The Private Diary of John Dee


1554. Aug. 25th, Barthilmew Hikman born at Shugborowh in Warwikshyre toward evening. My conjecture, uppon his own reporte of circumstances. Oct. 25th, D. Daniel Vander Meulen Antwerpiæ, mane hora quarta.[a]

[Footnote a: It is almost unnecessary to observe that this and the following are notes of nativities. They are not for the most part contemporary notices, but apparently inserted at various times by Dee when professionally consulted as an astrologer.]

1555. April 22nd, Jane Fromonds borne at Cheyham at none. Aug. 1st, Ed. Kelly natus hora quarta a meridie[b] ut annotatum reliquit pater ejus. Oct. 12th, the Lord Willughby born hora septima mane, ante meridiem, Lat. 51° 30′, at Wesell in Gelderland.

[Footnote b: “Anno 1555, Aug. 1, hora quarta a meridie Wigorniæ natus Dominus Edouardus Kelæus,” MS. Ashm. 1788, fol. 140, where there is a horoscope of this nativity in the handwriting of Dr. Dee. Ashmole, in his MS. 1790, fol. 58, says “Mr. Lilly told me that John Evans informed him that he was acquainted with Kelly’s sister in Worcester, that she shewed him some of the gold her brother had transmuted, and that Kelly was first an apothecary in Worcester.”]

What motivates you?

Some people get their drive or motivation from other people. While others get their dedication and motivation from a higher calling. Some get it for a need to succeed, and still others get it only during a particular task. What motivates you the best and what is the best motivator?

*Motivation through fear*
Unfortunately, this is on the top of many people’s lists. They get motivated only when fear drives them. Not necessarily fear for their life but fear they may get failing grades or fear they are getting to fat. IS fear a good motivator? Yes, absolutely but it is not a sustainable motivator. Fear often adds an unnecessary amount of stress or worry on the individual.

The mystery school, religion, faith, and hope

Virtually every secret society or mystery school is shrouded. They are shrouded with elaborate stories. Most every mystery school owes its foundations to a group of Elder brothers or one secret messiah. Yet it seems only this group knows of these enlightened beings. Schools such, as the Rosicrucians, The Golden Dawn, The Theosophical Society, even main stream religion has its enlightened ones.

Most of these schools can weave a fantastic tale about how their founder was visited. The story goes on to say the founder was revealed mysterious occult knowledge. Most of these claims however can’t be disputed.
