So truly what is Darkness....? It is not an object, it is not an entity, it is nothing more than the absence of something called Light. Just as there is no such thing as cold. Cold is simply the absence of heat. Heat and Light exist because of the Sun.
When the Sun is absent
in the sky at night we call it darkness. The same goes for people who
claim to be Dark and worship dark entities or Gods. They simply do not
developed their Body of Light. They are void of the majority of Light
even though they have the Divine spark within them and the majority
of the Deities they worship are truly not Dark. I see it every day...
people that write me thinking they are these powerful dark beings and
they worship Lucifer. It see in the pages of peoples web sites and so
on with all the demonic pictures that they glorify and so forth. Well
guess what, the joke is on them! Sorry to piss in your Tea Cup but Lucifer
is not a dark being. Recently I was talking with Archangel Michael.
I already basically knew the answer to the question I was going to ask
because I have my own personal Sumerian Deity that is on my left side
always who directs me. Anyway, I asked Michael about Lucifer and if
history and the churches just gave him a bad name. Archangel Michael
laughed and told me that Lucifer was not Evil but at
one time he was misdirected and he did have a brief tumble with Lucifer
(whom I call Enki) but all was good between them now. He said that there
were many lies in the Bible. This is due to the churches trying to keep
us in a "Control System" based on fear just as our President and Congress
are trying to do to us now. Yes... controlling the masses. Telling us
what we can and can't do. So therefore you have the Bible telling us
believe this and that and you go to Eternal Heaven. If you don't, you go to Eternal Hell
and Damnation. Keeping us in Spiritual ignorance so that we will
never escape this Matrix of life and reincarnations life so that we
are basically prisoners. So no we don't even go to Heaven even if we
believe their control system of lies.
So what is a Dark Being....? A truly dark being is anyone human or in spirit form that does not have the Light Energy in their body. Yes... especially those whom are excessively or hypocritically pious. Even those who go to church every Sunday and are devout Christians are not truly filled with Light. So even if they are not Evil... they are not filled with Light. This is because they have not worked with their Chakras and developed the Body of Light or shall I say their Aura. So they all have darkness in them.
So now lets get back to those of us whom practice Magick and want to have power over the Elements. Many people write me and ask me how they can have control over these things. Well Mastery of the Body of Light is the way. The Body of Light is also very important for doing Astral Travel and having access to the Higher planes. Even Crowley wrote and taught about the Body of Light. You can find it in the book entitled "Book 4" that he wrote. These are some quotes from that book...
The technique of Magick is just as important as that of mysticism, but here we have a very much more difficult problem, because the original unit of Magick, the Body of Light, is already something unfamiliar to the ordinary person. Nevertheless, this body must be developed and trained with exactly the same rigid discipline as the brain in the case of mysticism. The essence of the technique of Magick is the development of the Body of Light, which must be extended to include all members of the organism, and indeed of the cosmos. The object is to possess a Body which is capable of doing easily any particular task that may lie before it. There must be no selection of special experience which appeals to one's immediate desire. One must go steadily through all possible pylons. In Magick, on the contrary, one passes through the veil of the exterior world (which, as in Yoga, but in another sense, becomes "unreal" by comparison as one passes beyond) one creates a subtle body (instrument is a better term) called the body of Light; this one develops and controls; it gains new powers as one progresses, usually by means of what is called "initiation:" finally, one carries on almost one's whole life in this Body of Light, and achieves in its own way the mastery of the Universe.
Here he tells us how this is achieved...
