From a lizard

September 23, 2015

And the proverb goes, “a lizard can be caught with the hand, yet it is found in king’s palaces.” It’s about adaptability, scalability. A lizard can make its home in the palace as well as an average man’s house. It can be quite comfortable at once in both locations. It finds audience with the king and the common man. One must learn to scale up or down based on our circumstances. To abound and to be abased. But here’s a catch, it’s always easy to scale down, but it takes stuff to scale up. It takes hard work, experience, effort, blood and sweat to stand before kings. But it is easy to also let stuff puff one up. Instead it is a profound quality to set aside all knowledge and relate to a child as a child, and a layman as a layman. And yet when a king walks in to effortlessly switch to a tete a tete with him.
