Israel's Entrance into Nukva (1)
According to Kabbalah, the Aramaic words זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin and Nukva נקבה are two of the unfoldments of the nature of God that join in a spiritual marital union called the Sabbath Day. The outcome of such a union becomes what Jesus in the Gospels called the second birth or the birth of the new body’s souls engraved with the nature of the holy spirit of God which are the vessels for the outpouring of God’s delight.
Nukva נקבה is Aramaic for “female,” and has many metaphorical meanings in Kabbalah. Nukva נקבה is also known as שכינה Shekinah, an Aramaic word that means “resting place,” the indwelling of divine presence. It is the feminine, receptive principle of the Sephirah Binah, the Holy Spirit.
Nukva also corresponds to the Sephirah Malkuth, the “kingdom,” which relates to the physical body and the physical world. Gnostic Kabbalah comprehends that the feminine principle of God is placed within the Nukva, Malkuth. The soul of any initiate becomes a Malachim (a king or queen) by absorbing the female principles of the kingdom, their physical body. These female principles are something that can only be given to the Malachim through the willing reception of the נשים במים יצירתי Nashim B’Mayim Yetzirati, female creative waters from their kingdom, Malkuth, physical body. Thus about Nukva Malkuth, it is said there is no king Malachim without Malkuth, a queen or kingdom.
Nukva is also referred to as Bath, the Hebrew word for “daughter”; the daughter of Chokmah.
In the physical body, Nukva represents the collective archetypical souls of initiates (Israelites) that descend from Tiphereth and remain bottled up in their ego, in Malkuth, Egypt. As it is written:
“And all the souls that were issue of the loins of Jacob (Israel) were seventy souls: for Joseph (the consciousness, the Buddhata) was in Egypt already.” - Exodus 1: 5
Everyone has Nukva within, whether we have a male or female body. Nukva is receptive, feminine, only in the metaphorical sense, and does not necessarily refer only to physical women in the literal sense.
So as the title of the lecture “Israel’s entrance into Nukva” suggests, we are associating the name Nukva with the “Promised Land,” which as you may remember we stated many times in previous lectures that the Promised Land is indeed the Garden of Eden located in the fourth dimension and beyond. We also mentioned the word Nukva in lecture “The Parsufim” and we associated it with women, yet in the topic of this lecture it is related with the mystery of Israel, which, as you know, we have been also talking about it in different lectures. In the Bible, the people of Israel are several times alchemically mentioned as the עם סגולה Chosen Om, chosen issue.
“For you (אתה Atha Aleph, Tav, Hei) are (עם קדוש Om Kadosh) holy issue to Iod-Havah יהוה your אלהים Elohim; on being has יהוה Iod-Havah your אלהים Elohim fixed, to be of Him for a (עם סגלה Om – virtuous issue), out of all the (עמים Omayim) murkiness which are on the face of the ground.” - Deuteronomy 7: 6
“And you shall say unto Pharaoh: thus said Iod-Havah, My son, My first-born is Israel.” - Exodus 4: 22
Thus, we need to clarify what the name Israel means in order for us to understand what Israel symbolizes, and why the Israelites are called the עם סגולה Chosen Om, chosen issue, as well as “My son, My first-born,” since Christ, personified in Jesus (Tiphereth), is also called the son of God.
To begin let us explain kabbalistically the name Israel; we have explained it in different lectures, and we are going to repeat. Israel ישראל is written with the following Hebrew letters: Iod, Shin, Reish, Aleph and Lamed.
Kabbalistically in relation with alchemy (Daath דעת), we see that the first letter י Iod of the name ישראל Israel corresponds to the first letter Iod of the holy name of God, יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei. As you know this sacred name is interpretable in many ways, yet we always emphasize that the letter י Iod is represented in the Sephirah Kether which means “crown” in Hebrew and represents the Father in Christianity. The letter י Iod when representing Kether is associated with the first triangle of the Tree of Life, namely Kether, Chokmah, Binah, the three sephiroth which represent the three primary forces which make one force, the holy three unity or trinity, which is represented in many ways in different religions. So the letter י Iod implies the first triangle, the Logoic triangle, in the world of Atziluth, the world of the archetypes. The archetypes are precisely the prototypes of those elements that need to descend into matter in order for the universe, any universe, any cosmos, to appear. The main cosmos that we are always talking about in all of our lectures is the microcosmos, which is the human being. So in the world of Atziluth this י Iod contains or symbolizes the archetypes that have the property of the fire. Remember that the letter י Iod is the first manifestation of the Ain Soph Aur, which is the third aspect of the Unknowable Divine, the Limitless Light or Ain Soph Aur, which is above Kether.
The descent of those archetypes from the fire (אש Esh) or from the light (אור Aur), are represented in the letter ש Shin which in Kabbalah is the symbol of fire. This is why the letter י Iod and the letter Shin together form the word יש Ish, that in Kabbalah and in Hebrew means ‘there is’ fire. יש Ish is telling us that the fire that we are talking about is coming from the Iod above and is always manifested through the three unities or Iods of the letter Shin, since the letter Shin has the form of a fork, a trident. Thus, the letter Iod plus the letter Shin are forming the word יש Ish, a tetra fiery flame, since in יש Ish ‘there are’ four flames, four Iods, as well as in the יהוה tetragrammaton.
So this letter Shin which symbolizes fire is always associated with the sephirah Daath which is the sephirah of mystery. Daath means Gnosis, knowledge. We have stated in our lectures that the upper Eden is Daath. So, this Daath together with the sephiroth of the first triangle form what we call in Aramaic “Arik Anpin אריך אנפין.” Arik Anpin אריך אנפין means “vast countenance,” “huge face.” Thus, this huge face corresponds to Kether, Chokmah and Binah, and in Daath, his throat, is where we find the creative manifestation of this אריך אנפין Arik Anpin or Adam Kadmon, which is the Logos. In Kabbalah this Elohim is called the first righteous one, who in Daath acts as Jehovah Elohim. Thus from אריך אנפין Arik Anpin in Daath emanates the second righteous one which is the זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin, the lesser countenance, about which we talk about in the lecture “The Parsufim.”
So we have here two righteous lights, the first light is אריך אנפין Arik Anpin, the vast countenance from Daath to Kether above, and the second light is זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin, the lesser countenance, from Chesed to the sephirah Yesod below. Thus, זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin, the lesser countenance, is formed by six Sephiroth, and Malkuth, the seventh, which is at the very bottom of Yesod, is what we call the Nukva, the bride, the female. The Nukva נקבה encloses the mystery of the lesser light below, which descends from the greater light above, which in turn emerges as an unfoldment of the abstract light from the Ain Soph Aur.
When addressing the mystery of the unmanifested light of the Ain Soph which is above the higher and lesser manifested countenances, Arik Anpin אריך אנפין said to Moses:
“No other Elohim shall you be on the countenance of me. (And of the Ain Soph) You shalt not make for you any graven image, or any similitude (of the Elohim) which are in the heavens above, and which are in the earth beneath, and which are in the waters under the earth: You shall not bow down yourself unto them, nor serve them: for I (Binah) יהוה your Elohim (your אריך אנפין Arik Anpin) am a zealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) upon the children (Initiates) unto the third (Hod) and fourth (Netzach) generation of them (your egos) that hate me, and shewing (Chesed) mercy unto thousands of them (the virtuous souls) that love me and keep my commandments.” - Deuteronomy 5: 7-10
The Ain Soph encloses the mystery of the abstract light; which is above Kether, the higher countenance. Yet, such an abstract light needs a vessel in order to manifest in the entire universe within any dimension. Such a vessel is named נקבה Nukva.
The Nukva is matter, Earth, female. She is what in Hinduism we call the Divine Mother प्रकृति Prakriti, yet she has other names. So, in mysticism, in Judaism, in Kabbalah, she is called Nukva. The names אריך אנפין Arik Anpin, זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin, Nukva נקבה, as well as שכינה Shekinah which means “glory,” are Aramaic words. When we read in the Bible “the Glory of God” we are reading “the Shekinah of God,” or the female aspect of Elohim; this is very hidden. This is why we explain it because in both religions, Judaism and Christianity, they don’t talk too much about the female aspect of Elohim because it is believed that Elohim is male. But indeed, Kabbalistically the name Elohim אלהים is grammatically showing us the androgynism or the male-female aspects of Elohim אלהים.
Indeed, the glory, the Shekinah of יהוה Iod-Havah is hidden within the four Iods of יש Ish, namely, the letter Iod and the letter Shin, which respectively symbolize the Ain Soph and Kether, Chokmah, Binah. The glory, the Shekinah, has five fiery aspects, hidden within the five letter Iods in the shape of the letters Aleph and Shin of the Hebrew word אש Esh, which means fire. The Glory of אש Esh, fire, is indeed related to the Ain Soph and the first triangle Kether, Chokmah, Binah, and Malkuth, these are the five Iods or five manifestations of the Nukva within the letters Aleph and Shin which in their descent from the Ain Soph through the three triangles of the tree of life, manifest as fire in Malkuth, into the different levels of matter.
Now the letter ר Resh of ישראל Israel, is the letter that represents ראש Rosh, the head. And the head as we always see it when placing a human body along the Tree of Life is related with the upper triangle. The letter Resh in itself shows us that the glory of the fire of יש Ish, the tetragrammaton, or the glory of the four Iods of יש Ish, which we are addressing here, form the crown of Resh or Ra, the head or upper triangle of the tree of life, which is the Ain Soph Aur.
Resh ר by itself is what the Egyptians call Ra, the God Ra, which is the symbol of the light and the fire which is above the Tree of Life, on top of the universe, because the world of Atziluth which is represented by the first triangle of the Tree of Life relates to the seventh or zero dimension; such fiery light is far beyond the understanding or apprehension of those who are here below in Malkuth, the third dimension.
