All power is to be placed in restrained mildness and stillness, and the innermost rest of resoluteness is to be preserved for the playing out of the highest necessities of Dasein from the most intrinsic plight and most extrinsic affliction. Steadfastness of the simple gaze at what is Essentially unique – the increasing ability to detach oneself from everything whereby ‘one’ can only ‘be’ at the point of doing something.”

Started practicing the Sacred Occidental Art of Kalligraphy. It will take time and patience to perfect this particular Art. That does not matter at all. Time well spent in this Age of trivilization, in this Kali Yuga. Patience and perfection are no longer virtues anymore. What counts is speed and utilitarianism.

The picture is taken in France, the Provence, which has become my spiritual homeland. A region full of authentic beauty, where the historical Destiny of the West can still be felt.

Darkness

Heidegger makes clear that humans are ineradicably tied to the dark:

“Darkness is perhaps in play for all thinking at all times. Humans cannot set it aside. Rather, they must learn to acknowledge the dark as something unavoidable and to keep at bay those prejudices that would destroy the lofty reign of the dark. Thus the dark remains distinct from the pitch-black as the mere and utter absence of light. The dark however is the secret of the light. The dark keeps the light to itself. The latter belongs to the former. Thus the dark has its own limpidity.”

Marching on!

The Eternal Cult of Speed and Violence. One’s inner Struggle never ceases. Marching on towards the spiritual Destiny of the West. My inner change started with Nietzsche, Bataille, Baelder, the ONA and now these ‘elements’ are re-inforced with Heidegger… An ongoing Acéphalic Alchemical Quest!

Essays on Perennial Philosophy

ACCORDING to the famous English author, Aldous Huxley (1894–1963), seekers of the Perennial Philosophy are not interested in the social environment for “its progressiveness or non-progressiveness (whatever those terms may mean), but the degree to which it helps or hinders individuals in their advance towards man’s final end.” The philosophia perennis, to use the Latin term, has its roots in the Neoplatonist ideas of Greek thinkers such as Plotinus (204/5–270), Porphyry (234–305) and Iamblichus (245–325). Undergoing something of a revival in the first half of the twentieth century, particularly under the auspices of the Traditionalist School, this belief in an Absolute whose primordial roots can be located within many of the world’s main religions has fascinated men such as Ananda Coomaraswamy (1877-1947), René Guénon (1886–1951), Julius Evola (1898–1974) and Frithjof Schuon (1907–1998) for many centuries. The idea of a timeless spirituality which unites all metaphysical beliefs at the most fundamental level does not involve the application of an insipid ecumenicalism as a means to achieve the creation of a syncretic global religion, on the contrary, as Mircea Eliade (1907–1986) explains people “acquire their reality, their identity, only to the extent of their participation in a transcendent reality.” The importance, therefore, lies in making a crucial distinction between the Sacred and the Profane. In this engaging new study, a group of writers and poets – both new and established – examine the ramifications of the Perennial Philosophy in light of the continuing encroachment of the modern world. Chapters include Anti-Tradition in the Age of Iron (Troy Southgate), The Eternal Strife Between the Earth and the World: A Collision Between the Real and the Illusory (Von Sanngetall), Ode to Evola (Richard J. Levy), Eliade on Perennial Religion and Time (K. R. Bolton), The Primordial and the Consequential: Alfred North Whitehead and the Idea of a Dipolar God (Troy Southgate), Jordan B. Peterson: Challenging Postmodernism by Channelling Modernity (Arslan Akhtar), The Illusion of Democracy (Troy Southgate), The Christ Myth as a Manifestation of Perennialism in Antiquity (Keith Preston), What’s Past is Poetry: Poetic Wisdom in History (Julio Cesar Pino), Flame Without Fire: A Brief Exposition of the Flamma Non Urens (Troy Southgate), Perennial Philosophy and Christian Myths and Mysticism (J. M. Franco), Friedrich Schelling: Herald of the Philosophia Perennis (Troy Southgate) and Blessed Mother Goddess: Syncretism in Mariology and Marian Veneration Cults (Sean Jobst).

A nuclear Eruption

The last human era of a rampant technological nihilism. The Acéphalic Svn erupts and its Sacred nuclear core prepares Eorthe for the Age of Brutalism. Heidegger did forecast a New Beginning, a Return of The Chtonic Gods and these Dark Gods are furious. Be prepared and meditate on your Death. 333!
