This is a transcription of the audio lecture Twenty two Arcana of Tarot and Kabbalah 16 Arcanum 16 Fragility originally given live on Gnostic Radio, which you can download for free.
The Tower that is collapsing: this is the Arcanum that is also called the Tower of Babel. We are arriving at the point in which we have to explain in detail about the fall of humanity, in order to understand this Arcanum, related with the letter AYIN, which is related with the eyes, with the divine sight, with that divine sight related with all the powers of the human being. When we talk about the divine sight, we have to understand that this is not only related with the power of clairvoyance. Divine sight is that power that allows us to see in a broad way all of that which is in relation with our inner Being. We will say it is the power of understanding or knowing our own particular Being, because the only reason, the only objective, the only goal of creation is for the Being to know Himself. This is why creation exists.
In the universe, there are many levels attained in relation to the knowledge of oneself. The knowledge of oneself is the knowledge of the Being, which is an army of children, an army that in the Hebrew language and in Kabbalah is called Elohim Sabaoth. This is how Kabbalah explains the multiplicity of the unity. These children, or parts of the Being, have different attributes and duties that they have to perform, powers that have to be developed, and all of them coincide with one another.
When somebody acquires the development of all the powers of his inner Being, his own consciousness, this person has developed a diamond soul (vajrasattva). The diamond soul is the consciousness that is developed by experience in creation, with experience in the universe. So the Being comes to know Himself by developing that soul, and in that development He acquires divine sight. That divine sight is represented by the letter AYIN, and is the way in which we can see God, or the way in which we can understand or comprehend our own particular Monad, in relation with the universe. The only objective reason, the goal of creation, is to acquire that.
In the development of this objective reasoning there are six degrees, and these are related only with the Direct Path.
The Man of Zohar
While we rise in Initiations, degrees of development through the Tree of Life, we enter into the different worlds that are described in Kabbalah by the Four Worlds, starting at the bottom sphere, which is Assiah (Malkuth). Then the first triangle from the bottom to the top is related to the World of Yetzirah. The second triangle from the bottom up is related to the World of Briah, and the topmost triangle is related to the World of Atziluth.
These four worlds are illustrated in the symbol of the man of the Zohar: Adam Kadmon, the man of the Zohar who has his feet on the earth. One foot is on land, and the other is in the sea.
Then we find that the solar system is in relation with the world of Yetzirah, having the Sun, the center of the solar system, in his sexual organs, and all of the planets rotating around the Sun.
Above that we have the Zodiac, which is related with the galaxy, in which the person or the consciousness of the initiate when reaching the level of Briah on top of the heart, in relation with the chest, is developing all the powers related with the world of the microcosmos, related with the galaxy.
Above that we have the head, which is related with Atziluth. This head is called Arik Ampin, the vast countenance, which is related with the Infinite. The infinite is related with many galaxies, the knowledge of many galaxies, while the microcosmos, which is below the infinite, below the head of this man of the Zohar (Adam Kadmon), is related with many galaxies. In this case, our galaxy, the Milky Way, is called a microcosm, related with the world of Briah.
Down below, the solar system (Deuterocosmos) is related with the world of Yetzirah.
And in the very bottom, we find the Earth (Assiah / Malkuth), which is the Mesocosmos.
Beyond the head of Atziluth, beyond the head of Adam Kadmon, we find the first cosmos, which is the Ain Soph Aur, which is called the Protocosmos. Here we find an immortal type of matter, which is beyond the universe.
Beneath the feet of Adam Kadmon we find Klipoth, which is related with the inferior nine layers, which Dante Alighieri described very well in his Divine Comedy.
So this is how we have to visualize the universe, as a symbol, because we have to understand and comprehend that the man of the Zohar that we are describing here is an imaginary symbol. It would be impossible to find a creature like that, gigantic, in any part of the universe. It is just a symbol. Remember that one of the commandments of Moses states you shall not make any image of God. That is why in order to explain different things, the ancient Gnostics make symbols that are not related with any image of any creature that exists in any part of the universe, in the sea or on the earth. For example, in the last lecture the speaker was talking about the Baphomet, which is a creature with a head of a goat and with an androgynous body and whose phallus is the caduceus of mercury and has feet of a Goat. You don't find a creature like that alive in any part of the universe. It is just a symbol in order to describe mysteries. This is the only way we can understand, because in Gnosticism we find a lot of symbols. Also, the way that the stories of the Bible are written is in order to also describe different truths that are hidden from the profane. In order to understand you have to learn what we are learning here, the meaning of all of this, in order to read and understand what is written. Everything is related with numbers and with cryptic symbols, esoteric meanings.
That is why the man of Zohar is the way in which we see how Adam Kadmon is controlling the universe. This is precisely the way in which Kabbalah explains the Tower of Babel. The goal of any Monad is to build that Man of Zohar within Itself, to have control of the earth, the solar system, the galaxy, the infinite, in order to become a Kosmos Human, which is a creature that soars in all of those dimensions, which are related to the Tree of Life.
In Kabbalah, this man is symbolized with the four letters - the Tetragrammaton, Iod Hei Vav Hei. The right pronunciation of the name is Iod Chavah. Also you can pronounce it Jah-Chavah because now in this Arcanum we are explaining that the word Jah is related with Kether, and from Jah-Chavah, we repeat, is "Jah," which is a most powerful mantra. When we pronounce hallelujah, we are saying "praise God" (Hebrew hellel to praise + Jah, which is Kether). The other part of Jah-Chavah, Chavah, is beneath, in the earth; it is Assiah, which is the world of action and matter, it is a feminine Sephirah, a feminine world, nature, and that is why always we refer to Chavah as the Queen, Eve, which is precisely where all the attributes of God are placed.
When we say that in Assiah, in Malkuth (which is Chavah), are placed all the attributes of divinity related with Yetzirah, Briah and beyond, we have to understand that our physical body is precisely that. When we delve into the earth we find in the earth all those attributes or powers of divinity, this is true, but the main thing is to delve the physical earth, which is the physical body, which is also called Assiah.
Yes, by understanding the physical body and the internal bodies is how we understand the work that we have to perform on the path of the Self-realization of our own particular Monad, that is, the development of all the powers of our own particular Elohim, in order for us to be united with it and return to the bosom of the Absolute as a triumphant Monad. In this case, the essence, the consciousness, has to work together with the Monad, and the Monad with the essence (the consciousness and the spirit) all together because the Monad and the essence are one. This is what we have to understand and comprehend. That is why on the path of Self-realization the Master Samael Aun Weor always states, "The Initiate has to work with filial love." This filial love means to feel that one is a child of God. Yes, to feel that one is a child of god is indispensable. But for that we have to remember ourselves here and now and to live in the present.
