This is a transcription of the audio lecture Kabbalah of Genesis 10 Cain and Abel, Part 3 The Fire originally given live on Gnostic Radio, which you can download for free.
In Kabbalah, there are three Hebrew letters called “mother letters.”
- א Aleph symbolizes the element air in the sephirah Kether.
- ש Shin symbolizes the element fire in the sephirah Tiphereth.
- מ Mem symbolizes the element water in the sephirah Yesod.
The word אדם Adam has the letter א Aleph at the beginning and the letter מ Mem at the end. So if we place the letter Aleph in Kether and the letter Mem in Yesod, then the letter ד Daleth, in the middle of the name, relates to the mystery of Daath, a word that begins with Daleth.
- א Aleph hides the first mystery, Kether.
- ד Daleth hides the mystery of Daath.
- מ Mem hides the mystery of Yesod.
This is why when the ancient Kabbalists write about Adam, they always end the name in Yesod; they don’t go further. When they talk about Malkuth, they then refer to that feminine aspect that emerges from that Adam in Yesod.Now, regarding the three mother letters Aleph, Shin, and Mem, in the name Adam we miss the letter ש Shin, whose shape is like a trident. The letter Shin is in the center of the Tree of Life, in the very heart, which is the sephirah Tiphereth, which means “beauty” and that relates with the human soul. So why is it that the letter Shin is missing in the name Adam? It is because in the Bible the fire, the letter Shin, encloses the mystery of creation, the mystery of evolution, development, in different steps.
The word for fire in Hebrew has two letters: א Aleph, which symbolizes air, and ש Shin, which symbolizes fire. These two letters are also in the words man and woman in Hebrew, as follows:
If we take the letter י Iod of the sacred name יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei and put it in the middle of the fire (Aleph Shin) we then spell Aleph, Iod and Shin (איש Ish) which is the Hebrew word for man. The letter Iod symbolizes the phallus in alchemy. And the word איש Ish, man, also sounds like אש Esh, fire.
If we want to write female or woman, we then take the letter Hei of the sacred name יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei and put it at the end of the fire (Aleph Shin), spelling Aleph Shin Hei: אשה Isha, which is the Hebrew word for woman.
So, in other words, the words man (איש) and woman (השא) in the Bible relate to (אש Aleph Shin) the consuming fire of the heart.
For יהוה thy Elohim is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. – Deuteronomy 4: 24
The letter Iod symbolizes the phallus, and it is very clear how the fire manifests through the Iod.
The letter Hei symbolizes the uterus. The word fire, Esh, relates to the letter Hei of Isha, the uterus of the sacred name יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei. This is why we stated that the name, the sacred name of God, the Tetragrammaton is:
Iod (phallus), Hei (uterus), Vav (man), Hei (woman)
The letter Shin hides the mystery of Iod-Chavah; this is why you find that the mysterious letter Shin ש has the shape of the very top of the trident. The Gods that have control over the waters always use the trident. For instance, in Greek mythology you find that Neptune Poseidon (who rules the pineal gland, within which we find the atom of the Holy Spirit) controls the sexual waters with the power of the trident in his hand. If we go into the Hindu pantheon, we find the God Shiva, who represents the Holy Spirit, also holds the trident. So the Gods, the Elohim, control the waters of Yesod through the fire of the heart. This is very significant, because the whole mystery of the division of sexes and the alchemical work that we have to perform within ourselves in Daath is hidden within the letter Shin.
Let us go now further into the book of Genesis; in it we find that the word Mayim (מים) means water. If you take the first Mem from Mayim, we only leave (ים) Iod, Mem, which in Hebrew means ocean or sea. So ים the sea, relates to the gathering together of the waters of Yesod called sea, ים.
And Elohim said, Let the waters (מים) under the heaven (שמים) be gathered together unto one place (Yesod)... and the gathering together of the waters called he sea (ים yam). - Genesis 1: 9-10
The Hebrew word for heaven that we find in Genesis is שמים Schamayim. It is stated:
In the beginning God created the heavens (שמים) and the earth. - Genesis 1: 1
The word שמים heavens begins with the letter Shin, which means that the waters of heaven have their origin in the fire.
Heaven is read “Schamayim” or Shin Mem Iod Mem. Yet “the heavens” is Hei Shin Mayim, which means (שה Ha-Shin) the fire and (מים Mayim) waters together; so Ha-Shin and Mayim are “the heavens” (מיםשה); or what in Sanskrit we call Akasha. So in this way we understand that in the universe everything comes from water and fire. The two mysterious letters םש that symbolize water and fire are within (מיםשה) Schamayim, heaven.
Now, let us go down into our physicality, because this is precisely what we want to emphasize in this lecture. Remember that the physical body is the Microcosmos of the Macrocosmos. Within the Microcosmic physicality of the human being, the physical body, we find two waters that relate to creation. As we find in the Tree of Life, two waters relate to creation: Schamayim and Mayim. Schamayim relates to the mystery of Daath, which is the Sephirah that is underneath the first triangle of the Tree of Life. Mayim, water without the fire, without the letter Shin, is in the Sephirah Yesod. Schamayim and Mayim are the two waters. Both waters relate to the second day of Genesis.
And Elohim said, Let there be a firmament (Tiphereth) in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
Let the cognizance separate the superior waters from the inferior waters, the superior from the inferior, or as Hermes Trismegistus stated in his Emerald Tablet:
The superior agrees with the inferior, and the inferior agrees with the superior, to effect that one truly wonderful work (the miracle of the unity)..... Separate that spirituous earth from the dense or crude by means of a gentle heat, with much attention. – Emerald Tablet
That one truly wonderful work is the miracle of creation. The physical body is the “Earth” that was created in order for us, to perform that miracle, that creation. This is why, in alchemy, the physical body is called the mixture, because in it is where we find all of the Sephiroth which we talk about; the entire Tree of Life is inside us.
Where do we find Schamayim, that fiery water, in us? We find it in the central nervous system. The central nervous system is formed by the brain and the medulla. The are floating within Schamayim, which is the cerebral spinal fluid. That fluid contains that fire that represents the positive aspect of the creative energy or the sexual energy. The medulla, the brain, absorbs the elements, the necessary principles in order to develop, when floating in that liquid.
There also exists the passive aspect of the creative energy or sexual energy, which is the fluid that we call Mayim and which relates to the sephirah Yesod. Yesod is related to the sexual genitalia. In the male organism, that fluid is called semen. Mayim also relates to the fluid of the uterus in the female organism which is also created by other glands. We, Gnostics also call this fluid, in the female organism, semen. Of course there is a difference between the semen of the female organism and the semen of the masculine organism; as you know the ovaries create the ovum that flows into the uterus in order to be fecundated. Indeed, Yesod, as the feminine aspect of the creative energy, is female; Yesod is called the woman (Isha) in this alchemical sense. Whereas the cerebral spinal fluid is the masculine aspect of the creative energy, it is male; this is why when we talk about the brain and the spinal column or the spinal medulla, we call it Adam.