So far we have described the first three letters of Israel, which spell “Isra.” Above Malkuth is Yesod, the fourth dimension and above Yesod, is Hod and Netzach in the fifth dimension and above them are Chesed, Geburah and Tiphereth in the sixth dimension and above them are Kether, Chokmah and Binah in the seventh dimension which emerged from the zero dimension, which is the absolute. So as we see Isra ישר forms the word "ישר Yasher” meaning, virtuous, direct, sincere, straight, ישר Yasher points up towards the fire above the head, that is, the light of the Ain Soph Aur, that we have to reach from Yesod, here in Malkuth. After Isra we find El, which in Hebrew means “God.” So kabbalistically and alchemically the word ישראל Israel means: the Glory of the fires of the God Ra or the Glory of the igneous particles of the God Ra (Yasher ישר "the upright, the straight," אל El, "God"). Such is kabbalistically and alchemically speaking the meaning of the name ישראל Israel.
Thus in the name ישראל Israel is represented all the archetypes of "אל El” because as we see here, the name ישראל Israel is related to the Crown, the Ain Soph Aur upon the Head or Upper Triangle of the Tree of Life, within which are all the archetypes that must manifest in "אל El” which is Chesed, our own particular individual God or Inner זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin.
Now, in Kabbalah the word "אל El” by itself, Aleph Lamed, means that א Aleph, the breath of life, as the Sephirah Chesed, incarnates for the first time in the heart. "אל El” is the individual Spirit or every single זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin, which is what in Greek we call the Monad. Monad means unity. "אל El” is translated as God in Hebrew. "אל El” is the Ruach Elohim, the Spirit of God that was hovering in the beginning upon the face of the waters. This beginning corresponds to Daath, because when we read that in the beginning of time the Spirit of God was moving upon the face of the waters, macrocosmically speaking, that refers to Daath because in Daath we find those heavens that are written in Genesis as שמים Schamayim. Notice that the word שמים Schamayim begins with the letter Shin, symbol of fire and the following letters מים of Schamayim שמים mean waters in Hebrew. So שמים Schamayim are waters related to Shin. And the letter Shin corresponds to Daath; so שמים Schamayim alchemically means the fire of the waters from above.
“And Elohim said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” - Genesis 1: 6
In the second day of Genesis, the superior waters were separated from the inferior waters to make room for Shin, in the firmament. The superior waters refer to שמים Schamayim in Daath and the inferior to מים Mayim in Yesod. The lower waters could also symbolize the oceans, the rivers, the lakes or our own sexual waters in our genitalia. So in the higher waters is where the Solar Spirit as Shin is moving in the beginning; “hovering upon the face of the waters” means that the letter Shin hovers upon the waters of heaven, the cerebrospinal fluid; the letter Shin as fire hovers upon Ida, Pingala and Sushumna in the central nervous system which is the throne of "אל El,” Chesed.
This is how we also see that indeed the י Iod of ישראל Israel corresponds also to the י Iod of יסוד Yesod, the sephirah that encloses the סוד Sod, “the secret” י Iod of יסוד Yesod, which is also the י Iod between the מים Mayim, the lower waters, our sexual fluids. This is why within this י Iod is where all of the archetypes of ישראל Israel are placed. Chesed is related to אברם Abram, the exalted father. This is the meaning of אברם Abram in Hebrew. Abram אברם the exalted father is related to Daath because it is in this Sephirah where we find father and mother, Abba אב and אם Ama perpetually united. Abba is Abram. Abba - Aleph-Beth means father in Hebrew. So Abram means exalted father which points above. The great prophet אברהם Abraham existed; he came to the earth in order to represent Chesed as Jesus came to represent Chokmah, the Lord, Christ. Every single prophet represents some living soul within our consciousness.
Let us talk about the archetypes or prototype elements, sephiroth that compound the Monad, and that we have to develop. It is written that Chesed, Abram is the beginning of the descent of the archetypes of Israel into Nukva, that is, the עם ישראל Om Israel, issue of Israel from Abraham into Nukva. As you know, the twelve tribes of Israel were issued into the Nukva Malkuth from Jacob (Tiphereth), Jacob (Tiphereth) was the issue of Isaac (Geburah), and Isaac (Geburah) was the issue of Abraham (Chesed). In אברהם Abraham-Chesed therefore begins the descent of the igneous particles of יש Ish from ר Ra, the head, into the Chest, Chesed, in other words, Ishra ישר into "אל El,” Chesed, which is precisely the beginning of ישר עם Yasher Om, the virtuous issue, the סגולה עם Segula Om, Chosen Issue from אברהם Abraham into the Nukva שרה Sarah, from יצחק Isaac into the Nukva רבקה Rebeka, and from יעקב Jacob into the Nukvas לאה Leah and רחל Rachel.
The whole story of Abraham in the bible hides all of this because it is through the initiatic way of Abraham or Chesed how this spiritual development is processed in any initiate. This is explained in the Hebrew way because the Hebrew language cryptically hides all of this through the mysteries of Kabbalah in the Hebrew bible.
On this planet, in this root race, all of the mysteries of Kabbalah and Alchemy were hidden in the Hebrew language due to the fact that in the Hebrew race many great masters were incarnated in order to deliver this doctrine in different times, in order for us on the Earth to receive it and this is why we are receiving it. Most of these mysteries that we explain here are written in Aramaic in the Zohar. The Zohar is the discussion between many masters of Kabbalah, Hebrew masters, Jewish masters. Abraham was a Jew, Moses was a Jew, Jesus was a Jew, Paul of Tarsus was a Jew, all the prophets in the Bible were Jews; yes, we are talking about masters or rabbis. Rabbi, this is how we say the word master in Hebrew and Aramaic. So, the Rabbi Simeon bar Yochai (Aramaic: רבן שמעון בר יוחאי, Rabban Shimon bar Yokhai, wrote the book of Zohar and based on that book is how the book of Genesis is understood. Moses the one who wrote Genesis spoke Hebrew and Aramaic which hide the wisdom that we are explaining here.
This is why Moses wrote in the book of Genesis, in the Bible, that Abram came from Ur, better said, באור כשדים BeAur כשדים Kshedim, that is to say, the Archetypical Genii of the world of Atziluth that emanates from the Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור, because Aleph-Vav-Resh אור Aur means light in Hebrew and corresponds to the Ain Soph Aur. So when we read that Abram came from אור Aur of the כשדים Kshedim, the light of the Spiritual Archetypical Genii of the world of Atziluth, it is clearly saying that Abram-Chesed came from the light of the Ain Soph Aur. This is true because Abram or the archetype Chesed, is an unfoldment, a development of אור Aur, the light of Arik Anpin by means of the sexual alchemical work of the fire in the Ninth Sphere, Yesod (sex), symbolized in the letters Iod and Shin of the name of his wife שרי Sarai in Daath and of the name שדי Shaddai in Yesod. As it is written:
“And when אברם Abram was ninety years old and nine (9+9 = 18 = 9), יהוה appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am אל שדי El-Shaddai (the אל El God of the שדי Sheddi) walk before me, and be thou perfect.” - Genesis 17: 1
And this is how here we study it the descent of that because we have to understand that each one of us has his own individual, particular Abram as each one of us has his own Chesed or his own Spirit or his own Ruach Elohim which in Sanskrit is called Atman which means “soul.” So Atman, Chesed or Abram, abides at the very depth of our consciousness. Each one of us has his own Chesed. Thus, through Abram, the archetype called Israel descends into Nukva, the matter. Albeit in order for this to occur, that is, in order for this to be accomplished, to be fulfilled within us, we have to know the mysteries of Daath. In other words, we have to be initiates because initiation is the beginning or the way in order for us to understand the path.
The whole transformation of אברם Abram into אברהם Abraham is made through an alchemical initiation, when our אב Abba (our Monad) enters Malkuth through the minor alchemical initiations and then the seven lower sephiroth through the superior or major alchemical initiations; that is the way for Israel to enter into Nukva.
“My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon (Tiphereth) thine heart, and tie them about thy neck (in Daath).” - Proverb 6: 20, 21
In alchemy the Nukva symbolizes the vessel, the female aspect, the mother that is called אם Ama. Sometimes we call it אים Aima because this second word contains the letter Iod. In Hebrew it is pronounced אם Ama but if we want to include the Iod, it is אים Aima. So without the Nukva, the Divine Mother the archetypes cannot descend. Without the Nukva the archetypes cannot develop.
Now, about the mystery of Nukva, in the book of Genesis it is stated that Abram married his half-sister, named Sarai, as it is written:
“And Abraham said... And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.” - Genesis 20: 12
"The name of Abram's wife was Sarai.... But Sarai was barren; she had no child. - Genesis 11: 30
Sarai שרי means “princess,” the daughter of a king. Sarai as Minerva is the unfoldment of the head of Zeus, the king, which in Aramaic is אריך אנפין Arik Anpin, namely, Kether Chokmah, Binah together in Daath.
שרי Sarai: "ישיש Isis", ר Ra, the Eye-Sees
“Say unto (חכמה Chokmah) wisdom you are my sister ("ישיש Isis"); and call (דעת Daath) knowledge to your (בינה Binah) understanding.” - Proverb 7: 4
Sarai שרי is written with the letters Shin, Resh and Iod, שרי. In the name שרי Sarai we see the letters Shin (symbol of fire) which represents the three primary forces, and the letters Resh and Iod which are related to Rosh, the head of אריך אנפין Arik Anpin. So in the name שרי Sarai, princess, we discover that "ישיש Isis," the Nukva as wisdom is an unfoldment of the Resh, the head, and the Shin, the trinity, or the three primary forces and the Iod from the Ain Soph. Sarai שרי is placed above the head because the letter Iod and Shin corresponds to ישיש Isis, the Ain Soph and the first triangle, the crown above Ra, the Resh, the head. This is why Abram’s sister is שרי Sarai.
Sarai שרי, the princess, as the Valkyrie, is the female aspect of Iod-Havah Elohim, an issue of Binah, because the letter Shin of שרי Sarai is placed always in Daath. So שרי Sarai as a female aspect, the Nukva, has the archetypes of Isra ישר within her womb. Observe that שרי Sarai and Isra (Yasher ישר) are spelled with the same letters. This is why it is written that שרי Sarai was sterile, meaning that still the archetypes were not developed in the ה Hei of יהוה.
