Animal Spirits: The Whale

Standard

Through the Peacock's Eyes

whaleSince moving a few months ago, I have encountered many animal spirits in their natural environment. The most exciting have been during morning walks on the beach, which include seals, dolphins, and whales. I will write about the others soon, but today I will talk about the symbolism of the animal spirit, the whale, whom I have not only seen in person, but one also appeared in a Tea Leaves & Tarot Reading.

Whales are the largest known mammals, and animals, known to us, and they live in the immensely large and mostly unknown deep ocean waters, which symbolize our emotions, intuition, the depths of our psyches, and the unconscious. Whales are ancient creatures, who seem to have a wisdom and depth of understanding of nature that is just as old.

Whales communicate with other whales and possibly other sea creatures through a variety of ways: the melodic whale song…

The mountain gremlin Lungwort

Evils shadow grows longer

In which Globular Van der Graff, (Glob), Makepeace Terranova (Make), Byzantine Du Lac (Byz), Eponymous Tringthicky (Mous) and finally, curmudgeonly old Neopol Stranglethigh (Neo) seek out the truth about a stranger, assisted by Bejuss, the one eyed lisping raven.

~~~

As the long freezing days of winter gave way to the first signs of spring, an enigmatic stranger arrived in the humin village. He was an itinerant by the name of Eodor who made his living napping the finest flint tools, spearheads and knives in exchange for food and lodging. At first the villagers were wary of him. But he soon charmed them all, turning the heads of the women with his handsome appearance and pleasant nature, especially Mica’s intended, Agnitha, the daughter of the village shaman Yestin. But not all females fell under his spell. Eodor had been…

Hey… yes, you. Listen up, for I have a story to tell. That’s right, come a little closer, and pay attention, for this is a tale that I know to be true…


Once upon a time, there was a little girl who dreamed a lot. She dreamed when she was sleeping, and she dreamed when she was awake. In fact, she dreamed so much her family despaired that she would never truly be a part of the real world.

When she wasn’t dreaming, she read books; she read about knights in shining armour, beautiful princesses, battles and dragons, heroes and sorcerers, gods and goddesses, and it was only in her dreams and her books that she felt truly alive. She learned about honour, and courage, and love, and strength, and truth and wisdom, and sorrow and joy.

Then one day, she…

Cultivating the Mysterious Essence: on Authenticity

Standard

symbolreader

I. “The ancient masters cultivated the

mysterious essence.

They were profound, subtle –

beyond our ability to comprehend.

For this reason we cannot know them,

but we can try to describe their

existence:

Cautious, as if crossing an icy river in

winter.

Vigilant, as if surrounded by unseen

dangers.

Reverent, as if receiving honoured

guests.

As malleable as ice when it begins to

melt,

as unspoiled as an uncarved block,

as receptive as a vast and open valley.”

Tao Te Ching (15), interpretive translation by Robert Brookes, Kindle edition

II. “Know the male, but hold to the female.

Imagine a river flowing through a

valley,

never departing from its original path.

Do this and you will return to a state of

innocence.

Perceive the bright, but hold to the

dark.

Like a river, let yourself flow with

virtue,

and set a faultless example for the

world.

Do this and you…
