I have written a new article examining the symbolism in Dummling and the Three Feathers. Yes, another one from the Grimm Brothers. I'm having fun at it, and for anyone interested...

Understanding Hansel and Gretel [Feb. 2nd, 2006|07:17 am]

I have written a new article examining the symbolism in Hansel and Gretel. Interestingly, I am beginning to thing all of the Grimm tales were of an alchemical origin, unlike the Lang tales which see more pagan themed. I wasn't looking for this when I began, but I am learning allot from it, and finding it personally fascinating.

I found another interesting fairy tale written by the Grimm Brothers, called The Little Brother and Sister, and decided to write another article. Again, I was surprised to find alchemical symbolism, but there it was. It was fun exploring it, and I thought I'd share again, if anyone is interested.

As I was puzzling over fairy tales I ran across an interesting alchemical one and decided to write an article about it. If anyone is interested.

"Within the last century, Western science and physics have made a startling discovery. We are part of the world we view. The very process of our observation changes the things we perceive. As an example, an electron is an extremely tiny item. It cannot be viewed without instrumentation, and that apparatus dictates what the observer will see. If you look at an electron one way, it appears to be a particle, a hard little ball that bounces around in nice straight paths. When you view it another way, an electron appears to be a wave form, with nothing solid about it. It glows and wiggles all over the place. An electron is an event more than a thing. And the observer participates in that event by the very process of his or her observation. There is no way to avoid this interaction.

Eastern science has recognized this basic principle for a very long time. The mind is a set of events, and the observer participates in those events every time he or she looks inward. ... What you are looking at responds to the process of looking."

-Venerable Henepola Gunaratana, Mindfulness in Plain English 1991

"I need a sign to let me know you're here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere
I need to know that things are gonna look up
'Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head
When you feel the world shake from the words that are said

And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels"

As I was going through my notes during an extended retreat a couple of months ago, I noticed this entry which actually belongs in First Observer folders, but I thought it was interesting because it came down so fast that I had to type at super speed and the typos were interesting. I think I have other entries like this. I will have to continue looking. Read more...Collapse )
