A quick snappy way to introduce you to Archangel Lucifer, well, if you're one to throw toothbrushes at demons to wash their mouths, Archangel Lucifer suggests you make sure the toothpaste you use has extra "whitening" gel on it. "Your welcome" he adds, a tip he was asked to forward from his colleague Set.
If the above offends you, welcome to shadow-work done significantly at the primal Self, our Draconian heritage. Yes, we take everything about you that you're scared to look at, and try to transmute it for the rest of the collective subconscious (unconscious). This is the mastery alchemy class, where I have used Black Magick (Kali's Ma's mantras) not on some external force, but on myself so that I may face the worst of my karma's, to be rid of it. I chose to dive deep into my own insanity, my own cognitive dissonance, where I have realized that demons are only my red flag guides who scream for me to look for the truth, as I walk through Daath. You know the whole adage, "the truth hurts". As an empath, I've been absorbing other people's shitty overtly-limiting belief systems, particularly the sacrificial door-mat, where my push in spirituality has been on two ends, to end my suffering and figure out the truth behind God. My search has only brought me more of my own Self, as each identity and it's numerous thought-pattern constructs that support each identity are dissolved under the trident (nadi's, sushumna). Kali Ma has brought me to the truth and serenity of "divine presence", where her son Kartikeya-Melek Taus is now pushing my buttons, teaching me tame my inner beast. Nonetheless, this is shadow-work where you cannot "white-wash" the truth. The left hand path, I feel, is best suited for those who seek wisdom above all-else. It helps that my initiator and guide is a fine-ass, shameless, Goddess! But Be Aware. Own your primal Self, your True-Self. (For those who prefer Angels, but would like to use the purifying energies of Draco, I highly recommend Asaya Ka Luxa, by Vermilion as it is a gift from the "Council of Light"; Balance Draco with Lyra).

Like most individuals looking into the Western occult traditions, you don't want to dabble in something you don't know or could even begin to understand. The Western world has pushed the concept of polarity, good&evil, men&women, nonetheless, it is important to understand that it was simply an energy, a bandwave, being played out over the planet, an ode to Determinist philosophers negating free-will. Free-will is still governed under the notions of oscillating the yin/yang, where the goal is to "let go" for "divine presence" and allow "harmony/grace" of the yin/yang of dropping the egoic-monkey mind. However, while still in the monkey-mind, practices involving Demonic Grimoires can easily led to insanity. Imagine having the worst thrown at you, where you will have to sort through your most damaging belief systems. I only chose this route after discovering the difference between the monkey-mind and "divine presence", where if the monkey-mind becomes an issue, all such harsh energies are quite quickly dissolved in the emptiness of "I Am" where I'm finding my ego-self as not only cleaner like a breathe of fresh air, but strengthened, colored in with some depth. Like an Angel with a Leather Jacket. You heard me Hindu.
As I had opened my own subconscious to Daath, during the prior months, I had to take the ritual, my sanity, and every moment (sign, synchronicity) seriously as I cannot have any slip-ups, where I can be easily slammed into the depression of the monkey-mind, with "divine presence" difficult to realize. I've seen too many signs of my ritual manifesting externally, such as my boss starting a new company, and naming it with an ancient synonym that means "origin", and in proper cultural context I'm not sure my boss considered, it means "primal chaos", which I take to be Umma Tiammat the energy of Draco. I've had a lot of "oh, shit" moments, much more smack in the face then working with Angels and their cute lil numbers. For the adept walking through Daath, you must reach for the Goddess (Binah), or risk falling down the other side of the tree of life. Hence, post my working on the qliphoth, I went back to focusing strictly on Shakti to help me manage. As Kali and the Mahavidyas are my "team", I chose Goddess Kamakhya/Kubjika specifically, where I'm basically objectively worshiping a vagina. As I understand her archetypal symbolism and she feels to me like a sodashi (16 yr), I didn't really take note that I was worshiping (focusing intent on) a vagina, until a fellow guide stated on youtube, "Heaven is found between a women's legs". Holy shit, "as within, so without". In addition, this synchronicity was also supported by the fact that a mother pigeon decided to raise two of her children on my patio. I had front-row seats to watching two pigeons grow up surrounded by tulsi (sacred basil), which I took as a sign that Garuda-Vishnu was watching over me as I dabbled with darker practices. In addition, I later discovered that the vahana-vehicle of Goddess Rati, consort of God Kama, is a pigeon. Nonetheless, it was these pigeons who brought me Mt. Meru (Sodashi-High Heart) at a time when I was truly lost in my own abyss.
