The Book of Choices
The everyday word we use to define a protection from future illness or potential calamity, the word we use to describe our most precious organ of sight and the word we use to denote new life in nature all share a common bond. These three words; - "inoculate", "eye" and "bud", though seemingly most diverse are formed from the very same Latin root; - "oculus"
It may therefore not be coincidental that a medieval manuscript offering great solace, perception and guidance should have been entitled: - "Oculatum"
This single volume, more correctly a collection of writings, was first mentioned at the time of the Great Fire in 1666 but had been brought to England much earlier by Flemish refugees escaping tyranny in Europe. It contains a series of observations, at times ambiguous, at times direct, but as poignant today, if not more so, than they ever were in the Middle Ages.
It is a textbook
that may offer for the attentive reader a clarity, strength and awareness
in their daily life, but it will change all who read it. It has no
beginning and no end, may be read in either direction. The reader must
select which is the top and which is the bottom prior to opening the
cover. This demand upon the reader to form a decision and then act upon it
is perhaps appropriate, for "The Oculatum 636" is known also by another
name; -"Book of Choices"
