Magick / Dantalion Working
« on: May 04, 2017, 10:46:45 AM »
Hey Y'all,

So, as part of the agreement I offered to/made with the djinn 'Dantalion', I'm making this post here. I just did the conjuring. First, I took a shower to establish ritual purity and then I dried myself off. I set up the scented candle and lit I had for the occasion, as well as my offering of honey lemon green tea and donned my winter djellaba and other clothing. Next, I made the magic circle, using a shortened formulation (reciting verses of Scripture) and drawing the circle with my right index finger (after blowing on it three times). I then sat down and began to call out to Dantalion. Almost immediately, I felt the air grow heavier and the front of my head (right side) began to buzz. I read out my needs/desires, what I offered, and the time limit, making sure to request no negative/destructive effects. Finally, I gave the license to depart and recited more Scripture (prayers) before ending the conjuring. I repeated the conjuring twice to make sure and finished things. After the license to depart was given, the environment definitely felt lighter and relaxed. Anywho, that's it for me, for now. Will have to wait and look for any observable results of the working.

See ya on the flipside,

Tempest Desh

A class on magickal squares (with reference to sources outside the traditional Western canon) and/or a class on servitor creation and maintenance. Just my two cents.

Hop in your retro-fitted alien space ships and fly through the wall, suffering no damage as a result of your shielding system...and proceed to capture various bystanders of one species or another who populate the lands around the dungeon (yes it was a dungeon all the time) you were previously lost in. Also you scream the ancient war cry of "It was me! I was the turkey all along!" in reference to an ancient hero who often did the dance of your people for chump change.

Use more power and your throw-powered Oddjob replica hat that has blindingly-bright lights just about the brim of the hat...for ease of assassination in the dark, to find a way out of the darkness, no matter the bloodshed that might result.

I'm majoring in bio-engineering and one of the things I've seen, is for biomedical engineering, most of the jobs require graduate degrees. I have an aquaintance who has a master's in the field and works at a software company (different area of work). I was also told that bio-engineering is more the field to go into, in order to get involved with research quicker and more broadly. There are three general concentrations at the school I'm planning on transferring to (UCSC): bioelectronics, biomolecular engineering, and rehabilitation engineering. And then, there's nanotechnology, neural engineering (grad school...branches off from bio-engineering), and tissue engineering, etc. Just my two cents...hope this helps...

Spirituality / Re: Why Did God Create Us?

That's an interesting question. I'll take a stab at it, though I'm not sure if I can completely answer it. As a Muslim, I've heard at least two answers to said question, both of which can be, at a deeper level be understood as one and the same answer (perhaps two different ways of saying the same thing?). I've heard that we were created to worship God. The other, more detailed or perhaps esoteric answer was that we were created to strive to attain the level of viceregent of God, through the various means presented to us, whether through outward or inward means. In doing so, we end up turning our lives into a constant cycle of affirming God and denying base instincts/inclinations (not the natural ones, but those that are in violation of the Sacred Law, etc.) and thus actualize the divine names of God within ourselves and thus grow closer to Him, becoming (without any sort of anthropomorphic interpretation or understanding of this) more and more godly/godlike/divine, till we reach the state of Insan-e-Kamil or Perfected Human Being, also referred to as the state of Khalifat (note this is not referring to some politcal state of affairs but an inward spiritual station). Thus, in doing so, we take up our place in the Divine Order of Things so to speak. This probably sounds a lot like what Aleister Crowley spoke of in his writings on Thelema (the concept of finding out and doing one's True Will), which shouldn't be surprising, given his travels in, exposure to, and training in the exoteric and esoteric sciences of Islam and his attitude that: "The tenets of Islam, correctly interpreted, are not far from our Way of Life and Light and Love and Liberty." I believe that's from his Commentary on the Liber vel Legis (and yes, I know that he felt that Islam, like the other paths before Thelema, was/is incomplete, etc...but he did also have a great deal of respect for it and it's closeness in understanding to his own path of Thelema). Just thought I might quote an authority such as him, to give something of a frame/point of reference for the more magickally inclined here. Anywho, that's just my two cents...
