The grabbing authority of my peers
The rusty cage that never seems to open
When can I escape?
When can I swim to the moon?
I've heard this expression my entire life
Never realized how peaceful a statement it is
All alone on the worlds waters
Here I am
The sun's slowly drifting past the edge of the world (can't blame our ancestors)
I'm the loneliest boat on this entire body of water
Rest will not give my awakening purpose
This is why I have come here in the first place
A peace I have never felt
A life I did not want to live
I will awake through sleep
The drifting drifter
Look into the picture
No more panic
No more regret
No more hoping for a new mess
Slide into the water
Become one with the sea
Life seems so much smaller
Swim to the moon
The Latin term Vesica Pisces, meaning "Vessel of the Fish" The almond-shaped center of the image is called a mandorla (Latin for almond; "vesica" or "vesica piscis" is sometimes also used to describe only this almond-shaped center.)
A medieval hymn calls Jesus "the little fish in the Virgin's fountain." The Christ child is often shown inside a mandorla.
Mary herself can be equated with the goddess Aphrodite Marina, who brought forth all the fish in the oceans
I think organic matter ingested would be like a stargate that allows others to influence us.
Some organic matter also has properties that can begin to remove the veil seperating the physical and spiritual.
Long ago some spirits were married to certain plants.
You may want to account for what kind of animal you wear also cause that could be perhaps the link between a human and a spirit.
It is certainly true that animal parts are always present in such rituals.

Marriage...Intercourse...Unions...Jesus handling his wood like a master(haha)...
I'd never really thought of Jesus being a shaman, but I guess shaman-ship has it early root in most ancient cultures, so I'm guessing a shaman was like a native aboriginal chieftain then? I'm wondering if this spirit spouse is a lot the story of Jesus spending 40 days and 40 nights, praying or meditating, and resisting and conquering Satan, the Adversary, offers or deals wishes, like when Satan tempted Christ with the nations, Satan had conquered, and would give unto him?
Or that how its often depicted in the story where as it often believed, to have transcended. Also, the marriage idea is
in Christianity, but is often perceived as the union or bond between the son and the father. Where I'm guessing the union could be described as the holy ghost, host, or spirit.
Also the picture with Jesus, and the three animals, with a man at the top corner reminds me of a mythical creature.
O wait, it was two part hydrogen, one part oxygen... C
Shamanismby Kenneth Shouler, Ph.D.
A shaman is a man or woman of any age who can be benevolent or harmful. Because of their supposed contact with supernatural spirits, shamans have gained a reputation mainly for healing and curing (and even causing) illnesses, including mental illnesses, which are the result of evil spirits. Whether they are medicine men or witch doctors, shamans usually occupy a position of high respect and even power in a village.
It is almost certain that the history of shamanism goes back to prehistory. Even though the practice has strong elements of sorcery and magic, most scholars agree that it also has religious characteristics in that a shaman deals in identification with the supernatural, particularly as it relates to calling up and working with spirits....
