Do what thou wilt

On January 12, anno Vvi, a new magickal order was formed

by myself and six other committed Thelemites.

We chose the name Magicians In Exile.

This was not in reference to the coronavirus,

which was barely a blip on our radar at that point.

Considering the world we presently inhabit,

and how it has isolated us from each other even more than usual,

the name of the order has become somewhat prophetic.

 

I’ve published a simple site which went live today, at

solignere.com

for those who are interested in joining.

We never intended to go public with this order, but things have changed.

There are no dues, meetings, rituals, or initiations; nothing for sale.

It’s just a way to express a connection with other Thelemites.

You take a simple oath and choose which of three Grades

you embody, and then you’re in.

 

The genesis of this order was relayed in a Class A text

transmitted on January 7 of this year.

That document is available on the site,

and explains things better than I can in this limited space.

Thanks for your attention.

Stay safe, and stay connected.

 

Love is the law, love under will.

Thanks, I read it.

 

She gives 

this number 182 

and provides the seven 

with all they desire

 

This number has come up before in my "quirky" numerology. In my base 26 analysis this number becomes "HA" (7 x 26), the final word of Liber AL.

Yes, 182 is an interesting number. All the hexagrams of TQ can be transformed into their 'nuclear' hexes (lines 2-3-4-5) to make a new hex (lines 2-3-4-3-4-5). This in turn can be nucleated. The result is always a multiple of 91. So there are 9 possible nuclear hexes, including 0, and 182 is one of them. They act sort of like 'strange attractors' in that all hexes are ultimately an expression of one of them, or can be reverted back into them. In the I Ching there are 4 such hexagrams (= 2 x 2), in the TQ there are 9 of them (= 3 x 3).

Don't worry, The Book of Mutations is on my reading list 🙂 , though it will take some time. So far I am able to find meaningful coincidences now and again with the methods I use (which are a bit of a mess) though I can't figure out why they happen. You seem to have a coherent system that can explain what's going on behind the scenes.

Indeed. The cathedral alone is worth the visit, I imagine.

The name would equal 406 in Hebrew spelling: Alef-Mem-Yod-Heh-Nun-Sin

406 is the sum of 1-28, and 28 in turn is the sum of 1-7;

very appropriate given the title of the Book.

Do what thou wilt

 

On March 20, 2020, when Caput Draconis

went exactly conjunct my natal Ascendant

I accepted the Grade of Magus 9°=2

 

My Word as a Magus is KATALYSIS

 

A full account of this Word can be found on my blog at

https://omegalogion.wordpress.com

 

On the About page are pdf downloads regarding the Word

as well as a Commentary on Liber B vel Magi,

and an essay on cosmology that teaches the Mystery of Change,

as required by the Grade.

 

For those who talk to the devil, I mean use facebook,

you can also find on my page at

https://www.facebook.com/omega.logion

a short video of me explaining the Grade and how I arrived at it.

 

Love is the law, love under will.

O.L.

Congratulations and Thanks for sharing the fruits of your Work; much dedicated efforts and fortuitous inspirations!

Now not to 'dis' the work, but i wonder,  the word dissolution is your solution such that Katalysis might thus rather be the precipitate, and thus a certain essence that a Magus 9=2 may extract with such tools to which your Book of Mutations, that voluminous redeeming of Trigrammaton, serves as a testament to your own commitment to the Great Work... So by my cursory reading of 'Letter Seventeen on the Word of the Magus' i wonder if perhaps the title should have been Twenty-Three, D by Trigrammaton and as opposed to K, to which there is a Thelemic tradition that bears the number of that letter as being Eleven as opposed to Seventeen....Upon such apparent discrepancies i shall not fret, for in a sense it rather is a catalyst in helping to better behold the mysteries of the mutations....

Now a recent thread on these forums, mention was made of the 'Curse of the Magus' and i suppose a 'word' or rather 'The Word' is a curse of sorts, certainly to those who do not 'get it' and maybe you have discovered a curse of the Grade instead, an appearance or apropos formula that only a full master of the system might well find, a certain cursive demonstration of formulae fecund with and awaiting full dissolution that might complete the abstractions and obstructions to so udder...as onward to Ipissimus and beyond such markings....

For the curse is not necessarily the glad word, but in a 'Aeon' of War, being able to curse it would seem to be the prerequisite, and when I think of catalyst for some reason i think of acid eating away at something, even itself, or ourselves, ouroboros, which is also something can happen when one eats 'acid' as a certain strange drug is so termed, and thus at the end of the day, or by the new beginning cruses can have their explicative function as a Magus has a function....