So as in Hinduism, Brahma and his wife Saraswati are emanations of the Supreme Being named Brahman whose Nukva is known in Sanskrit as Prakriti. In their turn both are emanations or Parabrahman, the Absolute. Likewise, Abraham and his wife Sarah both are emanations of Iod-Havah Elohim, which in their turn are emanations of Aelohim the אור Aur, the light, of the Absolute.
Abraham and his wife Sarah are always represented in the Sephirah Daath as Abba Elohim with his consort Ama Elohim. The outcome of אריך אנפין Arik Anpin who is Abba and Ama Elohim in Daath is Chesed-Abram, the זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin. This is why Abraham is called the exalted father.
How Sarai Becomes Sarah
Now let us examine the words Abram and Sarai who as Abraham and Sarah become the vessel for the first initiation. Because in order to enter into the Nukva, into initiation, we have to know the mystery of the Tetragrammaton יהוה who does it through Abraham and his wife Sarah. Why? Because the Spirit, Abram, Chesed, our own particular individual El, God, inside of us, is the one who enters into the Nukva by following the commands of יהוה אלהים Jehovah Elohim. As it is written:
“And he (אלהים Elohim) said unto him, I am יהוה (Jah-Havah) who brought you out of Aur אור of כשדים Kashedim, to give you this (Nukva) land to inherit it.” - Genesis 15: 7
“And אברם Abram fell on his face: and אלהים Elohim talked with him, saying, as for me, behold, my covenant (sexual alchemy) is with you, and you shalt be (אב Abba) father of many nations. Neither shall your name any more be called אברם Abram, but thy name shall be אברהם Abraham; for (through the first ה Hei of my nameיהוה) I have made you (אב Abba) father of many nations.”
“As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name שרי Sarai but שרה Sarah shall her name be (because I changed the letter Iod of her name for the second ה Hei of my name יהוה).” - Genesis 17: 4, 5, 15
It is not our religious personality who enters into initiation. When we receive the knowledge of sexual alchemy and we start working on the path of initiation, Elohim through his Spirit (Chesed) is fecundating our sexual waters as it is written in Genesis:
“In the beginning (Brahman, the) Elohim created the (archetypes in the) heavens and (Nukva) the earth. And (Nukva) the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And (Chesed-Abram or Brahma) the Spirit of (Brahman, the) Elohim moved upon the face of the waters. And (Brahman, the) Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light.” - Genesis 1: 1-3
It does not say that Joseph or John Doe said let there be light, it is Elohim who said it because Elohim is the intelligence of the fire, who after being sexually lit manifests as a still small voice through יהוה; Thus Elohim through IAOH says: “Sssss... Let there be light.” We have to understand that Chesed is the Spirit of Elohim within us, who along with the still small voice does it inside of us. So, in other words, we need the cooperation of El and Jehovah Elohim. When we do the sexual alchemical work we have to understand that our physicality, our physical body, is the low part of the higher part of Chesed or Spirit. Malkuth, our physical body, is also the Nukva. Since Malkuth, the physical body, is receptive, in Kabbalah it is considered “feminine” because it is a vessel that receives the archetypes from above, in order for us to perform the work, the creation of Jah-Havah Elohim in us.
For the minor initiations, there is a mantra or pranayama that we can study in The Yellow Book in order to transmute the sexual energy; it is called the Egyptian pranayama. The mantras are Ton – Sah - Ham and Ton – Ra – Ham. The mantra Ton corresponds to the sexual potency and Ham corresponds to the heart. Between the mantras Ton and Ham we find the mantras Sah and Ra, which together form the word שרה Sarah, the name of the Nukva of Abraham.
In Hebrew שרה Sarah is written with three letters, Shin, Resh, and Hei. However, as we already explained, the princess שרי Sarai is born from the letter Iod, which along with the letter Shin forms the crown, Kether, upon the letter Resh, the head of אריך אנפין Arik Anpin, this is why her name is שרי Sarai.
Through the alchemical Egyptian Pranayama, the fire ש, Shin, from ר the head (Resh), descends through the Iod of שרי Sarai into the lower Iod of Yesod (sex). This is the same lower Iod at the bottom of the shape of the letters Hei of יהוה; thus, this is how the Iod of שרי Sarai changes into the Hei of שרה Sarah. The letters Shin ש and ר Resh of שרה Sarah relate to the fiery solar forces of RA in our head; when we breathe these solar forces descend through our central nervous system and fecundate the creative lunar forces of the Iod of the ה Hei, the Nukva in our genitalia.
So at the end of the names שרי Sarai and שרה Sarah we find the letters Iod-Hei of the name יהוה, the solar-lunar duality expressed by the Nukva above in the head and below in the genitalia.
The princess שרי Sarai that is alchemically metamorphosed into שרה Sarah, symbolizes the feminine aspect above and below of Elohim. This division of the feminine creative forces of Elohim is shown in the two letters Hei of his name יהוה, or as it is explained in Genesis:
“And Elohim created Adam in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male and female created he them.” - Genesis 1: 27
In the beginning Adam was created male-female, androgynous. In order to activate the feminine aspect of Adam, יהוה אלהים Iod-Havah Elohim separated Adam into male and female. Elohim took the Iod from Adam’s head and put it in Yesod (sex). And in the male the י Iod elongated and became the letter ו Vav, the phallus; and in the female the י Iod shrank and became the clitoris, that is, the lower י Iod in the shape of the letter ה Hei, which is at the end of חוה Chavah-Eve and שרה Sarah. Likewise, שרי Sarai emerges from the head of Adam Kadmon and when descending into Yesod she becomes שרה Sarah. So the division of sexes into male and female or the division of the two forces in the Iod of Yesod (sex) is controlled from the Iod and Hei of בינה Binah, the Holy Spirit, in the pineal gland. The sexual force that emerges from the brain above is a masculine active force that turns into a feminine receptive aspect in the genitalia below, yet both are always related to the sexual force of Binah. This is why we always state that from the Holy Spirit Binah emerges the Divine Mother in order for them to become our inner Abba and Ama. This is precisely the meaning of the duality of Binah in Daath.
The Divine Mother שרי Sarai and שרה Sarah are the two aspects of the Nukva that correspond to יה Jah, Atziluth and Assiah, which relate to Abram and Abraham, the exalted Father. As Brahma and his two wives Saraswati and Gayatri, likewise, Abraham, the exalted father, in order to bring the archetypes from Atziluth into Assiah needs the assistance of these two aspects שרי Sarai שרה Sarah, the feminine vessel, the Nukva. And this is why in the life of every prophet always appears the feminine aspect, the Nukva, as the highest and lower aspect of the Divine Mother.
Genesis stated that Abram descends from Ur and goes into Canaan and from it into Egypt. Because Jehovah Elohim (Shiva) which is the Sephirah Binah tells him:
“Get thee out of thy land, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto an earth that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing....” - Genesis 12: 1, 2
This is the descent of Chesed, Abram, the Spirit into matter which is Malkuth, which in the bible is called Mitzrahim מצרים, which is translated as Egypt.
In the Hebrew bible מצרים Mitzrahim is Egypt, which is a kabbalistic symbol. Mitzrahim מצרים is not what the people think, the country of Egypt there in Africa, in the Middle East. The word Mitzrahim מצרים is an alchemical mystery. Laypeople always read the bible literally and they become confused. Everything related to the science of alchemy which is what we are talking about here goes down into ancient Egypt, in other words, into the symbology of Egypt, because all of the archetypes that we are addressing here are as well represented in Egypt but in the language of the past which was not Hebrew. All the archetypes, all the gods and goddesses that we find in the walls of the temples of Egypt are a representation of Is-Ra -El; Ish יש, Ra ר, and El אל, came from Egypt. All of the fiery archetypes of יש Ish related to the God ר Ra, all of them came with "אל El,” Chesed, Abram, out from Egypt. This is why it is written:
“When ישראל Israel was a child, I loved him, and I called my son out of מצרים Mitzrahim Egypt.” - Hosea 11: 1
Abram came from Egypt, Moses came from Egypt, Jesus came from Egypt, because in alchemy Egypt encloses the mystery of the womb, which is Malkuth, מצרים Mitzrahim, the Nukva, which is what we are talking about here. In Malkuth, as we explained in earlier lectures, are placed all of the archetypes. All of the archetypes that we need to develop are placed in the Nukva, as we explained in the symbology of the Garden of Eden. As it is written:
“Behold all the plain of Jordan, that it is well watered every where, before יהוה Iod-Havah destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as (Eden) the garden of יהוה Iod-Havah, like the land of מצרים Mitzrahim, Egypt, as thou comest unto Tzoar.” - Genesis 13: 10
So then in מצרים Mitzrahim, Egypt, Malkuth we find two types of devotees, namely, those who are slaves of the physical matter and those who are not. As it is written:
“And שרי Sarai Abram's wife (the vessel, the Nukva) bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an (מצרית Mitzraith) Egyptian, whose name was Hagar הגר.” - Genesis 16: 1
The first type of devotee is identified with the physical world, with Hagar הגר, because anybody who becomes attached to their physicality, and to their race and creed from this three dimensional world is a slave of the מצרית Mitzraith, the Egyptian Hagar הגר. This is why it is written:
“Tell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not listen to the law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons (or devotees), one by a slave woman and one by a free woman. But the son of the slave was born according to the (orgasm of the) flesh, while the son of the free woman was born (within) through (sexual alchemy, the) promise. Now this may be interpreted allegorically: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar. Now Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia; she corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children (devotees). But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our (divine) mother (the Nukva). For it is written,
“Rejoice, O (שרי Sarai) barren one who does not bear; break forth and cry aloud, you who are not in (physical) labor!
“For the children of the desolate one (Hagar) will be more than those of (שרה Sarah) the one who has (Chesed, Abraham as) a husband.”
