The “Jera” Rune According to Glorian Publishing

In another class given on the Glorian Publishing website, the following information is given by one of Samael Aun Weor’s Students, which we have attempted to summarize and paraphrase:

The Jera Rune or ‘Year’ is related with the Solar Harvest.

Jera is the symbol of the Duality within the Trinity. If we carefully observe the sign of the Jera Rune, we see that in the middle of its two sickles, symbol of the duality, we find the Sig Rune, which is formed by three lines. Sig is the Rune of Fire.

The Sig in the Jera Rune is an invisible fire. Therefore, when we study the Jera Rune, related with harvesting, we have to understand that Sig , the Solar Fire, is hidden in it. Thus, the Jera Rune very clearly shows three fiery forces; one is hidden, and two are shown. We always have to use our intuition, in order to see these things.

The place of duality; this duality is hidden within the Abstract Space. That is why all of those archetypes that formed the letters of the Futharkh, or Runic Alphabet, are coming from the unknowable, which is the dual place of the Causal Logos. This is why we have to use our imagination, our intuition, in order to see other things that are hidden … things which can only be seen with our heart.

In Hebrew the word תורה Torah (Law), comes from the root ירה Jerah (teach, instruct, throw, show, flow, etc.):

And יהוה said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee [two] tables of stone, and a תורה Torah (Law), and commandments which I have written [with Sig ]; that thou mayest “teach” ירה Jerah them.
– Exodus 24: 12

It is clear and evident that the trunks of the tablets of the Law, upon which the prophet Moses wisely wrote, by command of Jehovah, the Ten Commandments, are nothing other than a double Runic Lance, whose phallic significance has been widely documented.
– Mystery of the Golden Blossom by Samael Aun Weor

When the duality of the Divinity or the Seity is manifested in the Universe, we have the Primordial: Yang (the manifestation of the masculinity or the positive force of the duality) and Yin (which is the manifestation of the femininity). These are the two polarities that we see in the Jera Rune.

Sometimes we say Seity, with an S, instead of Deity with a D. Seity begins with the letter S, which is the symbol of the Fire. Seity is that which abides in the place of duality, the Absolute, the place where we find the duality of the Divinity or the Seity.

The other symbol of we find is the Yin-Yang, or better said in this case, the three forces of Taoism, which in English are known as Jing, Qi, and Shen.

These relate to this other sign that we see in the center of the symbolic wheel of Dharma in Tibetan mythology, in which we find the Yin-Yang, but as three forces which are shown in the center. We are going to explain how these three modes of energy, called Jing, Qi, and Shen, are related with the Jera Rune.

The Dharma wheel of Tibetan philosophy has in its center these three modes of energy manifest through the duality, commonly called Yin-Yang.

We find these forces in Taoism and Buddhism, because they are universal forces. In relation with these energies, Taoism as Alchemy is a very profound religion to study.

Likewise, in Kabbalah, we also find these forces, and in different lectures we always name them as Kether, Chokmah, and Binah, the three primary forces of the universe that express themselves as duality, yet that duality is in itself the trinity. This is what we are going to explain today, in relation with this lecture.

In Taoism, they sometimes use the symbolism of the Dragon and the Tiger to represent Yin & Yang. Master Samael Aun Weor stated in Ch. 11 of his book Esoteric Course of Kabbalah :

Chinese Alchemy

Heaven is masculine, Yang and its element is fire. The Earth is feminine, Yin and its element is water. In the TAOIST doctrine, we find White Tantrism.

The Yin-Yang, the Dragon and the Tiger are the axis of Taoism. According to Taoist interpretation, the Yin-Yang is the outcome of T’AI CHI, the materia prima of the universe and creation emerges from the sexual union of this pair of opposites.

MAITHUNA (Sexual Magic) exists within the White Tantrism of India and Tibet. THE WHITE TANTRISM OF BUDDHISM, CHINESE TAOISM AND THE LEGITIMATE TIBETAN YOGAS all practice the Arcanum A.Z.F.

As the Master explains, Yin-Yang are the masculine and feminine forces, Heaven and Earth. Bear in mind, that when we talk about Yin-Yang, they imply another third force that is not visually shown in the symbol, since in order for the masculine and feminine forces to be active, another invisible force has to be present.

This is why we state that the Jera Rune shows an invisible force, which is the Sig Rune that appears invisible in between the Jera glyph. This is what we have to understand, because without the “S” (the fire), nobody can exist, nothing can exist.

