Alice in Hennyland
The tale of Alice in Wonderland inspired this collection. Alice in Wonderland is really about a young woman’s journey into consciousness. It is about following the path to enlightenment. Like Alice, some of us are called to take this journey. And also like Alice, in a world of Wonderland or Hennyland, danger and confusion can arise. However, there are opportunities for growth and expansion along the journey of consciousness. In today’s modern western society, many times we use partying, drinking and in this case, Hennessy, to ease the discomfort of the journey of spiritual growth.
The tale of Alice begins when she falls into a rabbit-hole and is trapped in time and space, which is symbolic of how we are all in search of the path of truth. Many of us are trapped by the delusion of "self": the misbelief that there is, at the core of our being, a separate, independent, unchanging "self" or personality. In truth, we are all connected. Everything is energy. Alice's quest is also ours - 'Who in the world am I? Ah! That's the great puzzle! Who am I?' she asks.
Alice begins her journey as her egoic self – which blurs the truth - and she has to learn many lessons in Hennyland. The journey of Alice is really one we all go through – the journey of eliminating the egoic self and the egoic mind in order to better know ourselves. Alice makes it clear that we need to see things in a different way, or at least see things as they really are...in order to find ourselves. The truth is a pathless land.
