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?

Esoterisk Sexualitet

Min kommentar:

 

Personligen anser jag nog att Igra ger uttryck för väldigt gammalmodiga föreställningar som i stort sätt gör sexualiteten heteronormativ. Alla uttryck för sexualitet bör stå i fortplantningens tjänst och allt därutöver är “perversioner”.
Min egen åsikt är nog snarare att det är just ett begränsande av sexuella uttryck som föder obalans (Gamaliel-Yesod blir obalanserad). Många moderna sexologer verkar snarast obekväma med begrepp som parafili eller perversion . När det gäller våldtäkt så ser jag det inte som en sexuell avikelse utan snarare som en obalans i Geburah (som ju faktiskt trots svärdet som symbol är centripetal och restriktiv), dvs en våldstendens/dominansönskan som tar sig “sexuellt” uttryck, vill man vara Freudiansk så skulle det snarast vara ett analt uttryck.

Den Stora Riten.

När det gäller sexuella läggningar (inklusive BDSM osv) och mindre normativa utövningar så är det på tok för komplext för att analyseras enbart med ett par Sephiroth och är ett helt mysterium i sig själv. Inom många sex magiska utövningar så används principer som skulle kunna kallas tex sado-masochistiska, homoerotiska,fetishistiska osv både historiskt och i modern utövning (och i Judiska Kabbalistiska traditioner så är ju oftast det esoteriska “könet” på en Sephira avhängigt av kontext även om den har ett “allmänt kön”).
Din egen slutanalys är intressant. Själv har jag dessutom ofta associerat “manlig” sexualitet med Tiphareth (centrifugal och egostyrd) och “kvinnlig” med Yesod (centripetal och idealstyrd).

Baphomet. Balanserandet och trancenderandet av alla motsatser.

 

Min personliga åsikt är att sexualiteten spelar en stor roll andligt, socialt, fysiskt och känslomässigt, konstnärligt, intellektuellt som går långt bortom (fysisk) fortplantning.

Dessutom så talas det ofta om Qliphoth i Esoteriska sammanhang i väldigt kvalitativa termer snarare än kvantitativa. Det var influx av Ohr (Aur) som spräckte Kelim, kort sagt inflöde av Gudomlig/kreativ kraft spräckte kärlen.

Två av något som balanserar ut varandra och inte generellt överflödar systemet är Sephirothiska.

En kvalitet som tar över och lämnar en obalans i systemet riskerar att bli Qliphothisk.

Detta är väl tämligen “basic” Kabbalah?

Att totalt ägna hela livet åt en enda Mitzvah skulle likt förbannat bli en obalans.

Mycket som i exoteriska sammanhang skulle anses “omoraliskt”, balanserat med sin motsats och i en “dos” lämplig för helheten leder till trancendence bortom båda dessa principer.

Babalon rider på Besten. En helt receptiv natur, med andlig avsikt färdas framåt på sin “djuriska” rent biologiska sida. “Love under will”. Binah/Neschamah använder Yesod och Malchut/Nephesh för att uttöka sin upplevelse, balansera motsatser och trancendera. Notera att Jesus red in i Jerusalem på en åsna (traditionellt associerad med Satan), ett envist djur använt som bärare av ryttare och egendom.

Jag känner massvis med bögar, transor, sadister, masochister, voyeourer och exibitionister av de mest varierande slag.

De enda “perversa” jag känner till är de som helt frånsäger sig hela principen eller förfalskar sin egen natur för att glädja en övernaturlig varelse.

So tired i could puke! Welcome to trivial land!


Today i just had this feeling of nausea or inertia over the internet with its social medias wich arent really social (duh) and its constant regurgitating state.

On the one hand we have the places like Facebook and i cant stand another second of people posting the trivial minutia of their lives today.

Places like Tumblr wich are really just people spitting out pretty pictures.

Both places…most if not all places on the web mainly made for people with a micro celebrity complex and no interest whatsoever in anyone else (yup, nobody reads your posts…..just like you couldnt care crap about theirs) and an attention span of three seconds.

The entitled generation spewing all over eachother.

I just had a sandwich, and now i´m gonna tell you eeeeeeeeeeverything about it.
XOXO *LOL* -Conan The Colossal-

 

Should you actually enter a discussion on anything that could possably be of any interest to anyone older than ten or air an opinion it is all mini trolling, oneupmanship and people with little or no actual existence trying to get the “satisfaction” of “winning” the discussion.

I just dont have the energy to post the same arguments over and over to people who think they are intellectuals who has “gotten it”.

Neither do i have the energy to do so for all the fanatics and fundamentalists out there.

I regard myself as a tolerant guy who can in every way stand people disagreeing with me but in the long run, Atheists trying to “save” people with a rigor i have only seen in the Jehovas Witnesses before, racists who hide behind some make belif “heritage”. Having them constantly rain down their gospels over me is just tiering.

“Hah! I am much more Hermeticerer than you!”
“No, i am the Hermeticerest of ém all. I have a personal letter written by the Archangel Ratziel proving it. He texted it to me last friday.!”
“AGREE WITH ME!!!”
“NO, AGREE WITH MEEEEE! I AM A REBEL!” I´VE GOT BRAND NEW ANCIENT STUFF!”

Once upon a time i too belived that the web was a place full of information and the free word.

A place where people could discuss the way grown ups do, with nothing to prove, everything to find and without some obligation to reach a consensus (usually the opinion of the loudest and least educated person).

In reality the internet is to a large part a toy.Nothing more.

Most information is there, but drowned under tons of crap, not that it matters, very few people have any interest anyway.

