The sky slept at night. Eyes twinkled in the sky. The sun swam like a dream. I have a Father who loves me in Heaven.

Morning opened a canvass of impressionism. Monet’s palette was painting the sky. Clouds were like gigantic scars. I thank Jehovah for this beautiful morn.

I have started reading the Gospel of Mathew. The Pharisees rebuked Jesus saying that he was using the Devil to perform miracles. Jesus replied with Stoic Calmness: Will Satan expel Satan? Will God expel God? What I am doing on earth, I am doing my father’s will in Heaven.

When I was working in Jakarta they used to pay me salaries in US Dollars. The value of the Indonesian currency is so low that 100$ equals 11 Million Indonesian Rupees Dollarization of the world is a financial conspiracy and it’s an agenda for establishing the person with the mark of the beast 666.

I would like to divulge the meaning of ART from the view point of existential philosophy. Being as Art has three states: angst, ecstasy and catharsis. The mind soul and body becomes recipient of these three states. Then comes the art of creation called: cerebra-celebration. Here art becomes applied as art, music, literature, science and math. There also two other states of becoming art and they are cognition and interpretation.

Does God answer our prayers? Yes he does! We have to pray without ceasing. God will answer our prayers. God Jehovah Jesus is the music of creation, and he is highest embodiment of art.

My coming to Christ was not an easy one. But I am so happy now and he has given me the peace that the world cannot give.
Going without bell and brake is an idiom in Malayalam and it means rushing headlong into something. The consequences of going without bell and brake can be disastrous.

Jesus said this parable: if a man has hundred sheep and if one is lost: won’t he go back and look for the lost sheep? Going after Sheep can be made into an idiom. As an Idiom it means learning from one’s mistakes. Yes, I am going after the sheep. When will you go after the sheep? What have you learnt after going after the sheep?

Who is the most beautiful person who lived on this earth? The answer is Jesus Christ the savior.

The Parable of the Seed is a beautiful parable to read. A farmer planted seed. Some fell on the road and the birds came and ate it away. Some fell on gravel and roots perished. Some fell amongst weed and when it grew the weed chocked it. Some seed feel on ground and it became good fruit. The seed which fell on the road refers to those who have dreams but have no hope. The seed that fell amongst gravel refers to those who have dreams but fear of failure makes them discouraged. The seed that fell on weed refers to people who are lazy and become failures in life. The seed that fell on good ground refers to people who have dreams and work hard to accomplish it.

How to Write A Novel

There are four Genres of the Novel and they are the Painting-Novel, the Narrative Novel, the Philosophical novel and the Plot Novel. A writer can write one genre but most writers incorporate all the genres into writing.

Painting-Novel
In the painting novel the writer paints pictures with words. In other words: the writer uses tropes to ornament and decorate the language. Some common tropes used are: Metaphors, Similes, Personification, Hyperbole, Metonymy, Synecdoche, Zeugma, Oxymoron and many more.

Metaphor
Metaphor is a comparison between two things and is used to bring out an aesthetic effect. Examples are: the sky is a beautiful ornament at night. My Pen is a slave for Christ.


Smiles

A simile is related to the Metaphor but uses like or as. Examples are: She is thin as a stick. Palestine is like a hot volcano.
Personification
Personification is used in poetry but also used in prose. Personification is making inanimate things speak. Examples are: The sky growled angrily. The wind spoke in whispers. The brook murmured.

Metonymy
Metonymy belongs to family of the metaphor and uses an object for comparison. An example is: The Land where the Sun Never sets has come to an end. The Land Where the sun never sets stands for the British Empire.

Synecdoche
A synecdoche uses a part for comparison. The ship (for fleet) went to war. Give us this day for our daily bread (the Lord’s Prayer).

Hyperbole
A hyperbole is an exaggerated statement. Examples are: you are an ant going to war with an elephant. Patience is million years of waiting.

Zeugma
A Zeugma is a figure of Speech where a word (verb) is used to mean two different things. Examples are: she fed the cat and her son.

Oxymoron
An Oxymoron is a figure of speech that shows a contradiction. Examples are she is both happy and sad.

Narrative Novel
A narrative novel has the following features. They are character, time and setting. Character is the resonance of the soul. The writer brings out things which she or he fails to speak about. Autobiographical experiences and people’s self are given the microscope of scrutiny.

Example of Autobiographical Nuances
This happened to me when I was 10 Years old. The bathroom in which we were staying had holes on the door. One day my mother went to bathe in it. A demon overcame me and I started peeping through the hole. Suddenly I could feel a strong grip on my shoulders. I turned back and to my surprise it was my father who was laughing at me.

An example of Character Sketch
My cousin is a good for nothing shady character. When he was in the 10th grade, he was chronic drug addict and was on psychiatric medication. Fed up his father pleaded to my father to wean him off medication and admit him into the school where which my father was running. My father used to spend long hours with him, hugging him and cajoling him and finally he was cured and he wrote and passed the exams. Now being well settled he came to visit me and asked how the school is doing? I said ‘it is doing well’. Then he made a caustic remark: ‘your school is made up of pariahs (untouchables) and I won’t send my son to study in your school.’ I became aghast at his words. Remarkably ironic is his understanding and tolerance of Indian culture and also remarkable is his thankless heart.


