For those who have made it this far, CONGRATULATIONS! Let's talk about it, but please be cryptic. Wouldn't want to ruin the ending for others who may be peeking in here.

This is my favorite canto and where it all comes together. The first time I read it, I was so intrigued I read it soooo fast.
Then I immediately went back and slowly reread every word, barely breathing.
It`s the most intense, soul stirring beautiful printed word I`ve ever read.
I have a burning question that I`m barely holding on too..... but I will

It`s awful hard to be cryptic where Lindas concerned

I made it Randall! The whole journey--very breath taking. Such warmth and comfort has filled my heart.

It's funny how I didn't notice straight away "Gear Doober - I love you, and love is ALL" Then I went back and read canto 21 again, because there are so many layers to get through!!- and then I noticed it-

It's hard for me to warp/wrap my mind around the mirror reflection of what is- how about you?

So many delicious layers in that Canto, SunChild. I sipped the rest of Gooberz, but I couldn't help but be a glutton with 21.

She wrote the ending hoping that it would describe the future--but not in this reality. It never happened.

I'm just gonna have to believe that in some time/place it's true... My libran heart has to believe in the happy ending - oh such joy, such true soul-love, how beautiful!
I just have to start all over again now to be able to re-experience these joyous moments - LOVE IS ALL...

I have no doubt it is true...in many parallel realities.

Page 1041

I ran quickly to the door
to tell Ruth I finally understood
what she had been trying to make me see before
that I must stop grieving
..and start believing

but when I unfastened the lock
oh ! delirious shock!

IT WAS YOU !

just standing there, with the rain in your
hair

stars falling all around you

as they did the night I found you

you whispered.."Gooober, I've come back home"

I answered..
"I know darling, I know"

the the rain magically changed to snow
and your aura began to glow and glow
..like diamonds


after awhile..

I closed the door on your astral image
for that's all it was..

all ? oh, you were still tall !
and your eyes were still ocean green..
silvery-wise

...after I closed the door
I walked slowly into the den..still alone
blew a happy kiss at the silent telephone....

knelt down near your side of the couch
then said a joyous thank-you prayer for your
return

....for whatsoever thing you desire
pray as if you had already received it
and you shall surely have it !

oh, Goob .. you must have thought I would
never learn !

in your squiggly dwarf scrawl ..

Gear Dooober .. I love you

and Love is All

THE END

WHICH IS THE BEGINNING

Start...

the next written page

backwards..
from bottom to top


and the dawn .. of understanding

to wait for morning's soft forgiveness

the night of selfish seeking
that did not die, but has survived

crowned by gentle Venus with the Victory of
Love
back into the pyramid-shaped rainbow of
tomorrow's brighter Eden
together, hand-in-hand .. full serpent circle
but now we walk in quiet peace .. with all
our scattered pieces whole

the wounds and scars of furious battle, my
Twin Self and I

and the bleakness of despair we bear ..
consumed by inconsolable sadness
before the ominous threat of Pluto's
tomb-like silence
to fall, at last, in trembling fear

stumbling at the precipice of the Moon's
enticing madness
driven by the pounding drums of Jupiter's
giant, throbbing passions
still we fought on, in unrelenting fury
striking blow for blow

as those wandering angels, stilled and
helpless deep within us, cried
scorched by the Sun's exploding bursts of
pride

crushed beneath the weight of stern,
unyielding S
Saturn who lengthened
..into millenniums of waiting
..each day into a year each year
every hour into a day

of the sudden, awful violence of Uranus
shattered by the lightning
by Vulcan's distant, raging thunder
shocked and nearly torn asunder

tortured by the clever lies of Mercury
wounded cruelly by the painful thrust of Mars
caught in Neptune's tangled web

from a misty, long forgotten OOber Galaxy of
stars
lost and lonely, fallen angels -- exiled
we've fought a long and bitter war, my Twin
Self and I

THE PLANETS
