“For θεός (the Theomertmalogos) so loved the Kosmos, that he gave (his glorious son of the dawn,הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar) his only begotten υἱός, that whosoever has faith on him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For θεός (the Theomertmalogos) sent not his υἱός (the glorious son of the dawn,הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar) into the Kosmos to condemn the Kosmos; but that the Kosmos through him might be saved. Whosoever that has faith on him is not condemned: but whosoever that has not faith on him is condemned already, because he did not have faith in the name (הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar, the glorious son of the dawn) the only begotten υἱός τοῦ θεός (the Theomertmalogos).
And this is the condemnation, that (lucem) light is come into the Kosmos, and men loved darkness rather than (lucem) light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates (lucem) the light, neither comes to (lucem) the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that does truth comes to (lucem) the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in θεός (the Theomertmalogos).” - John 3: 16-21
With this lecture, we are entering into the second part of this series on the mysteries of Lucifer. Remember that we stated that Lucifer is a Latin word, which means "Light carrier" or "Light and Fire" or "Light and Force." In synthesis, Lucifer is an energy that is represented in many myths. When this energy enters into our own, individual psychosomatic nature, it transforms itself into Satan, as a consequence of our darkened psychology, our ego. Thus, Satan is the same Lucifer, but blackened, stained, because of our tri-centered animal behavior, most especially our sexual behavior. That is why Master Samael Aun Weor stated:
The one who whitewashes the devil (meaning Satan), turning it into its resplendent and primogenitary state, one who dies in oneself, here and now, liberates the chained Prometheus. Thus, Prometheus pays the individual with abundance because he is a colossus with power over the heavens, the Earth, and the infernos.
Lucifer-Prometheus, radically integrated with all of the parts of our Being, makes of us something distinct, a different and exotic creature, an archangel, a terrific and divine power.” - Samael Aun Weor
Lucifer in its highest aspects relates to the Holy Tetragrammaton, which is Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, the holy name of Elohim. Thus, Lucifer as Deity projects its shadow within us, since that force itself cannot enter into our individuality due to the fact that we do not yet possess the necessary recipient, to which we give the name, the Solar bodies. Therefore, because of that fact, Lucifer—as our Inner Divinity that is represented by Jehovah, Iod-Chavah, the Tetragrammaton—projects its shadow in us, and such a shadow is precisely Satan, the shadow of Lucifer.
“Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I [the glorious son of the dawn,הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar] am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bears witness of me.
Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father?
Jesus answered, You neither know me, nor my Father: if you had known me, you should have known my Father also.” - John 8: 12-19
“The doctrine of Jesus is Christic esotericism, the Solar Religion of all ages and centuries. The Gnosticism taught by Jesus is the religion of the Sun, the primeval Christianity of the Gods of the dawn.” - Samael Aun Weor
Christ, the light of the world, the glorious son of the dawn [הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar] said:
“I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?” - Luke 12: 49
However, due to the fact that we do not know how to keep his alchemical fire lit brightly, because of our fornication, we turn his fire within us into a black entity, Satan. This is why it is stated in Greek mythology that Prometheus, who we see in this graphic, is that Titan that stole the fire from Heaven in order to benefit humankind. Why did he steal the fire? Because it is a patrimony of the Gods. Only the Gods can control the fire; thus, Prometheus, the glorious son of the dawn [Hillel Ben Shaharהילל בן־שחר] descends from heaven and gives himself as fire to human kind, and therefore he is punished, his fate to be chained to the rock of sex, named the mountain of Caucasus or the Caucasian Mountains. As we see there, he is liberated by Hercules, because Prometheus means "He, who sees or who oversees the future." Thus, he knew that in the future, a Bodhisattva, a Son of Binah, a Son of Zeus and Hera, who in greek was named Ἡρακλῆς, Hēraklēs - “the Glory of the Divine Mother Hera” the Latin Hercules, was going to come and through sexual alchemy liberate him from that punishment that Zeus placed upon him.
This is a marvelous myth that needs explanation, because it is necessary for us to understand the meanings of this myth, this Greek mythological mystery, which is also written about in the Bible. By studying Kabbalah and Alchemy we can understand the meaning of it.
As you see in the graphic, Hercules killed the vulture, which every day had been pecking at and eating the liver of Prometheus. This was the punishment of Prometheus: to be chained to a rock, unable to defend himself, and to have his liver eaten every day by a vulture. During the night his liver would heal, and the next morning the scenario would repeat itself. Thus, such is precisely the great punishment or martyrdom that this God, this Titan receives.
It is necessary for us to understand that in Gnosticism, when we address God, we know that he is not a person, an individual, but Elohim: many forces, energies, archetypes. Thus, Prometheus is precisely that archetype that sacrifices himself for humanity, because he is the only archetype that enters as a part of God within us. Upon him is the shame of fornication; that archetype is that part of God that always knows how lustful we are. That is why in the Bible we see that it is Satan who always tells Jehovah how the soul behaves on Earth. We cannot hide from Satan, since he is the shadow of God, his reflection. Yes, we have transformed that Lucifer into an ugly, blackened individual. Lucifer, as Satan, reflects all of our ego, our defects, vices, errors that we have in our subconsciousness. However, by annihilating the vulture (that symbolizes lust) is how Prometheus is liberated.
So, as long as we have lust, Prometheus cannot be liberated from the rock. The rock, as we know, symbolizes the ninth sphere, Yesod. In Gnosis we always address the rock of Yesod, which, according to the Masons, is rustic in the beginning; unformed, unchiseled. We have to chisel that rock and to make of it cubic, little by little. The tools that we use, the chisel and hammer, symbolize imagination and willpower respectively. We shape and perfect that stone with the alchemical work, with the energy, the fire that in itself is the same Prometheus. He is the one that carries the fire and in the fire is the light, but that force can be used in the different ways. That is why it is written that Lucifer-Prometheus is the twin brother of Hercules, in other words, the twin brother of Christ.
In the book of Job, it is described how that alchemist continually rose up early in the morning and offered burnt alchemical offerings to Jehovah Elohim, Binah, the Holy Spirit. And how Jehovah said unto Satan:
"Hast thou considered my servant Job (Jesus, Moses, Mohammad, etc.), that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears Elohim, and (who through this alchemical offering) move away from evil?..... Behold, all that he has is in thy power." - Job 1: 8, 12
And in the book of Luke it is described how after this daily ceremonial baptism or mikveh מקוה, Satan and Jesus Christ have the following conversation:
“And Jesus being full of the Holy Spirit returned from Jordan, and was led by the (Holy) Spirit into the wilderness, being forty days (Mem, water) tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
And the devil said unto him, If thou be [the glorious son of the dawn,הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar] the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.
And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship (Jehova Elohim, Binah, the Holy Spirit) the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be [the glorious son of the dawn,הילל בן־שחר Hillel Ben Shahar] the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against the stone (of Yesod).
And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt (Jehova Elohim, Binah, the Holy Spirit) the Lord thy God.
And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
And Jesus returned in the power of the (Holy) Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.” - Luke 4: 1-14
Thus Satan, the Devil, is the opposite of Lucifer, the glorious son of the dawn, Hillel Ben Shahar היללבן־שחר. The higher part of Satan, the shadow, is Lucifer. This shadow of Jehovah Elohim, Binah, the Holy Spirit, that we call Satan tempts the Human Soul within. Binah, the Holy Spirit, carries the light of Chokmah; Binah carries Lucifer, which is Christ, who in the Venustic initiation is incarnated in order to purify and to transform that Soul into an Archangel. In Roman terms we will say, that Anima or Filius Dei becomes a Deus with the help of Hercules or Herakles, as taught in Greek mythology.
Herakles means the "Aura of Hera"; it is the Aura of Binah, the Divine Mother. It is Hera, Binah, the Divine Mother that gives birth to that Christ inside the Human Being. Once Lucifer is inside the alchemist, he is transformed into Satan, who will tempt that Human Soul, which is called the Son of Man (Filius hominis), this, in order to annihilate every single bestial animal element and to transform the (Filius hominis) Son of Man into a Super Hominis. That is the whole mystery of this Prometheus or Lucifer.
So, the Greek Prometheus, the Latin Lucifer is that part inside us that grants us sexual strength. Prometheus-Lucifer is the living fire in all matter. Prometheus-Lucifer is in the water, the air, the earth, in every element; it is that fire, the burning bush that sustains life. Thus, to pronounce ourselves against Lucifer is to pronounce ourselves against life.
Fortunately, the level in which we are right now, the Great Divinity gave us the opportunity to overcome that fire and to use it for our own benefit, in order to become an Archangel. However, in order to be an Archangel, we first have to be an Angel; and, in order to be an Angel, we have to be a Human Being. We are not yet Human Beings, we are just humanoids, intellectual animals! But the gift, the boon of Prometheus is inside of us, inside of everybody, and that is the point.
Let us now look at the graphic of the tree of life and also the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the midst of the garden, in order to explain this better. Here we find the quotation of Genesis 3:1-6, in which the Bible talks to us about the serpent:
"Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which Jehovah Elohim had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath Elohim said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For Elohim doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat", like a beast. - Genesis 3: 1-6
Obviously, the meaning of the former quotation is hidden; there is an alchemical element that needs to be explained, to be understood. By studying the Tree of Life is how we understand this hidden alchemical element. The serpent itself, Nahash נחש in Hebrew, is that fiery element that we have to control. It is not a literal serpent per se, but a serpentine fire that develops in the spinal column. If you observe the shape of your spinal column, you will discover that it has a serpentine form. In Sanskrit this serpentine fire is called Kundalini, and in Hebrew, Nahash Nahashoth נחש נחשת, which means, “serpent of brass.” In ancient times the Kabbalists that knew the alchemical mystery of that serpentine fire called themselves the Nahashim Seraphim נחשים השרפים. The Nahashim Seraphim נחשים השרפים are the same Sanskrit Nagas who knew the mystery of the serpentine fire, and who worked with this fire through sexual Alchemy. To comprehend this, we have to study the Tree of Life. Understanding this, let us begin from the top, the canopy of this Tree of Life, in order to understand it.
