The Letters are captivating and venomous at the same time - decadent, yet
brisk. And their gnostic acid is a scream. It's a pity Crowley isn't around
anymore. He would have loved the Paris 4 and their workings. [Raven]

In the Gospel according to the Egyptians Salome said
'Until when shall men continue to die?'
'So long as women bear children.'
Salome then asked
'I have done well then, in not bearing children?'
Christ then says [clearly evading the question]
'Every plant eat thou, but which hath bitterness eat not.'
Clement of Alexandria, 150-213 AD, has this:
'For they say, that the Savior himself said: I came to destroy the works
of the female.'
Those 'works of the female' are identified by the Church as lust, which
shouldn't surprise us, because no Church of course likes to degrade pregnancy in
particular, and procreation in general. [Kline]
It is, I believe, not a coincidence that we almost only find direct or
indirect teachings about physical immortality in [copies of] Gospels found after
1810. Gospels that couldn't be edited or destroyed by the Church anymore. The
most famous one being the Gospel according to Thomas of course.
A truly beautiful example I think of an indirect teaching on physical
immortality [not detected by the Church] is the conversation between Jesus and
his mother at the wedding in Kanaan. Indirect, because it has to be read in my
opinion in the light of Jesus' conversation with Salome.
'Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not
yet come.' [John 2:4] [under Forum-name]
Christianity is eating the menu, not the meal. It's the alchemist, the future
Christ, who's eating the meal.[under Forum-name].
Nobody can pursue divinity. The Grail can not be invited. What is it India
says to humiliate her many seekers and self appointed masters and saints: those
who seek, the greedy and eager, are the least talented. [Jugal Kishor]
In Norse mythology, the world tree, was a sacred ash which spanned heaven and
hell. It was evergreen and tended by the Norn goddesses of past, present, and
Yggdrasil had three roots with a spring under each one: one root descended to
the well Hvergelmir in Nifelheim or Hel, the realm of the dead; another ran to
the well of Mimir, the source of all wisdom, under Jotunheim, land of the
giants; and the third reached Urd's well under Asgard, home of the gods. Urd's
well was a regular meeting place of the gods and was guarded by the Norns, who
sprinkled the tree with its waters every day to avert decay.
Various creatures inhabited Yggdrasil, including an eagle and a hawk in the
branches; four sacred harts who fed on the foliage; and Ratatosk, the
strife-making squirrel, who travelled continuously up and down the trunk to
maintain the hostility between the eagle above and Nidhogg, a dragon which
gnawed ceaselessly at the root connecting to Nifelheim. [ http://encyclopedia.farlex.com/Ygdrasil
That world tree is a microcosmic tree, residing in the spine and brain.
Wikipedia tells us:
The axis mundi (world axis), in religion or mythology, is the world center
and/or the connection between heaven and Earth. It exists in virtually all
cultures on Earth, although it plays a much more explicit role in those cultures
utilizing shamanic practices or those with animist belief systems. It is thought
that the axis mundi idea spread throughout Eurasia as a part of the
Proto-Indo-European religion, more specifically as the world tree concept. It is
familiar today as the Rod of Asclepius, the symbol of medicine, and the similar
caduceus; the staff is the axis itself, and the serpent (or serpents) are the
guardians or guides to the other realm. It is a common shamanic concept, the
healer traversing the axis mundi to bring back knowledge from the other world.
The axis mundi connects heaven and earth as well as providing a path between the

(...) A divided house must fall [mortality]. And what is it that squirrel
does [in the psyche of man]? It maintains hostlity between the eagle at the top
[in the skull], the microcosmic 'male', and the dragon, the Kundalini-snake, at
the bottom [in the coccyx], the microcosmic 'female'.
If the squirrel could not do that anymore, the snake would be able to climb
the trunk [the spine], touch the eagle, and free the eagle. The house then
wouldn't be divided anymore.
The seventh chakra would be opened then.The Paris 4 confirm in part 2 of the
Letters, email 1, that it is that top-chakra that opens first, and not last, as
India claims. [under Forum-name]
Anything that contains important information which is not instantly
recognisable on the surface can be considered to be a retainer of a code or
cipher, and we can be sure that this is what the Great Pyramid is in
structure.(...) ...no one can really doubt that the amount of information that
can be gained from closely studying the Great Pyramid and its location – even
if much of this information was intentionally encoded or not – is indeed so
mind-boggling, that one could be forgiven for thinking that ‘God’ or some
‘higher intelligence’ not constrained by the laws of our reality had built
it, saying: “There you go, all the information you need to know about you and
your reality is all stored within this monument – find it and use it!” . . .
