A question about the 6=5 grade.

Postby Barrackubus » Sun May 19, 2013 9:47 pm

If an individual is at the 6=5 grade and during this grade he or she determines that one intent that would bring to fruition the will of the magician. And he or she releases that energy, is this the determination that would bring them to the abyss....in my thinking that act of magick is or maybe synonymous with the experience of the abyss...interesting to me the two maybe linked...and off base or am i perceiving it within workable paradigm....
It should never be forgotten for a single moment that the central and essential work of the Magician is the attainment of the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Once he has achieved this he must of course be left entirely in the hands of that Angel, who can be invariably and inevitably relied upon to lead him to the further great step—crossing of the Abyss and the attainment of the grade of Master of the Temple. (Magick Without Tears, Ch.83)

It's pretty hard to say that about a particular other person - especially someone that one doesn't actually know.

It seem to me, though, that it would just be a partial fulfillment of the grade of 6=5, and might, at most, bring one closer to the 7=4 grade.

I'm not sure what the thing you described would have to do with the Abyss. As you descrined it, it seems to me to have nothing to do with it.
