Part of the responsibility that I have taken on myself is to explain to leaders of the Atheist communities, who are capable of understanding, the deeper occult philosophy and meaning behind some of the religions, that these religions were indeed created by Deists and not Theists, (with the exception of Islam which was created by a violent, illiterate, child rapist, and by illiterate I mean he couldn’t read) I wanted to explain to Fidem some of the experiences she herself is going through as explained by kabbalah and Aleister Crowley’s poetry being that he was conversant in multiple different systems, as I am, to see if she gleans anything useful from it.
Below is the tree of life, it is a Qabbalist metaphor and a memory peg system. The theory of everything was created a long time ago by men that I refer to as the super-genii. They didn’t have computers back in the day so they had to remember things by uploading these memory peg systems. The curious thing about these systems is after a period of time forcing yourself to use them the system seems to start organizing information for you. We do have cellular memory and their is a portion of ourselves that recognizes and remembers this system and reactivates. The ancient super-genii weren’t a little smarter than we are today, they were a lot smarter, as we will see.
If one were to take the philosophy of astrology (prior to the discoveries 7 original planet system) and over lap it with the tree of life, and overlay that with the major tarot arcanum, you would have the fully fleshed out theory of everything. The reason that I say the theory of everything is that everything only makes sense or can make sense to the human brain. It is the human brain that makes sense of everything, the human brain is an important component in the universe.
Qabalah has been called “the western meditation tradition” and indeed it links us back to the traditions of India being the western version of the chakra system. Qabalah is jewish mysticism based on the Zohar, in a manner of speaking “Zohar” means light. What is fascinating is that most jews are forbidden to study Qabbalah and even the ones that are doing it aren’t doing it correctly anymore because of an innate fear instilled in them by Jewish religious leaders. They confuse being Jewish with being able to do Qabbalah correctly, but most of them are told to focus on the path workings, which means they never get around to meditating on the sephiroth. This is done to give them a sense that they are studying Qabalah without ever getting anything from it. Part of this problem comes from the fact that every time there has been a Qabbalist renaissance, their has been a revolution. The last qabbalist renaissance was in Spain about 300 years ago, right before the Jews got kicked out of Spain.
Qabbalah, in essence, is a reinterpretation of the scripture, the Jewish religion predisposes itself to this kind of plasticity because the Pentateuch, the first 5 books of the bible, the extended version of god’s name has been devowelated, thereby predisposing itself to controversy and different interpretations, this creates a pattern something like the Sanatana Dharma inside the Jewish faith, since nobody can ultimately prove their absolute correctness or the absolute incorrectness of anybody else and since you can’t change a single letter of the pentateuch on threat of death, their is a type of equality cemented between Jews with different interpretations of the Scripture. When times are bad on returns to the scripture and reinterprets it to remain faithful to the ancestors and still to maintain an identity in a time of turbulent change and in this manner retaining the wisdom of the Fathers.
Origins of the word
The term cabal derives from Cabala (a word that has numerous spelling variations), the Jewish mystical interpretation of the Hebrew scripture. In Hebrew it means “reception” or “tradition”, denoting the sod (secret) level of Jewish exegesis. In European culture (Christian Cabala, Hermetic Qabalah) it became associated withoccult doctrine or a secret.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabal#Origins_of_the_word
A political cult is a cult with a primary interest in political action and ideology. Groups that some writers have termed as “political cults,” mostly advocating far-left or far-right agendas, have received some attention from journalists and scholars. In their 2000 book On the Edge: Political Cults Right and Left, Dennis Tourish and Tim Wohlforth discuss about a dozen organizations in the United States and Great Britain that they characterize as cults.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult#Political_cults
NOW HERE IS THE PART THAT APPLIES TO YOU FIDEM
Technically, Fidem, you are highly spiritually and morally evolved, I realized this as soon as I met you, I know that you have French Jewish DNA. Mary Magdalene went to France after Jesus death, with a girl named Black Sara or Kali Sara, you Fidem are a Kali monad, specifically this one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durga) There was a Qabbalist renaissance in France too, the Cathars, they claimed that the Roman Catholic Church was too motivated by money, and the RCC sacked the castle.
You Fidem are in the top 1% of society as far as morality and higher philosophy go. Most people can’t get as high as you are in 1,000 life times. You will prove this to yourself over time. People have their ceilings, I would direct you to the linguistic barrier in philosophy if you want to go as high as you can.