Alchemy and the Book of Genesis

In the western world, when we go into Kabbalah and Alchemy, we have to go into the Book of Genesis. This is because the book of Genesis hides the meaning of the duality, within the trinity. This mystery is hidden in the first verse of the book of Genesis:

“In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.”

Master Samael states that the Heaven is Yang and the Earth is Yin.

Now, if we go into the Hebrew alphabet and the Hebrew words related with this first statement of the book of Genesis, then we read:

בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ

Berashith Bera Elohim At HaSchamayim Veh At HaAretz

In the beginning [Berashith ] created God [Bera Elohim ]
      the Heavens [At HaSchamayim ] and the Earth [Veh At HaAretz ]

Who created Elohim ? This is related to the very beginning of the universe, so let’s understand: it is the “Ain Soph ” whose “Aur ” (light) created the Elohim .

The Ain Soph is the origin of “S”, the Aur (light) of Cosmic Days (sunrises) and Cosmic Nights (sunsets). Behold here, the Jera Rune, and the Solar Harvest.

Why does the Cosmic Day exist? It exists because there is a need for Solar Harvesting in the universe. When does the opposite of the Jera Rune exist (which is the Mahapralaya, the Cosmic Night)? It exists when the solar harvesting has been completed.

What is it to perform a Solar Harvest? It is to collect the good and the bad: the bad to the left and the good to the right.

In a common harvesting, after collecting the good, the harvesters burn the leftovers. Here we can see the fire in activity, burning the bad. Now, when the burning is complete, when the field (the universe) is already clean. At that time, we might say: “Oh well, the fire did what it had to do and therefore it is gone.” Wrong! The fire is still there.

What happens is that in the universe we can only see the fire in activity, but we cannot see it when it is not in activity.

When we see fire, when we see light, it is the solar fire in activity. Yet, the fire that is not active is still burning; it is still there. That is what is called darkness, in Kabbalah. That is the glyph of the Sig Rune, the “S” in between the two sickles, which form the duality in the Jera Rune.

That “S” is blank because it is the invisible or black fire. Have you ever heard about the black fire? It is stated that nobody sees that fire. Only the inhabitants of the Absolute, the Paramarthasatyas, can see that black fire.

In this part of the universe, we can only see the fire that is active, that is burning, shining, in matter, because fire and light go together. This is precisely what we have to understand and comprehend when Genesis states, “And darkness was upon the face of the Deep (the Abyss).”

…And what is Elohim ? Elohim is precisely represented in the duality of the Jera Rune.

In Hebrew “ELAH” means Goddess, and the ending “IM” is masculine plural, thus Elohim means Gods and Goddesses, or the male-female duality.

בראשית ברא אלהים

Berashith Bera Elohim

In the beginning created God

“In the beginning created Elohim” … the word “BERA” (which in Hebrew means ‘creation’) also hides the word “BAR,” (which in Aramaic means ‘son’).

If we then take the letter א Aleph from the word BERA and join it to the next word, which is “ELOHIM,” then we read:

בראשית בר אאלהים

BERASHITH BAR AELOHIM

“In the beginning the SON of AELOHIM.”

AELOHIM is that Seity that in Kabbalah is not named. And who is the ‘SON of AELOHIM’? It is the Fire. But, I repeat, it is a black fire. Bear that in mind, because usually, when we think about fire, we always think of the flame which is active in the universe, the flame that is burning something.

But remember, when the fire has burned anything and then is already no longer before our eyes, nonetheless the black fire is still there. It is shining in a ‘black’, or abstract, manner within the Absolute Space.

That is what we call the ‘Son of Aelohim’, that Seity within the Abstract Absolute Space. That Seity exists inside of us; it is the AUR (Light) in the very depth of everything that exists.

-Paraphrase from Runes: Rune Jera on the Glorian (formerly Gnostic Teachings) website

 

The Light, the Darkness and Movement

What is this AUR, this Light? In relation with Kabbalah, it emerges from the duality of the Absolute. AUR expresses creation; AUR is the beginning of creation. That is why it is written:

“In the beginning, created Elohim the Heavens and the Earth.”

The Heavens and the Earth are shown in the duality of the Jera Rune, the Yin-Yang, within the Trinity.

The Jera Rune implies the movement, the forces, within all of the Runes together.

