Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy
- Apart from the Path of Alchemical Liberation itself,
Harry Potter has been the most amazing thing in my
life. As I said in post HPfS No. 1, in Harry Potter I
recognise ever more clearly the timeless Path leading
to eternity. Discovery has been followed by discovery,
and the remarkable thing is that whenever I find
something new, it's always confirmed by something from
another direction. For example when I discovered that
Dobby personifies the etheric body logic led me to
realise that obviously the Malfoys must personify the
physical body with its male and female aspects. Then
suddenly I remembered with a shock Mrs Malfoy's name:
Narcissa! This refers to the ancient Greek legend of
Narcissus: the handsome young man who saw the image of
his own body in the water and fell in love with it.
This story is well known to me as symbolising the
Fall. That is the confirmation that the Malfoys do
indeed symbolise the physical body. This is just one
more suggestion to me that Jo DOES want us to
understand what Harry Potter is all about. She leaves
clues everywhere. How many haven't I discovered yet?
The Seventh Cosmic Plane was originally a gigantic
alchemical laboratory in which the original human
being was to work on the Divine Plan. The essence of
this universe, both in its original state and its
fallen one, is incessant change. Things in this
universe move in circles, in cycles of rising, shining
and fading. They condense and crystallise, only to be
pulverised and dissipate again. They move through the
states of matter, from solids to liquids to gases, and
back again. They form compounds which react with each
other, forming yet other compounds, and then break
down into elements again. The human being was to work
in this laboratory without living in it, without
associating with it.
The original intention of God was that matter was to
be left without reason (i.e. the faculty of
reasoning). The moment that spirit and matter
associate themselves with each other, an impossible
situation arrives, for then matter gains reason, and
What I mean is this. When spirit connects itself with
matter, spirit and matter (which is the opposite of
spirit) mix. Now the essence of spirit is that it is
eternal and unchanging, while matter is continuously
changing, as indicated above. When spirit and matter
mix, matter drags spirit down with it, causing
crystallisation. Matter resists the spirit, which
tries to maintain itself. The action of the spirit to
maintain itself causes matter to condense and
crystallise. In this way spirit is imprisoned in
matter, which is the root cause of all suffering. That
is the Fall.
Humanity was to use matter as an alchemical working
material, as an aid towards fulfilling the Divine
Plan, but was told not to associate itself with it
(remember the commandment in Paradise). The legend of
the Sorcerer's Apprentice shows what happens if you
try to put life into things without fully knowing what
you're doing. This young sorcerer cast a spell on
brooms to carry water, but could not stop them. He was
nearly washed away by the water.
The original human being entered the alchemical
laboratory of the Seventh Cosmic Plane and experienced
it as a garden of wonders, as a paradise. This place
was so marvellously attractive and beautiful that from
time to time he forgot his true Home and remained
working in the Garden of the Gods. He saw himself
standing in the centre. He saw his own reflection in
the water and fell in love with it. He wanted to
cohabit with it. But that meant his will had created a
very erroneous image. Nature, matter, embraced her
lover and began to merge with him. And this is how
the human being was imprisoned in matter.
Here we are millions of years later, still imprisoned
in matter, with the a spark of the original spirit
dormant in the heart, and the fallen human being
living in a universe of sorrow, suffering and death.
And every now and then matter proclaims its supremacy,
as we've seen in Asia this week.
And so I see Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy not only as
the physical body, but in fact the symbol of our
imprisonment in matter, where we do not belong. This
is why they are vassals of Lucifer. Lucifer, as I've
said before, is the personification of the sum total
of our erroneous actions since the Fall. That's why
Lucius' name is so close to Lucifer's.
When we go the Path of Alchemical Transfiguration, the
etheric body, the astral body and the mental body are
transfigured. The physical body is not. It has to be
left behind. Flesh and Blood cannot inherit the
Kingdom of Heaven.
However when the candidate for transfiguration has
accomplished the defeat of Lucimort, the physical body
can be used to serve the resurrected Divine Human
Being in his communication with "muggles". I wonder if
we'll see a reformed Lucius serving Harry at the end?
How am I doing, Jo?
