THE SEXUALITY AND ITS ESOTERIC PROBLEMS IN THE MYSTERIC REPRESENTATION OF ELEUSIS, ORPHISM, SAMOTHRACE, EGYPT, INDIA AND IN THE OCCULT CHRISTIANITYIn the ancient mysteric praxis, the aspirant to the deification, to the total union with the Numen, had to pass through numerous trials and experiences to win himself, in order to receive at the end the baptism, to experience the death and the resurrection, to descend to the Inferno and to be transfigured into the Sun. The neophyte, or miste, was submitted to a particular sexual experience, connected with the esotericism of the sexes, with the laws of the polarities and with the awakening of the so-called ‘Sacred Fire‘. There prevailed a conception, that today still has its counterpart in the Tantric Yoga(1), the techniques of which are indisputably true and effective. In fact, in the Hindu and Tibetan Tantrism, ancient and present, we find the analogous experience of Eleusis, Samothrace, Egypt of old: experiences in which was involved the sexual sphere of who was initiated to the Mysteries ( the miste ). A priestess, due to her merits, received the divine presence of the God according to its feminine metaphysical aspect (in the Egyptian mysteries, it was the Goddess Isis). This deified Woman, installed in the Temple, received in her spiritual intimacy, affective and erotic, the ascetic, winner of the trials. If the misto was a woman, then she could unite herself intimately with the Numen (Osiris in the Egyptian Mysteries), physically represented by an Adept of the Temple, who, spiritually and sexually, received the neophyte, the initiant, so that she became with him a single spirit, a single soul and a single eros, projected in the Numen. This experience was obtained with special sexual techniques, which in the Tantric Yoga take the names of maithuna and Kundaliniyoga, and in the Hermetic-Alchemistic Tradition are indicated by the term of ‘operation of the two vases‘. The mysteric sexuality of ancient Greece, of Egypt, of India, or of China and Japan, underwent, without changing the substance of the things, remarkable innovations after the Advent and the revelation of the Messiah Jesus. We mean to say that Christ laid stress on the sexual problem, confirming the sacredness of the sexual act solely for the married. He indicated the way of the chastity to the nubile and the celibates, and that of the ascesis in two for whom, loving each other, got married. In the wisely-celebrated marriage, choosing a partner of kindred mentality, that is Archeosophical, it is possible to put into practice that which in the ancient Mysteries was celebrated in a certain way for lack of that divine revelation, which arrived later and was taught to the people of all the earth by the living voice of the Christ. The sexuality, the eros, the genetic instinct must be sublimated, purified to become, from instruments of bestial slavery, instruments of freedom and joy. One arrives to this with an appropriate regime, which we have treated exhaustively in Booklet 12: The Meditation on the Sexual Sphere and the Ascesis. (1) T.
