O then bespoke Joseph,
With words most unkind:
"Let him pluck thee a cherry
That brought thee with child"

O then bespoke the babe,
Within his mothers womb:
"Bow down then the tallest tree,
For my mother to have some."

Then bowed down the highest tree
Unto his mother's hand;
Then she cried, "see Joseph
I have the cherries at command."

Atlas surpasses all men in giant size.
He ruled the worlds last lands and that far sea
That greets the panting horses of the sun
And welcomes their tired wheels. A thousand herds
Roamed on his pastures and a thousand flocks,
Unchecked, untroubled by a neighbour's bounds;
And there were trees whose glittering leaves of gold
Clothed golden apples under golden boughs.

The place is calling you Aphrodite
Come to us here from Crete-to this holy
Temple:

Place of your most pleasing
Apple groves and altars smoking
Sweet with incense

Here where the waters trickle coolly
Through apple boughs, and the ground is shady
With Roses, down from the leaves that shiver
Sleep drops slowly

Here is a meadow, horses feeding;
Spring profuse with flowers, and breezes...

It is very well for a forester to believe that certain trees willfully kill all other varieties of trees around them and then conclude a specious "attitude" of trees.

Let him look again

What made the soil?
What provides the means of keeping the oxygen balance?
What makes it possible for rain to fall in other areas?

These willful and murderous trees.

And squirrels plant...

This universe is a tree eternally existing,
Its roots aloft,
Its branches spread below,
The pure root of the tree is Brahman,
The immortal,
In whom the three worlds have their being,
Whom none can transcend,
Who is verily the Self.

When Tzu-ch'i of Nan-po was on an excursion in the hills of Shang,
He marveled at a large tree there.
A thousand four-horses could have rested in its shade.
"What a tree that is!" He exclaimed. "There must be some marvelous stock in it."
However, when he looked at the smaller branches,
He found them knotted and twisted and unfit for beams or rafters...

Yeah I understand, the format is pretty clunky and time consuming, I still have to refresh my page a second time to see the words written by people, and if you have to do this EVERY time you go to someones page(and alot of friends whining to post on their journal), it can be pretty time consuming.
At any rate hope you are doing ok, if you need any back up on some topics in the forum just speak up, my window for free time has just expanded considerably and I can now do some good old fashoion dojo style forum debate with the likes of uptight and such heheh.
Take care and dont feel you have to do such extravgant journal entries, just giving current update, confirming you havent been swallowed into a cult; ritually sacrificing body parts when the moon is full, (which I am sure everyone here is probably thinking that has happened to you), will put all our minds at ease. eeek wink
