One of the more interesting interpretations of the crucifixion allegory is that which identifies Jesus with the personal consciousness of the individual. It is this personal consciousness that conceives of and dwells in the sense of separateness, and before the aspiring soul can be reunited with the ever-present and all-pervading Father this personality must be sacrificed that the Universal Consciousness may be liberated.

For us, this is an allegory to life's challenges and difficulties...sometimes we are the bullfighters...sometimes we become the bull...

Quote Examples using Allegory
Says, I have spent most of today arguing with another gentleman about the issue of gun legislation in America. Those who know me well, know how I feel about guns in general, and this post is not squarely in favor or in opposition to increased firearm restriction. I would simply like to say, that as we progress in our collective debate about this issue as a nation, please keep yourself open to every aspect of the conversation. Both sides have their fanatics and their merits, so there is nothing to be lost on hearing each other out. Progress is not made on the fringes, but in the center.Anonymous
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it. Were you listening to me, Neo, or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?Anonymous
Great, dreary Coldplay Friday. Perfect weather for the music. It think this songs fits the mood of the weather. An allegory perhaps that help is round the corner in the form of sunshine. Maybe? haha. Enjoy.Anonymous
Memory I am blessed to record existence no season can steal away. I have inspiration— the days and nights blend in white-hot pleasure. Heat and flesh with sweat and salt water on sun warm skin. The hour burning brightly, flame of consummation, round and luscious. A kiss transcends reason, the ocean swallowing every sin.Anonymous
I've been seeing some of you gun people post things about guns, your rights, taking away your guns and bashing the government. I just want to ask you some questions. 1. Why are you against 100% background check to purchase a gun? Are you okay with anyone being able to purchase a gun unquestioned? If this takes affect, how does this affect you in a negative manner? 2. Why are you against a ban on assault weapons? Do you own one? Do you believe there should be no bans on any type of weapon meaning anyone should able to purchase and carry around any weapon like a rocket launcher? 3. How many high capacity clips do you own? Do you use them as they were intended to unload a massive amount of ammunition in a short period of time? 4. How does any of the above infringe on your 2nd amendment? If you feel that strongly about what is going on in the gun world, which I believe you do or else you wouldn't be posting so much about it, please answer my questions. I would really like to hear your side.Anonymous
Ena and I were talking shop about politics. She’s pretty smart. I get by. NPR had announced that President Obama was going to totally vacate Afghanistan in 2014. No boots nor Crocs on the ground. From what I’ve heard of our president “post getting the nod to serve again”, he’s been more stalwart in his affirmations. No more troops/guns=bad. I struck a pose and asked the question of changing the term cycle from four years with the option of running again to one term of six years. With this system, you get the best the official has too give, because there is no other chance to do it again. No more of that 2 years of running the country and 2 years of running your campaign #!$%. Give me a solid 6. Do what you can and move the #!$% on. I’m sure this theory is littered with holes, but if we’re going to elect a guy/gal to do a job, why have them sandbag the first term, then attempt to really institute change when they have nothing to lose? Dennis, Sparx, Rob, Mathias, Sarah, Maisha, Verna, Alejandra, Zhenya, Gary. Your opinions may have no value in the real world, but are always welcomed in mine.Anonymous
Did anyone else read/see Matt Cleek's statements about why wine shoudn't be sold in grocery stores? Ridiculous! Since when is wine "high alcohol content" or "high proof"? Seriously though... Nyquil has more than some wine, and it's not like it's everclear. So long as someone, somewhere, has the knowledge and means to produce it, someone who wants it will find a way to get it. Be it stealing it from parents liquor cabinets, fake id, or having a friend's older sibling buy it for them, you can only make it difficult. You can't stop it.Anonymous
I remember the good old days when you could troll people easily and get away with it easily. Those were the days when Facebook had a more lenient Community Guideline and Terms of Usage, so as to speak. Also, more importantly people used to give less of a damn on who says what in virtual online communities. Sure sure, there are other ways to bring water under the bridge through veiled allegory and symbolism so as to speak. But I find lesser people with the emotional and intellectual capacity to comprehend. Or perhaps I'm wrong. Maybe irony and humor is getting cheaper... Who cares. I'm off to the gym... Take care guys.Anonymous
