BlogtalkradioBeauty--A PoemPoem--Neptune's Dream
I was teaching a young woman "undine empathy" in two stages. I walked
her through the first exercise and she said, "But I already do this every
I told someone in email yesterday that eventually women will discover
the power that is within them. Because right now this world is in a state
of absolute failure in regard to appreciating or understanding that
feminine power is an equal, co-creator in everything.
It will happen like this: one day a woman will say to me, "I see that
you are healed of your pain and loss. I am glad I could be of help. Now
then, would you like me to dissolve the negativity in the aura of the
Ayatollah or Kim Jong Il II? I can do that tomorrow night if you like."
love freely without barriers, boundaries, or inhibitions.
The first exercise for undine empathy is imagining a sea of water and
that you are at the center. Then imagine that this sea has the astral or
emotional quality of love. Then, as the sea, flow through someone from
head to feet healing, nurturing, and bringing to fulfillment every desire
and need within him or her. As I mentioned, some women already practice
this instinctively. But you will not find any master on earth in any
tradition who has a clue as how to teach this or who would even bother to
teach it if he knew how.
I next had her do the exercise for visualizing a magnetic ball of
energy, that is, for mastering the magnetic fluid. She practiced this on
another person and then on me. When she imagined that I was part of her
aura, that is, part of an intensely cold, magnetic sphere of blue water
that is nurturing, protecting, healing, bringiing to completion, etc. I
felt like I had become the god Neptune.
species. That is what the mermaids seem to be saying to us.
I felt one with the oceans of the earth, as if they were part of my
aura. To experience god consciousness is an astonishing thing. But I
notice that as the god Neptune, I felt I was a part of the history of the
oceans of the earth whereas the human race knows nothing about this--that
is, with identifying with the magnetic fields of the sea. Within this
psychic identification with the waters of the earth, I could barely take
an interest in a race that is oblivious to the beauty and mysteries of
We make antimatter in our labratories. We create particles in our
accelerators that are hotter than exist anywhere else in the universe. We
rewrite DNA. We are now working with wireless electricity and many other
technological marvels. But when it comes to perceiving the energy that
constitutes our own consciousness we are still in the stone age.
My contention in regard to the water element is that if we teach young
women the feminine mysteries, a group of them, maybe thirty or fifty could
eliminate all wars on earth. You see, beauty is more powerful than
antimatter or hydrogen or neutron bombs, or malice and hatred. And it is
more wise than all the masters of the religions of the earth. Its
celebration is one of the purposes behind the creation of this universe.

A Very Short Undine Screenplay
There are reports of undines who take over the bodies of women after the
women die and keeping the body alive live in the form of a human being.
Do undines walk among us as the short video suggests? Stay tuned for
reports and updates.
I haven't shoot this film yet but its in the works.
Poem: The White LightA Poem for WendyStreamMemories from the Future
This is another poem I wrote as a picture poem. A model, Reven, shot the
picture out in Colorado. I wrote the poem for the picture. She put the
poem and the picture together as shown.
I imagine Homer might have said, "Sometimes the gods do things to us
because they are bored, wish to be entertained, to express their humor, or
else because they wish for humans to explore what they can not--to
experience life with a pure, unfathomably deep sense of wonder. How?
Take a young woman. Give her a slow start. But place within her soul
the prophetic abilities of an Isaiah, Daniel, or Nostradamus. But to do
it right, to make her part of her age, give her an interest in
microbiology so that she might make contributions through science to
humanity. Oh yes, and give her a sense of empathy worthy of undines.
Now sit back and watch how her life unfolds. Or, as the Sith Lord said
in Star Wars, "We'll be watching your career with great interest."
I puzzle over these things. I contemplate them. I listen when akasha
offers a message in the form of a person.

Advice to a Young Model at the Beginning of her
I actually said these words to another model who I did a shoot of last

poem for her yet. But the advice I thought was interesting.

A local coven was kind enough to let me join them for the ceremony of
Imbloc, the day of midwinter. It is the return of the Maiden, as the
earth grows warmer. The goddess celebrated is Brigid, who is also the
goddess of poets. During this celebration, the high priestess had each
person take a card from the Tarot deck of Archangels to determine that
individual's spiritual path for the coming year.
I drew the card, Aengus--Twin Flame. Aengus, or Aengus Og, is the god
of youth, poetry, and love. The high priestess looked at my 61 years and
with a tone of pure puzzlement in her voice asked, "Are you looking for a
Twin Flame?" I replied, "A bard is always looking for a Twin Flame." I
should have said, "A good bard is always looking for a Twin Flame. A
great bard finds a Twin Flame in every women he meets."
The next day a model emailed from Arizona saying she was coming this
way. I looked at her on site portfolio and so write the poem below, for
Jillian. But just after the ceremony, I wrote the poem below on the
magnetic and electric fluids.

