Sex magic

Sex magic
Paschal Beverly Randolph[edit] The earliest known practical teachings of sex magic in the Western world come from 19th-century American occultist Paschal Beverly Randolph, under the heading of The Mysteries of Eulis: If a man has an intelligent and loving wife, with whom he is in complete accord, he can work out the problems [of how to achieve magical results] by her aid. They are a radical soul-sexive series of energies...The rite is a prayer in all cases, and the most powerful [that] earthly beings can is best for both man and wife to act together for the attainment of the mysterious objects sought. Success in any case requires the adjuvancy of a superior woman. The entire mystery can be given in very few words, and they are: An upper room; absolute personal, mental, and moral cleanliness both of the man and wife. Randolph himself was greatly influenced by the work of English Rosicrucian and scholar of phallicism, Hargrave Jennings. Ida Craddock[edit] Aleister Crowley[edit]

The Platonic Solids and Sacred Geometry Sacred geometry is a term which describes ... The geometrical laws which create everything in existence. This term has been used by mathematicians, geometricians, spiritual seekers, anthropologists, and archaeologists to encompass the religious, philosophical, and spiritual beliefs that have sprung up around geometry in all the major cultures during the course of human history. Every thought or emotion we produce has a specific geometrical pattern. The more we evolve spiritually the more we see the connection between human evolution and sacred geometry. We are aware that while the planet is under going a shift to a higher frequency that, all who reside within her energy field will also experience this realignment. Many are experiencing naturally as the planet undergoes her transformation which is what is termed the 'Creation of the Lightbody'. The process of transition into Light is a gradual one. We are all evolving and absorbing Light at our own pace. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 12.

Theory of everything (philosophy) In philosophy, a theory of everything or ToE is an ultimate, all-encompassing explanation or description of nature or reality.[1][2][3] Adopting the term from physics, where the search for a theory of everything is ongoing, philosophers have discussed the viability of the concept and analyzed its properties and implications.[1][2][3] Among the questions to be addressed by a philosophical theory of everything are: "Why is reality understandable?" "Why are the laws of nature as they are?" "Why is there anything at all?"[1] The "system building" style of metaphysics attempts to answer all the important questions in a coherent way, providing a complete picture of the world. Other philosophers do not believe philosophy should aim so high. In “The Price of an Ultimate Theory”,[2] originally published in 2000, Nicholas Rescher specifies what he sees as the principal properties of a Theory of Everything and describes an apparent impasse on the road to such a theory.

Astrotheology, the Holy Science Those very same people left us Spiritual Wisdom too. Love of Wisdom has always been the highest virtue of Man. Philosophy comes from two Greek words, Love & Wisdom. This is the knowledge that they prefer we do not have. Syncretism shows how all the Ancient Legendary Stories, Myths, Bibles, Fairy Tales etc, all have one simple common origin. The underlying message of all the legendary books of Mythology (Including the Bible) is one and the same. This Science of ‘as above so below’ is the most ancient universal system of harmonizing man with his natural surrounds! The ancient wisdom traditions always depict “man” (male and female) as a composite being and frequently as the microcosmic reflection of the conscious living universe: as above, so below. Socrates’ guiding rule was: “Know Thyself.” These words are among the most powerful ever uttered from any lips, and of eternal significance. ‘The kingdom of God is within you’ ~ Jesus “To thine own self be true” ~ Shakespeare ©2014 Santos

Metaphysics Metaphysics is a traditional branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it,[1] although the term is not easily defined.[2] Traditionally, metaphysics attempts to answer two basic questions in the broadest possible terms:[3] Ultimately, what is there?What is it like? Prior to the modern history of science, scientific questions were addressed as a part of metaphysics known as natural philosophy. Originally, the term "science" (Latin scientia) simply meant "knowledge". The scientific method, however, transformed natural philosophy into an empirical activity deriving from experiment unlike the rest of philosophy. Etymology[edit] However, once the name was given, the commentators sought to find intrinsic reasons for its appropriateness. Central questions[edit] Cosmology and cosmogony[edit] Metaphysical Cosmology is the branch of metaphysics that deals with the world as the totality of all phenomena in space and time. [edit] [edit]

