Hypothesis on Being an Adept Initiate

 

To Be an Adept Initiate is to cultivate, in no particular order, the following:

  1. Understanding of and compassion towards one’s mechanical desires and natural functions. Keyword: Indulgence.
  2. To retain a permanent sense of Aim, that is, to serve the deep need for Being-Remanifestation through one’s self.
  3. Appreciation and precise application of the inevitable mystery and uncertainty in one’s life and in the world. Keyword: Runa.
  4. To gather a complete sense of the self as an unfolding subjective narrative. Keyword: Aletheia.
  5. To gain a sense of immediate meaning towards every action and non-action in the world. Keyword: Walhalla.
  6. Interaction with the world in ways that are reciprocally enhancing and true to the principle of the Highest of Life. Keyword: Arkte.

This is the abstract. The true test of Adepthood is in finding how each of these can be realized, in the sense of the Initiation becoming a concrete reality.

Three songs from the Heart


And you feel like you’ve been here

So many times before
It’s not the door you’re using
But the way you’re walking through it

The heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on

One eye goes laughing,
one eye goes crying
through the trials and trying of one life
one hand is tied,
one step gets behind
in one breath we’re dying
