Elohim (אלהים): Aleph 1 + Lamed 30 + Hei 5 + Iod 10 + Mem-Final 40 = 86, 8+6 = 14, 1+4 = 5, the Pentalpha
And Jehovah (יהוה)regretted that he had made Adam on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And Jehovah (יהוה) said, I will destroy Adam whom I have created, from the face of the ground (האדמה HaAdamah).” - Genesis 6: 6, 7
“Rabbi Jehudah יהודה said: "Adam of the ground" often means that he (יהוה אלהים Jehovah Elohim-Binah) is considered the "husband of the ground (Malkuth)." - Zohar
This lecture is going to be related to (יהוה אלהים Jehovah Elohim-Binah) Saturn, given that today is Saturday; and Saturn, which in Greek is Kronos, is related with time. Indeed, the elucidation of this lecture will unveil many mysteries that we need to comprehend, in order to walk on the path of the realization of our Being, our true self. It is written:
"And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud; and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire (this angel is Orifiel, the genie of Saturn). “And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth. “And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.” “And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. “And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven. “And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things that are therein, that there should be time no longer: “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he had declared to his servants the prophets.” - Revelation 10: 1-7
We read, a voice from heaven said: "Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." Today we will unveil this mystery of God, because we are in the times of the seventh seal; according to this prophecy, Nostradamus, wrote:
The year 1999 seven month,
From the sky will come a great King of (לאימה L'Aimah) terror:
To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois
Before after Mars to reign by good luck
(Century X, Quatrain 72)
So, "The year 1999 seven month, From the sky will come a great King of (לאימה L'Aimah) terror."
When people read the former prophesy they think that Nostradamus is literally talking about the year 1999 which already passed. However, we, the Gnostics, understand these numbers to be kabbalistic in nature. Thus, in order to know how to interpret these prophecies, we need to know Kabbalah, because Nostradamus besides being an astrologer, seer, and a great prophet, was also a kabbalist. So, in Kabbalah, the year 1999 is 1 + 9 + 9 + 9 = 28. 28 is 2 + 8 = 10. The number 10, in Kabbalah, in the Major Arcana, is the Wheel of Samsara, the recurrent zodiacal wheel around which our solar system cosmically rotates, lasting for approximately 25,968 terrestrial years in every root race. Right now, we are at the very end of that cosmic cycle of 25,968 years in our root race.
“Our present Root Race, the Aryan Race that populates the five continents of the world, was born after the universal flood and will last throughout the era of Aquarius, which we are presently in. The voyage of our solar system began in Aquarius and will end in Aquarius... Chokmah, Heaven of Uranus, the Mahaparanirvanic World... Chokmah is governed by the zodiac, this is true...” - Samael Aun Weor
Saturn is the fulfiller of the end of our root race age, which is, the times of the End, since we read that it is written:
“And (the angel) sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things that are therein, that there should be time no longer .”
According to the seven days of the week, we know that today is the seventh day called Saturday, which is related to Saturn. In Hebrew Saturn is Shabbatai שבתאי, and from that word comes the word Shabbath שבת, which is of course the seventh day; but Shabbath שבת also means, “to rest.” It is a word that relates to Malkuth מלכות, because Malkuth is the seventh Sephirah, when counting the days of Genesis from Barashyth בראשית (“the beginning”), when Elohim אלהים created (Bera ברא) the heavens and the earth.
“And (Akash) the earth was formless and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And (חסד-Chesed) the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters.” - Genesis 1: 2
So, first day is the Sephirah Chesed, second day Geburah, third Tiphereth, fourth Netzah, fifth Hod, sixth Yesod, and the seventh (Shebyith שביעית) is Malkuth מלכות.
So, in Leviticus 19: 30, we see the plural words Ath-Shabbatoth את-שבתות (“my Sabbaths”), in Hebrew—the letters Vav and Tav at the end of any word is a feminine-plural ending, Shabbatoth שבתות.
“The verse added Aleph Tav (Ath את). "My Shabbatot את-שבתות" refers to both the higher Shabbath שבת and the lower Shabbath שבת, which are joined as one (Shabbath שבת), and are both concealed.” - Zohar
In alchemical Kabbalah, Shabbath שבת is Malkuth מלכות, the wife of Shabbatai שבתאי (Saturn). So, Shabbatai שבתאי (Saturn) is Shabbath שבת, (Saturday, the Seventh Day), Malkuth מלכות. Remember that it is written:
“And on the seventh (Shebyith שביעית) day Elohim ended his work which he had made; and he rested (Shabbath שבת) on the seventh day (Shabbath שבת) from all his work which he had made.” - Genesis 2: 2
Elohim rested on Saturday because the word Shabbath שבת also means “to rest.” In order to comprehend how Elohim ended his work on the Shabbath שבת,we have to delve alchemically and kabbalistically into the very deep meaning of this resting.
Remember that Saturn is Kronos and Kronos is “time,” and time is measured with the cycle of 12 hours.
So the Wheel of Samsara relates to these seven mysterious seals of the Book of Revelation. For this reason Nostradamus says: “The year 1999 seven month.” Of course, if we read that literally, we say: "Oh, the seventh month is July, or maybe September, since September means seven,” right? But, no, kabbalistically 1999 = 28, and 28 = 10, the Wheel of Samsara, and “Seven Month” means seventh step, seventh seal.
“Humanity has so far opened Six Seals, it has to open the Seventh. The First Seal was opened in the First sub-race, in the Central Plateau of Asia; the Second was opened in southern India and throughout Asia in general, with the Second sub-race; the Third was opened by the Third sub-race, in Egypt, Chaldea, Phenicia, Syria, Babylon, etc .; the Fourth Seal was opened in the Greco-Roman era of the Caesars; the Fifth was opened by the Saxons, Teutons, English, etc .; the Sixth was opened when the Spaniards invaded Latin America and mixed themselves with the American native races; and the Seventh Seal is now to be opened, with the mixture of all the bloods of the entire world in the United States, Europe, etc., that is, with the advent of the Seventh sub-race of the great Aryan Root Race. It is, therefore, the opening of the Seventh Seal. A what time is the seventh is opened? I do not know, neither the angels of Heaven know it, not even the Son knows it, but only the Ancient of the Centuries; thus, nobody knows it. What I do know is that it is about to be opened, because Hercolubus is in the sight of the astronomers. Astronomers made maps of the Great Catastrophe. Why do not they publish them? Because it is forbidden, they are censored, they are not allowed to unleash collective psychosis.” - Samael Aun Weor
“From the sky will come a great King of terror.” - Nostradamus
“The atheists, enemies of the eternal one, want to take heaven by assault, and to conquer other worlds of space. But, soon they will be wounded to death. The terror of love and law reigns within the sacred space where the innumerable worlds move and palpitate.
Interplanetary voyages are only for divine humanities of the starry space.
The “human being” of the Earth is not yet worthy of entering the starry space. Let us put a chimpanzee or any other ape inside a laboratory and observe what will happen...
When these “human beings” conquer the Moon, when the atheists (enemies of the eternal one) profane the sacred space, when the wise men of this great Babylon, filled with pride and arrogance, prepare themselves to conquer other worlds, then the end will come.” - Samael Aun Weor
Presently, this humanity has opened already six seals of the Book of Revelation, and it is just waiting in order to open the last one. That seventh seal relates to life on other planets, other cosmic humanities. So, when will this humanity open the seventh seal? When we dare to navigate Aimah אימה, Mother Space, and when we become sure that we are not alone in the Cosmos, in the Universe, then the opening of the seventh seal will be fulfilled and the end will come.
Thus, what Nostradamus wrote must be understood kabbalistically. The year 1999 represents a complete sidereal cycle of the earth around the 12 zodiacal constellations of the cosmic belt, the cosmic wheel; and the “seven month," is the seventh seal. Any alchemist, any kabbalist can see this very clearly; we have to not interpret prophesies literally, because we then fall into mistakes.
