Mission The Gnostic Institute of Anthropology seeks to advance public understanding and realisation of human potential for spiritual and practical living by means of the study of the teachings of Samael Aun Weor, to be accomplished by: • Promoting and assisting in the dissemination of said teachings to members of the general public throughout the world. • Establishing, organising and holding classes, lectures, courses, schools, seminars and study groups for the exploration of such teachings. • Publishing and associating in the publication of papers, periodicals, pamphlets, books, tape recordings and recordings of all other kinds promulgating said teachings. • Providing facilities for the study of comparative religion, philosophy, esoteric science and art to the general public throughout the world. What is Gnosis Gnosis is Greek for “knowledge.” Gnosis refers to experiential knowledge, rather than intellectual or conceptual knowledge. The venerable science of Gnosis is the universal and essential “knowing” that arises from the experience of objective reality, universally experienced by all those who fully awaken and develop their consciousness. The science or path to arrive at knowing that reality for oneself, in ones own experience, is also called Gnosis, because it leads to the acquisition of one’s own Gnosis of fundamental truth. “Gnosis is a very natural expression of the awakened consciousness, a perennial and universal philosophy.” - Samael Aun Weor

The Human Personality
By V.M. Samael Aun Weor
Each day is a wave of time, each month is another wave of time, each year is also another wave of time; consequently, all of the waves linked together as a chain make up the great wave of life. So, time is circular, and the life of the human personality is a closed curve. The human personality is born in its time, develops in its time, and dies in its time: it can never exist beyond its time. This issue about time is a problem that has been studied by many sages. Undoubtedly, time is the fourth dimension. So, Euclid’s geometry is only applicable to the tridimensional world, given that the world has seven dimensions and the fourth dimension is time. The human mind conceives that eternity is the prolongation of time as a straight line; nothing can be more mistaken than this concept, because eternity is the fifth dimension. Thus, each moment of existence occurs within time, and is repeated eternally. Death and life are two extremes that cyclically unite. Death concludes a man’s cycle of life in order to begin another; that is, his time concludes in order to begin another. Thus, death is intimately

A certain man was born in 1900, lived
sixty-five years, then died; where was he before 1900, and where will he be after 1965? Conventional science does not know anything about this, and generally does not know how to approach any of the questions of life and death. We can axiomatically affirm that “the man died because his time has concluded, and that a potential tomorrow does not exist for the personality of any dead man.”


if the human personality terminates with death. serve as absurd examples that give to the personality of the child that peculiar. the multitudes return. adds to the human personality its unique. Yes. the pluralized “I” returns. Unfortunately. the crowds. the infant personality in formation learns more from example. those who already possess sacred individuality reincarnate. only the heroes. so. adulterated by “reformers.

The Doctrine of Eternal Return and of the wheel of successive lives has also been very wisely taught by Gautama Buddha. the “I” returns. The Hindu doctrine is invariably associated in an intimate manner to the Pythagorean wisdom and to the Law of Eternal Return and Recurrence. Thus. this is not reincarnation. the degenerated customs of adults. characteristic tinge. then who or what returns? It is necessary to clarify once and for all that it is the ego which continues after death. However. and the example of adults is decisive in the formation of the infant’s personality. It is necessary for our readers to not mistake the Law of Return for the theory of reincarnation taught by modern Theosophy. but this process is not reincarnation. the psychological “I” comes back to this valley of tears. yes. the guides. skeptical. as well as in the ancient cosmogony of the Hindus with the eternal return of the days and nights of Brahma. Therefore. every new human personality is fashioned during the first seven years of childhood.Gnosis Magazine 4 . the incessant repetition of Kalpas. we have to come back to this world in order to repeat the same drama of our existence. a new human personality has to be created in every return.

