emerson: i remember, divine postman, we made it out of that dark place.

divine postman: through the darkness we found the light ralph. and, now, we stand together upright. conscious of the meaning for our suffering.

emerson: without suffering divine postman, there can be no joy. the sorrows and tears we shed point us toward our joy.

divine postman: suffering is temporary emerson, joy abounds forever.

emerrson: he who has a why divine postman, can bear with almost anyhow. we need to remember that a tree grows from its roots.

divine postman: the mass of man idolize the fruit and the leaves on the outside; and never think that what matters are the changes we undergo from within.

the ingenuity of man emerson has always been dedicated to the solution of one problem- how to detach the sensual sweet, the sensual strong, the sensual bright; from the moral sweet, the moral deep, the moral fair.

emerson: beauty is what we do not see divine postman. all that we have is born from within. the soul strives amain to live and work through all things, demanding absolute greatness to reveal greatness. it would be the only fact.

divine postman: life will test the truth that we believe in emerson. we need to persevere and endure knowing that something better awaits us above that hill.

with every influx of light comes new danger. we must bear witness to that light. and outrun the sympathy which gives such keen satisfaction, by our fidelity to new revelations of the soul.

emerson: the soul is progressive it is active, free and sovereign.

divine postman: in all we encounter we need to hold on to hope emerson.

emerson: hope is a tree divine postman sitting on the mountain where the grass does not grow.

divine postman: through hope we perceive great possibility. life is more precious than the dollar. we cannot replace the divine repositories of man with a commodity.

emerson: freedom is the most choicest of all joys, for it is learned through suffering and patience. aligning us with nature’s purpose.

divine postman: we must understand that all things move emerson and never remain in one place. and to harness all the gifts of movement bestowed upon us, we need to live simply knowing that through nature we are self-sufficient.

emerson: oh! what a piece of work is man divine postman. how noble in reason. how infinite in faculty. in form and moving how express and admirable. in action how like an angel. in apprehension how like a god. oh! the beauty of the world divine postman! the paragon of animals.

divine postman: he is all that lives emerson. born to be king and queen

graeme: every first world country divine postman benefits at the cost of a third world country.

divine postman: indeed friend cheap labor is what corporations implement to maximize their profits.

we can only be rich when we live from within cultivating our own souls and not leaving it up to institutions, books, and entertainment. sustained wealth stems from within.

graeme: we must speak what we know divine postman and not what we have heard from another but what we ourselves have lived.

divine postman: keep asking questions graeme and speak the truth in hard words. the mass of man choose to conform, and destroy themselves in the process.

let us be content with nature’s simple providence remaining rooted in our truth. the greatest of all men is he who has paid the highest price. he is the monarch of wisdom.

graeme: the value of money divine postman, is reflected in what one is prepared to give up for it.

at most times, it appears to me that money only serves as a means to affect your desired end. however, we must also consider the end result of our desired end.

divine postman: even our ends graeme become recycled means for what is awaiting us. for example one might choose to buy conventional produce another choosing organic food. the former sees conventional food to be merely an end or rather a source of his enjoyment whereas the latter in choosing organic produce is investing in his health.

graeme: it is all perception divine postman, and which perception is right or wrong is reflected in the sustenance of it.

divine postman: indeed, what we need to understand is that every perception will lead you down a path and the best path is one that liberates your soul.

graeme: everything has two handles friend beware of the wrong one.

divine postman: when the body is unhappy so will the soul be sad. we can only transcend through pain. as we suffer we reach the roots of our being.

graeme: in order for a tree to yield a greater harvest, it needs to go through the process of pruning. and in the beginning it will be painful but in the long-term it will be worth all the sacrifices.

divine postman: all things are done according to your faith friend. one need not despise small beginnings graeme, in the beginning there will be more input but overtime there will be less input and more output.

graeme: and when the output comes it floods in as if it were hiding somewhere. the muse whispers in secret but blooms in public. there is purpose and meaning in all that we do.

divine postman: you can only reap what you sow graeme. every act rewards itself friend, or, in other words, intergrates itself, in a twofold manner.

first, in the thing or in real nature; and secondly in the circumstance, or in apparent nature.

graeme: a stagnant body divine postman, is a stagnant mind. the personal computer is the bicycle of the human mind and dramatically amplifies our innate human abilities.

divine postman: cycling is a human need. i believe in traveling, i believe in exploring, i believe in reading and i believe in writing.

