Nurture Yourself – A Fable – On Belief

As we walk this new journey we call life through the rocky roads of Covid 19, there will be paths paved with stones of different shapes and sizes that will cause us to stumble and fall. These create suffering, heartache and pain. 

Recently, one such stone is the controversy of vaccinations. There are many, different medical doctors, scientists and government officials that are telling us a variety of information about these vaccinations. Although we’re perplexed by it, some follow through while others do not.

But, it’s most difficult when friends or family begin to create a hindrance with conversations about how they feel about the pandemic masking or vaccines. The complexity of COVID 19 and how it affects each individual can be confusing. 

Quarreling, cross words, aggressive swording and angry disputes aren’t conducive to anyone. I’ve decided these conversations aren’t worth having. Too many emotions are involved, and logic for another’s thoughts are tossed to the wayside. All of us need to review our own personal health and decide what is best for us. However, we should always be mindful to respect what another person wishes to do with their health, too.

In Love and Light,

Namaste,

Isadora 🙏🏻

I thought this fable said it best:

 The donkey told the tiger, “The grass is blue.” 

The tiger replied, “No, the grass is green .”

The discussion became heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so they approached the lion. 

As they approached the lion on his throne, the donkey started screaming: “Your Highness, isn’t it true that the grass is blue?” 

The lion replied: “If you believe it is true, the grass is blue.” 

The donkey rushed forward and continued: ′′The tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him.”

The king then declared: ′′The tiger will be punished with 3 days of silence.” 

The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, content and repeating ′′The grass is blue, the grass is blue.” 

The tiger asked the lion, “Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?” 

The lion replied, ′′You’ve known and seen the grass is green.”

The tiger asked, ′′So why do you punish me?” 

The lion replied, “That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is degrading for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with an ass, and on top of that, you came and bothered me with that question just to validate something you already knew was true!”

The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn’t care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.

Namaste
I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  3. Beliefs are such an individual thing. I’ve become aware of that so much more as I’ve gotten older–maybe a little wiser. Like you, I feel that there’s no point in engaging in arguments with opposing views. I don’t appreciate it though when those opposing beliefs jeopardize my health. So I have to be extra careful to take care of myself. A thought provoking write, Izzy. xoxo

    • I’m happy to see you here, Gayle. We’re in a stressful time. I agree with you. We have to do what we have to do to keep ourselves safe. Unfortunately, some take that as a way of avoiding them or putting their opinions down while not respecting them. I hope we can all come together for the greater good of all. Have a great week … Isadora 😎
