Unity and the Duality of Light and Darkness
“And there was a day when the Beni HaElohim בני האלהים came to present themselves before Iod-Havah יהוה, and HaShatan השטן came also among them. And Iod-Havah יהוה said unto HaShatan השטן, where do you come from? Then HaShatan השטן answered Iod-Havah יהוה, and said, From going to and fro in (Mitzrimah מצרימה) the earth, and from walking up (to Mi מי) and down (to Mah מה) in it.” - Job 1: 6, 7
The time has come to understand that we really depend on internal forces. Obviously, those forces are divided in an antithetical manner; that originates the fight between the powers of light and the powers of darkness. The objective of this lecture is to study the duality of everything that exists.
Truly, brothers and sisters, there are plants that heal and plants that kill. For example: monkshood is poisonous, it kills, but in infinitesimal doses it is used therapeutically. Cobra venom kills, but in infinitesimal doses it has been tested against cancer. The venom of the rattlesnake kills, but the meat of that viper radically cures cancer, even in the last degree. The head and the rattles are not used, and a capsule is taken every half hour or every hour. So, behold the duality of all forces.
Leaving the body at will in astral travels is extraordinary, because one can directly know the mysteries of life and death. However, in the astral world we also find duality. Back in childhood you heard tales about witches that sound ridiculous, but the reality, even if it seems like a joke, is that witches are real. There are certainly people, especially in those fields, who know how to project themselves at will in the astral world without having studied; unfortunately these people have negatively polarized, and they have misused that faculty of astral projection. Those witches are [negatively polarized] people who know how to project themselves in the astral world.
Behold, the chelas चेल [disciples] of the White Lodge, they are people who also know how to project themselves in the astral world. People who are on the path of light, chelas, initiates of Agartha, of Shamballa, also project themselves in the astral world; any lama knows how project in the astral world. Lobsang Rampa knew how project himself in the astral world; but like everything in life, there are two poles, also the witches and their husbands, who are called drones, also know how project themselves in the astral world, so, behold that duality of life.
When one reads Richard Wagner, the Wagnerian drama, his Parsifal, one does not stop feeling a little fascinated by that Castle of Montsalvat where the famous Temple of the Holy Grail is located; but there is an antithesis mentioned by the playwright there, I want to refer emphatically to the Castle of Klingsor, the black magician. So, behold how intriguing, two castles, one of the White Magic, where the chalice is, the Grail where Christ drank at the last supper; the other, the castle of Black Magic, where the black grail of the horrible, dark, left character named Klingsor is.
Yet, what many people call into question and may have considered Wagner's fantasy has a tremendous reality, because the two castles really exist in Spain. The transcendent Montserrat where the Holy Grail is actually exists, it is a castle that is in Jinn state, it is a castle in Spain, yet this is not the only one. Before Spain came to manifest itself as it is, in those times when Atlantis was recently submerged, there were many castles in Spain inhabited by great masters of the White Lodge, Atlantean survivors of that old submerged continent, and that castle of Montsalvat comes from those times of the Atlanteans, because Spain does not belong to Europe. Spain is a piece of Atlantis that did not submerge, lands that emerged were added unto it. Spain is not from Europe, it is Atlantean.
Well, the Castle of Montsalvat comes from Atlantis, where the Holy Grail was certainly deposited, it is a tremendous reality.
That Grail exists. Abraham used it, and before him it was in the power of Melchizedek, King of Salem, our planetary genie.
The Earth also has its planetary genie who is none other than Melchizedek. Melchizedek is a man of flesh and blood that exists, who lives as a man, he is a complete human- like God, he is the genie of the Earth. He normally lives in Agartha, in the subterranean region. There are secret doors to enter Agartha. It is a region that is inside the Earth, there are seas, mountains, there is a divine brotherhood, populated by inhabitants of Lemuria and Atlantis. Melchizedek normally lives in Agartha. He has made terrible prophecies. On one occasion he was able to make himself visible in the middle of Tibet. He has made a series of prophecies that have been fulfilled. Wars are prophesied, earthquakes, until finally a collision of planets. Melchizedek already prophesied it. He lives, and he had the chalice, and gave it to Abraham.
Through the centuries the Grail went from initiate to initiate until it ended up in the Temple of Solomon. Jesus also had the Grail in his power and from it he drank the wine of the last supper. Joseph of Arimathea, in that chalice, collected the blood of the Redeemer of the world, at the foot of Golgotha, on the Mount of Skulls. Yes, Joseph of Arimathea filled the Grail with Jesus royal blood in the fullest sense of the word.
