Cupid and Psyche

A stunningly beautiful girl, Psyche, is born after two older sisters. People throughout
the land worship her beauty so deeply that they forget about the goddess Venus. Venus
becomes angry that her temples are falling to ruin, so she plots to ruin Psyche. She
instructs her son, Cupid, to pierce the girl with an arrow and make her fall in love with
the most vile, hideous man alive. But when Cupid sees Psyche in her radiant glory, he
shoots himself with the arrow instead.

Meanwhile, Psyche and her family become worried that she will never find a
husband, for although men admire her beauty, they always seem content to marry
someone else. Psyche’s father prays to Apollo for help, and Apollo instructs her to
go to the top of a hill where she will marry not a man but a serpent. Psyche bravely
follows the instructions and fall asleep on the hill. When she wakes up, she
discovers a stunning mansion. Going inside, she relaxes and enjoys fine food and
luxurious treatment. At night, in the dark, she meets and fall in love with her
husband.

She lives happily with him, never seeing him, until one day he tells her that
her sisters have been crying for her. She begs to see them, but her husband replies
that it would not be wise to do so. Psyche insists that they visit, and when they do,
they become extremely jealous of Psyche’s beautiful mansion and lush quarters.
They deduce that Psyche has never seen her husband, and they convince her that
she must sneak a look. Confused and conflicted, Psyche turns on a lamp one night
as her husband lies next to her.

When she sees the beautiful Cupid asleep on her bed, she weeps for her lack of
faith. Cupid awakens and deserted her becaues Love cannot live where there is no
trust. Cupid returns to his mother, Venus, who again decides to enact revenge on
the beautiful girl.

Psyche, meanwhile, journeys all over the land to find Cupid. She decides to go
to Venus herself in a plea for love and forgiveness, and when she finally sees
Venus, the great goddess laughs aloud. Venus shows her a heap of seeds and tells
her that she must sort them all in one night’s time if she wants to see Cupid again.
This task is impossible for one person alone, but ants pity Psyche and sort the
seeds for her. Shocked, Venus then orders Psyhe to sleep on the cold ground and
eat only a piece of bread for dinner. But Psyche survives the night easily.

Finally, Venus commands her to retrieve a golden fleece from the river. She
almost drowns herself in the river because of her sorrow, but a reed speaks to her
and suggests that she collect the golden pieces of fleece from the thorny briar that
catches it. Psyche follows these instructions and returns a sizable quantity to
Venus.

The amazed goddess, still at it, now orders Psyche to fill a flask from the
mouth of the River Styx. When Psyche reaches the head of the river, she realizes
that this task seems impossible beacause the rocks are so dangerous. This time, an
eagle helps her and fills the flask. Venus still does not give in. She challenges
Psyche to go into the underworld and have Persephone put some of her beauty in a
box. Miraculously, Psyche succeeds.

On her way toward giving the box to Venus, she becomes curious, opens the
box, and instanly falls asleep. Meanwhile, Cupid looks for Psyche and finds her
sleeping. He awakens her, puts the sleeping spell back in the box, and takes her to
Zeus to request her immortality. Zeus grants the request and makes Psyche an
immortal goddess. She and Cupid are married. Venus now supports the marriage
because her son has married a goddess --- and because Psyche will no longer
distract the men on earth from Venus.

Cupid at Psyche

Isang dalaga ang may nakabibighani at nangingibabaw na kagandahan, na may


dalawang nakababatang kapatid, siya si Psyche. Lahat ng tao sa kanilang lugar ay
hinahangaan ang taglay niyang kagandahan at dahil dito nakalimutan na ng mga tao
ang Diyosa na si Venus. Nagalit ang Diyosang si Venus dahil pati na rin ang
kaniyang kaharian ay unti-unti ng nasisira dahil sa paglimot ng mga tao rito. Kaya
naman inutusan nito ang kaniyang anak na si Cupid upang paibigin si Psyche sa
pinakamasama at pinakapanget na nilalang sa balat ng lupa. Ngunit umibig siya kay
Psyche nang nasilayan niya ang kagandahan ng dalaga at pinana na lamang ang
kaniyang sarili.

Samantala, nag-aalala naman ang pamilya ni Psyche dahil kahit na hinahangaan


siya ng napakaraming kalalakihan ay hindi parin siya ang kanilang pinapakasalan.
Kung kaya’t nagdasal ang ama ni Psyche kay Apollo upnag humingi ng isang tulong.
Inutusan ni Apollo si Psyche na pumunta sa tuktok ng bundok upang magpakasal
hindi sa isang tao kundi sa isang mapnganib na nilalang. Matapang naman na
sinunod iyon ni Psyche at nakatulog sa tuktok ng bundok. Nagising si Psyche
nakakita ng isang mansyon, nagmasid-masid siya at labis ang pagkamangha sa
kagandahan nito. Sa pagpasok niya sa loob ay kumain siya ng masasarap na pagkain
at sa kakaibang pagtrato sa kaniya. Sa pagsapit ng gabi, dumating ang kaniyang
asawa at agad siyang umibig dito.

