Sagittarius 3

Famous Alchemists and the True Path

From Geber to the enigmatic and powerful COUNT CAGLIOSTRO (who transmuted lead into gold and fabricated diamonds of the best quality), there has existed a long series of ALCHEMISTS and investigators of the PHILOSOPHICAL STONE (SEX).

Obviously, it is quite clear that only those sages who dissolved the LUNAR EGO and despised the vanities of this world had true success in their inquiries.

Among all of those VICTORIOUS ALCHEMISTS and ADEPTS who worked in the laboratory of SEXUAL ALCHEMY: Basil Valentine, Ripley, Bacon, Honks Roger, etc. stood out.

Nicholas Flammel is still very debated; some suppose that he did not attain the difficult goal during his life… since he refused to reveal his secret to the King, he ended his days locked up in the terrible BASTILLE. Frankly, we are convinced that Nicholas Flammel, the Great Alchemist succeeded in transmuting all the Lead of his Personality into the marvelous Gold of the Spirit.

Trevisan, the famous Trevisan, spent his entire fortune seeking the PHILOSOPHICAL STONE and managed to discover the secret at the age of seventy-five years, already too late.

As we know, the PHILOSOPHICAL STONE is sex and the secret is the MAITHUNA (Sexual Magic), but the poor Trevisan, in spite of possessing a formidable intelligence, only managed to discover the secret in his old age.

Paracelsus, the disciple of Trithemius, great Alchemist and Doctor, knew the secret of the PHILOSOPHICAL STONE, transmuted lead into gold and carried out surprising cures. Many suppose that Paracelsus died a violent death, by assassination or suicide, for having revealed a part of the Mysteries, but the reality is that Paracelsus disappeared without anyone knowing how or why.

All of us know that Paracelsus acquired that which is called the Elixir of Long Life and that (with said marvelous elixir) he still sustains himself: he lives with the same physical body that he had in the Middle Ages.

Schroepfer and Lavater practiced certain too very dangerous magical rites, which caused them a violent death without having attained in-depth self-realization.

The famous doctor J. Dee sought the PHILOSOPHICAL STONE and never found it, but he was reduced to the most frightening misery. In the final years of his life, the poor doctor horribly degenerated with mediumship and became a toy of the inferior entities that live in the molecular world.

SETON was imprisoned for refusing to reveal the secret of the PHILOSOPHICAL STONE.

Dr. Prise, of the Royal Society of London, succeeded in transmuting physical lead into material gold, but upon wanting to repeat the experiment before his colleagues, he failed and then, ashamed and desperate, he committed suicide.

DELISLE, the great DELISLE, for the same reasons, was imprisoned and upon trying to escape from the horrible dungeon where he was imprisoned, was killed by the guards.

All these failures and hundreds of others reveal that the True Practical Occultism and its terrible magical powers, demand the most frightening sanctity, without which it is impossible to face the dangers of Alchemy and Magic.

To speak of sanctity in these times is something very difficult because the world is full of stupidly sanctimonious persons who presume themselves to be saints.

The Great Master of strength/force [“de la fuerza” ] named Moria told us the following (while conversing with us in Oriental Tibet) :

“To unite oneself with the Intimus is very difficult; out of two who attempt to unite themselves with the Intimus, merely one achieves it, because as the poet Guillermo Valencia said, “Among the rhythms of the verse, crime is also hidden”.”

Crime garbs itself as a Saint, Martyr, Apostle.

-Paraphrase from Ch. 9 ‘Sagittarius’ of Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology

 

Understanding the Demands of the Path

Millions of persons who are aficionados of occultist literature presume themselves to be Saintly; they do not eat meat, or smoke, or drink, but at home, they fight with their spouse, they beat their children, fornicate, commit adultery, they do not pay their debts, they promise and do not fulfill, etc., etc., etc.

In the physical world, many persons have reached absolute chastity, but when these persons are subjected to the test in the internal worlds, they then end up being frighteningly fornicating.

Many are the devotees of the path who in the physical world would never drink a cup of wine, but in the internal worlds, they are lost drunkards when they were subjected to the test.

Many are the devotees of the path who in the physical world are humble sheep, but subjected to the test in the internal worlds, they result in being true tigers.

Many are the devotees of the path who do not covet money, but covet psychic powers.

There are many devotees of the path, in the world, whose humility astonishes others; they can calmly sleep on the ground, at the door of a rich person’s home, and are even content with the crumbs that fall from the master’s table, but they are proud of possessing many virtues or boast of their humility.

