Abraxas

A long time ago, I felt intelligent.  I was able to think through new and complex ideas with reasonable swiftness.

I feel old now.  It takes me a long time to think about something.  I don’t think: I contemplate.

Found a copy of Hermann Hesse’s Demian at a garage sale.  Had never read it.  Am completely caught up by the concept of Abraxas – of which I’d heard mention in a really well-taught religion class I took in university.  It seems that, in the back of my mind, I knew about this; it’s familiar.  Or maybe I’m just ready to think about it.

Jung’s Seven Sermons to the Dead should be required reading for Anglicans.  If you’re gonna be a Protestant, be an educated Protestant.
