Tradizione e Rivelazione


La Tradizione, metafisicamente, non può esser che una. Ma quando avviene il passaggio dal mondo iperuranio a quello attuale, anche questa perfetta Entità subisce la rifrazione nelle coppie degli opposti. Così, nella storia delle dottrine politiche e religiose, incontriamo decine, centinaia, migliaia di idee differenti che passano sotto il termine Tradizione. Come tutto ciò che è molteplice, si può tentare la sintesi attraverso la riconduzione al sistema binario. Così potremo dire che ci sono, sostanzialmente, due grandi concezioni, politicamente molto distinte.

La prima sostiene che la Tradizione è data e immutabile, proviene da fonti divine, non può essere oggetto di indagine umana e va accolta per fede.

La seconda ritiene che la Tradizione non è scevra da errori del passato, e che il suo compito è procedere nella rivelazione progressiva.

Resta evidente che tesi e antitesi si riunificano nel fondamento metafisico, per cui la dottrina dell’Unità non può che essere Unica. Chi conosce i rudimenti della Dottrina Iniziatica dovrebbe sapere che Jakin e Boaz, le colonne che rappresentano le antitesi mondane, non sono che l’ingresso nel Tempio, dove la regola è andare oltre per vedere l’Unità delle cose. Ma questo vale nella pienezza del Logos, le-olam avah, nel mondo a venire, e non in quello attuale. Qui la differenza è importante e marca concezioni profondamente diverse del lavoro iniziatico e, soprattutto, della vita.

Proponiamo un sondaggio per vedere quali sono le preferenze e le proporzioni statistiche in rapporto alle due tesi. Grazie per il contributo.

Dawn of the Morning Star



Coming forth from the old utopia that machines would have delivered men and women from hard work, the optimism of the post-war dream became a powerful illusion for a whole generation. Allen Ginsberg’s Howl is a rare creation of poetry where this illusion is seen in its full reality of dangerous mistake. The main part preferred to follow the Western way of the illusion of the access to a mystical dimension simply buing a prohibite substance, as it was promised by books such as The The Politics of Ecstasy by Timothy Leary.

The kind of awareness given in poetry by Ginsberg has been sociologically explained in the clearest form by Aldous Huxley, revisiting his book Brave New World, where he indicates the way the modern system of personal control and influence generated by the establishment  contemplates voluntary submission of the the individuals. The difference with old-fashioned authoritarian powers is given by this attitude, which  in the Huxley’s vision, it consists not in the use of the force as the nationalist dictatorships but in a new fashioned system consisting in the voluntary submission to the voice of the landlord, that is, of course, television.

“Awakened and reawakened” we used to say, within the persuasion that internet would have been the Aquarian media that would have give us the possibility to go beyond that brain-wash machinery that is the television. And really it can be.

Notwithstanding with this statement, we have to fight with the infiltration of the system, which works to disqualify each instance that goes to promis freedom. In a metaphysical level, we exposed the thesis in the essay called “The Law of Malkuth” where an explanation of the onthology of the passage of each soul in the earth is not automatically connected to freedom, but exclusively as exception.

How may it continues this speech?


If our thought starts from the previous article, the statement that the passage of the soul on the earth and freedom to be build as exception shoul appear better comprehensible. The soul on earth is not free but into captivity, according to its inner qualities. In contemporary Western world, there is not a dictator who gives the rule but the system is able to generate fear and anxiety and to suggest conditioned ways to have the illusion to repair from it. The system is able to support several patterns. Therefore, the way once called bourgeoise, the traditional way of alignment to the system’s requests in behaviour, belief and social committment, maybe esactly complementary with other antithetical lifestyles. Concerning these antagonist solution, drugs have been a formidable tool for normalization and control of situation with a potential impact.

Drugs are not tools for liberation but, in a more simple way, amplifiers of sensations. As noted Mr. Huxley, it is impossible that a person may have exclusively positive feelings. Therefore, soon or later according to the sensitiveness of the person, the feelings of fear and anxiety will be amplified, and this is the way drug works against the person who uses it. Ginsberg told “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness” to express this concept and he himself started years later to avoid drugs and to introduce meditation and mantram. 

