As I was studying for my Master in Education and Psychology, I took a class on;" Children's books" which taught us to analyze the hidden messages behind the most well-know fairy and folks tales.
Those stories were written as an entertaining way to address more serious prospects of life, such as: Love & Hate, Lost & Found, Life & Death, 'Light" and 'Chaos'...
Fairy tales were suddenly, far more complex than epic stories for children, though you might wonder what can we get from knowing this today?
Aware of it or not, those stories affected us in a deeper way than we think.
Honestly, who doesn't dream to found the most beautiful royal love? Who doesn't wish to be a powerful superhero?!....
No need to hide! It's great to have dreams!
The only problem though is that when we grew up, we somehow forgot the whole story, to just remember the end, you know the famous ..."And they lived happily ever after.The End", which causes most of us, to suffer from what I will call:"Fairy tales don't exist syndrome"!
Let's take our friend "Cinderella": Do you remember the whole story?
Now, how does she behave when things were 'difficult' to say the least!?
Is it with self-pity, anger, jealousy or by blaming others?
No! It's with love, kindness, and abundant happiness that she considers each creature that crosses her path ! Which reminds me of another very special person.
Long time ago (somewhere between 1718-1800), in Anipoli, a small town of South-Eastern Poland lived a righteous man (a person who lives according to the rules of the Universe) by the name of Rabbi Zusha, beyond all the challenges he encounters,(and he had many) he was well known for his unique spirit, his constant care and his famous expression "Everything is for good!"
What is the similarity between this too ?
Imaginary or real, both teaches us that Love, Kindness, Joy and Modesty are the key to more blessings and True Happiness.
I truly, believe that we are all meant to experience the most beautiful life!
By appreciating and sharing what we have, we can only convince the Universe to give us more.
And now, as in every story :
Let's all share our special song.
Some rhymes to echo our soul
There is no need for drum roll.
Only Love to spread along!