The Ain Soph Aur is in English translated as, Limitless Light. On the graphic of the tree of life we wrote the Hebrew letters for, Hillel Ben Shahar. Hillel is the word that is translated as Lucifer in the Bible; however, Lucifer is a Latin word. The meaning of Hillel is “glorified one,” Ben Shahar means “son of the dawn.” The dawn, the beginning of any cosmic day, begins in the Ain Soph Aur, and this is what we call Hillel Ben Shahar, “glorified son of the dawn.” In other words, this glorified son of the dawn is Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, because the Ain Soph, plus the three primary forces that form the first triangle of the Tree of Life, are the four elements that form Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, which we call the Glorian or Hillel Ben Shahar. This is the glorified element that all of us have within. Each one of us has its own particular Hillel Ben Shahar, that part of our Monad. Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, Jehovah in the Bible, is the higher aspect of that.
The shadow of that Hillel Ben Shahar is sent down into the Human being that is symbollically called Adam, and that is placed in the upper Eden. When you observe the Tree of Life, you will see that we have the upper Eden and the lower Eden. This Adam that was made by Jehovah (the upper triangle) is represented by Gedulah (also called Chesed), mercy. Gedulah means greatness, Chesed is mercy. So that is the Heavenly Adam created by Adam Kadmon, the Superior Being, and placed in the upper Eden.
This Being, this Adam represents that humanity that was created in the beginning of this planet Earth. Remember that right now we are in the fifth root race. Previous to our current root race there were four other root races. The first, the second, and the third root races are represented by Adam as an androgynous being. Androgynous meaning, with two polarities in one body. Adam was the name of that humanity that existed in other times; it is not one individual, but all the individuals from the Protoplasmic, Hyperborean and Lemurian root races.
It was precisely at the end of the third root race, the Lemurian root race where the division of sexes began. Here is where we find that Eve was taken from Adam. Eve is precisely the feminine aspect of that androgynous Adam, that came to be as a consequence of the division of sexes in Malkuth. This root race in which we are right now is in the Terrestrial period, the lowest, denset of the periods, the epochs in which this humanity is evolving. The Terrestrial period of this present humanity began in the Atlantean epoch; the first three root races—Protoplasmic, Hyperborean and Lemurian—were the recapitulation of other manifestations that happened in other dimensions, other rounds.
In this three-dimensional world in which we are, our existence is physical, three-dimensional and that physicality began to materialize at the end of the Lemurian root race. It was a that time that the planet - which is called Malkuth (Earth) or Adamah, which means “ground” - started to crystallize physically. And, it was at that time Adam, the androgynous Adam, was separated into the male and female sexes, and that is what we call Eve, the physicality.
So, it was during that epoch that individuals began being born with either a male body or female body. Before that, that humanity had both sexes in one body; thus, they didn't need sexual act. When they were divided into male and female sexes, in order to form the Terrestrial period (Malkuth), then sexual cooperation became necessary, in order to procreate. In order to do that, Prometheus-Lucifer, the fire, was indispensable. Lucifer is that fire that gives sexual strength to the man in order to have erection, and to the woman, in order for her to have sexual humidity, so that she can receive the phallus. That is a patrimony of the fire.
Here, according to Kabbalah, we find the four elements: fire is related with Geburah, which means Justice; water is related with Gedulah, which means Greatness; the air to Tiphereth, which means Splendor or Beauty; and the Earth itself, as we are explaining here, is Malkuth, the bottom of the Tree of Life. This earth is the outcome of the fire. We can easily observe this if we go to a place like Hawaii, or other islands of the Pacific or the Atlantic ocean; we see how the burning lava that emerges from volcanoes dries and forms earth, islands. The fiery magma becomes solid earth. That is why in Kabbalah we state that Malkuth, the solid earth on which we are right now, is the outcome of Geburah, because Geburah is the fire.
Above Geburah we have Binah, which is called Jehovah-Elohim in the Bible or the Holy Spirit in Christianity. The fire of Geburah itself is the messenger of the Holy Spirit, which is that pure sexual creative force that manifests as El Shaddai אל שדי in Yesod, the sexual organs. In the androgynous Adam, that pure creative sexual force of Binah acts without any problem, any error. Why is this? Well, for instance, it is stated that the Hyperboreans were self-fertilizing; from their calves they would grow a kind of womb, where the child would develop and eventually separate, becomes their own individual. So, the energy of the Holy Spirit (Binah) was acting freely at that time, because humanity didn't need sexual cooperation; there was no misuse of the sexual force. But, when the separation of sexes was effectuated, then sexual cooperation became indispensable. In order to perform sexual act, the man needs an erection and the woman, humidity. That element then that is necessary for this act is fire.
We know that when the blood rushes to your sexual organ, if you are male, you have an erection. And for the woman, when the blood rushes to her Yoni, her sexual organ, she is excited, and ready to receive the phallus. Lucifer is an indispensable element for the sexual act. That is why when you observe the following graphic, you find Apollo, as the fire of Geburah, which relates to the solar light. The solar light and fire of Geburah descends from the left side of the Tree of Life to Hod, which is the astral light that we find when we go to sleep and enter into the fifth dimension, which is the astral world. The astral light of the fifth dimension feeds us through the vital body, which in the adult female physicality nourishes the baby in her uterus and later through her breasts. The moon also relates with the vital body, the superior part of the physical body. When that happens, what we call in Hebrew, Geburah-El גבורה-אל enters into activity.
Baby Herakles, son of Zeus and Alcmene, was favored by his father, who sent Athena, Greek goddess of wisdom, to nourish him. Athena, decided to take him to Hera to suckle. Hera agreed to suckle the baby. As the baby drinks Hera’s milk, meaning, as the baby drinks the Kleos, glory, sun, aura, light, of Hera through her breast, the baby transforms into Herakles (“Ἡρακλῆς, the Aura of Hera”). The baby bites her nipple, and Hera pushes him away in pain. The milk that squirts out forms the γαλαξίας Milky Way or Galaxy.
This Geburah-El גבורה-אל is translated in the Bible as Gabriel גבריאל, the angel, which is before Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, the Lord Jehovah. This Gabriel גבריאל is composed of the words Geburah and El, which means God. This is the fire of God, or justice of God. In the tree of life we find that Gabriel גבריאל is related with the Moon. When you study Gnostic Kabbalah, you know that Hod is governed by the Moon, and Yesod is also governed by the Moon. In Klipoth, Yesod is what in the Bible is called Na'amah or Nahemah, as we say it in the conjuration of the 7, namely:
By the divine and human name of El Shaddai אל שדי, and by the sign of the pentagram that I hold in my right hand, in the name of the angel Anael, by the power of Adam and Eve, who are Iod-HaVah, begone Lilith! Let us rest in peace, Nahemah!
Anael is Eros, the prince of Hod, the astral light, yet, in Klipoth Hod relates to Lilith, which is the black moon. The Zohar states:
“Tuval Cain (the intellectual fornicator mind) introduced weaponry to the world (of Netzach). A female (adulterous) was born with him (in Yesod). People (who enjoy adultery) were going astray after her, and she was called Na'amah. From her were born other spirits and demons (of whoredom). They were hovering in (the lascivious intellectual fornicator mind) the air, revealing (whoredom or porno graphic) matters to the other (lustful egos) who were below (in the emotional center). While attached to her aspect, this Na'amah used to be in a state of great (sexual) commotion. She still lives, dwelling among the roars of the great sea (of Yesod, sex). She comes out, adulterate with people, warms herself by them in a man's dream by his lust, and attaches herself to (the soul of) him. She takes that (naughty) passion, but not more. From that lust, she becomes pregnant and produces many (naughty) species in the (humanoid psychosomatic) world. These (naughty) children, that she bore to humans are (incubi) to human females who conceive from them and bear (subcubi) spirits (to males). They go to the primordial Lilith (in Klipoth, Hod, the emotional inferior center) and she nourishes them.” - Zohar
Understanding this, we see that Gabriel גבריאל, kabbalistically and alchemically speaking, is the solar fire of Geburah, descending down the left side of the Tree of Life into Hod and becoming milk in the feminine breasts and semen in Yesod, the genitalia of El Shaddai אל שדי, in the alchemist that is not spilling the sexual force. However, if the alchemist does not take care of the gift of Prometheus, which is the fire, and reaches the orgasm or the spasm in the sexual act, then he falls into Klipoth, under the control of the demons, the Sheddim (שדים) Lilith and Nahemah, about whom the Zohar speaks in great depth.
In Klipoth, Lilith is Hod and Nahemah is Yesod, the two moons; these are psychological moons, which are related with sexual degeneration. Nahemah (Yesod) is related with adultery, prostitution, fornication, and Hod relates to homosexuality, lesbianism, and any type of sexual degeneration. The two moons are related with bestiality, but Gabriel גבריאל represents the opposite of this sexual degeneration. That is why you find that Gabriel גבריאל, the messenger of the Holy Spirit (Binah), always comes to the initiate to guide him,
So, we find that the solar fire of Geburah descending into Hod (breasts) and Yesod, the genitalia, becomes El Shaddai אל שדי, in other words, Geburah-El, Gabriel. Remember that in the previous lecture we stated that Gabriel גבריאל was the one that presented himself before Mary, the mother of Jesus, and said: "you are going to be pregnant by the grace of Binah, the Holy Spirit". It is Geburah-El גבורה-אל who proclaimed this because that fire descends into El Shaddai אל שדי in Hod (breasts) and Yesod, the genitalia, from Geburah into Mary, who represents Malkuth. This is precisely what we call the initiation of Tiphereth, the Splendor, that any initiate is hoping to receive or to reach a certain level. This is what the Zohar calls the descent of the serpent, from Geburah, the left side, into Yesod, and that which tempts Eve, which is our own physicality. In other words, that fire that is called El Shaddai אל שדי, Lucifer or Prometheus, sacrifices himself from above, descends into our sexual organs and gives the gift of fire to our humanity.
