There are secret pathways upon the Earth.
Child, look to the North and you will see the place from which we have entered and may one day leave again.
Alone these paths must be walked and whoever does so shall overcome.
To the East there is another path which runs through all the doorways which are still closed to you.
On September 30, 1791, just two months before his death, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart premiered his great mystery play The Magic Flute in Vienna. It was the culmination of a life’s work and represented one of the most allegorical examples of the “path of toil that unto wisdom leadeth”.
Mozart attempted to capture the great secret of life and what it is. Whether he was successful or not will be determined by the ultimate end of mankind and the Earth within which he learns.
What is life?
This is a question which engenders much; why, when, what, who, and where, which encompasses all aspects of life itself, from mineral, plant and animal. Perceived life for a human being is composed of the short span of physical time from birth to the death of the animal part.
The obsession with the physical part of life forces mankind into a state of animalistic existence which lives for itself and discards reason and spiritual wisdom. The animal man scavenges within the dome of unconscious matter as the musical notes of Mozart reverberate throughout the conscious expanse of all that is possible.
Most sense that life is more than the root existence which we have been conditioned to accept and propagate through the externalization of spiritual ignorance. The common herd of the unthinking and disorganized masses have falsely accepted that the well-being of man is equal to the well-being of the animal part.
The religions and systems of governance of the world have contributed to this animalistic acceptance of dome and doom while promoting fullness and hope. The ritual of self-discovery and self-resurrection remain veiled behind the conflated message which has confused the animal man.
Yet the consciousness of the spiritual man, which remains hidden waiting to be called upon, has a message of love for others which can provide the everlasting happiness which the animal can never experience.
There is another form of life which exists after the destruction of the animal body. This form of life is eternal and is not dependent upon the animal part. The animal part is dependent upon the spiritual form of life.
Science would have us accept the twilight evolution of the animal origin while denying the spiritual. It is considered that man has progressed so far up the ladder of knowledge and existence that there is little distance left to travel. It would have us believe the hidden paths upon and within the Earth do not exist.
Still there is a higher state and evolution of spirit which will allow for the attainment of knowledge and that which has not yet been obtained. The engineers of existence have instructed the animal to become a philosopher. This observable truth remains hidden and obscured behind the machinations of the animal rulers.
The engineers have not abandoned that which was created. This work is not finished. The work of the animal remains unfinished. The work of the spirit remains unfinished. Philosophy is the endeavour to finish the work and open the doorways so the spirit can leave through the place where it entered.
But what is the Earth and where is it?
These questions are the paramount obsession of the animal part because it is the personification of the question “who am I?”.
The obvious answer which comes after much contemplation is that the Earth is a womb or cocoon where the mineral, plant, and animal parts transform into the ultimate expression of the spirit part. This unification and evolution of all parts is embedded within the material science and is veiled behind both textbook and bible.
It is not so much about the transformation of man as it is about the journey which spirit takes through the mineral kingdom, plant kingdom, animal kingdom, and onward to the ultimate expression of learned and mature spirit. Man is not independent from this journey and is a temporary expression of it.
So where is the Earth?
This is a profound question which is difficult to answer as it pushes the boundaries of even the most allegorical storylines. The simplest answer and most observable by man himself is that the Earth is everywhere. There is nowhere you go where the Earth is not observable.
What have you seen with your own eyes? What have you smelled with your own nose? What have you heard with your own ears? What have you touched with your own skin? What have you tasted in your own mouth?
The ends of the Earth is the place where your senses no longer have control over the animal part. There is a path for each sense which must be traveled in order to leave again. So asking “where the Earth is” would be better stated as “where does the Earth end”?
The ends of the Earth is beyond the senses where transformed spirit is manifest. The secret and hidden pathways which lead out are to be traveled by those who carry the philosophers stone.
But beware the “path of toil that unto wisdom leadeth”. Beware the misleading animal dance of Pan and the tune of his magic flute. - JC