“Now you, brothers (devotees), like Isaac, are children of (sexual alchemy, the) promise. But just as at that time he who was born according to the (orgasm of the) flesh persecuted him who was born according to the (Binah, the Holy) Spirit, so also it is now. But what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the slave woman and her (fanatic) son, for the son (or devotee) of the slave woman shall not inherit with the son of the free woman (the Nukva שרה Sarah).” So, brothers, (alchemically speaking,) we are not children of the slave (of race, creed) but of the free woman (the Nukva).” - Galatians 4: 21-31
Hagar, the servant of שרי Sarai, is a symbol.
We explained in previous lectures that Malkuth has two wombs.
The spiritual womb is related with שרה Sarah. The spiritual womb is the spinal medulla. Genesis calls it the Tree of Life. That spiritual womb related to שרה Sarah, she has to beget Isaac in her womb.
Yet, there is another womb in Malkuth, which is the womb of the מצרית Mitzraith, the Egyptian Hagar within the female physical body. This is the uterus of any woman, and that womb is a servant of שרי Sarai, which represent the fecundating fires of the head that descend through the spinal medulla into Yesod (sex). The female uterus begets children for the physical world. Yet, our spinal medulla begets children for El, Chesed, Abraham. This is the promise. The covenant with Iod-Havah Elohim is fulfilled in the spinal medulla, which is the womb that God, El, Chesed, Abraham relates to and is concerned with.
All the devotees of religions are born in the womb, in the uterus of Hagar. Everybody is a proselyte of the first womb. When Abram, Chesed, the Spirit, descends into מצרים Mitzrahim, Egypt, the matter, it wants to fulfill the commandments of Jehovah Elohim, the Holy Spirit, which is the sexual energy. But he always begins, begotten, creating in the first womb which is Hagar, which represents the Nukva who creates proselytes for this tridimensional world. Hagar also relates to that Nukva, Sangha, church, temple, movement, religion, or group of people that know the mysteries of Kabbalah, Daath, knowledge, alchemy, but who never fulfill it in themselves: such devoted people are called in the Bible “Ishmael.”
This is why it is written that Hagar begot Ishmael from Abram. Yet, Sarah begot Isaac from Abraham. Through sexual alchemy the creative sexual force, the spiritual fiery force of the Nukva Sarah ascends along the medullar canal to the brain, it rises through the Brahma-nadi from Yesod, the sexual organs into the Muladhara chakra to the Sahasrara Chakra, the crown chakra, Kether. So in Isaac and Ishmael we find a duality.
The first son of Abram is also the child of Hagar, in Hebrew Ha-Gar ה-גר, means, “the proselyte,” Ishmael ישמעאל, meaning, the one who listen to God. As you see, the name Ishmael ישמעאל begins with יש Ish – fire, Iod and Shin. The next letters Mem and Ayin מע Ma addresses the guts, the insides of Malkuth, our physicality, since Mem is the symbol of water, the mother, and in Hebrew Ayin עין means eyes, מע Ma in reverse is עם Om, which means people, issue, etc. And as we already know “El אל" is God. Ishma ישמע, the fiery force of ישראל Israel is issued inside the mother, the Nukva Hagar. Alchemically, Ishmael ישמעאל the first son of Abram means that "יש Ish" all the prototype elements, archetypes of the fire of the God RA "ישראל Israel” and the Goddess "ישיש Isis" are inside the מצרית Mitzraith, the Egyptian Hagar, Malkuth, but not in activity, only in potentiality.
Laypeople state that ישמעאל Ishmael relates to the Arabs, yet indeed Ishmael represents any religious devotee in this physical world because all of us come from Hagar which is the womb, the uterus of any woman, in Malkuth. Yes, we know that Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia and that she corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for present Jerusalem is in slavery with her children (Jews, Christians, Muslims). Therefore Physically speaking, I am Ishmael, you are Ishmael, any religious devotee in this physical world, whether feminine or masculine, Gentile or Jew are Ishmael. We are the outcome of the orgasm, the discharged fire of the Holy Spirit of God. Fornication originates the exile because Ishmael was born in exile. Our physicality, the sephirah Malkuth, is a fallen sephirah, a discharged sephirah. We all are Ishmaelites born in exile, believe it or not.
Physically speaking all of us are Kabbalists, collectors, receiver machines of solar energy, children of Abram, because in the beginning the spirit of God that hovers upon the face of the waters through the doctrine creates proselytes, that is, Ishmaelite religious devotees that in the physical world listen to the word of God; then later, the Spirit of Elohim as Abraham, Chesed, the spirit, by means of sexual alchemy, creates Isaac within the psyche of those proselytes or religious devotees. Thus this is just up to Chesed, the “El אל" internal God of the devotee. So this is why it is written that the children of the slave Hagar are many thousands, but the children of Sarah are few. Or as Christ alchemically said:
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” - Matthew 22: 14
“Of a thousand that seek me, one finds me; of a thousand that find me, one follows me; of the thousand that follow me, one is mine.”
“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man (Abraham) be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man (Abraham) be. Then shall two be in the field (of Yesod); the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one (Sarah) shall be taken, and the other (Hagar) left..” - Matthew 24: 37-41
In order to create Isaac in Geburah which is the son of Abraham and Sarah, we need to physically enter into initiation. It is written in the bible that when Abraham begat Isaac he was one hundred years old. Age in esotericism is related with initiations. One hundred years old is related with the first creation in the spinal column. When the initiate enters, physically, into the path, then his own inner Being, his own Chesed, his own Abraham begat within his or her womb which is the spinal medulla Isaac and this is how Sah-Ra, the lunar and solar forces in that physical body creates Isaac. So this is how we reach one hundred years of age. That is the symbolic age of the first initiation of major mysteries.
Isaac is the outcome of the development of Geburah, our divine consciousness in relation with the kundalini in the physical body. In Genesis this divine consciousness, Geburah, is call Isaac. Isaac יצחק is written with the letters Iod, Tzadik, Chet and Kuf. The letter Iod along with the letter Tzadik makes the latinized IS sound of his name; that sound reminds us of the two letters Iod in the name Isis as well as in יצחק Isaac, the second fiery Iod of Isaac rises on the back, the spine of the shape of the letter Tzadik. The letters Chet and Tzadik "חק Chek,” means to follow the law. This is why at the end of the name Isaac יצחק is the letter Kuf whose shape represents Resh, the head and Zain, Ida, the left pillar of the tree of life, the left side of the spinal medulla, which as a tail of a (קוף Kuf) monkey goes down to קליפות Klipoth (Hell); upon the head of Kuf we place the קאפל Capel, cap that the Jews and other religious devotees use on top of their heads, when we wear the קאפל Capel on top of our Kuf, it means that we are קדוש kadosh, “holy,” because we are transmuting our sexual energy. The cap on top of Kuf indicates that we are in chastity and that we are acquiring the first level. The cap is the first level. Anybody that reaches the cap or wears the cap indicates that he is somebody that reached the first initiation. Yes, there are many people who traditionally use the קאפל Capel, cap on top of their Kuf but they do not know anything about chastity, because they fornicate like a קוף Kuf (monkey) from קליפות Klipoth (Hell). Even the Pope uses a קאפל Capel, but he does not know about this because he does not have a Nukva, a wife. Because in order for a male devotee to raise the Iod of Isaac, the Iod of Yesod (sex) towards the Iod of Kether, along the spinal medulla (like the Iod on the back of the letter Tzadik) he needs a wife, he needs an Isis. And if the devotee is a woman, she needs the Iod, the phallus of a male devotee, her husband.
Understand, this is not a matter of “I believe because I listen the doctrine” therefore I am going to receive the first initiation of major mysteries by believing, No! It is not like that.
As above, so below. Whether you are a male or female devotee you need a Nukva, you need Malkuth, the female aspect of God here below. Because as you see, in order for a male and female to practice sexual alchemy they need their Nukva, which is always present in their male or female physicalities. So, it is not just by believing or belonging to any religious group that we are going to develop internally.
The Bible states that before Isaac is born, Ishmael is born. Ishmael represents the outcome of Egypt. How are men going to have children in this physical world without women, or vice versa? Ishmael is born because a woman and man sexually united. So everybody in the beginning is begetting children through the orgasm of the flesh. We all know that. Thus Ishmael represents the devoted religious people that know the mystery of alchemy. We might say the first covenant which are people that study the knowledge, whether they are Jews or Hindus or Buddhists, Christians, doesn’t matter. As long as we are studying the doctrine we will be an Ishmael. In this physical world we all are children of the Mitzraith-Egyptian Hagar.
Thus, if we want to accomplish the promise given unto Abraham, your own spirit, then we have to transmute the sexual energy and for that we have to love the two Iods of our inner Goddess Isis in the sexual act, which are precisely the two Iods of Isaac יצחק which is the child that is born in the spinal medulla.
Ishmael is born in the uterus of any woman but Isaac is born from Sah-Ra in the spinal medulla whether it is the spinal medulla of a man or a woman. And that is what the cap or קאפל Capel, or letter Kuf at the end of the name of Isaac יצחק symbolizes. This is why the name Isaac יצחק presents the חק Chok, laws of the mysteries of Isis, the mysteries of Egypt because Isis is the mystery of the laws of the Goddess in Egypt. Isis ישיש is alchemically written with Iod and shin because the woman, Malkuth, our male-female physicalities cause to rejoice the fire of the Holy Ghost, אל שדי El-Shaddai, in the sexual act.
The first initiation is attained when Abraham (Chesed, the Innermost of the devotee) reaches one hundred years of age in Malkuth, and then above in the world of the spirit Abraham (Chesed) absorbs his son Isaac (the fires of Malkuth through Geburah). Geburah is the divine soul. Geburah is justice, so Isaac, the fires from Malkuth ascend into Geburah. So, in the first initiation of major mysteries Isaac, Geburah, and Chesed Abraham become one flame.
And that is why in Kabbalah when we talk about Isaac, we are talking about Abraham, because Abraham and Isaac are the same flame.
