Theosophy & Blavatsky

Posted in: Theosophical Society by Moon Elf on August 08, 2009

H.P. Blavatsky said, Sirius “exerts a mystic and direct influence over the entire living heaven, and is to be found linked with every great religion of antiquity.”

II,19: Is a God to live in a dog? No! but the highest are of us. They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

II,20: Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire, are of us.

II,21: We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. Think not, o king, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live. Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake.

II,22: I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all. It is a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be strong, o man! lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture: fear not that any God shall deny thee for this.

II,23: I am alone: there is no God where I am.

II,24: Behold! these be grave mysteries; for there are also of my friends who be hermits. Now think not to find them in the forest or on the mountain; but in beds of purple, caressed by magnificent beasts of women with large limbs, and fire and light in their eyes, and masses of flaming hair about them; there shall ye find them. Ye shall see them at rule, at victorious armies, at all the joy; and there shall be in them a joy a million times greater than this. Beware lest any force another, King against King! Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath.

II,25: Ye are against the people, O my chosen!

II,26: I am the secret Serpent coiled about to spring: in my coiling there is joy. If I lift up my head, I and my Nuit are one. If I droop down mine head, and shoot forth venom, then is rapture of the earth, and I and the earth are one.

II,27: There is great danger in me; for who doth not understand these runes shall make a great miss. He shall fall down into the pit called Because, and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason.

II,28: Now a curse upon Because and his kin!

II,29: May Because be accursèd for ever!

II,30: If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops & does nought.

II,31: If Power asks why, then is Power weakness.

II,32: Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise.

II,33: Enough of Because! Be he damned for a dog!

II,34: But ye, o my people, rise up & awake!

 

NOTE: To me this seems to be Crowley’s answer to the Sirius Mystery – that it is a distraction and there is no “Because” to the Why of spirituality and if you even think there is then you are damning yourself to die in misery and feel not.  I can honestly say that since chasing this ‘because’ of the Sirius Mystery it is the biggest and worst distraction from true ‘centered’ spirituality.  Thus, I return to previous focal points and meditations where Kali/Brahmani gave me The Sun symbol of the circle with the dot in the center to return to spiritual centeredness.  However, chasing the Sirius Mystery and exposure to the ancient myths lead me to one symbol of extreme curiosity to me – the winged solar disc.

Ancient Egypt and Isis

Posted in: 13. Egypt (Isis) by Moon Elf on

http://www.siriusrising.com/main.htm

Entrusted with the wisdom and knowledge of an earlier and now forgotten civilization, the Ancient Egyptians believed that the Star Sirius held the key to the destiny of their world, and to their own personal immortality.

Their beliefs were based on a series of texts, already ancient in their time, which described special “Star Medicines” that resonated with the energy of Sirius and were capable of transforming their bodies into a higher immortal form.

http://www.siriusrising.com/myth.htm

Isis, the Great Mother, embodied in the star Sirius, brought a spiraling, resonant harmony to the Earth, a pattern of Great Force in the atmospheric aether, that not only set time, but sought to shape matter as well, manifesting a natural, aesthetic form called the Golden Ratio, or “Divine Proportion” in all her creations.

The throne was her symbol. It represented the foundational pattern on which Kingship and Civilization were structured. The symbol for Sirius was the pyramid. This symbol also represented the divine, harmonizing power of Sirius/Isis as the source of initation on Earth – a necessary mystical process that each ruler must complete.

Independance Day, July 4, to coincide with the annual Sun-Sirius conjunction, the day when the forces of RA and Sirius are in a unified alignment with Earth.

In the “Maxims of Ptahotep”, we are all urged, “Follow the Heart for as long as you live”,, for it is this organ that retains the greatest sensitivity to the harmonizing, archetypal forces of Sirius, it becomes our “listening place”, for the Sirian/Isian message of Eternal Love, Knowledge, and Understanding.

