The Sixth Precept
We are teaching Kabbalah and Alchemy according to the book of Zohar . Related with the title, let us read in Hebrew letters the words פרו ורבו Paru V-Rabu or Parah Va-Rabah, which are commonly translated into English as "Grow and multiply" or "Be fruitful and multiply." Yet according to Alchemy we have translated פרו ורבו Paru V-Rabu as "Be fertile and a master," or "Be fertile and become a master," since in Hebrew the words פרה ורבה Parah Va-Rabah are associated with many meanings. So we will see, how the meaning of the sentence פרו ורבו Paru V-Rabu or פרה ורבה Parah Va-Rabah “Be fruitful, and multiply” is taken by different translations in a wrong way, and how these words should be alchemically translated. People have built upon “Parah Va-Rabah פרה ורבה" "Be fruitful, and multiply" different theories, beliefs and dogmas, because they do not have delve deeply into what Alchemy and Kabbalah explain about that sentence.
The different theories, concepts and dogmas that the different denominations, religions, sects, have made around the Bible, is really like that Golden statue that Nebuchadnezzar built according to the Book of Daniel, that between parenthesis is a book written in Aramaic, which is very close to Hebrew . Aramaic is the mother of the Hebrew language. Let us read what Master Samael Aun Weor quoted from the book of Daniel the prophet in his book Treatise of Sexual Alchemy:
“Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.
“Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
“Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
“Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
“Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of music, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.
“Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews. They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever. Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the golden image: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these (גברים Geborim) men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. Then they brought these (גברים Geborim) men before the king. Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, do not ye serve my goddess, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
“Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that Goddess that shall deliver you out of my hands?
“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our Goddess whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy goddess, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. - Daniel 3: 1-14
Indeed, the Aramaic words: אתון נורא יקדתא Athon Nora Yqdtha “burning fiery furnace,” enclose an Alchemical-Kabbalistic symbol that is understood when we know Kabbalah and Alchemy. But when ignoramuses read literally the former quotation, they then really believe that the three young men or גברים Geborim (bodies made of Geburah - fire) or Jews (bodies of Judah – Leo - fire), namely, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego who refused to kneel and to worship that statue, really existed physically, and that Nebuchadnezzar really threw them into a burning fiery furnace to punish them. Ignoramuses ignore that Daniel chapter 3 is just an Alchemical statement, because it is impossible for somebody of flesh and bone to be put into a burning fiery furnace and not to get burned. Comprehend that in Alchemy the word גברים Geborim addresses the superior existential fiery solar bodies of the Being. So, if we know Kabbalah and Alchemy, we understand the meaning of what we are reading. Moreover, אתון נורא יקדתא Athon Nora Yqdtha also means “burning fiery she-ass.” It is written:
"All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon a she-ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, and brought the she-ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon." - Matthew 21: 4, 7
Regardless, still people believe that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego were physical people that were put into the burning fiery furnace and who by the grace of God did not die. We, Gnostics , know that moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, relate to beliefs and false concepts, false theories, false dogmas from ignorant people, and that such beliefs and theories of the mind are what Daniel the prophet and Master Samael called the statue or image of gold. So, in other words, the statue of gold symbolizes mental images and the idols of the mind.
Usually, when people talk about idols, they think that an idol is a statue that somebody carved in their home and thus worship that statue as God, and that such is the meaning of worshipping an idol; yet, psychologically-kabbalistically-alchemically to worship an idol is not to see the real meaning of what you are reading in any sacred book. Thus, instead of following what is right, the truth of what is psychologically-kabbalistically-alchemically written, we start following an idea, an idol, namely, some mental image, or dogma, or theory, of belief, that we are building in our head, thus thinking that such idea is the way that the Bible or any sacred book is showing us. Thereafter, people who follow their false religious concepts gather with other people who think like themselves and form a denomination, thinking that their belief, which is an image and idol, is the only way to follow the truth that is written in the Bible or any sacred book. And, this is how, in this day and age, many biblical denominations exist, which ignore that they are worshiping idols, because they do not know that the word idol refers precisely to any false concept that we have carved, elaborated within our head. Indeed if we investigate our mind, we will also find that we have a lot of idols, namely, concepts, theories, from sacred writings that we had wrongly comprehended and which we think is the truth.
So, in a very strict alchemical-kabbalistic point of view, an idol is precisely a false intellectual concept. Thus, only by means of in-depth comprehension is how we know the truth of what we are reading, this, in order to stop worshiping idols; this is very difficult, especially when we are stuck in certain traditions and dogmas, which is precisely what the Book of Daniel shows us as the statue of gold that Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon built for the people to worship.
Let us read a quotation from the book Treatise of Sexual Alchemy in order for us to understand better; in it, there is an explanation that the Master Samael gives about it, showing us the way to comprehend things, so that we do not to interpret them in a wrong way:
“Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against (these threeגברים Geborim – fiery men) Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. And he commanded the most (גברים גברי Geborim Geburah) mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
“Then these (גברים Geborim - fiery) men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
“Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. And these three (גברים Geborim - fiery) men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
“Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three (גברים Geborim - fiery) men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four (גברים Geborim - fiery) men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” - Daniel 3: 19-25
“And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made (an image of gold of) it a den of thieves . And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.” - Matthew 21: 8-14
“Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of (אלהא עליא)
the most high Goddess, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire. - Daniel 3: 26
As we see, in Aramaic it is written אלהא עליא elah, elia, which means "the high goddess," but the Bible’s translators translated as "the most high God," even though the word אלהא elah means "goddess." So therefore, alchemically, we can see that it is related to the lower level of the Tree of Life, which is Yesod, the lower fluids of אלה Elah that need to עליא Elia, meaning, "go up, ascend, climb; rise; grow; flourish in our head;" because אל-הים El-HaYam is above in the pineal gland, and אלה-ים Elah-Yam is below in Yesod, the sexual glands.
“And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellers, being gathered together, saw these (גברים Geborim - fiery) men, upon whose bodies the (bestial) fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of (bestial) fire had passed on them.
“Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the Goddess of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his (מלאכה Melech) angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any - אלה Elah - goddess, except their own - אלה Elah - Goddess (the Bible translation says - except their own God)."
“Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the Goddess of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other Goddess that can deliver after this sort. Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, in the province of Babylon.” - Daniel 3: 27-30
The main alchemical point here is the word לאלההון L'alhhon, which contain the words אלה Elah (goddess) and האון Haun ("their own"; better said, “their און Aun – virility,”) why? Because אלה Elah and און Aun relate to the sexual fluids of Yesod, sex. Master Samael Aun Weor stated in the book Treatise of Sexual Alchemy the following:
“The statue of gold that the unhurt young Jews did not worship is the abominable food, the filthy food of Theosophy, Spiritism, pseudo-Rosicrucianism, Ferrierism, politics, and other food offered unto idols.
“That abominable food on Jezebel’s table is the statue of gold that the young unhurt men did not worship.
“The furnace was lit seven times. These are the seven distillations of Alchemy. These are the seven serpents that we must raise upon the reed. These are the seven days of our profound creation (seven days of Genesis).
“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego are the physical, Vital and Astral bodies. The fourth young man who was like the Son of God is the Christ-Mind of anyone who is liberated from the four bodies of sin. Therefore, it is necessary to ignite the fiery furnace seven times, in order to convert ourselves into kings and queens, into lords of the universe.” - Samael Aun Weor
So as you see here, we are explaining with this simple quotation the meaning of פרו ורבו Parah Va-Rabah, meaning, "Be fertile and a master," or "Be fertile and become a master." Since many people think, when they read literally the Book of Genesis, that פרו ורבו Parah Va-Rabah means "Be fruitful and multiply" or "Grow and multiply," and that such is a commandment given by God for the animals and the Human Being, because when God made them, he said: "Be fruitful, and multiply", listen, even if God would not have said "Grow and multiply", they would have instinctually done it anyhow, because God as substance is within the sexual creative force that is within every body, namely, in every physicality. The creative sexual force of Jehovah Elohim is the force or energy that mechanically multiplies any animal species in the physical world, including the intellectual animal, which is erroneously called human being. So, what Moses wrote in the Book of Genesis is an Alchemical sentence.
If we take פרו ורבו Parah Va-Rabah literally, as it is translated "Be fruitful, and multiply," then, we have to understand that such growing and multiplying that the Bible talks about in a very literal way, it does not relate to physical offspring, because even the millions of people who do not read the Bible, multiply and grow physically. But if we read Genesis as a book of Alchemy then we will understand that such statement is written for the alchemists. Thus, once you know the meaning of what we are teaching here, you have to grow, and multiply inside. In other words, one multiplies and grows, when one creates the גברים Geborim or superior existential fiery solar bodies of the Being. This is why Master Samael Aun Weor stated that the three young men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who were thrown in the fiery furnace symbolize the physical, vital and astral solar bodies. Solar, because this is how the Cosmic Solar Christ through the alchemists consciously create the human being within.
Remember that we already stated that the first serpent of fire that we awake through sexual Alchemy forms, in the internal worlds, from the finest atoms of the physical body, what is call the body of liberation. Let us read what Master Samael Aun Weor stated about the body of liberation:
"There are two types of flesh: One comes from Adam, and the other one does not come from Adam. The flesh that comes from Adam is vulgar and corruptible; the flesh that does not come from Adam is eternal and incorruptible.
