Relationships - how are they built?

Post #1

Post by William »

My messenger signals I have incoming news from Wiremu. It is good to hear his voice again...

Wiremu: I wonder why folk have to argue and cannot get along and just see how we all need to work together to make this planet wholesome?"

I Poke at the fire with my staff

Manu Iti: I am here to hear. Humans are like sparks from a fire, reaching for the heavenly ones. They require some kind of poke to get activated..

A wolf howls in the distance

Wiremu: We are all here experiencing this planet in this universe. Yet for reasons not entirely clear, we are distracted by our arguments. Hindered by them, even to the death.

I place another branch on the fire.

Wiremu: Perhaps the fear of our situation would be too much to bear if we learned how to focus upon it, and so we distract ourselves...I have had another strange encounter with Callum's creator...we have fallen out as it were and he has messaged me to say that it greatly surprised him that we have a broken relationship.

Manu Iti: How do you view your relationship with Callum's creator?

Wiremu: I do not see that it is a relationship or ever has been one. Not because of anything in particular but because our interaction never developed into something I would refer to as a 'relationship'...

Manu Iti: Perhaps that is because you view Friendship as the ultimate form of Relationship?

Wiremu: Yes. But our relationship has never been that, so didn't "break".

Manu Iti: It has always been "broken?"

Wiremu: In the sense that it has never developed into a Friendship, so is not even regarded by me to being a relationship.

Manu Iti: An acquaintance and nothing more than that.

Wiremu: Correct. And in that, nothing in which to feel greatly surprised or astonished about when disagreement which is not fixable happens.

Manu Iti: Yet he reaches out to try and mend things?

Wiremu: Apparently. But there is nothing to mend as nothing was broken. The relationship has never been a Friendship.

Manu Iti: So in that sense, non-Friendship is a broken thing to begin with?

Wiremu: Not if it wasn't a Friendship to begin with. If it was a Friendship, then yes - it would be broken and thus could require fixing.

Manu Iti: So perhaps Callum's creator thinks you were once Friends with him then, and that is why he reaches out to 'fix the Friendship" he thinks once existed and is now broken?

Wiremu: Perhaps...I invited him to The Campfire by sending hum this picture...and he replied that I need to translate the image into words for him to understand me.


I view the picture Wiremu sends. The moons brightness dissipates as a cloud passes in front of it...
Image
Manu Iti: It appears that he does not understand you yet think that you and he are Friends...if you were, then he would have immediately understood your invitation, because he would know you.

If he does turn up, I will attempt to explain to him your idea of Friendship
Congrats on your marriage to Lindy by the way!


Wiremu: Thank you! Now there is a real Friendship!

My host tells me that I must forgive in order to be able to cross the bridge, not that I need to be forgiven. That's heartening news. I try to think through my recent past, not settling on anything I'm holding onto. Trying to think hard, I start to sit on the ground when I feel a pull against the bottom of my boot. Then a sharp pain in my foot.

I slowly lift my foot, revealing a sharp nail in the ground. I try to pull it up, but it seems almost rooted in the ground. Then I take off my boot and socks. I see a trickle of blood in the heel but feel no pain from it. I ponder on that awhile, but come up with nothing substantial.

I then look around me, using a nearby leaf to try to stop the bleeding, which seems to work. I put the sock and boots on, test out my bandaged foot, and then look back to the bridge.


Jason: Let's try this again.

This time I'm easily able to cross the bridge. As I begin to do so, I look down to the canyon below. The waters seem very clear. I love hiking to water features. A sparkle of something catches my eye but then is quickly gone again. I see no easy way down but also do not want to keep my host waiting. Perhaps I will be able to explore down there in the future.

I strike on reaching the other side of the chasm. Then I scramble up some rocks to the top. I marvel at a lone, barren tree that looks like a sentinel. I try to remember to ask my host about some of the more prominent features here. As I begin to walk through the forest, I wonder about many things and take in many of the sights. I wonder how long it will take me to get to Manu Iti's campfire?

