True love comes right after trust.
What I thought to be Universe's Greates Joke turned out to be a dream that came true when I met you. My life regained all the joy it had never seen and my days rejuvenated. The sun finally rose, habits transformed into pleasure.
It is strange to see see someone at last who shares many of my qualities and slowly my life depended on you. I revolved around and aroundthe sun i thought will never die. A moon after, you made me into a flying star, unable to stop, unable to sleep.
You took away my core and shaped it into an asteriod and sent it speeding towards me. I, as a star, could'nt change my course and i chrashed against it. For a moment, the shards were suspended in space and i tried to recall in which piece was my essence, but i realized i was no more. Those shards became torrents of water that rained upon a world of darkness and shame.
Your betrayal was more than enough to make me weep. I tried to force you to put me back together but you pointedly refused.
The darkness became a void; a void into which I was consumed.
As the vortex took me in, I, then, understood why we must suffer as we do. I absorbed that darkness the Goddess so willingly offers me, and I became that void.
I resurfaced greater than I was, as I remembered my old self, the one who loved wisdom, the Philosopher. I broke all the bonds I had with you and kept going on.
It was only then that I realized where i truly belonged to, to the Oneness, To the Goddess and God; to the all. Knowledge more profound than any youl encounter, or perhaps imagine, was my legacy; my birthright.
Then I remembered my purpose on Earth, the one Hekate chose for me.
Look my dear, with or without you I am still Her High Priest; with or without you I am still myself.
When I though you were finally erased from my life, you appeared again, bringing back memories of when I was still that naive star rising through the Heavens I so falsely created and mistook for reality.
My tears came back, burning holes in my soul, and then you planted yet another asteroid in my face, but i don't fall into the same trap twice, I avoided it victoriously.
I will not deny that I still love you, and I don't deny that even I deserve a second chance, but if another chance comes by, I wont think twice. Then i will be telling you, So long!
Look, Joy Enters with Fame and Frolic and Rides along to end in Yggdrassil; I have found that tree, the true knowledge of the soul. The one we're supposed to seek. My Goddess gave me a task before you, to seek for Her Seekers, but now I have found the Key to be the Seeker myself.
If fate places you before me again, then So Be It! if not, then I wish you a long and Healthy life and may the Goddess bless you and smile upon you, for if it wasn't for you, I would have never found the Key.
What is the true meaning of life?
I know nothing of the world we live in, nor anything. I do not understand anything but the simplest of things. It is true that i may know something that others don't, but that doesn't mean that I'm more intellectual than others.
Intellect is nothing, but a point of view, one the people seem to think as important. Can someone tell me why is it important? Some might say, to survive, but really, howcan someone be more intelligent than another if we all know how to survive? Others might say to gain material and monetary wealth, the thing here is that why people seem to believe that money and wealth are truly important, if we can live in a world without money, by sharing. Other thing people seem to believe is that money buys happiness, well it is true in a way, but this happiness is evanescent and vain. Extremely poor people, in very sad conditions are happy, just the way they live. Material and monetary wealth are nothing but an illusion, one that most humans have fallen into.
What matters to the world, better said, to its inhabitants, is not what really matters. I heard a story once, about a king who had a burning thirst for knowledge. The king heard about an old wise hermit who lived many leagues far into the mountains. The king began his quest to find the old sage. He spent days, battling sun, wind, rain and hunger trying to reach the old man. One day, he found the man and he gave the king a human eye.
Disappointed, the king returned to his castle and placed the eye in a chamber he kept his most valued possesions. He put it there, not for its value, but rather for the difficulty of obtaining it. He suffered many a day of humger and frustration and neglected his royal duties trying to decypher the meaning of the accursed eye. After a lot of trying, at last he called in a magician and counselor.
The magician merely glanced at the eye and sighed. The king, expecting a magical formulato gain knowledge, awaited impatiently for the mage to commence his explanation. At last he had the answer, thought the king, but what never crossed his mind was that the answer might dissappoint him once again.
The magician said the eye didnt have any magical properties, but it taught its owner of the importance of seeking inner wisdom (introspection).
The man i heard this story from was a man who tried to put himself above others by showing off the vast knowledge he thought he had. Ironically, this man clearly doesn't know the true meaning of this, very insightful, story.
Presumption and greed are two very dangerous feelings that oneself must extricate from, the sooner the better.
I wonder why people believe they are what they think and not who they really are. Accepting yourself for who you are is the first step, and it is a blessing we all have, all we have to do is search for it. My pettition right now is: do not fight each other, and do not believe you are better than the other. Stretch your hand towards the other and work for a same goal. Doing so will make you One with Mother Earth, because we share the same dream.
Thank you Lady of the Crossroads, Goddess Hecate!
