How strange it is that he refers to my article as “a hatchet job”, considering the fact that he has become some sorts of a self-proclaimed Harry Houdini or James Randi of the Golden Dawn Community, doing much effort and going into great pains in debunking other Orders lineages, in particular the one transmitted by Desmond Bourke. Like Houdini and Randi nurtures a hatred towards psychics and occultists, Mr. Zalewski abhores lineages and hates Secret Chiefs, that is any lineages or authorities which are not his own and outside the pale of the Order of the Table Round.
A final observationI guess, becoming or being a “Golden Dawn leader” makes you an open target from all camps, including the spiritual family that you have once abandoned. I suppose it comes with the territory. But my suggestion to all of you Golden Dawn leaders who feel threatened by my recent actions, or have an ax to grind with me because of past dealings, is very simple: Just stay away from my path and leave me alone. I have no interest in you or your work; we have so little in common that there is no need to feel competition from my side, as we are not even reaching out to the same people with our respecive operations. My ideal candidate is not that of yours. So, let us simply ignore each other and continue with our respective visions of the Great Work. I believe that I have said enough concerning my views regarding that of the general Golden Dawn Community; I have no need to repeat myself. I especially have no ambition to name call anyone or assassinate anyone’s character. However, if you make a direct stab at me, do not expect that I won’t try to parry your attempt at attacking me. Let’s spare our readers that tragedy; we have had enough of that already and nobody really needs it....seriously.
A last minute confession
My final hatching and initiation into this severe existence was the profanation of the A∴O∴ material and the character assassination of its founder; I now was under the spell of my former chief, who took advantage of and fueled my anger. I clearly was leaning to much towards the Black Pillar of Severity during that phase of my life; it may have had something to do with my Adeptus Major process as well. The final one and a half years has been a constant struggle to break that mesmerising spell and reach for the White Pillar of Mercy. That process is still continuing to this very day. Six years ago I still was a spiritual virgin, lacking any experience of the greater Golden Dawn Community; I am not a Virgo any more as I have learned my lessons the hard way. My blog represents a documentation of this process, which corresponds to the three Grades of the Second Order.
Now, I am not blaming anyone of these leaders; the greatest responsibility is and has always been my own; I always had a choice and no one forced me into anything. On the contrary, having a natural tendency towards severity, I have been quite proficient in developing my own rhetoric and chritical analysis of the Golden Dawn Community, something that I still benefit from today. As an outcome of all of this, I have consciously adapted a Traditionalist outlook on the Mysteries. So it has been a learning experience which I don’t regret. But some paranoid voices can be very convincing, indeed. And we must remember that today we are living in the Kali Yuga age of the Golden Dawn, in which the counter-traditional and counter-initiatic powers are paramount. This is the main reason why I have choosen to retreat back to my native Hyperborea and focus on what’s truly important, to protect and preserver the Tradition and to pass it on to worthy seekers of the Nascent Aurora.