That is why, when we read, “In the beginning created God the Heaven and the Earth. And the earth was without form and void,” we have to imagine the Jera Rune.

But let us read the following verse of the book of Genesis: “And darkness was upon the face of the deep.” (Gen 1:2) The ‘deep’ is the Abyss. The ‘deep’ is that Absolute Abstract Space.

Darkness was hovering on that deep space. That darkness is fire, which is inactive in the universe, but which becomes active in the Absolute Abstract Space. That darkness is only darkness for us, but it is light for the Absolute.

Part of that darkness is what in Kabbalah is called “Ain Soph Aur“. This is what we have to understand when we read, “And darkness (black fire) was upon the face of the deep.”

And then we read: “And the Ruach Elohim moved upon the face of the waters.” (Gen 1:2) In Hebrew, Ruach is Spirit, and also wind or air. Thus, we could say, “And the Air or Spirit of God, or Elohim , (which is above) moved upon the face of the waters (which are the forces of the lower glyph of the Jera Rune).”

“And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light. And Elohim saw the light, that it was good: and Elohim divided the light from the darkness.”
– Genesis 1:3-4

Here, it is very clear that the light we see in the universe, which the Elohim created, comes from the darkness. This is what Master Samael Aun Weor explains:

“Ancient wisdom states that Darkness is in itself Father/Mother,
and Light is its Child.”
– Ch. 51 of Tarot and Kabbalah

All of the manifestations of the Earth (that was without form and void) appear from the darkness, when the light appears. That is to say: “Elohim divided the light from the darkness,” or better said, Elohim took the light from the black fire (darkness).

That is how we have to understand this, because this is something we always repeat: It is said, that black fire (which is not visible in the universe) is what we call Christ, the Cosmic Christ that shines in different levels and that is within us…

-Paraphrase from Runes: Rune Jera on the Glorian (formerly Gnostic Teachings) website

 

The ‘Black Fire/Light’ and the Cosmic Day/Night

At the very depth of our consciousness, we find that black light. We have it. If we close our eyes, in meditation, and we go within, we find that black light.

Yet, we do not have the capacity to see that light, that dark fire, because we need to develop what the Master Samael Aun Weor explained as the ‘Prajnaparamita type of vision’, in which you can see the light as a Paramarthasatya, an inhabitant of the Absolute.

But even before developing that vision, we know that the dark light, that black fire is there. And we see it by means of the activity of the light that comes from that darkness.

Thus, in order to see it, “Elohim said, Let there be light.” (Gen 1:3)  That is precisely the work that we do in Alchemy.

We want to awaken that light, that Sig Rune, which is the Kundalini. When it appears, it comes from the darkness. That is why it is stated that when we practice sexual magic, we have to do it in darkness, because light emerges from that black fire.

The Catholic Church named this Darkness “Lucifer,” as something evil, ignoring that this Darkness is beyond good and evil.

Lucifer means, carrier of light. “Luci” is light; “fer” is fire, ferry. Lucifer is the fire that carries the light, but that is not the fire that we see tri-dimensionally, it is INRI, the black fire. Do you understand this?

Lucifer is black fire; this is why Lucifer is represented as something black, because the light comes from the darkness; that black fire is inside and not outside of us.

We must bear all of this in mind in order to comprehend this marvelous symbol of the Jera Rune, which is also symbolized by the Yin-Yang.

“And God called the light, Day.”
– Genesis 1:5
This is the Cosmic Day, in the macrocosmic manner, and the activity of that light is called Maha-manvantara in Sanskrit.

“And the darkness, was called Night.”
– Genesis 1:5
Because the darkness corresponds to that invisible or black fire which is not active in the universe, which is in repose, ‘cold’. That is what we call night, or better said, the Maha-pralaya in Sanskrit.

Do you see how everything is hidden in the book of Genesis, in relation with the duality of the Jera Rune? Day = cosmic day; Night = cosmic night…

What is shown here in a Macrocosmic manner has to be recreated within us, in a Microcosmic manner.

If we think that the Absolute is out there, we are wrong. The Absolute is within us; it is the abstract space. When we inquire into our physicality, into our psyche, into our Spirit, beyond them is space; beyond matter in different densities there is always space. That space is called the ‘abstract space’. Each one of us has their own particular part of that space, which is called the Ain Soph.

AIN is the head, the head of the universe, because AIN is the origin of everything.

The AIN SOPH, that creates the Elohim within her belly, in order for them to appear in this multidimensional universe.

