“The man thought of the future. “‘As my servants are looking for Mother, if they come across someone who knows me, then from that spirit I can learn of who I once was. And with Mother’s further assistance, I can become fully real… Even if there’s something lacking, it doesn’t matter. I will cease to exist as I am now…only to be reborn as a ‘God’ to rule over every soul.’”

How much of the day are you aware  just basically aware of what life is presenting  rather than being lost in waking sleep, in being identified with whatever you’re doing, almost as if you didn’t exist? To what extent do you blindly drift from one form of comfort to another, from one daydream or fantasy to another, from one secure place to another, in order to avoid the anxious quiver of discomfort or insecurity? How much of your energy is used to fortify a particular self-image, or to simply please others in order to gain approval, instead of devoting your energy to living a genuine life?

— Ezra Bayda

My heart is a thousand years old

I am not like
other people.

When the sun begins to rise and the universe is silent, yet I remain awake staring at my computer screen while the rest of the world sleeps, this always seems to be the time that I feel most frightened and alone. Despite being somewhat aware of how illogical my thought processes become at these hours, I can’t help but dwell on the fact that I feel as if I am the only person on Earth who is conscious. It makes me feel uneasy and vulnerable, and I become anxious as an intense need to wake someone up builds within me, just for some kind of validation that everything is normal, that people outside of these walls are still breathing, and life continues in countries the other side of the globe. I watch my significant other sleep as panic and sadness swells within me, and the fact that it would be cruel to wake him at such an unholy hour only adds to my anxiety: comfort staring me right in the face, yet completely untouchable due to guilt.

So I sit, and I watch the sun rise through glances out my window in between refreshing pages on my computer obsessively, just to see signs of life through a blaring white screen, hoping desperately for a car to drive past or an alarm to go off. I feel like a prisoner, yet there is no reason, and there are no walls.

THE VIRGIN OF THE WORLD
HAVING thus spoken, Isis first pours out for Horos the sweet draught of immortality which souls receive from the Gods, and thus begins the most holy discourse. Heaven, crowned with stars, is placed above universal nature, O my son Horos, and nothing is wanting to it of that which constitutes the whole world. It is necessary, then, that all nature should be adorned and completed by that which is above her, for this Order could not proceed from below to above. The supremacy of the greater mysteries over the lesser is imperative. Celestial order reigns over terrestrial order, as being absolutely determined, and inaccessible to the idea of death. Wherefore, the things below lament, being filled with fear before the marvellous beauty and eternal permanence of the heavenly world. For, indeed, a spectacle worthy of contemplation and desire were these magnificences of heaven, revelations of the God as yet unknown, and this sumptuous majesty of night illumined with a penetrating radiance, albeit less than that of the sun, and all these other mysteries which move above in harmonious cadence, ruling and maintaining the things below by secret influences. And so long as the Universal Architect refrained from putting an end to this incessant fear, to these anxious investigations, ignorance enveloped the universe. But when He judged good to reveal Himself to the world, He breathed into the Gods the enthusiasm of love, and poured into their mind the splendour which His bosom contained, that they might first be inspired with the will to seek, next with the desire to find, and lastly with the power to readjust.
Now, my wondrous child Horos, all this could not happen among mortals, for as yet they did not exist; but it took place in the universal Soul in sympathy with the mysteries of heaven. This was Hermes, the Kosmic Thought. He beheld the universe of things, and having seen, he understood, and having understood, he had the power to manifest and to reveal. That which he thought, he wrote; that which he wrote, he in great part concealed, wisely silent. and speaking by turns, so that while the world should last, these things might be sought. And thus, having enjoined upon the Gods, his brethren, that they should follow in his train, he ascended to the stars.
