There are three stages in the second mountain, which is also called the mountain of death.
- 9 Labours of Hercules
- 8 years of Job.
|Dante being bathed in the rivers of Eunoe and Lethe in the Second Mountain|
Labours of Hercules
The most important labour is the first. It is the Intimate Christ, whom Hercules is another name for, is the one who performs the nine labours.
There are the two rivers of Eunoe and Lethe in the second mountain where we must erase the memory of the ego.
The strongest part of our memory is the karmic memory where we remember all of our difficulties, obstacles, sufferings etc. This memory strengthens the egos of fear, anxiety, worry etc.
Years of Job
The last few years of Job: 4,5,6 and 7 are the ones that are most important as that is where we pay most of our karma.
The light is extracted from the darkness of the ego! This work still occurs in the last four and three years of Job.
In the fifth year is where we free our will from the karma and from the ego!
In the eighth year of Job is where the Being really dies and resurrects within the person.
When one has finished the fifth year of Job, one does not have any karma.
Not having karma means not having human and esoteric karma and in turn this means many circumstances that are karmic disappear from our life.
The last three years of Job are the most important because that is where the Monad works the most. In the seventh year, most of the work is done because it is really the pinnacle of the work.
The death and resurrection of the Intimate Christ occurs at the end of the second mountain.
The desire to exist is the last desire to be eliminated.
The seventh desire has to do with the sexual force and the consciousness. The Being must come into existence, to make the solar bodies, to develop powers and faculties etc.
When the Intimate Christ dies, it is because he has assumed the egos that we have and when he dies they also die!
The golden embryo is the one that does the work of the first mountain. It is the amount of free consciousness that fuses with the human soul. It in turn makes our consciousness three times stronger. The most difficult thing is to do the work while being only an essence. As golden embryo it is very much easier.
Trust and hope are essential ingredients of definition for the Being.
There are several ways of attaining immortality.
- One is the classical way of immortalising the physical body at the end of the second or third mountain.
- Another way is take possession of an immortal mummy.
- Edited out – not included on purpose.
The physical body can become immortalized, and this process can take place in the second year of Job.
Hope is a state of consciousness and it has nothing to do with ourselves as a person. We must also transcend time and space with our hope. Our hope must also transcend time and space.
It is not about ourselves whether we can do something or not, it transcends that.
Dealing with the Law
We all have karma and what matters most is that we know how to negotiate and deal with the Divine Law.
We have to refocus our dealings, and present with the focus, of working more and progressing further in the work! Don’t go to the Law with empty hands. We must present something in order to receive something in return.
We must improve our circumstances before the Law!
