. We have to form Christ within ourselves in order to enter through the doors into the triumphant and victorious city on Palm Sunday. Christmas is a cosmic event that must be performed in each one of us. The Nativity (Christmas) is absolutely individual. It is necessary for the Christ to be born in each one of us. – Samael Aun Weor
The Christic principle has never been absent from any religion. All religions are one. Religion is as inherent to life as humidity is to water. The great cosmic Universal Religion becomes modified into thousands of religious forms. Thus, the priests from all religious forms are completely identifiable with one another through the fundamental principles of the great cosmic Universal Religion. – Samael Aun Weor
So what has happened, unfortunately, is that the inner doctrine was at first rejected, and then forgotten entirely by the so-called custodians of Christian doctrine. This has led to a complete misunderstanding of what Christ is, and indeed what Christianity is. Christianity has its roots in ancient civilizations, because the principles its expresses are universal and eternal.
Authentic primeval Gnostic Christianity comes from Paganism. Prior to Paganism, the Cosmic Christ was worshipped in all cults. In Egypt, Christ was Osiris and whosoever incarnated him was an Osirified one. In all ages there have been Masters who have assimilated the Infinite Universal Christic Principle. In Egypt, Hermes was the Christ. In Mexico, the Christ was Quetzalcoatl. In Sacred India, Krishna is Christ. In the Holy Land, the Great Gnostic Jesus, who was educated in the land of Egypt, was the one who had the bliss of assimilating the Universal Christic Principle, and because of this, he was worthy of being re-baptised with the Seity of Fire and of the Cross, Kristos. The Nazarene, Jesus-Iesus-Zeus, is the modern man who totally incarnates the Universal Christic Principle. Prior to Jesus, many Masters incarnated this Christic principle of Fire. The Rabbi of Galilee is a God, because he totally incarnated the Cosmic Christ. Hermes, Quetzalcoatl, Krishna are Gods because they also incarnated the Cosmic Christ. – Samael Aun Weor
Gnostics understand Christ very differently than other forms of Christianity. Gnosticism is the original doctrine of the great Master we call Jesus taught secretly to his disciples. This is why he always stated, in his parables, “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear…” Who are those who have ears to hear? They are the ones who have been given the understanding to correctly interpret his Word. All of the others, they hear only the outer doctrine, the cloak. There is an inner doctrine and an outer doctrine. The outer doctrine has always been for the masses, and the inner doctrine for the chosen, the few. “For many called, but few are chosen…” Do not be confused though. The outer doctrine is good, it is just not the complete doctrine, and correctly followed, it leads one to the inner doctrine. Normally, the inner doctrine is only passed on from mouth to ear. Even the ancient Gnostic texts, which have been found in the last few centuries, still contain to those uninitiated, undecipherable symbolism that leaves them filled with mystery. There is simply no way for someone to discern correctly such inner meanings without help, without someone who knows more, or who already knows how to awaken their own consciousness.
Although Jesus was Christ, Christ came before Jesus. Indeed, before Abraham was, “I AM.” Christ is the “I AM.” When Moses saw the burning bush, the Christmas tree on engulfed in the Fire and Light of Christ, it said “I AM THAT I AM.” This was Christ within Moses.
Christ is before all. Christ is in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Trinity itself. Symbolically speaking, Christ is Fire, Christ is Light, Christ is Wisdom, Christ is Love. Christ is not a man. Christ is not a God. Christ is that which saves humanity. Christ is that which saves Divinity. Yes, Christ even saves the Angels, the Seraphim, the Thrones, the Cherubim, as well as mankind. Christ is the light that emerges from the darkness, the sprout that emerges from the seed, the lighting that strikes earth. Christ is the primordial intelligence. Christ is within everything. But one thing is for Christ to be within something, and other is when Christ incarnates within someone. Jesus incarnated Christ, and he taught, through the inner doctrine and the outer doctrine, the Path of Christ.
