"So Adolf Hitler made the acquaintance of the Honorable Unity Valkyrie Freeman-Mitford, daughter of the 2nd Baron Redesdale, a British peer. Referring to her as "Walkure," Eva Braun speaks of this girl in contemptuous and suspicious terms in her diary (kept before her second suicide attempt)."

"Well, she was speaking in the square to many people, speaking about the presence of Self, and they were listening to her in silence. Then a fanatic horde interrupted, hands and hands came down upon her, they tore her clothes and her flesh, they pushed her into the church of Christ, and there they finished her. There she died on the floor of the temple."

Let the bleeding wombs of young women become the fertile ground upon which dark sperm is sewn!

Friday, December 15, 2006

I am the Black Star, my heart is Infinite Darkness.
Together, we struggle against ignorance and illusion - even to every Buddha!

Those whose goals are peace and love, freedom and harmony,
I bring empty suffering and lustful tragedy!
Know your self-created delusion as it runs like blood from your vile corpse!

Deluded humanoids, able to cause great harm,
Only I stand as challenger upon your 'path of oneness'.

Humanoids are wrathful entities of pain and horror,
Mindlessly insane temptors of Blackness - who in truth would bring only enslavement -
against each I struggle then strangle!

I alone have been shown the means to overwhelm their vile deceptions,
Their words of 'guilt' and 'fear', of 'perfect love' and 'perfect trust', are but dried leaves upon
my Greater Journey of Self.

For those karma seekers and prayer mumblers and kneeling incantors of dead verses,
I say - "Fear Me! For I am a Wrathful Being of Darkness, whose powers have broken free from the bondage of ignorance to imbrace that which alone is Worthy!"

From my Black Star bursts forth a Black Flame,
And from my Black Flame bursts forth a Black Star,
visible to the dark mind - like black lightening, rays projecting like horrible daggers to rip away the blind mind - to reveal the true entrance to the temple.

Gods do not exist! Yet I command them!
Souls do not exist! Yet I command them!
The Void does not exist! Yet I travel its dark depths!

I am the black warrior upon a black horse bearing a black star that turns ignorance to ash, that reveals the naked ascetic as a derelict, that slays the Buddha beneath the tree.

Such is my Black Passion!
If you seek what I am .. then find it yourself!
If you seek to manipulate self .. then do so yourself!
If you seek power, wealth and fame .. then create it yourself!

"Get it into your head once and for all, my simple and very fainthearted fellow, that what fools call humanness is nothing but a weakness born of fear and egoism; that this chimerical virtue, enslaving only weak men, is unknown to those whose character is formed by stoicism, courage, and philosophy."

"Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we're going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities: the political, the religious, the educational authorities, who have attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rule, regulations. Informing, forming in our minds an inner view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to immerse yourself in a state of vulnerable open-mindedness-- chaotic, confused vulnerability to which you owe yourself. Think for yourself. Question authority."

Abby of Theleme

"All their life was spent not in laws, statutes, or rules, but according to their own free will and pleasure. They rose out of their beds when they thought good; they did eat, drink, labour, sleep, when they had a mind to it and were disposed for it. None did awake them, none did offer to constrain them to eat, drink, nor to do any other thing; for so had Gargantua established it. In all their rule and strictest tie of their order there was but this one clause to be observed,

Do What Thou Wilt;

because men that are free, well-born, well-bred, and conversant in honest companies, have naturally an instinct and spur that prompteth them unto virtuous actions, and withdraws them from vice, which is called honour. Those same men, when by base subjection and constraint they are brought under and kept down, turn aside from that noble disposition by which they formerly were inclined to virtue, to shake off and break that bond of servitude wherein they are so tyrannously enslaved; for it is agreeable with the nature of man to long after things forbidden and to desire what is denied us."

Into a soul absolutely free
From thoughts and emotion,
Even the tiger finds no room
To insert its fierce claws.

One and the same breeze passes
Over the pines on the mountain
And the oak trees in the valley;
And why do they give different notes?

No thinking, no reflecting,
Perfect emptiness;
Yet therein something moves,
Following its own course.

The eye sees it,
But no hands can take hold of it -
The moon in the stream.

Clouds and mists,
They are midair transformations;
Above them eternally shine the sun and the moon.

