The deep wisdom of the legends and fairy-tails from all over the world keeps fascinating me.
One Russian fairy-tale called “The Fire, The Water and The Copper Trumpets” tells about 3 great tests a hero should undergo in order to reach his goal (marry a beautiful princess, of course!). 3 kinds of tests reflect 3 main problems we normally face in our personal development.
The water: all kinds of troubles of our emotional self. Depressions, doubts, our past, unfulfilled desires… All that heavy and sticky stuff (labeled as “the left-side” in the yogis terminology).
The Fire: all our action (mental and physical), stress, over-activity, anger, excessive planning and pushing, aggression towards others… All that hot and hard stuff (labeled as “the right side” in the yogic terminology).
As soon as we overcome all that and become a balanced, peaceful and pleasant personality – here comes the best part! The copper trompets: The glory of being good. The best test ever for our beloved ego. Interestingly, even saintly people have to undergo this test again and again – and some even fail! This is truly the most powerful treatment – to follow one on the ego-trip…
In a regular life we can see all these test going on daily with everyone – but the most obvious of course are the ones of the prominent people. I never try to criticise politicians, as I understand what kind of ” the copper trumpets” treatments they are in. And I would not like to be in their shoes!
But how to pass these 3 tests properly? My personal experience on this long way (as well as the one of the Russian fairy-tale hero) say: keep cool (mentally and vibrationally 🙂
Just watch the drama of life, take your decisions and enjoy. Just follow the golden Gate of the center.
