Friday Flash 55 – Venom

Venom by !DagoDesign on Deviant Art

Venom by !DagoDesign on Deviant Art

Vicious words spit from
the venomous tongue
are far more deadly
than the bite of a
poisonous snake…
for at least
 the snake’s
bite
can be mutated
with
anti-venom
…yet…
the bite of the
poisonous tongue quickly,
and deliberately
kills
the spirit-
the venomous tongue
often leaves
 permanent damage
to the hearts of the multitude

Quote for the Day:  Sticks and Stones may Break my Bones, but Words Hurt Long After the Initial Blow.  ~CordieB.

In reality, words can and often do hurt.  However, the spiritual individual is able to counter hurtful or false words with self knowledge and truth.  The spiritual individual will not allow the ego to manefest the hurtful words in his or her heart; for she or he knows the beauty in their being and the truth in their hearts.   Also, those who live by the spirit, will not spit hateful words to others or himself.  For it is the ego that constantly battles with the spirit to speak hurt, hatred or falsehood, in order to make the ego feel good about itself.   Remember when mom told you that kids teased you in order to make them feel big – well she was correct in her wisdom.  Some adults have not grown beyond their childhood and continue to tell lies or  say hurtful things simply to make themself look big by making others look small.  It is sad actually – the insecurities and fears of some people.   The next time you are tempted to say or speak a hurtful word, remind yourself that it is your ego and insecurities which tempt you to do so.  Beckon the love, truth and wisdom of your spirit to manifest itself.  When we practice walking and talking in the way of our core self (spirit),  and what we know to be true in our hearts, we will neither utter nor absorb hurtful and/or false words. 

~Peace, Light and Love…..CordieB.

The Boy and the Dragon ~CordieB.

So full of mannishness, quite an impressive brave boy! 

He worshiped mom and dad; second only to his toys… 

that sparked imagination; making him noble like his dad.

His sword he proudly made himself; his armor, titan clad.

He knew he had a job to do; he had to do this on his own; 

for mom and dad were fast asleep; into the woods, he’d crept alone… 

to stop a fire breathing dragon from evading his family’s peaceful home. 

He practiced sorcery faithfully for weeks before this fateful eve! 

Although he feared the dragon’s fire; he knew he could not leave. 

He had to ensure this beast would not blow the house with fire… 

And so with magic titan sword in hand, he tipped into the mire. 

Although his skills were excellent on his Xbox 360, 

He knew an actual defeat might prove a bit more tricky!

As he moved deeper into the woods, near the beaver dam, 

he saw the dragon lying down, but upon closer exam . . . 

he realized the dragon was almost fast asleep… 

Suddenly the dragon opened one eye and surprisingly began to weep! 

"Oh boy, why must you slay me?  I mean no harm to you!" 

"I have no friends in this world, and wandered here to you." 

The boy swiftly stopped the sword in mid air, it would have pierced dragon’s lung!

Boy and Dragon began talking and playing; having lots of fun!

And that’s how a lifetime friendship of boy and dragon first begun.

The morals of this story: 

1.  Bullys are usually just reaching out for friendship! 

2.  Dragons and Boys can be friends too!  They just need to communicate!

3.  Fear can oftentimes cause our imagination to get the best of us.