The cerebral spinal fluid within us is symbolized by Adam, while the semen, the fluid of Yesod, is represented by Eve, Chavah. Adam is the brain and the medulla, and Chavah is the creative energy, the genitalia. This is easy to see when we go into the female organism, the woman, physically speaking. When the woman gets pregnant, immediately the fetus that develops within her womb is floating in water. That water contains all the ingredients, all the mixture in order to create life in this physical world, and it is obvious that it is feminine. Likewise, the water that we as males have in potentiality - in the archetypical manner – which is called semen in the prostate, in the male organism, is “feminine” in the same sense. So, as we know, both genital waters of Yesod are necessary in order to create life on this planet.
So, let us visualize the fire, which is in the cerebral spinal fluid, is the fire, the Shin of מיםש Schamayim, heaven, that needs the assistance of מים Mayim, the counterpart. Remember that it is stated:
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called (אשה) Woman, because she was taken out of (איש) Man. - Genesis 2: 23
This is why in alchemy Adam is called Iod, since in man, Ish (איש), we find fire (אש) together with the Iod. Yet, the woman is called Isha (אשה); this is easy to understand and comprehend as the Bible explains it: when Eve is taken out of Adam, he says: “she shall be called אשה woman.” It doesn’t say she will be called Eve. The Bible says in Hebrew: “because she was taken out of (איש) Man.” So in other words the divisions of sexes that we find in Genesis relates to the letter Shin, relates to the fire, the creative fire of creation, it relates to the letter Shin ש that represents the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; Kether, Chokmah, Binah; Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and many other names, related to the same trinity, which is that Holy Trinity which creates, the Holy Triamatzikamno that needs to perform that creation in us, and which does it precisely through our sexuality.
The sexual creative fire is not only in the sexual organs, but also in that fluid that circulates in the central nervous system. In alchemy we have to extract the creative fire from Yesod. The division of sexes as we explained in other lectures was made because we need to develop the brain and we need to develop the throat. In other words the cerebral spinal fluid needs the assistance of the feminine fluids of Yesod, which is called semen, in order to perform the miracle, the creation of the human being within us.
Now, there is something important that we must know, in Hebrew there are many ways to say man, human. When we go directly to the word hu-man being; we must know how to say human in Hebrew: אנוש – Enosh, this is how you say human. The word אנוש Enosh has the letter Shin at the end, indicating that Enosh is the outcome of the fire.
And Adam (the central nervous system) knew (אשה) his wife again; and she (the fluids of Yesod) bare a son, and called his name (תש) Seth (the rear pelvic area of the human body):... And to (שת) Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name (אנוש) Enosh. – Genesis 4: 25, 26
Thus, Ish is man, Enosh is human and Adam is also translated as human. But Adam is more related to that human (the central nervous system) which is hidden within any man and any woman. So, Adam is within a woman and Adam is also within a man, because Adam relates to the central nervous system; and as we men have a central nervous system, women also have a central nervous system. So Adam is within both sexes, yet the mystery of the division of sexes relates to Yesod, Eve, Chavah; and this is precisely what is written in the first verse of the fourth chapter of the book of Genesis:
And Adam (the central nervous system) knew (חוה – Chavah) Eve his (אשה) wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a (איש) man from יהוה.
In order for Adam (the brain) to know Eve (the genitalia) his wife, we have to nourish our brain, our central nervous system with the fluids of Yesod through the Sephirah Daath, which encloses the mystery of sexual alchemy; thus, in order for us to know or to acquire knowledge (Daath), that is, in order to develop the brain and all that is related with the psyche, we have to know Eve. In order words, through Daath, through the mystery of sexual alchemy, through Gnosis, we have to take advantage of Eve, Yesod, which is the sexual organ, which is the brain’s wife.
Observe that it is written: “And Adam knew Eve, his wife.” Why write his wife? We know that Adam was the husband of Eve and Eve the wife of Adam. Understand that “His wife” implies his “Isha” (sexual fluids). “And Adam knew Eve his Isha” means that, the central nervous system that floats on the cerebral spinal fluid knew (in the sexual act) the feminine fluids, the sexes of Yesod, his wife.
The masculine cerebral spinal fluid and the feminine genitalia’s fluids are the two polarities of the sexual energies that we have to understand, these exist in each man and woman, within Adam and Eve. There after it is written:
And she (the feminine fluids, the sexes of Yesod) conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a (איש - Ish) man from יהוה (Iod Hei Vav Hei) which is translated as Jehovah or The Lord.
Thus, “I have begotten an Ish from Iod Hei Vav Hei,” implies all the alchemical fires of the masculine cerebral spinal fluid and the feminine genitalia’s fluids within a man or woman’s human body. Kain; is translated in the bible as Cain, yet the translation should be Kain, because Kain is written with the letter Kuf, which we already have explained in “Alphabet of Kabbalah.” The letter Kuf’s hieroglyphic pertains to the brain and the medulla, relates to the brain and the medulla. You can read the explanation of this in the letter Kuf. So when we say Kuf or Kain, immediately we go to the hieroglyphic of the letter Kuf in order to understand that the name Cain relates to the central nervous system. In other words, Eve begot Kain, the reasoning, the mind in the brain through the central nervous system. This is why it is written that Cain was a tiller of the ground. That ground is the physical body; which is called אדמה Adamah in Hebrew; Adamah is Malkuth. Observe the word אדמה “Adamah,” in it you see clearly that the word אדם Adam changes into אדמה Adamah, simple, very simple. Adam is from Kether to Yesod, the whole nine Sephiroth of the Tree of Life, nine is the number of Adam. Sequentially, if you add at the end of word אדם Adam the letter ה Hei, which symbolizes Malkuth, then you say אדמה Adamah, the female aspect of Kether.
So then the cerebral spinal fluid that relates to the central nervous system is Adam that gets Cain from Eve (the feminine genitalia’s fluids), through a process of alchemy. When we say “a process of alchemy” we are addressing the sexual act; yes, when we talk about alchemy we are talking about sexual alchemy. The sexual act itself is alchemy, a mixture of forces in order to create. Remember that the Bible states that:
Cain was a tiller of the ground. - Genesis 4: 2
Keep that in mind and let us go back into the third chapter of the book of Genesis, where it is stated that when Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden fruit, Adam was kicked out of Eden in order to till the ground, from which he was taken.
