I want to share a short and powerful fable which offers our minds a glimpse into the potential ability to expand our consciousness and our lives. I have come to learn that we tend to live within the confines of what we are willing to believe, and more and more I am realising that what I previously believed to be true about myself and the world I live in, may not be the way it really is.
Mostly I still play this game of life by the rules in which have been handed down to me, but the cracks are forming and the walls of my perceived foundation are beginning to crumble. I am on a mission to expand and spread my wings so far that they break through the confines of those walls, and when they fall, I will be able to experience reality as it truly is: miraculous.
There was a mighty lion, Janro, who was born in a small zoo. As she grew, she made it a point to investigate, as best she could, all of the aspects of the world around her. All of the other lions in this zoo had been born in captivity as well.
One day, another lion was added to the group, but she was captured in the wild. When she spoke of the vast savannas, the tall, spreading trees, the birds in the sky, and the other wonders she knew of, Janro and the others scoffed. “How could this be!” They would exclaim.
“We’ve had plenty of time to investigate this world. We know precisely the limits of our cages, what other kinds of animals there are, where we came from, and how we get fed. What you are telling us is preposterous! Prove it!”
