“Through me you pass into the city of woe: Through me you pass into eternal pain: Through me among the people lost for aye. Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd: To rear me was the task of power divine, Supremest wisdom, and primeval love. Before me things create were none, save things Eternal, and eternal I endure. All hope abandon ye who enter here.” - Dante Alighieri

Understand, our inferno is within our inferior psychological levels, namely, our unconsciousness, subconsciousness, and infraconsciousness, which belong to the circle of eternity or lower 5th dimension. This circle of eternity has a beginning and an end.


Master Samael Aun Weor states:

“If we attentively observe anything from this Mayavic world in which we live, such as a table, for instance, we discover with mystical astonishment three perfectly defined aspects, namely: length, width, and height.

However, it is evident that in the table used in our example, a specific and totally defined fourth factor exists. I am referring to the concept of time.

How much time has passed since that gleaming table was created by the humble carpenter? Only minutes? Maybe hours? Months? Years?

Length, width, and height are - without any possible doubt (even if these are of a Cartesian type) - the three Euclidean aspects of this three-dimensional world within which, for good or for bad, we live. It is evident that it would be absurd to exclude the fourth factor from our postulations.

Thus, considering time as the fourth dimension, it intrinsically contains two fundamental properties, namely: temporal and spatial.

It is positive, authentic, and undeniable that the chronometric aspect of life is exclusively the unstable surface of the spatial depth.

Many years before, prior to the time of the wise Einstein who surprised the world with his famous Theory of Relativity, any learned person conceived the factor of time as a straight line. However, in this day and age, any intellectual person accepts that such a factor is a curve. Nonetheless, it is also obvious that in this present century, people who think with a medieval mind still exist.

Great modern, intellectual people, utopians by nature, beautifully fantasize when thinking that eternity is also a straight line, time prolongated in an indefinite way.

Revolutionary Gnosticism dialectally teaches that eternity in itself has nothing to do with the concept of time.

The International Gnostic Movement emphatically affirms that a Fifth Dimension exists, known with the solemn name of Eternity.

In accordance with the wise Law of Recurrence, everything in life comes to occur again, just as it happened previously within the vicious circle of time.

Indeed, the times are eternally repeated. Yet, let not time be confused with eternity.

An incessant repetition of events and times exists within the Eternal Now of the great life.

The curve of time perfectly revolves within the perfect circle of eternity; yet, it is evident that these two wheels are different.

That which is beyond these two mysterious circles is the Sixth Dimension, and we must search for the living foundation of any Cosmogenesis within the unknowable Zero Region.

Considering that the wise Einstein already mathematically demonstrated the relativity of time, we can emphasise the idea that the fourth factor (time) of our three-dimensional world, within the Unmanifested Absolute, has no existence.

Before the flaming heart from this solar system of Ors, within which we live, move and have our Being, started to intensely palpitate after the Great Pralaya (Cosmic Night), time did not exist. It was lying asleep within the profound bosom of the Abstract Absolute Space.

If at the end of the Mahamanvantara (Cosmic Day), the seven basic dimensions of the universe remain reduced into a simple mathematical point, which is lost as a drop within the Great Ocean, then it is evident that time ceases to exist.

The worlds, as well as human beings, animals, and plants, are born, grow up, get old, and die. Everything that breathes under the sun has a defined period of time.

The unity of life of any living creature is equivalent, as a fact and by its own right, to every single palpitation of its heart.

Indeed, it has been wisely stated unto us that the whole starry heaven is a system of hearts that intensely palpitate.

It is evident that each palpitation from the worlds is performed every 27,000 years.

The complete life of any world, which sparkles and blazes within the profound bosom of the inalterable infinite, is equivalent to the complete amount of 2,700,000,000 palpitations from the cosmic heart.

The humble insect that only lives for an evening in summer, lives, indeed, as much as any human being or any world, just in a very accelerated way.

It is written with embers of ardent fire that the number of cardiac palpitations for beasts, human beings, and worlds is always the same; however, sometimes more fast or more slow.

Time is extremely relative. Thus, through the stage show of the world, many actors who carry their own chronometer are passing by.

Moreover, secret calculations and esoteric time also exist. This is known by any Adept."  - Cosmic Teachings of a Lama by Samael Aun Weor

In another book Master Samael Aun Weor states:

“In this world abound many people who apparently want the realization of their Self in order to have right to enter into the kingdom of esotericism, nevertheless, deep down, what those people want is to amuse themselves with these studies, and that is all. Those people are curious butterflies who flutter today in one school and tomorrow in another; they do not know the path, and if they manage to find it, they get very excited in the beginning, and thereafter, when they see that the work is serious, they flee frightened, looking for refuge in another school.

The line of life is spiral, thus in each reincarnation humanity is descending the spiral staircase until arriving at the infernal worlds of the mineral kingdom.

Time is ten times longer, ten times slower, and terribly boring in the inferno (mineral kingdom); a payment of our Karmic debt is made every one hundred years.

The descent into the infernal worlds is a backward journey, devolving in the time, backing down through the animal, vegetal, and mineral states. When arriving at the fossil state, the egos and its lunar bodies become cosmic dust.

The Soul is liberated when the ego and the lunar bodies become dust in the inferno. The Soul returns to the primeval chaos, ready to evolve again, rising over several eternities through the mineral, vegetal, and animal states, until again reaching the human state.

So, the souls who do not take advantage of the one hundred and eight lives represented by the one hundred and eight beads of the Buddha’s necklace are born within the infernal worlds located underneath the Earth and waters, which is the Hindu Naraka, the Babylonian Aralu, the Earth of No-return, the region of dense darkness, the house whose inhabitants do not see the light, the region where dust is their bread and their food mud. The inferno is the melting crucible, where the rigid forms, the lunar bodies and the ego, must be melted, reduced to dust, so that the Soul is liberated.

The time that the Soul has to live within the infernal worlds depends on its Karma. It is obvious that those terrible black magicians who developed the Kundabuffer organ and chakras of the lower abdomen, the Lucifers, Anagarikas, Ahrimans, etc., live entire eternities, complete Mahamanvantaras, within those infernal regions, before becoming cosmic dust.

Common and ordinary people, the everyday people, those who did not realize their Self because they were not interested in self-realization, but who were not decidedly perverse, only last within the infernal worlds about eight hundred to one thousand years.

Severe punishments are given to those who dishonored the Gods, the fallen Bodhisattvas, the Hasnamussen with double center of gravity, and for those parricidal and matricidal ones, and for the assassins and gentlemen of war and masters of black magic. The Tibetan Book of the Dead states:

“Falling therein, thou wilt have to endure unbearable misery, whence there is no certain time of getting out.”

