The prayer that nowadays is called "Hail Mary" or "Ave Maria" is a very ancient Gnostic prayer with very deep meanings and importance. Let us read the prayer first:
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.
Virginis Maria mater Dei,
ora pro nobis cum peccatoribus ego,
nunc, et in hora mortis vitium nostrae.
Hail Ram-IO, full of grace,
Our Lord is with Thee!
Blessed art thou, amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Yeshua.
Virgin Ram-IO, Mother of God,
pray for us with the sinning ego,
now and at the hour of the death
of our vices. Amen.
The latin name Maria hides the mantra Ram-IO, which is the mantra with which we address the Divine Mother, Mother of God.
In order to comprehend who Mary is, we have to study the Tree of Life, or what is called the Kabbalah, as well as Osiris, Isis, and Horus.
Samael Aun Weor taught us in Mexico how we should pronounce Horus. He stated, "The way that we pronounced iHorus in ancient Egypt was OUROOS." And the way that we should pronounce Osiris is " O-SEE-REES," and Isis is pronounced "EES- EES."
Thus, we are going to explain according to the Tree of Life in order to comprehend what the mother Ram-IO, Latin Maria, Mary is, in each one of us.
Kabbalistically, we always state that the sephirah Malkuth, which is at the very bottom of the Tree of Life, is precisely the feminine aspect of the sephirah Binah.
Many times we have explained that the sephirah Malkuth emerges from the left side of the Tree of Life, which is headed by Binah, the Holy Spirit in Christianity, Shiva in Hinduism. So, when we address the sephirah Malkuth, we are addressing Maria, Mary, Ram-IO.
We have to visualize our physicality, which many times we have said is feminine. Whether you have a masculine or feminine body, the sephirah Malkuth — which represents our physicality — is feminine, our own matter. Actually the word mater in Latin means "mother."
Mary relates to the festivity of Christmas; in it, we, Gnostics worship Horus / Christ and Isis, Maria, Mary, the Divine Mother.
So, in order to comprehend all of these feminine and masculine aspects that we find in the Tree of Life, it is necessary to remember the sacred name of God in Kabbalah, the Tetragrammaton: יהוה
As we see, יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei actually contains two hebrew letters ה Hei. The first letter ה Hei relates to the Sephirah Daath in the throat, which indeed is a sexual organ where the word is gestated.
We find that the throat in women and in men emit distinct pitches or sound tones. The pitch, the tone, in the male voice is more heavy, yet female's pitch or tone is more light, more feminine. The sexual genitalia is also divided into masculine and feminine. Everybody knows this. Nevertheless, comprehend: the throat as well as the sexual organs in both sexes relate to the letter ה Hei.
The spermatozoid grants the heavy voice and the sexual strength to males; the ovum, the sexual feminine hormones, give power to the throat, to the word to females.
We find that the Egyptian hieroglyphic that points to the letter I in the name Isis is symbolized by a throne, in other words, the hieroglyphic I of Isis is formed by a throne. Three are the hieroglyphics that spell Isis, namely, a throne in the left, a half circle, which is a loaf of bread in the middle, and a seated feminine figure, a goddess at the right. So, this is how the name of Isis is inscribed in hieroglyphics. Egyptian hieroglyphics as well as the Hebrew letters do not have vowels. So, it is very significant that a throne is the hieroglyphic that symbolizes the letter 'I' that spells Isis, since we know that the throne also symbolizes the cerebrospinal nervous system, what we call also the central nervous system, which is the 'throne of God,' the Rune 'Is' that activates the shakti potential of Isis, the Kundalini.
Let us now study Osiris' hieroglyphics. His name is also written with a throne on top of the iris-eye of Ra, and a hieroglyphic of a God in the right. This is how Egyptians wrote Osiris.
If you look at these hieroglyphics, you will find that the 'I' of Isis is precisely above the iris-eye of the name Os-iris. With this we want to point out that in ancient Egypt, when we were addressing Osiris, we knew that within the rune 'Os' is the shakti potential of 'Is' because 'Os' of Osiris is written with the same Egyptian hieroglyphic throne. That is why we stated and we repeat that Isis comes out of Osiris.
In the previous lecture [The Prayer of the Lord], we explained that Osiris-Ra is precisely the symbol of the three Logoi plus the Ain Soph Aur; the three Logoi in the world of Atziluth are what we find in the Tree of Life, the supernal triangle: the sephiroth Kether, Chokmah, and Binah. These three together are what we call Osiris manifested in the world of creation (Briah), which is also called "World of the Throne." So, that is why when we talk about Osiris, we associate him with Binah, but exactly in the sephirah Daath which means knowledge, Gnosis. And Isis is precisely the unfoldment of Osiris; 'Os' projects 'Is,' in other words, Osiris projects His feminine aspect into the throat which is Daath. That is why when we praise God we say Hallelujah; that "Jah" יה in Hebrew has the letter י Iod and the letter ה Hei; they are Abba and Aima Elohim, Father and Mother.
Ave Maria, Hail Mary, hail Ram-IO, or hail Os-Ir-Is-eye of Ra, hail Jah! Hallelu-Jah! Who are in Daath. As the Book of the Zohar explains:
"Primeval races and their offspring were created and called into existence by the second Divine Form, or hypostasis, symbolized by the letter ה Hei, as it is written "behibaram" (whom ה Hei created), a word which the most ancient teachers maintain ought to be divided and written "behei baram," meaning, Elohim created them by the ה Hei [in the throat]." - Zohar
From Daath, the throat, descends the shakti of the letter ה Hei through the letter ו Vav (the spine) and is placed in the second ה Hei, which is the last ה Hei from the holy name: יהוה Iod Hei Vav Hei.
Mary is precisely this second letter ה Hei, that unfortunately for everybody is fallen, because she represents our physicality. Our duty is to raise the shakti potential of Mary through the letter ו Vav, our spine, in order to make this second Hei holy. She is related with our matter, our physicality. In order to perform this we need – through, Daath, the throat, the word – to receive the assistance of יה Iod-Hei, “Jah,” our internal Father and Mother, in the world of creation (Briah), the letter ו Vav, the world of their throne.
The throat is very important. If we observe the throat with an open mouth, we will see that it resembles a vagina. This is because, really, it is where the word is gestated. This is very significant.
So, when we read the bible about the birth of Christ, we find that Christ came from Egypt; Moses came from Egypt; Muhammad came from Egypt, Africa. And this knowledge that we are teaching in this day and age, we the Gnostics, is also rooted in Egypt. Right now, the internal temples of the Sphinx in the Great Pyramid of Egypt, in the internal worlds, are open, and we are delivering this doctrine directly in connection with the ancient temples of Egypt. Of course, if you go in the physical worlds you will only find sand, desert. But internally, those temples still exist. That is why the Master Samael Aun Weor explains in many of his books that all of this strength, power, forces that we are receiving to deliver this knowledge, come directly from Egypt. Moreover, when we enter into Second Chamber, we realize that still we are worshipping Osiris, Isis, and Horus. Notwithstanding, we know that a very profound symbolism is behind these archetypes. We will not fall into the mistake in thinking that the ancient Egyptians were worshipping idols, like many ignoramuses state, because they ignore what the soul is.
