“Then saith the prophet and slave of the beauteous one: Who am I, and what shall be the sign? So she answered him, bending down, a lambent flame of blue, all-touching, all penetrant, her lovely hands upon the black earth, & her lithe body arched for love, and her soft feet not hurting the little flowers: Thou knowest! And the sign shall be my ecstasy, the consciousness of the continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body.” – Liber AL vel Legis, I:26
“There is neither creation nor destruction,
Neither destiny nor free will,
Neither path nor achievement;
This is the final truth.”
– Sri Ramana Maharshi.
“That which produces bliss should be used in worship since it ravishes the heart” –Tantraloka
“Radiant black storm clouds
expand across the sky of pure awareness.
The peacock of my mind reveals its brilliant colors,
dancing in the bliss of holy expectation.
Kali’s wisdom thunder rumbles
with her power that can level mountains.
The fiery tracery of lightning flashes
forms her wonderful smile of ecstasy.” – Ramprasad Sen
“Let the Word of thy Will be the Truth of the Self!” – Wisdom of S’lba, I:18
I’ve long had a deep interest in Eastern philosophy and Thelema, in particular the Typhonian tradition, which at its foundation is the expansion of awareness, the continuum of consciousness. In addition to Western esoteric traditions, this has led me to initiation in tantrik traditions of Hindu Kaula Shakta and Buddhist lineages, and direct transmission of Dzogchen.
My latest book is The Magickal Union of East and West: The Spiritual Path to New Aeon Tantra. This book is a synthesis of Eastern and Western philosophies that gives tools for self discovery and self actualization in any circumstance, based on my own experience with Thelema, tantra, Ati yoga.
Other works include co-editor of the Thoth Tarot, Astrology & Other Selected Writings of Phyllis Seckler and The Kabbalah, Magick, and Thelema: Selected Writings Volume II , and author of the privately published book Stellar Tantra. I also have Masonic Writings, a collection of essays exploring Freemasonry.
Hiking, trekking, and travel are some of my favourite activites. I enjoy traveling to sacred sites around the world, exploring spiritual practices from many cultures and traditions. Nature is my primal worship, with the crisp air of the Himalayas or the deep forests favored over temples built by hand. Nature and the night sky hold a deep wisdom for us, if only we are willing to open up and experience.
