Douglass Rushkoff spoke to Googlers in Mountain View on November 10, 2010 about his book Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age.

About Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age:

"The debate over whether the Net is good or bad for us fills the airwaves and the blogosphere. But for all the heat of claim and counter-claim, the argument is essentially beside the point: It's here; it's everywhere. The real question is, do we direct technology, or do we let ourselves be directed by it and those who have mastered it? "Choose the former," writes Rushkoff, "and you gain access to the control panel of civilization. Choose the latter, and it could be the last real choice you get to make."

In ten chapters, composed of ten "commands" accompanied by original illustrations from comic artist Leland Purvis, Rushkoff provides cyber enthusiasts and technophobes alike with the guidelines to navigate this new universe.

In this spirited, accessible poetics of new media, Rushkoff picks up where Marshall McLuhan left off, helping readers come to recognize programming as the new literacy of the digital age----and as a template through which to see beyond social conventions and power structures that have vexed us for centuries. This is a friendly little book with a big and actionable message."

Quotes & Notes

Whether we call such entities devils, friends, or anything else
makes no difference to their nature, which is fundamentally
opposed to human development towards Divinity. Our gain
would be their loss as it were, and vice versa. The more energy
they can illicitly divert from our spheres of life to their conditions
of existence, the better for them and the worse for us.
Nevertheless they would obtain nothing whatever from us unless
we allowed ourselves to be so depleted by one way of consent or
another. Humanity always invites its own destruction upon itself.
I t i s AS WE W I L L .

There is nothing wrong with the Plan for Perfection except
our idiotic and intentional interference with it, for which none
are to blame but ourselves. It is useless and pointless to dwell
on and recriminate about past guilts and responsibilities for our
present predicaments
Those able to work the Cosmic Wheel of Life must do so with
all their might while the rest follow as they may—or Will. The
higher we evolve, the more discriminative our Will becomes, and
the less likely are we to deal with Anti-Cosmics except as agents
for disposal of our imperfectibles, which is the proper way to
treat them.

If we persist in
treating Anti-Cosmic entities as favoured friends and welcome
acquaintances, we shall thoroughly deserve the degrading messes
they make with us, since this is their natural propensity and
they cannot do otherwise. We could—and should.

Fake
'Black Masses' with real copulation are produced for sufficient
money inducements paid over by wealthy degenerates.

Although
such spectacles must certainly attract ill-intentioned Inner entities
as well as human ones in physical bodies, there cannot be maximum
energy-exchanges between Outer and Inner Dimensions
unless the operators are Initiated to a degree which enables them
to make actual power-contacts on very deep levels. This would
be most unlikely in the case of mere money-grabbing imitators,
though these can work quite enough serious harm on their own
account without assistance from experts.

These Dark ones however, are no happier in conditions which
might expose them to direct Light, than the Shining Ones enjoy
existing in conditions of Chaos and obscurity

If we analyse the symbology of the 'White' Mass even casually,

How
much Light is lost from sheer laziness?


Such is the Legend attached to the Mysteries Of Light. An
Original Radiance impinging upon living matter developing on
Earth. It impacted on all, but only a certain type reacted with
it in such a way as to evolve towards it according to its inherent
nature and the Image that Radiance impressed into the
receptive reproductory system of cells. That Life-type of course
became Man, and it is reputed that this Original Image is in
some way imprinted into human blood, not so much physically,
but as a spiritual content.

Much as selected individuals in modern times put their lives at
risk to link us with other Life through Outer Space, so did the
old Divine Kings offer their lives in the exploration of Inner
Space and Spiritual Dimensions to ensure an Immortal Heritage
for those humans capable of accepting it.

In the light of modern information,
it is perhaps interesting to note the hallucgenic properties
of alcohol in the wine, and ergot, or L.S.D. in the bread,
which should always be made from rye.

In proper combination
the original forms of these should control each other, leaving the
way between them clear for the superimposition of consciousness
from Inner Intelligence.

It goes A S I T W I L L . T h e
initial 'aided take-off' was simply for convenience of achieving
separation from the gravity-field tending to hold consciousness
among earth conditions. Once those have been transcended,
Inner adventure becomes a simpler affair.

If Telesmic

Whether
they appeared to seers, made themselves known in dreams, or
produced what is now called 'psychic phenomena', their human

associates were undoubtedly convinced of their extended existence
independently of the physical framework they had seen
sacrificed with their own eyes.

People will believe WHAT THEY WILL, but they prefer it

-----------------------------------------------

So a good question for anyone to ask themselves, is whether
or not the human leaders or focal points of any Group are worth
associating with. Are they in fact intelligent, sincere, trustworthy,
beneficent, and worthwhile Souls? Do they have reliable qualities
of leadership, or do they not?

If contact with the genuine Mysteries is sought for lesser
reasons, such as sheer curiosity, hope of material advantages,
possession of undeserved powers, or unjustified authority and
satisfaction of desires regardless of results, they will evade every
attempt at entry, and the invader will encounter just what he
merits. Deception, fraud, waste of time and money, misdirection,
and in fact a loss of valuable life-energy altogether, if not worse.
This is no exaggeration, but a plain and straightforward statement.
The world has many Souls in it who complain bitterly
about how earnestly they sought 'Truth' in the Mysteries and
found nothing but falsity and maltreatment from charlatans and
credulous cranks
No doubt at all they did experience such unhappy
encounters—but—were they really innocent victims, or
self-deceived, ignorant fools? They must face both possibilities
in the end, and progress past them through the Portals leading
to Light beyond either state.

CHAPTER IX
T H E S I G N I F I C A N C E OF M A G I C I N A N U C L E A R A G E

If anyone asks what is the use of Magic in the twentieth century,
the proper reply is that it has the same use as in any other era,
for intentional and intelligent work with metaphysical energies
on Inner causative levels of consciousness.

This age needs real Magic far more than the
average mortal might suppose, and the sooner the Sacred
Mysteries become available in modern manner to those of mankind
on Earth with sufficient spiritual stature to safeguard them,
the better it will be for us all.

