“Tricks of the trade?
Ain’t tricks boy,
That’s Death you’re looking at”
— Louis Gossett Jr
in “El Diablo”
Do you wish to see God?
We who call ourselves mystics
Say we ache for divine vision
This is easy to say
But who of us has dared to look at the Sun?
Do you really want mystical vision?
To go where a mountain is not a mountain
To do that you must eat forbidden fruit
Go into the forbidden room
And pay the price of breaking the rules
The price of the forbidden is always death
Yet death is the zero point of the soul
The beginning must start with emptiness
Emptiness opens us up to the spirit
Then gives a Möbius twist to our soul
What is this Möbius twist of soul?
That changes a Zer0 to ∞
This Möbius twist of soul is Truth
This Möbius twist of soul is Freedom
This Möbius twist of soul is Death
Truth and Freedom are forbidden fruit
Freedom and Truth are like perfection
They are the path of madness
They are the path of blindness
Blind & Crazy are the marks of a mystic
But not just any Blind or Crazy will do
For like babies we have to learn
Learn to speak and see
Learn the words and symbols
Learn the language of God
