ELEKTRONISCHE VOODOO-RITUALE [17 Nov 2005|08:17pm]

ria777
On November 24, 1969, the Sexual Freedom League's sixth birthday, Poland and an SFL associate known as "Mother Boats" founded the Psychedelic Venus Church. The Church defined itself as "a pantheistic nature religion, humanist hedonism, a religious pursuit of bodily pleasure through sex and marijuana (sic)." Its prime deity was "the sex goddess Venus-Aphrodite...in her psychedelic aspect. We see her presiding over nude orgies of fucking and sucking and cannabis: truly venereal religion."

groovy...

in the words of the Sexual Freedom League, "[w]hat would a 'sexually free' human being be like"?

"With the stars in my focus I therefore notice that for the first time in 4,500 years we have a bright and visible pole star, Polaris. The last time was Thuban in 2,700 - 2500 bce which was the 4th Dynasty in Egypt and the period of the pyramid builders. So before last night (if your local sky was clear and you are in the northern hemisphere) the last time we humans could look up at the night sky and see the moving celestial sphere paying court to a star-of-stillness was in the time of the building of the pyramids. Now if you really are star-dreaming then you would have also noted that the winter solstice, the position of the sun for the winter solstice sunrise or sunset[1], has now precessed to the centre of the Milky Way[2] - the ancient and sacred place of Egyptian sky goddess Nut. So now in this 100 year period the Sun is annually reborn from the body of Nut - an event which only repeats once every 12,900 years.[3]

But talk of galactic centres can make many astrologers glaze over, so if you want something a little more local, a little more in your own backyard and you are in the northern hemisphere, then start watching the great bear, Ursa Major. The ancient she-bear walks upon the earth at the time of the annual terrestrial biosphere greening. Every year planet Earth greens in the north and the south at the same time. This of course is the summer for the north and the winter for the south. This, according to biologists, gives the biosphere a type of breath. The earth breathes in CO2 and gives us more oxygen at this time, but in the winter (summer for the south) the greening stops and the earth's breath goes the other way. Since the beginning of our recorded history and human myth, indeed from the period from Thuban to Polaris as our pole stars, the great bear is seen to walk along the local horizon at the time of the greening. Her slow steady plod is provided by the diurnal movement of the night sky. When the winter comes and the growth stops, she is only seen high in the night sky, asleep with her legs in the air. Thus in this period which embraces the dawn of recorded history up to modern times the bear annually awakes as the earth awakes and sleeps as the earth sleeps, indeed in this simple fact could lie the reason for the nature of the naming of that part of the sky."

"Orion/Osiris was God. The constellation was not a symbol of God, it was god; god's physical place or appearance, in the same way that Sirius in Canis Major was the dwelling place of Isis... The effects of precession caused the god to slip lower and lower in the sky... The constellation Orion managed to rise for roughly two thousand years but the Egyptians knew that their immortal god was moving into the whirlpool taking the journey across the water as he slipped into the underworld.

To account for these observations, the Egyptians developed the concept of an immortal god dying and passing on his throne to his son. Now, one of the features of the constellation Orion is that it contains a bright red star called Betelgeuse, found in Orion's right shoulder. By coincidence, the constellation Taurus, the next constellation to herald the dawn of the equinox, also contains a bright red star, by the name of Aldebaran. So, as Osiris died and was replaced by the stars of Taurus, the natural "heir" to the solar throne appeared. This constellation ws therefore considered to be the son of Osiris, Horus. Osiris became the god of the underworld or afterlife, and Horus, his son, ruled the new world order... Many modern theologians/mythologists agree that this precessional movment of Orion is the source of the religious concept of an afterlife given to us by a god who dies. Osiris/Orion is a "prefiguring of Christ."

"No. 2 Disks is on the stocks, is the serpent's eye to be red? It is a bit awkward, as there are several colours introduced in that card which do not belong to Jupiter and Capricorn, I mean the 4 element colours and they make inharmonious patches. Did you say anything about jewels on the serpent? I think you will like him. The vile lettering will have to start again, it makes me cross and ache all over. letter from Freida Harris (artist of Thoth desk) to Aleister Crowley. (emphasis added)

http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acropolis/1896/crowhar.html

"The Two of Disks has the symbol of infinity incorporated in it:

About them is entwined a green Serpent (see Liber 65, chapter iii, verses 17-20). His tail is in his mouth. He forms the figure Eight, the symbol of the Infinite, the equation 0=2.

