Master Samael stated somewhere that an intellectual animal is fundamentally changed after he experiences the Illuminating Void. The experience leads him to truly realize his miserable condition and his longing for liberation is heavily intensified. From what I understood, repeated experiences of the Void will prompt a man to fully dedicate himself to the dissolution of his egos. Nothing can stop him.
In his lecture on the Illuminating Void, Master Samael stated that, in one of his past incarnations in the east, he ( and his brothers from the Order of the Yellow Dragon) used to sit in meditation to submerge themselves in the Void.
My question is that why did he not succeed in dissolving his inhuman elements in that lifetime?
Although this is a question that is better posed to the Master himself, I did not have the patience to wait..
