An animal and a ManMan:
Animal, why do you tempt me?
animal: Because you do not yet understand.Man:
What causes you to take advantage of my ignorance?
animal: Your unwillingness to progress. Man:
It is that I am fearful of what I might achieve.
animal: That illusion, too, is a function of mine.Man:
It cannot be an illusion. It is far too real.
animal: This being what I want you to feel. Man:
What then? Shall I condemn you to all eternity for producing such veils before my eyes?
animal: Yet again you have allowed yourself to be fooled by my functions. You have placed all the blame upon myself, when it is you who allows me to exist, it is you who does not understand and it is you who is not willful. Man:
But it is you that hinders me.
animal: Do I? I have no chains around you, I do not have a hammer and nail nor a rope to swing. It is you who has taken comfort in my illusions, comfort in my lessons. Man
: Lessons? You have taught nothing except the meaning of fear. You are as foolish as I. I have learned nothing.
animal: You condemn me but yet I teach you how to progress. I present you with lessons in illusions so that Kali, The
Goddess of Deception may no longer have a hold over you. So that this cycle we are in is no longer the cycle that you feel you must obey. It is all an illusion, my friend. I am contrast to you and yet I teach you to be higher than me. Who then is the fool? It is you who is learning from an animal, Man.
