    There are adorations and annunciations to the Feminine and Daughter, but they are privileged. 😉

    From my POV, Thelema is Pantheistic, which is a form of Monotheism. Considering Thelema with the lens of Spinoza's ethics makes a lot of sense.

    😀
    I came to the forum after long-time-no-see with a question in mind to post and randomly checked here in Qabalah section to see what's new - to find this old thread that addresses, however in its own different way, exactly the subject of my question !

    Does anyone know (ideally, historical info, with year/century and everything pertinent) when the Shemhamphorash started being attributed to the Zodiac, in sequence as we now have it?

    The thought has occurred to me regarding magical squares in a general sense.

    I intend to experiment a bit in a month or so.

    Possibly starting with Enochian tablets.

    If you want to work on the Abremelin, we can compare notes 😄

    The mind is formed by way of underlying tendency. Vasanas they are called in Sanskrit. The mind is like an ocean and thoughts are its body and the tendencies are the laws that create change and sway it. This is why concentration is vital to yoga practice whose aim is nirvikalpa samadhi. It silences the tendencies, though that takes discipline and perseverance. The nature of the magical circle is silence. I've said before that silence is the safeguard of all magical and mystical work. Choronzon functions by way of belief ("I am I"), its medium is the substratum of the Abyss (Da'at, knowledge). Silence bypasses all of that, for how can belief take form where there is no means to do so?

    This is why all good mystics are aware (note the pun) that their own beliefs are ultimately false or counterfeit. They are but an inferior derivation of the divine intuition, who speaks not in words; the Neschama. Just don't mix the planes! 😉

    I didn't spot any reference to the new aeon but in his book Mysterium Coniunctionis He also describes a personal God:

    ...For the spirit alone penetrates all things, even the most solid bodies. Thus the catholicity of religion, or of the true Church, consists not in a visible and bodily gathering together of men, but in the invisible, spiritual concord and harmony of those who believe devoutly and truly in the one Jesus Christ. Whoever attaches himself to a particular church outside this King of Kings, who alone is the shepherd of the true spiritual church, is a sectarian, a schismatic, and a heretic. For the Kingdom of God cometh not with observation, but is within us, as our Saviour himself says in the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke...
    ... “But you will ask, where then are those true Christians, who are free from all sectarian contagion?” They are “neither in Samaria, nor in Jerusalem, nor in Rome, nor in Geneva, nor in Leipzig,” but are scattered everywhere through the world, “in Turkey, in Persia, Italy, Gaul, Germany, Poland, Bohemia, Moravia, England, America, and even in farthest India..."

    I also found many kabbalistic references in that book. His collected works are full of references from rosicrucians and alchemical studies.

    Voices ! Lights ! Sounds !
    So MANY - now, and to come.
    The 'Mystic' ignores them,
    As should the Magician;
    Heeding only those whom come
    at the appointed hour

    I think we are all ready doing that.

    As part and parcel to Nuit,
    THAT which has been divided,
    Naturally flows back to the source.

    0 becomes 1,
    a single verse becomes many;
    Each beckoned, two
    spin , turn, face
    "The Sun"
    Praise IT, Tell IT
    What has been done !

    I find that by taking the perspective we are dealing with Feminine/Masculine principles,
    rather than a Male/Female manifestation thereof resolves the conflict.

    Perhaps the flesh bits dangling , or not, between legs allows a person to resonate better with certain principles,
    In a ritual context the image presented could be said to supersede the identify of the individual.

    So, a "male human" might provide a better costume for the role, but, in a sense, you should be "ignoring the *body" in a ritual context.

    *EDIT: changed tense of a word, and person to body

    A moment for the spinning globe to slow may be an expression of our collective Will.

    In modern society people are constantly bombarded with information, rarely, if ever, granted the opportunity or taking it to process.

    You are only restricted if you resist.

    In the binding,
    Straight jacket and gag;
    I found freedom
    Closing my eyes
    To listen
