"If Will stops and cries Why, invoking Because, then Will stops & does nought."
I lay possessed by a demon. Obsession. Twisted by talons; self-love & hatred knotting my guts. Howling frustration into the night, the broken dream heaped around my bed. Later.
A shaft of light burns through the brooding darkness; my cloak of night, my self-sewn shroud. Knowledge. Insight. Wild laughter. A strange way into gnosis. A self-wounding, stretching back into my personal time. I crawl into my centre, my circle, and with my pen etch a triangle. And force the monster into it, and unloosen the skeins of form; moments of weakness, wanting and waiting, desire ignited by imagination. Manufacturing my own junk, my own addiction.
If this is wading through "qlipothic muck" then so be it. But out of this muck I wove a conversation, a story with no chance of a happy ending. A story which clouded my will, which blurred my eye. I made this monster; a golem born of my own longings & shortcomings, and now I will take it apart, piece by piece, draining the pus from knotted passions. We are but knots in a cord. Untie them and we slip easily across the aeons into nebulous dreams.
