Smile and Remember

 

Here’s a CWG: “God wants you to know” by Neale

nothing costs as little and is worth as much as a smile.

Relax, let yourself smile, and see the light come back to you tenfold.

Which is a good reminder… since last March 20, 2013 wa

Anyhoo… lately the past few weeks… I’ve encountered many “orphans”. What is the message? In Bohol, there were 2 orphans I’ve met… I’m messaging one who has become quiet close past few days who is an orphan as well… when I went to Tagum, I met another orphan.

and I’m reading a book.. and guess what? the male lead is also an orphan…

Mmmm? What is the message??

Here’s an excerpt from the Bible:

Isiah 1:17 –┬áLearn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

According to archetypes:

The mythic orphan established as a convention of mythology beginning in the creation myths of the world, is still going strong in the box office. Harry Potter, Luke Skywalker, Superman, Batman, Spiderman, are among the better known contemporary reincarnations of the archetype.

Tristan, like King Arthur and a host of Celtic heroes, are both bastards and an orphan. Just as Harry Potter is both a foundling and an orphan, which Freud and Jung refer to as overdetermination of symbols. The associated motifs of the foster parents and the precocious and exceptional gifts of the orphan-hero are conventions of the motif.

As a psychological symbol it can be interpreted as a metaphor of our existential condition. The orphan is a symbol of the quest/ion of origins and identity i.e. the quest for Selfhood. “Who am I?” is the archetypal mystery embodied by all mythic orphans and their quest are always in part or in whole – a search for origins, true nature and identity.

So, I guess that’s about it…. and it’s meaning. I feel those people I’ve met are destined for great things and those who would stay quiet a bit longer in my life… my job is to lead and journey with them back to love. It’s also a good reminder to look within… and mull over “Who am I” … my origin.. my true identity – in Spirit.