A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes a subject by asserting that it is, on some point of comparison, the same as another otherwise unrelated object. Metaphor is a type of analogy and is closely related to other rhetorical figures of speech that achieve their effects via association, comparison or resemblance including allegory, hyperbole, and simile. Source :Wikipedia This means that a message with a strong image can convey another message with a deep meaning as in the photo that we have just presented. Burning money it's a metaphor ,it doen't mean you have to burn money,it means ,according to the author ,that we can live without it. I hope now all is clear.Anonymous
Plato's allegory of the cave must be read as a polemic against Aristotle. For Aristotle what is good is to allow the other to fulfill their essence: to allow those held in darkness with the capacity to see, to see; and so on. What, then, is miraculous about the cave is not the good of the one who frees the first prisoner. Rather it is the freedom of the prisoner to return, and then the freedom the prisoner extends to his fellow captives, that they might stay in the dark as a community bound together. This is Love.Anonymous
So new evidence provides that we have sunken city's all over the globe and 50k years ago the citys would be on land due to the ice age. This predates the neathathal which was 40k years ago so therefore humans did not come from that race. When the ice began to melt it started with major climate change and flooded the land covering all city's under the ocean. The reason why civilization began by shore is because that the ocean provided warm water from the sun which can heat the land. So therefor a flood ended civilization so now history and science proven gods word.Anonymous
“A novel is not an allegory.... It is the sensual experience of another world. If you don't enter that world, hold your breath with the characters and become involved in their destiny, you won't be able to empathize, and empathy is at the heart of the novel. This is how you read a novel: you inhale the experience. So start breathing.” ~Azar NafisiAnonymous
The back porch is covered in a layer of mud that needed to be cleaned off. I tried spraying it off with the garden hose, but the mud was caked on. I had to ask myself: “How badly do I want it clean?” I have a tooth brush and I could spend a few days on my hands and knees scrubbing the mud off the concrete like in Forrest Gump. That would be time consuming and laborious. I could spend a few bucks on a bigger brush, but it would still require hard scrubbing while down on my hands and knees. If I owned a gasoline engine powered pressure washer, I could quickly and easily clean it. And frankly, those are kind of fun to play with. So I shopped around for a pressure washer. The electric ones were about $150 and the gas powered over $300. That’s a lot of money just to clean the back porch. I didn’t want to clean it bad enough to get on my hands and knees nor pay that much money for a spray gun. So I looked into renting a pressure washer and found a good deal for a day. I was able to wash off the mud with the pull of a trigger. And yeah, it was fun to play with. So I sprayed dirt off the siding too. The gas tank held over two gallons so I could clean for hours without refueling. Without such an effective, accessible and affordable tool, I would have just left the mud alone.Anonymous
The five colors blind the eye. The five tones deafen the ear. The five flavors dull the taste. Racing and hunting madden the mind, Previous things lead us astray. Therefore the wise are guided by what they feel and not by what they see, Letting go of that and choosing this. -Lao TsuAnonymous
Science dissonance. What's your solution? Most scientists are in their field because they are seeking truth for themselves and for humankind. Particularly in academia, they dedicate their lives to long periods of tediousness, punctuated by occasional realizations that, if lucky, fill in one tiny piece of the puzzle. A scientist cannot be an advocate because, well, it's not scientific. How then is the truth communicated to the public? Advocacy groups- which are often demonized. The media- which often provides dramatized, divisive, misinterpreted information What else? How do you educate and inform yourself so that you too can peer into truth?Anonymous
Gen 9. More curious stuff about Noah that didn't make the children's books. After God makes the covenant and gives the okay for man to eat meat, Noah becomes a winemaker. One night, Noah's son Ham sees his father naked and passed out drunk. He tells his brothers, Shem and Japheth, who cover their father. Noah, outraged, curses not Ham, but Ham's son Canaan to be subject to Shem and Japheth.Anonymous
