Puzzling The Dream Ago Puzzle; Sometimes a Dream Wants to Play
Not a poem.
Go a little crazy. It’s okay. Squiggly puzzle pieces. I’ll be here when you get back.
[Embodied Divinity in Dream Words]
[There is some debate about whether it was Moses or God who wrote the second tablet in Exodus.]
A conversation with Pythia Peay and Marion Woodman.
Woodman: “If you are far enough away from something, you can relate to it at a much more intimate level than something that is just pulsing with intimacy. There’s a paradox here.”
Peay: “I see that paradox. It’s as if myth has only just become ‘myth.’ The gods and goddesses of Ancient Greece weren’t considered myths, they were the Greeks’….”
Woodman: “The soul is eternal. It’s language is eternal.”
– From A Meeting with Marion Woodman in Conscious Femininity, pp.126.
[Why did Moses break the first tablet said to be written by god?]
[When he came down with the second set of tablets, it is said he was glowing radiantly…]
“the seeing of God, not the merging with God.” – Reb YaKov Leib HaKohain, he said.
[Did not Jesus overturn the tables at the temple, and reject the religious traditions of his time?]
He was one with the Father. He told us so.
The preachers preach, “accept the Holy communion and have union,” acting as if, until.]
U and I
[When the disciple proclaims, “I have taken communion with the living God, your bread and wine are dead, there is no life there…!” The preacher cries, “Blasphemy!”]
Truth or lie? I only report what is given me.
[Has religion shut the door on revelation and transcendence? Is this why a man must suffer the loss of faith, lose his religion…?]
…Or something like that.
From this perspective, “religion” or at least mainstream religion as we know it, is closer to science than we ever really considered…mechanical, mechanized. Robotized. Concretized. Entangled by the fingers of technology.
Holding the tensions.
To be and not to be.
Of but not in.
In but not of.
Yet both of and in.
A part of but not one with.
Yet in the part we find the whole.
And in the whole we find the part.
Yin and Yang.
Holding the tension.
Not “holding” but “flowing.”
Holding Equinoxes. The quick minute between before and after. The sweet spot.
Floating. Flowing. Liminal Space.
Major Tom to ground control.
He was in the dream, you know. Ego.
A quick minute. Minimal space…
What is myth?
Are ‘we’ myth?
Rites of Renewal.
Be in g
Be in g-d
To be or not to be.
The All and the Nothing.
Riddle me this: What is myth?
Are you wearing your night vision glasses?
Who am I?
Who said that?
This is fun.
In the middle of…
Where do I begin?
Let me tell you.
Where do I end?
Not enough time to tell the whole story.
Enjoying the ride, Ram Dass.
Be here now.
No drugs required, dude. No magic mushrooms.
Just tiptoeing through the tulips.
Silly. Sense of humor.
We’re supposed to be having fun, you know.
