The child in the Emperor’s new clothes did state the obvious. “But the Emperor has nothing on”. We must put the collective fear in limbo.
Like sugar, sitting, and smoking, we are barraged with skepticism and negativity, see these foibles as lessons to learn and not condemn yourself or others. Certain habits and people are in our lives as lessons. When we confront them, they can move on, or mutate into another foible. Human frailties need acceptance to have our inspiration blossom.
The weather is a dangerous subject. Politics also. The lack of trust with authority has led to force and manipulation. The rules and laws have been taken over to such an extent that Solomon’s baby with the two women is the theme. We can choose to keep danger in balance.
In the words of Michael Jackson “people are the same, wherever you go.” The Netflix series with Morgan Freeman on God, discusses all the aspects of the devil, aka “fallen angel”, as anger. Remember to not let anger turn inward and become depression.
Hinduism has the Goddess Kali. As a protector who fights evil, her image is frightening. But her sword severs the head of ignorance and ego. Her rage is a passion that impresses.
Kali is always invited to the party unlike Sleeping Beauty’s dark fairy. The King did not want the anger at his daughter’s blessings event. Luckily the last fairy lessened the curse.
We must temper this with humor and less fear. We already know how easily we can offend. The heart needs to be heard.