Much later, you already know that the Roman police arrived looking for such a chalice, but he did not want to hand the grail over. Joseph of Arimathea also hid the spear with which Longinus wounded the Lord's side. So, because he did not want to hand over the chalice, he was locked up in jail for 40 years and when he came out he dug up the chalice and the spear, because he had them stored underground and with those venerated jewels he went to Rome, then persecution began against the Christians.
He continued through the Mediterranean and one night in a dream an angel appeared to him, told him, "That chalice has great magnetic power, because the blood of the Redeemer of the world is contained in it, bury it there"
Thus, the angel showed him the temple of Montserrat, in the transcendent Castle of Montsalvat. Joseph of Arimathea arrived there and buried those jewels, the tradition says that over time that temple became invisible, that is, it entered into Jinn state, invisible to mortals.
In the Middle Ages, many knights were looking for the chalice and the spear, especially in that time of the crusades, but it was not possible to find either the chalice or the spear. As a memory of those times and of the search, that of the champions' cup that is given to the Olympians is preserved.
Obviously, the chalice and the spear have tremendous significance. The chalice symbolizes something that people see with morbidity, but that is very sacred, I mean the feminine yoni. As for the spear, it is obvious that it represents the masculine phallus. In the chalice and the spear is hidden the key to all power.
But look at the law of antitheses, the duality; right there is the castle of the Black Grail, the left castle of all the covens, that castle of Klingsor. Whoever reads those passages of the Wagnerian drama would believe that the Klingsor castle was a simple fantasy, but it is not so, the castle has a tremendous reality, that castle really exists and by law of antitheses it is analogous to that of Montserrat. It has a ground floor, an upper floor, it has beautiful gardens, a magnificent library where many scholars study, a winding staircase that leads to the hall of witchcraft where Klingsor worked with all his necromancy instruments; it is fascinating to see those 18th century rugs, those magnificent, terrible rock crystal mirrors, that central lamp on the round table; yet, it is not that the round table of King Arthur and his Knights, no! It is the round table of witchcraft. Behold the antitheses! Behold how they play everywhere.
At the door of that hall is not the Holy Grail, no, there is its antithesis, and it is the copper cauldron or caldron that represents the black grail. If the silver chalice from which the beloved Savior of the world drank is the sumum of all chastities, the emblem of all perfections, then the black grail, the cauldron or caldron, its antithesis, is the symbol of all prostitutions, the symbol of all necromancy, the symbol of all forms of black magic, symbolized all forms of black tantra.
How notorious all these antipodes are! So, it is well worth knowing them.
As for the spear, the one that hurt the beloved one as well as healed King Anfortas, we must not ignore the spear of all magical fields, the spear of sorcery and necromancy, it is the same phallic power but sinisterly used in dark covens. With good reason, it is said in Freemasonry that between the sublime and the ridiculous there is only one step, and this is axiomatic; along with the most resplendent temples of light, there are also the most horrible areas of darkness.
If the chelas of the White Lodge progress from degree to degree, if based on efforts any lanú makes his advances, the chelas of the Black Lodge also progress from degree to degree, but they regress in time.
In the White Lodge there are symbolic garments. For example, the chela who has passed the tests of earth, air, water, puts a short cape on the shoulders. The initiate of the fifth initiation of the Minor Mysteries will have a small cloak that reaches the elbows. An initiate of the sixth initiation of the Minor Mysteries will have a cloak that reaches the height of the navel. An initiate of the seventh initiation will have a cloak that reaches down to the calves. At the ninth initiation, one will have a cloak that will drag along the ground. The robes, for example, in the White Lodge, they use the mantle of distinction that goes from head to foot, that is used by the adepts of the White Lodge, it is very difficult to achieve such a mantle. The inhabitants of Nirvana wear the Diamond Mantle, these are the garments of the Dharmakayas, but there are nirvanis who wear short diamond mantles and others long to the feet, they are those who have reached the degree of Kumaras.
Also in the Black Lodge there are symbolic vestments and you will see that at Klingsor Castle they wear little cloaks, vestments. The witches are very mischevious, sarcastic, they go up that spiral staircase until they reach their dark sanctuary, but as they progress, they lengthen their tunics; when they are very experienced they wear a long tunic. Their tunics do not display the colors that belong to the ultraviolet range, but the infrared. The great hierarchs of the Black Lodge wear robes with red and black dragons, etc.
