- A rough (and brief :) outline from a variety of spiritual scientific
teachings on that which counters the Christ Impulse could be this:
1. The "Adversely Commanded" among the hierarchies...that's their
job within the Divine Intent...their impediments are lawful for
them, they're not for us...They have no power over man other than to
tempt (The Temptation)...as Steiner said, Michael doesn't hate
Lucifer, he fears his power and influence over man. One particular
initiate claims that if they are resisted long enough, they will
actually become helpers on the spiritual path (e.g. Job).
2. Demons, unclean spirits, incubi/succubi, whatnot..."...the
objectification (and therefore real) of that which takes its origin
in subjective consciousness...artifical (man-made) but actual...the
parasitic entities which are to the psychic organism what, for
example, cancer is to the physical organism (Jung)...psychological
complexes for the individual, egregores for the collective (e.g.
Moloch, etc)...they can become autonomous and overwhelm the
ego...the traditional remedy is exorcism, nowadays it's therapy.
Those who practice individual occultism know all about this business.
3. Creatures of Will...those furthest removed from, "Thy will be
done"...pure individual will drives intellect and feeling...the
latter two (however well formed) are subserviant to the
former...will not make sacrifice nor negotiate with respect to the
personal will...clever...he wills survival and therefore adopts
pacificism...wills dominance, becomes a teacher...wills pay-back,
sues for the "general good"...cure?...damned if I know...maybe a Zen
master from the Rinzai tradition...they use a stick...G.
