Excerpted from "Secret Notes of a Guru" (1952)
March 14, 1952
Some nights ago, [in a dream vision] I saw a green serpent descending from "Ursa Major." Then I said to myself, “This is something bad, something very tough for me." That green serpent was the matrix of an omened event that awaited me.
In fact, today, Friday the 14th of March, that bad omened event was fulfilled precisely for me: in an unjust manner I was locked up in the municipal jail of Ciénaga. I destroyed the green serpent, and therefore I believe that soon I will prevail and will be released.
I am writing these letters in jail. In this place I hear only immodest and vulgar words. Only crimes and vices are spoken of here... It is repugnant... Nevertheless, I remain serene. Thus, this is how the Initiate must be.
One must learn how to smile while in the midst of any adversities. It is necessary to learn to live like Daniel in the lions’ den. How beautiful is this wonderful school of life... Now, the new era will come and there will be light, wisdom, and beauty.
But before these arrive, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. - Luke 21:12
For so persecuted they the prophets which were before you – Matthew 5:12
Therefore we, the heroes of the light must not be afraid...
Let us read of the prisons of Paul, so that we can become aware of how much the prophets who were before us have undergone.
The Sun seems to be sinking already there in the West this afternoon, and still I remain locked up in this prison. The prisoners and guards converse; they speak about horrible things... I just received a visit from a “disciple of mine;” she is a very sorrowful lady, yet her visit cheered me a lot... We, the children of the Light, form a universal fraternity.
Another day has finally dawned in this jail. Last night, my “Innermost” instructed me and told me that at these moments I need to have the mind of a "lawyer" and of a "sword." My Innermost is right, because at these moments I need to defend myself before my executioners... at these moments I need to have exact thought and precise concept.
The morning is cloudy and some prisoners speak with the guards through the bars of the jail. A prostitute is seated there; they spoke about everything, even about nastiness.
Today I have been thinking about accepting the offer of my disciple Israel Bermúdez. This brother offered a hamlet house to me, so I can live in it with my family... I had thought to remain in Ciénaga for an indefinite time, but this is impossible for me in view of the fact that these executioners from the official science, these tenebrous ones, will not leave me alone, they hate me to death because of having written The Perfect Matrimony and The Revolution of Beelzebub.
Their accusatory affidavit textually said the following:
“This man, in addition to committing the crime of healing the ill, is also the author of a book entitled The Perfect Matrimony, which is an outrage against public morality and the good customs of the citizens.”
Thus, by all means, they are looking for any circumstantial evidence as a cause in order to hurt me. The worst crime they accuse me of is to fulfill the wisdom of the Gospels: to heal the ill. Thus, the official physicians are at war against me.
Therefore, as soon as I leave this jail, I will travel to Fundación in order to speak with my disciple Israel Bermúdez and to accept his offer. Thus, there in the fields of the country, a few kilometers from Fundación, I will be able to live peacefully, in contact with the great mother Nature, "ISIS," Mary, or Maya... Hopefully, the executioners of the official science will leave me alone there.
The science of this twentieth century is tenebrous... Now the physicians of official science have under their service armies of police... thus, they incarcerate and martyrize others ... and those clinics make demonstrations of their police power. How ridiculous is this mixture of medicine with bayonets! The sacred science of Hippocrates, Galen, and Paracelsus has become "jails," gendarmes, and guns... What horrible profanation... everything in this twentieth century is tenebrous... Yet, I have my sight gazing upon the children of Aquarius...
Today, I defended myself against my judges, and my defense was so bright that it caused astonishment. I myself was astonished by what I said.
Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls. - Luke 21:14-19
This twentieth century is an epoch of unprecedented darkness; never has there been known an era more black. Everywhere, wars and rumors of wars are heard. People only talk of killing and being killed; the words "to kill," or "was killed," or "he killed" are only heard on those planets where the human evolution has failed. Such a horrible word belongs to the "Avitchi" [hell]. On the black Moon or "Lilith" and on the Earth, that word is heard everywhere. Today, there is no place upon our Earth where such a repugnant word is not heard. All of this is evidence of the horrible failure of our terrestrial evolution. The human evolution has failed. Equipped armies are seen everywhere. This corrupted civilization will be destroyed in blood and fire. Our Lord the Christ clearly spoke about this in the following verses:
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there into. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. – Luke 21:20-22
Soon the third world war will explode and this present civilization will be destroyed in blood and fire. The whole Earth will become a gigantic cemetery where only crosses, crosses, and crosses will be seen... And we will plant the flag of Aquarius on the smoky ruins of that enormous cemetery...