"When the (fourth) igneous serpent of the Mental body (whose form is like the Son of God) reaches a certain canyon, the Master then dies and is born in life. Then, the divine Rabbi of Galilee, riding upon a donkey, enters the celestial Jerusalem with the newly liberated human being. The newly liberated human being, also riding upon a donkey, triumphantly and victoriously enters the city where he is received with palms and praises. The Master contemplates his body of clay that is crumbling into pieces, and the divine Rabbi of Galilee says to the newly liberated one, “You do not need that now.” From this instant, the Master is liberated from the wheel of birth and death. A new ultra-sensible physical body, filled with millenarian perfection, has been formed from the finest atoms of the physical body. It has the majestic appearance of the Cosmic Christ and is eternal and incorruptible. This vehicle that replaces the physical body of clay has been formed in the vital depth of our clay body, in the same manner that a chick is formed within the egg." - Igneous Rose by Samael Aun Weor
In the vital depth the second serpent builds To Soma Psychikon, which in Buddhism is called the bodhichitta. And the Astral body, or astral solar body that is being built in the third initiation of Major mysteries. And the fourth as Daniel (דניאל God is my judge) stated, appears as a miracle in the burning fiery furnace is the mental solar body that the alchemist is creating by means of sexual Alchemy. So, this is what the Bible, in Genesis, states as "Be fruitful, and multiply," alchemically speaking. We have to create all of these גברים Geborim, solar bodies within us by means of sexual transmutation, by transmuting the fires from Geburah.
There is a fifth body that appears as an angel, because Nebuchadnezzar says:
"Blessed be the Goddess of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his (מלאכה Melech) angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any אלה Elah goddess, except their own אלה Elah Goddess.”
That מלאכה Melech, angel or Malachim is Tiphereth. In other words, we find five bodies or גברים Geborim, the fifth one is the Human Soul, which is the מלאכה Melech, angel or Malachim. These are symbolized in the graphic and in the right side is a רבו rabbi or a priest that symbolizes the Monad.
Remember that it is stated that the Monad is a union of Buddhi and Atman or the Divine Soul and the Spirit, or what in Kabbalah we call Chesed and Geburah. Thus, Chesed and Geburah is represented by the Priest by the Rabbi with the book of Daniel in his hands. All of these images represent all the internal bodies that we have to create in order to reach the level of what the Bible called Rabbah and that is translated in English as Rabbi, master.
So, in other words, what this statement alchemically states is: “Grow up, be fruitful, multiply, become a master;” but if we read it literally, that is, if we interpret it literally, we think that we have to grow up physically and become a literal intellectual master or teacher, an instructor, a rabbi and to multiply, that is, to have physical offspring. That is absurd! Because in order to be spiritually fruitful and become a master, a rabbi, we have to harvest the fruits of the Tree of Life, and this is done when we know Alchemy. It is not by multiplying like any animal multiplies in the Earth, as you are going to spiritually harvest the fruits of the Tree of Life. But only by experiencing that growing in the alchemical sense; this how we understand what Genesis in the Bible states:
“And אל-הים El-HaYam blessed them, and אלה-ים Elah-Yam said unto them פרו ורבו Parah Va-Rabbi (Be fruitful (fertile), and a master), and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea (of Yesod-sex), and over the fowl of the air (Netzach), and over every living thing that moves upon the earth (or dry land of Hod).” - Genesis 1: 28
Yet, in order to replenish the earth, and subdue it we have to be blessed by Elohim:
“And Elohim blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl (archetypes) multiply in the earth.” - Genesis 1: 22
“Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas.” What waters, what seas? We learned that המים Ha-Mayim, the waters backwards is [Mi מי] and [Mah מה]; Ha-Mayim המים, these waters refers to the cerebrospinal fluid and our sexual fluids. Thereafter Ha-Mayim המים, the book of Genesis says: "בימים Be Mayim," "in the seas." Yet, "בימים Be Mayim," also means “the waters in me.”
The word מים Mayim, waters, is in המים Ha-Mayim "the waters" and also in בימים Be Mayim “the waters in me.” So, why is מים Mayim, waters repeated twice? Because, men and women have these two types of waters inside. And this is why in the end it says - "בימים Be Mayim," the waters in me. So, "בימים Be Mayim," is not addressing the waters outside, but inside of ourselves; since man and woman have these two waters inside their psychosomatic entity, their two waters together form the four rivers of Eden.
"And let fowl (angels) multiply in the Earth" – as we see this is another alchemical statement. Thus, if we understand that our physicality is Malkuth (the Earth) such statement is telling us "multiply your archetypes, multiply your fowl, your angelic forces within you, within your Earth. Because if we delve into our psychology, within our Earth, as we explained in other lectures, what are we going to discover? Angels? No! Within our psyche we only discover demons, namely, lust, anger, pride, envy, gluttony, laziness, yes, all of our defects are demons, inside of us.
Thus, what Genesis is telling us here is - multiply your angels, your virtues. The goal of Alchemy is to multiply spiritually. But, how are we going to multiply, if we are fornicating? How are we going to create the (גברים Geborim) or Superior Existential Fiery Solar Bodies of the Being that in the Book of Daniel were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace, which obviously is the furnace of sexual Alchemy between man and woman. Yes, in the sexual act is where we find that fire. And this is why, when man and woman transmute their sexual energy and do not fornicate, the smell of fire is not in them. In other words, the smell of passion, because lust is the symbol of that fire – passional animal fire that is obviously present in the sexual act.
When man and woman transmute their sexual energy, they multiply their fowl, their angels, they create the solar bodies inside of them. And that is precisely the meaning of "And let fowl (angels) multiply in the Earth" that the Precepts of Alchemy according to the Zohar is showing us.
In the graphic you find precisely how Mi מי and Mah מה relate to our spinal column. Mi מי, means “Who” in Hebrew , and relates to the head and to Daath. Mah מה, means “What” in Hebrew , and relates to Yesod, our sexual organs. In the middle, between Yesod and Daath, we have the spinal column, where the energy that in Sanskrit is call Kundalini or what Moses call the brazen serpent victoriously rises. The spinal column is what Moses calls Jacob's ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reaching to heaven, and where the angels of God ascend and descend. So, Jacob's ladder is the throne of Israel, our inner "אל El” God, the Son of the lunar waters of Isis and the solar water of Ra, which form the river of Eden that water the sexual act by parting into four heads, namely, Pison and Gihon, and Hiddekel and Euphrates, which fluids flow in the spinal column of man and woman respectively. Other sacred books have named these waters in different ways. Kundalini is the brazen serpent that rises in the spinal medulla of those who in the sexual act are working with their two waters. The seven chakras of Sushumna in the spinal medulla form precisely the firmament that the book of Genesis talks about. The book of Zohar states:
“'Let there be a firmament in the midst of 'the waters' המים Ha-Mayim.” – Genesis 1: 6
Observe the word המים Ha-Mayim; Mi מי the waters above and Mah מה the waters below within our psychosomatic system. The firmament is in the middle of them; that firmament is within the spinal column.
“By firmament it meant the interior Adam [Israel] who is [Vav, the spine] receptive of [Daath] the knowledge of spiritual truths (Daath, the waters above), and of earthly or alchemical things (Yesod, the waters below)."
“ Mi מי (who) shall heal thee! This is the highest scale of the mystery--the mystery of the being, upon whom depended all things. He shall heal and strengthen thee.
“Mi מי of the heavens above is the highest pole [the cerebral spinal fluid], Mah מה of the heavens below is the lower pole [the genital fluids], and the heritage of Jacob [the letter Vav, the spine, which is the ladder that] stands between these extremities of the heavens.
“And the middle bar [the spine] in the midst of the [torax] boards shall pass through from end to end.” - Exodus 26: 28
The former quotation of Exodus 26: 28 addresses the tents, made in the wilderness, the boards, how we have to build them; thus, if we know Alchemy, we know that it is addressing the physical body; the torax are the boards, and the middle bar is the main point of support, which is the spinal column that holds the boards of the torax, which forms your chest and your back.
“Let המים Ha-Mayim, the waters be gathered together in one place”; that is, [Vav, the spine] Israel who accepted the law [of Chastity], and "let the dry land or barren element appear"; that is, the fornicator people who, unwilling to receive the law [of Chastity], have remained [spiritually] barren and sterile. - Zohar
Only in the sexual act can we gather the waters together in one place; but this does not mean that man and woman do it by fanatically accepting the law, by reading the books; no! It is referring to those who accept the law of Chastity, which we are talking about - the law of Alchemy.
“And let the dry land or barren element appear" has two meanings, namely, the dry land that appears will be the outcome of sexual transmutation - our inner bodies, the גברים Geborim who will eventually appear; and the other meaning is what the Zohar states: dry land or barren element are those who do not follow the laws of sexual Alchemy (Chastity), dry land or barren element are people that worship the statue of gold, people who within their heart think that belief is the way to worship God, people who think that by believing in something that has no sense they will be saved. Because if we put our senses to work, we would say: “How is it that those three young men went into the burning fiery furnace and did not get burnt? And how did the fourth man appeared? And who is that angel that was sent?” And that happens in the time of Daniel in Babylon.
Daniel is Dan, which means "justice," which relates to the sephirah Geburah and to גברים Geborim, the children of Elohim Gibor. All of this is telling us something hidden that we should learn, and not to take everything literally, but Alchemically and Kabbalistically in order to understand; this is why, we quoted the Zohar and wrote our explanations in order for you to see that it is in relation with yourself, with your psychosomatic Being, namely, psycho - from the psyche, which means your soul; and soma - body, which means not only the physical body, but all the bodies that we have to build within. So this explanation was necessary in order for us to understand what is coming next. Let us read the Zohar again:
"And Elohim said: Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters" – Genesis 1: 6
The word אלהים Elohim is composed of two words אל EL and הים Ha-Yam, which signify The-Sea-God or The-Water-God. The word הים Ha-Yam “the Sea” has the same letters as ימה Yamah “sea”, by which the scripture teaches that all division of opinion [in the head], symbolized by the feminine term sea ימה Yamah, is right and just when its object is the glory of אלה Elah the divine [female], as then אל-הים El-Ha-Yam, “The-Sea-God” becomes united to אלה-ים Elah-Yam “the Sea Goddess”.
