E.O.F. Presents + THE SACRED ORDER OF THE GOLDEN DAWN +

sacred order 1

 AMINUS FACIT NOBILEM.

{“The Spirit Makes The Human Noble.”}

Getting ready for school or work, you might have noticed that day by day you are submitting to any number of rituals. Whether it’s washing your face or prepping for your day at the mirror, all these little things add up to make the recipe for the spell that will hopefully get you through the day. . .

This is a tradition as old as time itself. It seems so simple at first, almost unnoticeable if you haven’t thought about it, but our daily routines and the simple act of getting ready for the day is as powerful as any incantation.

sacred order 6

Focus is key, as you don’t want to invoke the wrong spirit for the day.  But if you are able to summon from deep within that one spirit that can transform you, and in turn, how you are perceived by the world, then you have a real chance of winning. But, making that metamorphosis is something only a genuine and true individual can truly take on.

For centuries, hundreds, maybe thousands, of secret societies have existed looking to possess the power of these sacred secret spirits. From the mysteries of Egypt and Ancient Greece, to Yeats’ and Crowley’s “Golden Dawn”, to the secret dormitories of the Ivy League, members of certain sacred orders have endured through the ages and kept alive this powerful knowledge.

The most powerful spirit they hope to set free is that of the ‘Rebel‘. The most courageous and strong of any being. The ‘Rebel’ is fearless and has been able to survive with its’ strong will, determination, and unwillingness to submit to anyone, or anything.

Sacred Order 10

“The mystery religions were instituted in order to protect the marvels of the commonplace from those who would devalue them.”

                      {Peter Redgrove, “The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real”.}

Long ago, high up in the sky a rebel band of Angels existed, unhappy with their destiny. Instead of sitting pretty playing harps and twirling their fingers through their hair, they followed their leader, the bold Lucifer, and leaped down from the sky and into the river Styx where they still reside to this day, invulnerable to the world, and ready to play as they please . . .

Invoking the rebel spirit is one of the things we do best here at The Eye, and possessing oneself with the invulnerability of the River Styx will without a doubt work in your favor, no matter the circumstance. Who wants to be vulnerable anyway? Instead, own your destiny, and write a place in history for yourself.

We have explored the history of these sacred orders and secret societies and have been entranced by this tradition of rebellion. The deeper you begin to look, the deeper you can understand that we are in fact living in a {Rebel Society}.

+THE SACRED ORDER OF THE GOLDEN DAWN+ is about the invocation of this ‘Rebel’ Spirit, and the traditions of spreading this magical word, and the power imparted onto the individual, once freed from a life of waiting. The answers are all around us, and only the chosen shall see them.

sacred order 18

There is a warning, however, in summoning the ‘Rebel’ to pervade the soul: always remember that the ‘Rebel’ spirit doesn’t work for anyone, and once summoned, there is no guarantees how long they might want to stay, or the darkness they might uncover once you are shown the light.

Do you think you have what it takes to invoke the ‘Rebel’ spirit? If so, take a ride with   The Eye of Faith and lets aim for Styx!

{STYLE WISE} CARRIE (1976) VS. CARRIE (2013)

 Graduations have commenced, the lockers are empty, and uniforms have been put on the top shelf, but this doesn’t stop us from being pumped for this year’s style conscious remake of “Carrie” starring stylish ingenue Chloe Grace Moretz, and mystic maven Julianne Moore, as Carrie’s fanatical mother. 

“These Are Godless Times, Mrs. Snell”

-Margaret White, “Carrie” by Stephen King.

The film is set to release in October, but until now we can just quench on the latest trailer, and take a look back at what made “Carrie” great so many years back (almost 30!).

Surely no one can outdo Sissy Spacek’s alien beauty and frail feminine qualities, but undeniably Ms. Grace Moretz will bring a freshness to the part that she’s consistently showcased in her last several films. This is her big BIG break. Much as it was Spacek’s those many years ago. . .

{ “CARRIE” (1976) VS. “CARRIE” (2013) }

High school seems like a world away now, but we can’t help but feel a certain sense of nostalgia for those long lost days roaming the hallways, hanging out in the labyrinths of the school auditorium, or ditching gym. “Carrie” does right to set its horrors amongst the most sacred rite of teenage life, {Prom Night}.

I remember my own, decked out in vintage duds; a little gang of mischief-makers danced the night away in the cavern of some out-of-the-way banquet hall in middle-of-nowhere southern Ontario. Waiting for the bus at midnight across from an empty field was but one of the many highlights that mark {Prom Night} as truly a night to remember. Not unlike the kids in “Carrie” . . .

And no better way to get yourself prepped for the film directed by Kimberly Peirce, whose 1999 film “Boys Don’t Cry” had Hilary Swank walking away with an Academy Award for Best Actress (as well as a Best Supporting Actress nod to fashion darling, Chloe Sevigny).

Sounds like a sure-bet to me!

Don’t get this secret diva mad, because once you do,

there’s no holding back those flood gates.
