The Quesiti


The pathway of the Quesiti is a pathway towards the re-awakening of the strength and power inherent in every human being by means of inner transformation and direct action in the material world. It is a pathway that everyone can follow because it is not based upon external forces but on those within the individual.

FIRST QUESITO
a) Complete and responsible action.
c) Purity of Intenti.
b) To live the synchronic moment to the full.

Highest expression
Free will consciously directed.
Action
The atom moves.

SECOND QUESITO

a) Constancy and continuity of action
b) Continuous choice instant by instant to give substance to the first Quesito.
c) To keep one’s word at all cost

Breadth
Temporality.
Continuity of action.
The atom designs.

THIRD QUESITO

a) Inner transformation and
b) rebirth to the sacred
c) through new logic and a qualatitive leap (naturally directed by conscious choice)

a)b)c) formation of a new people and
a)b)c) of a new culture.

Depth
Evolutionary change or transformation.
Trasformation (small illuminations).
The atom defines form.
FOURTH QUESITO
Purely feminine.

a) Non-egoistical conscious availabilty of the self.
b) Dignified perfection and complete respect for the feminine.
c) To be an element of union.

Weight - Content - Density - Substance.
Conscious differentiation (of roles).
The woman stabilizes.
Stabilization (intermediate Illumination).
The atom fills form.


FIFTH QUESITO
(Purely masculine)

a) On-going stability and firmness.
b) Harmonious inner revolution.
c) Intelligent discovery and rediscovery of habits and their reconsideration in order to conquer (the conditioning) of the three rivers.

Movement (Continuous filling and emptying)
Adaption by the exterior to the interior
The atom renews
transformation (Medium illumination)
the atom redisigns in divine thought.
SIXTH QUESITO

a) Inversion of Quesiti 4 and 5. The first of the two becomes masculine and the other becomes feminine.

b) Union generates life. Ritual.

point (b) is divided into three parts:
1) Born out of silence.
2) It makes everything grow and mature. Prayer.
3) Everyone adjusts to the eco-system of the pure I, by the discoveries present in the previous Quests.
Definition of point (b): individual and shared syncretism.

c) Immagination and fantasy: in the sense of art - life.
d) Generosity, goodwill, form, action, formation, education.

The form, the object is now alive; the next step consists of making it real in the mother and echo worlds, making its essence denser in such a way as to render it alchemical, therefore obtain the Spirit of Life, just as life has been obtained from form: the atom of living God, generosity, goodwill and altruism are spin offs of this mecchanism.

e) The search for unification in a human form is the measure (dimension) between things: spiritual fractals.
SEVENTH QUESITO

Uncertainty
Doubt
…as Dogma?
Adaptability


Everything is not as it is or as it could be…..
(nothing is as it seems)
Destruction of certainty
To edify every existence through evolution


We do not posess the soul, it posseses us


We are a point of the all that comprises all.
The non- diversity of Form

The way of the Quesiti that ends here allows one not to lose oneself but find oneself.
The partiality discovered in everything perceived and of every perceiver does not lead to an indifference of action but leads to solidity constructed instant by instant.
Considering with greater clarity and less egoism the chosen existential objectives.
The Quesiti makes sense only after the development of the previous six, just as each one is completed by virtue of its place in the order.

THEMES
Time as a convention is not real.
The material world is empty if Form is empty.
The I of the perceiver is a quasi-real, individual mathematics vary with mood.
The senses limit perception.

"I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire,
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hym of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the Lord."

Ps. 40:1-3

"Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a pharisee and the other a tax collector. The pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men - robbers, evildoers, adulterers - or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'
"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'
I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted."

Luke 18:10-14

Then Jesus said to his host, "When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors. If you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the ressurection of the righteous."

Luke 14:12-14

"Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with whcih you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occassions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."

Eph. 6:13-18

One of the things I've become aware of over the last year or so is the way I have listened to "the accuser." That voice that accuses others of being this, that, or another thing, always in a negative light, and in a way that somehow deserves a response from me to "correct" them in some way. That voice that tells me I deserve more or better, or more recognition, or a better reward, or a better this or more of that. the voice that tells me God won't do the things he has said he will do, that my faith is in vain, that I can only trust myself. The voice of restlessness, discontent. It distracts me from God's voice of peace and mercy when I let it; it distracts me from those things that are noble and good; it distracts me from being thankful and appreciative. I have discovered that whenever I find myself anything but happy, joyous, and free, it is becuase I am listening to this other voice. The more I become aware of this process, the quicker I am able to turn to God in the Spirit and prayer, and the sooner I can return to peace and joy. it is not about others or what they are doing, or the current situation, or events around me; it is about me and what I am doing and my orientation toward God.

"Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
'Now have come the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
the authority of his Christ.
For the accuser of our brothers,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down.'"

Rev. 12:10

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgement, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect inl ove.
We love becuase he first loved us. If anyone says,"I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother."

I John4:16-21

"Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
or with the breadth of his hand marked marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales or the hills in a balance?
Who has understood the mind of the Lord,
or instructed him as his counselor?
Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him,
and who taught him the right way?
Who was it that taught him knowledge
or showed him the path of understanding?"

Is. 40:12-14

Sometimes life is just good.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in times of trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though the waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging."
Selah

Ps. 46:1-3

When times are good, be happy;

I hear 'ya dogboy. My son and i have had this conversation about what we will do when we get to heaven. We agreed we would go flying, just like superman.....so who knows? Maybe we're closer than we think.

"Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land
and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord
and he will give you the desires of your heart."

I am so thankful for my wife and all that she has meant and means to me. I really can't imagine life without her.

"How beautirful you are and how pleasing, O love, with your delights!
Your stature is like that of the palm,
and your breasts like clusters of fruit.
I said, "I will climb the plam tree;
I will take hold of its fruit.
May your breasts be like the clusters of the vine,
the fragrance of your breath like apples,
and your mouth like the best wine."

Song of Songs 7:7-9

"Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters;
and you who have no money, come, buy and eat.
Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare."


Is. 55:1-2

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord.
"As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and snow come down from heaven,
and do not return to it without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
So is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."

Is 55:8-11

The deputy walks on hard nails, the preacher rides a mount
Nothing really matters much, it's doom alone that counts
And the one-eyed undertaker blows a futile horn
"Come in," she said, "I'll give 'ya
Shelter from the storm."

I miss Bobo.

He also said, "This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain - first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, becuase the harvest has come."

Mark 4:28-29

"Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we possess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may recieve mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."

Heb. 4:14-16

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and llet us run with perseverence the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart."

Heb. 12:1-3

"And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jepthah, David, Samuel and the prophets, who through faith conquered kingdoms, adminstered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. Women recieved back their dead, raised to life again. Others were tortured and refused to be released, so that they might gain a better resurrection. Some faced jeers and flogging, while still others were chained and put in prison. They were stoned, they were sawed in two; they were put to death by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatsins, destitue, persecuted and mistreated - the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and in holes in the ground.
These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them recieved what had been promised. God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect."

Heb. 11: 32-40

and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me."
