Make Up A Story (REVISED)


An article on a spiritual website tells us to make
up a story about our origins – the origins of man.
Follow imagination wherever it leads, only believe
in totems, animals and stars; whatever comes into
your mind, accept it as data from the universe –
make up your own biological and spiritual identity

Surely if one remains calm, doesn’t go undressed
dancing in a field, it cannot do harm, but I don’t
relate to any of the spiritual animals – oh no, I do
associate with crocodiles & dolphins; then these
I thus must have been in a previous life according
to their logic – luckily it doesn’t have an

Effect on me now. As for a star, I’m attracted to
none; my only hope’s they don’t fall on my head…
Seems to me a spiritual awakening to both of our
biological and spiritual origins is still too many
light-years away – or maybe I’m watching far
too many James Bond movies…