Into the infernal worlds enter not only the decisively perverse, but also those who already lived their one hundred and eight lives and did not attain realization:

“Every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.” – Luke 3:9." - Light from Darkness by Samael Aun Weor 



Genesis states: 

“In the beginning Elohim-אלהים created the heaven (the nine sephiroth-ספירות) and the earth (Malkuth-מלכות, our physicality).  And (the Klipoth-קליפות of) the earth (Malkuth-מלכות, our physicality) was formless and void; and darkness, (VaChoshek-וחשך, that is, the unconsciousness, the subconsciousness, and the infraconsciousness) was upon the face of this abyss (the Klipoth-קליפות). And (nonetheless) the Spirit (the Ruach-רוח, Chesed-חסד, Abraham-אברהם) of Elohim-אלהים hovered upon the face of the (creative) waters. And Elohim-אלהים said, Let there be (in the 9th sphere of this abyss, the Klipoth-קליפות) Aur-אור-light: and there was Aur-אור-light (in the chakra Muladhara).” - Genesis 1:1-3

Today we are going to talk about the initiations of the minor mysteries.

Remember that last week we talked about the ordeals that the initiates always have to pass through, in order to enter into initiation. However, Master Samael Aun Weor also talked to us about the nine minor initiations, that must first be overcome, before we can earn entrance into the major initiations of fire.

Master Samael states that the nine minor initiations are related with certain tests, with the path in which the neophyte is tested in the nine degrees, in order to prove their worthiness for entrance into the major mysteries.

So, as you seem, there are nine minor initiations, and if we apply Kabbalah to this matter, we will see that these initiations are related to the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is our real being; certainly, these initiations represent the steps that the consciousness acquires in each one of the main parts of the being, in accordance with the Tree of Life.

If we recall that we are in the physical plane, then we do not take into account the physical body, the world of Malkuth-מלכות, when relating to these nine initiations, but to the Klipoth-קליפות, the shadow of Tree of Life. Remember that the ten sephiroth are the ten main parts of the being, because, in reality, the being has many parts.

The Master Samael tells us in The Pistis Sophia, that the Being has 49 parts, related with the 49 levels of the mind or of the consciousness. The synthesis of this is the Tree of Life, in which we see the ten sephiroth or ten spheres related to the different parts that we have to study and develop.


Starting from the bottom of the Tree of Life, we have Klipoth-קליפות, Hell, the shadow of Tree of Life, then Malkuth-מלכות, the physical body. Above this, we have Yesod-יסוד, which is the vital body. Then we have Hod-הוד, which is the astral body or body of emotion, and alongside Hod-הוד we find Netzach-נצח, which is the mind, the mental body. Above these two we find Tiphereth-תפארת, which is the human soul; when we study the Tree of Life, we discover that Tiphereth-תפארת is the third sephirah of the second triangle. The other two sephiroth of this second triangle are Geburah-גבורה, the spiritual soul, and Chesed-חסד, also called Gedulah-גדולה, which is Atman, the spirit, our innermost, our real being. Above this triangle, we find the first triangle of the Tree of Life, which is comprised of Binah-בינה (the Holy Spirit),  Chokmah-חכמה, which is the Christ, the Son, and finally Kether-כתר, the crown, the Father of all the Lights. These are the ten sephiroth-ספירות.

By analysing the nine initiations of the minor mysteries we arrive at the conclusion that there are nine steps that every neophyte has to achieve in order to understand the subconsciousness, the unconsciousness, the infraconsciousness, in order to achieve the self-realisation of the being. Obviously, it is clear that each of these nine initiations relate to the subconsciousness, the unconsciousness, the infraconsciousness, to the nine Klipoth-קליפות, Hell, the shadow of Tree of Life, underneath Malkuth-מלכות, the physical body.   

That is why it is said that there are five initiations of the major mysteries, but in reality, there are seven, because they are related with the development of the real human being, and the seven bodies of the human being. We tend not to take into account the sixth and seventh major initiations, because they are related to the Monad and the Monad is always standing and never falls, whereas the lower five sephiroth, namely, Malkuth-מלכות, Yesod-יסוד, Hod-הוד, Netzach-נצח, and Tiphereth-תפארת, which is the human soul; when we study the Tree of Life, we discover that Tiphereth-תפארת is the third sephirah of the second triangle, must be uplifted, refined and perfected.

That is why the Master Samael always talks about the fire, which is the part of the initiation that we have to acquire in order to reach the level of human being.

Regardless, before entering into those initiations, we have to study.

When we say study, we know that before entering into the minor mysteries, we first have to be on the probationary path, in the subconsciousness, the unconsciousness, the infraconsciousness, which is where the neophyte is tested. Obviously, these tests are to see whether the neophyte is really learning, really putting the teachings into practice; these are not intellectual tests, because every initiation is related to the Soul-Ruach-רוח, who is Chesed-חסד.

This is something we have to comprehend and understand: not a single initiation is received by the ego, nor by the physical personality. Indeed, initiations are always received by the soul, by the consciousness, or better said, by the monad, Chesed-חסד, our inner being. That is why the Master Samael said that people who proclaim themselves to have this or that initiation are liars, because the physical personality, the ego, the lower self here in this physical plane never receives any initiation. The one that receives it is the monad, the innermost, who in our present state is not found in the body, because we have the ego instead of it, and the ego and spirit do not mix.

We are tested in the physical plane because the essence, the consciousness, the soul, the Buddhatā, which is incarnated and is disgracefully bottled up within the ego, which is the subconsciousness, the unconsciousness, the infraconsciousness, inside Malkuth-מלכות, the physical body.

“Now from tradition we are informed that the word 'behibaram-בהבראם' (when they were created) should be read, 'behe baram' (by or through Abraham). It may be objected, how can it be said the heavens and the earth were created by Abraham, who corresponds to the Sephirah Chesed-חסד (mercy) on the Tree of Life, since we know also from tradition that the word ''behibaram-בהבראם' signifies (rather, by the Hei-ה of Abraham ‘behibrama-בהברםא') that the heavens and the earth were created by the Schekinah, of which the letter Hei-ה is the symbol? Our reply is that these two traditions are not really contradictory to each other but refer and amount to the same thing." - Zohar

The initiate is always the innermost (the Ruach-רוח, Chesed-חסד, Abraham-אברהם), the monad. When this initiate is working and is entering into initiation, his lower part, which is (Tiphereth-תפארת as essence of human soul), normally is bottled up in the ego, has to overcome different witnesses, different sins, has to overcome all of that, in order to acquire Aur-אור-light. That is why the main thing for the initiation is chastity.

No one can acquire any initiation without chastity. Of course, here we are talking about initiations of the White Lodge, because the black initiations, which are received by many neophytes in the black lodge, are initiations related with the ego, never with the soul or with the innermost (the Ruach-רוח, Chesed-חסד, Abraham-אברהם). Here, we are dealing with white initiations, because we want to achieve the self-realisation of our inner being. 