It was through Enochian Magick (Jason Louv's course), where my monkey-mind showed me the Divine Mother as Parvati. As Parvati is the Shakti of the Universe and Shiva as All That Is (Including Lord of the Beasts), Parvati would also be the "lover" of "All That Is". Yes, that does have the completely loving of someone else feel to it, but this is also the "love-sick" "helen of troy" type of love, that is expressed through a specific aspect of Binah, Aleister Crowley's "Babalon". Since I had Kamakhya working on me, it seemed quite appropriate to dabble in some Babalon. Although I did locate some invocations, they were unnecessary, as the romantic-lust filled pull, a type of addiction I'm assuming a heroine addict would thirst for, begin its initiatory gentle pull on my mind, my heart, and my loins. I'm glad I was provided the "helen of troy" analogy, as this is the type of love that will drive saints mad, as they spill their essence into her Holy Graal. Oh our holy wonderful desecrated Goddess, whereas, I am just another addict. A true rose birthed within the gates of Ishtar. No ritual was needed, where Peter Grey's The Red Goddess reeks with her current, a wonderfully deluded drunken two-week read, where this adept might as well have dropped a bottle of potent aphrodisiacs. Luckily, the animal vessel can only handle so much, and would need to transcend, once the Graal is filled.
Post Babalon, Lucifer was making himself known by and through little notions here and there. I believe I still held some fear around this archetype, as he would typically be seen as the main adversarial role against Creator. Nonetheless, as I gathered more information from actual practitioners, I was also influenced by the Netflix series "Lucifer", a show that was also recommended by the same individual who stated "Heaven is found between a women's legs". Damn, women are dangerous. Anyways, the series hit emotionally hard for me, as I feel like I have been the Devil surrounded by White. As an example, as I may shed a memory, I actually had to stop wearing my Shiva pendant at Protestant elementary, as I was found out and it would have gotten real bad if I didn't hide. I had to deny my Self then, for the limiting-belief of safety. Moreover, I felt Lucifer's presence quite often, when listening to music, etc., but I had not allowed myself to "let go" for his current due to fear. After working with Umma Tiamat and handling the intensity of Her Demon-Gods, I'm expecting Lucifer to "bring the fire"! I was nervous and I pushed working with Lucifer for a while as I gathered more information.
As found through many traditions, making pacts with beings is common occurrence, particularly with archetypes representing the crossroads, as both Robert Johnson/Eric Clapton have publicly expressed. All of my rituals so far, have been for Self realization. I'm not trying to increase my suffering and plunge myself more into harsh samsara. So do I make the pact with Lucifer, do I not make this pact, as this pact would be the first outside of my comfort-zone. Umma Tiamat is our own soul-consciousness, that primal current that will shred matter back into source, and she is also the soul-consciousness of Mother Earth. Hence, I have no issue with Tiamat and her crew, as it is our True Self. Nonetheless, it was painful and can be quite frightening for an adept afraid of the dark. Lucifer is an initiator and guide on the path, can I really handle his initiatory ordeal? Am I really going to sell my soul, for a heavenly material life, but a hellish afterlife, as so perpetuated by religion?