Remember that the devil, the ego that we have within, is not a Son of God. The ego is, we may well say, an abortion of Nature, which unfortunately lives within each one of us and which we have to annihilate.
So, the child of God that we are talking about here is the soul, the son, the essence which is in each one of us. That consciousness, that soul, which is an embryo, has to work and reunite with the Monad through the path of Initiation.
On the path of Initiation, that essence, that soul is reaching its Monad little by little and is developing all the attributes of his own Monad. The Monad develops within his own consciousness, thus the consciousness is absorbed by its Monad. That is how the Monad comes to know itself.
So then all of those attributes are placed in the physical body. It is stated that all of those attributes are 72 attributes that are explained with the name of God. Obviously, the first world of Atziluth is in relation with the letter "Iod," which has the value of 10. The next world "Briah" is related with the letters "Iod-Hei" having the value of 15, because Iod has the value of 10 and Hei has the value of 5. Yetzirah is in relation with "Iod-Hei-Vav" which makes the addition of 21. At the very bottom is Assiah, where we find "Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei," the world of action and matter, where all the powers of God are in action, which makes the addition of 26.
When we make the addition of all these worlds we find 72 values. That is why it is stated that God has 72 names. Remember that the name is in relation with the word. The power of the name is the word itself, powers that are within every creature, and in every monad, but in a state of potentiality, and all of those powers are placed in potentiality in the physical body. That is why it is necessary in every creation to reach the level in which we are right now, the fourth round, in order to place there all the attributes of God in every creature.
The Tower of Babel
That is why it is stated in Kabbalah that the foundation of the Tower of Babel has 72 pillars and 12 doors, and it is round. If you see that, you will understand that the circular aspect, or the round aspect of this first kabbalistic statement is referring to the world of Assiah, in which the Ouroboros is giving the energy and is rotating in all its power and potentiality in the 72 pillars, which sustain the foundation of this Tower of Babel.
If we do not put in activity all those powers, the man of Zohar does not come. Whether we create the Man of Zohar or whether we create the Tower of Babel: Here we find the two opposites. The opposite of the Tower of Babel is the Man of Zohar, which is the Kosmos Human very well developed.
Then we have the 12 doors of the base of the Tower of Babel, which are the twelve zodiacal signs, or as we will say in symbology, the 12 tribes in exile in Egypt. Remember that the 12 tribes of Israel went to Egypt, which is Matzarim, the world of matter, the world of Assiah, the planet itself in the three dimensional world. All the souls from their respective Monads enter into this physical world through any of the 12 doors because we are born in different zodiacal signs.
Now we have the physical body here. We have the 72 attributes in potentiality. If we make the addition of 72 we have the number 9. So here you see again that the Ninth Sphere is related with this. Everything is in potentiality in the letter "Nun" (the sperm), the essence of God, the sexual energy, the sexual matter. But in order to put "Nun" in activity we have to know the secret of the Arcanum, the mystery of Adam and Eve, which is directly related with the letter "Ayin."
If you visualize the letter "Ayin" carefully you find that it is the letter "Nun" opened, and holding the letter "Zain" on its base; Zain is in relation with the female aspect, the female force resting on the very bottom of the letter "Nun." But we have to understand that the letter "Nun" is the letter "Vav" with a foundation, which is Yesod. This means that all the forces of "Iod" from Kether descend through "Vav" and are placed in Yesod.
Thus, when you open the letter "Nun" and place the letter "Zain" on it, you are implying with it, the activity of the female force (Zain) of sexuality within "Nun," the sperm. And this is precisely what we always state - that this is how we develop knowledge. If you remember, or if you enquire about the Hebrew letters, the Kabbalistic letters, you will find that the letter "Ayin" is in the middle of the Hebrew word "Daath," which is written: "Daleth, Ayin, Tav." So "Ayin" is in the middle of the word "Daath" because "Ayin" is the clue. This is why it in the middle, in-between.
Therefore, we find that the mystery of the letter "Ayin" is contained with the letter "Zain," which is EVE. Remember that Kabbalistically we say VAV is Adam, the man. ZAIN is the woman in relation to the sexual force. Thus, in order to put into activity all of the attributes which are within the "Nun" of the physical body we need the activity of ZAIN, the feminine aspect of creation. In other words, we have to manipulate the sexual feminine forces, we have to control the sexual forces of ZAIN, to return them up, to transmute them in order to start building the Man of Zohar.
The second level of the Tower of Babel according to Kabbalah was square with nine storeys. If you visualize that you realize that every human being has four aspects and those aspects are related with the Ninth Sphere. The nine aspects, all the nine sephiroth of the Tree of Life are placed in Yesod. It refers to nine storeys.
The square is related with the inferior quaternary (the four bodies of sin) because we are not only the physical body. Inside of us we have the vital body, the kamarupa, and the inferior manas, which is the mind. When we investigate any animal of the kingdom we discover that they also have these vehicles inside. They have the physical body, as we have physical body. They have the vital body, as we have vital body. They have body of desire as we have body of desire (lunar astral), which is called in Theosophy Kamarupa. As we have mind, they also have mind. The difference is we have intellect, reasoning, while the irrational animal does not reason. Their mind is in a state of evolution. We have reached this level in which we reason. So those are the four inferior bodies that any creature possesses for evolution.
Thus, if we investigate any person on this earth we discover that they have that square within themselves. But also we know that the origin of these four bodies that everyone has is in Yesod. This is why all of the powers that are within the four bodies are related with the Ninth Sphere. That is why it is said that we find nine storeys inside that square, where everyone stores all of the powers in potentiality from all the Sephiroth above Malkuth.
So those are the powers that are assembled in the world of Assiah, in the outer circle of "Samech," as we explained in other lectures, because the interior circle of "Samech" is the kingdom of heaven and the outer circle is the kingdom of the confusion of tongues, the three dimensional world.
Every human being has three brains. This is how the tower is built. That is why it is stated that the third level of the Tower of Babel is triangular, with 42 turns. That triangular structure refers directly to the three brains that each one of us has. We are called the three-brained beings. In the three brains we have the Bobbin-Kandelnosts, which are the vital values that are placed in each one of us in the three brains in order for us to sustain the tower, which depends on how long we are going to live. We are stating here that each one of us, each person in the physical world is a Tower of Babel. This is how it is built. 42 is in relation with the 42 powers. Some kabbalists say that it is a name of God that has 42 letters. We will state that it is the power of the justice of God working to 42 powers. That is why in ancient Egypt they were always honoring the 42 Judges of Karma, the 42 forces of the Law that give in accordance to the Law of each one of us. This is the Law placed in the three brains. Why? Because it depends on how you use the three brains on how the Law is going to be applied to us.
