Hi dear reader,
Mothers love is chartered for a paint job. In my hand I hold the front door key of the new house. The house stares at me: a room full of possibilities, a mountain of work.
The house: a magical place, connected with beautiful stories, a metaphor for a lot of stupidity and wisdom. The house is the dwelling place for the soul, the Light, the essence of things.
While I drag pots of paint into the house, I realize that the economic crisis began on the housing market. I associate it with the Egyptian tale of the sorcerer's apprentice, which teaches how uncontrolled use of magical powers can cause a real disaster in your house. The ancient story is still current! Walt Disney used this very story for his character movie 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice'.
While I am painting I see in my imagination how Mickey Mouse draws buckets of water from a well as sorcerer's apprentice. Just like painting, drawing water is a heavy job. Mickey thinks that using magic will make his work more easy. Mickey puts on the magical hat of his teacher when he is away for a minute …
In my mind I see the financial world, with an anticipating imagination responding to the craving of people, who want to have everything effortlessly and instantly. While I paint the walls, three realities melt together three realities: the house, the fairy tale and the world.
The white wall I paint becomes the film canvas of my imagination. I see tailored suits with pointed hats and mice ears: the big financial boys in the lead role of Mickey Mouse. They conjure up the stars of heaven and use craving as fuel to create financial magical brooms, to draw virtual money from the well. I see how they have launched a sorcery they are unable to stop, and the world around us is about to drown in economic 'Astral waters ' …
Following that fairy tale, the time has now come to conjure up that great magician, who will help us to separate the waters again: to get the economical environment dry and clean, and to re-connect us with the ' Essence of Things '. The big question is: who knows that spell?
