The GD Returning to its Hermetic Roots?

Holy Crap! It's totally working!

The Golden Dawn is getting its shit together. It's returning to its Hermetic roots. Halleluiah!

Or at least, someone there finally got around to reading the Divine Pymander. 'bout friggin' time.


  1. My comment is not about the post itself; my comments has the intention to put thoughts on that people who pretend to be Initiates of Hermetic traditions and I want to make clear that I'm not talking about GD specifically.

    As you read in the Pymander and other Hermetic documents, all of them talk about something that many people don't like: Divine, God, someone who is the "beginning and end of all things"; and the purpose of the Hermetic tratidion is to guide man to the union with that Divine, now the question:

    How is that possible that someone who doesn't believe in a superior Being, pretends to be a Hermetic magician?


  2. Nice! I couldn't agree more, Fr. V.L.

  3. I can't speak for anyone else, but I've never met an atheist Hermetic magician. Do such people even exist? Given the contradictions I don't really see how that could be a workable worldview.

  4. Only one thought enters my mind redaing this: What "GD initiates" have you been talking to? Traditionalist GD practitioners study the source texts, even the Bible... The GD tradition is next to meaningless if it is studied outside of its greater Hermetic context, which includes its core Hellenistic traditon.

    In Licht, Leben und Liebe,

  5. Atheist and Hermetic Magician are definitely oxymorons. Perhaps Atheist and Armchair Magician would work? Even that, I don't know.
