Brief Notes on The Magnum Opus
The object of the entire exercise of the magian art is to move the
kundalini up the spine to the lotus of light. From the there, the
mage can vibrate in perfect harmony with the AUM.
The message of the process is given in three-fold instruction.
Alchemy gives symbols, Magick gives a demonstration of the symbols,
and Yoga puts the symbolic knowledge into action.
The Chi or Prana is circulating the body, through many points or
centers. There are twelve basic energy points, through which the
spiritual energy are controled, or by which the magician can be
controled. These are symbolized in Alchemy as the twelve zodiac
animals, conquered in Magick as the twelve demons, and made
periferal in Yoga as the twelve sidhis.
Control of each energy center will give the magician the power of
miracles, but each is to be avoided because they show a lack of
balance. Prophets and sages perform miracles at times of stress
within their ministry when their energy centers are in crisis.
There are two basic channels of Prana. These are the Salt and the
Sulphur of Alchemy, the Jachin and Boaz of Masonry, and the Ida and
Pingala of Yoga. Rather than have the energy flow through these
channels into the Twelve points, causing suffering, they must be
directed to flow evenly between the seven chakras, along the spine
or middle pillar, causing bliss and understanding.
The middle pillar is the center of the tree of Kabalah, the spine in
Yoga, and the Mercury of Alchemy.
The energy of life is put into balance when it flows evenly between
the seven chakras of Yoga, the seven planets of Alchemy, the seven
angels of High Magick. Once the seven gates in the Merkaba are
opened, communication with the mind of the creator is possible.
Elohim = 7 angels
