The Aquarian Age and the Purpose of Sex
We are really doing a gigantic task, which is to start the new Aquarian age within the august thunder of thought...
I want you, brothers and sisters, to fully comprehend what the era of the Aquarius is, and that you base yourselves on concrete, practical and definitive facts.
You need to remember February 4, 1962, between 2 and 3 in the afternoon.
At that time, all the telescopes in the world were able to see the great "planetary cosmic congress", with which the era of the Aquarius really began. Then, the planets of our solar system, gathered in a "supreme council" in the constellation of Aquarius, originated this new era that will develop more and more in the future.
These are facts that we cannot ignore and that no serious astronomer failed to observe on that date. I don't know why some people, from this or that organization, point to completely different dates for the beginning of the era of Aquarius. We, the Gnostics, are one hundred percent practical and we like to document our affirmations with concrete, reliable and definitive facts.
The meaning of the new age of the Aquarius is "to know."
If we study this constellation in depth, we will see that it is governed by Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is tremendously explosive and revolutionary in nature; that is why the era of the water bearer will be truly marvelous. Uranus governs the sexual glands, and this is known by any astrologer-scientist.
Undoubtedly, my dear brothers and sisters, the era of the Aquarius is absolutely sexual...
The time has come to comprehend that symbol of the Aquarius, that symbol of the water carrier who tries to mix the red and white elixirs in a pitcher. In the age of the Aquarius we have to learn to handle the waters of life, the “ens-seminis” as Philippus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (Aureolus Paracelsus) wisely said: Remember that "within the ens-seminis, that is, within the entity of the semen, there is all the ens-virtutis of fire."
The Aquarius era is revolutionary and amazing. In this era, all the veils that cover the mysteries of sex will have to be completely removed; In this era, we will have to learn to transmute sexual energy. It is necessary to understand the need for the transmutation and sublimation of the libido.
The age of the Aquarius turns away from vain intellectualism and enters by a different path. Remember, brothers and sisters, that phrase of the divine rabbi of Galilee, written, by the way, in the gospel:
“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” – Matthew 6: 24
Mammon is intellect and money. With the beginning of the age of the Aquarius a total revolution arises against intellectualism and against the riches of mammon.
Since this luminous era began, the Dionysus wave vibrates intensely (throughout nature). The Dionysian wave is extraordinary! Unfortunately, not all of humanity is prepared to know how to positively polarize with the Dionysian wave; most have polarized negatively and fatally.
For your better comprehension, I must remind you that there are currently two international movements that come, we could say, to typify the two aspects of this Dionysian wave. I want to refer, emphatically, to the international, universal Gnostic movement, and to that other (sadly famous) known by the name of the hippie movement.
The positive pole of Dionysus is represented by gnosis, by the Gnostic movement; the negative pole is represented by the hippie movement. The positive pole of the Dionysian wave is transmutation of the genetic libido, sexual sublimation, mystical ecstasy, divine music, renunciation of the vain intellectualism of mammon and the worldly riches (vain and fleeting), of the same tenebrous mammon.
The hippie movement (antithesis of the Gnostic movement), has also been able to renounce the vain intellectualism of mammon and its riches, however, not having been able to polarize positively with the Dionysian wave, it has gone with the negative current: instead of transmuting sexual libido, has preferred the degeneration of sex, vices against nature, prostitution, etc., etc., etc., and instead of meditation (with its "samadhi" and its ineffable "ecstasy"), they have pronounced in favor of drugs (cocaine, morphine, marijuana, etc.) And it is through the latter that they unfortunately penetrate the sublunar regions of nature.
See then, brothers and sisters, those two poles of the Dionysian wave that now vibrates intensely, since the luminous era of the Aquarius began...
It would be an absurd thing to renounce the mysteries of sex; it would be an absurd thing to pronounce ourselves, for example, against sex-yoga with its famous "sahaja maithuna", etc., because in the age of the Aquarius the mysteries of sex must be unveiled, since Ouranos (the first great sexual revealer, the lord of the great Atlantis) governs the aforementioned constellation at this time. It would not be possible to consider ourselves true "revolutionaries of Aquarius" if we made the mistake of repudiating sex-yoga, or if, unfortunately, we continued down the path of animal fornication.
It is necessary to comprehend, my dear brothers and sisters, that we are all children of a man and a woman. If we look for the origin of our existence, if we try to know the roots of our life, we come to discover, deep down, a man, a woman in copulation.
Sex is the origin of life. We are not children of any theory, we are not children of any library, we are not children of this or that institution. Actually, we are children of sex. Obviously, that energy that put us on the table of existence is the only one that can radically transform us.
It is clear that if that energy was capable of giving us life, of creating us, unquestionably it can also transform us and lead us to the intimate self-realization of the Being.
It wasn't theories that created us, it wasn't hypotheses, it wasn't concepts, it wasn't reasoning, but sex. From there we become: from copulation; behold the very root of our life...
What is interesting, then, is knowing these mysteries of sex, learning to handle that subtle energy that gave us life and to recreate ourselves; that is, regenerate ourselves with it, and through it really transform ourselves; that is the vital, the cardinal, the definitive.