“No one is a master by the mere fact of having received the First Initiation of Major Mysteries. This only means that the initiate entered the current which leads to Nirvana.” - Samael Aun Weor
In order for the human soul (Tiphereth) to achieve mastery, that is, the union with Chesed and Geburah, to become one flame, the human soul (Tiphereth )has to absorb the fire from the four rivers of Eden.
Remember, from Daath which is the upper Eden, a river flows and becomes divided into four streams, the four Nukvas, namely, Sarah, Rebeka, Leah and Rachel. The four streams of the river of creation, the ray of creation, represent the four elements of alchemy, or the four Cherubim of Ezekiel. The first one is the winged lion, which is Abraham, the fire of the fire, Chesed. The second one is the winged bull which is Isaac the fire of the earth, Geburah. The third is the eagle which is Jacob, which represents the fire from the air, Tiphereth. And the fourth is the angel which is Joseph which represents the fire of the water, Yesod. From Joseph emerges Moses in Malkuth-Egypt, the man into the image of God, who is the outcome of all the initiations that we are explaining here.
All the initiations of Abraham coming from Ur into Egypt and begotten Issac with Sarah is the recollection of all the minor initiations, and the first initiation of major mysteries that the Chesed of each one of us has to accomplish. Because through those initiations is how little by little the twelve attributes of Chokmah descend, which are the attributes of Christ, or archetypes of Israel that we need in order to be developed as a human being. In Atziluth we have Chokmah, the second Sephirah that is represented by the twelve zodiacal signs.
When you study Astrology and Kabbalah, you find that Chokmah is associated with the twelve constellations of the zodiac. These twelve constellations are related with the twelve tribes of Israel in Tiphereth, which as lights descend through our central nervous system and settle within our semen as the twelve archetypes from Atziluth. This why after Abraham, Chesed, finishes the first initiation of major mysteries, after absorbing the fires of Malkuth into Geburah, Jehovah says:
“By myself I have sworn, says יהוה (Iod-Havah – Chokmah in Atziluth), for because you have done this thing, and hast not withheld (in Malkuth the fire of) your son, your only son: That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your semen as the stars of the heavens.” - Genesis 22: 16, 17
Uranus and Venus
All the stars in the firmament of the zodiac are the archetypes, the light that descends from above in each one of us. This is why יהוה Iod-Havah, Chokmah, Christ, the second Sephirah of the Holy Trinity encloses these twelve archetypes. And this is why it is written that from Chokmah those archetypes enter into the Nukva, because Chokmah gathers that light in Atziluth. Do you know how the heavens are call in Greek? They are call Ουρανός Ouranos. This is how the heaves of Chokmah are called; Ουρανός Ouranos. This is why Chokmah is astrologically associated with the planet Uranus. Thus, when you see Ουρανός Ouranos in Chokmah, this does not mean the planet itself but what Ουρανός Ouranos means in Greek, that is, heaven. The forces of the archetypes in heaven, the twelve constellations, the twelve tribes are as archetypes within Chokmah within the zodiac. And that is Ουρανός Ouranos.
In Greek mythology, Uranus is the first that appears as king of the universe. Uranus is precisely one among the Greek trinity, namely, Uranus, Gaia and Eros, the Holy Trinity in Greek. Thus, Uranus relates to Chokmah which is wisdom, the Son, the Christ, where the twelve tribes are as archetypes.
Eros is the holy spirit. It is easy to understand because the word erotica is from Eros. It means something sexual. Sexual force. Eros or cupid which in Hebrew is represented by the angel Anael.
Iin the lecture the Parsufim we stated that the fourth Nukva or fourth type of woman, which is Virgin Adept is called Urania-Venus, a name associated with Erôs-Cupīdō and Ουρανός Ouranos the heavens. Urania-Venus a Virgin Adept from the heavens of Daath, in other words, any woman in this Earth that reaches that level of mastery is equal to Urania-Venus, the fourth type of woman, a superior woman. Now what is this woman called Urania Venus? Well, let us talk now about Greek mythology and let us put aside for a while the Hebrew mythology. Let us enter into Greek mythology.
Uranus, the king of the heavens was taken out of his throne by Saturn, one of his sons. Saturn represents Binah, the Holy Spirit, in the tree of life. Saturn is the archetype associated with Kronos, time. Kronos-Saturn with his scythe castrates his father Uranus. In other words it is easy to understand that the sexual power of the Holy Spirit emerges from the sexual power of Chokmah. Because thereafter Saturn becomes the king of the universe. From the castration of Ουρανός Ouranos, blood falls in the ocean, in Schamayim שמים, the superior waters of heaven, in other words, the Akashic ocean, which corresponds to מים Mayim, the waters in Yesod (sex) here in the earth. Ffrom the foam of the Akashic ocean emerges Ἀφροδίτη Aphrodite, which in Roman terms is Venus, the goddess of love. So the daughter of Ουρανός Ouranos, the daughter of Chokmah is Venus, Aphrodite, because she is born from the ἀφρός (aphrós, “foam”) the foam of his testicles, and as you see, by the action of the scythe of Saturn, the Holy Spirit, which is Binah. Thus, Aphrodite, Venus is Urania-Venus. This is indeed a beautiful symbology. This is why Dante Alighieri, the great Italian Master, says, very clear in his Divine Comedy, when chanting to Urania-Venus to Aphrodite in heaven, he says; “ Divine Mother, daughter of thy son”, daughter of Chokmah, he calls her, daughter of Ουρανός Ouranos, Divine Mother Urania-Venus, daughter of Ουρανός Ouranos, the Christ, the Son, the second aspect of the trinity because the second aspect descends with all the archetypes within the womb of Urania-Venus into the Earth. This is how Christ descends, sacrifices, enters through Sarai, through Abraham into Egypt. This is how in this myth is enclosed the same symbols of the story of Abraham. We find these archetypes, as you see, not only in the Bible but also in Greek mythology.
Everybody has this beautiful Venus inside, but in heaven. If we want her to be in the earth, then this beautiful Venus, daughter of Ουρανός Ouranos has to rise in our spine, through a castration, better said, through the act of sexual alchemy, the Holy Spirit castrates the sexual forces of Chokmah so that our Divine Mother Kundalini can rise from the foam of Yesod in our spine. The Kundalini is what in Christianity is called Mary, in Egypt Isis, she has many names because she is symbolized in many religions as Maia, Reah, Cibeles, etc.
From the female fires of Venus is how our Inner Abraham have to beget Isaac. Venus is Sarai who has to descend from the heaven and to beget Isaac as Sarah, inside of us. This is the unfoldment of the female cosmic force into each one of us. In order to create eventually Adam into the image of God from the waters of Genesis, because sexual alchemy is precisely the mystery of Daath, the explanation of the creation of Adam into the image of God, through the initiation from the sexual waters of heavens and earth.
It is not, as many laypeople think, when they read literally the Bible that God made them as Adam into his own image. Yet, this is written about Adam, not about them. They think that the Adam of the Bible refers also to Ishmael. Despite what is written:
“And Abraham said unto Elohim, O that Ishmael might live before thee! And Elohim said, Sarah your wife shall bear for you a son indeed; and you shall call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his semen after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto you at this set time in the next year. And he left off talking with him, and Elohim went up from Abraham.” - Genesis 17: 18-22
Thus Elohim has no covenant with Ishmael because he is the outcome of the orgasm of the flesh. The covenant of chastity is not with Ishmael but with Isaac because through him is how the forces of Israel, the archetypes descend into Jacob, Tiphereth to be developed in each one of us.
So you see, Israel is made by the archetypes, that have to become the עם סגולה Chosen Om, chosen issue in each one of us. Israel is the light of Chokmah, all of the parts of the Being, all of the parts of Chokmah, of Ουρανός Ouranos, heaven, made עם Om. This is why in Kabbalah we say that in the beginning Israel emanates from Chokmah and through Binah enters into the womb of Sarah in Daath and descends unfolds through Abraham in Egypt. Let us study the story in Genesis.
After Chesed reaches the first initiation of major mysteries which is the union of our divine, cosmic soul with our spirit within, we need to continue the path because remember that Malkuth is only the physical body, the very bottom of the Tree of Life. We need to raise the creative fire of the Holy Ghost inside all of the seven lower Sephiroth in order to create Adam into the image of Elohim within. Elohim is above in Daath, the Higher Eden but he descends as a river into Yesod, the Lower Eden, in order to help us.
The Four Nukvas
“And a river went out of (the Higher) Eden to water the garden (the Lower Eden); and from thence (Daath) it was parted, and became into four heads." - Genesis 2: 10
Isaac (Geburah) follows the sequence of initiations. He is the one that engenders Jacob (Tiphereth) in Yesod, the superior part of our physical body, through the second Initiation as follows:
“And Isaac (Geburah) went out to meditate at the end of the day (sunset) in the field (Yesod): and he lifted up his "עין Ayin" eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming (from Chesed). And Rebekah lifted up her "עין Ayin" eyes (towards Geburah), and when she (from Chesed) saw Isaac (in the field of Yesod), she lighted off the camel (and joint him in Yesod).” - Genesis 24: 63, 63
Isaac marries Rebekah. So, Rebekah (from Chesed) marries Isaac (from Geburah), this is why before Genesis continues talking about Rebekah Genesis states:
“Then again Abraham, Chesed, took a wife, and her name was קטורה Keturah (Geburah).... And Abraham (Chesed, through רבקה Rebekah) gave all that he had unto יצחק Isaac (Geburah). But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had (in Malkuth), Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward (towards Yesod), unto the east country (Tiphereth). And the years of Abraham's life were one hundred seventy and five years. Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people. - Genesis 25: 1, 5-8
Observe that the letter ק Kuf in whose shape is the letter Resh, the head, is at its right, and the letter Zain at its left. Zain is Ida, the left pillar of the tree of life, the left side of the spinal medulla, which goes down to קליפות Klipoth. Kuf is at the end of יצחק Isaac, at the middle of רבקה Rebekah and at the beginning of קטורה Keturah. This means that all of these archetypes belong to Geburah.
