||10: A Throne Set in Heaven - Fourth Chapter||Explains the meaning of Chapter 4 of the Book of Revelation. Quoted from the lecture: Todayâs lecture is about the fourth chapter, which is the chapter about the Throne set in Heaven.Â This chapter, being the fourth, builds upon the themes set forward in the first three chapters.Â In the first, we were introduced to a certain level of symbols: John, as the writer of this book, symbolizes the Initiate, or the person who is working to advance on the Path of the Self-Realization of the Being.Â We were also introduced to the character of the Son of Man, who is the Intimate Christ.Â The fundamental relationship between them provides the basis upon which the entire book must be understood.Â John, as the Initiate, represents what in Gnosis is called the Human Soul, and the Human Soul is our essential Human Consciousness, which in us, in our current state, is undeveloped.Â But by applying the sciences of Kabbalah and Alchemy, the Essence of that Human Soul can be developed towards its full potential.Â John is a symbol of that.||10 12 06||Free||View In iTunes|

||08: Church of Philadelphia - Chakra Ajna||Continuing the lectures from the book of revelation, we reach the discussion of the Church of Philadelphia, which in Sanskrit is called the chakra Ajna. Lecture quote: "To understand what is written in the book of Revelation requires practical work on oneself.Â Of the seven churches, it may be said that this Church of Philadelphia is the one in which we can start to work practically in the most immediate sense, because itâs concerned with an aspect of our own psychology and physiology which any one of us can confirm, can experience.Â When we read in the book of Revelation about the Church of Philadelphia, we have to understand that this church is related to certain physiological and psychological functions that we all have within.Â And in particular, this church is related to what in modern terminology is called the âthird eye,â which is a center of perception, latent in most of humanity.Â Or in other words, it is inactive in its full sense.Â However, because we all have the capacity to perceive, according to our own conditioning, we do have the capacity to understand how this center functions.Â And to some degree we can begin to experience that and understand that. The function of this third eye, or this chakra Ajna, the Church of Philadelphia, is related closely to the endocrine system.Â This church is related most closely to the pituitary gland, which resides towards the front of the brain. The pituitary gland is closely related to the pineal gland. Of course the function of these two glands is known to a certain extent in medical science, but they do not really understand or study the true function of these glands.Â For that we have to look beyond materialistic science. In truth, we understand that we have physical senses, which we all are using right now, and these physical senses afford us the opportunity to receive certain levels of vibrations, certain kinds of phenomena that are received through these senses and are translated, delivered into the brain, so that we have a sort of interaction, or relationship, with any given phenomenon.Â So, for those of us who have the capacity to see with physical eyes, we have then the capacity to interrelate with phenomena which are transmitted to us by means of light.Â And light is a vibration of energy.Â But visible light is a particular band, or a particular vibration, of energy. It is not the extent of all light.Â It is a very narrow slice of the light which exists. If we take certain kinds of tools and use them in conjunction with our physical sight, we can extend the range of that sight.Â So for example, we have cameras and devices which can see infrared light.Â Our physical eyes unaided cannot perceive that, but with a tool we can perceive that.Â Likewise with ultraviolet light, which is a lower vibration; slower.Â Having understood that, even with those kinds of tools, we are still perceiving a very narrow range, very narrow band, of the light tha||8 12 06||Free||View In iTunes|
||07: Church of Sardis - Chakra Vishuddha||The hidden meaning of the Church of Sardis as written about in the Book of Revelation. Quoted from the lecture: Today we are going to study the fifth church, the church of Sardis, thus we are entering into the mysteries of the word of God, related with the chakra Vishuddha. Marvelous knowledge is hidden within this church or chakra which we are going to disclose as best we can in order for you to benefit from the mysteries of the word of God, because really, if you visualize the tree of life (the ten Sephiroth), you discover that the imaginary man who is placed behind the tree of life has the Sephirah Daath precisely at his throat; and remember that Daath is Hebrew for âknowledge,â which in Greek is Gnosis.||7 12 06||Free||View In iTunes|
||06: Church of Thyatira - Chakra Anahata||Quote from the lecture: Having introduced the first few churches, we have now arrived at the heart. The church Thyatira is related with the heart, which is related with the chakra Anahata (Sanskrit). Thyatira is the 4th of the 7 churches; being the 4th, we understand that it will have a relationship with the number 4, but also when we look at the structure of the Tree of Life and count from the bottom sphere up, we arrive at the 4th: We are talking about Netzach, which is related with the mind, with the mental body. When we study this church Thyatira we are really dealing with important qualities of the heart and mind.||6 12 06||Free||View In iTunes|

He gets many psychic powers, intuitional knowledge and a perfect control over his senses. He has full knowledge of the astral entities.

||02: The Son of Man||Lecture quote: "In the gospels, the great teacher Jesus refers to the Son of Man often. But he says it in a way that is very interesting. He never says âI.â He talks about the Son of Man in the sense that it is him and it is not him. He says the Son of Man will be persecuted and will rise again. He is talking about himself, but at the same time he is not talking about himself. Why is that? Because he is not the only one. The Son of Man is a symbol of how the force of the cosmic Christ expresses itself through Chokmah, the Second Logos, which is the Son, and becomes humanized in the initiate."||2 12 06||Free||View In iTunes|
||01: Introduction to the Gnostic Revelation||The first lecture in the free online course about the esoteric or hidden meanings of the famous book of Revelation or Apocalypse of John. Lecture quote: "When you read there "the revelation of Jesus Christ," most people immediately associate that with the master Aberamentho who came two thousand years ago, and gave the Venustic Initiation to John, his disciple, which of course we don't deny. It happened like that. But every book that is written Kabbalistically we have to understand internally. All the books written, related with masters, or disciples, are always a guidance for our own internal development. And as the master Samael explains in the book The Pistis Sophia Unveiled, each one of us has to develop his own individual, particular Jesus Christ. So when we read "the revelation of Jesus Christ," we have to understand directly, that it is speaking of our divine particular Nous, atom Nous. And in this case, it is referring to the Bodhisattva, in Buddhist terms."||1 12 06||Free||View In iTunes|
