Life Force and the Soul

Ordo Obscurus #Lesson216

Life Force and the Soul

Through my years of study in Occult Science, one field of interest has always been the soul and its relation/coloration to the life force. It was always understood that the more demanding the magickal feat, the more soul/life force was required to accomplish it. The exchange is always prevalent and there is no magick, big or small without exchange and certainly none without consequence.

So, to give an example, returning a soul to its original earthly vessel would take out of you or a host of your choosing, a considerable amount of life force/ soul than would let’s say casting a curse on someone. If you use up too much of your soul you cease to exist. Should this occur your soul disappears into the void, there is no afterlife for something without a soul. It is my understanding that the Universe has a finite amount of souls not infinite, hence the reincarnation process, in this plane of existence or another.

So should there be no host available, then you need to be the primary source. The issue now arises of how to replenish that life force/soul that you have used up to perform whatever task you were presented with. It is known that the longer you take to replenish that life force, the danger of falling seriously ill becomes far more realistic.

I have found that life force can be replenished in various ways from hosts around you, the trick here is not to drain that host to a dangerous level, but to take only what is required. Sexual activity, touch, or indeed blood, are but some ways with which life force can be regenerated.

So what is life force? Witches, Luciferians/Theosophists, New Agers, and others regard life force as “the Universal Energy that gives life to all things. They believe and teach that life force gives life. Christians believe and teach according to Scripture, not occult doctrine. The Word ( Jesus Christ) is the creator. Life is in him, not life force energy.

Life Force Energy is also the power used in magick. Magick is simply the act of directing Life Force Energy through the power of Will to effect change in the manifested Cosmos. Some names for life force energy are; Universal Life Force, vital force, healing force, elemental energy, Aka, Prana, Chi/Qi/Ki, psychic healing, biofield, Kundalini, Spirit Energy, Mana, divine energy, Orgone, animal magnetism, para electricity.

The power of life force energy is demons, although this fact is almost never stated plainly by those who teach about it and use it. The demons are alive (life) and they have the ability to do work by supernatural means (force) but they do not give life.

You are a soul, you have a body. I like to think that a soul inhabits a body and the life force is what keeps the body moving. Soul and life force to some are two separate things. Others believe that Lifeforce is tied to the body and the soul is tied to the spirit. When a vampire drains you of your life force, you die.

The Soul is personalized energy, partially overlaying (but not identical) with your aura, that holds all your memories, emotion, and personality, but not in its whole structure, they are elements that are just made out of energy created by living and experiencing positive emotions and connection to other people. Life Force or Chi/Qi/Mona etc. is the mystical energy that comes with being alive. If your cells have active mitochondria you have life force. Now we have a bit of a chicken&eggs situation here so it’s unclear which fuels which but you can’t live without both. It is what your aura is made out of, what Vampires would feed on. It’s the energy that a Magus would tap into if they can’t draw from the surrounding environment.

Your soul permeates everything in your body but is not a part of the body. The soul can exist without the body, but not the other way around. Your soul is the essence of free will. And no one can touch that. No one can take away your free will, and so, nothing can take away your soul. Except you. The one thing you can’t protect yourself from is yourself. That being said, I’m sure your soul ‘flavors’ your want for life. You are your soul, controlling the actions of the body.

To me, the soul and the life force are merely two sides of the same coin. As stated by others, the soul animates the spirit, while the life force animates the body. Neither can exist without the other. No soul, no lifeforce, and vice versa. The soul is the part that is undeniably you. Lifeforce is like the glue holding your soul to your physical body.

The Cosmic Experiment

People imagine that we live in God’s Creation. In fact, we inhabit God’s Experiment. God created and destroyed a number of prototype earths because they did not satisfy him. The Jewish legend Haggadah says, “Nor is this world, inhabited by man, the first earth created by God. He made several earths before ours, but he destroyed them all, because he was pleased with none until he created ours.”

God is said to be perfect. If a perfect being created this world, why isn’t it a perfect world? Haggadah supports the idea of God as a scientist, an experimenter, someone who makes and unmakes worlds, in order to learn from his mistakes and arrive at better results.

God does not create perfection. Rather, he experiments with it. He retains his best experiments, and gets rid of his worst. God is dialectical.

God’s first living creations were the angels. However, they disappointed him because they were too perfect, made too much in his own image. Their free will was limited. They did not know how to be bad, to have a personality, to be individual. They were boring. God found it impossible to love his firstborn, and that caused him great distress.