Namuhay ng masaya si Psyche sa piling ng kaniyang asawa kahit na kailanman


ay hindi niya ito nakita, hanggang sa isang araw sinabi ng kaniyang asawa na
umiiyak ang kaniyang mga kapatid dahil sa kaniya. Nagmakaawa siya upang makita
sila, ngunit sinabi lamang ng kaniyang asawa na hindi iyon magandang ideya. Ngunit
ipinagpilitan parin ni Psyche ang kaniyang kagustuhan, at ng sila’y makarating sa
masyin ni Psyche ay nainggit sila sa kagandahan at sa gara nito. Kaya sinabihan nila
si Psyche na dapat ay makita nito ang itsura ng kaniyang asawa. Sa kalituhan ni
Psyche ay pumayag siya at isang gabi habang nakahiga ang asawa niya sa kaniyang
tabi ay sinindihan nito ang lampara.

Nang makita niyang si Cupid ang natutulog sa kaniyang tabi, binalot siya ng
kahihiyan dahil sa hindi niya pagtitiwala sa kaniyang kapalaran. Nagising si Cupid at
sinabi kay Psyche na hindi mabubuhay ang pag-ibig kung walang tiwala. Pagkatapos,
umuwi si Cupid sa kaniyang ina na mas naging pursigido na ipakita kay Psyche kung
paano maghiganti ang isang Diyosa.

Samantala, naglakbay si Psyche upang hanapin si Cupid. Siya ay nagdesisyon na


pumunta kay Venus upang humingi ng kapatawaran at pagmamahal. Pagkatapos
siyang makita ni Venus siya’y kaniyang pinagtawanan lamang. Pinakita sa kaniya ni
Venus ang maraming magkakaibang buto at sinabing ayusin niya ito sa isang gabi
lamang kung gusto talag niya makita pa ulit si Cupid. Kahit na ang gawaing ito ay
hindi kaya ng isang tao lamang; tinulungan siya ng mga langgam, na naawa kay
Psyche, upang ayusin ang mga ito. Nagulat si Venus nang matapos niya ito at dahil
dito inutusang matulog si Psyche sa malamig na lapag at binigyan lang ng tinapay
para sa gabihan ngunit madaling nalagpasan ni Psyche ang gabing iyon. Sa wakas ay
inutusan siya ni Venus para kunin ang ginintuang balahibo ng tupa sa isang ilog.
Halos malunod siya sa ilog dahil sa kaniyang kalungkutan ngunit nakarinig siya ng
isang tinig na mula sa halamang nasa tabi ng ilog at iminungkahi nito na kolektahin
niya ang mga ginintuang piraso ng balahibo ng tupa mula sa sanga ng matinik na
halaman. Sinunod ni Psyche ang payo ng halamang nasa tabi ng ilog at umuwi siya
kay Venus dala ang mga gintong balahibo ng tupa. HIndi parin makapaniwala si
Venus ngunit inutasan niya parin si Psyche na punuin ng tubig ang bote mula sa ilog
Styx. Nang marating niya ang nasabing ilog, napagtanto niya na mahirap ang iniutos
sa kaniya dahil sa mga batong nakahahadlang sa pagkuha niya ng tubig. Nang
biglang dumating ang ibon na siyang tumulong sa kaniya upang punuin ang bote.
Nagtagumpay si Pysche, ngunit hindi pa rin tumigil si Venus sa pagbibigay ng
pagsubok. Muli ay inutusan niya si Psyche na pumunta kay Persephone na siyang
nagtataglay ng kakaibang kagandahan at hulihin ito. Muli ay nagtagumpay si Psyche
sa pagsubok na ibinigay sa kaniya ni Venus.

Sa kaniyang paglalakbay upang ibigay kay Venus ang isang kahon, nagkainteres
siyang buksan ito at pagbukas niya bigla na lamang siyang dinalaw ng antok at
tuluyan na nga itong nakatulog. Hinahanap ni Cupid si Psyche at natagpuan niya
itong natutulog ginising niya ito, ibinalik ang mahika ng pampatulog sa kahon, at
dinala niya si Psyche kay Zeus upang hilingin ang pagiging isang imortal.
Pinahintulutan ito ni Zeus at ginawang imortal na diyosa si Psyche. Pagkatapos ay
ikinasal si Psyche at Cupid. At sinuportahan na ni Venus ang kanilang pagmamahalan
dahil ang kaniyang anak ay ikinasal sa isang diyosa, at dahil na rin doon hindi na
muling makagagambala si Psyche sa pagsamba ng tao kay Venus.
