John Michell: A Pilgrimage to Paradise

I have very little of Mr Blake's company. He is always in Paradise--Mrs Blake

By Stella Maris     April 11, 2009


And was the holy Lamb of God on England's pleasant pastures seen?

Our thoughts this Easter holiday weekend are with the prolific author John Michell, who has sadly reached the penultimate stages of a terminal illness. Regarded by some as the founder of the modern "earth mysteries" counter-culture movement, almost all of us have been uniquely influenced by Michell's work in one way or another, particularly his theories on Glastonbury and the New Jerusalem.
 
We wish him a safe journey to Paradise.
 
And he took me up in spirit to a great and high mountain: and he showed me the holy city of Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God... and it had a wall great and high, having twelve gates, and in the gates twelve angels... On the east, three gates: and on the north, three gates: and on the south three gates: and on the west, three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them, the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
 
--from the Apocalypse of Saint John (Revelation 21)

He is now continuing his research into the dimensions of Paradise:

He departed this world on 24 April, the birthday of St Vincent de Paul...

Thanks for this, Guillaume. I heard the next day... I had a feeling when I wrote the above that we wouldn't have very long. 

The genre will be poorer for his passing. His work had a profound influence on a lot of us.