In this physicality, we have a soul that is called an "animal soul" (the word animal derives from the Latin word anima which means "soul"). When somebody purifies their bestial anima or soul - when I say this word beast, it comes into my mind the Hebrew word חיה "Chaiah" which means beast and is also translated as animal. חיות “Chaioth” means beasts, it is the plural of חיה "Chaiah."
Now, we must point out that the human beings who have purified their animal souls are called חיות הקדש Chaioth Ha Kadosh, holy creatures or animals that relate with the Sphinx. The Sphinx, you see, has a human face, wings of an eagle, paws of the lion, and the legs of bull. This four together relate to the holy name of God: Iod Hei Vav Hei, and these חיות הקדש Chaioth Ha Kadosh are what Ezekiel called "the four living creatures." They symbolize those individuals that have purified their Nephesh or animal soul, which relates to certain forces of the elements.
So, when you find in the remains of ancient Egypt depictions of a man with the face of sparrow hawk, it is in relation to the mind. It is in relation to the higher level of mind that is purified and is able to receive in his physicality messages from the internal worlds of the mind. So, every head in all of those great monuments of Egypt are different symbols, like the ram for fire, hippopotamus for water, etc. This is what is symbolized according to our animal soul.
All of us have an "animal soul." This animal soul is called Nephesh in Kabbalah. An animal soul is not yet human. We are not yet human. We have the appearance, the outer form of humans, but our souls are still animal.
When Solon, the great Master from Greece, went to Egypt and learned all of that knowledge from Egypt, he came back and taught this doctrine to the Greeks. It is written that the great priests of the cities of Sais in Egypt told Solon: "Oh Solon, Solon, the day will come when people will state that we, ancient Egyptians, were worshipping idols."
Europeans could not grasp this archetypical concept from Egypt. When they saw all of the carved images and saw people dancing, singing and meditating around these images, they said they were “idol worshipping.”
All of this happened in Kali Yuga, the Dark Age. We are still in Kali Yuga, since ignoramuses mock the great archetypes, the symbols of Egypt. Why? Because they are ignoramuses. This is it; that is the answer. Yet, when we delve deep into Kabbalah, and the studies of religions, we know that these symbols are very holy. Ignoramuses, who later on were just blindly following traditions, ignored the deep symbolism of these archetypes - living principles of their traditions; but here you will find that Isis, Osiris, and Horus represents the enfoldment through initiations of the true Human Being that must be born inside of us.
So when we name Osiris, we are naming, in actuality: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in one body. And that is why, in many scriptures such as "The Book of the Dead" of the Egyptians, it is written "Osiris-Ra" because Ra is the Solar Light that is above the sephirah Kether. And in Kabbalah this is called the Ain Soph Aur. That is Ra. And Ra together with the three primary forces of the first triangle of the Tree of Life forms the holy name of God: Iod Hei Vav Hei, in heaven, in the world of Atziluth. When Osiris manifests Himself in Daath, in the world of creation, he is called Osiris-Ra, meaning that all of his forces manifest through him. Osiris-Ra is the Monad that we have within. Isis is the Duad, the feminine aspect of him, so when we say Osiris-Isis we are naming the Duad. That Duad, Father/Mother, is inside of everybody. It is written, "You shall honor your Father and Mother." This relates exactly to these aspects that we are talking about.
Now, Horus is the Triad, because he is born from Isis. Horus is Christ incarnated in the human being. From Horus comes "aura," and the world Aur in Hebrew which means light inside the human being. See here how you spell Horus. The falcon is the letter A, and the eye of Ra is the letter R. This is how you spell it. After the Pharaoh, you find the hawk, the falcon. This means that he has incarnated the God Horus. In other words, Horus is Christ in Greek, the Messiah in Hebrew.
In the Book of John, chapter one, verses one through fourteen, it is explained how the Lord descends into our physicality, in Mary. In other words, when she is virgin. When anyone enters into these studies, their Mary is not a virgin Mary but Mary Magdalene, which is different, because as you know, it states that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute who became holy. This is, of course, a reference to our own matter, in this particular case. So when you read:
"In [ברית אש Berith Esh] the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. These [Archetypes] were in the beginning with God.
"All things [Debarim] were made by the Word; and without the Word was not any thing [dabar] made that was made.
"In the Word is life; and the life is the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
"There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might have faith. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
"In the Light is the truth, which enlighten every man that comes into the world.
"It [the Light] is in the world, and the world was made by it, and the world knew it not.
"He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him [through the Initiation of Tiphereth], to them gave he [the Logos] power to become the children of God, even to them that have faith on his name: Which were born, not of blood [lineage], nor of the [evil] will of the flesh [kundabuffer], nor of the will of [the run-of-the-mill] man, but of [the will of the Spirit of] God [ברית אש Berith Esh that moves upon the face of the waters - Alchemy].
"[And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." - John 1: 1-14
Remember the Book of Genesis states, "Beresheth Bera Elohim" which is translated as: "ברית אש Berith Esh created Elohim" or "Beresheth created Elohim." We explained in other lectures how Elohim relates to the first sephiroth of the Tree of Life: אל "El” to Kether, אלה "Elah” to Chokmah, and אלהים "Elohim" to Binah. So the word Elohim encompasses the three primary forces, Father, Son and Holy Spirit together. And who created Elohim, the first triangle of the Tree of Life? This is created by Beresheth, which is ברית אש Berith Esh, the sexual power of the Absolute, the Unknowable Divine.
So when we read in the gospel of John, "In the beginning was the Word" we can also kabbalistically see this as "In the beginning," that is, "in Berith-Esh the Word was." The word was hidden in Berith-Esh, in the beginning, "and [therefore, fire, Esh] the Word was with Elohim - meaning that the Word that came from the Absolute was – אש “Esh” - fire because it was with Elohim, thus, the Word is Ra, Solar Force. "And the Word was God" - meaning that “Ra,” Christ, the solar force, Ain Soph Aur, when emerging from the Unknowable Divine became embodied in Elohim, it became into the word, the Logos. "These were in the beginning with God." When you read "these" in Hebrew it is אלה “Eleh”, "These were in the beginning with God" and the word אלה “Eleh” "these" is addressing all of the 22 archetypes that form the Logos, the Word that came down in order to create the universe.
