Klipoth 4: The Sun
We have to use our imagination and understanding in order to comprehend that this law is related with the Sun, or with that in Kabbalistic terms we call the Ain Soph Aur, in other words, in esoteric terms, we can term the Solar Absolute.
The Ain Soph Aur, the Solar Absolute, is related with every single sun in the universe, all the suns that we find in space.
The Ain Soph Aur organises and balances all of the forces in all solar systems of the universe through the physical suns as it does it in our solar system through its sun Ors.
Our sun is among the seven main planets, which the ancients talk about in astrology. The ancients also knew about the other planets of our Solar System, but they only study the seven main ones when studying the Law of Seven. Indeed, we know that there are twelve planets rotating around the sun.
But when we talk about the heavens of the different religions of the Tree of Life we always talk about nine planets.
The Sun is the fourth among them: whether we talk of the seven planets, or of the nine planets we always find the sun as the fourth planet.
Esoteric Astrology studies the planets in relation with the distance from the sun to the earth, thus, we find that:
The moon is the first, because it is the nearest. Esoterically we say that the moon is the mother of the earth. The moon and earth are considered one. The moon is related to Monday (ï¿½moon-day').
Then we find the second planet, in relation to the distance from the sun to the earth, this is the planet Mercury. Therefore, the second day according to esoteric astrology is Wednesday (Woden's day).
The third planet is Venus - Friday (Freya's day).
So, between the sun and the earth there are no more planets, so, we have to come to the Sun as the number four (sun-day).
Then we go to the other side of the sun, and we find Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune etc.
When we talk about magical or esoteric works we have to follow the position of the planets, not the day according to our calendar, which are (actually deliberately) mistakenly recorded. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, etc. is the wrong order. This is why present horoscopes are worthless.
So when we talk of the fourth planet we always talk of the Sun.
Let us now study the Heaven (Superior Dimensions) and the Hell (Inferior Dimensions) of the Sun.
Dante speaks of the Nine Infernos related to the nine known planets.
The Law of the Reciprocal Nourishment of all the Species can be rephrased as the law of "to-swallow and to-be-swallowed."
Matter transforms into energy and energy transform into matter.
In the Astral Plane, if we project ourselves consciously in the Astral Body and travel to the Sun, the center of our solar system, we can descend into the Infradimension, into the infernos of our star that we call the Sun.
Every single cosmic unit, whether it is a sun or planet or comet, always has nine Supradimensions and nine Infradimensions, which are shown in the Tree of Life above and below Malkuth, which in this case is the physical aspect of that given cosmic unit.
So, clairvoyantly in the internal planes or dimensions, we will see that in the infernos of the sun there is not a single demon, not a single soul in penance or in punishment.
Another thing would be to descend into the Infradimensions of this planet Earth, where we will see a growing population of sinful souls, demons. Not only in the planet Earth but in the infernos of the different planets we will find demons - but we will never find them within any sun.
The hells are full of the demon-souls, full of defects, errors, vices, etc. This is the habitat of the degenerated souls, in every single planet's infernos.
The earth's infernos are over-populated, but in the other different planets it is not as bad as this planet. There are billions of souls in this planet's infernos. But in the sun's infernos there is not a single demon, there is not a single sinful soul. All of the creatures of the Sun, whether they are from the mineral, vegetable, animal, or human kingdom, are in a perfect state - there is no degeneration. The humanity of the sun is composed of Solar men.
Solar men male and female are creatures in the image of God, where the Being, the Monad who is always in Heaven is in them, that Angel is incarnated and is made flesh.
In the Gospel of John we read of the Word, the Christ-Word made flesh in the body of Jesus, and we saw his greatness, beauty and holiness; God in flesh. Not only Jesus incarnated Christ, or God, in his body, but many other Avatars have done this.
In the Sun all of the human beings are Solar men, they have incarnated Christ, all of them are vehicles of the Light "Ain Soph Aur."
When we talk of the sun we always wonder if the sun is a ball of fire: how is it possible that they are living there? This is because of the ignorance of the intellectual animals called "scientists" on this planet earth - saying that the sun is hydrogen in constant explosion, helium etc.
The Gnostics state that the sun is just as is this planet, the Earth, with four kingdoms. The sun has fire, water, air and earth - it has a mineral, plant, animal and human kingdom.