There are also white and black Jinns. Montserrat, Chapultepec, everywhere there are temples of the White Lodge in Jinn state, there are also black ones, which do wonders. There are famous witches who put their bodies in the fourth dimension. The scientists will deny that the physical body can be given a different form of bird, dog; the scientist would not believe us, the reality is that it is true.
The witchcraft hall is in Salamanca, in Spain.
I am speaking to you so that you learn to balance what is light and what is darkness. There are witches and they know how to put their body in the fourth dimension, and they have a wrong doctrine, they say that black is white and white is black and they have a logic, the logic of the Abyss.
To remove their baptism, the witch invokes a serpent (the Kundabuffer) and licks their spine from top to bottom to develop the Kundabuffer, and the female or male aspirant receives an order to jump into a river of crystalline waters; when they come out from there they are converted into vultures flying through the air. That is what a witch told me. She didn't go there because only people of social position went.
Everything has a purpose: to know, you have to know everything.
There are also extraordinary white Jinns. Remember Jesus walking on the waters of the Sea of Galilee. Peter, when he saw him walking on the waters, also jumped on the water, he was walking very well, suddenly he doubted and sank, then he spoke to the Master Jesus:
“And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” - Matthew 14: 31
With that, Jesus gave him the key to the Jinn states.
A case of black Jinn was Simon the magician. The master knew him and his disciple Menander, who reached the pinnacle of Romanesque science. I saw Simon the magician on the roads of old Rome, raising his index finger and pointing to the heavens, he said:
“Unto you I speak in metaphors, but you must comprehend what I say.... There are two Stocks of all the Aeons put together, having neither beginning nor end, springing out of one Root, the which is the infinite power, the invisible silence; of which Stocks, the one shows itself from above, the which is a Great Power, understanding of the All, pervading all things, and of the male sex. The other showing itself from below, is the Great Mind, and is of the female sex; generating all things. The resolution of all problems is in the union of the two. The Power Itself is both male and female.” —The Preaching of Simon the Magician
Simon the magician was terrible. He put his body in a Jinn state and challenged Peter, who also put his body in a Jinn state. Simon the magician also flew over the heads of the people in Rome, of course, when Peter, a disciple of Jesus, saw him doing all of that, he conjured him in the name of the Living God and made him lose his balance. He fell. They say he broke his legs.
I went to investigate Simon the magician one night, with the purpose of working with the law of karma. Applying the law to a certain town, I went over there, on the outskirts of Rome, I invoked Simon the magician and finally he answered telepathically and said, “Call me in the name of Simon Peter”, because I called him in the name of Christ. Simon Peter and Simon the magician are the two antitheses.
So, I entered a large mansion, there I met Simon the magician dressed like any Samaritan, surrounded by his disciples. There was also the famous Menander, who reached the pinnacle of magical sciences. I finished verifying that both were black magicians and to finish verifying it I pronounced and said: "Hail to Christ, down with Jahveh!" The evil genius, furious, attacked me. The interesting thing is that he attacked me exactly where the telepathic eye is, the solar plexus. I had no choice but to unsheathe the flaming sword.
Simon Peter white Jinn and Simon the magician, black Jinn, a pair of antitheses, the two Jinns... and thus the law of constant analogies exists in everything that is, in everything that has been, and in everything that will be.
Black and white tiles [such as on the floor, or a chessboard] symbolize the positive and the negative. When one tries to ascend, one must first go down. All of us who have worked in those [superior] regions have descended to the infernal worlds [to clean them]. All of us who have worked in the spheres of the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune know what it is to descend, to descend into those regions.
All of us have to eliminate subjective elements that we have very much alive in those submerged regions. To eliminate them we have to go down where they are and live with the dark ones.
All of us who have ascended to the Empyrean have had to work in submerged regions, work with terribly evil beings and learn to live with them, behaving well in order to eliminate what is in us that belongs to those regions.
The famous black grail really exists, and the temple that Wagner told us about in Parsifal is within ourselves here and now.
I still remember an extra help that the Angel Adonai gave me to eliminate certain dark subjective elements that remained in me; that extra help was given to me in the work that belonged to Neptune. I was taken for that purpose to the castle of the black grail, so I had to face German, Chinese, Mexican, USA witches. They go there to reunite in that castle. They were preparing a table for the great banquet. I drew my sword many times.
Adonai, the angel of light and joy, accompanied me. When they were preparing the table to celebrate the macabre feast, I did an act of rebellion against the Black Lodge, with the purpose of reducing to ashes all that castle of darkness. It is clear that I drew the sword and used it with great force, several times I plunged the sword into the chest of such dark witches.
