Originator or Sufferer?


Fable of the Train

Once upon a time, there was a train... On this mystical train, there were two groups: the Originators and the Sufferers. The Sufferers longed to become the Originators, and knew that it was possible, if only they could find the secret. There was no hierarchy in their train-based community, however, there was a clear difference in the quality of life between the two groups. The Originators seemed to be full of Aliveness, while the Sufferers experienced the same day again and again, living as passengers, fine but powerless. The Sufferers would put in so much effort to try to become the Originators, thinking they could work their way there. The Sufferers would sometimes even become the conductor of the train, imagining this must be the key to liberation! But alas, after a few days in the front, their suffering would return. The Originators tried their hardest to share the secret, but knew that the Sufferers would only understand when they saw the Truth for themselves. One evening, when night surrounded the train people, a Sufferer awoke to a startling sound. The train was halted. All of the others seemed to be sleeping... but wait! Where were the Originators? This sweet soul stood up and looked out the window. He suddenly realized, he had never left the train in his entire life! No one ever told him he was not allowed to leave the train and the door was never locked, but he never even imagined he could get off! So, with a burst of courage, this soul decided to wake up the others and slowly step off the train into the fresh night air. Wow! What an incredible sensation! The wind brushed their faces and the scent of nature surrounded them. Suddenly, they looked into the distance to see a group of Originators moving around. It was difficult to see what they were doing in the dark of the night. The group curiously walked towards the movement, wondering what they might find. Finally, they were close enough to see a sight that moved them all to tears; for when they saw it, they instantly knew the Truth about who they really were, and the secret to becoming an Originator... The Originators were laying the tracks that guided the direction of the train.