These white initiations, whether they are minor or major, are always related to the being, to the soul, Ruach-רוח, Chesed-חסד, Abraham-אברהם, never to the ego, never to the personality. This is something that we have to understand, in order to not fall into the mistake of attributing these initiations to the terrestrial personality, or the ego, of anyone. If we were to refer to the initiations of another, it should be in reference to the innermost being of that individual; understand, the Ruach-רוח, Chesed-חסד, Abraham-אברהם, is the son of Iod-Havah Elohim-יהוה אלהים.

"To introduce the virile member into the feminine vagina and to withdraw it without spilling the semen is the old formula of ancient alchemists... This is the formula to awaken the igneous serpent (or "Nahash Nahashoth-נחש נחשת, Brazen serpent that heal the Israelites in the wilderness" - Numbers 21:9) and to achieve union with the Innermost. 

According to Moses, the Innermost is the Real Being, the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים, who sowed the waters in the beginning of the world." The Revolution of Beelzebub by Samael Aun Weor

That is the right way of talking, because here in the physical plane we are just sinners, people with a lot of ego and that ego is the one that has to be disintegrated. That personality has to die in order for the being to resurrect in the Soul-Ruach-רוח.

Of course, then we have the concept that before entering into the major initiations, in order to work with the fire in each of the spheres of the Tree of Life, the neophyte has to learn, to understand the path, and has to comprehend what to do in each of the Sephiroth-ספרות, spheres, so that the consciousness can receive knowledge, instruction and wisdom in the internal planes, in the temples of the White Lodge.

When the soul is learning all the different steps in order to acquire such and such initiation, it is always tested in the physical plane and in the internal planes.

Remember that the soul, the essence, the Buddhatā, that which is bottled up within the ego has to learn, has to be in chastity. So, that neophyte, that Buddhatā has to overcome the ego that is united to it, and that is why in the physical plane there are many sacred books that guide the neophyte, in order for them to learn what to do in order to earn their right of entering the door of HaShamayim- השמים, the heavens, which is Yesod-יסוד, sex, the 9th sphere.

All the sacred books of the holy religions teach the neophytes this probationary path, but in this day and age, we refer mainly to the books of the master Samael Aun Weor. Why these books in particular? It is because the books of the master Samael are extraordinarily synthetic in nature; they unveil and explain the mysteries of all of the sacred books of the great religions, such as the Bhagavad Gita, the Bible, the Quran, and all of the books that were written by the masters, the Avatars of ancient times, that were written in order to aid those souls who want to enter into initiation.

In ancient times, in order for anyone to be worthy of receiving the great tool of Sahaja Maithuna, which is Yesod-יסוד, sex, the 9th sphere, the neophyte had to be in chastity. Of course, such neophytes were in celibacy, that is to say, cognisant celibacy, which is when one performs the transmutation of the sexual force as a single person, through pranayama. In ancient times, only those who knew how to sublimate the sexual energy as a single person could eventually earn the right of receiving the secret of the Great Arcanum. Abstention from sex is not enough, we need to know how to sublimate the sexual force.

There are many people in this time that are in sexual abstinence, but they do not work with the energy, they are just avoiding the sexual act, and as the master Samael Aun Weor states, the result of this is that they experience nocturnal pollutions.

So, why is it necessary to go through the initiations of the minor mysteries? Well, we have to understand and comprehend each one of the nine parts of the being above the physical body. In relation to this, let us investigate the teachings of Moses.

"In the day that Elohim-אלהים created Adam, in the likeness of Elohim-אלהים made he him; Male and Female created he them, and blessed them and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created."  -Genesis 5:1-2

(So, Adam), The Lemurians were male-female (hermaphrodites), as the Bible states:

Therefore, it is stated that within a determined period the egg within the womb of the hermaphroditic Lemurian (Adam) body was open and a child was born from it.  This child was then nourished from the breasts of the father-mother.

When we state that the Lemurians were hermaphrodites, it invites us to explore the modern physical body.  Certainly, the nipples on the male body are nothing but atrophied mammary glands, and the clitoris on the female body is an atrophied (Iod-י or) masculine phallus that has withdrawn with nervous ligaments.  So in the human organism we have the evidence that in the past, the human body was hermaphroditic." - The End of Kali Yuga by Samael Aun Weor


We have three Iods (Iodaim-ידיים), that is, two hands and one Iod-י in Yesod-יסוד, sex.

Moses left us the ten commandments. As we know, the ten commandments relate to the ten sephiroth-ספירות. Whosoever understands the ten commandments consciously, that one possesses in his consciousness the tools necessary to work concretely with the major initiations. 

We have to state as well that the nine minor initiations are related with the comprehension and development of the soul in the ten commandments, to a certain percentage.

In the beginning, as explained in other lectures, the initiate is always trying to overcome difficulties in the physical plane; they are learning to apply all of the forces, all of the strength that we have in order to enter into the internal planes and in order to understand the path of the self-realisation of the being, to understand the ten commandments.

What are those commandments?

Among them let us begin with Iod-י, the 10th letter that relates to the Schekinah-שכינה, the mother, of which the 5th letter Hei-ה of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei-יהוה, is the symbol. Moreover, Iod-י is the 10th letter, that corresponds to the 10th sephirah-ספירה, which is Malkuth-מלכות, our physicality.

The sephirah-ספירה Malkuth-מלכות receives from the heavens above through Yesod-יסוד, sex, the third Iod-י.

Malkuth-מלכות is related with the 10th commandment that says:


Tenth Commandment 

And thou shall not covet the goods of thy neighbour, neither covet thy neighbor`s house, his field, or his man-servant, or his maid-servant, his ox, or his ass, or anything that is thy neighbor`s.

In order to not covet the goods of any neighbour, it is necessary that we possess no envy, to anyone; we must build discrimination.

Discrimination is a virtue when consciously applied to the ego. This discrimination needs to be thorough, complete and honest; we must not allow ourselves to be tolerant of a single psychological aggregate; we have to learn to discriminate, to discern all of them.

Our consciousness is trapped in those aggregates, and so long as any part of our consciousness remains trapped in ego, we will experience suffering. Thus, they deserve death.

That discrimination has to be working here and now, always, so that eventually we can overcome our defects, like our envy, so that we no longer break that law, the commandment which Moses brought.

When we are not coveting things, when we discriminate our own egos, and we understand that we have to enter into the spiritual world, then we are awakening as children. Then we feel the urgency of entering into the internal planes, or as the Gospels tell us:

“Verily I say unto you, unless ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” - Matthew 18:3

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God (El-אל, Chesed-חסד) and Mammon-ממון (money).” - Matthew 6:24

We cannot serve God (El-אל, Chesed-חסד) and Mammon-ממון (money); if you are going to work with the self-realisation of the being, you have to work to apply all of you strength, all of your mind and all of your force to that.

