - Genesis 4: 1, 2
The translators of the Bible translated את־הבל Ath Habel as Abel. And because they do not understand what the word את Ath means, they just wrote Eve instead of Ath-Chavah, Cain instead of Ath Kain, and Lord instead of Ath-Jehovah. They do not see that the word את Ath is the luminous and spermatic fiat of Barashyth בראשית, the beginning.
The previous verse, Genesis 3: 24, kabbalistically states that the י Iod below was expelled, driven out, from the Hei of האדם Ha-Adam, and along with it, the את Ath, the Logos. Thus, Genesis 4: 1, 2 explains how subsequently Adam, the brain, knew - better said, absorbed - through the orgasm, the את Ath of Eve, the sexual organ, his wife. Thus, Adam, the brain, through the peristaltic movements of the sexual organ after the orgasm absorbed from Eve an ominous את Ath, and created את־קין Ath Kain, who became a sensory mind, inside Adam, inside the brain. Likewise happened to us; through the orgasm, we created Kain, which is the sensory intellectual mind.
We have to engender a creative solar mind, but not a sensory intellectual mind. We need a solar mind that will understand את Ath, the word of God, our own Monad, our own Spirit; but, unfortunately, we have created Kain, which is a mind that identifies with the physical world, a mind that sees through the eyes, smells through the nose, hears through the ears, tastes with the tongue and perceives with the hands through touch; a mind which says, “ this is the physical world, this is what exists.” The sensory mind is called Kain. This is why it is written:
“And in process of time (evolution) it came to pass, that Kain brought of the fruit of, האדמה Ha-Adamah, the ground an offering unto יהוה. “And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And יהוה had respect unto Abel and to his offering. But unto Kain and to his offering God had not respect. And Kain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.” - Genesis 4: 3, 5
Kain brought “the fruits of his sensorial labour,” because he was a slave of the body which the Bible calls Adamah, the sensory mind brought the fruits of its labor and said: “God, look what I have brought for you”. As in this day and age we would say: “God! I am a doctor, I have the title of doctor or lawyer, I have this, I have that title… etc.” With our sensory mind we have created this society, yet, when we go and offer our titles to God, he will ask to you: “And what did you do all this time of your life on the earth?” and you will say, “Oh, I built a house, a family, my daughter is a lawyer, an actress, and I am a doctor,” then God will say, “I don’t care about that.” You have to be creative within, not without.
The things from this physical world are advertising buzzwords that everybody can get, this is why God despises the offerings of Kain, which is our sensory intellectual mind. Look at the superficiality of this society in this day and age, superfluous things is what we offer. People do not work psychologically upon themselves.
“And Abel, he (by means of sexual Alchemy) also brought (up to the brain) of the firstlings (animal sexual force) of his flock (sperm) and of the fat thereof (we require plenty of fats, but the natural, saturated kind in order to produce sex hormones). And יהוה had respect unto Habel and to his offering:” - Genesis 4: 4
“Wherefore the wrath of Kain was aroused and he was greatly incensed and so we read that when they were in the field (Yesod, sex), he fell upon his brother Abel and slew him. From these words in scripture we infer that a quarrel arose between them respecting Abel's twin sister, which is further confirmed by the traditional rendering of the words, 'And she brought forth again with her brother Abel,' showing that Abel was born with a twin sister.” - Zohar
Habel הבל means “vanity” and “breath.” We know the science of breathing, the science of Habel, the soul-breath. Habel הבל is the second birthing of Eve, the sexual organ. The developing of Habel, the essence, into a Human Soul is accomplished when we learn the science of Alchemy. During the sexual act we must control our respiratory process, we must control the two polarities of our breathing, so that the centrifugal force becomes centripetal; this way, the sexual energy, from our testicles or ovaries, will flow inwardly and upwardly towards the brain. Habel הבל as "Vanity" represents the essence, a spark of נשמה Neshamah, the “soul” trapped within Kain, the lunar mind that is fed with the sexual energy. As breath, Habel is א Aleph that nourishes דם dam, the blood in our heart. דם Dam, the blood becomes in the sexual organ the firstlings of the flock of Habel, the breath, which through sexual Alchemy ascends to the pineal gland, the seat of the soul.
