THE MOUNTAINEER

Consciousness is a symptom of disease.
All that moves well moves without will.
All skillfulness, all strain, all intention is contrary to
ease.
Practise a thousand times, and it becomes difficult;
a thousand thousand, and it becomes easy; a
thousand thousand times a thousand thousand,
and it is no longer Thou that doeth it, but It that
doeth itself through thee. Not until then is that
which is done well done.
Thus spoke FRATER PERDURABO as he leapt
from rock to rock of the moraine without ever
casting his eyes upon the ground.

COMMENTARY ({Lambda-Beta})

This title is a mere reference to the metaphor of the
last paragraph of the chapter.
Frater P., as is well known, is a mountaineer.
This chapter should be read in conjunction with
Chapters 8 and 30.
It is a practical instruction, the gist of which is
easily to be apprehended by comparatively short practice
of Mantra-Yoga.
A mantra is not being properly said as long as the
man knows he is saying it. The same applies to all other
forms of Magick.
