Moina Mathers' Alchemical Painting: GD Traditionalists & Reconstructionists

by David Griffin

There has been a great deal of conflict in the Golden Dawn community because the Reconstructionist faction will not allow Traditionalist Golden Dawn orders to function in peace. The way that McDonalds corporation put thousands of independent hamburger restaurants out of business by imposing corporate domination of the industry, Golden Dawn Reconstructionists have attempted likewise to destroy traditional Golden Dawn orders, like the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (HOGD) and our parent order, the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha Omega (AO). This has led to the term "McGoldenDawn" to describe the extreme aggression of the reconstructionist faction in the Golden Dawn community.

They have defamed us on the internet for nearly two decades. They have published our initiation rituals. They have even attempted to demonize our order by rewriting our history. It turns out that this entire Witch Hunt has been manipulated from behind the scenes by the SRIA, a shadowy, anti-Semetic, anti-Muslim, and anti-Pagan organization based in England, with tentacles stretching across the world, including throughout the aggressive Reconstructionist faction of the Golden Dawn community. 

The SRIA has stirred strife in the Golden Dawn community for at least two decades, not infrequently by providing documents to Golden Dawn Reconstructionists to profane through publication, in order to promote their groups. A primary culprit in this profanation of documents has been R.A. Gilbert, who has trafficked in Golden Dawn documents for decades.

The following, an alchemical illustration painted by Moina Mathers, will serve nicely to contrast the difference between the Reconstructionist and the Traditionalist approaches to the Golden Dawn. Comments published by GD Reconstructionists Pat Zalewski and Olen Rush about this illustration will make this distinction clear, contrasted with comments that I will make below.

Sunday April 22, 2012 Pat Zalewski wrote about this illustration:
"One of the most important GD diagrams that to the best of my knowledge has only been published in R A Gilbert's GD Scrapbook (which is online), is the diagram of the winged dragon eating the tail of the unwinged dragon. Olen Rush goes into this as well. This is a diagram influenced by Kirchweger's edition of Homer's Golden Chain. You can also see this in Alchemy and mysticism by Roob, page 404.
Flamel also discussed this principle in his Chymische Werke. The use of the hexagram within the the two dragons by Moina was possibly due to it being similar to, though not identical with the the symbol of the Theosophical society. The text underneath the symbol of Moina is a paraphrase of Kirchweger.
If you go to Roob's book and study the Kirchweger plate, then look at the one on the next page you have the winged and unwinged dragons locked together within a zodiac, which is taken from a Ripley Scroll and is the pictorial basis for the Convoluted Forces paper. From what I can gather the Convoluted Forces diagrams appears to be a mixture of Theosophical, Kirchweger and Ripley. The diagrams are one thing and the text is another, and Agrippa's influence comes in there as well.These are then fused together within a GD frame of reference."

On Sunday, May 30, 2010, Olen Rush wrote:
"Moina's translation/interpretation recovered to the best ability of my squinty old eyes.
This is the wording of the Golden Dawn version of the Figur Abyssi Duplicatae diagram as presented in the previous post. This is the work of Moina Mathers... quite interesting really. Obviously, it is a direct work from the Kirchweger text. Her extrapolation of the Elements to the smaller triangular forms (6 small triangles of the periphery) of the Hexagram differ from the partial diagram I worked with. It had the two furthest right (smaller) triangles of the Hexagram labled with "Terra" for the inferior triangle, and "Vegetabalia" for the Superior Triangle. Comparing to a number of GuRC diagrams... I utilized "Vegtabalia", "Animalia", and "Elementa" on the angles of one (larger) triangle... for the other (larger) triangle I used "Terra", "Siderea", and "Elementa".
In the transcription below, the elements listed in brackets such as: [fire] replace the elemental symbols of Moina's text.  
'Whenever the Dragon meets an enemy, they fight.
The Volatile must become fixed, vapour and [water]
must become [earth]. [Fire] must become corporeal,
so life can enter the [earth]. The superior must become 
inferior, and vice versa. The fixed becomes volatile.
The [earth] becomes [water], vapour, [air], and [fire],
whilst [fire] returns to the center of the [earth]. Heaven, 
i.e. [fire] must be converted into a first [earth]. The 
Dragon with wings kills the Dragon without wings,
or the latter destroys the former. Thus is manifested 
the Quintessence and its powers." 
Olen Rush
Let us not examine what we do and do not learn about this alchemical painting from Mr. Zalewksi and Mr. Rush. We learn that the drawing was published in "The Golden Dawn Scrapbook" by SRIA agent, R.A. Gilbert, that it appears influenced by Kirchweger's Golden Chain of Homer, that the diagram is called Figur Abyssi Duplicatae, and that Flamel discussed it in his Chemische Werke.

