Everything Takes Forever

Things can take so much longer than we’d think at the get-go…

We began taking pre-orders on the (seemingly imminent) METAMORPHIC TAROT OF THE SPIRITS over a year ago. It is only this past WEEK that the finished deck and book are (at last!) being sent out.

Similarly, we wrote the book ORBIT some time before offering The Metamorphic Tarot. It is has only just recently seen print and is available for Order now.

By the time such Labors manifest, we find we are already deep into the Next Phase of The Work.

What Work?

THE GREAT WORK.

The same deal those Alchemists of Old were after.

The leaves of the calendar fall and we keep grinding at the Eternal Wheel.

Until we become The Wheel…the Wheel we ever Were and Are (see Crowley’s “Pilgrim Talk” from The Book of Lies).

Conversation at Space Hoodoo HQ this evening veers into the Game of Life…

New Thought Pioneer Neville Goddard reverse engineers our existential crisis. We are God…God incarnate to experience and redeem this Human Life. Not playing, not pretending or wearing a mask. God actually and really becoming the Human Being, really and truly dying in the Flesh. Playing, as Goddard says, every single role in The Play.

And God is no less God for it.

“Reader Meet Author”-from The Spacebuddhaa Angelic Contact Tarot

Knowing that the End Game is waking to this fact, emerging from The Play, we can assess just where we’re at in the Script.

There is a natural and needed Next Step to be made-and we, as individuals, are the ones to perform the task. Our strength, vision and resolve may draw from the Knowing (or Gnosis) of our True Being.

Michael Bertiaux states our situation in the most plain and hopeful fashion in his “Vudu Cartography” when he says that in our Vudu we are right where we need to be-or not too far from it. Our concern is simply the task at hand. The challenge is to see it clearly.

In various Occult Schools we are introduced to tables of Initiation. Take Crowley’s A.A., for example. It’s not unique in this regard but serves our purpose.

At the bottom, there’s the Neophyte and at the top, there’s the big bad Magi-and, above that, the Ipsissimus, Beyond Will or Condition, with a variety of Grades-and Magical Tasks-between.

At the beginning of the Quest, our eyes are blinded with Stars. We have big ideas of attaining to some “Higher Grade.” We work hard to get there, thinking “Neophyte” is a clumsy start to the “Mastery” we may achieve.

Chogyam Trungpa, between bottles, was able to give a lovely little Key in this matter. He simply observed that what could be Attained or Gained could be Lost or taken away. But our Real Nature remains what it is (“Deem not of change”). It’s not contingent upon our efforts and remains Adamantine all the Way.

“Ride a Camel through the Eye of a Needle…or, at least, smoke one.”

Hence, Kenneth Grant wrote of “Non-Mobile Becoming” in his Wisdom of S’lba.

If we can but GLIMPSE this, we hold the Philosopher’s Stone.

How to USE it?

Apply it in its own Light to the situation at hand.

We go to the Next Step as God writes, acts in and directs “The Play,” “We” being no less than Blake’s “Jesus…The Human Imagination.” This is the Word of God, the Power of God and the Glory of God…which are all ONE with God.

But if God is no less God in this scenario, we are no less HUMAN as participants.

Yeats saw the crisis quite clearly when he wrote:

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”

It’s true-and it’s so STUPID.

Do you really think the idiots who run (and ruin) the planet with their arrogance and greed are better than yourself? Or any OTHER than yourself?

Do we actually check out at the supermarket, look to the rag-rack and think US Magazine is anything other than Mind Control, Inc fighting to keep our own Divinity held at bay?

Reminding you that Sock Swine are Important People, one checkout at a time.

I can recall waste of life cocktail parties where someone asked the micro-tribe: “Have you ever met someone FAMOUS?”

Recollections sputter over mixed drinks and the speakers all fade into the background.

It’s akin to asking if you’ve ever met ANYONE!

The Key is waking up in the Game, lucid dreaming in the Flesh, remembering that there is an Operator behind the Virtual Reality. This Operator is none other than Ourself in Eternity.

The smallest dose of this Knowledge can empower a radical readjustment of one’s terrestrial lifespan.

Our next project will not be offered via any sort of pre-order. This is the SPACE BUDDHAA ANGELIC CONTACT TAROT. When we announce it, it will be ready for immediate shipment. Between Now and Then is the Pilgrimage.

ORBIT: An Introduction to the Principles and Practices of Bardo-Gaming on the Propserity Path is available from Gateways Books and Amazon.com.

The Metamorphic Tarot is available from Spacebuddhaa.com

SpaceBuddhaa & The Angels

Spacebuddhaa.com has been a bit silent as of late. This hasn’t been for want of activity. We have recently relocated and are at work on a new Tarot along Angelic-Spiritist lines. This is much more than an idea around which we are crafting our current cards. The theme of Angels is, of course, a popular one and has appeal to the “mass market” of “Lite Spirituality.” Often, we find depictions of Angelic Being in soft human guise, gently robed and winged, wearing halos to illumine a sweet smile. Such images may, indeed, serve to express the presence of certain messengers. However, there are MANY ways in which Angelic Beings take form. These range from the phantasmagoric to the abstract. In fact, abstraction is often the best manner in which to give expression to the energies and intelligence emerging from a homeland beyond 3-Dimensional Spacetime.

Angelic Beings are, traditionally, Messengers of God. We might see them as “Rays of God,” specialized extensions of the Divine Mind interfacing with human experience. With this in mind, the SpaceBuddhaa Angelic Tarot is not so much focused on an artistic rendition of well-known Angelic “personalities” (Gabriel, Rafael and so on ) as it is on Angelic Presence as a FUNCTIONING of the Divine Will. This deck will not only serve as an oracular means to identify energy patterns at work in one’s environment but will be a means to build up Angelic Forms at the Crossroads between realms. Techniques for this approach will be detailed in the book accompanying the deck.

We are also working on several other magical items intended for use with the deck including a Quartz Yesodian Contact Altar. This is a device whereby the cards may be incorporated into vigils and acts of service on behalf of others.

We have received a lot of wonderful feedback around the previous Spacebuddhaa Tarots. Creating and producing these has been an ongoing learning experience and it has been especially encouraging to have heard from recipients of the Bardo Bear Tarot who found in its playful and innocent nature a means to access a joyful and healing creativity. Some of this response came from longtime students of “darker” esoteric paths.

The Spacebuddhaa Angelic Tarot is neither “Dark” nor “Light” but endeavors to express the first verse of the Spacebuddhaa Sutra which declares that “Love is Powered by the Infinite.” Between Void & Form there is a mystical matrix wherein the Angelic Powers operate. Some will know these powers, perhaps, by other names. We chose to embrace the word “Angelic” after many recent and personal events transpired with a deep focus on this particular form.

Like a prism, the rays of Light flow outward and return to their singular Source.
