(podcast) The Ayahuasca Story - Aubrey Marcus


In the heart of the amazon I was given a chance to partake in an ayahuasca ceremony conducted by one of the great masters left in the world, Maestro Orlando Chujandama. The world this opened was one of pure potentiality where anything was possible. Unequipped, and concerned that I may forget everything that i had seen I found my way back to the hut and recorded this video. It is raw, honest, and full of unsavory up the nostril camera angles, but perhaps it plays some small part in reinforcing the truth I was blessed to encounter. For the full story, please visit my blog at http://www.warriorpoet.us/












This is the podcast that I still get several emails and comments about every day. It details my journey to the Amazon where I took Ayahuasca, facing my own mortality before being helped to a dimension of unlimited possibilities. This was also where I announced that I would be going by my middle name Aubrey, the name of my grandfather.

(video clip) The Hero's Journey in Film



We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we will be with all the world....Joseph Campbell


A 10-minute exploration of the human journey of the hero as seen through the eyes of some of cinemas most celebrated heroes and legends. A film by Ciaran Michael Vejby, inspired by Joseph Campbell's "Hero With a Thousand Faces."

(writing by me) Notes on Chapter Eleven of Lon DuQuette's - Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot


"It takes no streatch of the imagination to see the H.G.A. [Holy Guardian Angel] as the prince who awakens with a kiss (Knowledge and Conversation) the sleeping beauty (the unenlightened soul), and takes her to the palace of his father the king (God), where the new couple will eventually become king and queen themselves (supreme enlightenment and re-absorption into god-head)...." - Lon DuQuette

(article) The Empress' Bouquet: An Analysis of the Floral Symbolism in ATU III - R. Joseph Capet


The following are notes from the article The Empress' Bouquet and it's examination into the relation between Mary and The Whore of Babylon.

 Click here to read the full article.

[In the Egyptian system] we have a set of five figures, arranged in a series of complementary opposing pairs, bringing together in dialectical relationship: activity and passivity (Horus and Harpocrates), transcendence and immanence (Osiris and Horus/Harpocrates), and creation and destruction (Isis and Nephthys).

[In the system of India] it is found that the fivefold pattern once again holds true: activity and passivity (Vishnu and Shiva), transcendence and immanence (Brahma and Vishnu/Shiva), and creation and destruction (Shakti/Kali). What is more, it holds true in roughly the same pattern of relationships, creation and destruction again being dual aspects of a goddess who is the consort both of a deity representing transcendence and of a deity representing immanence (who are, in some sense, aspects of each other), with the immanent deity being twinned as an active and a passive god.

[In the European system], the difficulty is to locate, within the Christian context, a destructive aspect of Mary which would be cognate to Kali and Nephthys. Crowley's insight is to recognize that Mary appears not once, but twice in the Book of Revelation—once in her creative aspect as the Virgin Mary (represented in Revelation in the figure of the Woman of Revelation), and once in her destructive aspect as the Whore of Babylon.

Thus we see the Whore not simply as a goddess of destruction, but as a goddess who, by virtue of her participation in a pair, is a goddess of creative destruction, like Kali.

Once again, we have a functioning pentad: activity and passivity (the Son and the Holy Spirit), transcendence and immanence (the Father and the Son/Holy Spirit), and creation and destruction (the Virgin Mary/the Whore of Babylon).

It stands established, then, that the following system of correspondences is possible and that Crowley appears to be leaving us an abundance of clues, starting with the 'lotus of Isis', that encourage us to establish such a system: Osiris/Brahma/the Father, Horus/Vishnu/the Son, Harpocrates/Shiva/the Holy Spirit, Isis/Shakti/Mary, and Nephthys/Kali/the Whore of Babylon.

(article) A Selection of Q&A writings on How to Change the World - Michael Laitman


"The whole world is a reflection of what you have within."

"It turns out that I must correct only myself and my perception that the world supposedly exists outside of me. I begin to sense that indeed the world is all within me, and thus I correct reality. It turns out that the correction consists not in changing my relations with others, but in correcting my current perception that others exist outside of me and are not part of me."