All of these - אלה “Eleh” - forces or Logoi, Father, Son and Holy Spirit are in the beginning, in ברית אש Berith Esh, with Elohim.
The gospel continues, "All things were made by Him - the Word - and without the word was not anything made that was made." In Hebrew "things" is written "Debarim," which is the plural of “Dabar,” which means “Word” in Kabbalah, in Hebrew. The word "Dabarim" means "words" and also "things." So when we read, "all things were made from the Word," we will say, "all words emanated from the Logos, from the throat, from the Elohim, the Gods in Daath.
The gospel continues, "In him [the Word, the Logos] was life; and the life was the light of men." The word, the Logos is life - חיה Chaiah - indeed, and the life - חיים - is the light of men, true men, meaning, alchemists, initiates.
The gospel continues, "And the light shines in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not" means that, that light which is the Word, which is Elohim, the Logos, abides in darkness, within the Gonads, in each one of us. This is why Isis is black in the beginning. She is like the charcoal that contains the fire. So, everybody inside of his/her own matter is black. It doesn't matter if that person is Chinese, African, from Europe, or from the Middle East.
The matter itself, psychologically and spiritually speaking, is black; we need to take the אש “Ash” fire out of it through ברית Berith, chastity.
Thereafter it is written, "There was a man sent from God whose name was Jochanan -יהוחנן;” this is how John is pronounced in Aramaic, Hebrew. In English it is written John.
When we read, "There was a man sent from God [“El” Chesed] whose name was Jochanan," we have to understand and comprehend that, that man himself is Tiphereth, the human soul. So, we need to reach the level of Tiphereth, because it gathers all the archetypes of Israel.
The gospel continues, "The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the light.” "Witness" in Hebrew is "Od" which is the right serpent of the caduceus of mercury related with the Solar Light because, indeed, Chokmah descends from the top of the right column into Tiphereth, into the true initiate that works in Daath.
The Gospel then states, "That all men through him might believe" which means that he will preach, teach, the doctrine so that all of those that follow the doctrine of the true man might believe or might follow the same path.
Believing is not what ordinary people think or understand as something that we store in our mind, like a dogma or theory and say, "Oh, I believe." No! Believe or be-leave mean to be absent. In Greek "Pistis" means faith, not belief. This faith means, or points to something that is within us, something that is not absent, something that we have developed within our consciousness, not by thinking or by remembering the scriptures but by performing the second birth in alchemy. It is practical, not theoretical. That is why we stated: “Whosoever knows, the word gives power to, no one has uttered it, no one will utter it, except the one in whom the word is incarnated.” The throat, Daath, expresses the Word, the hands write the Word expressed by Daath, the throat, and this is the word written in the book. Understand, the word that is expressed by the throat is the outcome of chastity, of the transmutation of the sexual energy. The more you transmute, the more power in your throat you receive.
The gospel continues, "He was not that light but was sent to bear witness of that light." “That light” is Ra, the Ain Soph Aur; “he” is John, the witness dressed with the Egyptian Khu or causal body, who bears “that light” or Horus, Christ, in Tiphereth. All of them together are Ra-Horus-Khu.
Now the revised translation has to continue like this, "In the light is the truth" This is the real translation should be in all of the Gospels, and not "that was the truth." This is how it is translated in modern Bibles. Again, the actual translation should be, "In the light is the truth that enlightens every man that comes into the world." If you study Kabbalah, you know that if you follow the path of initiation, eventually you will be another man that comes into the world. And that is why the text says, "It, the light, is in the world" meaning, Ra, the Solar Force is in the world. Ra is in the atmosphere; without the Solar Light, this planet would die.
"And the world was made by it (Ra) and the world knew it not." You see, everybody talks about Christ, especially in Christmas. Everybody celebrates Christmas, but they do not know that Christmas is associated with the Solar Light.
We know that on the 25th of December, the days light will start growing more and more. Before the 25th the nights are longer than the days; the Lord, the light, is a child on the 25th of December, it is a baby. Yet, in summertime, the Lord, the light, is completely adult. So, Christmas is a cosmic celebration; it has nothing to do with the physical birth of Jesus or any other master. But if we want to indicate that Master Jesus incarnated that Light within himself, we say let us celebrate the birth of Jesus on the 25th of December just as many other Masters also celebrate their birth on such a date. If you look into the story of all religions, you will find that many great Masters were born the 25th of December, not only Jesus. This means that not only Jesus receives the Lord, the Christ, but many others. This is precisely what humanity needs to understand in this day and age. If we are going to celebrate the birth of Jesus it is because Christ is in him, but if we celebrate the birth of Moses the 25th of December or the birth of Muhammad or the birth of another Master, it will be okay, if you know what such a date symbolizes.
This is why it is written, “That [Christ] is the true Light, which lightens every man that comes into the world.” this means, every enlightened man or Buddha that comes into the worlds with that light within.
The Gospel says as well, "It came into his own and his own received Him not." Who are his own? His own are the Christians who believe in Christ and who are waiting for the second coming of the Lord, yet, they do not know that the Solar Light comes everyday and that the Solar Light comes in any man or any woman that incarnates the light. The second coming of Christ is inside not outside. That is why it is written, "He came into His own." When Jesus was incarnated two thousand years ago, Christ was in Him and He went to the people that were talking about Him through the scriptures and they didn't recognize Him; they didn't receive Him.
Nonetheless, it is written, "But as many as receive Him (referring to those that know how to develop that light within themselves) to them gave He (Christ) power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name." Now, here we are reaching this thorny point on which we hear those people who read the Bible, saying, "Oh I believe in his name! Jesus is Christ! Therefore, because I believe in his name, because I raise my hand and say I believe in his name, I am now a new born, right?" Sadly, they forgot or did not read the part that continues after and which states, "which were born not of blood." Let us read clearly, "everybody that believes in his name that were born not of blood." This "blood is referring to lineage.
People think that they are going to receive the lord or the Messiah automatically just because they are of this or that lineage, or because they read the scriptures, or because they belong to this or that religion. The Jews who did not receive the Lord two thousand years ago, did not because they were thinking that He was coming only physically. They ignored that the Lord incarnates inside, he is not born of blood or lineage. In other words, the Messiah is not born through one's lineage. We hope you understand this, right?
The Gospel continues, "Not of the will of the flesh." This is referring to that fleshy will that we have in abundance. Many people think that to incarnate the Lord is just easy. You can have a lot will of the flesh but a child of God cannot be born of it, but only of chastity. What is the will of the flesh? The flesh push you to fornication, to the orgasm, the spasm of the animal. That is the will of the flesh. Thus, if any Christian is fornicating, reaching the orgasm, then they are following the will of the flesh.
The Lord is not born like through the will of the flesh. The Lord is only born within scientific chastity.
