Every year, the Sun makes an elliptical journey which begins exactly on December, 25, returning to the South Pole up to Antarctica; for exactly this reason it is worth our reflecting on its great significance. At this time the cold begins here in the north, because the Sun leaves for the southern regions and on December 24th, it will have reached its utmost southern position. If the Sun did not head northwards again after December 25., we would freeze to death. Our whole planet would become a block of ice and all living creatures would perish. Therefore, it is worth thinking about the event of Christmas. The Sun-Christ must move to provide us with life, and, in the vernal equinox, He crucifies himself on Earth - this is when grape and wheat get ripe. It is precisely in Springtime that the Lord should go through his life, passion and death, to soon resurrect. Holy Week is in Springtime (in the northern hemisphere). The physical Sun is nothing but the symbol of the Spiritual Sun, the Sun-Christ. When the ancient civilisations worshipped the Sun, when they bowed themselves to it, they were not revering the physical Sun, but the Spiritual Sun, the Midnight Sun, The SunChrist. No doubt it is this Sun-Christ which must guide us in the Upper Worlds of Cosmic Consciousness. Every mystic, who learns how to travel at will outside his physical body is guided by the Midnight Sun - by the Cosmic Christ. We need to learn about the symbolic movements of the Midnight Sun. It is He who guides the Initiate, who orientates and indicates what should be done or not. I am speaking in the deepest esoteric meaning, taking with understanding that every Initiate knows how to leave his own body at will - that those who do not know how to do this are only beginners, people who are taking their first steps in these studies. If you are following this path, you must know how to be guided by the Midnight Sun, by the Sun-Christ. You must learn how to recognise His signs and His movements. If we see Him fading in the sunset, what does it mean? It simply means that something inside us should die. If we see Him rising in the East, what is the meaning of this? Something should be born within us. When we are successful in the esoteric trials, He shines in His fullness on the horizon. The Lord guides us in the Upper Levels, and we need to recognise His signs. Dupuis and many others studied the marvellous happening which is Christmas, undoubtedly - and according to Dupuis- all the ancient civilisations celebrated Christmas.
As the physical Sun moves northwards to bring life to all creation, so does the Midnight Sun, the Spiritual Sun, the Sun-Christ, providing us with life if we learn to follow His commandments. The solar event is obviously mentioned in the Holy Scripture and one has to know to read between the lines. Every year we go through the Solar Cosmic Drama in the whole Macrocosmos; I repeat, every year. Take into consideration that the Sun-Christ must crucify himself every year, enact the whole drama of His life, passion and death, soon to resurrect in everything that is, was and will be, that is, in all creation. Therefore, this is how we all are granted life from Sun-Christ. It is also certain that the Sun every year, when He moves southwards, saddens us in the North, because He is then giving life to other regions. The long Winter nights are hard. At Christmas time, the days are short and the nights long. Let us reflect on all this and try to understand the Cosmic Drama. The Sun-Christ needs to be born in our hearts, He must be born in us. In the Holy Scriptures they mention Bethlehem and a barn where He is born; this barn in Bethlehem is inside each of us, here and now; and to be precise, it is in the interior of this barn that the animals of desire reside, all these passionate "Is" which we carry in our psyche, that is clear. "Bethlehem" itself is an esoteric name; when the great KABIR lived on Earth, the village of Bethlehem was inexistent, so this makes it entirely symbolic. BET is a Chaldean radical which means Tower of Fire. So we can say that BET is Tower of Fire. who can ignore that Bet corresponds to Tower of Bet, Tower of Fire ? Thus, the term Bethlehem is entirely symbolic. When the initiate works with the Sacred Fire, after totally eliminating the psychological aggregates from his inner nature, when he is in fact carrying out the Great Work, he will certainly pass through the Venust Initiation. Christ’s descent to the heart of a man is a transcendental cosmic and human happening; such an event corresponds to the Venust Initiation. Unfortunately, the world has not really understood Christ. Many suppose Christ was solely Jesus of Nazareth, and they are mistaken. Jesus of Nazareth, as a man - or better yet JESHUA BEN PANDIRÁ – received the Venust Initiation, he incarnated the Christ, but he is not the only one who received this initiation. Hermes Trimegistus, the Thrice Greatest God Ibis of Thot, was also an incarnation of the Christ. John the Baptist, whom many considered to be Christus, the Anointed, undoubtedly received the Venust Initiation and incarnated Him. The Baptist Gnostics in the Holy Land, claimed that the real Messiah was John and Jesus was an initiate who followed him. At that time, there were disputes among Baptists, Gnostics, Essenes and other groups. We should understand Christ just as He is, not as a person, or an individual. Christ is beyond Personality, Ego and Individuality. According to the authentic esoteric knowledge, He is the LOGOS, the Solar Logos symbolised by the Sun. Now we can understand why the Incas adored the Sun, the NAHUAS worshipped the Sun, as well as the Mayas, the Egyptians and so on. It was not the worshipping of the physical sun but
