    I n t r o d u c t i o n

    The following chapters are a transcription of two days of

    lectures given by Duan Trajkovi in Rio de Janeiro in 2011.

    Duan lives in Serbia and is known in the Holy Order as

    Frater Aureus, having been admitted as an AA

    Probationer in 2001. He currently works as an Adeptus Major

    6=5, SI Cohen, Memphis Misraim, associated to the work

    of many orders from Eastern and Western Traditions. He is

    the author of four Serbian books, on Qabalah, Astral

    Projection, Enochian Magic and Mafia.

    The following lectures lead us through a journey into the

    teachings of the Schools of West and East, focused in the

    Thelemic path of the Argentum Astrum. This work discuss

    key concepts as the difference between mystical and

    magickal paths, the practice of Yoga, the Buddhist way, how

    to efficiently keep your diary, the performing of rituals, astral

    projection methods, the communication with the Holy

    Guardian Angel, Qabalistic concepts, Enochian magick, and

    more.

    This book is not intended for beginners, but gives many

    valuable suggestions and impressions to the advanced

    student who is already treading the path.

    C h a p t e r I

    Magick and Mysticism

    Fundaments of Qabalah

    Thelema

    I want to thank everyone for coming in such large numbers,

    especially those younger ones who traveled all this way to

    here, and for taking your time to satisfy your spiritual needs.

    Right now, I just want to make clear that this seminar is

    designed for people with previous occult experience, and

    that it is not for beginners, although it does not mean that we

    will not tackle a few issues that are for the beginners. I do not

    want to waste a lot of time getting to know you, because the

    seminar is already complicated enough. I will give only a

    brief introduction to it in order to better understand the

    whole issue which is before us. For the next two days we will

    tackle in some detail all the Eastern and Western theories and

    practices encountered in our work, and most importantly, we

    must decide what is of benefit to us and to discard what is

    not. The highest art is to distinguish important from

    unimportant. Consider that.

    Magick and Mysticism are like left and right side of your

    body. You cannot have both sides equally developed. There

    is always one more active than the other. So, for someone the

    Magick is better option, and Mysticism is better for

    somebody else. Let us make a difference at the beginning of

    what Magick and Mysticism are.

    Basically it comes down to the definition of Magick, which is

  • 7

    the change in accordance with the nature of True Will. But no

    one says whose Will. Mysticism is more flexible in relation to

    it. The relation between Mysticism and Magick are perhaps

    demonstrated the best in the relation between our

    unavoidable destiny outside and our free will within.

    Consider this thought.

    Let us focus on Magick. What we mostly know about the

    Magic is generally related to Thelema. Basically, most of

    aspirants today identify Magick with the works of Aleister

    Crowley. It is true that thanks to him we have a strong

    system which we define as Magick, but it is very important

    to know that Crowley was a result of earlier traditions which

    have left an impression on him, as he left on us. In fact,

    Magick and Mysticism are just two lanes in a one way street.

    Both lead to the same goal. And that is Illumination. Magick

    is based on the premise that the individual Will makes

    change within the source, and therefore makes projection of

    results outside. Mysticism tells us that the Will is external to

    result itself, and that brings our focus to the external forces

    which are reflected in ourselves.

    You can climb into the house of Lord, but also you can make

    your house divine if you settle the Lord inside. This is one of

    the roughest divisions of our Art and Science; division

    between Mysticism and Magick. Take note that the word

    Absolute itself does not imply a course. Just a direction. And

    that is not the same thing.

    Alan, please draw us the Tree of Life.

    (After a few seconds). It is quite enough, thank you. This is a

    perfect explanation of how the Western mind looks at

    Reality. I said that there are two lanes, or courses. One from

  • 8

    below, one from above. Our Western mind is accustomed to

    look at things from below. Therefore, the method of the

    aspirants of Magick, is too often the method of stress and

    struggles, as opposed to mysticism, which is a method of

    delivering and permitting. In other words, the mystic began

    drawing Tree of Life from Malkuth, and not from Kether, as

    Alan did.

    These two crucial ways are called Flash of Lighting and the

    Rise of the Snake. Kabbalah, as the main body of the Western

    occult point of view, starts from the top; its path is the path

    of descent of Spirit to the mundane world. Path of Mysticism,

    on the other hand, is the way of climbing up the mountain

    Abiegnus. Both methods define the same reality, but do not

    constitute the same point of view.

    Do you understand the essence of these two diametrically

    opposed views?

    That's it. These are the two single Illuminations. Think about

    how the Snake is wrapped around the path, while Lightning

    involves Sephiroth.

    And there is a problem. 10 Sephiroth dont correspond

    perfectly to the 7 Chakras. This is how we might adjust our

    view of rising the Snake. As you can see, there are 22 Paths

    which cannot perfectly fit in the work with Chakras.

    Although we have small channels, like N is, which can

    bear some relation to it, this remark is far from similarities to

    the Paths of the Tree of Life.

    Could someone tell me what is the Path, and what is the

    Sephirah?

    Answer: One is static, the other is dynamic.

    Which one is static, and which one is dynamic then?

    Answer: The Path is dynamic, Sephira is static.

    Think about this now, if you look at Sephira Tiphareth as the

    Sun, on one hand, and the Path of the Sun on Tree of Life, on

    the other hand; which one is dynamic, and which one is

    static then?

    Answer: The Path is active.

    Maybe. The biggest problem we have with Mysticism today,

    and why most of discussions are going on, is because their

    system is embedded within Eastern conception of life, and

    within the concept of growth. It was determined that way

    from early times. In contrast, we Westerns have no

    relationship to embedded systems which we follow, we

    arbitrarily modify and adapt them during our progress, and

    rather late in our life we start getting the knowledge of
