Faust: You only feel the one yearning at best,
Oh, never seek to know the other!
Two souls, alas, exist in my breast,
One separated from another:
One, with its crude love of life, just
Clings to the world, tenaciously, grips tight,
The other soars powerfully above the dust,
Into the far ancestral height.
Oh, let the spirits of the air,
Between the heavens and Earth, weaving,
Descend through the golden atmosphere,
And lead me on to new and varied being!
Yes, if a magic cloak were mine, that
Would carry me off to foreign lands,
Not for the costliest garment in my hands,
For the mantle of a king, would I resign it! - From Faust by Goethe
Attendee: Master, why does Goethe say in his work "Faust" that within the human being there are two souls: one that attracts humans to the Light, another that attracts them to animal passions?
Samael Aun Weor: When [Buddhi] the Divine Soul is already united with [Atman] the Innermost, by following the teachings that we give, a vast and great sea opens before us, because then we have to redeem [Nephesh] our Animal Soul.
The union of the Divine Soul with the Innermost only means that we have already completed our development in [Malkuth] the Earth period, but it does not mean that we have completed our [cosmic] development. Before the consciousness of each of the four inner solar bodies is assimilated by the Innermost, each of those solar bodies has to reach absolute perfection.
In the so-called "Jupiterian Age," our dense Earth will be subtle and etherized. Later, our Earth will be made of the same material as our astral body; much later our Earth will be made of the same matter of our mental body. Thus, human beings will not have absolutely perfect ethereal bodies until the end of that ethereal age of our future Earth, and our astral bodies will not have reached perfection until the end of the time when our Earth is made of astral matter, and finally today's human mind is only at the dawn of its birth; it will only have reached absolute perfection at the end of that mental era of our planet.
When the vehicles have reached perfection, the soul or consciousness of each of these instruments must be extracted and assimilated by the Innermost; then human beings will be realized as hierophants of Major Mysteries.
The First Initiation of Major Mysteries, that is, the High Initiation, is only the union of the purely Spiritual Soul [Geburah] with [Chesed] the Innermost. This purely Spiritual Soul becomes the total sum of all the fruits of our millenary experiences through innumerable reincarnations, and the one who receives the High Initiation ends his learning only as far as the terrestrial period is concerned, and as is natural, reap its ancient fruits in the form of powers and divine extracts. This [Buddhi] is our Innermost’s Diamond Soul.
The Second Initiation of Major Mysteries allows the adept to reap all the fruits of the future perfection of the ethereal body of the human being.
The Third Initiation of Major Mysteries allows the adept to reap all the perfections of the astral body, and the Fourth reaps that of the mental body of the human being.
There is a Fifth Initiation of Major Mysteries, which should not be revealed because we fail to understand. This is how we release our Animal Soul from the mud of the earth and pain. Then we will have freed ourselves from the four bodies of sin and we will be Dhyan-Chohans, that is, ineffable gods, living in the vastness of infinity.
With each of these Initiations of Major Mysteries, we acquire the wisdom corresponding to each of the great cosmic periods of the future. These same steps of improvement will be followed [very slowly in the future] by ordinary and common human beings [on the spiral path] through eternities of pain and bitterness.
Each of those five great Initiations of Major Mysteries [on the first mountain] also has nine degrees analogous to the nine Arcades [or Initiations] of Minor Mysteries [of the probationary path in Klipoth], to which most of the teachings of the masters of mysteries refer.
Many students of esotericism, such as Theosophy, spiritualism, Rosicrucianism, etc., think that in order to become an adept or mahatma, it is essential to leave the world and retreat to the snowy peaks of the Himalayas to live ascetic life, far, far from all sexual and human relationships. Those parachutes of wisdom, through their morbid fantasies, are looking to evade real life, and consolation for their pietism and vain mental elucidations, because in reality, really, humans can only unite with the Innermost by living an intensely lived life and practicing Sexual Magic with their priestly spouse.
When we say that sex is Eden itself, we do not want to speak symbolically, but literally and without metaphors of any kind. The Edenic Light floods the interplanetary spaces with a bright pink color, full of high-voltage transformative atoms, and when we connect with our priest/priestess spouse, we attract to our individual atmosphere that powerful Edenic Light that then plunges us into its ineffable ocean called Eden.
This is how we enter that beautiful garden that the Bible talks about, and we become angels. The Edenic Light is the agent of all the cosmic creations of the infinite, and this is what Einstein forgot when he launched his "Theory of Relativity." The Edenic Light is the great universal agent of life that the gods manipulate in order to elaborate their planetary creations.
Attendee: Master, when we talk about gods, readers ask me if we are polytheists.
Samael Aun Weor: Tell mankind that the gods are perfect humans, and that every human being is a chained god, a Prometheus chained to the hard rock of matter.
Attendee: Master, the concept that all monotheistic religions have is that there is only one god, eternal and imperishable. What do you say about that?
Samael Aun Weor: People are right, because the solar system in which we live, move and have our Being, is only a scale of the igneous serpent of a great being, to whom we render the same worship that the atoms of our own individual bodies render to the real Being of a human being, that is, the Innermost.
Attendee: Master, why do most people when they talk to us, they are so much interested in knowing whether or not one believes in this or that thing?
Samael Aun Weor: People thus ask for fear of losing their own beliefs, within which the minds of so many sickly mystics are caged, full of pietisms and ancient distastefulness. Gnosis is not about believing or not believing in this or that thing. What we need is to understand and discern with the scalpel of criticism, to divest things from their values and to see what they really have. Beliefs are dead forms, hard scabs to which the sanctimonious and weak adhere.
Attendee: Master, why do you hear many people speak in the following way?: “Man, my father, my mother and all my ancestors belonged to my religion, so why start thinking about other systems in order to look for God"?
Samael Aun Weor: Don't worry about it, my friend, because that clearly indicates to me that you still live depending on what people will say. Those wretched people of whom you speak deserve your compassion, for they are not guilty of their mental laziness. What happens is that these wretched people live a purely instinctual life and are only interested in eating, sleeping, and having fun. They still do not think, and cling to those traditions of their relatives precisely to avoid the work of thinking; they live in peace, happy with their purely instinctual and animal life.
Attendee: Master, why do you appear so humble, that even my attention catches me? I am used to a different social life.
Samael Aun Weor: Your question is mistaken, my friend, because I have never humbly presented myself to anyone, nor do I present myself with pride, vanity or ostentation; what happens is that I live a simple, natural life, without artifice of any kind, because I am extremely busy in the work of my own internal realizations, and, therefore, I have no time to worry about what people will say.
Attendee: Master, are you not ashamed to address the sexual issue so openly? Are you not ashamed of being branded pornographic?
Samael Aun Weor: The one who should be ashamed is you for asking me such a question. That question clearly reveals to me that you must be a fornicator, because for the pure everything is pure, and for the impure everything is impure. If I was embarrassed to discuss sexual problems, it would clearly indicate that I would also be dirty internally, but as I am clean, I speak with the naturalness that a child has to speak about what is natural.
Attendee: Master, many people would like jail for you because of what you teach...
Samael Aun Weor: Wretched people, my friend, they do not know what they have in their hands. My books The Perfect Matrimony and The Revolution of Beelzebub were written in order to form a race of gods. In them I give humanity what no one had ever given: the very keys to Eden itself. But behold, my friend, that all redeemers die crucified. Ingratitude is the currency with which the demon pays. All the elder brothers and sisters of humanity have received the worst infamies as payment for their sacrifices: Jesus Christ died crucified, Socrates poisoned with hemlock; Apollonius of Tiana, imprisoned; Joan of Arc, burned at the stake; Simón Bolívar, liberator of five republics of our continent, spent the last days of his life almost destitute, sad, and disappointed, and none of the Colombians housed him in his house for which he sacrificed, but became precisely one of the enemies against whom he fought. Gandhi, the great Mahatma, liberator of the imposing and majestic India, was shot dead by one of his own countrymen, by one of his own liberated.
So, my friend, for me it would be an honor to go to jail and even the scaffold if necessary, to save the world from pain and bitterness. You know that I am willing to sacrifice myself for humanity, until I give the last drop of blood in order to start the new age of Aquarius.
Attendee: Master, do you like communism?
Samael Aun Weor: My friend, I understand that your question is tricky. With it you try one of two: either confirm your political opinions if you are a communist, or look for a political weapon to fight me if you are not a communist.
You should know that true happiness is not found within any political system.
Communism, as an essay on the embryonic mind of today's humanity, will only fulfill its embryonic mission; but when the human mind ceases to be embryonic and mature, then communism will fail completely, as all the political systems of humanity have failed.
You will see how Russia, after winning the great battle, will divide itself by an internal political revolution, and so it will happen that the foundations of the communist building will break and the building will fall to the ground.
Attendee: Excuse me, master, to interrupt you, but it leaves me perplexed, how is it that Russia will win the present political battle and then falls divided by itself, after having won?
Samael Aun Weor: Gentleman, it seems that you had not studied universal history. Read César Cantú to get a little instruction.
Was not perhaps the old Egypt of the pharaohs, cradle of a powerful civilization, in which they drank of Solon, Pythagoras, Heraclitus of Ephesus, Aristotle, Plotinus, Parmenides, and many others? Was not Egypt the light of Greece, Persia, Assyria, Rome, Troy, Carthage, Phenicia, Attica, Macedonia, etc.? And, nevertheless, being the cradle of that ancient civilization of the zodiac sign of Taurus, being the fundamental stone or foundation of that ancient culture, dating back to a very remote time, do you not remember the event of Marc Anthony and Cleopatra? Do you ignore the decline that undermined the foundations of that archaic civilization? Didn't Egypt divide itself? Didn't it fall within itself and within its bowels struggles its fall? Were not their own children who corrupted their own people? Were they not unconsciously preparing the entrance to Darius, king of Persia?
