The Book of AntiochAs Experienced through the Power in the Lines
The Book of AntiochAt Antioch College, I was a student. The school closed. It was very sad, heart wrenchingand morally engaging for many people associated with the school. The University brokemany contracts with people and was not held to their specific performance to date.This book is a testament to the mystical, spiritual and existential beauty, which manystudents and teachers engaged with in the Antioch College's final years. The book ismeant to be a collection of experiential stories, mystical experiences, and poems written by Parker Emmerson partially during his time living in and experiencing the naturalworldview and the miracles within it and beyond. However, the book includes other writings from different time periods and is written with the recognition of the author’serrors and repentence from actions during the time at Antioch. The book takes elementsfrom my life, but it is written by the teachings themselves.Drugs and plant spirits were ingested by human entities living in and around a deep Glencarved by glaciers from ancient times before recorded history. This area grew into a deepand mysterious layer of trails, bridges, paths and stones. There are caves and secret areas.Runes were carved from the natural erosion and Ruin of the Earth. By ruin, I do not meanthat it was destroyed completely. Ruin is that which changes the Earth and extractsmaterial to create form. I apologize if there is too much focus on my own experiences. Ihope that they can relate to yours and that they attain some sort of coherent validity withsome ideological similarities to your own experience of life.The teachings of this book are:1.Yestoday2.Doghood3.Ruinmoor 4.Uniquood5.PirrowhidLet each of these approximate a transcendental sense receptor. They are placed in theorder of a list, but one does not trump another in fundamental import and achievement of sanctity in human kindness and relations.The Door to Stop Focus is the final chapter of this mystical dissertation on the spiritualityof being.
:Yestoday means saying yes to your life today in its beauty, resounding spiritual love fromthe Creator and continual creation, which grows around you, dying each year to returnagain. Learning about this prepares us to find grace in the next life.A group of people ate mushrooms and went to the fountain at Yellow Springs, OH. Thereis a legend at this spring that says that whoever drinks the water from the fountain shallalways return. The water is rich in iron and makes the springs orange colored. Thisexperience is one of the first potent mystical experiences in which all of the participantsexperienced the same phenomenon. There was a unified and collective experience of a pile of colored paper falling from the sky, which everyone could perceive and by whichthey were surrounded. Some bent down and took up the colored paper in their hands. If they had so asked, God would have transformed the paper into a mystical creature togallop or soar through the air. "If we could be essential, we would be set free." Yestodaymeans the life-world as a progressive and essential continuation of creation in everynoema(moment). The paper fell to the ground from out of the sky, and it was clear thatthe children had returned home somewhat, however, they will not be home entirely untilthe smallest and most courageous of them is home as well. The life world is that whichattends to immediate experience of the world. The beauty of the color of the leaves wasimmense. Past experiences are not still in Yestoday. If it would happen to you with someother people you know, when they are experiencing it in a different, but similar way toyou, it would be a Yestoday experience. If we truly experience Yestoday, our eyes shall beopened to a magnificent source of Hylistic mana, which is purely accessible throughChrist, thanks, and glory unto the continual Creator who is with us always.Yestoday is a movement away from yesteryear, however it does not say that we shall notremember it.To be the death and birth measure of life- last place his own. This idea arises from theforward-backward mesh of two different meanings. The essence of Yestoday could beattempted to be described in a poem I wrote that goes like this:Formless Unstructor Do you realize it right now?Let's dance! Not mind,Learn to live,How to get back?Get back!Together we sing a vibrant mandala,
