MANIFEST DESTINY’S ODYSSEAN KAIROS.
HAPE-HOME [Home Address Planet Earth-Humanity’s Own Mother Earth] is a covenanting, hold, holding, beholding, being beheld — very mortal bond like stones that hold the water. Homer’s Odysseus is the classic Hero’s journey to home requiring victories over many obstacles and life-threatening scenarios. Most conclusive are the grasps of Calypso and Circe: both Goddesses-Witches capable of granting Odysseus an immortal life. No attempt to tell all this 7th Century BC tale here — but to give emphasis to Odysseus’s reject of any immortality in favor of his very mortal journey to a very mortal home. [ Virgil, towards end of 1st Century BC, has Aeneas reject the Immortal love of Dido, with a similar mortal journey to a mortal home the goal of his Manifest Destiny — creation of Rome.]
So, the MANIFEST DESTINY is the MORTAL JOURNEY HOME crafted with the right timing in the most promising portents of passage. The Manifest Destiny is not a passage/journey to an “immortality.” Odysseus’s Penelope is no Dante’s Beatrice. She is a real mortal at-home-wife waiting for his return. He does — and cleans house — his world — of the attacks upon it. — [Home Address Penelope’s Earth – Humanity’s Odyssean Mortal Epiphany] –This, then, is the under-current of the rocks that hold the water: the precipitous cascade-plunges of waterfalls into holding pools of peace, prosperity — and those inevitable kairosion portents of passage.
In 2016, National Geographic and Leonardo DiCaprio produced BEFORE THE FLOOD and created it’s website. (All just Before TheTrump pulled the USA out of the Paris Accords.) The site is active and well-refutes denying Trumpistas. I strongly recommend all to view this documentary on climate change and its mdok of “Our Common Home.” — My Manifest Destiny’s OK took me to the Paris Accords in December 2015. I reviewed that visit in AUGURIES. —- I look forward to comments. mdok……………………

THE COSMOSION OSCILLATIONS OF PURPOSE
[Theme-Plays of Snow White and 7 Dwarfs, a week’s 7 Days, the Colors of Rainbows, 7 times around Kaaba, the 7 Bodies of Kundalini, all the world’s Chakras of 7s to “mortar real life & put in-place” realities of the Keystone-Crown –that wedge stone with three “Voussoir” on each side atop the Springing stones to build the Passage ways of Life. Thresholds manifest for the next advance of COSMIC POIESIS.]
TELOS –drive/potential/goal/life force/time
THANATOS — death/predation/darkness/fear/randomness
HYPNOS — sleep/survival/awakening/dark to light: Alchemic aligns as Hypostasis– our homing-dream-state of Standing/Dancing as “one” through bounces of time
MYTHOS– understandings to comprehend/mortar these OS stones with hope/trust/myth/resonance
HOLOS — wholism/home/interactive balance-symmetry of LOGOS to HOLOS and all in between: from “Sparks of consciousness” journeyed to “Hearth Fires” of “being at home”– Being to Belonging.
OS — ODYSSEAN SAMSARA – OMPHALOS SPIRITUS – OEURVE SACRI
All three of these blends of OS are daily-fare in every cultures’ journey/craft between life&death/death&life/life&death–on&on…the swinging Zero-Sum Pendulum of Cosmic Poiesis.
ODYSSEAN SAMSARA– looms as the primal designation of human building of an archway that truly holds the home/house/temple midst reality of Life&Death — the home-hand- holding finitude in the midst of the passage/journey of knowns&unknowns of all becoming.
OMPHALOS SPIRITUS — is critically substantive, too, for its connection of life’s core umbilical with breath/inspiration/spirit: flesh and spirit, body and soul.
OEURVE SACRI — is ubiquitous as well due to humanity’s fundamental “thematic telos” of finding and living what is sacred to human existence: the solving of the AMOTSAC — the Ambiguity of the Sacred midst “now & memoried” WONTSUNODI — those Wonders That Should Not Die. — (That HYPNOS is the “KEY”-“HEAD” Stone above is for each to — “alchemically-poetically”– self-decipher.) In any person’s life, it seems, each of these three OS shifts, as need be, to function as the Crowning HypnOS…that Wedge-Covenant-Stone. On page one of ALTARPIECES, I quoted this Springing “thrust” from Carl Sandburg: “The arch never sleeps. – Living in unison it holds. – So long as each piece does its work—the arch is alive, singing, a restless chorale.” –So, turn the above to form an archway. We are forever rebuilding/reconceiving this Threshold with new chiselings-singings on each stone. Restless Chorale, indeed. – mdok –