Remember that in order for us to reach Self-realization we have to learn how to learn with the three factors of the revolution of the consciousness, which is synthesized in Buddhism as upright thought, upright feeling, and upright action - the three brains. That is why the Buddha Gautama Sakyamuni taught the three aspects of the action in which the consciousness exerts in the physical world. If our actions are upright, if our thoughts are upright, and our feelings are upright, then we are developing the Partkdolg duty of our Being, which is the perfect transformation of all impressions, not only in the physical world but in all the worlds of Kabbalah. When someone reaches the Self-realization of the Being it is because this person is acting with the Being-Partkdolg-Duty, the perfect transformation of all with the consciousness. But unfortunately we are not doing that. But this is the path. It is the power that balances, controls, equilibrates the cosmos, and that power works in us through the three brains. It cannot be another way because through the three brains is how we think, feel, and act. Here you find the meaning of all the doctrines of all Avatars, of all Masters, who always teach us how to control the three brains.
It comes into my mind the First Commandment:
Hear, O Israel: Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei our Elohim is integrated as Jah-Chavah: And (for this) thou shalt love Jah-Chavah thy Elohim with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength. - Deuteronomy: 6: 4, 5
This commandment is for the consciousness, which is bottled up in the Tower of Babel. If you want to reach the level of Kosmos Human (the KH, the level of Man of Zohar, Adam Kadmon), then we have to love our own inner God with all our mind or understanding, with all our heart or emotional feelings, and with all our strength.
Strength always refers to the energy that moves the matter and gives action to the physical matter, and even to the internal bodies: it refers to the sexual energy, to the instinctual energy, and the motor energy. Thus, in the sexual, instinctual motor brain we have three centers which are related with the strength. Remember that in this physical world when someone wants to use their strength they have to be in movement. Any action related with motion is related with strength. Sports, for instance, which in this day and age are very popular, are related with the motor center. But there are certain sports that are related with the instinctual center such as karate, kung fu, or boxing. That is instinctual and motor at the same time; both relate to the strength of the body. The other strength relates to sexual action or the sexual act, where we also use the strength (Aun in Hebrew), the energy of the motor instinctual sexual brain.
But also we use the emotional brain. That is why Moses stated that you have to love your God with all your mind, with all your heart, and with all your strength. Sometimes he says with all your soul, but remember that the soul he is talking about is Nephesh. That Nephesh is related with different centers, in this case with the sexual center, instinctive center, motor center. That is to love God with all your soul. Of course, that means that you have to put into activity all of your energy for your God, for your Monad. But that is a process of right thought, right feeling, and right action.
This is how the fires of Christ, which are an energy, a force that we have to control and store within ourselves, are cleaning, transforming us through the 42 turns around this triangle or structure, because we have a lot of karma and each of the 42 Judges of Karma are pointing to us.
Read the 42 Negative Confessions in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. The Master Samael wrote in one of his books that finally after many ordeals and many psychological works in his ego, in his initiations he was finally before the 42 Judges of Karma pronouncing the negative confessions. He had to face every Judge and utter the name of the Judge and say, "I did not do this." For instance, in order to say before the Judge related with the sexual force "I never fornicated." You must not have any atoms of lust within you. If you say "I never fornicated" and if you still have only one psychological aggregate of lust within you then you are a liar. The judge will then say, "You are not truthful. You are pronouncing a lie."
So, when you pronounce the Negative Confessions, the Judges are looking at you, because they are awakened Beings. Their divine sight (the letter "Ayin") is awakened. This is how they see within you.
Sequentially, if you are psychologically dead, then he says, "You are right, you never fornicated," because he sees your Being. He sees no atom of lust within you.
Then you face another judge, and say, "I never killed." Then the judge sees you there, "You are right, you have no ego of killing, of hatred, or anger within you. So you are clean. You are forgiven." Judge by judge you have to pronounce, "I never did this." Understand that this is the Negative Confessions for the Dead.
Nevertheless, we are alive. If we want to pronounce that confession before the Judges of Karma they will kick us out and say. "Are you joking with me? You cannot even pronounce one confession." The Negative confession relates to the power of the 42 Judges, the power of the Law of Karma. This is why we state that we are entangled in the Tower of Babel, entangled in these 42 turns that go around the triangle, which is related with our three brains.
But of course, with the help of Horus (son of Osiris), who is Christ, or whatever you want to name Him, the Lord, the Cosmic Christ incarnated in the Bodhisattva that can reach that level. The Bodhisattva has to defeat Mara (Lucifer) in order to reach that level and thus resurrect in order to enter into the world of Briah.
Sequentially, following the kabbalistic configuration of the Tower of Babel; after that triangular structure with 42 rounds there is a cylindrical construction that has within it 72 storeys. What is the symbol of this? Well, we are reaching the head, or we will say the cerebrospinal nervous system, the throne of God.
This cylindrical structure is the spinal column. In it you find the 72 aspects of God developed. No one can develop these 72 aspects of Divinity without the power of the fire. All the great Cosmocreators have that power developed. This is why it is stated that those storeys, which are 72 in that cylindrical construction, are united, or each storey is joined to one another by 7 staircases. This reminds us of the 7 powers of the Being, the 7 churches that we have to develop in the spinal column, because those 7 staircases are related with the 7 powers in the spinal column, in which the initiate has to unite earth and heaven, heaven and earth, in order to build the Man of the Zohar (Adam Kadmon, the Kosmos Human).
The 72 divine powers are developed in the world of Atziluth, which is the world of the Logos, the world of Kether, which gives to the Initiate the complete development of objective reasoning. Behold here and visualize that objective reasoning is a task for those initiates who want to acquire such a divine sight. Through objective reasoning you see and comprehend all of creation within you; not that you read it in a book, not that you discuss it once in a while, but that you visualize, that you cosmically see, after you become a Self-realized Master.
The levels of objective reasoning in Buddhism are related with the three Kayas - the Darmakayas, the Sambogakayas, and the Nirmanakayas, related with the three primary forces (Kether, Chokmah, Binah; Father, Son and Holy Spirit). These types of humans with objective reasoning are made into the image of God.
But as intellectual animals, we, down here, have those 72 attributes in potentiality. Yes, instead of having them in activity as a Kosmos Human, as an Adam Kadmon.
So, instead, what do we have within? We have Nimrod. It is funny that people use the term Nimrod in order to point to someone who is stupid. Nimrod is really the intellect, the subjective reasoning. Nimrod is alive within every personality. It is the intellect itself - subjective reasoning, which is the outcome of evolution, mechanicity.
