Birds of a feather

20 August 2014, 08:32 Onyeji Dominic

Story is story, and wisdom dwells in fantasy world! Fact is mental while truth is real. That is it. It means that fact and truth are two different things under the Sun.

One may not understand the point here but let me just say that story exists in mind, and the mind is powered by dream, and the dream is very far from reality. It is more or less a journey from fantasy to reality. It has several vehicles which include writing, expression, feeling, drama, movie and what have you. The journey is done in mind and there is always a long distance to cover.

In actual fact, the story had been told by many story-tellers in so many ways. William Shakespeare was prominent among the renowned writers of great insight. He saw the two birds in fantasy, and the names he gave to both were Romeo and Juliet. That was story from his world of dream - fantasy world. The wise understood it better. They read the story and the two were taken as one in mentality. That was why they called it "Birds of a feather" a.k.a Romeo & Juliet.

The story was told long time ago. It was now a thing of the past. It is evident that we are now in new age, a dispensation of better and greater stories and dreams. It means that the birds are now "born-again". They have reincarnated in a modern story and dream; another world of imagination known to the wise as "LUCKY VOYAGE". They got baptized, and their names changed to Amagem and Tina. I saw both just like William Shakespeare did those days. The new story has been published for humanity. It is contained in my new book titled, "COLLECTION OF EPICS"