We have reached our present state of evolution today because
of the 'Light-Patterns' our ancestors set up long ago which
have led us here along those lines. Should we be reaching the
Moon physically now, if they had not reached for it symbolically
in their rituals on the hill-tops? What relationship does a cyclotron
bear to the circling dances around the central fires of primitive
people? Would we have aircraft unless the behaviour and
nature of birds had been imitated in old initiations?

By establishing their Rite-Patterns, and extending their awareness
by Magical methods into a much more advanced condition
of Consciousness than their ordinary human levels, the early
Initiates of the Inner Mysteries set the spiritual seeds which are
even now only just beginning to show signs of flowering and
fruiting among us, the scarce-worthy inheritors of a Tradition
we would be utter fools to abandon.

The very least we might do
is to re-establish the modern equivalents of those Rites with
acceptable practices based on the Original Patterns. This would
be not only for our own sakes, but particularly for our descendents—
if indeed we are to have any!
Our Rite-Patterns at present
will eventuate into the realizations of the future, and if we are
to ensure worthwhile spiritual legacies of progressive and peaceful
living towards Perfection, our time to set up those Rite-
Patterns of this vital objective is now, while we still have the
chance.
Why should Magic be especially valuable for such an overwhelmingly
important purpose? Mainly because it affords unique
opportunities for individualizing entities to apply maximum
energies in their own way of their own Wills. This is the especial
secret. What other Systems of behaviour as Beings on any lifelevel
offer such incredible degrees of Inner freedom for each Soul,
with unlimited scope of entity-expansion towards Infinite Ultimation?
Magic is for those Souls who are strong enough and
brave enough to direct their own destinies according to the Will
within them, Otherwise, humans have to be content with whatever
compulsory arrangements are imposed on them by the
manipulators of mankind.

Freedom through the Portals of Perception

Both Systems are dedicated to a
single Cause, the imprisonment of individual Souls in artificial
cages of consciousness constructed around them. As might be
expected, the bulk of human beings on earth are by no means
unwilling victims. They may be as blind as Sampson, but do
they have his legendary strength to break their chains and pull
down the Pillars? More importantly, do they realize they have
such an ability, would they be willing to use it, and could they
build a better Temple if they tried??? Who is wise enough
among us to answer?

Towards wider Awareness


The purpose of Magic in our days is thus the same as it always
was, to allow individually evolving Soul-entities among mankind
a Way ahead to even wider Awareness.

T h e Arts, religion,
philosophies, and suchlike approaches to Inner Dimensions of
Life. The once-open doors from these directions are being
rapidly closed to every sincere seeker of spiritual identity in other
than merely Earth-life. If any activity is likely to lead enterprising
Souls towards genuine Inner Identity, the Communist
System will proscribe it, and the Commercial System will purchase
its controlling interests, if possible. So what Way of Escape
from Earth-bound spiritual slavery remains yet open, and how
long will it be before this becomes too diffcult for the struggling
Souls of Light-seekers to negotiate?

There is no purpose at all in approaching what might be
termed the Magical Mysteries in a sort of crusading spirit and
with even the best intentions of freeing fellow humans from
their state of unenlightenment.

Attempting this will result in
Inner Portals being carefully shut in the enthusiast's face until
T H E SIGNIFICANCE OF MAGIC IN A N U C L E A R A G E 263
he learns more sense. All must find Light for themselves of their
own Will. Light shining from Inside, illuminates everything, but
shone from Outside, only blinds and confuses.
(lol)

T h e Magical Mysteries are emphatically N O T for those Souls
who are unwilling to make any efforts on their own behalf at
evolving towards a higher state of entity than a merely human
existence. Nor are they intended as refuges for eccentrics and
'drop-outs' with nothing to offer except disorganized personal
peculiarities. The genuine Initiate does not parade around in
odd clothing attracting unwanted attention by outrageous behaviour
and strange conversation.

The genuine Initiate does not parade around in
odd clothing attracting unwanted attention by outrageous behaviour
and strange conversation. Beyond perhaps a very few
closely trusted companions, none are likely to have any inkling
of an Initiate's Inner interests or identity. In this world, an
Initiate of Light (or Darkness for that matter) usually appears
as quite an ordinary unspectacular person, engaged with very
mundane affairs, earning a living like everyone else.

By all means let
us smile at medieval methods of concentrating the energies of
Consciousness, itself the most remarkable Energy of all, by the
rather crude contrivances described in 'Grimoires' and elsewhere.

Anyone inclined to suspect the feasibility of this proposition
has only to consider the implications of present day political
propaganda and commercial 'pressurization'. Literally millions
of human beings live, work, and die according to the dictates
of the relatively few nameless individuals responsible for running
these Systems, ostensibly opposed to each other, but actually
coming close to a mutually acceptable agreement as to methods
of 'carving up' future civilizations to suit very private purposes.

Eventually, only well-instructed Initiates may
know the tricks of slipping through the meshes into a far nobler
Way of Life, unless, of course, the sheer unwieldy weight of the
masses breaks through the Systems somewhere, and scores a
Pyrrhic victory for a while, before survivors are rounded up into
other captivities of consciousness.

Authority fears spiritual independence
There is nothing new about all this. Small circles of highly
concentrated consciousness have always produced decisive though
temporary effects over very wide fields of human living. We can
see this in practice wherever we look on any level.


The more enlightened
among those select few, have come to realize that the more
fringe benefits they arrange for the masses they manipulate, the
better is bound to be their own status. Ostensibly, the carrot has
the lead over the whip.

Nevertheless, the common factor feared
most by authoritarian administrations is the entire spiritual independence
of Souls inhabiting their spheres of influence, especially
if such Souls acknowledge an Inner Authority which may
not entirely agree with purely Earthly authorities, and with
which these enquiring Initiated Souls have actually made conscious
contact, mainly through the Magical Mysteries of Light.

This fulfilment of individual freedom as Souls living normally
and naturally in a state or condition of consciousness far beyond
the jurisdiction or dictatorship of any Earth-based authorities,
wherein every entity cosmates with the rest purely because of
their Will towards each other, or a universal Love together, is an
acknowledged aim of the Mysteries of Light

Another
use for Magic in the twentieth, or any other century! A long
time ago it was called 'laying up treasures in Heaven'.

