I keep thinking about the many myths about dragons, and how use this imaginative creature to explore what comes from within. How will we tame our dragons? How will we create wonderful, adventuresome growth through knowledge of our dragons?
Today we are offering several guest creators #ZazzleMade for your perusal. We hope you will find these symbolic designs helpful to hang your thoughts around allowing peace and happiness within your world. …perhaps your curiosity will be peaked.
According to news media, we don’t always change the world for good.
We don’t change things for good when we war against what we want changed. It just doesn’t work! Wars usually create more trouble than good: war against drugs, war against climate change, war against poverty, war against racism, etc. We sometimes focus so forcefully on what we don’t like, we inflate our problem for ourselves and others.
Also, I don’t think we change what we don’t like by making people afraid. We get people’s attention by means of fear, but we don’t change the lifestyle of people we are scaring. We create focus on what we are afraid of, like building walls around countries, or locking up people we are afraid of, or even killing people we fear. Fight or flight. It seems like news stories consistently ignite human fear.
The solution is simple! We can solve challenges, make changes, in a more calm, peaceful, loving way!
I tell myself: Changes are made in MY world, by MY perspective!
I strive to live a peaceful life regardless of any person, place or thing.
A better way to say this:
I CAN live in a peaceful world, when I AM LIVING A PEACEFUL LIFE!
I have been groomed, reformed, refined, reprimanded, chiseled, quieted, asked to speak up, asked to change my mind, told I am naive, until I have felt it hard to sing my song!
Sing a song, keep it simple, keep it strong. Sing of good things, not bad. Sing of happy, not sad. (Song I remember from the Carpenters).
So here it is. I primarily work in collaboration with myself.
I delight when I see other humans who share this intuitive understanding. We often pass along our way and acknowledge the other.
Our world does change one step at a time. It changes in ways we like when we allow the change we want into our own life.
To Sum Up: Here is a poem I came across yesterday on Facebook.
My grandmother once gave me a tip:
In difficult times, move forward in small steps.
Do what you have to do, but little by little.
Don't think about the future
or what may happen tomorrow.
Wash the dishes.
Remove the dust
Write a letter.
Make a soup.
Advance step by step.
Take a step and stop.
Rest a little.
Take another step.
And then another.
You won't notice, but your steps will. grow more and more.
And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.