If we repudiate the mysteries of sex, we would, in fact, repudiate the holy spirit, the third logos. If we said that "sex is animal", "brutal", "materialistic", etc., etc., etc., we would blaspheme against the holy spirit. Let us remember that sexual energy is the wonderful living expression of the third logos, which creates and always creates anew.
Instead of spitting our slanderous slime into the sanctum sanctorum of the sexual mysteries, we should study them deeply, sincerely.
It is necessary to learn to look at sex with deep veneration, unfortunately, people have a morbid mind and always see sex with the eyes of the devil, they are not capable of perceiving the sanctity of the third logos...
The Holy Grail and Spear
Let's remember the holy grail, the one that once Melchizedek delivered to Abraham. They say that "this patriarch officiated, precisely, in the presence of Melchizedek, with the Holy Grail."
Ancient allegories say that the Holy Grail "was in Noah's ark"; some affirm that it “came into the hands of the queen of Sheba and that she handed him over to Solomon, after submitting him to multiple tests”...
Ancient esotericism affirms that "Jesus drank the sacred wine in that marvelous chalice, there, at the Last Supper". They say that "Joseph of Arimathea, the great Roman senator, collected in the divine cup the blood that flowed from the stigmata of the adorable savior of the world"...
There are those who affirm that this holy man, "after having filled the chalice with such a precious divine liquor, hid it together with the famous Longinus spear, underground and in his house"...
When the Roman police searched for the chalice, they demanded that Joseph of Arimathea return it because it belonged to the temple, but the old Roman senator did not want to deliver it, for this reason, my dear brothers and sisters, he had to be taken prisoner.
But when that distinguished man came out of jail, he looked for the chalice and the spear and with them he went in search of Christians to Rome. But on reaching that ancient city, he found persecution against the Christians; He then continued on his way along the shores of the Mediterranean, and they say that one night an angel appeared to him in a dream and told him: “That chalice has great magnetic power, because it contains the blood of the redeemer of the world. Bury it there”, and showed him the mountain of Montserrat, in Catalonia, Spain.
And it was there, in that transcendent Monsalvat, where the Roman man hid such precious jewels, such as the chalice and the spear.
I want, brothers and sisters, that you comprehend the profound significance of such relics. The chalice, in itself, represents the feminine yoni, the woman's sexual organ, and the spear, the one with which Longinus wounded the Lord's side, the same one with which Parsifal healed the wound in the side of Amfortas, is the living emblem of sexual force. It clearly represents the phallus, the masculine virile principle.
So, brothers and sisters, in the chalice and in the spear is the key to all power...
The time has come to know that it is not possible to transform ourselves with a different force than the one that created us, that put us on the mat of existence. It is urgent to understand that only that marvelous force of Eros can really transform us intimately in a definitive way.
Many have talked about the kundalini, the igneous serpent of our magical powers; however, it is not possible to wake her up without knowing the key. Obviously, such a key is the great arcanum, it is sex-yoga, the sahaja maithuna.
When we touch on these mysteries of sex, when we quote them, the Puritans are horrified, they consider us "sex fanatics", ignoring that the Gnostic studies have very solid foundations.
In former times, the one who dare to divulged the great arcanum was sentenced to death: his head was cut off, his heart was ripped out and his ashes were thrown to the four winds... something similar happened in Aztec Mexico.
In any case, I want you to know, my dear brothers and sisters, that the great arcanum is the maithuna, sexual magic.
I have given the key in my books: connection of the lingam-yoni without ejaculation of the ens-seminis; the mantra: I.A.O. (This is the fundamental mantra). There are many others that are used in the maithuna and with great pleasure I will show them to you later...
I want you to know that the sahaja maithuna can only be practiced with the priest-husband and priestess-wife; the sahaja maithuna should not be practiced with different people; the sahaja maithuna, only and exclusively, is licit to practice between husband and wife, in legitimately constituted homes.
The Fire of Kundalini
After some time of incessant practices, without ever spilling the cup of Hermes, that is, without ejaculating the ens-seminis, the igneous serpent of our magical powers awakens within the coccygeal chakra to begin its inward and upward journey along the spinal cord canal. Obviously, as the sexual fire of the kundalini begins its ascension as it advances, it opens the different chakras in the spine.
The first center that opens is in the coccyx and is known in the East by the name of “muladhara”, and in the West, by the apocalyptic name of “Church of Ephesus”. It is a beautiful "lotus flower" in the coccygeal bone; it has four wonderful petals. It is the fundamental center; it gives us power over the gnomes of the earth and over the tattva prithvi, that is, over the petrous ether that exists throughout planet earth.
When the igneous serpent of our magical powers (ascending through the spinal cord canal) reaches the level of the prostate (uterus), the second church opens, the church of Smyrna, the famous Shuadhisthana chakra, the extraordinary "lotus" with the six petals that it gives us power over the waters of life, over the tattva apas, over the undines of nature.
When the igneous serpent of our magical powers (ascending) reaches the height of the solar plexus, then the church of Pergamon opens; this is a beautiful "lotus flower" with ten petals. It gives us power over the tattva tejas and over salamanders; it confers on us telepathy, the power to capture the thoughts of people at a distance, the power over the universal fire of life, etc., etc., etc.
