Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

Well, the result of this species of morbidity, disseminated throughout the western world, from these schools of a subjective, incoherent, vague and indefinite type has been the Kalkian Personality, in other words, the personality that is characteristic of this Age of Kali Yuga.

Kalkian personalities are disrespectful, irreverent. This type of personality from pseudoesoteric and pseudo-occultist schools have lost, not only the sense of authentic devotion and of true religiosity but also that of veneration for the ancient Patriarchs. In this manner, humanity, having been able to be directed by truly wise religions, has degenerated in its ridiculous pedantry thus forming the kalkian personality.

It is convenient to know how to confront a kalkian personality with an authentically esoterist personality. What is the difference? The kalkian personality is full of pedantries, bottled up in the Dogma of Evolution, misinformed about the internal constitution of man, he ignores the tantric mysteries; he fears the development of the igneous Serpent in the spinal column, and besides, the fact of being stuffed with theories produces in him a feeling of self-sufficiency.

Unquestionably, the kalkian personality is a victim of self-deceit. He believes that he has achieved everything when he has achieved nothing and what is worse is that he has lost the sense of veneration; he has forgotten the true and authentic religiosity; he has also lost humility before the Creating Logos. This is the kalkian personality.

We cannot walk on the path of the kalkian personality; we cannot accept those false dogmas such as Evolution; such as that of believing that all humanoids are perfect, complete Men with their existential bodies; such as fearing the igneous Serpent of our magical powers and the lived experience, etc. We prefer instead to follow the path of authentic Wisdom, the path of the Tantras, that of the dissolution of the ego and that of the recognition of our own misery and incapacity. We prefer to recognize that we are nothing, that we are only miserable worms in the mud. We are concerned, yes, to work in ourselves, upon ourselves. We want the dissolution of our “myself’, of the “oneself’.

We use the intelligent power of the Creative Energy. We work in the Forge of the Cyclops which frightens pseudo-esoterists and pseudo-occultists so much. We are, therefore, on a different, one hundred percent revolutionary path, and which nonetheless, has a frightening antiquity which is lost in the unbearable night of all ages.

Certainly, the characteristics of the kalkian personality are unmistakable; before everything else, the self- sufficiency and the terrible pride and the frightening vanity based on theories. We see, for example, in the schools of psychoanalysis, parapsycho1o etc., what terrible pride and self-sufficiency seize those people with true kalkian personalities. They stand out not only in certain groups but they also appear on television, they appear in the press, on radio, and have the entire world completely poisoned with a type of vibrations which in esotericism is called veneniooskirian.

They have complete self-sufficiency, they look at the people of the Middle Ages with disdain, they think that they are super-civilized; they believe that they have arrived at the non plus ultra of wisdom. Such is their pride that they plan to conquer the Infinite, outer Space, they laugh at what they consider to be superstitions of the medieval sages; there you have the subject with a kalkian personality.
