“Is it possible to make contracts with spirits whereby the magician becomes for a stipulates time the master of an elemental being.”
“True black magic is performed with the aid of a demoniacal spirit, who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life.”
Manly P. Hall
If you don’t know who he is, then it’s high time you found out. Some believe that he became an overnight success from a ‘preacher’ to a author, philosopher, to wealthy businessman. But, do you know the real story? The secret side?
First of all, he was a Freemason. Not just any ole’ Freemason, either! He was the highest of the high. Second only to Albert Pike, he was recognized as a 33 degree but was given the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite. Then, there’s the ‘secret’ degrees…the “Blue Degrees”. Therein lies the real mysteries and secrets the the secret societies and their spiritual ‘enlightenment’.
One of his books called him a… “Masonic/Hermetic/Qabalisitc/Rosicrucian/Symbolical/Philosopher”
That about wraps it up with a tiny red bow. Actually a bloody red bow!
He founded the Philosopher Research Society in Los Angeles dedicated to the study of ‘religion’, metaphysics, and the occult.
Some understanding of the intricate theory and practice of ceremonial magic may be derived from a brief consideration of its underlying premises.
First. The visible universe has an invisible counterpart, the higher planes of which are peopled by good and beautiful spirits; the lower planes, dark and foreboding, are the habitation of evil spirits and demons under the leadership of the Fallen Angel and his ten Princes.
Second. By means of the secret processes of ceremonial magic it is possible to contact these invisible creatures and gain their help in some human undertaking. Good spirits willingly lend their assistance to any worthy enterprise, but the evil spirits serve only those who live to pervert and destroy.
Third. It is possible to make contracts with spirits whereby the magician becomes for a stipulated time the master of an elemental being.
Fourth. True black magic is performed with the aid of a demoniacal spirit, who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, with the understanding that after death the magician shall become the servant of his own demon. For this reason a black magician will go to inconceivable ends to prolong his physical life, since there is nothing for him beyond the grave.
The most dangerous form of black magic is the scientific perversion of occult power for the gratification of personal desire.
“While the black magician at the time of signing his pact with the elemental demon may be fully convinced that he is strong enough to control indefinitely the powers placed at his disposal, he is speedily undeceived. Before many years elapse he must turn all his energies to the problem of self-preservation. A world of horrors to which he has attuned himself by his own covetousness looms nearer every day, until he exists upon the edge of a seething maelstrom, expecting momentarily to to be sucked down into its turbid depths.
Afraid to die — because he will become the servant of his own demon — the magician commits crime after crime to prolong his wretched earthly existence. Realizing that life is maintained by the aid of a mysterious universal life force which is the common property of all creatures, the black magician often becomes an occult vampire, stealing this energy from others. According to mediaeval superstition, black magicians turned themselves into werewolves and roamed the earth at night, attacking defenseless victims for the life force contained in their blood.”
I guarantee that if you look hard enough, you will find symbolism connected to these ‘magicians’ which connect them to the occult. Also to the secret societies, as well.