The new era (the Golden Age) is a birthing of nature, and all birthing is painful. Only a select group of souls will be able to have physical bodies in Aquarius, where there will be light, wisdom, and beauty; the first resurrection is in Aquarius (its Golden Age), because the second will be in Sagittarius.
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. - Revelation 20:6
The sum of a thousand years is Kabbalistically construed as follows: 1+0+0+0 = 1; meaning, a cosmic age. Such ages last for 2,000 years. During those two thousand years of Aquarius, the selected humans will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with Him throughout the era of Aquarius. Then, borders will disappear and the whole Earth will be a single mother country of love and brotherhood.
Nevertheless, in the age of Capricorn another black age will return; then, all of the evil souls who are entering into the abyss at this moment will again return to reincorporate themselves upon our Earth. Then, they will get another magnificent opportunity so that they can repent of their evilness.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison. And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. - Revelation 20:7-9
In the age of Capricorn, the demon-souls will receive another opportunity so that they can repent. Even Javhe himself will have physical body. And Javhe will be born in the lands of Judah, and the Jews will present him as their Messiah, they will state that Javhe was their long awaited for Messiah, and Javhe will perform deceptive miracles and prodigies; then the totally irredeemable souls will definitively return with Javhe to the abyss... There, in the abyss, those souls will pass through the second death. This is how those personalities already separated from their “Innermost” will be disintegrated little by little amidst the weeping and gnashing of teeth.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. – Revelation 20:10
This event will occur within 4,000 years with some more or less fractions of time, at the (Golden Age) beginning of the era of Sagittarius. This distant future event will be accompanied by the sinking of their contemporary continents, then there will be a total geological change.
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. – Revelation 20:11, 12
The dead who were judged are the living dead, those evil souls that are divorced from their “Innermost.” The book of life - which is the book of the enlightened ones - as well as all karmic books exist in the astral plane. Every soul has its own book, where all of their accounts are written.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. – Revelation 20: 13-15
The second death is the disintegration of perverse personalities who are divorced from their "Innermost," the lake of fire is the abyss, or Avitchi, a submerged plane of consciousness.
Today I have been meditating in all these things; now the Sun is setting and I am still in jail.
March 16, 1952
Another day in jail; I wait for visits. Last night, I rose even more within the scale of the hierarchies. I have paid for such an elevation by being in jail; thus, by suffering are degrees gained. I have endured with serenity and patience this painful test, thus I have transformed my very prison into a monastery of sanctity. I have not protested against anybody and I bless my executioners. One must love our friends because they understand us, and our enemies because they do not understand us.
The path is filled with thorns, and the hard stones of the path bleed the feet of the walker. I am suffering, but I hope that Julio Medina V., my beloved disciple, will remove me from this prison. Today, I have sent to Julio some letters requesting more activity from him; I am not afraid, but I have the right to defend myself. One can defend oneself, but without ever hurting anyone.
The esoteric matters that I have lived here in this jail are so beautiful and divine that I can never write them. These things cannot be written; they are "incommunicable" issues. Humans would not understand me if I were to write about these things.
Here, in this jail I have been remembering "Apollonius of Tyana." How great was this man! Apollonius spent the last days of his life in a jail. When Apollonius arrived at Rome, he contemplated the sky and said: "Something great will happen and something great will not happen." That day, a storm exploded, and, at the moment Caesar was drinking, a lightning bolt struck the cup he had in his hand and broke it; nevertheless, Caesar was unharmed.
Apollonius healed the ill. He fed himself only with fruits; he drank only pure water. He was accused of sorcery and locked in a jail, where he died.
So today, here in this jail, I have remembered the great Apollonius of Tyana. We, all the prophets of humanity, have been martyrs; this is why chapter 2 verse 10 from the book of Revelation clearly states the following:
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
The entire progress of the Initiate is based on numbers: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10; this is why it is stated unto us, “and ye shall have tribulation ten days.”
The entire path of Initiation is made of horrible tribulations; the one who treads the path of "Initiation" enters the path of the most terrible bitterness. The basis of Initiation is chastity.
Yet, behold that within every common and ordinary human being is always Satan, the beast of fornication, the animal “I” that develops in us the intellect and creates the false intellectual science of which the men of the twentieth century boast.
Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. – Revelation 2: 20-23
Thus, this is how the universal “I AM” speaks to Jezebel; thus “HE” will cast Jezebel into the abyss, and all of them, the children of fornication who commit adultery with her. No fornicator can be an Initiate.
