Grimoires

Grimoires are books of ceremonies, rituals, and spells that are to be used in ceremonial magic composed in Europe from the fifteenth to the sixteenth centuries. The texts provide rules regarding symbols, chants, and spells, and describe how to utilize them to perform effective magical effects. Black magicians circulated the text throughout Europe in the twelfth century; the Inquisition condemned it as a dangerous text in 1559. As magicians never knew if they would be persecuted for their practice, they tended to keep these books secret. As a result it is hard to determine when they first appeared.

The oldest ones seem to be based on kabalistic grimoires, such as Sefer Raziel HaMalakh, the Book of the Angel Raziel, written in Hebrew and Aramaic in the thirteenth century. These kabalistic texts in turn were influenced by the Greek Magical Papyri, a group of Hellenistic Egyptian texts written from the second century b.c.e. to the fifth century c.e.

The most popular medieval grimoire was The Key of Solomon, which gave instructions for raising spirits, angels, or demons. In the first century C.E. the historian Josephus (c. 37–c. 100) refers to a book of incantations for summoning spirits written by Solomon.Another grimoire, The Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin the Sage, became popular later and was used extensively by magicians even into the twentieth century. The sorcerers of the Middle Ages who practiced black magick followed to the letter the instructions recorded in the Great Grimoires, books filled with rites, rituals, incantations, conjurations, and evocations of demonic entities. The deity most often invoked by the dark sorcerer of medieval times to the present day is Satanas, a direct descendant of the Egyptian Set and an alias for the Persians’ Ahriman, the Muslims’ Iblis, the Hebrews’ Asmodeus and Beelzebub, and Pan, the goat-footed nature god of the Greeks, who became the image of Satan in the common mind.

Pentacles from a medieval grimoire bear the the names of the angels associated with each of the seven planets.

The grimoires provided the most complete description of magical preparation and practice since the ancient Egyptian texts. Here is a list of the types of instructions often found in a grimoire:

Purpose of the ritual: Ceremonial magic can be used to accomplish many things; cursing or destroying an enemy or rival; attracting wealth or a lover; or the ultimate goal, increasing one’s power in an effort to become like a god. Of course in the highest form of magic the ultimate goal is to become enlightened. To accomplish the goal the magician will enlist spiritual aid by summoning a spirit, an angel, a demon, or a god. A magician may also summon the spirit of a person who has died. This is called necromancy. It is often classed as a type of divination because the dead were said to have knowledge of the future, and this knowledge was what the necromancer sought.

Preparation of the magician: Preparation includes the training of the mind through meditation and prayer, but it also includes purification. Besides praying and focusing the mind on the object of the ritual for weeks before beginning, the magician is often instructed to abstain from sex and food for this period and to maintain strict cleanliness. A magician soiled in his or her mind or body is inviting demonic invasion.

Choosing a place: The best place for a magic ritual is one where spirits reside, such as a graveyard, a church, or a deserted crossroad, but a magician may prefer his or her own dwelling, which has been magically charged through meditative practice.

Choosing a time: The best time is usually at night when spirits are more active. The magician may also use astrology to determine the best day and hour to assure the success of the ritual.

Preparing the place: The most important aspect of preparation is the drawing of a magic circle that the magician will stand in.

The proper tools and dress: The magician most often wore a clean white robe for the ritual, but other colors, such as black may be appropriate for certain purposes. Like all ritual tools, the robe should be new and clean. The magician’s tools include candles, incense, herbs, and oils that are chosen to harmonize with the spirit being summoned or to stimulate the magician’s psychic abilities. Other tools can include a magic wand, a sword, a chalice, and various talismans in the form of magic squares or circular designs often referred to as pentacles or pentagrams.

The proper incantation: Essentially, the incantation is a form of words of power and this is the main part of the ritual. As with the circle, the incantation must be said correctly or bad things can happen. An important part of the incantation is knowledge of the name of the spirit being summoned. Magicians believe that there is a magical connection between any being and its name. When properly pronounced a spirit cannot resist being summoned by name.

Book of Genesis

I thought it would be appropriate to include exerpts from the book of Genesis to help this groups understanding of the origins of the groups name.

The Book of Genesis (from the Latin Vulgate, in turn borrowed or transliterated from Greek ???es??, meaning “origin”; “In the beginning”), is the first book of the Hebrew Bible (the Tanakh) and the Christian Old Testament.

The book describes its own structure around ten “toledot” sections (the “these are the generations of…” phrases), but many modern commentators see it in terms of a “primeval history” (chapters 1-11) followed by the cycle of Patriarchal stories (chapters 12-50). The basic narrative expresses the central theme: God creates the world and appoints man as his regent, but man proves disobedient and God destroys his world through the Flood. The new post-Flood world is equally corrupt, but God does not destroy it, instead calling one man, Abraham, to be the seed of its salvation. At God’s command Abraham descends from his home into the land of Canaan, given to him by God, where he dwells as a sojourner, as does his son Isaac and his grandson Jacob. Jacob’s name is changed to Israel, and through the agency of his son Joseph, the children of Israel descend into Egypt, 70 people in all with their households, and God promises them a future of greatness. Genesis ends with Israel in Egypt, ready for the coming of Moses and the Exodus. The narrative is punctuated by a series of covenants with God, successively narrowing in scope from all mankind (the covenant with Noah) to a special relationship with one people alone (Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob).

Tradition credits Moses as the author of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, but the books are in fact anonymous and look back on Moses as a figure from the distant past; some traditions contained in Genesis are as old as the United Monarchy, but modern scholars increasingly see it as a product of the 6th and 5th centuries BC.

For Jews and Christians alike, the theological importance of Genesis centers on the covenants linking (God) to his Chosen People and the people to the Promised Land. Christianity has interpreted Genesis as the prefiguration of certain cardinal Christian beliefs, primarily the need for salvation (the hope or assurance of all Christians) and the redemptive act of Christ on the Cross as the fulfillment of covenant promises as the Son of God.

Genesis appears to be structured around the recurring phrase elleh toledot, meaning “these are the generations.” The first use of the phrase refers to the “generations of heaven and earth”, and the remainder mark individuals – Noah, the “sons of Noah”, Shem, etc., down to Jacob. It is not clear, however, just what they meant to the original authors, and most modern commentators divide it into two parts based on subject matter, a “primeval history” (chapters 1-11) and a “patriarchal history” (chapters 12-50). While the first is far shorter than the second, it sets out the basic themes and provides an interpretive key for understanding the entire book. The “primeval history” has a symmetrical structure hinged around chapter 6-9, the flood story, with the events before the flood mirrored by the events after. The “patriarchal history” recounts the events of the major patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to whom God reveals himself and to whom the promise of descendants and land is made, while the story of Joseph serves to take the Israelites into Egypt in preparation for the next book, Exodus.

Genesis is perhaps best seen as an example of “antiquarian history”, a type of literature telling of the first appearance of humans, the stories of ancestors and heroes, and the origins of culture, cities and so forth. The most notable examples are found in the work of Greek historians of the 6th century BC: their intention was to connect notable families of their own day to a distant and heroic past, and in doing so they did not distinguish between myth, legend, and what we would call facts. Professor Jean-Louis Ska of the Pontifical Biblical Institute calls the basic rule of the antiquarian historian the “law of conservation”: everything old is valuable, nothing is eliminated. Ska also points out the purpose behind such antiquarian histories: antiquity is needed to prove the worth of Israel’s traditions to the nations (the neighbours of the Jews in early Persian Palestine), and to reconcile and unite the various factions within Israel itself.

Hitler’s Occult Religion

Hitler , the Nazi Occult Messiah founded an Occult Order utilizing Ancient Black magic Knowledge and Practices. The Third Reich, in particular the SS was an Evil Occult Order based on the principles of Occult Magical practices.

The Nazi upper echelon sought to usher in a secular and religious order through overwhelming physical might and mass mind control.

One of their goals obviously , was the elimination of the Judaic race. Another was to supplant Christianity in Europe with their new Nazi Religion with Adolph Hitler in place of Christ.

The Nazi elite such as the SS were taught psychic knowledge, such as what they labeled tapping into the “Vril Force”, the Vril force was an energy source utilized by the Vril-ya race in an 1871 book by Bulwer Lytton “The Coming Race ” The story is about a miner who finds his way into a cavern leading to a subterranean world inhabited by an advanced race. In appearance they greatly resemble the Medieval images of Angels.

The upper echelon was privy to the hard-core Nazi mystical teachings ,perhaps as many claim , by the Unseen and Unknown Occult Superiors who taught Hitler and who were assumed by his associates to endow him with his uncanny and mesmerizing hypnotic powers.

Hitler’s aide, and Nazi President of the Danzig Senate from 1933-1934 Hermann Rauschning wrote an eye witness account of the madness of the Reich: “Conversations With Hitler ” -first published in the U.S. in 1940 as the Voice of Destruction . Although elements of Rauschnings “eye- witness” accounts have been discredited as Allied War propaganda , or to have been lifted from various works of fictional literature , it is not without historical significance, the Soviets entered it into evidence at the Nuremberg trials. The following is quoted from the Rauschning book:

“What will the social order of the future be like? Comrade, I will tell you. There will be a class of overlords, after them the rank and file of the party members in hierarchical order, and then the great mass of anonymous followers, servants and workers in perpetuity, and beneath them again all the conquered foreign races, the modern slaves. And over and above all these will reign a new and exalted nobility of whom I cannot speak. But of all these plans the militant members will know nothing. The new man is living amongst us now! He is here. Isn’t that enough for you? I will tell you a secret. I have seen the new man. He is intrepid and cruel. I was afraid of him” – Adolf Hitler

Early Occult Influences

As per Gustl Kubizek a Childhood friend of Hitler, at the age of 15 after listening to Wagner’s Rienzie play , a bizarre occult force possessed the young Adolph. A powerful voice began emanating from Hitler’. This voice began spewing forth visions of how Hitler was going to change history, he would one day receive a Mandate from the people to lead them “from servitude to the heights of freedom, a special mission which would one day be entrusted to him.”

In the following decade the young Hitler while struggling to eek out an existence in Vienna undertook a intense study of the Occult . He claimed in Mein Kampf, that these had been ” the most vital years of his life in which he learned all he needed to know to lead the Nazi Party.”

