Into The Dreaming

Dear Friends, Here we are, winding down to the Solstice. It’s dark up here in the north country, we seem to get up in the dark, the sky lowers down early on, and into the long night again. It is a time of dreaming, spell work, and attending to matters close to the hearth. Yet, the season promises change. When the Solstice comes, we tip back, and the light will gather strength and speed again, and the great spiral of…

Her Beauty

“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.” ― Voltaire (available at Gwyllm-Art/com) ~~~~~~~~ Hello Friends, It has been awhile. Too long in fact, we have been trying to migrate this part of Turfing back to the old server, so we can have everything on Earthrites.org again. So far, no luck but we are still aiming to get there. Life has been busy, restarted Radio EarthRites, working…

Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason. – Novalis This is Gwyllm’s homage to one of the great women of the modern occult era, Leila (Laylah) Waddell, musician, magician, the muse of Aleister Crowley, an adept who travelled the world consorting with all levels of society helping render change in the modern age. (Leila) “was immortalized in his 1912 volume The Book of Lies and his autobiography The Confessions of Aleister Crowley. Crowley referred to her variously as ‘Divine Whore’,…

The Great Wheel

Ballads Of Four Seasons: Spring The lovely Lo Fo of the western land Plucks mulberry leaves by the waterside. Across the green boughs stretches out her white hand; In golden sunshine her rosy robe is dyed. ‘my silkworms are hungry, I cannot stay. Tarry not with your five-horse cab, I pray.’ Li Po (Li Bai) The Great Wheel: Dear Friends, A beautiful week here in P-Town. Working in the N.E., working on art, hanging with my sweetheart.

In The Houses Of Mystery

“The universe is a kaleidoscope: now hopelessness, now hope now spring, now fall. Forget its ups and downs: do not vex yourself: The remedy for pain is the pain.” – Sarmad “The High, The Holy“, a new piece. With tints of Syrian Rue Red(It’s in the carpets folks, for a reason!), and the Moon to propel it, “The High, The Holy” is a visual song/homage to my background and studies over the years. I hope you enjoy it. ~~ Dear…

That Eternal Moment

But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.

It is a real departure for me, a little more overt compared to some of my other pieces.  If interested, it is located here: “Invocation” ~~~~~~ Dear Friends, The core of…

In The Field Of The Seraphim

“When a society is afraid of its poets, it is afraid of itself. A society afraid of itself stands as another definition of hell.” — Lenore Kandel Before I stand accused of nostalgia, let me offer this up: This entry is a telling of a tale of exploration, and perhaps illumination, not unlike countless others across time and the universe, but it has a set and setting… I am not one to relive/rehash my youth. I am quite happy in…

Days

“An-naasu niyaam wa idhaa matu’ntabahu” Days: I hope this finds you all well, and with loved ones and friends. The passing of a year, the emerging of a new one are blurred markers of our trajectories through the arc of being. The New Year is an agreement, like that of dating years. Many societies have New Years of course. The Celts had theirs on November 1st, others of course had theirs tied to the Lunar and or Solar procession. I…

In The Center

“If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.” ― Lao Tzu The year is rushing past it seems, just as I was getting adjusted into it. The last few weeks has seen a calming down, and a recentering which is a relief. We are much more settled into our new digs, and had a nice gathering for…