As that sword throws flaming flames, I made supreme efforts to emanate fire, reduce that castle to ashes, but as a rare thing I only managed to exhale slight flames, strange because the sword throws flames, despite efforts, only small flames. Adonai watched me and I made such efforts that I fell into a delirious, intoxicated state, desperate efforts...
Mephistopheles, the Good Devil, who is nothing but the very shadow of the Third Logos, is a coach, he is the best of friends, the one who makes us strong in virtue. The reality is that as each one of you has their Mother (Adonia) Kundalini and just as she is a sunderable part of Binah, likewise Mephistopheles, who is a magnificent coach, the one who makes us strong in victory (Netzach נצח). Goethe wrote that God says to Mephistopheles:
“Here too thou art free to act without control; I never have cherished hate for such as thee. Of all the spirits who deny, the scoffer is least wearisome to me.” – Faust by Goethe
"The lucubrations of those great seers of the astral who were called alchemists, kabbalists, occultists, etc., were not in vain. What we saw then inside this den was certainly frightful...
I unsheathed my flaming sword many times in order to throw flames upon this fatal abode of the necromancer Klingsor...
In an unexpected way, Adonai and I approached some calchonas who were arranging the table for the feast...
In vain I passed my sword through the chest of one of those witches; she remained impassable. Unquestionably, she was awakened in evil and for evil...
It is clear that I wanted to make fire pour as rain from heaven upon that horrendous fortress...
I made supreme efforts; I felt dismayed, and in those instants the Angel Adonai came near to the windows of my eyes in order to see what was happening inside of myself...
Imagine for a moment any person standing before the window of a house, in order to observe through the glass to see what is happening in the interior...
It is clear that the eyes are the windows of the soul, and the angels of heaven can see through those crystals to see what is happening inside each one of us...
After performing this singular observation, Adonai withdrew with satisfaction. My own interior castle, the abode of Klingsor, had been incinerated with the intimate fire...
Each one of us carries inside a fortress of leftist Witches’ Sabbaths. This is not ignored by the mahatmas...
Later, I had to clearly witness the tenebrous aspect of existence. It is clear that Satan has the power of ubiquity. Look at him within yourself, here, there, and everywhere...
When concluding the esoteric labors within the infernos of Neptune, I had then to ascend into the Empireum, the region of the Seraphim, who are creatures of love, direct expressions of the Unity...
Thus, this is how I re-conquered that hierarchial state in the heaven of Neptune, which is the universe of the divine Monads...
Unquestionably, I had attained the girdle of Hippolyte. One night among many, I evidenced this, then I danced with other ineffable beings in a cosmic festivity...
On another night, when floating in the Empireum, while in a Seraphic state, I asked my Mother for the lyre, which I then knew how to play with mastery... Samael Aun Weor
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.
The tetragrammaton Iod-Havah יהוה and HaElohim האלֹהים are one in the sephirah Daath דעת, as it is written:
"And you know (Vav-Iod-Daath וידעת) this day and consider it in thine heart, that Iod-Havah יהוה he is HaElohim האלֹהים in heaven above and upon the earth beneath; there is none else" - Deuteronomy 4: 39
The word HaElohim האלֹהים contains (two letters Hei ה) and the word Ve-Iod-Daath וידעת contains (the letters Iod י and Vav ו of) the divine name (Iod-Havah יהוה) to show that these two words are one and the same, and without distinction in nature or essence as implied in the words:
“And Elohim אלֹהים said Let there be Meoroth מארת (luminaries) in the firmament (the spinal medulla) of the heavens (HaShemayim השמים) to divide (Mi Moshe מי משה) the day (the heavens above) from (Mah מה, the heavens below) the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.” – Genesis 1: 14
The word Meoroth מארת (luminaries) is spelled without a Vav ו, being singular in its form to show that they, Iod-Havah יהוה and Elohim אלֹהים, are as one without any separation.
Thus, Meauroth מאורת, spelled without the letter Vav ו (is Meoroth מארת luminaries, and is called Elohim אלֹהים). Because in the resurrection, the letter Vav ו (symbol of the spinal medulla) in Malkuh, our physicality, is where Ath את (the Schekinah שכינה) ascends, as shown in "And Ath the earth" ואת הארץ." Therefore, Malkuth should be included within the term the heavens השמים.