And Jerusalem, the beloved city of the prophets, the empire of old Solomon, after having founded a powerful civilization among the countries of the crescent, Persia, Ethiopia, with those luminous ideas that flowed from the summits of Zion, was it not its own people who stoned their prophets, and ruined themselves with internal wars between the twelve tribes of Israel?
Do you think, my friend, that Nebuchadnezzar, the mighty king of Babylon, could have assaulted the sacred city of the prophets and the Temple of Solomon, if the children of Judah themselves had not been corrupted?
Do you think, my friend, that King Darius of Persia could have destroyed Babylon and killed Baltasar, son of Nebuchadnezzar, if he and his people had not been corrupted? Oh, friend, you are raw in history, but I will tell you that the “Mene, Mene, Phares Upharsin” [that is, the “Mene Tekel Phares” as contained in the scriptures] that the angel wrote in the wax on the wall, in the shining light of gold and silver candlesticks at the lavish banquet of Belshazzar, could also be applied to Russia and Rome. You will see, my friend, this prophecy proven in a short time.
Attendee: But tell me, master, how would you really define communism?
Samael Aun Weor: Communism is nothing more than a rotten bridge between two ages: one that is dying and another that wants to be born.
Attendee: Well master, what do you gain from making half of the world an enemy?
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, it seems that you are in a bad economic situation and that is why you ask me that question. I, in turn, would ask you: what do you gain from asking me such a question?
Attendee: Well, I really don't gain anything with the question; and if I asked it, it is because I admire that you, knowing in depth how humanity is, strives so hard for it.
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, you don't have to get inside my internal jurisdiction. You gain nothing by knowing what I gain; what should interest you is to know what you gain with my teachings. I assure you, my friend, that the one who gives receives, and the more one gives, the more one receives. This is a law that you can apply to yourself.
Attendee: Master, why do people when they read your teachings the only thing that they do not comprehend, is why you with your teachings, which are so admirable, indicate that with mantras or vocalization of sounds serve them to wake up sleeping inner centers, and therefore they make fun of your teachings?
Samael Aun Weor: My friend, these wretched people are ignorant, and you should know very well that ignorance is bold.
Attendee: Master, why do people strive more for urban life [city life] than for what you say and teach?
Samael Aun Weor: These wretched people are right, because urban life offers them comfort, money, pleasures, vices, games, friendships, social life, hearing bad talk about others and, in short, everything that is pleasing to their egos. On the other hand, in my teachings I do not offer you any of this, that is why the tenebrous path is easier and more comfortable, because it is wide and full of vices and pleasures.
Precisely, the same question you ask me clearly explains why human evolution failed, and humanity fell into the abyss of pain and bitterness.
Attendee: Master, why do you cure and know so much about medicine?
Samael Aun Weor: Because I know the anatomy, biology, physiology, occult chemistry, and pathology of all the seven bodies of the human being, while official science knows only the grossest body of humans. Also, no one can be a doctor if he has not been previously anointed by God. Do you know that I agree with Master Paracelsus, when he said:
Neither emperors nor popes, neither colleges nor high schools, can create physicians. They can confer privileges and cause a person who is not a physician to appear as if he were one, but they cannot cause him to be what he is not; they can give him permission to kill, but they cannot enable him to cure the sick, if he has not already been ordained by God.” - Paracelsus, Paragranum (1529)
Precisely, my book which is in circulation, will put medical science on a new basis. This book is entitled Treatise of Esoteric Medicine and Practical Magic.
Attendee: Master, if it's true that you know so much, why don't you live in Paris, London, or New York, and not among us that barely understand what you say?
Samael Aun Weor: It seems that you, friend, like comedic poses and exhibitions, the spectacular, but none of us, the members of the White Lodge, ever look for those exhibitions. In fact, we, on the contrary, like modesty and even live anonymous and unknown, but yes, sacrificing ourselves for humanity!
Attendee: Master, people do not believe in your teachings!
Samael Aun Weor: I do not care if they believe in my teachings. What interests me is that they understand my teachings, and if they do not understand them or do not want to understand them, this is because people do not have time to study them, because everyone is very busy in the work of exploiting their neighbors and satisfying their most degrading beastly pleasures. We must feel compassion for those people, my friend, for all those people will fall into the Avitchi, of which Master H. P. B. tells us in her sixth volume of The Secret Doctrine.
Attendee: Master, could you tell me who individualized the human mind?
Samael Aun Weor: With pleasure my friend, and I like your question; I see in it that you have certain spiritual yearnings.
I think you have heard of Hermes Trismegistus before, the ibis god of Thoth, worshipped by the Egyptians. And by the way, I remember now, that in Egypt there is a carving in bas relief, in which the ibis god of Thoth appears with the virile member in a state of erection and at the foot, an inscription that says: "giver of reasoning." Doesn’t it seem strange to relate Hermes to reasoning and to the virile member?
Attendee: Yes, master, I find this strange, and I do not understand.
Samael Aun Weor: The symbol speaks clearly, my friend. The Master Atom of the mind resides in the seminal system, and the one who gave this atom to us was Hermes Trismegistus, the messenger of the god Mercury. This atom is the one who gives us all of the wisdom of nature, and is the one who instructs us in the hidden wisdom as it rises to the head when we practice Sexual Magic with our spouse.
Attendee: Thank you master for your explanation but I would like for you to explain to me, who is that god Mercury of whom you speak, and please forgive me for my impertinence.
Samael Aun Weor: Do not worry my friend, I will gladly answer your question. The god Mercury is a perfect human being. His presence is really sublime. He looks like a venerable old man with a long beard, and a rosy face, the color of fire. He has his abode in a temple in the heart of the planet Mercury, and always carries a scepter, the trident of the mind, which is the same one used by the brahmins of East India. The trident symbolizes the triple play of force of the transforming atoms of the mind. The god Mercury is a stellar angel, and the planet Mercury is his physical body; he is the one who sent Hermes to our planet Earth.
Attendee: Excuse me master, to interrupt you again, but I want to ask you something very important: could one get help by invoking the god Mercury?
Samael Aun Weor: The gods are always willing to help humans, when what is requested is just.
Attendee: Master, I first of all, want to have a powerful and firm mind. Would it be possible for the god Mercury to help me?
Samael Aun Weor: Ask the god Mercury to give you "the mother of the fish." Focus on the god Mercury with all your heart and with all your soul in deep prayer for an hour, begging him to give you that mental substance so that you can acquire “firmness in your mind,” and you can be sure, my friend, that if that master considers that your request is just, he will attend to your call and place within your mental body a white ball formed of the root substance of the mental body that resides in the igneous mind of the Innermost. This monadic substance will give you mental firmness such as you never suspected. But if your request is not just, a million pleas will be to no avail.
Such a monadic substance is called "the mother of the fish,” and this reminds us of the Oannes fish and the prophet Jonah, vomited by a fish. The fish symbolizes the Innermost. Whosoever possesses that force, mother of "manas" [the mind], becomes powerful in the world of the mind; but one needs to be very worthy and very deserving to have the honor of receiving it.
A million times the unworthy could call and will not be heard.
"For the unworthy all the doors are closed, except that of repentance."
Attendee: Master, is it true what Max Heindel stated, that as soon as Jesus Christ expired, there was no darkness as the Bible says, but much light?
Samael Aun Weor: Max Heindel did not reach the High Initiation and for that reason he could not clarify this well, but a master of Major Mysteries can clarify this to you: when telling us about the event of Golgotha and affirming that at the time the Lord died the Earth was filled with darkness, the Bible is simply showing us a real and true spiritual fact that is repeated in every initiate that reaches the High Initiation, which is that at the moment one is joined to one’s Innermost, one is immersed in the deep darkness of the infinite, and illuminating oneself with one’s own spiritual oil.
The light that previously illuminated us [before the Initiation] in all the cosmic planes and in all the infinite was borrowed; that light that nourished us was the light of the gods; they were our spiritual parents, and nourished us with that light. Now [after Initiation] one has to nourish others with one’s own light.
The gods fed us, cared for us, illuminated us and nourished us in the same way that a mother does with the fruit of her womb while one grows and becomes fit to work and be a conscious citizen, but once one is capable of self-sufficiency, one no longer needs one’s "parents."
So the one who joins with the Innermost is already an Elder capable of enlightening oneself, with one’s own spiritual oil extracted from the Tree of the Science of Good and Evil, and then the gods withdraw the light they nourished one with during the state of spiritual gestation within the Blessed Mother Goddess of the World.
Thus, at birth to spiritual life, a human being already becomes a conscious citizen of the cosmos and then has to be enlightened with one’s own spiritual oil.
During the first days of the High Initiation, the master feels nostalgic like that of the youth who, leaving the paternal home for the first time, feels immersed in the big city, looking for work to get the bread. Now, there are no special considerations for him or her; now, there are only strange faces where each one is alone, where each one has to become self-sufficient. Now, I think our friend understood the hidden meaning of his question.
Attendee: Master, where do you experience the Golgotha of the High Initiation?
Samael Aun Weor: The Golgotha of the High Initiation is experienced in flesh and bone, my friend, and in this Judas, Magdalene, and Peter are never absent; and in the middle of Calvary, the disciple feels abandoned by the Innermost, and the world is no longer attractive. Then the initiate exclaims in pain, "My Father, why have you forsaken me?"
The initiate must live their own Golgotha and repeat the life of Christ within oneself, and as the soul unites with the Innermost, the initiate will rise again in the inner worlds. This initiation process is very thorough and delicate, and therefore, I can only give you a synthetic and brief answer, since it would take hours and even years to tell you about the High Initiation process. In addition, esotericism prohibits revealing the great secrets of the High Initiation to the profane.
Therefore, I only say that the Golgotha of the High Initiation is experienced in flesh and bone, and that resurrection is internal.
