There are many bike paths where I live. Most have a line painted down the middle dividing the paths, one side for bikes, and the other for walkers, joggers or what have you. Also to make it simple, there are icons of stick people showing what’s up and where to do what. It’s not always fun to be on the bike paths, but today as I did my 15 miles……….
A brief history in the making of the Land called TUDES, ruled by the twins, Godatta, and Badatta, born at the same moment over and over.
He woke not knowing where he was
however, what he did know was this was frightening, this place was frightening. All eyes and all faces wore the mark of fear.
‘How did I get here’ he said to himself
‘This is the place you did chose to be’ came a voice
“Where is this place?”
“TUDES is east of Three Five, west of a Knight, north of Mounds and south of Lockwheel
“These are strange names to me. Who lives here, and why am I here?”
“TUDES was once nothing, it had no ruler save for the One.
Then came the Red ones, then came the white ones, then there were Red and White.
At a point in time most Red ones were no more, it was then only the white ones.
Later came the Black ones. That being so, it was only White ones and Black ones.
What few Red ones remained hid and live’d a life of pain.
Only White ones and Black ones until the coming of the Yellow ones.
White, Black and Yellow ones then until the arrival of the Brown ones. White, Black, Yellow, Brown and the few Red ones who hid in pain.
“As each of them came, also came the Dual Spirit of Self, Ruler Brothers of a Kind, Godatta, and Badatta, but so different and their core. What they did and what they do made and make all the difference in the lives of those living in TUDES.
“Today Badatta rules, that is why there is fear in eye of each who fight for space here east of Three Five, west of Knight, north of Mounds and south of Lockwheel.”
“Is there no hope for loosing all this fear and the ruler replaced?”
“Let me ask this of you, will you be the first to follow Godatta in all you do? For Godatta means good, respect, peace. Will you be the first to give space on the narrow road so many fight hopelessly to control?. There is no other way, and that may be why you are here today, that others may see through the fear by what YOU do an follow suit. That is the only way.”
Thus is the end of a brief history in the making of the Land called TUDES, a place ruled by twins, born at the same moment over and over again, Godatta, and Badatta, east of Three Five, west of Knight, north of Mounds and south of Lockwheel.
Someday there may be no need for a painted line down the middle of our paths, maybe only the icons will be enough.
Maybe someday, maybe……..but not today.