When ignoramuses study mythology, they immediately think: "oh, it is the fire, with which we cook or when we make a bonfire and we get warmed, when we are cold." No! That fire has nothing to do with it, even though that fire is also born from this energy. The fire that this myth is symbolizing is the sexual fire. Without the sexual fire there is no life. Without the sexual fire, we wouldn't be here; you wouldn't be there, listening to this lecture and I wouldn't be here, giving this lecture. Thanks to that fire my father impregnated my mother and I was born, physically speaking; it is the same for you.
That is a fire that is a gift of Prometheus, but unfortunately, this humanity uses it in the wrong way. It is very rare to find someone that is utilizing that gift of fire wisely. And this is because people do not study Kabbalah and Alchemy.
Instead they watch sex and the city… just as they watch the sexual act, in any part of this planet, where you find that people are just enjoying the fire of Lucifer, in order to satisfy their lustful manias. That is why it is written Chavah חוה, Eve at the very bottom of the graphic of the tree of life, because Chavah חוה, Eve, represents our physicality, Chavah חוה, Eve, also represents our sexual organ that receives the serpentine fire, the gift of Prometheus. The serpentine fire descends and says:
"Yea, has Elohim said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden (meaning, the sexual energy), Elohim has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest ye die.” - Genesis 3: 1-3
Iod-Chavah or Jehovah, which is at superior part of the left pillar of the Tree of Life, stated: "You shall not eat of it (as beasts), neither shall you touch it, lest ye die."
Then, the serpentine fire says:
"You shall not surely die, (if you know how to take advantage of it, that is, if you know how to use a sexual act wisely). For Elohim does know that if in the day (in the light; remember, Elohim called the light day) you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened (by the light), and you shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil.." - Genesis 3: 4, 5
So the woman takes the advice of that serpentine fire, and is of course sexually excited, and, unfortunately, eats like a beast. That eating of the fruit means the reaching the orgasm, the spasm of the beasts. The only way to take advantage of that fire is by performing a sexual act between man and woman, and, instead of wasting that energy in the orgasm, sublimating that serpentine fire in order to awaken the Kundalini with the seven chakras; this, so that ones inner eyes can open, and we can come to know good and evil. Unfortunately, this humanity does not do that.
During normal animal sex, every time that animals perform the sexual act, they spill the sexual energy, expelling it out of their bodies; among animals fornication is normal. If we observe a bull and cow, they spill the sexual energy. Thus, we have to understand that in this universe there are two principles that we addressed in the other lectures. Those two principles are the Foolasnitamnian principle, which is for the Human beings, and the Itoklanos principle, which is for beasts, for animals.
When we perform the sexual act, if we transmute, if we sublimate the fire of Lucifer, then we are applying the Foolasnitamnian principle, and when we are under that Foolasnitamnian principle, the life span that we have, physically speaking, is about twelve to fifteen centuries, this is more than a thousand years. That is why we find in the Bible that Methuselah was nine hundred sixty and nine years old; and many other great men from the past who lived many years. These great individuals lived this long because they were under the Foolasnitamnian principle, that is the commonly habitual principle in any planet of any Solar System. That is why, when the so called extraterrestrials come to this planet, they see that we no longer are living under the Foolasnitamnian principle that the Lemurians, Hyperboreans and the Protoplasmic race were; we are now under the Itocklanos principle, which rules the beasts. This is due to the fact that we didn't take advantage of the serpentine fire, and as we read in Genesis, we ate the forbidden fruit.
What happens when we reach orgasm or the spasm? When that happens we leave the Foolasnitamnian principle and fall under the Itocklanos principle; on top of that, we build inside lust, anger, pride, vanity, laziness, gluttony, envy, etc., which is very common in the psyche of all animals, including intellectual animals like us who, regarding fornication, in this day and age are worse than irrational beasts.
Nonetheless, we call ourselves human beings, but we are not; we are humanoids, because only the humanoids fall into the Itocklanos principle. Let us take for example, when we were physically incarnated in Atlantis. Of course, we have since died, and been reborn many times, because we live under the law of return and reoccurrence, bound by the cycle of birth and death, bound by karma. People ironically call this "reincarnation", but reincarnation is another law, one that is only for humans that are advancing the higher levels.
So, when we were incarnated in Atlantis, there may have been extraterrestrials that we were in contact with, those same extraterrestrials, with the same physical body as they possessed during those times, returned to our planet, and they found that the souls that they were in contact in the Atlantean epoch are now incarnated within other bodies, but are more degenerated. This is very sad. This is one of the problems that this humanity does not understand.
Due to the elements that we are building inside, we have altered our psyche; this relates to Hod and Netzach, especially Hod, because it is the base or vehicle of desires, the Kama Rupa as it is called in Sanskrit. In other words, the Kama Rupa, body of desires, that we have within altered our psyche or Soul. As a consequence or corollary, the vital body, the very base of life of our physicality, is also altered. And of course, after that humanity in Lemurian epoch started fornicating like animals, the span of life started to decrease. For instance, in our present epoch, in the middle ages, humanity lived approximately one hundred and sixty years. But, unfortunately we have degenerated further and further, and in this time in which we live right now, if somebody reaches hundred years, he appears in Facebook or in the news. Life has become so short... people die at forty years old in this day and age. It is because of the Itoklanos principle that our lifespan is shortening. We are what is called, self-cursed.
In the book of Genesis, it is stated: "You will surely die,” meaning, you will surely lose that precious gift, which is at least to live thousand years. So imagine, if you had a body that would endure at least a thousand years; you could receive the doctrine, the instruction, and have enough time in order to do your psychological work, in order to develop your objective reasoning. But, now, if you want to really take advantage of the serpentine fire of Lucifer, you have to be very active every day, any place you are, if you want take advantage of that gift, that boon of Lucifer. Otherwise, if you follow the current of this humanity that celebrates fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, you will quickly go into the open hall of the lower levels of Klipoth, where you will develop more, but as a beast. This is precisely why we are giving this doctrine in this very moment, in order for you to understand that with it you are in the dilemma of to be or not to be.
“To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them.”
And Abel is the only one that can take advantage of it, because that gift, the boon of Prometheus is inside of each one of us.
This is why we wrote upon the tree of life, Habel Habelim הבל הבלים "vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities, the whole is vanity." And this is also what the Gnostic doctrine says, “the whole is breath.”
King Solomon based his book upon the seven breaths (Habelim הבלים) upon which each world is established. The pillars and foundations that sustain each world are called 'breaths (Habelim הבלים)', for just as the body cannot endure without Abel, so the world cannot endure without these 7 vanities or breaths mentioned by King Solomon. And these are seven, as it is written: "Vanity (1) of vanities (2), says the Preacher, Vanity (1) of vanities (2); all is vanity (1)." Altogether, there are seven. These are the seven breaths (or churches, chakras) corresponding to the throne or central nervous system.
We explained that vanity or breath in Hebrew is Habel הבל, which is Abel, the breath of life. This, according to Kabbalah, is divided into seven breaths in each of the seven bodies of Adam. Thus, unfortunately because of fornication, Abel, the breath of life, is killed and falls trapped into the 49 levels of Cain, the mind, and becomes vanity.
As we know the world now, everything is Habel הבל, vanity; all the humanoids that breathe are indeed Habel Habelim הבל הבלים "vanity of vanities.” Observe this humanity: everything revolves around sex and vanity. If you want to be famous, you have to follow vanity. Women and men are so identified with their own vanity, through which their lust, anger, pride and greed, self-esteem expresses itself. Everybody celebrates vanity. Such vanity, such breath is negative.
In order to develop and to free the positive vanity, which is dignity, the breath of life, we have to annihilate that vain animality within us, and to rise up on the Tree of Life from Adamah, the lower Eden. Remember that in the lower Eden Eve tempted Adam. Adam, in this case, individually speaking, represents the brain; Eve represents the sexual organs. So the sexual organs tempted the brain, how? The sexual organs gave sensation desire, orgasm, the forbidden fruit to the brain and the brain liked it. Thus, the brain and the sexual organs liked the orgasm of the beasts and lust entered into them. Since then humanoids started to multiply themselves as animals according to the Itoklanoz principle. By performing that act, the Itoklanos principle entered into them. Since that time, they began to multiply themselves as animals. Yes, this is what this humanity is. We multiply like the animals, there is no difference. That is why Prometheus is always misunderstood, especially in Rome, where he received the name Lucifer.
In the next graphic we see Prometheus with Athena, who is also named Minerva, the Goddess of wisdom. We see him giving fire to the human being; according to the myth, Prometheus took the fire from the Sun and put it into a cane, which now we understand why, since we already know that the type of fire which we are addressing is the sexual fire. Thus, this cane is our spinal column.
There in the reed (Soph סוף in Hebrew) is where he deposited the light from the sexual fire. That is why it is written in that myth that Prometheus himself was the one who created human beings; he was the one who molded humanity. As the Bible states: “Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים formed Adam of the dust (clay) of HaAdamah, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul.” So likewise, Prometheus formed with clay the first human being. Dust or clay are symbols; dust or clay represent the elements of Adamah, the Earth, that builds the human being inside of us.
“Metaphorically, Lucifer is the conductor-torch which helps the human being to find his route through the cliffs and the sand banks of life… Lucifer is the Logos in its more elevated aspect and (Satan) the ‘adversary’ in its inferior aspect, both reflecting themselves in and within each one of us. Lactacio, when speaking about the nature of Christ, makes of the Logos, the Verb, the “first begotten brother of Satan and the first of all creatures." - Samael Aun Weor.
