Inspiration is as much a mystery of the human spirit as imagination and ingenuity. I believe one of the strongest driving forces behind the rapid evolution of mankind, and now our freefall into technological advancement is nothing less than the knowledge of our own mortality. If it were not for that uniquely human quality there would be no reason to be any more creative in our techniques of survival and territorial defense than was had by all previous generations.


Inspiration is all those kinds of and degrees of the spirit influence
Brought to bear upon the minds of learned men—
In order to secure the putting into permanent and written form
The truth best adapted to mans
Body and Spirit.
Inspiration may include Revelation,
Or communication by ordinance,
The truth to which man would not attain by his unaided powers.
It may include Illumination,
Quickening ones cognitive powers
To understand truth already revealed.
Inspiration, however does not necessarily
Always include
Either Revelation or Illumination.
It is simply the influence
Which secures a transmission
Of needed truth to the future.
According to the nature of the truth to be transmitted,
It may be an Inspiration
Of super intelligence,
Or it may also,
And at the same time
An Inspiration of Illumination
Or Revelation.
If Inspiration,
Is to be defined,
   Not by the method,
   But by its result,
It must therefore
 Be the means to Achievement,
Then also it is the pathos of power,
And its accumulation the issuance of Annihilation.
To suppose this has come and gone
Is to lie in a fool’s lair.
 is to know that it has not.
 is the hopeless quest for the
When of it.
The eschatological journey
that ends where it starts.
Through Inspiration comes
Through Revelation comes
Through Illumination comes
Through Annihilation comes
Through Darkness comes
Through Light comes
The Receiving Circle
That has no exit.
The Iron Gates
Strike all heads
The mark of false devotion.
Make way
The Colored Door.
 The Struggle Starts Now
