Three Paths to Light – Sue Vincent

Reblogged from The Silent Eye:

In the early days of The Silent Eye, I thought it would be a good idea if Steve, Stuart and I, as the three directors of the school, shared a little about how we had come to work together. Our journeys were very different, yet shared some odd commonalities. As the accounts have languished in the vaults of the Silent Eye for a while, I thought it might be a good idea to republish them here…

Are we there yet?

My grandfather gave me his annotated copy of the Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune when I was 15. “This is the only magical book that you will ever need,” he told me. “But you’ll fill a good many bookshelves before you get there.” He was right.

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both.
    And be one traveler, long I stood.
    And looked down one as far as I could.

    (If wishes were fishes we would all have nets!)
