Evolution, Devolution, and Revolution
My dear brothers and sisters, it is good that tonight we delve deeply into these matters of the consciousness.
Many believe that through the law of evolution, it is possible to reach the intimate self-realization of the Being, and that, naturally, is a gross error. We do not deny the law of evolution; it is obvious that it exists. The absurdity, precisely, consists in attributing psychological aspects to that law that it does not have. It is obvious that every rise is followed by a fall; an infinite rise would be inconceivable. If we climb a mountain, we reach the top and there, inevitably, we will find the descent. Such are the laws of evolution and devolution, my dear brothers and sisters: evolution reaches a certain point defined completely by nature, and then the devolving processes begin.
Observe what happens in a plant: it is obvious that when the seed germinates, evolution is underway, and as the stem grows, the impulsive, evolutionary force of nature can be appreciated. This evolution continues in the plant, in the vegetable, until it bears fruit, reproduces, etc. Later, through time, it begins its devolving processes and then we see how the leaves wither, until, finally, that plant, so beautiful, becomes a pile of sticks. That is the force of the devolving type.
You see, my dear brothers and sisters, what happens in human’s physicalities: it is obvious that when she is gestating, within the womb there are evolutionary processes . When it is born the creature is evolving. As it goes through the processes of childhood, adolescence, youth, maturity, there are evolutionary processes, but later, the devolving processes follow. Then, we see how the person gradually ages, withering, as if he were a plant in the process of deterioration, and finally, he ages and dies. That is the harsh reality, brothers and sisters.
But to attribute to these laws of evolution and devolution psychological aspects that they does not have is wrong, absurd.
When one reads all the theories about evolution, one realizes how contrived that dogma is. The human mind has deteriorated so much that they no longer know how to see destructive, devolutionary processes on a large scale. Observe current thinkers: they fall into such tremendous absurdities, such as attributing, for example, to the law of evolution, destructive processes of a devolutive type. It is the height of absurdity! Attributing devolutionary processes to evolution? Attribute to evolution degenerative processes, processes of deterioration? But people think they are right: people are totally bottled up in this dogma of evolution!
What we need, my dear brothers and sisters, is to get away from those mechanical laws of nature, to get away from the laws of evolution and devolution. Such laws constitute the mechanical axis of all this machinery that we call “nature”. But if we do not deviate from these two mechanical laws, we will continue to be stuck within samsara, that is, within this tragic wheel of lives and deaths.
We need to get on the path of the revolution of the consciousness; this path deviates from the laws of evolution and devolution.
The path of the revolution of the consciousness has already been taught by the divine master:
“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” – Matthew 7: 14
Yes, the path that leads us to the light is strait, narrow and difficult, and few there be that find it...
Jesus did not say that there were three paths, nor five, nor seven, nor twelve, as many think.
Jesus spoke to us of a unique way: " strait, narrow and terrifyingly difficult"...
The great kabir Jesus did not promise the kingdom to everyone either. If we carefully study the four gospels, we can see how the master emphasizes the difficulty of entering the kingdom. It is written:
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” – Matthew 22: 14
But regarding "the chosen", everyone feels "chosen". The Protestants believe that they are "chosen", the Catholics suppose that they are the ones, and each one, by the fact of being affiliated to this or that sect, to this or that religion, supposes to be "chosen".
No, my dear brothers and sisters! We must be a little more mature in thinking. To be "chosen", we must reach the second birth, that second birth that Nicodemus spoke to us about and that Jesus also spoke to us about. Remember, my dear brothers and sisters, what is written in the sacred writings:
There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?” – John 3: 1-12
“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”
That is, if one does not reach the second birth, he cannot enter the kingdom either. The important thing is to reach that second birth. You don't arrive with mere theories, nor on the basis of mere intellectual beliefs. Something more is needed...
Nature speaks for itself. Let's see the plants, let's see all the creatures: birth is something perfectly natural, and the second birth is based on the same forces of nature.
Many times we have spoken extensively about what the three factors of the revolution of the consciousness are.
- Die: yes, it is necessary to die! The ego, the myself, the self-willed, the ego must die.
- To be born: it is obvious that it is necessary to be born; The solar bodies must be born in us, because only in this way can we incarnate the being.
- Sacrifice for humanity is love. We must sacrifice ourselves for all the millions of beings that populate the world.
Those, then, are the three factors of the revolution of the consciousness.
Jesus synthesizes them by saying:
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me...” – Matthew 16: 24
Denying oneself means dissolving the ego, the I, the myself.
Taking the cross, taking it on our shoulders, means working in the forge of the Cyclopes, in the ninth sphere, because the cross is eminently phallic.
Following Christ is love, sacrifice for our fellow people.
We need to work intensively with the three factors; Only in this way is it possible to reach the intimate self-realization of the Being. But people believe that only through evolution we reach that self-realization. That is precisely where the wrong thing is, because self-realization cannot be the product of a mechanism, even if it is of an evolutionary type.
If this great mechanics of nature, evolving, could take us to the final liberation, well, it would be as much as believing that God is a tyrant; because that of having one to go by force where he does not want to go; well, it is absurd. There are millions who do not want to go, not even to heaven itself. Why should they be taken by force? Many people, for example, do not want esoteric teachings, why does someone have to give them to them by force?
