“The iron chain and the silken cord are equally bonds.”
Johann Cristoph Friedrich Von Schiller
This is the last blog in the series of five about the Elephants in the Room.
I thought the story was apropos to make a point. Whether your chains are emotional, physical or spiritual, the message is the same, but since I deal with sexuality and sexual pleasure and sexual fears, I thought this really was the great ending to my series!
A friend of mine tells a story about baby elephants. In countries where elephants are used as working animals, they must be trained when they are very young and not yet too powerful.
The first thing a trainer does is fasten a heavy manacle and chain to the baby elephant’s leg, securing the other end of the chain to a metal stake driven deep into the ground. When the elephant tries to walk freely about, it cannot move any further than the end of the chain.
Although the animal may try repeatedly to escape, it is held in check by the unyielding restraint.
After a period of time, the baby elephant stops testing the strength of the chain. It remains within the circle’s limited circumference, completely passive. It has become thoroughly convinced that it cannot escape.
At this point, the elephant can be used in the field and easily transferred from one location to another without concern. All it takes to hold the animal, despite its enormous size and strength, is a light rope and a thin wooden stake. Once the baby elephant has been conditioned in this manner, he remains convinced for the rest of his life that what once was true will always be true.
I watched an interview with David Letterman and Jane Pauly on CBS Morning Sunday Show. I was surprised by his statement. His words tell me we all have stuff which we work on or through.
“I’m naked and afraid because it’s so cliché but I’ll share with you. Any enormous uprooting change in my life has petrified really petrified me, but once I come through the other side the rewards have been unimaginable.”
Are you ready to get rid of your elephant ideas? It’s never too soon or too late to change our convictions, especially if they are not true!
I’m open for one on one life mentoring and accessible for seminars.