“The ascension of the seminal energy to the brain is performed thanks to a certain pair of nervous cords that, in the form of an eight, splendidly unfold to the right and to the left of the dorsal spine. We now have arrived at the Caduceus of Mercury with its wings of the Spirit that are always opened. This mentioned pair of nervous cords can never be found with the bistoury (scalpel), because they are of a semi-ethereal, semi-physical nature.” - Samael Aun Weor
“And יהוה אלהים Iod-Havah Elohim formed את־האדם Ath Ha-Adam of the dust of האדמה Ha-Adamah, the ground, and breathed into his nostrils נשמת חיים Neshamoth Chayim, the breaths of lives; and האדם HaAdam became a living soul.” - Genesis 2: 7
This alchemically means that when we sublimate the life, the soul of the sperm, named Habel (breath), we then become a living soul. So when we work with the soul of the sperm in sexual Alchemy, we develop the Human Soul within, even though we are fallen; yet, this is the way to acquire the knowledge of good and evil , because we are fallen in evil, since we multiply like the beasts. So when we start comprehending this and developing knowledge of Elohim, God within, then our inner Monad, our inner God, is pleased with us and is happy with it, and that is why Genesis says that Iod-Havah was pleased with the offering of Habel.
“What profit has a man of all his labour which he takes under the sun? One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth abides for ever. The sun also arises, and the sun goes down, and hasten to his place where he arose.” - Ecclesiastes 1: 3-5
Everybody is worshipping the fornicator Kain. When you talk to them about God or about the Solar Spirit, they look at you and think, this man or this woman is retarded; they start talking about the illusions of people who thought that the Sun was God, right? Why do ignoramuses laugh when we say that we worship the Sun? When they also worship the Sun, but ignorantly, do they know the value of vitamins? Yes, they do. So from where do they get those vitamins from? They get them from plants and minerals, etc. And from where do those plants get those vitamins called “life”? Do you think those plants could get that if there was no Solar Light? So ignoramuses also worship the Sun, right? The ancients also worshipped the Sun but not in the stupid manner that ignoramuses think, that ancients were worshipping that circle that is in the center of our solar system. We know this because the Sun is the center of life of the mineral kingdom, the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom and of us, and if we know how to handle that energy then we develop.
But, ignoramuses think in that way and they do not realize that in order to transform their mind, they need energy and they get that energy from the Sun. Imagine if there was no Sun; the planet would die. Solar light is the center of life within every universe. So, therefore, to worship the Sun is wise, but only when we know how. Not like these people who think; “Oh! they are just worshipping something ignorantly” and so ignoramuses ignore that they ignore.
So, this is what Habel means; to understand this and to utilize the breathing exercises in order to feed the soul, the mind. But Kain killed Habel. If God says that you have killed Habel, it means that you did not kill him outside; this is not a killing you perform externally, outside your body. It is something that you do within. Your mind kills the longings of your Soul every time that you push aside the Spirit and that is why in this day and age everybody worships Kain.
Kain devolved into what the Bible calls “Lamech,” because Lamech’s son is Tubal Kain (an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron; and a sister of Tubal-Cain is Nahemah); they both represent the alchemical psychological devolution of the protoplasmic mind. Lamech means in Hebrew “good for nothing” and that is the situation. Lamech is the one who says, “If Kain killed Habel and has to be punished 7 times then I, Lamech, have to be punished 7 x 7 because I, through devolution, have killed more than Kain.” And he is proud, right? Because in this day and age people kill more than Kain did; meaning, that not only do they kill the longings of their soul but also go outside and kill their brothers and sisters and thereafter as Lamech, they justify their crimes with many indolent words.
This is why Solomon the King said in his book Ecclesiastes,
“Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.”
When you read that in English and you go into the source of that writing you find that Vanity is actually translated from Habel, and that Habel also means breath and soul, but the translators of the Bible wrote “Vanity of vanities.” It could also be breath of breaths or soul of souls. So when you do not know Kabbalah they say, “This does not make any sense. What do they mean breath of breaths or soul of souls?” Vanity of vanities sounds better because everybody likes vanity. Then the Masters of the Zohar say, “Why did Solomon say Vanity of vanities?” Vanity means one and vanities is plural so at least two. So vanity of vanities means three, right? And these three are six because he repeats it again, “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities” so that means six breaths and when he says, “all is vanity,” it means one more vanity so there are seven vanities or seven breaths. These seven breaths relate to the seven lower sephiroth. Chesed is the first one because He hovers upon the creative waters in the beginning of the creation of man - Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod, Yesod and Malkuth. Those are the seven breaths, and those seven breaths are also Souls, right?
So what is “vanity of vanities”? The Kabbalist says, “Well, that is easy: Nephesh, Ruach and Neshamah”. Those are the three souls that are within each Monad, namely,
- Nephesh: the Animal Soul
- Ruach: the Thinking Soul
- Neshamah: the Spiritual Soul
So we find these three souls in different levels. To know more about this we have to enter into these studies. We are not going to explain these three souls now because this is vast, but these three souls are related with Chesed/Ruach, Geburah/Neshamah and Tiphereth/Nephesh Chaiah, in the world of Briah. Then it is repeated “vanity of vanities” pointing to the other three lower sephiroth, namely, Netzach, Hod and Yesod, in the world of Yetzirah, right?
