Teaching is the best way of learning. The role of the Superior is to be a fellow sufferer, a wandering companion, a witness of the sacred act of the Oath which Student undertakes.
About Grades denotement
Every movement of Genius is accompanied by authenticity, from the way of his speech, walking, and even so corrupt things such as tics; it seems that the authenticity of Genius is magnificent in things that an ordinary man would suffer in the eyes of critics.
On certain words within the A∴A∴ and on some considerations about the formula of a Neophyte
Above all, one should take into account that M....M is not a word but a formula, that only represents or resembles a subtle inner story, and in its proper form it is necessary to get it from yours Zelator.
Practicus and Philosophus. On Jñāna and Bhakti Yoga. Also, on IAO formula.
The way of brilliant Mind and Mercury and the fiery path of Love and Venus. Those two directions are clearly contained in these two instructions: invoke often and inflame thyself in prayer.
Invocation and Evocation. On trance. And some considerations about Moral and Ethics of the Æon
Methods of Invocation and Evocation are related to the Sephiroth of Mercury and Venus. Again, those are two types or two aspects of one Path. In other words, Invocation is the same as Evocation, but from a different point of view.
On certain thoughts concerning Thelema
Thelema is a condition for every good Magick, not the contrary; only after understanding this a serious work can begin.
Astral projection. Fundament of dreams. Also, on trance techniques.
A change in consciousness that is experienced during the trance and astral projection is more valuable than all the seminars and workshops on which you have ever been. Without experience of astral projection, the whole system of Western and Eastern teachings is just another fairy tale.
A∴A∴ – Astrum Argenteum
The Order of the Star called S. S. is, in respect of its existence upon the Earth, an organized body of men and women distinguished among their fellows by the qualities here enumerated. They exist in their own Truth, which is both universal and unique.
About the body of light, and a specific scent that follows its course
In order to observe with your astral eyes, you have to start looking with altered consciousness. You have to acquire a conditioned reflex to change the state of consciousness at the moment when you step into the new body and look upon things from a new perspective.
Book of the Heart girt with a Serpent
What has to be told openly here is that the Book of the Heart Girt with a Serpent can be everything that an Aspirant of the Golden Dawn would ever need, and all the tasks and instructions of our Order are only pale echoes of its verses. A book that at the same time consumes … Continue reading Book of the Heart girt with a Serpent

On relationship between the Student and the Superior
The relationship between the Student and the Superior does not represent teaching, but rather associating, like an attempt to explain the smell of a rose when the Student has never smelled anything of that kind before.
A comfortable temptation
The Probationer “invokes often”, without glow, without desire, without passion for the result. His only passion is the Great Work itself, which is so far from him and in which he does not possess any Knowledge.
On the art of Conjuration.
Each pronunciation of the name is an act of Invocation. Every letter and every instance of naming things, whether known or unknown, is a true conjuration.
Hide and Seek
At the very beginning, the Probationer is encouraged to scrabble all that blurred area which he knows as Curriculum or program of his Grade, as he will be thrown into the fire; in every way, in all aspects, as much as the Superior feels it is possible. This fire is by no means an aggressive, militant creation, the one that feeds by the Probationer's fear and weaknesses.
Every star constelation thus have its own structure and nature of flight – faster, slower, closer to or more away from the center, aproaching, or going away, but still gravitationaly attached to A∴A∴ “central station”.
Parts of heaven
There are usually three periods of Probation, such as a standard school composition, that has an introduction, elaboration, and conclusion. However, although true works of art are not subject to generalization, some common indications can be noticed.
The best definition for me is that it includes the representation of the Reality beyond the decimal system that the traditional human mind is cultivating, it is simply Morse's alphabet for the Cosmos.
Short notice about Oaths
The Oath is fulfilled with the awareness of the task. By its acceptance, you have already passed on.
About the Oaths and certain aspects of the Being
There is something about this place, but I cannot say with certainty that it is a task. I would rather say it is the term of inertia, but leave this second aside until the first one is realized.
The Art of Assumption
Magical link is a minimal condition for transfer of Force, simply speaking. The simplicity of this definition does not diminish its truthfulness.