This kind of awareness, since the 1955, years when Howl was written, should have produced a new mood to be hipster, with a consciousness that the mystycal side is more powerful than drug: and this is the kind of utopia that we have been looking for, all around the world, to meet people believing in this concept and in this way to feel life. Therefore we have been meeting people involved in magic practices, Golden Dawn, Morning Star, Ordo Templi Orientis, Martinism, Cohen. Some of us even reached important degrees inside some of these Orders, but we still haven’t found a group really focused on the spiritual advamncement of the Adept, rather than the power of the organization.

What a disillusion when you see that some organizations which pretend to be the depositary of teachings that enable the Adept to inner spirituality, they are instead under control of conservative and reactionary powers.

But we continues in our utopian journey, even if we should remain a small group, as in the better R+C and Qabbalist tradition.


… but it is different from what we used to dream. This is what we register after more than 15 years since the beginning of the XXI century. The beginning of an epoch really different from the past is an evidence under everyone’s eyes: internet and the world wide conncection are not an hypothesis but something real inside our socket. No question this caused an industrial revolution and a viral change in everyone’s life. The fact that is all about communication is completely inherent the Aquarian symbolism, therefore the prophecy is accomplished.

So far about the technological changes. We have been among the enthusiastic claimers of this change, persuaded that people, once upon allowed to enter in touch each other with tools no-so-expensive and really open to everyone, well, we have been thinking that people would have generated spontaneous clusters of self-awareness, a new engagement into a collective transformation. Here a short movie comparing the new open society of contemporary world with the dreams at the beginning of past century, the so-called belle-epoque.

The dream of the people who lived that belle epoque, in between the end of the XIX century and the beginning of the XX, was powerful and in some way similar to the present time, because the idea was that technology would have delivered people from hard work, creating opportunities for a more full experience in life, no more conditioned by material needs and finally opened to the spiritual life. A movie like Metropolis (1925) may be the better manifesto of this utopia, which roots are deep in the past century, with spiritualist movements as the Rosicrucians and the Transcendentalists.

Unfortunately, the call for freedom of the past century was buried under the ashes of two terrible world wars. It happen that after all those horror America entered in the culture of Europe, and in the popular culture this became the import of the music of  that desperate call for freedom coming from black people, the blues.

Blues merged with a lot of things. First one, the jazz which is the music through by the black musician where proposed to the white public of the concert. Especially in New York, the criticians began to talk about jazz as the music equivalent of abstractism in painting. So it happen for the upper class and the sophisticated universitaries neighbours. Here, another hybridation happened with the new literature of the beat, who was searching for the true roots of this mood, looking for discoveries that are inside the anthropological questions of the inner nature of music.

Books very different but very close each other as may be Music and Trance by Gilbert Rougé or Really the Blues by Mezz Mezzrow, that impulse to travel all around America to find a lost master, as the young Bob Dylan did on the footprints of Woody Guthrie, the anthropological taste for the blues as it happened in Alan Lomax and many others searching for the early origin of the blues in the fields of cotton and the reinterpretation in Europe by Alexis Korner and John Mayall that was the place where the early Rolling Stones started their adventure that would have drive them in Chicago for mastering their second album in the very place of the radial diffusion of the blues: the Chess Records, Chicago 2120 South Michigan Avenue.

That’s right, see how it continues…

Universal and Transnational Order


Dearest,

it is with his incomparable higher elegance and style that our mystical V.H. Brother D.B., the W.D., seems to be have gone away, celebrating his Last Ritual.  There’s no need to add nothing else, because the news is even iper-inflated and we want no more and no less tell you about the invisible ray that came to us as communication by the Astral Moon where the Resonance is now enveloped, waiting the final destination according what is explained in human terms in the Chandogya Upanisad, about the decree that has been promulgated after the increment of obscure energy, to break the veil of the dark light, creating new transnational currents to have access to that Hidden Knowledge coming from the Morning Star.