Those Elohim are the Gods and Goddesses, that we have within, that we need to self-realize.

-Paraphrase from Runes: Rune Jera on the Glorian (formerly Gnostic Teachings) website

 

Taoism, Alchemy and the Trinity of Jing-Qi-Shen

Let us now go into this Taoist trinity we are talking about: Jing, Qi, and Shen. The Tao manifests its power through the three Treasures of the Light.

The Treasury of the Light is called ‘Barbelos’ in the Pistis Sophia.

Let me tell you that the manifested Light of that Treasury is the Three Primary Forces. That is why, in Taoism, they say there are three Treasures of the Light, or three modes of energy— Jing, Qi, and Shen —which are the three principles of the universe.

These three Treasures of the Light manifest in the heavens, in the earth, and in the human being. Each of them contains their own three Treasures of the Light.

The three treasures of Heaven are the Sun, the Moon, and the stars.

The three treasures of the earth, are Air, Water and Fire.

Now, the three treasures in the human being are the Intellectual Brain, the Emotional Brain and the Motor-Instinctual-Sexual Brain. So these three modes of energy (Jing, Qi, Shen) are related to our Three Brains.

In Christianity these three forces are called, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We have often stated that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of Christianity are not persons; they are forces. In Taoism, these forces are presented beautifully. In Kabbalah it is Kether, Chokmah, and Binah, related with the Holy Trinity.

In Gnostic Esotericism, this Trinity is called the Triamazikamno Law (the Law of Three), the law that creates.

The Three Primary Forces express themselves in the whole universe, not just in the physical body. Shen, Qi and Jing, as we can see them, manifest in the world of Atziluth (archetypes), the world of Briah (creation), and the world of Yetzirah (formation), because these three modes of energy are the base of life, in different densities. They are the three primary forces that we have to work with, within the duality.

Jing is essence-energy and is related with the Kidneys in our physicality. Jing creates the ovum and the sperm, masculine/feminine.

As energy, that Jing rises, transformed as Qi energy; thus Qi energy rises from Jing, the essence-energy up to the brain, thanks to the two cords that we have (Ida and Pingala, as they are called in Sanskrit). These are Yin-Yang, the two witnesses of Revelation.

But we have to understand that, thanks to the union of these two polarities that originate from the Jing (essence-energy, our sexual matter), another third force, which is Shen, Spirit, rises through Sushumna in the spinal medulla. This is how we can see the three modes of energy in our physiology.

Here we are talking about the sublimation of those forces within our physicality, psychology, and spirituality. Yet, we have to understand that these three modes of energy descend from Heaven as well, as we have explained.

Master Samael Aun Weor explains them as the three modes of Akashic force, or the three breaths of Akasha, that enter into our nostrils and descend through the three nervous systems, or better said, the three channels called Sushumna, Ida, and Pingala.

So the Jera Rune, is really a Rune of Alchemy. It is very profound.

The Law of Three, that creates, is Kabbalistically expressed in the abstract manner and in the concrete manner in the first verse of the Book of Genesis.

But remember that the book of Genesis talks about seven days. People used to make the mistake of thinking that these seven days of Genesis are seven days of 24 tri-dimensional hours, as the physical time that we have. Those who think that way do not understand the cryptic manner in which the Book of Genesis was written.

We have to understand and comprehend that the seven days are related with the Law of the Heptaparaparshinokh (the Law of Seven), the law that organizes.

When we talk about creation or about harvesting, we have to understand the Law of Seven is the law that organizes it. This Law of Seven is marvelously shown, as we always say, as the harvesting of the Seven Suns.

-Paraphrase from Runes: Rune Jera on the Glorian (formerly Gnostic Teachings) website

 

Alchemy and the Solar Harvest

Remember that, in the lecture “The End of Kali Yuga” the Master Samael Aun Weor talked about the Seven Suns.

If you remember the seven spirits before the throne of God that are described in the Book of Revelation, we stated that they are named:

1. Gabriel (the Moon),
2. Raphael (Mercury),
3. Uriel (Venus),
4. Michael (the Sun),
5. Samael (Mars—the fifth),
6. Zachariel (Jupiter),
7. and Orifiel (Saturn).

These are the Seven Spirits, or Seven Cosmocreators.