 

http://i-cias.com/e.o/texts/religion/enuma_elish_6.htm 

 (from Tablet 56 – In the Temple of Babylon)

All the decrees (and) designs were fixed.
All the gods divided the stations of heaven and earth.
The fifty great gods were present, and
The gods fixed the seven destinies for the cult.
The Lord received the bow, and set his weapon down in front of them.
The gods his fathers looked at the net which he had made,
Looked at the bow, how miraculous her construction,
And his fathers praised the deeds that he had done.
Anu raised (the bow) and spoke in the assembly of gods,
He kissed the bow. ‘May she go far!’
He gave to the bow her names, saying,
‘May Long and Far be the first, and Victorious the second;
Her third name shall be Bowstar, for she shall shine in the sky.’
He fixed her position among the gods her companions.
When Anu had decreed the destiny of the bow,
He set down her royal throne. ‘You are highest of the gods!’
And Anu made her sit in the assembly of gods.
The great gods assembled
And made Marduk’s destiny highest; they themselves did obeisance.
They swore an oath for themselves,
And swore on water and oil, touched their throats.
Thus they granted that he should exercise the kingship of the gods
And confirmed for him mastery of the gods of heaven and earth.

 

Bowstar

http://www.smoe.org/arcana/diss1.html

Once again, we find the heavenly bodies treated as deities. The Bowstar (Sirius) receives offerings just as do Ea, Ishtar, Marduk, Nin-ildu, and Shamash, with the expectation that all will help the sick person.

Many references state Inanna is associated with Sirius (the Bowstar)

Enamu Elish – Tablet 5

A sign [shall appear (?)]: sweep along its path.
Then always approach the [ ] and judge the case.
[ ] the Bowstar to kill and rob.
(15 lines broken)

Unfortunately too much is missing to make out any meaning.

Sirius [from Greek seirios scorching] In classical myth, the dog of Orion, who followed his master when he was made a constellation; it is called the Dog-star; by the Egyptians, Sothis. The dog at times symbolizes Mercury or Budha, who was called Cynocephalus, the dog-headed. It is a symbol of watchfulness and guarding. The heliacal rising of Sirius coincides in the northern hemisphere with the sultry heat of late summer, and was regarded in antiquity as a cause of that heat, or as contributing a baleful quality to it.

“The star worshipped in Egypt and reverenced by the Occultists; by the former because its heliacal rising with the Sun was a sign of the beneficent inundation of the Nile, and by the latter because it is mysteriously associated with Thoth-Hermes, god of wisdom, and Mercury, in another form. Thus Sothis-Sirius had, and still has, a mystic and direct influence over the whole living heaven, and is connected with almost every god and goddess. It was ‘Isis in the heaven’ and called Isis-Sothis, for Isis was ‘in the constellation of the dog,’ as is declared on her monuments. ‘The soul of Osiris was believed to reside in a personage who walks with great steps in front of sothis, sceptre in hand and a whip upon his shoulder.’ Sirius is also Anubis, and is directly connected with the ring “Pass me not’; it is, moreover, identical with Mithra, the Persian Mystery god, and with Horus and even Hathor, called sometimes the goddess Sothis. Being connected with the Pyramid, Sirius was, therefore, connected with the initiations which took place in it. A temple to Sirius-Sothis once existed within the great temple of Denderah. To sum up, all religions are not, as Dufeu, the French Egyptologist, sought to prove, derived from Sirius, the god-star, but Sirius-Sothis is certainly found in connection with every religion of antiquity” (TG 300).

Tetragrammaton

Posted in: Tetragrammaton by Moon Elf on

The Sacred Name of God:  The Tetragrammaton is the holy “four-lettered name” of God. Remembering that Hebrew is read from right to left, this name, yod-heh-vav-heh, is most properly transliterated as YHVH, but sometimes as YHWH (Yahweh) or JHVH (Jehovah). The name is considered so sacred in Judaism that it is never spoken aloud and is always replaced by euphemisms such as Adonai (‘Lord’) or ha shem (‘the name’).

 

The Tetragrammaton is often employed in ceremonial magic, and each of the letters can be considered as corresponding to one of the Four Worlds of the Kabbalah. Our discussion of the pentagram as Pentagrammaton illustrates the association of the Tetragrammaton with the pentagram.

