The Order of the Longing Look

The Merlin Tradition



Training in meditation and warriorship is available in the Longing Look, but for those who feel inspired to go on to teach others, I have founded the Order of the Longing Look (OLL). This name was given to me in a vivid revelation while still living as a contemplative (Trappist) monk in vows in 2010. The Order approaches reality from the perspective of time, dissolving time into timelessness. Time and eternity are both in the mind, and will conflict until we perceive time solely as a means to regain eternity.


The OLL is a discreet fellowship aligning with an ancient wisdom lineage under protection of the god Taranis, known by many names across Europe, whose thunder and lightning symbolizes a reversal of ego-thinking, which shortens the path to freedom. 


Feeling this touch of lightning (understanding the teaching, but also living it), opens the eyes to look with 'second sight', illuminating the path to mastery. The thunder of determination is needed to perservere on the path, a path to total freedom. Going beyond meditation, members of the OLL are introduced to a radically new mind-training. Self study makes up an important part of this.



Proficiency allows members of the OLL serve as guides on the path of peace. Already experienced in meditation, they have also learned to walk both in the apparent reality of the 'ordinary' world, and in the ‘Otherworld’, or non-ordinary reality. They are fiercely independent yet never competitive, bonded in a fellowship of mutual respect.
