"So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen."~Matthew 20:14
(Alpha & Omega)
-so, this post was to drop on fool's day as this fool was out of town for the weekend. Alas, this fool even botched that. . . Interestingly, my birthday weekend (& The Libyan Sibyl's) took me to The Sawtooth National Recreation Area, the same place where the children's film Alpha & Omega was set( partially--it was divided between Idaho & Canada). My thought w/ this post before the weekend as I composed it, was the novelty of the proximity between April Fool's Day and Easter--The Omega, the last, and The Alpha, The First. An interesting little tidbit, is how oftentimes with wolves, the pack omega--the Joker--will sometimes leave his pack and become a lone wolf eventually forming a new pack in which he is the Alpha. "So the last shall be first . . ." I learned that, watching the special features on Alpha & Omega w/ my kids a month or so ago. The thought with this little birthday celebration here though was illustrating that fool and king are one. Remember Jesus' line, "I am The Alpha and Omega." All Four One. (did you know that there were four characters in The Three Musketeers?) So the truth of this post is that Going The Distance requires you to meet me halfway!
and now back to your fool's day celebration. . . .
Who's the bigger fool?
The Omega or The Alpha?
The Fool King Lear
"I Am The Alpha and Omega"
(beginning/end, birth/death, something/nothing)
and the last shall be first. . .
Mary visits the Roman emperor and greets him with “Christ has risen”. The emperor replied that Christ can no more rise again than this egg can turn red. At that point the egg in his hand turned blood red. She then continued to preach Christ’s resurrection to the stunned emperor. This is the most common story I have heard and it is only associated with Mary Magdalene.
The second story is less common. Boiled eggs were a common food in Jesus’ time. So Mary Magdalene and the other women took boiled eggs with them to the tomb on Easter morning. When they arrived at the tomb they discovered it was empty and met the risen Lord. As a sign, their eggs turned red. (Michelle Ziegler)
The wizard was very happy and satisfied looking. He sat down and reached out his hand to me and had me sit down beside him. As we watched the boy he put his left arm around me tenderly and placed my head on the left side of his chest near the shoulder.
He said, ``It's all in the egg.''
sounds quantum dude.
a little foolish too. . . .
Alpha or Omega?
meet me halfway?

Man, the banished Adam, seeks to pass from the outer court of the Sanctuary (the exterior universe) into the sanctum sanctorum, but before him rises a vast creature armed with a flashing sword that, moving slowly but continually, sweeps clear a wide circle, and through this "Ring Pass Not" the Adamic man cannot break.
The cherubim address the seeker thus: "Man, thou art dust and to dust thou shalt return. Thou wert fashioned by the Builder of Forms; thou belongest to the sphere of form, and the breath that was breathed into thy soul was the breath of form and like a flame it shall flicker out. More than thou art thou canst not be. Thou art a denizen of the outer world and it is forbidden thee to enter this inner place." (Manly P. Hall)
In Egyptian mythology, Ptah was the deification of the primordial mound in the Ennead cosmogony, which was more literally referred to as Ta-tenen (also spelled Tathenen, Tatjenen, etc), meaning risen land ...