-------------------------------------------------------------


The time and effort spent in working out and setting up basic
Projection-Patterns of Consciousness by means of symbolic Rites,
which contain them and relate them with Inner and Outer Existence
is very far from wasted, nor is it no more than idle wishful
thinking. To the contrary, it is mankind's highest and most
practical method of applying Power to Purpose (or Word with
Will), at the point where Humanity rises its nearest to Divinity,
and therefore stands the best chance of spiritual success, which
may even materialize subsequently in suitable earthly equivalents.

Hilltop Rites by Circles of
Initiates at propitious moments were reliable in old times, and
indeed remain so, though in modern circumstances, even modest
Temple conditions if suitably situated in freedom from disturbance
by inharmonious influences such as noise, bad feelings, etc.,
may be made to serve the Mysteries at any altitude. Still, it would
be most unwise to abandon all opportunities for direct contacts
amid natural conditions, and the Elemental Cross of Sun, Air,
Water, Earth formation, is likely to be our most convenient
power-supply in immediate Inner workings for a very long while
yet.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


The Inner equivalent of Nuclear Energy
Magic might well be defined as a metaphysical means of putting
Power into Practice through a Plan for a Purpose. The fact
T H E SIGNIFICANCE OF MAGIC IN A N U C L E A R A G E 267
that all this takes place in extra-physical Dimensions prior to
projection into material manifestation if intended so, does not
make the process either more or less real than it is. Suppose someone
asked the straightforward question: 'What is this " M a g i c "
aiming at that may be understood from an earthly viewpoint,
and what possible benefits can it bring us?'—how might this
very fair query be answered? Simply by telling the truth, that a
major objective in Magic is the Inner equivalent of Atomic
Energy as it is now called in physical terms, and that what may
be accomplished with this Energy among us in mundane ways
may not only be equalled, but immeasurably surpassed throughout
spiritual Spheres by analogous methods of application.

Initiation is a multi-lifed process of acquiring sufficient spiritual
status and Inner intelligence to evolve Souls capable of
dealing with that incredible Energy as directed by the Controlling
Consciousness we loosely recognize as Divinity. We shall
not achieve this entirely by ourselves, any more than nuclear
energy in its present form was discovered and developed by
human brains alone. The co-operation of conscious entities existing
in other states of Cosmic continuity is needed to suggest our
lines of approach and direct our researches towards the right
quarters. Whether we call those entities 'Archangels', 'Angels',
or any other name matters very little to them. Our symbolic
concepts of them serve as a means of mediating the intellectual
and other influences they direct to us through channels of communication
at present termed 'Magical'. Until these are superseded
we must continue using them, and improving their design.

As to what might be accomplished with nuclear energy on
spiritual levels of life, we may gain some faint ideas of such
possibilities from what we know of nuclear energy on earth in
our days. Once properly controlled and adapted to human needs
via the proper paths and suitable apparatus, this energy is likely
to do for us on earth W H A T W E W I L L , purely in mundane ways.
It will not bring us to life, make us happy, or improve us in ourselves
in any w a y at all. We may expect no more from its earthly
expression than physical facilities.

Just suppose we were able to eliminate all our present bodily
necessities, and simply L I V E in one another's awareness with
an intensity of conscious experience far beyond our modern reach
or even realization. No need to eat, sleep, breathe, excrete, reproduce,
or do anything other than B E W H A T W E W I L L . Our
code of living would b e : 'We Will i t — W e A R E it.' We would,
in fact, live in a condition once termed 'Heaven'. Not only possible,
but absolutely practical with the aid of Spiritual Nuclear
Energy. It would revolutionize our Existence to a barely imaginable
degree, and indeed the Will of Earth and Heaven would
be One.
--------------------------------------------------------------


the meaning of life

-------------------------------------------------------------------

What prevents us from becoming such supersouls? Little else
than our entire incapacity and unsuitability in general for dealing
more than fractionally with the forces needed to energize a
Sphere of Existence wherein entities we might consider supersouls
share their conscious continuum in Cosmos together. On
the Whole, as average humans, we just are not yet ready or fit
for living such an intensified Light-Life, any more than primitive
men were prepared for atom bombs. The same Spiritual Nuclear
Energy that might make conditions of Heaven for us is also
capable of erupting into the most horrible Hells. It all depends
how it is handled, as with any Energy whatever.

Forbidden fruit
How did Nuclear Energy arrive on earth during our generation?
Actually it always was here. We have been reaching out
for it into Inner Existence ever since we got here ourselves, and
modern mathematicians have only continued what the ancient
magicians commenced with their rituals. Those were the first
Symbols of the complicated formulae which have recently placed
the fingertips of mankind in contact with the forbidden fruit
we have been looking for so long.

Atomic Nuclear Energy was suspected in theory for a very long
time before the first trial explosion ever rocked the history of our
planet. This only occurred because the minds and Wills of highly
specialized Souls probed beyond the limits of normal human
consciousness along a Line of Light which led to their objective.
They did this by means of Symbology related throughout itself
by a series of extensions into states of Existence utterly outside
their experience and certainly beyond their personal beliefs as
materialists.

Those scientists did not particularly believe in their concepts
270 INNER TRADITIONS OF MAGIC
because they wanted to, but because they had to in order to
make any progress into conditions of Consciousness previously
unreached from that direction by human explorers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Control before power

As a rule,
humanity makes firstly very faulty and ineffectual contacts with
power-sources, such as Water, Oil, Gas, Electricity, etc., then
steadily improves the methods and mechanisms for relating this
power with human purpose. In the case of Nuclear Energy, the
control-systems had to be adequate in the first place prior to
direct contact with a power which was still theoretical. Otherwise
the experiment could literally have blown up in everyone's faces.
Perhaps this was one of the first times in human history we have
attempted to relate ourselves with Energy in the proper order,
capability of control first, and power last. Eliminate or reduce
error to minimum in terms of physical productions, then link
up with the operative energy so that everything works as it
should. If only we had been as careful and painstaking in spiritual
ways as we were in scientific ones, we should be far more
evolved Souls than we are on the average at present.

