Duality and the Trinity of the Tree of Life (Kabbalah) and Tree of Knowledge (Tantra)

There must be love between husband and wife, because love is the base, the foundation of the great work.

Unquestionably, the great arcanum corresponds exactly to tantric science, to tantra. There are three kinds of tantra: white tantra, black tantra, and gray tantra.

White tantra is understood as the sahaja maithuna without ejaculation of the ens-seminis. Because as Philippus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (Aureolus Paracelsus) wisely said: “within the ens-seminis is found all the ens-virtutis of fire”. Thus, in white tantra the ejaculation of the ens-seminis is excluded.

Black tantra is different. The black tantrics commit the crime of spilling the cup of Hermes Trismegistus during the sahaja maithuna, and this is serious, because in this way they develop the abominable kundabuffer organ.

I want you to understand that through white tantra the awakening of the sacred serpent (the Nahash Nahashoth נחש נחשת or serpent of Bronze) is achieved in a positive way. The serpent is, let's say, the solar electronic fire, the sexual power, let's say, in its most subtle state, a type of transcendental energy. Obviously, that sacred fire, that "kundalini" as it is called in the east, rises through the spinal canal, and as it rises, it awakens each one of the intimate powers of the human being.

In black tantra everything is different. The black tantrics commit the crime, as I already said, of spilling the cup of Hermes. Then the kundalini, instead of rising, descends, precipitates from the coccyx downwards to the atomic infernos of the humanoid.

That fire rushing downwardly towards the lower animal depths is what is called the “kundabuffer organ”, which turns one, in fact, into a dark personality, into a terribly perverse demon.

But there is also gray tantra. In gray tantra, the question of seminal ejaculation is not given much importance: sometimes it is ejaculated, sometimes it is not ejaculated. In short, in conclusion, the only thing they want is to perpetuate sexual enjoyment, the enjoyment of chemical intercourse with the purpose of satisfying their senses, and that, in fact, is a crime that leads to nothing; in the long run it becomes black magic of the worst quality.

Thus, what is important is white tantra, but spilling the glass of Hermes Trismegistus should be carefully avoided (as I already said).

Restrained desire will raise, transform or transmute, let us say, the sacred sperm into energy; and that energy will ascend through certain pair of channels that are placed around the spine. In the east, these channels are called "Ida" and "Pingala".

The moment will come when the forces of Ida and Pingala, that is, the solar and lunar powers, will unite in the Triveni, near the coccyx, and as a result the kundalini serpent will awaken; it will go upward along the spinal cord to radically transform us.

During the practice you have to chant the mantras Iiiiii. Aaaah. Ooooo...

Disciple: Is chanting out loud better?

Samael Aun Weor: if you can sing out loud, so much the better; if you can't sing out loud, well, in a very quiet voice; and if it is not possible in a quiet, soft way, then, even if it is done with the mind; it all depends on the circumstances.

Undoubtedly, there should be no animal passion during the practice of sahaja maithuna. Purity of thought is required. It is unquestionable that sex has its own flavor, and it is the erotic state, and this is natural. But lust is something else. Lust is a question, let's say, of bestial thoughts, of profanation, right? Undoubtedly, when you have morbid thoughts, there is lust, and it must be carefully avoided; not to have, in practice, morbid thoughts of any kind. An uplifting and essentially dignifying attitude is needed; may there be purity in thought, in word and in deeds. This is how it should work.

At the beginning it is not advisable to do long practices because since the body is not used to it, it can resent it. Practices should be short at first, a few minutes at most. As time goes by, practices can be lengthened; it's a matter of time.

If, unfortunately, an orgasm of a physiological type occurs, then it is advisable to withdraw from the act and lie face up on the floor, hold your breath (if possible controlling the nostrils with the index finger and thumb), and holding the breath it sends the nervous current downwards, towards those sphincters that communicate with the sexual glands, let us say with the urethra, to prevent the sacred sperm from being eliminated. If the effort is very great, you have to hold your breath and then in no way will it be a fall. The fall is only such, when the orgasm has been provoked by our willpower. But if the orgasm came involuntarily and if, in addition, the tantric man makes an effort, sacrifices himself, fights lying down in the dorsal decubitus position, that is, face up, holding back for that orgasm to prevent the escape of the seminal liquor, then there has been no fall. The fall, I repeat, occurs when one provokes the orgasm, when there are “nods of our willpower”, when one bows before the beast without having to carefully avoid the physiological orgasm.

Disciple: For the couples who are starting out, it is important to practice it with the Tao key, right?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, I haven't heard of that key except from the master G. K..; I don't know, let's say, about this type of practice, and since I haven't used it, I haven't practiced it, I can't give a concept about it, right?

Disciple: In one of your books, I heard you will give descriptions of different sexual positions, is that true?

Samael Aun Weor: I gave, precisely, all the sacred positions; those that are in The Mystery of the Golden Flower. Yes, there are some even illustrated in there. It is good to thoroughly study that book, because by means of it you can orient yourself intelligently.

