The Orphic Creration myth (Part 2)
Thus the titans for their sin of killing and devouring Zagreus were transformed from titans into humans.The humans, the fallen titans who were also part god because the titans had eaten Zagreus were forced to live on earth for a great year During that great year they did their penance, living as humans as they purified themselves and purged themselves of the titanic evil within them. That great evil occurred when the titans after they died ans approached the river Styx in Hades; they falsely swore an oath on the river Styx to regard Zagreus-Phanes as king when Dionysus, the reincarnation of Zagreus-Phanes was crowned king of the gods by Zeus in the future. Zeus knew that the titans lied for he, the all knowing one knew that they had no intention of keeping their oath. But the humans shall purify themselves by learning the mysteries. When humans are born they do not remember their origin because they drank the water of Lethe in Hades before being born but it is through the mysteries that they shall remember their true origins. The humans shall learn that they are children of the earth and starry heaven but their real nature is that of heaven alone. For generations humanity shall reincarnate, walk the four quarters of the earth and purify themselves generation after generation. Some will learn the mysteries sooner and reach their true heavenly abode in three lives or less but all will eventually come to know the mysteries and reach their true heavenly abode at the end of the great year. At the end of the great year all humanity shall have purged themselves of the titan within themselves; then they shall be divine and recognize Dionysus as king when Zeus crown Dionysus-Zagreus-Phanes , the one the titans had so cruelly killed and eaten.