During this period he developed one of his many obsessions, in particular with a relic in the Hapsburg museum in Vienna ” The Spear of Destiny ” {1912} As per legend, possession of the Spear possessed incredible occult power and would bring its owner the power to conquer the world, but losing it would bring immediate death. Occultists subscribe great power to this Spear of Destiny, also known as the Spear of Longinus.

The relic had been owned by a succession of powerful European rulers down through the centuries and eventually came to be in the possession of the Hapsburg Dynasty. Hitler is purported to have stated that the first time he saw the Spear he had witnessed extraordinary visions of his own destiny unfolding before him.

“The Spear appeared to be some sort of magical medium of revelation for it brought the world of ideas into such close and living perspective that human imagination became more real than the world of sense. I felt as though I, myself, had held it in my hands before in some earlier century of history — that I, myself, had once claimed it as my talisman of power and held the destiny of the world in my hands. Yet, how could this be possible? What sort of madness was this that was invading my mind and creating such turmoil in my breast?” – Hitler

The first sign of the spears power was the purported healing of Gaius Cassius’s failing eyesight by blood from the wound he created in Christ’s side with the spear. The centurion allegedly later become a convert to Christianity. The Spear subsequently passed through a multitude of hands, coming into the possession of many of Europe’s most important political and military leaders, including Constantine I, Frankish general Charles Martel used the spear in battle , Charlemagne, Frederick of Barbarossa, Frederick II. A leader who possessed the Spear was said to be invincible; Charlemagne { He lived and slept within reach of the spear, and attributed 47 battle victories to its powers}. and Frederick of Barbarossa were undefeated in battle until they let the Spear fall from their hands. Napoleon attempted to take it following the Battle of Austerlitz. Unfortunately for him, it had already been smuggled into Vienna from Nuremberg just prior to the battle, and he never obtained it. A legend arose that whoever claimed the Spear “holds the destiny of the world in his hands for good or evil.”

On 12th March 1938, the day Hitler annexed Austria, His first action was to go directly to the Hofmuseum and take possession of the Spear which he immediately sent to Nuremberg, the spiritual capital of Nazi Germany. At that point, Hitler believed he possessed incredible powers , and there was no stopping him. World War II was inevitable. Nuremberg was eventually captured by Allied troops the vault was subsequently discovered by American Army officers. The spear was confiscated by American forces on the afternoon of April 30, 1945, less than two hours before Hitler’s suicide in his underground bunker in Berlin. Like the Spear’s previous owners, Hitler perished after the relic was taken from him. There are rumors that the spear returned to Vienna is not the same spear that Hitler took, the Spear may have been counterfeited by General Patton, and the actual spear may be in US possession.

Not long after being awarded the Iron Cross in the first World War, Hitler was blinded in a mustard gas attack. He was taken to a military hospital in northern Germany where he was diagnosed as suffering from ‘psychopathic hysteria’. and was consequently placed under the care of Dr. Edmund Forster a psychiatrist. Whatever was done to Hitler under Dr. Forster’s care will never be certain due to the fact that in 1933 the Gestapo seized all psychiatric records related to Hitler’s treatment and destroyed them. Forster ‘committed suicide’ the same year – the official cause was listed as suicide.

“The mystery of what was done to Hitler at Pasewalk military hospital is accentuated by some of Hitler’s own statements. According to Hitler, he experienced a ‘vision’ from ‘another world’ while at the hospital. In that vision, Hitler was told that he would need to restore his sight so that he could lead Germany back to glory.

Psychohistorian Dr. Rudolph Binion suggests that Hitler’s visions may have been deliberately induced , as a means of helping Hitler recover from his blindness which was thought to be ‘psychopathic hysteria’. Dr. Binion cites a book completed in 1939 entitled, Der Augenzeuge (‘The Eyewitness’), written by a Jewish doctor Ernst Weiss who fled Germany in 1933.

“It is a thinly fictionalized account of Hitler’s “miracle cure”. – William Bramley, The God of Eden

(Hitler’s fiery words and brilliant blue eyes mesmerized audiences, however Hitler was born with Brown eyes – It is believed that his eyes were transformed to blue by the Mustard Gas .)

The Holy Grail

Hitler devoted much effort in pursuit of the legendary Holy Grail. The Holy Grail is supposedly the cup or dish used by Jesus at the Last Supper, preserved by Joseph of Arimathea, who brought it to Europe. In occult terms, The Holy Grail represented a path to transcendent consciousness.

“For centuries, knights, poets, and mystics have searched for a magical vessel called The Holy Grail, the cup Jesus drank from at the last supper. Is it possible this sacred relic has survived as a hidden treasure or could it be one of the ancient vessels displayed in museums throughout the world? Some believe that The Grail is a pathway to higher consciousness and unearthly power. Other proponents insist that The Grail is a symbol of a direct line of descent from Jesus… that to this day his descendants walk among us”

Quest for the Holy Grail

The Ark of the Covenant is famous today as the central object of “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.” which tells of a hero’s attempt to prevent the Ark from falling into the hands of the Nazis, who would harness its power to further their evil agenda. In actuality there is no direct evidence of Hitler, or any of the Nazis having had any interest in the Ark. It is believed by some that the Ark of the covenant is actually in Ethiopia. The son of Queen of Sheba and King Solomon is said to have stolen it. Ethiopian Christians claim that the Ark of the covenant is still in their cathedral in the Church of Saint Mary of Zion in Aksum.

Dietrich Eckart

During the same time frame that Hitler developed his obsession with the Spear of Destiny he also became acquainted with, and taken under the wings of Dietrich Eckart, his spiritual mentor and father figure.

It is beleived that Eckart initiated Hitler in the Thule Society, a Satanic organization cloaked in the guise of Nationalism. However , there is no proof that Hitler was ever actually a member of this society, and there is contradictory evidence as to whether he ever attended any meetings, but their influence and support of him is undeniable, for instance the Thule Society motto was “Halte dein Blut rein!” (“Keep your blood pure!”) and their emblem was/is the swastika and a dagger.

Eckart is said to have told his adherents prior to the 1920’s that;

“He had personally received a satanic annunciation that he was destined to prepare the the Anti-Christ, the man inspired by Lucifer to conquer the world and lead the Aryan race to glory.” Eckart perceived his role to be that of a forerunner, a John the Baptist to the Hitler the Occult Messiah.

Eckhart died in 1923 of Heart Attack induced by a Morphine addiction, On his deathbed Eckart Said

‘Follow Hitler ! He will dance, but it is I who have called the tune !’
‘I have initiated him into the ‘Secret Doctrine’,
Opened his centers in vision and given him the means to communicate with the Powers.’
‘Do not mourn for me: I shall have influenced history more than any other German.’

The Powers that Eckart communicated with, and initiated Hitler into represent a pact and Guidance from the forces of Fallen Angels … Satanic powers. Hitler’s aide Hermann Rauschning in his book …Conversations With Hitler describes a trance that Hitler entered when he spoke during rallies. He describes Hitler as a medium for spirits and said that he was possessed by them.

“One cannot help thinking of him as medium. For most of the time, mediums are ordinary, insignificant people. Suddenly, they are endowed with what seems to be supernatural powers, which sets them apart from the rest of humanity. The medium is possessed. Once the crisis is passed, they fall back again into mediocrity. It was in this way, beyond any doubt, that Hitler was possessed by forces outside of himself – almost demonical forces of which the individual man Hitler was only a temporary vehicle. The mixture of the banal and the supernatural created that insupportable duality of which power was conscious in his presence … It was like looking at a bizarre face whose expression seemed to reflect an unbalanced state of mind coupled with a disquieting impression of hidden powers.”

Heinrich Himmler

Possibly the most powerful figure in the Third Reich after Hitler, Himmler – son of a Roman Catholic teacher and originally a devout Catholic. Saw the men in his army as the reincarnation of Teutonic knights and kings, in particular the knights of King Arthur’s round table. He modeled the Nazi castle in Wewelsburg after the legend of King Arthur. Underneath the roundtable was a small room called the ‘realm of the dead’, where various occult rituals were performed. It was in the actual roundtable room where Himmler and his followers conducted occult rituals such as communicating with dead ancestors and Teutonic knights of the past.

The SS was also the ideological vanguard of the new religion, and the instrument through which the Aryan people would be indoctrinated into it.

Himmler established festivals on the Summer and Winter Solstices incorporating elements of ancient pagan rituals such as sun and nature worship. These celebrations were always characterized by a strong SS presence.

— Himmler commissioned His personal occult advisor Karl Maria Wiligut , {sometimes known as “Himmler’s Rasputin. See The Secret King: Karl Maria Wiligut, Himmler’s Lord of the Runes”} ,to write private reports on Runes, ancient and esoteric Germanic traditions, and prehistory.

After the First World War Wiligut performed as a Neopagan and claimed to be the last of a line of sorcerers called the Ueiskuinigsto and to have a clairvoyant recollection of the early Germanic history .

He met Himmler In 1933 and was appointed to the “SS Race and Settlement Main Department”. He designed the “Totenkopf” ring, which Himmler personally awarded to prestigious SS officers. Himmler chose Wewelsburg to be the ritual headquarters of the SS based on the advice of Wiligut.

Wiligut claimed to be an adherent of what he called “Irmin-Kristianity.” which endorsed Lanz’s belief in an Aryan Jesus.

The Concept of an Aryan Race.

The Aryan race is an idea that derived out of the fact that the languages of Most North European and Indian peoples are derived from a long lost common root language. 19th century ethnologists hypothesized that Northern European peoples originated from an ancient people called the Aryans, a name derived from the Sanskrit word Arya, which means ‘noble person’. This idea arose when linguists identified these two closely related languages as the earliest known ancestors of all the major European languages, including Latin, Greek, Germanic and Celtic.

The Ahnenerbe, {See; War-time activities of the SS-Ahnenerbe } an arm of the SS commissioned in the mid-1930s to research the ancestral heritage of the Aryan race, roamed the Earth in a quest to find proof that the Aryan race was destined to rule the world and that the Nazi vision of purification and world domination was supported by Occult mystic forces. Their task was to provide scientific documentation to support Nazi dogma.

Persians at one time called themselves Aryans. Darius the Great, a Persian king (521 – 486 BC), in an inscription proclaims: “I am Darius, the Great King, …, A Persian, son of a Persian, an Aryan, having Aryan lineage”. However, it is quite probable that the term Aryan used here is in reference to a noble or Royal lineage, not racial.

