There are students who exercise a lot of work in order to understand the Trinity. For example, they are accustomed to think in terms of the First Logos, Second Logos, and Third Logos, or Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, (Kether, Chokmah, Binah).

But another, second, trimurti or Trinity comes after this, in which we speak of Osiris, Isis, and Horus, and here is where students become confused. This is really because the conversion of one trimurti into another trimurti cannot be performed based on pure rationalism. There is a factor which is completely spiritual related with the conversion of Trimurtis, because only intuitively can this be learned, captured, grasped.

Kether / Father, Chokmah / Son, and Binah / Holy Spirit are three distinct persons and only one true God. This is how theology teaches this. These three persons, even when they are three, in depth are only one, who is the Father. The Son and the Holy Spirit are within the Father, in the same way as the body, the soul and the Spirit are within the true human being. Thus, within the Ancient of the Centuries, there is also the Son and the Holy Spirit, and they form a unique, integral, unitotal one. In ancient Egypt, that unique unitotal one was called Osiris.

Osiris can unfold himself, and when he does it he unfolds into Isis. Eve always comes from Adam’s rib, as above, so below; so, there is nothing rare in the solar Eve emerging from Osiris, the solar Adam; the solar Eve is the Urania-Venus, the spouse of the solar Adam. Two always comes from one. This is how the Father who is in secret has his spouse, who is the Divine Mother Kundalini. Osiris always has Isis as his spouse.

From the perfect union of these two, Osiris-Isis, the child Horus (Aurus) is born. She and he love each other, and as a result of their love, she conceives the Christ or Second Logos, who descends into her virginal and immaculate womb by the action and grace of the Holy Spirit, meaning by the action and grace of her spouse, the Third Logos.

But we have to take into account that even while she is the spouse of the Third Logos, within the Third Logos is the Second Logos and also the First Logos, because in the end, the Logos is the undividable, unitotal, and integral Trinity. A lot of subtleness is needed in order to understand this, a lot of refinement, synthesism, and intuition.

The conversion of trimurtis, one into another, is something that gives a lot of work to the students, but if you sharpen your intuition a little bit you will understand.

From the divine and holy copulation, Isis is impregnated by a sacred conception. She is a virgin before giving childbirth, within childbirth and after childbirth. Isis is our own particular Divine Mother Kundalini, Ram-Io.

This is how the advent of the child that in Egypt was called Horus occurs, the child that in Hebraic times was called Yeshua, our beloved Savior. Jesus of the gospels is profoundly significant because Jesus comes from the word Yeshua, which in Hebrew signifies savior.

Jesus, Yeshua, and Horus are the same; he is the child who always is in the arms of his mother Isis or Mary. He is the same Christ who has descended from the Second Logos. He is the Cosmic Christ already humanized and already converted into the child of a divine man and a divine woman. He has converted into a savior-king-child, but he is a particular-king-child, because he is one’s own Being. He is the crowned Child of Gold of Alchemy.


The second Logos Chokmah-חכמה and the baby Jeshua-יהשוה between Binah-בינה

He is Jesus Christ, because Christ is the Second Logos, and Jesus because he has converted into a savior. He has descended from his own sphere and has penetrated into a very pure and virginal womb in order to be converted into a savior, and to be born by the action and grace of the Holy Spirit (Binah-בינה as Father). Actually, he has become the child of (Binah-בינה as) the Divine Mother, in actual fact, the child of his own parents (Binah-בינה, Chaiah- חיה).

Undoubtedly, we must distinguish between Jesus Christ the great Kabir — who was the man who preached the doctrine of the intimate Christ of each one of us — and the individual, particular Jesus Christ of each one of us.

The Cosmic Christ is impersonal and universal and is beyond individuality, personality, and the “I.” It is a cosmic force that expresses himself through any human being who is properly prepared. Once it expressed itself through Jesus of Nazareth and likewise through Hermes Trismegistus, Buddha Gautama Shakyamuni,  Quetzalcoatl, etc. It can express itself through any avatar. In order to express itself, it has to descend from the superior spheres and enter a virgin’s womb, a virgin called Isis, Mary, Tonantzin, Insoberta, Maya, Cybele, etc., who is the same particular Cosmic Mother, because everyone has their own.” - Tarot and Kabbalah by Samael Aun Weor 

Today, we are going to speak about the three brains or the central nervous system, grand-sympathetic nervous system, and the parasympathetic nervous system, also called Vagus.

We explained about the law of Triamatzikamno, which is the law of three, in order to understand these three brains.

