This is a transcription of the audio lecture Kabbalah of Genesis 14 The Ark of Noah, Part 2 originally given live on Gnostic Radio, which you can download for free.
Following the sequence of the lecture on the Ark of Noah Part One, we are going to extend the topic and associate the Ark of Noah with Jonah and the whale and the coming of the Son of Man.
In the previous lecture and in many lectures that we have given in the Gnostic tradition, we always emphasize that this doctrine is based on two sciences:
- The science of the Tree of Good and Evil
- The science of the Tree of Life
We always emphasize that the Bible is strictly a book based on Kabbalah and Alchemy. Alchemy is related with the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and Kabbalah with the Tree of Life. So that is why we always state that when symbolically the Bible is talking about wood, we have to think that it is always in direct relation with the Tree of Life or the Tree of Knowledge. Of course, there are other types of trees; symbolic trees related with other sciences. But the foundation of all of them is always in relation with the Tree of Life and the Tree of Good and Evil. That is why we stated in the previous lecture that the famous Ark of Noah is related with the wood of the Tree of Knowledge, which is that wood that the Bible calls gopher wood. The word gopher is related with sulfur, which is a symbol of fire.
The Mother Letters
In Kabbalah, in Gnosis, we always study the three Hebrew mother letters related with the three elements. The first letter that we always like to show is the letter Shin [ש]. The letter Shin symbolizes fire. The letter Shin is made of three letters: three ו Vavs, which are vertical lines, and on top of these lines there are three י Iods (or Yuds), which are just dots. These symbolize three flames. The letter Shin is related with the first triangle of the Tree of Life: Kether, Chokmah, Binah.
We can also extend the three ו Vavs to encompass the whole Tree of Life because, as you know, the Tree of Life has three columns. The three columns are related with the three primary forces, since at the very top of them you find Kether, Chokmah, and Binah. In the middle is Kether, on the right is Chokmah, and on the left is Binah.
Remember that Malkuth means kingdom, and that when we refer to Malkuth, the kingdom, we refer to the planet Earth, because Malkuth, the kingdom, is related with the four kingdoms: the mineral kingdom, the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, and the human kingdom. Those four kingdoms are reflected in the human organism, in the human body, the physical body. That is why, when we refer to Malkuth, we always refer to the physical body as well. You will find these kingdoms within you, and we explain about that in many lectures.
This kingdom of Malkuth has a superior part that is called the “foundation,” which is Yesod. Yesod is the superior aspect of the planet Earth or the superior side of the physical body. It is referred to as the vital body, or the ethereal body. Yesod is symbolized by the letter מ Mem, which is the letter with which we say in Hebrew מים Mayim, which means water. The letter מ Mem is the symbol of water.
This is very important to understand because the whole Ark of Noah is the symbol of salvation. What is written in the Bible, in the Old and New Testaments, is related with the Kabbalah. The Kabbalah is the science of numbers, and in Hebrew every single letter is equal to a number. That is why we have to study the Hebrew letters - which we have already taught in the course about the Twenty-two Arcana [and The Alphabet of Kabbalah], but here we are synthesizing in order to understand the message of this Ark of Noah, or Jonah and the whale.
If we look, for instance, in the physical body, then we find that this vital force of Yesod is reflected in the sexual organs. In the physical planet Earth, the vital force or the fourth dimension called Yesod, is reflected in the oceans, in the lakes, in the rivers.
That is why when you read in the Bible about a lake, about a river, or about the seas or ocean, immediately you have to associate that with Yesod. If you refer to the human organism then of course it has to be associated with the living waters that we have in the sexual organs. Because remember that from those waters is how that spirit that was hovering upon its surface was making the whole creation, as it is written in the book of Genesis. So always understand that when the Bible talks about water, it is always related with the sexual energy. That is why in Kabbalah these sexual waters are called Schamayim, usually translated in the Bible as “heaven.”
These waters, שמים Schamayim [Shin (fire) = Mayim (water)], are fiery waters, or waters related with fire. So, those are in relation with the sexual waters. These sexual waters are above and below. And this is something that we have to understand, because in the book of Genesis in the beginning it is stated in the second day, that the Ruach Elohim that was hovering on the face of the waters divided the waters from the waters – the inferior from the superior, in order to make the first firmament. In Kabbalah that symbol is represented in the letter א Aleph.
א Aleph is the symbol of air, which is the other symbol in relation with the three main letters in Kabbalah: those three letters are ש Shin (fire), מ Mem (water), and א Aleph. Aleph is air or wind, which is spirit. That is why when we talk about Aleph, wind, or spirit, we refer to that Ruach Elohim. Ruach [רוח] means “spirit” in Hebrew . Elohim [ אלוהים] means “Gods and Goddesses.” The spirit of the Elohim that was hovering in the beginning on the surface of the water, when it divided the waters from the waters, the first letter appeared -- the letter א Aleph.
The letter א Aleph is made by a transversal letter Vav that is united by two Iods, one right above and one left below. The two Iods of the letter Aleph are the symbol of the two waters: the superior waters and inferior waters, divided by the wind, which is symbolized by a transversal letter Vav.
The letter Vav in the human organism is represented in the spinal column.
So here you find then, the three main letters: Aleph – air, Mem – water, and Shin – fire. By studying these three is how we proceed in the study of the Ark of Noah and the Tree of Life, in order to understand the message.
In the gopher wood, with which Noah made the Ark, we find the sulfur, “gopher.” In Hebrew , that is the meaning. The wood itself is the physical Malkuth, the physical body, as we said. That is why in the Mayan Popol-Vuh it is stated that the Gods created man with wood. The Nahuas also said that Gods created man with wood. But you have to understand that the wood referred to is not physical wood, but the symbolic wood of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, which is the sexual energy. That is why when God says to Noah “Make thee an Ark of gopher wood,” it is better if we translate this as follows: “make of thee, an Ark, of gopher wood.” That means that you already are with the elements with which you can build the Ark, and you have to make of your physical body an Ark. That is the message there. “Make of thee...” Because if you write, “make for thee”; for means that you have to make outside of you something else. But if you say “make of thee,” that means that you have to make of your own self an Ark, and that is precisely the message in the Bible about the Ark of Noah.
