Secret Notes of a Guru
A Spiritual Diary from Prison
Including How to Get Spiritual Strength from Blessed Food and Drink
“This man, in addition to committing the crime of healing the ill, is also the author of a book entitled The Perfect Matrimony, which is an outrage against public morality and the good customs of the citizens.”
So stated the official document demanding the arrest and imprisonment of Samael Aun Weor. So began his diary written from prison, in which he documented his meditations and insights, and the process of spiritual initiation related to his imprisonment. This book is full of details about dream interpretation, meditation, degrees of initiation, the awakening of the sacred fire, and much more. Most significantly, he emphasized the necessity for spiritual aspirants to consume blessed food and drink at home, that sacred meal known in every religion by names like communion, eucharist, kiddush, tsog, prasad, etc. He also provided a complete ritual for families to practice at home around their dinner table, to invoke the help of the supreme savior known as Christ, Avalokitesvara, Quetzalcoatl, etc. Thus, instead of being cowed by the attempts of the dominate religions to suppress him, they served to increase his efforts to help humanity, resulting in this beautiful and deeply mystical book.
“The Holy Eucharist should be practiced in the houses of all our Gnostic brothers and sisters... Thus, each home can become a Gnostic temple, and the head of each family is a priest. No more lodges, no more schools, no more sects, no more infamies, no more exploitation! The temple is within ourselves, and the High Priest is Christ... When a group of people around a table are verifying the Holy Eucharist, the ceremony reverberates in all the seven planes of cosmic consciousness, and opens a channel through the seven worlds through which the sublime energies of the Solar Logos descend: and thus the bread and wine become true accumulators of Christic atoms, which upon reaching our stomach are diffused throughout our organism, Christifying and sublimating it for the initiation.” —Samael Aun Weor
