These are some of the most amazing articles. I have returned to them again and again over the years, and they never cease to inspire me and launch me into new gnostic vistas:
From Michael Staley’s essay The Fool:
“Initiation is not a matter of swallowing wholesale what this, that or the other illustrious person has said at some time or another, but of making it real, of arriving at your own understanding. We take influences from diverse sources, whether it be Grant, Crowley, Spare, Blavatsky, Gurdjieff, Ramana Maharshi – to name but a few – and synthesise their work via the catalyst of our own experience, creating thereby an understanding and a body of work that is intrinsic to us. People who come after us will do likewise, again from a diversity of sources. In this way, knowledge and experience is passed down, and this is one meaning of parampara or spiritual lineage. ”
Could not have expressed it better. This sums up my approach to the Mysteries, and explains the diverse range of influences that have gone into my own work.
The Magickal Union of East & West, The Spiritual Path to New Aeon Tantra explores the fruit of some of this work.
Today I remember Kenneth Grant a great adept and master.
His influence on my own spiritual work is undeniable.
His deep insight and creativity will live on through his voluminous work and legacy.
The 93 Current evolved and matured in new dimensions because of your dedication and inspiration.
Thank you, Frater Aossic. See you Outside the Circles of Time.

Homage to Thee, Prince of Eternity!
Homage to Thee, Prince of Light and Darkness!
Let my soul not be shut in, let my shadow not be fettered;
Let the Way be Open for my soul and for my shadow,
may it see the Great God —
May I look upon my soul and my shadow,
the Divine Heart of the Everlasting Fire of Set!
Within night and darkness, I have come to thee —
I am glorious, I am pure.
May I follow my heart at it’s season of Fire and Night.
My soul is God, my soul is Eternity.
I am the Son of Set, Son of Fire!
I am the Heart of Eternal Set!
I am the Everlasting Fire of Set,
Child of the Radiant Darkness!