Its reasoning processes are subjective. they move within a vicious circle: the circle of external sensorial perceptions. It has about 15. and it cost him nothing. what subjective reasoning is in itself.Gnosis Magazine Let us start our discussion that we could denominate “Intuition. Where did we come from? Where are we going? What is the reason for our existence? What do we exist for? Why do we exist? Behold. and university. we have here a lot of questions that we must clarify and resolve. youth. It is obvious that the child has to go through all the educational processes: kindergarten. This physical body is marvelous. 13 .The Organisation of the Psyche Lecture by Samael Aun Weor The Sensual Mind While the child is growing. This sensual mind in itself and by itself gives the child information through external sensorial perceptions and it is precisely with the information granted through such perceptions that the sensual mind always elaborates the contents of its concepts. But truly no educational institute can give to a child. his sensual mind is opening little by little. The subjective reasoning is nourished with all the data that these distinct scholastic institutions grant unto it. elementary.“ First of all. high school. this is obvious. or teenager Issue 32 .000 x a million neurons that are in the service of the child. our present mind can never know anything about reality. this is obvious. Now you will comprehend for yourselves. because of this. we must begin from the foundation: the human being. but a complete differentiation between subjective reasoning and objective reasoning must be made. A child is born.

Therefore. All data. and educational centers only serves to nourish the sensual mind. are merely empirical and subjective. towards simple opinions of a subjective type. It is very convenient Issue 32 . but never to the experience of the truth. Towards the beginning. Obviously the child looks in wonder on any phenomena: a beautiful toy awakens in him this astonishment. schools. In the name of truth. Finally. the only thing that we can really achieve is to make for ourselves an artificial personality. the data that one receives in collages. This capacity of wonder disappears as the child grows. in the best cases. Undoubtedly. never to experience that which is not from time. for him. the speculations of subjective reasoning always arrive at intellectualism. and nothing else. these topics serve only to: First: Falsify the knowledge of the five cylinders of the organic machine.existing data about that which is not of time. academies. remains abandoned. the instant in which the child becomes a youth arrives and complete loss of this capacity of astonishment. and with this toy the child plays.Gnosis Magazine 14 . with these educational systems of schools. all scholastic matters. as his sensual mind receives data from school and collage. Third: Develop the sensual mind. objective reasoning processes obviously conduct us towards exact and perfect postulates. about that which is Reality. and this is pitiful. In this way. Therefore. Truly. Second: Take the capacity of astonishment away from us. Fourth: Form a false personality within us. in reality. objective reasoning. that the senses grant to the subjective mind of the teenager. the child has still not lost the capacity of astonishment. that disgracefully does not receive any instruction because there is no school that teaches it. and universities. etc. Unfortunately. we have to say clearly that the topics that are currently studied in educational institutes do not have any real relationship with the distinct parts of our Being. all family matters. The child is always subjectively educated from place to place. no form of superior instruction exists. it should be clearly understood that the sensual mind cannot produce any radical transformation in any way within ourselves. at the absurd field of utopianism or. truly. the knowledge that is studied in Humanities will never serve to form the Psychological Human Being. To give an account of this. On the other hand.

I have to strongly disagree with him on this matter. A psychology really exists within any organic machine that we mistakenly call “man. and the true and authentic Psychological Man. We do not need to work upon Issue 32 . then it is urgent.“ The fact is that this machine is very disorganized. who is the Psychological Man. there is a struggle within us because the sensual mind is the clear enemy of the superior mind. But this must be clearly understood. The Psychological Man and Woman ourselves in order to form a physical body. mistakenly called Man. Nonetheless.to understand that the sensual mind can never take us from the autonomism and mechanicity. but to form is a Psychological Man is very difficult. then we need to work upon ourselves. To form a physical body is not difficult. but really we truly need to make something more. If it is true that we want to create the true Man. unpostponable. The sensual mind is identified with any circumstance. Let us then see the difference between the intellectual animal. because we inherit it. If we want to create such a Man within. we need to organize the psyche which is disorganized.“ I also mean Woman. We were born with a marvelous physical body. but it is very obvious that we need to work upon ourselves in order to form a Psychological Man. when I use the word “Man. even if they appear to be people of a very cultured mind. Naturally. The Master Gurdjieff said that the organic machine does not have a psychology.Gnosis Magazine 15 . in order to create a Psychological Man. for example. who is a true Man in the most complete sense of the word. in which we find the people of all the world. an intellectual animal. if suddenly we find ourselves at a sumptuous banquet and we identify ourselves a great deal with the food. It is one thing to be an animalistic human being. and undeferable that we organize this psychology within the intellectual animal. As a matter of fact. while it is certainly quite another thing to be a true Psychological Man.