When the divine fire reaches the height of the heart, the church of Thyatira opens, the lotus flower with twelve petals, the famous anahata chakra. The development of such a faculty allows us to put our physical body within the fourth dimension; astral projections become simple and easy, etc.
When the sacred fire reaches the creative larynx, we can create anything with the imagination and crystallize it through the word. The throat chakra is the church of sardis, which has sixteen splendid petals; it gives us clairaudience, that is, the magic ear, the ability to hear the voices of the ultra. It also gives us conceptual synthesis, etc...
When the sacred fire reaches the height of the eyebrows, then the famous "lotus" of the two petals opens, the church of Philadelphia, the eye of clairvoyance.
And when the sacred fire reaches the pineal gland, the sahasrara chakra opens, the "lotus" with 1,000 petals, the church of Laodicea. It is there where the divine fire, the sacred fire of the divine mother Kundalini marries Lord Shiva; that is, with the Holy Spirit, with the third Logos (Binah). In those moments, the famous shiva-shakti tattva vibrates intensively. That's right, brothers and sisters, how the sacred fire comes to open the seven churches of the "apocalypse" of Saint John...
Summarizing, we will say:
- the first church that opens is the church of Ephesus, the muladhara chakra
- the second, the svadhishthana, the church of Smyrna
- the third is the church of Pergamon, the manipura chakra
- the fourth is the church of Thiatira, the anahata chakra
- the fifth is the church of Sardis, the vishuddha chakra;
- the sixth is the church of Philadelphia, the ajna
- and lastly, the church of Laodicea, the sahasrara.
These seven chakras give us immense powers:
- the first gives us power over the earth element
- the second over the water element
- the third over the fire element
- the fourth over air
- the fifth gives us power over the pure akasha (so, we can keep our body alive, even during the deep nights of the great pralaya)
- the sixth gives us clairvoyance, the power to see the thoughts of others as in an open book, the power to see the supersensible worlds, to study the mysteries of life and death, etc.
- the seventh gives us the power of polyvoyance, the ability to study the akashic records of nature; the dangma eye, the diamond eye, the divine eye that gives us deep inner illumination.
These seven chakras make us, in fact, kings and queens, priests priestesses of nature, according to the "order of Melchizedek", king of Salem. These seven chakras, brothers and sisters, open with the sacred fire of kundalini.
It is an absurd thing to affirm that "the awakening of the kundalini is dangerous." I want you to know, my dear brothers and sisters, that no neophyte is alone in this work. Everyone who works in the ninth sphere, that is, in sex, everyone who works in the forge of the Cyclopes, is undoubtedly assisted. The brothers and sisters of the esoteric brotherhood watch over the one who works with the mysteries of fire. None of you will be alone in this work; the igneous serpent is led by the brothers and sisters of the secret fraternity, along the spinal medullary canal.
However, it is good to know, my dear brothers and sisters, that this kind of work is not done overnight; in all this there are efforts and efforts.
The disciple must not let himself fall, because the disciple who lets himself fall has to fight a lot later to recover what was lost. The one who ejaculates the ens-seminis loses the fire... In the spinal cord there are 33 vertebrae that are closely related to the 33 degrees of occult Masonry. As we practice the Sahaja Maithuna, the sacred fire ascends slowly, from vertebra to vertebra, that is, from degree to degree. When we make the mistake of ejaculating the semen, then the fire descends one or more vertebrae, depending on the magnitude of the fault.
I want you to know, my dear brothers and sisters, that the sacred fire of the Kundalini only awakens with the charms of love.
Some suppose that it is possible to arouse such a fire through pranayama or other hatha-yoga exercises, but these are nothing more than sincerely mistaken people; they affirm what they do not know. Remember that "the road that leads to the abyss is paved with good intentions"... What happens is that many who practice pranayama achieve the rise of some igneous sparks (sparks that are released from the flame, sparks that jump and circulate from the bonfire), and then they believe that they have awakened the fire. Obviously, each of these sparks produce awakenings of the consciousness, they produce illumination, but that is not the complete awakening of the igneous serpent of our magical powers. Although it is true that any fraction of the kundalini (no matter how small) produces interior illuminations, increases in the consciousness, it is also no less true that pranayama does not achieve the total awakening of all the sacred fire; that is obvious.
Only through the charms of love does the divine serpent kundalini awaken, to begin its ascension along the spinal cord canal and truly lead us to the intimate self-realization of the Being. Awakening the kundalini is not dangerous because everyone who is working on it is assisted by the masters of the white universal brotherhood...
I want you to be practical, to transform yourselves, really, through love. Only by loving can we achieve the intimate transformation of the Being; only by loving can we fully achieve self-realization; only by learning how to handle that creative energy of the third logos can we reach the final liberation.
That "there is danger in the awakening of the kundalini", that "it can go through other paths", etc..., is false, because those who awaken the fire are always assisted.
Those who suppose that the sacred fire can awaken instantly, reaching the head ipso facto, immediately, are lying, because really the sacred fire goes up little by little through the dorsal spine, according to the merits of the heart.
Remember that each one of the 33 vertebrae of the dorsal spine implies certain virtues. No one could achieve the ascent of fire, for example in the 12th vertebra, if he does not have the moral conditions of such a vertebra; no one could take the sacred fire to the 20th vertebra, if she does not fulfill all the conditions and requirements of such a vertebra.