It is necessary to change, but why should people have to change "by force"? If evolutionary mechanics change people by force, then God is a tyrant. But that is absurd: God is not a tyrant! God gives each one freedom to follow the path they want, enslaves no one, respects the free will of each one.
Many believe that, for example, through innumerable "reincarnations", one reaches perfection, but that is false. People no longer know how to distinguish between reincarnation and return.
Reincarnation was explained in India by Lord Krishna (who, as is known, lived about a thousand years before Jesus). But Krishna did not say that all human beings will be reincarnated. Krishna taught that only the gods, the devas, the demigods, the titans, etc., are called to reincarnate. This will seem strange to many, but it is so: to reincarnate, first of all, a defined individuality is required, and humanoids do not have a defined individuality; if we look at them carefully, they are full of terrible contradictions.
Each one knows that they carry many contradictions within themselves, and tries to correct them, naturally, with apologies. But, if we could see ourselves as we are, in a full-length mirror, we would be filled with shame when contemplating our intimate contradictions. The reason, the cause of these, lies precisely in the multiplicity of the “I”.
Within each of the cylinders of our organic machine, we have different “I’s.”
For example, the I of the intellect says: “I am going to study for a while”; but the ego of movement enters into a fight and says: “no!, I feel like walking a little”, and then, as a third party in dispute, for example, the ego of hunger, gluttony or stomach (as you wish) arises. call him), and says: “no!, I prefer to eat”... You see how many contradictions we have! Now, there are innumerable defects that we have, and each one of them is personified by an “I”. So, we don't have a true individuality; These “I’s” do not keep agreement with each other: they quarrel, they dispute, they do not have a defined order.
When one of them comes to dominate all the others, it controls the brain and controls the capital centers of the organic machine, and then we see that the individual becomes passionate about an idea, or about a person of the opposite sex, etc. But when such an “I” is again displaced, then we see how the one who had sworn eternal love or loyalty to a cause, withdraws, leaving, of course, all the others, all the people, well, perplexed, astonished, confused. ...
The human body, then, is a machine controlled by multiple selves. It would be absurd to suppose that these multiple selves reincarnate. When the hour of death arrives, what continues beyond the pantheon is a legion of demons, yes, demon-I's that personify our mistakes.
After a certain time, those devil-I's return, they return, they reincorporate into a new organism, that's all. Upon reincorporation, they repeat exactly all the actions of their previous lives; that is the law of eternal recurrence.
Thus, the laws of return and recurrence govern all mankind. How can one speak of reincarnation in this sense? Reincarnation is for individuals who no longer have an ego, who no longer have those selves, for individuals who are pure spirit, for sacred individuals.
It is that the word reincarnation says so, my dear brothers and sisters; “incarnation”, we already know what “incarnation” is: the descent of the divinity to a human, and “reincarnation”, that is, it means the repetition of that descent to a new human organism. That is basically the doctrine.
The bad thing is that in the Western world, this doctrine of reincarnation was distorted and confused with the law of eternal return. Distinguish between reincarnation and return! All of you return. It cannot be said that you reincarnate yet, because you are not sacred individuals; that's clear. If you want to reincarnate, you need to die from moment to moment.
Death of Psychological Defects
Only by eliminating that ego will you be able to say that you reincarnate.
As the ego is being eliminated, extraordinary processes are formed in us.
First of all, it is necessary that you know that the essence, the psychic material, is an emanation, let's say, of the universal soul in us (I synthesize in this way so that you can understand me). That essence is bottled up, it is bottled between all those multiple devil-I's that we have inside. As such selves are being annihilated, the essence is going to free itself.
For example: if we have a perfume placed among many bottles, it is obvious that as we destroy those bottles, the perfume is emancipating, liberating. This is what happens with the consciousness, with the essence bottled up within the “I’s”: as each “I” disintegrates, the essence is liberated, and as it is liberated, it takes on a defined form.
The first thing that begins to establish itself in us is the famous seminal pearl that the Tao tells us about. Later, through time, the seminal pearl transforms into the golden embryo, and this golden embryo develops more and more and more, as the devil-I’s are being destroyed, annihilated, disintegrated.
The golden embryo comes to establish, let's say, a complete balance in us, between the spiritual and the material. The golden embryo gives us a defined individuality.
When the entire pluralized “I” has been turned into dust, what remains in us is the golden embryo, the awakened, illuminated, resplendent consciousness. Such a consciousness can move freely through the infinite space.
When the consciousness awakens, we no longer have a problem in astral projection, we can enter and leave the physical body at will, whenever we want; we can move in all the infinite space.
The important thing is, then, my dear brothers and sisters, that in this work of "dying", you know how to reduce the ego to ashes. It is convenient to learn to manage the creative energy.
Remember that in the Gnostic mysteries the chalice and the spear always appear. The spear represents precisely the masculine virile force, the chalice represents the feminine yoni. You have to learn to handle the spear and the chalice, the masculine force and the feminine force.
The great sages of antiquity took advantage of the sahaja maithuna to annihilate the devil-I’s, to reduce them to ashes, to turn them into dust. There is always talk of metaphysical intercourse, of chemical intercourse..., and it is that during the sahaja maithuna, at the supreme moment, the divine mother kundalini can be begged to use the spear, that is, the sexual force, to reduce to ashes, to dust, to those devil-I’s that control the human organism; and it is obvious that with the power of the lance, those devil-I’s disintegrate very quickly.
