Orfismo è il nome di una corrente artistica che si ripresenta ciclicamente nella storia, ha un carattere intertemporale perché ricorre a distanza di tempo e in diverse aree geografiche, dando consistenza all’ideale di un’arte spirituale e iniziatica, il cui fondamento è una religione naturale stabilita sull’osservazione degli astri e la santificazione del tempo attraverso l’offerta della voce.

The accomplishment of this task is given by the Adept through the Phoné, the Offer of the Voice (φωνή), that is to perform the Psalms (according to Judeo-Christian tradition) or the Hymns (according to Hellenistic heritage of ancient Chaldaic and Assyrian wisdom).
As Delaunay demonstrates with his modern interpretation of Orphism, this has not to be interpreted as an idea of the past but, instead, of the future. Something to be performed and accomplished in our life.
When the awareness of the task of the Moon is advanced enough, the Adept should be able to generated in itself the imitation of the Sun, which is the balancement of the orbits of the Seven Errant (the planetary hebdomade of the week). The meaning of this grade is to become center of some influences. What comes next is the awareness of the invisible, that are Solstices and Equinoxes. This is not the proper place to give an exposition of the way this may be done. For the present proposal, we could give conclusion saying that this kind of perception of spiritual life of the cosmos is something that can be feel by everyone.»