Thus, for the sacred fire to rise to this or that vertebra, it is necessary that we possess the virtues corresponding to it. That is why through the 33 vertebrae we have to suffer a lot and go through innumerable tests.
This is the teaching of fire, my dear brothers and sisters. This is the only way you can become omnipotent gods, with powers over fire, air, water and earth. This is not a question of theories, my dear brothers and sisters; This is a matter of concrete and definitive facts.
The time has come for you to free yourselves from vain intellectualism; the moment has arrived in which you understand the mysteries of sex. The time has come for you to definitively descend to the ninth sphere, to work intensely in the burning forge of Vulcan.
It is urgent, my dear brothers and sisters, that you get rid of many prejudices that impede progress. It is necessary that you, my dear brothers and sisters, put aside the "fear-mongers", ignorant people who tell you that "awakening the kundalini is dangerous", ignorant people who tell you that "sexual magic is harmful", etc....
All this is false, my dear brothers and sisters, because the adepts of the universal white fraternity, with which all of us initiates are in contact, have self-realized through sexual magic.
In the Gnostic movement there are millions of brothers and sisters who work with the Sahaja Maithuna and none have gone mad, none are sick, all enjoy perfect health.
If someone tells you that “sexual magic is harmful”, tell him that he is lying, because in the Gnostic movement there are millions of brothers and sisters who thoroughly know the mysteries of sex; there are millions of brothers and sisters who practice sexual magic and none of them are crazy.
There are also, in the East, millions of Gnostic brothers who work with the Sahaja Maithuna, and in Europe, there are Gnostic schools where the brothers and sisters also dedicate themselves to the study of the sacred mysteries of sex, all of them enjoy full health.
Reflect on these my words, brothers and sisters. I do not want, in this lecture, to go deeper; I only want to go into the prologue of our studies. Later, in the future, I will teach you, little by little, all the mysteries related to sex. For now, my dear brothers and sisters, listen to what I say to you, longing for your inner progress.
The Purpose of Sex
Our present humanity will perish with fire and earthquakes. So if one marries to beget children, it is better to not. But if it is to work on oneself, if it is to disintegrate the psychic aggregates and free the consciousness, in good time, wonderful; so that's the harsh reality of the facts.
The main thing in life is the work of the laboratory. A chemist can be a very good chemist, what good is being a chemist if he doesn't work in the laboratory... ...and that's all, nothing more. Whether the chemist actually works in the laboratory is another matter.
You may be wonderful students, but if you don't work in the father's laboratory, you'd be wasting your time miserably...
And what is done at weddings, what are weddings for? They only have one meaning, which one? To create the superior existential bodies of the being (I speak of Gnostic weddings), and disintegrate the ego.
And it is clear, ladies and gentlemen, that you see here on the altar, what is this, what will it be? Could it be a chalice, which means the female yoni (the female sexual organ), that's what it's and the rest? Here we see a rod or staff of the patriarchs..., the rod... what is it for, for decoration? to put it here in this altar? what this priest’s rod doing here for? The rod sir... ...it's phallic and there's a cross on top; It is clear now, that with this crossing, here, of the lingam (the male organ) with the yoni (female organ) what is wanted is achieved: to create the existential bodies of the Being, and its power, to use it to disintegrate the psychic aggregates, for that, that's the goal! For another thing it would have no purpose... ...for what?
There should be three lit candles, the three forces: holy affirming, holy denying, and holy reconciling (masculine force, feminine force, neutral force). When a man and a woman unite, something is created: either a larva or a demon will be created; or a child that is born and dies... ...but you can also create a god...
INRI! “ignis natura renovatur integra” (“fire incessantly renews nature”), what fire is this? There are many kinds of fires: the kitchen fire that cooks food; the bonfire that is lit in the street so that a homeless person warms up; or the fire of war or shootings, destructive one hundred percent; there are many fires... The fire of angels, the fire of lucifer, the fire of demons, are fire, different kinds of fire... And this INRI, to what fire is referring to? Well, Vulcan fire, Vulcan fire, yes sir. Which one is that? It is the sexual fire...
One with the sexual fire can do prodigies and wonders, whatever one wants, with this Vulcan fire...
With fire you can do wonders: you see a bar of pure iron, hard, it can be made malleable, become whatever one wants through fire; that's obvious.
Vulcan fire can also do wonders: you have this body, this one we have here, we... ...so many millions of years, with a little figure that we carry, that walks, that walks, do you think that this could not be changed? Give it another form, another shape? Well, of course with Vulcan fire you can! Haven't you ever heard of mutants?
The mutants are individuals who achieved reincarnation (through fire) of the physical body. They reintroduced themselves and turned themselves into a mutant. And that has been talked about lately, about mutants.
These can appear with an age of 100 years, if they wish, or assume in a given instant the figure of a young man of 18; they do not depend on time... they escaped, and how did they manage it? Through the sexual fire, which is the Vulcan fire (the Vulcan fire).
If a man isn't working with his Vulcan fire, he really is wasting his time miserably. And it has to be resolved soon, whatever... ...don't wait for the guru to tell you...