Noah and Jonah
Yeshua the Son of Nun (Fish) = Jesus the Son of Ichthus (Fish)
As we explained previously, God is talking to Noah, and Noah is a symbol of the Nous Atom that is in the left ventricle of the heart. The Nous Atom is what the Bible calls in the New Testament “the Son of Man.” The Son of Man and Noah are the same thing. But in order to prove what we are stating here, we are going to read for you a passage from Matthew in which Master Jesus is talking about Jonah and the Son of Man.
Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah: For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. - Matthew 12: 38-40
So here you see how Master Jesus connects Jonah and the Son of Man, the whale's belly and the heart of the earth.
The Son of Man, the true man, has seven bodies: Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malkuth. Malkuth represents the physical body, and within the physical body of the true man, you find that which in Kabbalah is called Zauir Anpin.
The Zauir Anpin is precisely the true man.
The Zauir Anpin is represented by the letter Vav, which is also the number 6; this is why it is a Being compounded with six parts: Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod, Yesod within the Ark (the physical body). This is why the whole Zauir Anpin in Kabbalah is symbolized by the letter Vav, that is the extension of the letter Iod, which represents Kether.
Kether is the center of gravity of the first triangle: Kether, Chokmah, and Binah, represented in the letter ש Shin. The letter Shin represents the three primary forces; it illustrates three Vavs, three extensions of the letter Iod. This shows us that the Zauir Anpin is the man who manifests the three primary forces of the universe.
The three primary forces of the universe are Kether, Chokmah, and Binah. In Christianity they are called Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In the Hindu pantheon they are represented with the names of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. You find different names representing these three primary forces that in Kabbalah are Kether, Chokmah, and Binah, and are related with the letter Shin, as we are explaining.
So here you find, as we explained, that the letter ש Shin is made of three letter Vavs. The letter Vav is a vertical line that represents the spinal column. Shin is a symbol of fire. So that is why in the name יונה , in the name of the prophet Jonah, in Hebrew , you find the first letter Iod and the second letter Vav. In Hebrew you do not find vowels. Iod and Vav make the sound IO, or Jo, as it is translated. And the next letter in the name Jonah is the letter Nun, which is the letter N in Latin. And then the last letter is the letter Hei. This is how you write “Jonah.”
Yet, the book of the prophet Jonah explains more about the mysteries of the words that we are explaining here.
At the end of the word Jonah we find Noah. Jonah is precisely that prophet that is swallowed by a whale; which is exactly the same symbol of the Ark, but in different ways. When you study Kabbalah, you know that the whale of Jonah is indeed the physical body and also refers to the planet Earth, because Malkuth, the kingdom, is the Ark, is the whale, the physical body, and the planet Earth. These are all hidden symbols within these allegories. So when you read about the prophet Jonah, or the Ark of Noah, you have to start interpreting from the very top of the Tree of Life. We are giving here just the basics in order for you to understand - as we are explaining - what the Ark of Noah is, and as we continue to explain.
The Four Worlds
- The first is the world of Atziluth, which is the world of the archetypes; Atziluth, where you find the very essence of God, and we associate that always with Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit; the world of the Logos.
- The second world is the world of Briah. Briah is in relation with the world of creation -- the world of creation is the manifestation of Atziluth.
- The third is the world of Yetzirah or world of formation.
- The last world among the four is Assiah, and here you find precisely the similitude of this word with the word Asia, the continent of Asia. That is why many writers who do not know anything about Kabbalah, when they find this word Assiah, they think that they are talking about the continent of Asia.
Assiah is represented only by the Sephirah Malkuth. When the book of revelation states: “What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Assiah.” This is referring to the planet Earth, Malkuth or the physical body; which could be represented of course by any continent. But, if you do not know Kabbalah, you think that it is talking about seven churches or temples made of brick that are in Asia, and that is wrong, it is not that. Even though historically, those temples existed. But this is how the Initiates or Kabbalists hid everything in order for those with eyes to see, to understand. Or to have ears to hear, to understand.
When you write the name the holy name of God in Kabbalah, it is written with four letters: יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei. From left to right, this is how you write the name of God in Hebrew : Iod Hei Vav Hei. The letter Hei is repeated twice. Many Bibles translate יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei as Jehovah, or Yehveh, or Iod-Havah. There are many ways to translate that name. We in Gnosticism, we like to say Iod-Havah. That is the real translation of that name, which in many Bibles is translated as Jehovah. Well, as you see, the holy name of God has four letters.
So then the world of Assiah, Malkuth, is represented by the letter Hei. Simple -- this is when you do know Kabbalah, because the whole Four Worlds of Kabbalah are based on the holy name of God: Iod Hei Vav Hei.
This is why we always say, there is one Hei above and one Hei below. And this is how we say it, because Iod represents the masculine positive energy, and Heh the feminine receptive energy of God above -- yin-yang. But below, the Vav represents the man, as we explained the true man with the bodies inside, and the second Hei represents Malkuth, which is the woman, or the feminine body of the woman; any feminine aspect in the physical plane is represented by Hei. Thus Hei could be a woman, your mother, or the sexual organs, which are feminine, because according to Kabbalah, Adam is the brain and Eve is the sexual organs. That is why it is written that Chavah, Eve, was the creator of the living beings, creator of all this life.
And Adam called his wife's name Chavah (Eve); because she was the mother of all living. – Genesis 3: 20
We always come from our mother, who is Eve, but also we come from the seed, the zoosperm, the letter Nun of Chavah or sexual organs of our father. As you see, the letter Nun (zoosperm and ovum) is associated with Chet, which represents Chavah, the sexual organs of both man and woman (Vav and Zayin); these are symbols of Alchemy in order to understand and comprehend what the Ark of Noah is. In the name נח Noah you find the letter Chet at the end, and the letter Nun at the beginning.
What is the letter נ Nun? In the Old Testament in the Bible, you find that there is a prophet called Joshua [יהושוע], which means Yeshua, Jesus, the son of Nun. Joshua is that initiate who takes over after Moses disappears. And it is written, "Joshua, the son of Nun נון" or Jesus the son of Nun.
Nun in Aramaic is fish. Nun always represents the fish, and that is why ancient Christians, as you know, represented their Messiah as a fish. That is in ancient Christianity. The Ichthus, the fish, the dolphin was the ancient symbol of Christianity, in the beginning of Christianity, because the Nun, the fish represents the seed, the sperm.
