Asclepius - The consequences of ignoring destiny
Type of Spiritual Experience
Ignoring the ‘body of fate’ or destiny we have been allocated completely does have its own rather odd form of consequence - life often seems to be extremely hard work, an endless struggle ….the body of fate is not to be ignored however resentful we may later feel about the task given ...........
A description of the experience
Asclepius – Hermes Trismegistus
Scorn for the vices of the whole world and a cure for those vices – comes from understanding the divine plan upon which all things have been based. But when ignorance and folly persist, all vices thrive and wound the soul with incurable disorders. Tainted and corrupted by them, the soul grows inflamed as if poisoned – except the souls of those who have sovereign remedy of learning and understanding
and another interesting view
Olaf Stapledon – Star Maker
Seemingly these creatures were intended to work together to produce harmony which he had conceived for their cosmos, but instead, each sought to mould the whole cosmos in accordance with its own form. The creatures fought desperately and with self righteous conviction. When they were damaged, they suffered pain. This seemingly was something which the young star maker had never experienced or conceived. With rapt, surprised interest ... he watched the antics and the sufferings of his first living creatures, till by their strife and slaughter they had reduced the cosmos to chaos.
