Virgin Soul


Last month was governed by the Moon of Leo, a sign of self-affirmation, very much in the wave of the dictates of YHWH, the Name of Being whose vibration can be dangerous, since it manifests all that is asked for, all one thinks and feels unconsciously: "I am ... I want ... I feel ...".

Today, day 10th of Elul (year 5777 in the present World-Age), it makes sense to reflect on its New Moon sign (mazal in Hebrew), which is Virgo, the Virgin, the Spirit Mother womb that keeps the seed of our true Being or individual soul, whose poles are the virgin Daughter of pure heart and her husband, the Divine Son or Higher Mind.

This month's Mazal (sign) teaches about letting go of the old and serving others, to avoid being the same, not wanting to fall into the same mistakes over and over again, since that is really the burning hell, the Gehena, where the rubbish was burned in Jerusalem.

The change implies incarnating the divine soul, both its virgin conscience and its higher mind, emptied of prejudices and old charges.

Virgo is a sign that implies a yearning to give Light and bring blessing with service and care for others.

And as the Zohar says, the greatest act of charity or tzedakah is to reveal the secrets of heaven, for they feed the Soul, which cares for the body and guides us on the straight paths of fulfillment.

So here we have some of them, for those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (tzedakah):

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: Behold, a Maiden (Almah in Hebrew) shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel (Isaiah 7:14)

The virgin (Betulah) will conceive and bear a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means "God with us" (Matthew 1:23).

As we see, Isaiah used the term Maiden (Almah), while in the Aramaic and Hebrew version of the Gospels, Matthew makes use of Betualh, who is a Virgin.

But is there a difference? Not really, if we read from the Soul´s viewpoint and not from the carnal mind.

In the Tetragrammaton, the Virgin Mother and her Daughter, who is our Neshemá or Divine Soul, appear as the two Hei: YHWH

Meanwhile, in Christian imagery these are symbolized by Miriam/Mary, wife of Yosef and the Magdalene.

And although their nature of humility and service is essentially the same, in our plane the soul´s vibration remains asleep and trapped into the world of darkness, as it happened to Magdalene, who was possessed by seven demons, until she was released by the Messiah (Luke 8:2).

In the Hebrew Kabbalah this is known as the Exile of the Shejina, the feneminine dimension of Divinity.

Our virgin Soul is also the Sleeping Maiden waiting for the kiss of the Prince or the appearance of the Messiah, the Mashiaj, whose permutation Yesh Moach means: there is understanding.

So how to kiss and wake her up?

In the first place one must listen to the Word properly, and then acquire understanding or reason (binah). Actually, in the Tree of Life, the first Hei is are associated with the Neshama or Divine Soul and Binah, the intelligence that seeks and knows the why of things, being the consort of intuitive Wisdom (Jokma).

And here, understanding means seeing that Elul is a "month of repentance," or rather "return," which is the meaning of Elul and of "teshubah".

Kabbalistically speaking teshuba is teshub Hei, return to the Hei, to the divine Soul.

Therefore, to perform teshubá is not merely being submerged into a river, sea or mikvé as a baptismal act or purifying ritual, nor confess sins before a priest. Actually, mechanically performed rites can easily cancel the conscience of believers who do not seek for understanding but just sleeping well, and with a full stomach, if possible.

Returning to the divine soul and approaching the Divine Being has to do with devoting time to the study and meditation of the Word, collecting oneself in silence to get in touch with the conscience of the divine Soul, whose embryo needs to be nourished by the Word and the understanding of it.

Otherwise the Soul can never develop its reason (binah) and be born from the womb of her Mother in this physical world. 

And this also enteils there would be no "salvation of the personality (lower soul or nefesh) either.

The divine soul is spirit and is always safe, although it needs to manifest its Light.

On the other hand, the personal soul or nefesh is still pasture for the Underworld and the "second death" (Revelation 20: 12-15), since it is more lost than a duck in a parking lot and is shaken by dark forces that it does not understand.

His only hope of purification and salvation is to be healed by the divine soul, which is awakened or activated by the Word and the longing to understand the Messiah/Christ´s Mind.

Only a soul boiling with love and longing for understanding expresses true "repentance," without falling into past mistakes.

The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead (Proverbs 21:16). 

Contrary to the pagan and carnal belief with which Churchianity is imbued, no one is born with an already developed immortal Soul, not even with its seed. Likewise, believing in an external Savior is not equivalent to having a personal soul either. 

As the Messiah taught:

he who is not born of water and the Spirit cannot enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:5)

Certainly, one is born of water by listening to and trusting the Word.

Faith comes from listening, and listening by the Word of the Messiah (Romans 10:17).

For you have been born again, not of a corruptible seed (of the soul), but of one that is incorruptible, that is, by the word of God that lives and abides (1 Peter 1:23).

But this is only the first step, symbolized by Yojanan/ John's Baptism:

I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who comes after me will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire (Matthew 3:11).

Yojanan baptized with the baptism of repentance (Acts 19: 4)

Repentance, that is, return, teshubá.