religions. orders. a demonstrative annunciation. or simply. true work on ourselves. a maxim that is structured with superior logic. we end up drunk. from moment to moment. or even worse. it is convenient that we should reflect upon many ethical catalogs and moral codes that are held as golden maxims. Accordingly. neither a new nature. other than through many sacred sayings.we will convert ourselves into gluttons. in this way. The fact of the matter is to organize the interior psyche. To create the Psychological Man in these circumstances. there is a lot that needs to be analyzed before entering into the work of the organization of the psyche. It is urgent that we analyze all of this. I am not saying to become selfish: this must be understood. is not possible. in a more independent and perfect way. through aphorisms that all the world considers perfect. through many golden maxims. We must learn to think better. we will become very identified with that person and end up fornicating. we have to become a little more individualistic. or if we get identified with the wine. we are changed into adulterers. If in some way we have to start the work of creating the Psychological Man. For example. intentionally false. even if very wise and perfect. Some communities pretend to achieve something that they call “purifications“ or “sanctity“ by means of such maxims. without ever getting identified with any circumstance. sects. which pretend to organize the human psyche by means of certain golden maxims. It is obvious that any type of ethical or religious maxim can never serve as a pattern for the distinct events of life. and we have to leave behind all subjective rationalism in order to get to the root of the matter. lodges. There are societies. schools. Obviously this would signify the conversion of ourselves into slaves. For example. could still be unquestionably false. like the logic of Ouspensky. To strictly subordinate ourselves to a maxim with the purpose of organizing our psyche would be absurd. These maxims will never serve as patterns of measurement in order to achieve the authentic transformation and in order to achieve the organization of the psyche within ourselves. in order to anticipate a transformation within ourselves. and as already mentioned. If we see a person of the opposite sex in front of us who is fascinating and interesting. To confront our own errors as they are without justifying them does not Issue 32 . this will come from real. Moreover. will never truly create a new cosmos. Therefore.Gnosis Magazine 16 . There are some people who are mistaken about the path. while observing ourselves from instant to instant.

If we do the contrary. the reason for illumination is the Dharmadatu. in the same way that we are diminishing the undesirable psychic elements that we carry in our interior. it really pleases us. because something else enters into the game here: the Third Factor for the revolution of the consciousness: Sacrifice for Humanity. For us.percent Objective consciousness. There are many that would like to achieve illumination. It is obvious that if we disintegrate the ego we will receive our payment. In any case. because I repeat. but nevertheless. this is obvious. based on this alone. and this is possible if we march on the correct path. To attain absolute awakening is what we want. Illumination is something that we long for. and when the Buddhist Annihilation has been achieved. to attain absolute illumination will not be possible. instead of this word sickening us. This is clear. because to attain one hundred percent consciousness is what we long for.“ The Three Factors Someone can disintegrate the undesirable psychic elements that we carry in our interior.