And when he said, “All is vanity,” it means that everything in Assiah, the world of matter and action, this physical world of Malkuth, all is vanity, all is soul, all is breath, right? Can we exist for a second without breathing? Yes, but for one minute, no. We need the breath and that breath relates to the lungs and the lungs relate to the oxygen which we know purifies dam, the soul or the blood in other words. The blood (דם) purified by the oxygen (א) is called אדם Adam and that is why the letter א Aleph symbolizes air – “Ahhhhh-dam” – and then the purified soul throughout the entire body. This is what “All is vanity” means.
Malkuth the Kingdom
THE 49 LEVELS OF LAMECH THE GENERATION OF KAIN, THE MIND.
So, “All is vanity” in Malkuth, the kingdom, how do we explain this? 7 x 7 = 49. 49 breaths, or 49 souls, which are trapped within our protoplasmic bodies. The 49 levels of Lamech are reduced to 4+9 = 13. Thirteenth reminds us of Seth who cut the body of his brother Osiris into 14 pieces, yet only 13 pieces were found.
Osiris was a very wise and powerful king, and was loved and respected by the Egyptian people. Unfortunately, his brother Seth, was very jealous of his brother; thus, Seth began to form a plan to kill Osiris and to sit over his throne. Thus, one night, Seth killed Osiris and cut his body into fourteen pieces. This in order to be sure that Osiris’s body will never be found, and throwing the pieces into the River Nile.
“All of the progress in these studies is based on the Kabbalah.
“When Isis—the Divine Mother, spouse, and sister of Osiris—intended to resurrect Osiris, she only found “thirteen” pieces; the fourteenth piece, which was the phallus, was not found. Thirteen is death; it is obvious that Osiris must pass three days in the sepulcher, and those three days are equivalent to the three steps of the decapitation of (Kain) the ego. Isis found thirteen pieces, and She did not find the fourteenth, the “phallus,” because every lustful element was already dead in Him.” - Samael Aun Weor
As Osiris, Habel is dead, because - הבל הבלים Habel Habelim - represent the - נשמת חיים Neshamoth Chayim - or 7 breaths of life within each of the seven bodies of - האדם לנפש חיה HaAdam L'Nephesh Chaiah - the true human living soul, namely, Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, Malkuth, this is speaking Kabbalistically. Why does Habel Habelim הבלים הבל refer to the seven lower Sephiroth?
"King Solomon based his book upon the seven Vanities upon which the world is established. The pillars and foundations that sustain the world are called 'breaths', for just as the body cannot endure without - הבל Hebel (meaning breath, vanity), so the world cannot endure without - אלה Eleh - these seven breaths mentioned by King Solomon. These are seven, as it is written: "Vanity of vanities, says the preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity" - Ecclesiastes 1: 2 Altogether, there are seven vanities in the verse, Vanity is one; vanities is in the plural, and since the plural means at least two, that makes two vanities; together there are three soul-breaths, namely, נפש Nephesh, רוח Ruach and נשמה Neshamah: (Nephesh Chaiah נפש חיה in Tiphereth, the heart, and Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים in Chesed and Geburah, the lungs) “And again he says, “vanity of vanities,” (Yesod, Netzach and Hod respectively) which makes six in total. And if we add (Malkuth, where), "all is (soul-breath) vanity," at the end, there are seven vanities (seven levels of Consciousness)." - Zohar
The meaning of הבל Hebel - when switching the letters Lamed and Beth - is הלב HaLeb, soul, heart, Tiphereth, the sephirah where - וזרח השמש - the radiant sun-Christ arises towards Kether. Moreover, the three Hebrew letters of הבל Hebel make the kabbalistic addition of 37 and the five Hebrew letters of הבלים Habelim make the kabbalistic addition of 87, thus, 37 + 87 = 124, 1+2+4 = 7. Therefore by repeating הבלים הבל Habel Habelim again, this implies 7 breaths within each of the first seven, which means 7 x 7 = 49 in total. Thus, “all is vanity,” means that all of these 49 vanities are הבל Hebel, the 49 soul-breaths trapped in our protoplasmic animal lunar mind, Kain, in the land of Nod נוד, Limbo, Klipoth, underneath Malkuth.
"The sun also arises, and the sun goes down, and hasten to his place where he arose." - Ecclesiastes 1: 5
Meaning: "And - וזרח השמש - the radiant sun or radiant fire - ש Shin of HaShem השם - in Geburah, descend through the waters of פישון Pishon into Yesod-sex, and from there, the sun arises towards Tiphereth, the heart. And from Tiphereth, the heart, the sun goes down again into Malkuth, and hasten to (Yesod-sex) his place where his radiant - שם Shem - name arose."
