What's with the Golden Dawn nowadays?

Postby FiatYod » Thu Mar 08, 2018 1:19 pm

I've come across the website www.golden-dawn.com, briefly read through their homepage, signed up to their newsletter, and I must say that this guy (his name is David Griffin, I'm not sure if anyone else is involved) seems like an abominable charlatan.
All their newsletters are about sale promotions, and their "content" seems more like New Age crap (e.g. "how to attract wealth") than real initiation.

So, my question is: is that really The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, or just a lousy scam? If it's really the Order, how in the world did it get down to that level?

It's one expression of the order, just as there are many lineages of A.'.A.'. there are lineages of the Golden Dawn. I don't like to give my opinion on the work of any particular order, but I wouldn't argue with your opinion.

I've downloaded a PDF file written by that David Griffin called Ultimate Life Mastery.
It begins with an introduction written in layman's terms, then explains the Rite of the Qabalistic Cross, and then details some "Empowerment Spell" using the Egyptian pantheon.
So it's better than I previously thought, but still not really impressive.

Everyone will disagree with me, but, in actuality, truth, reality, the big cahoona, the Golden Dawn exists internally. The outer image of it is just a means to point one within.
"And they that read the book and debated thereon passed into the desolate land of Barren Words. And they that sealed up the book into their blood were the chosen of Adonai, and the Thought of Adonai was a Word and a Deed; and they abode in the Land that the far-off travellers call Naught."
- LXV 5:59