In other words in Christian terms we will say this is how the Holy Spirit is united with Mary, which is the same symbol.
“When, however, this is not so, [אל el and אלה elah – God and goddess, Abba and Aima Elohim] remain separated and detached and ימה Yamah or הים Ha-Yam “the Sea”, then symbolizes the great ocean or abyss of darkness in which Hell is enshrouded and concealed.
“When המים ha-mayim the [sexual] waters [of אלה-ים elah-yam – the sea-goddess] became separated [into male female], then אל-הים el-ha-yam, the-sea-God interposed and became the point of union between them, and harmony prevailed and dissension ceased. The waters above the firmament, the male part; those below, the female. Those above [the cerebrospinal fluid] were designated אל-הים el-ha-yam the-sea-God, and distinguished by the first letter Hei ה in the divine name יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei; those below [the genital fluids of אלה-ים elah-yam – the sea-goddess] were called אדני Adonai, the Lord [better said, אדניה Adonia, ימה yamah or ima, the lordess], which is characterized by the second letter Hei ה in the divine name יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei.
“Although the mediation of אלהים Elohim took place on the second day, unity and harmony did not begin to prevail only on the third day when, as the scripture states: "Elohim saw that the third day was good," which is not affirmed in the first and second days of the work of Genesis. - Zohar
When we read the second day in the book of Genesis, we read: “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters,” yet, when we read the end of the second day, it does not say: "And God saw that it was good." And in the first day it does not say that it was good either. Only when we read the third day, we read that Genesis start saying: "And God saw that it was good,” and we read it twice; this is because the creation of the Astral body is good above and below.
This means that we can rise the serpent in the physical body and in the vital body, and we will say that this is OK, but alchemically speaking only by rising the third serpent is how we create the Astral body and that is not OK, but good for your Inner Being and for you. And this is what alchemically is stated in the third day.
It was in the third day [third initiation of major mysteries] that the letter Vav ו entered in the divine name and took up its position between the two letters Hei ה. This interposition and mediation of אלהים Elohim, between המים Ha-Mayim the waters above and those below the [letter Vav. the] firmament, is further symbolized by the waters of the river Jordan in Joshua 3: 15-17. - Zohar
“And as they that bare the ark (of Chastity) were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark (of Chastity) were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overflows all his banks all the time of harvest,) that the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho. And the priests that bare the ark of (Chastity of) the ברית־יהוה Brith of Iod-Havah stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.” - Joshua 3: 15-17
This is textually from the book of Jesus, because יהושע Joshua means savior in Hebrew and "Jesus" is the English of the Greek transliteration of "Yehoshua" via Latin. So after the five books of Moses we find the book of Joshua, yet in Gnosticism we call it the book of Jesus, because Joshua is Jesus in English. So in Joshua or Jesus Chapter 3, Verse 15-17, is where Joshua or Jesus is taking all the archetypes of Israel through the River Jordan, which the Zohar states is the firmament and the waters of the River Jordan or the spinal column. The transition of passing all the forces that we have below in our physicality, which is Israel, into the other land, into the other side, is a long process of Alchemy, and Joshua or Jesus does it, because Joshua or Jesus means savior; so יהושע Joshua means - savior. The Zohar continues:
"With reference to the sixth precept contained in the words "Increase and multiply," פרו ורבו Parah Va-Rabah (in Hebrew ), the one who conforms thereto increases the waters of Nahera – נהרה."
The Hebrew word Nahera נהרה derives from נהר Naher, which means river; Nahera contains the letter ה Hei at the end, it relates to your river in your ה Hei, your physicality, this is why it is called Nahera, which in Hebrew means brightness, light. So the river that the book of Genesis talks about is not an ordinary river. Remember that the river Nahera was divided into foreheads, which we previously addressed.
The Zohar is not stating here that the proof that we are doing this alchemical sexual work with the celestial river of life which never become dried up, but rather augmented by the birth of children, meant, to have five, six, seven, eight and more children of Fornication in this physical world. No, no, no!
God said, “Be fruitful and multiply.” God did not say, “Be fruitful and fornicate.” Therefore, seminal ejaculation is a crime; seminal ejaculation is brutal Fornication. In ancient times, in paradise, reproduction was performed without seminal ejaculation, without the orgasm of man or woman.
The tenebrous lucifers of the ancient Earth-Moon taught the humans how to ejaculate the semen. This is how humans lost their powers. This is represented by Adam and Eve’s departure from Eden. Therefore, Gnosis does not teach anything that goes against Nature. Not spilling the semen is what is natural, what is normal. Hence, Gnosis does not teach sexual refinement, it teaches what is truly natural and normal.
People are slanderous regarding this subject, because the philosophical stone is the stumbling stone; it is sex. It is the offensive rock for the evil ones. Evil ones hate Sexual Magic. All that abolishes the simple satisfaction of their carnal passions repulses them. This is why they feel repugnance towards Chastity. Such is the law of these poor people. They live for the joy of carnal passion and they hate Chastity. - Samael Aun Weor
Therefore, the augment of the birth of children from the celestial river of life, which never becomes dried up, is the birth of the Beni Elohim or children of God, children of transmutation, the birth of the גברים Geborim, which are the superior existential fiery solar bodies of the Being. And if we want a proof of it, we will have it when we experience the birth of our Astral body, when we start building it and when our solar bodies start appearing within us; that will be the proof that we are utilizing the Nahera or Naher, river of Eden from the book of Genesis in the right way. The Zohar continues:
"Every human soul (Tiphereth), when it descends on to the earth plane (Malkuth), is accompanied by two attendant angels, one on the right side of it (Netzach), the other on the left (Hod), as it is said: "He shall give his angels charge concerning thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." (Psalm 91: 11)." - Zohar
You see, those angels that the book of Zohar or the Psalm 91: 11 is addressing, are not angels coming from certain heavenly places, no. It means that when a Human Soul, which is Tiphereth, descends on the Earth in our physicality, it is because that individual already reached the fifth initiation, then the Human Soul enters into the physicality through the door of Yesod accompanied by two angels, in other words, the two solar bodies that Solomon the king mention as: "Angels of Netzach and Hod establish me upon the cubic stone of Yesod;" because obviously, Jacob has to be established upon the cubic stone of Yesod in order to reach Tiphereth, which is Israel. So, first we reach Hod and Netzach, which are those sephiroth that relate to the two angels that Psalm 91: 11 talks about.
"If, however, the human soul does wrong, they become his accusers". - Zohar ; In other words, if "he, Adam, expels out את Ath; he places at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim. - Genesis 3: 24
That is unquestionable, because Hod, the Astral body is related with emotions, and Netzach, the Mental body is in relation with the mind. Thus, if we start doing wrong things with our psychological elements (egos) through our mind or through our heart, the cherubim become our accusers. This is why it is also written:
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I Iod-Havah, thy Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto (Hod and Netzach) the third and fourth generation of them that hate me." - Exodus 20: 4, 5
The third and fourth generation relate to the sephiroth Hod and Netzach. So if you behave wrong in Yesod, "who" is going to accuse you; this is why, when Gnostics come and behave in a wrong way in Yesod, they think that we are going to accuse them. Who are we in order to accuse anybody? Their own negative emotions and mental negative thoughts are accusing them already in Yesod before their own God.
So if you are following the right path, God knows it, because your emotions are handled in the right way and your mind (your thoughts) also. If you are not doing it, they are accusing you. So that is the alchemical statement from the Zohar that we have to understand. These two angels also relate to those two alchemical forces named Yin and Yang or Ida and Pingala. Thus, after that statement said by Shimon bar Yochai, another rabbi, the Master Pinchus continue saying in the Zohar :
“There really are three protecting angels to a good human soul as we read: "If there be a Malach with him, or an interpreter, one among a thousand to plead his uprightness." - Job 33:23
Behold here - this is very important to understand. If there really are three protecting angels, this means that we also have three accusers, not only two, because Tiphereth, the Causal body is above Netzach, the Mental body and Hod, the Astral body. But why is Hod "One among a thousand,"? We explained in other lectures that thousand in Hebrew is Aleph, and this is why "One among a thousand," is the Astral body. Why the Astral body?
Because, “I believe in the Son, the Cosmic Chrestos, the powerful astral mediation that links our physical personality with the supreme immanence of the Solar Father.”
"We transmute the Christonic semen into a subtle Christic energy. Thus, within our Astral (lunar) body we form a sublime vehicle, a superior Astral body, which is the I-Christ, by means of sexual Alchemy (read our book Treatise of Sexual Alchemy).
“Christ said: “Of a thousand that seek me, one finds me; of a thousand that find me, one follows me; of the thousand that follow me, one is mine.”
Can you see the arithmetic, kabbalistic and alchemical progression of "One among a thousand"? Listen, the secret of this statement is א Aleph, because in Hebrew Aleph means thousand, and the value of the letter Aleph is one. So, the meaning of this progression is: out of those who search for this alchemical-kabbalistic truth one finds it hidden in Aleph - it is further stated. And out of those who find the truth hidden within Aleph, one follows it; and out of of those who follows it, one creates the Astral body.