And as they disintegrate, the seminal pearl is also established within our being, which later, as I have already told you, becomes the golden flower or the golden embryo. That is the mystery of the golden flower. You have to understand all this thoroughly...
As for people who do not have a spouse (whether they are women or men), in any case, they should try to comprehend the error that they are going to eliminate, and once, well comprehended, thoroughly, profoundly, then they beg the kundalini mother to eliminate the “I” that personifies such a psychological error.
The difference between single and married is that the latter, as they have the force of the spear, can destroy those devil-I’s more quickly; that is all.
Now, singles can destroy devil-I’s, asking the mother kundalini to remove the error that has been thoroughly comprehended. But when it comes to destroying, for example, the three traitors, or going further, to eliminate, for example, the dragon of darkness, or many other evil subjective elements that the human being carries in his infraconscious depths, well, the power of the spear is indispensably needed during the sahaja maithuna.
So, my dear brothers and sisters, you have to understand this, you have to understand it deeply.
When the consciousness is completely liberated, when it is "naked" in front of the great reality, then we can see, hear, touch and feel the great realities of the superior worlds.
We become competent researchers of life in the higher worlds.
The process of dying, then, is quite profound, my dear brothers and sisters.
Now, regarding the process of birth, it is obvious that one has to work with the hydrogens, that is if it is already a matter of the sahaja maithuna.
By means of a special shock (as I have already explained so many times), the sexual hydrogen is passed to a second octave of higher type; This second octave resonates with the notes do, re, mi, fa, do, la, si, and crystallizes, after having saturated the cells, in the splendid and marvelous form of the astral body.
And when the sexual hydrogen is made to pass to a superior third octave, then the mental body is manufactured. That such hydrogen is processed with the notes do, re, mi, fa, do, la, si, is a fact. The mental body is extraordinary, wonderful...
When the sexual hydrogen is raised to a fourth octave of a higher type, then it comes to crystallize (with the seven musical notes) in the resplendent form of the causal body. At this point we can already embody what is called "human or causal soul" (the third aspect of the atman-buddhi-manas triad). So, we have a human with a soul, a real human, a legitimate human, a true human.
But at this point it is not reached, my dear brothers and sisters, through simple beliefs or dogmas, or through evolutionary processes. Really, it is only by working with the three factors of the revolution of the consciousness, that it is possible to tread this path, which will lead us to the final liberation. It is necessary to comprehend this thoroughly, deeply. For today, my dear brothers, content yourself with what we have discussed, meditate deeply...
Questions and Answers
If any of you have something to ask, you can do so with complete freedom...
Student: Venerable master, recently, I read something related to the wheel of samsara and in this exposition (which was made of said karmic law), it was said that the soul passed through different stages in each return: starting with Aries in a return, following successively for all zodiac signs. Of course, you can go around these same signs several times, but they were processed in that way: in a progressive way. The curious thing about the case is that the types of souls that go through these different stages were analyzed there; and the curious thing is that those analyzes that are done do coincide with the analyzed personality. I say master, what could you tell us about it?
Samael Aun Weor: With the greatest pleasure I will answer the question, my estimable brother. It is obvious that human beings are born under one or another zodiacal sign; everything depends on the law of individual karma, in this there are no concrete plans as the author to whom you allude believes. It is essentially a karmic issue and nothing more. When the initiate frees himself from the law of recurrence (a law that, in parentheses, forces us over and over again to repeat the same events of the previous life in each life), then we can choose our zodiacal sign at will.
Hindustani wisdom tells us about the twelve nidanas, that is, the twelve causes of existence. These twelve causes are related precisely to the twelve zodiacal signs. In the superior worlds there is the temple of the zodiac. In this temple there are twelve sanctuaries. And when the initiate wants to take a body and incarnate (because he does reincarnate), he enters the desired sanctuary. Some wish to reincarnate under the constellation of Leo, for example, others under the constellation of Aquarius or Pisces or Aries etc.
In any case, when the initiate wants to take a body, to reincarnate, he enters any of the twelve zodiacal signs at will, he waits there until the masters of karma come; They will then be in charge of making the connection of the silver cord with that zoosperm that has to go to a womb. But, pay attention: certainly, the awakened and cognizant initiate can choose his zodiacal sign at will.
That is what I have to say to you, my dear brothers and sisters, regarding the question of the zodiac. It is good that you eliminate this dogma of evolution from your minds, because that dogma leads you into error.
Student: Thank you, master. Can I ask another question, master?
Samael Aun Weor: Of course!
Student: Certainly, master, the assertion that "in each incarnation we come to repeat exactly the same facts, carried out in the previous one" has been the cause of a small concern of ours. That is to say, in each return we come to repeat what we have already done before. I mean, it worries me a bit, that statement seems a bit excessive to me, it seems to me that there must be some small variations, at least...
Samael Aun Weor: Well, brother, in life there is everything: there are exact repetitions and small variations, as you say. As one awakens consciousness one also becomes independent of that law of repetitions, and when one has fully awakened, one no longer has anything to do with the law of recurrence, one frees oneself!