Then you will say, “What, I have never heard about that before?” Yes, because you only read the Bible without knowing its roots. The true human has seven bodies. Can the Bible justify that? Yes, of course, it is written in Genesis that God made everything in seven days, the seven days of creation. For what purpose? To create the human, spiritually speaking. This is why on the seventh day Adam is placed in Eden and when Eve was taken out of Adam, he said, “This is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. Eve will be my wife and with her I will be the creator of the living.” Yet, Kain represents the mind of those who chose to create in the animal way, because animalistically speaking, anybody can generate in the animal way. The generation of Kain that ends with Lamech represents the animals, the egos, that we created. It is written:
“And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for (in my brain) I have slain (the seven bodies of) the (איש fiery) man from my wound (my orgasm), and (in my heart the seven breaths of) a young man from my hurt (my spasm). If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seven times sevenfold.” - Genesis 4: 23, 24
So we have to choose either the spiritual way or the animalistic way.
Then, “Vanity of vanities, Vanity of vanities, everything is vanity” as you read in Ecclesiastes relates to the 49 times that our breath, Habel, the young man, is dead at the hands of Lamech. In Gnosticism we always teach and say that we have seven levels of Consciousness, and that we have to know every defect, every vice, every animal aspect that we have within psychologically. We have to study it within the 49 levels of the protoplasmic mind.
You hear this and you wonder, “What are these 49 levels?” Listen, a true human has seven bodies and everybody, when you work with the secret of the Iod in Yesod and create within the seven bodies of the human, you develop in each body the seven virtues or breaths of that body. Those seven virtues or breaths are synthesized in the Book of Revelation. John the Divine says; “Go and teach to the seven churches of Assiah”. When people are not Kabbalists and read “Assiah” they say, “Just a minute; he is talking about the continent of Asia.” Only the Kabbalists know he is referring to the physicality because in Kabbalah, within Alchemy, the physical body is called Malkuth, the Kingdom, which is in Assiah or the world of action and matter. It is also called Adamah, which is the ground. It has many names. So Assiah, the world of action and matter, is precisely the physical body.
Again, the seven levels of Consciousness correspond to the seven virtues or churches or chakras of Revelation in each of the seven bodies. Ultimately these seven levels of Consciousness in each of the seven bodies of the true human being changes with the annihilation of our animal mind, ego or Kain in each of the seven infra-conscious levels in Klipoth underneath Malkuth, where our Consciousness - Hebel הבל lies dead to the Spirit. This is why it is written:
And Jehovah said to him, `Therefore – every one who kills Kain seven times shall be avenged (in each of the seven lower sephiroth).’ - Genesis 4: 15
This means that within our physicality, precisely in Klipoth, our infraconsciousness, subconsciousness and unconsciousness, we have Habel, our soul, our breath, divided into 49 levels, so we have to clean the 49 levels of our protoplasmic mind. Why? Because that mind is Kain. Kain killed Habel. So, in other words when Kain killed Habel he took the seven breaths, the seven souls of each body of the seven, and conditioned those souls according to materialism in the spheres of hell. So we need to purge, to withdraw those virtues or breaths from hell, Klipoth, our infraconsciousness, subconsciousness and unconsciousness, and to restore them in every body of the seven bodies, as each body has seven breaths; so 7 x 7 = 49 breaths, this is what is called Buddhist Annihilation or Purgatory.
The seven breaths or souls are the opposite of the seven deadly sins or seven roots of sinfulness of Kain, namely, lust, pride, envy, anger, laziness, envy and gluttony. Moreover, 7+7 = 14, the Fourteenth Arcanum is Chastity, transmutations, the waters.
Master Samael Aun Weor states that the defects more difficult to annihilate are those who trapped the seven breaths of Atman because, within the protoplasmic lunar bodies, those defects look like virtues, and they are, but trapped virtues that are being utilized by Kain in the wrong way. Who is this Atman? Atman is Chesed, the Spirit.
When I was analyzing all of these 49 levels and the defects related to my own Spirit, my own Innermost, my own Inner God, I was in Meditation and then I entered in ecstasy and my Being appeared and he said to me, “I have no ego” and then I said, “Yes, we will see; I still don’t understand.” When I returned to my body I said, “Yes, my Inner Being has no ego but where are those defects related to him because he is Atman/Chesed?” “Oh!” I said, “those defects are within me. Those defects that look like virtues are within me in my mind. He is clean, but that part, those levels of my Spirit were within me when I fell and are within Kainan, my mind”. It doesn’t mean that if you go to the Spirit you will find spirits there that are very bad. No! The Spirit is always pure, but unfortunately certain parts of that Spirit are within you trapped within your Kain, in your mind, in your ego, and those are the virtues that we use in the wrong way. In order to discover that, I was looking at him and at the same time I was teaching knowledge, Gnosis, to a certain group of Gnostics . I was telling them something that he, my Being, disagreed with. And when I looked at him I was trying to interpret. He said, “That is ridiculous, it is ego” but not his ego in me, rather ego in me that looked like a virtue, you know? An example; you are walking in the street and you find a beggar, right? “Please give me money, I need to eat,” and then you as a good Christian or Gnostic that you are, you say, “How much do you need?” The beggar says, “Give me $1”. You say, “Okay”, and you give him this. You helped a beggar and you keep walking and you say to yourself, “I am good.” Goodness is Gedulah, another name for Chesed which means “charity.” You have to be charitable and that is good, right? Then you keep walking. Is that good? Yes, right? Then without you knowing it that beggar turns around, collects the money and says, “Oh! now I have $10 and I have enough to buy drugs.” So unconsciously you helped that beggar, that drug addict, to collect the money to buy more drugs. So in other words, you did not do good, you did evil but you didn’t know that. This is what my Being was teaching me.
In order to do good you have to know how to do good. There are many people who do charitable work, many good things, but people utilize that charity in the wrong way; so we have to awaken. So how do you know what to do? When you are walking in the street, how do you know if this person really needs to buy something to eat? How do you know if he is really telling the truth or is he a person who is lying in order to buy alcohol or marijuana? You have to awaken which means that when you are reaching the level of Atman, your Spirit, Chesed, Gedulah, Goodness, you develop certain senses where you feel the honesty of the person in front of you or the tricky dishonest person who is trying to take your money in order to feed his or her vices. In this day and age we find a lot of those people. So charity and compassion to do good is positive, but we have to know how. This is why the world is as it is, because a lot of people take advantage of good hearted people who utilize their virtues in the wrong way. So you see that to be a Christian, to be a Muslim, to be a Jew or a real Buddhist is not a matter of action in the real world; doing good which in the long run is bad. We have to know how to utilize virtues. As the Book of Revelation states, you have to awaken, and that is a process.
So when you meditate, enquire about that because we have many virtues, positive actions that we perform in this physical world that belong to this level of Chesed which we do in the wrong way because we do not know how to do it. That is why Master Samael Aun Weor explains that you have to go deep down in Meditation and to comprehend in the 49 levels of your mind, your Kain, that defect. In this case, that virtue, right? You say, “Oh! it’s my virtue”. No it is a defect that utilizes your virtue in the wrong way. This is precisely why this Tree is called Good & Evil. First, in the beginning you cannot see the good that you do in the wrong way, you can only see the evil and there is a lot of evil we do. Then we start analyzing and as we go deeper, deeper and deeper, then we go into other levels and when we reach the level of Chesed then you see your Father perfect and full of virtues. When you return into the physical world you say, “I want to imitate my Atman, my God. He is always charitable, perfect” and then you go there in the physical world imitating your Father which is good, but imitating him consciously, not stupidly, and doing charity and good things for people who do not need it and you think, “Oh! Yes, I am good because I did that." What is a good charity at our level? To give out the doctrine. This is a good charity because we are talking against Kain. We want to resuscitate Habel, the seven levels of Habel in each body, the 49, in order to reach perfection. Do you follow that? It is an internal work and that is why God says the one that kills Kain has to be punished seven times, and Lamech who is good for nothing says, “Well, if Kain was punished seven times then I have to be punished 7 x 7,” which means it is worse. We really are Lamech, right? If we succeed in Killing our inner Kain then our Adam-brain and Eve-genitalia will come and engender Seth, as it is written:
And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth. For, said she, God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel; for Cain slew him. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name (אנוש Enosh) human: then began men to be called like (Elohim, who bears) the name Iod-Havah." - Genesis 4: 25, 26
The true human being (אנוש Enosh) emerges within from שאת Sat or שת Seth, from the sexual alchemical and psychological work we have to do.