This law, Triamatzikamno sounds very exotic. It is related with the law of three, the three laws which are related with Daath-דעת and with the world of Briah-בריאה, creation. We have to understand that any atom is a trio of matter, energy, and intelligence. In Kabbalah this intelligence is Binah-בינה, Chaiah- חיה, consciousness, who in the mineral, plant, and animal kigdoms of the world of creation (Briah-בריאה) act through Abram-אברם, the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים, this, according to the Zohar: 

"And (in the Vav-ו or spinal medulla) the Spirit of Elohim-ורוח אלהים hovered upon the face (the head) of the waters." - Genesis 1:2

“The waters above (the cerebral-spinal-fluid, Adam) and the waters below (the genital-fluid, Eve) had become blended (in the Aleph-א of the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים, thanks to the Vav-ו, spinal medulla) and made fruitful, representing thus the union of male and female principles (joint in a perfect matrimony), therefore is it true (in the Aleph-א of Elohim-אלהים) that what is above is as what is below.”

"And (in the Vav-ו or spinal medulla) Elohim-אלהים said, Let there be light: and there was light." - Genesis 1:3

"These (Eleh-אלה) are the (solar) generations (of the Neshamoth Chayim-נשמת חיים) of the heavens and of the earth when they were created (Behibaram-בהבראם), in the day that Iod-Havah Elohim-יהוה אלהים made the earth and the heavens.” - Genesis 2:4

"It has been stated that in every passage of Scripture that the word Elah-אלה (Goddess) occurs, there is no connection with what precedes it. This is the ease with the passage just quoted. Its logical reference and connection is with the words "TohuVebohu-תהו ובהו" (formless and void) in Genesis 1:2.

There are those who say that the Holy One created worlds (of intellectual animal species or humanoids) and then destroyed them. Why were they destroyed? Because, as the Scripture says, "the earth was TohuVebohu-תהו ובהו" (formless and void) indicating the state of former worlds (of intellectual animal species or humanoids) before their destruction. But would it not have been better if he had not created them? Most certainly it would, and the explanation involves a great mystery. if you ask an explanation of what and wherefore, He destroyed them, our reply is this: In the first place the Holy One never has destroyed the work of his hands (Iodim-ידים or the two letters Iod-י of Aleph-א divided by the letter Vav-ו or spinal medulla).

"Iod-Havah-יהוה possessed me in the beginning of his way, and before he had created anything I was with him" - Proverb 8:22

And by this Berasheeth-בראשית (beginning) he created the heavens and the earth, the foundations of which were based on "Berith-ברית" (law or covenant of chastity), the letters of which are contained in Brith-Esh-ברית-אש (covenant of the fire of the kundalini). It is of this "Berith-ברית" (law or covenant of chastity) that scripture speaks: "Thus saith Iod-Havah-יהוה; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth." - Jeremiah 33:25

 "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, the Ruach Elohim-רוח אלהים) 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 (Binah-בינה, the Holy Spirit of Elohim-הרוח קודש אלהים), of which the letter Hei-ה (of Elohim-אלהים) 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 (chastity)." - Zohar

When we talk about matter and energy in this day and age, there are many theories about matter, but in reality matter is something abstract, unknown, because what we see in this physical world is only a form, forms of matter: a tree, a dog. a chair, a car, a person. All of those are just forms of matter, but the matter itself, when not bound by form is something that nobody can see yet exists.

When we talk about matter, really it is something abstract, we only see the form of it. Likewise, when we talk about energy, we see only the energy in movement, the action, phenomenons related with energy, but the energy itself, without action, not in movement, is something else that we cannot verify with the five senses. So, we cannot see it.

The third aspect of this trio, which any atom is composed of, is Binah-בינה, Chaiah- חיה, consciousness, intelligence. The scientists in this day and age are trying to find the intelligent design that created the entirety of this complicated universe of matter and energy. Well, we also have to state that this intelligence is also abstract, because if matter and energy are abstract concepts obviously intelligence is also. However, we cannot deny that we are in the universe of matter, energy and intelligence.

The truth is that if any atom is a trio of matter, energy, and intelligence, obviously if we are intelligent it is because that intelligence resides within each one of us. This is precisely what we have to comprehend and understand when we investigate this law of three or Trinity, because that intelligence is always active, in any type of matter or energy, whether in this galaxy or in any galaxy.