Note that the green colour signifies Earth, while the Serpent has a crown, with its tail in close proximity, which again suggests "Kether is in Malkuth..."

However, Crowley hints that the Fool card contains the YHVH system, and there are enough clues to show this to be so. We start with the Green Man, Spring and Aries - fiery attributes which fit in with Yod of Yod positive. Dalua/Christ fits in with the ideas of paternity and salvation for Yod of Yod negative. In the Heh section we begin with The Fisherman for the Heh of Yod positive, and the Crocodile for the negative aspect - both of course have watery connotations. Hoor-paar-Kraat is the Son, perfect for Vau positive. There is a potential problem with Zeus Arrhenotheleus and Dionysus Zagreus and Bacchus Diphues, but I suggest that they can be accomodated in the negative phase of Vau. Finally, we can have Baphomet in seventh place. The Summary can be conveniently ignored for these purposes.

There is another interesting idea that connects the Fool card to the Ace of Disks and the Two of Disks - Crowley draws attention to the colour green - the Green Man of Spring, the green of Isis for the Ace of Disks, and the green snake in the 2 of Disks.

Assuming there is some merit in this system, we need to explore exactly what it is we have discovered. Any group of seven in occult work automatically has the connection to the seven planets, but apart from the Green Man, there are no astrological attributions to work with. Some clues can be found in Madame Blavatsky's books, but a clearer explanation of the origins of these ideas are found in Darcy Kuntz's The Golden Dawn Tarot and Arthur Edward Waite.

Kuntz introduces John O'Neill (1837-1895) who believed among other things that:

... the primordial tradition ran on a North-South axis from the Northern Pole and not on a East-West axis as traditionally taught. He also believed that the seven occult Planets were in fact the seven stars or the Big Dipper which circle the Northern Celestial Pole and not Planets at all.

O'Neill's ideas were co-authored with E.A. Wallis-Budge the Egyptologist, into a two volume book "The Night of the Gods: An Inquiry into Cosmic and Cosmogonic Mythology and Symbolism" (1893). The second volume was financed by Alfred Nutt (1856-1910), who wrote about the Holy Grail. There are other authors on Grail romances at this time, at least one of whom was member of AE Waite's Fellowship of the Rosy Cross. It seems that W.B. Yeats was inspired by The Night of the Gods, and that the primordial tradition could be found in an ancient Welsh version of Parsifal. Waite, as we know, had a passion for all things Celtic. Waite met Pamela Coleman Smith (artist of the Rider-Waite tarot deck) when she was working on her play 'Where There is Nothing', which became 'The Unicorn from the Stars' (1907). Charles Williams comments that 'Look, ... these are the twenty-two cards - the twenty-one and the one which is nothing (i.e. The Fool).' WB Yeats met Waite to discuss Arthurian legends.

We have a consistent pattern emerging - the seven planets of Ursa Major (The Great Bear), the North Pole, Parsifal, and 'the twenty-one and the one which is nothing'. Clearly the concept that the Fool should be treated separately from the other cards was already entrenched. However, these ideas were not, and are still not, common currency. Waite, the architect of probably the most popular Tarot deck that spawned a thousand imitations, intended to keep it that way:

My province was to see that the designs - especially those of the important Trumps Major - kept that in the hiddeness which belonged to a certain Greater Mysteries, in the Paths of which I was travelling... I saw to it therefore that Pamela Coleman Smith should not be picking up casually any floating images from my own or another mind. She had to be spoon-fed carefully over the Priestess Card, that which is called the Fool and over the Hanged Man.

Waite, Shadows of Life and Thought, 1938.

The implication here is that even if PCS knew about these ideas, Waite endeavoured to make sure she never incorporated them into her tarot artwork, nor that this was the direction his studies was taking him. This quotation also hints that the Priestess card and the Hanged Man have particular properties as well as the Fool card.

