Masonic Initiation Rituals and Mormon Temple Ceremonies


FINALLY!!!
I have been trying to explain this for decades (me also being an initiate of several lodges and other initiatory bodies + having recieved the LDS endowment once upon a time).

The few liknesses between (especially) The Royal Arch and the Nauvoo Endowment (LDS Temple Ritual) are smaller than many think and the history where Masonry and Mormonism meets often obscured.

Ps: No obligations are broken in the video to Freemasonry or Endowment and it is not meant as proselytatization. Purely academic comparison).

Alchemy: Tonights Work


Separation first then a slight heating of the white sea until it gave of a vapour.

Let the sea cool of in a cast of iron.

Let then the sun set in the still surface.

But let it be a sun of two, not of six regardless of its colour.

*Results*

The Mercury is much cooler than anticipated. The Sulphidic part causes it to bubble now and again.

Most satifactory!

New Orders And Claims Of Transmission


I mentioned that i wish there was an order like “The Irish Order of Thelema” in a Swedish version (degrees connected to culture, history and the land + the law of liberty) and got the response that i should found one.

Fact is, i once did found an order that survived and initiated for years (even in my absence). It was meant as a Hermetic order including the GD techniques but also several other traditions. It had a degree system inspired in part by the Scottish Rite (though the rituals where unique to it) and in part on the tree of life.

(Me and one other person still has charters to the Ordo Arcanae as it was called).

I noticed a “wee” problem that i had suspected.

Many orders (i am initiated to quite a few) have a founding myth that is sometimes taken too literally and they seem to want to make claims on tranference that on closer inspection just isnt there (to me a charter is a charter, no charter is no charter).

I avoided that and got the feeling that the order would have been more popular (not that that was a goal) if it seemed as ancient as much of its content and if i pretended to have a lineage to a lot of other historical or semi historical societies.

If simply having a member initiated to several high degrees and such of defunct orders was enough (say a GD 5-6) i could claim a “lineage” to the Bavarian Illuminati, Memphis / Misraim, Royal Arch, The Odd Fellow FLT degrees, certain (contemporary) templar degrees, Rocicrucianism, The Golden Dawn, Several Swedish degrees,  some neo druidic degrees , AND John the Baptist, Apostles John, Peter and James (i dont).

So could almost anyone by extension if they are initiated to any mystery school (if nothing else since that one will claim such a lineage).

How hard would you say it would be to have a newly founded order get traction and what would be its major obstacles?

Liber DCCLVII: The Lesser Pentagram Ritual Of Da Shiznit


Ok, so i was tired and reeeeaaaly bored and there is not much booze around:

 

Perform the Kabbalistic cross thus:

Touch forehead and vibrate: Dude

Touch gender: Da crib

Touch right shoulder: Da powa

Touch left shoulder: Da sweet lovin´

Touch breast: Da bling an´da swagger, fo´eva an´eva.

word!

 

Facing east trace pentagram and piercing it with a Mercedes hood ornament vibrate:

Nero

Turn to south and repeat vibrating: Olsen twins

Turn to west and vibrate: Scorpion King

Turn to north and vibrate: Snoop Dog

 

Invoke the guardian principles around da circle:

Before me: Butterfly knife

Behind me: Moonshiners

On my right hand: Arsonists

On my left hand: Weed

 

Raise thine arms and voice in da paian: Eheieh Shiznit ( i am da shiznit)

 

Give the signs of swagger witch are described in tradition as:

  • The sign of Snoop Dog (traversing the circle deosil with a slightly bouncy walk, really enjoying your company) *Malkuth*
  • The sign of da bling (Lifting your lamen up and smiling like a radiator) *Tiphareth*
  • Sign of “I pity the fool” (Point and stare) *Daath*
  • Sign of da biatch (an “S” like movement with right hand, index finger extended, head “bobbing” from side to side)   *Binah*
  • Sign of “Whos your daddy” (Slapping movements with right hand while moving pelvis to and fro)   *Chokmah*

Repat Kabbalistic cross

 

Honestly, i´m not sure if anyone should actually PERFORM this ritual.

Damn, i´m going to hell!   😀

Ps: Gematric value of “Shiznit”    (Shznt) is 757, hence the name of the ritual.

The names around the circle are Fire = Shin, Gemini = Zain, Scorpio = Nun , Earth = Tau.

Rough


One rough part with any system of attainement, including Theurgical Ceremonial Magick, is that you have to face sides of yourself that you hate or have a hard time forgiving.

There is just no way getting past the negrido stage of alchemy.
Rebuilding without destruction would just be adding.

Doesent mean i have to enjoy it.

Gnostic Catholic Mass In Gothenburg


The altar at Sekhet-Maat Lodge in Portland, Oregon, with Graal and Paten.

 

This sunday i will attend mass at the Homo Est Deus Lodge and local Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica congregation in Gothenburg.

It will be quite a thing that i have been looking forward to.

Despite having been a Thelemite since decades i havent recieved the Eucharist since 96.

I will look into baptism and Confirmation too.
