Women Who Date the Clasic Bad Boy, Pinocchio!

Pinocchio is the classic story of the rebel without of cause falling folly to their parents faults. Ending up between addiction and prison. But what make them so attractive to women who want to save them?

Now some men may be six feet tall,Guest Posting own a platinum card, retain a drivers license, able to die for our country, and saddle up to the bar stool legally; but it does not guarantee that they are and adult. These are owls and crows with degrees. Or Monkeys with wigs. Then others are more like Pinocchio falling from addiction, to abuse, and prison.

In some cases, they are not even adolescent yet. But still boys waiting for the maturity of puberty to come on. My advice to you women who are dating them, jump ship! If you stay with them, here is the fairy Tale to save them that has been in the movie AI and saving nemo. But maybe after this story you will not.

PinocchioNow Geppetto wanted a son. But he was not ready yet to raise one because his temper was great. He was not taught enough by his own parents example to be a fine parent. But he made a son anyway.

Now like father like son, Pinocchio was a rascal like his old man. Which made things worse for him. For every time Pinocchio got in trouble, it reminded Geppetto of the shame and trouble he brought his own father. This only mad him more angry at Pinocchio. Once out in public, Geppetto was seen thrashing Pinocchio. Which he was sent to prison for.

During this time Pinocchio raised himself. He took to doing everything he wanted to. Jumping through brooks, through dales, and fields. Always watching out for the police who was after him originally on the day they arrested Geppetto. One day Pinocchio returns home to find a Cricket talking to him. This Cricket has lived in the house for a hundred years. He warns Pinocchio if he does not learn to earn a keep by hand and mind he would turn into an ass. So Pinocchio throws a hammer at him and kills him. This Cricket was a minute version of Merlin. The old sage that lives in our mind. Also these can be external real people who speak outward of what we know we should be doing. It is like the angel on the shoulder who gets knocked off for the promises of fun and easy pursuits by the devil on the other. But they are both our friends who come to us in our youth. Like Merlin advising Arthur before he pulls the sword of adulthood and direction from the stone, the Cricket had came to teach this boy how to be a good King of his own life.

This begins the long arduous road to redemption for Pinocchio. He becomes like many believing that the devils path of denial and ease will bring him to heaven. But the devil will be his friend. Like his father, Pinocchio will find himself in prison in time too.

So Pinocchio with no trade or eduction finds himself hungry in his house alone. Except for a single egg in the corner. He cracks it open to cook an omelet. But a Chick flies out and thanks him for his help and flies away. The egg is the symbol of the soul, and his is cracked. The chick, like at easter, is the resurrection of our redemption into better people. Which is far from coming for our little Pinocchio. This is the first of many bird references within the story. Alchemy which is the spiritual practice of turning the lead of your soul into gold is referred by many as the Secret language of Birds.

Giving up for the night, Pinocchio falls asleep with his feet on the foot warmer he hoped to cook the omelet on. Being made out of wood, he woke in the morning to find his feet burned off. The feet is the symbol of parental foundation, which he has none.

Geppetto is released from Prison that morning to find his son alone in the house. Geppetto has no key to get in and calls to Pinocchio. But Pinocchio can not make it to the door. He is reluctant to let the father back in. But Geppetto makes his way in through the window and is feeling great guilt over leaving Pinocchio to raise himself he ignores his son refusal to let him in and promises to make him new feet. He also gives Pinocchio his only three pears and starves himself. Pinocchio eats them all without sharing any.

Pinocchio is so grateful for the pears that he promises to go to school and become a good boy. So Geppetto sells his only coat, being an old thin man cost him much, so Pinocchio can buy an ABC book. But before Pinocchio can buy such a book, he spends his money on a puppet show.

At the puppet show the puppets treat him like a brother. But the puppet master finds him and wants to use him as firewood to cook his meal on. Pinocchio talks his way out of it, but the puppet master calls for Harlequin to be placed on the fire instead. But Pinocchio pleads for his new found brothers life and saves him. For his kindness, the Puppet master gives Pinocchio five gold coins for his poor father without a coat.

Pinocchio means well. He has shown compassion for his brother, but society is a mean mistress. Far worse than any lover nature pretended to be with her storms and famines. For society is filled with cats and foxes waiting to prey on your desires and weaknesses. Pinocchio is enticed by a fox missing its paw and a blind cat. Enticed in believing that beyond the Town of Simple Simons lay a field. A field that is so magical it is called the field of Wonders. That if anyone was to place a gold coin buried within it, it would sow thousands in its place by morning.