graeme: the most efficient form of traveling divine postman and exploring is with the bicyle. when we travel by foot we can only achieve a limited amount. but we expand our ability with the bicycle and degenerate in our state when traveling with the coach.

samantha: you cannot receive forgiveness divine postman, or have a sense of peace, when you are not prepared to give up something.

divine postman: we are ignorant sam of this truth: everything we accumulate comes at the cost of oppressing another human being. all goods are sourced at cheap labour. what will you have, quoth love? pay for it and take it.

samantha: i find that in all we do divine postman we always want to take but never give. our bellies are filled with lust.

we never question the character of the goods that we consume. the mass of man fear losing the things they have in order to gain all that nature desperately desires to give us.

divine postman: what good can come from us when there is no good within. a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

with all the habits we adopt in our life, we either build or destroy the subconscious mind.

samantha: it is what you do with what you are given that matters divine postman. the soul loves to create and as we create, we align ourselves with the almighty effort of nature.

the moment we begin to act in the state of an unlimited command of pleasure we create a passion for ruining ourselves and everything else through self-indulgence.

divine postman: the human heart can never have enough sam, which is why self-discipline needs to be a priority in our lives.

it is an incredibly prosperous age we live in and the youth continues to destroy themselves through self-indulgence.

we must eat not for self-indulgence but rather for nourishment. we do not need to take more than what is necessary.

through her eternal providence nature will give each man according to his needs and when he has more he is to give.

samantha: philosophy calls for plain living, but not for penance divine postman. our simplicity is a means through which we can share our life with all men.

divine postman: and we may perfectly well be plain and neat at the same time.

samantha: wealth is harnessed within divine postman. when men visit our homes they should marvel at who we are and not what we have.

divine postman: the self-helping mortal, who takes the hardest road, will be greeted with love, peace, and joy as fragrant as the flowers in the spring. all things will obey him, glory is his.

samantha: for him divine postman all doors are flung wide open. all eyes follow with desire.

divine postman: but the mass of man aim low sam. and as they aim low they reap low. they are unstable in their frame, crooked through self-indulgence and unstable in their thinking.

samantha: we suffer amputation and are thus disproportionate. the individual parts exceed the sum of the whole. we do not treat the most delicate parts of who we are with care.

divine postman: nature’s scholar is the torch-bearer of love. imparting hope to the meek.

mbuso: nothing will change divine postman if the subconscious does not change.

divine postman: and for the subconscious to change friend, implies the entire stripping of the human body and the mind.

mbuso: we must destroy in order to rebuild. true change can only happen when we change our habits. the subconscious mind operates based on the habits we adopt.

divine postman: which poses the question mbuso, does the conscious mind exist at all?

mbuso: yes, it does divine postman. but it is only a small fraction of who we are. we need to break through the conscious mind to reach the never-ending depths of the subconscious.

divine postman: in other words our trueselves lies in the subconscious.

mbuso: schooling fails divine postman because it appeals only to the conscious.

divine postman: and as it aims at the conscious mind, it destroys the subconscious because we end up adopting unhealthy habits.

late nights, early mornings, coffee and unhealthy food become a part of who we are. what schooling does through its teachings is separate us from nature. we neglect our health and never explore the joy of sleeping on the floor.

mbuso: our society is sleep deprived divine postman, sleep is a critical part of who we are. the more sleep we get friend, the more refreshed and renewed we feel. imagine sleeping for a year, how radical will your life change.

divine postman: it will be as though a man were rising from the dead, seeing his divine nature for the first time.

mbuso: but to pursue optimal health divine postman comes at a cost. freedom and sacrifice go hand in hand. it is not sleep that will transform you into a divine being, but the beginning of getting to know yourself.

divine postman: and when we embark on this sacred journey we begin to shed away the old and make room for the new. people do not love themselves mbuso. they choose anything but spending time with themselves.

mbuso: society is in conspiracy against the manhood and womanhood of everyone of its members. the only right is what is after my constitution, the only wrong what is against it.

divine postman: all good is in the sun friend. and for the knowledge in this sovereign light to mould our dna, the body needs to become water. when the body is water, it is able to absorb knowledge much faster.

mbuso: the vital resources of every animal and vegetable are demonstrations of the self-sufficing and therefore self-relying soul.

animals and all plants in nature are self-reliant. they trust in the inborn knowledge they have within.

divine postman: the bended tree recovering from a strong wind mbuso; the succession of the seasons and the migration of animals are testament of this truth friend.

nature’s truth can never be substituted by man made inventions. all that does not conform to nature will never be free. water cannot run uphill.

