There are 2 different sides to the individual LC, (like Gollem and Smeagol
): which side will you feed more, which sidete be whole and one (very Zen), but that’s not the case here. Here is unrest, discord and fairly harsh words from one to the other. The noses are not pointing in one direction ; on the contrary, neither of the two can convince the other, they are fixed on their own side of the drawn line.
The I take it a little easier: he calls himself to be mild, he has suffered a lot and wants (because of that?) to go out of town and to have a good time. He dismisses all criticism, wants a kiss, and his making-love-style is fine, nothing wrong with that!.He shows - despite his being mild - great irritation: I do not like your tone, stop writing everything down! And it's more than irritation, it is a real struggle, almost a war: one must win and the I claims to have already won. Not: I win but: I have won. The music also is sometimes pushy: do you not expect me to give in!
The You is stricter, and judgmental, the one who wants change and action, to live where the suffering is. The You never speaks for himself, he is quoted by the I and it is questionable whether that is an objective quote….
I recognize it, though. I try every morning to sit / meditate and sometimes I say to myself afterwards: well, that was not very good, Meryam, you can and should do better! Then I am a severe You, too...
The middle part I do not quite understand:
The pull of the moon, the thrust of the sun
Thus the ocean is crossed
The waters are blessed while a shadowy guest
Kindles a light for the lost
Who is the shadowy guest who rears a candle for the lost (singular or plural?)? His own shadow side?