Of course, we have to comprehend that when we observe the Sun we mainly see the vibration of the kingdom of metals. Cosmically speaking, among minerals the group of metals is a separate group. A little bit beyond the kingdom of metals there exists a certain very rare type of matter that has closer contact with the Ain Soph Aur.
So, the kingdom of metals from that planet, the Sun, is composed of all the veins of metals on that planet. These veins are within the Infradimensions, within that planet, the veins of gold, the veins of all the metals. In terms of size, only one vein of that planet is bigger than the whole planet Earth. We have to imagine that the magnetism and electricity of the metals in the veins of the sun is tremendously powerful; that is why we see the Sun as a great ball of fire.
Samael Aun Weor stated:
At the threshold of a door in hell, Dante saw (written in black letters) the following terrible worlds:
THROUGH me you pass into the city of woe:The subterranean layers of the earth represent the Kingdom of Minerals (lithosphere). The Kingdom of Metals is the barisphere that envelops a heart of incredible density and frightful inertia.
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric moved:
To rear me was the task of power divine, Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.
Before me things created were none, save things Eternal, and eternal I endure.
All hope abandon, ye who enter here.
We must make a clear distinction between the Mineral Kingdom and the Kingdom of Metals.
Among Minerals, the group of Metals is a Cosmic separated group. A little bit beyond the Kingdom of Metals there exists a certain very rare type of matter that has closer contact with the Absolute.
We must comprehend profoundly that the Almighty Holy One abides behind the Kingdom of Metals. The Ray of Creation begins in the Absolute and ends in the Inferno; but, what is beyond the Inferno? It is clear that beyond the Inferno, behind the Kingdom of Metals, the Absolute is found. - Quoted from The Doomed Aryan Race
Using the Russian Kirlian camera - for auras - we can take beautiful photos of pieces of leaves, fingertips of people, around coins etc. We find there is always light, like fire, blue, yellow, orange colours around the material things that are photographed. Of course in Russia, this kind of energy was called the Bio-Plastic body, which is an energetic body around any matter.
Any matter has this magnetism, electricity.
This surrounding energy is that which we call the aura. This camera photographs the fourth dimension of the physical body, or of the physical matter.
The so-called aura, or ethereal body, is not new to the scientists, but they call it Bio-Plastic. Of course this is very old knowledge for the Initiates of Gnostic Kabbalah.
Anything radiates this aura - but what radiates a lot of this energy are metals. The colours of the planets that you see coming from the planets are the electricity, magnetism, coming from the kingdoms of that planet, but particularly from the mineral kingdom, from the metals of the veins that run in that planet. If we compare the veins of the planets with the human nervous system we will advance in our understanding.
The sexual relationship between metals is related with magnetism and electricity. It is known that metals are united, sexually-speaking, through magnetism and electricity.
If we descend to the center of the earth we will find that copper is the metal in relationship with many metals. The radiation of copper in other metals is related to the evolving and devolving forces of nature.
If we apply the positive force to copper we discover that the law of evolving forces of copper start to develop in relation to other metals.
If we apply the negative force to copper we discover that the law of devolving forces of copper start to develop in relation to other metals.
If we apply the neutral force to copper we discover the stabilizing forces among the metals.
Copper is in relation to the Three Forces, Positive, Negative and Neutral, within the veins of the earth. Copper stabilizes the evolving, devolving and neutralising forces in every single planet.
Indeed, what we see from the sun is the tremendous radiation of the metallic veins of gold, iron, copper, silver, and all those metals that exist within the veins of every single planet. All of the kingdoms of the sun are perfect. There is not a degenerate or devolving force. Everything is in activity, and the radiation is tremendous.
On this earth, we use copper for transmission of electricity, and many other metals, but copper is special.
So what we see inside the atmosphere of this planet Earth, when we look towards the sun, is the radiation of the mineral kingdom, plant, animal, and human kingdoms of the sun.
But if you go out of our atmosphere and look towards the sun, you will not see any fire, because those radiations of the four kingdoms of the sun, when they enter the earth, are transformed into colour, heat, sound and light. But you know that outside of the atmosphere there is darkness.
When you see the videos of astronauts floating in space you do not see light, but everything is in darkness. Why, if the sun is fire, is there darkness in space? Why do they need to use those special spacesuits to protect themselves from the cold of space? Obviously if they are in our atmosphere they need less clothing.