As you know, in this physical plane there are many souls that are looking for that path that is already known to us. As it is written in the Gospels:

The Seminal Pearl

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” - Matthew 13: 45-46

That is, when he found the secret path, that path was allegorized as a beautiful pearl, which of course was very expensive. Obviously, this man was in love with that pearl. So, in order to acquire that pearl, he went and sold his house, all of his goods; everything that he owned. He collected the money and bought the pearl.

The Master Jesus said that the path to the kingdom of heaven is similar to the devotion of this person who performed that action, for that pearl is the soul, the essence that we have to develop.

In this physical plane, you have to do anything possible in order to acquire that. You have to be willing to sacrifice everything in order to devote yourself to the path; in other words, we have to be free, we have to release all of those attachments that we have developed. We have to learn how to leave behind that which is contrary to divinity, and to the path, with the four ordeals of the four elements, little by little.

In the beginning is the ordeal of earth. We have to study the path, and walk it and build an inventory of our life to overcome it, in order to finally enter into it. When we decide to enter, then we are learning, not that we are accomplishing the ten commandments, but we are at least learning them.

We shall not covet the neighbor’s goods.

In other words, we have to build our own goods, with our own effort without coveting anything in this physical plane, nor in the internal planes.

First, you have to learn to not covet material things, then, to not covet spiritual things. You have to work for the sake of the work, because you love the work.

Then, when the neophyte is properly prepared, they enter into the path, face the ordeal of the guardian of the threshold, and then into the minor initiations of which there are nine.

First Commandment.                                               kether 1

The first is, kabbalistically speaking, related to the Iod-י of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei-יהוה, the Father, symbolized by Kether-כתר, the first sephirah-ספירה:

Thou shalt love thy own Elohim-אלהים over everything.

Remember that we have the erroneous belief that there is only one Elohim-אלהים in Heaven, and we are here on earth: we are wrong. Understand, Elohim-אלהים and El-אל, Chesed-חסד, the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים, is within each one of us, as in ourselves likewise in our neighbour; this is indispensable.

Moses states:

“Hear, O Israel, Iod-Havah Elohim-יהוה אלהים (Binah-בינה), Iod-Havah-יהוה is one!  
You shall love Ath-Iod-Havah-את-יהוה your Elohim-אלהים with all your heart, (that is) with all your (animal) soul (Nephesh-נפש), and with all your (sexual) strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the path, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” - Deuteronomy 6:4-7

A lawyer, asked Jesus a question, tempting him, and say:

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” - Matthew 22:37-40

Of course, “You shall love Ath-Iod-Havah-את-יהוה your Elohim-אלהים with all your heart, (that is) with all your (animal and human) soul (Nephesh-נפש, desire in the heart, and Neshamah-נשמה, in the pineal gland), and with all your (sexual) strength,” is alike to “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.”

This Trinity relates with the three brains: the mind, the heart and the sex.

“With all your strength.” What is strength? The essence of strength comes from the sexual strength.

“With all your mind” What mind? Your intellectual brain, controlled by Neshamah-נשמה in the pineal gland.

“With all your heart.” This is your soul (Nephesh-נפש). Your soul (Nephesh-נפש) expresses itself through your heart, love or desire.

This implies that we have to know how to meditate, how to annihilate the ego which is within each one of us. In other words, if we are fornicating how are we going to receive the first initiation?

Master Samael Aun Weor said that any single person, as in not married, can achieve the first initiation of minor mysteries. A married person will acquire the initiation very fast if they are transmuting, because the foundation of any initiation is the transmutation of the sexual energy; this is how the ancient initiates knew it, when they were entering into the temples.

In the beginning there were neophytes in celibacy, they were learning, working, meditating, to repeat: job, labour, soul. This is not to say they would acquire 100% of the accomplishment of the first commandment, remember that we do not make any image of God because that is only for one, the monad in each one of us, which has no form.

When we analyse the commandment: “do not engrave any image of God,” the uninitiated or uninstructed think this is referring to the statues of different religions, or creating an idol of an invisible God in the clouds… Understand that images are related with the mind; the being, the monad,  is without form. Thus, we should not create forms in our mind for our own being.

It can be difficult for a neophyte to follow the command of the being, usually they follow the command of the ego.

All of us have thoughts of differing quality, and origin. For instance: perhaps a thought suddenly pops into our mind, “ I would like to eat a sandwich.” So, we eat a sandwich. We must arrive at the conclusion that our Being is not hungry for that sandwich, so who is the one that is hungry for that sandwich? And, who put the thought into our mind? It might be an ego of gluttony. The hunger comes into the body, and if we are cognisant, we are going to give to that body that which is necessary. Unfortunately, usually we give it what the ego likes… When we allow our ego to dictate what we eat, we tend to feed our bodies garbage. Who is it within you that enjoys eating garbage? Not the being. It is the ego. We have gluttony, and that is something we must overcome.

So, we have gluttony within, but we also have other images inside that tell us, tempt us, lure us to do many things while we are here, in our physical personality. Thus, to believe that any single person is fulfilling this commandment to its totality, just because they are not worshipping physical idols, is absurd.

To find a person who is accomplishing the first commandment, is very difficult. In order to begin to do such, we have to learn about the mind, the heart and the sex and how to perform the will of our Inner God, not any image. What we need, is to learn to discern between the being, and that which is not the being.

Christianity synthesises that commandment when saying:

You shall love your own God over everything.

This is love with cognizance.

The love that Moses talks about is not the egotistical love we feel in the sex or in the heart, it is that love that we have to develop, love related to the consciousness, related with the Soul-Neshamah-נשמה, and that commandment is accomplished when the Soul-Neshamah-נשמה is in activity in the pineal gland.

Once, a question was asked to the Master Samael Aun Weor related to the egos: “Master can you tell us something about the gnostic ego?”

He answered: “Well that question is uttered in Greek... it is very difficult, as everyone develops the gnostic ego, because in order to not develop that ego you have to be cognisant always of the knowledge.”

Usually, when we receive this knowledge and we are asleep, we are unconscious. Very seldom do we remember our being or remember God. Only she or he who remembers their own God from second to second, from instant to instant, from moment to moment accomplishes that commandment, loving God above everything with conscious love.

Usually, instead of acting with and being present in the consciousness, we are acting in the ego; usually people are feeling that egotistical emotional love in the heart. If you are with your spouse, kissing your spouse, loving your spouse, always do it remembering your being, with conscious love, otherwise you are just doing it with the ego, developing and strengthening an ego attachment.

It is that ego that usually feels pain when that beloved leaves us or is doing something against us.

Everybody has a different level because the different characters of people are related with the ego; usually, people are identified with this star sign which they belong to, or if you are this sign and your station is in that one and your moon is in this one and we are then compatible, but they forget that we are ego. What we have to do is try to overcome the characters and become the light in the consciousness, the soul, the spirit, and for that we have to work.