Now to Abraham and his seed (sperm) were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds (offspring), as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed (sperm), which is Christ. - Galatians 3: 16
Yes, within the Nun is hidden the Messiah, as it is stated in Kabbalah. Nun, the Messiah, the heir to the throne of God, and here precisely is another symbol. Messiah is fire, because it means anointed one, the one that is anointed with fire. That is the Messiah. Nun is the origin of the Messiah. Moreover, presently, in Christianity those women that are in monasteries are called Nuns. N-U-N. Nuns. A Nun. Why? Because a Nun is a symbol of that woman that delivers all her sexual energy to Jesus, to the Messiah. But in this case that Nun represents the sperm, the ovum. That is why every monk, or every Nun, is required to be in Chastity, meaning keeping the sexual energy, in order for the heir of the throne to rise in their spinal column, because the throne of God is the central nervous system of the physical body.
The Ark, or the central nervous system, that Ark of that physical body, is the spinal column. It is called the cerebrospinal nervous system. The heir to the throne means that the sperm when transmuted into energy rises in the spinal column and takes the throne of God, the central nervous system, and commands the body. This is precisely why we find that the letter Nun is in the work of Noah, because that Nun is precisely the seed, the fish, the whale that swallows Jonah (the dove, the Holy Spirit hidden within the seed). Now you understand what that whale is, what that fish is, that was created according to the book of Genesis in the fifth day.
The fifth day is in relation with the fifth Sephirah Tiphereth - counting the Sephiroth from the bottom to the top of the Tree of Life. It is the human soul. So when we say that Jonah was swallowed by the whale, we are saying that Jonah was swallowed by the letter Nun. How is the soul going to swallow by the letter Nun? The only way is by transmuting the energy. The letter Nun represents the sperm and the ovum, and that sperm and that ovum is in Malkuth, in the physical body, in Hei. As we said, Assiah represents the letter Hei, of Iod Hei Vav Hei.
Thus to be swallowed by the whale means to enter into the Ark, to enter into the mysteries that we are explaining here.
Noah enters into the Ark as you are right now: you are entering into the mysteries of your own body, your own physicality. It is not literal, like people think that Jonah was swallowed by a big fish. Understand: that big fish is a symbol of the sexual potency that everyone has in the physical body. but united with the Iod and with the Vav of the Sephiroth above.
“EEEE”: the letter Iod represents the first triangle. Vav represents the sixth Sephirah of the true man. Here you have the IIIIOOO, and then the letter Nun which always is that fish that swims in the letter Mem.
The letter Mem represents water. So the fish is in the waters, and we explain that Mem is in relation with the Sephirah Yesod: sex, the womb. So when we say that Jonah was swallowed by the letter Nun, by the fish, by the whale, obviously that whale was swimming in Mem, the womb. And that is why the Bible says that the great deluge, the great flood, was 40 days and 40 nights.
That number 40, in Kabbalah, is Mem. As we said in the beginning, all the Hebrew letters are associated with numbers. Any Kabbalist when he sees a letter knows it is a number immediately, and associates that with symbols. The letter Mem is 40, so when we say that Jonah - as IO, the Iod and Vav, working with God - entered into the whale (the Nun), we are saying that he entered into the womb (the Mem, the waters) of the letter Hei (the earth, the physical body, the woman, the uterus).
As it is written, Jonah was the son of Amittai, which is “the truth.” Amittai means truth, his own truth, my truth. Amittai means “my truth.” Not yours, not somebody else’s, but my own truth, that is Amittai. So Jonah was the son of Amittai, meaning that the whole work that we are going to read and study is your own truth, your own God, your inner self that you have to develop. You have to unite that truth to yourself. For this you have to enter into the whale, or you are swallowed by the whale, or by the Ark, which is the same as entering into the “Mem” of “Hei” (the womb of the earth).
This is how you understand why Master Jesus said: “This evil and adulterous generation.” When he says evil and adulterous generation, he is referring to those people who are sexually degenerated. In the text from which this is translated, sometimes it says “fornicator and adulterer generation,” or “this whoredom and adulterous generation.” Generally it is read as “evil and adulterous generation”. But you know that the translations of the Bible are sometimes done in accordance with the ideology or beliefs of the translator. Nevertheless, here Jesus said, “This whoredom and adulterous generation is asking for a sign.” The generation Jesus meant is us, he is referring to us, because we are sexually degenerated, we are fornicators, we are adulterers in all the ways.
So, we – a whoredom and adulterous generation - ask for a sign, but Master Jesus said that only one sign will be given unto us, unto this generation, and this is the sign of Jonah. Because as Jonah was three nights and three days in the belly of the whale, likewise the Son of Man will be in the womb of the earth.
The Inferno is the womb of Heaven. – Samael Aun Weor, The Pistis Sophia Unveiled
It is very clear here that when it is stated that Jonah, the Son of Man - who in us is the Nous Atom - was swallowed by the whale, he was swallowed by the earth; meaning, the alchemical work that we must do, which is the controlling of our sexual energy, is done with our heart. This is the only sign that is given unto us. If you start working with your sexual energy, with your Nous Atom of your heart, and know how to handle that force, then you will be free, liberated or saved from these polluted waters of this day and age.
Why? Let me read you another chapter. Master Jesus said:
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. - Matthew 24: 37-39.
“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” You see that, I told you that Noah and the Son of Man are the same. And in the previous chapter we said that Jonah and the Son of Man are associated as well. But here in this verse Master Jesus is associating Noah and the Son of Man, which we stated is the Nous Atom. He said, “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage.” It is pretty obvious that “marrying and giving in marriage” is associated with sex. Alas, in these present times as in the days that were before the flood everybody is enjoying the sexual act; presently people are in a flood of sexual degeneration because the tides of this evil and lustful generation are unbelievable. That is why it is written:
And Elohim saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented Jah-Chavah that he had made man on the earth (but not in heaven), and it grieved him at his heart. And Jah-Chavah said: I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth (but not from the face of heaven); both man (better said: intellectual beast), and (irrational) beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
But Noah (the Nous atom) found grace in the eyes of Jah-Chavah.
