Hello everyone, I have 2 questions that i hope can get answers…
- When it comes to initiation, or rather the great work itself why do people especially Western magicians rely on syncretic magical models of initiation like the Kabballah or others? (Please note that i am not exceptionally knowledgeable in this model.)
Why don’t people just invoke their Personal Daemon every day until that whole process of alchemical transmutation takes place over and over i.e blackening, whitening and reddening. Which eventually leads to integrating your selves into your being fully thereby making you ‘god on earth’
Are these models that have been created or contributed by previous magicians like Crowley or grant there to sort of help us navigate the chaos? A sort of road map to help us know what exactly is taking place during the alchemical process? Step-by-step? Because i do understand that these magicians really suffered a lot to bring this work in this aeon. The universe is chaotic and i know without these systems, people would be lost in their personal underworld. But these systems are incomplete, are sort of a work in progress.
There are so many traditions, so many Qaballas and so many syncretic traditions. So why not directly invoke the HGA, forget about the systems or just use them as reference material? Why bother working with spheres or spirits from someone elses’ path when you can just invoke your HGA and work with it only every day since it it technically more powerful than any spirit or system, a ray of the black sun…limitless potential.
- My second question is this, as i have been studying the tree of death, i have noticed in several places that one meets their HGA in the solar spheres, specifically the black sun since that is where our HGA resides. So does that mean that you cannot start working with the HGA before that or does it mean that these models of initiation prepare you to start working with it?
So that is my question, i am not saying magical models are bad, i am just wondering why almost every magician is either selling or giving out there own road map to navigate the trees (i am excluding those giving out useful unbiased info), when this is something people can do alone through the guidance of their HGA or even spirits if so inclined. This is not chaos magick, not even close. I actually feel that it is safer, since you are being guided by your HGA. Some really dilute the tree system so much that it seems like a video game. Others who jump from one path to another, even worse start to mix other traditions with this which dilutes it even more. I actually believe this pisses the spirits off. After reading some serious books regarding the trees especially the Qlipha/ sitra achra, it is not really sunshine and rainbows and looks downright dangerous which i feel to be more genuine. These books are usually extremely detailed unlike modern books. Like tree of death by John Gee or even Queen of Hell.