Second Commandment.                                         chokma

The second commandment is related with the second initiation of the minor mysteries, and the understanding of the word of God, the Logos, in different levels. Every initiate is always developing that type of knowledge, in different levels.

God has a name in each one of us. The consciousness always knows that name, but it is very seldom the mind knows that name in this physical plane. The Master knew his name before reaching any initiation and as many other persons did. And, let me remind you, Paramahansa Yogananda was a great initiate, an awakened being, an awakened soul. He had no solar bodies, he only achieved the minor initiations, but at a very high level by awakening the consciousness and eliminating the ego to the degree he could as a single person, not practicing alchemy.

Many initiates who reach that initiation reject the entrance into the major mysteries because sometimes they need instruction, they need information. Any neophyte that works hard with the consciousness and follows the commandments, I repeat, with an awakened consciousness, receives the name of God, not only related with our own particular individual sacred name, but a sacred mantra. Mantras are related with the many languages and are that which we apply in order to help ourselves, in order to help other people. That is why it is written:

Thou shalt not take the name of Iod-Havah-יהוה thy Elohim-אלהים in vain: for Iod-Havah-יהוה will not hold him/her guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Christ, Chokmah, the second sephirah of the Tree of Life, is that energy that dwells within everything. Anyone that applies this type of knowledge in a selfish way, is someone that needs to understand the name of God.

In the beginning of the Gnostic movement, in 1950, the Master Samael was telling his students the name of their own being, physically, and thus they were knowing their names. But, later on he realised that he was doing something wrong because each one of us has to gain that, to earn that.

In my case for instance, I knew the name of my being with effort. Many times, when I was in Mexico with the Master, I would ask, “What is the name of my being,” and he never told me.

He told me: “You will know the name of your being when you will receive your initiations.”

I give thanks that he did not tell me, because now I really appreciate that.

Related with other forces, mantras, the word always create, because:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of human beings. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not.” - John 1:1-5

To pronounce sacred mantras and prayers, you must always do it consciously. We need to learn to not to play with sacred things, to not make business or a mockery with holy things. The sacred word of God is written in the Bible, in all the sacred books, yet people make business with it; they are always selling the Lord.

We sell the Lord in many ways, therefore the accomplishment of the second commandment lies only in meditation. Anything that we are going to perform or do that relates to any sacred activity, we should analyse. When pronouncing or vocalising mantras we have to perform it consciously, not mechanically otherwise we are doing something wrong to our consciousness.

In many lectures, I have have pronounced the sacred name of God in Kabbalah: the tetragrammaton Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei-יהוה, which is holy and unpronounceable, but always we pronounce it when we are teaching because the strength of God comes from those words. Those sacred words are related with Iod-Havah Elohim-יהוה אלהים (Binah-בינה), so the strength comes.

There is an ancient and sacred mantra: TUM. This mantra should not be pronounced in vain.

“Tum is a terribly divine mantra and must never be pronounced in vain or played with because our Father who is in secret descends immediately from wherever He might be.” - Samael Aun Weor

We do not pronounce the name of God with the sacred words when they are not related with the doctrine, even though when we are talking we have to be careful with our words because remember that when we are in chastity our throat is strong and has power.

People in chastity should not condemn or criticise or send any damnation against anyone, because the word is strong and has power in the one that transmutes the sexual energy. When we transmute, that energy feeds the throat with strength, and gives to it power. When you use your words in the wrong way that person is punished and has to learn that Christ the word is something holy.

In ancient times they were many claiming to know about the sacred word of God, and they never pronounced the word of God because they believed that the word, kabbalistically speaking was holy. Meanwhile, I saw those same people slandering others who, according to them, were inferior or were not of their religion….

Third Commandment                                               binah 1

What is the third commandment?

Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as Iod-Havah-יהוה thy Elohim-אלהים hath commanded thee.

The seventh day should be made holy because Shabbath, is related with Shabbatai-שבתאי, Saturn, the Holy Spirit, Iod-Havah Elohim-יהוה אלהים (Binah-בינה), the third sephirah.

In Christianity, we say we shall keep festivities holy. Festivities are what we are receive in the internal planes when we are transforming ourselves, when we are annihilating the ego, when we are receiving initiations. To keep the Sabbath-שבת holy for seven days is related with death, because Sabbath-שבת, Shabbatai-שבתאי, Saturn is the lord of death. It is related with the holiness, the sanctity that we have to acquire by annihilating the ego.

To keep that Sabbath-שבת holy means to not do what Lot’s wife did when they were leaving Sodom and Gomorrah, which the Lord was going to destroy, when the wife of Lot turned and was transformed into a pillar of salt. This represents somebody who is working ahead, on the path, and then suddenly turns back. Such people are turned to salt in klipoth, hell, always.

In the Gospels 2Peter said:

“But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” 2Peter 2:22

When you vomit you are expelling bad things from within you. There are people who, after receiving the knowledge, they then go and eat that vomit again; they return to the vomit, they do not keep the Sabbath-שבת holy. Or, as in other religions, they sin all week because come Saturday or Sunday they are going to confess their sins before the priest, and they are always forgiven. Then, the next week they do the same thing again, because at the weekend they are going to be forgiven. That is of course not accomplishing the holy Sabbath-שבת.

If we annihilate an ego, we should always be conscious of that in order not to return to it and to keep the Sabbath-שבת holy, and to continue ahead on the path of the self-realisation of the being.

To be in a vicious circle of meditating on one ego, annihilating that ego and then returning back to it again and again…. obviously we will not progress on the path that way. That is an obstacle and is why many gnostics are not having experiences or advancing. This is allegorized in mythology as with Sisyphus the Colossus, who carried the stone upon his back up the hill, and upon reaching the summit, the stone would roll back down to the bottom, causing the cycle to repeat itself, again and again.

The same thing relates to the gnostics that are trying to sublimate: they transmute the energy yet later, be it a month or a year, they spill their sexual energy, either through the action of willingly fornicating or because accidents do happen when working with chastity, such as in the case of wet dreams. However, if done consciously, when knowing it could be avoided then you are not accomplishing the third commandment. So then, how are you going to enter into the major mysteries if you are playing with yourselves?

You cannot call the Sabbath-שבת holy if you are doing that, because Iod-Havah Elohim-יהוה אלהים, Binah-בינה, the Holy Spirit is the one that works with these forces, with the sexual energy.

When you sin - that is, when you have wet dreams - continue with your pranayama: breathe deeply, alternating between each nostril. 

Then, when you reach a certain level, meditate on that defect in order to annihilate it and the vices related with that defect (lust in this case) which are keeping you stagnant and unable to move forward.

So, people are lazy. They do not meditate. Therefore, they do not have truth; they are always just at the same level, they fell and have to start again like Sisyphus. So, to keep the Sabbath-שבת holy is to always walk ahead.

