The Transmutation of Sexual Energy (3)
Fertility Control vs. Birth Control
Scientists have discovered that the thyroid and the pituitary glands have certain very intimate functions that are related to sexual expression.
The prostate gland is located at the base of the bladder, surrounding its neck. This gland is where that seminal fluid, the Mercury of secret philosophy, is stored.
Ancient magician-physicians used to attach exceptional importance to the prostate gland, because the Hierophants or Kabiri of the Sacred Initiatic Colleges had since remote times considered the prostate as one of the most important organs for exercising High Magic.
The prostate gland exerts decisive influence on the vital fluids that circulate in the nervous system.
Many doctors have found through observation and experience that when a man’s prostate becomes inflamed he becomes irritable, neurasthenic and with a marked tendency to commit suicide. Were their prostates treated, many such individuals’ health could be restored and they return to their normal activity.
Very common among elderly men, hyperatrophy of the prostate is due to hypersecretion of male hormones. Basically, such hypersecretion is caused by overexcitement of the testicles by the gonadotropic hormone of the pituitary.
Sexual abuse causes prostatic conditions. - Samael Aun Weor, The Doomed Aryan Race
The gonads of women are the ovaries, the breasts and the uterus. Those of males are the testicles, the phallus and the prostate gland. Such reproductive glands basically turn out to be wonderful sexual micro-laboratories. It is unquestionable that the abovementioned glands have a double function, since they have external and internal secretion.
Although it is true that the ovaries produce the ovum, it is less evident that they also increte [secrete internally] a marvellous endocrinal substance that vitalizes women and makes them feminine.
It is true, effective and real that the testicles have the Ens Seminis (the entity of semen) as an external secretion in which the spermatozoa float. In fact, the latter amount to the vital germs of existence.
The intimate hormonal incretion from the testicle cortex is the wonderful power that gives energy to males and makes them essentially masculine.
A normal male is he who has normal male gonads. A normal female is she who has normal female gonads.
The ovaries very wisely regulate the distribution of calcium in women. This has already been proven.
An excessive number of pregnancies “because of circumstances,” causes the terrible cases of osteomalacia, or deformities due to soft bones, which are so common in the densely populated countries of the world in which we live.
It has been scientifically verified that when pregnancies are very frequent they truly exhaust the calcium reserves and so the bones are weakened. Any doctor can make it evident that many women suffer from trouble with their teeth during pregnancy.
In men, the testicles (also called interstitial glands) regulate the calcium in bones, giving them strength and stability.
Through many years of observation and experience, sages have been able to verify that males with very strong bones are generally very virile sexually.
It has already been fully ascertained by means of profound scientific observations that some of the endocrines act intelligently as accelerators of the sexual glands and that others diminish such action.
Eminent biologists, whom we cannot doubt, think that the thymus gland stops sexual appetite.
It is known that the ovaries release an ovum every twenty-eight days according to the lunar cycle. Obviously this female gamete is collected into one of the Fallopian tubes and is carried to the uterus, where it must meet the male germ (the spermatozoon), if a new life is to begin.
It has been proven that no force in life expresses itself in a more impelling way than the effort the male and female gametes make to meet each other.
Birth control is a crime; control of fertilization is a duty.
In these days of world crisis and population explosion there are three absurd systems around for controlling fertilization:
- A. Physical
- B. Chemical
- C. Biological
Included within the first system are: pessaries, spirals, condoms, membranes, etc, etc, etc.
The second system is comprised of spermicidal ointments that are arsenic-based, mercury-based, etc. (cellular poisons).
Within the third system are included anovulatory pills; ligatures of the Fallopian tubes or of the spermatic cord; Ovulen 28; Anovlar 21; Retex, etc, etc, etc.
It is obvious that not only do all the physical contraceptive procedures, which are one hundred percent mechanistic, cause often irreparable organic damage, but they also radically relax human ethics and lead to degeneration.
It is unquestionable that ointments of all kinds applied to the vagina produce chemical irritations and imbalance in the cells of the womb neck.
Undoubtedly, all biological anovulants, which prevent the fall of the ovum into the uterus, provoke an appalling imbalance of the marvellous Hypophysis-Gonad Axis.
All the contraceptive pills may result in diverse ailments in the female organism. Really, many contraceptives used by women can only produce cancer.
Some males have a vasectomy, and obviously, with that kind of operation, they cause serious alterations in all their organic activities.
