My Broken Pieces A few weeks back, a longtime friend asked if I would meet her for lunch to discuss a new job offer. We sat in the restaurant for forty-five minutes discussing her new job opportunity when her face grew solemn. She sighed, staring down into her plate. I asked, “is everything all right,” knowing she did not ask me to meet to discuss a job offer. She said, “everything is fine, but I cannot get your story or quote about the broken pieces out of my mind.” She took a deep breath raised her head and, in half whisper, said, “it really described the broken pieces in my marriage? I answered, “when promises, borders and commitment are broken, and especially betrayal, the relationship may be repaired but never return to what it once was or could have been.” Before she left, she thanked me for giving her a copy. I refer to the story, as “The Broken Vase.” The Broken Vase Love and marriage are often broken by betrayal, lies and unkept promises. Betrayal is the ultimate form of deceit and deception. It reminded me of something I wrote many years ago about a vase that was knocked off the shelf and broken into many pieces. For a moment you’re not sure what to do but then you decide to try and repair it. Imagine trying to pick up the pieces of your life, left behind in the wake of betrayal. You must be methodical and cautious because your path is covered with egg shells. You realize it may not be the same as it once was, but would vase be good enough to keep. After all, you’ve had it for thirty years. When you believe all the pieces have been collected and placed on the table, you do one last search for the smallest pieces you may have missed. You find two small pieces, place them on the table and stare down at the broken pieces of something you cherished and was beautiful. Something so precious you often proudly displayed it to friends Over a period of three weeks, you managed to glue the vase back together. You slowly turn it around on the table and realize it is an archaic reproduction of its original form. There are holes in it created by pieces you did not find and never will. Like the pieces missing from your relationship. Held together by history and commitment but still broken. And severely damaged. The vase will never hold flowers again because it cannot hold water. And like your relationship, it has become fragile as you watch a piece fall off the vase when you lifted off the table. And when you think about the broken pieces collected from your relationship, you know that will also never be the same. As you held up the beautiful vase to show people it’s beauty, that now is simply a collection of glued pieces that resembles your relationship. You can no longer showcase your marriage. Only because of its history you place the vase back on the self, but it seems out of place and detracts from the ambience around it. After a few weeks you take the vase to your home office and place it on a shelf. A few weeks later, you sadly change the location to the closet. And like your relationship it has been moved to a different place. A dark place. When people say to you, you and your wife seem to get along very well. You think about showing them the vase. All that remains of the relationship is held together by glue. After several years you are still seeking out the missing pieces from your heart knowing deep inside you will never find. There’s only one way to get them back and that is to leave. But leaving will also mean breaking more pieces. Those are your two choices. If you leave, you will get back some of the pieces you lost but you would lose others by virtue of leaving.

1. The world is a library in which only the conscious becomes wiser. 2. The world of people You are in the amusement park, gloomy clown fantasy, circus themes everywhere, you feel the grin of awareness forever smiling in the soul. On you is a clown makeup of hypocrisy and a flower of laughter on your clown jacket, it sprinkles with juice and gives insight. You have in your hands a card on one part, that is, the bright side of your personality, on it another person who is a joker is mirrored. You get up from the attraction chair and get into the baby car with a motor. You see a chain carousel of disunity, a horse carousel a symbol of pride, and the fakirs show a fire show, expressing their fiery opinion. You go to the children's playroom everywhere egoists go, play an American game in which many people hold their hands for days on what they want to get. In another room of the disco foam party of life-size puppets who do not want to be themselves, eerie soap bubbles in the form of clown smiles burst with the roar of a terrible clown laugh of awareness. A ghost train travels everywhere for children who will never grow up inside, gaining adults who do not feel reality, who travel on an endless journey of infantility. History, fashion and philosophy have turned reality into a paradoxical anachronism, and morality has fallen into suspended animation here expecting better times. 3. Understanding, accepting alien worlds, your world will expand to an alternative universe. 4. The human world is a fun party in a madhouse, open your eyes - this is a fun evening party in hell. 5. Self-knowledge is a whole archeology. You can find in yourself a whole, lost civilization from a past life. This is not a known inner world that is forgotten due to problems with the outside world. 6. Reality has very gloomy humor, painted with neon luminescent paint of irony and sarcasm hints and clues lurk in them. Does he seem cruel to you? You have no sense of humor. 7. Only death can write you out of this psychiatric hospital. 8. The end of the world is the logical conclusion of human madness. 9. The world is a fun amusement park, gloomy fun reigns here, funny, black melancholy is felt in the air, laughter of madness is heard everywhere. To ride this or that attraction, your understanding and awareness should be of such growth. 10. You feel the mortal humor of reality, its lethal tin. If you cannot stop laughing, then you understand her jokes. You realize that philosophy in this fun, fun, fun hell is very deep, deep, deep shit. You see how you are attached to the rails in this house of terrible, crazy fun, and from that door, which shows a cheerful skull, you will be moved at any moment, cheerful, smiling, children's train of your madness, your fate: chuh-chuh- chuh-tu-tuuu. Yes, these rails, this is a very funny deja vu of reincarnation, in which every time a completely new joke is prepared for you. And as always, your fate, your executioner.