People nowadays say: “Nostradamus failed, because the year 1999 passed and nothing happened," but the “seven month” hasn’t happened yet. Remember that the prophecy states: “The year 1999, seven month.” This seventh month is related to the seventh planet, which is Saturn. Esoterically speaking, Saturn-Binah, the Holy Spirit, also relates to us in Yesod, sex, because these prophesies are either fulfilled in general, externally, with humanity or they are fulfilled spiritually, within us. The manner in which these prophecies are fulfilled depends upon if we enter into the path. To open the seventh seal of the Book of Revelation within us, relates with the seven bodies of the true Human Being; the physical, vital, astral, mental, causal, Buddhic and Atmic bodies. Those are the seven bodies of the true Human Being, who is aware of them; these are the seven seals, initiatically speaking. These seven seals also relate with the seven chakras, because each body has seven levels; the seven chakras relate with seven churches that Book of Revelation talks about. So, Saturn is indeed Kronos and relates to Binah, the third Logos, the third Sephirah of the first triangle in a Tree of Life. Master Samael Aun Weor states:
"The victorious adept becomes a son of the serpent, a serpent that must to be swallowed by the eagle of the Spirit (the Third Logos, the Holy Spirit). Kronos-Saturn is Shiva, the firstborn of creation, the Being of our Being, the Arch-hierophant and Arch-magi, the eagle of Anahuac. Greek mythology considers Kronos as one of the oldest gods, a true creator of gods. Saturn-Kronos, the rebellious eagle, swallows the snake in order to transform us into gods. In this myth we find again the transcendental idea that the one who gives life is also the giver of death. Unquestionably, Saturn with his sickle easily becomes death with his scythe. If the seed does not die, the plant is not born; if the snake is not swallowed by the saturnine eagle, we would never be gods. The Jana, Yana, Gnana, or Gnosis is the science of Saturn, that is, the science of initiatory knowledge, the science of the Enoichion or Seer. However, it is necessary to clarify that not in a single of the previous paragraphs have we made an allusion to a certain planetary ruler, Nazarite, or Kabir in particular. We just want to specifically refer to the intimate Saturn, the divine Augoides, our individual Logos (Binah), the eagle of each of us". - Samael Aun Weor
Thus, Saturn or Shabbatai שבתאי, as it is named in Hebrew, is the focal point of this lecture. If we delve into Judaism, we discover that they worship Binah—Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים, Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn—every single Saturday, since Saturday is Saturn, which is Shabbatai שבתאי; from that word comes Shabbath שבת, which is very interesting. Shabbatai שבתאי is Saturn, but Shabbath שבת is a feminine word that relates to Malkuth מלכות. In other words, Shabbath שבת is the wife of Shabbatai שבתאי; they are the angle of two intersecting lines, two extremes, two poles of one thing. So, Saturn is Shabbatai שבתאי, who in Christianity is called the Holy Spirit and Malkuth מלכות—Mytzrahim מצרים, is Miriam מרים, “Mary”—is his Shabbath שבת, his wife. In other words:
“And Elohim (Binah-Saturn-Shabbatai שבתאי) blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it (better said, in Her, the Shabbath שבת, his wife) he had rested from all his work which Elohim (Jehovah-Elohim יהוה אלהים, Binah, Shabbatai שבתאי) created and made.” - Genesis 2: 2
In classical Greek mythology we know about the story of Saturn or Kronos: he was the youngest child or son of Gaia, the Earth. His father was Uranus-Heaven. Uranus-Heaven impregnated Gaia many times and engendered many things; among them the titans, his children, and monsters as well.
Mythology states that Gaia spoke with her child, Saturn, and told him that she was tired of being impregnated by Uranos. So, they fabricated a scythe, and Gaia said to Saturn: "when I am with your dad, you come and cut his testicles." According to mythology, when Uranos was lying down with Gaia, Saturn came from behind and cut his testicles. These fell into the ocean, into the sea, and from them was born Aphrodite. Thereafter, Uranos said to Saturn: "In the same clandestine way that you took my power, your power is going to be taken by one of your children."
When Saturn became the king of the universe, he said of his sister, Rhea—another name for an unfoldment of the Divine Mother; Saturn and Rhea represent the involution into manifestation of the cosmic forces of Uranos—"Every time that my wife Rhea gives birth, I am going to swallow her child, thus no king will come here after me."
Rhea, the wife of Saturn, bore many children: the gods of the Olympus. But, every time one of those gods was born, Saturn would say to Rhea: "Come here, give me than child." And he would swallow it.
When Rhea gave birth to her sixth child, she said: "I have to save the last of my children from my mighty husband, because he will swallow him too." Thus, instead of giving him her sixth and final child, who she named Zeus, she gave him a rock, wrapped in cloth. Saturn swallowed that rock, thus, this is how she saved her son Jupiter-Zeus. A beautiful myth.
In paintings, you often see Saturn eating a child, masticating it with blood pouring out, and I was talking with a friend of mine, and said: "That is not accurate, because if Saturn took the last child, that he thought was Jupiter, but was actually a stone, he would break his teeth while trying to chew it." In that mythical story of Saturn, he was swallowing them, not chewing them…
When Jupiter-Zeus was grown, he came and fought against Saturn and the titans, and he defeated them. In order to do this, his mother Rhea prepared an extremely special sleeping emetic potion for Saturn to drink; such an emetic was so powerful, that it forced him to instantly disgorge all of the contents of his stomach, in the reverse order of swallowing. Thus, that potion forced Saturn to vomit all the gods that he swallowed before. Those gods were Neptune, Hades, and all of those that you find on Olympus. This is how Saturn was defeated.
All of this indeed is a mystery, because Saturn is the father of the gods. Master Samael says Saturn is Binah, the Holy Spirit, which in this day and age humanity is using in a wrong way, because the Holy Spirit (Binah) is the sexual force, the force of Saturn. That is why, sexually speaking, the Shabbath שבת is very sacred for those that follow the path of Judaism. They perform the sexual act on Friday evening, because “the evening and the morning were” already Saturday. So obviously, Saturn is the Holy Spirit (Binah), and that is why we gave lectures on Saturdays as well. Remember that in Rome they were celebrating Saturnalia when in the sign of Capricorn.
Christmas is celebrated in the sign of Capricorn, because in Capricorn comes Boreas, the God of winter. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, thus, the Greek-Roman Saturnalia was transformed with Christianity into Christmas or in Judaism as Chanukah, the festivity of the lights.
“And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light.” - Genesis 1: 3
In Judaism, the festivity of the lights is called Chanukah חנוכה, from Chanuch חנוך, Enoch, or Enochion, as called by the Greeks, the "Seer of the Open Eye." In order to be a seer, you have to open your inner eye, and in order to open it, you have to draw INRI towards it. Thus, you will comprehend that the festivity of the lights, Saturnalia and Christmas, are the same; in them we celebrate the lights. What lights? The lights of the Seven Logoi, the mystery of the seven stars which are in the right hand of the Cosmic Christ, who is in heaven.
This is precisely what we have to understand when entering into the mysteries of Saturn or the Ancient of Days as it is called in Kabbalah.
So, this Enochion or Enoch is called Chanuch חנוך in Hebrew, and from this Chanuch חנוך comes Chanukah חנוכה or the festivital of the lights in Judaism, which is celebrated around the same time as the Saturnalia.
Initiatically speaking, this light is INRI, hidden with the veil of mystery; this, in order for initiates to understand that the light of the Ain Soph Aur is in related with the spiritual development that we need to pass through, in order to celebrate the exodus or the end of times within us.
This exodus or the end of times within us is called Shabbat HaGadol שבת הגדול, the “Big Saturday.” Let us read what happened after the Exodus:
“And the people spake against Elohim, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul abhor this light bread.
And יהוה sent (Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים) fiery serpents (from Geburah) among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.” - Numbers 21: 5, 6
“And the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which יהוה אלהים had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath Elohim said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat (like a beast of the field), and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” - Genesis 1-6
“Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against יהוה, and against thee; pray unto יהוה, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.
And יהוה said unto Moses, Make thee a (Seraph שרף) fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.
And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.” - Numbers 21: 5-9
To understand the former quotations, let us now talk about Quetzalcoatl.
"Unquestionably, the snake devoured by the eagle becomes in fact and by its own right the feathered (fiery) serpent". - Samael Aun Weor
If instead of feathered serpent we said (Seraph שרף) fiery serpent, it is the same; they are synonymous. You should know what the feathered or (Seraph שרף) fiery serpent is.
According to the natives of America, in all the countries from Mexico to South America, and even here in the North (United States and Canada), they have a custom of adorning themselves with feathers from the top of the head back through the spine. The feather is a symbol of a bird, like the Holy Spirit, the white dove or the eagle. It is a symbol of the bird that flies, the א Aleph symbol of the element air, but also of אש Esh, fire: if you use your imagination, you will see that the feathers resemble flames, the flames adorning those that develop the Kundalini.
So, those flames are represented by the feathers that the ancient Native Americans symbolized along their spinal medulla, from the cocxys (where the fire rises and develops). Such a feathered or fiery (Seraph שרף) fire is the same Kundalini. Such a serpent is also called the snail, which is protected by the 33 shells, which are the 33 vertebrae of our spinal column.
So that snail goes along the spinal medulla and is what Mexicans, or the Secret Doctrine of Anahuac, call Quetzalcoatl. Quetzalcoatl was he who was protected by shells or that had many houses, snail-houses. When you know Alchemy, you understand that they are talking about the bones of the spinal column, the medulla, which is a central middle path; it is where the serpent (the fire) rises, and is protected by the shells or our vertebrae. The feathers are the fire.
