Seen and Unseen…

*

We see the other’s body clearly.

Lips move.

Eyes open and shut.

Lines of mouth and face oscillate.

The other’s body expresses itself as a being in action.

Yet the other, itself, remains unseen.

*

The other does not see its body in action.

If it looks in a mirror it immediately begins to invent itself.

The other, though, sees our body clearly.

Yet we to it, as it to us, remain unseen.

*

If our unseen sides could be seen,

we would live in a new world.

*

But we live in the seen world,

with its plethora of distinct misunderstandings.

NUANCES OF NICOLL

The Keys to Heaven

Stuart France

Available via Amazon

Psychologist, Maurice Nicoll studied under Fourth Way exponents G.I Gurdjieff and  P.D. Ouspensky, and presented his own philosophy in a series of works published during the Mid Twentieth Century.

In his seminal work, Living Time… he makes no bones about insisting that the psychological states and concepts that he is expounding, and their utilisation, are ancient and stretch back through Christianity, Judaism, the Greek Philosophers and on into the mysterious climes of Pre-Dynastic Egypt…

In re-presenting these ideas as a series of poetic explorations, author and essayist, Stuart France uncovers a series of links with the Mediaeval Traditions of the Northmen, and the Matter of Britain!

What is the original story of our week? How does the moon harrow hell? Prepare to be enthralled, entertained, educated, and enlightened, as new light is shed on the enigmatic figures of Wotan, Merlin, and King Arthur.

They do not write books like this anymore, if indeed they ever did!