And the Elohim looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.And the Elohim said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before us; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, We will destroy them with the earth (meaning the civilization). – Genesis 6: 5-8, 12, 13
Likewise, we say that this humanity, the Aryan generation is also going to be destroyed by the waters of Noah. The waters of Noah are the superior waters that we need to bring down in order for us to change, because Noah is in relation with Tiphereth, in the heart; the soul in the heart, the Nous Atom, Noah.
You want to bring the waters of Noah into you in order to kill all your defects and vices and errors, but first you have to be in the Ark. You have to build the Ark. “Make of thee an Ark.” As we explained in the previous lecture, this is equal as to build the Son of Man with gopher wood, which is precisely the wood of the Tree of Good and Evil, the Tree of Knowledge. That is the wood of gopher, which is pure fire, with which you build a generation for you. You build the first son of Noah, Shem, who is represented in the left column of the Tree of Life in the Astral body, and then Ham who is related with Netzach, in the right column of the Tree of Life, and Japheth, who is Tiphereth in the central column. All of them come from the transmuted seed of Yesod, the Nun from Mem. You see, that is the generation of Noah, the three sons, the very foundation of the three columns of the Tree of Life that you need to build inside. Because the whole Ark is the whole Tree of Life that you have to have within, that you have to build, and that is why it is stated that Noah entered into the Ark with his three sons, the wives of his sons, and his wife.
Notwithstanding, you do not read any feminine name there. What was the name of the wife of Noah, what were the names of the wives of Shem, Ham and Japheth? There are no names, because Noah’s wife represents the sexual creative energy. This means that when Nous in the heart is working in you, that Nous, that Noah, is doing so with his wife and that wife is the letter Hei (the Nukva, Malkuth), the feminine aspect of Malkuth, transmuting the Nun, the fish, into energy. That is Noah. And then this is precisely how Noah is entering with his wife. That means that your Nous Atom has to work with his wife. Understand what I mean, because you might say “I have to work with my heart because in my heart is Noah and I have to be good, etc.” No, this is not what I meant, listen: you have to work with the wife of Noah because Noah entered with his wife and that wife is your sexual organs. Yes, the wife of Noah, the sexual organ, is the one that procreates, that gives birth inside, from Noah, from the Nous Atom, to the internal solar bodies that we are explaining here.
Understand that when the sexual organs are not guided by Nous, the soul falls into the abyss of Klipoth. And that is the symbol of the sinner Eve eating the fruit. That is why when Eve eats of the fruit of good and evil, she begets Cain. If you read the Bible you see that she begot Cain. It does not say that God begot Cain, no. It says:
And Adam (the brain) knew Eve (his genitalia) his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a (Ish, inverted fire, a luciferian) man from Jah-Chavah. – Genesis 4: 1
This means that (the bowels of) Eve (Malkuth, the physical body) is the one that is creating the luciferian man in Malkuth. Yes, when the sexual organ is used in the wrong way it creates wrong things, which are not by the will of God; as it is stated: “she conceived, and bare Cain.” So Eve (Adam’s genitalia) begot Cain. Cain represents the animal mind, the outcome of Fornication, the outcome of the orgasm, in other words; this was the fall of humanity, which by creating Cain polluted Abel, their psyche. The animal mind is Cain.
And she (the bowels of Eve, Malkuth, the physical body) again (through the orgasm) bare his brother Abel (a wicked soul). And Abel was a keeper of sheep (solar force from above), but Cain was a tiller of the ground (the lunar force from below the earth). - Genesis 4: 2
The psyche, the soul, is Abel, the other psychological aspect; both Cain and Abel are the outcome of the fall of Adam into Klipoth, the bowels of Eve, Malkuth (the tridimensional world).
This is why it is stated in Kabbalah that after the fall - when we fell in this sexual degeneration in which we are from the beginning - Adam the brain became in sexual intercourse with two women, Naamah and Lilith.
Naamah and Lilith are in relation with hell, with Klipoth. And this is how when we begin, when we enter into this wisdom, into this knowledge; we begin as having sex with Naamah and Lilith. Adam the brain, within which is Cain who has the knowledge of this corrupted civilization, is always teaching us how to fornicate, how to adulterate, how to be with prostitution, which is Naamah. We sometimes say Nahemah, but we can say Nahemah or Naamah, it is the same thing.
Yet, Lilith is worse. Lilith is the mother of homosexuality, lesbianism, incest, and all sexual violence. So all of us as represented in humanity are married or having intercourse with Lilith and Naamah, and it is precisely the Adam, the brain the one which receives the consequences of our sexual degeneration.
But it is written:
And Adam (the brain) knew (through white Tantra) his wife (genitalia) again; and she bare (in her bowels) a son, and called his name Seth: For the Elohim, said she (the sexual organ), hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel (the wicked soul), whom Cain (the animal mind) slew. – Genesis 4: 25
So, Eve (the Nukva, the genitalia, the earth, Malkuth, the physical body) has to give birth in his own kind; the sexual organs have to give birth in his own kind, that kind is the same creative solar force (the Tzalem) within the sexual energy, which arises from the Nous atom.
And Adam lived an hundred (first initiation of fire) and thirty years (of the second initiation of fire), and begat (in Yesod) a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth. - Genesis 5: 3
When you create generation of your own kind, it means you are creating according to Nous in your heart. Because when you do not create according to “Nous” your own kind that means that you are utilizing your sexual energy in the wrong way, you are committing Adultery.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. – Revelation 2: 4, 5
This is why Adultery is always related with the woman, with the feminine aspect that represents the sexual organs. When you utilize the sexual organs in the wrong way you are an adulterer or adulteress to “Nous” your own Being.
Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. – Revelation 2: 10
So that is the beginning of faithfulness. To be faithful is to be faithful to your own Being; thus, when you are not faithful to your own Being, that is the beginning of Adultery. And of course if you are an adulterer or adulteress to your own Being, you can be an adulterer or an adulteress to anybody.
That is why it is written that through Eve Adam has to generate birth to his own kind, which is his own Being, which is “Nous” Noah. So this is the meaning of the Ark, to enter into the Ark as Jonah entered into the whale, by doing the work of Nun. And this is why Master Jesus said:
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man (Nous atom) be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. - Matthew 24: 37-39.
“Until the day that Noah entered into the ark” means that until you know this knowledge you are eating and drinking as people say: “let us eat and drink for tomorrow we will die.” “Let us fornicate, commit Adultery because we will get old and we will go into the grave; we have to enjoy life.” “Let us marry and get married.” All of preset people have such an ideology, such an idiosyncrasy in their minds. We are degenerated until the moment when we decide to work with our Nous Atom and thus enter into the Ark.