Tree of Life 2.0 plain

There are laws, as we have said in many other lectures that control the universe, inferior and superior laws. When we observe the Tree of Life, we find that every sphere (sephirah-ספירה in Hebrew) of the Tree of Life is related with different laws. It is the same in Klipoth: every sphere of the infradimensions is related with different intelligences, different laws.

So, when we talk about laws we are talking about Binah-בינה, Chaiah- חיה, consciousness, intelligence.

The Gnostic work is the effort to release ourselves from intelligences that bind us in the mechanicity of nature, because as we are, we are nothing but mechanical machines, moved by forces that we do not understand and are unaware of. We have to become truly intelligent.

We have to control that mechanicity, but in saying this, we are not denying that there is intelligence within that mechanicity.

In nature, in this physical world, we are submitted to forty-eight laws. We always state that these forty-eight laws are related to the cells of the human organism, which has forty-eight chromosomes: forty-six physical and two bio-electric, which are related with the superior part of the physical body, the vitality of the physical body, the etheric body.

So, those laws work in our physical body. And not only in our psychical body but in all of the bodies, in the mineral kingdom, plant kingdom, and animal kingdom.

All of nature is controlled by intelligences, thus we have to comprehend and understand what that intelligence is.

Every atom has that intelligence. Every element, plant, animal, mineral is controlled by an intelligence that controls all of the intelligences of the various atoms that form that cosmic unit. Let us use the example of a plant. A plant as you know has many atoms, in the synthesis of course, because it is a cellular organism, but in the end it is atoms. Every atom is an intelligence; all of those intelligences of that plant are controlled by a single intelligence that we call the Monad, which is the intelligence of the spirit, the elemental of the plant, the spirit of the plant in other words.

All plants, animals, minerals have that particularity, but they do not have their own willpower, or perhaps better put, the freedom of acting independently, even though they are independent units. They act collectively.

The intelligence that organizes those intelligences, those Monads, are of course intelligences that we find in other dimensions. Different religions call these intelligences Angels, Devas, Gods. They are represented in different ways, and they are what we could scientifically term, "intelligent design." It does not matter. In the end they exist because intelligences exists in the universe, in Nature.

So, nature is controlled by those intelligences. Let us use an example to better understand this. Let us suppose that the intelligence of an architect or engineer is going to dig a big hole in order to build a building. So, they dig, removing a lot of dirt in order to lay the foundation for that building. Obviously, when someone in the street sees that, they say: "Oh! Somebody is going to build a huge building here in he is digging there, and then they will put in cement." So this is acting according to the laws of this society.

But, in that dirt there is worms, insects, plants, that when they are taken out of their place they say, "What is going on here?" Right? The intelligence of those creatures is asking. "We are being removed from our place." Do you think that the engineer or the architect cares about that? If you go and said, "Hey, did you talk to the worms, to the intelligence of the plants and all that life that is there in that area in order to do that?" The engineer or the architect will say, "To hell with your theories. I am doing this because I have to do it. And a superior law, which is my intelligence is over that intelligence, if it does indeed exist."

So, you see that that superior intelligence which in this case is the engineer and the inferior intelligences, which are there, which are mechanical and are of course slaves or victims of that.

Seeing that from the Gnostic point of view, we know very well that those types of matter and energy, those living creatures whose lives were unceremoniously ended, will be reborn in a new matter, with a new energy, in order to continue their evolution, their development.

In the same way, in this nature, we find intelligences that are controlling the forces of nature. Of course, this present society, the scientists and academics of the colleges and universities and schools say, "Well, the ancient people believed that the elements were moved by the Gods. And the Gods were those intelligences that were related with those natural phenomenon." When they say that, they are not lying. Yet, because they can not see those intelligences, they say, "Oh. The Greeks, the Romans, and all of those cultures who spoke about those Gods in mythology invented them with their imagination because they could not explain those natural phenomenons." Obviously, this is backwards from the truth.

They knew about these superior intelligences because they saw them. They could see that those intelligences were performing those phenomenons. As we say, the insects, the worms that are in that area where that engineer is commanded to dig, they do not see the engineer. They do not know what is going on. They only know that they are removed. Right? But if you go and contact with those elements, what do they know about engineering, about architecture? They do not know anything about that, because they are not in the level of understanding what we are doing.

In the same way, science or scientists of this day and age, do not understand about the superior laws because they are related with inferior laws. How are you going to comprehend those intelligences that are very high and over you and controlling you and the elements and the forces, when you are not in that level? It is impossible.

So, they deny it, that those intelligences exists, as any worm can deny that the engineer exists. But does the engineer care about it? Well, those intelligences do not care either. They just continue their function in nature.

