Correcting myself on the Promethean Office

Some time ago I threw together some kind of working meant to be performed daily consisting of all the words of power of the spheres and the Dark Gods that I could find and just throwing it all together and giving it the name “the Promethean Office”, thinking it was somehow at all the same as the traditional Promethean Office (not knowing it was intended for the Master/Lady Master, but I’ll get into that later). In my mind, it was supposed to imbue the operator with some kind of power, or something, but looking at it now to me it just looks like a static ritual made of a hodgepodge of words of power,  now having learned a little more about this particular aural tradition. For Satan’s sake, I don’t even explain any detail on how to use the energies raised. It’s almost embarrassing to look at that shit I wrote now.

To be absolutely clear, then, the Promethean Office is an aural tradition of the O9A that most of us aren’t ever gonna even need to learn how to do–unless, of course, we have the requisite inner Baeldraca (the acausal body/double, the Beast Within, whatever) to first nourish, then unleash, and finally unite with upon our passing of the Sinister Abyssal Nexion. It is taught on a one-on-one basis, and the real one taught to those who have successfully crossed the Abyss is a secret tradition to which I am not privy. So no matter whatever I put out there, know that it was not the O9A “Promethean Office”. Actually, to be able to even perform it implies (1) certain skills that are above and beyond the capacity of most, and (2) a successful passing of the Sinister Abyssal Nexion. The latter is even mentioned in the section of “Naos” dealing with Sinister Chant, comparing the energies thus presenced to what has been called by others “Tao” or “Physis”–how I missed that one, I have no clue. Having fulfilled these requirements, one then performs the actual Promethean Office every day to maintain the apprehension of the living unity beyond the Abyss.

What the actual ritual procedure, if any, is observed, I couldn’t tell you–though I’m certain a quartz tetrahedron is involved. There are instructions for the Promethean Office given in the BBS, but I hardly imagine that coming close to what the real deal is. But what I gave here wasn’t anything worth actually applying daily. You’re better off not even listening to me and coming up with your own daily practices based off the ToW as long as you’re in the initiatory stage.