Attendee: Master, you told me that Golgotha is experienced in flesh and bone, and although I may seem impertinent, I want to concretely know something about your own Golgotha: who was your Judas and who were your accusers?
Samael Aun Weor: I already told you that with all the details of the High Initiation, an entire volume would be filled, but I would gladly answer your question: my Judas was a very esteemed disciple, and my accusers, it hurts to confess, that most of them were the spiritualists from Colombia, the enemies of my book "The Perfect Matrimony." They all protested against me and my work, and in the astral plane they accused me before a black magician, who was my Pilate.
If you, my friend, want to reach the High Initiation, you will have to live the whole tragedy of Golgothain flesh and bone. I already told you that the Initiation is your very life, but I can never give the profane the esoteric secrets of the High Initiation, because this would be to desecrate them. When you decide to go up to your own Golgotha, you will also have your Judas, your Pilate and your accusers.
Attendee: Master, do you believe that one, for the love of God, must endure the impertinence of his neighbors or should one defend oneself?
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, each one defends themselves with what they have more strongly: the jerk with kicks, and the wise with wisdom. The wise know how to forgive and listen with resignation to the spiteful, making him a participant in his magnanimity.
It is said that one day when Buddha was offensively insulted by a wicked, very angry and rude young man [unto whose ears came the news that Buddha did not alter or react against anything or anyone], thus, the man came up and began insulting him, saying all kinds of rude words. The Buddha was not upset by these insults and asked the young man:
“My son, if you buy a gift and bring it to someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?”
And the spiteful young man replied: “It would belong to me, because I bought the gift.”
The Buddha smiled and replied: “That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your insults. I appreciate your gift, but I cannot accept it."
Attendee: Master, what do you understand by reincarnation?
Samael Aun Weor: My friend, I understand by reincarnation, a change of clothes.
Attendee: Master, but I change my clothes every day and yet I do not understand what clothes you mean.
Samael Aun Weor: Can you tell me who you think you are?
Attendee: I am a man of flesh and blood, who has an immortal soul.
Samael Aun Weor: Alas, my friend, I am surprised that you think backwards.
Attendee: Master, tell me, why do I think backwards?
Attendee: How so, master, I never paid attention to that fact?
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, we are souls, and the body of flesh and blood is just a skin suit made by two tailors of both sexes: your father and mother. That is, the coats of skin that the Bible speaks to us. Now, friend: if a suit that you wear is damaged, what do you do after it is damaged, that is, when it becomes useless?
Attendee: Well, I simply throw it away.
Samael Aun Weor: And if you want to replace your suit, what can you do?
Attendee: Well, I go to the tailor to make me a new one, and with it I feel like new.
Samael Aun Weor: And if your skin suit gets damaged, what do you do?
Attendee: Well, master, it goes to the cemetery. Everyone knows that.
Samael Aun Weor: And if you want to replace that skin suit, where would you go?
Attendee: I do not know, master, unless you tell me.
Samael Aun Weor: My friend, I already told you that you are a soul and that your body is your suit, and that there is a need to constantly change your clothes, therefore if you want to replace that skin suit, you have to go to another pair of tailors to make another dress of flesh and bone, well made and tailored.
Attendee: But master, this is strange to me, how can another dress of flesh and blood can be made for me, explain it to me?
Samael Aun Weor: My friend, how did you get the dress of flesh and blood you have now? [the student smiled mischievously; it seems that he had remembered the sexual union of his parents. Yet, the master ignoring it, continuing]. Our friend is mischievous. [laughter in the auditorium]. In the same way that two human beings, a man and a woman, made your present body for you, in the same way, another man and another woman, will make another suit of flesh and bone for you, well made and tailored.
Attendee: Master, If I could, I would do it, but how do I become aware of myself, after I die?
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, are not you self-aware when you are without clothes, when you take them off, whether when you take a bath or just to change them?
Attendee: Of course, master, I realize that I am naked, without clothes.
Samael Aun Weor: As I explained it to you, my friend, you are a soul, and I will not get tired of explaining it to you, that the body is only your skin suit, so, there is no “death,” but simply a change of dress, a change of clothes, because the true human is the soul, and the soul lives always cognizant of its existence, thus for the soul the process of being born and dying is nothing more than a change of clothes. Thus, every woman in a state of pregnancy or with child carries within her womb the soul of a deceased; so, every child that is born carries the soul of a deceased, who “resurrects.”
The Christian Gnostics know how to enter and leave the body of flesh and blood consciously and at will, so we are not afraid of death. That is the source of our wisdom, precisely because we remember our experiences from all our past lives. That is why we cause astonishment to those who live in darkness.
Attendee: Master, how many times does one change clothes?
Samael Aun Weor: Tell me, how many times have you changed clothes in your life?
Attendee: Thousands of times; so many that I don't remember.
Samael Aun Weor: The same goes for skin clothes, my friend. If you could remember all the skin suits with which you have dressed and undressed, since the world began, you could form a mountain of corpses together with all those dresses. In the same way, if you could collect all the clothes you have worn since you were born until the current date of your life, you would also form with it a real mountain of clothes and old rags, however, you are the same, you have not changed, despite the countless amount of clothing you have worn.
We, the Gnostics, remember all our past lives and know all our future lives and know how to dress and undress at will.
Attendee: Master, and how long does it take to be dressed and undressed in skin clothes?
Samael Aun Weor: Until we reach the perfect holiness.
Attendee: Master, I love what you say, but I have a hard time leaving my sexual system because I am used to it.
Samael Aun Weor: Likewise says "Steven who likes everything even, and Todd who sees everything odd," and it is because habits are for rabbits, my friend.
Humanity took the habit of fornicating since we left Paradise, and if we want to return to Paradise again, we have to stop the habit of the rabbit, that is, we shall not fornicate.
Attendee: Master, but how one does not fornicate? I had a time when I “held out” without a woman and then at night I was overcome by pornographic dreams and nocturnal pollutions that was disqualifying me horribly, and if I had continued with my sexual abstention, I would have gone to the cemetery or to an asylum.
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, you are right, I also know the case of a religious in Cúcuta who was totally subjected to his vow of chastity and, as a consequence, his sexual glands became inflamed because these became filled up in an exaggerated manner with sperm.
You will understand that the human being eats, drinks, assimilates, and, consequently, his seminal vessels are filled with sperm, and then we explain the case of this religious one from Cúcuta; and since there were no nocturnal pollution since the religious was really chaste, doctors had to operate him in order to extract the excess of sperm. However, if that religious one had known scientific chastity, he would have become a true superhuman, a genius of God, with that amount of seminal matter stored in his glands.
But unfortunately, this knowledge about scientific chastity has been forgotten by the religious ones of our present times; and I say they have forgotten them, because the priests of early Christianity, of that Gnostic Christian religion that Peter founded in Rome, and to which all the princes of the Gnostic Catholic Church belonged, such as Tertullian, Saint Ambrose, Irine, Saint Thomas of Aquinus, San Augustíne, Origen, Carpócrates [who founded several convents in Spain], Patriarch Basilides, Mark [who took care of the Gnostic Unction]; Cerdón and many other early Christians who thoroughly knew Christianity and its secrets, thoroughly practiced scientific chastity; that is, the Sexual Magic that we preach, propagate and spread, for the good of humanity and for the greater glory of God.
Attendee: Master, I would like you to tell me, what is the relationship between the seven chakras of the astral body and the seven churches?
Samael Aun Weor: The seven chakras of the astral body, the endocrine glands and their ethereal and mental correspondences, are only the purely animal exponents of the seven suns of the Innermost. These seven suns of the innermost reside in his Diamond Soul.
So, when we say that the Kundalini opens the seven churches under the direction of the Innermost, we are talking about the christification of the Diamond Soul, who has to light its seven suns and become totally christified in order to merge with her Innermost.
Brahma's eye has the figure of a bright white star that the master wears on his divine forehead. Brahma's ear is a yellow white sun that the master carries in his creative larynx. Brahma's heart shines with the colors white and divine blue, in the heart of the master. And in the navel of Brahma the solar fire shines, and finally, the other three centers of Brahma shine like ineffable suns.
The Innermost has its seven churches in his Diamond Soul, and the astral chakras are only its animal exponents; something like the shadow of the seven suns of the Innermost.
We Gnostics are not interested in the lower psychism or the astral chakras of the animal soul, we are only interested in the Diamond Soul and the Innermost. We are only interested in the superlative powers of our consciousness; we must put an end to the animal soul process, and heroically extract the psychic extracts from our lower bodies in order to assimilate those psychic extracts within our Diamond Soul and self-realize each one of us as a Brahmin, as Dhyan-Chohans, as a Solar Pitri.
The Diamond Soul is the Buddhic or intuitional body; it is the body of the spirit of life; it is the soul-spirit; it is Buddhi, the superlative consciousness of the Being, and although the astral chakras rotate and shine, they are nothing but simple and miserable spark plugs when comparing them with the ineffable glow of the seven churches that the Innermost has located in its Diamond Soul. Blessed is the one who becomes liberated from the bodies of sin!
Attendee: Tell me master, in short, how do you define evolution?
Attendee: Master, I do not understand life but on the basis of numbers, so from a mathematical point of view, could you tell me, what is death?
Samael Aun Weor: Death is nothing more than a subtraction of fractions. Could the gentleman answer me what remains after a subtraction of fractions has been made?
Attendee: The values remain!
Attendee: Master, I have a formidable hypnotic power. I have managed to bring many people to catalepsy. With my hypnotic strength I break a light bulb, and I have done wonders. How do you see my triumphs?
Samael Aun Weor: My friend, that vital force that you sadly spend on those deplorable spectacles, which lead to nothing, should rather be used in the practice of inner meditation and in efforts of incessant overcomings. Hypnotic phenomena are works of the inferior psychism of the animal soul.
