The concept of Path, personal and collective is sometimes expressed in the symbol of the rail road, for its power and strength, fixed route. Some would say destiny. One of my teachers, of Franco-Haitian heritage in Cuba once showed me something like that: a rail road spike with razor blades used as a candle holder. To cut away undesired energies, people, situations, emotions. A Path guarded by light, protected by Ogou Fer, Saint George.
I have found it brillant. For the first time, from my etnological archives, I am sharing with you the symbolic and abstract, surreal world of real Vodú with no circuses, racial and social bias, in its most pure form of spiritual technology and folk life trouble shooting.