We also encounter, however, some highly speculative data that I believe is also quite erroneous, for example, that the whole is somehow related to Agrippa and that Moina Mathers included the hexagram due to its similarity with the symbol of the Theosophical Society. We also encounter the  completely unsupported speculation that the Convoluted Forces paper of the Golden Dawn is taken from a Ripley Scroll and appears to be a mixture of Kirchweger, Ripley and Theosophy.

This entire approach, including the rather fantastic and highly erroneous speculations, poignantly demonstrate what is wrong with the entire Reconstructionist approach to the Golden Dawn. Through the academic approach of the Golden Dawn Reconstructionists, we do learn some interesting background information, but we also encounter bottomless sacks of red herrings due to rampant and unwarranted speculation, often easily confused with real data.

Completely absent from the analysis of both Mr. Zalewksi and Mr. Rush is why Moina Mathers painted this particular alchemical illustration, and what relevance to or importance it has in the Golden Dawn TRADITION. The Golden Dawn is, after all, a SPIRITUAL TRADITION. One may safely assume therefore, that this illustration has a spiritual significance.

Here we enter the realm of TRADITIONAL Golden Dawn orders like the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha Omega. We Golden Dawn Traditionalists do not need to try to reinvent the wheel, nor do we need to attempt to figure out what things mean based on idle speculation. Since we are initiated into the Hermetic and Rosicrucian mysteries, we are taught the original, spiritual meaning and use of each and every aspect of the Golden Dawn tradition.

As a matter of fact, in the case of this alchemical painting by Moina Mathers, we are in the presence of a symbolical depiction of one of the most important SPIRITUAL PRACTICES of the THIRD ORDER of the Golden Dawn. As Traditionalists, we look at the symbols of the Golden Dawn not to provide historical data or to engage in personal speculation, but rather to better understand how to carry out specific spiritual practices.

I must at this point remind readers that all of the spiritual practices of everything in the traditional Golden Dawn above Adeptus Minor (5=6) remains secret, oath bound material. I am therefore not permitted to divulge the actual details of the spiritual practice of the Golden Dawn's Third Order that this particular alchemical image actually represents. 

I can, however, shed light on its real meaning using the "language of the birds", as Hermetic sages have always done, lifting the veil so that the light beyond may be witnessed, but without ripping the veil away from the door to the inner sanctuary. Thus, while withholding the specific nature and details of the Third Order spiritual practice in question, I may nonetheless shed light on the true meaning of certain of the relevant symbols. 

The two dragons, one winged and the other not, represent the two natures, Sulphur and Mercury, which united together create the Salt. Note also that the two dragons are circulating together, in a counter-clockwise, or widdershins direction. Thus they do not follow the path of the Sun, but follow instead the path of the Zodiac. (Thus Zalewski got this one association right.)

The planets represent the elements to be used in the practice and the timing for the work. The triangles are double because each nature is always double. The central circle represents the philosophical egg, also relevant for this particular practice. This circle also represents the Salt when the two natures are in conjunction.

The hexagram, contrary to Mr. Zalewski's irrelevant speculation, has nothing to do with the Theosophical Society, but it does indeed have an extremely important and profound meaning. The hexagram reveals the mystery of the septenary and refers to the true and proper practice to be performed. Note particularly how the upward pointing triangle is yellow where usually one finds red in most alchemical drawings. This is highly significant, as it represents a very important detail in practice, which must be always considered in this particular spiritual practice.

Finally, I add that this particular Golden Dawn practice of our Third Order may also be ritualised in the Vault of the Adepti as well.

