Muchness? What the heck is that? In Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter told Alice the last time he saw her, she was “much muchier.” He commented that there was much more self and soul in her then, less doubt, and lots more courage. She actually did have a great deal of courage because she did, in fact, destroy the Jabberwalkie. That Jabberwalkie was the dragon her soul was hiding behind.
I think many of life’s journeys are about building up our “muchness” in order to permanently slay the dragons hiding within. It definitely wouldn’t be an easy thing to accomplish since we humans tend to bury our memories deep within our souls. Those hidden memories are in fact the food that feeds the Jabberwalkie.
Wondering what would be the best plan to get rid of our Jabberwalkies?
Don’t feed them . . .