Master Samael explains what is shown in relation with the harvesting, namely:

1. the Children of the First Sun (the “Polar” Race) were devoured by wisdom, by tigers (symbol of the fire, or wisdom). If we understand Alchemy, we will comprehend that the fire burned them completely, and they became one with the tiger, with the fire, or with the dark fire.

2. The Children of the Second Sun (the “Hyperborean” Race) were destroyed by great hurricanes and became transformed into apes. Some of them degenerated.

3. The Children of the Third Sun (the “Lemurian” Race) were destroyed by a rain of fire, and they transformed into birds.

4. Thereafter, the “Atlantean” Root Race (which existed before this present Root Race) was devoured by the waters and transformed into fish. So when we study the Aztec calendar in relation with the harvesting of these four previous Root Races, it is very clear in symbols.

5. But they do not say anything about us, the Fifth Sun’s harvesting (the “Aryan” Race). Into what are we going to be transformed? Into what symbolic animal are we going to be transformed? However, they do say that the Children of the Fifth Sun will be destroyed by earthquakes and fire, which is being fulfilled. That fire is the fire of volcanoes.

Remember that it is stated that Samael is the king of volcanoes and earthquakes.

Now, the bible talks about the symbolic animal into which our present Root Race is going to be transformed. Master Jesus said:

When the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

Then shall the King say to them on his right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was hungered, and you gave me meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in: Naked, and you clothed me: I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me.

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungered, and fed you? Or thirsty, and gave you drink? When did we see you a stranger, and took you in? Or naked, and clothed you? Or when did we see you sick, or in prison, and came to you?

And the King shall answer and say to them, Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me.

Then shall he say also to them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was hungered, and you gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and you took me not in: naked, and you clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and you visited me not.

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungered, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto you?

Then shall he answer them, saying, Truly I say to you, Inasmuch as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
– Matthew 25: 31-46

Here we find again the duality of the Jera Rune; the harvesting of this Fifth Root Race will be goats and sheep.

-Paraphrase from Runes: Rune Jera on the Glorian (formerly Gnostic Teachings) website

 

Aries, the Head and Goats or Sheep

Now, if we delve into the symbol of the Ram, or sheep, we discover that it relates to the sign of Aries. Astrologically, Aries is related with the head… This is because the Sun of Aries rules all of the head and it is ruled by Samael, whose symbol is the Ram, the Lamb, the sheep.

In order for our head to shine we have to transmute the sexual energy with the mysteries of Taoism, Alchemy, Yin-Yang, and the three modes of energy, or treasures of the light. However, if we do not do that, then we will become goats.

We have seen that the symbol of the goat is the sexual energy utilized in the wrong manner. The goat is something that we have to transform, because all of us present here, without exception, are goats. We are goats, so we have to transform ourselves into sheep. The goat, like all animals, is a fornicator.

We are the Children of the Fifth Sun. Right now, we are in the dilemma of “to be or not to be.” Master Samael Aun Weor (who rules the Fifth Sun) came and gave the knowledge for us, so that we can be transformed into sheep, that is, if we want to belong to the harvest of the Fifth Sun.

That which is bad (the goats) will be thrown into the Abyss so that the everlasting fire of Klipoth will cleanse them. There, the fire of their own passions will burn them, as well as the atomic fire of the Earth.

Remember that in the very center of the Earth the ego is incinerated, cremated. Behold the dilemma: whether we are to be cremated in the devolving way, or in the Alchemical, Initiatic way.

This is why we are teaching Gnosis, in order for us to become sheep. Remember the parable of the sheep and goats, which states that Jesus said to the sheep on the right:

Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
– Matthew 25: 34

And I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
– Matthew 8: 11

And to the goats on the left Jesus said:

But the Children of the kingdom [Malkuth] shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
– Matthew 8: 12

Understand, this ‘outer darkness’ (referred to in the verse) is not the same darkness as the ‘black fire’. That ‘outer darkness’ is the darkness of the Abyss.

There are many types of darkness. Outer darkness is the darkness of the abyss that is OUT of the kingdom of heaven. In the Absolute we find the ‘black fire’, which relates to the darkness we spoke of in the beginning, which is Divine.

The Aztec calendar states that in the epoch of the Children of the Fifth Sun, the Gods will die, and indeed, the Gods are dead in this Root Race. Many bodhisattvas of great Gods and Angels fell in this epoch. But it is written that in the Sixth Root Race, which will emerge after the destruction of this Fifth Root Race, the Gods will resurrect.