what was hidden in it, naturally they adored the Solar Logos, the Second Logos. This Logos is the perfect multiple unity. Variety is unity. For the Cosmic Christ there is no separate individuality; in the Lord we are all one... I can remember a certain, shall we say, esoteric experience, that I had several years ago. At the time, in deep meditation, I must have reached Sammadhi, the Mantéia state, the Ecstasy, as it is called in western esoterism. On that occasion I was eager to know something about the baptism of Jesus, the Christ. Since we know, he was baptised by John. I attained the perfect Dharana, that is, concentration, Dhyana, or meditation, and I finally achieved Samadhi; I dare say it was a Maha-Samadhi, because I totally freed myself of the Astral, Mental, Causal, Budhic and even Atmic bodies. Thus, I was able to wholly reabsorb my conscience to the Logos. And so, in that ecstasy, like a Dragon of Wisdom, I carried out the following investigation. I immediately saw myself in the Holy Land inside a temple, extraordinarily I saw myself converted into John the Baptist, in a sacred gown; I saw when Jesus was brought in, clothed in His white garments - a white tunic. I addressed Him saying: " Jesus, remove Thy tunic, thine garments for I shall baptize Thee". After that, I took some olive oil out of a bowl, led Him inside the Sanctuary, anointed Him with oil, I poured water on Him and recited the mantrams and rites. After this, the Master sat down on a chair, I put everything back into place and ended the ceremony. I saw myself turned into John ! Of course, once the ecstasy, the Samadhi was over, I thought to myself: "How is that possible, how can I be John, the Baptist? I am certainly not John the Baptist! I was very perplexed and decided: I will concentrate again, but this time I am not going to concentrate on John, I will concentrate on Jesus of Nazareth". Then I chose to concentrate on Jesus, the Great Master, It was a long and hard task. I went deeper and deeper into concentration; I soon passed Dharana, the concentration stage; Dhyana meditation, and from this state to Samadhi, or Ecstasy. I made a great effort to get rid of my bodies: Physical, Astral, Mental, Causal Bhuddic and Atmic, until my Consciousness was absorbed into the Solar Logos. And in this state, with a great desire to know about Jesus, the Christ, I saw myself turning into Him, performing miracles and wonders in the Holy Land, healing the sick, restoring sight to the blind, etc, and lastly I saw myself dressed in the sacred garments in front of John inside the temple: "Jesus, take off Thine garments for I will baptise Thee." The roles were changed, I was not John but Jesus, and I was baptised by John. When Samadhi was over, on returning to my physical body, I perfectly confirmed, as clearly as possible, that in the world of the Cosmic Christ we are all one. If I had wanted to meditate on any of you, in the world of Logos, I could have been transformed into any of you, living your lives, since in the Logos there is no individuality, nor personality, nor Ego, there we are all Buddha, we are all one; in the Logos there is no separation nor
individuality. The Logos is the Perfect Multiple Unity, it is energy which moves and beats in all Creation, existing in every atom, in every electron, every proton and expresses itself vividly through any man who is duly prepared for it. Well, we meant to clarify the event in Bethlehem. When a man is duly prepared, he is initiated in fire - but, as mentioned before, he must be duly prepared - and by Venust Initiation he is able to incarnate the Cosmic Christ in himself, within his own nature. It would have been useless for Jesus to have been born in Bethlehem if he were not born in our hearts as well. In vain would He have died and resurrected, if He does not die and resurrects within us. This is the nature of our "Salvator Salvandus" . The Intimate Christ must save us from within, He must save all of us. Those who await His coming in the remote future are mistaken. Christ must from within, His second coming is from within, from deep inside our consciousness. That is why it is written: "If you hear someone say in public that He is the Christ, do not believe, and if they say "Jesus is preaching in the Temple"; do not believe it. Now the Lord will not come from outside, but from inside, He will come from the bottom of our hearts, if we are