The Fool​​






​​Fool dances a dance 
In a sleep in a dream,
Knows not where he'll go
Or where he has been.

They are tied to the oxen
And yoked to a plough,
Tied to each other
Through church
And a vow.
With a cross on a record
A cross on their heart,
What binds them together
Keeps them apart.

Fool he dances a dream
In our heart,
What binds us together
​Keeps us a part.


 





This is not a criticism of partnership but a statement of the loss of the Divine Masculine and Sacred Feminine expression within our relationships: the higher spiritual values.
 Institutionalised marriage was arranged during the middle ages by the Church of the time and the governments, to ensure the inheritance of wealth and property through the male line. It protected the power and wealth of the nobility and those with influence, and had little or nothing to do with love or higher spiritual agendas. The higher spiritual power of sexuality has been suppressed and we have been prevented from knowing the truth regarding our divine nature.


The poem was channelled from the authors of the image.


Description:
The image shows a young woman and a man who are tied together and simultaneously being forced apart by a jester character above them.  They are attached to a plough behind them and to two oxen infront. 
The man has two faces - the middle one doubles up as the Fool's foot. His expression suggests on one hand possession and obsession, and on the other bewilderment as the Fool's 'foot' forces them apart. The Fool represents unconsciousness.
There is a heart shape on the man's chest with a cross in it indicating a closed heart and a loveless match. I am also seeing that the shape of the man's chest represents a carriage compartment, and if you look carefully there is a small face in the back which is looking backwards (regressive). My instinct is that this is a priest. The woman appears ghost-like and empty. There is a flower growing behind them - a caricature of her feminine power. The 'whip' or vine figure on the plough represents dead feminine energy or death. The vine is wrapped around the young woman's ankles and is stopping her from moving forward, yet the oxen at the front are pulling them on. The only outcome is obvious and also suggests the forthcoming demise of this kind of institutionalised relationship.

 

The photo was one of several I took on 20th Nov 2016 when testing a Sony camera I had bought. I didn't actually see the medieval scene until 3 weeks later. The image is a bit blurred when enlarged, but still visible.
Can you see where the cropped image came from?
