Ice Age Ahead (iaa)   

Erica's Flower Garden

by Rolf A. F. Witzsche
explorations from my novels


God is Mind:
 a singular movement, infinite in beauty, unbounded in expression,
one in quality and intention for good;
all nature whispers this to us,
and so we whisper too,
cautiously and hesitantly
while what we whisper is destined to become a grand song.

An advanced scientific platform for healing is staged in the above context in my novel, Discovering Love, where a discovery challenges the heart to leave the doldrums behind, of a dreary and multiply divided world, and to touch the fringes of the freedom of reality that we are all challenged to reach for. 

In the story Erica explains herself with a profound metaphor aiming to raise the identity of another.

Erica's Flower Garden

Are you like someone who lives in a beautiful garden that has hundreds of types of flowers growing in it, but who is bound by some code of ethics to look at only one single flower, and none other? Of course, living there, you are aware of the rich profusion in the garden, all the colors and shades of colors, and the delicate forms that have unfolded in the sunshine. Still, you dare not to look at them, because of your commitment to the one single flower. You tell yourself that there is no need to look further, because, as the old saying goes, once one has seen one flower one has seen them all. Ah, but out of the corner of your eye you notice that the saying is not true. So, one day you protest against the code of ethics that had narrowed your vision to only one single flower. You open your heart to the rich profusion there is all around you. You kneel down where you stand, and admire one of those other flowers that you had not allowed yourself to look at before. Suddenly you find yourself immensely enriched by its fragrance, its shape, and its hues of color. As a consequence of this experience you stop, and take it all in, you drink in that beautiful moment, you store it away as a memory for all those other days.

Most people, if they are honest with themselves, get to this point in a dozen years. Some take longer, and some never get there. Those who never get there, are usually blind to life. They either don't live at all or tend to play cruel games, games that are focused on power, wealth, prestige, rape, murder, crime. Also, there are some who never get married at all, who may be totally blind to the garden, or who, in the other extreme, are so deeply aware of it that they can never shut out anything of the beauty of life. So they remain unmarried, because they can't meet what the conventions demand. But those are few, and few of them are truly happy, are they?