It is stated in the Bible that Nimrod was a powerful hunter before Jehovah or the holy name of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, meaning that mechanicity, the personality, is using attributes and power, is using the energy of the four bodies in order to develop subjective reasoning. The mechanical mind, the intellect is always hunting for titles, pride, being better than others, and this is what this world is. Each one of us is a hunter. Each one of us is a Nimrod.
All of this, which is stated symbolically in Kabbalah, is built by a great Architect of the Tower of Babel whose name is Phaleg. This reminds us of the phallus. Really all the powers of creation, whether for the Tower of Babel, or whether for the Kosmos Human, the Man of Zohar, is in the phallus. It depends on how we use it. Such is the symbol of Phaleg and of Nimrod, the king of the Tower of Babel.
That Tower of Babel is not something from the past. It exists right now. Each person in this physical world is a Tower of Babel. That is why this society is in confusion because each one of us is in confusion. Our inner Nimrod thinks that by believing in this or that he will reach heaven, but this is confusion.
The powers of the Ain Soph, the powers of the Absolute that descend from above through the Tree of Life, and are placed in Assiah, when descending in Assiah say, "Let us see what the children of man have built." When they come down into this society, into this civilization they said "oh it is just a Tower of Babel." Yes, everyone is in confusion, everyone is following this or that and nobody knows that in order to go out from the tower of Babel you have to first go inside and build the Kosmos Human, the psychological man, which is precisely the son of Nun, JESHUA.
You see written in the Bible that when the Israelites left Egypt (Matzarim) and entered into the Promised Land, when going to conquer the Promised Land, Moses disappeared. Then, the one who rules after Moses and starts talking to God and following the directions of God is Joshua, the son of Nun.
Joshua means Savior. Nun is related with the sexual force, meaning that the energy starts developing within you the Kosmos Human, the objective reasoning, the reason for existing in the universe. But subjective reasoning cannot mingle with objective reasoning. Subjective reasoning has to collapse and this is how the buildings, how the wall of Jericho are destroyed by the power of the Word. It is written there in the Bible that they go around and they blow their trumpets and all the walls of Jericho fall and they conquer the city of AI, which is the eye, the divine sight, the objective reasoning. Alas, how few are those who are capable of doing that.
Many people here, on the contrary, what they want and what they develop is the tenebrous sight, which only works in Klipoth. There are many black magicians, sorcerers, witches, who have powers in Klipoth, but not in the higher worlds. They think that because they have powers in Klipoth they have the powers of the universe. No. Klipoth is hell, the infernos. And since they have powers in hell, in Klipoth, and because all of humanity is fallen into Klipoth, they control humanity. We will say they control the ego of humanity which belongs to Klipoth. Those black magicians, sorcerers, and witches cannot control the inner circle of the Kingdom of Heaven because the devil cannot enter there. This is why it is written that we have to renounce Malkuth in order to enter into the Promised Land, the land of Ish-Ra-El.
Once, somebody told me that the word "RA" in Hebrew means evil. I said "What about "Ra" within "Is-ra-el?" Is that "ra" evil, too?"
The "Is" of "Israel" is the ISH, is the fire, and RA is "Reish" the solar force, and EL is God. Thus, "Israel" is the solar fire of God that we have to transform and put in the spinal column, which is the Promised Land, individually speaking.
To enter the Promised Land is to conquer the spinal column, to acquire power in the Monad (God), not power in Klipoth.
This is why this Klipothic humanity is fighting on this physical earth when trying to make of their religion the best. Klipothic humanity only follows beliefs. They say, "follow this belief; wait no, better to follow this belief; no wait, this other belief is better." Conclusion, this is the Tower of Babel. It does not matter what belief you have here; it does not matter what religion you follow, if it is a belief, it is Babel.
We have to follow God inside; when we develop the inner Being, the inner man, when we develop the human being into the image of God, then we realize that all religions have the same fundaments or foundations. The humanity of Babel always makes a mistake in believing that by fortifying Nimrod is how they are going to reach salvation.
There are some Nimrods who believe in Jesus Christ. There are other Nimrods who believe in Moses, other Nimrods who believe in Buddha, and other Nimrods who believe in Zoroaster; yes, every Nimrod has his own beliefs, thinking that he is going to reach Heaven by beliefs, or because of evolution, or because of time. They ignore that Nimrod has to be annihilated.
In the "Book of Revelation" Nimrod is called the Antichrist because he is only concerned with the physical world. Christ is something within. The Antichrist Nimrod is in the head of everybody. So here we finally find how the Tower of Babel is developed. We have to understand and comprehend how that tower has to collapse little by little while developing the right thing, the Kosmos Human.
The Fulminated Tower
This is why you see on the 16th Arcanum that lightning coming from above is destroying the Tower of Babel. You see two persons here falling down into the abyss, into Klipoth. This is why at the bottom of the card you see the Staff of Command that can be used in either way. The flail, the whip is related with willpower. And on each side you find a serpent, that is, whether you awake the kundabuffer or the kundalini, whether you awake the tempting serpent of Eden, or you develop the serpent that healed the Israelites in the wilderness. These serpents are opposites, the two forces, from them depend both buildings; if you want to develop the Man of Zohar, the man in the image of God, then you will have to do it through the serpent that healed the Israelites in the wilderness, Nachash. But if you develop the kundabuffer you become a Nimrod, a king of your own tower of Babel, or a king that can control other Babel towers too, since some Nimrods or Kings have their people and through them they build their kingdoms in Babylon. Babylon symbolizes mistaken groups, mistaken societies from the land of Shinar (for the land of Shinar, is Babel, the cerebrospinal nervous system, where we find the head and root of severance from God).
Yet, remember that in the land of Shinar were also instituted the sacred College of Eden in which the sacred mysteries that we are describing here were taught only to those who knew how to destroy the Tower of Babel, and who knew how to build inside of themselves the right thing.
The Two Paths
This is how you understand and comprehend that when someone reaches the top of the Self-realization of the Being then he or she returns into the bosom of the Absolute, into the Ain Soph. Remember that the Ain Soph is the origin of creation. When the universe disappears then all the Monads return into the Ain Soph. Those Monads that are Self-realized and return into the 12th Aeon, which is the Ain Soph, are transformed into Cosmocreators, into Watchers, into Logos, Monads capable of helping other Monads in future cosmic days.