[Darius III 380 BC – 330 BC ,a Descendant of Darius the Great in a letter to Alexander the Great wrote ” I, Darius, king of kings and of the race of the gods, consort of Mithra on his throne and co-partner with the Sun, in my own right divine do give these injunctions and commands to thee my servant Alexander… “]

Darius the Great (521 – 486 BC) is mentioned in the Old testament many times, as a king of Persia, and is a descendant of Cyrus.

Ezra 4
24 Thus the work on the house of God in Jerusalem came to a standstill until the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.
“Then King Cyrus gave them to a man named Sheshbazzar, whom he had appointed governor, 15 and he told him, ‘Take these articles and go and deposit them in the temple in Jerusalem. And rebuild the house of God on its site.’ 16 So this Sheshbazzar came and laid the foundations of the house of God in Jerusalem. From that day to the present it has been under construction but is not yet finished.”

Ezra 5

2 Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel and Jeshua son of Jozadak set to work to rebuild the house of God in Jerusalem. And the prophets of God were with them, helping them. … 4 They also asked, “What are the names of the men constructing this building?” 5 But the eye of their God was watching over the elders of the Jews, and they were not stopped until a report could go to Darius and his written reply be received.
6 This is a copy of the letter …

To King Darius: Cordial greetings.

17 Now if it pleases the king, let a search be made in the royal archives of Babylon to see if King Cyrus did in fact issue a decree to rebuild this house of God in Jerusalem. Then let the king send us his decision in this matter.

…..”We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and we are rebuilding the temple that was built many years ago, one that a great king of Israel built and finished. 12 But because our fathers angered the God of heaven, he handed them over to Nebuchadnezzar the Chaldean, king of Babylon, who destroyed this temple and deported the people to Babylon. …..
13 “However, in the first year of Cyrus king of Babylon, King Cyrus issued a decree to rebuild this house of God. 14 He even removed from the temple of Babylon the gold and silver articles of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple in Jerusalem

….. let a search be made in the royal archives of Babylon to see if King Cyrus did in fact issue a decree to rebuild this house of God in Jerusalem

The Decree of Darius

1 King Darius then issued an order, and they searched in the archives stored in the treasury at Babylon. 2 A scroll was found in the citadel of Ecbatana in the province of Media, and this was written on it:

Memorandum:

3 In the first year of King Cyrus, the king issued a decree concerning the temple of God in Jerusalem: ..Let the temple be rebuilt as a place to present sacrifices, and let its foundations be laid…..

16 Then the people of Israel-the priests, the Levites and the rest of the exiles-celebrated the dedication of the house of God with joy……

So, in actuality, The Aryans of the Bible in context of the above excerpts do not appear to be an Enemy or Adversary of the Jews to which Hitler Claims to trace his version of Aryan -Lineage. Digging further into this Story , you will see that it is relative to the Story of the Battle of Armageddon.. {Not the symbolic one, but the real one that took place Centuries ago between Egyptians and Israelites in defense of and in Alliance with these Aryans Hitler claims to represent}

Aryan Theologian Houston Stewart Chamberlain Lamented the actions of the Aryan king and what he considered the disgrace of Christian Europe for preserving ancient Judaic books {Primarily Ezekiel} and the law of Moses, Chamberlain wrote:

“Under the protection of Aryan tolerance the hearth was erected from which, for tens of centuries a curse to all that is noblest and an everlasting disgrace to Christianity, Semitic intolerance was to spread like a poison over the whole earth.”

Some German researchers argued that the Aryans originated in ancient Germany or Scandinavia, and branched out from there, into India and the middle and near East. Hitler twisted these theories to fit his needs and developed the Doctrine of Aryan superiority which was used as justification for some of his actions. Whether he and his inner Circle believed this Doctrine in it’s entirety or not is questionable.

Hitler’s’ suicide, if it really was a suicide, was on April 30 it was the eve of Beltane (known in Germany as Walpurgisnacht), identified by Wiccans as a Druid feast in honor of the deity Bel, believed by some to be identical to the Canaanite Baal of the Bible. In witchcraft, this “power-point” day is regarded as a “great sabbat” equal in potency to Occultists with Halloween. It is also believed to be in imitation of Christ being crucified on the eve of Passover.

The Swastika And Occult Symbols of Nazism and Hitler

The word “swastika” is a derivative of the word “svastika” from ancient Sanskrit language of India. Which means “well-being.”

The swastika, an ancient symbol that can be traced back thousands of years. was commonly used as far back as 1000 BC. Referred to by different names in different societies In China it was wan , In Germany it was at one time called the Hakenkreuz , In Greece the gammadion, In the British Isles the fylfot and represented Obedience or Submission, and Brigantes of Ancient Britain used it as a symbol of the goddess Bride. In India it was actually called the Svastika. Swastikas can be found in the catacombs in Rome as well as ancient Jewish synagogues next to the star of David. During World War I, the swastika was found on the shoulder patches of the American 45th Division and well into untraceable history. American Indians used the Swastika as a decorative as well as symbolic adornment. The swastika used by Amerindians was actually called the Wheel of Life, which turned in a clockwise direction. The Nazi swastika deliberately reversed the ancient symbol of power so that it turned counterclockwise denoting a “black magic” orientation in direct contradiction of the right handed wheel of life swastika.

It should be noted however that all the cultures used the right handed swastika a right-handed swastika, traditionally is symbol of good fortune, and the triumph of spirit over materialism. As per Francis King in Satan and Swastika in early 1920 various designs for National Socialist flags were submitted to Hitler: The one finally adopted .. by Dr. Friedrich Krohn, a dentist from Sternbergwas the swastika on a white disk against a red background, But Krohn’s flag featured a right-handed swastika, the traditional symbol of good fortune, spiritual evaluation and the triumph of spirit over materialism. Hitler insisted on it being replaced by the left-handed swastika, regarded by occultists as the equivalent of a reversed crucifix, an evocation of evil, spiritual devolution and black magic!

Holocaust

“The mightiest counterpart to the Aryan is represented by the Jew.” -Hitler

To say Hitler was not fond of Jews would be an obviously gross understatement . His intense hatred of the Jews went far beyond any sane Human explanation And was incorporated into the Nazi Occult religon.

As per the National Socialist Religion the presence of the Jew in the World it appears, stood in direct opposition to their Satanic agenda. Satan’s primary Agenda is to thwart the master plan of the God of Abraham. In the personage of Adolph Hitler and his followers The Fallen Angel carried out the Holocaust .Anyone and Everyone with a remnant of Jewish Blood was rounded up– Loyal Nazi’s who were found to have Jewish ancestors generations ago, that they were unaware of were rounded up and sent to the Death Camps.

Magical powers, which we 21st Century ‘scientifically and intellectually enlightened’ Humans scoff at , were at work here.

“……Genocide was the magical act whereby the history of the world would forever be transformed, even if Germany did not survive. The elimination of the Jews, and with them their culture and religion, would leave a vacuum for the ascendance of the demonic powers controlled by or controlling the Third Reich….” and “The whole Nazi ethos grew out of a magical view of the world,..the history of Nazi Germany was forged by strange fanatics whose actions can only be explained in occult terms.” White Magic Occult author N. Pennick

The Satanic Agenda at this point in history was the annihilation of the Hebrew bloodline. In Germany and the occupied countries …A Jewish ancestor four to Five Generations back … You wore the Yellow Star the same as those who wore the yarmulke, whether you were practicing Judaism or not.

Current Popular History tends to neglect the fact that the Jews were only one of the many groups targeted by the Nazi High Priests.

Gypsies

Up to 600,000 were exterminated. It was never the official Nazi policy to completely exterminate the Gypsies . There is some evidence that prior to 1942, Himmler favored sparing a couple of gypsy tribes which had been defined as “pure gypsies.” However, by December, 1942, he ordered all gypsies in Germany deported to Auschwitz. Gypsies are not specifically mentioned in the The Nazi “Nuremberg Laws on Citizenship and Race” as non-Aryan, by 1937, those statutes were extended to include them and to define them as incompatible with Aryan blood. The deportation of Gypsies was placed under Himmler’s authority in 1942 and he ordered their extermination. Many were simply shot by SS Einsatzgruppen in their villages, others were “deported” a to Auschwitz or Treblinka.

The Nazi Persecution of the Gypsies

An estimated 2,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses died in concentration camps, where they were held for ideological reasons. They refused involvement in politics, would not say “Heil Hitler”, and would not serve in the German army

Persecution and Resistance of Jehovah’s Witnesses During the Nazi Regime: 1933-1945

Several hundred thousand mentally and physically disabled were exterminated. The Nazis believed that the disabled were a burden as they needed to be cared for by others, and were also considered an affront to the grand Nazi agenda of a society peopled by a superhuman Aryan race. Almost half a Million people having mental deficiencies or illnesses deemed to be hereditary in nature were sterilized against their will .

Demographics determined the early Military Strategy of the Nazi’s

One substantial reason for the Nazi’s initial success in their assault on Russia was their unpredictability, they did not follow a sane military strategy, their strategy in a large part was dictated by Population demographics as dictated by “Racial Studies of the German People” by Hans F.A. Gunther. Hitler made much use of this occult book, which had an appendix showing the geographic distribution of the Jewish population throughout Europe, including Western Russia. This book for the large part determined where he was going to attack, and in what order.

The conquest of territory although vital was secondary to the annihilation of as many Jews as possible. Satan worked through Hitler in an attempt to remove the Jewish race from the face of the earth.

Hitler and the Nazis are estimated to have killed two-thirds of Jews worldwide.

The Final outcome of all the efforts of the Right Hand of Satan to eliminate the Jewish Race only resulted in a strengthened Hebrew Nation, and was the primary catalyst for the return to their Promised Land, The actions of the State of Israel thereafter are another matter.

As The God of Abraham had promised , the Diaspora {Dispersion of the Jewish People throughout the World} would not be eternal. …Shalom .. Next Year in Jerusalem.

This can be considered an incredible parallel to the Christian Holocaust / Persecution at the hands of a Satanic forebear of Hitler— Nero. The outcome of the unprecedented Roman onslaught against the Christians was the rise of Christianity throughout the Roman Empire. The onslaught of Satanism on Judaism can resulted in the Jews return to Palestine and the restablishment of the State of Israel.