Therefore אלהים יהוה (Jehovah Elohim) sent him (אדם Adam) forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground (אדמה) from whence he was taken. - Genesis 3: 23
Can you see the similarities of both chapters? Adam was taken out of Eden to till the ground and Cain was a tiller of the ground. This is easy to understand when you comprehend that the central nervous system is Adam and that Cain, the mind, which always operates in the brain, is the outcome of it when “Adam knew Eve his wife.” Evidently, through alchemy (Daath) the brain (Adam) knows Eve (the genitalia).
When we visualize the central nervous system, the brain and the medulla, what is what we see in relation with alchemy? What comes immediately into our mind is the hammer. That hammer that is placed in the hands of Thor, this mythological Nordic God represents the Holy Spirit. When Thor strikes his hammer against the rock (Yesod), according to this Nordic myth Thor creates lightings and thunders. Now, if we go into the Greek mythology we also find the Cyclops; they are called Cyclops, because they only have one eye, related with the pineal gland. It is stated in Greek mythology that the Cyclops were children of Neptune, children of Poseidon; because the Cyclopean eye is related with the pineal gland. Poseidon-Neptune controls the pineal gland. The Cyclops are the ones who take the cerebral spinal system, the central nervous system, the symbol of the hammer, in order to strike it against the anvil, which is the feminine sexual organ. In any alchemical laboratory you find the hammer and the anvil, both are made of iron; in order to make the lightning for Zeus, Jupiter, the Cyclops have to hammer and they do it on the anvil.
When you study Hindu mythology, you find that mysterious symbol of the lingam yoni, which is an anvil, a yoni united with a lingam, which shows the protruding head of a Linga, a hammer.
If you take the head of the Linga and unite it with the yoni, you then just leave the rest of the Linga out of the yoni, which is shown in the shape of all Hindu anvils of alchemy.
The mystery of the making of the fire is done by striking the head of the hammer, the Linga, against the anvil, the Yoni. This is how the sparks of the spirit are released in the spinal column (the central nervous system); that is the mystery of the forge of Vulcan, which is the same forge of the Cyclops and the mystery of the making of the fire. This is why in the bible in the fourth chapter it is explained that Cain with time, through his generations engenders, Tubal Cain, let us see.
And Cain went out from the presence of יהוה, and dwelt in the land of Nod (Limbo), on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch... And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech. And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah... And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-Cain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron. - Genesis 4: 16,17, 18, 19 22
Thus, we find again this name Cain, but Tubal Cain, who was a smith (an artificer in brass and iron) who works with hammer and anvil in alchemy. This is why Cain is always associated with a smith, given that the bible explains that Tubal Cain was a forger of iron and copper or brass, which are the metal elements that are needed in sexual alchemy, which are within you, because iron and brass are symbols.
Thereafter the birth of Cain, the bible says:
And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground (which means that Cain was dealing with the earth). - Genesis 4: 2
“And she again bare his brother Abel.” That is the literal translation, which is completely wrong. Because if we read with the eyes of alchemy, with the eyes of Kabbalah, we can see very clearly here that it says: and she begat אחיו siblings. חא in Hebrew means brother, but אחיו means siblings, since it is written in plural ending with Iod and Nun. “And she again bare siblings and Abel;” this is how the translation should be. This means that she begat two females and Abel. Some Kabbalists state that she begat one woman and Abel, because that is what the word siblings means in Hebrew. Thus, translated literally, it says: “And she begat his brother, or his sibling Abel.” But Kabbalistically the Hebrew word that is before and after siblings or brother is תא “Eth” Aleph Tav; “Eth” תא in Hebrew means “she.” Thus תא “Eth” means female gender; so, (הבל תא אחיו תא) means two females and Abel. Thus, if you don’t know alchemy, if you don’t know Kabbalah, you do not see this.
Who are these two siblings? Of course, “she,” is the sexual organ; when we talk about “she,” Eve, we are addressing the sexual organ. Thus, when we say that “she” begat siblings, this relates to the explanation of the division of sexes; but why two females? It is because the sexual organs as we have stated are feminine. In other words Eve split into two; she bared siblings. The first sibling is the sexual masculine organ, which is feminine, female; and the other sibling if the feminine sexual organ which is also female, because we always stated that the sexual organ is female, alchemically, Kabbalistically speaking, because the brain is always masculine. Cain (the smith) always beats with the hammer (willpower) on the female aspect which is the sexual organ.
When we are working with sexual transmutation as bachelors or bachelorettes, we are controlling with willpower our own particular mind - which in this case is Cain – and our sexual energy, which is the female in man and in the woman also.
Regarding sexual alchemy - when we transmute as married - the man becomes the hammer and the woman becomes the anvil. Yet, individually, we have our own hammer and anvil when we do our sexual transmutation as bachelor or bachelorettes. Because in the individual way, when we practice transmutation, we have to strike the anvil with the hammer and that hammer is willpower, Ratson in Hebrew; yes, we have to strike the anvil in order for the anvil to release the flames in the spinal column.
Now, we explained here why Eve begot אחיו siblings and Abel, which in Hebrew is written הבל Habel, which means worthless. Habel or Abel means worthless in the sense that is not proud or vain. When I said this I remember in this very moment Samael Aun Weor, when he was already self-realized, without ego. He always said: “I’m worthless”. How was he worthless, when he self-realized all of that within? Because what he said, in other words was: “I am futile, empty,” which means Habel in Hebrew. Habel or Abel means worthless in a positive aspect, that is, a way in which we don’t feel that we are somebody else. Because when we feel that we are somebody else then God is not penetrating within us. But when we are worthless, the Being penetrates and then we are somebody; that is the meaning of Habel or Abel.
Habel or Abel is translated as vanity, but really the word also means worthless or futile, you have to also understand that Habel or Abel also relates to the breath, to the vapor, the steam that sparks, that sprouts from the earth when it is stricken by the hammer against the anvil in each one of us, that is Abel.. This is why it is written:
For Jehovah Elohim had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not Adam (hammer) to till (to strike) Adamah (the ground, the anvil). AND there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of Adamah (the ground). – Genesis 2: 5, 6
This is why it is also written:
And יהוה had respect unto Habel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. – Genesis 4: 4, 5
Thus, Jehovah Elohim or Iod-Havah Elohim was pleased with Abel or Habel and displeased with Cain the mind; why? Here comes the other word that implies the cerebral spinal nervous system which is ןברק Korban in Hebrew. As Cain begins with Kuf, Korban begins with Kuf also. קרבן Korban means sacrifice, offering, oblation, immolation, which is an alchemical work that we must perform related with the central nervous system.