Jesus had the heroism to assimilate the Christic Substance in all his internal vehicles. He achieved this by working with INRI (Fire). This is how the Hierophant was able to be One with the Father. Jesus became a Christ and ascended to the Father. Everyone who assimilates the Christic Substance in the physiological, biological, psychic and spiritual Self becomes a Christ. Therefore, Christ is not some kind of human or divine individual. Christ is a cosmic substance that is found in the whole infinite space. We need to form Christ within us. This is only possible with INRI (Fire). Whosoever forms Christ becomes Christ. Only Christ can ascend to the Father. The Father is neither a human nor a divine individual. The Father, the Son and Holy Spirit are substances, forces, transcendental and terrifically divine energies. That is all. What happens is that unfortunately people have a marked tendency to anthropomorphise these superior forces. – Samael Aun Weor
within our own self. This has nothing to do with beliefs or theories. The fact that religion is today understood as a set of beliefs or theories is a terrible thing. No one seems to understand what religion is truly for. Few concepts in the world today are misunderstood as terribly as religious concepts. So it is too with the mystery of Christ.
What is a mystery anyway? It is, grammatically speaking, something that is covered by “the mist.” From this point of view, it is very poignant to symbolically portray a mystery as something hidden by clouds, such as the many artistic depictions of Jesus or Jehovah produced throughout the centuries. These painting are beautiful, they inspire us, they touch our heart in a way that no amount of book learning or memorization of philosophical concepts could ever do. In other words, they are religious. The word religion comes from religare, meaning to bind together. Therefore let us understand religion as “that which rebinds one’s essence to the true nature of reality.” Obviously, few people have any idea of what real religion is supposed to be. Until we achieve religion, then indeed there will be many mysteries within it. But, understand that the actual mist or haze that veils everything is not something outside, but rather something within us, something which could be summarized as “the quality of our mind.” When our mind is hazy, the events of life transform into many problems. Normally, any John Doe has a life full problems, and likewise, a mind full of confusion. Furthermore, there is a lack of skills within him to accurately assess his situation, and he therefore miscalculates the origin of his problems to be factors that exist outside of his own state of consciousness. In other words, he blames other
If we wish to know what Christ is, we must assimilate Christ within our physiological, biological, psychic, and spiritual self. This is a matter of practical efforts, of actions that have tangible results
people, the world, or God. He complains about other people. He repeats himself and never can go beyond the same problems. Firstly, we have to recognize that we have a psychology. Then we will understand that we are who we are, and do what we do, based upon an immeasurable number of minute factors which culminate into that thing called “me.” It culminates into an entity that responds to a name and which has a sense of “self,” which seems to exist, paradoxically, as a whole, integral, and concrete thing. Do you see the paradox? The person, “me,” never seems to grasp within the moments of its action, that its own action is actually based upon an incalculable interdependent matrix of factors which defy any possible description. And yet, we tend to hold a concept that “I am me, I know who I am, and I will always be me.” This is complete ignorance, whether we know it or not. In reality, that thing called “me” is actually more like hundred story building with thousands of people within it: some who are leaving, others who are entering, some who are growing old, and other who are growing up, some who are friends with others, and the others who are enemies. And it does not matter if our physical body is awake or asleep, in a coma or deceased, the same psychological building remains to exist and to constantly change. Can you imagine this for a moment? Can you imagine all of them interacting with each other, and the countless relationships between them all? Can you imagine all of the conversations going on at once? Our psychology is very much like this, perhaps even much more complex. Within our self are many selves. This is why we contradict our own self. This is why with have conflict within our self. There is so much going on within our own mind that is impossible to see it all. Most people have never even looked within 3
for even a moment. What everyone will find, if they knew how to look, would be too macabre and lengthy to describe in any book. Indeed, we are all a book of many volumes, and a book that has never been read. At first glance such statements may appear to be false, yet, it is indubitable that with further analysis, the truth becomes self evident. Just as no dreamer believes his is dreaming until waking up, no person can admit their own self-ignorance until they have begun to apply the discipline to see within themselves. Our modern marvels and scientific knowledge has not solved this problem, and no modern academic philosopher or psychologist has provided humanity with the tools to understand one’s own mind. This is a serious problem, because we have rejected or misunderstood the ones who do have this knowledge, and gave it properly. The Prophets have given the knowledge well, but each time humanity has refused to follow the doctrine. As a consequence, man is ill-equipped with the tools to self-discover the nature of his own self, which in turn allows him to live with very ignorant views of his own self. Even though the same problems haunt his days and nights, it is because of his self-ignorance that he does not even remotely suspect what must change in his life in order to relieve his aching heart and tormented mind. He believes that something must change, but the object at which he points towards is always the wrong thing, because he is very superficial with his analysis.