With such energies we can nourish the third psychological body or individual mind. and he is born in us when the psyche is organized. before we achieve the absolute illumination. meaning the disintegration of the ego in its entirety. When I pronounce myself against the sensual mind. give form. we need to know how to work upon ourselves. and the SACRIFICE FOR HUMANITY. Undoubtedly. as I was telling you. or the energies of the motor/instinctive/sexual brain. All of this is undoubtable. we will organize the psyche. We need to organize the Psychological Man within each one of us. TO DIE. We cannot deny that if we sacrifice ourselves for our fellow men we will be paid. Anyway. Energy & the Creation of the Superior Bodies If we work correctly. meaning the creation of the existential. if we do not waste the energies of the emotional center. I want the brothers and sisters to clearly understand that I am not putting aside my recognition of the usefulness of the sensual mind. really true. There is a need to organize the psyche within ourselves here and now. we will be paid. we need to live in perfect equilibrium Issue 32 . if we do not waste the energies of the mind. existential bodies of the Being. to the second psychological body with the savings of such energies in ourselves: this is the body of emotions. Behold the three factors for the revolution of the consciousness. the Psychological Man must be born in us. that if we create the superior. Therefore in order to achieve absolute illumination. then in reality we will achieve the savings of the intellectual energies. First of all.

There is a need Issue 32 . “Satan. certain hermits that live in the caverns of the Himalayas forget that they have a sensual mind. or when it is identified with a Some people only preoccupy themselves with the sensual mind. The superior mind answers. but there is a need to know how to intelligently drive it with equilibrium.“ Jesus never let the sensual mind dominate him.whilst knowing how to drive the superior mind. meaning: the superior mind and the sensual mind must be equilibrated in life. To simply disregard this mind just like that is absurd. if thou kneel and worship before me.“ In other words.Gnosis Magazine 21 . it just happens that there is a need to have it under control. Identification The struggle between the superior mind and the sensual mind is frightful. there exists a need to eat in order to exist. the sensual mind is necessary. and the sensual one. it is the sensual mind tempting him. Let us remember the Christ when he was fasting in the wilderness. When striving for the organization of the Psychological Man. It must march in perfect equilibrium with the superior mind. obviously a frightful struggle will happen between the two minds. The sensual mind does not want to be involved in anything related with the superior mind. The sensual mind enjoys when it is identified with a scene of lust or when it is identified with a painful event of the street. one forgets there is a need to get dressed and not wander on the streets completely negligent. between the superior. Therefore. not accomplishing his duties in life. For example. for the sensual mind to function in a equilibrated form in order for one to accomplish his duties of life. “All of the kingdoms of the world will be granted unto thee. then one forgets that there is a need to pay the rent. which is the psychological one. A demon was presented in front of him and told him. saying. If one does not know how to drive the sensual mind. it is written you must obey and worship the Lord your God. Satan. but the meaning of this is not that the sensual mind is useless.

We waited because the insurance agent was not showing up. you should Issue 32 . and even if any of them could have paid her. time was passing by. on my part. “Sir. and truly it was not his fault. The occupants of the car that I was in and the driver were definitely angry in a very big way. since I am wasting my time . If the supermarket was on the right side. and possibly many more.very respectably . if you would give me at least 300 pesos then we could be finished with this discussion. all of us are wasting our time. and this lady insisted that she should receive payment of 300 pesos. because our psychological discipline. she insisted on calling the insurance company in order to arrange the problem. they were not in any position to do it. teaches us that in such cases one must not identify. the insurance company did not arrive. that was more or less the cost for the repair of her vehicle that she herself destroyed. Absolutely not caring a bit about this situation.“ “But if you observe the positions of the two cars. Such was the anger that they were having. After a couple of hours. not to identify with this circumstance. then she would have turned right with no problem. I am going to illustrate this with an example I was traveling in a car. The damages for her car were not so grave. etc. they were minimal. However. because she saw that I was the only one that was serene: the rest of the occupants were all very vociferous. two hours. But this lady was insisting that she was right. Naturally. this lady . this lady then turned left: this of course ended up with her crashing into the car that we were riding in. he presented his allegation to the lady in question. our psychological judo. someone else was driving that car. he was not guilty of crashing into this other vehicle that suddenly appeared in front of him. But here comes the interesting part of the story: the car in which my insignificant person was riding was being driven by someone who recognized that this was not his fault. and the psychological mind is violently against it. any traffic officer would have disqualified her claims immediately. Of course this was manifestly absurd.glass of wine.Gnosis Magazine 22 .actually. I decided. you will see that you were coming from the right lane and if you wanted to turn left. suddenly she changed direction intent on going to a supermarket which was on the left side of the street. Nevertheless. At the end. It is obvious that I remained serene in accordance with our psychological judo. It is obvious that driving in the right lane she should have turned in a more correct way in order to go to the supermarket. and in the right lane a lady was driving another vehicle. We were driving in the left lane of the street.approached me. She said.