The master G. K. has practiced maithuna with the Tao key and of course, he can give his concept of it. I couldn't speak on this practice because when I practiced the maithuna, when I worked with the maithuna, I never used the Tao key. I have based myself exclusively, we could say, on the asanas that have been given in the eastern world for the practice of the maithuna, as they are written in some sacred texts of Hindustan and Tibet. I do not mean that the Tao key is not useful, since it gave very good results to the master G. K., and possibly some who have practiced it, it has given them very good results, right? I only refrain from passing comment on it, because I have not experienced it; and one cannot conceptualize about that which one has not experienced for oneself.

Disciple: Of the sexual positions, I believe that this may be the most favorable, because it is the one in which there is less risk, I believe.

Samael Aun Weor: In any case, there is, I believe, in The Mystery of the Golden Flower all the tantric positions, or tantric asanas that are used in the eastern world for the practice of the sahaja maithuna.

Disciple: Master, regarding the mantra I.A.O., if it is mantralized out loud, how should the mind think that the seminal vapors rise?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, it's better that you don't think; what goes up, goes up; it rises without the need for one to think about it. It is obvious that by restraining, let us say, the animal impulse, the sacred sperm is transformed into energy. That energy, in turn, is bipolarized into positive and negative solar and lunar currents. The positive (solar) ones ascend by Pingala and the negative (lunar) ones by Ida. In any case, they are a pair of nerve cords that exist in the spinal cord; the solar and lunar currents always rise there. Solar atoms are positive, lunar atoms are negative. When they make contact in the Triveni, near the coccyx, the awakening of the sacred fire comes.

Disciple: Also, when practicing the great arcanum, it is an opportune moment to eliminate defects, right?

Samael Aun Weor: Yes, it is true: during the practice of the sahaja maithuna, if one wants, one can beg devi-kundalini, the potential shakti, our particular Cosmic Mother (because each one has their own), to eliminate from our psychic nature this or that psychological error, which we have already thoroughly comprehended, completely, at all levels of the mind.

Disciple: Does this refer to the Divine Mother Kundalini?

Samael Aun Weor: You have to beg her; the scriptures say: "ask and it will be given to you, knock and it will be opened to you"...

Disciple: At the moment in which the sahaja maithuna is being practiced, a cherub is formed, right?

"Something is created when a man and a woman unite sexually. In those moments of supreme adoration, he and she are really only one androgynous being with powers to create like the Gods. The Elohim are male and female. Man and woman united sexually during the supreme ecstasy of love are really one terrifically divine Elohim." -The Perfect Matrimony

Samael Aun Weor: Well during the sahaja maithuna the masculine and feminine forces are mixed, right? And, naturally, a certain inner power can be used for... any case, what is vital, what really matters is the supplication to the potential shakti, to our particular Cosmic Mother.

In the Hebrew kabbalah, for example, there is a lot of talk about the kabbalistic sephiroth. Mention is made of Kether, the ancient of days, the truth of truths, the mercy of mercies, the hidden of the hidden, etc. Then follows Chokmah; Chokmah is the intimate Christ. Then follows Binah, he is the Holy Spirit, the lord Shiva, the Archi-hierophant and Archi-magician; in turn, lord Shiva unfolds in the particular cosmic mother of each one of us.

Tree of Life 2.0 plain

Needless to say, that each of us has their own Shiva, like their own Chokmah and their own Kether. Unquestionably, this particular Shiva splitting asunder into the kundalini mother is extraordinary. She, the Divine Mother, is the Eve from above, the heavenly Eve and this divine couple are the foundation of everything.

Then come the other sephiroth of the kabbalah, those of the triangle that we could call ethical: they are Chesed, the innermost; Geburah, which is our spiritual soul, which is feminine; and Tiphereth, our human soul, which is masculine.

Afterwards, it becomes, the wonderful magic triangle, formed by Netzach and the mental world, our own particular mind; then Hod which is the astral body; and Yesod which is, let us say, the vital or etheric body and also the Linga Sarira of the Hindustani. Malkuth, properly speaking, is the physical world.

But well, what I want to tell you is that he and she, Shiva-Shakti (our Father who is in secret and our Divine Mother), meet in the cubic stone of Yesod, that is, in the ninth sphere (or sephirah), in sex. There they meet, there they unite sexually.

There is also the wonderful sephirah Daath, of which the Hebrew kabbalists speak about, which is the sephirah of wisdom, intelligence, understanding, and above all, it is the sephirah (speaking specifically), of tantric science.

Unquestionably, Daath is tantra; only through tantra can we achieve the intimate self-realization of the being. Without tantra, without Daath, it would not be possible to reach self-realization.

There are different schools that think that the kundalini can be awakened, for example, through pranayama. Such a concept has no fundamental basis. Those who have advocated such an erroneous idea are not true initiates, or at least they have not reached enlightenment.

Disciple: Pranayama is what they call the bachelor practice, right?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, pranayama is the system that exists for the transmutation of sexual energies through breathing, that singles practice. Unquestionably, pranayama is useful for clearing the canals of Ida and Pingala.

It usually happens that some sparks escape, let's say, from that coccygeal center, from that center where the serpentine fire is enclosed, and that they rise through the Sushumna canal, that is, the spinal canal, and produce some illuminations or awakenings.

But it happens that those who are not properly self-realized, or those who are not really... speak more clearly, without fear of vagueness of any kind, believe that because a spark has awakened, one has already awakened the kundalini fire and that is not true.

