Weak was the light of the earth that night, great was the light of Heaven.
Great was the flame of love in the heart of the Nazarene, great was the longing for the light in the heart of the Pharisee.
The following excerpt is from a book The Flight of the Feathered Serpent, which describes a meeting of Jesus and Nicodemus, supposedly described by Judas Iscariot. One of the Pharisees whom Jesus encountered in his life was Nicodemus. According to narrations, Nicodemus was not fanatical and close minded as many other Pharisees of the time, but was searching for truth and had strong longing for the Spirit. At the time, Judas was Nicodemus’s disciple, but after that meeting Nicodemus has sent Judas to go and study from Jesus, realizing that he is a much greater teacher who actually knows about the spiritual matters and how to reach salvation.

But in order to do that, first the serpent needs to be lifted up in the wilderness (the Kundalini serpent raised amidst the chaos of the egos). According to the teachings of Samael Aun Weor, to be born again is to create the higher bodies in which higher parts of ones own Monad are incarnated. But in order to be born anew, one first needs to die, and this refers to the death of the inner defects (egos).

“And there was a man amongst the Pharisees whose name was Nicodemus, Prince of the Jews. Maya was his lineage, Maya was his heart, his thoughts were from the Mayab, they weren’t thoughts of clay, and he wept living tears. And he was austere in virtue in order to increase the treasures of the Lord and he tried to be just as his longing to make his faith living, was consuming him. Continue reading