A Sailor's Poem
Some have mistaken this young woman to be "just another model" and
therefore of no consequence. I would argue contrary to that position that
most wise men on earth will never in their entire lives as they walk this
planet meet a woman who has her natural affinity for the sea--they
will not sense it; they will not dream it; they can not even imagine such
a thing to be.
But you see, I read auras and I study the innermost dreams at the core
of the woman's being BEFORE I do a photo shoot. This gives me a slight
advantage over the wise men of the earth. If you work with undines you
discover that seeing the future is one of their gifts. My art is a study
of the future spiritual path that a woman is free to follow. For indeed,
one of the powers of beauty is to make your deepest dreams real.
Now it is true that it is easy to look at this picture through the eyes
of lust. I sympathize. But beauty is far, far more powerful than lust.
When I look at her, I also see divine missions that are unfulfilled. The
eye sees more than the heart knows, said William Blake. But in your heart
you will surely find the keys to your destiny if you bother to take them
and use them to open the door to divinity.

The extended poem
Hagiel, Bardon mentions, is not the archangel but the head of the spirits
of the sphere of Venus.
I have the habit, you may notice, of writing poems just after a shoot
with a model. This is the fifth shoot and so the fifth poem for this
Thanks to extensive, detailed correspondence with someone who reads my
poetry, I can point out these poems are "focusing" exercises. For example,
a shoot depends for success on some chemistry between the photographer and
the model. The other's energy gets inside of you. My poem is simply my
describing the actual physical sensations within my body of that energy,
finding words, phrases, or metaphors for it, and then entering a state of
total receptivity to check on the accuracy as the images vibrate with the
sensations and feelings.
One further point: what I see that I know of no one else being able to
see is the full masculine and the full feminine in their unity. I can make
this statement because my book, Undines, is an indictment of all religions
and magical traditions on earth. Namely, though they may know earth, air,
and fire, they know next to nothing about the mysteries of water. But you
can decide this for yourself if you have time and inclination. I have
spared no effort in my journey into the domain of the queens of undines.
It is obvious to me that their beauty has not yet appeared on earth.
And so my global casting call, to find women who can embody what has
never before been seen. Of all the planets in this quadrant of the galaxy,
the earth is perhaps the most beautiful. Yet it appears the human race
does not yet taste this ecstasy.

The Goddess, the Merman, and the Cup. The Goddess is the Goddess of the
Earth who shows up in my yet to be published The Fall of Atlantis

religion" mentioned by Bardon in his description of one of the spirits of
the sphere of Mercury.
The Goddess, the Merman, and the Cup
August 24, 2008
As I said above, you find the woman inside you--it is tantra. In all the
serious magic I do, I join without separation with any being in the
universe. It is a privilege extended to those who love.
I remember a week long seminar, ages ago, I attended run by one of the
Dalai Lama's translators. At the end, we walked around the room slowly
and stopped one by one in front each person. And then we said, "You are
the __ in me," that is, we saw each other person as part of oneself.
I realize most Western traditions do not do this. They have no knowledge
of the study of omnipresence. But in all the poetry I write, for a
microsecond, I am one with the heart of the person who inspires the poem.
Those who are weak or profane can not even dream of this level of
oneness with others much less with spirits or the universe.
I was shooting today several scenes in a movie I am making. One of the
models/actresses I met for the first time on location. On the freeway
going home I wrote this poem.
August 23, 2008
The power of women is captured in part by combining the light and the
dark. If you only stay with the bright, shiny side, the image can capture
the beauty but not the mystery of femininity much less the power in women.
The Dalai Lama's translator once said to me, "You are the most "empty"
person I hage ever met." He meant "empty" as in "Prajnaparamita." It is
really nice to run into a model who knows "emptiness" from the core of
The Prajnaparamita meditation is one of the most important meditations
for peacemakers and for my spiritual work. It appears to be totally
outside of the consciousness of Western magical traditions.
Akasha/emptiness/Prajnaparamita is not something you talk about or
discuss. It is something you do and end up being. I will be doing a rather
extensive presentation, both serious and humorous (since humor helps
promote clarity), of this divine state of awareness in the near future.
Two pictures actually: one, the human being and two, the divinity. What
seems to be a negative or dark emotion from the point of view of an
individual's personality can also be an awareness of pure transcendence.
Blending or harmonizing the two, the personal and the divine, within
oneself is always high art.
One picture--one poem (and one animation):
Poem: Prajnaparamita: Mother of All
Think of the following as a brief meditation on the appearance of
Prajnaparamita inside your own mind. Its tantra: find the girl, or the
enlightened being, inside your self.
"Form is empty, emptiness is form, Emptiness is not other than form, form
is also not other than emptiness." From the Heart Sutra-- Click here for full

