WISDOM DOESN’T EQUAL HAPPINESS

“WISDOM DOES NOT EQUAL HAPPINESS. A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL BE HAPPY. YOU WILL OBSERVE THAT THIS UNIVERSE IS DEVOID OF EMPATHY, AESTHETIC, JOY AND EQUANIMITY. IT IS SIMPLY AN AMALGAMATION OF INSENTIENT, CALLOUS, INDESTRUCTIBLE FORCES.

PLEASURE AND BEAUTY IN ANY UNIVERSE IS WHAT YOU CREATE AND ENDOW.
A SPIRITUAL BEING IS THE SOURCE OF JOY.”

AS ABOVE SO BELOW

Mortality Mechanics' ManualThe Secret of The Thrice-Greatest Hermes (the three parts of the wisdom — alchemy, astrology, and theurgy — is a text purporting to reveal the secret of the primordial No-Thing and its diverse transmutations, passed down to humankind through an entity described as a combination of the Greek messenger of the gods, Hermes, and the Egyptian god Thoth, who guided souls to the afterlife.)

It was revealed in a letter written by the Greek philosopher and teacher, Aristotle to his student, Alexander the Great, who perceived himself as god-like, and yet remained mortal.  Aristotle, hoping to pass his own investigation into the Mystery of Mysteries to his student, related this story of his adventures:

“Here is that which the priest Sagijus of Nabulus has dictated concerning the entrance
of Balinas into the hidden chamber…  
After my entrance into the chamber I came up to an old man sitting on a golden throne.  He was holding an emerald tablet in one hand.

And behold the following, engraved in Cyriac, the primordial language of Cyrus The Great, was written thereon:  It contains an accurate commentary that cannot be doubted.  It states:

“What is the above is from the below and the below is from the above. The work of Wonders is from The One.”

PARTS OF A RELATIONSHIP

Recently, I’ve thought a lot about the subject of “relationships”, in an attempt to live my own life on Earth.  One of the most joyful and agonizing experiences in existence is the successful creation and maintenance of a “relationship”.   It is easy enough to withdraw from relationships and simply give up on them because they can be painful, confusing, frustrating and a lot of hard work!   In human society it is very commonly the source of turmoil, destruction and unhappiness.  If anyone has any more ideas about how to have a successful relationship, I’d like to know….

Here are a few definitions that I think are the most important parts of a “relationship”, in relative order of importance:
