Well, it was quite unfortunate what had happened in those two minutes of entire, complete silence. You see, Triss II has schizophrenia, so ...there is no minute or second in time that can ever be silent for him. He held his head low, while trying to remain silent.
Triss II: Yes, I hear you. Yes, I know I am a prophet of God. Yes, this is PuppetMaster doing all this orchestration -- I hear you.
The voices told him to sit still and know that PuppetMaster was not the Master of the Universe. The voices told him to wait it out. The voices said to be friendly. The voices were his friend to guide him, and he listened quite intently. He had to sit still.
K'NE: Oh, Triss II, the two minutes are over and all I could think about the entire time was that you were listening to voices. I saw you. I saw how you listened. I saw how you leaned your head forward to listen to them.
Triss II: Well, yes, I am a prophet of God. That is why I am here. I can tell you anything you want to know. I can tell you what people dream and if it was from God or not. I can tell you who gets dreams from God or not. You have a very fine family. We love your Daddy, he is very sweet and kind, and we like this very much about him. You have a sweet family. We like your family. They are a sweet and kind family indeed.
K'NE: Triss II, is this why you are my friend?
Triss II enjoyed K'ne's attention. He liked that she said his name with so much joy.
Triss II: Well, you see, I think this is God orchestrating this all up. God is in charge. God is doing this. I think I should be praying for you secretly.
K'NE: What will you be praying?
Triss II: Just a minute, I have something to say to Miss.
Miss Polly Anna III: Oh! Don't even come close to me!, and I am so much terribly better than you, and you must keep your distance from me. Besides, you are insane. People don't listen to insane people, or...next thing you know, they will be looked at as being insane, too.
SHOOO, SHOO, GET AWAY!
You are like a fly I detest to ever be present in my presence.
Triss II: I just wanted to help you and tell you there's nothing to fear on the T.V. -- and you wonder if God talks to you through your dreams. He does, stop being frightened. You are so frightened. No, everything will be okay. No, no, you will be okay.
Triss II was agitated with Miss Polly Anna III. He talked to her as if to settle her down.
Miss Polly Anna III: Oh my god!!
Miss Polly Anna III moved the farthest away from Triss II that she could, but kept staring at him.
K'NE: Come here Triss II, she will never understand who you are. Stop talking to her, she is a waste of time, isn't she? Come on, she is too fearful. She lives in a different realm.
Wow, Triss II was so upset by what he saw inside Miss Polly Anna III. K'NE had to pull his attention away for the sake of him.
Triss II: I am not upset by this. I can explain to you why Miss Polly Anna III is acting this way, if you'd like to know. Actually it's quite natural and most people will do this. It has nothing to do with me. Would you like to know why she is acting this way?
K'NE: Actually, Triss II, I would not like to know.
Triss II: Okay, very well.
K'NE: I am concerned by this mirror, how it has turned to shining dust. Do you know how this turned to shining dust?
Triss II: No, I do not.
Miss Polly Anna III: I know how it turned to shining dust.
Miss Polly Anna III: By being in your hands. By showing it to other people's faces. You made something that is not real into an object. Mirrors are an idea for the mind.
K'NE: So then, what is this shining dust that we all see?
Miss Polly Anna III: It's just dust of the mind. It lays on the ground.
K'NE: Well then, I ought to throw it into the air!
K'ne bent down and shovelled up some of the shining dust into her hands, lifted it up, and tossed it into the air.
K'NE: If it's just dust of the mind, it ought to disappear and not drop on our heads or get into our eyes.
The dust went everywhere, even out into the crowd.
K'NE: There! Now it is everywhere! What do you say of that, Miss Polly Anna III?
Miss Polly Anna III: It looks beautiful! Dust of the mind! Everywhere!
Miss Polly Anna III bent down to shovel some of the remaining shining dust into her hands. She lept up with her body as she threw it into the air. Triss II started coughing.
Triss II: [cough, cough, cough] Wow, I am feeling delirious.
Miss Polly Anna III: He just said that because he is sensitive to the idea of what we did, but nobody is feeling a thing. Nothing is touching a hair.
K'NE: Yes, this is all just in our imagination. I get it. I'm finally seeing what you mean, Miss Polly Anna III.
Miss Polly Anna III: Yes, this whole stage is just our imagination. Everything is. I don't even know why we're here.
K'NE: I know. Why are we even here? Are we wasting our time?
Triss II: [cough, cough, cough]
Miss Polly Anna III: Yes we are, but is it beautiful or what?
Triss II: Beautiful? [cough, cough, cough, cough, cough] Down the rabbit's hole we go!
K'NE: Nah. If we were going down the rabbit's hole, we wouldn't know it.
Miss Polly Anna III: That's what you think, but there ARE people who know it. Those that really know it usually say words like, "Play along!"
K'NE: What do you mean "play along"?
Miss Polly Anna III: You know, play, like a game. :)
K'NE: A game?
Miss Polly Anna III: Aren't you the one who's suppose to know everything? Yes, a game!
K'NE: OH, suddenly everything is feeling funny. I think I'm getting dizzy by this game.
Triss II: [cough, cough, cough] I keep my head together by keep coughing.
Miss Polly Anna III: Yes, he's very smart. We should all be coughing right now. Start coughing, K'ne, and your dizziness will go away!
K'NE: [cough, cough, cough]
Miss Polly Anna III: Now rub your eyes as if the shining dust got in them!
K'NE: I'm feeling very happy now, thank you Miss Polly Anna III!
Miss Polly Anna III: You're very welcome. I'm glad to be of assistance to you. Now, keep rubbing those eyes!
K'NE: You, too!
Miss Polly Anna III: No, I don't have to.
K'NE: Why? Don't you want to play the game? Games are for fun. Don't you want to have fun?
Miss Polly Anna III: Fun? This is not fun to me.
Miss Polly Anna III: Why? Because, I did not come here to be a teacher. I'm a healer. I came here to suffer so I can turn my sufferings around and have the energy to heal....
K'NE: Miss Polly Anna III ............. A HEALER? SUFFERING?
Miss Polly Anna III: Yeah, I'm suppose to turn all my sufferings into the energy of healing. I do this very easily. I see things for what they are. I see that nothing is too hard to face, nothing is too hard to deal with, nothing is too hard to go through ......
Miss Polly Anna III: Oh, I'm not very strong, actually. I'm just natural about it. I mean, it all comes natural to me to be a healer.
K'NE: So, what is your style of healing? Do you think about the style of healing you do, or is it just something you know seems to exude from your being and you're not quite sure what is taking place?
Miss Polly Anna III: Oh no, I certainly know and think about the very healing that I do ....and give.
K'NE: And what is that? What kind is it?
Miss Polly Anna III: Well, I mostly specialize in the healing of giving amnesia to people. Don't you think that's the best healing in all the world? I love and gloat over my abilities and what they represent. Isn't that the most PERFECT thing to give to people so that all their wounds and pains are healed, or whatever else they may be needing? I find amnesia covers all problems of all the problems that should ever happen to people. I actually believe I have the ULTIMATE healing gift and powers of ALL TIME. I mean, think of it -- who would ever think that it is really amnesia that people need?
K'NE: Hmmmm, that's very interesting! And do you think you have this power and ability because it just so happened to work out that way? Or do you think it's because it was exactly what YOU were needing, and because you GOT IT, now you have it to give?
Miss Polly Anna III: Well, I really don't think all about THAT.
Miss Polly Anna III swung her hair all around into her own eyes, sticking, after saying "THAT". K'ne threw her hands up with laughter!
K'NE: Okay....whatever. I wonder where Triss II is?
Miss Polly Anna III couldn't tell because her hair was stuck in her eyes, she was plcking and pulling each strand out slowly. K'ne started to look all around the stage for Triss II. He was somewhere behind the stage in silence. K'ne found him.
Triss II: They told me to go backstage so they could sing to me.
Triss II kept his head down while he bobbed his body in motion with the music he was hearing.
K'NE: What are they singing? Do tell!
K'ne was very excited for this.
Triss II: They're singing:
The losers are on the loose! The losers are on the loose! Ho-high the merry way the losers are on the loose!
K'NE: Oh, how fun, I'll sing with them!
One day I shall be free! One day I shall be free! High-ho the merry way One day I shall be free!
Miss Polly Anna III began to try to drown out K'ne's voice, singing:
Miss Polly Anna III: We shall overcome! We shall overcome! We shall over! come! some! day!
All three of them twirled all around each other as they all sang their own song as if to drown everybody else's voices out. What an orchestra of music this was! But this only made PULS, with his red hot angry face, to come out onto the stage. He started to hit all three of them over the head with his Lavender Wand.
PULS: Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
All of a sudden, very quickly, a NEW PUPPET came right out onto the stage. Nobody knew where she came from or who she was.
Lovely Lady Mimi: We really MUST have peace in this room! Truly, indeed, most vehemently, we need peace in this room!
PULS: This is NOT a ROOM. This is a STAGE!
Puls slapped Lovely Lady Mimi over the head.
Lovely Lady Mimi: I cannot have all this abuse here. [whack!]
Lovely Lady Mimi whacked PULS over the head with her cane.
Lovely Lady Mimi was an old lady puppet but she looked maybe only around forty-something. She kept her clothes clean and shiny. She was wearing a blue dress, deep blue, very blue. Her hair was dyed black and her eyes were a blue turquoise blue. She walked with a cane, but she didn't really need it. She used it only if she should have an anxiety attack and lose her balance. It was a great moment that she even travailed outside her home at all, just because the anxiety attacks she would get for these sudden out of the blue tipsy moments she had. K'ne took great delight in her right away!
K'NE: Oh, Miss Beautiful Lovely Lady Mimi! It is so nice to meet you! I love your dress! I love your eyes. I love the way you carry yourself across the stage. I love that cane, I love your hair, I love everything about you!
Lovely Lady Mimi smiled, but she had to step back a bit, K'ne was coming on to her so strong.
K'NE: Oh. Lovely Lady Mimi, I don't mean to scare you or anything, it's just that your eyes are so captivating that I must ask you, if you will allow, I'm totally into astrology and I'm always trying to figure out people's rising sign by the way they look. May I guess your rising?
Lovely Lady Mimi: My rising? I don't do astrology. To heck with all of that.
K'NE: But Lovely Lady Mimi, your eyes, your eyes, my goodness, they are turqoise blue. BLUE turqoise blue, there's a difference. There's a green turqoise blue and there's a BLUE turqoise blue. You have the BLUUUUUUUUUE turqoise blue, how marvelous, you must be a Pisces riser! They are so rare!
Lovely Lady Mimi: Pisces riser. I am NOT a Pisces at ALL. I am a Gemini!
K'NE: No, Gemini is your Sun sign. The rising is determined by your time of birth. Do you know your time of birth?
Lovely Lady Mimi: I really don't know.
K'NE: Do you have your birth certificate, because it would be right on that. They have to put your correct birth time on your birth cetificate. It's highly important to ALWAYS know your time of birth, did you know that?
Lovely Lady Mimi lifted her cane, pointed it directly at K'ne's face as if to warn her again, but K'ne just kept on going.
K'NE: When you know your time of birth, you can then figure out EXACTLY where all the planets were when you were born. It's a major imprint upon all the energies that are at work within you. How could you not want to know that?
Lovely Lady Mimi kept raising her cane more and more as if to inch it right into K'ne's face.
K'NE: Now Lovely Lady Mimi, you should put that cane down. I am talking to you about this for YOURSELF! For YOU! This is not for me, but for you to know yourself better, or to have better understanding of all the things you feel or go through in life. The planets and their positions will tell you everything about you and your life, why you are here, where you are going, what you are to learn, how to grow!
Lovely Lady Mimi started to step slowly forth getting her cane almost directly into K'ne's eyes. K'ne slapped the cane down hard.
K'NE: Get that ugly cane out of my face! I'm talking to you about BEAUTIFUL things and you want to hurt me for that? NO. No, get your cane down and get far away from me, youuuuuuuuu!