This is why in every cosmic day Self-realized Monads appear as Cosmocreators. They are not only capable of creating a human body; they can also create a planet. Understand that they acquire the level of Cosmocreation through Self-realization. The Monads that are newly manifest enter into that cosmic day and are assisted by these Cosmocreators in order for them to acquire the same level, because that is the goal of the universe: that is, for all of us reach that level.
The Monads that reach such a level have the duty of helping the Cosmic Christ. The Cosmic Christ is the Ain Soph Aur. It is the light of the Ain Soph that has on His shoulders the responsibility of creation. His law is sacrifice because He sacrifices himself in every cosmic day, in every planet, in every solar system, and any galaxy in order to assist the Monads to acquire Paramartha: Absolute Consciousness.
Yet, you find that only those who follow the Direct Path are the ones that the Cosmic Christ assists and uses in future cosmic days in order to keep his duty. Cosmocreators have the duty of helping the Cosmic Christ, who is not a person but a force, a cosmic force. This is why the path of the Cosmocreators is the path of sacrifice, the path of the Bodhisattva, in every cosmic day, in order to sacrifice for humanities. When a humanity disappears, they then appear and sacrifice themselves for another humanity, and so on and so forth, until the Cosmic Christ finally says "You have been helping Me through many Mahamanvataras. Now I will take you to the AIN, which is the 13th Aeon. You earned that; now you have to do another sacrifice, that is, now you have to renounce omniscience and omnipotence." Thus, this is how Cosmocreators enter into the AIN. Master Jesus of Nazareth (Master Aberamento) entered into the AIN. But he had to fight for that. He sacrificed himself through many humanities, through many Mahamanvantaras.
The Master Samael Aun Weor is a Cosmocreator. He has been sacrificing for many planetary humanities, for many Mahamanvantaras. He says "Now I would like at the end of this Mahamanvantara, when the Pralaya starts (which is the Cosmic Night), I would like to finally enter into the 13th Aeon." But he says, "This is what I say, but I am only the son. If I go to my Father and say - I want to enter into the 13th Aeon, Kether will say ‘what is that disrespect here. I am the one who gives the last word here. If you have want to enter there go by yourself. But I don't. I want to sacrifice myself for more planetary humanities.' Thus, you have to understand," he says, "that I am the inferior part of Him so I have to follow Him. This is what I want, but what He wants is another thing. He and I are one." So, part of the Monad cannot be left behind in the universe. The whole integrated being has to enter. So everything has to be united in harmony. So, do you understand what the path of the Cosmocreators is (the Direct Path)?
The spiral path is another way; it is just for the Buddhas Pratyekas ("solitary ones") that do not sacrifice for humanity. They eventually enter into the Absolute through many Mahamanvantaras, but as a simple Monad, with knowledge, yes, but not with objective reasoning, which the Bodhisattvas develop in the path of cosmocreation.
This is why it is written that many Bodhisattvas were sent to the planet Earth in the beginning of its creation. Yes, you have to understand that all of the Monads from past cosmic days have the duty of helping creation, and that is why they appear as Angels or Archangels. However, in this case, since we are talking about fire, which is in relation to Ayin, we have to enter into the world of Hod.
We spoke extensively in the last lecture about Archangels from the world of Hod, from the cosmic day called the Solar Cosmic Round, the cosmic round of the Sun. These cosmocreators are called in Kabbalah "Beni Elohim," which in English means the Children of the Elohim or the Children of the Gods - in other words, the Bodhisattvas. Why in Hod? Because the astral body is that body that is related to Hod, to our own particular individual Jesus Christ. The astral body is that immortal body that unites our physical personality with the supreme immanence of the Solar Father. Obviously, the Beni Elohim also have the mental body and causal body; but they are placed within the inner Christ and that is why they are called Beni Elohim. In other words, the Beni Elohim are Bodhisattvas.
So, the Bodhisattvas of past cosmic days who reached Self-realization were sent to the Earth in the beginning in order to help with the creation of this planet, and they were the souls, we will say, of those first humanities that existed on the earth. They came in order to help. They also helped humanities that were created in past cosmic days on this same planet, or better said, on this same Anima Mundi. The Master Samael Aun Weor stated: "My Father sent me to the planet Earth in the beginning of creation of this planet. I was sent to the planet in order to help and in order to learn as well. I was incarnated in the Protoplasmic race, in the Hyperborean race, and in the Lemurian race. But not only me, other Dhyani Bodhisattvas also incarnated."
What is a Dhyani Bodhisattva? A Dhyani Bodhisattva is someone who has reached the 12th Aeon. He is a Logos, a Cosmocreator, someone who helps creation in different ways. It is stated:
And it came to pass, when Adam began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of the Elohim saw the daughters of Adam that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. - Genesis 6: 1, 2
This means that in the last times of Lemuria daughters were born from men (Adam), in other words, Eve was taken out of Adam. It hides the same symbol as when you read:
And Jah-Chavah Elohim caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which Jah-Chavah Elohim had taken from Adam, made he a woman, and brought her unto Adam. - Genesis 2: 21, 22
So, you find that in Genesis 2: 21, 22 Eve was taken from Adam. This is a single statement there. However in the statement of Chapter 6, which we are talking about, is plural, it is stated in Genesis 6: 1, 2 that the daughters of men (Adam) were being born and they were beautiful.
Regarding about the daughters of men, it is written there "Adam." So, these "Adam" (in plural) had daughters, in other words, when the division of sexes took place, each woman was an Eve. Let us say it in another way: When humanity was divided into two sexes there were beautiful women on the earth, which were daughters of Adam, daughters of men, as it says in the Bible. Because if you read the Hebrew words you do not find there the word "men" written as "ISHIM"; but we find the word "Adam," which refers to the man of that epoch. So the daughters of men are the Eves (females) from Adam (the males).
Then the Beni Elohim (the children of God) descended and took wives. Here is precisely the way you have to understand, since it has different meanings. The children of God (the Beni Elohim) descend on the Earth, and they descend by taking a woman, by taking a daughter of Adam, by taking a daughter of man. This is the mystery of "Ayin" in which the initiate in order to teach, in order to help humanity descends and take a woman. They perform the sexual act. But another way is when the Beni Elohim fall, when they fornicate with women. These are the two ways, because the Tower of Babel, the Sixteenth Arcanum is showing us that you either descend or fall.
It is written that most of those Angels, Dhyani Bodhisattvas or Bodhisattvas of the Elohim or Cosmocreators fell into fornication and became demons. A few of them helped humanity. Through the letter ZAIN (Eve) they were helping humanity. Nevertheless, the Dhyani Bodhisattvas who fell did not help humanity. They corrupted humanity more. Humanity needed to be helped, but they corrupted it. Some of those fallen angels are named in different books, i.e. Belial, Bael, Andrameleck, Moloch, and the biggest of all of them, the demon Jahveh ("Yahweh") that many Kabbalists have intentionally confused with the name of Jehovah. Jehovah is a name of God. Jahveh is the name of a demon. But they are spelled the same way.
