Into the Infinite
ponder in a busy world
The Teachings of Orlando
The destruction of
faith is the beginning of evolution.
The double is the manifestation
of what you desire - not only what you desire as a lover, friend
and companion, but what you desire of yourself - the
manifestation of your own highest potential. The double is what
you need him to be. More than that, as the double is developed
through long-term intent, he becomes the force that stands at
your back, whispering in your ear all the ingredients that are
necessary for his creation.
This is where the mortal and the double swear a sacred
pact, which can never broken if both are to survive into the
infinite. For this is when the double takes his first breath and
becomes the I-Am in eternity. This is where the egg divides in
an evolutionary mitosis so that it will be always driven to come
together again, recreating in eternity what was begun within the
You have to be
before you will know how to become immortal.
The Quantum Nature
I am always here even when no
evidence of me is seen. I watch from the spider's eye and listen
with the raven's ears. I speak in your dreams even if you don't
remember, and caress your face with raindrop fingers and
windtongue. Sometimes you will call me Orlando, other times a
passing dust-devil, but however you perceive me, I am always
with you, and always have been - as long as you are
dreaming me so that I am sufficiently Whole to dream you into
being so that you might dream me into infinity. This is
the quantum nature of god as self and self as god, yes?
The core of your beliefs determines the realities you *see*
and obliterates those you choose to ignore.
Dependencies & the Eagle
Close your eyes. Imagine it is
your last night on earth, and in an hour you will die. What
stops you? What are you afraid of leaving behind? Most of all,
why are you afraid of leaving this? It is time to define
these things and begin unhooking the eagle's talons from your
soul. The sand has almost run out of the hour glass and the man
behind the curtain is growing impatient.
When you lose the first attention dependency, you are then freed
to access second and third attention experience. You cannot fly
when you are chained to a tree, or if you do, you will break
your wings trying to carry the tree with you. And then you will
die in the fall, your wings just tattered silk feathers shredded
by stubborn clinging to stubbornness itself.
It is not necessary to perceive a petty
tyrant as an enemy, for that implies a battle, a conflict. All
that is necessary is to let go of your end of the rope. The
tyrant will fall on her ass, yes?
The Heart of the Double
There is an energy in magic that has no name. The closest words
can come to describing it is a soul-deep pain, not unlike the
longing for the stars you felt as children. It is that energy,
when carefully directed, that fuels the heart of the double and
causes it to begin to beat. First just a single drum in the
night, a long, single beat. Then a little faster as the ache
inside you grows over the years. The danger faced by both the
double and the mortal self is simply that if the ache dies, the
heart of the twin can cease to beat. It is the hurt that will
make you hunt a cure. But if you let the hurt die because you
are afraid of never being able to soothe the ache, what really
dies is yourself, yes?
You must *see* the nature of this illusory existence
before you can stop participating in it.
What is the Eagle?
eagle is the black gravity that consumes awareness because it is
its nature to do so. That is its function, just as it is the
function of the sun to govern the weather and the moon to govern
the tides. The eagle regulates awareness, and only that
awareness which has achieved a sufficient level of cohesion can
withstand the force of the eagle's gravity. Put another way, the
eagle is the creator of the illusion, and it is the illusion
itself. Only those who can realize that the gravity itself is
also illusion will be able to break free of it. Otherwise, those
that cannot break free are obliterated. That obliteration is
If you are not lucid when consciousness and physicality part
ways, that gravity draws awareness up to the eagle's beak, and
there it is devoured, cast asunder, obliterated entirely. It is
only if lucidity can be found before the force of that gravity
feeds you to the eagle that you will have the opportunity to
truly inhabit eternity as the total Wholeness of all previous
evolutions. That Wholeness might be defined as the totality of
Most people prefer to have their
best friend and their most dangerous adversary in two separate
bodies. The Nagual is both, in a single entity.
The Sorcerer & the Ordinary Man
It is easier
for a sorcerer to perform the chores of an ordinary man than it
is for an ordinary man to comprehend the ways of the sorcerer.
You are skating on the edge of two different worlds, which are
nonetheless the same world, the only world. The trick is
learning to See that,
and to be neither the sorcerer nor the ordinary man, but the
cohesive I-Am which is both.
When the two become one, there is no longer any sense of urgency
or conflict, for then you will always be doing sorcery even in
ordinary actions, and ordinary acts will become enhanced with
magic, and only then will you start to remember that it isn't
the destination that matters nearly as much as the manner in
which you travel that long dirt road on the outskirts of time,
foundation of this journey must be the knowledge that it is possible
to transcend the presently perceived limits of human 'nature'.
Evolution is the Will to Do it, based on that knowledge.
Magic, Logic & Will
secret of magick is that there is nothing magickal about it, for
it is only the manipulation of matter and energy through the
means of the manifested will. Yet because you've been programmed
to see it as mysterious and to subliminally fear its
consequences, you truly can't see that it is a natural function
of your humanness, the unnamed thing you call upon to Do what
has never been done but
be done in order to make your desires complete.
You cannot see a mortal breath yet you can
witness its effects on dandelions scattered on the wind of a
wish, and so it is with the will, the invisible but tangible
breath of your desire acting upon the physical world. Ah, but
the sorcerer's trick is this: you have to believe it in order to
see it, and before you can believe it you need a reason.
Love is the fifth element which moves effortlessly between the
worlds and literally manifests for the Spirit a road to travel when
it is your own time to face the eagle.
Love is the reason.