You have to build your own Ark; you have to “make of thee an Ark.” This is how you start making your own salvation. Behold here, this is precisely the doctrine of Gnosis, since for us, the Gnostics , to be saved is not to believe in anything but to generate (Gene-sis).
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. - Matthew 16: 27
So, you can believe whatever you want to believe. Yet, to be saved is to be saved by your own works. If you are not working with your own waters, your own Noah… if that IO, that Iod and Vav is not entering within the Nun of your God, is not entering into the whale, it does not matter what you believe: you are not being saved because salvation relates to a practical work, alchemical work. To be saved is something you do when you open the doors to the Son of Man.
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. - Matthew 24: 39.
So, likewise, in this day and age you have to enter into the Ark of Noah, the mystery of Jonah. Because the Son of Man is the one who helps us. Behold how Jesus of Nazareth is associating the Son of Man with Jonah and the Son of Man with Noah. Jesus said:
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. - Matthew 24: 38, 39.
So, the fundamentalists are waiting for the Son of Man to come in the clouds, and they do not know that the clouds are the symbol of mystery. The Son of Man is the science that we are teaching here, the mystery of Kabbalah. This is how you enter into the mysteries in order to work with your Nous, with your Jonah, with your Noah, in order to make of thee an Ark, and to be saved of this sexual degeneration. Not the sexual degeneration that you see outside, because people always point outside. No: it is the sexual degeneration that you have within.
“And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away...”
If you enquire within your psyche, you find sexual degeneration. We have that in our (flood) blood, or as we say in this day and age, in our DNA. This is why Master Jesus said:
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. – Matthew 10:37
This does not mean that you are going to hate your family. No, it means going into your psyche, the root of your Fornication, Adultery, and all of that sexual degeneration that is in your “flood” blood, in the very marrow of your bones, your DNA; Yes, you have to fight against that. Since for salvation, as Noah you have to know how to build an Ark of wood, with gopher wood.
You have to know the measurements of your Ark. That is why in the previous lecture we said that the length of that Ark is 300 cubits. And when you study the letters you find that the letter Shin has the value of 300. It is talking about the letter Shin, fire. Such a flame of fire must extend from Malkuth to Kether, those are the three flames, the three columns, which could be represented also in the Caduceus of Mercury.
In the Caduceus of Mercury you find three serpents. Somehow in this day and age, with time people changed the serpent of the middle, which is the Kundalini, with a caduceus, with a spine, with just with a tube. But in the beginning that caduceus had three serpents, one in the middle and two entwined around it. And at the top of that caduceus was the brain. The two serpents are the representation of Ida and Pingala of Hinduism, which are entwined around the first serpent in the middle. That serpent that is in the middle is that serpent that healed the Israelites in the wilderness, the serpent that Moses was teaching them to worship, the serpentine fire that rises in the spinal column. Ida and Pingala are the Yin and Yang of Taoism, the two polarities that awake the third in the center, which together make the letter Shin.
The Three Factors
300 is associated not only with the length but also with the three factors of the revolution of the Consciousness. As it is written:
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me:
- let him deny himself,
- and take up his cross,
- and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. - Matthew 16: 24- 27
Yes, the Son of man (the Nous atom, Noah) shall reward every man according to his works. Listen, to deny oneself is to work with Chokmah, who is called the holy denying. When you affirm within yourself the will of God, that is to work with the holy denying, because in order to affirm the will of God within, you have to deny all the negativity that you have within, the negativity which push you to do wrong things, which are the pluralized ego. Thus to deny your self is to deny lust, anger, greed, pride, laziness, gluttony, envy, etc. That is to deny your self. Thus whosoever wants to come after Christ, let him deny himself.
“And take up his cross.” The cross is made with the union of two pieces of wood which represents the Tree of Good and Evil. The tree with which the cross of Christ is made is with the Tree of Good and Evil, talking in symbology in Alchemy. The vertical beam is the phallus, the horizontal beam is the vagina. When they are united in the sexual act, behold the cross that we have to take up daily. Behold, that is the cross of Christ. This is why Christ is crucified on Friday, whose name came from Freya, the Goddess of Love.
On the cross is written INRI, which is the fire, Shin: Ignis Natura Renovate Integra -- the fire renews nature constantly.
So by working daily in that cross of Chastity, Nous the Son of Man enters into the whale, into the Ark. This is how the man enters into the woman. That is why in many aspects we say that salvation is in the woman. And damnation is in the woman; for the man, of course. Because when the man enters the woman, he could be saved or could be dammed. If he fornicates, he is victim of the Tree of Good and Evil and eats the apple, or eats the forbidden fruit. But if he transmutes, he enters into the Ark. You see the two ways, whether you enter into the Ark or whether you eat from the Tree of Good and Evil and fall into Klipoth. These are the two ways.
Sex is the door into hell. Sex is the door into heaven. It depends on how you use the fire. Unfortunately, as you know this humanity is using the fire in the wrong way. We are degenerated.
So the right way is regeneration, the length of Shin, the fire, the sexual fire.
“And follow me.” To follow Jesus is to follow “Nous,” that is to work with Kether.
To work with Chokmah is to deny the desires of the heart.
To follow Christ is to do the will of God, Kether. That will is synthesized in the Ten Commandments written by Moses, that we have to follow, study it. Not memorize it but study it psychologically, alchemically.
So, “to deny himself, and to take up his cross daily, and follow me.” These are the three factors of the letter Shin, the three primary forces of the universe, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The width of the Ark is 50 cubits. Indeed, the width is related to the letter Nun. The width is Nun because it is between the man and the woman, through Nun, how Noah and his wife unite, how the three sons of Noah and their wives unite... Because the Nukva of the two polarities, Nun spreads, splits in two forces, the ovum and the sperm. The ovum is feminine, the sperm, or the zoosperm is masculine. Those are the two symbols of Nun (the width, 50) that are united by the water, in which you work. In the waters, because in order to unite the Nun from the column of the left and the Nun from the column of the right, the woman and the man, you have to do it through Yesod, you have to do it through the waters because Nun, the fish swims in the waters of Mayim and Schamayim, Mem, the letter Mem.
