Ancestral Veneration 

I have decided that there must be reconciliation for the current concept of the individual regarding the death of the many parts of himself in this life. I believe in reincarnation in regards to parts of the soul which need it, and that this happens on a microcosmic scale while we are living. After all, the Invokation of the “Bornless” (Head-less) One before the evokation of the Goetia is a bringing forth of the archetype of the “be-headed” King and Queen in the Chymical Wedding, of the myth of Osiris, etc. This is an archetype of the Higher Self, the HGA which commands the “dead” parts of us (shells of the personal unconscious, spirits of the Goetia) to rise and be guided under Will. There appears a literal connection to these ideas and that of the old depictions of Atu XX; the dead rising from their tombs and are given eternal life.

I’ve looked forward so much that I seem to have forgotten how I got here. There is an undeniable aspect of energy in ancestral workings (harnessed primarily for thaumaturgical purposes) but albeit powerful and has been dominant throughout the centuries.

To the theurgist, although all parts of the self end up in Sheol, they are either resurrected for the purposes of the Great Work, or abide as Qliphotic aspects of self which must continue to be rectified–both for our sake, and “theirs.” It is interesting that by understanding the microcosm in this manner, we understand that these aspects of our self contain in themselves a type of base consciousness; a persistence to exist and stubborness to attempt to avoid change or the death of itself.

This is essentially what our individual manifestations are to the macrocosm.

The aspects of self which are “righteous” i.e. in alignment with the True Will of the Individual, having been resurrected, can be interpreted to be living in Heaven/the Supernals/in Harmony with the All.

When we venerate our ancestors, we are acknowledging the continuation of the cycle and drawing forth all the energy of the transformations they’ve made throughout time, feeling the energy of the All propelling us forth into the Light. Therefore any progress made in the present is never ours, nor our ancestors, but the permutation of the One. 

I.N.R.I. Easter Edition

69 – KEFALH XQ
THE WAY TO SUCCEED—AND THE WAY TO
SUCK EGGS!

This is the Holy Hexagram.
Plunge from the height, O God, and interlock with Man!
Plunge from the height, O Man, and interlock with Beast!
The Red Triangle is the desceding tongue of grade;
the Blue Triangle is the ascending tongue of prayer.
This Interchange, the Double Gift of Tongues, the
Word of Double Power—ABRAHADABRA!—is
the sign of the GREAT WORK, for the GREAT WORK is accomplished in Silence. And behold is
not that Word equal to Cheth, that is Cancer,
whose Sigil is [Cancer]?
This Work also eats up itself, accomplishes its own
end, nourishes the worker, leaves no seed, is perfect in itself.

Little children, love one another!


In the spirit of Easter, Christian mysticism, the alchemical/Qabalistic formula of I.N.R.I, and the late-night rereading of Wake World, I’ve decided to write this brief essay:

I. N. R. I. = Yod – Nun – Resh – Yod
= Igne Natura Renovatur Integra.
“Through fire, nature is reborn whole.”

I, Yod, Igne; 10. Hand (which brings forth the seed), Fire (which manifests as Will), Virgo/Isis/Mighty Mother, “Yod = Phallus = Spermatozoon = Hand = Logos = Virgin.” IX. The Hermit. Partzuf of ChKMH-73.

N, Nun, Natura; 50. Fish (seed which swims in the Womb, the Serpent, the Vesica), Scorpio/Apophis/Destroyer, XIII. Death, the alchemical stage of putrefaction, earth/nature/the natural process.

R, Resh, Renovatur; 200. Sun (Son, Light-Bringer/Lucifer), Sol/Osiris/Slain & Risen, Renewal, XIX. The Sun. Partzuf of TPART-1,081.

I, (Same as above), Integra; the integration, completion, wholeness of.

The “three days” it takes YHShVH to “rise from the dead” I think, is symbolic of the three paths Nun, Samekh, and Ayin, which pass the Veil of PRKTh. The vision of TPART from MLKVT through the Veil is of the misunderstood Pan Pangenetor, (causing people mixing up Lucifer for “Satan).”

It was midnight and the Devil came down and sat in the midst; but my Fairy Prince whispered: ‘Hush! it is a great secret, but his name is YHShVH, and he is the Saviour of the World. (Via ayin v. Oculus).

Using Lola Daydream as my Jesus today – she begins as Yod; the Virgin of the Universe/the path of the Hermit, having come forth through the Eye/Ayin, the path of the Devil. Nun is the attributed path of Death. Resh, instead of the path of Resh, is the sephira TPART, the tomb of C. Rosenkreuz, and the last Yod symbolizing this entire alchemical process (Integra), the path of Samekh, and also the momentum of her progress upwards toward divinity, or in this case the momentum to complete the circle/rose drawn with the cross in the Rosy Cross Ritual, meeting the Devil once more but without the Veil; K&C of the HGA.

In this process is also the LAShTAL formula; before beginning the circle a little after the path of The Hermit, this is only made possible from the powers of LA/potential, symbolized here by Atu VIII. Adjustment. Shin-Teth is the entire motion, its attributions relating to Resh and Nun. AL is both the Devil and the HGA – Fire & Completion.
The formula T.A.R.O., if drawn according to the paths of the Tree of Life in front of you, makes a huge spiral in the opposite direction, encompassing the circle from the paths around TPART which not only appear to balance each other out, but T.A.R.O. being LVX in extension, (extension which shines through the Eye/Ayin in combination with Adjustment) sets up Lola’s “three-day” resurrection.

So never mind! let me go on. We came by and by to the Sixth House. I forgot to say that all those three paths were really one, because they all meant that things were different inside to outside, and so people couldn’t judge. (Domus VI v. Pulchritudo).
