Pascal Beverly Randolph... Eulis “Affectional Alchemy” book covers ... 1930

The book, in German "Die sexualmagischen Lehren der Bruderschaft von Eulis", was originally
published by Randolph (1825-1875) in 1874 with the founding of The Brotherhood of Eulis ("Hermetische Bruderschaft vonLuxor"), presumably to work sex-magic. Randolph also founded the Fraternitas Rosae Crucis, the oldest Rosicrucian
organization in the United States

excerpt...



So far well; but at last the world wants to know more of that wonderful fraternity, which, nameless at times for long centuries, blossomed a few centuries ago as Rosicrucia, but now has leaped to the fore-front of all the real reform movements of this wondefu1 age, and lo! the banner of peerless Eulis floats proudly—rock founded — on the breeze. We, the people of Eulis, be it known, are students of nature in her interior departments, and rejecting alike the coarse materialism of the ages, and the sham “philosophies” of the ages past and current, accept only that which forces conviction by its irresistible logic. Men who realize the existence of other worlds than this are not apt to give loose rein to passion; nor be content with fraud in any shape. We cannot take say-sos for facts, and therefore we reject much that appeals to others with the force of truth. We are ambitious to solve all possible mystery; we prefer one method to all other hyper-human agencies, knowing it to be infinitely preferable to all other modes of rapporting the occult and mysterious; and this book, and all others from the same pen, is but a very imperfect sketch or outline of the sublime philosophy of the Templars of EULIS. We know the enormous importance of the sexive principle; that a menstruating woman is an immense power if she but knew it! that a pregnant one holds the keys of eternal mystery in her hand, and that while thus she can make or mar any human fortune! We know the mystic act is one unhinging the gates alike, of heaven and of hell; and we know two semi-brainless people may, by an application of esoteric principles, stock the 
world with mental giants. But where shall we find students? Are not all the people, nearly, the slaves of lust, place, gold? Well, we find one now and then; and we hail him or her as the Greeks hailed the sea— with excessive joy! Thalatta! Thalatta! They are not multitudinous now, but will be in the good time coming.

Janus



An Invokation of the Hidden Light

I call forth to the Eldritch Spirits of the Dark Abyss,
Thee who don the Masks of Earths Gods,
I am Enchanted as a Light in the Dark,
Illuminated Rays ever searching for You.


Fiery Serpent of Wisdom I call forth to You,
Mighty Angel of the Absolute,
O' Sacred King of the Witch-Blood True,
To the Land of Man Thou hast Come as the Leader of the Way,
Let Thine Blessed Radiance impregnate this Red Clay.


I look forward into the Past,
I awaken the Soul of my Ancestor Qayin,
I bring to light the Hidden Wisdom of Midnight's Gods,
O' Gates of mine own Self be open!


O' Light of the Soul,
O' Brilliance of the Spirit,
Forever Shimmering is the Light of the Peacock Angel,
Descending from the Heavens to Earth to Embrace
the Flesh of the Existent.


Wisdom and Truth of the Light I seek,
Ever to be found in the Gnosis of I,
Self-Knowledge of Mine Ever-Changing Ways,
Forever swirling about the Point,
As an Un-Earthed Treasure ever abiding in the Dark.


Sacred Fire of the Most High shine from Within,
Illuminate the Mind of the Wise with the Vision of the Eternal,
O' Secret Light cast by Witches Fire,
O' Secret Light cast by Sorcerer's Pyre,
Burn bright, grow high, forever alight in the Mind's Eye.

The Complete Ritual and Doctrine of Magic

Ecstasy in Self-love the Obsession



My dearest, I will now explain the only safe and true formula, the destroyer of the darkness of the World, the most secret among all secrets. Let it be secret to him who would attain. Let it cover any period of time, depending on his conception. There is no qualification, nor ritual or ceremony. His very existence symbolising all that is necessary to perfection. Most emphatically, there is no need of repetition or feeble imitation. You are alive!

Angela Edwards... painting..