But there are in some parts of the world, people of exact repetition even in the smallest details: people who are always born in the same town, always marry at the same age, organize their economic life in the same way, etc. These people usually appear as if they were prophetic, for example they say: “when I am 20 years old I will have a business in such and such a way; when I am 40, I will have so many children and my life will be this and this and this way”... And later, one can verify that, exactly, the prophecies of those people have been fulfilled. So, if you don't have enough comprehension, you come to think that these people are intuitive or prophetic or something like that. But it is nothing like that: what happens is that these people, as they always repeat the same thing, already know their role by heart; that is all.
The interesting thing is that we become independent from the law of recurrence, that we become truly free, and that is why it is necessary, my dear brothers and sisters, to dissolve the ego, because only by dissolving the ego do we awaken the consciousness and only by awakening the consciousness do we become independent, we free ourselves. of the law of recurrence. Understood?
Student: Master, I would like to ask a question: when the solar bodies are manufactured and the consciousness is not awakened (because as you have said, solar bodies can be manufactured without having totally eliminated the subjective elements of perceptions, that is, the devil-I’s), in that case, what happens?
Samael Aun Weor: Well, my dear brother, there is no doubt that there are people who manufacture the solar bodies, and yet they do not dissolve the ego. By not dissolving the ego, they also do not awaken their consciousness in the objective, perfect way. It is clear that those people become hasnamussen with a double center of gravity, cosmic failures.
That is why the work must be complete: it is necessary to eliminate the ego and manufacture the solar bodies. With the same sexual force with which the solar bodies are manufactured, the ego can also be destroyed. Whoever learns to handle the spear, that is, the force of eros, can, with such erotic power, reduce the animal ego to ashes.
But what matters is that during chemical or metaphysical intercourse (whatever we want to call it), all sexual intercourse is directed inwards and upwards, towards the divinity, towards the divine mother kundalini. In those moments, the sacred mother is begged to be asked to grasp the spear of eros, so that with that prodigious force she reduces to ashes the “I” that we have comprehended, that we have understood, and that is how we are dying, little by little. Once death is achieved, then comes the complete awakening of the consciousness.
It is absurd to satisfy ourselves with only manufacturing the solar bodies and not dying. There is a need to manufacture the solar bodies and destroy the ego. Only in this way is the work complete, otherwise, one exposes oneself, my dear brothers and sisters, to a cosmic failure.
You know how horrible a hasnamuss is. A hasnamuss has a double center of gravity, they are two entities: on the one hand the ego (diabolical, terrible and perverse), and on the other hand the secret master, dressed in the solar bodies; a white and a black master; a double center of gravity. Behold a hanasmuss is an abortion of the cosmic mother! I don't want you to fail, comprehend thoroughly what you have to do...
Student: Master, I wanted (if there is still a bit of tape recording left for our brothers and sisters) that you could inform them (of something that is exclusive, ours, that we are close to contact with the master), and it is that thing, that in relation to the talk tonight, you, on other occasions, have spoken to us. That is, what the entire student body knows, something related to the 108 lives that are assigned to every human being. But what the student body doesn't know (because it hasn't been written yet) is that talk you told us about the 3,000 opportunities that are given to us.
Of course, this is a very long thing, but I would ask you, master, that in some way, we could give these brothers the privilege of hearing your voice, directly, on this subject, which they still do not know...
Samael Aun Weor: With the greatest pleasure, my dear brother, I am going to answer your question; or better to say, I am going to give an explanation on the subject that you propose.
Every divine monad is given 3,000 opportunities, that is, for every divine monad there are 3,000 cycles (don't confuse “cycles” with “centuries”, which is different).
When I speak of 3,000 cycles or aeons of time, you must know how to understand...
Each cycle of those includes, not only the evolutions through the mineral, the vegetable and the animal, but also, in addition, 108 humanoid lives that are assigned to the essence, to the consciousness.
It is obvious that if those 108 lives are not properly used, failure follows. Then the essence, the consciousness, rushes down the devolutionary path, enters the infernal worlds: it goes back in time passing through animalic, vegetaloid and mineraloid processes.
When it reaches the state, then, "fossil" or mineraloid, the devil-I’s are reduced, that is, the ego, to cosmic dust; and when the egos or devil-I’s, inside the interior of the earth, are reduced to cosmic dust, the essence comes out again into the sunlight: naked, clean, pure, to start a new evolutionary cycle that will start from the stone, will ascend to the vegetable, to the animal and finally, it will reconquer the human state that it once lost.
Upon entering the new humanoid state again, you are assigned the same as before, 108 lives, if you use them, wonderful! And if you don't use them, the process repeats itself.
Thus, 3,000 cycles of these are given to every divine monad for its intimate self-realization. But if the monad does not know how to use the 3,000 cycles, that is, if it fails, the opportunities are closed to it and then it absorbs its essence, its consciousness, and penetrates the bosom of the universal spirit of life forever.
That monad will enjoy happiness like any other monad, but it will not be a monad-master, it will have failed in her attempts to achieve mastery. That is the harsh reality of things, my dear brothers and sisters, and I want you to understand...
Now, you don't know what a monad is, I hope you understand. The monad is not the Atman, buddhi and manas that theosophy speaks of; the monad is more inside: it is (Kether) the ancient of days and within the ancient of days is, well, the Christ and the sexual force, which is the holy spirit, that is the monad! She has to send the essence to take body, form, in short, to the laboratory of nature, in order to transform into a soul, to become an awakened consciousness.
