15 November (Nuit) Liber CCXX, 1:10-11

Postby Jim Eshelman » Tue Nov 15, 2011 5:40 am

10. Let my servants be few & secret: they shall rule the many & the known.
11. These are fools that men adore; both their Gods & their men are fools.

Today's meditation "clicked" for me in a very different way than before... :shock:

Much less "secret societies ruling the world from the shadows" silliness.

"Strive to remain secret rather than to become another one of those publically deified fools that people worship and/or kill. You'll rule in spite of your secrecy."

Yes, that's the perspective I used to have on the verse; something akin to "I want to be Nuit's servant, and therefore I must be secret and rule the many" or something.

This morning, I am asking myself, "what rules me?"

Oh... I see.

Mine was kind of like, "See..., we already tried the Jesus, Buddha, Mohamed-thing... Old paradigm."

I take this as an explanation that the path inward is taken by few and since it is inward it is also secret (set apart from the rest of the world). I have had very few experiences that I would consider genuine "religious" experiences, for lack of a better way of describing it right now, and I feel these have guided my life. They have ruled the many and the known aspects of my daily life. "The fools that men adore" I take to mean the aspects of my daily life that are adored as goals to strive after, but which are removed from this inward path. I'm sure there is a very different perspective there, and following Jim's lead, verse 11 is a Kether verse with the path of Aleph, the Fool, leading from it. That is definately something that I need further meditation on though.