Photobucket
images taken from a large 10m canvas piece


The journeys of abstracted forms evoked after ritual in the dreamlandscapes offer also a form of spirit to man or woman TRUE initiation through image channeling of the Qliphoth relearns in being a gift from the initiator the spirits to humbled man or woman allowing us the knowledge to enlightened full being .
In this we are shown a place of nightmares that we are initiated not to fear,in that fearlessness is a main key to all true practice, we are taught to embrace darkness aswell as light and all have validity in our journey through spiritual communication, full enlightenment transgression to our full higher self embracing all our POTENTIAL.
So in this one of the main aspects of initiation becomes none human and becomes the relation of the mappings of Qlipoth spiritual universe through the subconscious uncontrolled aspects of images evocated through dreams. Angela Edwards

Austin Osman Spare ... The Formula of Atavistic Resurgence...



~ Austin Osman Spare ~
30 December 1886 – 15 May 1956



Photobucket

The Formula of Atavistic Resurgence
Zos-Kia Cultus
 Austin Osman Spare created this Stele embodying the secret glyphs and sigils of the Cultus.


"There is a Grimoire of symbology, of vague phonic nuances that conjoins all thoughts and is the cryptic language of the subconscious world." AOS

"I teach the equal reality of all things, man and his illusions: Dreams shall flesh ...some day." AOS


Whatever the value of Spare’s contribution to art and psychology, his contribution to experimental occultism is supreme, for he discovered a method of reifying the dream world under the controlling aegis of the fully conscious will.

Andrew D. Chumbley... The Azoetia... excerpt...





Photobucket
The Assumption of the Azoetic Magical Self - Andrew d. Chumbley




By Arte enchant and fascinate the Portals to open, revealing those whom

the Stars veil. Sing out their Passion in the War and Feast that is Thy Self!
Taste ye of the sweet and secret wines of Heaven - the Ocean of Ichor
spilt from the broken idols of Gods and Demi-gods. Carouse ye with my
Satyrs and embrace the Succubi raised from Thine own Desires; swoon
ye in rapture, in the nimbus of fever billowing over the lily field of the
Night. Yet be not overcome! Fall not! Tire not of Pleasure, but seek ye
the Ever-virgin Joys that hide beneath Medusine Veils.

Amidst these blossoms cavort and dance!
1 cap! Your skin aflame in peacock-iridescence!
Your eyes like black fire at the heart of the storm!

For these are the Splendours of the Infinite, wrought in the Images and
Effiges of I




"Speaking for myself, books like Azoetia are mystical love-letters to stangers whom I would not otherwise meet. "ADC

Paul Gregor ...'Journal d'un Sorcier' ( A Wizard Diary)



Paul Gregor (aka Paul Sebescen, 1914-1988) became famous in the french occult world when he published, in 1964, his famous 'Journal d'un Sorcier' (A Wizard Diary). He was relating in this book his astonishing adventures in Brazil, just after World War II, when he plunged into the world of the 'Quimbanda', the darker side of Macumba.

an excerpt from unfinished novel 'Circe's Island'...


"We are both living inside our two bodies and also far beyond them. We are part of the exuberant nature which surrounds us, of its soothing quiet and also of its sadistic Black Masses. We are ceaselessly changing. Into night-flowers, birds, trails of blood, rags of skin lacerated by razor-blades - now we are hoarse yells, now the murmur of brooks under the moon. Only in our imagination? Where does imagination begin? Where does it end? Is it morbid? Why should we care?"

"The only thing I know for certain: this is eternity. Our sighs are sighed by our innermost life. Our breathing follows the rhythm of permanent orgasm, we are cast in the iron mould of unending lust: ceaselessly ebbing and flowing."

"We are that fabulous being of Plato, with two heads, four arms and four legs."


Hail to thee, oh Whirling Dove!
Hail, oh Woman-Exù!
She is waiting at her crossroads
Doing whatever she wills to do.



* Many thanks to Philippe Pissier for all the above
