"One person, Prophet?" The Child asked.
"Yes, Child, one person." The Prophet said.
"That's all, one person?"
"Didn't I say one, Child?"
"Sure you did, but I don't understand why one person is so significant?"
"One person with a vision rocks the world, Child."
"Is that why the world isn't rocking?"
"Yes, Child. No vision. "
"Is being one with a vision dangerous, Prophet?" The Child asked, thinking she had cornered The Prophet by giving him a question he couldn't answer.
"You could say it's safer to flock together than to step out and be different."
"Does having a vision make you different?" The Child asked.
The Prophet observed his apprentice with her legs stretched out on the lily pad. The whale had moved close to the pad so she could lean back comfortably on him as she learned.
"What your goal, Child?"
"To rock the world."
"Well, you won't rock it without your vision."
"Your vision is your roadmap. It plots your course and keeps you going. Without vision, you get lost, Child."
"Oh, I see."
"Do you really?"
"Yes, but doesn't vision bring responsibility, Prophet?"
"Good question, Child, but that's enough for today. Would you like to take Mr. Whale for a ride?"
Being one with ourselves can be challenging... to have the vision and to follow one's dreams takes fortitude and hard work. I'm glad the child has the strength of character to be one with herself. Thanks for your wonderful story. You are a champion!ReplyDelete
Hello My Dear,Delete
You're so right on. Following your dream takes a lot of fortitude and hard work. Thank you for coming by.
Hi Pat -- thanks for coming by my blog on your A to Z travels. I love this vision of the whale as a prophet. I think we'd all like to rock the world but often feel one little person can't make a difference...so we don't try.ReplyDelete
That we don't try is the saddest part. Thank you so much for dropping by.
The Child is a thinker, and one who will ask The Prophet challenging questions in search of truth. Nice story. AtoZer http:www.writer-way.blogspot.comReplyDelete
Thank you for coming by and yes the Child is a thinker and The Prophet is challenged with her questions.
Thank you Patricia and for the reminder that one person can make a difference. One vision and heart in the right place can change the world.ReplyDelete

Yes, we often forget that one person can make a difference. Thank you so much for dropping by.
What Gwynn and Susan say -- one person, one with herself, one vision with the heart in the right place can change the world. Yes, this takes responsibility.ReplyDelete
