Aztec Christic Magic: Huehueteotl
The teachings of the Nahua Masters (Tlamatinime) have many points of contact with the Jewish Sepher Yetzirah. The duality of the Ain Soph and its ten Sephiroth is described within the thirty-two paths of wisdom of the Sepher Yetzirah. In chapter three, we talked about the spinal medulla and about the Tree of Life in the human organism; now as a reference, we will refer to this tree of wisdom, to the ten Sephiroth that, with their twenty-two creative, major arcana (letters, sounds, and numbers), the Logos formed the universe.
All of creation emanates from the Ain Soph, but creation, in essence and in potency, is not equal to the Ain Soph. The Ain Soph irradiates an intelligence, a power by means of its divine, uncreated light. An intelligence, a power, that if originally participates in the perfection and infinitude of its own creed, has a finite aspect because it is derived from itself. Unto this first spiritual emanation of the Ain Soph, the Kabbalah gives the name the ineffable Ancient of Days, who is the Being of our Being, the Father/Mother within us.
The Nahuas called this first spiritual emanation “Huehueteotl,” the Father of Gods and human beings, the Old God, the first and last synthesis of our Being. The Ancient of Days lives in the depths of the consciousness of every man and every woman. The hair of the Ancient of Days has thirteen ringlets.
If we add the two digits of the number thirteen together, we will have 1 + 3 = 4. One is the masculine principle, fire; two is the feminine principle, water; three is the Son of creation, plus the unity of life equals four. This is the holy Tetragrammaton. This is the name of the Eternal One, Iod Hei Vav Hei: יהוה.
The Ancient of Days is the goodness of goodness, infinite mercy, the occult of the occult. The mantra PANDER followed by meditation allows us to reach HIM.
The Ain Soph, not being able to express itself in the limited physical plane, does it through its “ten Sephiroth.” Its exhalation is called a Cosmic Day, and its inhalation is called a Cosmic Night. During the Cosmic Night, the universe is disintegrated within the Ain Soph, then the universe only exists in its mind and in the minds of its Gods. The universe that exists in the mind of it and in the mind of Them is only objective within the Abstract Absolute Space. A strange evolution that not even the Gods or the human beings know about exists within the Ain Soph.
Much beyond the Innermost, we find the Logos or Christ; much beyond the Christ, we find the ineffable Ancient of Days; and much beyond the ineffable Ancient of Days is the Ain Soph or the Absolute.
The Absolute is the Being of all Beings. The Absolute is that which is, that which always has been, and which always shall be. The Absolute is expressed as absolute, abstract movement and repose. The Absolute is the cause of the Spirit and of matter, but it is neither Spirit nor matter. It is beyond thought and action, much beyond sound, beyond silence, and beyond the senses.
The Absolute is beyond time, number, measurement, weight, and quality. It is beyond form, fire, light, and darkness. Nonetheless, the Absolute is the fire and the uncreated light. The Absolute has three aspects: (1) the unmanifested, (2) the spirit of life which animates every being, and (3) the chaotic, inodorous, atomic seminal, etc., matter. Its ten Sephiroth emanate from an infinite objectivity towards an infinite subjectivity.
The universe shook with terror when the aurora of the new Cosmic Day was announced. Then, a strange and frightful twilight emerged from within the consciousness of the Gods and human beings, and the uncreated light began to withdraw from their consciousness. Thereafter, Gods and humans wept like children before the aurora of the great Cosmic Day... Then, the Causal Logos reminded the Gods and human beings about their Karmic debts; thus, the pilgrimage of the human being started, sojourning from one world into the other, until they reached the Earth, where presently they live, submitted to the wheel of births and deaths until they learn how to live governed by the law of love.
The universe emerged from within the bosom of the Absolute, and the uncreated light sank into a nostalgic sunset. This is how Gods and humans descended from within the shadows of the Universe. The sacrifice was consummated, and the Kabbalah registered in its major Arcanum 12. If we add the number twelve in itself, it gives us three. One is the masculine principle, the fire. Two is the feminine principle, the water, the semen. Three is the universe, the Son. The present Cosmic Day is symbolized by a blue pelican that opens its chest with its beak in order to devour its own guts, from which all creation sprouted.
We spoke about the seven bodies of the human being in the former chapters. Six of these bodies serve the human being so that he can manifest himself within each one of the parallel universes beyond the “fourth dimension”: Ethereal, Astral, Mental, Causal, of the consciousness, of the Innermost. These parallel universes (planes) are atmospheric (atomic) regions, worlds which penetrate and co-penetrate without confusion. The six bodies are made from the substance of each one of these planes, which are invisible for the retina of the physical eye of the human being, and likewise, they penetrate and co-penetrate without confusion. The fourth dimension exists in the mind of the human being, and only the individual development of his consciousness grants him the possibility to act consciously, at will, within the supersensible worlds, which are governed by divine intelligences.
The face of Tonatiuh in the Aztec calendar is the face of Ometecuhtli, Omecihuatl, Lord and Lady of duality, God of life, love and generation. He is enclosed by two concentric circles; around these circles are four squares which are within two other concentric circles (the Unmanifested Absolute, Ipalnemoani), containing everything: Quetzalcoatl’s feline paws tearing human hearts, the Wind’s sun (or 4 Ehecatl), the Fire’s sun (or 4 Quiahuitl), the Water’s sun (or 4 Atl), the Jaguar’s sun (or 4 Ocelotl) and the Movement’s sun (or 4 Ollin), the East and the West, the North and the South, the twenty days of the month, etc. This explains why the Nahuas venerated the Sun and the dual significance that the numbers had among them.
In the former chapter, we left the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit making the lotus of your prostatic (uterine) chakra spin from left to right (clockwise). Now, feel and see with your imagination that the fire continues descending and reaches the coccygeal ganglion of your chakra Muladhara, and makes this marvelous lotus of four petals (of a red-dirty color), that you have in such ganglion, spin always from left to right. See the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit with a radiant luminosity, irradiating fire throughout all of your seven principal chakras which rotate upon themselves as fiery lotus flowers whose stalks sprout from your vertebral column.
