Fernando Pessoa is our cicerone in Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra. Because the poet was faithful to his own saying that “to travel, just exist.”
Fernando Pessoa, strange, foreign and esoteric
“I am a story that someone had told and, so well told, walked carnal but not much romance in this world”
There is a magic and mysterious Portugal to discover, by the hand of the great modernist poet Fernando Pessoa.
The spiritual, esoteric and hermetic dimension shaped the whole life of the poet. A deep root of all his work, the interior search is perhaps the most difficult facet of reading and reading, the one that most nourishes the brilliance and mystery of his Message.
It is the Person himself who voluntarily or involuntarily develops the chronology of his spiritualism in direct connection with the chronology of his real existence. Who completes, rehearses, contests or recovers throughout his life. Who justifies it, at a given moment, as a gnostic, initiatory search, of a final meaning for his life and work.
Make an important distinction between Person the scholar “esoterologist” and Possible practitioner, or follower, “esoterist”. An esoteric person, occultist, neopagan, medium remains an enigma, but the twenty-year span of spiritual essay research is unquestionable, his quest for Occult Truth.