Obviously, you need something called "mercury" (the mercury of the wise), I remember, at this moment, that we were seeing there, a very interesting projection that our brother presented to us here, the two colossi of Rhodes, what are these? Sulfur and mercury (those are the two colossi of Rhodes).
Mercury is something that has to be manufactured at all costs. And if you don't want to make mercury, I'm sorry for you, not for me, for you.
How is this made? Well, there is a very simple but great artifice: that of the arcanum A.Z.F. Do I need to explain this to you? I think that everyone here is from the third chamber, so there is no need to explain it.
We were talking about there being the connection of the lingam-yoni, without ever spilling the cup of Hermes Trismegistus, the thrice great ibis god of Thoth.
...I speak it decently, not vulgarly, because sex is sacred and should never be profaned. And the related things, as we can see, must be spoken decently, in an aristocratic way, with high culture.
Obviously, the restrained desire will transmute the sacred sperm into what? Into creative energy. And that energy, what is it? That is the mercury of the wise.
Wonders are made with that mercury of the wise: crystallizing in a higher octave (such mercury), according to the musical scale (do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si), we will obtain what? The creation of the astral body. With the mercury in a second octave, crystallizing, we will obtain the body of the mind; and with a third octave we will achieve the causal body. Whoever possesses an astral body, a mental body, and a causal body, receives the pneumatic principles (the pneuma of the Gnostics, the psychic principles) and becomes a human.
Why is it said in the Gnostic marriage, to the man and the woman who are going to marry, that they remember that parable, in the wedding of that man... He showed up without wedding clothes. And of course, if one does not make the wedding suit of the soul (which are the superior existential bodies of the being), well, he will never become a human.
But everyone believes they are humans, they feel very " human", and they are not, even though they think they are. They are "intellectual mammals", but they are convinced that they are humans and there is no one who can take that idea from their heads. There they are... if they want to believe, let them believe; and if not, we do not harm ourselves at all! What does this matter to science, and to us?
So we have to create the bodies. If we don't create them, we don't receive the pneumatic and spiritual principles.
Now, it is one thing to become a human and another thing to become a superhuman.
Nietzsche speaks of the superhuman, he says:
“When Zarathustra was thirty years old he left his home and the lake of his home and went into the mountains. Here he enjoyed his spirit and his solitude, and for ten years did not tire of it. But at last a change came over his heart, and one morning he rose with the dawn, stepped before the sun, and spoke to it thus:
"You great star, what would your happiness be had you not those for whom you shine?
"For ten years you have climbed to my cave: you would have tired of your light and of the journey had it not been for me and my eagle and my serpent. "But we waited for you every morning, took your overflow from you, and blessed you for it.
"Behold, I am weary of my wisdom, like a bee that has gathered too much honey; I need hands outstretched to receive it. "I would give away and distribute, until the wise among men find joy once again in their folly, and the poor in their riches.
"For that I must descend to the depths, as you do in the evening when you go behind the sea and still bring light to the underworld, you overrich star.
"Like you, I must go under—go down, as is said by mankind, to whom I want to descend.
"So bless me then" you quiet eye that can look even upon an all-too-great happiness without envy!
"Bless the cup that wants to overflow, that the water may flow from it golden and carry everywhere the reflection of your delight.
"Behold, this cup wants to become empty again, and Zarathustra wants to become human again." Thus Zarathustra began to go under…
Zarathustra descended alone from the mountains, encountering no one. But when he came into the forest, all at once there stood before him an old man who had left his holy cottage to look for roots in the woods. And thus spoke the old man to Zarathustra:
… "Zarathustra has changed, Zarathustra has become a child, Zarathustra is an awakened one; what do you now want among the sleepers? You lived in your solitude as in the sea, and the sea carried you. Alas, would you now climb ashore? Alas, would you again drag your own body?"
Zarathustra answered: "I love mankind."
– “I go to where humanity is, I go to the city”...
"Why," asked the saint, "did I go into the forest and the desert? Was it not because I loved mankind all-too much? Now I love God; mankind I love not. Mankind is for me too imperfect a thing. Love of mankind would kill me."
Do not go to mankind. Stay in the forest! Go rather even to the animals! Why do you not want to be as I am—a bear among bears, a bird among birds?"
"And what is the saint doing in the forest?" asked Zarathustra.
The saint answered: "I make songs and sing them; and when I make songs, I laugh, cry, and hum: thus I praise God. With singing, crying, laughing, and humming, I praise the god who is my god” ...
But what do you bring us as a gift?" When Zarathustra had heard these words he bade the saint farewell and said: "What could I have to give you? But let me go quickly lest I take something from you!" And thus they separated, the old one and the man, laughing as two boys laugh.”
… As Zarathustra went on his way alone, at the hour when the sun declines, there met him an old woman, and she spoke thus unto his soul:
"Much has Zarathustra spoken also to us women, but never spoke he unto us concerning woman."
And Zarathustra answered her: "Concerning woman, one should only talk unto men…"
Then answered me the old woman: "Many fine things has Zarathustra said, especially for those who are young enough for them.
Strange! Zarathustra knows little about woman, and yet he is right about them! Do this happen, because with women nothing is impossible?
And now accept a little truth by way of thanks! I am old enough for it!
Swaddle it up and hold its mouth: otherwise it will scream too loudly, the little truth."