THE CULTURE OF CHRIST
What we normally call “man” and “woman” is really quite a stretch of the term, because a real man or woman is someone who has an equilibrated and awakened psychology. That quality of person is extraordinarily uncommon to find. What we find instead are beasts with intellect, or what perhaps is more pleasantly termed as intellectual animals. If the world was full of real men and women, then war would be impossible, adultery, and murder would be unimaginable. All of these things are crimes against humanity, which is enough evidence to declare that “humanity” is not really what this world possesses. It is something else, something that is below humanity. A culture is something that is cultivated, something that is taken care of, something that is grown. Any scientist that grows a culture in the lab does so with a determined purpose. Every individual, every world, every humanity has a purpose. Christ is like a scientist in this regard, because that which is called Christ has placed all of the cosmic spheres into order so that the individuals within it can create a new order within themselves. Yes, we, who are endowed with a mind of reasoning, and a body capable to comprehend the nature of reality, have to transform the Choas into Cosmos (order). This is what Christ is interested in. Christ is a word which means anointed one, from the Greek chrestos. Let us understand that Christ is not a noun, but a Verb. It is like energy, like movement, like fire, like light. It is the Logos, the Word. Christ is not a person, or a God, because Christ is beyond God. Christ has no form, which means Christ can exist within any form.
Any individual can be the Host of Christ, but it is necessary for the host to be suitable. If a king is to rule effectively, he must have order, he must have a throne upon which he can officiate. No king could bring happiness to his kingdom if he did not have the proper requisites to do so. Would the true King rule from a brothel, or a den of thieves? Such things would be absurd, and useless. Besides, if the power which is Christ attempted to come into an ordinary person, that person would be annihilated much like a fuse that explodes upon receiving too much electrical current. We must understand that one thing is Jesus, and another thing is Christ. Jesus made order from disorder, he prepared his throne and received the Sephirothic Crown, the “Crown of Life” mentioned in the Book of Revelation. The Sephirothic Crown is the Kabbalistic term for Christ. Any individual can receive the Sephirothic Crown. The Sephirothic Crown contains three jewels. These jewels, like all religious descriptions, are symbols of abstract truths, which in this case represent the root factors of all existence, which are the Affirming, Denying and Reconciling. Everything that exists, exists due to these fundamental principles. In Greek, Christ is Chrestos (Χριστός), which is spelled with the letter chi (Χ) and rho (ρ). This is why many times Christ is represented with a P and an X intersecting. Rho has its origins in the Egyptian hieroglyph of RA, which is the Solar God, the God of Fire. The “X” of course, is the Cross of Birth, the Cross of Death, and the Cross of Life, which in reality is all the same cross. So, esoterically speaking, Christ is Fire, spiritual fire, and Christ has everything to do with The Cross.