The Kundalini rises with chastity, sanctity, and intense suffering. The path of Initiation is a path of tears and bitterness. It is necessary to rise through the seven scales of fire based on suffering and bitterness.
The seven scales of the power of the fire are symbolized by the seven falls and seven risings of Christ in his ascension towards Calvary.
Visitors are approaching at the moments in which I write these lines. The afternoon is hot, and in this jail only horrible things are heard.
I submerge myself within my Internal God, and within Him I feel filled with plentitude. Thus, this is how I have learned to live as "Daniel" in the lion’s den; this is how I have learned to transform my prison into a monastery of love, light, wisdom, and sanctity. How beautiful is the school of life! Let us be cheerful, brothers and sisters, let us be cheerful...
I hear some guards of the jail speak in wrathful manner. The visitors are impatient; some women and children wait with infinite anxiety to see and greet their beloved prisoners... I am in the midst of the pain, and I understand that “this is how the great cosmic Initiations are gained”: the gendarmes are closing the doors, and preparing everything in order to receive the visitors. Wretched gendarmes; how tenebrous is the kingdom of the devil.
The visits were all full of love. The prisoners were very much happy... and the visitors embraced their beloved prisoners. My priestess-wife wept when taking leave of me after the visit. Three other friends visited me; I thanked them very much for their visit.
My priestess-wife and I commented a little about the new degree that I received, that cost "jail for me." My spouse is very well informed about everything because "she is an Initiate" and nothing can be hidden from her.
The visit seems to have perfumed the tenebrous atmosphere of this jail. The perfume of fraternity is sublime. "Love is the incense of the Gods." The Sun is already setting in the West, and I continue meditating.
March 17, 1952
Yet again, another dawning in this jail. Last night I was investigating the thirty-three subterranean chambers of Pharaohs’ ancient Egypt. Those thirty-three subterranean chambers were like thirty-three chapels that were joined to each other by means of thirty-three vestibules. The archaeometric order of these chambers was an exact representation of our spinal column.
In ancient Egypt, the "Initiate" passed from one chamber into another chamber, in accordance to the raising of his sacred fire of Kundalini "canyon" by "canyon," that is to say, vertebra by vertebra.
Indubitably, each one of the thirty-three canyons corresponds to each one of those chambers; therefore, in each chamber the Initiate was greeted with a great festivity.
The ascent of the Kundalini through each canyon is meticulously slow and difficult. Each “canyon" has its special ordeals and its special conditions of Sanctity. Nevertheless, one can accelerate the ascent of the Kundalini, but this costs much suffering, more bitterness, and penances.
Now, those old mysteries of ancient Egypt and those thirty-three chambers must be search for within our selves, in the internal worlds. Now, the old mysteries of Egypt are in the internal worlds, thus, according to how the sacred fire is ascending through our dorsal spine, we are greeted in each one of those thirty-three sacred chambers.
The three "canyons" of our head are the canyons that cost too many tears... there, it is necessary to pass through unspeakable bitterness that must be endured in the living flesh: necessities, jails, enemies, misery, etc. This is terrible...
Each one of those "canyons," "vertebrae," or "pyramids" must be paid for by means of "unspeakable ordeals." Nevertheless, now - at any cost – “the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the brave one takes it by force.” -Matthew11:12.
The most powerful mantras that are known in order to awaken the Kundalini are the following:
KANDIL, BANDIL, RRRRRR.
It is necessary to raise the voice in the first syllable of each word, and to lower it in second syllable of each word, in a chanting manner; and it is necessary to roll the letter R to give unto it a harmonious and subtly higher vibration than the first two words, vocalize the R as if trying to imitate the sound of the rattles of the rattlesnake, or like the sound of a motor in motion; this is an acute, high sound. Today, I have been meditating on all of these things.
They told me that the lawyer will remove me from this jail, and I hope that this will be soon. I am not ashamed to declare that I was in jail, and this is why I write about it, so that the men of Aquarius will know the bitterness through which their Avatar Samael Aun Weor had to pass.
The people from this twentieth century do not understand me, yet the children of Aquarius will understand me. Therefore, brothers and sisters of Aquarius, listen to me very well: the people from the twentieth century were barbarians, thus they entered into the abyss. You will eventually enjoy peace, when all of them are locked up in the abyss. However, at long last, they will be released from the abyss, thus, they will come back again; then the Earth will be filled anew with horrible darkness. So, take advantage of the two thousand years of light. Attain the in-depth realization of your Inner Self, and be prepared to confront the coming darkness of Capricorn.