The story and difficulties of the mathematicians in search of
their Nuclear Energy Grail to put Heaven and Hell into the
hands of M a n on Earth, is paralleled by that of Magicians seeking
the same Eternal Inner Energy with which the same Mankind
may alter not so much his environmental equipment, but
his actual essential entity itself, which will entirely change not
only conditions of consciousness but the whole of human livingmethods
as well.
This again may result in Heaven or Hell
T H E SIGNIFICANCE OF MAGIC IN A N U C L E A R AGE 271
depending on how it eventuates. Whether in or out of incarnation,
we must eventually decide the issue for ourselves.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Like the mathematicians, the magicians are satisfied that the
Nil-Nuclear Source of Energy can be reached on spiritual levels
just as it may be approached on material ones, and the process
is a similar one either way. Instead of working with mathematical
concepts however, the Magical Initiates use Symbolic procedures
and ritualized formulae involving patterned processes of consciousness
among specific individual Soul-arrangements, relating
mutually for this precise purpose. Where the laboratory scientist
co-relates standard pieces of apparatus, and computerized information
to achieve results, the Initiate of the Mysteries sets up
an equivalent pattern among living entities, incarnate or otherwise,
each co-ordinating with the rest in a Cosmic circuit energized
by the Will of every one. This, at least, is the present
position of the Plan.
It may very well be asked why, if this is the case, we have
not noticed any vast improvement in the nature of mankind
over the last few thousand years, during which the Mysteries
were supposed to be in operation. The answers are all to be
found in our modern parallel of Atomic Power production. Just
what percentage of the whole human race were and are actually
engaged on this project directly? Less than a tiny fraction of one
per cent. T h e same would be true in the case of genuine Initiates
of the Holy Mysteries who might be compared with our nuclear
physicists. A very minute minority concerned with powerproblems
affecting the fate of massed millions. The few braincells
making a decision which will save or lose the life of an
entire body belonging to the being they share in common. A
big job, and an utterly terrible responsibility. We all depend on
the issue. The atomic scientists' main concern was and is to find
just what is best fitted to contain and convey the Power they
have reached, so that it will serve the human race. They know
quite well what will happen otherwise.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The spiritual 'scientists' are presented with exactly the same
problem on another scale. Their concern is to discover which
species of human, or arrangement of Souls, may best bear and
distribute the incredible Energy obtainable from the spiritual
equivalent of the Nil-Nucleus Itself. Do such people exist on
earth? Are there sufficient of them? Will they arrange them272
INNER TRADITIONS OF MAGIC
selves? Can they carry the Energy safely? Even if this is possible,
how far may others be damaged ? An endless list of such questions
constantly confront the Directors behind what might be
called the 'Cosmic Control Commission'. Even their Intelligence
has its limits, and must be supplemented by cautious advances
in the experimental field.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are still living in the aftermath, and attempting
to re-arrange the necessary integers for the next experiment
in such a way that a similar or worse mishap will not follow.
Can we succeed? Events alone will ultimately show.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A circuit of human Souls
There are many who sincerely believe that another great
Avatar, Messiah, or Christ is imminent on earth. This would
actually be the greatest risk we might encounter as an entire
T H E SIGNIFICANCE OF MAGIC IN A N U C L E A R AGE 273
life-species. Should the human race be exposed to the radiance
from such an Energy-Particle-Personification while we are in
our present unstable condition, the results might be disastrous
beyond belief. We need stabilization and cosmation, rather than
Impact from an Entitised-Energy more than likely to push us
past critical mass into the most Soul-destroying explosion ever
known on earth. Direct contact with Divine Energy suddenly
striking an unprepared humanity would just about write 'Paid
in Full' across our long-standing account with Destiny.

Direct contact with Divine Energy suddenly
striking an unprepared humanity would just about write 'Paid
in Full' across our long-standing account with Destiny.
What is needed on Earth this time is a thoroughly reliable
apparatus and circuit arrangement of human Souls capable of
containing and distributing the Energy from Its Source so that
it should benefit all in major ways, and harm none except in
very minor ones through their own faults.

At the moment this
is asking an impossibility, but there is no reason why it should not
be perfectly practical in the forseeable future—if enough 'John
the Baptists' with high qualities are forthcoming to 'prepare the
Paths and make straight the Ways', or in our modern terms
design the circuit and lay out the components accordingly. Even
though we have no Herods, these fore-runners are still likely
to behead each other if we may judge from some of the selfadvertised
samples running around in their small circles like
headless hens. The genuine article will have to do better than
that!
-----------

Associative Cosmation
Instead of waiting around hopelessly and helplessly for some
Soul-shattering Messiah to come sailing out of the clouds formed
from our wishful thinking, the immediate responsibility of every
awakening entity on earth is to commence associable cosmation
first and foremost in themselves, and then with other suitable
Souls. The worst mistake would be to rush into unstable Group
formations purely for the sake of company. Unless a Group is
able to balance itself on Cosmic principles, it will injure all its
members in the long run. Everyone is bound to fit in somewhere,
and it is a question of finding a proper place with the proper
people. Should this not be available on earthly levels, individuals
would be well advised to balance themselves as such, and seek
complementation Inwardly. Remaining in unhappy harness with
18—ITOM »
274 INNER TRADITIONS OF MAGIC
inharmonious Circle companions is more than stupid—it is positively
dangerous to all.
If a really reliable set of Circles can be established among
humans on earth, and if again these can be connected Inwardly
with each other so as to form a circuit capable of dealing with,
and dispensing Energy of a truly Divine nature from Its Source,
then indeed a suitable 'Avatar' may close the contact between
that Source and Circuit through the mediation of their own
Being. On this next occasion, it is most unlikely to be done in any
very public or spectacular way, in the full glare of T.V. lights
and a howling mob of press photographers all set to record the
next miracle.

