Gates of Light
Okay, not so daily. However: |
- Finished Gikatilla's Malkuth chapter Saturday. Much more productive discussion this time; I believe that 2d session's lack of insight needs to have responsibility located solely in my 6 hours of sleep and not the text.
- Sunday mostly made obscure qabalistic notes in my Witchcamp planning meeting, but that's par for the course. I did have a coven sister wholly inadvertently illumunate a word (yad) which I'd written without realising it.
- (This also reminds me that I had a dream a few night back about HaYad v' HaLev (the hand and the heart) - something about humanity being Ha Yad v' Ha Lev of G-d - the latter of which of course is not new but relates explicitly to the Levites.)
- Tonight have started reading the introduction of the Big Blue Brick, Liber ABA, or Book Four in the slightly insane impulse I get now and again to try to read the entire damn thing. Whether this yetzer is in fact ra or tov is an exercize left to the reader's imagination . . . however I have learnt a bit more of my thelemic history perusing the introduction, which is not by far a bad thing.