Because the letter Vav ו also symbolizes the pillar of cloud by day (Mi מי, the heavens above) and the pillar of fire by night (Mah מה, the heavens below) going before Israel (the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים, the middle heaven) in the wilderness (BaMid’Bar במדבר), representing the divine Being (within the tree of life, which is the spinal medulla of either husband or wife). As it is written:
“And let them be for lights in the firmament (the spinal medulla) of the heaven to give light upon the earth (their physicalities).” - Genesis 1: 15
This explains the hidden meaning of:
“And a mist goes up as Manna from the earth ואד יעלה מן־הארץ (the earth, our physicalities); and watered the whole face (the head) of HaAdamah האדמה, the ground (our physicalities).” – Genesis 2: 6
“And the serpent (Vav-Hei-Nahash והנחש was cunning than all the beasts of the field which Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים had made.” - Genesis 3:1
Which refers to the sexual desires experienced by the female (polarity, the Iod יוד of Yesod יסוד, which is the Daleth ד of Ad אד, in the genitalia of our physicality) towards the male (polarity, the Yam ים or sea of marrow, the brain)."
So, VeAd ואד, the left serpent or Vav-Hei-Nahash והנחש, which is connected to either genitalia of Adam or Eve, acknowledged the divine union below (in Yesod, sex) and (through the orgasm of the beasts, black tantra) dragged the light from above (to develop the kundabuffer), a doctrine which has wrought great mischief and strife in the world. Adam and Eve ought to acknowledge distinction below but unity on high, that is, distinction of the divine Being from the earth (Vav-Hei וה), but unity of (Iod-Hei יה or Jah, in their) essence and nature which when recognized and universally acknowledged, then will the demon of evil and strife (Vav-Hei-Nahash והנחש) disappear from amongst mankind and have no longer power and influence in the earth.
The secret is that the serpent of desire is the blood that descends from the upper to the lower. That is, from the seraphim of Geburah, the heart, to Yesod, the genitalia; yes (Vav-Hei-Nahash והנחש) swims upon (VeAd ואד) our lower waters of Yesod, sex. Thus, (Vav-Hei-Nahash והנחש) went down to ensnare and ensnares fornicator people’s hearts in its net. As it is written:
“And Iod-Havah יהוה sent the seraphim serpents הנחשים השרפים among the people, and they bit the people; and many people of Israel died.” – Numbers 21: 6
"And Iod-Havah יהוה said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live." – Numbers 21: 8
(Chai חי, to live, is the hidden meaning of the tree of life, Otz Chayim עץ החיים, which is the Nes נס, pole or spinal medulla, where the Seraph שרף or the brazen serpent, Nahash HaNahashoth נחש הנחשת, must be set - Sim שים - upon. So, the Vav ו of the word VaSim ושים is their spinal medulla.) As it is also written:
"Let them be for luminaries מאורת in the firmament (the Vav ו or spinal medulla) of the heavens השמים.” - Genesis 1: 15
The word Aur אור (light) is also a symbol of the divine unity as its letters are in alphabetical sequence. Aleph א first, then Vav ו, followed by Reish ר. This, however, is not the case with the word Muth מות (death) in which the letters are found inverted. Mem מ being the thirteenth letter of the Alphabet, Vav ו the sixth and Th ת the twenty-second.
Now the word Meoroth מאורת is compounded of the two words Aur אור and Muth מות. If Aur אור be taken from it, Muth מת remains the symbol of death and separation. It was by these letters that Eve (the genitalia) became the cause of evil in the world as the scripture say:
“And when the woman saw (Aur אור) that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she (the genitalia through the orgasm of the beasts) took (Aur אור) of the fruit thereof, and did eat (Muth מות, death), and gave also unto her husband (the brain) with her (the genitalia); and he (the brain) did eat (Muth מות, death).” – Genesis 3: 6
She (the genitalia through the orgasm of the beasts, black tantra) took (Aur אור) from the word Meoroth מאורת and with the letters Mem and Th מת remained (dead), thus formed Muth, death, which then first entered into the world.
Then Rabbi Eleazar said: My father, we have learned that when the letter Mem מ was left, then Vav ו, the symbol of the tree of life, took its departure. Eve then took the letter Th ת and added it to Mem מ as it is said: "And she took and gave Muth מת (dead) to her husband" (Gen. 3: 6), and thus formed Muth מת (dead).
In order however to counteract its effects it is necessary to add further to it the letter Aleph א (symbol of the two letters Iod י, the two sexual polarities, above and below, divided by the letter Vav ו, the spinal medulla), whose numerical value is one and symbol of the divine Being. Muth מת (dead) then becomes Ameth אמת (truth), by which the world is saved.
Rabbi Simeon said: Happy art thou my son for the same explanation of the word has also been imparted to me.” - Zohar