And as the Gospels indicate with the passage on the Baptism of the Messiah facilitated by Yojanan, this is followed by 40 days of temptation in the wilderness, which are also symbolized by the 40 days from Elul to Yom Kippur, the Feast of Atonement that involves sacrificing a goat, i.e, the inner satanic Ego.

Elul is therefore a month of "temptation", which is only overcome by sweeping away the "old mind".

Returning to the divine Soul has also been known since the time of Moses and Aaron as receiving the circumcision of the heart, since the people of Israel were circumcised twice, physically and spiritually:

In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of flesh in the circumcision of Christ (Colossians 2:11).

And circumcision of the heart is mind renewal:

Do not be conformed to this age [of darkness], but be transformed by the renewing of your understanding (Romans 12: 2).

Precisely, it is this renewal what eventually brings a baptism of Spirit (Pentecost) with which the baby-soul becomes a divine child-soul that is guided by the Wisdom of the Word until it expands enough to save the personality completely and be fully born from the Spirit.

However, the New Testament also speaks of the pregnant Virgin, persecuted by the Dragon, symbolizing a divine soul about to be born while threatened by dark forces that try to abort its developemt.

she was pregnant, and cried out, in childbirth and with childbirth (Rev. 12: 2).

Being fully born of the Spirit is a feat that very few have achieved, although it is the only thing that guarantees the "resurrection in Life", with the salvation of the "personal soul", which is incorporated into the Neshama, thus completing the Name (YHWH).

In the Gospels such higher birth is symbolized by the Transfiguration of the Messiah.

But for now, fortunate are those who began to experience birthpangs or are pregnant virgins carrying good lamps with oil, which in Hebrew is shemen, whose gematria relates to Neshema, the divine Soul and its understanding.

Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to receive the bridegroom (Matthew 25).

Unfortunately, in general the House of Judah (Jews) and the House of Ephraim (Christians) still do not seem to realize what is at stake.

Both houses of Israel have only begun to unite in those who study the kabbalistic roots of the Torah and the Gospels.

However, in general, the false Judah, i.e Judas the traitor, and the Congregation of the Called out, i.e. the Ekklesia (Church), are still one of the greatest sources of "spiritual abortions".

There are too many "soul embryos" that are never born due to the spiritual prostitution so promoted by institutional religion.

And this delays the "regeneration of the Fallen Soul of Adam," promoting the Gilgul or Wheel of Suffering, which returns generation after generation, with the same repetitive errors and vices.

But it is time to return to the Source.

So, virgins, open your ears and get down to work, that a new Ark lies on the troubled waters of this world. The present deluge of darkness is not for jokes.

As for the prostitutes (lost
sheep of Israel) not forget the words of Messiah to the Pharisees:

prostitutes will precede you in the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 21:31)
Of course, after they wake up once and for all.

Living in the Name of Being

God said to Moses, “ I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘ I AM has sent me to you’ (Exodus 3:15)

Very easy is to say "I am this or that", "I love", "I wish", "I make"...

Where do this life and capacity come from?

Is there not a hidden arrogance and violence in the pronoun "I" that claims beingness, life, will and creation for itself?

The voice of the Ego could be attributed to those famous prophetic word:

I am the Lord [YHWH, Word-Emanation of Supreme Being] and there is no other; apart from me there is no God [Elohim]. I will gird you, though you have not known me (Isaiah 45: 5)

In these words, which everyone misunderstands, hides a great secret of the Name.

The Hebrew word Yhwh is comprised of Yah (Divine Father Word) and hawa, to exist. Therefore, Ya hawa would be the Existent Vibration or Eternal Being that causes everyting to exist. 

Actually, Jewish kabalists permutate the expression and speak of Havaya, Existence. Thus, the Divine Attribute of the Holy One is absolute existence.

Regardless of the spiritual tradition, the Holy Name has always to do with the power of Being and its creative capacity.

I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the Lord [YHWH,
Word-Emanation], who does all these things (Isaiah 45:7, ESV)

As an old Kabbalist said, it is impossible to use the Sacred Name without something happening.

Hence the warning:

You shall not take the Name of Elohim [the Word] in vain (Exodus 20:7).

And since the name given is "I am (Septuagint)/I will be (Hebrew text)" (Exodus 3:15), if one thinks and feels "I am miserable," one becomes miserable; if one thinks and feels "I am a failure", failure is assured; if one dares to think and feel "I am superior", the fall is not far. What´s more, as soon as one thinks and feels "I am God," reality makes one fall like lightning, as happened to Luci ... in the Sky with Diamonds –Lennon and MacArtney would sing.

He said to them: I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning (Luke 10).

The great cherub Lucifer, the famous Morning Star  was a type of immature ancestral Divine Mind that fell seduced by the Adversary/Satan or dividing Ego.

Now, for the sake of a future reconciliation, it was permitted to let his genes end up in Adam´s heart and later humanity, where Lucifer continues to dwell, from ancestral times, trying to use the Light of the Supreme, attemting to usurp the impossible:

How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground,... You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven…I will make myself like the Most High.’ But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit (Isaiah 14:13).