When the human being triumphs, that is, when the consciousness is self-realized, he frees himself from the mind by absorbing himself in Atman, the ineffable, and much later, he absorbs himself in the ancient of days; then the ancient of days is self-realized, he is a self-realized monad.
And much later she is absorbed in Isvara, that ray from which the ancient of days emanated; then Iswara, with awareness, becomes a logos. When one becomes a logos one is freed from the solar system, and when one is freed from the solar system, one has the right to live in the worlds of paramapada (परमपद), while the deep cosmic night arrives.
When the cosmic night arrives, when the night of the great pralaya arrives, the monad is absorbed in the absolute abstract space and there, such monad will live for seven eternities in an inconceivable happiness, beyond all...
Later, in the future mahamanvantara, it is obvious that the monad will have to re-enter a new activity, for cycles or transcendental ages of the spirit of a higher order, about which I will speak later, because this is not the moment yet, indicated.
Student: Master, and that you are so kind, would you like to clarify the concepts for us? You have just mentioned that "the monad sends the essence to become a soul" and we have heard the following concepts: that "you are Spirit, and you have a soul"... Of course, according to what we heard, we think that both one and the other are essential, indispensable for the monad. I would like to expand a little more on the difference between spirit and soul, master?
Samael Aun Weor: With the greatest pleasure, my dear brother. In any case, I have spoken in summary, but if you want, I will detail it, then; I didn't intend to detail, I thought to speak in synthesis... ...exhausting a little. But, I'm going to try to detail what you want me to detail...
It is clear that the ancient of days, then, emanates from himself what we could say the spirit, the atman-buddhi-manas, and even so, I am synthesizing: Atman, in fact, is the spirit-being; buddhi is the spirit soul and higher manas is the human soul. That is to say, the innermost, Atman, emanates from the ancient of days, but the innermost has two souls: a spiritual one, which is buddhi and is feminine; and a masculine one, which is the human soul.
Of course, from the latter, that is, from the human soul, the essence becomes. The essence is unfortunately bottled or bottled up among all the devil-I’s that every humanoid carries within.
But if the human being destroys all those devil-I’s , the essence is freed, it becomes, therefore, the golden embryo; and that golden embryo, later, merges with the human soul. Thus we become humans with souls.
That embryo has the power to transform the human soul and make it a master-soul. And many later, when we incarnate the buddhi, the golden embryo also transforms the buddhi, that is, the spiritual soul and turns it into a master-soul and turns the Atman itself into a master.
And when the golden embryo is absorbed within the monad, that is, within the ancient of days, the ancient of days self-realizes. And when the monad goes further, deeper, and is absorbed in the ray that emanates from the universal spirit of life, that is, in Isvara or the interior logoi, then we become logos, solar logos; and that is the purpose of our solar system.
Only through a complete revolution of the consciousness can we become logos.
When the logos is reached, one is freed from the solar system. Whoever frees himself from the solar system has the right to enter the absolute.
But, in a future cosmic day one will have to come back to this galaxy again to fight, in order to become independent from the galaxy, and then one will be absorbed into the absolute. And for the third time one will have to return, much later, to free oneself from the infinite itself; then it will be absorbed after that in the absolute forever, becoming paramarthasatya, that is, a god with christified consciousness, an ineffable, a creature of unspeakable splendors, within the absolute abstract immeasurable space; That's all, have you understood me, my dear brothers and sisters?
Student: Wonderful master! Of course, we understand that a purpose of the consciousness exists for the monad, by sending its essence to what you have called "laboratory".
We come to understand that it is necessary, precisely, that process, to descend to this "plane" to learn, to acquire experiences, to acquire consciousness, so that when we ascend again to our superior entities (so to speak), they in turn become in soul-masters as you has just told us.
And it is also surprising to learn that within those 3,000 opportunities that are given to the monad, there may be monads that return to the absolute having failed. Yes, then, Master, we would like you to explain to us, if possible, a little more, the purpose of that plan.
Samael Aun Weor: With the greatest pleasure, my dear brother. In any case, then, the monads that can fail in 3,000 cosmic cycles are certainly rare, but it is not impossible that some fail. What does it matter in the ocean of the universal spirit of life, one resplendent wave more or one resplendent wave less? Simply, it is a wave that did not achieve self-realization and that is all.
Student: Such a wave is not going to enter the absolute, as you have just told me, because that is for Paramarthasatyas. Such a wave will live within the ocean of the universal spirit of life; and that's it.
Samael Aun Weor: It is clear that at the end of the mahamanvantara, such a wave enters with all the waves into the eternal, unconditioned abstract space of the unmanifested Sat. But it is also very true that when the dawn arrives, that wave comes out with all the waves; it is a bubble in the ocean that necessarily has to come out of the absolute. It could not stay in the absolute; only the self-realized waves of light can remain in the absolute, the logos that possess a christified, self-realized consciousness (which is ultimately the effort that all logos are making).
I want you to know that deep within each of us there is an inner logoi that aspires to consciousness. The logoi that manages to have consciousness becomes self-realized logos and all self-realized logos have the right to become Paramarthasatyas, that is, an inhabitant of the absolute, do you understand me?
Does any other brother or sister has something to ask? No brother nor sister? Let us then end here for now.
