- Ancient Parable
A person went with his canoe to the market, and bought 1) a fox, 2) a goat, and 3) some cabbage. On the way home he realized that he must cross a river, and could only carry one item in the boat at a time. No, this could not be 3 simple trips. He had to solve how to take items and leave very efficiently because:
The fox left alone with the goat would eat the goat - they can't be left anywhere together. The goat and the cabbage can't be left together or the goat will eat the cabbage.
How did he get everything across? In how many trips? What did he take each time?

All 3 of these aspects should be carefully nurtured and understood as much as possible at all times.
Expanded awareness of all three of these centers makes for an actualized true "I."
- Theoretical Extrapolation of The Above
It is an interesting note that the only way to solve the above riddle is in a sense a:
Taking the emotions back to innocence.
The mind and body issues are logical enough to solve, but the emotions take "an extra trip across" to keep them fresh and vibrantly alive, while keeping mind and body firmly strong. Here's to your evolutionary awakening of how to keep your 3 selves healthily intact, just as the 3 items are efficiently carried across - and no 1/2 foxes or goats to have to eat quickly! he he..
