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

THE LAW OF THE PENDULUM

Posted 2/23/2015

It is interesting to have in the house a clock with a pendulum, not only for checking the time but also for reflecting a little. Without its pendulum, this type of clock does not function; the movement of the pendulum is profoundly significant. In ancient times the dogma of evolution did not exist. 

In those days the sages understood that historical processes always take place according to the Law of the Pendulum. Everything has its ebb and flow, its rise and fall, increase and decrease, moves to and fro in accordance with this marvellous Law. 

It is not strange at all that everything oscillates, that everything is subject to the swaying of time, and that everything evolutes (evolves) and involutes. 

Joy lies at one extreme of the pendulum, sorrow lies at the other one. All our emotions, thoughts, longings and desires swing in accordance with the Law of the Pendulum. Hope and desperation, pessimism and optimism, passion and suffering, triumph and failure, profit and loss, assuredly correspond to the two extremes of pendular movement. 

Egypt rose, with all its power and majesty, on the banks of the sacred river, but when the pendulum went to the other side, when it rose by the opposite end, the country of the pharaohs fell and Jerusalem rose, the city beloved by Prophets. Israel fell when the pendulum changed position and the Roman Empire rose at the other extreme end. 

The pendular movement raises Empires and makes them fall, it causes the ascent of powerful civilizations and afterwards brings about their destruction, etc. 

At the right side of the pendulum can be placed the various religions, sects, pseudoesoteric and pseudo-occultist schools. 

At the left side of the pendulum's movement can be placed all the schools of materialist type, Marxist, Atheist, Scepticist, etc. Which are the antithesis of pendular movement, changeable, subject to incessant permutation. The religious fanatic, due to any unusual event or disappointment, can move to the other extreme of the pendulum, becoming an atheist, a materialist, a sceptic. 

Due to any unusual incident, perhaps a metaphysical or transcendental event or a moment of indescribable terror, a materialistic and atheistic fanatic can shift to the opposite extreme of the pendulum's motions and become an unbearably religious reactionary.  Example: a priest defeated by the polemics of an esotericist, in desperation became incredulous and materialistic. 

We knew the case of a sceptical, atheistic woman who, because of a conclusive and definite metaphysical event, became a magnificent exponent of practical esotericism. 

In the name of truth we must declare that the true and absolute materialistic atheist is a sham, is nonexistent. 

Faced with the proximity of inevitable death; faced with an instant of indescribable terror, the enemies of the eternal, the incredulous ones and the materialists, instantaneously pass to the other extreme of the pendulum and end up praying, weeping and crying out with infinite faith and enormous devotion. 

This is a typical case of religious jealousy taken to the extreme, in no way could Marx accept the existence of other religions and preferred to destroy them with his Dialectics.This is a typical case of religious jealousy taken to the extreme, in no way could Marx accept the existence of other religions and preferred to destroy them with his Dialectics.Karl Marx himself, author of the Dialectical Materialism, was a fanatically religious jew who, after his death, was accorded the tributes of a chief Rabbi. 

Karl Marx prepared his Materialistic Dialectics with a sole purpose: "TO CREATE A WEAPON TO DESTROY THROUGH SCEPTICISM ALL THE RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD". 

This is a typical case of religious jealousy taken to the extreme, in no way could Marx accept the existence of other religions and preferred to destroy them with his Dialectics.  Karl Marx complied with one of the protocols of Zion, which states literally: "It does not matter if we fill the world with materialism and repugnant Atheism. The day when we triumph we will disseminate the religion of Moses properly codified in a dialectical form and will not permit any other religion in the world". 

It is very interesting to note that in the Soviet Union, religions are persecuted and that the Soviet people are taught the materialistic dialectics whilst within the synagogues the Talmud, the Bible and the religion are studied and they work freely without any problem.  The lords of the Soviet government are religious fanatics of the law of Moses, yet they poison the people with the farce of Dialectical Materialism. 

We would never pass judgement against the people of Israel, we are only making a declaration against certain elite double-dealers who pursue undisclosed ambitions. Whilst poisoning the people with Materialistic Dialectics, they secretly practice Moses' religion. 

