Core (la lune est toujours la)

The relaxed abdomen method is not a tenable approach for the magician. Relaxing the abdomen is practiced for a variety of good reasons. When you relax your abdomen and breathe deeply into it, your brain wave relaxes into hypnogogic trance states. Abdominal breathing in this way can give you the ability to sense subtle and dream forces in the waking world, by generating an abundance of alpha and theta brain waves. Not only this, but a passive sense of well being and neutrality are also cultivated in the thoughts, and a sense of ‘flow’ and contentment is also a common result of a devoted abdominal breathing practice. Lots of stretching can deepen this state.

This state is the preferred state for the civilian. Such a state cultivates a willingness to go with the flow and meld together into a strong sense of community mind, thereby creating a strong egregore which can be further utilized. Plasticity is the best possible state for the citizen. Thaumaturgy requires willingness, and a relaxed abdomen keeps you willing and able to follow orders. Egregore will be sold as supermind; stop buying.

Nature spirits become objectified through projection, and the body and mind fracture. Suddenly, masturbation is spirit relation, and the universe is caressing my body, rather than my body caressing the unknown. This is the problem with projection, the astral is not objective. The egregore is a social agreement, and it isn’t anything new for a group of humans to sacrifice their vital force because they became convinced the thrill was enlightenment. In fact, this kind of operation and application is par for the course. I am happy to see it … it’s just that I for one am not for sale in such a manner. My vital force has its own purpose, its own soul directive, and its own rules. I also feel compelled to share with others on the path that Magick requires personal strength; leave the pre-rational cosmic pool to the civilians. Real spirituality in Magick is a positive war, where all that is not Purity is violently and immediately ended.

And the positive need for strength as a magician brings me back to truth, the body. The abdomen is the strength of the body. To cultivate this strength, the abdomen must be vacuumed, the core and abdominal muscles must be engaged, the anus tightened gently and sealed, the spine pulled tight in both directions. This is taking command of the body, and is the beginning of fusion. When the abdomen is relaxed, energy is sensed. When the abdomen is vacuumed, energy is fused.

When you sense energy in a passive way, with a relaxed abdomen, you then react to it based on a dream from your own internal habit of beauty, you apply meaning to it based on your brains habit of thinking, or whatever thaumaturgic effects you happen to be dwelling on at any given time. When energy is fused in an active way, you move with it without bias, from your spine, as it is, in its pure and primal form. The universe opens and closes, rises and falls, moves forward then back, then in, then out. The universe does, and then it doesn’t. A relaxed abdomen always opens, never hinges, doesn’t know how or when to close. Making choices from this relaxed state becomes difficult unless such choices are molded to the egregore, or the memory of being in the womb, and this is your first clue that supermind is more than egregore, and more than a cosmic pool where no one has to suffer.

Without fusion, cultivation cannot occur. Cultivation is a precursor to distillation, and the resulting essence is then stored in the body, in a specific and structured matrix of 8 which is further itself fused to the lunar current and its phasing. This is a true method of subtlizing the body … Which then turns the body into a magickal weapon. Charged, consecrated, and sacred. A perfectly magickal approach to perfecting the great work in the body. Objectively real because it involves the translation of the body as a method of checking results. Perfectly efficient because it requires no outside methodology of ‘tech-prep’ nor does it require the use of artifacts. It should not take too much imagination to understand that such a subtle and technical approach to the strengthening and maintenance of the body allows partnering combinations for the creation of spiritual elixirs, the charging of intention, the contacting of Theurgic forces and principles, and true congress and symbiotic exchange with galactic personalities. This is the highest of alchemical arts and requires skill, timing (groove), discernment, and discretion from each individual; and time (nodes). And a fair amount of kink. Discipline is not for everyone.

The foundation of all of which is strength. Foundation, the molten core, the alchemical furnace, the 9, the moon, yesod, the abdomen. It was a woman who brought the wisdom of abdominal strength. It is through the vacuum in the abdomen that the true wisdom of Sophia, and of Babalon is consummated. And when the moon is full do we contact the Hard energy, the 3 solid lines of heavenly sky, of synchronic forces. And in the body as Imperial Fire. The true spiritual fire which always comes to trump the ministerial fires of yin and yang. The Imperial Fire of Wings and Ram, of Governance and of Rising Force; and the small intestines. The light of the hermit, the tip of the Yod. I salute the God within.

On the Body, the Heart, and the Mind

In life we have passions. These passions become colored and get in the way, or propel you along the way. The duality of methods for dealing with the passions involves either detaching from them, or diving into them.