Thus, the reflection of Satan is the ego and the reflection of the Logos is Lucifer. Both are inside everybody.
“The thief (the ego) comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I (Lucifer) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” - John 10: 10
Our goal indeed is to penetrate into the upper levels of our Being and to become one with him; that is our goal. But the only one that can take us there is Prometheus-Lucifer, who is Christ, there is no other one. That is why we, Gnostics say:
“Lucifer is stairs up to Heaven, and Lucifer is also stairs down to Hell, law is law and the law is fulfilled.”
All depends on which stairs we want to step upon. Let us now keep studying these two life principles.
“And it came to pass, when (the Androgynous) Adam (in Lemuria) began to multiply on the face of Adamah (which is Malkuth, their physicality), and daughters were born unto them (referring of course not to one person, but to all that Androgynous Adamic Race, that at that epoch, were dividing themselves into male and female sexes) that the Beni Elohim (children of the Elohim, children of God, it is how it is translated and all bibles) saw the daughters of Adam that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And Iod-Havah (Jehovah) said, My (Holy) Spirit shall not always strive within Adam to the (Foolasnitamnian) age, for in their (sexual) erring they are flesh (בשגם beshagam): thus, his days shall be (an Itocklanos age) an hundred and twenty years.”- Genesis 6: 1-3
Behold, his days will be (an Itocklanos age) a hundred and twenty years. This means that before, in earlier times, they were living in accordance with the Foolasnitamnian principle. Of course, the children of Elohim or Beni Elohim relate in the Tree of Life with the Sephirah Hod. Hod, at the level of Atziluth, is where we find the Beni Elohim; Hod is related to Kama Rupa, the body of desires. This means that those individuals who reached that level of angels in past cosmic days, those who we call the Beni Elohim, when the division of sexes started to happen in Lemuria, physically speaking, they saw that the daughters of Adam, in other words, those humans that were polarized with the feminine sex, were beautiful creatures. It was the same race, but divided in two sexes. When the two sexes are divided, the female aspect is the most beautiful part of the two sexes. For the Beni Elochim, the sexual act is prohibited. Thus, when they saw the daughters, they succumbed to temptation and engaged in the sexual act with them. This is why Jehovah said: "for in their (sexual) erring they are flesh," meaning, now that they are divided into two sexes their erring is in the flesh not in the spirit. Thereafter it is writen:
"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the Beni Elohim came in unto the daughters of Adam, and they bear children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." - Genesis 6: 4
In other words, these angels were reborn with Itoklanos physical bodies, obviously. Those Beni Elohim were Bodhisattvas of great masters that had androgynous Protoplasmatic bodies, Hyperborean bodies, Lemurian bodies. Now, because of the division of sexes, they too were with either male or female bodies. They also had to follow the evolution of the races. When those Beni Elohim that were being born with the male polarized body saw the daughters of Adam, they felt sexually aroused by the fire of Lucifer in them; the fire of Lucifer always invites you to perform the sexual act, such is its objective, such is its purpose, its goal.
So, there is nothing negative with Lucifer. It is just a fire that gives you sexual arouse, sexual impulse. If you follow it as animal, then you fall into temptation. But temptation is fire, and the triumph over temptation is light. Thus, Lucifer always stirs up within the human being the desire for the sexual act, in order to tempt him, to test him, so that he might build light within him. Unfortunately, the only thing that we build in this day and age is ego, darkness, because nobody takes advantage of the sexual fire. As it is written:
“And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of the man of the earth was great, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” - Genesis 6: 5. As in the past, presently, Jehovah is seeing that the wickedness of this present terrestrial Adam civilization is great.
Other translations say, “the wickedness of man was great in the earth,” because they don't know Alchemy; the real translation is "the wickedness of the terrestrial Adam,” meaning, the physical Adam, because the heavenly Adam, which is Chesed, the superior part of ourselves, is always pure, but the terrestrial Adam, the psycho-somatic humanoid polarized in a male or female body, always feels that the sexual force of Lucifer, the sexual impulse greatly. Every imagination of the thoughts of the heart of these psycho-somatic humanoid people, is only evil continually. Sexually speaking, at the end of the epoch of Lemuria, humanity was very degenerated, even to the point of having sex with animals, with beasts. We don't want to give more details of that degeneration, because we gave already many lectures where we talked about this. And this is why it is written:
"And it repented Jehovah that he had made the terrestrial Adam (or that he had divided the sexes, because they didn't take advantage of the boon of Lucifer), and it grieved him at his heart. And Jehovah said, I will destroy (the terrestrial) Adam (not the heavenly Adam, but the terrestrial Adam, the psycho-somatic humanoid, the lower part) whom I have created from the face of HaAdamah." - Genesis 6: 6. HaAdamah האדמה, the ground, the Earth, represents the terrestrial, three-dimensional part of the planet.
So when the Elohim wants to destroy humanity, Elohim is not addressing our “HUM”, our Spirit, our Divine Spiritual Soul, the two superior parts of the Monad that all of us have and which are pure. No! Instead Jehovah is addressing us our terrestrial psycho-somatic aspect, because we are filthy. If we continue living in this root race as a psycho-somatic humanoid, an intellectual animal, we will destroy the planet. We are already destroying it.
A lot of people are organizing themselves in order to save the planet. Listen, in order to save this planet from its eminent destruction, which it is agonizingly going through, it is possible only by annihilating the animality that we carry within, which is the cause of it. Greed is sucking the blood, called petroleum, the oil from the earth. And the people of this earth fight, making wars in order to control it. We are all at the center of this. People say: "Oh, we are not guilty." Yes, we are guilty! Because we have greed; we feed our greed, vanity, pride, lust, etc., through many unthinkable ways. Who of you, present in this classroom, is free of lust? Who in this country is free of lust? Who in this planet is free of lust? All of us have lust. And we have to fight against it in order to overcome and to take advantage of that boon of Prometheus-Lucifer.
This humanity is a Luciferian-Itocklanos humanity. Yes, it is Luciferian, but only from the animal point of view. Listen, all of us carry Lucifer-Prometheus, Christ, crucified inside, within our Yesod, our rock. Lucifer is not an individual, it is all the individuals. This blackened Satan-Lucifer, the Shedd-שד in us, is not one individual, it is all the individuals. But we always hypocritically like to point at others: "Satan is there, and our group is holy, it is filled with angels." Maybe it is, but fallen angels, because heavenly angels are in heaven.
“And Jehovah said, I will destroy Adam whom I have created from the face of the ground; both Adam (the psycho-somatic protoplasmic bodies), and beast (behemah בהמה, the humanoid physicality, in other words, the behemoth בהמות, beasts in plural), and the (ego or) creeping thing, and the fowls (intellectual animals) of the air (the mind); for it repenteth me that I have made them.” - Genesis 6: 7
This always happens at the end of every root race. The solar light, the serpentine force, creates a humanity, but when the Christic solar forces see that this humanity is not taking advantage of the solar force and they are behaving like behemoth (plural for behemah בהמה; behemoth בהמות are many beasts, behemah בהמה: one beast). When humanoids behave like behemoth בהמות, beasts, then the Sun destroys them, and this is what is going to happen with this humanity, no matter what we do... unless all of the billions of inhabitants of this planet choose the alchemical path and take advantage of the positive force of Lucifer. But this is an impossibility, a joke, we don't see that happening. Thus, only those few that will take advantage of that boon will see a new earth; only by walking this path will you see a new earth.
In this next graphic we find this beautiful writing of Greek mythology, with Prometheus, which is Lucifer, crucified on the rock of sex, saying:
"Oh divine ether! Breezes on swift bird-wings…
Behold what I, a God, from Gods endure!
And yet - what am I saying?- exactly I foresee
all that shall come to pass…
what is determined now…
To suffer the fatal destiny that fate (better say - that karma) has given me;
for I know well the Law of Hades [hell or inferno] is unconquerable…".
This is what Satan, the shadow of Lucifer says inside of us. Why? Because that part of divinity that can help us has been blackened by us, transformed into Satan, mingled with our ego, and causing it to descend into devolution; this is why he suffers. Lucifer is the only archetype in us that suffers for us, it is the only part of divinity that enters and mingles with our filthiness; the rest do not. Lucifer is the only part of our inner divinity that can tempt us, in order to liberate ourselves from the ego, and it is the only archetype that we curse. This is sad! It is the only archetype that sacrifices itself in order to do the work, and we have blackened it, and then we even curse it. It is just fire. If we use it in the wrong way, well, he goes with us to hell, and when the ego is disintegrated he is liberated along with our souls.
We quoted the following from the Secret Doctrine, but we have also added what we thought should have been written:
"(Because of fornication) The gift of Prometheus thus became a CURSE – though foreknown and foreseen by the HOST [Bodhisattvas] personified in that personage, as his name well shows. It is in this that rests, at one and the same time, its sin and its redemption." - The Secret Doctrine
Those Bodhisattvas or angels, the children of God, the Beni Elohim that chose to fornicate with those women knew what they were doing, and understood the consequences of their actions. They foresaw what was going to happen to them; remember, at that time, humanity was without ego. Even the ones that had not yet built their solar bodies, their senses were completely awakened. Master Samael states that during the time of Lemuria there were more than three hundred consonants, and fifty one vowels in their language. But now our language has only seven vowels; well, in our school we find only seven vowels, because we consider the "m" and "s" as vowels. And how many consonants? Twenty two or twenty three? Twenty seven sometimes. Why? Because our language is very degenerated. In the past times we spoke the golden language, and our senses were awakened, and we could see all of what was going to happen. But we chose fornication, because we couldn't control the sexual fire, the gift of Prometheus, and this is why there is an absurd justification that is also written in the Secret Doctrine that states:
"For the Host [of Bodhisattvas] that incarnated in a portion of humanity, though led to it by Karma or Nemesis (from past cosmic days), preferred free-will (better said, evil will) to passive slavery, intellectual (insurrection, that is) self-conscious pain and even torture "while myriad time shall flow" -- to inane, imbecile, instinctual beatitude. Knowing such an incarnation was premature and not in the programme of nature, the heavenly host, "Prometheus," still sacrificed itself to benefit thereby, at least, one portion of mankind." - The Secret Doctrine
The former quotation without parenthesis is wrong, because with the falling of those angels we did not benefit; on the contrary, we received more karma. But of course, the one that wrote that, did not know about the rules of sexual Alchemy.
