The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
The Lion in the Marble: Once Upon a Time... ...there lived a little boy about 5 years old. The little boy was shy but curious and loved to wander the cobbled streets in his little Italian village.
One day he noticed a huge block of marble being delivered to the artisan of the village. The little boy followed the marble down the street, and watched it being set up in the Master Sculptor's workshop. The child was fascinated, and came to watch the man and the marble whenever he could for several weeks.
The little boy and his family left the village for a number of months to go and visit family in another part of the country. When the boy returned, he was anxious to go see the man and the marble. As soon as he was able, he scampered down the streets to the workshop. He stopped in his tracks, he gasped, he stepped back, he couldn't believe his eyes! Where the block of marble used to be, there sat a large and powerful lion.
The wide eyed little boy looked at the sculptor and whispered quietly, "Sir, tell me, how did you know there was a lion in that marble?"
The sculptor smiled at the child, "Boy, I knew this lion was in the stone, because I saw him there with my heart, and then I removed everything that was not the lion."
