About this composition:

"The Divine sovereignty has a secret and that secret is you, would that you dissapear, the Divine sovereignty would be abolished as well." Sahl Tostari.

"God is not God by Himself, He is who He is; it is the creature who has chosen Him as God." Angelus Silesius.

There is a mystical abrahamic tradition that afirms that the reason why God created the Universe was His ontological loneliness ("I was a hidden treasure and I wanted to be known"). This composition is a meditation on the fact that, when He is known by you, it is Him who is known in you, (that secret); on the Divine Name waiting to be named and the longing of the creature to find his loving correspondant; on that unio sympathetica.
It is, therefore, a meditation on the passio that moved the world to come into existence, the occult reason which is behind the Alfa point (as Father Theillard du Chardin called Chapter one of the Bible).

Composed in 2000, Three Epistles (on the secret of the occult wings at the light of the midnight sun) belongs (along with Angelus and Ascencion) to a triad of works thought as meditations on three different biblical aspects: the Genesis, the Merkabá (Chariot of God) and the arrival of the Celestial Jerusalem.