That is why we stated that symbolically the whole work has to be performed in 40 years, or 40 days. 40 is the value of Mem; it symbolizes always the length of the alchemical work you have to do with your sexual energy.
Now you understand why Master Jesus was 40 days fasting in the wilderness, and facing the devil, or Lucifer, in the wilderness; because Lucifer is the Leviathan, the sexual strength that works through the waters, thus Jesus precisely after being baptized in the waters of the river Jordan, after receiving the strength of Nun from Mem, the waters, he went into the wilderness and his own Lucifer appears to him, tempting him. The same thing happens with any initiate and all of us when we start working with the Nous Atom in the sexual act, with the Nun in Mem, that is, when you enter into the Nukva, the Ark, into those 40 days, symbolic days, we will be tempted by our own the devil or Lucifer; because the power of Lucifer is in the 9th sphere, in Yesod. When we read the Divine Comedy of Dante we read there how Dante finds Lucifer in the 9th sphere, in Yesod, in the center of the Earth. In other words, when you enter into the Ark, you are swallowed by Lucifer, or by the Leviathan. The Leviathan is your own sexual potency. Lucifer is the symbol of the sexual potency, whether in the man or in the woman. And when you start working within the waters of Yesod and enter into the Ark, you are working with Lucifer, within the center of the earth. You go into the Sheol and that is why you find that when Jonah is swallowed by the whale, he states in the book, I cry and pray to my God from the center, from the Sheol, the Sheol is hell, the 9th sphere. How come is he in the Sheol? He is in the Sheol because the whale takes him into the very bottom of the abyss, the fathomless sea.
Behold how beautiful the Bible is, how beautifully it is written! The whale is Nun, the sea is Mem, and IO, are the 2 polarities, man and woman, in the Ark. So when the sons of Noah and Noah go into the Ark, they are there with their four wives. That means that you have to be in Chastity, that your sexual energy, Shin, has to be risen, not only in the physical body, but in the Astral body, in the Mental body, and in the Causal body. All of their wives, their Nukva, all of those sexual forces of these three bodies plus the physical body have to rise up in their spinal column.
Notwithstanding, there are many fallen angels; as it is written in the book of Genesis that the children of God fell in love with women and they fell into sin. This is how it is written.
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. – Genesis 6: 1, 2
Therefore, when we enter into the Ark, we do not have to do what the children of God did in the past. The children of God are those who built inside the three bodies, Shem, Ham, and Japheth and thereafter fell. This is what you also find symbolically written:
And the sons of Noah that went forth of the ark were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread. And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the Jah-Chavah Elohim of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. Elohim shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. – Genesis 9: 18-27
Canaan and the Wine
When Noah is coming out of the flood after doing all the alchemical work that is written in symbols in the Bible, he planted a vine of grapes, made wine and drank it and became drunk, he became inebriated with wine. What is the meaning of this?
Behold here the symbol. The wine of the transubstantiation is a symbol of sexual Alchemy, of sexual transmutation. If you are not careful with your higher work when you come out of the Ark or when Jonah is vomited out by the whale. You see how Jonah was displeased with himself and it says in the Bible that he was angry. The same thing happened with Noah; he got inebriated and displeased. This discontentment means something psychological. Such a longing that is hidden, that is still there within Noah or within the superior resurrected man is always associated with desire, and desire in Sanskrit is Kama Rupa, body of desires; related with Hod, with the Astral body, which is the first son of Noah. Ham is the second; he is the mental solar body. If you are not careful of your behavior Ham, your mind can create through desire. If you do not control your emotional center through Ham, it can create Canaan.
Canaan is precisely the symbol of the serpent of desire that was tempting Eve in the Garden. The tempting serpent of Eden is Canaan or Essau; it has many symbols in relation with your own body, with your own development.
When Noah is drunk, Ham sees it. In other words, the Kama Rupa, the body of desires through the mind, goes “Aha!, so now I am controlling my own father.” Noah in other words is getting castrated spiritually. His own sexual force is not rising but descending, that is called castration from the spirit. And because of that it is descending through Ham, the mind, through the body of desires and creating Canaan. And that is why when the two other sons of Noah are protecting and awaking the father, or the Nous Atom, and Noah realizes what happens, he damns Canaan, the son of Ham, because it is already in him, it is alive. Noah says: “Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.”
Canaan is an egotistic creation because Ham lost his observation, his attentiveness, thus the mind is creating desire again. That is why Canaan is precisely in the Bible related with all those individuals that are slaves of desire. Canaan is the symbol of the serpent, the tempting serpent of Eden, in us. That Canaan is the ego within us. That Canaan was born in those children of God whose mind “Ham” became identified with the daughters of men at that time. This is how the serpent works in you, your sexual energy, desire, or Chastity.
This is why you find that the miracle of transmuting the water of Mem into the wine of the spirit was made by Master Jesus at the wedding of Cana (Cana-an), because that miracle is always happening in us. We are the children of Canaan, children of desire, unfortunately, because our mind does not control the emotional center, center of desire. But Jesus, the Nous Atom which is in the left ventricle of the heart, starts making that transmutation, that transformation within your heart, within the Ark of Noah, within the belly of the whale. That Nous Atom, that Jonah, transmutes the water of Mem into wine of the spirit. That is the miracle of Jesus. The same symbol yet inverted is hidden there in Canaan, the outcome of the inebriation of Nous or Noah with wine.
Thus, because we are fornicators, we are adulterers we need to perform the miracle of Jesus at the wedding of Cana. That is the beginning, as the Master Jesus taught it,
This beginning of miracles (of the entrance into salvation) did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him. – John 2: 11
Understand: the transmutation of the waters into wine is done inside. It is not outside. Jesus did not make miracles just for fun.
Every single step and action that Master Jesus did and is written about in the gospels symbolizes something that we have to perform internally. This is why we have to understand and do it in ourselves, not just believe in it. You can believe in it or not believe in it, it does not matter. If you do not do it in yourself it is worthless. You have to do it.
