Seeing My Face As Shadows (February – March 2018)


This is the not-you
at your kernal
the being you will into existence
by making your shadow manifest
the discarded parts of yourself
that unlock the potential
that once you feared
By embracing it you become whole hole
holy and profane
you reach out to us
to find the key to negation
only by shaking the snowglobe of your existence
and becoming the hidden
can you understand.
Feel the wrath at your core
and set it free

Expansion of Understanding (February 2018)

“Religion is the emulation of the adult by the child. Religion is the encystment of past beliefs: mythology, which is guesswork, the hidden assumptions of trust in the universe, those pronouncements which men have made in search of personal power, all of it mingled with shreds of enlightenment. And always the ultimate unspoken commandment is ‘Thou shalt not question!’ But we question. We break that commandment as a matter of course. The work to which we have set ourselves is the liberating of the imagination, the harnessing of imagination to humankind’s deepest sense of creativity.”
— Frank Herbert


The universe is non-simultaneously apprehended”
― R. Buckminster Fuller


By non-simultaneously apprehended, Fuller meant that the universe was too big to be understood all at once by us contained within it. Even if everything that is in the universe is in us microcosmically. If you add to that the unending void that the universe springs from, the possibility of anyone holding the complete and unquestionable truth (never mind being able to understand it) becomes impossible.
There is always more to learn, new gnosis to gain and old worn out ideas to discard. Avoid like the plague those who would feed your inner laziness by offering you the children’s model that they hold as absolute, especially if they ask you to take it on faith. (In my experience when someone asks you to take something on faith, they do not offer lube to ease it in but that is neither here nor there. Explore and question your knowledge, your beliefs, your gnosis and your understanding being willing to discard it all or any of it for a better model. You will find help along the way. Seek to know and act creatively reaching to expand and ascend and become. I know of no more worthwhile endeavor.

Conversations Leading to Action (February 2018)


““To a magician, there is very little difference between a mirror and a door.”
— Susanna Clarke


Through these doors and mirrors, we bring ourselves. Oh perhaps we’ll adopt a new face and a new persona in hopes of impressing whoever we may meet but inside its ourselves. No matter what door we go through. Our perceptions will be us coloured. Of course, if we know ourselves we know exactly what that shade is and can compensate. Removing just that amount from what we perceive that we react to more of the reality behind the veil.. behind our being… Of course it takes so long to figure that out and by the time it has, our colour may have shifted…
