If we pretend for the moment that Jesus was a real person, than he was surely a Stellar Manifestation. Which is very interesting, because the Church purports to worship him as a Hero/Myth Demigod whose symbol is comically the ‘crucifixation‘ and limitation of that Stellar force. As the Rosicrucians have always understood, the true Stellar current is achieved by placing the Rose of Sexuality at the center of the cross. A true Christian understands that crucifixtions were happening left and right in Jesus’ time. A True Christian understands that Jesus attained a realization, and a tantric one at that. He wasn’t the only Magus of his time. There was also for an example Simon Magus, also baptized by John, who would be attended by whirling and dancing priestesses, whipping their chains ahead of his arrival and spitting up dust and fanfare.
The limitation of Jesus is that he had to be killed bodily to translate his vessel into Heavenly Matter. Comparatively, the Apocrypha of Enoch describes a man, the ancestor of Noah, who was taken bodily and alive into Heaven. He was translated to Immortal Divinity as he was, without need for a revolution cum persecution and execution of the bodily manifestation of the Stellar Force. Not only this, but such was the Creator’s love of Enoch that he was translated into Metatron. If you want to investigate the nature of this transmutation, turn your attention to the traditional Hebrew spellings of the name Metatron. Metatron’s name can be spelled with 6 or 7 letters, and their numerical equivalent and attendant gematria show mechanical keys; a physics of this ancient yoga and alchemy. Metatron’s cube also contains secrets and important mechanics, but they cannot be had simply by dancing under club lighting in the presence of one, or wearing it as a fashion statement. (lol, n00bs)
Metatron is the ‘Angel of the Presence’ (pure, present awareness, I-I), and is also known as a kind of lesser GOD; that for all intents and purposes (operations), Metatron IS God. Enoch ‘became’ Metatron while still in a bodily existence; he became God. The form of theoria & praxis that this Royal Art manifests in is always ‘Non-Dual’. Non-Duality, in very simple and blunt terms means that our mundane world of matter, samsara and suffering, ego and separation, is literally and unequivocally the self-same as the Divine and Ideal realms. Nirvana is Samsara and Samsara is Nirvana, they are ‘not-two and not-one’, ‘neti-neti’, neither-neither’.
When Enoch was brought into heaven, he was shown a series of ‘Tables’, or ‘Tablets’ which contained the Magickal System of the Lord’s Angels, of Creation itself; and that is to say a subtle physics, a system of mechanics. Jumping ahead to the 16th Century, we find Renaissance man Dr. John Dee’s work to mystically retro-engineer Enoch’s Transmutation. Angelic Magick, so-called Enochian, allows the avid seeker to contact the Angelic forces, the Angelic dimension. The Angelic dimension is itself the alchemical elixirs, or ‘Forces of Creation’ which make the transmutation possible. Let me say that again, the Angelic Universe itself is the ingredients necessary to transmute the practitioner in her own native dimension through an Angelic and Creative methodology.
But deeper thought must be paid attention here. Did either Enoch or Dee ‘require’ the magickal system to achieve the result? If you really think about it, these men didn’t ‘do magick’ or ‘alchemy’ in the way most people talk about and practice it. All the practice of these old systems is for sure extremely important as a foundation of habit, discipline, structured thought, and the continuity of the body of Magick; and to learn how it has been done before. But in every case, Magick and Magickal Systems are the result of the Transmutation, and NOT the cause. This of course presents us with a basic question. If Magick is not the cause of Transmutation, then what is?
Transmutation is caused by Contact. In Dee’s case, it began with strange sounds in the night and a serendipitous encounter with his ‘partner in crime’ Edward Kell(e)y. After this inciting incident, the instructions for the Magick, a process for continuing and increasing the Contact, were delivered in steps and stages by the source(s) of that Contact. Enoch of course was given instruction all at once until it was done. Perhaps a result of our descent into the Kali Yuga was the increase and stretching of linear time required for complete translation as our human perception was unable to bridge the Abyss between the Ideal and the Actual and pass beyond in bodily life.
The manifestation of the Stellar, or Galactic/Elemental force, the Sun/Star/Son in its most puissant and Androgyne of conceptions, the Crowned and Conquering Child. The Child is a generation field whose polarity consists of Infinite Space, Time, and Nature, Nuit, Kronos, and Pan on the Negative Arc; and Infinite Depth, Motion, and Heaven, Hadit, Hermes, and Thoth on the positive Arc. The formula of the child is not the suffering if IAO, but the natural growth and accelerated evolution of the Child FIAOF.
Aurobindo terms this non-dual transmutation as a reception of ‘Gnosis’:
“The gnosis does not reject the realizations of the lower planes; for it is not an annihilation or extinction, not a Nirvana but a sublime fullfillment of our manifested Nature. It posesses the first realizations under its own conditions after it has transformed them and made them elements of a divine order. The gnostic soul is the child, but the king-child (so Heraclitus, “The kingdom is of the child.”); here is the royal and eternal childhood whose toys are the worlds and all universal Nature is the miraculous garden of the play that tires never.”
In the garden we grow. The Sun is the energy of Life on our Planet. The bodily manifestation of the Stellar/Galactic force is an agent of accelerated evolution, to grow. The Stellar/Galactic force is the Human Soul in utter union with the Supreme Individual made manifest. There are also bodily manifestations of the Natural/Universal Force, as well as bodily manifestations of the Divine/Transcendental force. Each complex Human structure contains all of these realizations in not two and not one. Heaven, Terra, Human. The Body, the Heart, and the Mind. Works, Love, and Gnosis. Nuit, Hadit, Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Ain, Ain Soph, Ain Soph Aur. Being, Consciousness, Bliss. I, We, It. Personal, Universal, Objective. The Good, The True, and the Beautiful. Wisdom, Courage, and Power. Planetary, Astrological, Galactic/Elemental. In actuality, there is no definitive mechanic for pinning down the trinity. It manifests on all planes at all times, and its correspondences, its masculine and feminine interactions, can manifest in infinintely changing variety, or in solid continuous forms. It is something that in actuality cannot be accessed, but only experienced in real time. The Tao.
It is this ‘Real Time’ aspect which is the Summum Bonum of all practice and attainment. It takes us back to Metatron as ‘The Angel of the Presence’, and the reasons why realized humans produce magickal systems as a result of their Contact and Transmutation. As the Church continues to apply its long dead formula, brainwashing masses into (metaphorically) crucifying on site the Stellar/Galactic/Elemental force, it should be simple to see why the formula of growth requires a constant refreshing and renewing of perspectives. In Magick, formulas are subtle boundaries, and what they contain is slippery enough to contain anything soever. Magickal Systems will give you Contact, but once Contact is made, the transmutation requires improvisation, change, growth! Expressing yourself in the moment with naturalness devoid of any past conception of self. From nothing, True Personality spontaneously arises. As in Tantra we are asked to attempt new experiences, give in to the devil and realize he is none other than God teaching us our desires, and the secret keys to our kinks, our stored vistas of power.
Enoch walked with Angels, he dared the impossible, and became God. This is the true essence of being a Magickal Warrior Priest-Prince. It is knowing your divine right to live as you have chosen in your True Soul Personality. Your divine right to rule your garden, love its beings, cultivate them and grow together. Love things as they are but get your hands dirty and increase their capacity to contain Divinity. Your right to seek the impossibly real perfection of each arising moment, leaping with laughter from one perfection, to a new and still greater perfection arising with the movement and meaning of time. True Magick is a war waged over a vast country, waged with joy and vigor, transcended across many lifetimes and entrained in a glorious chorus of song.