The eventual and natural Failure of National Socialism created a huge vacuum of power the World, a void filled largely by The Evil Counterpart and adversary of Hitler at the time. Stalin .

The Future as Proposed by Hitler

Adolph was to replace Jesus as the object of adoration for the Masses that survived the Ethnic purges anticipated, eventually only the descendants of the SS would survive to inhabit the World. All “inferior” and competing gene pools would be either eliminated through selective breeding, or exterminated. The first steps enroute to this end was the conquest of “growing room” and the elimination of “The mightiest counterpart to the Aryan”

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side’, I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community'” Hitler 1933
Czechoslovakia

German policies varied depending on the area of Czechoslovakia (the Sudetenland, Bohemia and Moravia, and Slovakia). Many Czechs were forcibly removed from the Sudetenland area and reduced to Slave Laborers. The same for other non-Germanic peoples.

Poland

The Nazi’s set out to eliminate the Polish elite and reduce the rest of the country to a population of slave laborers. It is estimated that a quarter of the population of Poland perished during the German occupation. Himmler had assigned the Main Office for the Consolidation of German Nationhood (SS-RKF) the task of preparing a plan for Germanizing Poland. The idea was to turn these areas into pure Germanic provinces.

Baltic States

Basically suffered the same fate as Poland, it had not reached the intensity of Poland , possibly due to the Nazi’s pre-occupation with fighting the Russians. Had the Russians fallen , it’s safe to say there probably wouldn’t be many Estonians, Latvians or Lithuanians around today.

As far as the remainder of Eastern Europe was concerned, the details had already been planned before the attack on Poland. However, they were modified and revised until finally, at the beginning of 1940, there emerged the Generalplan Ost {“The General Plan for the East”}

The Plan called for the gradual Germanizing of Eastern Europe for settlement by Germans and eventual absorption into the Thousand-Year Reich. This area covered territory to the Black Sea and the Crimea in the south. The Thousand-Year Reich was thus to absorb the whole of Poland, Czechoslovakia, the Baltic countries and a huge chunk of the Soviet Union – These areas were to be “Germanized” before being incorporated into the Reich.

The God Makers

The God Makers is a book and film highlighting the inner workings and perceived negative aspects of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The book and film was co-authored by Ed Decker and Dave Hunt.

The film, produced by Jeremiah Films in 1982, takes a highly critical view of the LDS Church, its practices, and its teachings. The film is an exposé of the Church’s secrets, which has been controversial among church members and non-members since its release, provoking passionate debates about its veracity and message.

The God Makers was first shown to a group of 4,000 evangelical Christians on December 31, 1982, at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

Introduction and setting

The film depicts a meeting between Ed Decker and Dick Baer with two actors who portray Los Angeles attorneys.

The film states that Decker and Baer are there to consult “with a Los Angeles-based law firm about filing a class action lawsuit” against the LDS Church. Decker states that the church is a massive, multi-billion dollar corporation which shatters the lives of families and has ties into Satanism and the occult. Much of the dialogue occurs between Decker, Baer and the two actor/lawyers, in addition to interview segments with various other people interspersed throughout the film.

Temples

Dr. Harold Goodman, who is introduced as a BYU professor, former Mormon bishop, and current LDS mission president, provides quotes at various points throughout the film. Goodman states that the church is very family centered, and notes the importance of temple attendance and marriage to Latter-day Saints.

The film’s narrator adds that the temple is used for “only secret ceremonies which are reserved for an elite few,” and that temple attendance is required in order that “the worthy Mormon can become a god himself in the life hereafter, ruling over his own planet, with a number of goddess wives.” It is claimed that temple open houses are the only opportunity some members will ever have to enter the temple, which is inaccurate, as all Mormons are invited to the temple if they live according to the basic tenets of the faith.

Many gods

Baer states that members of the LDS Church believe that there are “billions of these highly evolved humanoids” in space ruling their own planets. A woman is interviewed who said that her goal as a Mormon was to be “eternally pregnant”. One of the actor/lawyers states that he finds it difficult to believe that the Mormon attorneys and judges that he associates with expect to become “infinite gods” and populate planets through “celestial sex” with their “goddess wives”. He further states that he would be embarrassed to ask them about this. Decker responds that the Mormons are so embarrassed by it that they themselves don’t even talk about it. Floyd McElveen, who is introduced as author of the bestseller, The Mormon Illusion, states that “their whole doctrine flows from this about becoming gods”.

Animated segment

Decker and Baer run an animated film that is claimed to illustrate the differences between Mormonism and Christianity. The animation depicts God the Father living on a planet called Kolob with his many identical, blonde “goddess wives” who are taking care of “spirit children” produced through endless celestial sex.

A plan is presented to create and populate the Earth, and all of the spirits in attendance vote on the matter. One third of the spirits follow Lucifer’s plan and are denied physical bodies. Those that are “neutral” are born with black skin. Those who were valiant were to be lighter skinned and born into Mormon families on planet earth.

The narrator states that thousands of years later, God the Father journeyed to earth “from the Starbase Kolob”, to have sex with the virgin Mary, in order to provide Jesus with a physical body. It is also stated that Jesus Christ, who is now referred to as the “Mormon Jesus”, had a number of children through multiple wives. The narrator states that Joseph Smith Jr. claimed to be a direct descendant of Jesus Christ.

The animation portrays a brief history of the events described in the Book of Mormon. The narrator states that the Book of Mormon was recovered by “a young treasure seeker named Joseph Smith, who was known for his tall tales in upstate New York.” The narrator states that the Mormons thank God for Joseph Smith and that Smith will sit in final judgment over them, along with God the Father and the Mormon Jesus. The film depicts Smith sitting in the center position with God the Father and the Mormon Jesus to either side during the judgment process. It is stated that Joseph Smith shed his blood for us, so that we too may become gods. Upon viewing the animation, one of the actor/lawyers comments that it sounds like something from von Däniken or Battlestar Galactica.

Parts of the animated segment were featured in Bill Maher’s religious documentary Religulous, due to the segment being posted on various video-sharing websites.

Divorce and suicide

The film states that the church pressures couples to divorce if they cannot endure the pressure of living up to the church standards. Decker states that his five children were pulled away from him by the Mormon church. Baer states that his wife had to divorce him and find another man who was “working his way to godhood”.

It is also stated the Mormon women are under such constant pressure to be perfect that they are chronically depressed. The father and brother of a young suicide victim named Kip Eliason are interviewed. The family relates how Kip could not live up to the pressure of finding that his sexual orientation placed him at odds with the teachings of the church.

The narrator states that Mormons used Christian terminology when speaking with nonmembers of the LDS Church, using words such as “God”, “Jesus”, and “salvation” to deceive potential converts.

Changing scriptures

Decker states that the Mormon church keeps changing its scriptures, but that Christian scholars are “always refining, always going back to the earliest manuscripts to improve and validate the authenticity of the holy scripture”. He later states that “scripture is not to be tested”.

Sandra Tanner is introduced as one of the greatest living authorities on Mormonism. Tanner states that Mormon leaders have deliberately kept members from their true history. Tanner discusses the various accounts written by Joseph Smith of the First Vision, and suggests that this implies that he didn’t actually witness this event despite the fact that eye-witness accounts are generally considered false if the account does not vary after multiple retellings.

Baer states that Joseph Smith claimed that the moon was inhabited, and that Brigham Young stated that the sun was inhabited as well.

Tanner and Decker discuss polygamy at some length. Tanner suggests that the Church has hidden documents that are not available to the public. She states that most members and missionaries are unaware of the deception and that the typical missionary “doesn’t even realize he couldn’t go to Salt Lake and see these documents for himself”.

Book of Mormon and Book of Abraham

Dr. Charles Crane is introduced as an author, college professor, and expert on Mormon archaeology, while Dr. Richard Phales is introduced as an author, lecturer, and archaeologist. Crane states that he has looked over maps and checked archaeological information, and that he cannot locate the land of Zarahemla. Phales adds that “we have never excavated one single artifact” related to the Book of Mormon. The narrator further states that archaeology has been able to prove the existence of all great civilizations. Coins are used as an example, and Crane mentions what he states are coins listed in the Book of Mormon. Crane concludes that the Book of Mormon is a fairy tale, much like Alice in Wonderland. Decker adds that the church is converting people by claiming that archaeology has proven the Book of Mormon to be true.

Interestingly, the Smithsonian Institution also seems to assert the same thing. It predicates that the Book of Mormon is not supported by Smithsonian Institution’s archaeological research, and states, “The Smithsonian Institution has never used the Book of Mormon in any way as a scientific guide. Smithsonian archaeologists see no direct connection between the archaeology of the New World and the subject matter of the [Book of Mormon].

Crane also mentions the Book of Abraham, stating that it was translated from fragments of papyrus that Joseph Smith purchased from an Egyptologist, and that the manuscript resurfaced in 1967 and was found by several famous Egyptologists to have nothing to do with Abraham. Crane adds that Smith took “one little letter” that “looks like a backward ‘e'”, and produced from it 76 words.

Temple rituals

A reenactment of temple rituals is shown, which are said to be performed for the purpose of “evangelizing the dead”. The narrator states that without these rituals, “no one can enter the presence of Joseph Smith and become a god”. The narrator states that Mormons are encouraged to contact the dead and that it is common for demons to appear to Mormons asking them to perform family history work for them. Several people discuss temple garment, or “holy Mormon underwear”, and several stories are told of people who refused to remove this underwear under any circumstances, including bathing and giving birth.

Occult

Baer states that Joseph Smith was arrested and convicted for pretending to find buried treasure using a seer stone. Decker produces what he refers to as a Satanic Bible, in which the word “Mormo” is said to represent the “king of ghouls”, and whose followers are called Mormons. Baer also claims that in Chinese, the word Mormon means “gates of hell”.

The term “Mormon” is a nickname given to the Latter-day Saint community and based on the name of one of the central spiritual texts of the religion, the Book of Mormon It is a phrase used in the LDS Church’s “I’m a Mormon” campaign to describe the church’s members. Some members of the LDS Church officially refer to themselves Latter-day Saints.

Economic power

The economic power of the LDS Church is discussed. A man introduced as “Doctor John L. Smith, author and expert on the vast wealth of the Mormon church”, states that the Mormon Church is the second largest financial institution west of the Mississippi and that it is difficult to determine what the church actually owns. The narrator adds that the church has “vast land holdings”, and that billions of dollars are extracted from church members through a mandatory tithing program. The church is also said to own a substantial portion of the state of Hawaii.

