Alpha et Omega Ascending: On the Wings of Ma'at!

by David Griffin
HOGD, AO, 33

Regular readers will recall how,  in 2002, I was contacted for the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega by Frater Lux E Tenebris, a representative of the millennia old, Continental European Hermetic and Rosicrucian Internal College that S.L. MacGregor Mathers called the "Secret Chiefs of the Third Order." 

History will prove what a great boon this event in reality has been for the Golden Dawn community. Already in 2002, the Secret Chiefs transmitted the A.O. the initiation rituals and initially teachings intended since 1888 for the Third Order of the Golden Dawn.

The Secret Chiefs this year opened the flood gates wide, transmitting vast amounts of additional Hermetic and Rosicrucian magical teachings and systems to the Alpha Omega, to replace the material profaned through publication by misguided Golden Dawn Adepts.

The Third Order chose the Alpha et Omega as a a gesture of recognition of the magical genius and greatness of the founder of our order, S.L. Macgregor Mathers. Although the Secret Chiefs have not always been pleased with Mathers, it was he who, after all, was the primary contact with Them for the Golden Dawn since the beginning.

Alpha Omega Founder, S.L. MacGregor Mathers
Having been chosen by the Secret Chiefs to serve as Mathers' successor as the primary contact with Them for the Golden Dawn is a great honor, but it has also been a terrible burden. Such a heavy cross must be borne, however, by all so chosen for such a role.

As Archon Basileus of the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega, I have been attacked nearly non-stop for the entire decade since the Secret Chiefs sent Frater Lux E Tenebris to meet with me in Paris. The A.O. as well has been sued, misrepresented, and defamed constantly on the Internet. Our sacred initiation rituals and early documents have been published. I have been personally called a lier and a fraud. My predecessor, S.L. MacGregor Mathers, has been called a madman. Not even Secret Chiefs have escaped the disparagement of misguided individuals. They themselves have been branded as mere figments of Mathers' imagination.

Clearly there are Counter-Initiatic Forces at play, attempting to hinder the Alpha et Omega from playing its destined role to aid mankind in its spiritual development in the new Millennium.

Sadly, leaders of several Golden Dawn orders have rejected the new infusion of Spirit bestowed on the Golden Dawn community by the Secret Chiefs. Instead, they have chosen to oppose the Secret Chiefs and ally themselves instead with the unbalanced magical forces seeking to hinder the Alpha et Omega and its its mission.

For years, they have attacked me online, accusing me of lying about the Secret Chiefs and many other things. They have ignored all proof we have offered, and continued relentless attacks against the A.O. They have spat on our offer to share advanced Golden Dawn magic and teachings with Adepts from across the Golden Dawn community. They have even threatened their Adepts with expulsion should they attend our International Conclave of Golden Dawn Adepti March 9-19, 2012 or even should they take part in the advanced magical teachings and practices.

Having consulted at length with the Third Order about the constant distraction and drain on my energy created by these incessant attacks, I have decided to take definitive magical action to restore balance once and for all.

An Invocation of Ma'at

"I invoke you, oh Ma'at! And call out to you to restore Truth, Order, and Righteousness to the Golden Dawn."

"I invoke you, Oh Lady of the Balance in the Hall of Twin Truths."

"I offer my heart up on your scale, oh Ma'at, that should I be found lacking, you may render judgement upon me, so that balance may be restored."

"Yet should my heart be true, and as light as a feather, may you subdue and vanquish the unbalanced forces seeking to prevent the Alpha et Omega from exalting the consciousness of those who seek true enlightenment."

"I invoke you, oh Lady of Righteousness, that Truth, Balance and Order may be restored."

"I invoke you, Oh Lady of the Scales! Oh Goddess hidden at the center of our Temple in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn."

"I invoke you, oh Ma'at, and I bring the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega under the protection of your Divine wings."

"May Ma'at be restored, our order protected from those who unjustly attack it, and may Ma'at vanquish the Unbalanced Forces."