"Give me, woman, thy little truth!" said Zarathustra. And thus spoke the old woman:
"Thou goest to women? Do not forget thy whip!” .....
Well, the word “whip” was misunderstood by people. Whip refers to the fact that we, men have to have willpower, meaning, the whip (willpower) must be applied to oneself, in the sexual act, and not to lash the wretched women ever. But people misunderstood that the wretched women have to be "flogged"... ...well we know that Zarathustra, I mean, Nietzsche was a man full of love.
Well… “When Zarathustra came into the next town, which lies on the edge of the forest, he found many people gathered together in the market place... And Zarathustra spoke thus to the people:
"I teach you about the superhuman. The human is something that shall be overcome. What have you done to overcome him?
Zarathustra, however, beheld the people and was amazed. Then he spoke thus: "a human is a rope, tied between beast and the superhuman—a rope over an abyss. A dangerous across, a dangerous on-the-way, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous shuddering and stopping. What is great in the human is that he is a bridge and not an end: what can be loved in a human is that he is an overture and a going under….”
Behold, if one works, and if one disintegrates the psychic aggregates of the astral body, for example, the astral body will remain converted into a vehicle of gold and the serpent will swallow it.
If one disintegrates the psychic aggregates of the mental body, then it will be converted into a vehicle of gold and the serpent will swallow it.
If one disintegrates the psychic aggregates of the causal body, it will be converted into a vehicle of gold and the serpent will swallow it.
And if he disintegrates those psychic aggregates in which they are bottled up ...in the internal worlds and within which the consciousness is engrossed, the buddhic or intuitional body will become a vehicle of gold.
And if the most bestial psychic aggregates disintegrate... ...in the internal worlds, the body of atman, the ineffable, will become a vehicle of gold and the serpent will swallow it.
There are seven seals in the “apocalypse” of Saint John:
- the first seal is the physical one, which when is converted into a vehicle of gold
- the second seal is the vital body
- the third seal corresponds to the astral body
- the fourth seal is that of the mental
- the fifth that of the causal
- the sixth the buddhic
- and, the seventh that of Atman, the ineffable.
Whoever manages to break the seventh seal will achieve everything. That is why the “apocalypse” says on the day of the seventh angel, when he will sound the final trumpet, the kingdom of heaven will be consummated, as he offered it to his servants the prophets....
“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” – Revelation 11: 15
So, really indeed, when that is, when someone breaks the seventh seal, that one will be finished in it, the kingdom of heaven, one will not have errors ...
The last effort needed to achieve this purpose, which is needed to break the seventh seal, is to break the personality. The personality is not objective but subjective, incoherent, imprecise; within it there is all the inheritance of the race, of the nations, all our bad customs, and all the possibilities of repeating the error. You have to turn it into dust; it is not necessary for the resurrected one either. And it becomes dust by burning it with fire... ...and destroying it, so that there are no interferences between the Being and the human personality; there being no interference with what is real in us... ...the seventh seal is torn... ...then that marvelous sense of intuition opens. And that sense includes the five known and seven more...
That kind of power, those are things of the Being. For that, it is necessary to really dedicate oneself, to dedicate to working on oneself...
Whoever manages to destroy the ego and end the personality has taken a great step. The “apocalypse” says, referring to that:
“that the beast and the false prophet that performs signs before the beast, will end up in the lake of burning fire and brimstone, which is the second death”...
What is the beast? It is the ego. who is the false prophet? The human personality, which "does the signs before the beast", both "will end up in the fiery lake of fire and brimstone of the second death"; both, because if one achieves the destruction of the ego and the personality, what is truly worthwhile remains in us: the Being. "and the Being is the Being and only the reason for Being to be, is to be the same Being"...
Much later, in time, the one who has managed to burn the ego and the personality will be, because the Lord, the intimate Christ will resurrect in him. But for the Christ to rise again in a human, that human must have truly died in himself, here and now; that is the harsh reality of the facts... If any of you have anything to ask...
Disciple: Why does the sexual alchemical work have to be performed in the night?
Samael Aun Weor: Put a chicken egg, for example, or a complete nest with chicken eggs under the sun, to see if the chicken comes out, during the day and under the sunlight. I'm sure they will not come; in sunlight no... ...no chicks come out. Instead, let's see the hen with her eggs, lying in the dark, in the dark, in some corner, she brings out her chicks...
Human beings themselves are created in darkness, by the disposition of their creative organs.
When one believes that it is going very well, is when one is most susceptible to errors; that is what is most serious. Some believe that they are going very well and it turns out that they are devolved in time, but since their consciousness is bottled up in their ego, obviously, they do not realize that they are going in the wrong direction; they believe that they are going correctly and would even swear with tears of blood that they are going correctly; but, in truth, they are heading in the wrong way.
One has to walk the path of death, if one day one wants to reach self-realization. If one does not resolve, indeed, to cease to exist as an ego, he is miserably wasting his time.
I comply with telling you. If you accept it, that's fine; if you don't accept it, that's fine; I'm not the one who's going to be harmed, it's you.
In any case, those who do not resolve to die within themselves must know that upon entering the infernal worlds they wake up in evil and for evil; that's the harsh reality...
