”To all that is chaotic in you…”

“To all that is chaotic in youlet there come silence.

Let there be a calming of the clamoring,
a stilling of the voices that have laid their claim on you,
that have made their home in you,

that go with you even to the holy places but will not let you rest,
will not let you hear your life with wholeness or feel the grace that fashioned you.

Let what distracts you cease.
Let what divides you cease.
Let there come an end to what diminishes and demeans,
and let depart all that keeps you in its cage.

Let there be an opening into the quiet that lies beneath the chaos,
where you find the peace you did not think possible and see what shimmers within the storm.”

—John O’Donohue, from “To Bless the Space Between Us”

“If you will think of ourselves as coming out of the earth, rather than having been thrown in here from somewhere else, you see that we are the earth, we are the consciousness of the earth. These are the eyes of the Earth. And this is the voice of the earth.”

Joseph Campbell

“The 13 Wiccan Principles”

1622839_685665754788819_154440248_n

 

“The 13 Wiccan Principles”

The following set of thirteen principles was adopted by the Council of American Witches, in April, 1974.

— We practice rites to attune ourselves with the natural rhythm of life forces marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal Quarters and Cross Quarters.

— We recognize that our intelligence gives us a unique responsibility toward our environment. We seek to live in harmony with Nature, in ecological balance offering fulfillment and consciousness within an evolutionary concept.

— We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary it is sometimes called supernatural, but we see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to all.

— We conceive of the Creative Power in the universe as manifesting through polarity ~ as masculine and feminine ~ and that this same Creative Power lies in all people, and functions through the interaction of the masculine and feminine. We value neither above the other, knowing each to be supportive to each other. We value sex as pleasure, as the symbol and embodiment of life, and as one of the sources of energies used in magickal practice and religious worship.

— We recognize both outer worlds and inner, or psychological, worlds sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, Inner Planes, etc. ~ and we see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena and magickal exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment.

— We do not recognize any authoritarian hierarchy, but do honor those who teach, respect those who share their greater knowledge and wisdom, and acknowledge those who have courageously given of themselves in leadership.

— We see religion, magick, and wisdom in living as being united in the way one views the world and lives within it ~a world view and philosophy of life which we identify as Witchcraft.

— Calling oneself “Witch” does not make a Witch – but neither does heredity itself, not the collecting of titles, degrees, and initiations. A Witch seeks to control the forces within her/himself that make life possible in order to live wisely and well without harm to others and in harmony with Nature.

— We believe in the affirmation and fulfillment of life in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness giving meaning to the Universe we know and our personal role within it.

— Our only animosity towards Christianity, or towards any other religion or philosophy of life, is to the extent that its institutions have claimed to be “the only way”, and have sought to deny freedom to others and to suppress other ways of religious practice and belief.

— As American {Or World-Wide!} Witches, we are not threatened by debates on the history of the Craft, the origins of various terms, the legitimacy of various aspects of different traditions. We are concerned with our present and our future.

— We do not accept the concept of absolute evil, nor do we worship any entity known as Satan or the Devil, as defined by the Christian tradition. We do not seek power through the sufferings of others, nor accept that personal benefit can be derived only by denial to another.

— We believe that we should seek within Nature that which is contributory to our health and well-being….”

“If water derives lucidity

“If water derives lucidity from stillness,
how much more the faculties of the mind.
The mind of the sage, being in repose,
becomes the mirror of the universe,
a reflection of all creation.”

“Flow with whatever may happen, and let your mind be free: Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.”

“A path is made by walking on it.”

“Forget the years, forget distinctions. Leap into the boundless and make it your home!”

‘The Shaman as Poet of Consciousness’

‘The Shaman as Poet of Consciousness’

‘…Our earliest poets were shamans. Today as in the earliest times, true shamans are poets of consciousness who know the power of song and story to teach and to heal. They understand that through the play of words, sung or spoken, the magic of the Real World comes dancing into the surface world. The right words open pathways between the worlds. The poetry of consciousness delights the spirits. It draws the gods and goddesses who wish to live through us closer.

Shamans use poetry, sung or spoken, to achieve ends that go deeper than our consensual world. They create poetic songs of power to invoke spiritual help; to journey into nonordinary reality; to open and maintain a space between the worlds where interaction between humans and multidimensional beings can take place and to bring energy and healing through to the body and the physical world….’

As a side and personal note, regarding the title of the art, I don’t see the same thing the artist does when he created his art…as a master of beasts, I instead see the spirit and energy of one who walks with them, side by side and connected…

‘Consciousness & Dimensions: Science Begins it’s Dance with Spirituality’

10014633_721485271206867_1150940040522517293_n
This has been a rather strong preoccupation of mine for years. Though there is no real “scientific basis” for it, I like the possibilities and suggestions from this article. What do you think about it?
‘Consciousness & Dimensions: Science Begins it’s Dance with Spirituality’“Consciousness & Dimensions:Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Vernon Neppe and physicist Dr. Edward Close discussed their work integrating science and consciousness studies, and their most recent breakthrough, positing that we live in a 9-dimensional spinning reality. While human experience is restricted to the first four dimensions, the additional hidden dimensions could provide keys to life as we know it, and explain some of the mysteries of science, they contended.

There has been a standstill in finding the link between science and consciousness, and their new theory connects them, said Close. Among the nine finite dimensions, there are three that encompass consciousness, Neppe stated, adding that their theory was mathematically sound, and helped solve certain physics conundrums like the Cabibbo angle. Each dimension is embedded within the next higher dimension, “and everything begins to have meaning when you have a science that can explain things like UFOs, time travel, out-of-body experiences, and psychic phenomena,” said Close. Another component of these higher dimensions is the transcendence of self, Neppe commented.

The two also spoke about their research into the phenomenon of deja vu, and how in certain incidents, one knows what a person is going to say before they say it. Deja vu could be a kind of time distortion or a type of psychic awareness, Neppe offered, while Close noted that time isn’t something that always flows in one direction at the same rate.”

Akashic Records

1966886_706121826076545_667919470_n

 

‘Akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning “sky”, “space” or “aether” and is described as containing all knowledge of human experience and all experiences as well as the history of the cosmos encoded or written in the very aether or fabric of all existence.

It is derived from Hindu philosophy of Samkhya as well as ancient Tibetan scrolls and Buddhist writings. It is promulgated in the Samkhya philosophy that the Akashic records are automatically recorded in the elements of akasha one of the five types of elements visualized as existing in the elemental theory of Ancient India, called Mahabhuta which is not a religious book but colorfully historical stories across millions of years from a period of prehistory and pregenesis (a esoteric biblical dogma) period of a long dead advance civilizations due to war and other calamity.’

Notes from the artist: ‘Akasha is the first material element created from the astral world before Air, Fire, Water, Earth (Hinduism religion).’