It is therefore almost a joke that carnal minds continue to seek out Lucifer and Satan outside of themselves and into "others" when both operate within. 

Many even come to consider that they are the same and not two aspects in the Fall of the Angel, who dared to say I Am, without knowing why nor how.

Therefore, who or what claims I Am, I Love, I Want inside oneself? How and with what interests?

Is it perhaps that little but tyrannical and luciferian ego who wants everything revolving around himself?

The truth is such scoundrel likes hiding. And it is not easy to convince him of how wrong he is. We can not catch him by the flap and say-with gritted teeth: "Come here son of the great b..." No, of course, that would be again the savage of "ego" in action.

Now, it is possible to realize that this "personal savage" is nothing more than a type of thought that lies constantly, being nothing more than a contraction of the Divine Attributes or Divine Name.

And without realizing that it is not by himself, but thanks to the Fullness of Love, Life and Light in the Name of the Supreme, the ego claims for himself the labels of the Name and falsifies them, as if they were his own.

Thus the ego never recognizes the Whole, but it wants protagonism and shout: I and only I am this or that. Did you hear me?

In this way he tries to impose ideas and beliefs on others, whether in the form of religion, politics, art or science.

So who will solve this mess?

Hallowed be thy Name

The Supreme is Absolute, so it
transcends all time, past, present and future, being Totally Unreachable Other.

This is why the great mystics said the Supreme is rather a Non-Being, Nothingnesss Unlimited, Ayn Sof, above even God, which is the Divine Mind-Heart-Body that comprise the Logos-Word/Emanation.

And does the Unnamable Supreme say I Am When He becomes like Nothing so everything can be?

Not even his Son, the very Word-Name, Elohim, dares to manifest I am with arrogance and parciality, like an Alpha male, for He knows the outcome. 

Aknowledging wholeness is rather a key to transcend time:

 I am the Alpha [of innocent self-ignorance] and the Omega [self-understandiung], –says YHWH Elohim–, He who is, who was and who is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1: 8)

I am the father of this universe, the mother, the support and grandfather. I am the object of knowledge, the purifier and the syllable Om (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 9)

The unconscious life is one in which we do not realize that Fullness is really to let the Divine Mind-Heart-Body live, love, forgive, accept, shine and illuminate through us, without attributing honors to itself, without "me" or "you" , but rather an "all for you". 

Give up, and know that I am Elohim [divine attributes] (Psalm 46:10)

He is your being, but you are not his
(The Cloud of Unknowing)
You who know Jalalludin,
You the One with All,
Say who I am.
Say I am You.
(Jallaludín Rumi, Persian Sufi poet, XIIIth century)

And when all things have been subdued to Him, then the Son [Yhwh] Himself will submit to Him [YHWH] who subjected all things to Him, so that God [Yhwh Elohim, divine attributes] may be all in all (1 Corinthians 15 : 28)

Being in the form [Name] of God, did not esteem to be equal to God as something to be grasped, but emptied of himself, taking the form of a servant, a fact similar to men (Philippians 2: 6).

Some say that the Supreme has no interests. But that is not entirely true, otherwise He would have not a pure Will pouring out His Fullness of Love, Life, Light and Peace into us, granting us to inhabit and manifest His Attributes/Name [YHWH], being the only thing that can free us from misery and death. 

Because there is no other Name [Love, Life, Light and Peace] under the heaven  given to men by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12).

I am the Bread of Life (John 6:35) 

I am the Light of the Kosmos (John 8:12, 9: 5)

I am the Door (John 10: 7)

I am the Good Shepherd John 10:11)

I am the Resurrection and the Life (John 11: 25-26)

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14: 6)

I am the True Vine (John 15: 1)

... If you do not believe that I am, you will die in your sins (John 8:24)

So, one must die before he dies. The shell of the ego must be broken, for ... 

So, one must die before dying; the ego-shell must be broken, for...

if the grain of wheat does not fall to the ground and die, it remains alone; But if it dies, it produces much fruit (John 12:24)

Only then can we consciously feel I love, I forgive, I thank, I live, I suffer, I enjoy, recognizing that it is really the Great Being is behind. 

It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me (Galatians 2:20). 

The Buddha-nature is in fact not the self [anatta]. For the sake of guiding sentient beings, I describe it as the Self (Atman) (Mahaparinirvana Sutra)

You need to understand that I Am,
To see that I am not,
And realize that
I am not, therefore I am
(Wei Wu Wei)

Feeling I am Full and One with the All Being is a moment of recognition where there is no ego, but Unity, Ejad, with the heavenly Father (Ayn Sof Aur) and with the Grandfather (Ayn Sof)

I and the Father are One (John 10:30) 

Regardless of culture, language, or religious creed, the Name of the Holy One was, is and will always be Fullness in any circumstance: safe shelter for the homeless, deep consolation for the heartless, path of light for the lost ones, Father for the orphan, harmony for the musician... 

Perhaps for this reason the Hebrew Torah text expressed that the Name of Being is literally a potential state: 

I will be who I will be (Exodus 3:14).