ready for it. Paul clarifies: "From His virtue we all take, grace by grace". Carefully analysing Paul’s writings we will observe he seldom mentions the historical Christ; every time Paul refers to Jesus Christ, he refers to the inner Jesus, the Intimate Christ that shall arise from the depths of our Spirit, from our Soul. As long as we have not incarnated Him, it can not be said that we have Eternal Life, for only He can rescue our souls from Hades, only He can truly grant us life in abundance. Therefore, we should be less dogmatic and learn to consider the Intimate Christ; this would be wonderful... All symbolism related to the Nativity is alchemical and cabalistic. It is known that the Three Kings of the Maggi came to worship Him guided by a star.; This can only be understood by means of Alchemy, because it is alchemical. What are they? The Star and the King of the Maggi? I tell you this Star is nothing else but the Seal of Salomon, the six-pointed star; the symbol of the Solar Logos. The upper triangle stands for Sulphur, or Fire. The lower one , what does it stand for? Mercury, water, but to what kind of water do the Alchemists refer? They say: Water that does not wet hands, the Humid Metallic Radical, the EXIOHEHARI, the Sacred Sperm. Undoubtedly, only by means of the transmutation of the sexual secretions can one elaborate this extraordinary Water, the pure waters of Amrita, the Mercury of the Sacred Philosophy. We should meditate on the Seal of Salomon, the upper triangle is a vivid representation of Sulphur, that is, the Holy Fire, the Fire of Holy Ghost must fecundate the Mercury of the Secret Philosophy. No doubt it is hard to understand the Star of Bethelerem, if we do not refer to the Seal of Salomon and to Alchemy. Mercury is the Metallic Soul of the Holy Sperm. Sulphur is the Holy Fire of Kundalini in the human being. We go further: Sulphur must fecundate Mercury; with the Mercury fecundated by Sulphur one can compose the Upper Existential Bodies. Therefore, if we can not
understand this, we would not be able to understand either the Seal of Salomon or the Star that appeared to the Kings of the Maggi. For better understanding about the three kinds of Mercury: The first is referred to as the "gross quicksilver" - the Sacred Sperm itself. The second Mercury is precisely the Metallic Soul of the first. By means of transmutation the Sperm becomes energy; this Sexual Energy is named the Metallic Soul of the Sperm. The third and the most important one , which is exactly the Mercury fecundated by Sulphur. All this is complicated and hard to understand, but, if you pay attention you can picture what I mean. If you want me to explain about Christmas, I must explain it as it is, or not to explain. The first thing we have is the Gross Mercury, the Holy Sperm, secondly, the Sexual Energy originated from the transmutation of the Sperm; and finally, the Mercury fecundated by Sulphur, or, in other words, the Sexual Energy already fecundated by the Holy Fire, a mixture of Energy and Fire which goes up the spine leading us to the Intimate Self Realization of the Being. This third Mercury is the “Arqueus” of the Greeks; in “Arqueus”there is Salt, Sulphur and obviously Mercury. Up there in the Macrocosmos, the nebulae consist of Salt, Sulphur and Mercury, it is the “Arqueus”of the Greeks, which produces the cosmic unities. "Here below" we must produce the “Arqueus”. How? By means of sexual transmutation. From this “Arqueus”, mixture of Salt, Sulphur and Mercury, the Superior Existential Bodies of the Being will be born. Obviously, someone who has the Astral, Mental and Causal Bodies becomes a real Man, that is, is granted animistic and spiritual principles. It is clear that, at the beginning, there is only the Gross Quick Silver and it has to be transmuted, i. e. , the sexual secretions have to be transmuted, sublimated and converted into energy; this energy being called Mercury, the Metallic Soul of the Sperm. This energy goes up through IDA and PINGALA towards the brain. Later, this same energy joins negative and positive poles in the COCCYX, close to TRIBENI and Fire is roused. Fire fecundates the energy. Fire and energy mixed together go up the spinal medulla up to the brain; and the excess of this Mercury (fecundated by Sulphur) is crystallised into the Higher Existential Being Bodies The first body to be formed is the Astral Body, then the Mental Body followed by the Causal Body. When someone possesses the Astral, Mental and Causal Bodies, he is granted the animistic spiritual principles - i. e., Soul and Spirit, and he is converted into a