Lucifer would be around nudging me. No invocation needed, his name more than enough to heighten the feel of my own aura being stretched, as felt through a push in my cranium. But, I'm not looking for heaven, already found hell, where I was unclear what Lucifer would have for me, what he would want from me in exchange. In fact, I had asked as such while watching the series "Lucifer", only to hear the response "companionship". My investigative monkey-mind went through an analysis, what if Lucifer want's me to be his companion "for life", like he want's ownership of my consciousness, like Pauline Jesus. He rebuts, and has me move away from the monkey-mind and feel what the word "companion" feels like, like "compadre", or even "compassion". As Asenath Mason has described, a pact with Lucifer is essentially a pact with your own shadow self. Such makes significant sense, where should an adept dabble in the deeper aspects of the subconscious, you need a guide whose been there and done that. In other words, don't dabble, unless you have an initiator and guides to help you maintain and harness the lower animal self, the Beast. That's more than enough, I'm all in with this working, to let that feeling in my cranium, that current to come flooding through.
To connect with this current, I chose the work product of the Temple of Ascending Flame, as I have found the writings of Asenath Mason to be quite articulate in assessing my numerous questions. The philosophy that she has presented is on point, as the matter is well-researched, and these are actual adepts who use such sigils and invocations. I open the door to my subconscious by and through Umma Tiamat, giving Her blessings as She is a current that can bring the calm of the void. By and through sigils and invocations, I embark in allowing the Luciferian current to flood my consciousness and central nervous system, prepared to meet the worst, since this is none other than the devil of our stories, Lucifer himself. In addition, I will do either Bentinho or Mooji meditations prior (and sometimes after), to ensure clarity of consciousness, where such removes the need for numerous external rituals. Guru brings you to Stillness.
The vibration of my surrounding temple-bedroom drastically increased. I can feel a current flush through my room, increasing the intensity as if on a potent energy drink. Fear slightly arises as I remember the Demon-Gods of Umma Tiamat, but I'm reminded to stay in "divine presence". It's time, not to meet my maker, but the Western destroyer. As this was post Babalon (Binah) in attempting to continue to move upward on the tree of life, I was provided with imagery of winds and desolate cities, an environmental apocalypse. In moving up the tree, this would be the continued removal of all forms. Babalon (Binah) would be the "lust/love for life", where without such, you have decaying ruins leading to the formless potential (Kether). As I have found last halloween, horror movies lack significant intimidation, as fear seams to have drastically subsided in my vessel. In addition, horror movies are not scary when you cheer for the goblins, as I found when I watched "The VVItch". Therefore, the desolate scenario was not only "over-done" thanks to our media, but it was now time to stop lingering about and focusing on the main attraction. Lucifer himself did not look much different than the unmasked Lucifer as shown on the Netflix series, though, such is my monkey-mind's interpretation, and this was only a mask he has chosen for this working. Unlike the show characters intimidated by the real face of Lucifer, as a fan of oddities, at a glance of Lucifer's face my inner-child yelps with a "cool" giving the room a "Monster's Inc." (Disney/Pixar) feel. That feeling of excitement was quickly replaced with thoughts of "he's here, but I forgot to do an intent, oh shit, what do I say to him?". The desolate scenes are gone where it's just Lucifer and myself, in my little bedroom gazing eye to eye, where I'm left wondering, "what do I do?". Lucifer responds.
Feeling the intensity of his current pushing my aura, I take notice that the current isn't actually "wrathful" as I would expect, though intense. I'm reminded of "companion" as I felt the feeling of finding a long-lost friend, where to pull me out of my shock, Lucifer says to me, "how about we consecrate your bedroom temple to the Goddess?". My bedroom has been my ashram, where the walls are decorated with framed artwork of Goddess' that I hold dear to me. My bedroom hallway entry holds a large print of Mary Magdalene (Georges De La Tour), where my bedroom houses my altar as this room is my meditation space. It's where the magick happens literally, sadly not metaphorically. Beloved Kali is the centerpiece of course, where She is surrounded by Her Team by and through properly blessed (prana-pratishta) amulets. My bedroom walls are covered in artwork. The Eastern wall holds a large bamboo print of Goddess Kwan Yin, the Southern wall holds a large print of Chinnamasta and a Yab/Yum Tibetan Thangka, the Western wall holds two conflicting pictures of the veiled Goddess through Nicholas Roerich's "Mother of the World" and Daniel Mirante's "Chanting Down Babylon", the Northern wall holds the main altar surrounded by two paintings I picked up from a local artist named Jorge Luis while visiting Trinidad, Cuba of the Orishas, Osun and Yemaya. For those stuck in cultural egoic-identity, I didn't choose the Orishas, they chose me, which really is a past-life connection.
