The Axis of Nature: Involution and Evolution

Upon creating the INTRANSIGENT DOGMA of EVOLUTION, the decrepit western mind totally forgot the destructive processes of Nature.

It is interesting that the degenerated mind cannot conceive of the inverse process, INVOLUTION, on a LARGE SCALE.

The mind, in a state of decrepitude, confuses a fall with a descent and the process of destruction, dissolution on a large scale, degeneration, etc., it classifies as change, progress, EVOLUTION…

Everything EVOLVES and INVOLUTES, ascends and descends, comes and goes, ebbs and flows ; a systole and a diastole exists in everything, in accordance with the Law of the Pendulum.

EVOLUTION and its Twin sister INVOLUTION are two Laws which are developed and processed in a coordinated and harmonious manner in everything created. They constitute the mechanical axis of nature.

EVOLUTION and INVOLUTION are two mechanical laws of nature which have nothing to do with the INTIMATE SELF-REALIZATION of the human being.

The INTIMATE SELF-REALIZATION of the human being can never be the product of any mechanical law, but rather is the result of a conscious work done upon and within ONESELF, on the basis of TREMENDOUS SUPER-EFFORTS, in-depth comprehension and intentional & voluntary sufferings.

Everything RETURNS to the point of departure and the LUNAR EGO returns after death to a new womb.

It is written that every human being is assigned ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT lives in order to SELF-REALIZE.

Time is running out for many people. Whosoever does not attain SELF-REALIZATION within their allotted time ceases to be born, in order to enter the INFERNAL WORLDS.

In support of the LAW of INVOLUTION or retrogression comes the BHAGAVAD GITA, saying:

“They, the evil, cruel and ungrateful, I cast them perpetually into the ASURIC (DEMONIACAL) WOMBS, in order for them to be born in these worlds” (THE INFERNAL WORLDS).”

“Oh, Kountreya!, those hallucinated people go to the Demoniacal wombs during many lives and continue falling into more and more inferior bodies each time (INVOLUTION).”

“Triple is the door of that destructive inferno; it is made up of lust, anger and covetousness; that is why it should be abandoned.”

The antechamber of the INFERNAL WORLDS is the INVOLUTIVE descent into bodies which are more and more inferior each time, in accordance with the LAW of INVOLUTION.

Those who descend through the spiral of life fall into Demoniacal wombs during several lives before entering into the INFERNAL WORLDS of NATURE, situated (according to DANTE) within the interior of the terrestrial organism.

The 108 Lives, the Essence or Buddhata and the Law of Karma

In the second chapter [about Taurus] we spoke about the SACRED COW and its deep significance; it is very interesting that every BRAHMIN in INDIA, when praying the ROSARY, counts one hundred and eight beads of it.

There are HINDUS who do not consider their sacred duties fulfilled, if they do not walk one hundred and eight times around the PRINCIPAL COW, with the ROSARY in hand, and if they do not fill a cup with water and place it for a moment on the COW’s tail, and drink it as the most sacred and delicious Divine liquor.

It is URGENT to remember that BUDDHA’s necklace has ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT beads.

All of this invites us to reflect on the ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT LIVES which are assigned to the HUMAN BEING.

It is clear that whosoever does not take advantage of those ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT LIVES enters into the INVOLUTION of the INFERNAL WORLDS.

INFERNAL INVOLUTION is a fall backwards, towards the past, passing through all the animal, vegetable and mineral states, through frightful suffering.

The last stage of the INFERNAL INVOLUTION is the fossil state, after which follows the DISINTEGRATIONS of the lost ones.

The only thing that is SAVED from all of that tragedy, the only thing that is NOT disintegrated is the ESSENCE, the BUDDHATA, that FRACTION OF HUMAN SOUL that the poor INTELLECTUAL ANIMAL carries within their LUNAR BODIES.

INVOLUTION in the INFERNAL WORLDS has precisely as its objective the liberation of the BUDDHATA, the HUMAN SOUL, in order for it to reinitiate its EVOLUTIVE ascent from the original chaos through the mineral, vegetable and animal rungs, until it reaches the level of INTELLECTUAL ANIMAL mistakenly called a HUMAN BEING.

It is lamentable that so many SOULS relapse, and return again & again to the INFERNAL WORLDS.

Time in the INFERNAL WORLDS of the SUBMERGED MINERAL KINGDOM is frighteningly slow and boring; for every frightfully long ONE HUNDRED YEARS in those ATOMIC INFERNOS of nature, one pays a certain quantity of KARMA.