Conclusion

The film concludes with the two actors playing lawyers stating that they cannot take the case, because they don’t believe that a jury will believe them. They state that the Mormon church has “billions” with which to fight the case and that it would take years. Kip Eliason’s father reads a letter that his son left him before he committed suicide, after which a woman is asked by an interviewer what she would miss the most if she left the church. The woman replies that she would “rather be dead” than leave.

Controversy over the film

The film created considerable controversy in some of the communities in which it has been shown, and was described by Truman G. Madsen, LDS professor of religion and philosophy, as “religious pornography”. The negative reaction came from both Mormons and non-Mormons.

The Anti-Defamation League of the B’nai B’rith publicly presented their concerns of the film which they described as “Mormon bashing” and “invidious and defamatory”. Rhonda M. Abrams, Regional Director stated the following:

I sincerely hope that people of all faiths will similarly repudiate The God Makers as defamatory and untrue, and recognize it for what it truly represents — a challenge to the religious liberty of all.

It was noted by LDS scholars that the film portrays Mormonism as a cult far removed from mainstream Christianity, and that many statements that are represented as Mormon doctrine are not actual doctrine, with a particular emphasis on “those ideas which would seem most anomalous to Christians”. In particular, the repeated references to endless celestial sex are viewed as absurd and profane.

LDS respondents claim that the film portrays all Mormons as either part of a conspiracy to cover up information or as being deluded by their leaders.

Criticism from the National Conference of Christians and Jews

Max Jennings, editor of the National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ), attended a showing in Mesa, Arizona that was sponsored by a group known as Concerned Christians, whose purpose was “to reach out in love to those lost in Mormonism”. Jennings reported that “If what I saw Tuesday night is love, I must have had the wrong Sunday School lessons back in that dusty, west Texas Methodist Church of my childhood. I didn’t hear anyone reaching out in love Tuesday night. I heard people reaching out in hatred of another’s right to believe what he wants.”

The NCCJ committee sent a letter to Concerned Christians on December 5, 1983 which stated, among other things, that

The film does not fairly portray the Mormon Church, Mormon history, or Mormon belief. It makes extensive use of half-truths, faulty generalizations, sensationalism, and is not reflective of the true spirit of Mormon faith. We find particularly offensive the emphasis that Mormonism is some sort of subversive plot — a danger to the community, a threat to the institution of marriage, and destructive to the mental health of teenagers. We are of the opinion that the film relies heavily on appeals to fear, prejudice and unworthy human emotions.

The film’s creator has criticized the NCCJ for allegedly failing to contact Jeremiah Films, which produced The God Makers for the purpose of elucidating claimed errors and prevarications in the film.

Effects of the film

In January 1990, Decker claimed that the film had produced a three million person shortfall in projected converts to the church. This claim was based upon a statement made by Elder M. Russell Ballard at Brigham Young University on November 14, 1989. Ballard never mentioned a shortfall, but instead stated that the church continued to grow despite films such as The God Makers. Decker later retracted his claim.

The Controversy of the Occult Reich

One hundred years after Adolf Hitler’s birth near Linz in Austria on April 20 1889, and decades after his malign empire metastasized in Bavaria, the Hitler phenomenon remains to mainstream historians largely inexplicable, or at least unexplained. The man and his awful work seem to stand outside history looking in. Perhaps our human fear of the irrational is so great that we instinctively hold Hitler at a great remove in order that we need not admit him to our company.

In light of this it isn’t very surprising that an extensive literature exists seeking an occult rationale for the otherwise baffling catastrophe Hitler represents. As Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier point out in the MORNING OF THE MAGICIANS (1960), the Nazi era simply defies conventional analysis:

A self taught madman, surrounded by a handful of megalo-maniacs, rejects Descartes, spurns the whole humanist culture, tramples on reason, invokes Lucifer, conquers Europe, and nearly conquers the world… The historian begins to feel anxious and to wonder whether his art is viable.

Pauwels and Bergier were among the first postwar proponents of a black magical explanation for the Third Reich.1a About a quarter of their book is devoted to a region they call “The Absolute Elsewhere,” a neverland where Nazi pseudosciences and occult methodology held official sway. They quote a Hitlerian pronouncement to demonstrate that the Fuhrer’s intellectual development was on a level wholly different from that understood by the Western tradition: “there is a Nordic and National Socialist science which is opposed to Jewish-Liberal science”. Reality was defined by politics.

Nazi “science” has brought hoots of derision from those who hold to the Cartesian model. In place of psychology there was an occult frappe composed of the mysticism of Gurdijeff, the theosophy of Madame Blavatsky and the archetypes of Nordic mythology.3 In place of Newtonian physics stood the cosmic force called vril, the bizarre geology known as the hollow earth theory, and the frigid cosmology of Hans Horbiger’s Welteislehre, the doctrine of eternal ice.

Nazi thought excluded psychoanalysis, which has in fact been not very helpful in explaining the etiology of great evil, although Robert G.L. Waite’s effort, quoted above and published in 1977 by Basic Books, is good on several provocative subjects: Hitler’s sadomaso-chistic sex life; the possibility he had a Jewish grandfather; and his Viennese mentors, who are described at greater length by the authors about to be mentioned.

Nazism officially rejected the theory of relativity as “Jewish science”. Not only Freud but EInstein too was forced to flee Hitler’s Europe. He and other physicists eventually were able to ensure that atomic secrets remained in the hands of the allies until they could be used spectacularly to climax the Pacific war. (Note: The Germans WERE working on an atomic device, although their project was flawed in minor respects. Could their rejection of Einsteinian physics as “Jewish Science” have ensured their inevitable failure at devoloping a nuclear weapon? – Wol.)

Horbiger’s physics derived from an intuitive flash he experienced late in the nineteenth century. “… As a young engineer,” he wrote, “I was watching one day some molten steel poured on wet ground covered with snow: the ground exploded after some delay and with great violence.”

This conflict of opposites, of fire and ice, is a theme that inspired Horbiger and resonated for German nationalists because it recurs in the Icelandic Eddas, the sourcebooks of Teutonic mythology. It all makes good sense in Iceland, since that island’s peculiar geology feature numerous volcanic rifts in the permafrost; fire and ice are commonly juxtaposed all over the landscape. As grounds for a cosmology – the word implies universality – it is at best dubious. It would be a hard sell in Hawaii. Nevertheless, Nazi science was influential out of all proportionto its objective validity. Hoerbiger was immensely influential in the Third Reich. His followers numbered in the tens of thousands. There were scores of Horbigerian books, hundreds of Welteislehre pamphlets, and a monthly magazine called THE KEY TO WORLD EVENTS. As one tract put it,

Our Nordic ancestors grew strong amidst the ice and snow, and this is why a belief in a world of ice is the natural heritage of Nordic men. It was Austrian, Hitler, who drove out the Jewish politicians, and another Austrian, Horbiger, (who) will drive out the Jewish scientists. By his own example Hitler has shown that an amateur (can) give us a thorough understanding of the Universe.

Hitler’s fatal confidence in the success of his troops on the Russian front during the 1941 – 2 winter is generally believed to have been a result of his misplaced faith in Horbiger’s weather forecasts. Despite such setbacks, the Welteislehre managed to thrive even after the war. The popular speculations of Immanuel Velikovsky derive in part from Horbiger. In 1953 a survey conducted by Martin Gardner showed that more than a million people in Germany, England, and the U.S. believed that Horbiger was right.

The Horbigerian cosmology posited an early epoch, some fifteen million years ago, during which a hugh moon moved across the sky very near the earth. Its gravitational attraction gave rise to a race of our ancestors, the giants. These giants, which appear in the ancient Norse and Icelandic sagas, sleep, yet they are alive.

To the Nazis, they were Supermen. In one set of myths, contained in the Nibelungenlied, they lived beneath Teutonic mountains. In another they were prototype Aryans from the East, inhabiting VAST Tibetan caverns.

Three other books that investigate hidden influences (are) Gerald Suster’s HITLER: THE OCCULT MESSIAH; Jean-Michel Angebert’s THE OCCULT AND THE THIRD REICH; and Nicholas Goodrick- Clarke’s THE OCCULT ROOTS OF NAZISM7.

Suster’s book largely rehashes Pauwels and Bergier. Angebert (actually a pen name for two French writers) interestingly links Hitler to an ancient dualist tradition he traces from Manichaenism in Persia through the Essenes… to the Cathars in the south of France in the Middle Ages. It’s philosophy in which, in its Nazi incarnation, solar forces of light represented by blond, fair-skinned Aryans strive against the evil forces of darkness, who are of course dark skinned
Semites.

Both books, but especially Suster’s are written in prose that stops just this side of tabloid journalese. This is too bad for two reasons. One, the authors diminish some important material by this kind of presentation. Two, the lessons we haveto learn about mass psycho-pathology and about the history of fascism are too important to be trivalized in this way.

Goodrick-Clark’s is a serious and compelling historical look at ariosophy, a dangerous amalgam of Aryan racism, pan-German
nationalism, and occultism that flourished in Austria and Germany from around 1890 well into the era when Himmler’s Death’s Head SS was organized. Himmler is said by Pauwels and Bergier to have taken the JESUITS for his model, and to have installed a regular hierarchy ranging from lay brothers to father superior, and to have used this Black Order in horrific rites. (Note: This fact is also confirmed in Edmond Paris’ book THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE JESUITS, which also reveals that the Nazi S.S. was filled with members of the Jesuit Order, and thus suggesting to some that Rome was using the Nazi movement to carry out their own continuous ‘Inquisitions’ against the Jews and Protestants. Hitler by the way, as well as most of his staff, were avowed Roman Catholics. Roman Catholicism should come under criticism not so much for it’s spiritual aspects but for its political agendas, as should ANY religion that fails to separate church and state or uses the spiritual passions of the masses to push their oppressive or imperical political goals — whether they be Catholics, Masons, Islams, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Mormons, etc. Incident- ally Austria, during world war II, was 90 % Roman Catholic and 100 % Nazi… – Wol.)

