|'Beneath the earth burns a fire that causes violent eruptions from time to time. But this fire also burns within us, at the base of the spinal column. This underground fire, which is the fire of the belly and the genitalia, corresponds to what the yogis of India call the Kundalini force. And although at the moment, the spinal column has a purely anatomical and physiological function in most people, there are initiates who, by awakening the Kundalini force, have succeeded in bringing their spinal column to life in view of an immense work of spirituality and magic.
The Kundalini force lies dormant at the base of the spinal cord. This is the ‘strength of all strengths’ referred to by Hermes Trismegistus in the Emerald Tablet. Once awakened it can move either upwards or downwards.
|If it moves up, the person in question enjoys the greatest spiritual development. If it moves down it produces the worst kind of physical and psychic disturbance. Those who awaken the Kundalini force without first becoming pure and fully in control of themselves, fall prey to unrestrained sexual passions and a demonic lust for power that puts them in opposition to the entire world. This is why disciples are advised not to attempt to awaken Kundalini before having worked on purity and humility. For this force, this ‘strength of all strengths’ can destroy as well as create. Tantric science teaches that Kundalini sleeps seven slumbers and that it must therefore be awakened seven times, because it is buried under seven layers of increasingly subtle matter...'|
