Reincarnation or collective unconsciousness?
A question, that is also some what personal, as once I did believe in reincarnation, this was the time I found importance in white light movements and fluffy new age ideas. Meanwhile we have gone on in life and especially years have passed, time that I used to read and study. One of the people that is of great importance to me in this period, is Carl Gustav Jung.
His work is enormous, especially where he writes, about the (psychoid) Archetypes, our Shadow, the collective unconsciousness and lot's more. It did make me reconsider my point of view on matters, that I accepted earlier on, like reincarnation.
I was always drawn to ancient Egypt and mostly the time of the Pharao's Amenhotep III, Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten), Tut-Ankh-Amun and Ai. This was so strong, that at that time, it was clear for me, I had lived in that period and was reincarnated. Always sounds good, maybe some good stuff for a movie, but that's all.
With studying Jung, and his writings, it became clear for me, that most likely I just glanced in the collective unconsciousness, where all the memories of mankind are collected and which also can be named as the Akasha chronicles.
In any case, it changed my insights, and was the start of a further quest to personal truth. Reincarnation maybe is interesting for those who are afraid of death, it is to many times used to hold the masses in line. In the west, we rather quickly talk about it, but in the east its a terrible something, it controls the lives of many millions of people, who can't escape the effect of it, and are just used by fraudulent people, who tell them, that they will have to suffer for many lives to come, before they will be enlightened.
Reason enough to take some distance from all this, and take a more clear view. OK, I admit that what Jung brings forward, is also just a theory, but much more acceptable then what eastern religions want to make us believe.
For me its easy, dead is dead, no going to any fluffy paradise, or be reborn, we get one change to it, so make the best for it. Our soul (inner self) will not go to any afterlife. This idea is just used by, especially the monotheistic faiths, to keep men under their control. Be good, live according to their dictates and you will go, after death to paradise, your life will be one misery, but at least, you have the promise of eternal sitting on a cloud. Pity, that the words they speak, don't seem to have any meaning for these religious guys, as usually their own life isn't so nice. Something we can conclude out of the many scandals, in for example the Roman Catholic Church.
Well thanks, if that is our choice, then rather not. I prefer to enjoy my life here, according to my own believes and insights, and we will see what comes. Even if I don't believe (any more) in an afterlife, I know my memories and as such, maybe a part of who I am will remain in the collective unconsciousness, which you can also see as a kind of continuing. At least, for as long as you are remembered, once you are lost in the memories of men, the energy will fade away.
Maybe this explains, why people who remember previous lives, always claim to have been kings, princes, pharao's, popes, bishops and so on. As these persons are mostly remembered, their energy in the collective doesn't fade, but even gets stronger and is easier to reach.
In any case, we should consider twice before accepting any teachings by men, and aim toward the (Black) Light in our lives. I have found it in Sutekh. May in whatever form, it comes to you, guide you on your personal path to truth & wisdom. And above all, enjoy your life to the fullest, don't trust on the hollow stories of what comes after death.
Seemingly, my previous upload to this blog raised some questions. Or at least, this can be concluded from the feedback that I received. it's clear that many interested are known with chakra's and energy workings, but strangely enough connect it, with abstinence of sex and a sober live.
This isn't fully correct, we do see that in countries, where these teachings are common, many hold back on daily life, and turn to an almost monastic path, but let us state clearly, there is no need for this.
Though many " holy" books state, that you have to live clean and pure, I say this is bullshit. We fill in how we live, not one or the other person, who claimes that he or she got their position of god, usualy the monotheistic version of Abraham. We in the end are our own god or devil, there is no need to bow down and crawl in the dust.
Sutekh rewards those that stand strong, not those that fall to earth in worship. If we want to honor Sutekh, we must live after his image, go the path he took and absorb his deeds in our life, or at least those that we are drawn to.
So it is also with sexuality, feel free to practice which sexual interest you may have. As long its between two adults, who willingly come together & doesn't harm any one else, for example children or animals, its ok.
