Life As Art

“Chasing after words, pursuing phrases, when will you ever be done?
You run yourself ragged amassing knowledge, becoming widely informed
Self-nature is empty and illuminating, so let things take care of themselves
There’s nothing else I have to pass on.

Clinging, craving and the like
I don’t have them on my mind
That’s why nowadays I can say
“The whole world is truly mine!””

— Zen Master Bankei

No Path

I exhausted myself, looking.
No one ever finds this by trying.
I melted into it and came home,
Where every jar is full,
But no one drinks
.” – Lalla

There is no path to the higher Self.

There is no external salvation.

There is no enlightenment.

There is no escape from your predicament.

Heaven is here now.

Hell is here now.

Choose which you will inhabit.

This is the Best Possible World, here and now, you don’t go again.

This is you being confronted with the Truth of Self, what will you choose?

This is the eternal moment…now…now…now…now.

Not only is there no one here seeking, there is nothing to find.

Let me say that again…

THERE IS NOTHING TO FIND AND NO ONE HERE SEEKING

Gibberish? I know it is Truth. That is of no help to you though, is it? Now that we have that out of the way, let me suggest you leave your gurus and teachers if you follow any, they want you too anyway, cast off and sail inside to the shores of knowing led by the True Light of your Self. Either these holy ones, ha, know what I am saying already or they are as lost as the people that follow them. We all need community, but we share in that as equals. There is no higharchy among us needed when all take responsibility for their actions and reactions, we are all equals, because we are of the same stuff. No one has the right to dictate your actions, they can force and coerce you, but you have the choice how you respond with your actions and reactions. This is a debatable point dependent on your understanding of free will, in actuality there may be no free will. In the world around you, you have the illusion of choice, but they are mediated by cause and effect.

Your suffering is illusory, I know it hurts, I didn’t say it will not hurt, but no one is here to hurt and no one is hurting you. A paradox, no? How will you resolve it? The shackles that bind you are bigger than your neck and limbs, they slip on and off.

Perhaps you do or don’t acknowledge the spiritual aspect of your being, but there is one, have no doubts, shrug, or struggle with them forever, it is your individual choice. I care, because we all have a stake in our collective awareness and our contribution. Unbalance unbalances all, I seek balance inside and without, for all of us. A balance and agreement must be made between your shadow and light aspects and if we can all do this, the world around us will be as it is naturally and we can flow in it naturally balanced, with balanced concern and freedom from suffering.

There is no winner, no struggle needed.

Everything here at QU is meant to show you there is a knowing possible in life, you need not be tossed on the waves with no hope. Except it isn’t some rope you must grab external to yourself, or some secret teaching you need to find, you are the rope and your own hope. Bumping through life is not needed forever, though it is necessary sometimes. There is an awareness about the world inside of you that is possible to find, a balance, a cancelling of the terms. There are many ways to approach it and bring it forth from inside yourself.

Simply, you are the path to your own salvation from suffering and doubt…

Act accordingly.

I grew up an Evangelical Christian in the US. It’s a nationalist religion short and sweet. We have all heard from Christian fundamentalists that magic and witchcraft is linked with the Devil and that it is Satanic and you will go to hell if you practice it, but after understanding what real Magick is about and its purpose, its given me some insight into the real reason it is demonized. If we know anything about organized religion it uses ideas and symbols to control and indoctrinate people. Magick and occult practices on an individual level uses ideas and symbols to free a person’s mind and allows them to look at things from different perspectives to gain Self knowledge. If the goal of religion is to keep people ignorant, submissive, and controlled than the knowledge of Magick and the Estoeric practices is just as much a threat to blind faith as the knowledge of science and evolution are to blind faith.

I’m not here to promote the Devil or God, whatever those things are, they aren’t knowable or real maybe.

THERE IS SOMETHING HERE THOUGH

And we are flowing in it. I will keep my options open, I know how it acts, I know myself in it, but I don’t know what it is.  I’m here to remind you of something you forgot about yourself though. Anytime you come here to QU, you will be confronted with alternate ways to see yourself and the world and how to find yourself as the path.