Let he who has an ear, hear. Let he who has an eye, see. For the Sons of Hermes speak the truth and plainly for one with ears and eyes.

Thus we see clearly the true reason that Golden Dawn Reconstructionists are so aggressive towards traditional Golden Dawn orders like the AO. The Reconstructionists remain ignorant of the actual SPIRITUAL PRACTICES hidden in all of the symbology of the Golden Dawn. Consequently, they remain lost in a labyrinth of academic research and sterile speculation.

Since the racist SRIA is trying to set itself up as a faux Third Order, stirring strife, and interfering in the Golden Dawn community for two decades, selectively releasing archival documents to GD Raeconstructionists, one would expect that the SRIA would also be able to transmit the secret SPIRITUAL PRACTICES encoded in the rites and symbols of the Golden Dawn. If the anti-Semetic SRIA is the real Third Order, let them explain to us what the SPIRITUAL PRACTICE is encoded in this painting by Moina Mathers. If the true meaning of the "0=0" was too difficult a test for them, at least they should be able to pass this one.

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and its parent order, the Rosicrucian Order of AO is today the only Golden Dawn order under the direct guidance and protection of the Secret Chiefs of the Third Order of the Golden Dawn in Continental Europe. As such, we have access to the ENTIRE curriculum and SPIRITUAL PRACTICES of all grades of all Three Orders of the Golden Dawn system.

We have already begun to share this incredible knowledge with Adepts of orders from across the Golden Dawn community. We have no problem in sharing these teachings and spiritual practices with other Golden Dawn orders. We have no interest in manipulating or controlling anyone. We are not like the SRIA. We want to see the Golden Dawn thrive as a diverse community. We ask only that aggressive Reconstructionists agree to keep traditional secrecy and respect the sanctity of oath bound material as has always been the case in the Golden Dawn, and that you live and let live, and end your misguided Witch Hunt against traditional Golden Dawn orders like the AO.

The Wescott Tablets & SRIA/McGD Witch War

by David Griffin

For a Free and Independent Golden Dawn ...
Stop the Racist SRIA!

ATTENTION: The documents quoted in this article are 100% genuine. Despite cover-up efforts, this can still be verified in numerous places on the internet, including here, and here. I have recently published evidence linking Golden Dawn leaders to the anti-Semitic "Order of the Rose and Cross" here. Olen Rush, defending the culprits, claims documents in this article are fake - taken from an Illuminati site. Rush now accuses me of racism - merely for outing his involvement with Golden Dawn leaders listed as Grand Officers on the official website of the anti-Semitic "Order of the Rose and Cross," including Rush's own publishers!

In episode 6 of The Golden Dawn Saga, The Dark Hand REVEALED, I exposed how the dark hand of the racist SRIA has for decades been pulling the strings of their McGoldenDawn® marionettes to stir strife in the Golden Dawn community in their quest to completely control and dominate the Golden Dawn. Far from the stodgy little research groups that people believe the SRIA and its offshoots are, these are racists who discriminate against Jews, Pagans, and Muslims, and who have been trying to steal the Golden Dawn nearly from its inception. This all becomes obvious when you look at who in the GD community belongs to the various tentacle orders of SRIA, which reads like a Who's Who of McGoldenDawn reconstructionists. 

But why exactly does SRIA hate the Alpha Omega so much?

To begin with, as Imperator of the AO, I am Pagan, and the bigoted "Trinitarian Christians only" SRIA can tolerate neither Jews, Pagans nor Muslims in their midst. Moreover, unlike SRIA, we in the AO admit and advance initiates of both genders on an equal basis.

In the AO, we certainly do not discriminate against Christians either. In fact, esoteric Christian mysteries are an important aspect of the Golden Dawn. What the SRIA can not stand though, is that we do not discriminate against Jews, Pagans, or Muslims the way they do. This, the Anti-Semitic SRIA hates with a passion.

Racist SRIA Supreme Magus John Paternoster

Moreover, unlike the SRIA and their McGD® franchises, the Alpha Omega does not interfere in the private lives of our members and does not prohibit them from joining whatever other orders or what not they like. We believe that all women and all men are created equal, with an equal possibility of spiritual evolution. We believe, however, that this evolution must be conquered though great discipline in spiritual practice.

