The mind must free itself from all kinds of “schools,” religions, sects, beliefs, etc. All those “cages” are obstacles which render the mind incapable of thinking freely.  - Samael Aun Weor

Let us now refer to the divine Daemon of Socrates: the famous Lucifer of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the very same Nahua Xolotl, who in the magical hill of Coatepec, in Tula, attended faster than the wind, the sorcerous invocation of the sixty elders.

Extraordinary and enchanted Tula. Truly, it is none other than the Scandinavian Thule, the end of this world from which the golden verses of Seneca did speak to us.

Xolotl, the living shadow of Quetzalcoatl, or Lucifer- Prometheus, is the bearer of light, the Morning Star, the living symbol of our cornerstone, the Philosopher’s Stone in which lies the key to all powers.

Lucifer-Xolotl sometimes takes the appearance of Mendes’ goat to symbolize sexual potency.

When returning from the Sinai, where he had met Jehovah, Moses had two glowing rays on his forehead, similar to the horns of a goat. This tells us that he had worked with the sexual power.

It is written in Hebrew letters that the Ark of the Covenant had on its four corners, the horns of a goat.

Let us now refer to Isaiah, the prophet (Isaiah, 14: 12-15):


How are thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How are thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.


The Church Fathers: Simeon, Pachomius, Eulogius, and Anthony, saw their own individual Lucifer (everyone of us has our own) appearing in the form of a pretty woman, or as a terrifying man with glowing horns, or as a child dressed in a black robe.

Let us hear Ezekiel’s marvellous chant to the beautiful demon, Lucifer-Xolotl (Ezekiel, 28: 12, 13, 16):


Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

Thou hast been in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence and thou hart sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub from the midst of the stones of fire.

The following is a direct quotation from the book The Universe of Quetzalcoatl, by Laurette Sejourne:


In Monte Albán, this entity is powerfully mesmerising. The naked entity, which has deformed limbs, a feline mouth, and a dynamic pose — symbolising the beginnings of that city — can only represent Xolotl (Lucifer). It is associated with either the tiger or the fire, whose flames sometimes replace the genitals. The descending movement makes this quite evident.

Ostensibly, Xolotl-Lucifer-Prometheus is Quetzalcoatl’ s double, and is the prince of light and darkness, having absolute power over the heavens, the earth and the infernos. The divine Daemon is the reflection of God within us, here and now, and can confer upon us the power, the wisdom and divine likeness. Eritris sicut dei, “Thou shalt be like gods.” The Philosopher’s Stone (Lucifer-Xolotl) lies in the depths of our own sexual organs, and has to reconcile the opposites — coincidentia oppositorum — or the enemy brothers. Thou shalt be like gods.

The living fire, the philosophical fire of the ancient medieval alchemists lies buried within our seminal system, and is poised on mystical watch for the time of awakening. INRI: ignis Natura Renovatur Inte gram: Fire ceaselessly renews Nature. In Necis Renascor Integer: In death to be reborn, intact and pure.

Saint Thomas says: “He is the highest, the foremost of all angels, the preferred angel of God.”

Dante writes: “The most noble of all creatures and the sum of all creatures.”

Xolotl-Lucifer is not at all a foreign element to our psyche; on the contrary, he is certainly the shadow of our divine Being within our innermost individual depth.

It is written in words of gold in the Book of Life that in the claw of the Nahua Lucifer’s right paw, shine glorious divine golden signs.

Xolotl-Lucifer-Prometheus is the psychological trainer in the gymnasium of practical life.

Some co-fraternities spread foolish and defamatory lies against the solar Gnostic Chnuphis, the Chrestos Agathodemon, the serpent of the Genesis, the Nahua Lucifer, the resplendent Dragon of Wisdom. All this is useless noise and uproar.

Xolotl-Lucifer is disliked and despised by those learned ignoramuses who have rejected the spirit that gives life. They have interpreted the symbolic war in the heavens and Michael’s battle against the dragon to the dead letter, and they do not understand its profound meaning.

This crusade, this celestial battle must undoubtedly take place in the inner depths of our own consciousness. It is a heroic struggle against the animal passions that we carry within, and which are vested upon the self, or myself.

Our own Real Being has to, without question, kill or fail. In the first, he is obviously the victor over all the temptations to which he was submitted, becoming the killer of the dragon.

Xolotl-Lucifer as a tutor, educator or mentor, is certainly astonishing, tremendous and extraordinary.

The Luc temptation is unique didactics, prodigious pedagogy, and amazing attraction. It is unmistakable incentive, seduction, fascination and occult motivation with secret and divine purposes.

We can thus infer, that within our innermost depths, we may and must fight the dragon and its tenebrous hosts (the psychological defects) if we truly long to become immortal gods or the Children of Wisdom.

In the sacred land of the Vedas, Indra, the resplendent god of the firmament, kills Vritra or Ahi, the demon serpent, Lucifer Xolotl. For this prowess, he is Vitrahan, the slayer of Vitra and is called Jishnu, Conductor of the Celestial Hosts.

The cross is a very ancient symbol that has always been used in all religions, by all peoples. Whoever considered it an exclusive sign of a religious sect would be mistaken. When the Spanish conquistadors arrived in the holy land of the Aztecs, they found the cross upon the altars.

On the great religious buildings of the middle ages, where a semi-circular or elliptic apse was added to the choir loft, we observe the shape of the hieratical Egyptian sign of the ansate cross; it reads Ankh and points to the occult universal life in everything.

