Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:50

Narrator: Male

Dragon Magic Excerpt:

Still, the curious dragon wondered why people acted so strangely.  A magnificent tail flipped back and forth, back and forth as the little dragon thought and thought.  The dragon was bigger than the people. Remembering that the animals had also been afraid at first, the dragon wondered if size was the reason.  Then the dragon thought about what had changed, so that the bunnies, deer, birds, frogs, toads, turtles, and bears felt comfortable.  The dragon waited patiently and quietly.

Eventually, the animals approached.  Once one came near, others felt safe.  Oh, that’s right, the animals worried the dragon would eat them.  Was that what the people were worried about?  Yuck.  What a silly thought.  A person couldn’t possibly taste as good as roasted brussel sprouts, or roasted carrots, or roasted sweet potatoes; certainly not as good as an apple, orange or banana.  Having figured out the source of the fear, the gentle dragon knew waiting patiently was a good idea.  Fortunately, the wait was almost over.

Today’s Meditation: Today, you will focus on relaxing your body a little bit at a time.  Starting with your feet, moving up to the top of your head, and ending with a focus on your entire body, you are sure to feel calm and relaxed.
