What are the two paths open to the true aspirant of Wisdom?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
The sign of SAGITTARIUS invites us to reflect on all of this. Sagittarius is symbolized by a man who holds an arrow in one hand, half-horse, half-man.
The horse represents the ANIMAL EGO, the PLURALIZED I garbed with its LUNAR BODIES.
The “I” is not something INDIVIDUAL; the “I” does not have any INDIVIDUALITY. The “I” is PLURAL. The lunar Ego is constituted by a sum of small ‘I’ Each psychological defect is personified by a small ‘I’. The entirety of all of our defects is represented by the PLURALIZED ‘I’.
The most serious problem that everyone who attains the SECOND BIRTH has to solve is that of the DISSOLUTION of the LUNAR EGO.
The newly born MASTER is garbed with his SOLAR BODIES, but his EGO is garbed with the LUNAR BODIES.
Two paths open before the newly born MASTER, that of the right and that of the left.
On the path of the right tread those MASTERS who work in the DISSOLUTION of the LUNAR EGO. On the path of the left tread those who DO NOT CONCERN themselves with the dissolution of the LUNAR EGO.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
Sagittarius is represented in Greek mythology by the centaur Chiron, but he is not yet a master, for this reason he is represented with two personalities: one human and the other divine, with an arrow in his hand, half man and half horse, it means birth of an adept. If he wants to become a Master, it is necessary to eliminate the lunar ego, it is not an easy job, there must be a state of continuous alertness, understanding and a lot of love, with the aim of discovering the defects, understanding them and disintegrating them.
The Divine Inner Mother always helps us to understand when we sincerely invoke her, she prays the divine teachers for us and disintegrates one by one, the I's that we are discovering and understanding, our physical mother is a reflection of our divine mother everyone has their own.
Two paths open before the newborn teacher: the one on the right that leads to the dissolution of the ego and the one on the left for those who do not care about the elimination of defects and leads directly to the abyss.