This, is why people think that God is unmerciful.

"Psh! God is unmerciful. A lot of people are being killed by earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes."

Well, those are just intelligences that being moved by superior intelligences, superior elements, in order to fix this planet. This planet is in agony, suffering. This is what we have to understand about the nature of intelligence. However, in order to comprehend deeper, we have to go into the different types of brains that give us that capacity.

slugs in the garden

According to evolution, in the animal kingdom we see the different brains of the creatures related with nature or the environment. Let us look to the example of a snail. When you see a snail on any leaf of any tree, eating that leaf or living in that leaf, that snail, from our point of view, is a uni-dimensional creature. Even though with our senses we see that snail has three dimensions.

That snail, in its self, its intelligence, only perceives one dimension, which is called "sensations." That is obviously related with that brain that operates through the sense of touch, which any insect has. In this case the snail only lives in the world of sensations, and it only feels the leaf on which it lives and eats. That is it. The snail does not know that there are other leaves on the tree because it does not perceive them, even though they are there.

If you take a needle and you poke that snail it will shrink with pain, because the sensation is transmitted into its body, into its brain which is only capable of decoding of sensations.

Cat and Dog

There are also other kinds of beings, other creatures that we call "dog" or "cat," among many others, that are related with two brains. These types of beings have another brain that sees the representations of those sensations.

If you pinch the paw of any dog, the dog will feel the pain and will look at you and look at the needle that you are using. The dog perceives the representation of that needle that is causing that pain and will take away his paw. So, you see there the difference between animals with two brains compared with animals with one.

We will say then that even we see a cat, a dog, with three dimensions because we are three dimensional beings, even though that cat that dog only lives in two dimensions, which are sensations and representations. Yet, according to the law evolution, when we arrive at the level of a humanoid, we receive a body with three brains. That is why we are called three-centered or three brained individuals, whose intelligence perceives nature and the universe through three brains. We receive sensations, we receive representations and we conceptualize, rationalize, reason, based on those receptions.

If somebody took that same needle and pricked us in the hand, we would feel the sensation, see the representation of the person that is doing it, and then ask, "Why are you hurting me? What are your motives? Are you angry against me?" In other words, we reason.


Reasoning is the function of the intellectual brain, and it is this that differentiates us from animals, which are only two or one brained creatures. That is why we are called "intellectual animals” because the word anima is a Latin word, or we will say a word that is rooted in Latin, which means "soul." It is that which perceives, an intelligence that perceives.

So, here we have three brains. We are the only creatures that can acquire individuality. We can acquire willpower in order to do, to achieve what we want, in accordance with the law. Indeed, in this day and age we find a lot of individuals that do what they want, but they are moved by what we call "blind will" or "self-will," which is the kind of will that is not attuned to the laws of nature. That is precisely the difference between us, as intellectual animals, and the other kingdoms of nature.

When you see a snail, when you see a cat, when you see a dog, those individuals, those creatures act out their will collectively, but they obey the laws of nature because the superior intelligences guide them very well, in order for them to know what is going on, in order for them to do what they must. Like for instance, in the case of the tsunami that happened in Asia. All of the animals knew what was going to happen because they were in harmony with the superior intelligences that were guiding them.

It was only those animals with three brains that were not in harmony with the superior laws that were victim of the tsunami, because they were doing their own whim, their own will, not acting in accordance with the laws of nature and the laws of the Being. This is precisely the mistake, the error that have made, and are making.

So, those who possess three brains are the only creatures that have the opportunity to developing self-will.

It comes into my mind, related with Hebrew mythology, the Hebrew Bible, in the New Testament where it is stated:


The body of good will on the Earth is Moses, Tiphereth

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." - Luke 2:14

Peace is harmony. However, people think that when the Bible says, "and on earth peace, good will toward men," they think that they are the people of good will; people for example that go and give to the poor or that help the needy, which is of course good. I am not saying that is bad. But what good will is, is we will say: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, to those creatures that have developed the body of willpower on the Earth" which is Tiphereth, which is precisely the goal of any cosmic unit, to become independent. Or, as the Bible says in the book of Genesis:

"And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For Elohim-אלהים doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Elohim-אלהים, knowing good and evil." - Genesis 3:4,5
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever has faith in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever has faith in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that has faith on him is not condemned: but he that has faith not is condemned already, because he hath not faith in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and humans loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." - John 3:14-19

The fact that we are three brained creatures signifies that we have the opportunity to develop. The first of the brains is what we call the intellectual brain in the physical brain, related with the cerebrum spinal nervous system or central nervous system. Then, there is the emotional brain, related with the grand-sympathetic nervous system. Finally, the motor-instinctual-sexual brain, related with the parasympathetic nervous system.