The sacred kundalini serpent awakens only through tantric science, through the wise combination of masculine and feminine powers.

The very psycho-physiological fact that the chakra or magnetic center where the kundalini is enclosed, is found between the sexual organs and the anus, tells us a lot, right?


And if you then carefully observe the shape of that chakra, you can see a yoni in the center, a female yoni (of course, because the yoni is female), and inside the yoni in the center there is a phallus, that is, a lingam; and in that lingam or phallus (which means the same thing), the sacred serpent is coiled.

This is interesting, right? That these are the lingam-yoni in an esoteric, mystical or magical gesture, in the center of that chakra; it is something that should make us reflect.

Let's not forget that the lingam is the phallus, and the yoni is the uterus; and I repeat: we must meditate a lot on the fact that the sacred serpent is coiled three and a half times, precisely, in that magical phallus, which is in the center of the chakra and inside the lingam. This is telling us that only through the lingam-yoni is it possible to awaken the igneous serpent of our magical powers.

Any other system to awaken the kundalini is in fact absurd, contrary to the physiological constitution, or better to say, the psycho-physiological constitution of the muladhara chakra.

Tree Of Lives 1

Thus, only through transcendent sexual eroticism is the awakening of the igneous serpent of our magical powers achieved. She rises through the spinal canal, and in her ascension, she awakens each one of the centers, let's say, of the dorsal spine, opens each one of the seven churches.

The first to open is, obviously, the church of Ephesus, which gives us powers within the mineral kingdom.

The second, then, is at the height of the prostate, the church of Smyrna. As the woman does not have a prostate, well, we would say that in the woman it is at the height of the uterus. In women, instead of the prostate chakra, she has the uterine chakra, which is the same (prostate or uterine chakra is the same); she still has her chakra. That is the church of Smyrna that gives powers over the waters of life.

The third church that opens is the one in Pergamos; it is located, here, in the region of the solar plexus. That gives us the power of telepathy and also the power over universal fire.

And the fourth church that opens is that of Thyatira, which is, here, in the heart, in the cardias. When that chakra awakens, we can enter and leave the physical body at will; when that chakra is awakened, we can also manage the jinn states.

When one places the physical body within the fourth dimension, within the fourth coordinate, within the fourth vertical, one is naturally using the powers of the cardias. Certainly, I speak in general of the cardiac chakra, the Anahata chakra, which is nothing other than the church of Thyatira.

If we go a little higher, we enter the fifth church, which is that of Sardis. Yes, when the fire reaches the height of the creative larynx, that wonderful church opens, and then we acquire clairaudience.

When the fire reaches the height of the eyebrows, the church of Philadelphia opens, and we acquire clairvoyance.

When the fire reaches the height of the pineal gland, the church of Laodicea opens and then we acquire polyvoyance, intuition. It is precisely in the church of Laodicea where the wedding of Shiva-Shakti must take place.

The Shakti, that is, the Divine Mother, must rise like a serpent, like a viper along the spinal canal; and it is here, precisely in the pineal gland, where she comes to marry, formally, with lord Shiva. That is why here in the head there is a tattva that vibrates intensely: the Shiva-Shakti tattva. And the fire, finally, comes to radically transform one.

Unquestionably, fire has seven degrees of power, right? That's obvious. There is a need to develop each of these degrees of fire power. However, we must speak clearly: one comes to fully enjoy, let's say, the powers of kundalini or of the mother kundalini, when she, the serpent, totally devours us. She must swallow the soul, likewise she must devour the spirit.

When she has managed to devour us, we will truly come to enjoy the powers of the serpent. Before that, we pass through merely preparatory states. In turn, there will come a day on the esoteric path, when the eagle swallows the serpent (this represents a more advanced work).

The eagle is the Third Logos, the Holy Spirit, lord Shiva, the Arch-hierophant, the Arch-mage. When he swallows the serpent, well, obviously the feathered serpent remains exclusively in us, right? Why? Because she is the serpent, and the eagle is the Third Logos. When the Third Logos swallows the serpent then we have the feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl. That is, the self-realized human, the perfect human, the resurrected human, the human-god.

Disciple: The artists painted the eagle swallowing the snake, is it the same?

Samael Aun Weor: Precisely. This is represented in the symbol that we have here on the national flag: the eagle, the third logos, must swallow the serpent. But first the serpent must devour you, devour your soul, devour your spirit, swallow you; and when that has been achieved, then the Third Logos, the eagle, devours her.

Disciple: Is that when the snake swallows the soul, it swallows everything, is it when all the defects, the “I’s”, the egos are destroyed?

Samael Aun Weor: It is obvious, because the Divine Mother does not eat garbage, she does not eat anything filthy. She, the sacred serpent, could never devour anything unworthy. So that the soul can be devoured, the spirit, all our superior conscientious principles, etc., etc., well, we have to have radically eliminated the various subjective elements of perceptions, all the inhuman elements. As long as one has not eliminated all that is inhuman within, well, it is impossible for the sacred viper to devour us.

I repeat, she does not eat anything unworthy, she does not eat garbage; when the serpent radically devours us we are converted into the serpent. That is why Wotan, the great Mexican master, says: “I went through the snake's hole, a hole that reaches from the center of the earth to the root of the heavens; and I was able to enter that hole, in that passage of the serpent, because I am a serpent”...