Thus, Abraham had another concubine. Sarah was his first wife and his second wife was קטורה Keturah. Hagar הגר was his first concubine, but the scripture here says plural “concubines,” but does not name the second one, thus Abraham had two concubines in Malkuth, thus totaling four women. So these four women are the four Nukvas, the four rivers of Eden. Alchemically, the four rivers of Eden represent all the sexual forces of the tree of life related to the archetypes which are always related to the Nukva, the feminine aspect.
It is written in Genesis that Isaac marries also these four aspects of the Nukva or the four rivers of Eden. Yet, it is written in a simple alchemical manner, as follows:
“And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent (Yesod), and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother.” - Genesis 24: 67
And Isaac brought רבקה Rebekah into his mother Sarah's tent (Yesod, the alchemical chamber), because the creative lunar-solar forces Sah-Ra in Yesod were the forces of his mother. And took Rebekah (from Chesed) as the first Nukva, the River Gihon; and She (קטורה Keturah, Geburah) became his wife, this is the River Pison; and he loved Her (in Tiphereth, the heart) this is the River Hiddikel; and Isaac was comforted after his mother, this is the River Euphrates (the two male-female polarities, Sah-Ra in Yesod). Why is it written in that manner? Why is not written Isaac took Rebekah as his wife and two concubines as Abraham?. It is written in this way in four steps in order to indicate that when Isaac brought Rebekah “into his mother Sarah's tent,” Sarah and Keturah and the two concubines of Abraham were in Rebekah as one.
Why is Genesis mentioning the four Nukvas of Abraham, namely, Sarah, Hagar, Keturah and the other concubine since for Isaac only the name Rebekah is mentioned as four rivers in one? Because every initiation begins in Yesod, the superior part of Malkuth, which is the lower Eden, where all the four rivers that flow from the river of Daath, merged together again as one sexual force during sexual alchemy, namely, רבקה Rebekah: ר Resh, the head, Chesed, the River Gihon; ב Beth, בת ראשי Beth-Rashi, Geburah, the daughter of my head, the River Pison; ק Kuf, the letter Zain that emerges from the letter Resh, the head, Tiphereth, the River Hiddekel; and ה Hei the last letter of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, Yesod, sex in Malkuth, the River Euphrates.
Jacob and Esau
When Chesed, our Innermost, starts working in the second initiation of major mysteries we work with these forces that are represented in the four ethers or four tattvas of Yesod. These are the four Nukvas that come to us through sexual alchemy, sexual union. And in Yesod the lunar-solar duality of these two male-female forces or four rivers of Eden is where Isaac engenders within Rebekah two children, Jacob and Esau.
“And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, [there were] twins in Rebekah’s womb. And the first came out (אדום edom) red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name עשו Esau (עשה Assiah (Malkuth)). And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called יעקב Jacob.” - Genesis 25: 24-26
In Yesod (sex) we always find the lunar-solar duality of the sexual force of עשה Assiah, the world of matter and action. We also find this duality in Daath, the throat. Esau is written עשו Ayin, Shin, Vav, meaning, to profit from עשה Assiah, the world of matter and action. And Jacob, יעקב Iod, Ayin, Kuf, Beth, represents the ascension of the Kundalini in the spinal column of the vital body of the initiate by stealing the sexual force from עשה Assiah.
Here, Jacob and Esau represent the duality of Yesod-Malkuth, two bodies. It is written in the Zohar that עשו Esau recollects אד Od, the forces of the שרפים Seraphim, the serpent from Isaac (Geburah) into עשה Assiah, the physical body of the initiate. Yet, יעקב Jacob, in Yesod (sex), through the second initiation of major mysteries, recollects אד Od and אב Ob the left and right creative sexual forces of Geburah and Gedulah (Isaac and Abraham) from the left and right pillars of the tree of life. In alchemy these two sexual forces are call אב Ob and אד Od.
From Isaac (Geburah), we receive אד Od in Yesod (sex), which becomes the physical animal sexual might of עשה Assiah, עשו Esau. From Chesed (Abraham) we receive אב Ob in Tiphereth (the heart), which becomes the spiritual sexual might of Jacob. So, the two forces, animal and spiritual, are represented in the duality of Esau and Jacob respectively. Jacob emerges from the sublimation of אב Ob, the fires of אברהם Abraham and אד Od the animal fires of עשה Assiah עשו Esau. We need to transmute אד Od the animal fire of עשה Assiah, עשו Esau. We need to transmute that which is animal into human, Jacob (Tiphereth). We need to place Jacob from Yesod in Tiphereth. Jacob is that archetype in us fights against the masculine might of Geburah in Yesod. If you read the Bible you will read that Jacob in Yesod fights against an "איש Ish,” the male fire of Elohim Gibbor. As it is written:
“And the ("איש Ish”) male fire said unto him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince have you power with (עם־אלהים Om Elohim) the Issue of the Elohim (אב Ob), and (ועם אנשים and the Om Enoshim) the issue of Humans (אד Od), and has prevailed.” - Genesis 32: 27, 28
By controlling אב Ob and אד Od the initiate is conquering Eden, Yesod, again. Many Kabbalists state that such "איש Ish male” fire of Elohim is the angel Samael, the Logos of Geburah, yet, it is better to state that "איש Ish male” is Elohim Gibbor (אלהים גבר), who represents the Giborim (גברים), the positive male sexual might of Samael in Scorpio. In Yesod, Jacob exercises control over the אד Od of עשה Assiah, his own tempting sexual animal might, represented in his brother עשו Esau. The might of עשה Assiah עשו Esau in his own physicality is in Yesod.
The Hebrew word אדמה (adamah) is the feminine form of אדם (Adam); both words are rooted in the word אדום (edom) meaning "red" and דם (dom) meaning blood. As it is written:
“But there went up a mist (אד Od) from (עשה Assiah, Malkuth) the earth, and watered the whole face of (Edom אדום) the ground (עשו Esau). And Iod-Havah Elohim formed Adam of the dust of (Edom אדום, Adamah אדמה) the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam (Jacob, Tiphereth) became a living soul (in Yesod, Eden).” - Genesis 2: 6, 7
This is why it is written that when Jacob came from his mother’s womb his hand took hold of Yesod, עשו Esau's heel, his brother; and he was named יעקב Jacob (seized by עקב Akob, the heel).
Thetis Dipping Achilles into the River Styx
In other words, as the hero Achilles who immediately after his birth was held by one heel by his mother (the immortal Nereid, the Nukva Thetis) dipped him into the River Styx in order to make him immortal as well. The heel itself did not touch the waters and so it remained wicked and vulnerable; likewise, Esau’s weakness was his heel, Yesod (sex). Esau’s heel represents the sexual animal might of עשה Assiah (Malkuth), our physicality. It was here that Esau (like Achilles) was eventually defeated by Jacob (his brother). The heel of עשו Esau represents the sexual animal might of Yesod in עשה Assiah. The strength of Jacob emerges from the transmutation of the animal might of Malkuth, Assiah עשה or עשו Esau, which is the fiery sexual might of Elohim Gibor (אלהים גבר) from Samael in Yesod.
At birth Esau עשו is עשה Assiah our matter or physicality, which is the first body that emerges from Yesod (sex). Jacob emerges as the body of liberation from the transmutation of the sexual might of Esau עשו. Esau is our animal physicality and Jacob is our human physicality represented by the body of liberation, this is why it is written that Jacob and Esau were twins.
“A new ultra-sensible physical body (Jacob), filled with millenarian perfection, has been formed from the finest atoms of the physical body. It has the majestic appearance of the cosmic Christ and is eternal and incorruptible. This vehicle, that replaces the physical body of clay (Esau), has been formed in (Yesod) the vital depth of our clay body in the same manner that a chick is formed within the egg.” - Igneous Rose by Samael Aun Weor
This is why the inheritance of Isaac falls to Jacob (Yesod) and not Esau (Malkuth) because by means of sexual alchemy Jacob is our superior physicality that rises from the finest atoms of our animal physicality. Jacob represents therefore the ascension of the sexual might in the spinal column or the spinal medulla of the vital body. The outcome of many alchemical works in Yesod within our inner psyche or Jacob becomes as a consequence the creation of what is call in Buddhism the Bodhichitta (“Wisdom Mind”), or Adam in Yesod. This is why in symbolism Yesod is usually represented by Adam or by the face of Adam. The Bodhicitta is in Yesod and the Bodhisattva (“Essence of Wisdom”) is in Tiphereth. Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth and Yesod sephiroth represent the four Cherubim of Ezekiel, namely, Adam in Yesod, the Eagle in Tiphereth, the Bull in Geburah and the Lion in Chesed. The living soul (Adam, the Bodhichitta, the resurrected Master) emerges in Yesod (Eden), because the Monad (Chesed, Geburah and Tiphereth) converge in the body of liberation, the resurrected physicality in Yesod (Eden). Thus, this is how through sexual alchemy we start creating the human soul (the terrestrial Adam, the Bodhicitta in Yesod), that will eventually develop as a vehicle of the Bodhisattva (Tiphereth). This is how Yesod is alchemically associated with Tiphereth. Jacob is the Bodhisattva (Tiphereth), the Child of Isaac (Geburah) and Abraham (Chesed). The resurrected physical body is the physical body of Jacob, the body of liberation, the rainbow body, the Bodhicitta, the body of Israel (Tiphereth), the living soul in Yesod (Eden). Because the human soul has its foundation in sex.