An Instructor's Elaboration on the Lecture
Quotes from scriptures of kabbalah with commentary by a gnostic instructor, as an elaboration on the lecture by Samael Aun Weor.
'Elah' אֵלֶּה (goddess) generations (Toledoth תולדות) of the heavens and the earth by Abraham. The word ‘behibaram בהבראם' (when they were created) is an anagram of BeAbraham (by Abraham).” – Genesis 2: 4
From the waters, HaMayim המים of the Ain Soph אין סוף, the boundless ether, “The holy one (Ain אין) took Mi מי (who) and joined it to 'Elah' אֵלֶּה (goddess) and formed Elohim אלהים. Thereafter, Ain אין took Hem הם (they, the 13 attributes of mercy, the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים, living souls of Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים, Binah בינה), and joining ‘they’ (Hem הם) to Abr אבר, formed Abraham אברהם. These 13 archetypes are in 1+3 = 4, the Tetragrammaton יהוה.
These 13 archetypes of the Tetragrammaton יהוה, are also included and summarized in the letters of the name Abraham אברהם, written in full.
“These are the generations of Noah נח. Noah נח was a righteous man and perfect in his generations, and Noah נח walked with Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים (Ath, the sea goddess). And Noah נח begat three sons (with Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים, Ath, the sea goddess), Ath Shem את־שם (astral solar body), Ath Ham את־חם (mental solar body), and Ath Japheth ואת־יפת (causal solar body).” Genesis 6: 9, 10
Noah נח represents the ark of the covenant in Malkuth (our physicality), because the name Noah נח is written with a letter נ Nun 50 and a letter ח Chet 8 = 13. So, Noah נח has the 13 attributes of mercy, the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים, living souls of Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים and of Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים, Binah בינה in potentiality. Likewise, 13 relates to Jesus Christ and his 12 apostles, who will be born in us from Mary מרים, Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים, Stella Maris, the virgin of the sea) in Mitzarim מצרים Egypt, Malkuth, our physicality. This is how we, gnostics, see it kabbalistically and alchemically.
“And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name (Shem שם) written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.” – Revelation 2: 12-17
Samael Aun Weor stated:
“This new name (Shem שם) is the name (HaShem השם) of our internal God; this is the name of the Son of Man. The virtues that are necessary in order to open the church of Pergamos are the following: chastity, loyalty, faith, and obedience to the Father.
The initiate cannot be a glutton, drunkard, or fornicator. The Nicolaitans develop tenebrous magical powers through fornication.
The initiate must be temperate, faithful, chaste, humble, and obedient.” – Samael Aun Weor
“Thou shalt not take Ath (our Schekinah’s) name את־שם of יהוה thy Elohim אלהים (Binah בינה) in vain: for the Iod י of Havah Ath Asher הוה את אשר (in Malkuth) will not hold him guiltless that taketh his Ath Shamu את-שמו her name in vain.” – Deuteronomy 5: 11
Samael Aun Weor explains:
“To pray is to talk with God, and I, in secrecy, prayed to the Eternal Feminine, to God as Mother. Then, I knew that each creature has his own particular Divine Mother, and I even knew the secret name of my own.” – The Magic of the Runes by Samael Aun Weor
The Divine Mother is Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה, Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים (Ath, the sea goddess), that develops Shem שם, Hod, the astral solar body, within the Vav ו, the spine, of every initiate who knows the secret of the ark (tebah תבה) of the covenant, which is the same ark of Noah נח.
When initiates build their Shem שם, Hod, the astral solar body, they then receive for the first time, in the temple of Pergamos, the name (HaShem השם), the secret name of their own monad. This name relates to their own androgynous God and must be kept in secret. Unless their own God commands them to reveal it for a special mission as the example of the Master Samael Aun Weor, otherwise it will be as to take the name in vain. So, our own particular Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים has its own name within us. Thereafter the name is confirmed when they, the confirmands, are born in HaShemim השמים, the heavens of the Devachan as Ham (mental solar body), and Japheth (causal solar body) in HaShemim השמים, the heavens of Tiphereth, the causal world.
This is why the first son of Noah נח was name Shem שם and symbolizes Hod, the astral solar body. From Shem שם derives the Shemim שמיים or Semites, who were initiates born in HaShemim השמים, the heavens of Yetzirah, better said, VaYitzer וייצר from Genesis 2: 7.
“The esoteric doctrine of the two Iods in the word VaYitzer וייצר is this: They denote and symbolize two separate creations, one from goodness (Chesed, upside right pillar), the other from badness (Malkuth, downside left pillar); one of life, the other of death; of things commanded and things forbidden, and are alluded to in the words, "And (in the central pillar) Jehovah Elohim formed (VaYitzer Jehovah Elohim וייצר יהוה אלהים) Ath HaAdam את־האדם out of dust from the earth and breathed into his nostrils the soul the breath of life," the divine (Ath את) Schekinah (שכינה). Ath HaAdam את־האדם is a threefold product of life (Chaiah חיה), spirit (Abraham or Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים, Chesed in Genesis 2: 4), and living souls (Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים), by the blending and union of which HaAdam האדם became a living soul (Nephesh Chaiah נפש חיה), a manifestation of the Divine (Binah בינה).” - Zohar
So, these are the generations of Noah נח and Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים (Ath, the sea goddess), the Shemim שמיים or Semites, the sons of the Nun נון and the Chet חת of Noah נח, who originated the Aryan Root Race in the Golden Age or Satya Yuga in Yesod, sex.
