Various musings while walking (part 18)  

• I don't refrain from lying because I am "virtuous," but rather because it takes far too much energy. [5.11.09]

• Compassion for the flower is cruelty to the weed and vice versa... but who decides what is a "flower" and what is a "weed"? [5.11.09]

Strength is not invulnerability - it takes great strength to allow oneself to be vulnerable to oneself and others. [5.11.09]

Physical-spiritual law - Evolution stagnates without catastrophe. [5.13.09]

Dinosaur ego - The dinosaur does not evolve to the human without a cataclysm (lightning flash/meteor). [5.13.09]

• The virtues of falsity, hedonism, forgetfulness, argument, promiscuity and selfishness are often forgotten while the vices of truth, austerity, remembrance, acceptance, chastity and selflessness are often ignored. [5.13.09]

Attainment as Understanding, not Sacrifice - It is self-sacrifice for the minister (ego) to acknowledge he works for the King (will) only when the minister mistakenly believes he is the King. The only thing sacrificed is a misunderstanding. [5.13.09]

Hi. Pardon the intrusion... Gerald sent me your New Aeon Initiation article for Rending the Veil, and I'm putting the Midsummer issue together now. The article includes a QT movie? I don't have QT installed; is the movie essential to the piece, and is there a website where I can view it?

The article is nearly 10,000 words. Normally we like to stay within 3,000 words; how do you feel about breaking it up into three chapters? I can do that, or I can go ahead and publish it in its entirety.

Thanks for your time.

I dont remember putting any kind of movie in the article... what are you talking about? Take it out :P

Feel free to split it into 3 chapters. Its actually divided into three parts on my livejournal (parts 0-1, parts 2-3, and parts 4-5). E-mail me at admin(at)thelemicstudies(dot)com if you need anything further.
