The Golden Bowl

Does the eagle know what is in the pit?
Or wilt thou go ask the mole?
Can wisdom be put in a silver rod,
Or love in a golden bowl?

William Blake, the immortal poet of myth and mysticism, wrote Thel’s Motto in 1789. Blake has a way of asking questions and never expecting answers, for they are obvious once the cob webs are cleared from our minds. The eagle in us already knows what’s in the pit, there’s no need for us to search, That exercise results in self-separation, which is the dis-ease that creates all disease.