THE OCCULT ROOTS OF NAZISM identifies wide circle of proto-Nazi
philosophers, previously almost unknown, who saw in the chaos that
beset Germany after the Treaty of Versailles the working out of ancient
Aryan prophecies. Among them was Rudolf John Gorsleben, whose inter-
esting career Goodrick-Clarke sums up in a sentence: “on the basis of
the runes, occultism, and the Edda, Gorsleben created an original racist
mystery-religion which illuminated the priceless magical heritage of the
Aryans and justified their spiritual and political world-supremacy.”9
Gorsleben was active in right-wing politics in Bavaria in the years Hitler
was forming his political convictions there, and he lectured to the Thule
Society, a Munich club thought to have greatly influenced Nazism in its
infancy (see below). He also edited a weekly newspaper called German
Freedom; in 1927 he changed the name to Aryan Freedom.

He derived the word ‘race’ from rata, an Old Norse term meaning
‘root’, in order to conclude that God and race were identical…. He main-
tained that racial mixing was always detrimental for the racially superior
partner, since his purity was debased in the progeny, and he repeated
the common volkisch [folkish] conviction that woman could be ‘impreg-
nated’ by intercourse, even when no conception occurred, so that her
subsequent offspring bore the characteristics of her first lover. Given
these overwhelming pressures towards the increasing bastardization
of the German descendants of the Aryan race, only the strict practice
of segregation and eugenics could guarantee the reversal of racial
contamination in the world.

Another book which holds that Hitler learned many of his occult
lesson from avatars in Vienna and Munich may well be the best known
black magical explanation of Nazism to have been put forth so far.
Trevor Ravenscroft’s THE SPEAR OF DESTINY was published by that
famous British house of occultism, the aptly named Neville Spearman
Ltd,.in 1972, and has since gone through many edition.

Ravenscroft is intriguing because instead of reporting historical influ-
ences on Hitler, he presents secret history in a narrative form that
purports to be factual and that — if true maybe even if only poetically
“true” — goes a long way toward finding a convincing occult explanation
for the Nazi phenomenon.

Two challenges to Ravenscroft’s facts, discussed below, have led
some readers to conclude his book is more nearly a novel than strict
history. Nonetheless, its provocative premise and fluent synthesis of
black magical thematics will keep it on occult booklists until a better
effort at explaining Hitler comes along.

Ravenscroft, a British journalist, historian, and World War II commando
officer, spent four years in Nazi prison camps after he was captured
attempting to assassinate General Erwin Rommel in North Africa in
1941. His personal perspective on the Hitler era is based on material
he says he got in a state of transcendent consciousness while im-
prisoned. He introduces his methodology by speaking of…

“my own experience of higher levels of consciousness
whilst in a Nazi Concentration Camp during the war, and
how the nature of this transcendent experience had guided
me to a study of the Spear of Longinus and the legend of
world destiny which had grown up around it.”12

Later, in London, his intuitive suspicions about certain grail relics
and their importance in occult Hitlerian history were confirmed by a
Viennese exile called Dr. Walter Johannes Stein who died in 1957.

Dr. Stein spent much of the war as a British secret agent, but before
that time he was a scholar who employed white magical means to
clairvoyantly investigate historical events. It was his book on the grail
mythos published in Stuttgart in 1928 and titled THE NINTH CENTURY:
WORLD HISTORY IN THE LIGHT OF THE HOLY GRAIL that
attracted Ravenscroft to him.

THE SPEAR OF DESTINY focuses first on Hitler’s lost years in
Vienna from 1909 to 1913. During that time, Ravenscroft writes, Dr.
Stein was pursuing his occult researches as a student at the University
of Vienna and getting to know Hitler, then a dropout living in a flophouse.
Vienna was during Hitler’s years there a vortex of modern thinking.
Freud was in practice at Berggasse. 19; Ludwig Wittgenstein was in
residence pondering avant garde philosophy and metaphysics; Gustav
Mahler had returned home to die and to name his protege, Arnold
Schonberg. In contrast there persisted the deep anti-Semitic currents
that had caused Mahler to convert to [Roman] Catholicism, that forced
Freud eventually to flee to London and that informed the ancient pan-
German folkoric nostalgia espoused by Guido von List.

This old black magician, whose occult lodge Ravenscroft says
substituted the swastika for the cross in perversion and the practice
of medieval thaumaturgy, looked like a wizard in floppy cap and long
white beard. His link to Hitler was allegedly through an occult book-
seller, Ernst Pretzche, in whose shop the future Fuhrer found a second
home.

In the shop Dr. Stein found a copy of Wolfram von Eschenbach’s
PARZIVAL, the medieval grail romance that Dr. Stein was himself
researching for his work on the ninth century. In the book’s margins
were handwritten annotations; looking them over Dr.Stein was fasci-
nated and repelled:

“This was no ordinary commentary but the work of
somebody who had achieved more than a working
knowledge of the black arts! The unknown commentator
had found the key to unveiling many of the deepest
secrets of the Grail, yet obviously spurned the Christ-
tian ideals of the Knights and delighted in the devious
machinations of the Anti-Christ. It suddenly dawned
on him that he was reading the footnotes of SATAN!

Soon afterward, Dr.Stein and Hitler saw the Reich’s lance together
in the Imperial Museum at the Hofburg. Dr. Stein had been there before
and had never failed to be moved by the sight of the old relic, supposed
to have been moved by the original spear with which the Roman centurion,
Longinus, pierced the side of Christ during the crucifixation. Longinus was
a German, and his “spear of destiny” was fated to play a magical role in
the careers of German leaders like Charlemagne, Otto the Great, and
Frederick Barbarossa. Dr. Stein said the spear inspired in him the emotion
expressed in the motto of the knights of the holy grail: Durch Mitleid wissen,
“through compassion to self knowledge.”

Then he glanced at Hitler:

Walter Stein found he was not the only one moved by the sight of this
historic spearhead. Adolf Hitler stood beside him, like a man in a trance,
a man over whom some dreadful magic spell had been cast… The very
space around him seemed enlivened with some subtle irradiation, a kind
of ghostly ectoplasmic light. His whole physiognomy and stance appeared
transformed as if some might Spirit now inhabited his very soul, creating
within and around him a kind of evil transfiguration of its own nature and
power.

Latter Hitler took Dr. Stein up the Danube to visit his mystic teacher,
a rustic woodcutter and herbalist named Hans Lodz “who retained in his
peasant’s blood the last traces of the atavistic clairvoyance of the ancient
Germanic tribes” and who “resembled a mischievous yet malevolent dwarf
from the pages of Grimm’s Fairy Tales or an illustration from a book on
ancient Germanic folklore”.16 The men took a swim in the river at which
Dr. Stein noticed that Hitler had only one testicle.

It was Lodz, Dr.Stein learned, who had prepared for Hitler a peyote
concoction that afforded him psychedelic insight into his ‘past lives’.
The peyote itself had come from Pretzche, who had lived for a time in
the German colony in Mexico. Hitler had hoped that his former existences,
viewed in his drug trance, would include an early incarnation as a powerful
Teutonic ruler, but it was not to be.

Instead his psychedelic perception revealed non Eschenbach’s Parzival
to have been prophetic of events that would take place a thousand years
after it was written, i.e. in the present. And it showed Hitler to have been
the historical personage behind the evil sorcerer Klingsor, the very spirit
of the anti-Christ and the villain of Parzival.

According to Dr. Stein’s work, Klingsor was in fact Landulf II of Capua,
the traitorous confidant of the Holy Roman Emperor who betrayed Christ-
ianity to the Moslem invaders of Italy and Spain.

Armed with the knowledge of his black spiritual ancestry (or rather an
ancient personality that the ‘spirit’ possessing him desired to identify
him with? – Wol), Ravenscroft writes, Hitler moved to Germany, joined
the Bavarian Army, survived the hellish trench warfare on the western
front, won the Iron Cross, second class, and got discharged in Munich
where he encountered the men who were to invent National Socialism.
Virtually every study of Hitler’s time in Munich mentions the THULE
Society as superficially a kind of Elk’s Club of German mythology which
met often and openly at a fancy metropolitan hotel and for a time counted
Hitler as a member. Behind the scenes, however the society seems to
have been considerably more sinister.

Robert Payne whose excellent Hitler biography contains no occult
explanations, describes the Thule Society as the center of the right
wing opposition to the brief Bavarian postwar socialist coup under the
Jewish intellectual Kurt Eisner…

“The reaction set in swiftly, as the extreme right gathered
its forces. The headquarters of the reaction was the Hotel
Vierjahreszeiten, where several floors were given over to
the Thule Society, ostensibly a literary club devoted to
the study of Nordic culture but in fact a secret political
organization devoted to violent anti-Semitism and rule by
an aristocratic elite. The name of the organization derived
from ultima Thule, the unknown northern land believed to
be the original home of the German race… The symbol of
the Thule Society was a swastika with a dagger enclosed
in laurel leaves.17

Most of the occult historians of the era believe the Thule Society
operated on a deeper level still, a level headed by a mysterious figure
called Dietrich Eckart. Goodrick-Clarke calls Eckart Hitler’s MENTOR
in the early days of the Nazi Party, along with Rudolf Hess and Alfred
Rosenberg.

According to Ravenscroft, Eckart, like Hitler, first achieved transcen-
dence through psychedelic drugs. Research on peyote by the German
pharmacologist Ludwig Lewin had been published in 1886, leading to
widespread popular experimentation. Later a heroin addict, in earlier
days Eckart used peyote in the practice on neo-pagan magic in Berlin.
He came to believe that he, too was the reincarnation of ninth century
character. In his case it was Bernard of Barcelona, a notorious betrayer
of Christianity to the Arabs and a black magician who used thaumaturgy
to hold off Carolingian armies in Spain.

Eckart assertedly organized Kurt EIsner’s assassination and personally
chose Hitler — by then a battle-scarred veteran of the horrors of trench
warfare and a fervent critic of the armistice — to lead the Aryan race back
to supremacy.

Ravenscroft writes that Hitler had been prepared for satanic initiation
by his experiences in Vienna with peyote and with the spear and by his
mustard gassing in 1918, which left him blind and in a state of enforced
trance for several days.

He also says that the techniques Dietrich Eckart used were in part
derived from the sexual magic of Aleister Crowley. In 1912 this famed
British magician was named IX British head of a secret Berlin lodge
called Ordo Templi Orientis [O.T.O.] which practiced various forms of
sexual magic.