'Happy the lion who is eaten by a man, because that lion will become a man.
But woe the man that is eaten by the lion, for he will become a lion' [Jesus in
Thomas on the Night of the Soul]. It's the theme of the Sphinx. [the P4]
The pyramid is the capstone of the Obelisk, the Obelisk the successor to the
Ben Ben-stone. The pyramid is therefor a symbol in stone for the stone that
ignites the holy fire of the Bennu-bird, the Phoenix of the Greeks. [under
There is some evidence in the ancient texts that the eventual addition of the
capstone (and thus the completion of the pyramid to its full design) was seen by
the initiates as symbolising the return of the Light to the world in the
Messianic person of the resurrected Osiris. [Lemesurier]
We're awaiting the Stone. [saying in Alchemy]
The Paris 4 write: "The stone is produced about where the liver is. The
stone ignites the Kundalini fire (the fire can actually be heard) and starts to
move about, increasingly violently. Fire getting stronger. Arms and legs break
Arms and legs breaking into pieces? That sounds osirian enough. And what's
more, Seth, who trapped Osiris, had 72 conspirators.
The alchemical process is said to clean too, and to deliver a shining white
Lightbody, the bridal clothes of the Gospel.
Now, in the Gospel according to Philip, Jesus entered in the dyeing of Levi.
He took 72 colors and threw them in the cauldron. Then Levi was in anger, but
Jesus "took them out all white and said: 'It is thus indeed that the Son of
Man is come as dyer'". [Raven]
In spite of the fact that no mummies were ever found in pyramids,
Egyptologists, for reasons of orthodoxy, will keep telling you that the pyramids
are graves. [under Forum-name]
The name pyramid is greek and means 'fire within' or 'fire in there'. If you
confront an Egyptologist with that, he will tell you that the ancient Greeks
called those stone buildings pyramids, because they resembled in shape a cookie
of ancient Greece called pyramidion by the Greeks. (...)
I doubt very much though that the ancient Greeks, who admired the
architecture of ancient Egypt, would call masterpieces of that architecture
after a cookie. I think it is more likely, that the cookie was called after the
building, and not the building after the cookie. (...)
And why too would a cookie be called 'fire in the middle'? Because it has
been in an oven perhaps? - All cookies have been in ovens. [under Forum-name]
An Egyptologist I consulted on this, simply turned that table by asking: why
would a building be called 'fire in the middle'? Perhaps because the pyramid
symbolizes the capstone of the Obelisk. The Ben-Ben. The touchstone to the holy
fire of the Bennu or Phoenix. That metaphore for the human body consumed in
Kundalini-fire as we know now through the [Forbidden] Letters. In that way it
would have 'a fire within'. A fire it could pass on. To a human being for
instance. [under Forum-name]
And if that stone indeed resides (and where else could it reside?) in the
microcosmic or sub-atomic realm, then this would mean it is potentially
everywhere, since there is no such thing as distance in the sub-atomic world.
That living stone [1 Peter 2:4], the Christ, is also described as the 'prima
materia'. Well, let us listen to what it has to say in the Gospel according to
Thomas in logon 77. Jesus said, "I am the light that is over all things. I
am all: from me all came forth [the prima materia], and to me all attained.
Split a piece of wood; I am there [omnipresence]. Lift up the stone, and you
will find me there [omnipresence]." [Raven]
The capstone of the pyramid, which was also placed at the apex of columns and
obelisks, representing the shamanic ‘world pillar’, was called the Benben
and represented the ‘seed-point’ of creation. In other words, the pillar or
obelisk represented the phallus of the supreme god Atum-Ra, who personified the
source-centre of the cosmos and all of creation – the Benben on top
representing the sperm or ‘seed-droplet’ which seeded this creation.