Our order therefore, as has always been the case in traditional Initiatic societies, is not democratic, but is structured as a hierarchical meritocracy, wherein each individual is advanced exclusively according to individual merit. Unlike the racist SRIA, the Alpha Omega does not discriminate against any individual on the basis of religion, race, gender, sexual or political preferences.

Finally, the SRIA hates most of all because the Alpha Omega foiled SRIA's secret grand design of many years, to sieze control the Golden Dawn using the Golden Dawn trademark, held and licensed by the Supreme Maga of SRIA in America. AO has equal right to license others due to our settlement agreement with the other party. This means that the AO is the only thing preventing SRIA from controlling the Golden Dawn with the GD trademark.

Even McGoldenDawn Chief Nick Farrell publicly admitted that SRIA is a racist organization. Following the SRIA-ORC schism in 2007, McFarrell wrote on alt.magick:

Racist SRIA/ORC Puppet, Nick Farrell
"ORCs policy on admission is considerably wider than the SRIA in that it is open to all races and sexes. The ORC was originally formed by a group of people who felt that SRIA was too conservative." 
- Nick Farrell
Nick Farrell, in fact, defended the Grand Officers of the ORC (Order of the Rose and Cross), a schismatic offshoot of SRIA) on thier website when it first opened, together with the present Supreme Maga of the SRIA (America) her Metropolitan College SRIA husband, and racist SRIA/ORC Frater, R.A. Gilbert as well.

There was a huge scandal on the internet when news broke that all three of these were GRAND OFFICERS of this new, racist and Anti-Semitic "Christians only" order, and all three of their names were immediately "sanitized" from the ORC website (note that the list of officers was merely truncated and the offices removed from the site instead of other persons placed in the above referenced offices). Also removed was racist R.A. Gilbert, who had originally sponsored the husband when he joined Metropolitan College of SRIA. 

Thus you can see that it is not at all certain that the Supreme Maga of SRIA (America) is telling the truth on her website, and that SRIA (America) does not secretly share the racist and bigoted views (and discriminatory practices) of SRIA (Anglia) and quietly discriminate racially and religiously once inside SRIA (America) as do the other SRIA orders her husband belongs to in Canada and England. She was, after all, listed as a GRAND OFFICER on the initial website of the racist ORC, together with her husband who additionally belonged to the racist SRIA (Anglia) and anti-semetic SRIC (Canada).

Moreover, there are indications that ORC is even more fanatically bigoted than SRIA, despite Nick Farrell's trying to whitewash them. Firstly, there is the ORC objection that the SRIA was not "Christian" enough for them. This at least indicates a certain extreme right wing Fundamentalism. More damning, however, is the conclusion of R.A. Gilbert's paper originally listed on the ORC website, entitled "Golden Dawn or Gotterdammerung"

Note that the ORC has attempted to sanitize this article from its website as well, but have been sloppy. Although the .pdf is no longer available on their server, the link to it still remains on the articles page, as follows:

Despite this attempt by the Order of the Rose and Cross to remove evidence of anti-Semitism from their website, Gilbert's full article can still be downloaded from the original version of the ORC website from the Internet Archive here. Using his OR+C order name, Frater I.D.V.A, Anti-Semite R.A. Gilbert wrote:

SRIA/ORC Anti-Semite, R.A. Gilbert
"How can we best preserve the Western Hermetic Tradition for the future? I truly believe that initiatic Orders analogous to the Golden Dawn are still needed and that their role is crucial in preserving our specifically western esoteric spirituality. We must also recognise that the Tradition which represents that spirituality FACES REAL THREATS, both from the growth of RELIGIOUS INDIFFERENCE and from the determined efforts of its SPIRITUAL ENEMIES to capitalise on such indifference, and to undermine the tradition by perverting its ethos and substituting darker and avowedly anti-Christian goals. If we are true to our Rosicrucian principles then we must recognise and strive against those THREATS."     
- R.A. Gilbert

Another Anti-Semetic Tract
talking about "threats" from "spiritual enemies"
with "anti-Christian goals."

