Treatise on Energy I

Energy flows one way in nature – from east to west. one must become aligned with the natural flow if one is to become the highest that one, indefinitely, is. Within all humankind there is a natural tendency toward the divine, for being of the divine, we yearn to return from whence we have come. It is a natural truth that, being so hidden and now mostly forgotten, is feared by most who now dwell hither. Ere the coming of the new ages of this world, The Ancient Ones beheld the movement of energy in great awe, but they were not afraid of it and knew that it, the energy, underlying all things was there too for them to make use of. This knowledge and understanding has been lost largely within the spheres of all the cultures of this world. Even to those few to whom this arcanum is now held, they possess not the wisdom of begetting their true forms – of utilising this energy, and many who know not of it or understand it not, must receive the effects of its wrath in accordance with the Foundational Law of Balance.

The Law of Balance dictates that all change in the universe must interact such that it minimises effects – change must, like energy its begetter, flow and meet little or no resistance. It also means that, all things in the universe must change in such away that the totality of the universe’s energy remain balanced. This is why universal changes take a long time to happen, though the effects be great; but man, in haste and in fear for his mortality, delves into immediate use and destroys and cultivates, imbibes and imbues. For every positive that exists, there must be a negative. It is for this reason, that The Ancient Ones, the Great Teachers of the world, taught that balancing energy was more important than doing good things. Doing what is right is more important than doing what is good. Indeed, this is still true even though the terms “right” and “good” have become jumbled and are now regarded as identical in meaning. However, to do what is right, means that when the action is complete, it flows into the direction of the universal energy flow and as such, minimises latent effects in the total energy system of the universe. In other words, doing what is right means that the “Domino Effect” no longer has weighting on the actions or inactions of the universe.

All things in nature mirror this effect – that in change, they naturally flow in the manner of least resistance. This is most easily observed with water, that does not allow obstacles to impede its flow, but gracefully meanders around it or carves a new path – whichever possesses the least resistance. However, the “Domino Effect” accumulates Karmic Energy that would seek to balance all action and inaction in the universe. It is a stringent two-fold rule that alternates in waves creating negative and positive reactions in its wake.

That which is right takes upon itself its own action, like a river flows into the ocean taking with it naught but itself. This flow carries one to the Divine Realm. What is called “good” is defined by man based on what he has learned and on what he has been told, but only that which is right is ordained by God and can carry one to the realisation of Immortality in the Kingdom of the Divine One.

Love

‘Love is always patient and kind;
Love is never jealous;
Love is not boastful or conceited,
It is never rude and never seeks its own advantage,
It does not take offence or store up grievances.
Love does not rejoice at wrong doing,
But finds its joy in the truth.
It is always ready to make allowances,
To trust, to hope,
And to endure whatever comes.’

– 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, The Holy Bible

_____________________________________________________________________________

‘When love beckons to you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth. Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.
But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure,
Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, I am in the heart of God.”
And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.’

– Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

‘Love is the first born, loftier than the Gods, the Fathers and men. You O Love, are the eldest of all, altogether mighty. To you we pay homage! In many forms of goodness, O Love, you show your face. Grant that these forms may penetrate our hearts.’

Truth is like unto the Sun…

Truth is like unto the Sun:
Ever blazing as a furnace that melts all things;
An ember that does not die;
A flame inextinguishable;
A light so bright!
Brilliant is its standing
Brilliant is its shadow
Brilliant its rays.
Nothing standing in the path of Truth is darkened
For the Truth shines on all things
But with backs turned to it
We may thus, ignore it;
Pretend we do not feel its rays
Its intense heat beating down upon us
Seeking our attention – calling to us
Yea, even as we ignore it
We see its luminescence before us
and that too – but the light minimal in our faces –
We pretend we do not see
But it waits for us to turn
To gaze upon its face
That we may only be true to ourselves
And see the Sun shining within
For what good is a man who is true in all things
But is not true in himself?
How can such a man exist?
For as the Sun shines and its heat penetrates
So do the rays of Truth
That to know it, begins inwardly.

At night we are gladdened
For no longer need we hide from Truth
It has fallen beneath the waves;
The tides of Illusion and Deceit supersede it
But the Moon rises, and Wisdom is like unto it
For it sits in the sky incandescent –
Not brilliant as the Sun which we force ourselves to ignore.
And the Moon looks down upon us
Not commanding our attention
But peacefully awaiting our side glances
Yet, not always is it there in fullness
And not always is it there at all
For it turns not, but may also show not
And one face is ever dark
For who may know all of Wisdom?
And yet another face shine…
Is not Wisdom is a two-faced wretch:
Pleasing and fecundate like honey
But more bitter than bitterest gall?

And we would not see Wisdom
If it were not for Truth:
Truth shines its benevolent rays that we may witness Wisdom
For True Knowledge is Truth;
And Truth is it
And it directs us to Wisdom.
Together they are Wisdom and Truth
As the Moon and the Sun
As the Electrum of the Gods
Side-by-side they await
The glory of our realisation
Of our awakening
They remain to call us – to aid us
Waiting for us to hearken to them
For, however shall we find God
If Wisdom and Truth, his Vassals, we do not embrace?
Nay! His offspring!
One cannot adore the Father and not his Sons and Daughters
For that man is thus false
And in the eyes of the Father, a darkened man.

The Wiseman knows Truth and he shines forth like the Sun
But his Wisdom is as hidden and softly glowing as the Moon
Thus, be like the Sun and the Moon
That this world, we may depart….
