The butterfly and the fly

Butterfly: And I am the voice inside your head that speaks to you of goodness and commands you like the angels of God are commanded.

Fly: Lo, I am the voice that speaks to you of a bickering and I confuse you so at times I put you to fight.

Me: But the voices in my head can they be compartmentalized; a good apart from the bad?

Yes they answered and the division is as sharp as between fresh water and spilled oil that is on top.

Me: But beautiful butterfly you come so seldom; You have left me to be attended by the fly, so I am in it's company always. Why do you do so?

Butterfly: if you keep yourself in muck then flies will come and it cannot be any other way!

Me: and what is the muck, how would I know?

Fly: the muck is a thing that engages your attention into a thousand parts; and it keeps it from staying WHOLE.

So with your attention divided you are weak and I the voice of your ego gain in strength.

I become the voice within that holds a dialog with you about petty issues; and I talk you into conforming against your will; and I put thoughts into you that are antagonistic of others.

These are the three voices in which I speak when I find you in weakness. (the 3 voices of the ego)

Butterfly: If your attention becomes WHOLE again you will be strong and the fly won't dare near.

So when you have rid yourself of all muck you will gain clarity; then I shall whisper to you so you are guided.

Gather your attention so that you can engage everything that comes to you fully.

  1. Faraz this is fantastic and very well conceived, orchestrated and dramatised.