Lucifer had me cleaning my room and moving altar pieces around for better energetic flow. In addition, though I am still quite new to Nordic practices, in the past, Lys Campbell (Dynamic Intention) activated my connection to the Goddesses as found in Doreen Virtues Goddess Deck, where that deck now has a heavy loving feel when I hold it in my hands. Freya is found in that deck, and she's been quite comfortable with me, where I am continuing to realize how much she protects my space and practice. Last year, I had managed to find a 1000 A.D. Odin amulet pendant in the shape of an axe, and months later, found a Freya wooden doll that matched quite well. Nonetheless, it wasn't until this Lucifer working, that Lucifer had me create a special corner for Freya who now holds and protects my Western Grimoires. Protects me, in having those Grimoires around, I should clarify.
The feel of my home has been different from the outside world, where I can feel my energy field collapse inward when I step out of the house. In addition, I had noticed a slight increase in the feel between my bedroom and mere few feet away of the living room beginning last year or prior. But after this working, the feel of my bedroom is significantly different, vibrant, sleep can be difficult sometimes. There are times where I have been exhausted in the living room where I will move to the bedroom for a nap, but I would be unable to sleep as I would begin to feel energized and wide awake, only to have it oscillate again when I return to the living room. Nonetheless, this is not what I was expecting from Lucifer.
It could be due to the masks that I'm shown, or it could be the significant work I've done in moving away from my monkey-mind for "I Am", where I feel like I'm progressing down the tree of life as compared to other adepts who climb the tree of life. I've already had experiences of the no-mind spaciousness, sometimes described as a void, so Lucifer feels more like a companion, with Beloved Kali as my initiator and guide. Nonetheless, Lucifer has shown me why a guide is required. As I have had trouble sticking up for myself, working on the Beast has been phenomenal in helping me have the courage to get things off of my chest (high heart and throat) and do it with some power. However, as I have had many issues with my narcissistic family, particularly their incessant need that I appear and present my good Sagittarius nature for their show (fool) and egoic-inflation, all the while Kali Ma inside of me can feel all their parasitic energy as I have told my family "I'm not your prostitute", the Beast in me has only increased, where Lucifer has held me back by and through flushing those emotions out of me giving me a "care-free" attitude to properly assess my mode of conduct. He brought me back to "divine presence" in the heat of the moment. Hence, the title, Lord of the Beasts. I'm quite happy to have this essence, this liberating current, in my life to help me walk this path in harmony with a compassionate ally. For the haters, just remember, "There is None Wronging The Serpents Cult!".
Global Religious Syncretism to Understand Ascension; Just Another Nimrod Giving You the Blueprints to Rebuild THE Tower of Babel
When many perceive Hinduism, instead of being understood as many different schools and systems which may or may not stem from the actual Vedic literature tradition, most (including Hindus) have a general idea of what most likely was a Vaishnava (white-washing) attempt to synchronize many different schools. Hence, to most individuals not taking a proper historical approach to how Hinduism has evolved, Hinduism is essentially summed up with the Shakti Energy manifesting under the Divine Will of Brahma (Generator, Cultural Patriarch), Vishnu (Operator, Harmony, Self-Actualization), and Siva (Destroyer), or the G-O-D model.