Victory is for the one,
Even before the combat,
Who has no thought of himself,
Abiding in the no-mind-ness of Great Origin.

"Spirituality conceiveth and embraceth. It is womanlike and therefore we call it Mater Coelestis, the celestial mother. Sexuality engendereth and createth. It is manlike, and therefore we call it Phallos, the earthly father. The sexuality of man is more of the earth, the sexuality of woman is more of the spirit. The spirituality of man is more of the heaven, it goeth to the greater. The spirituality of woman is more of the earth, it goeth to the smaller. Each must go to its own place."

Q: I can see that the basic biological anxiety, the flight instinct, takes many shapes and distorts my thoughts and feelings. But how did this anxiety come into being?

A: It is a mental state caused by the 'I am-the-body' idea. It can be removed by the contrary idea: 'I am-not-the-body'. Both the ideas are false, but one removes the other. Realize that no ideas are your own, they all come to you from outside. You must think it all out for yourself, become yourself the object of your meditation. The effort to understand yourself is Yoga. Be a Yogi, give your life to it, brood, wonder, search, till you come to the root of error and to the truth beyond the error.

"Hallihoo. Children born with a hallihoo, a holy or fortunate hood, or caul around their heads, are deemed lucky, but the caul must be preserved carefully, for should it be lost or thrown away, the child will pine away or die. Seamen used to purchase cauls to save them from drowning. Advocates also bought them so that they might thereby be imbued with eloquence. Twenty quineas were asked for one in 1779, L12 in 1813, six guineas in 1848. In this last case, the caul was of some antiquity, and L15 had orginally been given for it by a seaman who had carried it with him for thirty years"

"The goal of the mystic quest is union with the Divine. The mystic renounces this world and its attractions, and proceeds along the various stages and states of mystical experience. Some of these stages and states are attained by self-discipline and some are the gift of God. The final stage and state of mystical attainment is the experience of divine knowledge and vision in which the mystic becomes one with the Beloved, and abides in the Beloved forever. In such a relationship between the mystic and the Beloved there is no room for the distinction of sex."

Wagner, the Wehr-Wolf

Written by George W. Reynolds in 1846, this was the first book to portray a werewolf as a hero:

From the penny novel:
Wagner was a German peasant who sold his soul to the devil; in exchange, the devil transformed into a werewolf every seven years. Unusual for the period, there was a female heroine as well, Nisida, who always helped Wagner; though, she was also a murderess. Eventually, Wagner was able to free himself from this 'curse' via the Rosicrucians.

"Can it be that I have werewolf blood in my veins? After all…
Even he who is pure of heart
And says his prayers by night
May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
And the moon is full and bright."

I was certain it was a lion, even though I had never seen one in the flesh, and the artist had reproduced its features faithfully, inspired perhaps by the sight of the lions of Hibernia, land of monstrious creatures, and I was convinced that this animal, as for that matter the Physiologus says, concentrates on itself all the characteristics of the things at once most horrible and most regal. So that image suggested to me both the image of the Enemy and that of Christ our Lord, nor did I know by what symbolic key I was to read it, and I was trembling all over, out of fear and also because of the wind coming through the fissures in the walls."

The Old Cat and the Young Mouse

To please a youthful prince, whom Fame
A temple in my writings vows,
What fable answers to the name,
"The Cat and Mouse?"

Shall I in verse the fair present,
With softest look but hard intent,
Who serves the hearts her charms entice
As does the cat its captive mice?

Or make my subject Fortune's sport?
She treats the friends that make her court,
And follow closest her advice,
As treats the cat the silly mice.

Shall I for theme a king select
Who sole, of all her favourites,
Commands the goddess's respect?
For whom she from her wheel alights.

Who, never stay'd by foes a trice,
Whene'er they block his way,
Can with the strongest play
As doth the cat with mice!

Insensibly, while casting thus about,
Quite anxious for my subject's sake,
A theme I meet, and, if I don't mistake,
Shall spoil it, too, by spinning out.

The prince will treat my muse, for that,
As mice are treated by the cat.
A young and inexperienced mouse
Had faith to try a veteran cat,
Raminagrobis, death to rat,
And scourge of vermin through the house,
Appealing to his clemency
With reasons sound and fair.

'Pray let me live; a mouse like me
It were not much to spare.
Am I, in such a family,
A burden? Would my largest wish
Our wealthy host impoverish?