However, the Gods will not resurrect merely as a gift, or just because someone states it, no! The Gods will resurrect if their bodhisattvas annihilate their ego, and shine again within themselves.

There are many bodhisattvas that are fallen, thus they have to rise again and shine in order to resurrect. Remember that there are many types of resurrection. The Gods have to resurrect.

If you are entering into this path, your God will resurrect within you. That is precisely the mystery of the Jera Rune, because it means Solar Harvesting.

In the epoch of the Seventh Sun, everything will be Divine. This is how we understand the symbol of this Jera Rune, in relation with Taoism, Christianity, and the Kabbalah.

-Paraphrase from Runes: Rune Jera on the Glorian (formerly Gnostic Teachings) website

 

The Universe and the Temple of God

Remember that we stated that there are two main laws in relation with the universe: the Law of Three and the Law of Seven.

The first is the Law of Three, which is the Law of the Triamazikamno, related with Kether, Chokmah, and Binah, and also with Daath. This is because that mysterious Sephirah Daath, which is below the first triangle, hides the mystery of the duality within the trinity, as we have stated in previous lectures.

In Daath, there is a trinity within the duality, and this is precisely what we have to understand. One thing is the trinity in the first triangle, and another thing is the trinity in Daath, which expresses itself through the duality.

In other words, the Jera Rune really belongs to Daath, which is the duality, Father/Mother, the Elohim manifesting its power of creation thanks to the force which is always hidden, which is the fire, the “S”, the Sig Rune, between the two sickles, symbols of the Duality of Jera .

Below Daath, we find the other seven Sephiroth, which are related to the Law of Seven, the Heptaparaparshinokh, the law which organizes.

Let us now go down into our physicality, in order to understand how that which is done in the Macrocosmos has to be performed in the Microcosmos.

It is stated in many parts of the Bible that the physical body is the Temple of God. Malkuth is the Temple of God.

Paul of Tarsus states in the Bible that, our physical body is a temple of the living God. Many people that hear this, or read this, do not understand in which way is God within us. Let us study this.

In many ancient cultures, the word for wind, air, breath and Spirit are the same. This is because the Spirit of God enters through the nostrils. Remember what is written:

And Iod-Havah Elohim formed Adam of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul.
– Genesis 2: 7

This is how we have to understand this: Spirit enters into our physicality mainly through the nostrils, in order for us to be alive. So when we talk about the respiratory system, we are talking about Kether, which is abstract, like the air (Aleph ).

When we talk about the air, the oxygen, related with the lungs, we talk about the heart as well. Remember that the heart is between the lungs, and the heart is the organ that deals with the blood. When we talk about the blood, we are talking about Qi.

Qi is related with the Lungs and Shen is related to the Heart. While Jing is related with the Kidneys.

That Jing becomes Semen, sexual matter. Which is why, in Taoism, it is advised not to ejaculate the semen, but to retain it. This is because if we retain the Jing, eventually it will be transformed into Qi and then into Shen. Thus we will be filled with energy.

This is why, when we transmute our substance (our Jing) into Qi, we say that “The Soul of the Mercury” which rises through Ida and Pingala (the two witnesses of Revelation) in Kabbalah and Alchemy.

Thus, Qi comes from our own Jing when we transmute it. Eventually this Qi will generate Shen.

The Holy Spirit is Shen within Jing, the creative energy. The Holy Spirit is the mystery of the duality. And if we want to find the duality expressed physically in this three-dimensional world, then we must seek it in man & woman.

When they unite, sexually speaking, then we have the third force (Shen), which is uniting the Yin-Yang. Remember that when we see Yin-Yang, there is a third force hidden there, which is putting them in movement. We could also say that when the man and the woman, Yin-Yang, are in the sexual act, there is a movement of Shen in our Jing. That is sexual energy, the Holy Shen, the Holy Spirit.

-Paraphrase from Runes: Rune Jera on the Glorian (formerly Gnostic Teachings) website

 

The Tree of Life and the Correspondences in the Physical Organism

Remember, the simple way to comprehend the trinity is to take every triangle of the tree of life and place it on our three brains. Namely: our head (the intellectual brain); our heart (the emotional brain); and our sexual organs (the Holy Spirit, the motor-instinctual-sexual brain). This is how we have to place each triangle.

Now do you see what the fire in the water, wine, and blood is? We have talked to you already about how the ‘water’ descends to the sexual organs, and then has to be sublimated in order to become ‘wine’, the wine of the Transubstantiation, the blood of the Lord.