 

———————————————

I find this most interesting because my interest in Remote Viewing lead me to start building my Interra project and then suddenly all this information started flowing in.  Part of the “upper level” goals of Interra were to regard psi as not something of legend but a physical reality and thus learn to channel it – to open the 3rd Eye and actually use it and teach others to do so as well.  I find it very amazing that this rapid succession of synchronicities lead to the study of Sirius and where that study has lead me.  The goal of Interra is to take both esoteric studies such as depth psychology and spiritual methods and practices such as ritual and metaphysics while at the same time paying attention to politics, history (especially that which is suppressed), and various scientific studies and cultural and psychological effects of technologies such as computers, radio broadcasting, etc.. on society and to put them all together in an attempt to understand the true nature of Psi.  If this study has been correct the answer has been right before our eyes all this time – and lies with our understanding of The Sirius Connection.

After all this I must take a break so that I may begin thinking more rationally as I eventually connected this to the Seven Rays, Esoteric Astrology and Esoteric Psychology.  My initial goal with Interra again was to combine science and spirituality to find an ‘ultimate’ truth and expand on human consciousness to the point of psi and possibly beyond.  I’ve always been curious about HP Blavatsky as I’ve always understood that this was her approach with Theosophy but I’ve never found a good entry point to research her theories before until now.  I believe I will start with her writings on Isis Unveiled especially since this whole connection for me personally is with the archetype of Isis.

Kabballah / Qabalah

Posted in: 09. Kaballah / Qabalah by Moon Elf on

Binah: The Sphere of Understanding

While the synchronicities in various esoteric studies as well as sciences dealing with time and space plus the consciousness studies of mind altering substances all seem to lead to Sirius in some way or another I believe that the Kaballistic Sephirah of Binah holds the best summary of WHAT SIRIUS IS ALL ABOUT.

http://www.inner.org/sefirot/sefbinah.htm

Physical Associations:  Astrology & I Ching

Psi & Science: Time/Space Continuum and Quantum Physics

Archangelic Level: Spiritual Intermediaries which all lead to Aloath Elohim (The Great Mother)

God Aspect: Aloath Elohim, who caretakes the Spiritual Principle of WHO WE WERE BORN TO BE

Binah is associated in the soul with the power of conceptual analysis and reasoning, both inductive and deductive.

The “understanding” of binah also implies the ability to examine the degree of truth or falsehood inherent in a particular idea.

Another feature identified with the property of binah is the ability to explain and elucidate concepts both to oneself and others. For this reason it is symbolized in Kabbalah as “the wide river.”

Another source on the Zohar has this to say about it:

http://www.kolel.org/zohar/intro.1.html

Binah is the hidden source within God. Our texts allude to Her a few times. In the Zohar’s imagery She is a great river from which all streams flow out; She is the mother or grandmother of everything. Her name means “Understanding” and is also connected with ideas of making a distinction between things (bein = “between”) and building (banah). Within and beyond Her is unfathomable unity; out of Her emerges everything we can understand, the built-up world of distinct entities. Thus Binah is also the beginning of judgment. Before Binah, as far as anything can be perceived at all, it is all love and compassion. With Binah comes the beginning of difference, conflict and limitation, which are necessary for the world as we know it to exist, and the beginning of necessity itself as opposed to freedom.

The first polarities of existence to emerge from Binah are Chesed and Gevurah. They are polarities we can find in ourselves and in our experience of the world; their imagery builds on a tradition found in the Talmud and Midrash which finds them in God. That midrashic tradition speaks about the midat ha-rachamim — God’s attribute of compassion — and the midat ha-din, God’s attribute of justice. The midrashic texts see these “attributes” as polarities of God’s personality and even as separate beings competing for God’s attention: love on one side, justice on the other side, making irreconciliable demands. The imagery of Chesed and Gevurah also draws on the key Jewish experiential concepts of human love and fear of God. The attribute of compassion, and Chesed, stir our feelings of love; the harshness of the attribute of justice, Gevurah, is frightening.

The fear of God as the Zohar understands it is not just about awe or reverence; it includes terror, and it is a realistic response to a terrifying reality. The Zohar sometimes dwells on this fear response and celebrates it, without sugar-coating it in any way.

I’m going to note here that I believe this is the origin of Duality – again refer to Timewave Zero and Interra in regards to dualism and equalities – ie God IS the Devil – they are one in the same.

