I’ve ever had;
the ones still

It’s a good thing Peter, Edmund, and Lucy grew up in Narnia, because they didn’t get to in England. :) :) :)

“By candle wax that doth burn cunningly and dragon’s smoke praise be to the Old Gods for blessings that inspire passion and the bane of adversity that gives wisdom. The wisdom to know, the wisdom to will, the wisdom to dare and the wisdom to keep secret.”

You’ve settled back on the couch now that you’ve served up your second round of drinks. You take a large swig of your drink, eyes on her fingers easily dangling her glass, touch light. It’s nothing like your own death grip on your glass. Her fingers are using such a delicate touch and her fingernails are short and painted black, and for some reason you find yourself mesmerized.

All are but symbols and stories, cycles upon cycles, death and rebirth, death and rebirth, again and again.

“If you believe in the gods, then you believe in the cycle of time that we are all playing our parts in a story that is told again and again, and again throughout eternity.”

As above so below, as within so without. The stories in the skies have much wisdom for those who dare to open their eyes. These sky stories are the same myths that contain the archetypes that ripple through the collective consciousness waiting for you to realize the deeper truths of the Universe and wake up from your slumber.

The names and details may change through the ages but the symbols remain and contain the same essence. The same symbols and archetypes repeat through the ages cyclically forever until you see and understand and liberate yourselves. The truth is there for all who wish to realize it.