When people read the former progression, they always imagine a thousand people looking for the Lord and finally one find it. No! Thousand is Aleph that is the symbol of the spinal column, because the letter Aleph is a letter Vav with two Iods: one above and the other below. These two Iods symbolize the two waters: the head and the sex, and the spinal medulla (the letter Vav) dividing them. This means that the one who finds that the alchemical aspect of this doctrine relates to the alchemical symbol of Aleph, is the one that will follow it through sexual Alchemy, and the one who among a thousand will create the Astral body; thus, this Zohar statement “One among a thousand” is the Astral body, because it is the first solar body that appears from the letter Aleph, which is the spinal column and its two waters. The Astral body is the first one among Aleph, among a thousand. Of course, there are three Alephs, three thousands or three spines, namely, physical, vital and astral; so this is what Kabbalistically-Alchemically we understand, when we read "One among a thousand."
“Rabbi Simeon replied and said: As a matter of fact there are five guardian angels to each person, for the scripture further proceeds:
"He will be gracious unto him and will say: Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom." - Job 33:24
Yet, you might ask, why “he will say” that denotes the fifth, is Malkuth, the physical body? Well, It is because I am saying it, and I am here physically before you, this is what you have to understand.
Then said Rabbi Pinchus: Thy words are not altogether exact, for as much as "He will be gracious" refers to the Holy One [Binah, the Holy Spirit], since compassion and graciousness belong only to Him [in Daath and Yesod]. Thou speakest truly, replied Rabbi Simeon, for whoever ignores the precept "be fertile and multiply" obstructs the flow or course of [Nahera – נהרה] the celestial river of life [better said, river of light] and thus violates and profanes the [Iod above and below of the Vav of Aleph, the spine, the] holy covenant. Of such it is written:
"They shall go forth and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against me." - Isaiah 66: 24
Against me," because this is a sin against God [the Holy Spirit in Yesod]. The souls of such people will never enter unto [Tiphereth] the palace of the King [Melech], but be cast forth to live and dwell [among the carcasses] in [Klipoth, the pit] the darkness and error of [fornicators in] earth life. - Zohar
Do you comprehend? Do you understand? The statement that Rabbi Pinchus is saying, which is apparently a contradiction, yet, it is not because Yesod, the vital body really relates to the fourth angel, but also relates to the Holy One, Binah, because when we study the Tree of Life, we know that Binah rules Yesod. And whosoever breaks in Yesod (the Holy Covenant), which is the Covenant of Fire, the pact of fire, which is [ברית-אש Brit-Esh], which is an anagram of בראשית Bereshyth. Thus, ברית-אש Brit-Esh is Genesis or בראשית Bereshyth, meaning a pact of fire that we perform during the sexual act; it is not a pact of fire as when somebody puts his hand in a fire and gets burnt, and another one says: "This is a pact that we are doing here with fire", no. The pact of fire that we are talking about here is when a man and a woman during the sexual act perform sexual Alchemy.
So, ברית-אש Brit-Esh is the covenant of fire, by means of which we walk on the path and the door of the path is in Yesod, because Yesod relates to the sexual organs, to the lower waters, which are the genital fluids. So, if we break ברית-אש Brit-Esh the covenant of fire, we are then breaking the law against Binah Elohim, which is the Holy Spirit, and this is why it says “Against me, because this is a sin against God [the Holy Spirit in Yesod], because obstructs the flow or course of [Nahera – נהרה] the celestial river of life. This is why Jesus, the Great Rabbi from Galilee said :
"Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin (in Yesod) and blasphemy (in Daath) shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaks a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaks against (Aleph) the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come." - Matthew 12: 31, 32
And this is because the fire of the Holy Ghost that develops in our spine emerges from our upper and lower waters. This is precisely what Paul the Rabbi from Tarsus said:
"The one who is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee Fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that commits Fornication sinned against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." - 1 Corinthians 6: 17-20
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” - Romans 6: 23
Thus if we fornicate, we break the law against the Holy Spirit, as it is written in Genesis 2: 17: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die;” which is precisely a beautiful alchemical statement.
For a better understanding let us read what Master Samael Aun Weor wrote about Nahera, the river of light, in his Book Igneous Rose:
"The hierarchies related with the elemental department of the fig tree are responsible for applying the karma to all evil ones, sodomites, and to all sexually degenerated ones who are so abundant in this humanity.
"The name of the governing Angel of this elemental department of Nature is נהרה Nahera.
"The elementals of this elemental department of the fig tree use white tunics, and are children of extraordinary beauty. The white tunic represents Chastity and sanctity.
"The members of all the spiritualist schools hate Chastity and they skillfully avoid it by searching for an escape through the false door of their theories. Their same weakness, their same lack of willpower, causes them to search for subtle escapes in order to avoid the problem of Chastity." - Samael Aun Weor
The fig tree appears in many parables in the New Testament. Let us read what Jesus the Great Rabbi of Galilee said in the Gospel of Mathew and Luke:
"Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!" - Matthew 21: 18-20
"And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away." - Luke 21: 29-33
If we read the first quotation literally, we might think that Jesus the Great Rabbi from Galilee was walking on the streets, and hungered, etc., and because he found no figs on a fig tree, he selfishly curses the fig tree; such would be a ludicrous interpretation. We must understand that both quotations are parables.
“...Every tree therefore which brings not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire.”- Luke 3:9. Fornicators are sterile fig trees who are hewn down and cast into the fire.
"The fig tree symbolizes the feminine sexual forces (of Yesod) that we must learn how to control. The rooster and the fig tree represent the sexual forces. This is why the rooster of Christ’s Passion cannot be absent from the drama of Calvary. The fig tree solely represents the feminine sexual forces. It is impossible to reach deep realization without the Alchemy of the feminine solar forces." - Samael Aun Weor
The fig tree symbolizes the feminine sexual waters, whether in a male or female body. If we are using the sexual feminine waters in the wrong way, Nahera knows it; Nahera is the angel that control the forces of the fig tree, which are connected to all the sexual genitalia of all men and women. When you clairvoyantly see the forces, the magnetic electricity force that enters in the fig tree, you discover that it is the same sexual force, same energy that vibrates in our genitalia, whether we are male or female. And that is why those elementals that dwell in those fig tree apply the karma to those who use those fluids in the wrong way. And that is why the Bible that is a book of wisdom, tell us in the second chapter of the Book of Genesis about the river נהרה Nahera that in Genesis is נהר Naher - river. However in the book of Ezra is נהרה Nahera.
"The copy of the letter that Tatnai, governor on this side of נהרה Nahera (the river), and Shetharboznai, and his companions the Apharsachites, which were on this side of - נהרה Nahera - the river, sent unto Darius the king. - Ezra 5: 6
Thus, נהרה Nahera is the sacred name of the angel that governs the elemental hierarchies of the fig tree that the Master Samael Aun Weor unveiled. So, נהרה Nahera is precisely the river of solar light that descends from Chokmah, the Solar Logos, and which in Eden divides as we already explained, into four heads. We explained that those four heads related to the two sexual waters of man and woman. So we hope that you red the previous lectures in order to understand what we are explaining here, because it is necessary for you to read, especially, the lecture Prakriti, Elohim in order to understand the sixth precept.
So after having understood the sixth precept, which according to Catholic Christianity relates to the sixth commandment “You shall not fornicate.” Let us now study the seventh precept, since the sixth precept throws light into the seventh in order to understand it better.
The Seventh Precept
This relates to the sexual resurrecting initiatic transition suffered by the children of God from the seven lower sephiroth into the eighth sephirah Binah, alchemically speaking. We know that there are a lot of Orthodox denominations that circumcise their babies at the eighth day. Yet, this is just a symbol, like the symbol of baptism that is celebrated in all religions; circumcision is also a symbol that is always related with sexual Alchemy, sexual transmutation. The circumcision or the complete removal of animal desire by which bodily impurity is taken away, happens in the qualification of the eight Venustic initiation. We talked about circumcision in a previous lecture, where we explained how the initiate has to qualify the eight initiation after annihilating all the ego, all the lust.
Remember that Binah is the Holy Spirit. Binah is the eight sephirah when counting the sephiroth from Malkuth, the bottom of the Tree of Life. So, the Zohar is talking about the descent of souls from the celestial regions of Binah, the first triangle of the Tree of Life into the earth, or physical body, one of those souls - "the eighth in order, is termed Chaiah חיה (living soul).
"This is the (esoteric) reason why circumcision is performed on the eighth day of birth. In the ancient book of Enoch, the course of [Nahera נהרה] the celestial river of life [better said, heavenly river of light] is described as resembling the letter Iod י (or creative shakti potential) which enters into the composition of the seventy-two (7+2 = 9) divine names imprinted on the body of a child (of God) at time of birth, and denotes its purity." - Zohar
This means that from the celestial regions of Binah, Iod-Havah Elohim, the Holy Spirit, has formed with the archetypes of Malkuth, that is, with the dust of the ground, a new physical body. This is a new ultra-sensible physical body, filled with millenarian perfection, that has been formed within Yesod, the fourth dimension. This new physical body has been formed from the finest atoms of Malkuth, the physical body, during the qualification of the eighth Venustic initiation or during the process of resurrection that occurs in the eighth day. Those resurrected bodies are for those souls that have become living souls, for the reason of having been united with the soul Chaiah חיה, Binah. These souls have imprinted in their resurrected physicalities the 72 names of Iod-Havah Elohim, which means, that they are souls incarnated in the kingdom of Binah, located in Yesod, the ninth sephirah (7+ 2 = 9), thus they are pure souls from Binah that come forth to be incarnated on the earth in Yesod or promised land.