If you are stagnant then you have to meditate to find that particular ego that is making you stagnant, in order to keep ahead, because we need to pass the initiations, not only in the nine minor mysteries but also in life, in order to overcome that, to always keep the Sabbath-שבת holy, to work with Shabbatai-שבתאי, Saturn, with death, annihilating our “I’s.”

We have to learn to love death with all our heart because Sabbath-שבת, Shabbatai-שבתאי, Saturn, the Holy Spirit is the one that works with the process of death; we annihilate the ego with the processes, the help of the Divine Mother Kundalini, which itself is the Holy Spirit. Mother Death destroys the ego in order to keep the Sabbath-שבת holy.

So, to keep the Sabbath-שבת holy is to annihilate the ego, and to not return to that path like the wife of Lot. but to always keep ahead, ahead and ahead, dying always, that is how we sublimate ourselves. We should always transmute. If we meditate on one ego today, we are not done, tomorrow there will be another one, or maybe a similar aggregate of that particular ego, another big one. In this way, we keep the initiation that we gain on the path holy, with the festivities of the Sabbath-שבת, the seventh day which is Saturday.

That is why some religions say that Saturday is the day to confess your sins because it is the day of death. In this tradition we recommend this too, but not only on Saturday, because to work with Saturday is to work with death every single day of your life. In this process you have to confess your sins to your inner individual particular Father, to your inner individual particular priest that are within. Thereafter you pray: Our Father, who art in Heaven etc. Also the Ave Maria, because she is the one which disintegrates the ego. We say a prayer to our Divine Mother:

Hail Ram-IO, full of grace,

Our Lord is with Thee!
Blessed art thou, amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Yeshua.
Virgin Ram-IO, Mother of God,
pray for us with the sinning ego,
now and at the hour of the death
of our vices. Amen.

Fourth Commandment                                          chesed 1

The Duad explain the fourth commandment:

Honour thy Ath-Father-את־אבי and thy Ath-Mother-ואת־אמ (in Daath-דעת), as Iod-Havah-יהוה thy Elohim-אלהים hath commanded thee; that thy (initiatic alchemical) days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the ground (HaAdamah-האדמה) which Iod-Havah-יהוה thy Elohim-אלהים giveth thee.

To honour your Father and Mother on earth as it is in heaven is to honour your fluids, namely, your cerebral-spinal fluids of the father, and your genital fluids of the mother of your monad, who seats in the central nervous system.

Here, reaching the fourth commandment, let us observe the wisdom of Moses because Elohim- אלהים is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are related with the first three commandments, but the fourth is related with Chesed-חסד, the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים.

People believe that this fourth commandment is related with our terrestrial parents, who we should obviously honour. But, when we talk about Kabbalah, and the commandments of Moses, you have to understand that this fourth commandment is related to our own particular Osiris and Isis that we have within, our own particular Jehovah, which is Iod the Father and Chavah (Eve) the Mother, the celestial heavenly couple.

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is the monad, the super-individuality or Holy Trinity, within each one of us. From that super-individuality emerges the Divine Duad. In other words, the Duad, Iod-Havah-יהוה and Ath-את, the Schekinah-שכינה, the Divine Mother, your Elohim-אלהים, emerges from the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, the super-individuality, or Holy Trinity. The Duad is the force of the Holy Spirit in each one of us.

The Divine Mother is the wife of the Holy Spirit and within her the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit also dwell. She is wisdom, power and love, together. Wisdom is the Father, love is the Son and power is the Holy Spirit, the three powers of these three factors are always dwelling within her.

The Divine Mother always carries in her hand a lamp and that lamp is the Innermost, Chesed-חסד, the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים, which is a fire always burning within the Soul-Neshamah-נשמה in the pineal gland. The Innermost is Chesed-חסד, also called Gedulah-גדולה, the fourth sephirah of the Tree of Life. The Innermost is the real, unique individual Son which is neither male or female but both; the Innermost is androgynous.

Andra-Άντρας is man in Greek and Gyneka-Γυναίκα is woman in Greek. Thus, that which is androgynous is that which is man-woman, male-female. The Innermost is androgynous, who is the fourth aspect on the Tree of Life, the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים is a son or a child of the Divine Mother. 

She and He are Ath-Iod-Havah-את-יהוה, your Elohim-אלהים. They are the Duad in Daath-דעת. Ath-את, the Schekinah-שכינה, is a sunderable part of the three forces; they form a Duad in Daath-דעת. It is from this Duad, Iod-Havah-יהוה and Ath-את, the Schekinah-שכינה, your Elohim-אלהים, that the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים, Chesed-חסד, emerges.

The Monad is Osiris-Ra, the Holy Trinity; and the Duad is Osiris-Isis in Daath-דעת. So, Osiris is the Father and Isis is the Mother in Daath-דעת. So, to honour Father and Mother is to remember the Innermost and to understand that the Innermost, who is Horus in Egyptian symbology, is always the child of Osiris, Isis in Daath-דעת, that is, the Hebrew Ath-Iod-Havah-את-יהוה Elohim-אלהים.

The Eye of Horus is the clairvoyant eye, which is dead in each one of us because we have the ego alive within.

To honour Father and Mother is to understand the duality. How are we going to honour God, Father and Mother, if we think that God is male? Many religions think that God is some divine male figure, who exists external to us somewhere. Well, to believe that is to be half atheist because God is also female, and we must love and worship that feminine aspect of our own inner divinity, which is our Divine Mother Kundalini.

We have to honour our parents, Father and Mother. We want the self-realisation of our Father, but our Father without our Divine Mother cannot achieve anything.

We, as Innermost, are children of Iod-Havah-יהוה, the Holy Spirit and Ath-את, the Schekinah-שכינה, our Divine Mother; that is why we have to remember the Innermost. The Master Samael used to tell us that we have to remember ourselves, but in reality, the Self is the real being, is the Innermost, the spirit, it is who we really are. To remember ourselves is to remember God, the Innermost, who is the child of the Divine Mother.

People think that to remember ourselves is to remember the ego, and they make efforts in observing themselves. Indeed, to observe ourselves is indispensable; to remember God while observing the heart, the mind, and sex is fundamental because that is where the ego is always acting. Thus, we need to remain vigilant in observing ourselves, in order for us to know what we truly have in our mind, in order to overcome that. However, to remember God, to remember our Self is to not forget the being, the Innermost which is always there united with the soul which is disgracefully bottled up within the ego.

To always be attentive to the Innermost and to feel that we are part of it is fundamental. This is not an effort to remember once a week, once a month or once a day. No, it is a once a second effort, from moment to moment. We must remember our God, love our God, and then observe the ego; these are concurrent efforts.

To observe is not to remember, you have to remember and then to observe, if you observe without remembering you are then just doing something mechanically not consciously, so many gnostics, many neophytes observe themselves all day long but they do not remember them Selves because that Self that we are referring, in this case, is the real Self, the being, the Innermost, God.

