The Enlightenment Journey: Reconciling Two Primal Urges

To ascend the ladder to Heaven is easy, once you know how it’s properly done.

To descend into the depths of the unconscious does not have to be hard, once you understand what it actually means.

There are many paths before us that are only hard in the mind of the beholder. It is personal perception that makes a path either hard, or easy to walk.

Your mind is a powerful tool.
Your mind is what connects you to Heaven.
At the same time, your mind is what connects you to Earth.

Do you see it? Do you understand? There are two primal urges to reconcile. An urge to transcend! And an urge to be normal – enjoy a life. You can be both! Still, and engaged. Verily is the Kingdom here on Earth as it is in Heaven

Your mind is the ladder that bridges Heaven and Earth. The ladder is inside you. The ladder is YOU! You can ascend into Heaven or descend into the unconscious, as a matter of Will. You have the power, and internally, you already know the Way. All you need to do is remove the many hindrances that litter the road, making your passage seemingly more difficult.

We call this road repair or, RECTIFICATION.

Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem


When looking outside ourselves all we see is chaos. When looking inside ourselves, we often see the outside world reflected inside us. Therefore, inside us, we also see chaos. But this is not the way it is supposed to be! We should never reflect the outside world inside us. Rather, we must always reflect the inner world into our surrounding world. This is Kabbalah. This is Tantra. This is the great secret Art of the Great Work of the Occultists, represented in Key #14 on the 32 Paths of Wisdom.

Inside influences outside, not the other way around. Yet, in order for the inner You to influence your outer world, you must know the Inner You, and allow its clear sense of identity to impose itself upon the chaotic outside world.

The power of the mind is the key. The source of the mind is the Will.

Think clearly. Focus strongly. Desire only that which is within. Forget about the chaos outside. Focus on the internal reality, and make it real! You can do this!

And why? Because thoughts are things. And thoughts are the souls that come to inhabit the bodies that make up this world. Therefore, draw down to Earth the souls of your choice.
Transform the world.


Rectify it! Repair the road!

It all begins with, and ends with the power of YOUR mind!
