The Mystics' Rede
11-9-19 e.v.


"There are purse-proud penniless ones that stand at the door of the tavern and prate of their feats of wine-bibbing."

The average person is dreaming and they don't even know it.

"These are fools that men adore; both their Gods & their men are fools."

"There are purse-proud penniless ones that stand at the door of the tavern and revile the guests."

The Initiate only becomes aware of the idea that they are dreaming, but is as yet without the practical know-how to rectify that.

"Little by little, as your eyes grow stronger, will we unveil to you the ineffable glory of the Path of the Adepts, and its nameless goal."

"The guests dally upon couches of mother-of-pearl in the garden; the noise of the foolish men is hidden from them."

The Adept wakes up from the dream, only to fall back into its gravity most of the time. (They are as one who every now and then realizes with sufficient clarity that they're dreaming, and this momentarily wakes them up.)

"And in all shalt thou create the Infinite Bliss, and the next link of the Infinite Chain. This chain reaches from Eternity to Eternity, ever in triangles— is not my symbol a triangle?— ever in circles— is not the symbol of the Beloved a circle? Therein is all progress base illusion, for every circle is alike and every triangle alike! But the progress is progress, and progress is rapture, constant, dazzling, showers of light, waves of dew, flames of the hair of the Great Goddess, flowers of the roses that are about her neck, Amen!"

"Only the inn-keeper feareth lest the favour of the king be withdrawn from him."

The High Adept is awake and never again is fooled by the lure of the dream. (These are lucid dreamers when they choose to dream.)

"And all these things fled away, for he understood them all, that they were but as old rags upon the Divine Perfection."

The Veil of Paroketh is like a tremendous mirror. The pre-Adept looks towards the divine, only to see themselves; i.e. their Ego selves, or, more specifically, the knowledge to which that is attached. This is why the passing of the veil or barrier is accomplished in silent concentration. By "silent" is not meant silence of speech, but also silence of the thoughts, beliefs, feelings, ideas, etc. working their way through the mind.

Utterly bereft of expectation the aspirant must make of themselves an offering of silent concentration. This is not the result, it is the method. Another name for the Veil of P. is Conditioning, that of body and mind.
