Yes! No!

How necessary it is to have opinions! ..

How important it is to walk along, not in haste but slowly, looking at everything and calling out

Yes! No! The

swan, for all his pomp, his robes of glass and

petals, wants only to be allowed to live on

the nameless pond. The catbrier is without fault.

The water thrushes, down among the sloppy rocks, are going crazy with happiness. Imagination is better than a sharp instrument. To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.

Oh Mary, are you throwing a parable our way? We are to have thinking opinions of yes, no, yet you imply that we are at fault. Is it because of our opinions that come from paying attention? Are we saying yes to life, and no to our species? To thinking? To not being satisfied with what is before us? If you were a rabbi, I'd say you are using a rabbinic device in parable form that confused the readers. So that within all these contradictions there is only one thing unopposed - God. Is your God awareness? I don't think so because it appears opposed to opinion, to wanting, to being at fault. So what is your unopposed God? Perhaps in your world God too is opposed, and we, the reader, are left with nothing. And everything.

What is ultimate meaning for you? God/goddess?