If we go to Mount Everest it is very cold, but to the hot coasts there is heat - but logic says that if you go up you will get warmer, however it is the contrary.
So those theories that study the sun from the point of view that it is fire are just ignorant theories made by learned ignoramuses. If you learn how to travel in the Astral Body you will see that the sun is not a ball of fire. It is just a planet like the earth.
The inhabitants of the sun accomplish that duty called the Being-Partkdolg-Duty. This is the perfect transformation of all the energies and forces of the universe; Perfect Balance.
So any creature that can transform all of those forces perfectly - not only physically, but also vital, emotional forces, mental, volitive, conscious, spiritual forces - is accomplishing the Being-Partkdolg-Duty.
Only the Being, the Monad, is capable of this perfect transformation, through its vehicle which is, in this case, the perfect human being made in the image of God. That is why the sun is the center of the solar system and equilibrates all of the forces of this solar system.
The radiation of the mineral, plant, animal, human kingdoms goes into every single planet, and when these forces go into the atmosphere they transform into light, color, heat, sound. Therefore every single planet sustains itself thanks to that radiation.
But within the atmosphere, within the crust of the earth, we find different elements, simple and compound - in the atmosphere we find hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and many other simple elements which are bombarded by the solar energy which forces them to multiply and to form that which we call light, and all the elements that we need to survive physically as human beings. This happens not only on earth, but on all the planets of our solar system.
The compounds also receive the solar energy. In which way does the solar energy travel? The solar energy travels in space in packages of energy which are called quanta. The quantum phenomenon is something that has been studied a lot but is still just beginning to be understood.
The quanta move at the speed of light in space, but when they penetrate matter they move at different speeds according to the atom or molecule to which they are submitted. Every single atom has the duty to transform that solar energy, to transform it and return it to the sun.
The magnetism and electricity of the quantum phenomena of the solar light in the different elements of nature is the law that sustains the different planets, because in the very center of the gravity of this planet you find the transformation of the forces.
So the earth receives and gives.
Mars receives and gives.
Every single unit in this solar system receives energy from the sun and returns this energy to the sun.
That is what we call the Cosmic Common Trogo-Auto-Ego-Cratic law.
This is the reciprocal nourishment of the planets.
In this law every single unit of each planet is involved. This is the law that balances the forces.
Every single mineral or atom of every metal accomplishes a certain mission, which is to transform certain vibrations which are coming from that King Star, which is the Sun, at the center of the solar system.
There are different vibrations and radiations - when a radiation is being sent out from the sun the scientists see that as an explosion of fire, or hydrogen. This energy is shown as tremendous flames that are sent into space. But of course they are not physical flames, they are flames of energy (Solar Wind) that are coming from certain parts of that star, and sent into space in order to sustain the planets.
But there are different kinds of radiations from the mineral kingdom, plant kingdom, etc. And the planets need certain species or elements in order to trap those forces, to transform those forces and return the forces.
That's why we find in the earth the different types of minerals, plants, animals etc. They are all necessary.
Of course the planets are different sizes, and are different distances from the sun, because among the planets also there is that law of reciprocal nourishment of forces - because in the final synthesis we have to state that the whole solar system is one whole organism, whose main organ is the sun. The sun is like the heart of this organism. Mars is like the liver. Saturn like the stomach, etc.
Astrologically we see the difference in the forces - of how each planet is related with certain forces necessary for the development and nourishment of this solar system/ organism.
Of course in each planet you find intelligences that control those forces - in this planet Earth, for instance. The Hindus call them Gods, those that control the forces entering the earth. In Christianity they are called Angels, Archangels, etc.
Those Beings are Intelligent Creatures that know how to control forces in every single unit in the solar system.
The main ones are in the Sun, because the Sun is the one that organises that law of economy, the law that balances the forces.
Every single Master, Angel, God or Being that is related with this law, is always symbolised by the scale. Many artists always paint Michael, the Genie of the Sun, with a sword and a scale. Michael is the Archangel that governs the sun and under his command there are legions of beings, creatures that control that law.
When we investigate the different catastrophes that are happening on earth in these times then you understand that we are breaking this law of balance. All the forces in nature in this time are in disequilibrium, due to the ignorance of all the intellectual animals that exist in this present humanity.
We always break this law. We ignore that every single element is accomplishing the transformation of the forces that we are talking of. The pollution that is occurring is the outcome of ignorance.
