Christ in Hades

(image (c) John Coulthart)

As Requested, Sample Paragraph from HS, sans scent.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.”
—John 8:44,45

And so it was that, instead of freeing humanity, Jeshua sowed the seeds of a new system of worship. Depending upon how much insight we attribute to Jeshua—and whether we consider his mission to have pertained only to the human race or to the evolution of the Cosmos—such a delay can be seen as part of the original plan. But even so, Jeshua no doubt hoped his disciples would have the energy to join him in accepting the plasmate, and that together they would lead humanity to freedom, which would explain his promise, “This generation shall not die before these things come to pass.” For some, perhaps these words were fulfilled. But as an illuminated soul or homoplasmate, Jeshua must have known how slim were the chances that his disciples would be able to follow him, and that in all probability the new strand (Christ’s “vine”) would remain embryonic. This is why Jeshua left precise instructions with the Apostles, specifically Peter, to “feed the sheep,” i.e., spread the word to Gentiles and Jews alike, that the vine might grow and prosper over the next two thousand years and keep the fruit (plasmate) alive. Meanwhile, having fused with Jehovah (and in order not to abandon his “flock”), Christ “descended to Hades.” The magikal implications of this are obscure. The suggestion is that, in the process of doing battle (or making peace) with “the prince of this world” (Yaldaboath or Jehovah), Jeshua merged his consciousness with that of the Earth. “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:31,32). Jeshua may have been overly optimistic, however, because two thousand years later, humanity is still awaiting the judgment, and has yet to be drawn “unto Christ.”

Like Osiris, Christ went west. “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40). Although orthodox Christianity interprets this literally as the three days between crucifixion and resurrection (despite the apparent impossibility of fitting a 72-hour period between Good Friday and Easter Sunday), the magikal perspective might interpret “three days” as three cosmic decans (a decan being ten degrees or one third of an astrological sign), each one lasting 720 years and adding up to the length of an astrological age. In other words, the time it would take for the Earth-Sun alignment to move from Pisces to Aquarius. Christ as Logos is the Creator of the World (“He was in the world and the world was made by him and the world knew him not.” John 1:10). A level above the demiurge, he is answerable only to “the Father” (the source). In his compassion, Christ gave humanity one more age to get its act together, to construct its collective energy body and prepare to “ascend” to unitive consciousness.

During this cycle, the old devil Yaldaboath appears to have been undergoing a process of reform amounting to re-alignment with his true, cosmic function. The inevitable side-effect of this “corrective process,” however (i.e., of living inside the energy field of this aberrant being and being slowly converted to its dark vibration), has been the total, final corruption of the human race, in what might best be termed contagion. The more “repentant” and purified Yaldaboath gets, then, the more contaminated and diseased the Earth, and by extension humanity, has grown. Man has become a devil, and “the Devil,” in turn, humanity’s only chance for salvation! When Christ went down to Hades, it was the last phase of this “transference of power.” Christ became the spirit of Earth, and Man, as such, became the adversary.

On the Other Hand . . .

Received 50 copies of Homo Serpiens this week, and I have to say: they smell really, really good.

If that's not a recommendation, I don't know what is.

Everything You Never Needed to Know About the End Times* (*But Couldn't Help But Ask Anyway)

Today Homo Serpiens is finally released.

Today is also Aleister Crowley’s birthday.

This lets us all know that something is afoot. Do not trust what you are about to read. Ever again.

Two days ago, I listened to JDR saying that the only reason anyone ever wrote a book was to steal energy from those who read it.

Listen to JDR.

Do not buy this book.

On the other hand: if you want to read an occult text that will cure you of ever wanting or needing to read about occult matters again, give this book a try.

The path of knowledge is good for one thing and one thing only: it will get you to a place where you will know, really know, that knowledge will never get you anywhere.

(except to this place)

The hunger for knowledge can be sated; it really can. And when it is sated, we will cease to seek outward for tools and terminology to provide pain relief for our wounded, shipwrecked souls. We will be ready to lay down inside of what we know to be true.

I no longer have any desire to read an occult book, ever again. Not even Homo Serpiens (though I will probably give it a look).

There is “knowledge” in this book that has never been put into print before. It represents a level of “occult wisdom” that few individuals ever attain, or are even exposed to.

But most of it is worthless.

Why? Because it does not come from a place of Knowing.

Most of it is now utterly irrelevant to me. All of this “occult wisdom” has not done a single thing for me (except to show me that it has not done a single thing for me).

Homo Serpiens, then, may as well be a work of fiction.

Yet for those who want to know the shape of the dream-fabrication called “the end times” that is currently coming into its final stages (?) before and around us, as a species, and are curious as to how all this relates to DNA, those who are ready to “know” more than they could ever find in a book before, to the point that they wish, after all, they had never asked, I can recommend this book.

It won’t ruin your life; but it might just put you off the path of occult knowledge forever. If so, then I have done a service of which I need not be overly ashamed.

It is not a crime to move on; there is no shame in seeing the light. Well, actually, there is quite a lot of shame involved in seeing the light, but we don’t have to apologize for our shamefulness.

I am not apologizing. I am in, in a subtle and self-subverting way, plugging my book. Even though I know that, whatever I get from your buying and reading it, another part of me loses exactly that much.

I would ask that any potential readers treat this book as a work of fiction. That they keep firmly in mind the author’s post-publication admission: that he no longer believes a single word in it, because he knows that the act of simply writing these things down, has made them somehow untrue to him personally.

Homo Serpiens will tell you everything you need to know about God, Satan, and Human DNA in the End Times. But most of all, if I have done my job properly, it will let you know that you really never needed to know any of this in the first place. Because it has nothing at all to do with what you really know inside to be true.

Be in that tiny bit, and let the end times roll off you like duck off a water’s back.

Pain is a great awakener

Gnosis = Crisis.

There are no somebodies here; no one is ever going to get anywhere by pursuing a path to enlightenment, whether by drugs, or yoga, or meditation, or philosophy, or sorcery, or Ufos, or anything; these are all just the ways we try to get what we want, to be somebody in our lives.

The space being held here doesn't allow for any of that; this isn't a space where you get to feel good about yourself, or to help others to feel good about themselves. This isn't a space where knowledge or intellectual understanding counts for anything, except insofar as it can be used to make and hold a space, a space for us all to move slowly into what we know to be true, and to surrender to that tiny, tiny bit.

A Word About Mating

The reason true love does not permit of human interference is simple: when we choose a partner or chase after a potential relationship, we are invariably doing so for personal reasons. But the only sort of sexual relationship that allows for alchemy is one that doesn't meet with our personal requirements, and often as not goes against them. These alchemical parings are arranged by Spirit, by the Faery, and the Faery do not make mistakes.

When the time comes for us to be matched with an alchemical partner, for a week a year or a lifetime, it will happen, and there's nothing we need do or can do to ensure that (tho we do have the option of co-operating!).

On the other hand, any attempt to hurry or anticipate such a matching is the one thing that might, potentially, sabotage such a paring. Because, if we personally invest in an alchemical paring, such investment might contaminate the purity of the match, and render it useless.

"Let him not seek after this; for thereby alone can he fall from it." (Liber Al)

So either way, we are wasting our precious time and energy, if we ever find ourselves personally investing into a potential match.
