The Tree of Knowledge described by Moses is a symbol of the science of transmutation that converts a person like us into a fully developed human being, called by names like Master, angel, god, deva, etc. Such a transformation does not happen automatically or mechanically, but must be crafted through precise application of energy and awareness. Primarily, it is accomplished through a radical revision of everything within us. This lecture explains an important statement by Samael Aun Weor:
"We can experience the Being, the Innermost, only through profound meditation. The experience of the Being, the Innermost, transforms us radically... It is completely impossible to experience the Being—the Innermost, the Reality—without becoming true technical and scientific masters of that mysterious science called meditation." - Samael Aun Weor, The Spiritual Power of Sound
This is the second of two lectures. Recorded as a live, unscripted lecture at the Gnostic Retreat England 2013.
The lectures are also playing continuously on Gnostic Radio:
"Those who only preoccupy themselves with their own spiritual progress and do not work for others achieve absolutely nothing. Whosoever wants to progress must sacrifice the self for others."
