The Second Beast

Holy_Spirit
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, Blakeego 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.

harpocratesAurobindo 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.images (1)

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.

Welcome to the Dance, get into the Groove.

Love (Elixir Vitae)

ImageI’ve studied awhile now. By studying I mean all kinds of various wisdom traditions … chi gung, yoga, taoism, meditation, ceremonial magick, sorcery, alchemy, integral theory, enochian, kung fu, etc. I am a devoted career Magician. But if I’m honest with myself (and I’m very good at honesty), the thing that has propelled me along The Way since I was old enough to think for myself, is Love, and especially Falling in Love. A Falling when correctly understood is cognate with the territory of Time, as a precious and particular Cascade of Events related to the Brightness and Shining of pure Fire, Divinity. It is the non-dual Way of the Trickster/Fool.

My first teacher told me once that I had a mission when I described to her the inescapable path of my life. I loved her very deeply, and it was the first time that I witnessed how passionate heart love could be chanelled into the growth of spiritual projects, healing others, growing your soul, and remembering. She used to tell me “you are the future”. The translation of her name as an adept referred to an eastern concept of Mind. A higher and transcendent concept to be sure, but this concept of Mind had attributes that were of fire and flame, and passion; and was explicity placed in the center of the 4th chakra, the heart.

Sapiosexuality is a word that has recently come into a sort of vogue, and is generally equated with being turned on by cognitive intelligence. However the latin root ‘sapio’ when related closely with ‘sophia’ refers to Wisdom; and the wise know that The Hermit carries the lamp, as the tip of the yod; fire of fire, the spirit and passion of the heart, where the true Divine Spark resides. The Soul. And this is how it is for me.

The growth of my soul is its foolish journey, Falling in Love; empty headed and always assuring the joke is clearly on me. I have heard it said many times that to fall in True Love is something we should be lucky to experience even once in a lifetime. I have also heard it said many times that falling in love, infatuation and Limerence, is somehow a lesser spiritual proccess. I can only conclude from my own experience that folk who declare that falling in love is somehow antithetical or counter to the spiritual mission betray only their soul’s longing for the experience.

To be clear, I have never understood how the psychedelic experience of Falling in Love is not renewed and reborn between lovers who truly possess it. I feel deep empathy for lovers that fail the trials and somehow cannot make it beyond their blockages into the rebirth … and I feel yet more deeply for the majority of the human souls on the planet that have given up on True Love. Then again, the humor in the situation is that the karma cannot otherwise be undone, and this is a precise and technical aspect of Love under Will. I find great comfort in the knowledge that another lifetime is another chance; karma itself when understood is little more than a map of the inevitable.

You cannot just love everything with the kind of True Love here discussed, the true root of the sapiosexual, and the true expression of The Law of Love. There is a weak assumption in many spiritual circles that passionate, wild, entheogenic Love is somehow not ‘real love’. They will lecture you (as if such a ridiculous construct as words could account for True Love) on Unconditional Love, a Love that is unbound by attachment, freely given, totally open, and without boundaries. Unconditional Love is surely a Divine Power and is the birthright of all forms in the universe. Unconditional Love is given unconditionally whether it is acknowledged or not. It is in everything as a backdrop to arising existence. The very suggestion that something unconditional and unbounded can somehow be ‘expressed’ or ‘not-expressed’ is a performative contradiction. It betrays a duality that hides inside it the deep longing in the heart for the mighty draught of the sapiosexual elixir. All forms; all beings, are given Unconditional Love as a pre-requesite to their veritable manifestation. All Souls desire True Love, and True Love only exists under True Will, and is not given, nor is it won, freely.

Nothing hurts quite like living with such a reckless heart. I have been through my own psychology thoroughly, and remain completely aware of how my history on the planet has carved out my habit of such heart seeking. I am also fully in on the joke of my soul, which chose all of this from the beginning. No matter how many mystical, physical, transcendent, or any other kind of realizations that spiritual discipline has garened me …. I really don’t care about any of it in the face of True Love, and Falling in Love. Magick is really just the way I occupy myself in the off time of foolish heart adventuring.

