13 - Stasimon 5
Blessed be the Divine Reflection.
awakened through the tools of transformation.
Blessed be the power of the mind
which when harnessed with the power of the heart
gives the spirit two mighty legs with which to surmount any challenge.
The light of wisdom is within everybody,
an eternal flame,
which can bring forth right speech and action.
Let this light shine!
Iakhe! Iakhe! Iakhe!
Blessed be the archetype of Bacchus, Iacchus and Dionysus.
The ancient Tao of the far east teaches us the way of freedom and responsibility.
Balance, Harmony, this is the way of enlightened society.
We take joy in the education of our youth,
denying none the best that our nation has to offer
because we know the strength of our nation is found through nurturing the seeds of our youth.
Iakhe! Iakhe! Iakhe! Blessed be twin flames of wisdom and creativity.
We guard the innocence of our youth
and through truth.
We teach them the interweaving spiral of life
so that they understand the strands of creation.
The ladder of life.
These are the ancient truths of Phanes and Proteganos.
The primordials who ventured forth from the soup of creation
and through time, Chronus,
they inevitably gave birth to all life.
We are not an ignorant nation!
Our land is rooted in the universal truths.
Therefore we do not place one religion over another,
We teach our children that all are brothers.
The way of the fundamental is the way of death
and destruction to the core concepts of human rights & wisdom.
Humanity has never prospered within the confines of religion.
The higher way is the celebration of diversity
and the preservation of equality.
Iakhe! Iakhe! Iakhe!
Blessed be the brothers Apollo and Dionysus
who teach us
the way of discipline
hand in hand
with passion and relaxation.
Apollo, God of the Sun, dreams, reason and reliability.
Dionysus, God of the wine, intoxication and creativity.
When these archetypes are balanced within,
we manifest harmony,
the primordial DivineUnity.
A little wine is good for the heart.
A lot of wine destroys our bodies.
A little wine loosens the tongue.
A little more wine brings forth silly words and actions
A lot of wine can result in the absence of mind
and even the destruction of beloved beings and sacred objects.
How can one turn poison into medicine?
Through the sacred practice,
through the tools of transformation,
we can transform ourselves and all conditions and even heal the nation.
Treat, treat, and move your hands and feet.
Fields do not get planted by sitting in the garden,
water does not get drawn if you never leave the kitchen table.
The work does not get done if we only think about it.
