The Witches Sabbath is available for preorder on Kindle

The Witches Sabbath, the second book of the Spiritual Technologies series is available for preorder on Kindle.

The Witches’ Sabbath is an act of freedom, and a call to awakening to all spiritual warriors.

This is the Tantra of the New World. It adds to the existing technologies of the East and West the shape-shifting dreaming technologies of the Nagual.

The shamanism of the people of the Nahuas (the Toltec enlightened past of this American continent) has awakened, and it comes as a catalyst that will fuse the Eastern and Western traditions into a new Dharma, one that liberates not only men and not only women, but our true essence as beings who exist beyond bodies, beyond gender, beyond the programs of our past.

This is the tantra of the gender fluid, the religious experience of the variety of human expression.

This is the sexual alchemy of the queer, the transgender, the gender fluid, the asexual, the female, the male, the neutral, and anyone who is a divine star acting through the veil of human existence.

These Teachings Are Not for the Personality

These teachings are not concerned with the development of your personality. They are not designed to make you more popular or likable. They are not designed to make you richer, to give you better relations.

They are not designed to boost your self esteem, to give you a better memory, to be calmer, happier, or more successful. They are designed to benefit the essence so that the essence can be transformed into a soul. It will be transformed into a soul the way a worm goes into a chrysalis and is transformed into a butterfly.

Most people do not concern themselves with growing a soul because every institution has told them that they already got one. Therefore, they do not make any efforts to grow one. Once they do, they nourish the seed dormant in every body, the seed that descended as pure awareness from the vastness of sentience of the dreamer of the universe.

These teachings, then, are not for the personality. They are meant to show the essence how to allow the personality to break apart, decompose, and absorb it as the seed absorbs the fruit that holds it.

Moon Path

The path you see in front of you is not the path the others see. We all see the same moon, but the path of light reflected in the moving, living waters touch each one of us individually.

You see a path of light leading from your feet to the moon. Your companion sees the light touching her feet, not yours. So it is for everyone. So it is with the truth. It is clear, undeniable, and objective, yet unique to each one who stands in front of it.”

A View from a Gnostic Scholar … pt 3

Analysis of The Teachings of a Toltec Survivor by Paul Joseph Rovelli:

“Moving onto the next three chapters of this book, Chapter 7, titled: Pinche Aguila and Pinche Koyote, is full of short stories; some funny and some pedagogical. But the keynote story is about Koyote’s meeting with his benefactor and how he was given the name, Koyote. The story is presented in two parts; one being a vision in a cave from the fever of tuberculosis, and later the fulfillment of that vision. The chapter overall, seems a development of the Preface; where in this review, we submitted that the author presented his credentials.

Chapter 8: You Have Not Been Properly Cooked Yet, presents the notion that there are three types of attention. But it is difficult to glean what exactly these are, as they are not clearly presented. The difficulty comes with the idea of three brains; coupled with the idea of the attentions. Yet, the brains themselves are not clearly delineated, with the same really going for the attentions. The first attention is initially associated with the robot or the automatic consciousness of the body/mind complex. And the second attention is immediately connected with the frontal brain, while we are told that most people are only capable of having two attentions. The Koyote next tells us that we have two animal brains that are mechanical; the mammalian and the older reptile brain, with all these brains being “under law”—having instinctual tendencies. But we are left to infer a third attention with the assertion that “[a] third brain was added at some crucial point in our evolution.” This third brain gives us the ability to create imaginary worlds, archetypes, relationship, memes and signifiers, as well as “simulations of reality in our head.” And it is here that the third brain seems to be connected to the frontal cortex that also drives the second attention.

The frontal cortex may or may not be what the Koyote goes on to call the forebrain with the “tail brain” possibly being both the mammalian and reptile brains. And the problem for most is that the function of the front and tail brains is reversed from what could be said to be by suggestion, their intended purpose. Later, the forebrain is said to be used by the first attention, as it develops the ego and maps the world; the Tonal. The second attention then is said to be the “master of the carriage,” as aptly described at the beginning of the book; driving the human machine, and associated with the instinctive center with several archetypes related to it. It is these archetypes that “the magician and sorcerer learn to use consciously,” which is a very accurate portrayal of my own claim that magick is all about a controlled psychosis.

For me personally, the Koyote, despite his confusion of brains and attentions, really hits home with the following:

“What we ordinarily call emotions are reactive and involuntary. All these reactions are triggered by external events, or by memories and thoughts. We respond with these emotions, and the force of the emotional response direct the actions of the body. These emotions are fueled by repulsion and attraction—the twin horses pulling the carriage. The true emotional centrum, however is proactive and voluntary, conscious.”