And then the Gospel states, "nor of the will of man." This means somebody that is an initiate and says, "My will is to follow the direct path and therefore the Lord will come to me because that is my will." He can develop a very strong will and the Lord will not descend on Him because the Lord only descends by the will of God. So first you have to be born by the will of God and the will of God is scientific chastity. It's not a matter of believing or belonging to a certain group or philosophy that knows about these things. God is Elohim. It's above. Elohim is Isis and Osiris who in Daath decide where Horus is going to be born. So Abba and Aima, Father and Mother, decide where Jesus the Messiah is going to descend. Thus this how we understand, "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."
Thus, first we have to become one of those many who receive him. Yet, in order to receive him, first we have to become a man sent from God. How do we become a man sent by the will of God? Only through initiation we become a man sent from God, because only through initiation we create the Solar physical, vital, astral, mental, and causal bodies inside and - if we take the Direct Path - we become a man sent by the will of God, and one of the many where the Lord descends.
Unto those many who receive him, it is written, “And the Word was made flesh (in our physicality) and dwelt amongst us and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."
The Word becomes flesh in that initiation which is called the initiation of Tiphereth; this is not easy. We have to be born as a man by the will of God first. And remember, it is not by believing, nonetheless, if you insist that is by believing, then listen, this is only by those men who are born by the will of God and not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man. Since, Christians perceive this backwards, they think that those who are born of blood, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, will receive Christ and therefore they will become children of God; this is incorrect. Listen, in order to receive the Lord, first you have to be born a true human being by the will of God. The majority of people on this planet are not true human beings because they have not created the Solar Bodies. They only have the lunar bodies of nature. Moreover, there are many initiatic levels by means of which we receive the Lord by the will of God.
We are arriving here at the higher level. For that, we have to study Elijah, אליהו EL-IAO, the prophet who was reincarnated in Jochanan -יהוחנן. In other words Jochanan, Eliao is the one who receives the Venustic Initiation. Have you heard about the Venustic Initiation? Venus is the goddess of love. Jochanan -יהוחנן is the one who follows Anael or Hanael חניאל; this is how Anael is pronounced in Hebrew. This is in the path of the middle. It is for the one who receives the Venustic Initiation. This means, the light of the Lord enters the physical body, of the initiate who has reached that level, and develops in the true man, but only after receiving it in the physical body. It goes into the vital body, astral body, mental body, causal body, Buddhic body, and Atman, the Spirit. Those are the seven serpents of light.
Observe the way in which Anael is written in Hebrew. Hanael חניאל means "the grace of El,” God. Likewise Jochanan -יהוחנן means "the grace of IAO." Let us study kabbalistically how Jochanan is written in Hebrew: Iod, Hei, Vav, Chet, Nun, final Nun. Iod, Hei, Vav, is the word I A O which is the sacred name of God in Hebrew; חנן Chet, Nun, final Nun means grace, thus in Hebrew, יהוחנן Jochanan means the grace of IAO.
Look now at these Hebrew names, Jochanan -יהוחנן - Hanael חניאל - Elijah or אליהו EL-IAO - to comprehend how - in the Venustic Initiation - this Elijah, which is אל-יהו EL-IAO in Hebrew, is hidden in between the grace of God חני-אל-יהו-חנן, which is Hanael חניאל and Jochanan יהוחנן or Anael and John.
The last two letters of Hanael חניאל - the grace of God - are Aleph and Lamed, which spells אל “El” in the name Anael; these same letters are in the beginning of אליהו EL-IAO, the God IAO.
And the name Jochanan -יהוחנן have Iod, Hei, Vav – IAO at the begining, and אליהו EL-IAO, Elijah have these same three letters at the end.
Thus, it is written:
"Behold, I am sending to you Elijah [אליהו EL-IAO] the prophet, Before the coming of the day of יהוה [Chokmah], the great and the fearful." - Malachi 4: 5
Before the descent of the Messiah into Malkuth, into the physical world, our own physicality, Elijah has to be sent from God. This means that we have to reach first the level of a true man.
Thus, it is written in the Gospel of John:
“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light."
John is the true man who is born by the will of God through scientific chastity. And such a man has, through the Venustic Initiation, reached the level of EL-IAO. Master Jesus states in the Gospel of Matthew that John the Baptist was the reincarnation of Eliao or Elijah.
"And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.
"But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, “Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.”
"Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
"And if ye will receive it, this is Elijah, which was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." - Matthew 11: 7-15
This, esoterically speaking, addresses any human being that through the Venustic Initiation reaches the level of Elijah. Thus, if you don't reach the level of Elijah, you will not receive the Messiah. We have to study Kabbalah in order to understand what the level of Eliao is, in order to receive the Venustic Initiation and become Jochanan. And as Jochanan – Ieouhanams -, we will preach to the multitudes and they will ask us, “who are you?” And we will confess, and denied not; but confess, I am not the Christ. And they will ask us, What then? Are you Eliao [the God IAO]? And we will say, I am not. Are you [Chesed] that prophet? And we will answer, No. Then they will ask us, Who are you? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What do you say about yourself? We will then say, "I am the voice of one [among many Bodhisattvas] crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaiah... And there comes one [among the 12 Yeshuas] mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose."
Thus little by little the Light will crystallize in our physical, vital, astral, mental, causal, Buddhic, and Atmic bodies. So, Jochanan is not the light but a witness of the light, yet for that we have to reach the level of Eliao, or little Iao.
Of the incarnation of John the Baptizer
“It came to pass then, when I had come into the midst of the rulers of the aeons, that I looked down on the world of mankind, by command of the First Mystery. I found Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptizer, before she had conceived him, and I sowed into her a power which I had received from the little Iao, the Good, who is in the Midst, that he might be able to make proclamation before me and make ready my way, and baptize with the water of the forgiveness of sins. That power then is in the body of John.