As we explained, Cain was identified with the earth. Cain was identified with the senses, because the brain relates with the senses as we have explained in other lectures. In the head we find the senses; the hearing, sight, smell, taste, touch. Cain feeds himself from the physical senses; Cain receives, collects, which is what we call Kabbalah in Hebrew. This is precisely what we always point out, Cain is an intellectual Kabbalist, Cain is us, mentally speaking is a collector, somebody who collects, who receives intellectually. See all that we have within; we have knowledge of course, but that type of knowledge is related with the senses since Cain the mind is identified with the senses. This is why when we as Cain sacrifice to our inner being, when we offer to our God the outcome of our senses our God is displeased. Because Cain is given to God the leftovers of what he gathers. His Korban, which is Hebrew for offering, is not received with good eyes. Since indeed his offering is from the left side, from desire. Cain first feeds his own selfishness and what is left behind is for God which is what all the people, in this day and age, think in their mind: “First I’m going to have this career, Cain; first I’m going to have this job, Cain; first I have to make a lot of money, Cain; and to have a house, Cain; thus after I gather all the wealth of the earth, then I will give my offering, my Korban to God.” Thus, in Genesis Cain’s Korban is explained, offered on different levels. This is why it is written:
And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto יהוה. – Genesis 4: 3
With the passing of the days of time, Cain comes and gave an offering to Jehovah and he was displeased. Why? It is because Cain is just giving the leftover. Cain is very fat, he is feeding desire. This is very clear; the Bible explains it:
But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell [meaning, his face fell down to Klipoth]. And יהוה said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? [If you do good, you will be accepted, but obviously Cain is doing only selfish good and what is left behind is for his inner Being] and If thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door [of the senses, through which the mind pursue the satisfaction of desire]. And unto thee (Cain, mind) shall (sin) be its desire, and thou (Cain) shalt rule over him (over sin, desire). - Genesis 4: 5-7
So it is obviously, it is very clear that sin lies at the door of desire, and that it is Cain and not God the one who rules over desire.
Meanwhile Intellectual Kabbalists state that you have to feed desire, because they say that “Ratson Le Kabel” means desire to receive a lot. Yet, intuitive Kabbalists state that “Ratson Lekabel” means the WILL to receive, which is different. Thus, desire to receive a lot is what Cain was doing; since, Cain is desire. Therefore, the contrary of Cain (the mind the terrestrial mind) is Abel.
Abel relates to the heart, Abel is that essence; Abel is that breath, Abel is that vapor that emerges from the union of the fire and the water. Abel is also related with the pineal gland, because the pineal gland is the seat of the soul. And the pineal gland is also related with the sexual force, because Abel is the outcome of Eve, the genitalia.
And she (Eve, the sexual organ) again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep... 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: – Genesis 4: 2, 4
But in which way had יהוה respect unto Abel and to his offering? This is what we have to understand and comprehend now; likewise, in which way is Abel offering the firstlings, in which way does God enjoys his offering? God was very pleased with the offering of Abel, because Abel is worthless. Abel is that intuitive part that is not reasoning, Abel is not thinking: “I’m going to do something for me and thereafter something for God. Abel is that essence, that consciousness which is empty of ego. Abel is empty of self-willed, of myself, of what I am of what I want to be. Abel is just there, here and now, emptiness, futile for desire, this is how he should be called.
Yet, after the division of sexes, Abel is weak, as is now in this present day and age, presently it is also happening. When the baby is born, when our body is a child, then that vapor which is related with our sexual organs, vapor which we call hormones goes up from the sexual organs (Eve) to the brain (Adam). In the lecture “the metallic planets of alchemy” the master Samael Aun Weor explains how from the zero to the seven years of age, the sexual organs of the child are releasing hormones “the firstlings of his flock” as the Bible states. And also the milk - the bible states: “and of the fat thereof” - but חלב “Halab” really means “milk.” The rivers of Eden are flowing with milk and honey.
Milk and honey are the elements, the feminine elements of the sexual organs that manifest in the woman. When a woman gets pregnant, her honey (solar elements) feeds the fetus in her uterus and thereafter such a child is fed with the milk of her breasts (moon elements), thus, milk and honey are related with the female sexual organs.
So, Abel brings the best of the female energy, which is the milk and “the firstlings of his flock”, the sheep the symbol of the essence, the hormonal animal essence that we have in the sexual organs. Such a hormonal fluid goes up to the brain and develops all that which needs to be developed. As you see, the hormonal force of the sexual organ, which is Habel, that vapor that breath of life emerges from the sexual organs in different steps. As the sexual organs develop, the organism takes the hormones and develops the brain, develops the senses, develops all the things that the physical body needs in order to mature.
Thus, Jehovah Elohim in Hebrew mythology, which is the Holy Spirit in Christian mythology, which is Neptune in Greek mythology, which is Shiva in Hindu mythology, which is in the pineal gland, is happy with Habel. Because thanks to Habel the milk and honey is rising from the sexual organs and going up into the whole organism; so, Habel is going up and given the best to יהוה.
At that age, when we are children - from birth to age seven - all the inner and physical senses are developed. Physically we are capable to perceive the three dimensions, but we also perceive the fourth, the fifth, the sixth and even the seventh with the inner senses. All of us when we were children were capable to be like that. This is why it is written: “And she (Eve) again bare (הבל תא אחיו תא) two females and Abel. Unfortunately, such offspring was only the outcome of a wrong division, the outcome of fornication, because they were already outside, they were already out of Eden. Remember that Adam was kicked out of Eden. Notwithstanding, the process of the fire is still in activity. And this is why Abel, the essence that all of us have, works, without any expectations, without waiting for any reward.
As Samael Aun Weor said: “I am worthless.” Because as a Habel, he was a futile entity, which is worthless for desire, he was just being a vehicle, a vessel for his Being, in order for all the firstlings of his flock and of the milk thereof (the sexual force) to go up and develop what he developed. Yet, in all of us the story is different, because we developed the personality and through it Cain becomes stronger.
Thus, all of a sudden, when we become teenagers and wretchedly in this day and age before reaching the teen age, Cain is already abusing the sexual energy.
How did Cain kill Abel? This is too easy to see; Cain kills Abel through the acquisition of vices, through the satisfaction of the senses; thus, at the teen age all that hormonal force that was going into the brain, into the pineal gland, into the spirit; all of a sudden stops. Why, because:
If thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door [of the senses, through which the mind pursue the satisfaction of desire]. And unto thee (Cain, mind) shall (sin) be its desire, and thou (Cain) shalt rule over him (over sin, desire).
