Transformation - Part 33 of 33 parts
We've been speaking these past thirty-two weeks
about The Path of Return on the Tree of Life.
This path leads us from "Ignorance" in the tenth
sphere to 'enlightenment" in the first sphere.
It's a path of thirty-two distinct and separate
steps leading from the depths of darkness to
These steps form the basis of the teachings of the
Magickal Order of the Golden Dawn
(http://MagickalOrder.com) and Esoteric
Freemasonry (http://EsotericMasons.com). These
steps are included in Spiritual Alchemy though
they are "hidden" until one completes the work of
both the Society and the Temple. They are
included in the lessons of the Universal Gnostic
They can also be assigned to the cards of a Tarot
deck. For example, Ignorance is another name for
the Devil and this card is assigned to Sphere Ten
on the Tree of Life. Paying Attention is another
name for the Magician and Awakening is another
name for the Tower. These two cards are assigned
to the upward path from Sphere Ten to Sphere Nine
and to Sphere Nine respectively. These three
cards describe the culmination of the work to be
accomplished in the Octagon Society.
Keys Two and Three are paths leading to Sphere
Eight, and Keys Four, Five and Six are paths
leading to Sphere Seven. Sphere Eight is Key
Seventeen and Sphere Seven is Key Eighteen. These
seven cards describe the culmination of the work
to be accomplished in the Temple of Solomon.
Together with the Society, these ten cards
describe the preliminary work and accomplishment
we all make as we prepare to enter the work of the
Order of Spiritual Alchemy.
By following the remaining paths from bottom to
top, numerically from sphere to sphere, and
placing the cards in this order, you can get a
preview of the work and accomplishments you may
expect as a member of the Order. You can also
obtain this same knowledge without tarot cards.
My prayer for you is you become a Master Spiritual
Alchemist. Thus ends this discussion, we'll take
up another subject next time.
As Above, So Below.
As Without, So Within.