So, no matter what the quotation of the Secret Doctrine states, nobody benefits when somebody degenerates. Why would we benefit from the fornication of angels? It is absurd. The only thing we got is suffering. Not even Lucifer receives benefit because of the fallen angels, because he is transformed within each one of them into Satan. Master Samael Aun Weor states:
"Vain thing is to mistake a downfall with a descent! These Deities did not descend, they fell, and this is different… Therefore and rightly so, this is why the Theogonies depict to us these divine Logoi as punished. Our Saviors, the Agnishvatta, the superior Titans of the luciferian fire, can never be cheated. They, [Hillel Beni Shahar הילל בני שחר- the glorified children of the dawn - those that didn't fall], know very well how to distinguish between what a downfall is and what is a descent." - Samael Aun Weor
In that myth you find how Hephaestus (Latin: Mulcifer), the god of fire and metalworking, chained Prometheus, but in this case, that Prometheus symbolizes the fallen angels who knew about these mysteries, but didn't care; they lost the divine aspect by falling into fornication, and that also is represented by Prometheus. So we have two aspects: the individual Prometheus inside, and also angels, fallen angels that fell into sexual degeneration. And that is why you find Mercury here, holding a caduceus of Mercury, which represents the spinal column. We see that Mercury is smiling, and saying: "you are punished, because you fornicated."
The mercury of philosophy is the semen; that is the philosophical water that we have to take advantage of, if we want to awake our mind, our mercurial mind, our Hermes, because this is how it is called in Greek mythology, Hermes and in Egyptian mythology it is called Thoth. But only by taking advantage of your sexual water, your semen, in the very sexual act. This is why Master Samael said:
"What happened then with Moloch? What occurred then with Andrameleck and his brother Asmodeus? What then with Belial? What then with Baal Pehor? What then with Jahve?… Luminaries from ancient times; yet, now horrifying (Sheddim שדים) Demons…" - Samael Aun Weor
We are naming just few of them there, because there are many demons, fallen angels that we find in hell, which fell into fornication and they became (Sheddim שדים) demons. But we have to understand that when we talk about Bodhisattvas, they are precisely the causal, mental, astral and physical vehicles of those deities. We are not talking about Chesed and Geburah, the two superior aspects, and that Luciferian aspect, that we call Jehovah: that aspect always remain pure. But, our own, particular Prometheus-Lucifer in our individuality is the one that, through the evil will in the human soul, fornicated.
So now we have that these (Sheddim שדים) demons are separated from their divine aspect; the divine aspect Chesed and Geburah of the Monad suffers, because they are stagnant, they cannot develop, because his human part is a demon. This is how we must understand the fall.
This is why many people that study esotericism and Kabbalah say: "but Moloch, Melech was worshiped, according to the Bible?" Yes, the Bible is referring to the higher part, the divine aspect of that individual. Unfortunately, after their fall, for instance, the demon Moloch was appearing and demanding the sacrifice of children for him, and that is demonic. The same happened with Andrameleck, Asmodeus, Belial and many other (Sheddim שדים) demons that are now in hell. Some people that practice witchcraft, demonology (I cannot even say the word, it is good that I cannot say it) are worshiping them, because this is common in this day and age. There is a lot of people that worship evil, they like to tattoo demons in their bodies, and they feel that having that type of tattoo in their body is cool. This is precisely why this humanity is falling, unfortunately. This is why the Secret Doctrine states:
"For the seed of (Chavah, Eve, the sexual organ, the) woman or lust (from our bestial psycho-somatic nature), bruised the head of the seed of the fruit of wisdom and knowledge, by turning the holy mystery of (Foolasnitamnian) procreation into (Itocklanos) animal gratification; hence the law of Karma "bruised the heel" of the Atlantean race."
Behold, what the heel symbolizes in Kabbalah. The heel symbolizes Malkuth. When you study the Tree of Life, you find Malkuth at its heel. Thus, in the Atlantean epoch, the Foolasnitamnian principle, the span of which is about twelve to fifteen centuries (the normal human span of life), became Itocklanos, animal, and the lifespan of people diminished little by little, because of this Lemurian disobedience. Thus, the root of the Atlantean root race was the outcome of sexual degeneration. And indeed, we are now in the Arian root race of Noah, and we are very degenerated. That is why the Secret Doctrine continues:
"By gradually changing physiologically, morally, physically, and mentally, the whole nature of the Fourth Race of mankind (the Atlanteans), until, from the healthy King of animal creation of the Third Race (the Aryan Root Race), man (better said, humanoids) became in the Fifth, our (root) race, a helpless, scrofulous (vicious) being, and has now become the wealthiest heir on (the five continents of) the globe to constitutional and hereditary diseases, the most (un)consciously and (none)intelligently bestial of all animals!" - The Secret Doctrine
Indeed, we are the most unconscious and non-intelligent bestial humanoids of all epochs! We have inherited many psycho-somatic manias, we have inherited a lot of subconscious filthiness. Thus, our problem lies in the fact that we enjoy the bestial Itocklanos principle, and continue worshiping psychological filth. If somebody, as they say, “comes out of the closet,” he appears there on TV, and everybody applauds them... we are amazed, infactuated with evil; we applaud degeneration and everybody says “that is good,” and everybody is happy. AIDS is spreading everywhere. And this is what we are. And of course, the leaders of those individuals who celebrate the bestial Itocklanos principle, are the (Sheddim שדים) demons in Klipoth.
Here we have another beautiful graphic of Prometheus, crucified on the hard rock of Caucasus, which symbolizes sex, the rock of Yesod. Below, the following quotation from the book of Daniel (דניאל), in order to point out that not only Jesus was born by the grace of Gabriel גבריאל, not only Mohamed received the instructions of Gabriel גבריאל, but also Daniel, because he was an initiate and an alchemist. It is written:
“And moreover, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel גבריאל (גבריאל Geburah-El, the male god), whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel (דניאל), I am now come forth to give thee skill and (Binah) understanding.” - Daniel 9: 21, 22
Remember that Binah means understanding, and it is the Sephirah above Geburah גבורה, thus only Geburah-El גבורה-אל (Gabriel גבריאל) can come down and give you understanding, if you take advantage of the fire in Malkuth. Din דין, Daniel דניאל means God’s justice, a name related to Geburah גבורה.
Behold Prometheus behind Zeus stealing the lightning fire from this Higher Divinity in order to give it to us.
Regarding Gabriel גבריאל or that male fire that comes down to Malkuth from Geburah, which is the fire of Prometheus-Lucifer, Aeschylus wrote:
Behold, here I am, pained and crucified, by will of a God, though I myself am a God (a divine principle or archetype); My love for mortal men the only offense that bows me to this yoke" - Aeschylus
INRI: Ignis Natura Renovatur Integra; the fire renews all Nature incessantly, You know this…
Let Lucifer the Maha Asura be excluded from Sex-Yoga and observe then what happens… Let failure be contemplated” - Samael Aun Weor.
So INRI is Prometheus-Lucifer. Let us study the following quotation:
"The ultra-modern Prometheus-Lucifer frightfully devolving in time, has now become Epimetheus: "The one who sees only after the event"; because the glorious universal philanthropy of the former has since many centuries ago degenerated into selfishness and self-adoration. The human soul will re-become the free Titan of old, but not before the recycling devolution", remember that, "has re-established the broken harmony between the two natures -- the terrestrial (which is us) and the divine (which is our God); after which the human soul becomes impermeable to the lower titanic forces, invulnerable in his personality, and immortal in his individuality, which cannot happen before every animal element [the ego] is eliminated from his nature. When human understands that "Deus non fecit mortem nec laetatus in perdition vivorum" (Wisdom 1: 13) [God made not death, neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living], but that man has created it himself (when the man ate the forbidden fruit, he ate also death; so we, ourselves, created death), he will re-become the Prometheus before his Fall."
“Prometheus, the Greek God, is the Maha-Asura, the Hindustani Lucifer, who rebelled against Brahma, the Lord, for which Shiva the Third Logos, hurled him with indignation down into the inferior Patala.
Prometheus-Lucifer is a mysterious fire detached from the Solar Logos and wisely fixed in the center of the earth by the force of gravity and the weight of the atmosphere. It is written with golden words in the book of life:
“The superlative ingredient of the Anima Mundi is the luciferian phosphorus.” As a sequence or corollary it fits here to asseverate with much emphasis the following:
“The sterile work of (the Nibelungen) Mime in his forge the rotund failure of the creative powers comes when the fire is extinguished. The ardent crepitation of the elemental fire of the wise under the Alchemist’s crucible is an axiom of Hermetic Philosophy.” - Samael Aun Weor
So indeed, if we liberate our own Prometheus, in other words, if we make of our own Satan a bright creature inside of us, by eliminating every single animal element from our ego in us, then Prometheus will transform us into another divine creature, knowing good and evil; because the knowledge of good and evil is precisely trapped in the ego that we have. Then that Prometheus, as Hercules, will liberate him, and Prometheus will give him a lot of gifts, because Prometheus-Lucifer is the shadow of God, and God absorbs him. This is why Gabriel גבריאל said: “I am now come forth to give thee skill and (Binah) understanding.” because with this understanding is how the Bodhisattva develops objective reasoning.
