The Moon Is....100% Full

That's the good thing about the moon. No, it's not moooooooooo, it's just moon. U know?

In John Lamb Lash's book, "Not In His Image; Gnostic Vision, Sacred Ecology, And The Future Of Belief", on page 336 and 337 it says:

     "Science fiction writer Philip K. Dick said that Gnosis consists of "disinhibiting instructions" that allow us to access a vast store of innate, intuitive knowing. What I propose to call silent knowing is a state of rapturous attention to the presence of the Earth. This is the eloquent muteness of being awed. The testimony of people who have experienced a spontaneous upsurge of silent knowing can teach us a lot about communication with Gaia. One such testimony comes from the Irish mystic, writer and painter known as AE. George William Russell (1867-1935), who wrote under the pen name AE, asserted that "the immortal in us has memory of all its wisdom." In a simple yet far-reaching analysis of his own mystical experience, Russell connected the immortal wisdom-bearing memory with the faculty of imagination. "This memory of the spirit is the real basis of imagination, and when it speaks to us, we feel truly inspired, and a mightier creature than ourselves speaks through us."

     Page 338: "AE was an exceptional mystic in that his clairvoyant faculties did not operate by blind "channeling," as occurred say, with the "sleeping prophet" Edgar Cayce, and Jayne Roberts, the famous medium who produced the Seth material. His observation that the strict dualism of good and evil locks human awareness into a cognitive setting that cannot accept beauty, or "go with the flow" of nature's perpetual revelation, is a genuine Gnostic insight, and merits deep reflection.

     Russell's visions were entirely body-based, somatically grounded, and all that he saw was as alive as himself. "That Infinite we would enter is living," he testifies. As the visions come on, he felt "a growing luminousness in my brain as if I had unsealed in the body a fountain of interior light." The invocation of a fountain of light occurs in several revelation discourses in the NHC, as we have seen. AE's candle is a humble metaphor for the soft flow of the Organic Light. The candle burns for us all. "In every mind exists the Supernal Light of the ineffable Mystery" (The Second Treatise of the Great Seth, 67.10)."

Out of all the walks of life, I'd say this is a nice walk in the right direction. To have a fountain of interior light flowing through you. Let's see some of the worldly walks.....
