Your writing continues to improve and inspire.

I appreciate your:

- radical honesty

- grounded spirituality,

- willingness to dive deep

- relentless truth seeking

- ending on a positive note with actionable steps

I have researched many things you discussed above and have come to similar conclusions. The forces of darkness are indeed very pervasive but, like you said can be transmutted and healed. I have found this truth in both myself and the world.

I can tell your inner work is progressing a lot as shown by your writing and content. Thank you for your unique soul contribution 🙏 God bless you and your family.

Hi Jordan, this was very interesting to read (esp seeing the crossover of rationality estimates x magick conversation -- at least this is how I roughly associate that part of the post). I will be rereading this soon.

Do you know about daime? Following some of your other stuff on facebook, and Christ.. Rosary.. Ayahuasca.. That's what brings on this question :)

Hey Anya! Thanks for appreciating and for sending me this note, it means a lot <3 Yes I'm aware of Santo Daime though I've never experienced their work.

Keep an eye out, it sounds right up your alley! It's a wonderful way to connect to Virgin Mary. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a daime centre near where you live/ closer than you think.

Cool, thank you! Presently I'm feeling like the more intense period of psychedelic work in my life may be drawing to a close. Feeling more called to continue the spiritual process in a more sober, gradual way. And if I do feel called to ayahuasca, I'm unlikely to go anywhere other than Kumankaya, because I love/trust their work so much. Let's see, though. Never know!

Back in the day the Gnostic heretic marcion figured out that the father bud that Jesus prayed to wasn’t the same god worshipped by the Abrahamic religions, the analogy he often repeated was that of knowing the source from its fruit, no say the demiurge was of ever could be a God of love, marcion put forward the idea that Jesus real father was of an undifferentiated state of consciousness, of pre-consciousness, as with Saint Paul he believed that this world is fundamentally cast under the spell of demonic powers dominions and principalities, pretty much as your essay defined so eloquently, in that sense we are as fallen and culpable as the allegorical fallen angels, As with Saint Paul marcion believed that only salvation to be had is via the grace of this God above God whom Jesus was a mystical incarnation, who knows, but I completely agree with your thesis, “ something stinks in Denmark” and everyone seems oblivious to the source of the stench. Loved your brief reference to ANANDAMAI Ma one of the pure ones ..namaste
