TIGER IN THE VILLAGE (0:41)
Imagine all is well in your world, everything is running smoothly, and you’re in your creative space diligently doing your thing. Suddenly the alarm sounds and the announcement is made “There’s a tiger in the village!”

Hi Michael! That jolting fear can keep us at our best...like anxiety before a performance but submitting to it in routine..no. not so healthy. Hearing a good word, something true, while the tiger licks it's chops, knowing peace..even when it roars, ..ahhh gotta go..! Gotta gig! have a super day! Rachel

Nobody wants to deal with a tiger in their village, but when one shows up you take it by the tail and face each day with the menace it has brought into your life. Nothing is normal any more as you hang on for dear life and pray it does the least amount of damage possible and if it escapes your grasp, it will flee away. "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world." I Peter 5:8-9

| Clarity |
It seems to me that being really present, in the Here and Now, should be peaceful, because that would mean not thinking (worrying) about the future or regretting the past. And that would be a state of heightened awareness.

I really thought you were going to go in another direction with this one, as you often talk about distractions:) Like the tiger is the newest distraction vs. the trigger for clarity and focus. But I guess either way you look at it, clarity and focus, in the time you need it, can only be a good thing! And something to work towards continuously... Thanks, as always, Jennifer www.JenniferMuhawi.com

| Instead of a tiger... |
A tiger in the village would certainly put pull everyone together, put everyone on high-awareness & hings would get done. But tigers also bring about fear and anxiety, and they are a threat. Facing fears can be good of course, but I don't want to be threatened all the time. I'd rather have Michael Dolan visit my village. Give us some inspiration, light an inner fire, show an example of how to deal with the tiger. Hanging around people who are clear and present and in the zone help me to be there. And, then I help others. Tigers can be good wake up calls though.

| Exhausting |
Always being on heightened alert, even heightened clarity and awareness, for me would be exhausting. Constantly being possibly threatened by "tigers" would be debilitating. Good to have clarity, awareness and alertness is good, but ALL THE TIME? No, sometimes it's good to be dreamy and muddy and "inner." Good to have the heights AND the downtime.

| Controlling the tiger |
I am the creative director of a medium size movie project, and a couple of times there have been threats to cut the budget. That's my tiger in the village! Although I have no control over whether it happens or not, I do have control over my reaction, and how it affects me personally. Thanks for the thoughtful fable.

What if instead of getting rid of the tiger you learned how to tame it?

Of course if your career is stalled because of too many tiger attacks you could always throw in the towel and move to another village!
