        THE CAVE OF ORPHEUS' S ORACLE IN ANTISSA LESBOS



Regarded as the musical mystic and esoteric Prophet poet Orpheus was the first to introduce initiation rites and mystic religions to men. The father of  Orphism was alluded with many hymns in hexameters like the Orphic Argonautica back in 6th century B.C. to later surviving hymns in the 3rd and 2nd century B.C. Heralded as the Father Of Songs by Pindar the ancient Greek lyric poet of Thebes , it was believed that the Lyre created by Hermes was perfected by Orpheus, his musical spell and yearning tones were alchemical and mystical katharsis themselves. 
Practices of secret magic purification rituals, cults of Apollo and Dionysus arts and astrology founded by him, structured the religious beliefs of the Ancient Greeks, the Hellenistic world and the Thracians along with the adoption of Orphikos Bios (The Orphic Way Of Life) as their holy gospel and following principles of an ascetic life.


 The concepts of Metempsychosis or trans migration of souls and its afterlife  journey  through Hades (Underworld) was introduced by Orpheus as Gnostic esoteric wisdom. As he revered Persephone and Dionysus ( Bacchus ) through their return from Hades symbolical of rebirth, immortality and liberation offering the key to salvation as Orpheus was believed to discover the Divine mysterious of Dionysus. Synonymous to other Miracle working figures of Bakis or the Prophetic oracle dispensers of the Boeotian, Arcadian and Athenian lineage, Musaeus, a polymath, seer, augur, philosopher, musician and poet of Attica was believed as the son or disciple of Orpheus, mystic sage, healer and an Apollonian priest Abaris the Hyperborean was adorned with the Prophetic boon and occult wisdom, Aristeas of Proconnesus Asia Minor was a miracle worker endowed with the gift of poetry, Epimenides of Knossos the philosopher seer and poet along with Clairvoyant Prophetess Sibyls the miraculous soothsayers of Delphi or Pessinos.
As an Augur priest and seer Orpheus was believed as a Reincarnation of Dionysus by Thracians as he re-discovered the mysterious of the Lord of Ecstasy and Liberation.

Jim Morrison's poetic phrases and inner incantations evoking His immortal spirit and invoking the Ancient Lords through his Shamanistic magic words as offerings to his longing surrender for the Sacred masters of Ages.......