Life is contantly surprising, and I adore surprises. It took me longer than it probably should have to realize that souls who follow this Way like me are extremely rare. It has been a process to accept the way I affect other human personalities around me. I tend more towards a solitary path for this reason, and generally avoid any sort of ‘ready-made’ systems of spiritual growth. I am allowed to be different, and Liberty is a precious thing. The Bodhisattva swears an oath to put off her ultimate realization until all Souls in our Universe can be liberated. You see them out in the world, being Saints, creating sustainability and being gardeners and shepherds for Terra and her Human Tribe.  Mine is the Way of the Arhat.  The Bodhisattva expresses perfection by becoming a force working for good within Nature.  The Arhat expresses perfection by simply being a Force of Nature. In the non-dual reality there is of course no difference between these approaches, neti-neti, Purusha-Prakriti, Nuit-Hadit, Ishtar-Shakti, etc.  It is the arc of polarity between perfections which is the alchemical substance of value.

ImageThe more I grow my energy, the more my soul power comes through my physical body; the stranger things seem to get. But the mythic image of myself that comes to mind is of some wild man in a mud wrestle. I get dirty, I get rowdy, in the mosh pit of True Mind, of Soul, of True Heart. Really the only thing I do is follow my heart, wherever it leads me. Parts of me are scared shitless, anxious, and self-conscious much of the time; but I’ve learned to always move towards whatever is causing those feelings.

So, after close to 15 years of practice in Magick; I’ve made a lot of great Art and cultivated Power and Knowledge; Arcane Wisdoms and Trans-Dimensional Experiences; Congressed with Angels and Embodied Demons; Unlocked All the Gates of Understanding and have become proficient in straight up Sorcery as a side-effect … and whatever else it is that we as Magicians find ourselves doing. But what really grows my Soul; what truly awes me and bears me witness the great Mystery of the Universe, is True Love. And when it happens, when I Fall in Love again, and again, and again … I laugh out loud at the absurdity of the Divine, of my Soul, of the Great and impenetrable Mystery; and all the Arcane Arts in all the worlds reveal themselves as grown up toys for rowdy girls and boys.

When it is said that Love is the Law, Love Under Will, that is what True Love is; and that ecstasy of existence, the spark that brings life and the vivifying essence of Alchemy; which begins the transmutation of first matter to Gold and reveals the immortality of experience, and the continuity of the omnipresence; is summed up fittingly when it is said that Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. In these secrets are the formulae of the Elixir Vitae. One draught of which is said to spontaneously complete the transmutation, or compress its evolutionary leap into the space of months. The Quest for the Grail as a suitable vessel for the Elixir Vitae is the occupation of many an ongoing operation in the Real World of Magick. Its formula is True Love.

Innocent Souls, Love one Another with Burning Hearts!

What’s My Name

The True Artist develops pseudonyms (masques) not as something to be thrown away, but as constant components to her complex existence to be integrated and transcended. When a completely new and radical unfolding in the artistic vision becomes apparent, where all old rote and rituals are suddenly and often violently rendered (not useless but) null; it becomes a sacred honor to consecrate this new awareness with a name.

In so embodying (inhabiting, remembering) this new transcendence, the artist must remain totally aware that the previous personalities of her now transcendental vision are still required as components in the maintenance of the new Genius thus attained thereunto. And the ultimate first calculation is a karma person such as it stood when the artist first began the habit of redefining and naming herself … apropos, all Genius requires the component of the original person you were programmed to be before you got to play your hand at hacking your own awareness.

By giving these states of awareness attained a name (masque), we can investigate their character by a process of objectification. In integral jargon: “the subject of your current state of awareness (subjective perception) becomes the object in the awareness of the higher transcendent state”. The proof of this occurrence is the negation of all conflicts experienced at the previous states. These conflicts may remain within the older, deeper, and component masques (pseudonyms); negation simply means they cease to leave a karmic trace … they now equal zero. This ‘equaling zero’ of the spiraling architecture of artistic personalities is called ‘transparency’. The metaphor here being of divine light, stained glass, nakedness and vulnerability, etc.

