An arduous trip each soul to partake; to act out roles til’ the day we awake.

Chronology 3c - Pic 1

To look back upon history and contemplate its greater meaning is something significant to behold. Again and again we see the same archetypal stories being played out as actors upon a stage wearing different costumes. Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief. Like you and I, many of them have stopped to reflect upon their part in the larger dance and song. Indeed many of records have been preserved through them; some of whom have written with future readers in mind. We are indebted to such souls as these are we not? ‘Without hurry, without rest, the human spirit goes forth from the beginning to embody every faculty, every thought, every emotion, which belongs to it in appropriate events… individual man is one more incarnation.’ It seems beyond my rational capacity to see each human member of the entire history of the human race to be but another reflection of my individual self, as though you and I have in some sense lived out all those archetypal roles on a transcendent level that escapes linear time. Are we fragmented reflections of each other? In some sense are we all one? These questions are old to me now but I’m not sure if they are elementary questions for everyone. So in some respect I am living and sharing ideas that everyone knows, but on another level it seems incumbent upon each of us to give breath & imagination to all forms & ideas, at least until we reach that point in mind where rest or being precedes thought of any kind, and we are to say in all truth & honesty that ‘I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.’