Therefore, with this proposal, here a communication whose aim is to enhance & empower the connective feeling between Orders which are committed to the expansion of individual consciousness of their Adepts, and to enlarge the federate approach in reason of the extension of the emancipation against the obscurantist forces that still have their hands on the power’s institution.

That Black Star liberated from money and from each kind of metallic attraction the symbolic personality of our V.H.B. and M::, so that we may be more aware about the transient dimension of this life upon the earth and opening a new current to feel the Spiritual Path accepting the mantle and the mask of the Unknown Philosopher.

Finally, this Letter is addressed to all the actual and potential Adept who are interested in create communication and exchange of patents to generate a current and a wave of Initiated Societies with the aim to work sincerely on the spiritual side, far from the material wish to make money and able to edify the Invisible Transnational Temple.

This Temple, whose place is already working and whose home is everywhere there is a Brother of this Spiritual Current, opens its door to all that personalities who have become aware that the Spiritual Path is the only way to improve our individual consciousness and go beyond the limits imposed by the obscurantist forces which driving governments and institution and go towards a better world, a space and time of freedom and growth in health and consciousness.

Welcome to that ones who’ll contact us to enlarge and increase this Hidden Light.

Third ebsn conference.pdf


In antico, era nei luoghi alti che si celebravano le offerte agli dei.

È quindi del tutto naturale cominciare la narrazione dalle montagne. Al momento in cui scrivo, del resto, non so nemmeno se tutto ciò avrà un seguito. Lascio che fluisca come scrittura automatica, come se ci fosse un dio o un demone a ispirare le parole che qui si succedono.

Ritrovare le origini non è possibile, non si può dire l’ultima parola. Entrare nella sfera del mito significa avere accesso al luogo in cui la realtà che si afferma si contraddice. Del resto apparirà bizzarro che, a fronte delle decine di libri che esistono sul tema, questo libro si presenta dissimile e con voci non allineate al modo usuale di trattare l’argomento.

E, tra le montagne di questo luogo privilegiato della mitologia, l’isola a tre punte scelta dal destino come laboratorio per molte cose, forse troppe, ecco apparire sull’alba dei monti Nebrodi il vero nome, l’etimo che presiede alle loro cime, che è dato dal possente Nimrod.

NIMRODUn nome asiatico, questo: e per legittimarne l’uso si dovrà in primo luogo ricordare ilruolo poco noto della Teogonia di Esiodo, che rappresenta la perfetta connessione tra pensiero greco e origini antichissime, come notò Ettore Romagnoli, cui dobbiamo la ripresa delle rappresentazioni classiche al teatro di Siracusa, a partire dagli inizi del ‘900.

Sumere, prima ancora che assire e babilonesi: le origini di Nimrod sono mesopotamiche. Secondo il libro della Genesi (10,8-12) era figlio di Cush, della discendenza di Cam, figlio di Noè Nimrod [נִמְרוֹד. ] è detto «grande cacciatore al cospetto del Signore», tratto che ne rivela un’altra caratterisitica fondamentale, quella di essere sacerdote di Orione. Orione, rappresentato nell’atto di brandire un bastone, lui, il possente cacciatore, che fa sua preda ogni animale dello Zodiaco, per eccellenza la figura umana nel cielo, la prima rappresentazione della divinità, il perno occulto di tutte le religioni.

Seguendo il racconto biblico, Nimrod fu il primo fra gli uomini a costituire un regno sulla terra. È scritto che «L’inizio del suo regno fu Babele, Uruk, Accad e Calne, nella regione di Shinar. Da quella terra si portò ad Assur e costruì Ninive, Recobòt-Ir e Kalach, e Resen tra Ninive e Kalach; quella è la grande città». Le fonti dicono che sposò sua madre Semiramide, che alcuni dicono anche Babalon.

Il nome di Nimrod è trascritto da Dante Alighieri come Nembrotto, a causa del quale «pur un linguaggio nel mondo non s’usa», rievocando con questa allitterazione il mistero di Babele, la confusione delle lingue.

Viene la luce dal cielo, e i monti Nebrodi celano così questo mistero, se ne ammantano.

Attendono che il Cacciatore sorga al di sopra delle loro vette, seguito dalla Stella Cane.
