Brian’s Reflection: Tuesday, April 17, 12

All mankind is divided into three classes:
those that are immovable,
those that are movable,
and those that move.

Benjamin Franklin, polymath.
He was born on this date, 1706

Ah. So. Sound familiar?

Some archetypes are embedded essentially in the human psyche. They ‘emerge’ if different ways in human societies.

God the “Father”: We blossom and flourish like leaves on the tree / and wither and perish .. but nought changeth Thee.

God the “Son”: Thine Eternal Word, O Lord, lept down out of Thy royal throne, Alleluia (Antiphon for Matins of Christmas Day)

God the “Holy Spirit”: The Spirit blows here it wills.

And should we be surprised that this dynamic manifests itself in each one of us??

Clever man was Ben!