Time in the Novel

There are two types of time Narrative time and symbolic time. Narrative time is the consciousness of the author. It is usually done through Streams of Consciousness. Symbolic time is the lived time or the cyclic time.

An example of Narrative Time
You beautiful erotic poem—you have flowers in your body—you entice the poets heart—your kisses are like the stars at night—your breasts the cedar of Lebanon—your orifice is a honey lake—let me melt in you with love

An example of Symbolic Time
The terrorists from Pakistan invaded India and besieged the hotel. Soon the commandos made a strike and they made the people evacuate. All the terrorists were killed however there were a lot of causalities.

Philosophical Novel
A philosophical Novel is a novel that plays with language of meaning. The writer reinterprets texts, uses allegories, puns, fables, parables, idioms and allusions. The writer may also create new figures of speech.

Reinterpreting Texts or Inter-textuality
The writer Derrida, the postmodern philosopher has used the term Binary Divide. Binary Divide refers to the marginalization and privileging of texts. For example black vs. white. From Binary Divide, I have introduced the term Binary Fusion meaning a text which is neutral. Examples are s/he has the promise to be an actor. Jazz has been the gift of black culture and is used universally in the world as binary fusion.
Existential philosophy treats life as the absurd or the chaotic and gives meaning that man is condemned for angst. I have rewritten existential texts with new meaning. Life has a purpose and therefore living a life of purpose one has to be a purposeist. Life has value and that is called as valubleization.

Allusions
An allusion is making a reference to an older text. The most famous allusion is that of the ugly duckling (beautiful). My ex lover was an ugly duckling.

Idioms
An idiom means meaning is different from the sentence. I have created the idiom: Cast the Net. This is from the New Testament where the disciples of Jesus were fishing and they got no catch. Then Jesus said to them to throw their nets on to the other side. They did and got a prize catch. Cast your nets means to have a windfall bounty. Another idiom used in the media is Red Herring meaning misleading information. The news was a piece of red herring.

Allegory
Allegory is the symbolism of the language. The Dove standing for peace is a famous and well known Allegory. Another allegory is found in the psalm 23: valley of the shadow of death. This means that God is out to weather you in the trials and tribulations of life.

Pun
A pun is a play with meaning. For example: see: sea her body as erotic poetry.

Parables
Parables are stories with a moral content. Jesus was an accomplished person who spoke in parables. Let me narrate the parable of the seed. There was a man planted seeds. Some fell on the road and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on gravel and withered as there was no root. Some fell amongst weeds and weeds strangled them up. Some fell on good ground and they became fruitful. The seed that fell on the road refers to people who hear the word and don’t follow it. The word that fell on gravel is those who disobey and sin. The word that fell on weed refers to people who follow the world. The word that fell on ground are the faithful followers.

Fable
Fable is making animals speak. The Serpent ruling the country territoria speaks to his ministers: ‘let’s pass a decree for all to worship our tyranny. Let’s execute the doves who are believers’.’That’s a good suggestion’ replied the ministers. Most of the Doves were killed and few fled from the country of Territoria.

Plot-Novel
Plot of the novel is the mystery found in the Novel. There are two types of plots and they are narrative plot and the symbolic plot. In the Narrative Plot readers know what is happening but the characters are unaware. In the symbolic plot the readers keep on guessing. The story might have a strange twist in the end.


Symbolic Plot an Example

He was at his desktop typing the report of the murder of Professor Ioan Couliano, the Professor of Religions and Philosophy in the University in Chicago University. There were two conspiracy theories about his murder. One was he was shot dead by fanatics from the country Islam and two he was murdered by a secret cult the masons for his blatant revelation of the cult’s secrets in his book Eros Murder and Magic in the Renaissance. After finishing his article he felt contented. He sighed deeply and said to himself: ‘Couliano was good but I am loyal to the cult.’

Narrative Plot an example
There was Prime Minister Lady in X country. The Y people in that country were terrorists. She was warned by the intelligence not make people Y her body guards. She did not heed to the warning. Y opened fire with a light machine gun made her belly into smithereens

March 25th 2019

The stillness of the night was deafening—the crickets sang in harmony—the sky had eyes that twinkled—the big eye of the sky shone a beautiful aura of light—night serenaded like a painting—I am filled with love and I thank God for giving me the blessing to appreciate nature.

Rhetoroclasm
Rheteroclasm from Rhetoric and Iconoclasm is a new figure of speech where nature is contrasted with two unlike things. For example: the stillness of the night was deafening.

I had a strange dream today. In this dream I and my wife were working in Indonesia. There was a rock concert and we were planning to go for it. I had given 100$ to be changed at the school office. When I went there they gave me back the 100$. Then we were going in a car for the rock concert. When the car stopped in one place, I got out to buy cigarettes and when I came back there was no one in sight.