Both the Benben stone and its related archetypal creature, the bennu bird, (a
Heron) which is often depicted perched on top of the capstone of an obelisk
(‘sacred pillar’ – shamanic), also represented the ‘soul’, the
‘divine spark’ or ‘life force’ that is said to reside in every man and
woman (...). [Osborn/Gardiner]
The Bennu (Phoenix) lived on the ben-ben stone or obelisk within the
sanctuary of Heliopolis. The Bennu was said to have created itself from the fire
that burned on the sacred Persea tree in Heliopolis. [geocities]
Ancient Egypt called the Great Work of Alchemy the Work of the Sun. Here the
microcosmic sun is meant. It is supposed to open in the coccyx right after the
Night of the Soul starts. That sun conducts the psychic energy of the beast in
us that is freed during the Night of the Soul, and composes the lightbody with
that energy: the Kingdom within. [under Forum-name]
There is no broad, light and safe path to paradise. It's the rape of the
Resurrection and the terror of the Night of the Soul, a dark, narrow and
dangerous path, to quote Jesus, that is going to do the trick. And no uninvited
man passes the flaming kundalini-sword of Eden safely. But whoever does, will be
overcome through the Great Work of Alchemy in the end. And once that is done, he
will reign over the universe timelessly with Christ, his new microcosmic head.
That is the core of the Gospel, the Good Message. [under Forum-name]
Mind, consciousness, is only spin-off. Psychic energy is all we are. 'Only
feelings are real'[Sinisa Dragin]. The world, and that means my flesh too, is
only projection. [Raven]
Wolfram von Eschenbach states that his main source was a Provencal bard named
Kyot rather than Chretien de Troyes who composed a similar romance, but with
major differences, at around 1180. He was said to have been illiterate and to
have dictated the story to a transcriber. It was from the mysterious Kyot,
thought by some to a fictional device, that Wolfram claimed to have learned the
Grail mysteries, which he states were acquired by Kyot in Toledo.
In Toledo, Jews, Christians and Muslims had lived peacefully for centuries.
It was here at the great library that many ancient Greek and Roman works were
protected from the Inquisition. The city was captured by Alfonso VI in the 11th
century and according to Wolfram, Kyot obtained a manuscript in "heathen
writing" there which was the source of his knowledge of the Grail.
The manuscript was said to be written by a "heathen" named
Flegetanis. On his father's side, he was said to have descended from a heathen
"who worshipped a calf." He was also said to have descended from King
Solomon of Israel. Wolfram describes him as a skilled astrologer. [Manansala]
(...)that there is no such thing as reincarnation. And if people feel they
remember past lifes, they actually remember a past life of somebody else. The
macrocosmos and everything that has ever happened in that cosmos, is in the
microcosmos. And that cosmos is passed on in our genes. So yes, we can get
flashes from things that happened in the past, but they didn't happen to us
personally. You are born once with a soul and a body, and a third agent [Spirit]
can come in to save that body and soul by making it immortal in the Work of the
Sun. Hence: woe the soul that depends on the flesh, and woe the flesh hat
depends on the soul. [Gospel of Thomas]
Although I'm gay, I couldn't care less whether von Eschenbach himself was gay
too, but will you look at his last sentence in the Parzival (we know how cutting
his irony could be):
"To good women, if they are sensible, I am all the more worthy--in case
one of them wishes me well--now that I have completed this story. If it was done
for a woman's sake, she will have to speak sweet words to me."
Kundry and Kundalini not only share the root Kun, they also share the same
skin: von Eschenbach says Kundry has the skin of a snake.
There is nothing any of us can do that would change the metaphysical
destination of our world in general, or of any human being in particular. It is
very important to realize that the alchemical process is utterly autonomous. [Mariette]
I really don't know how the whole process will eventually end in detail for
mankind, and intuition is often nothing but wishfull thinking of course. But I
like to believe nevertheless that those who will in the end reign with Christ,
their new microcosmic head, will reign with wisdom and benevolence. [Mariette]
"I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am watching over it, until
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. It will come on a Saturday!
[Anonymous message left on the site of Gary Osborn/ quote taken from Gospel of
Thomas 10. (Temming) ]
I've been thinking about that prophecy. January 17th is sometimes a Tuesday
(in 2007 it's a Wednesday my agenda says). If the date of the resurrection
(September 4 1986) was a Thursday, then... Yes, then what? First his biological
birth (Tuesday), then his rebirth (Thursday), then gloria olivae (Saturday).

Yes, September 4th was a Thursday. http://www.hf.rim.or.jp/~kaji/cal/cal.cgi?1986

The stone of Alchemy lies in dirt, as the alchemists say. Nobody wants to
have anything to do with it. [Under forum-name]
The original lie is that everybody is potentially a candidate for salvation.
The second lie, that you can contribute to your salvation. And the third, that
you can ruin it. Those three lies, highly respected around the globe, keep
millions in business, and billions in darkness. [Mariette]
