I just have to share todays message in the SOM. Read on.
Micheal Meade shares his version of an old teaching story of the great African Savannas where the circle of life pours forth in the form of teeming, feeding herds of water buffalo. As the herds eart their way across the plains, lions wait in the tall grass nearby, anticipating the chance to prey upon the grazing animals. In preparation, the oldest and weakest members of the lion pride are stationed opposite from the rest of the hunting pack. Having lost much of their strength and most of their teeth, they still can mightily roar. Their roar is far greater than their ability to bite.
These old lions go off and settle in the grass while the hungry lions wait and watch. As the heards enters the area between the hunting pack and the old lions, the old ones begin their booming roar. At the sound of the roaring, most of the herd panics. Blinded by fear, they turn and flee from the seeming source of danger. As they rush wildly in the opposite direction, they run right to where the strongest lions are waiting in the tall grass for dinner to arrive.
“Run toward the roar” is a longstanding motto for facing your fears. Running away only allows the fear to consume us.
(excerpt by David Ault – SOM May 30, 2020 entry)
Despite our circumstances sometimes running toward that which we fear strengthens our inherent truth – We are powerful beyond measure – run toward the roar!
