Things to ponder ~ it flows much nicer than the Hathor one, yet talks about the same ~ Wendy
1] All human beings are different. And should do everything possible to continue to be so.
2] Each human being has been granted two courses of action: that of deed and that of contemplation. Both lead to the same place.
3] Each human being has been granted two qualities: power and gift. Power drives a person to meet his/her destiny, his gift obliges that person to share with others which is good in him/her. A human being must know when to use power, and when to use compassion.
4] Each human being has been granted a virtue: the capacity to choose. For he/she who does not use this virtue, it becomes a curse and others will always choose for him/her.
5] Each human being has the right to two blessings, which are: the blessing to do right, and the blessing to err. In the latter case, there is always a path of learning leading to the right way.
6] Each human being has his own sexual profile, and should exercise it without guilt provided he does not oblige others to exercise it with him/her.
7] Each human being has his own Personal Legend to be fulfilled, and this is the reason he is in the world. The Personal Legend is manifest in his enthusiasm for what she/he does.
Single paragraph the Personal Legend may be abandoned for a certain time, provided one does not forget it and returns as soon as possible.
8] Each man has a feminine side, and each woman has a masculine side. It is necessary to use discipline with intuition, and to use intuition objectively.
9] Each human being must know two languages: the language of society and the language of the omens. The first serves for communication with others. The second serves to interpret messages from God.
10] Each human being has the right to seek out joy, joy being understood as something which makes one content not necessarily that which makes others content.
11] Each human being must keep alight within him the sacred flame of madness. And must behave like a normal person.
12] The only faults considered grave are the following: not respecting the rights of ones neighbor, letting oneself be paralyzed by fear, feeling guilty, thinking one does not deserve the good and bad which occurs in life, and being a coward.
Paragraph 1 we shall love our adversaries, but not make alliances with them. They are placed in our way to test our sword, and deserve the respect of our fight.
Paragraph 2 we shall choose our adversaries, not the other way around.
12A] We hereby declare the end to the wall dividing the sacred from the profane: from now on, all is sacred.
14] Everything which is done in the present, affects the future by consequence, and the past by redemption.
15] The impossible is possible

I really enjoyed reading this. Although when you get down to it, practice is what does the transformation, we also need the positive thought forms to motivate and inspire us to change. HI liked his book, “The Alchemist” as well because of that focus on us being able to will a positive reality into existence.
Thanks for posting,August 20, 2010 at 1:08 am #34977
Thanks Wendy. Simple and to the point.
The only one I didn’t understand is #11. “11] Each human being must keep alight within him the sacred flame of madness. And must behave like a normal person.”. I could guess and say it means something like keeping a yin/yang balance. Or maybe madness means excitement? You got me, I can only guess.August 20, 2010 at 6:42 am #34979
I like # 11:
I think you should read ‘madness’ in a poetic sense, it is a inner freedom, a sense of anything is possible, anything can be accomplished, not being bound by rules or morals but feeling free to explore but yet act as a normal person within your society.
I think many inventions came into existance that way… if the mind can wander into the vastness of realities, it can bring back useful information that serves mankind. Who is bound by rules and laws lives by those limitations and can only wander so far, or needs drugs, alcohol or sex to break free from them, temporarily, to find the way back to the freeflowing madness that feeds us as nectar.
(and I do wonder – and that is maybe food for discussion -, if spiritual practice is one of those ways to come in contact with our creative madness?!)
I am all for a zip of madness every day, keeps boredom away 🙂August 20, 2010 at 9:49 am #34981
The madness (as I how and why you manifest it so wonderfully) is allowing the formless / the chaotic / the unconditioned spiritual, into this limited world of form.August 21, 2010 at 4:08 am #34983
I have been feeling the madness creeping in as of late. One can only wonder at its beginning or its end.August 21, 2010 at 10:36 pm #34985
OK, I’ll bite.
Is there something you wish to share?

not particularly, everyone goes through their own changes, and its not always easy.August 23, 2010 at 1:03 am #34989
Fair enough. I only asked because I sensed you had something on your mind.
But I also understand the need for silence also.
You have my support in your transition.
