The Three Traitors
In the profound inner work, within the sphere of the strictest psychological self-observation, we are to directly experience all of the cosmic drama.
The Intimate Christ has to eliminate all of the undesirable elements which we carry within.
The multiple psychic aggregates within our psychological depths scream for the crucifixion of the Innermost Lord.
Without a question, each of us carries three traitors within our psyches: Judas, the demon of desire; Pilate, the demon of the mind; and Caiaphas, the demon of evil will.
These three traitors crucify the Lord of Perfections in the very depths of our Soul.
This has to do with the three specific types of fundamental inhuman elements in the cosmic drama.
Without a doubt, this drama has always been endured secretly in the depths of the supreme consciousness of the Being.
The cosmic drama is not the exclusive property of the great Kabir Jesus, as is always supposed by learned ignoramuses.
Initiates throughout the ages, Masters of all times had to undergo the cosmic drama within themselves, in the here and now.
However, Jesus the great Kabir had the courage to perform such an intimate drama publicly, in the street, and in broad daylight. He did this in order to bring out into the open the significance of Initiation for all human beings, without distinction of race, sex, caste, or color.
It is wonderful that we have someone who publicly taught the innermost drama for all the people of the Earth.
Not being lustful, the Intimate Christ has to eliminate from within the psychological elements of lust.
Being in himself peace and love, the Intimate Christ must eliminate from within the undesirable elements of anger.
Not being covetous, the Intimate Christ must eliminate from within the undesirable elements of greed.
Not being envious, the Intimate Christ must eliminate from within the psychic aggregates of envy.
Having perfect humility, infinite modesty, being absolute simplicity, the Intimate Christ must eliminate from within the sickening elements of pride, vanity, and conceit.
The Intimate Christ, the Word, the Logos Creator, living always in constant activity must eliminate from within us, in Himself and by Himself, the undesirable elements of inertia, laziness and stagnation.
The Lord of Perfection, accustomed as he is to fasting, to moderation, never a friend of drunkenness and voraciousness, has to eliminate the abominable elements of gluttony.
A strange symbiosis is that of Christ-Jesus, the Human-Christ, that rare mixture of the divine and the human, of the perfect and the imperfect, an ever constant challenge for the Logos.
Most interesting of all is that the hidden Christ is always triumphant. He is someone who constantly vanquishes darkness, is someone who eliminates the darkness from within, in the here and now.
The hidden Christ is Lord of the great rebellion: the one who has been rejected by the priests, by the elders and by the scribes of the temple.
Priests hate him, that is, they do not comprehend him. They wish that the Lord of Perfection would live exclusively in time, according to their unbreakable dogmas.
The elders, that is, the Earth dwellers, good heads of households, sensible, judicious people, abhor the Logos, the Red Christ, the Christ of the great rebellion, because he is beyond their world of habits and antiquated, reactionary, petrified customs from so many yesterdays.
The scribes of the temple, the scoundrels of the intellect abhor the Intimate Christ because he is the antithesis of the Antichrist. He is the declared enemy of all the decaying university theories which abound so widely in the markets of bodies and souls.
The three traitors mortally hate the hidden Christ and lead him to death within us and within our psychological space.
Judas, the demon of desire always exchanges the Lord for thirty pieces of silver, or better said, for liquor, money, fame, vanity, fornication, adultery, etc.
Pilate, the demon of the mind, always washes his hands, always pleads not guilty, is never at fault, constantly justifies his actions to himself and to others, seeks excuses and loopholes in order to evade his own responsibilities, etc.
Caiaphas, the demon of evil will, unceasingly betrays the Lord within ourselves. The Intimate Adored One gives him the shepherd’s staff to lead his sheep to pasture, but the cynical traitor converts the altar into a bed of pleasures, fornicates incessantly, commits adultery, sells the sacraments, etc.
These three traitors compel the adored Intimate Lord to suffer in secret without any compassion whatsoever.
Pilate forces him to put the crown of thorns upon his temples; evil “I’s” scourge him, insult him, curse him in the innermost psychological space with no mercy of any kind.
