Daily Draw: The Dragon, The Arch, and Thistle

Today’s draw is about what we do to earn our living, and how it fits (or doesn’t) with those who went before us. What did your parents and grandparents do for a living? Is it the same as what you’re doing now? Why or why not? It’s difficult comparing our circumstances today with those of our grandparents and great-grandparents because they had to deal with either or both of the world wars, the Great Depression, and god knows how many other wars, pogroms, upheavals, and changes throughout the world during their lives. They probably wouldn’t know what “following your bliss” even means, let alone how to go about doing it. But chances are good that they found a way to make money somehow, and were maybe even successful at it. How can you tap into that energy? How can you draw their teachings and wisdom into your active, everyday life right now? One way to do it is to not be afraid to walk. Literally. Nobody drove as much as we drive now, passing over more ground, faster, than anybody ever has previously. Slow down. Look where you’re going. Feel the feet of thousands passing beneath you, and be proud of your people for their place among them.
