Good Morning!


Having a 7 year old, I’ve been given the opportunity to get reacquainted with Scooby Doo. I can remember many a Saturday morning plopped in front of the TV in my pajamas watching Scooby Doo and his friends. What I remember most was that at the end of every episode, the masked villain would be revealed as an ordinary person looking humbled and embarrassed. I remember being so relieved to see that the scary monster didn’t really exist, and, like in the Wizard of Oz, the great and powerful monster was really nothing other than an ordinary person hiding behind a curtain or mask.


When I think of what made Scooby so loveable, I think of his easy going way, his loyalty to his friends, his not taking life too seriously, and his love for Scooby Snacks. Even when he wasn’t trying, Scooby and his scruffy friend, Shaggy, inevitably found a way to save the day, proving once again, that with Velma’s brains and Daphne and Fred’s good looks, it’s a goofy dog and his trusted friend that win in the end. Giving us all hope that, like Scooby and Shaggy, without great looks or brilliant minds, we, too, can save the day. I like that.


Although I can relate more to Velma than I can to Daphne, I’d really like to be more like Scooby: A little goofier, a little more authentic in expressing the entire range of my emotions, a little more adventurous, and to enthusiastically and guiltlessly enjoy more Scooby Snacks.


I’d also like to remember that no matter how scary a person or situation can be, behind the curtain is often a scared little man (or woman) just trying to get their needs met by pretending to be something they are not. And, that in pulling off the mask (or drawing back the curtain), we’re now blessed with the chance to really get to know that person. In the end, the Wizard turned out to be a really nice guy from Kansas. I’m so glad that we got to meet him aren’t you?


I challenge you this week to do one of two things: Either be a little more Scooby-like and lighten up or have the courage to draw back the curtain and reveal more of your authentic self to the world. Either of the two will make the world a better place, would you agree?


Wishing you a playful and authentic week,

 NEW! Carole's Latest Book Recommendation

Spirit Song: The Introduction to No-Eyes

Spirit Song: The Introduction of No-Eyes (Paperback)
by Mary Summer Rain

No Eyes is a blind Chippewa visionary living in a remote Colorado area and Many Heart, a dream walker, are the teachers in this profound journey through the spirit world for Summer Rain. In the Ancient oral tradition they guide the novice along the true path to understanding of who she is and her place in the continuing life of their people. This is a wonderful look at the way knowledge has been passed from generation to generation with strong emphasis on what is good and what might trick the spirituality-seeking novice into taking a wrong path.