And since the Name encompasses past, present and future, it expresses itself as Brahma / Visnu / Shiva, Krishna, YHWH, Buddha, Jesus Christ / Yahoshua, Mohammad, Allah ... 

All ephemeral labels describing partial moments of a a Great Revelation: the Infinite that hides and discovers itself in its Divine Hide. 

What else can be said when everything has already been said? He that has ears let him hear. 

As for the brutish Ego cazurro, let it get tired of moving in circles. 

Meanwhile, here comes another Indian recital of "Divine Name attributes" contained in the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 7:

6.All life-enabled things gain their life from this life. And I am the beginning and the end of all things that exist. 

7. In all this immense universe there is nothing that is superior to Me. I am the support of all worlds, just as the thread holds together all the pearls of the necklace. 

8. I am the flavor of the Living Waters, I am the Light of the Moon and the Sun. I am the Holy Name, the sacred word of the Vedas. I am the sound of silence; The strength of men. 

9. I am the pure fragrance of the earth. I am the glow of fire. I am the life of all living creatures, and austerity in those who strengthen their souls. 

10. I am, and always have been, the seed of eternal life. I am the intelligence of the intelligent. I am the beauty of beauty.

Light of The Inner Kosmos

I am the Light of the Kosmos/Olam (John 8:12)

You are the Light of the Kosmos/Olam (Mt 5:14)

The vision changes radically when the Gospels are translated without the deceptive romanized ideas.

In this case, why translate "world" when the text says "kosmou" and the word "mundi" did not exist in the first two centuries?

The term "World" is imprecise and contains the prefix Mun-, which alludes to the Moon, Mond (German), and therefore to the dark astral light that rules the world, giving rise to external religion and politics. Interestingly, the word for "world"
in French is Mond, which is Luna in German.

What a crazy world, isn´t it?

But what else can we be expected when everything is governed by mechanical energies of stars, planets and satellites? Whoever has never behaved as a damn lunatic, let him throw the first stone.

Now, who should command in us, the light of the stars or the deeper Light of Conscience? Do we live with star or exist in tar?

The Ancient Teaching is very clear in this respect.

The term Kosmos was coined by the Pythagoreans in the sixth century BC and does not allude to what we now understand as "world" or physical universe, but to an ordered whole illumined by the Light of Divine Conscience, which transcends the false electromagnetic light of stars and planets, "light of the world," which is only simulation of Light, mere luminous garments of being, not Being itself.

Curiously, that is also one of the meanings of Olam, which in Hebrew refers to the Eternal Reality, the domain of the immortal Universe.

This should not be surprising, since the Gospels were written by Hebrew-speaking authors, as deduced from their strange syntactic composition.

And according to tradition, Abraham understood the unicity of the Olam/Kosmos by aligning his seven energetic centers, ruled by the 7 planets:

Abraham planted a tamarisk in Baar Sheba (Seven Wells) and there he invoked the Name of Eternal Omnireality (Yhwh El Olam) - Genesis 21:33

The same Kabbalistic meaning of Yisrael or Israel is to go straight to Him, Yashar El, i.e the Most High [El Elyon], transcending the stellar energies that govern the psycho-physical body.

Thus, Israel can also be read astrotheologically as Isis-Ra-El, which are the electromagnetic energies of the Moon, the Sun and the planets, especially Saturn, which the Canaanites called El.

That is why in Genesis 32 we read that Jacob, the prototype of the Messiah, was called Israel after he overcame in his struggle with a strange "man", who represents Elohim, the forces of Nature, framed in the Twelve Astral Signs And the Four Creatures or quadrants of the Kosmos which Ezekiel beheld as wheels within wheels.

And Jacob/Israel called
the place of strife, Peniel, because it takes place with the Eye of Consciousness, on the Pineal Gland.

The Sun, the Moon and the planets govern twelve angles of light or angels, the cosmo-psychological principles that must be overcome by means of the reunion and unification/integration, reaching thus the central point, the thirteenth sign, reserved for the Universal Son or Primordial Adam.

13 is the number of Death and Resurrection, whose gematric value is the Hebrew term Ejad, Oneness, like Ahaba, Love, and the Greek word Xristos (1480 = 13).

The numbers 12, 13 and 14 are repeated in numerous traditions, alluding to varying degrees of the scheme of the inner kosmos.

For example, in various mythologies the Son's body is dismembered, rebuilt and resurrected, as with Osiris, who was cut by Set (Satan) into 14 pieces and reconstituted in Horus, or as Yahshua / Jesus Christ, who gave his body/bread to twelve Apostles before dying and resurrecting, giving the first testimony to the Virgin Magdalene before ascending to the Father.

Here Osiris alludes to the Adam that fell in the Garden of Eden, Prometheus, that was broken into the souls of the humanity.

On the other hand, Yahshua is a clear allusion to the Primordial Adam who incarnated to recover and redeem those fragments or sparks of his body, gathering and reconciling all the world in Olam/Kosmos, being the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1), the final purpose of All.

We see how the mythological accounts refer to different stages of the Opus Kosmicum, which begin with the "gathering of the internal egos", to integrate them into the Universal Self.

