The Quest

The Quest

The Quest

So I asked history
“Do you have purpose?”

History divided consciousness from form
to reflect upon events swirling in a dance of love

And then replied,

“I am intelligent process
not predetermined
not random
influenced by the interaction of human and divine will.”

    Hi Alex, In the flowing of the night/ at the movement of the heavenly spheres/ here in the mountains at Linares de la Sierra/ above the Divine Madness, I read your poem backwards: “will divine and human ………”

    Should we go on in defining what “is this will”, (which is the beginning and foundation of the poem after my reading) what is its nature’? For J. Bohme it’s the Ungrund, a “pure will” which transform itself in “desire”. For A. Schopenhauer, it was a “blind will” and for Nietzsche a “will for power”, the same as for A. Adler, etc. what you say?

    Best Regards.