It is indispensable that we understand thoroughly the tremendous power of those vital agents called lysosomes, without which the nucleus of the organic cell could not stay alive.
It is evidently manifest, clear, and positive that the stabilized lysosomes of the spermatozoon and the ovum generate healthy and strong babies.
The contraceptive pill and the other biological and chemical elements destroy the lysosomes of spermatozoa and ovum, giving rise to sick babies, lunatics, paralytics, deaf-mutes, blind people, idiots, homosexuals, lesbians, etc.
Scientists have been able to verify that the ointments applied to the neck of the womb with the purpose of blocking it destroy cellular lysosomes. The lysosomes thus destroyed are free to annihilate cells and cause ulcers and cancer in the vaginal walls and the neck of the womb.
Lysosomes in full harmonious activity inside the living cell constitute the foundation of existence.
Varied forms of lysosomes exist: amylases (carbohydrates); catalases; peroxidases; hydrases (hydrogen); Lipases; oxidases; proteases (proteins).
It is obvious that the lysosome in itself is an enzymatic electromagnetic center.
In the living nucleus of the cell is the K-meson which by radiating towards the periphery produces the intracellular lysosomes by the Law of the Eternal Heptaparaparshiknokh.
In harmony with the infinite, in contact with nature, the surface tension and the osmotic and encotic pressure of all the cells (red cells, spermatozoa, etc) reach equilibrium.
Detergents, insecticides, spermicidal ointments, drugs, hormones from animals, carbon monoxide, etc, destroy the lysosomes of spermatozoa, ova, etc.
Vital air far from cities, prana in forests, sun, pure water, etc, fortify and enrich the organism with wonderful lysosomes.
Certainly, lysosomes are the active agents of the vital stock (lingam sarira - the Vital Body). The physical, chemical and biological procedures in fashion for birth control destroy lysosomes, bring about frightening diseases and kill life.
The best contraceptive system that exists is to never reach the spasm, the orgasm of organic physiology.
Obviously, during “metaphysical,” or “chemical,” copulation (sexual alchemy), any ripe spermatozoon can escape and cause fertilization. There is no need to pour out thousands of spermatozoa to achieve one fertilization.
During the practice of the transmutation of the creative energy, if the procreation of another human being is desired, any mature spermatozoon can escape in order to fertilize an ovum, and that is all.
This is the only healthy system for solving the extremely serious problem of demographic expansion.
This is the key for controlling human fertility in an intelligent and harmless way.
Non-ejaculation is evidently a terrible sacrifice for lustful people.
Thelema (willpower) is what is required in order to withdraw in time, before the sexual spasm.
It is advisable that we state that nature does not make leaps; the student can and even must make the change little by little.
If we really want to consolidate, to establish, to utilize our system, I consider it necessary to start with brief sexual practices, of very short duration, from one to five minutes daily, at the most.
Later on we can certainly extend the time of each practice. Great athletes of sexual yoga are used to practicing the Sahaja Maithuna daily for an hour.
In no way is it advisable to begin with long sexual practices; the change must be made methodically and with very great patience, never being dismayed.
After some years of patient learning, the Sahaja Maithuna will become his or her normal function, the standard of his or her sexual life.
One of the wonderful advantages of our system is that it conserves sexual potency one’s whole life through.
We need to transmute sperm into energy in order to awaken the Sacred Fire and make it climb along the spinal column up to the brain. Only thus will it be possible for us to develop all of our faculties and powers.
We need to work with that Caduceus of Mercury that we have in our spinal column.
Obviously, when we are able to transmute the sperm into energy, when we do not make the mistake of spilling the Vessel of Hermes Trismegistus, then the sperm that has not been ejaculated is transformed into Seminal Energy.
That energy, in turn, bipolarises into solar and lunar atoms of a very high voltage, which rise through two nervous cords twined along the spinal column, the two cords that appear in Mercury's Caduceus. - Samael Aun Weor, from the lecture “The Esoteric Pentagram”
The vertebral column or rachis is harmoniously made up by the perfect superimposition of thirty-three vertebrae, forming a precious case for the spinal cord. It can be located with absolute precision in the posterior and middle parts of the trunk. Five parts or regions can clearly be distinguished in it: cervical, dorsal, lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal.
Out of the total number of vertebrae (“pyramids,” or “canyons,” as they are called in occult science), seven are cervical, twelve dorsal, five lumbar, five sacral, and four coccygeal.