In this Universe the only reason to exist is to develop objective reasoning, illuminated intellect, but the only one that can give us this boon is Prometheus-Lucifer, if we take advantage of him, because in our self, in us, he is that fire that we feel in the blood, when we are sexually excited. However if all we are going to do is live in degeneration, then we only blacken him further, and he becomes more horrible and horrible. Indeed, that devil with horns that is horrible, that everybody is afraid of, is alive within each one of us. That devil is precisely Satan, who takes that horrible shape because that devil is mingled with all our lustful elements, angry elements, envy, pride, vanity, etc. That is why it is stated that if we can see how that archetype, called Lucifer, is in us, if we can see it in the mirror, and say: "Lucifer, show me how you are within me" we will collapse.
“Nevertheless, for God there is neither space nor time. But until the human being awakens from his dream of separatism, within which only the impulse of his passion moves to the degree that these are governing the world, he lives dead in regard to God, to himself, and to fellowmen. He polishes his personality throughout his reincarnations; thus, his body and face become beautiful or ugly according to his deeds (read The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde).” - Samael Aun Weor
“All art is at once surface and symbol. Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril. Those who read the symbol do so at their peril. It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.” - Oscar Wilde.
Behold the meaning of the Picture of Dorian Grey. Dorian is taking advantage of his own Lucifer but in the wrong way.
“The Florentine Dante illustrious disciple of Virgil, the eminent crowned bard from Mantua, finds in the right moment Dis Prometheus-Lucifer in the Ninth Sphere. This is obviously in the center of the earth in the profound well of the universe the place “where the souls were all covered underneath transparent as through glass Pellucid the frail stem”
The Maha-Asura fatally enchained to the severe rock of sex cruelly passes through unutterable bitterness. The wild flames of lust frightfully torture him. The insatiable useless vulture of reasoning gnaws at his entrails.” Samael Aun Weor
Nevertheless, we are here, and physically, we look different, right? Because vanity of vanities say the preacher all of us have vanity, conceit, narcissism, self-love, self-admiration, self-absorption, self-regard, egotism; pride, arrogance, boastfulness, cockiness, swagger, rodomontade; vainglory; we shave, we go to the hairdresser, and we like to wear the best dress, to look nice, perfumed, but inside we have a monster! And we have no courage to see it. If we see it, we would fall dead on the spot, because we can’t even imagine how monstrous, how horrible that devil is that inside of us. Meanwhile, we think that we are beautiful. Miss America, Mister Universe, Mister Olympia, and all that big-headedness... thus, everybody feels very beautiful with make- up, etc, but what about if somebody says: "Now, we will show you the big ego of this Mister Universe!” And will show it there with special lenses devices to the public. The public then will scream terrorized and run away. The same with Miss Olympia or Miss America, or Miss Universe. Do you see them, when they appear in TV, as Miss America or Miss Universe, yes, they are beautiful women, really well shaped, physically speaking, but inside, if you can see inside… oh my goodness! You wouldn't like to see that, believe me. So the fire stolen by Prometheus Lucifer is within El Shaddai אל שדי in Yesod, sex, and within all of the Sheddim שדים, demons of Klipoth.
In other words, the sexual fire of Yesod, sex, is stairs up to Heaven, and also stairs down to Hell; thus, do what you will, this is the only law, but remember that you have to answer for all your deeds.
Questions and answers
Audience: What is the meaning of “neither shall you touch it, lest you die?”
Instructor: The woman said, “God has said, neither shall you touch it.” Well, to eat of it in the Itocklanos manner means to reach the orgasm, and "to touch it" refers to the different sexual vices, which are very common in this day and age. Men and women touch themselves when they are in solitude, in order to gratify their lust. The only thing that can touch the wife’s female sexual organ, the yoni, is the male sexual organ of her spouse. Yes, the female yoni can only be sexually touched by the virile member of the man in the sexual act. That is why Eve was taken out from Adam, in order to take advantage of the serpentine sexual fire of Lucifer. But obviously, this humanity eats the fruit and touches the Tree of Good and Evil in different Itocklanos bestial manners; in this day and age this is very common. They are enjoying the boon of Prometheus-Lucifer in the Itocklanos bestial manner, and this is why each one of us has his own Prometheus-Lucifer crucified to the stone. Thus the sexual fire is a damnation for us, unfortunately. It was a beautiful gift, but now it is a damnation, and it is what is taking down this humanity into the abyss.
Audience: Is it possible to recuperate or gain again the life span of the middle ages, one hundred and sixty years old?
Instructor: Yes, it is possible and beyond. That is why Master Samael Aun Weor gave us the secret rites of rejuvenation, in which he teaches the way in which we can pray to Binah, the Holy Spirit through the intersection of our own particular Divine Mother, which is the feminine aspect that gives birth to this physicality that we have. By performing these rites, these exercises and transmutation, little by little we can recuperate years. There are monks in certain monasteries in Asia that perform these rites of rejuvenation every day, not only one time, but many times, and who are three or four hundred years old, yet they look like thirty or forty years old. They use these types of exercise as prayer, and for the annihilation of the ego. However, this longevity is not only acquired by performing the rites; it is also necessary to eliminate the ego, to sacrifice ourselves for humanity, to give to the needy, because karma is also related to it, remember that. Karma is, unfortunately, related or inherited by that ego inside of us which altered the vitality of our physical body. It is because of this karma that we develop illnesses, sicknesses, etc and die. So, yes, there is a way to lengthen our lifespan, and fortunately we have a book if you want it, and if you already have it, practice it.
Audience: Does the ten thousand people killed by David referred to ten thousand psychological aggregates?
Instructor: Let us understand that the statement in 1Samuel 18: 7: “Saul (sheol שאול, “hell”) has slain his thousands (Aleph אלף), and David his ten thousands.” is symbolic. In Kabbalah, Aleph אלף means thousand, thus, ten thousand is ten times Aleph; the letter Aleph represents the breath of God, Kether. When we state that there are ten thousand egos, this doesn't mean literally that we have ten thousand egos, that would be absurd. Who will go inside of the consciousness and count them... one, two, three, until reaching ten thousand? No, that is a Kabbalistic symbol, because one thousand was killed by Sheol שאול Hell, and David killed (by means of the Foolasnitamnian principle) his ten thousand, this is speaking Kabbalistically. The number ten symbolizes the Tree of Life or spinal medulla, meaning that if we reach Kether (from Malkuth to Kether), and clean the entire Tree of Life inside of us, then we reach ten thousand, Kabbalistically speaking. Don't fall into the mistake of thinking: "Oh, I annihilated four today, so I have nine thousand nine hundred and ninety six more.” No, this is Kabbalah, this is symbolism. Everything that Master Samael taught is Kabbalah. So yes, Rababuth Alephim is ten thousands, Kabbalistically speaking. The Tree of Life: ten Sephiroth in the world of formation (Yetzirah), which is the second mountain. Another question?
Audience: How to combat temptation during the fiery act?
Instructor: How do we conquer temptation during the fiery act? This is a good question that will be answered every time that we perform the sexual act. About this, we need to give a long explanation.
We have to pray during the sexual act, because remember that Iod-Havah יהוה is the Holy Spirit, Binah. Iod י is the white dove, and Havah הוה is the Divine Mother Shekhinah inside the physicality of us. Beneath Binah is Gabriel, גבריאל who in Greek mythology is “Eros” or the Heroic God Geburah-El גבורה-אל, our individual Lucifer, that as fire carries the light of Binah down through the left pillar of the tree of life into Malkuth our physicality.
During the sexual act we have to pray to the Divine Mother, the Shekhinah, because she is Binah in our physicality. Remember that the Holy Spirit (Binah) in the superior part of our physicality is related with the fluidic waters of our brain or central nervous system; while the Divine Mother Shekhinah relates to the sexual fluidic waters of our sexual organs. These are, respectively, the male-female sexual polarities in our physicality. So when we are in the sexual act, in Malkuth, we have to pray to her so that she may intercede on our behalf before Binah, which is above the serpentine fires of Geburah. Understand, in Daath, Binah is the Father-Mother of Geburah, the fire, of our own individual Kristus-Lucifer that descends from Chokmah.
To comprehend this is very important, because now, regarding the Theomertmalogos or Sephirah Binah, it is coming into my mind, what the book of Deuteronomy states:
See ye, now, that (Ani Ani אני אני) I – I is He (the Theomertmalogos), And Ain-Elohim ואין אלהים (Aelohim) is with Me: I put to death, and I keep alive; I have smitten, and I heal; And there is none that can deliver out of my hand.” - Deuteronomy 32: 39
The phrase “And Ain-Elohim ואין אלהים (Aelohim) is with Me” relates to the Logos Samael-Geburah in the world of Briah (Creation), and to the Seraphim שרפים or Serpents of fire, which are Geburah in the world of Yetzirah (formation).
This is why the Zohar states that Samael has the knowledge of the Seraphim שרפים, the Serpents of fire. They (the Seraphim שרפים, as fire) are all (contained in) Samael, who (as a Logos) has many different (fiery) aspects, but they (the Seraphim שרפים of Yetzirah) have not the same (rank of Samael in Briah), who is (in Geburah) on the side of the Serpent (the Seraphim שרפים, which) is the most cursed of them all (since there are many types of serpentine fires).” - Zohar.
The former statement from the Zohar is explained in the following quotation from Bmdabar במדבר (Numbers):
“And the people spoke against Elohim אלהים, and against Moses, Wherefore have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.
And Iod-Havah-Binah יהוה sent (from Geburah the Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים) fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people (in the Itocklanos manner); and much people of Israel died.
Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for (by means of the Itocklanos bestial orgasm) we have spoken against Iod-Havah-Binah יהוה, and against thee; pray (by means of the Foolasnitamnian principle) unto Iod-Havah-Binah יהוה, that he take away the (fornicator) serpents from us. And Moses (by means of the Foolasnitamnian principle) prayed for the people.