Observe the spelling of the name Noah נח Nun נון and Chet חת. Nun נון is: nun-vav-final nun. The common Nun נ is bent and the final Nun ן is straight. Why? Because the bent Nun נ represents both male and female semen or brute mercury, and the straight Nun ן represents both male and female souls of mercury, which most rise along the Vav ו, and Zain ז, the spine of both, husband and wife respectively; thus, forming the letter Chet חת and Tav ת or sexual cross. Therefore, נח Noah’s generations are 'Eleh' אֵלֶּה (these), the generations of 'Elah' אֵלֶּה (goddess), the generations of Cheth חת.
The shape of the letter Tav ת is formed by the letter Resh ר at its left and letter Nun נ at it right. Tav spells תו; this alchemically indicates that we, in the sexual act, have to transmute the two Nun נון (fish, male and female sperm) into energy and to rise it along the Vav ו, our spine, towards our head, Rosh ר, of Kether, in the pineal gland ruled by Neptune, Binah בינה, El-Ha-Yam אל-הים (the sea God of Yesod).
“And Abraham rose up and bowed himself to the people of the land, to the sons of Cheth חת.” - Genesis 23: 7
The Ark of Noah נח התבה
"And the ark rested (ות-נח התבה) on (Zain זין, Yesod) the seventh month, on (Peh פה, Daath) the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat אררט (the head)." - Genesis 8: 4
“God is my help” Eleazar said: "Wherever in scripture the word 'Elah' אֵלֶּה (goddess or these) occurs there is an antithesis of some kind between what precedes and what follows it. For instance:
“And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted and became into four heads.” – Genesis 2: 10
Samael Aun Weor stated:
“The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.” - Genesis 2: 11, 12
The land of Havilah is (Malkuth) our own physical body, and the gold of this land is the solar atoms from our seminal system—that is to say, the semen’s potable gold.
“And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.” - Genesis 2: 13
This second river is the cerebrospinal fluid, which is the other pole of our seminal system. With it we encompass the whole land of Ethiopia—that is to say, the whole of our head and throat, since we form the brain and throat with the cerebrospinal fluid.
“And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.” - Genesis 2: 14
The river that goes toward the east of Assyria and the river Euphrates are the two poles of the woman’s seminal system. Therefore, the woman is towards the east of us, because she is the door of Paradise, and this door is always towards the east." - Samael Aun Weor
“All the rivers run into (the sea god אל־הים and the sea goddess Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים in Yesod, the genitalia or Vav-Hei וה); yet the sea is not full; unto the place (which is Iod-Hei יה in Daath) from whence the rivers come, thither they return again (through transmutation).” – Ecclesiastes 1: 7
The Zohar continues:
This said river that went out of (Iod-Hei יה in Daath) Eden and entered into paradise (Yesod-Malkuth or Vav-Hei וה), brought into the waters HaMayim המים of celestial origin, that which gave life to the plants (virtues) and flowers (lotus flowers पद्म पुष्प, churches or chakras) which grew therein and which only ceased on the completion of creation when, as it is written:
“And on (the male female waters of Vav-Hei וה in Malkuth, male female physicalities) the seventh day Elohim אלהים fulfilled his work which he had made; and he satisfied השביעי on (the male female waters of Vav-Hei וה) the seventh day (Malkuth, male female physicalities) from all his work which he had made.” – Genesis 2: 2
“Herein consists the mystery of the word 'Elah' אֵלֶּה (goddess, the queen, Malkah מלכה) and 'Eleh' אֵלֶּה (these generations), occurring in the verse:
“These (Eleh אֵלֶּה) are the generations of Noah נח. Noah was a righteous man and perfect in his generations, and Noah נח walked with Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים (Ath, the sea goddess).
And Noah נח begat (with Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים, Ath, the sea goddess, these, Eleh אֵלֶּה) three sons, Ath Shem את־שם (astral solar body), Ath Ham את־חם (mental solar body), and Ath Japheth ואת־יפת (causal solar body).” Genesis 6: 9, 10
Mark an antithesis between the generation of Noah נח and those preceding him, namely, the generations of Adam אדם, or in other words, the generation of Noah נח comes between the manifestation and development of life (Chaiah חיה, Binah בינה and Elah-Yam אלה-ים, the sea goddess) on the celestial and earthly planes of existence.
Noah נח symbolized humanity beginning its earth career and for this reason it is said:
“Noah the male fire of the ground (Noah Eish Ha-Adamah נח איש האדמה).” - Genesis 9: 20
The biblical account of Noah נח and the deluge contains a deep mystery that explains why it was necessary that Noah נח should enter the ark (tebah תבה). It was in order to keep seed (human race) alive upon the face of all the earth (Genesis 7: 3). If so, of what then was the ark (tebah תבה) a symbol?
The ark (tebah תבה) of the covenant (the good law of scientific chastity) by which celestial or Adamic humanity was kept and preserved and without which it could not have entered upon its mundane career of existence and progression; that is, without the continuance of the good law in the world, the higher self (Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים, Chaiah חיה, Binah בינה) could not have operated in the progressive development of the lower self (in Malkuth), which therefore would have perished (through the second death) and reverted back to its pre-evolutionary or elemental state.
