The Sundering of Feri

My work is clear, and is as it has always been: To spread the Promethean fire of liberation to those who can see it, feel it, touch it, and taste it. My mandate is to offer as many people as possible what small things I can pass on that will be of help in changing their relationships to their lives, their work, their Gods, and the cosmos. Simultaneously, I do and will train smaller and smaller groups of people in deeper and deeper expressions of the unfolding Mystery. Why will these groups grow smaller? They will self-select, because hard, daily work is required and most people are not ready or willing to put in that sort of effort and self-scrutiny, and maintaining continuous connection to the Mystery requires all of those, and more. Perhaps it is in this latter statement that those I am placing in the Piscean camp—and who would call themselves "the Mystery tradition"—share common ground with me.

The way I teach and practice is not for everyone, nor should it be. We live in a cosmos of great variety for a reason. Multiplicity is both a challenge and a blessing. In the end, I am Feri—though I no longer teach within the tradition—and also I am of this changing world. To those who need to retreat under the mound, you may do so, and I will strive to respect your choices. Meanwhile, you will find me standing out in the bracing winds of change. May the way be open!
