Once upon a time there are was a …
Just a very usual God that had everything and was everywhere. But there was also Nature of things that was everywhere as well. One shinny morning following his good mood God glanced in the mirror that he always had close to him to keep himself in a good shape. Having everything and being everywhere as you may think is not an easy life. Mirror was the only thing that made God confident about himself and about everything that he observed each time looking at his face. This morning his face in the mirror was the same as always and there was only one
thing that was bothering him - the Nature of things that was everywhere. Obviously it was not enough space for both of them and that thought made this shinny morning not as shinny as it could be. Then, over a skinny latte God glanced into the mirror once again and quickly said: â€œMe is everything and everything else is whateverâ€? and turned into a Monkey.
As soon as that happened Monkey found in front of him a glass with some one on the opposite side. That someone was very funny and Monkey showed to him his tongue. Hi did the same and Monkey realized that some one is copying someone else. Monkey did not know what is reflection and he did not remember what happen just a moment ago. But at that particular moment Monkey got a clear idea that there is he - Monkey and there is something else. He did not realized that there is a mirror just in front of him that reflects everything and shows him his real face that actually did not changed. But at that time Monkey already saw that everything he is doing makes a difference and everything else that is around him is getting changed from what he is doing. He also got a clear idea that he can understand everything, all things around him by copying them. From that point of time Monkey had to learned many things. Copying, repeating, and actually completely messing up the Nature of things, by somehow he understood something. To be more correct, he did not understand but mainly copied and learned by his heart. But then something has happened. Something happened somewhere very deep inside of him. Something suddenly struck Monkey from the inside and so strong that he badly desired to jump, bite, and actually do many other things. That struck was so strong and his urge to jump and bite was so devastating that Monkey turned into a Lion.
Lion was handsome, playful, brave, and honest. He did not want to understand anything anymore. He did not want to repeat and to learn by his heart everything and everything else. His brave heart wanted to jump, bite, fight, and win! And that was exactly what he did. Soon he became strong and fast and in combination with his noble heart Lion had no one to compete with. He knew that there are few others like him somewhere but they all preferred to stay far away to keep their own privacy of being strongest, fastest and noblest. Lion already did not recognize his reflection in a mirror that still was very close. He did not remember what he was before he become a Lion. He just wanted to fight, bite, and get stronger and faster. That was exactly what he was doing until he got tired. That change was dramatic and not became obvious right the way. Lion has noticed that change only after years of his attempts to ignore it. He suspected in his changes the Nature of things, but he did not understand it anymore. The only thing he knew about Nature of things is that it is everywhere and nothing you can do with it. He would like to learn more about Nature of things to understand what is going on but actually he still did not want to understand anything but only fight, bite, and win. Then, pressed by two very opposite forces tired Lion turned into an Alligator.
Alligator Alligator was cute and even it is a strange adjective for an alligator his big eyes
were perfectly reflecting the Lion’s life, his noble heart as well as extreme urge to win. Although, Alligator was not able to jump like a Lion anymore he knew how to bite and actually did it very well. His skills of biting became even better with time so he would not need to change his position for hours thinking about his own things. One right bite always made a deal! He found that there are many others around him. These were many different animals: jumping and running lions, wolfs, rabbits and other furry mammals; slow but extremely fast in one precise move reptiles like snakes, lizards, other alligators like him, and many other that he did not see close. Monkey where not around. Some of them actually were screaming on other animals from the trees but none one took monkeys seriously. These were the new rules and a new life. Although Alligator was not able to surpass slow but tricky reptiles he was enjoying biting jumping around foolish rabbits, wolfs, and sometimes even lions. He completely forgot that he was someone else before and he did not know what to do next. His life became slow and monotone for years. He had a little idea what to do with everything that he learned by his heart as a Monkey and gnawed with his sharp teeth as a Lion. He felt that it could be something really big but to his sorrow he simply used what he learned in his life as much as it could to be helpful to the others. Why he would do that? Simply because others gave him something to bite for that. That’s it. He would work in that “zoo” as an Alligator for his entire life like many others. That definitely would happen that usual way if Alligator would not have a dream. He actually had a big dream of his whole life. Alligator wanted to fly and his desire to fly was so strong and his actual life was so borrowing that soon Alligator turned into a Moth.
Moth was graceful and almost unreal. It was impossible to jump with him anymore and he also did not know how to bit. It was actually nothing that could
be done with him and even one gentle touch could destroy him in a moment. The only thing he was able to do is to fly but that was his dream for a long time and now his dream became his life. There was one more thing that made him different â€“ he was able to attract attention! Especially when he was very close to the big shiny lamp. Regarding his new life he actually did just the same things using everything that he learned by heart as a Monkey, gnawed by teeth as a Lion and sharpened by fast bites as an Alligator and he did not know what to do next as well as before. Because of that fact he simply attracted attention as an only thing he did well. Now he found around himself many other insects. These who before were just a buzzing noise now became a thousands and thousands creatures just like him. There were many others as well, but it was no fun with them anymore. Rabbits, wolfs, lions were simple foolish. Lizards, snakes, and alligators tricky and insatiable, and what the reason to even talk about monkeys.
Many other things happened after that but not as many as before. His memory was not good anymore and before Something has happened imprinted just a few things.
There was a Spider who was trying to convince that everything around is â€œThe Societyâ€? and all Moths must sit in a Spider web and return to the Society everything that they learned by heart as a Monkeys, gnawed by teeth as a Lions and sharpened by fast moves as an Alligators. Of course, Spider also attracted attention but he did it in a different way.
There were other moths, dragonflies, and many-many others who did not even present themselves but with whom it was very easy to fly. It was a nice to have with all of them the Society that Spider was talking about. It was easy and fast life and everyone touch each other only with a little moves of the air produced by their small tiny wings.
There was a feeling that it is very possible to be a Moth, Alligator, Lion and Monkey at the same time. There was a feeling that you can even choose whom and when you can be. There was also a strong anger on the Nature of Things that it will never happen. There was a fear to cease to be. There was also indifference to being.
There was also a feeling that all that time God remain a God and he had everything as before, and that he divided on Everything and Everything else just to get bigger. Because how else he who has Everything can grow other way? There was feeling that all that time somewhere very close there was a mirror that can show who is he are and what is Everything else.
There was also a big dazzling bright lamp that better than anything else was proving that Moth is still Moth.
There was also a new decision, happiness, and result, and desire to â€Ś RRROARRR again!!!
There was an Interest. In fact Interest was always there. Just not always seemed so. Interest to Everything! Because, even if you already learned Everythingâ€Ś
There is Something Else Yes? You here because of your interest, Right?