The work of the Philosophus of the A.’.A.’. is to gain control of the attractions and repulsions, which can then be clearly measured by one’s ability to produce “proactive and voluntary,” indeed, “conscious” emotions. Repeatedly through the book, so far, I have seen the Koyote state the ideas of Castaneda an Crowley in a more articulate manner than either of these writers have ever done. So I’m more than willing to forgive the Koyote the confusion he generates in this chapter for the gems he simultaneously gives to us. Indeed, the blind and reactive emotions he describes as being “a reverberation from an external impression upon the observer”—which suggests the work of the Neophyte of the A.’.A.’. being sworn to examine all experience as having an affect upon his or her pantacle. Indeed, any “impression hits the moving centrum and creates a reverberation”—an unconscious, automatic response.

And I have to say, as it’s been nagging at me since I wrote my review of the previous three chapters, and as it now pertains to the next chapter that I am about to discuss, the Koyote once again gives us a teaching of Castaneda in a more articulate manner than Castaneda could have hoped. And I quote:

“What are the consequences of liberation? You are free from the support of the Great Magician as well, so when you free yourself, you find yourself in the jungle, and there are other dangers out there. Therefore, you have to become a warrior, and you have to become a hunter of power, and you have to know that death can come at any moment.”

Chapter 9: Never Eat Steak in the Afterlife! Deals with generalities. An idea that I very much like and have often spoken about, deals with the danger of leaving the safety of the fold of the Great Magician; an analogy for the safety of the church in Christian culture. And for the Koyote, the safety of living in the Tonal; that one might become “ambushed” in one’s wandering in the jungles outside. This requires a directing of the intent in a way that I have often spoken about myself, but is more clearly presented by the Koyote than I have been able to do, thus far. And I will take from this; moving on into the future. Indeed, by reading poetry or listening to music; viewing art, et al, one is actually recreating that art and thereby creating other worlds outside the Tonal in which to sojourn.

With this, the work of the spiritual teacher is discussed; making the teacher to be the one that provides the discomfort necessary for breaking out of the Tonal. Here we get some recursive reiterations of assertions made at the beginning of the book, but now, we are armed with a better tool for understanding. And with that, the Koyote shows us just how the book works at creating change in the reader; confirming a bold assertion made at the beginning of the book. As we come to see this, we learn the value of reading and especially of writing (Thoth/Mercury, the god of writing) in Magick.”

A View from a Gnostic Scholar… pt 2

Paul Joseph Rovelli continues his review of The Teachings of a Toltec Survivor:

Here’s the next three chapters, read for my review:

The next three chapters present the Great Magician as the demiurge in ancient Gnostic literature. And while there is commonality between the two, there is also differentiation. Chapter 4 is titled: The Personality and the Essence of Sheep. As any Las Vegas magician will tell you, the success of any trick lies in the magician’s ability to divert your attention away from where the real action is happening. But for the Great Magician, he is telling you that you already have a soul; deceiving you from the Gnostic truth that you must create your soul from one’s essence in its admixture with the physical vehicle. Creating the soul is the key to releasing oneself from the imprisonment of the essence that is said to be trapped in matter. And therefore, like Blavatsky asserts, our immortality is conditional; based upon our ability to complete this task.

Chapter 5 is titled: Enlightenment for Sale! Anyone? This chapter dispels the myths of the New Age and other Theosophical misnomers (existing despite Blavatsky’s input). Karma and Maya are accurately described; probably for the first time in writing, anywhere in contemporary literature. Also, some ideas are presented on AMRIT and what the Koyote calls the “coating”—an idea yet, that needs more explaining. But it seems this coating produces the subtle bodies, and I certainly enjoy the parallels with some of the defining documents of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X. There are also a few ironic parables the clearly drive home an important message.

And in Chapter 6, titled: The Great Magician, he clearly shows this demiurge, functioning as the lord of the Black School of Magick. While I personally find some disagreement with the Koyote’s rendering of the order of the letters of the Tetragrammaton, I agree with his overall point that cultural emphasis has been placed on patriarchal ideals and away from the matriarchy. And I would disagree with the idea that we are essence trapped in matter, as mentioned above, and that indeed, we are essence liberated in matter; that we can produce this soul that the Great Magician fears we can have the power to produce. And the Koyote does come around to pronounce this by stating, “Fortunately, there can also be liberation in a different way [from death]: in self transformation.”

