“For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Long, long ago, in the days when the sun knew everyone by name, a powerful Seer, named Seep, lived in a famous town that exists in the space between your eyes. The Seer was known across the land for his ability to not only see the future, but for his particular skill at reading the minds and thoughts of others; both living and dead. Many traveled from other lands to consult with The Great Seep, as he was fondly called, and each person left muttering that indeed, The Great Seep had the powers of claiudience. “Ah,” they said. “He is a great mind reader!”
Before each consultation, The Great Seep would take a cleansing bath, gather his divining tools, spread his prayer mat by the large window in his home, and facing east, in the direction of the rising sun, he would sing praises to the gods and ask for their wisdom and guidance. They obliged.
As time went by, the powerful Seer became rich and proud, as many of his clients were business merchants who needed answers on how to expand their businesses or solve issues with their competition. The powerful Seer, now an expert on all forms of communication, would sit before his clients, repeat a few incantations and fall into a deep trance. Then, he would perform his mystical tasks, gather the information he needed and pass it on to the clients who waited eagerly for answers to their concerns. With each successful outcome, his ego and his fees grew, until even his family found his manners intolerable.
“The universe is transformation; our life is what our thoughts make it.” Marcus Aurelius
One day, a handsome, elegantly coiffed man walked through the door unannounced. He seemed in a hurry and immediately asked to meet with The Great Seep. The assistant informed the handsome man, whose name was Sundiat, that appointments were required and that the Seer was busy. An argument ensued, and the commotion brought other members of the household into the waiting area; including The Great Seep’s beautiful daughter, Sair.
When Sair saw Sundiat, her heart tumbled out of her mouth, and reaching out a hand, she beckoned to him to follow her. Sundiat turned to meet her gaze and, as if in a trance, followed Sair out the back door. Soon after, The Great Seep called on his assistants to find out what the visitor wanted and upon being informed that Sair had escorted the handsome stranger out the back door, he panicked. He immediately sent out an alarm, far and wide, across the land, beyond the seas, to everyone, to help find his daughter and the handsome stranger…
Alas, to everyone’s dismay, neither Sair nor Sundiat could be found; not at home, nor at sea. Many called on the Seer to use his gifts and his innate powers to find them. But try he did and all he saw was a golden veil and no revelation… Even the sun would not unveil the secret. As murmurs spread across the globe, a question hung in the air: How could The Great Seep read minds, see answers for the great and the small, but he couldn’t see or read the mind of one close to his heart, through his own door? via eof. Hmmm mmm 🙂 What are your thoughts? Why couldn’t he find his daughter? Have a Wonderful International Women’s Day!