The same site continues:

EVIL
The Zohar is true to experience in its understanding of evil, too. To many religious thinkers, evil is only an illusion, or only a lack of good, with no power of its own. God is always good and always present to us. The devil or Satan is nonexistent, a metaphor, or at most a servant of God, as in the Bible. The authors of the Zohar understood life very differently. They experienced evil as real and powerful. Their Satan is not a mere servant of God, but a threatening, powerful counterforce. They sensed that evil originates in God, and expressed this radically; see, in this course, “Jacob and Esau”. Also, there is a split, a gap, in the divine, between the Sefirot of Tif’eret and Malkhut, and there are times where we experience that gap as an absence of God. One of my teachers was once lighting Shabbat candles by the window of her apartment, on a high floor of a building. She looked up from blessing the candles, looked out over the city, and saw a city empty of God. It was a vision of the split, the absence. The Zohar’s vision of the reality of evil and divine absence is not true to everyone’s experience and it may be too depressing to be spiritually useful for many of us. Still, in our times, in a world of emotional bleakness in many people’s inner lives and devastation outside, it is compelling.

Another observation.  Where Da’ath lies in the Kaballah the surrounding 5 Sephiroh create an upside down pentagram like the ones used in Satanic literature with Tefiret at the bottom point.

Also the Dark Qabalah of Gates of Hell uses an averse pentagram but that tree lies upside-down beneath the standard Tree of Life like a reflection in a pool of water at it’s base sharing Malkuth.  Thus, technically it is upright as well.

Also, in the Tree the bottom half contains an upright pentagram.  The reverse one over Da’ath would be viewed as upright by the mystic as in this position he would be The Hanged Man.

Thus it seems that the upright pentagram is for transference of matter toward Spirit and the averse from Spirit to matter.   This is depending on what you are trying to attain; enlightenment or magic.

Kaballah

NOTE: During this portion of my studies I had a bizarre experience while contemplating the ‘True nature of God’, the Tetragrammatron, the Kaballah, Left-Hand path occult studies like Satanism and what they all mean in esoteric terms and how it compares to paganism.  Somehow, while doing my usual nightly things, my wife was on the computer, my son in the bath, I told my wife that I felt (in regards to all of this and the Sirius Mystery in general) that I was losing my mind and seriously began to fear I just might.  I had a weird experience in my mind’s eye of witnessing the non-dual nature of the Judeo-Christian God who’s Shadow Self is all things we associate with Satanism.  It was as if I could see it and feel it.  This later lead me to information on the Black Sun and Da’ath of the Kaballah and upon reading about it in Will Parfitt’s The New Living Qabalah this may be the “demon” Choronzon and it’s nature is dissolution.  This instantly brought to mind the fear of dissolution of the giant spider I’ve had for years and that Kali/Brahmani is my guide – and Kali is a demon slayer.  I do not know what instigated the actual experience nor how to reinduce it to explore it more fully but it was a terrifying one that was quickly pushed back into the dark as it were but I know it will come back again one day and Kali will be by my side (metaphorically speaking).  I am now attempting to find out what I can from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn out of curiosity and also asking of the Temple of the Vampire as well.  I am obviously leaning toward myself and neither of these orders but also plan to avoid the negative occult like Satanism etc. though this is where people are obviously tempted to do so just as Crowley and others were.  I will not make that mistake.  I will stand firm to “My True Will” as this is definitely what this experience was partially about as I could see clearly the infinite paradigms of Will, even unconscious will at play in the world.  It was strange to say the least.

The key to this is Da’ath

Daath means Knowledge. Knowledge without Understanding. It is situated in the area of the Tree called The Abyss. It is sometimes called “The False Head” – coming up from the bottom of the Tree, it can look like Kether; but looks are deceiving. Daath is not the jewel that lies beyond the Abyss – it is IN the Abyss, and is also the gateway to the terrifying reverse side of the Tree, the zone of the Qlipoth – the demons and diseases that haunt our darker side.

