As the Imperator of the Order, it falls to me to reveal yet another truth from the Secret Chiefs of the Truest Order of the Golden Dawn (®Truest Order of the Golden Dawn, 2013). Two years ago, we revealed the Logo of the Truest Order of the Golden Dawn. Last year, we revealed the true identity of the Secret Chiefs of the Order. This year is no different. The Secret Chiefs have revealed yet another truth to us, and have commanded us to share this information with the rest of the Golden Dawn community, so that all may benefit.
The Godforms of the 0=0 grade have been set since the inception of the original order. However, as we will show, the Godforms currently in use by all Golden Dawn orders and temples are but simplifications, and let’s be honest, really caricatures, of the REAL and SECRET godforms, used by the Secret Chiefs, and now given to us to be revealed to the world. To many, the true and authentic godforms of the Order may seem…basic or simple…perhaps even childlike in nature by some. However, do not judge the book by its cover. There is a depth to these true godforms that is unlike anything that anyone on this planet and in this sphere of existence has ever worked with.
WARNING: Working with these Godforms channels an energy and power unlike anything experienced to date in the Golden Dawn. PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK…AND FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE, DON’T FORGET YOUR NEMYSS!!!
And now, without further ado, we reveal to the world for the 1st time (one…one time!), the complete, true and authentic godforms of the 0=0 Grade of Neophyte, of the Order of the Golden Dawn in the Outer!
The True and Invisible Secret Chief
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Snuffleupagus
This Godform is only seen by the Imperator of the Truest Order of the Golden Dawn. Many seek him, and are told to look for him, however only the Imperator has eyes which are Holy enough to be able to behold him in his glorified godform. This godform should NEVER be assumed, but is for your information only.
The Godform of the Imperator
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Big Bird
The Imperator is the ‘Ruler’ of the Order, and makes all judgments regarding conflicts or issues of legality within the Order. As stated previously, only he has the eyes that may behold the Great and Holy Secret Chief. His Mantle is bright Yellow, with a Yellow Nemyss and he wears Orange socks or footwear.
The Godform of the Praemonstrator
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Elmo
The Praemonstrator is the ‘Teacher’ of the Order. He is in charge of the Knowledge Lectures and information of the First and Second Orders. He is often heard instructing others, letter by letter, precept upon precept, as it should be done. His Mantle is Red, with a Red Nemyss and googly eyes.
The Godform of the Cancellarius
True and Secret Egyptian Name: The Count
The Cancellarius is the ‘Secretary’ of the Order. Of an obvious nature, he must keep track of the number of members, the bills of the Order, as well as Dues by members. This requires special accounting skills of which The Count is an obvious master (Von! Von new Neophyte! Ah-Hah-Hah!). His Mantle is Black, with a Monocle worn on the left eye.
The Godform of the Hierophant
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Kermit
The Hierophant is the Ruler and Governor of the Outer Order, and he presides at all meetings of the Outer. His energy is strong, and he rules the temple from his Lily Pad in the East. His Mantle is Green, with a multi-spiked collar.
The Godform of the Hiereus
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Cookie Monster
The Hiereus keeps the hunger for cookies darkness at bay. He is known for his strength of will, and he is seated on throne of the West. While most godforms are assumed by the Vibration of their True and Secret Name, the godform of Cookie Monster is assumed by the vibration of the secret key phrase of the Hiereus, never revealed before, until now: “Nom, Nom, Nom”. His Mantle is Blue, and like that of Elmo, wears a Blue Nemyss with Googly Eyes.
The Godform of the Hegemon
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Grover (aka ‘Super-Grover’ when representing the Higher Self of a candidate during the Ceremony of Initiation).
The Hegemon is the place of balance within the Temple. The Godform of Grover is one of peace and tranquility. While his base character is one of peace, the Godform of Grover is a complex one, with several forms. When representing the place of balance, he is the simple and peaceful form of Grover. When representing the Higher Self of a Candidate for initiation, he takes the form of ‘Super-Grover’, as seen above. His final form, and as yet unrevealed form, is known as ‘The Monster at the End of this Book’. His Mantle is Blue, with a bright pink nose, and when assumed as ‘Super-Grover’, wears a pink cape with yellow tie string.
The Godform of the Kerux
True and Secret Egyptian Name: The Amazing Mumford
The Kerux is the mouthpiece of the Temple, and as such sometimes tends to be a showman. His keyword, used prior to each pronouncement or proclamation, is “A la Peanut Butter Sandwiches”. He wears a red cape with a black top-hat shaped nemyss.
The Godform of the Stolistes
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Ernie
Rarely seen without the Stolistes counterpart (the Stolistes, Ernie, is the one on the left in the picture), the Stolistes is the place of the receptive energies and the bottom of the well of water. Her duty is to purify the hall, candidate and members by water. The Stolistes wears a Blue, Red and Yellow horizontally-striped Mantle, and should be accompanied by the working tool of the Rubber Duckie.
The Godform of the Dadouchos
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Bert
The Dadouchos (the one on the right in the picture) is the place of the projected energies of the temple, and has one of the top active roles in the temple. His duty is to consecrate the hall, candidate and members by fire. The Stolistes wears a Blue, Red and Yellow vertically-striped Mantle (preferably in a V-Neck with a turtle-neck undershirt), and is sometimes accompanied by the working tool of the “henh-heh” Pigeon.
The Godform of the Sentinel
True and Secret Egyptian Name: Oscar
The Sentinel is the Guardian of the Temple, and guards the door against intruders. With such a difficult job, he is sometimes referred to as ‘The Grouch’. His Mantle is Green, with a round metal nemyss, and he is seated inside of a metal container, often resembling a trash can. This is to protect him against those who may choose to challenge him for entry into the temple.
We hope that the Golden Dawn community will be open to these additions and modifications to the Godforms of the 0=0 grade. As with anything within the greater Golden Dawn community, it is sure to cause controversy and infighting. However, know that these godforms are the true revelations given by the Secret Chiefs, Fraters M, L and C (see our previous blog on the Formal Announcement of Secret Contacts), and are for the benefit of all.
This Formal Announcement of the true and sacred Godforms of the Order has been brought to you by the letters B and S, and the number i (Mathematicians will get that one).
