Let us pretend that you and I are evil geniuses. Muah ha ha. Now I have been hearing a lot of people on social media (shows you what calibre of people I tend to interact with) who believe that because Donald Trump is going to become the new President of the USA, that the world is doomed. This shows incredible weakness on their part – they have quite happily decided to deny their own power, and accepted the roles of Victims.
Whilst such people probably are going to be doomed in the new world order, we evil geniuses stand to do well from benefiting from Putin’s *cough* I mean Trump’s new regime. Being proper evil geniuses and wicked awesome black magicians to boot, we will do even better than Trump expects, because unbeknownst to him we will be cynically exploiting Trump and his cronies for our own ends. Muah ha ha.
Now let us suppose a different scenario. Instead of evil geniuses, we are geniuses, and instead of wicked awesome black magicians, we are wicked awesome magicians. And instead of cynically exploiting Trump and his cronies for our own ends, we cynically exploit Trump and his cronies for the purpose of achieving justice and making the world a better place.
You see, every Golden Dawn adept knows the one does not banish the Evil Persona, or live in fear of it, but instead one makes it subject to the control and guidance of the higher self, so that its power is sublimated to a good end.
Every Abramelin magician knows that the Kings of Hell and their respective demon servants are not cast out into outer darkness, but are made to swear obedience and loyalty to the magician and his Holy Guardian Angel: thus, they work for him, not against him.
Every Solomonic magician ought to realise that in order to conjure a spirit of the Goetia of the Lesser Key of Solomon, one must not just ensure that the spirit acknowledges the Divine aid by which one calls it forth, but one must presuppose that the spirit is indeed Powerful.
Donald Trump therefore may be compared to Satan, or a particularly evil demon. Let the sheople, the powerless, and the self-emasculated live in fear of such a boo-hoo terrible phantom! However the real occultists – those that hope to be worthy of the title of Adept – ought to see the new regime as a challenge to be mastered, not a bogeyman from which to hide in terror.
Or to put it another way: Donald Trump has great power to do good in this world, in spite of himself. One can already see the practical effects of this every time Trump makes a crass remark which people find offensive. Whenever he does so, it stirs to action men and women of conscience. The Sheople who live in fear of Trump only pay attention to his utterances. But the Adepts notice that there is a groundswell of people who are realising that it is now more important than ever to do good in this world, and are thus forming a backlash. Hence: Donald Trump will cause the world to become more spiritual – because of people reacting against him!
