    Lightbulb Just a Few Words

    I'll just say a few short words.

    Dozens of years looking for the secret, and one day you meet him, face to face, and in that moment, the mystery disappears. The rabbit hole is already full. The obsession is gone.

    And you ask yourself, why did I stay up for so many years? What was the use of chasing the hermetic seal for so long, if it seems that it always demands the need for new paths? If when you look at it, it mutates and gets lost in other ways ...

    And in the end, you understand… that's exactly what it is for, to keep walking. Sometimes the important thing is not to access the secret, but to the teaching that its search offers us. Maybe.

    Be well my Friends.

    A mistake, maybe? Feel free to put it where it should go, if you wish...

    While I fully respect your opinion, I vehemently disagree with this approach personally. I know Awani and others might not like the fact that I keep quoting Sufi authorities rather than giving my own opinion, but it's hard not to when I exactly agree with what was said.




    It is not hard to argue that this was the purpose of the Hermetic path of alchemy and magic as well. Death before you die. I like this imaginative reconstruction of the Hermetic path from the Grand Initiates, commented on by a Sufi master:

    It's perfect that you have another approach of this topic, and I love it! I really do.

    Two things that come to my mind: The first is that there may be more than one way. And the wonderful thing is that perhaps all of them can bring us to a good end.
    And the other thing is that certain experiences are non-transferable. Some goals cannot be reached by intellectualization of the experience, but by experience itself. And even two people on the same seach can experience different sides of it.

    Quote U2: "We're one but we're not the same"

    But, this are just words. Soon or later, we all get to "that" place.

    The journey more important than the destination.
    Depends on the journey.
    If it is easy you want more of a challenge.
    If it is hard you want less of one.
    Does it have meaning ? Or is it just rabbit holes and hats ?
    What do you make of it ?. A trick ? Or something true ?
    The irony is the field of force is generated by you.
    Not the substance you gave so much power too.

    Fucking rhymes...

    Edit - Fuck U2.

    You got a face not spoiled by beauty
    I have some scars from where I've been
    You've got eyes that can see right through me
    You're not afraid of anything they've seen
    I was told that I would feel nothing the first time
    I don't know how these cuts heal
    But in you I found a rhyme
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.