The North Pole and the Princesses

The Big Dipper, The Plough, the Great Bear, or Ursa Major is the constellation whose stars point to the North Pole. The Pole Star varies over extended lengths of time due to Precession. The Tarot cards have been given astrological attributions as is well known, but there has been a tradition of rulership over various parts of the heavens. The Princesses are unique in Tarot, in that they are given rulership over the quadrants of the world:

In the Book "T", it is written: "Also the Dragon (i.e. Draco, the constellation at the Northern pole of the Heavens) surroundeth the Pole Kether of the Celestial Heavens." It is further laid down that the Four Aces, (symbolized by the Princesses and Amazons), rule the Celestial Heavens from the Northern Pole of the Zodiac unto the 45th degree of Latitude North of the Ecliptic, and from the Thrones of the Four Aces which rule in Kether."

figure 8 out [18 Mar 2005|12:36am]

invisibleava
Crowley describes the infinity symbol as representing "heaven on earth or lower sephiroth plus Daath (or 7 planets plus Sothis [aka Sirius]); Mercury; Hod, Ogoad, the Buddhist & other 8 path. Perfection. Strength, fortitude, everlastingness. It is the first cubic number, hence it stands for the cube itself, or earth. Splendour of endurance."
http://raath.org/lemniscate.php

"The lemniscate is a hallmark symbol of the Stellar Cult. It serves to represent the Milky Way or even the planet Mercury. Properly, it was to symbolize the ecliptic and the zodiac. The Stellar Cult were the first astrologers. The zodiac and its ordinances was their great theatre and Mystery School. The lemniscate connotes the relationship between microcosm and macrocosm which are the same thing seen from two different perspectives. These two polarities have been termed Nuith (ever expansive) and Hadit (ever contractive) by Aleister Crowley. They are also known as the Yin and Yang, the Prolific and the Devouring or the Nagual and the Tonal. The lemniscate's meaning is similar to the Yin-Yang. They both contain the "point" and the "wave" motif, implying both stasis and movement. This latter image is also called the "eyes of the serpent." The esoteric letter of the card is Teth, meaning serpent.

The card pictorializes the Precessional Age of Leo which existed between 10,970 and 8,810 BC. This is about the time when temple construction at Gizeh began. In regards the cosmology and pantheon of Egypt this eighth card relates to the Sphinx which is a sculpture featuring exactly what this card shows, namely, a lady and a lion. The little hill behind the figures is meant to be the Pyramid. The Sphinx whose erection long predates the pyramids represented the ancient Egyptian zodiacal year which opened in the sign of Virgo. This sign was then, as now, symbolized by a handsome female or goddess. Their zodiac and year then closed, twelve months later, in the sign previous to Virgo, which is Leo, the symbol of which was always the lion. The head of the Sphinx even faced the constellations of Leo and Virgo which rose on the horizon in those days. So in stone, we have the opening and closing of the Sidereal Year, proving that the Egyptians were master astrologers and were intent on having this fact commemorated for posterity. Later, in the myth of Christ, we have it written that he was the son of a "Virgin." This statement would have caused a great deal less confusion if it was realized that the reference was again to the zodiac and the sun of god rather than the son. To the ancient Egyptian Siderealist Magi the sun was indeed "born" of the Virgin or more correctly in the Virgin, that is Virgo. When the sun entered this sign the year and the journey of the hero (Horus/Christ) began. Christians still have their holy celebrations to the Virgin Mary, of her annunciation and assumption, in the sign of Virgo."
http://www.taroscopes.com/highwindowsarticles/strength.html

"But this 'Nameless Aeon' is all-ways present, thus the recurrent symbology/mythology of the Horned God/dess. It is the central core or axis of the aeonic caduceus/lemniscate, the sushumna through which the other aeons weave and cross. Just as the beast is always inherent within us despite the veneer of civilization -our underlying animal/instinctual natures- so too is the central dreaming always there, submerged as it may be under some rationalist or materialist paradigm. And to it we shall re-turn...

Crowley emphasised this fact: 'Every man and woman is a star'. The work of the A.^.A.^. , the Astrum Argenteum or Silver Star, continues to guide the 'spiritual evolution of humankind' from (and to?) the stars via the astral plane."