Sequentially, the Bible states: “A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.” - Genesis 6: 16
Thus, Mem, Shin, and Aleph are the mother letters that count. Thus the measure of the window is one cubit. When you say one cubit, this is the number one; what is number one? Aleph is number one: the wind, the spirit, represented by Kether. Aleph is the symbol of the wind of the chakra of clairvoyance. The Ajna Chakra, that has to rotate clockwise, not counter-clockwise; there are many individuals who rotate that chakra counterclockwise, and that is negative. You have to rotate it clockwise. That is the window of the Ark. Thus through that window can pass the Holy Spirit. The white dove. And listen, in Hebrew dove is Jonah: Ionah. Jonah means "dove", in Hebrew ; and the white dove of the Holy Spirit is a symbol of sexuality, of purity, Chastity. Can you see that now?
It is also stated that the Ark has to have three stories: Yetzirah, Briah, and Atziluth, because the Ark itself is Assiah. So, the three stories are the three worlds that you are entering and developing because the whole Tree of Life has to be developed within you.
In the Kabbalistic Hebrew alphabet, you find Lamed made up of a letter Vav and a Kaph going down into the abyss. Lamed, “Lev Meivin Daath,” this phrase means: a heart that understands Daath - Knowledge. Lamed is the symbol of knowledge, it means that you understand the knowledge with your heart. Lamed also means that the Atom Nous in the heart is receiving enlightenment; “A tower soaring on the top of the head, in the air,” this is the only kabbalistic letter that ascends above the head.
Let us explain this better: the letter Nun (the sperm, the fish) receives through the blood in the heart the force of God, the dove, by means of the letter Kaph, which is another letter that symbolizes the way in which Adam (the brain) is receiving the strength from the heart. So Tiphereth, which is the heart of the Tree of Life, receives the strength of God from Kether and beyond, which is represented by the letter Iod, which when you stretch it, is the letter Vav, a vertical line. That is why the letter Lamed is represented as a tower floating in the air; meaning going high above your head. So that is the height, 30 cubits, meaning that the whole work that you are doing has to be commanded by your God above, your own Kether. Thirty, the height, indicates that it is not a work that you are going to do just by yourself; you have to be always remembering God, remembering Kether, the Father who is in heaven; because every one of us has his own individual particular Kether, his own Father. This is why Master Jesus said:
After this manner therefore pray ye:
1. Our Father which art in heaven,
2. Hallowed be thy name.
3. Thy kingdom come.
4. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
5. Give us this day our daily bread.
6. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
7. 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: 9-13
This entire prayer is in relation with the work that we are explaining here. So from that Vav, from above, the letter Lamed, comes the strength of God into your heart, first passing through your brain and then going into your heart, transforming your mind into a sensitive intuitive abstract mind. That is the height; because only God can give you the stature, the height, that you need to acquire. Thus, that is the height of the Ark.
So you acquire all of that by entering into the Ark, this is how you work with the ten Sephiroth, always from Malkuth, the whale. This is the explanation, and this is how when you read the book of Jonah - which is a very short book, it has two pages - you have to meditate on it; since everything that is written there is symbolic.
When it stated that Jonah entered into the ship, understand that such ship is the physical body, it is the Ark. It is very clear there that God says go to Nineveh, and he says I am not going to Nineveh, and he goes into a ship and goes to Tarshish. Again the ship is the physical body, the whale, the Ark, Malkuth, the Nukva, the ninth sphere of the earth, all the same symbol.
You as a soul receive commandments from your Monad above. He says, “My child, you are my soul. Go into Nineveh and pray, do the work.” And when you enter into Malkuth, the physical body, you forget about God. You move your life your own ship out of your own whim. The ship the boat symbolizes your physical body and your life symbolizes the waters of life, thus, you are there wandering in the sea of life.
But Jonah was gone down into the sides of the ship; and he lay, and was fast asleep. So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not…– Jonah 1: 5, 6,
Saite Period, XXVIth Dynasty, 664 525 BC. A bronze latus fish in beautiful deep green patinated bronze. The sacred fish is recumbent on a curved sled-like base with the front turned up beneath the fish¹s mouth. There is a suspension loop (for amulet use) behind the head-dress of Hathor; crown of uraei, cow¹s horns and sun-disc. The eyes, gill area and the dorsal fin are carefully incised. L: 12cm / 4.75". A very attractive example of this interesting sacred fish.
So they took up Jonah, and cast him forth into the sea: and the sea ceased from her raging. Then the men feared Jah-Chavah exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice unto Jah-Chavah and made vows.
Now Jah-Chavah had prepared a great fish (Nun, Nukva) to swallow up Jonah (the Dove, the sexual force of the Holy Spirit). And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. – Jonah 1: 15-17
So, likewise, we are now, we might say, in a boat (physical body), which should be transformed into the Ark of Noah -- that depends on us. To transform our physical body into a whale, that depends on us. It does not depend on what you believe, it depends on what you do: your actions, sexually speaking, intuitively speaking. You have to work with your three brains, the intellectual brain, the emotional brain, and the motor brain… those are the three brains with which you have to work in order to enter into the Ark. That is how you do it. That is how you begin the work with the letter Lamed.
You see, the whole Ark of Noah or Jonah (the dove) within the whale (within the Nun) is associated with the Son of Man. Thus, as it is written in the Bible, “as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
“For as Jonah (the dove) was three days and three nights in the "Nun" whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth (Malkuth).”
These are symbols of the whole work that we have to do, that you will find explained in other lectures, because if we start explaining the three days and three nights in the whale's belly within the waters of Mem (forty) - as we do it in other lectures - that will take maybe a couple of hours. So now you can ask questions in order to extend this lecture.
Questions and Answers
Q: What was the symbol for the animals that boarded the Ark? 2 of each I guess would be…
A: We say that when they are referring to two and two they are referring of course to the two polarities, man and woman, feminine and masculine, united in Mem. When you enter in the sexual act, you are starting to transmute your impurities. You transform lust into Chastity, pride into humility, greed into philanthropy, and all the defects, all the vices that are impure have to be transformed. Those are the animals that we have within, that we have to transform. And that have to enter into the Ark, because we have to extract from them, alchemically speaking, those positive values. Knowledge. And the animals, which are pure, which enter seven and seven, are the superior aspects from Malkuth above, because I told you that the true human being has seven bodies: physical, vital, astral, mental, causal, Buddhic, and Atmic (or spiritual). Those values have to enter, because the whole Tree of Life has to enter into the Ark, into the physical body, in order to make of that physical body a human being, a resurrected master, a reincarnated master; or a prophet, in other words. Do you want to be a prophet? Do you want to be a saint? Well you need to extract those positive values from your monad, which are seven aspects, which are in relation with the seven churches, which are in Assiah, which are the seven chakras that you have to develop and to place there the seven. Seven and seven, because seven represents the positive aspects of the man, and seven represents the positive aspects of the woman, in the Ark. This is how you enter -- two and two from the impurities below, and seven and seven from the purities above.