And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. - Genesis 4: 7, 8
Cain were in the field with Abel. Field in Hebrew is שדה Shaddah, which implies female. In other words, Cain was jealous of the twin sister of Abel. Who was the twin sister of Abel? Well that sister is the sexual organ. We said that there were two siblings, because we are separating two female forces, female genitalia and male genitalia. The first female sister of Abel is the phallus, the masculine sexual organ and the second is the vagina, the feminine sexual organ. These are the two sisters, the two divisions of the sexual forces of Yesod, which are the siblings of Abel. Did you understand this?
Listen, Abel is doing Korban with his siblings; this means that through chastity Abel (the soul) is bringing from his sisters (the gonads) all the hormonal forces that we need for the brain, for the Being. But all of a sudden as we explained, this alchemical process stops.
And יהוה said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; when thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. - Genesis 4: 9-12
Thus, when our Inner Being realizes that Abel’s metabolic process has stopped, He says: “why am I not receiving more milk and honey from Abel?” he then goes down into the physicality of us and discovers that Abel is no longer alive, since Cain took control over Yesod and killed that innocence that worthlessness, that emptiness that was innocence in the beginning. Cain killed Abel through masturbation and through any vice of fornication.
This is why it is written that this tiller of the ground Cain who is within the sinful Adam (the head, the brain) had two wives. The Bible only mentions that:
And Cain went out from the presence of יהוה, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch... – Genesis 4: 17
Cain’s wife was נחמד Nahemad. We always say Nahemah, but it is Nahemad, the beauty, the charming of the flesh, the physicality. This Nahemad relates with the sense of touch, to the flesh.
And Jehovah Elohim formed Adam of the dust of (Adamah) the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul. And Jehovah Elohim planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put Adam whom he had formed. And out of (Adamah) the ground (Adam’s physicality) made Jehovah Elohim to grow every tree (body) that is (נחמד - Nahemad) pleasant to the sight, and good for food. – Genesis 2: 7-9
And Adam said, this (tree) is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman.” – Genesis 2: 23
When Adam knew Eve, he said, “this is essence of my essence”, that is, “Adam said this is now bones of my bones and flesh of my flesh;” because the division of the sexes rests on bone and flesh, which relates to the sense of touch, since in the sexual act, the sexual organ, Yesod, is the most sensitive organ of the sense of touch. It is through the sense of touch that the sexual organ gives the honey, the hormones to Abel.
But when both, Cain and Abel, were in the field, meaning, in שדה Shaddah, Yesod, with their feminine siblings (Kabbalists’ traditions state that because Cain was jealous of Abel’s sister - the sexual organ - Cain took the jawbone of a donkey and killed Abel.) Although, the Bible doesn’t state that Abel was killed with the jawbone of a donkey or the skull of a donkey; because this is a Kabbalistic statement. The skull of a donkey symbolizes the power of the animal mind, the way of fornication. Thus, Cain struck - as you see here instead of striking with the hammer of alchemy (symbol of willpower) Cain struck with the skull bone of a donkey (symbol of the animal mind) - against the anvil, Yesod, from where Abel is nourished, and through the animal orgasm he killed Abel. This is how all of us did it and this is how all of us are continuously doing it. Since Cain and Abel are not from the past. Adam and Eve are not from the past either, they are of the present. Adam is your brain, Eve is your sexual organ and the division of that psychosomatic androgyne is represented in Cain and Abel who are inside of us too.
In every single life we return and strike Abel, our own essence, with our animal mind (the jawbone of a donkey) and we kill it. This is why we said: The king of nature that the Bible talks about doesn’t exist but only the killer of nature, which is Cain. Cain was the first killer and he is still within us, killing our own nature. Of course our sin is unforgivable. This is why it is written that when God saw that Cain killed Abel, he said:
What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; when thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. – Genesis 4: 10-12
But those people, like us, who recognize our sin, who are realizing that as Cain we are doing wrong with our mind and with our sex, say unto יהוה (the Holy Spirit):
My punishment (kamaduro) is greater than I can bear. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face (surface) of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid (in Limbo); and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that (because of my karma) every one that findeth me (in every return) shall slay me. - Genesis 4: 13, 14
But, when we repent, that is, when we stop fornicating, a half of that punishment is taken.
And יהוה said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And יהוה set a mark (the letter Tav, the alchemical cross) upon (the repeanted) Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. And Cain went out from the presence of יהוה, and dwelt in the land of Nod (Limbo), on the east of Eden (Yesod). - Genesis 4: 15, 16
Only through chastity is how we will not be outcasts, but only vagabonds. Yet, if through alchemy we kill Cain (our sinful egotistical mind), then we will be completely forgiven. This is a process, a sexual alchemical process that we need to undergo.
The creative force of the fire went down to Limbo because of Cain’s fornication. Cain is a killer that tills the ground (performs the sexual act) and through it feeds desire. Cain does this sin through the other Shin, the passional fire, which in Hebrew is שטן Shatan and that is translated as Satan, as you see the letter Shin is in the spelling of the word Shatan. Why does Satan, begins with the letter Shin? It is because שטן is the inverted godly fire of Teth (the serpent) hidden with the Nun (the fish, the sperm and ovum). This is why Samael Aun Weor explains in his book Hell, Devil and Karma that the false smiths, those who work in a false way on alchemy, develop the Kundabuffer organ, the tail of Shatan, which is the fire of Eve going downwards. The fire of Eve is the fire of the sexual organs. This is why when the sexual organ gives birth - since it is already attached to the Kundabuffer, the inverted fire or tail of Satan - such a fornicator sexual organ “Eve” gives birth to impure children, Children that are already attached to sin, to desire, who are all of us. So Shatan begins with Shin, the inverted fire from Klipoth. Thus, when we know this mystery we begin the path of chastity as Cain. Because you have to admit that Cain is alive in us, you know this.
The Bible states:
And Cain went out from the presence of יהוה, and dwelt in the land of Nod (Limbo), on the east of Eden. - Genesis 4: 16
Nod, we would say, sounds like nodding, no, negative, right? Notwithstanding Cain lives there, he is alive in Nod. Yet, Abel is dead in all of us, so we have to resuscitate Abel if we want to receive forgiveness, for that we must annihilate all of that which we have created related with Cain, in order for Cainan to emerge from within us. As you see Cainan is a word that is also written in the Bible. This Cainan was the son of Enosh.
