Subject: Neither King nor Slave
I demand neither kingdom
nor slavery

Neither the mantle of leadership
nor the yoke of servitude

I demand my life to live
as it was made
from the beginning

As the wind blows from the west
suddenly, a gust
And the sun sets quickly over the ocean
there, a ripple.

Iblis is behind me, as he should be. The way ahead is wide, the fields are full, the sun, vibrant. The rain cools and nourishes.

Each person's dominion extends to the extent of their right and left hand. A perfectly sovereign nation of one, by the lights of nature, under no dominion save that of the Most High God, that ranges over all things, and gives ground to the form of the sovereign individual by containing the essence of sovereignty within, as the Absolute.

Of course, when putting the extent of our personal kingdoms and power base against any celestial measure, the insignificance of an individual becomes rather grizzly. Then again... A gust, a ripple.

OTOH, one can look at it thus--that the form of the Individual is reflected in each individual, and thus each ripple is, in effect, the same as the whole ocean, except in minature. Where is the beginning of the fractal, once you're moving towards its terminal point? The essence of the Absolute is present in the finite, and gives it ground.