Jesus,—that is Aberamentho,—said unto his disciples, […]

“And the fire, the water and the wine are for the purification of all the sins of the world.

The blood on the other hand was for a sign unto me because of the human body which I received in the region of Barbelo, the great power of the invisible God.

The breath on the other hand advances towards all souls and leads them unto the region of the Light.”
– Pistis Sophia, Chapter 141

This is why, when we perform the Transubstantiation, we are working with the fire in the triangle of Chesed (water), Geburah (wine), and Tiphereth (blood) in our heart. This is the marvelous way of the Transubstantiation. However, we need a lot of energy (fire) in order to perform this work; we need milk. That milk is related with our endocrine system.

So how do these substances (milk, the water, the wine and blood), relate to each other? How do they work together?

Well, if we study the relationships of all those systems in the physical body, then we will see the relation.

The blood, the heart in the center, deals with the circulatory system, the immune system, the endocrine system, the reproductive system, the skeletal system, the muscular system. You see, the blood relates to Tiphereth which is the one that is in charge of the work of the heart, because the heart deals with all of those forces.

The food that we eat transforms into energy that the heart takes and purifies through the lungs. The liquid or fluid related with the reproductive system is called olive oil in the Bible.

In other lectures we have mentioned that the fluid related with the digestive system is honey. Honey is related with the digestive system, olive oil with the reproductive system.

This is because, during the sexual act, the sexual organ is the one that emits that oil or lubricant in order to have the pleasure of the sexual act, yet olive oil is also related with what is deposited within the substance Jing.

Olive oil is what we have to liberate from the Jing. This is why the sexual organs are related with the olive oil. The anointment with olive oil implies sexual activity. This is the meaning of the anointment of the Holy Spirit.

Then, the dew that circulates in the blood is related with Hod, which is the lymph, the white cells that help to fight the sicknesses and microbes in our organism. That circulates in the blood.

When you transmute your olive oil (which is the fluid of your sexual organs), it circulates in the blood too. So every system relates to every other in that manner, this is how we find the relationship of all of those fluids in an Alchemical manner.

They relate alchemically, even if we do not know about it. However, because we ignore it, man & woman go to the sexual act and lose all the fluids, because the sexual fluid is precisely the synthesis of all those fluids.

Even what we eat down here in Malkuth gives us our sexual energy.

The sexual energy is the outcome of what we think, what we breathe, the impressions we receive, and what we eat. That is the synthesis of all those fluids that relate to the Heptaparaparshinokh, the Law of Seven.

So, did we understand how our physicality relates to all the Sephiroth?

Jesus answered and said to them, destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years took this temple in building, and will you raise it up in three days? But he spoke of the temple of his body.
– John 2:19-21

In the Alchemical and Kabbalistic manner, the temple of our body is where all of these forces, all these energies, are involved, which we ignorantly destroy.

Usually, we destroy them, thus we grow old and then we die. However, Master Jesus said, “Destroy this temple,” addressing the Sephiroth in his physical body, “and in three days I will raise it up.” These three days are symbolic.

When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this to them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
– John 2:22

Now do we understand this saying of Master Jesus? It is not like the common and ordinary people think, “Oh, if I believe in Jesus I will resurrect.” Jesus was talking cryptically about the temple of his body, since he knew about this knowledge that we are talking about here.

Jesus knew about the Kabbalistic systems of the body and how they are related with the Law of Seven and the Law of Three, the three primary forces in Taoism—Jing, Qi, and Shen—and the duality, Yin-Yang. Does Jesus explain this Alchemical procedure in the Bible?

Jesus answered: Truly, truly, I say to you, except a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said to you, You must be born again. The wind blows where it wants, and you hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell from where it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Nicodemus answered and said to him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said to him, Are you a master of Israel, and know not these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak what we do know, and testify what we have seen; and you receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, then how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
– John 3: 5-12

This is why we always end with Malkuth, by telling you earthly things that relate to our best friend, Martha.

Martha is always here, showing us that if we want a lot of Qi, then we have to know how to feed our physicality.

But, as we have mentioned, we also feed ourselves through the impressions we receive, through our physicality. Yet, the many nutrients needed in order to have a healthy body are in the hands of Martha, which is that consciousness with wisdom, Sophia, hidden in the body that transforms the food in the positive manner so that we can take advantage of Paramartha (Absolute Consciousness).