So the feathered serpent is a symbol or the mixture of the fiery (Seraph שרף) serpent with the Dove, the Holy Spirit; it is the fire of the Holy Ghost. Quetzalcoatl, an initiate that is first swallowed by the serpent, then swallowed by the eagle, displays the same symbols, the same myth that we were talking about with Saturn swallowing his own children. Remember that Saturn was swallowing gods; so, don't be afraid, because we are not gods.
One of the axioms of Gnosticism states:
"Saturn-Binah - the Holy Spirit - doesn't eat filth, he doesn't eat rubbish, garbage. He only eats holy things."
So, we are not holy. But, the goal of any initiate is to become a feathered serpent. For that we have to annihilate all the filthiness that we have within, because the serpent doesn't eat anything filthy. And that is precisely the esoteric meaning of Saturn, the same feathered serpent, which represents the union of the male-female forces of Binah. As it is written:
“And Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים said, It is not good that Adam should be alone; I will make from him (Shabbath שבת) an help meet for him .” - Genesis 2: 18
To understand this, the Master Samael Aun Weor writes, in the Secret Doctrine of Anahuac, the following:
"The connection of the lingam-yoni without the ejaculation of the ens seminis is certainly the specific key by which Adam and Eve can awaken the serpent of Saturn in their esoteric anatomy."
What is this serpent of Saturn? Remember that Adam and Eve fell on Saturday. If you read the second chapter of the Book of Genesis, you will see that on Saturday (which is the seventh day) is when Binah-Saturn Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים said to Adam:
“And the Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים commanded Adam, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." - Genesis 2: 17
This command was given on the Seventh Day, the Saturn-Day, because if you want to know your Being, you have to obey the superior laws of Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים,Binah, which is ruled by Saturn; this, in order to develop the fiery feathered serpent, the Saturnian serpent.
L'Aimah Elohim, Cihuacoatl, Terror of Love and Law
"The Saturnian serpent does not eat anything filthy; Rhea, the divine wife of Kronos, can only devour psychic and spiritual principles, glorious bodies, forces, powers, etc. In the name of the truth we must make the following enunciation, "Without any specific particular exception, no initiate, nor even those which in the Western esoteric tradition reached the level of ‘Adeptus Exemptus’ could enjoy the powers of the snake without have been previously devoured by it.” It is not enough to achieve the ascent of the igneous serpent of our magical powers along the spinal column, from chakra to chakra (we will say shell to shell, like the snail); it is urgent, undelayable, unpostponable, to be devoured by the snake... only thus will we become something distinct, different." - The Secret Doctrine of Anahuac
The fiery serpent is precisely the main point in these teachings: we teach how to awaken that serpent of brass, the Kundalini. However, some of us that have many years in this doctrine do not understand it, because they say, "Well, I am practicing this awakening of this sexual force in my spinal column, but still I don't see any development." In other words, they are saying they don't see any results, magical powers, etc. But they have to understand that in order to enjoy the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we have to psychologically die. When we say that we have to psychologically die, we are talking about the death of our defects, vices and errors, our inhuman elements that we call animal elements that all of us have; namely, lust, anger, pride, envy, vanity, laziness, gluttony, etc. Such death is precisely the positive aspect of this matter.
If we could develop to 100% the fiery serpent Kundalini, in our current state, with all of those defects and vices, it would be as if the Holy Spirit would transform us into immortal demons. All of those defects that we already described are attributes of demons, of animals. So, it would be absurd to believe that the Holy Spirit will swallow us and transform us into immortal demons; that has never happened, and will never happen.
Only the gods are immortal, and in order to become a god we have to annihilate those demonic aspects that we carry.
Observe this graphic of the Tree of Life that we were talking about. It is divided into three triangles. Each triangle relates to the four worlds of Kabbalah, which we have to experience by developing the fiery serpent, the fire of the Holy Ghost. Remember that Jesus said:
“And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:
Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” - Matthew 10: 14-16
This is what Jesus said. He taught us to "be wise as serpents," which is to develop that serpentine fire in our spine. "Meek like doves" means, to be with the power of the Holy Spirit, which in Nahua language is called Quetzalcoatl and in Mayan language is called Kukulkan.
So, study the four worlds of Kabbalah, Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah, Assiah; in each world you find the ten Sephiroth. This is how we need to understand Kabbalah, in order not to fall into mistakes; that is, to not fall into the bottom left, which as we see is the world of Klipoth (Hell), which is the inverted Tree of Life. Klipoth is called the Tree of Death.
What we want is to rise into the different worlds of Kabbalah in order to reach the top, which is the Abstract Absolute Space. All of us have part of those four worlds within us. From Atziluth we have all of those archetypes, represented esoterically by the people of Israel in the Bible, which are the elements that we have to develop in our psyche; they are not developed, but we can develop them. Those Archetypes are what we have from Atziluth.
From the world of Briah we have the power of creation, which is in our sexual organs. The world of Yetzirah (world of formation) is also related with the sexual force. We are going to study them in order to understand what the “end of times” that we have to be aware of is.
Assiah עשיה in Hebrew means, “doing, making”; it is the world of matter and action, the physical world, and our physicality. Thus, the seven churches of Revelation which are in Assiah עשיה, are not in the continent of Asia, but in our spinal medulla. Assiah עשיה is the same Asoth עשות, which means “to do.”
Behold also how in Hebrew Saturn is written Shabbatai שבתאי, seventh is written Shebiyiy שביעי and Saturday, Shabbath שבת, which also means rest; so, we find in these words, the same meanings. It is written:
"And on the Seventh [Shebiyiyשביעי] day Elohim finished his work which he had (Asoth עשות) made; and he Shabbath [שבת] rested on the Seventh [Shebiyiyשביעי] day from all his work which he had (Asoth עשות) made. And Elohim gave his blessing to the Seventh [Shebiyiyשביעי] day and made it holy: because on that day he Shabbath [שבת] relied from all the work which he had created and (Asoth עשות) made." - Genesis 2: 2,3
What these former verses are saying is that Elohim - who in Hebrew is Shabbatai שבתאי or Binah-Saturn (the Holy Spirit) - rested on Malkuth, which is the Shabbath שבת, in order to observe all the work that he made. This is precisely what in mythology is called Saturnalia, which the so called pagans were celebrating. But those celebrations are also found in Christianity. Indeed, even if we think that we are not pagans, we have a lot of paganism in Christianity, because paganism is really related with the mythologies that have the same values that we are studying here. That is why we Gnostics love all religions. And, even if the people call us pagans, we don't care, because we know what we are doing. Gnosis is not fanaticism. Behold, in the center of the Saturnalia, we see Saturn-Binah with his scythe - the father of all gods.
“Kabbalists say that Binah is governed by Saturn; here we arrive at a point of disagreement. I do not want to say that the Holy Spirit is not governed by Saturn, that there is no relationship between them; indeed a relationship exists between them. But this is not all, because without a doubt the world of Jupiter (Chesed) is in a certain way related with Binah; this is because Binah, the Holy Spirit, has powers, a throne, and harvest the waters of life (spring rain).” - Samael Aun Weor
“And (Jupiter) the (Iaoh יהוה) Spirit of Elohim (Binah יהוה אלהים) moved upon the face of the waters (spring rain).” - Genesis 1: 2
"Initiates must hold their secrets—yet know! (Iaoh יהוה) Iao is Hades in the winter, Zeus (Jupiter) in spring, Helios in summer, and Iao in autumn." - Labeo
This is why Jove, Ioveh (Iaoh יהוה), Jupiter is called the father of all gods. Understand: the father of Jupiter is Saturn, since Binah is Iao, the Elohim that creates. So Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn, rested on Rhea, the Shabbath שבת, for all the work which he had created and made; in physical terms, we say that the man has to rest on his woman after inpregnating her in the sexual act, in order for her to create, to finish the work, and this is so obvious, because in the physical world if a man wants a child, he has to rely, to rest on Malkuth, the woman, the Shabbath שבת.
Why to rely, to rest on Malkuth, the woman, the Shabbath שבת? Well, the woman, the Shabbath שבת, is the one who makes the child in nine months; the woman, the שבת Shabbath שבת is the one who creates that. But the woman, the Shabbath שבת, needs the seed, and that seed is given by Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn, her husband. So, in this case Malkuth, which is the female aspect of Binah (Shabbath), receives from the male aspect of Binah (Shabbatai, Saturn), the forces of creation in order to create. And this is why it is written that Elohim-Binah-Shabbatai-Saturn rested on the Shabbath שבת(on the woman), on Rhea, in order to create. As below, so above; as above, so below.
Nobody here below, in this physical world, can be born again if he or she is being single; if you want to create in heaven as you create on earth, you have to work in yourselves with the two polarities of Saturn.
“This is the mystery of the double polarity. Husband and wife form a complete positive-negative polarity. But, when the husband enters another woman, or the wife enters another man in order to practice Sexual Magic, a double polarity is formed that is absolutely negative. The double polarity has no power to transmute the sexual energy. The double polarity cannot fertilize the Mercury of the Secret Philosophy with the solar fires. The double polarity cannot awaken the Kundalini, because it is absolutely negative. The Chaotic waters remain intact, without being fertilized or transmuted.
