Lessons of Merlin

In each of us there is another whom we do not know. They speak to us in dreams and tells us how differently things see us from the way we see ourselves~ G.C. Jung

Even as it is useless to think about infinity, so it is useless to worship the number of gods- least of all is it any use to worship the First God, the effective fullness and the highest good. Through our prayer we cannot take anything away from it because the effective emptiness swallows everything. ~ G.C. Jung

If you seek to understand the whole universe, you will understand nothing at all- but seek to understand yourself, and you will come to understand the whole universe.

Thus my patter of relationship to the world was already prefigured; as a child I felt myself to be alone, and today I am still solitary, because I know things and must hi8nt at things which other people do not know- and usually do not even want to know.~ G.C. Jung

Nature is the great teacher, and the best of mortal instructors but inept guides by comparison

When the student is ready, the teacher shall appear.

Soar beyond illusion!
The unwary soul who fails to grapple with the mocking Demon of Illusion, will return to the Earth as the Slave of Illusion.

To become a true master of fate
You must first became a “knower of self”,
When your can repose in comfort between the wings of your Dragon,
Which is no born nor dies throughout ages eternal,
Then will shadows forever vanish
Leaving that which within you knows… for it is
Knowledge not of fleeting lifetimes of illusion,
but of a real man that was, that is
And that will be again—
For whom the hour shall never strike.

It comes from thee for there is no book no appointed expert to read the scriptures on the wind. We have to seek them out in their old territory. To know them is an individual quest for there is no dwelling; they are too great to be contained. They are sunlight and moonshine that shines from the newly kindled fire within each one who walks in their ways. Their worship is joy and rejoicing, and rituals and freedom of the spirit, dancing in harmony with nature, life-long to a peaceful end. This is not an easy path to follow, those who set out upon the hidden ways need to desire that secret knowledge, long for it in their hearts, yearn for it in their souls, and be willing, in turn, to offer continuing personal dedication, commitment to love. Don’t scorn book learning, but don’t believe that it holds all the wisdom you need either. Do your best, and the gods will bless you. Nothing is gained for nothing.

Fear is a poor excuse for not doing the work, We are all afraid. It is nothing new. If you are alive, you are afraid.

All you are seeking is seeking you. If you be still it will find you. It has been waiting for you a long time. Once it is here, don’t move away. Rest. See what happens next.

Those who cannot howl will never find their pack.

Be wild; that is how to clear the river. In its original form, the river does not flow in pollution. We dirty it up. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom we have to allow creative loves to be let loose, to stream in, initially censoring nothing.