So Welcome, as there are a few around here in some manner of appearances about Khailashesas the announcement of Seventeen, notes some particularly benefitting record of work so scribed during the scribing days of L, and as these pages and threads were in a busy, upon various glamours, we can now note your productive repast from the howling here, for on the Second day, no less, but the eighth and thus not April Fools, at least I can read Seventeen to be a relevant solute with which to approach the stone or rather tome that is your Mutations, thus as a skeletal key to approach that these Salutes are in order

or shall i say

dis or der

Love is the law, love under will

I am going to play 'bad mon' here and ask some basic questions. 

 

I saw your recent post on this thread, and since my wife has the FB, I checked out a tiny bit of your video.  You seem like a nice guy, and mostly down to earth, which I appreciate.

 

That said, when I checked your website, it said 'To join, simply affirm your commitment to Thelema and decide what Grade you are.

You will then be part of the global circuit of the M.I.X.'

 

1.  What is the Thelemic and even rational magickal reason for allowing one to choose their grade? Isn't this asking for people to be lazy and not do any work?   I see you couched them in OTO and not AA terms, meaning there are only 3 grades, but as we all know, these 3 contain 'multitudes'  

 

2. If someone chooses a grade, how do you test if they have really done the work and are really 'there'? 

 

3. Do you practise a musical instrument? 

 

 

Random, yes.

 

 

93s sir

The prosecution sends in The Devil's Advocate to present the preliminary inquiries.

I know you are asking 3x31, but I happened to follow out that same link. I did not enroll as, you know, I'm sort of a non-joiner due to operating my own star system. But I did pay extra special attention and consideration to to the self-grading system.

Ultimately, this is the only absolute approach to standardized grading. It doesn't matter whether an Order or a Guru gives you the grade (except in physical plane courtrooms), whether you take an Oath (in blood, ink, keyboard, or dictational yelling), whether you do the work (the practices) and gain "significant results" in several areas, or what other people confirm, or think, your grade is ... it is what you think or confirm that matters.

If you (I am referring of anyone, including myself) think wrong - and believe me, this is possible, maybe probable - and you are actively linked into the "archetype of initiation," then the necessary adjustments will be carried out. Egomaniacs don't tend to claim to be humble messengers, 4=7s, priests ... not even Adepts or Initiates. No, they claim 8=3, 9=2, some even 10=1. Others are The World Teacher or the reincarnation of some dead adept.

If they are playing the game in any real manner, the system will take them seriously, and they will be handed certain responsilibilities, and worse, certain paradoxical mental states. Anybody who keeps trucking must have something on the ball, because we have all read the accounts of many recent Magisters and Magi, and we know them to be insane, or playing the con game,, or level-headed, or maybe legitimate.

Anyway, this does not appear to be a training order, so he's not letting in people who are picking their positions in a pecking-order. It has more the appearance of a network. Star System, in its present incarnation, is also a network. It's really simple, if you're in the Star System Address Book at the Borg, you're in the network. Whenever I have info or questions, a message will go out to some or all contacts, then it usually comes out on LAShTAL. But there is no designation of grade. Every contact is a Star. Star System Address Book contacts are not shared. It is not a "group." But, independently, almost every contact has developed linkage with other contacts, independent of any fiddling or introducing by me.

I am only running out these boring details to say that I can see what he is doing. The formulation of seven who sit in unity, followed by the arising of a Magus is perfectly in line with the archetypal process now governing the core of initiatory systems, as it has been revealed to me, and passed on in my books, so he gets to do anything he wants (hopefully Wills), and we, being remote Stars, will watch the cause-and-effect, and we will all profit from our observations.

there are only 3 grades

Although in daily life I live in a mental world clearly delineated into the ten spheres, and abstractly playing around in the Ains, when it comes to straight-on, face-to-face recognition of some "other," the three grade system is the only one that holds up in the long run. A Bachelor degree is the outer order. A Master's degree in the inner. The supernal is the Doctorate. Once these have been used to gain a position of power or influence, in any arena or specialty, one's future progress is on what you produce, not on which subjects you majored in in your Master's program.

That's what I mean by "the long run."

how do you test

Test not, lest ye be tested. I don't think he's forming a hierarchy, he's forming a network. He will have to confirm if I am thinking correctly or need more medication.

Thanks for the questions.

Let me try to better explain the M.I.X.

First of all, the impetus for it came from a received text.

It is not an 'Order' in the classic sense. No rituals, dues, regular meetings etc.

There is no one to judge you, because who knows another person's Will?

This is the problem with all occult 'orders'. They're a hierarchy.

Liber AL says specifically 'abrogate are ALL rituals, all ordeals, all words and signs'. 

I take that literally, that the rituals of the old time (especially relating to magical orders) must be superseded.

The point of the M.I.X. is for each individual to affirm their commitment to Love, Will and their Self.

It's a way of connecting with the 93 Current without all the intermediaries, which is where all the problems start in an order (why else did A.C. insist that Adepts only know two people in the A.A.?)