What is needed to bridge science and theology? What is the faithful answer to Hawking's statement, "God is not necessary to explain the physical universe?" Hawking is correct in terms of contemporary scientific narratives of origins beginning with the Big Bang. But for believers, God the Creator is always necessary in order to understand the universe's origins. The difference is that theologians must acknowledge and incorporate scientific knowledge. The scientific narrative can extinguish much of traditional theology as being irrelevant, but the theological narratives for today cannot extinguish biology and physics as being irrelevant. Theology that denies science is, indeed, not necessary. The way to build a bridge between science and theology is for theology to evolve, for as Darwin taught us, it is not the most powerful or the most intelligent that survive, but those who adapt.Anonymous
Ugh.... Trying to crunch potential business revenue numbers versus an assumed low-ball median is infuriating. Maybe the math is just an allegory to life in the essence that its futile to attempt to try to base a formula on the unknown. Damnit, I know what will work and play out NOW, but what do I do when I reach that point where I'm so set in my ways that I cant adapt? The stupid part of this thought process is that I'm really NOT that old or out of touch; I'm actually right on the pulse of manipulating social trends, yet I acknowledge the fact that my edge could miraculously dissipate at any moment. Is it possible for someone to retain the idea of cultural norm, while retaining a "by the numbers" traditional mentality?Anonymous
I see Black People on Facebook giving praise to this image below SMH. Question. How can you worship a savoir that look like the very people who oppressed you? You are still in slavery but of a different kind. Mental slavery is the worst form. This what happens when a people get robbed of a knowledge of self. They began to take on the mindset of their oppressor. If we continue to hold on to things that's not of us, we as a people are lost.Anonymous
Official history has been changed to hide the fact that the world has been controlled by the same interbreeding tribe for thousands of years. This is never more so than with the major religions. They all have inner and outer levels of knowledge. The inner level carries the secrets going back to the ancient Mystery schools of places like Sumer, Babylon and Egypt. These include the secrets of the bloodline and only the chosen few are initiated into this awareness. The outer level is where the secrets are hidden in code and allegory and sold, with a deity, to the masses as the 'truth'.Anonymous
The seamless robe of righteousness – Part 2 As I think on this, there is more, and the picture grows. At the cross, we see the soldiers casting lots for this garment, unwilling to tear it in order to share it out. I am not one for fanciful allegory, but something is made of this very specific fact in the relating of the incidents surrounding the crucifixion. The truths are there even if my picturing of them is off. Above the heads of these hardened sinners, the Lord of glory hangs in shame, stripped naked and exposed for the world to see and ridicule. He is made sin, who knew no sin, and on Him is heaped, not only the full scorn of men, but the curse of God. His robe, His seamless robe, is taken. He is robbed of its protection, its warmth, its comfort. But, just as at the supper, in reality, He has laid it aside. Think of it. Righteousness is what He has been, an extension of His very existence. Coming from a heart which only loves to do the will of God, and a life which expresses at every point obedience flowing from love, this essential and deeply integrated characteristic of His nature is wrenched from Him., and He is treated as if He were not only a sinner, but sin itself. All of the white hot indignation that holiness must have against wrong and wickedness is poured, undiluted, upon His head in nine hours of agony. And this sinless soul – the spotless, unblemished Lamb of God – is subjected to the raw fury that God must have in response to us, the wreckers of His world and of our own hearts. Is it any wonder that nature hangs its head in shame – the skies go dark, the earth shakes? And the Righteous One bears my sin so that I may go free. “See – from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down. Did e’er such love and sorrow meet? Or thorns compose so rich a crown?”Anonymous

Another of my short stories is out today! Check out Found in the Winter edition of Allegory.
"These then are the Nine Doctrines, known amongst the practitioners of the Orders of the Quest for centuries. For the servants of Athena, these are the very factors depicted in Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. Odysseus long ago capitalized upon this wisdom to survive great trials, such that a mortal overcame the very lethal will of the Gods: Certain forces are always present, and certain responses are always wise. Consider well what you would gain and what you are willing to lose, for these are not the signposts of a path to power - They are the path itself."

Basically they'll shoot and kill anyone with a gun drawn and ask questions once everything has calmed down.

So he kept searching for this thing called light with no idea it was both abundant and present. Some days, I feel that way.