"I want you to imagine that you are walking up a trail in the mountains at night. There is a full moon which lets you see the trail easily, and you can also see quite a lot of your surroundings ...What is this trail like? What else can you see around you? How do you feel as you walk up this mountain trail? ... Just ahead there is a small side trail that leads up higher to a cave that is the home of a very wise man who can tell you the answer to any question. Turn off onto this side trail and walk toward the wise man's cave...Notice how your surroundings change as you move up this trail and come closer to his cave...

When you arrive at the cave, you will see a small campfire in front of the cave, and you will be ablve to fainly see the silent wise man by the light of the dancing flames of the fire...Go up to the fire, put some more wood on it, and sit quietly...As the fire burns more brightly you will be able to see the wise man more clearly. Take some time to really become aware of him--his clothes, his body, his face, his eyes...

Now ask the wise man some question that is important to you.

also:
"The 26,000-year cycle of the precession of the Equinoxes is the period of cosmo-genesis where the realization of mankind’s godhead will be fulfilled. Just as a baby gestates in its mother’s belly for 260 days, the awakening Gaian mind has been forming in the womb of mother earth for 26,000 years. The chaotic and decimated nature of society is emblematic of the birth pangs which a newborn causes just prior to birth. The sociological body, like the baby, when squeezed through the birth-canal of collective transformation fears that its own demise is immanent. All the fanatical fears of fire and brimstone preaching are based upon aeonic birth pangs. The occult world of the late 19th century, with such groups as the Theosophical Society of H.P. Blavatsky, centered much of their research on the Mahaprayala. The Mahaprayala is the great cycle and represents the “Ring Pass Not”, where rational faculties fail to venture. This great cycle represents the sacredly sealed space of Tetragrammaton, Yod He Vau He, the unutterable name of god, as well as the components that comprise the elemental universe. Yod He Vau He in Hebrew Kabbala equals 26. This shows the synchronous divine nature of the 26,000, 260, and 26 alignment. Each of these represents a complete cycle or circle, which can be better demonstrated as an oval or an egg. The cycle, like a clock, is a circle that can be divided into parts. Jehovah, Yod He Vau He, in his wrathful phase can be said to be an aspect of the god form Saturn. Saturn, the scythe bearer, is depicted as a child eater. Once a man is born, the shadow of death and the ravages of time forever hound his heals. It is with the scythe that Saturn, the time god, segments the circle of the year or calendar. At the root of the word calendar is cal or kal. Kali, the goddess of chaos and destruction, bears a sword which also divides the circle of time. Kali, another time deity like Saturn, is wrathful in her appearance, due to man’s fear of time and death. She is depicted wearing a garland of skulls and a skirt of severed arms. Her 10 arms bear Shaivite weapons. Particularly gory is a severed head, which drips into a grail held by yet another arm. From her mouth waggles an elongated, bloody tongue. Kali can often be seen dancing in a chaotic frenzy upon her lover Shiva. Time is divisive and is counting our moments one by one. According to many futurists, the year 2012 represents a break from linear time to trans-temporal dimensions, while absorbing holographically all prior disparate time sequences. This can be likened to the Hindu pantheon, where the dark chaotic and destructive Kali Yuga gives way to the bright and glorious redeemer archetype of the Kalki Avatar."

± 48
Samadhi*
Vitarka

96
States of Consciousness
- 24†
Description
Negative state: pain, guilt, fear, doing what one has to do but in a state of pain, guilt, fear, the state of slightly too much alcohol; of a small amount of opium; of the first stages of lack of sleep.

Gurdjieff Vibration Level
192
States of Consciousness
- 12
Description
Extremely negative body state where one is still in the body, as in an intense migraine attack, in which one's consciousness is shrunk down and inhibited and the awareness is only in the present in one's pain.

Gurdjieff Vibration Level
384
States of Consciousness
- 6

Similar to +6 except it is extremely negative. A purgatory-like situation in which one is only a point source of consciousness and energy; fear, pain, guilt in the extreme; meaninglessness prominent.