man, into a Real Man. This way, forming the bodies is vital. But forming the bodies is something, while developing them to perfection is something else. No doubt Salt, Sulphur and Mercury are part of everything. Wherever there is matter, there is salt, all matter can be reduced to salt, and salt can be converted into Gold. Therefore, the Higher Existential Being Bodies are made of Salt, Sulphur and Mercury. This Salt, which is present in any of these bodies is converted into Gold by means of the combined action of Sulphur and Mercury. Converting these bodies into Gold, into fine vehicles of Gold, would be the point – and this is the Great Work. Such a prodigy could not be performed without special help. This wonderful help is the Christmas of the Heart. The Christ must be born in the heart of man, so this gigantic task of changing the Higher Existential Being Bodies into vehicles of Pure Gold could be accomplished. Let us take one of these bodies; for instance, the Astral Body. Let us imagine a person who has an Astral Body; one is aware of having the Astral Body when one can move consciously and positively with it, travel with it from one planet to another. Let us picture someone who has this Astral Body, but is working in order to convert it in a vehicle of pure gold, that is, to make it perfect. This can be done only by eliminating the Dry Mercury, the “psychological aggregates” and the Arsenicated Sulphur, or so to speak, the bloody atoms of lust. This person will surely need help. If he manages to eliminate the Dry Mercury and the Arsenicated Sulphur or poisonous sulphur, then his Astral Body will be converted into a vehicle of Pure Gold. This is a very hard task; but fortunately, the Inner Christ intervenes and helps to eliminate all this dry Mercury and the poisoned Sulphur and, finally, as a result of all these labours, the astral vehicle will be converted into a Golden Body. However, before the Astral Body changes into a precious golden vehicle, many stages have to be experienced. The first stage is symbolised by the black colour, by the Black Raven and ruled by Saturn. Why? Because the Initiate will enter a hard work of dying; obviously, he must eliminate, obliterate and disintegrate all the inhuman elements he carries in his Astral Body; until the white colour is obtained; which is fundamental. This white colour is symbolised by the White Dove; the Egyptian initiates wore garments made of white linen to symbolise chastity; purity. The third symbol is the Yellow Eagle, the Initiate is allowed to wear the yellow tunic. In the fourth stage of the work the Initiate will receive the purple and, in reaching this stage, his astral body should have been converted in a Pure Golden vehicle of the best quality.
The chief of all this alchemical work is precisely the Inner Christ. Wise men say that Salt, Sulphur and Mercury are the passive tools of the Great Work; the most important though, is the Inner Magnesium. This Magnesium, mentioned by Paracelsus, is nothing but the Inner Christ, the Lord. He is the one who truly performs the Great Work. I took the Astral Body as an example, but similar work has to be done with each and every one of the Higher Existential Being Bodies. Without this inner Magnesium from Alchemy, this work would be absolutely impossible; that is why, to begin the Great Work, we must certainly incarnate the Inner Christ. He is born in the stable of our body, where we have all the animals of desire, of the lower passions. He must grow up, develop and ascend the various stages to become a Man among men, taking into his charge all our processes: mental, sexual, emotional, of will, etc, to be as an ordinary man among ordinary men. Even being perfect, with no sins, the Christ has to live as a sinner among sinners, an unknown man among unknown men; this is the crude reality. However (Christ) grows up and develops, while he eliminates within himself the undesirable elements we carry inside. His integration with us is such that he takes all responsibility on his shoulders. He converted Himself into a sinner like us, even though not a sinner - feeling temptations in flesh and blood, living like any other man. And so, little by little, as we eliminate the undesirable elements from our Psyche, not as something strange, but as something which is His, he grows inside ourselves; that is exactly what is marvellous. If it were not like that, it would be impossible to perform the Great Work. It is He who has to eliminate all this Dry Mercury, all this Poisonous Sulphur so that the Higher Existential Being Bodies may be converted into vehicles of Pure Gold, best-quality Gold. The Three Kings of the Maggi who came to pay homage to Baby Jesus represent the colours of the Great Work. The first colour is Black, when we are perfecting the body. This, I reiterate, stands for the Black Raven of Death, it is the Work of Saturn symbolised by the Black Maggi King; then we experience death, the death of our desires, passions, etc., in the Astral World. Then, comes the White Dove, that is, the moment we disintegrate all the I’s of the Astral World, we then acquire the right to wear a white linen tunic, the tunic of the Egyptian Phtah, the tunic of Isis; evidently symbolised by the White Dove which is the second King - the White King. When already advanced in the perfection of the Astral Body, the yellow colour would appear, or rather, one would earn the right to wear the yellow tunic; then the Yellow Eagle appears which reminds us of the Third King , who is of the yellow race.
