"The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

Giving access to wisdom:

1 "At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of the virgins were foolish, and five were wise. 3 When the foolish ones took their lamps, they did not take extra olive oil with them. 4 But the wise ones took flasks of olive oil with their lamps. 5 When the bridegroom was delayed a long time, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, `Look, the bridegroom is here! Come out to meet him.' 7 Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are going out.' 9 `No,' they replied. `There won't be enough for you and for us. Go instead to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.' 10 But while they had gone to buy it, the bridegroom arrived, and those who were ready went inside with him to the wedding banquet. Then the door was shut. 11 Later, the other virgins came too, saying, `Lord, lord! Let us in!' 12 But he replied, `I tell you the truth, I do not know you!' 13 Therefore stay alert, because you do not know the day or the hour" (Matthew 25:1-13).

Seems I have a pack of gryphons as guardians.

However as with all things, when it is your time to die, it's your time. They are just around to keep unintended things from happening.

You might want to try a pack of Trojans, then. They're cheaper in terms of upkeep and are known for their ability to keep unintended things from happening. ;-)

That parable is about being ready for your bridegroom who is Christ. We do not know the appointed hour of his coming for his bride (his people). It is about taking it seriously, and not living for oneself. It is a warning to not to believe that you can live anyway you want and then say you want him to say he knew you. If you want wisdom ask for it. He gives freely of the things he would have for you.

I would, but they died centuries ago.

Gryphons hunt their own meals.

[btw being a shaman don't have to worry about unintended consequences in regards children].

Study Pardes.

There are several levels of meaning to what's said. Your's is one, mine is another (or actually further one, by further I mean added detail).