As said in previous lectures relating to the first commandment, a certain ruler asked Jesus:

“And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” - Luke 18-25

Jesus also said, all commandments are synthesised in one: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” - Matthew 22:37

That applies to the consciousness, to be the enemy of the ego.

So, if you are not acting from your own ego and are conscious of your own being, you are self-realising the being, loving your God with all of your strength, with all your heart, with all your mind. Then, the second commandment is similar to the first one: love thy neighbour as thyself.

Thyself is God within, because when you are loving God that is the real Self. To love thy neighbour is to find the God of the neighbour, as you are finding your own God within you and to love the God of they neighbour as you are loving your own God through the works. But how are you going to respect the Being of your neighbour if you do not know your own God, if you are not performing the love to your own God? If you are not accomplishing the fourth commandment of honouring your Father and your Mother, how then can you honour the Father and the Mother of your neighbour?

Here we find the synthesis of monotheism, which is when you are accomplishing the first commandment: you shall love your God with all your strength, with all your mind and with all your heart etc.

Then, we find the foundation of polytheism: love thy neighbour as thyself. The neighbour is many, and within each one of them is their own God that you have to love and respect in your neighbours.

So, that is what the Master Samael tells us about the monistic-polytheism. The one that honours and respects the Gods, he who wishes to become God, is that one who accomplishes these commandments: to honour Father and Mother, of one and all.

Fifth Commandment                                             gebevura

The fifth commandment is related with Geburah-גבורה and the utilization of your willpower consciously:

Thou shalt not kill.

On the Tree of Life, Geburah-גבורה represents strength. It is also called Pechad-פחד: which means “fear.”

You shall not kill, in its most basic, fundamental meaning begins with yourself, and the rest of the beings which have life in this universe.

Now, what is the first thing you have within yourself, which is very small and yet has life? It is the sperm in the man and the ovum in the woman; it is the sexual energy, that is the first life that you have. When the sexual energy is spilled through the orgasm of the beasts, that is, when you fornicate you are killing that life that is within you, with your actions.

You can also kill not only physically, but emotionally, mentally, in many ways. You can kill also the longing for the self-realisation of another with your actions, if you do not give a good example with your life. It is often difficult, but you should try always to set a good example in your own life in order to not kill religious principles, that is, Kaphar-כפר: which means "to deny religious principles."


This is why Pechad-פחד is written on left thigh and Kaphar-כפר on the right thigh of the esoteric pentagram. Between the thighs is the reed or caduceus of mercury, symbol of the spinal column.

"And he hath on his vesture and on his thighs a name written, King of Kings (Melek-מלך Melakim-מלכים in Tiphereth-תפארת, Kaphar-כפר), and Lord of Lords (Adon-אדון, Adonim-אדונים in Malkuth-מלכות, Pechad-פחד)." Revelation 19:16 

"Make yourself an ark of Gopher-Reeds-גפר-קנים; and make atonements (Kapharat-כפרת) at home, and cover them inside and out with cypress (Kaphar-כפר)." - Genesis 6:14

Remember that life expresses itself in many dimensions, not only in the physical plane. People may not kill physically, but they can kill emotionally or psychologically, in many ways. For instance, perhaps for many years you have felt love for someone, and suddenly they come and stab you in your back many times… they are killing your love.

There could be a couple who are very happy together, then suddenly one starts behaving in the wrong way and little by little killing the love that once was in the beginning fades. Then Cupid is dead, and that individual does not feel anything for his or for her partner, because that love is completely damaged. Who killed it? We did with our actions. That love can be killed. So, we should always keep Cupid alive by transmuting, by annihilating selfishness, attachments in the heart and by comprehending self-importance, self-esteem and all those negative psychological elements within that are always against love and that are very strong in each one of us.

In order not to kill, no karma must be established in relation to the fifth commandment; the number five is related with karma in Klipoth-קליפות.

Remember, we must also kill the ego. Krishna was talking with Arjuna on the battlefield, telling him that he was to kill his family, and he could not bring himself to kill them... but that family was of course a symbol of his ego, the ego that each of us has to meet on the battlefield. What is the sixth commandment? It is:

Thou shalt not fornicate-תנאף, this is related with sex, the third Iod-י, Yesod-יסוד:                                             tiphereth 1

Thou shalt not fornicate.

Remember that we said that all of the commandments are synthesised in one: you shall love your God with all your strength, with all your mind and with all your heart or soul. Here we find the sixth commandment is related to the number six because it is when the initiate is between two paths.

Some initiates that are single do not pass the sixth initiation because they are caught between the two paths; it is difficult to find a couple working in the path.

Upon the sixth Arcanum, we find the initiate between two paths, between two women. To left of the initiate is where the soul finds a whore and to the right of the soul is a female initiate, a great master or an adept. Yet, the soul is always looking to the left because usually the soul is following the path of the left side, which is the whore whose name is six hundred and sixty six.

Understand that this soul in the middle is any one of us; if you are female you can still follow the path of the whore which is the world, humanity, Herodias the adulterer.

In order for us to face the right way, the right direction, the right hand path, we have to always be in love with God, like Mohammed. If the initiate is male let him be in love with his Divine Mother Kundalini, if the initiate is female let her be in love with her inner knight, the inner being, the Father. In this case. the Father is the Spiritual soul, the Knight, when the initiate is female; when the initiate is male, the spiritual soul is Guinevere, the Queen of the Jinn night. The female initiate has to be in love with the spiritual soul which is the knight, Lancelot. The King is the King, long live the King which is Arthur, the Innermost.

In order to not fornicate you have to transmute the sexual energy in the forty nine levels of the being, in complete chastity, not only physically.

You can accomplish chastity in the physical plane easily after many years of struggle, but in the forty nine levels of the being it is more difficult. Only by entering the direct path is it possible. Many initiates that enter into the spiral path do not obtain chastity in one hundred percent of their psyche because the ego is strong inside of them. To accomplish the ten commandments inside implies to take the direct path and not the spiral path and for that you have to die completely in your lust.

Seventh Commandment                                          netzach1

What is the seventh commandment?

Thou shalt not steal.

This commandment is related with Netzach, with the mind. Remember the mind is always a thief, stealing things that do not belong to it. Sometimes, when we are full of pride and full of vanity, it is because we are thieves, pretending or believing ourselves to be some one that we are not.

When we say for instance with foolish pride, “I am a great initiate, because I am in this for many years and have performed many things.” Well, the initiate is the Being and the one that is talking is the mind, that is why the mind is related with foolish pride. When we say things like that, we are stealing from the being, because the achievements on this path belong to the being. Thus, anyone claiming to be a great initiate is really stealing from their innermost.

It is better, before talking or uttering anything to understand that the mind will be proud of things that do not belong to it but to the Spirit.

