You cannot catch what you don’t see and the great white tiger

white tigerYou can’t catch what you don’t see; do you keep them sacred like a great white tiger?

I was wondering what I should write about today.
I have half a dozen half written posts, but what should I write about today?
Then, as I was doing some energy work on myself, it came to me.

I have a young friend, he is about 4. He is my chiropractor’s son, he lives in Baltimore with his mother, but for about a week every month he is in Syracuse, and I always make it a point to spend a few hours with him.

Today was the day, and we were playing, and singing, and laughing. He goes to school, and he had learned a lot of new songs, so he was singing a lot today. One of the songs was “You can’t catch what you don’t see”

That is what I want to talk to you about today. That you want to see what you don’t see.

You see, my method, the Michelangelo method is based on that. It is one thing to know what you want in your life, though most people don’t, but even if you do know what you want, unless you see what’s in the way, you will never get there. What’s in the way needs to be dealt with, but you can’t catch what you don’t see.

Most people that I know, especially men, don’t want to see it. Too bad. If you can’t see what’s keeping you where you are (because you don’t want to see it) you are stuck with there! That’s all there is to it. No wonder there are so many insignificant people, underachievers, could-have-beens, wasted talent out there.

This reminds me of one of my favorite stories about the great white tiger and children’s dreams.

A research group visits this Indian village that is right by the jungle where the great white tigers live. The great white tiger visits the village many times a year and feeds on the people there.

In India great white tigers are sacred and can’t be killed, so you can imagine what it’s like.

The researchers asked every child in the village about their dreams. This is what they found:

The little ones, under 7 dreamed about hiding from the tiger. Children between 8 and 10 dreamed about outrunning the tiger. Between 10 and 13, the dreamed about outsmarting the tiger. Youth over 13 dreamed about facing the tiger.

Because they are stuck in one of the younger ways of coping with challenges, with hiding, outrunning, outsmarting them, instead of really facing them square.

In the Michelangelo method we face the issues and eliminate them, one by one, so people can spend their lives accomplishing their dreams, fulfill on their potential, and live their life as the masterpiece they were intended to be.

You can’t catch what you don’t see.

This is not a game for kiddos… Are you up for the white tiger?
