Greater Hexagram Ritual and Veils of Paroketh and the Abyss

Postby ThelemicMage » Fri Aug 10, 2012 7:03 pm

As the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram places the Magician on
the Path of Samech, so this Greater Ritual places him on the Path
of Gimel above, instead of below Tiphareth.


This is taken from Crowley's revised greater pentagram ritual on the train ride through India.

Even though he stated this was not inspired, this is the typical view of the greater, (Supreme) pentagram ritual. The veil of Paroketh is rended, and one passes through it into Tiphereth, and then on the path of Gimel above Tiphereth.

Is there any form of ritual that has to do with rending the veil of the abyss? The two are actually not that far apart. The only thing that I can think of right now is the ritual of Passing Through the Tuat, as it requires one to be a Babe of the Abyss before continuing, but it does not say anything about veils. (I feel I am asking a stupid question to get a specific reply from someone more experienced than I. My apologies for my subconscious magical adolescence.)

I guess I am trying to work my way around and through the abyss, connecting all the sephira involved, taking my time doing so. I feel as if I was very experienced with this in my past life, and ritual magick has always been a case of deja-vu for me. It is certain I was very high up in grade, which makes it confusing for me at times when I try to attain to the higher that I _know_ I can flow and work with, even though I am still attaining to the higher from all of the lower.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have no idea about any ritual already written.

Yet I am wondering if your personal life since you posted this has been able to shed any light on this for you?

That is keen speculation, Angel.

In fact, my ventures through these levels of existence have left me seriously humbled.

I have experienced Death on many levels, though I feel I have acquired a perspective - through vast, sometimes Apophal involvement in abyssal realms - that keeps me from being the former jester I always was.

It is as though my past involvement with these planes and spheres has dissolved, coagulated, and crystallized into some form of permanence that leaves me to believe that even if I should die or something of the sort, I will never be able to go back to "normal" beginnings ever again.

I feel my many incarnations' of magical experience has come to bind me to that three-corded rope that scales the abyss of the sacred camel that steps across ever so carefully.

It is not something one can easily explain, perhaps there are many levels connecting themselves between the seemingly separate paths of the trees, and that I am just realizing one can manifest one's self at any level, path, plane or sphere at any time, of course accounting that time is an endless hallucination, and there is truly no "earned" level of Magical ability, since the Universe is ruled by Love and the Will of Love.

I must venture into the night now. Hope I made some connection for you.
