The elephant walks while the dogs bark. Indian proverb.
so I had a dream about a baby elephant trapped in the mud and that the villagers were trying to dig it out. the elephant is me, the mud is trauma and fear and the villagers are my village who do want me to be free.
So then this morning, I remembered the elephant proverb. Then I watch Brad Yates about releasing the fear of punishment and it’s like an elephant who is tethered to the ropes that domesticate it but the elephant doesn’t realize yet that it is strong enough to break the rope and the the ropes of fear, trauma and its pain are the ropes and I can break free of it.
I’be tried in my way to be free,