Daath corresponds to the throat chakra. –funny because I’ve been working with this for years!! RhythmUS.net

In the Jewish Kabbalah, the qelipoth are not considered evil as such – they are necessary at times. For example, many fruits and nuts require an unpleasant shell or rind to protect their soft and delicious inner core; however, they do represent blocks and restrictions.

The Qlipoth are accessed through the sephira of Daath, the realm of the arch-demon Choronzon, the Demon of Dispersion. Daath leads to the reverse side of the Tree of Life, where each sephira has a corresponding disorder or disease,

Choronzon:

It is said that every mage must some day confront and overcome it in order to ascend. Choronzon will do its best to hinder anybody from reaching Ascension or any other goal. Its greatest triumph is when a mage loses Arete. On December 6, 1909 Aleister Crowley foolishly let himself be possessed by the demon (Se Liber XXX Aerum, The Vision and the Voice, for more detailed descriptions). The end result was close to a disaster, and according to many mages Crowley lost the path towards Ascension.

NOTE: Refer to dissolution note above and Kali – also Choronzon seems to be the God archetype of the Chao or Chaos of Chaos Magick.  In other words Choronzon is the Great Archetype of Chao

chao

Thus, if matter is condensed spirit (as philosophers say) then tapping the Source of all Creation such as this archetype then technically it could be possible to, through the use of magic or verbal command alone, bring ‘matter’ into existence formed by personal will.  Extreme I know but this is theoretical.

On The Sorceries of Zos by Austin O. Spare taken from Cults of the Shadow by Kenneth Grant

(7) Vide infra.

The New Sexuality, in the sense that Spare conceived it, is the sexuality not  of positive dualities but of the Great Void, the Negative, the Ain: The Eye of Infinite Potential. The New Sexuality is, simply, the manifestation of non-manifestation, or of Universe ‘B’, as Bertiaux would have it, which is equivalent to Spare’s Neither-Neither concept. Universe ‘B’ represents the absolute difference of that world of ‘all otherness’ to anything pertaining to the known world, or Universe ‘A’. Its gateway is Daath, sentinelled by the Demon Choronzon. Spare describes this concept as ‘the gateway of all inbetweenness’. In terms of Voodoo, this idea is implicit in the Petro rites with their emphasis upon the spaces between the cardinal points of the compass: the off-beat rhythms of the drums that summon the loa from beyond the Veil and formulate the laws of their manifestation.(8) Spare’s system of sorcery, as expressed in Zos Kia Cultus, continues in a straight line not only the Petro tradition of Voodoo, but also the Vama Marg of Tantra, with its eight directions of space typified by the Yantra of the Black Goddess, Kali: the Cross of the Four Quarters plus the inbetweenness concepts that together compose the eightfold Cross, the eight-petalled Lotus, a synthetic symbol of the Goddess of the Seven Stars plus her son, Set or Sirius. (9)

NOTE: Kali is The Terrible Face of God – see text under Kali….after rereading this some of it makes more sense and I can see the true nature of Kali much better.  I also noticed there was another meditation after the meeting the Goddess one under Fire regarding my introduction to the symbol for both Fire and The Sun.  Now when I look at this meditation I am reminded of The Abyss. 😉   Also as KALI IS MY GUIDE it is very important to note here “One of the most important aspects of Kali is that of Goddess Durga, the conqueror of the demon Mahishasura. This demon represents in the Hindu tradition the incarnation of all forces of Darkness.”

http://www.wisdomsdoor.com/tol/daath.shtml

Daath is the Sephira of creation. It is here that the tidal forces of positive and negative come together to be used for the benefit of the physical developmental system. It is here where the polarized energy pours forth from the Abyss and becomes manifested into forms, such as your physical universe. As such, it is a very powerful and ominous place. The forces of positive and negative are kept in tight abeyance here, and this tension can be felt at all times, upon visiting.

Entrance into this Sephira can be achieved easily, once you know how to get in; however, leaving is another story entirely. Because of the energies present here, it takes a very strong will and tight conscious control to exit this Sephira, which is one of the reasons this place is kept hidden. If you are not prepared properly, you could enter here and be unable to leave, thus forfeiting your physical existence. Also, the energy that one can command here can be very destructive, if not used properly. Remember! This Sephira is the storehouse of all the energy of the physical universe and its accompanying developmental system.

