Among various modern occultism movements, there are often mentions of some out-worldly transcendent cosmic authorities, beings on spiritual hierarchy responsible for the operation and moral calibre of the cosmos, named as 'Secret Chiefs'.
These so-called 'Secret Chiefs' refer to humans or extraterrestrial beings with transcendent power and wisdom. They are said to possess knowledge that is too ginormous to be described in mere human words, based on which they are in a hypothesized to be almost omnipotent in nature.
Their names and descriptions have varied through time, dependent upon those who reflect their experience of contact with them.
Many relate this to be similar with the 'Blind men and an Elephant' story or in this case, phenomenon where the form of Secret Chiefs manifest differently for each person on the basis of how they perceive from their point of view.
In modern occultism cabals, these transcendental entities often oversee the operations of an organization that manifests outwardly in the form of a magical order.
For the most prominent magic association or magic cabal of this era—Golden Dawn also known with alias of 'Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn' that has completely influenced modern occultism, there are three levels of order.
On the basis of their principal power system— 'Silver Star Grading System', the grades are referenced to by paired numbers separated by an equal sign, relating to the associated position on the Tree of Life.
With the exception of the initial 0=0 grade which has no associated position, the first numeral is the number of steps up from the bottom of the tree (Malkuth), while the second is the number of steps down from the top (Keter).
And these 'Secret Chiefs' fall under the section of the highest order— third order among the whole three orders. The most basic 'Secret Chiefs' are of 8=3 grade, while some 'Secret Chief' are less often, also associated with higher grades.
(Note- I have released a seperate chapter in Volume 0 to better understand the 'Silver Star Grading System'.)
The 'Secret Chief' are able 'to comprehend the divine will without a material body', and those entities who can comprehend the 'divine will' under with the human body are known as 'Gods of Magic'!
In past century, a occultist named Helena Blavatsky rose with unprecedented speed to ultimately become the founder of Theosophy, shocking many. Many say that she was favored by a certain 'Secret Chief' and thus gained great knowledge under mutual interchange.
The eye blinding serene Angel floating behind Roy is also one of such 'Secret Chief'. According to this Angel, it is an extraterrestrial life form with unprecedented knowledge bonded under reality.
Grainy specks of light twirled around the golden haired being, levitating with a tall and thin stature, wearing loose pristine white clothing that covered its body in entirety, a pair of naked feet exuding holy brilliance, with an bright halo on top of it's head, the Angel-like being manifested itself.
It's expression proved difficult to ascertain, not because it held an expressionless face, but rather a baffling mixture of happiness, sadness, grief, and anger–a complete inhumanly possible expression was plastered on it's face.
It's face was effeminate-looking, but it was completely impossible to distinguish his gender from a human point of view, but Roy felt that it's features somewhat leaned toward being a 'female'.
Perhaps, it is precisely because of Roy's thinking that the angel in front of him appears in this form, no matter what it's true appreance may be. Maybe in outward appearance, it seemed to be getting closer to the concept of 'female' because others thought so.
Holy Guardian Angel—Aiwass is her name, a 'Secret Chief', a mysterious existence summoned by Aleister Crowley using the body of his beloved wife.
Roy doesn't know from when Aiwass started to appear behind him like a spirit. From then, when he was conscious of his mind, he could already see Aiwass following behind him.
Roy once asked from Aiwass the reason for following him, and Aiwass gave the one:
'You are an interesting person, a mystery, a wonder, a person who couldn't and shouldn't appear, the person I want to find, I shall observe you by your side and find the place I have been searching for but still can't realize.'
Aiwass words were ambiguous and vague, but Roy didn't ask for more detailed information, because a higher life form like Aiwass has her own mysterious feature and will never easily tell anyone the truth and the knowledge.
It is more like an observer, observing the existence it is interested in such as— Aleister Crowley and Roy Crowley.
An existence like Aiwass is not a single individual. She can completely transform herself into a 'plural' form, which means that there is an Aiwass by Roy's side and another by Aleister's side. They are both Aiwaas, observing the father and son duo together at the same time.
"Answering your question..."
Aiwass has emotions such as happiness, anger, sorrow, and so on, but Roy always has a strange feeling from the bottom of his heart when facing her, her emotions are not like humane, but more of a sort of unknown angelic emotions.
Her voice was a bit distorted and dizzy, as if the aural law of the world couldn't accommodate the sound, the voice felt like the sound of 'Zizzz' from an old TV with bad signal.
According to Aiwass's explanation, this was because her words are difficult for humans to understand, so this distortion phenomenon is projected to the listeners.
"...Lola Zaza Crowley's body is inhabitanted by 'Great Demon'—Coronzon. He is the demon symbolizing '333'. Ten years ago, he tried to invade Aleister's body and failed, and somehow ran away. Arrived in London, and from then started to dwell in Lola Zaza Crowley's body."
Aiwass voice tweeted under a strange timbre, as if she was trying to translate some secret transcended words that humans cannot understand into ordinary English.
"The 'Great Demon' Coronzon? Since you are called the 'Holy Guardian Angel', is Coronzon's existance similar to you?"
Roy frowned. It would be very troublesome if the demon lodged in Lola's body was the same existence level of existence like Aiwass. He never thought that this demon had such a big background.