So behold the three aspects of this mysterious name: Cain, Tubal-Cain and Cainan, the three of them are the same entity, the same archetypical mind. Cain is the one that does the stupidity of fornicating, masturbating, etc. Tubal Cain is the one that start working with the iron, trying to expiate something for his forgiveness. And Cainan is the outcome of alchemy, when the work is done. The word Cainan is written in the same way as Cain. The only difference is that the word Cainan has two Nuns at the end. Cain one Nun and Cainan, two Nuns. This means that Cainan is the outcome of two seeds, because the letter Nun symbolizes the sperm or the ovum. So the Kuf of the name Cainan is telling us that it is the symbol of the spinal column already nourished by two seeds, the ovum and the sperm, within which is the fire. Can you see how it is hidden there, inside of us? The myth of Cain and Abel has many meanings, because Kabbalistically speaking every single myth has seven interpretations, seven. Yet, according to Kabbalah each seven has ten Sephiroth. So it has seventy interpretations and its derivations or derivatives as we say.
So what we are explaining here is Cain and Abel in relation with the letter Shin, which you have to intuit; because about their different aspects we have already given many lectures. So, regarding Cain’s sacrifice, Jesus of Nazareth, the great Kabir said at his time, two thousand years ago, to the Kabbalists:
Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart [Habel is the heart] is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the (second) death. - Mark 7: 6-10
Who are these father and mother; do not all Abrahamic religions say that we are children of Adam and Eve? Yes Adam and Eve are our Father and Mother, but not from the past. Alchemically speaking it is here and now. Our Father Adam is your central nervous system, which is floating in the cerebral spinal fluid, the sexual force of the father and your mother is the sexual organ, Eve, the feminine womb that nurtures us in its feminine sexual liquid before we get born into this physical world. Understand, in our physicality that feminine liquid is in the prostate and the uterus. So that is our Father and our Mother; physically speaking; we are not going to talk about father and mother up in Daath, a higher Sephirah but only down here in Malkuth, the physical world. Since, if you don’t honour your father and mother within your physicality, how are you going to honor your Father and Mother, who relate to the higher Sephirah Daath? To honor our Father and Mother is Korban. Behold Korban begins with the letter Kuf, the letter related with the brain and spine or central nervous system, through which Korban, the offering, is done, through Kuf was Cain giving his offering and through Kuf was also Habel giving his offering.
When you were a child, your body’s metabolism was performing a transmutation or a sublimation of the hormonal forces of your sexual organ to the brain and to the whole endocrine system; this is alchemy or something alike, an offering.
Now, when we willingly start transmuting the sexual force and release within us the creative steam, the breath which is Habel in Hebrew, God then is pleased with our offering. But Cain doesn’t do it; Cain likes to fornicate.
This is why Moses said:
Honor [in your physicality] thy father and thy mother, as יהוה thy Elohim hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in [Adamah] the land [your physicality] which [through the sexual fire] יהוה thy Elohim giveth thee. - Deuteronomy 5: 16
So, the fulfillment of that commandment begins in our physical body. This means that we have to study the cerebral spinal fluid and the sexual fluid in the prostate and the uterus, in order to know how to honor our Father and Mother. Honor is always related with a woman's chastity or reputation for chastity.
But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Korban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. – Mark 7: 11-13
Thus, the reason why Jesus was stating that in Mark 7: 6-13, it is because when we say honor your Father and your Mother, we used to think, yes I honor my Father, who is such and such fellow, and we give the name of our physical father’s personality and likewise we do honor our physical mother. Yet, the commandment does not relate to them, No! Notwithstanding, we have to respect our physical parents; but listen, the commandment is related with those forces that we have to honor within our physical organism. If we do not honor such fires, then even if we follow the traditions of men, we are hypocrites.
We men have made many traditions, many organizations that say: give your donation, give your offering, i.e. if you give one thousand dollars, you will receive more money and you will have treasures in heaven, etc. etc. Yet, they don’t realize that we have to begin offering to heaven our own treasures which are within our own psychosomatic self. Thus, if you are not honoring you Father and Mother in your physicality you are not doing Korban, which is what Cain was doing; yet Abel was doing Korban which is also related with animal sacrifices
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: – Genesis 4: 4
What animals was Abel sacrificing? These are not the animals that we find outside; these are the animals that we find within. First, we have to sacrifice the animal sexual force; this is normally done in childhood when Habel in his innocence brings of the firstlings of his flock, thus our God receives that hormonal animal force in the brain through the whole endocrine system. Yet when we are already covered with a personality, when we are already reasoning, then we have to do such animal sacrifice by our own will, and does kill inner animals, sacrifice inner animals, this is Korban. Anger is an animal within us, greed, lust, laziness, gluttony, etc., all of them are animals within. Thus, this is how God will be pleased with our Korban; God would respect our offering, our Abel’s type of Korban. But Cain only thinks that by giving the leftover to God is enough in order to be saved; this is why Jesus - knowing the value of the commandment - said. “You make the word of God of none effect through your traditions.”
Listen, the ten commandments of God given to Moses are related to the ten Sephiroth, these are for those who walk on the path. It is not by believing in them that you are going to be saved or be transformed but by doing the word, which is what we have to do.
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a mirror: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. – James 1: 22-25
And this is why the Bible states at the beginning of the fifth chapter:
And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth. – Genesis 5: 3
Actually the word שת Seth begins with Shin as well, as you can see. The sound of the letter Shin can be sss or ssshhh. If you read the Bible in Hebrew you will see that the name Seth begins with Shin, it begins with fire and ends with Tav, which is the cross.
The mysteries of the letters that come after the letter Kuf, with which you write Cain, are Reish, Shin and Tav. Rosh-head, Shin-fire and Tav - the cross, which are related to the mystery that we are explaining here; the letter Reish refers to the head; the letter Shin relates to the fire and Tav to the cross. Those three letters hide the mystery of the transformation of Cain into Seth, or better said the transformation of Cain into Cainan, as the Bible states in Genesis chapter four and five:
And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of יהוה. - Genesis 4: 25, 26
And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan. – Genesis 5: 9
Explanation: one reaches the level of Enosh (human being) from Shin and Tav, because Seth is the outcome of the sexual fire (of Ish and Isha) when you transmute it by means of the cross (Tav), Seth is the Kundalini, the third son (the Holy Conciliation) the outcome of Adam (the Holy Affirmation) and Eve (the Holy Denying). Adam is your brain and Eve is your sex, they are not outside but inside of you. So when you start doing the alchemical work, then you beget Seth inside of you, which is the outcome of Daath, the knowledge of good and evil (Ob and Obd). Thus, this is how Seth is being born within you, and Seth gives birth to Enosh, which means that the fire, Seth, the outcome of the cross, better said, the mystery of the fire within the cross, in other words, INRI (Ignis Natura Renovatur Integra); thus from that Seth, Enosh is born.
In other words the human being that human being which we always think we are, is the outcome of INRI. Enosh, the true human Being has seven bodies. Enosh is similar to Enoch, the son of Cain.
