Only Surrender Avails


Hi everybody - as you may have heard, the Stormy One is withdrawing from the field. There will be one more podcast - the promised "Sorcerers' Revelation." After which, silence. Necessary silence.

I am open to private correspondence, but my daze of public platforming has reached a necessary culmination. The trouble with creating a public persona is that it develops a life of its own; at which point, it must be slain.

Little by little, when all the pieces of Humpty Dumpty are swept away, the dust can settle, and a new image may perhaps arise...?

My thanks meanwhile to all of you who have come on this magikal journey with me and helped make Stormy Weather such an unprecedented success (unprecedented in my experience, that is). The blog and podcast site will remain (for now) as exquisite corpses for the curious to pick through. The forum is also active, tho I'm not presently attending.

Anyone who wants to contact me directly can do so at aeolus_kephas@yahoo.com

All good things come to an end. Timing is everything. Elvis is now leaving the building. The wizard-king is dead. Man Down on the Front Line!!

Let the space remain empty. Do not fill in this blank!

There is no man behind the curtain. There never was. Whatever you saw, was the consequence of your own projection.

The egg cannot comprehend the nature of the omelet.
It can only submit to being cracked.

I have submitted to the cracking.
I suggest you do the same.

Only when surrender is the last remaining option - does freedom become possible.

Good for you. I just discovered you not too long ago and have thoroughly enjoyed your pod casts. But, I agree that blogs & pod casts tend to become unwieldy over time. For what it's worth, you've contributed some wonderful insights and I am thankful to have partaken of your knowledge.

Be very well!

I'm very saddened to see you leave the public spotlight, your voice and persona will be missed, but I know your ideas will live on. Your podcasts and blog were great sources of inspiration for me, opening up new perceptions and giving me new perspectives. I learned quite a bit and made a few friends too. I understand why you must withdraw however, and I know it's for the best. Here's hoping that you return sooner rather than later.

Vyzygoth has just anounced that he is shutting down his radio show and website and will not be doing any more podcats.

I wonder if this portends something - folk closing shop / shutting down (consciously or uncounsciously) because of whats coming.

Now the dread of possibility holds him as its prey, until it can deliver him saved into the hands of faith. In no other place does he find repose . . . he who went through the curriculum of misfortune offered by possi­bility lost everything, absolutely everything, in a way that no one has lost it in reality. If in this situation he did not behave falsely towards possibility, if he did not attempt to talk around the dread which would save him, then he received everything back again, as in reality no one ever did even if he received everything tenfold, for the pupil of pos­sibility received infinity...
