Today, I have been profoundly meditating on the esoteric sense contained in Chapter 11 of Revelation:

“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.” —Revelation 11:1

How wise this verse is when I think that this temple of God — or better if I say “of my God” — is being built by one within their own internal worlds, as the fire of the Kundalini rises through the center of a reed like unto a rod (the spinal column).

Indeed, the temple of the Innermost must be measured with a reed. It is wonderful to see in the internal worlds how one goes raising one’s temple as the sacred fire goes up canyon by canyon, along that reed of our spinal column. The dome of the temple is finished when the fire reaches the pineal gland, the diamond eye, or center of polyvision, where the splendorous lotus of one thousand petals resides, which shines like the aureole above the heads of all the Christified ones.

Revelation 11:3 states, “And I will give power unto my two witnesses,” which also seems very interesting to me. These “two witnesses” are the nerve cords called by the Hindus Ida and Pingala. These two cords are related to the ganglia, and through them the solar and lunar atoms of our seminal system ascend.


“These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” —Revelation 11: 4-6

When we comprehend that the sacred fire is awakened by the contact of the solar and lunar atoms of our “two witnesses” (the two ganglionic cords), and that the flaming sword is our own Kundalini, then we understand the meaning of these verses.

Actually, the sword has power against the atoms of the secret enemy and against the powers of evil. When the prophet receives the sword of justice from him, he acquires power over all nature. The lords of justice have the power to punish the world.

In Eden all human beings had the Kundalini awake, and nature obeyed them, but when humans gave themselves up to lust, the two “witnesses” went through a mystical death and humans lost their swords, and were thrown out of Eden.

Verses 7, 8, 9, 10 of the same chapter 11 are dedicated to the singing of that knowledge.

“And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” —Revelation 11: 7, 8

Sodom is fornication, by which our Christ, the “astral light” is crucified, and the great city is Babylon the great, this corrupt civilization in which we live. However, our “two witnesses” will be resurrected and the human being will be transformed into an angel, and will again acquire his ancient powers.

“And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.” —Revelation 11: 11

The three and a half days correspond to the third degree of the power of fire, and to the third initiation of major mysteries. Upon reaching the third great initiation, the astral or mediator Crestos acquires all the lost powers lost (he rises on the third day from the dead).

“And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” —Revelation 11: 19

These have been my meditations today, and I think like this: how foolish people are! If they knew what they lose when they go to fornicate, instead of laughing, they would cry.
