75. EL, Stuttgart, 1-1-'11

A famous inscription, the Delphic E (Ei) stood over the portal of the Delphi's temple. The Delphic E means “you are.” Plutarch said it was a greeting to the Godhead by the people who entered the temple. The Delphic E also means the number 5, or the five rising signs in the zodiac. It was adopted by the Gnostics to indicate the Savior, and it's often found on the early Christians' talismans and amulets. It's also found on Seleucid anchors … Maha aya=the great nonexistence. I/A=existence, ch=shaping oneself, im=becoming aware of oneself. The word Iachim (Joachim) has a pedagogically healing effect. Should be said as a prayer in morn and eve for the sake of children and sick people.

To combat vanity, pride, and arrogance think about theosophical teachings; envy and jealousy — think of a beautiful work of art; talkativeness, curiosity, and aggravation — 15 minutes quiet every day.