The idea of Three Grades comes from Liber AL, not the OTO. It says there quite simply that Thelemites can be divided into Three Grades.

But who does the dividing?

Not me. YOU.

 

I have played bass guitar, and sang for the past 39 years. I also dabble in percussion and synthesizers. But mostly I play and sing all original music. A good example is all the Crowley material put out under the name Seven Ravens.

This is the problem with all occult 'orders'. They're a hierarchy.

They are attempting to replicate the true hierarchy, which is found in the interior of each person. The circuits, the planes, the spheres, even many of the paths, have been identified internally. This is why initiates and some yogis change names at certain levels (Perdurabo, Parzival, O.S.V., O.M., V.V.V.V.V., Therion -- sound familiar?).

Crowley actually made up ("made up") Imprimaturs (Oh, God ... No) that showed an entire A.'.A.'. hierarchy, made of entirely of and by him. To be fair, he did add someone else from time to time, here and there, according to who his current disciples were.

Now, when you take this internal hierarchy, a metaphor or model of the universal spectrum of human consciousness, and you apply it externally in an outer order, a place where people get together and do things, the result is usually bitter and it can become very hostile.

Ignant has not joined an outer order where they do magic and meditate, but he has affirmed the same thing takes place in big-school faculties (and, of course, administration). I understand it can be found in governmental bureaus and agencies, and we see it in the daily reality show called politics.

One way or another, we all have to wade our way through this. Crowley sez so, and I say so too. But it's not necessary to run down and join your local Tong, unless you are a 7th ray freak like I was and find that ceremonial path is cool. If anyone is entered upon the path, they will tow Ra's barge down the river Tuat in one way or another right through the years of daily life.

The Tuat ends in a hole in the East. The initiate arises with Ra's boat and ascends into the causal plane (the inner order). So there's light at the end of the tunnel in the circus of the outer order. That light is born in the initiate and it eventually pulls him or her up ... as long as the poor, bewildered, tired initiate keeps tugging that boat rope to the hole at the end ... Get it?

The inner order is depicted as harmonious, Rosicrucian bothers and sisters. All "inner orders" erected on the physical plane (i.e., concealed within or behind an outer order) are attempts to mirror or re-create conditions that only exist in a stable manner on the causal plane (Tiphareth-Geburah-Chesed). They are subject to the same disorder that is inherent in any outer order, because egos are still involved in these grades.

This does not mean that meetings of the inner order cannot take place on the physical plane. It is written everywhere, perhaps spray-painted on alley walls, that members of the inner order are quick to recognize another member, even without passwords, grips, and signs. So if two, or three, or seven get together, they all know they're operating in a different dimension simultaneously with whatever they're doing on Malkuth.

But if they set up a room behind a curtain in the main temple, and meet in secret every Friday night, and especially if they call it an "inner order," we should all hold our breaths until the urge to laugh out loud overcomes our composure.

These real-deal meetings occur spontaneously. I have seen some that were planned and held together with catalytic libation, but it's hard to generate (cause) synchronicity under normal ground-level conditions.

By the time the third grade comes around, the rules are clear: "Thus ye have Star & Star; System & System. Let not one know well the other." Communication is via the star-sponge or Indra's network.

Now the internet is etheric physical in nature. The fact that the communications of higher planes (such as thoughts, at least) can be stepped down to virtually instant real-time status. This is a reflection of the so-called Externalization of the Hierarchy.

It's a way of connecting with the 93 Current without all the intermediaries

I see. You are advocating a western form of Dzogchen, wherein all outer forms are dropped and one gets right to the point. Some people are not ready for that, so you allow them to plug in a a lesser level. You are apparently not concerned if people over-estimate their capacities, knowing that people everywhere (including the arcane realm) are full of shit, and you're not going to give them your credit card number anyway.

You apparently will allow the individual to be adjusted by the current, yourself never having to lift a finger. Such is the higher aspect of wu-wei.

Not me. YOU.

Oh Lordy and all the Saints Now you've gone and done it. Kee-rist. You can't go around telling people to make up their own minds, and get away with it.

It would be superfluous of me to comment on what has been relayed so well,

like an arrow shot to the target without looking.

 

I note one technicality that you must have absorbed through Indra's net:

In the charter paper the M.I.X. is not referred to as an Order but as a System.

The Greek original Systéma has much the same meaning as the Latin Ordo,

but its English version, aligned with Liber AL,

gives a much better flavor of what this all intends.

Star and star, system and system;

indeed.

Comet NEOWISE - 

I should have mentioned it here rather than the 'received texts' thread.

So that is now rectified.

It appeared 7 days after I accepted this accursed Grade;

Its name resonates with my Word, linguistically and via number.

That's the gist of it.

My work during NEOWISE's appearance pertains to 7°=4. Same pillar, if we're using similar maps.