Other brilliant ideas are presented in this chapter; quite consistent with Thelemic doctrine. This liberation in truly only available for the few; warning us that if it should ever become a large movement, the Great Magician would surely cut it down. This is why Liber AL tells us that it is for the few, who will ‘rule over the many and the known.’ Such rule must then be seen as belonging to those who develop their souls to perfection; a rule of awareness. But also, through the institution of war, which closes the chapter, as one learns of Ra-Hoor-Khuit: “I am a god of war and vengeance.” For though the Great Magician uses war to control the masses, the instrument of war also “creates self-identity,” as the Koyote clearly points out.”–Paul is the director of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X.

A View From a Gnostic Scholar and Accomplished Magician

Paul Joseph Rovelli, director of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X., analyses the first three chapters of The Teachings of a Toltec Survivor from the perspective of an accomplished, practicing magician and of an erudite gnostic scholar:

“The mythos begins with Chapter One, Something Was Changed; suggesting the transformation of the Soul. The Koyote places himself in a lineage and therefor in time. To do this, the Koyote describes a history of an ancient, matriarchal and originating cultural society, the Toltecs, from which he has traveled over time. His description of the temples and their sacred prostitutes also begins his deliberate correspondence between the Toltec teachings and that of the A.’.A.’.—Mexican and Euro-American Magick. It’s an exciting way to see the 93 Current not only overseeing the Toltec philosophical system, but each alchemically blend into each other.

Chapter Two, The Island of the Tonal, describes the nature of all we know and refers to that as Tonal; suggesting that this is but one world of many possible worlds. This wisdom first comes to us through Carlos Castaneda, though I dare say, the Koyote’s descriptions of the Tonal and the Assemblage Point, reveal so much more about this than Castaneda ever conveyed. We each, actively set up our own Tonal reality that the Koyote present practical instruction for deepening one’s understanding of this. The Face Reading Exercise is a practical way to correlate the Fourth Yod, Intuition, in the Gnostic Church of L.V.X.’s Doctrine of the Four Yods, as presented in our Rosicrucian Mass.

Sleep is your First Tool is the name of Chapter Three. A lot more is given on the Face Reading Exercise that helps one to understand our natural, sleeping state of awareness. This leads one to a greater understanding of the nature of the Tonal by a deep exploration of ourselves and through others, as well. It’s as much an examination of the Jungian shadow. The Koyote goes further to describe the sensitivity of what he calls the machine, and that generates a self-written program for everything that the soul regularly experiences of beingness. He then goes one step further, and declares that the energy employed in being asleep will be used, not only to awake, but to go back and forth between each state, as necessary.

In this same chapter, the Koyote also further describes the three levels of the Western temple, as incorporated into his Toltec vision. And he gives the most articulate description of the magickal powers or Siddhis in the manner they should be properly employed. The levels of Western Initiation are layers of consciousness by which the Koyote seems to have correlated with levels of energy in the Toltec idea of power and hunting power; this being brought into his training, both by his lineal nahual and his teacher at an Abbey of Thelema. This power feeds the virtue of one’s character, as is needed on the various planes of beingness.”

Unbending Intent for these Teachings

I’ve been receiving some wonderful comments about The Teachings of a Toltec Survivor. Here is one that touches the heart with tender fingers.

“After I removed it from the package I headed into my infants son room to take a quick peak. Brett saw your book in my hand and made a hyper-supersonic crawl to the doorway, stood up and reached for your book. I stepped over the child gate and went to sit down with him, book in hand. He climbed all over me for 15 minutes trying everything in his power to hold on to you book. Finally I placed it down on the carpet, and held it securely against the floor, and he spent the next 5 minutes touching it and trying to pick it up, smiling and laughing, overjoyed. I’ve never seen him act in this manner before with such intensity, and unbending intent, and I take that as a wonderful omen 🙂 I’m looking forward to diving in, if Brett will let me have it to myself. He likes me reading to him, so your book is our next read. Cheers!”–Thor Blethyn

The Treasures the Invaders Missed

“…Lend me your attention for a moment, and I’ll go on a journey to a different place with you. 

In this place of power, something deep in you will stir awake and stand up in attention. It is then my aim to attempt to unveil, uncover, and reveal that which has been lost; but not lost as in gone forever, simply misplaced, forgotten. 

These are the hidden treasures that the Spanish soldiers missed, the treasures they couldn’t take with them, the treasures that had been buried deep in the rich soil of the American continent. 

And now, with the light of the New Sun, it’s time for this buried seed to sprout, to seek the light, and to share its perfume with the world.”
