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 got heard of this distinctive and extraordinary firm, based by Man Laliberté, a dreamer entrepreneur who reworked a small troupe in Montreal, Canada, right into a worldwide phenomenon that has awed and impressed tens of millions.
One among 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 forwards and backwards in gradual movement.
When he hits the bottom, individuals collect round him, poking and prodding his limp physique, ultimately stealing his wings, tying him up in a fishing internet, and hoisting him again up into the darkish sky.
That’s when the immobile, limp Icarus frees himself from the web and manages to fly once more regardless of having misplaced his wings.
All of us face conditions in life once we get burned, we fall, or others strive to remove our wings — our objective, ardour, or hope — however because the story says, we are able to fly even with out our wings.
Relating to well being and canines, there’ll at all times 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 dog, 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 do-it-yourself 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 nicely that feeding pure species-appropriate meals is best for the well being of all canines.
There’ll at all times be individuals who try to steal the wings of others, however that can’t stop us from elevating our collective consciousness, data, and knowledge.
I really like what Vaclav Havel, the primary democratically elected president of the Czech Republic, as soon as stated:
“Fact and love will overcome lies and hatred.”