This is a two minute clip, a scene from a short independent film still
being written. It is storyboard quality. It is fiction though there is a
spiritual anthropologist wandering around here somewhere.
Plot: Previously, two hit men pursue their prey into Michigan Central
Station, the grand old abandoned 16 story building near downtown Detroit.
An independent film is being shot in the Great Hall of the station. A few
other photographers are also in the building.
Our model "sees" and interacts with dead people as well as channeling
in an artistic manner any spirit or being she wishes to embody. Some think
she is "just another model." But others notice her uncanny abilities and
seek answers to their questions.

For a Brief Commentary on the Sermon on the
These Beatitudes don't need pretty music and warm and tender pictures in
order to be communicated correctly. The words are spoken with "a voice of
thunder, a tongue of lightning, and a heart of fire." Try to "hear" the
words and appreciate the soul of the model who, like a prism, reflected
the colors of the spiritual light spectrum through herself.
I started writing them from the first moment I met the model on
location. It was a nude shoot--no nude model, then no Beatitudes. Try to
keep that at the forefront of your mind. See Michigan Central Station
below for what I wrote hours after the shoot.

modeling, and runway. She is the best photographer of women I have ever

In discussing this video with the model, I told her it "accomplished my
purposes of joining the ordinary, everyday world with the world of awe and
wonder, the personal with the archetypal, the sensual with the
transcendent, and darkness with light."
Bryce, the director of mpw.com, the photography school, asked
me, How did the shoot go?
I said, It was a three "Oh God" shoot.
Bryce said, A three "Oh God" shoot must be a good thing, huh?

of God. McKee replied, Michelle Pfeiffer is proof of the existence of

Expressions I, Studies of the Feminine
Spirit (Over age 18 only)
I describe briefly and in sets thirty-nine different "expressions" of one
model at one shoot. There was little or no "artistic direction" of this
model. She came up with these positions and expressions by herself.
Ultimately, I am asking my models briefly to put aside their egos and
identities so as to express a receptivity that is so giving it has command
over everything because it is the source that gives birth to all of life.
I take it this is a femininity that our world knows nothing about.
I discuss elsewhere the nature of the magnetic fluid or the essence of
the feminine spirit in my article on Problems in the Study of Magic, the
Magnetic Fluid. The significance in part of displaying a large range of
emotional expressions is that the presentation allows an individual the
opportunity to bring together diverse aspects of him or herself.
As I wrote the model after the next shoot, "That was really fun, fun as
in I was able to bring together parts of myself that have never met."
The essence of the magnetic fluid is that it can encompass the soul of any
being within itself, renewing, transforming, and restoring it to life.

Michigan Central Station (Over age 18 only)
This is a video poem that I wrote for the model and the location from a
photo shoot workshop. For more on the location, see Wikipedia.com
This video poem continues to explore the powers of the feminine spirit.
It is a collective pathworking. And it is tantra: instead of using an
image from Tibetan Buddhism, I use a living woman whose qualities of
personality and spirit enable the viewer to undertake an inner journey.
I have had complaints about the quality of my photography and questions
about whether this project has any validity. One of the best
photographers in the country has given his ok for this video poem and the
model, also a photographer, loves the poem and the photos. I quote:
"That movie ROCKS."
For those who really don't "get it," (especially professional
photographers who apparently have been brainwashed in some secret
concentration camp in N. Korea--becaues they are unable to "see" a picture
as a symbol rather than as a literal representation, much less figure out
how to "contemplate" a picture) the urban decay setting of an abandoned
building "symbolizes" the way in which our world is hostile to genuine
feminine consciousness: "time is racing to destroy this momument."

This is a short video shot near Sandy Beach on Oahu, Hawaii. I wrote the
poem the night before the shoot for this particular model. It represents
her spiritual journey in life. I see a great mystery unfolding. I can't
help what others "see." The next day we made the video of the poem. The
vision at the end is from the story of the undine Isaphil.
