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
on 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.

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