Gurdjieff Vibration Level
768
States of Consciousness
- 3
Description
Like +3 in that one is fused with other entities throughout the universe but these are all bad and one's self is bad and meaningless. This is the quintessence of evil, the deepest hell of which one can conceive. This can be extremely high energy state lasting eternally, though by the planetside clock, one is there for only a few minutes. No hope in this state. No hope of escape from it. One is there forever. (See the Cosmic Computer write-up in the chapter entitled "The Guided Tour of Hell".)

* These are from the Science of Yoga by I. K. Tamini, Wheaton Ill.: Quest paperback, Theosophical Pub. 1967, pp. 38 and 61.

† Negative spaces have no real location; each is imagined in the same corresponding location as corresponding positive space.

transcriber's note: the States of Consciousness numbers and descriptions come either from Lilly or from Arica, the mystery school founded by Oscar Ichazo in wich Lilly took part, or, maybe, both. I may link to or transcribe Slanislav Grof's similar model, with differences and similarities, sometime later.

You can't be a hippie sex cult without Gesalt Therapy now, can you? I consider Fritz Perls a great psychotherapist/ scoundrel guru/rabbi/irascible Zen master and I think his techniques, properly applied, can be powerful tools of brain change.

Taken from this site. Great pictures there, too.

"A Life Chronology
Frederick Perls

note: Fritz Perls wrote the following as part of his introduction to the 1969 Random House edition of Ego, Hunger and Aggression.

1893 Time of birth. Place: Berlin. Mother loving, ambitious. Loving the arts, hating father. Father hating mother, loving women; also playing grand master of freemasons; heavy and gay. In public, both friendly. Confusing.

6 Step Reframing [13 Dec 2004|06:11pm]

o_lucky_man
This is an NLP thing here.

"1. Identify the behaviour or response to be changed.

This is usually, 'I want to do something, but something stops me.', or 'I don't want to do something, but I seem to end up doing it just the same.' When working with another, it isn't necessary to know what the behaviour actually is, they can keep it secret, if they like.

Acknowledge the good that the behaviour, or at the least the intention behind the behaviour has done for you in the past. Make clear you aren't going to get rid of it.
2. Establish communication with the part which is responsible for the behaviour

Go inside and ask the part if it is willing to communicate with you in consciousness? Notice the feelings inside of you. This is an unconscious response, so ask yourself: Can you reproduce that signal consciously?

If you can this it isn't it! Because if the response were conscious then it would be easy to turn it off. You could just decide not to do it. For example, when you hear that another has got the job you really longed for, and you want to be decent and congratulate them, but when you do so you feel that sense of discomfort. Can you turn that off? Can you help feeling that way even though you don't want to feel that way? That is the unconscious signal. Establish a communication system. Ask the part to increase the signal for 'Yes' and decrease it for 'No'. Get it to do this several times so you get a 'Yes' and a 'No' signal that are quite clear.
3. Separate the positive intention from the behaviour.

Thank the part for co-operating.

Ask, 'Will the part which is responsible for the behaviour let me know what it is trying to do?' You will get a clear intention which may be a surprise to your conscious mind. Think whether you want the part to do that.

If you get a 'No' signal, you can just assume a positive intention and continue. Or you could ask under what circumstances it would let you know.

Ask the part, 'If you were given ways to accomplish this intention, at least as well, if not better than the present, would you be willing to try them out?' If you get a 'No', your signals are scrambled - no part would turn down an offer like this!
4. Ask your creative part to generate new ways that will accomplish the same purpose.

Ask your creative part to generate as many solutions as it can - you do not need to know what these are consciously. Ask the part being negotiated with to select at least three of these for it to try. Ask it to give you a signal each time it has selected one. Take as long as you need on this part of the process.

Thank your creative part when you have finished.
5. Ask the part if it will agree to use the new choices over the next few weeks, rather than the old behaviour.

This is future rehearsing the new behaviour. There is no reason why the part should not agree to do this. If you get a 'No', then tell it it can still use the old behaviour - only use the new behaviour first. If you still get a 'No', then reframe the objecting part (By going back to step 1).
6. Ecological Check

Go inside and ask, 'Does any part of me object to the new choices?' If there are objections then check them out by asking the part to intensify the signal. If there are objections then you can reframe the part or ask it to get together with the creative part to find more solutions.