There is no doubt that this world-wide scenario, where the great battle between the powers of the light and the darkness is taking place, will have to be changed by a new "scenario."
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. - Revelation 21:1
A clear geologic change of the terrestrial crust is precisely being spoken here.
I have been thoroughly investigating the North and South poles of the Earth, thus, I see that these two poles are becoming completely ethereal. The great explorers of Antarctica affirm that such a continent is a world of images. Those images float in the polar atmosphere; therefore, the poles of the Earth are becoming ethereal.
In the future, the poles will become the equatorial axis of the Earth, due to the terrestrial movement known by the name of "precession of the equinoxes." This is a retrogradation; the Earth’s axes are deviating little by little, therefore, in the future, Antarctica will be inhabited by a divine humanity. Likewise, a continent where a divine humanity will live in the future will be discovered in the North Pole.
Today, the polar continents are uninhabitable; they are surrounded by water, snow, and ice; this is why Revelation states the following:
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. – Revelation 22: 1
By clairvoyantly observing the continent of Antarctica, we see - in the future - a divine humanity living within a great happiness.
And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. – Revelation 21:2-4
In the forecoming Antarctica only the true "Initiates," the authentic disciples of our Lord the Christ, will be able to live. The rest, by their whim, that is to say, the foredoomed humanity, will go inevitably to the abyss. This is why Revelation warns us as follows:
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. – Revelation 21:8
The second death is horrible... The personalities divorced from their “Innermost,” debauched into the fire of their own passions, are disintegrated little by little in the "Avitchi." The "Avitchi" is a submerged state of consciousness, whose material center of cosmic gravitation is the black moon, named "Lilith" by astrologers.
The Avitchi is a plane of submerged consciousness. The Avitchi is the lake burning with passional fire. The Avitchi is a submerged world, the “Abyss.” It is painful to state this, but the truth is that human evolution has failed, thus, humanity, almost in its totality, is falling into the horrible abyss. There is no doubt that in Capricorn many of the souls who will experience the sufferings of the "abyss" will resolve - in the end - to follow the teachings of Christ. Nevertheless, woe to those souls who - in the beginning of "Sagittarius" - won’t repent of their sins, because they will return to the abyss to the end of time; in the abyss they will be tormented until the end of time.
Therefore, the new scenario for human evolution will be in Antarctica, and a continent of the North Pole that has not yet been discovered. Little by little the present continents will be sunk to the bottom of the oceans; thus, the forthcoming future of humanity is in the poles. This is because when the present poles become the equatorial axis of the Earth, the aforementioned polar continents will already be totally ethereal, thus it will be that such a future Earth will be ethereal.
At the moment, the poles of the Earth are the scenario of a powerful “alchemical transmutation,” since the air, water, earth, and ice are at this moment being transmuted into ethereal-material substances - something, we might say, like physical-ethereal, or ethereal-physical. Therefore, the future Jerusalem will be the ethereal Earth of tomorrow.
The whole of this day (the 17th) has been of hope for my freedom; I see prisoners who are released, yet I keep waiting patiently for the authorization of my freedom. My lawyer is defending me against the crime of “healing the ill,” since they accuse me of “such a crime”... I have placed my hopes on my lawyer, thus, I wait patiently for my freedom. How tough is the path of the Initiation! How terrible it is, nevertheless, all of this bitterness is well worth it, because the more tough these suffering are, the greater are the celebrations in the temples and the "festivities of the Gods.”
The sufferings of the "just" have also a "limit," and the limit of those "sufferings" are the great festivities of the soul. Thus, here in this jail and between these walls and these bars, I Samael Aun Weor feel triumphant and victorious; nothing intimidates me. I am powerful!
I am full of immense joy because I have taken the fiery torch away from Baphomet. Who can stop me now in this luminous and triumphant march? Here, in this jail, I have heard several prisoners - filled with desperation - insanely protest with wrath. Yet, I do not protest nor am I desperate, nor am I frightened, because my conscience is illuminated by my Innermost, thus, in the depth of my Being shines only "that One" who is entirely just.
Rather, I have taken advantage of these painful circumstances of my life to the maximum, in order to take the light away from the darkness, and thus, to be elevated more within the luminous scale of the Hierarchies of the Light. Thus, I cannot protest against the wonderful adversities of life that await for me; instead, I consider that it is necessary to take advantage of these wonderful circumstances to the maximum, in order to attain the great realizations.