mbuso: nature sustains her own being divine postman, yet man cannot do this simple thing of living from within. he rejects nature’s sublimity and trusts in some external possession.

divine postman: he sees himself to be some third estate. separated from nature and his own constitution. if you do not believe in yourself, you will never believe in anything.

mbuso: let us not rove divine postman; let us sit at home with the cause. let us stun and astonish the intruding rabble of man, books, and institutions. by a simple declaration of the divine fact.

divine postman: bid the invaders take the shoes off from their feet, for love is here within. let us whip them with our simplicity

mbuso: and our docility to our own law demonstrate the poverty of nature and fortune beside our native riches.

divine postman: our natural genius is infinite. remember your roots, for in them all your fortune is found.

mbuso: all that we receive is in proportion to how deep we reach.

athi: those born privileged divine postman are the poor ones.

divine postman: there is only so much they can experience friend. although they are rich materially; they will be poor spiritually.

they will always be limited in their accomplishments and will not leave a dent in the universe, because of their narrow perspective.

athi: they must forsake everything to taste the sweetness of life. and be as simple as the every day street dweller, who has cast all things and remained in his being. happy in his own skin.

though bitter it is to drink nature’s waters, in the beginning; however, with time, every scar will heal. whoever has never experienced poverty will never attain true riches.

divine postman: we consider the people who live on the street as being poor not knowing that those who are really poor are the ones who live in quiet desperation in their homes.

whoever has failed to overcome their fears will never find fulfillment. he will never be free.

athi: the street dweller is much stronger than the city doll. he can adapt to the conditions of nature. and will go barefoot his whole life without getting sick.

divine postman: it is an interesting point that you make athi. and the reason why they are in impeccable condition, is because they are always outdoors sleeping at the bosom of nature.

while the government employee dies in his home with all the food that he eats with his wife and kids. and the entertainment that never serves to teach.

athi: the more distant we become from nature the more distant we will be from ourselves. marriage and a family serves as an excuse for man’s self-indulgent ways.

divine postman: our society is incredibly selfish, how can we use so much energy and so much water only to feed a small number of individuals in a household.

athi: while the majority of the world goes hungry.

divine postman: i dare say that marriage, and a family are a curse. they are a form of institution on their own and seek to act partially, to sunder, to appropriate.

athi: while the world is whole and refuses to be disparted.

divine postman: the most noble pursuit athi is knowledge, wisdom and discipline. and they come only to those who are naked before nature.

athi: so much of nature do we know divine postman, so much of our minds do we possess.

divine postman: what a home and a family merely do is that, they create a sense of comfort and security.

athi: the cost of having a family is losing our matrimony with nature. we lose the best of life’s experiences because we chose to settle down.

and thus we spend all our lives being a shadow of who we are; confined to walls. never understanding the rush of blood that nature gives.

divine postman: nature is made abundant to remind man of his roots. in spite of all distractions man is to look for refuge in the mountain and the sea.

athi: what can heal every scar and wipe every tear is the beauty of nature. the dog, when he is troubled after being wounded in battle, lays down on the earth to find rest and healing.

divine postman: the earth communicates to him in frequencies of love and so he feels comfort. and never ceases to run around barking and playing joyfully.

athi: and so the creatures of the field embody the strength and grace of nature.

the last judgement

 

okuhle: the african has adopted european culture divine postman; he has looked away from his true past, and does not reconcile today with all the suffering of his yesteryears.

divine postman: it is not only the african okuhle, but also the european and the asian have all looked away from nature and become exiles in the city.

i find okuhle that in all we do, we are always looking forward and as a result forgetting our labour of yesterday.

okuhle: the sun is no longer beautiful in the eyes of man. athena made life to be simple and made the owl so man would remember true knowledge.

divine postman: the laws in nature okuhle are written in the soul of every mortal. and they are interpreted in the mind as proverbs, which are always the literature of reason.

okuhle: or the statements of an absolute truth divine postman, without qualification.

divine postman: it is only nature that can guide us friend. proverbs is the only true knowledge that will endure in the end. the knowledge in the city sprouts quickly but has no roots.

in all we do, we fear confronting ourselves and waste all our time in trivial things most of all cooking. yes, we need to eat but must never forget that time is not to be wasted.

okuhle: we must throw away the rule book and seek new ways that the previous generation failed to see. time is the greatest gift unto all men.

divine postman: fruit is the best food we can eat friend. it saves time and nourishes the body in a way that puts our efforts of food to shame.