Christ works through The Cross. It is through the crossing of the Affirming, Denying, and Reconciling that everything is born, exists, and dies. The birth of a child is the result of a man, a woman, and the sexual act (the cross of man and woman). The fire of Christ exists in the very sexual act itself. A system of worlds exists due to reconciliation of gravity and inertia, the crossing of the centripetal and centrifugal forces, to produce an orbit, and every system of worlds orbits around the central luminary, the Fire, the Sun, which is RA, the Egyptian principle of Fire. The cross is in everything. Thus, Christ is in everything that is created, and nothing that is created could be created without Christ. Christ means “anointed one” but what does Christ have to do with anointing? Anointing is done with oil, the chrism. In Hebrew, oil is spelled with three letters, shin, mem, and nun ( ,)שמןwhich phonetically looks like “shemen” but is pronounced “semen.” This semen must be understood as the sexual energy in all its forms, in both man and woman. Christ is within the sexual energy. The sexual energy is absolutely Christic and has the capacity to bring enlightenment to our soul. But that requires certain sacrifices on the Cross. Those who have read the book of Zechariah can recall that that there is a description of a candelabra with seven pipes, and each pipe carried oil to the top of it. I recommend that you read this book after knowing the symbolism. The meaning of this symbol is very simple if you know the keys. The Seven Pipes are the seven principles of the
spirit, and the oil is the spiritual component of semen which goes up to the top and provides the fire and light. This seven piped candelabra is the Jewish menorah. Biologically speaking, the menorah is the spinal column because there are seven main paths of nourishment the spinal column provides for the body, mind and spirit. If we sacrifice our animalistic sexual desires, the sexual energy instead of going out of the organism, stays within, and, if proper care is taken, the sexual energy is refined much like crude oil is refined into kerosene or gasoline. This is called transmutation of sexual energy. Then, and only then, are the seven holy pipes filled with the sacred oil and light and fire come out of the menorah. Here is the secret: spiritual energy is the refinement and purification of sexual energy.
Now the angel who talked with me came back and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep. And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I said, “I am looking, and there is a lampstand of solid gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven pipes to the seven lamps. Two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.” – Zechariah 4:1-3 Then I answered and said to him, “What are these two olive trees—at the right of the lampstand and at its left?” And I further answered and said to him, “What are these two olive branches that drip into the receptacles of the two gold pipes from which the golden oil drains?” Then he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.”
So he said, “These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.” – Zechariah 4:11-14
When the sexual energy is transmuted, it enlightens the mind. From the physical point of view, the result is found principally in the brain. This is the way the Fire of Christ can illuminate us. This is the reality of the Halo of Saints, the Horns of Moses, and the Tongues of Fire that appear of the Apostles in the Book of Acts. All of these are symbols of the light of Christ illuminating the minds of the saints and prophets. Let us now be able to understand the Bible when it says “At all times, let your garments be white, and let oil [שמן shemen] not be lacking on your head [ ראשro'sh]” (Ecclesiastes 9). “They that [were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil (transformed sexual energy) in their vessels (bodies) with their lamps (minds).” (Matthew 25). So now we can understand that to become a host of Christ, one becomes anointed by the fire of Christ.
platitudes towards God, saying He is great, and that we need to be kind and compassionate and follow the Commandments. All of this has been going on for millennia, yet humanity is still ignorant, filled with venomous hatred, attached to the most ephemeral and transitory things, and because of this, it suffers the indescribable. The real “meat” of Christianity, which is entails a very profound, radical psychological transformation, has been thrown away, and replaced with a series of rules and insubstantial practices that do not require one to stop being hypocritical. Many people leave their religion because of this; these people at least admit they would be hypocrites to continue going to Church. By this admission, some of them are closer to God than the hypocrites who ignore their own hypocrisy – but more often than not, these types just like to live without an authority constantly condemning the things that they enjoy doing. So in reality there is no difference: one type admits they like the things they like, while the other prefers to believe they are holy and worthy of God’s grace. However, what counts is not belief, but daily action, and in this area they are basically indistinguishable. Belief is easy, and this is why the verses regarding belief are always repeated, and whole sects are based upon different verses, but the Bible when studied integrally from beginning to end, shows that much more is needed than simple beliefs. The Bible was written in code to protect it from the profaners, but now it is time to reveal the keys to unlock the ciphers.