So that is precisely the meaning of the alchemical, psychological explanation of Adam & Eve, Kain & Habel and Seth; who was the good son, which can be seen because it says Seth had a son and his name was Enoch or Enosh. We have explained in other lectures that this Enoch or Enosh means “Human Being” or enlightened Master who is born within us. When the Bible talks about the genealogy of Adam & Eve, Kain & Abel, Seth and all the other individuals who appear as descendants of Adam, comprehend that this is a psychological genealogy. We have to learn how to read the Bible from this point of view, in order to comprehend Genesis. This is how the lost paradise must be understood. We are not going to go into the entirety of the genealogy here because we already have, and explained it little by little in the first lecture of this series; in this lecture we are continuing these explanations, little by little, so that you may understand that these elements of the book of Genesis are within, internal, psychological, and not outside of us. Do not think, “Adam and Eve were a certain couple who lived a long time ago in a beautiful garden.” The garden is your body. Adam is your brain. Havah/Eve is your sexual energy. Kain is your mind - sinful, animal mind - that was born because you broke the law. Habel is that soul who starts knowing Good and Evil and pleases God, your Inner God, because the good thing about this work is when you start knowing yourself then you say, “Oh! this Kain is really very strong in me, this mind is very strong, but I have to keep patience” because as the Master Jesus says,
“With patience you will possess your souls.”
What souls? Habel Habelim, the Nephesh, Ruach and Neshamah, these are the souls that we have to possess, but we have to do a lot of work in sexual Alchemy in order to create the solar bodies, that we may possess them.
This is how we return into the Lost Paradise first and then later on we return into the Absolute Abstract Space triumphant, enlightened, because did the work within.
It is not that we believe in this because this is not a matter of believing. It is easy to believe. To do is a difficult thing. This “doing” is physical, psychological and spiritual and we need to make that connection. This “connection” is what we said before, we have separated our souls from our Being and now we need to reconnect ourselves to our Spirit again. How do we say that in Latin? In Latin we call it “religare” which is translated into English as “religion.” It means to unite again, to reconnect, to again bond the Soul with the Spirit, but this is a long work.
The one who has to be annihilated is Kain. Kain has to be killed and annihilated because he is just an animal inside of us. This is why Master Samael Aun Weor said, “We have to kill Kain which is the Moon, the mind.” Do not look for Kain outside of yourself. You carry that in your brain, it is inside of you, very much alive and enjoys killing Habel every day because Kain kills Habel each day through his animal behavior; from when we are born until we die. Kain likes to believe in God. Kain thinks that by believing in God it is done, he is going to return to Paradise and return to the Absolute. He thinks “I have returned here to return to Paradise, Eden and to the Absolute because I believe in Jesus. That is easy.” This is what Kain thinks. However, it is written in the Bible that Kain has to be killed, annihilated and we have to suffer the transformation inside of us, then we will be triumphant. The Kain that we have is very fat.
As I’ve told you about the experience with my Inner Being who told me, “I have no ego” and then after hearing that I realized, “Yes, of course, you don’t have ego, but I have it and that is why I am in disgrace because those virtues that you utilize wisely, I utilized them in a very stupid way.” Why? Because of my Kain, so, I have had to learn how to develop that in order to do good with cognizance and not just mechanically as many people do or as we do, in other words.
Questions and Answers
Student: So earlier on in the lecture on the slides it describes how the Cherubim with the flaming sword was positioned east of Eden and later on it said that Kain was exiled into the land of Nod which is east of Eden which implies that Eden from the perspective of Nod is to the West. Samael Aun Weor says in The Revolution of Beelzebub that you had on that same slide that the door to Eden is always in the East so why do we have Moses saying one thing and Samael saying another?
Instructor: Samael said: “Therefore, the woman is towards the east of us, because she has (the Yoni) the door of Eden, and this door is always towards the East.” So, this is perfectly explained. The womb of the woman is Eden, is Yesod, the fourth dimension; in Hebrew Eden means “bliss.” This humanity came out of the womb of a woman or out of Eden, right? Nature always recapitulates and repeats events, thus we came out through the East, as physically we came from the woman’s yoni. Physically speaking we came out through our mother’s yoni. So Master Samael says Eden is the woman’s womb, because the woman’s yoni is the door of Eden. We came out because we were inside her womb, we were happy, she nourishes us inside there, right? Thus, analogy tells us that, as when we came out of the womb of our mother and entered into this physical world where we all are miserable and suffer a lot, likewise, when we were in Eden, the womb of Mother Nature, we were happy, but we exited, because we fornicated. So, like any other being, we were happy when we were in Eden, her womb, right? Thus, from her womb which is the East, we fell into Malkuth which is the West, right?
