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 will have 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 hundreds of thousands.
Certainly one of their performances that’s most memorable to me is the Flight of Icarus. From the midnight blue darkness of the large high, a brightly lit white-winged Icarus emerges, falling to the bottom whereas transferring his wings forwards and backwards in sluggish 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 web, 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 after we get burned, we fall, or others attempt to remove our wings — our function, ardour, or hope — however because the story says, we will fly even with out our wings.
In the case of 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 Data 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 effectively 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 stated:
“Fact and love will overcome lies and hatred.”
