Hello! Shalom! Aloha! Mabuhay!

If this is your first visit to Modern Apocrypha, I have only two recommendations for continuing on with minimal confusion:

1) Please begin with the first introductory post (found HERE) and work your way forward. Almost all the posts on this blog flow chronologically and will make more sense with the background and context of previous ones. Jumping in anywhere might be disorienting.

2) Please read along in the texts posted off to the right. I try not to summarize too much in the commentary and discussion, and being at least somewhat familiar with what we're discussing or I'm commenting on will be most beneficial and edifying for all involved. Plus, going along with the theme of this blog, any hidden truths to be brought to light will be found within the text itself and not necessarily within my ramblings.

Okay, fine, three recommendations:

3) Please read with an open heart, mind, and spirit. See what truths you can find in these works--ones which speak to you. Namaste : )

If you've noticed the lack of posts this last week, hopefully you might've also noticed a new page off to the right at the head of the Aklatan text. I've just finished compiling a chapter-by-chapter outline and summary of the books of the Aklatan for your perusal. Each chapter has a sentence or two describing the gist of its plot and/or teachings (of course, there are many details, etc. left out). I hope, if you haven't begun reading through the complete text yet, that you'll go through and review the chapter summaries. This was my third time reading through the Aklatan (it's both a quick but thought-provoking read), and it's still a very intriguing text and an amazing record. There is truth to be uncovered within it.