When you are ready, your Sephira Spirit-Guide will show you how to enter Daath. Once he/she does, you will never forget how to get in and can come and go as you please. Know that if your Spirit-Guide showed you the way in, you possess the necessary resolve to leave; though, at first, you may find it difficult to do so. It’s only when you force an entry into this Sephira, before you are adept enough, that you can run the risk of not being able to exit.

Now, upon your first few encounters in Daath, you will seem to be alone. The inhabitants here do not like strangers and will not show themselves to you, until you and they are comfortable. So, at first, this Sephira may appear lonely and inhospitable. Also, it is a dark place, with dark greens and yellows and blues and greys about. In fact, it will be hard to distinguish colors while here. Daath also possesses a kind of electric to its atmosphere. This electricity is due to the enormous power that flows through this Sephira. You may feel a buzzing in your head (brow center) while here. This buzzing is the energy as it moves too and fro.

When the inhabitants do show themselves, don’t expect parties, fun, and games. The angels here are dedicated to their work, and they take that work most seriously. They are absolute in their ability to control their thoughts and direct the energy just when and where it has to go. These angels are master reality-creators, and their intellect can not be paralleled by any other. Ninth level healers come from this Sephira too, and, if you have ever had the opportunity to meet with these angels, either in meditation, in dreams, or during a healing, you will know what we mean by their seriousness. Their total focus rests to the task at hand and nothing else matters until that task is complete.

For a high-level magician (like a Magus), there is much to learn from the beings here. For one thing, their dedication to duty and how they achieve quick results, by being able to finely focus thoughts and energy, is unmatched. Seeing the expression on just one angel’s faces here will tell you much. In many ways, Daath is a mental place, born of discipline and focus and intent. It also is a place to learn the value of being charged at all times, for the energy here is always high and always ready to be applied and used. It’s not a stagnant place either. For the energy here must be directed and sent out, otherwise the tidal forces would build and rip the Sephira apart.

The Archangel here is called EKENOR. He will come to you in time, but not before you have had a chance to look around and meet with some of the other angels. He can help you to direct and focus your energy but he will do this by setting up tasks for you to complete. These tasks will accomplish this learning and in the process cement-in the information. Some other Archangels, in the other Sephirah, will just give you the information you seek. Not so with EKENOR. He expects that if you want to know the answer to something than you want to use it. So, don’t be surprised if you are put to work, shortly after meeting with this entity.

Now, you can go to this Sephira when you need absolute power over something. However, be warned that karma operates very intently with this energy, and, if whatever it is you are using this energy for is not for the best good, you will reap the karmic results.

As you can see there are several reasons why this Sephira was kept a secret throughout the years. However, for the carefully minded student that has achieved a sufficient level of magical expertise, it can be an invaluable learning tool as well as a great source of energy to create your world with. Use care and caution here, and you will do fine.

b. The Star

Posted in: 06. the Tarot by Moon Elf on

The Star card of the Tarot is associated with Sirius. 

http://www.aeclectic.net/basics/star.html

Basic Meaning:

“With Aquarius as its ruling sign, The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench the Querent’s thirst, with a guiding light to the future.”

A great, radiant star of eight rays, surrounded by seven lesser stars–also of eight rays. The female figure in the foreground is entirely naked. Her left knee is on the land and her right foot upon the water. She pours Water of Life from two great ewers, irrigating sea and land. Behind her is rising ground and on the right a shrub or tree, whereon a bird alights. The figure expresses eternal youth and beauty. The star is l’étoile flamboyante, which appears in Masonic symbolism, but has been confused therein. That which the figure communicates to the living scene is the substance of the heavens and the elements. It has been said truly that the mottoes of this card are “Waters of Life freely” and “Gifts of the Spirit.”

The summary of several tawdry explanations says that it is a card of hope. On other planes it has been certified as immortality and interior light. For the majority of prepared minds, the figure will appear as the type of Truth unveiled, glorious in undying beauty, pouring on the waters of the soul some part and measure of her priceless possession. But she is in reality the Great Mother in the Kabalistic Sephira Binah, which is supernal Understanding, who communicates to the Sephiroth that are below in the measure that they can receive her influx.

