An Upside Down Rose Cross




For most occultists, they want to be a part of a secret society and to be trained and programed into an occult master.  For me, this was the intent of my Rosicrucian adventure.  Today, I am torn by this affiliation due to the lack of respect for free thought by many Rosicrucians while others demand the freedom to challenge, rearrange, and de-program the old methods of the past.  Traditional occult versus the futurist occult, I guess you can tell by the title which one I am.  This isn’t a formal movement and you won’t see a futurist occult term in any book, it’s a term I use to challenge the ideas of others in the secret circles of traditional orders.  I say, flip the cross upside down and take the lessons away from the privileged and give it to the blank generation to open the temples of their own mind, not an outdated lodge from the turn of the century.  My greatest wish is to take the lessons presented in the privileged lodges and give them to a new generation to use in a digital dystopian world.  The goal of this magick isn’t to raise energy in a secret room but as a tool for the individual visionary to find themselves and break the molds of a useless past.  These students won’t be found in temples and lodges but in  black plastic rooms full of televisions striking out at a dehumanizing world of digital dreams and low level expectations.  These are the lessons of Jesus as a cyberpunk nailing the romans to a cross taking back the book thats been changed for the worst and bringing it back to its original form, the freedom of the individual.  I say, flip the cross around and lets look at the other side of the lodge, the path of individual thought, not the path of service.



  1. I think in some ways I feel similarly split, not wanting the conformity of either standard esotericism or mainstream Paganism. Sometimes it is actually really difficult to call myself a Pagan, because I seem to have so little in common with most Pagans; other times I can find common inspirations. What I do want above all else in the honoring of individual paths and individual creativity, and I do find myself resorting to an almost artistic paradigm. I do not want the snobbery and exclusiveness of some esotericism, the faux academia of the college boys, or the careful tended political correctness of so much neopaganism. I know my approach would seem amateurish to some, but I value the freshness of the amateur, the sincerity of “beginners mind”, and the consciousness that can put paint to paper or canvas with real desire and need, rather than the consciousness that looks for credibility

  2. I can relate! It can be extremely hard at times to fulfill both individual paths and feel like you are repeating tradition at the same time. Thanks again for writing a comment!