That John was Elijah in a former birth
"Moreover in place of the soul of the rulers which he was appointed to receive, I found the soul of the prophet Elijah in the aeons of the sphere; and I took him thence, and took his soul and brought it to the Virgin of Light, and she gave it over to her receivers; they brought it to the sphere of the rulers and cast it into the womb of Elizabeth. So the power of the little Iao, who is in the Midst and the soul of the Prophet Elijah, they were bound into the body of John the Baptizer. For this cause then were ye in doubt aforetime, when I said unto you; “John said: I am not the Christ,’ and ye said unto me: ‘It standeth written in the scripture: When the Christ shall come, Elijah cometh before him and maketh ready his way.’ But when ye said this unto me, I said unto you: ‘Elijah verily is come and hath made ready all things, as it standeth written, and they have done unto him as they would.’ And when I knew that ye had not understood that I had discoursed with you concerning the soul of Elijah which is bound into John the Baptizer, I answered you in the discourse in openness face to face: ‘If ye like to accept John the Baptizer: he is Elijah, of whom I have said that he will come.’” - The Gnostic Bible: The Pistis Sophia
Now, let us remember the great IAO, namely, Kether, Chokmah and Binah together, who are what we call Osiris, who is a black Elohim. This is how it is stated in ancient Egypt. If Osiris is a black Elohim, and if Isis comes out of Osiris, obviously Isis is also black. That is why the great human beings that came to represent these archetypes came from מצרים Mitz-Ra-im, Egypt. Isis is represented by מרים Miriam, Mary, the physical Mother of Jesus of Nazareth; she was a Jew who travelled to Egypt. She learned there and was a disciple of the Egyptians; in other words, she was a vestal; thus, we know the story of how an anointed priest of Osiris, a righteous man, a Tzadic “צ” who was Joseph, impregnated מרים Miriam, this impregnation is precisely hidden in the word מצרים Mitzrahim, Egypt, which explains the amalgamation of these two names under the light of alchemy, namely, Mary מרים Miriam and Joseph, the Tzadic, the letter Tzade צ.
Isis, the Latin Maria, is Ram-IO. This is how we say it alchemically. We have to read “Mar” backwards as “Ram” and “IA” as “IO”; Ram-IO, Maria, Mary. "IO" is the Luni-Solar androgynism. IO is the masculine/ feminine force of Ra, the fire. The letter "M" symbolizes the water which is always feminine. So, when we say “Ram” we are visualizing “Ra” the fire in the water, the “M”; and IO symbolizes the fire and the water in the masculine and feminine polarities in Malkuth; thus, this is the meaning of the name Ram-IO, Maria, Mary. And her husband, also, has the same meaning but in Yesod. His name is IO-Cephas, Joseph. We read “IO” here again, the two polarities of Cephas, the stone, the rock of Yesod. Cephas is Petros, Patar, Peter, Pitara, the Father “Ra,” Osiris-Ra.
"And when Jesus beheld Peter, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jonah: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone [Πέτρος Petros]." - John 1: 42
Thus, this is how we understand: Ram-IO and IO-Cephas [Mary and Joseph, Osiris and Isis], the two forces that will give birth to Horus or Jesus, Yeshua, the Savior in Hebrew.
"Homage to thee, Osiris, Lord of eternity, King of the Gods, whose names are manifold, whose forms are holy, thou being of hidden form in the temples, whose Ka is holy. Thou art the governor of Tattu (Busiris), and also the mighty one in Sekhem (Letopolis). Thou art the Lord to whom praises are ascribed in the name of Ati, thou art the Prince of divine food in Anu. Thou art the Lord who is commemorated in Maati, the Hidden Soul, the Lord of Qerrt (Elephantine), the Ruler supreme in White Wall (Memphis). Thou art the Soul of Ra, his own body, and hast thy place of rest in Henensu (Herakleopolis). Thou art the beneficent one, and art praised in Nart. Thou makest thy soul to be raised up. Thou art the Lord of the Great House in Khemenu (Hermopolis). Thou art the mighty one of victories in Shas-hetep, the Lord of eternity, the Governor of Abydos. The path of his throne is in Ta-tcheser (a part of Abydos). Thy name is established in the mouths of men. Thou art the substance of Two Lands (Egypt). Thou art Tem, the feeder of Kau (Doubles), the Governor of the Companies of the gods. Thou art the beneficent Spirit among the spirits. The god of the Celestial Ocean (Nu) draweth from thee his waters. Thou sendest forth the north wind at eventide, and breath from thy nostrils to the satisfaction of thy heart."
The former quotation is a great prayer found in "The Egyptian Book of the Dead." Who is Osiris? All of us, have his/her own particular Osiris within. And it is stated that he is a black Elohim because he comes from the Absolute, from the Dark Light and expresses itself in the column, Jed. Jed is how you name the the spinal column in Egypt. There, in the spinal column, is where the power of Osiris lies. The Tree of Life, as we say, in every human being is in the spinal column and that is Jed, the symbol of Osiris. That is why it is stated that the god Jed is elevated to Jedu, meaning that, when you transmute your sexual energy and that energy starts rising in your spinal column that is Jedu, the Lower Egypt, in your body. Everybody has Osiris within but not everybody is raising the god of Jed into Jedu. In order to do that you have to reach chastity. You have to enter into the path because one thing is to have the god of Jed wthin and another is to elevate that god Jed to Jedu. That is sexual alchemy and in order to peform sexual alchemy you need Isis, the priestess (a legitimate spouse) because no one can elevate Osiris to that level without Isis. That is why it is written that the shade of Osiris which is called Typhon (Seth in the Bible) killed Osiris and cut him into many pieces. That is referring to Lucifer who is really inside of us, not outside. That is Seth, which is the sexual power. When we enter into this path, we realize that our soul, Osiris, Pistis Sophia, as it is written in the Bible of the Gnostics, is trapped into many parts, in other words, into many egos.
Nevertheless, the one that can gather all of those parts and resuscitate Osiris is Isis. Only Isis, who is his wife can do that work but She needs the assistance of Horus, the falcon god. In other words, She needs the assistance of the Lord and that is the great work of alchemy. Horus, the Lord, incarnated in the real human being, together with Isis, work and assemble all of the part of Osiris, except one. The phallus. It is written that Isis gathered all the parts except the phallus so Osiris was restored again and resuscitated but again, without the phallus. This is pointing to a profound mystery. That phallus is the symbol of Seth reformed meaning that when somebody resurrects, there's no lust within that Master. They have become completely clean, no lust, no lasciviousness, nothing filthy. This is the meaning of a resurrected master without a phallus. It doesn't mean that the resurrected Master doesn't have a phallus, physically. They have a phallus if they are a man. It is a symbol. It is similar to the symbol of the circumcision but when there is completely, no phallus then that means there is no lust whatsoever within that Master but the divine gathered up all of the pieces and resurrected him with the help of Horus. Isn't that beautiful? And that is precisely the work that we have to do inside of us. It is not easy to resurrect.
Our Inner Monad, the Holy Spirit within, which is the symbol of Osiris, is black because black contains the fire, hidden. Only those that awaken the fire understand who Osiris is, and the black Madonna which is inside of us.
Do not think that you will start by having a white Madonna, because all of us are black. All of us are black with sin, and that is why you find the Divine Mother Isis, symbol of Rhea, Cybeles, Tonantzin, Mary, etc. You see, She has many names: Mary, Isis, Nuit, etc.
"Oh Isis! Mother of the Cosmos, root of Love, trunk, bud, leaf, flower and seed of all that exists; we conjure Thee, naturalizing force.
