Hello all, I have been reading all 3 books of Mark Allen Smiths’ trident series. I have read all 3 twice just to make sure I got the right gnosis about the path and knew exactly what the path is about.
Does anybody have experience with this book?
I have found it to be a very powerful series dedicated to Soul evolution/ascension. Its been rumored to be one of the best books for soul evolution.
Mark describes his personal gnosis he received from Hecate, from his view; the creator of all that is, the Goddess of everything and was the first “Omnipotent Being” in existence. I found it odd because I thought Lilith was the most powerful Goddess.
The books left me very intrigued to partake in the path of the Flame. But there are a few details that leave me skeptical about the wholesome of his Gnosis received.
He doesnt mention anything about Azazel, now I have worked with him extensively and personally feel he may be the most powerful Demonic God in existence. If anyone on this site has worked with him, they should know exactly what I mean. EA Koetting even mentioned in one of his videos the exact same thing.
He talks of a “Trident of 3 Godlike beings” responsible for all witchcraft and all that is. They supposedly gave early man, The Atlanteans, their power through their worship(love and Devotion) to the Gods. It kind of sounds like a LHP Christian like religion.
Even though it sounds very interesting, the power attained through the workings is only bestowed. But working through different systems I’ve found whatever is bestowed can be taken away. That leaves the average Black magician pissed off if their hard work was taken away due to a fuck up.
He mentions no other system is as powerful as the path of the Flame. Dont get me wrong, it sounds like it could back up the statement, but its been said before, for instance: Vodou, Palo Mayombe, Asian Sorcery, Dakini work, Free masonry, etc.
I could go on, but im trying to keep my review short.
My opinion of the path is it is very breathtaking and would be ONE of the most powerful systems in the world for soul evolution. One is warned not to understake the path for power or greed. It must be soley for the love and Devotion of Hecate, the Trident and the purpose for soul alchemy.
However, I feel their are other methods of achieving something beyond that path.
Im interested for everyones perspective.
