Popular Sun-sign astrology has become a subject for cocktail party chatter; the 'Underground press' displays an intensive, although often ill- informed, interest in such subjects as Glastonbury, Ley Hunting, and Flying Saucers; and books — many of them owing what little merit they possess to the skillful employment of scissors and paste — on all aspects of occultism pour from all the presses.

In the shadow of such well-publicised aspects of the Occult revival can be dimly discerned the shape of an altogether more important phenomenon — nothing less than the rebirth of Magic. Magic, that is, in the sense that it is defined by the extraordinary occultist Dion Fortune: 'The science and art of causing changes in consciousness in accordance with will.

The rites and secret instructions of the former organisation are easily available in Dr, Francis Regardie's Golden Dawn, a work which only now, thirty-five years after its first publication, is beginning to receive the appreciation it so undoubtedly deserves.

Those of the latter, the Ordo Templi Orientis, have hitherto never been published, although grossly inaccurate and incomplete typescript versions of them have occasionally been sold for high prices.

Front dustjacket the O. Here is a source book that has a place in the library of every serious student of the Occult. At about the same time the U. They were far more interested in a bombastic encyclical just promulgated by Theodor Reuss, a temporary guest of the community. This Order has existed already in the most remote times and it has manifested its activity secretly and openly in the world under different names and in various forms: it has caused social and political revolutions and proved to be the rock of salvation in times of danger and misfortune.

It has always upheld the banner of freedom against tyranny in whatever shape this appeared, whether as clerical or political or social despotism or oppression of any kind. Into this Sacred Society no one can be admitted by another unless he has the power to enter it himself by virtue of his own interior Illumination neither can anyone after he has once entered be expelled unless he should expel himself by becoming unfaithful to his principles and forget again the truths which he has learned by his own experience.

And, like the ancient schools of magic, it derived its knowledge from the East. This knowledge was never revealed to the profane, for it gave immense power for either good or evil to its possessors. It was recorded in symbol, parable and allegory, requiring a Key for its interpretation. They all require a key to disclose the real underlying meaning. There exists, however, but One Right Key, and moreover this one right key must be used the Right Way. Ordo Templi Orientis is a body of Initiates in whose hands are concentrated the secret knowledge of all Oriental Orders and of all existing Masonic Degrees.

Its Chiefs are Initiates of the highest rank and recognized as such by all capabel sic of such recognition in every country in the world. The Order is international, and has existing connections in every civilized country in the world. Every man or woman who becomes a member of the O. English Master Masons in good standing, by arrangement, on affiliation, are admitted at reduced charges. For further information see the publications of the O. But this love is as it were a by-product of that Will; it does not contradict or supersede that Will: and if apparent contradiction should arise in any crisis, it is the Will that will guide us aright.

Love is easily counterfeited. Lo, while in the Book of the Law is much of Love, there is no word of Sentimentality. Hate itself is almost like Love! Fighting most certainly is Love! The Love of Liber Legis is always bold, virile, ecstatic, even orgiastic. There is delicacy, but it is the delicacy of strength. Mighty and terrible and glorious as it is, however, it is but the pennon upon the sacred lance of Will, the damascened inscription upon the swords of the Knight-monks of Thelima sic.

For the O. It is true that some occultists have supplied a pedigree of sorts, but without giving any evidence for their genealogical conclusions. Fred Hockley, Kenneth Mackenzie These collateral continental elements constituted what was once known as the Hermetic Brotherhood of the Light.

Such statements as that of Mr. The real origins of the O. Until towards the middle of the eighteenth century few people seem to have displayed any great interest in the original Order of the Temple, the Knights Templar, suppressed in on the grounds that its members were heretical, blasphemous and sodomitical. With the rise of continental and Anglo-Saxon freemasonry, however, the building activities of the Templars began to attract attention.

Perhaps, thought some masons, the fact that the symbolism of the Craft degrees of masonry was concerned with both the building of a Temple and the murder of its architect, Hiram, suggested the existence of a connection between the Knights Templar and freemasonry? Perhaps the masonic fraternity did not, as was assumed by most of its members, go back to the time of King Solomon but was simply an underground continuation of the Order of the Temple?

They agreed upon several ancient signs and symbolic words drawn from the well of religion in order to recognize themselves amongst the heathens and Saracens. These signs and words were only communicated to those who promised solemnly, and sometimes at the foot of the altar, never to reveal them. This sacred promise was therefore not an execrable oath, as it has been called,5 but a respectable bond to unite Christians of all nationalities into one confraternity.

Some time afterwards our Order formed an intimate union with the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. From that time our Lodges took the name of Lodges of St.

The first of these was very probably the still surviving Royal Order of Scotland, organized into two degrees, that of the Royal Order of H. Heredom and that of the Knights of the R. Rosy Cross. It is there that we must seek the origin of Scottish Masonry and even that of the other masonic rites.

The Scottish Templars were excommunicated in by Larmenius, who declared them to be Temple desertores and with the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, Dominiorum Militae spoliatores, placed for ever outside the pale of the Temple A similar anathema has since been launched by several Grand Masters against Templars who were rebellious to legitimate authority.

From the schism that was introduced into Scotland a number of sects took birth. He was received in the best way in the world by the brothers who were lured by the hope of great secrets, of important discoveries which were never made known to them. The Stricte Observance, however, survived and flourished.

Its influence and reputation grew and it extended itself into almost every European country. In course of time however, schisms — the bane of all secret societies —arose, the Order went into decline and ultimately flickered out. In spite of its brief life the Stricte Observance was of importance for three reasons: 1 It left a permanent mark on the masonic rituals of Scandinavia. Chosen Priests , the first masonic association to be deeply involved in the practice of ceremonial magic.

The Elect Cohens were founded by Martines de Pasqually, a somewhat mysterious figure who may have been Portuguese by nationality. Nevertheless, he had undoubtedly been deeply influenced by a somewhat debased variety of Jewish mysticism, for he was a devotee of the degenerate version of qabalistic magic presented in such works as the Key of Solomon and the Sepher Ratziel.

The membership confined to those who had already taken the three degrees of ordinary craft masonry was divided into the grades of Apprentice Priest, Fellow Priest, Master Priest, Grand Architect and Grand Elect of Zerubbabel, the last mentioned degree sometimes being known as Knight of the East. Owing to the researches of Rene le Forestier8 we know a great deal about the nature of the ritual magic practised by de Pasqually and his disciples.

The most important ceremonies took place during the first quarter of the moon and were accompanied by the use of an incense compounded of storax, olibanum, saffron, poppy seeds, agaric spores, cinnamon, nutmeg and mastic; at least two, and probably more, of these substances are possessed of hallucinogenic properties, so it is not surprising that the Elect Cohens seem to found their magic effective!

The Invocation of good spirits and the exorcism of devils was an important aspect of the work of de Pasqually. I heard him speaking distinctly outside my chamber, the door being closed, and the windows shut in like manner, the shutters also being secured. I turned in the direction of the voice, being that of the long garden belonging to the house, and thereupon I beheld M Pasqually with my eyes, who began speaking, and with him were my father and mother, both also dead in the body.

God knows the terrible night which I passed!
