Rosicrucian Order of AO
In one of his comments to one of his own posts, Nick farrell writes:
"Contacts" can never be human indeed it is pretty difficult to tell what they. You make humans into gods and put them above you is something which is asking for trouble. (...more flaming rant snipped ...)"
So, Mr. Farrell admits he is not sure what exactly makes a contact to a Higher Source of Wisdom.
But he nevertheless feels compelled to slander OUR Third Order… what a disturbed mind and soul would ever utter as much???
"I seek for the Light of Occult Wisdom, and I believe that this Light can be obtained in this Order"
We are all familiar with these words from the Neophyte Ceremony.
For me, a practitioner and Adept of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn for ten years, there has never been a shadow of a doubt that this Order, the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega, has not only the lineage that makes a true Order. But also that the contacts were genuine.
Nick Farrell does not realize that this very contact to the European Secret Society we have come to call our "Third Order" is what exceeds all other charters or lineages.
Having a genuine contact to that European Society in our Order is the very fact that makes me trust forever in, and rely on, the teachings of our Order. And I know that we are blessed by this contact, by the strong forces behind this extremely Secret Society, and that we will never have to worry if the likes of Farrell (or whatever group) publish our material.
It is written that "by its fruits shall you know a tree." The fruit of the Third Order is new magick that completes the Golden Dawn system that remained truncated with the Regardie publication.
The fruit of ll those who have kept taking turns slandering our order non-stop for 20 years and continue to do so today on their blogs and books is nothing but hatred, envy, and poisonous venom attacking our order and its leaders. They refuse to understand that even when they only attack or order or even one of our leaders, they are in reality attacking every one of their brothers and sisters in our order.
Who in thier right mind would want any of these people to guide one's spiritual development.
What kind of spiritual leaders have nothing better to do but attack other orders out of sheer envy and hatred?
We invited the entire Golden Dawn community to our recent Conclave of the Adepti. It is highly significant that those attacking all of the members of our order today on their blogs and in thier books made a conscious choice not to put away hatred and to sit down in brotherhood with us. There are sadly people in our Golden Dawn community who are addicted to hatred and conflict. You can see the hatred dripping from their blogs and in their books.
But they should have learned better by now. For 20 years they have attacked us out of envy and poured out their hatred on every one our members with their sick slander.
And what have they accomplished with so much hatred?
They have only made the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn the largest Golden Dawn order in the world and made the Alpha Omega stronger and richer in mysteries and in magick!
With so much slander, so much hatred, they have only made our members and our order stronger. As it is written in the Adeptus Minor initiation:
"Like Him have ye suffered tribulation. Poverty, torture and death have ye passed through. They have been but the purification of the Gold. In the alembic of thine heart, through the athanor of affliction, seek thou the true stone of the Wise."
Those in the GD community who prefer hatred to brotherly love and continue to attack our order out of envy, be you warned:
We, the Initiates of the HOGD and Adepts of the AO, will stand together as one, we will defend the Rose of our Mysteries and the reputation of our order against your hatred and vile slander, and we will always be not one but two steps ahead of you.
Let us therefore not lose sight of what it is our Order stands for. And let us continue our Work in the very sense of Fraternal Love that we have experienced only a few days ago in Nevada.
My Fraternal Greetings, my Love and all my best wishes are extended to you all.
May brotherhood triumph over strife!
May love triumph over hatred and envy!
May the Deity of the Equinox password prevail!
May Isis bless the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Rosicrucian Order of AO, protect our order and all of its brothers and sisters under the shadow of her mighty wings!
To those attacking our order even today on their blogs and in their books:
"I invite you yet once again to let go of hatred and to embrace love instead;
... to see a brother and a sister in those you today only imagine are your enemies."
May true fraternity replace strife in the Golden Dawn community!
