Leaving the island of the concept of oneness.

After many years wondering, wandering, stumbling, I found myself at some place of peace.

Upon walking the boundaries I found that I was on an island, alone it seemed.

After some time I began to feel an unease, a knowing that the journey needed to continue--yet it seemed that I had become somehow marooned.

One day I woke to the sound of laughter, the joyous laughter of children at play.

Cautiously I approached them, anxious that they should not be alarmed by my sudden appearance, anxious that they should not fear me.

Yet as I approached they seemed not at all surprised, but expectant.

Here he is ! they cried--and ran toward me.

I became the one who was suprised.

How did you know I was here ? I asked.

We are here to fetch you--in our boat. Pointing at the boat pulled up upon the sand.

What is this place and where are you now to take me ? I asked.

Do not be alarmed, spoke one, this is the island of the concept of oneness which many struggle to get beyond without our help.

But how do you do that ? I said.

Ah, they said, it is not how we do it but how you do it.

You see that we have a boat, a boat which is able to navigate the sea of understanding. We each take an oar, we each pull together, we each rely upon the other.

We are innocent knowing, in love with love, and we steer by the star of compassion.

We felt you were here and that you had become ready to abandon concept and become reality.

Here now, here is your oar. We shall leave at sunrise, but for now we play, join with us.

Continued:-

I took the oar and understood its meaning. It was both my tool and my desire, both how and why.

Hello Miss Hepburn.
I don't read much nowadays, but a few years back did read of the Australian indigenous peoples story/account of the role of the kookaburra bird in the process of the daily sunrise.
I find it beautiful. Beautifully constructed and a beautiful example of human creativity and imagination--creating an explanation for what is unknown using an intimate knowledge of what is known and so providing a framework within which daily life can be felt to be proceeding as it should.
Many beliefs stem from such constructs--and usually offer satisfactory framework to the society which believes in them. --Until they become frameworks of control for those who purport to be able to speak for the unknown.--Or when the unknown becomes known by means such as scientific enquiry, which then offers what is usually seen as a contradictory storyline.
Perhaps the original stories still have something to offer in that case--albeit an offering of a different nature to what was either presumed or intended. An offering perhaps of the great complexity and creativity of the mind.

All the best. petex
