“Behold! it is the eve of time, the hour when the wanderers turn toward their resting-place.  One god after another is coming home. . . . Therefore, be present. . . .”
          - Holderlin

Bahana! Quezalcoatl! Come!
Release Merlin from the oak
And hasten Arthur’s return!
Cause the ancient warriors to become reborn
From mountains’ womb!
Together we will find the Holy Grail!
Your blood still flows!
And all our sweet ancestors shall live again!
Just as the Phoenix rises from the ashes,
Give us back new magic and new gods
And let us always remain in your presence!

Rabbi Joshua ben Levi came upon Elijah, the prophet, while he was standing at the entrance of Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai’s cave. . . He asked Elijah, “When will the Messiah come?”
Elijah replied, “Go and ask him yourself.”
“Where is he?”
“Sitting at the gates of the city.”
“How shall I know him?”
“He is sitting among the poor covered with wounds.  The others unbind all their wounds at the same time and then bind them up again.  But he unbinds one at a time and binds it up again, saying to himself, ‘Perhaps I shall be needed; if so, I must always be ready so as not to delay for a moment.’”
Rabbi Joshua ben Levi went up to the Messiah and said to him, “Peace unto you, my master and teacher.”
The Messiah answered, “Peace unto you, Son of Levi.”
He asked, “When is the master coming?”
“Today,” he answered.
Rabbi Joshua returned to Elijah, who asked, “What did he tell you?”. . .
“He indeed has deceived me, for he said, ‘Today I am coming,’ and he has not come.”
Elijah said, “This is what he told you, “Today - if you would hearken unto His voice.’”  [Ps 95:7]