The Story:

On the bleak landscape where the Tower stood, the Fool sits, empty, despairing. He hoped to find himself on this spiritual journey, but now he feels he’s lost everything, even himself. Sitting on the cold stones, he gazes up at the night sky wondering what’s left. And that is when he notices, nearby, a beautiful girl with two water urns. As he watches, she kneels by a pool of water illuminated with reflected starlight. She empties the urns, one into the pool, one onto the thirsty ground.

“What are you doing,” he asks her. She looks up at him, her eyes twinkling like stars. “I am refilling this pool, so that those who are thirsty may drink, and I am also watering the earth so that, come spring, the seeds will grow,” she tells him. And then she adds, “Come. Drink.” The Fool comes to kneel with her by the pool and drink. The water tastes wonderful, like liquid starlight. “I can see you are sad,” the girl continues, “and I know why. But you must remember that you have not lost all. Knowledge, possibilities, hope, you still have all of these. Like stars, they can lead you to a new future.” Even as she says this, she began to fade away, like dew, vanishing. All that remains is a gleam that was at the center of her forehead. This rises up and up, until it settles in the night sky as a shining star. “Follow your star,” the woman’s voice seems to sing from that light, “and have hope.” The Fool takes in a breath and rises. It is a dark night, a desolate land. But for the first time, he has a guiding light to show him the way. Distant as it is, it heals his heart, and restores his faith.

http://www.the-equinox.org/vol1/no2/eqi02020h.html

(Equinox vol.1 part II – from RITUAL OF THE 4° = 7¤ GRADE OF PHILOSOPHUS under The Pyramid of the Four Elements – a book by Crowley)

This Key represents a Star with seven principal and fourteen secondary rays, altogether twenty-one, the number of the divine name Eheieh. In the Egyptian sense it is Sirius, the Dog-Star, the star of Isis-Sothis. Around it are the seven planets. The nude figure {279} is the synthesis of Isis, Nephthys, and Hathoor. She is Aima, Binah, and Tebunah, the great Supernal Mother Aima Elohim pouring upon Earth the Waters of Creation. In This Key she is completely unveiled, whilst in the twenty-first she was only partially so. The two urns contain the influences of Chokhmah and Binah. On the right springs the Tree of Life, and on the left the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and of Evil, whereon the bird of Hermes alights; therefore this Key represents the restored World 

Sirius (Dog/God Star) – Introduction

Posted in: 01. Sirius (the Dog Star) by Moon Elf on August 07, 2009

All information regarding Sirius began coming to me after I discovered Remote Viewing was a real technique used in the United States military and I desired information on discovering the source of intuition and psi and how to acquire these talents to be used for the greater good.  In my research on RV and the government I bumped into various conspiracy theory associations and eventually Robert Anton Wilson thanks to my interest in Timothy Leary.

The star of Isis is also known as Sirius.  Sirius is located in the constellation Canis Major and is the brightest star in the sky, often used to locate the 12 standard zodiac.  It appears July 23rd in the Southern sky and was noticed by ancient Egyptians who built shafts into the Queens chamber which this star would shine through.  It marked the beginning of the Nile floods and was a symbol of fertility.  Sirius is the “eye” of the dog of the constellation and is one of the points of the Winter Triangle shared with Betelguese (of the Orion constellation) and Procyon (of Canis Minor).  Canis Major is also known as Orion’s dog. 

