    “What is heavy? So asketh the load-bearing spirit; then kneeleth it down like a camel, and wanteth to be well laden.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche
    This has been the second time that Camel has come to me as a sign in the last while. Camel is not a traditional animal in the knowing that I grew up with. But I know that Camel has had a special meaning in my struggle with PTSD/Abuse issues. Nietzsche referred to the Three Metamophoses of Man, that from a Camel, carrying it’s heavy load, to a Lion, battling for freedom with the great Dragon: Thou Shalt, and finally to a Child, living in Innocence and Forgetfulness. When you have suffered Abuse and/or are struggling with PTSD, you can become very good at carrying not just your own load, but the loads of others. The problem comes when you cannot put that load down, when you cannot let go of the past, of what was done to to you, and you remain forever the Camel. I have become a very good Camel. No load is too heavy for me to bear. I have also made myself into a very good Lion, doing battle with the so many Thou Shalts and the so many Thou Shalt Nots. I am nearing the end of my middle age and I am having a very hard time putting down my load, putting down the past, and I am having a hard time too with not needing to bare my teeth at the world, with leaving the battle behind me and making my way towards Innocence and Forgetfulness. As Zarathustra puts it I am still something between a fool and a corpse, I am caught between being the Camel and the Lion and have never moved fully on from either one. It is good to be able to carry the load. But at some point you just have to put it down and move on. So much easier said than done. But this is what the Camel seems to call me to do.

      Someone once said “like an heavy sack of potatos, just drop it”. I thought at the time “it’s not potatos this kind of things you can’t just drop, feelings emotions memories it’s different…” Then years passed. Last year like a click I just dropped it. And laughed. And if the load tried its way to my back where it doesn’t belongs, I drop it again. Do not be the good camel, or the good Lion, or even the Innocent child. Let yourself Discover what you really are when you drop the load. All of it. Again and again, laughing 🙂
