2 meditationen: lachen/lachen und nicht-anhaften/nicht-uninteressiert sein

3. meditation: änderung von gewohnheiten: „habits in thought, word, and deed are the anchor of the personality. The magician aims to pull up that anchor and cast himself free on the seas of chaos.”

Wichtig: gewohnheiten, die man ablegen möchte, sollte “not involve anything of spiritual, egocentric, or emotional significance”

Sigils (S. 20 ff.)

Sigils warden dann eingesetzt, wenn “the direct intervention of the will” nicht ausreicht, um “bring about the required coincidence”. Die Arbeit mit Sigils besteht aus drei Schritten:

1) Construct a sigil
2) Lose a sigil
3) Charge a sigil

Ad 1: produce a glyph of desire, stylized so as not to immediately suggest desire. Zum beispiel kann der Wunsch aufgeschrieben warden, dann so verkürzt, dass alle buchstaben entfernt warden, die sich wiederholen und dann in 1 zeichen verwandelt warden.

Ad 2: both sigil form and associated desire must be banished from normal waking consciousness

Ad 3: moments when the mind has achieved quiescence through magical trance, or when high emotionality paralyzes its normal functioning. Auch während orgasmus möglich.

Träume (S. 23)

“to assume conscious control over the dream state, it is necessary to select a topic for dreaming. The magician should start with simple experiences, such as the desire to see a particular object (real or imaginery) and master this before attempting divination or exterirozation. The dream is set up by strongly visualizing the desired topic in an otherwise silenced mind, immediately before sleep.”

Gnosis (S. 31 ff.)

“Altered states of conciousness are the key to magical powers. (…) Methods of achieving gnosis can be divided into two types”: inhibitory vs. excitatory

examples for inhibitory: death posture, magical trance, concentration, sleeplessness, fasting, exhaustion, gazing, hypnotic drugs, sensory deprivation

beispiele für excitatory mode: sexual excitation, emotional arousal, pain, torture, flagellation, dancing, chanting, excitatory drugs, mild hallucinogens, sensory overload

Augoeides (S. 49)

“The magician’s most important invocation is that of his Genius, Daemon, True Will or Augoeides. This operation is traditionally known as the Knowledge and Converstaion of the Holy Guardian Angel. (…) The Augoiedes may be defined as the most perfect vehicle of Kia on the plane of duality. (…) The operation of obtaining the knowledge and conversation is usually a lengthy one. The magician is attempting a progressive metamorphosis, a complete overhaul of his entire existence. Yet he has to seek the blueprint for his reborn self as he goes along. Life is less the meaningless accident it seems. Kia has incarnated in these particular conditions of duality for some purpose. (…) Each incarnation represents a task, or a puzzle to be solved, on the way to some greater form of completion. The key to this puzzle is in the phenomena of the plane of duality in which we find ourselves. We are, as it were, trapped in a labyrinth or maze. The only thing to do is move about and keep a close watch on the way the walls turn. In a completely chaotic universe such as this one, there are no accidents. Everything is significant. (…) A perdon doing his true will is assistend by the momentum of the universe and seems possessed of amazing good luck. In beginning the great work of obtaining the knowledge and conversation, the magician vows to ‘interpret every manifestation of existence as a direct message from the infinite Chaos to himself personally’. To do this is to enter the magical world view in its totality.” 49

Divination (S. 52 ff.)

“The best methods of obtaining symbolic intermediate results are those which are just below the threshold of deliberateness but above the threshold of pure randomness. Shamanistic type methods involving the casting of bones, stones,or stickes marked with runes are simplest and best.” 53

“normal congress, the genital embrace of opposed sexes, should in any manifestation, magical or not, inspire the participants with something, if only mutual attachment. Emplyed magically it can provideamplified inspiration for almost anything.

The lunar current of the priestess is observed for a day in which the libido is strong. In the priest, the libido is strengthened by conversation. Retiring to the place ofworking,each attains the silence of the mind by any favored method. For example, they may kneel before each other in the dragon position and perform the preliminaireis of the death posture. Then they become conjointed in a stimulatory embrace. As congress occursthe subject forinspirations or its sigil is meditated on as the mountain of excitation is gradually c limbed. As the final step is taken the desireis abandoned to the subconscious. After the cataclysm the celebrants aim to remain vacuous but alert, to allow the inspiration to manifest.” (S. 70)

Millenium (S. 88 f.)

“Humnanity has evolved through four major states of conciousness, or aeons, and a fifth is on the horizon.” 88

1: shamanism – the rulers of men had a firm grasp on the psychis forces

2: paganism – beginning of agriculture and cities, knowledge of psychic forces became confused

3: monotheism – Judaism, Christianity, islam – man worship a singular, idealized form of themselves

4: atheism – not a negation of monotheism but “contains the radical and positive notions that the universe can be understoodand manipulated by carefulobservation of the behaviour of materialthings”

some cultures have remained in one aeon whil others have swept forward, but most have never completely freed themselves from the past

the time for anaeon change shortens as history progresses, atheism since couple of hundred of years, monotheism since 2500-3000 years, pagan since 6000 years and shamanism since humanity

“evolution of conciousness is cyclic in the form of an upward spiral. The fifth aeon represents a return to the consciousness of the first aeon but in a higher form” 89

predicted changes: death of spirituality, death of superstition, death of identity, death of belief, death of ideology

“the fifth aeon has the potential to be a great renaissance when mighty deeds will be done upon the earth and Chaoist philosophy shall hurl men to the corners of the galaxy and into the very epicentre of their being. Either that or a new dark age.” 102

reincarnation (S. 103 f.)

“integral reincarnation is the final metamorphosis. (…) the adept magician will have so strengthenede his spirit by magic that it possible for him to carry ir over whole into a new body. (…) three forms: red, black, and white rites.” 103

red rite:

“this rite can only be performed by male adepts and is performed when the adept’s body has become very aged or damaged. The adept takes a young, strong female and forms a powerful love bond to her. He impregnates her and then during the early stages of the pregnancy, within the first two months, he voluntarily ends his present existence. The powers of the adept developed in astral travel workings, coupled with the effects of the love bon to the mother, cause a reincarnation into the developing fetus.”

Black rite:

“forceful eentry of a spirit into the body of an already inhabited being.” Dangerous and unreliable

white rite

integral reincarnation, “but the receiving body is a fetus randomly selected by the escaping spirit in astral flight.” It may be wise to carry an aetheric marker