Let us remember that all the great hierophants that exist in Babylon, Greece, etc., etc... were feathered serpents, that is obvious. The igneous wings that shine on the backbone of the angels, are the same wings that I am talking about; they are always opened by the fohat; they are the wings of the caduceus of mercury. So, the important thing is to get swallowed by the snake.

Disciple: Master in relation to the practice of the great arcanum: does the mere fact of the male and female being united, without lust (with love, but without lust), produce all kinds of phenomena, or is it necessary to add something more to it as soon as to mind, as for mantras; or is the simple union strong enough?

Samael Aun Weor: The simple union of man and woman is more than decisive, because in those moments Adam-Eve are one single being: they are a perfect androgyne. Unquestionably, at that moment, you are enveloped with an extraordinary magnetic light; if they do not commit the crime of spilling the cup of Hermes, then they will retain that light and with it they will be able to transform themselves, purify themselves.

There are two trees that are basic in life: one, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil; and the other, the Tree of Life.

The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is sex.

The Tree of Life is formed by the ten sephiroth of the Hebraic kabbalah. They are all those suprasensible regions that esotericists call:

  1. Kether, that is, the world of the father
  2. Chokmah, the world of the Christ
  3. Binah, the world of the holy spirit
  4. Chesed, the world of Atman the ineffable universal spirit of life
  5. the world of Geburah, which is the buddhic or intuitional world
  6. the causal world of Tiphereth
  7. the world of Netzach or mental world
  8. the world of Hod, that is, the astral
  9. the world of Yesod, the sexual substance, the ethereal world
  10. and Malkuth, the physical world.

These regions form the universe, it is what is called "Tree of Life".

Disciple: One human has the seven bodies: the mental body, the vital body, the astral body…?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, it is clear that the humanoids do not have the stature of a human; the ordinary humanoids think they have those bodies but they still do not.

Disciple: They have to create them!...

Samael Aun Weor: The only thing that the common and current humanoid has is the planetary body, and within the planetary body, yes, there is the vital seat (the one that sustains the organic principles, the body that serves as a base for the vital principles), and a little deeper down, what the humanoid has is the ego, the “I”, the myself.

There is also something very decent in the humanoid: the essence. But, that psychic essence is nothing more than a fraction, let's say, of Tiphereth, a bottled fraction, inserted, embedded among all those psychic aggregates that form the ego, the “I”, the myself, the self-willed.

Thus, "intellectual animals" claim things they do not have; they boast of having a sidereal vehicle, of possessing the mental and causal bodies, and I don't know what else, but they have not really manufactured anything like that yet. In order to have them you have to create them; and it is only possible to create them through the transmutation of the sperm into energy.

In other times, life was very different: in the time, for example, of Lemuria, people lived according to the fulasnitamnian principle. That fulasnitamnian principle allowed human beings to live very long ages, reaching up to 12 and 15 centuries. Each human being could live 12, 15 centuries; enough time to be able to create the superior existential bodies of the Being, through the fulfillment of the Being-Partkdolg-Duty.

What is the Being-Partkdolg-Duty? The Being-Partkdolg-Duty is our cosmic duty, and that duty must be fulfilled; the inhabitants of Lemuria fulfilled that duty. Thus, they prolonged life up to 12 and 15 centuries, more than enough time to create the superior existential bodies of the Being.

But when the "intellectual animals" forgot the fulfillment of that cosmic duty, that is, the Being-Partkdolg-Duty, when they developed the abominable kundabuffer organ, their life was shortened and then they were subjected to a very different law, the law that governs the life of every animal: the Itoklanos principle.

Since then, based on this principle, the "intellectual animals" die when it is least expect it, their life lasts 60, 80 years and die; they no longer have time to create the superior existential bodies of the Being, unless they really dedicate themselves to it.

When the human being lived according to the fulasnitamnian principle, it was different, because then he fulfilled the cosmic duty to wonder. That cosmic duty or Being-Partkdolg-Duty consists precisely in becoming aware of all the activities of the five cylinders of the organic machine.

For example, the "intellectual animal" normally has five cylinders in its organic machine: the first cylinder is the intellectual center. The inhabitants of Lemuria did not accept in their minds, in their intellect, any information, any data of which they were not fully aware. If an inhabitant of Lemuria, for example, studied a book, he spent whole years studying it, because he had to become fully aware of each word of the book; he had to verify it in the higher worlds of cosmic consciousness before he could accept it, accept the book; he always studied himself thoroughly with his consciousness.

They had objective reasoning; their reasoning was based on the different processes of their consciousness.

Today things are different: today people read mechanically, automatically. If we observe people reading the newspapers we are amazed, they seem mechanical entities; it is the same is with books, the same with everything… that is why the reasoning of these people is merely subjective. When the "intellectual animal" stopped fulfilling its Being-Partkdolg-Duty, it degenerated.

But let's go a little further. After the intellectual center we have the center of emotions; this emotional center is very fundamental. Unfortunately, people are not aware of their emotions. Observe the crowds in a bullring, the aberrations they commit: women taking off their underwear, throwing it at the bullfighters; barbarities... anyway, what does that indicate? They are carried away by violent emotions, they have no control over their emotions.

The inhabitants of Lemuria, as they knew how to fulfill the Being-Partkdolg-Duty, were aware of their emotions, they never accepted unconscious emotions.

Now, as for the center of the movement, we already know that it is related to our acts, customs, attitudes, etc. The inhabitants of Lemuria were aware of their actions, they could modify them at will; they did not accept automatic, unconscious acts and knew how to fulfill their cosmic duty.

As for the instinctive center, they were aware of their instincts (there are many instincts in us), and those people who knew how to fulfill the cosmic duty; they did not let themselves be carried away in a mechanistic manner by their instincts, they became aware of everything.

And finally, we have the fifth center: the sexual center. They were aware of the activities of sex, they did not commit the foolishness of extracting the sacred sperm from their organism, rather, they transmuted it to take advantage of the sexual hydrogen Si-12.

Such hydrogen was passed to a higher octave and developed within the notes do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si; then it crystallized in the splendid form of the astral body, the astral body was created.

Taking the sexual hydrogen Si-12 to a second octave of a higher type, then the body of the mind appears, it comes to crystallize with the same musical notes.

And taking it to a third octave of higher order, the body of the conscious will appears; crystallizes with the notes do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si...

There is no need to sing them; they didn't need to sing them. Those sounds are perpetuated during the same transmutation by themselves, without being provoked.

Thus, they crystallized their superior existential vehicles, created them, then received in their intimate nature, the soul principle, the causal soul or the human soul and became human beings.

But when the abominable kundabuffer organ was developed in the human species, everything changed: a disorder was established in the psyche, an anomaly. After that organ disappeared, the bad consequences of that organ remained in our nature: the very crystallizations of all our errors, of all the bad consequences of such organ.

Thus, it is obvious that the essence, the psychic principle, was bottled up within the bad consequences of that abominable kundabuffer organ...

An Instructor's Elaboration on the Lecture

Quotes from scriptures with commentary by a gnostic instructor, as an elaboration on the lecture by Samael Aun Weor.

Tantric alchemical elucidations of the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil regarding:

  • the trinity of Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור
  • the duality of Esh אש (fire-air), the trinity of Mayim מים (water)
  • the trinity of the letters Aleph א, Shin ש and Mem מים

Genesis states:

And Elohim said, may it (יהוה) be as lights in the firmament of the heavens (השמים) to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

The Zohar states:

"Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens (השמים)" - Genesis 1: 14

Meaning, let (יהוה) the (four) living souls (Latin: animas) called Chaioth חיות (living creatures or beings, namely: John, Mark, Matthew and Luke, that are: the eagle, the winged lion, the angel and the winged bull, respectively) be (Chaioth HaKadosh חיות הקדש) in the region called the firmament of the heavens (of Yetzirah, Briah and Atziluth). Above and beyond them, however, there is another heaven as it is written:

"And the likeness of the firmament above the heads of the (Chaioth חיות) living creatures was as the color of the abysmal crystal" - Ezekiel 1: 22

The primordial essence of Ain אין, the nothingness, is before all things. In its abstract and eternal nature and condition it is incomprehensible, and as an object of the understanding, according to the Zohar, it is Ain אין, the nothingness, which means, Ain אין, is not matter or energy but something, the mystery of mysteries; but it took form as it called forth them all.

tree of life ain soph aur

This Abyss was the higher firmament (the Ain אין, the nothingness) of the heavens (beyond the Ain Soph: Atziluth, Briah and Yetzirah) whose glory and magnificent splendor (Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור)—is like that of the starry mist of the Milky Way, which includes within its dim and remote recesses innumerable and countless galaxies of ineffable brilliancy and beauty—dawned upon the prophet's vision. Behold, the Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור is a universe of (uncreated) light and love, hidden and concealed from mortal gaze, like the thought of the Divine Mind; ineffable, transcending all human comprehension and powers of conception. As humans (better said, humanoids) have never been able to the divine and understand the nature of thought, much less can they gauge the thoughts of the Ain Soph אין סוף (the Infinite, which is immersed within a mighty dark ocean (the Ain אין) in which all thoughts are drowned) the Infinite and Boundless One (Ain Soph אין סוף), the concealed of all concealments, without beginning and without end, the great invisible center and fount of all life and motion existent in worlds known and unknown, careering in their mighty orbits in the fathomless abysses of (Ain אין, the nothingness) space, the Great Being, the smallest portion of whose glory and might and majesty is reflected and seen in (the Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור  or) the (absolute) sun and the moon (that represent all moons of past cosmic days) of all the splendid galaxies of stars and constellations, all glittering and flashing in a midnight (dark) sky, and in the mystic music of the spheres are forever singing as they shine: "The hand (Iod יד of Ain אין) that made us is divine."