It is obvious, that Gilbert is here espousing an Anti-Semetic "Christans only" view of Rosicrucianism. Gilbert makes direct reference to some mysterious "anti-Christian" (read Jewish? Pagan? Muslim?) THREAT. Such paranoid declarations are highly reminiscent of other Anti-Semetic tracts like the infamous "Protocols of the Elders of Zion."

It is understandable that Nick Farrell, the SRIA (America) Supreme Maga, and her husband are now desperately trying to distance themselves from the racism and bigotry of SRIA (Anglia) and its offshoots like SRIC in Canada, SRIS in Scotland, and SRICF in America, just like they tried in 2007 to cover up their involvement in in the racist ORC once they were outed as GRAND OFFICERS, since Anti-Semetism is completely incompatable with Golden Dawn Qabalah, and racism is the absolute antithesis of the humanitarian Hermeticism of the Golden Dawn. 

Moreover, due to his defense of the religiously bigoted, "Christian only" ORC, Nick Farrell's recent denial of Christian Fundamentalism sounds empty. Furthermore, in light of the above evidence, SRIA (America)'s claim on their website of racial and religious tolerance sounds like a mere cover story, just like having their Supreme Maga sanitized from the ORC website once she was discovered as a GRAND OFFICER of that bigoted and anti-semetic organisation.

SRIA (America)
The NSDAP German NAZI Party ...
... also used red, white and black colors ...
... together with a cross motif.

The whole hubub about Mathers vs. Wescott and who was the real genius behind the Golden Dawn, also arises from the SRIA Witch Hunt to destroy the Alpha Omega. Since Mathers founded the AO, SRIA and McGD spin doctors are trying to destroy the memory of Mathers with books like the latest political polemic masquerading as "history," written by racist SRIA/ORC apologist, Nick Farrell.

Alpha Omega Founder S.L. MacGregor Mathers

Of course SRIA wants to destroy the memory of Mathers and to promote Wescott as the real genius behind the GD. This is part and parcel of the SRIA/McGoldenDawn® Witch Hunt against the AO.

This goes far to explain the recent publication of the so-called "Wescott" Tablets by the Supreme Maga of the SRIA in America. It is noteworthy that T.F. as will be shown below, confirms that these Tablets were released for publication directly by the SRIA. Unsurprisingly, SRIA racist, R.A. Gilbert has trafficked in Golden Dawn documents like these for decades, and has on more than one occasion provided Golden Dawn documents for profanation by the Supreme Maga of SRIA (America) and her husband. This has all along been intended, of course, to promote the SRIA controlled, McGD reconstructionist faction against traditional Golden Dawn orders like the AO.

This is also the case with the recent profanation of part 4 of the Mathers' rescension of the AO's 6=5 ritual. T.F. of SRIA is personally responsible, in fact, for the profanation of this secret AO ritual, recently published by the Grand Maga of SRIA America. To inflict maximum damage on the Alpha Omega with this attack, T.F. leaked only the fourth point of the ritual, thus enabling Nick Farrell to falsely claim Mathers had eliminated all magic from the order and had taken the Alpha Omega in a purely Masonic direction.

I must admit that I find these tablets, putatively from Wescott, quite fascinating (having seen colour pictures of them I have done some "decoding work" myself), especially when applied to the Sphere of Sensation model. The colour scales fit the traditional Hodos Chamelionis formula. Nonetheless, I feel they fail to add anything of real substance or value to the Golden Dawn MAGICAL system. At the very least, no one has yet demonstrated to my satisfaction how, from a magical point of view, these tablets contribute so greatly to the magical tech of the Golden Dawn, as to justify all the exaggerated hype about them from SRIA and McGD spin doctors.

