Platypus Dreaming: . . . a prophecy

 
9781503504493: Platypus Dreaming: . . . a prophecy

A prophecy brings common sense to the confusion of modern life, responding to its challenges in local and international conflict resolution, through remembering life's composition of widely divergent yet related parts. An alternative view of life's complexities, this novel is a modern-day take on an ancient way of seeing, placing the reader as the central character in a set of real-life circumstances, and confronting them wherever they find themselves. In many ways, the book is an initiation, taking you on a fascinating journey while deepening your comprehension of who and what you are and your place in the scheme of things. Disoriented and dissatisfied by the trite answers provided by compromised teachers and politicians alike, and perhaps lacking the experience and wisdom to judiciously negotiate life in the confusion of a world of apparent plenty, most people find themselves struggling to find representatives whose wise application of intelligence is the currency of their decision making. Where a balance of feeling and intuition equally weighted by logic and reason is absent, humanity is forced to conclude that society's rulers, whether financial or political, have abandoned representing life's common destiny as the foundation stone of humankind's finest aspirations. When morality is applied differently in different settings to gain advantage and cultures have a variety of spiritual and existential beliefs pitted one against the other, the step to terrorism, though seemingly incomprehensible, appears understandable to a mind pushed to its extremes, as it attempts to reconcile that which is apparently irreconcilable. Without prizing humanity as an interwoven part of nature's fabric, people are caught between a rock and hard place, but it is precisely there that Platypus Dreaming inspires hope.

About the Author:

Platypus Dreaming. A prophecy opens doors to an enhanced perception of humanity's capabilities, taking the reader on a journey of personal revelation as hidden layers of development, built over generations from stories shaping and logging humanity's developmental path, become exposed to unfurl the clothe of wholeness. Graeme Innes shows a language hijacked, the words used as colonizing swords rather than fulfilling their function as soul food. Designed to spark the mind and ignite individually useless snippets of experience, more and more, words have become the limiting, self-constructed bars to an asphyxiating, fireproof jail of social tyranny. Words and concepts have use-by dates, which are often extended at our peril. Like old wood, they become rotten, a rear-vision mirror reproducing the past ad infinitum, unable to fuel the raging fire necessary to cause a cathartic clearing of old mind debris, preparing for the new growth springing from last season's fertile seed. The relationships between spirit and worldly matters and philosophies taught to regulate their interactions are opened by words and concepts often damned by plasticity of meaning. Many are misinterpreted and become part of the dead wood, compressed and heated to make bio-char to nurture the roots of new growth.
