Ceremonial Magick
Council 7
The Seventh Ray of Order
.Hidden Forces.
.

This Council governs architects, financial technologies, film-makers, musicians,
and the organized spiritual societies, such as
Freemasonry, The Golden Dawn, Astrum Argentum,
which are classified under the White Unicorn title: Arcania

This column is primarily presented in an Arcane Societies format

.


.Step Up and be Counted!.

This Council is concerned with noble bearing, attention to detail, order, careful methodology, military procedure, and spectacular ceremony.

It is unique in relation to the physical world, for the seventh plane of matter is the "bottom line" for the manifestation of man's activities.
.


.Step Up and be Accountable!
.


.

Council number 7 is governed by the seventh ray of Ceremonial Order and Magic.

This ray displays a violet color as it descends through the causal aura onto the crown of the head in those who incarnate under its influence.

Among individuals, this is a common ray. It gives rise to the magician, the musical composer, the film-maker, the architect, and the diplomats and politicians who operate within ceremonial structures ... plus anyone who creates structured order in physical matter.

The special qualities of the seventh ray are nobility and chivalry, both of character and conduct, ordered activity, precision, skill, grace, dignity, great interest in politics, the arts, ceremonial pageantry, magic, and the discovery, control and release of the hidden forces of Nature and co-operation with the Intelligences associated with them.

The archetypal vocation of a man or woman is the politician (in the true meaning of the word),
stage director, producer, pageant master, ritualist, magician, knight, occultist,
and the Priest in ceremonial Orders.

7.1 The Great White Lodge . . .It's that Star Again! .... ..

This is the primary trinity of Sirius that overshadows and informs all Planetary Hierarchy, White Brotherhood triads. They are Sirius A, B & C on the cosmic mental plane. This description can easily be reconciled with a certain level of the Galactic Federation.

This ashram is composed of the overshadowing officer-guardians of the Great White Brotherhood, in both the Transhimalayan [yin] and Astrum Argentum [yang] streams.
.

This ashram and its dependents, successors and heirs is often symbolized by, and makes abbreviational use of, the three mystical dots .'.

This is the Great White Lodge of Sirius that is the source-potential for the spiritual Orders on Earth, including the Silver Star, Theosophy, the many I Am offerings, Freemasonry, and all the other metaphysical, arcane, and secret societies.

The powerful secret societies are stratified into seven pyramids of spiritual information, each one topped by a "Secret Chief," a "Prince of the Royal Secret," whose role has been passed along by a few, key individuals - down through the ages.

7.2 .Avatar . . . Cosmic Consciousness

This ashram houses the grades of Ipsissimus (A.'.A.'.) and Chohan (Transhimalayan 6). It is said to be beyond triplicities such as being, non-being, and becoming. This is Kether (the Crown) on the Tree of Life.

The A.'.A.'. Manifesto prohibits disclosure of the attainment of this Grade,
to anyone, by the initiate.
.However, the required witness is not so restricted.
Thus, legends are born and circulated.

The Transhimalayan system discourages disclosure of any Grade at any level in the early stages,
but seems to openly give out names at higher levels.

Practically speaking, Avatar is a title for one who has descended to the core of life and has climbed the mountain of initiation to arrive at a state of expanded awareness called cosmic consciousness.

But technically speaking, an Avatar is born fully awake and retains the awareness of cosmic consciousness throughout his or her lifetime.

Both Adi Da Samraj and Sathya Sai Baba, each of the Guru Yoga school (6th ray), openly proclaimed their Avatar status, and Jahl of the I Am school simply informed (7th ray) Arcania,
"I Am Here Now - I Am All in All."

...The leader of the 7th Council is said to be the Count Saint Germain.

He was Prince Ragoczy of Transylvania.

The great initiate known as the Comte de St. Germain was the legitimate son of Franz-Leopold, Prince Ragoczy of Transylvania.
.He admitted, in 1777, to Prince Karl of Hesse, that he was the son of Prince Ragoczy and that he was reared and educated by the last Duc de Medici.

It is generally supposed that this mysterious adept was born in 1710, but the Countess von Gergy declared that she had seen him during that year in Venice, and that he appeared to be between forty-five and fifty years of age at that time.

While the church register at Eckernforde contains a record of his death in 1784, it is known that he was seen upon several occasions subsequent to that date, having attended a Masonic conference in 1785, and having been recognized in Venice in 1788.

The last historical mention of the Comte de St. Germain was in 1822,
at which time he was embarking for India.

The Count has been variously described as a courtier, adventurer, charlatan, inventor, alchemist, pianist, violinist, and amateur composer. But he is best known as a recurring figure in the histories of several strands of occultism - particularly those connected to Theosophy and the Arcane School, where he is referred to as the Master Ragoczy or simply the Master R.