In fact the personification of the Avatar among humans might
not be known by the general public during their Earth life-time
at all, but only to those entirely trustworthy few who are able to
absorb the 'contact-shock', and communicate its effects through
prepared and reliable channels. It may be wondered in that case,
how the rest of humanity would ever know such a Soul had
reached Earth. They would discover this eventually, because
strange things would happen to human nature itself all over the
world rather than in any particular locality. Without quite knowing
why, humans would feel well-disposed to one another, avarice
and greed lose its hold on them, warfare become unthinkable,
and people would discover they wanted each other far more
than things they made to buy and sell. Persons would become
much more valuable than property, and their health and happiness
of greater importance than what they possessed or performed.
Money, social position, and all the things we consider
so vital at present, would cease to mean very much as distinctions.
Our sense of values would most certainly begin to alter
very drastically, its focus shifting noticeably away from material
towards spiritual standards. Altogether, an almost dramatic easing
of tension would be experienced practically all over the world,
and a relaxed, happy, near-holiday atmosphere 'come over'
millions of people.
No one, except those 'in the know' would be able to account
for such beneficial and remarkable changes in the basic structure
of human nature as a whole over the course of only a few generations.
Perhaps they would not learn the real reason for a long
while, until it reached them quite naturally in their own lives.

Quotes & Notes

With sufficient persistence, we are practically unified with the
mantras throughout our entire being.

Given enough time, the mantram is theoretically
capable of achieving effects with human consciousness which
might well be considered magical, and of a higher order than
those attributable to auto-suggestion or repeated self-admonitions.

How to intone a Mantram

Suppose we are trying to relate ourselves with the Elements of
Air and Fire in a pleasant way. A useful mantra could b e : 'I
will feel fresh and light

With practice, words can be used as keys
to unlock an entire Universe which might otherwise remain unknown
to us as an actuality of experience. That is the true Magic
of words.

Few human ritual workers are
able to switch from one state of consciousness to another in the
split fraction of a second.

Nevertheless,
the balance of silence with utterance is of considerable significance.

Eventually, after maybe only a few moments, there will be a
sense of a returning answer, and a concept will emerge from
Within as an unspecified impression rapidly taking shape and
character until it names itself with a definite verbal description.
Once this happens, it must be imagined as becoming louder and
louder with an insistence that leaves no room for anything else
in the forefront of the mind. There must be only one way to get
it out of the mind—by giving birth to it with the mouth as an
utterance. This should be duly done with all the sense of a
deliverance, and the word

of inadequate means in ourselves to express what we receive in
better terms. All that any human can do is to offer what he has
in himself for use by the Higher Intelligence contacting him
Within. The better we provide ourselves with Inner facilities,
the better will be the type of response we elicit.

Other workers might try the Circle-Cross plan, or whatever
their basic Symbol suggests

With practice, reliable channels of
communication should be established between the human and
Divine levels of consciousness contacting each other through
individual Initiates, and direct information should be obtainable
through those channels in terms of comprehensible words in
human language.

Hence
the 'Magic Words' peculiar to any particular Initiate or Group
may be of no value to others unless they are able to attach a
similar spiritual significance to them.


As yet, the Inner speech of Humanity
is comparable to the early attempts of an infant to communicate
with its elders, but contact between the differing types of consciousness
is definitely established per se, and the rest is a routine
matter of development through the Time-Space-Event Circles.

One major complaint from would-be
ritualists who are unaffiliated with any particular organized
Group within the Mysteries, is that no reliable Rites are published
for them to perform. Either they are faced with medieval rubbish,
or very dubious amateur concoctions with a limited sale
and as little practicality.

Once the basic Plan i s drawn up, i t only remains to meditate on
i t sufficiently, and decide what type of ritual act or intention
fits best where, having regard to the overall purpose in mind.

Symbolic Design

Everyone ritualizes according to their
own spiritual, ethical, and educational abilities and status. By
their Rites are these recognized, and the higher the standard and
quality of a n y Rite, the greater demands will it make on those
who would practice it.

To avoid being over-censorious, or self-righteous, it is well
to remember that no human being is able to work any kind of
Rite beyond the scope of his own individual abilities and state
of development (or 'Degree') upon the Inner Path

Direction of intention
A few
words, a gesture, or a mutely offered prayer will do

Even a feather in the East for Air, a lighted candle in
the South for Fire, a glass of water in the West, and a flower pot
with a growing plant for Earth in the North are valid Symbols.
Anything definitely linking the consciousness of the operator
with its objective is suitable, but naturally the more care and
consideration has been devoted to any Symbol, the more useful
i t will prove.

T h e y
iga INNER TRADITIONS OF MAGIC
can be light blue for Air, yellow for Fire, dark blue or green for
Water, and brown or black for Earth. A pleasing arrangement
is that of the Light spectrum, blue being for first light of D a w n at
East, yellow for the sun at Noon in the South, red for sunset in
the West, and black for Night in the North.

The simplest Lights are
coloured candles, bui more beautiful effects are to be had with
properly coloured glasses.

Music
The real Symbols exist in
the consciousness anyway, and their physical counterparts are
only pegs to hang an image around

while quieter and more delicate background
music is recommended for the meditational phase unless silence
is required here.

One main advantage is that removal 01
'donkey-work' or sheer mechanics from the Rite, leaves
participants with much greater Inner scope and freedom of
experience. Nevertheless, this appears applicable to already
expert ritualists alone. Beginners should still learn the hard way
of practical performance, before they attempt launching themselves
into Inner Dimensions without having acquired autostability
therein.

The dance-sequence

There should always be some degree of flexibility
in every Rite which the ritualists can set for themselves
according to requirements, and dance-sequences, meditations,
circle-chants, and special invocations are good opportunities
for this factor.

There should also and most importantly b e an ' X ' , or 'random'
factor provided for in Rites, whereby the Unknown Entity or
representative of Divine Energy may 'link in' according to Its
own Will. The most usual way of doing this i s by means of the
hushes and silences between sonic passages, but it is also
(though less commonly) introduced by what is known as the
'Holy Hiatus'.

To some extent, the ' X ' contacts are like the secret 'high
speed' codes transmitted at such a rate that to ordinary ears
only a rapid screech is received. Recorded on tape, and slowed
down many times, a long and intelligible message in clear
language i s heard. In the same way, the briefest 'flash' received
during a Rite (or otherwise) from Inner Intelligences, will
probably prove sufficient to enlighten our earthly lives for
quite a while. That is why they are so well worth waiting for,
and working to obtain.
If we perform the basic tasks of our necessary meditations and
exercises, we shall build up inside ourselves the necessary
mechanisms for translating the 'high-speed' contacts of coded
consciousness from Inner Dimensions into terms we can deal
with on our ordinary levels of life. Although rituals are by no
means the only way of making these contacts, they have certainly
been a well tried and established system for many centuries
past, and with an even greater future potential.

These requisites have nothing at all to do with expensive
equipment, wonderful robes, lavishly decorated Temples, and
suchlike outer trappings, Those luxuries will no more guarantee
ritual competence than valuable tools and materials will
produce skilled craftsmen by themselves. A ritual does not
consist of showing off collections of arcane curiosa, but in
actual Inner behaviour symbolically related with Energies and
Entities beyond the average range of human awareness.

A Rule is not a Code of Ethics (which all members of Groups
or Orders are supposed to have anyway before they associate
together,) but a Code of Conduct aimed to further the Common
Cause of such an association
211


No amount of intellectual reasoning, argument, critical calculations,
or objective approaches from purely human sources
of information, will be the slightest use in solving the Sphinx's
riddle: 'What am I ? '
One might as well eliminate the entire earth by denial
of its very being, rather than demonstrate the presence of
Divinity by any amount of discussion. Every one of us must
find our own Faith-Fundamentals for ourselves. No one can
put these into anyone else any more than they can eat, sleep,
think, or live for that other person.
Our Basic Beliefs of Being
RITUAL EST THE LIFE OF AN INITIATE 221
are a condition we Become, just as we are born into a physical
body which no other human completely shares with us while we
animate it. We are built on a 'Be-it-Yourself basis which is the
true 'Philosopher's Stone' of our establishment

Our 'Souls' are not immortal of themselves. Nothing but Pure
Spirit is really Immortal.
219


The old Ignis Natura
Renovata Integra formula was a good general outline of the regenerative
circuitry responsible for Creation as a Whole.

Whether or not they are associated with any particular
Group is of relative unimportance here. What matters is that
they should relate themselves individually with the Cosmic Cycles
by means of some suitable Time-Space-Event programme. In
olden times this was a simple matter with all the various festivals,
fastings, seasonal events, and other activities connected with the
Mysteries. Nowadays only the tattered remains of these are yet
with us, and the preoccupations of material life threaten even
those vestiges.

Initiates of olden days met with reflections of Divine Energy
in themselves wherever they looked in the Mirror of Nature.
Thunder echoed Inner voices, rain told them of freshness and
fertility, stones spoke to them of endurance and firmness. Every
creature had its own message, lions of strength and magnificence,
foxes of cunning, birds of aspirations and freedom, fishes of darting
thoughts and quests in all directions. Each and every lifesymbol
in the Outer world presented an Inner meaning of its
own which helped to mould the Soul of Man for what this has
become today.
In place of natural world-components, we have manufactured
artificial ones. Can these produce the same or better effects in
us on Spiritual levels as their natural predecessors? How can
our Souls react with modern machinery and methods in such a
way as to evolve towards Benificent Being? What are we making
to tell us of beauty, compassion, tenderness, graciousness,
understanding and love? Shall we learn of kindness from a computer
or love from a laser-beam?

In the meantime, there is no
reason why individual Initiates should not arrange their own
Calendar cycles for Group or personal purposes.
Since the rough divisions of the Solar Year of Light are Days,
Weeks, Months, and Seasons, we might imagine a fair distribution
of attention among these as being:
The Day. Dedicated to each individual for his personal progress
as he sees fit.
The Week. Dedicated to the 'family' of a very few close associates,
working according to their Wills together.
The Month. Dedicated to the 'Group' of a number of 'families'
coming together every month for mutual co-relationship.
The Quarter. Dedicated to an entire 'System', when the major
Systems of the Mysteries hold their respective gatherings in
spirit, body, or both.
Annually. Dedicated to the Holy Mysteries as a single Cosmic
Spiritual force of cohesion among the whole of Mankind and
associative Entities. A yearly recognition of this at 'top-level'.

229


A common point of meaning
might easily be found in association with the appropriate
Zodiacal Symbols which cover the whole of Creation over a
broad band by their annual Circle. If each monthly contact were
aligned in purpose, type and nature with whatever ruling Sign
prevailed, the Mysteries might be enabled to improve relationships
between Micro and Macro-Cosmos quite considerably.

The Quarterly Rites
The Great Quarterly Rites are probably the most familiar
among Initiates of all Systems, although there is divergence of
opinion as to whether these should be at the Solstices and
Equinoxes, or the cross-quarters commemorated during February,
May, August, and November under various names.


If we are
prepared to accept the Spirits of the Four Seasons as overall Concepts,
the spiritual equivalents of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and
Winter can scarcely be objected to by any System. Spring with
its seed-time connotations of sowing our germinal ideas, aspirations,
and intentions of Will, Summer with its care and tending
of the same, Autumn and its harvest results from our Trees and
Fields of Life, Winter and its clearing away of debris followed
by preparation of our Inner Fields for another Cycle of Creation.
However the Seasons are imagined, they present us with ideal
opportunities for linking 'Heaven' and 'Earth' through ourselves
at least four times a year, and should never be neglected, however
much other occasions may regrettably fall into abeyance.


The annual Time-Space-Event

Some believe New Year is most fitting, others find
May favourable, and there are those who prefer combining it
with Maximum Light at Midsummer. If ever agreement is truly
reached among even the majority of Mystery Initiates throughout
the different Systems, such a state of genuine Mystical Unison
will become so much nearer Attainment for us all. In the
meantime, let everyone be and do WHAT THEY WILL towards the
Great Achievement, providing they at least WILL it not less than
once in a Solar Cycle.

No Temple on earth, no matter how well guarded, can guarantee
security from the enemy within for indefinite periods

Quotes & Notes

These must be dwelt on to a degree where we actually feel and
experience an Inner sensation of identification with the properties
of the Element being dealt with. With Air, it may be a feeling
of lightness and expansion, a pleasant perfume, or a 'young and
fresh' impression. Whatever it is, it should be a very definite
Inner experience caused by the concentration of our consciousness
for that particular purpose. The degree of intensity will
depend largely on the individual Initiate, but it should always
be kept at controllable levels. When some success at Air is met
with, we mentally turn to the Fire Quarter of the South, and
invoke its Element.

