“I have a theory that within all of us is a deep yearning to be free, to follow our dreams and find the greater purpose of our lives. Yet somehow we’ve become incredibly domesticated – like animals that were once wild, and are now tamed.
Why is it that the wild speaks to us at such a deep level? I think it’s because it touches something deep in our cellular memory; a recognition of the greatness of that freedom. We’ve closed down our capacity to go off and re-wild for fear of what it may unleash. Yet, look to the wild – it flourishes. Domesticate a wild animal or bird and something closes down. Have we become so tamed that we are unable to access the wild spirit in us that wants so much more? If anything, our capacity to think big and be great has been trained out of us, boxed-in, by the walls of our lives. A wild animal does not choose to be caged, so why on Earth do we accept it in our own lives?”
Greatness is inherent in each and every one of us from the very moment we take our first breath as humans newly entered into this strange and wonderful land called Earth.
