from the that's-another-satori dept.
I was reading a thread the other day right here on The Beast Bay called "Is a Redeemer Required in Thelema?" One person stated, "The HGA [Holy Guardian Angel] is the Universe." This in turn surfaced some re-occuring questions in me.
I have seen this attitude reflected in some instances within Crowley's writings as well, suggesting that the nature of the experience is Samadhic. Although HGA is a central tenet, few people seem to want to discuss it. Most people place Knowledge and Conversation of the HGA at Tiphareth. This has always confounded me.
Does placing HGA at Tiphareth mean:
Or does it mean:
So that being said . . .
Is the K&C of the HGA placed at Kether? Is the K&C of the HGA placed at Tiphareth?
Is experiencing Samadhi placed at Kether? Is experiencing Samadhi placed at Tiphareth?
Like a curious newspaper reporter, I have hounded certain individuals with these questions, "Is Samadhi Knowledge and Conversation with the HGA?"
When posed this most people reply no, because the HGA speaks to us throughout our entire lifetime . . .
Samadhi perhaps isn't the HGA itself, but is it the primary "Knowledge and Conversation"?
Hopefully you intelligent and creative Beast Bay readers can throw me some wise words or maybe a direction to search in for the intended meanings that Crowley was after with the HGA concept.