What should God do with creatures that displeased him? Wipe them out, just as he wiped out bungled worlds? Having created immortal souls, God couldn’t then kill them, even if he wanted to. Therefore, he devised a new plan: to make the angels more interesting, to give them meaningful free will.

As his instrument, he chose us. Human beings were designed as the vehicles through which angels could be corrected. Humans are an emergency repair kit it for angels.

To make his experiment even more special, God did not produce humans as a brand new life form. Instead, he made humans from creatures he had prepared earlier: from brute animals without consciousness. Out of all the animals on which he might perform the divine experiment, God selected a particular group of apes … the “fifth ape”.

God was interested in accomplishing two tasks: making his chosen apes into conscious humans, and perfecting angels via humans.

This is the remarkable story of God’s grand, cosmic experiment. It’s an experiment still in progress. And we are all its active participants.

DreamSpace

So here I am trying to remember yet another lucid dream that I had, it was just like any other day. The birds was chirping, the road beside my house was busy as ever, the metals clang as the buildings slowly rise. The morning aroma of breakfasts being cooked for work. It was another day, another life, another reason to exist, another moment to express and manifest the infinite potential that we all have. Then there it came to me, the greatest question that you could always ask. The question was “Why?”, a glimpse and re-assessment of my overall life. The voices inside me was shouting and kept asking the questions, why do we do all these things? What is your reason? Your program, your pattern and your habits. Have you ever asked yourself why you do things? What is the purpose of your doings? Do you do things because your really want it, or you do things because society said that this is what you’re supposed to do? Questions that reflect your every movement, your thoughts, your morality, your essence. What is the purpose of everything? What is your purpose? Is it enough to just live and be alive? Is it still about surviving or is it now about thriving? Am I aligned with the bigger picture? What am I missing? Creator? Mob mentality? Am I a Sheep? Am I lost? Am I just a Wanderer? Or am I more, or am I all of this? But what do I choose to tell myself? What is the story that you tell yourself everyday?

Then it happened, I felt my heart beat so fast. My lungs trying to grasp for air. My eyes lids struggle to open as the Light from the Sun gets processed by my retina, I felt my cold sweat slowly dripping down my face, then I immediately knew that I was about to wake up. Oh was it just a dream? My realizations, those questions. Was it someone else? There seems to be someone inside of me that wants to align myself to the Universe.

It actually felt weird for me writing this post down as I don’t understand how my waking state seem to be more confused than what was happening inside my DreamSpace, because apparently when I’m inside that state I seem to be more in tune with myself, my reasoning skills was on point, my logic seem to be connected with the bigger picture, my ideas seem to be at peace to the Higher Order.

What is that certain factor in the waking state that sways me? Is it because the DreamState is a part of the internal Collective Consciousness of the Universe? Or is it maybe because the narrative that I had accepted and chosen isn’t really who I am and that it’s just a broken fragment of it. Oh the chosen stories that I tell myself each time I wake up. Who’s in control of the narrative? Do I subject myself to chaos or do I try and understand the secret order in all of this? What do you think?

Midnight Prayer to Lady Isis, Goddess of Magic

Midnight Prayer to Lady Isis, Goddess of Magic

I hail You and praise You,
Glorious Goddess,
At the end of this day which You granted me.
May my actions within its hours be judged to be justified,
And my words within its hours found to be true.
Drain from me all intent and action;
I offer to You all energy I have locked in unworthy action or reaction
May tomorrow by Your grace find me wiser
and my joy in the universe still greater;
I ask Your welcome now in the Temple;
Accept me this night for rest, for study, and for worship;
Grant me dreams of meaning and the memory to recall them.
Hail to You, Goddess of the starry pathways;
Hail to You, Goddess of the Deep Black,
Hail to You, Goddess of the Shining Sun at Midnight,
May I partake of Your glory forever.

Symbolism, Freemasonry, and the Tarot

A must-read for fellow Travelers.

MASONIC PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY

Is a picture worth a thousand words? In our modern society, most are acquainted with Tarot cards as a form of divination or fortune telling. However, there is a deeper, more esoteric meaning attached to the Tarot. A legend exists related to the Tarot which tells of a group of adepts traveling through an enchanted forest. Along the way, these individuals lost their voices and were only able to communicate with each other by displaying Tarot cards to one another. Through the exercise of relation via symbols, the adepts were able to navigate out of the forest and into the light. What is the Tarot, and what relationship does the Tarot have with Freemasonry?

The Tarot System

On a surface level, the Tarot is a deck of 78 cards, each with its own distinct image and meaning. While many have used the cards as a divination tool, Tarot cards can…
