Raven of Thought Flies
The Fiddler plays
On the Moonlights path
The Memory stays
fear for Thought, that he come not back,
But I fear yet more for Memory."
So said Odin
and Memory are the mind of the Witch,
as it is propelled into "astral" experience.
Which is how Odin traveled the world,
not as the tales speak of two poor birds
however magical, flying about the entire world
but his own mind making the trip
on the Astral plane.
the abyss, the plane where the individual mind
and Cosmic Consciousness, or between life and death.
The plane that the Witch must cross on their own."
path between the Nine worlds of the Yggdrasil or the Cabala,
combined with the magic of Seidhr, of Freya's fame,
is the way of Astral travel.
there are those who might ask, why bother to do
this kind of travel at all..? Good question :)
Here's my answer to it.
are in the Universe (macrocosm)
and we are the Universe. (microcosm)
Astral is as much our home as the Earth on which we stand,
and much is to be learned there that cannot be found anywhere else.
records, the other selves in times past..
time is not as we experience it on this plane, linear, its a mobeus strip
that has no beginning and no end, but moves forever.
the Astral plane we can stand as the true self,
the inner self, the self that has lived many lives,
and has ,no gender, no age, no limits.
Witch must understand that he lives on Earth,
and that is only through material reality that he can operate.
The pentacle reminds him that philosophy
and abstract principles are useless
without the body (and the will that moves it *)."
"Though she understands and honors tradition,
the Sage creates his own rituals and observances,
tailored to his own needs."
She does not serve established orders
There is no religion higher than truth.
I have said before, it is the Will
that matters, not the words, tools, colors,
or given rite, or even directions.
guardians are very forgiving
and I bet they laugh when they hear me Call...
I am honored to provide them with amusement.. :)
the Witch, the Self and the World are the same thing. When we try to separate
we get the errors of Science/Religion. "
are the world and the world is us. Science is great,
but flawed in that we don't know enough to say we "know" anything,
as any science "Fact" is subject to change at any given moment that we learn something new.
Religion is much the same, we cannot "Know" the ways of a given God for a 100% certainity,
so to build a formatted religion around such "knowledge" is vanity at best.
is the flaw of logic. Premises are the rock upon which logic is based.
They are not themselves subject to logical proof, however,
which means they can be flawed and incorrect. "
tells us even our thought is suspect,
without rigorous soul searching,
self exploration and study, ( which is why your here right.. :)
as our premise upon which we base
our logic and therefore thought, must be correct.
Or we delude ourselves.
he was more than willing to do
To learn this simple information,
true knowledge based on a sound premise
has a value beyond price.
within the self can we find this truth.
you who seek to know Me,
know that your seeking and yearning
will avail you naught,
unless you know the Mystery:
for if that which you seek,
you find not within yourself,
you will never find it without.
how do we "know" our truth is real ?
We are adults, of sound mind ( we hope :) and spirit,
do we really need ANY corroboration to feel if something is right?
Do we really need to be told by some moth eaten scroll,
in order to belive that something is a fact?
Because someone in authority or some book tells us
that such and such, is thus and so,
do we believe it..? I think not
How much less time effort and thought should we give
for what we call the "truth" of all truths ?
Our ability to believe in something beyond the here and now,
to walk the planes and see for ourselves what we once knew, are our "truth"
are suspect, even mine.. :)
I do not ask that you believe me. I ask that you go and prove to
yourself that the way is real, that it works, that its right for you,
hunt the world above and below,
seek out the inner-most parts of your own heart and soul
and find a truth that works,for you
Blessed Be your search...