And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. – Genesis 4: 17
This Enoch is different, it relates to a type of vision that relates to the lower chakras, a vision when humanity knows evil and is awakened in evil and perceiving things in Klipoth in hell. Yet, in the process of time when you repent and transmute and transform yourself, then Seth is born within you. And Seth, the energies rising in the spinal column, gives birth to Enosh, a name which is also written with Shin at the end.
Enosh אנוש is written with Aleph, Nun, Vav and Shin (the fire is at the end of the word) yet Shin is at the beginning of the word Shatan; this means that when Shin, the fire of Shatan is already transformed by אנו “Anu” (“we” in Hebrew, man and woman), then “Anush” Enosh, the “Manu” is born.
And Enosh lived ninety years, and begat Cainan. – Genesis 5: 9
Thus, “Anush” Enosh (the “Anu” atom and Shin, the fire) gives birth to Cainan, who is the outcome of all the alchemy of the fire that at this point we have talked about.
All the atoms of the universe are nothing but passing vestures of the primordial Anu atom. This primordial Anu atom is Nirvanic. The objective material universe is born from a Nirvanic condensation. The entire universe is granulated Fohat (Shin). The entire material universe is elaborated with the granulations of Fohat (Fire). – Kundalini Yoga by Samael Aun Weor
We have to become Cainan, the son of Enosh (the “Anu” atom and Shin, the fire) in order for us to say: “now we now good and evil,” now I am Cainan. Nevertheless, now we are only Cain and as Cain is how we start doing the work, the alchemical work. Did you understand this? This is important to comprehend, because all these fiery archetypes that you find named in the bible relate to alchemy and Kabbalah, they are not personages of the past but alchemical elements of the present.
The Bible is a guide in order for you to do the alchemical work. We need to reach the level of Enosh in order to receive “Anu” the grace of God. Because only Enosh can receive the grace of God, meaning that gift that Christianity call Jesus Christ, which is an archetype that you have to incarnate, but first you have to reach the level of Enosh. Before that you cannot incarnate it. Because you have to build the vessels, that will take that “Shin” within you in order for you to receive the grace, which is that salvation, which is hidden in the word והשיה Yeshua. Behold the name Yeshua which is translated as Jesus in Hebrew also has the letter Shin in the middle; that is the higher aspect of Shin. In order for you to receive that Shin in the middle of Iod Hei Vav Hei, because when you write the letter Shin in the middle of the word Iod Hei Vav Hei you read Yeshua, who is the Messiah, the fire that anoints you when you reach the level of Enosh; then you can say: We are not yet saved, but the Lord is with me in order to keep this alchemical work that is to be done by grace.
My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden (Malkuth): for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. – Luke 1: 47, 48
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? - Roman 10: 13, 14
Because the Lord, the Christ which is fire will help us to annihilate all that animality that is impossible for us to annihilate and to deal with our karma, our debts, that we have because of all the evil deeds which we did in the past. Thus, the fire within you will do the work with you; that is to receive the grace of God.
But you have to reach the level of Enosh. And Enosh the level of Cainan, and Cainan the level of Mahalaleel, and Mahalaleel the level of Jared, and Jared the level of Enoch (the heavenly seer):
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. - Genesis 5: 24
Thus, it is not like many people think that salvation comes solely because this is how it is literally written in the gospels. Understand Paul of Tarsus talks about it.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. - Ephesians 2: 8. 9
Meaning, when Enosh, the human being is built, then we continue working, not by initiatic deeds but by faith, because all initiations end with Enosh. The rest, which are the heavenly levels relate to the annihilation of our animality; such alchemical work is performed by the Holy Denying and that Holy Denying is precisely Habel, united with Christ, the fire. That Habel is Tiphereth, the human soul which has to deny himself completely, to become worthless for evil, the one who says: “I am nothing.” The Lord is eliminating all of that, which is something within us, this, in order to make of Habel an empty vessel again, in order for God to enter, into that human being and to appear within him. This Holy Denying is precisely the work performed by Jesus Christ, that archetype that was represented by the Master Aberamentho (Jesus of Nazareth) and that is written in the gospels. Sadly, the people took that teaching in the wrong way; since now, everybody thinks that we are going to receive that archetype, right now, just by believing on him or by reading or memorizing what is written in the gospels or in the letters of Paul. Such a way of thinking is wrong 100%.
Comprehend that we need to do a lot of alchemical work, because faith without alchemical works is dead. The works of faith comes after we reach the level of Enosh. Faith is the other aspect of human development after the initiations.
Audience: Is wanting to be rich always a desire of Cain? Even if you put money in its rightful place and you realize that money is always for food shelter and clothing?
Instructor: Well, it is obvious that money is necessary in this day and age and to have shelter food and clothing is necessary. But we have to be happy with the rights of Canchorita. The rights of Canchorita are just shelter food and clothing. Master Jesus said:
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your (Inner) Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Luke 12: 29-31
If by law you receive money, wealth, receive it happily and use it wisely. Because to be rich physically in this world is not a sin, it is not a crime. But to live only for that, to be alive only for that and to exercise yourself only to get more and more money like this society, is of course a waste of time. You need a career in order to survive in this society, that is good.
You need money, yes, but don’t make that your priority; because sooner or later you will die, and everything that you have will be left here on the earth and then you will face your own God, who will ask you: “What do you have for me” then you might answer: “Oh well I was just making a lot of money because I had to survive.” “OK,” your God will say, “go back and try to do something for me.” Then, you return again and commit the same mistake again.
A career and money is good, but proffer more time for your inner God, because the kingdom of heaven is first and the rest is added onto us. It is difficult to get to that point, because most of us are so identified with this society. We have to get what we need and not what we covet. Remember the tenth commandment: You shall not covet the things of the earth.
Audience: You said we are supposed not to covet anything from the earth. Would it be against the inner Being to covet the things of heaven?
