Sometimes it is nescessary to remind ourselves of our cosmic insignificance. At other times, it is nessecary to remind ourselves and those around us of who we are, what we’ve done, and what we are capable of.
The following is a personal meditation. Perhaps others might find value in making one of their own.
I am the Satyr Magician.
I am an explorer of four worlds,
charging wildly into madness,
with a machete in one hand
and a jug of wine in the other.
I have lain with the Heart Encircled by A Serpent.
I have been seduced by both the Moon and the Sun.
I have seen visions of the Cosmos and of Elder Ages.
I am an initiate of the Seven Spheres
and of the Underworld and the Four Realms.
I have battled ghosts and Shadows.
I have been adopted and abandoned both by familiar spirits.
I have been assaulted by Guides and rejected by my ancestors.
My flesh has been home to goddesses and demons.
I have crafted new life from fragments of my soul.
I have survived every enemy that has arisen before me.
I have been both lover and beloved,
and I have survived those endings, as well.
I have built myself up from raw earth
only to burn myself down again for fun.
I am the product of both my experiences
and my ambitions.
I am the Obsidian Dream.
I am Teiresias of Dionysos.
