Poem -

THE LIGHTED WAY

There is energy around us
A pure ebbing flow
Some say that it's spirit
Or a god they love and know

Some say that it's angels
Or devils in disguise
Or illness of a broken mind
Where shadows grip and grind

But this raw pulsating power
Is greater force than we
Is there for all to harness
But most souls cannot see

For are we not intelligent
Too superior to feel
The energy our ancestors

Knew for sure was real

The lost souls find it soonest
For light holds sway to dark
It reaches out to save us
When life becomes too stark

Like a signal from another earth
Our channels must be tuned
But once heard it is cherished
And on its flow we cruise

It guides the way to treasures
The small things gone unseen
Viewed afresh through opened eyes
On a wondrous kindly beam

For this life is a second
In the vastness of the soul
Lonely is an unknown word
And the tired self is whole

Tappped into the silent voice
The spirit finds its home
Where the true self finds a comfort
And no more walks alone.
Marion Price (2019)

Damn good work.

I think you would like W.B. Yeats essay
on magic from his Ideas On Good andΒ 
Evil book. it's available online most likely.

You likely won't agree with all of it, but
much of it will fascinate you.

I'm going to Google it...it has always fascinated me that to hear 'God's voice' is acceptable, even desirable yet psychics and the like are scorned, yet they hear voices, have visions they choose to call spirit not God. Mental health patients have visions, hear voices but are deemed mad, though personally I think they are so sensitive and tuned in to the 'other' they get overloaded, overwhelmed and cannot function. Others might speak of aliens and  as are laughed at, but none of us really know anything for sure...what is the difference?? Is it not just the same energy called different things depending on the perspective of the person? It exists though...this higher energy, it exists. Thankyou sincerely for taking the time Icarus 🌹🌹

You make very valid observations Marion.
me personally? I think all paths lead to the
same ends. As you said, we just tend to place
a variety of names upon the same Essential
Force. It's as above/so below in a sense.
