The Eighteenth Letter of Genghis Khan to the Magicians of the Yi Jing:
It is the work of the Fool, like the baby that feeds from its mother’s breast. It is the work of the Fool. And the Fool will reach the Mountain of all that he has sacrificed to reach the Path of Knowing. When he has arrived at the foot of the Mountain, he will hear the voice of the wind giving him certain instructions. Above all, he must begin cleaning up the things that he has sacrificed on the journey, which is now the Mountain itself.
Be careful. It is a very difficult way of cleaning. It is ridding the mind of all the things that have caused us to be infatuated with ourselves. The Fool carries all the tools of the Magician. He thinks that he is a Magician because he has traveled on the journey for so long. He has all the tools of the Magician, but does not know how to use them. He came into possession of the Magician’s tools because he is the youngest son of the High Priestess like every other Fool. The Fool can only be a Fool. He can be nothing more than a Fool. In order for him to become a Magician, he must first destroy the Fool. Change cannot occur unless something is destroyed and made into something new. The Wind at the foot of the Mountain is different from the Wind at the crown of the Mountain.
When the Fool arrives at the foot of the Mountain, the voice of the Wind will instruct him. It will tell him to clean up the Mountain. This is no easy task for he has neglected so much, which must be amended in the faith of the virtue that was learned on the journey. It is during this process of cleaning that he can destroy the Fool and become a Magician. In cleaning up all that he has sacrificed on the journey, he must begin to use the tools of the Magician.
At first, he may fear the practice of becoming and being a Magician. It is a practice that does not appear similar to the great and wondrous things that he read about in books. When such is the case, you must know that the Fool has not been destroyed. Later, he will begin to measure his actions against the results they produced. When he finds such behavior displeasing, though it may appear pleasing in the eyes of the uninitiated, the Fool is beginning to die.