So, these bitter circumstances are magnificent opportunities that must be taken advantage of. The Master never fears, but he does not neglect either; one has the right to defend oneself, but there is no right to cause harm to anyone. Therefore, I am defending myself like a lawyer, but I am not accusing anyone, not even my executioners; rather, I affectionately held the hand of the one who threw me into this jail.
Thus, this is how one has to proceed, without hatred towards anyone; it is necessary to love our worst enemies, and to kiss the whip of the executioner.
A "prison officer" approached me and affectionately told me, "They are delaying you," then he withdrew...
The Sun shines now in the West, and I am given myself to these deep meditations. The night approaches, and the ticket for my freedom still does not arrive. What could have happened? Now, the dusk has gone, and the night has arrived...
March 18, 1952
Another day is dawning in jail, yet today I have some good hopes, since 18 is my number: 1 + 8 = 9; 9 is the number related to the Initiate.
The Masters are working intensely for my freedom. My imprisonment was not because of karma, it was only a "tough ordeal," the price for an esoteric degree. I already gained such a degree, and therefore I no longer have to be in jail. I asked a Master why they did not give me freedom yet; then, the Master cut a piece of ice, and with a profoundly compassionate tone he told me, "There has been negligence."
Yes, indeed, my first lawyer did not defend me, so it was necessary to change him for another. There has been an icy-attitude, and that "icy-attitude" can be very well symbolized by the ice of government bureaucracy.
I just have sent some letters to my dear Gnostic Brother Julio Medina V. in which I requested a “supreme effort” from him concerning my freedom.
Last night, I also sent letters to my dear disciple Israel Bermúdez from Fundación. Frater Bermúdez is a physician, thus I have requested his assistance to free me from the claws of these doctors of the official science.
The united Masters of the White Lodge performed formidable prayer chains, so they are fighting for my freedom, but everything is “dual” in creation; thus it is necessary for intense activity in the physical world on the part of my friends, so that I can attain my freedom. Any "work" of "high magic" must be accompanied by another "work" in the physical world in order to achieve a rapid success: this is how the great successes of life are attained.
At these moments, a detective friend of mine has affectionately greeted me and told me that my case has no relevance; he informed me that my lawyer is in the Judicial Office, and that such a lawyer will soon put me in the street... I say to my heart of hearts: I will wait patiently...
I see activity in this jail; some prisoners dress gladly to leave in freedom. I, however, continue waiting with patience for my freedom.
I just received a visit from Julio Medina V. and he told me there is no motive for them to keep me in this jail, since there is not even a detention note for me. So, the Frater Julio Medina V. is optimistic; he says my lawyer affirmed that today he will set me free. Julio Medina V. is the author of the "formidable" preface that adorns the first edition of my book entitled The Revolution of Beelzebub. He has had mercy on me; he himself has financed my defense, thus, he is fighting for my freedom.
In "The Vestibule of the Sanctuary" Julio Medina V. performed a thorough study of the prison system; there he reached the conclusion that the prison system as a method for correction is worthless, since as he stated, evil cannot be fought with evil, but with good. The facts show that the prison system, as a corrective method, has failed. So, Julio Medina V., with his adamantine pen, outlined in his wonderful study a new system of human reform that undoubtedly will be welcomed by the humanity of "Aquarius."
To the present date on this twentieth century, no delinquent has been corrected in jail. Jails are places of corruption; yes, in jail, many who were not thieves became thieves and criminals.
The plan of Julio Medina V. consists of replacing the jails with agricultural fields, of giving to each inmate a parcel of earth so he can cultivate it, and a house so he can live there with his wife and children, in order to avoid the sexual problem of jails. Likewise, inmates should have a savings bank; in that bank the inmates would keep the monetary income from their agricultural sales. Thus, the day on which the prisoner leaves the agricultural farm, he would have money in order to work in society. Within this system of inmate agricultural farms would be expert psychologists who would study the capacities of each inmate, as well as established schools or institutes with illustrative halls such as cinemas, libraries, conference halls, etc., where they can cultivate their capacities. Thus, through this system, physicians, dentists, shoemakers, engineers, etc., could come from those jails.
Julio Medina V. suggested that instead of guards, electrical wires of high tension could be placed around these extensive agricultural fields. Julio Medina V. welcomed this plan from a man with eagle vision, thus, he wonderfully developed it within his formidable study entitled "In the Vestibule of the Sanctuary."
