EPISODE XV - THE WISDOM OF ANDREW
Many of you have now realized the importance of your journey during adolescence. After reading my previous episode, EPISODE XIV - THE AGE OF RAGE AND THE BUTTERFLY", you have been sending me emails asking for more.
As I have stated earlier, I cannot show you the path to the Elysium Fields. It is a journey that only you can make, but I can offer you, some common, every day, "guideposts." These guideposts are people from every walk of life, willing to help you in your spiritual growth towards the ultimate wisdom; the path to the Elysium Fields. Let me show you two such ordinary people so that you too, will be able to identify others like them, should you choose. I would like you to view the following video - Reflection: Happiness, passion, love, and hope.
Such video, my young friends, is a guidepost to you. This elderly man has so much wisdom to share with you; if only he were next door to you, and you could spend some time with him. He lives in a foreign land; I assume it is Poland, but such wise men and women are everywhere, all you need to do, is seek them out. This past week, I came across such a wise man:
I mentioned earlier, that some sincere Samaritans, had offered me their apartment to stay for the summer months in Toronto. Until two weeks ago, I had not met these people, yet through the Internet, they were able to search and seek me out. They have offered me their place of residence for the summer months in Toronto, without any conditions. Their exceptional generosity forever humbles me. As a signpost to me, from "The Light's," wisdom, guiding me on my journey to the Elysium Fields.
I will not speak for Andrew, nor "interpret" his message of wisdom. I think those of you who listen carefully, will understand. The most important thing I want the young to realize is that such "Andrews," are in great abundance everywhere. If you seek their guidance, you will be enriched beyond measure. In fact, I would advise you that without such "human guidepost," you will be groping in the dark, much longer than you have to. Without such men/women, you will be exhausting much of your energy and time, only to go in circles in the vast ocean of "possibilities."
Listen carefully to Andrew and how he relates humankind to the "Universe." How one should seek out a career. His definition of happiness and his view of education. The deep understanding that will lead us to a better world. He lives his days "recycling" what most of us just discard and throw away. His pride is unquestionable; his wisdom is our humbling reward.
Thank you to the Andrews in our lives, for standing there, day in and day out, our guidepost to the Elysium Fields.
After meeting with Andrew, I came home to rest and drifted into the Elysium Fields for my just reward.
Towering before me, the Goddess of Wisdom, spoke to me:
"Νέοι, Ελευσίνα, που έχετε εισέλθει στο ιερό μου πολλές φορές από τότε που ήσασταν ευλογημένοι με το φως.
Συνεχίστε το ιερό ταξίδι σας, διδάσκοντας στους νέους το δρόμο για το «Φως» μέσα τους. Η πορεία σας είναι σαφής, το ταξίδι σας γίνεται μικρότερο, σύντομα θα είστε δίπλα σε αυτούς που έζησαν πριν από σας, οι οποίοι έδειξαν το δρόμο: Οι guideposts του (Αισχύλος, ο Αρχιμήδης, ο Αριστοτέλης, ο Κλεόβουλος (Κλεόβουλος ο Ρόδιος) της Ρόδου, Fu, Lu, και Shou, Περίανδρος, Chilon, Βία και ο Πιττακός, Diocenes, ο Επίκτητος, HEROPHILOS, ο Όμηρος, ο Μένανδρος, ο Ζήνων ο Κιτιεύς, Το Μαντείο των Δελφών, του Πλάτωνα, του Paul Tarsu, ο Επίκουρος, ο Πίνδαρος, ο Πυθαγόρας, ο Σιμωνίδης, ο Σωκράτης, ο Κομφούκιος, ο Σόλων, ο Charles-Louis de Montesquieu Secondat, François-Marie Arouet, ο Βολταίρος, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Μαχάτμα (Μαχάτμα) Γκάντι, Δαλάι Λάμα, Marya Mannes, Θωμάς Ακινάτης, ο John Locke, ο Αβικέννας, Vincent J. Lombardi και τώρα Andrew) είναι μόνο μια χούφτα σκόνη μέσα στην κλεψύδρα της ζωής")
(Young, Eleusis, you have entered my sanctuary many times since you were blessed with The Light.
Continue on your sacred journey, teaching the young the way to "The Light" within them. Your path is clear, your journey made shorter. Soon you will be next to those before you, who have shown the way. The guideposts of Aeschylus, Archimedes, Aristotle, Cleovoulos (Cleobulus) of Rhodes, Fu, Lu, and Shou, Periander, Chilon, Bias and Pittacus, Diogenes,Epictetus, Herophilos,Homer, Menander, Zeno of Citium, The Oracle of Delphi, Plato,Paul of Tarsus, Epicurus, Pindar,Pythagoras,Simonides, Socrates,Confucius, Solon,Charles-Louis de Secondat Montesquieu, François-Marie Arouet, Voltaire,Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi,Dalai Lama, Marya Mannes, Thomas Aquinas, John Locke, Avicenna, Vincent J. Lombardi and now Andrew, are only a handful of dust in the hourglass of life.)
I hope by now, young learners of The Light, you have gained a better understanding of your journey ahead of you. As you struggle in the "Age of Rage," know that such an experience is vital to your growth: One day, you will look back, and the glow of a smile will light your hearts. It is a time to be cherished; a visit to the "Luna Park" of possibilities, to experiment with the possible and the impossible:
A time for you to dye your wings, with invincible courage and ready for flight: You should not fear this time of joy but embrace it. Be cognizant of the fact that soon, very soon, when you are ready, like the Andrews of life, your own experiences, will serve as a guidepost to the young who follow. Your own children and children of others, who will look up to you and ask, "are you a wise Andrew"?
Sit back now and enjoy the following video, which gives you a sense of wonder of it all, spiced by the words of other "signposts," of wisdom; another "sense," of the Elysium. Nature's inspiration.