Whosoever totally disintegrates in the INFERNAL WORLDS, is even with the LAW OF KARMA.

After the death of the PHYSICAL BODY, every human being (after having reviewed the life that just passed) is JUDGED by the LORDS OF KARMA.

The lost ones enter the INFERNAL WORLDS after their good and bad deeds have been placed on the scales of COSMIC JUSTICE.

The LAW OF THE SCALES, the TERRIBLE LAW OF KARMA, governs everything created.

Every cause converts itself into an effect and every effect is transformed into a cause.

By modifying the CAUSE, one MODIFIES the EFFECT.

Do good deeds in order for you to pay your debts.

The LION OF THE LAW is fought with the scales.

If the plate of the bad deeds weighs more, then I advice you to increase the weight on the plate of the good deeds; in this manner you will incline the scales in your favor.

Whosoever has CAPITAL with which to pay, pays and comes out well in the negotiations; but whosoever does not have CAPITAL, shall pay with pain.

When an INFERIOR LAW is transcended by a SUPERIOR LAW, then the SUPERIOR LAW WASHES away the INFERIOR LAW.

Reincarnation vs Recurrence, and the Twice Born

Millions of persons speak about the LAWS of REINCARNATION and KARMA, without having experienced in a direct manner their deep SIGNIFICANCE.

Really, the LUNAR EGO RETURNS, REINCORPORATES, and penetrates into a new womb, but that cannot be called REINCARNATION; speaking with precision we will say that it is RETURN.

REINCARNATION is something else; REINCARNATION is only for MASTERS, for SACRED INDIVIDUALS, for the TWICE BORN, for those who already possess the BEING.

The LUNAR EGO returns and in accordance with the LAW of RECURRENCE, in each life it repeats the same actions, and the same dramas of preceding lives.

The SPIRAL LINE is the line of life and each life is either repeated in more elevated, EVOLUTIVE SPIRALS, or in lower, INVOLUTIVE SPIRALS.

Each life is a repetition of the past one, plus its good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant, consequences.

In a resolved and definitive manner, many persons descend from life to life on the involutive spiral line, until finally entering the INFERNAL WORLDS.

Whosoever wants to attain in-depth SELF-REALIZATION, should liberate themselves from the vicious circle of the EVOLUTIVE and INVOLUTIVE LAWS of nature.

Whosoever, in TRUTH, wants to come out of the STATE of INTELLECTUAL ANIMAL, whosoever very sincerely wants to convert themselves into a TRUE MAN, A TRUE HUMAN BEING, should liberate themselves from the MECHANICAL LAWS of nature.

Everyone who wants to become a TWICE BORN, everyone who wants INTIMATE SELF-REALIZATION, should get onto the path of the REVOLUTION OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS; this is the path of the RAZOR’S EDGE.

This path is full of dangers within and without.


“Among men, few are the ones who reach the other shore.

Others wander on this shore, from one side to the next.”

Jesus the Christ says:

“Of a thousand who seek me, one finds me, of a thousand who find me, one follows me, of a thousand who follow me, one is mine.”


“Among thousands of men, perhaps one strives to reach perfection; among the strivers, possibly one achieves perfection and among the perfect, perhaps one knows me perfectly.”

The DIVINE RABBI OF GALILEE never said that the LAW of EVOLUTION would take all human beings to perfection.

JESUS, in the four gospels, places emphasis on the difficulty of entering the KINGDOM.

“Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

“When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and He shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are.

“Then shall ye begin to say, we have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

“But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

“There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the KINGDOM OF GOD, and you yourselves thrust out.” (See Luke 13:24-28)

The LAW OF NATURAL SELECTION exists in everything created; not all students who enroll in a higher education program graduate as professionals.

JESUS CHRIST never said that the LAW of EVOLUTION would lead all human beings to the final goal.

Some PSEUDO-ESOTERICISTS and PSEUDO-OCCULTISTS say that one reaches GOD through many paths.

This is really a SOPHISM with which they always want to justify their own errors.

The GREAT HIEROPHANT JESUS the CHRIST only pointed out a single door and a single path:

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:14)

The GATE and the PATH are sealed by a great STONE; happy is whosoever can roll away that STONE, but that is not a matter for this lesson, that belongs to the lesson of Scorpio; we are now studying the zodiacal sign of the SCALES, the sign of LIBRA.

Becoming Conscious of our own Karma, and the Esoteric Attributes of Libra

We need to become conscious of our own KARMA and that is only possible by means of the STATE OF ALERT NOVELTY.

Every EFFECT of life, every event, has its cause in a previous life, but we need to become conscious of that.