The Master Samael said. “My Being is my Being, the Genie of Mars, the great Master, a Cosmo-creator, but if you want to talk about my insignificant person that has no value,” talking about his own mind, he said, “I have the value of cigarette ashes, less than that, when discarded in the street, that is what I am.”

I am not talking of this in a metaphorical way or symbolically, I am telling you the cruel reality of the matter: the being is the being. Yet, we always like to feel pride, and this is something we have to meditate on; we have to learn to not to be a thief, psychologically speaking. We have to learn to not be proud or to be vain, to be conceited, self-important and many of those other psychological problems associated with pride which we have a lot of. And, of course, on the lower planes we have to not steal things, physically speaking, but psychologically achieve what we want to perform.

If we are on the path, how can we walk it if we cannot accomplish the ten commandments, when we know they are related to the Tree of Life which are the parts of the Being?

Eighth Commandment                                           hod1

This brings us to the eighth commandment:

Thou shalt not lie or bear false witness against thy neighbour.

It is very easy to lie, in the heart. Hod is related to the emotional body which acts through the heart, the inferior emotions, subjective emotions.

We might say to ourselves that we do not lie, but sometimes we lie unconsciously. Often, when we feel enmity against anyone, when somebody makes us sick and we wish not to see this person, it is because we think that this person is like that inside, and so we are lying. That person may not be as we think they are, but rather we are feeling that way towards them because that person causes particular egos within us to react, and thus we identify with that reaction.

In another lecture I said that there was a group of people who were judging me, accusing me of something which I did not do. So, they were lying to themselves as they were believing something that somebody else told them, and they were sure in that moment that it was the truth and nothing but the truth. However, later on they knew that they were lying to themselves and to each other.

Sometimes, when feeling something in the heart against another, we have to meditate before saying something back as you should love your enemy because your enemy is that one that is hurting you, putting you in a certain way you do not like. To love your enemy is not to lie in other words, because anyone who is a victim of negative feelings is a liar and to find somebody in this world that does not lie is difficult. Control your emotions and you will not lie.

When we lie we are far away from the truth, and the truth is the Father. The Father is the truth and this truth is in the tongue, in the tongue of his Son, but his Son is always the one to judge.

Ninth Commandment                                          yesod1

And thou shalt not commit adultery, this is related with sex, the third Iod-י, Yesod-יסוד: 

And thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's spouse-ולא תחמד אשת רעך.

Remember that when the Pharisees brought up that adulterer woman to Jesus:

“They say unto him, Rabbi, this woman (Malkuth-מלכות) was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground (HaAdamah-האדמהMalkuth-מלכות), as though he heard them not.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground (HaAdamah-האדמהMalkuth-מלכות).

What did Jesus writte?

“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.” - Matthew 5:27,28

Then the Pharisees withdrew from there:

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman (Malkuth-מלכות) standing in the midst.

When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman (Malkuth-מלכות), he said unto her, Woman (Malkuth-מלכות), where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of (Malkuth-מלכות) the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” - John 8:4-12

Even when we have the ego annihilated and the soul is pure and accomplishing the commandments in the past, we were making false judgments.

Master Samael wrote: 

“One night, after a cosmic festivity which was celebrated in my honour for having been well qualified in the first initiation, I was precisely instructed...

“You must pay the crime for having assassinated the God Mercury,” was said unto me...

“Forgive me this karma...”

“This karma is unforgivable, and can only be paid by working with the Moon.”

Then, I saw how in each labor the Moon would more and more approach the planet Mercury, until finally mixing with it...

My innermost real Being, the God Mercury, Shiva, my Monad, while approaching me, told me, “You must wear the boots of the God Mercury.” He then put such boots on my feet...

The instant in which the great hierophant of the temple showed me a sports hall was sensational and extraordinary for me...

“Look!” he told me, “You converted the Temple of Mercury into a sports hall...”

Certainly, we all assassinated Hiram (the God Mercury) when we ate of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. That is why we were warned:

The day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Posteriorly, the path became frightfully difficult, and I had to suffer intensely...

It is obvious that the path of the razor’s edge is absolutely sexual; you know this...

My son! You have to patiently suffer the consequences of your errors,” my Divine Mother Kundalini uttered...

On another night, my Mother, filled with pain, exclaimed with a great voice, “My son! You have exchanged me for other women, there, in the physical world...”

“That was the past, Mother of mine, now I do not exchange you for anyone...”

“You have exchanged me for other women.”

“The past is the past, what matters is the present; I live from instant to instant, and I do wrong when arguing with you...”

“Past, present, or future, you are the same one...”

“You are right, Mother of mine...”

Then, how could I deny that I had converted the Temple of Mercury into a sports hall?" - The Three Mountains by Samael Aun Weor

So, when Christ ascends within you, it is because you have no ego, even then you do not have the right to judge anyone because you were also a sinner. When you are free of your own ego, obviously this is what we are working towards, but those people who still possess ego are in the same situation that you were in back in the past.

The ninth commandment related with the ninth initiation is: you shall not commit adultery.

In order to not commit adultery you have to love your own God. You have to be faithful, loyal to your own being and that is why it is written that Jesus loved Mary: Mary his Mother, Mary his sister and Mary his wife.

The Master Samael said when the husband loves his wife he has to see the Divine Mother represented in his wife, and he has to feel that he is the Holy Spirit and vice versa: when the woman is loving her husband she has to feel that she represents the Divine Mother that comes from the Holy Spirit and then you are faithful to your own being.

It is very difficult to be faithful, to not be an adulterer as we are explaining. In order to accomplish that commandment you have to enter matrimony and to have someone to love in this physical plane.

Guruji Swami Sri Yukteswar Giriji and Parahamsa Yogananda

Paramahansa Yogananda understood that, the necessity of being faithful to his own Divine Mother.

When his Guruji Swami Sri Yukteswar Giriji would tell him, “As a disciple you need to be married.”

Yogananda answered, “I only love my Divine Mother, all my love is for her.”

That was his answer, a beautiful answer, but he forgot that he needs a woman in order to build the internal bodies and to perform the Great Arcanum, because the best way to worship the Divine Mother is in the Sahaja Maithuna with sexual magic and Yogananda ignored that. He never understood that the best way to worship the Divine Mother is the sexual act and that is why he rejected it. Now, he will have to reincarnate in order to accomplish the path because he who enters into the nine initiations of minor mysteries has to be married if he wants to keep ahead; he reached that level of the nine minor initiations. Of course, to be single is an obstacle in order to awaken fully and to annihilate certain egos, so now he will want to return and work very consciously with the Major Mysteries.

Now you see and understand that the ten commandments are related to those minor initiations that we have to follow in the beginning and to understand, in order to enter into the Major Mysteries. We must study each Arcanum related with the Tree of Life.

Thank you very much
