From Icarus to Inspiration: Overcoming obstacles and hovering excessive
Just some days in the past, I had the possibility to see Cirque du Soleil. A lot of you’ve gotten heard of this distinctive and extraordinary firm, based by Man Laliberté, a dreamer entrepreneur who remodeled a small troupe in Montreal, Canada, right into a worldwide phenomenon that has awed and impressed tens of millions.
One in all their performances that’s most memorable to me is the Flight of Icarus. From the midnight blue darkness of the large prime, a brightly lit white-winged Icarus emerges, falling to the bottom whereas transferring his wings backwards and forwards in gradual movement.
When he hits the bottom, folks collect round him, poking and prodding his limp physique, finally stealing his wings, tying him up in a fishing web, and hoisting him again up into the darkish sky.
That’s when the immobile, limp Icarus frees himself from the online and manages to fly once more regardless of having misplaced his wings.
All of us face conditions in life after we get burned, we fall, or others strive to remove our wings — our goal, ardour, or hope — however because the story says, we are able to fly even with out our wings.
In relation to well being and canine, there’ll all the time be individuals who will attempt to clip our wings of exploration and braveness by discounting or ridiculing the achievements of others.
Not too long ago, after the world’s oldest canine, Bobi, handed away, a British veterinarian began a marketing campaign to have him disqualified from the Guinness World Information as a result of he was fed selfmade unprocessed meals. How ridiculous!
I’m appalled by the actions of this veterinarian, as I’m completely sure that Bobi’s age was actual. Regardless of who was behind this smear marketing campaign, you and I do know very properly that feeding pure species-appropriate meals is best for the well being of all canine.
There’ll all the time be individuals who try and steal the wings of others, however that can’t forestall us from elevating our collective consciousness, data, and knowledge.
I like what Vaclav Havel, the primary democratically elected president of the Czech Republic, as soon as mentioned:
“Fact and love will overcome lies and hatred.”