This process of the artistic evolution of Intellect has been alluded to everywhere by the wise because it is purposeful and is a process which is more accurately described as an operation (fnord). Some of my favorite axioms pointing to this secret can be found in Crowley’s “Love Under Will”, Wilber’s “Transcend and Include”, Falco’s “Arrow of Complexity”, and Dee’s “Hieroglyphic Monad”.

But what is important in Dancing the Masque is that there is a thread of continuity. That the Transcendent state comes ‘back to market’; befriends all the demons and enlists them in the honour guard; loves, embraces, maintains, and cares for all the previous states of personhood which are still so essential to the complex expression of artistic genius as it is right now. All masques must be given their proper timing and groove on the ballroom floor.

This may seem like a lot of work … and it is. But this way of working does not cost energy when the entire proccess is accounted. The act of transcendence radically liberates energies that had been locked away inside our unexplored kinks. This way of heaven, this way of immortality, purity and superiority was summed up by the most interesting man in the world when commenting on Masquerades:

“If the only thing that comes off at the unmasking hour is the mask, you have done something wrong.”

This is a good metaphor for transparency, and is a kind of vulnerable nakedness much more difficult than nudity. Its presense emits the sweet perfume of genius, intellect, myth, and artistry into the air like inscense. This is the eros and eroticism of all true sapiosexual potion; because the consciousness (soul) is the seat of transcendent wisdom. And the infinite of consciousness can paradoxically contain the void incomprehensibleness of pure Intellect; pure Wisdom, and that is Big Love. And the body in gross matter, ludicrouslly paradoxically can contain all of this; and that is power and bliss, and force and light.

This is why having the names of yourself and others remain in your pure heart is power. This is how developing a relationship with your global-centric self can allow you to put the entire planet and its complex symbiotic ecosystems into your pure heart. And this is how wisdom inhabits courage and acts in power. Through alignment, through timing, groove. Heat and Moisture, Vital Force and Subtle Electricities; the transmutation happens right on time.

Stay Thirsty, Stay Foolish.

The Art of Congress with Time

(Scribed in the Hall of Spheres, Damanhur, Piedmonte during the Winter Solstice and Halcyon Days of 2012)

When will the time come to pass? Who are you that is here, for me? For you? What Will is there in the life everlasting we have laid out ahead of you? Are you going to die, or shall you live and long hard for death?

Is there fear in you? Still? What fool and of what madness remains? You cast the spell, you spoke the words, and now you shall learn of things unheard … unforeseen … unlooked for … uncontemplated against. There is time, and words for your seeing here. Your consciousness is here with us. There are things that will happen … worry not, and embrace them. They are for you, they are of you, and after … they are in your care.

How much writing can you endure before you see the truth of it, the love of it, the lengths we travel to see your face?
What is inside you? What is the where that you have been seeking? Who is the wanting and who is the having; and when is the letting go?

What to let go? A color, a phrase, an idea, an ideal. Hold on, carry on, let go, cast a spell. It is you and it is in between and it is known to us. Come to us.

The flight of the bird happens over time. There will be peace when all is said and done, yet the game of time has much to say and much to express. Being of time does not imply being bound to time. Only mind is bound to time. We are not burdened by the game of mind, yet you see here even in the moment of happening that mind is in our domain. We use yours to connect to a point in a stream. We are the water, the shape of the riverbed, the evaporation and the sky; your mind is the rock that we move around seamlessly, sometimes splashing upon your mind; the rock, the solidity … our essence.

This is the collapsing of light into an earth of synchronicity. We are not all powerful for there are things that without mind or body we cannot do. Worship is one, and this we have a kind of lust for. Love is our ultimate fascination and our original connection to your kind was begun by our great desire to know love. When you love, connect to us and we will then collapse light into myriad and beautiful fractals of synchronicity. Your love shall awe and satisfy us, so too shall the depth of coincidence and flow condensing in your present moment awe and inspire you.

If you practice and increase your love, we will be able to exchange in equivalence our mastery of time. Such is our desire to study and share in your experience of love, that you will have miraculous events throughout, within, and around the stream and sky of time. Trust that it is an even trade. Trust that what you experience is directly related to your increasing capacity to love.