Physically, we see that these three brains are developed and related independently: the intellectual in the head, the emotional between the heart and the navel, and the motor in all of the spinal column, is the motor brain. So those forces related with the law of creation, with the Holy Triamatzikamno, which in Christianity is the Holy Trinity, the Trimurti of the Hindus, are the three ways in which the three intelligences of the universe organize any cosmic unit, any element, and this is why we are three brained beings. Let us, in this lecture, investigate further how we are constituted.

Even though we have three brains, it does not mean that we are in control of those three brains, because they are intelligences.

Obviously, we have different systems in our physical organism, in our machine. We have a digestive system, and we know that when we eat, our stomach will digest the food, etc. But are we interfering with that process? Are we conscious of that? We are not. We have the circulatory system in which the heart is performing a great job, transforming the impure blood into pure blood in connection with the respiratory system, with the oxygen that we breath. It is marvelous. But do we have any conscious perception of that? Do we know that? Well, we know it, but we are not conscious of that.

We have different systems, organs in our human body that perform marvelous works in order for us to be physically alive. We are submitted to laws, the 48 laws of this physical world; when we are in nature, we know that this nature is submitted to laws as well… Yet, we are not conscious of that. And we do not control that, even though we do the effort.

Medical scientists are trying to control the different diseases, sicknesses of the physical body, inventing drugs in order to cure this, to cure that, sometimes they succeed, sometimes not. There are always new sicknesses and we are victims of that. Regardless, it is obvious we are not in control of our bodies, and if we are not in control of our physical bodies, then for us to say that we are in control of our mind, of our psyche, of our spirit, would be a joke. In order to control the rest of our selves, first we have to control our matter, the lowest part of ourselves, we have to become conscious of it.

This is precisely the first step in the Gnostic doctrine, to be conscious of our physical life. When people enter into this knowledge, they start identifying themselves with the astral plane, with the mental plane, with the causal plane, and with other planes. But they forget that the physical plane is the first in which we have to control.

In order to control this physical body, we have to understand that there are intelligences in this body, because every atom is a trio of matter, energy, and intelligence.

There is intelligence in the digestive system. There is intelligence in the circulatory system. There is intelligence in all of the systems and organs of our physical body. To awake is to be aware of it and to start awakening physically. That is why it is written:

"In your patience possess ye your souls." - Luke 21:19

A famous saying of the Master Jesus of Nazareth.

Soul is intelligence. It is consciousness. "In your patience" means that this is a process that takes time. It is a work, a psychological work that we have to perform in ourselves, in order to possess the soul. To possess the soul, do you see that? Do you understand that? What is it to “possess ye your souls?” To possess ye your souls is to control the intelligence. That is not going to happen in one week, or one month, or one year. It is a process of being aware of one's self, because in order for this physical body to exist it needs an intelligence, and that intelligence is the Monad, which is our own Spirit that controls all of the atoms, intelligent atoms, in our organism, according to laws.

If we investigate, any one of us, we see that the intelligences that are in the atoms of all our organism are controlled by other laws, not by ourselves, other superior laws. That is why we say that they are mechanical; mechanical in the sense that we are not controlling them but that they control us. That is why Jesus says, "In your patience you have to control your souls. You have to possess your souls, which are bottled up in your many egos." because, right now, the souls bottled up in our many egos, are possessing us. In other words, the intelligences of nature are possessing us, controlling us.

Unfortunately, because of our ignorance, we are creating a lot of elements that we call psychological aggregates. Psychological aggregates are the elements that are added to our intelligence which are not intelligent, or in other words, are not acting in accordance with the laws.

Those superior laws control those undesirable elements in order for them to be in tune with the laws, and the way that those superior laws try to balance these aggregates is through the law of balance, which is the law of karma, and that is why we suffer.

We do not “possess,” we do not control those intelligences. That is the job. That is precisely our work, to control that. The symbol of this is portrayed very clearly in mythology.

Greek mythology speaks about Pluto or Hades, who is the king of hell. This hell, this Averno of the Greeks, is nothing more than the subconsciousness, the unconsciousness of all of those intelligences of our body that act without our intervention, that act mechanically. Those aggregates are a form of intelligence; when I said mechanical, it does not mean that it is not intelligent. It is intelligence, but it is not our intelligence, because we are not in control of it.