The Fire-Concept
Here, Fire is thought of as Light, Illumination, clarity of consciousness,
equable temperature, Inner vision, the Divine Spark
shining, Heavenly Radiance, and so forth. Let the pure Inner
Element be as perfect as possible, free from all the fears it suggests
to us as mortals. Again we must work until an experience
of radiance, clarity, or suchlike is actually undergone: inside ourselves.
Then, going West, we encounter Water.

The Water-Concept
'Inner Water' is not wet, cold, or anything that might be
unwelcome. It is flowing, friendly, protective, sustaining, amenable,
powerful, rhythmic, and anything else of a beneficent associative
nature. When we have sufficiently 'waterized ourselves' to
obtain a definite experience, we may turn to the North for the
last Element of Earth.

The Earth-Concept
Here we meet with objectivity, solidity, gravity, weight, fertility,
mass, incarnation, definition and so forth. When we feel
properly 'Earthed', we should come back to the Centre again,
and from there contemplate the Cosmos around us as a dynamic
construction driven by its own Elements. As a crudely effective
analogy, we may think of a mythical perpetual motion machine
wherein A i r blows Fire, which boils Water, which dissolves Earth
which becomes Air and so on and so on. The end-product at
this stage ought to be an Inner experience of being a balanced
entity around a Central Point of Poise, with an Elementary
Cosmos in working order humming happily on its Divine-Human
axis to the Keysound of its own Name.

The Control-Symbols
For example, in the creation of a life-form from raw consciousness,
its respiratory system would derive from 'Air', its natural
heat and associative functions from 'Fire', its fluidity from
'Water', and its solid portions from 'Earth'. All kinds of materials
and artifacts have elemental linkages, and abstractions such as
circumstances, environments, emotional states, etc., may be traced
to their elemental sources. Human temperaments are easily
aligned with elemental equivalents. When we have learned how
to handle with any degree of skill the very Elements of our Awareness
themselves, the best beginning to the remainder of Magical
Arts will have been made,

In order to control and manipulate our Elemental Consciousness
as required, it is necessary to apply their control-Symbols of
Sword, Rod, Cup, and Shield, connected via the Cord. These
Symbols are really procedural principles related directly with
each Element, indicating the main method of Magical dominion
over their energies.
On purely physical levels for instance, the Sword might well
show control of Air energy by suggesting pressures brought to a
single point as with a jet. The Rod could be a fire-bar, or the
control-rod of an atomic pile. The Cup on a grand scale is in a
sense like a hydro-electric dam. The Shield presents a picture of
anything from a blue-print to a brick wall or even a television
screen. It is the principles of the Symbols that must be sought
for rather than their external appearances or literal make-up.
Every Initiate is responsible for discovering the Inner values and
applications of these Symbols by meditation and experience.

Perhaps a jet of Air follows the
Sword-point and does exactly as this indicates. Any such ideas
will serve, so long as the key-ideas of 'Element', and 'Symbol' are
firmly associated with the basics of 'Control' and 'Competency'.
Fire may be approached with a Symbolic Rod in the form of a
lamp-standard, a blow-torch, or any Rod-means of Fire-control
except an extinguisher or eliminator of Fire.

The really important
part of any rite is its fundamental pattern, and this is freely
available to all Initiates who care to look for Archetyptal Symbols
which are common to all Systems.
The only claims for
Uniqueness a group is entitled to make for their rites are those
in connection with actual scripts written by their members for
private circulation. No more than any claim for an author's
copyright is worth. Since much material in current rituals is
composed from quotes taken from existing literary sources, there
are few really original ritual scripts available.

Everything depends on what is done with them, in which
manner, by whom. A single utterance and a gesture by a competent
operator, is worth considerably more than the most faultless
ritual script misread through by some fumbling and uncertain
amateur in the art.

Providing the operator feels at home with the ritual form
being used, and is capable of expressing himself into it as fully
as possible, magic may be made out of almost anything.

We are, however, equally dependent upon a single
Source of Divine Energy within each of us in order to make personal
progress along the Path leading to Ultimate Light, whatever
That may be. As we Will, so will we Be.

Other types of ritualists would be
well advised to build their rites chiefly from sonic rhythms, significant
movements, and associative visual and olfactory stimuli
alone. In fact they will do better without verbal components to
confuse their issues of concerting consciousness around formfoci
they can handle adequately.

As each phrase or word is uttered, there must be a maximum
effort made to identify with it and express in ourselves what it
implies. It must be felt as a truth, a reality, and an actual accuracy
beyond the least suspicion of doubt. It must be as genuine
to us as our own bodies, minds, and souls, and virtually as
integral to our existence as the consciousness which makes it
possible for us to think and speak it.

We want to be alive, and not a depersonalized programmed
mass of indoctrinated semi-morons sold into spiritual
slavery for some obscure group of controlling anti-humans who
are clever enough to stay on the outside of these conditions

Elements
are Elements, and we recognize them as our degree of Light shows
them to us.

Few people's lists would be identical, nor is it essential they
should be. What matters is actually doing the work and being
intelligent enough not to start stupid squabbles over individual
differences.

Some
may be helpful, and others not. It remains for the individual to
experiment and find what is best for him

It is probable that the words having the most marked influence
on anyone are those either whispered into the ear by a
lover or bawled in a frightening tone by those who inspire fear.
Both extremes register to maximum depth via emotional channels.

Indeed, if enough Inner Cosmoi are
constructed in a really worthwhile way, they will ultimately
produce beneficial effects upon the Outer.

Mantras
A mantram need not be a
pious or abstract expression at all. It may be any word or phrase
whatever, since in itself it is neither more nor less than a means
of holding external consciousness captive in a circle so to speak,
while Inner awareness uses this like a launching platform for
setting out on a Cosmic exploration of its own.
The mantram is sometimes classified in a slightly contemptuous
way as 'auto-hypnosis', but deserves far more consideration
than that, being one of the genuine 'old reliables' in mystical
practice, and common to most Faiths and Systems under various
names. Though almost everyone has heard of or read about it,
nothing but actual experience will demonstrate its use, and few
modern people are prepared to spend the necessary time for the
practice, which may consume an hour or so at a session. Nevertheless
it is well worth devoting at least some effort to the ancient
art for the sake of an experience gained thereby.