We call upon the Queen of Space and of the Night, and kissing her loving eyes, drinking the dew from her lips, breathing the sweet aroma of her body, we exclaim:
Oh Thou, Nuit! Eternal Seity of heaven, who art the primordial Soul, who art what was and what shall be, Isis, whose veil no mortal has lifted, when Thou art beneath the irradiating stars of the nocturnal and profound sky of the desert, with purity of heart and in the flame of the serpent, we call upon Thee!."
This is a prayer for those that want to awaken the Kundalini, the brazen serpent that Moses lifted up in the wilderness. The brazen serpent represents the Divine Mother Isis, Mary, etc... and this is why she is represented by a rising serpent whereas the tempting serpent of Eden represents the kundabuffer organ that through fornication is precipitated downwards and developing the tail of Satan in the children of Lilith, the children of the night, the darkness.
Through Isis is how the Lord Christ represented by the God Horus or Haroeris the God with the head of a falcon, enters into the Mysteries of the true Christmas. The head of a falcon is the highest of the levels of objective reasoning that any initiate can develop, this is called Anklad. When someone reaches Anklad, they receive the head of a falcon. Which means that such initiate has fully developed the light within, and becomes an Elohim in the physical body, a human being without ego. Only Horus incarnated in the true human being is capable of defeating Typhon, Seth. Typhon, Seth is only the sexual energy, the power of Lucifer in Latin. Samael Aun Weor wrote:
"It is obvious that Osiris, Isis, and Horus in themselves constitute the Monad, the Duad, and the Triad of our Internal Being."
When you enter into initiation, because we are following the college of Egypt in the internal worlds, you find the archetypes of your Internal Being represented in the Central Sun as Osiris, Isis, and Horus. And when you face those archetypes it is because you are very high in the initiation. Remember it is written that the prophet said:
"When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. - Hosea 1: 11
We explained that Israel is Tiphereth, the human soul that encompasses all of the archetypes, all the parts of the God Ra. Our soul is divided into different part inside of us, bottled up into lust, anger, pride, laziness, lasciviousness, lies, etc., trapped within all of those defects that we have. The ego is a legion where all of the parts of Osiris are divided, which are also all of the parts of Israel.
ISRAEL is a word that must be analyzed.
‘IS’ reminds us of Isis and the Isiac Mysteries.
‘RA’ reminds us of the Solar Logos. Let us remember the disc of RA found in the ancient Egypt of the Pharaohs.
‘EL’ is ‘EL’. ‘EL’ is the interior, profound God within each one of us. In sequence and correct etymological corollary, the people of Israel are constituted by the various parts of [Osiris] the Being. - Samael Aun Weor
The Divine Mother Isis, Mary, has her power in the throat; the Divine Mother has her power in the genitalia, when we are in chastity; in Kabbalah, the throat and the genitalia are represented by two letter 'Hei” of the holy name, Iod, Hei, Vav, Hei.
In Egypt, when an initiate wanted to be one with the Elder of Days, who is Osiris-Ra, they asked him, "Oh, you want to receive Horus? You want to receive Christ within you? Tell us, how are the two letters Hei in you? Are they purified?"
If they are purified, He might descend and bring you up to the Elder of Days, the Father Osiris. So listen: the first “Hei” in the throat is called IS; the second “Hei” in the genitalia is called IS. In other words, both together spell ישיש IS- IS, Isis. Do you understand this? Isis is the holy name of the Divine Mother and She emerges from Osiris. Thus, ישיש Isis rises when somebody is working and has become completely purified in his/her matter. Their throat becomes "IS" and their genitalia becomes "IS." This means that his matter is virgin. That is why we said Mary is Isis because it is virgin and that syllable reminds us the rune IS which is the rune of the Divine Mother. This rune is pronounced in relation to the spinal column in order to raise the energy. It sounds like, "IIIIIIIIIIIISSSSS IIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSS" and these are the first two letters of Israel. So when IS becomes purified, then Ra, which is Horus (because this is how it is called also), incarnates in the human being. And that is why you call it IS, Ra, ISRA and these are the two parts of “El” the God Osiris.
Israel emerges from the very bottom of our physically. When we reach chastity, when we annihilate all of those bottles in which Osiris is divided and make one of Him, that is the equivalent of making Israel whole again. And that is why it is written: "When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.” - because Israel is divided in our psyche, sub-consciousness, unconsciousness. That is Israel; that is Pistis Sophia which we have to drag with willpower because only with willpower can we be born again.
Remember only, by the will of God which is scientific chastity, can we be born again and how we understand what the king of Israel is. This is why it is written that the King of Israel is Christ. indeed, no question about it. He is King of the Jews because the word Jew is related to Judah, the constellation of Leo, the house of “Ra”. Anyone who rises the sun to Tiphereth is called a Jew, IAO, or Iod Hei Vav, Daleth Hei Jehudah and also Jah; Jew and Jah represent the same thing. So, do you want to be a Jew? Then you have to reach the level of Judah, Jehudah, Tiphereth.
So, to be a true Jew is a matter of initiation. Yet, for that, you have to gather all of the parts of Israel within your psyche.
On the other hand, if you think that Jews are those which were born of blood, then, we will say, "Oh yes, those Jews who are born of blood are in Israel, in the Middle East, along with those who in any place of the world just follow their traditions, yet, they are not born of the will of God.” Those who are born of blood are those who follow any religious lineage and tradition, which relate to the inheritance of their race, but they are not born by the will of God.
Samael Aun Weor explained what we are explaining here, yet, with Hindu archetypes, he stated, "Did you ever hear about Brahma? He is, in himself, Father, Mother, and Son." Of course, Brahma is represented with three faces or with four but the fourth is always hidden. This symbolizes the holy Tetragrammaton. Agni, as it is written, is the son of Brahma and his wife is Sarasvati. So, as you see the symbols of Egypt that we are talking about here, are also represented with Hindu archetypes. This means that this is not an exclusivity of Egypt. You find these archetypes with other names in different religions. All of them are inside of us.
Remember that Osiris is a black Elohim.
"In the time of the Pharaohs in Egypt, the midnight sun, the sacred absolute sun, was always symbolized by Osiris, while his shadow, his reflection, his Lucifer, was symbolized by Typhon, Seth." - Tarot and Kabbalah by Samael Aun Weor
Remember, in regard to the doctrine of the Hebrews, Moses was the one who began writing the Book of Genesis. So, he brought all of this symbolism from Egypt and wrote it in another way for the Hebrews.
And to שת Seth to him also there was born a son and he called his name אנוש Enoch, [human being] then began profane people to call upon the name ofיהוה. - Genesis 4: 26
This means, alchemically speaking, "And to the sexual power" which is Lucifer, ”also there was born a son and and he called him, Enoch," which translated into English means human being. So this passage can be understood as saying, unto the sexual power of Seth, Typhon, which one has to control - if we manage to control that - then that sexual power will give birth to the human being inside of us; "this is how the profane people began to call upon the name Iod Hei Vau Hei." This is how it is kabbalistically written.