A grain of wheat will make my meal;
A nut will fat me like a seal.
I'm lean at present; please to wait,
And for your heirs reserve my fate.'

The captive mouse thus spake.
Replied the captor, 'You mistake;
To me shall such a thing be said?
Address the deaf! address the dead!
A cat to pardon!--old one too!
Why, such a thing I never knew.

Thou victim of my paw,
By well-establish'd law,
Die as a mousling should,
And beg the sisterhood
Who ply the thread and shears,
To lend thy speech their ears.

Some other like repast
My heirs may find, or fast.'
He ceased. The moral's plain.
Youth always hopes its ends to gain,
Believes all spirits like its own:
Old age is not to mercy prone.

-Abstemius, from Æsop's Fables

On a yahoo list I am on, someone mentioned that they had placed on ebay their copy of the Crystal Tablet of Set. One of the many people to comment on this replied that the 'one rule of cecrecy is that someone will always reveal it, no matter what the oath. [snip] People are at an age where secrecy is not needed and many are waking up on their own."

I then replied, "Secrecy is part of our very being, its in our DNA. Most animals conceal their den or nest from predators, and humans actively conceal aspects of themselves from others. What family does not havea 'family secret' or some 'bones in the closet'? Something mutually agreed upon that 'we just dont talk about'.

Keeping a secret is nothing short of confidentiality and privacy. Mostly, secrets teach discernment and discrimination, within ourselves and others. Therefore, secrets teach us of personal value and worth.

The word 'secret' is rooted in Indo-European krei- and means, "sieve, discriminate, distinguish". Varients include 'crime, criminal; judgment', which indicates that revealing a secret was unlawful. The Greek varients include, 'separate, decide, judge; to explain', which indicates that a secret allows us to determine who can be trusted and who cannot; or who is able to receive additional information.

Many seek the 'mystery' behind secret societies and the secrets that they may hold, but in truth, there are no secrets that cannot be found through diligent self-inquiry. Which is why many seek out such schools: To learn from those who have been-there / done-that.

The secrets found in secret societies are, again, centered on value, on integrity, on honesty, on loyalty. Someone who 'breaks' or reveals asecret then simply cannot be trusted.

"It is wise to seek a secret; and honest not to reveal one."
-William Penn

"A strong body makes the mind strong.
As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun.
While this gives moderate exercise to the body,

"Some werewolves were transformed by sorcery and are human and consistent with an acquired taste for raw flesh. Some Bavarian peasants caught a werewolf and chained it to a tree. The next morning it was gone. Greatly perplexed they consulted the local priest who told them that their next werewolf captive should be chained by the leg. In the morning they would find a Lutheran."

"It was on a dreary night of November, that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me, that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs."

"Where do I take this pain of mine
I run but it stays right by my side
So tear me open, pour me out
The things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me,
so hold me until it sleeps

Just like a curse, just like a stray
You feed it once and now it stays

So tear me open, but beware
The things inside without a care
And the dirt still stains me
So wash me until I'm clean

It grips you solely, it stains you solely
It hates you solely, it holds you solely

So tell me why you've choosen me
Don't want your grip, don't want your greed

Tear me open, make you gone,
No more can you hurt anyone
And the fear still shakes me,
So hold me until it sleeps

Tear me open, make you gone
No longer will you hurt anyone
And the hate still shakes me,
So hold me up until it sleeps"

-Until It Sleeps, written by James Hetfield of Metallica. The song is about cancer and how it killed both of Hetfield's parents. Being Christian Scientists, neither of them sought medical treatment, believing that faith and God would heal them. Both of Hetfield's parents succumbed to the disease.

With a sweet forgetfulness:

Shall the past disturb thy door."

This topic came upon an Internet list I am on. Someone wrote that the 'rule of secrecy' was that someone would reveal it, and that in our current time period secrets were not necessary.

My responce back was, "Secrecy is part of our very being, its in our DNA. Most animals conceal their den or nest from predators, and humans actively conceal aspects of themselves from others. What family does not have a 'family secret' or some 'bones in the closet'? Something mutually agreed upon that 'we just dont talk about'.

Keeping a secret is nothing short of confidentiality and privacy. Mostly, secrets teach discernment and discrimination, within ourselves and others. Therefore, secrets teach us of personal value and worth.

