“Can’t Get the Vertical Without the Horizontal”

Hello students of the mysteries, this is Noah Socrates speaking to you via Aetheriphone.  Today we will discuss one of the golden verses of Shivastus Solomonicus. I am here in the Akashic Library preparing to expound on what it was that our brother meant.  Though this particular parchment was lost to history I from my vantage point, my perch if you will out of time have the ability to restore the text as I can see it while he was writing it.  So here is what Shivastus wrote as he explained his philosophic calculus:

In my long life it has been my privilege to observe human behavior and to document the patterns that end in success and those that end in failure.  Some groups are astoundingly successful in spite of their lack of righteousness and virtue and others are not while others fail in spite of their beatifications.  When I was creating the Zed I made certain that if they followed my instructions and upheld my covenant they would see success for all of their hard work.  Their is a proper way to relate to one another, this relationship that governs success in relationship existed before the heavens and the earth existed.  The early greek philosophers knew of it, many gurus in India knew of it, some Kabbalist rabbis still know of it, Rumi and Shams knew of it.  Every religion in its uncorrupted form is based on it. Every science and structure of authority is based on it insofar as they haven’t been tarnished. 

There are many ways to speak of it but their is only one way to practice it.  Equality under reason, the praxis of the rational, the walking on the path, but these metaphors do not predispose themselves to being understood so one needs a guru a teacher, the philosopher king.  Observe the way the bible spoke of this relationship:

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”  Matt. 18:20

      “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
The buddha/krishna/christ consciousness separates itself into 4 attributes just like the tetragrammaton, those four are Love, Justice, Wisdom, and Responsibility.  The act of theurgy is to integrate these 4 elements correctly realizing that the center of the cross is not separate from it’s 4 extensions.  So they cannot live in a vacuum.  An act cannot be just but unwise and unloving.  Just as an act cannot be loving but irresponsible and unwise.  The trick is to make every act just, loving, wise, and responsible at the same time.

Upon incarnating in physical existence we all sign a contract to make ourselves like god and to understand god, he is the Macrocosm and we the Microcosm.  We perform on a smaller scale what he performs on a grand scale.  We call this theurgy, performing the work of god.  We learn from our trials to be like god.  We integrate the 4 elements like an alchemist, the quintessence is love but it is an intelligent, wise, responsible, and just love.  We are the prodigal children and our job is to understand the plight of the creator, he wants to be understood, after all we can’t love what we don’t understand, neither can we appreciate it.  So just as tiphareth in the sephyr yetzirah we must perform the duty of the Christ and marry the elements of our nature.

God only exists in proper, equal, relationship which means nobody over estimates their value or their needs.  Crazy people and evil people are not less self-interested, they are more self-interested.  They vex the spirit focusing on the letter of the law instead of the spirit of the law and thereby they thwart reason.  One dirty dog can ruin all of the saffron water of an entire village.  In military strategy their is one major rule, never fight a battle on two fronts, but we truthseekers, sadakas, tzaddicks, Zed do not have that privelege.  The war against ego, or idolatry because all over emphasis is a subtle form of idolatry must contend with egotism internally as well as externally.
This word “agree” came from the cult of the augure’s that created the entire philosophy of the western civilization from religion to science to structures of authority to the rules governing the powers and duties of the president of the united states.  There are certain things that presuppose this type of relationship, communication, participation, agreement,and understanding.  Without these things god doesn’t exist.  God is reason in man, and his power cannot and will not be unleashed without proper relationship, all must recognize the authority of reason and submit to it.  Even the word Authority hearkens back to the cult of the Augures, the word auctoritas, august, agora, and augury.  The ancient word for reason was so complicated that it doesn’t even translate into this modern language and for the most part it has been forgotten about.  It is the ability of man to arrive at the correct conclusion through conversation, thought, experimentation, participation, and agreement.  It is that which succeeds and survives and gets good results.

Since St. Thomas journeyed to the east and created Mahayana Buddhism there has been an ancient similitude between the original uncorrupted teachings of the Christ and those of Shiva and Buddha.  The ineffable name can only be spoken through one’s thoughts, feelings, actions, and words, which is why it is unspeakable.  This is a little known secret that I am revealing to you.  Compare it if you will the the eightfold path that frees one from the wheel of karma…

There is only one reason on this planet.  There is not feminine reason and male reason, there is not eastern reason and western reason, there is only reason.  Do not be distracted with other things, your walking on your path and perfecting your soul which is your philosophy is the destination.  The walking on the path is the destination.  Do not be concerned with arriving.  In this life or the next it is the walking on the path that takes you where you want to go.  Nowhere else is worth going, no other path brings you to yourself, every other heaven is a distraction and it is impermanent, cling instead to your path and your theurgy.  
I exhort you.