Many people have aspired to sanctity when they found out that authentic cases of true saints do exist.

Many are those who envy the holiness of others and, due to this, they also want to be saints.

Many individuals do not work in the dissolution of the Lunar Ego because of pure mental laziness.

Innumerable aspirants to the Light eat three banquets daily; they are terribly gluttonous.

Many do not murmur with their lips, but they murmur with their mind and yet, they believe that they never murmur.

Rare are the aspirants who know how to obey the FATHER who is in secret.

Wanting to tell the truth, almost all students of occultism, lie; they have a deceitful tongue. They affirm what they have not experienced and that is to lie.

Nowadays, it is very common to bear false witness and many students of occultism do so without knowing that they commit a crime.

Vanity also dresses itself in rags and many are the aspirants who dress poorly and walk the streets in total untidiness, but vanity can also be seen through the holes of their clothes.

Innumerable aspirants have not been able to abandon Self-Esteem (literally ‘SELF-LOVE’); they love themselves too much and they suffer the unutterable when someone snubs them.

A multitude of aspirants are full of evil thoughts; they have not been able to control their mind and yet, they believe that they are doing very well.

Innumerable pseudo-esotericists and pseudo-occultists, if they are not greedy with money, are then greedy with the teachings; they have not been able to transcend Greed.

Thousands of aspirants carry worldliness in themselves, even when they never attend a dance, or party.

Many devotees of the path have not been able to abandon stealing; they steal books, they go into Esoteric Schools to steal something, even when it is theories, or secrets; they fake loyalty while they fulfill their job of stealing and then they do not return.

Innumerable devotees say bad words, some only pronounce them mentally, even when their lips speak sweetness.

Many virtuous persons are cruel with people. We knew the case of a virtuous man who hurt with mean phrases a wretched person who composed a verse for him. The unfortunate man was hungry and since he was a poet, he composed a verse for the virtuous man with the purpose of obtaining a coin. The response was serious; presuming of modesty and humility, the virtuous man insulted the hungry man.

A multitude of aspirants to the light are offended and cruelly humiliated by the preceptors of certain schools.

Many are the persons who would be capable of everything in life except killing someone, but: they kill with their ironies, with their evil actions, with wounding laughter, with a harsh word.

Many are the husbands who have killed their wives with their evil actions, with their bad conduct, with their horrible jealousies, ingratitude, etc. Many are the wives who have killed their husbands with their bad character, with stupid jealousies, with their inconsiderate demands, etc., etc., etc.

We should not forget that every illness has psychic causes. Insults, irony, thunderous and offensive laughter, evil words serve to cause harm, illnesses, to assassinate, etc.

Many parents would have lived a little longer, if their children would have allowed them. Almost all human beings are matricides, parricides, fratricides, uxoricides [killing one’s spouse], etc., etc.

-Paraphrase from Ch. 9 ‘Sagittarius’ of Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology

 

We need to Reflect on what it takes to Walk the Path

Piety is lacking in students of occultism; they are incapable of sacrificing themselves for their fellow human beings who suffer and cry.

There is no true charity in thousands of aspirants, they presume themselves to be charitable, but when we call upon them to struggle for a new social order, they flee terrified or they justify themselves saying that the Law of Karma and Evolution will resolve everything.

Cruel, merciless, are the aspirants to the Light; they say that they love but they do not, they preach charity, but do not practice it.

The sign of Sagittarius invites us to reflect on all of this.

 
Sagittarius is symbolized by a man who holds an arrow in his hand, half-horse, half-man.

The horse represents the Animal Ego, the Pluralized “I” garbed with its Lunar Bodies.

The “I” is not something Individual; the “I” does not have Individuality. The “I” is Plural. The Lunar Ego is constituted by a sum of small “I’s”. Each psychological defect is personified by a small “I”.

The entirety of all of our defects is represented by the Pluralized “I”. The most serious problem that everyone who attains the Second Birth has to solve is that of the Dissolution of the Lunar Ego.

The newly born Master is garbed with his Solar Bodies, but his Ego is garbed with the Lunar Bodies. Two paths open before the newly born Master, that of the right and that of the left.

On the path of the right tread those Masters who work in the Dissolution of the Lunar Ego. On the path of the left tread those who do not concern themselves with the dissolution of the Lunar Ego.