Now, from another angle, in the circle of Malkuth, the earth, we experience sunset and sunrise, in other words, west and east; so, the land of Nod that is on the front east of Eden, is Malkuth, the West, where the sun sets, and sinks into Limbo or Hell. As it is written:
“What profit has a man of all his labour which he takes under the sun (or the land where the sun sets)? One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth abides for ever. The sun also arises, and the sun goes down, and rashly to his place where he arose.” - Ecclesiastes 1: 3-5
So, because of Fornication, through the doors of sex, we are again and again leaving Yesod, Eden, the East where the sunrises, which as you said is Malkuth, which relates to East and West, right? But it is not only related to Malkuth; remember that Klipoth is within Malkuth, because Nod, is Limbo which is in Klipoth. It is written:
“Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth (Malkuth); and from thy face shall I be hid; and (through the laws of return and recurrence) I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth. And Cain went out from the presence of יהוה, and dwelt in the (wandering) land of Nod (Limbo), on the front east of Eden.” - Genesis 4: 14, 16
Nod is Limbo. This means that before falling into Limbo, Kain as any animal elemental, was living in the terrestrial Paradise of the fourth dimension, but when Kain killed Habel, he fell into the land of Nod which is Limbo, the first sphere of hell, the abode of the ego, and became a fugitive and a vagabond in Malkuth, the earth.
Presently, we all came from Limbo, the land of Nod and take physicality, yet, irrational animals come from Eden. When we intellectual animals die where do we go? We go back to Nod, to Limbo, and from Limbo we return again into this physical world, wearing a new physical body.
And where is that Kain found his spouse? Kain found his spouse in the land of Nod, which is Limbo. This means that Kain, our animal intellectual mind found his wife and fornicated with her in Limbo. Thus, this Kain, our animal intellectual mind, finds a female in the land of Nod, but what do we find in the land of Nod? In the land of Nod, which is in Klipoth, we find the swarm or generations of Lilith and Nahemah, or phantom swarm of Adah עדה and Zillah צלה both wives of Lamech. Because it is written that Lamech, who is good for nothing, had two wives in the Land of Nod because he was the generation of Kain. So, in other words, Hell, Klipoth, Limbo, Nod, is where we subconsciously live. Physically we see the Sun here, but when we die where do we go? Do we go to Heaven? No! But that is where people would like to go, they say: “We would like to go to Heaven.” The truth is that we all go to the land of Nod which is Limbo. We have 108 opportunities to return into the West, this physical world, in order to do what we have to do; and what do we have to do? We have to annihilate Kain in order not to return into Nod because the opposite of Nod is Eden.
Thus, between Nod and Eden we find Malkuth, the West, in other words, between the land of Nod (Limbo), which is Klipoth, Gehenna, that is on the front east of Eden and Yesod which is Eden, is Malkuth, the face of the earth. Comprehend, since the land of Nod is within the entrails of the earth, and the earth is Malkuth, both are the opposite of Yesod, which is Eden. This is how all of this is hidden in the book of Moses. So when Master Samael explained that, if you know Alchemy and Kabbalah it is obvious, but people do not know Alchemy and Kabbalah and they just do not understand that the West is Malkuth, where we physically live, the East, where the sun rises, is Eden; but further down, on the front east of Eden, that is, the West, the other side, where the sun sets into the entrails of Malkuth, is Limbo. Limbo is ruled by the Moon and Yesod is ruled by the Moon too. Malkuth is also ruled by the Moon. Even Hod is ruled by the Moon, so, in other words we all are lunatics.
Student: In relation to happiness and how we come into this reality to develop that sense of what it means to be happy. I was wondering how are you defining happiness? Is it a mental abstraction idea?
Instructor: Well, happiness is something we have to experience. In this physical world what people call happiness is brutal enjoyment of pleasures like drinking. Apparently, they are happy when they are drinking and called getting drunk or smoking marijuana or using drugs, to be happy, thus, they think that vice is happiness. But this is just brutal bestiality. Happiness itself is something that is born within. We were in that happiness in the beginning when we were in the bosom of the eternal Cosmic Father, but we did not know anything about that. It is similar, for instance, if an ant enters right now through that gap underneath the door and we are celebrating a wedding and everybody is happy. The ant enters there and walks in, but nobody notices that the ant enters there because it is so small and that ant has no idea of the happiness or enjoyment we are having because we are at a party. However, if that ant works upon itself and becomes a human being and knows about that, it is different, right? So the same thing with the Monads, within the bosom of the Father they enjoy happiness but they have no idea what happiness is; they are inside the bosom and they ignore many things and that is why the Cosmic Common Universal Father expelled them into the universe in order for them to develop cognizance. When they return they enjoy happiness like the Prodigal Son and they see that really the place where they were is something so beautiful but they did not have knowledge about such beauty before. So that is why every single particle of that Absolute Abstract Space has the opportunity to acquire cognizance, but there is free will. It is not something that we have to do by force. You have to do it with your own will and that is why Master Jesus says,
“Many are called but few are chosen.”
Who is the one who chooses? It is yourself, when you do the work. We are here because we choose to be here, because our Inner Being wants for us to develop cognizance and to return, to go back.