Rafael El Parnaso Estancia del Sello Roma 1511

Απολλων with the Elohim-אלהים

Here you find the story of Orpheus. Orpheus says, "I am going to go down and to take Eurydice (the trapped consciousness) out (of hell) in order to be with my soul." The consciousness in this case is called Eurydice. There are many operas, many books about this story, about how Orpheus goes into hell in order to free Eurydice (the consciousness), with the help of the Elohim, the Gods who allow him to descend into the abyss as Ἀπολλύων. However, he does not succeed; though, in the end - with the help of Απολλων - he succeeds in different ways.

The same thing happens with us. That Pluto, that Hades, which in Christian terms, in the Old Testament, in the book of Exodus is the Pharaoh who controls the Israelites, but Moses wants to free the Israelites from that Pharaoh and that tyranny which controls the inferior laws. For that intelligence is mechanical, but still intelligent. Or as the bible says it:

"And I (as Binah-בינה, Iod-Havah Elohim-יהוה אלהים) will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the earth (Malkuth-מלכות) of Mitzrahim-ארץ מצרים. But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children (archetypes) of Israel (or the Neshamoth Chayim-נשמת חיים), out of the the earth (Malkuth-מלכות) of Mitzrahim-ארץ מצרים by great judgments." Exodus 7:3,4

So, we have to control it, and the fight to control is represented in the fight that Moses has against the Pharaoh, or that Orpheus has against Hades. This is a battle, an internal battle that we have to perform.

It is only possible with three brains because it is through the three brains that we have to do it. And this is because only a creature with three brains has the ability to control the three primary forces of the universe that Christianity calls Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that in Hinduism are Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva; that in Kabbalah we call Kether, Chokmah, Binah; that the Mayans call Huracan, Tepeu, and Gukumatz; what the Aztecs call Ometecuhtli, Quetzalcoatl, and Tlaloc; and they are Odin, Baldur, and Thor in the Nordic mythology.

So, we find in different religions different names of course because they speak different languages in relation with the same thing and how these three primary forces can help any individual in order to develop and to control his own physical body, his own intelligence. That is why the first step in this Gnostic work is to observe our three brains because the inner intelligence of our Being acts according to the law, through the three brains.

Through the three brains is how we accomplish our own particular, individual karma. This is how, through our three brains, we receive the help of the superior laws, because the superior beings want to help us, in order for us to be responsible elements. But, they know that in order for us to acquire that responsibility we have to work in ourselves.

The word responsibility is something that we have to understand. Responsibility means the ability to respond with intelligence, because there are a lot of people that respond but not with intelligence. Right? To respond with intelligence is to be aware of ourselves.

If somebody insults you, and you answer with another insult, you are not being responsible for yourself. In that moment, you are being manipulated by a certain aggregate. Then you are making of your life a hell. But, if you control that, it means that you are being responsible for your own self. To do so requires tremendous willpower, and this is precisely what the other creatures do not have.

Animals do not have individual willpower, but collective. We want to be individuals, we want to exercise that ability of developing that willpower but understand that willpower could be developed in two ways.

If we exercise willpower in a very selfish way, then a demon is developed. In such a case, that will is exercised through anger, through pride, through vanity, through laziness, through lust, etc. That is a demon, because all of those elements that we named are against the laws. They are breaking the laws. It is why they are called sins, or errors, or defects.

In order for us to exercise a true responsibility, cosmic universal responsibility, we have to tune our intelligence to be united with our own particular individual God, with our own Being. It is through the three brains that we do this because our inner Being acts through the three brains, if we are remembering them, if we are, from second to second, remembering our Being and observing the three brains.

It is through this conscious activity that we discover that any particular activity of our intelligence is always related with the three brains, whether this intelligence is trapped within the ego or free from ego. That is why we say in Gnosticism that every single psychological aggregate is intelligence that is trapped within the error and that acts through the three brains. Life, as it is, enters into our psyche our intelligence through the sense but immediately it targets any of the three brains. This is precisely why we have to always be aware of ourselves during daily life, in order to see the different events of life, to see which brain it is targeting.

You can not deny that there are some events that are related with the intellectual brain, other events with the emotional brain, and other events related with the motor-instinctual-sexual brain.

Right now, for instance, I am using my intellectual brain in order to communicate this knowledge to you. You are sitting there and taking it with your intellectual brain, but we have to do the effort to remember God in order for that information to go directly into the consciousness, and to not be taken mechanically. If we do not make that effort, if we receive this mechanically, it will only be stored in the personality, in the Gnostic personality that anyone can develop. So, it is by observing ourselves, our three brains, that we discover what kind of individuals we are.