Thus David gathered the twelve (psychological) tribes of Israel and begat Solomon, the union of the Sun-Conscience and the Ego-Moon (Imagination forces).

But he did not go any further, for he was a womanizer, like Solomon, whose temple was destroyed twice.

And Ulysses thrust the twelve false pretenders of his wife Penelope with his bow, but this model of divine hero also failed, being too violent.

On the contrary, Yahshua showed how to harmonize the Kosmos by unmasking Satan
during the three temptations of the Ego and opening an inner space, performing a self-emptying (Philippians 2), like the Father, who emptied himself to make space for Creation.

It somehow reminds the Way of Buddhahood and is reflected geometrically, since the cube or material world has 12 sides and is contained in the space of Being, which makes the aspect 13, plus the inner space that would be the 14.

Integrating the psycho-astral energies takes place in the Body but from the inner space of the Daughter or the Virgin Soul (Neshama), which must unite with her husband, the Son's Mind or Spirit of Life (Haya).
Going into more detail, the Work begins by facing the Alfa Ego or chief feature, pointed by the Solar sign and its lunar ascendant, represented by the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Once we tackle the main feature, we can proceed to integrate the remaining ten lost tribes of the psyche.

For those interested, the such is the theme in Mark´s Gospel, which goes through the twelve signs.

Furthermore, the 12 aspects of the astral/psychological world are subdivided into 3 deacons each (for body, emotion and mind), giving rise to 36 positive aspects, which together with 36 negative ones make the 72 fragments of the ego, represented by the 72 genii of cabala, the 72 names of God, 72 guests in the banquet where Osiris is betrayed, 72 apostles sent by Yahshua/Jesus Christ, and the Tetragrammaton: 


10 + 15 + 21 + 26 = 72

72 are the psychological angels and demons that each one must face and transcend, joining with the invisible plane where everything is integrated into the Omnirreality or YHWH, making the 144, the number written on the forehead of those who are part of the Tree of Life, according to the Book of Revelation.
On the contrary, worshipig these energies is to be blinded by them, as it happens in ordinary life and the external dimension of religion and politics, with  the idolatry of fixed rules, idol worship, prostration before statues and leaders, the confusion of the visible and tangible, the Golden Calf.

In ancient times sacred rituals could be more or less illuminating, depending on the participant's understanding.

For instance, the cult of the goddess Isis in Egypt could be either a reminder of the influence of the Moon, which receives all the astral influences and projects them towards the earth, governing the biological cycles, or a cult of dark forces that block Consciousness and Conscience.

Far from being a dead cult, the cult of lunar Isis is as alive as ever, for it is still venerated in old temples and hermitages dedicated to the Virgin Mary, which replaced pagan goddesses with the advent of the Roman religion, as evidenced by the symbols associated with it. They just changed their names.

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the Sun, with the Moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of Twelve Stars (Revelation 12)

For those who appreciate the Mazzarot or Zodiac, the true Virgin alludes to the interior space of the Virgin Conscience where we leave the influence of the Moon, ceasing to be starry lunatics, dwelling in silent serenity, being able to understand the twelve psychological signs/patterns, which must be unified in the Higher Self or Universal Son.

King David was able to reunite the twelve tribes, and even pointed out the last feat:

The Lord [Yhwh] said to my Master [Adony]: Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool (Psalm 110: 1)

He just failed to wait and mock all enemies, beginning with his "selfish emotions." Not by chance David means "beloved", that is to say, "pampered."

Thus, our true enemies are not men or beasts, but astral intelligences, mechanical forces, and systems of distorted ideas that govern society:

For we have no strife against blood and flesh, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12)

Beware therefore the influences of the Astral Empire. It is useless to reject or ignore them. These must be unmasked and used as an engine, for without such a system of opposition there is no possible spiritual evolution. Everything is part of Reality, as the Shema states:

Listen Israel, the attributes of Being [Yhwh Elohim] and Eternal Omnireality [YHWH] are oneness (Deut 6: 4)

And returning to the phrase of the Master:

You are the Light of Kosmos / Olam

He also alludes to Olam HaBa, better known as the World to Come, where everything has been restored to his Original Life and Harmony, after what is known as Tikun Olam or Repair of the World, which we are currently carrying out, illuminating darkness.

In Him was Life, and Life was the Light of men. And the Light in the darkness shines; but the darkness did not comprehend it (John 1: 4-5)

Even so, the true Light of the Kosmos, the Light of the Olam, is present in the light of the world, unifying each element.

O Son of Kunti [Arjuna], I am the taste of water, the light of the sun and the moon, the syllable Om in the Vedic mantras, the sound in the ether and the ability in man (Bhagavad Gita 7: 8)
In conclusion, with the true Light we first integrate our fragmented ego-consciousness, then we are united in the Higher Self, the Son, who finally unifies us with the Supreme.

Let us then aspire to live in serene unicity, seeking the Love that eliminates separateness in spaciousness.

Unveiling the Trinity

 Celtic Knot. Co.Sligo, Ireland

Al the great teachings have something about the trinity, each with its own nuances, but the two most significant are: 

1) The Hebrew-Christian view speaks of the creative Word of YHWH, which encompasses Father´s Will, the Son´s or Cosmic Self-Conscience, and Holy Spirit or Love that connects them both, as we will see. 

