The Mandala of Kaos

Postby ThelemicMage » Fri Jun 23, 2017 10:17 am

I've been noticing things lately moreso than during the first 30 or so years of my life. Synchronicity is a common observed phenomenon, but lately, (last year or so,) I have noticed many many similar things spring up out of the woodwork. Enough to make me ignore it altogether, and then decide to make a post about it.

Has anybody else noticed increased synchronicity lately?

And no, I'm not that kind of craaaazzyyy.
“The mushroom said to me once, ‘Nature loves courage. Nature loves courage,’ and I said, ‘What’s the payoff on that?’ And it said, ‘It shows you it loves courage because it removes obstacles.’ You make a commitment, and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream, and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up.” -Terrence McKenna

I'm only saying this because it's my belief that the populace experiences qabalic matchups in their every day life in increased patterns before some major change happens, be it economic, weather, etc..

I recognize them increasing and decreasing with certain tides of my own life. I haven't yet noticed any correlations to global phenomena. Nothing in my record causes this past year to stand out. The past two weeks, however, have been particularly full.

fwiw
Go in all ways contrary to the world.

Yes, absolutely. Crowley even mentioned something similar (not _exactly_ the same thing we're talking about, though) in one of his letters that appear in Magick Without Tears:
If, however, you work at the Qabalah in the same way as I did myself, in season and out of season,
you ought to get a very fair grasp of it in six months. I will now tell you what this method is: as I
walked about, I made a point of attributing everything I saw to its appropriate idea. I would walk out
of the door of my house and reflect that door is Daleth, and house Beth; now the word "dob" is
Hebrew for bear, and has the number 6, which refers to the Sun. Then you come to the fence of your
property and that is Cheth—number 8, number of Tarot Trump 7, which is the Chariot: so you begin
to look about for your car. Then you come to the street and the first house you see is number 86,
and that is Elohim, and it is built of red brick which reminds you of Mars and the Blasted Tower, and
so on. As soon as this sort of work, which can be done in a quite light-hearted spirit, becomes
habitual, you will find your mind running naturally in this direction, and will be surprised at your
progress.

This is a very helpful excerpt.

I just got back from tripping across the country for almost two months so there's just chaos I'm recognizing at the moment. The whirring of seemingly grounded chaos.

Something seems to have clicked within me and I don't really rely on significance anymore as much as instinct and feelings (not just weaker emotional feelings but psychic feelings.) I have had some pretty profound experiences this Summer that have left me like this yet again. How long I will remain balanced on this thread I don't know, I'm not even drinking to excess or using to tobacco anymore.

Anyone wanna take a stab at what my medicine is??

Just kidding you can probably all guess.

I apologize, the point of my previous post was to mention that I kind of ignore numbers now. It's like if I pay too much attention to them they just wave their faux-divine significance all around and my instincts always go back to "Every number is infinite, there is no difference."

Weird how important stuff you read sticks sometimes huh?