But, from a outsider's point of view, it is also really interesting to think that both the brother and sister are embroiled with such beings which others may not even get the chance to see in their lifetimes, one with an Archangel behind him, and the other with a big demon in her body.
"You can take Coronzon as a Fallen Angel. He is indeed an existence similar to mine... Existences like us live in the higher aspect X$XX&#XX, and can only appear in the material world in the form of a 'spirit'."
"As a 'spirit', we cannot exert too much influence on the material world. We must have a physical medium to do so."
"This is why Coronzon wanted to seize Aleister's body and now wants to sieze Lola's. Without a medium, he is just a 'spirit' who can only observe."
A part of Aiwass' words were automatically blocked. Roy knew that it was not that Aiwass deliberately skipped through, but when she said the word, he was not able to hear it due to his own limitations,
Since a human brain could not understand it, the brain automatically filtered out that word.
"I don't want to know the origin of Coronzon. Aiwass, I just want to ask what can I do to expel that demon's 'spirit' from Lola's body."
Roy interrupted Aiwass's long talk and asked the question that poked him the most.
"You can't do it."
Aiwass answered decisively.
"Then who can do it?"
"Aleister Crowley may be able to."
"Where is Aleister now? I'm going to find him!"
This time Aiwass did not answer Roy, the 'Holy Guardian Angel', the 'Secret Chief' from a high-level aspect gave Roy a strange errific smile.
"...Roy, I want to ask you, is Lola Zaza Crowley really your sister?"
"What do you mean?"
Roy was shocked to Aiwass's words and turned his head to see her weird smile.
Just as Roy was about to inquire more about her words, Aiwass's figure faded away from Roy's sight.
Roy knew that as long as Aiwass herself didn't want to, he couldn't force her for any additional answers.
Roy exhaled deeply, he clenched his fist and went to the floor-to-ceiling mirror inside his room.
He knew that it was all because he was too weak and didn't have enough knowledge and strength that his situation has turned passive.
"Should I have taken the risk..?"
If he had great power and rich knowledge, he could atleast try to expel the demon dwelling in Lola's body by himself.
If he had great power and rich knowledge, he would find the truth about everything without relying on outsiders.
Roy whispered, he never wanted to possess power and knowledge so much, his heart was getting desperate and his head boiling with each passing second.
Standing in front of the floor-to-ceiling mirror, Roy looked at the boy in the mirror. Although this body was only fifteen years old, he was already 1.8 meters tall.
He had slightly long deathly silver-white hair and a neutraly handsome face. Without informing, people wouldn't be able to distinguish him between a beautiful man or a beautiful women, yes, that kind of face.
Yes, that is the face that can be described as 'beautifully' handsome either you are a man, or a woman.
Roy could guess that his hair colour and facial features should have been inherited from Aleister Crowley. Even though he has never seen the man called 'father', Roy knew that Aleister was an attractive man with long silver hair and a neutral, attractive face.
In any case, compared to Roy's appearance before his reincarnation, he is now many times more attractive.
"If I had a face like this in my past life, I guess I wouldn't be missing a girlfriend at all, right? ...Haha, what am I even thinking now, am I getting insane or what..."
Roy laughed at himself, then looked into his eyes in the mirror.
A pair of sky blue eyes, which was the only feature Roy had inherited from his past life, because those gem like sparkling eyes, there were actually two pupils each, which is the feature of the legendary Double Pupil Sage!
Roy before his 'reincarnation' was also called Roy, but his surname was Roy, instead of the current situation where it is his first name.
When he was a child, he was ridiculed by other children for being bizzare until he grew up and read many xianxia novels, and the foolish hot blooded teen he was, he became excited on discovering his 'true identity'.
Double pupils means the appearance of a Sage, he once felt complacent that he was the reincarnation of a saint with extraordinary power.
Until one day, Roy went to the ophthalmology hospital. After the ophthalmologist said, "The double pupil is actually the pupil's adhesion and distortion, it may be congenital or result from a disease affecting the iris." He emerged out from his childhood fantasy.
In his later life, he was completely indifferent of being called as the Double pupil Sage. Have you ever seen a Sage take photography as a profession, occasionally relying on his photography skills to earn a living?
Thinking of those interesting memories of the past, Roy couldn't help but let out a light laugh.
But soon he restrained himself and set his attention on his messy silver hair again.
What is the hair color of the mother of this body? I can't remember.... but surely, I inherited Aleister's silver hair.
Was Lola's long blond hair inherited from our mother?
What did Aiwass really mean?
Did she meant to say if I really accepted her as my sister?
...Yes, definitely, there's no doubt about that!
So, what could possibly... wait.
Is Lola really... my sister?
Recalling what Aiwass said just now, a faint fear arose in Roy's heart.
If Lola is not his own sister, who is she?
He has been living with her for so many years, she always sweetly calls him as "brother" with a cute smile.
...and if she is not my sister, who is she?
Roy suddenly hit the wall with his fist in full force. The pain that came from the nerve endings in his hand stimulated his brain as the bright red blood slid down the wall from between his fingers.
"No, Lola is my sister, that cute and beautiful sister, whoever she may be, it can't be denied that she is my sister!"
Roy said firmly without any hint of hesitation.