When we start developing our Bodhicitta we do it by extracting, taking אד Od, the sexual animal might of Assiah עשה, which is the inheritance that we receive in our physicality from Chesed, Geburah, and Tiphereth. That sexual might belongs to Esau עשו but we take it to receive the blessings of אברהם Abraham, the alchemical אב Ob, by means of sexual transmutation, thanks to the advice from Rebekah, the Divine Mother. So all the forces of the four rivers of Eden originate Jacob and Esau, the duality. First this duality manifests in Malkuth through Ishmael and Isaac, they correspond to the physical world, Malkuth. The second duality Jacob and Esau correspond to Yesod, the superior aspect of Malkuth. Jacob is the one that conquers the cubic stone of Yesod. As it is written:
“And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of Elohim ascending and descending on it (Yesod). And, behold, the Iod-Havah stood above it (Yesod), and said, I am Iod-Havah the Elohim of Abraham your father, and the Elohim of Isaac: the land (Yesod) whereon you lie down, to you will I give it, and to your semen; And your semen shall be as the dust of the earth, and (from Yesod) you shall spread abroad to the west (Malkuth), and to the east (Tiphereth), and to the north (Chesed), and to the south (Geburah): and in you and in your semen shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” - Genesis 28: 10-14
The Bodhicitta in Yesod (the fourth dimension) continues in a third octave collecting the astral light of Hod from the fifth dimension through the sublimation of the energy of the semen from our physicality, Egypt, Malkuth. This is done in the fifth dimension through the spinal medulla of the lunar protoplasmic body, or astral specter, the shell from Klipoth by means of the sexual alchemical work of Joseph (the Buddhata) in Malkuth, Egypt. The archetype Joseph is the issue of Jacob (Tiphereth) within the womb of the Nukva Rachel.
“The Astral Light (of Hod) is a terrific sexual fire springing from the Sun's nimbus (Jacob, Tiphereth) and is fixed to the Earth (Malkuth, Rachel) by the force of gravity and the weight of the atmosphere. The Sun (Jacob, Tiphereth) is the one that attracts and repels such an enchanting and delightful light. The Astral Light is Archimedes' lever. The old sage said: "Give me a fulcrum and I will move the universe." The semen is the human being's Astral liquid (in Malkuth). The semen is the Astral Light. The semen is the key to all powers and the key to all empires. The Astral Light has two poles, one positive (astral solar body) and the other negative (astral specter, lunar protoplasmic body). The ascending serpent (in the astral specter) is positive. The descending serpent (in the astral specter) is negative." - Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony
The outcome of the ascending serpent through the spinal medulla (the womb of רחל Rachel) of the astral specter in the fifth dimension is the birth (within the heart of Jacob, Tiphereth) of the solar astral body, named Benjamin in Genesis. The astral solar body is formed within the head (ר), spinal medulla (ח), and heart (ל) (the womb of רחל Rachel) of the astral specter as a chick is formed within the eggshell from Klipoth. Rachel רחל namely, ר Resh, the head, ח Chet, חוה Chavah-Eve, life, the astral light that rises from Yesod, sex, through Zain and Vav, Ida and Pingala through the spinal medulla towards ל Lamed, לב Leb, a heart that through the tree of Knowledge understands ח Chet, חוה Chavah-Eve in the ר Resh, the head.
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which kills the prophets, and stone them that are sent unto you; how often would I have gathered your children together, as a hen does gather her chicks under her wings, but you did not want it! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, You shall not see me again, until the time come when you shall say, Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.” - Luke 13: 34, 35
Through the Exodus of Moses, Joseph and the rest of the archetypes of Israel emerge little by little from Klipoth, the shells, of Malkuth (Egypt) into the Nukva, the Promised Land.
We have to state that the patriarch Isaac also existed, likewise the great prophet, the great patriarch. Jacob, who was the Bodhisattva of the Angel Israel and Joseph the patriarch in Egypt. However we are not talking about those sacred individuals or aeons. We are talking about the alchemical symbols which their archetypes represent in us. Thus, if we want to be children of the promise, we have to enter into initiation.
It is not that we have to physically be born or to be circumcised in the Jewish, Islamic, or to be baptized in the Zoroastrian, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, religions in order to be a עם סגולה Chosen Om, chosen issue. No! If we want to become a עם סגולה Chosen Om, chosen issue, we have to choose chastity. We have to enter into the path of initiation and little by little to become a chosen one by our own sexual will through different initiatic levels. This is what to be a (עם סגולה Chosen Om) chosen issue, means. It does not mean to believe in anything or to follow any tradition, but to follow Christ, the astral light, on the path of initiation. This is how Israel the light of Chokmah in Atziluth enters into Nukva, our physicality.
“For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the (כלה ישיש) "bride Isis" your Goddess rejoice over you.” - ישעיהו Isaiah 62: 5
Sequentially, by following the story of Genesis, we know very well that Jacob, which is related to Tiphereth and Yesod, is the one that materializes the twelve tribes, the light of the twelve zodiacal signs in Malkuth, Egypt. After he conquers Esau in Yesod, the stone of Yesod, Tiphereth, Jacob, engenders the children of Israel. Joseph emerges as the eleventh child in order for Chesed to conquer Hod through the third initiation of major mysteries. This is written in the story of the twelve children of Israel. Jacob also had four wives.
Genesis states that Jacob’s first wife was Leah but he was in love with Rachel. Leah and Rachel both have the letter Lamed which connects לב Leb, the heart to the head through the rivers Hiddekel and Euphrates. Leah לאה is the hidden mystery of the Sephiroth, which is the Hei הא above, the breath of God inside ל Lamed, לב Leb, the heart, Tiphereth; while Rachel represents the manifestation in Malkuth, Egypt of the mysteries of the astral light of Hod and Yesod. Rachel only had two children, Joseph and Benjamin, inferior and superior astral bodies. Leah had six children plus one daughter. The daughter of Leah and Jacob and the other six brothers represent the six lower Sephiroth. The seventh Malkuth is their daughter דינה Dinah, who relates to the Hei הא below in Malkuth, אדני Adonai. Dinah דינה is not taken among the twelve tribes because דינה Dinah, Malkuth is a fallen Sephirah. All the fires from Geburah גבורה are related to דינה Dinah which in the book of Genesis is raped by a prince. Read her story in Genesis. Such story represents Malkuth, our physicality because it is written that דינה Dinah goes outside the land and sees the daughters of the land, which is what we do.
Who are those daughters of the land? The others Malkuth or physicalities, the other physical bodies of the souls that identify with the beautiful daughters of Nahemah. In other words, we in this physical world always get identified with animal sexuality and because of that our psyche is raped, our consciousness is raped. So that is what דינה Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob with Leah represents, the female aspect of our physical body, since Malkuth is a feminine sephirah.
The six children of Leah the first sister represent all of the seven lower Sephiroth. The other two children, Joseph and Benjamin, are related with Rachel whom Jacob, Tiphereth was in love with which represent the other Nukva below, in Malkuth.
The story of the third initiation of major mysteries begins with Joseph. The esoteric meaning of the story of Joseph is written in the book The Seven Words by Samael Aun Weor. That book relates to the third initiation of the major mysteries which is the transformation of Joseph which represents the Buddhata within the astral/lunar body, Hod into the superior astral body which is called Benjamin. Read The Seven Words in order to understand better because we are talking here in general.
Genesis ends with the story of Joseph. Then Exodus begins with the story of Aaron and Moses. The entire story of Joseph relates to creation of the astral solar body which is Benjamin. Benjamin represents the first solar body of זעיר אנפין Zeir Anpin from the gathering of the superior forces from אריך אנפין Arik Anpin through Joseph whose Kama Rupa, body of desires or lunar astral body represents the lower astral forces that crystallize into each one of us through mechanical evolution
This lecture, in synthesis, gives us some principles; we are placing in your mind the archetypical information for you to study how this return, or entrance of Israel into Nukva is fulfilled. If you want to enter into the (עם סגולה Chosen Om) chosen issue, to be a (עם סגולה Chosen Om) chosen issue, you have to know that Israel is within you at different levels. The children of Israel are the archetypes of Elohim within you. The archetypes of Elohim within every single soul that is born under any zodiacal sign among the twelve constellations.
You need to enter into initiation, and in order to enter into initiation you have to know how to handle your Nukva. The Nukva below is your physical body. We also explained in the other lecture that the Nukva is related with three Shabbats. The word Shabbat begins with Shin, which is Saturday in English; and letter Beth and letter Tav which makes the word Bat which in Hebrew it means daughter. So when we say Shabbat we are saying “the daughter of the fire.” So in other words, the mysteries of Shabbat are the mysteries of fire within the Nukva, and this why the third commandment of Elohim says, “You shall keep my Shabbat holy.” We have to keep the physical body (which is the Shabbat or Malkuth) holy. We must also, keep the other daughter of the fire which is above, the Divine Mother, holy, this is done by honoring the commandments of Abba father and Ama mother Elohim. We have to keep the other Shabbat which is the sexual act holy by not fornicating. Those are the three Shabbats that we have to keep holy.
So to keep the Shabbat, the daughter of God holy does not mean that we do not have to work on Saturday as all the laypeople do, namely, Adventists, Pentecostals, etc... do not work on Saturday because they think that in that way they are accomplishing the third commandment, namely, you shall keep my Sabbath holy. They do not keep it, even if they do not move any finger on that day. In order to keep the Sabbath means, keep my wife, keep my daughter above and below holy because she is Shabbat, the daughter of the fire which is above and below.
The only way to keep the Shabbat holy is by entering into initiation, into chastity because if we prostitute our physicality we are not keeping our own particular Shabbat, our physical body, our Nukva, holy.
If we prostitute, if we injure a woman with our sight, if we look at any Nukva in a lustful manner, Jesus said:
"You have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looks on a (Nukva) woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in their heart." - Matthew 5: 27, 28
We are committing adultery with her in our heart. Because we are injuring the Nukva, the “bat” daughter of the fire, the Shabbat. This is why, according to tradition the authentic, the righteous one, is the Tzadik, that is Isaac. The initiate should not see other people with lust. Many laypeople, according to tradition, do not see others, that is not their spouse, in order not to look at them with lust. However, the truth is that we have to learn how to see others without lust in order to keep the Shabbat holy. Every woman is a representation of the daughter, because the Nukva is a female. So anybody that looks at women lustfully does not keep the Sabbath holy. It is difficult to learn to see others without lust, it is very difficult.