Ravenscroft writes “there can be little doubt” that both Crowley and
Eckart conducted deep studies of the Arabian astrological magic per-
formed by Klingsor’s real life counterpart, Landulf II. It was to Sicily —
then a Moslem stronghold — that Landulf fled after his traitorous links
to Islam were disclosed. And it was in a dark tower in the mountains
of the southwest corner of that island that his evil soul festered with
additional bitterness over his castration by the relatives of a noblewoman
he had raped. There he practiced sadistic satanism of a nature that
foreshadowed the horrors of Nazi concentration camps.

“If the legends that have come down from these dark centuries
of European history are true, these rituals carried out at Kalot
Enbolot included terrible tortures such as the slitting open of
the stomach of sacrificial victims and the slow drawing open of
the stomach of sacrificial victims and the slow drawing of their
entrails, the driving of stakes through the orifices of their bodies
before disembowelling them, and the invoking of Spirits of Dark-
ness (incubi) to rape young virgins kidnapped from their families.”

It was from his studies of the power available to practitioners of such
perversities that Eckart devised the rituals he used when he “opened the
centers of Adolf Hitler to give him a vision of and a means of communica-
tion with the Powers.” Ravenscroft concludes, though he declines to
furnish the full details: “Suffice it to say that they were indescribably
sadistic and ghastly.”

Having done his worst, Eckart soon died, proudly advising those
around him:

Follow Hitler! he will dance, but it is I who have called
the tune!

I have initiated him into the “Secret Doctrine”, opened
his centers of vision and given him the means to
communicate with the Powers.

Do not mourn for me: I shall have influenced history more
than any other German.

Not unnaturally the question rises whether any of THE SPEAR
OF DESTINY is true. It’s certainly a great story, one which Ravens-
croft elaborates with a lengthy investigation of Hitler’s sex life, in
which he makes a case for associating the reports of the Fuehrer’s
missing testis to the perversities resulting from Landulf’s castration.
The problem lies with Ravenscroft’s primary source, Dr. Walter
Johannes Stein. And the problem with Dr.Stein is really two problems:
one his method of historical research: and two, the fact that he is
dead and unable to speak for himself.

Given his method, of course, this second problem should not be
insurmountable. Had we the technique, Dr. Stein could presumably
verify each of Ravenscroft’s assertion for us from beyond the grave.
For Dr. Stein is alleged to have studied history not in the libraries
and archives that are the usual haunt of the historian but in an arena
called the Cosmic Chronicle (also known to adherants of the ‘Astral’
arts as the AKASHA records. – Wol.) where, according to Ravenscroft,
past present and future were united in a higher dimension of time.
What’s more, Ravenscroft reveals in his introduction, Dr.Stein taught
the same techniques to him.

It is, however, undeniably difficult, if not unprecedented, to footnote
clairvoyance. We have to take on faith that the SPEAR OF DESTINY
is what Dr.Stein told Ravenscroft. This is not to say that all of his
information came from the Cosmic Chronicle; Dr. Stein as we have
seen is purported to have been present in Vienna during Hitler’s lost
years there. Nor did their close association end in Austria. Ravenscroft
says Dr. Stein “watched at close quarters” the founding of the Nazi party
and Hitler’s association with Eckart and other sinister mentors.

“When Reichsfuehrer SS Heinrich Himmler ordered Dr.
Stein’s arrest in Stuttgart in 1933 in order to press him into
service with the SS Occult Bureau, he escaped from Germany
and brought with him to Britain the most authoritative knowledge
of the occultism of the Nazi Party.”

Nowhere does Ravenscroft make it clear whether he’s talking about
eyewitness knowledge on Dr.Stein’s part or about the sort of information
to be gleaned from the Cosmic Chronicle. But two critics of the SPEAR
OF DESTINY do cast doubt on several of the factual assertions upon
which Ravenscroft’s argument is built.

One is Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke, whose book on the occult roots
of Nazism is quoted above. In an appendix called “THE MODERN
MYTHOLOGY OF NAZI OCCULTISM”, Goodrick-Clarke takes Ravens-
croft to task for the story about Hitler’s relations with the occult book-
seller in Vienna and for his claim that Guido Von List was forced to
flee from outraged Viennese Catholics in 1909 after the sexual rites
of his blood brotherhood were exposed. He writes flatly,

“There is not a shred of evidence for such rituals. List
was never obliged to leave Vienna and he enjoyed the
patronage of prominent Vienna figures…The fictional
nature of the whole episode surrounding the annotated
copy of Parzival is suggested by the similarity of Pretz-
sche’s obscure bookshop to the one described by Sir
Edward Bulwer-Lytton in ZANONI (1842), which probably
served Ravenscroft as a literary model.

Goodrick-Clarke also criticizes Jean Michael Angebert’s book, THE
OCCULT AND THE THIRD REICH, cited above. He brands as imaginary
Angebert’s account of the young Hitler’s association with Lanz von
Lebenfels.

As noted earlier, Goodrick-Clarke’s book is an important and serious
piece of research on Guido von List and Lanz von Lievenfels. But the
author seems a little over-sensitive toward other writers who invoke his
two subjects. Nevertheless, his critique of Angebert and Ravenscroft,
though brief, does offer a glimpse of the misgivings that professional
historians feel regarding such material.

More extensive criticisms have been offered by Christoph Lindenberg
in his review of THE SPEAR OF DESTINY in the German journal Die Drie.
Lindenberg has done some effective digging at the Vienna Records office.
Ravenscroft has Hitler sitting high up in the cheap seats of the Vienna
Opera House in the winter of 1910 – 11 watching Wagner’s Parzifal and
sympathizing with Klingsor. This proves to have been impossible, because
Lindenberg learned that the first performance of Wagner’s opera took place
three years later, on January 14,1914.

Ravenscroft’s second mistake was to name the Viennese bookseller
who introduced Hitler to drugs. “No better name occurred to him than
Pretsche, popular among English writers of fiction for German malefactors,”
Lindenberg writes scornfully before revealing that extensive checks of
Vienna city and business directories and police records for the years
1892 through 1920 were negative for the name in question.25
Next, Lindenberg takes issue with Ravenscroft’s description of the
Danube trip Hitler and Dr. Stein took in May 1913, to visit the mystic
woodcutter, Hands Lodz:

We can overlook Ravenscroft’s mistake of speaking of “Wachau”
as a place and not of the region which really it is. But the details do not
fit: the snow melting in May, the steamer running in spite of the floods,
bathing in the river — it makes no sense. Certainly wrong is the statement
that Hitler had only one testicle… all this has been completely refuted
by [Werner] Maser.

Ravenscroft’s account of Hitler’s circumstances in Vienna also come
in for some heavy criticism. Dr. Stein reportedly sat in a window seat in
Demel’s Cafe, reading the anonymous marginalia in the copy of Parzival
he’d found and concluding they were “the footnotes of Satan” when he
looked through the glass and beheld “the most arrogant face and
demonical eyes he had ever seen”. This was of course the future Fuehrer
in his legendary guise as an impoverished pavement artist, selling home-
made postcards, dressed in a big black “sleazy” coat, his toes visible
through the cracks in his shoes. When in August, 1912, he sought Hitler
out at the “flophouse” he lived in , in Meldemannstrasse, he was told
Hitler was away at Spittal-an-der-Drau collecting a legacy left him by an
aunt. Thereafter, Hitler dressed well.

Hitler did receive a legacy from his aunt, Johanna Poelzl, Lindenberg
reports. But this happens in March, 1911, and the aunt lived in Spital-with-
one-t, not on the Drau but in southern Austria. Furthermore,

“At no time of life did Hitler live in impoverished conditions,
rather he had always sufficient money. In the Meldenmann-
strasse, a kind of large hotel, Hitler paid a rent of 15 Kronen
a month. So he could afford a fairly expensive room and had
no need to sell his pictures, which in any case were not post-
cards. So this scene too, that impoverished Hitler dressed in
an oversized black coat selling water colors in front of the
Cafe Dehmel does not agree with the facts either (cf. the two
works by Werner Maser who with incredible care collected all
ascertained facts of Hitler’s youth).

In his discussion of the holy lance’s power to evoke transcendent
experience, Ravenscroft has a scene in which the chief of the German
general staff, Helmut von Moltke, visited the relic in the company of
Conrad von Hoetzendorf, an Austrian general, shortly before the out-
break of World War I. The spear’s presence led von Moltke to have
a trance vision of himself incarnated as Pope Nicolas I, a ninth century
pontiff concerned, like von Moltke, with the balance of geopolitical
power between east and west.

Untrue protests Lindenberg. “For Moltke visited Vienna neither in
1913 nor in 1914. Conrad and Moltke met on May 12, 1914 at Karls-
bad, from September 7 – 10, 1913, in Silesia, and at Leipzig on
October 18 at the Centenary of the Battle of Leipzig. They had no
other meeting.”

Lindenberg has several other criticisms to make, such as the
assertion that “A number of people who intimately knew Walter
Johannes Stein in the last years of his life state that Stein never
met Hitler.” Unfortunately Ravenscroft’s aversion to footnotes has
ALSO afflicted his critic, and Lindenberg nowhere names these
people NOR does he document his other assertions.

Lindenberg doesn’t like Ravenscroft’s book; he calls it “a pollution
of our spiritual environment.” And it is manifestly difficult for him or
anyone to rebut research done on the cosmic level.

What, in the end, was Hitler all about? Perhaps no better explana-
tion can be found than W.H. Auden’s suggestions, made in his
poem “September 1,1939” and printed as an epigram to Robert G.L.
Waite’s book. The date is the beginning of Hitler’s Blitzkrieg against
Poland:

Accurate scholarship can
Unearth the whole offence
From Luther until now
That has driven a culture mad,
Find what occurred at Linz,
What huge imago made
A psychopathic god:
I and the public know
What all schoolchildren learn,
Those to whom evil is done
Do evil in return.

Controversy Over Witchcraft Liturgy

Witchcraft has become one of the most divi­sive issues to strike the 9.1 million-member United Methodist church.
It started last February during a “Women’s Week” conference at the Highland Park United Methodist Church in Dallas. There, as part of a Perkins School of Theology-sponsored seminar, Linda Finnell — a practicing witch — conducted a ceremony in which she led 25 women and three men in a number of occult practices including a tarot card reading, building an altar to the goddess Diana, channeling energy, and attempting to communicate with a personal spirit guide.