Genesis 2: 7 states:
Regardless, when ignoramuses read the former quotations, they think that Zohar and Genesis are addressing any child that when is born and circumcised, keep all the 72 names of God, because by means of circumcision bodily impurity is taken away. Yet, alchemically, what we stated here, is what circumcision means. Remember that the resurrection of Christ happens after the Sabbath, it happens in the eighth day or Resurrection Sunday. It is written:
"And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many." - Matthew 27: 52, 53
The former quotations mean that the body of any soul or initiate that reaches the qualification of the Eight Venustic Initiation of Major Mysteries, resurrects and becomes a holy city or heavenly Jerusalem, and form part of the third selection of the Exodus. We already explained that the first selection for the Exodus is formed by all of us that share this knowledge, by all of the souls that study this doctrine, we are members of the first selection. We also stated that the second selection is form by those who reach the fifth initiation of Major Mysteries, and who after having taken the direct path, receive the initiation of Tiphereth. They eventually will be members of the third selection. Because the third selection is related with the seventh precept, which means resurrection with the Body of Adam.
“The resurrection with the mortal body of Adam, though more painful due to the return into this valley of bitterness, is because of this more glorious. All the adepts of the secret path who form the Guardian Wall have resurrected with the Body of Adam.” - Samael Aun Weor
We cannot accept that any ordinary baby from any religion that is the outcome of seminal ejaculation, has the 72 names of God written in their body, as many ignoramuses will assert; or that all the Israelites that are born in this world have the 72 names of God imprinted in their physicalities. No! It is not like that, because how could any sinful soul have the 72 names of God while having their ego alive? That is incongruence, it cannot be. Only those who annihilate the totality of their ego, only those who died on the alchemical cross, as symbolized by Master Jesus, can enter into the Earth, that is, into the new Jerusalem, or new physicality.
By means of the alchemical cross we annihilate the whole ego and thereafter we pass through the process of resurrection. The cross symbolizes the phallus and the uterus united during sexual Alchemy, or the four rivers of Eden, which during the process of sexual transmutation become the celestial river of life that Enoch described as resembling the letter י Iod; the letter Iod is the Shakti potential or Solar energy, which enters into the composition of the seventy-two divine names imprinted on the resurrected body of a soul at the time of his resurrection. Only after resurrection the 72 names of God are imprinted in the body.
Thus, when all of the archetypes of Israel within the resurrected master are gloriously shining, we then could say: "This soul is pure." Moses is a resurrected master, that has the 72 names of God imprinted in his own body; Jesus, Mohamed, Buddha, Quetzalcoatl, and all these great resurrected masters who have no ego within, all of them have the 72 names of God imprinted in their bodies, because they are pure, but to state that all of us have those 72 names of God, because of the fact that we were physically circumcised is ludicrous.
For circumcision has value if you observe the law (of Chastity), but if you (fornicate, you) break the law, you have become as though you had not been circumcised. So then, if those who are not circumcised keep the law (of Chastity), will they not be regarded as though they were circumcised? The one who is not circumcised physically and yet obeys the law (of Chastity) will condemn you who, even though you have the written code and physical circumcision, are a (fornicator a) lawbreaker. For you are not a true Jew just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the physical ceremony of circumcision. But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. - Romans 2: 25-29; let us continue studying the Zohar :
אליהו Eliao, Elijah (God IAO)
On the head, the top of the spinal column, the Tree of Life, vibrates אל El, which in Hebrew means God, a name that in the world of Atziluth relates to Chesed. Many times we have stated that the cerebrospinal system is the throne of אל El, the throne of the Innermost, the throne of Chesed, our own particular Spirit.
The letter י Iod, which sound is eee, vibrates in the pineal gland, the middle of the brain. The letter הא Hei hides Aleph whose sound is "aaah," which vibrates in the thymus gland, behind the heart. The letter ו Vav, which in Hebrew sounds "o" vibrates at the very bottom of the spine, in Yesod, in the sexual organs. When we read all of these letters from top to the bottom we read אליהו Eliao. And who is אליהו Eliao? אליהו Eliao is translated into English as Elijah, the prophet.
"IAO - the Holy Spirit, is needed in order - for אל El, Chesed - to be a Prophet. The Seer of - IAO - the Seer is Chesed, the Innermost. The Prophet of - IAO – the Prophet is Chesed, the Innermost. The luminous visions of our disciples come from - IAO – the Divine Hierarchies. However, if our disciples surrender themselves to Fornication and take the dark path, they walk far from the path of the Prophets and they become Diviners. Their dreams are then dreams from the abyss. They are vain dreams, and their tenebrous predictions lamentably fail. The Prophets - of IAO – are Masters of the venerable White Lodge. Diviners are the dark magicians, tenebrous seers, prophets of the Baalim who eat at Jezebel’s table, teaching Fornication and how to eat things sacrificed unto idols." - Samael Aun Weor
Let us read what the Zohar states about אליהו Eliao:
"And אל-הים El-HaYam said (from Binah), Let the waters (of Yesod) bring forth abundantly (by means of sexual Alchemy) Nephesh Chaiah נפש חיה, living souls, and fowl that may fly above the earth on the face of the firmament of heaven." - Genesis 1: 20
The words: “And fowl that shall fly above the earth” allude to אליהו Eliao, Elijah, who (in the cerebrospinal system) is present whenever the rite of circumcision (better said, the rite of Sexual Magic) is performed, when a throne or seat is formed and set specially for him (in our spine) by pronouncing the words: "This is El IIIIIAAAAOOOO, Elijah's throne." If this is neglected, אליהו Eliao does not attend (does not seat on his throne).
So when we read this literally, we might think that Zohar is addressing the prophet אליהו Eliao, Elijah, No! Zohar is addressing your spinal column, which is where those birds or fowl fly above the Earth, your physicality, they fly in your firmament, which is within your spinal column, which are the Malachim (Angels) that you build with the Solar Light, the Solar Logos - El IIIIIAAAAOOOO, during your sexual transmutation.
“The great IAO is the power from the Logos itself. The little IAO is the power from the human being. The great IAO is the power from the Super-Man. The minor IAO is the power from Man.” - The Gnostic Bible: The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor
Therefore, Zohar says that the fowl that may fly above the earth on the face of the firmament of heaven is אליהו Eliao, Elijah, because אליהו Eliao, Elijah is the Solar Logos - El IIIIIAAAAOOOO. And those fowl or angels are: the Astral body, Mental body and Causal body, which are in relation with the sephiroth Hod, Netzach and Tiphereth.
And where is the power of the minor אליהו Eliao, Elijah? The power of the minor אליהו Eliao, Elijah is in our ה Hei, our physicality, it is the power related with the creation that we are doing with the Solar Logos, with the Solar Light with the great אליהו Eliao, Elijah. In other words, the power of the minor אליהו Eliao, Elijah is אל El, Chesed, our Monad, namely, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who creates in the spinal medulla, his own throne, by means of the ש Shin-fire of יהו IAO which is within השמים Ha-Schamayim, the two male female waters of Heaven; such is the minor אליהו Eliao, Elijah. So if we reach the level of Tiphereth, mastery, then the minor אליהו Eliao, Elijah will descend and seat in his throne, the spinal column. The chair, the throne of the minor אליהו Eliao, Elijah is the central nervous system.
But if we read Zohar literally, we might think that we need an empty chair for the prophet אליהו Eliao, Elijah to seat in the moment when the baby is being physically circumcised. Such is a wrong interpretation of the Zohar , as the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; thus they stand before the image that their mind had set up and fall down and worship such assumption or intellectual image, statue of gold that their fanatic minds carved and before which they fanatically fall down. Yet Mater Samael Aun Weor stated:
“IAO is the powerful mantra or magic word that when practicing Sexual Magic the man must chant along with his priestess spouse.
"The sound of the three powerful vowels must be prolonged like this: IIIIIIIIIII, AAAAAAAAAA, OOOOOOOOOO, that is to say, extending the sound of each vowel. The air is inhaled to fill the lungs, then one exhales it. One inhales counting to twenty, holds the air counting to twenty, and then exhales vocalizing the letter I (pronounced like a long e, as in the word bee]. When exhaling one also counts to twenty. Repeat the same procedure for the letter A and then continue with the letter O. Do this seven times. ” - The Perfect Matrimony
This is why, Genesis says: “And fowl that shall fly above the earth on the face and on the firmament of heaven” alluding to אליהו Eliao, Elijah, IAO the Logos, the solar light, which in the cerebral spinal nervous system is present whenever the rite of Sexual Magic is performed, “when a throne or seat is formed and set specially for him by pronouncing the words: "This is El IIIIIAAAAOOOO, Elijah's throne." This is how it is literally written in the Zohar .
However, whenever the rite of circumcision is performed, when a throne or seat is formed and set specially for אליהו Eliao, Elijah and if nobody sits there; symbolically it is OK, but if we take that literally and as face value, thinking that that is the true meaning of it, is wrong. Listen, comprehend, Elijah's throne is the spinal column - that is Elijah's sit, which is the throne of the Innermost.