There are many people who do not care about this and they call this just an illusion, they say: “I don’t want to waste my time on these superstitions. I want to make money and be a billionaire, right?” They think that is the goal of life. Imagine exiting out of the Absolute Abstract Space with a Consciousness in order to crystallize as a Human Being only to make money. Is that the goal of life? Come on... then I would like to be born as a bank, right? Money is necessary, it is necessary, but we have to put our feet on the ground. We need money in order to eat, to pay the rent because this is how this society has developed. Yes, we need money but do not identify with it. There are many people who do not have too much money and they are happy at their own level, of course.
Student: You talked about mistakes, we all make mistakes and how the gods had made mistakes. We know about the kundabuffer mistake with Archangel Sakaki, right? So can you talk about that?
Instructor: There were, in the time of Lemuria, the souls of certain Monads that realized that if they do not do the alchemical work, they will sink into devolution so, therefore, because they have no interest in self-realization they wanted to commit suicide since they knew that sooner or later they will eventually sink down. This is a story that is written in many levels and that we have to comprehend because it is our duty to self-realize, but it is not by force and there are many Monads who do not want realization. This cosmic process has to be followed, has to be performed by many Monads whether they like it or not. There are 3,000 cycles (x 108 lifetimes) of opportunities in order for any Monad to do what they have to do. In the end if the Monad does not do it, that is its choice but at least they had the 3,000 cycles of opportunities.
In the akashic records of every single manifestation on every planet, there are many stories of mistakes made by certain Monads who were already self-realized where they committed mistakes, but those mistakes were at a higher level. So there are many things to be corrected in order to reach perfection, there are many karmic ways of acquiring it. The rules are given but we are not forced to follow. This is the point and the beauty of it, because the Absolute Abstract Father gives us freedom so when we return into the bosom of the Father after losing 3,000 times of devolution, then we have nobody to blame but ourselves. You had the opportunity, you never wanted it so this is it, you lost it and you return as a failure. There are others Monads who are not like that. They return in every cycle and they say, “I have to do the work in order to return to the Father as a conqueror.” So in the bosom of the Father there are the Elohim who are the conquerors, but there are other Monads there who never liked to do that. So, if they wanted just to live life like everybody here... what can we do? Personally, I don’t like that, but there are other people who like it and I respect if they don’t want to do it, that is okay. I want to do it though. I want to teach this and to search for those souls who want to do it too because we have to help and this is what we do. We are at the end of this root race. How many are going to follow this path? Who knows because that depends on the will of each one of us.
Student: About Kain, the intellect and sensations; the intellect depends on sensations, thus Kain thinks that sensations relate to happiness. Even our tridimensional psychology is based on it, likewise our abstract thoughts are nourished from this material world.
Instructor: That is a very good point because our own particular Kain thinks that happiness relates to all the sensations from our five senses. Kain states, if we are happy, it is because of what the five senses are giving us, comfort, etc. Everything that we see in this physical life is filling our minds and many people feel good only with that, they say, “This is enough for me.” Yet, when we start developing the senses of Habel, the Soul, we see that this three dimensional world is not the only thing theres is, and that there are more things beyond. Then we penetrate into the bosom of that which we call real happiness which has nothing to do with the satisfaction of the senses in this physical world which is the only thing that people know. This is why people want to make money in order to have a nice house. They say, “This is the American dream,” right? But really for many people the American dream is the American nightmare because they cannot get it. So Kain also has nightmares.
Student: Can you talk a little bit about the difference between H’Adam and Adam Kadmon?
Instructor: Adam Kadmon is the group of all the souls, Elohim who have acquired perfection. This is called Adam Kadmon and relates to the first triangle of the Tree of Life. Remember that the first triangle of the Tree of Life is Kether, Chokmah, Binah. That is Adam Kadmon. People say, “But the whole Tree of Life is Adam Kadmon.” Yes, Kether rules the first triangle, Chokmah the second triangle and Binah, the third triangle so the whole Tree of Life is Adam Kadmon self-realized. Anyone that self-realizes his/her whole Tree of Life is an Adam Kadmon in him/herself and the group who form all of them is what the Master called “the Army of the Voice,” the Elohim that in the beginning of the aurora of this Cosmic Day were creating the Universe. That is Adam Kadmon, but we, the individuals down here, we are H’Adam. Not Kadmon because in order to be Kadmon we have to self-realize all the Sephiroth within, that is, to be cognizant of what I am talking about, you see? Because it is one thing is to hear about it and another thing to be cognizant about it. When you are cognizant about it, you understand everything and you say, “Okay, this is it, I realize it.” Before that, we are just intellectual Kabbalists, but we have to become intuitive Kabbalists.
Well, thank you very much and we invite you to meditate.
