“The positive purpose of the universe is with us. Time (card 14) ever tries to weave us into a state of perfection, but as we see, the devil (card 15) stands there in her way influencing us always to deny our greater possibilities. He does this by playing upon our fears and doubts. Little wonder that Jesus tells us we must go without fear. Denial is the great power of the evil. Gurdjieff observed that the denying force was humanity’s strongest. This is to be seen at so many levels of our behaviour, starting at the simplest of invariably denying unfamiliar concepts the first time we hear them.
There also many legends of a white healer and ‘prophet’ who taught throughout the continents of North and South America whom some say could have been Jesus:
Coordinator: Good. Out of the door, line on the left, one cross each. [Next prisoner] Crucifixion?
Mr. Cheeky (Eric Idle): Er, no, freedom actually.
Mr. Cheeky: Yeah, they said I hadn't done anything and I could go and live on an island somewhere.
Coordinator: Oh I say, that's very nice. Well, off you go then.
Mr. Cheeky: No, I'm just pulling your leg, it's crucifixion really.