Finally, the crowning of the Labour is Purple. When a body, be it Astral, Mental or Causal becomes Pure Gold, it receives the Purple of the Kings, because it triumphed. It’s the purple that every King of Maggi carry on his shoulder, because he is a King. So, as you can see, the Three Maggi Kings are not three individuals, as many believe, but symbols of the fundamental colours of the Great Work and the very Jesus Christ is intimate, lives within us. Jesus in Hebrew is Yeshua; Yeshua means Saviour and as Saviour, our private Yeshua has to be born in the stable we have in us to carry out the Great Work; He is the inner Magnesium of the Alchemist Laboratory. The Great Master should arise in the depths of our Soul, our Spirit. The most difficult thing for the Intimate Christ after His birth in man´s heart, is exactly the Cosmic Drama, his Via Crucis. In the Gospel, the rabble appears demanding the Lord´s crucifixion; these are not the crowds of yesterday, of a remote past, as one may suppose, of something that happened 1975 years ago. No, sirs, these multitudes are within us, they are our famous “I’s”. Within each person there are thousands of people, the “I hate”, the “I am jealous”, the “I envy”, the “I of covetousness”; in fact, all our defects; and each defect is a different I. Of course, these mobs we carry in us, which are our famous "I’s", are the ones who cry: Crucify Him, Crucify Him! With respect to the Three Traitors, we already know that in Christ’s Gospel, they are Judas, Pilate and Caiaphas. Who is Judas? The Demon of Desire. Who is Pilate? The Demon of Mind. Who is Caiaphas? The Demon of Unwillingness. But it should be made clear so that it may be understood. Judas , the Demon of Desire, exchanges the Intimate Christ for thirty silver pieces: 30 (3-0), 3; this is the cabalistic allusion, or rather, exchange Him for material things, for money, for drink, for luxury, for animal pleasure, etc. As to Pilate, he is the Demon of the Mind; this one always "washes his hands", he is never to blame, for everything he can find a justification or evasion, he never feels responsible for anything. In fact, we are always justifying all the psychological defects that we have in our interior. We never think we are guilty. Many people tell me: I think I am a good person, I don’t kill, I don’t steal, I am charitable, I am not envious; to tell the truth, all the virtuous, perfect, according to themselves; I don’t know what I have to say to so much perfection... So, considering things like they are, in their naked reality, this Pilate always washes his hands, he never feels guilty. What about Caiaphas? I frankly consider him the most perverted of all. Think of what Caiaphas represents: on many occasions the Intimate Christ elects a Priest, a Master or
Initiate to guide and graze his flock, He gives him authority and puts him at the fore of a congregation, and the Priest, Master, Initiate, etc, instead of guiding his people wisely, sells the Sacraments, prostitutes the Altar, fornicates with the followers, etc, to be precise, betrays the Intimate Christ, that is what Caiaphas does. Is this painful? Of course, it is horrible, it is the lowest betrayal of all and there is no doubt that many religions prostituted themselves and many priests betrayed the Intimate Christ; I do not refer to any particular sect, but to all the religions in the world. There can be esoteric groups led by real initiates, and these, often traitors, have betrayed the Intimate Christ. All of this is painful, infinitely painful. Caiaphas is the dirtiest thing to exist. These three traitors lead the Intimate Christ to suffering. Reflect for a moment upon the Intimate Christ deep inside each of you, master of all mental and emotional processes, fighting to save you, suffering terribly; your own “I’s” protesting against Him, blaspheming, putting a crown of thorns on His head, whipping Him. Well, this is the dark reality of the facts, this is the Cosmic Drama we experience within. Finally, this Intimate Christ would climb to Calvary (that is obvious) and go down to the grave, and with His death kill death, this is the last thing He does. Later on, He resurrects in the Initiate and the Initiate resurrects in Him. Then the Great Work is fulfilled "consumatum est". Thus, through the centuries we have seen the Resurrected Master arise; we should remember a Hermes Trimegistus, a Moria, the great Master of Force from Tibet, we must remember Count Cagliostro, who is still alive and Saint-Germain, who in 1939 visited Europe once more. This Saint-Germain worked actively in the 17th., 18th. and 19th. centuries, however, continues to exist physically, he is a Resurrected Master. Why are they Resurrected Masters? Because owing to the Intimate Christ, they obtained Resurrection. Without the Intimate Christ, Resurrection would not be possible. Those who suppose that by the simple fact of dying physically, one has the right to the Resurrection of the Dead are worthy of Compassion; once more speaking in a Socratic style, they are not only ignorant but ignore the fact that they ignore. Resurrection is something for which you have to work, and work here and now, and it is necessary to resurrect in flesh and blood (and alive). One should achieve Immortality right now, personally; that is how one should consider the Mystery of Christ. The whole Cosmic Drama in itself is extraordinary, marvellous and really does begin with the Christmas of the Heart. What follows related to the Drama, the flight to Egypt, when Herode sends to kill all the boys and He has to flee, it is all symbolic, totally symbolic.