Miss Polly Anna III was laughing away. Triss II moved closer inbetween K'ne and Lovely Lady Mimi. And PULS had moved himself away from the stage, staring at K'ne from behind one of the curtains.
Lovely Lady Mimi: Dear, dear, dear K'ne...I wasn't going to hit you with my cane....
K'NE: Then why did you put it in my eyes?
Lovely Lady Mimi: I was pointing into your eyes so you could stop talking for a minute. I was wanting to talk about your eyes and understand what they mean to you. As for me, I have lovely blue turqoise blue eyes because of the LORD. The LORD made me. I'm beautiful because of the LORD, not because of the planets. I don't believe the planets made us. We believe the LORD made us.
K'ne went completely silent. What a marvel, to be hearing someone talk about the LORD, to even say the word "LORD". She hadn't heard that in a long time.
K'NE: And do you think the LORD made the planets?
Lovely Lady Mimi: Of course, but we don't think about the planets.
K'NE: What do you think your body is made of?
Lovely Lady Mimi had no answer.
K'NE: Do you know your body is made with all the elements that are in the planets within our galaxy? Do you understand the sack of water your body was in when you were in your mother's womb? Do you know that without that water, that very unique special "water", even your skin would not have been able to form? Do you know all the elements within that water? Do you know we are on a planet that is just floating and bobbing with spinning motion? Do you know this planet circles around the sun? Do you know that all our planets in our galaxy are all doing the same thing, circling around the sun? Do you understand any of these things and what they cause to the very vibrations of our bodies? Wait! Do you ever notice how some people are always calm, something calm about them, and yet there are others who always seem a bit nervous, some kind of nervous energy about them?
Lovely Lady Mimi: Well, yes....hmmm, that's true. Yes, I do notice there's a difference.
K'ne finally began to smile.
Lovely Lady Mimi: But we don't follow astrology. We follow the LORD.
K'NE: And do you believe that the LORD made all these planets?
Lovely Lady Mimi began to tremble and get nervous. God knows the last time she ever had to stop and think about something so natural as this! But, she had not. She was too busy thinking only about the LORD.
K'NE: When was the last time you thought about yourself, Lovely Lady Mimi? Is it always "THINK ONLY ABOUT THE LORD 24/7 by golly, 24/7...the LORD, THE LORD, THE LORD?
Lovely Lady Mimi: You're making me feel very nervous. Don't you understand that it is much more comfortable to think only about the Lord? It is my safe haven of intellectual advancement. I have nothing higher ever to achieve. I find my ultimate thought and emotion expressed at last, yes...to think only about the Lord 24/7. And do you really, I mean really....really, do you think you could ever really get me to stop THAT?
The Puppet Show: September 28, 2010 Being Happy For Yourself
[K'ne comes out to the stage by herself and talks to the children. She's wearing her beautiful turquoise dress.]
K'ne: Well, it was fun, wasn't it? All the shows. Did you see them all? Well, if you didn't, we have many, many more to come. This next show is about being happy for yourself. Does anybody know how that might look?
[ A boy named Timothy raised his hand.]
K'ne: Yes. You. What's your name?
K'ne: Timothy, do you know what it looks like to be happy for yourself?
Timothy: I have trucks and planes and choo-choo train and I play with them a lot! My Mommy gave these to me and my Daddy plays with them, too!
K'ne: Oh, that's wonderful, Timothy! Yes, that looks like how it might look. But here, we have a stage. And here we will put something in it so that we can play, too, just like you. Just like you.
[Puppet Master dropped down a river just like a stage prop... a light plastic put-together-looking river. It was brought down by strings from the Puppet Master.]
K'ne: Here is a river.
[The children began looking at one another with a puzzled look as if this was a stupid, crazy thing.]
K'ne:See the river? Watch the river run. The river will run. Forget about "see Jane run". There is no Jane Run. There is only River Run. The river runs dry. Why is this so?
[Another child raised their hand.]
K'ne: You. Yes, you. What is your name?
[She said it so loud and clear. She had a lot of practice.]
K'ne: Oh, Samantha, you said your name so loud and clear. How nice! Okay. The river runs dry. Why is this so? Do you know?
