Not so long ago I was chained by hundreds of ideas of what the world
should be, the inner dialogue ran rampant, hurting and bearing on
everything inside of me. My first true journey to power happened when
I finished high school and I found myself drawn to Japan, the first
night I arrived I heard a voice as if behind me, it said only one
word, a word that has already had profound ramification on my life,
Bushi, the Japanese word for warrior.
I would not hear the voice again until many years later, when I had
taken up Thelemic philosophy, which if some of you don’t know much
about it, it is much the same as what Don Juan would have referred to
as shouting the birds of death back, It allowed me to tap into my
anger and demand to hear the voice again, asking it what it was.
The answers i received where at the beings own meandering pace, It
would not cave to my meager power, but it promised many things that
would send me reaching in circles for the next two years.
It was then that I found a book that helped me to understand, a book
that gave me hope, The teachings of Don Jaun. This stage was before I
had begun my recapitulation and made no correlation between the
warriors of that world and the warrior that I was understood as by
This revelation alone was not enough to curb the state that my life
was going into though and it wasn’t until I had my car stolen, lost my
house, lost my job and was living in a garage bloating my sorrow with
alcohol that I found parallel perception and mustered up the energy to
ask a core burning question, which was supported but in a matter of
words dismissed immediately.
My recapitulation has revealed how masterful the members involved
responses where and at the time it and how much those few words helped
me understand made their core advise stand out, get a hold of the
books written by Lujan Matus.
I have now managed to salvage my life thanks to this book, The art of
stalking Parallel Perception, I live in a unit, have kicked drugs and
I’m beginning to see the stars again.
What these books mean to me, is that in where I was chained now I’m free.