The narratives of the Doctrine are its cloak. The simple look only at the garment - that is, upon the narrative of the
What is more significant is that the foundation of that fire is not something outside of you, and it is not something that comes by believing in a personality of someone else. It does not matter how much you say you believe in Christ, or Jesus, if you do not do what is said in the scriptures. Unfortunately, if we do not understand the meaning of the scriptures, how can we follow them? The religious forms have failed humanity partly because the authorities have failed to grasp where the power and strength of their doctrine lies. Instead they repeat 6
Doctrine; more they know not. The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers. – The Zohar, iii. The Mysteries of the Faith (are) not to be divulged to all [...] It is requisite to hide in a mystery the wisdom spoken. – St. Clement of Alexandra, Stromateis
People believe in God like they believe in a sports team, which is absurd. God does not need clientele in order to exist or to be powerful or to be happy – those are all very infantile ideas which, if they are brought to fruition within the minds of those who hold them, become self-evidently ridiculous. Nevertheless, because people have been told to believe for so long now, they think it is absurd to not believe. Well, this is the unfortunate truth for the believers: what matters is not if you believe in God, but rather if you are experiencing God in greater and greater degrees. We need to know God, not believe in him. But this requires greater and greater sacrifices. Such sacrifices are great, but the reward is clarity of mind and a peaceful heart, which, by the way, is exactly what every person on this planet wants, knowingly or not. We must realize that everything in the universe has a cause, and being illuminated by Christ has its specific causes and conditions. If you satisfy them, then the result is natural. But, yes, it is necessary to sacrifice desire. You have to awaken your consciousness! When you awaken, your soul with be nourished with the super-substantial bread.
Do not love (psychological) sleep, lest you come to (psychological) poverty; Open your eyes (of insight), and you will be satisfied with bread (of wisdom). – Proverbs 20:13
identity is based upon different mundane and extravagant desires. From the desire to have children, to be well educated, to be respected or be thought of as cool, interesting, happy, or successful… or just to get drunk and have fun, to dace, to have a nice car, to acquire an extensive collection of LPs or perhaps vintage wine or plastic figurines… There are too many forms of desire to list. Our mind is confused because there is no continuity of consciousness within it; it is always fractured into many different conflicting desires which are expressed through the various calamities we produce daily. For example, one might hate their mother, and fear her, and feel sympathy for her all at once. This is evidence that our own mind is under control of many different factors simultaneously. This type of situation happens constantly, moment by moment, within our mind, yet it is very rare that we are aware of what is going on in our mind, because we are psychologically asleep. The vast majority of our desires are unconscious, and this is why we are unable to see what is really causing our problems. These desires are based upon illusory things, things that seem real, but when analyzed further, are not. Everything that we hold dear about our self is very ephemeral: it will go away. Every part of the self that is based upon things of this world will go away. Few take the time to realize this. With death, it is guaranteed that it will all go away. So what remains? When one sacrifices, they are preemptively removing everything that is temporal and illusory within their mind. By doing so, they are cultivating something, a quality of mind, which transcends time and is truly eternal. This is how we replace our false identity which causes all our suffering, with something else that does not have any relationship with “me,” “myself,” or “I.” By cultivating something
No one wants to awaken, because this would mean that we have to remove all the characters dwelling within our psychological building mentioned earlier. All the different selves within the self must be removed. Each one of them are different desires. Our entire
that has a direct relationship with the true nature of reality, a harmonious relationship with the true nature of reality is the result. This result is called happiness. But this is real happiness and love, not the garbage that is shown on television or in greeting cards. We suffer, we have problems, because the fundamental assumptions we make about our life and our self is totally at odds with reality. When we comprehend the true nature of reality, we work very intensely to remove everything that is false. But understand that it is impossible to sacrifice correctly without a profound comprehension in the mind. We are not talking about repression here. Repression of desires retards the mind because it drives desires further into the unconsciousness. This invokes deeper states of sleeping consciousness. Then what can one do with desire? People say we must express it then. But they are misguided, because the expression of desire will only strengthen it, just like putting fuel on a fire. Comprehension is the action which is beyond the mechanical expression or the mechanical repression of desire. Comprehension is the action which provides the elimination of desire. We need to comprehend every nook, every level, every single thing within our self. This is what the mind is for: to discern different phenomena of nature. True religion wants to use the mind for something more than watching television or making money. One way we do this through various forms of meditation. Every religion in their pristine form teaches meditation. Meditation is the way to comprehend our false nature and how it causes our daily suffering. This is the only way to remove
our hypocritical nature! In the Bible, our hypocritical nature is represented by the Pharisees. The cup is our mind, the outside of the cup is our external appearances.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within you are full of extortion and excess. - Matthew 23:25
Christ is the true nature of reality. Christmas comes from ChristMass, the christic ritual. A ritual is a symbolic representation of a greater, abstract truth. December 25th has been a very sacred date since the beginning of time because it represents the Winter Solstice. This is why the Druids and the followers of Mithra celebrated the Solar Divinity on December 25th. Christ itself is something universal, and it exists under different forms and different names in all the world’s religions.