You should know that no comprehensive disciple of the masters will ever deal with those things.
We have two souls: one divine and the other animal. The first brings us to the Innermost; the second, towards purely animal passions, and towards the inferior psychism like hypnotism, mesmerism, etc.
Attendee: Master, you surprise me. So what do you advise?
Samael Aun Weor: I advise you, my friend, to make a total sum of all your own defects and then finish with all of them, one at a time, dedicating two months to each defect, because the one who tries to end all his defects at once, looks like the hunter who wants to hunt ten hares at the same time; thus, he doesn't hunt any.
This effort of incessant purification, together with the daily practices of Sexual Magic and inner meditation, will lead you to the Golgotha of the High Initiation, where you will be united with your Innermost and become an angel.
This work of spiritual self-empowerment and superlative improvement is much more important than cultivating the dark powers of the animal soul and the inferior psychism. Those practices of hypnotism, mesmerism, spiritualism, etc., only lead to ruin and moral degeneration to those who practice them.
A Solar Logos is the outcome of millenarian purifications, and each of us is called to be a Solar Logos, a god.
Attendee: Master, I want to have great powers, so what can I do?
Samael Aun Weor: Do not crave powers; they are flowers of the soul that are born when we have totally sanctified ourselves.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” - Matthew 6: 33
This subject-matter of craving for powers has led many people to black magic and mental institutions. We Gnostics do not crave powers; instead we prepare ourselves to receive them through incessant purifications.
Attendee: Master, what is the mantra to awaken intuition?
Samael Aun Weor: The mantra to awaken intuition is written like this: Om Mani Padme Hum, and it is pronounced like this: OM MASI PADME YOM. In other words, syllable each letter like this: OOOMMM MMMAAASSSIII PAAADMMMEEE YOOOMMM and means: “I am in you and you are in me. I am the lotus jewel and I will remain in it.” This is a prayer to the Innermost, who is our Father who is in secret, our individual Spirit, our real Being.
In Christian language, Om Masi Padme Yom could be associated itself with the seventh sentence pronounced by Master Jesus in Golgotha: “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” Om Masi Padme Yom must be pronounced with the heart, and submerged in deep absorption, worshiping the Innermost, loving the Innermost, in deep meditation... And so the intuition will awaken, and the Christian will learn to converse with the Father who is in secret.
Attendee: Could the Master explain something about the coming of the Holy Spirit and Pentecost?
Samael Aun Weor: With pleasure, my friend. By carefully observing the Bible, we will see that the event of Pentecost in which the apostles received the Holy Spirit, came after the sacrifice of Golgotha, and this is very significant. The Gnostic who has already passed through the Golgotha of High Initiation must continue practicing Sexual Magic with their priest/priestess spouse, for two reasons: one, to maintain the harmony of the home, because the sexual relationship between husband and wife is indispensable; this is understood by any person who lives married life. The other, to receive the Holy Spirit of Pentecost. The fire of the Kundalini is the fire of the Holy Spirit, and after breaking through the upper part of the skull through a certain ethereal hole that is always closed in ordinary people, it projects outwards. When through supreme efforts of Sexual Magic the fire of the Kundalini leaves the human body, then it assumes the figure of a white dove amidst a blue flame. That white dove is the Holy Spirit who enlightens us with the omniscience of the sacred fire of the Kundalini.
I have already explained that the Kundalini is the fire of the Holy Spirit. Upon receiving the Holy Spirit, the Kundalini becomes the omniscient instructor of the master, wisely guiding, and the master becomes the child of the Holy Spirit because of being a child of Sexual Magic, therefore the Holy Spirit appeared in the form of a dove above the Christ at the moment he was baptized in the Jordan, and therefore, said:
"This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased." - Matthew 3:17
That white dove floats above the head of every master, and teaches and guides with its omniscience, and thus the Kundalini becomes an instructor when we have completely mastered the beast.
When the Kundalini fire projects out of the physical body, Jehovah gives the master a deeply symbolic sacred jewel.
Let us read:
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” - Acts: 2: 1-4
Thus, the master is a child of the Holy Spirit, the child of the sexual force, the child of the igneous serpent, the Kundalini.
When the fire of the Holy Spirit ignites the atoms of language located in the seminal region, the master receives the gift of tongues, and thus the utterance of all languages of the world.
The great clairvoyants can see that on the head of every master there is a blue flame, and amidst that flame the figure of a white dove.
The omniscient atoms of the Holy Spirit, or sexual energy called Kundalini in the East, assume the beautiful figure of the white dove, to illuminate and guide the master.
Thus, the master is the son of the Kundalini. The master is the son of sexual energy. The master is the son of the Holy Spirit. And he exclaimed:
"This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." - Matthew 3: 17
Attendee: Master, I am first and foremost a practical man, and above all, what I need is money, because I have come to the conviction that without money you cannot live. I would accept your teachings if they served me to get money and more money.
Samael Aun Weor: I do not understand why the gentleman dares to call himself a "practical man" just because he loves money so much. Can one be called "practical" when creating so many problems?
Attendee: Master, with money there are no problems.
Samael Aun Weor: If money does not create problems, then why does the world, having so much money, have so many problems? Can one be called a "practical man" who spends a life accumulating money, since after all one cannot take it to the grave, but rather, his treasure comes to serve, to bring conflict between his heirs? Do you not know that the money that is accumulated with so much effort and deprivation dies with its owner, since it passes to the power of other hands, which belong generally to the eyes of those who have been looking at it with greed and who then spend it with contempt? Can this be called practical?
Attendee: Master, I always like what makes me happy and fun, and your teachings, frankly, neither distract me nor amuse me. Because, if I want to laugh, I go to the cinema to see a movie of Cantinflas; if I want to know the information of the moment, I read the newspaper; if I want erudition, I read the Encyclopedic Dictionary. So, I get distracted, I inform myself and get erudition. So why would I want your teachings?
Samael Aun Weor: Gentleman, I understand that what interests you is to have fun; yet, regarding amusements, I see that you are not an expert, because if you were an expert in entertainment, you would have already discovered the trick behind all those comedic poses; consequently, you would no longer laugh, but rather feel compassion for the person delivering the antics. You would have discovered that in the soul of that comedian is enclosed the pain that accompanies every human being, and the poses that he gives you has no other objective than the profit that the actor seeks, God knows, to solve how many problems and how many tragedies of his private life.
Can you see that you are not an expert in amusements, nor do you know how to have fun. If you knew how to have fun, your recreation would be with the music of Chopin, Beethoven, or Liszt, and you would really enjoy reading Shakespeare's Hamlet, Goethe's Faust... then you would be an expert in amusements, because you would learn to smile with the occurrences of Mephistopheles or with the Hunchback of Paris or with those caricatures of Molière, while now you only know how to laugh as the great poet Julio Flores said: “Like a madman to tie, like an idiot."
Attendee: Master, the spiritual life is very beautiful. But with life so difficult and so hard, one first has to deal with their spouse and children, and this does not allow one to devote oneself to the spiritual life that you preach.
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, you are making a very serious mistake by wanting to establish a chasm between spiritual and material life. This is because the gentleman does not realize that daily life with its brutal work is precisely the workshop of the Innermost, and the wonderful school where the soul acquires and perfects all its faculties. The one who despises this wonderful school [of daily life] is not spiritual.
Attendee: In the pages of your book The Perfect Matrimony, why do you say that there are unredeemable souls? I tell you that if God creates souls so that they are not saved, that God would be bad, which is not so. As you will see, your assertion is very bad.
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, a master reveals his experiences, that is, what he sees, touches, and feels, so that others like him will do the same.
You have your reasons and reveal them, and you could even convince thousands of listeners of what you affirm, but the world continues the same, nothing changes, because you and those who follow you believe they are in the right. For the moment I limit myself to tell you that "reasoning" is an instrument of the animal soul, and as such presents conclusive arguments and forms that seem true. Real is what one experiences for oneself. No one can experience reasoning or theories, nor vain insubstantial words of ambiguous chatter.
The master is an immovable stone, therefore he exposes the truth and is silent, leaving to others the work of meditating upon it and even fighting what he affirms.
The intellectual plays with reasoning and words, like a child with his toys, but the stone of truth does not play; she is the fundamental basis of wisdom.
The truth is the Philosophical Stone, and the Philosophical Stone is the Innermost of the human being. Therefore, Christ said to Peter:
"Thou art Simon the son of Jonah: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.... thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church."
Christ did not say that his church would be based on the bodies: astral (desire), vital, physical, or intellectual that belongs to the mental body, but "on the stone," that is, on the Innermost.
Now, if you want to confirm (I do not say to evidence, because you have not yet positively awakened your internal faculties) what I affirm on the pages of The Perfect Matrimony, let us read the holy scriptures:
“Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
“When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
“But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.” - Luke 13: 23-28
The interpretation that we give to this reliable document is wisely corroborated by Master Blavatsky in the last pages of the sixth volume of “The Secret Doctrine," when she talks about Avitchi.
Attendee: Master, I would like you to tell me clearly what is saved from the lost souls when they fall into the abyss?
Samael Aun Weor: I will gladly answer your question. When demon-souls fall into the abyss, only their real Being, formed by Atman-Buddhi, is saved, but their psychological "I" disintegrates in the abyss over the aeons and through the centuries, and in a slow and terrible way, enduring the most frightful anguish between crying and gnashing of teeth. That is the horrible end of the infernal souls.
The end of the evil souls is horrible: darkness, crying, and despair; that is their disastrous end. From that horrible misfortune only the Innermost is saved, that is, the Spirit, Atman-Buddhi (speaking in Eastern language). These two superior principles of humans are eternal, but nowadays there are many infernal souls in flesh and blood already completely separated from their real Being, and many of those evil souls have a brilliant intellectuality.