Samantha: Yes, it's because the sky is too BIG!
K'ne: Yes, the sky is too BIG, it makes the river run dry. See? See how the water is not moving now? The water must have went up into the BIG sky. I think Samantha is very right!
[Suddenly IG comes out onto the stage laughing and having a good feeling about himself.]
IG: I knew I would come back to life if K'ne brought out the River that never runs dry. I just knew I would come back to life.
[IG began bouncing around, flapping his arms, while K'ne stood still as a board.]
K'ne: No, IG, you are too old to be hit over the head, so I will just talk to you plainly and simply: This is not a River that never runs dry. This is a River that has run dry. This is not a River I brought out to you. This is a river that the Puppet Master has brought out. And for this, for some mysterious reason, for this... you now... have appeared. It appears to me that the Puppet Master is saying... when the river runs dry, the old come back to life.
IG: I love being alive again. I always knew that I would live again. Life is what you make it, and I say, "I'm just lucky to be alive." Because I say that, guess what? I live again.
K'ne: You're too old to be hit over the head. We will have to stare at you and see what you will do with nobody on the stage... except a dry river.
[K'ne walked off the stage.]
IG: Now you will see how much fun I will have with just a dry river! No friends around. Nothing left to do but see a dry river. But let me show you how happy I am.
[IG began to crack off the glued rocks that were stuck to the fake plastic dry river.]
IG: See these rocks? They are individual. They are one-of-a-kind. I will throw them.
[All the children began to scream or squish back in their seats, but IG began to sing.]
IG: No, I will not throw them at you. I will throw them to the ground to hear the sound that they will DO.
[IG threw another one and another one, to the ground, until a musical sound was being formed.]
[K'ne was watching IG from the corners of the drapes behind the stage, her eyes were filling with tears softly falling.]
K'ne:[Whispering to herself]: What a beautiful man. Someday he will be loads of fun for all the world.
[Oh, the children just craved to get on the stage and do it themselves. K'ne felt their need to try something new, so she walked out to the stage while IG continued to play.]
K'ne: Lovely children, do not get ants in your pants about this! I want you to know there are rocks just like his right at the exit doors of this auditorium. You can get your Mommies to buy them for you. Or your Daddies. Two dollars a piece!
[K'ne hated the idea of money for something that was free -- freely given from the earth to all. But she also knew that people don't value things that are for free. The children looked at the exit doors, which were open... and they could see the tables filled with rocks to buy.]
K'ne: Do not get ants in your pants to buy them right now! The show has only begun, but we'll make it short and sweet. Watch more all the things you can do with a dry river.
[K'ne began to walk slowly off the stage again.]
IG: I will balance a rock on my head now. I will balance and balance and balance until I fall to the ground.
[IG was swerving around, and then he fell.]
IG: Oh, it's so fun to fall on the ground! Fall, and get up. Fall, and get up.
[Whatever IG did, all the children wanted to do, too. There was something about him that made the children want to follow his lead.]
I am tired of falling and getting up. I am tired of singing with my feet. I am tired of throwing all these rocks. I am tired of the things I might see...
But, here we go again thinking a'new!
Here we go again something new to do!
Wishing is not good -- it's better to run! When the river is all dry, think of only... ALL THE FUN!
Do I need you, all of you now? To find myself happy, do I need you around?
Do I need friends to learn how to play? Do I need your attention, or should you go away?
I need only myself and BIG DRY EMPTY RIVER! No water for the sound, just the BIG SKY all a'quiver...
Rain drops on my head may play with me someday hitting all the sores that K'ne so greatly gave...
here I go again back to my healthy self the one that is so pure the one that needs no help.
[IG began to take the rocks... the rocks he adored, all the life within them were also very PURE.]
Pure is a power people will never give. Pure is a lover people never meet. Pure is the life, and don't think you'll ever meet anyone as pure as a rock at your feet.
[IG placed the rocks all in one line and began to tip-toe on each one. Holding one foot out, still, he balanced himself with the Sky.]
[:instrumental music flowing with Puppet Master's song:]
and the curtains closed and the children jumped up to go get the rocks.
