[poem]Fresh Blood

Postby Hermitas » Thu May 16, 2019 6:37 am

What once was
is
Done and gone.

Was it right,
or
Was it wrong?

Silent here
for
Far too long.

Come and play,
and
Bang your gong.

Argue you,
or
Sing along.

Come and learn.
Come and teach.
Grasp the grape
Within your reach.

What thou wilt
is
All the Law.

Come.
They come.
Come.
They come.

Applause to
thunderous applause.
The crowd

and roars with joy,
glad
they came.

Peerless Silence is samadhi. ;)

I liked it, for what that's worth, buddy.
"And they that read the book and debated thereon passed into the desolate land of Barren Words. And they that sealed up the book into their blood were the chosen of Adonai, and the Thought of Adonai was a Word and a Deed; and they abode in the Land that the far-off travellers call Naught."

:angel:

:D

:booze:

Gimmie those grapes

Dead and gone?
Bang a gong?
Sing a song?
Silent too long?
What is wrong?

What is right
To those who fight
To shine the light
Giving sight
Will is might

Might I see
With clarity
All that be
In the Tree
Enfleshed in me

Fresh blood flows
In those that know
The wind will blow
So below
Love is the Law.

“Argue not.”

As much as there is scandalously violent imagery and admonition in the Law, the part I actually have the most problem with is “argue not.”

I forget it’s there. My mind scans over it and ignores it.

I met a Thelemite in a magick shop the other day. The conversation turned interesting, and I wanted to refer to the Law. The shop owner jokingly said, “now you guys don’t get into an argument over this...” And without missing a beat, the man said, “oh, we don’t argue.”

It came so fast and naturally. It was surprising.

It seems foreign to my nature. I made a mental note of it.

Interesting.

Interesting.