What is tragic to observe is how these so-called "Wescott" Tablets are being used as a weapon against S.L. MacGregor Mathers, trying to forge the idea that it was Westcott (a Supreme Magus of SRIA) who was the real "genius" behind the magical system of the RR et AC, and not MacGregor Mathers (a student of Lux e Tenebris, ambassador of the Secret Chiefs of the Third Order)

SRIA Supreme Magus W. Wynn Wescott

Wescott was definitely not this alleged genius. Even if Westcott actually was the original creator of these Tablets (which is not at all established, despite the loud wailing of SRIA and McGD spin doctors), he simply used two models that MacGregor Mathers had already presented (as revealed from his Third Order contact L.e.T.), the 'Book of the Concourse of the Forces' and 'Hodos Chamelionis'.

Regarding the dubious SRIA-McGD claim that Wescott created these tablets, SRIA researcher T.F. wrote on Oct 30 2011:
"From the historical perspective a small note of caution. There is actually no evidence at all that Westcott produced them. They are usually termed the' Westcott Tablets' simply because they were found amongst a number of interesting GD items at the SRIA, London (and were rescued from being thrown out by a certain astute person)... We cannot conclude that Mathers (or someone else) had no part in producing these. Moreover, it may be useful to ponder the date when Westcott left the GD and his declaration that he laid no propriety claim to the work of the Second Order, which he acknowledged to be that of Mathers..." 
- T.F.
Westcott's creative input (if he truly was the genius behind said Tablets) was but to fuse the two documents together in a workable and interesting format. The alleged genius of Wescott was, at best, but to extrapolate on portions of the material transmitted through MacGregor Mathers, albeit a good extrapolation. Westcott was a great scholar, we must give him credit for that. But this does not make him, by any stretch of the imagination, the true "genius" of the R.R. et A.C. as claimed by McGD franchises and thier SRIA masters. Westcott himself even claimed in a private letter that the Golden Dawn (i.e. the Outer Order) was "his" while the R.R. et A.C. (the Inner Order) was "MacGregor Mathers".

Touting Wescott while denigrating Mathers is merely a new line of attack designed to create the illusion of the SRIA as the crown (or source) of the Golden Dawn, something that the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha Omega vehemently opposes. This stong and open opposition of ours, this standing up in defence of our order, is frequently mischaracterized by McGD Inquisitors and their SRIA masters as agression from our side. It is not. It is, however, a firm determinaton to cure the Golden Dawn community of the plague of leprosy the McGoldenDawn franchise lobby has infected the GD community with for two decades on behalf of their SRIA puppet masters.

The inappropriate deification of Wescott in books like the recent one on the "Wescott" tablets, combined with the attempted character assassination of Mathers and the AO in the pseudo-historical political tract recently published by Nick Farrell, is just another attempt by SRIA to manipulate and stir strife in the Golden Dawn community. SRIA tried to steal the Golden Dawn's legitimate Rosicruican heritage since the beginning of the order in 1888, as I have previously proven here. SRIA has been using their McGD puppets to attack the AO and me personally on the Internet for nearly two decades now. 

So why is SRIA doing this?

The real reason the McGD puppets and their SRIA masters are so desperate is they have already published all the GD magick they have. They are therefore desperately trying to create the illusion they have more GD material than they really do, by publishing anything at all SRIA can find still laying around collecting dust. That they are reaching the bottom of the barrell is clear from all of the fluff that was published along with the "Wescott" Tablets.

The true motive for the Grand Maga of SRIA (America) to profane the so-called "Wescott" tablets, as well as part 4 of the AO's 6=5 ritual, becomes readily apparent in the conclusion of her book where she writes:
"By now it should be obvious that we have not found an end to the teachings of the traditional Golden Dawn system. I personally do not believe that such an end is anywhere within sight, even within my own lifetime. Wescott's tablets continue to provide us with proof that the Order's system, as originally intended, is more balanced, more advanced, more holistic in its composition than is apparent to those who want to reform it. Like an iceburg with 90% of its mass hidden beneath the water's surface..." 
- SRIA Supreme Maga in America
This, of course, is utter poppycock.

The claim that SRIA is still sitting on 90% of the Golden Dawn's complete magical system is utter malarkey. In reality, the reason why SRIA and their McGD puppets are trying desperately to sell a cheap illusion of "The Great and Mighty Maga of OZ" (just ignore that woman behind the curtain), is because they are magically bankrupt already at this point, with nothing left of any real magical importance to publish. They have painted themselves into a corner, leaving themselves with nothing spiritual remaining sacred and unprofaned. And they are feeling UTTERLY DESPERATE about this.

