Yes, me friend…..me good friends
Dem set me free again,
Yes, me friend…..
We in the street again..
Bars could not hold me…..
Force could not control me now….
Through the powers of the Most High….
They had to turn me loose….

So if you a Bull-Bucka…..let me tell you this…..

I’m a duppy conqueror……Conqueror………

Yes me friends, me good friends……them set me free again…

Life and Interaction are fascinating….the Game of Life is fascinating. Counter-intuitive as all hell……an eternal game of hide-and-seek…….there you are….now where did you go?

Let’s see if I can take something “out-there” and make it simply…..”in-here”…….tangible and practical for the viewing audience……

Duppy Conqueror…….what on Earth is that?

A “duppy” is considered an evil spirit…..in the Western mind, a demon……an entity that stirs up trouble……

In the Western…externally-oriented mind…..the “out-there” mindset…..a blame-shifting, victimized-mind…….demons and demonic possession are interwoven into the fabric of the American fairy tale…….in the same fashion as our nationalistic, maritime enemies are interwoven into the American saga……after all, a story cannot be rightly told without a plot….without a good guy, a bad guy….a conquest….a saving of the girl….and a riding into the sunset……

Our shadows never leave us……they never quite go all the way……away…….our prolific doubts……..our incredible un-certainty, despite our social face of proud-certainty…..plague our every imagination and every interaction…..Most run away from the shadows….from the demons….from the duppy…….pretend they do not exist…..that the shadows are just in “my head” and not real…that somehow they can positive-self-speak their way to luxury……these dark-bizarre thoughts, these horrific disparaging thoughts……are not from me (they say)…….they are from the some-other-place…..outside of me……”yeah that’s it…..get these creatures outside of me, ikky”…….Pushed…..pretended-away…..Squeezed-crushed-tucked-away…….blinked-away……

In an egg-shell……basically……a Duppy……a Demon……is a spectra…..a voice…….an expression of sorts. Whether one considers the Duppy to be real or not-real……to be inside or outside…..to be their own mind…..or some other enterprise…..it doesn’t matter one iota…….they all render down to the same root.

A force within the human psyche that tells the man or woman they are in-sufficient……that they are not now….not then…..nor ever will be…….good enough………seen enough…….have enough…..

A force wildly promoting discord while also providing the sole opportunity for real-Accord…..otherwise man would not know what sleeping on the bed of discord ever felt like……and this we MEN must know and realize by Fire and Loss……sadly, this is the case – and no other way around it…..

Which brings me to the TANGIBLE……..to the Table of Life itself……..the doubts…..the demons…..the duppy……will always haunt a material mind…..a cause-and-effect mind…….a fairy-tale, conditioned mind…….Even when a good-mood mind has finally satisfied all the perceived troubles on his/her plate……the duppy is never satisfied, it will immediately conjure other, “left-field” troubles and concerns…..without a hint of effort…….they will spill out onto the common mental-psychic-plain like a heartbeat……or blink of an eye……whenever man finally reaches a shore of peace-of-mind…..a storm brews and gains in the West……dark-skies due North…..

And this is the TRICK of the Trickster…….and just like you….the God and Fool are one in the same…..playing the same game by the light of the same Candle……and here’s a sincere KEY….a peck of GOLD, pay close attention now……pay the toll……

First RULE – is……..the game MUST be worth the Candle.
if the game of order-versus-chance is to continue, Order must not ever win….

Second RULE – As prediction and control increase, so, in proportion, the game ceases to be worth the Candle…..We then look for a new game with an uncertain result. In other words, we have to play hide-and-seek all over again, in a new way….”plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose” – a French proverb, “the more it changes, the more it’s the same thing.”

The game MUST be worth the Candle…….

A real modern-day Game of Thrones……..the Game of Games……to know THE game is the game…..and to have fun with it all, sincerely and mindfully…….to have your cake and eat it too……..they say this cannot be done……I have to claim otherwise.