There are ladies of extraordinary beauty and distinguished gentlemen of high society who are already totally separated from their Innermost; after they die those kind of people will go to the abyss immediately, without consideration. That is the Second Death of which the Apocalypse (Revelation) speaks to us. And novenas or requiem masses will be of no avail to them, because the abyss is the abyss.
Attendee: Master, why don't you need reference books to write, nor Encyclopedic Dictionaries, nor you have any personal library to write?
Samael Aun Weor: Because I am not an intellectual, nor do I want to be. The intellect is totally deficient as a cognitive faculty. The intellect thrives on objective sensory perceptions, and with those sensations it elaborates its conceptual content (from what its sensations contain).
If the human being had all his senses developed, he would abandon the intellect, because he would realize exactly that intellectual information is limited and is only based on five of the twelve senses that the human being has. Since the human being is still an embryo, he uses the intellect as a source of cognitive information, but those of us who have already developed the remaining seven senses do not need the intellect at all, and we look at the intellectuals with pity; for us occultist gnostics, the intellectuals are something like elementary schools, like the perfume of the past, like the blurry images of our grandparents.
Attendee: Master, in your teachings you give the feeling that in the astral light is written the true story of everything that happens in the great theater of the universe, and that with our astral body we can evidence it. Is this so?
Samael Aun Weor: Actually, the astral light is the repository of all forms of Nature, past, present and future, and we can certainly evidence it if we learn to move consciously with the astral body; but these things, my friend, really are not for these times, because the people of these times believe only in meat, tallow, and butter, because they buy and sell it. It happens that they look down on the astral body and consider it as a remnant of the past, as something unimportant.
Attendee: And what do you say master?
Samael Aun Weor: Nature does nothing useless, my friend. Truly, it is shameful to think how these people who call themselves spiritualists despise the magnificent works of the Creator. In India, for example, there are morbid ascetics that dwell in the deepest forests and torture their physical bodies, and despise them, and even become eunuchs so as not to feel passionate desires; other morbid mystics are thrown into the Ganges River and perish drowned, and others are thrown under the great wheels of the cars of the gods during the processions of Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma, by said contempt of the physical body, and thus, in this negative way, attempt to liberate themselves. As for the schools of the west, they similarly, make these same mistakes when they despise their astral organism.
We, the Gnostics, are really positivists, and know that Nature does nothing useless, thus, we develop, take care, and perfect the seven wonderful instruments of the human being, in order to extract from them, in the form of psychic extracts, the maximum benefit and the deepest wisdom.
Attendee: On what revelation or theosophy do you base your doctrine?
Samael Aun Weor: The gentleman, in the same formulated question, has the answer; consequently, my doctrine is based on the revealed knowledge that anyone can obtain from their inner master (the Innermost).
This divine knowledge is called "theosophy," that is, divine wisdom. "Theo" means "God," and "sophia," "wisdom."
Meditation constitutes our technique, and whosoever becomes an athlete in meditation can obtain the revealed knowledge or theosophy. And it is in this kind of inner knowledge that I base my doctrine, which can be obtained, directly, by everyone who takes the job of developing the superlative faculties of the Being, through the scientific technique of meditation.
Please do not confuse the theosophy on which I base my doctrine with that scholastic and morbid theosophism.
This "theosophy or divine wisdom" is not my exclusive property, since everyone can acquire it on their own and without the need of my personal intervention, because it is cosmic and universal, and the Innermost of each person is the zealous guardian of that archaic wisdom. The important thing is to become an athlete of meditation in order to receive that knowledge directly from one's own inner master, that is, from one’s Innermost.
Attendee: With what authority do you preach such teachings?
Samael Aun Weor: Sir, while a human being is coercing his mind with the complex of authority and tradition, he will be a slave. These complexes are obstacles that incapacitate the mind to understand free life in its movement. Authority and tradition constitute stony benches to which the ship of mind is anchored, and it is incapable of thinking for itself and of understanding itself and even incapacitates itself as a conscious instrument of the Being.
As long as the mind of the human being is entangled within complexes of authority and tradition, the human being will be a slave to the past and cannot comprehend the eternal moment of life free in his movement.
Authority is exploitation, and if the gentleman defends any authority and advocates it, there is exploitation. The one who develops intuition, the one who awakens the superlative faculties of the consciousness, receives divine knowledge and does not need to establish his/her self in the old-fashioned banks of supposed authorities.
Attendee: How do you explain the very creation of God and the universe, since souls were created by a supreme being, and cannot be particles of divinity because the created cannot be a creator?
Samael Aun Weor: The gentleman is confusing the soul with the spirit. A soul is attained and a spirit is. It would be better to affirm that the spirit is a fragment or particle of a particular divinity, because the former is solidly based on cosmic consciousness, which is inherent to life, as humidity is inherent to water, while the latter would be an anthropomorphization of the divine in the form of a particularized god, which would be idolatry.
Souls have never been created by a supreme being; they are simply the result of millenarian experiences that the spirit has acquired through the ages, in other words, the cognizant extract of all the experiences acquired by the spirit, through increasingly perfect forms within an eternal moment.
The gentleman asks in his question, a distinction between creation and creator, which is manifestly absurd, because creating means doing something new, and Solomon says "Nil novi sub sole" (there is nothing new under the Sun). There is no creation; what exists is transformation. Each fragment of the Absolute in us aspires to know itself, and this knowledge of oneself is realized through the incessant experiences of life, by means of which the spirit acquires self-cognizance, that is: soul. And when this soul has already reached the summum of all perfections, then it is absorbed by the Innermost who becomes for that reason a master of the cosmos.
Samael Aun Weor: Gentleman: biologists know the biomechanics of organic phenomena, but... what do they know about the vital depth? We know in depth the vital principles of the human organism and the most diverse functions of the consciousness; we never confuse the vital principles with the values of the consciousness; but we do know in depth the interrelationships between the values of the consciousness, the vital principles and hormones. For example: A lover exalts his inner energetism or vital principles by acting through them on the substances of the endocrine glands, producing a large amount of genes and chromosomes, which ultimately come to be converted into spermatozoa.
The lover, due to the exaltation of his inner energetism, subconsciously stimulates his endocrine glands towards a superfunction, the result of which is a great hormonal production.
Thus, we see, often, a decrepit old man filled with freshness and vitality after being in love, and this is due to the overproduction of hormones that have entered the bloodstream, thanks to the exaltation of his vital principles, during the euphoria of these transcendental values of the soul or consciousness of a lover. The values of the consciousness are, therefore, of the soul and not of the vital principles that animate the organism.
Attendee: When the human species is extinguished by cooling of the Sun or by the Earth's collision with a star, souls, as particles of God, where do they go when they are not reincarnated?
Samael Aun Weor: Gentleman, scientists affirm that the Sun is cooling and if so, the day would come when the Earth would cool completely and the human race would die out. But that is not the case, the Sun is not cooling, what is happening is that it is being etherealized and subtilized simultaneously with the Earth, because it is also being etherealized and subtilized together with all the living beings living in it. This is known by ranchers and farmers who live in closer contact with Nature. Today's cattle do not have the same weight and volume than 50 or 100 years ago, likewise the banana plants or other agricultural products, they do not have the same volume.
When Christ disembodied in Golgotha, he penetrated to the heart of the Earth and took it as a body, and that was the cause of the earthquake of that Good Friday, because the astral body of Christ collided with the astral body of the Earth and the outcome of it was the earthquake. Since that day, Christ is etherealizing and subtilizing the Earth with the electromagnetic rays of the aurora borealis. The Earth is the body of Christ.
These rays leave the heart of the Earth, and are the rays of the Christ. The ether will inundate the air and then all this that I preconize today will become visible and tangible in the air for the entire world.
The blue of the sky, and the blue that we see in the distant mountains, is ether. Hard rocks and gigantic mountains, deep valleys and immense seas are being transmuted into this element of nature, ether. The same body of humans and the bodies of all the species that populate the planet, will be totally etherealized, and this is why the apostle John in the Apocalypse (Revelation) speaks of the heavenly Jerusalem. This heavenly Jerusalem will be our ethereal Earth of the future, which will have the same blue color that we see in the distant mountains.
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” - Revelation 21: 1-2
At that time, the light of the sun will be unnecessary for us, because each one will be illuminated with their own spiritual oil.
“And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” - Revelation 22: 5
The Earth is therefore the physical body of a great genie (the Christ). Now the gentleman who asked me this question will explain to himself why it is impossible for the Earth to collide with another celestial body in space.
Each star in space is the physical and material organism of a star angel, therefore, it is impossible for the Earth to collide; if that were possible, it would have already collided; having passed so many millions of years.
Attendee: Where do the evil souls go after death? Since Jesus said: "Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise." He also said: "and cast him into outer darkness." Thus Jesus denies reincarnation. What can you say about this, master?
Samael Aun Weor: There is no such death for the souls nor do they go anywhere. That problematic "beyond" has been a puzzle for many, and under the cover of that problem, innumerable religious sects have emerged with all their most diverse forms of exploitation.
There is no such "beyond." Infinity and eternity are within ourselves, here and now. Life is always an eternal moment, where neither time nor space exist. It is we ourselves who have divided the eternal moment of life between a past and a future.
Outer space is also another illusion because everything is within ourselves here and now.
Mr. Emmanuel Kant, the great German philosopher, said in his "Critique of Pure Reasoning":
"The exterior is the reflection of the interior."
So, philosophically speaking, I can answer your question by telling you that evil souls submerge themselves within the black moon, for nothing is outside; everything is within ourselves. "The exterior is the interior."
When a soul leaves the body, it only enters within itself, here and now. When the chemistry of the sun's rays makes the ether of the atmosphere visible, then the souls of the dead will be visible, tangible to everyone, and consequently, fruitful business in the shadow of the problematic "beyond" will go out of fashion.
