His Divine Munificence, The Yeged-Godi — Spiritual Adviser To The Starless 5
















Float
like a horse
in a meadow.

Rise
like a chimp
in a stream.

Bask
like a hornet
on a sunset.

Thrust
like a pelican
on a table.

Grow
like a fish
in a balloon.

Shine
like a stone
in a haystack.

That is SO much nicer than hiding one's light under a bushel! And the graphic artist who produced the illustration deserves a medal. :)

Nice to see you stopping by, El Jinko.

And thanks for the medal. One of my better illustrations, this.

Not clear if the disembodied eye is the Yeged-Godi and the human-looking character is the Starless, or if the whole drawing is the YG, who has one eye not on his head.

Also, why are there wavy "stink lines" above him/them, the kind you would draw above a pile of steaming turds?

For eons, the Yeged-Godi has inspired a curious combination of awe, wonder and ridicule, regularly finding himself at the epicentre of life's most enigmatic undercurrents. If he weirds you out, it's no surprise.

As for the 'stink lines', what you see there are psychic emanations of his emanating psyche.

Such inspiration. Today I shall rise like a chimp in a stream!

Sheer wonderment.

What's great is that the wonderment is practical as well as sheer. Like you, I'm indebted to gurus like the Y-G.