2) And Brahmanism, a revelation on a different level, attributes the Creation to the AUM Sound, whose letters allude to Brahma or Creative Breath, Shiva or Destroying Force and Visnu or Sustaining Force.

But in the case of the Teaching of Yeshua/Jesus, the Trinity becomes unique and implicit in numerous passages that were never fully explained:

In the beginning there was the Word [emanation of YHWH], and the Word was with God [Yhwh Elohim-Divine Powers], and the Word was God (John 1: 1)

No one has ever seen God [Yhwh Elohim-Divine Powers]; The Only Begotten God [Word-Emanation, Divine Mind], who is in the bosom of the Father, He has made him known (John 1:18).

According to the ancient Hebrew vision, the Only Begotten Son is the First Thought born in the act of Self-Conscience that the Supreme Being has when He contracts leaving a womb/space of Light where He sees Himself mirrored. And such Divine Realization aspires to be manifested and shared in all its richness. Hence the Love that emerges creates the World and incarnates inside it to redeem it from the Fall.

Holy Father, keep them in your Name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one (John 17:11)

The Name of the Father is the Son...He gave him his name...He possesses the Name; he has the Son. It is possible for the Son to be seen. The Name, however, is invisible, for it alone is the mystery of the invisible about to come to ears completely filled with it through the Father’s agency. Moreover, as for the Father, his name is not pronounced but is revealed through a son (Gospel of Truth).

Before trying to ponder on what all this means, let´s read a curious text:

At the beginning of every religion we find an affirmation of the existence of God the Word and the Word-God. One teaching says that when the world was still nothing, there were emanations, there was God the Word. God the Word is the world. God said: "Let it be so," and sent the Father and the Son. He is always sending the Father and the Son. And once He sent the Holy Spirit. 

Everything in the world obeys the Law of Three, everything existing came into being in accordance with this law. Combinations of positive and negative principles can produce new results, different from the first and the second, only if a third force comes in. If I affirm, she denies and we argue. But nothing new is created until something else is added to the discussion. Then something new arises.
Take the Ray of Creation. At the top is the Absolute, God the Word, divided into three: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

The absolute creates in accordance with the same law. only in this case all the three forces necessary to produce a new manifestation are in the absolute himself. he sends them forth from himself, emanates them.

Sometimes the three forces change their places.

the three forces or principles, issuing from the absolute, have created the whole multitude of suns, one of which is our sun. everything has emanations. the interaction of emanations produces new combinations. this refers to man, to the earth and to the microbe.

(G.I. Gurdjieff, Views from the Real World)

As the Armenian wise man realized, the Word splits into the form of the Trinity. Besides, since it emanates from a deeper realm, this reveals it proceeds from what the ancients also knew as Mother and house of the Supreme Father. After all, the Word is said to dwell in the bosom of the Father.

The term for bosom in the Greek text is kolpos, which also means womb or lap, a clue that refers to the ancient Nazarean view about the feminine or "inmanent" aspect of Divinity, which is the loving Spirit Kadosh of God (Ruach Kadosh Elohim) and its presence on earth, the divine inspiration called the Spirit of Holiness (Ruach ha Kodesh).
We see this view in the Gospel of Truth, attributed to Valentinus, carrier of Pauline theology:

Thus the Word of the Father goes forth into all, being the fruit of his heart and expression of his will. It supports all [YHWH]. It [Yahwshua/Iesous] chooses them and also takes the character of all and purifies them, causing them to return to the Father, to the Mother, Jesus of the utmost sweetness (Gospel of Truth).
The Father opens his bosom, but his bosom is the Holy Spirit. He reveals his hidden self which is his son, so that through the compassion of the Father the Aeons [eternal beings] may know him [1].

However, it is becoming popular to reject the fact that the Trinity is part of the Hebrew teaching. Some even deny the authenticity of the one passage where the Trinity is mentioned explicitly:

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name [YHWH] of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

Reading this and other passages ignoring their inspired Hebrew background has led many to interpret on the basis of subjective beliefs, either considering it an interpolation or viewing it as a perfect pretext for capturing adepts with a supposed higher "power and authority."

But the truth is that the Trinity lies in the kabalistic content of the Tetragrammaton YHWH, whose letters allude to the Father who gives the seed (Yod) of Love, which is born in a Matrix/Mother of Life (Hei), engendering a Son of Light-Conscience (Waw), born into the world within multiple human beings who are vehicles of that Life (Hei), Love, Light and Peace.

Thus, it only has three letters, YHW, being the Hei double, for it alludes to the Ruach Kadosh or Holy Spirit of God and to the Spirit of Holiness or Ruach ha Kodesh, which is its presence in the physical world, or as the Nazarenes said, the Divine Mother Of Life and the Daughter, its receptacle.

Thus, the Tetragrammaton YHWH refers to a Divine Action, the unfolding of the Divine Being in all aspects of Life, and therefore, it encompasses both the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, which are the personal roles of One Only Being or Divine Person, just as someone can be Father, Son and inspiring Musician at the same time.