In other words, in the eighth day, the initiate still has some lustful animal elements that he needs to eliminate, thus he needs to pass through the rite of circumcision in the eighth initiation, in the eight day, under the sight of a specialist Master who observe and examine him clairvoyantly, in order to see if אליהו Eliao, Elijah is seated in his throne, thus, that master will clairvoyantly examine his spinal column, and will see the solar light in it. If any lustful ego continue existing within this initiate; if there is only one lustful element he cannot resurrect, thus, he needs to pass through the rite of circumcision, meaning, he needs to practice his rite of Sexual Magic until lust is cut off completely from him. Such is precisely the symbol, the beautiful symbol of circumcision. If this is neglected אליהו Eliao, Elijah does not attend, and it is because אליהו Eliao, Elijah symbolizes the Innermost purified, who is Chesed at the right side of the Tree of Life. So, if Chesed does not attend to the eighth initiation, who is going to resurrect? The ego? The psychological aggregates of lust? Remember, if you count the Sephiroth from the bottom of Malkuth to the top, the seventh is Chesed and that is what Zohar is addressing as אליהו Eliao, Elijah. So, if אליהו Eliao, Elijah is there, then he can enter into the eighth initiation, which is Binah, after passing through the abyss, which is Daath from Chesed to Binah. And that is precisely how we enter into the third selection of the Exodus. But we cannot enter into the third selection of the Exodus if אליהו Eliao, Elijah is not seated on his throne that we are addressing here alchemically speaking, because it is Chesed, the one, that enters into the higher selection by uniting himself with Binah Elohim, and becoming an Elohim. Furthermore, we read:
"And אל-הים El-HaYam (Binah) created the great whales, and every living and moving creature, which the waters (of Yesod) brought forth abundantly, according to their sex, and every winged fowl according to their sex. And אל-הים El-HaYam saw that it was good." - Genesis 1: 21
"And Elohim created great whales or fishes," alluding to the two great fishes called Leviathan, symbolizing the male and female [sexual] principles that manifest themselves [in המים Ha-Mayim the waters above and below] in every part of the creation (during sexual Alchemy).
The words: “And every living soul” refer to the sacred name imprinted on the bodies of all incarnated souls coming from [Binah, from] the celestial region called Chaiah חיה. “Which המים Ha-Mayim the waters brought forth abundantly," denotes the letter Iod (י) with which, as a sign [of shakti], the angels above are distinguished from demons below, and also the (archetypes or) children of Israel from other people of the earth, that is to say, the fornicators and idolatrous. Blessed is the lot (or Iod י) of Israel! - Zohar
When you read that the children of Israel are distinguished from other people (other nations) of the earth, you might think that Zohar is addressing the Israelites, the people from the Middle East, from the state called Israel, who are different, who are distinguished themselves, because they have that Iod in themselves. No! Zohar is not talking about them. Zohar is talking about the archetypes, is talking about Alchemy, is talking about transmutation - that is what distinguish Israel from other nations, because Israel develops in the spinal column. The children of Israel are the archetypes that we gather by means of whole sexual alchemical work that we are performing. That is why the Book of Zohar finishes saying: "the angels above are distinguished from demons below, and also the (archetypes or) children of Israel from other people of the earth, that is to say, the fornicators and idolatrous. Blessed is the lot (or Iod י) of Israel" What is the Iod י of Israel? Israel is Tiphereth, Tiphereth is ruled by the Sun, the Sun is Solar light. Those archetypes are related to Chokmah "Blessed is the lot of Israel!" Those are the blessings that we have to receive if we perform the sexual alchemical work that we are explaining here. But if we read literally, we will think: "Oh, blessed be the lod of those people that live in the Middle East", and that is wrong. If they perform the work of Alchemy that the Zohar is teaching here - of course, they will be blessed, but not only them, because the archetypes of Israel are inside of any human being. So if we develop them, we are blessed. When we know how to read and understand the Bible, we understand that the solar light of Kether is the Iod י of Israel that develops in our hearts.
"Every living soul" every Nephesh Chaiah נפש חיה is related with חיה Chaiah. What is Chaiah? Chaiah חיה means life, but it is applied in the Bible in different ways. We find the word חיות Chaioth which means animals; Otz HaChayim עץ החיים the Tree of Life - when the Human Being, when Adam became a living soul, Genesis says Adam became a נפש חיה Nephesh Chaiah. In other words, Chaya חיה life is directly pointing the sephirah Binah, the Holy Spirit.
Chaya חיה life the soul of Binah relates to the Akashic waters of space, the ethereal blue substance in the space that contains the Prana or fire. The Akashic waters polarize into the cerebral spinal fluids and genitalia fluids of male and female genders, brain and sex in Malkuth, the earth, our physicality. So everything that descends from the space on Malkuth, the planet earth, everything that is incarnated in this philosophical earth, which is our physicality - comes from the Akashic waters of Binah. Every single living soul comes from Binah, because Binah is the author, the creator of this creation. So in other words, from Binah comes חיות Chaioth - the bestial creatures, animals; from Binah comes the נפש חיה Nephesh Chaiah, the living souls of resurrected masters after performing the sexual alchemical work that we have explained here. Likewise, all of us, intellectual animals, come from Binah, because Binah rules Yesod-sex and we were engendered within the womb of our mother by means of the orgasm of our father, when they fornicated in their sexual act. Thus, we do not have נפש חיים Nephesh Chayim, living souls from Binah, but נפש חיות Nephesh Chaioth – animal souls.
So every soul-life emerges from Chaiah. This is why we kabbalistically stated that commonly we have three souls, namely, Nephesh, Neshamah and Ruach. Yet there are other two souls that we also mentioned, namely, Chaiah and Yehidah. Yehidah is above Chaiah, we talked about them in other lectures. Yet, here we are addressing only Chaiah, which is Binah, related with the Logos, with creation, and whether it is a creation through mechanicity, whether it is a creation through sexual Alchemy, all creation comes from Chaiah-Binah. So, the Holy Spirit is the giver of life in different levels. This is why demons are punished very severely, because they are demons thanks to Chaiah; yet, they utilize the sexual force of Chaiah, sexual energy in the wrong way, so they are punished, because every sin is forgiven except the sin that squanders Chaiah - the life of Binah. demons use their sexuality in a wrong way.
The Eighth Precept
Now the Zohar addresses Shekinah, the Divine Mother, in the eighth precept, which is the last one to study in this lecture:
You might think that if you are not circumcised and if you become circumcised, then you will become a convert to the hight life of Binah. No! It is not that, remember that circumcision means to practice sexual Alchemy, so, to be a convert to the hight life of Binah, you must consent to practice sexual Alchemy. In other words, you consent to be spiritually circumcised, this, alchemically speaking. If you want to understand this better read then the letters of Paul the Rabbi of Tarsus in the New Testament, he explains in them that there are two types of circumcision, namely, the physical that is practiced by many religions in their traditions, and the other the spiritual, which Gnostics called sexual Alchemy.
Those who practice sexual Alchemy experience spiritual circumcision. This,
“...in order to enjoy the protection of the sheltering wings of the Schekinah, or divine Presence, that guards and defends all those who [in Malkuth], forsaking the worship of [fornicator] demons [or better said, the golden statue of Nebuchadnezzar from Klipoth], give themselves up to the service of the true God [Shaddai-El-Chai in Yesod]. - Zohar
The true God, Shaddai-El-Chai, the living God, vibrates in our sexual energy. Thus it is written in Genesis: "Let the earth bring forth, the living soul according to their kind." This is how this is literally translated. But this verse is translated in the following alchemical manner:
Let the [brute mercury of the] earth [their physicality] bring forth, the living soul [of the mercury] according to their sex.
The Hebrew word מינה Minah is translated in english as “kind;” yet מינה Minah also means sex, sort, type, species, class, gender, genus, race.
What is the brute mercury? The brute mercury is the sexual energy as we have it in our sexual glands, as we have it in the ovaries and uterus or as we have it in the prostate and testicles; this is what in Alchemy is called brute mercury, which the Book of Genesis call the earth, our physicality. When we enter into the mysteries of sexual Alchemy, we then accomplish that verse of Genesis that states: "Let the brute mercury of the earth (the physicality) bring forth the living soul."
What is the living soul? It is Nephesh Chaiah in Hebrew . Nephesh is the animal soul and Chaiah is life.
How are we going to bring up the Chaiah, the life from our Nephesh (our animality, which is our physicality)? We bring it up by transmuting our sexual matter into energy. In Alchemy, living soul is the soul of the mercury, which is that energy that the alchemists extract from their sexual fluids during the sexual act. So, living soul is also what rises through Ida and Pingala to the brain when we practice Pranayama and also what man and woman sublimate in the sexual act. Yes, by means of sexual Alchemy is how man and woman rise the living soul, the soul of the mercury from their semen (feminine or masculine semen) and how they are born as children of God. Thus, if you are practicing pranayama or Sexual Magic, you are sublimating the soul of the mercury; however, only in Sexual Magic, the soul of the mercury creates, is more potent, because it is fecundated by the sexual fire of man and woman. This is why the Zohar continues:
The esoteric [alchemical] meaning of the words למינה “according to their sex,” (the Bible says according to their kind) is repeated twice in this verse of scripture, is [related to male-female sexual polarities] as follows.
It is repeated twice because it is related to male/female sexual polarities. This is so obvious - according to their kind. The husband is transmuting according to his kind and the woman according to her kind, but at the same time the two kinds originate a third kind, which the Zohar explains as the Schekinah, yet we also explain these kinds in order to extent:
"The [sublimation of the living soul of the mercury towards the] wings of the שכינה Schekinah that denote two spiritual regions [Geburah and Gedulah] with many separate [Nirvanic] divisions or localities, whither the [chaste] soul of proselytes [Arhats, Initiates] return after separation from their body." - Zohar
You always wonder: "Where am I going to be if I die and I don't finish the work?" Well, if you are in Chastity, you are going to be either in Geburah or in Gedulah. That is why we imprinted two wings there at that side, in order to show you or to explain to you that the wings of the Schekinah are Chesed and Geburah. That is why in the invocation of Salomon, when we reach Chesed, we say: "Chasmalim, enlighten me with the splendors of Elohim and Schekinah!" Because these are the wings; remember the wings of the Caduceus of Mercury. Those wings are coming from the lungs, because the wings symbolize the wind, the air, and the air is related with the lungs. So at that height is where the angels have their wings, because the two lungs represent Chesed and Geburah, but internally, when the initiate dies, he goes into those regions, which in other terms (Sanskrit terms) is called Nirvana. You know that there are many levels of Nirvana, where the souls go after entering the process of death in the physical plane. For instance and as a proof of this, I remember a missionary instructor who phoned me many years ago and told me the following:
"My wife doesn't like to be in mission, so I am planning to return to my country in South America."
