Tales from the other side

[a pastiche in prose]

It began with a realization

that a life bent to others’ expectations

-  no matter its excellence -

lacked the spice of self-satisfaction.

And so starts the journey

of self-deception

for the search of the ‘ideal’

soon proved a foolish reveal.

Here the experience

of recrimination and accusation

cut so deeply into myself

even as I bend to thrust at others.

“Oh, you foolish, foolish man...

Why do you search for such a pure life

when all around you so cleverly decree

Do unto others before they...

We had met way back, many, many lifetimes ago, and fell in love with such an ease that we never questioned it.  Our life was idyllic, sharing ourselves with no fear or ego, openly, trusting in each other and in the care we felt.... And out of it grew this abundant joy, one would say we shared one breath and one heart, in perfect union, together... so perfect was our Love that it survived even beyond Death, linking us together, fated to find each other in every future incarnations.

Again and again...

Settle down, settle down everyone... please take your seats... You two, stop bugging that Angel, and sit down already so we can start this meeting...

Yes, yes, I’ll tell you all about it ...

Are we all ready...good ...

For the sake of full disclosure this meeting will be recorded - in fact it has already been entered in your Akashic Records... Settle down, don’t grumble - you should know by now that the Lords of karma wouldn't have it any other way...and remember – whatever you choose will have con...

I’ll do my best to recall this Great Tale, but I ask for your patience if I don’t quite recollect every little detail - it was a long, long time ago and my memory is no longer sharp as it once was - Yes, even for one such as I, we do age, y’know, though not like Humans...but then Time was never soft of heart, and bound us all to Her whim  ... but I digress.

It all started at the very, very beginning...even before Creation... There was nothing - if this ‘nothing’ could ever be a thing - maybe it i...

Ok. I screwed up - I know that now...but you have to believe me, it really wasn’t my fault...it was all just a lark, a joke, no one was meant to get hurt ...

Please understand, I didn’t start this, it just all got out of hand...and the final explosion - I didn’t plan that, it shouldn’t have happened that way...it was just meant to let off some steam...you know what these human peasants are - ‘monkey-men’ indeed, and with such vile tempers too...they just went too far by reporting me - after all I...

My name is J-24, I am an experimental physicist specializing in Quantum research... and I think this is going to be our last chance... yet I fear many will choose not to take it...

The year is 2084 and our planet is struggling to survive... forget the global warming of our forefathers, our greatest sin was - and still is - pollution.

Fueled by our greed we contaminated our oceans, dumped toxins in the air, destroyed our natural habitats, and allowed most species to simply ... die ... and I fear we...

Love... what a magnificent experience ... but what can I say about it - how can I describe that subtlest of all feelings, that deepest of emotion, that hope we all search for...

Still, I must try, for to do otherwise will have it burst out of me - and so bear with me as I share my experience.

Love... Love is everything... but happy it is not ...

Yes, Love is passion - it is tears and fears and wondering awake at night if she too is thinking of me...

Love is the smile that rises to touch the lips, ju...

Life is a strange experience...

In my youth I was content – it was fun to get up each morning with no other care than to go out and play with my little friends...it didn’t matter if they were boys or girls, friends are friends, and the games were all that mattered.

Yes, a joyous time indeed, for my ignorance was my blessing...

As I grew a little older girls became strange creatures that puzzled all us boys, and so it was easier to stay away from them...and if they insisted on joining us, well then,...

She remembered it well - her sixth. birthday, the day her best friends left her...the day everyone told her she was “Too old to still have these fantasies...” and how everyone else thought she was “Y’know - weird, like... always talking to some unseen thing.  Don’t care if they say she’s got the gift, it’s still weird... She’s touched, she is... is not right, her always talking, talking as if real people were there...”

And so on her sixth birthday her mother told her it was time to stop - “Just s...

[set in Ancient India, at the time of the mighty Raj.]

The young man had spent many years overseas, studying the new sciences of alchemy and medicine, learning various mathematics and even the movements of the stars.

And even though he was  born in an exotic land, he was well accepted by the genteel courts of Europe.

He was friends with learned scholars from around the world, and called ‘colleague’ by people of great importance, leaders of countries and strong armies.

He had learned western etiquett...