It’s said, in an apocryphal gospel that Jesus, Joseph and Mary had to flee from Egypt and had to spend several days under a fig tree, and from this fig tree sprung a stream of the purest water - one needs to understand this: this fig tree represents sex: they go on to say that they fed on the fruit of this fig tree; the fruit of the Tree of Science of Good and Evil. The water that flowed was pure, that flowed from the fig tree is nothing but the Mercury of the Secret Philosophy. As to the beheading of the innocent babies, a lot has been written about this. Nicholas Flamel has left us engraved on the cemetery walls in Paris, scenes showing cutting of throats of the innocent. Why this cruel cutting of throats? Nonetheless, it is also alchemical, every initiate has to be beheaded. But what does the Intimate Christ have to behead in us? It should simply cut the head of the Ego, the I, the Myself, and the blood which flows from the beheading is the Fire, the Sacred Fire in which the Initiate has to purify himself, cleanse himself, whiten himself. All this is profoundly esoteric, nothing can be taken literally. Following on we see the miraculous feats of our great Master. He walked on the water, as the Intimate Christ has to walk on the Waters of Life. Giving sight to those who cannot see, preaching the word to bring light, opening the ears of those who do not want to listen, so that they may hear the Word. When the Lord has already grown in the initiate, he has to take the word and to explain to others about the way, cure the lepers; there is no-one who is not leprous, this leprosy is the pluralized I, this is the epidemic that we all carry within, the leprosy which we should clean ourselves of. Those who are paralysed are still not on the Path to Self-Realization, the Son of Man should cure the paralysed so that they may walk towards the Mount of Being. One has to understand this more intimately, more deeply; this is not a remote past, it must be lived within us, here and now. If we begin to mature a little, we will learn how to appreciate the message which the Great Kabir Jesus brought to Earth. In any case, we must go through Three Purifications, based on iron and fire - this is the meaning of the Three Nails on the Cross. And the word INRI says a lot. We know that esoterically INRI is fire; we need to go through Three Purifications of iron and fire to attain Resurrection, otherwise it would be impossible to do it. He, who resurrects, transforms radically, is converted into a Man-Gold, he is a hierophant of the status of an Hermes, a Quetzalcoatl or Buddha. But it is necessary to carry out the Great Work. In truth, one could not understand the four Gospels if one did not study Alchemy and the Kabala, because the Gospels are alchemists and cabalistic; which is obvious.
The Jews had three holy books. The first one is the body of the doctrine, the Bible. The second one is the soul of the doctrine, the Talmud, in which the national Jewish soul resides. And the third one is the spirit of the doctrine, the Zohar where we have the Rabbi´s Kabala. The Bible, the body of the doctrine is written under a key. If we want to study the Bible analysing and relating verses, we are doing so in an ignorant, empirical and absurd way. The greatest proof of this is that all the dead sects which, up to today, nurtured on the empirical interpretation of the Bible, could not come to an agreement. If there are thousands of sects that follow the Bible, it means that none of them have understood. The keys to its interpretation are in the Zohar, written by Simon Ben Iochai, the great enlightened Rabbi. There we can find the keys to the interpretation of the Bible. So, it is necessary to "open" the Zohar. If we want to know about Christ, about the Son of God, we should study the Tree of Life. When one studies the “Tree of Life” one has to delve into the issue of the Ten Sephirot of the Hebrew Kabala. Now I am going to talk about the Ten Sephirot not from top to bottom, but the contrary, from bottom to top according to what the Count of Saint Germain once said to me: “in these days, we have to work from the lower to the higher...” The truth is that there is no other remedy, being that humanity is excessively materialistic. So, let us talk about the Tree of Life starting from the bottom to the top. The first Sephirot is Malchut. The exact definition of Malchut is the physical world in which we live, the tridimensional world of Euclid. The scientists may be aware of the mechanics of the phenomena, but what do they know about the vital essence? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! A physical body is composed of organs - that is why it is denominated organism - the organs are composed of cells, these composed by molecules and the latter by atoms. If we fraction any atom we liberate energy. Scientists may play with the biomechanics of the phenomena, but they can not create life. If we place on the laboratory table all the chemical substances that compose the male and female gametes, such as the sperms and ovules, and command the scientists to cerate a gamete, I am sure they can do it with the powerful microscopes. But we are absolutely certain that these artificial gametes will never produce a human organism .