A bird tries to warn Pinocchio about this bluff, but he is snatched out of mid air by this blind cat and eaten for his troubles. Instinct is overcome by greed.

So Pinocchio journeys on with his new found friends a short distance to this field. The devil promised a short cut, but as Pinocchio finds that the devil’s short cut always makes one weary. So our group falls to an inn for the night. The Fox who could not think of eating more than a cracker eats an ox. Where the cat who says he ate before his journey tonight falls to eating the herd the ox came from. But Pinocchio who is lost in his dreams loses hi hunger. The group adjourns for the night.

Pinocchio awake in the middle of the night to get his friends to continue onto the field. But they are gone leaving the tab and a message to meet them under the a tree in that field. Pinocchio’s first gold coin is lost.

On the way he meets with the cricket once more. Like Merlin, Gandolf, and soon you will find out Dumbledor have all returned from the dead to advise us. The voice we ignored telling us the right thing to do has never left. Only occasionally we allow it to sneak in to advise us to ignore our ego and do what is right. But it makes no promises and calls for work. The cricket warns Pinocchio once again that wealth only comes from the work of mind and hand. But it falls on wooden ears.

At the tree Pinocchio is confronted with assassins who try to steal his money. Pinocchio places it in his mouth and bite off one of their hands when they try to steal it. These assassins were the cat and fox in disguise. So the capture Pinocchio and hang him by his neck on a grand oak. Expecting to find him dead in the morning with his mouth open and the coins littered on the ground. The hanged man in the tarot cards which is taken from the myth of Odin who had given himself to himself on a tree for nine nights to gain illumination. It is the act of dying to oneself that brings on a new job, the end of a habit, or the courage to leave our abusive spouse. It is the act of killing misses Smith just to become Joan. The act of quitting the job to become Frank. It is sacrifice of what is killing us no more faster than cigarette do.

An old axiom is, if you want to boil a frog you must turn up the heat slowly. Most of what is in life that kills us comes on this slow and is easy to be denied.

But a fairy that denied him access to her home when he was running from the assassins has pity for him now. She sends a falcon to free him and return him to he house. This is the woman who can only fall in love with the bad boy. Some one she can save. This urge tends to be grown in a child when a parent does not act like one and falls abuse to the world or the other parent. So the child becomes the adult to soon in vain attempts to save the parent. In hopes the parent will love and save them. When they find themselves incapable of saving the parent, they try to save the world.

But they are not all sweetness and light, for just like their parent they have a hyde side. Every victim needs a slayer and the king is twin to the fool. Tables turn quick in this world.

An owl, a crow, and the cricket returns to doctor our near dead Pinocchio. The Owl and Crow are the air bags of wealth and position young boys in our society must admire to become. But Pinocchio knows truth, if education and work make you like them, he wants nothing of it. But Cricket abuses him ones more for his sins.

Being half dead the Fairy tries to give him medicine. This medicine is trying to point out Pinocchio’s faults so he can change his life. But he will not hear any of it without the sugar of the sweat tongue. In praising him to do better, Pinocchio never hears his faults until two black rabbits come into the room carrying a coffin.

How many times does one come near to prison, death, or suicide before he changes his ways. He is scared straight. But it becomes too much for the youth to continue without the constant fear of death in his mind. So relapse is imminent for these people.

Always two steps forward, three steps back. The abuser in the codependency relationship is always sorry the day after and treats his partner like a god or queen for a couple of weeks until society pulls the rug out from him again. And back into the abuse of his or her partner.

Now The Blue Fairy wants to save his father and Pinocchio and has sent for geppetto to move in. The woman in this relationship does not only see her mate but also her father in him she wants to save.

So she asks Pinocchio about his money. Like Irish women in Ireland during the thirties, they new their men will spend the dole in the bar if they did not go with them. So she asks where is the money? He says he lost it and his nose grows. Only to have woodpeckers whittle it down when he confesses.

On a side note. I knew a woman who went from codependent relationship to another. She had a lie detector test to tell if you had been drinking. She would get more than your nose to grow and check the salt content in your semen. Saltier the more you were drinking.

But on the way on meeting Geppetto half way he meets the cat and fox again. They convince him to go with them to the field to bury the coins once more. But Pinocchio ignores his instinct once more when he sees the cat missing a paw. Oh well.

Now they walk through Simple Simon Town. A town like an crack alley. Filled with animals who gave everything they owned for an instant fix in this world. Hairless dogs, featherless peacocks, and sheared sheep. The only ones who rode in fine cadillacs was the foxes, crows, and vultures who fed on these people. The pimps, dealers, bosses, bad parents, and politicians. On past the town they go to the Field of Wonders where Pinocchio buries his money.