And all of this because we identify with circumstances. Possibly I even saved them from going to court. completely absurd. and then the car was lost on the streets of the city.“ Well. bitter deeds. although the occupants of the other car had money.“ “But sir. Really. leave in holy peace and do not pay attention to their insults.“ “O.. truly. It is absurd to identify oneself with circumstances. With which forces can one give oneself the luxury of creating an individual mind. since the insurance agent is not coming. there was not a grave problem. Go on your way. etc. They were absolutely identified with the event and of course they judged me as a fool. like the event that I have been talking about? The creation of the second body invites us to save the emotional energies.Gnosis Magazine 23 . and arguments. I certainly saved them from a great deal of problems and obnoxious details. as is said. etc. We could have kept waiting for three. my dear friends. This is how people are. and they could not do anything but protest. With which energies will we organize the Astral Body if we allow ourselves to be driven by explosions of anger. because the energies are wasted.“ It is obvious that there was a general protest from the others. what are we doing by wasting our time. the one that was driving and her acquaintances. Any traffic officer would disqualify you. It is not possible to try to enter in this way. if truly one squanders the intellectual energies wasting them on foolishness. I approached and said to this lady “Go ahead. one of the occupants directly approached the ladies with the purpose of insulting them because there were many. you must understand that to identify oneself with circumstances always brings problems. they were in no way prepared to pay her.K. you intended to enter the supermarket from the right lane when the left was already occupied. even the whole afternoon. The damages of her car were minimal. six hours. But they were so identified with this event that they didn‘t realize the good that I did for them. explosions of frightful rage. I averted for them fifty thousand foolish deeds.. however. They were so identified with the scene that obviously they didn‘t have any desire. etc. and quite possibly until that night we could have waited until the insurance agent finally arrived in order to get to some foolish arrangement. but also against me. in reality. they were very indignant not only against this lady. four. Such was the state in which they were. Of course. this woman left very happy and from afar gave me a last salutation. to twist their arm. there is no problem anymore. and other sorts of names.

vital. can give himself the luxury of receiving the animated principles in order to convert oneself into a Man. the Body of Conscious Will. They are indispensable in order for the Man to appear within each one of them. To understand this is urgent. when I am speaking of the organization of the psyche. We should not to identify ourselves. then it is obvious that he will never organize the psychological bodies. 24 . emotional. nor forget ourselves. Therefore. and volitive energies by identifying himself with all the circumstances of life. When one forgets the self. a third body of an individual mental type. Therefore. if we truly do not learn to leave aside the mechanical antipathies. a true Man or Woman is one that has saved his energies and that has built the superior existential bodies of the Being by means of the same energies. if we are always full of evil will towards our fellow man. and finally a fourth body of a conscious volitive type. this is undoubtable. then one cannot give form to the psyche: one cannot make the psyche become intelligently structured within itself because one squanders the energies foolishly. But truly.Gnosis Magazine Now then. it must be understood that we must know how to handle and utilize these energies. We know well that someone who possesses the physical body. A true Man is one that has received his animated and spiritual principles. There is a need to create all of these superior vehicles if we truly want to create the Psychological Man within ourselves.the creation of a third body (which can be called the intellectual body or individual mind) makes us comprehend the necessity to save our mental energy. and when one is identified. then one identifies oneself. a second body of an emotional/psychological type. with which energies will we create the fourth psychological body. mental. a Issue 32 . if one squanders his motor. in order not to waste our energies foolishly. or to give form to it or to build it within ourselves. my dear brothers and sisters.