It is interesting to note that this division is also expressed in the Abrahamic traditions with Abraham (Cultural Patriarch), Jesus (Harmony-Self Actualization), and Allah (Return to Formless, Inner-World represented by Tantriks as the Moon). Nonetheless, because the western world is playing the video game system by and through their belief systems of duality, of extremes of heaven and hell, good and evil, angels and demons, such energies are expressed in drastic measures by such traditions as evidenced by World War II, with an energy that may be too attached to samsara in building of culture and civilization meeting an energy that is on the extreme ends of disrupting samsara with Shiva represented as the Swastika moving at Thors aggressive speed as the Central Black Sun. It is important to note that the Star of David (Tantrik Merkaba) is not an ancient symbol of Judaism where I'm unaware of the chakra rainbow "lightbody" in Judaism as would be better expressed with Jesus, whereas Nazis and Hindus have used the title nobility (Aryan), and the word "swastika" is Sanskrit. However, Qabalists who attain Kether are the same as Hindu yogis who attain Brahman, true nobility as taught by the Naga/Dragons such as Patanjali, a huge difference between calling one chosen or special under a bloodline caste-system.
In correlating Jesus with the Vishnu oversoul, I would perceive the first part of Jesus' life at the adept stage of Rama-Ravana of the Hindu Ramayana. Most important is Jesus in the Judea Desert, same as Siddharta Gautama, or Mohammed, the human adepts of consciousness-spirit ascension in material density. As Mooji Baba has drilled into me, it is best that the adept anchor in "I Am" emptiness of an unclouded mind in the moment, so the soul-expression can flow free of egoic-monkey mind blockages. Hence, the wannabe spiritual teacher needs to drop the ego, before they "write the book". Therefore, as was the case with Mohammed, Siddharta Gautama, and Jesus before he officially began teaching instead of forging his wits debating, like being in an "isolation tank" as designed by the mystic and neuro-scientist John C. Lily, these individuals set off to drop the monkey-mind projections that deter us away from the present moment. Moreover, they needed to move beyond basic magickal-siddhi-psychic abilities, such as healing, fortune telling, raising the dead (a Tantrik practice as well), in order to achieve their own fullness of the emptiness of Self. No more need to source anything from the external world, as the kingdom (Kether-Brahman) of heaven is found within. Post Self-Realization would be Jesus' teaching/transmission stage, or Self-Actualization that would be akin to Rama's succeeding lifetime as the playful Krishna.
The deep inner work of bringing awareness deep into one's own subconscious and our collective subconscious during the stages of the adept in "isolation", has the effect of drawing out harsh energies, or wrathful, which can deter an adept through material temptations. Such is meant to be transcended, not fought, hence, the path of desire to get over your cravings is also a valid path. Nonetheless, as with Jesus who was tempted by the Devi(l), or Siddharta who was tempted by Maya (his own delusions), groups such as Luciferians and Tantriks understand the deep dark subconscious work at play, and in embracing the trident as a Hero, the adept must use their own Divine Will of the "I Am" presence to overcome their egoic obstacles, or get lost in maya or the sitra ahra. The backlash of the egoic tendencies, felt as extreme depressive times as harsh energies that flush out of one's energy and physical bodies, is a process during the ascension coined by the Catholic monk, St. John of the Cross, as the "Dark Night of the Soul". Just as Rama in the Ramayana had to face his own issues regarding infidelity, so did Ravana also have to overcome his egoic-issues of his pride, both adepts of the Formless Shiva. In killing a Brahman, such as Ravana, the only way for a Hindu to repent is to take on the practice that Brahma could not handle, the fifth (5th) head of Aghori Shiva (Rudra-Howler/Anger/Wrath). Therefore, it appears Rama had to walk a particular path as an adept as part of his ascension process to incarnate as the height of Mt. Meru (Sodashi) as Sri Krishna, who simply played with a child-like manner all throughout his story.