Between these methods of the universe is the human being. The human being having the sole and perpetual responsibility of never coming down hard on either side of duality. This is the deeper meaning of the classic Yin/Yang symbol. Not that duality exists, but that Yin is always Yin, and Yang is always Yang. To neglect the wide vision which encompasses both results in disruption from the unseen, or the unknown. This is the purpose of strategy.

This here being the way of the chariot, of contemplative and tantric action, what then is the essence of this tantra? That the electric charge between poles of duality are annihilated in Bliss. And this is the true nature of all passions; Bliss. Such Bliss is the nature of the Body.

The Body notwithstanding, must be attended to with the utmost care, concern, and responsibility. However, what good is any practice soever if our bodies are not strong enough to embrace and embody our passions? In such a case as weakness in the Body, the passions themselves devour the Body from the inside out, either through repression or obsession. This is the true nature of disease as a perfect plasticity and strength of body renders it immune to disruption.

If Supermind is, than disease is not.

The passions are oft confused with the Heart. Doing this is narcissistic, as true passion is biological and again, strategic. Bliss is something that tingles inside your living tissues, the satisfaction of getting what you want. One of the clearest insights is to realize you have a human right to feel wonderful and seek the living wonders of biological life. One cannot do this if you do not train and discipline the Body to have a capacity to embody the living wonder and Bliss of the universe. Which universe, in its factual and objective entirety, exists within you as component parts to your complex biological existence. What is above is not “The Above” of the alchemists, but rather the within of the Delphic Maxims. Each human being contains even the earth itself inside her body for without it, we are not.

Consciousness, your conscience, resides in the Heart. The true genius, the guardian angel, the daemon, the soul, the sun, and the son are all names given to the Heart energies. Wrapped in the bovine love of breath and charged with the lions beat. Supported by the satisfaction of the feminine/earth body, and the unquenchable thirst to wander, to discover, to plant seeds, and grow dreams. And True Love, which Love is the creator and gamer of the passions.

It is in the Heart that we transcend. For the opening of the Heart goes to infinite, and this great knowledge of infinite is both the source of all our sorrow and the summit of all our seeking. The Heart expands its sensitivity out into the physical universe, and can communicate and forge bonds with forces and powers alive in our objective world, both beyond and within the capacity of our physical senses, out in the galaxies and on other planes of existence, and the fellow humans surrounding us right here.

It is the essence of community, family, fraternity, sorority.  The Heart penetrates the body with True Love and fuses to it its subtle force, its subtle body which can then serve as an antennae and attractor for events, musings, dreamings … in a word; Myth.

It is in the Heart Consciousness that we are ourselves. Our true identity outside the stream of time. Never born, undying, pure and eternal is the Heart. The quality of each moment measured forever against the backdrop of eternity, quanta by quanta, moment to moment, Loving the Bliss of aeternity, Loving the Body, is Consciousness forever there. To know one another on this level of existence is to be dancing together in the eternal Garden of Souls, celebrating in Paradise whilst suffering Bliss on the earth.

If Supermind is, than sorrow is not.

Thought is often confused with the Mind. Doing this is nihilistic, as thoughts are a result of our biology, and specifically our complex triune brain. True Mind we will term Intellect. This Intellect is simply present, it simply is. Radically empty, but yet, full of a nothingness connected outside of this universe, outside of any way we can know reality itself. Beingness, presence, truly and fully living in the moment comes from Mind. Similar to the way the Heart penetrates the Body, the Mind is all penetrant in Body and Heart. You could say that Mind is before, and will be after, but this is saying too much. True Mind, the Intellect, is beyond any conceptions. Our conceptions; the way we conceive ideas are merely thoughts created by the penetration of the Heart energy influencing the passions of the Body. The Heart has a relationship with the Body, with time, with duality … it is involved in its own game for its own success, its own reasons, its own delight, which are transcendent and divine. The Mind IS all these things, is always everything and all things.

The Mind penetrates the Body and Heart until both become totally and permanently aware of its presence … this is actually what we term ‘awareness’. The Heart is the basis of our transcendence, the Intellect is the basis of our evolution. From Intellect, information from outside the universe can be brought into the moment to accelerate the development of the Body and Heart. This is the essence of Art. True Art is known as Art because it is Intellect that has successfully and completely penetrated the Body and Heart with unique/original information that originated outside the universe as we know it. It is the way of Original Heaven, and the True Immortality. This Art can be consummated in the Body through Works (acts/behaviors/etiquette), in the Heart through Love, and in the Mind itself through self-referencing Gnosis, which reflects out into the world as great artifacts of genius.

If Supermind is, than confusion is not.
