DRAGONS CAN'T BE PUT INTO CAGES

The Reluctant Dragon by: Maxfield Parrish

The excerpt below is taken from a page in an Artist’s Journal,
Life: Writing on Water :


DRAGONS can’t be put into cages.
WHY?
Because they don’t “live” in the place we “think” they live…

The Western Mind tries to put everything into its “proper” place/box/cage…
If we can’t find that “proper” place/box/cage...
We breed Uncertainty
Uncertainty breeds Anxiety
Anxiety breeds Confusion
Confusion breeds Fear…
Along with Fear comes its demented cousin Anger
Anger invites Futility, Frustration and Paralysis to join the party
So?
Ask yourself…
What might happen if we didn’t try to cage (control) everything in the first place?

Remember…Dragons can’t be caged.

Make friends with our dragons and set them free. Boxes and cages do not a happy life make.
