Heartbeats

 

The Heart beats
the first beat

I turn my clock upside down
wind it to measure infinity

I delve deeper
reach for higher
I laugh and I cry
at my own self
with open eyes, with open heart
embracing my fear

The Heart beats
the second beat

I learn songs
forgotten words
the distant might of my blood

I find the sun within
and friends
at the eve of battle

I find the drum
and its heart
I find the Source
and the sacred flows through me

The Heart beats
the third beat

In the deep dark
of the unknown
in me
there is a light that never dims

The Heart beats.

On Initiation

Xeper is the mechanism of harnessing your self to serve the timeless Being. Xeper can be a most simple event – common even; yet it is also a direct contact with the most sacred experience of life.

This is what the Initiation is about: sacredness of Being and Doing.

Being in that there is sacredness in you: The core of your self, a seed for more-to-be, a beginning of Will. A sacred heart that is more than and most importantly different from your ordinary humanity. (Or perhaps this is the very definition of humanity at its most potent form.)

Doing in that you can create more that is sacred: First by sacralizing yourself, striving and growing within yourself. This is the function of the Heart. Then by sacralizing the exchange with the outside, opening outwards to life. Active understanding and reciprocally living with your surrounding, trusting that whatever your Will is, you have the right to Act upon it. Only through such actions can the self learn truly more of itself and realize (make real) the Being as a living entity. This is the function of the Magical Link.

Beyond the concept there is the experience. The alignment of Being where boundaries blur and you are at the same time more condensed and separated, and yet more connected, fully intertwined with what is life and what are its possibilities.

The Gift of the Prince of Darkness is the ability to experience the sacred and to engage in the self-creation essential to the sacralization process.

Pyhä luo pyhää.

The Work of the Adept

 

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow

Between the conception
And the creation

Between the potency
And the existence

Falls the Shadow

– T.S. Eliot. The Hollow Men

And so we can see in the Dark of our own Shadows, and Act to the Need of our Creative Aim.