The Masters who do not dissolve the Lunar Ego become Hanasmuss. A Hanasmuss is a subject with a Double Center of Gravity. This is a Master (garbed with their Solar Bodies) and the Lunar Ego (garbed with its Lunar vehicles), which constitutes a double personality: a Hanasmuss.

The Hanasmuss is one half Angel, and one half beast, like the centaur of Sagittarius. The Hanasmuss has two inner personalities, one of an Angel, and another of a Demon. The Hanasmuss is an abortion of the Cosmic Mother, a Failure.

If the Gnostic student dissolves the Lunar Ego before the Second Birth, then they are completely cured, they solve their problem ahead of time, and they secure their success.

Whoever invokes Andrameleck in the internal worlds will have the most tremendous surprise, because either the demon Andrameleck or Andrameleck, the Master of the White Lodge, can attend. This person is a Hanasmuss with a double center of gravity.

The dissolution of the Lunar Ego is fundamental in the Great Work. Those who attain the Second Birth feel the necessity of eliminating the Lunar Bodies, but this is not possible without first having dissolved the Lunar Ego.

The twice-Born become stagnant in their inner progress when they lack Love.

-Paraphrase from Ch. 9 ‘Sagittarius’ of Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology

 

The Essence is Bottled up within the Ego

Everyone who forgets their Divine Mother becomes stagnant in their progress. A lack of Love exists when we commit the error of forgetting our Divine Mother.

It is impossible to eliminate all those small “I” that constitute the Lunar Ego without the help of the Divine Mother.

Comprehending any defect is fundamental, indispensable, when one wants to eliminate the small “I” that personifies it, but the work of elimination in ITSELF, is impossible without the help of the Sacred five-legged Cow.

The Divine Mother eliminates broken bottles. Each small “I” is a bottle within which a fraction of the Essence is engrossed.

This signifies that the Essence, the Buddhata, the Fraction of the Human Soul (that every intellectual animal has), has become thousands of fractions, which are bottled up.

For example: ANGER, is represented by hundreds or thousands of “I’s” each is a bottle within which the ESSENCE is engrossed; to each bottle corresponds a fraction of the ESSENCE. All those bottles of ANGER, all those “I’s”, live in each of the forty-nine departments or regions of the subconscious.

The comprehension of ANGER in any Subconscious department means to break a bottle; then, the corresponding fraction of the ESSENCE liberates itself. When this happens, the Divine Mother intervenes by eliminating the broken bottle, the cadaver of a small shattered “I”.

Each cadaver no longer contains that Fraction of the Soul that it previously imprisoned. This cadaver disintegrates little by little in the infernal worlds. It is necessary to know that the Divine Mother only intervenes in this case, when the bottle is destroyed, when the ESSENCE enclosed in it has been liberated.

If the Divine Mother was to eliminate the bottle with the little genie inside, then the poor little genie (in other words, the Fraction of the Soul) would also have to enter into the Infernal worlds.

When all the bottles have been broken, then the ESSENCE (in its totality) has been liberated and the Divine Mother dedicates herself to the elimination of cadavers.

 
The Comprehension of Anger in twenty or thirty subconscious regions, does not mean that one has comprehended it in all the forty-nine departments. The Comprehension of Anger in department three or four, means the breaking or shattering of a bottle in the corresponding department. Nonetheless, many “I’s” of Anger, many bottles, can continue in all the other subconscious departments.

Each defect processes itself in each of the forty-nine regions of the subconscious and has many roots.

Anger, Covetousness, Lust, Envy, Pride, Laziness, Gluttony, have thousands of bottles, thousands of small “I’s” within which the Essence is bottled up.

When the Pluralized “I” is killed and eliminated, then the Essence unites with the Being, with the Intimus, and the Lunar Bodies are eliminated during a mystical trance, which lasts three days. After the Three Days, the Master, garbed with their Solar Bodies, returns, comes back to their Physical Body.

This is the Initiatic Resurrection.

-Paraphrase from Ch. 9 ‘Sagittarius’ of Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology

 

The Resurrected Master is an Alchemist

Every Resurrected Master has Solar Bodies, but does not have Lunar Bodies.

The Resurrected Masters have powers over Fire, Air, Water and the Earth. They can transmute physical lead into physical gold.

The Resurrected Masters govern Life and death, they can conserve the physical body during millions of years, they know the quadrature of the circle and the perpetual movement, they have the universal medicine and speak the very pure language of the Divine Tongue which, like a golden river, flows delightfully beneath the thick jungle of the Sun.

