Pan's Music

All too often, when we are trying to move into new experiences, our concerns, cautions and fears lead us into feelings of "panic."

The word comes from the Greek meaning "related to Pan."

Pan was the Greek goat-god that led warriors and armies to victory by encouraging fear in their opponents.

Later, though, Greeks and Romans interpreted Pan to also mean passion, excitement and the kind of music (with his flute) that leads us into mystery and magic.

The new and different can bring bring feelings of panic. You can let the feelings convince you to turn back, or you can use them as emotional music that encourages you to quicken your step into a new reality.

Find something to do that scares you this weekend, and have a great one.
