Part 1, chapter three Coming into this world as I did, as we all do- like little God-maggots, growing in the stool and searching for our new wings that we might learn again to fly- I could never have imagined what was to happen. How could I? Who, after all, can know the unknowable? Who … Continue reading ROOTS AND WINGS: adventures of a spirit on earth, part 1, chapter 3, by Jack Haas

ROOTS AND WINGS: adventures of a spirit on earth, part 1, chapter 2, by Jack Haas

Part 1, chapter two But let me explain. Let me hopelessly explain why I cannot explain what I cannot help but try to explain.

ROOTS AND WINGS: adventures of a spirit on earth, part 1, chapter 1, by Jack Haas

Part one, chapter 1 Out in this world, in this impossible world, in this crazy, mysterious, magical world. Out into this world I came, like a wild thought fleeing its captor.

IN AND OF: memoirs of a mystic journey, part 2, chapter 14, by Jack Haas

Part 2, chapter fourteen No matter what I have written here, nor how I have explained or come to understanding, throughout it all I was nothing, and did nothing, for it was the great mystery of life, of the spirit, which did it all.