Instructor: If we covet the things from heaven that is also wrong. We shouldn’t covet the things from the earth and neither the things from heaven. Nonetheless, in the beginning when we start doing this work, we start with Cain, because he is alive, right? And Habel is dead, that is a fact, thus we start as Cain. Thus, Cain is alive in us and Habel is dead, but we have to resuscitate Habel and for that we need to work with the Holy Denying, that is, to remove from within all those egos until Habel is growing and growing and growing in us and thus developing the soul. Remember that Habel means worthless, futile, emptiness; this means that what you are doing is making a space for God. But in the beginning you will find egos related with Cain that covet even spiritual things. And this is precisely the problem of many meditation practitioners. When you sit down to meditate and covet to experience something related with God. You don’t experience it, because you are coveting that. It is Cain the one who is meditating there. To experience God, you have to be Habel, you have to feel empty, not to covet anything because the truth comes to us without any expectations. Every experience with God comes when you are empty, without coveting, but when we start coveting it we then don’t have it. And of course that is our problem, since we as Cain have ninety seven percent of ego, and as Habel three percent of emptiness. Thus practically Habel, our grace, is dead; we have to take Habel out of hell and to put him into activity. Habel in the heart is intuition. Habel in the pineal gland is to remember your Self, moment after moment, here and now. Habel is the outcome of transmutation; he is the steam, the breath that goes up through alchemy. Sacrifice for humanity is Habel, the one who gives the firstlings to God. Yet, to reach Habel, to develop Habel is not easy. This is why we have to meditate a lot in order to comprehend Cain, the ego, this, in order to release ourselves from bondage and in order to reach the level in which we can say “I’m worthless.” When God sees that you are worthless he then says “ok, now I am in you, and I want to do something through you, because you are no longer coveting anything, you are worthy. But if we think, well I am capable of everything, then God says, well if you are capable of everything, why am I going to be inside of you, if you can do everything. Unfortunately, we are very proud.
So do you grasp this? Did you understand it? Did you comprehend it? What Adam and Eve are, what the alchemical work is, what Cain and Abel are within you, what is Seth, Enosh, etc.?
Because when you read the Bible, it shows the names of Enosh, Adam, Ish, words which are related to “Man”. Sometimes it is written Adam and sometimes it is written Ish. Sometimes man is Adam and sometimes man is Enosh. But every single name has a different meaning. Enosh is the outcome of all the alchemical work. Adam is your brain, that positive fire with which you have to work with. And Ish correspond to the duality of the fire within you. The problem is that when you read modern Bibles, the translators, the people who translated the Bible are not initiates, they are no Kabbalists, they are not alchemists. They just translated it and did their best. And on top of that, other people come trying to explain what is so poorly translated. Thereafter, you end reading Bibles written by those people who say: “The whole Bible explained” Thus, you find a big book where every single biblical paragraph is explained according to Cain. Yet, when you read their explanations, you then realize that it is their Cain trying to explain the mysteries.
Somebody suggested to me to write the book of Genesis Gnostically speaking. I said, “What, you want me to write the Maha-Bharata, this is what you want from me?” A big thing! It is not like as taking one archetype and disclose it as meaning one only thing in one book. Every archetype has seven interpretations and ten times seven. How would you write all of that? In the end you would be lost. It is better to meditate, to comprehend that in your consciousness in order for it not to be lost. It all depends on what you intuitively see.
In relation with this lecture I was studying it in meditation and I saw what you heard from me, but there are other things hidden within those archetypes. The archetypes are represented in many ways and we have to learn that, because that is the problem of this humanity. They have the Bible, but they do not understand it. And this is why there are so many sects and so many problems, but problems cease when you go into Kabbalah and Alchemy. People say: ‘Well Alchemy is the science of Allah, what do we have to do in order to understand it?’ Patience, study the Tree of Life and Tree of Knowledge. On our website we have many tools in order for you to understand, thus, study it, and understand that all of that is in relation with you.
When you associate Kabbalah and Alchemy within you, inside of you, then you comprehend more.
Audience: Can you explain in more depth how the fire awakens consciousness?
Instructor: The fire awakens consciousness when you release it; this is the fire of Chavah, of Eve, the feminine fire that put the essence, Habel, into activity. For that we have to release that fire. Notwithstanding, when we are active - sexually speaking - and we reach the orgasm or the spasm, such a feminine liquid or fluid that we have in the sexual organs - the habitat of that fire – which is the water, the semen, is released, is lost. But if we learn how to release the fire inside, inwardly by practicing Pranayama if we are bachelors or bachelorettes, then that fire will illuminate our consciousness, will resuscitate our Habel. And if we do it in the very sexual act without orgasm by combining the fire of husband and wife it is even better. Because then the fire rises with more strength in the middle of our spinal column and becomes Seth that eventually will give birth to Enosh, the human Being within us. In this process; the fire has to develop thirty three degrees in your spinal column, related with your thirty three vertebrae. So it is in steps and degrees that the fire goes up in seven scales. In order to comprehend how that fire awakens and develops within us, read the book The Three Mountains by Samael Aun Weor, where he synthesizes the work of the fire, because Samael is the king of fire and he explained that very well. So remember well, that the fire that here we are talking about is the sexual fire, that we need to learn how to transmute; the fire of our sexual organs. Because the other fire hidden within the cerebral spinal fluid is already positive, but unfortunately polluted by Eve, so we have to clean it. It is a great work, because the cerebral spinal fluid nurtures the brain, the medulla and the excess fluid is absorbed by the blood and nurtures the other nervous systems, the grand sympathetic and the parasympathetic which are the helpers of the central nervous system. And by doing that is how the fire will awaken the chakras, the churches that you will find in the mysteries of the book of Revelation within you, Assiah, your spinal column.
Audience: To create the physical body takes nine months in this physical plane. Can the semen create that quickly if we do alchemy?
Instructor: Well, the creation of the internal bodies, the solar bodies is a psychosomatic process performed by the Divine Mother since she is the one who creates them, within us. In order to do that, in order to acquire that gift, she demands from us the necessary moral level. That is the reason why we have to work - along with transmutation - in meditation for the comprehension of the ego. For instance, the great Master Helene Petrovna Blavatsky was single, she worked a lot with yoga, not Hatha Yoga, this was another type of yoga, thus, she awoke a lot of powers, but she did not have the internal bodies. She wrote a lot, because she awoke a lot. Now then, the Master Samael stated that in ten years she build all of her solar bodies. But those ten years were based on all the work that she did before; thus, such a work and all the psychological work that she did in the past, helped her. This is why it was easy for her to build their solar bodies in ten years of alchemical work. But not all people are that serious as Madame Blavatsky who dedicated her entire life to do that work; so, all depends on you, if you combine your alchemical work with your Cain who oppositely does this or that. Then, (after the second initiation) maybe in five years of serious work with alchemy you will build your astral body and likewise each of the bodies that we need to build in the alchemical work in order to reach the level of Enosh, human being. So, the more you work with the three factors, the more you will speed your walk, your initiations on the path. If you work with the three factors only once in a while, then only once in a while you will advance. If you work with the three factors every day without rest, doing what you can for humanity, meditating on your ego and transmuting your sexual energy, then you will advance very fast. So there is no time; there is only as the Bible states: “time, times and a half of a time” that is a Kabbalistic statement; so when we Kabbalistically inquire about that time, times and a half of a time, we discover that the time for the completion of the great work varies in each one of us.