Whosoever is dying from moment to moment is subjected to thousands of esoteric tests in each of the forty-nine subconscious departments of Yaldabaoth [the Mind].

After coming out victorious from a few departments or regions of the SUBCONSCIOUS, many Initiates fail in some other departments in certain tests related with a certain Psychological defect.

The Divine Mother always helps us to Comprehend when we call upon her, when we call upon the flame of the Serpent.

The Divine Mother prays for us to the White Lodge and eliminates, one by one, those “I’s” that have already died.

 

The Divine Mother, the Sacred five-legged Cow, is Mother-Space, the Mother of the Spiritual Monad who takes refuge in the eternal Nothing-All of the Ineffable Father, in the Absolute Silence and the Absolute Darkness.

If it is for something that we have our Particular Maternal Ray, our Individual Divine Mother, it is precisely because she, in herself, is the Mother of the Inner-Being, hidden within the Monad, one with the Monad.

If Artemis Loquia or Neiter was Luna in the heavens for the Greeks, then the chaste Diana on Earth was the Divine Mother presiding over the birth and life of the child. For the Egyptians it was Hekate in the Inferno, the Goddess of Death, that reigned over the spells and sacred Magic.

Hekate-Diana-Luna is the Triune Divine Mother, while at the same time One, in the fashion of the Hindu Trimurti: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

The Divine Mother is Isis, the Ceres of the Mysteries of Eleusis, the Celestial Venus; she, who in the beginning of the world originated the attraction of the sexes and propagated with human generations with eternal fecundity.

She is Proserpine, of the nocturnal barks, the one who in her triple appearance, Celestial, Terrestrial and Infernal, oppresses the terrible demons of the Avernus, keeping the doors of the subterranean prisons closed and triumphantly traveling the Sacred Forests.

Sovereign of the Stygian Dwelling, she shines in the center of the darkness of Acheron, the same as on the Earth and the Elysian Fields.

 
Due to a certain mistake of a few Sacred Individuals in archaic times, the poor intellectual animal received the abominable Kundartiguador or Kundabuffer Organ. Such an organ is the Tail of Satan, the sexual fire heading downwards, towards the Atomic Infernos of the Lunar Ego.

When the intellectual animal lost the Kundartiguador Organ, the evil consequences remained within each subject; these evil consequences are constituted by the Pluralized “I”, the Lunar Ego.

On the basis of In-depth Comprehension and profound Inner Meditation, we can and should eliminate from ourselves, with the help of the Divine Mother, the evil consequences of the abominable Kundartiguador Organ.

 
In other times, the human being did not want to live in this world, they had realized their tragic situation… Certain Sacred Individuals gave the human race the abominable Kundartiguador Organ in order for it to become excited by the beauties of this world.

The result was that the human being became excited with the world… But, when those Sacred Individuals removed the Kundartiguador Organ from humanity, the evil consequences remained in each person.

With the help of the Divine Mother, we can eliminate the evil consequences of the abominable Kundartiguador Organ.

The Gnostic Esotericism of Sagittarius

The Sign of Sagittarius with its famous centaur, one half Man, one half Beast, is something that should never be forgotten.

Sagittarius is the house of Jupiter. Its metal is tin; the stone is the blue sapphire.

In practice we have been able to verify that the natives of Sagittarius are very fornicating and passionate.

Natives of Sagittarius love journeys, explorations, adventures, sports. They easily become angry and then forgive. They are very comprehensive; they love beautiful music and possess marvelous intelligence.

Sagittarians are tenacious; when they seem to have definitely failed, they seem to resurrect from their own ashes like the Phoenix Bird of mythology, astonishing all their friends and enemies.

The natives of Sagittarius are capable of embarking on great enterprises, even when they are surrounded by immense dangers.

The financial life of Sagittarians is sometimes very good, but Sagittarians also go through great bitterness and financial difficulties.

Lust is what harms Sagittarians the most.

 
EXERCISE

Crouch, in the manner of the Peruvian Guacas; place your hands on your legs, with the index fingers pointing upwards, towards the sky, in order to attract the Rays of the planet Jupiter, so as to intensely magnetize the legs, the thighs.

The mantram of this exercise is “ISIS”. Isis is the Divine Mother.

This mantram is pronounced by prolonging the sound of each of the four letters that constitute it IIIIIIISSSSSSSSS IIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSS, divided into two syllables, IS-IS.
