This Mardukite blog-post reviews Ascending Order TV (hosted by Joshua Free, from our YouTube channel) and excerpts from “Mardukite Master Course: A Brief Introduction” as the article it appears in “Arcanum Annual 2021 Review.“
The Complete Mardukite Master Course spans three Grades of knowledge. All literary works currently in print from the JOSHUA FREE IMPRINT (JFI Publishing Offices)—originally written between 1995 and 2019—all pertain to a singular stream of complete instruction spanning these three Grades or knowledge tiers. The Mardukite Master Course is designed to provide a clear understanding and unification of all material presented across the three Grades.
“Well, I’m very pleased to announce completion of the Master Edition volumes that comprise this Mardukite Master Course. The purpose of this really—not only for the Mardukite Academy and the Systemology Society, which the course serves—is to provide master instruction for Masters, and by that, I of course mean Instructors too. It’s important for me to give this course initially too, because as a writer I have a tendency to sit up in the Ivory Tower and just kind of look out…”
The Mardukite Master Course follows a chronological “Pathway” charted and recorded personally by JOSHUA FREEbfrom 1995 to 2019—
–from the first “Merlyn Stone” discourses on magick and Druidism (Grade-I),
–through all work of the Mardukite Chamberlains (Mardukite Research Org) and its pursuit of Mesopotamian Traditions (Grade-II),
–and finally, the most recent completion of Grade-III as “Mardukite Systemology.”
These Grades realize and complete an organizational premise written in 1999 by JOSHUA FREE detailing future plans for a Sacred and Mystic Order of the Crystal Dawn. Now, after two decades, the Mardukite Academy carries forth that futurist vision originated by our Founder.
“What we are doing now with this Course is being certain of the duplication of material and its knowledge or true understanding. This Course is not a dictation; I'm not going to sit up here and read you the material. But, we are recording this for the Academy posterity; and also to publish transcripts for those unable to experience the Master Course in person today at the Academy.” --Joshua Free
“We begin with what’s readily accessible; then further reach into the past—to the extent literary records will allow. In Grade-III, we work with a composite of it all, because the Grades are not ‘exclusive’ to one another. However, our understanding and realization is more refined at each level as we reclaim more of what was lost. Because we found that since the heights of ancient Mesopotamia, with varying cultures and time passing—well, the relay of communication was not being perfectly duplicated, and thus degraded, moving us downward from a perfected state.” –Joshua Free
“I was careful not to make the same mistakes as others when I laid out the Master Grades. There are those that work with what we apply as Grade-I that have a tendency to treat that level as the whole end-all or be-all of the Path. Many individuals do reach the vista of Grade-I, which is represented, figuratively only, as the ‘lunar level’: the ‘Sphere’ or ‘Veil’ of Moon—and yes, we mean the First Step on the Ladder of Lights —the Stairway to True Ascension.
So, to answer the most burning question I’ve received since launching the Grades: Do they relate to the Gates?—And the answer is yes.” –Joshua Free
“For those familiar with the cross-references of the BAB-ILI Gate-System), when we are treating the Master Grades I, II and III, we are respectively dealing with the first three Gates—those represented by the Moon, Mercury and Venus.” –Joshua Free
Mardukite Systemology (Grade-III) is pinnacle to what a Seeker works at in the Master Course. It is the approach taken by an “Instructor” or “Master” to the whole body of material. Thus, Grade-I and Grade-II are treated with a Grade-III “Master” level of understanding for the Master Course. Each paradigm is treated as a “Route through” rather than a totality or final destination-point. This is what separates “initiates” from “Masters.” The average contemporary “New Ager” or “esoteric practitioner” rarely reaches beyond a Grade-I level of understanding or realization as an actualization point. Discoveries regarding application of “Seven Levels” or “Seven Gates” or “Seven Steps” (up to Infinity) to our work became clear with a “Master-Level” understanding of the systematic structure of veils and thresholds being cast off as an individual moves further upward or higher on the Pathway.