For Centuries SRIA has tried to steal the Golden Dawn. In recent decades, their puppets even wrote on Wikipedia the Golden Dawn was created by SRIA. In short, SRIA is desperately trying to sell the illusion that SRIA is the Third Order of the Golden Dawn. Well, it looks like the McGoldenDawn have found themselves a racist Third Order substitute, by selling their souls to the racist SRIA. But the SRIA certainly is not the true Third of the Golden Dawn.

The True Face of SRIA

The other reason McGD marionettes and their SRIA puppet masters are so desperate now, is because the original owners of the Golden Dawn have reappeared again - the TRUE Third Order.

And the true Third Order has now proven their legitimacy beyond any doubt, by transmitting the rest of the Second Order magick to the Alpha Omega that Mathers never received because they no longer trusted him following Crowley's profanation of the rest of the GD material. As proof of the truth of this, the AO recently invited representatives of the entire GD community to experience these superior Second Order teachings and magick of the R.R. et A.C. at our Conclave of the Adepti, held in Nevada, March 9-19, 2012. All who attended concur about the validity of the material and the authenticity of the Third Order, including the Adepts from other GD orders than our own.

How can the McGD puppets, or even their SRIA masters, possibly compete with the true Third Order of the Golden Dawn? They simply can not...

...Because they do not have any traditional Golden Dawn magic or teachings for anything above the (5=6) Adeptus Minor level that Crowley and Regardie published, and anyone can buy for $5 in a used books heap.

This is the real reason why the SRIA is trying desperately to sell the LIE that 90% of all Golden Dawn material still remains hidden in their archives.

 I repeat:


And since this lie blew up in their faces, together with their publishing part of our 6=5 ritual, and together with Nick Farrell's attack on the foundations of our order...

The McGD marionettes and the Dark Hand of their SRIA masters have in recent weeks relaunched an all out Witch Hunt of defamation against the AO again, in one last, desperate attempt to destroy our order.

To the Dark Hand of SRIA I say:
"You will ultimately fail in your quest to control the Golden Dawn. The Golden Dawn does not belong to you. It has never belonged to you. The Golden Dawn was created by the physical Third Order - who are QABALISTS of CONTINENTAL EUROPE...
...And not RACISTS of ENGLAND. 
The TRUE Third Order created the Golden Dawn as a reformulation of ancient Egyptian mysteries, clothed primarily in Qabalistic, Christian, and Rosicrucian symbols.  
Qabala has no place in your SRIA Anti-Semetic rules or your racist Rosicrucian views." 
- David Griffin

Let us recall the Golden Dawn is an order with deep Qabalistic roots. Already in the first knowledge lecture, Golden Dawn initiates are presented with the Hebrew alphabet. The entire grade structure is based on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. In fact, Qabalah informs nearly aspect of the structure, rites and magick of the Golden Dawn.

How could the Anti-Semitic SRIA possibly even pretend to be the Golden Dawn's Third Order, when these bigots and racists discriminate against all but Trinitarian Christians.

The notion is absurd.

The Golden Dawn Saga: Episode 4: "Mirackle"

by David Griffin

Serving as Imperator of the world's largest Golden Dawn order is not at all an easy job. Not only does defense of the order's reputation fall on your shoulders, but it also paints a target on your back.

In the old West, being fast on the draw was both a blessing and a curse. The problem was, there was always some young punk out to make a name for himself by showing he was even faster.

A fast and famous Wand of Power in the hands of a Golden Dawn Imperator creates very much the same problem. During my twenty years as Imperator, in the HOGD and AO we have had our share of magical attacks.

But before McGoldenDawn® franchise owners and their anonymous trolls start screaming "paranoia" and calling me names again, let me tell you what I mean. The truth about magical attacks on our order has been documented over and over again over the years, mostly whenever people got fed up and left Robert Zink's EOGD. Bob Zink is documented having using his entire order to attack us magically for years.