He returns in the morning to find a parrot laughing at him for believing the cat and fox. So he runs back to the town to report the robbery, but it is himself in turn he is sent to jail. Like Father like son, swearing he did nothing wrong for he was only an accomplis to his own down fall.

How many times do these youths just find themselves just being around the wrong people and find themselves in trouble. To only find that society turns a death ear and the courts are no better than him. Just monkeys in wigs.

But on a great celebration, all the thieves are released from jail. Sometimes the real thieves who steal by suitcase and not a gone are rewarded. The world seems to be a contradiction to these youths. Always projecting their faults on others. So pinocchio says to the guard he is a thief as well and is freed. What the fairy wished him not to do, frees him in the end.

The horse has no udders and the cow does not whiny but up is down and sideways is straight ahead.

Upon his release he promises once more to do his best to change is ways. But on the way back to the Fairies house, he is halted by a snake across his path.

The snake is the symbol on the death card in the Tarot. It is turn a new leaf, shedding your skin to a new life. Upon his attempts to walk a new path the snake busts a vein laughing and dies. So pitiful is the truth in Pinocchio’s attempt to change.

On his way back he gets hungry and tries to steal some grapes from a farmer. He is only stealing because of hunger, not greed. So he is caught in a trap set for weasels that have been eating the farmers chickens. Pinocchio’s life is spared if he acts as the farmers watch dog who died that morning. Much like the irish god Cuhulain who had killed his hosts dogs because he was late for dinner. Had to serve a year as the man’s dogs.

Now in Alchemy you must balance off your animal side with your civilized form. Not to forsake one for the other but bring them into accord. But for Pinocchio he was way to much a creature driven by his impulses. But impulses can be trained into instincts to accompany our civilized nature. This is what the novel steppenwolf is about.

The weasels come to him in the night and promise the same for him that they gave the dog. One chicken for every eight they steel. But Pinocchio turns them in to become dinner for a poor family in town. The Farmer is so proud he releases Pinocchio. But Pinocchio learned more than to harness his desires, he learned to keep the dead dog’s secret out of compassion.

He returns to the Blue Fairy to find out the girl he loved had died of abandonment. When the abusive mate leaves and comes back to find the other changed for the better, he feels like she has died and no longer sees her. He tries everything to make her fall back into old destructive habits.

But a dove comes to him. The symbol of the holy spirit comes to guide him. He rides on her shoulders to a far peak to see his father fighting ocean waves to come and save him.

Like the movie Finding Nemo, sometimes the parent takes real steps to save themselves to better their children. Geppetto is trying but he is a long way coming.

The ocean is the symbol of the subconscious mind. The height Pinocchio watches from is seen in the alchemy symbol of the Purer and the spirit on the hill. This is your mood that can hear all your faults with ownership. It is also the place you believe your dreams are possible. It is the mood you can plan from your mistakes to achieve your dreams. But this mood is only for planning and is useless without acting upon them.

Pinocchio, instead of staying in this mood. He jumps into the same chaos Geppetto is fighting. For them both to almost drown. But Pinocchio ends up on the island of Busy Bees to hear Geppetto was eaten by a whale. On the island he can not get any charity to satisfy his hunger. He turns down manner labors for pay, to finally settle on carrying a jug of water for a woman back to her hut for a three course meal. Including desert.

The woman turns out to be the resurrected fairy Girl with blue hair. This is the opposite of his past girlfriend. She is the controlling mother who is seen in fairy tales as the wicked witch. He will now get a job that she approves of to support her orders. He needs the fear of the mother to fit into society. He might even become a lawyer or doctor like the owl and crow at this point. His dreams and true potential is lost to this woman. He now plays the victim instead of the slayer.

He keeps his job for some time and is providing many comforts for his wife. But some one from the old crowd, but different walks in. Gets him skip work for something grand. He promises him that the whale has been seen of the beach. So Pinocchio in hopes of finding his father gives up his job. But at the beach there is no whale and he is jumped by seven men. Representing the seven deadly sins. One throws a math book at him and hits another instead who is presumed dead. The police arrive and Pinocchio is chased by a police dog.

They run a long distance until Pinocchio jumps into the ocean. He uses his instincts. The dog falls in after him and begins to drown. Pinocchio is driven to compassion over his own fears of his freedom and saves the dog.

