The story is of a boy named Kidd who worries and struggles with every day problems. Then one day while walking in the forest Kidd comes across a tiny bit of stone laying at the base of a tree, a real arrowheadand this arrowhead can talk! With some surprise, Kidd discovers this gruff, adult-sounding arrowhead knows all about the what ifs which prevent him from enjoying life:
A cackle of laughter came from the old flint lying at the base of the tree. What if I was still a rock way up on that mountain side? What if the arrow maker had never found me and breathed his wisdom over me? What if I didnt know when someone needed to talk? Then where would I be? The arrowhead laughed again.
Do you know about what ifs too? Kidd asked. Do you have weird thoughts about what if?
I know all about what ifs. I know about the feelings of being afraid of things that might happen. Even though I know that they wont happen. I know all about the what if they happen fears. Is that the way it is for you?
Do you want to figure out how to be happier? the arrowhead asked...
Through the story of another boy from another time, the arrowhead weaves a tale that teaches Kidd a wisdom beyond his years. As Kidd learns how to be happier, those around him also learn to heal the hurts in their lives as the metaphor speaks to the inner-self of each and every one of them.
Though initially designed as a therapeutic tool, A Healing Legend: Wisdom from the Four Directions is a feel-good story that offers workable resolutions to real life problems. The metaphor embedded within the many layers will speak directly to your inner-self too as this healing legend reaches deep inside and you begin to learn wisdom from the four directions.
