So, you think Apollo was more brilliant than Dionysus? Personally, I think the apparent dichotomy that we see in our modern age is nothing more than a
psychological illusion. A truly enlivened being will encompass both of those rudimentary paths, and often the most brilliant stars are totally unaware
of their talents or their inherent natures. It seems that most initiates are probably intelligent, but I find that the messages projected forth by
authorities of all kinds whether they be artists or writers or musicians bear under the current of their surface a more universal thread. It is truly
amazing the impressions that allegory and symbolic communications can leave within the psyche of the observer.
Hegel was right, see every angle, synthesize all things. The middle roads will almost always lead you to a better destination than any fundamentalist
Am I stopping the engine of this world by burying my talents? Am I denying this generation the illumination that it most properly deserves?
Personally, I see myself as living in unsuitable soil, a seed which has fallen on barren ground. How can I grow here to shine my light in this
darkness, to call forth an oasis from this desert when this world vibrates at a frequency that it fundamentally opposed to my inherent being?
The things people pursue: food, shelter, sex, distraction, entertainment, challenge, status, power, knowledge; none of it has any pull over me
whatsoever greater than the pull I have for becoming a better, freer, more self-actualizing, independent and productive creature.
Are we really going to waste this one opportunity we have to live on this planet scurrying about in shadows, squabbling for baubles when we could
unfurl our wings and take flight?
