The experience of angels and beasts are founded in more reality than that of man. For angels are the embodiment of LOVE’S pure intelligence and beasts the embodiment of LOVE’S pure instinct; both devoid of the illusion of fear, that burdens the spirit of mankind.
Therefore, to choose the experience of human flesh is the least real thing one can ever BE, as the human body’s lustful desires, are but the shadows of fear cast by the light of LOVE one really is.
And so when at last one faces their fears, embraces their shadow self, one will find they are grasping at only mist, that disappears into the dawn, of one’s enlightening; pure LOVE, angel and beast, intelligence and instinct bound together infinitely…
“The angel is free because of his knowledge, the beast because of his ignorance. Between the two remains the son of man to struggle.” ~ Jalaluddin Rumi