Ensure that there are no objecting parts, otherwise they may try to sabotage.
Summary

1. Identify a problem
2. Identify the part, and get different signals for 'Yes' and 'No'.
3. Get the part's positive intention, and ask it 'If you were given ways of achieving this intention just as well or even better than now, would you be willing to try them out for a week or so?'
4. Ask your creative part to generate many possible solutions (it does not have to find only good ones!) while the part in question gives a 'Yes' signal when there is a solution it thinks it might use. Get at least three.
5. Ask the part if it will try these in the next few weeks.
6. Check that there aren't any objecting parts."

Getting high from trance crossposted [06 Dec 2004|03:33pm]

invisibleava
from http://www.trance.edu/gethigh.htm

"Now, if you want to be zonko and know it too, you have to create what I call a charismatic trance, or a centric trance. In this trance you are zonko and want others to be zonko too. For this, you must step out of your own deep trance and teach it to others or at least bring them into your trance. If you live in the woods and listen to the birds, you have to convince people to come with you.

There are a lot of variations within trance. But, basically, to answer your question, you can get quickly into various trance states by allowing yourself to be hypnotized and led into various fantasy states. But these states nearly always come at the price of your freedom or free will or money. Doing it by yourself is safer but takes longer. Becoming a trance virtuoso takes time and practice, but it is doable.

However, if you want to use either a hypnotic or meditation trance to produce an intoxicated trance state this is what you do. Touch your nose if you follow me. And, whenever you touch your nose, you follow me. And, if you are a patient somewhere you can touch your nose anytime and you get into a quick and easy intoxicated trance.

Creating coincidences [01 Dec 2004|11:28am]

o_lucky_man
"Plato didn’t leave instructions. And yet there may be guidebook. It starts with Freud, who first discovered the importance of the subconscious. If you know that your subconscious, your magnet, is attracting what belongs to you, it’s really very simple. You only have to look at what’s happening in your life – the patterns you are attracting – to discover which convictions you apparently have. You only have to ask yourself: what’s in my subconscious that’s attracting this? Why are my relationships continually getting stuck? Why do I always fail at crucial moments?It’s about a spiritual insight; you are the creator of your own life."

Function of the Orgasm (Well, anything by Reich, obviously...)

Saragossa Manuscript

Rabelais

The Manson File? or is that too trendy/obvious?

Some Gurdjieff maybe?

Parsons?

What else?

"There exists a Cosmic Control Center (C.C.C.) with a Galactic substation called Galactic Coincidence Control (G.C.C.). Within which is the Solar System Control Unit (S.S.C.U.), within which is the Earth Coincidence Control Office (E.C.C.O.). The assignments of responsiblities from the top to the bottom of this system of control is by a set of regulations, which translated by E.C.C.O. for humans is somewhat as follows:"

To all humans
If you wish to control coincidences in your own life on the planet Earth, we will cooperate and determine those coincidences for you under the following conditions:


1) You must know/assume/simulate our existence in ECCO


2) You must be willing to accept our responsibility for control of your coincidences.


3) You must exert your best capabilities for your susrvival programs and your own development as an advancing/advanced member of ECCO's earthside corps of controlled coincidence workers. You are expected to use your best intelligence in this service


4) You are expected to expect the unexpected every minute, every hour of every day and of every night.


5) You must be able to maintain conscious/thinking/ reasoning no matter what events we arrange to happen to you. Some of these events will seem cataclysmic/catastrophic/overwhelming: remember stay aware, no matter what happens/apparently happens to you.


6) You are in our training program for life: there is no escape from it. We (not you ) control the long-term coincidences; you (not we) control the shorter-term coincidences by your own efforts.


7) Your major mission on earth is to discover/create that which we do to control the long-term coincidence patterns: you are being trained on Earth to do this job.


8) When your mission on planet Earth is completed, you will no longer be required to remain/return there.


9) Remember the motto passed to us (from GCC via SSCU):
"Cosmic Love is absolutelely Ruthless and Highly Indifferent:
it teaches its lessons whether you like/dislike them or not."

(Excerpt from "The Dyadic Cyclone" by John C. Lilly)
