Far, through strange spaces, have i journeyed
into the depth of the abyss of time,
until in the end all was revealed.
Know ye that mystery is only mystery
when it is knowledge unknown to man.
When ye have plumbed the heart of all mystery,
knowledge and wisdom will surely be thine.
Seek ye and learn that TIME is the secret
whereby ye may be free of this space....
Time changes not,
but all things change in time.
For time is the force
that holds events separate,
each in its own proper place.
Time is not in motion,
but ye move through time
as your consciousness
moves from one event to another.
Aye, by time yet exist, all in all,
an eternal ONE existence.
Know ye that even though in the time ye are separate,
yet still are ONE, in all times existent. [Emerald Tablets of Thoth]
THE MOUSE TRAP
A mouse peaked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife opening a package. "What yummies might this box contain?" the mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover that the box contained a mouse trap.
Retreating to the farm yard, the mouse frantically proclaimed "There is a mouse trap in the house!"
The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, "Mr Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no concern to me. I cannot be bothered by it."
The mouse turned to the pig adn told him, "there is a mouse trap in the house." The pig sympathized, but said, "I am very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers."
The mouse turned to the cow and said, "there is a mouse trap in the house." The cow said, "Wow, Mr. Mouse. I am sorry for you but it is no skin off my nose."
So the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer's mouse trap alone. That very night a sound was heard throughout the house - like the sound of a mouse trap catching its prey.
The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous sanke whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer's wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital and she returned home with a high fevor
Everyone knows to treat a fevor with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farm yard for the soup's main ingredient. But his wife's sickness continued. So friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer's wife did not get well; she died.
So many people came for her funeral that the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them
The mous looked upon itall from his crack in hte wall with great sadness.
So the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it does not concern you, remember - when one of us is threatened, we all are at risk. We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.