I answered, "Once you enter into the path, you cannot go back, because the one that enters into the path of initiation at any level, is dealing with the law of karma in different ways, thus, the lords of karma deal with them in different manner, and their karma is not applied as the ordinary people who do not care about these matters. Thus, if you return after having taken the path of missionary or instructor, that is “generosity that is to be shown as proselytism,” I think that the karma will follow you according to whatever you might do, so my advise is don't go back."
He said, "Thank you." Yet anyhow, he went back, and he was killed by the guerrillas. A guerrilla was trying to steal his car, and he struggled with them in order to defend his car, which was a stupid move. And of course, guerrillas said" Oh, yeah!" and pum pum, they killed him and took his car anyhow. Thus, he died. And of course, for his mother and family it was a painful tragedy.
Then, one day in the astral plane I saw him, wearing a blue sky tunic that symbolizes the body of the soul and he told me, "I know your name."
I asked him, "What do you mean by I know your name?"
He said, "I am reading it because it is written on your forehead."
I said, "Oh yes, I know that and I know your name, too. But why are you visiting me?"
He answered, "I want to ask you for a favor".
And I said, "What favor?"
He said: "Please, talk to my mother. Tell her to stop crying for me. I am so happy in the realms where I am. I am in those heavenly regions that you know and talk about, so, I am so happy. Yet, every time that my mother is crying because of the way I died, she is unconsciously pulling me down from heaven, and this makes me really sad. I do not like to be pulled down to these lower realms, because I am really happy there in the upper ones; so tell her that I am very happy! Yet, every time she cries, she pulls me down" and I do not like that."
"OK", I said, "I will talk to her."
So, then, when I talked to his mother, I told her, "Your son told me please don't cry for him. Are you crying?"
She answered: "Yes yes, I am crying."
So, I told her, "Don't cry for him - he is very happy, and if you think that by crying you are making him feel good, no! He feels miserable, he feels very bad, because he is in those regions of happiness, because the work that we are performing for humanity, whether it was a short work, is being paid in that way, and that is very rare. So don't cry for him, he is happy; he told me to tell you that in order for you to stop crying."
And she said: "Yes, I am crying every day I am just remembering the way that he died, because he really died in a terrible manner."
I said: "He is OK. He will eventually return into another body." So she stopped weeping, and then it was good for him, because he was enjoying those regions where the souls go after death, after separation from their bodies, but if they are chaste. But people that think that just because they believe in this or believe in that, they are going to go to heaven and what about the Holy Spirit? What about Binah? What are they doing with their Chaiah, their sexual energy? Well, this is precisely what we are pointing here. It is not a matter of believing, it is about Alchemy.
Let us now address the Schekinah, the Brazen Serpent. And remember what Jehovah Elohim said unto Moses regarding Chaiah חיה, the life of Binah:
"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 looks upon it, shall חי Chai, live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he חי Chai, lived. - Numbers 21: 8, 9
The pole is the spinal column and the fiery serpent is the Divine Serpent or the Serpent of Brass with wings. As the Zohar explains:
"The region included under the right wing contains two divisions through which pass the souls of the children [bodhisattvas] of Israel, when (bodhisattvas) after [psychological] death they ascend [from Chesed] to the celestial locality [in Binah] called Chaiah חיה. The left wing with its two divisions is reserved for the people of Ammon and Moab. All souls, however, whether they come forth from Chaiah חיה, or Ammon and Moab, are living souls differing in their sexuality, being those [bodhisattvas] of Israel or those of proselyte [Initiates, Arhats] who, as stated, ascend to the regions under the right wing of the שכינה Schekinah." - Zohar
So, the Zohar states that only the souls of Israel, Tiphereth, the bodhisattvas, rise to Binah, because they are pure; they are the souls of resurrected masters that after resurrection go to the celestial locality called Chaiah חיה. For instance, Master Samael Aun Weor in 1976 after passing the ordeal of the eighth initiation of Job, entered into Binah, the higher region called Chaiah חיה, because he annihilated the totality of his ego, but all the other initiates that died physically, they go to the left wing. The left wing relates to the left pillar of the Tree of Life, where we also find the regions of Nirvana where the souls go according to their level, according to their initiations; thus, if we are working seriously, we will go there after physical death and enjoy the bliss. But we will come back as the Master Samael also will come back, but he comes back triumphant, resurrected, as Jesus came back after resurrection. But we will enter into a new body and continue our work, because we have still the ego alive, unless we disintegrate the ego in this life - that would be good. Master Samael explains in many of his books - the one that disintegrates his ego before creating solar bodies - he goes very good, but unfortunately nobody does that. Generally, we create the Solar Bodies first and thereafter we continue disintegrating the ego. Thus, after we physically die, we go into Ammon and Moab, into Gehenna, Limbo, the region off the left, which is the region of those who still have ego.
Let us explain about these Ammon and Moab. These are actually two tribes that the Bible states are the offspring of Lot with his two daughters. Before Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, Lot escape into צערה Tzoar (grief, agony, remorsefulness) with his two daughters, two types of souls, namely, the soul trapped within his egotistical lust and Nephesh his animal soul. Thus, when Lot went up out of that Tzoar or Limbo, he dwelt in the mountain, Malkuth, with his two daughters; and they dwelt in a cave or new physicality. In that cave he and his two daughters drank the lustful wine of Fornication, had sexual relations and the descendants of these two daughters are the mixed multitudes of Ammon and Moab who are always considered tribes of Israel. So, the way that Ammon and Moab were engendered was through incest. So, the mixed multitudes with ego in the Exodus relate to Ammon and Moab. Those who say: “let us eat and drink; for to morrow we will die.”
The canopy of the Tree of Knowledge is Daath, the throat and its roots are in Yesod-sex. As Adam represents the human soul and relates to Tiphereth, likewise, Lot represents the human soul of converts that consent to practice the rite of sexual Alchemy and thus enter the path, and the Exodus. Lot was guilty of incest, because the Tree of Knowledge is called the wife, namely, the feminine principle of Binah. And as Zohar stated an initiate is not permitted to perform the rite of sexual Alchemy by his own whim if a throne or seat, is not set specially on his spine for the great IAO, אליהו Eliao, Elijah. The rite of sexual Alchemy, the Tree of Knowledge, must be accompanied by Binah, the great IAO, אליהו Eliao, Elijah, her husband, otherwise there will be incest, Adultery and Fornication. The sin of eating of the Tree of Knowledge is that the human soul went into the sexual act alone, without the consent of the Holy Spirit, Binah, the husband of the Schekinah. And this corresponds to the left side. So if you die with ego, you don't belong to the right side, but to the left side, the left side of the Tree of Life, which relates to Ammon and Moab. Then, if you are in Chastity but still with ego, you go to the region of the left wing and enjoy some celestial vacations, as explained here with this example of the missionary that went there after dying in the tragic manner, because the law of karma is applied as it is applied to ordinary people when you abandon the path of generosity. But if you are on the path of generosity, any karma that comes to you, will come because the lords or karma have given you what you owe, but systematically. To walk the path of generosity doesn't mean that you are not going to pay karma; indeed you will pay karma, but according to the law of your own particular אליהו Eliao, Elijah, this, in order for you to self-realize yourself. Either way, you are under the wings of the Schekinah, the Divine Mother.
"For this reason Israel [the human psyche as a bodhisattva] is calledבן יקיר ben yaqir (the dear child of Chokmah), because יהוה has given unto him [unto Tiphereth] a better portion than that of the proselytes.
"The children [bodhisattvas] of Israel are also called "those whom I [Chokmah] carry in my bosom," that is to say, in my beautiful land [Tiphereth, the heart, his kingdom] to which [bodhisattvas], having ascended after [psychological] death, they shall go out no more."
When we talk about Kingdoms, we always state the Kingdom of the Father is in the head. The kingdom of the Son (Chokmah) is in the heart. And the kingdom of the Holy Spirit is in the Tree of Knowledge, in the sexual organs. So if you wonder: "Where am I gathering all those elements of those souls, when I am annihilating my ego – well you are gathering them in Tiphereth", because Tiphereth is the Kingdom of Chokmah. When Chokmah incarnated in Jesus was crucified along with two thieves, the thief on the right side of Jesus, said unto him, “Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23: 42, 43)
People ask: "Where is the Kingdom of Chokmah?" It is in the heart. And because that good thief, meaning, he is a good alchemist, a good thief, because he is stealing the fire of the devil in the sexual act for his own God, this is why he is also crucified because sexual Alchemy is what the cross means. The one who is crucified on his right side is the good thief, meaning all of the alchemists, who are stealing the sexual force from the devil. What devil? We are the devil, the lust that we have is the devil, and we are creating the solar bodies when we sublimate the sexual fire, because we are following the Lord (Chokmah - the Christ), and that is why Jesus or Chokmah incarnated in Jesus, said: "To day shalt thou be with me in paradise." What Paradise? His Kingdom, his heart, the kingdom of the sixth dimension, which is what every bodhisattva enjoys. If that bodhisattva dies and does not finish his job, he goes into the kingdom of Chokmah, because he is a bodhisattva. And the Kingdom of Chokmah is the heart, which is compassion.
