THE SETH MEDITATIONS An Addendum to
 Activating the Spiritual Organs
.

On Michaelmas Day 1994, shortly before the Seth Meditations began, I set out to paint a simple geometric work, in essence a vesica balanced on an associated crescent. I thought at first that the motivation to paint this picture lay in the geometric nicety that the pattern expresses. But I was drawn to the reproduction of Dürer’s
The Virgin on the Crescent 
, which is on the cover of my copy of
The Chymical Wedding
. I was aware then that this event signalled the  beginning of a new spiritual task, one that would involve ‘virgin water / light: pristine’. I will place these images here at the beginning of this account of the Seth meditations: The Seth Meditations are unusual in that they involved a set ritual, so that all the disclosures had their source in this ritual. I had brought three beechnuts with me from Brighton, harvested from an exceptionally fine tree in Preston Park. The ritual involved placing one nut on the tip of my extended tongue, and one each in the centre of the palms of my left and

My hands were extended before me at waist height, palms upwards and open, but they would move at times during the meditations in response to the sensations experienced in each: weight, heat, lightness and the like. I faced west, eyes closed, and I concentrated inwardly in a relaxed way. Notes were made immediately after each session. The meditations form a thread through much other spiritual activity, but I was aware when each meditation impended, though sometimes the notice was extremely short. Something of the purpose and meaning of the meditations has been discussed in
 Activating the Spiritual Organs
, so I will restrict myself here largely to giving details of the Seth meditations and other closely associated experiences. The Seth meditations themselves were prefaced by a short series of meditations in which a specific preparation was made. On the 10

 October 1994 I was made aware of the origin of the beechnuts I would use in the Seth meditations: that they came from the

 Garden in Preston Park, Brighton. On 14

 I saw one of the trees, ‘The Tree’, stripped to its bare form and understood that ‘we glimpse heaven in trees, and in flowers death’. I cried ‘votive tears’ then, ‘lamenting the veil’. I The first Seth meditation then took place on 4
