Don Juan, Aleister Crowley, nirvana, Valhalla, the Holy Grail, holiness, and the Graal

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas




“You see, all of us go through the same doubts.

We are afraid of being mad; unfortunately for us, of course,

all of us are already mad.”

don Juan



Aleister Crowley furthers the idea that holiness and foolishness are one, stating: “The connection between foolishness and holiness is traditional. It is no sneer that the family nitwit had better go into the church. In the East the madman is believed to be ‘possessed’, a holy man or prophet. So deep is this identity that it is actually embedded in the language. ‘Silly’ means empty- the Vacuum of Air- Zero-¼And the word is from German selig, holy, blessed. It is the innocence of the Fool which most strongly characterizes him. ¼The Great Fool is definite doctrine. The world is always looking for a savior, and the doctrine in question is philosophically more than a doctrine; it is a plain fact.”

That is, the Pearl of Great Price, The Holy Grail, the Vision of God, Nirvana, Valhalla, Heaven, or Salvation, call it what you will, it will not be found until the individual forgets who they are, and what they are looking for. Then they shall find it. For, as Aleister Crowley relates: “Men smote me; then, perceiving that I was but a Pure Fool, they let me pass. Thus and not otherwise I came to the Temple of the Graal.”