NOW THIS IS WHERE IT GETS WEIRD
All of the sephiroth below the supernal triad are in da’ath, the sephiroth that doesn’t exist, because the Jews were the cult of 10, they were obsessed with the number 10, they are the source of the decimal system. 10 commandments, tithing, 10 plagues, etc.
A tithe (/ˈtaɪð/; from Old English: teogoþa “tenth”) is a one-tenth part of something, paid as a contribution to a religious organization or compulsory tax to government. Today, tithes are normally voluntary and paid in cash, cheques, orstocks, whereas historically tithes were required and paid in kind, such as agricultural products. Several European countries operate a formal process linked to the tax system allowing some churches to assess tithes.
Oh, wait, I forgot something, I have to go back. All of the patriarchs of the bible are associated with systems of magick, which is why they were written into the bible in the form of a mythological allegory.
The 6th and 7th books of Moses form the basis of modern voodoo. When you are fighting an enemy that has all of the resources with no resources you use voodoo. The 10 plagues were a form of Voodoo. The last plague was an evocation of Azrael, the Archangel of death.
Back to you. As I was saying before the 7 sephiroth below Da’ath are in Da’ath. Da’ath is considered the abyss, the attempt of the wizard/guru is to cross the abyss. The Dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns is the ultimate power in the abyss, the physical world, any light you bring into the world marginalizes it’s authority and wounds it’s ego. That corresponds to the 7 chakras, Jesus removed 7 demons from Mary Magdalene, he brought her to spiritual perfection. She was his main student. He succeeded in bringing the true religion to the west but not through the RCC instead rather through Freemasonry, the Western Guru Tradition, of which he was a member as was Shams, Rumi’s inspiration.
The Dragon is ego consciousness, it can control everybody in ego consciousness. When you cross the abyss you are in super ego and no longer under the influence of the ego consciousness. Not being able to get to you or at you the dragon attacks those close to you turning them on you. Anybody in ego consciousness is a potential danger.
What you are experiencing right now is called the curse of the Magus. Da’ath corresponds to the visuddha chakra or the voice. Pay close attention to Scriptures 19 and 20…
sub Figura I
00. One is the Magus; twain His forces; four His weapons. These are the Seven Spirits of Unrighteousness; seven vultures of evil. Thus is the art and craft of the Magus but glamour. How shall He destroy Himself?
0. Yet the Magus hath power upon the Mother both directly and through Love. And the Magus is Love, and bindeth together That and This in his conjuration.
1. In the beginning doth the Magus speak Truth, and send forth Illusion and Falsehood to enslave the soul. Yet therein is the Mystery of Redemption.
2. By His Wisdom made He the Worlds; the Word that is God is none other than He.
3. How then shall He end His speech with Silence? For He is Speech.
4. He is the first and the last. How shall He cease to number Himself?
5. By a Magus is this writing made known through the mind of a Magister. The one uttereth clearly, and the other understandeth; yet the Word is falsehood, and the Understanding darkness. And this saying is Of All Truth.
6. Nevertheless it is written; for there be times of darkness, and this as a lamp therein.
7. With the Wand createth He.
8. With the Cup preserveth He.
9. With the Dagger destroyeth He.
10. With the Coin redeemeth He.
11. His weapons fulfil the wheel; and on What Axle that turneth is not known unto Him.
12. From all these actions must He cease before the curse of His Grade is uplifted from Him. Before He attain to That which existeth without Form.
13. And if at this time He be manifested upon earth as a Man, and therefore is this present writing, let this be His method, that the curse of His grade, and the burden of His attainment, be uplifted from Him.
14. Let Him beware of abstinence from action. For the curse of His grade is that He must speak Truth, that the Falsehood thereof may enslave the souls of men. Let him then utter that without Fear, that the Law may be fulfilled. And according to His Original Nature will that law be shapen, so that one may declare gentleness and quietness, being an Hindu; and another fierceness and servility, being a Jew; and yet another ardour and manliness, being an Arab. Yet this matter toucheth the mystery of Incarnation, and is not here to be declared.
15. Now the grade of a Magister teacheth the Mystery of Sorrow, and the grade of a Magus the Mystery of Change, and the grade of Ipsissimus the Mystery of Selflessness, which is called also the Mystery of Pan.
16. Let the Magus then contemplate each in turn, raising it to the ultimate power of Infinity. Wherein Sorrow is Joy, and Change is Stability, and Selflessness is Self. For the interplay of the parts hath no action upon the whole. And this contemplation shall be performed not by simple meditation— how much less then by reason? but by the method which shall have been given unto Him in His Initiation to the Grade.
