Two Passages from Proclus

I made these images because these passages both struck me as very useful and interesting.

The first one is positing a likeness between various levels of beings and springs/rivers/&c., and I like this imagery a lot. It just struck me as extremely poetic when I read it.

The second image comes from a short while later, and it struck me because of the juxtaposition between the way traditional myths are told (with a lot of sex and marriage) and Plato’s myths. Plato truly was a founder of mystic rites and True Poet™️ and someone to be admired for the way he weaves sacred stories in his dialogues.
