The Vault of Lost Tales

Memoirs of an Enchanted Sojourner

His Real Self

Consciousness in Truth…

Eddie Two Hawks


Man is empowered by God to hope and hope fervently,
until that for which he is hoping takes the cloak of
oblivion from his eyes, whereupon he will at last view
his real self. And he who sees his real self sees the
truth of real life for himself, for all humanity,
and for all things.

Circle of Pain

A Mother’s Day Reminder & Poem

The Vault of Lost Tales



As I suffer

So suffer the birds and bees, rivers and trees

I am the ‘Mother’ in Mother Nature

The one who destroys cannot replace Her

In Her wrath he cannot face Her

But still he continues to destroy and rape Her

The great imposter, inhumane faker

Unforgiving taker

The air, the water, the fire, the earth

It is the Great Mother who gives them birth

In Love, joy, labor, and mirth

The destroyer cannot count Her worth

All living creatures are aspects of Her features

To study them all is to learn from the Teacher

In and of the Great Mother, all Nature is One

You have thoroughly scorned She whom you are from

There is an ultimate price for the evil that has been done

The Great Mother is not alone

For Nature is Her body, blood, and bones

Her Soul breathes in the wind that…

A Precious Treasure


Eddie Two Hawks


My words are very easy to understand
and easy to practice,
yet the world can neither understand
nor practice them.
My words have only one source:
the subtle truth of the universe.
My deeds have only one master:
the natural virtue of the universe.
The people of the world have no knowledge of this.
Thus, they have no knowledge of me.
The fewer the persons that know me,
the nobler are they that follow me.
Therefore, the one of whole virtue
wears coarse clothes superficially,
but holds a precious treasure within.

Arise Osiris, Brother from the Dead
Awake to Your Lot and Stead
You Alone are King
Stuck in an awful dream
Breathe the steam of your Queen
Exhale, Inhale, Impale
The Lie upon your Hook and Flail
Fear not, We cannot Fail
Rise, O’ Brother

All That We Are

#It is the thought that counts#

Eddie Two Hawks


All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him.
If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him,
like a shadow that never leaves him.

Sorrows Have Taught Me


Eddie Two Hawks


He who would seek truth and proclaim it to mankind is
bound to suffer. My sorrows have taught me to understand
the sorrows of my fellow men…persecution has not
dimmed the vision within me.

You Can’t Keep Away


Eddie Two Hawks


One who knows does not speak.
One who speaks does not know.
The one who knows is the one whose doors are shut,
whose openings are blocked, whose sharpness
is blunted, and whose glare is softened.
He is one with the subtle truth of the universe.

Thus you cannot get close to such a person
by your love to do so.
Nor can you keep away from him
by your desire to do so.
You cannot bestow benefit on him,
nor can you do him harm,
because he holds the subtle essence of the universe.

Sirius lost queen e-coverDESCRIPTION

The Lost Queen follows Iona, a magical nymph, who is different from the other nymphs in the magical grove of Crystal Orchard. Conflict causes the Elders to exile Iona to the Valley of Grove. When she embarks on a search for the Lost Queen, she is forced to question everything that she was taught, as well as realize that the Lost Queen may be closer to her than she could ever imagine.


 The Dream

It was the end of the longest day of her life. Things that some nymphs had never experienced in a thousand years had all happened to Iona in one day. Her life had never been quite boring, but this day had been the king of them all.

It had all begun with those surreal night visions that Iona had awakened…