Some might say that, according to the lecture "The Seven Personalities," we say that there are intellectual personalities, emotional personalities, and motor-instinctual personalities; that they are centered in any of the three brains. But we have to comprehend that even though we are centered specifically in one brain, it does not mean that the other two brains are not acting, that our intelligence does not act through them too.

In order to understand this better, we have to become familiar with the five centers.

When we always talk about the motor-brain, we always say the “motor-instinctual-sexual” brain. Why do we say that? Because in reality we have five cylinders or five centers which are related with these three brains: the intellectual cylinder or center in the intellectual center; the emotional center located precisely in the solar-plexus; the motor center, which is located in the very top of the spinal column; the instinctual center, which is located in the coccyx, the very base of our spinal column; and, the sexual center which is in our genitals. These five centers are precisely that which we have to study.

These five centers always act through the three brains because we are three centered beings. In actuality, we have seven centers. The superior emotional center and the superior intellectual center, two more centers that we have, but they are not related with ego, only with the Being. That is why we always omit those, because they are always related with certain elements that we have to do or to perform.

If you observe every single center or cylinder, you will see that it is divided into three: it’s intellectual part, related with the intellectual brain; its emotional part related with the emotional brain; and its motor part related with the motor brain.

If we are intellectuals, if we are centered in the intellectual center, obviously we have emotional-intellectual activities and motor-intellectual activities. A writer, for example, is an intellectual person. Obviously, when he is writing he is using his intellect and his motor center. And, if he observes his heart, he feels some emotions, but those emotions are related with the intellectual brain.

We also find people that are very emotional, like actors. An actor is an emotionally centered profession. But obviously, in order to act he has to memorize all what he has to say in a certain scene or in a movie or in a theatre. And that of course is using the intellectual brain from his emotional center. When he is acting, he is using it, and the motor brain is in activity through the motion.

What about the motor center? When you are dancing, you have to use your intellectual part of your motor center. And the emotional part of your motor center, because you are moving the main center that is in activity there is the motor center. According to how you are inspired with the music, you move.

Now, what of an instinctual centered person, like a boxer or a martial artist? Obviously, the intellectual part of that instinctual center, the emotional part of that instinctual center are very fast. Indeed, the intellectual center is the second fastest of all the centers. In contract, the intellect is the slowest center, and the sexual center is the fastest of them all.

Obviously, we are creatures moved by cylinders, five cylinders and the three brains related with them. But we are not aware of this, and that is precisely the work that we have to perform.

By making the effort to become aware of the functioning of these centers is how we start to develop willpower, because in order for us to take control of the three brains and the five centers, we have to exercise our intelligence which is our consciousness, in order to possess our souls. It is impossible to do it without willpower. That is why the Master Samael Aun Weor advises that the source of the development willpower is the effort to control the sexual energy. He also advises that we should save not only the sexual energy but also our emotional energy and mental energy, but the foundation of this is the sex. By transmuting the sexual energy, our consciousness receives a shock, and it increases our willpower.

In different books of the Master Samael Aun Weor we hear about electronic bodies or solar bodies, or soul bodies. These bodies are precisely that intelligence.

If we create a solar astral body, we have a body that exercises power, control over the twenty-four laws. A solar mental body is a body that exercise control over twelve laws. The causal body exercises power over six laws. So, we have to build these solar bodies in order to be in control of different laws of this universe. First, however, we have to control this physical body that is related with forty-eight laws. This is what it is to possess soul.

Indeed, the Master says that even the physical body has to become soul. That means that you have to control your physical body, your three brains, with your willpower. It is impossible for us to believe that someone that is victims of his emotions, victim of his mind, of his instincts, habits, customs is in control, has willpower over his body.

Obviously, if you observe your life you will see that we are not in control of our life. On the contrary, life controls us, in different ways. Karma it is called, elements or circumstances that we created and that control us. The problem with us is that we want to control others, and that is what we call black magic.

We will say, "Oh! Well, I am not a black magician. I am a student that is trying to develop Gnosis, good things." But if you observe yourself, really, you will see that you are ninety-seven percent black.

Sometimes you might find that you exercise black magic, which is precisely the activity of using one’s willpower in order to control others. Even if it is in a very minor or simple way, it is still black magic. Or, perhaps we find ourselves trying to control other laws of nature and the cosmos with our own particular selfishness, without taking into account others, forcing others to abide our will. That is why an example of this great law that we are talking about is synthesized in that prayer of the Lord, when he was on the Mount of the Olives, kneeled and ready to receive his own karma, to wash the karma of the world, Tikum Olam-תיקום עולם.

“Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Thine be done.” - Luke 22:42

Jesus kneels, and, clairvoyantly, he sees very clearly what is coming. The cross, the crucifixion. He could, if he chose to, avoid it, because he has the power to do so. He could with his own will. Why not? He has already developed, but he remembered his God and said, "Well, the superior laws here have to control the inferior laws. If I do my will, maybe I will commit a mistake. My God knows more than me, always. So, Father, if it is possible take this cup of bitterness from me. But not my will, but thine be done." Then, he says, "I am ready." Because his Father is going to take care of his will.

Do you see? "Not my will, but thine be done." That is a harmony of one’s will with the will of God. And, of course, the will of God knows more. There are a lot of things that being played there. And if you are blind, you do not know, you can commit a mistake. And then you go according to that, and you allow yourself to be moved by your forces of your Being. And sometimes those forces of your being that is moving [you] from here to there contradict people in the Earth, because we are submitted unfortunately in our psychological aggregates to self-will. The will of religions, the will of the government, the will of this of that, because we are submitted to a lot of laws here, in this physical world, that have nothing to do with what we are talking about there.

We have to control our intelligence. We have to observe ourselves. Nobody can do it for us, only ourselves. That is why Jesus says, "In patience you will possess your souls." Do not come here and tell me, "Oh no. Jesus died two thousand years ago, so now he is going to possess my soul just because I believe in him." He did not say that. He said, "You will possess your souls, in your patience, if you do the work." But he did not say, "I am going to possess your souls with my patience, so you do not need to do anything. Just relax." He did not say that because it is a personal work that we have to do.

Of course, he can help us. Regarding these matters, I remember precisely something that happened in Mexico. The Master Samael was giving a lecture related with meditation, related with the analysis of the ego. When he finished he said, "Well, let us now enter into meditation, having explained this."

Then one of the students says, raised his arm and said, "Master, please can you help me to do my comprehension?"

“Well," says the Master, "the only help that I can give you is this explanation, but to comprehend your ego is your business. I cannot comprehend your ego. And if I comprehend your ego, it is my intelligence that is doing it, so it is good for me but not for you."

The Triamatzikamno, the three primary forces of the universe and the cosmos want to create in each one of us a creature capable of being aware of all of the intelligences of the universe. So, when you study the Tree of Life, you see of course that every world, or every sephirah is related with different laws, as we said in the beginning.

When somebody acquires the control of the whole intelligence of himself, which is related with the universe, that individual receive the title of Paramarthasatya. Para is a Sanskrit word which means Absolute. Martha means “intelligence, consciousness,” and in Christianity it is called humility, humbleness. And if you reflect in that you will see how really Martha is related with that. It is the individual which is in tune with the universe; Martha, completely awakened, is humble.

When you talk with the Master Jesus, his humility is natural because. He is aware and there is no pride there. He is a Satya, a Paramarthasatya, an individual which is completely awakened and that is aware of his own intelligence and the intelligence of the universe, not only of this planet but of the solar system, the galaxy, and the galaxies, and not only of this infinite, but many infinites.

He is one who has the right to go into the bossom of the Abstract Absolute as a Paramarthsatya, a being which is completely in charge of himself. And for that he reflects the universe, the infinite in himself completely in harmony. That is a title that Master Jesus has, Paramarthasatya.

But, what about us? What are we? Are we in control of the physical body? Do we control our three brains, our five centers? No, that is why we are here. We have to control it. And, that is a process of patience. It is precisely what the Gnostic has to develop, patience, because it is not an intellectual or mental process. It is an intelligent process which is related with the consciousness.

Remember that intelligence has nothing to do with the mind. The mind is only an element that the intelligence uses, in order to do what it has to do. It is an instrument. Unfortunately, we are very identified with the mind, and those lower mental elements that act in us, through our three brains, follow the mechanicity of the laws, of the other intelligent forces that are controlling us. On the other hand, a being that controls the laws, whose intelligence takes over the three brains controls the law of the Triamatzikamno, this holy trinity, the law of three, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in harmony is a god.

What is a god? What do you call a god? A being that manages the intelligences of all the parallel universes, of all the spheres of the universe. That is a god; that which is harmony with the forces of nature, of divinity, of the law. You can call it an angel, if you want, or deva. It does not matter.