The word 'secret' is rooted in Indo-European krei- and means, "sieve, discriminate, distinguish". Varients include 'crime, criminal; judgment', which indicates that revealing a secret was unlawful. The Greek varients include, 'separate, decide, judge; to explain', which indicates that a secret allows us to determine who can be trusted and who cannot; or who is able to receive additionaly information.

Many seek the 'mystery' behind secret societies and the secrets that they may hold, but in truth, there are no secrets that cannot be found through diligent self-inquiry. Which is why many seek out such schools: To learn from those who have been-there/done-that. The secrets found in secret societies are, again, centered on value, on integrity, on honesty, on loyalty. Someone who 'breaks' or reveals a secret then simply cannot be trusted.

"It is wise to seek a secret; and honest not to reveal one."- William Penn

Loosing My Religion

"Life is bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me

That's me in the corner ..
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you

I thought I saw you try ..

Consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees ..
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I've said too much .. "

Where is the Wild?

Have we lost the wildness? Do we no longer become as wild things? Has concrete and steel become our cage?

Why does the delirium of metamorphosis so rarely come over us? Why did it happen more in the past than today - or is this but an illusion?

Was our past cursed, so that man became wolf? Does the wolf walk among us now? Has their hair changed, but not their heart, so this is why we cannot see them?

What will it take for us to become savage once more? More than dropping bombs and killing babies but ripping at the throat of our enemy with bared teeth.

Being a Mystic

To an onlooker, mystics tend to the intransigence, but in truth are simply profoundly intuitive and innocent before nature, in that they have such a literal acceptance of nature's manifestations and of their own being and creations within that framework.

Few in our extroverted and materialistic society understand mystics, mostly because it seems overwhelmingly regarded as a profoundly religious expression - so hardly practical. However, true mysticism is reinforced by a strongly secretive character trait coupled with an outgoing behavior that is ever in motion. Meaning, mystics are ever growing, becoming and creating.

Many think viruses are bad or evil, spreading as they do from one person to the next, from one country to the next, to invade and infect scores of humans and animals. But, thoughts too are contagious.

We have a natural immunity against all thoughts that do not fit in with our own purposes and beliefs, equally as we are inoculated with a wholesome trust and belief in our own thoughts about those of others.

Ideas such as 'psychic invasion' or 'psychic vampires' or 'psychic killing' are mental fears recognized as concepts.

We cannot divide mental health from physical health, nor can we divide a person's philosophy from their bodily condition.

Symbology is a language. Anyone who truly seeks to know their self should speak this language. Mostly, humans see symbols as physical objects, and it is for this reason that they are not seen at all. Rightly, symbols are the means of inner reality. Consciousness works itself through every symbol possible; the more symbols it has encountered, the better.

"A friend?"

"Yes, another sort of animal. A tall sort of animal."

"You mean, like a giraffe?"

"Yes, yes - a giraffe. That was it."

"The devils are not hostile to man except in so far as man is a friend of God. It is they who have been responsible for every kind of technical progress: from them mankind learned the arts of iron working, brewing and distilling; the Devil himself discovered fire, built the first mill, and constructed the first wagon. The art of reading and writing was one of his gifts to mankind. All these were bestowed to make man independent of God and so break the link whereby man was able to help God in governing the world."

"In human nature, evil denotes only the polarity of matter and Spirit, a struggle of life between the two manifested Principles in Space and Time, which principles are one per se, inasmuch as they are rooted in the Absolute. In Kosmos, the equilibrium must be preserved. The operations of the two contraries produce harmony, like the centripetal and centrifugal forces which are necessary to each other - mutually inter-dependent - "in order that both should live". If one is arrested, the action of the other will become immediately self-destructive."

Whatever is, is right."

The entity that we are is not a precious gift presented to some god like a girl's virginity. Nor is loosing identity a fine gift to any receiver, for there is none to receive it. The idea of 'loosing' or 'saving' a soul is grossly misunderstood.

We are incipient gods. Our soul, our entity is the overall identity of personal manifestation, therefore it is free to express itself as far as its imagination, and beyond. Every moment - whether awareness exists or not - it swirls and surges, changing, morphing, becoming or not becoming to suit our expression. This is the nature of soul-entity: It is highly individualized creatively chaotic energy.