When Christ in Golgotha said to the good thief, "Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise," he did not take into account the concept of time, invented by ignoramuses. To understand the answer that Christ gave to the good thief, let us read:
“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God.” - Revelation 11: 15, 16
Now, to understand the meaning of the plea made by the good thief, let us read:
“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.” - Luke 23: 42
The good thief said: "when thou comest into thy kingdom"; he did not say “when thou go to your kingdom," but “when thou comest into thy Kingdom." What Kingdom was the good thief referring to?
Revelation answers: "Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned." - Revelation 11: 17
Through these biblical verses we realize exactly the words of the good thief: "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom" and the wise answer of the Master was: "Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise." With this the good thief proves that he knew reincarnation, and that he did not ignore that the master would return in an ethereal body to his kingdom: the ethereal Earth of the future.
The good thief knew the light of reincarnation and knew that the Christ had to return to "his Kingdom": the ethereal Earth, "the New Jerusalem," and this is why he asked the master for help.
If we do abstraction of the concept of time, the very fact of totally repenting means being "today in Paradise." We can return "right now to Paradise."
The return, reincarnation or reincarnification was known by all ancient peoples, and Christ secretly taught it to his 70 disciples and confirmed it publicly, let us read:
“And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elijah must first come?” - Matthew 17: 10
By this question we can understand that the scribes awaited Elijah again, that is, they waited for Elijah to be reincarnated or reincarnificated again. That is, the scribes knew the light of reincarnation, as can be seen from the verse in question.
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elijah is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.” - Matthew 17: 11-13
Through these verses we realize that the disciples understood that he spoke to them about John the Baptist, that is, Christ explained to them that Elijah had already returned and that he was John the Baptist himself. John the Baptist, then, is Elijah himself, reincarnated again.
The gentleman who asked me the question has no solid relation to his question.
I am a mathematician when investigating, and exacting in the expression.
Attendee: If souls are particles or parts of God and are punished, then God punishes himself. God gives to the soul, as a particle of himself, free will and punishes evil actions. How do you see these self-punishments?
Samael Aun Weor: Gentleman, God wants happiness for his children, and since he does not want them slaves, he gives them free will. But is it God’s fault, for example, if you take a sunbath and thereafter you get a heat stroke? Is it God’s fault if the gentleman drinks a few beers and then, drunk, falls and breaks a leg? Is it God’s fault for you to take an excessively long bath and catch a cold?
Violation of all natural law brings pain, and God is not guilty for his children violating his laws. Every cause produces its inevitable effect, and bad causes produce bad effects.
The human being lives conditioning himself daily with his own acts, and each reincarnation is a repetition of the past reincarnation, plus the good and bad consequences of past acts and thoughts. No one traces our destiny to us, we are the authors of our destinies, and the "agents of the world government," or lords of destiny, are merely the judges of the law.
Attendee: I have heard about many gods. This is polytheism. God said: "Thou shalt not have other gods before me." Isis, Mars, Mercury and others are gods of the Greco-Latin fable. If Mercury is a god, then the Earth could be a goddess.
Samael Aun Weor: Sir, I already said that the Earth is the body of a great being that is the Christ. I also affirmed that each star in the sky is the physical body of a stellar angel or planetary god. And this same law can also be applied to the atom, since each atom is a trio of matter, energy, and consciousness, as well as each star in space.
"As above, so below." The law of correspondences and analogies between the macrocosm and the microcosm reigns throughout the universe.
Therefore, each atom, each human being and each star, has body, soul and spirit. This is a cosmic law, the trinity is the basis of cosmicity.
The atom wants to be a human being, and a human being wants to be a star, and thus lives life in an eternal infinite progress within the eternal now. We are foci of consciousness that aspire to be increasingly great within the great consciousness.
I see that the gentleman speaks disparagingly of myths without ever having analyzed them, much less comprehended. A myth is a sacred chest within which great cosmic truths are enclosed. Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Moon and Sun, are simply the bodies of seven spirits that are before God's throne (the Logos of our Solar System).
"John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne." - Revelation 1: 4
“And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. ” - Revelation 1: 16
We call these seven angels "gods," because they are infinitely superior to the human being, although they were also humans from other cosmic manifestations.
Attendee: Every religion has its doctrine’s body: Christianity has the Creed, and as a prayer, the Our Father. What is the doctrine’s body of your religion?
Samael Aun Weor: Gentleman, I have not come to found any religion, and the body of the doctrine that I preach is the same human being, and the doctrine that I teach is within the same human being. I have already given humanity two books: "The Perfect Matrimony" and "The Revolution of Beelzebub." Whoever patiently submits to the practices that I give in these books will be able to see and touch everything that I teach publicly, because the doctrine that I advocate is within the same human being. Unfortunately, present humans only think of exploiting their neighbors, and it does not occur to anyone of them to exploit themselves. The human being who learns to exploit himself becomes a god.
This doctrine is sent to you by the White Lodge. I, Samael Aun Weor, am a master and messenger of the White Lodge, which is the College of Initiates to which the elders of humanity belong, namely Christ, Buddha, Muhammad, Gandhi, Francis of Assisi, Anthony of Padua, Lao T'se, Rama, Krishna, Joan of Arc, Count St. Germain, Paracelsus, Kuthumi, who is, Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, etc.
Attendee: Could the master tell me what is his concept about astrology?
Samael Aun Weor: With pleasure, gentleman: Astrology is only the physical body of Astro-theurgy.
Astrology is to Astro-theurgy what the physical body is to the Innermost.
Iamblicus, the great theurgist, invoked the planetary gods and materialized them on the physical plane in order to speak with them.
At the core of every star or planet, there is a temple where the star angel or planetary god dwells and works, for each star is the physical body of a star angel. If the Gnostic wants to learn to converse with the planetary gods, he needs to awaken the superlative powers of the consciousness through the most severe practices of inner meditation.
Through the august interior contemplation we actualize the powers of our buddhic or intuitional principle, and thus, stripped from our animal soul we enter the temples of the planetary gods, and learn from them the sidereal and astro-chemical wisdom that allows the gods to work in the great alchemist laboratory of nature, transmuting forces and updating cosmic events within the sidereal clock.
Astrologers know how the stellar gods walk, but they do not know how the stellar gods work.
Astrologers are whimsical, totally superficial, because only know how to monitor the steps of others and the outside of others. But what do astrologers know about the divine powers of the star angels? What do astrologers know about the chemistry of sidereal rays that transmutes essences and causes changes and events? Let the astrologers know, and let them know it right now, that we, the masters of the White Fraternity, work in this great factory of God under the personal direction of the planetary gods, and that the events that take place in the physical world are only the outcome of the theurgy and astro-chemistry that we manipulate in the internal worlds in order to drive the spiral evolution of life.
I, Samael Aun Weor, am the great avatar of Aquarius, but I have to strictly obey the orders of a great planetary angel who dwells in the heart temple of a star of the firmament; without him, I could do nothing. Hierarchy is the basis of order.
Revelation, the Apocalypse, clearly tells us about that sidereal angel that is transforming the world into the following verses:
“And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.” - Revelation 19: 17, 18
This supper means "war," this supper means "abyss," this fulfills the end of this false civilization, at the end of the twentieth century; and the rider of the white horse from chapter 19: 11 of Revelation, faithfully fulfills the orders of that sidereal angel.
Attendee: Master, you say that humans have two souls, one spiritual and the other animal; You also tells us that in the High Initiation the spiritual soul unites to the Innermost. So, I would like to know, what happens to the Animal Soul?
Samael Aun Weor: When the Spiritual Soul unites to the Innermost, the most terrible and overwhelming task is presented before us, which is to redeem our animal soul. The summum of all the psychic essences of the animal soul must be liberated and extracted with heroism; the quintessence of each of the bodies of sin must be extracted, and this work is extremely arduous, because human evil has such deep roots that the most severe ordeals are needed in order to totally extinguish those deep roots of the evil that abides within us.
This meticulous and difficult work is done through the great Initiations of Major Mysteries, where only the terror of love and law reigns. The human state [in Lemurian times] has left such deep, ancient, and bad traces in us that really the most terrible purifications are needed in order to totally remove them from us, even the finest and deepest roots of evil, in order to heroically extract the quintessence and most delicate psychic essences from our wretched animal soul. And I say "wretched animal soul" because indeed it deserves compassion, even if it is very intellectual and expresses itself with elegance; it is always the "donkey" Christ mounted to enter Jerusalem. It suffers the unspeakable and will suffer more until we liberate it from the bodies of sin and pain. Let it be known, my friend, that the intellect and desires are of the animal soul.
Now I think you will comprehend why we do not give importance to the intellect, nor to intellectualism. The "donkey" is the animal that suffers the most, my friend. Therefore, this is why I say "wretched animal soul." The "donkey" always symbolizes the animal soul. Speaking now symbolically, I will tell you that in order to be united with our Innermost, we have to ride the "donkey," and in order to be united with the "Glorian," we have to transform the "donkey" into a human being. "Here is wisdom, and whosoever has understanding, let him understand!"
Attendee: Master, the divine redeemer told us:
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." - Matthew 7 1, 2.
Could you tell us how do we pay for bad actions?
Samael Aun Weor: There has always been a “great world government” directing the destinies of the world, and this world government has its constitution and its laws. The constitution of this world government is divine wisdom, and its laws are the laws of nature, which constitute the most perfect code of justice. This great world government is the White Lodge, and its decrees are irrevocable.
The courts of justice of this great government punish and reward according to the cosmic justice; thus everything evil that is done by us shall be done to us in return.
Nations, peoples and humans are severely guarded by the agents of this great world government.
Attendee: Master, I have not been bad and yet I have suffered a lot. Why?
