The Snow Angel and the Black Dragon – A Holiday Story & Nondual Parable

nondual parable

Hey everyone- I’ve always been a fan of Paulo Coelho and Richard Bach- Here’s my best attempt at their brand of spiritual parable writing…Enjoy: 

Long ago,  nestled in a pastoral pocket of the crag peaked Scandinavian mountains, there was a tiny village called Lucencia.   Lucencia was home to the guardian spirits of balance, the snow angel and the black dragon. The snow angels’ purpose was to bring gifts of love, light, wellness and joy.  The black dragons’ purpose was to bring gifts of shadow, sorrow, pain and loss. For eons the dual gifts of these guardian spirits blended in peaceful unity in the hearts of the Lucencia villagers.

One year, for whatever strange reason, the villagers decided to play hide and seek with the black dragon, and they played it very well; too well in fact: They enjoyed the black dragons’ absence and soon the game turned deadly serious. The black dragon was banished forever.  After a time the villagers completely forgot about the black dragon and anything reminiscent of him was quickly hushed, dismissed, or denied.

Stinky Spiritual Awakening Happiness Parable – Part 1

Hey everybody- something different. This is spiritual parable from my book 21 Days. I think the principles of supreme-advaita-non-dual-awakening-realization can be best explained by farting monkeys, unhappy elephants, and over-intellectual butterflies.

This story has made people laugh, cry, and think long – about finding real happiness. It would be an awesome animated cartoon: Please tell your uncle who works at PIXAR about it. Please tell your DIRECTOR friend Steven Spielburg about it. Please tell your ACTOR cousin Jude Law or Jack Black about it. Please tell the SCREENWRITER who lives down the block about it. Please tell that children’s book PUBLISHER who takes his kids to the same school as you do about it. Okay well, at the very least, post this blog on your FACEBOOK page.

PART 1. Enjoy…

One day, Elephant woke up terribly unhappy. This was very strange for Elephant because he was usually a jolly soul; not today, however. Today, he was unhappy, and he couldn’t figure out why. He’d had plenty to eat recently. He wasn’t sick. No one was angry with him. No one he knew had made him sad. Even Hyena, who sometimes irritated him, hadn’t upset him. All he knew was that his heart was heavy and something, from his head to his toes, just didn’t feel right. He decided to ask for help from his friends Monkey and Butterfly.

The sun rose to its zenith, high in the clear mountain air. It shone down upon the three travelers as they plodded along the dry rock- and dirt-strewn path. Elephant swung his big trunk back and forth, assisting the momentum of his large torso and legs as he walked. Monkey and Butterfly were sleepy eyed as they jostled upon Elephant’s big back. It was almost high noon.

PART 3. Enjoy…

Time passed. The afternoon sun began its descent into the western horizon. Big Mountain shifted its gears and prepared for the evening liturgy. A gaggle of clouds rolled in and shrouded its peak. Wind whipped down its slopes. The temperature slowly dropped, and the leaves of the great fruit tree rustled with the change. Elephant awoke to a very strange sensation on his trunk. It was cold. It was wet. He opened his eyes. On his trunk had landed a single snowflake. Somewhere near the peak of Big Mountain, a snowstorm had begun.
