Kuku to Kiki: Remember this story? “There was a non-conforming sparrow that decided not to fly south for the winter. However, the weather turned so cold that he was reluctantly forced to fly south. In a short time, ice began to form on his wings, and he fell to the earth, landing in a barnyard, almost frozen. A cow passed by and crapped on the little sparrow. The sparrow thought it was the end, but, the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing. Just then, a large cat was walking by and, hearing the chirping, investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird and promptly ate him.”
Moral of the story:
- EVERYONE WHO POOPS ON YOU IS NOT NECESSARILY YOUR ENEMY.
- EVERYONE WHO GETS YOU OUT OF POOP IS NOT NECESSARILY YOUR FRIEND.
- AND, IF YOUR’E WARM AND HAPPY IN A PILE OF POOP, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT.
Kuku: Isn’t that hilarious Kiki? See, I can tell good stories AND they are funny!
Kiki: Is it funny because so many compromise their happiness and peace by not speaking their truth? Or, because so many trudge forward, keeping their mouths shut, afraid of upsetting others?
Isn’t that disempowering, Kuku? Who wants to live that way?
Kuku: It is a funny narrative because that is the way the world works, and everyone seems to be doing it. Besides, it is the safest way to operate in a hostile world. Kiki, why can’t you see I am actually helping others by stating the obvious?
Kiki: Anyone wanting to make meaningful changes has always been a non-conformist: Jesus, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Thoreau, Apostle Paul, Galileo, Whitman, Walesa, and so many more!
NOT Keeping your mouth shut requires quiet courage, determination, and fearless faith to seek the TRUTH. Your truth.
Kuku: Now I wish I never told the story of the non-conformist sparrow.
Kiki: Oh Kuku, are you feeling unhappy and in a pile of poop?
Kuku: Maybe you should keep your mouth shut!
Kiki: Well Kuku, “Sometimes hearing the truth takes more courage than speaking the truth.” (Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words)