Having selected a suitable mantram and settled into a comfortable
meditational position, proceedings are commenced by
arriving at the most favourable chant, pitch and rhythm. This
may be done by trial and error, or simply common sense and
instinct.

The intellectual sense of the words
are then superimposed on these basic sounds by the mind. To
an outside listener, only a confused hum would be heard, but
inside the head the mantric message should be loud and clear,
excluding all other thoughts.

With practice, words can be used as keys
to unlock an entire Universe which might otherwise remain unknown
to us as an actuality of experience. That is the true Magic
of words.

The greater power we can put into words, the more Magical
they will become, and the closer relationships with Inner actualities
we shall be able to form with them.

The old admonition of thinking before speaking is a major
maxim of Magic. Most of what we say in ordinary conversation
or stock situations comes from our computer-banks of stored
verbalizations which is like a supermarket of speech. Real Words
of Power must come from far deeper levels and much closer to
our True Being than those casual commodities.

Eventually, after maybe only a few moments, there will be a
sense of a returning answer, and a concept will emerge from
Within as an unspecified impression rapidly taking shape and
character until it names itself with a definite verbal description.
Once this happens, it must be imagined as becoming louder and
louder with an insistence that leaves no room for anything else
in the forefront of the mind.

We must go much further
than that, striving for a contact with a Consciousness far greater
than that limited to a single human brain

These ' X ' contacts are of the utmost interest and value.
To some extent, the ' X ' contacts are like the secret 'high
speed' codes transmitted at such a rate that to ordinary ears
only a rapid screech is received

Quotes & Notes

Correct
Cosmic proportions must be scrupulously kept within limits.
An overloaded or badly unbalanced Circle 'explodes' or disintegrates
just as certainly as critically massed plutonium. The
Circle must always be balanced as perfectly as circumstances
allow, and the better the balance, the more worthwhile results
will be

A single Initiate is responsible for his own cosmation. Two
can work together if each is capable of mediating two of the
necessary Quarters. Three may work if the 'odd one out' is capable
of functioning as Cord. Four is the minimum for best Group
working. Five will give the Quarters and a Cord, which makes
for good average cosmation

Aims of ritual Magic
Ritual Magic is a sadly misunderstood and usually misapplied
art.

For the production of energy-patterns
in the force-fields of living consciousness which are definitely
relatable with intentional Inner effects that might even conceivably
materialize, ritual Magic is unique, unrivalled, and
quite invaluable. Once this is sufficiently realized, and competent
practitioners devote the necessary amount of attention and devotion
to the work of constructing Rites linking modern procedures
with the most ancient Traditions and basic beliefs, Magic will be
reborn in the happiest way among Mankind.

Blessed indeed are those with sufficient strength of character
to accept a truly Ancient Art for what it is, and continue
its practice according to present day standards of knowledge
and behaviour.

The art of Magic is acquired rather than taught. Since it
means so many different things for so many different people,
definition of terms is bound to cause disagreement in all directions,
but this is relatively unimportant because Initiates must
work the Way Within themselves, and where enough of these
are available to form a complementary Cosmos with each other,
let another Circle of Light co-exist with the rest.
For practical purposes, let us suppose Magic to

If we consider
Consciousness as an energy like electricity, and our Magical
Symbolic devices like the various mechanisms which electricity
works for our wills, we shall have a useful analogy to play with.

Selecting a thought system

This is indeed the case, and is the reason why there are
relatively few ritual magicians in practice. The apparent lack
of rapid return for expenditure of effort and capital is enough
to discourage all but the most deeply dedicated souls.
For most apprentice practitioners the problem is where

Pseudo-mysterious affairs throwing out tantalizing hints of the
tremendous powers to be gained by those attaining higher degrees
for higher fees should be avoided like plague spots. Any workable
or worthwhile System should be expressible as a recognizable
Symbol which contains the whole System in itself, and therefore
cannot be the exclusive property of any particular Group.

This is why the most usual Systems prevalent in Western
Mystery workings are the Qabalistic, Rose-Cross, and Solar (or
Celtic) Cross Patterns. Each presents an entire Way of Inner
Life readily acceptable and practicable for human souls living
the way we do, to follow faithfully and obtain useful spiritual
results from. What is of great importance, but rarely grasped,
is that the Symbol itself holds the System, and not any particular
human Group claiming to represent it. In other words, any soul
of good intention at all is perfectly entitled to apply himself
directly to a Symbol, asking its Inner Guardians for instructions,
and if the application is sincere, such teaching will truly be
forthcoming.

There are no especial human Groups with exclusive rights to
158 INNER TRADITIONS OF MAGIC
System-Symbols other than those arising entirely among themselves
for private use.
All that any Mystery-Group does is to work
out means and methods of dealing with whatever System they
follow, and offer companionship to suitable souls who would
walk the same Way.

A good way of starting anything
is in the beginning, and since the basics of our bodily being are
its constituent Elements, we might as well deal with those from
a spiritual standpoint. They are of course the distinctions of Inner
conditions, which, if they were physical, would best be recognized
as Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. It should be scarcely necessary
to say that the Inner Elements are not in fact such material
phenomena, but do bear a representational relationship to them,
as might the energies of Heat, Light, Electricity, and Magnetism
bear comparison with the Magical Elements.

The Cosmic Diagram
The standard
formula is : 'In the Name of the Wisdom (up), the Love (down)
the Justice (Right), and the Infinite Mercy (Left) of the One
Eternal Spirit (Circle) AMEN (Heart).'

Mentally
moving simultaneously towards head and feet from our Central
Spiritual Seed within us, the axis of rotation is made between
an accepted Infinity of Divine Intelligence above us, and an
Infinity of Human Innocence (or Ignorance) below us.

The Air Concept
Unpleasant suggestions such
as evil smells, hurricanes, etc., must be firmly rejected at the
commencement if we are to create a Cosmos worth living in.
Nothing but the finest and purest qualities that can be imagined
i6o INNER TRADITIONS OF MAGIC
into an 'Air-Concept' are fit to incorporate into our Inner
Cosmoi.