The teachings of the Zend Avesta are in accordance with the doctrinal principles contained in the Egyptian book of the dead, and contain the Christprinciple. The Illiad of Homer, the Hebrew Bible, the Germanic Edda and the Sibylline Books of the Romans contain the same Christ-principle. All these are sufficient in order to demonstrate that Christ is anterior to Jesus of Nazareth. Christ is not one individual alone. Christ is a cosmic principle that we must assimilate within our own physical, psychic, somatic and spiritual nature […] Among the Persians, Christ is Ormuz, Ahura Mazda, terrible enemy of Ahriman (Satan), which we carry within us. Amongst the Hindus, Krishna is Christ; thus, the gospel of Krishna is very similar to that of Jesus of Nazareth. Among the Egyptians, Christ is Osiris and whosoever incarnated him was in fact an Osirified One. Amongst
the Chinese, the Cosmic Christ is Fu Hi, who composed the I-Ching (The Book of Laws) and who nominated Dragon Ministers. Among the Greeks, Christ is called Zeus, Jupiter, the Father of the Gods. Among the Aztecs, Christ is Quetzalcoatl, the Mexican Christ. In the Germanic Edda, Baldur is the Christ who was assassinated by Hodur, God of War, with an arrow made from a twig of mistletoe, etc. In like manner, we can cite the Cosmic Christ within thousands of ancient texts and old traditions which hail from millions of years before Jesus. The whole of this invites us to embrace that Christ is a cosmic principle contained within the essential principles of all religions. – Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony
With Christmas, we celebrate the birth of a child in a crowded manger. Most people are content with believing this happened twenty centuries ago, others some feel it is a silly story that was most likely made up. Both of these views miss the point, because Christmas is something that occurs here and now. Nothing important about religion is related with history. Everything that is important about religion is what is transpiring right now within your own consciousness. By understanding this tremendous fact we can get to the real point of Christmas, which is a didactic parable to help us understand the process in which man unites with God. This is what Jesus wanted to teach, and he taught by living his life in a way that mirrored the inner drama of religion. Those parts of his literal life which did not mirror the inner drama of religion where intentionally modified by those who understood the doctrine, so that the teachings were interwoven with the story. Thus it is with the story of the birth of Jesus. The literal Jesus was not literally born as the Bible says, because the Bible is not a history book, the Bible is a book to teach us the mysteries of religion. What is in the Bible is not the story of the literal Jesus, but the mythological Jesus, the archetype of the Man-God that any individual can and must emulate. 9
Bethlehem, the place of Jesus’ birth, means “house of bread” in Hebrew, “house of meat” in Arabic, and “tower of fire” in Chaldean. This fire is the fire of Christ. In Hebrew, shin ( )שrepresents fire. It looks like a candelabra with three wicks on fire, these are three fires of the Trinity. When we take Jehovah, or Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei ( )יהוהin Hebrew, and place a shin in the middle we get ,יהשוהor Yeshua, which means “savior” and is Romanized as Jesus. So, the birth of Jesus is related with a spiritual fire. The whole mystery of Christianity is related with returning the Fire. Jehovah places the Fire within man, and if man is able to work with that Fire correctly, it is returned and the inner Savior is the result. This spiritual fire or energy begins within us in a very animalistic place. This is why Jesus is born in the manger. Our psychological state of mind is very passionate, and among its multitudinous forms are many sexual desires that wish to brutally fornicate like animals. That Fire within man must originate somewhere and this is the only place it can originate. Christ is the King of Kings, so the King Herod however wants no part of that, he wants to kill every child before one can grow to take away his power. Herod is every one of us. Herod is the animal mind itself. Herod is the King of this humanity. Herod is the King of our actions, our thoughts, and our words. He kills many children, many aspirants of Wisdom. Immediately after the Christ child is born, the henchmen of Herod attempt to kill the child. The henchmen of Herod are things like subjective intellectual reasoning, fear, sensual desires, etc. Herod says, “What will my friends think if I change my behavior?” or “God made me this way, I was born this way, therefore this who I really am and to change that would be wrong.” Few of the
