By people of normal sexuality we mean those who have no sexual conflict of any kind. Sexual energy is divided into three types:
– First: the energy that is related to the reproduction of the race and the health of the physical body in general.
– Second: the energy that is related to the spheres of thought, feeling and will.
– Third: the energy that is related to the divine spirit of man.
The sexual energy is really, without any doubt, the most subtle and powerful energy that is normally produced and conducted through the organism. Everything that man is, including the three spheres of thought, feeling and will, is but the exact result of the various modifications of the sexual energy.
Due to the tremendously subtle and powerful aspect of sexual energy, the control and storage of this energy is certainly difficult. Moreover, its presence represents a source of immense power, which, if not managed, can produce a real catastrophe.
There are certain channels in the organism through which this powerful energy should normally circulate. When this energy infiltrates the delicate mechanism of other functions, then the violent result is failure. In this case, many very delicate centers of the human organism are damaged, and the individual becomes in fact an infra-sexual.
Any negative mental attitude can lead directly or indirectly to these violent and destructive catastrophes of the sexual energy. The hatred of sex, the hatred of the arcane A.Z.F. (the transmutation of sexual energy), disgust or repugnance for sex, contempt for sex, underestimation of sex, passionate jealousy, fear of sex, sexual cynicism, sexual sadism, obscenity, pornography, sexual brutality, turn the human being into a sexual infra-sexual.
Sex is the creative function by which the human being is a true god. Normal sexuality results from the full harmony and concordance of all other functions. Normal sexuality gives us the power to create healthy children, or to create in the world of art or science. Any negative mental attitude towards sex produces infiltrations of this powerful energy in other functions, causing dreadful catastrophes, whose fatal result is the infra-sexuality.
Every negative attitude of the mind forces the sexual energy and forces it to circulate through channels and systems suitable for mental, volitional or any other type of energy less powerful than the sexual one. The result is fatal, because such channels and systems, not being able to withstand the tremendous voltage of the very powerful energy of sex, heat up and melt like a wire that is too thin and fine when a high voltage electric current passes through it.
When man and woman unite sexually in perfect marriage, they are, in those moments of voluptuousness, true ineffable Gods. Man and woman, sexually united, form a perfect divine androgyne, a male-female Elohim, a terribly divine union. The two halves, separated since the dawn of life, unite for an instant in order to create. That is ineffable. Sublime. That is the stuff of paradise.
Sexual energy is dangerously volatile and explosive. During the secret act, during sexual ecstasy, the couple is surrounded by that tremendous, terribly divine energy. In those moments of supreme bliss and ardent kisses that set the depths of the soul on fire, we can retain that marvelous light in order to purify and transform ourselves absolutely. When the cup of Hermes is spilled, when the spill comes, the light of the gods withdraws, leaving the doors open for the red and sanguine light of Lucifer to enter the home. Then, the enchantment disappears and disillusionment comes. After a short time, the man and the woman begin the path of adultery, because their home has become a hell.
It is a characteristic of nature to mobilize enormous reserves of creative energy to create any cosmos. However, it uses only an infinitesimal amount of its enormous reserves to realize its creations. Thus, a man loses in one seminal ejaculation six or seven million spermatozoa; however, it takes an infinitesimal spermatozoon to engender a child.
In Lemuria no human being ejaculated semen. So couples united sexually in the temples to create. In those moments, the lunar hierarchies knew how to use a spermatozoon and an egg to create, without the need to reach orgasm and seminal ejaculation. Nobody spilled semen. The sexual act was a sacrament that only took place in the temple. The woman at that time gave birth to children without pain, and the serpent rose victorious through the medullar canal. At that time man had not left Eden; the whole of nature obeyed him and knew neither pain nor sin. It was the tenebrous Lucifers who taught man to spill semen. The original sin of our first parents was the crime of spilling semen. That is fornication. When the paradisiacal man fornicated, he then entered the kingdom of the Lucifers. The present man is luciferic.
It is absurd to spill six or seven million spermatozoa when only one is needed to create. A single spermatozoon easily escapes from the sex glands without the need to spill semen. When man returns to the point of departure, when he reestablishes the sexual system of Eden, the sacred serpent of Kundalini will rise again victorious to convert us into gods. The sexual system of Eden is normal sexuality. The Luciferic sexual system is absolutely abnormal.
Not only is fornication physical; fornication also exists in the mental and astral worlds. Those who engage in lustful conversations, those who read pornographic magazines, those who attend movie theaters where passionate erotic films are shown, expend enormous reserves of sexual energy. These poor people use the finest and most delicate material of sex, wasting it miserably in the satisfaction of their brutal mental passions.
Sexual fantasy produces impotence of the psychosexual type. This class of sick people have normal erections, they are apparently normal men, but at the instant when they are about to make the connection between the member and the vulva, the erection gives way, the phallus falls, and they are left in the most horrible state of despair. They have lived in sexual fantasy and when they really find themselves before the crude sexual reality, which has nothing to do with the fantasy, then they become confused and are not able to respond to reality as they should.
The sexual sense is formidably subtle and tremendously fast, thanks to its very fine and imponderable energy. The molecular level, where the sexual sense acts, is millions of times faster than the waves of thought. The logical mind and fantasy are stumbling blocks for the sexual sense. When the logical mind, with all its reasoning, or when the sexual fantasy, with all its erotic illusions, wants to control the sexual sense or channel it into its illusions, then it is fatally destroyed. The logical mind and the sexual fantasy destroy the sexual sense when they try to put it at their service. Psychological impotence is the most frightful tragedy that can afflict fanatical men and women or people of a purely reasoning type.
The struggle of many monks, nuns, anchorites and pseudo-yogis to bottle up sex in their religious fanaticism, to confine it in the prison of their penitences, to gag and sterilize it, to forbid it all creative manifestation, turns the fanatic into a slave of his own passions, into a slave of sex incapable of thinking of anything else but sex. These are the sex fanatics, the degenerates of infra-sexuality. These people who unload every night with disgusting nocturnal pollutions, or contract homosexual vices, or masturbate miserably. Wanting to seclude sex is as much as wanting to bottle up the sun. Such a man is the most abject slave of sex, and without any profit or true pleasure. Such a man is an unhappy sinner. Such a woman is a barren mule, a vile slave of him whom she would enslave. The enemies of the Holy Spirit (the sexual force in its sacred aspect) are people of the abyss. It would be better for such people not to have been born, or to hang a stone around their necks and throw themselves into the bottom of the sea.
The human being must learn to live sexually. The age of sex is coming, the age of the new Aquarian Age. The sexual glands are controlled by the planet Uranus, and this is the ruler of the constellation Aquarius. Thus, sexual alchemy is, in fact, the science of the new Aquarian Age. Sex magic will be officially embraced by the universities of the new Aquarian Age. Those who presume to be messengers of the new Aquarian Age, and who, nevertheless, hate the Arcanum A.Z.F., prove to satiety that they are really impostors, because the new Aquarian Age is ruled by the ruler of sex. This ruler is the planet Uranus.
Sexual energy is the finest energy in the infinite cosmos. Sexual energy can become angels or demons. The image of truth is deposited in the sexual energy. The cosmic design of the Adam Christ is deposited in sexual energy.
The Son of Man, the Superman, is born of normal sex; the Superman could never be born of the infra-sexual. The kingdom of the infra-sexual is the abyss.
The Greek poet Homer said:
“Better to be a beggar on earth, and not a king in the empire of shadows.”
That empire is the shadowy world of the infra-sexual.
