The Three Mountains: Jerusalem
The experience of the crude, evangelical reality of the great Kabir Jesus’ magisterial entrance into Jerusalem was granted to me, thanks to the inward and upward development, the revolution and ascension, of the Fourth Venustic Serpent along the medullar canal of the mental body.
Then, I could directly verify for myself the inferior (inferno) and superior (heaven) aspects of the mental world.
Unquestionably, that great harlot of all fatalities, the great, apocalyptic whore whose number is 666, is horrifyingly devolving within the mental infernos...
Certainly, I am not some treacherous iconoclast, who, as an intellectual vandal, eagerly wants to destroy beloved longings. However, sincerely and plainly speaking, I must confess everything that I saw within those “manasic” regions of nature.
The wit of wrong reasoning appears impure within the inferior regions of the concrete planetary mind...
What I perceived with my spatial sense, within the mental infernos, has already been stated by Saint John in The Apocalypse:
The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and of thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner of vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble.
And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. - Revelation 18:12-13
I saw horrible buildings and the bedsteads of Procrustes where the great whore is incessantly fornicating.
I witnessed abominable brothels, filthy streets, movie dens where pornographic movies are exhibited, etc.
It is indispensable to pass beyond the body, the affections, and the mind if what we long for is the triumphal entrance into the Jerusalem of above (the Heaven of Mercury, and, afterwards into the world of the Spirit).
Let us now see chapter 21 verses 1 to 20 of Matthew:
And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Beth-pha-ge, unto the Mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and siting upon an ass [symbol of the mind], and colt the foal of an ass.
And the disciples went, and did as Jesus [the great Kabir] commanded them,
And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes and they set him thereon.
And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees and strawed them in the [esoteric] way.
And the multitudes that went before [on the path of the razor’s edge], and that followed [on the esoteric path], cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David:
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
And Jesus went into the temple of God [the temple that each one of us carries within] and cast out all of them that sold and bought in the temple [the merchants, the “I’s” which personify our defects of a psychological type], and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers [demons who adulterate anything that is good], and the seats of them that sold doves [devils who sell the Third Logos, who profane the Holy Spirit by making business with him, like fornicators, prostitutes, lesbians, homosexuals],
And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it into a den of thieves [thus, the mind of each person is a den of perversity].
And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them [people incapable of seeing the truth and people who cannot walk the way].
And when the chief priests and scribes [or intellectuals] saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,
And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.
Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
And when he saw a fig tree in the way [symbol of the sexual strength], he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
It is written in the Book of Splendors: Every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire.
When Adam and Eve [the paradisiacal humanity] did eat from the forbidden fruit, the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and they made themselves aprons.
Gautama, the Buddha, attained the final illumination while seated for four days and nights in profound meditation in the shadow of the fig tree.
In the ancient Egypt of the Pharaohs, the fig tree was always worshipped as a living symbol of the creative energy of the Third Logos.
Certainly, the devolving creatures of the infernal worlds are sterile fig trees that have never bore fruit.
A strange epigraph could be written about this fig tree because one of its most typical details, accompanied with certain astral oracles, is that this plant is always green and spins vertiginously.
A good friend from Jumilla told me, On the outskirts of this town, a cave of vast extension and height exists, where a fig tree grows which neither loses a leaf nor produces a fruit. There is a general belief, based upon the testimony of many who state that on the day of Saint John, at the break of dawn they have witnessed a great military cohort of specters with horses of war, richly harnessed, racing from that cave. These specter warriors were preceded by fantastic banners and galloped towards the South, where they disappeared far off into the distance, as if they were evoking some forgone historical event. (This is text taken from The Tree of the Hesperides).
Jesus, the great Gnostic priest, said:
The [philosophical] stone [sex] which the builders rejected [people of many religions], the same is become of the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof [people that will be capable of practicing Sexual Magic, dissolving the ego and sacrificing themselves for their fellowmen].
And whosoever shall fall on this stone [sex] shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. - Matthew 21:42-44
Unquestionably, only by means of the sexual fire is it possible to incinerate all of the perverse psychic aggregates that we carry within and thus enter into the Heavenly Jerusalem on Palm Sunday (see my book entitled The Mystery of the Golden Blossom).