All of us are profane people. We might say, "Oh, that was for the antediluvians from the time of Lemuria and Atlantis." No! Listen, Seth-Typhon is inside of us it is the sexual power, it is Lucifer. So, if we are utilizing Lucifer, our sexual power, for the satisfaction of our bestiality, then the human being is not going to be born through that profane way within us; profane people can be born again only if they start to call upon the name of Iod Hei Vau Hei, but in the chaste way that we are teaching here. The contraction of Iod Hei Vau Hei is IAO, JAH. There exist millions of profane people singing, "Hallelujah, Hallelujah!" Yes, they believe in the Lord. So, what? Listen, the one that - according to the gospel of John - becomes a true human being is the one who is born by the will of God, and this is done not merely by believing on him in our mind or by singing hallelujah. What is the will of God? It is Seth, Typhon. Do you see how Typhon is represented with the head of a dog? The dog always represents sexual power and it is written that Typhon, Seth, was the twin brother of Osiris, the head; now we comprehend how, as in the story of Cain and Abel, Typhon, the twin kills his brother Osiris; both myths hide the same symbolism. Cain resurrects and thereafter Abel resurrects within him as Seth. Both represent Seth, objective reasoning. Do you see how everything is hidden in the Bible? It is the same symbolism , archetypically speaking.
Let us talk about P'tah, which is our Inner God that splits asunder into all of these archetypes. these elements because God is Gods inside of us. They are different parts that we have to unite in order to become an Elohim or children of God as the Gospel states.
The WAS scepter represents the sexual power of Seth.
The Ankh Cross represents masculine-feminine polarities.
The Djed pillar represents Osiris' spinal column.
These three combined symbols represent the three creative powers of our Inner God.
In the middle of the chest of P'tah, the Father, we find the "Was Scepter" which has the head of Seth on top. This symbolizes the fire that we have inside the medulla, the sexual power that comes from the bottom of our spinal column. The two ankh crosses which are in the hands of P'tah as the two keys in the hands of Peter: One key of gold and the other key of Silver, represent man and woman, the masculine and feminine sexual powers that we need to handle in order to hold the Djed, the spinal column. All of us have a spinal column but to hold the spinal column is to hold the power of Osiris and Seth. The God of Djed is Osiris, yet, our own particular Osiris is in the underworld divided into many pieces called egos, vices, errors, that we have within. We have to gather the God Djed from the underworld and to transform him into the God of Djedu, the Lower Egypt. The way that this is done is by rising Seth, the sexual energy. This is why the throne of Osiris is symbolized by the spinal column but the spinal column is also represented by Seth, Typhon, thus, they dispute over the power of it. If you know Egyptian mythology, you know that Seth wants the power of Osiris and That is why he kills Him. Thus now, Osiris is dead, killed, inside of us. Now, we need to follow the Divine Mother Isis in order to make our own matter virgin, in order to resuscitate Osiris with the help of Horus. All of this Egyptian symbolism is related with Christmas.
The symbolism of Christmas is not a patrimony of the Catholic church or any other Christian denomination. It belongs to the Cosmos. Every year, the sun is reborn and gives life to nature, which symbolizes the Divine Mother. Just as the sun revives nature every year, likewise we also have to resuscitate our own Lord in our own nature. Everybody was waiting for the end of the world yesterday (December 21, 2012) but don't worry, the end of this profane world will come sooner or later, when nobody expect it and it won't be announced on the internet or on television.
Nevertheless, blessed are those who celebrate the end of the world in the initiatic way (through psychological death) because we need to annihilate all of those defects and vices that trap Osiris inside of us, or if you would like to say, the parts of Joseph, the power of the Lord. That is why it is written that these three divine symbols indicate the three powers of our Inner God.
Somebody was asked me, "Is it true that Catholics do not worship the Virgin Mary?" and I said, "Of course! They are fornicators. How are fornicators going to worship the Divine Mother?" All of those who are in chastity, who follow the path of chastity, take care of their own body, the Inner Virgin inside, in order for the Lord to come into the world. Without the Virgin Mary, the Lord cannot come into the world. Without the Virgin Mary, without Isis, the Lord cannot perform all of the work that he needs to perform. And for that we need to study the Christic Esotericism in order to understand what Christianity is and not to just follow Belial. Who is Belial? The children of Bellial are the ones who follow the dogmas, ignorantly. They are the ones who when they reach Christmas, they drink one bottle, two bottles, three bottles of wine, and get drunk; yes, this is the way they celebrate Christmas.
The holy tabernacle of Christ which is Christmas, should be celebrated by drinking the wine of meditation in the cup of perfect concentration or the wine of alchemy in chastity as the divine couple, Mary and Joseph, who also represent the priest and priestess of the path.
Yet, profane people, fornicators, are anxious for the arrival of Christmas in order to get drunk, yes, they think that is the way to celebrate it; indeed, that is the way demons celebrate it.
We have to know what Christ is, whether Father, Son, or Holy Spirit, because He is the Holy Trinity, and these powers reside in your sexual organs and your throat. You have to purify them in order to become a true Christian, a true Gnostic, a true Muslim, a true Buddhist.
In any true Christmas celebration, the Lord, which is Chokmah, sends his light to all of the people in the temple. Remember that we explain what the temple is. The temple is your own body. This is why it doesn't matter what nationality we are, or how we name that Christic Force. Christ amongst the Japanese people is called Amida; amongst the ancient Mexicans He is called Quetzalcoatl; in China, Christ is called Fu-ji or Avalokiteshvara. It has many names in different religions.
For Horus, the Christ, emerges as the lighting from Isis and Osiris, the Black Elohim of heaven, and thus flashes from Tiphereth, the east, and is seen even in Malkuth, the west. "So shall also the coming of the son of man be."
So, when Yeshua was baptized by Jochanan, Isis, as a serpent of brass, went up straight way out of the water and lo the heavens were opened unto him and he saw the son of Osiris descending like a falcon and lighting upon him and lo Osiris from heaven said, "This is Horus my beloved son in whom I am well pleased." Thus Jochanan said:
“Hail Falcon, Son of Osiris, Son of Ra, Haroeris, beloved one, of golden crown and diadem, Conqueror of Evil, destroyer of the wicked, Conqueror of the Living, justified before your Divine Father Osiris. I have come forth, justified in your presence, for I have conquered our enemy who invaded our lands. His chariot is broken, his bow cast down, his dagger sheathed, and his (severed) head is beneath your sandals . His army is destroyed and those who worship him have fled into the wilderness.