Samael Aun Weor: Friend, in your past reincarnation you committed very serious faults and now you have no choice but to pay for them; the world government agents found faults in your book. All the acts of our life, are rigorously noted in the books of the world government, thus after death we have no choice but to bear the weight of justice, and when we get dressed again with a body of flesh and blood, it is our turn to bear the weight of divine justice.
Now my listeners will comprehend why many people suffer.
Attendee: Master, but why do I have to pay for what another person has done?
Samael Aun Weor: So, my friend, you think that just because you wear a new suit, you no longer have to pay the money you owe, since you feel you are another person. Friend, the true human is the soul; and the body is nothing more than the skin suit.
What happens is that as souls we undress when we physically die, and we get dressed again when we physically are born again. We all are resurrected dead, and we have no choice but to pay what we owe.
There is no such death, my friend; what there is is a change of clothes. Life lives sprouting again everywhere, and every born child is a defunct who is resurrected; any child is the soul of a deceased dressed with the body of a child, the soul comes to pay the bills she owes, because she has no choice.
We live by conditioning ourselves daily with our own actions. This is what in the east is called "karma." But, as serious as our karma is, we can free ourselves from that chain at the moment we merge with the Innermost, because when an inferior law is transcended by a superior law, the superior law washes away the inferior law.
Attendee: Master, I am in a very serious problem. I have two women and with both I have children. What can I do?
Samael Aun Weor: My friend, no disciple of the masters can ever be an adulterer and, besides, he has to be honest with himself. No man can love two women at the same time. But generally, compassion is confused with love; in these cases the repentant adulterer must discern between what is compassion and what is love.
If you want to get out of the moral problem you are in, I advise you to make your home with the woman you love, and remain compassionate with the one you feel compassion for. To the one you love, make her a priestess-wife, and the other, help her financially and continue with the economic duties that you created yourself. But be compassionate, my friend, help her, but do not deceive her; it is better for you to disappoint her at once and not to continue killing her with a wooden knife.
In these cases, help from afar is usually better, because the meeting of two beings who had affection is painful. But if the person for whom you feel mercy has enough economic possibilities to live well, then do not continue to harm her, my friend. In this case it is free; retire and make your home with the woman you love.
Samael Aun Weor: The spiritual soul or diamond soul is our exalting and dignifying consciousness, it is the vehicle of the most diverse functionalisms of the consciousness, whose physical instrument is the heart; it is divine intuition. There is a need to prepare and update the most diverse functionalisms of the superlative consciousness of the Being; this is achieved through the practices of inner meditation on the Innermost.
Concentration, meditation, and adoration to the Innermost are the three scales that lead to the actualization of the superlative powers of the diamond soul, or spiritual soul. She is the fiancé of the Innermost and must be prepared for the "great wedding" through the practices of inner meditation, sexual magic, and perfect holiness.
After having trained in the astral body, the disciple must then learn how to function as a spiritual soul, free from the bodies of sin. These bodies of sin are the lower vehicles of the animal soul. Then it will be necessary for the disciple to learn to voluntarily divest from the astral, mental and causal bodies in order to freely function as a spiritual soul in the higher worlds of consciousness. The key to this is very simple: The disciple, already practical, momentarily abandons the physical body in order to move in the astral body. Once in the astral body and within the astral plane, one must abandon all desire and feel as a child, and then, armed with a strong will, order the astral body as follows, "Astral body, get out of me." This order must be accompanied by the action, and the disciple will proceed vigorously by shedding this vehicle and throwing it out of oneself, through the spinal column, that is, backwards, and indeed, the astral body will leave the disciple through certain atomic gates located in the spinal column. This same process will then be applied to the mental body and then to the body of willpower. Thus, the spiritual soul, free from the bodies of sin, will be able to happily and consciously function in all planes of consciousness, to visit nirvana and to quickly prepare for the "great wedding."
The disciple, in addition to his esoteric practices, will need to subject himself to the most severe and successive purifications. He will need to totally sanctify and completely sacrifice himself for mankind, otherwise he will not make any progress.
Those who find it difficult to travel in the astral body, let them to fully practice the internal meditation exercises until they achieve the awakening of their consciousness and the actualization of the superlative powers of the diamond soul, and thus, they will also learn how to move at will in their diamond soul, free from the bodies of sin and the animal soul that expresses itself within them.
The diamond soul must learn how to move within the starry heavens of Urania, free from the bodies of sin.
OM MASI PADME YOM ("You are the jewel of the lotus and I will remain in you. "I am in you, and you are in me"). This is the mantra of intuition, this is the mantra of the diamond soul, this is the mantra of the inner meditation on the Being.
The diamond soul is the wife of the Innermost, it is the beautiful Sulamite of the Song of Songs, it is the eternal bride, and the Innermost loves and adores her and sings to her in the following way:
“Thou art beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners.
Turn away thine eyes from me, for they have overcome me: thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead.
Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them.
As a piece of a pomegranate are thy temples within thy locks.
There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins without number.
My dove, my undefiled is but one; she is the only one of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.
Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?
I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley, and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranates budded. Or ever I was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib.
Return, return, O Shulamite; return, return, that we may look upon thee. What will ye see in the Shulamite? As it were the company of two armies.” - Song of Songs 6: 4-13
Thus this is how the Innermost sings to his fiancee and she in turn full of love sings to her beloved (the Innermost) with the following verses:
“My beloved is gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies. I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the lilies.” - Song of Songs 6: 2, 3
“My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.
His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.
His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.
His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh.
His hands are as gold rings set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires.
His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.
His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.” - Song of Songs 5: 10-16
Does it not seem to you, gentlemen, that we, the spiritualists are doing better? We cultivate the spiritual soul, and intellectuals cultivate the animal soul. Every intellectual is a fornicator and passionate, and many times they fall into the most disgusting vices, because they have only developed the animal soul with all its intellectual and bestial abilities, for both fornication and intellect are of the animal soul.
The culture of the spiritual soul is the greatest work we can do in our lives.
The Innermost is the Voice of Silence, who calls his diamond soul for the "great wedding," he knocks, saying:
“Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.” - Song of Songs 5: 2
But the souls of human beings have not wanted to hear the voice of the beloved, nor do they want to open the door of his chamber; her answer is always hard:
“I have put off my suit; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them?” - Song of Songs 5: 3
And so, souls entangled in religions, schools, beliefs, etc., do not open the door to the beloved, nor do they hear the Voice of the Silence...
Attendee: Master, if as you say, the souls that evolve are the same from the beginning of the world, then from where did so many souls come, since the world has more inhabitants every day?
Samael Aun Weor: Gentleman, I have already said that “death is a subtraction of fractions” and if you want to solve this problem, make a great subtraction of fractions of all the entire humanity. What is left after doing that subtraction of fractions? What remain are the values of the consciouness of all the beings that make up humanity ... Those values of the consciousness are the human values, and where were those values previously and how did they express themselves?
Attendee: Master, that I do not know.
Samael Aun Weor: Those values of the consciousness (human souls) were in the suprasensible worlds of nature and had expressed themselves through the great races of the past; thus, mathematics proves to us that there has been no such increase of souls as you conceive it, what exists is ignorance on your part, misinterpretation of biblical teachings, because Adam was never a single man, nor was Eve a single woman. These names are general and not individual. Adam represents the masculine sex of the Lemurian era, and Eve the feminine sex of that same epoch. So, Adam is all the men of that time, and Eve are all the women of the same time. Nor are individual children the children of that couple that appear in the Bible with the names of Cain and Abel, but Abel is the humanity of the Lemurian continent, and Cain is the humanity of the Atlantean continent.
The Bible states that "Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground." - Genesis 4: 2, and this is because indeed humans of Lemuria were shepherds and farmers, they fed on the milk of their animals and the grains of the earth. Lemurians did not kill animals to feed themselves, they were purely meatless feeders, as will be the humans of the last race in the world, because "the ending is always the same as the beginning, plus the experience of the cycle, its meaning."
Cain also symbolizes the humanity of the Atlantean era and even the current era, in which each brother stands against each brother, and in which each human being is a Cain for his fellowman, that is, for his brother. Cain is always fratricidal because he kills his fellowmen, and a hunter [as Esau] because he feeds on the carcasses of animas, just as our current race does.
Attendee: But master, the bible states “And God said, Let us make man,” - that is Adam [in Hebrew] in our image, after our likeness... and thereafter “he took one of his ribs and made he a woman (that is Eve). So how do you explain this and link it to what you say?
Samael Aun Weor: So, “God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; male and female created he them” - Genesis 5:1, 2
Here the bible symbolizes that the primitive man was hermaphrodite (as God is), since he had both poles (positive and negative), within himself, that is, his sexual force, which becomes creative by means of the word. As a proof of this, we have the male's nipples, which are atrophied mammary glands, and the woman's clitoris, which is an atrophied virile member.
Thus, all present souls were dressed with hermaphroditic physical bodies in those very remote ages of the Earth.
And the four Thrones were the gardeners who watered the seeds of present human bodies, in the slime of the earth, in an ancient age that our greatest historians completely ignore. These seeds germinated in the course of several eternities until reaching their current state.
Thus, when it is stated in the Bible that "God created man," what this meant is to symbolize that the hosts of Elohim created man through successive eternities; and the shape in which mankind’s physicality has gone through all this immensity of time, is recapitulated during the nine months of each mother's pregnancy. This, because nature always lives recapitulating its past evolutionary cycles and never starts a new activity without recapitulating its past activities.
When it is stated: “And the rib, which Jehovah Elohim had taken from Adam, made he a woman, and brought her unto Adam;” the woman [Eve] meant to symbolize the time when humanity separated into two sexes, following a biological process, also of several eternities, because “Natura non facit saltus” (Nature does not jump).