It makes no sense to discuss whether they are three divine persons and one God, an old conventional dogma closer to theo-mythological images like Brahma, Shiva and Visnu. In the end, these are mere symbols meant to awake a higher understanding.

The truth is evident when translating properly the words given in Hebrew, without strange substitutions. YHWH would mean:

I am the breath of loving Life that gives loving Life.

As for the name of the Son, it is given and codified in the Torah, in the name of the successor of Moses, Joshua, translated into Greek as Iesous (Jesus), while in Hebrew it appears as Yahwshua or Yah is salvation (Yasha), since in Hebrew the letter waw is a connector, so it unites Yah (Divine Name) and Yasha (Salvation).

This gives meaning to passages such as:

And I am YHWH and apart from me there is no Savior (Isaiah 43:11).

And he will have a son and call him Jesus (Yahwshua), because He will save his people from their sins (Luke 1:21).

This Yahwshua is the stone that you builders rejected ... And in no other there is salvation (yasha), because there is no other Name under heaven given to men in which we can be saved (Acts 4:11).

But there are passages from the Torah where Iesous/Jesus appears as Yeshua or Yahwshua, which means the Divine Being (Yesh) cries for help (shua), within each human being. 

And far from being a contradiction, this would expand the meaning: 

I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language: Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? ... I then said: Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Yahwshua, whom you persecute (Acts 26: 14-15) 

Obviously, all this does not mean one should cry out and plead pronoucing the name Yahwshua, or Jesus, as many parrots do. One rather must aknowledge that Name within, incarnating a state of Being, entering the body of Yahwshua which emanates the Love, Life, Light and Peace from the Father. 

The process begins by seeing and recognizing first the false imperfect nature –the so-called "body of sin"–, refusing to feed it so that it dies of starvation. And in any case aknowledge all is reconciled in the new nature. 

This also involves nourishing the new nature with study of the Word to understand and with the inner labor of planting conscious love into every experience, rather than with pious labors or hard spiritual works that do not necessarily transform, since it is possible to do just works for wrong reasons and in a purely external or selfish way. The righteous works neither perfect nor justify nor save anyone, but can only be further evidence of the Truth that dwells within. 

The message of the Master was clear: 

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14) 

put on the Lord Yahwshua/Jesus Christ, and do not think of providing for the lusts of the flesh (Romans 13:14).

put on the new man, made in the image of God (Ephesians 4:24 ).

This means establishing a direct relationship with the Oneness (Ejad) in the Trinity, a vision implicit in several passages: 

 And this is eternal life: that they know you, the only True God, and to Jesus Christ [Yahwsha ha Mashiaj], whom you have sent...Father, glorify me at your side, with that glory I had with you before the world was... But I pray not only for these [followers that you gave me], but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one; as you, O Father, in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; That the world may believe that thou hast sent me (John 17: 3-21 KJV).  

In the same way the Father contracts to open the space  for the Son and Creation, the Son does the same to bring back Creation to its source, being thus model for humanity:

though He [Yahwshua/Jesus Christ] was in the form [YHWH] of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2: 6-7 ).

By detaching from the lies of the physical world, allowing the loving emanations of the Father into the World, souls of regenerated humanity live resting in the serene space of the Son, just as the Son rests in the bosom of the Father (John 1:18), as cells of a great Cosmic Loving Heart-Mind. And all thanks to the unitive and reconciling power, the Holy Spirit. 

 As Raimon Panikkar said, the Trinity is relationship. But relationship of what? Between Father and Son, which contains the Universe and regenerated humanity, the true Creation: 

 our communion is with the Father and with his Son Yahwshua/Jesus Christ. We write these things to you so that our joy may be complete (1 John 1: 3-4). 

For us, however, there is only one God, the Father, from whom all things proceed, and we are to him; and a Lord, Yahwshua/Jesus Christ, through whom are all things (1 Corinthians 8: 6). 

God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself (2 Corinthians 5:19 NKJV).

And for the very fact that we are reconciled with God through the Holy Spirit, also called the Gift of God, some think that it is quite clear that the Holy Spirit is the Love of God, because we are not reconciled with God but through love, by which we are also called sons (Saint Agoustin, De fide et symbolo IX, 19; PL 40, 191-192)

The Holy Spirit is symbolically represented in the Scriptures as much as the Mother or Heavenly Jerusalem (Galatians 4:26) and as the Daughter, the Community of Souls that harbor the longing and love of the Shekhinah, the promised Bride of the Son. 

Hence the spiritual Congregation should not be confused with stone churches or with the various carnal congregations/churches, whose members do not differ from other ideological groups and in many cases are far from showing love for the divine. 

To be part of true spiritual Congregation is to be part of the Divine Trinity and it depends on an inner fact, a Faith that derives from an experience: 

But the fruit of the Spirit (Ruach, Divine Mother) is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, self-control; against such things there is no law (Galatians 5:22). 

