|Lucifer, the light-bearer, and
THE DREAM OF BEING
|The following excerpt from THE DREAM OF BEING: aphorisms, ideograms, and aislings, by Jack Haas, metaphorically describes the absurd, Luciferian effort required to shine in the infinite darkness with a light not connected to the Great Light of God.|
In the infinite expanse of unknown darkness, there is indeed a light, but it is unfortunately only a residual candle-end; a little flame fluttering on a charred, lifeless wick which floats sputtering in a vanishing drop of impure wax. And this you must solicitously carry about in the darkness, searching for the fatty remains of other spent candles that might feed your dying flame. Yes, there is a light, but it is barely discernable even though it be in your grasp. Oh, it is so dim and precarious, it hardly sheds enough light for the duties you must ceaselessly perform, in order to keep lighted the light.
|Jack Haas has been called "The Kerouac of the new millennium."(FW) He is a wilderness explorer, world traveller, and shares his time between British Columbia, Hawaii, Ireland, and India.