what is most simple is most powerful. through the process of cooking we destroy all that is good in food.

okuhle: and when you tell people that you can live off raw fruits and vegetables they get frightened.

they can never conceive the possibility of giving up meat and cooked foods altogether, which only serve to clutter the belly and entertain the tongue.

divine postman: all we do is put junk into our bodies friend. our bellies are full but our bodies are starving.

all we are to do on this earth is take proper care of our bodies and minds through observing the harmony between animals and nature and seeking to imitate that.

when you watch animals okuhle, they  eat, rest, move, and eat. they are never short of energy or require assistance from a machine to carry their bodies. even unto their old age and grey hairs animals are able to support the weight of their body.

however, in the case of humans our body becomes idle with the food that we eat and subsequently our nature will become comfortable and stay for too long in one place. we cannot even walk long distances anymore, let alone cycle from one city to another.

okuhle: people are lazy divine postman. they find refuge in eating meat, dairy and processed foods. they sleep on beds instead of laying on the ground. it seems all that is not in nature weakens and in the end destroys the human body.

these couches, this food, these telescreens, these beds all fulfill the purpose of breaking down the body.

we start settling down divine postman and become comfortable and warm for too long because there is no movement within us. the food that we eat and the habits we adopt clog up our blood cells and we fail to reason; the outside will stem from the condition of the inside.

we need to challenge ourselves divine postman and embrace new environments because they will constantly teach us about who we are.

divine postman: when we move to a different environment we learn more of what we are capable of and see that there is an infinite amount of greatness within us. however, what will enable us to manifest that greatness is having faith.

okuhle: beauty will follow you wherever you go friend. love is the footsteps that you take.

divine postman: we are all given an artform to master. and the deeper we go, the more truth we will find. only the strong will continue.

horse-studies

emerson: instead of man thinking divine postman; we have the bookworm.

divine postman: hence the book learned class emerson, who value books, as such: not as related to nature and the human constitution.

emerson: but as making a sort of third estate with the world and soul.

divine postman: hence the restorers of readings, the emendators, the bibliomaniacs of all degrees. this is bad.

emerson: books are the best of things divine postman, well used, abused, among the worst.

divine postman: what is the best use then? what is the one means which all things go to effect?

emerson: they are for nothing but to inspire friend. to teach one to make informed decisions. i had better not see a book than to be warped by its attraction clean out of my own orbit. and made a satellite instead of a system.

divine postman: independent of your own thinking; and not replacing your natural genius but renewing it.

should the sky that we look upon tumble and fall destroying all that i own; i will learn to be content with what has remained. because i have found me.

emerson: yes, yes, divine postman. the one thing in the world worth beholding is the divine soul- the soul free, sovereign, and active. this every man is entitled to.

divine postman: a greater kingdom is found within. the soul active sees absolute truth and utters truth or creates.

emerson: in this action divine postman it is genius; not the privilege of here and there a favourite, but the sound estate of every man. in its essence it is progressive.

the first in time and the first in importance of the influences upon the mind is that of nature.

divine postman: the book, the college, the school of art, the institution of any kind stops with some past utterance of genius. this is good say they, let us hold by this. they pin me down!

emerson: they look backward and not forward. but genius always looks forward. the eyes of man are set in his forehead, not in his hindhead.

with reverted look divine postman man is always lamenting the past and not living for today. thus like a child who spills milk he is spilling the riches before him. wasting time as he drowns in dispair.

divine postman:if riches increase they are increased that use them. whatever talents may be, if the man create not, the pure efflux of the deity is not his. cinders and smoke there may be but not yet flames.

emerson: we are all born with equal opportunity divine postman but our labour does not yield equal outcome.

although the wide earth is full of good no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of land which is given him to till.

divine postman: each man is in charge of his own fate emerson. let him not blame the immortals because of all his misfortune.

but understand that through his misfortune he will find his good fortune.

emerson: there are creative manners, and there are creative actions, and creative words. that teach us how to better communicate.

actions, words, that is indicative of no custom or authority, but springing spontaneous from the mind’s own sense of good and fair.

divine postman: man hopes but genius creates- for the good of man and the attainment of glory he endures.

regardless of all dangers he is confronted with, genius will remain upright in virtue and honor. assuring the rest of man that to create is the proof of a divine presence.

emerson: and so genius divine postman must take risks and not hold where he is comfortable. through the different environments he finds himself in, he will learn how to adapt.

he must learn with movement and live an abundant life constantly transforming himself. the road will answer all his questions.