This definition is used by all of the little pseudoesoteric and pseudo-occult schools which are around. This definition is correct. it is better to give form to the psyche. A real Man is the one who has formed the interior Man inside himself instead of those undesirable elements (ego).Gnosis Magazine 25 . it is what is fundamental.perfect Man is one that has disintegrated all of the psychic inhuman elements. judicious in our longings. But what is important is to explain what its functions are. This is the real. what counts is the interior Man. Instead of searching for inferior siddhis or inferior powers as we said. then the real Man. Obviously. Therefore. this is a good definition. yet she did not understand. and this is really absurd. Analysis invites us to go much deeper in this matter. Then the wise man brought her a lit Issue 32 . A wise man explained unto her that it was the faculty of Interpretation. But many preoccupy themselves exclusively with the development of powers or inferior siddhis instead of dedicating themselves towards organizing their own intimate psyche. How are we going to define Intuition? It is a direct perception of the truth without the depressing process of options. true Man who sacrifices himself for his fellowmen. then you will be able to give form to the psyche. but I‘ve found it very incipient. A Chinese Empress did not understand this matter of Intuition very well. and it is achieved by organizing the psyche. Possibly Hegal with his dialectic tried to define it based on the Chinese philosophy of the yellow race. Intuition You must understand this. What is Intuition? It is the faculty of interpretation. I believe that what is fundamental is the organization of our inferior psyche. Well. we are just wasting our time miserably. This interior Man receives his payment. If it is powers that we looking for. So to create the Man is a beginning. If you understand this in yourselves and work on yourselves. and I mention this so that you will stop coveting powers. I want in an emphatic form to refer to Intuition. A transcendental power exists that is born within any human being that truly has worked upon himself. the Great Law pays him. because this interior Man is awakened and because he has disintegrated the ego. I do not deny this. this is how he attains illumination. this is basic. Where are we going to start? With the organization of the psyche? Or the development of inferior powers? What is it that we want? We have to be judicious in the analysis. the true Man will be born within you. But what is this faculty? It has been said to us that this faculty is related to the pineal gland.

Within the Macrocosmos. within ourselves there is an inferior cosmos (it is clear that it is the Tritocosmos) and a superior cosmos (and it is now clear that it is the Mesocosmos). Then the Empress understood. We are between a superior cosmos and an inferior cosmos. a play with interpretation. if somebody has achieved the construction of the superior existential bodies of the Issue 32 . the cosmic sun is contained. this flame was in turn projecting a flame onto another mirror. the Milky Way.candle and placed it in the center of the hall. if he is really a true Man in the most transcendental sense of the word. and within this cosmos. and these are contained one within another. and this other mirror was projecting it onto another. It is clear that the flame of that candle was reflected in one mirror. the Macrocosmos is contained. the cosmos Earth. is contained. there is another one. Within the Deuterocosmos. We already know for example. and within this cosmic sun. and in totality we have seven cosmos. and around it he placed ten mirrors as well. meaning the Infinite. then the faculty of Interpretation will be a fact within him.Gnosis Magazine 26 . and this one to another. A marvelous play of lights was formed. We are also very related with our parents since they originated us. Let us take into account that one is contained within the cosmos. Behold the faculty of Intuition. likewise from ourselves. the Deuterocosmos. Within one cosmos. there is another cosmos. Therefore. If somebody has achieved the Buddhist Annihilation. and within the Microcosmos man is contained the life of the infinitely small.

Of course not. that Illumination has its laws. what we would define as consciousness. its death. through the means of Intuition. related with the ten mirrors that served to illustrate the story of the Empress. its birth.“ The whole Mahamanvantara can reflect itself in the fingernail of an authentic Man and it would be reflected with such exactitude that this Buddha would not ignore anything. my dear friends. related with the ten mirrors that served to illustrate the story of the Empress. just as the candle in the example that I gave you.
