>>The white magician uses the kundalini force as it is transmitted via the central spinal channel. The black magician uses the inferior channels, dividing the fourfold energy in two units, which mount via the two channels, leaving the central one dormant. Hence it will be apparent that one works with duality and the other with unity. On the planes of duality, therefore, it is apparent why the black magician has so much power. The plane of unity for humanity is the mental plane. The planes of diversity are the astral and the physical. Hence the black magician is of more apparent power than the white brother on the two lower planes in the three worlds.<< end of quote from DK/AB
Except. Not. Or perhaps not now for....
In the white Magician: kundalini [not the dramatic cleansing preparation fire by friction often called "kundalini" ; nor the solar fire that follows--but the electric fire of Kundalini; can rise in the 3 channels. This is "spoken" of in the Vedas and has a
Simultaneously, like a fountain. Rising out of the "seat", first chakra [corresponding to a chakra, a vortex in the center of Terra]: grounded--continuous.
Total effortless stillness: a hush beyond silence.
Please look at the implications re: >>it is apparent why the black magician has so much power.... Hence the black magician is of more apparent power than the white brother on the two lower planes in the three worlds.<<
What initiates that "esoteric" state of all 3..... Certainly there needs be a foundation of balance. The energy balanced and flowing up the center channel in meditation. With that the key: Fierce Compassion. Compassion for Life and Compassion for life here on Terra. And when initiated [please: not talking together about a permanent state, may only be for a moment in linear time] it is no longer true :
>> the black magician is of more apparent power than the white brother on the two lower planes <<.
So watch: you become aware of an injustice that ignites your Fierce Compassion. Initially often taking you out of a balanced state. As you come back into balance is that exquisite electric fire flowing up all 3 channels. If so you may wish to stop for a moment, go inside and do your Magic. Many levels of magic but perhaps it is noon [you are on your lunch break :)] and this is initiated: go inside [surround yourself with light] and do the basics to bring about ......
>>in the later initiations, the positive use of the spiritual energy supersedes the
equilibrized use of soul force<<
Well I'm not in the later......
Yes, but watch and see if the [at first] momentary possibility may not unfold out of 'Fierce Compassion'.
Just to open new possibilities from old friends.
and please remember: so no confusion.
Total effortless stillness: a hush beyond silence . Indeed Power at it's source always seems to have that quality.
The traditional "rules" of White Magic take on even more importance here: power without responsibility leads to tyranny. The foundation of heart and mind take on more importance: greater power "demands", calls for greater responsibility; and indeed greater compassion. This is not initiated through technique or discipline or "tool kits"; although certainly there needs be a balanced foundation---Balanced. The chord to our work together is the key here as well: a fierce Compassion.