That compound element called water is in abundance in this planet. (On Venus there is only one ocean there, but it is three times deeper than any ocean of this earth.) On this planet we have many rivers, lakes etc. and to our disgrace they are polluted. So when the element water is polluted, which is the main one of this earth, it is obvious that the forces that are coming from the sun and the planets and other stars are causing terrible catastrophes, because they try to equilibrate themselves when they try to enter, but we are polluting the waters.
Another main element is petroleum, oil - this exists within the earth, not because of the greed of humans that extract this to make business, but of course there is a reason for it being there. Not only do we extract this element from the earth, but we squander this element on the surface.
We pollute the waters with tankers that spill oil - these elements should not be mixed, and so they are not accomplishing their main mission in the planet which is to attract certain forces, because they are mixed, polluted. Oil and water do not mix.
The petroleum that we use for many things - mainly in gasoline - pollutes the atmosphere, in smog, and so is already altering the different vibrations and radiations that are coming from space. In some parts of earth, the solar radiation is dangerous, and instead of being a blessing for the kingdoms, it is damnation.
Rockets that are sent to the moon, into space, create huge explosions when they take off, and are altering the atmosphere. As a result the outer layer of the atmosphere is dangerous.
Dante Alighieri, the Great Master, wrote The Divine Comedy for the human beings as a guide to perfection, however when academics study this book they only read it as a work of literature, but it is a guide - they ignore it is a book like the Bible.
When Dante Alighieri describes the Fourth Sphere of Hell that is related with the sun, he describes two types of being that are suffering - the squanderers and the monopolizers, which are related with avarice, greed, which are those main defects that we have in our psyche related to the crime of altering the economic balance, or the economic scale of nature and the cosmos.
If we think this life is a hell, we should remember that the physical world is only under 48 cosmic laws. When the soul descends into that circle the pain is much, much greater.
Every atom of that plane is controlled by 384 igneous particles of the solar light - 384 single wills.
In the Solar Absolute every atom is controlled by only one igneous particle, everything is in equilibrium, and is happiness, beauty, etc.
In hell everything is much more mechanical.
If you lose your chance of Self-realization in the 108 lives then you have to descend into the spheres of hell. When you arrive at the sphere of the sun then the atmosphere is very heavy.
Just as we don't see the air we live in, and the fish don't see the element water that they live in, in the same way, the souls that dwell in the fourth sphere, living in the mineral kingdom among those rocks and stones, a very metallic dimension, don't see that element.
You discover there those people that break the law of equilibrium, gathering money in order to feel strong, powerful, meanwhile other people are suffering because of lack of money, lack of work.
That ego that breaks that equilibrium is greed, avarice.
The opposite of the misers, the greedy, are the squanderers, the gamblers. They lose their fortune in one day. They also break the law.
It is necessary to be in the middle, in perfect equilibrium.
This also applies to those squandering the riches of the earth, the petroleum etc. Polluting the atmosphere, the seas, and extracting that element that is indispensable for the proper transforming of the earth.
Forests are cut for wood for purposes of profit, etc., and squandering this.
In each of us we have these defects, the monopolizer and the squanderer - but there are people that we would say are worse in this defect.
Economic inflation on earth is due to these, bringing famine and poverty to many places on earth.
We are causing many cosmic unbalances because of this disequilibrium, earthquakes, floods etc. because the forces are unbalanced.
Every natural cataclysm has a psychological cause. People think this is crazy as they ignore the doctrine.
We need food, shelter and clothing, that is all. If we allow our Being, our Spirit to control our life we will not break this law. But for that we have to work a lot.
It is written, "You shall not covet" - but we have greed inside of ourselves that is coveting.
In relation to our bodies, we have to maintain balance; otherwise we contribute to the disequilibrium of the universe, because every single physical body is a vehicle. Radical vegetarians are breaking this law, because the body needs meat. Those that eat excessive meat are also breaking the law.
Different diseases are due to lack of knowledge in relation to our food, in relation to our psychological behavior.
Our heart is the sun of our organism and within its left ventricle we have a Spiritual Atom, the Atom Nous. We have to build an altar within our heart and to put our Being there, to pray to our Being to ask for help in order to act according to the law.
Other humanities are worried about this humanity on earth because of the disequilibrium that is happening all over the planet - the mineral kingdom is polluted, the plant kingdom is polluted with cross-breeds, animals are neutered, adulterated, according to the stupidities of this root race. Moreover, we justify degeneration - homosexuality is justified in many countries, etc.