Although they have created powerful rockets that travel to the moon, supersonic aircrafts and so forth, the scientists are not capable of creating a simple artificial vegetable seed that may germinate. Alfonso Herrera, the Mexican that created the Theory of Plasmogeny produced an artificial cell, but one that was lifeless, a dead cell. It is possible to move vegetable seeds, coffee seeds for instance, from one type of soil to another; it is possible to give and take seeds from one person to another, do artificial insemination. All this is possible. But all that is really done is the manipulation of what nature has already created. The scientists are not able to produce a seed that can turn into something live. We have never observed it being done and never will. Conclusion: Life is something different; the human organism needs a “nexus formativus”, according to Emmanuel Kant, the philosopher from Koenigsberg, to sustain itself. And this “nexus formativus” is the Vital Body or “lingam sharira” for the Hindus. The vital support of the living cell, the “Yesod” of the Hebrew Kabala. As our physical body contains in itself for self-preservation and support this vital body, so do the plants, any organism that is alive and also the whole Planet Earth. So, the entire Earth contains it’s vitality, a vital foundation, Yesod. And within this Earth’s Yesod is the life of our world. Delving deeper into the subject, we can examine the fifth co-ordinate. Besides the vital world there is also the astral world. The dead inhabit the astral world after they have abandoned the physical body; in the astral world there are the columns of angels and demons. The initiate can learn how to act in the astral world if he so wishes. We may teach methods through which it is possible to enter into the astral world as desired. This astral world is precisely the Kabalistic Hod. Beyond the astral world we find the world of the cosmic mind, the famous “Netsach” of the Hebrews. The Earth possesses a mind, the cosmic mind or the planetary mind which is existent in everything that is, has been or will be. Our own mind is a fraction of the planetary mind. This planetary mind or mental world is denominated “Netsach” (in the Kabala) but its total extension (world of mind) was widely studied by all Schools of Regeneration. Carrying on our analyses of the Tree of Life, we may enter the world of natural causes, the Causal World. The Causal World is really the Temple of the Fraternity of the Inner Light, which was not built by human hands. We encounter in this causal world varying chains of cosmic causation; every effect has a cause, every cause produces an effect. Every cause transforms itself in effect and this effect converts itself into the cause of a new effect; causes and effects are accordingly linked.
In the causal world, as stated, is the principle of the man known as human soul and it was denominated Tipheret, which is very interesting. The human soul is male and the spiritual soul is female. In the world of Tipheret we find the human soul, or what there is of humanity in us. When the Intimate Christ comes to our aid, obviously, He will emerge in Tipheret, actually, in the causal world, due to the fact that the causes of our errors are in the Causal World and He has to eliminate the causes of our errors. It is necessary that the Cosmic Christ humanise himself, so that He can be born within us; because He is a cosmic and universal force lying latent in every atom of the infinite. To be able to humanise Himself, it is necessary to penetrate into the womb of the Divine Mother Kundalini. How can we understand that ? Within all of us there is our Father in Secret, and also our Divine Mother Kundalini. When the eternal male unfolds into the eternal female, the Divine Mother emerges; She nurtures the “Logos” in her womb when He descends from His high position and gives birth to Him. That is why it is stated that she is a virgin before the delivery and after it. And it is from within Her that this little boy Jesus is given birth, the Intimate Jesus Christ, our own Jeshua that has come to save us. He then emerges within the human soul when the initiation of Tipheret is received. He manifests Himself through the human soul in the causal world. As a matter of fact, He emerges from this special place to be able to eliminate the causes of our errors that are also located there. Farther beyond the world of Tipheret, or the world of natural causes, there is Geburah, which is the world of the spiritual soul. It is called the Buddhic or Intuitional World in Buddhism. It is also called the world of the soul-spirit. So, what is Buddhi ? In the Buddhi is our spiritual soul, the Walquiria, the Queen of Jinas, Guinevere, the one to whom Lancelot served wine in the goblets of Sucra and Manti. We can recall Dante when he talks about the two souls, the one that labours and the other that contemplates itself in the mirror... They are two souls, one male and the other female. Geburah is also known as the world of austerity, law and justice. Beyond this Sephirot we can encounter the seventh Sephirot, Gedulah, that is also called Chesed. Chesed is the Intimate World, the world of Atman, the Ineffable. The Testament of the Ancient Wisdom states: “Before the false dawn breaks upon the earth , those who survived the storms and torments worshipped Him and to them the Heralds of the Dawn appeared! The Intimate is Atman, the Ineffable, Chesed.
