Who is the operator in the work of regeneration? What is truth?

The truth is that which is not polluted, which has no limit, no colour, no form, is motionless, naked, shining, which can only be apprehended by itself, the unalterable Good, the Incorporeal. It cannot be perceived by the senses and can only be known by the effects of its power and energy, which demands that a person must be capable of understanding birth in God.

Draw it to yourself, and it will come. Wish it, and it will be produced. Arrest the activity of the bodily senses and the divinity will be born in him. Purify yourself from the irrational punishments of matter. Terrible and numerous are these "punishments", and the chief of them are twelve in number, namely:

Ignorance, Sadness, Incontinence, Concupiscence, Injustice, Cupidity, Deceit, Envy, Fraud, Anger, Precipitation, Malice.

These are the punishments which, through his imprisonment in the body, force the interior-man to suffer through the senses.

(Fances A. Yates, Giordano Bruno & the Hermetic Tradition)


"If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present."
- Ludwig Wittgenstein

"Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed."
- Terence McKenna

That ghost whisperer knows how to ruin a good time!
