Grailkeepers and Time Bandits

I recently gave a talk about how, should we cast our eyes back into the deepest known history, it looks as though the intellectual and spiritual evolution of humanity has been ever under the two-edged sword of the blessings of the Grailkeepers and the curse of the Time Bandits. The Grailkeepers preserve the secret, esoteric,…

Christmas in Avalon – time for some real starfire magic!

If you’re feeling a bit jaded about Christmas, you don’t have to dig too far underneath all the artificial bling and glitz to discover that it’s actually a very potent time of year for real starfire magic, as the flaming arrow of the Sagittarius Archer flies towards the Taurus bull of fertility, and the Horned One of Capricorn emerges with the newly-born Radiant Child on his back.

This sort of Christmas reading could completely change your life!

This festive holiday season might be a good time to get started on the Mysteries. By ‘Mysteries’, I don’t mean a detective story that just spins you round and round in your thinking for no good reason. I mean the Mysteries with a capital “M”. Until recent decades, these Mystery Teachings were jealously guarded and…

Shine on, you crazy diamond – unravelling the metaphors of Time

I’ve been realising recently that the design of the chequerboard floor of the Freemasonic lodge does not consist of black and white squares but black and white diamonds. You just have to skew it slightly to see this. It was confirmed to me yesterday when a dowser friend sent me a photo of the design…

Why knowing how to spell Pinocchio is vital to understanding the Mystery teachings

Our prime minister’s father, Stanley Johnson, caused some media outrage the other day when he said in a television interview that most of the British public wouldn’t know how to spell Pinocchio. I don’t think, however, it was a form of arrogant, out-of-touch elitism, as was claimed, because I also didn’t know how to spell…

The Magical and Divine Sacrament of Marriage

The title of this article may seem anachronistic in an age in which we can just pop down to the registry office to tie the knot, or go to the other extreme and use it as an excuse to put on a lavishly extragavant event on some far flung sun-kissed beach that most of our…

The Mystery Teachings – first steps for beginners

If I was asked to describe exactly what the Mystery Teachings were about in just eight words, I would say: “The Marriage of the Sun and the Moon”. You might wonder why that is such a crucial topic to be understood on the road to wisdom and enlightenment. Well, it’s because the Marriage of the…

Stories in the Summerlands: A pilgrimage into esoteric Avalon

It is said that when Britain is in the direst peril and needs him the most, King Arthur will arise from his grave and return. We know this because we used to hear rhymes about it while still in the cradle – bardic poems that hail from of an age that Time forgot, when our…

The Occult Cause of the Madonna/Whore Complex

The Roman Catholic Church has spent a lot of time arguing over whether Mary Magdalene really was a prostitute. I can tell them that she was, but that her mythic character was developed from the honoured tradition of the sacred whore whose role is vital in producing the avatar of the age. Unfortunately, though, because…

The Grail Mysteries: the real, symbolic meaning of the Holy Grail

I was keen to use this picture of a real, beautifully-gilded chalice for the cover of The Grail Mysteries because just this one image captures the totality of the symbolic meaning of the Holy Grail.

Debasing the currency of love on Facebook

The heart shape is shorthand in esoteric circles for the Vesica Piscis which represents fertility through the Sacred Marriage, otherwise known as “sex magic” in which the energetic serpents are fired to rise up from the perineum to reach the chalice or Holy Grail of the hypothalamus. There, they secrete the Red and White serpentine…