Sirius is actually a binary star system in which the star Sirius A orbits with a white dward Sirius B in a pattern which mimics the DNA double helix.  It is claimed that the Dogon tribe of not only knew of Sirius A and B before their discovery but also claim a Sirius C which will have  a planet with life on it much like Earth.  Supposedly the “gods” which brought civilization and the teachings of ancient cultures like Egypt visited the Dogon tribe and told them of these astral bodies.  It is suggested that French archeologist may have ‘tipped’ off the Dogon and that the mention of them knowing of the existence of Sirius B was not actually public until after it’s discovery.  However, in the link listed below for more info it is claimed that Sirius C has been discovered by Daniel Benese and J.L. Duvent in Astronomy and Astrophysics magazine in 1995 a point which most claim would prove the validity of the Dogon tribe’s claims.  Prior to it’s discovery our lack of knowledge of Sirius C was often used to debunc the Dogon’s claims. Does Sirius C really exist?  I have yet to research this more thoroughly.  Supposedly, Astronomy and Astrophysics stated that a small red dwarf star, Sirius C, seems to exist in the system of the star Sirius.2 They have detected a perturbation which cannot be explained by any other means.  If this is finally confirmed this will clarify the historical “Red Sirius” of legend and we would then have to assume the stories of extraterrestrial visitors to be true after all.  Boggles the mind to even dare to think it because we’ve been trained to consider it nothing more than mere fantasy.  It is also stated that the the Harvard Bright Star Catalog has been quoted as saying “(Sirius) C, companion to B at 1.4″ suspected but not confirmed”  Cannot find official sources to date.

Sirius is associated with all sorts of seemingly hallucinatory experiences and bizarre occurrences (refer to Robert Anton Wilson’s Cosmic Trigger I for further associations including A. Crowley, Blavatsky, T. Leary, himself, and Gurdjieff in regards to Illuminati, synchronicities, and communications with Higher Intelligence in regards to the Sirius Connection) such as aliens delivering pancakes and talking dogs – communication with Higher Intelligence especially through the use of mind altering substances and is associated with the Illuminati – I think the eye of the dog in the Winter Triangle is the Eye in the Pyramid archetypal image which so many conspiracy theories center around.   It has been associated with the Eye of Horus and has some associations with that archetype as well.  It is also known as the star of Mercury and Buddha.  It is also the Argenteum Astrum (A.’A.’) of Ordo Templi Orientus (Crowley’s Thelemic organization) and is known as The Silver Star.  It is further claimed that Crowley’s Book of the Law as well as Timothy Leary’s Eight Neurological Circuits (the StarSeed Transmission) were both channeled from Sirius.  There are also some Yogic and Tantric associations.

“Sirius is a vast expression of divinity, the great star of initiation, the parent of our solar system, and the point in cosmic consciousness from which issues the true symbol of the cross.”
– Lord Djwhal Khul, through A.A. Bailey

A central key to this understanding is that our Solar system revolves around Sirius as a central sun in a much larger system – a much greater consciousness, a much greater life than we are able to perceive. In this larger life, our Solar Logos, our solar system, is but one centre – a minor chakra of particular energy and purpose in relation to a much, much greater life.

Sirius is a centre in that great life Lord Djwhal Khul refers to as the One About Whom Naught May Be Said – the Cosmic Logos who manifests and animates a body compased of seven solar systems or Solar Logoi. This is analogous to the human body with its seven major etheric chakras.

Lord Djwhal Khul states that “the entire work of the Great White Lodge is contolled from Sirius.” This implies, by definition, that the spiritual evolution of humanity and Earth is controlled from Sirius. It is Siriun energy, Djwhal Khul indicates, which flows into the consciousness of Hierarchy, streams through its seven basic divisions, and stimulates the members of the Hierarchy to progress toward their higher initiations.

Djwhal Khul mentions many links of Sirius with other constellations and star systems, such as the Great Bear and the Pleiades. With these two systems, Sirius forms what he calls “the prototypical triangle.” From this triangle flow all the energies circulating and contolling our solar system – i.e, energizing our Solar Logos.

Alice Bailey, in Consciousness of the Atom, writes,

“In the Eastern books they say that in the Sun Sirius lies the source of wisdom and that the influence or the energy of love emenates from there.”

To identify Sirius as the source of love-wisdom, is to claim it as a centre of transcendent power of universal inclusion and profound understanding about the nature of being on all levels and, in this second ray solar system, all that we understand by the term GOD.

NOTE: Even if any of the insinuated connotations to this star are NOT true then at the very least it as well as the Winter Triangle may at least have some form of Astrological influence just as the planets and other astrological bodies do on the human psyche and/or nervous system and may be responsible for the “belief” in God and or gods/goddesses and the whole host of archetypal subconscious associations. The answer to Sirius and the metaphysical/occult studies may lie in Quantum Physics. Find the book The Sirius Mystery and read it!!!!
