Some thoughts after a day of research.
To me the LBRP associations seem to exemplify the alignment of self with divinity, creating over time a mental imprint. This when combined with further work facilitates transcendence/attunement with the HGA/crossing the Abyss, using the syncretic cosmology of the GD as a backdrop. In other words a path to enlightenment with fun and games along the way. Once these structures are imprinted successfully, using them creates a controllable clear head space. The classical models and tools (such as the LBRP) that I am familiar with from my view provide a rocket ride to Kether without a parachute or landing gear.
Gain the HGA/Cross the Abyss/Merge with the Godself. Then what?
As for banishing, EA’s mention of banishing as removing yourself from the extant presence of forces seems to ring true in the face of direct experience.
A quote from Jeremy Crow also aligns with this when he said, “It is my understanding and experience that banishing rituals work to reinforce the suppression of the Shadow within oneself. Whether you are traveling a Right Hand Path or a Left Hand Path, ultimately you must consciously come to terms with your Shadow.”
In my experience the self identity when viewed in the cusp between the phenomenal and nuomenal states of being (passing through the Abyss) becomes recognized as needful yet arbitrary formations of cyclical self-reinforcing thought/feeling cascades. These as memory form our reference points to navigate phenomenal reality.
The cosmological frame work of most paths seems hell bent on uplifting ourselves to Godhood, but those who navigated that terrain have left no records that I have seen as to what comes next.
Chop wood, carry water is about all I have heard.
Perhaps the inner order higher grade rites of some order provide navigation beyond the leap from the phenomenal into the vastness, a nod to Tolkien’s There and Back Again, with map and guidebook.
I’m working on formalizing a ‘LBRP’ where the symbolic forms of the rite embody usable and tested methods that enable a controlled jump into the Abyss where the self takes form. Then including tools for navigating reality that respect and include the reality of the re-formability of the consistently evolving self.
I feel this will be useful for me in reinforcing the embodiment of the Godself, by formalizing the process of self re-construction in a workable system. Structure enough to maintain sanity, and Changeability to provide room for growth… probably in an impossible attempt to systematize the ineffable within the mind.