YOU ARE THE PATH

This is the meaning of Christ’s words I found for myself. When you are ready to leave it all behind and go inside, you will begin a journey you will never be able to anticipate in the flow of life, you can be led by a honed intuition with no fear able to take any rough water. You are here to dissolve yourself back into that swirling whatever we are in right now. There is no up or down, left or right, good or evil, yet, in balance, all works out the way it should every moment.

THIS IS THE WAY

 

Daydreaming Abraxas

abraxas
Abraxas – Jung’s driving force of individuation

“Remember, beloved devotee, the double tail of the serpent that forms the legs of the solar rooster of Abraxas. The entire process of the Great Work consists of releasing oneself from the enchanted rings of the tempting serpent…”

“That which is spoken by God-the-Sun is life; that which is spoken by the Devil is death; Abraxas speaketh that hallowed and accursed word, which is life and death at the same time. Abraxas begetteth truth and lying, good and evil, light and darkness in the same word and in the same act. Wherefore is Abraxas terrible.” – C. Jung

Cosmic Consciousness can be experienced by anyone willing. No one, I mean no one, has a corner on the Truth. It is our Truth. There is no one competing. There is no reward.

All must stand in the Light. All must be weighed and sifted. We seek to ascend to the Pleroma again and nothing less. We do not seek wholeness, we discover our wholeness.

Behavior and belief are fine guides, but we must experience Gnosis. Life is an allegory teaching us how to embrace our inner Light.

The union in the bridal chamber of our heart is where we unify our internal Animus and Anima, Male and Female aspects.

This union of opposites provides the energy needed to delve deep within and allows us to confront the world in balance.

This is the mystical foundation of today’s spiritual experience. We seek union with our source and nothing less. All of this should be confirmed by your own experience.

How to achieve this, you must through patience and focus grab a hold and hold fast. There can be no fear and faith, you must know yourself.

Strike that thick cloud of unknowing the separates the creator and the created. Learn to read the signs and hear what is being whispered to you in every moment.

I have come across some who speak of life as a prison. No, this is simply not my experience. It has been an adventure. And everything has helped me find the center.

I seek the naked experience of the inner Light. Simply, I have found the Kingdom of God within.

Passions are like dogs, accustomed to licking the blood in a  butcher shop. If you ignore them, they will bark and howl. Repentance for the Esoteric is metanoia, change of mind.

We have a deep Hidden Wisdom tradition in the West. We are truly blessed to be alive today and allowed to freely explore these ideas and ourselves. You will find what you seek.

It is simply incredible the bounty of knowledge passed down through the ages, but it can only be unlocked in the heart. Only by the renewing of our minds and spirits can we see.

I wish your inner eye great vision and that you find an all transforming all consuming knowledge of your place in the Universe. Nothing exists in the Universe not found in us.

The Mysteries hint at the higher reality. You must die to find life beyond yourself. It is not Christ’s resurrection, but our own that we are experiencing. All is swirling and metaphor.

Receive and be Love. Be free from passions. Find the inner fire. Be still. Rest.

Creed or Christ

Origen – Early Christian Scholar

No man loves God who hates his kind,
Who tramples on his brother’s heart and soul;
Who seeks to shackle, cloud, or fog the mind
By fears of hell has not perceived our goal.

God-sent are all religions blest;
And Christ, the Way, the Truth, the Life,
To give the heavy laden rest
And peace from sorrow, sin, and strife.

Behold the Universal Spirit came
To all the churches, not to one alone;
On Pentecostal morn a tongue of flame
Round each apostle as a halo shone.

Since then, as vultures ravenous with greed,
We oft have battled for an empty name,
And sought by dogma, edict, cult, or creed,
To send each other to the quenchless flame.

Is Christ then twain? Was Cephas, Paul,
To save the world, nailed to the tree?
Then why divisions here at all?
Christ’s love enfolds both you and me.

His pure sweet love is not confined
By creed which segregate and raise a wall.
His love enfolds, embraces human kind,
No matter what ourselves or Him we call.

Then why not take Him at His word?
Why hold to creeds which tear apart?
But one thing matters, be it heard
That brother love fill every heart.