“Hail Horus, God of light, Lord of Divine Vengeance, God of the just, Knight of Victory, O Zeesar of the Populace. Hail Horus of the Horizon, Horus of the Two Lands, Horus of the Womb, Horus the Child, Horus the Greater, Horus of the Moment (of conception), Horus the Christ; Hail unto you.
“O Horus, guardian of the people, grant us divine protection for we are your followers and provide sustenance in your temples. So declares Haroeris, justified and eternal.”
"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." - Isaiah 9:6
Audience: In Egypt, the Sun Sirius was important as the Polar star, and our sun and its planetary system that revolves to each other and Sirius and the dog star, they say that represents Isis and Anubis in different levels, can you explain?
Instructor: Are you referring to the Polar Sun? In ancient Egypt, they were studying the Lord. They understood that the Lord was “Ra,” the Solar energy called in Hebrew the Ain Soph Aur and this manifested itself in Chokmah and finally, as Horus when incarnated into any human being. But when addressing the Lord Ra, the Cosmic Christ, they knew that our own particular sun, and the Polar Sun, as well as Sirius and any sun of the universe are the physical vehicle of that Cosmic Christ. If we unite all of the suns of the universe, we make a gigantic cosmic body that would be the physical body of what we call Christ or Ra. Symbolically, our sun is only a cell of the body of Ra, and the planet Earth feeds itself with its light. That is why Jesus of Nazareth, when representing Ra, said, "I am the light of the world" because the Cosmic Christ, Ra, was talking through him. Thus Osiris-Ra is inside of us too because the solar light coagulates and becomes life in the plant, in mineral, in animal, and inside of our sexual organs. So, we are the only ones that have the capability to transform that light and that light is carried by our sexual fire, symbolized by Lucifer, the sexual power, the dog star that rotates around Sirius. He is the brother of Osiris because you always find that the two polarities confront each other. When Jesus was baptized, he had to face, esoterically speaking, his twin brother who is trying to tempt him because he is receiving power from him, but Jesus is worshipping God. This is a profound symbol. And, of course, that Typhon, Seth, is inside of us, symbolized by the black moon Lilith and all the moons of all the suns of any system, because we are children of the moon right now. We need to purify ourselves in order to become children of the sun, of Horus. Remember that Christ has the power to make us into children of God. If he has the power to make us into children of god. Who are we? Children of the devil, of course. It's logical, right?
Audience: Are a falcon and a sparrow hawk the same thing?
Instructor: I understand that a falcon and a sparrow hawk are two names for the same bird. Such a bird, like the white dove, symbolizes the power of the Holy Spirit. It is written that when Jesus was baptized the Holy Spirit, in this case Osiris, descended on him as the form of a white dove.
Audience: Who are the least in the kingdom of God?
Instructor: Yes, That is a good question. It is written in the Gospel of John that there is no greater prophet ever shown than John the Baptist. This is because John the Baptist encompasses all of the archetypes from Yesod, Netzach, Hod, and Tiphereth. All of that is John and to see John, the true human being appearing, is the highest of all of them. But he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is bigger than him. That means that not all the ones that reach Tiphereth take the direct path because when someone takes the direct path the path of compassion, of charity, then the Lord chooses him as John the Baptist symbolizes that light and chooses to sacrifice himself for humanity. Other Buddhas who reach that level choose to enter into Nirvana and they choose to not sacrifice themselves for humanity. They just follow the spiral path and say, "I don't want to sacrifice myself because human beings are selfish and if I do it, they will probably kill me." So. they choose not to descend back to earth, but to the one that follows the direct path the Lord says, "this one I will take in order to help other souls" and that one reaches the incarnation of Christ in the Venustic Initiation of the Lord. And he starts in the very bottom so he is less in the kingdom of heaven which is the kingdom of the children of God but he is bigger than anyone who reaches mastery because the Lord is with him. And that lower level is the black king, the black wise man because there are three wise men that come to celebrate Christ: the black king, the white king, and the yellow king. The black is at the very bottom, the white is in the middle, and the yellow is at the very top. That is of course the symbol of the manger of Bethlehem, the worship of the Lord. Do you have another question?
Audience: Master Samael speaks about the importance of knowing the "Three Marys of Christianity." Could you elaborate about what the Three Marys are in relation to this lecture?
Instructor: The Three Marys in Christianity represent Mary in our own physicality, Mary in nature, and Mary in the cosmos, the three aspects of Isis. There are other two aspects, of course, because when we talk about the different aspects of the Divine Mother we say there are five but we synthesis them to three which are symbolized by the three wives of the holy Trinity of Hinduism. These three are: the wife of Brahma which is Sarasvati, the wife of Vishnu which is Lakshmi and the wife of Shiva which is Shakti-Parvati. She has other two aspects, but these are the three. They symbolize the three aspects that we have to worship.
We worship our own Mother Nature in the way we explain here, through chastity. Then the Divine Planetary Mother Nature which is the whole planet. The whole nature is Her body. We celebrate the Divine Feminine aspect of God whose body is nature and all of the creatures . We have to respect and help them. And the Mother in the Cosmos, the Akasha, where all of the planets are floating, rotating, around their respective suns, that is the Cosmic Mother. That substance, which is the ether in space, the Divine Mother in other words, has no form but She takes any form in front of her son, in front of her devotees.
When you invoke your Divine Mother in the internal worlds, depending on what you are asking, She can appear in front of you as a violet light that will penetrate you and all of your inner bodies and then you will feel bliss. She can appear and take the shape of a women in white tunic also, or the shape of any other deity depending on your religion. If you are following Taoism She will appear like Quan-Yin; if you are following Buddhism, She may take many shapes. We find in Buddhism many goddesses that relate to the many forces of the Divine Mother. The main thing is this: no one can follow the path of perfection or salvation if he or she is an ungrateful son or daughter that doesn't worship his or her own Divine Mother because if one worships the Lord Christ, we have to understand that the Lord comes through the Divine Mother. An example is that any avatar whether is Krishna, Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha, all of them had a mother even in the lower level. If I am here talking to you and your listening to me it is thanks to our mother because she had us nine months in her womb and we can't be ungrateful. So we give thanks to our physical mothers as well. That is why there is a book that Samael Aun Weor wrote called The Virgin of Carmel which is included in Christ and the Virgin. it has an explanation of who the mother of Jesus was and also the explanation of how the Lord comes into this world through these two aspects Joseph and Mary which we explained today. So if you by any chance get that book, do not read it literally, because the Master wrote first about the physical mother and then he explains, in an esoteric manner, how the Lord descends through Joseph and Mary, priest and priestess. That is this alchemical work that we must perform in order to awake the Lord in different levels, levels that you learn and study in The Three Mountains for instance or in The Perfect Matrimony and many other books written by the master Samael Aun Weor.
