(writing by me) Transcending Thought

Creation is a thought of ours. Thinking is not a process that happens over a period of time. Time is also a creation of thought.

(video clip) Awakening the 4 Levels of the Heart

The human heart has four levels which we must each come to know inside ourselves if we are to awaken. Journeying through the heart's levels is the essence of our evolution, and it is the purpose of the Great Awakening of our time.

(article) Devil of the Astral Light: Eliphas Levi’s Baphomet - By Michael Osiris Snuffin

"The dread Baphomet henceforth, like all monstrous idols, enigmas of antique science and its dreams, is only an innocent and even pious hieroglyph.” 

"This agent... is precisely that which the adepts of the Middle Ages denominated the First Matter of the Great Work. The Gnostics represented it as the fiery body of the Holy Spirit; it was the object of adoration in the Secret Rites of the Sabbath and the Temple, under the hieroglyphic figure of Baphomet or the Androgyne of Mendes.” - Eliphas Levi

(article) The Mage's Guide to Adepthood - A guidebook for the solitary seeker - Aaron Leitch

If Knowledge is an ocean, than the search for it must be an abyss. Perhaps that's the key to the use of the Hebrew word "knowledge" to refer to the gate of the Abyss and the underworld.

Far from the times of the Dark Ages and the world before the printing press, this is the Information Age and the time of the Information Superhighway. One does not tend to get far in any subject matter without a vehicle of some kind, and this especially refers to the art which we still insist on referring to as "occult" (ie- hidden).