Now, I believe that our friend will exactly realize that there has been no such increase of souls, nor an increase in the human population, because the same souls of today are the same as those of the past that constituted the primeval races. We were the Lemurians, the Atlanteans that now wear other skin garments. This indicates why the spirit has the wisdom of ages and is our inner master.
I will also tell you that there has been no such increase in population; what happens is that there is a decrease in population, because most of the human souls are being lost because of their evilness. All of them are being removed from the current evolutionary wave of humanity.
Attendee: Could the master teach me how to pronounce the Mantram AUM?
Samael Aun Weor: With pleasure, fellow brother: the mantra AUM is pronounced AOM. You have to open your mouth well with the vowel A, round it with the O and close it with the M. And between each of these letters you should count seven seconds like this: AAAAAAAOOOOOOOMMMMMM. AUM is the total sum of all tattvas in creative function.
The stars and everything that lives are generated with the "A," are developed in the matrix, the "O," and are born with the "M."
Thousands of occultists have taken care of the mantra AUM but none have taught how to pronounce it. Certainly this mantra is written AUM, but pronounced AOM, and its kabalistic number is 666. Every good thought, vocalized with AOM, crystallizes mathematically.
Attendee: Master, what is the difference between psychic powers and spiritual gifts?
Samael Aun Weor: Psychic powers are of the animal soul, and spiritual gifts are of the Holy Spirit.
“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit (Holy Spirit or Kundalini).
And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord (each master has his own ministry).
And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit (meaning the sexual fire of the Holy Spirit), dividing to every man severally as he will.” 1 Corinthians 12: 4-11
When the Fire of the Holy Spirit manages to open its way through the skull, and protrudes outside assuming the pictorial figure of the white dove of the Holy Spirit, then this mystical dove becomes the master of the instructor, and confers on him the spiritual gifts.
Each master, when joining to his Innermost, receives in the suprasensible worlds two things: a throne and a temple, and like this is how we are all called to be kings and priests of the universe.
The gifts that the Holy Spirit confers to the master depend on the ray of the master, for there are seven rays of cosmic evolution.
Do not forget, gentleman, that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are the powers of the Innermost expressing themselves through the personality of that master.
“And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.” - 2 Thessalonian 3: 14
This is the new commandment that I, Samael Aun Weor, give to my disciples: stand firm in the word of the Lord and beware of evil, of the so-called "spiritualist schools."
Do not confuse the seven chakras of the astral body with the seven suns of the Innermost, where all the gifts of the Holy Spirit reside, which are then expressed through the personality of the master.
Whosoever climbs the thirty-three steps receives the staff of the patriarchs, but whosoever receives the dove of the Holy Spirit, and the sacred jewel, receives the ineffable wand of the master of Major Mysteries. "And here is wisdom, whosoever has ears to hear, let them hear, and whosoever has understanding let them understands!" Only the pure in heart can receive the High Initiation, and the Holy Spirit.
The College of Initiates works in the laboratory of nature under the direction of the planetary gods, and each master works in his ministry.
However scholarly in spiritualism, theosophism, or rosicrucianism an individual may be, he will never reach these gifts, because these gifts are only received by those who have reached perfect holiness and the most absolute chastity.
There are some who believe that they can reach the most pure stellar spirits without having received the gifts of the Holy Spirit, neither having been sanctified nor purified, and without having received the high initiation, nor the throne, nor the temple, nor the wand, nor the jewel, nor the sword. These, with visions of being super-transcended, are safe candidates for psychiatric institutions.
The apostles of Christ were poor illiterate and humble fishermen, but they were able to receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit because of their perfect holiness and chastity.
When the Innermost fuses with his diamond soul or buddhic body, then the authentic cosmic human, the celestial human, is born, who does not need the mental, astral, vital, physical and volitional bodies and all inferior vehicles. The cosmic human only extracts his values, his sacred essences and thereafter abandons those vehicles.
Thus, the gifts of the Holy Spirit can only be received by those who have been born as cosmic human (celestial human); and disciples of the stellar angels can only be those who were already born as cosmic humans; and the gifts of the Holy Spirit have nothing to do with spiritualism, nor with theosophism or rosicrucianism, nor with the powers of the astral chakras.
The Innermosts who have not yet merged with their diamond soul have not yet been born as celestial humans, they are therefore "spiritual embryos," and no "embryo" can ever be a disciple of the stellar angels, no "embryo" can ever join the heart-temple of a star.
We, the elder brothers and sisters of the White Fraternity, are the only ones that can be disciples of the stellar angels.
The elder brothers and sisters work under the direct orders of the stellar angels according to the cosmic plans, because each one of us has already merged with his diamond soul or buddhic principle; each one of us has already received the Holy Spirit and spiritual gifts; thus, with the fusion of Atman-Buddhi, each one of us was born as a celestial human.
When the Innermost (Atman) merges with his diamond soul (buddhic body), then he is born as a celestial human, who filled with solemn great euphoria of the cosmos rises above all his vehicles and imposes himself upon all of them, controlling the larynx and expressing himself through the creative word.
This is how the Innermost has the right to be a disciple of the stellar gods; therefore, whosoever wants to be a disciple of those planetary spirits without having self-realized in-depth, the most he will achieve will be to communicate with larvae or demons, which will sooner or later lead him to the asylum for lunatics.
Speaking in Eastern language, we will say that once Atman-Buddhi are already united, in other words, the master, rises then euphoric and solemn above the superior manas, and above the inferior manas, that is, above the superior mind and above the inferior mind and above kama rupa (the body of desires) and above the lingam sarira (the vital body) and above stulla sarira (the physical body), in order to have the solemn right to be a disciple of the stellar spirits.
Attendee: Master, we still have some kind of tranquility in the world, but when things get worse in such a way and life becomes totally unfeasible, how will humanity develop and in what way and how will it come out of that chaos?
Samael Aun Weor: Dear fellow brother, the new age is a birth of nature and every birth is painful. Christ when speaking of the new age and the current state in which we live, left us the following:
“And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.” - Mark 13: 7, 8
This is the current era in which we live, and the entire of this century will be of wars, epidemics, earthquakes, and bitterness. Communism and capitalism will launch into a disaster in order to dominate the world, and after all, the human conglomerate will abandon urban life and will return to the fields in order to live according to the laws of nature.
Russia will win the present political battle, and communism is just a rotten bridge between two ages: one that is dying and another that wants to be born. After succeeding, communism will be divided into many political sects, and after all, the disillusioned humans of political parties and urban life will establish themselves in the fields and turn their weapons into plows.
Then the awakening of intelligence will come, and the flare of understanding will illuminate the face of the Earth. The future of humanity will be in the bosom of nature; in the fields, the constant rains will make all the land fertile, and all cities will be destroyed. Christ, left us writing about what we should do in these times:
“For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” - Luke 21: 22
“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.” - Luke 21: 20, 21
Thus we see that all cities will be destroyed and all the wicked of the Earth will perish, before the Aquarian Age begins. The future of mankind will be in the fields.
Red and blue flags are full of prejudices, they belong to the past. Thought will be the evocative flame of the new age, and the white flag of Christ will victoriously fly.
Humans of Aquarius! Take advantage of the present times, now that the evil souls are locked in the abyss.
Attendee: Would the master be so kind to explain the difference between the resurrection and the ascension.
Samael Aun Weor: Gladly, fellow brother. Resurrection is for the soul and not for the body; let us read:
“It is sown an animal body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is an animal body (the body of flesh and blood), and there is a spiritual body (the body of the spirit). As it is written, The first [physical] man, Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit (this is the human being already joint to his Innermost as quickening spirit).”
“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.” - 1st Corinthians 15: 44, 45, 50
In the former verses, the apostle Paul taught that the resurrection is internal. Through fornication the human being knew death and pain, and through chastity and faith in Christ will know resurrection and life.
Human beings are dead and they need to resurrect; [physically], you all are children of the fornication of your parents, yet we, members of the great White Fraternity, are children of resurrection, because we have already merged with our Innermost; such is the resurrection.
“For as in Adam (the common and ordinary fornicator) all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” - 1st Corinthians 15: 22
After the resurrection [of the High Initiation] every master prepares himself for the ascension described in the Bible.
“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.”
That white and glowing cloud is the "Glorian," which full of joy makes its victorious chimes vibrate in the infinite spaces.
When the master joins to his "Glorian", he becomes a shining god of infinity, but in order to reach those ineffable summits we have to pass through the five great Initiations of Major Mysteries.
[“Even the mere physical body has to be transformed into soul; only in this manner is it possible to reach the goal.” - Samael Aun Weor]
“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” - 1st Corinthians 15: 54, 55
Friends, until now you have known the doctrine of the historical Nazarene, but the important thing is that you will also become Nazarenes; the path of Golgotha must be lived by each one of you, and you will fall under the weight of the cross many times, but do not grieve, have courage and throw the cross on your shoulders again with strong and powerful will, although the whip of pain and repentance hurts your flesh after each fall. At last you will reach the solemn Golgotha of your life, and resurrection will make of you children of God, because you will be children of the Holy Spirit.
That sexual force [האשה Ha-Ashah] that you now spend on your fornications will through your chastity be made all fire and will assume on your heads the symbolic figure of the white dove of the Holy Spirit, and thus will teach and instruct you with its atoms of omniscience in the authentic wisdom of God.
The woman [האשה Ha-Ashah] is the path, the woman [האשה Ha-Ashah] is the strait and narrow gate that leads unto light. So the master (Christ) said:
"Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
The woman [האשה Ha-Ashah] is the door of Eden [bliss] and the door of Eden is always narrow. The woman [האשה Ha-Ashah] is the priestess of light and the sacred temple of the [כרבים] Cherubim of Eden. The woman [האשה Ha-Ashah is named חוה Havah, Eve, the male or female genitalia, because our genitalia is the mother of all living], so, she is what she is, and the devil is her shadow.