To “reform” means to form again, and it is not possible form anew with evil but solely with the good; therefore, I believe that the plan which Julio Medina V. outlines in "In the Vestibule of the Sanctuary," is called for in order to fulfill a formidable mission in the future. Behold why it is impossible to disconnect “The Vestibule of the Sanctuary" from the rest of the book The Revolution of Beelzebub: such a book, as well as the “The Perfect Matrimony, is called to be the cultural basis of Aquarius. [See Editor's Note below about the Glorian edition].
Another formidable point of "In the Vestibule of the Sanctuary" by Julio Medina V. is the economic problem of the world. By clairvoyantly observing the social organization of that beautiful humanity that will inhabit Antarctica, we see there the economic plan of Julio Medina V. crystallized; we see a happy humanity: everyone will live in their house, and will have a small orchard and a garden. There, nobody will be hungry, nor will be landowners, and everyone will plant in their orchards, and eat of their harvests.
This very same economic system prevails amongst cultured humanities of any advanced planet.
The humanity of the Earth will have to adapt themselves to such a sidereal cosmic order. Thus, this is why I consider that “In the Vestibule of the Sanctuary” will totally crystallize in the future; then everybody will have to admire the colossus who wrote such a study.
These have been my reflections in this morning full of hopes for my freedom. The Sun in the sky has arrived to its zenith, and I am still in this jail.
The gendarmes distributes some currencies to the prisoners so that they can be fed, or to send friends to buy food. Now, some lunches enter, and I, sunk in my reflections, continue meditating and writing.
At lunchtime, a friend of mine brought me copies of the defense presented by my lawyer, where he asks for my immediate freedom.
The defense is magnificent, and I believe that I will prevail. Nevertheless, I am not impatient myself; I have reached the conclusion that serenity is a true armor that makes us strong and powerful. Thus, anxious for knowing my immediate future, I open the Bible, and read the following verse:
But now Jehovah hath spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and feeble. – Isaiah 16:14
I understand the esoteric meaning of this verse, because I know that Christ resuscitated at the third day from among the dead.
I know that “the glory of Moab,” that is to say, the flamboyancy of Satan, is totally downcast when the Initiate receives the Third Initiation of Major Mysteries. I understand that the very small and feeble remnants are in the mental body, which are burned by the fourth degree of the power of the fire. Therefore, let the battle, let the fight come, because we are at war against that great multitude of "Moab," the atoms of the secret enemy.
Already the Sun approaches its setting, and even though I still am in this jail, I can happily finished this day the 18th with a note that Julio Medina V. just sent me. The note says thus:
Dear frater of mine: I just went with your lawyer to the Mayor’s office; the Mayor just left urgently with the staff to "Orihueca." They left at two o’clock in the afternoon, so he will return in the first hours of the night, therefore I decided to go later with Dr. Lazzo to the house of the Mayor so he can issue the order for your freedom, since the Mayor’s secretary says that the Mayor asked him if your subject-matter was already fixed, and the Secretary answered that there is no reason why you still are detained.
Therefore, we await the arrival of the Mayor in order to verbally request what we already requested by letter, which I sent you; as you can see, all of these events of “the traveling of these functionaries” are what in the end have delayed your freedom.
Your lawyer went fast in the diligences, because they had raised a summary on you, and in order to make a summary it is necessary to oppose proofs. Therefore, we have not left an instant, thus you can be sure, that your freedom will be fulfilled as soon as the Mayor arrives.
Your attentive, confident servitor and companion, J. Medina
Therefore, this day the 18th I received the word of "freedom" and my lawyer and doctor "Lazaro Lazzo" won the lawsuit with a formidable defense.
That was all a monumental legal piece. March the 18th was then a true triumph for me...
Editor's note: Over the last thirty years of translating and preparing Samael Aun Weor's writings for publication in English, Glorian Publishing's translator has endeavored to present his writings without all of the political and sectarian dross that accumulated in the Spanish language editions of his books; thus, we have not included in English editions the vast array of introductions, prefaces, epilogues, commentaries, and other additions made to his books in Spanish by a whole host of students, disciples, publishers and writers. In the case of our previous editions of The Revolution of Beelzebub, this approach caused us to neglect including the foreword by Julio Medina. To rectify this we offer the foreword online here, and will include it as specified by Samael Aun Weor in the next edition of the book.
March 19, 1952
The lawsuit is already won, thus they are only waiting for the Mayor to arrive at his office so he can dispatch the ticket for my freedom.