When you use the Hebrew letters, when you write the name Jahveh with the letters Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, it does not mean that he is holy. His inner Being is holy, but he is a demon. The Bodhisattva fell; he betrayed his own God. It is stated that any fallen Bodhisattva is accused of three crimes. The first is the assassination of his inner Elohim through fornication. So the demon Jahveh - who is written intentionally in many bibles as Jehovah - is a demon who betrayed his own Elohim, his own God and became the boss of the Black Lodge, the boss of Klipoth. So do not mistake Jahveh with Jehovah or Iod-Havah or Jah-Chavah; there are many different ways of uttering the name. Yet, Jahveh is the one who has on his shoulders the cause of the degeneration of this humanity. He is the one that planned everything for the Black Lodge in order to corrupt this humanity.
Then you find that all those fallen Dhyanis of Lemuria, about whom the ‘Book of Enoch' states more or less 200 that fell in one day, they were many of course. Master Samael has stated that there are many fallen Gods that are walking on the earth as any run of the mill person, and some are punished because they dishonored the Elohim. They dishonored the White Lodge. They dishonored creation and that is why this planet has a lot of karma. Many of them are helping, like in the case of the Dhyani Bodhisattva Samael Aun Weor; but most of them are still there in Klipoth following the orders of Jahveh and his plans.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the Beni-Elohim came in unto the daughters of Adam, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Genesis 6: 4
These children of the Beni Elohim were the latest Lemurians; at that time there were in humanity the Nephilim (giants); the Lemurians were huge human beings that were on the Earth. Since that time, humanity returns and returns into the Wheel of Samsara; thus, after the fall of these Dhyani Bodhisattvas, in the time of Atlantis, they tried to reach Divinity in the wrong way (the tower of Babel) as we have already explained, through theories and beliefs, trying to conquer heaven or enter into the superior worlds with the kundabuffer. It is written that they were destroyed and defeated.
Despite that, humanity has always received help. The White Lodge is always helping even those demons in order to build them up, to pull them up, repented. But not all of them repent. Most of them are there in the world of Klipoth with many followers who are loyal to them, thinking that in the world to come they will be the new angels.
The system through which the Tower of Babel works is the Fragility; this means that the souls who are in fornication descend and fall into Klipoth and are disintegrated there. After their disintegration they ascend again in the fourth dimension through the kingdoms of Nature (mineral, plant, animal and human) but without wisdom, as simple failures. They enter again, yes, into the kingdom world of Jehovah, which is the fourth dimension, which we explained very carefully in other lectures. However, they enter as simple elementals.
One thing is to enter into the fourth dimension after the disintegration in hell, after the law of entropy having equalizing all souls with death. Thus, after such a law takes over every soul and equalizes it with death, the souls ascend again through the four kingdoms, in the fourth dimension, under the direction of the Angels of Jehovah as simple elementals, after having passed at least 1,000 years in Klipoth.
The other way to enter into the fourth dimension, to enter into the promised land (which is not through the Klipothic way, the lunar way) is the solar way in which we disintegrate the Tower of Babel with the powers of God and through Initiation, in order to reach the different levels which we are explaining here and that we have to acquire in order to get out from this confusion which we are in.
If you observe this present civilization that is spreading on all the continents (on which this present humanity lives) they are again building the Tower of Babel in community. This time the Tower of Babel is empty, in other words, is a hollow tower, and the top of it is the moon (the lunar mind) because through the intellect, Nimrod (the personality) has created rockets that go up and down into the outer space; as you know, they want to conquer the space, they want to enter onto other planets without respect for the cosmic laws. Nimrod ignores that space is controlled by superior laws. Nimrod ignores that there are many Kosmos Humans who patrol the space and who know us very well.
On the internet you find many websites that talk about UFOs. Some people are skeptical and think that this is just the fantasy of Nimrod. Present humanity ignores that the Cosmic Law comes and watches us not only inside, but also outside. Cosmocreators are patrolling the space in their cosmic ships; they patrol not only this solar system but this whole galaxy, the whole cosmos, this whole cosmic organization.
The fact is that like Samson this humanity is fallen blindly into the mill. Samson in Hebrew is Shemson. Shemesh is the Sun, the solar force, and On is Aun, the strength in the sexual energy. Thus Shemson is within each one of us, symbolically speaking. Since Lemuria, we fell because we identified with Delilah (Lilith). If I say this, it is because the Bible states that the women in that time who were the daughters of men were beautiful, thus, the way that it is called is they were Hannah. Hannah in Hebrew is a word that means delight, joy, pleasure (qualities associated with Venus). From Hannah comes the world of the Angel Hanael, which is the Angel of Love.
The opposite of Hannah is Nahamah, the evil beauty. Samson fell into the evil beauty of Delilah (Lilith, the night) and lost his powers. If we call this Shemson ABEL we will say he will be ABEL with knowledge, with Daath. But he fell and lost his eyes, his Ayin, and he became blind, rotating in the mill or wheel of Samsara through many reincarnations. And this is how we are, because of fornication with Delilah, with the night, reoccurring in fornication through many reincarnations. We are in exile, Ishmael in exile, in Egypt, in Assiah, in Malkuth. And we want to return, to return into the Promised Land. Only Ieshua, Joshua, can take us there.
So then you see, this humanity is fallen, thus, we need to return by understanding that we are fallen. Some of us are fallen and form the pentagram upside down as you see it in the graphic: the legs up and the head below forming the upside down pentagram, which makes the symbol of the Goat's Head or Baphomet falling down.
There is a hand symbol here that you see in many pictures of Jesus Christ, he shows his hand with its three fingers up (the thumb, the index and the middle up) and the annular finger and baby finger bent towards the palm; this is the pentagram. The index forms the head, the middle is one of the arms and the thumb is the other arm and the two fingers that are bent are the legs. That is the symbol of the pentagram. You find this symbol in the right hand of Jesus; this means the upright pentagram, the symbol of Christ.
While the opposite is what we see here (which is just the index and the middle above and the other three below) this is the symbol that the hippy movement was and is using, this means the head and arms below and legs above. Some say "oh that is the symbol of the devil." Yes, it is the symbol of the devil. This means that the star of five points is upside down. Others say it is the V of victory. But no, it is the symbol of the upside down pentagram, which many followers of the Black Lodge use, simple things that you see everywhere, and this is how the members of the Black Lodge recognizes each other, by doing that symbol, that sign which is the symbol of those souls that are fallen and entering into the Abyss.
