All of life is dichotomous, and life is all.
That’s the basis of knowledge and all to beheld.
Within knowledge and knowing, there’s that which is not
To be known without being. When locked in the plot
Of the drama of consciousness, I am compelled
To become all about it. This then is my call.
To contact and to interact with the unseen
Is the purview of both schools. In that, they’re the same.
I’m aware of the mystical. It is a state
Wherein I am connected as I contemplate
Pure existence. Contentment is its only aim.
Blending in with the greater good is what lives mean.
The occult, somewhat different, is meant to control.
To manipulate forces with gestures and speech…
Incantations or symbols – this is the desire
Of well-tempered occultists. What they may acquire
Are some insights that no other methods can reach.
Though some mystics would say this is bad for the soul.
