The very thought of a vulture picking clean the bones of any man is enough to cause any normal person to shiver- let alone think long enough to ponder the event itself. The vulture was prized in Egyptian culture, and Greeks give us katharsis [release in drama attributed to Aristotle’s Poetics, change]… where as the dichotomy of life from death has been around and tried to be controlled since man could plot things as he does. Where will the heights of power lead to humane concerns… if not for the assumed control of it?
Some of our own people have acted like vultures, one to the other, but you might think vultures are out for themselves. As with heights and availability… I’m going to offer you a scene [or series of pictures] to be understood for the visual lesson(s) and the lesson of power. It can be found if[as one looks long enough and hard enough] our eyes should be opened to see something you have not contemplated before. I will also ask you how many vultures do you see in any given picture?
How many vultures do you see?
How about now?
Try looking harder…
and you might see how many are actually there.
Maybe the change to see, the one that happens to be the most important change in your life, is to see the truth be told… and coming from yourself. That would be a change… to know the cause for the difference came from your belief, and your belief was in ‘the living God.’
If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
They change the night into day: the light is short because of darkness.
For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
