Black Diamond Gnosis

by PanSpiritus

Age Group: Adult

I arose, kicking
galaxies behind me
flaying light like the
jewels of Indra's net
in the dark sea of the abyss.

My mind like a peacock's fan
Looks out a thousand directions
Into you, where you see me
Before and through all others.

Sol lays his dying bruised head
Into the soil of my breasts
Yet I AM the first thing
Passing out of
Bejewelling silence.

Among ten thousand stars
Earth Mother hurls back
A white ray from a black sun
Sure sign that She
Dances in joyous retreat
To the one she knew before
Undying creatrix sees the same One
in a different picture

This light is the final mirth
With which all realities begin.
Having nothing to give up
We give everything
Having nothing to look at
We see everything.

How elegant and brilliant
Are we in dazzling darkness!
And immaculately conceived
in unceasing Renewing Intelligence!
In the presence of all mysteries -
Thinking we had died and fallen -
Life presents another chance.
Somehow such a satisfying reflection
We see through the pain that comes before.
Somehow such a renewed conception
The taste of life is undulled and bittersweet.

Rightly viewed from every angle!
Perfect Light, Resplendent Being
Let this witch be your diamond eye!

Author's Notes: This is basically a summation of the Winter Solstics experience I had. The Winter Solstice is represented by the sign of Capricorn, the Qaballistic pathway of Ayin - which is called the "Renewing Intelligence" and whose stone is the black diamond. It's also the period ruled by the element of Earth, the center of the mysteries and the "Mighty Ones" or fixed stars of the North Pole which crown the sky on Yule night.

It is this time of year when the night sky is as black as the lightless earth beneath the ground but everything is cold, resplendent, and bejewelled. This time of gathering allows us to see ourselves and family from every angle, much like staring through a multi-faceted diamond.