Then, already awake in evil and for evil, it will be even more difficult for them to accept that they are going wrong, because those who devolve within the infernal worlds are absolutely convinced that they are correct people and that they are doing very well; That is the harsh reality of the facts...
This path is not so easy, my dear brothers and sisters; It is very difficult. Nor should they expect that everything... ...in this we must take, sometimes terrible... ...many times a precept, a code of morals with all its nobility and beauty, serve as an obstacle to the path; that is the reality...
In this, the precepts of so many moral codes written out there do not work... in this what is useful is comprehension; make a balance of oneself to know what is left over and what is missing, now. What was left over, well, eliminate it. And what one lacks, to see how one achieves it. And the moral codes here... ...are superfluous, they're useless. May peace be with you!
An Instructor's Elaboration on the Lecture
Quotes from scriptures with commentary by a gnostic instructor, as an elaboration on the lecture by Samael Aun Weor.
It is written, “And Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים commanded HaAdam האדם, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest eat, but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat, for in the day thou eatest thereof, thou shalt die, thou shalt die (Muth TaMuth מות תמות).” - Genesis 2: 16, 17
From tradition we learn that the word Tzav צו (“commanded”) denotes idolatry in general, the name Iod-Havah יהוה refers to blaspheming the holy name, whilst Elohim אלהים indicates the denial of justice in the world. ‘HaAdam האדם' refers to the crime of murder, Amar אמר (saying, “to orgasm”), 'from every tree in the garden' to theft, 'mayst eat' to the prohibition from cutting flesh from a live animal. In saying, 'From every tree of the garden thou mayst eat' Elohim indicated that even if Adam should commit all these sins, he was not to despair. Thus, we see that the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and also the prophets, have eaten of it and died not at once. He wished to warn Adam against tasting of the tree of death, as it is written, 'but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil eat thou not of it, for whoever does so die as if he had taken poison.
It is written in Genesis, again:
“But of the fruit of the tree, which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim hath said: Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch (naga נגע) it, lest ye touch it gently (תגעו בו פן־תמתֽון).” – Genesis 3: 3
‘The fruit of the tree’ denotes the woman(‘s uterus). Thou shalt not eat (orgasm) thereof (with her), because as scripture states: 'Her feet go down to (the second) death and her steps lead into Sheol שאול (Hell)' (Proverb 5: 5).
There is fruit that is salutary when gathered (transmuted) from one tree (to another) and lethal when (by means of the animal orgasm is) plucked from (one tree into) another tree. This latter was the fruit (of passion that) Eve הוה referred to, that of the tree of death (you shall not eat, neither shall ye touch it) as is described by the words of scripture just quoted.” - Zohar
“For what (Mah מה) is Eve, (Havah הוה) to Adam (the brain) with all his labor, and thoughts of his heart that he (alchemically) labored under the sun.” – Ecclesiastes 2: 22
“And formed (וייצר), Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים, Ath HaAdam את־האדם of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים; and HaAdam became a living soul, Nephesh Chaiah נפש חיה.” – Genesis 2: 7
"This Ath HaAdam את־האדם is Israel ישראל (in Tiphereth). Here the word Tzar צָר (form) is written with the Vav and the two Iods ויי of the letter Aleph א, indicating that the Holy One (Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים) formed Ath HaAdam את־האדם with two natures, the higher and lower souls; the one divine, the other earthly, and impressed upon his form the divine name, יוי expressed by the two eyes and the nose between them, thus: The numerical value of these letters יוי, is 26, which is also that of the divine name, Iod-Havah יהוה.
It is on this account that scripture saith:
“From the top of the rocks (zurim צרים) I shall see Him” – Numbers 23: 9
The word zurim צרים (“rocks”) denotes also forms, so that Balaam who uttered these words, meant that in viewing the forms (zurim צרים) of Israel ישראל, he beheld (forms וייצר) and recognized the divine name (the Vav and the two Iods ויי of the letter Aleph א).
Another comparison of Israel with this Divine name is in the two tables of stone containing the law and representing two letters Iod, and the letter Vav יוי (of Aleph א), symbolizing what is written on them.
Ath HaAdam את־האדם also in himself represents the union and blending together of the higher and lower Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה (as in the heavens and the earth, Ath HaShamayim VeAth HaAretz את השמים ואת הארץ), symbolized by the repeating of the Shema שמע, morning and evening.
The union of the two natures in Ath HaAdam את־האדם is also referred to in the words: "This (Zain Ath זאת) is Bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh" – Genesis 2: 23
We also read that God planted Ath HaAdam את־האדם, that is, Israel, in the sacred garden of Eden, as it is written, "And Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים took Ath HaAdam את־האדם and put him in the garden" – Genesis 2: 15
Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים; that is, the heavenly father and mother; "garden," the lower Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה (in the Vav, the spine or VeAth HaAretz ואת הארץ, our physicality); "in Eden," the heavenly mother (את השמים Ath HaShamayim); "HaAdam האדם," (Tiphereth) the middle column of the sephirotic tree; from which was formed his (Hei ה) wife (in Malkuth), and who being his delight should never be separated from him.