So we can state that these seven Sephirot are the Manifestation. Beyond these seven inferior Sephirot are the superior Sephirot. Binah, what is Binah ? Binah is the Holy Spirit within each one of us. The world of the Holy Ghost is formidable, marvellous, extraordinary. And even farther beyond the world of the Holy Ghost is the world of Chockmah, the world of Logos, of the Cosmic Christ. And farther yet is the world of Kether, the world of the Elder of the Days, our Father in secret. Each one of us possesses a Father who is secret and individual. There are as many Fathers in heaven as there are people on Earth and even more. It is obvious that no one will be able to see the Father, to talk to Him face to face without dying. Actually, the Ego has to perish first, not the body, but the Ego, so that you can have the benefit of seeing the Father and talking to Him face to face. Otherwise, it would not be possible. The Ego has to diminish at least 90% so that we may receive the blessing of a vision of the Father and of carrying on a personal conversation with Him. He is the Benevolence of the Benevolence, the Occult of the Occult and the Mercy of Mercies. This is the Tree of Life, the ten Sephirot of the Hebrew Kabala. The Son of Man is in the Sephirot Tipheret and this is the location of the Son of Man. If we examine the Tipheret, we can see it is the fifth Sephiroth, situated halfway between the upper and the lower Sephirot. The reason is that the Son of Man in the human soul has to express himself and has to gather the upper and lower Sephirot. Integrate them in Himself, to be transformed into Adam Kadmon , the Celestial Adam, the Solar Adam. When this process is completed we will be converted into terribly Divine Gods, way beyond Good and Evil. So it would not be possible to reach so tremendous heights without the Christ, who comes to manifest Himself in Tipheret. The Lord is a fundamental factor for the Great Work. He is the Interior Magnesium of Alchemy. So, as we progress in our knowledge and understanding of the Tree of Life we will also obtain the knowledge of who the Son of Man is as pictured in the Bible. But we will not be able to truly understand who the Son of the Man is if we do not study the Tree of Life in Zohar. The Son of Man is mentioned in the Holy Scriptures ( I do not recall the exact place ). Those who deny the Son of Man are Anti-Christ. It is clear that those who deny the Son of Man deny His manifestation as the Human Soul. The materialists are those who denies the human soul and deprives the human being of the possibility of the human soul. For instance, Karl Marx in his materialistic dialectics deprives the human being of eternal
values. So, the materialist who denies the human soul converts himself into the AntiChrist. The Anti-Christ of the false materialistic science inhabits the surface of the Earth nowadays. The atheist scientists, enemies of the Eternal God, are a hundred per cent Anti-Christ, because they deny the Son of Man. We meditate on all these issues, my dear brothers, so as to understand who is the Intimate Christ and Nativity ( Christmas) of the Heart. Buddha and Jesus or Buddha and Christ complement each other within us. I am going to tell you about an experience in which I saw myself inside a Buddhist temple in Japan. I was addressing the congregation about Christ. A certain unease spread among the monks because I was in the middle of a Buddhist monastery. In fact, the monks were addressing their master and relating to him about the man who was talking about Christ. I expected that monk to furiously strike me with his stick, but fortunately nothing occurred. He asked me “How can you talk about Christ here in a Buddhist temple ?” And I replied “Out of my deep respect for this congregation, allow me to say that Christ and Buddha complement each other.” Then I could astonishingly observe that the master had agreed and said in turn “So be it! Christ and Buddha complement each other.” This was stated before the monks. And soon he told me through a Koan, as to my understanding, that Christ and Buddha are two intimate factors which abodes in the interior of each person. He made them present a piece of string which he used to link his right thumb to his left thumb. I understood the Koan because I am used to the Dialectics of the Conscience. So what he truly wanted to say was that Christ and Buddha are linked within ourselves, they are two features of our own Being. And this can be precisely explained in the light of the Tree of Life. Buddha is composed of these two principles: Chesed and Geburah. In strict theosophical terms we would say Atman-Buddhi, this is the interior Buddha. And the Christ, we see Him here in Chockmah. So, Christ through Binah, that is sex, is connected to Buddha in Chesed and Geburah. Christ and Buddha are parts of our own Being. So the esoteric and religious future of the humanity of tomorrow will accomplish the best of the Christian esoterism and likewise the best of the Buddhist esoterism. The Christian
and Buddhist esoterism have to be integrated, fusionated, because Christ and Buddha are two parts of our own Being. The Buddha Gautama Sakyamuni truly came to teach us the doctrine of Chesed and Geburah, the doctrine of the Intimate, the doctrine of the Interior Buddha. Jeshua Ben Pandira came to teach us the doctrine of Christ, of Chockmah, who is Christ. He came to teach us the doctrine of the Human Soul, the doctrine of Tipheret and the doctrine of the Intimate Christ. Gautama brought us the doctrine of the Intimate Buddha and Jesus of Nazareth brought us the doctrine of the Intimate Christ. Each one of them brought us a message of our own Being. It is clear that Christ and Buddha complement each other and are within us. My dear brothers, as this knowledge is processed in our minds, it is worthwhile taking up its direction so as to receive the Venust Initiation, someday, the Initiation of Tipheret, the Christmas (Nativity) of the Heart.