And practicing your sexuality can be a part of chakra and energy working, I see no reason, why the two can't go hand in hand. This is the path called sometimes wet tantra, using your sexual energy to work the chakra's and their energy. How many times, you do this, you need to fill in for your self. But don't forget to enjoy some good sex.
Using this energy in a tantric way, is good, but like a magical working, don't overdo it. Any working must come your inner self and be dedicated to raise your self, do magick, honor Sutekh or anything else, but only when you realy work from the inner out, it will go towards it goal. There is no use, to do any working, handling the chakra's or a sexual working, if you don't feel up to it.
We are not obliged to hold any kind of novena (nine days prayer), but do what ever we want, when we feel drawn to it, or up for it.
In any case, to return to my basic point for this post, working the chakra's, handling the kundalini and enjoy your sexual needs, can go hand in hand.
May in all that you do, there be growth for your self en honor to Sutekh, our benevolent Father.
We have grown so accustomed with the idea of self divination or illumination, that we usually think, this is a more modern idea, but this isn't so, though only in our days, its open to the masses, or better said, the selected few.
Many may hear the call, only few finally do get to the endpoint. Selection isn't done by men, but by nature and the force(s) behind it.
Some start with much push, but soon are drawn to other goals. Others aren't convinced of what they receive, and are lost in the mist of their own illusions or right handed path lies. Only few grow past their limitations, and reach the end goal, to become a god, or devil (As Dr. Anton Szandor LaVey would say). But there is hope, because more and more are called on this path, so in the end, also the numbers of those that succeeds increase .
Is this path factually something new, or does it goes back into history? For those that study the more ancient beliefs, it will be clear, that the path has always existed, but that it was kept secret and mostly open to the God Kings of old and their high-priests.
One of these, being the Egyptian way, I want to look into some detail. Its not surprising, that I mention this road, as ancient Egypt, has always been important for me, somewhat the red line in my life.
If we look to the Old kingdom, we see how the Kings where more then human, they where the go-between for their people, towards the gods. It was in the name of the king, that all the priest did their offerings and rites. And after dead the king would go to the realm of the gods, to become one of them and protect the land of kezmet (Egypt) for ever.
Even as they walked among men, the kings where more then humans, they already had a divine status and where seen, as the living representation of Horus, to become after dead, equal to Osiris. Was this just a lot of mumba jumba, a few elaborate titles, or was there a deeper thing to be found?
For those who walk the occult path, it is rather clear that in the early period of Egypt, and later on from time to time, the kings indeed reached a divine status in life, they grow past their limitations, to walk the path of self illumination and become a god after the image of those, they followed.
Important in this, was living the archetypes or gods of On (Heliopolis). They needed to go through each aspect of these, taking them in to their very essence, so to grow past their limitations. The exercises they used, held working with the chakra's and kundaline in, but also reaching deep in themselves to find any blockade and go through it, not with a soft brush and lot's of white fluffy light, but with a sledge hammer and the reflection of their darkest inner self.
Though most remained in the line of preservation and following the Horus (Shemsu Heru), some openly chose to surf the chaos and chose for the path though Sutekh. This is the line, I myself follow and even if its some times very difficult to remain upright, while surfing the chaos, the rewards are so great that, for me there is no alternative.
Working with the energy of the chakra's wasn't anything new for me, as I taught courses in this for several years under the name of Egyptian Healing, but I left the right handed path, and chose to live for myself, my desires, my wishes, in such dedicating myself totally to Sutekh, how ever I see or experience Him.
Piece by piece other elements joined, to show me a personal path and how to proceed on this. I wish to share this insight/ knowledge with those who are interested, and slowly but certain parts will be placed on this blog.
Basically it are all easy techniques and exercises, nothing difficult, but of course they needsome practice, to get used to them, so if you wish to reach divinty or illumination in five minutes, maybe another way to the Left Handed Path will work better for you.
Meanwhile may all who walk in the night of Sutekh, feel his blessing and become one of body and soul (Our inner self) with Him.