God is an idea. Just as the body you now have is the materialization of an idea - the idea of self within physical reality. The idea of god is that of creation. Not 'the' creator of the physical universe but the idea of creation within each of us. The idea of 'jesus' or 'buddha' or 'odin' or nothing at all is a creation of self - which is why they exist, in that they have been created, and are being perpetuated, by self.

God only exists through our own existence, just as gender and personality are also assigned. Your personal god then is what you want, what you expect, what you have come to realize, and so will forever change as your ideas of god and self change.

Dominance and submission are used in both religious and sexual terms. In truth, dominance and submission are areas of consciousness. This is how religion has tapped into love and devotion - through dominance and submission - for state-political gain, because these things create a sense of blanket emotion. Careful that these things - dominance/submission, love/devotion - do not distort and exaggerate your earthy tendencies and so cloud free expression over conformity.

As humans we are part of the trans-species consciousness, with animals and plants. Even so, many humans do not focus their consciousness in this area or otherwise identify with it.

There are those who will discount religion as insignificant because it was 'created by men'. To these folk I say, 'Religion is DOing'.

Religion is not something created or thought or even felt, but something LIVED. Those who understand this become imbued with brilliance. Those who touch this are transformed.

All the strength given to gods resides within man, even the ability to live forever.

Soon, all religions will reach their peak - a condition of crisis - for folk will realize that spirituality is found only through the inner senses, that consciousness is open-ended, and identity is not dependent upon the bodymind alone.

Organizations within organizations. Pathways that converge to seperate. Courses that flow together yet some lead to Set and some do not. Only he knows which is true. Search if you must, there is no finding, no key, no one doorway. Look if you will but look all your life - one upon the other - and never find, never be fulfilled. Not a web or a net but a turning wheel with a crank. Do not be fooled by the wheel, captured by its turning. Take hold of the crank!

And with wonder his form did I closely scan;

A diplomatist too, well skill'd in debate,
He talks quite glibly of church and state."

"This disclosure was given by Adam to his son Seth in his seven hundredth year.
And he said: "Listen to my words, my son Seth. When the Mad One created me out of the earth, along with Eve your mother, I went along with her in a glory which she had seen in the Aeon from which she came forth. She taught me the word of Gnosis of the Eternal God. And we resembled the great eternal angels, for we were higher than the Mad God who created us."

After thus informing us once again of the spiritually superior status of Eve, the scripture goes on to recount how the Mad Creator turned against Adam and Eve, robbing them of their glory and their knowledge. Humans now served the Mad Creator "in fear and in slavery", so Adam stated. While previously immortal, Adam now knew that his days were numbered. Therefore, he said he now wanted to pass on what he knew to Seth and his descendants.

In the prediction it becomes apparent that "Seth and his seed" would continue to experience gnosis, but that they would be subject to many grave tribulations. The first of these would be the flood, during which angels would rescue the Gnostic race of Seth and hide them in a secret place. Noah, on the other hand, would advise his sons to serve the Mad Creator "in fear and slavery all the days of your life."

After the return of the illumined people of Seth's kind, the creator would once again wrathfully turn against them and try to destroy them by raining fire, sulfur, and asphalt down on them - an allusion, perhaps, to the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Once again many of the Gnostics would be saved by being taken by great angels to a place above the domain of the evil powers.

Much later there would be a new era with the coming of the man of light - Phoster - who would teach gnosis to all.

"This is the hidden knowledge of Adam which he gave to Seth, which is the holy baptism of those who know the imperishable Gnosis through those who are born of the Logos, through the imperishable Illuminator, who himself came from the holy seed of Seth."

"We venerate the serpent because God has made it the cause of Gnosis for mankind.
Ialdabaoth - the Mad Demiurge who was the 'god of the Jews' - did not want men to have any recollection of the Mother or of the Father on high.
It was the serpent, who by tempting them, brought them Gnosis;
who taught the man and the woman the complete knowledge of the mysteries from on high. That is why Ialdabaoth, mad with fury, cast it down from the heavens."

There is nothing I will not Witness, no image or vision I will not see and touch with you.
There is nothing that will make me look away.

But I will stand with you and offer you my courage, while you face them yourself.

They are no longer wounds that define me -
they are scars that shape me, giving form and strength that I would not have otherwise.

There are no Fears I will not face with you.