“As I entered the crowded room,” wrote Russ Wise of Probe Ministries of Dallas, “I noticed the lights were turned off and that an altar stood in the front of the class. The glow of four white candles enhanced the image of the goddess, Diana, in the center of the altar. Around the image lay several offerings to the goddess.”

Wise also noted that Finnell’s session lasted an hour and a half and projected “a positive affirmation of witchcraft.”
At press time charges that it was promoting practices incom­patible with Christianity were filed against the Perkins Semi­nary by the leaders of the First United Methodist Church of Ketchum, Oklahoma. They asked the denomination’s Uni­versity Senate to decertify the seminary and place reprimands in the files of professors who approved of the ritual.
Actually, the related issues of witchcraft, feminism, and goddess worship have been raging inside the Methodist church for some time, according to Methodist James Heidinger II, leader of the Wilmore, Kentucky-based Good News evan­gelical caucus. According to the August 27, 1990 National and international Religion Report, Heidinger said that some Methodist seminarians are adopting nontraditional refer­ences to God as “Mother God” or “Mother-Father God.”

The Religion Report article added that “two United Methodist pastors, Susan Cady and Hal Taussig, published a book on goddess worship in 1989 that contains prayers to a deity named Sophia and litur­gies for a communion service — including an endorsement of witchcraft and New Age practices. (See page 23 in the Fall 1987 Christian Research Journal.) At press time, Matthew Fox was set to give a two-day workshop on November 18-19 at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Hazier, New Jersey. The workshop was endorsed by the com­mittees on church and society of both the Northern and Southern New Jersey annual conferences, according to the Septem­ber 1 990 United Methodist Relay.

In late 1988 Fox was silenced by the Vatican for hold­ing views condemned by church officials as “both dangerous and deviant.”

THE ALCHEMY OF GREATER BLACK MAGICK

THE HUMAN AND SATANIC OVER-SOUL.

 

[ The opinions and ideas in this essay are my own. They are my findings and my own perspective, not those of SOTOS. If you find something of value, great! if you feel that it is worthless, thats fine too. Words are used to express ideas that may be interpreted, psychologically, symbolically, Spiritually. Simply, there is no way to communicate concepts that defy ordinary language. the prognosis is GNOSIS.]

 

All physical-conscious beings have an over-soul. The over-soul is formed from the Dark force in nature, as the SAT expands itself outward, to form TAN, the will to be, becomes the true will, based upon a prior pattern of design within the mind of Chaos. Over long periods of time, the over-soul can evolve way beyond its original form, adding to its being, pushed forward by the momentum of the original impulse. It is after many stages of evolution that an over-soul can change and manifest potential for greater conscious awareness, due to the over-soul becoming increasingly self-aware. The more aware the over-soul becomes, the more it realises its uniqueness. At a certain stage of its awareness, the over-soul will project itself into separate independent units; the projections descend through many planes of being, before they manifest physically upon the earth. And when they do, the many diverse impressions that were assimilated by the unit, are all processed in many different ways, thus each unit has its own unique pattern, or Star..

This star lies within the centre of all living things, some stars are quite faint, and they are quickly consumed.. Nothing is wasted however, and eventually you have many units, all with varying forms of consciousness, some units are more aware than others are, these beings are very aware of their inner and true nature.. For many reasons, the animal man above all other creatures, is the least connected to their true nature. The Great Work is the name for this process of re-connection, or the unveiling of the true nature, or in that quaint old term, The Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. (I prefer the use-age of Daemon)
This work at first glance appears to go against the principles and aims of Satanism for many. The reason for this is the terminology and aims of the old literature, in that it assumes the existence of the Highest God of the Hebrews, thus the KCHG, is one of the first steps in uniting with this great human over-soul.

The God of the Christians and Muslims is not the ALL, but rather a Borg like, being that seeks to devour the individual units into itself. The constraints of religious morality and dogma, is to have no hold or part within the psychosm of the Satanist. It is part of the work of the Satanist to explore the Temple of the flesh and all that it contains. It is as sacred a work as will be undertaken. This work, or if you prefer play of the Satanist in pushing the boundaries of consciousness, is explored using altered states by, ritual, trance, music, sex, chemical Gnosis, and drum, or with Hermetic style workings written for works of Greater Black Magick performed upon the self. The Satanist indulges the pleasures of the flesh in whatever ways tendency dictates, exploring the limits of pain and pleasure, and the physical limits of ones own organism. Question all things; rend all ideas limb from limb, the destruction of sacred cows is mandatory. Antinomianism is a powerful and explosive tool for self-transformation, use it wisely. Beyond the apparent hedonism, accompanied by the diary of your exploits, you will be rewarded with much self-knowledge; you will understand your limitations as well as your strengths.

Upon this edifice of Satanic Wisdom you then, with techniques of intense self- reflection and meditation explore the very depths of your being, with greatly enhanced chances of meeting your HGD, despite the bleating of RHP dogmatists, the cathartic decadence you have used to free yourself from the meme of our cultural and religious paradigm, and indeed, our own sacred cows can be of great help in this regard. If the Satanist perseveres with inner hermetic work to the ends previously discussed, the length and depth of the communion with the over-soul will be deeper, more defined, in fact, we find that this deep altered state of consciousness can be picked up by Preternatural intelligences. These intelligences are attracted to us functioning in their realm so to speak. To many more materialistic Satanists, these will be seen as portions of the human brain, as per Crowley’s theory expounded in the essay ‘Dangers of High Magick’
My words need only be brief on this, for the Satanist the spirit, mind, and flesh, are one.The Satanist reaches into the depths of his being and experiences the Black flame within, this is the canvas upon which will be painted, the evolutionary progress of his or her life; we begin to see that this portion of the over-soul can be made manifest in the flesh. This is also why many Satanists in the last few years have been communicating with ‘Demons’ and other astral beings, using formulas traditionally associated with such matters. Because of this synthesis of the old and the post-modern leanings of chaos and relativity, we are seeing many LHP people speaking about their experiences with such things, something that was not the norm in modern Satanic circles until relatively recent times. Satanists are looking into the ritual formats of Orders such as the Golden Dawn, and are rewriting the rituals from these RHP Orders, or just writing their own along traditional lines. There is much of value within the Kabbalistic systems, and we may exploit this a little later on when progress permits. It is also true to say, that the hermetic approach to path-working the Tree of Life can be modified and structured using a Satanic/Chaos Magick approach, thus creating the beginnings of a simple yet effective way of communicating with the inner landscapes. What we can do with the qualities that are represented by the Sephira (receptacles) so-called, is to identify strengths and weaknesses within our character, as well as using the system for many other forms of Magickal work.

THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS

The Prince of Darkness or Satan, is the first truly independent self-aware being to come into existence, The Prince of Darkness created a divide between himself and the objective universe, a ‘split’ from the uniform nature of existence. As the first fully self-aware entity, Satan created a ripple of effects that continued throughout the universe culminating in the creation of a multitude of forms.
Satan, by his action of division, had destroyed the one thought that had previously existed, within which, no other separate thing or thought was manifest. Within creation there exists the impulse for unification with the source, to heal this painful split from the ‘All ‘. The obvious example of this in the west is the religion of Christianity, which has, at the centre of its theology, the sin of Adam, which separates man from God. Christ is seen as God made flesh, sent to reconcile man with God through the sacrifice of his body for the sin of mankind. Consistent with the loss of unity is the idea of a ‘One’ true way, which harkens back to a less complicated time when the Universe was undivided, ergo most RHP religion’s state that they are the ‘One’ truth and all others false. The Eastern religions amount to the same thing, in a nutshell they state that it is the work of the initiate to merge his or her consciousness with some vague cosmic mind, thus healing the painful split from the ‘One’ thought. The Prince/ess of Darkness is the exception to the rule, the desire to strengthen the sense of individuality and separateness from the Universe rather than seek unification with it. It is easier to understand from the perspectives above, why the Prince of Darkness is considered ‘evil’ by the standards of RHP theology. As anything which has as its principle modus-operandi the intensification and evolution of the self, is seen as an opposition to the conformity inherit within the theological systems of the RHP, with their emphasis on either obeying a revealed word of God, or merging with this God forsaking the self. Thus, In my opinion there is no reason to view the story of Satan rebelling against IHVH and similar tales, as anything but allegory of the above stated ideas as myth. I see the ‘light’ (sun) as a symbol of the RHP, as most RHP systems of religion use the analogy of light to state that we have truth
revealed as in Xtianity, and must obey Gods word. Modern Wicca comes under the heading of a RHP religion, as it has three-fold laws, and ideas of ‘service’ to the Goddess etc.. In Eastern thought, we merge with the revealed light . Thus, there is nothing more to find in systems of religion or initiation where these principles are stated or implicit, as there is nothing more to add, but the disciples faith to be saved or the initiates surrender and consumption into cosmic oblivion.
The Darkness symbolizes that which is unknown, hidden, that which lies unperceived waiting to be discovered. With the LHP, the Satanist is constantly questioning and delving into both the darkness within, and the darkness without, using the ‘light’ as a torch in the shadows. This is where communication with the Prince/ess of Darkness will often reveals things about ourselves that we were previously unaware. Thus, rather that diminishing the self, we find out more about our self, and are constantly re-evaluating what this means on
an individual level.

Satan has always appeared as the patron of progress, science, rationalism, individuality, evolution, and the positive advantages of utilizing these principles to work with nature respectfully, preserving as much of the earths integrity as is possible. Satan also symbolises the Satanists ongoing work of creating and manifesting the divine self. Many initially come to Satanism, because they are attracted to the rebellious and perceived anti-social aspect of the Prince of Darkness, mistaking Satan’s stand against divine mindlessness for simple petulant tantrums against authority. There is nothing wrong with teenage Satanists questioning the values of parents, religion, and society, but Satanist’s (and particularly teenagers) should be encouraged to grow beyond this stage, and begin plumbing the depths of the LHP.
The Prince of Darkness as I perceive him/her is an ancient, constantly evolving intelligence that enjoys the respect, honour, and companionship of those who are on the LHP. It has been my experience that the Prince of Darkness is very holistic in his approach to us as individuals. If the Prince of Darkness always tells you what you want to hear, rather than what you need to hear, then it may be time to question the validity of your communication.