However, today they celebrate the festivity of San Jose, and I heard that the Mayor "apparently" is "partying." A disciple of mine informed me that at ten (10 a.m.) the Mayor will go to the office, "apparently" just to dispatch the ticket for my freedom. I ask myself: would the Mayor leave "the party" even for a moment just because he thought of my subjugated person?
Two faithful disciples came from Barranquilla to visit me. I answered their greetings by telling them, “Here they have me locked in this jail ‘apparently’ because of the ‘very serious crime of healing the ill.’”
Both of my disciples pensively answered, “So, to do good they take as doing evil?”
I followed their conversation immediately by telling them, “Here, I feel joyful and powerful; nothing intimidates me, and I have turned my jail into a monastery. Thus is how esoteric degrees are gained...”
I conversed a little more with my disciples, and thereafter they pensively withdrew, hoping that at ten in the morning I would leave in freedom. But, I continued asking myself: would the Mayor leave his "party" just because he thinks of me?
Indeed, already 10 a.m. hour cited by the Mayor has gone; the eleventh hour of the morning approaches and the Mayor has not gone to his office, because he is "partying."
My lawyer and Don Julio Medina V. have concurred to the palace at the hour proposed by the Mayor, but everything has been useless; the Mayor has not arrived. "He is partying."
Certainly, today is the day of the celebration of San Jose and there is no service in the offices; but last night the Mayor gave his word that at 10 a.m. he would go to his office solely to extend the ticket for my freedom. Nevertheless, "his word" was not fulfilled. Why?
Back in time some years ago, so many documents were not necessary in order to conduct business, neither so many certificates, nor so many requirements. A man gave "his word" and the word of that man was his document. Today, things have changed; man has already lost the notion of the responsibility of the word, and even in the judicial offices only the ink and the paper are acceptable.
In ancient times, it was prohibited for the "Initiates" to publicly speak about ancient cataclysms, because of the fear of bringing them into existence again. The "Initiates" knew well that the word has an intimate relation with the four elements of nature, and so to speak about a cataclysm is as much as to evoke it and bring it into existence again; this is why it was prohibited for the "Initiates" to speak outside the temple about ancient catastrophes.
Every word crystallizes by means of the Tattvas; thus, this is how the present humanity has created its present life (disastrous and terrible): by means of the power of the word. This is why it was impossible for the "rooster" to be absent from the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. The rooster symbolizes the "word"...
In high, esoteric Masonry, the laryngeal chakra is represented by the hidden degree of the "rooster."
The rooster of the Passion sings when the Kundalini arrives at the "canyon" or vertebra related to the thyroid gland. All the power of the word resides in the sexual force of the rooster.
The five vowels of nature (I.E.O.U.A.) live resonating in all the nature.
The vowel "I" [pronounced “ee” as in bee] makes the pituitary and pineal glands vibrate and grants us the power of clairvoyance.
The vowel "E" [pronounced “eh” as in bed] makes the thyroid gland vibrate and grants us the power of the occult ear.
The vowel "O" [pronounced “oo” as in toe] makes the center of the heart vibrate and grants us "intuition."
The vowel "U" [pronounced “uu” as in you] wakes up the solar plexus and grants us the power of "telepathy."
The vowel "A" [pronounced “ah” as in fall] wakes up the pulmonary chakra and grants us the power of remembering past reincarnations.
One hour of daily vocalization opens all of these hidden powers to us. They must be vocalized as follows:
Mary Magdalene became filled with terror when she heard the whistle of fohat and heard the word "Tibo," "Tibo," "Tibo," that sentenced the Christ to the tragedy of Golgotha. "Mary Magdalene” was at the foot of a wall when she listened with her spiritual ears to the terrible sentence. This is because a sacred language exists in eternity which all the Masters of humanity utter: that is the golden language, which the Gods and the angels utter. That is the creative word.
"Talitha cumi," said the Christ when he performed a work of resurrection. "Talitha cumi" is a mantra in order to resuscitate the dead.
Huiracocha stated, “Whosoever knows, the word gives power to. No one has uttered it; no one will utter it, except the one who has the Word incarnated,” which means, the word can be uttered only by the one who already Self-realized the word in depth.
Let us see some words from the great language of light:
- Aibu (a word of greeting)
- Aeodon (affliction)
- Masleim (duty)
- Shu shah shu (indecent, immodest, etc.)
