Sample text

The Son of Light may be said to move through the Four Thresholds, but these Mysteries also inter-relate as shown upon 24 ADVANCED MAGICAL ARTS the glyph. In traditional terminology we would say that each of the Five Mysteries contains an entity, archetype or form for spiritual power. The power is transtemporal, but specific examples (sometimes incarnations) are seeded into the solar cycle and partake of the relative experience of time . Thus we have the myths of solar heroes who descend to the depths in quest of magical benefits, or the universal theme of a Saviour who is made incarnate on Earth, and liberates each of a cycle of other worlds through his or her appearance within them.

With a few significant exceptions, the majority of rituals found in publication are either very recent indeed (written since the 1950s) or drawn from Victorian literature. The exceptions are those few ceremonies connected to specific magical systems that have survived from earlier centuries (such as those of Dr John Dee or other European Renaissance magi and alchemists), and of course the diffuse fragments surviving from pagan religion. As we are working within a Western esoteric tradition, we may for the moment exclude rituals or ceremonial activities connected to orthodox political religions or to Eastern traditions.

In our present context, the Son of Light is defined simply because we have the Mother Weaver as the source and sum of Being. Furthermore inner traditions have employed the male polarity for this spiritual power for millennia; he is the Son of the Mother (not a usurper or jealous god). When we enter into the Mystery, we find that his first appearance is usually male, though this may change several times in the course of a ritual or visionary experience. The outer analogy is to the Sun, which is above the horizon for a proportion of each day, but which moves below in a definable pattern, and is the heart or light-giver of the solar system.
