THE HAZELNUTS OF INSANITY

WHO AM I?
     If you light a fire, who chops the wood. If you are picking a guitar, who becomes the music. When you are 9 years old, who frightens you at night with fears about death. If you make a boat, who becomes the ocean? When you received THAT wound, who cleverly fashions your genius into it? Who brings each dream in response to the activities of the day? When you become grandiose, who brings you back to earth; or when you become too pathetic, lifts you up?

WHY AM I HERE?
     Can you become a fish in the holy water of life and be fished for by fishermen of the spirit? Are you able to bow your head? Take hints from dreams? Sit in your closet alone? Can you bend your knee and genuflect? Does reverence ever enter your mind but turn to ash in your mouth? Can you be your own wound, yes, THAT wound? The holy fish drowns in air. But what is the medium in which you will drown? Science? Reality? Illusion? Electronic? What is it you love? 

WHAT DO I WANT?
     What is the medium your character? Religion, the human condition. Not dogma. Not purity. Not faith. Not belief. Not piety. Not doctrine. Not the hazelnuts of insanity. Your character, your soul, wishes to feed you the sacred food, the inspiration, the wisdom, the contradictions, oppositions, the strength you need to become totally grief stricken, embarrassed, shocked and self-aware. Will you realize grief when you become aware you are a person who chops the wood for the fire of others, rubs salt into wounds, and is arrogantly proud of what you call humility? Are you able to eat grief?
