Major Mysteries

The Sacred Sexuality Taught and Lived by Jesus

A Book by Samael Aun Weor

For two thousand years, the teachings of Christianity have changed dramatically, especially regarding its founder and inspiration, Jesus. A master of Kabbalah and Hebrew, Jesus brought the secret teachings out of hiding, and was killed for it. Since then, his true teachings have not been heard by the public, until now.

The story of Adam and Eve written by Moses is the basis of the Western religions. It says that originally, humanity knew divinity face to face, and was pure, innocent, and happy, symbolized by living in Eden, a Hebrew word that literally means “bliss, pleasure.” But Moses says when they ate the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge (Da’ath), humanity lost its place in Eden, and suffering began. Unfortunately, people read this story literally, and do not understand what it represents. Jesus came to explain it, and lead the way back to Eden.

The whole purpose of religion is to guide us back to Eden, happiness. That is what Jesus taught in the streets to suffering humanity, and why his first miracle was at a wedding: we can return to Eden only when man and woman unite to undo the mistake of Adam and Eve. The forbidden fruit is related to sex. To return to We can only return to Eden through the same door we used to leave it: sex. The return to Eden is the “narrow, straight gate,” the way to be “born again.” Any birth, whether of the flesh or the spirit, is sexual; Jesus pointed this out, too.

“Except one be born again, one cannot see the kingdom of God... Except one be born of water and of the Spirit, one cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” —Jesus, John 3: How to Be Born Again

Yet the sexuality of Eden is divine, pure, clean, without the blemish of lust or animal desire. That is what we need to escape suffering: to be pure again.

To explain the process of returning to Eden, Samael Aun Weor illustrates it with the initiations and trials Jesus passed through in Asia and Egypt, including descriptions of his wife, his personal life, and many details never before revealed publicly.