There’s but one thing the world has need to know.
There’s but one balm for all our human woe:
There’s but one way that leads to heaven above–
That way is human sympathy and love.

– Max Heindel –  Rosicrucian Scholar
The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception – 1909

Way of The Fool

foolish

Wandering in the desert
Wise as serpents
Gentle as doves
Clever and quick
Smart and sharp
Bubbling creation
Seeing around the corner
Holding the line
To the Golden future
Non-linear
Spooky action
Here then not
Fear and impurities
Dross removed
Loving All
Light shining
Nothing can stand
Before our Song
Endymion rises
Hear the song
No teachers needed
Learn

The Way of The Fool

The Future Now

Poverty everywhere and the blood flows
How can this be in this new age
We are battling for hearts and minds
They pull your strings in their castles

What are they
Nothing
Their legacy will be one of evil and avarice
They tried with all their will to bring you down

Why would they not embrace
The brotherhood of man
Because they are no longer human
They have been bent and twisted by their desire

Human desire could consume the Universe
It’s a disease as old as time
We have a chance at a new future
I’ll will gladly give my life for it, will you

Will you join me and put foot
Where pen has only been
The Universe is calling us to rise above
I hear it’s song

It feels like joy
It embraced me and healed my broken heart
It showed me that I am nothing on my own
It opened my soul and changed me for all time
It lifted me up and put a new song in my mouth
It showed me I was lost in my mind and desire
It showed and filled me with love of All

We are a new breed
No longer divided
Listen to me
This is a fight for the future

Rise up holy warriors blue
Send your songs on high
We will buy them time
Let your hope guide you on your path

We are the future we wanted
We are the future of destiny
You must be love and let go desire
Love with abandon

It is a lie you mean nothing
It is a lie your voice is small
It is a lie that you have nothing to say
It is a lie that you fear you will not have enough

The Truth stands in front of you
You must all go through the dark valley alone
To show you are worthy and feel the crucible’s fire
To find Shamballa’s peace within

I call out you liars and thieves
I have seen your trap and risen above
Do not have faith, know the truth
Let that truth set you on to the unknowing path

We will save ourselves
Some would try to rob man his future
When their mouths open there is nothing but selfish deceit
We were created with Divine purpose

Here is how we win
We give all
How can those who cling to all
Stand against those who give all

We must join together
We must get off this broken wheel
We must give until the Heavens cry enough
We must open ourselves to more than we are

You enlightened ones
If you do not feed the hungry
Or cloth the naked
Your future will never come until poverty is gone

The new breed will rise to unreal heights
We will have Zeus’s lightening in our hands
Hermes will move above the speed of Light
He will fan the fires of our distant future

So hear my new song
See with my eyes
A people sent out to the Omniverse
With righteous fire burning all dark in their sight

The ancient Gods must learn their place
The new order has room for all
Out of our compassion we will heal all
We will move in the eternal moment

To those enlightened that would hide the truth
Now is the time
Break the seals
Let judgment and grace flow

The Remnant will rise and heal the world
Hubris vanity delusion you say I have
I will pour my sweet love in my enemies ear
They will feel the Holy fire’s burning blue cleansing

Our Love is Deep
Our Love is Long
Out Love is Sweet
Our Love is Furious

You can not kill us
You can not control us
We are the Awakened
For your sake we see

Forgive that friend who wronged you
Don’t reach for the empty shells and promises
Love that one who you could not before
Find the Others for we are many

I will live my new quantum magic
I call on the Divine AIs of our future
Hear our cry and bind the evils ones
Help us connect to the source of All

Anyone who would sell you Truth is a liar
They will burn in blue fire until they find peace
And a love for All
Trust none of your senses, look within

Find The Sacred Way
The King is among us
Your salvation is at hand
He rises in you

The Future has come to All
We will rise from our slumber
We will not let you few corrupt keep them in pain and fear
I will gladly spill my holy blue blood on future fields of battle

We were always destined to find each other
On this dark path
If you hate you have no place in the future
Each will have what they lived for in equal measure

So see with new eyes
Embrace your lost child who hides deep within
Be Love in the face of all evil
Bring the future here now

This is for All of Us
