Pretend

Stillness Power

Stillness Power


Animals

If you ask the Lion to be the mouse, the Lion says, “I can not BE the mouse. I can only PRETEND to be like a mouse.”

If you ask the Tiger to be the giraffe, the Tiger will say the same, “I can not BE the giraffe, I can only PRETEND to be like a giraffe.”

If you ask the Horse to be the monkey, the Horse will say, “I can not BE the monkey, I can only PRETEND to be like a monkey.”

If you ask a Man to be something He is not, He will say, “I can BE anything.”

Only Man is confused between what He IS and what He PRETENDS to be.

  1. As soon as I saw that art, I immediately thought of Tree pose, and how grounding of a position it is, and how it looks so simple, but really is a complex pose that requires a lot from me (more than I ever expected before I started yoga!! lol). And I think it does fit with your description, by grounding, I stay true to ME. I can DO so much, but I only want to BE me. 🙂