And Iod-Havah-Binah יהוה said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent (a Seraph שרף), and set it upon a pole (as the kundalini in the spinal medulla): and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten (in the Itocklanos manner), when he looketh upon it, shall live.
And Moses (by means of the Foolasnitamnian principle) made a serpent of brass (a Nahash Nahashoth נחש נחשת), and put it upon a pole (as the kundalini in the spinal medulla), and it came to pass, that if a (tempting) serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass (the Shekhinah), he lived.” - Numbers 21: 5-9
So, the Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים (fiery serpents from Geburah) sent by Iod-Havah-Binah יהוה, descend into Malkuth, our physicality, as Luciferean snakes, carrying the light. Nonetheless, because of the Itocklanos principle, meaning, because of the sexual bestial orgasm, they, the Luciferean snakes turn into Satan within our own physicality. This is why the Zohar states:
“We have learned that (the Logos) Samael (as king of fire), descended from heaven riding on these Serpents (the Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים, “fiery serpents”) at that time. All the creatures saw his image and fled from him. The image of the (Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים - fiery) Serpents (in the fornicator humanoids) is Satan. Thus, Satan approached the woman (sexual organ) with words, and brought death (from Klipoth) upon the world. So (the Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים “fiery serpents” of) Samael (the Logos) cleverly brought curses upon the (fornicator humanoids of the) world, and (through the Itocklanos principle) brought damage to the first tree (of knowledge), which the Holy One, (Binah) blessed be He, created in the world. This sin (of fornication) rested on (the Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים, “fiery serpents” from) Samael (the Logos of Geburah).”
“As a result, (as in Numbers 21: 5-9) the (Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים, “fiery) Serpents” brought death upon the whole world. This is the secret of the verse: "The end of all flesh is come before me" (Genesis 6:13).” - Zohar
If you don't know how to read the Zohar alchemically and kabbalistically, you will ignorantly think: "oh, yeah, Samael is a demon or Samael is Satan, and he is going to control the whole world." No, Samael is neither a Demon nor Satan! And please, if you have the Zohar, do not read it in a fanatical manner, as when you are reading the sport ilustrated magazine. It is written:
"And he slew an Egyptian, a goodly man: and the Egyptian had a spear in his hand." (Samuel 2, 23:21). This (rod) refers to (the serpent or) the rod of Elohim (Gibor) that was delivered onto (Moses) his hand.”
“Rabbi Eleazar said: I see that sometimes this rod is called 'the rod of Elohim' and sometimes it is called 'the rod of Moses'. Rabbi Shimon said: In the book of Rabbi Hamnuna Saba (the elder), he says that it is all one, whether it says 'the rod of (יהוה) Elohim' the Holy One, blessed be He', or 'the rod of Moses'. The purpose of this rod is to relight (the fire) the aspect of (Elohim in) Geburah. Therefore, "Stretch out your hand," (means) the left hand, which is at the side of Geburah (Elohim Gibor).” - Zohar
Samael in the world of Briah is the archangel related to Geburah. And, since Geburah has Geburah-El, Gabriel, is the fire of Elohim Gibor in it, obviously, in the zodiacal house of Scorpio, Samael controls the sexual fire as Gabriel in Yesod. This is why Samael knows very well the teachings that we are teaching here, because he is the fiery Logos or Christ of Geburah. So, those fornicator kabbalists that state that Samael is Satan, let them know that, yes, he is Satan, yes, Samael is satan, but within each one of them, because of their ego. Do you understand this?
Samael, as the fire of God, Geburah-El (Gabriel) descended into us and became Satan. Now we have to whiten it, and to transform that fire into our own particular Samael. This is how we understand Zohar. If we don't understand what the fire is, we will fall into the mistake of many intellectual Kabbalists that mistakenly think that the Logos Samael is Satan himself. Samael is the Logos that controls Geburah in the world of Briah (creation). Thus, in the beginning the Logos Samael placed its own archetype in each one of us, which is also called Samael, our own, particular individual Samael. But in Biblical Alchemy he is called Geburah-El or Gabriel. This is why in the invocation of Solomon we say, when addressing our Monad to the right pillar: "Oh Gedulahel!" And to the left pillar we say: "Oh Geburahel!" And to the pillar of the center we say: "Oh Tiphereth!". Obviously, Geburah-El is the God of Geburah, and the God of Geburah in the world of creation is Samael. So Samael, the archetype, became Satan in all of us, because of fornication.
Moreover, do not mistake the archetype Samael in each one of us with Samael Aun Weor, because Samael Aun Weor, the Dhiani-Bodhidattva of the Logos Samael, disintegrated all his egos. Therefore, his own particular individual Satan became Lucifer again; it is an enlightened bodhisattva. But Samael as archetype in each one of us is Satan, because we blackened it, when we fell into animal generation according to the Itoklanoz principle.
This is why Adrameleck—who in Klipoth represents the opposite pole of Geburah, the negative pole of the ray of Mars—is called the Black Samael. So, understand Samael, as Logos, gave to angels and demons in Malkuth, the power of fire.
When I was in Mexico, I remember talking with the Master Samael Aun Weor, and I asked him: "Master, what do we do if we do not have sexual strength, erection in the moment when we are going to perform the sexual act?" "Well, he says, concentrate on me, and then you will have it." Of course, I understood immediately, he was saying, concentrate in your own particular archetype Samael, so his fire will rush to my blood and give me sexual strength, because he is the one that controls all the archetypes, not only in each one of us, but all those archetypes in the plant kingdom, animal kingdom, mineral kingdom, because he is a Logos. This is how we have to understand, when we read that the Zohar always states that the Nahashim Seraphim נחשים שרפים “fiery serpents” of Samael of being the ones that sent this humanity to hell.
And if we understand that Samael (Prometheus-Lucifer, Christus-Lucifer) is that part of us that can send us to higher levels, then we understand that this is indeed right. But when you don't know Alchemy, you misinterpret many things. These misinterpretations are very common among intellectual kabbalists, who when addressing Samael, immediately say: "oh, the Zohar states that Samael is evil." Yes, we study the Zohar many times and we understand that evil is in the left and good is in the right of the Tree of Life, because Geburah is in the left pillar within you, and not outside of you. But the Logos Samael is beyond good and evil, because the Logos is the Logos; he sends his fire, the gift, his boon to each one of us. We receive that boon inside. If we use it in the wrong way, don't blame Samael; blame yourself. We all have freewill, we are not marionettes. We can use that fire in the good way or in the bad way. This humanity chooses the bad way… well, we get what we deserve! What can we do? But if we want to do it in the right way, well, this is why we are teaching here his doctrine!
Audience: You said that during the sexual act we have to pray to our Divine Mother, because she is the female part of the Holy Spirit, Binah, related with the waters of our sexual organs, whether we are male or female. So when we are in the sexual act, why do not we pray to Hillel Ben Shahar instead?
Instructor: Well, to pray to Hillel Ben Shahar as Christ in Chokmah, the upper aspect of your own Monad is good; since, Chesed our Monad, works upon the face of the waters of Binah, which is the Holy Spirit. However, right now Hillel Ben Shahar is a shadow within us, better said, he turned into a shadow, into Satan within us, because of our lust. And that lust is within that shadow that has trapped the light too. If we invoke Hillel Ben Shahar, at our level, then we are also touching Satan: "help me!" No, no, no. Ask for help from your Divine Mother, because Satan as ego has to be killed, just as Master Jesus represented in the gospel of Luke, because it relates to the same myth. Jesus was crucified on the cross, because the cross symbolizes the phallus and the Yoni in union: that is the cross. And that is precisely the way, in which Prometheus works. That is why he is crucified there on the rock; the rock is sex. It is the same myth, the same meaning. But then you have to ask for the liberation of your own particular Lucifer, who is chained to the rock, and he has a lot of defects, vices and errors. Thus, if you ask help from your own Satan, he will then answer with lust, because he is mingled with lust. But if you pray to your Divine Mother, which in this case is Athena, then Athena will pray to the Holy Spirit, and then you will receive willpower in order to control that temptation in the very sexual act, and then you will transmute, but if you forget your divinity, then Lucifer will play with you, because this is what Lucifer does.
Listen very carefully: Lucifer in us is trapped in the ego, and he knows that the only way to be liberated form that vulture that is always eating his liver—remember that the liver is ruled by Geburah, by Mars—is by annihilating the ego, and then he says: "in order to annihilate the ego, the Divine Mother, the superior part of my Being, can do it. How do I help myself? By tempting the Human Soul". He comes and tempts the Human Soul with lust, with anger, etc. in order for the Human Soul to perceive the ego and meditate, comprehend, and ask for its annihilation – thus, when he is in us as Satan, temptation is his duty, he has to tempt us, because if he doesn't tempt us, how are we going to discover our ego and to develop virtues? Do you understand this Luciferic drama?
If we fall into temptation, we enslave him more, but he knows that. So most of this humanity will take his own Satan to hell, because there are two ways to liberate Prometheus: through this Gnostic way or through nature. Nature will destroy the ego in hell, then Prometheus will be free again and will go up to the Logos. And that is why humanity should understand what temptation is. That is why it is said: "temptation is fire, and the triumph over temptation is light". But in order to triumph completely over temptation, we have to incarnate Christ, the superior aspect and to say: "Help me! because your brother is tempting me.”
Audience: What would you say about certain ways to the Tree of Life? To get beyond this essence, called by so many titles, not only El, Jahweh, who somehow seems to always aim at us, seeking out for external assistance. What would be one way to just get beyond that and say: "I need you for all that is".
Instructor: To say to your own superior aspect "I don't need you, you need me for all that is?
Audience: No! I am referring to that essence called “EL”.
