The Silence and the Speech

written by David Bersson

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

There will be times of the proclamations publicly and there will be periods of silence. No doubt, those times to withdraw into the silence to tend to the business of spiritual enlightenment or the awakening of magical powers or the fulfillment of the Oaths & Tasks are vital for our growth with the Great Work.

Yet it is written to be taken as a Holy Task and Duty to gather the children into the fold to bring the glory of the stars into the hearts of man. For those who meditate carefully on such a sublime meditation this means the Temple of Nuit must hold priority over the tendency to become the old aeon Hermit who would permanently go to the forest or the mountain. How perfectly saturated with irony it is that in the past the Hermit went to the forest and the mountains not to attain to spiritual enlightenment but to escape the madness of persecution from the variant of inquisitions.

You should know now that you are reading how it all deteriorated to a point where those who had true wisdom and power were hunted down like animals and burnt at the stake for objecting to a lens that was considered contrary to the dogma of the monotheistic tyrants. We all know what occurred in 1518 e.v. in Germany and so forth where even the innocent alchemist who divined for water for farmers was persecuted and called the devil's spawn!! The dark ages meant there were few places to live where dark dungeons, the rake, the stake and torture did not exist.

So many of our spiritual ancestors escaped to rural areas to avoid the murder and torture of the heathen Church or the Jihad of the Caliph or the newly anointed King by the Church that the Church invented the word "Pagan" which means "country". This was not a word that we named ourselves in spite of the many who are like us who call themselves pagan. Therefore, although I do not object to be called pagan I have never referred it as a definition for myself. After all, I live in the city and not the country. Therefore, calling myself a pagan knowing how it originated I would not use the term at all.

For clarity purposes, and to not bother with those who would otherwise have so little educational background on the western esoteric system I have let it go to permit myself to be defined as pagan. Yet, this is not a word that is ordinarily used to define us.

Returning to my original point I note that when we now come into the open to offer the hand of fraternity we know where to draw the red line with regards to being overly dramatic. Any statements that are blatantly dramatic are simply a dramatic ritual in the form of a message that are specially designed to cause change in conformity with will which is the true magick.

Love is the law, love under will

Contemplations of the Invocations of the Gods

written by David Bersson

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

I write of the Gods in this essay. On the Path to discover the secrets of the universe I learned much from my Great Work as a magician & exorcist. How it all began with Me I will eventually expound in another essay. I prefer for this essay to simply expound a few insights on the advantages of experience and understanding of the mystical universe from the perspective of polytheism.

Without a doubt I who being the demeanor that would view from a lens that isn't perceived for those who haven't tread the Path I have I would react against the common dogma that so infatuates the multitudes. You cannot know what the ancient Priestess or Priest experienced in the ancient Temples unless you wear their robes, make those ancient gestures, utter the barbarous words and meet the unknown with courage conquering fear.

How weary it is to hear one, one, one from those who would try to discuss the dogma or creed of their deteriorated path. One, one, one!! That is all you will hear from others! How many incarnations do I have to put up with this? Didn't we go through this before in previous incarnations? Therefore, when I expound to all insights that have come from experiences beyond your wildest dreams I have a certain amount of satisfaction that where I was shall not be lost, and what I have become shall be known to all, and what it possible shall at last be known.

This essay will not go into the horrors of the transition of world civilization from glorious polytheism to the perceptions of inferior monotheism whose limitations with regards to perception of the mystical universe have been covered with such detail in my books. I give only the prelimary contemplations on this often complex subject.

In every case the Invocation of a God or Goddess must be deliberated on very concisely. The nature of the magick and powers of the God or Goddess must be made thoroughly familiar.

It is otherwise imperative that the image of the God mingle perfectly with the magician & the invocation be consistent with the magical current that would be so sacred to the God or Goddess's nature.

It is well that you would get what you invoke and therefore the invocation should be consistent with those principles of magick wherein the God or Goddess is known to you as you proclaim, "I who am Thou am He".

Making the various Gods or Goddesses familiar to you intellectually is only preliminary.

For the Gods are the symbolism of humanity's aspiration to perfection in whatever aspect that God or Goddess is in touch with the reality of some trait in human nature.

Therefore to invoke the Gods is to bring yourself in touch with such forces so that love might be divine for a Goddess of Love, or any of those other traits that would so need manifestation that the very aspects of the personality or nature of the person might be brought forth to a greater awakening of their humanity. Having done so you are in a position to align the volition of the divine with the true will of the individual nature making a true initiation to occur within the being.

How perfectly pathetic it is that when many write of the Gods they do not put the first letter in uppercase and do so even if they are atheist when they write of God.

This shows you something very important about how history is ignored with regards to the Gods. Civilizations have come and gone with as much as three thousand years of polytheism and yet when it comes time for the scholars to give us any real insight they give us blank stares.

This leaves only Men like Me who would try to expound My experiences and even if the scholars perceived this they have not entered the secret doorways that I have.

Love is the law, love under will

The Holy Task of publishing my books I have given a loyal member of the Order. I decided to give this Task to a loyal brother so I wouldn't be tempted (as I have been prior) to giving away my books and losing profit. So, if you decide you want to have My books you will have to write Frater Nshyh who tends to this Task to learn from him what is presently in stock.