As a consequence of all this disequilibrium the radiations departing from this planet are dangerous. The other humanities know that sooner or later this humanity will enter in contact with the different planets and we will pollute other planets, taking this pollution and disequilibrium to other planets.
That's why they are worried - they want to help us, but we don't want to receive any help.
They won't allow this to happen, as it will spread all over this solar system, and maybe will spread to other solar systems. The organ of the planet earth is working very badly, jeopardising the whole organism of this solar system, which in turn is related to the cosmos, all governed by the law of balance.
We cause the disequilibrium because we do not allow our Monad to take over our consciousness, we want to control nature, this planet earth, and we are making a mess of it.
The atmosphere is polluted, the seas are polluted, we are killing each other, we are justifying degeneration - chaos. And of course greed.
We must learn how to equilibrate ourselves, or nature will equilibrate us down in the Fourth Circle of Hell.
Monopolisers and squanderers fight in this region of hell - millions of them, controlled by 384 laws. Imagine the problems of your life relation to money now, and this is only under 48 laws - the difficulties are massively increased under 384 laws.
In hell we see the results of that defect called greed. The opposite defect we can see in people who like to shop and shop for things that they don't really use.
Dante found in this sphere of hell priests, bishops, pastors who were suffering there. He found those fear mongers who in these times of the end go everywhere boycotting the spiritual help that the White Lodge is giving to the souls who long for liberation. These are those individuals who state that we must not divulge the Gnostic Doctrine in this physical world and that it must only divulge in the internal worlds. These are those individuals who in a selfish way are monopolizing the spiritual knowledge just for an exclusive elite, because according to their selfishness this is how this must be.
This fourth sphere is related with that negative aspect of our psyche that alters this sacred law of the sun - that negative aspect in our psyche that breaks the law of the cosmic balance. When this law is broken by any person, then this soul ends up in this sphere of hell, controlled by 384 laws.
45: Then answered one of the Master of the law, and said unto him (the Solar Logos), Master, thus saying thou reproaches us also.
46: And he said, Woe unto you also, ye Masters of the law! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. ..
52: Woe unto you, Master of the law! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge (Daath): ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. - Luke 11
4: And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
5: But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast (your soul, with his selfish doctrine) into (the fourth sphere of) hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. - Luke 12
15: And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisted not in the abundance of the (earthly) things which he possessed.
16: And he spoke a parable unto them, saying, the ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17: And he thought within himself, saying, what shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18: And he said, this will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19: And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20: But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21: So is he that layeth up (earthly) treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God (because breaks God's cosmic equilibrium).
22: And he said unto his disciples, therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23: The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24: Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
25: And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
26: If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27: Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28: If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29: And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30: For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31: But rather seek ye the kingdom of God (his cosmic equilibrium); and all these things shall be added unto you.
32: Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33: Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that failed not, where no thief approached, neither moth corrupted.
34: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
49: I am come to send (solar) fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already kindled (in the spinal column of each one of you).
50: But I have a (solar) baptism to be baptized with (within each one of you); and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
51: Suppose ye that I (as Solar Fire that rises in your spinal column) am come to give peace on earth (your physical body)? I tell you, Nay; but rather division (between light and darkness):
52: For from henceforth there (in Yesod) shall be five (because of Karma) in one house (physical body) divided, three (primary forces) against two (mechanical nature), and two (husband and wife) against (the) three (interior traitors).
53: The (divine internal) father shall be divided against the son (the human soul because of kamaduro and karmasaya), and the son (human soul) against the (internal) father (because of Karma); the (divine) mother against the daughter (of sin or Buddhata bottled up within the ego), and the daughter (of sin or Buddhata bottled up within the ego) against the (divine) mother; the mother in law (mechanical nature) against her daughter in law (or essence that wants to be liberated), and the daughter in law (or essence that wants to be liberated) against her mother in law (mechanical nature).
The instructors who teach the lectures and courses are volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Each has years of experience teaching and working with the practices and exercises that awaken the consciousness. Since the goal of dharma, yoga, or gnosis is to follow our inner Being, and to focus on divinity not terrestrial personalities, the lecturers remain anonymous, and do not broadcast their names, faces, or personal information. They do not have spiritual titles or names, do not accept followers, and live their lives anonymously like any other person in society.