Instructor: Well, El is God in Hebrew, and also in Arabic Allah. Allah is Ellah, in other words, God-Goddess in English. Now, Yahweh or Jahve is a demon, it is not Jehovah. The black magicians in this humanity have mingled Yahweh or Jahve with Jehovah, yet, they are not the same. Yahweh or Jahve is a fallen angel, he is one of those like Moloch, etc. that are there, tricking humanity, because they are fallen angels. Their way is to trick humanity. How to get rid of them? It is by listening to you inner “El,” your Inner Being, your Inner God. Because that is precisely the problem of this humanity: they always follow somebody else, and don't know who this somebody else is. Unless the writings of this somebody else is a self-realized master like Jesus, or the writings of Mohammad, or Krishna, or any of the great masters, you will be lead astray. If you follow the Koran and you follow the Bible, if you study them from the alchemical, kabbalistic point of view, you will be guided internally. And if you awaken to your Inner God, your Inner God will guide you internally, but you have to find the tools in order to do it. Once you awake, then you are guided individually.
Audience: Were not all of these so called characters, Jesus and Mohamed, etc, influenced by the same fourth dimensional essence, energy with pretty much the same messages? And it all seems to involve hierarchy and a dual living?
Instructor: Yes, of course. There is a hierarchy involved, we have to obey the hierarchy. What you imply in this, how do we do it without obeying any hierarchy, just by ourselves without the help of anybody?
Audience: Yeah, what if you just simply renounce all of them, because anarchy it seems to be the only thing that make sense?
Instructor: Well, anarchy is only for when you descend, or better said, fall. The way that you are describing is when you do not respect any hierarchy, any rule, and you decide to go by yourself, by your own will; whatever is good and evil, you don't care, you do it; that is the way of devolution. And when you continue doing that, nature will help to destroy your defects, your egos, but in hell, by being there approximately thousand years, more or less, could be more.
This is the path this humanity is choosing. They are moved by their own evil will. This is what everybody is doing. But if we choose this path, and then we have to tune our self with our Inner Being, and our Inner being will tune himself with the hierarchy, because in Universe, there is always a hierarchy, there is always an organization, a government that we have to follow. It is not random, or by change, like people think in this day and age, that this universe was created by big bang, and everybody is there, rotating by coincidence or by accident. Such a universe doesn't exists. Everything is order, mathematically speaking, and if we investigate universe mathematically speaking, and even the psyche mathematically speaking, we discover that there is an order.
Audience: What order is that?
Instructor: The order of the psyche. That order is inside of us. All the beings that acquire that self-realization are ruling others, like when you go into the school. You want to become a doctor, well you have to follow the rules of the university; if you follow, you become a doctor. But you say: "no, I will be a doctor according to my own whim". Well, then you have to do something else if you achieve it, but there are rules in society. The same thing that happens in the universe; there are rules, and rulers. When you enter into this path, you discover that the angels that religions talk about exist, and they exist inside of us and outside. Then, if you follow their direction, if you obey the rules, then they guide you into the hierarchy. But if you don't want to obey this order, this hierarchy, then you become a demon. This is precisely the choice that we have: to become a demon or to become an angel. If you act on your own whim, you become a demon. If you follow the rules of “El”, you become an angel.
Audience: What about not having a master.
Instructor: There is always a master inside. There is always a master inside. And that is why great Yogis, hermits, went always to meditate in order to be in touch, in contact with that master. Once you find it, wonderful, because then he guides you internally. But meanwhile, if you don't find your Inner Master, your ego, your mind, your defects and vices will guide you in a wrong way, which is precisely what is happening in this day and age. Another question?
Audience: Can you clarify please the difference between repression and sublimation?
Instructor: Well, when we talk about sublimation, we are talking about the sublimation of the sexual fire of Lucifer. To sublimate it into a higher levels in order to create superior elements that we need as a vessel, in order to eventually incarnate the superior part of that element that is fire. Because God is fire, as it was when Moses found a burning bush and that Angel, which is a superior aspect of him, talked to him. So, God is fire.
“For Jehovah Elohim (כי יהוה אלהים) is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.” - Deuteronomy 4: 24
Now, the inferior part of that fire is Lucifer, which is within our sexual fire, and we have to learn how to utilize it, in other words, we have to climb on it to heaven. But in order to do that you have to learn how to sublimate your animal sexual appetites, because your animal elements do not want to sublimate the sexual energy. Lust, for instance, wants to fornicate, wants to seek pleasure, right? That is lust, that is animal.
So, in order to sublimate, it doesn't mean that you have to repress your sexual energy. No! You have to meditate, you have to dedicate yourself to the technique, the science of meditation in order to comprehend in every level of your mind every particle of your lust, and to annihilate it. Sublimation is not repression, but comprehension. Once you comprehend certain element, animal element, that animal element transforms into the human element. In other words, we have to transform animal into human, and that is a long process of meditation and alchemy.
Repression is absurd, it is precisely what many religions in this day and age teach and do, like for instance the monks of the Catholic church: they enter their priesthood and they repress the sexual act and become celibate, and in the end they accomplish nothing. You find out the scandals of the monks in the Catholic church. Why? Because they don't know how to sublimate the sexual energy. They don't know how to transform lust into chastity, and this process of transformation is precisely what Alchemy is.
It is not by repressing the sexual act that we come to God, no. On the contrary, we, Gnostics, want to perform the sexual act in the perfect matrimony; it is what we want, but we want to take advantage of that fire in a very moment of the sexual act and sublimate it in order to take light from it. That is called sexual Alchemy or Tantrism. If we perform this, then the Kundalini awakens… your consciousness has other senses, psychological senses, and you see. Then you see that a lot of obstacles are placed before you for you to overcome. Indeed, in the very sexual act your egos of lust will push you to fornicate, and then you have to meditate and comprehend those impluses, those desire, and that is a long path. Remember: you do not have one ego of lust, you have, as we were talking Kabbalistically, ten thousand. It is like an anthill: you kill one ant, and more ants come, and you kill another ant, and more ants come from the anthill. And you say: "when is this going to finish? how many ants do I have?" Well, Kabbalistically you have ten thousand ants. So you have to be patient. That is why Jesus Christ said "In your patience, you will possess your souls".
Audience: So the part that is utilizing the sexual energy in order to raise the Kundalini and eliminate blockages at the spine. The danger though that I have experienced myself is that specially in a sensitive nervous system that is related to lust in the nadis. Could this be related to shortness as blockages of energies that contact the sexual energies that are rising to their systems. Is it possible for a sensitive constitution to do this or could be potentially dangerous to flood the system with sexual energy before it was not use for that energy that has been purified using that energy in that system of purification?
Instructor: No, it is not dangerous at all. I personally have many years practicing this, and of course I deliver myself to my Inner God, and he is the one that is guiding me internally. If you do it without any guidance, just for the satisfaction of lust, of course it could be danger there. But when you enter into this path, you have to deliver yourself to your Inner God, and to the masters in the internal planes that can guide you, because the student is never alone, even Lucifer appears. As I am teaching this Prometheus-Lucifer is here. I am not saying this just because I study it (of course I study it), but because I have had conflicts with my own Lucifer, face to face. And what he told me, because he as Prometheus, the one that sees the future, asked me: "What do you want to know? Your past or your future?" And I said: "my future". And he said: "Here it is". And what he told me many years ago, it is happening to me physically. And I am amazed. But he is the shadow of my Inner God, it is my own particular Prometheus-Lucifer, and I saw him very well. Although, many times he is just tempting me. He appears there in the shape of a woman, trying to seduce me, and when I recognize him, he just smiles. But, sometimes I don't overcome the temptation or other ordeals that he puts before me, and then say think to myself: "damned, he just get me at this moment.” And then I go and meditate, because this is one ego. When the other ego comes, then this is another ordeal. He is always tempting there, because he knows that it is a work that we have to do together. That is what in Esotericism we call "a deal with the devil" Once you enter into the sexual Alchemy, you are making a deal with a devil, because Prometheus-Lucifer knows that such is the problem of his slavery. But many are those who fall under his temptation. This path is precisely not for everybody, only for those that want to overcome themselves.
Audience: Did Samael Aun Weor locked many demons in Klipoth?
Instructor: Yes he did. All of these demons that we named, he took them, as an Avatar, and put them in cage, in order for us to do the work.
Audience: So, they cannot effect humanity anymore?
Instructor: Well, those Heads of the demons cannot affect humanity, but others are free. There are millions of demons that are like Moloch, like Belial, those are very strong, but there are others. All of us are demons, all of us are demons. And you know, in every country you find a lot of demons governing that country. Some demons want to renounce their way and become angels. Others love that way, and then we are in the middle dealing with those that want to leave their way of demons, and the others that enjoy being a demon. Unfortunately, both of them come to the Gnostic lectures. And those that enjoy being demons, they are just bothering us, and those that want to help, help us. How do we deal with them? Well, we studied a books of the Master, because he taught us how to deal with them. But we recognize them: "Oh, here comes another demon!" And he is enjoying being a demon, and he is doing evil things... OK, keep doing it. But sooner or later we will ask the master, and sometimes the master comes and take that demon and put it in the cage: "you had the opportunity, you listened to the lectures, you don't want to do it? OK, come". Like Jahve and all of those also down there. So, be careful.
Audience: So is the world in general is a lot better than it used to be before Samael did cage them?
Instructor: Only in the sense that we don't have the influence of those chief demons, those head Lucifers that are using the boon of Lucifer in a wrong way. Better if they are in cage, in jail. But better? No. The world is only better when we annihilate the ego. Even with those demons in jail, in many ways the world is continuing to get worse; before things like pornography had to be paid for, now you find it free everywhere: this is the black lodge. As we advance and teach this freely, they are also advancing and giving lust freely, and many other things. So the two forces are now in battle in the mental plane, and we are in the middle.
