The Ultimate Good versus Evil Story
Harry Potter Is No Franz Bardon
In a world fascinated with Harry Potter and his fantastical world created by J.K. Rowlings it is hard to take the concept of magic seriously. Even so, people remain fascinated with the concept. The idea that it is possible to manipulate matter in a way that would defy known physics is still, at some level, very much a part of the general consciousness. Needless to say, it is not something that just anyone can presume to be able to do in reality. However, there has been enough lore from the past to have established a precedence that such things or, the possibility of such things having actually existed and so has kept the idea very much alive in popular culture through literature, cinema and both old and new writings that seem to keep finding a new audience with every new generation.
Enter Franz Bardon. A real life Czech magician, with the battle scares from having fought against real life, historical evil, real life history to prove it and, an autobiography that can be substantiated with witnesses and actual newspaper clippings from the 1930’s when he lived, performed and demonstrated his magical abilities before astounded audiences.
As a finer point of fact, born in 1909, Franz Bardon’s place of birth was Austrian Silesia which was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. At the time neither the Czech Republic or Czechoslovakia existed as nations.
Frabato The Magician is the introductory volume of the three books of magical training written by Franz Bardon. His work represents the only complete course in Hermetics given to humanity in it’s entirety. Hermetics is also known as the path of perfection or purification through the Sacred Mysteries.
Franz Bardon is Frabato the Magician. In the book Frabato the Magician , Franz Bardon accurately introduces the reader to the spiritual world. Very few are aware of the fact that what can be accomplished towards spiritual maturity through diligent effort in one day on Earth takes a thousand days in the spiritual world. This is so because, nowhere else in creation are good and evil place side by side to the extent that they are on Earth, making it much easier for one to understand the other and the consequences of each. Life on Earth has always been a challenge but it is because of that challenge that learning is faster from an incarnation on Earth.
The world of Franz Bardon is not at all like the world of the fictional Harry Potter. The Harry Potter movie series, although very entertaining, draws you into a very make believe world. Harry Potter does bring back into common discussion the possibility of magic being real even if it does not treat “magic” as something real. By and large, Harry Potter is a fairy tale that distorts most, if not all, that has to do with real magical practices.
It is interesting to note how many movies have been made about magic and myth – things that are not supposed to exist. It’s a very long list. They do use some facts but often they are distorted or exaggerated for dramatic effect. What commonly prevails however, when magic is the theme of any book or movie is the struggle between good and evil.
Frabato The Magician takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the spiritual world and also behind the veil of a world that exists here on Earth, of which most people are completely unaware – although given the craziness of the present day world some people may be starting to wonder. Many people living on Earth, especially in the more civilized world, live as if there is only a physical existence, giving little mind to the unseen things of the spirit world. In most cultures an acknowledgement of things spiritual was part of normal life. Sometimes, the World is given the circumstances or opportunity to remind them of that. Natural disasters are one way that Providence uses to do that for some but, for others who already suspect it, finding information about it is enough of a confirmation.
In Frabato the Magician, the autobiography of Franz Bardon, you will read about powerful and evil organizations and how futile their struggle is against goodness. It should be noted that all things serve Providence and when evils are committed, Providence works towards turning it back towards good. The reader will learn the kind of methods which are employed by the evil forces to reach their goals and how an entire organization is completely powerless when it comes up against a single man who is a Master of Hermetics being backed by Divine Providence.
Many examples are given in Frabato the Magician to show the abilities that such an initiate has, whereas in the subsequent volumes step by step instructions are given to show how these seemingly unbelievable feats are done. Once the reader knows how these feats are accomplished, it seems very simple. However, in order to become a master it requires many years of great dedication. The maturity we feel we may have earned is not easily granted. Our existence is not that straight forward. We exist as part of something much greater than ourselves. Spiritual achievement is not as simple as going to school, making the grade and then graduating with a certificate. We in the physical world live in relative darkness compared to what exists in the spiritual world. There, the qualities of our character are visible to whom ever is watching over us. Powers are granted only to those who’s characters are worthy of it.
The author also explains the reasons why the Mysteries were revealed and why Divine Providence gave him the task of publishing them. In actuality the complete series of Franz Bardon’s books are the Holy Mysteries or, the Sacred Egyptian Mysteries as they were taught and practiced by Hermes himself, as depicted in the Bible, and which Christ taught to His disciples. In ancient Egypt the Holy Mysteries were taught to the spiritually gifted and privileged few by the high priests. As such, the Mysteries still remain mysteries in spite of the fact that they have been openly revealed to everyone through the work of Franz Bardon.
The word “magic” will take on an entirely new meaning once the reader becomes familiar with the content of Frabato the Magician. The physical world remains necessary even though it will somewhat loose its appeal, because it no longer will be able to answer questions which arise. All in all the answers which you have received throughout the years will no longer satisfy you. And by reading these books you will find the answers to most of your questions. However, if you go beyond reading and you dedicate your time to the practice, the results will be gratifying and enlightening. Anyone wanting more details of life should also read the works of Jakob Lorber and Emanuel Swedenborg.
In the appendix you will find fragments of the actual Book of Wisdom. Wisdom was written by Franz Bardon, the tapes were allegedly destroyed by the police during his arrest by the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia.
To learn these facts and practices you do not require a teacher, you are not required to learn another language in order to understand the terminology, and you are not required to change your religion or join any organization. This in itself is already a huge relief as so many organizations suggest that membership is integral to learning.
Frabato the Magician is the autobiography of Franz Bardon. Being one of the twentieth century’s greatest Hermetic adepts he could not very well advertise who or what he was. Instead, in order to show the world what was possible, Franz Bardon used the stage name Frabato to perform as a magician to show the practical application of real magic to an audience that was always left completely amazed by his masterful displays with audience participation. Set in the 1930’s in Dresden, Germany the story chronicles Frabato’s stage performances, his magical battles with the members of a powerful black lodge, his encounters with Adolf Hitler, his escape from Germany during the final desperate days of the Weimar Republic, and how and why his was commissioned by Divine Providence to real the sacred mysteries of Hermetic magic.
More than a novel, Frabato the Magician is a life lesson to all of us, especially in the present world that seem controlled by forces well beyond the ballot box. Frabato the Magician is itself a work of magic which illuminates Bardon’s other books as well as providing a revealing look into Adolf Hitler and the dark occult forces that which lay behind the rise of the Third Reich.
Franz Bardon has been helping humanity for a very long time and has had several significant incarnations for the sake of humanity. Nostradamus, Apollonius of Tyana, Roger Bacon, Robert Fludd, Hermes Trismagistus to name a few.
“A very hard act to follow” indeed!
