One or the other

May 9, 2013

One dwells within

the other is an errant tent.

One is silent

the other cries out.

One is sitting in the garden

the other moans before the wall.

One is a Light

the other lights a candle.

One is without burden

the other is a stone.

Have you met the other?

…This is how Adam changed

The case of Adam Eve

February 25, 2013

Judge: Would you mind telling the court something about your circumstances

Adam: I was initially alone; began my life from scratch; my wife came later …we didn’t possess much.

Judge: Were you allowed to keep animals on the property?

Adam. Yes your Honour, we were allowed and kept all kinds of animals, sheep and lions, wolves and goats…

Judge: Were you aware of the fact that you were going to be asked to leave the garden?

Adam: No your Honour, it was a surprise both to my wife and to my self.

Judge: Did you sign any papers when you received the garden?

Adam: No your Honour, it was His Word

Judge: Did you make any improvements on the property while in the Garden.

Adam: There was no need; we pretty much got along with what was there.

Judge: At termination were you awarded any kind of severance?

Adam: No your Honour, We got a few skins and were asked to leave

And then He put that guard in front of the entrance.

Judge: How many years were you in possession of the property?

Adam: from the very beginning; I was born there; spent every day of my life in that place.

Judge: On the day of the event were you passing hunger?

Adam: No your Honour we got along fine with a few things off of a bush and a tree; honey was plenty and milk was never scarce.

Judge: How many apples did you say you took?

Adam: One! Your Honour. Just one! And I didn’t take more than one bite.

Judge: Do you have anything to say to your defence?

Adam: I didn’t know then what the consequences were going to be. Who would have thought that a bit of fruit would get you into so much trouble?

The Animan

February 3, 2010

The link between men and animals are occupied by animen or humals.

Animen fall into one of two categories: An ascending group lead by the centaur; the beast with a strikingly human soul and the descending group led by the minotaur; the human appearance with a soul closely affiliated to the animal.

To the untrained eye, both appear in the garb of the evolutionary niche they are about to abandon. The horse or ascending animan will look like a horse and it takes time and perception to establish its  combined and transitory nature. The same is true for animen that look human. At first the beast is not at all plain to see; several sessions of close interaction, however, will not fail to bring out their deeper nature.

The taxonomy was abandoned due to an either-or principle in science.

The myth of Why

September 18, 2009


The opportunity to ‘discover-decide’  why ones soul is bleeding allows a person to make sense of the situation.

In this ‘discovering-deciding’, do we lead, as in creating a meaning, or do we follow as in discovering a meaning? Both take place a posteriori; events have already occurred. It is a matter, now, of who gets to say why things have happened, I or destiny?

Which of the two paths to peace we take, in assisted mental metabolism or therapy, is of no functional importance; psychology does not reach out to the soul, it is about helping a mind in anguish.

When you carry a burden, meaning is helpful, whether you make it up or find it.

I usually tell myself:  “I found it”


“O Fortune, like the moon

you are changeable,

ever waxing

and waning;

hateful life

first oppresses

and then soothes

as fancy takes it”

FROM: O Fortuna – Carmina Burana – by Carl Orff