The scriptures proceed further: "cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth after their kind [sex]," teaching us that [חיות Chaioth] beasts, [are נפש חיה, living souls, who] differ in their natures and forms, though animated with the same נשמת חיים Neshamoth Chaim breath and life, so human souls, though differing the one from the other [according to Yesod], nevertheless derive their origin from the same divine source [Chaiah, Iod-Havah Elohim, Binah]." - Zohar
As we already explained, all of us, and every cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth after their sex derives from Jehovah Elohim Binah. But only Adam can become a living soul depending on how we use Yesod, our sexual energy; sex is what makes us different in God. Of course, the people of Israel, which symbolizes the alchemists that gather all the archetypes in their heart (the Kingdom of Chokmah) are different according to sexual Alchemy. This is what the Bible calls the living souls which are related with the eighth precept that we have addressed today; and with it we finished this lecture.
Questions and Answers
Audience: Who is Nebuchadnezzar?
Instructor: Read the book of Daniel in the Bible, there Nebuchadnezzar appears as the main character, beside Daniel, in chapters 1–4. Watch also Nabucco opera of Verdi.
Audience: Is the name Nebo the mercury? And we have the same at the end as Nezzar, which is Nazzar.
Instructor: That is a good statement. “The masculine noun נביא (nabi'), meaning spokesman or speaker” relate to Mercury, Hermes, the messenger of the Gods; and the root of the Nazzar - yes; Nazzar according to the Master Samael relates to the nose, the straight nose.
Audience: And נבוך Nabuch also means in Hebrew confused, but it is interesting, because he creates the golden calf, but he also puts the young Geborim in the burning fiery furnace.
Instructor: You mean for golden calf, the golden statue?
Audience: Yes, so who is Nebuchadnezzar?
Instructor: Well, he is as you stated Nebo or נביא (nabi'), the soul of the mercury rising to Nazzar, the root of the nose, where we find the magnetic center of the Father in the head. So, based on that statement that you stated it is easy to understand, when you know Alchemy. Nebuchadnezzar is the king or Melech of Babylon, our head; in other words, the human soul of the alchemist that is doing the alchemical work, but since that alchemist is not destroying the ego, obviously, he is building a golden statue. This is precisely what happened in Gnosticism; when somebody reaches the fifth initiation of major mysteries, he builds a golden statue and he requests from his followers to worship him. He says: “I am a master of the fifth initiation, and if you don't worship me, then you will go to hell.” Thus, he and his followers make a mental idol and worship it. As Master Samael said, we should stop worshiping clay idols, which are of course individuals in the physical plane, which are made of clay, Malkuth, the dust of the Earth, who built for themselves golden statues. So, finally what we can explain about idolatry, when you are an alchemist, when you know how to transmute and when you are building initiations, degrees, is that idolatry does not pertain to people’s made statues and icons. Since an idol before being carved, graven or chiseled on any material, appears first in the mind as a mental image; thus an idol is defined as any mental possession that affects our psychological situation that controls our intellectual, emotional and motor behavior. Thus, unfortunately mythomaniacs always find followers who worship them. And of course, they are not following their true God, which is in their spinal column, but a statue of Gold since they think that is the way. But when we know Alchemy as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, we are not going to worship their statue of gold, and we tell them: Sorry, we are working with Alchemy, and if you want prove of it - put us there into the burning fiery furnace of sexual Alchemy.
We will continue talking about Nebuchadnezzar in next lectures, which relate to the other alchemical precepts that we are going to address, as for instance when Nebuchadnezzar was transformed into a beast, because he was worshiping himself. So, we didn't finish with Nebuchadnezzar yet.
Instructor: Kabbalistically speaking, in the head we have the spiritual atoms of the Holy Trinity - the spiritual atom of the Father vibrates in the magnetic center located at the root of our Nazzar or nose; when we transmute our Nebo or נביא (nabi'), our soul of the mercury, that magnetic center intensely vibrates. The Atom of Holy Spirit, Binah, vibrates in the pineal gland, and the atom of the Son vibrates in the pituitary gland. That is the Trinity in the head, in the canopy of the Tree of Life. But these three Logoic forces (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) govern from the brain the three nervous systems of our body. The Father, Kether governs his kingdom in the head. The Holy Spirit governs his kingdom in the sexual glands. The Son, which vibrates in the pituitary gland governs his kingdom in the emotional superior center, located in the heart, Tiphereth. This is why, any bodhisattva who represents Chokmah (the Christ, the Universal Cosmic Christ - as Jesus) always is represented with the heart inflamed, showing the heart crowned with thorns, because the heart is the Kingdom of Chokmah, the Son; the heart is always related with Christ, the Son. In other words, in the heart is where the initiate learns have to be compassionate, thus he stops being a sectarian, because he is no longer following the moon but the sun-christ; the moon relates to sectarianism to religious clans. Here, for instance, in the earth we say: "OK, if I enter into initiation, I will enter into Nirvana and I will be out of these clans of the earth, out of these sects or groups". But we discover that in Nirvana there are also clans. Nirvana has also clans, different groups. There we find initiates from this root race or from other root races, in the different levels of Nirvana, these initiates are following their tradition, so when they return to the earth, they return into their traditions. This is how we see for instance reincarnations in Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism - all of those souls that follow that tradition, they reincarnate in the same race, and there are masters that also love that, that are attached too much to their race even in Nirvana, they return in the physical body and want to continue their work in that race. And that is the Lunar path related with the spiral path, mechanicity. So, clans also exist in Nirvana. That is why Master Samael says that when you enter into direct path, those initiates stop you and say: "Come with us", because they want the initiate to be in their clans, in their groups, but revolutionary bodhisattva says: "I am with all humanity, and I am helping humanity no matter what clan." bodhisattvas follow the solar path, and by means of the direct path the go beyond Nirvana after having overcome the temptation of those Gods. So first, says the Master, we have to avoid the temptations of demons in this physical world. Then,, when we conquer those demonic temptation we go into Nirvana, and there we have to overcome the temptation of the Gods. Thus, bodhisattvas go beyond good and evil, because the Gods are good, they are on the right side. And the demons are in the left, down in Klipoth, they are in evil, doing the work, alchemical work, in the wrong way. But bodhisattvas have to go beyond good and evil. Thus, still now, if we are conscientious of what we are saying, we have to admit that we are evil. We have to go first into good and then we have to overcome good, but first we have to overcome evil.
Audience: So the left side of the Tree of Life we were talking about - I may have confused - feel free to correct me. The left side of the Tree of Life is for Ammon and Moab, and the right side, you said, for the children of Israel. But then they enter into Binah, which is the left side?
Instructor: It is because the left side is in charge of all the souls. It is what we were explaining in the end, and what you said - they enter into the left side. Yet the top of the left column relates to the first triangle, and has nothing to do with the negativity of it, because the top of the left side, left column of the Tree of Life is Binah, but Binah in Atziluth, and here we are talking about Klipoth, and we start seeing Klipoth of shells below, Binah in the first triangle, those shells relate to all the seven sephiroth below the Trinity that relate to different types of Klipoth.
Instructor: Yes, that is the only level they can reach, but only those that annihilate the whole ego and gather all the archetypes of Israel within themselves can enter into the top, which is Binah, and they enter there simply because they know good and evil. They come from good (Chesed), but they conquer evil, which is the left side and then they become an Elohim, knowing good and evil.
We will talk in another lecture about those who do not go beyond Chesed, but we will give you a hint about them, it is written:
And Elohim said, Let there be (Meoroth מאורת ) lights in the firmament (the spine) of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years. Genesis 1: 14:
We already talked about מאורת Meoroth, which means lights. Yet, listen, if we move the letter ו Vav out from the center of the word מאורת Meoroth (Lights) and we place it before the letter ת Tav of מאורת Meoroth, we then spell the word מארות Maruth, and Maruth מארות means a Hasnamuss that through Fornication has taken the light from the ו Vav of the center column and placed it in the column of the left and made of himself a Maruth or a Hasnamuss. And Maruth מארות in Hebrew means curses. Another question?
Audience: So this is why Zohar said: “It was in the third day [third initiation of Major Mysteries] that the letter Vav ו entered in the divine name and took up its position between the two letters ה Hei of the sacred name. So what was the sacred name before the third initiation? It was just Yeah יהה Iod-Hei-Hei?
Instructor: The sacred name of God is always יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei; but when you rise the brazen serpent in your pole, in your spine, in your ו Vav, in the third initiation of major mysteries, then you can say: "הללויה Hallelujah, now I am a living example of יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, because I created my ו Vav in the third day, in other words, I created the Son, the “ו” Chrestos within, which is the Astral body, because the Astral body is the powerful astral mediator that links our physical personality with the supreme immanence of the Solar Father.” And this is how you are placing the ו Vav, meaning, you are placing your Astral body in between the upper Hei ה in heaven and the lower Hei ה of the earth, your physicality. Then you can say that you are immortal in the astral plane, because the solar Astral body is the ו Vav of the third day. So before achieving the third initiation nobody has the ו Vav of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה within.
Right now you only have Iod-Hei above, which is יה Jah, your Monad, and below you have the lower ה Hei that is your physicality. But where is the “I” Chrestos now, the ו Vav, Naher, the river, where is it? Well, you have to reach the third initiation and then you will build that ו Vav, and then you will say: "behold - an initiate, where the name of God יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei can be red. So, Yeah, before the third initiation the name of God יהוה Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei is not written in us, because through Fornication we remove the letter ו Vav out from the center of מאורת Meoroth, the light.
