The Witch Master Key


“The dark dangerous forest is still there, my friends”. – Fritz Leiber

“And I will destroy sorcery from your hand, and you will have no soothsayers”. – Micah 5:11

We search in our souls for the connecting code. The witch master key to unlock the words we know, the symbols that will take us to a different day, the one outside of Victorian gates. Three billion people don’t believe in Jesus while one billion do, another billion-chanting sunshine, while a billion wish they could, and further down the slippery slope of what’s next of when. Another says I have been here before many times over again. Across the old world in genetic code, something is exploring what’s known of us; a question asked from age to age, is what we are and what we must. We look to the sun, while we gather dust; the footprints “Jung” said are dug deep in questions of what we mistrust. In circles, we gather in churches in squares, one looking for synergy, one control from higher air.

We search in the canyons, I have been in some too, the “Canyon De Chelly” I saw ghost in their hue. But this is not me, it is hardly us, it is a we searching when thoughts are not enough. For we in our spirit that stretch to explore, the witch master key to bring G_D to our door. What of such a key that most do not describe, except when their searching to cross this divide. From here on this earth in sacred abides, in glens of the forest, or rocky inclines, I dare say in deserts where banshee’s cry, oh look ever yonder is the searching throng mollified.

We search in our souls for the connecting code. In lamb’s blood on doorpost, as if one would know, the riddles in blood that satisfy one, is it guardian or judgment, we forget which one won. The truth is the more that we search for the light, the witch master key, it becomes dark as night. In one day, you are staring too hard at the fire. A thundering of all burning, the magic of art. The flames they engulf you, and eat what was we, they know no such treatise of souls that are free. They burn your safe harbor the code of your ark. The search is not over, for it did not start.

So, what is the answer the answer for we, in search of the witch master, the spiritual key? Perhaps it is simple not filled with much noise; perhaps it begins with arms raised to the void. Perhaps it surrounds all that is you or me; in separate our union, of individuality. I would not try craft that is another’s art, for that key is different from what grows naturally in your own heart. – 04.12.18 – דָּנִיֵּאל

  1. I read an article one time that the subject matter was devoted to trying too hard to get to heaven. My young friend, that is what I have received out of this most wonderful work of yours. Too much time spent by too many people trying to obtain some type of magic that they do not know how to handle. That is my take.

  2. Daniel this is amazing writing, on so many levels intertwining the spirit with real life, the search for happiness and what is beyond the door. I like the way you wrap it up in the end. After all that is the most important part. 🙂

    • I appreciate your kind words Jane. Indeed, it is an interesting journey, and I for one probably spend too much time wrapped up in the points of what is not important in trying to reach an answer. It is after all built I believe within us, and therefore ever ready to find.

  3. Daniel, this perhaps is one of your most in depth pieces I have had the privilege to read. The message for me is loud and very clear. The search that most take a lifetime for they over do,. I know this is true for me. The answer is right here in our hearts. I shall print this wonderful verse off, and no doubt read it often to remind myself, that a wise man once wrote a wise man is not needed.

    • Hi Lynette, I read something many years ago in the book of Wisdom, and have always remembered it but never been able to find it again, no pun intended but here goes. “What we search for with difficulty is within the palm of our hand”. Thank you as always for your kind comment.

  4. My brother, your wisdom in this post is on display, and though I never doubted it, I know that Hashem speaks through you. The words that come from your soul, are everlasting and I cherish each one. The search in life for spiritual meaning is one that is not a stranger to anyone whom has a heart. I am sure this piece will resonate with many. Shalom, Den

    • Thank you my brother. I have to take a humble step here or at least I hope it is a humble step, and say I am not sure if it is Hashem’s voice or my own ego, hopefully the former, in any case you honor me with your compliments and I am grateful to have you as a reader of my ramblings but even more as a friend. Shalom Daniel

      • My brother, ramblings are done by the mad and the insincere, neither is you. 😉 I ramble myself occasionally. 😉 Shalom, Den

  5. ” I would not try craft that is another’s art, for that key is different from what grows naturally in your own heart.” The ending on “The Witch Master Key” is worth reaching. Once again a amazing post. ❤

  6. Dear Daniel,
    This is amazing. When you write about the soul, I often find myself falling into your words digesting them trying to apply them to what is within me. With “The Witch Master Key”, I did not have to do that. It spoke to me from the beginning and in the end my heart knew the search was over. This was wonderful my friend.

  7. Daniel this was a twisting masterpiece of prose. I love the nod to Canyon De Che of course, and know from what you have written in the past the canyon holds many spiritual truths for you. The song was an amazing fit as usual. ❤ ❤ ❤

  8. Daniel this is fantastic and amazing. I have re-read it several times, and the combination of words are exquisite. The ending as many have talked about almost hit me by surprise I suppose because it held an answer instead of another question. Shabbat shalom to you and your wonderful family. ❤

    • Thank you Heather. I am happy you liked the post, and as always appreciate your kind comments and reading. To tell you the truth I wasn’t sure if the post made sense, I thought it did when I wrote it but then went back and re read it myself a few times and was totally confused by what it seemed to say, but as I always do threw it up anyway. Now I am glad I did. It makes more sense to even me. Shalom my friend.

      • It is very rare I don’t get it with one of your post, I find that when I read and re-read I pick up something that usually applies to my life. I am amazed by your creativity. Shalom, Heather ❤

  9. Reason therefore attests that there is no Witch Master’s key. There is no religion, society or magic that turns the tumblers of the lock.
    There is, however, Whitby, and its Ladies. Oh yes, they have many keys. Music keys, keys to the wine cellar, keys to the mansion and keys for reasons. They have a trove of skeleton keys, small islands and skis to slalom downhill on.
    Most importantly, they have the keys to the wardrobe. Herein, the next Art Gown approaches a slow finish, and Susan awaits in the wings.
    It is an opera, Whitby style.

    • Hi Resa, I had to smile reading your comment; I have never put the word reason in with what I write. I probably should, it would make better sense. I owe you an email my “Whitby Lady”. Indeed, you are correct, all things are beholden and open to the craft of the Whitby clan. Hmmm, “A Whitby Opera”, I like that a lot!!! I am sure the gown will be the work of the craft from which you’re great talent flows. I can hardly wait! 🙂

  10. “We search in the canyons, I have been in some too, the “Canyon De Chelly” I saw ghost in their hue.” I keep thinking it would have been crazy to have been there when this happened. This is an unbelievable great post Daniel. Your best I think.

    • Hi Ryan, Thank you, I would have to agree with your interpretation, as I was mentioning above to someone else, I wasn’t sure if this post even made sense, and then after re reading it myself several times I came up with two different thoughts on it, and one mirrored what you just mentioned. Thank you.

  11. I had chills while reading this Daniel, but more so when I read the following words, “Across the old world in genetic code, something is exploring what’s known of us; a question asked from age to age, is what we are and what we must.” This is something I have pondered for sometime. I think your very right, we are being scanned, and no doubt always have been from the beginning of time. This was fantastic writing. ❤

  12. Most of your writing find a personal place in my soul, and I think we are similar in a spiritual sense, but nothing you have written has made me feel more at ease in the way I view my search spiritually then this post. All I can say is thank you Daniel. ❤

  13. Dear Daniel, a wonderful piece. The following is my favorite part, “…the riddles in blood that satisfy one, is it guardian or judgment, we forget which one won. The truth is the more that we search for the light, the witch master key, it becomes dark as night.” So much said here, Daniel, a fascinating passage with explicit knowledge that you’ve been prompted to pen. Enjoy the remains of Sunday and have a stellar week ahead. ~ Mia
