Hello students of the Mysteries, this is Noah Socrates speaking to your from the Akashic Repository via the tepaphone, let those of you that have ears listen. Today we are not going to scry or move through history as we usually do but I am going to tell you of an event that I remember back when I was on earth with my beloved Guru and friend frater Shivastus Solomonicus. Sometimes he would get so enthusiastic that he would blurt out occult secrets and expose that he had personally influenced events in history. He would incriminate himself with guilty knowledge that only a certain historical personage had known.
This one time the subject of King Arthur came up which provoked babaji to start going into this story about how Excalibur had been the name of Arthurs first sword and he had broken it by using it dishonorably. Babaji then explained that the name of the second sword was PRAXIS. Everyone was dumbfounded, mouths agape. Many of his students were fluent with the subject of Arthurian Mysticism and diligent students of those mysteries, and none of them had ever heard that before. It wasn’t hard to figure out that Babaji being 900 and some years old had something personally to do with King Arthur. He had accidentally shown his hand.
A frantic discussion began in the Zed to find out exactly what his relationship with Arthur was. I won’t tell you all of the wild ideas but just the ones that I found in my research from the Akashic Library to have been correct. It turns out that he was the Merlin. Merlin’s staff had two dragons on it. According to what Shivastus said at other times the white dragon and the red dragon represented Indulgeance and Aversion the forces that make up the human body. The wine and the bread, the blood and the brain. He taught that the balancing of these out was the alchemical marriage. Many of the Zed thought and I feel correctly so that his initials S.S. were a reference to the two dragons on Merlin’s staff.
Some believed that the two S’s in Moses were similar. Shivastus often taught that the word moses meant freedom and came from the Indian word Moksha. Some people correlated the two serpents that Moses Serpent ate up when he threw it down in front of Janis and Jambris as meaningful too. Shivah tells us the Jains were the mystics from india. Moses demonstrated Sapiential Authority over the advisers to the king.
I was able to talk to him in private one day as we walked through the maze garden on our walking meditations and he told me that what King Arthur had been trying to do was to bring the philosophy of the cult of the Augures to the modern age for the good of the world. Arthur was Auctoritas, the word made by the cult of the Augures and their philosophy on society and praxis, the Zed society itself was based on the tenets of that cult. Even Jesus had tried to bring the very same message to the West and succeeded to a greater or lesser extent before his message was corrupted. Auctoritas Rex is the once and future king because he is the only king that deserves to rule. Jesus wasn’t king of the Jews, he was king of the philosophers because the rabbinical tradition was a philosophical guru tradition, so it should read.
IAESUS NAZAREUM REX PHILOSOPHORUM
Praxis is the practice and process of applying your philosophy in the world, walking your talk. The high priest isn’t above the law and doesn’t invent the law, he teaches the law and the law is pre existent and immutable. If the high priest didn’t teach it the very rocks would scream it. Nobody is above the authority of reason. Homo Sapiens means wise man. People aren’t born wise and some people never attain to wisdom which means that not all human animals are actually HUMAN, only wise man is human, only wise man is like god.
Shivastus would hammer over and over again that if you don’t know the logical fallacies and cognitive biases you can’t prevent yourself from making them. And you will not be a wizard before you are a philosopher king. The siddhis don’t even begin to take effect until you are rational, perfectly rational. Magick is not only dangerous to the wielder without reason and without a guru, it is an act of theft from god.
