He notices there is writing on the paper. "Oh, the poem, you could not finish Magos." Magellan begins reading the poem. "The book to be, is the one to be written. Just as the cat to be, comes from the kitten. For the way has been shown by the light. The law of nature is within sight." "For it comes fast like the wind. It has a beginning, but is there an end? Evil can be defeated, once truth comes and is seated." "Call on the power up high. To come shine light through the sky. Known as the power and when spoken, comes out of the darkness, webs to be broken." Journey to the island of Nevis in 1806 and explore the life of a wizard's apprentice.

Almost 300,000 people ‘officially’ complete the journey to Santiago each year – hundreds of thousands more travel at least part of the way. In this book, Richard Frazer discovers on his pilgrimage to the shrine of St James the Great how a journey – wherever it is made – undertaken with an open and hospitable heart can provide spiritual renewal and transformation, filling what many people see as the spiritual void in 21st century life. This absorbing account reveals how the pilgrim journey can be nourishment for the human heart. It connects us to landscape and brings us to the mystery of what it is to be human and vulnerable and open to the kindness of strangers and the gift of the new and the unexpected.

The Visible And The Invisible In The Interplay Between Philosophy Literature And Reality

Merleau-Ponty's categories of the visible and the invisible are investigated afresh and with originality in this penetrating collection of literary and philosophical inquiries. Going beyond the traditional and current references to the mental and the sensory, mind and body, perceptual content and the abstract ideas conveyed in language, etc., these studies range from the `hidden spheres of reality', to the play of the visible and the invisible left as traces in works of human genius, the origins of intellect and language, the real and the imaginary in literature, and the `hidden realities' in the philosophy of the everyday world. These literary and philosophical probings collectively reveal the role of this disjoined/conjoined pairing in the ontopoietic establishment of reality, that is, in the manifestation of the logos of life. In tandem they bring to light the hidden play of the visible and the invisible in the emergence of our vital, societal, intimate, intellectual, and creative involvements.
