Man Know Thyself
Did anyone use Frater Marabas's "Man Know Thyself" tape? I'd like your opinion on it if you used it. It was a lesson in magick using the model of tension and concentration. What interests me is, at the end he taught a technique for complete disconnection from the physical vehicle and there was a pathworking exercise which he described as inducing a process similar to "a psychedelic trip." I'm beginning to think that that was some powerful s++t exercise and that he wasn't using mere metaphor. The pathworking involved the use of a "ring pass not" scenario in which you had to give a correct and appropriate "pass word" to a "guardian" in order to reach the interior of your being i.e. the visualization sphere re Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem.
Here's a reference of an exercise how to bring forth your KA: "In a sense, that is what mystics do – mess with brains. Arzy and Idel write of Abraham Abulafia, a 13th-century mystic who devised a mind-boggling technique to achieve ecstasy through intense concentration. He would chant Hebrew letters while paying close attention to the patterns of his respiration and his head position. At the same time, he would imagine himself with and without a body, while picturing and rotating the letters in his mind’s eye. The result would often be the appearance of a doppelgänger ( https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22730331-300-kabbalah-mystical-lessons-for-modern-neuroscience/ )."
That sounds a bit too frenzied and is nothing like what the "Man Know Thyself" tape does. Thanks anyway.
I've seen people do that at parties, though. No denying the glamour.
:=) The first thing I thought of when I read about Abulafia's methods was Duquette's methods shown in his video: Enochian vision magick. Could Abulafia's methods be transferred over to Enochian vision magick to enhance the effect?
Would that be the same one as where they manage to do a fire eating act at the same time whilst executing a pirouette and eating a banana?

Ah... you are referring to the Sigillum Dei Aemeth, Jamie. In a way it's kind of already - implicitly - integrated into the system.
Ah, was I there now K?! I’m not certain that I was, unless maybe you happen to be some sort of a “precog” & know something here that I do not!?