This is the mystery of the double polarity. Therefore, a male or female adulterer cannot awaken the Kundalini.” - Samael Aun Weor
And this is why the sexual force is the secret of initiation, the secret of the Sabbath. The most powerful force is found between man and woman. Only when you study Shabbatai שבתאי on Shabbath שבת will you then comprehend this.
In order to more deeply comprehend the Tree of Life, which is made by the ten Sephiroth, we have to learn how to place those Sephiroth in our three brains. Remember that we have three brains, and we walk the path of initiation through the three brains.
We enter initiation through Yesod, that relates to the sexual-instinctual-motor energy, which is the first brain, when counting the brains from the bottom to the top. Then, Tiphereth is the second brain, which we also call the emotional center, the emotional brain. Thereafter, the head, which is expressed through Daath, the third chamber—Right now, I am talking about this knowledge from my third chamber. The third chamber encompasses the head and throat, which is related with the first triangle, Kether-Chokmah-Binah. However I also understand that this first triangle relates to my three brains in itself; namely, Kether relates to my head, Chokmah to my heart, and Binah to my sex. Seeing it in this manner, kabbalistically speaking, we understand what we are reading.
In Christianity the sign of the cross is made in order to alchemically show how to unite the energy of our three brains. First, with our right hand, we make the vertical beam by pointing our head, and say: "In the name of the Father.” Then, moving our hand downwardly, we say: “the Son” by pointing the heart. Then, “and the Holy Spirit,” pointing the genitalia. Then we raise the sexual force of the Holy Spirit towards the heart, by elevating our right hand towards the left shoulder and crossing our heart by tracing the horizontal beam of the cross towards the right shoulder. Catholics end the tracing of the vertical beam at their solar plexus, thus always point towards the creative fires of the Holy Spirit, which according to Taoism, are in the adrenal glands above the kidneys; then, they go up in order to make the horizontal line of Saint Peter’s cross. So either way we have to always visualize the energies of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Remember the adrenal glands are the seat of affections and passions.
“I am he who searches the kidneys and heart: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” - Revelation 2: 23
“When the adrenal (kidney) chakras shine with immaculate whiteness like the lotus flower, it is because we have reached supreme chastity. When the adrenal chakras are dyed with a bloody passionate color, woe to us! for we are fornicators and the Word casts us into the abyss with his sword. Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth!” - Samael Aun Weor
The three brains are related with Yesod, Tiphereth and Daath, because Daath in the throat synthesizes the first triangle. Daath is knowledge; it is in the throat. I am teaching you from my throat, but this throat is nourished by my head, and it also receives strength from my heart, and from my sex. Based on that and on experience is how we teach. And that is why you see that the second triangle of the Tree of Life relates in the same way to the three brains: Tiphereth is in the sex, Geburah in the heart, and Chesed in the head. This is how we understand why the second triangle relates to the three primary forces. This is why Tiphereth is the one that receives in Shabbath שבתthe following commandment:
“And the Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים commanded Adam, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." - Genesis 2: 17
The Human Soul, Tiphereth is about to descend into Yesod (Eden), in order to meet Eve in there. This is how we understand that the forces of the head relates to the Trinity. But the one that is always manifesting that Trinity in the Human Kingdom is the Holy Spirit-Binah-Saturn-Kronos-time. So you see, for instance, that the bottom of the third triangle relates to Yesod, Hod and Netzach. You always have to place those triangles in your three brains in order to understand the doctrine, in order to understand what you are reading. For instance, Master Samael Aun Weor states:
"Binah (the Holy Spirit) is Mercury". Others say: "How is it Mercury?" Because Netzach relates to the mind, and Netzach is Hermes, the mind, Mercury, and it is ruled by Binah. Hod, which is related with the emotional center, is obviously related with the heart, the inferior forces of the heart of course, because the higher forces are in Tiphereth. And you find that Geburah is also like that, in the heart.
So, study Kabbalah with your three brains, and place all those three triangles in your three brains and you will see how easily you will understand what the Master explains. For instance, he says:
“Christ is always the son of the Divine Mother Kundalini. She always conceives her son through the work and grace of [Saturn] the Third Logos. She is always virginal, before the birth, during the birth and after the birth. Among the Egyptians, the virgin is Isis; among the Hindu, Kali (in her positive aspect); among the Aztecs, Tonantzin. She is Rhea, Cybele, Maria, Adonia, Insoberta, etc.” - Samael Aun Weor
The Divine Mother Kundalini is Shabbath שבת, the female aspect of Shabbatai שבתאי Saturn, the Holy Spirit; she is Rhea, the one that always gives her children to Saturn for him to swallow. The goal of any initiate is to be swallowed by Saturn, but in order to be swallowed by Saturn, you have to be born from Rhea. And who is Rhea? She is our Divine Mother within, the Kundalini in other words, the fiery (Seraph שרף) serpent of Moses.
“To bring back to life the great King of Angolmois”
The fiery (Seraph שרף) serpent of Moses brings back Chaiah חיה (life), the soul of Binah, the Saturnian serpent, on the seventh day, Shabbath שבת, the wife of Shabbatai שבתאי Saturn, the great King of Angolmois; that is, the great king of Anglo-months (Mois is French for, “months”); namely, Demeter, Hestia, Hera, Hades, Poseidon and Zeus, the six Luni-Solar Nordic Gods, whose father is Kronos-Saturn, the seventh.
This is how we gain the right to be swallowed by Saturn, the king of the Titans, at a very high level, the seventh level. It is the “seven month” because when Saturn vomits the initiate after swallowing her/him, she or he become a goddess or god, a feathered serpent. Alternatively, Saturn’s wife, swallow us in Tartarus, as Aimah Elohim אימה אלהים, the terror of love and law.
“Before and after (the Seraphim שרפים of) Mars (Geburah) to reign by (מזל טוב-Mazel tov) good luck (through Gnosis, דעת-Daath-Knowledge).”
This is precisely the esoteric meaning of this mystery that we are talking about here. Now as you see, the Sephirah Daath is precisely in the throat, beneath the head that is always represented by Kether (“Crown”). Chokmah and Binah are the two hemispheres of our brain. From those three Sephiroth forces, that Holy Trinity, comes the knowledge here in the throat: Daath. It is important to know what Daath is.
"Daath, the Sephirah of Hebrew mystery, is produced by the esoteric conjunction of Shiva-Shakti, Osiris-Isis, perpetually united in Yesod, the Foundation, the Ninth Sephirah, the Ninth Sphere, sex, but hidden by the mysteries of Daath which has the Tantric knowledge, which is processed with the Sahaja Maithuna, or Sexual Magic, that when correctly utilized permits the intimate realization of the Being. It is necessary that all of us profoundly reflect, that we deeply comprehend all of this. He and She are united in the Cubic Stone of Yesod, which is sex. The perfect Tantric knowledge is the outcome of the union of He and She with which we can internally self-realize ourselves in all the levels of the Being." - Samael Aun Weor
So Daath (knowledge) is the mystery that we are talking about here, which is the Sephirah in the throat. In order to spread Daath, knowledge, we have to talk. But as we said before, the two forces, “He and She,” are separated: She is below and He is above, the man and the woman, the two forces. This is why it is written: “Daath, the Sephirah of Hebrew mystery, is produced by the esoteric conjunction of Shiva-Shakti, Osiris-Isis, (Shabbatai שבתאי Shabbath שבת) perpetually united in Yesod.”
"The lower or passionate nature (Ida, Yesod, the genitalia) is always striving to imitate the actions of the higher nature (Pingala, Daath, brain and throat), with this difference, that (the trinity in Daath) which is spiritual and pure changes (in the sexual union of Yesod) into the carnal and impure. The higher nature takes its origin from the right side but the lower nature from the left side, of the sephirotic tree of life (or spinal medulla; during sexual union) the left (Ida) is embodied in the female (glory of the Shekinah) and becomes unified in it, as it is written:
שמאלו תחת לראשי וימינו תחבקני
"His left (ו Vav, Ida) is under (תחת - buttocks) to my head, and his right (ו Vav, Pingala), she-is-embracing-me." - Song of Solomon 2: 6" - Zohar
Yesod is precisely the ninth sphere or Sephirah. Yesod relates to sex. Daath is in the throat and Yesod in the sexual organs. In other words, when he stated that they are perpetually united in the initiate that knows the path, he has to unite sexually with his wife, or the wife with her husband, in order to perform the mystery of Daath, because that mystery is directly related to the stone of Yesod and we are going to see how.
"Some Kabbalistic authors suppose that Daath, the Sephirah that gives knowledge or sapience, comes from the fusion of the masculine Cosmic Christ, Chokmah, with Binah and assume that Binah is exclusively feminine. Such an affirmation is purely false, because the Holy Spirit is really masculine, and when he unfolds himself into the Divine Mother, the perfect couple is formed."
Christianity call that couple, the white dove impregnating Mary. Mary herself represents Malkuth, our physicality, and the Holy Spirit is Binah, above.
“In the temple of serpents named the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, (יהוה אלהים) the Holy Spirit was worshiped as follows: before sunrise, a priest dressed in a robe and cloak of black, white, and red colors sprinkled a seashell-powder into red fiery embers; the powder was made with white, black, and red seashells. The white represents the pure Spirit, the black symbolizes the falling of the Spirit into matter, and the red is the fire of the Holy Spirit, through which we return to the whiteness of the pure Spirit. In the moments when the smoke offering was rising up to heaven, the priest was praying for life, thus the plants bloomed, because the Holy Spirit is the sexual fire of the universe. This rite was performed in the Temple of Quetzalcoatl before sunrise, because the Holy Spirit is the light maker. The priest vocalized the mantras IN EN. The prophet Jonah (יונה) also performed the rite of the Holy Spirit, exactly in the same way as the Aztecs, and he used for this purpose the same vestures and the same seashell-powder. He also vocalized the mantra IN EN as he sprinkled the incense into the fire.” - Samael Aun Weor
All us in this day and age know, according to tradition and sadly vulgarized, the famous Santa Claus, which represents the Ancient of Days, who is the same Old Saturn. His vesture is red, which represents the fire of the Holy Spirit; the white the pure Spirit; and his black boots symbolize the falling of the Spirit into matter, which is when that creative fire penetrates into our genitalia. That is the meaning of Santa Claus. Some people do not believe in Santa Claus, because they don't know that he represents the sexual force, simply put. This is why, when he (יהוה אלהים-Binah) comes, he gives gifts to the children of the Shekinah, meaning, to initiates. Remember what Jesus said:
“Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” - Matthew 18: 3
Yes, we have to become as little children in order to be swallowed by Saturn (the Paranirvana), that is, by the eagle (the Holy Spirit). As you see the mystery there in that picture. They are the two polarities of Binah, which are in Daath.
"But we have to take into account that even while she (the Divine Mother) is the spouse of the Third Logos (the Holy Spirit), within the Third Logos is the Second Logos and also the First Logos, because in the end, the Logos is the undividable, unitotal, and integral triune. A lot of subtleness is needed in order to understand this, a lot of refinement, synthesism, and intuition."
Within Binah (the Holy Spirit) is Chokmah and Kether; this is what is called the Holy Trinity, meaning three brains in one body. So, Binah is divided into two in Yesod, the genitalia. Yes, it is in Yesod where the male-female division of the genders occurs. Yet, in Daath, the throat, the Divine Mother is the feminine aspect of Binah, and our Divine Father is the masculine aspect of Binah; obviously, the two of them have the Trinity within themselves. So, as the division of genders occurs here in Yesod, likewise, the division of Binah occurs up there in Daath, in the throat. Behold, the throat is feminine, the throat is a uterus where the word is gestated. The word, the Logos, is formed in Daath, in the throat, but for that we need the masculine force of the brain in order to do it. So the Holy Spirit is masculine and feminine at the same time.
"In the Cubic Stone of Yesod, in the Ninth Sphere, Tantric knowledge, the Tantric initiation comes. The development of the serpent along the dorsal spine is possible by means of the Tantras." - Samael Aun Weor
OK, so let us see above this cubic stone of Yesod, which is related with Daath as you see. Daath is in the throat, but look, it is exactly where the medulla joins with the brain, and the brain is related with the three primary forces: Kether-Chokmah-Binah or Father- Son-Holy Spirit. And this is how we have to visualize Daath.
The Saturnian serpent does not eat anything filthy. Thus, first we have to develop the fiery (Seraph שרף) serpent and in order to do that we have to clean our sex, heart and head of all impurities. This is why it is stated:
"Central nervous system (which is shown there in the graphic) is the throne of God, the throne of the Father".
So, we understand that our head, the brain, contains the three primary forces. The son of the three primary forces is called Chesed, who is our Innermost that utilizes the central nervous system as his throne. By studying the three brains in the Tree of Life, then we understand why the Innermost is related with the spinal column and the brain, as well as the Three Logoi, Father-Son-Holy Spirit. This is how we have to see our Father, our God. So when you walk, remember that your central nervous system is a throne of God; is God seated there? Who is seated? Your mind, your sinful mind? That is why it is said that the devil is taking the seat of God in us. Instead of God sitting on the throne, it is a devil, Satan, who personifies our anger, pride, vanity, laziness, gluttony, lust, etc. So let us delve further into this and read:
"The Cubic Stone of Yesod, situated in the creative organs, is certainly that metallic soul which is the result of sexual transmutations. We can call this metallic soul the Mercury of Secret Philosophy, or, when speaking with simpler language, creative energy. This energy in itself is allegorized or symbolized by the Shedd (שד), the Devil." - Samael Aun Weor
If you are afraid of the Devil that means that you are afraid of yourself. There are as many devils on the Earth as people. Everyone carries his own devil, egotistically speaking. How do you say devil in Hebrew? Shaddai (שדי). If you put these three Hebrew letters into a translator, from Hebrew to English "What is Shaddai?", it will say, “devil, demon, goblin,” and all of those negative things that people think of. The name Shaddai is written on the front door of any house of those who follow Judaism. Before entering and when they leave, the kiss the sign. Why? Because it is Yesod. The entrance of any house is the sexual organ. When Adam “knew” (Daath, knowledge) Eve he entered through the doors of sex into Eve, and through the doors of sex Eve knew Adam. In this way, they knew each other, and they discovered that they were naked.
It is obvious that the devil, Shaddai (שדי), made them unite sexually, but if you whitewash your devil and transform it into Lucifer, then it is no longer Shaddai (שדי), but El Shaddai (אל שדי). El means God. El Shaddai (אל שדי) is precisely the entity that we all want to develop, not Shaddai (שדי); everybody already has Shaddai (שדי) and are enjoying their Shaddai (שדי) in this day and age, through sexual freedom: adultery, fornication, prostitution, homosexuality, etc. All of them are Shadim שדים, we will say, devils.
Only those that transmute their sexual energy, only those who are chaste, develop El Shaddai (אל שדי). It is written:
“And when Abram was  ninety and nine years old [9 + 9 = 18; 1 + 8 = 9 – Yesod-Sex], יהוה appeared to Abram אברם, and said unto him, ‘I am the Almighty God [אני אל שדי, Ani El Shaddai]; walk before me, and be thou perfect.’” Genesis 17: 1
The Ninth Sphere is repeated twice in the number ninety and nine [9 + 9 = 18; 1 + 8 = 9 – Yesod-Sex]. This leaves much material for reflection: the first nine is positive and the second nine is negative. [9 + 9 = 18] the Eighteenth Arcanum manifests the fatal or negative aspect of the second nine. Such a negative aspect is found in the fornicators, namely, those who enjoy the bestial orgasm, meaning, the two spheres of hell, Lilith and Nahemah.
"When we say that we must work with the Devil (Shaddai שדי), this is in order to transform it into Hillel El Shadai (הילל אל שדי).” - Samael Aun Weor
This word Hillel הילל is translated in Isaiah 14: 12, as Lucifer. But Lucifer is Latin, a name which means, “light bearer.” Thus, if you want to carry the light of your sexual force of the Holy Spirit, you have to be Hillel El Shaddai (הילל - אל שדי). Then the Master said:
"We are clearly referring to the labor in the Great Work. It becomes interesting that precisely here in the Cubic Stone of Yesod is where Shiva and Shakti, Osiris and Isis, are sexually united, and here is precisely where the Tantric knowledge is found. The attainment of the intimate realization of the Being is not possible without it (without Shaddai)." - Samael Aun Weor
“And the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the fiends (השדה) which Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים had made.” - Genesis 3: 1
So, Shaddai שדי came sneakily on the seventh day—the Saturn day, the Shabbat, the Sabbath—to initiate Adam and Eve, because in the beginning you have to confront your own Shedd שד (devil), in order to enter into initiation. It is not that you are going to confront somebody else: you must confront yourself. That part of you that you have to confront is called the Guardian of the Threshold. That threshold, that gate is precisely sex. If you defeat that guardian, it means that you defeated the שד Shedd, the devil, and want to walk on the path before אל El (Chesed-Abraham), and then you enter into the path. But who opens the door for you? It is the שד Shedd, your Devil. The Devil, Shaddai שדי, has the keys, but that Devil is not outside, he is within you; Shaddai שדי represents your sexual force. He is our best fiend, if we take advantage of him. Through defeating Shaddai שדי's temptations, we carry the light of הילל Hillel – Lucifer, to heaven; this is how the Ruach Elohim (Spirit of God) make light within us, that light is Lucifer.
“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever....
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.” - Daniel 12: 3, 7-10
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” - Mark 13: 32
"One needs to descend to the Ninth Sphere, which has two representations."
