well chosen, mo!
Jim is a shaman, & one WITHOUT rituals, free from any conventions. The doors of perception cleansed - breaking through to the essence. A WILD CHILD!
Excellently stated coralie!
The below quoted statement
is in keeping w/ Jim’s spirit, I think
in shamanic, Masonic, and other later initiations, the candidate was placed in a trance, his consciousness taken
out of the body, and in this state he experienced higher
states of being and met some of the denizen of the invis-
ible worlds. Some were demonic, others beneficent;
Proculus describes certain of them as forms of light that
take on human shape. Through direct experience the can-
idate would learn that he could live freely without his
physical body, and that the gods he worshiped were
perfectly real. Then he would return to earth fully
convinced of immortality and prepared to meet death
fearlessly, knowing it as the door to freedom
and his soul’s true home.

I just stumbled across this professor & scholar
who writes & teaches esoteric histories
or forbidden knowledge which
he calls the Golden Thread.
Such subjects are:
prisca theoligia, orphic mysteries,
hermetic tradition, inner alchemy ect…
I do believe these subjects fascinated Jim.
Certainly Jim influenced me to
be similarly fascinated