 These fruits indicate that one has received and matured in the Holy Spirit, which enables one to marry/unite with the Mind of the Messiah, which leads to a deeper development of Wisdom (Jokmah), Understanding (Binah) and Knowledge (Da'at). 

And in such union there is complete liberation, without the need of torments nor useless reincarnations that only lead to the repetition of the world madness. 

Blessed are the dead who hereafter die in the Lord (Yahwsha) (Revelation 14:13).

I am the Vine and you are the branches (John 15: 5). 

And Paul, as good cabalist, called him Messiah Yahwshua or Christ Jesus:

For there is one God, and also one Mediator between God and men, the Man/Adam Yahwshua/Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2: 5) 

And the Name of the Word, Yahwsha/Christ Jesus became Jesus Christ:

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14)

Of course, all this is based on Genesis, kabalistic code par excellence, and other passages: 

At first God [Elohim Alef Taf] created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1: 1). 

 And Elohim said: let us make Adam in our image and likeness (Genesis 1:26) 

 He [Yahwshua/Christ Jesus] is the image [model] of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation (Colossians 1:15).

By the Word [dabar] of the Lord [YHWH] the heavens were made, and all his army by the breath of his mouth (Psalm 33:6). 

All things were made through Him [the Word], and without Him nothing made was made (John 1: 3).

All the fullness of the Deity resides bodily in Him, and you are made complete in Him, who is the head above all power and authority (Colossians 2: 8-10). 

Not long ago Pope Francis manifested something that begins very well, but ends with something that gives rise to confusion:

I believe in God - not a Catholic God; there is no Catholic God. There is God, and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation. Jesus is my teacher and my shepherd, but God the Father, Abba, is the Light and the Creator. This is my being. 

According to what we have verified, Yahwshua/Jesus Christ is the name given by the apostles to the incarnation of the Word or Primordial Adam. However, according to the prophets, the Supreme Being cannot incarnate on earth: 

But will God really dwell on the earth? Behold, the heavens and the heavens of heaven can not contain thee, how much less this house which I have built (1 Kings 8:27).

The great misunderstanding derives from the fact that the three attributes or personal functions of the Primordial Adam / YHWH, known as Elohim (powers), are translated in the Bible as "God", a Greco-Latin word tremendously confusing, since by God most people understand the Supreme Being, and not the attributes of the Universal Mind or God the Word, which is the first divine manifestation, result of the concealment (tzimtzum) of the Supreme, which is itself ineffable, without form and without limit, Ayn Sof. 

Perhaps that is why Yahwshua/Jesus distinguished between the Supreme Father (Ayn Sof), whom he called simply My Father, and the Father who is in the heavens (Matthew 6), which was his spirit, since Jesus Christ was Primordial Adam's earthly reflection.

 In the first century, the Jewish theologian Philo of Alexandria, taking the term Logos of Heraclitus and some notions of Plato, stated that the Logos, the Reason or Divine Word is the Mediator between the Supreme God and humanity, and therefore also the model, since the Supreme does not even have an image:

 ... the shadow of God is his Logos, which he used as an instrument when he made the world (Philo, Allegorical Interpretations, III, 96).... nothing mortal could be formed in the image of the Supreme Father of the Universe, but only on the basis of the pattern of the second deity, who is the Logos of the Supreme Being (Philo of Alexandria, Questions and Answers on Genesis II: 62)
That is to say, the Logos, as agent of Creation, was also called the Father, something Philip points out in his Gospel, as Jewish Kabbalists also do, distinguishing him from the Grandfather or Ancient of the Days that appears in Daniel 7. 

The Hellenized Jewish vision of Philo is undoubtedly behind the conceptual background at the beginning of the Gospel of Yojanan: 

In the beginning was the Word [Dabar/Logos], and the Word was in God  [Yhwh Elohim] and the Word was God [Yhwh Elohim]. He [Emanation-Word] was in the beginning with God [Yhwh Elohim]. Through Him, God made all things (John 1: 1). 

Everything is there in front for those who do their homework and do not allow themselves to be driven by dogmas or hatred for trinitarian visions.

 It is true that there are only two explicit references to the trinity in the New Testament, and one of them is a scandalous interpolation of the Roman church, which due to fear and perhaps shame is already encouraged to suppress it from recent Bibles, although it is still present in the most classic ones [2]: 

For there are three witnesses in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one (1 John 5: 7).

 It must be recognized, however, that this false passage is not without ingenuity, like all good ecclesiastical machinations.

 In contrast, a great clue about the Trinity appears in the dismembered passage where the tare was grafted [3] 

Well translated from Greek, the passage is a key to understanding what the Teaching calls "types", a perfect kabalistic conundrum:

 the Spirit is the one who bears witness, because the Spirit is the truth. And three are the witnesses, the spirit, the water and the blood, and the three are in one (1 John 5: 7) 

As a last clue, these three witnesses have to do with the body, soul and spirit of the Primordial Adam, which should be the seal of our body, soul and spirit. 

Any misalignment on these three levels will only make us incomplete, depriving us of the rest and liberation that it is offered to us. 

 So we should remember that: our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Yahwshua. We write these things to you so that our joy may be complete (1 John 1: 3-4).