People have apologised decades later to me for doing Zink's dirty work. One man confessed  with tears in his eyes how he had spied on me at Zink's behest, following me from the Los Angeles hotel where I stayed on tour.

Then there is the story of the infamous Watermelon caper, where Zink and his members baptised a watermelon with my name, then hacked it to bits with swords.

To be frank, I remained mostly undisturbed by all this nonsense, as my attackers have been mostly a bunch of magical lightweights. These guys weren't able to get anywhere near me with their black magic due to our order's sophisticated and exhaustive magical defences.

For security reasons, I can't go into specifics, but part of our magical defences are like an electrified fence. Our defences are so automatic and formidable that only a fool with a death wish would be dumb enough to attack our order. In fact, we can usually tell who tell who attacked us just by observing whose life implodes around them.

The last person who decided to self destruct on our order's defenses was Robert Zink. We all know what happenned to Sideshow Bob.

The whole picture changed though, during the recent International Conclave of Golden Dawn Adepti at Isis-Hathor Mother Temple here in the Nevada desert. One morning, GH Frater DeDI and I decided to take a ride together to the store with the top down in "Mirakcle," my trusty Jaguar XKR. It was a beautiful morning. The desert sun was already warming the fertile sands exploding with wildflowers in the last week of Winter.

DeDI and I only get to see each other once in a blue moon, since I live in Nevada and DeDI lives on the other coast. Yet here we were, two of the  three chiefs of the Alpha Omega, cruising along in Mirackle, top down, Mick Jagger crooning on the radio, our hair blowing in the warm desert breeze.

We had just pulled out onto the interstate. Mirackle's engine was purring like a kitten at 70 mph. Suddenly, I saw something floating through the air towards us, like a leaf on the warm desert breeze.

Instantly, beauty turned to menace, and fascination to seel resolve. This was no leaf! This was a truck wheel on a deadly trajectory for our windshield - impact due in a matter of seconds. 

It looked like this - only higher in the air!

There was no time to outrun it on the highway, even for Mirackle. I put metal to the floor, engaged XKR Turbo - and reigned Mirackle full throttle onto the brush filled desert plain.

Mirakle clawed deeply into the sand, billowing dust behind us, as the plummetting missle hammered into the road where we had been but a split second before.

I reigned Mirackle in and - with lion like grace, she came around to an elegant stop on the sage drenched sands.

We had safely dodged the missile!

A Fate Narrowly Escaped!

A lesser car would have surely have been the death of us all, but Mirackle had saved the day. GH Frater DeDI and I came out without a scratch. Mirackle would need a good washing, but she pulled through unscathed as well.

Was this all sheer coincidence?

To suggest otherwise, would surely unleash another army of McGoldenDawn® franchise owners and thier anonymous trolls - accusing me of everything from paranoia to hunting for conspiracies under matresses.

But still - what are the odds of a near fatal accident with two Golden Dawn Chiefs - who almost never see each other - sitting together in one car?

What if this were not mere coincidence, after all?

Well - if it was a magical attack, I can tell you it didn't come from any of the limp-wand-wannabe-mes who keep calling me names on the Internet.

It would take a black magician of a whole different caliber to get this close without imploding on our order's magical defenses. In 20 years as Golden Dawn Imperator, I have never come so close to death.

Anyone good enough to toss a truck wheel at me on the Interstate has a dark hand worthy of respct!

So what was it? Coincidence?

Or has a new magical player taken the field?

Well, assuming you are still out there, somewhere in the shadows...  Whatever you are... Whoever you are... 

Or however it is you call yourself - Moriarty? Voldemort? Black Brother? Sith?

Whatever - Just be advised...

This time you caught the Adepts of the Rosy Cross by surprise - and nearly took out two of our GH Chiefs.

But our magical defenses, quick reactions, and Mirakle's Jaguar pounce together saved our lives.

Next time you will no longer have the element of surprise.

We will be waiting for you - like Jedi Masters and Knights of the Old Republic - we Adepts of the Rosy Cross and Secret Chiefs of the Golden Dawn...

Vigilant - standing tall - shoulder to shoulder - together we shall hold the line...

In that place where Darkness may not pass - and Shadows flee away!
