This was a place that swallowed hope. This was a place that told the truth, revealed ugliness, celebrated all the wrong things. Chances are, he belonged here.
“Up rears the pillar. Quaintly shaped and hued,
It focussed all the sky and all the plain
To its own ugliness. I looked again,
And saw its magic in another mood.
A shapeless truth took image in my brain.” [via]
“Grace” is a track added by Sublimatus in the Hermetic Library audio pool.
“Grace” from School of Sorcery by Sublimatus
“Grace conceals herself,
So if you think you’ve found her,
Be thee weary,
The seven tides of fury may carry Grace away,
Yet once you’ve leaved to marry,
Mother, Maiden, Crone to the Warrior, Father, Fool,
The links of time carry no bind,
And tides are shafts of light,
To be embraced in thoughtless hours of a moment’s trace,
I ask for the shameless night, and lightening blots of blue,
I crave desire’s edge and nothing that is new,
Where Wisdom is folly and Wealth is Poverty,
And seed is Desolation and Life is Death,
And Dominance is Subjugation
Peace is War, and Grace is Ugliness
The Falcon calls the tune and no mask shall I wear
The Falcon calls the tune”
The Hermetic Library audio pool is an auditory scavenger hunt for sounds and music of a living Western Esoteric Tradition.
Music and performance can be a form of ritual and magick. Works and artists have long been inspired by the ideas of Western Esotericism and Mysticism. This group is to help create a space for sharing, music and other audio, and connecting with artists who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works.