We are talking about Yesod. The first representation is the Cubic Stone of Yesod. You have to know how to transmute the sexual energy, because initiation starts there.
Everybody talks about initiation and how to be a great initiate, but if you are fornicating, if you are ejaculating the ens seminis, you are not an initiate, you are just wasting your time. After you work in chastity, you have to confront your own demons, your own devils, your own defects, errors, vices, and that is the second aspect of the path: the nine circles, the nine atomic infernos or what in this day and age is called the Enneagram in Yetzirah, where the initiate must descend. What is this Enneagram? It is the nine spheres above Malkuth, related with the world of formation; you have to be formed in the second day of Genesis (second chapter of Genesis, which is the seventh day). It is stated:
"And Jehovah Elohim formed (that world formed is Yetzirah) Adam from the dust of the Earth; and Adam became a living soul."
That formation takes nine steps in the world of Yetzirah. This is precisely the nine circles, different times.
Let me read the following in order to comprehend this, because in the Bible we read:
"At the time of the end, before thy commence, the saints will be selected".
The saints will be selected, and:
"after time, and times and a half of the time, the end will come"
We read this in Daniel. We read that also in the Book of Revelation, when the writer says that everything will be fulfilled at the time, times and a half of the time. When we read that, we see that it is talking about Saturn here, which is Kronos, the Holy Spirit, time, initiatically speaking. What is time? In order to understand that we have to go into the Bible. In the Bible (Genesis 1:14) we read:
Elohim (אלהים): Aleph 1 + Lamed 30 + Hei 5 + Iod 10 + Mem-Final 40 = 86, 8+6 = 14, 1+4 = 5, the Pentalpha, rules the day
"And Elohim said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for [Meowdim מועדים, “times”], and for days, and years. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And Elohim made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day." Genesis 1: 14-16
That is the fourth day. What is the firmament of heaven? It is in the top of the head. When we talk about firmament, it is spinal medulla, because in the second day it is written:
"Let us make a firmament between the superior waters and the inferior waters".
The superior waters are the cerebral-spinal fluids, and the inferior waters are the sexual waters, the semen in Yesod, sex. So between the inferior and the superior waters, we have the medulla, which is the womb where we have to create the firmament. That firmament is created when the light of the Saturnian serpent rises within the medulla. Then, in the fourth day, it is written:
"Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And Elohim made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also...." - Genesis 1: 14-16
“Let there be lights in the firmament” what firmament? The firmament that we have already awakened in our spinal medulla. Those lights are the luni-solar forces that we have to develop in the fourth initiation of the Major Mysteries that will be for us for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.
L’Aimah (לאימה-Mother): Lamed 30 + Aleph 1 + Iod 10 + Mem 40 + Hei 5 = 86, 8+6 = 14, 1+4 = 5, L'Aimah, the Pentalpha, rules the night
For instance, it is stated that the moon is the lesser light and the sun is the greater light. Genesis states, “the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night” these lights relate to the creation of two forces: the sun above and the moon below. Yesod is ruled by the moon, and Tiphereth is ruled by the sun, your heart. Tiphereth is your heart, and Yesod is your sex; “he made the stars also” in the firmament, the seven stars, the seven churches or chakras relate to our spinal medulla and also above in our head.
Now, listen to these words, Meowd, Meowdim מועד מועדים. L’Meowdim למועדים means, “for times,” this is how it is written in Hebrew. “Time” is Meowd מועד. In Hebrew when you ask "How are you?" They answer "Tob Meowd טוב מועד," meaning, “my time is good.”In other words, “what I am experiencing now in this moment is very good טוב מאד Tob Meod.”
The word Meowd מועד is always related with festivals, holy days, seasons, etc; thus, Meowd מועד, Meowdim מועדים, time/times, are used in order to measure initiations. That is why the Shabbath is Meowd מועד, a festival. There are as many Meowdim מועדים (festivals) in Judaism as there are in Paganism. Regardless, all of them are Meowdim מועדים (festivals) that we have to understand and comprehend.
Meowdim מועדים (festivals) are related with Saturn, because Meowd מועד is time Kronos-Saturn; those festivals are related to initiations in the internal worlds. This is why in the Book of Daniel it is written:
"And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time [Meowd מועד], times [Meowdim מועדים], and an half." - Daniel 12: 7
And in the Book of Revelation, which is written in Greek states:
"And to the woman (the Saturnian serpent) were given two wings of a great eagle (remember that the eagle represents Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn), that she might fly into (Tiphereth) the wilderness, into her place (the heart), where she is nourished for a time [Kronos χρόνος in Greek; Meowd מועד in Hebrew], and times (Meowdim מועדים), and half a (Meowd מועד) time, from the face of the (tempting) serpent." - Revelation 12: 14
Master Samael Aun Weor, after unveiling 90 chapters, and part of the 91st chapter of the book Pistis Sophia, wrote the following:
"We, Samael Aun Weor, tell ye, in the name of the First Mystery of Pistis Sophia and the Savior of the world, that I will unveil the remaining part of the Gnostic Bible in the half of the half of the time."
Mysterious words, cryptic words that when you read them, make you ask, "What is this “half of the half of the time?” If you are a serious students of Kabbalah and Alchemy, you know what you are reading, but when lay people read that statement, they describe or interpret that sentence in the wrong way.
Listen: as you see, Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים—Saturn-Binah-Kronos—is the lord of time, the one that puts the steps and rules, in creation. We always talk about the Three Mountains: the First Mountain is the mountain of initiation, it is the time in which you have to work with your sexual forces, you have to create, you have to "be born again," as Jesus said to Nicodemus. In order to be born again you need time. When we say that you need time, we mean that you need Saturn, you need Kronos and Rhea, because between them, united in Yesod, they will create within you the astral body, the mental body, the causal body. That is done through time, initiations. And, if you take the direct path for your self-realization, then the Lord Christ descends into you, thanks to Saturn and Rhea, because the Christ, the savior, that would be born within you is the Son of the Holy Spirit, meaning, the white dove and Mary or Saturn and Rhea.
So, the Holy Spirit that has to bring down the Savior in the Venustic Initiation for you, in Tiphereth, through the middle pillar, is always Saturn. Tiphereth is in the middle of the Tree of Life, or in other words, Tiphereth is found at the half of the middle column; Tiphereth is at the half of the half of the First Mountain, the “time.” Thus, when the Lord descends within you at the half of the time (Tiphereth), he develops the serpents of light. Those serpents of light are the initiations of Venus, of Love, higher aspects of initiations; this is done in the First Mountain. So, the First Mountain is “time,” and that time relates to the serpents of fire and serpents of light.
Now, when you reach the end, the top, the summit of the mountain of initiation, then the “times” open before you, because you enter into the world of Yetzirah, where there are different times in each Sephirah. In the world of formation you have to form yourself: the Saturnian serpent has to kill you and swallow you in different levels. That is the aspect of the Enneagram; different “times.”
Master Samael described those times (Meowdim מועדים) in the Second Mountain in his book, The Three Mountains. In the Second Mountain you gain access to the Heaven of the Moon, to the Heaven of Mercury, to the Heaven of Venus, to the Heaven of Mars, to the Heaven of the Sun, to the Heaven of Jupiter, and to the Heaven of Saturn-Binah; here you reach the seven heavens. From there you go into the Heavens of Uranos and Neptune, because there are nine heavens in the world of Yetzirah that the initiate has to develop. Remember these heavens of Yetzirah are called “times” (Meowdim מועדים) esoterically speaking, and they are governed by Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn, Binah.
So when the initiate develops “time” and “times” the initiate is ready. Ready for what? Ready for the “half of the time.” What is the half of the time? If time is the first mountain of initiation, the half of that mountain is the half of the time, in other words, the 8 serpents of light are the half. Right? Because the third aspect of this transformation that the initiate is realizing or performing is to qualify the 8 initiations of light, what we call the 8 Venustic Initiations. The eight years of transformation relate to Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn, Binah; the Saturnian serpent swallows every single body of the initiate. And, when she finishes her feast with the initiate, when the initiate is finally pure, clean, then in the eighth qualification, Shabbatai שבתאי, Saturn, Binah, the eagle comes, and swallows the serpent. Thus, this is how, after the “half of the time,” the initiate is transformed into a feathered serpent.
So, the “half of the time” relates to the 8 Venustic initiations of Tiphereth, and to the qualifications of those 8 initiations of light. It is easy to see: time, times and the half of the time are the culmination of what we call "resurrection," esoterically speaking. Of course, you can read many books in order to learn more about this, because here I am talking in synthesis, in order for us to comprehend the path that we are experiencing here.