It was then that the Holy One (Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים) planted (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים or soul archetypes, named, children of) Israel (or children of Ath HaAdam את־האדם), who are (within the spine of the seven solar bodies) the holy branches of the world, or, in other words, a (solar) race purer and better than those that had formerly existed, as it is written:
"The branch of my planting, the (alchemical) work of my (two Iods ידי) hands, that I may be glorified" - Isaiah 60: 21
"And out of (HaAdamah האדמה) the ground made Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food" – Genesis 2: 9
"Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים denoting the celestial father (El HaYam אל-הים) and mother (Elah Yam אלה-ים); "every tree (Otz עץ) that is pleasant to the sight (Ayin ע)," the Just (Tzadik צ); and "good for food," (the Tree of Life in) the middle column consisting of the sephiroth Kether, Daath, Tiphereth, Yesod, Malkuth, and from which proceed those stores of food by which the righteous are sustained and which, when individuals becomes (sexually) purified and enlightened, will contribute to the (spiritual) life of the world. Then will every one take of the tree of life in the midst of the (spine of their) garden (physicality) and eat and live for evermore.” - Genesis 3: 22 " - Zohar
Samael Aun Weor stated:
“The cephalic-rachis liquid and the semen are the poles of the sexual energy. The angel has the two poles upwards, towards his head. The common and current human beings and the demons have one pole upward and the other downward. They form the brain with one pole (the right), and they fornicate with the other pole (the left).
The Kundalini of the angel goes upwards; yet, the demon’s Kundabuffer goes downwards.” – The revolution of Beelzebub by Samael Aun Weor
The Zohar continues:
"The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil symbolizes (the two hemispheres of the brain – Chokmah and Binah – the angels nourish their brain by the sublimation of their sexual energy).
The (demons and humanoids fornicate, they are those) whose intellectual faculties are directed only to (Malkuth and Klipoth) phenomenal objects that can be seen and handled (by the five senses and tenebrous powers), and by whom the presence and operation of (Ath את, the Kundalini), the Schekinah שכינה, in their nature, in the life of nations and in their souls (is neglected by) themselves, they are unrecognized (as humans) and ignored (as humanoids); and thus it will be until (the second death, when) the times of error and darkness pass away; then will they also become proselytes of the divine life of whom it will be said:
"The Iod י of Havah הוה (the Schekinah שכינה in Malkuth) lead them alone and there is no strange god with them" – Deuteronomy 32: 12
Thus, the human nature transformed and enlightened and purified (by the second death), then their soul will become as a tree that, in its stately form and beauty, is pleasant to the sight.
The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil occasioned (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים or soul archetypes, named, children of) Israel to fall into error (ego) which they should have avoided and remembered the divine command admonishing them to "Eat not of the tree" of Good and Evil, on pain and penalty of spiritual death involving loss of union with the Divine (Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה), without which there can be no interior enlightenment, no spiritual development.
This command with its twice repeated warning, "thou shalt die, thou shalt die (Muth TaMuth מות תמות)," refers also to the (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים or soul archetypes, named), children of Israel who endured two great calamities, the destruction of the first and second temples (in the heavens and in their physicalities or the earth, Ath HaShamayim VeAth HaAretz את השמים ואת הארץ), that is, the loss of the higher and lower Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה or manifestation of the Divine presence in their midst (that is, in Tiphereth, the human soul, and in the midst of their spine of their physicalities), as expressed and typified in the words:
“And (ונשתו his wife drank) the waters from the sea (his sea), and the river (his river) shall be wasted and dried up.” – Isaiah 19: 5
And which in the end became resolved in Ain Soph, the Boundless One, whence it emanated at first.
This aridity or state of dryness (in the fornicators) will not however continue always, for when (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים or soul archetypes, named, children of) Israel comes out of captivity (in the world of formation, called Yetzirah) then will the river that was dried up and wasted go forth again out of Eden to water the garden, and divine knowledge cover the earth as the waters cover the seas.
This recurrence and reappearance of the Divine Presence (of Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה) amongst mankind is mystically referred to (as resurrection and) in the words:
"Then shalt thou (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים or soul archetypes) delight themselves in Iod-Havah יהוה; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob (Tiphereth) thy father (named Israel): for the mouth of Iod-Havah יהוה hath spoken it." - Isaiah 58: 14
The word Anag ענג (delight or joy) in this passage of scripture is composed by the initial letters of "Eden עדן," Nahar נהר (river), and Gan גן (garden.) Then also shall be accomplished and fulfilled the words of scripture:
"Then Moses and the children of Israel shall sing this song unto Iod-Havah יהוה, and will speak, saying, I will sing unto (the Iod י of Havah הוה, that is in Malkuth) יהוה, for it (the Iod י) hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath it (the Iod י) thrown into the sea.” – Exodus 15: 1 for error and idolatry which is symbolized by Pharaoh and his hosts will be destroyed and pass away forever.
“My strength and song is Jah יה, and may I be saved (by the Iod י of Jesus, Jeshuah ישועה): this (Iod י of Eli אלי) is my God, (this Iod י of Elahi אלהי) is my Goddess (and the Iod י of my father אבי Abi, Chesed, my innermost), and we will glorify it (the Iod י); and we will exalt it (the Iod י).” – Exodus 15: 2. The Iod י of Havah הוה, that is in Malkuth, is the Schekinah שכינה." - Zohar
