THE BOOK OF THE ROYAL ART 


EPILOGUE

 

I AM PERMITTED TO REVEAL TO ALL MEN
WHO COMPREHEND MY WORDS
WHAT THE CIRCLE OF SO FEW
EVEN TODAY KEEPS SO SECRET.
THOSE BROTHERS
WITH WHOM I AM UNITED IN SPIRIT,
BUT WHOSE THOUGHTS
ARE TRANSFERRED BY BLOOD
AND BOUND TO ANCIENT FORM,
ONLY ALLOW SPARING INSIGHT
TO SEVERELY TESTED PUPILS
AFTER HARD AND PERSISTENT
TRAINING.
ALL CONCERNS WHICH SOUGHT TO
PREVENT THIS MESSAGE BEING
REVEALED
HAVE BEEN DEPRIVED OF THEIR
POWER, –
YET THE REVELATION REMAINS
HIDDEN FROM ALL THOSE
WHO THEMSELVES CAN NOT YET SEE.
CONSCIOUSLY I SHUNNED THE
WESTERN WAY:
WHICH CALLS ‘REALITY’ ONLY TO
WHAT THE BRAIN SEES AS SUCH. –
FOR I AM FITTED INTO ETERNAL ORDER
AND FOLLOW LAWS MADE BEYOND TIME.