So, Yesod is of course what we call the first chamber, because it is related with the ninth Sephirah of the Tree of Life. When one is single, one enters into the nine layers of the Earth, because the nine layers of the Earth relate to Yesod. You want to know how evil you are? You want to know what are those elements that you must fight against? How do you see this? Well, you have to enter into the probationary path, which are the nine initiations of minor mysteries, in which the initiate penetrates into his own subconsciousness, unconsciousness, infraconsciousness, and faces one after the other until reaching the center of the Earth.
This descent is not physical; that is why we show the entrance there. When Orpheus went to look for Eurydice, his wife—who, by the way ,was killed by a serpent—he descends into hell.
He faced the guardian, and said: "Please, open the door for me. I want to gain my soul, I lost it," and talks with Hades, Pluto, in order to enter into the underworld. That entrance into the nine interior layers is precisely what we call the nine initiations of the minor mysteries. We need to know what we have to fight against in order to gain our soul.
At the higher level, it is an Enneagram, when you literally go down again into those nine layers and disintegrate your defects and vices, in order to gain access to heaven. The lyre of Orpheus is the symbol of the spinal column of course; it has seven notes there. You perform your work in the ninth sphere, in your spinal column; this is how you enter into hell. And as the Master says:
"This is the great ordeal for the supreme dignity of the Hierophant. Hermes [Orpheus], Buddha, Jesus Christ, Zoroaster, Dante, and many other great initiates had to pass this maximum ordeal, the descent to the Ninth Sphere" – Samael aun Weor
One begins in Limbo and continues downwards, until reaching the center, the ninth sphere. In the past, when the initiate was performing that, his or her consciousness was awakened, and he or she would reached the ninth sphere; then, the master was calling him and saying: "OK, now you are awake, now you know against what you have to fight. We are now in the center here." In the Inferno, Dante asks his Master Virgilius: "Is it Lucifer?" Yes, it is Lucifer. That Lucifer is Shaddai. You have to climb on the ribs of Lucifer in order to go up. In other words, you have to perform the sexual act, you have to marry. You have been in celibacy for many years, now you have to marry. If you don't perform the sexual act, how you are going to defeat Lucifer? Lucifer is defeated in his own field, and the field of Lucifer is sex. You have to be chaste: go into the ninth sphere, but don't eat the fruit. That is the mystery. But everybody that goes into the ninth sphere, they eat the fruit, and not only one fruit, but they swallow the whole apple tree. That is precisely the problem. Remember, that is the first step. You have to face the mysteries of the first chamber in order to enter into the second chamber, which is Tiphereth. What is Tiphereth? The Master says:
"Essentially, the region of religious mysticism is in the causal world or world of conscious will. The Gnostic who learns how to combine meditation with prayer can unquestionably make objective and cognizant contact with the gods of nature. The causal world is the sphere of the masters, is the eternal temple in heaven that some hand has built; it is the greatest abode of the esoteric fraternity. The Rabbinical Hebrew Kabbalists know that the mantra of the causal world has been, is, and will always be: Aloah Va Daath. Meditating on those words is equivalent to knocking on the doors of the marvelous great temple." - Secret Doctrine of Anahuac by Samael Aun Weor
So the heart, the superior emotional center, relates to Tiphereth, the region of religious mysticism. This is why, those Hasnamussen who pronounce themselves against rituals, pronounce themselves against the heart; they are lunatic ignoramuses, since the causal world Tiphereth relates to the heart. Religious mysticism in the lower levels relates to Hod; without the fires of the heart nobody advances to Mastery. To pronounce ourselves against rituals, is to pronounce ourselves against the fires of the heart. Remember, it is written:
“The Kundalini develops, evolves, and progresses according to the merits of the heart.”
“The Kundalini rises very slowly in accordance with the merits of the heart.”
“The development of the Kundalini is controlled by the merits of the heart.” - Samael Aun Weor
Thus, in order for the Saturnian serpent to rise in our spinal column, we need merits, the merits of our heart. If we don’t have good merits, the bronze serpent doesn't rise. The bronze serpent is not mechanical, automatic, as many people think. They think that just by doing certain technical exercises the Kundalini is going to go to the head. No! The Kundalini develops very slow; if we commit mistakes with our heart, it does not go up.
In this day and age, among Gnostics, many ignoramuses commit those mistakes, they pronounce themselves against the second chamber, against Hod, against Tiphereth, against the Kingdom of Chokmah, that is the Second Logos of any of the three triangles of the Tree of Life.
Once you enter into this path, you have to follow the three chambers, that is what we always say, but understand that these three chambers are within you. Study the Tree of Life and see the three chambers in the middle pillar: Yesod is the entrance, the door that opens, when you have to confront the Shedd, the Devil, which is within you; it is the first chamber. Then you enter into the second chamber, which is the heart. In order to enter there, you have to fight a lot. The lower level of the second chamber is Hod; you need to feed the heart with the rituals, the forces of the Eucharist, in order to keep ahead, because in every triangle you find always the three brains and that is always synthesized in the third factor. In order to teach, in order to give knowledge, you have to do it through your mouth, through your Daath, through your throat, the third chamber.
Thus, we have to walk through the three chambers. People are very preoccupied with being in this or that chamber of spiritual schools in the physical world; it doesn't matter if somebody enters into the third chamber in the physical world, if that person is not in a third chamber internally speaking, individually speaking.
Daath is the third chamber that unites the three primary forces, the Holy Trinity, and by teaching, by sacrificing yourself for humanity, is how you see that in three chambers. Of course, to belong to the third chamber here in the physical world is good, but it is better to belong internally, individually speaking, within you, in order for you to see how the middle path is related with a three chambers. If you exclude any chamber of the middle path then you are not walking on the middle path, you are walkingthe path that you know where it leads... See what Jesus says in the Book of Acts, after resurrection:
"When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times [Meowdim מועדים] or the seasons, which the Father [Kronos-Saturn-Binah-Jehovah Elohim] hath put in his own power."
You want to know the “times”? Work in yourself, and then you will know the times, and decide for the time with humanity too, because this humanity will fulfill the times too, but mechanically. As we read in the Gnostic doctrine:
"Because you are my nation. My nation is made up of those capable of awakening and raising inside each one the rhythm of their idiosyncrasy. Let the laws be fulfilled and let this be within the ritual of beauty and good. These are the rituals of the elements (earth, water, air, and fire - those are the elements, the ordeals that we have to receive) and the festivals [Meowdim מועדים] of the Temples."
Those times are related with the temples. Remember that it is written that when you overcome some ordeals or you receive certain initiations, you are received in the temples with festivities. Those festivities are called Meowdim מועדים; if it is just one festivity it called Meowd; and this is what Daniel says: "Meowd, Meowdim and the half of a Meowd" or: time, times, and a half of the time. This is how we have to understand that. Master Samael Aun Weor says:
"I will unveil the rest of Pistis Sophia at the half of the half of the time.”
What is the half of the half of the time? What is the time? The first mountain. What is the half of that time? The serpents of fire. And what is that half of the half? It is Tiphereth; meaning that if you reach Tiphereth, which is the half of the half of the time, and you take direct path, you will receive the incarnation of Christ, then the rest of the Gnostic Bible will be unveiled within you. It will not be unveiled outside of you, because when people read what is unveiled in the Pistis Sofia, they say: "Oh, my God! What is this? I don't understand. Too much Kabbalah!" If they do not understand the half of the unveiling, why would they understand the rest?
But if they understand that to unveil the rest is to be at the half of the half of the time, when you enter into the direct path, then the light is developing in you, and you don't need anybody to unveil for you. When the light is within you, you need only put your eyes and read it spiritually, and you will understand. For such a person, the light, which is Christ, is unveiling that for them. Is that not the better way? Or is it better to read half a book that you don't understand, only to read the rest that you will not understand either? We can’t remain ignorant: we have to be awaken in order to see the path. This is why about Kronos-Time, Solomon the wise said:
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
What profit has the one that works in that wherein he labours? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.
I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
I know that, whatsoever God does, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before him.
That which hath been is now; and that which is to be has already been; and God requires that which is past. And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
Though a sinner commits crimes a hundred times, and lives long, yet surely I know that it will be better with those who fear God, who are reverent before him.” - Ecclesiastes 3: 1-7; 8:12
Audience: So in order to conquer Saturn, which means to conquer death, to conquer time, you first have to be swallowed by Saturn. How is it that Zeus conquered Saturn without being swallowed by Saturn?
Instructor: Well, Rhea, Mother Earth, Malkuth, kept Zeus (Jesus, the savior) hidden in (Egypt) a cave on Mount Ida, Crete, so that through the Venustic Initiations, Zeus-Jupiter, can conquer Saturn. This means not to be swallowed by the Paranirvana, as the other five gods—which represent the solar bodies; namely, vital, astral, mental, causal and buddhic—were swallowed.
