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.

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.
