Reflecting out…

By Vichara

Before external change can happen, internal change must be initiated. Like the stone thrown into a pond of water, the ripples of simple acts of compassion, patience and love you give to yourself will radiate out to those around you pliable to change. Others will receive not all of what you radiate but fragments will and as it did with you, result in that small impact and ripple out and back to you and others.

manticore • \MAN-tih-kor\ • noun
: a legendary animal with the head of a man, the body of a lion, and the tail of a dragon or scorpion

Example Sentence:
The book, a collection of fantastic tales, has on its cover a vivid illustration of a wild-eyed manticore chasing a hunter.

Did you know?
A mythical creature of ancient fables, the manticore keeps company with the better-known unicorn, dragon, and griffin. Descriptions of the manticore's features sometimes differ (some accounts mention porcupine quills or poisonous spikes, for example; others depict the tail as having a serpent's head), but the animal is by all accounts a dreadful beast. The word "manticore" came to English through Greek and Latin, and is probably ultimately of Iranian origin. Etymologists think it is related to an Old Persian word for "man-eater."
