Serpent and lightning bolt

Postby gerry456 » Fri Apr 15, 2016 1:58 am

The serpent's bite and the lightning bolt in Liber MMM, how do we induce it? Of course the answer is by imagination but when I've done this in the past there's been a fake it till you make it kind of set up.
2.19 They shall rejoice, our chosen: who sorroweth is not of us.

2.21 We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.

The explanation in the fewest words is: Systematically, step by step, work the structured path of initiation.

You do not call the Serpent by playing His songs on the flute. His venom is potent. The Serpent bites you when you are pleasing to His appetite. Then the lightning will strike. Exactly like Jim said in another way.

What can I say? It ain't for me.

It's not just a "thing" to do - it's a symbol of the entire course of initiation. The Serpent of Wisdom ascends the Tree path by path and (for example) shows the winding nature of the Path with many turns. The Lightning Flash strikes home in a singular instance of manifestation - the instantaneous expression of the whole. (Unlike the Serpent, this isn't sequential - it is instantaneous, occurring outside the linearity of time.) The interlocking of these two, their mutual entwining and embrace, is a symbol of the approach to, and attainment of, the Knowledge & Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel - the 22 (Paths) x 10 (S'fiyroth) = 220, a number that is, itself, an arcanum of the process and the result.

Keep it, keep this one, keep it forever. Time on the mat is a hundred...a thousand... a million times worth all the talk! :)