Materialism and Spiritualism with all their resulting theories, prejudices and preconceptions are processed in the mind, in accordance with the Law of the Pendulum and are fashionable according to custom and time. Spirit and matter are highly debatable, thorny concepts which no one understands. 

The mind knows nothing about spirit, it knows nothing about matter. 

A concept is nothing other than just that: a concept. Reality is not a concept, although many ideas can be conceived about reality. 

The spirit is the spirit (the Being) and can only be known to itself. 

It is written: "THE BEING IS THE BEING AND THE REASON FOR THE BEING TO BE IS THE SAME BEING". 

The fanatics of matter-God, the scientists of Dialectical Materialism are a hundred per cent absurd and empiristic. They talk about matter with dazzling and stupid selfsufficiency when in fact they know nothing at all about it. What is matter? Which of those dumb scientists know? The so much hackneyed matter, also is a very prickly and highly disputable concept. 

What is matter? Is it cotton? Iron? Flesh? Starch? Stone? Copper? A cloud or what? Saying that all is matter would be as empirical and absurd as asserting that the whole human organism is a liver or a heart, or a kidney. Obviously, one thing is one thing and another thing is another thing, each organ is different and each substance is distinct. Then, which of all these substances can be the matter they so much talk about? 

Many people play with the pendulum's concepts. However, concepts are not in fact reality. 

The mind knows only illusory forms of nature, but it knows nothing of the truth contained within such forms. 

Theories go out of fashion with time and the passing of years and we find that what we learned at school is useful for nothing afterwards; in conclusion: nobody knows anything. 

Concepts of the extreme right or the extreme left of the pendulum go out of date like women's fashion. All those concepts are processes of the mind, things that take place on the surface of the understanding, nonsense, vanities of the intellect. To any psychological discipline, another discipline is opposed, any logically structured psychological process is opposed by another one similiar to it and, at the end of the day, what? 

The real, the truth, is what interests us, but this is not a question of the pendulum, it cannot be found amongst the swings of theories and beliefs.  Truth is the unknown from instant to instant, from moment to moment. 

Truth is found at the centre of the pendulum, not at the extreme right and not at the extreme left either. 

When Jesus was asked: "What is the truth?", he kept a profound silence. And when the Buddha was asked the same question he turned his back and left. 

The truth is not a question of opinions, neither of theories, nor of prejudices of the extreme right or the extreme left. 

The concept which the mind may build up about the truth, is never the truth. The idea that the understanding may have about the truth, is never the truth. 

The opinion we may hold regarding the truth, however respectable it be, is in no way the truth. 

Neither spiritual tendencies nor their materialist opponents can ever lead us to the truth.  Truth is something that must be directly experienced, just as when we stick a finger into fire and it burns, or when we take in water and choke. The centre of the pendulum is within ourselves, and it is there where we must directly discover and experience the real, the truth. 

We need to directly auto-explore ourselves in order to auto-discover and profoundly know ourselves. 

The experience of the truth only comes when we have eliminated the undesirable elements which as a whole constitute the myself. 

Truth comes only by eliminating error. Only by disintegrating the Self, my mistakes, my prejudices and fears, my passions and desires, beliefs and fornications, all types of intellectual obstinacy and of self-sufficiency, does the experience of the real come to us.  The truth has nothing to do with what has or has not been said, nor with what has or has not been written. It only comes to us when the myself has died. 

The mind cannot seek the truth because it does not know it. The mind cannot recognise the truth because it has never known it. The truth comes spontaneously to us when we have eliminated all those undesirable elements which constitute the myself, the self. 

As long as the consciousness remains bottled in the self, it will be unable to experience that which is real, that which lies beyond the body, affections and the mind, that which is the truth. 

When the myself is reduced to cosmic dust, the consciousness is liberated, it finally wakes up and directly experiences the truth. 

The Great Kabir Jesus rightly said: "KNOW THE TRUTH AND IT WILL MAKE YOU FREE". 

What use is there for us in knowing fifty thousand theories if we have never experienced the Truth? 

Anyone's intellectual system is very respectable, but any system has its opponent and neither one nor the other are the truth. 

It is better to auto-explore ourselves in order to auto-know ourselves and, one day get to directly experience the real, the TRUTH.
