…Then… as the melding became complete… in a shift both more terrifying, yet more beautiful, than any she had felt before… she looked out through the eyes of the fire bird; her soul and that of the great bird… had connected… and now moved… as one…
…“But how wise is wisdom?” Wen has taken exception to my theorising this time and I am not sure I can answer her question. I am not sure I even understand it.
“Well, there are different degrees of wisdom…”
“Seventy-Two isn’t it, which is to say… nine…again”
Wen ignores my numerological speculations and continues, “And if you are following the precepts of our system then there are at least three and possibly four types of wisdom which we could gloss as body wisdom, heart wisdom and mind wisdom. Each is valid and each really is unsurpassable for its own sphere although it is possible to get beyond them because where two spheres are operative together, their combined wisdom must be of a higher degree than one sphere alone…”
“And where all three or four spheres, are acting in conjunction we get harmony and the highest wisdom.”
“…Which we should probably call intelligence, rather than wisdom.”
“I think I can answer your question now.”
“Wisdom is as wise as it needs to be.” Wen smiles but says nothing.
Adventures in Sacred Chromatography
Sue Vincent & Stuart France
The Initiate is the first book in the Triad of Albion series, an adventure in the landscape of the sacred heart of England… Albion… a place where giants dance in stone, where trees whisper secrets and ancient sites are layered deep in the earth.
“We are… without question…going to get locked up!”
A trip to the ancient White Horse at Uffington, carved into the chalk in millennia past… a track, five thousand years old, that leads through the mists to the magic of Wayland’s Smithy and the gnarled stones of the circle at Rollright… Overhead the hawks wheel… It is just supposed to be a day out in the landscape for Don and Wen.
But a chance visit to a medieval church leads the friends to the discovery of a strange phenomenon; a rainbow of coloured light that defies explanation….
Their adventures take them down the straight paths of the leys and the more convoluted ways of myth, legend and symbolism, as they explore the strange coincidences that will lead them to the Feathered Seer and the Ninth Knight….
…and to the Riddle of the Initiate…. Will you solve it?
“…I like to classify and label things up neatly. Those analogies that I can think of would be books like `The Zelator’ and perhaps even `The Da Vinci Code’, but it is a stretch. `The Initiate’ defies being boxed, labelled or classified and probably rightly so, as it is a work of brilliance.” Dr G.M.Vasey, Author of ‘The Last Observer’ and ‘Inner Journeys’
“Layers of mystic delight.” R. Amber
“Although a very mature, serious and in many ways learned study and in no way to imply a simplistic form, there is also about it the originality, freshness, zest and sheer joie de vivre of some of the much beloved adventure stories of my childhood – an irresistible and all too rare combination.” B.Terrier
