The Golden Dawn material

Postby neofight » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:00 am

I just finished reading The Middle Pillar by I Regardie. I am waiting for my copy of a Garden of Pomegranates. Ive already studied the GD manuscript. I find the Middle Pillar to be extremely intro in content, mostly a pro-occult study/ceremonial guide, without much comment on what to expect, or how to overcome the "shadow" that Chic and Tabitha comment on later. I mean, what is this "shadow"? it can mean anything- at any time I could either be a shadow, or standing in light- it is up to me to decide, and I could do this at any time- even in the beginning. There doesn't seem to be any particular destination in mind for these authors. There also seems to be lacking a number of necessary magickal ideas to work with, even in the GD manuscript. If you want to chant Divine names without even understanding what you are doing, then this is fine- but it is the meaning of these name which matter, and they don't bother explaining them. The GD manuscript was undecipherable to me until I read Understanding Thoth Tarot by DuQuette- which honestly showed what these things mean, and he did it in a clean and concise, useful method that the GD script totally ignores. I really see now why the GD failed. Crowleys system of magick is far superior. Im holding back judgment until I read pomegranates. Im still looking for "the" book that gives me all the definitions and options. [rage]
