Mystical Bedtime Stories for Adults
In this series, an agent from The Occult Living Room works closely with a visual artist to construct a esoteric bedtime story which is designed to provoke thought, inspire musing and encourage moments of gnosis.
The following is a collaboration and creative exchange between Sasha Smith of The Occult Living Room and visionary tattoo artist @x.longinus.x.
The Undeniable Mother
She crept upward from her fleshy basin
to bloom alongside cosmopolitan flowers
and gaze into the cosmic mirrors.

This came about, not through obligation
but rather as unverifiable proof
our Mother is surely present in the kitchen.
After bypassing the threshold
subtle glances were exchanged
along with a nod, wink and a curtsy.

This first encounter had been
well, a positive affirmation to say the least
Both tongues warmly pointed the way.
There aren’t seas here per se
however, there are swimmers
feathers and fins are basically just for aesthetics…
It’s quite amusing

doing nosedives or summersaults etc.
all while unwrapping arcane gifts…
As with the natural world,
some are prone to be

often, this does in fact serve them well.

The reflection of a cosmic antler?
Well, it’s far more distracting than one would expect.
In all seriousness,
beware of those who herd
also mind the withdrawn who claim
they are merely “watching.”
While touring the interior realms,
there will undoubtedly be a
request bestowed upon the visitor.
To put it bluntly, they will most likely ask for permission…
to accompany you into
the inner sanctum.
Of course it’s intimidating…
but there are always advantages
in relation to good housekeeping.
setting up the communication system takes time.
Have you familiarized yourself with the habits and mannerisms of our nearby snake brethren?
When answering the reporting officer,
please include your position
(in relation to the moon
or lunar cycle).
If the moon is not a practical reference point,
feel free to use a nearby star cluster for example.
The cosmic mother is indeed in the kitchen yet the residence is yet to be determined.