So, Rhea gave Saturn the stone of Yesod, instead of Zeus-Jupiter, who choose the straight path instead of the spiral. Thus, by rasing the serpents of light, this is how Jupiter overcomes Kronos-Saturn, his father, and goes to the Theomertmalogos, the Ain Soph Aur, the Solar Absolute. This means that Saturn has to swallow the stone in another octave in order to become a very superior God. In order for Saturn-Binah to swallow the stone of Yesod, he has to work with the sexual forces of Chokmah-Uranous. Remember that Zeus was raised by his grandmother, Gaia. In short, this is the mystery of Uranous, Saturn, Jupiter, our Inner Being.
Everything that you read in mythology has a mystery that you have to know how to interpret. It is not that literally Saturn was swallowing a big rock; in order for Saturn to swallow the stone you have to transmute the sexual force of your stone, your gonads, and send those forces up to the brain, to the Holy Spirit; Saturn-Binah knows what he is doing. Thus, this is the mystery of our Being that we have and should study.
Audience: So you spoke about Orpheus and going down to Hades to free his wife. Is that the same symbol of his wife or soul within the nine layers of Malkuth, as the maiden Xquic in the Mayan Bible, the Popol Vuh?
Instructor: Exactly, the maiden Xquic in the Popol Vuh, is the same mystery. The daughter of the Lord Cuchumaquic, the maiden Xquic, was impregnated by Hun-Hunahpu, and she gave birth to Hunahpú and Xbalanqué, etc... The daughter symbolizes the soul within each one of us, our soul who is trapped in hell. What hell? The hell that we created inside of us. That soul needs to be liberated, needs to be freed, and for that we have to kill all the unloyal ones, the heathen.
Understand, this is precisely something internal. It is not outside: the enemies are not outside, they are within you. If you know how to interpret the doctrine of the secret books, you understand then the fights of the Popol Vuh, the fights that you find in the Bible, and in mythology, and the Koran. They always say, kill the unloyal ones, the unbelievers, the heathen, but those heathen are not outside of us, they are inside. This is the fight we must perform in order to develop what we have to develop, and to rescue the soul, because our soul is trapped within seven demons: lust, anger, pride, vanity, laziness, gluttony, envy.
Audience: So, about the Calabash Tree in the Popol Vuh. Is that the Tree of Good and Evil?
Instructor: Yes, of course. In the Popol Vuh, we read that the head of Hun-Hunahpu was taken from his body and fastened in the branches of the Calabash Tree where it was confused with the fruit of the tree. The head relates to the Holy Trinity, the three primary forces in the Tree of Good and Evil. Because that tree is Daath, the head spits and impregnates the girl. That spitting is the symbol of secret Saliva or secret ointment that rises from the sex to your throat through alchemy.
Audience: Is that the same thing that you were talking about someone who has reached that stage in their own saliva? Is this saliva become changed some way?
Instructor: Well, when somebody reaches their higher level of initiation, his saliva, meaning, his knowledge heals. It is written:
“And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.” - John 9: 1-7
Such is the power of the saliva of Daath.
The former biblical verses are of course an alchemical statement, but sometimes a Master can do that with their saliva, because they are very chaste. Saliva has power, thus, they can heal you physically. But that is not the important point of this matter. I don't give too much importance to the healing of the physical body in relation with the teachings of the Bible and all of those miracles, because in the end all those people that were healed died, so what is the point? If we heal ourselves psychologically and we die physically, we don't lose that psychological healing. The transformation or alchemical work of the Lord Christ within you is something esoteric. If you develop that, of course, you triumph. But don't read literally, because people are always so identified with their physicality: "Oh, I want this initiate to do a miracle physically on me!" So what? You get healed and in the end you will die, so what is the point? Do the healing in your consciousness in your soul, then you will see the benefit. This is why you have to read the Bible alchemically, esoterically in order to understand.
Why are we now celebrating the Saturnalia? We are in Capricorn, house of Saturn; it is Saturday, the day of Saturn. So Saturn, the Lord of Death, always invites us to die psychologically.
Audience: In relation to the initiations that we spoke about regarding Christ, what is the relationship with stigmata?
Instructor: The stigmata? That is a process of the half of the time. You see? Time, times, and the half of the time. The stigmata appears at the half of the time. There are many people that have a stigmata there and they appear in TV or in the internet, because somehow they have wounds in their hands and feet, and also in their side. That appears there for certain reason, but the real stigmata is in the third year of the eight years of the half of the time, when the initiate has to make those stigmata in the astral body. And for that, the initiate at that time, which is the half of the time, he or she has to perform the sexual act without desire.
How is she or he is going to perform sexual act without desire? Don't worry, you are not at that level yet. You have desire and in order to perform the sexual act, you need desire, but initiates that are at that level have no desire at all. They perform the sexual act in a very static manner, in ecstasy; they are united, but in rapture. They don't even move. Can you do that? No! So don't talk about that. There is another question there?
Audience: A lot of has been written about Saturnalia in a negative way. If we google Saturnalia, they show us, rites related to paganism, drunken festivals, and things like that. So is there a duality or degeneration related to this?
Instructor: Unfortunately, from the sublime to the ridiculous is only one step, and this is axiomatic. Saturnalia is Saturday, today. Sabbath is a holy day, we respect it. It is Shabbath, the holy day, when you know the mysteries. But, also you find the witches' Sabbath; they perform Bacchanalia and they perform rituals, which are related with lust. Those witches and warlocks have their rituals too, but they are completely the opposite of the Holy Sabbath. Those rituals are found on the internet, and in many parts of the world where they teach black magic. Nowadays, peoples associate the Sabbath with their awful Saturnalia, with their degeneration, because they are degenerate.
Usually, we associate festivities with what we carry within. If one is not an initiate, how is one going to perform those festivities like Christmas? Christmas is a Holy Saturnalia celebration that all Christians celebrate. But if you go house to house, what do you find those Christians doing at that time? They are drunk, very drunk, and sometimes smoking marijuana, and this is how they celebrate Christmas. Is that a holy Saturnalia? No! This is not Christmas, this is the opposite of it! It is a demonic Saturnalia.
So unfortunately, because we are demons, we have awfully transformed all festivities or Meowdim into demonic Bacchanalias. Now that we are tired of this demonic celebrations, let us go into the other extreme, to the sublime and celebrate that, and study what is that in relation with a positive aspect, because we are tired of the negative aspect.
When we go outside on Friday nights, evening of Saturdays, people are celebrating, but do you know what are they celebrating? It is not a holy Sabbath. If we are accustomed to that, reflect, since we have also respect and understand that people do it, because they don't know. But now you know, and if you do it, it is your business; thus, when Saturn comes, when the seventh seal comes, you won't have excuses. Then, he will says: "But you know, you heard the lectures," and thus, he will cut your head with his scythe.
Audience: So you mentioned that the second mountain was the work of the Enneagram in the world of Yetzirah.
Instructor: In different times.
Audience: Yes, the different times. Do you work with other stations, where you work with those spheres in the other three worlds, in Assiah, in Briah, and Atziluth? Is there are work with Enneagram in Briah for instance?
Instructor: No. There is only one work with the Enneagram, in the second mountain in the world of Yetzirah. This is the only Enneagram that is there, because Ennea (Aenneas) means nine; that name comes from the number nine. Enneagram (nine units of consciousness). Thus, as Orpheus, he, Aeneas goes down into the Underworld to seek the spirit of his father. So the Enneagram is the descent into hell, your own hell, your own subconsciousness in order to clean it, to purify it; that is the Enneagram.
Of course, in this day and age you find books written about the Enneagram, and people enjoy doing certain practices with certain things and they think that they are practicing the Enneagram, but that is very subjective, it is not initiatic. Maybe it is good, but we are not concerned about that.
Audience: So my problem with that is why is that only that happening in the world of Yetzirah, but why is it specifically Yetzirah?
“And יהוה אלהים formed (Yetzirah יצרה) man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” - Genesis 2: 7
Yetzirah is in relation with “times.” First you perform “time,” and then “times,” because the world of Yetzirah are different times, different worlds; the dust of the Moon, the dust of the Mercury, the dust of the Venus, the dust of the Sun, the dust of the Mars, the dust of the Jupiter, the dust of the Saturn, the dust of the Uranous, and the dust of the Neptune. Those are the nine levels of the ground (HaAdamah האדמה), the Enneagram.
You have to enter in every heaven of Yetzirah consciously, not theoretically or through fantasy; you have to experience each one of them, as we are talking here. That is the Enneagram, it is different “times,” before reaching resurrection, which is related with Saturn, because Saturn is Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים, who has to swallow you, if you culminate “times.”
Thus, Saturn makes his feast with you if you reach that level, in the last year of the half of the time. That is the last thing, because Saturn doesn't eat filthy things; if he sees that you are still filthy or something negative, inhuman is within you, he says: "Sorry, I will not swallow you. Keep meditating and eliminate that".
Then, when you are really like a baby, like a child, purified like a Seraphim, and then Saturn say: "Oh, I will swallow the Seraphim." And then you become a feathered serpent, an Elohim, a great initiate. So, "Good Luck."
