18. The Golden Way

  1. The Poet arose in the dark of morning, and he journeyed to the great lake where he had asked the people to meet him.
  2. And he beheld that many people walked his way, and when he arrived at the place, he saw that a great multitude did gather to hear him.
  3. And he spake unto the people, saying, “Most wise, most righteous, most faithful people, suppose I gave you a gift; would you accept it? And suppose I gave you truth; would you know it? And suppose I spoke Wisdom to you; would you hear it? And suppose I lit a flame in your own hearts; would you feel it? 
  4. I pray ye, hear these words which I shall speak unto you, that your souls may taste of Alignment, and that ye may be clean, and that ye may rise, and that ye may be free.
  5. And know that these words come not from me, but from the Sage—yay, even the Logos, and even THE ONE. And know that these words will be dead once they have left my mouth, for a word is without form if it has no vessel to contain it. And it is your purpose to resurrect these words in your own lives, even that they may have life. So be ye as vessels, and carry these truths with you, even that they may reach the sands of distant lands, and that they may be spread throughout the infinite expanse of eternity.
  6. And I say unto you as we stand here by this lake, and as the morning birds wake with the coming light, that if ye would taste of Alignment, then fill your cups with the water of eternal knowledge, for divine Wisdom doth flow like water, and it is good to those who drink.
  7. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then sit, and see, and feel, and hear, for those who hurry know not the way, and they know not the time of eternity, and they are slaves to their tasks, and they will not be free, and they will not be Aligned.
  8. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then set your aim at a knowledge of matters human and divine, yay, even of that which is in common among all things, and even that which is eternal.
  9. Despise the wayward flesh, for things of the flesh doth become corrupt upon the minute, even upon an instant. But divine, eternal treasures do not corrupt, for they are everywhere and nowhere, and they are without form, and yet they form all, and neither the rust of metal nor the termites of the trees can corrupt such treasures as these.
  10. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then see that virtue doth lie in the seed, and even in the Tree, yea, even in THE ONE. And see, also, that you are built upon virtue, and that virtue pervades every part of your soul, and even every part of THE ONE.
  11. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then seek sound  understanding, even a knowledge of Nature, and of Culture, and of the divine spark which doth connect them—even the Logos—and of the Whole which doth encompass them all, which is THE ONE. For by Nature ye have been formed, and by Culture ye have been shaped, and ye must be guided by the Sageeven the Logos, and even THE ONE—if ye would be Aligned. 
  12. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then know that all is good which is in and of THE ONE, for that which exists in and of itself is not to be judged, for it cannot be otherwise. And know this, too, that your own wretched lives do also exist in and of THE ONE, and know that it is not for Him to order your lives. But lo, see that He has given you your own divine spark—which is the Logos, and even the Sage—that you may be as shining beacons unto the world, and that you might feel the joy of eternal life. 
  13. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then build not amongst yourselves tribes on Earth, but join the one tribe—even the tribe of all things. Be ye as citizens of the Cosmos, for this tribe is eternal, and it is above all tribes on the Earth.
  14. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then pay close attention, and be as students—even students of all that is wise, and of all that is eternal, and of all that is in common. For if ye would learn at all times, and in all places, and with all people, then would your understanding not be multiplied? Would ye not be shown things which are now hidden? Will deep Wisdom not be poured into your hearts?
  15. I say to all of ye who hear, that the Sage—even the Logos—doth seek to whisper many secrets which are now hidden from you, but He can only do so if ye would first ask the question.
  16. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then be not as judges of your people, but be ye citizens. Let not the tongue rule your lives, and utter no hateful words amongst yourselves. Let your hands point not at your brothers and your sisters, but let your judgements fall only on yourselves, for it is not just that the blind should lead the blind, and that the ill should cast out the ill. Be as one kind to each other, and even to those who hate you, for those who hate shall have their reward, but you are called to greater purposes.
  17. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then love that which is your fate, and listen to the Logos, even the Sage born of your Mother and Father, who were born of THE ONE. The Sage will show you how the things which happen to you could be turned to good, and He will show you that all is good which happens, for nothing is without purpose which exists within and of THE ONE.
  18. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then be ye as caretakers. Tend well to the gardens of thy mind, for if thou would tend to the gardens of thy mind, then thou wouldst tend to the Universal Garden. Watch for those things that would corrupt the Garden; lo, watch even for weeds that grow, and for vermin that would eat the fruits of the Garden. Know the Garden well, that ye may take good care.
  19. And if ye would taste of Alignment, then be not perplexed. Lo, consider the ants at your feet, that they go about their morning duties without complaint or vexation. And do they question their purpose? And is the fox perplexed? And do the birds seek the way? Nay, they do not, for ye can surely hear them now as they sing their joyous songs of praise to the coming of day. They know their duty to THE ONE, and they do it well. 
  20. And what of all of ye? Have ye no purpose? Have your own Father and Mother left you with no compass by which ye may know yourselves? Behold, if ye would kindle your own spark—even that ye may be a beacon unto the world, and even that THE ONE may have eyes with which to see, and ears with which to hear, and a heart with which to feel—would this not be the way? Would ye not walk on the path of  Alignment, even as I do?
  21. You have all been divinely ordained as seers of THE ONE. Arise, all ye who have heard this call, and reflect the light of the Burning Sage, even that He might work through you to reveal those things which are now hidden—even the great secrets of THE ONE.
  22. And now, dear people, if ye would taste of Alignment, then follow the Golden Way, and feel the warmth of the Sun, which is eternal life.
  23. See now as the Sun rises above the distant horizon; do ye see a path to the Sun, that ye may be Aligned? Lo, if ye would watch the Sun, and if ye would kindle your own spark of divinity, even the fiery Logos which burns within you, then ye would surely know that there is a path.
  24. And watch now as the Sun doth pave the Golden Way from where He sits on the far horizon to where ye now stand.
  25. And see that the way is straight, and see that the way is narrow. And the way—even the Golden Way of eternity—is the Logos, and even the Sage, for as each of you would listen to the Sage, and as you would hear what He would teach, He will be building thy path, and thine own way will surely stretch into eternity.
  26. And I ask ye now, as the rays of the Sun reach out and caress your faces and nourish your souls: doth He ask permission? And doth He seek thy favour? And do ye ask permission from the Sun, that your bodies may be enriched by His nourishing light? Nay, ye do not, and yet  He gives nourishment. And the Sage may be likened unto the Sun, for none need seek permission, and none need reward, but when ye have seen, and when ye have heard, and when ye have felt, then ye will know, and ye will commune with Him, and ye will be guided by Him.
  27. So kindle your flame, and be ye as beacons unto all the Cosmos. Shine your light brightly, even brighter than the Sun, and walk with me on the Golden Way which doth stretch to Heaven, even that we may play on the branches of eternity, and that we may each be Aligned.
  28. And now, seers, walk with me, and we shall return to the village. Be not frightened of what shall become of me, for it is good with me, and it is good with THE ONE.
  29. Go ye on your ways, even the ways which hath been given to you by the Sage, and cling to the providential Wisdom which ye have heard here today, and become Wisdom, and become truth, and become light.
  30. And if today I shall die, then be ye not saddened, for it shall be only my flesh which shall die, but these words shall live forever. I have walked the Golden Way, as will all of ye; I have spoken truth, as will all of ye; I have fulfilled my preordained purpose, as shall all of ye; and now I shall swim in the great sea of eternity, and I shall sing the song of the Cosmos, and I shall dance on the branches of the Tree, and I shall be Aligned, even with THE ONE.”