(The thumb symbolizes mars, willpower. Thus, pointing the thumb up means to do the will of God; whereas, bending the thumb down means to do the will of the beast, the ego, the devil)
All of this humanity is related to the Tower of Babel, which relates to this big society, this great civilization which we are in; it is Babylon. Do you understand this? If Nimrod is inside of the head of everyone, then obviously Babylon is here, Shinar is here. Babylon the great, the mother of all fornications and adulteries, is the whole humanity. It is not only Iraq; it is America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Antarctica, and any island. This is Babylon the great, whose number is 666, the beast. And the whore that is seated on top of that beast is this humanity that holds a cup with all the abominations of the earth in there. The mind is that cup that the whore holds in her hand.
If you clairvoyantly go into the fifth dimension, there in the astral plane you will see that symbol, and if you put your nose in order to smell the cup that the whore holds in her hand, you will see that it smells of alcohol, because this is what this humanity drinks - it is drinking alcohol everywhere, celebrating everything with alcohol. The demon Algol is within that cup of that whore - vodka, rum, whiskey, kahlua. It does not matter how you name it, you find that demon everywhere.
Thus, everybody in the Tower of Babel toasts to Nimrod with a cup of alcohol in the hand, whether a beggar or a king, because those who are very refined drink special wine, special drinks. That is the beast. They are dressed very well like kings and queens, but toasting to Nimrod, this great civilization, this great Babel that is collapsing and will collapse. That is why when we hear people who say that this civilization will conquer other planets they don't know that the civilization Atlantis also tried to do the same, because they also built the Tower of Babel.
Every Nimrod there in Atlantis built a Tower of Babel, and they also built rockets and better rockets than the rockets that we have in this present civilization. Yes, Atlanteans had better rockets. Yet, they were fulminated by the Cosmic Ray. It is written that Atlantis was destroyed in one night by the universal flood. But Atlanteans in their epoch were space travelers; they were traveling not only to the moon, they also traveled to Mercury, to Venus, to Mars, to Jupiter, Saturn, which still in this time is impossible for us. At their time of Kali Yuga, in Atlantis, they were already traveling in the space and meeting many other planetary civilizations. Nevertheless, they were destroyed when they were trying to conquer other humanities and corrupt other humanities.
The Cosmic Patrols do not allow barbarism in the space, but they are compassionate. They are trying to approach us, to help us. There are many ignoramuses who think that they are coming to conquer us. They do not need to conquer this planet. As I said in other lectures, why do you need to be a king of a mental hospital? You come into the mental hospital and you feel pity and you want to help. But the crazy people here are smart-alecky who think that these cosmic doctors want to conquer this Earth because we are so beautiful. This civilization ludicrously states that space aliens want to eat us, to make hamburgers of us. If you see Hollywood movies, you will understand what I mean.
The truth is this - they are compassionate and they want to help. But they respect our free will. They help us if we allow them to help us because nothing is given by force here. This is why we are giving this knowledge to humanity. If you want it, take it. We are teaching how to get out from this Babel. If you love Babel, if you worship Nimrod and you want to stay here in this Assiah, this world of corruption, to go into Klipoth, to hell after all, then you are free to do so, because no one can be Self-realized by force. It is impossible. We need to kneel and say "Father, if it is possible, take this cup out of me, but not my will but Thine be done." We have to unite our will with the will of our God, not a God that is outside because God is not outside. He is inside. That is the God we have to respect, and the God of our neighbors as ourselves. Thus by doing that by working inside is how we get out of this Tower of Babel.
The elder brothers who come in their cosmic ships, the elder brothers who are already on the Earth, are here with open arms but you have to go and to hear and to practice what they teach, which is based on the three factors:
- First factor: Chastity, scientific chastity, transmutation of the sexual energy in the perfect matrimony.
- Second factor: annihilation of Nimrod, complete annihilation of Tuval Cain, Cain, the antichrist, the devil, Satan, whatever name you want to give to that entity that we have within. You have to annihilate it. For this we have to learn how to meditate, how to comprehend our own ego.
- Third factor: We have to sacrifice for others, to help others, because love is the law, but conscious love.
It comes into my mind in this very moment something that Jesus says in the work:
Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye (Ayin) for an eye (Ayin), and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. - Matthew 5: 38, 39
So, if someone hits your right cheek turn to him your left also. This is not literally as many think that if someone punches you in the face you say, "Oh, please now punch my left." That would be stupid. The right cheek symbolizes the right actions that we have to do. Sometimes we help humanity but believe me we have received a lot of slaps in the face for the help that we are giving, directly or indirectly. But we also put the left, meaning that we take that impression and we comprehend our own pride, our own selfishness, our own self importance, our own self esteem, vanity, all of that, and thereafter we put the left and we show them that we are not perfect. We are giving a wisdom that is not our wisdom. This is wisdom of God.
This doctrine is not our doctrine. We are just delivering something that belongs to the universe, the cosmos. Someone may say - oh you are talking about Hebrew letters, they belong to the Hebrew people, to the Jews. No. The Latin letters are used by many people; it does not belong to only the Italians. The Greek letters are used also by other people, and not only by the Greeks. The fact that in Israel they speak the Hebrew language and they use the kabbalistic alphabet does not mean that they are the only ones that should use it. We have also to study it and we have to stop saying that it belongs to this or that people, because it belongs to the universe.
The Bible is written with that sacred alphabet because the Hebrew alphabet is a sacred alphabet that belongs to humanity. That is why many kabbalists study it. But also cosmic secrets relate to the Runes, for instance, we the Aryans we have to also learn the Runic Alphabet. It is written that in the beginning of this root race the children of the Aryans started learning about the sacred doctrine little by little and they stopped being barbarians. That word barbarian is used by many people pointing to people that are uncivilized. The word barbarian (bar-aryan) means children of the Aryan; that is what a barbarian is. Thus, all of us are barbarians. In other words, the Tower of Babel is inhabited by barbarians because we are the children of the Aryan race. We have to stop being barbarians and to become children of God, to transform ourselves, and for that we have to know how to transform the impressions, how to put the left cheek to show that we are not perfect, to love our neighbors as we love our inner selves.
Nevertheless, presently if someone slaps us on the face we say "oh no, my way is the only way" "our science is perfect and yours is imperfect." This way we are slapping the other in the face too. We have to respect the belief of others. If people take the doctrine, okay, if not, okay too.
And if thy right eye offends thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. - Matthew 5: 29
The meaning of this Jesus' saying is "if your right eye makes you fall, makes you sin," meaning Zain, because the right eye of the letter Ayin is made by the letter Zain, which is in relation with the woman (Eve, your creativity), or the way in which you transmute, because the letter Zain teaches you how to transmute your energy.
On your path of transmutation, of chastity, your right eye always makes you fall, meaning that during the sexual act, during the moment you are transmuting in the Sahaja Maithuna, sexual magic, you might have thoughts, your imagination, because remember that "Ayin" means divine sight. Your imagination, your fantasy, puts in your mind filthy things. Or you may see with your right eye the neighbor and covet the wife of the neighbor, the husband of the neighbor and that makes you to sin. So take that eye out of you. It is better that you are without that eye than to go to hell with all the body, which is what the Master Jesus says. But to take that eye out is of course symbolic, because to take the physical eyes out is stupid. To take the right eye out of you is to transform that impression completely and to understand how to see women, because in order to see women as we men see is negative. We always see women in the very negative way, perverted way. There are also women who see men in the perverted way. They don't know how to transform because in order to see women or women to see men in the right way without lust does not mean you have to have a bandage on your eyes and not see anybody. No. You have to learn, and you learn that through meditation.
Master Samael says when he was alive "if you look at my eyes (Ayin) and you observe my eyes you will see how I see women." He says "I educated my sight to see women from the waist up and not from the waist down as many men do it, perverted." But he was not learning that from one day to the next. He was meditating in his lust until he learned how to see women in the right way, from the waist up, meaning without allowing the fires of the lower abdomen, which are related with Satan, with lust, Behemoth, and with all those lustful things that we have in the lower abdomen. To see women in that way is to know how to polarize, to transform the impressions from the waist up and not how to see with the right eye, in the right way, right transformation, no negative transformation that we are accustomed to. So you have to learn how to read the Bible, how to read the Scriptures. This is something psychological.
Everybody repeats Jesus' sayings, yet, in order to perform them you need a lot of meditation and a lot of comprehension.
Questions and Answers
Audience: What is the Anima Mundi?
Instructor: Anima Mundi is a Latin word which means "the soul of the world." It is the soul of the planet. We will say that the Anima Mundi of this planet was incarnated in the other planet, which is called the moon but is now dead. The Anima Mundi of the moon reincarnated cosmically speaking into this planet and that is why this planet inherited the karma of the moon. Do you understand this? How the Anima Mundi is reincarnated? The Anima Mundi of this planet comes from the Saturnian epoch. That was the first incarnation. The second incarnation was the solar round. The third was the lunar round and now this Anima Mundi is in its fourth round of the fourth incarnation.
Audience: How is the Ayin related to the AIN?
Instructor: What do you mean, with the Absolute? It might have a relation but AIN the Absolute is written with the letter Aleph, while AYIN is written with the letter AYIN, which is the eyes of God. It might have some relation of course, if they are positive. But those Ayin (eyes) can fall. When Samson was identified with Delilah, with the sexual feminine force of Malkuth, he lost his divine sight and now we have a simple sight. If I tell you we have divine sight right now, it would be a joke because if you observe the way in which we see women, as I was telling you, that is just the beginning. It as the Master Jesus says.
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. - Matthew 5: 27, 28
This was written for those who are following the path inside. It is enough for your eyes (Ayin) to see a woman in the wrong way to commit adultery, to adulterate the fires of your heart with the action of seeing the neighbor in the wrong way. That is why you shall not covet anything on the earth.
In order not to covet anything on the earth you have to understand that everything is Maya, it has a beginning and an end, it is illusion. Another question?
Audience: Can you explain more about the 200 Dhyani Bodhisattvas that fell in one day. Is this literal or symbolic?
Instructor: Symbolic, of course. Two is in relation with Nature. Of course, there were many. If you read the Genesis of Enoch you will find the names of the angels who fell. Now in this age of Kali Yuga some of them are trying to rise again. And of course, all of them became demons. But when I say all of them became demons, I am not talking about Kether, Chokmah, Binah. We are talking about the Dhyani Bodhisattvas. You have to understand this. The fallen angels are the fallen Beni Elohim, the children of the Gods, which are the human souls of those beings, because God is always perfect. The one who falls is the Bodhisattva, never God, who is always perfect. And on them falls the shame of degeneration. That is why the inner Beings of all those demons, up there in the superior worlds, are stagnant. They cannot go ahead because they are waiting for those souls to regenerate themselves, to annihilate the ego in order to keep ahead with their own development.
Audience: Is it Beelzebub that never saw the light, meaning he was not a fallen angel and he started in darkness?
Instructor: The question is about Beelzebub that he was not a fallen angel. Yes it is true. There are many Monads, or we will say many consciousnesses of many souls who fell into the Black Lodge, into Klipoth, since many cosmic days ago and they never saw the light. So they never knew about the light, about the knowledge that we are teaching here. They believed that the way in order to reach perfection is through the darkness of Klipoth, through the Kundabuffer, and one of those was of course Beelzebub. But the Master Samael taught him and showed him the light; now he is working in the white way, in the positive way. So he never knew. Now he knows. He never knew the light.
Audience: So he thought evil was good?
Instructor: He thought that evil was good. Because in this case we will say, when you are awakened and you see not only this physical world but the internal worlds obviously you know that you are not like other people. There are many people who are skeptical here and who don't believe in anything because they think that only this physical world is what exists. But if you start awakening your consciousness and start seeing something beyond and obviously you like that because you are not like the common and ordinary people. You are developing your inner powers. It is good to awaken, but not in evil. Beelzebub was awakened and seeing all the nine inferior layers of Klipoth and he thought that he was awakened in good. And he really was awakened, but down there in hell. Not up there in heaven. Many down there in hell are awakened and they develop inferior powers.
You see we also teach Jinn Science. Jesus walked on the Sea of Galilee by using the hyperspace, the fourth dimension. When you enter into the fourth dimension you can enter into the sea and not be afraid of drowning because you can breathe there. So anything can happen when you enter into the fourth dimension. But the Black Magicians also know how to enter into the fourth dimension. But they don't go up, they go down: witches and sorcerers fly in the fourth dimension, which is something incredible for skeptics. But for mystics it is something natural. I know many of those individuals who are awakened in evil and for the evil, and I respect their will; that is, if they want that, it is not my business. They want to go there, but they know the knowledge. If they don't want to go up, it is their business. But Beelzebub did not know about the light. It is not like other demons who knew about the light before, but they are down there because they love fornication.
So most of humanity does not know anything about the light; here at least we are intellectually teaching about it, and we are giving the clues, the practices for everyone to see that.
Everything is inside and if you don't know God within you, you cannot know God outside.