Hindus cater to the modern puranic lore, believing the texts to be accurate depictions of ancient times. Whereas the tantras are feared as sorcery manuals, and rightfully so, as the adept is diving deeper into the subconscious post kundalini awakenings. Nonetheless, the story of Krishna is vague, like the actual story of Jesus in light of the hidden (essenes) as depicted in the significantly more accurate texts of the Nag Hammadi and Dead Sea Scrolls that predate the time of Jesus, as opposed to the Creed of Nicea edit three hundred plus (300+) years after Jesus. Such groups were killed off by the new Church as heretics for a new "creed" and hence, a new authority/monarchy, showing discrepancies on the truth of the historical Jesus. Krishna was most likely the Hercules (Hari Kaula) the Greeks wrote home about, during the time of Alexander the Great, but as time moves on, stories are altered and shift, and deities are often synchronized, where historical Krishna may also fall under certain discrepancies. Nonetheless, the philosophy and techniques were provided in these stories, for the adept to reach our religious mystical truths and realize our inherent Krishna-Christ Consciousness, the God-Consciousness which comes after the Void of a close-eyed Brahma (ego). The proper "Chose Ones" or "Brahmins", are the accomplished adepts that can guide other adepts to the Krishna-Christ Consciousness (God), which is often symbolized by a peacock feather.
As Shiva represents pure spirit or consciousness who is often in meditation away from the material, his son Kartikeya represents insurance for those lost in samsara, as having anti-matter or Anti-Christ (Sanat Kumara) qualities to move consciousness away from the material realms back to the Void (Ain Soph Aur+). Such anti-matter is expressed as a psychological undoing of the adept, where the adept is forced to question, inquire, dissolve, programmed psychological conditioning arising from holding onto numerous lifetimes. To dissolve such mental programming allows adepts to see wider and differ perspectives, often represented by the third-eye symbolized by the peacock feather. To see wider and differ perspectives also negates harsh judgment as compassion is naturally introduced, where the saint cannot judge the sinner as the saint will understand and perceive a wider perspective. Nonetheless, such practices may be externally manifested, with rituals often deemed extreme for mainstream Brahmanic or Abrahamic culture, as found through tribal Katikeya practices in addition to the Yezidi Peacock Angel holding exactly the same archetype. The Yezidi Peacock Angel, Melek Taus, is held in line with Devil worship by the neighboring angelic traditions, where Melek Taus, like Lucifer, is mistaken for remaining as "fallen". Such symbols of the peacock archetype all correlate with Kartikeya (Sanat Kumara), Melek Taus, and even Krishna as Krishna went against the religion of his day moving his people away from the worship of Indra, a Vedic deity who was originally superior to Vishnu, implying evolution through a new age (yuga). Jesus similarly followed in this path, as the neighboring Jewish groups of Pharisees and Sadducees conflicted with Jesus, and were actually unaware of Jesus' real practices, lineage, traditions, as his group was hidden (essene). Nonetheless, the path of deconditioning and deconstructing one's psychology, particularly the subconscious (qliphoth) the deeper an adept is willing to go, is a necessary step in returning the adept back before the western notion of "fall of man", as represented by the seven (7) sephirot below Daath.
The deconstruction of religious programming is found in all Left Hand Path traditions as a way to assist the adept in liberating (moksha) the adept from the addiction of the limited sensory body under the egoic monkey-mind. Liberation, moksha, is to be sought while in the body of the adept to attain ascension back to humanity's original state of yin/yang regarding the feminine/masculine hemispheres of the brain or nadi's, or by integrating the Generator, Operator, Destroyer aspects within the adept. Nonetheless, as what comes with power (Siddhis), comes responsibility, and many adepts who remain attached to samsara may not awaken to samsara and may continually choose egoic-addictions leading down the qabalist tree of life pre-ascension, instead of upwards. Tantrik and Qliphotic practices, without Self-Realization of the "I Am" presence, can lead the adept into denser dualities creating harsher polarized lessons, or worse, insanity for the practitioner of the sitra ahra.