Every moment of HAPPINESS or PAIN should be continued in MEDITATION with a STILL mind and in PROFOUND SILENCE.

The RESULT comes to be the experience of the same event in a previous life.

We then become CONSCIOUS of the CAUSE of the act, whether it be pleasant or unpleasant.

Whosoever awakens CONSCIOUSNESS, can travel in their INTERNAL BODIES outside the PHYSICAL BODY, with FULL CONSCIOUS WILLPOWER and study their own book of destiny.

In the TEMPLE OF ANUBIS and his FORTY-TWO JUDGES, the INITIATE can study their own book.

ANUBIS is the supreme ruler of KARMA.

The Temple of ANUBIS is found in the Molecular World, called the Astral World by many people.

INITIATES can negotiate directly with ANUBIS.

We can cancel every Karmic debt with GOOD DEEDS, but we have to negotiate with ANUBIS.

The LAW OF KARMA, the LAW of the COSMIC SCALE is not a blind LAW; one can also ask for CREDIT from the LORDS OF KARMA, but every CREDIT must be paid with good deeds and if not paid, then the LAW collects with pain.

LIBRA, the zodiacal sign of the SCALES, governs the KIDNEYS.

LIBRA is the sign of the balancing forces and in the kidneys, the forces of our organism should equilibrate themselves in a complete manner.

Stand up, in a military position of attention and then with the arms extended in the form of a CROSS or SCALES, move in the form of a SCALE, inclining seven times to the right and seven to the left with the intention that all of your energies become equilibrated in the kidneys.

The movement of the upper half of the spinal column should be like that of a scale.

The forces that ascend from the earth passing by the sieve of our feet along the entire organism, should balance themselves at the waist and this is carried out successfully with the BALANCING MOVEMENT of LIBRA.

LIBRA is governed by VENUS and SATURN. Copper is its Metal. CHRYSOLITE is its stone.

In practice we have been able to verify that the natives of LIBRA usually have, most often, a certain imbalance in matters related to conjugal life, to love.

The natives of LIBRA create many problems for themselves due to their manner of being frank and JUST.

LIBRA PEOPLE of good aspect like things straight and just.

Many people do not understand LIBRAs well; they sometimes appear cruel and merciless. They do not know or want to know about diplomacy; hypocrisy bothers them, sweet words of the perverse easily upset them instead of softening them.

LIBRA PEOPLE have the defect of not knowing how to forgive their fellowmen; they want to see the Law and nothing but the Law in everything, often forgetting mercy.

The NATIVES OF LIBRA like to travel very much and are persons who faithfully fulfill their duties.

The natives of LIBRA are what they are and nothing but what they are, frank and just.

People usually become angry with the natives of LIBRA; they are interpreted erroneously due to that manner of being and as is natural, ill is spoken of them and they usually fill themselves up with unwarranted enemies.

The LIBRA PERSON cannot be approached with DOUBLE DEALINGS; that is not tolerated and not forgiven by the LIBRA PERSON.

One has to always be friendly and kind or always severe with LIBRA PEOPLE, but never with that alternating sweetness and harshness, because the LIBRA PERSON never tolerates and never forgives that.


The inferior type of LIBRA is very fornicating and adulterous.

The superior type of LIBRA has a certain SPIRITUALITY that SPIRITUALISTS do not understand and erroneously judge. This type of LIBRA wants to always live anonymously and unknown, and never feels any attraction for fame, for laurels, for prestige.

The superior type of LIBRA reveals sensibleness and the sense of foresight and savings.

The inferior type of LIBRA has much superficiality and covetousness.

In the medium [or intermediate] type of LIBRA, many qualities and defects of the superior and inferior types of LIBRA usually mix.

Marriage with Piscian people is convenient for the natives of LIBRA.

The natives of LIBRA like to do deeds of charity without expecting a reward or boasting or publishing the service done.

The superior type of LIBRA loves select music, takes pleasure in it and enjoys it to a maximum degree.

LIBRA PEOPLE also feel attraction for good theater, good literature, etc.

Samael Aun Weor’s Practices to Work on the Energy of Libra

The forces that ascend from the earth up through the entire organism, should become equilibrated at the waist and this is carried out successfully with the balancing movement of Libra:

      1. Stand up, in a military position of attention, then extend the arms in the form of a cross or scale.

      2. Move in the form of a scale, inclining seven times to the right and seven to the left with the intention that all of your energies become equilibrated in the kidneys (the movement of the upper half of the spinal column should be like that of a scale).