Edgar Cayce, the "Sleeping Prophet," was asked while in trance if Saint Germain was present.
Cayce's reply was: "When needed."

He has been credited with inspiring the Founding Fathers to sign the United States Declaration of Independence, as well as providing the design of the Great Seal of the United States.

Please note that Novus Ordo Seclorum means "New Order of the Ages"
and this should not be confused with
"The New World Order,"
which is the instrument of the Black Lodge

The Count's successor as Chohan of the 7th Ray is indistinct, with wild claims being made everywhere by assorted "channels" and esoteric groups.

This is your Final Notice
.All names assigned to any of these lofty positions are indicative and personified,
but not necessarily the truth of the matter.
.It is the state that these luminaries are associated with that matters.
The names and personalities are subject to glamour.

7.3 The Magus. . . The Word of the Aeon

This ashram houses the legendary Magi of the A.'. A.'., ... like
The Master Therion

... or a Transhimalayan Master of the Wisdom (5) ... like Djwhal Khul >

< Therion was 7th ray, so he properly belongs right here.
.Djwhal Khul was 2nd ray, so he's simply here as a comparison. >

In certain Aegyptian/European respects, this ashram is the office of the Logos (knower) of the Aeon (a .2000-year timespan).

But in certain Oriental aspects, a member of this ashram is required to Undertake a project that will benefit humanity, having both esoteric and exoteric components.

This ashram is located at Chokmah (wisdom) on The Tree of Life, and this corresponds to the Atmic (atomic or spiritual) plane.

The A.'.A.'. requires disclosure of this Grade to everyone. This is the so-called "Curse of the Grade of Magus - that "He must openly declare himself."
.

The 7.3 Magi initiate new perspectives. They bring new information, and tend to find themselves in some sort of unpleasant opposition to the Establishment.

"Lesser" Magi seem to appear every now and then in order to keep the paradigm of the current aeon "on track."

For example, we are now living in the transition period between the Aeon of Osiris, and the Aeon of Horus.

The slain and resurrected Osiris was the prototype for various prophets who were killed and yet were said to rise again, including Mithras, Jesus, and Dionysus.
.


.

During the Aeon of Osiris (circa 4 AD to 1904 AD), The White Brotherhood knew that this patriarchal approach to divine worship would degenerate into totalitarianism
(for did not Set slay Osiris and take his throne?).

So they sent forth various Magi to thwart the evil Establishment
(even as Horus came forth to subdue Set).
In our civilization this included, among others,
Muhammad and Martin Luther.

.

. . . . .
.

Historically, we could list a multitude of Magi, but instead we merely set forth the likenesses of Lao Tze (Lao Tzu), Krishna (the incarnation of Vishnu), Siddhartha (Gautama the Buddha), Tahuti (the Aegyptian God of Wisdom - Thoth), Moses (Moshe, founder of the Hebrew system), Dionysus (a form of the Osiris-Jesus prototype), Mohammed (the founder of Islam), and Perdurabo (who became the Master Therion):
.

. . .

. . .
.Of course, these fellows operated under different rays.

.

The relatively obscure Master Zoser is also associated with this 7th ray ashram.
.


Zoser is known as The Master of Healing. Reputed to be an ancient king of Atlantis, Aegypt and India, he remains in charge of the Knights of the Solar Cross, also known as the Cosmic Physicians of Light.

Little is known of Aegypt's early successors to the throne up until the reign of King Zoser (Djoser) at the end of the 3rd dynasty. Zoser's capital was located at Memphis, on the Nile's west bank near the point where the Two Lands met. The master builder Imhotep erected Zoser's tomb, the step pyramid of Saqqara. This was the first of Aegypt's pyramids.
.

Of all the Chohans, only this seventh (physical plane) Council has leaders who seem to be found in the history books. Prince Ragoczy appears in official records, and here we see an actual physical plane likeness of Djoser.
.Well, it is a bit worn - But at least it's real!.
.


.


.

In any case, the Osiris cycle is rapidly running out of time.

The sixth ray that sustains the Guru Yoga devotion of India abd Rome has been gradually fading out of "incarnation," since 1625 AD, and the seventh ray that supports the integrity of the individual, the representative of the solar Son, Horus, has been increasing in potency and effect since 1675 AD
(compare these dates to the ending of the dark, European Middle Ages).

As can easily be seen, old Set is really hanging on in a most tenacious manner.
But who can stand forever against Horus, the fierce Warlord of the Galaxy?

.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..
.

Despite all the lofty rhetoric about the Magus cited above,
let's keep in mind that these were all men
(not gods or mystical, etheric masters).