Q: I have 2 questions. One of the questions I have is on the language. [Unintelligible..] because I have been studying Hebrew , and the Hebrew that you have is a little different from the one that I have studied. You said in Hebrew there are no vowels. From what I know in Hebrew the vowels are included.
A: Yes, I understand. The listener is saying that I said that there are no vowels in Hebrew , and that he says that according to his studies there are vowels represented by dots and lines and other. When I said that, I was referring to the old Hebrew , because those lines and spots of dots were added afterwards in order for the people to read it, because when you read the originals, you do not find any lines and spots, only the letters. And that is why the translators sometimes did not know what they were reading. Sometimes they can make other words. For instance, a transversal line beneath a letter is the sound “AH”, the three dots “EH”, the dot in front of the letter is “OOH”, one dot above is “OH” and at the bottom is “EE”. You see it is a the opposite of the letter I in latin, when we say “EE” for the letter I, we put the dot above, but in Hebrew it is below and above is “OH”. So that is why the letter Vav for instance, which is the letter V in English, it is used for vowels. If you put the dot on the very belly of that Vav, it is “OOH”, if you put it in the bottom it is “EE”, if you put it on top is “OH”. And the letter Hei for instance, when it is aligned like that at the very bottom, it is an “AH” sound: as NO-AAH. And this is precisely the point. Now of course thanks to those dots and lines, you can read, or to know the sound of the word. I am not saying that my pronunciation of Hebrew is perfect, because it is not, but at least I make the effort.
Q: Did Jesus actually exist? I know that the stories are allegories, but sometimes there are actual… I know that the story is exaggerated to a certain point, but was there an actual Jesus?
A: The answer is yes – Jesus existed, exists, and will exist. Jesus is a great master, is one of the highest Monads, or masters that came to this planet Earth. The true name of Master Jesus is Aberamentho. That is his sacred name, because everyone has a sacred name.
Q: What does that mean?
A: Well, that is the name.
Q: Does it have a meaning?
A: It might have a meaning, of course, because every name has a meaning, but to enquire about the meaning of Master Jesus: a Paramarthasatya. What is a Paramarthasatya… it is an inhabitant of the Absolute, an inhabitant of Ain. He came from Ain to Malkuth to teach us. So he is a great Being. Of course, when he was born 2,000 years ago, he was baptized with the name of Jesus, Yeshua, which means “savior,” because he was going to bring the knowledge that was previously exclusive only for the Jews. He was going to give the knowledge to everybody. That was his mission. Not only to the Jews but to everybody. Because the Jews, or the Hebrews, were receiving different masters, monads, in different epochs, preparing the doctrine for the whole humanity. When Jesus came he said, “Ok this doctrine that the masters in the past brought to you, now is the time to give it to everybody.” Those people, the conservatives, disagreed with him but Jesus kept his message and brought the knowledge to the Gentiles, meaning the Aryans, because Arya means Gentile in Sanskrit. The Gentiles are all who were not involved in Kabbalah, which means everybody.
Jesus represents the Son of Man, Jesus himself, as Noah, and as Jonah, represents the Son of Man. That is why he says, someone higher than Noah and than Moses and than Solomon and than Jonah is here; because he is of course from the Ain. And he was teaching the same thing but in his own way. Jesus represents the internal individual particular Jesus Christ that we have to create and develop. But unfortunately people misunderstood his message and they think that in order to be saved or to be transformed as we explain here, it is enough to believe in him. People say, I believe in Jesus, you lift your arm aloft and say, “I believe in Jesus as my savior” and that is it. That is a joke of very bad taste. And who started doing that? It is because they were interpreting the Bible in the wrong way. And unfortunately there are millions of people who think that way because they believe in Jesus they think they will be saved. No. It is good to study the Bible, but also to practice it, to make it blood and flesh in you. And then the inner Jesus will develop in you. And that is precisely the message of the master, as you find other messages of other masters.
Master Jesus is an immortal master, a resurrected master. He is alive. But of course, he is disappointed because this humanity did not understand his message, just as they did not understand the message of the Ark of Noah, the great Manu Vaisvasvata. Still they are interpreting the message of Genesis, of Noah, in the literal way. There are people who waste millions of dollars in order to find the Ark in the Mount Ararat. That Ark never existed, physically speaking. That Ark is a symbol of Alchemy, and Ararat is a symbol of the top of the head. So, make of the top of your head and “Ara,” an altar in Latin. You have another question…
Q: Since Jesus was a supreme being, they said that he had children. Were his children supreme like him? If he is a supreme being, he had a supreme science. Then shouldn’t his children be like him? And then did they descend like he did?
A: This is going to the Da Vinci Code, right? They said that the children that the royal blood of Jesus are now, etc… Listen, the royal blood of Jesus is the royal blood of Nous, of Noah. The royal blood of Noah, when you transmute your sexual energy… That is the royal blood. You enrich your blood with solar forces and the child that is going to be born in you is the Son of Man, that child will be equal to Jesus inside, according to your level. That is the true genealogy of Jesus, internally speaking. In the physical world who knows, he was a man also and he could have children. But that is irrelevant. In this physical world everybody dies and goes to the grave. So what is the big deal about that?
Q: Noah had children.
A: Yes, the children of Noah are a symbol. And you find that Jesus had brothers. This is a symbol. His own mother is a symbol, but she existed. She took the symbol of that in order to deliver the knowledge. The problem is that people think that Mary the mother of Jesus is the only Mary in the world. No, there are many Marys in heaven, virgins. In the Incas, in South America, they have 10,000 virgins, as a symbol, in the pantheon. So everything is symbolic. And that is why we have to know how to read the Bible. If we read it literally, we fall into mistakes. Like Darwin. Darwin never understood Genesis so therefore he created his own “Bible,” his own beliefs. And he said that the man comes from the ape and there are many that follow that dogma, and they call themselves scientists. But they are also fanatics of the dogma of evolution, because this is a dogma.