Ere present humanity began evolving on the earth, the Holy One entered into a covenant with the Higher Self (Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים, Chaiah חיה, Binah בינה), as it is written:
“And יהוה said unto Noah נח, come thou and all thy house into the ark (of the covenant); for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.” – Genesis 7: 1
Scripture states: "These are the generations of Noah נח: Noah נח was a righteous man איש צדיק and perfect in. his generations. And Noah walked with Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים" (Genesis 6: 9)
Why its written Noah נח: Noah נח?
Because, each and every righteous man איש צדיק in the world is righteous twice. One who is righteous in this world, while the other is righteous in the world of Adam Kadmon אדם קדמון, who is described as follows:
“As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked (fornicator) no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation (sex, Yesod יסוד).” – Proverb 10: 25
Both alike have the same appellation are 'righteous,' the one in the celestial world, the other in the terrestrial world. This occult mystery is contained in the words:
“Noah נח walked with Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים” - Genesis 6: 9
That is to say, that Noah נח and Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים (the sea goddess schekinah) were never disjoined or separated, one being the reflection of the other on the earth plane, and therefore it is written:
“Noah נח found grace in the eyes of יהוה (Binah בינה). (Genesis 6: 8).
Noah נח, moreover, is said to have been 'a just man and perfect in his generations' (bedorothiv בדרתיו). The word 'perfect' (thamim תמים) here denotes that he was born circumcised (better said, chaste when using the Tav ת or sexual cross), and was also the source of perfection not only to his generation but also to his future posterity. This being so, it appears that Noah נח from the time of creation was predestined to enter and be incorporated within the ark (of the covenant), and also that previous to this event, humanity was not in a perfect state or condition, and only after his abode in the ark (of the covenant) as it is written:
“These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread (in the satya yuga).” – Genesis 9: 19
The word 'overspread' נפצה (naphzah) here has the same meaning 'ipared' יפרד (divided itself), as in Genesis 2: 10 'and a river went out of Eden to water the garden and from thence it was parted, that is, became divided into four heads.' In the work of creation it was at the moment of this dividing that the fertilizing and fructifying principle from on high entered into the world and made the earth fruitful as it does on the celestial plane, and therefore scripture states that 'Elah אלה,' (better said, Elah-Yam אלה-ים, the sea goddess) this (Schekinah שכינה or female) principle of life, descended into Noah נח in order that through him the human race might appear and be perpetuated on the earth plane."
After Rabbi Eleazar had ceased speaking, Rabbi Abba went and embraced him, saying: "Oh lion! that breaks rocks and dashed them to pieces. Truly hast thou exposited the occult signification of the ark.
Rabbi Eleazar, continuing his discourse, said furthermore: It is written:
“And he called his name Noah את־שמו נח, saying this shalt comfort us concerning the work and toil of our hands (ידי Iodi, the two Iods of VaYitzer וייצר).” – Genesis 5: 29
Here the word 'Ath את' is found before 'shemu' (his name Noah) את־שמו נח. That is not so in the words 'And he called him Jacob (שמך יעקב).' What is the reason of this commission?
It is because Noah נח (in Malkuth is נ Nun 50 and ח Chet 8 = 13) and Jacob (in Tiphereth represent the 13 attributes of mercy, the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים, living souls of Israel (את־שמו ישראל his name israel), since, when the letters of the name Israel ישראל written in full are summarised, they also give the number 13).
So, they (Noah and Jacob) symbolize two different divine principles of operation. Thus, in vision Isaiah says,
“I saw the (Ath את) Lord' את־אדני” – Isaiah 6: 1
The prophet using 'Ath את' to intimate that he beheld both the Schekinah שכינה and the Lord together. So is it also found with the name of Noah, teaching us that he was named by the Holy One and Schekinah שכינה together, whilst Jacob, another patriarch symbolizing a lower state of existence, received his name from the Holy One only."
"These are the generations of Noah (and the Schekinah שכינה): Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with Ath HaElah-Yam את־האלה-ים.” – Genesis 6: 9
Rabbi Jehudah said:
“A good man is gracious and lendeth (to the poor); he will guide his affairs with prudence” – Psalm 112: 5
The term 'good man' designates the Holy One, and therefore is it written:
“Good is Jehovah טוב־יהוה to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.” – Psalm 145: 9
Jehovah יהוה is a man of war: Jehovah יהוה is his name.,' Exodus 15:3, for he alone gives light and nourishment to this lower world and guides it with judgment, as it is said:
“Righteousness and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.” – Psalm 89: 14
Furthermore, the Just One or the ideal man is also designated as 'a good man,' and so it is written:
“Say to the righteous, that it shall be well with them: for they shall eat the fruit of their labors” – Isaiah 3: 10
Rabbi Joseph said: "This verse refers to Noah נח, as it is expressly said of him ' Noah נח was a righteous man.'"
Rabbi Isaac said: "I think the words are an eulogy of the Sabbath (Malkuth), in the honor of which the Psalmist begins his praise of it by the word 'good.'
“Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.” – Psalm 93: 2
“It is a good thing to give thanks unto יהוה, and to sing praises unto the name of most High (Aelohim, the Absolute).” - Psalm 92: 1" - Zohar
“But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man 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 be.” - Matthew 24: 37-39