To continue the ascension and move the adept out of the video game of Generator, Operator, Destroyer, also known as the Wheel of Samsara, Saivism presents two (2) additional figures, Maheshwara (deluder, brings the adept into the wheel of samsara), and Sadashiva (liberator from samsara). The five (5) heads holds archetype superiority to the four (4) heads of Brahma, as Brahma was unable to handle the fifth (5th) teachings, most likely presented to Sanat Kumara or the Aghori tradition of moving beyond the psychological conditioning of duality. For traditional Brahmins, it is important to note that Sati-Parvati needed to leave the Brahmanic tradition, to practice something "hidden" that was opposed (Satan) by Brahma and his lineage, to gain enlightenment. The beginning of enlightenment as defined by the Saivas as Turiya, the state of being awake in the three (3) states of consciousness (awake, sleep, deep sleep). The state of being awake is realized through Self-Realization felt during the emptiness of lingering in "I Am", where the adept simply lets as much go mentally and emotionally as possible, usually through tools such as breath-work, mantra, kriya, etc. The clarity of the moment brings with it gifts known as Siddhis, and the true spiritual practice will bring the adept closer to clarity as they investigate the "I Am". Sadashiva, as four (4) heads facing the four (4) corners and one (1) head facing upward represents the adept moving upward in spirit vibration as high as the adept can achieve, with his son Kartikeya being six (6) heads will assist in grounding such vibrations in material density. Hence, while aiming higher, Sadashiva teaches us the one true spiritual practice to acheive enlightenment, which is to simply "let go". Let go, not just all of your negative traits as deemed by the adepts monkey-mind, but the positive one's as well as a way to move beyond the monkey-mind for the flow of higher consciousness, holy spirit. In fact, the highest form of spirituality is to let go of everything that your consciousness can perceive, or untangle the attachment we have to transient existences including material worlds and imaginary. Enlightenment is to "lighten up" by "letting go". The direct path of such has been through the self-inquiry of Advaita Vedanta, where the adept can bypass all other techniques for a Self-Realized individual to help guide and transmit the states of "no mind" as Vivekananda has described as Samadhi.
These practices of anchoring in higher vibrations, or more spirit-consciousness with less attachment to samsara, often pushes the adept into the Dark Night of the Soul to be forged like a Phoenix. The accomplished adept can continue on their typical egoic-role and agenda, though from an expanded k(g)nowing, or through the use of Left Hand Practices such as Tantra or Luciferianism to bring higher consciousness (Void above the Light) back into the lower density, like the archetype of Kartikeya. As esoteric adepts have found, initiators and guides of our own subconscious train the adept to master harnessing such consciousness, where many have argued and have shown that the Divine Mother's (Binah) permission is necessary to harness such potential in lower density. Tantra by definition means to "weave" or "loom", like the Arachnid Spider Goddess (Binah) weaving her creation, where Tantra was a system to bring yogic tools together to bring higher consciousness back down into the human animal vessel. Not all Self-Realized masters practice this, as they realize the adept is simply becoming a magickan within the video game.
In summation, in order for the global teachers to achieve ascension, teachers such as Jesus offered humanity glimpses on how the "children of God" can mature into adulthood and do all the things he has done and so much more. Relaxing the conditioned monkey-mind in order to bring further clarity in the moment is the process of Self-Discovery where the adept will investigate their own consciousness as the "observer"-awareness and the "observed" external world (including the body and internal biological structure, thoughts, and emotions), where the adept separates the "Observer" and "Observed" and investigates the "Observer" and attempts to realize the root of the "Observer" as I would currently express as the Void (Ain Soph Aur+). Such is the essence of our religions and global shamanic practices, including White/Black magick (both can give you more ego or destroy your delusions for Self Discovery), all of which are attempting to lead the adept further into Self Realization with an attempt to enjoy samsara through Self Actualization, by and through the use of many tools and trades all having somewhat of the same archetypal colorings.
Combining my love of philosophy, mythology, and the occult in pushing my abilities to work with such "permission slips" for my own Ascension. As I have discovered, true power is found in the ability to walk each other home. This is where the inner stairwell becomes the inner sanctuary.
