Latent monsters, such as the snake headed monster Medusa, are there as a protector, averting the evil gaze and ideas of men, turning onlookers to stone. Beheaded by Perseus, Pegasus was born, flying from Medusa's body to Heaven. Medusa, once a beautiful mortal, was turned snakey monster and a mirrored reflection killed her. Anubis, on the other hand, was the father of the snake goddess, Kebechet, her cooling water was to purify the spirits of the dead as a protection of the body before mummification. An afterlife takes you to the life of the Spirit, weighing heavily on the crossing to the underworld. Chthonic monsters take us to the depths of the sea while gods traverse the entrance of another domain and we fly with Pegasus up the mountain, up to Heaven. Thunder and lightening greet us up there, on top of the mountain and we feel blessed by Zeus, as souls take the pathways of rivers to find infinity. Monsters and creatures from the abyss take us on another pathway to Hell. We greet ourselves there, in a half denial of the self, the unconscious, where latent monsters should be left alone to dwell to protect our inner self and take the last boat ride to infinity. Part god, monster and primal inner self, we are made aware of death, so, we can find Heaven. Let monsters live in the deep.

Passages to the underworld are a common theme with Ancient Greek gods and some have stemmed from earlier times of history, they started with Ancient Egyptian mythology. A god such as Anubis was thought of as being a god of the dead, for he participated in sacred ceremonies of mummification. The pathway of the souls through the underworld was also the responsibility of the god, Hermes, for the Ancient Greeks and later a cult was formed of a god combining both duties, this god was named "Hermanubis". A gateway to the souls needed attendants and for the Ancient Egyptians, the afterlife was your sacred home and a Heaven for a weighted heart. Another duty of the god Anubis was to weigh the hearts of the dead, to see who was suitable for the afterlife. A big heart is weighted.

We follow the tree of love up to where the birds reside, in the treetops. God then takes us up to the cliff tops where the hawks nest to visit the Greek goddess of Night, Hypnos. In Ancient Greek mythology, the goddess of sleep had two hawk wings on either side of her head, to swoop down to those endowed with night, to gently brush a human being with sleep via the tip of the wing and the goddess of the Night, Morpheus, the goddess of dream was to follow. Dreams are the sleep of reason. Gods, also, had the capacity to transpire nightmares. Night is the night of reason. The goddess of sleep, Hypnos, is the goddess of darkness and related to the Night. We breathe. The unconscious is the reflection of the self and why we sleep. We sleep for reason or a conscious rationality. Hypnos is often equated with the wrong side of darkness by people who take the goddess to Hell and leave her there as the powerful goddess is related to death, our final resting place and Night, so, place your night in sleep, an unconscious infinity of reason. God bless sleep.

When we think about the red blood of fate we become tree. Daphne is the tree of our blood for we are the roots of God and he is our tree in Heaven. We are left facing the tree of fate. With our face, facing our limbs and branches, our feet stand on the Earth. We are Earth for we are the Earth of God. Daphne is our flowering tree for we are the vessel of life. Our blood is our tree for we are love in the face of Creation. Flowers take us to a deeper understanding of ourselves, they flower and we love. Tree flowers take you to an understanding of Daphne, a complex position of the self as tree in the garden of love. Trees loved Daphne and when we flower, the gods protect us. Blood in the creation of the self is a tree in love with God, we draw our blood as the stems and branches draw nourishment through the trunk. Sunlight to starlight and both nourish the leaves. We are Earth for we are love. Daphne is the tree of love.

We grow like the wind and that is our destiny. Fate is for the gods to decide. We measure the length for this is our destiny. The gods make the cut. Gods cut the threads of fate. Our fate is so immersed in our life that the tree roots become entangled. Fate goes hand in hand with God as leaves face the sky with leaves and deciduous trees glisten in the sunlight. Our branches are our stems for we are roots of the earth. Love transpires like sap after fallen branches. Flowering trees blossom in the Spring. Our trees are our love for we are God. When God is our tree of fate, we are the limbs for the fates are the tree and our foundation is the roots. The three fates use their measuring stick for love is fate. We spin our fate as the tree grows its leaves and branches are akin to this, for we are love in the limbs. Our limb is our tree of fate.

When you view the horizon line between the open sea and the sky, your mind is taken to the line between a consciousness of where we go at death and an unconsciousness of Heaven. Sleep and death is the watery domain. God is in Heaven in the infinite awareness of the self, for we contemplate our death this way. The vista is a view of where God needs to take you to love. The unconsciousness of the sea and infinity of the self is where you would find God, the self, love, death and the angels of the sea. Our Spirit follows the water and our soul plunges the depths of the ocean to find solace. The line of the horizon journeys forth like a fate line where life and death are immersed in the sea. The infinite takes us to the unconscious and we trespass our destiny. We are destined for love.

Other marine mammals are not always kindly thought about but have a majestic purpose for God. For example, sharks are quite commonly seen in shallow waters, near where the surf breaks upon the shore and this is a good feeding ground, and protective place for female sharks rearing their young. Sharks are built with a protective mechanism of several layers of teeth in really powerful jaws for eating a bigger kind of deep-sea fish. Unfortunately, human beings often do not respect the shark's breeding grounds and are savagely attacked. These beautiful Divine creatures of the deep are mammals for God's Divine purpose and should be left alone as a gracing of the sea. Sharks take you to the infinite with the length of their tails. Several species of shark are noted in the wild and are decorated accordingly by God's Divine landscape, for protection. One almost feels, the light coloured spots, certain varieties acquire, are as an indication of the light of God at sea. The protective brushstrokes of God's Divine hand are so the sharks are invisible and look like dappled sunlight on the sea. There, in the sea, the infinite takes you to God. The sea.
