Yog! The mysteries in our world are nearly innumerable. Did you know there are animals who actually feast on wasps? They are known as ‘vespivores’. These include bears, badgers, bats, weasels, rats and dragonflies. But what about the nasty stingers? Some animals eat around them, others rub the wasp against a tree thus removing the stinger, and some just don’t care – they eat them raw and whole. Attsa some tough hombrés! What else is a mystery? When I erase a word with a pencil, where does it go? Whatever became of Rue Fontaine, singer for The London Dingbats? He lost his voice during a concert in Boston in 1978 and was never heard from again. The big question is why internet search engines have scrubbed all references of him and the Dings? What are they hiding? And least lastly and likely is why do dogs eat remote controls when there are plenty of pet store-bought chewies laying about the couch? Why do dogs think they’re entitled to everything what looks like a bone? Do dogs even think or do they live on ‘sniff-and-react’ instincts? Please, if you figure it out let me know.
He replied, “You’ve been given insight into God’s kingdom. You know how it works. Not everybody has this gift, this insight; it hasn’t been given to them. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears. That’s why I tell stories: to create readiness, to nudge the people toward receptive insight. In their present state they can stare till doomsday and not see it, listen till they’re blue in the face and not get it. I don’t want Isaiah’s forecast repeated all over again:
Your ears are open but you don’t hear a thing.
Your eyes are awake but you don’t see a thing.
The people are blockheads!
They stick their fingers in their ears
so they won’t have to listen;
They screw their eyes shut
so they won’t have to look,
so they won’t have to deal with me face-to-face and let me heal them.
