Heroes fail to do anything amazing-they just do what is needed.
Right time –right place-right action.
Every time you see one on TV-they all same the same thing.
“I am not a hero-I just did what anyone else would do.”
Have you been paying attention? We humans have a large capacity for doing the wrong things-In fact there is a good chance that someone doing the wrong thing created a situation that required a hero. A hero to do what is required and bring an elegant solution to an inelegant situation.
Heroes spend time being prepared to step in-they are trained and they are compassionate. They are ready, willing and able.
There is a mindset about them that makes them feel part of the world-knowing that they can make a difference.
If you feel that way – you are a hero sitting latent and sooner or later you will get a chance to prove it.
It may be a small or big contribution- you may have already done it and not even realized it.
Doing the right thing in the right time and right place brings a certain lining up of the power in the universe that is bigger than all of us.
Maybe that is why heroes don’t even comprehend what they have done-they just see it as playing a small part in the general scheme of things. They see the action as a simple yes or no to answering the call of humanity.
We need more heroes.
This quirky song by the Crash Test Dummies sums it up for me.
And it also makes me think of this Little Feat classic.
Just doing what is necessary without complaint.
[mini rant ahead]”Little Feat’ without Lowell George should be called “Tiny Feat” and “Queen” without Freddie should maybe be called “Princess”–you can not remove the heart and soul of a band and pretend it is the same. [end of rant]
I am still willin’ to keep on bloggin”
Cheers from the cave!
[this is not the post I am writing-I am finishing up an illustration for a piece on Ronnie James Dio and “Rainbow in the Dark” that is wearing me out….I don’t mind writing on some of the dark in our souls but this song has taken me for a bit of a ride—it should be my next post—-this one is just to let you guys know that I am still out here]