I thank almighty God for giving me a good erection. My wife became a poetic bed in the night; she transformed herself into an erotic poem. I have come to the conclusion that nothing is impossible wit God.


Allegory

It walked miles and miles on the earth. It recorded nature’s symbolism. The master used to polish it and make it shine. One day it was invited to do adultery. As it walked on earth—the head started spinning—it fell on to the hard floor of the airport and bled. Now it has come to Christ and is a merciful and repentant thief. No amount of storms will make it change. After a long period of serving the master, its surface came off. The master replaced it with a new one.

Biblification
Biblification is a new hermeneutic, interpretative tool of turning Bible incidents into idioms. For example Daniel in the Old Testament signifies Loyalty. Wedding at Cana is a miracle happening in life. Coin from the fish mouth, when Jesus asks the disciples to take a coin from the fish mouth and pay the taxes is an idiom for getting a financial bounty or having lucky windfall.

Catch of the Net
This happened in the New Testament. The disciples were fishing and caught nothing. Then Jesus said cast your nets on to the other side. They did and they got a cornucopia of a catch. Catch of the Net is an idiom for financial prosperity.

In the Gospel is recorded this parable. A man had two sons. The father asked the first to go and work in the vineyard. The son was not willing but later on he went. Then the man asked his second son to go and work in the field. The son didn’t go. Then Christ asked which of these sons will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. They replied. Then Christ said: it is the prostitutes and sinners who heard my word and obeyed my commands will go to heaven. Heaven has no place for

Pharisees and Sadducees.
Pharisees and Sadducees
While Jesus was doing his ministry on earth it was Pharisees and the Sadducees who were highly critical of him and condemned his miracles as hocus pocus abracadabra. Pharisees as an idiom means thickheaded and stubborn. The teacher in our school is a Pharisee. Sadducees cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.

Daily Journal

It rained mad today. I was engrossed in my thoughts. I started reading a book: Competing Fundamentalisms by my Uncle. In it he talks about Christian, Islamic and Hindu Fundamentalism. At least thank God that though Christians want to proselytize the world, they have not bred terrorists. Christianity as a religion is loving, compassionate and full of grace. I have started the chapter on Islamic fundamentalism. In it the author talks that the West is tainted with a negative picture of Islam. After finishing reading the book, I will write a commentary about it. I was thinking about the triple détente which started the World War. The détente between America and North Korea for peace, democracy and denuclearization deserves a new figure of speech which I call in my own words as a PARABOLE. A Parabole is a figure of speech where a negative semantic term acquires a positive shade of meaning. I think that Kim Jong Un the President of North Korea was a gentleman to have had a rendezvous with Trump. Parabole as a figure of speech alters the geo-political order of the world into geo-political-democracy. I have started experimenting Asemic writing with my Calligraphic pen. The scrawl with ink and littering the paper with abstract art gives the feeling of joy akin to copulation. I took three periods in the afternoon. Blog writing has helped me evolve the art of writing novel. It’s not easy to describe what the art of the novel is. The plot form today is a pulp of shit. The novel has got only one form and that’s writing it. According to Derrida, ‘to write is to have the passion of origin’. Modernism in the novel inaugurated the writing in streams of consciousness. 19th and 20th century novels personalized angst of man as the world was in turmoil. Of course the great novelists of the era are Camus, Sartre, Kafka and Joyce and not to exclude Virginia Wolf. The novel in the 21st century epiphanizes momentary experiences of life. There’s great art in the use of irony. Does irony signify the decadence of civilization? One has to experiment with newer modes of writing and that’s an ideal for a writer. A writer’s avenues are opening, thanks to the spread of blogging and free e-book publishing. To title anyone as a mainstream Novelist is pejorative one. The Dadaists and the Surrealists experimented with Asemic writing, a form of non-phonetic writing akin to art. One needs to experience altered states of consciousness to create a free reign of words. Rain is a needle drop amplified. Existentialism created the consciousness of angst. Within angst itself, there’s the consciousness to gratification. Self realization is not a perfect entity. Meaning is always in the process of creating an experience. Tropes today are littered with ironic sensuality. One has to create new meanings for old words. For example: Homi Baba the postmodern thinker as used the word uncanny. The uncanny is a strange experience of encountering the colonial other. When I had a chance to visit a brothel I did not. Now I regret it. Feelings visit me like a cloud of thought. I remember lying drunk at the airport in Singapore and missing my flight. When I woke up, I was worried and did not know what to do. I approached the ticketing counter and the girl there told me to pay seventy bucks. Thanks to God, I had hundred dollars with me. God has always been there with me to save me in helpless situations. I have no regrets in life. I live with the hope for tomorrow. I experience the now in angst and celebration. Of course I have started winning small lotteries and I am thankful to God for it. I am wondering if God will grant me favor to win a big windfall. Life is a journey through the literature of experience.