17. Following which method, it shall be easy for Him to combine that trinity from its elements, and further to combine Sat-Chit-Ananda, and Light, Love, Life, three by three into nine that are one, in which meditation success shall be That which was first adumbrated to Him in the grade of Practicus (which reflecteth Mercury into the lowest world) in Liber XXVII, “Here is Nothing under its three Forms.”
18. And this is the Opening of the Grade of Ipsissimus, and by the Buddhists it is called the trance Nerodha-Samapatti.
19. And woe, woe, woe, yea woe, and again woe, woe, woe unto seven times be His that preacheth not His law to men!
20. And woe also be unto Him that refuseth the curse of the grade of a Magus, and the burden of the Attainment thereof.
21. And in the word CHAOS let the Book be sealed; yea, let the Book be sealed.
You are beyond the abyss, don’t cling to anything in the abyss for your own sake. Speak your truth. I know that you have had some interesting experiences, one might refer to them as spiritual or supernatural. There is such a thing as magick, but very few people can actually use it. First you have to become the philosopher king, removing all of the cognitive biases and logical fallacies. Once you have done this things will start to happen. They are already happening for you.
Siddhis[note 1] are spiritual, magical, paranormal, or supernatural powers acquired through sadhana (spiritual practices), such asmeditation and yoga. People who have attained this state are formally known as siddhas.
Siddhi is a Sanskrit noun which can be translated as “perfection”, “accomplishment”, “attainment”, or “success”. In Tamil the word Siddhar/Chitthar refers to someone who has attained the Siddhic powers & knowledge. Chith is pure consciousness/knowledge in Sanskrit also.
I am a linguistic philosopher and a psycholinguist. I find the history of language fascinating and the way it predisposes itself to certain emergent properties in the culture. I am a bit of a linguistic determinist in that I do think the thought tools included in a language keep the people in that culture thinking a certain way, especially if the language is dogmatically kept from evolving. Very few people have the ability to rise above the linguistic barrier, and see the forms of the good themselves, (plato’s cave) without the help of meditation or hallucinogenic or mind expanding experimentation. If you don’t give yourself permission, artistic license to coin new phrases or to express yourself poetically in new ways, you will not see or do anything new or unpredictable.
Back in the day, every civilization had a priest class, and only they could read and write, languages were very complicated, 2,000 hieroglyphs in Egyptian and 80,000 Chinese characters. Only the aristocracy was allowed to read and write and they made the laws, they were the deciders, they did all of the thinking. I am of a particular school of thought that believes that Abraham and Brahma are one and the same person. I am not the only person that thinks this, others have come to the same conclusion, furthermore, evidence has been found of a patriarchial ancestor matching the description of Abraham. (http://www.aish.com/ci/sam/48936742.html) My personal theory is that Abraham created a mutation and that mutation dealt with reading. If you observe people that do not have direct blood line with Abraham what you will notice is a marked difficulty and even disinterest in reading, sometimes even having problems like Dyslexia as is the case with Native Americans, what is interesting to note is that Mexicans from Mexico City have less of a problem with reading, and they have Spanish DNA.
If you read the Kabbalistic writings from around 300 years ago in spain you find some very interesting things on how Abraham attracted god’s attention by creating. In the act of creating artistically he was acting like god the creator and attracted god’s attention and blessing. There are even meditations on how to psych yourself up before setting hand to paper.
“Heresy arises as a pained outcry to liberate us from this strange, narrow pit, to raise us from the darkness of letters and platitudes to the light of thought and feeling. Such heresy eventually takes its stand in the centre of morality. It has a temporary legitimacy, for it must consume the filthy froth clinging to mindless faith. [………..] On the desolate ruins wrought by heresy, the sublime knowledge of God will build her temple.”
― Daniel Chanan Matt, The Essential Kabbalah: The Heart of Jewish Mysticism
You think about literary revolutions like the Gutenberg press and how it allowed everybody to have their own bible, and then later how the printing presses were used in revolutions in order to print one’s own propaganda, or apologetics, or polemics, in order to influence the minds of others and to express one’s own perspective on reality, what sweeping changes these were. If you think about ideas moving across continents and through time and which philosophies and concepts they retained and which they discarded that too is interesting. Which philosophies succeeded and so were kept. Which one’s were forgotten and so the people perished or dispersed.
Some languages allowed for things to be expressed more quickly yet more informally, causing them to sound banal or crass or low brow.
Hieratic is a cursive writing system, used in the provenance of the pharaohs in Egypt and Nubia, that developed alongside the hieroglyphic system, to which it is intimately related. It was primarily written in ink with a reed brush on papyrus, allowing scribes to write quickly without resorting to the time-consuming hieroglyphs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hieratic
English, for example, is currently the Lingua franca of science.