children ever have a chance to grow before they are murdered by the decrees of Herod. When the Christ child does begin to grow, he grows within the “tower of fire,” that is Bethlehem. This tower is the same thing as the Throne of God. A throne is a common religious symbol, but within our biology the throne of God is our central nervous system, and in particular our spinal cord and brain. Why? Because this is where the Christic energy is “seated” within man. The spinal cord begins at the sex, passes through the chest (heart) to end at the brain. Everything about our actions, feelings, and thoughts are related with the spinal cord. The spinal cord must become the Tower of Fire through the Fire of Christ. In the beginning this fire is related with sexual desire and subjective reasoning, but through the Drama of the Christ, it transforms into sexual strength and enlightened intuition. In other words, the Fire is transformed into the Light. Again, this light is the Halo of the saints (which is depicted not only in the iconography of Christianity, but in many other religions as well), the tongues of fire above the heads of the Apostles in the Book of Acts. Devi Kundalini is the same fire. When this is happening, the Lord has the capacity to come down and bestow gifts to God’s Children. This is the true nature of Santa Claus, which is a symbol that has been very, very adulterated. Santa Claus is related with the Germanic God named Odin, which would descend down the
chimney. This chimney is the spinal cord, and gifts are the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, the supernatural powers of the soul. Understand that within our own nature is the Seed of Christ, which exists as a fluidic-magnetic energy that in its coarsest form is sexual energy. Through the retention and transformation of this energy, its spiritual essence begins to ascend. This, in turn gives the capacity to receive God from above. So this how man reunites with God. This is why those who are interested in religion must keep guard of their sexual nature. Any Priest must be perfectly chaste in thought, word, and deed. If not, then he cannot be effective. His word will lack power. His sermons will not inspire. His Eucharistic function will be useless. The Priest is responsible for taking the Christic forces from above and placing them in the bread and wine, but if the Priest does not know how preserve his own “oil,” and to make the Fire into Light, then Christ from above cannot come into the host. The fact that the Church has been rocked with sexual scandal proves that they know nothing about these matters. The Church has forgotten how to work with the sexual energy. Three Magi, or Kings, visit the Christ child. Magi means Priest. There is a Black King, a White King, and a Yellow King. These three Kings represent different stages of Christification, but all of them follow the Star of Bethlehem in order to reach Christ.
The Star of Bethlehem represents the interior spiritual star, which is the root of our existence. To always be guided by the light of this star is to always remember our inner Being, our true nature. We have to become conscious of our own self. We have to place attention on our own experience in a continuous fashion. If we are not being conscious, then we are being asleep. Sleep leads to ignorance, and ignorance leads to suffering. Physical sleep is one thing, psychological sleep is another. Psychological sleep is a state of the psyche, or soul. Normally, we are born asleep, grow old asleep, and die psychologically asleep. Thus, because of this, we fail to accomplish the superior potential that lies dormant within our consciousness. A man or woman who has their consciousness awakened even a bit can become a paladin for great humanitarian efforts. This is why meditation is so important: a routine of meditation is the best foundation for the expansion and strengthening of conscious attention. The ones who achieves the full development of the consciousness are the ones who become authentic Prophets. The first king, the Black King, represents the earlier stages, where the desires of the soul are still very much alive. One can be very holy, very pure, in comparison to the average person, and still be full of vice in comparison to Christ. Christ is a perfect-multiple unity. Those who incarnate Christ have no “I.”