Master Samael Aun Weor said you have to learn to see even your wife without lust. If you see your wife, your Nukva, not other women, only your wife with lust you are injuring the daughter of God, injuring the mother, the Shabbat, the daughter of the fire.
So this implies that we have to enter into initiation and to follow the path, as you remember, the King or the Emperor or the Pharaoh of Egypt also committed many mistakes with Sarah, the wife of Abraham, Abimelech also. And God punished them because it is written, you have to keep my Sabbath holy. But they injured her, they looked at Sarah in the wrong way and that was the problem. So everything we read in the Bible related to adultery, looking at the spouse of Abraham or any other wife or prophet in the wrong way that is related with the Sabbath, the daughter of the fire.
From שבת “Shabbat”, derives many Hebrew names, like "Bat בת" the daughter of ש Shin, the fire or בת-שבע Batsheva, the daughter of the seven.
"The light of the body is the eye (of Isis): if therefore your eye be clear, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness!" - Matthew 6: 22, 23
So this is how the Bible encloses many mysteries. And I repeat, this is why we insist in order to return to Eden, into the promised land we have to know how to respect the Nukva. And for the women we will say the Nukva, the Shabbat for them is their spouse and the physical body of any man that should not covet. You have to see those Nukvas with respect. The first Nukva for men and women is their physical body. So the commandment: you shall not covet your neighbor’s spouse, falls on both sexes because, my physicality is my Nukva, my physical body, my Shabbat.
This is how we understand those commandments, namely, You shall not commit adultery and keep the Sabbath holy.
This is a long path. It does not mean that we are going to do it in one week, or one month. It is a psychological work that we must patiently do because it is written, in your patience you will possess your souls.
The Nukva also represents all of the parts of our soul which are bottled up into our ego in Egypt. Such is Israel in exile, the part of our soul, the consciousness bottled up into lust, anger greed, pride, envy, laziness, gluttony, etc, etc, etc. These are in Klipoth, the entrails of Egypt, Malkuth our physicality.
So you see how the Bible alchemically hides all of this? If you have the time to study alchemy and kabbalah, little by little you will end understanding the meaning of all of those archetypes of Genesis.
Questions and Answers
Audience: The archetypes of Egypt or of the being in Egypt, does that mean like, the knowledge has come from Egypt, I just want to understand that.
Instructor: The question is does this doctrine of Kabbalah come from Egypt or from where?
Audience: Well, you have said that the Ego is in Egypt Malkuth.
Instructor: The doctrine of Kabbalah, the doctrine that we are teaching here, belongs to the universe. It was brought by a great angel unto the Earth, that angel is the angel Metatron. Metatron gave the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet to this humanity. And from that alphabet the Hebrew language was originated. In the past, there were many other languages, among them the Hebrew, that were also rooted in the Runic Alphabet.
As you know, according to the Bible, the prophet, the physical prophet, in this case Abraham, came from Ur of the Chaldeans in Asia. Ur spells Aur and means light, which is the light hidden behind the hieroglyphics, archetypes, symbols of Egypt. This means that this knowledge that in these present times is known as Kabbalah was among the Chaldeans, but under another name. Before the Chaldeans this knowledge was among the Shemites, this word begins with Shin. The Shemites are the Semites, who are the root cause, origin of this Aryan Root Race which populates the five continents of the world. There were semite people who did not sexually cross themselves with the other nordic races of the past and who kept their Shemiteism or Semitism among themselves. Among them the Jews and Arabs, who are more Shemites than all of us. This Aryan Root Race has seven branches. The Jews and Arabs are the third branch that emerged from the Semites. But all the races of earth emerged from the Semites in different degrees. The Semites were the fourth subrace of Atlantis, they were the ones who knew the mystery of the name, Shem שם means name in Hebrew. Shem שם is the first son of Noah, the Atlantean Vaisvasvata Manu. This knowledge as it is given today in this present Aryan Root Race, was brought to the Earth by the Hyperboreans into the fourth subrace of the Atlantean-Mayan-Egyptian civilization, which is where the Shemites appeared, who are the ones where present kabbalah has its original roots. The Shemites are the ones who survived the deluge of the Atlantean civilization. As it is written:
And these are the (שמות Shemites) names of the children of Israel, which came into (the Atlantean-Mayan Malkuth) Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob (into the Aryan Root Race). And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob (Tiphereth) were seventy souls (70 is the mystery of the letter ע Ayin, the spiritual eyes of Ra): for Joseph (the seed of the Semites) was in Egypt already." - Exodus 1: 1, 5
The sciences of Kabbalah and Alchemy from the Atlantean Akaldan civilization have its roots in Lemuria. Thus, this doctrine is very old, very ancient.
We are talking about the story of this doctrine in the planet Earth, related to this Aryan Root Race in which we are right now. But this doctrine belongs to the entire universe. It is everywhere and not only on this planet. The numbers, Kabbalah, created the universe through alchemy.
Audience: Just like Abraham and Moses, is Adam also a prophet and a symbol of mankind in the process?
Instructor: Yes, of course, that is unquestionable. But Adam, the word itself, Adam is the conjunction to all of the archetypes, so it could be applied to Abraham, Moses and any master in the universe. We gave many lectures about Adam. Adam is represented above and below, it is an archetype. From Adam emerges Eve. We gave already several lectures on the Garden of Eden, One of three lectures has been already transcribed. So, you can begin by studying that one. While the second and the first transcriptions will eventually appear. In them we explain the cryptic meaning of Adam, which is very difficult for those who do not know kabbalah. We try to explain more and more. If you eventually study the number one and two of the lectures on Adam and thereafter study the number three you will better understand about Adam and Eve.
Audience: I have observing the laws of Moses for fourteen years, dietary laws of Moses. The Shabbat I have learned to apply it as Jesus Christ described it. Is there a stumbling block for observing the additional laws of Israelites for holidays?
Instructor: Well, if you are a Jew you have to follow your tradition but indeed as Jesus said it does not harm what you eat, but what comes out from within your mouth. There are many rules in the book of Moses, the commandments of Moses about how to behave, what to eat but that is if you are transmuting the sexual energy. If you are a true Jew you will understand the why about this dietary law because what you eat is transforming into sexual energy. But if you are not transmuting your sexual energy, if you are just following traditions, it does not matter what you eat. It does not make any difference. But when you enter into the path and you know that the sexual matter is created with what you think, what you eat, what you feel, even the impressions that we receive then you have to select your food, little by little according to your own will. When following traditions, for instance, many do not eat pork because it is an element matter that feeds lust because pig is a devolving animal. This is if you are transmuting your sexual energy, if you are on the path. But, if you are not on the path you can eat pork, as much as you want, it wont hurt you because you are not transmuting. But if you transmute of course you will see that pork really hurts. I know many Jews and Muslims that do not eat pork but they fornicate so it really does not matter. We have to follow the rules inside and to awake in order to know what to do in this physical world.
Audience: I need clarification on the question about Adam. Was Adam a physical man?
Instructor: No, there was not a single physical man in Eden named Adam. Adam represents the Lemurian Hermaphrodite Root Race and many other archetypes. It is stated that Adam received the Kabbalah for the first time from an angel named Raziel but that Adam represents the Lemurian Root Race, the androgynous root race in the beginning that received this doctrine. That was Adam who was male-female, androgynous. That Adam was not yet divided in two halves. That is the representation of the Polar and Hyperboreans Root Races. There was not a person named Adam.
Audience: The Bible is very old and there have been many translations some things have been taken out, things have been added in. How can we be that the symbolism is still intact and valid.
Instructor: Well, let me tell you, buy the Hebrew bible, written in Hebrew, many Bibles are written in Hebrew and English together and many other languages. Thus, by learning the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and the meaning of them, which is already in our website, you will also see that based on your understanding of what is written in Hebrew because the Hebrew language hides all of this wisdom, as you saw. Kabbalah is deeper, sometimes I want to say more, but when you do not know kabbalah and alchemy it is difficult, thus, humanity needs to study these two sciences. Humanity has the Bible in too many languages and translated by people who are not initiates. People who just translate according to their own traditions or fanaticism, yet, they think they are doing good. The only way to comprehend the Hebrew bible is by knowing the twenty-two letters, and by having a dictionary, Hebrew/English dictionary, reading Hebrew and English at the same time in order to understand what you are reading and of course studying and meditating on what is read. The Bible is written according to the Zohar. Many other books of the Bible are based on Kabbalah but are not in the Bible. They called apocrypha. Yet, those are sacred books too. You know, we gnostics, have many books, not only the Hebrew Bible. The Mahabharata is one of the great books of India, the archetypes are also hidden there as well as within many other sacred scriptures but which are not related to the twenty two letters of the Hebrew alphabet, because they were not written originally in the Hebrew language. Yet, you can also learn in them, when you study them, in order to unveil their mysteries.
Audience: Do the books written in other cultures and languages use the same symbolism as we find in the Bible?
Instructor: Yes, of course, every book is written in a double sense, namely, in an exoteric and esoteric manner. In other words, esoteric means, the Kabbalistic and alchemical sense. People only read the literal exoteric sense of it but the esoteric wisdom is hidden within its exoteric. Thus, only if you have "Ayin עין" eyes to see, you will understand. The Holy Quran is written in that manner and many other sacred books.
Audience: The Babylonian Genesis has an account of a battle of planets against Tiamont. How does it relate to Gnosis.
Instructor: I never read anything about that, but if you can relate the planets to the Sephiroth you will understand that Genesis because any type of Genesis is always archetypical, cryptic, symbolic. Do not take that literally. The English gentleman Charles Darwin took Genesis literally, exoterically, because he was not an initiate, thus, he could not understand Genesis, so he could only decide to make his own Bible. It’s called the theory of Evolution where he states that man and ape have a common ancestor. Well, that is Darwin’s Bible, many people believe in that Bible but that is not a Kabbalistic bible it is just a mumbo jumbo, something very superficial.
Thank you very much, and keep the Shabbat holy.
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.