From there Pinocchio enter a cave with the smell of frying fish. He is caught in a net and is mistaken for a fish. Allot of times these youths will enter the subconscious symbol of the cave looking for a new faith. Many fall into cults. Some if they are lucky will join Jehovah’s witness. A good organization for were they are in life, but stayed in to long you will find yourself on the plate at a fish fry. Much like AA becomes a crutch too. All youths must move past this point. For Pinocchio, the police dog saves him from the fire. The dog might be the symbol of his own authority building within him to keep him out of trouble without AA or the Witnesses.

Pinocchio returns to his old job, but another buddy gets him to go on a bender that last five months in the land of Toys. But on his way he finds a talking mule who tries to warn him. These are the other people in our crowd who are trying to get straight who are pressured not to. So Pinocchio turns into ass once again.

Here he is sold into the circus. On the first night of his show he maims his back leg jumping through a hoop. So he is sold to a man to drown so he can have his hide to make a new drum head. So he is thrown into the ocean to drown. He is eaten by fish who rip apart his donkey parts.

In many primitive culture this is experienced by Shamans. In modern societies it is the short schizophrenia break down many go through during times of great stress. The drum is very important in this ritual for Shamans. It is said the ride into the other world on its skin. In these vision shamans from around the world talk about animals ripping their limbs apart. Just to be put back togethor in a better shape. But some do not return whole and ride a half skinned drum.

Pinocchio rises from the sea a Puppet once more and swims away. In the distance he sees a goat with blue hair on a rock. He believes it to the blue fairy in disguise once more.

My uncle had married a swedish model with long blonde hair to get divorced to mary a Lebanese woman with long legs. To final settle on my father’s advice of marrying an ugly woman. He lasted the longest so far with her, but with many heart aches.

But before Pinocchio makes it to her he is swallowed by the same whale as his father. The whale is the symbol of the night journey back to the beginning. As the sun travels to the east to rise again in the morning. Jonah had taken the same journey. To the beginning is to his father who has gone through the same inward journey longer than him. This is where the father finds Nemo. In the whale Pinocchio meets a Tunny who follows him out. This could be that donkey who was trying to get straight who followed your example and got clean. So when Pinocchio and Geppetto can not swim any further after escaping the whale, the Tunny saves them out of appreciation.

Once on land they meet the fox and cat once more who have fallen into poverty. They leave them to their own fates.

Pinocchio looks for charity and food for his father at this hut. It is the hut of the blue goat. The next girlfriend is better but still not the right one, but she still sees her own father in him. But in the house the cricket is back. He tells Pinocchio of a farmer he can get milk from for his father. For Geppetto never had the caring comfort he needed from his mother as well. The symbol of milk. So Pinocchio goes to beg for some milk from the farmer. But no charity will be had. So he pulls water from the well the donkey used to do for the farmer. The donkey is the friend who got him in trouble from work who is now sick and struck out as an ass. Not only does he return every day to earn milk for his father put he helps out his sick fiend by pulling water out of the well for him. In time the farmer teaches him all sort of trades he earns a keep by his mind and hand finally. One he loves.

In show of success he is to reward himself and his father with new clothes. But he hears the Blue fairy is sick in the hospital from loneliness. For somewhere out there there is the perfect mate who is dying slowly for you to save your life so you can finally see them. For in the Grail Story, Percival does not see his wife until he save himself. True love does not ever see us until we see it in ourselves. But they can pine away waiting for that day or settle on second best and linger if we take too long.

So Pinocchio works harder to earn more to save the Blue Fairy.

This time his dream comes true and he wakes a real boy and the fairy comes to him. His old self lies motionless in the corner as a mere puppet. He does not scorn it.

Buddhist have a principle of making people ancestors. They do not hate their oldselves by placing guilt upon them, but give them credence they did their best during trying times. But their ways are no longer for them giving up good for better. They honor their past who taught them to be what they are today.

But he is now on the journey to become a man and an adult, but that is another different story.

I guess it is challenging to have faith in these types of youths. With them only changing out of fear or to satisfy others. It takes them a long time to look down within them to save themselves in this contrary society where some crimes of society and the self are rewarded. They find the devil to be their best friend, for if the devil who was portrayed by the cat and fox was not there he would of not fell victim to his own desires and faults that brought him to near death. This is the point your friend the devil asks you to listen to his brother Christ to earn your life through hand and mind and not his short road of promises that takes years to walk. Or loose it. But in time, if we do not loose our lives to them and join their missery. The tedium to boredom with side journeys to apathy might be worth the wait if we avoid joining them in hardship and give them a chance to help themselves. But it is no place to be in a relationship with them until they save themselves. But society should always give them a chance as we look at our own faults and contradictions and change them. For in ways they are our own devils who show us the errors of our ways.