The second king is White, because he has already removed his ego, his self-willed psychological aspects. This is a supreme level of psychological death. Psychological death is to die within one’s self. When the self is out of the way, the bliss of the direct perception of the true nature of reality is able to be received and comprehended. With death, Christ kills death, and what remains is immortal. The third type, the Yellow King, is made of pure gold. Gold is a spiritual substance related with the Sun. The Yellow King is wiser than the White King, thus the atoms of Christ shine more brilliantly in the Yellow King. The Yellow King is the one who has died and resurrected within all the levels of their Being. There are levels and levels of mastery. Only the Yellow King is the Resurrected King. But among the Resurrected, there are more levels. There are some who have assimilated the order (cosmos) and knowledge of an entire Solar System. Thus, they have dominion of a Solar System. Others have dominion of the galaxy, and still others who have dominion over the Infinite. Just as planets are groups of matter, solar systems are groups of planets, and galaxies are groups of solar systems. An Infinite is a group of galaxies. There exists Masters who have the wisdom of an Infinite. Beyond one Infinite lies another Infinite. They are called as such because nominal causality is restricted to the curvature of the Infinite
it originated within. Every cause has an effect, but it is limited to the Infinite it was created in. The origin of Christ, however, is beyond the Infinite. The origin is called the Ain Soph in Kabbalistic terms, which is the Absolute. Only a Master who has dominion over many Infinites has the right to ascend into the Ain Soph, the “Limitless Light.” This is called a Paramarthasatya. Jesus is a Paramarthasatya. The only cause which can transcend the Infinites is one who has dominion over multiple Infinites, which is the Paramarthasatya (“vehicle of perfect cognizance”).
best, because with death comes what is new, and only what is new can be in harmony with what is now. We like when things are new. We like seeing new babies. We like having new cars, and new clothes. We like owning a new house and have a new type of drink and food to taste. But ironically we do not want to be psychologically new, no. Instead we enjoy the shackles of our experience, falsely believing it to be the essence of life. Paradoxically we feel trapped by life while simultaneously not want to change our self. This is because we fail to understand that life is always a psychological mirror: what is in your outer life is a reflection of your interior processes. Instead of trying to change life, we need to change our self. Everything else in life is of little value. Christ is the “I AM.” When Moses saw the burning bush, the Christmas tree on engulfed in the Fire and Light of Christ, it said “I AM THAT I AM.” This was Christ within Moses. Christ, within Jesus, said:
Think not that I AM come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I AM come to set a man at variance
Before any level of Christ can be born within, one has to become a real human, which is someone who has psychological equilibrium. That is quite an exception today. People are angry, jealous, lustful, greedy, lazy and gluttonous, and many admit and even like being this way. Often they feel as if these qualities make life interesting and without them life would be unbearable. A million rationales are used to keep our “self” alive, to not die psychologically to our imperfections, but all of them ignore the true nature of reality. Because of this, suffering will continue. It is better to psychologically die. To die is the 12
against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. – Matthew 10:34-40
This pamphlet is a short summary of an ancient doctrine called Gnosis. To learn more, you can read the works of Samael Aun Weor, including:
Christ entering in man represents a revolutionary psychological transformation, a sword which does not make peace with the errors of man, but instead works to make him perfect. He is at war with man’s errors. Christ is not interested in the customs of family, and the actions required to receive Christ are at odds with customs of the family, of the nation, and of the world. Most radically, Christ is against the customs of the “household,” our psychological household, our own mind. Christ is against all darkness, all ignorance of the mind. Being that the mind of man is almost entirely darkness, the nature of Christ is antithetical to the current nature of man. This is why no one understands Christ and no one wants to accept the truth behind Christmas:
Though Christ a thousand times in Bethlehem be born And not within thyself, thy soul will be forlorn. The Cross on Golgotha thou lookest to in vain Unless within thyself it be set up again – Angelus Silesius
