ON THE FOUR PROCESSES OF INTERNAL INITIATION IN BLACK MAGICK Part 4 of 4:
In my last three posts on the processes of Internal Initiation we covered the Purification, Intensification, and Consummation. All of which leads to the final process: Realization.This is the culmination of the entire process; the stage of the breakthrough in understanding and perspective that will result in manifested internal change and evolving growth of self. However, one should understand that this final realization is in itself more an emerging process than instant epiphany.You will likely not leave the Working ( ritual) chamber an instantly transformed person. It will not make you a better person, nor more powerful, though it may feel so immediately afterward.That effect wears off fast. However, this change in being will over time manifest its change within you,sometimes dramatically, oftentimes in more subtle aspects. A good analogy of this phenomenon is ones 21st Birthday.This is truly a great time of change for an individual, as one has officially lost all associations with their now past adolescence.The day of this event is monumental,spent with partying and fanfare.Yet the next morning it's business as usual,and one doesn't feel any more mature than the day before.Yet both socially and legally you are seen in a new stage of life, with new freedoms and responsibilities that begin to manifest in life. Within a few years, the obvious effects of biological changes of full adulthood begin to change ones perspective and cognition as the brain finally completes its growth into maturity. Ones worldview begins to evolve and change, now quite a different person than that 20 year old before. The process of Realization in internal Initiation is much the same, and it's changes to your evolving self will likewise gradual manifest their effects to your psyche. Each Realization is a step forward in your self-deification. As each persons Initiatory path is unique, these described processes may seem obscure and obtuse to the unpracticed novice, but to those who walk the path to KNOW and SEE, they are guiding lights of enlightenment. Stay to the Left of the Path, my Dark Brethren.
