do not let your own imperturbable mind be troubled by pain

 

and do not reject a just pleasure

 

persist in it without attachment

 

- craving does ill and aversion does ill

 

and there is a middle way by which to avoid craving and by which to avoid aversion

 

a way which gives sight and vision

 

which conduces to calm

 

which leads to clear vision

desire

 

 - formed only because of a preoccupation of the mind

 

that

 

in turn

 

is established only if there is present something which we may call an obsession

 

a possession

 

(papanca-sanna)

 

banish the inclination

 

then witness the sight that pained you before with calm and indifference

 

what if I were to abandon this favoring

 

- in the same spirit as you might say

 

why do I run

 

what if I were to walk calmly instead

 

- but why am I walking

 

I wish to stand still...

thought does not like being watched

 

does not like being seen

 

this irrational and parasitical development of thought takes up a large part of our normal psychic life

 

and produces corresponding areas of reduced activity and of reduced self-presence

 

the state of passivity is accentuated when our thought is no longer merely "spontaneous" and when the mind is agitated by some emotion

 

some worry

 

hope

cathartic development of consolidation

 

"sidirealization" of one's own energies

 

leads to the limit of individual consciousness

 

(includes the virtual possibility of self-identification with being that is

 

with the theistically conceived divinity

one passes into>>>)

 

the realm of panna

dehumanized energy

according to an initiatic axiom

 

you must not seek power

 

it is power that must seek you

 

in our tradition power is feminine and seeks a center

 

he who knows how to give a center to this power through his own renunciation and hardness created by domination of his soul

 

by isolation and resistance

 

power is unfailingly attracted to such a person and obeys him as her own male

 

being is the condition of power

 

an impassibility that does not look at it

 

is what attracts it

 

power eludes desire for power

 

like a woman shunning the lustful embrace of an impotent lover

some general principles recommended for practice of initiatic disciplines

 

1. desire

 

hope

 

expectations

 

inexorably lead away from results

 

2. all of the esoteric exercises are fruitful only when they are loved and willed for their own sake

 

almost as if they had a purpose in and of themselves

 

3. the persistent lack of results even after constant and serious efforts may be just a test

 

4. to find all of this natural is already a result

he only cares to make some things occur

 

he calmly and coolly establishes the means and the conditions

 

he acts

 

and that is all

 

he does not adhere to his action as if it were his own

 

above all he does not talk about it

 

nor does he care about the outcome

 

the action is a mere instrument

 

he is immune from the mania of "self-affirmation"

being a slave of "necessity"

 

(ananke)

 

man is passively led by the "current"

 

according to a law that the initiate attempts to break

 

therefore

 

he needs to fix the power of his human soul

 

to suspend it and to keep it firmly under control

 

through the higher power he has received

 

- only then the bond will be removed

 

through the change of state

 

his "anguish" will dissolve

 

the self will breathe the "cosmic air" that is the ether of liberty and liberation

 

a being-in-no-place

 

and a freshness made of immaterial activity

 

this "cosmic air" is the "ether of life" or "ether of the living" echoing in a spiritual form of sound

all cultures can be divided into two main types

spirit

         - victorious & creative presence in the world of that which is not of this world

 

 

 

     2/ "modern culture" (2)

 

rationalism

 

individualism

 

         - the individual degenerates when he uses his fundamental freedom to deny the spirit

 

and to exist only for himself

 

         - the organism looses its unity as the metaphysical tension gives way

(1) the axis of these cultures

the summit of their hierarchical order consists of metaphysical

 

super-individual powers & actions that serve to inform and justify everything that is merely human

 

temporal

 

subject to becoming

to "history"

 

world-view which had at its center the memory of a process of degeneration

 

slow obscuration

 

or collapse of a higher preceding world

 

(2) anti-tradition

unalterable axis

way of acting directly on its subordinates through "presence"

different from

humanistic spirit

 

individualistic way of thinking

 

dualistic conception of culture & the state