They are either shallow or pseudo intellectuals passing their pet theories as knowledge.

…..and again, the ones that arent usually have to be DUG up from underneath all the nothingness.

Tired!

To be totally honest i´m beginning to be tired of other esotericists


Even some that i respect highly are starting to sound like crackpots.

The whole “occult” scene is looking more and more like Evangelical wingnuts with their psuedo history and pet therories and just like there are those that profess “love” in the name of Christ, but to anyone obviously filled with hate, bigotry and intolerance, esoterics, mystics and magicians often make claims to resisting their lower ego, when anyone can see that the whole “Golden Dawn” war and similar occurances are nothing if not ego based.

Pearl And Emerald (A Pentagram Ritual)


A little Pentagram Ritual i wrote to keep in tune with (and contemplate) certain energies.

Start off as in Crowleys “Star Ruby”:

Facing East, in the centre, draw your breath deep deep deep , closing your mouth with your right forefinger presssed against your lower lip.  Then, dashing down the hand with a great sweep back and out, exhaling hard, cry: ΑΠΟ  ΠΑΝΤΟΣ  ΚΑΚΟΔΑΙΜΟΝΟΣ (Apo Pantos Kakodaimones)

Cabalistic Cross- With the same forefinger touch your forehead and say ΣΟΙ (Soi) You genitals, and say Ω  ΦΑΛΛΕ (O Phalle) your right shoulder, and say ΙΣΧΥΡΟΣ (Ischuros) your left shoulder, and say ΕΥΧΑΡΙΣΤΟΣ(Evcharistos) then clasp your hands, locking the fingers, and cry ΙΑΩ (IAO)

Form your thumbs and fingers into a triangle, apex up and in them visualize a Pentagram made of Emerald in it (the triangle held in front of forehead ).

In the sign of Horus/The Enterer fling it forwards with the word “Osiris” Vibrated (The Pentagram should grow in sixe enough to block your way).

Turn to the south. Repat but vibrate “Aethel Hemera”.

Turn to the west. Repeat but vibrate “Khronos”.

Turn to the north. Repeat but vibrate “Phenomenon”.

Your right hand should remain extended as you trace the circumference of your circle from quarter to quarter and after every vibration your left forefinger should do the “Sign of Hoor Paar Kraat/Silence. The circumference should be made of pearl.

Returning to the east recite: “And they shall come and see my glory”

Turn to the south and recite: “Born of fire”

Turn to the west and recite: “Let him take the water of life freely”

Turn to the north and recite: These have power to shut heaven”

Again at the east recite: “And the eyes of them both where opened”

Standing as a cross (arms extended. Sign of Osiris Slain) Say “Before me SunBehind me torch. On my right hand Sunlight. On my left hand Candle (and visualize these) Around me stand the Emerald Star and above and below the Star of Six (Visualize Hexagrams)”.

Repeat Cabalistic Cross.

Repeat Sign of Silence with “Apo Pantos Kakodaimones”.

Analysis:

I based the thing on gematria.

In the GD system the term/title “Magus” belongs both to Chokmah and the path/letter of “Beth” (Mercury).

Magus by Gematria (written in English) equals 328.

The names/phrases used as well as the title all enumerate to (and thus correspond to) 328.

3*Binah (Understanding) 300*Shin-Fire

2*Chokmah (Wisdom- The title “Magus”) 20*Kaph-Wheel Of Fortune

8*Hod (Splendour-Mercurial like the Magus of the Tarot + Tarot Trump Strength/Lust-Leo)

So do:

God The Lord

Promised

Influence

Blessed Is He

Ascension

The Land Of Nod

Golden Altar

Right Hand Man

Time To Heal

Catholic Shame

(Then again, so does “Katie Holmes” and “Fish And Chips” so let´s stay level headed….or not).

True is that there are two names vibrated in the south and that the word “Phenomenon” is not (usually considered) a Divine name.

I do however belive that the Gematric correspondances will even things out and that (as Earth and Malkuth) the northern station will work as the receptacle of the energies of the other three.

Otherwise, why not experiment with the names until you find one equilibrated enough?

Sign of Silence

Spiritual Hydrophobia


As much as i might have at times accused certain members of the G.:D.: of having a phobic relationship with the material (wich is not true btw. Compared to Gnostics in general they are practically BFF´s with Paris Hilton), i myself has harbored a fear of the higher Nephesh.

Affraid of illusion, memories and emotions beyond “control” and determined that my way was “up” (funny enough since many an operation of mine has been aimed at the lower Ruach).

Spiritual Hydrophobia.

Scared of getting the “wrong” things. Invoking a deluge.

“Let there be no difference made among you between any one thing & any other thing; for thereby there cometh hurt.” Liber Al I: 22

Affraid of sacrificing my life to Babalon and offering my blood only in gesture to be mingeled in that blessed cup.

How could life be bliss if one banishes life, keeping it at bay?

Every time i traced a Hexagram was a lie, a blasphemy, accepting only one Triangle, wondering why i couldnt feel my feet?

Refusing the kiss of Nuit.

Asking for, but fearing possabilities beyond what my narrow plans can incorporate.

Expecting to “do” but refusing any material to do it to.

“O man! refuse not thy wife, if she will! O lover, if thou wilt, depart! There is no bond that can unite the divided but love: all else is a curse” Liber Al I:41

Using “The word of sin is restriction” as a mantra, failing to see it goes both ways.

I usually do not use a vibrato when i intone the names. Sounds nice and sacral.
Very impressive how the Imperator greets people in English, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguise, French and Swedish.