Around their lives, fantastic myths have been created.
Anyone can make personal progress to this level.
Just make sure that your efforts support the currently-incumbent Logos.

7.4 Magister. . . The Secret Chiefs

This ashram is sometimes referred to by its mystical title,
The City of the Pyramids.

Members are known as the A.'.A.'. Masters of the Temple
and asthe Transhimalayan Adepts (4).
.

The keyword here is Silence, not because the initiate never speaks or writes, but due to the nature of the associated consciousness that requires the complete suppression of roof-brain-chatter
.see cubit 5.4 Squelch

This is Binah (understanding) on The Tree of Life.
It is also known as the Buddhic plane of intuition.

The entry portal to this Grade is called the Crucifixion, or Crossing the Abyss,
wherein truth-impeding elements of the ego are dissipated.

Portraits of Magister-Adepts are difficult to find.
Some people like their privacy.

7.5 Adeptus . . . The One and Only Inner Order

This is where we find the three grades of Adeptus in the A.'.A.'., and the single Transhimalayan grade of Initiate (3). These constitute the members of the so-called "Inner Order."

This ashram is attributed to Tiphereth, Geburah & Chesed on the Tree of Life, which are the three sub-planes of the causal plane.

The Adeptus is expected to get in touch with his or her Solar Angel (Holy Guardian Angel), and then to follow the Angel's guidance in "burning-off" personal karma.

There are many proclaimed "Inner Orders," but there is only one true Inner Order - it transcends all division, and is based in consciousness itself.

Down through the ages, a lot of people have been involved with this Inner Order
.- in one way or another -
many were operating under another ray, but most of them were/are 7th ray

7.6 The Sorcerer . . . The Many Outer Orders

This cubit is located in a congested, high-population-density area.

This ashram stays busy giving rise, support, and dissolution to an variety of teachers, systems, "ashrams," circles, groups, orders, and their survivors, offshoots, and direct lineage heirs.

Here is where we find the Transhimalayan Disciple (2), and the
grades of Zelator, Practicus & Philosophus of the A.'.A.'.

The address is Yesod, Hod & Netzach on The Tree of Life.
.

This is the realm of the lower mind and the emotional-reaction (astral) body,
which together are called Kama-Manas (desire-mind).

Welcome to the wonders of Las Vegas on the astral plane:
.

. .
. .

.

The initiated disciple performs many tasks on the "spiritual" path,
but at this level most effort is self-enhancing
... and thus a subtle form of dark magic.

Every member of an Outer Order is a Sorcerer - an egocentric magician who has not yet learned the error of his or her ways. This is something that must be worked through. Everyone has to tread this path. The sincere disciple will surely pass through the trials of

.

It is not a mere fabrication to say this sixth plane
of any column or ray
is the equivalent of the Aegyptian Underworld known as
.The Tuat.

Every initiate, of any ray, must pass through the Hell of that stream.
There are always teachers and schools available.

But somebody has to run these manifold Outer expressions of Inner Reality, and it is often the persona of the head of any specific scholl or order that first attracts the seeker of Light.
.Here are a few of them ... purposely un-named.

Some of these leaders were/are sincere and enlightened,
many were/are confused and deviant.

An Outer Order is simply not an Outer Order unless it has a temple, a lodge, an ashram,
a place to meet and perform.

7.7 The Neophyte . . . "The Center of the Universe."

This is the Individual Human Unit, hard on the physical plane.

Everyone who has ever taken the first, official step is a member of this ashram.

The process is called being Born Again, Rebirth,
The Birth of the Christ in the Cave of the Heart,
or just plainly and simply, The First Initiation.

The internal feature of this process has been called
The Vision of Adonai.

The candidate assumes the Transhimalayan grade of Aspirant (1), and is known as a Neophyte in the A.'.A.'., and many other Orders. The procedure is universal

It is found in every culture.
.


.

This is Malkuth (the Kingdom) on the Tree of Life - it is terra firma, the dense physical plane.
Holographic External Reality comes into full manifestation, here and now..

.


.

This is cubit 7.7 - the 49th and final ashram, the beginning and the end.
It is the end of the outflowing, descending spirit that originally radiated out from ashram 1.1.
It is the beginning of the return journey from matter back into Light.

Let there be no mistake here!
Admission to any group through an initiatory ceremony merely bestows honorary membership in this ashram. True membership is reserved for those who experience the rebirth within their own consciousness, and this is not dependent upon an external organization.

After all, there are many societies that simply are not spiritual in nature.


.

The true I ceremony (birth) produces the most highly individualized ego-centeredness
(because he or she has momentarily become The Point 1.1),
and thus the candidate realizes and proclaims,
"I am the center of the Universe!"
