Genesis of a Golden Dawn Magus

Before the Golden Dawn - for me - there was MAGICK.

I can still remember my first faltering steps down the magickal path as a youth.

The derth of symbol of my Baptist childhood yielded to the Pentacostal passion for social rules - until the bow broke on the ship my parents had set adrift over the seas of my soul.

I can still remember at sixteen seeking to fill the metaphysical void left by the vacuousness of my religious upbringing.

I remember, for example, checking out every book in the public library on hypnosis and devoting endless hours to hypnotising and reprogramming myself.

My awakening to authentic spirituality came on the heels of the sixties, the Haight Ashbury, and the Summer of Love. Thus - as a young man in the Army - I discovered both the Beatles and LSD.

The psychedelic shamanism of my twenties catapulted me into a world of magic - with the tip of the arrow pointing towards my future mission as a Magus - a mission that began one fateful night atop the Great Pyramid in Egypt.

This was the night I consecrated my magic wand - and the Spirit of the Magus I was to one day become descended from on high - informing my Ego with new purpose and direction.

From my first spiritual awakening as a young man - through my first full enlightenment under the light of a total Solar eclipse - when I realized that beyond my Ego I am everyone and everything - the center of a Universe which has no circumference and in which every point is the center - which is God.

There has been one leitmotiv that has guided and shaped my entire spiritual quest and development - the notion that sense of self - my ego and day to day sense of identity - is just a tiny part of who I truly am...

...And that if I could only make myself and my body a pure and worthy vessel for the Divine Solar Genius that lies beyond my ego - that I might even here on Earth come to fully embody the Solar essence of who - like you - I truly am.

This blog is the story of my personal spiritual adventure - unique - yet echoed in the spiritual awakening of countless Brothers and Sisters across our planet at the beginning of this new Millennium and the beginning age of Aquarius.

David Griffin and the Philosophers' Stone

The PHILOSOPHERS' STONE of HERMETIC ALCHEMY grants both immortality and the ability to transmute lesser metals into purest gold.

Rumors of the powers of the Philosopher's Stone unfortunately have led to countless fools wasting vast fortunes and entire lives in the misguided and vain pursuit to become rich by manufacturing gold.

Hermetic Masters derisively refer to these greedy, would-be alchemists as
puffers - because of the way they puff at the fires in their "alchemical" laboratories.

Hermetic sages, however, have espoused the truth over and over:
The secret of the Philosopher's Stone actually lies within
the human body itself!
The human body is true Prima Materia of the Opus Magnum (or Great Work) of Hermetic Alchemy - And he true goal of alchemy is the transmutation of the matter of the Human Body (Lead) into pure SOLAR ENERGY (Gold).

Great Work involves the cultivation of a Solar Body of Light and is accomplished by cooking the matter of the human body with the subtle fires of the body itself.

The most powerful and creative of these subtle fires of the human body are

Hermetic Alchemy, therefore, is in reality a Western school of SACRED SEXUALITY, much like the alchemical traditions within Tantra and Taoism in the East.

Upon the completion of this
Opus Magnum, in the final alchemical separation and projection, the perfected alchemist separates his or her consciousness from the human body at the moment of death and projects it into the Solar Body of Light, thus becoming consciously immortal in the Solar universe that exists inside of light.

Paradoxically, the discovery of the true Philosopher's Stone and the mastery of the transmutation of the physical body, also bestows upon the Hermetic Master the ability to effect alchemical transmutation with vulgar metals in the outer world as well!

By the grace of God - And thanks to the guidance of the physical Hermetic Masters known in the Golden Dawn as "Secret Chiefs" ...

... I, David Griffin, have been blessed to discover
the secret of the Philosopher's Stone and to master the art of alchemical transmutation.

This has opened up a hitherto unknown branch of magic known as
Alchemical Magic, that can only be practiced by the Magus having discovered the secret of the Philosophers' Stone and mastered the art of alchemical transmutation.

In attestation of the wisdom of
Hermetic Masters (Secret Chiefs) of the Golden Dawn ...

... and in attestation of the power of the
Philosophers' Stone, I offer to you the above video entitled:
