“The only defense against the world is a thorough knowledge of it.” – John Locke
The other day there was an article about a sheep that had been out in the wild for so long that its wool had gotten so long and thick that wolves were no longer able to attack it. If a sheep has a natural defense that is so strong against it’s worst enemy then we do as well.
The issue is, most of the time, like the sheep when they are shaved and not in the wild we do not use these natural defenses.
Sometimes we might even be ashamed and try to hid or diminish them.
I think 2020 has shown us that now more then ever before we need to nurture our natural defenses.
It is the time to do your best with what you have, to look within instead of outward.