In the present world of shadows and uncertainties, humans must have wandered and lived ignorant, uninstructed and unenlightened, unable to acquire the faintest glimmer or notion of the mind and nature of (AElohim אאלהים) the Divine Being but only for the intermediation of (the Vav ו and expressed by) the Logos or Word (through the mouth or the Peh פ) that (emerges from the Ouroboros, the Samech ס or Soph סוף, the Ain Soph אין סוף), operating through the sephiroth Kether (crown) produced the letters of the alphabet which, in their forms, simple and multiplex, are symbols of spiritual ideas by means of which we obtain conceptions, though inadequate, defective and incomplete, of That (absolute abstract space) within where we live and move and have our being." - Zohar


“The (upper right Iod י above the Vav ו of the) letter Aleph א symbolizes (the Iod י and the Hei ה of HaShamayim השמים, the waters of heaven, or cerebrospinal fluid of El HaYam אל-הים, Kether-Neptune, and the Esh אש, fire-air of Geburah in Aries, the head, Rosh ראש) the beginning, Berashith בראשית (or covenant of fire, Brith-esh ברית-אש, in HaShamayim השמים, the heavens of male, Ish איש and female, Ishah אשה).

The lower left Iod י underneath the Vav ו of the letter Aleph א symbolizes the Iod י of HaMayim המים in Malkuth (the final Hei ה of יהוה) and the lower waters of the Earth or the genital fluids of ElahYam אלה-ים, in Yesod-sex, and the fiery waters of Geburah in Scorpio, the genitalia at) the end (of the Vav ו, the spine and the final Hei ה of VaHaAretz והארץ, our physicalities of male, Ish איש and female, Ishah אשה). This is why it is written:

“And (the Sea-Goddess ElahYam) אלה-ים said: Let HaMayim המים, the waters (or the genital fluids of male, Ish איש and female, Ishah אשה physicalities), which are under their (cerebrospinal fluids or under their) heavens, (HaShamayim השמים), be gathered together unto one place (their alchemical sexual act) and let the dry land (solar bodies) appear (from their sulfured mercury, that is the mixture of their soul of mercury, the outcome of their transmuted Spermatozoid and Ovum): and it was so.” – Genesis 1: 9

“Throughout the universe, all classes of beings are impressed with Aleph א’s signature, both those in heaven and those on earth. Though it includes many forms, yet they are but one full letter Aleph א. By the higher part of it is symbolized (by the brain, vehicle of) the divine mind and thought, as also the upper firmament of the spiritual world (the trinity of the heavens HaShamayim השמים, namely, Kether, Chokmah, Binah, represented in the letters Shin ש). Beneath it and in the middle of Aleph א is the letter Vav, the numerical value of which is six (Sheeth שית in Aramaic), denoting the six degrees (or sephiroth: Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod and Yesod) between the Supreme Mind (Kether, Chokmah, Binah) and the firmament (the Vav, the spine or womb of Tiphereth, the human soul) above the Chaioth, or "the hidden living beings (John, Mark, Matthew and Luke, namely: the eagle, the winged lion, the angel and the winged bull, respectively)."

Three Kingdoms

The light emanating from (the trinity of Shin ש, fire within the Iod י of the waters, HaMayim המים of HaShamayim השמים) the Divine (Shin ש of Kether, Chokmah, Binah) are expressed in the word "Berashith בראשית," of which the first part, bra ברא, contains the initial letters of the name Abraham אברהם, to which scripture refers: 

"And Iod-Havah יהוה appeared unto him (Chesed) in the plains of (Aleph א or) ממרא Mamre (that is, the fiery waters of the head מים ראש Mayim Rosh): and he sat in the tent door (of the sephirah Daath דעת) in the heat (of esh אש, fire) of the day." - Genesis 18: 1

The esoteric meaning of which is as follows: When Abraham (Chesed) sat at the door of his tent; that is, at the gate (of the sephirah Daath דעת) separating the higher (or upper right Iod י of the letter Aleph א, that represent the trinity or Triamatzikamno, represented in the sephiroth: Kether, Chokmah, Binah) and the (letter Vav (six) or Sheeth שית in Aramaic) lower world (represented by the sephiroth Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod and Yesod; since Malkuth is) symbolized by the left lower Iod י of the letter Aleph א. He (Chesed) felt the great heat of the day (the great heat of Esh אש (fire) of his crown chakra, the Sahasrara); that is, he became mentally and spiritually enlightened by the divine light of (his crown chakra, the Sahasrara) the First Logos (Kether כתר, crown).” – Zohar

“Perfumes and sandals are the symbols of Yesod. We must study the two trees of Eden: the Tree of the Science of Good and Evil, and the Tree of Life (the ten Sephiroth). Both trees even share their roots.” – Samael Aun Weor

The roots of the two trees of Eden are rooted in the sacrum bone, Etzem Haetzah עצם העצה in Hebrew.

Take note of the kabbalistic words with Otz עץ:

  • Otz Chayim עץ חיים: Tree of Life
  • Otz Daath עץ דעת: Tree of Knowledge
  • Bones Atzamoth עצמות: Otz עצ (tree), Maveth מות (death)
  • Trees or wood Atzim עצים: Otz עצ (tree), Yam ים (water)

This is why it is written:

"And it came to pass after these things, that the Goddess and the Elohim (of Geburah) did test (the Ath את of) Abraham (האלה והאלהים נסה את־אברהם), and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am (in Chesed with Elohim and the Schekinah שכינה). Take now (the Ath את of) thy son, (the Ath את of) thine only son Isaac יצחק, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah (Geburah); and offer it there for a burnt offering upon (the canopy of Otz HaDaath עצ הדעת) one of the mountains which I will tell thee of." - Genesis 22: 1, 2

The Zohar continues:

“And they (Abraham and Isaac or Atman Buddhi) came to (Daath דעת, the canopy of the tree of knowledge עצ הדעת) the place (of El HaMaqom Asher אל המקום אשר) which the Elohim האלֹהים (from Geburah) had told him of; and Abraham (Chesed) built the altar there (in Daath), and laid the wood (העצים) in order, and bound Isaac his son (to Geburah, Buddhi), and laid him (Isaac) on the altar upon the wood (לעצים).” – Genesis 22: 9

What is written formerly, "And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and said, 'My father...'" – Genesis 22: 7)

This has already been explained. But why did Abraham not reply to Isaac at all? It is because Abraham ceased to partake mercy (Chesed) as a father upon his son. Instead, the attribute of Geburah came upon Isaac, this is the reason why he did not answer him the first time. Thus, it is written, "Here I am (in Chesed), my son." "Here I am (in Chesed)," as if to say, the Mercy (Chesed) has gone and changed into Judgment (Geburah).

The phrase, "And Abraham said," rather than "And his father said." is written because he was no longer like a father but (Geburah) had become an adversary (to Chesed). Of the verse, "Elohim (Gibor גיבור) will provide himself a ram," It should have been written, 'will provide us' and not "Himself." and he replies that he said to him, the Elohim (from Geburah) will provide (from Aries, the ram) for His own needs at the appropriate time. Now, my son (is in Geburah), and not the ram (of Aries), is the offering. Immediately, it is written, "They went both of them (Chesed and Geburah or Atman Budhi) together," this means that Isaac (Geburah) followed the will of (Chesed) his father (in the first initiation of fire).” – Zohar

Chesed subtracting alchemically his Ath את or Schekinah שכינה and transfer it to Geburah.

“And Abraham sent forth (Ath את or Schekinah שכינה from) his (right) hand (in Yesod, sex) and took the knife (that usually Cain use for slaughtering Abel, the son of the Schekinah שכינה) to slay (better said: to remove his Ath את or Schekinah שכינה from) his son. And the angel (Samael סמאל in Scorpio) of Iod-Havah יהוה called unto him out of the heavens (of Geburah), and said, (the Ath את or Schekinah שכינה of) Abraham (from Chesed is now), Abraham (‘s Ath את or Schekinah שכינה in Geburah): and he said, Here am I (that is, my Ath את or Schekinah שכינה is now in Geburah). And he (Samael) said, Lay not thine hand (from Scorpio be) upon the lad, neither do thou anything unto him (in Geburah): for now I know that thou fears, Yirah Elohim ירא אלהים (in Geburah), seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me (Samael). And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him (behind his head) a ram (from Aries, zodiacal house of Samael) caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram and offered him (the Lamb of Elohim from Geburah) up for a burnt offering (in Daath) in the stead of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place Iod-Havah Awe Asher יהוה יראה אשר: as it is said to this day, In the mount of (Geburah) Iod-Havah יהוה it (the Asher אשר of יהוה) shall be seen (as Awe, Yirah יראה).” – Genesis 22: 10-14

“The fear (יראת Irath) of (Geburah, which is the Iod י of Eve הוה, the Schekinah שכינה, the Iod י of) Iod-Havah יהוה (the Iod י in Malkuth) is the beginning of wisdom” – Psalm 111: 10

Tree of Life

“And the angel (Samael סמאל) of Iod-Havah יהוה called unto Abraham out of the heavens (of Geburah) the second time, And said: By myself have I sworn, saith Iod-Havah יהוה, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will (descend and in Scorpio) multiply thy seed as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and (in Scorpio) thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies (since I am Samael, the Elohim of wars); And in (Scorpio) thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice (Logos).” – Genesis 22: 15-18

Explanation: It is written:

“For Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים (Binah) had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not Adam אדם to till HaAdamah האדמה, the ground.” – Genesis 2: 5

The esoteric meaning of this is…. because there was no Moses (causal body in Tiphereth) to make intercession with the divine Schekinah, and therefore is it written, "There was no Adam to till the ground." - Zohar

In Kabbalah the bones Atzamoth עצמות are attributed to Chesed and the flesh, Basar בשר, to Geburah, while the Dam דם, the blood that the heart distributes to the flesh, Basar בשר, is attributed to Tiphereth. Forty drops of Dam דם, blood descends from the heart into the genitalia and becomes one drop of sexual fluid in both genres. This is the Od אד in Scorpio. As it is written:

“But (from Scorpio) there went up an Ad אד, mist from the earth and (through the Vav ו, the spine) launched Ath את (the Schekinah שכינה) to the whole face of (Aries in) HaAdamah האדמה, the ground (our physicality).” – Genesis 2: 6

“And a mist (אד) went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground' (Genesis 2: 6), which refers to the sexual desires experienced by the female (Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה in Malkuth) towards the male (Kether-Binah in the pineal gland).“ - Zohar

Alchemically, the Od אד from Scorpio and the Dam דם, blood from the heart nourishes the word, the canopy of the tree of knowledge, Otz HaDaath עץ הדעת, in the larynx, and forms Adam אדם in the brain; this is why these three sephiroth, namely, Chesed, Geburah and Tiphereth, namely, the Monad, our Being המעצמי, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, constitute our inner trinity. Abraham has to confront Samael in Aries, Isaac has to confront Samael in Geburah, and Jacob has to confront Samael in Scorpio. This is why it is written:

“This struggle is terrible, brain against sex, and sex against brain, and what is even more terrible and more painful, heart against heart. You know this. Our motto is Thelema (willpower)”  - Samael Aun Weor

About the duality, it is written: 

“And Adam אדם said, this is now bone of my bones (Chesed), and flesh of my flesh (Geburah): for this shall be called Ishah אשה Female, for from an Ish איש Male had this been taken.” – Genesis 2: 23

The Esh אש (fire) from Samael-Geburah descends through Tiphereth as Dam דם (the blood) into the genitalia and become the Od אד (mist) of Scorpio, the genitalia, and waters the whole face of (Aries in) HaAdamah האדמה (the ground), our physicality.

Zohar continues:

“The light of the Second Logos (Chokmah) was beheld by Isaac (in Geburah) when, in the cool of the evening and the sun (Ra רא, from the head) was going down (through Binah, Geburah, Hod into Yesod), he prayed for the coming of this light (of Chokmah into Scorpio), as it is written:

"And Isaac went out to meditate in the field שדה (Yesod) at the eventide: and he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the Gimelim גמלים were coming (esoterically: he beheld with his pituitary and pineal eyes, Ayinin עיניו, the letter Gimel גימל descending and carrying the letter Iod י from the waters, Yam ים of Binah, through Geburah and Hod, into the field, Shaddah שדה of Shaddai שדי, Yesod in Scorpio)." - Genesis 24: 63.

It was then that Isaac foresaw the contention that would arise between Jacob (Tiphereth, the human soul) and Esau (Netzach, the mind)." - Zohar

The brain is the physical vehicle of Netzach, the mind. And the Pineal gland is the vehicle of the human soul who works in the heavens of Tiphereth under the guidance of Eloha Va Daath Iod, Hei, Vav, Hei, the Holy Spirit, the Theomertmalogos.

The light of (Shiva) the Third Logos (Binah, that rises as Shakti in the Sushumna from Shaddai שדי, Yesod-Scorpio, is Ath את, the Schekinah שכינה), that proceeds from the other two (Ad אד, mist of Scorpio, the genitalia, of male Ish and female Ishah איש ואשה, right and left columns, Abraham and Isaac), was that seen by Jacob (Tiphereth, willpower), as it is written:

"And as he passed over (the) Pineal פניאל (gland) the sun rose upon him (Jacob-Tiphereth, the human soul), and he halted upon (Scorpio) his thigh (sex)." – Genesis 32: 31

Third Triangle

At eventide he beheld the light (of Aries) called and known as the Netzach נצח of Israel (victory of Israel), and he halted on his thigh (Scorpio, sex), because this light of (Yesod of) sephirothic origin constitutes (in Aries, the forehead Metzach מצח, and in Scorpio) the thigh (or genitalia) in the sephirothic figure. His thigh, not thighs (Hod and Netzach), for as just said, he (Jacob-Tiphereth) beheld the light of (Aries in) Netzach (better said: Metzach, מצח), which is only of the fourth degree (of major mysteries).

For this reason, after Jacob (Tiphereth, the human soul) no one was endowed with the gift of prophecy until the coming of Samuel שמואל (do not confuse Samuel שמואל with Samael סמאל), as scripture states:

"And also, the Netzach נצח, strength or victory of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not (the sinful) Adam (Tiphereth), that he should repent." - 1 Samuel 15: 29

"And he (Samael סמאל) touched (Scorpio) the hollow of his thigh (sex)." – Genesis 32: 25

When (Samael סמאל) the angel of Esau (in Aries, the mind Netzach) who struggled with Jacob saw he could not prevail against him because he (Jacob, Tiphereth) derived his power and strength from the two first sephirothic degrees or emanations; that is, from the supreme light and that called Adam Kadmon (in Aries), the archetypal Adam, he (Samael סמאל) touched (Scorpio) the sinew of his thigh (sex) in which was contained the force (of Geburah also) symbolized by Netzach (better said: Metzach, מצח the forehead or face of Aries, denoting firmness, inflexibility), and from that time as we have observed, prophecy was not found in Israel (Tiphereth) until the coming of Samuel שמואל, when it is said: "The Netzach or strength of (Jacob) Israel is not (from the sinful) Adam (Tiphereth)"; that is to say, comes not from that sephirothic degree called (the sinful) Adam (Tiphereth), but from that named Netzach (symbol of Metzach, מצח, the forehead or face of Aries).

Joshua יהושע (Jesus) received his prophecy from the sephirah Hod הוד (which is shown in his transfiguration) because of his intimate and close association with Moses (the causal body in Tiphereth and Elijah, Elios, the sun in victory, Netzach), as it is written:

"And thou (Tiphereth-Moses) shalt put of thine glory (Hod הוד) upon him (Jesus), that all the congregation of the children (soul archetypes) of Israel may be obedient.” - Numbers. 27: 20

This was the case with David, as he says:

“Let me know the path of life: Seven joys (Initiations of light) make your face; at thy right (of your face or your mind) is Netzach נצח (better said: forehead, Metzach, מצח).” - Psalm 16: 11" - Zohar
