Se7en Paths For Se7en Roses

It is best I douse this flame to con­serve what oxy­gen remains…

Sit­ting in this gloom one has lit­tle choice but to reflect upon one’s existence…

Se7en
Se7en sec­onds of sen­tience shone
Se7en splin­ters of light on
Se7en spir­its of self in
Se7en heav­enly halls hold­ing
Se7en mys­ti­cal metaphors man­i­fest­ing
Se7en cal­li­graphic characters

 

 

The se7en cal­li­graphic char­ac­ters of which I speak when cor­rectly con­fig­ured within the con­stel­la­tion of the orig­i­nal Ara­bic alpha­bet con­fer upon the keeper the abil­ity to ascend and access answers to all pos­si­ble ques­tions in existence.

What I find exceed­ingly inter­est­ing is that these se7en cal­li­graphic char­ac­ters were lost…no cor­rec­tion, hid­den In se7en secret locations.

Now you may won­der how I know this, that is not of impor­tance
What is important…is that you lis­ten to what I have to say in the short time I have to say it
For the air grows thin with the pass­ing of each second…and I grow…tired…

Caligraphic char3

Cal­li­graphic char­ac­ter one is located in Cairo, point of inter­sec­tion, lat­i­tude thirty degrees north, lon­gi­tude thirty one degrees east

The cen­tral point of the Earth’s land mass, also the host site of the Great Pyra­mid
Char­ac­ter one is fabled to be located within the pyramid’s miss­ing cap­stone
Find this char­ac­ter and you will access a por­tal to the first heav­enly plane

Se7en
Se7en sec­onds of sen­tience shone
Se7en splin­ters of light on
Se7en spir­its of self in
Se7en heav­enly halls hold­ing
Se7en mys­ti­cal metaphors man­i­fest­ing
Se7en cal­li­graphic characters

Globe at Night

Within the first plane you will per­ceive your pre­pu­bes­cent spir­i­tual self as you were…before your mito­chon­dr­ial DNA manip­u­lated your spirit, lead­ing to a meta­mor­pho­sis within this earthly plane.

Through the por­tal you will see spir­its that are about to be born souls, in domains unfath­omable to your com­pre­hen­sion
Be wary not to dis­turb what occurs in this plane
Merely observe and be aware of your orig­i­nal name

Ahh…I tire of this con­stant talk­ing! But it must be done, so let us continue…

The sec­ond cal­li­graphic char­ac­ter is to be found underground

In the secret dia­mond mine beneath Mosi-oa-Tunya,
Com­monly known as the Vic­to­ria Falls

You will see a refracted rain­bow radi­at­ing crys­tallised colours at the cen­tre of the falls, mark­ing the inner chamber…

Se7en
Se7en sec­onds of sen­tience shone
Se7en splin­ters of light on
Se7en spir­its of self in
Se7en heav­enly halls hold­ing
Se7en mys­ti­cal metaphors man­i­fest­ing
Se7en cal­li­graphic characters

Within the inner cham­ber is sus­pended a sparkling dia­mond
With reputed prophetic pow­ers
Known to have dis­com­bob­u­lated desirous goldig­gers
And thus dri­ven them into delir­ium
You will find the sec­ond cal­li­graphic char­ac­ter engraved on the sur­face of the dia­mond
Caus­ing the sacred stone to vibrate at a fre­quency that when touched…

Will recon­fig­ure your atomic struc­ture to oscil­late on the sec­ond heav­enly plane

Where mat­ter becomes attuned to every thought in your brain

 
Long have you been told ‘as a man thin­keth so shall he be’
On this plane you shall dis­cover the man­i­fes­ta­tions of your own mentality

Your mind will mould mat­ter as if it were plasticine

Bring­ing forth your par­adise or bring­ing forth the obscene
But true to your nature all your thoughts will be seen
From your fears to your faults to the qual­i­ties of your dreams

Ahh…the hot sand trick­les through ever more quickly…filling this con­fined space in which I find myself…the time of my demise draws near…

 
Should you sur­vive the chal­lenges of the sec­ond heav­enly plane
You will find your­self at the foot of “Waw An Namus“
An extinct Vol­cano deep in the sun-cooked sands of the Sahara
 
You will have to acquaint your­self with mag­netic north
By mon­i­tor­ing the move­ment of the Sun
Once clear on your bearings

You must travel two miles east through the hot desert sands

Until arriv­ing at a lone Aca­cia tree
Sur­rounded by strange skele­tal struc­tures of spec­i­mens unknown

Se7en

Se7en sec­onds of sen­tience shone

Se7en splin­ters of light on

Se7en spir­its of self in

Se7en heav­enly halls holding

Se7en mys­ti­cal metaphors manifesting

Se7en cal­li­graphic characters

Caligraphic char28

To access the third heav­enly plane you must embrace the Aca­cia tree

Twist­ing its thorns in tan­dem in the swel­ter­ing desert heat

For when the cor­rect com­bi­na­tion of thorns are twisted

Its flow­ers will imme­di­ately blossom

Par­tic­u­lar petals will align them­selves to form the third cal­li­graphic character

By breath­ing only the pollen from these flowers

You shall tran­scend to the third heav­enly plane

But beware the booby traps beneath your feet…

For the skele­tons are not there per chance

Each time you twist or turn a thorn on the tree

Its roots will trig­ger under­ground activities

Such that you may be sucked beneath the sands

Cocooned in a closed chamber…as befell me

And suf­fer in anonymity…until like I…you die!