A lingua franca also called a bridge language, or vehicular language, is a language systematically (as opposed to occasionally, or casually) used to make communication possible between persons not sharing a mother tongue, in particular when it is a third language, distinct from both mother tongues.
The term “lingua franca“, Italian for “Frankish language”, is from a particular example, Mediterranean Lingua Franca. Lingua Franca was a mixed languagecomposed mostly (80%) of Italian with a broad vocabulary drawn from Old French, Greek, Arabic, Portuguese, Occitan and Spanish. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingua_franca
Not many people know this but the reason that America doesn’t have a national language is because the French, Germans, and British throughout history were constantly warring with one another. So in order to choose a national language, that would have created a disparate impact in favor of one particular group. Also our law code is an amalgam of french law and British law, which is why we have redundancies and invasive french terminology.
Ponder the language Aramaic…
Aramaic (Classical Syriac: ܐܪܡܝܐAramaya) is a family of languages (traditionally referred to as “dialects”) belonging to the Semitic family. More specifically, it is a part of the Northwest Semitic subfamily, which also includes Canaanite languages such as Hebrew and Phoenician. The Aramaic script was widely adopted for other languages and is ancestral to both the Arabic and modern Hebrewalphabets.
During its over 3,000 years of written history, Aramaic has served variously as a language of administration of empires and as a language of divine worship. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aramaic
The language no longer exists today but it was the language of a people that wandered, hunter gatherers, back and forth across a vast territory, exposing themselves to many ideas and philosophies, that was one of the languages that Jesus spoke. No wonder he could connect with so many people and speaking their language convey something to them, touch them in a way nobody else could. Make connections that nobody else could.
Similar to the Romani who were named after the Romans, and are also known as the Gypsies, when coming from Egypt. Think of how much knowledge and wisdom and understanding was lost when the library at Alexandra was burned, the Treasure trove of the Gnostics and all the Mysteries of Hypatia possibly the wisest woman to ever have lived.
Now contemplate what Islam is doing, literally devolving the species. The fastest growing religion in the world is also the least literate. Why? They are literally devolving the species in terms of literacy. They have re instituted the tyrannical priest class, that tells them what to think and what to do. Saudi Arabia tyrannically controls all of the translating of books into Arabic, they control what people read, they control what people see, and they control what people think. Not only does the language predispose itself to pretension, and arrogance, it also predisposes itself to vagueries, obfuscation, and manipulation, which is built into the language. It allows the person speaking it to say one thing and to mean another, or to translate it differently at different times, to different people, depending on their status. This allows the person with Authority to arbitrarily rank another person, and translate the language in such a way as it puts the person understanding it in a position of power and control. Observe a few examples:
Islam (n.)“religious system revealed by Muhammad,” 1818, from Arabic islam, literally “submission” (to the will of God), from root of aslama “he resigned, he surrendered, he submitted,” causative conjunction of salima “he was safe,” and related to salam “peace.” http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=Islam
The Religion that is spread at sword tip on threat of death is named after Peace, which also means surrender, submit yourself to God at the tip of my sword.
Harem (pronounced [haˈɾem], Turkish, from Arabic: حرم ḥaram “forbidden place; sacrosanct, sanctum”, related to حريم ḥarīm, “a sacred inviolable place; female members of the family” and حرام ḥarām, “forbidden; sacred”) refers to the sphere of women in what is usually a polygynous household and their enclosed quarters which are forbidden to men. The term originated with the Near East. Harems are composed of wives and often sex slaves known as concubines. For the South Asian equivalent, see purdah and zenana.
Here in lies the question, Who is it sacred for? Who is it forbidden for? and who is “family”?
A little exert from a blog on how to learn Arabic:
I have been asked several times at my university in Oman to do a brief “cultural introduction” to native speakers of English from North America and Europe who have come to improve their Arabic. I start by mentioning that there is a large difference between learning how to speak a language and learning how to navigate a culture. Then I segue into a discussion of how to dress appropriately. My watchwords are: no knees or elbows on display in public. Usually, at this point, several of the listeners look angry, disbelieving and/or bored, especially the men wearing tight, casual T-shirts and women in spaghetti-strap underwear shirts.
But when I speak with Western students who are studying Arabic, most of them are dressed casually: sloppy flannel shirts, ripped jeans, shorts, bra straps, and sometimes underwear on display. http://chronicle.com/article/To-Learn-Arabic-You-Have-to/132057/
