geese fly south
chant a warning
Our instincts warn us of danger, keeping us safe from the perils that pursue us.
Shadow: “Perils that pursue us? Are you paranoid, Terry?”
Terry: “There’s a big difference between paranoia and awareness. In dreams, we must turn and face the pursuer before the pursuit stops. We must hunt the hunter, turning our fear into courage, running toward our fears rather than away from them, confronting the inner and outer monsters in life.”
Shadow: “So is the market a monster?”
Terry: “It depends on how we approach the market. The market monster will attack us if we approach it timidly, with halting footsteps, with downcast eyes, with a divided heart. Looking the monster in the eye, take the trade; don’t back down.”
I’ll Be Back.
Learn to remain steadfast, because the market monster will return. Like the terminator, it says, “I’ll be back.” And back it will come, like the winter wind, pelting us with ice, making us bleed.
A Radiant Sun
As the geese fly into warmth, they teach us to delve down into our deepest feelings, discovering a radiant sun that melts the ice in the wind. We heed the geese’s warning: “Don’t let your heart turn to ice. Embrace the thawing power of love, remembering that “perfect love [casts] out fear” (1 John 4:18, KJV). Embrace the monster with love.