  1. Let us hope this restores peace in the Golden Dawn community. Golden Dawn Leaders attacking other orders turns off the whole esoteric community to the Golden Dawn

  2. I wouldn't count on it. The shit slingers seem completely obsessed with you. They seem to spend all their time trying to tear the HOGD down instead of helping anyone in their own orders to grow spiritually.

  3. I would not bank on that. Those guys on that GD forum seem completely obsessed with trying to tear down the HOGD. Do they even care about spiritual growth or about helping their own initiates? All I ever see them do is toss shit at others.

  4. I know for sure that this forces will help to restore the order in the Golden Dawn community, on my part i will pray for this too and that this action(s) will put truth , order and righteousness to our great family and that other leaders stop the nonsense of attacking each other and that true enlightenment always prevail.Fr. L.Y.S.

  5. Beautiful invocation! I also hope that this will make a difference and "vanquish the Unbalanced Forces". Sadly, it seems that being chosen by the Secret Chiefs is both a gift and a burden...and this is probably one of their reasons they chose to remain hidden for so long.

  6. Care V. H. Frater L.e.S.

    I hope that peace prevails in the community of G.D., cease all attacks, so you can stop dissipate your energy defending the Alpha et Omega, and we can all dedicate ourselves to work for the True LVX.

    I also perform my rituals to achieve this goal.

    LVX in Extension.

    Frater L.A.M.

  7. Care M. H. Frater L.e.S.

    Espero que la paz reine en la comunidad de la GD. Que cesen todos los ataques, que usted pueda dejar de disipar su energía defendiendo la Alpha et Omega, y que todos podamos dedicarnos a trabajar por la Verdadera LVX.

    Yo también realizaré mis rituales para conseguir este objetivo.

    LVX en Extensión.

    Frater L.A.M.

  8. You got my support, and I'm not even a member of your order (yet). I just followed the blogs and groups and got the picture.

    This invocation is breathtaking by the way. I couldn't help but write it down.



  9. I propose that all Fra & Sors of our Golden Dawn community join practicing the proposed Ma'at ritual until peace and understanding is settled among us.

    Let!s the Magic heal our wings!

    Fra. T.A.S.

  10. I propose to all our Frateres and Sorores to join practicing the Ma'at ritual as described here until peace and understanding is restored among us!

    Let the healing wings of the LVX do magic!

    Fra. T.A.S.

  11. Ave GH Frater LeS:

    I commend your spirit to rid the negativity that ensues from sullied clouds upon the sanctuary and their vagaries.

    As in any egregore, I strongly suggest the community of Adepti and order members join together in the invocation of Maat so that such noble intentions go not go in vain but assist in the immediacy with the restoration of the order's honor.

    Master R

  12. "I almost got tears reading this !"

  13. Beautiful invokation of Ma'at! I will say this though. I feel David you should also not allow them to have so much of your attention too. This is a time for celebration. Those of the hidden 3rd order have renewed their faith in us, and us in them! This is time for both the lower and the higher to sing praises.

    This isn't to say you shouldn't address them nor their accussations; but lets spend more time in rejoice and less time in rebuking. :)

    I know you, and many others, already are; I don't want it to seem like I think you aren't. But lets let the sycophants harp to their hearts content because we all know that the day will come when even they will follow in order. I feel this will also help restore balance and maybe even help those naysayers be slowly pulled into our celebrations because in the end, it isn't about us being against them. It should always be about us and them rejoicing together. One day this will happen. :)

  14. David, you said, "Having been chosen by the Secret Chiefs to serve as Mathers' successor as the primary contact with Them for the Golden Dawn is a great honor, but it has also been a terrible burden."

    Does this mean the Secret Chiefs who contacted you are the same Secret Chiefs that Mathers met in Paris? Are they literally the same people, or are they different people? Are they from the same exact Order, or are they from a different branch of the Order that first contacted Mathers?
