AND SO IT IS!
I will fear not evil to me; for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me
In a kind of parable,
Nietzsche describes what he calls
the three transformations of the spirit.
The first is that of the camel, of childhood and youth.
The camel gets down on his knees and says,
“Put a load on me.”
This is the season for obedience,
receiving instruction and the information
your society requires of you
in order to live a responsible life.
it struggles to its feet and runs out into the desert,
where it is transformed into a lion --
the heavier the load that had been carried,
the stronger the lion will be.
and the name of the dragon is “Thou shalt.”
On every scale of this scaly beast, a “thou shalt” is imprinted:
some from four thousand years ago;
others from this morning’s headlines.
Whereas the camel, the child,
had to submit to the “thou shalts,”
the lion, the youth, is to throw them off
and come to his own realization.
with all its “thou shalts” overcome,
the lion is transformed into a child
moving out of its own nature,
like a wheel impelled from its own hub.
No more rules to obey.
No more rules derived
from the historical needs
and tasks of the local society,
but the pure impulse to
living of a life in flower.
the “thou shalt” is a must, a civilizing force.
It converts the human animal into a civilized human being.
But the period of youth is the period of self-discovery
and transformation into a lion.
The rules are now to be used at will for life,
not submitted to
as compelling “thou shalts.”
and not being bound by them.
That is the time for the lion-deed.
You can actually forget the rules
because they have been assimilated.
You are an artist.”
Excerpt from Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell
To be found here.
Understand that all outer appearances are a passing show...
People sometimes say: "you must try to make the best of things."
I find this such a feeble thing to say.
Everywhere things are both good and very bad at the same time.
The two are in balance, everywhere and always. I never have
the feeling that I have got to make the best of things.
Everything is fine just as it is.
and contains the good as well as the bad...
Things come and go in a deeper rhythm, and people must
learn to listen..

we must always remain true to the creed that,
“The fluent blade cuts cleanly.”
(Credit for the above quote is the novelist Takashi Matsuoka in his novel,
“Cloud of Sparrows”
which I think probably ought to be better known than it is).

which we may choose to acknowledge or not,
and that our actions will indeed
“echo through time”
whether we realize this or not.
and whether or not it looks back are inconsequential;
the Zentropist has a responsibility to share his or her gifts,
however humble they may be perceived,
for in doing so
he or she will be rewarded one thousand-fold.
Thus speaks the Tao of the Zentropist…
but the reverse isn’t true.”