The Human Body in Symbolism - The Secret Teachings of All Ages Index Previous Next p. 73 THE oldest, the most profound, the most universal of all symbols is the human body. The Greeks, Persians, Egyptians, and Hindus considered a philosophical analysis of man's triune nature to be an indispensable part of ethical and religious training. The Mysteries of every nation taught that the laws, elements, and powers of the universe were epitomized in the human constitution; that everything which existed outside of man had its analogue within man. The universe, being immeasurable in its immensity and inconceivable in its profundity, was beyond mortal estimation. THE THREEFOLD LIFE OF THE INNER MAN. Magical organization Significant orders and organizations[edit] The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn has been credited with a vast revival of occult literature and practices and was founded in 1887 or 1888 by William Wynn Westcott, Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers and William Robert Woodman. The teachings of the Order include Enochian magic, Christian mysticism, Qabalah, Hermeticism, the paganism of ancient Egypt, theurgy, and alchemy.[1] Ordo Aurum Solis, founded in 1897, is a Western Mystery Tradition group teaching Hermetic Qabalah. Its rituals and system are different from the more popular Golden Dawn, this is because the group follows the ogdoadic tradition instead of rosicrucianism. The A∴A∴ was created in 1907 by Aleister Crowley and also teaches magick and Thelema. Other magical organizations[edit] Some (in many cases, equally notable) organizations. Organizations founded prior to the 19th century[edit] Organizations founded in the 19th century[edit] References[edit]

The Art of the Bath Ritual. Via Ruth Randallon Sep 23, 2014 There I was, breathing, meditating, trying to find the space between thoughts that brings the beginning of wisdom. Or so I had read. Suddenly I hear, “Do you know what that sound is, highness? The perfect bath isn’t about getting clean, exactly. Warm water is a primal, comforting element. Rituals ground us, bind us to our lives and help us find meaning. Like a secret handshake with ourselves, personal rituals show us what is important in our lives. The Recipe A measure of Epsom or Mineral salts ~1/2 cup Essential oils 3 candles (at least) Warm-Hot water (obviously) 5 rose quartz crystals or perhaps Fluorite Before you run the bath place several drops of essential oils onto the salt and allow it to sit for a few minutes so that the oil binds to the salt. The Ritual Your ritual can be dynamic and responsive to your needs. Lie back and let the scent take you where it will. I usually find myself floating in a beautiful meadow. I stay there until I feel relaxed. The Oils

Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn The three founders, William Robert Woodman, William Wynn Westcott, and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers were Freemasons and members of Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (S.R.I.A.).[5] Westcott appears to have been the initial driving force behind the establishment of the Golden Dawn. The Golden Dawn system was based on hierarchy and initiation like the Masonic Lodges; however women were admitted on an equal basis with men. The "Golden Dawn" was the first of three Orders, although all three are often collectively referred to as the "Golden Dawn". Influences[edit] Influences on Golden Dawn concepts and work include: Christian mysticism, Qabalah, Hermeticism, Ancient Egyptian religion, Theurgy, Freemasonry, Alchemy, Theosophy, Astrology, Eliphas Levi, Papus, John Dee & Edward Kelly, Enochian magic, and Renaissance grimoires, as well as Anna Kingsford & Frederick Hockley. History[edit] Cipher Manuscripts[edit] According to the records of the Order, the manuscripts passed from Kenneth R. J.W.

pagan myths and legends « Paying Attention To The Sky The Fourth Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon 451AD The following is adapted from Fr. Robert Barron’s And Now I See which one reviewer has called “the most readable, sensible and well-supported view of Christianity” he had ever read. It constantly surprises me that as I return to this book to help me advocate the Church’s positions, I always find something clear-cut and easily understandable. Most recently I was in an Internet food fight on the historicity of Jesus. Anyways, here is the amalgam of arguments I used in a longer more thoughtful piece. The Chalcedonian Doctrine came at the end of a long period of debate and discussion in the early church concerning the nature and salvific significance of Jesus Christ. Robert Sokolowski has commented on this Christian distinction between older pagan myths and legends and the Christian religion: Further, as Sokolowski explains this “Christian distinction” carries with it a certain strangeness:
