Meneology, Part 5 (Final Part)

by Brahn the Blessed

Part Five. I see Life as episodic and worthy of capitalization. Life. I believe, you see, in the spiritual basis of all existence. We come into this world as spiritual beings with boundless potentials, for good or ill, for greatness or hubris or slothful waste, for lives of misery and struggle or lives of opportunity and ease, more often a blend of the two. Our potentials for achievement of wonderful things are abundant, but our world makes us before we are able to make our world. So it is that many of us must begin our adult lives discarding the misconceptions placed on us by our elder generations, ridding ourselves of the person we were expected to be by our parents and rediscovering the person inside us that nature imbued us with the potentials to become. We are guided by nature through an unending series of challenges and opportunities to awaken to the I-inside us, to come to know ourselves and fulfill our deepest potentials.

The Essynian Mysteries – Part Four

Conveyed by Brahn th Blessed

Some things follow upon others. When you consider a proposition thoroughly, it leads to further conclusions, so some things follow upon others. The Essynian Mysteries express a pervasive view of reality, that it follows a course of Natural Process. Natural process is how and why everything occurs in time, from the first instant of time when consciousness awakens from deep-sleeping existence and gives birth to time until the final instant of time when consciousness closes its eyes and falls off again into the timeless sleep of existence. Time is change and all change follows the course of natural process. Each instant of time is brought about by a change from the previous instant of time, and the change that occurs is the change made most inevitable by the existing conditions of that previous instant; the change that occurs is the change that must occur owing to those conditions, which include a certain temporal momentum.

Secrets of the Essynian Tradition: Meneology 4

by Brahn the Blessed

Part Four.  You will recall, I hope, our discussion of the trines in Part Two.  There are three of them,  the Lunar Trine is 1-4-7, the Solar Trine is 2-5-8, and the Stellar Trine is 3-6-9.  The stellar trine is comprised of the divine menes [3], [6], and [9], whose properties are clearly different from, if not ‘greater’ than, the other menes.  Each trine has one dominant mene whose properties define the trine most emphatically, for the Lunar Trine it’s one/1 which defines the element of continuity in the trine, for the Solar Trine it’s eight/8 which defines the element of change and contrast, complemence and duality in the trine, and for the Stellar Trine it’s nine/9 which defines the element of completion and wholeness in the trine.  You may recall how each dominant mene was further indicated by the product of the trine members:

1 * 4 * 7 = 28 = 10 = [1]                2 * 5 * 8 = 80 = [8]          3 * 6 * 9 = 162 = [9] Continue reading Secrets of the Essynian Tradition: Meneology 4

The Essynian Mysteries: Part Three

Conveyed by Brahn th Blessed

In part two of this deposition of the Essynian Mysteries I tried, probably too hard, to describe the fundamental relationship of two aspects of reality.  Primordial Existence is called Spirit because it appears to be nothing and yet it holds the vast and boundless potential of everything, an unimaginably immense and relentless potential which is the driving force of the multiverse.  It requires the awakened powers of Consciousness, which I call Maya, to transform this reservoir of potential into action and change.  Spirit is what Maya IS, and Maya is what Spirit DOES.  Spirit is Being, and Maya is Becoming.  Lao Tzu spoke of Spirit as “the Eternal Tao” (the everlasting existence), whereas he called Maya (consciousness) “the Tao that can be told; the Mother of the Ten Thousand Things.”  These are the two existences, Spirit and Maya.  The former is the existence of potential being, and the latter is the existence of particular beings.

By this time, you have either done the first exercise or not.  If you haven’t, I will not be bothered with you.  If you want to learn you must study.  I have little enough time left in this life to concern myself with anyone who is absent curiosity.  If you did the exercise from Part One, you discovered that  there is an amazing hidden symmetry underlying the number system, a symmetry that permeates the numbers to infinity.

Secrets of the Essynian Traditions: Me Knee Allah Gee

by Brahn th’ Blessed

I thought this title might be more easily remembered.  Its actually an article about the power and arcane mysteries of… not yet… let it ripen… numbers.  Yes, numbers.  Another article about numerology.  Yeah, me too.  There are only ten Arabic Numerals—they are 0.1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.  That’s it.  Astrology only has twelve zodiac signs, but it’s got twelve houses too, and its got aspects:  conjunctions, quincunxes (quincunxes alone are reason enough to go astral over astrology!), sextiles and semi-sextiles, trines, squares, and oppositions.  And everyone knows their Sun Sign, their Moon Sign, and their Rising Sign!  You go, Astrology!

The Essynian Mysteries – Chapter 2

Conveyed by Brahn th Blessed

Part Two.  Primordial Existence is the initial condition of reality, the primal ground existing in a time before times and a place beyond places.  It has neither substance nor form, no identity and no qualities by which it may be described except to say that it is possessed of a reservoir of boundless potential; after all, everything that ever has existed or ever will have existed in this universe or any other universe that ever may exist, Everything!, must arise from that source that is hidden beyond the  pitiful measures of space anid time.  It must be understood as a fundamental principle of reality, vast in its potential but absent of all appearance.  Mystics describe it properly and necessarily as An Absolute One Without Other (Unum Sine Altera) and speak of its ineffability.  In speaking of the two existences, Lao Tzu said “The Tao that can be told is not the Eternal Tao; that is the Mother of the Ten Thousand Things.  The Eternal Tao cannot be told.”  It cannot be told because it has no discernible qualities; it is not big or small, neither round nor square, it has neither insides nor outsides, it is neither this nor that.  Although there is nothing that it is not, it is without the appearance of anything.  It requires such mystical language of anyone who would speak of it.

The Essynian Mysteries – Chapter 1

Conveyed by Brahn th Blessed

I coined the term ‘cosmytheology’ some years ago to combine three studies that contribute to our understanding of who, what, and where we are: cosmology is the branch of astronomical science that focuses on the origins of the universe, mythology is the branch of literature that describes our relationship to the divine, often in metaphor and fable, and theology is the study of the divine from a philosophical perspective.  Science, philosophy, and literature are three paths by which humankind seeks to understand our existence as beings in the boundless universe.  Do you question your existence?

Secrets of the Essynian Tradition: The Thirteen Essynian Runes

by Brahn th’ Blessed

Early on in my craft studies, I was advised to study a runic alphabet for recording coven & grove secrets, like names of power and ritual chants.  As I studied different runes (Futhark, Thelemic, and others), I became fascinated with phonetic alphabets and eventually developed my own phonetic alphabet, which over years of study and development, has become my Essynian Runic Script.
