Daily Draw: Prince and Dilettante

There’s so much to be wary of here, my friends, but the bottom line is this: you are on a path of leadership and learning, but you’re not there yet. Don’t be all acting like you’re the King when in fact you’re still the Prince. Don’t get into debt against future earnings that you haven’t earned yet (in other words, watch it with the credit cards), and be studious and careful about where you’re headed. Learn what it takes to be a leader. Being a King (or Queen, of course) is much, much more than just wearing a crown. You take on the responsibility for the health of the land and all beings supported on the land when you accept the crown of rulership. Learn about that land. Learn about the people. Learn about the beings who can’t speak for themselves, at least in human tongues (the animals, the plants and trees, the insects, the waters and everything that lives in them, the birds). Wherever you’re headed, do your homework and make yourself worthy of the lands and people you would rule. You’re on the path and moving, and there’s no stopping it now. The flow is inexorable. So be ready for when you get there.
