When it was full, they pulled it ashore, sat down, and put the good fish into containers and threw the bad away. It will be this way at the end of the age.

Note 8

Under the Pomegranate tree, on the hill, faced South across the field, over the grass; Origami sat by Thomas, he gazed aloof at the sky, "many clouds today. What do you make of them?"

Origami's little almond-shaped eyes; lifted towards the heavens. Thomas seemingly contemplated adrift directing Origami's attention lower to the field below the sky by saying, "Shabbat."

        Origami's eyes glazed then refocused attention by Thomas and he replied, "what does Shabbat mean?"

Thomas smiled, "do you like stories of new beginnings, Origami?"
He the blossomed cheeked child responded, "yes."

Then Thomas asked, "how am I to catch the big fish?"
Origami looked towards the field innocently, "Thomas, are you going to throw me into the sea?"

Thomas, "No."

        Origami, "that is what I do."

Thomas, "some do that, or expect others to function this way, at or in various conditions. They have nothing to do, those cannot be neglected, as if and/or so imperative, but they seldom ask, 'why it does not work for me?' That is and in all idleness to whatever extent. Is that what you really want, Origami? Am I your adviser or counselor? Origami, listen to the onomatopoeia at Thoth."

Thomas, "it should work for you, Origami. How else was it supposed to bring up the big fish?"

        Origami paused, but before he said anything else,

Thomas continued, "subordinate clause. We must first understand the World in which the fish lived. The sea represented the agitated state. The stated hearsay was your lure the big fish story. It was the lure meant to catch you, Origami. I submerged it in the deep be conscious of what needed to surface from the desire to followup. What needed emerge from the agitated state?"

Thomas paused, then continued for Origami, "the wicked man casts it upon other men to snare them by the net; the net represented deceit to surround the fish by lies. We do not need nets lures snares or traps. It in our hands draws the seekers rather than drag them out kicking and screaming. What to believe? Others doubt them, Origami. By faith they are challenged because the wicked works. The people of the Lord are destroyed for THEIR lack of knowledge!

        "Are you angered at me Thomas," Origami paused.

"From whom and where do you go? Those of us rightly say the little fish was needed. The tongue can be used to bless or curse. The baskets were raised the people of the Lord shared and desired after His beloved. Love Origami, the Blue Whales and the pod of Orcas those of us emerged to play. Those of us love the songs but they alone sung not the songs of praise; therefore, out of the blue chew em out the tongues."

        "What about us?" inquired Origami.

Thomas smiled, "some fish have wings now cease from asking childish questions."

Thomas ceased from saying, 'some people only care about the field and not the Lord's people. The people of the Lord desire not the World they desired the Lord. Catch and released into the void.'

Thomas rested Origami rested. The clouds above moved on over the field into the distance.