- Pitres (canyons or vertebrae of the dorsal spine)
- Venar (to venerate it)
- Presem (superior)
- Reidististina (reinstitute)
The Christ taught a great mantra in order to cure the ill: "Ephphatha" (be opened) to open the ears of the deaf and stammer. (Mark 7:32-37)
All of these great words of the light are a sublime language. Let us see some other words of the great golden language:
These three words are pronounced by the prophets in deep meditation, in order to prophesy, and thereafter they contemplate the future in ecstasy:
- Ja: The cane, or the sacred cane of our spinal column
- Pa: Argentine milky tree; it symbolizes redeeming blood
- Brahame: "Adam-Eve." Masculine-feminine, the cause of every existing thing
The verb of the light is an infinite verb, and the Gods use it in order to create. The final roots of all the languages are found in that great universal cosmic grammar, that the men of Arcadia once uttered. Those were the times in which the rivers flowed with milk and honey; that was the time of the "Titans"...
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. - John 1: 1-5
When Hadit, our igneous serpent, arrives at the larynx and we receive the degree of the "rooster," then we utter the golden language, and we create as the Gods, with the power of the word. This is why it is written in our Egyptian ritual:
Be thou, oh Hadit, my secret, the Gnostic mystery of my Being, the central point of my connection, my heart itself, and bloom on my fertile lips, made Verb!
When the Kundalini reaches the level of our throat, it blooms in our fertile lips, made Verb. The angels can create anything with thought and materialize it by means of their word. Sexual magic is the path in order to utter the golden language.
Already the Sun of this afternoon is setting and I remain locked up in this jail waiting for the ticket of my freedom. The mayor is at the celebration, and in regard to myself, I have to be patient...
A black magician incarnated in a physical body arrived just now in order "to tempt me." He was the "Judas" for my "Initiation." He delivered a false message to me, trying to mislead me from the path. Yet, I answered the black magician in a compassionate tone, "That message is for you; apply it to yourself.” Thus the tenebrous one withdrew.
At these moments, the lawyer arrived with the ticket for my freedom. I received the ticket calmly and serenely and said goodbye to the gendarmes; thus, this is how this day ended. I went to my house and there I found Frater Julio and many other spiritualist brothers who gladly received me and hugged me.
What the Spiritualists of the Twentieth Century Were
Children of Aquarius, let me now narrate for you what the "spiritualists" of the twentieth century were:
They were a horde of pseudo-sapients who disputed amongst themselves for the most abject and abominable supremacy that has been known in the history the world. Daily they were founding “new schools” where they were making the most flattering promises, which at heart did not have any objective other than the coin purses of the people. Rojistas, Theosophists, Rosicrucians, Spiritualists, Chenrezists, tented dunce cap people (and similar yuppies in each country), with an infinite variety of aromas and shades, were joined in a terrible fight for supremacy, within the most aggravated, never before known competition for the merchandise of souls.
Everywhere, innumerable imposters, false masters, and even "Avatars" were constantly appearing. All of them were assuming the most varied pietistic poses and pronouncing the most eloquent lectures, which hundreds of crazed, frenzied dimwits applauded. This was what the spiritualists of the twentieth century were.
What were they studying? Theories.
What were they reading? Theories.
What did they know? Theories.
All of them were filled with fornications and adulteries, and when I, Samael Aun Weor, invited them to chastity and taught them the powerful wisdom of the sacred snake, then they, filled with fear, answered me that scientific chastity was impossible, and thus they neither entered into Eden, nor suffered they that were entering to go in. These were the spiritualists of the twentieth century.
All of them rejected the messages of the superior worlds, and they only agreed with those schools that allowed them to fornicate. Those people neither saw nor heard, nor understood the language of the light; they only knew how to discuss theories and more theories. These were the spiritualist of the twentieth century.
When I, Samael Aun Weor, understood the pride and vanity of those people, I put my back to those groups of sanctimonious ones, and I went with the children of the villages. I went with the humble ones, the simple ones, the wretched pariahs of life, with the children of the village: the tortured people, the downcast people, the people who are daily humiliated by the evildoers, and I, filled with euphoria, exclaimed:
Lord, Lord, Lord, behold here your people, so simple and as wise as the sign of Aquarius, as great as the pyramids of Egypt, so ardent and so heroic as the revolutionary hordes of the children of the fire.
Now, indeed, we can exclaim from the summits of Calvary:
"Deo juvanti." We have made a race of Gods. We have made a race of heroes, a new lineage of Angels. Warriors, to the battle!
May peace be with the entire humanity.
Samael Aun Weor