On the other hand, the hermetic likeness of the Ankh sign is the representation of Venus or Cipris-Lucifer, that is, the copper, bronze or brass.

“Burn your books and polish your brass,” the best authors of medieval alchemy remind us repeatedly. Such an expression, wisely interpreted means: Sexual Magic or scientific chastity, and radical death of the animal ego.

Quetzalcoatl resurrects after having “polished the brass,” becoming the Morning Star. See St. John’s Revelation, 2: 26- 29:


And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

And I will give him the morning star.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.


Bel and the Dragon, Quetzalcoatl and Xolotl, Apollo and Python, Krishna and Kaliya, Osiris and Typhon, Michael and the Red Dragon, St. George and his Dragon: these are always the individual, divine Logoi and their doubles, projected in our own psyche for our own well being.

We will emphasise that killing the Dragon or Venus Lucifer-Xolotl is the same as becoming his children; namely, we receive the Morning Star.

In ancient times, the dragons were the symbol of eternity and of wisdom. The hierophants of Egypt, Babylon, and India called themselves the “Sons of the Dragon and of the Serpent.” This corroborates the teachings of Universal Gnosticism.

Xolotl, the shadow or double of the Mexican Christ, Quetzalcoatl, plunging from the empyrean to our own atomic infernos, is truly extraordinary and marvellous.

Xolotl means dog as well as twin. We may also remember in this chapter that Father

Sahagun states that the dog is the symbol of the fire of celestial origin.

The sexual fire, the dog, the erotic instinct, the Nahua Lucifer, is that extraordinary and marvellous agent that can transform us radically. The dog guides the knight, leading him through the narrow path from darkness to light, from death to immortality.


Xolotl-Cerberus with its terror-striking barks, three flat- nosed snouts, and its neck covered with snakes, frightens all defuncts. It is indispensable to drive it out of the abode of Pluto.

Xolotl-Cerberus, the tricipital, pulls securely his master by the leash throughout the rocky path that leads to final liberation.

Xolotl-Lucifer is the archetype of the chaste penitent; having become an anchorite, he sheds light in darkness and explains the Christic esotericism.

Being in possession of those remains that he will resurrect, XoIotl-Lucifer indicates to us the necessity of dying in order to be. We will now cogitate, infer, meditate.

Unquestionably, the death of the self — throughout sexual alchemy — is the indispensable requirement in order to achieve esoteric resurrection, here and now. I Corinthians, 15: 53-55:


For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?


When we wisely take advantage of Xolotl-Lucifer’s moving and fascinating didactics, we achieve magical resurrection.

Temptation is fire. Triumph over temptation is light. The elimination of those undesirable elements that we carry within is urgent; it cannot be postponed or delayed.

We now have to deliberate and discuss some symbolic values. I am now referring to the tiger and the dog. The solar hieroglyph is imprinted in Xolotl-Lucifer. As he is found at the foundations of our seminal system, he plays the marvellous role of Cerberus the dog, quoted by Dante in his Divine Comedy.

The tiger is different, and the Tiger Knights know it. They, the jaguars of the Gnostic Movement are authentic felines of Revolutionary Psychology who clash against themselves, against their own psychological defects.

Undoubtedly, the dog and the tiger are esoterically linked in the same task.

The anthropomorphism of the tiger in Aztec art marvels all mystics.

It is in no way possible to extricate our psychological aggregates, those inner defects that in their entirety compose the I, without the help of that divine particle or inner Monad, symbolised by the axe. This is the sign of the thunderbolt, clearly embodied by the TigerMan.

It is clearly written in the Book of Life that whoever wants to go up must first go down, and exaltation is preceded by a humiliation

Since ancient times, the descent to the Ninth Sphere has been the foremost test to the supreme integrity of the hierophant. Jesus, Buddha, Hermes, Quetzalcoatl had to go through this tremendous trial.

There, Mars descends to retemper his sword and conquer the heart of Venus; it is there that Hercules cleans the stables of Augeas, and Perseus cuts off the head of the Medusa. In the bowels of earth, Dante’s inferno, or the terrible abode of Pluto, Quetzalcoatl — and his double — must die radically if he wants to resurrect from among the dead.


In the centre is a giant and shady elm-tree, spreading branches like arms, full of years. False dreams, so it is often said, take the tree for their home and cling everywhere beneath its leaves.

There, centaurs ride, and there inhabit also: Briareus, the hundredfold; Lerna’s Hydra (Hercules killed her by cutting her multiple heads off); the Chimaera, a monster with the body of a goat; the Gorgons; the Harpies; and the shadowy shape of the three-bodied Gerion.

The route leading to Tartarus, throughout the waters of the Acheron, which is filled with marshes of mud and murky waters, is frightening.

A horrible boatman with brittle grey hair, eyes which are stark points of flame, and a long dishevelled beard, manoeuvres the boat carrying souls to the other shore. A crowd, tortured and diverse, gathers at the shore, awaiting the boatman to carry them. He picks them randomly; now this one, later that one. Some waiting, beg in vain, for in the end, there is no hope.

These are the souls of those who had no burial, and desperately feel that time is an eternity, until a pious soul upon the earth takes care of their bodies and puts their ashes to rest’.


Then the abode of Pluto opens and the souls begin their sad rest without light, being just a shadow of what they were.
