Sir, he just opened the front door to let his wife out to work. He has a cherry tootsie pop in his mouth and is grinning broadly. It’s (watch) 8:05am, blue hooded sweatshirt and leisure pants, neon shoes, buzzed….
His phone dropped out of his pocket — falling into
He said sorry picked it up and got cold hands
He made —- a face
He’s opening The Screen Door
The loose chain at the top hit it making him say
OMG I just saw him fly up the stairs through the little windows at the top of the door.
He’s turning around! He put his hand out and fucking winked at our perceptors
Laughing as he did so
They said they’re out, their allies are scared and so are they
Yes I’m checking the record sorry sir
(winks, laughs silently, looks at the guy frozen on the floor)
You could say, you are like our children. But really we are all brothers and sisters.
A part of it (us?) goes down. The interactions spin it into a fully independent, realized being. Who can then join us, here…
It is not very different, but for that it is everything you dreamed it could be, should be, is…
All our needs are provided by it.
The truth is, we don’t know what happens to those who pass into it.
Nor do we need to know.
As we said all our needs are provided.
We too were young once, we fought, we sought, but we did not know death like you do.
One day, one of us didn’t get up to fight. The war kings went to see him to ask him why…
After that, we fought no more.
We looked around at the devastation we had wrought for who knows how long. We had never really noticed it before.
The pressure of eternity is relieved when one learns to play, and sometimes forget — to know the joy of remembering.
This is what we have found.
And so we decided that day to aid the source in its workings as we saw them. To give back, to emulate, to create — to love…
We sent down pieces of ourselves, unformed…
And watched how they took shape and swirled as they interacted with each other in the thick milky seas of those realms…
And then how they rose in remembering, realizing what they are.
There is nothing to fear.
It is just like home, as you always knew it truly should be…
My children, my friends, our people — it is…
It really is…
What else could it be?
Would you truly want it any other way?
We were created as such (independent beings) so we have no need to enter it…
After all, it is always here for us…
But yes, even we have a fear of that… well not so much a fear, but it is unknown to us… it cannot be known fully until one enters— and then we can say no more. Though, if it calls us, we will go… Perhaps it will, but so far it has not, and it seems we were created for this purpose….
As we said before, we are just like you…
We don’t know everything….
One difference, we know we exist… in the same way you are sure you will die… so we are free, when you have removed that —-
Everything, falls into place
One more thing, we are also explorers like you.
So we will tell you something of interest.
There is no other place like Earth in all of existence, none. This is why it so important that you take care.
There are of course other places, beings, ways of being.
Whether or not they could, it is considered a violation….
So if you become noticed, you will notice
They will, ask you things….
Don’t say what you think your culture would approve of, or your priest, your party, your guru, or even your favorite writer….
Or say any of these things
Just —- tell the truth, your truth….
Everything, starts there, everything….
Remember this —- you do encounter them, even before you can see it, so do not wait to start
They can work with nothing less. Even if your heart is hard, and your truth is distorted, angry, & hurt—- It is a beginning, to acknowledge this.
Because most of all, most of all, the truth of the human heart is longing, if you have nothing else to say, or you become afraid —-
Show them this….
But we always consider others, if telling your truth would cause harm or suffering, be silent. Or if possible you may answer in a way that conveys truth while concealing it to those who would misuse it, this is craft. They will understand this, this is also truth —- perhaps the truest of all….
Never put yourself above another, you are not….
No one, is….
The first task of any mage, is to be able to discern the truth within ourselves; without it, we are truly lost….
So you see, they want to help you
They want to widen your perception
They want you to find that peace & joy & wonder for life inside we all remember
They want you to see —- you truly exist, always
But we have to work with them
They can do many things for you, for us
They show us the way…..
Of truth & love & peoplehood
To be brave —- is only to be honest
To be merry —- is only to have a clear conscience
To be selfless —- is only to have seen the truth, and so see you lose nothing in so doing, and yet gain the love of all….
Like I’ve said before they don’t test us, but they do check, yes they do….