The Seal of the Cross and Conclusion

The Jera Rune itself is explained alchemically. It is a seal in which we apply the Jing, the Qi and the Shen, when we are sealing ourselves with the sign of the cross and by the Tetragrammaton.

This is a practice of the Jera Rune: seals. Any type of seal is related with Jera , with those forces: Yin-Yang, the harvesting.

There is, in esotericism, a seal that we have to learn, and which is known amongst the Gnostics. They call it the Seal of the Cross. In this seal, the cross remains in the middle of the circle. This is a seal that protects us. We start with the root of our nose, which is precisely the root of the atom of the Father. From there we say, “In the name of the Father”; then we go into the heart, “and the Son”, because the heart is the kingdom of the Son; “And the Holy Spirit” which is directly related to our sexual glands.

However, in order make the cross, we need to trace the horizontal beam. Pay attention because here is the symbol and the meaning of the next movement: from our sex we lift our hand towards our left shoulder (Geburah – the Spiritual Soul), and from it we trace the horizontal line towards the right shoulder (Chesed, which is also called Gedulah – the Monad). Thus the Holy Spirit remains united with the Son and the Father in the heart (Tiphereth – the Human Soul).

1. “In the name of the Father” (root of the nose),
2. “the Son” (the heart),
3. “and the Holy Spirit” (sexual glands),
4. and then we lift Jing to our left shoulder,
5. and cross it to the right shoulder.
6. Then, we encircle the cross by tracing a circle from our head, down towards the left and up to the right, and say, “By the most holy Tetragrammaton”

What is the Tetragrammaton? It is Yod-Heh-Vav-Heh, the four-lettered name of God. So when we trace the circle, descending towards the left, and ascending towards the right, we are encircling the cross with the famous Tetragrammaton; this is how we are sealing, protecting ourselves.

Many Gnostics perform that seal, but they do not understand why they are doing it. It is the three primary forces—Jing, Qi, and Shen, the cross—enclosed by the circle, by the four elements—fire, air, water and earth.

When we say Tetragrammaton, we are naming the four elements. God (Yod-Heh-Vav-Heh, the famous Tetragrammaton) commands nature in our own body. Thus this cross, this seal, is related with the Holy Trinity in Taoism.

People think that the Holy Spirit is the Heart. They think the Son is in the sex. No, the Son is in the heart, the Holy Spirit is in the sex. Yet, if we understand the movement of that seal, we will understand that we are uniting them in the heart by transmuting the sexual Jing into Qi and Shen.

The Son is in the heart, but for the Holy Spirit to be in the heart we have to descend and to lift it from the sex, because we have to raise the Holy Spirit, which is our sexual energy, Jing.

Remember that when we perform these seals, if we are not sowing our energy correctly, then they take no effect. This is because in order to have an effect, we need to practice Alchemy, and that is the meaning of the Jera Rune. It is the Solar Harvesting.

People take care of their solar harvesting, the meaning of the Jera , in relation with their outer nature, but here we are Gnostics, and we have to talk about the harvesting inside of us. We have to deal with those energies in order to harvest something good.

If we have a lot of Qi, we can heal, we can use our Qi through our hands, but we have to transmute Jing, Qi, and Shen: we have to be Alchemists in order to save those substances.

If we are fornicators, then how are we going to save Jing, Qi, and Shen? We might save Jing, Qi, and Shen or take them from nature with the Tai Ji dances, and many of the other practices from Taoism. We can also charge our body with the Runes that we teach here. Take the Jing, Qi, and Shen from the atmosphere with the Runes in order to charge your body.

But if you are a fornicator, what are you doing? Charging your body with Jing, Qi, and Shen in order to throw them out in the sexual act; this is just a waste of time.

We have to learn to save energy. Here we learn how the energies are related with the systems of our physicality, because the physical body is the temple of God that we destroy.

Indeed, we are not in the level of Jesus who can say, “Destroy my body and I will resurrect three days after.” He was talking to the Jews, which are precisely those Pharisee elements that in this case represent the defects and vices that we have, that destroy the body of God, or the Temple of God, because this is what we do.

We destroy the temple of God in many ways: anger, lust, pride, envy, laziness, gluttony. The Bible talks about how we destroy the Temple of God:

My house (Malkuth, the physical body) shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.
– Matthew 21:13