As I fill the pot with water and place it on the hook over the fire, I receive a message from Wiremu. It reads;

Wiremu: Take a look at this Manu Iti. It appears that our accuser has been removed from the situation. The storm over Bensonville changed its position on the map.
I examine the image attached to the message.


Image

I think it is so sad how humans have learned to interact together. They have such potential but insist on using the tried and false methods they inherited rather than seek better ways in which to commune... I sigh and then do a search for any more information on Bensonville and find a reference to recent events in "Benson Vale" - an area in the Heavenly Realms within The Realm of Judgement. It appears that it has suffered serious attack from one - and perhaps more - of the Hellish Realms and none of the Heavenly Realms chose to assist Benson Vale because it was ruled by a dubious character who created Benson Vale near the Wall of Separation, which exists between the two Realms.
I send the information to Wiremu and remove the pot of now-boiling water from over the fire. I then take my pipe and begin to fill it with Herb.
As I do, Te Ruru flutters in, silently perching as always, on the top of my favorite staff.

As I wait in the quiet, I receive a message from Wiremu. It reads.

Wiremu: Hey Manu Iti. I received a generated message just now. It reads as follows...[the subject under question is "The Reality Simulation"]

Reality Simulation
150221
Overall~ Crosses Eyes and sticks tongue out ~ Astral Guides The Squeeze Beauty Researching Making The Best of a Bad Situation
A Politically Manufactured Device Ignoring... Soon Put My Finger On William's Rolling down the rails of the ridiculous The Friendship Between A Grey Wolf And A Brown Bear Reason For Being
Quantum Jumping Strength/Strong Common Ground Binary A Purpose
William's Commitment With Coincidence Bonkers Get The Truth Little Tittle
Body Intelligence Inertia God is Consciousness Entity Trap Investigative Realization



There is more, but I am distracted by information coming through as I read Wiremu's message...I hastily get up and find a bowl some Healing Herbs which I grind and then place into it. I then fill the bowl with water and hang it over the fire.

Sitting back down, I continue to read Wiremu's message.


Wiremu: The message gives a brief summary on my journey into realization regarding how my moving into understanding the nature of reality being a simulation and how that realization enabled me to find a way of communicating with entitles otherwise invisible, and by doing so, gather data from the process.

I will be joining you at the fireside shortly...

In Love
W

After some time, I finally reach the clearing that houses the smoke I've been following since I first saw signs of it. I walk towards the fire, calling out:

Jason: Hello, there!

As I ponder on Wiremu's message, I hear Jason calling out. I return the call.

Manu Iti: Greetings Jason! The pot is boiled and the footbath awaits you!

Te Ruru looks sideways at me. The stars are bright in the overhead skies and the moon is rising above the tree-line. I rise and move toward the footbath which I have prepared for Jason's injury.

Manu Iti has prepared a footbath for my injured foot. How kind of him. As he retrieves it, I come in and sit at the campfire.

Jason: Thank you so much for your kindness. I'm sure this will feel great!

Jason is obviously relieved to finally be sitting down with the weight off his feet.

Manu Iti: Once again, thank you for accepting my invitation Jason. Where would you like to start our conversation regarding relationships and how they are built...

I smile and take a sip of my brew...

Manu Iti kindly starts off our conversation. I return his smile.

Jason: Thank you for inviting me, Manu Iti. You have a wonderful place here. Very cozy looking. I guess the first task that comes to my mind is defining what a relationship is, unless you see a better place to start us off on.

Jason tells me he thinks we are best to define what a relationship is. A good a place as any to start, I suppose...

Manu Iti: Yes - I would suppose that relationship is simply something which recognizes 'other' - in the same way we greeted one another and in an overall way...

I gesture around me

Manu Iti:...how each hologram universe is related to the 'other' and from there how this fundamental reality of relationship can be built upon in a mutually successful manner...

I then pause ...I am content with my definition...I lift my brows while tilting my head back slightly, to indicate to my guest that he now has the floor.
I then light my pipe, awaiting his reply...
