Welcome back! There has been many developments on the blog. We have gone into the Initiatic current, which has unfortunately delayed the process of our tarot pathwork. We also have developed a brand new website http://www.gnostictarotcards.com/. We have developed the structure for the rest of our posts and entries in the About Us section. We are going to introduce a practical application section to assist in changes of personality by my beloved wife Connie who has practiced tarot and divination for 15 + years! . Future bio will be made available in the About Us section in the Homepage.
There is however a distinction (from initiatic work ) between the wisdom of tarot and the theurgy of tarot. We are now able to walk the entire journey, all the way to the goal , which is of course LIGHT! If you have been initiated we can help with this now, therefore there will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd level teachings. Respectively this is Practical, Wisdom and Light!
Now to the temple of illusion which is The Tower. Practically the Tower means to destroy something to reveal its faulty underpinnings. in Wisdom tradition this was the destruction of the thought forms created by the manufacturing mind. Like Blavatsky says, “the mind is the slayer of the real”. This is exactly what is happening. Kings and Queens have established structures and conceptual forms of thinking that oppose wisdom, for this once the light is revealed it will eradicate the darkness.
This may happen socially, psychologically, emotionally, mentally etc. Kings and Queens in this respect are the Archons that have been set up to design the world. Archons are powers and may be seen as imprisoners, not evil but by the nature of their office, they created things that are interesting and seductive. Like a tasty apple!
Our way doesn’t consist of cutting yourself off from the rest of the planet. On the contrary , the planet needs us. As long as the mind is caught up in cognitive and discursive activity , to that extent will we have the un-real but elusively solid forms of society crumbled down again and again. We are focused upon (at least here in the USA) more and more money, property, gaining a reputation, establishing a feeling of purpose and meaning through transient premises.
For many this step will immediately launch us into a painful process of birth and rebirth through the walk of a different path. The road isn’t easy as any true journey. This brings to mind Tibetan Buddhist monks who prostrate all the way to stupas of Shakyamuni Buddha, about 5000 miles! To one that is focused upon the destination this seems ridiculous, but to a monk trained in a Monastery this is exactly the test of endurance needed to shatter the “defilement of attachment”. As Yeshua says “its not what is put into us that defiles , but what comes out of us”.
If we have taken the step toward this goal of enlightenment , then it will become evident early on in our progress. Fight for your lives but not against the people who persecute you. This means to me that its not the big bad capitalists that will win, they in fact lose if , and this is a big IF , if they do not enlarge their internal state. Therefore keep money, but like Master Aivanhov says “don’t keep your money in your head , store it in the bank , safe or pocket ” where its supposed to go. Funny stuff but its real amazing teaching. Attachment to money is the root to all yetzer ha-ra or evil inclination, not money itself. This is the exact same thinking line of Buddhists, the attachment to transient things creates suffering and aversion to their loss. In fact this is a tenet in Buddhism. Tenets to a Buddhist , are indisputable, and fundamental lynchpins of the entire system of thinking.
Again the path to enlightenment is not accomplished immediately. Only in Tantra is it possible to become completely and utterly cleansed of the effects of negative actions or if you wish “bricks in the false structures of The Tower”.
In light and love