Medical doctors know very well that the cervical, dorsal and lumbar vertebrae remain independent one from another, whereas the sacral and coccygeal ones are united with surprising eurythmy, respectively forming the sacrum and the coccyx.
A careful study on the vertebral column allows one to understand that all the vertebrae have a series of characteristics in common, while some other of their characteristics are unique to the vertebrae of each region.
A vertebra in itself is made up of an osseous mass or body, more or less cylindrical and which occupies its anterior part; from which two anteroposterior columns or peduncles project, wisely connecting the body with a series of protrusions called transverse, articular and spinal apophyses, and vertebral laminae.
Between these and the vertebral body, there is an ample orifice which, together with the other vertebrae, forms a roughly cylindrical duct or vertebral duct, well known to people of science. Inside this tube, the spinal cord is lodged in an extraordinary and marvellous way.
The vertebral body is more or less cylindrical, its surface being carved on a vertical direction at its lateral and anterior sides, while its posterior side is slightly carved in a transverse direction, constituting the tube of the medulla oblongata.
The bases of the cylinder, the superior and inferior sides of the body, are horizontal and somewhat concave, since they are obviously more protruding at the periphery than at the center, where they present many wonderful orifices, while the periphery is extraordinarily made up of compact tissue.
According to the yogis in the Hindustan, there are two most fine and thin nervous channels along the spinal column, which are called Ida and Pingala, and a deep channel called Sushumna, which runs inside and along the whole of the spinal cord.
Obviously, those specific nervous channels serve for the ascension of the sexual energy. Unfortunately, they will never be found with a scalpel, because they belong to the Fourth Dimension.
And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep, and said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: and two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth. - Zechariah 4: 1-3, 11-14
The two olive-tree branches that pour out oil like gold through two pipes, are the two nadis Ida and Pingala.
These are the two Olive Trees of the Temple. These are the two candlesticks before the Throne of the God of the Earth. These are the Two Witnesses of the Apocalypse and, if anybody wanted to harm them, fire comes out from their mouth and devours their enemies.
The ancient wisdom tells us that Ida and Pingala tie up at the coccygeal bone and rise from there, like two snakes coiled around the spine, to the brain. Nevertheless, the very root of that pair of nervous cords is to be found in the sexual organs, as Sivananda teaches in his book Kundalini Yoga.
In males, Ida starts at the right testicle and Pingala at the left one; in females, that order is reversed starting at the ovaries. The secret doctrine teaches its disciples that Ida is of lunar nature and that Pingala is solar.
Hindustani yogis assert that Ida is intimately connected to the left nostril, and that Pingala is connected to the right nostril. Although that order is reversed in women as mentioned above, the result is the same.
The Gnostic Movement teaches its disciples that during the esoteric practices of sexual transmutation, the lunar atoms of the seminal system ascend through the nervous channel Ida while the solar atoms ascend victoriously through Pingala.
Profound research has allowed us to understand that Ida and Pingala end at the frontal region in between the eyebrows, forming a gracious knot and continuing from there as certain subtle ducts that start at the root of nose through very thin osseous canals, where some nerve endings are stimulated, that in turn receive stimulation during certain esoteric practices.
Ultimately, such channels connect Ida and Pingala with the esoteric heart, a wonderful magnetic center located in the region of the thalamus.
The esoteric heart is the capital center that controls the physical heart. The chakra of the tranquil heart is controlled by the capital chakra located in the thalamus.
Wise esotericists in Laya Yoga say that in the region of the thalamus is found the mysterious nervous channel called Amrita Nadi, which serves the specific purpose of connecting the esoteric heart with the famous Anahata Chakra, the magnetic lotus of the physical heart.
Ida and Pingala, continuing to the heart through this mysterious set of subtle channels, connect the sexual organs to the cardias.
Further research has allowed us to understand that the Amrita Nadi has (besides other functions) the very singular function of connecting the esoteric heart of the thalamus with the thousand-petalled lotus located on the pineal gland, in the upper part of the brain.
The spinal column is that cane like a measuring stick of which the Book of Revelation speaks; it is Brahma’s rod, Aaron’s staff, Mercury’s wand with its two coiled snakes.
The spinal cord ends in a kind of swelling - the medulla oblongata - which is not fixed to the brain but floats in a liquid medium, so that if one receives a knock on the head, its force is absorbed by the liquid and the medulla is not damaged.
Salvation of man lies exclusively in the spinal cord and the sexual energy; any other way is a lamentable waste of time.
